Arrival Story:
I went to adopt Gyselle from the rescue organization I had previously adopted Farrah & Moose from, & Carina & Kitty Ga-Ga, two antisocial cats considered unadoptable & who don't usually go up to people both chose me & made it clear they wanted to come home with me. Kitty Ga-Ga lay right beside me in the chair I was sitting in & Carina got in my lap & stayed there, to the amazement of the shelter personnel. After these two cats went to such lengths of effort to make their choice known, there was no way I could disappoint them so I adopted both of them along with Gyselle and took all three home with me.

Bio:
Carina, as well as Gyselle and Kitty Ga-Ga, is adjusting much faster than I ever expected and is revealing more and more of her personality. She certainly is a talker, has a comment about everything. I'll say to her, "Tell me all about it," and she will vocalize as if she's trying to talk! Carina's still too insecure to reveal what her curiosity level really is. She's friendly with me but not particularly friendly with other people, this too may change as she becomes more secure. Her friendliness and curiosity levels are only temporary and don't yet reflect her true personality.

Lives Remaining:
9 of 9

The Last Forum I Posted In:
Rescued kitty is a BITER

Carina's Siamese blood comes out roaring in her voice. She has all the typical Siamese vocal abilities & is quite the little talker! She also has a Siamese temper and gets jealous if there's another cat by me when she decides she wants my attention!

Thank you to all my friends for your caring, thoughtfulness, generosity, and for your pics, rosettes, gifts, etc. I appreciate all you do for me & our kitty family.

Thank You Catster & Friends!

Thank you Catster, thank you Diary Girl (or Boy,whichever it may be) for my DDP. Thank you also to everyone who gave me rosettes and treats. Thank you Jameson, for the beautiful picture you made for me.

My DDP was made even sweeter because Uno is jealous of me because I got a DDP and her recent diary entries got no extra attention at all. She has even been giving me dirty looks and smacking at me when I pass her in the hallway.

I told Uno that she gets plenty of attention already and that she probably will get plenty more attention in her lifetime. She said she wants to be a celebrity and I told her that she'll never have a chance at fame as long as she keeps overgrooming herself. Mom told Uno she won't take a picture of her until she stops overgrooming herself. The upper half of Uno's coat is nice, beautiful, shiny...but the lower half of her body's coat is sparse because of something the vet calls psychogenic alopecia caused by overgrooming and the stress of all that's happened here in the last 3 months. Uno is only happy when she's able to be on or beside Mom all the time. She also gets upset when there's anyone else here except Mom and for the past 3 months, Russ has had to be here a lot to help Mom.

Thanks again everyone, and Uno...don't worry so much! Everything's okay.

 

A Year Already!

Time sure flies by when you're happy. It's hard to believe that Kitty Gaga, Gyselle, and I have been here in our forever home for a year already! We've also learned a lot here. For example I who never tolerated another cat getting near me, have learned to tolerate Uno resting her butt against mine. What can I say, it's the price I sometimes have to pay to sleep on Mom. I like to try to sleep on Mom's shoulder with my head against her chin and my forepaws wrapped around her neck but the problem is, Uno likes to lay on Mom's chest, Lefty and Lily lay behind Mom on the pillow, and there's no place else for my rear end to go except against another kitty. Since I prefer to lay my entire body on Mom, I elected to learn to tolerate Uno resting her rear against mine. Just as long as she doesn't look me in the eye, I'm fine. If another cat looks me in the eye, I usually still get scared, hiss, and run off. However, I always come back and Mom says this shows I'm not as scared of the other cats as I used to be.

In the rest of the house, I have an understanding with all the other cats similar to the understanding Hallie had with the other cats before she went to the Bridge. As long as the other cats give me a little space and don't look me in the eye, I co-exist peacefully with them. If I'm coming down the hallway, the others step aside for me just as they used to do for Hallie. But if I try to think of myself as a queen, Mom reminds me that my behavior comes from fear, not confidence. She's right. Maybe this next year I'll work on developing more confidence!

Like Pandora's Box, once I made the mistake of opening the door to the front room that day and let the trio of little tornadoes loose, there was no putting them back. However, I had a good reason for opening the door that day. Our food is in that room and I was hungry. Being a cat, even when I'm well fed and contented I still like to go back and nibble on food just as you humans like to eat snacks when you're not really hungry. Besides, if you just hiss forcefully at the kittens and follow your hiss up by a good swat, even if all your swat lands on is air, it will intimidate the kittens enough that they will back down and leave you alone at least for a little while. So Lefty, while I agree I shouldn't have opened the door that day, I had good reason to do so and if the kittens pester you just hiss at them and give them a good swat. That will get you at least five seconds of peace!
