Arrival Story: "We moved into a townhouse and noticed that the dog food outside was "vanishing". Soon enough we saw Snowy for the first time. It seems that people moved and left her behind to fend for herself. She got more used to us and now lives with us and is such a sweet, loving kitty...I can't understand how someone would throw her away :(
So this morning on the way to work meowmy stopped to get some money from an ATM which is at a mall on the route...she almost didn't stop then decided to since she was still early for work.
While waiting at the ATM as there was someone ahead of her she heard sad meowing...of course as soon as she was done she investigated. She feared that there was a pet shop selling kittens, which she hates, but then realized that wasn't the case - the sound seemed to come from a clothes shop. Peeking through the window (it was still closed) she didn't see anything...then looked up and saw that there was a ventilation shaft in the wall above the glass of the window and a supporting column (pic: https://scontent-a-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-frc3/t1/q71/s720 x720/1507878_10152325359674319_1414430012_n.jpg )
Much to her horror she realized the kitty was INSIDE the column! She spoke to it and it meowed and meowed, in distress. It had obviously walked around the shaft and fell down the hole into the column - as it is hollow inside. No way to tell in what state it was, how long it has been there - she rushed to centre management and told them what is up - they weren't too friendly but told her it's ok she can go they will take care of it. NO WAY. She was going to stay till that baby is safe. She rushed home, got one of our carriers and a blanky and went back. After about an hour the handyman arrived with a hammer and some other tools and we broke the column loose from the wall and tadaaa....a teeny tiny BLACK fluffy kitten!! Meowmy was so happy, and the kitten too - it immediately curled up, exhausted, and closed it's eyes.
By this time a lot of people had gathered - before no one cared, just say "oh no" and went about their business - suddenly everyone cared. One specific lady immediately wanted this tiny ball of fur - she has 3 kitties of which one is a new kitten, and said this one will make a great furriend for it. Meowmy was so happy she hugged the lady, and as soon as she took the little one she (meowmy checked *giggles*) curled against her and purred (pic of the kitty with the lady: https://scontent-b-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash4/t1/1623788_ 10152325393929319_116780965_n.jpg ). YAY! Happy endings! (Except meowmy's smart phone, which got smashed...but a small price to pay for saving this tiny one.)
Meowmy was saddened by how little people care though. The one guy said that the kitten was there from at least yesterday, as he heard it then. when she asked him why didn't they do something then he just shrugged. Another man - when meomwy said she will get the kit out herself if needs be - just moaned about the damage that will be caused. To think that people will rather leave a kitten to starve to death that to incur some damage is beyond her.
But...we are just happy for a happy ending. Thank karma meowmy was there.
I am at a loss for words. Meowmy has been crying as she reads old rosies and stars and gifties, knowing she won't be able to save the thousands of messages, but still trying desperately to save what she can.
I luv you all and miss my dear friends, and will even more now :(.
If your pawrents are on Facebook, meowmy is Carli Argirova and she is in the new group "Catster Buddies" on there, posting and helping people preserve memories.
If not - her email is firstname.lastname@example.org - please stay in touch.
Thank you for the great times, I will remember catster for ever.
A day or two ago a dear furriend, Oly wrote the following in Hazel Lucy's purr thread:
"We are purring for everycat/dog who is not doing well. We try to send a rosie to all those we are purring for, but sometimes that's just not possible. But please know we are always purring for you all!
We are so thankful for this list, because it actually helps mom feel "useful" on here.
We thank all of you who are purring right along with us."
And I wanted to share my reply to her here as well, because I truly meant it:
"Oly & everypurr....you ARE useful sweeties! Simply coming here and posting a purr helps so much - and I think you only realise it when you or one of your furblings are on the list. I know we felt so much better when Scottie had a lip ulcer a while ago by coming here and feeling the power of the purr.
It means so much to worried meowmies and daddies to know that they are not alone and forms a beautiful blanket of care to envelope them in, weaved with threads of love and purrs. And of course Hazel Lucy is the gentle paws that puts this special blankie around your shoulders.
We luv all of you! "
So purrlease when you have a minute to spare, visit the Catsters in need of serious purring thread to join in the circle of purrs and the power of the paw ~ it can work miracles not only in kitties but to soothe worried meowmies and daddies.
Some days are happy when a kitty or doggie is better, and some are sad when one gets a bad diagnosis or leaves us for the bridge - but each day is worth it.
Dear, big-hearted and much loved Hazel Lucy updates the list (which can be found in the first post of the thread) each day, and I send out a HUGE hug to her for her hard work! She is an earth angel!
