Arrival Story:
Rusty was adopted from our shelter when he was around 6 months of age, just two months before we moved into a new home. To get him adjusted to a second new home so quickly, we would often take him to the new house while we were getting ready to move in. He would race through the empty house from top to bottom, it was hysterical to watch. When moving day came he was very well adjusted to his new home.

We have since acquired three other cats and he has been a pretty good sport about it. He is especially sweet and loving with the Skittles, the youngest cat. He will groom her as if she was his own.

Today I made my journey to be with the angels. I was 15 1/2 years old. I passed quietly in Mommy's arms with the help of out vet. My Moms are very sad, they knew this day was coming, but didnt think it would be so soon.

I was diagnosed several months ago with Chronic Kidney Disorder along with having several bouts of pancreatitis along the way. I would not touch the special kidney food, no matter how hard they tried to give it to me. So they tried to watch the protein count in what I ate and also tried to stay away from the rich and fatty things that would cause my pancreatitis to flare that meant goodbye to bacon, ham and cheese...some of my favorite table treats...although they usually would let me have a little taste. With the CKD I lost weight and muscle. I was down to 9 pounds, half of my regular weight. I ate small meals several times a day, but couldn't keep weight on. Not related, but I also lost my hearing. I was completely deaf...they could run the sweeper right next to me and I wasn't bothered at all. I even learned some sign language.

The last couple of days I was not myself. I was tired, weak and lost my appetite. Mom did give me one of my favorite things on Sunday...some hamburger. I was nauseated so Mom gave me medicine, but it didn't really help. I stopped eating on Monday and stopped drinking on Tuesday night. I was ready to go and the Moms knew in the hearts it was time to let me go.

I said goodbye this morning to my furry family and even got kissed from Maedia and Percy and a nudge from Skylar. My Mom took me out for one more walk in the yard. I walked a little on the sidewalk and then went and laid in the grass. I sniffed and meowed and thank you to Mom for one last visit to my earthly yard.

We went to the doctor, Mom tried to be hopeful that maybe there was something we could do. Maybe it was just a virus or a toothache, but Mom suspected it was more serious. The vet said she could buy me a few more days, but it wouldn't really be quality time.

The doctor and staff were very kind. I passed away peacefully in Mom's arms at 10:25 this morning. Mrs Murphy was there to greet me when I got to the other side.

I thank you all for your friendship and love over the years. I have so many great memories of Catster parties and good times. I will miss you, but know that I will be watching over you all from the Rainbow Bridge.

To my sweet girl, Ashlynne, I'm sorry this old furte couldn't stick around any longer. You will always have a very special place in my heart.

Love and purrs,


Locked Out!

Yep, I was locked out, but don't worry I wasn't out in the cold, nasty weather! No, I was locked out of the gift shop. This morning, right after breakfast, I got on the computer to send my lovely Valentine, Ashlynne a gift. I could have done it last night, and probably should have, but some of us from the male species are known to procrastinate. But anyway, I wanted to send a gift early this morning and I couldn't get in the gift shop. Locked out! Darn could they do that on such an important day.

But, happy ending to the story....I was able to get in and do some shopping tonight and send a beautiful girl some beautiful flowers.

Happy Valentine's Day Ashlynne, sending my love, hugs and purrs and don't holiday, I 'll start my shopping earlier!


Wow! It was nice to see my pals again

Thank you all so much for the birthday wishes! It was so great to see my pals again, especially the lovely Ashlynne. For those of you who don't know, she was my Valentine and I hope still is. I've always had such a crush on her....I love her fur coat and her sweet temperment and, oh goshm I could go on and on.....
Anyway, we see her on facebook, but we haven't been here in a while, so it was so kind of you all to remember me on my birthday. I had a great day! I had a Fancy Feast Appetizer and I didn't have to share (they are expensive, so we don't get them all the time. Mom pulled my ears (we all get the ear pulling treatment on our birthdays), and we had a big treat party that night and some extra playtime. I may be getting up in age, but I still love to tackle the wand toys. I also got lots of extra hugs and kisses too....I like those alot better than the ear pulling, although Mom doesn't do it hard and I actually like when she plays with my ears.

Many thanks for all the treats on my page and the presents and good wishes
Thank you to...
