Meet Mea

It has been one year today, since I made my journey to the Rainbow Bridge. I know my Mom and Dad miss me very much and I really miss them, but it is so nice here at the Bridge. Mom and Dad understand that I am no longer in pain and that makes them happy. Every once in a while I see them looking at one of my pictures and it will bring a smile to their face and a tear to their eye all at the same time.

I have met so many angel furiends like SooLing, Scooter, and Lola; Calvin; Buddy, McKenna, Angel, Mookie, and Ricki; Zack and Riley; Ava; Sally; Biscuit; Micah and Jake; Sir Sonny Bono; Marley the Paw; Minxy; Patrick; Wyatt James, Aragorn, Toby Aragorn, and Sam I Am; Pickles; Ashley Grimalkins; Willow; Peaches; Baby Cat, Little Cat, Mittens, Friskie, and Morris; and so many others. I feel like a kitten again and every day I run in the fields chasing butterflies and playing with all my angel pals.

There is so much for us to do here: shopping at the Heavenly Mall, going with furiends for Ice Cream Sundaes in the Town Square, meeting new angels at the gate and helping them learn to fly, showing them how to sneak down and sprinkle angel dust on their families, sprinkling angel dust sprinkling on our families and our sick furiends, purring for all of our sick furiends, Cloud 9 Day, and so much more. We are all like happy, healthy, playful kittens again so we have the energy to do so many things.

I want Mom and Dad to know that I miss them and my fursiblings very much. I do sneak down to watch over them and my fursiblings as often as I can. Mimu and Maui are so cute. Each of them reminds me of me in different ways. Mimu loves to talk like me and Maui loves to play fetch with little paper balls like I used to.

Mom and Dad - I love you very much! I just want you to know that I am happy here at the Bridge and I will be watching over you and our family until the day you are able to join me here. Until then, remember all the happy times we had together and smile when you think of me.

Loving Purrs,

Rainy Days

It has been raining here in Las Vegas for the past 4 days. The clouds engulfed the mountains all around the valley and we even had fog. Finally the sun is shining again. We are just not used to all that rain.

We are now hanging around the house just enjoying the little spots of sun shining though the windows and helping mom clean house. We all helped out with the bed making after mom washed the bedding. That is always fun! **hehe**

It was a sad and then happy week here. We were trying to adopt another Siamese named Frankie. He was an abandoned kitty living behind a hotel that has been shut down about 50 miles from here. His Mommy and caregiver captured him and took him to the vets on Monday for a Feline Leukemia test and his shots. On Tuesday we received the sad news that Frankie tested positive for Feline Leukemia. That meant that we were not going to be able to adopt him.

His Mommy said that she was going to keep him inside until she could find him a forever home. On Thursday he wrote in his diary on Catster that his Mommy had found him a temporary home for the next 4 months. That was really good news as we felt so bad for not being able to give Frankie the forever home that he deserves.

We are still helping his Mommy to try and find him a forever home that is right for him. We are purring very hard that he will find his special home soon. His Mommy says that he has had a rough life being abandoned and now having feline leukemia. He really deserves a home where he can receive lots and lots of lovings.

Please pray for Frankie to find his forever home.

Love and Purrs,

Meet Mikki

I was an abandoned kitty. I was living outside in a vacant lot in Las Vegas. Let me tell you the desert is a hard place to live in. I was not doing so well when I noticed that my Mom to be had just moved in across the street from my lot. I went over to her patio door and started crying until she noticed me. She came out and brought me food and water. That was really nice since I was starving (like I said the desert is a hard place). She took me to the vet to have me all checked out and get my shots. The vet told Mom that I was about three years old at the time. After the vet gave me a clean bill of health Mom brought me home to meet my sister, Mea. I have been an indoor kitty ever since and I have to say it is much nicer in here. I don't care if I ever go outside again.

I am now 17 years old, soon to be 18 and I have adjusted well to my furever home. I will now let Dad pet me. I sleep above Mom's head at night on my own pillow. Every once in a while I sleep on Mom's head **hehe**.

I am definitely Head of Household at my place and no matter what my little sisters think, I have no intention of giving up that title. I can still tussle with the best of them and I have one mean growl. Mean enough to make them back away from me when I don't want them too close. Don't get me wrong, I really do love my brothers and sisters. I just don't like them to get too close. They are just a little to active for my taste.

I am going to go and hang out at the top of my scratching post now. Maybe I will even take a nap. Stay tuned for more about Meezer Madness.

