Arrival Story:
It is with great sadness that I report that Pip is now with his dear friend Tuck, in heaven, waiting for us all. He got sicker and sicker following a fall, and the very kind doctor said the time had come. He died in my arms and is buried in the back yard under a rose bush.

Pip was born to a show cat family who wasn't aware of the dangers of inbreeding inherent in Scottish Folds. When they dicovered he was unable, becaue of congenital abnormalities to hold poses they sold him as a pet. Since he was 6 months old by then, he didn't like being held (probably hurt in training) and he didn't know how to play. He is learning both now, at 8 years of age.

I have been absent from the diary practically forever because I had a fall in June, and hurt my hind legs. Since I have some congenital abnormalities (that's what my mom calls them) I am not so limber as some and Iam just barely beginning to jump again. I am all better, but I felt awful for a while there.

Ever since Tuck died, I have discovered all kinds of things about myself I didn't even know existed.
1) I turns out I like to sleep with my Mom. To be sure I sleep at the foot of the bed, but I don't know how long I'll do that - I might move closer to the head of the bed.
2) I love to have my tummy rubbed and postively turn myself inside out when my Mom does it.
3) I LOVE to talk. And these people, especially Mom, understand me. I can tell them when I want food, when I want to be petted, when I want anything and they give it to me. What a sense of power!!

I miss Tuck sometimes, but I (and my family) realize that I was meant to be an only cat and I am blooming.

I have been so busy changing I haven't kept my diary, but I'll try to do better.

Oh, God, they've let a huge loud bumbling monster into the house - yikes it is the human who grabbed me and threw me into my crate when there was all that excitement last year. I think I'll avoid him. I'll just live my sister's bed for a few days. Thank God for those early mornings when I can get my petting before he comes over!
