Arrival Story: my furbaby Allie was 10 months old and died unexpectedly (went in to get spayed & had complications). I was so lonely and depressed one week later, that I went to a kitty boarding facility that gave away free kittens. I had wanted another grey kitten. They said they'd have one available in a few weeks (when finished weaning) but that Mr. B needed a home. He had been found near the facility hit by a car, and near death. His foster parents were no longer able to care for him. They just took care of him after the surgery (they named him Mr. Bigglesworth because he was completey shaved and looked like Dr. Evil's cat in the Austin Powers movie). He was missing an ear and looked really mangie.... I didn't really want him, but I saw his beautiful, scared eyes as they were putting him back in a cage (after being in a home) and my heart went out to him. I agreed to foster him until my grey kitten was ready, and sure enough he decided that he had found a permanent home with me! :) I did get the grey kitten and his brother (I no longer have them) and now Mr. B is the King of the castle!
Bio: His broken ear gives him character! He is very sweet, affectionate and always wants to be with/near me. He never used to be a lap cat, but lately he's been spending alot more time on my lap! He loves sitting on the patio and taking in the sun, or looking out the window bird/people watching! :)
Hello catster cats! This is Mr. B's momma here. First of all, I'd like to thank Mr. B's friends who gave him treats and zealies on his birthday (he says thanks guys!). In fact, they reminded me that it was his bday, since I hadn't looked at the calendar, and I usually celebrate his gotcha day (which was in April, 2003).
Anymews, I haven't been on this page at all lately becaue I'm now following all the fur baby bloggers on FACEBOOK (including catster's wall). I have fun reading about all the kitty antics and seeing fun pics and of course, learning new things!
As for the status of me getting another cat, I've still been tempted, (3x just recently) but have talked my self out of it. I think Mr. B. has sent his wishes loud and clear to the adoption fairy!
I was just watching cats 101 on Animal Planet and discovered a new breed that makes me wonder if Mr. B is (at least partially).. it's called javanese (I know there are some of you out here). I used to think he was part Maine Coon because of the long hair and tufts in his paws and ears, but he wasn't really big enough & didn't have as bushy a tail. Now that I see what a Javanese looks like (same features) and know its characteristics, I'm thinking that sounds like Mr. B (he "chirps" too)! So I'm very curious to know what breed he is, though it really doesn't matter.
OK,so now that I've updated my page, I'm going back to Facebook...
meow for now,
Lia (& Mr. B.)
I was so pleasantly surprised when momma told me the news, because she hasn't kept up with my page in a LONG time. So it was really great to be picked!! :) I'm going to celebrate by sitting on momma's lap all night long!
Ok, so I know it's been awhile, but mom finally got around to letting me log on to wish you all a happy hollyday!
There hasn't been much new stuff this year. Mom is finally learning not to even attempt bringing me another kitty. She was very tempted though, there was a litter of babies brought in to where she works and there was one who was so afraid, just like me! She was going to take it home, and try again... one of her co-workers almost talked her into it by saying, "it doesn't matter what you want, it's what the cat wants, and this one obviously wants you!" - wow, talk about twisting your arm into something! However, the cat fairy heard my pleas and intervened... the family that was there to take one of the other babies, wanted to take that one too. She was hesitant because it was a little girl, and mom thought that might not be the best family for a scared little baby... my mom has experience with scaredy cats because of me! But she figured it would be in a good home, and probably better off than being around me, who would most likely scare the poor thing even more with my hisses, big size, etc. Keep your paws crossed though, because the momma cat still needs a new home too and momma told the lady that if no one else wanted her, she'd take her. So please pray that momma found a good home already!
Speaking of being a scaredy cat, my mom noticed that I'm getting braver in my old age!!! I don't run away as quickly from strangers, I'll stay and sniff them out first. I'm also not as afraid of water as I used to be... I'm even climbing into the big tub now! She doesn't know why I'm much braver, but she's glad! However, it worries her that I'm not as afraid of the garage door, because I used to run far away when I heard it, which kept me safe. Now she has to be careful to make sure I don't run out and get lost (I haven't been outside since I was rescued 6 years ago!)
Anymeows, I had a nice christmas (my mommy didn't leave me this year) and I hope you all did too! Hope you all have a happy, healthy, stress free New Year!
Ciao for now,
PS check out my 2 new pics... mom was thinking of changing all of them, but they are still her favorites of me!
