One of the sweetest cats I have ever known!!!!
I had a great post planned for tonight filled with sausage reviews and recipes but that is just going to have to wait. I have shown my cats on the blog before but never talked to much about them. They are definitely not just cats they are family members. Sunshine, is the orange cat and the newest addition to our family (last July). We found him literally hours from death in our garage when we moved in our new house. Here he was the day we found him. He was so starved he was unable to walk.My husband and I are both suckers for animals and even thought we had reserves about a kitten in a brand new house we just couldn't bare to give him up. So we nursed him back to health. He quickly made friends with our other cat Kiki (aka Kiki Baby). We found Kiki (the black cat)at our old house in Arizona back in 2007. He was wondering around our back yard in 115 degree temperatures. We couldn't bare seeing him out in that weather so we brought him in and gave him tuna and water. My husband was hesitant because he has never had or really been around cats before but he has a soft heart! To make a long story short Kiki quickly became a part of our family and we couldn't bear to leave him when we moved back to Tennessee, so we drug him along on our 1700 mile trip home. Their was endless meowing and lots of potty breaks but we knew he would be happy once we got him home.He was such a sweet cat and put up with so much from the little one. She would drag him around and throw him over her shoulder and there was never so much as scratch layed on her! He always loved to cuddle!!!
My husband also became quickly attached to him as it was his very first cat.
He was an outside cat and loved to hunt. I wont go into great detail but he left us "presents" almost everyday either at the front door, back door or next to my husbands car (they had a special bond). This past Saturday morning we started to get a little worried about him because we hadn't seen him in over 24hr and he usually always stayed in during the day. Today we called and even went to Pound to see if he was brought in. When my husband got home from work we walked the neighborhood looking for him. While I was making dinner my husband went out to talk with a neighbor who broke the sad news. Kiki was ran over sometime over the weekend. We are all really sad and will miss him greatly!!!
CONFESSION OF THE DAY: We all show emotion differently and even thought I didn't cry when I the news was broken it doesn't mean my heart wasn't. I hate being so dramatic over a cat but I really loved him :( :(.
