Favorite Food: Iams Less Active Cat Food. As she aged, she also liked canned cat food for seniors.She also liked the meat I was eating for dinner (loved turkey best.)
Skills: Climbing up to very high places so no one can bother her, perching on small window sills for a sun nap, sometimes sleeping rolled up in a ball on top of her head.
Arrival Story: My mom bought her when she lived in Everett Washington. She was being used as a breeder cat. Mom fell in love with her at first sight.They shared many happy years together. When my mother passed away March 1, 1998, I asked my Step-Father if I could have her. He agreed that it would be better for her, as he was away at work all day, and she would be too lonely. So I took Muffy home to Sonora, Calif. She loved it here. I kept the house at a constant 70 degrees to keep her warm, as her breed has no hair. I loved her deeply. For six years we were best friends. She followed me everywhere. She sat patiently on my knee while I was eating, because she knew that when I was through, there would be a treat for her from my plate. She was so patient! At night in bed she would curl up on my head or face to go to sleep. She had to be as close to me as she could. In May of 2004 I took her to the vet for an ear problem. She kept shaking her head. After several tests we found out that she had a cancerous tumor in her brain growing out of her ear canal. She had immediate surgery to remove as much of the tumor as was possible. I medicated her daily. The tumor was growing so large you could see a huge bump behind her right ear. Then on September 9, 2004, she quietly passed away, laying on her favorite towel on the couch. She was buried in a handmade coffin lined with red velvet with her name on the front of it. I still miss her so much. I didn't have time to grieve for her, because I was taking care of my father who was also dying of a brain tumor. Rest in peace Muffy. You were truly one of a kind. God truly blessed me when he gave me 6 years to be your Mommy! Muffy was 20 1/2 years old when she died.
Valencat's Day was an enjoyable, romantic holiday this year thanks to my fur husband Buddy. He is the apple of my eyes. Furst, he awakened me with a home cooked breakfast...all of my favorites. After brekkie, we went to the spa, where we were each pampurred by the attendants there. We had efurry treatment available, and were massaged for an hour. We left there refreshed and rejuvenated. We felt like a million bucks!
Then we walked down the boardwalk, shopping at several of the shops along the way. We ate lunch at one of the restaurants specializing in seafood. OMC, it was wonderpurr! Buddy and I ate like little piggies.
Then we headed back home. While there, I packed us a basket full of goodies for a midnight cruise on Buddy's sail boat. I packed all of our favorite foods and dessert for our voyage.
Before we knew it, we were at the Marina, making our boat ready to sail. Buddy is an expert sailor. He navigated our way around the ofur boats in the Marina, and headed out toward our favorite cove. It was a beautifur day for sailing...the weather was purrfect. We reached our favorite cove in about an hour. The sun was just setting on the horizon. The sunset was gorgeous, and we took several photographs of it.
I went below deck and gathered efurrything neccessary for our picnic for two. I set out our favorite foods and drink while Buddy lit candles all around us on the deck. We ate by candle light, and it was so romantic. We took turns feeding each ofur and telling each ofur what we loved about each ofur. After we finished eating our food, we began to dance to the music on the radio. Buddy is the best dancer I have efur seen. He lifted me off my paws, swirled me around, and dipped me in his strong arms...he is truly a sight to behold.
We were ready for a breather, so we sat down and snuggled togefur on the deck on some huge pillows. We exchanged Valencat's gifts, and sipped catpagne. Buddy gave me a Diamond Heart Necklace...it was breathtaking! MOL!!! I couldn't wait to put it on. Buddy placed it around my neck, and fastened the clasp. I ran to the bedroom and glanced in the mirror...I was speechless! It was gorgeous! After I thanked my fur husband properly, I noticed that it was almost midnight. We toasted each ofur with our catpagne as the clock turned to midnight. What a magical evening under the moonlight...all thanks to my darling Buddy!
This is my seventh year at the Bridge. Life here is wonderpurr. I have my loving fur husband Buddie, and my son Blue to keep me busy. We live in a Victorian house at the water's edge in the Heavenly Keys Subdivision, and I couldn't be happier.
During the week I keep busy with shopping trips to the Mall with my furiend Mitzi Treasure Bird. We have a blast scurrying from store to store, looking for must-have items. We shop til we drop! After our paws get worn out from shopping, we go to the Food Court and eat like little piggies. We order our favorite entrees, then top that off with a healthy portion of dessert. After our tummies are full, we either go to the gym to work off the extra calories, or the Beauty Pawlor to get dolled up. We want to look good for our fur men, so these two businesses are a must!
On Friday nights I go to "Hammock Talk" at the Over The Rainbow Group. I let my meowmy type for me at this forum. I meet my furiends Autumn, Abby, Taz, Cisco Kid, Bill (Mr. Prez), and Snipper there, and we meow and bark about our lives, our pawrents lives, and life at the bridge. We listen and offer comfort and purrayer to those that are hurting. I look forward to seeing my pals, so I try and go efurry week.
Weekends are a time for family. Buddie, Blue, and I usually do a day trip somewhere togefur, but this weekend is different. Blue has been invited ofur to Autumn and Gato's house for the weekend. Their son Squeak invited Blue to come ofur and purrlay, so of course Buddie and I said "Okay." Autumn is like a sisfur to me. Blue calls them his Aunty Auty and Uncle Gato. Blue is really excited about his weekend stayofur. He is going to ride his bicycle and meet Squeak at the Hammock after school lets out. Then they will ride their bikes back ofur to Autumn and Gato's house fur the weekend. Buddie and I usually do family things on the weekend. This weekend we will have to purrlan something a little more "Romantic" to do. Yes, I AM really looking forward to this weekend!
Have a good one!
