Arrival Story:
She was dumped 12 miles from her home in the desert heat among the coyotes. She was smart enough to use a dog door to go into my daughter's house and they found her asleep in their bed. My daughter is allergic to cats and asked me to take her to the pound - I kept her overnight and she has been here ever since. She was microchipped and we know she was dumped from her previous owner's address. My vet called the owner - she said she would call back and never did.

She is named Chocolat as she is really a deep rich brown though she looks black in many lights. It is easy to see why she was dumped as she is a thorough pest but she can purr and be very loving when she wants something! Though she was microchipped she had not been spayed and I soon learned she was pregnant - she had one kitten that did not survive - probably because she was way too young. She was very ill for awhile but is happy and healthy now and gets into everything. Her photo is of her In Sync impression - she likes the bathroom sink as it is cool. When she first came she beat up and sent away three ferral cats at least three times her size (all her cuts and tears have since healed nicely) She coexists with 4 dogs and another cat. While she hisses at three of the dogs and Tigger the cat she loves on Goldie, the blind, deaf cocker spaniel.

Chocolat's Adventures

Catster still broken on Firefox Browser

Ever an optimist I tried Catster again today to see if they had ever bothered their shirts to fix it so it would work with Firefox - some progress has been made asd I can now see the diary on Catster but still cannot see photos. Well one can always hope. Actually Dogster, though it works, has gotten so messed up and mixed up and takes so long to do anything on I can't use it much either. Too bad as it was really a wonderful thing when they first started.

For those nice people who have asked to be friends with Chocolat - my catster page has been broken for some time (Dogster is okay) and I am waiting until it gets fixed so I can see your lovely kitties and then I will reply to your requests. Thank you all for wanting to be friends with Chocolat! She is doing well again - they were eating Iams chicken and gravy when the recall came and both Chocolat and Tigger were ill but now that we are off the food they are well again - poor Chocolat - she must be down to just a couple of lives left!


Chocolat is Well

I wrote in December that Chocolat was very poorly. She was having a lot of hairball trouble. About three months ago I started her on Purina One Dry Cat Food Hairball formula and she is doing wonderfully - the scratching her back photo is a recent one of her where she has plumped back up. And she has endless energy - I sit in my chair at night and drop the newspaper on the floor as I read the various sections and she goes absolutely ape with it - running and jumping and tearing it to bits. It is quite a mess to clean up but I don't mind as it means she is quite healthy! She has toys but doesn't play with them - her favorite things in the whole world are the newspapers and an empty toilet paper roll! Figures, just like children - buy them a toy and they play with the box!
