Nicknames: Pumpkin, Special special, Sweet Pea, Buddy, Bubba, Puppy, Little Man, Old Ash,
Birthday: March 1st 1991
Likes: To lay in bed with mom and suck on her nightgown, Pounce, nosers (head butts)
Pet-Peeves: Mouse butt and tail. Boxes from Brico Med. Supply (his fluids) The Vet. Closed doors.
Favorite Toy: Those grey fur covered mice. He used to love the toliet emptying but grew out of that.
Favorite Nap Spot: Now, on the kitchen table in a Millie Bed from Siamese Rescue and on my head.
Favorite Food: Anything~ Kitty Hospice
Skills: He emmits a purr like no other purr I have ever heard. Loud, mellow, and makes me sleepy.
Arrival Story: A kid living down stairs from us, gave him to me. He said he found him running under cars in Manhattan, NY. We lived in New Jersey then.
I tried to find him a home for at least 12 hours before I decided to keep him. He is great. I was meant to have him. He is enchanting.
He kicks my husband out of bed with just one claw gently poking his back. I don't think he meant to kick him out of bed, he just needed more room. He is happiest when we are watching TV with him in bed.
Bio: Ashley won his battle from CRF/IBD on August 8th, 2008. He won because he was freed from it by his loving parents. A beautiful poem written for him by his Sweet Baby-G:
He Is Free
There is a sparkle in the sky
shining brighter than the rest
A spirit has risen
And passed the test
A tired old man
Who was destined for love
Surely it was sent
From someone above
He knew it then
He was finally complete
With his love at his side
They accomplished the feat
But he soon got tired
And weaker each day
They all rallied around him
And purred their say
No more pressure
No more pain
His keepers released him
But his body remained
Fly free, fly free
Chasing his dream
Of butterflies and rainbows
And rivers of cream
His spirit is free
His heart alive
His soul it shimmers
Up in the sky
He is our Ashley
He is my love
And forever he shines
from heaven above.

We love you!

Forums Motto: The most constant thing in mom's life
If you would like to keep in touch us I put my Facebook name up. We live in Harpers Ferry, Wv. Thank you all for all the support through out the years. It is so sad for this wonderful site and community that was unsurpassed by any copy cats to go and become another dead magazine that many will not care about.
They just cancelled our subscription today. They owe me but they can keep it since they need it so bad.
We haven't been active lately but it hurts just the same to loose all the friends we have made through the love of our cats and dogs, many moms have passed on as well so that be harder for us. It all was real and it all will continue. In quantum theory, everything is constantly moving and that is why we have moved together in this community and we will always have the remembrance that will help us move on.
We can make albums of our cats on FB and PM each other for advice or purrs when we need help. Catster is leaving us we a not leaving each other.
See you all soon after you have saved all your memories.
I can not tell you all how many tears I have cried tonight trying to save everything.
It is bad enough Catster is going away but to re-live it all in the process is very hard. I know some of you feel as I do.
I will always remember each of you. I have a good memory still so were good. : )
I thing we should have a get together before we have vanished from the internet.
I will attend that is for sure. Let me know if you all get a party going. We need one.
Thanks to all for the past 8 years. I couldn't have done it with out you all.
I have your friendships still and like Ash would say, "We are forever."
Ash, Mom is coloring her hair again. It didn't turn all grey so for Baby-G's mom's wedding I am doing it again. I am thinking of you so much today because you were always around when I did my hair and especially the last time.
That is why I can't change the music on your page even though it is sad, it makes me feel like it is right in time. Especially with this crap on my head.
I it came in all grey I would not be doing this. I don't look a pretty as you did with the grey. (It is really white).
