Arrival Story: She showed up on my porch in Oct. of 98. She had hair missing and scabs and bumps all over her body. Turns out she had serious allergies. We call her the million dollar baby because she bit into an electrical cord, got into a fight with something and kept the wound a secret until it had festered. All this time she had allergies and had to have shots on a regular basis. Then when we moved into our new house in 2002 she got drywalled into another new house that was being built behind us. She was there for two weeks before we found her. The vet didn't think she would make it but she did, other than being dehydrated and underweight she had no lasting problems. She doesn't stray far from her house anymore.
Bio: She's a persistant pain in the hiney sometimes but we love her. I've tried to make her an indoor cat but she proceeded in trying to destroy our living room. Now that we have a doggie door for our dogs she uses that just as much as they do.
Hey Callie, it's Mom, just wanted to let you know how much we miss you. Your dad and I keep forgeting you're not there and we would try to let you out in the morning or to look for you so you didn't get shut up on the bedroom closet, again. Then the Friday after Thanksgiving we were sitting in the living room and we saw and felt you. You rubbed against your dad's leg and I saw you walk across our living room floor. Were you saying goodbye to us? We loved you and miss you so much, but feel you're in heaven looking out for us.
Callie was lost in a freak accident Thursday evening. She tried to scoot under the garage door opener just inches before it closed and didn't make it. She was a tough old broad and we miss her very much. My heart is aching now and I can only hope she realized how much her dad and I loved her. Bye Baby!
I went in last week and had a "senior screening" done at the vet's office. First off who are they calling senior? Secondly it was an evil process with poking, prodding and blood taking, they actually stuck a thermometer up you know where, most uncivilized.
Basically I'm in great shape except for my urine PH, it's was way too high. So they put me on prescription cat food. This stuff is nasty and therefore I refuse to eat it. But mom isn't letting me slide because she says it's too important to my health. So I go as long as I can and then when I realize she's not giving in I eat it, yuck!
If you read my brother Wade's diary you'll see that she's torturing the two dogs with "healthy" food too. I heard dad say he was worried she's going to start making him eat healthy also.
