Arrival Story:
I decided to volunteer for a small rescue. When I went for training I spotted an old grey cat, who looked very skinny and kept looking at me. I felt an immediate connection with him. I figured it was because he looks very similar to Angel Dexter, whom I lost almost a year ago. Each day I volunteered, I couldn't wait to see him, and he was eagerly awaiting my visit. After 3 weeks I offered to foster/adopt him. After I got him home I realized he was in worse shape than I thought. His coat was thin with areas of hair loss, his hocks and paw pads were bloody from being chewed on. He was very underweight for his large frame and I often heard him breathing. I officially adopted him, made a vet appointment, and we started our journey to recovery.

Thanks Catster, for choosing me today! And thanks for the gifties and well wishes furiends!

Me and Pouncey went to the vet yesterday. I'm still having trouble eating and sometimes spit out my food. My vet said it will take awhile for my sutures to dissolve and that new bone will have to grow in my jaw. Two of the 4 teeth pulled were my lower canines, and they were so loose she pulled them out with her fingers. I'm still kinda itchy and lick myself a lot, but not as bad as I used to.

Sisfur Pouncey had her lip looked at. She was all excited because they gave her some nip to play in and she ate it. The vet rolled her hands in nip before she tried to touch her, cause Pouncey tries to bite the vet. She still has a 1cm lump, but we're just going to watch it for now, because it's not bothering her at all.

Is it Spring yet? It sure doesn't feel like it. We'll I'm off for a nap and I'll have to keep dreaming about it fur now.

Hugs & Purrs,


I'm Glad this is All Behind Me!

Well I've had a rough couple of weeks. I was still getting settled in and all of a sudden there were new humans in the house. My grandpa went to the Bridge last week and dad's son and 5 year old grandson stayed with us for a whole week. I was scared and mom was doing everything she could to protect me. She said the little human was actually quite well behaved, as he has 3 kitties at his house and is taught to respect us. Kingsley and Paisley were very excited to have a little human waving toys around and playing nonstop.

On Tuesday mom had the flu so dad took me to the vet. I had 4 teeth pulled! Yikes - my mouth feels funny and I'm still taking pain meds. Then I got sick and vomited for a day. I'm starting to feel better now - also taking some prednisolone and Zyrtec for the itchies and Dasuquin for my other aches. We're working on my diet in hopes of it helping me feel more comfortable.

The other furblings are getting excited about the warm weather and checking out the kitty enclosure and fenced yard. I'm very content staying inside. I'm glad I never gave up hope; and my new mommy just luvs me so much!

I know I don't have very many furiends, but I wish the best for anyone stopping by to visit me, you are very spawcial:)

Hugs and Purrs,

I was worried this day would never get here. I've been waiting at a shelter for almost a year. A lot of the kitties I lived with were feral. I am so happy with my new furmily. Mom says she never had a kitty "fit in" so quickly. I stayed in a room behind a screen door for only one night, then got full run of the house. I like all of my new furblings, especially my sisfur Pouncey. I even get wet food here, there's always water to drink, and lots of litter boxes that are clean. And best of all I get lots of attention. I didn't appreciate getting a bath, but mom said it would help my skin and make me smell prettier.

I don't like taking medicine, but I hope it will help me feel better. I'm very itchy and my mouth hurts. Next week I'm getting my first dental, and some of my loose teeth (what's left of them) will be taken out.

I'm so happy to be a member of Catster and would love to by your furiend:)
