Arrival Story: On the afternoon of Wednesday, April 27th, 2005, my husband rescued Reebok and Nike from where he works. They had a little sister and were living in a storage area where some guys were feeding them. Their sister was taken home and named Seagate. The guys told my husband about the two boys so he went to look at them. He called me on the phone to talk about fostering them and then turning them over to Safe Haven rescue to help them find their permanent homes. They were picked up by hand, put in a box, and brought to our house! We made a vet appointment for that afternoon and the results were all good. I gave the boys a nice little bath TOGETHER in the bathroom sink, treated them with Revolution, and saw just how handsome they were. Then we set up the guest bedroom for them to get comfortable in their new surroundings.
Bio: Needless to say, these guys never left! When Reebok and Nike were babies, they often used the litter box together and it was so cute! Although you'll find Reebok napping with the other cats, there is something special about seeing him cuddled up with Nike because it reminds me so much of when they were babies and I know that they have a special bond. When Reebok was a baby, his way of meowing at us sounded like "eh-ehhhhh" and this is still the way he talks to us today. He's a real sweetheart and loves to sit by me or on me when I'm watching TV or on the computer but he is so big now! He's always been a big eater but a mild-mannered and sweet boy.
Mom's friend at work has a daughter that lives with her boyfriend. Her daughter has a cat named Olly, who just turned a year old in April. Olly hasn't been very happy because his Mom adopted two doggies. Now that Olly's Mom will be going away to college soon, they decided Olly should live with his grandma, grandpa, and uncle! The dogs will stay with the boyfriend.
Mom's friend asked if she should join Catster and of course Mom told her yes, but she only has a cell phone camera and is having trouble loading the pics onto her computer. She's working on it!
We gave Olly one of our big playtents, scratcher, Peek-a-Prize toy box, Fling-ama-string (since we had two), and a bag full of little toys since we can't have them laying around anymore because of Huey. We made Olly a happy boy!
Mom has seen one picture of Olly. He's a gray tabby, and they say he's a big boy but I'm sure he's not as big as me!
I hope Olly joins Catster before the year is over! I'll let you know.
Thank you Catster and friends for remembering that Nike and I celebrate our gotcha days today because Mom forgot! She has been forgetting these special dates lately and for some reason didn't have it on the calendar either.
Nike and I were just talking about our first bath together in the bathroom sink and how much fun we had being in our own room the first couple of weeks. We always got excited when Mom or Dad would open the door to see us and would meow and run to greet them.
We sure grew up to be the biggest kitty boys in the house!
Have a great day and weekend, friends! Thanks for stopping by!
Last night at exactly 11:59pm, I jumped up on the bed to knead on Mom, so that's where I was when I turned 7! I nearly sat on Pebbles who was already there, so she gave me a few smacks to wish me a Happy Birthday!
Mom is a little sad that we're already 7 (MOL), but happy that we're part of the family.
Thank you to my wonderful friends for the gifts and messages you sent me today! Some of your messages sure made me "jiggle in the middle!"
