Gotcha Date: May 27th 1977
Birthday: April 15th 1977
Coloration: Gray and White
Likes: He loved cuddling up with his mom and with his sister Jenny
Pet-Peeves: He really didn't have any. He was a very calm and gentle boy and not fussy or demanding.
Favorite Toy: Hairbands, crinkled up paper, plastic bottle caps, homemade toys -- he never showed much interest in cat toys.
Favorite Nap Spot: On my bed or snuggled next to his sister Jenny.
Favorite Food: Turkey
Arrival Story: When I told everyone at work that I was going to a shelter to adopt an adult cat, one of my co-workers, whose cat had just had kittens, asked me to adopt one of her kittens instead. I said yes (in fact, I adopted two kittens from the litter). The kittens were born in April 1977 but were still not old enough to leave their mom at that time, so I waited a few weeks and one day near the end of May she brought Pete into work with her for me to take home. He was about 6 weeks old. It was love at first sight for both of us.
Bio: Pete was my baby. He was an affectionate cuddle-bug with his mom. He liked other people and was friendly but was never very affectionate with anyone else but me. He also loved his sister Jennifer. They were never apart until Pete left for Rainbow Bridge and his sister missed him terribly. He was a large cat but very sweet-natured. I called him my gentle giant. After Pete turned 15, his health deteroriated rapidly and he developed hyperthyroidism and eventually went blind and became senile. He left for Rainbow Bridge a few months after his 16th birthday on July 23, 1993.
Please purr for Alfie♥ Angel, Teddy Bearz, Milo and Ollie’s mommy. She had e.coli and was rushed to the hospital last week, where she spent several days. She was so sick she said she felt like she was going to die. Thankfully, she’s home from the hospital and recovering but not feeling very well. She said it’s going to take quite a bit of time for her to fully recover. She has been coming on Catster occasionally this week but because she still isn’t feeling good and tires very easily, she isn’t up to writing anything in her kitties’ diaries. She asked me to tell you what happened. Please keep Alfie’s mommy in your thoughts, purrs and purryers! We love her and are purring that she gets well soon!
Because of Alfie’s mom’s illness, we’ve decided to announce the remaining Dreamgirl nominees all at one time. This will be our final announcement for this year. The Dreamgirls group nominations threads will remain open for the rest of the year. (We hope members will continue to tell us the names of their Dreamgirls!) Next year (2013) we will resume our Dreamgirl announcements on Valentine’s Day 2013.
Alfie’s mom still wants to make the mementos for the Dreamgirls but the project must wait until she’s feeling better. My mommy could attempt to make them herself BUT the one’s Alfie’s mom makes are so lovely and pretty and mommy knows she’s not up to making anything nice enough to match anything Alfie’s mom makes. We’d rather you have pretty mementos that you can cherish rather than something clumsy my mommy would make. MOL!
Now to our Dreamgirl announcements! Congratulations to all our Dreamgirls (6 yrs & older), Dreamettes (5 years and under) and Angel Dreamgirls!
Oh kitties, we're so sorry to disappoint you once again! Our Dreamgirl announcements are on hold for now. We still have many Dreamgirls to announce and more girls are being nominated every day.
The announcements will resume in May, hopefully on May 1st.
Alfie's mom apologizes and asks for your understanding. She's very busy and is backlogged with things she still needs to catch up on, including the Dreamgirl picture mementos from 2 weeks ago. Plus she's still learning the ins and outs of her new computer and Windows 7. Going from Windows XP to Windows 7 isn't an easy thing to do!
