Arrival Story:
We had just lost our cat of 12+ yrs and called the humane society and they had nothing but feral cats...then we called the vets office and said we wanted a cat..they hmmmm hahd until I said we were looking for 2-3 cats. They had found Phantom with Patches (see her page as well) and didn't want to separate them. They were right. They loved each other and were inseparable.

About me:
I am a momma's boy...I love my mom and my dad. I love to be picked up and held and will immediately turn on my purr for that. I don't talk much but I do say "MOM". I'm a very sweet, loving cat and will cuddle and butt heads with mom or dad all day.

My favorite toy is paper. Sometimes mom and dad will wad up a paper ball for me to bat around, other times, just leave the newspaper stretched out for me to run and slide on...especially in the middle of the night.

I'm not into birds and squirrels much. Patches was the hunter and liked to watch that. Mom and dad will hold me so I can see them but I would just as soon have a nice sun puddle for a good nap!

Phantom's thoughts on life and such!

I'm doing OK now

Mom wanted to wait to write this entry until she knew things were going to be OK. Two weeks ago mom took me to the vet because I had turned down my treats the night before and I NEVER turn down treats. And I wasn't acting like I felt good.

Later that day the vet called and told mom that I had kidney disease. Mom was shocked. See, we lost Patches to kideny disease just two years ago. The vet wanted to keep me at the hospital over the weekend and give me IV fluids. She wanted to treat this aggressively as she felt it was very early kidney disease and a lot could be done to stablize me.

I came home on Monday, 2/24 to Spice hissing at me. I slept a lot for a few days. They said I was comfortable and resting well, but who ever rests well at the vet?

So I was eating only a little bit at a time so I was getting fed about 6 times a day. Mom was gettig up a couple of times in the middle of the night to make sure I ate.

I went back this past Monday for a follow up. The vet says I'm stable and to continue on with the meds and the kidney diet and she will see me in 30 days. Mom hopes the meds will help get my numbers down too.

I am playing like I was before, running with Spice, playing with toys, sleeping with mom and acting "normal" for me, so mom feels good we are on the right path. She would still like me to gain more weight but as long as I'm not losing, she figures that is still a good sign too.

Thanks to all my friends for the PoP and purrs and prayers. Both mom and I appreciate our friends here and that is just another reason why we love Catster so much.......such support!

Hugs and purrs


Thank you for the GOTCHA DAY wishes

I want to thank all my friends for all the Gotcha Day Wishes yesterday and all the gifts and rosies. I really appreciate all my friends sharing what is a very special day to me. Fifteen years ago, at the meager age of 5 weeks old, I came to my forever home. Mom had been trying to get us for a few days and our foster mom kept "forgetting" to bring us to work so mom could pick us up (she worked at a vet) and finally, on New Year's Eve, she brought us in and out came a fidgety calico kitten (Patches) and a little gray ball of fur (me). We finished the year with a new mom and dad and the next day....New Year's Day, our first full day in our new home, a new year, a whole new start and it has been totally PAWSOME. Mom and dad love us and spoil us rotten. They took care of Patches when she was sick and after we lost her, brought Spice in because they knew I liked companionship.

Of all the days to celebrate, the gotcha days are the best because that is the day we chose, and our parents chose, to start a new life together! So THANK YOU to all my friends for sharing in that joy.

Happy New Year and I hope that 2014 is good to all of us.
