Why our Kitty Angles are Canadian...



Even though I'm an English Kitty through and through, and so is Tigmut'hep our Mummy used to live in Canada with her old Kitties. So you see we have Canadain Kitty Angels, which is good as they can look after my Marie for me! :) You see they lived in Calgary too before they became Angels...

The Siamese one is Barbie-Q, she found Mummy when some people had hurt her really badly. Mummy took a few days to gain her trust and then managed to catch her and take her to the vets. The vet was horrified at the state she was in and said if Mummy wanted her and would look after her properly he'd tattoo her and register has being Mummy's cat. You see she was not only underfed, but someone had glued her ears flat onto the top of her head and ner chin to her chest with some sort of strong rubbery glue. It took weeks to work out all the glue and a month or two for all the hair to grow back. Needless to say she was totally loyal to Mummy for all her 13 years...

The grey and white kitty is Socrates, he was a rescue from the SPCA when they had a bad outbreak of feline flu and were having to put a lot of the kittens down as they were too sick to live. Mummy just couldn't let that happen, so she adopted him and nursed him back to health with the aid of her vet. Socrates was a very silly cat and made Mummy laugh lots and lots. He was scared of heights for a start and couldn't work out how to jump or meow properly, so he just used to run into things he was trying to jump up on and make silly "mac, mac" type sounds when he wanted something... Even though he had a good life with Mummy, he didn't have a long one as the flu had done more damage than they realised for many years. He was only a little over 7 years old when his body gave out on him, but those were 7 years he'd have never had if it wasn't for Mummy adopting him... Mummy says he's the sort of kitty Angel that makes things go "bump" in the night, as she's sure he's still got 3 left paws! ;)

They're certainly good Angels as they've bought me to live here with Mummy after being a very unhappy cat who didn't trust humans one bit. Plus they saved Tigmut'hep from being badly hurt when he fell from the spare bedroom's window onto the patio below. He was just a bit brused and grumpy when the boy found him - which is probably why he's very loyal to the boy, eer sorry "His Boy!" ;)

So I'm sure my lovely Marie gets a visit from Barbie-Q and Socrates from time to time to make sure she's doing ok. I just hope Socrates doesn't knock anything over... ;)

That's great it seems the Kitty Angels and the medicine combined to work on getting your nose back to normal! Well normal being the prettiest pink nose I've ever seen... :)
