Arrival Story:
Riley came to live with us after he wandered up at a job site. He was 5 miles from anywhere in the middle of a bull pasture, and had ant bites all over his face and was suffering from dehydration and heat . We were't sure he would make it, but he was a tough little guy. When I picked him up, he hugged my neck and purred. My mother-in-law wonders how we end up with so many cats. I wonder...

Bio:
After Riley recovered, we noticed that he routinely missed jumps and fell, even from short distances. Our Vet determined that he has a rare condition of his back legs, causing them not to lock when he lands. While he may still face surgery in the future, Riley has learned to compensate by landing with the weight (and great it is!) on his front legs. Whenever a new addition comes into the household, Riley is the "babysitter". You can hand him a kitten and he will hug it like a child holding her doll. It's adorable. At bedtime he buries his head against you , cooing and purring. His newest thing is "holding hands" at night. I sleep with one arm under my pillow, Riley sleeps above my head, and reaches his paw out and cups his paw into my hand, and goes to sleep that way. Riley is the kind of cat, that if you could teach him to write, he'd spend his days writing love letters to Mom and Dad. My sweetheart. UPDATE: Just before Thanksgiving 2009, Riley started feeling bad and had a bad cold/sinus infection. We took him to the vet, for tests, and found the news was worse than we could have imagined. An infection of unknown origin had spread throughout his body, causing severe kidney damage and also affecting his liver and bladder. He spent nearly a week in the hospital, but got to come home with a guarded prognosis. At home, he got worse each day, and we had to make the unbearable decision to help him to the Bridge. I will try to write this in more detail later, as the tears are too intense right now. I know there will never be another cat like Riley. He was unique. He was my Big Love.

Forums Motto:
Peace. Love, & Catnip

Rainbow Bridge Anniversary # 5

[ Leave A Comment ]

As I watched from a billowy cloud, I saw momma wiping tears from her cheek as she and dad looked over my pictures on my Catster page. It's five years ago today since she helped me cross the Bridge. I think she would have carried me across herself and not gone back, but there are a lot of other kitties here that need her love and care. I said "Momma, I'm fine now." "Just close your eyes and I'm there, brushing against your face and cooing in your ear." Bridge Days can be filled with happy memories too. Then dad remembered that our old camera still had pictures they had never taken off. (The battery had failed) Dad worked on getting them off. So there are a few new ones of me that haven't been seen before. I hope my friends will enjoy them.

I'm going to spend the rest of the evening with my Angel family here. Zack put together a nice gathering. Flyin' off for now.

Peace, Love and Catnip Purrs,
Riley

P.S.
Butterfly kisses to my love, Anna

 

My 5th Birthday at the Bridge

October 13th 2014 3:53 pm
[ Leave A Comment ]

Today was the 5th Birthday I have celebrated here at the Bridge. I got an "Earth Day" birthday pass and spent the day with my beautiful gal, Anna. I have pictures but was afraid to add them for fear of the Catster Flea Monster eating them up!
Before I left on my amazing Earthbound date, *Riley grins and winks*, My angel family and a few special friends here threw me a nice party. For those of you who did not know, my brother, Queso, joined us here two weeks ago. We all teased him because he crash landed several times. It takes some time to master these wings!
But mostly I wanted to tell everyone how much I think about them all the time. Momma is trying to find her way back to Catsterland (I think the birds ate the bread crumbs) but if that happens, I'll visit a lot more.
Well, I'm off to round up some butterflies! It was great to be back, if only for a while.

Peace, love & catnip purrs,
Riley

P.S. *Blows a kiss to Anna*

 

Hearts and Happiness

Hey dudes...who's got the sweetest valentine on Catster? ME!
I asked this girl...fully expecting that she would politely say no...and to my delight, she said YES!
Not only will she be my valentine for Valentine's day, but she said she will be my Catster girl everyday!

*does back-flips*

Okay, have I left you in suspense for long enough?

My lovely valentine is Anna! *big sigh*

Now I know she's got a lot of admirers, and I am not the jealous type, so dudes, don't be afraid or shy to send her valentines too. It's cool.

And if you have a special someone who you have wanted to get closer to, then take a chance, put your heart out there.
I did, and boy am I glad I did.

Thanks everyone, for sharing my happiness.

Peace, love, more love, & catnip purrs,
Riley~the happy angel~
