PIPPIN
Hi Folks!! I'm Pippin. Meom says I'm a bit like a Hobbit, I am just a bit shy and reserved. I like to think of myself as being coy! I like to play with kids. They play fetch with me and I'm really good at that except I take the toys to my room. Then I come back for more! I like to play chase games with my brother J.J. I'm a good boy but I need some time to adjust to a new home. I don't kiss on the first date. I do like to counter surf just a bit. I'm an explorer you know. I'm more reserved than J.J. But I'll let you pick me up for a hug. The more toys you have in the house the better. I'm the athletic type, have to keep in shape. Meom won't let me play with these little birdies! I can't understand why. So com' on and ask about me and J.J. We're better entertainment than any reality TV show!
Purrs and chirps, Pippin

Notes from Home
4/7/18 Pippin: Pippin was more adventurous of the two brothers, but he still stayed under the bed for 2 weeks. We honestly believe they talk to each other: 'I'm not going down, and you're not either!' Pippin used to come up on our bed to be petted and would purr and wash up....until I tried to cut his nails.... he carries a grudge. But he did come up for a few minutes yesterday so maybe I am wearing it down. I can pick Pippin up, and a hefty boy he is, but only for a few ear scratches and a kiss, then he's done! He loves the fire, and when it goes off, he sits in front of it and looks at me, 'hey, it's out, get it going!' He and Jasper sometimes sleep together, but often they end up in a fight. They have been called the Bowery Boys, and for good reason. When we see Pippin jump in with Jasper and the washing begins....soon the ears go back, the paws go up and they are off! Pippin seems very content to be left alone, but we're hoping in time he will want more human companionship. He defers to Jasper. if Jasper's on our bed, he won't come near. But he also seems happy and has a very good home. Sent two pictures. Cynthia

JASPER
Hi Folks!!
I'm Jasper but my foster meom calls me J.J. My brother Pippin and I are looking for a new home where we can be the only two kitties in the house. We like to race and chase just like young healthy boys do. Pippin likes to ambush me from his hiding spots.
We're a coy with people but when we settle in you can pet us and we'll chat with you. I like to be hand-fed chrunchy dry food from my foster mom. She has spoiled me to be sure. Sometimes I even grace her with some lap sitting!
So ask about Pip and me so that we can get acquainted! You might just love our antics. It's great entertainment! We're not the kiss on the first date types but we'll adjust at our own pace.
Chirp, chirp, J.J.

4/7/18 Jasper Jones, Man about Town: It has been quite a journey! These poor guys had no idea what happened to them, where was their Mama! First of all, thank you to Carol their foster mother. She knew them best, always with good advice and a great sense of humor! Jasper spent about 2 weeks under the bed, Then gradually we would see his beautiful face at the top of the stairs, then in time half way down the stairs. The stairs were his refuge as he was sure he could make it to the top and under the bed before anyone touched him! Christmas was a turning point and he began spending most of his time downstairs, sleeping wherever he felt like. He and Pippin have baskets to sleep in and a cat tree. We have a gas fireplace and that is where they have spent the winter in their baskets. Jasper has now taken to our bed during the day and has this funny little meow-growl. He loves to be petted and rubbed, BUT we cannot pick him up yet. We believe he is very happy, and he is very well cared for. I uploaded a couple of pictures. Cynthia

CINNAMON
I've graduated from pretty terrified to starting to be comfortable. Someone just has to give me time. I get along with all cats as long as they aren't bullies to me, actually I kind of like cats and would love it if someone liked me. I do have weepy eyes which come and go when I'm stressed.

If you're here because you want to help the undercat, and you would like a small project that will pay back in purrs and headbutts with a little patience, do a good deed and choose me.

Cinnamon is a real sweetheart and quite an athlete, too. She loves playing with the bouncing ball that Siri gave her and the scratching post. I'm glad she gets a lot of exercise because she loves to eat. She likes to look out the windows--especially in the front where she can watch people walking on the sidewalk. She's getting used to the city environment and its noises. Terry and I think that she is happy here. Cinnamon is still shy, hiding under the bed when anyone comes to visit. We're glad that we adopted her--she is very loving and lots of fun
.
April 4, 2018:
Cinnamon likes to look out the bedroom window at sunrise to look at the birds. If we're not up to open the blinds she starts pulling on them and looks at us and then we rush to open the blinds. After she finishes watching the birds she is all set for breakfast. Then she takes my warm spot on the bed after I get up. She is so cute.


