Arrival Story:
I was first rescued from rain by one nice man. I was very little at that time. Only about a couple of weeks old, I guess. He was a nice person, who kept me in his house in a small shoe box. To keep me warm he gave me his old clothes. But because he was working very long hours, he put up a posting on the net to adopt me. Thats when I got adopted into a new family. My Daddy Nitin and Mummy Preeti had 3 golden retriever dogs at home,. The mother named Baby and her two sons Mickey and Dennis about 41/2 years old. Daddy was confident that we'll all get along very fine but Mummy was a bit sceptical. Because one of my dog brother's Dennis was very possessive and jealous. First few days, they kept me covered in a basket but slowly I was let out under supervision and introduced to my new family I first became friends with the mother dog Baby. She was like mummy for me. Very gentle and very loving, and I think a bit fascinated with me :). I would climb on her and sleep all the time and she wouldn't mind at all. Mickey also became very protective about me and slowly Dennis too became friends. I would play with them whole day, biting them, nibbling on them and clawing their noses. They would sometimes get irritated with me and push me away or just walk off. Dennis snarled at me couple of times and I would get scared and run to Mummy or Chandra (our house maid), who would scold me for being naughty.

I used to sleep with Mummy and Daddy in their bedroom for about a month but then I became too big for the basket and would sleep with Chandra in her blanket :) She loved me soooo much that she would put up with all my naughty tricks I would trouble her when she was sweeping or swabbing the floor and she would shoo me away. I would goto the kitchen and cry Meow meow till she'd give me food. Surpisingly I was addicted to puppy dog food. Mummy and Daddy would come in the evening and I'd spend the whole evening jumping around the whole house from one sofa to another , even on top of TV cabinet, speakers......... just about everywhere. Mummy had to remove all breakable items and put them away :-- I also learnt how to climb out of the window and climb back in. Mummy would scold me a lot but I wanted to explore the world outside. We have a stray dog outside our house who would come for food twice a day. One particular morning, when Mummy was still in her bedroom and brothers were lapping up their milk, I decided to venture out alone. The stray dog saw me playing in the porche and since he had never harmed me I was not scared of him. THAT fateful day, god knows what came over him, and he attacked me and picked me up in his jaws and shook me up. I cried MEOW MEOW and was rescued by another servant we have at home. He got me inside and Mummy came running out. I was shaking & shivering. Mummy picked me up and cuddled me and cleaned me up to check if i had any wounds. She found no wounds on me but she still called up the doc. He said that if there were no wounds nothing to worry about since I was anyway vaccinated. Slowly my shivering stopped , but I started vomiting and could not control my potty. Mama cleaned me couple of times. I became very uncomfortable and started feeling listless, became fidgety. mummy kept following me all over the house and then slowly I slept. Mummy saw my lips becoming white and blood draining out of my eyes and she got very scared. She called the Doc and rushed me their. But it was too late by then. I had some internal injuries and by the time Doc arrived at his clinic, my little heart had stopped beating.... Daddy was out of town, mummy called him cried buckets full. She kept saying cats have 9 lives and I had another 8 to go. How could I leave her and go away? I was still so little....... so many things to do in life. Mummy, who had previously never liked cats was in LOVE with me !!!!! She can't get over my passing away till date and Mummy, you know what..... I LOVE YOU TOO . Thats why I want you to read this poem everytime you think of me................................ .................................. .................................. .................................. .................................. .................................. ... Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable. All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind. They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster. You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart. Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

Dear Mau

Sorry I haven't written in your diary for so long, but you know we think of you so often. You were my first kitten. You were the catalyst who made me rethink of my opinion on cats. You made me realise I loved not only dogs but cats too.

Dadaji passed away on 17th Oct 2011. It was sudden, a massive cardiac arrest. I had to rush to Kolkata and life has been a roller coaster since then.

Looks like we'll have to relocate to Kolkata from Ahmedabad. I don't know how I'll manage keeping Chiki & Nanu (he's the new cat memeber of the family) and Mickey-Dennis in a flat.

The place is not cat proof and I don't want to loose any more cats in my life. Chiki is 2 yrs + now and Nanu is only 6 months old.

And there are so many stray cats we look after in our house in Ahmedabad. Don't know who'll take care of them, once we leave.

Please tell God to give me some solution so that they are taken care of. Pls help me find homes for them.

LOL from yr mamma

Hugs n kisses
