About Me

Active within 1622 Days

Hi! My name is Opossum (R.I.P.) 2011

I am Domestic Shorthair from Hillsboro, OH

Nicknames: My daddy calls me his Purdy.

Age: 13 years old

Gender: F

Coat: short haired

Education: I AM the guard cat! I will growl when strangers are outside!

My favorite tricks and treats are: Don't do any tricks really. Being the guard cat takes up my time! and I don't really have a favorite treat. I'm quite picky with people food too. Don't eat much of it. I do like tuna. Most foods I might take one bite of and that's it.

Where I hang out: I like the closet. Nothing bothers me there. And I like the bed. I'm in and out of bed all night long with mom and dad cause I have to keep an eye on things.

My favorite grubs: I'm quite picky. I like my meow mix dry and wet.

My pet peeves: I hate to feel confined by somone. Only dad can pick me up and only if I want to be held. If someone I don't know tries to pick me up, BEWARE!

What I love about my owners: I love my mommy and daddy but I really got attached to my daddy! I would greet him coming home from work by climbing up his pant leg to his waist so he would see me when I had just learned to walk. I would sleep in his slippers and snuggle him on the couch. I don't have any claws any more, (probably wouldn't want me climbing up him any more anyways,)OUCH! But as soon as I hear him come home I'm at the door talking to him! And I will chase him around hollering and demanding attention until he gives me the love and affection I feel I've missed while he's been gone!

My cat hobbies: My favorite toy is my "bird". Basically feathers on the end of a rubber band. But to me, it's my prey and I will protect "my kill"! I like to play with my milk ring and talk about it while doing so.When I'm playing with it, you can hear me throughout the house. I like to squishy dad or mom, who's ever got a blanket. And I like to "mother" dad and clean his head for him. I also have a thing for eyelashes. If you blink at me I'll get em'! I am constantly looking out for my humans and our home. If there's a funny sound, I have to check it out. Somethings amist!

Pet motto: I AM the guard CAT. Any canines wanna challenge that?

Hi Opposum
Thank you for coming by last March 12. I enjoyed reading how you came to your Mom and Dad. As one former feral kitten to another, I definitely would love being friends with you. Say hi to me or to Herman everytime you have the chance to visit Cat Channel. I love your name. Actually, my nickname here for the St. Patrick's Day was Apple O'Possum. Then, Mom just dropped the opossum. If you looked up my profile and read my nicknames, one of them is Possie. Mom is fascinated with opposums and sometimes she thinks my face is kind of looked like a baby possum. You sound like you are loved in your house, and it's nice to know that there are cats who are daddy's girl. I hope to see you again. Leaving you a friendship vote. -Apple-

•:*'''*:•WED 3/12 COTD VOTE JESSIE #56226•:*'''*:•
...On Wednesday, MARCH 12 Please stop by with a shamrock COTD CATPAIGN VOTE for a true survivor, sweet 17 year old Miss JESSIE CC #56226 of Wisconsin! Jessie was born the runt of a litter of 8 kittens that were forced to fight over scraps from a can of cat food. She was malnourished when she was rescued causing health issues early in life. She responded well to her new loving furever home, fighting against the odds to survive and thrive. She would be the only cat from her litter to survive, and to this day she loves to give kitty kisses!!!...At 3 years of age (before being spayed), Jessie gave birth to Teddy, a black cat and Susie, a tuxedo cat. They happily live together with a cool cat named Nipper. Jessie only eats her special kibble (Vet Diet for Kidney function) with at home injections of SubQ IV fluids as needed. Jessie's kidney function results have not been good and she requires occasional fluids to help sustain her. She calmly lets her Mom give her home treatment, purring loudly when done with her shot. She has been eating better and keeping more of her food down. On these "good days" she is alert, happy and moves around a lot. Jessie does one thing without fail! Every morning, she gets up about 15 minutes before the alarm is set to go off and rubs her head against the Alarm Clock, making such noise that her Mom gets up. Jessie's Mom thinks Jessie doesn't like the sound of the noisy alarm and so wakes her up first. However, once Mom is up, Jessie returns to lay down for a rest while her Mom feeds Jessie's kids and Nipper. It is not that Jessie dislikes the sound of the alarm. She just wants her Mom up to feed the other kitties so Jessie can catch some extra peaceful ZZZZ's....shhhh, don't tell!....After you give Jessie #56226 her wonderful Wednesday COTD catpaign vote, please remember to give Gin Gin, the purring engine, #12433 her daily March Madness COTM vote!!! She is doing a beautiful job of keeping all cats posted on prayer requests...On behalf of the hardworking Catpaign & Mews Room team #46883, we leave you a grateful green Leprechaun hat vote!...Now, if we can just catch that little Leprechaun...get back here!...

Come visit me, Tonantzin the fluffy, FIDEL ~ Happy 2013! & CHE!.

Vote for Opossum
You are a very lucky kitty to have been discovered by a forever family who obviously adores you. While life might have been rocky to begin with, you now have a cushy life. I've never heard of an eyelash fetish before - must be fun. Thank you for the the note on Turner's page. We miss him a bunch.

Come visit me, Poochi, Angel Turner, FitzWilly and Gabriel & Angel Tucker.
