Ok, I know some may think this off topic, but a lot of you know visiting the cats at the Humane Society has become somewhat of a tonic for me. Probably some of the best medicine I've had in years! yeah

Several weeks ago I started working with these two young cats who had been abused - someone tried to hang them (a child, sadly), but fortunately they were saved and I stumbled upon them one day in the manager's office. I love orange and white cats and that's what caught my eye, so I started visiting them every week. They were understandably both a bit shy, but Marlo came around rather quickly, and I could hold him (even though he was getting a little pudgey!) and play with him, but his brother, Schmutzie, had been injured more severely, and while I finally got him to eat treats out of my hand, he still generally hid. He tolerated being touched, never hissed or became aggressive, but cowered. They were about a year old and the manager was mandating they be adopted together. I so wanted to take them but with health issues there was no way I could chase after a cat that was going to hide under furniture and such. And until I'm more stable financially, I really can't take on any pet. So I have opted for regular visiting. I buy treats at the dollar store and visit a lot of the cats - especially the older ones who tend to be there for awhile.

Sorry, I'm rambling again! rolleyes But yesterday I stopped in to do my weekly visit and "my boys", as I had come to call them, had been adopted earlier that day! I wish I could have been there to say good-bye, but I was thrilled because finding someone who would take two special needs cats (emotionally speaking) was a challenge. This woman had evidently worked in a shelter in Texas, so understood animals. So my boys have their home!!! Yea!!! yeah yeah yeah

It's silly, but I just had to share that. There is part of me deep down inside that is angry that my situation - both health and financially - is preventing me from getting an animal. I've always had a pet. But I've always been able to take care of them.

I held a kitten in my hands the other day and it was so tiny, and it reminded me of when I first got my last cat, who lived to be 20. And a kitten just tends to steal your heart. But they get under your feet and run around and it's really easy to trip over them. So I think if I am able to get a cat again, it will be one of the older ones. And you know when I look into their eyes it reminds me of so many of us. We're older and not feeling so hot and can't be with the people and go to the places we used to. There's a sadness to it, but giving them a treat and talking to each one is a treat for me.

Ok, I'll stop! If you're not an animal lover I hope you stopped reading long ago!! smilewinkgrin

PALady,

I'm a cat person too. Our new cat is an orange tabby. Very nice markings. We got him as a kitten just over a year ago. Named him Harley because he purred so loudly it sounded like motorcycle! Harley has been challenge. He is all boy and very active. He loves to hide and attack and it easy to trip over him. We love him and he is a great comfort to me especially on bad pain days. He is a "bed buddy" when I just want to lie down and read or rest. I know, as you do, that once a pet person, always a pet person. I hope you can see your way to one soon. They offer so much love in return for the roof over their head and food in their dish.

Thanks for sharing that, I wish you would have been able to have gotten those cats, your post made me feel kind of sad, I miss my moggieway ( we called called him Moggie!) he was abandoned mix terrier, and was raise with cats and kittens, the dog accually liked his paws and would then rub his paws over his face just like a cat would do when grooming its self! He would also lay on his back and play with a ball of yarn with his paws just like a cat would do!  We had him 19 years and finally had to put him down that was one of the hardest things to have to do. I stayed and held him through it all and brought him home and burried him in our yard and planted a tree on top of him! My Moggie tree!  I have always had either a cat or a dog since being married, but after moggie was gone the wife did not want another pet, and  I relented. After I get this place sold and get settled I will have either a cat or two or a small dog! They are such good company to have! They give unconditional Love!
Anyway I enjoyed your PALady! ( even if it made me sad!) wink

Ok I'm not a cat lover even though I just got my family a kitten. But I am so thrilled someone adopted them together. I know you will miss them but you know they went to a good home. Now you need to find another one or a pair to spend time with. If you think about it PAlady you helped them recover from there emotional scars as much as you could. Now they have a chance to be happy together... I give you paws for that effort.

<--- Is VERY much a cat person. The DBF and I have 4 or our own and then there's two others that live here as well.

There are other people out there like me that will specifically choose animals that have had a hard life. All my life my cats have been strays that I took in. When I got my first shelter cat, he had been literally swung by the tail. He was very skittish. But after a lot of patience he eventually learned that anyone that came into the house was not going to hurt him and that not all humans were evil.

