Arrival Story:
Chester and his siblings were part of a larger feral colony, born in someone's front yard. They were taken to the House of Mews no-kill feline shelter because they were part Siamese. But it was quickly discovered that they were all very ill with worms, intestinal diseases, upper respiratory viruses. So we became their 24 hr nursing staff... After a few months of love and numerous medications, the remaining five kitten survivors were all brought back to the shelter and found homes very quickly. Chester was one of the first to be adopted. But about four months later, we saw a familiar face in one of the "new" arrival cages. Chester chirped and rolled over, pawing at the cage bars, and purring to see us. I took him home with me for good after that. Despite his weak stomach and immune system, he is a very happy little person.

Bio:
Due to Chester's numerous kitten-hood illnesses, his growth has been slow. At his first birthday, he was still only the size of a 5 month old kitten. He remains a delicate creature, preferring licking and cuddling to wrestling and running games. He loves his two siblings and any human he meets. He likes to play in the clay house because it echoes his purr even louder. It's rare to not hear him purring. He purrs in his sleep. * *June 21, 2005-Oct. 4, 2006 * *

My Tail of Devotion for Chester

My tiny Chester button,

you spent the night again curled up against my side, using my arm as a pillow. You purred so loudly, you woke me up several times. Thats just one of those million little habits of yours that I adore...

I've spent so much of the last year as your mother nurse, I can hardly remember a time when my playful kitten who decided to live in a halloween pumkin wasn't on some sort of medication.

So when two weeks ago, you were diagnosed again, I was over joyed that you might finally be getting the medicine that would cure all of this string of illness! I day dreamed of you healthy and happy, playing with your brothers and rolling in the sunlight...

But instead I'm watching you get thinner and weaker day by day. I'm sorry to wake you every few hours just to force food and water on you. I'm sorry to pill you twice a day... But when we're so close to being cured, my Chester Lester, let's keep strong and not give in! You keep purring and cuddling, and we'll make it through.

Time for another feeding...

********************************************** **********************
UPDATE: around 6:20 pm, Oct 4, 2006. Chester left us tonight. He was purring and without pain until about 3:30 pm today. He seized three times, the last time just didn't stop. He died with his Mom, Dad, and favorite vet nurse by his side. He spent his last moments purring, even through the valium... We loved you very much and will miss you.
