Arrival Story: My neighbor knew someone who had a cat that was expecting kittens and she knows how much I miss my Lizzie, so she told my dad that she knew someone who had a cat expecting kittens and that was for sure getting one and asked if he wanted her to pick up a kitten for me depending on how many kittens the cat had. He said yes but to not tell me about it because he wanted to keep it a surprise! A few weeks later another one of my neighbors knocked on the door and asked to talk to my dad. My dad came back and told me to go downstairs to our neighbors apartment because she needs me to do a favor for her. I went downstairs and she told me to sit down on the couch with my eyes closed, arms out and my hands open. I felt her put something soft and squirmy in my hands and when I opened my eyes there was Belle looking at me with those big beautiful hazel green eyes of hers. A few minutes later she was laying on my stomach sound asleep and purring. Her new permanent residense would be the apartment right upstairs with my dad and I and I was going to be her new mom! It was love at first site!
Bio: My neighbor that picked up Belle for me also picked up her brother Rascal aka Simba for herself and her family. Belle loves to have playdates with him!
Mom, Auntie Cory and Uncle Ron and Auntie Laurie took me, Midnight, Autumn and Shiloh to the Vet to get something called spayed and neutered so us ladies can't have kittens and the dumb boys can't make us make kittens! Apparently some people refer to it as being "fixed" but that makes no sense because there was nothing wrong with me! The Vet said that I was the hardest one to do because I was to scared to come out of my kennel! I let mom know my displeasure when she picked me up tonight! Our neighbors 3 year old niece came with them to pick us up and she asked where I was to which mom replied "She'll be right out. They just went back to get her!" and then the little girl said this refering to me "Is she going to drive?!" Everyone in the clinic started laughing!
On a side note I think mom is up to something because when I came home there was all sorts of things wrapped in wrapping paper sitting on the coffee table. She is definitely up to something and I must investigate further!
Oh my goodness! I'd like to thank my cat mommy for bringing me into the world! My human mommy for putting me on Catster and loving me! I'd also like to thank Auntie Cory for giving me to mommy and being a good mommy to my brother Simba and my cousins Midnight and Autumn! Oh and I can't forget Auntie Laurie and my cousins Smokey and Shiloh either!
On March 26th we went to the Vet to make sure I was healthy enough to get Spayed on April 9th. I wouldn't come out of my cage but the Vet man said that I was good healthy weight for my age and size. I'm getting Spayed at the Wisconsin Humane Society Ozaukee Campus which is where we were for the Vet to. While we were there mommy bought me two new toys...a Pink and White mouse (She put a bell on it's tail!) and Pink duck that rattles when you shake it! Oh and the car ride there and back wasn't nowhere near as bad as mommy thought it would be because it turns out that I like car rides!
So Belle and I were visiting our downstairs neighbor yesterday and they again mentioned that I should declaw Belle. I almost BLEW MY TOP! I went on to explain to them that my I don't declaw because if I declaw my cat then I take away her defense system if she ever gets into trouble with another cat/animal/human! Not only would she not be able to defend herself. I don't know why they have their cats declawed but I do feel bad for them. One of their cats is littermates to Belle and he scratches on Belle's cardboard scratch board...and this cat is declawed. I didn't even mention that it is basicly amputation but maybe I should have. I did however do some further research on the issue and explained to my dad (who is also against declawing) what is all involved and that is the equivelent of us getting our fingers or toes cut off down to the knuckles! Now imagine having to balance and walk without your toes and having to pick up stuff without fingers. Now imagine you are a cat who just got declawed and now you have to walk, run, jump, play and use the litter box when your paws are extremely sore!
