Arrival Story: We adopted Moppie through the last vet I worked at, he was approximately 4-6 weeks old at the time. Someone had found him outside somewhere and had brought him in, it had looked like he had been out for a little while. We took him in, we had Blade as a kitten then too and they instantly got along perfectly. They have been best furriends ever since
Bio: Moppie was very friendly, he loved giving out headbonks, especially to Blade and our dog Stewie. As a kitten he was a professional toe catcher at night. He has grown to be a big manly cat, who can be shy to any new situations. He has always had a weird habit of licking toys to death. He never ate toys, not until the very end. He was an amazing cat, we love him very much, he is greatly missed.
I just wanted to thank all of our furriends who stopped by on Moppie's Rainbow bridge day. It meant a lot to us. I tried not to think about what day it was in advance as I would have to go through the memories again when the time came.
When the giftes started coming in, we tried to remember Moppie as the good cat he was. He was the sweetest cat you'd ever meet. When he was a kitten he loved to play fish under the blankets trying to find my toes, unfortunately with very sharp nails. He loved treats like most cats do, but he was very gentle, he would rarely take it from my hand, he would let it drop to the floor then eat it. Moppie, Blade and Stewie would always fall asleep with me and wake up with me, they would always be the highlight of waking up. I love seeing them cuddle and get along so well together. Moppie loved his toys, he would always lick the fuzzy ones to death until they were disgusting, or he would dump them into the water fountain. Although, he was shy when strangers were over, he was very outgoing with direct family. He loved getting headbonks from Blade as well as me. :)
It is not as nice thinking back to Moppie's last week here on earth, but I can't help but have flashbacks.
At work we just had a cat that was in respiratory distress in morning, I put it on oxygen and got it breathing again, but then when the owners came 4 hours later (they had been told she had not been doing well) the cat passed as they were making the end decision. This just reminded me how I had been called when Moppie was not doing well at the emergency clinic, when I got there within 2 minutes he passed as I was there with him. I'm glad I got my chances to say goodbye- Before his surgery I gave him big hugs and kisses hoping it wouldn't be the end. But it was hard to believe that a 2 1/2 year old cat would pass just like that... I was devastated when he crashed at the end of surgery. I hoped that he would make it through the night, then I would know he would have had a fighting chance...
I am glad I got the time with him that I did..
Blade Misses him a lot, I could really tell in the few months after his passing. When we got Galaxy we they may get along and he would have a friend again, we were disappointed that they did not get along at all. They still do not get along as well as I'd like. Blade does groom him now and then, but they do get in little arguments here and there, they never cuddle up together or anything. Galaxy also likes to hog playing time. Unfortunately they are both head strong and want to get their way, Blade seems to be submitting and backing off letting Galaxy get his way.
Many thanks from Moppie's Mom + Blade and Galaxy
Moppie will forever be in our hearts.
I'm sorry if I brought anyone down, Christmas time is not meant to be a time for tears. But wanted to let everyone know that I have appreciated the support.
The kitten has been here for about 5 days, he is settling in. Having a ball playing with toys Mom has set out for him. He is getting used to Stewie our dog, and last night even went up to him from the back to sniff him, he did this twice! Stewie would like to play with him but he realizes kitty is not ready for that .
We have brought Blade downstairs to see him but Blade is unsure of him. He goes into stalk mode to spy on the kitten. I think he is a little jealous kitty gets to play with his toys. And that kitty is invading the house.
We are now trying to have kitten in a room and both eating on both sides of the door, but Blade doesn't trust it enough to be downstairs eating. We will have to work with them slowly and patiently. We may try it at a door upstairs and see what happens.
We have thought of a few names:
Your welcome to suggest other names, or let us know if one here stands out to you!
Here is his started page, keep in mind his name may change:
Ok. So Most if not all of you know about how I tragically left to rainbow bridge. If you've been following Blade's few diaries you may know that Blade has been missing me and asking a lot more attention from Mom. When Mom got back from vacation he wanted even more attention because he had missed out on a lot while she was gone.
Well Mom has been thinking for a while if she should take another kitten into the family. She has been thinking long and hard about it. Mom was going to wait till kittens came in at her work but the doctor is taking a while to organize getting kittens in.
Grandma mentioned a friend of a friend had kittens. They are living in a shed/barn/garage thing, The kitty Mom is outdoor. So Mom had been staying away from it as barn cats aren't nessicairly looked after as much. But grandma convinced Mom to go see them anyways, so she did. There is a black and white one, which Mom was hoping for, and he is really cute. He is 12 weeks on Monday, he has had no vaccines, flea treatment, deworming or vet visits, neither has the mom by the looks of it.
The issue of non vaccination obviously puts Blade more-so at risk. We would bring him to the vet before introducing him to Blade.
Any advice? Sould I steer clear of them or seriously consider him?
Mom is going to try talk to the vet this week and see what she says. The vet can be picky, but
Mom trusts her opinion and if she says no Mom probably won't get him. But Mom is thinking about it. After all, Blade and I were both strays to some extent.
Mom will add a picture on my page of him. It is the biggest one, there is actually two litters, one of the Moms ran off so this Mom is a surrogate the the newer kittens. The one we are looking at is the original kitten and the last of that litter.
