Arrival Story: Trey became a part of our family just because of his appearance. I was volunteering at Delaware County Shelter & we really had no intention of getting another kitty, but when the picture of Trey (then Grey)appeared across my desktop, it was heart stopping. I thought there'd been some mistake & my Jakey had been mistakenly put up for adoption. Reading about him tho' I learned that he was a kitty of a broken marriage & was going to the shelter if someone didn't adopt him. When I showed his picture to my husband, he said get the address - I did & Trey came home the following weekend.
He is a very different personality than Jakey...Jakey was always on my lap while Trey is more reserved. But appearance-wise, even tho' I'd had Jakey 13 years, if I didn't look carefully, I couldn't tell them apart. And now, since Jakey has passed, Trey is such a heaven sent gift & while not piling onto my lap, he will share my ottoman & chair.
It wuz 3 years today when I was jus' layin' around in dat other house, not expectin' anything much to happen but the sound of the cat opener, when all a sudden' da doorbell rings 'n' dese two really frenly humans come in. My furst Mum took dem to da kitchen 'n' gave dem coffee, (BLECH) 'n' den wut wuz to be my reel Mama called me over. She had special treats...she had my heart!
My furst Mum wuz happy to see dis 'n' she said 'YOOZ DA ONES!'
I wuzn't sure 'bout dis til dey brings a cage in...*gulp*. I tried to make a break fur it but dey *did* have doze treats 'n' hesitating just dat one minute landed me in dat cage. O.o
But yoo nose wut? It wuz to turn out being da best day of my life? Dey wuz rescuin' me! I wuz two dayz away frum goin' to a shelter 'n' I dint even nose dis!!! Dey wuz intendin' to bring me HOME!!! Home, wif Jakey 'n' Darius, 'n' Bailey too. Dose boyz was so good wif me 'n' I loved dem right off.
Since dat day so much has changed...Jakey passed away, den Bailey did too. I didn't know wut sad felt like before den. It hurts lots! But I helped my Mama get over dat 'n' we rescued a new bruver Milo frum da shelter...den another baby bruver Dalton. Another sad...baby Dalton wuz sick inside 'n' we dint know dis. He died, making us all so sad...sad, sad, sad house it was losin' a li'l baby like dat.
Ar kitty Mama 'n' kitty Papa fixed some of da sad in a hurry tho' 'n' gots tiny babies Murray 'n' Dharma...ar FURST sister!!!
Since dat time we've been such a happy fambly! Everyone is well 'n' da babies Mur-Mur 'n' Dhar ar growin'...dey'z one year old now!
It shows how much can happen in three years. Now I don't want any more changes. Ever, EVER! Fings ar perfect just da way dey ar!!!
Well, 'cept fur Milo still stinkin' his tongue out lots 'n' Dharma havin' da girlie att-ee-tood!
But us dudes just ignore her! We jus' gotta teach kitty-Papa how to do dis now!
Gotta go now 'n' check the food bowl - it's been an hour!
Ar Mama's taking time out of her hectic schedule......okay dat's her story. I'z just repeatin' wot she's sayin' all da time. We'z here knoes she is playing wif fabric 'n' stuff in da craft room 'n' playin' wif her guitar in between times. She duz dis ever time it gets close to Sandy Claws comin'...not sure wot dat's about but it always ends up good.
Murray 'n' Dharma get ta be in da room 'cuz Mama can't trust to leave dem alone wif da Chrissymus tree, dastardly duo dat dey ar!
So here it is, anovver year wif yummy smells 'n' stuff to play wif, greenery 'n' baubles hangin' around temptin' us all. Milo gots it figured out I fink. He sez it's a test!
Sandy Claws is tryin' to see who's really naughty 'n' who's nice, den all ar stockings will be filled by how well we pass da test! I'z good of course! I'z always good...perfect in fact! Not a flaw!
Last year we had ar baby bruvver Dalton here wif us. He liked Chrissymus so much 'n' he got lots in his stockin' too. I sure wish he was still here wif us, but he's not...we'z slowly gettin' used to da idea he's not comin' home.
But we have Murray 'n' Dharma now!!! Mama made dem Chrissymus stockings for all dere stuff. Not dat Sandy Claws will bring dem much 'cuz deyz soooo bad all year! Dey just have a few days to make good now.
Anyway, me 'n' all ar fambly here want to wish everone a berry, merry Chrissymus 'n' a happy noo year! Mama is even going to put a movie on my page wif music she did for everone - everone watch 'n' enjoy...
I guess I can be glad there aren't three dat moved in! ~sigh~
In case everyone doesn't know yet, ar Mom added babies to the family again. Dere names ar Murray and Dharma and what can I say? They have too much energy, I'm sorry. They'z racin' 'n' jumpin' when I'm trying to sleep. They stick dere little golf ball sized heads in front of my mouth when I'm trying to have lunch! Dere hangin' off my tail when I'm trying to go to my favorite sun spot! And they bite my heels all da time! Dey do it toooo much! Just too much.
But now at least they're keeping Milo from boohooing & wanting me to play wif him. He just doesn't understand that a kit of my stature and station should not be chasing fake mice around the floor...tsk! Or racing around a plastic ring wif a ball inside...gah! Sure, I do it but only because I'm trying to entertain him. I couldn't care less myself, y'know?
But, if I sit up high where I don't get any tiny nails stuck in me, they're kinda cute. And it was kinda nice the other day when Dharma curled up wif my on my fluffy on da otterman. Yes, I can remember a time waaaaay back 6 long years ago when I was a little silly like dem myself and I guess I gotta be patient now and wait fur dem to grow a little too.
And I guess it's up to me and Darius too, the two elders to teach these kids how to keep dere own diaries. My work is never done...~*sigh*~
Anyway I think Mom and Dad went out to get this pair so I could get a little peace but I'm not sure that's gonna work either 'cuz they love my tail/feet/ears/body & all parts in between. And...dey pounce on me all the time. PULeeeeze! What do I look like?? A pile of leaves?
But, it's all worth it I when I watch Milo having so much fun wif the littlest one named Dharma. He really is having fun wif her and it's making' my heart feel happy to see my brother happy after all dis time.
Angel Dalton....if you had anything to do wif dem comin' here to live wif us, ya done good, little dood...
Dere isn't so much sadness in da house any more. ♥
