Arrival Story: Zippie had a sister he never met. She was but one of thousands that were sick or died due to the pet food recall of 2007. I had lost another cat (Spotty) just 9 months prior to losing T C. My heart was broken; I felt guilty that I had killed my baby girl. I had no intention of getting another cat. However my cat Diogi became very depressed & withdrawn without either of his siblings. He was now an only cat. I was afraid that that I would lose him too; so I began actively looking for a kitten, not just any kitten; but an orange kitten. I was about to give up when a friend of mine mentioned that a mutual friend who only has dogs found her dog chasing a pregnant feral cat who was trying to give birth. She & her husband trapped her & took her to a safe location to finish giving birth. Zippie is one of five kittens she had. Diogi & his best furriend Chip decided on his name; it will be Zippie after Greg Zipadelli (Crew chief for our favorite Nascar driver Tony Stewart), also because he zips everywhere he goes.
Bio: Zippie turned 1 year old on 4/15/2008. He is such a sweetie! He caught the garter at his sisfurr (T C)'s wedding; knowing he is too young to be married he instead asked the love of his kitten life (Laurie) to be his girlfurriend. She in turn accepted. **watches as Zippie does his little "Zippie dance**
In about 3-1/2 weeks Zippie will be a big brother; well physically anyway. We already have a page for this little sweetie who will go by the name of Lollycat. I will no doubt get tons of pictures to document this event.
It seems like a couple of weeks ago that I was just a tiny kitten who had just found my furever home & like yesterday when I became a big brofur. I just realized that now I am the MAN cat in my house (does that mean I have to be "responsible"? *giggles* at the thought
Soooooooo my mommy has a friend that loves kitties very very much...but she is allergic to them. Still she comes over many times a week to snuggle with & pet us, even though her eyes get very puffed up & she can't breathe.
Hers is always telling my mom that she is going to "steal" one of us, but mom never believes her.
One time hers tried to steal Pawlette, she wrapped her up in her shirt & walked outside. When Pawlly saw where she was she made her take her back inside.
Anyway so last night her & mom & my human brother were smoking a cigarette outside & mom went inside to get a drink of water. When she came back out my brother was kind of laughing, but wouldn't say why. Her friend had gone to her house for a minute & came back with hers doggy named Ziggy. Ziggy was looking in my house at Lolly & Pawlly when mom asked my brother "Where is Zippie?"
He said probably hiding from the dog, but mom didn't believe him.
Do you want to know where I was REALLY at? Hers STOLE me & took me to hers house & hers doggy wanted to EAT me so I smacked him very hard & meowed very loud to make her take me HOME.
Anyway that was my big adventure! Today I am just sleeping
Who knew that the itty bitty kitten I used to be would be such a BIG lovebug 6 years later? Tonight mom is giving me my own can of white albacore tuna for my dinner.
I told her I'd like a cake too but I don't think she's listening.
