When is your birthday Miss Misty?

I was born on July 9, 1992.

Where did you get your name from?

My name is Misty Blue because I AM misty blue! Like the soft, grey mist raising from the forest floor in the morning, that’s what mom says. When my mom named me she had no idea that Misty was a popular name for cats, because I was the first cat that eber lived with my mom!

How did you come into your mom’s life? I saw you were abandoned, were you in a shelter or roaming the streets?

The people who had my cat mom moved away and left her! She was less than a year old when she had me, my brother, and my sister. Thank heabens the next door neighbors took us in. they kept my cat mom, and found us all homes! I came to live with my now mom when I was 8 weeks old. I would like to ask people, please,k spay and neuter your companion animals…and know that they are NOT going to be ok if you abandon them outside!

Between having surgery for cancer, renal failure, hyperthyroid, megacolon and diabetes and have your eye removed, how much time did you spend at the vets?

Oh BOY, I spent a LOT ob time at the vet, but that was mainly going in for chemotherapy, habing my eye treated before it was removed, going in to hab my sugar levels tested, and stuff like that. I only had to stay obernight a couple nights after cancer surgery, a few nights for radioiodine treatment (for hyperthyroidism), and not eben at all after I had my eye removed!
It’s ok, as it happens, I am bery brave!

Oh…one time I ate a rubber band and I had to stay obernight too.

How did you adjust after having your eye removed and did anyone treat you different?

My eye had pressure building up behind it for months before I had it removed, but nobody realized it! By the time I had it removed, it hurt me a lot. After I had it removed, it still hurt, but then it started to get better and better so now it never even hurts at all!

Nobody treated me any differently, because I live here with mom and dad, and I am their Baby. To my brothers and sisters, I am just their Misty Blue. You see, I am no different. I think maybe my facebook friends see me differently because they only got to know me in the past year, and they see an older cat with one eye. They do not know the Misty Blue with the flashing green eyes who ran and jumped, who moved with the grace ob a shooting star in the night. They don’t know that I am still that same Misty Blue.

What type of treatment did you undergo for diabetes or did you just have to lose weight?

Do they check your eye just to make sure everything is okay?

Pbbt! Did I hab to lose weight because ob diabetes?? Just what are you insinuating, may I ask?? Misty Blue is NOT fat! My liddle brother Murphy is the Liddle Fat Fat! I take a shot of insulin twice a day.

How often to you have to go to the vet?

My mom takes me to the vet about 4 times a year to get blood work to make sure I am getting the right amount ob insulin. *sigh* I wish you hab not reminded her. They check my eye, but I hab not had a single problem with it, and it’s been a year and three days since it was removed!

May I ask how the hyperthyroid was treated?

Certainly you may! I was diagnosed with the hyperthyroidism when I was eleben. Since I was nice and healthy otherwise, I was sent to Radio Cat. There I was cured with a single dose (injection) of radioiodine!

What is a typical day like for you?

My days are lazy now. I usually wake up on my heated pad by mom, or sometimes in my heated bed on the dresser. Mom and dad will scoop our litter boxes, clean our water bowl and put down fresh water, give me and mishu our medicine and me my shot, then feed us all (Did I mention Liddle Fat Fat? He eats a lot!) The liddle boys will play and the rest ob us will settle back in. About this time I wander out to the kitchen for a bowl of cream. This is a special for me! After that I settle in, sometimes I help mom with stuff, sometimes I watch dvd’s or tv, then pretty soon it’s time for more noms! I like to stay by mom during (grabbing her noms, hee!) and after her dinner time, and then we might watch tv more. In between all this busy activity, I like to sleep! THEN, it will be medicine and noms time again! Mom and dad will scoop our litter boxes, clean our water bowl and put down fresh water, give me, Mishu, and Bib our medicine, me my shot, Mishu ‘n me our subq fluids, then feed us all again! Then I settle in with mom on the warmies (which all hab our special Junipurr blankies on them!), and we *snuggs*, with my head in her hand, untill we fall asleep.

Have you decided yet if you like your catnip mouse that you got for Christmas?

Oh yes, I DID like that nip mouse! That was last Christmas though! you should see all the pawsome stuff my Aunties sent us this year!

May I share the chip in for your continuous care?

I had a stroke last fall, and there was a chipin to help mom pay my bill…and we did! after that the chipin was closed! But…my brother and sister, Bib and Mishu, both hab cancer now. it makes us bery sad, but we are doing our best to help them! I would be bery grateful if you would share their chipin!

Is there anything else you would like to say about yourself or your family?

When I say us, I speak ob me, Mishu (a pretty liddle Himi mix who is 15), Bib (a handsome torti and white boy who is 9), Buddy Lee (a kingly, white and black long haired gentleman who is , Ivy (a pretty torti Siamese, 8 years old), Conan Chauncey (a precious liddle orange guy named after our beloved Chauncey, Sweet Blind cat. Conan is almost 10 months!), and Murphy (a dark brown and white torti, about 6 months old now…cute as a bug!)

Anything else?

May I please mention my brothers and sisters who hab gone on? I lubbed them all bery much and miss them. This is my bery first interview, and it wouldn’t seem right now to tell about hOp (Stormy), my first cat boyfriend. Boy, he was a wild feral! He was a handsome grey and white tux! Then came Liddle Sunny, a golden tabby, also feral, a very special, shy liddle girl. Ob course, some years later, my Sammy came to live with us. He was a gorgeous black and white tux, and I loved him like no other. The year after that came Georgie. He was a greybie like me, only more stripey. He and Sam were best friends, but he slept with me at night! Teeny Isis was a 5 pound black cat that dad rescued with our d o g g i e, The Beautiful Michelle. Dad also rescued pretty little dilute torti Ceili.

Oh holy cats! Mom says since I told about evvyone else, I had to tell about those silly d o g s! Sadie is a big, silly, black and white Cocker Spaniel! Mom picked her out from about a million dogs before we adopted her! Maisie is a pretty (pretty goofy!) Black/tan/white Shetland Sheepdog. Sadie is nine already, and Maisie is five!

One more thing please! I hab the best friends in the world. It makes my mom cry just to type this. My cat friends, and people friends, dog and hamster friends, sheep and turtle friends, all my friends that I’ve met on facebook…well, I couldn’t ask for more. I hab been so lucky to become a member of such a kind, generous, and lubbing family. Fank you for interviewing me Ms. Christina. I lub you, and I lub you all.

Waaoow! Do I talk too much!? I will need to nap now!

Dedication:

  • Such a hard life Misty Blue has had but he certainly teaches us all to live more like a cat and still enjoy every moment, without feeling sorry for ourselves just because we are a little bit different.

  • katiebblogs says:

  • AWESOME, Sweet Misty Blue!!! You are Very Good at giving an interview–I Can’t Believe this is your First one!!! You are SO Special, your Whole Family is!!! I am Very Sorry about Bub, he Is Missed. I know this interview was before, but I wanted to let you know how I feel anyway. You are SO Precious, Sweet Girl and Definitely Inspiring <3

  • Hi thanks for following my little blog. I have just started to read yours and love it, keep up the good work. Misty Blue reminded me of a British Blue that used to room with me in Kent, his name was Rocky and is sadly mist.

    Happily Rocky was much better off than Misty Blue and had every comfort through his life, just like the other six Cats who used to share our house and garden and stare wishfully into the large garden pond which had so many big, fat, juicy, crunchy, and probably tasty fish in it.

    Why oh why do Cats hate water? That’s what I want to know, if we didn’t the six of us could have emptied that pond in less than a day – makes you burp just to think of the wonderful opportunity doesn’t it?

    Purrs,
