I am feeling pretty sure that life as I knew it is gone away for good and now I will live the good life the rest of my years. However I am not taking anything for granted, rather instead I am living and enjoying each day to the fullest! Today I met again with Moe, she is kinda a sweet heart but...still a stranger so my guard is up. I also met at the same time with Tiny he is a little hisser, but when he tried to smackey paw me, mom stuck a feather toy in his face, so he missed. Later in the afternoon, I met with Boo and she also likes the sound of her own hiss. Dad said it cannot be the scent of me cause after three weeks here in my new home I must smell just like the smells the house, so I just smell like home. I have scent marked some of their blankets and things, and they all visited my old room. The true test mom and dad think is when I meet with Little Boy he is pretty protective of his home and family. Me well I am just happy to be in a furever home! Daddy has loved me from day one and he said I am not going anywhere else, my home is here.Tonight after dinner, I ran skipped jumped, and bunny kicked the nanner and I feel like a kitten, just weeks ago I was wondering if I would get atleast one meal each day (without getting beat for it) and even just a sip of water, I fought daily for my life and my right to food and drink. Today my food bowl still stays full and there is no fight for it, it is all mine, and moma is all over it if it looks like I might get hurt by a resident cat, but of course she knows that I could not have survived on the streets for years if I did not know how to take care of my self, she just wants us to all get along well for years to come, so we are taking it real slow each day. Yea my eye still waters a lot but is not red and my nose is still stuffy, my breathing is noisy, but no mucus is coming out. Thank you my catster friends for caring, loving and encouraging me all along the way.
Moma Ivey out.
This is great news! Now you and the other kitties just need to establish a new pecking order... in this house, Moe Moe is always the top, no matter what else shows up! Once you kitties have established the pecking order, it should be smooth sailing, just don't panic about the pecking order thing, just one of those things that has to happen!
'On Coming In From The Cold'
One looks, one wonders and starts at the sound of the drip drip drip...wondering if the rain will leak down on the back of your neck....and then you realize...it is just the sound of the coffeemaker on the counter, the smell of the fragrant beans from a far away place scenting the air...and you are dry.
and the hum in the air that keeps the heat at bay, even as the bright sun shines on the patch of carpet...you don't have to find the shade unless you want to, you can stretch and yawn and rest your head back against the soft of the carpet or the hardness of the cool floor...and you are safe and cool.
and when you feel hunger, the kind being that has become a part of the life you now have, and cherish, comes into the room and you run over to her...or him...and you are spoken softly to, as the food dishes are placed out, and the food, plentiful, good tasting, is spooned out and placed before 'Your Place'. And the others of the Clowder, those you like those you aren't sure of....they have their places. But you needn't fight them for food...or for the clean, cool water that flows from the fountain or is splashed into water bowls for drinking...clean, always there.
And as you explore, and find your spirts lifing, perhaps you find that funny little sock or oddly shaped package on the floor that is just cat sized, and you roll and play, smelling the good catnip.
Then, stretching again, your mind is at peace, your Self at Rest, and The Goodness of Cat rolls out and blesses this space.
You are Home.
Welcome Home Ivey. Welcome to Our World. Welcome 'coming in from the Cold.'
With Love from Orange Ruffy and the Kew Gardens Cats
Thanks my friends, MoeMoe you hold on to your top cat spot very well. I hope we can establish our order without any blood shed...moma is trying not to be too concerned.
Oh dear Orange Ruffy you write so furry beautifully, moma eyes watered as she read what you wrote and relived again (just as she did when she wrote this diar for me)what I must have gone through. Dad told mom this morning that when I first woke up and started walking my back legs failed me a couple of times before I could get moving. The doc. said I ma nly 3-4 yrs old but it must be the old injury to my hip or back. Thanks again to you and Simone for encouraging words.
Orange Ruffy, you are so right. That is just what it feels like to live inside and to finally be safe after having been outside and scared. I'm so happy we are all insides and safes. Moma Ivey, we are so sorry that you have those old injuries you'll have to spend your life with. We hope it won't hold you back too much in your new life. We've all got our little baggage from the streets, but our peoples love us so much that we get by! I hopes you can gets by just greats with your new family! Being inside and loved is the bestest!
