Tabby and White
Besides eating? Watching water run in the sink! He likes a tiny trickle best and will watch it forever. Not that we've actually left it on that long.
Finding his food bowl empty! Bo loves to eat...and eat...and eat.
His feather stick! It's almost an obsession with him.
Favorite Nap Spot:
Anywhere! Anytime! Any place! Next to eating, sleeping is Bo's favorite hobby.
Any canned cat food...any dry food...human food...dog food...ribbons...plastic...rubber bands...You get the idea - he isn't picky at all.
He'll take his feather stick in his mouth and spin and spin if we can't play with him when he's ready to play. Champion foot-attacker in the night. Sixteen cat-pounds leaping on your feet at 3 AM - quite an experience! "Making biscuits/packing cotton"
Bo's mother turned up on my cousin's porch, pregnant and homeless. My cousin and her girls delivered the kittens when they arrived. I took Bo and his beautiful brother, Cider. Unfortunately, Cider passed away in 2006 from cancer. His cat life was far too short. We tend to pamper Bo even more after losing his brother. Both Cider and Bo tested FLV positive, but so far, Bo is healthy and robust. We give him his interferon regularly and hope this helps protect his health. We take special care of this very special kitty as we do all the kitties with whom he lives. I call him my shadow as he follows me wherever I go.
Update: Bo now has a new adopted sister named Seven. My husband found her abandoned as a tiny kitten at a grocery store. Turns out she FeLV positive, too, so they keep each other company. Bo's wonderful with her, grooming her and playing gently - the perfect big brother!
Update: We've added sisfur Darcy! She's another FeLV kitty so we're giving interferon and L-Lysine to three now. Bo's such a great brother. He cuddles her, grooms her, and they love to play.
Bo is a traveling cat. We take him on vacations whenever we can, and he loves to ride in the car. He's an extremely loving cat. One of his favorite activities is sitting on the bathroom sink, staring at the water as it runs into the drain. It simply fascinates him. Bo never meets a stranger. Bo especially loves to sit on my left shoulder. Never the right. His favorite time to assume this position is when I'm on the computer. Makes it rather difficult to type, but this argument never has much effect on Bo. Computer = left shoulder. End of story.
He's obsessed with watching water flow from the bathroom sink - and drinking it, too! Now he's taught Darcy to be a water-watcher, and she's just as obsessed as her big brofur.
He's a joy each and every day. I'm sure some folks would balk at caring for a FeLV kitty but we feel so blessed to have Bo in our lives.
We work hard to keep Bo and his adopted sisters Seven & Darcy, also FeLV positive, healthy. They get interferon & L-Lysine with their vet's supervision, and we try to keep their lives stress-free. They get lots and lots of love!
Life is Good!

Please Vote To Help FeLV & FIV Cats!! Please??
Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary was started to answer the need for a safe place for blind cats that were deemed unadoptable by regular shelters and were going to be killed just because they are blind.
We are a registered non profit with the state of North Carolina. There are no paid employees, only volunteers, so all contributions go directly to the kitties.
Rescue is about restoring hope and dignity to creatures for whom no one else cares about. We are but humble vessels to help these magnificent creatures find their forever homes. The responsibility is big but the returns on our emotional investment are greater. You cannot place a value on the look of contentment that comes when an animal is clean, exercised, warm, fed and safe for the first time in its life.

I'm flying in from the Bridge to ask you to help make a dream come true for me and other cats with feline leukemia (FeLV).
My Meowmy has visited several times with the wonderful folks of Blind Cat Rescue of NC. It is Alana, the director's, dream to build a sanctuary for FeLV cats like me and FIV kitties, too.
They are entered in the Pepsi Challenge and are so close to winning $50,000.00!!! Yes! The top ten projects will each win. We were in tenth place but now have dropped to eleventh and the contest ends on NOVEMBER 1. If they aren't back in the top ten by then, all hope will be lost.
I had FeLV while on earth...so did my sisfurs Darcy and Seven and my dear littermate Cider. FeLV cats can have happy and fulfilling lives but we are killed immediately in shelters and many owners don't want us once they know we are positive. Please help make a sanctuary for us a reality but voting and spreading the word...we deserve to live, too!!
We are only ONE place away from $50,000!!!!! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE...vote...pass the word...make diary entries asking for votes...use every email address you have...send emails to friends asking for votes...anything you can think of to help make this dream come true.
Here are several ways you can vote:
1) Text 102422 to 73774 You’ll get a confirmation thank for voting text. Only your standard texting fee applies.
2) Go to http://pep.si/9g8Ojg and vote using your email and anyone else's you have! Set up alias accounts, if your provider lets you do that, and vote, vote, vote! Ask your furriends, family, and neighbors. Vote at work! (Don't get fired now!) MOL!
3) Log out and vote at http://pep.si/9g8Ojg with your Facebook page. Many kitties belong there as well as humans. My meowmy meets lots of nice folks there! Post on your status with the links so even more can vote!
This is such a wonderful chance for everyfur to make a real difference in the lives of cats. Time is running out! PLEASE help the FeLV and FIV kitties find a safe, loving home at Blind Cat Rescue!!!
Thank you fur reading my diary!!

My Meowmy asked me to sprinkle some magic angel dust from the Bridge today for a very special cause!
I have two Earth brofurs who are blind and one sisfur who is visually impaired. Here at the Bridge, I have LOTS of furriends who were blind while they were on Earth. AND my sisfur Scarlett is here, too! She was blind on Earth and my Meowmy loved her so very much. She was her first blind cat.
Did you know that even 'no-kill' shelters sometimes euthanize blind cats because they are considered 'unadoptable'?
Did you realize that a blind, black blind cat - like our Bones and Charcoal - stands virtually no hope of adoption?
That cats can become blind due to birth defects, trauma, untreated disease, and yes, even human cruelty?
Did you also know that blind cats love to climb??
That they love to play with cat toys??
That they run and jump and enjoy life JUST LIKE OTHER CATS?
Did you know that there's a very special place for blind cats? A place where they are treated with love, respect, and care? It's TRUE!
This heaven-on-earth for blind cats is Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary of North Carolina, featured in the June, 2010 issue of Cat Fancy. www.blindcatrescue.com
BCR is the dream and life's work of a very special woman, and the Sanctuary depends on the sponsorships of the cats and donations from caring people around the world.
But YOU can help BCR today and everyday in the Shelter Challenge at The Animal Rescue Site! It's FREE and EASY and it can truly make a difference.
Our Stevie, Bones, and Charcoal are some of the lucky ones. They found a loving, caring home, thanks to messages sent to my Meowmy from BCR! Other kitties need the resources only a Rescue can provide.
Won't you help by voting today and every day during the contest for Blind Cat Rescue of NC? (Don't forget to confirm your vote by identifying the animal photo shown after you vote!)
All the blind kitties will purr in gratitude!!

After living five years with FeLV, today I flew to the Bridge to join my littermate brother Cider. I stayed healthy as long as I could but my bone marrow stopped working. I never wanted to leave my meowmy but my body could no longer fight and I slipped away in my sleep at the vet's office.
Now I am making my Bridge Journey. I can hear my meowmy's cries and taste her tears but she knows I'm healthy and will soon be with Cider, Darcy, Dylan, and so many other angel furriends at the Bridge. And one day, I'll run to Meowmy again and rub
my face against hers again!
(I love you, my Bo Cat! You were the happiest, most loving cat I've ever known. I'll
miss you always until we are together again!!)
