Arrival Story: She was a Christmas present from my boyfriend, Matt, this past Christmas. She had gone from a home, to a shelter, to a foster home, to Petsmart where she was put up for adoption. When Matt saw her, she melted his heart. He kneeled down to her cage and asked, "Do you want to go home?" and she walked right out of her cage into his arms... It was the sweetest thing...SHE is the sweetest thing!
Bio: check this out...what a heroic little kitten.
How are you? Sorry it has been so long since I've sent you a little note. We have been so busy with the holidays and mommy's school. We went to grandma's house up in Indy on the 10th of December, and did not get back home to Evansville until yesterday.
Mommy had to work a lot over the holidays, and she spent a lot of time with daddy because he is going to Iraq. He left on January 2nd, and I have been a furry ball of emotions since my daddy left. I'm sure you remember how much of a daddy's girl I am. Whenever daddy calls, mommy puts him on speaker phone and no matter where I am in the apartment I always come and sit on mommy's lap when I hear daddy's voice. Daddy left Astro & I a note by our food dishes that said "I love you Astro & Phoebe Jo. Love Daddy".
I've been pretty rotten since daddy left too. Mommy has caught me going potty outside of the litter boxes twice just since daddy left. I pushed mommy's buttons this morning because I told her I was going to go potty outside the litter box. I stood on my back legs, put my front paws on mommy's legs to get her attention and meowed till she looked at me...then I walked right through the litter box into the closet and peed on her slipper. It was like I was asking her to catch me. Mommy was not happy with her little princess at that moment. I got no treats today because I did that.
I do that sometimes though. I sometimes just pee on mommy's things. It's only mommy's things. I never go on the bed, or the couch, or a blanket, or the carpet. It's always on mommy's clothes or slippers or towel she used in the shower. Mommy has asked our doctor why I do that and what she can do about it without hurting my feelings, but nothing has really worked. The dr. told mommy that I get very scared of losing her so that could be my way of making sure she knows that I belong to her, and I dont want to let go of her.
That reminds me, mommy wants to know how I ended up in a shelter? She says there are some behavioral things I do that make her wonder about my past.
Astro & I have been taking turns taking care of mommy since daddy left. But Astro wont share mommy with me and he's been hogging all of her attention lately. He won't even let me lay on the couch next to mommy if he's laying with her. Oh well, I'm feeling kind of silly so I'm going to go force my way in between him & mommy...the big meanie. I can't wait to hear from all of you!
Mommy's boyfriend just got his orders and will be serving in Iraq for 12-18 months. Mommy has had a difficult time with this and we would appreciate it if you could extend any prayers. Thank you for your support and we'll do our best to stay in touch.
