warm laps, my bed by the fire (or Otto's, since it's SO much bigger!), sleeping under the covers in mom's bed
kisses from my doggie brother... YUCK!
the plastic safety ring off 1/2 gallon plastic milk jugs - I'm a cheap date ;-)
Favorite Nap Spot:
a lap, anyone's lap
I REALLY like the new Fancy Feast "Elegant Medley's" - any flavor
I make sleeping an art form
I started out life with my mom's brother. When he asked his girlfriend if she liked cats and she said "yes, especially fried" (NO KIDDING, but she's from a different culture so she can be excused for not falling under my spell - and he did go on to marry her!), I went to live with grandma. When grandma died, I went to live with Mom. Mom says I'm like having a bit of grandma still with her, only louder, and grandma cut her more slack!
I was named after Mikimoto pearls since I was pearl colored and didn't have any "points" when was a young kitten. I have the best of both worlds. I live in the house, but mom lets me out in the protected courtyard. I've been buzzed by hummingbirds - kind of scary - and I don't do mice. I'm getting on in life, but I'm still beautiful and look much younger than 16! I'mVERY well loved!
If it's worth saying, say it LOUD!

Dearest Little One,
It's been a year since you left us to journey to the Bridge. I'm not sure how, but somehow we did survived this year.
We survived, but we paid a price for your absence. We wish for one more whisper of your distinctive Siamese voice, always ready to offer advice, or criticism, depending on the circumstances. The chance to try to read a newspaper - at least the parts you weren't sitting on. We long to feel your weight in our laps, although near the end you hardly weighed anything at all. Most of all we would love to see, just one more time, your incredible sapphire blue eyes regarding us with amusement, mockery, trust and love.
It's been a year when we retired the lint brush, missing every pearl white hair we were always accessorized with - despite our best efforts. My frequent comment - "you're never fully dressed without cat hair" - was retired as well. With each of these events, I thought you felt a little further from our reach.
The crushing sense of loss has eased now, just as the endless sorrow abates a bit with each passing day. In their place comes peace and acceptance of the continuous cycle of life.
The last few weeks I've found myself looking at rescue sites and thinking perhaps my heart is finally ready to love again. Then I realize that all the cats I'm drawn to somehow remind me of you, and decide I might need a little more time after all.
I know one thing for certain - love never dies. You will live on in our hearts until its final beat. That's your cue: watch for me! I'll be coming to find you at the Bridge.
With my love,

I went to the Bridge during the early evening of 3/10/2007 . I was 17 years, 7 months and 10 days old at the time of my passing.
Mom says I was strong and brave until the last. Through weeks of subcutaneous fluid treatments and medications for kidney failure, I remained loving and never resented all the needle sticks, poking and prodding.
I took a sudden turn for the worse over the weekend. The vet confirmed that my liver had started to fail in addition to my kidneys. Even before this news, mom knew it was time to say her final goodbye and give me the greatest gift of all - peace. I slipped away, surrounded by the people who loved me and my wonderful vet. Mom's voice, her loving hands and the touch of her lips on my head are my last memories.
To our Dear Sweet Girl -
We will never forget you, Little One. You made our lives richer by sharing yours with us. You will be in our thoughts and hearts until we can be together again.
All our love till we meet again,
Mom & Otto
