Arrival Story:
Missy's birthdate is approximate. Her mom is a feral cat who seemed to come around and trust us. She had four siblings and sadly only one has survived thus far. When she became used to seeing us giant humans, after her mom brought her around, she warmed up to us and it was immediately clear she was a special girl. Since that time she has been a wonderful companion who loves to mommy everyone.

Missy is the mom of Sammy, Snoopy, Nicole and Kenny Lee. Because of her loving nature and natural mothering instincts- especially with her sister Pearl who came from a litter after hers we let her breed and have babies. Soon she will be off to the doctor to have "the operation". We just wanted to give her the opportunity to be a real mom one time and she rose to the challenge brilliantly.

Forums Motto:
Give Love and You Get Love!

Hopefully adopted:
Missy disappeared last year- we think another family adopted her because we never found her outside...every outdoor cat that has passed in our neighborhood we have found. She would visit a house across the street frequently. They moved and I suspect they took Missy with them not knowing she was our let's hope she is alive and well and cared for

Missy Parenting Tip 1: What's In A Name?

So while I was still pregnant daddy had a talk with me about names. He told me that he likes to name cats with names that rhyme with "kitty". It was certainly easier for me to learn my name that way. Missy sounded like kitty- for some reason that word and that sound is what we felines respond to when we are kittens.

When my kittens were born daddy started calling them by their names right away. Whenever he interacted he would use their names. When they opened their eyes it took only a couple of weeks for each to respond to his and her name.

I don't know if this has been scientifically proved but it has worked for daddy over the year so he suggest that if you are expecting a newborn try to give him or her a name that rhymes with kitty and they may learn their names as fast as my kittens did.

Love and Purrs,

Melissa (Missy)
