Arrival Story:
When I went to work the Monday following the 2003 Kentucky Derby my boss, the Clinic vet, brought in a newborn kitten from a weekend rescue. He was only about 10 days old & needed to be bottle fed. I volunteered to take him on, keeping him with me 24/7. Over the 4th of July weekend I returned him to the Clinic for adoption & I went out of town. When I returned home, Derby was waiting on the dining room table (in his carrier) for me. It seems the Clinic filled with boarders so they called Daddy to come get Derby. That's the story Dad gave. I think Dad just missed the little guy too much. Anyway, H.K. Derby is just what our family needed!!

Since he was a bottle baby he was with me all the time. Including one weekend drive where we had to dodge tornadoes & ended up sitting on the side of the road & watching one go over head. Derby was a great traveler. Now that he's older he prefers to stay home & play with his brothers, chase his sister & find new mischief to cause. UPDATE: Sunday, November 2, 2014 Derby journeyed to the Bridge. He was being loved by his Mama. Derby, the Babiest of Babies, knew his family's love from amost his first breath H.K. Derby leaves a very large emptiness in our home. Have fun reuniting with OWP & Baxter Baxter Boy --the Derby Bruvvers are together again. I find comfort in that.

A Quick Goodbye

When I got up Sunday morning (Nov 2, 2014) I had many plans for a lazy Sunday. I didn't feel furry good so I let Dad know. He told Mama. I kept feeling worse & worse. After awhile I felt so bad I couldn't do anything. I went to the living room where Mama was & I sat in the corner. Mama said, "Derby, I can't see you there. Come out here so I can see you."

AND I DID!!! (I heard Mama say it was the first time I ever did anything she told me to). I walked to the center of the room & that used all my energy. I lay down on the floor. Mama came & sat by me. Purrty soon she picked me up & held me. That felt so nice. And oh so quickly I was at the Bridge and there were my bruvvers, OWP & ROY BAXTER Baxter Boy.

It was such joy to see them again. We are spending great time getting caught up. I can finally breathe again without pain or struggle. I miss my Mama and really miss my Daddy yet it's so nice to feel good again.

Ok....gotta go........
