Here I am two years old now. My life has changed so much in the past two months! It's hard to believe now that I've been here only two months now. Two months ago I was a tired young mother busily raising four sharp clawed little kittens while at the same time we had no future. Our owner was all set to call animal control first thing Monday morning to come euthanize me, my kittens, and Classy because she couldn't take us to the rental house she was moving to and she couldn't find anybody else who was willing to take us. This was Saturday September 14. We thought we were doomed. We kitties were helpless, there was nothing we could do about our fate.
That was the day our prayers were answered and our lives changed forever as we escaped certain death. Who would have ever thought that somebody coming to give two SNAKES a home would take us too? The snakes came with their own terrariums etc, and there were only two of them. There were six of us and all we came with was a cracked litter pan and a load of fleas!
I was crushed when little Micah died in his sleep but thankful that at least he got to live a week in our new forever home instead of having his little life snuffed out by a needle for human convenience.
I was worried when our new Mom decreed that Classy and I (and Lucy Liu who was already here) were all going to go be spayed. I have to admit that Mom keeps her promises. She promised Classy when Classy aborted two fetuses, that Classy would never have to go through that ever again and she kept her promise to Classy. Classy and I were both scared when we had to go for our spay surgeries. Lucy Liu wasn't scared at all though. She said she had had so many car rides to see vets that she was used to it. Everything went well for our spays and we healed just fine just like Mom said we'd do.
Lately I have had to have antibiotics because of having a puncture wound in my neck from a single tooth, that got infected and started to abscess. Now the abscess has totally receded and the wound itself is almost healed and I only have to have a couple days more antibiotics to make sure the infection doesn't try to come back. The puncture wound was my fault really. I let myself get too nervous of some of the other cats and when in my fear, I lashed out first, I got bit in return. Mom said it's the first time in years she's had a cat get bit by one of the other cats. The last time was many years ago when a neutered male decided to try to breed a spayed female and got bit on the ear for his unwanted efforts.
So here I am two years old now. My kittens are growing up very quickly. They don't pay me much attention at all anymore, they're too busy roughhousing with each other. I'm spayed and have regained condition (when I first came here I was skinny from raising the kittens). We only see a few diehard fleas now and then. And its so nice to live indoors where its safe and comfortable and where there's always plenty to eat.
I'm two years old but in the last two months I feel like I've been through two lifetimes of changes!

Glad you had a happy birthday!
Your furst mom had those snakes fur a good reason, though you didn't realize it at that time, MOL!
Providence is so interesting to see it in action like that.
We are so furry happy that you were gotted by your second mom, and now you are living the life of luxury as befits any kitty...or should anyways!
We sure hope you get to have a long happy life, filled with so much goodness and love that those furst horrid memories will be but a hazy and buried fragment, stowed away in the recesses of your memory.
Purrs from our staycation viewing pawlace.
