Arrival Story: Solomon is an answer to prayer. After I lost Buster several months earlier, I longed for a cat that wanted to be around me all the time, cuddled, held, and loved. I came close to adopting but every time I considered doing so, the Lord told me not to adopt a cat, that He would put one in my path. It was a long and hard wait. In November 2008 a stray orange cat came looking for food at his former foster mom's home and she took him in and cared for him. She and I both prayed about him and the Lord revealed that this was the cat He wanted me to have, and that his name was going to be Solomon. After a few weeks, in mid December 2008 Solomon was ready to be adopted. He was brought to my home to live with me and my 2 other cats. He has truly been an answer to prayer and is a great cat, always wanting to be near me, giving kisses, nudges & headbonks, and even sleeping next to me on my pillow.
Solomon was probably someone's house cat at some time, since he's not afraid of people and craves attention.
Bio: Solomon is a former semi-feral cat and is FIV positive. In spite of this, he's a very sweet, affectionate kitty who can't get enough loving and gives headbonks and nudges freely. He also gives kisses to his mama!
I is sorry mama didn't post any diary entries fur a while. Mama's been stressed out a lot. She said it's cuz she's getting older. MOL Really? I didn't know humans get more stressed with time.
But it's kinda good I guess cuz mama has to stay home with us, and of course I get to be her bedtime buddy! I LOOOOVVVVVEEE to sleep with mama. I sleep on her pillow, knead on her head (as gently as I can), and purr contentedly to sleep. Of course sleeping is my specialty, MOL! ;)
Purrty soon I will be celebrating five years of living with mama! It's been just wonderful living here...oh sure, Daniel picks on me, but I have a home, a full food dish, a loving mama, and a sisfur who actually likes me...what more could a guy ask fur?
Of course mama says I could be older or younger since nobody knows (not even me) how old I am. But I have been with mama fur almost five years (in December 2013) and my vet said I was between five and 10 THEN...so I am probably 10 now.
I hope mama will have something special fur me!
Mama furgot to tell you we found another lump on me, under my right front leg this time. We are purraying it's just a sebaceous cyst and keeping an eye on it. Mama says no vet visit unless it gets bigger since they know I am prone to them (cysts).
I'm doing lots better these days. Shortly after my last entry I started to come out more. When mama got out the bowl with the warm water, antibiotic ointment, and towels I ran. But she got me and cared fur me. Once she put the ointment on my wounds it made them feel sooo much better. Now they are nearly healed up and my fur is growing there again.
Mama wanted to take today off to be with us but her boss said no. (She has a mean boss.) Oh well.
