Arrival Story:
I was going through a lucky streak, having just won over $5000.00 at the local casino, and bought us a black & white shih-tzu puppy. I wanted a cat and decided to look for a black or black & white one, so they would match. LOL. Anyway, it was October and shelters/rescues do not allow the colored cat I was looking for to be adopted due to there's some crazy people wandering around in our world. I went into the cat room at the shelter and I sat on the floor and let the cats/kittens play around me. Lucky, who was 9 months at the time, crawled into my lap, curled up and started to knead my thigh. Well, I was in love. I named her Lucky because we both were lucky at the time. She was scheduled to be PTS that afternoon because she had been at the shelter for two months and our local shelter is a kill shelter.

Bio:
When I first got her, I took her outside on a leash. She learned to walk on that very well. When I moved to the country, she became an indoor/outdoor cat. Now, back in town, she remains inside unless on a leash. Lucky gets along well with dogs, large and small. She used to be best friends with a Bouvier de Flanders. Now, she shares her home and me with a miniater schnauzer named Haley, who came be found at: http://www.dogster.com/dog_page.ph p?j=t&i=24176

One Year Ago...

It's been a year since the Master called me home.
I know that you miss me, Mom, but I am fine, really.
I have made many many new friends. Lots of them you already know.

You would like it here. There's never any cold weather, when it snows (yes, it snows even here MOL) the snow is warm and doesn't stay around. There's just enough to play in.
When it rains, it nourishes the flowers and other plants but we never get wet. Oh, it does make mud for those dogs who like to splash and roll in mud (even here, the dogs are goofy).

There is always a sunbeam to lay in.

You know that I still visit you. Not as often as I did at first, but I'm still there. I mean, how can I totally leave you? You and I share a very special bond, deep within our hearts. I'll always be with you.

I see that you got a new kitten. That is nice. but man, is she ever a rambunctous kid! I am glad that you waited for me to pass over. I never could have tollerated such childish antics!

She is a good kitten, Mom. I like her. I've talked with her a couple of times, telling her the rules. Whether she listened or not, I do not know.

Ooh, I smell a freshly bloomed catnip plant. Gotta go.
I'll talk to you later, Mom.

Hugs, purrs and love,
Lucky

I have been given a special treat and am able to write this short note.

I just want to let my huMom know that I am fine and doing wonderfully.

This is a wonderful place, Mom. You wouldn't believe all of the open spaces we have to run and play in! Trees to climb and hide in, all sorts of little critters to chase and catch (but we never hurt them, because here, that would be wrong). I have made SO many friends! Even kitty friends, something that I would never do when I walked the earth.
In fact, I made a new friend this past week-end. A cute little schnauzer named Sydney. She told me that her huMom knows you! How cool is that?
Sydney was a bit nervous at first but me and the others (boy! are there a lot of others!) showed her around and introduced her to the Master and she settled in quite nicely. She is worried about her huMom, so, if you could, could you tell Christy that Sydney is doing fine?

Mom, I know that your heart is still very heavy because I had to leave you but, please, know that I am doing just fine.
I am able to 'pop' in on you, every once in awhile, to make sure that you are doing OK. I see you sad, so many times, and I do so wish that I could give you a head hug and let you know that everything will be fine, that I am doing well and am happy. Don't get me wrong, I miss you, very much, but, well, things are different now.
I think you know when I am around, for you stop and look and listen. Sometimes, while you sleep, I curl up next you and you reach out to pet me.

It never rains here, but, for some reason, everything is green and the flowers are always in bloom.

Mom, I know that you miss me dreadfully. I also know that you would like to have another kitty in your life. It's OK, Mom. I understand. We both know that no kitty can ever come close to 'replacing' me, after all, I was the bestest kitty to ever walk the earth! MOL*
But, Mom, you have a big enough heart to hold onto me (and Bat and Cubby - who, by the way, send their love) and to share yourself with another kitty.
In fact, I know for certain that there is a special kitty who needs you. You are just too deaf to hear the plaintive mews that are being sent to you. So, clean out those ears and listen for the mews!

I gotta go now, Mom. The Master is calling me for some special one-on-one time.

I love you, Mom.
Head hugs and purrs,
Lucky

P.S.
Guess who I get to sleep with (when I want)? Cricket!!!
Yup, little Cricket met me at the Bridge, when I arrived! It was SO great to see her again! She says 'hi' and sends her love, too.

A VERY sad day

It is with the heaviest of heart that I must say that my dear sweet Lucky passed over the Rainbow Bridge at 11:30pm, Friday, June 22, 2007.

She had been sick for 2 months. The vet said that, short of a bazzillion diagnostic tests, there was nothing to be done. That she was just wearing out.

I shall miss my Lucky cat as I have never missed another living soul.
She was my heart.
