Silver Tabby

Sleeping, strolling, being carried around on my shoulder. Stealing Cammi's feather toys.

He gets irritated when his siblings Ryan or Cammi won't go to bed...Scottie is usually forced to smack the two down to get them to go night-night. Unfortunately, Ryan is getting a bit too big for successful smackdowns!

Favorite Toy:
Scottie is a catnip junkie ... he loves carrying his catnip "babies" around the house.

Favorite Nap Spot:
He's an on the bed, on the pillows type of napper, if the sun hits the area, that's even better. He's also fond of supervising my work from atop the computer or from the back of the sofa.

Favorite Food:
Scottie gets Gerber meat baby food daily with his lysine to help keep his herpes in check. He's also addicted to Greenies, aka "kitty crack."

Scottie can talk while carrying a catnip baby in his mouth.


Arrival Story:
Scottie was one of five kittens born in my closet, the only shorthair and the only spotted silver tabby. I had no intention of keeping him, but he's so full of personality and kindness, he wormed his way into my heart.

Scottie has chronic herpes. He's also a very kind and caring cat who stays very close to me. Daily diary pick on November 11,2007, February 20 and October 1, 2008. Finally! Effuryone knows about Ryan and Matt and Cammi, but not me!!!

I am sorry to report that Scottie died in January. He'd escaped from my apartment at the end of May and went poof. I believe someone took him in—for awhile.

Scottie fought FHV all of his life. He always got sick in the winter. A week before Christmas, he was picked up by animal control, turned in because he was "sick." It took about 10 days to find me through his microchip—my fault for not updating my info after moving in early November.

He had a nasty URI and was not eating. I took him home to assist feed (something I had to do during the winter usually anyway) and to the vet for antibiotics. Despite out best efforts, he died shortly after I made an attempt to assist feed him. I sat with him and told him it was okay to go, and he drew his last breath. He is buried in my backyard on a 1/4 acre lot.

I miss the spoiled, fussy little bugger.

Cathy, Scottie's mom

Everyone knows I'm an FHV+ kitteh and how a grain-free diet is best for us. But I refuse to eat really healthy food and I won't eat wet food.

Until lately. Mom found a new brand called Blue Buffalo and I like the crunchies and I like the wet food, but only if it's all mushed up and the consistency of human baby food. So far I like the turkey flavor best, but rumor is I'm going to get duck in a little while.

I like it enough Mom will slip my lysine into the food, and I lap it right up. Yum!


I got to go for a stroll!!!

Mom is trying to get herself back into shape after dealing with her back problem. She felt good enough today that she thought she might want to take one of us strolling! Then she learned a dear friend's kitty, a black and white longhaired kitty named Sprocket, went to the Bridge today. He had cancer in his jaw that was making it hard for him to open his mouth to eat, and the tumor put pressure on one of his ocular nerves and made him blind in one eye. He was 16 years old.

So Mom got sad and decided she wanted some kitty strolling time to clear her brain. She took out Big Pink and thought she'd take a tuxedo cat—Ryan or Cammi—in honor of Sprockey. But those two fools went poof! and I jumped into Big Pink all by myself and sat down, ready to go.

We didn't go super-far because Mom's hip hurts for some reason, but we were out for about 30 minutes. I love being pushed in the stroller—I sit up straight and tall and tabby, and like to look around at the birds, and squirrels, and even the people.

When we got back, Cammi was whining for food, and I got to tell everyone about our stroll. I had mom all to myself!

RIP dear Sprocket. Your mommy worked so hard to keep you happy and healthy, and she gave you the most difficult gift our humans can give us. When you run into Elliott, please tell him we all think about him lots, especially Mom.
