Arrival Story:
My husband and I met Bixit one fine day in 2000. He was under the care, as were several other kitties, of our friend, Robin. She had told us she had the perfect cat for us; he was a black and white neuetered male. We insisted we couldn't have a cat in our apartment. On this fine day in 2000, we bumped into Robin outside of her home which was in our neighborhood. She convinced us we should get a formal introduction to "Ditto," which was Bixit's original name. As we ascended the stairs to her place my husband insisted, " We are NOT getting a cat." At the top of the stairs was a very handsome and chubby feline. I immediately asked this cat what he thought of my husband. His response was a friendly rub up against my husband's leg. This agreeable reaction prompted my husband to declare, "We'll take him!!" and we did so on the spot.

Bixit Boseph was, and remains to this day, an indescribable friend with immeasurable value. He added a quality to our lives and our souls; he revealed to us what lies in the souls of animals. He was the first person I saw each morning and the last one I saw each night. No morning was complete without his patented Bonk-b-Gonk (head-butt) or smiff (gentle sniff of the eyelid coupled with whisker-tickles); no bedtime complete without him tucking us in. He was the most friendly of cats, EVERYBODY loved our BoBo. Nobody doubted our love for him. He loved us. He spent not a waking moment without purring. Close to a year-and-a-half before we lost BoBo, he got a little brother named Monkey Butt. This was not immediately acceptable to Bixit, but the two grew to love each other. They groomed each other frequently. My husband and I both had his paw print tattooed to our backs a couple years ago. We got them intending to memorialize them one day. We didn't think the day would come so soon. Bixit was never the picture of perfect health. He had trouble with his weight and bowel movements as well as urine crystals. Everything seemed to be under control. One day in 2006, he began to get skinny and stopped grooming. Monkey stayed away from him. His appetite had been diminishing a little, but we didn't think it was that bad. Trips to the vet revealed nothing to us about his condition. Exploratory surgery was required to determine the problem. The problem was cancer, cancer that had hidden from tests but nonetheless completely consumed our BoBo. We took him home, and Monkey did take a quiet moment to say good-bye. The doctor came to our home on April 20, 2006 and we said our "good-byes" and "I'm sorries" and "we love yous." We will never question the capacity of animals to love. We will never forget that miracles can manifest themselves in many benevolent forms. We will never see another like Bixit Boseph, though we know we'll see him again one fine day.

I have a new Earth brofur named Gabriel Gubblebum. I know I can't send every wayward kitty to my Momma and Dad, but this I knew this one would be just right for my little brothers Monkey and Smugg.

A rescue group first took in this dingy white stray for Mom and Dad, and someone was slated to adopt him! But, as fate has its way of defying will, the potential adopter backed out without even calling. My Earth family was to be Gabe's foster family, but that intention faded pretty quickly! I whispered to my brothers that I knew they were quite annoyed to have another cat in the house, but to try to be kind so he could stay. After all, it's not easy to be a little cat in this great big world, and both of them at one time needed a furever home. Neither of them lived in such a desperate situation, though. This little guy lived on the streets of downtown, probably eating bugs and maybe the occasional small animal.

I wish I could've sent my hoomans a more cuddly lap cat like I had been, as they miss that so much. At least Gabe tucks them in at night, albeit not as calmly and soothingly as I did. And he keeps his big brofurs on their little toes since he's young and playful!
