Likes: She is fascinated with soap bubbles and is always putting her paw in the dish water! Also, playing hockey goalee with ice chips, being held , kneading mom's neck
Pet-Peeves: pulling the tufts of hair on her feet, being brushed, being put out of the office when she wants to snuggle.
Favorite Toy: ice cube chip to chase around the floor, she jumps up on the counter when she hears me crack an ice cube tray!! She loves twist ties and once climbed completely into the bottom drawer of the freezer because she saw one on a bag! Silly girl

Favorite Food: Purina Pro Plan Indoor, with Friskies canned, or Fancy Feast for a treat, Friskies Party Mix
Skills: opening cupboard doors (we had to put magnetic locks on them), opening bi-fold doors, neck hugs, french kisses
Arrival Story: We saw Hannah at an adoption site from a local shelter. We were "only looking" (right), but saw the sign on her and her siblings cage, saying that they were found at the city dump. She was no doubt the ugliest kitten I had ever seen! Stringy gray fur, very scrawny, runny eyes, and missing all the hair on the top of her head. Needless to say, she stole my heart. I convinced my patient husband that she'd never be chosen, so we took her home. I keep forgetting to add, the shelter didn't think anyone would want her either, because they just gave her to me, with no adoption fee! It has to be the best decision I have ever made. This little girl has brought more pure love and affection, and more joy to my life than I ever could have imagined. I can't stand to be away from her.
Bio: We learned from her foster mother, that a puppy she was fostered with was responsible for chewing the fur from her head. She looked more like a monkey, than a kitten. She has almost no voice, just squeaks, or says "hah", like she is saying her name! Her purr is just a vibration. Hannah holds her paws up to be lifted into my arms. She would let me carry her for hours. Each morning she wakes me kneading and suckling my neck, and giving me french kisses. She loves to wrestle with the boys, and when we brought Enzo home, she camped out on top of his carrier and they became best friends. Hannah is the best part of my life right now. No matter how bad the day has been, everything is okay again when she jumps into my arms, and wraps those fuzzy feet around my neck! When I am holding her, it's just she and I...the rest of the world doesn't even exist. My lifetime love.

TKC's "Cat of the Month", Jan. 2008 TKC's "Cat of the Month", Oct. 2009
Yesterday morning my beautiful sister Kate made her journey to the Bridge. She would have been 10 next month. We knew she had been fading the last several months. Her asthma was not as bad as Stinky's was but it none the less shortened her precious life. The air in our town is very hard on both animals and people because of all the oil and chemical refineries here. We will have her tiny body cremated and added to the big family urn. I miss you Katie, you were a good and sweet sister.
I am going to let mom write the rest herself.
This is an update for those who have had me in their prayers. Please keep them coming my dear friends.
On Friday the 27th, I had my long awaited eye surgery. It was a scary procedure as I was aware of everything and heard every comment. I felt the needles and the scalpels and the tools as he lifted layers of scar tissue from my eye. It did not hurt though. There were students observing since this was not an everyday thing. The doctor was very pleased and said he got almost all the eye clear and it looked healthy.
On Saturday the technician removed the wrappings from my eye. You can imagine how hopeful I was. Unfortunately so far there was no change in my vision. Everything looks white with hardly any color. I was warned before the surgery that my brain might have to learn to process the new signals so now we just wait.
Sunday the worst happened. I had a terrible fall in the garage, landing face down on the side of my forehead above the eye. I also hit my shoulder and arm very hard and landed on my hand. I was almost nauseous from the pain and could not stand for David to lift me. Finally he got me up and he doesn't think any bones are broken. However, I can barely lift my right arm and my face is bruised and fingers red and swollen. I'm typing with my left. I haven't been able to do much of anything because I need my good arm to hold on to things due to my balance problem. Poor David is exhausted as I usually did most of the cats care. He needs your prayers too. I couldn't even hold Katie when she died and my heart is broken that I was not there for her. I pray she knew how much I loved her. If my arm does not improve in a few days I will have to have it looked at. My brother in Austin is sending some money to help with that as my insurance has not begun yet.
Thank everyone for caring and being there for my family. If I can get well from all of this life will be better again. I need to for my babies and David.
Purrs to my dear friends~
I have not been around since last week and I've missed some birthdays and RB days so please forgive me for that.
My mom has been busy getting things done around the house because tomorrow she is having eye surgery. Momma has been blind in her right eye since birth. She was born 3 months too early, and weighed barely over two pounds, the same size I was when she adopted me! Doctors trying to keep her alive unintentionally blinded her, causing scar tissue to form blocking her vision in one eye. Her eye doctor for the past 35 years is retiring soon and he wanted to try and remove as much of the scar tissue as possible, which is now something more modern procedures will allow. Momma's wonderful sister is going to pay for this. It is not known how much she will see and she's kinda scared. I asked her if she is able to see me with both eyes will she love me twice as much? She said "absolutely baby girl!" purrrrrrrr
I'll write more soon.
Love & hugs to everypaw~