My most recent addition (about a year ago after my baby died) was the same way. He was 7 years old, and I chose him because he had been there for almost a year waiting for someone to love him. He has turned out to be a wonderful friend. Every night he comes up and sleeps by my side all night.

I'm sure if the new person used to work in a shelter, then they are there to give those buys a good life. Yes, it's sad that you didn't get a chance to say goodbye, but at least you know that it is someone who will love them.

I am so glad you got them adopted PA. That is so coooool!!! Hugs girl!

Thanks for sharing your sweet story. Took my mind of my pain and exhaustion for a few minutes and for that I'm grateful. Besides, I can't imagine being without a cat...or a dog for that matter.

Awe, thanks everyone! I love reading your stories. And the names of your pets are so neat - Harley, Mighty Mouse, and Moggieway - the dog who thought he was a cat!

Piercings I loved your story....after you had such tragedy. Animals can bring us so much. I have a hunch somewhere in my future will be one of those older cats. You know, there are a lot of them at the shelter people are having to leave because they can't afford to keep them anymore. Ane of course, the ones who are there because an elderly owner died or went to a nursing home.

Right now, visiting these cats is bringing so much to my life. WhiteBeard if you want to get a smile before you're resettled, go to your local shelter (with some treats, of course) and ask if they'll let you give the cats a treat. I do have to add we have a new Humane Society facility; it's state of the art, so it's fairly pleasant to go to. Their old building was in the way of a road expansion, so they got a good settlement to help build the new place. They have vets there and do the spay/neutering for all animals who are old enough before they are adopted.

I have a hunch one of these days I will fall in love with one of them and just won't be able to keep myself from bringing him or her home. Right now I want to bring them ALL home; now that's a bit of a problem! smilewinkgrin

BTW Laurie - is this your first cat? Because they have a way of growing on you! I was always a dog person, and I still love dogs, but they're a lot more physical work. But those felines can grow on you!

Oh, PAlady, that is wonderful!! I feel so bad for the animals that stay in the shelter for years & years (if they are a no-kill shelter). I know there are some dogs in my local shelter that have been there for at least 7 or 8 years. It is horrible. I wish I could take them all in smilewinkgrin. I can imagine that this is a bitter sweet moment for you because you really adored those cats, but at least you know that they are in a good, safe, loving home now!

We had a ~ 4wk stray kitten in the kennel at work this weekend (it was an orange tabby). Someone found a litter of feral kittens & this one was really sick. They didn't think it would make it through the first night in the kennel, it was so bad, but when I came into work Sat morning, it kitten was up. As the day when on, he continued to improve. We (the techs AND the vets) all got attached to him & decided that if he lived we'd make him the office cat. Sadly, when I called to check on him on Monday, he had passed away. sad I really thought he was going to make it!

Awe,Skeye, that's so sad. I know you love these creatures, too. But I'll bet you can easily find another "office cat" without having to look very hard!

PAlady we have had two cats over the many years.  The first one was so annoying I think she ruined my ideas of cats.  She was so needy and was always rubbing on me when I was trying to cook or do laundry.  But then a stray cat showed up at the door.  We named him lightning.  He was the best cat I had ever encountered other than my moms cat. (who is the size of a dog)
 
Three years later Lightning disappeared.  Wasn't from lack of attention and being spoiled I think he got sick or injured.  Its been awhile since we've had another cat.  But my daughter was driving (shes 16) and she parked in the walmart parking lot begging me to get one of the free kittens.  So I gave in...lol
 
Shes a mean one but I think I might like her for that.  She even stands up to my boston terrier so that shows something..lol

PAlady, I would gladly send you Oscar, he is a white shorthair with orange head and tail, very beautiful but very feral!!! Doesn't want to be touched, suffers me to stroke him sometimes. I got him for the kids to get over their fear of animals and guess what he's increased it!!! The vet said he has a dodgy heart so whether that makes him grumpy I don't know, I love cats but this one really doesn't like people!!! He's hilarious, bites anyone in range! I hear people outside saying what a beautiful cat and feel like yelling out the window DON"T TOUCH HIM! He lives up to his name, Oscar the grouch!

