Arrival Story:
In August 2006 I moved from a small 1-bedroom apartment to a larger townhome. By the end of the month I had settled in and decided it was time to adopt a pair of cats. I visited PetSmart because I heard The Almost Home Foundation had adoption drives on Saturdays. I knew I wanted a cat, not a kitten. Cats don't need to be trained, their personalities have developed, and they are more relaxed. Most importantly I wanted to give a cat a second chance to have a home. I arrived when people were setting up. Down at the far end I saw this one big cat alone in a cage that was almost too small for him. His name was Sugar and he reminded me of a cat I had while growing up. His tag said that he liked to hang out with the guys, which suited me perfectly. His foster parents told me he was abandoned in February in his cat carrier outside the flower shop of an Almost Home volunteer. He has been waiting for his new home for over six months and his frustration was showing. They assured me he would be a different cat when I got home. I felt sorry for the poor guy and my intuition told me we'd get along great. I renamed him Sarge at the suggestion of my mother. He turned out to be a very sweet and loving cat who greets me when I come home from and purrs at a moment's notice.

Bio:
Hello! I am Sarge. I can't say much about my original human family except for that they had me declawed and could no longer keep me. But they care about me enough to make sure I would eventually find a new home instead of leaving my fate to the pound. Daddy thinks my original people were old and had a lot of things. That's why they declawed me. And the either passed on or had to move to an assisted living home and couldn't keep me. I'd like to think they'd be happy to know what finally happened to me. Anyway my foster parents took great care of me until I found my new Daddy. I had lots of other kitty friends, but every seven days I had to spend a few hours in a little cage and had strange people poke at me. I kept hoping one would take me home, but no one did for months. Then my Daddy came here and I knew I would finally get a new home. My first day there, while my new step-sister was hiding in the basement closet, I was taking a nap on the bed. After a few days I was making biscuits on his arm. Daddy says I'm too curious for my own good. I want to go outside and sniff around but without claws I can't defend myself or hunt. Sometimes I sneak outside when the front door is open. I just sniff the bushes, eat grass, and scratch my back on the sidewalk so Daddy doesn't mind too much and will let me have a minute before scooping me up and putting me back inside. The garage is a different story though. When I get to go in there I like to sleep under Daddy's car's engine and walk on the roof. I can be lured back inside with a kitty treat. I love my kitty treats!

I almost forgot, thank you everyone who remembered and sent something. Thank you as well to those who came by. I deeply appreciate how so many of my Catster friends remember Sarge despite the condition of the website itself. We will not be forgotten.

May your year be filled with fond memories.

 

Three Years

Three years I had to let you go. The cancer was getting worse and you haven't eaten in two days. I wanted to keep you, just for a few more days, but you were starting to go downhill and I couldn't let that happen. You deserved better.

Catster is still messed up. I have to wonder if they ever plan on fixing it. I wish they could at least fix the feature that lets us reply to diary postings.

The time you've been gone is about half the time that you've been here. I don't want the memory to fade. One day the majority of my time living in our house would have been spent without you. A different day and Pepi would have lived here longer than you. You were so special, Sarge. You were my first cat as an adult and you've taught me about love and loss. I wouldn't trade it for anything.

Lena has kidney problems. We think we can control it with diet and food. But she's turning her nose up at the food. She's a grazer because her tummy is small. I'll do right by her. She misses you too.

Thank you for being my buddy, Sarge.

 

Happy Birthday Buddy

Well buddy you would have been 13 if they cancer didn't take you away. Thank you to all our Catster friends who sent presents and well wishes. I hope Catster can fix itself so you can reply to diary entries soon. I haven't been here much because so many things are still broken.

I still think of you occasionally, Sarge, and miss you not being around. I remember how you'd greet me at the door and always want to be close by. You were grateful for every day I had you and I was grateful for every day you spent with me.

Lena and Pepi are doing all right. Lena has decided she loves to sit on my left shoulder which is ruining my posture. Pepi is slowly learning that it's OK to sit on my lap.

All of us remember the good times. Thank you, Sarge.
