Lynne,

Snowball is beautiful!  And I could see the smile on your face as you wrote 
about all her funny quirks and playfulness that you're learning about.  What a 
wonderful time this is for you and her.  And such a reward for all that you 
went through with Boo Boo, from the loving and tenacious care to the pain in 
letting him go.  I think Boo Boo is enjoying himself immensely, watching the 
both of you from the Rainbow Bridge.  He's probably whispering into Snowball's 
ears funny little things to do to make you laugh.

Oh thank you Wendy for your kind words.  What a difference a day can make 
though.  This little dickens kept us up all night.  She would take turns on 
each side of the bed, blatting.  We'd say, come up Snowy, she would, purr like 
a freight train, cuddle up and sleep for 20 minutes, jump down and start the 
whole routine again.  This morning she was racing around the house like a 
lunatic, playing hide and seek.  She was kind of naughty yesterday, stalking 
Lennie, ate his food, layed in his litter box.  Did nothing in his litter box, 
just lay in it.  So we changed Lennies food.  This morning she ate her own 
stuff and is using her own litterbox and I think she understands that Lennie 
wants nothing to do with her.  She'll still walk by him and hiss just to bug 
him.  He doesn't care.  She reminds me a bit of BooBoo, very gentle and loving 
but she has a more playful streak in her.  Of course poor Boo was in no 
condition to be playful.  She certainly has helped
 ease the pain of losing him, probably because she is pretty high maintenance.  
We need to comb her at least once a day and clean her eyes twice a day because 
they do tear a lot.  I swear she would be show material if those eyes weren't 
so much work.  I'm not going to do anything extreme with them, just bathe them 
with warm water a couple times a day so they don't get crusty.  Yep we love her 
and you know, if dear Boo hadn't been with us I probably would never have been 
made so aware of all the devastating illnesses and terrible conditions so many 
of these cats live with.  A real eye opener.

Lynne,
 
Bless you for taking in this kitty.  It brought tears to my eyes to read your 
post, because I know how very lucky she is to have the new family she's just 
inherited.  She probably doesn't know it yet, but it won't take her long.  What 
a wonderful thing that Boo Boo is part of the reason that this beautiful cat 
now has a forever home.  Please keep us posted on how she does.

We met the foster mom of the cat we adopted at the vets this morning and now 
have our new little girl home.  She was a rescued cat from this horrible shop 
owner in town.  I was expecting to meet a kind of pathetic looking little kitty 
but to our surprise, she's a 9 pound gorgeous white persian with amber colored 
eyes.  She's absolutely beautiful but for the moment prefers to be upstairs on 
her own.  We're not forcing ourselves on her but the foster mom s ays she is 
very affectionate and loves attention.  She inspected every inch of the house 
and will come down when she wants to.  We are just so happy to finally have her 
here.  She has never had a real home, just a pet store and the foster mom.

Thank you Diane.  She's doing just what I want.   I lay down on the bed and the 
little precious jumped up and curled right up along side of me, stretched out 
and made sure she had her little paw on my hand before dozing off.  She hasn't 
stopped purring since she's been here.  The first thing she did when she got 
home was to go over to Lennie who was sleeping in HER new bed, put her nose on 
his and woke him up.  Poor Len was so startled, hissed at her a couple times 
and that was that.  Snowy just walked away and went on exploring.  I think she 
is going to be a terrific addition if not a bit of a diva though.  When Bob 
came upstairs to see her and was leaving she blatted at him as if to say, hey, 
the new cat is here, get back and pet me.  I think Snowy is gonna be a bit of a 
high maintenance girl, but we're used to it with our very spoiled Lennie.  

I hope BooBoo is proud that we took this little one in.  I'm pressing some 
flowers from the arrangement his vet sent to us.  They'll go into his little 
momento box.

I'm trying my hardest to make me be her favorite Sue, but even though she was 
cuddling with me on the bed, when Bob would try to leave, she would blat at him 
to come back.  She hates being caged so on the way home we let her out.  
There's lots of room to move around in the van.  Where did she wind up

2008-03-22 Thread Lynne
Thanks Dede.  How quickly things can change.  She has decided that she will
not be intimidated by Lennie.  She has been stalking him and they actually
came nose to nose.  She slightly hissed, he loudly hissed and took a swipe
at her.  She would not back down so we had to do an intervention.  She ate
his food so I had to change it.  Fortunately she used her own litter box.
She's a feisty girl with a mind of her own but just gorgeous and full of
personality.  I learned at the Vets that in the past she didi have a litter
of kittens while in that store but they all died.  Not surprising with the
conditions she was living under.  The vet told us to arrange for her spaying
in a couple weeks or so.   He doesn't want to do it right away so when she
does go to him she will know she is coming home afterwards.

Hey Lynne

That is terrific. I am so glad your girl is home she sounds delightful.

On another note, my sister's Kitty (angel) Slinky visited her in a dream the
other night. She said in her dream he was alive again. She was not sure
about the dream's meaning. I told her SLinky was letting her know he was
alright. She  told me it was more than two years before he husband Doug came
to her in a  dream. I told her I thought it was because she knew where Doug
had gone(heaven), but she was not as clear where Slinky was. I have only had
one cat visit me after passing. I am ok with that I will see them all later.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend.
