She's a dancing fool!
Maggie May came to us from a Maine Coon Breeder. We had a Maine Coon mix Tortie for 17 years who was adored beyond belief, when our beloved Amy died from Thyroid compications we knew we had to have another. We had to wait almost 14 weeks for her after meeting her, but it was worth it, she's been a total delight ever since her first night. She bonded closely with our 11 month old Siamese Canoe at the time and they became eachother's shadows until his untimely passing 13 years later.
Maggie May and Canoe were the main fixture in our home for almost 13 years, they followed eachother around, slept together, wrestled, washed eachother. She was totally devoted to her big brother. When he went to the Rainbow Bridge she was devasted. We brought Blue into our home hoping that would help, but she resisted him, I guess a 10 week old kitten was extremely overwhelming for this girl who was still so full of grief. Blue has a persistant personality and is a very gentle little boy and eventually Maggie May was caught letting down her guard and allowed him to snuggle with her and has even been caught washing him. There's too much of a age difference to hope for any real play, but they do have a thing going over his scratching post for a perch to bird watch in the morning. She still misses Canoe and has found the spot in the den only a foot away from Canoe's burial spot where she spends a lot of her time. She's never been outside and didn't see us burrying him so we have no idea how she knows, but she never went to that area before in her 13 years. I don't think she'll ever really stop mourning.

Maggie May crossed the Rainbow Bridge today after a 3 month battle with Lymphoma. Her Mom and Dad were with her when she crossed. She's with Canoe again. After Chemo treatments she bounced back for 2 1/2 good months, but the cancer came back suddenly and attacked her liver. We are grateful for those 2 1/2 good months we had with her, she was comfortable, happy and loved.

I turned 14 years old today. Mom says I remind her of a Dan Hill song, but I don't know what she's talking about. I asked Mom to upload a photo taken at my party, I was deep into my Birthday 'cat grass' and my nosey brother Blue kept checking out my new "Harley Davidson" collar. I think he has collar envy! We had Fancy Feast 'Grilled Chicken' for dinner, some 'Greenie' treats and also some "Temptation" treats. Later we had catnip and Mom played 'wand toys' with us, which is my favorite game of all. We had some music too, that's two nights in a row Mom's played CD's for us and we've danced, this could get to be a routine and I sure hope that happens as I am a dancing fool!
After all that I snuck away for awhile and let Blue and Terra party, those two have so much energy that they wear me out just watching them race around playing 'tag' and 'hide n' seek'!! My new collar really jingles differently then my old one and Blue seems to think I'm a new cat toy! Sheeesh!
Of course Mom played "Every Picture Tells a Story" and danced "Maggie May" with me. I LOVE that song! All in all it was a very good day, or would have been perfect if Cleo from next door hadn't been lounging around on our front porch, even Blue is getting tired of seeing her always vamping Mom!

I'm feeling much better now, but am missing a bottom canine toothy-peg after that nasty dental! I wasn't up to writing an update in my diary until this week, I was just too upset with those Clavimox pills I had to take twice a day for over a week. Now that they've stopped I'm not gagging and coughing anymore and feeling peachy keen! Blue kept showing how to spit them out, but I couldn't get it right, I did get rid of one, but Mom found it and I had to take it over again...YUCK!!
Anyways, it was very heartwarming to see how Blue reacted to me being away for two nights at the Vet. He head butted me and purred up a storm when I got home and it felt so good that he cared so much! He's grown up to be a great little guy and has wormed his way deep into my heart. We cuddle a lot these days, in fact both he and Terra cuddle a lot with me, not so much with eachother and I thought it would be the other way around. Mom says it's because it's winter and everyone should have a Maine Coon to cuddle with, especially if the rest of the family are all Siamese with that short fur! I like to think it's because they think I'm lovable, because, I am!!
Check out my new photos if you have time, Mom's put up some new ones! The one at the top (primary) was taken yesterday, March 8, 2006. She also put up my portrait she painted of me quite a few years ago. I love watching the Cardinals come to the bird feeders, not that I've ever been outside ever, but Mom painted my daydream, to see one up close.

I hope all my friends had a great holiday season, we did, but the tree is gone now and I really miss it! All three of us had fun with that tree! I really like my new sister Terra, she never attacks me, is always respectful so I don't mind her snuggling up to me at all. We play with her Panic Mouse together, which is good because Blue just doesn't get the idea of that Panic Mouse, he only likes to leap and jump after toys being thrown or wand toys held high in the air so he can show off! (BOYS!!) There's been a lot of excitment over the past couple of months, since it's gotten cold some field mice have made it into the house and we've caught 4 of them together, we're like a finely oil machine when it comes to intruders and they just don't stand a chance! Blue is the one who finds them first, then Terra can get them the quickest and I'm not too shabby either so all three of us get to play with it. Mom shows up and Mousie mysteriously vanishes after she's opened the front door. I have no idea how she does that trick!! Mom says I have to have a couple of teeth pulled soon. I'm really nervous about that. She says I have to stay overnight at the Vet and I don't remember ever having to do that before, but Mom assures me that I did a very long time ago.
