About Me

Active within 2337 Days

Hi! My name is Shadow~In Loving Memory July 21, 2008

I am Domestic Shorthair from Morton, IL

Nicknames: Also answers to Spook, Shadowcat & Sweetie.

Age: 21 years old

Gender: F

Coat: short haired

Education: As a member of a house with 3 kids, Shadow has disturbed homework time for all 3, but mostly for Elliott, from preschool through 2nd year college, as that is where Jessi is at. So, Shadow can say that she has done sat on enough homework for a combined 14 years of schooling and she still has to get Elliott through 4 years of high school!

My favorite tricks and treats are: I can run up and down ladders with ease. I also enjoy piggyback rides on mom's back. and Whisker lickins in the purple bag and also the Friskies moist treats.

Where I hang out: Either in Molly's bunk or in the sunshine of Mom & Dad's room.

My favorite grubs: Right now my favorite foods are Science Diet Mature Indoor and Felidae canned cat food for Seniors.

My pet peeves: Family members leaving for college. Mom bringing me home a new kitten who wants to be MY SHADOW!

What I love about my owners: I love that I can sleep anywhere I want on the bed and never have to move. My family moves around me even if it is quite uncomfortable for them. I also get to sleep in the room with Mom & Dad at night without the kitten waking me up.

My cat hobbies: Take dad's shoes from him when he gets home from work. Then I can rub & roll all over them for as long as I want. I also make dad scratch my back and follow me around the room doing that. It's heaven!

Pet motto: Find the sunshine and don't be afraid to ask someone to open the shade so you can soak up the sun!

How We Met

Long ago (ha!) dad told the family that there was a cute litter of kittens down at the lumberyard and when we saw Shadow, we just knew that we needed to have her with us at home. She is the most beautifully colored calico around and such a patient, kind temperment with little ones.

It's been a little over a year now with a kitten!
Snuggles has been with us 15 months now and I am glad that mom and dad got her and kept her. Snuggs has improved my energy. She has also taught me that even though I am almost 13 now, I can still run with the young ones. I play A LOT more now with my family and they are amazed at all that I want to do. With the exercise I have lost about 1 pound, so I do look skinnier but it's all good cause I am running and jumping door frames once again.

Hey Shadow
Our Missy is a Norwegian Forest Cat, HUGE. We just got Zippi and she does the same thing. Hisses at her for nothing and Zippi is so afraid of the big kitty. Now after a couple weeks, Missy sniffs her and walks away, no hisses. It will take time for you both to settle. Our Taz was the same way and after 3 months she and Missy get along ok. Taz and Zippi play and chase all day. Older cats take longer. Purrs and votes for both of you

Come visit me, Ole Gray, Zippi, Taz & Missy.

Hello Pretty Girl! That sounds so much like something Sebastian would do! He can be such a clown sometimes!Today is such a pretty day here! Mom has the big glass door open and even sprinkled catnip on the floor! Sebastian tried to keep me from my fair share, so mom put him in the other room for a while. Sebastian tries to keep me from all the good stuff. He gets soooo jealous sometimes. I started putting up a major fight. She was afraid WWIII would break out in her living room! LOL! Sending you a vote before I leave today. Purrs, Cleopatra

Hi Shadow! That is a funny story. Sebatsian loves to run around the house with toys in his mouth. He especially likes the liong furry tail on a stick... It is about 3 ft long. Did Snuggles shide it once she made her escape? Sending you a vote this evening. Purrs Clepatra

Hi Shadow! I sometimes like to play a game that mom called "catch Me If You Can "... Sebastian and I chase each other all over the house, Crash through the mini blinds, then I usually run and slink under the bed. Sebastian cant run and slink at the same time, he keeps running and usually hits the edge of the bed. Mom and I laugh at him. Isnt it amazing how all calicos are so different? Sent you another vote.

