I'm from Ontario

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Greetings I am from Brantford Ont, I work part time as a cab driver. I have had cats or some sort of pet ever since I can remember. My first cat who was my first was a long haired refugee from the winter who was aptly named Bones. He was a beautiful cat and as friendly as my current cat Oreo. I didn't have him more than a couple of months when he was hit by a truck, and I distinctly remember coming home from school and I found him under the kitchen window outside just shaking and shuddering, somehow he found the strength to drag himself home. He suffered some pretty severe injuries, broken leg, his eye had popped out beyond repair. Anyway, he was rushed to the vet, and the vet mentioned the " e" word to my dad, and he looked at me and said nope, let's fix him up. He got hit again 6 months later broke the same leg. So I named him Bones. Later he lost his tail to disease.

He was my buddy my pal, I don't think he ever grew up, he was nuts doing stuff like a kitten does. He died Sept 1 1994 and I still think about him and get a little emotional when I look at his picture.

Anyway I've been a cat owner for the last 28 years or so, so I have a wealth of experience but even I don't pretend to know everything.

That was such a sad tale Luckily I've never lost one of my furry buds. Well one, , but I like to think when see ventured away it was to some mysticail, magicial forrest (she did wonder off into the woods) that was only for kittys, , and there she would have all the catnip and mouseys she could handle I hope you enjoy surfing around all the forums. and again WELCOME Dali:blossom:

Sorry to hear about Bones. He was a beautiful cat. Welcome to the site. I'm pretty new, but I've found it's not too hard to jump into the conversations.

Hello Cabbie!

Welcome. Sorry to hear about Bones, but I'm glad he had such a good home. Even though I live in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, I visit Ontario every year. My friend and I love to go to Niagara-on-the-Lake.

I had to put Bones down at the age of 11 yrs. He developed CRF, he was in pretty bad shape near the end. I had him from 1983-1994
