These five babes belong to Luanne from http://rustydawgpetproducts.com. Four are in their senior years. I asked each kitty to share a bit about themselves and their home.
Here are their stories.
Spencer is a 22 year old Flame Point Himalayan
"It's all in the mind. You're as young as you feel and even though I have a heart condition and take a daily pill , I make it a point to run and play every day. Can't let those younger seniors think I'm no fun anymore! I choose not to focus on those 13 years before my mom adopted me when my tummy hurt a lot and I was always afraid. But my new mom figured it out and now I thrive on RAW food! I LOVE it! I have the energy of a middle aged man and live a grateful life of love and luxury!"
Maxxy is an 18 Year Old Smokey Grey Cat
"Most definitely, the best day of my life was when I was 8 years old. I had been living in a cage in a pet store for a loooong time. At first I used to perk up every time someone stepped into the shop. I mewed and watched each human intently. Many came through those doors, but few took a second look into my cage. Very disheartening. I decided to quit getting my hopes up and retreated into my own little world of aloneness. One day, however, a lady came in and stayed at my cage for quite a while. My heart felt a little twinge, but I quickly rebuked it and l tried to go back into my world. Then she left. But she came back. And this time it was for ME!!!
These last 10 years have been a dream. I have a human mom and four other adopted siblings to play with and love. I have lost some weight recently and Mom is a bit concerned, but I am still her sweet boy."
Hemi is a 15 Year Old Seal Point Himalayan
"I suppose I will be honest and tell an embarrassing story. I really was not responsible for this, but...well...you'll see.
About 10 years ago I was living with a human who paid almost no attention to me. That's probably why I ate so much fur. It's akin to nail biting for humans...just a way of passing the time. The fur collected in my tummy to the point where I could no longer use the litter box. I tried, but nothing came out. It hurt a lot. Then a kitten appeared at the human's house and he almost completely ignored me. One day I heard that dreaded word that starts with Eu. I was terrified. Thankfully a friend of the human took me away and brought me to a really nice lady. She took me to the kitty doctor. I had kitty enemas. I kid you not....it was NOT fun! And the worst part was that they didn't even work....well...not until much later when I was in my mom's bedroom. Pee-U!! I couldn't help it! It all exploded. But OHHH...what relief! Any human who still loves a cat after that is worth keeping! She grooms me, tells me how sweet and patient I am and in return, I keep the rest of my siblings in line!"