Terry

She is so affectionate and shows it by giving nose rubs. I just love it!

SAM
Hi there, I'm Sam the Siam! I was rescued from a hoarder situation in south western Virginia. So I am pretty used to being around other cats, but haven't really gotten the hang of 'people' yet. On the flip side, I DID get the hang of Litterbox 101, Wet Food Testing 2.0, and Catnip Toy Recess. Right now I'm super curious about the other kitties that live here and I really want to play with them. We chirp at each other and race and run all over the house. I'm still shy of fostermom, but I have let her catch me to rub my belly a few times. I'm all vetted and should be ready to go home in a couple of weeks.

Hi All!

Sam is doing really well adjusting to his new home! At first, it was a bit of a challenge. He was a little shy and scared in the beginning. It took time for him to come out of his shell. I knew we were making progress when he started flopping down in front of me and would lay on his side, purring and waiting to be petted. A real love bug!

Once I felt he was comfortable in his surroundings and that he trusted me, I then had to start integrating him with my first kitty, Kevin (who is also a Siamese Rescue) – not an easy task! Although both cats were known to get along with other cats, the process was not overnight. After weeks of slow integration, a ton of research, and most importantly taking my cues from the cats, we had a breakthrough! I noticed that when the cats were separated, both stayed by the door for hours, as if to say, “Are you going to open this door so we can play, or what?!”

They have now graduated to being great buddies! They are still ironing out some of the “kinks” in terms of who sleeps where, favorite spots, etc. but I do feel it is a great fit! They eat out of each other’s food bowls with no problem. Neither shows any aggression. Sam steals Kevin’s kitty bed whenever he can (even though he has his own plush bed as well!) While Kev seems to be the big boy on campus (at 16 lbs.), Sam (at 6 lbs.) isn’t a push over and gets in some “cheap shots” when they wrestle and play! Sam is happy to roll over and “paw” Kevin. I love to see them race from one end of the house to the other, occasionally “stalking” each other. It is hours of entertainment to watch! We adore both of them!

Since Kevin is a deaf kitty, I am hoping in time Sam can be his “ears” for him and let him know when people come into the room, when it’s mealtime, etc. Right now the only thing these two want to do is play!!

Sam has even adjusted to my two young boys, allowing them to pet him while he rolls over and purrs. He is such a beautiful addition to our family! Having Sam makes our family complete! Thank you to all the volunteers – Belinda (Sam’s foster mommy) Gail and all of the people from the Meezer Express who took time out of their busy lives to deliver such a beautiful boy to a loving family and change not only Sam’s life but ours as well. We are forever grateful!

NOUGAT
I have had a rough start to meezer life & am looking for a quiet & loving family to dote on me & spoil me! I have had bad experiences with dogs, so a home with a dog is not on my wish list.

Give me a few days to settle in & my foster meowm can tell you a little more about me.

Purrs,

Nougat is doing very well and loves his new home. He adapted much quicker than anticipated. He is gingerly exploring through the rest of the house. He loves to be near me. He does come to me when I call him (most of the time) :) He loves to lay at my feet while I am on the computer and is very relaxed. He is eating and using his litter box very well. He loves to play with his feathers and floor toys. He so far is not a lap cat but with time that may change as he will stay a short while if I am scratching his neck and head. He is such a sweet boy and I love him dearly.


Nougat has been home for a little over a month. He is my little wild child. Very entertaining and very lovable. He plays and loves his toys and running from room to room and floor to floor. He follows me everywhere and is like my little shadow. He is very happy and very content. We are waiting for his sister to come on Saturday and we are anxious to meet Clover. He has become a lap cat and enjoys laying by me or on me while I watch TV or reading. Right now he is laying on my desk while I am sending you this note.

Darrin, n/k/a Barry White "Barry" because he is so chill and a real smooth ladies man with Pippi, snuggling her, grooming her...I tried to talk Pete out of this name, but he was determined. Sigh. Lol. Barry is SUCH a lover. Loves cuddles, pets, likes to lick your hand when you give him pets, coos and chirps. Loves playing with Pippi and sometimes they let us join in! We adore him.

