aka Princess, Squealy
A pure bred Manx rumpie (no tail at all) born
February 23, 1993. Small and all white. She weighed
nearly 10 pounds at her maximum. The first cat in
history to have dining room table privileges. No one
knows why. Somewhat aloof. Cranky! Developed several
health problems in her later years including Diabetes.
She became ill on July 2, 2010, and was taken an
emergency vet hospital for treatment. Diagnosed
with a kidney infection, she returned home on July 5
on antibiotics and seemed to be doing better. She was
weak but still spunky. But, she never really
recovered, stopped eating and died suddenly on the
morning of July 8, 2010, while being pilled. A cat
of unique personality, she scratched everything in
the house and peed on the carpet, but she was dearly
loved. Click the picture for a few more.
aka "The Big Guy"
A mystery breed about 3 years old when he was
adopted from the Humane Society on November 19,
1997. He was very big (long and tall) and weighed
about 19 pounds. He could throw his weight around,
but he was a sweetie. Very affectionate. Put down on
July 28, 2011, after his long-time health problems
took a sharp turn for the worst. Several subsystems
did not work well and calificaton of his lower spine
damaged the nerves and made it difficult for him to
walk. Known as the miracle cat, he rose from the dead
several times and, with excellent treatment from his
vet, lived for many years beyond expectations. He was
a "Wise Old Man" loved by ladies everywhere,
several of whom traveled from far away lands to meet
him. He will be greatly missed and fondly remembered.
