Handy Andy #149735 WOW COTD! THANK YOU ALL!

About Me

Active within 1 Day

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!

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.

Just a hint
Kazoo's are lethal around here. The orange ones are blessed with tooting capabilities that can clear a room. Kazoo's only encourage that activity. Yes,I've been bombed by a Steve silent an deadly this morning. My eyes are still watering....

Pawty....
My place...be here. Today is my uncles BD! Yes,he IS grown,31 years old, and out of the house,but Gma still makes a cake for him,and eats it all herself. She mumbled something about deserving it after 26 hours of labor. Whatever that means. I just don't get humans sometimes.

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

even with the temps
above freezing at 35 here this morning it was just starting to snow out there and hoping that any change over comes and quickly about it too as janet says she can't afford to lose anymore days due to rotten weather and or starting to use what little sick time they do get which is 24 hours for the entire year! sandy,ab,haley,angels

good morning!
still a bit windy, but all in all it could've been worse out there this morning as it was 0 last time janet saw when she took pepper out for her first time of the day and to let her car warm up while she was out there. she'll do it again for a bit longer before she leaves for work this morning as well she says so it'll be almost warmed up and not cold till she's almost to work! got more chances 3 of them for light snow through thurs. of next week and praying no sinker either! back to normal temps at that time 20s and 30s. sandy,ab,haley,angels

looks like
pretty good weather chance of snow flurries tonight into tomor-row morning, then cloudy/dry monday, showers tuesday, then boomers 50s and a heavy wind swept rain wednesday into that night so janet's decided the big meal she's got to prepare is going to interfer with the supper and the rain for the next ser-vice just will be to much and janet will be very tired by that time so they'll stay home and put the gifts minus the pets under neath the tree due to haley being out all night and likely will get into them so won't be put out till early the next morning. guess what master is coming home for a few hours christmas mor-ning with janet's younger sister ruth and oldest daughter meagan and then return back there in time for lunch. sandy,ab,haley,angels

The mutt is next. She is due for a tooth cleaning,and her Bordatella. I say the vet can keep her. In fact,I might hang a "free to good home" sign on her. Think it will work?? Nah,I'm not that lucky,and I THINK Gma may miss her.
