You know Kali our friends are probably wondering where CowKitty is, cause we don’t talk about him anymore or have any pictures. So here is the scoop:
CowKitty’s parents moved at the end of July. CowKitty was so freaked out seeing all his furniture disappear….he took off and his parents couldn’t find him. They left food and water for him and one of their windows open. They never came back for 2 weeks. Needless to say, CowKitty was spending his time over here when he calmed down. He was scared of us like when he first moved here. Mom took some wet food out to him beside the house and he gobbled it up. He slowly started sitting on our bench and playing with mom. Mom decided to keep him and told dad who was a little more realistic. He told mom, CowKitty wasn’t our cat and we could get into trouble. Mom got into her stubborn mode and refused to budge. She stated her point that CowKitty was very happy here and us girls were getting used to him.
Dad went over to CowKitty’s parents and was upset by the condition the backyard was in…..total neglect. He decided CowKitty would be better off with us. So the next challenge would be to get him inside, CowKitty, not dad..he was still quite spooked. Lucky for mom Ellen of 15 and Meowing helped by giving her tips on what to do. Finally, mom pulled out CowKitty’s cheese with mice in it and he walked over to it in the house.
August the 18th was when CowKitty started to live with us. That night was horrible because CowKitty is used to running wild at any time of the night so he yelled his head off. Nobody got any sleep that first night. Next day mom and dad made up an area in the basement with the house from outside, water and dry crumble and a kitty litter tray. They were going to shut the door and have him stay in the basement until he got used to the arrangements. That night CowKitty went down to the basement of his own accord and slept in the house from outside. It was very difficult to keep CowKitty away from the windows as his old parents were popping over to see if we’d seen CowKitty. They gave us their new phone #. Thanks to Ellen we got a calming collar for CowKitty and he relaxed. Think mom and dad needed a calming collar too.
Then dad was bringing in veggies from my garden and CowKitty snuck outside and was gone. Mom was heart-sick. An hour later CowKitty was laying on the bench so mom opened the door and in he ran right to the tunnel.
Mom phoned and made an appointment for CowKitty at the vet to get checked over, shots and cut the fur back in his private areas. Meanwhile, CowKitty’s parents were asking us if we saw him…dad was shaking his head.
After being with us a week…CowKitty ran out when mom came in from the garden. He never came back. Mom looked and looked for him but no sign of him. The only thing we can think of is that his parents found him and took him to the new house. They must have wondered who put the calming collar on him.
This is our story of CowKitty. I looked for him for many days even going out on the deck and looking over to his old house. I’m afraid he is gone. We all feel sad and hope to see him one day.
As a side note, mom went to the SPCA…just in case CowKitty was captured by the Humane Society. Mom looked all through the cages and no CowKitty so mom left them with CowKitty’s description and they will call her if he shows up.
Athena, that wild and creative gal is having another Artsy Caturday and I decided to join in on the parade. Do pop by Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty blog and see what the artsy world has done to our friends. MOL A big hug and a thank you to Dezi and Raena’s mom from DeziWorld for making this picture possible.
Cow Kitty was over for a visit today. He slept out on the bench for a long time. Finally he came in and played with our cheese and mice.
After he rough housing with the cheese…knocked it across the dining room floor and then played in the tunnel, he wanted to go home. Cow Kitty very seldom talks but when mom let him out, he softly mewed at her. Then he headed toward his home.
What a cwappy day. The snow is coming down in buckets. Kali and I wandered out on the deck after brekkie and I think Cow Kitty zipped past heading for under the deck. It’s gotta be bad if Cow Kitty doesn’t want to be out in the snow.
Kali got all titivated up for her photo, set the timer like a pro and proceeded to clean her claws, muttering that she needed a manipeti.
The Cat On My Head is hosting Sunday Selfies so just blow over to their blog and enjoy seeing all my friends posing for their selfies. Unfortunately mom can’t seem to get the link for the selfies. The link is not showing up and neither are all the selfies and until they do, Kali will be sitting in Canadian Cats ONLY.
Kali, I can’t thank you enough for the pawty. Everyone seemed to have a super time. You really fooled me too. I really thought you and mom had forgotten all about my Gotcha Day. We wouldn’t do that Shoko….you should know us better than that by now. Ya, I guess Kali but its the way you said it…you played your part well.
Here are a few of the highlights.
Easy managed to tunnel all the way from France and scared everyone when he announced himself. In French of course. The hisses could be heard all over the block, hehe
Guess that stink was a fun game. Everyone wanted to play. Some of the stinks were pleasant like the tuna stink. The skunk stink paniced Nellie and she ran into Bacon while he was having some watermelon. What a mix up….Bacon was insulted because he thought Nellie was saying he stunk. I can still hear Bacon yelling out, “I have a bath every week you meezer, you!”
It was fantastic to see Pete Hartley and Tea. They are two very important members of the ThunderCat Patrol in Cat Scouts. In fact, I don’t know what I’d do without these wonderful dudes.
We are very fortunate that Pete H flies and was able to pick Tea up in Missouri on his way to the airport here.
hahaha Buddy just had to get in there and act like a doofus to empress you Kali. I think he really likes you! Oh I do hope so Shoko. I think he is terrific. What beautiful shiny grey fur he has. *sigh*
Einstein brought his whole family over to sing Happy Gotcha Day for me. What a cool family he has…Miss Fitz was so funny. She kept me in stitches with her stories! You can visit them at Timmy’s Commentary. Just click on the blog name. I believe they had a post celebrating my Gotcha Day.
There were so many highlights we just can’t get them all down here. Here are some more Gotcha Cards I got from my wonderful friends.
This lovely card is from Dharth…our awesome cuz. His blog is Purrince Sidharth’s Purrfect Pad
Thank you mom and Kali for all your work….this cat appreciates all your efforts. I must thank my friends for stopping by and making this Gotcha Day a memorable one.
