About Me

Active within 10 Days

Hi! My name is Handy Andy & Angel #149735

I am Domestic Shorthair from Minneapolis, MN

Nicknames: Handy Andy! Andy is a short haired white with grey tabby spots. Angel a tabby and white Maine Coon mix. She was a feral mom last summer and is now a loved family member and Andy's BFS.

Age: 7 years old

Gender: M

Coat: short haired

Education: CHANGING THIS PROFILE AGAIN FOR ANDY AND HIS BEST FRIEND ANGEL, WHO IS STILL VERY MUCH OF THIS EARTH. ANDY WAS A RESCUE OF MANY YEARS AGO AND A FOSTER FOR THE FIRST YEAR OF HIS LIFE. AFTER A FAILED ADOPTION AND THEN DISCOVERING THAT HE HAD A HEART MURMUR, MOM DECIDED IT WAS BEST FOR HIM TO STAY WITH US. HIS BEST FRIEND FROM THE STREETS MILO WAS ADOPTED OUT AND SINCE THEN HE HAS SEEN MANY CAT FRIENDS COME AND GO. ANDY IS VERY SOCIAL WITH OTHER CATS.

ENTER ANGEL, STILL OF THIS EARTH, LAST SUMMER. A YOUNG MOM-CAT LIVING ON THE STREETS, WITH KITTENS UNDER A NEIGHBORHOOD HOUSE. SHE AND THE KITS WERE RESCUED AND BROUGHT TO MOM. THE KITTENS ALL FOUND ADOPTIVE HOMES, BUT WHILE ANGEL SOCIALIZED WITH ALL OF US KITTIES, SHE DID NOT TRUST MOM AND THUS WAS NOT READILY ADOPTABLE. SLOWLY SHE AND MOM WARMED TO EACH OTHER. AFTER THE KITTENS WERE GONE, MOM SAW HOW SHE TURNED HER MOTHERLY WAYS TO NURTURE ALL OF US OLDER KITTIES, ESPECIALLY ANDY. MOM DECIDED IT WAS TIME HE KEPT A SPECIAL FRIEND.

First COTD was given to Andy and Angelo/Milo, 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: BOTH ARE SURVIVORS! AFTER BEING RESCUED FROM ROUGH SITUATIONS, BOTH HAVE LEARNED TO LOVE AND PLAY AND JUST RELAX IN A SAFE PLACE. and PEOPLE FOOD--- WHATEVER THEY CAN GET MOM TO GIVE THEM!

Where I hang out: FRONT PORCH, WHEN THE SUN IS SHINING IN!

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.

ANGEL, ALTHOUGH SCARED, OBVIOUSLY HAD A HOME AT SOME TIME IN HER LIFE.

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.

ANDY AND ANGEL PLAY TOGETHER, SLEEP TOGETHER AND GROOM ONE ANOTHER.

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

How We Met

WOW! ANOTHER COTD TODAY 4/21/15? HUGS TO ALL DEAR CC FURRENDS!

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!

it's really nice of you to stop by
janet's for the most part given up blogging, but still does to some on each page seeing some are regular daily or semi daily bloggers to us we can't always to all of them! not many of them now a days left here as more have quit and gone elsewhere, but we're staying till it's down for the count. she got more planting done outside the fenced in garden as well as some of the yard and found stinging nettles and got rid of that asap! not good having that stuff around. we hit 90 yesterday and going to be lower 90s today and near the mid 90s tomorrow as well as 97 on satuday, when janet was going to take mommy with nat to the cemetary to leave plants, but now if it's going to be that hot and air quality not good we're gonna maybe do it tomorrow night when it's cooled down a bit more and before janet goes to bed as well seeing she's working straight through as it's her work week thurs-tues anyways. she's also sleeping in later too till 3 in the mornings those days. angels,ab,haley,april

Its always the expensive stuff that they love to eat! Gma gets the FF gravy lovers,and adds a tiny bit of water to it to get more water in us. We split a can once a day,then she adds water to our dry. I'm getting the impression she want us to have more water. Hmmmmm. Whateve! SHE has to clean out the litter box!

our weather too has ups and downs like a roller
coaster so it continues and they've downed temps for this coming week with lower 60s this weekend upper 50s today and tuesday, then mid 50s for the rest of next week, and upper 40s with rain on monday and mid 60s on wednesday when janet hopes to walk may be the middle west st. block she doesn't know might stick closer to home till it warms up a bit more and we have started to gain light back in the mornings again. had a scare at the dr's office mommy ended up being brought to er which turns out to be another asthma attack a bad one and they let her home at 9 and got here around 9:30 just when janet was falling asleep! angels,ab,haley

Happy Monday
Said no one ever. *Groan* why is rolling out of a warm bed so very difficult!! Actually,after not eating for several days,Gma was happy to have my 3 am wake up and feed me call. The antibiotics I was on-they caused me GI upset. Glad that whole thing is over.

happy heart's day!
just wanted to wish it to one and all there as we don't seem to see you as often as we wished, but know your mom is very busy with things going on there and here with the first dangerous sib erian cold outbreak in some 10 years we're being told not to go outside unless we have to and of course those who work can't es-cape that like janet as it's the middle of her work week. but warming up from highs around 12 where it is now today and tomor-row with -20/-15 to start out tomorrow morning to 30 on monday with a warm front/snow to a sinker stinker to rain/50 on tuesday how's that for a big change from the freezer to the frying pan and then getting to the 30s for thurs/fri and back up on sat to the 40s again. angels,ab,haley

got fantastic news
here warming to 46 today as well as sun-wed of next week and cooling to the lower 40s for the rest of this week. so all in all not bad and a really nice break from all the arctic cold we have been getting the past month! we know that there's a lot more of the wintery stuff between next week and when spring comes in on palm sunday next month. janet even stayed and worked ot yesterday like she did on friday, only making up 11/2 hours of some of what was cut from her hours this week like all the other part timers! reason being nobody was scheduled for the melon bar and she cut up all the fruit for things her bosses were going to have to get done before the end of their shift as well as a weekly meeting. take that mr. crowner store manager, ha, ha! angels,ab,haley

after all the waiting
cc's finally doing the spinning act on you after we've raced through the rest here this morning and aren't to far from finish ing up. nice outside compared with most of the morning highs here this week up to 36 and just sprinkles not the freezing crap predicted, so looks like here the weather people screwed them-selves yet again, nothing new most stink anyways and janet only usually trusts the weather channel. rain tonight/tomorrow am and ending with highs into the mid 50s then only 31 on monday and near 30 on tues/wed as well with a sinker tues/wed time frame too! angels,ab,haley

we do so lov
the spring flowers which means spring isn't to far away so we can only hope at this point for an early spring, but that also will mean lots of rabbits around this year as last there weren't to many or chippies either. got rain moving in starting as ice on saturday something janet isn't looking forwards to, but if it's to slippery she just will stay home again like she did last tuesday as it was to slippery and lots stayed home from work like she did. we'll take the rain over the frozen crap slowly melting on the ground from last tuesday anytime! :) bad thing it's janet's 58th birthday on sunday and of course she's working time and a half! angels,ab,haley
