How Vets And Animal Care System Failed Kitty Putting Her Life At Risk

Back in January, Kitty was diagnosed with chronic triaditis from an ultrasound – which could not be confirmed without a biopsy. She had been doing good for months with the changes I made for her health and diet, as had infrequent episodes which were managed.

Then the pandemic came and there were shutdowns around. We were being told to stay home as much as possible, to control the spread of the coronavirus, which meant a new way of doing things – even going to the vet.

This was fine by me because I had sweet Kitty for company and my focus was keeping her healthy. In times like these, I especially appreciated having Kitty with me.

Then late May she had a vomiting episode. These

10 Years Ago Today A Lost Scared Cat Was Miraculously Found

2016-11-29-13-54-48Today is a special day for Kitty. Ten years ago, she was found by good samaritans, severely injured in their yard, after being lost miles away from home for over 3 months. They immediately took her to a nearby animal hospital which saved her life and, thanks to a microchip, reunited her with her owner. Where she was found was only a few doors away from home, that’s how close and amazing her journey was, considering she was lost on the other side of the river and on top was a timid, scaredy cat. She bravely survived in finding her way home, with a near-fatal injury, as she clung to life. A miracle that happened less than a month before Christmas, during a week with especially freezing

When Hope Is All You Have – Kitty’s Miracle Story

img_20161101_112245Where has the time gone? It’s already the 10th anniversary coming up, at the end of November, since the day Kitty was found by good samaritans, after being lost for over 3 months. I am so thankful that they saved her life by immediately taking her to an animal hospital. I have been making plans for her for this special day, including announcing a project that has been in the works for sometime now, but recently there’s been a big damper over the joyful occasion due to a major conflict with my sister, making it a very stressful and difficult time for me.

I removed Kitty from my sister’s home a couple weeks ago, as was the final straw, and she is now living with me.

Kitty Sure Is A Tough Toy Tester

I think if cat toy companies used Kitty as a toy tester, then they would really know for sure if their toy was a big hit or not. You can get her attention at first but she may lose interest fast if she doesn’t really enjoy it.

Here is a video of her with one that is usually popular with cats:

She did eventually play with it a little but lost interest soon enough. Maybe it’s an age thing, where the younger cats would have more fun with it or just laziness on Kitty’s part as rather do some birdwatching or something along those lines.

I wonder if she might like the Angry Birds game.

Oh well, I guess just have to try one by one, until find the right toy she really likes.

What Kind Of Trip Would Be Suitable For Kitty If Were To Take One

After reading in the paper about some sailor guy going to take a solo trip around the world, in his sail boat, it got me thinking. Why would anyone want to take such a risky trip, in the middle of the ocean, in a tiny sailboat and never leaving the water, for any stopovers, the whole time?

I imagined Kitty and I on a boat like that and quickly decided it was a no go for a number of obvious reasons. She doesn’t like water and that would look like the biggest, endless, rippling bathtub she ever seen, not to mention the stormy weather with all the flash and noise, that we would surely face, would frighten her considerably, me too. And if both can’t swim who could save each other

Kitty Trying Some Organic Greens – Find Out If It Was A Hit Or Miss

2016-08-26-22-05-49i have attempted numerous times with various fresh raw vegetables suitable for cats, like broccoli, to see if Kitty might like it. She sniffs at it and then turns her nose, walks away. That is the extent of her vegetable eating attempts . So thankfully in her dry cat food, some vegetables and fruits are processed in it and she loves her natural dry food.

Most cats though do take to grass, and I have caught her nibbling on a plant before. Since she is a finicky eater, I don’t worry that she will eat something wrong not good for her, because she herself won’t.

While I was in the pet store, buying litter, they had a special where, with the purchase of the litter brand I use for

Keeping Kitty Healthy With A Natural Holistic Diet

cat-bowl-1322784Kitty, since she was little, never took to wet food. She would starve than eat it. Probably it’s due to that it doesn’t stay fresh and spoils easily, not to mention can give a bad smell too. Maybe she didn’t like the texture either. She likes dry food and always has.

A lot of the commercial brands have unnecessary fillers and ingredients that isn’t needed in a cat’s diet. The first ingredient should always be real meat and what it should contain the most of. A couple years ago, she was gaining a bit of weight and getting sluggish. The dry food brand she was on wasn’t really doing her the good, as it should have, because she was consuming more to get

Kitty Finds Her Way Home – How This Scaredy Cat Found Her Home From A Distance Away

IMG_20160809_115112When Kitty was lost, she had a disadvantage because she is a scaredy type of cat who doesn’t go to strangers and would likely hide. In this case, she wasn’t going to be easily found to take to a shelter or an animal hospital in order to identify and reunite her with her owner.

She was lost in an area that she had never been before, miles away from home, as never ventured past the front or backyard of her home, and it was on the other side of the river where a bridge had to be crossed or a long way around over freeways with bridges to the city center, which all directions were very noisy with a lot of traffic around.

Prior to the new owner taking her to the new residence, she

Who Needs To Be A Scaredy Cat When You Can Do This…

Kitty sure is funny, if the doorbell rings or any strangers come around, she is the first one to run and hide in her catcave under the stairs or one of her other hiding spots. Jumps at any little unexpected noise too…a true scaredy  cat that’s for sure.  Usually she lets out a cute yawn but when it’s time for the big yawn to come, this is how she looks. Could scare anyone and their dog away…lol.

Maybe should blow up this pic and display in the window as a burglar deterent and have a loud speaker that lets out a roar too…that should do it.

Hello From Kitty – Meow Everyone!

My name is Kitty. I admit I’m a bit of a scaredy cat but I got a little braver after survivng the frightening ordeal I went through when I was lost, injured and near death. What happened was, I was at a really mean cat’s place who made me feel very unwelcome. I got really scared and just wanted to go home so ran away from there.

That cat’s owner had put a collar on me even though I was microchipped. It was very uncomfortable so I tried to take it off and it got stuck, digging into my armpit.

It took some time to find my way home, over 3 months I believe. I didn’t know where it was since I didn’t venture out that way before, only been in my yard, but