4/3/18
Things are going well. Barry is doing great on the prescription food and his test came back negative for any parasites or tummy problems! The vet said we can try weaning him off of the rx food if we want to, but I want to give him a while before trying that. He has been through so much tummy stuff I don't want to mix things up on him just when things are settled down. He and Pippi are getting along, mostly. He is bigger than she is and sometimes play gets a little rough. I worry but the vet said if they are hanging around together, playing together, napping together then everything is fine. I have to keep telling myself that one or the other would run off and hide and stop coming back for more tussling if there was a problem...but they tussle so hard sometimes! Running and wrestling, wrestling and running! I get tired just watching them! Lol

KOVI
I am playful and curious. I like to share the bed with you and get pets but I also like to do my own thing such as watch birds out the window or chase jingle balls around the floor. Since I have only been here a short time, Foster Meowmy has not introduced me yet to other kitties but I am very interested about who is on the other side of the door.

Notes from Home
The kiddos are doing so great. In the past few days we've had some good moments that we wanted to share. Thanks for doing all the good work you do!

Kovi is becoming much more affectionate, and asking for attention now. She will run around squeaking when she wants to play and flop on her back to get rubs. She and Kaz still have their disagreements about who gets to be the center of attention in play, but she is so much more relaxed, and a true part of our family now. We can't imagine what it would be like without her!

I can't believe it's been 2 years!!! Sookie Monster is quirky, funny and a lot of love. She has come a long way. When we first got Sookie she would sit arms distance wanting to be pet but would go away if we got too close. Now she sits on my chest every morning, licks my nose and head butts my mouth when she wants kisses. She curious and playful and still loves her solid gold treats, She loves to talk and her different mews make us smile.

OZZY
Hi folks! Settling here nicely but I really want to be outside but that's against the rules. Oh and I'm a little over a year contrary to the initial report and I act my age or YOUNGER!! Ever had a kitten? Well adopt me and you'll know what it's like to have one. I'm everywhere (including your lap) and into everything so be prepared to "Osbourne proof" your house for me. Foster Mom can tell you what I'm talking about and it's not a bad thing but a FUN thing! Are you ready to have some FUN? If so, I'm ready too!!

Love,
Osbourne

Notes from Home
040410 - The following posts are copy and pasted from emails that I have sent to Kathy, folks in the Meeser Express and to Peggy, in an attempt to bring everyone up to date on the entire process.

032010 - We arrived at the home destination around 7:20pm. Construction on I495 screwed up my GPS directions and I missed a turn for I295 miles before I needed to get off and ONLY from a Local traffic lane. That put me on a course around the East side of I495 and a little bit longer journey. Maybe that was meant to be since once on the Northern end of I295 traffic was stop and go a large portion of the trip. Once back in Baltimore, I promised to stop off so that my sister could see the newest addition to the family. He was a real character during the entire trip. The chatter only popped up from time to time, however, he pulled every last trick out of his book to get my attention. The two best trick were a long reach through one of only 2 of the larger openings in the carrier door in an attempt to tap me on the elbow that was resting on the arm rest (His front paw was out of the carrier well beyond his elbow). The other trick, he would grab on to the carrier door and use that to turn himself over, feet up in the air then lay there and wait for me to talk to him. I am sure he would have loved a belly rub at this point but driving made that a little bit of a problem. I was also amazed at his Houdini act after a visit with my sister. Somehow, he managed to get his collar off and then played with it the rest of the trip.

Since home, he has gone absolutely crazy with all of the new hiding places in my bedroom. He has also shown the playful side at home, but I will have to break him from biting on my toes....LOL!!! I have already been able to hold him like a baby which turns that motor on to run nice and loud. While in that position, he also likes to grab hold of the fingers with his sharp little teeth. It is amazing as well how much he is like our first Siamese that was put down several years ago. As I walk through the bedroom, he will grab to the ankles. I have already told my father he will need to be really careful once we let the little guy roam the house. The Siamese playfulness is clearly in this kitty's personality. I am really anxious to see how he handles having the entire run of the house, of course with another feline, Anna. So far, I have been amazed with his behavior. I left his carrier next to the litter box for now. He has been in and out of it several times this evening; maybe it is a safe area for him at this time. He has been bouncing around the room since released, but loves to hide under the bed just to jump out at my toes every now and then. Now that he has slept all day in travel, he will most likely be running most of the night. LOL!!!!

Anna, the Siamese with the current run of the house has not yet seen the new family member, but it seems clear that she is aware that SOMETHING is different.

