Arrival Story:
How I became guardian of Lefty and her litter sister Righty is told in her diary.

Lefty and Righty may be part Siamese as Uno is. They have the Siamese type of body build but they don't have the typical strong Siamese personality or the typical Siamese loud mouth vocalizations. I suspect the vision in Lefty's right eye is minimal and that she's almost blind.

Lives Remaining:
8 of 9

The Last Forum I Posted In:
Long fur

Lefty is blind in her left eye and has only partial vision in her right eye.

Waking Up

The stillness is broken by a rustling sound, first slight, then more emphatic. I yawn and stretch myself in my favorite sleeping spot on Mom's pillow right behind her head, a spot which I often have to share with Lily. It's almost time for us to go into action!

The rustling sound escalates as Mom wakes up and moves around in our bed, yes OUR bed. We kitties consider the bed as belonging to us too. After all we spend more time on it than Mom does!

I stand up and go rub my head against Mom's hand to tell her "Good morning Mom." Mom obligingly strokes the top of my head and scratches my neck. Uno gets up from her sleeping spot on Mom's chest and rubs Mom's chin, wanting Mom to pet her too. Gabe stands up from his sleeping spot on Mom's lap and headbutts her. Buddha and the others on the bed are more polite. Buddha gently taps Mom's arm with his paw, wanting his share of the morning petting greetings. Righty, Velcro, Buttons, Lily, and the other adults on the bed all wait their turn to greet Mom. The kittens, still being young and energetic, get up and run off to go to the litter pans first. After they relieve themselves, they will come back to greet Mom unless they get sidetracked into running and playing instead.

Mom talks to us and gives all of us who greet her, some petting and scratching. She says the best way in the world to wake up is with the sound of happy purring and the warmth of loving kitties greeting her.


My Refuge

As you may have heard, our house has been invaded by three little monsters called kittens. It seems like they are either in perpetual motion or else they're all piled up asleep on the highest shelf of the biggest cat tree. They only seem to have one speed when they're awake, lightning fast. They have very little respect for most of us grownup cats, except for Buddha who somehow charms them into being nice to him and Aurora their mother.

Until recently, the little monsters were either caged or else they were only allowed to play in the front room. Then Carina had to go and open the door to the front room and let the monsters out to run the entire house! Since they weren't doing anything unsafe and they were going to the litter ok, Mom followed Carina's lead and let the kittens continue having the run of the house. Most of us cats aren't too pleased with this situation, me included. Carina you should NEVER have opened that door!

Since Mom won't do anything about the three little terrorists, I found my own solution to the problem. I found myself a place where I can nap, listen to TV, and enjoy peace and quiet. The kittens won't dare come up here!

"Where is my refuge?" you may ask.

It's on top of Destiny's crate! Most of the time, Destiny likes to stay in her crate indulging in her favorite pasttime-gnawing on her chew toys. And I just now realized...by keeping the kittens away from my refuge, that dog is actually useful for something!


Holding Hands

One thing cats do that is really sweet is when they hold hands with you. Just now I'm sitting at my laptop trying to catch up on pawmails between DCs. Lefty is lying on the pillow behind me catnapping. While waiting on my internet connection to come back, I reached back to pet Lefty. She promptly put her forepaw into my hand and pressed against it, doing her kitty best to hold hands with me. When I moved my hand a little bit away, she reached out, grabbed it, and put her paw in it again.

Kitties holding hands with humans is something I've not yet seen anybody mention.

How many of you have kitties who like to hold hands with you?
