Arrival Story: Nina was not my first cat. When I was in high school, my mom adopted 2 cats named Princess and Beany from an ex friend who was supposed to leave the country and couldn't take them with her. Well 2 months later the lady changed her mind and demanded the babies back from my mom. My mom loved Princess and Beany to pieces, and she tried convincing the lady to let them stay here forever, but to no avail. Therefore, we had to do the heartbreaking thing and let them go on thanksgiving weekend 2005. Oh gosh that was the worst weekend of my life. After many weeks of crying myself to sleep and dreaming of the babies coming back, my dad said he'd like us to adopt another kitty. At first I didn't want to. Losing Princess and Beany was way too hard, but then again, I didn't want the house to be petless either, so the search set out for a new baby. My dad took time off work to accompany my mom on shelter trips, as my mom can't walk in there without having a breakdown. The search for a new kitty seemed to take an eternity. There was one sweet little boy that my mom fell head over heels with, but when she and my dad got to the THS, a young couple had beat her to it and were filling out paper work to adopt him. My mom was so mad, she came home in tears. She didn't think the couple would make very good pawrents, as they were heavily tattooed and pierced from head to toe. Y'know, the hell's angels from the bad part of downtown Toronto you don't want to mess with, XD. Well, that night, my dad went on petfinder and spotted our Nina. OMC she looked almost like Princess, my mom and I had to have her. So, the next day, we drove down to the rescue in Hamilton to meet her, and it was love at first meow. We picked her up the day after her spay surgery, and the rest is history. Although I am more of a dog person, Nina has a very doglike personality. She's the best kitty ever. She's here to stay and no one can take her from me.
Bio: I call her Jellybean because honestly, I don't like the name Nina. It's too old school for me, But it was the name she came with, so my family decided to keep it. She got the nickname Jellybean because she loves playing with candy, XD.
* Update... Due to life's unfortunate circumstances, we sadly had to rehome Jellybean on 10/26/12. Please see her diary for details. We miss you sweet girl. :(
Well look who's here. Guess you didn't think I could paw in my own diary anymore without sister. Well I'm here to prove to the world that us kitties are much smarter than our humans give us credit for. In other words our humans aren't always the brightest crayons in the box. =)
I'm sneaking on my new mommy's catputer for the afternoon. I have to tell you all what happened last night. I went to sleep and Jezz's angel brother Charlie came to visit me in my dreams. He said to me, Ms. Jellybean, do you know your old human sister lost her marbles in Texas? I couldn't believe what Charlie was telling me. Then again, it didn't really surprise me. Sister could never keep any of her marbles in Canada. Charlie then said to me, Jellybean, your sister was being silly the other day sleeping in the grass thinking she was a doggy. I'm not suppposed to tell you, but she got attacked by bugs and now has bites all over her face, back, neck, chest, head, and a few other unmentionable places. =(
Well ha! That's what happens if you lie down in Texas grass silly Sister. I hope that'll teach you to keep your marbles together now. XD
Victoria here. Wow, I didn't know my beautiful girl was capable of exposing me all the way from Canada. =P
Guess I have to watch my back now. XD
In other news, I made the decision not to get back together with the ex. His life was a soap opera and was full of way more drama than I signed up for, so I think it's just better that way. =D
Have a good day everykitty and please keep in touch. :)
Hello to all my beautiful catster friends. Victoria here, just popping by to say thank you to all who left beautiful gifties on Jellybean's page. I know I don't come here and update as much as I should, but it's very hard for me to come on here and see my girl's beautiful image knowing we'll never physically live in the same house again. I did visit her a lot over the summer when I went back to Canada and she is doing very well and is holding down the fort in her new home. :)
As for me, life just goes on, what can I say. As some of you may know, I almost became a mommy to 2 new furkids this summer. I fell in love with a wonderful gentleman that I met at camp long ago, and we started dating a couple months ago. Everything was going so well and we were discussing plans to move in together after I graduate. Of course this meant he'd have to move out of state and leave his family and friends behind which he was more than happy to do to be with me. I really did not see the end coming, and I'm sure he didn't either. Neither of us thought it would happen in a million years. Unfortunately his circumstances changed, and he was forced to leave me. Needless to say we had a long drawn-out breakup, and it wasn't painless, but it needed to be done. I hope and pray that things will get better for him and we can be together again, but in reality it might not turn out that way, so I'm hoping for the best but prepared for the worst. For those of you who have pmailed and supported me throughout this process, you know who you are, and I cannot possibly thank you enough for all your sweetness. You know I couldn't possibly have pulled through without your support. :)
If things don't work out, the world still keeps spinning, and life just goes on.XD
I love all of you and please keep in touch. I'm always on pmail, so feel free to meow any time. =D
Happy Birthday to you.
Happy Birthday to you.
Happy birthday dear sweet Jellybean.
Happy birthday to you. :)
Jellybean, I can't believe you're 8 today, and this is your first birthday in your new home. Never in a gazillion catrillion years did we ever imagine we wouldn't be celebrating your birthday. I would like to thank everybody who has so kindly left gifties and pmails and well wishes for your 8th birthday. I talked to Mommy last night, and she has plans to visit you today and give you a fun pawty. I will be doing my own celebrating from Texas tonight. There's a big piece of chocolate cake in the foyer. I have no idea who it's from or what it's for, but I'm gonna steal it the first opportunity I get and celebrate your birthday. Have a good day sweet Girl, and be bad today because it's your day. :P
