How We Met

Onyx was a stray wandering around the state hospital where my mom worked, she was very friendly with all the patients and none of the other employees had the resources to take her home, so my mom brought her home to me

•Traumatic injuries from military combat including traffic accidents
•Circulation problems from atherosclerosis or diabetes, resulting in amputation

HI ONYX & FAMILY! WELCOME TO THE CAT CHANNEL
It's so nice to meet you! We hope you will look around the CC, there is so much to see and do. Click on some of the links on the home page for all sorts of fun and information!
There's a University where you can learn all about our wonderful feline friends, and at the same time, earn badges that will post on your page.

The CC community is comprised of thousands of pages. There is:

*Catpaign and Mews Room page #46883 where kitties post their news and the Cat of the Day campaigns are announced
*Birthday Central #73341 where you can register your birthday
*Mouse Hockey League (see Dean page #36497 for details)
*Rainbow Bridge Scoop newspaper (Angel Duckie, Editor,  #51627) for kitties who have crossed over.
*Community Directory on page #112364

Also, it's good to congratulate the Cat of the Day winner every day. You will make a lot of new friends like that.
Do you know how to travel around the CC by page number? Simply erase your 6-digit page number from the address string at the end of the URL in your browser and type in the page number you want to visit. Press enter.

*Special Tuesday SHOUT-OUT for AMELIA #168516*
This 15 yr old beauty has just gotten some bad news & could use some extra loving support from the CC community. On Saturday, November 5th, her mom posted the latest results of Mealie’s #168516 biopsy. This sweet kitty has been diagnosed with an Oral Squamous Cell Tumor, which is the same thing that her son, Angel Sir Beanie, was diagnosed with. The tumor is located in a place that is inoperable & Radiation Therapy isn’t an option either due to the location of the tumor. This cancer is very aggressive & progresses rapidly so her family is devastated by the news. While she was at the vet it was also discovered that this beautiful girl had been shot in the left side & the pellet is still in her. This happened before she came to her furever home so this was a complete shock to her family since she’d had no symptoms or problems resulting from the earlier incident. We’d like for this wonderful family to know that the CC community is thinking about them during this difficult time so we’re asking everyone to please stop by to see Amelia #168516 today, Tuesday November 8th. Please paw her a vote & wrap your warm fuzzy paws of furiendship around her & her entire family so they’ll know they’re not alone during this difficult time. *Please be advised that the family may not be able to answer your blogs since the care & comfort of Amelia #168516 is first & foremost in their lives @ this time.

This is Zaboo, NICE crew, Sienna & sibs thanking you sweet kitties for your compassion & support of this beautiful girl!
