Dilute Calico

Eating and begging for food, looking out the window at birds and squirrels and bossing everyone around.

Going to the vet, taking medication, loud noises, the vacuum cleaner, ignoring her when she wants attention.

Favorite Toy:
She likes playing with her cork ball, catnip carrot, catnip candy cane and boogie mat.

Favorite Nap Spot:
In her cat bed, the teepee bed, the *cave* in the cat tree and on my bed.

Favorite Food:
Wellness, Weruva, Tiki Cat, Pro Plan and FF. She's very fussy about her food. She loves people food treats such as spaghetti, blueberries, cheese & turkey.

She has turned me into her slave.


Arrival Story:
Mittens had two other homes before coming to live with me. A friend of mine adopted Mittens and her sister Kaci when they were a little over 1 year old and they lived with her for 8 years. In January 2006, my friend knew she was dying from cancer and was seeking new homes for them. Two days after learning of their plight, I decided to adopt them. It's one of the best decisions I've ever made!

Mittens is very timid and shy. She hid in my bedroom closet for the first week, only coming out to eat and use the litter box when no one was home during the day or at night when everyone was sleeping. At the end of the first week, she surprised me by leaving the safety of my bedroom closet and walking up to me and rubbing my legs. She let me pet her too! At that point, she set up headquarters under my bed for the next several months although she started coming out of the bedroom more and more often until one day, about 3 months after living with me, she appeared downstairs. Mittens is one of the most gentle, non-aggressive, peaceable cats I've ever known. She is a very sweet and affectionate kitty but very shy with people. However, when Mittens gets to know you, after observing and studying you, and feels comfortable enough to trust you, you will find out what a gentle, sweet and affectionate kitty she is!

Miss Mittens was diagnosed with intestinal lymphoma on December 23, 2008. She went on chemo and did very well -- her cancer did not get worse or spread. In May 2010 she was diagnosed with kidney disease and a grade 3 heart murmur. Her kidney disease progressed rapidly. Subq fluids didn't help. In July, she became severely anemic and rapidly lost weight. By the end of August, she stopped eating and deteriorated so much that I made the painful decision to let her go. My sweet, precious girl joined the angels on September 1, 2010. She is deeply and sadly missed.

Thank you Catster for choosing me as a DDP Today! (and where- we are now and where we may be)

Thank you Catster for choosing me as a DDP today!


Thank you Big Harry for the beautiful DDP picture memento. Mom started crying when she saw it.


Kaci Sunshine and I are on Cathugger. If you're there (or plan to go there) please look us up.

Many of you are on Petster. We looked it over and like it and will join Petster in a day or two.

Furry Families is also promising.

Mom is still undecided about FB. Please tell mom all the negative stuff she's heard about FB isn't true and it isn't as scary as she thinks it is!

I'm going to miss you dear friends!

Purrs, hugs & love,
Miss Mittens

Edit: after weighing pros and cons and talking to a lot of friends, mom is NOT joining FB.


For those with Mac computers: how to save diaries, pages,- etc. as PDF documents

If you have a Mac computer like mommy does, Beepers told Kaci an easy way to save diary entries, etc. in PDF format on your computer. You don't have to download Google Chrome or Firefox (unless you want to). You can use your Safari browser.

From Beepers:

Kaci, or anyone using a Mac:

You can save almost any page as a PDF very easily -- it does not matter what browser you're using. Your Catster pages won't look exactly the same, but I haven't found a PDF converter yet that makes them exactly the same as you see them. Kaci, you can try this using Safari and see what you think (I have both Chrome and Safari and the PDF's made via the "print" function look the same).

1. Hit Command and P on the keyboard to bring up the "print" menu

2. On the Print menu, go to the lower left-hand corner and click on the arrow alongside PDF

3. Choose "Save as PDF…"

4. It will then open the menu to choose where to save it, and what to name it.

You could also use an online PDF converter. The PDF's look different that way than making them through the Print function, so you might prefer one over the other. I tried these so far:



and the one Flicka suggested the other day:

Thank you for the hot cocoa, cake and balloons!

Wow! look at all the goodies: hot cocoa, cake (yum!) and balloons!

Is there a pawrty somewhere?

Seems that there is! Dogster is celebrating its 10th annivesary. Happy anniversary Dogster!

Acting as spokescat on behalf of our family -- Kaci Sunshine, Abby, Pete, Jennifer & Callie and me -- we thank our friends for all the goodies!

Also, we want to say we haven't disappeared.

First, mom was sick all of December and into the first week of January and is now recuperating and getting better. She doesn't remember ever being sick for such a long time except for the time she had bronchitis about 20 years ago. For the past 2 weeks, she's also had laryngitis and been unable to talk to anyone, in person or on the phone, except whisper things to grandma. Luckily, her voice is slowly coming back and it's getting easier to talk, at least for short periods of time.

Mom is still grieving deeply for Kaci Sunshine and then being sick has made mom feel very depressed, to say the least. She's been feeling a lack of energy to do things, like hang out on Catster.

Mom also realized that all of her kitties are angels now and have nothing to say any more and there's nothing to say about us. So, except on special occasions, we won't be writing in our diaries anymore.

But . . . we LOVE Catster (in March, we'll have been here 7 years!) and aren't going anywhere! We'll still be here, lurking around and reading friends' diaries and checking posts in forums and groups and responding on occasion.

We love you all!
