Welcome Emcee (Middle Cat)
First Hiss :)
Emcee (actually MC for Middle Cat as she was named by her first homies) joined our family today. She was born on May 12, 2007 in Mohave Valley, AZ. She is decended from a dumped-by-the-pond litter of baby kitties that some very kind folks happened to hear mewing one day and took into their home. Since Tank passed away back in February, 2007, Xena has been kind of lonely and we decided she should have a new buddy to play with. When we leave the house, she meows and meows till she is hoarse. She just doesn't like being left alone, and we just can't stay inside all the time, so the solution is Emcee :)
I sure miss Tank, he was a beautiful true Manx, he didn't even have a nub of a bone where his tail would have been, just a little tuft of hair. He rode back and forth with me when I was commuting between California and Arizona and he was so well behaved, my mother would let him come inside her house when we visited with her too :) He was a pretty trippy kitty and I miss him. We believe he ate some kind of poison. He was kind of lethargic one evening and gone the next morning.
This was Tank when he was about 9 months old. Patricio was a rescued from the street starving little guy. My friend Patricia found him and gave him to me, so he was named after her. He came to the desert with us. He started spending more and more days away from home so I knew we were sharing him with another family. Then one day, he came home snuggled all of us said goodbye and moved out. We still see him from time to time 2 blocks away. He really hated our dogs and I suppose he decided it was time to move on. It's nice to know that he found a good home for himself :)