PAlady, I am so glad that your boys were adopted. I also know the part about missing them and not being able to say goodby, but you known that those two cats are where they are today because people like you were willing to spend time with them, showing them what a loving and compassionate person can do. As I read this post tonight, all I needed was the title of the thread and I knew what happened. It was funny as I stopped by my son's house about a half hour ago on my way home from work and he showed me his new cat. His manager of the Petco he works for found the cat abandoned and mistreated on the street recently. The vet did his part and made sure the cat was going to be ok. My son fell in love with the furry guy and the manager said that if he would take the cat home, they would pay for all the expenses. He now has two cats and many tanks of fish (he manages their aquatic department). Strange mix cats and fish. Anyway, I am rejoicing with you that you guys found a home. I was happy to shed a few tears as I read this. Hope you have a great night. Blessings!

PALady, I think your story was sweet. I am glad your boys got adopted. It sounds like they'll be in a good home and taken care of well. I know that does your heart good to know that. I think it is great that you take treats to the animal shelter for the cats. I know they appreciated it. And it is probably good for you too. It sounds like it is theraputic for you. I think it is great.

I am personally a dog lover. I have a mixed medium size dog. I've had her for about 7 years. My best friend found her, when she was a puppy, hopping down the sidewalk. She was so little. She wasn't running. She literally hopped. Anyway her husband wouldn't let her have the puppy, so I got her. My son was about 4 at the time. I let him name her. And he named her "Catie". He had a little girlfriend at daycare and that was her name. I thought is was cute, but told him when Catie wasn't his girlfriend, he couldn't change the dogs name. My sons' name is Connor so I put the C on Catie too. Her name is Catie Belle, and we call her just Catie. She is white with a black brindle spot over her eye. and she has a few other spots on her. She is a really good dog. I know that since my surgery, she has been right beside me. If I am in the bed, she is there. If I am in my recliner, she is right there. Same with the kitchen or even bathroom. She knows I don't feel good, somehow she senses it. She is a sweet,gentle, loving dog. And she is part of the family.

It's easy to get attached to animals. They are so loving. Maybe you'll be able to get you a cat one day. I know it would be company to you. Keep on going to the shelter with the treats until you get on of your own. I think that is super sweet.

Pa Lady,
 
I so enjoyed your story and the rest of the stories given here.  I am not a cat lover per se, as I have dogs, but I love all animals and I do like other people's cats and enjoy them when I am at a friend's house.  Your story was bittersweet, but I enjoyed it very much.  I do hope someday soon, you will be able to adopt a cat.

Palady,
That story really made me feel so much better today...I was a "Dog Person" for most of my life....about 8 years ago I found a cat outside of my apt. in the rain and cold and took her in...Then another one showed up...I took her in...I had already had one Giant Black male cat that I adopted from the Dumpster in Knoxville so I had a house full....One of the new ones got out for only one hour....ended up preggers.  She had 4 kittens.  I lived in a 2 BR apt. with my son so we were already tight....But I tell you what...those kittens and the older cats made me laugh and cry....They were wonderful.
 
Well, we had to find homes for the kittens and that was rough...But I still have the older 3...The male had cancer 2 years ago, but with surgery he did fine...cancer free!!!!  The other ones have been fixed and declawed and are pretty good...I love them so much.
 
It hurts me to go to a shelter, but I am glad that you find the time to do it.  More power to ya girl....
 
There will be a special place in Heaven for You......with a bunch of cats.. turn

This was such a lovely story, PaLady!  I'm so happy the kittens were adopted together.  I love dogs and cats and have one dog and two cats.  The cats were feral and we took them in, too.  The mother cat became friends with my daughters.  Then she disappeared for about a month.  When she reappeared she had four babies with her.  Once the kittens grew, my daughters caught them and they were spayed and neutered.  They found homes for two of the kittens and we took  the other two kittens and the mother cat.  One of my daughters has since moved and took one kitten with her.
 
Now, the remaining kitten reminded me of Schmutzie.  He, unfortunately, climbed up inside a truck motor (before we took them in) and was severely injured.  His hip was broken and 1/3 of his tail was cut off.  He walked with a limp and that's why we took him.  My adult daughter took him to the vets and he needed his hip rebuilt!  The vet did a magnificent job and he doesn't limp anymore.  But this really traumatized the poor little guy.  (His name is Roary.)  
 
He lived with me for 2 1/2 years before he allowed me  to pet him!  But he is a real "lover" now and I just enjoy him so much...he and Mama Kitty.  They are inside cats...all of the cats I've ever owned were indoor cats.  It's funny, PaLady.  They don't want to go out.  I have a screened pool and that's where they hang out and watch the birds and lizards.  They have a great life now and bring me such joy.

