I would like to write about Daisy Mae’s kittyhood: Part 2. If you you’re thinking that you need a part 1 to have a part 2 then you would be right. If you’re asking yourself, when did you write part 1. It was on January 30, 2017 when I wrote part 1 of Daisy Mae’s kittyhood. The Title of Daisy Mae’s Kittyhood: Part 1 is called TIGGER AND DAISY MAE.
Daisy Mae is in the second part of her kittyhood now. Daisy Mae is almost 11 years old now and boy has she grown. She’s an indoor cat and queen of the household. Daisy Mae is a cat who is loved and spoiled rotten. My late grandmother always said there is spoiled good and spoiled bad and your spoiled good. Of course she was talking about children. But it works for cats too. Spoiled good means you do not get everything handed to you or get everything you want and spoiled bad means that you get everything handed to you and/or everything you want. Daisy Mae doesn’t get everything she wants but she thinks should. Then what cat doesn’t.
Daisy Mae’s kittyhood has been filled by playing string or pole, sleeping in the sunbeams, finding her favorite spots and sleeping some more. She really likes conning her dad into giving her treats instead of getting them herself. She also likes exploring. Like I said, she’s a spoiled cat. But that’s OK. I wouldn’t have it any other way. We even bought a decoration to hang on the wall that says: A Spoiled Rotten Cat Lives Here.
Daisy Mae is really like most cats even though she’s an indoor cat exclusively. She still has the urge to explore, the urge to go outside especially on nice days.
In Daisy Mae’s younger days when she was smaller and skinnier, she was able to go places in our house you would never imagine she would go. For example, one time she went exploring in our basement and went into a hole she found. However there was just one problem, she was able to go into the hole in the wall but couldn’t get turned around to escape. What did she do? She meowed at the top of her lungs and was happy when Daddy helped her escape. Come to think of it, Daisy Mae’s Daddy helped her escape from a lot of situations she got into.
Daisy Mae is Spayed. Spaying and Neutering is a subject I think should be mentioned because if it isn’t and people ignore the subject, we will have unwanted cats that aren’t taken care but left to run or worse they’re abandoned.
Cats that are left to run or if they’re abandoned, will eventually find a male cat, have sex then have kittens. Kittens are cute but when you need to find a home for kittens that you need to find a home for, it isn’t easy. You would think these places that say they will take kittens in an emergency would take them with no problem. I can tell you from experience this isn’t true. We called several places and they refused us or they would say if you pay this you can drop them off. My neighbor ran into the same problem. My Dad took care of our problem by taking them somewhere else. However, the result of my neighbor’s problem didn’t end happy sad to say. The same mean dogs that bit me killed all of the kittens. If the animal places would’ve just taken the kittens in this might not of happened.
Spaying and Neutering in my opinion is something that pet owners should do. In not only helps the owner but helps keep the pet population down which is what we need to do.
I hope it will be a while before I have to write part 3 of Daisy Mae’s Kittyhood. It won’t be easy to write.
The following are some pictures of Daisy Mae’s Kittyhood:
Hello everyone, I would like to share a story about my rescue cats Tigger and Daisy Mae. You see right before we rescued Tigger, we had another rescue kitten that died after a week because the previous owners flea dipped her to early. We eventually rescued another cat and her name was Tigger. Tigger was a rescue cat that we got from a friend of mine at work. I know you’re probably thinking how is your cat a rescue cat if you got her from a friend at work. The following are some reasons that make Tigger a rescue cat and they are: 1. My friend had so many cats that not all the cats got treated equally, 2. Tigger was the runt of the litter so she didn’t get treated as good as the other cats and 3. If you would’ve heard some of the things the previous owner did, you would have rescued her too. In fact, some of the things the previous owner did could have been considered abuse in some instances. When my family brought Tigger home, she was scared to death of all of us and even ran and hid from us. When I came home from work, I found her in my bedroom closet. She eventually warmed up to Mom and I and it took a little bit longer for Dad. However, in Tigger’s old age she couldn’t get around as good as she used to and that’s about the time Daisy Mae came into the picture. The following is the story of how we found or rescued Daisy Mae. One night when I came home from work, I could hear something. As it turned out, it was a cute and adorable little kitty cat with good lungs.We estimated that the little kitty cat we found or rescued was about 4 weeks old. Of course my family and I fed her and put her in a nice warm bed in the garage and eventually brought her into the house. We did get to see the mother cat who kept coming around after she dropped her kitten off at our place. We always thought the mother cat wanted to make sure her kitten was going to be taken care and when she realized her kitten was going to be taken care of, the mother cat stopped coming around. A few days later we had my nephew’s 4th birthday party and we let my nieces and nephew name the kitten. The nieces and nephew decided to name the kitten Daisy Mae. My sister and brother-in-law gave us a cage for the kitten but it ended up, Daisy Mae was so small she was able to get through the holes in the cage. Since we had Tigger at the same time we had Daisy Mae, we had to figure out a way to introduce the cats to each other. We put up a screen door and that worked well for a while but eventually the screen door came down. When the cats were finally introduced to each other, everything for the most part went well. Of course, Tigger was the one that did all the hissing when the screen door came down. Since Daisy Mae was the younger kitty cat, it helped Tigger become more playful and more mellow. In fact, Tigger warmed up to my Dad right before she passed away on September 11, 2015. We miss Tigger everyday. As for Daisy Mae, we have had her for 10 years and this year will be 11 years. Daisy Mae has been a joy and a blessing. We love her a lot. My family and I feel that God brought us Tigger and when she passed away, God brought us Daisy Mae. My family and I felt that God knew we would eventually need some joy and that we would be sad when Tigger died. The joy Daisy Mae has brought our family is beyond words. Daisy Mae has been a blessing that is for sure.
