Arrival Story:
When we lived in North Carolina for a year, we attempted to adopt a 120 lb white German Shepherd. After he did over $400 in damage in two hours (while we were out), we found him a good home with a LARGE yard and went to the shelter to get a cat. It was dinnertime for the cats, and Kas was the ONLY one who actually stopped eating to check us out and make friends, so she is the one that came home with us.

While Kas was born and (mostly) raised in North Carolina, she currently makes her home with us in the NW suburbs of Chicago; and we hope she will relocate with us to southern Florida in the next year!

My little Kasidy-girl just had not been herself the past few days; she wouldn't sleep by me, she wouldn't headbutt me or lick the heck out of me (something unique to her, which earned her the nicknames Headbutter and Kiss-Kiss)...so I loaded her in her carrier and took her with me to pick up the kids from school, talking to her the whole way. I had my fingers laced through the grate of the door and the entire way to the school, all she did was headbutt and kiss, as if she was saying that it was okay to let her go.

I had the vet check her first, before making the final decision - and my instincts were right on (they usually are with cats, not tooting my own horn but it IS true LOL). Her tiny body was just wasting away - in the past month she's lost another pound, bringing her below 7 (we had gotten her back up to almost 8 after her abscess drainage surgery). She was off balance and it was obvious her entire back end was hurting her. The vet palpated her and said that her kidneys were definitely in a bad state, probably about 80% shut down now. I gave the word - and she got the injection then when she began to administer it, Kas just lay there not fighting (not at all normal for her). She was gone before the vet had pushed the entire dose - so I knew it was the right thing to do. I just wish it didn't hurt so da**ed much. The vet actually thanked me for taking care of her all this time; and even hugged me afterward. They will have her cremated; and I took home her little collar and a cutting of her fur for my cat-keepsake box.

RIP Kasidy Yates (04/15/98 - 02/06/09). You were only with us a short eleven years; but you will live forever in our memories and in our hearts. Play happily at the Bridge, free of your pain, until we can be reunited - we will love you and remember you forever.

I've been tagged by Gypsy. So here goes.

The rules of the game are:

Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Cats who are tagged need to write on their diary about the seven things and the rules. You need to choose seven cats to tag and list their names. Don't forget to leave a comment that they have been tagged and read your diary. And they need to post the rules, too.

Seven facts about me:

1. I don't meow, I purr and squeak (very cute!!).

2. I love to jump on meowmie's bed and give head-butts, then licks.

3. When meowmie is sleeping on her tummy, I love to lay on her back.

4. I have a bum toe on my right front foot, if it gets worse they say they may have to remove it (ACK!!).

5. I don't like the dog. I see her coming, I'm gone.

6. I'm the only cat (of the five here now) who has NEVER gone onto the counter or table to grab tasty human food, I don't like the stuff.

7. I absolutely LOOOVVVEEE catnip! Yummy!
