Making her spirit kitty presence known
Being dumped at the humane society on 5-12-09 with "Unwanted by owner" on her cage card, 13+ years old with a pelvic fracture which went unnoticed by humane society ppl.
Favorite Nap Spot:
On a soft towel with a heating pad on low under one part of the towel.
She managed to somehow mesmerize me so I simply HAD to adopt her from the shelter!!!
I went to the humane society to rescue a cat whose thoughtless owner dumped there (the owner was an acquaintance of mine and I had been at her house just days before she moved and took her 3 big dogs with her, she said nothing at all about not taking one or both of her cats.) My old Siamese, Mew, had passed on March 2 after a long struggle with age-related kidney failure and after that, I had been looking for a rescue Siamese. That's what led me to the shelter where, to my shock, I found my acquaintance's cat. I looked around at the other cats in the shelter and Hallie just suddenly and forcefully caught my eye and I felt so strongly she wouldn't have any chance to be adopted unless I took her. She was hiding in the back of her cage so frightened (and in pain though I didn't know that until after I got her home and could observe her) that she would urinate when someone tried to handle her. She would growl and hiss and I also knew that most people wouldn't know how to deal with those things either. So I adopted both cats, Victor & Hallie and took them home to join my other 11 cats.
If Hallie could talk, her story would probably be terrible but at least it's having a happy ending as she rests and heals in my bathroom with her bed of soft towels, with a heating pad on low under one end for her to enjoy the warmth when she feels like it. She has a very shallow litter pan so she can easily get into it without having to go more than a few steps from her bed, since she is in a lot of pain when she walks. Her food and water are right by her bed, and there are toys available for whenever she decides she feels like playing again. She is very talkative, I suspect that she has Siamese blood in her background because I've found that although many cats with Siamese in their background don't show it in their appearance, they show it in their talkativeness. Hallie has learned to enjoy being massaged around the face and neck and to enjoy grooming as long as nothing goes too close to her painful back end. I'm glad I adopted her.
Updates...The 4th photo of Hallie was taken 6-8-09. You can see how crooked her rear end is because of the broken pelvis. You can also see she looks skinny from above but at the same time had a lot of loose skin and fat hanging down her sides. I don't understand the reason for that strange condition except to say that as with everything else, this too is improving over time.
The 5th photo of Hallie, also shot from above was just taken 10-11-09. You can see from this one and the next two photos, how much her physical condition has improved. You can also see how she has become confident enough to relax and do such things as roll over in the presence of humans.
My favorite photo of Hallie, taken on 9-3-09, is of Hallie contentedly perched on the bathroom "throne." The toilet is her favorite perch although she has learned to get down when I need to dethrone her temporarily!
Hallie's low activity level had nothing to do with sleepiness and everything to do with the fact that she was old, had a fractured pelvis when I got her, had evidence of older injuries, had arthritis, and had difficulty getting around.
Please consider adopting an older cat!

made a beautiful photo for Hallie's January 30, 2013 DOTD but for some unknown reason, that one wouldn't show after I uploaded it. Thank you Patches!
