Quick Bio:

Orange Tabby


Arrival Story:
Charlie was turned in to the animal shelter with two other siblings. All three had CH (cerebral hypoplasia). It is a condition that causes kitties to lose control of their motor skills so they walk funny and are clumsy. Two of the kittens died at the animal shelter, making Charlie the only survivor.

The shelter explained they had trouble feeding him. When we first got him home we put some KMR on a plate and Charlie dove right in! He was soooo hungry. For the first little while, he lived in our bathtub because it was a nice "play pen" for him. As Charlie got older, he better adapted to his disability and can climb the stairs, pull himself up to the top of the cat tower, jump up on the bed. I think just about the only thing I haven't seen him do is jump up on the counter or table. Every once in a while he does fall over in the litter box and requires a bath, but thats the only "special" care he needs. I highly recommend adopting a CH kitty if you come across one because I swear this condition affects their personalities too. Charlie is the 3rd CH kitty we have had within our family, and all three have been such fun kitties. Each of them stayed kitten like in their behaviors and loved to play. One was even a therapy kitty because he was so sweet and gentle.

I also want to thank Gaia for the emerald. That was so sweet of her and she didn't have to do that to thank me! Gaia had her leg amputated and I'm happy to hear she is doing well. Ava sent me some roses. I got kisses from Liberty and Beepers & Ashlynne. I also have more treats than I know what to do with. Mommy isn't sure where they came from cuz my whole family has a million bazillion treats, each! Mommy knows that must have taken a long time! The only thing she can think of is maybe a bunch of kitties got together and put lots of treats on all our pages. We can't believe someone would care about us so much! Thank you


OMC! Rub my tummy for good luck!

Seriously, something must be in the water I am drinking! Skeezix tells me I was picked in one of the Valentine giveaways and I won a kitty nip heart for myself and for a special furriend Gaia. Can you believe it? Yesterday I was a Daily Diary Pick and just over a week ago I was Cat of The Day! Not to mention winner in the Sleeper Category and a winner in the Halloween Costume Contest a few short months ago. So if you are looking for some luck, rub my tummy and maybe some of this good stuff will rub off on you! I better go wake up Mommy so I can tell her the good news!

Wow! I'm a DDP today! I must have some sort of good luck streak going or some good luck charm I don't know about. In the past 5 months I have been a winner in the Halloween Costume contest, Winner in the sleeping Cat Category of the Worlds Coolest Dog and Cat Contest, Cat Of The Day, and now Daily Dairy Pick!

Its great that I'm getting all this attention, but I feel kinda bad because today is Skye's and Pretty Girl's. They are turning 8 years old so now they are old fogies! If you get the chance you should send a head bonk their way. Later today we are celebrating and we are also celebrating Chewy's birthday too (her birthday was a bit ago but she wanted to wait to celebrate it because she is turning 8 too and didn't want to be the only old purson in the house).
