Finally we are plus members again and mom says she is going to let us on to play and visit like we used too, wow we have missed being here but it was really nice to have a little more mom time, we fear we might lose that time when mom starts up dating for us. IT was tough for mom to be here for along time after Boo and Ivy were gone so suddenly. Funny how that is when Alley died mom found this was the very place to be and wanted to be here all the time, Maybe she had more time to heal before she came here and with BooBoo and Ivey there were too many memories of their life here. Alley and skides were already at the bridge when we got here. Tonight mom went to Boo's page after we updated to Plus but it still made her cry...., sigh....
Enough of all that life goes on with us four kitties and mom has taken some new photos and new we can upload them to our page and we also have some pretty photos that were given to us we were not able to upload before we can get those up this week too.
Love yall and hope you are all enjoying the holiday season. We are doing well and looking forward to Catsmas.
Merry Christmas and God Bless.

I had a great day and look a the cool photos I got thank you! Thanks for my comments and pawmails, cards and prizzies.
I spent much of my day napping in that towel closet again Mom had a friend over to help her clean and I didn't want to visit. Before she got her to help, mom was putting clean sheets on the bed in the guest room and Moe and I had a blast mom would love it if she could video us while she makes the bed. Moe left the "lump" under the sheet for a while mom finally made her get out.
I also spent some time playing with the new door stop MOL mom doesn't want me to play with them, I woke her up this a.m. at 5:40 to the music the door stop make when I smack it. Later today she wanted to nap after cleaning and I wanted to play with the door stop again this time the one in the room where she was napping MOL! she had to get up and put the blanket over it so it would mo longer make music.
Making the bed was the most fun today I wish we could change the sheets every day.

Yes it is door stops I wrote about in my last diary I love them and tonight as Moe and little boy hid and watched ( they were skeered of the noise) I went to town on one of the new ones MOL tore the rubber tip right off then mom put it back on and placed rolled up rug behind the door I am looking for the door stop thingy! Little boy got brave when the noise stopped and came in to give ma smackey paw he has no sense of humor (whispers he is a scardy cat)
Mom had guest over this week end so she cleaned all the towels and put them in the closet then she closed the door so I could not get to them. Later that night her uncle said he reached for a towel and there was a large kitty with big blue eyes in there MOL someone left the towel closet open for me and I took back my space. Mom was up late washing a few towels so every hooman could shower the next day and I got locked out of the closet again. This morning before mom went to work she did the usual cat check and the tinister was in the closet sleeping on the last clean towel. Mom really needs to leave the towels for me and put some more in a closet of her own.

little tiny thingys and if I touch them they make a furry odd noise kinda like biiinng, ever since we first came here to our furever home we have loved to mess with them mom does not like it and no one else really notices them anymore. I still like them mom put news up almost every where because the old ones were kitten worn and weary, little boy started abusing them first when he got here way before we ever found our home here.
Tonight I found one of the new ones and as mom called to me to leave it alone I was so entranced with it I did not even pay any attention to her.
What are they do you know? have you found them in your house and if so do you like to play with them tooo? if you do play with them does mom or dad want you to leave them alone?

I know many of our friends already know our story but we met some new friends this year so I told our story again here.
My fur mom was a stray cat (see moma Ivey's page) abandonded by her family and pregnant with us my human mom found out we had been born and told the lady taking care of my fur mom (moma ivey lived in a kitty colony on the streets) she wanted to catch us all and get us healthy so we could have out own forever homes. I was the first kitty she caught cause I couldn't see my eyes were infected and I had an upper respirtory infection so I didn't run from her and I was not with my furmom that day I was all alone (like no one wanted me cause I was so sick. My name's tiny but I am just about the biggest kitty in my family Little boy is now a little lighter than me. I am a little over 3 yrs old now and a healthy kitty it was not always like this when I was 6 weeks old they all were thinking I was not going to make it. When I was 8 weeks old the doc said I should have weighed atleast 2 lbs and I weighed less than 1 lb and I didn't wanna eat any more. Mom is so good and made me eat and drink with a sringe. She loved us, fed us, and tamed us then she prayed over us all that we would have loving kitty cat homes, only my brother wiley was adoped out we all stayed here in mom's house with the two kitties she alreaedy had BooBoo and little boy so there were six of us for a while but mom and dad have a big two story house with kitty trees and houses lots of toys and hidey places. In the three years since I been here, my sister Alley died with FIP, them Moma Ivey came here and died six months later and two months later BooBoo got FIP and died too. My mom wishes she could save all the kitties in need of help we are so glad she found us and kept us together. Mom helped the lady that had taken care of our fur mom get all the kitties in the "colony" fixed and returned to the "colony" so they won't have more kittens that need homes. There are only four of us now and the house still seems kinda mt sometimes We are all loved and well cared far and treated pretty much like spoiled little human children. We are very glad to be gotten and living happily ever after with mom and dad as a family.

