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 However my cat Diogi became very depressed & withdrawn without either of his siblings.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.
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.
I am 5 yrs old today! Thankfully I have the 1st April birthday (except fur my sisfur T C who is an angel now)
In 5 days it is my sisfur Pawlette's birthday, then Lolly on the 29th & Midnight on the 30th. I guess we should just keep the pawty going huh?
PLEASE click on the link below, READ the whole thing & do what you will with the information. Susan Thixton owner of "Truth about Pet Food" states this is one of the most shocking reports she's ever seen. It applies to both cat & dog food, both wet & dry. :( Heavy Metals found in pet food in ALARMING amounts