Thanks to everyone who had a part in the transportation of the little guy! He will clearly be a bright and interesting addition to my daily routine.

032110 - Kathy, funny you should ask about getting any sleep the first night. I had started this email below before I got your email about getting any sleep:

Wow, what a first night for this guy in a new home. I put him in his bed that was sent with him, he smelled around and knew it was his, but didnt stay there long. Once the lights were off, he was in my face and his motor NEVER stopped. In fact he woke me up twice with the motor running. In my ear, it eliminates the 18 wheeler noise going up the main drag in front of our house. I bought a new computer desk that looks sort of like a hospital table that hovers over beds so that I could do some computer work in my bedroom during the next few days of adjustment. Last evening after sending your the email, he laid down on my bed and just hung his head over my leg I had to wake him up so that I could go to bed.

Currently, he is memorized by the traffic outside. I opened the window just a little and he has already perched there watching all the new sights.

He has already eaten dry food and has used his litter box.

I now have white hair over my blue comforter. Looks like he is losing his winter coat. I noticed the brush so it appears he has been losing it for sometime. Based on our other Siamese, he should eventually stop the shedding. Thats what they make those sticky rollers for I suppose.

I really appreciate all of the items in the Goodie Bag. I wont need to buy toys for a LONG time. When he gets out to the real world, he will be amazed with even more toys as Anna has a lot but seldom plays with them.

On a side note, two days ago, the spring pollen kicked up and is throwing my allergies for a tizzy. Once I get the spring stuff under control, I will be in much better shape!

Finally, his nipping and gnawing on fingers and toes ....is that just a young thing that with time will grow out of or is that a Siamese thing. Any ideas how to at least depress it a little?

040410 - Let me do this update a little in reverse, chronologically, so that I don’t forget to include this information. We have our first vet appointment scheduled for Friday, April 9 for his first general check-up and physical. When I made the appointment, I told them that info about the cat had been faxed to them already and they stated that have nothing. No problem! I have all the links and data that Kathy had sent to me from previous vet visits and I will simply print it out and take it along.

Keeping Ozzy quarantined from Anna was a real chore. It lasted a grand total of about 2 ½ days before he figured out how to get out of my room. Anna was a little help in that she had already learned to open my bedroom door from the outside and surprised Ozzy once or twice, sending him scurrying under the bed. During the night of the 3rd day, I hear my door shaking and rattling, which woke me up, of course. Before I could get to the door, I find Ozzy lying just outside my door, staring at Anna who is laying on the floor staring at him with about 6 feet between them. Fortunately, by this time, I was able to find that he had already used the litter box and was eating his food AND was a very active little guy.

Anna, being queen of the house, so she thought, has this muffled, under her breath growl with an occasional hiss that sounds really nasty (HAHA!!!) but never phased Ozzy at all. Since, they have chased each other up and down the stairs and around the living room in something just shy of a nor-easter. Frequently, the storm ends with Anna having her fill of fun and the normal under the breath growl and hiss. I told Peggy and Kathy that I was waiting for Ozzy to run past Anna and swat her on the butt. That has happened frequently in the midst of the chase. Anna either tires of the play or feels that further play is just totally unnecessary for the queen of the house.

Recently, I have been working 3 days a week. Those 3 days are generally 9 to 10 hour days. When I get home, about 9:30 pm, he is generally on a chair next to my father at the kitchen table. According to my father, he spends a lot of his time there sleeping from dinner time until I get home. When I walk to the door, it is not unusual to be greeted by a little of his talking. I finish my late dinner and he is sitting on my lap while I am checking email. If I get up from the computer, he is now stretched out on the chair and I have to get another chair OR as I sit down, he will jump in the chair behind me and wants to take 2/3s of the chair and graciously allows me to have the front 1/3 of the chair. It is not unusual for us to have a nightly tussle of whether or not he will get up on my computer table or not. A squirt pistol has assisted with that decision a little bit recently. A spray bottle has proven VERY effective in keeping him off the kitchen table. He got sprayed, maybe twice and now when he sees the bottle in my hand he goes scurrying or does not get up at all.

