Arrival Story:
A cat came by my house several times in August and September of 1993. I let her stay with me overnight and fed her if she didn't go home. On September 18, 1993, I found her mother, who said that her black cat didn't like the other two cats in her house. I explained what went on for the past few weeks, so she looked at my house and then asked me if I could make my home hers. I was more than happy to; after all, she adopted me by coming by my house! Her previous mother called her Black Cat and I named her Abby. The name fit her and she answered to it. She was between 2 1/2 and 4 years old when she came into my life, and she gave me 11 of the best years. From the kink at the end of her tail and her many vocalizations, she had some Siamese in her. She hissed and growled at other cats at first, but became more tolerant and then made two cat friends (both black cats) later.

Abby passed away on November 24, 2004 from lymphoma. It was the night before Thanksgiving (US) and I thank her for all the time she gave me. She's my first cat and I will always love and miss her. Abby is a one and only who can never be replaced.

Today is Thanksgiving here and this year it falls on your 12th Bridge anniversary.

As we give thanks today, one of the things I am thankful for is the time you spent with me. You are my first kitty and if it weren’t for you, I may have not had Lisa, Zoe or any future cat. You knew something when you came by my house, which eventually became your house.

I have a few pictures and your Catster page in front of me as I write this. They are all memories of a beautiful and special cat.

I gave you treats—and thanks to everyone who gave you a present!


I Will Never Forget Your Adoption Of Me

When I woke up 23 years ago today, I didn't know what would happen that night.

You were a frequent visitor to my house for a month and I let you stay overnight a few times. After a woman heard me call you, she told me you were her cat and she named you Black Cat. She said you didn't like the other two cats in her house. I told her you came by to visit me, as you did many times for a while.

After a few minutes, she asked me if I had any cats. I told her I didn't. She wanted to know if I could give you a home as an only cat.

I had visiting cats for years, even when I was a kid. For several reasons, we couldn't have pets. I wasn't sure whether or not I should have my own cat because I never had a pet before.

My neighbor and I watched TV and spoke about you for a few more minutes. I then decided that since you enjoyed your visits with me, I would give you a home as an only cat.

It was one of the best decisions I made. Because you chose my house to hang out at, it was you who adopted me.

PS: Thanks to everyone who gave presents!


I Would Have Been 25 Today

Mom and I are not sure who said it, but someone said I would have been 25 today.

I spent my morning at the Bridge spa getting the full treatment. I especially loved the massage and the way my stylist did my hair. I had cake with all my Bridge pals and we played games this afternoon.

We will party it up and have catnip drinks in a few minutes, so I have to go!

Thanks and purrs to everyone who gave me presents!
