Arrival Story: It's quite a long tale (even though his tail is short!). We first adopted another bengal from the same cat show where we found Colorado. But that Bengal who we named Mindy, who we miss very much to this day, had complicated medical problems. The cattery arranged for Mindy to live with a woman who specialized in cats with special needs. A year later the cattery phoned us up and said you must come and meet my latest litter. When I saw Napoleon, so tiny, with that face, we fell in love. We wondered about his age. He looked no more than 3-4 weeks old. But the cattery assured us he was 11 weeks old. And we took him home where he lives and plays with us everyday. We are so blessed!
Bio: Napoleon's first few weeks were tough. After the first week his low weight shrunk even more, down to 1 lb. With high protein food from the vet, we got his weight steadily up. He suffered through 'failure to thrive syndrome. Now look at him! Although he is 9 yrs. old now, he remains very kitty-like, full of energy. He's either eating , playing , knocking objects over, or asleep
Purrs, please! I haven't been eating much the last 4 days, I lick my bum too much, and my fur is being left behind on this chair and that couch. So Mum took me to the vet--got tests. Results tomorrow. The Pancreatitis word is rearing its ugly head once more. I was growling and hissing--got my nails done! And Mum was beaming--got my nails done.
I am 14 and I'm okay! I'm okay with my age and I'm okay with my health. I know I had a bout of colitis last summer but I'm not bothered by it anymore!
Thanks friends for your gifts and well wishes!
Now for my birthday, I got sung to but fed my usual. I tried to escape when 'they' came home from work. Now I wonder if I'll get a walk on a leash..Just cause it's my birthday. Mum doesn't like to take me anymore 'cause I howled all night asking for 'one more time'.
I'll be pretty happy with just a game or two of 'Micey' 'cause I usually win!
Friends, my pawrents were away for Easter and upon their return, I showed them all the Easter eggs I got. They were so surprised and wanted me to send some to you too! But lo' and behold none more of these Easter eggs were to be found!. So I thank you friends for thinking of me so and I do hope you had the 'Hoppiest' of Easters! Oh, and please enjoy this one on me!
