LETTER TO OUR GIRL


Dear Madi(son) D. Cat
It is I, mom, aka the old gray mare, your assistant,
writing a letter to you from your peeps.  

On May 11, 2002, little did we know life as we knew it would be
changed by a 2 month old itty bitty kitty with the heart of a lioness and vocal cords of an opera star.  We tried to follow
all the suggestions for introducing a new kitty to her home.
1. Confine to one room for the first few hours
Nope you weren't having that as soon as you were out of your carrier your quick as lightning legs took you out of the room and down the stairs.  From that moment
the house was yours and we were your staff.


During your first month here you continued to take charge finding
new and more exciting places to explore.  Your Dad and I realized we had our hands full with a furry ball of kitten...often we said SHE is nothing at all like our first cat.  You tried things
in your first month here that Milky-Way never tried in 14.5 years.
"The mathematical probability of a common cat doing exactly as it pleases is the one scientific absolute in the world!"
Lynn M. Osband
You grew quickly during your first year and our love for you grew quicker.


Dad and I learned to laugh out loud with you and at you
and all your craziness

You are Queen of Comfort and Sun Puddles

Thanks to your antics,I decided to start blogging in 2009...we have had the best time, met the nicest folks and OH little girl you have done so many amazing things.  Who would have thought a Feline Diva could be Mayor of Blogville...surely not me.
Your love of boxes became known all over Blogville.
Never, ever has there been a box too small, too large, too full,
 too scary.  
Oh what fun we had at your Going away Box Bash.

Madi, we  love you from the tip of your ears

to your mesmerizing green eyes, and adorable pink freckled nose

to the last hair on the tip of your tail

Madi, thank you for keeping us young, teaching us how to laugh at ourselves and most of all not to take anything too seriously.
When in doubt, sleep it out.
by Mom
Love, huggles (snuggles and hugs) to 
you from your Mom and Dad.
Now for a few of our favorite quotes about cats, all of which, apply to you.

Cats invented self-esteem
Erma Bombeck

Cats are endless opportunities for revelation
Leslie Kapp

A cat can purr its way out of anything
Donna McCrohan

My cat does not always talk as respectful to me, as I do to her
Colette

Finally for all pets who have found FUREVER Homes:

We all have big changes in our lives that are more or less a second chance.
Harrison Ford

Friday Funny

Mom bought some new socks....
from Clark's (on sale).  Did you know
their socks have a life time guarantee?


She thought it would be funny to put the label on my furs....
Once I was wearing superior softness label, which she says is a true statement about my furs. Evidently now my furs are made of
rayon from bamboo 


All is have to say is Mom you better sleep with one eye open!!

THURSDAY TALE: Someone got mail....

.....BUTT WHO?
THE OTHER DAY WHILE I WAS TAKING MY 3rd or 4th
nap....I was rudely awaken by the door bell...
it was NOT EARL* our mailman. 
(*my peeps used to think our mailman's name was Earl..but one week there was a substitute,
Dad asked him where is Earl?  The substitute replied, do your mean Tony?
The peeps said he didn't look  like a Tony so now they call him Not Earl)

I heard mom say look a package from Judge Frankie 
and Ernie the Attorney...so I sashayed into the room 
to see what they sent me!!!

Sometimes moms are sneaky so I stuck my nose in the box
anyway

I might have to share this gorgeous red t-shirt

I don't like movies but I  might like popcorn!!??
JUDGE FRANKIE AND ERNIE THE ATTORNEY I'M SUING MOM FOR
