October 1st 1993
Black and White
Sleeping and playing in bathtubs
Favorite Nap Spot:
In her cat bed on the couch
Blended Friskies wet food. She also liked strawberry yogurt and sour cream!
She was an expert headbutter!
Tigger and I had a feral mom. We were born in a building across the yard from our parents' duplex in October of 1993. One day my human aunt heard insistent meowing coming from the place where the two buildings met. (The buildings were going to be demolished to allow for the widening of the road.) So, my human uncle took a crowbar and gently broke through the wall. A few minutes later, there was a little face peering back at him from the hole he'd created...it was Tigger!
Mom took Tigger inside the house and put him on a heating pad inside a dog crate they owned. She bought milk replacement for him, and made a small makeshift kitty box out of cardboard. The next day my aunt told my mom that she heard more meowing coming from the hole in the wall. When my mom went to look with a flashlight, there was a sweet fluffy black face peering out--me! Mom tried to get me out, but I would not let anyone pull me out; it took a few hours. They finally thought to get some canned tuna and I ventured close enough to the hole for Mom's friend's son to pull me out.
The next day, a Monday, Mom took us to the vet. It ends up we were around 10 days old. Mom and Dad bottle fed us and raised us up. After all that (not to mention falling in love with us) they decided to keep us! :) Mom and Dad had already rescued Buddy. Buddy ended up being a surrogate momcat to us.
Sister to Tigger Angel Baby, adopted sister to Buddy Angel, Bob ~ Sweet Angel Boy, Pippin, Marmelade and Midge. She is afraid of strangers and even our friends. Is affectionate with her mom and dad though. She liked my singing; whenever I would start she'd come running up and stare into my eyes, rubbing up against me!
****06/23/08 Taylor has hyperthyroidism which has caused her to lose weight rapidly despite her eating like a horse. She is on medication for it now.
****08/12/08 Taylor recently had a blood test and her liver values came back very high. We are waiting to find out what is the cause. Please say a prayer for my girl.
****10/31/08 Taylor's Hyperthyroidism is under control and her liver values are coming down. We will update you when she has her next check up.
****12/26/08 Taylor's blood work came back and her T4 number is elevated. We think it's because she is fighting us giving her the medicine and sometimes we find undigested pills the little bugger is spitting out! Her liver values were better, which is good.
****05/24/09 Good News! Taylor is doing much better. We switched her over to liquid Methimazole, which she doesn't hate as much as she does the pills. She had a blood panel and her thyroid level came back right where it should be! And, her liver and kidney values are normal :) She even gained half a pound over the past month.
****08/06/09 Taylor is doing fairly well. She is maintaining her weight, though it is still on the low side. She still has her catitude, especially when we give her the medicine!
****01/31/10 Please see Taylor's Diary for further updates.
I have a catitude!

My dear friends, I thank you for remembering me today. My momma cannot believe it has been 5 years since I made my journey to Rainbow Bridge. Tears are coming to her eyes as she types this for me. Momma had an 8mm video of Tigger and me made into a DVD that she can watch on her computer. It's from when we were babies and in some of the video footage she is bottle feeding us. How special and precious are those memories! :)
Again, I thank you for your love and purrs today.
Your Friend Always Taylor

Thank you so much for remembering me today on my third Bridge anniversary. It's hard to believe that three years have gone by. My mom re-read past entries from my diary today. It brought back a lot of sad and also happy memories. Here's a poem that my mom wanted to share today:
Gentle eyes that see so much,
paws that have the quiet touch,
Purrs to signal "all is well"
and show more love than words could tell.
Graceful movements touched with pride,
a calming presence by our side
A friendship that takes time to grow
Small wonder why we love them so.
