haha Ai love the pic of the kitty in the toilet jenny! Sasha and Lacey again, thanks so much for everyones support here. I just got back and it's realllly hard to say. The kitty looks just like Tek, there is nothing about her that says it doesn't look like her. Nothing at all but something in me just feels like it's not her. The eyes on this kitty were bigger, and the face more mature. Damn it why didn't I know about microchipping when I had her!! Anyway, the vet seems to think it's not Tek because this kitty was 5.0 pounds and when I brought Tek in there last she was 4.5 pounds, and that was 3 months ago so they think Tek would be bigger. Also the couple says when they found this kitty it was still kitten sized. My cat was still a kitten but not tiny, just small. Like a very small adult, not yet full grown but not kitten sized. Anyway, the cat was pretty out of it and his pupils were dialiated so I couldn't hear her cry or anything and her eyes looked out of it so it was hard to tell. I really don't think it's her but I'm going again tonight with some pictures to tell for sure. I think the cat in the vet might have full white back feet and my kitty only had white on his back paws (just the tips, not the whole foot) so I'm going to double check again.
Thanks so much for the support. I'm still searching for my baby. I don't think I'll ever give up. I think I'm going to order post cards next and mail them out around my neighborhood so people at least know she's still missing. In the meantime I am falling in love with little napoleon. He is very small and maybe was given away too early because he tries to nurse on me.. he licks my lips and then starts sucking and his paws on each side.. he also climbs through my hair searching desperatley for a nipple on my neck (there is not one there!! =) The poor thing misses his momma it's so sad. So i just cuddle him and even though he does eat out of a bowl very good and he drinks ok (seems like he's still trying to figure it out) I have a little bottle and filled it with kitty milk and he lays with me and he laps it up. He seems very comforted after that. He had big trouble with pooping when he first got to me (sorry if this is gross), but the poor guy was crying out in terrible pain everytime he tried to go, and he couldn't. He was definitely having problems and there was somethign white in his little bum so i took him to the emergency room. They think it's probably kitty worms so they gave him medicine. He still seems uncomfortable when he goes, but he's going!
Anyway, I am growing very attached to him. Even though I'm not entirely sure if I'm ready, and I feel bad getting a new one so soon after my baby is gone, but I don't see it like that anymore. I see it as if Tek comes home, they will both have a brand new friend.. and just because I love this new little guy soooo much, it doesn't mean that I have moved on.. it just means I have more love to give. And he is certainly making me realize that I am ready to love again, since it seems to be so easy to love him and since I wasn't done loving Tek in the first place.
Besides, I was going to get Tek a buddy this summer anyway because I felt bad leaving him home alone while I was at work. Same goes for Napoleon now. So, if Tek doesn't come back, I am still going to get another kitten from her Mom's litter this summer if she has them. That way I have another new friend for Napolean and it will be a part of my little girl Tek.
thank you all for your love and support through out this entire ordeal. It has been very difficult and heart braking and I'm not sure how I would have made it through without you guys. I am still hoping that one day I can write you guys that email that I've been wanting to write since I found this site, that my baby is home. I'm sure we all are wanting to write an email like that, or else we wouldn't be on this site if we didn't have loss.
I'm so glad to have your support.