April Fool’s day we made our first trip to the shore. Normally the trip is a 3.5 hour ride to my Eastern Shore home stopping only for personal rest stops (food and bathroom)/leg stretching/gas, etc. This trip took about 5 hours as I had pre-planned to briefly visit with my aunt in the nursing home before leaving the Baltimore area. This was the first time we have traveled with him since bringing him home on March 20th. The ride from home to the nursing home was a little noisy (about 25 minutes). Found out that my aunt had left the facility for a doctor’s appointment so we didn’t stay but a few minutes. Before putting the carrier back into the car, I rearranged the back seat and stacked him and Anna on top of each other. Once he was up so he could see, he laid down and I heard very little from him the rest of the trip.

Since arriving at the Eastern Shore home, Ozzy has been more fascinated than a 3 years old with an Easter-egg hunt. LOL!!!! He is finding sooooooo many more hiding places with a second home to live in. He is amazed with the noises of the birds he is hearing from the screened in porch area and even more places to hide out there. He has also found that I have vertical blinds that make interesting places to play hide and seek.

When he is not sleeping, in addition to hide and seek, pester his adult family and chase the house queen, Ozzy has found a lot of fun times playing in a nylon tunnel I found for him at the local Walmat store ($7.98 for all the fun he has had), chasing any wand we pick up OR chasing in circles after the little red spot on the floor that never stops moving….haha!!!! We found a SmartyKat Loco!Laser at the Walmat for $4.00, another cheap investment to drive him LOCO!!!!!

Long story short, I must tell you that is this kitty is over a year old, I will eat my fingers instead of letting Ozzy eat them. HAHA!!! I am not upset at the difference in the age, if fact it’s kind of kool. He is constantly nibbling on fingers or toes. He will start off with a heavy duty licking with that rough sandpaper tongue of his and then when he thinks he has put you to sleep or you aren’t paying attention, he will get a little rougher. He has learned that when I say STOP he goes back to licking or dashes off only to return a few minutes later purring his little heart out. He LOVES to play hide and seek when I am making the bed. It ok when you know he’s there, but often times he will appear to leave the bedroom and then come back under the bed and surprise me. Is not nice to fool people!!! LOL!

It is absolutely amazing how many personality traits that this kitty has that mimics the seal point we had to put down 5 years ago due to kidney failure (1 ½ months after mom passed – he was her cat). We hold him like a baby and he purrs his heart out, chasing feet, chasing the laser pointer, I have to fight him off to get into my bean bag chair (he likes to sleep there), and on and on and on. My father has even commented that he has far more personality that Anna, but Anna is still her little Queen!!! LOL!!!

Thank God for an Easter Sunday with lots of free time; that time allows me an opportunity to write this long update for you. Ozzy has become a very interesting part of the family in just 2 weeks. After a very stressful close to 2009, it is so much fun to walk into a room with a kitty who is just looking for ALL the attention you can give him while he is awake.

Have a VERY HAPPY Easter/Holiday weekend!!!!!! Thanks for the help from each and every one of you in Ozzy’s adoption!

040910 - Ozzy just came back from his first vet visit at 9:30am this morning. The little boy is getting to be a big boy already. The vet weighed him in at 7.75 pounds (only about a pound shy of his 5.5 year old "sister" Anna) of squirming kitty flesh. He was squirming so much, the vet could hardly listen to his heart with the stethoscope. Vet says he is in great health and was amazed when I told her that he was originally a stray. Ozzy made a big hit in the office. The vet assistant who checked us in told the rest of the staff about the really pretty kitty and many other staff members had to see him before we left office. The entire staff was amazed that he was a stray but they LOVED his color marking!


041910 - Of all the fantastic and realist information provided for me regarding Ozzy, there was one thing that was omitted. Ozzy has become the purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrfect alarm clock. He has successfully awaked me now as early as 4am, 4:15am, 5:20am and as late as 6:20am. My normal alarm clock time is between 6:30 and 7am so 6:20am is good; too bad that has only happened once. Obviously, he thinks that everyone sleeps when he sleeps. HAHAHA!!!!

We have taken two trips to the Eastern Shore. Both trips, as long as he can see who is in the vehicle, he rides VERY well. If he can’t see us, he is talking/crying constantly. Once at the shore house, he loves the screened in porch. I am waiting for him to have a conversation with the local bird families; I know it is only a matter of time.

Since he was adopted, he has learned a few tricks. He is now dancing really nicely with the help of this little red dot that just seems to chase him all over the room. He has also learned how to slide through a 4 foot long nylon tunnel trying to catch up with that red dot that just appears out of nowhere but always tries to run over his feet. Whenever he sees it in the tunnel, he will start to run and then slides the rest of the way. Amazing how hard we have laughed while he plays with the laser pointer.

