August 23rd, 2014 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

Ok, I know it’s been a long time since I posted on here, sorry about that. Honey was a special personality that still is severely missed. Its coming up on one year since I adopted Sully, the other tripod kitty. He is doing wonderful, spoiled rotten and happy. imageimageimageimage

Another addition

We have added another tripod to our household. Sully was found along side the road with his right back leg shattered in 3 places. The animal control officer that picked him up dropped him off at the pound and recommended euthanasia. The vet on hand decided he was worth saving so she amputated his leg. Sully came home 2 weeks later. Honey and he love to have 3 legged races every evening.

One year ago

One year ago today I was whole, I was shattered but I was whole. OK so I am still whole, I only miss my leg occasionally. Meowmy wanted to acknowledge that one year ago today I went to sleep with 4 legs and woke up with 3.

9 days before I was found in a driveway with all the skin ripped off of my leg. I had crawled up into something called a car because it was warm and I thought safe, until it attacked me. I was taken to a vet who worked for 9 days to save my leg, but it was dying so they took it off.

I don’t miss my leg too much, except when my shoulder on that side itches. I can outrun all the other critters here and Meowmy made me some stuff so I can climb up where I can’t jump.

I’m a happy kitty and I just want everyone to know that just because a critter may not be what you consider “Whole” they are not missing pieces.

Expressions

April 8th, 2013 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

I have had cats and dogs (as well as other critters) all of my life. This experience has shown me how to read facial expressions on both dogs and cats. Admittedly some have more expressive faces than others, especially cats. I have had very few cats that have a large variety of facial expressions, dogs are generally more expressive.
When I acquired Sugar, my Maine Coon, I thought he had an expressive face. Teddy (my one eyed cat) only has 2 expressions, lazy and alert. But Honey can say more in an expression than I have seen on any animal other than my dogs.
I began to realize her different expressions when she comes up to me and I can tell where she itches. I have been trained to realize if she is wanting to play, be petted or just be lifted to a surface. I guess the most blatant example of her “speaking” through a look happened the other day. Honey was on her perch watching something outside when my mom decided to goose her. As she was hanging off of the side of her bed she gave my mom a look that told everyone what she thought of that trick. I have to admit that she re-gained her perch before I quit laughing.

Phantom limbs

March 31st, 2013 · 3 Comments · Uncategorized

I find it funny when Honey tries to use her missing leg. She tries to scratch her chin and acts like her chin is getting scratched, or when she takes a step (not as often as she used to) with nothing there. This cat, hysterically, has trained me to be an artificial limb for her. She comes up to me so I pick her up, well that’s not what she wants. She immediately puts her hip in my hand and tries to walk away, normally onto the counter or desk I’m near since she can’t just jump up. She also get’s this look where she comes up to me and stares, then twitches someplace. That is my clue that she needs what I call “super scritches”, where I pick her up and scratch all over. I can always tell when I hit the itchy spot. Who else has been trained by their tripawd?

Lizzy’s story

March 31st, 2013 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

Lizzy was my friends dog. We had just graduated High School and my friend, Kara, that I had known since 5th grade decided she wanted a dog. We went to the pound and there was a little white dog with only one eye sitting in a cage. This pooch caught my attention but Kara decided to go into the dog room and look around, I stayed with this one. She came out deflated and said none of those where what she wanted, I said look at this one this is your dog. Needless to say “Lizzy” went home with her. Lizzy was a great one eyed dog until she lost her front leg to cancer, then she was a great tripod/one eyed dog. She lost her fight last year but she was in her home for 15 years. She was a great dog!

Birthday toy

March 25th, 2013 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

My little Honey Bear, AKA Munchy Butt, turned 1 year old this month. Teddy will turn 4 next week and Sugar will be 10 sometime this spring (don’t know his exact birthday). Since they all have milestones (and I got a deal on groupon) I decided to get them all one big kitty toy.

I think it’s a hit

Tripod attack!

March 24th, 2013 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

“I love to lay an ambush.”

I think that would be Honey’s theme in life. I know the other cats I have are not overly “typical cat” and I think Honey is the most typical cat of all my cats. She is also the biggest clown of any cat I’ve had. My first cat that was “my” cat and not a family cat liked to play “hide and seek” by ambushing me. I think Honey takes this to the extreme. I’m trying to go to sleep, absently scratch an itch, ATTACK! Wiggle a toe? pierced toes. Move my head, she grabs my hair, and then she gives me such a pathetic look I have to play with her.

I’m not her only victim, she hides under the dog food dishes

Yet somehow this cat has filled a hole in this house that we didn’t even know was there. Sugar is TOTALLY in love with her and acting like a kitten, Teddy is infatuated with her and not yowling so much, and Pardner has another kitty to play with. I’m lucky, I’ve never had a problem introducing new animals to my existing group but I have never had a cat influence the others as much as this little tripod has.

No fear of doggies
