Arrival Story: My husband was coming home from work one night when he saw a bunch of dogs mauling a kitten. They were rolling him through the mud puddles, back & forth to each other. My husband got out of his vehicle, & shooed all of the dogs away. Then he got back into his vehicle. He said to the kitten, "Well, do you want to come home with me?" Instantly the kitten jumped up into the truck right on up to his lap and started to purr. When they got home, we cleaned him up. Underneath all of the mud, he was actually a brown & black tabby. I made a sign "Found Kitten" with our phone number on it, and posted it at the mail boxes at the front of our subdivision. No one ever called. We think someone had just dumped him there to fend for himself. We were SO glad that no one ever called about their missing kitten. We immediately adopted him into our family. I named him George after my grandfather who had passed away recently. At first we called him Little George, but nowadays, there is nothing little about him. In his hayday he was something to see. He had rippling muscles, and not an ounce of fat anywhere on him. Now that he is semi retired he is still in good shape. The ladies still give him double takes. He is the lovingest, mellowest cat that we have. We joke and call him Uncle George, because now that he is the oldest cat we have, he has taken every kitten we have brought home over the years, taken them under his paw, and helped to raise them. He would even hold them down & then give them a bath when he thought that they needed it. He truly is a gentle cat, and a wonderful Daddy cat. He can be a jokester at the same time too. If you don't pet him while he is on your lap, he IGNORES you. If you've ever been ignored by a cat, you know that you've been ignored.
Bio: I was minding my own business when three dogs came onto our property and began chasing E.J. and me. They bit both of us. Mom and Dad found E.J. the first day that it happened, but they couldn't find me until the next day. E.J. and I were hurt very badly. I had a spinal cord injury, a crushed hip, head wounds, deep bites to my rear legs, and infection had set in before Mom and Dad could find me. I tried very hard to stay alive, but I just couldn't stay any longer. While the Vet was working on me, I quit breathing, so they had to breathe for me artificially. When the Vet was trying to put a catheter in me, I went into convulsions and then my heart stopped. I'm sorry Mom and Dad, I didn't want to leave you this way. I am going to a better place where I can be whole again, and be with my lady love Angel. I will always be with you, and will never forget you. January 26, 2007
Hello felines! It seems that our busy summer breezed right on by, and now we are almost in Winter. I wonder, where has the time gone?
My lady-love Angel and I have been spending as much time togefur as pawsible. We recently went dancing at the Holloween Dance at the Bridge. All of the angels were there, and I must say, the costumes they wore were very good!
Angel dressed up as Scarlett O'Hara, and I of course as Rhett Butler. Angel was a vision in her purple plantation style ball gown, with her fur done up in long ringlets, sporting a diamond tiara. She took my breath away!
Angel and I danced the night away. She is a dream to dance with, furry light on her paws. We danced fast dances and slow dances alike, in fact we spent most of the night out on the dance floor. Angel was the envy of all the fur girls at the pawty, because efurry tom had his eyes on her. The men watched her efurry move. I was bursting with pride to be her date!
I cat wait to go to next year's Halloween Pawty...Angel and I are already planning what to wear! Happy Halloween felines!
Hello furlines! I have been having the bestest date this week...I couldn't be happier! Angel and I went to the City Pawk the ofur night to see Josie And The Pussycats in concert. They were purrlaying in the grand stand arena under the flood lights. Boy, were they efur fun to watch and listen to!
My beautiful girlfuriend Angel went with me. We have the most fun when we are togefur. We sat in the V.I.P. Section, right next to the elaborate stage (the stage was shaped like a feline, complete with whiskers!). Angel and I got there early, so we got excellent seats. Angel even packed us a picnic basket full of her home cooking, and I brought a thermos full of hot chocolate. We dined on Angel's famous fried chicken, potato salad, and pickled crickets. She is the best cook I know, so dinner was awesome! We ate like little piggies!
We enjoyed sitting so close to the stage. The sound was out of this world! Josie and those Pussycats are the most talented musicians I have efur heard. Angel and I were certainly glad that we took the time to come to the pawk and see them. It was a purrformance that we will remember fur a long time to come.
Angel looked incredibly gorgeous in her yellow smock with green and brown accents. I am plain CRAZY about that girl! **George grins.** I would do anything fur her!
Josie and the Pussycats purrlayed their little hearts out fur us. We even stood up in our section and danced in front of our seats to the beat of the music! They were awesome. The concert was ofur way too soon fur our taste...they could have purrlayed all night long as far as we were concerned! I heard that they were going to come back and purrlay fur the Fourth of July Celebration in a few months. I hope you can all get the chance to take in their purrformance then...
I recently read a really good poem about kitty cats going to the Rainbow Bridge written by my good furriend Tyler's Meowmie. It is such a touching ode, that I asked Tyler (Mr. Boombastic) if I could have a copy to put into my diary. He said that I could, so here goes...
I have friends who are Angels, don’t you know?
Some of them left before wanting to go,
Others knew that it was the right time
To be with God and the Angel Cat-Kind;
Some angels are new and still testing their wings
Chasing flutterbies, mouses and other cool things,
While others are mellow and sit in the shade
Of the great Rainbow Bridge that by God was made.
They wait for their owners, their earthly best friends
Their love is forever and knows no end;
When their person’s time comes, they will wait by the Light,
And welcome them home where the Rainbow glows bright.
But until then, they will play in the sun,
Chase clouds and chew flowers and run, run, run!
For sure they all miss you, their love runs deep,
But yours are the memories to treasure and keep.
It’s the Circle of Life going on you see,
So rest in the knowledge your friends are free:
Free from old age, disease, cruelty and pain,
And the Circle of Life means you’ll see them again;
So smile sweet friends, because now you know
That when your dear kitty cats Heavenward go,
They are still having fun and getting into things
All that’s different is their gossamer wings…
