Playing, trying to escape, catnip, toys, rocketing up the cat tree, wrestling with Maus, getting into trouble
Cat carriers (she hates them!), car rides (she hates car rides even more!), being ignored, holding still for photos
What ISN'T Sable's favorite toy? She plays with anything and everything!
Favorite Nap Spot:
Generally in her bucket bed, the human beds, or on the cat tree
Sable is a great problem solver. If there's something she wants, she'll find a way to get it!
Unlike the other three cats, which were found, Sable found us. She just waltzed up to my aunt and uncle's porch one day as they were outside, and made herself at home, laying down and even allowing my then-four year old cousin to pick her up and hold her. Figuring that this little gray cat was owned by someone due to the dirty nylon collar she wore, my aunt put up "Found" posters to see if anyone had lost a cat. When no one spoke up after a time, my aunt brought the little cat to the vet where she was given a clean bill of health. Unfortunately, my aunt was unable to keep the cat because of Fritzi, their temperamental elderly cat who pretty much ruled the roost there. We offered to take the cat we'd dubbed Sable at least temporarily - and wound up as her forever home. Sable adjusted to the house on the very first day we brought her home, acting as if she'd lived there her entire life.
Sable was a very curious and dominant cat who liked to be wherever the action was. And if there isn't any action, she was bound to try and create some! Always looking for ways to keep herself entertained, she became fast friends with the momma and son pair, especially Maus who she wrestled with and followed around constantly. There was not much you were unable to do with Sable, as she was extremely tolerant of roughhousing, and even enjoyed it! Sabes played with Chloe too, though Chloe would sometimes get irritated by Sable's seemingly boundless energy. In addition to her playfulness, Sable was a very vocal cat who enjoyed keeping a running commentary of her day. Unlike most cats I've heard, she trilled and "chirped" more than she would meow. When she does meow, it's of a soft quality, though she would raise it to a yowl on occasion when there was something she really wanted.
If Sable could be described in one word, it can be this: Purrsonality! Sable was constantly looking for ways to get into trouble and often "recruited" Maus to pad after her as she sought out something naughty to do. Generally when there was a crash somewhere in the house, or something in disarray, Sable was the culprit! Despite her penchant for trouble-making she was really a very affectionate cat. She would come when called and would follow the humans of the house around to get attention. She was also a lap-cat and, when she was comfortable, would sometimes nurse on an offered hand or arm. Sable was also very good at knowing when there was food, and would come running from anywhere in the house when she heard a plate being put down.
In the end, her former life as a stray caught up to her and what started as a simple case of the sniffles would result in a diagnosis of FELV. She lived four healthy months after her diagnosis before passing on April 6th of 2009. She was a very special cat and is deeply missed.

Yesterday marked the fifth anniversary of my journey to the Bridge. Though my time at the bridge has been longer than my time on earth with my people, I lived life to the fullest and I know that my people still miss me and still think of me all the time.

Sable winging in from the rainbow bridge to say -
WOW! Diary of the Day! Thanks everyone for your Pawmails and rosettes and things. Things aren't so bad here at the bridge, with toys to chase and trees to climb, and welcoming new angels as they try out their wings..
but it's not the same as being with my family down there on earth.
I know they'll always miss me, and they know that I'm out there somewhere, watching them.
Gotta run! There's a patch of catnip with my name on it!

Another "Gotcha Day" without you here, Sable. This year marks 4 years since we lost you, which is a year more than the time you spent with us on earth.
Missing you, always.
