   Leave a treat for Navar

Mom's new nickname for me is Bugaboo...don't ask!! Toothpick-Mom used tocall me this, because I had lost 10 pounds from my Diabetes. Blackie, when I was born, just because I am a black cat.

Navar loves getting affection and being held close

not getting affection when he wants and when Maya nips his ears or tail.

Favorite Toy:
These days Navar is not into toys

Favorite Nap Spot:
On top of Maya's kennel, in the living room..has a clear view out the large window...all set with a blanket too!!

Favorite Food:
Navar has various tastes and eats most foods...he loves my french vanilla yogurt, but too much sugar for his diabetes!!

Navar has become good at remving the rubber tubing that holds the screen in place on the screen door, so that he can access the window and come into the house...perhaps a MEOW would do!!!


Arrival Story:
My older sister has a cat and the place where she lived, at the time, didn't allow cats, so I took her cat in temporarily, until she found a new place to live. Her cat, Crystal, came to me pregnant and the babies were born in my bedroom, Navar is just one of the 8 babies born in that litter. I also have one of his brothers from that litter, named Willow.

Navar and his brother Willow had been together since the day they were born. They had 8 friends in the house, Ahmadeyos, a Degu, which they love to play tag and hide and seek with. The Degus have started a new family of their own and now have an extended family to add to our family. Ahmadeyos is the father of the others and Milana and Rosebud are the mothers. Then there are Piper, Isabel, Jezebel, Pieta and Senza, but I really can't tell the difference between most of them. NAVAR'S WORDS: I was born with a hernia and Mom had to have the vet perform a hernia surgery on me, so that I could live a long, happy, healthy life. The surgery was like getting a tummy tuck on my belly, before I even got a belly. Everyone thinks I look like a black panther. My grandma likes me better then my brother, because she thinks I am smarter and not a spoiled brat, like Willow. November 2007, Mom was taking a 3 week vacation to Paris, but before she left, I got sick and lost lots of weight. Mom held me and cried, she was so worried. I had to spend the day at the vet and get all sorts of tests, but the doctor found out that I have Diabetes. Mom had to learn how to give me insulin injections and I have to go in to see the doctor, on a regular basis, for glucose testing. I really hate getting all those needles, from the doctor, but I don't mind when Mom or Grandma do it, because they are good to me. Grandma babysat me, when Mom was gone and took really good care of me and Willow, that made Mom really happy, because she was so worried about me. Mom really loves me, more than I realized. These days, I have started asking mom for my insulin shot, mom thinks maybe I know it makes me feel better. My appetite has improved and mom can't keep up with all the food I want to eat.

Mom went away on vacation to visit aunty Cass and her cats in Italy, but unfortunately grandma got sick and had to go to the hospital and is now there for a long time and she was to take care of me and Willow while mom was away, so aunty Sylvia took me home with her, because I need insulin twice a day, but now I am so stressed, even though I am getting lots of love, that I don't feel up to eating and mom is worrying about me everyday she is gone and wishes she could come home to me, even though she is having a nice visit it Italy. I look so forward to her return, because I want to go home soooo badly...I miss Willow and he is at home all alone, with no one to care for him, feed him, give him water or clean his litter box....Mom doesn't know what to do. Aunty Sylvia doesn't want to go there often, because it is on the other side of the city but Willow has been alone and uncared for for 4 days and this has mom freaked out...she is ready to pay for a plane ticket home sooner, but doesn't have the money to do that and has to wait out the week for her vacation to end. It has been a rough 10 days for me and Willow and I can't wait for my mommy to come home to me!!!!

Ha!Ha! for Halloween yesterday mom dressed as a black cat, just like me. Willow is such a winer about it too, that he took my favorite sleeping spot. Mom keeps telling him to get out and moves him, but he refuses to listen. He is so jealous of me.
