Arrival Story:
While driving near Galena, Ill. I heard an announcement on "Tradio" for part Siamese kittens. The house happened to be 1 mile to the right so I made a quick turn and pulled in to the driveway. The mother cat was mostly Siamese, the kittens all colors. I picked out two white kittens that were running wild in the yard. The owner had to grab them from under the bushes. They were playing in the dirt. I put them in the car and drove them around all day on sales calls. When we got to the house, my 3 sons had a ball playing with them. Unfortunately the brother kitten was run over by a tractor where they were building a house. We buried him in our yard. His sister "Sis" is still with us and doing fine. She is a talker and understands conversation very well. She dips her paw in water to drink and will also use her paw for eating food, she will pick it right up like a cupped hand.

Sis had eye surgery for turned under lashes that were causing irritation. Her eyes were never very pretty, but heavy lidded and slightly crossed. The eyes wiggle back and forth. She developed an infection in both eyes some years ago, that would never go away with all the antibiotics that were given. She does not see well anymore but it has never kept her from being an excellent mouser. The neighbors always appreciated her walking through their garages looking for mice, and bringing them home to feast on. I thought she might need a pal and brought home a Himalayan some years ago. She mothered that kitten like it was hers though she never had a litter of her own. That kitten was kicked by a school boy and became very mean, tormenting Sis until I found a new home for her with my friend Christine. It was a true love match for them both and they are both happy with all the attention each of them needs and wants. I do miss my Himalayan, and am going to post a story about her anyway. She is really beautiful and has an interesting story. Sis is semi retired now that we brought her to the city. It took her a while to get used to, but now she goes outside, likes to sit on the deck rail and look at the dogs next door. Not much hunting here but would be interesting to see what she does with a city rat.

Sis, I miss
your lovely presence
and companionship.

You were never replaced
nor forgotten

Time fades memories
but can not erase
especially when it comes
to affection and caring
for a best friend.


Going on 4 years already

Now it has been 4 years with no Sis.

Can't say I mind not having the responsibility of pets for the first time in my life, and not being home often enough would be hard on a single cat in the house. That means I would have to have 2 cats to keep each other company.

I am even thinking the possibility of a dog. But I'm really a cat person! But, a dog... Then I would have to join And then I would still have to find a kitten to be pals with the dog, and there fills up the house with pets again.

Not ready yet.

But I still miss Sis quite a lot and am looking forward to visiting with the sparrow that has come to my window every spring since Sis. It follows me around and always nests in the same birdhouse every year.


It's been 3 years already?!

Sis has been gone almost 3 years already. It doesn't get easier missing a pet who has been part of a family for so long.

I haven't felt like getting a new kitten - at all. Used to be once, that I could not live without a cat or two in the house. Maybe that will change one of these days. There were times I was resentful that an outside animal would be so comfortable in a house that I was cleaning and keeping up after while they could just come and go. I hated having a litter box with all the mess that entails. When others in the house would complain to me that the shit box stunk - it was always my duty, because she was my cat. Of course, why not. I always took good care of every cat I ever had and got blamed for everything they did.

When Sis was young and lived outside full time, we didn't have one in the house - she used the dirt. When she was older and could not see, and had poor health I had to have one inside. She was in most of the time then, but for taking walks with me in our own yard. She stayed close to me during those walks and if she couldn't see me, she would sit and wait until I came back for her. She had never been a lap cat but her last 6 or more months, she painfully pulled herself up on my lap and sat there with her eyes closed.

Sometimes I miss her terribly. Other times I am happy not to have so much responsibility, and do enjoy being alone - though my husband lives here of course, he just isn't cat like enough.
