Arrival Story:
She was part of a litter belonging to a friend of one of my roommates. We went out to the friend's house, and this little kitty just bounded right over to me. She began crawling on my shoulder. She can't crawl on my shoulder anymore, but she still bounds toward me.

She was born outside of Birmingham, Alabama and moved with me to Florida when I moved.

I can't believe she's gone

This is Lola, Quatsch's mom. Quatsch left this world on Tuesday, November 11th, 2008, shortly before noon.

We had her put to sleep by her favorite vet with her favorite vet assistant there. I hugged her and petted her as she left.

We had to do it--she was jaundiced. Her body was about to shut down on her. I'd been giving her essiac to try to shrink the tumors, immune boosters to help repair the damage from her illness, prednsone to help shrink the tumors and stimulate her appetite. It worked for a few weeks, but the last week or so she did not eat at all, and she hardly moved. She couldn't feel the back half of her body (I guess because of the tumor) and she was having to shuffle herself around.

It was heartbreaking to see her go through that. It's heartbreaking all around. I'm going to miss my baby so much. She was one of the main focuses in my life for fifteen years. It's so hard to let that go.

I'm trying to let my despair go, though. I want her to be happy. Wherever she is, I do not want her worrying about me. I want her to play and be happy. I want her to soak in the sunshine. I want her to roll around in the dirt--whatever she wants to do.

I made a blog tribute page for her. It's here:


I miss my sweet girl so much.


Sick again

I've been sick again. It's the same thing that was wrong with me two years ago. I've known for awhile that I wasn't right anymore, but mommy didn't find out until three weeks ago. She's always so behind!

She's been crying a lot. I don't want her to be unhappy! I try to eat a little, but it hurts my throat. Even the soft stuff doesn't go down well anymore. It's so sad 'cause I LUVS THE FOOD!!! Sometimes I just sniff it and lick it since I can't eat it anymore.

Mommy's been spending every evening with me. I luvs it! I wish she spent every moment of every day with me! I luvs her so much! She likes to pet me.

I think I'm going to be going away soon. I don't know what the place is like, but I hope it's good. I don't think mommy's going to be able to come. She will stay here. She will come over eventually. I'm like the scout :)

I think I will be playing with lots of pretty colored butterflies. Also, I think the fields will be made of catnip and wheat grass. That sounds very fun to me. I would like to be able to run around again. I haven't been able to do that since I've been sick.

Also, my mommy loves me very, very much. I can tell.

That was all the energy I have. I've already eaten, so that means it's nap time. I'll probably sleep the whole day, but then I'll start jumping on my mommy (Whee! Jumping on my mommy!) when it's food time again. Then she'll pet me. That'll be fun. This morning mommy got mad at me because I started asking (politely! I spaced out the meows at one second intervals) for food time early. She got up eventually, though, and fed me.
