Quick Bio:
-mixed breed-cat rescue

April 24th 2002


Pounce likes to chase (and sometimes catch) chipmunks and birds in our fenced yard. She especially likes her human dad, and doesn't like it when he goes to work.

Not getting all the food she wants, winter, going to the vet.

Favorite Toy:
Glitter balls and catnip filled toys she can carry in her mouth.

Favorite Nap Spot:
In her bed in the front window where she can keep an eye on the squirrels.

Favorite Food:
Stella & Chewy's frozen or freeze-dried food, any and all varieties

Hunting, biting peoples' hands if they touch her when she's not in the mood, chasing Benson around, and licking bowls spotless.


Arrival Story:
I adopted Pounce from a local rescue called Angel's Wish. She had been residing at a vet clinic, and was bossing all the other cats around.

According to Pounce's vet records, she used to weigh 29 lbs. She weighed 19 lbs. when we adopted her and is now a healthy 14 lbs. She loves to eat.

Lives Remaining:
9 of 9

Forums Motto:
Will purr for petting!

Update on my Health

A few weeks ago I was urinating in the new area rugs. Mom took me to the vet and I had a urinary tract infection. I was on antibiotics and feel better. Sometimes I still would rather use the carpet instead of the litter box, so now I take a pill every day, in hopes that will keep me on track. Last week I had a dental and lucked out, I got to keep all my teeth.

I'm otherwise enjoying the summer as usual. I spend a lot of time sleeping in the chairs in the yard. I really like stretching out on mom's lounge chair. I don't hunt as much as I used to and I'm sleeping a lot more. My IBD has been under control and I'm gradually losing weight - under 13 pounds. I can't believe I used to weigh 28 pounds - yikes.

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you all the best.

Today I'm celebrating my 13th birthday, and it's going to be a pawsome one!

Last week my brofur Dixon bit my front foot, so I have been on pain meds and antibiotics, but I am doing great now. The pain meds actually helped with my arthritis and I've been playing with toys and running around again. My IBD has been under control and my weight has been stable at 13 lbs. The vets still say I should lose a couple pounds, but mom says I'm just purrfect. I've been eating my meals in the bedroom all by myself and that way I don't get any extra food.

Mom's house up the hill was supposed to be closing in two weeks, but now there's an issue with the financing. Hopefully it will still happen soon because it's a lot of work and money. We've also been emptying and renovating my grandparents' house. Wow, there was a lot of stuff in there and it's taking forever. Both of my grandmas live in a nursing home now.

We've had a lot of human losses in the last year - grandpa, mom's brother, and her neighbor friend who had kitties. Mom's brother had 3 kitties and his wife can only keep two when she moves into an apartment. So we will be fostering Zeva soon, in hopes of finding her a home through a rescue. We're not sure where we will keep the kitty as we are at cat capacity, but mom feels she needs to do this for her brother.

Enough rambling on. I'm in my favorite spot under the pool table lights and life is good!

Happy Purrs,
