Likes: Playing with our dog Quincy's face, being carried over our shoulders, licking my clothes (she's a suckler)
Favorite Toy: Knotted rope toy, cat tunnel, toy mice that rattle, and her brother Enzo
Favorite Food: Wildside Salmon treats are the ONLY treats she'll eat, but only if you throw them on the floor for her to bat around before she eats them!
Arrival Story: My husband and I rescued Melody and her two sisters and two brothers from a neighbor's backyard on April 28, 2007, and nicknamed them the Furbies. Melody was the only one out of the five that my husband caught during the rescue. He had to get a ladder to climb over a fence to get to the area where she was. Melody was cowered under an overgrown shrub and didn't try to run away.
Bio: After we decided that we were going to keep Enzo, Melody was the last one that we were still trying to find another home for. When that home could not be found, I knew I had an emotional deadline (like a few more days, LOL) before I was going to talk to my husband about keeping her too, but he had already read my mind. I just did not want to advertise her availability anywhere if I could not find her a great home through family and friends. Melody is full of personality and alot of fun.
I just added a picture to my page of a backyard visitor. Mom and Huey were outside and even though Huey ran around like he smelled something different, he never looked on top of the fence, but Mom did.
That cat looked alot like me, but I was too busy eating breakfast!
Thank you to my friends for honoring my Gotcha Day today! Mom is always glad she made videos of us when we were babies and took so many pictures as well.
This afternoon, Mom took a catnap with ME! Okay, me and Huey. She rarely takes naps but was sitting on the floor watching TV with me on her lap and for some reason felt sleepy, so she got on the couch and fell asleep with me at her feet and Huey by her head. That made me feel extra happy today!
Guess who were the first ones to remind Enzo and I that is was our Birthday today?
Yes, Mom had actually forgotten, so she didn't wish us a Happy Birthday until we told her!
Mom picked up our Grandma on Friday to spend the weekend here. Riley spent the most time going up to Grandma to get petted, followed by me. Pebbles and Pixie were curious and would look at Grandma, but the rest of the gang stayed upstairs most of the time.
Grandma slept in the room downstairs that has french doors. We hung a curtain behind the door just so she could have some privacy but one night when she left it open a little, she saw Riley and I sitting outside staring at her. MOL!
So, we had a busy weekend, but found some time to put our Easter pages up Sunday, even though we're playing the "page freeze" game on and off during the site relaunch.
Anyway, the weekend made us forget it was going to be our Birthday today, so thank you for reminding us and for partying with us today!
