Arrival Story:
He ran away from his litter and went exploring and wound up at my daughter's house. They couldn't keep him so my little granddaughter brought him to us 40 miles away. He was a tiny orange ball of fur with eyes. We loved him then and we love him now, he brings us so much happiness with his loving ways. This was a one-cat household! He now grudgingly shares his home and life with a younger brother and sister. Feliway helps....

Bio:
He is an indoor cat who is an inveterate door-darter and who has used a few of his 9 lives in escape efforts. He is always so happy to be found and brought home, it is puzzling why he keeps doing it. His most recent escape at age 16 was into the snowy frozen winter where he spent the night unbeknownst to any of us. (Orangie knew but he wasnt telling).

Chadwick's Musings


I am getting ready for a journey

I am just so very tired. 18.5 is a good age, and an old guy gets tired, but it is so hard to have to start the journey home. I have been in my cat bed, not on laps, which is unusual for me, for 2 days, not eating or drinking much, not getting up much, just so very tired. I'm not in any pain and I wish I could just lie here and watch the younger kitties run around and see my pawrents, mommy reading, daddy on his computer, my family that I love so much. It is breaking my heart to see mommy cry, and daddy cry, because they don't want me to go. We have been together for such a long time, been through so much together, and I have been able to help them through both of their mother's deaths, mommy's daughter's death, mommy's kidney failure crisis, and daddy's two bouts with cancer. I have been there every time to purr and kiss them and make them feel loved. I wish I could stay with them longer because I know they are hurting with my leaving. I will tell each of the younger cats to take care of them for me, and I hope they remember I will be waiting for them when I get to the bridge.

I will miss my home, my family and my friends, but I will be keeping an eye on everyone and I will be loving you just like I always have, I promise. I have so enjoyed this sweet old world.

Now it is time to rest up because soon I will be leaving on a long journey. For right now I am resting and sleeping and keeping peaceful thoughts.

Many purrs,
Chadwick

 

Goodbye To A Good Friend

Last night my dear old friend Simon crossed the bridge. It was peaceful, it was not sudden, it was gentle, but it still tore a hole in my heart. I am remembering all the good times we had together here on Catster when we were younger and crazier. I guess the Orange Cat Posse is formally retired now, and its time to put my Harley in mothballs, but one of these days we will all ride together again over the Rainbow Bridge, and I will play my purple piano so Simon and my other friends can dance and sing.
Goodbye for now Simon, but not forever. I love you buddy.

 

Nostalgic Memories

Years ago my good friends and I had a wonderful time in Big Leo's Alley. Around the same time I decided to open my own group for the writers and poets and story tellers among us, and I gave birth to TALL CAT TALES. Over the years we had some wonderful times there, but alas, like everything in life, it seems to be coming to an end with very few cats coming by any more, and the time is near for me to close the doors. Doing so makes me very sad. So, like the poet I used to be, I wrote this poem in limerick form to tell everyfur how I'm feeling as this era of my life comes to a close. I know that my kitty life is also coming to a close soon. I just hate goodbyes. And I hate endings.

TALL CAT TALES

I once hung at Cobblestone Square
A lot of my old friends were there
I wrote and I read
And made rhymes in my head
Thought I'd make a new group if I dare...

Though I figured it out all alone
Tall Cat Tales became my new home
I wanted to stay there
Forever and ever
But I couldnt stay here when at home

My daddy became sick with cancer
My parents were praying for answers
Mom didn't have time
To help me make rhymes
I said "I'll be back as soon as I can, sir"

But it is too late, I'm bereft
I wish all my friends had not left
But life does move on
Like a poem or a song
And memories are all I have left.

And memories are good for an old cat like me.