Love and Purrs,

Meet Maui

Mom and Dad went to PetsMart to get litter, treats, etc. for my brothers and sisters. While standing in line to checkout Mom and Dad glanced over and saw me in a cage. The rest is history (adoption). Dad said Mom is banned from going to PetsMart. **hehe**

The rescue that had me said I came from an apartment that had 28 cats. I am very afraid of people. Mom and Dad are patiently working at gaining my trust. I am to the point where Mom and Dad can pet me while I am on the floor (sometimes) and every once in a while Mom can pick me up and hold me for a short time. I even purr for them when they pet me.

Must go so my typist can work on my sisters entries. Meow at ya soon.

Love and Purrs,

Meet Mimu

Our oldest furchild Mea crossed to the bridge in January 2009. My husband and I decided we wanted to get another kitten sometime in the future. Just out of the blue, I decided to check the classified listings of our local newspaper on-line and saw an ad for Siamese kittens. When my husband called to inquire about the kittens he was told that they had one female and they e-mailed him a photograph of her. It was love at first sight. We went to see her that night and brought her home to be part of our family.

I really love my big brother Milo. He is teaching me everything he knows and I have taught him how to carry around a ball. Miko still hisses at me a little and Mikki hisses at all of us. When Mikki hisses I talk back to her. I am definitely a talker. I talk to myself the whole time I am playing. I am still learning how to interact with humans as I was brought up in a cattery for 7 months. I am becoming more affectionate as time goes on.

It is a rainy day today so I am going to go and take a nap.

Love and Purrs,

Meet Milo

My Mom and Dad came to PetsMart to get litter for my brother and sisters (Miko, Mea, and Mikki). Dad went by the adoption center with Mom following. Mom spotted me and wanted to adopt me immediately. Mom and Dad talked it over and decided that they had room for one more kitty in the family. I went home with them then but was quarintined from the rest of the family for 21 days. I was very sick with a kitty cold and the vet said I could give it to my new brother and sisters so I had to take medicine and rest for the first three weeks of living with my new family.

While I was sick I stayed in the two upstairs bedrooms and either Mom or Dad always spent the night with me to make sure I was not alone and to have some bonding time. During this time, they were working on a name for me. Dad wanted my name to be Mellow because I was so calm. Little did he know that was just because I didn't feel good. Mom said that name reminded her of Mellow Yellow so they finally decided on Milo.

Once I felt better I was allowed to come out of the bedrooms and meet my new brother and sisters. My true personality came out and Dad knew Mellow really would not have worked. You see I am a very curious kitty. I like to go in the kitchen and open all the drawers. I tend to throw all the towels and dish clothes on the floor and every once in a while I do the same thing in Dad's bureau drawers. I also like to climb as high as I can get. One day Dad was taking a shower after work when he noticed a shadow in the room. He looked up to find me walking across the top of the shower door. I just wanted to see what he was doing. I have also set the motion detector for the alarm system off once because of my climbing. I won't do that again though. It scared me and it hurt my ears when the alarm went off.

I was two years old when Mom and Dad got me. I am four years old now. My family has changed a lot in the past 2 years. My sister Mea made her journey to the Rainbow Bridge on January 28, 2008. Mom and Dad adopted my sister Mimu on February 14, 2009 and my sister Maui on May 31, 2009.

I will let you go for now so our typist, Mom, can work on updating you on the rest of the meezers.

Love and Purrs,

Meet Miko

One day my Dad came to fix the cable where I lived. When he told my first Mom that I looked just like my sister Mea she asked if he wanted to adopt me. You see my first Mom was older and I have a habit of moving in and out between your legs when you are walking. She was afraid I was going to cause her to trip and fall. Well, Dad told her he would have to ask my new Mom about me.

Mom and Dad came back the next day to pick me up. They took me to the vet to get me all my shots and then brought me home to meet Mea and Mikki, my sisters. I was 6 months old and weighed 8 lbs at the time. I am now 6 1/2 years old and 15 lbs.

I am the shy guy in the family. If someone knocks on my door I run to hide behind the sofa. I might come out while they are visiting and I might not. I love to stare at the ice maker in the fridge waiting for the ice to come out. I will even reach up and try to see if any has dropped. I am a tall guy. I can actually stand up and put my front paws on the kitchen counters.

I must go and nap now. Will tell you more about me and the family later.

Love and Purrs,