050210 - Ozzy is GROWING like a weed! I still agree with Kathy, he was considerably younger than was originally thought, but that was fine for me. He and Annie are getting along, in fact, this morning, I watched Ozzy and Annie lay side-by-side on a clothes hamper looking outside (first REALLY warm weekend to open windows). Ozzy went to put his paw on Annie and she sprung up and "boxed" him with a left jab, and a right hook and took off running. Ozzy laid there wondering what the heck just happened (LOL!!!!) Ozzy has clearly gotten the "lay of the land" in the month he has been here. He will go from one thing to another with the look in his eyes "what can I get into next?”. He still loves to nibble on fingers or ears and even got my sister's nose last weekend. He doesn't bite hard, just enough to let you know that he has nipped you.

Ozzy has been to the beach twice so far; once with Annie and once solo. The weekend of the solo trip, my father called me to tell me that I would have to leave Ozzy home the next time for Annie. Annie was roaming around looking for Ozzy the entire weekend.

Have a great week!
Chuck


April 1, 2018 (This is not an April Fools...haha)

Hello Meezer family!

Hard to believe that the 8th anniversary if Ozzy’s adoption is here already. Boy does time fly!

First, I must apologize for not updating more frequently, but it seems that Ozzy’s adoption anniversary falls right before tax time. This is the first time in YEARS that I have taken taxes to the accountant in the middle of March instead of right before the April deadline. Maybe that change is responsible for the 4 consecutive Nor’easters hitting the east coast in the past 3 weeks. Regardless, I wanted to give you a complete update since things have changed immensely since since Ozzy first entered the household. I am sorry in advance for the length.

When Ozzy came home 8 years ago, he became the second in this household. My father had a Chocolate Point Siamese, so Ozzy had a sister to meet when he arrived at his fur ever home. Keeping them separated was literally impossible. Annie, his sister, I believe was more afraid of me than she was of Ozzy (When Annie was adopted, she had a bad eye infection and because of the kitten’s sharp claws, I would hold her in a towel while Dad administered the eye drops. She never forgot that and ran from me always.) Ozzy, however, made a big hit with Dad and i would come home from work to find him holding him sitting at the kitchen table.

I think that Dad even missed Ozzy when he would travel with me to the eastern shore vacation home. There were weekends that Dad would travel along and we always took Annie along as well even though Annie was not an overly friendly cat with Ozzy or I either one.

Fast forward to Christmas Eve of 2010. Dad and I went out to eat and leaving the restaurant Dad fell and broke his hip. That left me to care for a cat who did not want me to be near her and eventually missed Dad immensely.

Dad was in rehab during winter and spring of 2011 and had a room looking at the garden area of the facility. He loved watching one of the residents feed the feral cats that had adopted the facility to be their home. As spring approached, I would hear about these cats daily when I visited. Dad had his eye on one of the female cats and eventually told the staff that mother cat was going to have a litter and he wanted one just like mother. (mother was a beautiful tuxedo). Sure enough, the mother had a litter of 4 and there was a black and white tuxedo in the litter.

Father’s Day, 2011, Dad (or shall I say, me) adopted a cute 6 week old tuxedo kitten to join Annie and Ozzy. The tuxedo was named Sunny and he visited Dad in the rehab and later assisted livings every day he was there. Sunny became well known among the staff at all of the facilities he stayed in for the next few years.

While Dad was in-patient, we experienced health issues with Annie. First she developed dermatology issues that i feel sure had lots to do with Dad’s absence in the long run. It is unfortunate that it took her getting sick to allow me to handle her and love her as Ii was with Ozzy and Sunny. Once Annie’s skin had healed, I began taking her to the vacation home for weekends also since she was now allowing me to pick her up and put her in the carrier. All was good until November 12, 2012. The 3 cats and I were at the vacation home and about 5am I was awakened by a blood curdling meow. I went to find Annie was near my room and had blood on her face but could not find any injury. I found blood on her blanket where she was sleeping in Dad’s room.

