I like sleeping and being with mom and dad.
I hate anyone mean or loud. And I hate Orion, he's so mean to me and he keeps trying to mate with me. Baths are terrible!
I used to love to play with mom, she would give me catnip and a little twist tie or flexible stick for me to swat at.
Favorite Nap Spot:
Mom or Dad's lap, on mom's pillow and on the couch. Lately I've been sleeping wherever I can make it to. Don't have much energy now.
I love to eat ANYTHING, I can't so much any more. But mom likes to at least have me try.
I used to meow all the time, have a hard time doing it now. And now sometimes I'll talk to my mom and dad and have conversations with them. Mom talks to me in Cat sometimes too.
My owner had me for 2 years and decided to give me away because she had to move and couldn't take me with her.
She is such a great cat who loves to sleep on laps and be around people.
Alex was just diagnosed with Carcinoma (cancer) on November 14, 2006. The vet said that it started behind her left eye and traveled down to her jaw. Her left eye is now blind and her sinus cavity has been destroyed. She has a hole in the roof of her mouth and because the cancer has destroyed her upper jaw, she has been losing teeth. She should not live for more than a few more weeks and we will miss her dearly.
Always on my mind.

I will miss her jumping on my lap and flopping over just to have her tummy rubbed
When she would lie on the warm, clean laundry even though (or just because) I told her not to
Going to sleep with her pressed up against me, her head on my arm and falling asleep to her beautiful purr
I will miss walking in the door and hearing that meow to tell me she’s glad I’m home
Her standing on her hind legs with her paws on my stomach to tell me she wanted to be held
When she would follow me around the house meowing to tell me she was hungry
I will miss trying to clean house with one hand because of the kitty hanging on so tight
Her left arm around my neck and the right hanging off my shoulder
Those beautiful green eyes that looked around in interest from my height of five foot four
I will miss the spring time when the birds would come out and she would sit in the window and chatter
The summer time when the sun came in at just the right angle to sunbathe on the carpet
The winter time when lying under the covers with mom was not only necessary but also mandatory
I will miss the conversations in mixed Cat and English that could be held for hours
Hearing the cabinet doors open and close from a different room and knowing exactly who it was
Sitting on the floor in the living room, armed with a twist tie, and seeing those black paws flailing about
I will miss hearing claws “click, click” clicking on the tile and paw prints in the sand
Having a kitty staring over my shoulder trying to get a whiff of what I’m eating
Then sitting by my side, inching closer and closer trying to get a lick or a bite
I will miss trying to read a book and having a big black ball of fur come and lay right on top of it
Trying to work on the computer with kitty paws stepping on the keyboard
Losing her in the Mickey Mouse chair of my mom’s that she would blend right into
I remember when we had mice in the house and you tried to go under the kitchen cabinets to chase one
Losing you in the garage because the door had been left open too long
When you had your beautiful kittens and didn’t know how to cut the umbilical cords
I remember when you ran out the front door and we couldn’t find you, you sat by my window that night and howled to come back in, I was so happy to see you
Almost losing you to the dryer when my sister didn’t notice and threw clothes in on top of you
When you would be caught doing something you weren’t supposed to and you would give me that look
I remember when you would sit by the screen door leading to the back yard and taunt the dogs
Then one day, Cookie figured out how to open the door and grabbed you
She and Cochise tossed you around the backyard like a soccer ball and I thought I was going to lose you
I remember when you jumped on the stove because something smelled good and you burned most of your whiskers off
When I would buy you toys and you would find a piece of foil and let me know I wasted my money
When I bought you a bed and you showed me that lying with me was what you really wanted
I remember waking up to you wrapped around my head with your paws in my face
Giving you a drink of my bottled water, that really was what you preferred
The time when you got scared when Steve opened that trash bag and you climbed up the curtains.
I remember when I found out you had cancer, I nearly passed out
After you would eat I would have to wipe your mouth
The day you died I cried and cried

Alexandria died today 12/04/06 at around 1:30pm. Thank you all so much for loving and caring for her. Her pain is now gone and she no longer has to suffer. I loved her so dearly and will miss her even more. She will always be in our hearts. I love you my baby girl. -Mom

I've been really tired and not doing much but sleeping, eating and drinking lately. Mom says that I'm not doing so well. She thinks the hole in the roof of my mouth is getting bigger because I'm having a harder time eating than before. She also thinks that my lungs are probably filled with a lot of food. I have trouble breathing sometimes and barely breathe at all while I sleep. Mom is worried that the cancer is spreading down my neck, I'm having trouble talking. Orion isn't bugging me nearly as much as he was, I think he finally got the point. Mom and Dad still watch him close though. Tomorrow if I don't perk up at least a little, we're going on another trip to the vet. We'll see what happens. I love you all, Alexandria.
