Arrival Story:
Amber was adopted from TCRAS (Teller County Regional Animal Shelter) in Divide, Colorado in 2010. She was temporarily returned to TCRAS because of instabiity in my marriage, leading to seperation and divorce. Later I found her at a Petco Store nearby, and I re--adopted her, since I finally had a stable roof over my head. Ashira, my other cat who recently passed, was very glad to see Amber again, and so was I! Ashira, my other cat, went to the Rainbow Bridge yesterday, and so now Amber is my only cat. I will think about possible adoption again later. We'll see how Amber does being an only cat.

The birthdate is not correct since I don't have a birthday on her. But the year should be approximately correct.

Life is Good and Different Now

Life has been pretty good lately and a whole lot different than it was. I have to get used to Mom working more. This week she worked a couple of times - next week she is almost scheduled solid except Tuesday when she has an appointment to go to.

So what do I do while Mom is teaching school all day? Hmmm - anything I want! hehe :)

Mom has no idea of all the mischief I'm into all day long!

But when she comes home, there I am at the door, saying hello to her (which Mom says I literally do since I "talk" - sort of a fun thing I do that Mom likes). :)

It gets sort of lonely with Mom working a lot but on days off, when she does have them, she plays and snuggles with me and we make up for it!

Anyway, she says she's earning the "cat food money" - so how can I argue with that??


Mom is getting work soon

Mom has been really worried because she is a Substitute Teacher and she couldn't find a 3 month temp job or tutoring in the summer. She has never been hired for summer school either and thinks she needs to make the right connections. She was going to try harder to do that this year.

But anyway, that was 3 months of no work for Mom and finances are pretty low right now.

School started this week, and Mom knows she doesn't have much patience, but she doesn't because she must support herself and me, and nobody will help her do that.

So, when school started and she wasn't getting any calls for work assignments, she was ok at first and then began to worry.

So this morning Mom called her supervisor. She said there were not any Subbing assignments yet but her supervisor thought it would pick up by Friday or next week.

Mom takes Friday off because she does a volunteer job that is important to her that day.

But by next week, Mom hopes to have some work. It made her feel some relief to have reassurance from her supervisor, but she hopes work will really come!

For now, my job is to snuggle up beside her and love her so she will feel better. I know she worries about affording my care and food too. But Mom has always loved her kitties and her fur babies eat before she does.

We will be ok I think. Mom needs rest today - too many worries recently. I'll rest with her. Mom says "You're so cute!" :)


My new kitty tee pee

Well hello out there Catster cats!
Its another rainy, stormy day here in Colorado.

But I sure made Mom happy today. She bought me this kitty teepee from the pet store hoping to give me a little fun place to hide out.

I sniffed it the first few days and would put my head inside, but that was about it.

Today, I went in, laid down and really liked it!
Then Mom came over and took a picture which you can see new on my page now (second one down from the profile photo).

So when she took the picture, I ran away (out of there!).
But I'll go back later....I really did like it.

Well, all you Catster cats out there take it easy today, chase plenty of mousies, and take long, luxurious cat naps and for those in states where its raining and flooding like here - keep your fur dry!
