Arrival Story:
Alice was adopted from my vet in November 1993. She was born in a barn in October and had two sisters, a tortie and a white cat with orange spots and were given to the vet when they were only a few weeks old. She got to come to her new home when she was 8 weeks old and immediately took over the place. Toby always took good care of Alice, prompting my 3-year-old niece to say, "Toby is a mom to that little cat." (No reflection on Toby's masculinity.) In the months since Toby went to the bridge, Alice sometimes cries for him at night.

Bio:
When she was younger, any high place was the place for Alice...on top of doors, on top of the kitchen cabinets...looking down at lower forms of life. She is the most talkative cat in the family, and often decides to express herself shortly after the human has gone to bed.

Update:
Thank you to all the kitties who have purred for Alice. We had a very scary episode on Sunday 5/3/09 when suddenly she ran to hide and was gasping for air; after about 45 minutes, she came out of it. A peaceful evening and nighttime of sleeping with her mama in bed followed. On Monday 5/4/09, Alice's breathing was even more shallow, but she was calm. We had an appointment to be dropped off at the vet, but on the way, Alice started gasping horribly again and after less than a minute, went to the rainbow bridge to be with her beloved Toby.
