About Me

Active within 3 Days

Hi! My name is Handy Andy #149735 WOW COTD! THANK YOU ALL!

I am Domestic Shorthair from Minneapolis, MN

Nicknames: Handy Andy! Andy is a short haired white with grey tabby spots.

Age: 5 years old

Gender: M

Coat: short haired

Education: Andy and Milo came in as rescues from the streets, from the same area. Andy, grey tabby spots on white, was rescued at about 6 mos of age. Milo is a long haired black cat, declawed, who came in originally with Andy, was adopted out to someone with a small dog, but returned, because they were not getting along. He is happy to be home! They have made an easy transition to living with our family, formed a close friendship bond with each other, and enjoy playing MHL Hockey. Obviously they learned to skate on icy city streets. As of, 5/21/10 Andy and Milo were adopted, but it didn't work out for them, so they returned to our foster home. Andy is now with us permanently due to the discovery of a heart murmer. Milo finally found a forever home! Hope to see him again on a new page of his own and the name has chgd to Myles!

First COTD was given to Andy and Angelo, our foster kitties back then on 2/11/2010.

WOW! TODAY 4/15/14 ANDY WAKES UP AND RUBS HIS EYES WITH HIS PAW--- COTD! MY OWN FIRST COTD! THANK YOU SO MUCH DEAR CC FURRENDS! HE BOUNCES OUT OF BED TO HUG EVERYONE, WHO HAS STOPPED BY FOR THE PAWTY!

THANKS MIKE & FAMILY VOTE #1600!

My favorite tricks and treats are: They are survivors-- Andy was only about 6 mos old when he first arrived. He is full grown now, but still on the small side. Milo is a young adult, perhaps about 3 yrs. They love to run, roll and play and are always an inspiration to watch. and They like anything, as long as its food or water!

Where I hang out: Wherever his new friend Honey is!

My favorite grubs: Friskies' canned. He is on a high quality dry kibble, but he loves his Friskies!

My pet peeves: People, who consider cats and kittens throwaways. Andy is very social and obviously had a family when he was a small kitten, but now he was found roaming the streets and no one to claim him. He was very thin, had scratches on his nose, but was otherwise healthy. Milo, the LH black cat, was neutered and declawed. No signs of anyone looking for either of them.

What I love about my owners: She saved us from the life of being strays. The rescue group she fosters for made sure we got neutered, health checks, and treated for worms and other parasites.

My cat hobbies: Eat and sleep-- mom offered a toy to Andy when he first arrived and he was afraid of it. Gradually he learned to play again.

Pet motto: One more stray out of harm's way!

How We Met

Andy came in as a foster and went to many adoptions for over a year. Somehow the right person never came along. His friend Milo found a forever home, but they did not want two cats, so Andy stayed on. Then, when his annual vet exam came up, it was discovered that he had a heart murmur. Probably had it from birth, but it was in a place that was hard to detect. That was the clincher for mom. No more stress for Andy. He would stay with us forever!

WOW! AND THANK YOU ALL DEAR FURRENDS FOR THIS COTD TODAY 4/15/14. THANK YOU BOO KITTY AND MOM FOR THE BEAUTIFUL FRAME. WE WILL BE COMING AROUND TO THANK EVERYONE INDIVIDUALLY THIS THURSDAY AND FRIDAY, BUT WORDS CANNOT EXPRESS ALL OUR LOVE FOR YOU AND HOW MUCH ANDY, MOM AND ALL APPRECIATE YOUR FRIENDSHIP!

Funny story
Gma's niece adopted a greyhound,and sent pictures out. Gma glanced at the photo very quickly and did a double take-she thought it was a deer! I know,I can't take her anywhere,she is SO embarrassing.