Saturday morning, I was able to get an emergency appointment at a local vet. According to her and the staff, Annie’s core temperature had dropped very low and they had her on hot blankets for about 40 minutes and the temperature did not change. The vet felt that the blood at her mouth was most likely the result of a cancer. I explained that i had seen nothing to give warning signs and the vet explained that it was most likely inward until the blood started to appear. The vet said that we could spend lots of money to treat and have no success. She recommended putting her down. That is the hardest thing I ever had to do and it wasn’t even my cat. Sure ruined that weekend! Taking 2 cat carriers home instead of 3 was quite hard.

Taking Sunny to see Dad, like I said was quite popular, even with the other residents. Dad eventually got frustrated with Sunny, since he could not hold him. Sunny, even though I got him at 6 weeks old, he is not one who likes to be held, UNLESS he WANTS to be held. Dad could hold Ozzy, but for him it was not the same.

In early 2015, my sister and I began discussing bringing Dad home from the assisted living. He was confined to a wheelchair so we needed to make adjustments at home, and needed to have a chairlift installed since he wanted NOTHING to do with having a bedroom downstairs. As we got closer to the day of departure from the assisted living, Dad would see cats on TV and say he wanted a lap cat when he gets home. Then he would see a cute dog on TV and want a dog. I had to spoil what I tried to make a surprise but i did not want to talk dogs and cats at the same time.

I had already found a female cat for Dad. June 7, we brought Dad home but there was an understanding that we would not adopt the cat until he had been home for a month. Trying to adjust to having caregivers and Dad at home was enough for Ozzy and Suny. Adding new cat to the mix would create a nightmare all at one time. July 12, 2015, I adopted the calico mother (Gypsie) and when i went to pick her up i fell in love with one of her remaining kittens another calico (Poppy).

If i had it to do over again, I would have gotten 2 kittens instead of mom and a kitten. I love Gypsie, but she has been VERY protective of her kitten, even though the kitten is now near 2 years old. Sunny and Ozzy get along with Poppy relatively well. Gypsie and Ozzy (he is clearly the alpha male in the group) can sometimes get along, but Sunny and Gypsie do not get along well most of the time. Gypsie will go into her crying mode to let me know she is being threatened, even if Sunny is just sitting looking at her from a distance. haha.

Yes, you have done the math correctly! I now have 4 cats in the house. Ozzy, Sunny, Gypsie and Poppy.

Dad was able to hold Gypsie a few times and loved watching Poppy (another young kitten) tumble around while playing. The girls were not home long before we found they had an issue with their bowels and bladder. Lots of inappropriate litter box use after they had been doing fine.

Gypsie started first when I noticed mucus and blood in her very loose stool. A vet visit and blood test revealed that she had Giardia. Fortunately she was rather cooperative taking her antibiotics out of a dropper. Not long afterwards, I had to take Poppy to the vet for the same issue. Because the boys could have caught it, i had to treat Sunny and Ozzy with antibiotics as well. After 3 rounds of antibiotics for the girls and about $1000, the antibiotics finally checked the problem, or so i thought. Gypsie had a recurrence a month or 2 later but thankfully have now been free of the parasite now for over 6 months! YEAH!!!!!

During the time of treating the girls, Dad was hospitalized and eventually passed, unable to shake pneumonia. The night Dad passed, all 4 cats were in the room with me while i was sending messages out on my laptop. It is quite interesting, although Gypsie was only here with Dad for about 5 months, it is amazing how often i find her sitting in Dad’s wheelchair that i have yet to sell. I found her recently playing with one of Dad’s aprons that he used to keep from getting food all over himself at meals.

Now when i travel to the vacation home, i have 3 carriers again to take 4 cats (Gypsie and Poppy get along rather well together.) All 4 of the cats enjoy the vacation home since i have a huge screened porch and they love to watch the squirrels and birds. Gypsie, Poppy and Sunny travel very well. During the past 2 years, Ozzy has not been riding as well. He will make himself sick meowing whether it is going to the vet (about 35 minute ride) or the vacation home (about 3.5 hours). I need to check this out with a vet visit, but i get the impression that he is quite irritated that he has to be in the carrier. It could be too, that while Dad was in assisted living and then home, we did not travel to the vacation home as frequently as we did before Dad fell. Maybe he is just “out of practice” too.

Pictures included are a little old as i have not taken new ones recently. --- The website would not allow me to upload pictures. Pictures are too large according to the message.

Ozzy - you will notice easily.
Sunny - tuxedo
Gypsie - faded blue calico
Poppy - calico and smaller than mom


Sorry for the long update!
