How We Met

Last year i saw 2 kittens with bad eyes and infections from flees. There names were Snicker and Doodle. Snicker, Had one bad eye. Doodle, had a respitory problem. We took care of them and took them to the vet. Doodle got well again, and got a good home.
Unfortunatly, sniccker's eye got worse and worse until we had to put him asleep:(

Part-1 of 5 Meowdy lil Snicker!!!!!!!
This ended up being ALOT longer than I anticipated when I had mamma start typing it for me, so we’ve broken it down into several parts, k? Guess I just had a ton of things to say since I haven’t blogged to anyone in awhile. MOL Our old roomie Chumley(who is an Angel now) was the most popular kitty of our little group & he had the most friends on here that he blogged to!! We all called him a “Blog-hog”! MOL MOL
So make sure your mamma or daddy is comfy before they start reading this to ya, cuz we’re gonna be here for awhile! MOL
{{{Don’t worry-all posts by any of us aren’t as long as this...this just sorta got out of hand after awhile!! MOL}}}


Why sure-we can fly together in Kitty Heaven!! I know one of your roomies who you lived with...Boo!! I believe we’ve chattered to each other about an old roomie of mine who passed on several years ago....her name was Thomasina & she was also an all-black kitty...she was “mamma’s 1st born” so to speak! MOL There is a pic of her in Sammy’s scrapbook since he was with her when she passed away...he was actually laying on the couch with her & had his “arm” around her & we’re figuring it was because he didn’t want her to be alone or feel scared! But you can go to Sammy’s page (#192401) & look at his scrapbook if ya wanna see a pic of her! She was beautiful!!!
She was 18 when she passed away & was lucky enough to have mamma all to herself for many years before mamma met daddy, & daddy started bringing home “new additions” here & there, saving them from an uncertain fate, which I’ll get to in a moment.

Also, one of my roomies, Booboo had written to Boo & they were comparing how annoying little brothers can be! MOL
Fuzz, who is Booboo's little bro, is constantly annoying her in one way or another!
She is 2 years older than Fuzz & weighs at least 3 times as much, plus she's so much bigger than he is...he'll be a year old on Aug. 5th. Heck, if she just sat on him, he would disappear! MOL MOL MOL

When mamma & daddy got married (18 years ago) he found Tuxie on the way to work one very cold November morning...he was actually all curled up in the grass outside his work, covered with snow & FROST!!! He wasn’t expected to make it since he had hypothermia, among a ton of other health issues(plus a little brain damage from being out in the cold for who knows how long), but because of the love & dedication they had for him...he’s still going strong at the ripe old age of 17(he’ll actually be 17 in a few months)! And old Sammy, who’ll be 18 in Sept...he was found by daddy too!

Come visit me, Roxxie-aka "Fuzzybuttz", Angel Tuxie 6/9-1 yr an Angel, Ikey & Mudgie...Sisters, Angel Poofy, Chumley~5/19~2 yrs of being an Angel!!, Angel Sammy 2/10/13 RIP Angel, Booboo & baby bro Fuzz & Kiekie.

Mamma had rescued our doggie furiend, Onyxx, who unfortunately passed away on Dec. 13th 2010. She was 16 ½ & was a Rotti/Sheperd mix & weighed around 85-90 pounds when she was young & well! She lived here in the house with all of us kitties too! Mamma said that someone had abused her at some point because if ya just raised your hand up toward your head or face, like if you had to scratch your nose or your head...Onyxx would put her head down, tuck her tail between her legs & cower in fear...like she was afraid of getting hit! How sad is that?!?!?!
Mamma said that if she ever found out who abused her...she would do the same thing to them...or worse! Mamma gets soooooooo mad when she hears of anyone abusing or hurting any animal in any way & she says that if she ever saw anyone doing anything like that-she would want to hurt them even worse than they were hurting that animal!!! And believe me...she would have a hard time controlling or holding herself back from doing it too since she says that there is absolutely NO reason that anyone should ever hurt an animal!
Now mamma isn’t the “violent” type in any way, shape or form...but when it comes to protecting animals...well, that’s a whole different story!!

