Sleeping and kitty treats
Phoebe, our other kitty- Cagney had an "I vant to be alone" attitude!
Favorite Nap Spot:
Her wooden wine box with her pillow & her woobies (blankets), on the kitty condo soaking p the sun, or on our daughter's bed.
Iams or Eukenuba
She was a cuddle cat but only when she wanted to be & yowled loudly for treats
Cagney crossed the Rainbow Bridge on January 27, 2005. Rest in peace beautiful, sweet blue-eyed little girl - until we meet again on the other side... She waited until we went away on a trip, & quietly left this earth and us to mourn. Sweet kitty, we miss you always...
Her history: Our first kitty, Quincy, needed a companion so we went to the pound looking for a kitten. This kitten, who was called Annie, was on hold. But she was so sweet with her big blue eyes and her lilac points, I fell in love with her. I asked if it was a sure sale and the staff said that someone put a hold on her for their mother. They agreed to call me on Monday if they did not take her. I did not hear from them until Wednesday and was sure I had lost this precious kitty until I heard from the Humane Society & they said she was mine if I still wanted her. We agreed to stop in again to look at her and she grabbed me around the neck with her paws and wouldn't let go for the staff to take her back to the cage. She really chose me! The Humane Society had her spayed and she became our kitty. We changed her name to Cagney after the TV show Cagney & Lacey because she frowned with a wrinkled forhead & had beautiful blue eyes like actress Sharon Gless.
She barely tolerated Quincy and he loved her dearly. He would chase her down the hall and occasionaly wiold catch her and bite her. She rarely fought back but sometimes just fought back. Later you would find them on the bed close together, but not touching!
When Quincy was about 8 years old, he developed diabetes and complications. We had to send him to the Rainbow Bridge. We got another kitten to replace him, our colorful clown, Phoebe (see profile below). Cagney wasn't too fond of Phoebe, either. I think she wanted to be an only "child".
She got to be an old lady kitty (17) and had developed arthritis and siezures. But she would still persuade us to give her treats twice a day- promptly at 8:30 a.m. & 8:30 p.m. I think she could tell time because she yowled very loudly & persistently at us at those times and would sit by the end table where we kept them until we forked treats over. When she was younger she rarely meowed but as she got older, she became very demanding just like any old lady does.
The most beautiful cat in the world!
