Arrival Story: Cannoli came from the same breeder as my other Ragdolls (Jaspurr, Aspen, Snowmitts, Picasso & Biscotti) and he's the half brother of Picasso (same fathers). About 6 weeks ago when I had spoken with my breeder, she was telling me about several kittens she had, a few being Creams and one Flame Lynx Mitted. At first I was considering a Seal Lynx but since I have several Seals, I decided on a Flame (red). I have always liked the Tabby pattern so this made my decision a lot easier when he came to the Flame Lynx. At first I was undecided but the more I looked at the photos, the more I was attracted to the Lynx boy. Both are beautiful kittens. Cannoli will be coming home on 10/2/08 and he'll be so spoiled and pampered just as all of my kitties are.
Bio: I was born on July 1, 2008 and I'm one of 7 siblings (2 males and 5 females). My daddy is also Picasso's daddy which makes me his half brother. I'm very excited to be going home to such a wonderful family who will give me unconditional love and attention for my lifetime.
*10/22/08~DAILY DIARY, ~DIARY OF THE DAY 12/1/08
Early this morning while everyone was asleep, Cocoa made his journey into Heaven... He gave no indication that he was ready fur the Bridge the night before and it came as a big shock to all of us... Cocoa was diagnosed not too long ago with Hyperthyroidism as well as having Cardiomyopathy for 8-1/2 years. He was almost 16-1/2 years old. Cocoa and meowmy had a purrry special bond and wow, what a meowmy's boy he was. They held that special bond up until the day he made his journey.
When meowmy came down stairs this morning at 8:15 am, she didn't see Cocoa and he didn't respond when she called him. She then looked over towards the dining room and saw him laying on his side, facing the patio glass doors. She had a bad feeling because he always answers her calls but this time, he didn't. As she approached him, he did not move so she knew something was terribly wrong. She picked him up and then collapsed while holding him in her arms, The night before, her dear furiend, Marie spent the night and everything was fine. Mom was crocheting while Cocoa was sitting on the sofa with her and auntie Rea Rea and they decided to go to bed at 12:30 am. Daddy was already sleeping since he had to get up early fur work. When auntie Marie used the bathroom at 2:15 am, she saw Cocoa in the flyer and he was fine. Daddy had to get up at 3:00 am fur work and there was nothing unusual with any of the boys. Meowmy and auntie Rea Rea took Cocoa to the vet at 8:30 and Doc Wray came up from surgery to check on our situation which was purrry nice. He said that Cocoa showed no signs of struggling to breathe and that he passed away peacefully at approximately 5:30-6:00 am. He also said that it was his heart that took him. He was such a wonderful kitty and such a good boy. Heaven gained a beautiful angel today but I know that we are all feeling so much pain as well as all of his wonderful kitty furiends. Cocoa will be privately cremated and returned back home the following Wednesday.
We will Miss Cocoa purry much but he will live furever in our hearts until we all meet again. Fly free purrecious Cocoa boy! You were a wonderful brother and loved so much!
Today is my 3rd Birthday and I'm so excited to be celebrating it with my entire family... Unfortunately, meowmy has to work this afternoon but only fur 4 hours. Mom can't believe that I'm already 3 and remembers the very first day she brought me home. That of course was the beginning of a wonderful life, filled with lots of love. Most of you already know that Monte Carlo is my daddy and I know that's where I get my good looks *giggles* but then again, my kitty meowmy is also purrry purrty.
Today is also my litter mate sister, Karisma's Birthday (Hooch & Family) so I would also like to wish her a pawsome day.
Meowmy is a bit behind with our Catster pages so she hopes to get caught up by the weekend. I don't want any of my furiends to think that we fell off of the face of the earth. Well, I think I'll spend the day napping which I do purrry well. Have a wonderful and safe 4th of July my furiends and thanks so much fur helping to celebrate my special day *blows kisses*
Sending a warm thanks to the following kitties fur their lovely Birthday gifties: My Family (pawty hat), PorkChop & Fam (cupcake), Hunter & Fam (cupcake), Karisma & Fam (hat), Bubby & Fam (hat), Toby & Fam (cupcake).
Today was a purry sad day as we learned that our dear furiend and auntie, Hazel Lucy made her journey to the Bridge at 12:30 pm as a result from renal failure. She was such a beautiful kitty who started the Purr Threads here on Catster...Hazel Lucy touched all of our hearts in such a special way and she will always hold a place in our hearts. Our meowmy is also saddened and shocked by this sudden news as she was not expecting it. Please keep Hazel Lucy and her meowmy, Julie in your purrrs & purrayers during this sad and difficult time. It is never easy to say good bye but I do believe that one day, we will meet with our families again. Love you auntie Hazel Lucy and always know that you will live on furever in our memories *wipes eyes* Auntie Hazel Lucy has touched our hearts and will leave a lasting impression with everyone that was blessed to know her. I know that angel's Picasso & Kashmere will show her around Heaven and I bet that the Bridge is having a big pawty fur her arrival. Beautiful wings fur a beautiful angel.
