Once upon a time not so long ago me was born to me Mum wif me Brother n some Sisters. We had a nice home n it was warm n cozy n Mum took great care of us n when we were old enuff we all were adopted to new homes wif two leggeds. It waz so nice to be luvved n have a place to call me own. Dere were sum tall 2 leggedz n a couple of short onez who played wif me. Toys n food n a nice bed were mine. Me felt so blessed fer a plain kitteh to have such a nice home. As me grew each month me got a bigger n more like a manKat. Then it happened one day that me waz no longer a kitten n me hit Pewbertee. Me did not know anyfing about diz or why me felt da way me did. Me almost felt like me had no control over me body! It waz pawful to say da leest. Fer some odd reeson me started to spray in da house. Me nott mean to do diz; it just happened no matter how much me tried NOTT to do it. Dere waz ALOT of talking n arguing frum the tall 2 leggeds n talk about being newtered n da cost of diz….Me learned dat if me had diz newterin done me wood nott want to spray n me wood be normal again n not try to run out the door lookin for a ladykat to date….me hoped n hoped me wood have diz done but it did not happen. Da day me thott me waz going fer da newterin me waz taken in da rolling box for a ride n to my horror n dismay me waz thrown out of da car down by a river. Now ya know how Katz are supposed to know how to find dere way home? Me tried butt me waz all terned around n me gott more lost. So me ended up alone n scared n lost n cold n hungree. Me haz no idea how long me haz bin outdoorz now but it haz bin a furry long time…at leest now it iz Spring almost Summer. I have leerned to hunt for birds n mice n chipmunks n moles fer food but it is nott easy n me feels badly fer eating dem. Dere are other stray katz here on da riverbank who tot me how to hunt n where to get water n where to sleep n where to stay dry when it rains. Me had chatted wif Midnite Milo a long time ago n he told me about diz 2 legged who gives propurr cat food n kibble n her kittygurl will sit n keep one companey….do ya reememburr him?He waz a great support to me when me ferst waz abandonned by da river. He tot me evereything I needed to know to survive outside. Sumtimez we wood sit n meow n we thottwe were brotherz. Now Milo haz moved on so me never did find out fur sure. Wifout him me wuud have died. He waz right dat da blondey 2 legged IZ a sweet n kind purrson n she feeds me 2 meals EVERY night n Nylablue sitz by da patio door n she meowz to me while me eatz. Da sad part is me is afraid of 2 leggedz now so when da nice one talkz to me, me runz away. Mind you, me does stop to lissen to her make kissey noisez n call me…at ferst me nott know who diz Hercule Purr-o waz she waz calling & then it came to me…diz iz what da 2 legged calls me. She nott know me waz named Max when me waz a kitten ..dat iz all right..me almost furgot that waz my name. Me likez me new name alot becuz me knowz da 2 legged likez me. She iz a guud 2 legged n Nylablue iz quite da Ladykat n she knowz alot of thingz n she likez to share her food becuz she spent time in da shadowz many yearz ago. Nylablue tellz me if me wood trust her 2 legged me could be cott n taken to a place called da Shelltur n have da newterin done bee placed in a new home….me will try butt me can not promise..me iz so scared of everything now…that iz the life of a Shadow kitty & it is not much of a life at all…Thank ya all fur readin me story n rememburr if ya see a stray kitty lurkin ind a shadowz please put some food n water n milk out becuz you cuud save a life dat night. Yer Shadow furend, Hercule Purr-o signin off fer now………

Hey dere Kwazy Katz: Diz iz ME day, me BERY speshell day: ME 8TH GOTCHA DAY!!! Da day me Life started fer reel!!!
Harken back to me sad beginninz. Me waz da kitt of a Siamese Mum n a Birman Poppa n me had lotz of fursibz. Befure me had a chance to leern anyfing me waz put in a cage n bred to boykatz…me had litter after litter….all me deer sweet kittz onlee wif me fer a while n den taken away….(Me now nose dey were sold to peeple n me hopez n purrayz dey all found guud homez). At 4 yeerz old me waz thrown out of whereber it waz me waz n wandered da streetz fer a few dayz n nitez…scarey place me can tell ya! A Hu’Man who saw me in dere yard scroungin fer food called Miss Renee n she came n swept me up n took me to da Sheltur….a noisy place butt dere waz a blankie n food n litter….so me settled in butt at da end of da day me waz taken away to another place (Renee’z sisfur) n dere waz a notty Spencer poochie n Macy da Siamese kitteh. Me smacked Spencer n put him in hiz place. Macy waz a lost kitteh followin me around butt me wanted to bee alone to fink about fingz. Not long after arrivin’ me had to haz another litter n me gott bery sick….so sick dat when me waz furinallee spayed, half me rotted teefiez were reemoved. Once me waz heeled no one had time fer me n when me started peein blood in urine me new diz waz “DA END” fer me.
What me did nott nose waz Miss Renee waz tryin to find me a new home n Miss Sherriellen waz lookin fer a kitteh just like me! As in a Siamese or a Birman; nott a ”sick as a poochie kitteh”! Anyway me waz put in a car n driven back into town to me new home. M. n R. brott me in; gave Mum sum kibble (me nott like) n a bit of litter from me old box n me n NUFFIN ELSE: no blankie; no toyz; no treetz; no food. When M. n R. left, Mum invited me up on couch to show me new dark blue blankie…me BERY OWN blankie!!! Beein after 6 pm da pet supply store waz closed so Mum had to dash to corner shop fer wet food n she gott me Fancey Feest. Da ferst nite we did meow a bit n me did play toyz n Mum told me about Mingflower n she just went to Summerland 3 monthz befur n she had left her toyz fer me! So a new chaptur in me sowwy Life started. Here iz me ferst piccie:Me had such purrty blue tintey furz but look at me mouth n cheekz cause me iz ackshully swollen!! Mum went da next day n got samplez of guud kibble fer me n she reealized sumfing waz wrong wif me teefiez n me urine. Dat ferst vet bizit did not go well; me lashed out at Dr Dave n he cuud nott treet me. So Mum gott Co-Enzyme 10 powder n started addin it to me foodz. Dat waz Aunti Anne’z idea..she iz so clever!! Now time moved on n me leerned to trust Dr. Dave n he waz able to diagnose Chronic Cystitis n help me get bettur wif hiz meddycashunz n da help of Dr Deb n her Accu-punkture…
Den in 2009 me had to hab da reemainin 11 rotted teefiez out n Dr Dave did surgery n Mum waz dere when me started to wake up! She haz been by me side thru it all n diz brott us closer together…it took a long time to reecover butt Mum helped me so much n once me gott stable me waz a happy kat!!!
So me haz nott alwayz bin sick…me waz fine fer da longest time…eben when me did gott da FHV (Herpes Virus). Mum added L-Lysine powdur in me food. Mum iz bery clever too. What me wanted to say iz dat eben wif sum challengez me Life wif Mum haz bin purrfect!! Me haz 7 bedz to chose frum n 2 blankiez n Minkie insertz fer me carrier n me Condo fer goin out on patio. Me haz so many toyz n lotz of nip n me treeshured TwinkleStar Pony frum Aunti Janet n Kittehz Blue fursibz:N me other ‘Pony’ Eesha Chinmaya me Ellyfant:Me haz wanted fer nuffin in da 8 yeerz me haz bin wif me Mum who iz like me BIG Sisfur to me!
