Arrival Story: We found Terra on the Siamese Rescue site in Virginia and adopted her over the internet. She's currently on her way to us, slowly working her way up the east coast to Montreal. She should be arriving the weekend of October 15/16th. We'll have more info once she gets here. I have many friends watching over her and loving her up until she gets here. She's in excellent hands!
Updated! Terra is HOME!! She arrived at 4:30pm on October 16th safe and sound. Mom and Dad drove the last leg of the Meezer Express from Saint Albans Vermont. She slept all the way in her carrier but had been on the road for 2 days on and off, so who could blame her. She came out of her carrier right away and started to love everyone up!! No stress or shyness that we've noticed at all. Maggie May and Blue are curious, but she has to stay in isolation for a few days until she settles in and sees a Vet. All three are sleeping peacefully as I type this, so I think the first night will be great. She's adorable!! A terrific bunch of people at SCRC Virginia did a great job rescuing her, taking care of her and getting her to us! We are very grateful!!
Bio: We'll have more to tell you once she gets here and gets to know her new family. Of course...she'll have to take French lessons once she gets here, but she's a Siamese so she's smart!!
Updated : She's met the family! Terra didn't last long in ISO, she cried all the time and the other cats (Blue in particular) squeezed in past the door to introduce himself. They are getting along quite well, no major upsets and playing together. Terra is a screamer though, she screams like a banshee when Blue tries to wrestle, he's confused about it all, but I think she's just setting boundries. At night she has to go back into ISO or they don't sleep, they race up and down three flights of stairs with a screech every so often. Humans need to sleep!!
November 2007 update:Terra has been here for two years now and has been a fantastic addition to our family. She bonded with Blue right away and won over Maggie May in no time flat! She's a daddy's girl through and through and spends every morning sitting on Dad's lap and waits for him to come home every night at the bay window. She starts crying and pacing as soon as she sees his car pull into the driveway. It took her a couple of days, but D'Arcy and her are really good friends, as soon as she taught him she wouldn't take any guff from a new guy and he allowed her to wash his face things have been great!
I finally got Cap off the computer so I can write in my diary. I suspect he's picking up allies over on Dogster because he's been really hogging the keyboard the past couple of days. This is not right!
I was so excited this evening because Mom and Dad were surfin' the Net (now this is something I need explaining..I saw "Surf's Up" with Aaron and Amy and that little Penguin didn't go near the internet..but anyway..) Dad has this 'thing' about Victorian houses, he keeps looking for one out in the country and says one day we're going to move and tonight he found a place with so many pictures it was amazing! Mom spotted this really cool authentic Vcitorian wallpaper on the site, it was actually from 1800 and something, and decided it would look great on my page. Well it does! I'm a modern girl, but I tell ya, this pattern is amazing and I couldn't believe it was actually designed over a hundred years ago in these colours! It's so spring like. *sigh*...SPRING!! Yes SPRING! It happened last Friday Mom said. It's still cold outside, but lots more sun so Dad opened the windows a little today so we could sniff and I can smell it! No new grass to sniff yet, but I can see the brown patches out there. The birdies are singing up a storm too and any day now we'll be seeing the "Biker Birds"...(those little white crowned sparrows, they look like they have bike helmets on their little heads) showing up. They stop over at our place for around a month on their way up north to nest.
The red-winged blackbirds will be here soon too, and unfortunately those noisey Grackles, but I guess we can't have it all, right? Mom says that Canoe used to howl at the Grackles, he really didn't like them at all, I didn't know Canoe, he went to the bridge before I was born, but he sounded real cool.
Well I guess I should go, I'm so excited about the new look of my page I'm just rambling and rambling..I'll meow at you all later..
Now it's my turn. I do not boss him around, I don't care how he whines, but washing his face and ears is NOT bossing. I chase him that's true, but he likes that, I wrestle him (beat him most times too) but I think he likes that. Ok, I bite his bum once in a while, but hey..he usually deserves that. He thinks that when he's got Mom alone for pets and brushing that I shouldn't come in and butt in, well he's got another thing coming, if the brushes are out, I want some of that good grooming too, he's not the only one around here with lucious fur ya know. He pushes too far sometimes, he and Blue get Mom almost to themselves, but Daddy is mine all mine, there is no reason to try to coral my Dad. He should know better, a few pets now and then is ok, but he really tries to hog.
Enough said. I love him, but he's got to learn respect for his elders.
We just passed my two year annipurrsary at my forever home and what can I say? It's been great! We did have a few months of tremendous sadness last fall when Maggie May got very ill with Lymphoma and that was hard on all of us. She had some chemo and that worked for awhile and was her old Maggie May self for two months, but we had some very worried times at the beginning and especially at the end. I really loved Maggie, she was so good to me. She let me snuggle with her which is something Blue isn't big on.
I tell ya, on cold Canadian winter nights every cat should have a big sister Maine Coon to snuggle with! I'll always miss her so much! I hope she won't forget me either and be waiting at the bridge when I cross one day.
Mom and Dad love us, but it was obvious they were still hurting and we know they'd always had three cats so we weren't surprised that after 6 months they adopted us a new little brother from Siamese Rescue where I came from. He bonded with Blue right away, I was a little jealous because Blue seemed so much happier to have a baby brother. I hissed a bit at D'Arcy, and had to teach him that he must never pull away when I go to give him a bath, that's my job you see. I wash Blue's face, and D'Arcy had to stay still and allow me to wash him too! D'Arcy discovered that he and I love all the same games and he couldn't resist a good game of tag and wrestle with the Panic Mouse. We race around the house like a herd of elaphants (whatever they are, that's what Mom calls us!) Blue sometimes just stands back and watches, I caught him giving me some dirty looks, but I think that's because D'Arcy loves all of Blue's favorite games too and Blue just doesn't like to share!
I have a feeling that now that Halloween has passed it won't be long before that tree with all those things that look like cat toys goes up in the living room. I can't wait to see what D'Arcy does. He's never had a home Christmas before and this should be fun. I have a feeling since he's such a little monkey Mom will be pulling her hair out! Lol!
I'll catch ya all later...Btw, Mom redid my page..you've got to see it..cool!
