Arrival Story:
In the summer of 2001, I chose meowmy's backyard to bear and raise my 4 kittens. I wouldn't let anyone touch me, but for some reason, I trusted meowmy with my kittens. She played with my babies, and they became very friendly with humans. Eventually, meowmy found good homes for my kittens, and she got me spayed and inoculated. For the next year meowmy cared for me outdoors. Then Antoine showed up on the scene. He used to chase me away to get my food. So I decided to move a couple houses down the street, where I stayed for a few years. Eventually, I started coming back to meowmy's house every night for dinner. In January 2008, I got into some trouble, and meowmy trapped me and took me to the vet. I lived in meowmy's bathroom for 2 weeks while I recuperated. Then she let me roam freely throughout the house. At first I felt trapped in the house, and I paced and yowled a lot. I gradually calmed down over the next couple months, and now I am doing very well!

I became an angel on March 29, 2015. The lymphoma ravaged my body very quickly, and there was nothing more that could be done. I am grateful for the love and care my meowmy gave me. I had a wonderful life!

Dear Dusty,

It's been a year since you flew away from me. You were such a sweet & gentle kitty. I have missed you every day.

Your Meowmy


My Trip to the Bridge

Dear Meowmy,

I took a trip today. I flew to the Rainbow Bridge shortly after 9PM PDT this evening. It's beautiful here, meowmy, so please don't be sad for me. Mathis and Belle are here keeping me company.

Meowmy, I want to thank you for everything you've done for me. You took good care of me and gave me lots of love, and I love you, too. I wish I could have stayed a lot longer with you, but unfortunately, the lymphoma in my body was too strong for me to fight. I am forever grateful to you for the wonderful years we had together.

Loving purrs,


Catnip Tea?

Earlier today, Belle sat on the kitty perch in the breakfast nook, and she played with the catnip mouse. The mouse had been on the perch for months, because I’m usually the only one who gets up there, and I’m not interested in the toy.

Later today, meowmy noticed that the reserve bottle on the water dispenser was empty. When she picked up the dispenser to refill it, she found the catnip mouse completely soaked in the bottom of the bowl. The small amount of water left in the bowl was brownish. Did the mouse really absorb all that water, or did some of us drink catnip tea?
