Arrival Story: I had lost to illness my precious princess Gabrielle who had owned me for 11 years about three weeks before. I wanted to adopt a kitten. Amazingly there were no free kitten ads in the paper and the shelter had no kittens. Finally the shelter had one black kitten for adoption (Gabby had been black too) we raced down to the shelter only to find a couple in the process of filling out the papers to adopt the kitten. So I looked at the adult cats; I could hardly stand it, I was in tears because I wanted to take them all home. But my husband didn't want an adult; he thought it might have bad habits already. As we were leaving an employee or volunteer at the shelter said: "pssst! you want a kitten?" Seems she had a friend who was an animal rescuer who had a cat with a litter. The whole family, mama and kittens had been found in a box taped shut in a parking lot! (I hate some people). I went to go check out the kittens and there were four gray tabby girls and one little orange boy. I had gone intending to adopt one cat; a girl. (yes, I do like semicolons). Well after picking Edgar's sibling, Emily from the available girls left I said the fateful words: "Oh give me the little orange boy too." And the rest is history.
I had fun tonight at the "Whatever Party" in the brusselball group! The party is here: brusselball I hope more furriends can make it this weekend! It is come and go all weekend but I and Salem and Lucy are camping out there fur the whole thing!
Well this is embarrassing! I started out to give a rosie of thanks to all the sweet furriends who remembered my birthday with rosies and I don't have enough zealies! LOL! Too funny because I've given tons away in the last year since I'm not on here much any more. I'm sorry though... I wanted to be able to give at least a little rosie to effuryone who remembered me. :~(
But thank you so much!! This was a furry important birthday to me. And special thanks to my furriends who took the trouble to come to my birthday party in the brussellball group spa!! That meant more to me and momma than you will know. (((furriends)))
The fun kitties who hang out in the brusselball group in the spa thread are going to have another party next weekend! This party is a "Whatever Party" and it starts at 8 pm EASTERN time and lasts ALL weekend! Come and go as you please! I know they'd love to see you there! So please stop by and party! It is an open group now, I believe. So head on over to: http://www.catster.com/group/Brusselball-10047 and look for the Spa Meow and Lounge thread - the only thread on Catster, I would hazard a guess, with over 175,000 posts!! :~)
My silly mom is all excited about my 17th birthday party in the brusselball group spa! Here is the url for the group: http://www.catster.com/group/Brusselball-10047 I think the admins will accept your request to join if you ask to.
You see, before me and Emily, mommy had one cat as a grown up; Gabrielle. Gabby didn't quite make it to 11 years old and Gabby was mommy's heart kitty. I won't go into all the details of her journey to the Bridge. Suffice it to say, that it was 'cause of Gabby and then Lucinda that mommy promised me that I and my sis, Emily Felicity, would NOT suffer because mommy couldn't stand to let us go.
As many of you know, my sis, Emily, had to make her journey when she was only 14.5 years old. So I've been without her for a while now. Daddy always said he thought sis would outlive me, because I was fat... But what does daddy know? LOL! I'm fixin' to turn 17!
I get my sub-q fluids twice a week. And I'm down under 8 lbs in weight. But I still have my appetite and still bat Salem on the head when he is a pain. And still sleep with my mommy.
Mom doubts that I will have an 18th birthday - because of that promise she made... so if you could make it to this party, well, I'd really appreciate it!
