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.

Today is a furry special day as I celebrate my birthday. This is my second birthday in my furever, loving home.

I've been kind of quiet and sleeping a lot. Mom wishes I would eat more. I like to see what else she might put in front of me if I give her that look :) I'm lucky that I don't have to take any medicine right now. My cough has disappeared after being treated with Revolution for 3 months in a row. I'm still itchy, but not like I used to be.

I ventured outside for a few minutes today, but asked mom to bring me back in. I'm resting on my bed on the pool table, and mom just heard me crunching on a snack she left out for me. When most of the kitties are out in the yard, I get extra treats.

I hope you are enjoying the summer and are doing well. Mom tried to load pictures of me, but we just got the whirly wheel. Oh well, maybe next year.

Love & Hugs,


My First Gotcha Day!

I can't believe I've been in my furever home for a whole year already. Don't tell any of the other furs, but mom says I'm extra special because I am so good. I'm very content and love to nap, eat, nap, eat...

I get to eat on top of the pool table. I eat slower than some of my fursibs, and this way I'm not bothered by those food stealers who never think they get enough.

For the last couple months I've been sneaking in the bed at night and snuggling with my dad when he's not at work. If he comes home from work in the morning, I follow him upstairs in hopes we can take a nap together.

My health is good and I don't have to take any medicine. I'm sorta itchy sometimes, but I'm better than I've ever been, and I told mom not to put me on any special food because I won't eat it.

Life if good!

Thanks fur helping me celebrate my dear furiends!

Love & Hugs,
