Being the sweetest cat on the planet


Arrival Story:
Livia is our Blue Abyssinian girl, our second-oldest kitty, and the sweetest-natured cat I've ever met. All she wants is love 24/7, and hasn't got a mean bone in her body. In fact, this might NOT be so good, as sometimes our other guys use her as the local punching bag! Poor thing. She's "low girl on the totem pole" as far as the feline pecking order is concerned in our house, but her gentle nature and sweet personality make her a favorite with every human she meets. She's a bit shy at first if she's not met you; but after awhile, she'll come up to you. After all, Abys are 100% social creatures - it's in their nature! Like most Abys, she's got a very, very soft miaow which she doesn't use too often - mostly when she's hungry (which is all the time.) She does have a strange fetish, however. Two of them actually. She LOVES stink - I mean, this cat will stick HER ENTIRE HEAD into my husband's work shoes (and only his - what's up with that, I wonder?) after he's just taken them off. (Does she breathe in, I always wonder?) Contrastingly, she LOVES to lick someone who's got on either perfume, cologne or body lotion. LOVES it. I'm sure most of you have gotten perfume in your mouth accidentally - know how awful it tastes? We can't for the life of us figure out why Livia likes the taste. Maybe it's different-tasting to cats???

Hi, I'm Livia and I'm the supermodel of the Carter household because I eat & eat & eat & NEVER gain any weight! (Mom's SOOOO jealous!) Come see me on - and PLEASE LEAVE TREATS! I LOVE treats!!! (And if you're wearing body lotion, I LOVE you! Let me lick you! And play in your hair! Abys LOVE playing in people's hair!) JANUARY 8, 2008: GROMIT, my sisfur Morticia's boyfriendcat Hudson's brofur, just asked me to be his girlfriend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SQUEEE! (Can you tell I said, "Yes"?)

Feed me! Won't you feed me?

The Trials of a Bottom-Rung Kitty

Today is my First Bridge Anniversary

It's been one year today since I went to The Bridge. MomKatt's been talking about me a lot lately with DadKatt, feeling the time of year encroaching upon her. Mostly she is remembering how I had to supervise most of what she was doing in the kitchen on the counter or near the sink. And how fierce I was with cat-toy stalking. Or how, when it was just Sharif & me way back in the day, I'd cuddle up to him and try to generate more body heat. He didn't always appreciate my efforts. MomKatt has a picture on her work's PC monitor of us on their bed, with my front paws wrapped around Sharif's head and another of him licking my tummy. He was such a good brofur. We are both missed very much.

But Miss Rachel, I understand, has taken over my kitchen supervision duties and it sounds like she's a pro. So I am there in spirit.

But I know MomKatt would still rather have me - and Feisal, and all our family's angel kitties - there in purr-son. She misses having Abys in the house.

I miss you, too, MomKatt ...

Your loving

I've arrived at The Bridge. It's quite nice here, though I'm a bit confused right now. But I see Feisal, and Sharif, and Torrie, and Kukla ... it's like old home week! And I'm cleaned up, my butt doesn't hurt anymore, my eyes are clear & bright and I've got energy to burn. I think I'll like it here ...

But Mom&DadKatt are hurting ... but she says she did the right thing, and she did. She told me she'd be with me 'til the very end and she was. Her voice was the last thing I heard, reading this line to me from "Hamlet" ...

"Now cracks a noble heart - Good night, sweet prince[ss] / and flights of angels sing thee to thy rest."

It's her favorite Shakespeare play.

I will be making my journey to The Bridge this afternoon. Mom&DadKatt know it's the best thing for me. I'm not going to get any better and I'm really pretty miserable as it is. I don't feel good at all, I increasingly cannot control my poops (which are all liquid and have been for some time). My vet, Dr. L, has said there is nothing more that HE can do outside some type of invasive procedure & Mom&DadKatt don't want to put me through anything like that at this stage.

Thank you all for your purrs & thoughts & messages. This isn't how Mom&DadKatt wanted to start a New Year but I know they're doing what's best for me and I love them for it.

I will be my serene, lady-like self 'til the very end, just you wait & watch me. And I'll be my loving self 'til I draw my last breath.

Love to you all,
