Hello, All! :] My baby's story.....

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
I am very glad to be a part of these forums. My name is Meagan, i just joined today.
I own 4 adult cats and a new litter of 7!
My four adult cats are Possum:


Zanzabar [not pictured]
And JJ.

JJ and Possum are sisters.
JJ has a story all her own. Her and her sister, Possum, were born from Kloie about 2 years ago. Possum came out fine, a beautiful tuxedo coat and perfectly healthy. JJ seemed fine at first, a tuxedo style coat of Gray and white, but her legs looked a little different. She was born with twisted limb syndrome.

A lot of people put down their kittens with this disorder, because it is scary to them and they feel like their cat will live a life of suffering. But i wouldn't have that. Her front legs are bent inwards at the "elbows", and her back legs are almost completely upside-down. With much patience, i taught her how to use the litter box, to move about freely, and now after 2 years, she is almost completely independent. She is the happiest and most friendly cat i've ever owned. She cant be outside by herself at night because of the coyotes we have in the woods, but i take her out often on nice days to visit with the outside cats and she loves it.

I think one reason i felt so obligated to her was not only my intense passion and love for animals, but also because i also have had a deformation. My jaw grew very out of place when i hit puberty, causing a major under bite/cross bite that made me lose weight [due to problems eating] and my self confidence was practically non existent. I was blessed enough to have a major re constructive surgery performed in 2003 which fixed the problem and now i look completely normal, and i'm at a healthy weight. This gave me such respect for people with even the smallest disabilities, and animals as well.

I am so very proud of her. She is my little angel and i hope and pray that people will have the love and patience to raise beautiful little angels like JJ and not be scared of deformation.

[her famous squirrel pose haha!]

I also own two feathered babies, Pom Pom and Pixie the Parakeets.

{Pom Pom is blue, Pixie is White]

Also, i have a tropical fish tank which i spend my free time perfecting. :] Its my ongoing project, and im almost completely done stocking it.

And of course, my mother has a poodle named Sam who thinks he's the kittens' dad. haha.

Here are a few more pictures for your viewing pleasure. :]

hope you like!

What a beautiful fur and feather family you have! JJ is lucky to have you, if only every special kitty could be so cared for and loved

I especially love the pictures of your budgies, I had budgies my entire life up until last year, and being a cat site we don't get that many pictures of birds so thank you for showing them off. They have beautiful colour plumage and you just have to love those little cheeky budgie faces

Thanks for all the warm welcomes! I greatly appriciate it.
I also wish there were more people willing to work with disabled animals and give them a chance at life... I was so blessed to be matched with JJ, she is such a joy. I will definitely post some more pictures of the babies as they grow on the Pictures thread. Thanks again guys!!!

Kittens are so much fun... just watching them grow and how curious they get. Its so adorable! Its almost like going on a little adventure yourself, when you watch them stalk a cricket and clumsily sneak around and pounce on their brothers and sisters. Its so cute!

Welcome to you all!

We hope you'll really enjoy the forums here and we thank you for loving animals, for adopting multiple cats, and for believing in JJ, who is adorable!

We hope all of the kittens are healthy and that all of them have loving, forever homes (and, may we kindly suggest, that you consider spaying Mom? It is the kind thing to do, as millions of sweet, loving cats and kittens lose their lives annually just because there are not enough good homes for them, and every kitten born just increases this situation...)

Your pictures are all wonderful, and if I may say, you look beautiful! I'm so glad you have been able to come through your own personal challenges to happiness and triumph. No one on this earth is perfect, but we can all be our personal best -- and I am one who believes this starts on the INSIDE with kindness and compassion and understanding, and shows on the outside!
