Well, we've been going through changes around here lately. Mom finally found a doberman to rescue. She's been here for 2 weeks, and she is sleeping in my bed next to mom. At least I still get my same sleeping spot - mom's chest. That's right, I'm still Queen. I would have to draw the line if it was another cat, but I think I've trained mom enough that she knows better. Which brings me to the reason I'm here today, it's my Gotcha Day, and I remember when Mom rescued me. Originally, I had shown up fully pregnant to a kind older lady's house. She already had cats and couldn't take care of me, but she saw I needed help and let me have my kittens at her house where I could eat and nurse them. As soon as I weaned my babies, she took me to get spayed. Mom works at the clinic where I had my surgery. When the lady came to get me in the afternoon, she said she had 4 kittens that needed homes. Mom was head over heels in love with me after experiencing my sweet charm that day and asked, "Does the mom need a home, too?" The lady looked bewildered, but said yes, did she know of anyone? Mom looked a little embarrassed and said she would like to have her. "As soon as I can get the kittens homes, you can have her," she said. Mom thought about me everyday, and became discouraged that maybe she forgot. Then one day, mom got a phone call. She was bringing me to the clinic! Mom was overjoyed. When the lady gave me to mom, she had tears in her eyes. She said I was a good cat. Mom felt bad and assured her that she could keep me if she wanted to. "No," she said, "she will have a good home with you." Mom was so happy that day, can you blame her? I'm really amazing, and I bring mom mice all the time. I'm happy mom fell for me. And it is quite a wonderful day to celebrate!

Today it has been exactly 1 year since my mom found Catster. She was looking for a place to talk to other people about cats and cat health, and here we came. She got to make pages for us, write about us in diaries, and join groups with other cat lovers. After one year, this is her favorite place to come. She's feeling very "warm and fuzzy" today, and is completely moved by all the individual stories of rescues she has read on so many of my friend's pages. Mom has rescued (and lost) many sick and old doggies, and knows how much time and energy it takes to heal a soul. She recently lost Zane, the doberman, and his loss has really taken a toll on mommy. She has done some cat rescues, including myself, but we just won't allow her to bring anymore home. Lily was the latest, and is constantly taking a thumping from us girls. I admit my guilty part, but girls have a difficult time sharing their home. And I will NOT share mom. Anyhow, mom is very moved by the wonderful group of humans that come together here for us cats. She is proud to be part of this, and would like to tell everyone who has saved the life of a cat, "Thank you!" Happy Anniversary and give your kitties extra cheek scratches and head rubs. May God bless every human who has given a part of her/his Self to better the life of an Other.

Well, curl my toes and wiggle my tail! I woke up this morning, demanding my breakfast, as usual, but mommy found quite a wonderful surprise! Little old me was picked as KCK Kitty of the Month! I've never won anything so big in all my life. I was kitty of the week in January, but never expected this. Mommy was so happy for me. She had quite a difficult time last month saying goodbye to Zane as he went to Rainbow Bridge. I purred and kneaded every night, but her heart was very broken. She is still so sad, but today she was so happy for me. I sat on her lap when she did her hair this morning, and I left muddy footprints on her sweatshirt. On purpose, I'm handing out autographs now! She went to Petco and bought me some bling! Green peridot rhinestone paw prints. I was in such a good mood, I played with my tail and knocked some books over. That's right, books demolished. I'm feeling a bit like a diva... but move over, mom. I'm still dishing out purrs and kneading. I know that even with my spotlight shining, you still need me. Thank you to all my wonderful friends at KCK and Catster!!
