Arrival Story: Well my mothers friend worked at a gas staion at the time and one day she heard this crying out in the field by the station. She thought it was a baby so she went to check it out and found a little shoe box mewing. She opend the box ( wich had no air holes!) and in the box was a very little grey kitten her eyes a little bit open (she wasn't even weaned from her mother's milk yet!) so my mother's friend brought the kitten into the station she put her in a warm towel and gave her some milk and set a stuffed toy mouse (her baby that she LOVES) in with her. The lady called my mom and told her about the baby, because she knew my mother was a pro at raising kittens because she raised Emma & her 7 siblings when thier mother (who was a stray) got sick. So my mother picked up the little fuz ball, and planned on giving it to her friend (another friend LOL) when the kitten was old enough. But my mother fell in love with the sweetheart and Moo has been here every since.
Bio: Maggie has a old small fuzzy mouse stuffie that we call her "baby" Moo got it from the ladies who found her in a field she has had it ever since. She loves that little mouse, she will carry it around and snuggle with it, groom it, and talk to it she will just meow meow meow for hours with her "baby".
Maggie also love to lick her paw especially when she is happy. She is 16 but still sucks her paw like she is a wee little kitten. She is also a snuggle muffin, loves to snuggle! But mostly with her family she gets very scared of strangers.
Maggie got her name from the simpsons, because she sucks her paw so much and so hard it sounds like the baby on the show, Maggie (the little baby who is always sucking on a binky).
On July 21st,2008 at 5:30pm we made the very hard choice to put our dear Maggie Moo to sleep.She was 16, and had a very good life. She had not eaten for a week and had a very bad liver infection and was doing very bad.She spent the entire day outside enjoying her time sunbathing,eating grass,and getting loved on by her adoring family. She was surrounded by those who loved her the most when she traveled to the bridge.
Dates, Goals & Honors To Remember: My brithday is: April 1st,1992 I joined catster: July 30,2006 Catster Honors: Diary of the day on 11-14-07. Daily diary pick on May 07. I was cat of the day on 2/23/08. I was All Fur Funs (AFF)'s cat of the day on 10/13/07 Other:
I was Calvin's furiend of the week starting July 19,2008! My last visit to the vet man's office was on July 18,2008 to get fluids & get antibiotics. My last trip outside was: all day July 21, 2008.
As many of you have heard there has been some awful storms recently, many producing devastating tornadoes like the one in Joplin MO. For most of this year we haven't gotten much of these storms, but I think mother nature may be making up for lost time! My family has gotten several storms recently and today was really scary! When my furless got home she was greeted with blarring sirens, heavy rain & intense news coverage giving out tornado warnings all around KS/MO. Many of which surround were my family lives & our area was under a warning for a while. A few did touch down, but luckily it just missed PV! My peeps (and all 4 pets) did take coverage in the basement for a little bit until getting the all clear. It was extra scary because the youngest was still in school at the time, and she is not a fan of storms at all so hopefully she didn't get to upset.
My peep's work also had a close call, at about the same time. Mom & dad were home for lunch but Christy, Dennis (feral friend) & a few other employees were there but they all huddled in the basement for a bit until it cleared up. Christy did say that as soon as the sirens went off that Dennis was super spooked & took off. He ended up hiding in an old favorite spot of his, behind a file cabinet. They weren't able to get him out & didn't want to freak him out even more so they did leave him there but if the warning was any worse they would have made sure he was down with them. But the peeps have decided that they are going to buy a carrier for him to keep at work, incase something like this happens again.
Speaking of Dennis, he is doing great! Such a fun & friendly boy, well unless it's Monday. He hates Mondays! Every Monday morning when Christy gets there first he will go up to her to say hello & get some attention like he does every morning but instead of headbonking he will bite her! He does the same with mom as well and it is only on Monday mornings. He must be grumpy that he is left alone for most of the weekend, & is trying to get some payback. Sometimes dad will go in on Saturday for a little but he is always by himself on Sundays (he does have food/water dishes that refill automatically though).
So once again it has been way to long since I last posted a new diary entry! The furless always plans on getting on and posting something new but something always comes up! Her time has been even more limited now, because recently she got a job at a local animal clinic every Friday night after she gets home from getting her edumacation & every other weekend. And her time is going to be even more limited with finals coming up! So I just wanted to do a quick update before things get even more chaotic.
First off I would like to thank all of my wonderful friends for helping me celebrate my 19th birthday on April 1st! I want to send a special few thank you shout outs to: Big Harry & Family for a sweet heart rosette! Simone & gang for my pretty tulip rosette! My cute little norwegians for my lovely rainbow rosette! Angel Alexander & family for my pretty tulip rosette! Alex,Annie & Bugsy! for my lovely rainbow rosette!
As well as my darling birthday twin Milo for my beautiful flower special gift and all of my wonderful pals who sent me special b-day messages! It really meant a lot, thank you all!
Also thought I should update you on work kitty! As I told you before he sure did get in quite the pickle! Turns out his hiding place after the accident was in the wall under the sink & since he only came out when everyone left we had to leave it open so he kept going back in there. But almost a week after all this happened mom saw him sneaking around during the day & quickly closed the doors to under the sink. He wasn't to happy about this at first & would not let anyone touch him but after about 2 days he remembered how much he loves to be the center of attention and he is back to his usual loving self. He is really making himself at home and it is clear that this boy is not going anywhere! He has come so far, and barely ever hides. He loves to be pet, brushed & even though he wasn't sure about them at first he is really getting into toys! Especially the ones that squeak, he just loves them! And he finally has a name! Everyone agreed on it a few weeks after he started coming back out again. What is his name? Dennis the Menace!
Well it sure has been too long. I keep trying to update my diary but every time the entry doesn't save! So hopefully this one will work. I have alot to update you on our feral friend.
He has been getting a lot better. He is actually friendly & sweet! The peeps got him to the point now where he doesn't hide but runs to them and likes to be brushed, pet & held! Its amazing. He is a bit of a talker too, but only if you talk to him. If one of my people says something to him like "How are you doing kitty?" he will respond with "Meow. Meow." It doesn't matter what you ask he will talk back to you in the sweetest way. It has taken a lot of time & effort but our buddy has come a long way. He likes to be talked to in baby talk, loves fresh water, toy mice and being scratched behind the ears. That all being said this week has not been his best and we have run into a big road block.
Yesterday morning my pops come into work to quite a surprise. As I have told you before my rents own their own lawn & garden business, and their work building is pretty small just one story with a basement used for storage. For several months now kitty has had the run of the building & has done well with it and is really active at night & likes playing he toys. Earlier this week something spooked him & he has started to go back to his original behaviors. And yesterday morning didn't help. When my human walked in he was welcome with half the office flooded with water, he scattered to try and figure out where it was coming from and found the source & what had happened. Someone left the cabinet under the sink opened in the kitchen the evening before & kitty ran in there after everyone left. He began moving around & trying to hide more and even though he is little guy he somehow managed to knock one of the pipes out of place which led to the office being flooded. Poor guy was frantic by now & found a new hiding spot. In the wall! We have no idea how he got there & actually for a good part of that day everyone thought he somehow got loose because they couldn't find him. But then they heard some faint mews close by. It was such an awful day. The sounds of all the fans & such spooked kitty even more & to matters even worse the shop vac the peeps were using caught on fire! OMC! Luckily no one was hurt. And we do know kitty can get out of his odd hiding place because morning we food eaten, water drank & poop left in the litter box. Everyone is just so worried about im & are afraid he might be hurt. So please if you can purrr for him.
We will keep you updated & sorry for the long post. Just so much to meow about!
