Mickey Says Hi

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi y'all, my companion is Mickey, a very lovable but strange at times, cat.
15 years ago, I bought her mother, a halfbreed seal point Siamese at the age of 3 months. I was going to get her spayed, but the week before she was scheduled to see the vet, she got knocked up, or so I found out when the vet took a look at her before the operation. So I dutifully took on the role as father, and she had 7 kittens on my living room couch; I wasn't going to budge her.
Mickey was the runt of the litter, came so late that I was sure there were going to be just six of them, but she struggled out at the last minute.
Because her older brothers and sisters were bigger, she had a hard time getting any teat, so I would nudge them away for the first week or so to give her a chance. At a week old, she was still soooo small, just fit in the palm of my hand.
After her eyes opened, I would put her on my chest when I was in my recliner, (she still sleeps on my chest every night) and feed her from a doll baby bottle for a bit, then put her back with her mother when the others sacked out so she could get some more there.
I didn't have a lot of room in my house for all of them, so I gave the other six away, and kept Mickey and her mother.
I named her Mickey because when she was born, till about 3 months old, she had black ears and a white face, so reminded me of Mickey Mouse. Now she is pure white all over.
When Mickey was about 3 months old, her mother disappeared; I don't know what ever happened to her. I lived next to a large woods, and I let them roam whenever they wanted. Whether Tinuviel got in a fight with a wild cat or other varmint, or what ever, I don't know.
Sooo, for the past 14 years, it's been Mickey and me.
I have no idea who her father was, I never saw any Persians around the neighborhood, and don't know who her grandfather was either. In any case, she didn't retain any characteristics of her mother whatsoever; though Tinuviel was half Siamese, she looked pure Siamese. Mickey has no Siamese traits at all, it's rather strange; but I love her.

Welcome Mickey and Countryman

to TheCatSite and thank you for sharing Mickey's photo with us -- she is GORGEOUS and I do see Siamese in her, actually, in the conformations of her face -- and for loving her and Tinuviel, who also sounds lovely.

All 9 of us are rescued, indoor-only, spayed/neutered, and the lights in the life of our devoted servant, who's loved, lived with, rescued, and advoCATed for cats all her life. We're glad you found the forums, hope you enjoy them and will visit frequently! Thanks for sharing Mickey's story with us, too.
