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

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


  1. Awww Madi you are loved. Such a lucky girl. You were darling as an itty bitty and you are a beautiful grown up girl!

  2. Oh what a beautiful letter. Bertie is familiar with the "but your predecessor never did THAT" line.
    Cheers! Gail.

  3. Hari OM
    Each is their own Self.... we are all glad of the self-dom of Madi-ness!!! blessings to you all, hugs and whiskeries, YAM-aunty xxx

  4. How very, very sweet. Have a super Saturday.
    Best wishes Molly

  5. I bow my head....and I'm deep impressed that you were just 3 months old, but a genius. To enter the fridge was a brilliant plan! Chapeau! It's an important job to make people happy and you are the one who can manage that a fabulous way!
    Easy Rider

  6. That is a lovely letter to you from your mum, Madi.

  7. You had me when you quoted Harrison Ford, he is my favorite actor.. this is a beautiful, touching and loving letter... your MOM is a very good writer. and i loved seeing you from day one. i have two favorite views of your pretty face, the upside down wide open mouth and the hide in the pillows on the bed. still smiling

  8. Oh Madi, we loved the picture of you in the fridge. We can tell your humans really adore you.

  9. Madi, you are so lucky to have such a great Mom. That was the most wonderful letter to you from Mom and Dad. We love all the quotes too. You all have a wonderful day.

  10. Lucky Madi! This is a testament to true love between a cat and her humans.

  11. OMC MADI.... this is a BEAUTIFUL letter to YOU and it captures EXACTLY who and what you ARE and are NOT... You ARE in control of your domain... you are NOT a follower... YOU are a LEADER. You ARE an ADVENTURER . You are NOT a Timid One.
    Madi... YOU are a ONE of a KIND and ARE Loved from tip of your tail to that CHARMING freckled nose of yours.... AND you are LUCKY to have chosen Excellent Parents.

  12. PeeS.... did you have any trouble teaching your mom how to use your blog?
    OUR mom asked us 87,000 questions... and we thought she was going to faint while writing OUR letters... Peeps are SOOOOOOO .... funny.
    We were terrified that SHE would Break somethingy... or that we would end up with MORE BUSTED Keys and stuffs.

  13. What a wonderful letter your Mama wrote for you Madi!! We are so proud to have known you since almost the beginning of our blog careers....
    Smiley Hugs!
    Dory and Mama(and the Boyz)

  14. Now that sweet letter and pictures is a keeper!

    Hugs, Laila, your LLS and Minchie, your BFF

  15. It's a good thing Madi and Jack don't live in the same house. Madi wouldn't have any boxes to play with once Jack got through with them.

  16. We love this post. Maybe you can give us some tips on how to get into the fridge. That would be valuable information! We loved the "when in doubt sleep it out" too. Wise words fur sure! You make a wonderful case for being owned by a cat. Well done Madi and Mom!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley
