I can't wait to hear the outcome with hubby. Tell him all the ladies of TCS will love him forever if he says she can stay
What a great idea! We should have a TCS DH Wall of Honour for all the Hubbies who let kitties stay!

ETA: and we can pip them (add stars after their name) for each additional kitty.

Who's with me?

Poor little thing I bet some rude person didn't want it and dropped it off.
My dad use to do that when I was a kid. One of our cats he was taking to the shelter and he tried to say he changed his mind (yeah right) he went to the store and from what he said it just jumped out of the car and ran away. Yeah right I am sorry but that cat would not have been that hard to catch.
We had hamsters once and he got sick of them or something and took them to the woods and droped them off. Our animals always came up missing so I am sure he did it more than once. It makes me sooooooooooooo mad that people do that sort of thing.
Im glad I am grown now and can have pets of my own and not worry about them coming up missing one day.

Great and little gods. I am so sorry that this happened - to you and to those little lives.

ETA: maybe you could post a tribute in Rainbow bridge? It would allow you to remember and honour them.

It is sooo nice of you to bring in that kitty.
post #69 of 89
Well, she's won over the hubby. Now we work on Garfield. Susan has offered extra treats. Ari says he can contribute a live mouse.

He truly is a beautiful cat.......thanks so much for saving him!

Excellent! What an adorable face! I just love her coloring! I'm so glad you were there to find her!!!

Oh, my husband gets two stars on the TCS wall. The first one he brought home himself after almost running over her. (Chaos) The second one, when I called and told him about her he said "Why don't you just bring her home now and skip all the beating around the bush." (Kyrie)

She is BEAUTIFUL! Good luck with Garfield!

Oh and Oscar does the tail swish thing. It's funny AND cute!

How sweet!

Still, that's only 1 star - first kitty gets your name on the wall - after that it's pips (stars).

ETA: Please, mods, can we have this?

Im not sure if it is because when I got him, he was on his death bed and I nursed him back to health (I have always been VERY close to him beause of what we went through with him being sick) or just because he is a spoiled little mommas boy.... but my friend brought over a kitty she rescued the other day (she brought him over because she said he was an exact copy of Garfield just smaller) anyways, he saw me petting this kitten and he literally freaked out!!! he has never acted this way before!! I went over to calm him down and he pushed my hand away with his paw!! I again tried to comfort him and he scratched and bit me!!! He wasnt himself again until the cat left. Even my husband was in awe!!! We could not believe the way he acted.
That day he needed more than some treats ....

Isn't it just the cutest thing you have ever seen?!?! When I 1st saw her tail doing that.. I thought "what in the world"!!!
But now that I know it is normal for some cats... I'm not worried about it.

You know, I was going to (selflessly ) offer to take Garfield off of your hands, but after reading this, I'm no so sure!

You did a wonderful thing for this little one! She is so beautiful. You may want to check back in the parking lot, sometimes people will drop them off in places like that. I have several from the Walmart parking lot. Two of them were stuffed into a box and dropped off there.They made it out of the box and I found one near the box where I had heard meowing. I only thought there was one and took him home and the next day went to walmart and heard mewing and another one was in the bottom of a trailer they kept on the edge of the parking lot scared to death. They are both identical black cats. They are almost a year old now. If there are more they may run and hide at the edge of the parking lot if there is anything to hide in. I also have a buff colored polydactyl cat that I picked up when he was a tiny little guy from there. Your kitten is so lucky you came along! It will take some time but your other cat will get used to her. I've been through that a few times too.

You've just described Garfield the way Rosie was when i first brought Sophie home Rosie growled and ran straight up to her room when she first saw tiny Sophie, so i left Sophie downstairs and went up to Rosie and sat with her talking softly to her.

I reached out my hand for her to sniff and she batted my hand with her paw and growled at me. I always describe it as her way of saying " I hate you!!!! "

You've probably seen this already but this was them two weeks later

Rosiemac, everytime I see your sig I just want to pick up Rosie and give her such snuggles and kisses!

ok almost totally OT but i have never heard the term "pips" for stars next to someone's names, and i have to ask, did Gladys Knight and the Four Pips mean, her and for (other) stars

or did people come up with the name for stars because of her use of the word "pips"

i remember we used to try to guess where she got the term PIPS from....

anyone know?

I think Garfield will accept the new kitten in time. Just be sure she is utd on her shots first! Festie is still hissing at my foster babies, yet she watches them all the time!

I like the idea of pips or stars for the hubbies...I put mine in under my name! But my dh would not see more pips as a good thing! Last Saturday at the adoption show where I was trying to adopt out 3 kittens, ds wanted to get a kitten. After all, he reasoned, none of the pets at home are "his". Then he saw the lizards! DH said he would rather get a lizard than another cat!

How come the only thing I ever find in the Wal-mart parking lot is gum on the bottom of my shoe? She is absolutely adorable! Ya know, I'm in St. Louis. How far away from me are you?

P.S. Don't tell the Hubby (my hubby) I asked.

I was using the military term.

I'm not sure if this is the case with all awards or only with some, but for your first award, you put a ribbon on your uniform, and if you're awarded a second time you get a star. If you get enough stars (5 I think), there are converted into one star of a different colour. Presumably this is so you're uniform doesn't get too crowded.

OH!! thanks for that information! now i wonder if that is what Gladys Knight had in mind when she called her back up singers "pips" LOL
