Nope, but the presents she got kept her well distracted.

Ah, decoys. Well played.. biggrin.gif
Callidus Thorn
I got lucky.

She was so happy that I turned up early to spend more time with her, she actually had to be restrained by my Aunt when I got there laugh.gif

That kid's nuts rollinglaugh.gif

I think she sounds like a lot of fun tongue.gif
Callidus Thorn
She's adorable.

And immensely exhausting laugh.gif

But she likes you! That calls for a d´wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww moment! biggrin.gif
Callidus Thorn

Here's my former d'wwwwww cat:


IPB Image


The Bocephus Possom - If you said he couldn't do something, he damn sure would do it. In the winter time we would put throw rugs down in the kitchen, and he'd come flying in there and stop on them so they'd slide across the kitchen like a sled. He wouldn't quit till they were all bunched up against a wall and doing our feet no good, lol.

Possom died last December at nine years old - boy do I ever miss him still. That cat had more personality than any person. I still have his grandmother (age 15 years), his aunt, and uncle (litter-mates 12 years old).


mirocu
What an awesome cat! rollinglaugh.gif And such charm biggrin.gif

No wonder he´s missed. Nine years isn´t that much even for a cat.. kvleft.gif





Aaaand as per ush, I´m alone here kvright.gif
Callidus Thorn
Heh, cats have to have more personality than people do, lets them get away with more rollinglaugh.gif


Hey 'Rocu
mirocu
Hey, ´Orny! biggrin.gif
Callidus Thorn
'Orny?

Ornery might be more apt rollinglaugh.gif
mirocu
At least be grateful I excluded the H! rollinglaugh.gif rollinglaugh.gif
Callidus Thorn
I think its inclusion might have raised a few eyebrows rollinglaugh.gif

He was all of that, and as you said - died too young. He used up all of his nine lives the first few years of his life, the other six were just an extra blessing for us. What a cat!

He was too dignified to talk to humans by meowing like the other cats, but he understood everything you said to him and would prove it.

Every time one of the other cats went missing (usually his grandmother, she used to go off into the woods sometimes) I would tell Possom to find them, that I wouldn't feed till they were all there to get their share.

He'd take off looking purpose-full, and within an hour he would be scratching at the porch door with that cat by his side if they were alive.

If they weren't alive, he somehow knew it. His expression would change to look very serious like he was giving you the bad news, and he'd sit down and stare at you instead of going to look for them. That was his way of saying there was no need to go looking for that cat, (both times it happened the cat we were asking him to look for was dead).

If I caught a mouse in the house and tossed it out to the outside cats, Possom took it as a gift that needed to be reciprocated with a bigger gift. One time he left a rabbit as large as him on my doorstep, the next time he left a (gulp) large squirrel.

These cats are feral, but since we had to save his life so many times Possom ended up living inside our house numerous times to be treated medically. When he wasn't being treated we'd put him back outside with his kin, but every now and then he'd push past you when you opened the door and run inside just to show you he could come in if he wanted to. He'd lord around for a bit like a king surveying his subjects and then go back out to brag about his adventure to the rest of the cats. He was hilarious.

mirocu
I would have loved to meet that cat! laugh.gif Though seeing themselves as kings and humans as their subjects is something every cat does biggrin.gif


I think he brought you that squirrel just to keep you from rebelling against him... tongue.gif tongue.gif

Thank you! Yes, he does. He was so much more than the average cat! It is hard to tell how large he was in the picture, but he was the size of a small to medium dog - my son's friends were afraid of him, lol.

Heh, I used to have a cat like that, massive ginger thing he was. He used to lay on the windowsill, completely still, so that anyone walking past might see him and think he was like an ornament or something.

Then he'd move, and it never failed to make someone jump rollinglaugh.gif

He also used to shake my hand, never clawed me once doing so, and looked both ways before crossing the road.
mirocu
Your cat sounds awesome too, Callidus! biggrin.gif


Our former cat used to be like the Family Guy squirrel whenever a big dog went by... laugh.gif

The first cat I can remember didn´t bother looking right and left before he crossed the street... kvleft.gif

Yeah, Molle. Peace over his memory... kvleft.gif

He really couldn´t care less whenever a big German shepard (?) went by laugh.gif



Yes, if you don't mind me bringing it from the other thread, here is Molle laughing at the German Shepherd as it passes:

From all the things you've said about him, Molle had an awesome personality too! (It really shows in this pic of him).

All mine have had very distinctive personalities, some moreso than others though = Possom was one of these.

He was the best of the best.

Eight years before he actually died I had to race him to the emergency vet hospital because he was almost dead, we didn't know why or what happened to him. The staff at the hospital zeroed out his bill and just worked to save him without charging me, they fell in love with him.

When they finally decided that they couldn't save him, they offered to put him to sleep or I could bring him back home to die, I chose to bring him back home. Well, he lived another eight years from that animal ER visit; so I was really glad I made that choice.

They actually said they wouldn´t charge you? blink.gif blink.gif That speaks volumes in this capitalized world!


But what was wrong with him? If they couldn´t do anything to save him but yet he still recovered..?

They were sure he wouldn't survive it. His blood had no red blood cells, (feline luekemia).

They ran all kinds of tests on him, gave him an IV and antibiotics. When they saw the blood, they tested it twice to be sure they hadn't made a mistake - that is when they zeroed out my bill and and told me I wouldn't be charged for anything from that point on; and they offered to euthanize him without charge.

They ran some really expensive tests, too; both before and after that, I was never charged a thing for any of it. They even sent me home with bags of meds to give him for the next day or so till he died on his own - but he didn't die.

The meds they gave us seemed to save him, so I kept coming back to them and picking up more of those drugs till he pulled through it. They gave me the drugs no charge too, they were cheering him on - hoping he'd make it and beat the odds against him.

To me that spoke volumes about those veterinarians that they cared more about the animals than the dollars, you know? They had my respect and loyalty forever for that.

Those veterinarians sound like nothing I´ve heard of. Doing what they can, giving him meds despite the very low odds of survival, and not charging a single dime? Employees of the year, step forward! laugh.gif

Well, maybe not from the business point of view but who cares... biggrin.gif

Humanity is what it is, not employees. They cared about the animals more than the money they could have been making.

I've found it in three veterinarians, but never a human doctor - what does that say? Lol.

We think he may have had some Coon in him, but since he was born in the wild we never really knew. His mother was gorgeous and long haired just like his hair, but she was white with brownish markings. We never knew who his father was.

He was very large, though (for a cat).
