My handsome tuxedo Dreamboat #70 is a 17 year old gentlecat from Michigan. Meet Gump!
Gump is quite dashing in his formal fur of white paws, bib, and adorable white markings on his face - you know I'm a sucker for those face markings! I also think Gump has the palest pink nose of any cat I've ever seen - isn't it beautiful? Gump is very floofy, and I like the white stripe near the end of his tail.
Like so many of us, Gump was a stray that was rescued as a little kitten. He is another earlobe licker which I find endearing. Gump developed diabetes later in his life, and was on daily insulin shots. And then, he went into remission and no longer needs his shots, but his Mom checks his numbers weekly. Being an older kitty, Gump has had some problems with his pancreas and kidneys, but his Mom is a good nurse! I'm impressed that Gump is important enough that his vet comes to him - now that is the way it should be!
Besides being loving, gentle, and affectionate, Gump is one brave boy who doesn't mind the cold - as long as he is wearing his awesome red coat!
Congratulations, Gump, on being Dreamboat #70!
I don't have a dreamboat-in-training for you today, but I have two pawsome angel dreamboats!
Angel Dreamboat #25 journeyed to the bridge at the young age of 4. Meet Mr. Fez! Mr. Fez was a very handsome gray mancat with just a tiny bit of white on his chest. I particularly like his super dark nose and gorgeous eyes. Speaking of his eyes, Mr. Fez developed very rare juvenile cataracts in both eye as a kitten. Despite having some trouble seeing, Mr. Fez didn't let that hold him back. We all know that kitties can lead a pawsome life even if they are totally blind.
I'm always in awe of cats who are brave around the big fat guy in the red suit. Mr. Fez was a wonderful brother who loved cuddling with his siblings. This makes my heart happy! Mr. Fez was also a worldly cat who checked out his neighborhood in his stroller.
His journey to the bridge story is a sad one - after that stupid Crystal chick visited him, he was put on diazepam medicine. Unfortunately, he had a very rare reaction to the medicine and it put him into acute liver failure. While I dislike hearing things like this, I know his story might help other kitties in the future - one reason we love Catster so much - the sharing of our stories keeps us informed about so many health issues that we wouldn't know otherwise.
Be sure to stop by and become friends with Mr. Fez. Congratulations on being my Angel Dreamboat #25!
My adorable Dreamboat #26 just got a secret admirer, and one look at this cutie, and you won't be surprised! Meet Pete! Pete and his sister, Jennifer, were adopted as little kittens. They were the first cats for his Mom, so he had to teach her all about owning a cat! He was always very close to his sister - something boycats in my family should notice!
Pete was an adorable kitten who was very affectionate with his Mom, and only preferred her! Pete had the perfect white bib, and when I saw this picture of Pete, I thought he looked a little like me!
Like many of my dreamboats, Pete supervised what came in and out of the refrigerator! He was not a fussy or demanding cat - a very important dreamboat trait! Pete has been an angel since 1993, so I know he has important jobs at the bridge teaching all the new angels.
Congratulations, Pete, on being Angel Dreamboat #26! I think you'll gain a few more secret admirers!
