Jewel's Journey

Dilute tortoiseshell kitty by a sliding glass door
Jewel really enjoyed laying by the sliding glass door at her former owner's home, and she also liked spending time outside.  When we moved into Jewel's former owner's home as housemates, it was Spring.  The house had no air conditioning, so we often had the sliding glass door open.

Jewel, being the intelligent cat she is, figured out that she could open the screen door with her paw and let herself out.  She did this quite often, and once Carmine and Milita followed her outside (they are strictly indoor cats).  After that incident, I had to block the screen door so that Jewel couldn't let anyone, including herself, outside.

My Jewel sure was smart, and she definitely knew how to get what she wanted!

What kinds of mischief do you get into at your house?

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday

Gray, lynx-point Siamese cat
Milita is on my bed, trying to stay warm in this cold spell we are having in Colorado.  Yesterday, the temperature was only in the 40s, and today, the predicted high is 54.  We've been getting a ton of rain (and a little snow), too.  I can't believe it is the middle of May and still this cold out.

How's the weather treating you?

Opt to Adopt Mel


Angels with Paws
Lakewood, CO

This handsome orange and white mancat is seeking a safe loving place to call home.  According to his profile, Mel is a very sweet cat who loves and craves attention.  He loves being pet, getting head scratches, and being brushed.  He also loves playing.  

Mel is nine years old.  He is listed as a special needs cat because he has a nervous habit of overgrooming himself.  He is getting better about that, though.  

In his former home, Mel was repeatedly attacked by another cat.  Thus, Mel would do best in a home where he is either the only cat or with other docile cats who won't try to dominate or attack him.  Angels with Paws isn't sure how he would get along with children or dogs, but they think a home with calm, cat-friendly, older children or a cat-friendly dog who will leave him alone may be okay.  Mel would really like to find a safe and loving home.  

Please call Angels with Paws at 303-274-2264 for more information or visit with Mel at the shelter, located at 2540 Youngfield St. in Lakewood, CO.  


I have some great news to share with you!  According to Angels with Paws' Facebook page, Felix has been adopted!  Congratulations, Felix!  I hope you are enjoying your new home.

Mancat Monday

Hi everyone, it's Carmine here today.  Mes is hanging out in my box bed today.  The human put a fleece blanket in it for me, and now mes loves my box bed even more!

Do you know what the Mom told mes the other day?  Hers is going to have an "animal communicator" talk to Milita.  The Mom says Lita is doing so much better than hers was, but hers is still drinking a ton of water (for several months now) - much more than hers ever did in the past, and the Mom says something still doesn't feel quite right with Lita, but the Mom cannot figure out what it is.

Don't worry.  Lita went to Dr. Stabby a couple of months ago and got hers bloods stolen.  All of her tests for kidney disease, thyroid disease, and diabetes came back normal.

The Mom hopes Lita will tell the animal communicator what, if anything, is bugging hers so the Mom can help.  Mes is sure the Mom will tell you all about what Lita has to say after the session.

Have you ever used an animal communicator?  What was your experience like?

Jewel's Journey

Sunday was Mother's Day, and we hope all of our mom friends had a wonderful day.

Did you know that Jewel was a mom?  Her former owner told me that Jewel had one litter of kittens before she was spayed.  He said that she had two white kittens!  Someday, I'd like to learn more about how genetics influence a cat's coloring - it fascinates me that two completely white kittens came from Jewel.

When I asked how Jewel was with her little kittens, her former owner told me that she "tolerated them."  Even if she just tolerated them, I bet she was a good mom.

I've been struggling a lot with my grief over Jewel the past few weeks.  What I wouldn't do to have just one more day with my sweet angel.
