Red Tabby

Mommy, Food, looking at the birdies, cuddling, mouse catching.

Caesar never minded anything! After our apt. building was hit by lightning he was terrified of thunderstorms (before that he wasn't afraid of ANYTHING!!).

Favorite Toy:
The buggy (the cat dancer, I called it the buggy)

Favorite Nap Spot:
On the rug near me. The cat tree (top of course!) My computer chair. A certain spot on the couch.

Favorite Food:
Any food. He likes most people food, even fruit! One day we shared an entire cantalope!

He gives kisses. I say "Caesar give kiss", and he puts his face up for me to kiss him on the mouth! He used to jump VERY high after the cat dancer when he was younger, he would actually do back flips! Whenever I speak to Caesar, he ALWAYS answers.


Arrival Story:
One of the BEST days of my life was the day we adopted Caesar, another one was the day we brought him home! My first cat Tiger, died we had him with us for nearly 20 years. The following year, it was time to save someones life. I love Tabby cats, and Tiger was gray, so I decided that I wanted to save an orange tabby (I couldn't get an orange tabby out of my mind, he HAD to be an orange tabby). We went to The Animal Welfare League in Chicago Ridge. We looked at a lot of cats, and we saw Caesar! We had them bring him into the meeting room, and he walked on the floor, jumped on the bench next to me, and sat on my lap! The young man that worked there said that people liked him in his cage, but when they met with him in the meeting room, they noticed he had a short Manx tail, and decided that they didn't want him. We (my mom and I) knew then and there that Caesar was the one for us! His "bunny tail" as we called it made him eaven MORE HANDSOME!!! We didn't know that I was going to name him Caesar yet, but we knew he was ours! We adopted him on April 28th 2001. They estimated that he was 1-2 yrs old at that time. I put his birthdate at 4-28-1999. 1999 was his estimated year of birth, and we adopted him on 4-28-2001. One of the BEST days of my life!

Sadly we lost our brave boy on Feb. 19, 2008. He battled Lymphoma bravely, enduring chemotherapy and radiation treatments. I am not sure what happened to my sweet boy, but on that monday, he took a rapid downturn and he left me at 1:00 PM on Monday February 19, 2008. I miss him everyday and our house still seems empty without him here. I look forward to the day when he and I and my other wonderfull furrbabies will be reunited forever. Untill that day, I will continue to rescue and take in any animal that I can possible help - in the name of all of those that I have lost.

Today is my Adoption/Birthday, and although it is REALLY great at Rainbow Bridge, I do still miss my Mommy, Grandma, the baby, and my brothers. I would love to go home and cuddle with my Mommy, and thank her properly for taking me in, especially now, and especially because she is crying that I am "gone". I know all she wants is to be able to hold me, and kiss me like she used to, and tell me she loves me.That would be a great birthday present for me. I know that I can feel her, and she can feel me, but is not the same. All the birdie chasing, and catnip munching in the WORLD can't make up for a cuddle and a kiss. 7 years ago today I was adopted, and 10 weeks ago today I passed here to the Rainbow. What I wouldn't give for ONE CUDDLE. At least I feel better knowing that my Mommy is feeling the EXACT same thing. SOMEDAY we will have that cuddle, and we will never have to say goodbye ever again. Well, I better go, these butterfly's aren't going to chase themselves... Love Caesar

Yesterday was a hard day on my mom. She picked up my ashes, and empty carrier, at the vets office. I hated to see her so sad, especially when I am doing so well here at Rainbow Bridge. My mom blames herself for my death. She has a lot of would have/should haves. I know from my friends here that many of their mommies and daddies feel like that too. If I could I would go to her, and tell her that I am OK. I visit her, but she can't see me. I know this because she used to always look at me and tell me what a good boy I was, and I know that if she could see me, she would tell me that now! I think she kind of knew I was there a few times, and I know she talks to me all the time. Well I gotta go check out who is at the catnip patch! Love Caesar


Hello again, it's been a whole week....

I have been gone a week now, but here on Rainbow bridge it has only been a few minutes. It is warm and sunny here, and there are really nice places to take naps, not that I am tired, but maps are so much FUN. Speaking of fun, I can chase birdies, AND butterflies all I want! I can eat all the treats I want, and you should see the CATNIP here! It grows everywhere. There are streams filled with fish, and the tastiest cool water ever. The sun here is even warmer and and more cozy to lay in, I think it is made out of love. I say that because it talks to me, and tells me I am a good boy all day, and the sun tells me he loves me. My mommy always did that, and since she isn't here yet, I am glad that the sun is always shining on me, and loving me. I can play with all the other kitties, and we get along so well here, that they really are good company! There are ALL KINDS of other animals here and we all play together so nicely that I am sure that all the other animals mommies would be proud of them, just as I know my mommy is of me. I hear her tell me she is proud of me and loves me a lot, although I can't see her. I get the feeling that she is nearby, so I feel safe all the time, like when I used to lay on her blanket, so I could smell her. OK, I gotta go now, these birdies keep swooping down, BEGGING me to chase them! Talk to you soon - Love Caesar
