Skills: Daisy has been taught: sit, stay, come, up and wait. I am working on shake a paw right now.
Arrival Story: We chose Daisy from the humane society when she was only 9 weeks old. She was in the back of the cage sitting ever so quietly, cuddled up with her sister. When I saw Daisy I knew she was the one for our family. I wish we could have taken her sister too but unfortunately we couldn't. We brought her home 2 weeks before my son's 3rd birthday.
Daisy has been a great addition to our family and we love her very much!
Bio: Daisy loves to chase you around the house and play hide and seek. No kidding! She is mainly an indoor cat but she goes outside with a harness and leash. She enjoys being outdoors during the late spring, summer and early fall months only.
She loves to hide in the shower curtain or any curtain for that matter and jump out at you! Daisy is a big ham. She absolutely loves having her picture taken and will follow you wherever you go if you have the digital camera or she will sit there and pose for you. She gives us much joy, laughter and love. :)
Daisy was the "Diary of the Day" winner for February 25th, 2009.
Well it has been a very long time since my meowmy wrote in my diary! We have been a very busy family. The kids are teenagers now and I'm starting to slow down a bit. I'm not quite as active as I used to be. My vet put me on a diet in November and I have lost a whopping 2.5kg so far and continuing to lose weight. It has helped my arthritis and makes me feel a lot better! I am now on two different kinds of pain meds for the arthritis and some days I feel like a kitten again.
Seventeen days ago, things in my house changed. A stray male brown tabby showed up at my house. He was thirsty and hungry and his ears were full of ear mites, inflammation, pus and bleeding from scratching them so much. His ears hurt a lot. My meowmy took him in, fed him and gave him a place to stay to keep him safe til she could find his parents. I didn't even know he was here at this point. My meowmy didn't want him giving me any diseases so she kept us apart. Meowmy took him to our vet to see if he had a chip, which he did not. And no collar either. We left our information and no response. So we decided to keep him and give him a furever home. My meowmy took jäger to the vet to get neutered, all his shots and medicine for his ears. We are both taking meds to kill the ear mites so we don't pass them back and forth to each other.
My meowmy took several days introducing me to jäger because I have been the only cat in the house my whole life! Eleven days after jäger came we got to see each other face to face. I growled and hissed for a few days. Some days I even let him sniff my face! It is taking time for me to get used to having him around. He can be a nuance like all little brothers but I am doing my best to get along with him.
Thank you everyone for your purrayers. They are working. Day by day a little at a time I am getting better. I am not myself yet. I still don't feel like playing or doing much but atleast I am eating again. I am taking medicine for my pancreas to help the inflammation and pain as I have pancreatitis. :( It is quite painful.
I started vomiting last Friday and stopped eating and drinking. My mom took me to the vet and he says the x-rays he took show I have pancreatitis. I am still not feeling very well and I don't feel like doing anything and I am still not really eating. My mom is really worried about me. The x-rays the vet took also showed that I have arthritis in my knees and hip. :( Please remember me in your prayers.
