I was born sometime during the summer of 1992 because Momma and Paw Paw adopted me as a kitten in Septemeber of that year. Since Momma didn't know for sure what my actual birthdate was, she chose one for me, June 10th. Daddy's birthday is in April and Momma's is in May so she told me that I got to have June.
My story all started the day that Momma and PawPaw came into the pet store where my sibblings and I were living until someone adopted us. Momma stood at the window to the "Kitten Room" peering in at us. She must have liked what she saw because she had a big smile on her face. My siblings and I all looked alike so I guess it was just the luck of the draw or karma or something that caused Momma to scoop me up into her arms and never put me back down. I heard her telling PawPaw, "This is exactly what I want." PawPaw tried to talk Momma out of adopting me, telling her that it wasn't a good time to adopt a kitten because they were going on a trip from Florida to New York very soon. That didn't seem to matter to Momma. "We'll just take her with us!" Momma proclaimed. And so they did. On the way home that day, Momma held me in her arms and told me, "I know you are scared right now, Little One, but you are going to have a very good life." And so I have.
In a few days I will be celebrating my 20th Birthday. I am a lot thinner than I used to be because I have a disease called Hyperthyroidism. Momma and Daddy put medicine in my ear twice a day to help me combat the effects of the disease and I have to admit that I do feel much calmer now that I submit to having this done to me 2 times a day. I also had two troublesome teeth removed last Friday so now I'm also being given some anitbiotic liquid twice a day plus some Buprenex for pain.
Momma just finishied reading a wonderful book called "Dewey" about a beloved Library cat in Iowa. At the end of the book, Dewey was 19 years old and suffering from cancer so he had to go to the Rainbow Bridge. Momma wept for Dewey and the lady who loved him with all of ther heart, while she stroked me as I lay next to her in bed.
I know some day my time will come to go to the Bridge too but for now, I know that my Momma and PawPaw are doing every thing in their power to keep me comfortable and that includes giving me lots of love. Momma has certainly kept her promise to me, the one she made 20 years ago. I have lived a very good life, indeed.

We have come together as a family to express our felines in this diary entry. Momma is always telling us that we are gifts from Heaven to her and Paw Paw because we bring so much joy, laughter, and love into their hearts. She tells us we are the best Christmas purresents in the world and she gets to unwrap and enjoy the gifts of "us" every single day of the year. Christmas time is special to all of us because it is the day that we celebrate the birth of the baby Jesus, who was God's great gift to mankind (and catkind too) but we also know that we can enjoy that blessed Christmas spirit every single day because we are here together as a family. That is a very special gift, indeed.
We want to send a special and loving thank you to all of our Catster furrends for coming into our lives and warming our hearts with your photos, comments, and rosette prezzies throughout the year.
We are honored and thrilled to have received a whole big box of goodies from our dear Auntie Barbi and her darling family. Aria and Bitta were given lovely holiday dresses from their beloved boy-furrends, Jaspurr and Snowmitts. Bubby received a pawsome striped polo shirt from his beloved Kashmere, who is now watching over him from Heaven. The whole family is enjoying a bag of Friskies Party Mix Milled Grill Crunch treats, a tin of White Meat Chicken Fancy Feast Appetizers, candy canes, darling Christmas sox, a gorgeous Swarovski Elements Angel ornament, wonderful sparkly toy balls, and an adorable Christmas card!
We are so blessed to be loved and adored by our parents and to belong to a wonderful and caring cat community like Catster.
Wishing all of our dear furrends a joyous Christmas and the most pawsome New Year imaginable!
All our love and purrs,
Aria, Bitta, Mikey, Charm, Tattiana, Simon, Bubby, & Katie
