Love when you least expect it…

Published October 27, 2012 by NylabluesMum

Hello Friends: Sherri-Ellen here….NYLABLUE gave me ‘purrmission’ to do a blog for a change, hahaha!! I thought it would be nice to bring everyone up to date on Shalimar & his new Shelter friends.

I went to visit Shalimar & my 2nd rescue cat Serenia yesterday. Shalimar started to ‘tippytoe’ dance as soon as he heard my voice!!! I went into the room where the cages are & there he was meowing & dancing!!! He rubbed my hand thru the bars & kissed me numerous times which made my day!!! I then checked on my 2nd rescue Serenia:She had to be operated on & it was discovered she was already spayed which really has confused all of us! If she was a used up breeder we could understand her being dumped behind the pet food store. However she was spayed so why wasn’t she posted on Kijiji or taken to the Humane Society who run a no-kill shelter for cats & dogs who need to be rehomed or brought to the local Shelter?? None of it makes sense!!! Poor Serenia was dazed from sedation but she did rub the cage bars when I spoke to her…..then I met Seal:another dumped kitty; a Siamese/Torti mix who had to be spayed…she was groggy also but oh so cute!!! I could not touch the sedated cats so just spoke quietly to both of the girls to reassure them…….& then there is KENNY G.!!! Oh my CAT!! This boy has a voice like a feline Pavarotti…..No one could figure out his heritage; so I spent some time with him & discoverd he is Burmese!!! Kenny G. is dark auburn brown with shimmering fur & those green eyes & the VOICE!!! The operators were thrilled I figured out what breed Kenny G is & so was I!! He told me all about being there & watching over Shalimar for me….before I knew it the hour was done & my ride had returned. So I said Goodbye to all the lovely 4 leggeds there & placed a kissed finger thru the bars on Shalimar. He kissed me back & meowed “Goodbye”.

Altho’ I had a wonderful time with Shalimar & his friends I came home & cried. I have bonded with Shalimar after 2 1/2 months of caring for him so must ‘let go’ of him now emotionally….I get attached to a certain degree when I do rescue however my rescues usually last between 4-7 days so I don’t get as attached. So I am in ‘Shalimar withdrawal’ right along with Nylablue who looks out the patio door every night hoping to catch a glimpse of her friend…Who would have thought an tabby cat of dubious heritage would have found a way into our hearts?? Love happens when you least expect it!!! So now Nylablue & I have quiet nights talking about Shalimar & hoping he & his friends all find their ‘fur-ever’ homes soon.  They are ‘pawsome’ cats & I am blessed to have rescued 2 of them & met the others who I will carry in my heart & mind for the rest of my Life……

Hey dere Katz: It’z me again: da Nylablue! Me Mum sayz me could tell all of you about Shall-e-mar, so here goez:

Yesterday da Mum went wif a fur-end to get the live trap. She came home bery wound up…me finkz too much coffee, yow, yow. Before it got dark she put food in the trap n set it n came in n she sat frettin’ for ober an hour!! Me curled up on her lap to keep her calm. Not too long after it got dark Shall-e-mar appeared sniffin around the trap. Mum went out to entice her into trap….Shalley’s shoulder kept hittin the side of the trap & set it off n scared her silly!!  Shall-e-mar waz too tall fer da trap!!!!Mum came in to get more food n she asked me “What do we do about Shall-e-mar?” Me said, “Eeoww, eeoww, yow!!” Diz Hu’man can speak CAT; she looked at me n said, “Great idea Sweet Feet!” n out she went again. She put the food down n opened up my silver condo n after Shalley ate some she quickly picked her up n put her with the food into the condo. TA-DA!! We got her!!!

Mum sat outside wif  Shall-e-mar tellin her about the Shelter n how she would find a gud home n how me waz there before. Shall-e-mar calmed down as Mum talked to her..Mum iz pawsome!!!!!!!!!

Aunti Renee from the local Animal Shelter came to pic up Shall-e-mar n say ‘Hello’ to me. She was so happy to see me sittin on top of the stereo oberseeing da capture. Aunti Renee was laughin when she saw da empty live trap n Shall-e-mar sitti in me condo!!! Da bylaw sayz katz should be in da trap but az it waz me Mum Aunti made an exsepshun! Fankz Aunti!

Aunti Renee & Uncle Todd came by wif da condo this afternoon n bizited wif me for a few minutez. Me alwayz likez to see dem! Dey & me Mum saved me Life; dat iz a story fer another time….

N there iz somefing else dat is bery funny: Shall-e-mar iz a B-O-Y!!! A neutered boy. Yow, yow!! Fer da first time me Mum waz wrong finking Shall-e-mar waz a girl!!! Me iz rollin about on da couch wif kitty laughter!! Jokez on me!!! Me thought so too….
