Arrival Story: After losing our sweet little girl, Kashmere, I wanted to give another kitty like her a loving home so I stopped by the same Shelter where adopted her, 8 years ago. This was also a Birthday wish that I had asked for and it came true. As soon as I met Truffles, I knew that he was the one as he stole my heart immediately. I feel that when the right pet comes along, you know it and so do they. I filled out the Adoption application on a Friday (before Truffles even arrived) and on Monday morning, they called me to let me know that I was ready to Adopt. I didn't fill out any other applications although I was planning on it but there was no hurry. I did search on Petfinder here and there but nothing came about from those searches. Several days after my application approval, the lady from the Shelter called to inform me that there was a litter of 3 babies surrendered that morning. After work, Rob and I immediately took a ride over and there was little truffles and I knew that he was meant for us. He was the only Tabby in the litter so I believe that Kashmere sent him to us as her gift to me as well. This has been such a wonderful Birthday for me and what were the chances that the right baby would be coming home on my special day. This is something that Kashmere would have wanted and I know that she's looking down from Heaven with a happy smile. Truffles was chosen for adoption on May 13th, officially adopted on May 14th and will be arriving to his forever home tonight, May 15th. Only 3 days made a lifetime of happiness for our family. May my little girl, Kashmere and my little boy, Picasso rest peacefully at the Bridge and they'll always be close in my thoughts and in my heart.
Bio: I am a very happy kitten who enjoy picked up and given lots of attention. if I don't get the attention I want, I'll begin to cry knowing that my meowmy or daddy will pick me up. As soon as I met my pawrents at the Shelter, I knew then and there that I belonged with them... I was told that my families beloved Kashmere sent me to them and my family believes that as well as. Thanks fur adopting me and giving me such a wonderful life to look forward to. *7/5/09, 9/11/09~DAILY DIARY
Meowmy can't believe that her baby Truffles *that's me* is now 3 years old as of today. I was adopted three years ago In Loving Memory Of Kashmere after she made her sudden and unexpected journey to the Bridge on April 21st, 2009. Actually, I was adopted in May. By the way, Kashmere's Bridge annifursary is also my handsome brother, angel Cocoa's Birthday. As soon as meowmy and daddy saw me at the shelter (same place that Kashmere was adopted), it was love at first sight and that I was the one. Wow, what a lucky kitty I am to have been chosen to live in a home with so much love... Couldn't ask fur better!
My family has four March Birthday's to celebrate, YES four! Let's see... there's mine which is today, Snowmitts is the 17th, Frosty's is the 25th and Jaspurr's is the 27th. Looks like mom is going to be busy with a lot of celebrations *giggles*
My plans are to spend the day with meowmy and of course, checking out the birdies through the screen. She would take me strolling but I'm somewhat skittish and not to comfortable with the stroller or unfamiliar places but that's ok because I'm quite content in my purrry own home! I will keep up with my diary throughout the day and thanks again to all of you fur always being such pawsome furiends *blows kisses*
Sending a warm thanks fur your p-mails and to Catster for the yummy cake as well as to the following kitties fur their thoughtful gifties: My Family (chocolate cupcake), PorkChop & Fam(party hat)and Mugsy & Fam (clover).
Early this morning while everyone was asleep, Cocoa made his journey into Heaven... He gave no indication that he was ready fur the Bridge the night before and it came as a big shock to all of us... Cocoa was diagnosed not too long ago with Hyperthyroidism as well as having Cardiomyopathy for 8-1/2 years. He was almost 16-1/2 years old. Cocoa and meowmy had a purrry special bond and wow, what a meowmy's boy he was. They held that special bond up until the day he made his journey.
When meowmy came down stairs this morning at 8:15 am, she didn't see Cocoa and he didn't respond when she called him. She then looked over towards the dining room and saw him laying on his side, facing the patio glass doors. She had a bad feeling because he always answers her calls but this time, he didn't. As she approached him, he did not move so she knew something was terribly wrong. She picked him up and then collapsed while holding him in her arms, The night before, her dear furiend, Marie spent the night and everything was fine. Mom was crocheting while Cocoa was sitting on the sofa with her and auntie Rea Rea and they decided to go to bed at 12:30 am. Daddy was already sleeping since he had to get up early fur work. When auntie Marie used the bathroom at 2:15 am, she saw Cocoa in the flyer and he was fine. Daddy had to get up at 3:00 am fur work and there was nothing unusual with any of the boys. Meowmy and auntie Rea Rea took Cocoa to the vet at 8:30 and Doc Wray came up from surgery to check on our situation which was purrry nice. He said that Cocoa showed no signs of struggling to breathe and that he passed away peacefully at approximately 5:30-6:00 am. He also said that it was his heart that took him. He was such a wonderful kitty and such a good boy. Heaven gained a beautiful angel today but I know that we are all feeling so much pain as well as all of his wonderful kitty furiends. Cocoa will be privately cremated and returned back home the following Wednesday.
We will Miss Cocoa purry much but he will live furever in our hearts until we all meet again. Fly free purrecious Cocoa boy! You were a wonderful brother and loved so much!
Today was a purry sad day as we learned that our dear furiend and auntie, Hazel Lucy made her journey to the Bridge at 12:30 pm as a result from renal failure. She was such a beautiful kitty who started the Purr Threads here on Catster...Hazel Lucy touched all of our hearts in such a special way and she will always hold a place in our hearts. Our meowmy is also saddened and shocked by this sudden news as she was not expecting it. Please keep Hazel Lucy and her meowmy, Julie in your purrrs & purrayers during this sad and difficult time. It is never easy to say good bye but I do believe that one day, we will meet with our families again. Love you auntie Hazel Lucy and always know that you will live on furever in our memories *wipes eyes* Auntie Hazel Lucy has touched our hearts and will leave a lasting impression with everyone that was blessed to know her. I know that angel's Picasso & Kashmere will show her around Heaven and I bet that the Bridge is having a big pawty fur her arrival. Beautiful wings fur a beautiful angel.
