September 10th 2008


cuddling, playing,eating, hugging, and being in mommys hair

when he's trying to nap next to you and you move,when you luagh at him, when you pet another cat instead of him,and when you play to rough (I.e my 3 year old son)

Favorite Toy:
a blue mouse pad bouncy tail thingy with a bell on it from petco, human hands ,and rinbbons, oh and a lazer pointer! Lets not forget the backyard littermates we are now keeping (other kittens)

Favorite Nap Spot:
when I'm sleeping he loves to curl up near my face on the pillow. The closet, the floor, and my sons bed

Favorite Food:
Chicken! and his kitten food for now

Hair grooming (human hair), talks with chirps and melodic sounding meows when he needs something, melts hearts, shoulder riding, and climbing anything and everything.


Arrival Story:
I was delivering some flowers and I saw a kitty in the gutter, I thought he was dead because he wasn't moving. I went over to him and I noticed he was breathing he was really little no more than 4 or 5 weeks old. I thought he was sick and I asked the people who's house he was in fromt of if he was thiers or if they knew who he might have belonged to. They had no Idea so I had no choice but to take him home and since it was a friday wait untill monday to take him to a no kill animal shelter. When we got home after picking up some temporary supplies for him I gave him some kitten formula and got him drinking some water too, he perked up. He had no flease, no appearent sign of being sick after 24 hours of having him so I'm guessing since he was so little his problem was dehydration. Anywho come to say monday came by and by then my son my boyfriend and I were all smitten by this lil guy, I'm guessing since I found out his breed, someone abandoned him thinking they couldn't make any money off of him since he has a Gimpy tail.

I am the most loving kitty mommy has ever had. At night I snuggle in her hair and turn on the loudest of my purr settings and knead away untill we fall asleep. During the day when mommy is online but mostly when she's on catster I climb up into her lap then if she has her hair down i lay on her chest snuggling and giving her eskimo kisses, head bonking, and kneading. I am actually my human brother Ethan's kitty but I love mommy to pieces!

Lives Remaining:
8 of 9

Forums Motto:
I do the macho walk!

When gimpy was a teeny tiny kitten I took him with me to the flowershop where I volunteer, He loved going on deliveries with me, he would ride on my shoulder looking out the window as I drove to deliver the flowers. Back at the shop he was content to staying in a big box filled with strings paper and balls for him to play in those times we couldn't. When he got big enough where he didn't need my care I decided he would start staying home, he missed me but he was never alone, 1 week after I found him we discovered 4 new little kittens in our backyard, 2 of them have a permanent home with us (Oliver and Princess). Oliver is Gimpy's best bud they play and romp around all day long, princess is more like a girlfriend to gimpy than a sister or friend but she's still got a speacial best buds bond with her brother oliver. recently as of january '09 Gimpy developed a stomach infection and got a fever that reached up to 106.9, you can read about his symptoms and storied within his diary, But i was seriously worried he was dying, he is pulling through though and even though it's only been a day looking at him you can hardly tell he's sick.

ok so there are these rabbits that have been hanging around the back yard that I LOVE to stalk, the female who we call Rover chases me back. they had baby rabbits in our back yard before, 2 survived and are now big enough to fend for themselves, and we don't know if there are any others from that last litter. Mommy Knew Rover had babies again because she was all nice and fat and slow and then a couple weeks ago she got really skinny and flabby at her belly. Anyways Mommy comes home today to find out that I had gotten a baby rabbit out of thier den and mommy is hoping the baby rabbit will be ok... I was just doing what kitties do so i didn't get in trouble... mommy is just sad i hurt a lil bunny... Grandpa dug out the rest of the baby rabbits and now all 5 babies are safe in a bunny cage untill they find homes or get big enough to fend off cats. Darn though granpa had to go and ruin my first hunting experience MOL!

Catster is such a fun loving place, with lots of loving families with kitties that just mean the world to them. We All make lots of furriends and learn to love them as well even if we talk alot or just a little, and I'm sure because of how dangerous life itself is all of us have lost a furriend or more here on catster. Tradgically so my Furriend Shasta, a very very sweet kitty, who lived and loved dogs was attacked by thier neighbors chow that got out and has passed to the rainbow bridge. His mommy is being really strong and has wrote a diary entry to let all of his furriends know of the incedent but I would appreciate it for those of you who love to leave rosettes treats and gifts to view his page and show his family some support.

Good bye Shasta will meet you at the bridge some day.

your furriend Gimpy
