Arrival Story:
I told one of my coworkers, who is involved in cat rescue, that I was interested in fostering pregnant cats & raising their kittens. She started sending me emails about local cats in need, and I picked up Anna Magdalena in March 2008. Shortly thereafter, Andrea Previn (then called Brownie) was turned into a local shelter as a stray with 3 kittens. The funny thing was that my coworker had run into Brownie on a previous TNR trip -- at the time Brownie was supposedly the cat of a woman who told my coworker not to take Brownie along with the other strays since Brownie was her cat & she "loved" her. Sometime later, though, Brownie had kittens, and the woman who "loved" her called the pound to come pick up the "stray" cat & her kittens. Unfortunately my coworker didn't find out about this in time to pick up Brownie before she was taken to the shelter -- so Brownie & kittens spent several days in the shelter before my coworker could bail her out. I picked up Brownie and the kittens from my coworker the next day since she was having her house treated for termites the next week, and I ended up keeping her for the duration.

I picked up Brownie on April 6, the birthday of conductor/composer/pianist Andre Previn, so I redubbed her Andrea Previn -- it sounds so much more elegant than Brownie! She is friendly with me, but does not like my other cats. She is a very pretty girl -- I think she may have a bit of Abyssinian in her background. Her three kittens are extremely playful and friendly (about 7 weeks old at this writing)-- I'm trying to decide whether to call them Bravissima, Brahms, and Bartok, or Chaos, Entropy, and Scherzando. . . every time I open the door to "their" room -- the kittens run out at warp speed and scatter over the house bouncing and playing! It takes forever to gather them up and get ready to go anywhere! Andrea is a watchful mom, and doesn't take kindly to my other cats. I don't know yet whether that's specifically because of the kittens, or whether she really would prefer to be an only cat. She and the kittens will be available for adoption through the sponsoring rescue group when the kittens are old enough. There is one red classic tabby male, one light grey mackeral tabby girl, and a beautiful darker grey classic tabby girl. Contact me via pmail for more info on adoption. Update 5/31/08- kittens delivered to adoption group. Now that she's not having to be a protective mom, she is more tolerant of the other cats, and she loves other kittens.

Well, it was one year ago today that I was adopted into my furrever home! My old foster Meowmi hadn't realized it ha been so long until she got a notice that I had received a yummy Shrimp Rosette from Big Harry, Patches, and furmily! Thanks for keeping foster Meowmi up to date! MOL! Purrrrrrrr. . . .

Much to my dismay, Meowmi loaded me into a little carry-box last Saturday & carted me off to an adoption show. She told me someone had contacted her wanting to meet me. Well, why didn't they contact ME? Huh? I ask you??!!

Anyway, we drove and drove & finally got to the adoption show. I suffered the indignity of having to sit in a cage all afternoon while people came and looked at me and talked to me. I didn't feel much like talking back, so I pretty much ignored them.

Late in the afternoon a young couple stopped to look at me, then Meowmi took me into a small room so the couple could hold me. They were pretty nice, I must say. They knew just where to scratch under my chin and behind my ears like I like it.

I had to go back in the cage while they looked at some young squirt Maine Coon-wanna-be. But in the end they chose ME! I went home with them to check things out - if everything works out, I'll stay!

I'll miss Meowmi, but it will be nice to have a home I don't have to share! Meow!

Well, no word from the prospective adopters, so foster Meowmi is listing me as adoptable again. . . but she didn't make me go to the adoption show today - she just took some of the kits. . . whew! I hate riding in the car!
