Arrival Story:
My first cat, Toes, needed a housemate once we moved out of the shared house she grew up in. I spent nearly a year 'interviewing' adult kitties to rescue who might be a good housemate for her. I found Marbles a few months after she finished weaning the kittens she had while she had after she was caught as a stray by the local animal control. When her time was nearly up AC called MEOW in Mercer Island (now Kirkland) since she is a lovely, goofy, gorgeous kitty and the knew she was adoptable.

Marbles and I lost our kitty friend Toes at the end of September 2010 to chronic renal failure. I still miss her and am so glad I still have Miss Marbles. Miss Marbles has developed arthritis in her spine and hips. In Nov 2013 after an unexpected v-e-t visit she was diagnosed with a primary adenoma in the lower lobe of a lung. The mass is as large as an adult human's thumbprint. All this on top of increased indications of arthritis progression on the x-rays. Sigh... After a 7-month era of intensive loving, increasingly challenging pain management I had to help Marbles cross the Bridge. She is missed.

Forums Motto:
Anyone know where my marbles are?

Seeking a new feline...meeting a spokes-kitty

I loved my girls (Toes and Marbles) which is why I adopted them of course.
After Marbles passed last July, I have 'interviewed' a number of mature bonded pairs, a couple of individual cats and have found one who found his way back into a home after a bit on the streets.

A friend of mine helped him out and she cannot keep him. I am going to meet him and see if we work out. I hope it does.

I also get to meet a handsome gray-tuxed spokes-kitty while I am in town....quite a holiday gift for BOTH of us!


Farewell to my Marbles....

After an incredibly loving, all too short 15 years together, Marbles crossed the Rainbow Bridge on July 16, 2014.

She had been diagnosed last November with a lung tumor, arthritis and kidney I made sure she had Quality time. Love, play, great food and as pain free as could be managed.

She was a well-loved fluffy friend with a heart of gold and a craving for the 'nip. She was a beautiful kitty, loving and very goofy too!

I fulfilled that uncomfortable final promise I make to each of my pets. When their life is no longer of good quality and (hopefully) without crisis causing them undue stress I will honor their life.

Marbles is at Peace, romping without pain and catching up with all the dogs and cats I have loved over the years.

When I got home from the vet's office my condo felt emptier than ever. Amazing how 'big' those feline personalities can be.

Eventually I will honor her memory by rescuing a bonded pair of cats, but I need to heal a bit first.


Lovely gifties from friends and an update

I knows Ebony sent me a Big Hug and a Cutie giftie, but I gotz a couple others and I can't figure out how to find out who sent them.

I love them, hugs make me feel cozy and that is extra special thing since I have a bit of trouble feeling warm enough any more. I love snuggles and hugs WAY more than I used to and it makes Mom happy. Tho the reason I love them more does not.

Mom gotz my medicine in TUNA flavor this month and I like it lots better than the other stuff. Tho I still purrtend to not want it and make her play chase! HEE!

But I have a lot of good days so far, we focus on that.
