Ears- I love human's ears...I sit and purr and look at them and then jump to touch them! Thank I sit back and purr at them and touch them again...sometimes I try and bite them. I am obsessed with ears! They are awesome!! Sunggling with DAD!!
I hate it when I can't find someone's lap to snuggle in...I will try and try and try every lap there is in hopes that someone has time or says yes. BIGGEST IS DOGS!!
Ears, the laser pointer, fuzzy mice, shiney things like jewelry
Favorite Nap Spot:
On dad's chest-- it's the best and he gives the best pettings. I like to sleep on the top of the fridge when we have an extra dog in the house! That is my latest hot spot to sit and watch my people and place.
Wellness cat pouches! It's so healthy for me! I also love milk but have to get it sparingly.
Ear hunting- purring so loud you can hear it across the room! It can be more of a chirp...
Mommy decided me and Mitz couldn't be separated and I have really taken a big liking and interest in Dad. So I get to stay here forever!
On August 27th, 2007- me, Mitzy, and Frankie all tested positive for FELK. Mom decided then and there she would keep us despite the heartache and tough times that may or may not lie ahead.
Me and Mitz and Frankie all tested positive for Feline Leukemia. Mom is working very hard to keep us healthy and hopefully turn it around. If you have any advice for her, she would love to hear it!
I was found in the burn pile at the local Coop w/ my brother and sister! Some of the men who work their took us out before they burned it!! Then they called our mommy and she came picked us up! We have been bottle fed and now we are eating on our own! I am tiger stripped w/ calico colors- a little orange but mostly gray and white.
I was found in a cardboard box in a burn barrell w/ my brother Buggy and my sister Mitzy. They have thumbs- wierd! We were about a week old and my mom took us home and bottle fed us and raised us! Buggy got adopted by this awesome lady and me and Mitz are now living w/ mom at home w/ our brother from another mother Frankity Frank- the Frankmaster. I think we are just going to stay here w/ mom. She was trying to find me a home, but w/ the leukemia and all, she would rather take care of us and keep us w/ her.
Give me some ears and lap and I'm fine!

My little Maggie Mae-
I miss you so much. I have so much to say and don't know how or where I will ever be able to let you know how much I love you and miss you! You were my beautiful peaches and so precious to me. We had a wonderful year together and I hate how it ended so soon and how it hurts.
I brought you in my first kitties ever in my life, first cats, and bottle fed at almost two weeks old. Even then you were a pistol-- hissing at me when I would come to feed you. But soon you knew I was your new "mommy" and I was feeding you. It was so scarey for me because I didn't know anything about kitties.
Then I almost lost you when we were weaning you- remember that? You took a big bite of that food and got it completely stuck. You were choking and no air was coming out. I panic and have never felt so helpless in my life and it was my first kitty heimlich ever. I remember after we got it moving I held you upright for three hours on the couch because I was scared it would move the wrong way. I was so scared I would lose you and you were so exhausted and just slept. But we made it then...just not now.
It's been so wonderful having you. Daddy misses your roll, you sitting on his bills while he's trying to do them, I miss you purring next to me at night all snuggled in, protesting anytime I moved and inch and disturbed you. I miss you begging to go outside. Then rolling around on the warm cement when we did. I miss you chasing the laser pointer and putting the kitties in their place.
I miss you begging for dinner, breakfast, treats. I miss coming home to you and waking up to you.
I know I have other kitties here to take care of but they aren't mine. You were mine. I love them but not like I love you. I hate it here now, it's so lonely. I am not as rushed to come home anymore. People don't know how special you were to me and the bond we had and how I thought of you all day long and talked of you and loved you.
I had all these plans for when Maggie feels better, when Maggie gets better. I had treats for you when you mouth didn't hurt anymore, special crunchies for when you could eat crunchies again. Toys you would play with when you felt better. But we never got there and it hurts. I know I can give them to these kitties here but it's not right and it's empty. It so sad and empty.
I thought when we tested negative for FELV again we were safe. But I guess you are never safe for FELV when you truly have it. The doctor thought we could stop the supplements since you didn't have it according to blood work. I wish we hadn't. It is and was possible for you to revert back to positive if we stopped it and I guess that's what happened. Do you think if we kept on it, you would still be here?
When you first came down w/ ulcers, we thought it was a nasty virus...just not FELV...but they wouldn't go away. You would start to feel better on prednisone but once we weaned you off you would get worse and we would have to restart. And you couldn't be on prednisone forever because of your immune system.
I know you hated the baths mommy gave you but loved the afterwards when I would brush you snuggle you. I loved to snuggle you after baths and keep you dry. I had to give you baths because you couldn't clean yourself...I hope you know that...I think deep down you liked them you were just being a stinker.
So we started you on prednisone this last time again...you were down to about three pounds though. You were looking better but I knew it was just the prednisone. Then things started w/ Mitzy and they drew blood on her, positive for FELV. And I knew. I knew you both had it again...I was trying to be blind to it and save you. I didn't want to lose you Maggie.
I needed you so much and need you still. But I saw how you were fighting and only happy when w/ me. Then I saw your potty and reddish and stinky it was and I knew we were starting to lose a bigger battle than just mouth ulcers. I didn't want to wait until you were done w/ your prednione because I didn't want you start feeling yucky again. So that is why I chose when I did w/ your sister. I wanted you to be peaceful.
I came home early Monday so we could sit outside-- your favorite thing. I know you had fun but I think you also knew it was the last. Instead of exploring you just laid by my in the grass and rested and purred. I wanted to make sure I had enough time to tell you how much I love you and need you and will miss you.
I am glad you went peacefully my little peaches. It is what you deserved. Not so young but no one could help us at this point. You were wonderful in my life.
Maggie Mae, I love you so much and miss you so much. I cry everynight and every morning- I hate the emptiness here and the hurt and the tears. But they don't stop- they just sit in my heart like a lead weight.
Thank you for your love little peaches, and your purrs. Our bond was deeper than anyone can know. You had a soul despite would people will say and you should me everyday your capacity to love and be loyal and sweet. I will love you forever, and there will never be another you and no one can ever fill the void in my heart and life.
You and Mitzy were the biggest part of my life, the best part of my life, the joy in my life.
I thought we would be able to win this war for Frankie- I thought we had one. I feel so defeated and cheated. I hope you are resting and waiting for me-- I will wait and watch for you when the time comes.
I hope you understand that it was for the best and you know that I love you. I would have given you the world if I could have. I gave you my best little peaches and you gave me yours. Then I gave you to God so he can hold you while we wait-- do you roll for him little girl. I feel I can not say enough to express what I feel.
I love you Maggie Mae- I love you forever and always- I miss you w/ all my heart and soul. Love you- Mom

Well- mom thinks and hope I am getting better. My poops are a little more solid. I still have my appetite and don't look so skinny and am not as dehydrated.
It was awesome. Mom gave me the best brushing today I could hardly contain myself. I kept rubbing all over the brush trying to get more and was purring so loud I was chirping!
Then I did "the roll" right into mom and just laid there and enjoyed my tummy being brushed.
PS- I have heard some talk of Demi the little Yorkie going to live somewhere else- keep your paws crossed everyone!
