Arrival Story:
On my 21st birthday, my dad took me out to a restaurant. I let my brother drive me there in my car. When we were about to leave, he hesitated when getting into the car. I asked him what he was waiting for. He said, "I can't go anywhere. There's a kitten behind the tire." I said, "Make it get out of the way." He said, "I'm trying, but it won't leave." In the meantime, I heard these shrill "MEOWs" coming from outside the car. Finally, I said, "Oh, just pick it up, and let's go." When he handed her to me, she was nothing but whiskers, giant ears, and a big tail with barely anything holding her together. She was emaciated and dehydrated, but as soon as she was being held, she purred loudly and fell asleep. For days she did nothing but eat and sleep until her tummy was as round as a little tennis ball. Then, she turned into a normal frantic little kitten! Now, the tennis ball is more of a basketball, and she is no longer frantic. She has grown into her ears and tail and has now become the lady of the house.

Last Goodbyes...

I held on for a long time, but in the end, I couldn't stay any longer. I went over the Rainbow Bridge yesterday, October 24, 2007 at about 5:00pm. I was not feeling well at all. My bowels were impacted, I had cancer, and my kidneys had failed. Even so, I was not feeling much discomfort or pain until a few days ago. I was taking lots of medicines. After I came back from the vet visit that I mentioned in my previous entry, I was feeling OK. Then muscle wasting took away my ability to get around. I didn't care, since that meant I was waited on hand and foot! Everything was brought to me. I got to eat whatever I wanted. If I got messy, Mom cleaned me up right away and kept me comfy. But after a time, I didn't want to eat much anymore. Mom noticed that something was wrong. That was when she found my impacted bowels. She took me to the vet, but my regular vet wasn't there. The new vet said there was no reason to give me anything for the impaction, and that I should be put to sleep. By that time, I felt very very bad. Mom scheduled my final appointment, then took me home to say my last goodbyes. The impaction was still making me very uncomfortable. Even though the vet said there was no point, Mom tried giving me an enema anyway. It worked. I started to pass my obstruction. It took a long time, but finally it was all gone. I was so relieved! It felt much better to have it gone, but it had made me very sick, and I was already sick to begin with. Without the impaction, I was much more relaxed. When I went to the vet for my final visit, I was ready to go. I was prepared to lie there in my blanket and get my last shot. Unfortunately, it didn't go well. Because of my kidneys, I was very dehydrated, and the vet couldn't find a vein. She stuck me four times before I was finally able to go to sleep. It was all for the best, though. I am at rest and peaceful now. I am not in any more pain or discomfort. I am looking forward to seeing Clay again and my old best buddy Sean who I grew up with. I lived a good life and had lots of good experiences and adventures. Mabye now that I have so much time on my paws, I will share some of my memories here in this diary. Thank you for everything you have done for me and for my family. Thank you for the prayers and good wishes you have offered. They were all worthwhile. Everything is good now.

Till we meet again,



Please Pray For Me

It may not be the best time to start a diary. I am very sick and may die soon. I hope that anyone who reads this will say a prayer for me. It is late at night as I write this, and I am feeling very weak. I am severely dehydrated and can only barely eat or drink. I am going to the vet tomorrow, so I hope that he can make me feel better. I don't really want to go, but there aren't many more choices for me. If I do go over the Rainbow Bridge tomorrow, or whenever I go, I promise to visit here often and reminisce about the time I spent with my family.

Remember to say a prayer for me!
