Since I am the oldest furkid in our family I would like to announce to all of our friends here on Catster that we have a new sisfur in our house.
Her name is KANDI and she is our Grandma's kitty, you see her Mom wasn't doing well living alone anymore, she had to have emergency surgery, went into a Skilled Nursing home what ever that is and now she is living in a board and care home near us....none of us know what all of this means, we just know there is a strange cat living in our house actually in my room.
KANDI came to live with us because our Mom promised her Mom a long time ago that KANDI would always have a home with us...None of Mom's sisters wanted her cause she isn't always nice, she likes to hiss and swat at us and even humans.
I should be mad but Mom tells me this is for the best that KANDI stays in my room, yes I was pushed out of my room bunk bed and all, even my warm bed with my very own heating pad and my spot at the window...it is hard on me, but this is harder on KANDI.
I am out in the front room yes I have my bunk bed, heating pad bed and I have a wonderful window with a seat to look out day and night. I am dealing with this move and we are getting used to KANDI being here.
KANDI is doing well considering what she has been through, she has never known any other home and it has been only her and her Mom. Now she is in a new home with all of us. What she must be thinking and how she must be feeling.
We are all praying that KANDI will be happy here, learn to love us and be part of our family, but for now she has to stay in my room.
Catster has helped my family in so many ways the biggest is helping Tallulah and Mom when QT was going through cancer, her surgery and chemo...cat Mom's have helped our Mom, so we are hoping you will help our newest member of our family KANDI GIRL...
Xena and family
Hi Sweet Xena! Kandi is a beautiful girl and I'm sure she will love you as soon as she gets to know you all better. It must be so hard to lose your home and your Mom :-( We think your family is wonderful to take her in and she is so lucky to have you!
Tully, your comment brings tears to my eyes. I was a lash-out kind of girl when Mommy found me. Always striking first at the humans. But then, my "sister" Little-One came into the picture, and I learned what it meant to be socialized with another kitty. I think Kandi will need some time, but with time she will know she is loved and safe. You are all very blessed to have eachother!
Love and purrs,
