Arrival Story: I was adopted by my mommy from a rescue organization in Los Angeles. Mommy saw my photo on Petfinder.com. My old parents were moving and didn't want me in their brand new house. They had a new baby too and I didn't fit into the picture I guess. From the minute my new mommy set eyes on me, she was in love. I tried really hard to be charming and cute. I was a little overweight at the time, depressed and in desperate need of brushing, love and attention. My first week with mommy I hid behind a bookcase. I had never been out of my old parents' apartment in Burbank. I was a very scared and timid cat. She saw the diamond in the rough though and now I am one of the most handsome cats around town! With the help of my brother I have come out of my shell even more. Now I don't hide when visitors come to the house. I still don't like them but I won't run and hide under the bed anymore! My hobbies are, eating, sleeping, cuddling with my brother and grooming my immaculate white feet!
I'm top cat in the house because I'm so smart. I have a way of manipulating people into giving me food and treats. I'm a true gourmand.
Bio: **I was diagnosed with stage 2 CRF on Oct 3, 2008. Mommy is now taking me to a specialist who is monitoring my condition. We hope to slow the progression of the disease with a special diet and medication. Mommy is not sure how much more time I have on this earth but she's going to take advantage of every precious moment with me!**
Today would have been my 15th birthday on earth. Instead I'll be celebrating at the Bridge with my brother Micah and all my friends here. I know that my family will be thinking about me all day. I wish that I could have made it to this day with Momma and Daddy but it just wasn't meant to be but I'm grateful that they have wonderful birthday memories of me to think about today. ~Jake Cat
A picture tells 1000 words... of how much we all miss you Jake, including your little brother Jonah. On the Eve of your brother Micah's death I've been doing a lot of remembering back to this time last year as we approach the holiday season that you loved so much. I'm still missing you so much. It's hard to get up every day and I miss the funny things you were always coming up with to do. I miss having my little man beside me at my desk all day. Your window seat sits empty most of the time now. Everyone used to fight over that seat but I think they just wanted to be there because that is where you were. Most of all I miss seeing your face and the way you always knew exactly what I was feeling...
If we could have a lifetime wish
A dream that would come true,
We'd pray to God with all our hearts
For yesterday and You.
A thousand words can't bring you back
We know because we've tried...
Neither will a thousand tears
We know because we've cried...
You left behind our broken hearts
And happy memories too...
But we never wanted memories
We only wanted You.
I miss you Jake. I can't believe it's been one whole month today that you've been gone. The tears are still quick in my eyes when I think of you. You were a beautiful spirit who taught me so much about what it means to love. Love, Mommy
There is a sacredness in tears.
They are not the mark of weakness, but of power.
They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues.
They are messengers of overwhelming grief...
and unspeakable love.
