She loved catnip mice, pipecleaners and getting Toulouse into trouble
colored furry mice and pipecleaners
Favorite Nap Spot:
She loved to sleep in a donut shaped bed on mom's bed.
She would eat anything that Toulouse would leave her.
Her greatest skill was being able to wrap mom and Grandma around her little paw.
I worked at the United States Army War College as a civilian back in the late 80s and90's. Every week they put out a post bulletin and always had pets up for adoption. Well the Army only keeps homeless animals for 3 days and puts them down. Being the cat lover that I am, ran over to check out this adorable all white with deep blue-eyed kitty! I had to have her! The vet didn't have any records on her but guessed she was about one years old. I quickly adopted her and took her home to meet the rest of the family. Well, I lived in an old Victorian home with a coal bin down in the basement. When I brought Kugyani into our home and let her out of her carrier, she darted for the kitchen/basement door! "OH NO, I screamed and ran down the cellar after her. I couldn't find her and then realized that she had found a space in the coal bin tiny enough for her to crawl in between the bin and the wall. After a stressful day at work, this was not what I needed. I tried everything to coax her out, but no go! Dressed in a white dress, I was so upset and worried that I just sat down on top of the coal pile and began to cry!!! We had already tried calling the Fire and Police department but they said the only way we could get her out was to tear down the wall. Frustrated and worried, I sat down and cried my eyes out! About 5 minutes later, I felt something on my shoulder. Yup, it was Kugyani. I was so happy to see her and very relieved. Kugyani was no longer all white, but neither was I; so Kugyani got her first bath. She fit in so well with the rest of the family and it didn't take much to fall in love with her! She now had a new home!!!
Kugyani, was a stray cat and I really didn't know much about her. The vet checked her over and said she was in good health. Since she was all white with deep blue eyes, the vet checked her hearing. Not sure of the validity of this, but mom heard that all white kitties with deep blue eyes were born deaf. Well, she was okay. She was so tiny and always reminded us of a tiny bunny especially when she curled up for a nap. My co-worker's husband taught Japanese history at the College so they named her for me. Kugyani (koo-yanni) means "cat" in Japanese!
A year or so later, I had to move home to live with Grandma to go through further surgery. Toulouse had been born just several months before we moved home, so this was a new adventure for T & K. Grandma fell in love with both of them, and got very attached to Kugyani. Poor little thing had so many allergies and colds for years and 4 years ago she developed pneumonia and we sent her sadly to the Bridge. She and Toulouse were quite a pair together. Kugyani was always getting into trouble and when she got caught.... she batted those big blue eyes and poor Toulouse caught the heat! They played and fought like typical brother and sister. Toulouse still misses her and so do I!!!
Live long enough to avenge my brother T.
