Likes: Playing with the laser light with Blue II, chasing him, paper balls, hunting moths.
Pet-Peeves: Going to the veterinarian's. No one throwing toys for her to retrieve.
Favorite Toy: Laser light, feather on a stick.
Favorite Nap Spot: On the back of the couch, on my bed, or in a sunny spot.
Favorite Food: Meow mix cat food. She won't eat anything else. We've tried salmon, tuna, turkey, chicken, and she will eat nothing but her kibbles!
Skills: She can carry her water or food dish if they are empty (to remind me to fill them). She also wraps all four legs down each side of the rocking chair , so that if someone sits down hard, it won't knock her off, even if she is sound asleep & hunting moths
Arrival Story: There were feral cats living behind my sister-in-laws house. I told my nieces and nephews that if they could catch her, I would like to have her. After a couple of days of trying, they finally caught her! She was so wild though, it was 2 1/2 weeks before we were able to touch her or hold or cuddle her. To this day, she doesn't like to be cuddled with unless it is her idea. She adores her little half brother Blue II, and often acts like his mother. These two felines are inseperable. Since Ruby is only half siamese she isn't pure white on her body. The older she gets, the darker she gets. She has turned mostly brown on her body now. She is a very loving cat with all who come in contact with her.
UPDATE: On 12/15/07 I noticed that Ruby was breathing rapidly. Other than this, she was healthy in every way. We took her to the Vet to see what was the matter. It turned out that she had a lung infection. It was treatable, but her lungs were very badly scarred from the infection, and the Vet only gave her a ten percent chance of surviving it. He treated her with antibiotics daily, and every other day using a syringe to drain the thick pus from her lungs. Miraculously, she survived those first days of treatment against all odds. She was even allowed to come home for Christmas to be with us. We were under strict orders to keep her quiet, but she kept playing with Blue II, so we thought that she was steadily getting better. We are so grateful that Ruby was able to come home and spend Christmas with us. Four days after Christmas, she was resting on our bed. Suddenly she jumped up crying loudly, then she fell over. She was in severe pain, and was having alot of trouble breathing. I drove madly to the Animal Hospital while my husband held her. Her loud painful meows had almost stopped by the time we got to the Vet's. He rushed in to treat her. Our precious baby girl didn't survive. The Vet said that she "blew an artery." She had fought so hard to survive, but then her artery burst...she was meant to be an angel that day. We miss you terribly Angel girl, we will never forget you. Rest in peace...
Bio: I simply adore my little half brother Blue II. He follows me efurry where I go...just as if he were my shadow. He and I cat nap most of the day saving up our strength for later on. After dinner we both "come alive." We race up and down the hall chasing each other...we even trade being the chaser for being the chasee. Then we roll around on the floor wrestling with each other. After we tire of this, Mom or Dad will break out the laser light. We chase that darn thing until we are both so dizzy that we fall over! We usually come to bed after Mom and Dad turn off all of the lights and go to bed. Sometimes we keep on playing and knocking things over though....and then Mom will come and get us and make us go to bed! MOL!

Efurryone in the North East of the United States is in jeopardy. Purrlease people, if you are ordered to evacuate, JUST DO IT. This lady Irene is nobody to mess with! The weather men are calling her the Storm of the Century. HEAD FOR THE HILLS! And people, purrlease don't leave your pets behind to fend fur themselves...take them with you. I want you all to be safe. I am purraying that Irene loses intensity before she hits land...
Yesterday was the most pawsome Birthday I have efur had. When I woke up, Louis treated me to breakfast in bed. After a delicious meal, he then took me to a birfday pawty at the Bridge. All of my furiends were there from the Chipmunk Posse and Hernando's Hideaway. We pawtied fur what seemed like hours, and efurryone had a good time.
After that pawty was ofur, White Boots took Suki and I down to Hernando's Hideaway fur a pawty there and a tour of the brewery that my brofur Blue II, Midnight, and Misu will soon be re-opening. White Boots landed the Hover Balloon gently onto the brewery floor, and Sooks and I stepped out.
I was amazed at the sheer size of the brewery. It was immense. There were giant copper vats filled with chocolate fur the making of chokky mice and chokky ale, the two main products that Midnight and Blue II make. Misu is the Taste Tester. After the fur men make the chocolate mice and brew the chocolate ale, Misu carefully tests each batch to make sure it is up to their high standards. All three of them have done an amazing job getting the brewery ready to re-open. Blue II has also cleared the runway of the airport, so that he and Midnight can fly their confections all ofur the world to the countries that order from them. They have a full sized jet to accomplish this.
As I looked out ofur the brewery floor, I saw a large banner that said "Happy Birthday!" from Midnight. In the larger room, I saw a huge balloon bouquet. There was also a six layer cake fur my birfday from the crew. I was speechless. They had done all of this for me, on my birfday...I was so touched by all the love I was feeling, that I blushed deeply. Midnight, Misu, and Blue II gave Suki, White Boots, D Max, Ralphie, Sedoso, Brittany, and me a tour of the facility. They explained how the organic chocolate was brewed into ale, and cooked to just the right temperature to make the chokky mice, and it was furry interesting. We all had a super time there.
After the tour was ofur, White Boots flew Suki and I ofur to Hernando's Hideaway fur anofur pawty. We pawtied with Aggie, Maggie, and CLAW. They gave me a white birfday cake with ruby red butterflies, a red cat throne, and a flower arrangement with red roses. I was so thankful. Then we had brunch with the New Orleans Kitties who had made shrimp pies for brunch. They were delicious! All of the Hernandonian's were there, and we all had a good time celebrating my birthday. THANK YOU ONE AND ALL...I had a pawsome birthday! I have nefur felt so loved in all my life...
On Thursday, October 7th 2010, at 2:18 p.m. EST my beloved Louis became an angel. He made his trip to the Rainbow Bridge swiftly. I, along with his many furiends greeted him at the Rainbow Bridge. We held a large pawrade in his honor. At the end of the festive pawrade we held a ceremony fur Louis where he was given his angel wings. Louis LeBeau was a sight to behold....he looked so magnificent with his newly acquired wings! Efurryone at the Rainbow Bridge was in attendance. Not one angel wanted to miss the chance to meet Heaven's newest angel.
We all showed Louis the finer points of flying, and before long, he was flying like an ace! He quickly learned how to do inverted flight, loop de loops, sharp left and right turns, stalls, and how to travel at the speed of light. He was an excellent student! His furst flight was back to Earth where he checked in on his furmily. He let his beloved mom know that he had made it to the Bridge safely, and that he was happy and whole again. He was happy to tell her that he had no more fevers or pain. He felt like a kitten again! To show his family how good he felt, he had a wrestling match with his brofur Ethan. Efurryone could see that Louis was a new man. After a long visit, Louis told efurryone goodbye, and headed back to his new home, the Rainbow Bridge.
I am happy that Louis and I are togefur again, and we will nefur be apawt from here on out. It is wonderpurr that he feels like he did befur the cancer made him so sick. Louis fought the battle like a warrior, and I am so proud of him. Purrlease stop by his page and console his beloved mother, she misses him so! Thank you furiends!
