Once feral, but I liked people...

Dis is my "warming boks" when it's cold outside I push it over by the thing that blows warm air and sit in it until my furs are nice and warm. When it gets a little warmer outside I push it a little bit away (but I still like to get a little heat). Hey, I like to be warm, what can I say. I was about 9 months old when I was captured along with my three babies by a nice lady. I had been living in an enclosed trailer behind a naybors house. I went to a nice shelter and after awhile my babies got adopted but I was still there. Mommy came to see me every day. The shelter people were calling me Shady Lady and saying things about the fact that I had two litters of babies and wasn't even a year old. They called me "loose" which I now understand is a grate insult! I was mad at them for taking my babies, I was angry that they called me names. To show my anger I became withdrawn and very shy. Mom got to know me and finally decided that I needed to come home with her where no one would call me bad names anymore. Mom sez dat I've become a real love and dat she just knew dat wif a little pashence I would be a very good poodin. I'm still a little shy around new beans, but once you've been in my howse for awhile I will come out to say "hi, here is a beyootiful gerl kitty for you to look at". Uncle Gil lived here for a couple of months so he knows dat I'm a good cat. I slept with him every night and when other people say I'm stand offish he tells them that I just don't like them, then he laffs. The trooth is, I really do like beans. I always did. I just don't want to throw myself at them and prove those shelter people right, I am not 'loose'! The piksher below is fur all yoo boy cats - it's a rare siting of my beyootiful tummy! (note the demure tail curl, loose indeed!)

Your blankies look so comfy! Does she put nip in those blankies to make you want to roll around on them?

Oh Sadie, you are a very beautiful lady cat. I can't believe anyone would ever call you names! You look lovely lying on your quilt. Your mom is a very special person to have seen past your shyness to the wonderful cat inside. Thank you for sharing your story. :)

Daisy said...

That warming box looks great! You are smart to position it so that warm air blows in through the opening.

Sadie, I do not blame you for being upset about having your babies taken away and being called loose! I am glad you have a good home now where you are understood. You are not loose, you are very ladylike.

You are very talented! You can move your own box wherever you want it! WOW! I'm a little talented. "Shady Lady?" What does that mean? You don't look like you're in the shade. And taking your babies, that's just not fair. But be happy that they're in good homes and so are you. You sound well loved!

Kimo & Sabi said...

Hey Sadie lady! Nice tummy shot!

Parker said...

Hi Sadie! You are very smart for moving your box by the heater! Good idea! We are all glad your Mommy got you out of the shelter. You weren't loose, you were just doin' what we kitties do when we aren't fixed!
Purrs!

Derby said...

I move the waste box by the heaty spot to help catch the hot wind.

Sadie, lots of girls have a rough early life. It is what you have made of your life since then. You are now a respectible lady catizen.

Big Piney Woods Cats said...

Derby is right, you are now a respectible lady catizen, just like me. It is the furless ones that pen the loose word, humpf....

Zippy, Sadie & Speedy, thanks a bunch for checking up on me while I was sick. I'm trying to get better, even though my human insists on squirting nasty stuff down my throat and goop in my ears! :-(

Great box! Great quilts! Great Cats!

Mattingly said...

Sadie don't you worry about a thing. We all know you are a wonderful, gentle, ladycat. It bothers me when beans say kitties are standoffish. I also take a long time to warm up to new visitors, but it's not because I don't like them, I'm just careful!

Oh and you all looks so fantastic with your quilts! Speedy that was very gentlmancatly of you to check out the quilts for safety!
