Arrival Story:
A neighbor with whom I worked, told me about a cat that had showed up at her house hungry and cold in 20 degree weather. She and her husband had been feeding her and making her a bed in the window well. They decided to keep her, but the cat did not like their male cat. She asked if I would take her. (She knows I am a sucker when it comes to animals in need) I had had cats years before, but since I am allergic, I was not sure I wanted to take this one; HOWEVER, since I was sure it was a cat that I had seen at my house before and she was such a sweetie I said I would give it a try. But first the neighbor and I made a pretty darn good effort to find the cat's owner. I just knew it belonged to someone close by because it had been at, in fact in, my house before! Nobody seemed to know anything about the cat, so late one afternoon, my neighbor and her husband walked around the corner of the block and brought my new friend. She was of course a little afraid, but settled in. I let her outside and watched to see where she would go, but it was almost always just up the drainage ditch out behind my house. She always came back here. It took about a year before she really ever bonded with me, but all of a sudden she started sleeping with me on the upper corner of the bed. That summer she started losing weight and her eye looked really odd, so the vet tried her best to treat her. She wasn't getting any better by Thanksgiving however, and I drove her 4 hours to a university veterinary clinic. After MANY hours of poking and prodding, they finally diagnosed her aliment. Hystoplasmosis (sp). She had lost nearly all of her sight in one eye, she had small lesions I didn't know about, she had a very bad lung problem and a heart murmur. Since Hysto is most common in Louisiana, and areas like that, it was easy to see why it was not an quick diagnosis. But, after many months on "liquid gold" (very expensive) medicine, she finally got her lungs clear, gained some weight and kept on going! Her biggest issue then was her new "sisters"! I made her stairs to get on my bed and she quickly learned where those steps were. She knew her way around the yard pretty well, and since she couldn't see to jump over the fence, she didn't go AWOL anymore. She LOVED being outside! (I think mostly to get away form ornery sis Snickers!

In the winter of 2010, Mochie started losing weight again and her right eye had blood in it. After several trips to the vet and test to dispel the possibility of the histoplasmosis returning,it was determined she had CRF. Not wanting to put her through any more stress, I opted for a maintenance course of action. With special food and supplements, Mochie fought to live. The disease was probably made worse because her body had been through so much fighting the histoplasmosis. She finally got so weak, she could no longer eat or stand and I had to make the horrible decision I had been dreading. I took her lovingly to the vet and we had our goodbyes.I knew she would let me know when she couldn't go on and that is exactly how her life ended. With a sad, I love you, but help me look in her eyes that I knew she was ready. She is resting in her special spot in the back yard that she loved so much. Her sisters and brother miss her still even though it has been a month. Snickers still looks for her on my bed, Gutter looks and smells the yard for her and Onyx knows she is no longer here. She truly earned her place in my heart where she will remain forever.

I was here first, I am the special one, but I am the last one to get a diary! hmph.......I should be very upset, but I am not. I really just don't care, nobody needs to know what I think anyway. I would rather just be here with mom alone, but oh no, she had to get a whole herd of cats-well just 3 more, but sometimes it seems like a herd. You see, I am blind, so when they come running at me or makes nosies, I get a bit scared and upset.....well, wouldn't you? Oh well, I get the best spot for sleeping! I get to be at the top of mom's bed -right next to her pillow.... pretty special, I am.............yes! I am! Special!! phffft!