Onyxx ended up getting bad arthritis, hip dysplasia, cataracts & was hard of hearing towards the end, but she was one heck of an awesome furiend to all of us kitties! She & Kiekie(the only calico kitty of the bunch) were especially close & poor Kiekie actually grieved for her for a little over a week after she passed away! She wouldn’t eat anything & would just lay around in one certain spot when she wasn’t looking for her up & down the hallway & she would be “talking” as if she was calling to her to come out of wherever she was hiding! They had this ritual every morning where when Onyxx would wake up, she would stand there in one place while Kiekie stood up on her back feet(she couldn’t reach her otherwise) and she would nudge & rub her face on Onyxx’s face...she would let her do this for as long as she wanted too! That was their little special “good morning” to each other I guess.
The only time Onyxx would get a little upset with us, is when she got older & her cataracts got so bad that she couldn’t see very clearly & one of us would come near her from behind & she couldn’t see us until we were basically right there in front of her face so she would let out a little “growl”, but never snapped or anything to us. Mamma says it’s because we probably startled her since she didn’t see us coming & it probably scared her for an instant, but once she recognized us, she would be her old friendly self with us & not growl anymore.

I was found by mamma during a family picnic they were having by a local lake & I was just a tiny, very skinny, sickly little thing & had an upper respiratory infection, snotty nose, ear infections & ear mites, worms, massive flea infestation, eye infections and was covered in some kind of grease...they didn’t even know I was white until they gave me my 1st bath when they brought me home! They even had to bath me a couple of times since whatever kind of grease was on me, just didn’t wanna come off & they had heard that Dawn dishwashing liquid was good for grease, so they did that too, then gave me a bath with regular kitty-shampoo.

Mamma was melting ice cubes from the coolers so I could have fresh water to drink instead of that yucky lake water that I had been drinking...plus she was “sneaking” food from the coolers to feed me since I was soooooo hungry! How cool is that, eh???

But on another note...I crossed the Rainbow Bridge on March 16, 2010 & have been up here in Kitty Heaven for a little over a year now. I was only 12 1/2 at the time! I ended up getting a very aggressive form of cancer that invaded my whole body! My pawrents were sooooo shocked, since I hid it so well until the last 2 weeks I was here on earth! The only way they knew anything was going on, was that I started to hide under the bed...which I never did before & I was losing body weight very quickly!!! Had I only stayed out & not hid, perhaps they could’ve done something to help me battle that cancer...but I didn’t---I hid it very well & when I could no longer hide it...I went into hiding! That’s when they knew something was very wrong, since I had NEVER done anything like that before! It only took 2 weeks from when I started to hide, that I had lost over ½ my body-weight...& I was a big kitty-not fat-just a big beautiful kitty, as you can see by the pix @ the bottom of my page!

When I decided to come out of hiding, my daddy saw me & I almost fell over from being so weak, and he knew he HAD to grab me when he had the chance to take me to the Vet! Once the vet took a look at me & took an x-ray—it was discovered that I had cancer in every organ & tissue in my body! Oh...how I wish now that I hadn’t hid it from them...they may have been able to get me the help I so needed! But by the time he took me...it was way too late to do anything, and the vet suggested he “put me out of my misery”! Now our vet is a “kitty specialist” and loves them dearly & would NOT suggest that unless there was absolutely no alternative!!!
That was so very hard for daddy to decide, but he knew it was best for me so I wouldn’t suffer anymore! That was the 1st time I ever saw him cry! Mamma was at work when this all was happening & he didn’t want to tell her until she came home so she wouldn’t be upset the whole day at work!
But now...I’m free of all that pain & able to enjoy Kitty Heaven & all it has to offer!

