Happy Tails: Meet Cheezle

Author’s Note: Many thanks to Miss Catherine for letting me ask her questions about her famous freckled feline. Pictures used with permission.

How old is Cheezle?

He will turn 16 Wednesday June 21.

 How did he come to live with you? 

Cheezle’s mother was a stray cat, and pregnant. My sister’s took her in and she took to me even though i wasn’t a cat person at the time. A few weeks later, we had kittens.
He lived at my parents house until 2011. That’s when I finally got a place I could have him. When he lived with them he had a dog brother and sister and a cat brother named Giovanni. He hates Giovanni!
 
How did he get those awesome freckles?
Orange cats can get freckles as they get older. This article explains it a little more http://www.catster.com/lifestyle/5-remarkable-facts-about-your-cats-nose-freckles
He just got more and more freckles, the older he got
 
He is so expressive, was it always like that?
I think Cheezle has always had an expressive face. Maybe more so now since I am constantly photographing him
When he was younger and lived with my parents he was an indoor outdoor cat. He loved eating rabbits. In the summer he could catch one every day. When he came to live with me, my parents said the rabbit population exploded!
He was keeping them in check
 
Does he have any furry brothers or sisters?
Right now he is the only pet. He doesn’t like other cats. I would love to get another cat but Cheezle won’t allow it. I don’t want to stress him out.
Yeah. He isn’t big on sharing
 
Anything else you want to share about Cheezle?
Well… He is very vocal. He does not have a normal meow, it’s more of a howl. Even though he looks angry all the time, he is actually a very sweet cat. He doesn’t bite or scratch and is quite social, at least with me. He hates when I leave him. He greets me everyday at the door when I get home from work.

Another angel gained his wings this month.

Harley, he was 12 1/2 and suffered a stroke.

 

He was a service dog who specialized in alerting for narcolepsy and seizures.

In Loving Memory: Sharon

I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted.

But I wanted to do a post about Sharon Mohr, who was my wonderful co-writer of the blog. She did a lot of my reviews and I am very grateful for her friendship.

 

I met her through her cat’s facebook page. Neptune the Special Cat.

She sadly passed away earlier this year and had joined Neptune at the Rainbow Bridge.

 

Know you will always be loved Sharon.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thankful Thursday: Sharon

I wanted to thankful my wonderful friend and co-writer Sharon Mohr for being so awesome.

Though we have never met in person and communicated by e-mail and phone. I wanted to say that I am so thankful to have met her.

I met her by following her cat Neptune (who has since gone over the Rainbow Bridge) and from there we chatted about cats and other various things.

 

I just wanted to say thank you Sharon.

 

*hugs*

Thankful Thursday: Buggy My heart pet

Today I’m thankful for my heart pet Buggy.

For those that don’t know what a “heart pet” is.. here’s a friend’s definition:

 

“A heart pet is a pet that is a very special pet that you know there will be no other like them. No matter how many pets you have they will never have that special connection to you.”

 

“It is a soulmate animal…you share a unique, deep special connection. You are a part of each other.”

 

So for those of us who have heart pets, let’s take a moment to be thankful for them, their presence in our lives and give them extra love if they are still with us, or remember them if they have passed over the Rainbow Bridge.
