Arrival Story: We thought it was time to get Mercy a playmate and decided to go to the local Humane Society to look at kittens. They were all so adorable but my husband took a special liking to the tiny, two-pound, whining, and sickly looking kitten named "Henry" who was alone in his cage because his mama and siblings had already been adopted. This poor little baby had also been neutered the day before and had an URI but we wanted to adopt him anyway, so we brought him home, renamed him, and set him up in one of the guest bedrooms to recover. Milo's nose was so runny he was making bubbles when he breathed, but he was otherwise calm and affectionate. We gave him alot of TLC, brought him to see our longtime vet and after he became healthy, he met Mercy. Even at two pounds, he decided right away that this big girl was good for tackling and was usually hanging onto her neck. The two of them became very close.
Bio: Milo was very loving and affectionate with the entire family, including the dogs. The night when our dog Butch passed away at home, Milo was right by his side. When we carried him, he insisted on turning his body so that he could look us square in the eye and lick our faces. His nurturing nature was very important as our kitty family grew, especially for shy little Sofie. Whenever I would open up a can of unsalted green beans for the dogs he would jump up on the kitchen counter because he liked to drink the juice. Milo was always a sweetheart and never once hissed at anything or anybody. He had surgery to remove a bladder stone in late 2006, and in mid-2007, he was diagnosed with Immune-mediated Polyarthritis. UPDATE: Milo passed away suddenly at home at the age of 4 on Thursday, November 1st, 2007, surrounded by the family that he loved and that loved him so much.
Today I celebrated my birthday on Cloud NINE. My angel pals threw me an awesome party and I had a bunch of earth pals who celebrated with me too!
Each comment, pmail and gift you send to me is treasured. It's nice to be remembered on any given day.
Today we also celebrated Angel Wally's birthday as well as Angel Maggie Moo's. I guess you can say we're birthday triplets! My angel dog brother, Cosmo, also celebrated his birthday today with his pals and I heard he had a great time.
After several days of rain, the sun shined bright all day over at my house--our little gift of smiles to my family.
Four years ago, I made my sudden journey to the Bridge. It's a day that will always be remembered, along with the happy times during the four and a half years I spent with my family.
A part of me lives within each of the remaining kitties in the house, with the exception of Pixie, but she's adjusted very well in the family. And, of course, I have a special spot in Mom's and Dad's hearts. They'll always be grateful that I was a part of their lives.
I'm proudest of little Sofie, since she was so attached to me. She's still a little cat but now she's the oldest of the kitties and seems as happy as can be. Go, Sofie!
My family and I thank you for remembering me on my Bridge day with your sweet messages and gifts. They mean alot to us!
