I love to nap! And chase things, especially strings. Did I mention napping?
I don't like loud noises, bounding dogs, or sudden movement. An empty food bowl is a negative, as well as a dirty litterbox and a not-filled-to-the-top water bowl.
I enjoy strings, hands, catnip toys and lasers!
Favorite Nap Spot:
I really like the new kitty bed my humans brought home. I am supposed to share it with the dog, but I take up as much room as possible. Also, I like lying in the middle of the floor so humans must step over me.
Some of my favorites include turkey, cheese, catnip, chicken, ranch dressing, white milk, strawberry yogurt and vanilla ice cream.
Despite limited use of her back legs, she is a real good mouser!
I had just started college, and I was hanging out with my mom at her job. I was telling her how much I wanted a cat to keep me company at home, as I was living on my own for the first time. Her coworker at the time had been telling her about the cat she had that her son threw around, literally into walls. She was afraid the kid was going to kill the cat! She was desperately searching for a new owner, and I was searching for a kitty. Over the weekend, she brought her to my house. Kitta was so scared! I could tell she did not like people, either, from her past treatment. She would just bite me and attack my legs for no reason! But she was mine. I have loved her ever since.
I have some spinal cord damage from past abuse; Mom found the source when I was at the kitty hospital for some other surgery for my tummy pains. Mom said something about stones in my bladder...Anyway, she told me the X-Ray showed crushed vertebrae that was putting pressure on my spine, and that was why my back legs don't work right and why I don't have complete feeling from about mid-back on down. I have tried to block the memories from my first home, but it's hard. I don't really like males at all, no matter how nice they want me to believe they are! No worries about my getting around, though! I can get anywhere I want to be. Once, Mom and Dad left me home alone for a weekend, and I got cold, so I climbed into their bed to get under the covers. You should have seen their faces when they came home! Priceless! I climb stairs, too. I might be tired when I get to the top, but I can do it! Mom is my favorite human, and I like her sister and her mom, too. Females in general are okay. And when that baby lived here (Mom called her my human niece), I let her get away with alot of stuff I normally wouldn't, but she was cute, even for me. I got soft! What can I say?! Truly, I don't like kids or loud people or loud noises. They frighten me! I don't like thunderstorms, either. I put up with the dog. She pummels me daily for no apparent reason. I hog up our bed that Mom bought for us to share, too. Ahh, that thing is great! I'm too big for a regular-sized bed, well that's what Mom says. I can squeeze into one! Mom says she doesn't know how much longer I have (yeah, whatever). I am the alpha animal; I rule this house!
On Monday, August 17, 2009, Mom helped me transition to Rainbow Bridge. I was listening to the vet talk to Mom and then I blinked and awoke to see Weazy and Angel Tod kitty sitting there with outstretched paws. And I was walking perfectly again! No more wobbling and no more pain in my back end. I am perfect again. I looked back and saw Mom weeping over my old body. It was hard to see that, but I tried to tell her I didn't blame her and I love her for setting me free.
Yeah, like I'm gonna do that!

My meow is like a whisper or a simple lip smack - open mouth move. I hardly ever actually make noise, but my mom knows when I'm talking.

After a few days of mourning my loss, Mom really started feeling better. She read alot on the 'Net about her decision to let me go, and so many peeps were pawraying for her and sending good thoughts. And I even showed up in my mom's sister's dreams two nights in a row to tell her, too, that I made it okay and I'm alright now. Mom actually felt peace in her heart.
She started looking on petfinder.com for a new kitty. She said she wasn't replacing me. Well, no one could ever take my place. Duh! MOL! I was one of a kind, fur sure. So she found Bug Bug at the Coastal Pet Rescue, and making a long story short, brought him home last night. He's all black, young and male. Totally different from me! He's been tutered, vaccinated, tattooed and microchipped. He really is sweet, just like I was, and loves to purr, just like I did. See, I'm still there. Here is Bug's page:
I'm glad to see Mom with a smile on her face now. I know she loves me and we are grateful for the 11 years we had together. Yes, we wish it coulda been longer, but that was not the plan and it was decided before I ever came to live with her that it would not be that way. We both knew that. Now I'm at RB with the fastest legs you've ever seen! And watching over my furmily with so much love in my heart. Purrrrrrrrs

I walked right into her bedroom on all my paws, just like any "normal" kitty kat would do, without any spinal cord injury, and showed her I am okay now, free of any pain and all injuries, and doing well at RB. It's beautiful here. All of the angels greeted me with love, including the doggies. Weazy wanted to play immediately coz she got so excited to see me here, but Angel Mr. Tod told her he wanted to show me around first. I've met so many lovely angels.
Thank you to all who've sent gifts, love, prayers, thoughts, hugs and messages to me and Mom. She really feels better this morning after seeing me in her dream last night and all the POP that's been sent her way. We are true believers in POP and are so grateful to all of you. We have the best furiends anyone could ever ask for.
Purrrrrrs....Kitta Angel Baby

This sweet poem was posted in one of the doggies' groups, Schnauzers Rule:
May I Go Now?
May I go now?
Do you think the time is right?
May I say goodbye to pain filled days
and endless lonely nights?
I've lived my life and done my best,
an example tried to be.
So can I take that step beyond
and set my spirit free?
I didn't want to go at first,
I fought with all my might.
But something seems to draw me now
to a warm and loving light.
I want to go
I really do.
It's difficult to stay.
But I will try as best I can
to live just one more day.
To give you time to care for me
and share your love and fears.
I know you're sad and afraid,
because I see your tears.
I'll not be far,
I promise that, and hope you'll always know
that my spirit will be close to you
wherever you may go.
Thank you so for loving me.
You know I love you too,
that's why it's hard to say goodbye
and end this life with you.
So hold me now just one more time
and let me hear you say,
because you care so much for me,
you'll let me go today.
