Arrival Story:
I found her in a humane society foster home.

Boomer lived in Illinois and California before spending the last 10 years of her life in Hawaii. When she found out we were moving back to the Mainland, she died. She was 23.5 years old and is buried in Hawaii. The second picture to the left was taken on 2-19-96. I had worried since she was about 16 that I would make her live too long because letting her go would be so hard. She had been winding down for about a week, but was clearly not in pain. I had the vet coming the next day at 11 AM to put her to sleep, but she died in my arms at 2 AM. It turned out I had pretty good instincts. I had guessed the right day, but had the time wrong. She had her own way for 23.5 years, including the last day. She was the Queen! I still miss her. Boomer was a Daily Diary Pick for 2-25-2009! Thanks, HQ!

My 38th Birthday!

I am overwhelmed by the kindness you all showed me on the 38th anniversary of my birth, on Saturday. I receved numerous gifts and notes and I read ever one of them.

The one thing that all this reminds me of is this: Catster has fleas and is scaring us to death because they are mixing up diaries so we think our pals have bad health when they really don't. And Catster is telling us who comments on what and we don't care.

BUT, Catster is also how we all "met" each other, and for me, Catster came along about 10 years after I had gone to the Bridge. So I am still relevant to you, because my Mom has told you about me and you all know what a sweetie I was. And that's because of Catster.

SO, as frustrating and nonresponsive to our needs that Catster seems to be right now, we will always love the Catster we ran across 5 years ago. And we will always treasure all our Catster pals.

Thank you again for all the love we receive daily from you all.


37 years

I was born 37 years ago today. I came to live with my Mom when I was 3 months old. She had never had a kitty before. She took good care of me, and we traveled together and had a ball.

I especially loved it when we moved to Hawaii. It was always warm there, and I never got a chill like I did in Illinois and California.

When Mom said we were gonna move back to the Mainland, I decided to stay in Hawaii. So I left for the Rainbow Bridge, and my little body stayed in Hawaii forever.

I was with Mom 23.5 years, and I am sure glad I found her! Mom was even more lucky to find me!

Are girls supposed to admit that they're 37?
