Arrival Story:
Armani and his siblings, Gucci and Prada, were born to a feral mama on top of a two story building in Las Vegas. One night a loud electrical storm passed through and badly frightened them. A nice lady heard their desparate cries for help as they were hanging over the edge of the roof and called a local rescue group which foster mom was managing the phone lines at the time. Before help arrived, Gucci fell off of the roof. They were all rescued by sun-up. Their feral mama was trapped, spayed, and released back to her neighborhood. The nice lady who phoned the rescue calls her Mama and feeds and cares for her. Prada was recently adopted to a nice family. Gucci eventually recovered from his fall and now Armani and Gucci are looking for their forever homes, hopefully together as they are inseparable. Both are very sweet natured, very healthy, neutered, current on shots, tested negative for FIV/Leuk, and are AVID micro-chipped. A more quiet atmosphere would be perfect for them. .....Update...... Gucci was adopted to a loving home in December of 2007, leaving Armani alone and now in search of his furr-ever loving home.

UPDATE: March 2008 - Armani has had a bad reaction to his recent booster/rabies shots. Story is in his Diary :( I will update his story when he recovers and goes back to the vet. UPDATE: Due to Armani's bad reaction to the booster shots, he is now listed as a 'special needs' kitty. He has been diagnosed with Polycythemia. He needs a 'blood-letting' procedure done every 6 months............ Armani is a sweet and playful character. He can be such a clown. :) We believe he has the same daddy as Gucci because their markings are exactly the same..... Armani just has an entire 'suit' of them and is short haired like his mama. He's a tuxedo kitty with the most bold markings we've ever seen. Armani doesn't like being picked up too much, but he loves to be pet on and sit near or on his human's lap. And, naturally he loves for his humans to interactively play with him. He is socialized with other cats and hasn't shown any 'dominant male' tendencies. He gets along with everybody. He is used to a semi-quiet atmosphere and is social with people he doesn't know after he checks them out for a minute............................ .... Only adoptable within 200 miles of Las Vegas, Nevada unless special conditions apply.

Lives Remaining:

Dear Diary,

I hope all of my Catster friends know that I wish them a Blessed and Happy Holiday Season!

It took a minute, but I’ve adjusted quite well into my new home and my new family is just wonderful! Everyone involved in my rescue four years ago and everyone involved in my care since then are just thrilled that I have finally found my forever and loving home! *purrs*

My latest update from my family is that I am doing well. I recently went in for my 6 month check-up and all looks good…. well, except that I have once again gained some weight. *blushes* Last time it wasn’t my fault, this time it appears that I am being a bit ‘piggy’ with the yummy food that I have access to! Mol! My mom states that I have become the ‘keeper of the food’ and my most favorite place to hang out is in the center of it all. What can I say, my foster mom only fed holistic food….. now I have yummy good food! *purrs loudly*

My new brofur Tiger, the one who resembled my real brofur Gucci, passed away a few weeks ago. *sad purrs* It was discovered that he had mouth cancer and he is now running pain-free and at peace at the Bridge. My mom and dad miss him so much, I try my best to comfort them! *gentle hugs*

I now hang out with my tortie sisfur, Tikvah, and my other furmate, Punkin. Life is good and I am grateful for my new family!

Merry Christmas and many Blessings for the New Year!

Purrs, Love & Headbonks,

Dear Diary,

Wow, where do I begin? Suddenly I am no longer known as Armani~adoptable~….. But as Armani~ADOPTED~ Not too sure about this, as I have been with my foster mom for the first four years of my life and my world as I knew has just been rocked.

A knock late one night on foster mom’s door led to us meeting. I had been transported quite a ways to the town she lives in to be placed in a temporary foster home only to discover that there had been a mix-up and there was no actual foster home for my siblings and I. Later that night, my new foster mom’s agreement to, “Oh sure, they can stay here for one night until this is worked out”, led to her becoming known as a ‘long-term’ foster home as each of us had many obstacles to overcome before we could find our forever homes. My fur-sis, Prada, and my bestest buddy and bro-fur, Gucci, eventually found their forever homes, I however did not.

Listed as ‘special’ and ‘needy’ and ‘no small children’ kept me low on Petfinder’s radar list of potential adopters. Time went by, years went by with still nobody suitable interested in me. Then suddenly a nice family accidentally came across my Petfinder page/bio, they read all about me and decided that they could offer me a loving and forever home! Mom awoke to an e-mail message and phone message left by my now new family on June 28th. Excitement at first, both foster mom and my new family experienced ‘cold feet’ and tried to back out.. but that wasn’t meant to be!

On July 2nd my Auntie K and foster mom took me on a road trip to go check out my potential new home and family and they adopted me that day!

My new mom, Elaine, reports that I’ve already met my new doc and, other than my Polycythemia condition, that I am a healthy boy. She’s been instructed to bring me in for a check up at least every 6 months, along with doing the weekly dehydration test. I have a new Norwegian Forest Cat brofur, that looks a lot like my real brofur Gucci, and a new tortie sisfur. I think they like me!! ~purrs~

Hugs & Love,
~not adoptable because I’ve found my forever home at last~

Dear Diary,

It’s been along time since my last entry, but I want to assure everyone that I am doing well. I still have not found my forever home, but I am still hanging out at foster mom’s house waiting for the purrfect family to adopt me. Foster mom has temporarily removed me from Petfinder as she wants to rewrite my story on there. She still had my original ‘special needs’ story on there where I needed weekly sub-q fluids and my blood-letting procedure done every few months.

Since that icky black widow bit me I have greatly improved with my condition, known as Polycythemia. Today I no longer need sub-q fluids and my last vampire ’ blood-letting’ procedure was performed over one year ago!! *grins* I still can never have booster shots again, so I have to be listed as a special needs kitty, but not near as ‘special’ as when she first posted my original story.

On FB foster mom stated that I am not too happy with my current living conditions. I was completely attached to my brofur, Gucci-Goo, and since he was adopted out I cannot seem to find another fur here to cuddle with and be best buds with. Muppet and I were buds until she had her surgeries and she started feeling better, now she wants nothing to do with me. *pouts* Sampson goes out of his way to intimidate and pick on me, and even though she can’t see too well, Nakita does too. Chico is cool, although I know that he is a tolerant kitty and attempts to put up with every fur. Foster mom still hopes that I can find my purrfect forever home where I have another kitty, or doggie, to snuggle with and be best buds with. I feel pretty much alone most of the time and kind of stressed-out living here. I still love to play and have the loudest purr anyone has ever heard! I am also a beautiful and big Norwegian/domestic short hair mix, a gentle giant.

So thank you so much for the kind ‘anonymous rosette’ sending me pop and purrs! ~big hugs~ I really appreciate them, although I wish that I could thank you properly. And Muppet would love to know who smacked her with an anonymous snow ball!! Mol! We had a few other furs asking if it was us who were throwing the snowballs… Nope… not us! Just sitting back and waiting to find out who the culprit is so we can ‘pay’ them back!! *giggles*

Big Prayers for Ka-Zar and our Australian friends, and also for all of the ill kitties, doggies, and those hearts missing a furry loved one tonight.*gentle hugs*

Headbonks and Purrs,
*adoptable at last*