One of our roomies, Chumley has recently come to Kitty Heaven & he was only 6 1/2...if you wanna read about what a traumatic experience THAT was for our pawrents-here’s his page# 192486 so you can read it! She put it under the “How We Met...” section of the page, right under his Avatar pic that she made of him, so she didn’t have to relive that day over & over!
My poor mamma was in shock for over a week after that happened, but she’s able to talk about it now without crying or beating herself up over things that she could not change!

Well my new furiend...write to me anytime you want & sure...we can fly together around Kitty Heaven...in fact-I can take you under my wing(no pun intended-MOL) & show you some of the things we get to do here that you may not know about yet!! Like fishing...we like to fish early in the morning before breakfast, just when the sun’s coming up...it looks so beautiful reflecting on the water that it looks like a bunch of tiny diamonds shimmering on the water! We don’t keep any of the fish tho...we throw them back as we never want to harm any of them. My pawrents call this “CPR” fishing, as they fish the same way...C-Catch, P-Photograph, & R-Release! Pretty clever, eh? They love to fish too but don’t keep anything they catch either...they just like the sport of it all & don’t want to harm any of them either! It’s nice to know there are some hoomans out there that care about all kinds of animals, ya know?

Oh, and I have a message from my mamma, she says, “If you would like her to make you a pic with angel wings on like I have or any other kind, just let her know & maybe put the pic you would like her to use on the bottom of your page or perhaps in your scrapbook & she’d be more than happy to do that for ya!!”
Now it’s no wonder why I love these hoomans so much, eh? I tell ya...I couldn’t have found 2 more loving & caring people to live with than I have found with them! There are 8 kitties in the house now & 8 outside that they take care of! WOW—that’s 16 kitties in all!
They have 2 huge houses that daddy built for them out there & they’re even heated in the winter!! Plus mamma bought them a heated water bowl so they don’t have to be without water in the winter either!! There are these huge soft couch cushions in their houses & they keep them on the porch so they’re protected from the wind & snow too! The heat only comes on when the temperature gets below freezing and it warms the cushions up really nicely!! Oh, and they recently were able to get all 8 of them “fixed” this past spring when mamma found out about a feral spay/neuter program that was held so they could get them done at a reasonable cost, plus they all got shots & vaccinations too!! With summer being here now, mamma & daddy have been able to spend alot of time outside getting them tamer & in fact, now they’re able to hold some of them & 2 of the older ones will even sit on their laps!

They have named them all & there are 2 sets of litters, all to the same mamma-kitty. They also are all siblings of our indoor kitty Booboo & Fuzz. Booboo came over here by herself with her mamma, she had been living next door with the neighbor (not the mean ones below-these ones take care of their animals). Their mamma(my pawrents named her Bitzy since she’s just a ‘little bit’ of a thing) actually stayed over here with Booboo when she was still nursing, then for about 1 ½ years or so after that. Then she had 2 more litters over here before returning back to her “real” home. The 1st litter in April was just 3 girls-Jynx, Jypsy & Jayjay...then the fall litter in August was 4 girls & 2 boys-girls are Bootzie, Freckle, Mitzie & Tiny Tot & the boys are Fuzz & Lil Man.
Fuzz is the one that is in the house now...he kept getting in every time mamma would go outside to feed them, so she figured that if he wants to be in that badly, they’ll just keep him in! So he’s been in the house now for about 7 or 8 months! He’s a little spoiled brat too! He really pesters his big sister Booboo...it’s like he knows somehow that they’re related even tho they’ve both been “fixed” so they don’t have those certain pheromones that they emit. But it’s funny to watch them...that’s for sure!!

Well little one, I better sign off now or your pawrents won’t let me write to you again...thinking that I’m always this “long-winded”! MOL

You can write to me anytime you want & I promise my next blog to you won’t be THIS long!!!

Purrs, nudges & a gentle wing flutter,
Angel Poofy
