Arrival Story:
February 16, 2008 I was taking my dog for our usual 2 mile morning walk when part way thru we came upon what I thought was a kitten, sitting scrunched up next to the fence. The dog and I went back home where I grabbed one of my carriers, a towel, leather gardening gloves and drove back up to where I saw her. I was hoping she was still there. And she was. I didn't have too much trouble getting her into the carrier, she was pretty little. A trip to the vet showed she was negative on all the bad diseases, full of worms and dehydrated. The vet did the necessary stuff, sent us home with antibiotics and said 'this cat is between 1 & 2 years old'. Ellie now has a home where she is safe (she doesn't know it yet, I am still an ogre), there will always be food and no one will ever hurt her again.

I picked the date of 10/24/2006 as her birthday partly cause the vet said she is between 1 and 2 and also because that is the date my Mom passed away. It almost seems like Ellie is channeling my mom, the hissing and the attitude is very much how my mother was at the end and it will take a bit for me to get Ellie back to where she isn't quite the little witch.

I finally meowed for Mom last week. She was at that thing called a PUTER and I was laying on the floor looking cute. And I did it. I meowed. Two times. Mom just looked at me as if I was the most wonderful kitty in the world. I am but don't tell Bob. Anyway, Bob has been teaching me how to meow. He comes into the front room every night and sings really loud. Mom isn't a fan and usually yells at him to shut up. So I learned from Bob. Monday night I decided to try my hand at singing in the front room. WHOOHOO, I did it. And I as loud! Mom didn't yell at me, I think she liked it.

Things have definitely changed for me here. I let Mom start holding me in April, just before she started her new job. She was really excited about the whole thing. I'm not a fan of being held but I would like to sit on Mom's lap but not sure how to do that yet. I like to look cute and stretch to touch Mom while she is on the 'puter.

I now have full access to the house. I come out mostly after dark when I know the dog is asleep. I've moved from sleeping in the front room to the family room. Mom's room is right there. Hopefully I will be able to sleep in there with her sometime.


No more babies for me!!

That annoying lady took me to the lady doctor yesterday. It was scary there but they treated me nicely. The shaved my tummy and took out my insides. Mom said I was in 'heat', not sure what that is but it wasn't fun. Now I won't have that to deal with again. I was really out of it last night when annoying lady brought me home. She just left me alone, checked on me a few times (I think she was worried). I am still feeling icky, the doctor gave me a long lasting pain shot, I hope it works. Today I let the annoying lady pet me while I purred. I think I scared her again, till she realized it was purring. sheesh. And just now annoying lady came in to sit with me. She even laid down on the cold hard bathroom floor so that I could feel her hand on me. It made me feel safe and loved. She is an annoying lady but I think I will learn to love her.


I'm going to get fixed on Monday!!!

I am not sure what it means but Mom says I am getting fixed on Monday,they are going to make it so that I NEVER have to have babies again. Thank goodness, I am just a little thing, I shouldn't have babies. I know Mom is worried about this operation but I am sure the doctor will do good.

I've let Mom pet me. I swear she was crying a little bit when I allowed that. We've progressed a lot in 3 weeks. When I first arrived here I was so scared, I just hissed at her and looked at her scared like. Then Mom brought out this back scratcher thing that came from her parent's house. That was nice, to be touched and just know that maybe, just maybe, I was loved. Then my Aunt Adele, Mom's big sister reminded her to use the brush. OMG, that is the best. It was great. After a couple of times of that I allowed Mom to really touch me. And now, well, yeah, I like it. I let her pet me a few times a day and I think Mom likes it. Of course when I have had enough I push away from her and might even swat at her.

I still won't come out of the carrier when Mom is around, she is scary to me still but I am going to do it. I know she loves me, it is just taking some time for me to trust her.
