Arrival Story:
I was caught as a feral cat in Loxahatchee, FL, and taken to Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League in West Palm Beach to be neutered, vaccinated, ear tipped and released in June 2012. Early in November 2012, I showed up outside my new furever home in Royal Palm Beach, where I was quickly spotted by Aggie and Maggie. They immediately notified my new human mom who ran to the window to see what my two sisters were looking at. Well, she froze and got really scared because she thought I was Purrcilla Softpaws, that she had somehow escaped (never mind that Purrcilla was in the same room human mom was in). Human mom called out to my new human dad who also ran to the window and, upon seeing my long tail, informed human mom that I was NOT Purrcilla (at that point human mom began breathing again, turned around and saw Purrcilla sitting a few feet away from her). Human mom grabbed some noms and fed me and continued to do so for a few days. She noticed that I stayed close to the patio door and even saw me inside the winter shelter she and human dad put together for that bully cat they feed, Vagabond O.C., so she decided to prop the patio door open one afternoon and I went inside, inspected everything in the patio and then went out again. The next day human mom did the same thing and this time I spent the night in the patio and cried to go out the next morning so human mom opened the patio door and I ran out. The next day, Thanksgiving Day eve, I decided to spend the night again and human mom and human dad decided I was a keeper, so they didn't let me out the next morning. I spent Thanksgiving Day in the patio and human mom spent a lot of time playing with me and talking to me. I also got to see my new fur family through the sliding glass door and that was fun. Then yesterday morning, 11/23/12, human mom came out to the patio early in the morning and I finally allowed her to pet me and boy, that felt soooo good!!! I started rubbing against her and she petted my head and my rump - it was PAWSOME!!! Then she brought a little container full of Tiki Cat Sardines and put in the back of the carrier and urged me to go inside - which I did - and "BAM" she closed the door!! Oh, I didn't like that and I protested loudly, but even though I was upset, I did eat the sardines. Then human dad took the carrier and put it in human mom's car and she drove me to the V*E*T so I could be checked out, vaccinated and bathed. I got a clean bill of health except for having parasites, which was expected since I had lots of fleas and had lived outdoors for my entire life!!! So human mom and dad picked me up from the V*E*T today and brought me to my furever home and they put me in human dad's office where I have my own litter box, bowl of water, bed and toys. I already love my human pawrents, I have licked their toes and fingers and given them love nibbles and they have shown me love like I've never known before!!! I just know I'm going to have a great life.

People in a Facebook group are hard at work trying to put together a new website for us similar to what we have now but for all cats & dogs together.

Please stay in touch with us so we can keep you updated - use this email mommy has set up:

Let's keep the community together - WE are the community and Say Media cannot destroy us.

Be strong - we'll get through this together. If you want to save your pages and don't know how, join the group DOGSTER AND CATSTER ALL PAWS BULLETIN.

Dear friends,

Please send more purrs & prayers my way, mom found a lump on my back and the pawrents are taking me to the V*E*T this afternoon at 5PM.

My pawrents are very worried but I'm not, I believe it's just a cyst or something benign. I want to have many, MANY more years with my forever family, they love me so much and it sure feels good to be loved.

Love you all!
Stryder - a former feral kitty now living the good life in my forever home.


I'm at the V*E*T's and I need your purrs, please.

I started going to the litter box constantly this morning and leaving teeny pee balls. Mom dropped me off at the vet's and will wait for Dr. Wood to call with an assessment of what's going on in my kitty body.

Mom & dad have been giving me the marshmallow root extract twice a day, mom squirts fish oil in my wet food and gives me Enisyl-f oral paste every day (lysine). I do not not NOT like the diet wet food, I'd rather go hungry that eat that junk. I do eat the diet dry food which makes me drink a lot of water.

Mom wants a long term solution to my problem even if means surgery. This is the 4th time I have pee problems and it is never an infection, they always say it's stress but I am not stressed, so mom thinks it's something genetic with me or just the fact that I'm a cat and we're notorious for having pee problems.

Please send some prayers and purrs my way, mom is very stressed again, she was supposed to go for blood work this morning and had to cancel so she could drop me off at the V*E*T's.

Purrs & luvs to all,
