We are not doing this in any pawticular order, but we are starting with Angel Toki.
|Here's looking at you...Do you like my long whiskers? |
|"All eyes on the camera, pawlease!"
|"I see something very interesting!"|
|"One of my first pictures."|
|"Windowsills make great places to sit|
"Watching the goings on!"|
|"I see a bird!"|
|"We see something interesting..." (With Sisfur Angel Suki)|
|"You have what?"|
|Here I am with my best doggy furend and brofur, MrJackFreckles. |
|It was cozy nesting in with him, MOL!|
|I am spying ovfur my cat-kingdom.|
|A furry young me with my sisfur Angel Suki|
|I was quite the lazy fatso...and sadly it was my undoing as well...|
|Helping Oma do her knitting when she was visiting from Canada. I had to make sure the needle was the correct size, MOL!|
|Suki did not like me when I got to my den...she hissed and used that smacky paw to whap me.|
|Oh, boy did she whap me...|
|But...I did not let her 'get rid of me' MOL!|
|Drinking from this leaky faucet was great, until my peeps fixed it. Shucks.|
|I guarded the laundry a lot:)|
We received picture 'cards' from our furends to commemorate spawsial events:
Some things from Toki's pages:
May 26th 1997
Being with his people and furblings, getting outside to eat grass.Being vacuumed!!
Being left alone, other kittys on HIS spot.
Paper balls, catnip toys
Favorite Nap Spot:
Fresh warm laundry in the basket, sunny places, cat nests, in a nest with the dog
Iams,grass,catnip,anything remotely edible
Long conversations about why he should never be left alone...Getting through doorways, opening the basement door. Once he got in there and we didn't know where he was until he started complaining about nobody being there with him...
I saw an add for Siamese kitties, and went to check it out...with a senior kitty and a 6 month kitten at home I thought it would be an ideal time for a new addition. OMC! He was a great kitty and a real character!
He had to learn about our Diva cat, Suki, who at 6 months thought SHE was the only cat that was worth anything...Being as he was very outgoing, he endured plenty of mean cat paw whaps and hisses. But eventually HE became the king! He bonded quickly with the old cat, (Groucho),and eventually a truce was called between the 2 kittens. This kitty learned a lot of tricks almost like a dog.
He even got to go to school for a kindergarten 'show and tell' Iit was fun for him,and he explored all the little cubbies where the children stored their things. I was not thinking too clearly that day...MOL...and furgot my camera...so no pics:(
He was a greeter of strangers, and amused all who cared to watch. He also was another go through all doors kitty, but we already were watchful for escapers...from previous kitty experiences. He loved to eat, all the time, anything was food...catnip, too. He became rather portly despite our efforts at diet and exercise... When we got our dog, they became best friends, they even shared the nest areas. Being brushed was a favorite time for him and believe me, he was a big shedder! It was a good thing with all his shedding that he just loved to get vacuumed! He would go to a special spot and wait for me to get there. He knew it was the last thing I would do before I put the vacuum cleaner away! The funniest thing was if I had to turn it off to do something else before I got to him, he would miaow at me very balefully as if to ask 'why have you forgotten me'. Then he would run back to the 'spot' when I resumed the vacuuming... He got to be 22 lbs.Way too fat for a cat! At age 7, he was diagnosed with severe diabetes, his BS was about 750!! Due to our lifestyle at that time, with much traveling to ailing family members and putting 2 boys through private school we could hardly afford the vet bills, let alone the thought of teaching anyone who would catsit him how to give insulin and all that goes with that we were very stressed about what to do. The vet advised us that even if he could be stabilized, he might still be very fragile with health and complications... I asked him what he would do, and he hesitated... but said...'Probably help him to the bridge, because his new life would not be much fun...' So after agonizing for a day, we decided that it would be kinder for him to have him PTS. He came out to me and said 'Miaow' and collapsed on the floor. He just did not have the wherewithal to get over to me, so I had to go to him...It was so sad...but I know he is much happier in the bridge park where he can eat all day and play with his furbling who was already there, and make new furends...
I am the King! I even rule the dog!
