   Leave a treat for Keiser (1990-2007)

Keiser (La La), princess, darling, puss puss,

Kitty Complexion:
sleepyvery active
not curiousvery curious
not vocalvery vocal

March 1st 1990

Black and White

I like lying on a lap, being brushed, sleeping, eating, listening to music, watching movies on tv, human company, and my football team - the Brisbane Lions. But I like my human the most.

Humans who do not share their food, and humans who fidget when I am on their lap.

Favorite Toy:
I love my bears, and my football, and rope

Favorite Nap Spot:
Preferably on a lap; but I love my round soft basket-bed

Favorite Food:
My strict diet is cooked chicken meat (no bones). I do love ham, cheese, rare rump steak (not allowed), roast beef (not allowed), roast lamb (not allowed), and vegemite on toast, and potato chips...

Touch typing with my paws! Detection of 'non-cat' people to sit on their lap.


Arrival Story:
My brother Fatty (from the same litter, who crossed the rainbow bridge) lived with the humans Karen and Jarrod. When their human litter of two (twins) arrived, we decided to move next door. Luckily their neighbours couldn't refuse... and we (Fatty, until his death on 28 August 2004) have been there since early 1997, with one house move in June 2000.

This is the memorial page for Keiser cat, sadly leaving this life and his beloved humans in the early hours of Sunday, 4 February 2006. Keiser was a very sociable cat and loved to lay on everybody's lap, especially her humans. She knew what she wanted and wanted it now. Rest In Peace Keiser.

Forums Motto:
Sit down NOW, so I can lie on your lap!

My Tail of Devotion for Keiser (1990-2007)

Keiser managed to soften her way into just about everybody's hearts, especially those who came to visit and could not turn her away when she insisted on laying on their lap.

She demanded attention and always received it. Who could ignore her soft little meows and pretty face?

Her typical work day routine was:
- Wake me by sitting up in bed and politely meowing
- Before anything else was done, Keiser would have her breakfast
- During my shower, she would come in and sit on the bath mat chatting away, when I finished, she would hop in and have a licks of the water in the tub
- When I made my lunch for work, she would sit on the floor beside me waiting on her treat which was cheese, or ham, or something leftover
- Before I left for work, I would ensure she was settled on the couch and I would kiss her on the forehead
- When I came home from work, she would be waiting for me near the front door and we would have a chat about how her day was
- We would have a cuddle then she would have her dinner (she became a grazing eater)
- When I ate my dinner, she would want more of her dinner
- In the evening she would lie on my lap on the couch while we watch TV or use the laptop, and if it was too warm, nap in her soft basket next to me (I was always stroking and patting her)
- At bedtime, she would follow me in and then hop up on the bed. I would ask her if she had a good day and we would review the activities of that day.

She adored her weekends when I usually spent most of the day with her:
- She really liked me having a daytime nap on the couch and she would hop up and lay next to me
- We sometimes watched a DVD together with her on my lap.

Keiser's favourite things included:
- nice long brushes of her fur
- hearing her name being said (and even sung in a song)
- laying on laps, especially outstretched on a sofa
- being cuddled and hugged
- have a bristly chin rub against her forehead
- head and shoulder massages
- cheese
- potato chips
- ham
- red meat, especially beef and lamb, preferable rare (sadly she was no longer allowed these due to an allergy)
- chicken wings (again, she was no longer allowed bones as she could not digest them)
- having her head cradled by an arm and being cuddled laying on the couch
- playing with her ping pong balls (again, not after her heart murmur was diagnosed)
- having her human friends (and even strangers) visit so she could lay on their laps (she also made it known that was what she demanded by telling them as soon as they walked in the door)
- her football team, the Brisbane Lions, of which she was a paid up member
- her cat scratcher and she always sharpened her claws before bedtime
- looking out of the windows
- getting under the covers during winter for a cuddle

She listened to any type of music I put on, and on the rare occasion, made it known that it was not to her taste (I would have apologise and turn it off).

Keiser was very unique with one of the best personalities for a cat. She lived a long and mostly pain free life and had the opportunity to taste most (allowable) foods. I will miss her very much.

Rest in peace my sweet princess. You were the best.

This is Keiser's human.

Sadly, around 11.3opm Keiser suffered a seizure which was related to tumours rupturing causing internal bleeding. She went into shock. She could hardly move and started panting.

At around 12.50am, after the vet had made the diagnosis using ultrasound she decided that Keiser was not going to recover and helped her to go to sleep and cross over.

I am going to miss Keiser so very much. You were a brave and loving cat.

Rest in Peace my angel
