Arrival Story:
A very "mountain man" named Walter, of Big Sur, heard that I wanted a Manx cat. Never really knew if Smokey was a real manx or "man made", all I know is that he had a litter of kittens that needed a home and suddenly had a manx kitten--with no tail-- for me! I wonder if??

Smokey was my buddy for 20 years. He didn't like going outside much, just preferred to be safe in the house with me. He was a very healthy and happy cat for all those years thanks in part to great advice from veterinarian Dr. Richard Pitcairn . . . Smokey crossed over the Rainbow Bridge August of 2003. MAY YOUR WHISKERS BE RUFFLED BY ONLY PLEASANT BREEZES, MAY YOUR BOWLS BE FILLED WITH TUNA AND SWEET CREAM, MAY YOUR DREAMS BE BLESSED WITH LEGIONS OF MICE, AND MOST OF ALL, MAY YOU FOREVER PURR IN PEACE. We miss you little Smokey . . .

Keeper of the Pumpkin Patch

When Mom brought home her first pumpkin today, she couldn't help but think of me. Mom loves the Fall season and always celebrates Fall by putting out lots of decorations, especially pumpkins. I guess for some reason I really liked those pumpkins because Mom could always find me curled up around the pumpkins. She used to call me "The Keeper Of The Pumpkin Patch". Decorating my page today for the Fall brought back many fond memories of me. Wishing all our friends a Happy Fall!!

Mom always calls it a "treasure" when she runs across some picture she forgot she even had of me. My pictures were taken before the days of digital photography, and she just didn't take many of me. So what a plesant surprise when she found one of me today taken at Christmas many years ago. Do you think she suspects maybe I had something to do with her finding it? Merry Christmas Mom . . .
Love from Smokey


New Angel Arriving

An old friend of mine has recently become an angel. For 12 years my mom managed the spay neuter clinic at the local SPCA. In those 12 years, she and her co-worker Dottie anesthetized and preped for spay/neuter surgery over 50,000 dogs and cats. All done at a very low cost or for free. That meant that a whole lot of unwanted puppies and kittens were never born. It is a 12 year career that she and Dottie were always proud of. Dottie was my friend too because she always took care of me when mom was out of town. So, many of us will gather around Dottie and greet her when she arrives at the Bridge today to thank her for all the wonderful work she did to help animals. There is a painting done by Susan Pitcarin on my page now, it shows mom and Dottie at the clinic. We love you Dottie . . .

PS. Hey Dottie, remember that crazy cat Arnold who was the clinic mascot? You know, the one that was always biting you, the one you loved so much anyway?? Well, BRING BAND-AIDS, he's here waiting for you.
