I'm a woman obsessed with cats. In this blog, I channel my absent Siamese cat named Angel. She lives with my family in this blog, 3 teenagers, a 4 year old boy and a 15 month old little girl. Life is complicated here. We twitter often, but be prepared for teenage interruptions as well as baby moments... Hope you find it interesting here....

At the Shelter

Yes, we've been here at the shelter for a week now without internet access. Drives Mom crazy! She says Thank You all from the bottom of her heart for the cards you sent. She's working on handmade thank you cards right now.

If you'd still like to send snailmail, send it to:

Rush, Rush, Rush

Sorry about not updating much, we've been packing and cleaning it seems forever. We're going somewhere safe and that is good! Mom finally gets to sleep through the night. we're thinking of all of our Twitter friends especially and how they stood by us in our time of need. It may or may not be almost over, but the first part is, so we're happy. Moving in 24 hours plus a little. Keep up with me guys! We wouldn't have made it this far without you!

Bad News

I found out today that we may not have a place to live for a month or so and thus be homeless. So tired... Mom doesn't know how to go on. 4 kids and she adores them all. Fortunately I'm here in spirit.

For those in similar situations, here are some important links. Nobody wants to give their companion animal away because of being homeless..

Mom's been through this before. It's one of the reasons I'm not with her now. She has a cat staying with her father (A kindhearted soul he is!) She wants to move back in with both 'Cuddles' and her father. It will eventually happen! Funny thing is that she's been in animal rescue for the past 16 years. 6 of those years she has been saving her own (animals and kids). Give her a hearty clap and a #pawcircle so we can all get through this. She wants to just go to sleep and just wake up on the other end of this nightmare! She still loves us all and wants to get on her feet again and rescue again... A woman worth knowing!

I thought I was lucky. Everyone left the house yesterday and came back red. Sunburn. Every single one of them. I thought that cats couldn't get it. apparently I'm wrong. After a little resarch (one of my favorite sites howstuffworks.com ) I found this article, "Home Remedies for Cats With Dandruff." Apparently dandruff is caused by too much sun. If you're interested, here is the link... http://animals.howstuffworks.com/pets/home-remedies-for-cats-ga3.htm

Beware cats, I even found something called 'Kitten Lotion' online. I don't know what this is, but you never know! EEK!