Great idea! We can ride a greyhound. Well,you could,I could watch. I THINK that skinny little dog would know when a 20 pound lardo like me was on its back. I bet I weigh more than the dog! Have to rethink this ride...

very cold here
today mid teens and wind chills down into the -20s, but kids don't need to fear winter break. got a big storm this weekend 1-3" heavy wet snow to a sinker and pea soup fog and 40 on sunday then a bigger snowstorm on wed 8-12" heavy wet snow which will have janet and nat out several times trying to stay ahead of it due to master's snow blower not wanting to run in more than 3" of heavy wet snow or slop out there and janet is limited to how much she can do as the pull in her left side isn't healed yet! sandy,ab,haley,angels

I've learned
There is an art to bubble gum. No,I haven't mastered it yet,I'm a cat! Most humans haven't mastered it either,but I'm pretty sure popping bubbles doesn't mix well with fur in close proximity. That being said,happy bubblegum day! Stand back,it should be considered a lethal weapon.

just when you get caught up
with all the outside work, you only fall behind once again. 1-3" coming in this morning so janet will crawl to and from work this morning and then do most of the clean up work herself giving nat a chance to do his online college homework which he's fallen behind on and usually has it finished already! we hit 40 here yesterday and only going to hit 20 today. a possible big one this weekend a foot or more! sandy,ab,haley,angels

Thats what Gma is dreading
The last time the pooch had her teeth cleaned,it was around 800 dollars-ouch. NOT a good time to get it done with property taxes due,house insurance due,and income taxes due! The vet runs a special of 10% off if its done in Feb,so here we are!

So....
Gma read this article,and has the brilliant idea to add coconut oil to my,and the doggies food. Just a small amount to "have a healthy coat,and boost metabolism and promote weight loss". Really??? It was on the FB page at the veterinary clinic we go to. Those people need to stop giving her ideas! I'll admit,so far,so good.

So,
The Gma thinks she is a tricky one,and buys an auto feeder so we can have food in case she runs late getting home (it happens you know). Well,guess who gets ALL the food it so nicely spits out? yep,me. Its like a slot machine without the money! I look at it longingly,and its like magic-food comes to ME. Gotta love technology.

Hi Handy Andy & fursibs
I rarely visit you handsome boy so thought it would be nice to hear your sweet purrs for a change.

Today we’re melting a little bit more with our warmer temp & some sunshine! All of our outside kitties are enjoying everything about the nicer weather…except for the puddles of water…MOL! Bartholomew was here again to eat & get attention yesterday. Joseph whacked him on the tail but got no response so at least we know he isn’t ready to fight at the slightest paw twitch.
Did you see the pawsome story at Free Kibble today? In case you didn’t I decided to meow about it because the kitty in it is a true heroine & has earned her earth angel wings!

A baby boy in Russia is lucky to be alive thanks to the mothering nature of a stray cat.
According to The Daily Mail, the infant, estimated to be between 2-3 months old, was abandoned in the entryway of an apartment building in Obninsk, as temperatures dropped below zero. The baby was placed in a box, and doctors believed that he was in the cold temperatures for a few hours.
Though the baby showed no other signs of abuse or neglect, the cold temperatures could easily have caused serious problems for the infant. But Marsha, a resident stray cat, who neighbors say, frequents the building, climbed into the box with the boy and kept him warm for hours.
Nadezhda Makhovikova, who lives in the apartment building, told reporters at REN TV that she heard a cat meowing and it sounded like the cat was in distress. When she went to investigate, she found the boy and Marsha in the box and immediately called police.
An ambulance came to pick up the boy and took him to the hospital. Residents of the apartment building say that the cat ran out after the ambulance and appeared to be concerned with where they were taking the baby.
The boy was checked over by medical staff at the hospital, and he was declared fit and healthy, despite the scary ordeal. Police are looking for the boy’s parents and, for now, the baby is being cared for in the hospital.
While it’s tragic that the boy’s parents abandoned him and left him to die, Marsha’s instincts helped to save the baby’s life.

Hooray for the heroic kitty!! Well got to run for now so I can see what the youngsters are up to since it got so quiet. Will meow at you again very soon.

Purrs of love,
Patches & NICE Crew
