Sunbathing on the deck and hunting
Having to get anywhere near our indoor cat
Since she is outdoors she will play with anything that moves and she likes hunting rodents and birds
Favorite Nap Spot:
On the deck in her box
Wild things and dry cat food
I was in middle school and had just suffered the horrible and sudden death of my first and most beloved cat Pepper. I was not dealing with it well. He was hit by a car while I was at school and in the ground before I got home. I needed a friend to at least be a warm body to fill the void. Miss Kitty was living with one of my mother's coworkers and they wished to find her a permanent home. So we took Miss Kitty home. She was about nine months old, and of course the first time I called her Pepper by mistake sent me running away in tears. But over time the hurt of my loss healed and I came to love her just as much. I would go outside to visit her on chilly days and she would crawl inside my coat where it was nice and warm and we would cuddle. She adores being brushed and having her back scratched.
I don't see Miss Kitty as much as I used to. She still lives with my parents though I have since left and graduated college. I don't live at home anymore but I couldn't take Miss Kitty with me because she is an outdoor cat and would not be happy anywhere else. She has lots of woods to play in and it is very safe for her there. The cutest thing about her is her voice. During middle age it is as if she lost her voice. Now she just kind of squeaks. My dad says that her squeaker is broken.
September 23, 2011 Miss Kitty passed away. She was one of the toughest little girls I have ever known. for the last two years she slowly has declined. At the time of her death she weighed only 5.5 pounds and the family decided that it was time for her to go to a better place. I will love her and miss her but I am glad she no longer is in pain.

Thank you everyone who have sent supportive wishes and purrs for me and for my mom. Eventually she plans to thank you all individually. The love and support means so much. Meanwhile I am adjusting to life here at Rainbow Bridge. It is such a wonderful and colorful place and I can see all of the colors, which I couldn't do on earth! I have made really great friends with Pepper and he thanked me for looking out for his mommies Amy and Erin; but Erin especially because she had such a tough time losing him and had so much trouble making friends. But he said he always kept an eye on everyone from afar and that we would both watch out for them now too. There are so many wonderful dogs and cats here that all romp and play and get along. Some of us get together and help keep an eye on the families of some of our friends. I truly can watch out for my family better from this side than I could when I was so sick and not feeling good. I hope my family knows that they made the right decision. I will always and forever eternally love you all with every whispery fiber of my now immortal spirit.

The struggle was long, and I stubbornly held on much longer than I probably should have. I weighed 5.5 pounds but I still had my spirit. I purred, and looked around alertly at everyone around me. I even struggled a bit when they wanted to put the needle in my leg. But I had not eaten for three days; and the people who loved me believed struggling to keep me alive through one more brutal winter was not kind. I was not walking well, my coat was a mess, and holding me in their arms was like holding a skeleton. Mom had been anticipating my loss for quite some time. Every time they thought I was going I somehow managed to bounce back. But I was tired, and lonely, and just plain didn't feel good anymore. My mommy Amy, and Miss Doris were there with me and there was a lot of crying. But it happened so quickly the next thing I knew I was floating above them. I was met by this plump lady with an angel's face and another cat who said his name was Pepper. The lady said her name was Lawanda and that she had been Mr. Donnie's mother. She said that my mommy Erin had asked her to come and meet me and that was exactly what she was doing. I noticed that my coat was full and beautiful again, that it didn't hurt to walk. My feet felt better and I let the nice lady pet me. I sniffed noses with Pepper, and he told me that he had visited mommy Erin already to let her know that I would be all right and that he would be here to greet me and take care of me. I don't want anyone to feel guilty about anything. No one could have taken better care of me. I had a wonderful life and I can tell that the people and animals here are amazing and I don't think my wait will be long until I see everyone else again. Please don't mourn me too much or be sad for me. No more could have been done and my love for you all has gone nowhere. Soothe your hearts, you don't need to worry about me anymore. I have taken up residence in that extra-special place in your heart reserved for the truly loved but gone. Love to you all, Miss Kitty

I am still hanging in there but I am still far too thin. I get my pill every single day and I am eating but you can still feel all of my bones. I am due to go back to the vet in the very near future so we should find out if there is anything that we need to be concerned about. I have trouble grooming myself and my hair can get knotted up fairly easily. But my humans take as good a care of me as they can given my status as an elderly lady. I have lived far longer than most outdoor kitties like me and I have had a very good life. For now I'm still hanging in there, I am not thriving but no one can count me out yet.
