Natural Mink

Sleeping on his back.

None really except not getting to eat the dog's food.

Favorite Toy:
Plays with his brother & sister, cat pedestal/tunnel.

Favorite Nap Spot:
If he has one, the dog bed(s) or on dad's bed.

Favorite Food:
Purina Indoor Cat Chow (and tuna! for treat)

He eats with his "hands". When he just wants a bite, he reached down and picks up his food with his paw and puts it in his mouth a bite at a time.

indoors and outdoors

Arrival Story:
We had adopted an adult Siamese when we lost our beloved Flame Point, and he didn't work out. So we took him back to the shelter and asked if there were any kittens with siamese in them, and the worker just reached into a cage and pulled him out. He was about 4-5 weeks old, and we fell in love with him.

His name comes from the Mexican word for Possum. He looked like a baby possum when we got him, all blue underfur and long silver guard hair, and a skinny little pencil tail held in the air and walked on his tippy toes. He was bottle fed for about 3 weeks after we got him.

Forums Motto:
Why can't I bite you?

I must be in heaven. I thought I lived in Heaven on earth. I had a huge yard with lots of trees to climb, a kitty brother and a couple of dogs to harass. Life was good. I had a mom and dad who loved me and took real good care of me since they got me out of kitty jail (the shelter) when I was just a tiny boy. But we live in central Texas, and it's been a horrible drought this past year. It's extremely dry where I used to live, no water in ponds, just dry brown grass and trees. My beautiful brother Geezer was caught by the coyotes back in October, and I knew it, so I was trying to be careful. Mom and dad tried their best to keep me in, especially at night, but I was fast, and I went out late on Valentine's night. Dad said don't worry, he'd get me back in before he went to bed, but he called and I didn't come. Next morning, mom saw it, a long thin trail of white fluff against the brown of the pasture. She knew it was me. She put on her housecoat and walked the 100 yards or so into the pasture and looked down. It was me :-( (or what was left of me....) I had been out for a stroll before breakfast, you see. That was MY pasture where I always hunted with Geezer. But the moon wasn't full and we had a cool front, so I didn't smell them until it was too late. I don't remember much. I just remember seeing my brother in the light telling me to come and play with him. He said I'd be OK and that we could hunt all we want to in Heaven, and I'd never be sick or hurt again. We even found my sister Millie. She went before both of us, and our old brother Herman is here too! So this is where I'll be waiting for Mom and Dad some day. Oh that will be so great! I sure hope they get a bigger bed, though, because we ALL liked to sleep on it! I hear anything's possible here, so I'm sure it will be OK. Well, we're off to go hunting. I sure miss my human family, but I'm glad to be with all my brothers. I even found Gizmo, my dog who came up last year. He can hear! Heaven really is HEAVEN :-)



I'm back!

Well, I was gone about 6 days! Seems I went to the neighbor's workshop where he works on old cars and decided to take a little nap - and he didn't know I was there and locked it up! Evidently, I ate a few mice and whatever I could catch to survive. Boy did I get skinny! But I seem to be OK now. How scary! There's where one of my lives went! Mee-o-o-o-ow!

Quatchie and his brother & sister have always been indoor/outdoor kitties. From the age of about 6 months, we have allowed them the freedom to go outdoors and play, and they always came when we called them to go to bed indoors. However, last Wednesday, Quatchie and Geezer and Millie all met me at the door when I drove in from work - as usual, and got a bite to eat and drink. Shortly afterward, they all wanted back out to play a bit more before dark. When we called them in for the night - he didn't respond. We have about 1- 1/2 acres of back yard and pasture, and we looked everywhere, and he hasn't shown up :-( We've looked all over. We have no idea. There are coyotes in the area behind our pasture, and there are snakes as well, so there is that possibility, but we just don't know :-( We miss you Quatchie!

Love, Mom
