Bio:
2 years ago, Tot's kidney's started to fail, thyroid went wacky, and she was aging quickly. We made her as loved and as comfortable as we could, but in the end, she stopped eating, liver started to to, etc, so we kissed her and sent her on the the great warm and cushy sofa in the sky. She will always be my kitty......

I encouraged my human to move to Florida as I was getting on in years and wanted to spend my 'retirement' basking in the sun and warmth of a tropical clime. Well, apparently South Florida is not hip to my needs! Upon waking at the regular 3:00 am to comb my human's hair, it felt a chill. I sauntered over to the window and -gasp- noticed the thermometer said it was 48 degrees outside. AND only 70 inside. I immediately jumped on the bed, woke my human and encouraged her to heat of the inside and outside, as well as feed me as the chilly temperatures increase the appetite. Her eyes rolled back in her head and she flopped onto the pillow, ignoring me completely. All cats know that is just like throwing down the gauntlet. Ah ha! A challenge. I patted her face, moving quickly to combing her bangs and tapping her nose. After she rolled over in an attempt to hide, I started pawing the back of her neck most insistenly. After a few minutes of this, she sat right up and looked at me. I put on my most piteous face and mewed at her. She sighed, then stood up and started for the kitchen (despite my complaints, she is rather well trained). After a few steps she too noticed that the tile floor was rather cold, and that is was chilly in the house. She opened the door for the skin test and squeaked!! I will not continue to bore you all with all the steps for feeding, new water, etc, but will wrap up by stating I ended the hour with a full tummy and a warm blanket-clad lap on the sofa, blissfully asleep. My human was complaining about the lack of suitable programing on TV at 4 am as I was drifting off.......
