Favorite Toy:
His stuffed kitty and balls and pacifier

Favorite Nap Spot:
On my bed with his blankey

Favorite Food:

When he runs his rear end hops like a rabbit (like Manx cats are known for)


Arrival Story:
Someone abandoned him when they moved out of my complex. He was starving, filthy and sick, thus off I went feeding etc. though he wouldn't come close to me. Scared to death poor thing. After a month he finally trusted me enough to get into my lap on a blanket and I wrapped him up to keep him warm. He was sick and now is healthier than I am. LOL Rented a cat trap THINNNKING I could take him to a NO kill shelter here that keeps animals and gives meds etc. Wellllllllll, there is NO NO kill shelter. Thus, I had to pay another $300 cat deposit for him to be here with my other 3. If the manager knew it was "him" that I have here OHHHHHHH MY GOD! read the story and you will understand more.

The story that was put on CL in October asking for help. First of all this is NOT a sob story. An adorable orange/white with swirls on his side cat and totally NO tail was abandoned 2 months ago by people that live in this complex. He's only about a year old and a half old and has been roaming/hiding everyday and night. Stupid people throw things at him to chase him away etc. Picture this please......every night at 7 I look for him and I take a thick blanket for me to sit on in front of my car in carport so no one will see me. I put a blanket in my lap because he trusts me enough to jump in my lap ready to be loved and wrapped up to keep him warm and I cover him up with the blankey. He is craving human attention so much it makes me cry FOR REAL cry while I'm holding him and look in his eyes. He shivers when he's covered, I think he's getting sick from living outside and not eating much because he hides all day. I can tell he's starving by the time I see him because of how fast and how much he eats. About 20 hours or so of no food or water for him. His meow sounds like he has laryngitis and he has a stuffy nose, can hear it when he's breathing. He honestly is a true sweety. I also think he's partially blind, maybe because of malnutrition and his spine bones and the rest of him are boney for sure. When I go downstairs I take wet and dry food, bowls, warm watered down milk to feed him and more than just once. I have to sneak everything I do because people have told on me to the manager and I have gotten TOLD not to feed the cat they DO NOT want any strays on the property. Umm what about the stray people around here ahem! Thus, I sneak everything I do for the one I named Angel. After awhile, I start freezing myself because it gets cold and I'm down there awhile, come upstairs up and down up and down worrying about him. As like many other nights, I have sat in front of my car from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. with him in the blankey just like lastnight. Him in my lap all wrapped up him looking up at me with his eyes all wet like he's crying and sad and I always do the same darn thing CRY CRY when he's with me and when he's not....I worry so much and I love him. OK now it's 2-08, still no luck with my others NOT running after him wanting to fight. Have to keep them seperated allllllll day and night back and forth back and forth. 4 months of this and mama is burned out from that plus all the other things I do for him and the others ALONE no help here. Love him dearly deep in my heart, don't want to give him up WHAT can I do? Water on the others does not help not even a GLASS of water LOL

After 6 months and now loose together for the first time (while I'm here) there hasn't been any fights! Being on buspirone has helped tremendously PLUS the fact that all of us are in a new home the past week. I think ???? maybe there's not been any tussles YET is because this house is new turf to the gangsters Odie and Leo, and of course Skooter and Baby.......thus the bad boys havn't started with Baby.....and I hope they don't when they get toooooooo comfy and bossy here. I'm so glad I didn't give my cutie Baby away, never wanted too and glad he's still here cutie pie with personality to match. My son Shawn, that you see in the pic holding Googie about 6 years ago has a cat Rice in family pics as a baby though......who just turned 1 yr old. there's 5!! cats in this house. ugh!.......LOL So glad this is a big house but checking all the time who is where and when gets tiring but fights thus far. Sooooooo, there's my Skooter Baby, Odie and Leo BRATS, Baby and Rice. Baby now has a play mate....Rice. Wish us allllllllllll luck.


Mama says I can't stay here anymore please help

My story and about my step brothers hating me is on my main page. They are driving Mom crazy (and so do I) but I know she loves us. Leo and Odie want to tear me apart and I have lived here for 4 months and they still want to. We already had some bad fights because me and them slipped through something and off we went more than once did this happen. Nothing Mama has tried to stop how they feel about me has worked. Not even lots of water on Leo. I don't want to leave here, it's nice and warm, lots of good food and fresh water, blankets and all kinds of toys. Mom loves holding me lots too. I'm scared she will give me to somebody I don't even know and I will be in shock and emotionally messed up. HELP!
