Arrival Story:
(Bob) Hope was rescued from an abandoned house trailer on Oct 13, 2012. We estimate he had been there two months with almost nothing to eat except cockroaches (which were everywhere). He was just skin and bones, but very affectionate! Just loves to sit on our laps. He has become jaundiced, but we keep helping him eat and drink. He is so very sweet and we hope he is a fighter. And what a fighter he has been! After just four days, Bob began to eat for himself. By the time a week had completed, he could eat almost 1/4 of food at a feeding. Now (Dec 2) he eats like all our other kitties and has gained weight nicely. The jaundice we feared would kill him gradually cleared up. He started playing with the other kitties on November 24. Bob is finally ready for a new very carefully chosen home! We love him!

Estimate weight before abandoned: 12 pounds Wt Oct 15: 7.1 pound. Wt. Oct 19: 7.4 Oct 31: 9.1 Nov 19: 9.6 Dec 1: 10 pounds!!

Yep, the new kid gets to stay. She is a little sweetheart. We play sometimes and I think she is very cute. I really need to teach her things like waiting till the peeplz are not around before jumping on the table, but Ziva will get the hang of it. Here is her link.


Bob the Hero Kitty

Well, Bob's adoption family did not turn out and now we very happy it did not. April 1 the ancient grandmom suddenly got very ill, as ancient ones are prone to do. When she took to her bed, so did Bob. He stayed with her 24 hours a day, leaving just to eat and pee, until she crossed the bridge on the evening of April 3. Mom was there most of the time, too. And even when Mom and the nurse were changing the bed or caring for grandmom, they could not get Bob to leave her side. After she crossed over, he still would not leave her and would fight anyone trying to get close. At last, when the funeral people came, mom had to lock him in Stephanie's room. He was such a hero to grandmom! He is a little sad right now, keeps going back to grandmom's room looking for her, but he is getting lots of love and attention from the family. This kitty will never be adoptable. He is home forever.


Adoption? Maybe

Well, possible family came to see me this evening. They were nice, but I was afraid and kind of smackety pawed them. I was not impressed at all. Mom tried to get me to be nice, but I just walked away. I know she was disappointed that I did not show my usual charming and laid back personaltiy. Well, they may be back. They told mom they understood I had been through a lot of trauma and I don't like new people are strange things. So, we shall see.
