Playing! Cuddling! Eating! Running! Jumping! Chasing! (You mean I have to choose??)
We don't know of any yet.
Darcy has a new favorite toy! She's discovered the ball inside the round track - she chases it and chases it until she has to take a catnap!
Favorite Nap Spot:
Curled up on her Meowmy or Daddy. She just loves sleeping on humans.
Anything in a can, and she loves cat milk.
Winning the hearts of all who meet her! She's also figured out how to run across the room, latch on to Meowmy's leg, and climb up into her arms. Ouch! Those little claws are sharp!!
Darcy was found at my workplace. After checking the neighborhood, it became apparent she'd been abandoned. Just a tiny kitten, she couldn't have been over six weeks old. As the designated cat-rescue-person, I naturally took her home with me.
Darcy is an absolute joy! She is an expert cuddler and loves nothing more than to wiggle under my chin and nap. She is a licker, too! She licks our fingers and faces just about any time we're holding her. She takes her tiny paws and brushes our cheeks and chins. When she's very, very happy, she waves her paws in the air! Our sweet angel-cat Dylan used to do that, too, and it's a very poignant reminder of the wonderful cat we loved and lost.
Darcy was named for the song "Darcy Farrow". I'm a guitarist, and I was playing that song Darcy was brought into the room and I saw her for the first time. It is the perfect name for her. She's just a Darcy!
UPDATE: 9/9/08: Darcy had her first vet check today. Like our cats Bo & Seven, she is also FeLV positive. It breaks our hearts, but as we've done with the other two kitties, we've committed to giving her as healthy and happy a life as possible. Bo is going to be four years old this spring, and so far, he's doing great. Seven turned one this summer and is also healthy. We're hoping and praying that Darcy will be strong and healthy for a long time to come. Please give her your purrs.

I'm flying in from the Bridge to ask you to help make a dream come true for me and other cats with feline leukemia (FeLV).
My Meowmy has visited several times with the wonderful folks of Blind Cat Rescue of NC. It is Alana, the director's, dream to build a sanctuary for FeLV cats like me and FIV kitties, too.
They are entered in the Pepsi Challenge and are so close to winning $50,000.00!!! Yes! The top ten projects will each win. We were in tenth place but now have dropped to eleventh and the contest ends on NOVEMBER 1. If they aren't back in the top ten by then, all hope will be lost.
I had FeLV while on earth...so did my sisfur Seven, my brofur Bo, and his dear littermate Cider. FeLV cats can have happy and fulfilling lives but we are killed immediately in shelters and many owners don't want us once they know we are positive. Please help make a sanctuary for us a reality but voting and spreading the word...we deserve to live, too!!
We are only ONE place away from $50,000!!!!! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE...vote...pass the word...make diary entries asking for votes...use every email address you have...send emails to friends asking for votes...anything you can think of to help make this dream come true.
Here are several ways you can vote:
1) Text 102422 to 73774 You’ll get a confirmation thank for voting text. Only your standard texting fee applies.
2) Go to http://pep.si/9g8Ojg and vote using your email and anyone else's you have! Set up alias accounts, if your provider lets you do that, and vote, vote, vote! Ask your furriends, family, and neighbors. Vote at work! (Don't get fired now!) MOL!
3) Log out and vote at http://pep.si/9g8Ojg with your Facebook page. Many kitties belong there as well as humans. My meowmy meets lots of nice folks there! Post on your status with the links so even more can vote!
This is such a wonderful chance for everyfur to make a real difference in the lives of cats. Time is running out! PLEASE help the FeLV and FIV kitties find a safe, loving home at Blind Cat Rescue!!!
Thank you fur reading my diary!!

My Meowmy asked me to sprinkle some magic angel dust from the Bridge today for a very special cause!
I have two Earth brofurs who are blind and one sisfur who is visually impaired. Here at the Bridge, I have LOTS of furriends who were blind while they were on Earth. AND my sisfur Scarlett is here, too! She was blind on Earth and my Meowmy loved her so very much! She was her firstest blind cat!
Did you know that even 'no-kill' shelters sometimes euthanize blind cats because they are considered 'unadoptable'?
Did you realize that a blind, black blind cat - like our Bones and Charcoal - stands virtually no hope of adoption?
That cats can become blind due to birth defects, trauma, untreated disease, and yes, even human cruelty?
Did you also know that blind cats love to climb??
That we love to play with cat toys??
That we run and jump and enjoy life JUST LIKE OTHER CATS?
Did you know that there's a very special place for blind cats? A place where they are treated with love, respect, and care? It's TRUE!
This heaven-on-earth for blind cats is Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary of North Carolina, featured in the June, 2010 issue of Cat Fancy. www.blindcatrescue.com
BCR is the dream and life's work of a very special woman, and the Sanctuary depends on the sponsorships of the cats and donations from caring people around the world.
But YOU can help BCR today and everyday in the Shelter Challenge at The Animal Rescue Site! It's FREE and EASY and it can truly make a difference.
Our Stevie, Bones, and Charcoal are some of the lucky ones. They found a loving, caring home, thanks to messages sent to my Meowmy from BCR! Other kitties need the resources only a Rescue can provide.
Won't you help by voting today and every day during the contest for Blind Cat Rescue of NC? (Don't forget to confirm your vote by identifying the animal photo shown after you vote!)
All the blind kitties will purr in gratitude!!

So many of you have supported Meowmy, Mama Terry and their friends' quest to find Justice for Eve, the sweet kitten who died shortly after being adopted from Okefenokee Humane Society in Waycross, GA. You can read all about Eve on her Catster page:
I asked Meowmy to update you on a positive development!! A man from the GA Department of Agriculture answered Meowmy's (third) email to that office! He asked for Eve's medical records, saying they were necessary for an inquiry to proceed. Of course, Meowmy sent them right away. So it looks like someone has noticed us!! PURRRRRR!!!
This may take time. (Has the government ever moved quickly??) We promise to keep you updated when we have news.
For all who care about Eve, please take a moment and sign her petition, if you haven't already. It's never to late to take a stand for all the animals still at Okefenokee HS. Thank you for caring so much!!!!
