Arrival Story:
One look into those eyes, and we were goners. We brought this little angel into our home, to be our 32nd inside cat! He was rescued by a shelter we support, and he desperately needed a home with love. One thing we never run out of in this home, is LOVE. Thank you for welcoming this little guy to Catster!

Bio:
Our little gray guy is a bouncing boy, full of kittenhood joy! He is very affectionate. After only a short quarantine period, he began to play and chase with the grown cats. He especially likes the youngest, Larke, and she is enjoying a playmate closer to her own size. Riley liked and licked him from day one! Pete had his usual hissy fit for a couple days, but quickly realized his own love was not in jeopardy, and made friends too. Sophie seemed to be looking out for him, in a motherly way. He is so tiny, running around! We haven't had a baby this little in a while. We had some health concerns because his abdomen was very bloated, and stayed bloated. He was checked for parasites, and given medicine. When his tummy still stayed huge, we had a sonogram done, which revealed no masses, tumors, or fluid build-up. He does have one slightly underdeveloped kidney, which we will keep an eye on. This little guy only weighed 1.8 pounds, even after two days of feedings. His eyes are a beautiful shade of green/blue, but may change as he ages. UPDATE: Dalton's eyes became a lovely shade of light green. He remains a tiny boy, but he is still so full of energy. He loves to play, and will make a game out of anything...a plastic spoon, a bottle cap. No need for expensive toys with this little guy. At night he often climbs between us to "say goodnight", before choosing a permanent spot. We have really grown to love this babe more and more. Since we lost Zack, we have caught ourselves glancing at him, and thinking it was Zack, just for a fleeting moment. Those would be big paws to fill, but if any cat can do it, Dalton can! Thank you for reading his story. UPDATE: Our dear little boy passed away during the night of March 7th, 2015. He was never ill, we can only guess he must have hurt himself. His favorite pastime was tearing across the living room shelves and making daring leaps. I would hear what sounded like thunder and smile to myself knowing it was only little Dalton racing across the shelves. I'll never hear that sound again. Oh baby boy, Rest in Peace and know I will forever miss you.

Dalton's Diary


Beautiful Memorial Picture

I've just got a moment, they keep you real busy here at the Bridge at first. Zack says that's so you won't miss home so much, kinda like Boot Camp.
But I had to let everyone know to come see my beautiful new picture that Big Harry and his big family made for me! Isn't it nice? Kate got one too but mom hasn't put it on yet because she can only use the computer a little at a time until her arm heals.

Thanks Big Harry and your pawsome momma!

Purrz,
Dalton

*Dalton folds his new wings back and tears across the meadow*

Wow, these add lots of aerodynamics! They won't let me use them to fly yet, I have to finish flight training at the Bridge Angel Flight School first. Then Enzo and I will have races!

I've got loads to study so I just wanted to give some special thanks to all the wonderful families that sent such comforting messages and gifts to me and mom. She cried as she read every one today and I tried to send her some love and tell her I'm gonna be fine here. I know she still wants me back home. Wish I could go there too.

Well, I have a tree to climb, a pond to enjoy watching the fish, and many angel friends to catch up with...oh and study my flight manual.

I'll also be writing some purrsonal thanks to everyone soon too.

Luv & Purrz,
Dalton

 

Trip To The Vet

Did everyone have a nice Easter? I did, but this afternoon I was doing the "Bunny Hop". Mom said, "Dalton, what's wrong with your paw? I squeaked a little when she touched it, so she called the vet.
In the carrier I went. I was quiet as a mouse on the ride over.
When my vet checked me over, he found a tiny cut on my paw. He said it might be a bite, but there was only one place, so mom thinks it was a cut. Plus, my siblings don't normally bite, except for Pete, who likes to bite the back of our necks. He must have watched too many vampire movies when he was a kitten. Anyway, I am gonna be fine, I just have to take some antibiotic pills for ten days. The vet said I should be feeling lots better in about two to three days. I'm already feeling better to be home.

Also, while I was there, there was a lady with a beautiful Seal Point Siamese wrapped in a towel. His name was Cherokee, and he was going to the Bridge.
His mom let mom love on him while they waited. Cherokee was 18 1/2 years old. He was blind and deaf, but they said he still purred nonstop, and even with hardly any teeth, he ate the dogs food. Mom said cats are so remarkable. They adapt to whatever life throws their way.
I was hoping our friends will say a prayer for Cherokee and his family.

Uh oh, here comes dad with the "piller".
*looks for a place to hide*
*ssshh, don't tell him that I'm under the bed*

Extra quiet purrz, Dalton
