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.

Bio:
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.

Sissy's Stories


We Might Look for a Kitten

Well, I lost track of how many years it has been since Sis is gone. I still miss her so much! Even the neighbors miss her coming by. Sweet presence is what I miss most.

Now, we have Thor. He will be getting his own page on Dogster.com pretty soon, since we have decided to keep him. It has been too long since I had a pup! Forgot how much work and how much fun they are that first year or so. Kittens know the rules, you know? Show them the litter box and that is the end of it. Let them outside once in a while and they are happy chewing on grass. They are gentle creatures.

Thor is another story altogether! Jumps onto our bodies like we are part of the furniture. Plays rough. Don't pick him up - he hates it. I had visited my son in Clearwater, Florida last spring and he placed the tiniest little puppy in my lap. Mama is a full size Chihuahua and dad is a Dachshund. It was a total accident and Mama was spayed after this litter. He told me these dogs are called "Chiweenie"s. I thought well, never liked Chihuahua dogs OR Dachshunds. Maybe this one would cure me of that?

Neil told me, "Mom, I named him Thor" (for a yellow lab named Thor, the farm dog who was hit by a car on the road the previous winter) "He goes off by himself while the other 3 puppies play"

So, I rented a car and drove back to Wisconsin with tiny little Thor on my lap.

The little guy was a wiggly handful and peed and poo'd constantly. Acted like he was starving all the time and during the 3 day ride home I picked 17 fleas off his body. Threw them out the window... When we got home I had to cover the furniture, put away anything good and pull up all the rugs. Would NOT have had to do such a thing for a kitten!

Now, over a year later, he has matured and communicates very well. Understands many words, especially "treat".

So now, I think he needs a pal. Like a kitten he can curl up with and lick and love as his own little pet and companion. I am not out there looking. But, if one shows up at my door, will not complain. Hoping she is something like Sis. Sweet and affectionate. That may just complete our gang for now. Can you picture it? I can.

 

Now it is going on 8 years

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 Dogster.com 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.
