Arrival Story: I had lost my kitty of over 19.5 years to CRF in June of 08 and at the end of June 08 I adopeted booboo she had been on death row in the feral cat cage. She was not very loving once I got her home and by October 08 I was missing my skids even more than ever I really wanted a loving cuddle kitty. This is when little boy entered my life by way of my sister. We were leaving the movies late one night and after she got in her car and I got in mine she called to tell me "i have a cat" well my sister already had lots of cats at home two of which she had recently adopted from me after I took two kittens from a feral cat colony (the same colony I later took alley, calie, tiny and moe from) so my sister really did not want another cat but just couldn't leave this one in the parking lot of the theather. She later told me that when she heard him cry she sat down and said"you can come out or not I am not going to chase you or beg you to come to me" he came running to her. All my sister's cats are rescued from the street just like little boy. He was just PURRING and headbutting us in the car so I said I would take him and attempt to find him a home since I already had a cat. Well I fell in love with this little lover kitty, so now he has a forever home with my husband and I along with the rest of our kitty family. He is king of our kitty household and since he was once a "trashcan kitty" from the streets hetried for a long time to eat anything that smells or looks like food.
Bio: When he first came to live with us he spent most of his time with me"moma" everywhere I went he was right there and he not only waited by the door for me when it was time for my return from work but he would streeeetch real tall reaching for the door handle like he wanted to open the door for me. He pawed pawed me to sleep for many months after I took him in and he still wakes me most morning for some kitty snuggle time. When we pet him he will grab our hand with this paws and pull it back down close to him if we attemt to stop petting him before he is ready.
Little boy is a beautiful black and white tux kitty with lots of love to give he really dislikes sneak attacks by the younger members of the family but he love to be the sneak attacker and he loves playing chase with booboo. Wants to share everymeal with mom and dad hates to share mom and dad time (or the food) with the other kittes. He was so goood with the kittens when we choose to keep the four that were not adopted out he raaised them like a "father cat" alwlays letting them know when they are getting out of line.
We just read the diary Linus wrote and he feels bad and has to be away from home till Friday!! he could use some purrs and catster love.
We love you Linus and we are purring and praying you feel better real soon.,
Love little boy and family
sure can make a BIG difference. I am doing waaay better and the need to spray is about gone altogether!!! I feel much more calm and playful and much more like the kitty I was when mom first brought me home before we became such a big kitty household. The feliway plug in is always plugged in and mom sprays some calming spray around the house often, I can no longer go out on my own the door is blocked and I cannot get to it. I can only view the outside world from the upstairs. We have a timeshare going on with the office chair that sits facing the window that looks out over the courtyard. I wear my calming collar 24/7 now.
Mom is very pleased with the changes in me and the other kitties seem to be doing ok with the no view of the outside down stairs, we got a kitty tree by the window upstairs and we can sit in the windowsill upstairs too so we are all making the adjustments even mom who does like the way the sunlight is closed out of the entire downstairs area.
Today was a great day mom was very tired so after church she cat napped all afternoon with us. Not sure where the girls were napping but Tiny and I were on the bed with mom all afternoon, MOL tiny laid right by her head so if she turned her head she was kissing his forehead.

is over! Thanks everycat for your support it was great to hear from so many of my friends and wow there are some good suggestions too "my cat from hell" gotta check that out. (sorry for this long up date on me)
OK so I screamed at mom all the way there after it was so easy for her to get me in the carrier (I am just to easy sometimes) but we are allowed to play in our carriers and I used to take trips to the country with mom.
Back to the visit once I got there I kinda just shut down totally mom was concerned I had really gotten sick, well i was scared to death we dont' go to the vet for regular shots mom and dad don't think we need them since we are all indoor only. So here I was thinking she was about to ditch me for being a bad peepeeing boy cat. The vet lady poked me and prodded me and put a stick up under my tail then she put a needle in my belly! Said she needed some urine and my bladder was too small for her to express it, well let me tell you I know how to express my own bladder, So I am healthy got no UTI problems and the vet lady told mom there was no way anyone vet would have "forgotten" to ell her if I had would have had fruit in only one cup at the time they took them so they did not even check for that. Mom is still concerned this could be part of my issues.
At this time mom and dad are going to treat my behavior issues. The vet gave mom a number for a animal behaviorist but for now the vet suggested they close off and not allow me out into the enclosure where I might encounter other cats and also to block all the windows downstairs so I cannot see the outside world (not sure how Moe and the others will take to that). I have a calming collar (we have not used that yet mom's not sure about it) and the feliway plug ins are back in the wall. We used to use them when Ivey was here cause she was so aggressive but we have not had one in a while cause it seemed like the rescue remedy was working and we have just tried so many different things! For some reason I have been much calmer since I returned home from the vet who knows why maybe the vet visit made me rethink my position or the plug in is doing it's thang. IF these changes do not help me (mom will watch some of "the cat from hell") then we will maybe see another vet about my fruit cups (really need to check to be sure there is not one left full) Next we will see the behaviorist and as a last result we will try the drugs. Paws crossed I will continue to be as calm and laid back as I have been since I returned home. Everyone welcomed me back without a fuss mom was concerned about their reaction to my scent from the vet. One thang the vet said kinda puzzled mom, she said you never know what might set him off even the visit today might trigger him so watch him for the next 24 hrs you know cats an really hold grudges and he might be upset with you for a while. Well we never heard that kitties hold grudges not really and i have been so very good since we got that visit over with. So do you hold a grudge?
Sorry again for the long post I seem to be very talkative tonight.
