Arrival Story:
Harley is the daughter of a "shop" cat who was living in a culvert before she came home to me. She was still very young and very scared but took to being in a house very quickly. She accepted me as her mommy as well as sleeping with me and having regular meals in a very short time. In no time at all she was Queen of the house. She quickly grew into a very large cat and regally ruled the house and still does.

Harley is a very special cat with a huge personality. We like to call her The Queen. She purrs like a Harley motorcycle engine - thus her name. She had that purr from the time she was tiny. All you have to do is talk to her and she purrs - a very happy gal! Most of the time - she is getting a little grumpier in her advancing years! Especially towards the dogs - Sparky, Tucker, Molly and pretty soon Katie will come home. She doesn't seem to mind Molly as much as the boys who love to bark at her and chase her. She can't seem to help running from them. She is way bigger than they are and could really put them in there place if she chose to, but so far she hasn't done it. She would prefer to be the only pet and really doesn't socialize with the pups or with Tony before he went to the Rainbow Bridge. She pretty much does as she pleases and loves to be outside. She never goes to far from the backyard where her favorite spots are definately hers. She has all the best spots indoors too - the kitchen table, the desk in the den complete with a bed out of doggy reach, and any chair that she can tuck herself into that is warm and cozy! She would love to sit on any windowsill in the house, but is limited to the front window where she can keep an eye on the neighborhood. She is a wonderful cat and I hope she is with us for a very long time.

Lives Remaining:
9 of 9

Saying Goodbye

Today my sweet Harley went to the Rainbow Bridge to be with her brothers Jake and Tony. This was such a hard decision to make to let her go. She turns 15 this summer, so she has had a very long life.

For the past two weeks, she wouldn't eat anything but a little Tuna fish. No kibbles at all. She was losing weight quickly. Her arthritis was bothering her a lot and her front leg was not working properly either. Metacam helped with the discomfort of the arthritis, but no appetite was not a good thing.

So I decided to let her go peacefully this afternoon. As much as it hurt, I know in my heart it was the right thing to do for this wonderful kitty who'd been a part of my life for the last 15 years through good and bad times. I am going to miss her very much.

Harley - lay in the sun and chase butterflies my girl. I know Jake and Tony will be there to meet you and show you the best spots. I love you, Harley Queen.

Well I've just about got this place dialed in... Kinda cool, when I lay on the balcony, the cars going in the driveway go right under me.. At 1st I thought "No Way"... But now it seems kinda cool, I feel like I'm stalken em... Gotta couple neighbor cats, they don't say much but they seem friendly. Yeah, I kinda like it here. The old boy talks to me, gives me treats & plays up to my morning tuna ritual. Here's a couple pics for ya, one of em has me eatin grass from the planter. (Thanks by the way)
Hope you're well, Tell Sparks, Kate & Molly I said "Hi" & tell that damn Tucker ta kiss my a****. (Jes kiddin)

Love Harley


It's my 11th Birthday

Well, it may not be my actual birthday, but it's the date we have chosen to celebrate my birth.
Life is good up here with my dad. I am learning that I can run the house. I take over all his papers, sit on the table, paw at his plate and convince him that I need part of his chicken! He does BBQ some excellent chicken breast. But those brussel sprouts on his plate - well they were fun to paw at, but I didn't actually want to eat any of them.
So I might be getting older, but being the only pet in the house is making me act young again.
So happy Birthday to me! It's going to be a good year!
