Arrival Story: I purchased Aspen from the same Breeder as Jaspurr. They are brothers by 2 litters apart). My breeder notified us that she had a Male BluePoint available so we went to the Cattery to take a look at him and it was love at first sight. Aspen was soooo friendly. We named him Aspen after the blue mountains since he's a Blue.

Wow, it's been quite awhile since my visit here on Catster. After meowmy became sick last September with early stages of Breast cancer, we sort of fell behind with our pages and diaries. Actually, we were still a bit behind but her illness delayed the updates which is totally understandable. Meowmy is now doing well after having two breast biopsy surgeries, lymph node dissection (negative) and radiation treatments (SAVI 5 days, twice a day treatments). I would like to apawologize fur also missing DDP's and Birthday's that my furiends celebrated. We even missed Catmas diaries which is not like us but as we all know, things do come up with our humans. Thanks so much to all of you who have been there fur meowmy and fur sending her lovely Get Well cards, gifts, Facebook messages, posts, thoughts and prayers. That meant so much to her and your thoughtfulness is greatly appreciated by all of us and always will be...
Well, I am now officially 7 years old and I don't feel a day over three *giggles* Mom was telling me how she remembers the day she brought me home as though it was yesterday and how we had a pawsome Welcome Home pawty fur me. It's not going to be the same since my bestest furiend, Cocoa isn't here to celebrate with me but I know that he's looking down from Heaven and watching over all of us. Miss you Cocoa *wipes eyes* My beautiful family has given me 7 wonderful years and counting...
Saturday night, I received a Valentine's Day pawkage from my beautiful girl, Murphy. We decided to open it the following day since the lighting was better to take pictures. I was so excited when I discovered all of my pawsome pressies. Here is a list of the gifts that I received: a purrty pink fleece cuddle mat, 3 crocheted brown poopie catnip toys *giggles* (www.catsintheclover.com "Newman") and a cute catnip pillow. What a special girl I have and I'm super lucky that she's my Valentine, too.
Oh, fur my Birthday, Murphy sent me a PDF of the "Newman" Poopology book *giggles* Mom got a kick out of reading it to me, which we still have more pages to go. She saved in a special file on her catputer. Awwww, there she goes again, thinking of her Aspeykins.
It's also my auntie Sam and Unkie Dan's (Boogers pawrents) 9th Annifursary today. Happy Annifursary guys and many many more to come.
I would now like to thank the following kitties fur their lovely gifties & rosettes: My Family (hat), My girl, Murphy (cupcake), PorkChop & Fam (cupcake), Bubby & Fam (cupcake), My litter mate sis, lola (cupcake), Zack (heart), Zoey (lips fur my meowmy), Sky & Fam (heart) and shrimpie (Joy & Fam).
Early this morning while everyone was asleep, Cocoa made his journey into Heaven... He gave no indication that he was ready fur the Bridge the night before and it came as a big shock to all of us... Cocoa was diagnosed not too long ago with Hyperthyroidism as well as having Cardiomyopathy for 8-1/2 years. He was almost 16-1/2 years old. Cocoa and meowmy had a purrry special bond and wow, what a meowmy's boy he was. They held that special bond up until the day he made his journey.
When meowmy came down stairs this morning at 8:15 am, she didn't see Cocoa and he didn't respond when she called him. She then looked over towards the dining room and saw him laying on his side, facing the patio glass doors. She had a bad feeling because he always answers her calls but this time, he didn't. As she approached him, he did not move so she knew something was terribly wrong. She picked him up and then collapsed while holding him in her arms, The night before, her dear furiend, Marie spent the night and everything was fine. Mom was crocheting while Cocoa was sitting on the sofa with her and auntie Rea Rea and they decided to go to bed at 12:30 am. Daddy was already sleeping since he had to get up early fur work. When auntie Marie used the bathroom at 2:15 am, she saw Cocoa in the flyer and he was fine. Daddy had to get up at 3:00 am fur work and there was nothing unusual with any of the boys. Meowmy and auntie Rea Rea took Cocoa to the vet at 8:30 and Doc Wray came up from surgery to check on our situation which was purrry nice. He said that Cocoa showed no signs of struggling to breathe and that he passed away peacefully at approximately 5:30-6:00 am. He also said that it was his heart that took him. He was such a wonderful kitty and such a good boy. Heaven gained a beautiful angel today but I know that we are all feeling so much pain as well as all of his wonderful kitty furiends. Cocoa will be privately cremated and returned back home the following Wednesday.
We will Miss Cocoa purry much but he will live furever in our hearts until we all meet again. Fly free purrecious Cocoa boy! You were a wonderful brother and loved so much! He and I were the bestest of buddies and it's not going to be the same without him. I have no desire to eat and Meowmy is worried about me, not to mention that I look so sad and have been moping around. I'm lost without my friend!
Today is a purrrry special day because it's my gorgeous Murphy's 6th Birthday and I'm so excited to help her celebrate. I'm planning on taking her to a fancy seafood restaurant and of course, CATmopolitans and dancing afterward. This is going to be such fun day fur my girl and I'm so happy to be a part of it.
Happy Birthday my sweetie pie and always know how much I love you and that you're the sparkle in my eye.
