Thank you all so much for your posts, your stories, your comfort, and most of all, your love.

I will get some pics of Musica (and her sister, Neysa, who left us 5 years ago) and put them on my home page.

I am here at home and at least Musica is being demanding as all get out. Her eyes are clear and she is queen of her realm.

God bless you all! You can't begin to know how much you all mean to me.

"I am here at home and at least Musica is being demanding as all get out. Her eyes are clear and she is queen of her realm."

That's just great. What a wonderful kitty girl she is! Love hearing that she's demanding and very much in charge.
Please pat her on the head for me. I look forward to seeing her pictures.

A real cutie pie you have there!

We have a female kittie (13) who looks exactly the same, identical markings. She's a real smart one.............. eats Purina dry, tunafish and cantaloupe.

I held and sang softly in the ear of my last cat her favorite song as they put her down when her kidneys failed.

I buried her and planted a Bradford Pear Tree over her that I bought at a local Garden Center.

Every Spring the tree has beautiful white blossoms.

Bumping Musica's thread.

humblegunner, what is it with red cats? Over the past 30 years that is almost all we have had. There seems to be a sign on our gate that Only Red Cats Need Apply ... LOL

Every time we turn up with another one our vet just shakes his head in disbelief. 3 years ago, when we took our newspapers to the regional shelter on our way to a dental appointment, I went in to see a "bumper crop of kittens". When I went through the door, a 6-year old 20 pound red tabby, in an isolation cage because he had just been dumped there, mewed softly, rolled over on his side and reached through the cage to try to touch me. We "bonded".

My husband later said that all I talked about for the next 50 miles was that cat.

Needless to say, we soon called the shelter and told them to hold "Tigger" for us until we could get back there. My good husband wanted to make me happy but said that another cat was "the worst idea [I] had come up with for quite a while". He went in to look at the cat for the first time, while I did the adoption paper work. He said that Tigger was sitting on a window shelf and was the saddest cat he had ever seen. When my husband went over and spoke to him, Tigger sat up like a prairie dog. My husband, the skeptic, was completely bowled over and fell in love.

Tigger went home with us that day and has been a much loved member of our family ever since. From an apprehensive cat, afraid of being hit again, he has blossomed into a frisky, comedian and is a much loved member of our family. At first, he could not believe that he he had come to a home where no one ever hits him and he can sleep on a bed if he wants to.

Who was luckier ... Tigger, or us ... that we teamed up? After 3 years, he is stable and happy, runs down the hall to me when I clap my hands; knocks on our door when he wants to come into the bedroom and knocks again when he wants to leave.

Shelters are full of terrific Tiggers who only need to be given a chance to love someone.

Tigger finally found his home! Good for him & y'all both!

When Edgrr was a baby, everyone thought he had alien writing on him.

His sisters came from the Houston ASPCA, they were the first ones
we looked at after Joe, Logan & Morrigan had passed away.

They were little babies and came to the glass of the cage and
said plain as day "Can we come home now?"

Awwwwwwwwwww...what a real sweetie!

I don't know how to post pictures, but if I did, I would post a couple of pictures of my daughter's two Scottish fold kitties. They'll never replace the beloved one she lost last year, but they are such a hoot and have brightened the lives of my daughter, s-i-l, and grandson.

We love and understand cats here .................... my wife and I took four of them (the little orange ones) who asked us to take them home.

They're still here.............. they own us.

Thanks for the pics of Musica. What a sweet kitty.

I bought a digicam a few months before our beloved Cammie died. I took beaucoup pictures, just about every day over those last months, and they have been an incredible comfort to us.

... the best decision you will ever make! We have been owned by some truly awesome red tabbies! There is just something different and special about an orange/red tabby.

[However, others feel the same way about other color kitties, as well ... maybe it is just CATS and how we bond with them.]

"Thanks -- she used to be quite a pillow-mongerer."

Cute. Our Elliott is the same. Usually sleeps on a flat pillow over my head. A practice he started when he was a young kit. Who cares that it means I have to scootch down in the bed? His comfort's the only thing that matters, right?
Said more prayers for Musica with our three cat boys this morning. As mentioned, I whisper them when the masked men are involved because it always makes them purr.

Please continue to keep us posted. As others have pointed out, you have a great deal of support here. Cat lovers understand. We really do.

That's hysterical. The expression on the pup's face is priceless. Looks like the dog's saying, "Show me where I signed up for this and do it now!"

I take it the two of them went on to be good buddies? Certainly looks that way.

Your Edgrr rules! What a great looking kit who has obviously grown up to be a happening cat.

There's something about cats named Edgar or Edgrr. We had three Edgar's over a period of many years. All three of ours were blue point Siamese with huge hearts and very big loving personalities. May be tempted to return to the name Edgar one day. Our current blue boy is Elliott. A name that suits him perfectly.

Please give my compliments to Edgrr. Seems clear he chose a great house to live in!
