Skills: Sugar is a good soccer player with her crinkle balls! Can maneuver good for a blind kitty!
Arrival Story: Sugar was my Mom's cat. Sugar was just a kitten when she joined Mom's family. After Mom passed away in August, Sugar and Spunky remained at her house with us visiting every day and trying to find them a forever home. We were unable to find someone who could give them a loving home, and knowing that our home would be best for them, they joined our growing family! You never know what path life will take you down, and we know that Spunky and Sugar will bring us joy!
Bio: Sugar is rather shy, but when she warms up to you, she is very affectionate! Due to all the changes in her life during the past few months, she has taken her stress out on her belly and paws by overgrooming. She has a bare belly and hair loss on her legs, but she is much calmer now, and the hair is starting to grow back!
The reason Sugar's eyes are so large is because she went blind from having undiagnosed high blood pressure. We do think she sees shadows, and it is amazing how well she gets around.
In September 2010, Sugar had numerous trips to the vet due to bowel and stomach problems. She was diagnosed with intestinal cancer. After losing a lot of weight, and she stopped eating entirely, we decided it was her time to become an angel. She made her journey with her Mawmee and Daddy by her side on October 30, 2010. She will be greatly missed by our family, but we know she is one beautiful angel!
Our friend, Monida, had a Santa Sweepstakes Contest in December and Samoa won third place.
Her prize was a gift card to The Cat Fun Attic Etsy shop that Tigger and his Dad own!
After looking over the pawsome items in the shop, Mawmee decided to get one of the angel figurines and have it made to look like me. We already have some pawsome paintings of Calvin, and a cute angel ornament that was made to look like Spunky, so it was my turn to get something special.
The angel is so cute, and Tigger helped his Dad make a little blue ball just like my favorite toy. The ball I played with is in the special box that holds my ashes and other memorabilia.
The angel is also painted to look like me - it even has my little white triangle on the chest.
You can see pictures of this special angel here and here.
Thank you, Monida, for the sweepstakes, and thank you to Tigger and his Dad for making the very special angel!
Thank you so much to all my wonderful friends who remembered me yesterday on my first bridge anniversary. So many things have happened to my family in the last year, and now I have to watch over them in Arizona instead of Kentucky.
Daddy told Mawmee that besides Callie, Spunky and I were his favorite kitties. Callie was a calico who looked a little like me, but she had more white on her. She was the first cat that lived with my Mawmee and Daddy.
And then Daddy said, well, Calvin was my favorite too - Calvin was everybody's favorite. I think that just means that we are all Daddy's favorites!
I've had a good year learning how to be an angel. There are so many Catster angel pals to play with, and we all keep busy with angel sprinkling, bowling tournaments, and just chillaxin on the clouds!
Thanks again for all the beautiful messages you left for me. I will treasure them!
