Arrival Story: A friend of mine, Sharon, who lives on a farm between Gladstone andPlumas Manitoba, had some kittens. She asked me if I wanted one and I said No, two cats were lots already. That was in May of 2006. In June we went to a social and I spent the night at their home. In the morning I saw all the animals that were living outside, including this set of kittens. There were four white ones, they all had some kind of gray on top of there heads. And then there was this tiny little muti colored cutie. They were all a little wild, ran away if you got too close. The mother cat was a multi colored one too. The baby looked a lot like its mother. Any way, Sharon said take one home. I said Nay. As the day wore on and I watched these kittens, I was drawn to this multi colored one. She was the tinest thing and clearly the leader of the pack. All the others followed her up the tree and back down again. I finally got a hold of her and had a good look at her face. She had the sadest look in her eyes. And when she looked into my eyes, it was a deep intensse look. Before I knew it I said to Sharon, I'm taking this one home and I'm going to call her Bijou, it means My Jewel in french.
Bio: The day Meowmy brought me home was kind of scary. It was my first car ride and then I went into the house! I was never allowed in a house before. I was born outside, under the deck of the house. It was pretty cool and wet out still when I was born, at least the snow was gone. Meowmy put me down on the floor and there were two big kitty's standing right in front of me! I jumped back and stood between Meowmy's legs. This one, who later I found out was Friday, freaked out! He started hissing at me and his eyes went all big and black. It was scary! Meowmy picked me up fast and told Friday NO! Friday ran into the living room and jumped up on to the top of that chair in the corner and sat there going crazy for four days! The other kitty, buddy, was looking at me. Meowmy put me back down and he sniffed at me and walked away. Meowmy gave Buddy affection and tried to with Friday, but he was completly bonkers by this time. Friday attacked Meowmy, scratching and hissing at her and anything that moved. Meowmy even got bitten! So Meowmy made supper and ignored Friday, but it was hard too, because she loves him. That evening I ran up the drapes like it was a tree, freaked Meowmy out, guess the other two never did that! And that night, after Meowmy went to sleep , I crrawled into her arms and fell asleep. Meowmy woke up during the night and discovered this. I had a problem learning what a kitty pan was. It took awhile and Meowmy even bought me my own, which did help.
Friday and I became the best of buddies. It took almost two week for us to be ok with each other, but the waite was worth it. I was a farm cat and stubborn, I wanted to do everything my own way. Meowmy and me had lots of wars, buts lots of love throughtout every battle! I came in season really young and Meowmy wan't prepared for this. I started spraying all over the house and urinating on the bed. Meowmy couldn't afford to get me fixed right away and she said she would have to get rid of me and I would have to go live on the farm again if I didn't start behavin. *Bijou has been my most difficult pet to train and it has been trying. Lots of tears shed, didn't know if I was going to keep her. Friends said they would come in to get her to bring her to a no kill shelter, but something inside me rebeled and I said no, I'm keeping Bijou. After I had Bijou spade she became a totally different kitty. No more spraying or urinating wherever she felt like. I'm so glade I never gave up on her. Bijou is my most vocal kitt, running around calling for me and mumbling to herself. She likes to be centre of attention, and she is spoiled. Bijou is also very close to me. I have a very different relationship with her than I have with my two boys.* I think Meowmy will never let me go. I'm her little girl.....meow!
Mai Meomwy brought up dis long box from downstairs yesterday afternoon. We love love love boxes and couldn't waite fur her to get whatever was inside of it out, so we can have the best toy in da whole wide world. Gee Meowmy how come dis was downstairs??? Holding out on us is what I think, MOL
