The End of an Era

I came home in a cardboard box from a high-kill animal shelter about November 1998. I was 8 years old. After living in three houses and spending over 15 years dealing with sisters and then brothers, it's time to rest. January 7, 2014 at approximately 12 pm, mama helped get my wings. She promised forever and she delivered.

 

Legal!!!

Thanks for the sweet gifts and messages!!! I know it's approximate, but I'm 21 now! I've been with mama for about 13 years and at a guess I was 8 when she got me. I'm spoiled rotten and love it! I've got way too many sisters, but for the most part they leave me alone. I've got my health and every once in a while I still play like a kitten. So all is good for me!

 

Toothless is not defenseless

Well, being toothless doesn't mean my mouth is harmless. Mama found THAT out!

I started snoring about a week or so ago. And mama had noticed she could hear me breathing. Not like I'm wheezing or anything, just breathing loud. So despite the fact that traveling causes me a lot of pain, I had to go in for a check. With my 21st birthday coming up, mama wanted a senior panel ran anyway.

Once at the vet, I went first to get it all out of the way. Mama was the one who held me as she knows how to do it and hurt me the least. For those who don't know, I have a hip condition that is VERY aggravated by stress and makes me hurt terribly. Anyway, mama knows not to draw back if I try to bite as I don't have any teeth. If you draw back, I can get you with the claws. ^~~^ I've got a great voice for an old kitty... the WHOLE office heard me when I screamed. The vet and the tech both snatched their hands back but mama didn't even flinch. I bit her hand behind the base of her thumb. Before they'd even finished drawing blood and urine there was already a bruise!!! If I had teeth, mama says she'd have needed a doctor!!

They took me into the back to draw everything and when they brought me back, the vet told on me!! I didn't make a peep the whole time I was in the back. I didn't start growling again until the brought me back to where mama was... mol!!! Now she knows some of it is all blown out of proportion! Darn.

I spent the evening growling if I even SAW one of my sisters. Mama finally ended up with a massive headache and put me in the bathroom with some food about 3am. When I came out, I quieted down some... guess 12 hours of almost non-stop growling and yowling was more than she could take... hehehe...

My blood and urine tests all came back pretty good. A couple of kidney counts were up but he said that was likely due to the half-dose of metacam I get before I take a road trip. Mama hates giving it to me, but there's nothing else. Also, one number showed I do have arthritis too so she'll look into something for that. And there was a teensy elevation in the white count so I start on a 7 day course of Clavamox tomorrow when mama gets it from the pharmacy.

Many thank yous to all our friends!! We SO appreciate all the wonderful gifts!! Mama's wrist won't let her type gifts for every member of every family and either there's an issue here or Catster has disabled copy/paste for the gift shop to prevent that. We ARE making sure we send something to at least one member of each family if nothing else, trying for those who have fewer gifts so we can pretty their pages up too.

Thanks to:
Tasha
Alexander and family
Edie
Alfie and family
Ollie
Kaci Sunshine and family
Sally and family
Fred and family
Pia-Zadora and family
Gogo and family
Spotty and family
Oreo and family

Hoping we didn't miss anyone!! Thank you!!

 

Argh! Mama!!

To all the wonderful friends who left me such sweet birthday wishes... I just caught mama messing up my thank yous!! She was looking at each and sending the thank yous when she realized she skipped a rosette so she thanked some for the WRONG rosette!!! OMC!! I'm so sorry... it's just SO hard to get decent help these days!! Hopefully she at LEAST got my name right as the sender... mol!

It's a guess... I could be as young as 12 or as old as who knows... mol!! But the approximation is... I'm 20 years old today!!! I'm ornery, I sleep a lot, I've only got about three teeth and I'm not very tolerant. But I love attention, love my Fancy Feast and I can still run fast enough to get away from that three-legged fuzzball mama has unleashed on my poor old bones. I'll get some treats today and lots of lovings so it's all good!

Oh, it's mama's birthday today too. She's older than me by a little... lol!

 

Happy Thanksgiving from us all!

My whole family are wishing all our friends the best Thanksgiving! Whether you celebrate it or not, take a moment to be thankful. Mama looks at me these days and is thankful for each day we have together as we know they are limited. I'm not a kitten after all. Hold each of your family, furry or not, close and be glad they're still with you. And hold the memory of those you've lost close because those memories are special and your heart still holds the love you shared. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
