Today is my Birthday!

   Leave a treat for Shamus (In Loving Memory)

Moose, Moots, Moosh, Moosky, MaMooshka

Rainbow Bridge
April 6th 1993

Gray Tabby

I love sleeping in a nice warm spot.

I hate being an inside kitty because I used to be an outside kitty. I'm also not real fond of the other cats, being my age I just don't like the hassle and trouble they always stir up... Give me some peace and quite!

Favorite Toy:
I don't play as much as I used to, but I love a good old fashioned rabbit kicking contest between me and the hand under the pillow!

Favorite Nap Spot:
In front of the heater, or curled up on the bed.

Favorite Food:
9 Lives canned dinner

I stretch on command, and used to be an escape artist!


Arrival Story:
My mommy brought me home when I was a kitten. I was a tiny thing and had a bad case of ringworm. Mommy fixed me right up and I started growing into the goregous beastie I am today.

I moved from Illinois to Kansas when I was almost a year old, and because my mommy's landlord would not allow pets she had to give me to her brother. His wife is allergic to cats so I became an outside kitty. I was neutered but still got into a lot of cat fights and one day I got into a dumpster and into some rat poison. I had to be rushed to the vets to get an emergency blood transfusion. A pawsome donor kitty gave me some of their blood and I healed up nicely. Mommy was able to have me back from time to time, but I had become her little niece's cat. So I got to roam the great wide countryside. Then they had to move to town and mommy got me back. So since I am home again I am definitely an inside kitty. I'm not too thrilled about it, but mommy keeps telling me an inside kitty is a safe kitty!

Mom is really missing me tonight for some reason.

I think it's because I've been flying around her a lot more since it's been Christmas.

She just knows that she is missing her Moose-Boy a lot for some reason.

That's okay mom, I miss you too. **gives mom butterfly kisses**


A year at the Bridge

A note from mom:

Well friends it's been a year & a day since Shamus went to the Bridge.

I still think of him a lot, but I don't find myself looking for him as much as I used to.

I know he is much happier & healthier there, but it's hard to know that a friend of nearly 14 years is no longer in your life.

I know I don't do a lot with Moose's page but I want to thank all his wonderful friends, especially Arnold P & Moose for their love & support.

It is nice to know he is still loved & remembered by his friends. You guys are the best!

Playing gotcha - the meme game

I have been tagged! That is right I have been tagged a bunch of friends to participate in Kazumi Joy's meme.

The rules:
Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Cats who are tagged need to write on their own diary about the seven things and the rules. You need to choose seven cats to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment that they have been tagged and to read your diary.

My seven random facts:

1. I was the oldest kitty mom ever had, and she got me as a kitten.
2. I loved being outside, even though mom did her best to keep me in.
3. My name is Shamus but my family always called me Moose.
4. I had a blood transfusion once when I got into some rat poison.
5. I loved to sleep with my Uncle Jim and he considered me his boy.
6. I was a bit of a troublemaker in my younger days!
7. I was once on something called Ovaban because I kept spraying everything even after being neutered.

I'm not going to tag anycat because I figure most of them have already been tagged a slew of times. But if anycat hasn't been tagged and they read this then consider yourself tagged! MOL
