Happy 3rd Got’cha Day Ivy Joy!!
I tried to post your pretty Got'cha Day Photo which Auntie Eileen made you, but the Catster Fleas will not let me....so grateful Catster is working on getting rid of all those so we can get our community up and running again.
Sweet Sweet, Ivy Joy....Can you believe it has already been three years since you rescued us??
Wow….how time flies. I remember reading about you on Larry Powell’s website and wondering if you were ever going to find that special home you needed in order to thrive…well, you did…a forever home with us. Not only have you thrived and grown into a beautiful princess cat, but we have grown from learning about your special needs and from your love. Aren't we blessed??!!!
It has been three years full of discovery and patience to help you become the beautiful soul you are…You had such a rough start in life and all we want is for you to find health, peace and happiness. We believe you have found peace and happiness and I promise we will work on the health issues until they are either resolved or totally manageable.
Thank you for bringing so much joy into our home again, especially with the loss of our other angels. Our home was so empty and our hearts so sad….you have given us an abundance of love (in your own special way).
I admire you and am continually amazed at your growth and development….from a scared little feral kitten with a sensory disorder to a well spirited cat…amazing what love can do. You are so very special.
Thank you for rescuing us on August 27, 2011….we are forever grateful you have come into our lives and hearts.
Our hearts are connected by paws.
Love you sweet Princess Ivy Joy,
Mommy, Daddy, Sissy Angel, Ck Angel, Jazzi Angel. Luna Rose, and Our newest member of the family, Honey Bun

Merry Christmas and Happy-Healthy New Year!!!
What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace."
We love you all and thank you from the very depths of our hearts for the gifts of frienship...Our hearts are forever connected by paws.
Peace, Love and Light,
Ivy Joy and family

I honor and celebrate you today, even more so than I already do! You have taught me so much....I am grateful we rescued each other. I am posting Sissy's tribute to you as it says it all....
Wanted to share Sissy's Tribute to me...she wrote in her diary!
I want you to know you are my hero. I know 1-28-2013 is a bittersweet day for you....even more so, without us here with you.I know how much you miss us..we miss you, too. I am ever so grateful you have Ivy Joy and Luna Rose to share your heart with...I always told you to keep loving others as it is what you do...I am always watching over you....All of us are...CheyAnne, Sugar, Jazzi, CK, Blackie, Skeeter, Beamer, all your angles and angel friends. You are surrounded by angels every minute of ever day....you always said, "my angels were fur" and you are right, mommy, we do!
I know you never thought you would be getting more injections on the 28th....23 years after your accident.....just keep on keepin on, mommy!
Mommy, you always told me it iwas important to reflect one's journey and remember what makes you who you are today. I am doing that for you....You are an amazing lady and I admire you more than you know. I can't help but have mixed feelings either. We are all so happy you are with us, and yet so sad because of your continual pain and daily struggles. It's hard for me to imagine it has been 23 years since the careless drunk driver hit you and changed your life forever. The person you were, "died", and when you came back to us, we were so thankful.
This is like another birthday, mommy!!! I love birthdays!!! We are partying at the Bridge today!!! We have to celebrate our journeys and challenges....right, that's you taught me and I am reminding you to honor your journey and be proud of what you have accomplished.
I know as you face your continual health decline, you get scared. I know one day your body will fail you and you will not be able to walk again. Your future is so uncertain....but I believe you are never alone as you have helped so many with failing bodies, including me....there will be others to care for you and appreciate your mind and spirit.
We admire you tenacity and strength. I know I was not a part of your life then....and neither was my daddy, but if things would have been different, our paths may never have crossed. I am so thankful to have you for my mommy and so proud of all you do and who you are despite what you go through daily.
We know this day makes you sad, and yet grateful to be alive. It is a day of total reflection. That's okay. It is a bittersweet day and you are entitled to have these feelings..................if we could make you better we would, but want you to know, we think you are perfect just as you are....and despite what happens, we will always be by your side watching over you from above.
An extra special thank you to my angel sister Jazzi and my sisters in spirit at the bridge, CheyAnne and Sugar, who laid in your hospital bed and stayed by your side and helped you walk again. They watched you endure pain and stuggles unimagineable to many.... I am glad I could be a part of what and who you are now..............you will always be my hero...today, I say thank you for being alive and WALKING into my life and heart forever!!! Thank you for taking care of me as my body failed and helping me find peace at the Bridge…thank you for letting me be and loving me for who I am!!!
May you find your own strength and courage to face life's obstacles and appreciate and celebrate the rewards.
Celebrating and honoring you, mommy.
