Quick Bio:
-cat rescue

July 24th 1996

Tabby and White

Attention, conversation, having his string toy pulled endlessly, sleeping dogs and people to nap on or near

Lack of attention, clumsy dogs, closed doors, baths, being crated, dogs who don't want to be my buddy

Favorite Toy:
Any pull string toy.

Favorite Nap Spot:
On top of stuff up high, near windows, in the middle of a busy walkway.

Favorite Food:
He likes nasty Lil' Friskies wet food but doesn't get it any more. It was VERY hard to break that habit - what is IN that stuff?

He does a great Steve Wonder impression, and he can hold a conversation... though no one but him knows what he is saying.


Arrival Story:
We got Mack and his littermate sister Mavis after our Lab Tippy died in late January 1997, from ADOPT in Naperville, IL. Mack was originally named Marvell, but was renamed Mack by his new Man because he thought that fit better. He and Mavis had just had their front claws removed and been neutered. They were very shy, quiet, and unassertive for the first few weeks at home. In Mack's case - cat, did that ever change...

Lives Remaining:
6 of 9

Forums Motto:
Pay attention to me NOW!

I Think I Might Be A Dog

I have gone to the Rainbow Bridge

I left this Earth on August 12th, about 955am EDT. I was born about the end of July of 1996, so I made it to 17 years old. I have never been much for typing, I always like verbalizing and napping much better. However, I do need to tell my family that I am ok, I am not struggling to breath nor in any pain. I'm up here with my birth family, and pets from my human family whom have preceded me to the Bridge. Man and Lady, I'm up here with Bella and the Lucies (the yellow Lab and the Black Lab) and Daisy, with Casper, Java, Nena, CoCo, and Josie the foster dogs. We all cavort around and keep an eye on our human and dog and cat family. I am so grateful that my sister Mavis is doing better. I know my Man feels bad that perhaps I could have lived longer if he had noticed I was in distress earlier. I want to tell him that it is summer and I know he was outside a lot, and I went and hid. As it was, he had to tear the house apart to find me, and he did take me in to the Vet to try to help me. And, when the Vet could not help, he held my paw and looked into my eyes as I left this mortal earth. I hated to go, but I don't miss the pain and weakness my body had.

Later, ehen the fur settles, I'll come back and record some Mack stories for Posterity. Oh, there were some doozies. Some of them, even my Man doesn't know about. So for now, I'll go back to playing and watching out, and when everyone in the house is sleeping, my spirit will come spend some time near everone, just like I did when I was alive. Rrrrowwwwwrr ROWWWWWW, everyone!
