Arrival Story: We found Patch wandering in my mother's neighborhood. He was very skinny and hand shy. We could tell that something or someone had hit him due to the red marks on his back legs. He was so scared, he wouldn't come to us at first. The poor thing was howling as if he was in mourning. We took him in and in a few days his personality changed. We found he was sweet tempered and very mellow. We have two senior citizen cats and he hardly looked at them. Patch still hasn't been with us very long, but I already am very glad we have him. He loves to snuggle and have his tummy rubbed.
Patch's true personality has really come out in the last few months. He is not the timid, scared creature we found back in March. He barks at other dogs, cars and just recently - the radio. However, he is very friendly and not at all aggressive. He only likes to tell the world that he is #1. He absolutely loves to play with his tennis ball. He could play all day, I think. He loves to go for rides (except to the vet) and go for walks. We could not have picked a better dog if we had bought him or adopted him from a shelter. The Lord knew we were meant for each other and I thank Him every day that Patch is now a part of our family.
I have a new kitty sister! I am so excited! She is really interesting, too, not like my previous kitty siblings. For one thing, she is very young - younger than me - and so she's not sleeping or being sick all the time. She just fascinates me. I know I invade her space too much - she has let me know very well when I've crossed the line - but I just can't seem to help myself. I want to sniff her all over and giver her kisses. I just can't seem to be still when I see her. She's SO pretty, too.
She and Molly get along pretty good - Molly likes her, but is not obsessed with her like I am. There, I admit it. I am obsessed!
Maybe after she's been around a while, I will calm down, but right now she is more fascinating than all my squeaky toys and tennis balls combined.
I just want to say thank you to Dogster and to all my pup pals who have wished me a happy birth/gotcha day. Mom will be giving me my present this evening - I know it will be something great, it always is!
Mom had to send the last member of our feline family to the Rainbow Bridge a few weeks ago. She was pretty upset. Lynx had a mass in her stomach, which the vet said was probably cancer.
So now, it's just me and Molly.
Mom has had to send all 3 of my Kitty sisters to the Rainbow Bridge in the last 6 months. She is so upset about all of it, she took down their Catster profiles because it depressed her too much to know they are no longer with us and there will be no more stories to tell about them.
They will always be in our hearts, though. Always loved and never forgotten.
Since grandma is moving in with us, mom is not going to have any more kitties for a while, which makes her sad because she loves them so much. She says when the Lord decides the time is right for her to have another kitty, He will get them together - just like He did with us.
