I love vacation in the mountains when I get to go outside, even if mom is holding on to me.

Merry Christmas to me, a new place to sleep.  I obviously have had lots of beauty sleep.

Arrival Story:
Liza was homeless and would not let me near her in 1993, she slowly started trusting me and I brought her in during an ice storm in January 1994. She curled up in a cat bed and made herself at home. I had hoped to find her a home because I did not think she and Snuggle would get along-they don't. Her long hair was matted and I had to cut most of it off. She had an injury to one eye and the vet was unable to do anything to improve the vison in that eye. I could not find a home for her and she was so perfect that by the time she was healthy and people started asking for her, I would not give her up. If they did not want her when she needed help, I could not trust them with her. I am so glad she shared her life with me.

Bio:
Liza was diagnosed with hepatocellular carcinoma (liver cancer) in May 2005. She has been a fighter all her life and made it through major surgery and is going strong despite her illness. She is so loved.

Lady Liza


I loved it here

I was Lady Liza. A rescue with one good eye, matted hair, thin, but I found a mom who loved me. She groomed me, gave me lots of yummy food AND LOVE.

I made a tremendous turn around. I lived with my grandma quite a bit because Snuggle didn't like me. However, mom would see me often and made sure I was a happy girl. I was. I was the best player. I was so grateful to have a family who loved me.

My Catster friends were wonderful when I was healthy and sick and were kind to mom when she lost me to cancer.

I wish I could have stayed with my family forever and I wish Catster could stay.

Mom will always love and miss me and all of our friends will have a special place in her heart.

Til we meet again...

 

A Difficult Anniversary

Mom is having a tough time today. Two years ago today, she was sitting in the hospital waiting room while I had surgery for liver cancer. She sat there for almost 12 hours, waiting, crying, praying. She would not leave for the hotel until she could see me.

When I was starting to wake up, the surgeon came to get mom and bring her back to see me. I did not feel like raising my head, but I followed her with my eyes.

I had been so sweet that morning. I walked around on my harness and leash and said hi to everyone. Then I jumped up and pushed mom out of her chair and napped on it, until I saw this potted tree next to the chair. Wow! A tree with dirt to curl up in. I was right over there and I curled up and was having a great nap when they came to get me.

We had had a nice morning, but then mom picked me up and they reached for me. Mom held me close and was crying into my hair. She could not let me go, I did not understand.

They were unable to get all of the tumor. Mom learned that even if they had, we only make it about 80-90 days after surgery. She was so afraid.

But on July 20, 2006, I celebrated my one year post surgery anniversary. Mom was so happy. She was starting to relax a little.

That would be the only anniversary year. In September, 431 days post surgery, mom and I had to say goodbye to our time together here. Her heart is broken. She misses me so much. I hope she feels me today, thanking her for the extra time we had because she fought so hard for me.

 

Liza's Song

On the night that Liza left me, I went to the car and I did not know how I would make it home. I turned on the radio and the Tina Turner song "Simply the Best" started at just at that moment. I knew it was playing for my sweet Liza, the best cat I ever met.

When I saw I could put it on her page, I was so happy. I know that is how it is supposed to be. It is on her sister's page too, but I plan to chose a song just for her. I don't think Liza would mind sharing though. She was an excellent child. She was the best.
