Update on Gypsy-

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Jenn- Bossinova's cat that I have had now for hmm-- awhile now! LOL I can't rightly remember when she arrived- is now fully integrated into the household. Some issues with hissing and spitting by Bailey and major confrontations (posturing and yowling) by her and Wink- but she now has full run of the house. She also is finding her way with Prowler- the new kitten,and Prowler is fearless and not letting her bully. I find it interesting that Gypsy is so territorial when she hasn't been here as long as the others. But if Mike and I keep calm, then the other cats stay calm and we have had no surprise vet visits-

Here is Gypsy:

Oh shes gorgeous!, love her markings!.

Sophie was exactly the same as Prowler when she was little by not letting Rosie bully her. They never really fought but when Sophie first came Rosie would give her the odd bop on the head, but Sophie would bop her back!

When i told the vet this when i took Sophie for her shots, the vet said that it was a good thing that Sophie was standing up to Rosie because it could go the other way where she could be bullied by her!.

MA, thanks so much for posting! I know that these last few weeks have been increasingly busy and stressful for you, and I appreciate you taking the time to post about Gypsy. I've been thinking about her a lot! I am so happy to hear that she's doing so well again. I was wondering how she'd do with Prowler (who is gorgeous, by the way). This is like a big weight off of my shoulders. I was getting really concerned for her. I didn't doubt you or your judgement for a moment, and when you mentioned her probably doing best in a single-cat home, I knew that you would do what you could but would know when she needed to move on. She's so pretty. I stumbled upon some pictures of Gypsy and Tank when they were kittens the other day. It's really tough for me to be kitty-less, but I also know that I couldn't have done anything better for either of them. I know she will find happiness in your home. It's funny to me that she's so territorial in a place still so new to her (it was two weeks on Saturday). Do you think that may be because she was a single cat for the last six months? Who knows, maybe that's just her.

Thanks again, MA. It's good to see her and hear she's doing well.

Also, I love the award you have there for making it through the downtime!

I am so happy! I found this enchanting photo of Gypsy. Remember? She is such a lovey that when we drove her down to MA's in Oregon she sunbathed on the dash above the speedometer at 70 mph with semi-trucks flying by and just looked at me.

I think so too! I will honestly say that my cell phone takes better photos at times than my digital. Thanks! And MA, which if the brood does Gypsy seem to favor most? I'd be very interested in hearing who she is aligning herself with...

Aww, look at that little princess! She hasn't attacked the tree yet, has she?...She loved our tree last year. The bottom branches were becoming stripped of needles, and we both thought it was Tank since he was the rowdier one. Come to discover it was her! I caught her red pawed on more than one occassion!

Jenn she is doing fine. She sleeps on the bed at night next to Mike, and her and prowler chase each other up and down the stairs she is losing weight. She vomits a lot though, lots of hairballs, so I have put her on hairball remedy which is helping. Her bloodwork at the vet came back with all normal bases, so any motor oil she ingested did not do her damage. She was recently dewormed and flea treated- fleas are bad here this year- but she is doing great. When Elizabeth was here, she commented on how settled Gypsy is in the house, so if you have any qualms call Eddie-

Good to hear she's fitting in well!!

Thanks, MA. No doubts, no worries, no qualms, just curiosity. I'm glad to hear she's happy. In fact, I don't think I could express how happy I am about that. That's all I've wanted for her and what I was hoping for. Thank you for taking this Princess and giving her the life she deserves. She got really lonely after we lost Tank. We would still hear her tearing around the house in the middle of the night, but it just wasn't the same after she lost her playmate. I'm happy to hear she has some new ones that she's really taken to. Although I still miss her (and probably always will in a sense), the heartache has dissipated. Positive news of her adjustment and happiness has put to rest my fears, doubts (of my actions, not yours ), and anxiety. She's a very, very special girl to me, and it makes me happy that she can be a special and important asset in someone else's life, as well. Thank you again for taking the time to give an update- it honestly means the world to me

Here you go Jen-













As I said, she is doing well. No hiding, no running from people or other cats, covers her waste, plays during the day with the others and is eating well and losing weight-