Glad to know that the weather is good enough to have the windows open for you. It's pretty nice out down here tonight as well. Mom has the windows open while she is on the computer so we are all out in the front room lying in the bay window fussing over territory and who gets to be by the open window. Just wanted to pop in and say hey!!! Mom's a bit under the weather today really trying to catch a cold poor dear. Take care

Hiya Shadow
We just stopped by to say Hello and let you know that we voted for you. Saw your name on another page and had to take a look (we used to have a kitty named Shadow as well) plus you said Central Illinois and our roommate is from Central Illinois herself. Hope you can stop by and say Hi one day if you aren't trying to hybernate up there in the cold!!!

Hi Sweetie!
I'm SO glad you're feeling better and that your caring mother has found food that you like. She must love you very much. I'm sure you give her lots of love in return. I will keep my paws crossed for a complete recovery for you. So you're a night eater, huh? I do most of mine during the day. Keep getting better! Your pal, Ginger Spicegirl and a kiss to Snuggles, too.

Shadow cat here & checking in!
Well, I am feeling much better today. Mom tells me that I get my last dose of medicine tonight. *MEOWY*
I am so glad. I ate my wet cat food for mom in the middle of the night last night, so she is a happy camper. Today I made sure that Snuggles knew her place around me. While I have not been up to snuff lately, Snuggles has been terrorizing the house and playing bat the cat with me. Mom keeps stopping it but today I took the matter into my own hands and stopped that kitten myself. NOW she remembers who is the boss cat around here. The Shadow Cat is on her way back. Now if mom would just stop worrying about me and my eating, then maybe I could eat and use the litter all alone, without her following me around. It's getting a little crowded in here! Later kitties!!!

Dear Shadow,
I'm so sorry you're sick. My mom gives three of us cats vitamins (not me, because I'm perfectly healthy. She just brushes my teeth, and I got Lysine and Oculotrophic concentrate when I first came to her because I had an eye infection). My best friend, Misty, gets a ton of vitamins because she has CRF, diabetes, and has had two strokes. The Maine Coons get stuff for their hearts because they have the gene for HCM, but they're extremely healthy after the vitamins! Hope you feel much better very soon. Cinder

Hi Shadow & Snuggles!
How are you 2 pretty girls doing? Did it stop snowing? Is it still cold up there? I've been busy. My Dad had to go the hospital this week and when he got home I had to play pet therapist. I think he needs me to take care of him, so we've been taking lots of naps together. I'll meow again later. Ginger Spicegirl

Hi Shadow and Snuggles
So nice of you to come visit me and thank for the votes. Yes, I am the same Gus who has entered the fluffiest tail contest. Even though I'm bigger than my buddy Orville, Mom still calls me her baby Gus. I love to curl up in the middle of her desk when she's working. I guess you could say we are a little spoiled, but from your pictures, I can see you get to snooze in the best places too. Enjoy your day? Gus, Orville & Mom.

Hi Shadow!
You are very sweet to tolerate a new little fur baby at your age. I think that is admirable! Remember to be extra kind to her when she comes home from her surgery. She'll proabably be a little more quiet than usual--for a short time (so don't let your guard down). I am napping right now in a big spot of sunshine on the carpet in my Mom's office. I'm stretched out on my back so the sun can warm all parts of me! Let us know how Snuggles makes out! You are a cool calico! Ginger Spicegirl

Okay, Mom needs to figure this out now.
I answer to "hi sweetie" or "there's my girl" or "you're mommys' good girl" cause she is talking to either ME or Snuggles (not both of us at once) but we both end up looking at her and wanting her attention. Snuggles and I are getting along better or at least I am better able to ignore the pouncing at me stuff that Snuggles insists on doing after her naps. Oh it is interesting at our house but always fun.

That Kitten!
Okay, I am trying to get along with the kitten, Snuggles, but NOW she is following me everywhere and jumping at me when my back is turned. Well...this leads to me hissing and growling and chasing her under furniture. Then I leave and HERE she comes again. What am I doing wrong? Mom wants to know if it is okay for me to just do this? Should she be trying to get Snuggles to leave me alone? Help!
