Being petted and snuggling with the other kitties.
She doesn't play much.
Favorite Nap Spot:
In the sun and with the other kitties.
Dry Cat Chow. Treats of any sort!
Never, ever using the litter box. Would go on paper all around the litter boxes, but never actually in them.
A lady at the local pharmacy said that this grey kitty kept hanging around her house and she didn't want another cat. Daddy wanted a kitty so he went and got me. I was about 1 year old at the time, and SURPRISE!!! I was pregnant with my first litter. I didn't tell dad until he took me to the vet to find out why I was getting so fat and to get my first check up. In addition, I had to get a BB pellet removed from my mouth/lip area because some teriibly mean person shot
me in the mouth.
I had a litter of 4 kittens - 3 different color tabbies and one solid chocolate brown. Daddy decided to keep the chocolate brown one, and that became my son Bear (he has a Catster page too).
In late 2001, Daddy took me to the vet because I had been throwing up lots and lots and lots. The vomiting had been going on for a long time but was getting more frequent and more severe. I had tried a number of different foods with no luck. In addition I was becoming very lethargic and my fur looked very unhealthy. I finally went to a specialist and was told I had mega-esophagus, a condition where I made a false stomach in my esophagus. I would then vomit up undigested food. I wasn't getting very good nutrition. There was a surgery that was possible, but the success rate was very, very low. Because my quality of life had deteriorated so much, Daddy made the tough decision to let me go across the Rainbow Bridge. My son Bear joined me at the Bridge in 2006. We are together again.
FYI: Toonces - Shaggy grey tabby cat (played by a puppet & a real cat) seen on skits from the weekend comedy show SATURDAY NIGHT LIGHT LIVE/NBC/1975+. Created by writer Jack Handey in the late 1980s, Toonces was billed as the "cat who could drive a car." (Texas drivers license No. Z82765NT) He lived with a simple-minded couple Lyle (Dana Carvey) and Brenda Clarke (Victoria Jackson) at 3130 Meadow Lane. Unfortunately, at the end of each comedy sketch, Toonces would drive the car off a cliff (with his screaming owners as passengers). Miraculously in the next segment, Toonces the cat would be alive and even more surprising his owners would again let the cat drive their car. Reportedly, Toonces used to be a stunt driver for The Dukes of Hazzard where he received a head injury which is probably responsible for his erratic driving skills. Toonces' owners were fond of showing home movies of him driving the car. (going over Niagara Falls, into the Grand Canyon, etc). Celebrity guest to had the chance to drive and crash with Toonces included Karen Allen, Griffin Dunne, Joe Flaherty, David Foley, Phil Hartman, Linda Hamilton, Andrea Martin, Steve Martin, Ken McDonald, Randy Quaid, Julia Sweeney, and George Wendt. In late May 1994 the real cat who played Toonces died of cancer at the age of nine years. The cat's real name was Tyrone Fletcher.
Crazy as a Loony Toon.
