A Cat's MEOW by Kaci Sunshine

Thank you for celebrating my birthday with me! And . . .- some Exciting News!

Thank you for your comments and for your generous gifts on my birthday! Over the next few days, mommy will be thanking those of you who sent gifts. Catster is sometimes slow for us (or we can't get on at all) and it may take a few days for us to thank you all. Mommy is also being kept very busy and would like to tell you why . . .

We have 2 additions to our family!

Their names are Sasha and Tiger Lily. Sasha is grey and white and Tiger Lily is an orange tabby with a little white around her mouth. Tiger Lily resembles me but we're not identical.

They're both 6 years old. Tiger Lily will be 7 at the end of June and Sasha will be 7 sometime in August (mommy has to check their vet records). Their original mommy adopted them as kittens when she was in college. She now has a boyfriend who is allergic to cats . . . so now they have a new home with mommy and grandma. They've been with mommy a week.

Both are very shy, gentle, sweet girls. They've been hiding all week in mommy's bedroom. Mommy even slept downstairs on the sofa for a few nights so they could come out of hiding, do what they had to do and explore. Over the past 2 days, they're coming out of hiding more and more often. Mommy is now leaving her bedroom door open and she knows they've done some house exploring at night. Last night mommy saw Tiger Lily running out of grandma's bedroom and another time she was sitting on the stairs! They haven't interacted much with grandma and hide when she comes into mommy's bedroom. They remind mommy so much of me and Mittens and are acting exactly the same way that Mittens and I did when we first came to live with mommy.

Both cats are front declawed so there won't be any scratching issues with grandma and neither cat is a biter. Their original mommy says they're both very sweet girls. When mommy first met them, she was impressed with how sweet they were. Mommy was told that Sasha will growl and hiss when you put her in a cat carrier and is upset and aggressive when she's at the vet, but that's it.

Tiger Lily is the sweetest little love bug ever! She loves lots of attention and being petted and seems like a happy kitty. She rolls around on the floor when mommy pets her and purrs and purrs and can't get enough of the petting! Her hiding place is under mommy's bed. She started coming out from under the bed a few days ago. At first she came out from under the bed when mommy talked to her and now she's doing it more and more on her own. Last night she and mommy played a game of chase the ball. Tiger Lily played with enthusiasm and kept running after the ball.

Mommy loves that Tiger Lily is so playful because Tiger Lily is very overweight and needs all the exercise she can get (along with a change in diet from dry to wet food, which is going surprisingly well), so she can start to lose some of that weight. She's a lovable butterball! Sasha is a little overweight too. Mommy hopes that with the changeover to wet food only and having a house to roam and play in rather than confinement to a tiny apartment will facilitate their weight loss. Mommy remembers that Mittens and I were little butterballs too when we first came to live with her.

Sasha is shyer in some ways than Tiger Lily. She originally hid in mommy's closet but found the cubbyhole on the cat tree and has spent a lot of time there over the last few days. Although she's shyer with people than Tiger Lily is, she was out exploring mommy's bedroom on the first night and once mommy opened her bedroom door, was the first one out and exploring. Sasha wouldn't let mommy approach her or pet her and if mommy came into the room when Sasha was out, she'd run and hide. However, this morning there was a breakthrough. Sasha was out and didn't run away from mommy and let mommy pet her on two separate occasions. She meowed while mommy was petting her!

Mommy was able to take a few photos of them but it's hard to take decent photos of cats who are hiding. She'll wait until she has better photos and knows more about them before she makes Catster pages for them. And their former mom sent my mommy a few of their "baby" pictures and she was very excited to get them. They were adorable!

Happy purrs,

It's so wonderful that your mom found such sweet kitties! No one can ever take your place, but at least she won't be "kittie-less" anymore.

Hooray! Mom can't imagine giving up cherished pets for just a boyfriend (that's what allergy shots are for) but I can't imagine them finding a better home! (Lest you think Mom insensitive, she was severely allergic to cats as a child, but she loved them too much, and over time became desensitized. However, for that reason, she definitely prefers short-hairs.)

We are glad that they have found furever homes with your mom and grandma. We know that you'll be watching over them, and they are in good hands....and paws.

We are going to their pages right now.

We love you....and always will.
