Arrival Story:
I rescued Muppet from a huge cat sanctuary where the cats had been left to starve. Several hundred did not make it and many more were critical when we arrived to try and help the end of May 2007. Muppet and precious Beannie Baby were among the most critical too and the heartbreaking day when Beannie Baby died from kidney failure I scooped up Muppet and brought her home. I didn't want to let her out of my sight. She weighed only 4 pounds, she was emaciated and dehydrated. She could barely walk and she looked like a puppet on strings when she tried. It's been over 3 months now, and Muppet weighs in at 6 pounds. Still needs to gain a couple more pounds. Her kidneys are thankfully hanging in there, but she's still having some problems with her ears. For the first month after we brought her home, she slept by the food and water bowls. She didn't want her food and water to ever get 'lost' again. She's learned to trust again that the food and water will always be there, so now she likes to sleep on a bed or by a window. Her personality is starting to come out and she is such a sweet little character. We love her so much.

Later, in mid July, Best Friends thankfully took over the sanctuary thanks to my pleading phone calls, and they've already adopted out over 100 cats. About 550 cats still need to find homes. We have now officially adopted Muppet!! Yeah! I named her Cassidy in June when I first took her to the vet, but 'Muppet' seems to fit her better. On Catsters, Best Friends has posted some of the beautiful cats from the sanctuary for adoption. They accidentally put my Cassidy/Muppet's picture on another cat's story. They do have another Tortie that they named Cassidy also who is up for adoption. But that adorable little kitty that I'm holding in their photo is our precious baby. :) The photo I added where she's sitting on a chair I took the end of May 2007 out at the sanctuary. Muppet, as most of the cats, was emaciated and almost bald from malnutrition, mange and ringworm. There will be justice for the cats in this horrible animal cruelty and neglect case at this sanctuary. I will be one of the many to testify to make sure the persons responsible hopefully get what they deserve. .......................... UPDATE 12-02-07 - What can one say about Best Friends Animal Society? After they arrived, 748 cats were recovered and 684 of those survived thanks to BF's at this nightmare animal place. (They were awarded by the court another 114 animals,that they flew to Utah, when the former owner's home was raided by Animal Control.) In all, over 300 sadly did not survive due to neglect, and in the end starvation and dehydration, by the previous owners. But as of today, out of the 684 cats that BF's endlessly and diligently worked to save, only 200 or so remain that need to be adopted in to their forever new homes. That's close to 500 cats saved, at times to the tune of $50,000 a week in vet care expenses, and placed into fantastic new homes!! This horrible, so called sanctuary, known as F.L.O.C.K., For Love Of Cats & Kittens (Now rightfully renamed 'For Lack Of Care & Kindness') is now known as among the worst ever recorded hoarding, animal neglect and cruelty cases ever discovered in our Nation's history. We are STILL WAITING for the D.A. to press charges................ As for Little Muppet, she's doing better. Her right ear still bothers her a bit from time to time, but other than that her health has greatly improved. Her newest thing is that she's discovered how to play and that it's fun. She still will freeze and stare at her feet if another cat comes close to her. She has recently warmed up enough to trust one kitty, Armani, a huge breakthrough for her. (Thank you Armani for being so gentle and patient with her) She's such a doll and we love her so much. :) (Further updates are in her diary )********************************* ********************************** ********************************** ********************************** **** It's been so many years since I posted the above, I wanted to give an update to those who are new reading Mupp's story. It was determined in 2008 that Muppet had irreversible ear canal damage from untreated ear infections while out at flock and was suffering as a result from it. It was recommended by many vets that I 'set her free from her pain.' I ended up at a surgeon's office in Las Vegas, NV who promised me that he could 'fix' her problems, but for a range out of my pocketbook. Remember I had spent huge bucks just getting her to this point after smuggling her off of that icky property. Many on Catster heard her plea, and in early December 2008 Muppet had her lifesaving surgeries thanks to all of them!! I kindly, with HQ's thumbs up, asked for Bucks to be placed in Muppet's Bucket, and a miracle happened with the forming of 'Muppet's Bucket' and the wonderful 'Muppetheads!' Overwhelmed with kindness & gratitude, Muppet had her surgeries! All did not go as well as expected, but these surgeries did save her life. Today...over three years later, Muppet is finally pain-med free and doing well, all thanks to her beloved Muppetheads! Her kidneys are not so well, but every ounce of Mupp's being makes up for that! She is all love, curiosity, and definitely keeps me on my toes with her adventurous spirit! ********************************** ********************************** **As for flock.... I, as many, were called to testify in the court case. It was thrown out on a mere technicality, the hoarders walked free and immediately started a 'sanctuary for cats' all over again. ********************************** ********************************** **Many of the cats adopted after the rescue of them have not survived, mostly from kidney failure and other starvation/dehydration/disease issues. But those who have survived, have made all efforts worthwhile! :)******************************** ******************************* NOTE: In late 2005 I was literally shoved into a psychic's reading at a fundraiser for a friend of mine. The psychic was 'right on with everything she said about me' except I had to differ on one thing she stated.... she said *with overwhelming emotion* that "she saw me surrounded by literally hundreds, upon hundreds, upon hundreds of cats!!" I just laughed and said that she must be picking up on somebody else. Then in early 2007 the flock disaster hit... and this sadly became the truth!

