Arrival Story: I had just lost my 18 year-old orange tabby, Simon, to CRF. I dearly wanted another orange tabby and looked everywhere for one at the time. I finally found one in a small local pet store that has kittens from shelters up for adoption. It was love at first sight for me when I saw this very small orange kitten with HUGE paws and the biggest nose I had ever seen on a kitten. ;) I held him for one hour waiting for the vet there to check him out and he never complained. He's an amazing kitty for so many reasons! I later found out that he was an Amish barn cat that the shelter had rescued due to some bad conditions on the farm.
Bio: Louis is smart, loving and one large kitty. He does have FLUTD the disease is stable and has been for some years. He has an obsession with white plastic forks but only those from McDonald's as we have tried others. He walks around and carries a fork in his mouth and sings to it. They are like his security blankets! He's very attached to them.
On July 18th I was chosen as Cat of the Day! Was I ever excited. That is sure an honor. We celebrated at the Bridge all day and night. Heehee.
The reason I did not post was because we couldn't log into Catster. It said they didn't know who we were. Can you imagine that? ;) But they finally got it all straightened out. Thank you Catster for helping us get back into the site and of course, for my CotD honors. Thank you friends for the pawmail, gifties and not forgetting about me since I have become a fur angel.
Today marks one year since I made my journey to Rainbow Bridge. I always meant to say goodbye to all of you but things happened very quickly near the end of my life and I really did not get the chance then. I miss you, my friends, and I miss my family- especially my mom. I am never far away but my presence is not the same as it once was. I love you guys so don't ever forget that. Time for me to go now.
