About Me

Active within 1138 Days

Hi! My name is Dee Dee (In Loving Memory, 1/30/97-8/03/09

I am Domestic Shorthair from Petersburg, VA

Nicknames: Cavegirl, because she has very dark fur like a caveman's brow ridge, and it makes her look mean but she's a sweet angel.

Age: 19 years old

Gender: F

Coat: short haired

Education: I'm another one of the Death Row Gang, those of us who made it out of the same shelter with an 82% kill rate for cats. I had a very hard time surviving three teeth getting pulled when I was 10, and now I'm small and frail but I'm a survivor.

My favorite tricks and treats are: She seems to always throw up her hairballs into her rolling-ball-ar- ound-the-cardbo- ard toy. Her favorite toy is a plastic rattle ball with a feather sticking out of it. and No treats, just where's my Fancy Feast Roasted Chicken? You BETTER have my pink can in your pocket or I'll squall and make you feel really bad at how you're treating an old lady like me. Didn't your mother teach you anything?

Where I hang out: On a big, puffy blanket in a laundry basket on the cabinet beside the dryer, or on a rug on the radiator.

My favorite grubs: Pro Plan Senior 11+, and Fancy Feast Roasted Chicken

My pet peeves: Other cats, getting her claws trimmed, and anything besides Fancy Feast Roasted Chicken in her evening bowl.

What I love about my owners: They let me be as eccentric as I want to be! I want my bed in a basket on the cabinet beside the dryer, I want my food and water beside my basket, I want my litter box on the dryer, I want my rug on the radiator and I want to deposit my hairballs on my ball-n-scratche- r toy. 'Nuff said.

My cat hobbies: Sleep, nap or close my eyes and peck corn; get on your warm lap; get brushed and massaged. I also like to sneak into the linen closet when mama puts laundry away.

Pet motto: I yam what I yam and that's all that I yam. Good-night.

How We Met

(Dee Dee passed away in her sleep, simply from old age and no ailments; we always thought she was much older than originally thought. She is very much loved and missed.) Our undercover adopter was sent to rescue the sister of a brother we had already rescued, and we said she should get another cat since a person can adopt two. The intention was to save something fairly adoptable, but the rescuer took Dee Dee, named after Cage DD, because she looked so old and pitiful she knew no one would adopt her! She obviously had lived a hard life, had been picked up as a stray, and was very thin, dirty, with bad teeth. The shelter said she was 5 but our vet said more like 10. After she was feeling good, we took her to Petsmart for adoption days and she would always be our "petting zoo" for the kids because she loves getting petted, but we felt it was just too much excitement for her to go. She would never eat or drink while she was there, and she would be nauseated that night and the next morning. So we decided Dee Dee can live here forever with Stuart & Friends @ Cottonbelly Farm and have an easy life; she deserves it.

Hi from Rosebud, Basil and Barney Lacy and Yoyo
We always love to hear a good rescue story. We were all rescued off the streets, Barney in a farm area actually. Mom belongs to a group and takes cats to adoptions every weekend. Barney is up for adoption, but he says he will play it cool, unless he thinks he can get a better deal than he already has. Fat chance!

Come visit me, Our Precious Angels #75646 COTD 12/3/15 WOW!, HEFTY #130639-----VFP Goalie/COTD WOW!, Honey #267035 COTD 1/25/14 THANK YOU ALL!, Handy Andy & Angel #149735, Our Angel Meezers #74302 ACOTD 2/22/15 Thank You!, Angel Zeus #246330 COTD 1/14/13!, Molly Jean #79742 COTD 4/22/15 OH MY!

•:*'''*:•COTD VOTE WED4/16 NAPOLEON 68109•:*'''*:•
***WHO'S THE KITTY IN THE SINK?! DON'T WORRY! BE HAPPY! IT'S JUST OUR GOOD PAL NAPPY! VOTE NAPOLEON #68109 or Nappy as his furiends call him! He loves drinking water from the tap & hanging out in sinks. He had an "accidental" bath on Monday when he jumped into a bathtub with 3 inches of water! Nappy's original family surrendered him at age 10 months. His furever Mom & Dad rescued him from the shelter when he was 11 months. He recently celebrated his 2nd birthday & today is his Dad's birthday. Nappy & his Dad are very close. Nappy loves to watch his Dad lay the freshly caught fish on the counter for Nappy to sniff, waiting patiently for a morsel! He loves to jump on his Dad's lap. His Dad carries Nappy around the house! Funny thing, when Nappy's parents married, his cat loving Mom would wait almost 21 years to get a cat because his Dad always thought he didn't like cats! Of course, that was before he knew Napoleon! Now, they are the purrfect family, watching squirrels, ducks & birds together, not to mention their pal Chip the chipmunk!. They are proud Canadians and Nappy sang the Canadian National Anthem for the Mouse Hockey League. Visit Napoleon today, check out his fabulous pictures & PLEASE VOTE NAPOLEON #68109!!!!... Love, Fidel CC#14733 & family! P.S. PLEASE keep our ailing furiends in prayer ~ Percival #30635 of the Port Orchard Pride is healthy but on meds for heart murmur; Angel Duckie's #51627 Dad, Mike, underwent surgery & colon biopsy. Thanks for your continued support of Fidel's COTM catpaign too! April is half way done & Fidel is shaking his maracas for votes! ...Remember, over on DC, #5172 SCAR & CHICO, they're the two! Give them a bone & a DOTM vote too!

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

howdy Dee Dee
Thanks so much for welcoming me to C.C. I also have two cat brothers that annoy the meow out of me but I love them anyhow,yes finally another cat who can understand my shy personality,I think the reason why I am so shy is that my ma-ma cat was a feral wild girl that was rescued from the cold the winter before last when me and my litter were wee little she saved us from the cold hard winter elements and after we were strong we got fixed and shots and well my other siblings were adopted out fast but since I was such a shy guy it was not as easy for me,but luckily as fate would have it,my now human mommy was looking for a cat and there I was just waiting for her she said that she was looking for a kitty just like ME and she was so very happy because I was just the perfect cat to complete my now family and now even though I am still scared when new people come around,I am now happy and comfortable FINALLY!!!
great story huh!!!
p.s. my mommy is going to buy a digital camera real soon,and my brother prince thinks you are a really purrty kitty cat,meow for now.please drop me a line anytime.

Come visit me, Austin, Maximus, Tanis & prince.

hey dee dee
well we have something in common,the death row shelter life,before I was given a second chance I was a two time shelter cat I was adopted out to a family for a few days then they were worried that their little baby would get scratched by me because I play a little too rough and sometimes accidentily nibble my prey(person playing with me).anyhow to make a long story short,it was the LAST day for me according to the paper on my cage,so I put on the charm and when a nice lady came looking for a family pet I charmed her with my dazzling golden eyes and we looked into each others eyes and instantly fell in LOVE...and that is my story come on by and give a quick meow sometime.

Come visit me, Austin, Maximus, Tanis & prince.
