Gray and White

When contractors come to the fix a clogged sink or paint a room or anything she's right there to greet them and stays with them til they leave, and she still loves Paisey

Not sure but she's anal retentive ab0ut covering in litter boxes....takes her at least five minutes. She also tries to cover food dishes when she's finished eating and when wants to shoves them on the floor.

Favorite Toy:
Sad to say Khails has become the Dowager Empress, but enjoys an occasional catnip treat.

Favorite Nap Spot:
Right now on the bed with me all day and sometimes under it in a boot box at night.

Favorite Food:
Life’s Abundance Premium Health Food for Cats

She's a shameless flirt with guys, and clearing every counter top and flat surface of items she considers her toys, which is pretty much everything.


Arrival Story:
I adopted her at Sunny Meadows...Safe Haven for Pets in Memphis, TN after seeing her on Catster and drove 700 miles round trip to bring her home. Its hard not to believe that Suleiman didn't have a paw in getting the two of us together. But KhaiLei has developed her own personality and aside from loving to be by me when I'm on the computer is nothing like Sulei at all. She is a girly girl and a wonderful foster Mommy to Paisey. Just a sweet girl in everyway....almost...One bad habit....she shoves things off my night table every morning around 4 a.m. and will continue shoving until I get up and feed her or everything is on the floor. 4 a.m. is a little early for breakfast as far as the rest of us are concerned. sunnymeadows.html

February 22, 2009. I'm finally able to write about KhaiLei's becoming an angel. In late November 2008 KhaiLei once again was stricken with Cholangial hepatitis. I was still in Greece and had been since the end of August. I got home on Sunday night, November 30th and knew she was in trouble. I took her to the vet the very next morning (Monday) and they immediately gave her IV's because she was so dehydrated and after two days started tube feeding her instead of force feeding (she refused to eat). She had lost six pounds, down from the 13 pounds she weighed when I left for Greece, to seven pounds. This time she didn't respond to treatment, slid into a coma Thursday morning and went to the Bridge around 1:00 that afternoon. I miss her terribly. She was the best little girl and my constant companion. I can't help but feel that she was only waiting for me to get home to tell me she loved me and say goodbye. She was the pushiest, most demanding of attention cat I've ever met in my life and I couldn't have loved her more for it. She was not one to hide her light under a bushel and happily greeted everyone who came through the door, small children included. She was especially fond of repairmen and loved to watch them work.. I wish I hadn't been gone so long because I'm sure I would have been able to save her if she had seen the vet sooner. She was at home with my husband, who thought she looked just fine. I'll never forgive myself for that. Its a comfort to know she's at the Rainbow Bridge with her beloved Beenie. December 17, 2006 As time goes by I realize how much I've come to depend on her steady presence in the house. She is the first at the door to greet us or any guest, always sleeps with me and is usually competing for space with my keyboard. Curls up on the chair in my bathroom and swats me on the backside when I'm drying off....too funny. I miss all that and can't wait until she does it again. I've been shopping for a new pink collar with lots of sparkley diamonds for her for Christmas and a new fuzzy pink bed.

So very sad today. We just learned of Buddie and McKenna going to the Bridge. Mom will practice avoidance of Catster once again. So many dear friends have passed this year and so many more since our first days here on Catster.

We deeply feel the loss of each them and our hearts go out to their grieving families.

Mom has been pretty sick and that's why I haven't been keeping my diary up to date. She's better now so I'll be very busy answering all my purr-mail and thanking all my friends for their loving wishes for my recovery.

I am TOTALLY back to normal. My nose and ears are back to their beautiful shade of pink and my fur is white again, not yellow. Alas, my shaved parts are very slowly growing the fur back. You'll never guess what food Mom finally got me to eat! Kitten food ....dry cheap kitten food...I love it. In fact we all love it.....we refuse to eat the Science Diet stuff, but I'm sure Mom will start making us eat it again now that I'm all better.

Must get busy with my mail.

Love and whisker kisses to all of you,


CHRISTMAS EVENING 2006 from KhaiLei's Momma

KhaiLei finally has forgiven me, thank goodness. This morning after her meds...she came upstairs to the den and didn't run away when I approached her. She just rubbed on the scratching post and did her "EB" thing (elevator butt), then raced to the stairs to the room she and I have been using since she's been sick. Up on the bed she went and rolled over presenting her tummy for a tickle...and purring madly all the time. As if to say....I finally understand Mom why you've been doing this to me and I feel GREAT now. Its sure nice to have my KhaiLei girl back.

She's actually in the dining room interacting with company. Being her normal adorable self.

This is the best Christmas present ever!