Muppet's New Beginnings

Success.... for a minute!

Dear Diary,

After being unable to add or rearrange any pictures in my room in 2014, meomy had success today! She was able to sneak in three of my photos to my basement before the icky PF's (Police Fleas) caught her and kicked her out. They keep telling meomy that I am not her cat and that she has no business trying to change things in my room! Ooh, ooh! Really? *giggles*

Meomy and I are so grateful for the three pictures hidden in my basement. So when we thought the PF's weren't looking, we tried to quickly rearrange some of my wall pics and discovered that they locked the basement door!! Aah, aah! *sighs* Maybe one day they will remember that I am meomy's kitty and let her freely romp around my room again. *winks*

Purring hard for Mr. D to recover, and for Dar on her loss of sweet Pie!:(

Ooh Ooh, Aah, aah!
Hugs & Love
Lil' Muppet


Bringing in the New Year!

Dear Diary,

My New Beginnings for the New Year 2015;

Meomy has a new job that pays well with full benefits and is THREE minutes away from our home! All of my 'backseat driving' must have paid off! Mol! No more commuting, no more long 12 hour shifts plus driving time away from us, no more 'zombie meomy!' Hurray!

Sampson has gained weight and has been grooming himself once again! Go Sam! Just when meomy was told to expect the worst, silly Sampson spun around and said, 'Say what? It's not my time!!' *happy purrs*

Queen Nakita has suddenly started eating 'wet food!' Meomy has forever been trying to convince her that is is much better for her than the dry stuff. Nakita doesn't always eat the wet stuff meomy offers us, but at least now she comes and gives it a good sniff and sometimes eats it.

Chico seems to have made his peace with Turbo passing on. *hugs for him* He keeps busy looking out for Grama's kitty, Whisper, and for the rest of us too.
Meomy is amazed at how intuitive he is and has saved us all many times from harm when we're in the outback! She says she could write a book on him!

Whisper is still with us for now. My Auntie M says that on her next vacation days that she will come take her to live with her in Cali. I will miss her as she is the only other kitty who loves to play. For awhile I stopped playing, but now I once again love to grab my mousie toys and tumble around with them, just like her! Gee, must be the ol' croud I dwell with that made me forget to play! MOL!!

As for me, I will miss 'working' with meomy! Meomy never made me go to work with her, when I wanted to I would be sitting at the door showing her I was wanting to go. So many times her co-workers would be begging her to bring me to work. She always said that it was up to me. I did hear meomy's new co-worker talking about the 'resident doggy.' Hmmmm..... Perhaps I could become the 'resident kitty?!' **winks** I am so grateful for my health and I'm forever grateful to the Muppetheads!!

I wish every fur and their family a Blessed Christmas & New Year!

Ooh ooh, Ahh, ahh!
Hugs & Love
Lil Muppet
** My Catster room will not allow me to add or switch around photos. That's ok, I'm so grateful that my friends are still around Catsterland. *hugs*


This Backseat Driver misses you.....

Dear Diary,

I’ve missed you and all of my friends so much. I am so grateful that Catster HQ has worked so hard on all of the flea issues that plagued Catsterland for quite some time. After sitting desolate & growing cobwebs for almost 8 months, my room is now clean, bug free and is re-decorated once again! *Purrs* I chose my ‘Love Theme’ for now because I really do love Catster & all of my friends here. *hugs*

Naturally, after being absent for so long, there is a lot my family and I have missed and have to try and catch up on. First of all I want to say how much I missed my beau, Greystone, and was devastated to hear that his beautiful fur-sis, Stormy, had recently crossed to the Bridge. Catster has brought so many special kitties and their humans into our lives, and Bobbie and her kitties have become like family to us. RIP Storm cloud & prayers of comfort for your sweet mom’s heart.

A shout-out to the Muppetheads whom I adore, “I am doing very well these days! I wish my meomy could stay home more, but I have adjusted to her work schedule. She no longer works zombie nights, but days and I once again am able to cuddle with her at nights. ~purrs~ Now and then meomy takes me with her to her work. I ride on the console next to her and I try my best to not be a backseat driver! Mol! ~She hit a wild burro and totaled her sports car, she hit a bunny straight from Area 51 the size of a dog and it did $1300 damage to her new car, she then hit a big rock and damaged one of her wheels! Geez, it’s kind of hard not telling meomy to quit this job and get a new one closer to home!!! Mol! Now a fuel leak was discovered that could have caught the entire car, meomy and me on fire! Needless to say, the dealership is fixing the car for free and I am no longer able to go to work with meomy until it is fixed! Ooh ooh, that‘s fine with me! I do miss all of the attention I get there though. I feel like a therapy cat when I‘m there.“ ~

Promise I will romp around Catster more often now. My heart has missed and thought about you all!

Hugs & Love
Ooh ooh, Aah aah,
Lil' Muppet