I do not like visitors of any kind into my home, it is really scary for me. Mom has tried since I was very little to get me used to other people but I just do not like visitors. I will come out and say hi if it grandma but no one else. I go right into hiding. The vet told mom when she first rescued us that sometimes the feral gene of the father just never leave the kitten no matter how much you tame them. No of us are really what mom calls feral really we have been her kitties as fosters since we were six weeks old ( the vet guessed out ages on our first visit) so we were never really feral and our mom was tame (see Moma Ivey's page),
Anyway after all that we are all still scared of strangers. This week end mom has the little ones over again, Moe got brave and came out to see them but she did not let them touch her. That girl is crazy to even take a chance with those little people.
Mom's brother in law (not much of a cat person) said to mom "are they that scared of people are they feral something?" mom just said yea they were born outside with one peeps to love them until I came along.
So how do you all do with visitors and what kind of start in life did you come from were you born into a loving home and adopted out or did you start out as feral and if you did, do you like strangers.

I have cried many times tonight and I walk around with the shoestring in tow. I cry from the top of the stairs and mom comes running to see I am ok but why do I cry? I really want to play. SO now I have gathered the shoes strings and the foil ball in the hall at the top of the stairs, and mom just found them. It touched her heart finally now she will get off the computer where she was working and come play with us.
Do you get play time with your mom and or dad? I miss it so much if she doesn't make time for us.

Hello constant reader...MOL mom reads Stephen King and he says that. Anymew I am happy to have constant readers and new readers. Please see part 1 and part 2 of my story if you are here as a new reader.
When we last heard from Smokey she was hunkered down in the midst of Ike. Mom and her sister and family were all together at Mom's house when they got the news that the storm had destroyed most all of the communitity were moms sister and family had made their home just 10 months earlier. It was many days after the storm had subsided when residents were finally allowed back into the communitity. Mom's sister returned to what was left of her
home It was devastating and neighbors and friends were still attempting to get in touch with each other and determine what was left of their homes. Mom's sister and family began to rumage through the structure
of what had once been a home to see if there was anything left to save. IT was sad to look across the street where smokey's family and once lived there was nothing left of what had once been home to smokey and her family. One of the neighbors made contact with the nice couple that had loved smokey and given her a home, they ask if anyone had seen smokey and when no one had; they let them all know they would not be coming back there was nothing there they wanted to salvage and there was nothing to come home to.They were going to start over somewhere no where near the water or the coast line. Sadly there were many families that lost their home and never came back. There were other families that began the process of rebuilding their homes over the water, everyone began to pick up the shattered pieces of their lives and start over. The destruction was so complete and heart breaking, mom's sister said she could feel more sadness in the weeks after the storm than she did when she first herd the news that her home was gone. Everything they had ever known except for each other and their furbabies was now gone. The quilts grandma guilted, the baby books. christmas ornanaments that had been collected since child hood this was just a few of the many items they missed, there was no material thing left . In the beginning they went here everyday for some reason it seemed like the thing to do. There was always little bits of their old life uncovered from the ground (later they would wonder why they looked for it) it just seemed right to try and salvage what they could and each day other people's stuff washed up on the shoreline. One day mom and her sister were working to clean up the destruction so they could rebuild and mom pointed out an intact roof that was way over on the other side of bay they could just barely see it across the bay and they were not sure what it was but it sure looked like a roof and they wondered if it was a house that had washed into the bay or if the roof and been blown off after the house was destroyed.
It was several weeks after smokey's house had been destroyed that mom's brother in law had stopped by to do a little clean up (they were going to rebuild one day) and he spotted..... a very skinny gray kitty! Wow where had that kitty come from? It looked like smokey so he talked to the kitty and gave it some kitty food
(kitty lovers carry it in the trunk of the car) then he went home to the temporary home they were living in until they could rebuild. When he told mom's sister about the kitty she was so mad at him that he did not bring that kitty home! he said "we don't need another cat" she said "it sounds like smokey" he said "no there is no way that cat survived the total destruction of that house" Mom's sister still had the number for the couple that used to be her neighbors so she called to tell them she was pretty sure smokey had come home! |They were very happy to hear this still they were not sure it was really smokey but said they would be down to check it out in two days. Mom's sister went out to the wreckage the next day and there was smokey! Waiting at the same house where she had first met mom and her sister almost two years earlier only now the house had been destroyed by water and wind rather than fire. Mom's sister just knew this was smokey and she talked to her and loved her and she called smokey's name and the kitty answered to her name. Then she fed her some kitty food and then she gently picked her and took her to be reuinted with her pawrents! The next day when mom's sister met up with her neighbors they were very tearful and excited to see smokey. They took her to be checked by her vet and they confirmed that indeed Smokey had risen from the flood waters to come home to her family. Many weeks later the roof mom and her sister had spotted was "banked" right near an old driveway of one of the destroyed houses and it has been determined to be the the steel roof that had once covered smokey's home. The general thought around the community is that smokey had managed to catch a "ride" on the roof until it "landed" on the other side of smokey's world, then she began to make the long journey back to the only place she had ever called home. We will never know all she went through to get back home but we know she did not give up on love and family she determined to live and make her way back against all odds to the ones that loved her. In the words of my friend Orange Ruffy she has once again come in from the cold.
