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

Birthday: October 13, 2000
Bridge Date: December 7, 2009

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~

 

One Month Already

It's almost impossible that it's been a month since you left Riley.
I miss you more every day.
I have made a promise to myself to try to stop crying, and remember all the funny things that made me laugh about you.
...like the way Cary would flop on top of you, and throw her tail around your face, like a boa. It often made you sneeze...but you never protested. You were the gentlest soul I have ever known.
...or the way you would reach your paw out to say "more" when I was rubbing your soft belly.
I teased you about that tubby tummy. I'm sorry sweetie.
...and the way you would clean and hold all the new kittens. All babies that join our house will never know your love now.
But I am so, so grateful that I did. For nine years you never stopped loving me. From the day we found you, you have been my Big Love.
I pray you have found peace, Riley. We'll have our special time again...wait for me.

Love forever and ever,
Momma

Oh Riley...
How can I say how much I miss you baby?
We went into the vets office, to sign papers for Harry's cremation.
They had gotten in a new shipment of collars. One of them was bright colors, with hearts and peace signs. I thought..."Oh! I must get that for Riley!"
Then the pain stabbed my heart, as I had to remember that I will never hold your squishy, chubby body in my arms again. I will never feel those paws around my neck and your warm face cooing and purring against my cheek.
Please don't be gone...let me wake up from a bad dream and find you there still.
I miss you so much, Riley.

Love you forever,
Momma