I am just loving all your stories!! Thank each one of you for adding!!

And Me, I really like the idea of being in heaven with a bunch of cats - and well, I have a few dogs roaming around up there, too!

I love how so many of you have taken in strays and, well, I'm sort of tearing up right now!

Thank you all!!

PaLady
p.s. Me I had to add how just reading these stories made you feel better. And how true that is for many of us, right? When I was holding that kitten I was laughing and giggling like I was a child. Maybe animals, for some of us, should be on our list of therapies for CP? yeah

I got my present cat 3 years I found her online and drove 400 miles each way to rescue her from the shelter. She's a domestic calico with a short pom for a tail, she looks like a real cream puff bet when it comes to lizards and mice lookout she is the fearless hunter she even stands her ground with my german shepard.

Yea she's special and yes I found her on Petfinder. You just know when the right animal comes along something clicks. I had wanted a Manx but I also wanted to rescue Petfinder is a great tool for anyone looking to adopt.

Just to add to the rescue stories: One of my two cats, "Sammy" is a rescue. He is one of the most gorgeous cats I've ever seen! He has long black fur with white paws and a whit spot on his chin. He is just the sweetest thing! I've only ever heard him growl or hiss a few times (he is 11 yrs old this year, and we have had him since he was a kitten). He just purrs and purrs and purrs. It is so loud that you can hear him in the next room! I often try to get him to sleep on my bed at night because his purring is so comforting (although he tends to wake me up quite often throughout the night - when I am actually asleep! - to be petted, although often what is really wants is to charm me so that I will get up and let him outside). We got him from a shelter after my first cat, a 6 month old kitten, "Chloe" went missing for two weeks. I guess someone had found a litter of kittens in a bag thrown next to the dumpster behind a restaurant. He was the teeniest scraggly little thing. It took him a year or so to learn how to use his claws (since he didn't have a mother to teach him - the kittens were very young when they were abandoned). He could get the claw out okay, but he didn't know how to retract it, so he would get stuck on things, often with his arm dangling from some piece of cloth! We would have to unhook his claws for him. Nowadays he is a fabulous hunter, but he still tends to get his claws stuck in my shirt when I hold him. The funny thing is that the day after we brought Sammy home, we found Chloe hiding in the pricker bushes in a nearby nature preserve! We brought her home & she was exhausted and hungry, as she probably hadn't eaten in days. She slept for several days, but when she awoke & saw Sammy she went ballistic! We refer to the resulting several months as "World War III." We really thought she was going to kill him! Even to this day Chloe picks on him (although she also intimidates all the dogs, as well as visiting dogs -- they are all terrified of her, & with good reason).

Skeye,
Just when I was feeling angry (about the dumpster thing) and sad (for the tiny abandoned kitten who floundered so with his skills) you made me burst out laughing with the WWIII story! Chloe must have thought she had a nightmare she couldn't wake up from! Good for Sammy, hanging in there!

I love reading all these stories, although the animal cruelty stuff really gets to me. Odd, since I've learned to maintain an emotional distance in order to help people, but when it comes to animals I turn to mush.

That reminds me....My multi-colored female rescue cat was a ***** on wheels from day one...She would attack me in the middle of the night!! We were both sleeping and all of a sudden she would wake up and BAM, slash me in the face!! Me and my son would have to cover ourselves up when she went on a rampage....she would come after us...It was to the point that I was going to take her to a shelter...Seriously!!! I couldn't protect my other 2 cats, and they would all be squared off... in a triangle....growling....furr all puffed up....and hissing...  We would laugh and then RUN for cover!!!  Never could figure out what the deal was... My male black cat was fixed, but the other 2 females weren't...I couldn't afford it.  And the TOMS that would stalk around the apt.  Oh My Goodness!!! That was an ordeal..
 
In the morning we would wake up to fur all over the carpet in clumps....and the cats all hiding in different parts of the apt.  Then we found out that we were moving into our new house with my mom.  She didn't know about the cats and I was so scared.... Eventually it was ok.  We ended up living across the street from a Vetrenarian and she found out about my male having cancer...I mean she diagnosed it.  She did surgery, removed the bottom front part of his jaw, and he is purrrrfect today....but his tounge hangs out all the time like he's a little "retarted". And she declawed and fixed the 2 females for a very nominal amount of money.... She is great.  Her name is Jane and I give her props...
 
anyway, that is my continued story...
