This is a letter from my meowmy. She received the regular letter that went out from catster yesterday pertaining to Thanksgiving and saying about either submit photos or just a holiday note. But actually our meowmy hasn't been home in quite a while, she has been living at her daddys house, because there was a family problem where he went into the hospital and he needed emergency surgery. The truth of the matter is that no one thought he was going to live, so our meowmys father gave her legal guardianship of her two younger brother and sister. 12+15. Her half siblings. Then unfortunatley, I know I am telling strangers my problems but this is my only release. Unfortunatley, my 15 year old brother tried to end his life. So I have been living at my fathers, each day going home to my mothers to see my babies- Precious, Lovey and Chloe- Thank GOD for my mother. So I have been going back and forth from one hospital to another to see my father at his visiting times and then my brother at the psych ward at his times. So it has been a little hectic, but as soon as I can I will post new photos and I will put in new diary entries. Thank you everyone for listening to my woes. Happy Thanksgiving to you all.

Well its been over a year since Kabuki died and I still think of her everyday. Well not only is that because I loved her so immensly, but I have pictures of her everywhere including my car. All I can say is that no you do not forget about the lose of a pet especially when she was your best friend but it does get easier. I think it became easier on me because I got three kittens. What I am grateful for is that Kabuki could have made it hard on them. No one understands what I mean, but Kabuki if she didn't approve of me getting three kittens- she could have haunted them terribly that they would be so scared to even come into my room. But I am happy because she must approve- besides I gave her a good life and now I always talk about her with her sisters. I have a curio cabinet with her pictures and ashes and I bring them there and show them. I have a big 8x10 of Kabuki in my room that I always show my cats their sister, so Kabuki never feels alone. I loved her so much. I know some people might think I'm a nut- but oh well. I loved Kabuki with all my heart and I would never try to replace her- just try to fill a void that I have there- she can never be replaced---

Kabuki was a very spoiled cat. Well let me start from the beginning, I adopted Kabuki when she was six weeks old. I adopted her from the vets office that I use. Truthfully, when I saw her, it wasn't love at first sight, but at the time my mother said do NOT come home with a male they spray and she was the only female. So obviously she came home with me. Well after I got her home, how can you not love her. She turned out to be the best cat that I could have asked for. I loved her and she loved me and to prove that love she would bring me home squirrels, mice, birds and even fish heads out of the neighbors garbages for me. Then after six years of her being an outdoor cat I moved into an apartment and had to have her declawed. She was great, didn't cry to go out or try to get out. Well as Kabuki got older and had to go to the doctors more I realized that since she was now an indoor cat she became more of a recluse or however you would call it for a cat. So thank God it turns out my vet does house calls because I couldn't get Kabuki in the carrier. Well I could after some chasing and after some fearful peeing but it was just easier to have the dr. come to me. Well it turned out that Kabuki had OCD (over compulsive disorder) and a nervous condition.
But like I started off in the beginning of my story, Kabuki was a very spoiled cat. And this is the sad endin to Kabukis story. Back in November of 2007 I felt four lumps on Kabuki. The doctor did a biopsy on them and they came back a very rare kind of mammory cancer. They told me that it was so rare and aggressive that she would probably only live 30 days. Now me the animal lover that I am, wondered if I should put her to sleep because I didn;t want her to be in pain. Well my mother convinced me not to . Well long story short, she lost weight from being sick of course but lasted from November until June when I put her to sleep. It was June 25, my mothers birthday- and I watched Kabuki jump off my bed and go in the bathroom. I followed her. As I watched she pooped and when she was done her back legs gave out and she sat on it. I helped her out and cleaned her and then said mom I think it's time. She said why. I said because I can clean her forever but I want her to have her dignity. So I called the vet and he came within a half an hour. I held her in my arms an he gave her the shot to calm her. I didn;t know they don't close their eyes. Then he said now my assistant has to take her because she has to hold her legs. Well he tried both back legs and couldn't get anything because she was so dehydrated, tried the front leg now was gonna try the other front leg and said to me if I cant get this leg I'll have to go right in the heart. I said "oh no you won't- if you can't get it then you just stop" well he was able to get the leg- he said I think Kabuki heard you.
I don't mean to tell such a sad story but Kabuki was my life. I loved her and I will never forget her. I now have three kittens. And I have pictures of Kabuki all over my room so I know that she approves of them. Precious 8 months, Lovey and Chloe 7 months
