   Leave a treat for Gato

Kitty Complexion:
sleepyvery active

Quick Bio:
-mixed breed

Seal-Lynx Point

My dog Taci, coming in the house, everything. He just loved everything and everyone!

None really, he was a very mellow sweet boy :)

Favorite Toy:
Taci! *giggle* And my hand, we didn't really have toys for him since he was an outside cat

Favorite Nap Spot:
On my or anybody's lap

Favorite Food:
Didn't really feed him anything besides cat food

Nope, he was just really good at snuggling :)


Arrival Story:
Well, we weren't technically his parents, he was more of a stray that hung around. But we loved him just the same, we became quite attached to his wonderful personality. He hung around our house a year or two, but now we haven't seen him in months. I only hope that he moved on to a different home or another loving family took him in, although I'm not sure how probable that would be. I miss him dearly, I pray that nothing bad happened to him.

We didn't really have an actual name for him, we each kind of called him different things. My mom called him Gato a lot (spanish for cat), and I usually just called him kitty or pretty kitty for some reason. I completely guessed on the date of birth, and the breed, since he was a stray. We're almost positive that he had Siamese in him, because of his looks and that distinctive meow. But if I'm wrong about this don't hesitate to correct me :) I figured it was also safe to assume that he was probably mixed with something else since he was stray. But anyway he just showed up at our doorstep one day, and I couldn't get over how beautiful he was. We gave him food and he hung around, so we kind of just unofficially adopted him as our own. He loved being brought into the house, and he was never afraid of our cocker spaniel Taci. They got along perfectly together and grew to love each other. I've had a lot of cats in my life, but I've never seen one quite so sweet. He had the most bubbly personality, I was surprised how cuddly he was. He had obviously been well taken care of before, he wasn't at all shy with us. He loved to be picked up and held and he would always rub his face in yours, he was so affectionate. I'm very sad that he's gone, I don't even know if he's dead or alive, but he was a fun cat while we had the pleasure of spending time with him. He will be forever missed.

Wedding Time Is Fast Approaching...

It's been a while since I updated, so here goes. Wow, a really long while, I just noticed. :) Things have been so crazy around here, with wedding plans and all. :)

Well the wedding is June 24th, and we are thrilled and very excited. The ceremony will take place in the meadow, you know, the one surrounded by weeping willow trees, by the waterfall. It's a beautiful place, you can't miss it. :) The reception will be held there as well. Any and all kitties and doggies are welcome to attend both, well anyone who is a member of the Over the Rainbow Group anyway. We will exchange rings, vows, and join as husband and wife in the Over the Rainbow Group forums. So mark your calendars, everybody! Oh yeah, the time. The times for this most special event are as follows: 1 pm Eastern, 12 pm Central, 11 pm Mountain, and 10 pm Pacific. And as for the other countries, I have no idea. *giggle*

As far as the wedding plans go, almost everything is ready. There are still a few small things to be worked out, but the bulk of our work is done. :) If you would like more details about the wedding and who's in it, just head on over to our website: Autumn and I are getting more excited by the day, and more nervous at the same time. That's to be expected though, so the positive outweighs the negative. :)

Our honeymoon location is St. Lucia in the Bahamas. It is absolutely gorgeous there. I'm sure it will be a dream for us, we'll let you know how it goes. Well, most of it anyway. ;)

So, we hope to see you all on the 24th! Gato, out.


The Happiest Day Of My Life

Yesterday...was magical. Autumn and I have been vacationing in Paris this past week, and I decided about a week ago that I was going to propose while we were there. I put a lot of thought into it, and I decided the Eiffel Tower at night would be a great, romantic spot to do it.

So yesterday night, I mustered up all my courage and tapped her on the shoulder. She turned around and stared at me with those big beautiful eyes, and further assured me that this was right. I nervously sputtered out what was on my mind, and what I was feeling at that moment. I showed her the ring, and the look on her face said it all. She accepted, tears streaming down her face and down mine, and I put the ring on. It was a perfect fit, and looked just beautiful on her. :) She has made me, I think THE happiest tom that ever lived. Seriously, I don't know if anyone has ever been or ever will be as happy as I am right now. My life is now complete, and I am at peace. :) I can't wait to tell this wonderful news to the whole world and all of Catster.

To all you kitties and pups out there, when you find love, it absolutely changes you. I know that's an overused statement, but it's true nonetheless. If you ever get the chance to feel the way we do, don't throw it away, embrace it. I know all you tough toms out there are probably thinking that I'm a sap or a wussy. *giggle* But I guarantee, if you allow yourselves to completely open up to someone the way I have, your minds will change. Trust me fellas, this is the way a real man should always feel. Period. :)

Autumn's future hubby,


Calm before the storm

Thank goodness, my mom has made it through a huge series of horrible storms. I could feel how scared she was, she didn't know if she was going to make it through the night on Saturday and Sunday.

Saturday was the worst night though, she heard that there was a tornado on the ground headed straight for her town. They issued a tornado warning and she gathered up the rest of her family and my sister Taci to get ready for it. There was so much lightning, she's never seen so much in her life. She said it looked like daytime there, lightning struck every second or two! And then they started getting big hail pounding on the roof and air conditioner, it was so loud. She said the scary part was, she watched the trees and the wind wasn't blowing at all. All this rain and hail and no wind. At that point she thought the tornado was coming for sure. It took several hours, but it finally let up a little. The tornado had somehow passed over her at the very last minute. Isn't that amazing? She says it was definitely the worst storm they've ever had besides an actual tornado that passed through when she was a little girl in grade school. At least 9 people have died in Missouri from this storm and possibly others in Wisconsin.

I'll tell ya, I was sure praying hard for her and I could hear her praying as well. I think God was definitely watching over her that night. I've just been so blessed lately, and I can add that one to the list.

Autumn is of course on top of that list, she's been the best thing to ever happen to me. Here are some song lyrics that make me think of her, it's from the song "I Don't Want to Miss A Thing" by Aerosmith:

I could stay awake just to hear you breathing
Watch you smile while you are sleeping
While you're far away and dreaming
I could spend my life in this sweet surrender
I could stay lost in this moment forever
Every moment spent with you is a moment I treasure

I don't wanna close my eyes
I don't wanna fall asleep
Cause I'd miss you, baby
And I don't wanna miss a thing
Cause even when I dream of you
The sweetest dream will never do
I'd still miss you, baby
And I don't wanna miss a thing

Lying close to you feeling your heart beating
And I'm wondering what you're dreaming
Wondering if it's me you're seeing
Then I kiss your eyes and thank God we're together
And I just wanna stay with you
In this moment forever, forever and ever

I don't wanna close my eyes
I don't wanna fall asleep
Cause I'd miss you, baby
And I don't wanna miss a thing
Cause even when I dream of you
The sweetest dream will never do
I'd still miss you, baby
And I don't wanna miss a thing

I don't wanna miss one smile
I don't wanna miss one kiss
Well, I just wanna be with you
Right here with you, just like this
I just wanna hold you close
Feel your heart so close to mine
And stay here in this moment
For all the rest of time

Her mom put a picture of her grave up on her catster page, and it's beautiful. She's lucky to have someone so loving and devoted to her. My mom wishes she had my body to bury, but she knows she doesn't really need it. I'm there with her in spirit, I'll be there to watch over her. Even though she's sad that she doesn't have something to bury, she knows the physical body is not what's important. It's just me. :)

Well this has become incredibly long, so I'd better wrap up before I take up the whole page, hehe. I just can't get over how lucky I am sometimes. :) Take care.
