Arrival Story:
had just lost my beautiful angora mix black cat from cancer and decided to call the Local Dog Pound to see if any cats had been turned in. Our Dog Pound does not keep them, they have their vet come and put them under if any are turned in. It is located at our Local Zoo. When I called they said they had one kitten they had just caught the night before and the vet was on his way to put her under with some dogs. I pleaded that they wait til I came to see her..He said mam, you will not want her, someone left her in the guinea pig pen to starve,but instead she had taken to living with the guinea pigs sleeping and eating with them. I said I would come right now so they agreed to wait.. I got there just as the vet had arrived. I walked into a dark noisy room , dogs all barking and crying, I could not make a kitten any where, I ask the man where she was and he took me to the back where she was.She was very tiny all rolled up in a ball ,like a little hedgehog...he said ,it took 5 men to catch her, and they used gloves and she bit through the gloves.. he said you will never tame her.. so I looked at this scared little kitten, she peered at me from under her paws.. I opened my carrier and said I will get her.. they warned me she was violent.. I kept talking to her, softly and quietly,, then I put my hands in slowly ,she never moved a muscle. Then I went to pick her up , I felt her stiffen in terror and I just kept talking and brought her out and held her close to my chest.. and she snuggled under my arm and gave a deep sigh.. I put her in the carrier and took her home... she stayed in our bathroom for 3 weeks. every time I went in I hugged her close. we became very good friends.. finally I said it is time for you to socialize with the rest of us.. the first day was spent under the bed but then she became close pals with our two dogs Cricket and Tia.... we named her "Bear" because we found her at the Zoo and she survived being thrown away.. she was never mean a day in her life, not one bite or a scratch, well behaved and very very kind...

The third year Bear was with me she saved my life... I was in an abusive marriage and had been a long time. This night my Ex came home and decided to choke me to death, in my fear and pain I saw my beloved Bear circling him, then I saw her jump to the top of the Curio cabinet, I cried out, I did not want her hurt, at that moment she jumped down on him and bit him very hard in his hands and he let go of me, he yelled and went for her, I grabbed her up and ran an locked ourselves in the bathroom. That was the night I changed my life for the better thanks to this wonderful little cat.. after he went out ,I packed up and Bear and I left for good.. 2 years later we met a wonderful man, and he made the last 5 years of Bear's life wonderful and mine.. I can never thank her enough, she is my love and my life. I never thought I could love another then the newspaper I was reading fell on the floor, on the page was an ad for Persians Kittens, they had one female Blue, I knew Bear chose her for me.. I got her sight unseen, MY Bluie, Azurine..... our little beauty..... Bear is always with me, and I still cry when I think of her, but that is good. it is the love we shared. Bear passed on Oct.30,2003

A Sad Month in Cat Heaven

I have been on duty for the past three days.. and I am so sad by what I see. We have had a lot of cats and kittens coming over and it breaks my heart to see. We had over 400 older cats yesterday, due to the fact that rescue centers had to make room for new kittys coming in. We had over 600 new born kittens come in.Humans letting their cats have litters that are not wanted and thoughtlessly disposing of them.We have had numerous kittens and cats that have been killed on the highways or injured and killed by predators from humans leaving thier pets to fend for theirself.. they get pets and then go away and leave them or just don't want them.. my heart is sad and heavey for these beautiful cats an kittens. The only good thing is there are here in heaven now to be free of hunger, cold and pain... we ,cats that have had a good life will take them under our wings and show them what a good human is... they can chase butteryflys and play,, and roll in the sun... I pray that all you good humans will get the word out to spay ,& neuter and teach other humans the responsibility of owning a pet... because you are the good humans.. Bear

I visited mommsie last night while her sleep.. I touched her face and she open her eyes. and said, Bear ,is that you. I have come to my mommsie before, one time I even led her to the kitchen, she could see me,, it was shortly after my passing, I wanted to let her know I was ok and say good bye....she had gotten my sis Bluie and was not crying so much.
Every now and then I come down and give he a kissy on her cheeck , cause we are soul mates and went through a lot together.
She has been thinking a lot of me lately.. so I had to come and comfort her..
When I entered their bedroom, I was overwhelmed by my mommsie smell, it made me feel alive again, so comforting,so beautiful.. I drifted to her head an just touched her cheek, with my wet nose.. she reached out and lifted the blanket up like she use to when I came to sleep with her, so I could crawl under the sheet.. and said "hi sweetie" mommsie loves you.. then she open her eyes. and knew I was no more.. only in spirit.. I loves you mommsie , your Bear cat..

My sissy Bluie is a silly kitty cat.. as much as I try to help her from the Rainbow Bridge her not get it.. I show her how to hunt a kill miceys. She chases them and sit on them and look pretty. The one she killed actually I scared it to death.. I appeared and it gave the mouse a heart attack. When I lived there,I eliminated all mices,moles and chipmonks.. I show her how to catch a bug fast , she sits and looks at them, finally one walks by and she steps on it and tries to peek at it, it crawls out between her toes. Duh"""""""
If I say did you sneak out of the house yet, her say, "what" don't the humans carry you out.. what can a older sissy in memory do.. Blue is Blonde. Bear
