Arrival Story:
Toby was abandoned (January 20,2004) at the same place that Emma and Nick were. She came with a note that said her name was Toby, she was 3 years old, an indoor cat and asked that Noah's Ark help her. When she came to us she weighed about 20 pounds. She was put into the adoption unit, but after a while became very depressed and gained more weight. I had always loved Toby, I love the big cats. So I took her home (April 17, 2004) to foster, but decided within a week that she had to be mine. She was all ready three, she was large and she had an attitude (don't pick her up or put your face in hers), but she is sweet and very sociable. Other cats always seem to give her a hard time. She has lost as much weight as I can seem to get her to lose and now she is in her forever home. Toby's birthday is celebrated in February.

Bio:
My name is Toby and I am the Social Butterfly/Guest Greeter of the family. I am a stunning girl with beautiful colors. Mommy says that I am a big girl, but that is what makes me so special. I do not like to be picked up, but Mommy does it anyway because she likes the noise I make when I hiss at her. I start off in a mean almost squeal sound then I get into the hiss and then it sounds like I am choking on something, but I am not. I wish you could hear me, it is a unique sound all my own. I am very happy in my new forever home, in fact on April 17, 2007, I celebrated my 3 year anniversary from the day Mommy took me out of the unit. I love all the babies here (that is what we are too Mommy, we are more than cats); unfortunately not everyone likes me the same way. I do not get in anyone's way, I like to spend most of my time in the bathroom sink or lounging in front of the balcony doors. Trinity chases me and hits me randomly and Gloria and I have never gotten along (we were in the unit together). Mike and Samantha are probably my best friends, Mike is a big strong cat and he can wrestle with me and he helps me to groom too, he is very sweet. Lea does not seem to like me, but I think she feels that way about everyone accept Trinity and Emma (I miss you Emma). I get to run when I feel like it around here, so my weight is stable and I am feeling great. Mommy brushes our teeth (we all have are own brushes) and my doctor said I have the teeth of new kitten..I am very proud!!!!

Mom took me to the vet because I was due for my check-up and because I had another infection. It is very embarrassing because she has to use baby wipes on me and I give her a really hard time about it. But then on top of that today, she gave me my medication trimmed my nails, cleaned my ears and then picked me up. The only thing she did right was brush me. I was hissing and squealing and she shoved me into my carrier. She came to look at me, but I just growled. So we get into the car, which I actually like and then to the doctors office, there were dogs everywhere and they were very loud and scary. While we were waiting, Grandma showed up with Tigger because he was sick again too. Since we are family and both see Dr Smith we decided to just use one exam room. I got out to get weighed and of course was still a little ticked off so I was hissing all over the place, I am at 16.4 lbs. Tigger was gentle and quiet, he is so good it is disgusting.

Dr Smith came in I went first, Tigger hid under the exam table. I growled and hissed some more and then I had to be "taken to the back". They shaved my hiny again and gave me a shot and trimmed all my nails. Mom said it I was screaming so loud you could hear me in the waiting room and Tiggers eyes just stayed as wide as he could keep them with fright. Dr Smith came back in laughing because all the fuss is just part of my charm; he handed me to mommy andshe was laughing too and I was pissed off, so I took my nails out and slashed them across her forehead. Then I hooked one into her neck. She yelled at me with a big NO, BAD GIRL TOBY! And then she put me in the carrier. Tigger was in Grandma's arms by then in shock. Dr Smith looked him over, he was the perfect patient. Mom came to check on me, I just growled and turned away. After we got home, I did not speak to her for over an hour. It was a rough day.

 

working on it

I tell you this weight loss stuff is tough, but it is fun too. I am down a few ounces all ready and can reach further than I have before. Mom decided that she had to take the dry food away during the day....Trinity was getting chunky too, but don't tell her I said that......and we are getting more wet food than normal which is okay with me but I am not that big a fan. Anyway, now she has got me doing exercises too, she calls them stairs. We have two doors to get into our home and so she takes me in the stairway and makes me go up and down once or twice a day, sometimes I run them too, just for fun. I look forward to it now and try to sneak out the front door, but she will not let me do it unsupervised, in case our neighbor below comes home and wonders why I am in the stairway all by myself...that and she does not want me to even get the idea of trying to step outside. So no big deal, I am feeling better than ever!!!!!

 

hard to keep clean

Okay, I know that Big is Beautiful and I am a very pretty girl, but I have to admit, for me, I have one drawback. I am finding that I cannot, how shall we say clean the way I would like. I just cannot bend the way I could as a slim kitten (if I ever was). You know it is bad when you mother starts following you around the house with newborn baby wipes and just when you least expect it, there is a hand under your tail. It was getting so bad that I got an infection. Mom thought is was just a UTI, but turned out it was worse, I was a little blocked....how embarrasing I know. M0m called the doctor and they shaved my hiny and soaked me which involved water which totally pissed me off and mom said they heard me scream from the waiting room and they put on cream and gave me a shot and medicine to take. Can you believe it!!!! I did have a UTI too. And then even with all they just put me thru, they went and tried to cut my nails, what the fur were they thinking!!!! Mom said she heard me the second time I screamed to even though it was not as long. From now on I have to go back every six months to be "looked at" I am not sure what that means, but I do not trust them now. And Mommy is still chasing me around with those damn wipes because the doctor said she had too. I do have to admit though that it did make me feel better when Mommy told me that was not really enjoying it either.
