Buddha, The Cat Who Lives Up To His Name


The Scary Black Halloween Cat

It's almost Halloween, the day when black cats like me get a chance to be in the spotlight. I like to put on my best grumpy panther look and take advantage of my height (I'm a rather tall cat) and make myself look as scary as possible so I can have fun watching people's reactions. Mom has a hard time keeping from laughing whenever someone asks her if I'm as mean and scary as I look. Shhhh! Don't blow my cover. Let me enjoy pretending to be a big mean fierce scary black panther cat for Halloween! Its the one day of the year when my acting skills get noticed!

 

Rescue Kittens Update

So far, after Micah's shocking sudden departure to the Rainbow Bridge on 9-21-13, the three remaining rescue kittens are growing and thriving. With a little input from Russ and Christine, they also have names now.

The little red and white boy is named Dovakin, nicknamed Dova, a name which is supposed to mean "dragon born" and comes from the game Skyrim.

The little white with black boy was named "Moo" by Christine because of the kitten's markings resemblance to those of a Holstein dairy cow. Christine likes cows, hence the name Moo. When Russ and Christine get a place of their own, Moo will go to live with them.

The little spotted tabby and white kitten who bears a strong resemblance to little Micah, is named Jag for Jaguar because his spots appear rosetted like those of a wild cat species. He also has earned the nickname Scamp because whenever the door to the kitten cage is opened, he quickly scampers through it and runs to the bedroom!

Every day the kittens each get one on one human handling, play, and socialization time away from their mother and the other kittens. Every time, Buddha comes and "supervises" the socialization, helping, encouraging, and mothering the kittens and sometimes helping me by keeping a kitten from running out of reach under the bed!

 

The Rescue Kittens/Micah R.I.P.9-21-13

As told in Little Skittles diary, on Sept 14, 2013, I was called upon to rescue and save the lives of two adult cats and four kittens. On 9-19 I took some pictures of the kittens.

Buddha is an exceptional cat. He has always loved to wash other cats and he has always loved to act as a surrogate mother to orphaned or rescued kittens. In every way he lives up to his name. Thus, as is ever his way, when he saw me carrying kittens to the bed to photograph them, he came running and immediately started sniffing them, then washing them, then playing with the first and second rescue kitten to be photographed.

Interestingly in light of what was to come a few days later, he was especially attentive to the third rescue kitten. Did he sense something then? Did he somehow know what was to come?

This kitten, who was posthumously named Micah, was the smallest of the litter. He was also the least active and the most reclusive of the litter. He spent much more time laying around while his littermates romped and played. However except for being the smallest, he seemed totally healthy and in excellent condition.

It came as a shock to me when I found Micah dead yesterday 9-21-13. There was no clue as to what took him to the Bridge at such a tender young age. (The most likely possibility is a heart defect or other internal defect). He lay stretched out in his favorite spot, his little forepaws curled under him in a sleep pose. It appeared that he peacefully crossed the Rainbow Bridge as he slept.

I hadn't named the kittens yet because I hadn't yet gotten to really know their individual personalities. However, due to his sudden crossing of the Bridge, I named the smallest kitten Micah-meaning Gift from God. As his spirit soars on the other side of the Bridge, Micah's earthly shell lies in a corner of the catnip garden.

Hopefully the three remaining kittens will continue to thrive and grow up to be the beautiful graceful cats they are destined to be.
