Sunshine, a soft & warm bed, & being with mom.
Whenever mom wasn't home.
He liked to bat things around. He LOVED super-long (~ 8") twist ties!
Favorite Nap Spot:
In front of the fireplace.
Ham Baby Food!!! He has passed that affinity on to his younger brother, MacIntosh!
He lived many years & faced many challenges in order to stay with me for 19 1/2 years. Over & over, he had major adventures that would have undone anyone with less courage & chutzpah than he had. Also: Flying, liberating squirrel trapped in the furnace
Popka came to live with me when he was about 8 weeks old. He had more adventures than I've ever heard of in any one cat. He is the cat one could write a book about. He is an angel kitty now. He has my heart, forever.
In about 1986 a newspaper in Lynnwood, WA, did a full half page article about Popka & his adventures!! It included a photo of him with mom, taken by a newspaper photographer who probably never spent a more frustrating photo session in his life! Popka definitely had ideas of his own about sitting still "on demand"!!!
Getting old doesn't mean BEING old!

Hi EveryKitty Reading This,
I am SO LUCKY!! First I was DOTD, yesterday, and now, my diary is a Daily Diary Pick. Mama is writing this for me after midnight, and after she happened to see the p-mail from Catster, but she and I think that the DDP is REALLY for “tomorrow” (which is “today”, already) ~ and not for her “still today” (which is now “yesterday”).
But the timing for my mama just couldn’t be better…… She’s waiting for a return call from the on-call hospice nurse, ‘cause there are questions she needs to ask….. But it’s only the second time since last July she’s EVER called them….. and she’s kinda scared to go to sleep tonight ~ not because that would be SO bad, but because she’s afraid she might not HEAR her mama if she is needed….. Her mama doesn’t speak up any more to say she needs help.
Sooo… she sat down here while she’s waiting for that phone call back, and here in her e-mail is the lovely New S’prise from Catster…….. and sometimes, things happen so serendipitously and so “right on” that she Just Doesn’t Know How To Say Thank You ENOUGH, sometimes……. Or How To Say It “Right”.
Still and all………. Thank you. From me, and from my mama. We are blessed to have all this Catster Support back in our lives……. Like it never left!!!
I do love my mama, and I know how her heart is aching………… That makes these picks, and all the gifts, and rosies, and stars and p-mails and photos and wonderful kindnesses that I already got from so many kitties ~ It just makes such cheery and supportive gifts Extra Special!!
[I’m learning real fast, too, not to hover over the ads that don’t have any click-off button……….. This is my second time writing this diary entry ~ in WORD this time ~ But that’s okay. Mama is still waiting for the phone call!!]
((Looks again at the Diary Central page…….. Does an Entire Happy Dance right in the middle of the Rainbow Bridge!))

♫ Wow! Mama was up very early today and noticed that I am one of the "Diary of the Day" choices today. That is Quite An Honor, when you notice how many kitties are writing diaries! It has made my 30th Birthday That Much More Special!
♥ Lo ving Thank You's, Dearest Catster Kitties! ♥
[P.S. Can't get rid of that unwanted space!! Just not good enough at this any more...... But still happily grateful!]

Today is my 30th birthday.
Wow. That’s really hard for me to believe……….
Thirty years since my antics used to amuse my mama………… Thirty years since I discovered my voluble and loquacious voice………… Thirty years or so since my many adventures, both those described in this diary and those not yet recorded….
Thirty years since I caught that unmentionable bird; thirty years since my mama climbed that fence and that tree to rescue me from those Doberman Pinscher DOGS that “treed” me in their yard………… Thirty years since I first began snuggling with my mama, and sneezed all over her about 20 times a minute……… Thirty years since I discovered the vagaries and the pleasures of the inimitable twist tie……
Thirty years since I proved to mama that Cats Can, SO, FLY!!................ (with proper motivation).
Thirty years since I used to ride in the hood of my mama’s “hoodie”………… Thirty years since I became a “heat-seeking, garbage-eating solar-powered cat” (a song mama’s friend made up for me)………
Twenty-eight years since that awful accident, and mama’s Total Terror, but that eventually caused me to have a WHOLE PAGE with a HUGE PHOTO in the local newspaper………. (I was a Survivor, I was!!)
………… And a little more than ten years since I came to the Rainbow Bridge, and mama began to miss me so sadly.
She calls me the Kitty Of Her Heart.
My mama lives with our grandma, and our grandma is getting ready to pass over the Rainbow Bridge. She doesn’t remember any more………. Doesn’t remember me, doesn’t remember how important Macky had become in her life………. Doesn’t remember much. Mama takes care of her. She cries a lot.
But today her tears are for me………. Sadness intermingled with the joy of memories funny, poignant, sad, joyful………. But always loving.
♥ Popka ♥
From Popka’s mama:
As I said once before, Baby Cat, “I still miss you, achingly, longingly, with all my heart and soul……..
Happy Birthday, little Popka (In Sad & Loving Memory). I love you.
With sad, longing tears, but singing Happy Birthday To You!!!”
