Meet Jamie...

If you remember September 23rd's post, you'll see that a young man who fell in love with cats had passed recently. His friends made a donation in honor of his life and love of animals, asking that a cat be named after him.
Well, this is Jamie. He was one of the first cat's that came to be fostered with us at Cats Exclusive after we received that touching letter and generous donation. Jamie is outgoing, sweet, playful...and, as you can see, very handsome. He needs a home where he can live out his life happy and healthy, bringing years of honorable memory to his namesake. We hope human Jamie's spirit lives strong in the memories of his friends the way cat Jamie will live strong in our hearts and in his future home.

Disgruntled Employee

So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working,
every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life.
Can you guess where the quote is from? I loved this particular movie because it reminds me so much of my life. I'm still waiting for a furrever home that won't make me earn my keep. Hehe. Cats Exclusive put me to work, but at least they gave me the pilot's chair! And at least they got rid of those screaming children for me! From what I hear, they'll be at the CFA Cat Show this weekend, but I'm gonna act like I don't know 'em. Darn kids...darn job! Come give me a home!! I work for food...apparently.

In Memory of Susan Napier

From all of the cats and caretakers of Cats Exclusive, we send our deepest sympathies and heart-felt wishes to the Napier family. Susan passed away last night...far too soon. Susan and her cats have been patients at our clinic for months, and her sad passing touches us all. We send our regards especially to Mr. Napier, whose life with Susan was undoubtedly brighter and whose life without her might never be the same. She will never be forgotten. We are so sorry for your loss.

Get My Belly!

I love when people rub my belly! Oh! By the way, they call me Mary, but my friends at Cats Exclusive poke fun at me, singing "Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary." I can't image why they'd say that! I'm the sweetest little thing. I am always massaging the air with my little paws and purring until my body shakes. But I have to admit that sometimes I wake up and don't know where I am. I mean, I know I'm a little ditzy, but it's sort of scary the way everything goes black and then comes back again. I've heard weird words about it, including "seezzer" and something that sounds like "feenuhbarbibol." They tell me it just means I'm "special." I don't feel specialer than other cats. I just play until I'm tired and sometimes things are a little fuzzy. I am waiting for a family that can take care of me. I just need some food, water, toys, and gooey, gross medicine twice a day! Oh! And I need love. I'm just waiting...but till then, I roll over so everyone can get my belly!

A Little Sadness...A Lot of Success!

To: The Cats and Kittens at Cats Exclusive,

Please accept this donation of $100 in memory best friend (human) who passed away this year.

We were friends for almost 21 years. When I met him he didn't like cats - he said they didn't have personalities, like dogs did. Then one day, over 10 years ago, someone brought him an orphaned kitten to raise; as there was no one else to take the little fellow in. That was the beginning of the loving relationship between my friend and cats.

My friend named him Gandolf (from Lord of the Rings). Since then there were other cats. When my friend...passed away this summer, he had 2 cats. As his best friend, I tried to find a good, loving home for "Gandolf" and the other cat, "Little Girl." I could not take them in as I already had 6 cats and 2 dogs. But we kept them at our house till a suitable home could be found.

My friend's only surviving relative is a mean, wicked witch of a sister. When she arrived from out of town to clean out his house, she looked all over for the cats. She did not know we had taken them. She wanted to take them to animal control to have them put to sleep!! We told her that the cats must have run away.

Gandolf and Little Girl are now permanent members of our growing kitty family. Yes, there are 8 cats and 2 dogs (that's 40 paws and 10 tails!) I can't say they all get along, but they do the best they can. My 25 year old daughter will be moving into her own apartment soon and Gandolf and Little Girl will be going with her. The cats will be much more comfortable, just the 2 of them.

They miss my friend as much as I do. We're all trying to adjust without him in our lives.

This donation is in his memory. He was one of the greatest, kind hearted people I ever knew - especially when he learned that cats are loveable and have awesome personalities. If a kitten arrives without a name, please name it my friend's name. He would just love that.

Thank you,
Anonymous 1 and Anonymous 2

Proud parents of Peanut Butter, Weebles and Spot (all from Cats Exclusive), Griffy (found on Griffin Road, having been hit by a car), Schmoopies and Monkey (we're babysitting while our son is out of the country). And of course Bailey and Brandee (the dogs, who think it is their job to keep the cats in line.)

We will definitely name the next cat that we receive after this couple's kind-hearted friend.

Indignities (by Queeny)


I am Queeny, and I must say...this is the most undignified I have ever looked! And that "Magic Coat" shampoo is doing nothing wonderful for my hair. You might be thinking this looks like one of those massages about which you humans always obsess, but I am not so lucky. As you can see, that lady gave me an UNREQUESTED facelift. I mean, for goodness sake, where did my ear go? But! As my name suggests, I am a Queen, and I too shall bare these degrading situations with my crown held high.

However, I need a castle of my own...well, a castle of my and my sister's own. We have ruled as twins, and, even though we're both declawed, our 7 year reign has proven quite impressive. We rule by love, not fear. Maybe a kingdom of our own will ensure these indignities never happen again.
