Ask Arnold

I'm exhausted!

As many of you know, I have been having a hard time learning to fly. I have made so many crash landings that I was assigned a guard so I wouldn't get hurt.

But it wasn't entirely my fault, because I have been VERY busy watching out for my Mom. She has been so sad and she even felt guilty for a while. (That was dumb! No Mom could ever have taken better care of their furkid than she did of me.)

But I also have been trying HARD to help find my successor for Mom. She needs a kitty to make her happy. So I have been looking ALL over Texas for kittens. I've looked at shelters and pet stores and a sanctuary. But there weren't any PERFECT kitties for Mom.

Two weeks ago, she was at the local shelter and a little girl kitty claimed her lap. She was not interested in a girl kitty, but this girl was very sweet and had a really strong purrer. But Mom said no, she wanted orange boys.

So Mom came back the next Saturday and that same kitty claimed her lap again. There were also some orange boys, but they weren't ready to be adopted yet. Last Wednesday, Mom left work early to race to the shelter and get that girl kitty and one of the orange boys.

But the shelter worker, a lady named Susan, said: "We just got a litter of orange boys in!". Those orange boys were all still in a cage with their bio-Mom. Mom looked at all four of them, and they were identical! But she really liked one better than the others. So she told the worker she wanted that one and they put a blue necklace on him.

Mom worried about bringing a 7 month old girl kitty and the baby boy into the house together. She thought they might not get along, but she said she would pick them up on Saturday and keep them in separate rooms. When she got there, the kitten was in a bed with the girl kitty!

So Mom now has TWO kitties! The girl is named Helen and the little orange boy is Roger. Getting them to lay in the same bed together was a stroke of genius on my part, don't you think? BOY, am I a tired angel.

But you know, my flying was better today. I think I had the weight of the world on my shoulders, and now I can fly free! Welcome home, Helen and Roger! You have the best Mom in the whole world. I know, because she was MY Mom!

Arnold, there is no other kitty like you so it makes sense that not one but TWO kitties need to fill your pawprints. I think your mom has enough room in her heart for both Roger and Helen.

You make a lot of sense about being able to fly better now that your mom has found kitties to keep her company. I'm sure you worried a lot about finding someone to keep your mom from being lonely. That's a tall order for any angel to fill. We have to give you two paws up because you did a great job! Now that you're an ace flier, we'll expect a fly by...

Arnold, when you can do magic like getting those 2 kitties together with your Mom (and getting them to sleep in a bed together) who needs to fly? Seriously, you have all the time in the world to perfect your flying and landing. You've been up to some big-time important stuff.

What a great story Arnold! And what a great job you've done!!! You weren't even really finished with the bridge orientation, but you had bigger responsibilities didn't you? :-) Now that you've found your meowmy two little earth fursibs, I guess you can learn how to work those wings now, huh? Look forward to seeing what new stunts you can pull off with those wings! ;-) Loves, Alexis & FAM

You are such a hard working angel Arnie. And your mom must be so proud of you. She gave 2 sweet kittens a chance at a wonderful life.

Lots of hugs to you and your momma. I think you will find flying a little easier now!
