Arrival Story: I was born August 26, 2007. Originally my mom was going to adopt 1 of the 3 Ragdolls from the litter as the other 2 were spoken for. But then as luck would have it, one family backed out on adopting us. Mom decided to adopt both Seal Mitted Ragdolls, me and Mittens. This would allow me and my twin, Mittens, to continue to be besties and live together under the same roof! It works out quite well as me and Mittens are inseparable.
Bio: As many of you know, my brothers are friends with Snowmitts and family. Mom instantly fell in love with Snowmitts and when we heard from his family that there were 2 Seal Mitted Ragdolls born, my mom was lucky to adopt both of us! My furrry parents are the same as Snowmitts', so he is my older brother. Biscotti is the 3rd cat from the same litter, so he too is my brother! WOW!
My favorite color is a deep red. My favorite cat is Charmmy Kitty who is HK's friend. I love love love Ladybugs :)

May 6, 2009 diagnosed with Moderate to borderline severe juvenile onset Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy. I made my journey to Rainbow Bridge September 12, 2013 just before noon EST.
6 years ago me and Mittens left the breaders home in PA to VA. Mom remembers one moment w the breeders. I was in a cat condo and mom heard a faint purrr. Yup! It was coming from me!! She put her ear closer to hear my purrrr and from that moment t was love at first site!
She also remembers me chasing and bunny kicking a toy at the breeders house. Something I did a lot.
While I'm at the bridge, I see mom's eyes leaking as she types this entry for me. I know she misses and thinks about me daily. I miss her so much and I know mom loves me. I may have taken a piece of her heart with me to the bridge, but when we unite someday, her heart will be whole again...
Yesterday mom found one of my furrr balls on her clothes. It was on a shirt she hasn't worn in a while. Often when she did laundry there would be tiny fur balls from my hair being wadded up from the wash/dryer.
She saw it and said to me, "Tiskers, thank you for the reminder you're here. I think about you every day so if this is your way to remind me of you, it's working but know I think about you daily". Uh uhhh mom's eyes are leaking...
It's hard to believe I've been at the bridge for over a month. Mom didn't want to do a diary like most cats do on the 1 month anniversary. I know she thought of me even though she's been busy. My ashes are safe on the fire safe. She thought about putting them in the fire safe but likes them where they are. She found my lady bug toy and put that with my ashes.
Bonks and purrrs to my friends and know that I'm looking down on you, especially mommy, who I miss (as does she) dearly...
Yesterday mom picked up my ashes in a beautiful cherrywood box. Inside was a nice card and a certificate which thankfully had mom's maiden name on, not cheating ex daddy's. The company was Valley Pet Crematory in MD! Yup I'm a well traveled cat :)
The vet techs were so nice and mom chatted with one.
I'm happy to be "home". Mom is enjoying the nice weather and I know she thinks of me when she walks with the dog. The weather is nice and cool and mom wishes she could have strolled one more time with me :( uhhhh ohhhhh, I see her eyes leaking....
