True Story [Apr. 5th, 2012|05:21 am]

When I first got Roswell she was a feral stray kitten whose eyes were swollen shut from an infection. She hissed & spit and hated people. After her eyes were treated I had to chase her down twice a day, throw a towel over her, wrap her up like a burrito and pet her for 30 minutes. After about four days of this she decided that she liked it.

Roswell trying to decide if this belly rub is unpleasant or not.

Is it Roswell's anniversary with you? How long has she been with you now? I have a soft spot for tuxedos, my first cat Spitfire was one and Calamity (Calamity Bitch) you know was one too. Roswell ended up to be such an awesome cat, which goes to show you don't find the perfect pet, the perfect pet always finds you.

She was so damn tiny then. By the time we had met her, she had swelled to her current glory.

They all grow up too fast. Kali was the same way and sent me to the ER her first day home. The towel didn't fair well either. Time passed and she and her sister are curled up under the bed covers at night.

Such a sweet picture (and a sweeter story still). Thanks for making her world a place worth living in.

Oh my gosh, what a cute little baby! Looks almost exactly like my Tommy when we first adopted him.

It's always funny how they grow from these tiny little cute things into large lumps. We took in a kitten at 5 weeks who fit in the palm of my hand with room to spare. Now? He's 28 lbs and we're trying to figure out how to get him to lose weight while stopping the other cats from losing weight. Oh, and he'll take the skin off of your hand with his face.

She is so tiny! Funny enough, my friend gave me some Nori snacks at the movie theater tonight and I had a thought for your cat :-)

I would have had a very hard time imagining Roswell as a kitten, if it wasn't for this picture. So cute.

Roswell is such a personable, photogenic kitty, I'd never have guessed at her feral beginnings.

I adore (& miss!) Roswell. I'll never forget the first time I heard her bounding down the stairs towards me and I thought she was a rather robust human ;)

I'm having great fun reading the 'old' Roswell Chronicles. Thanks. I've gotten all teary a couple times already. Just because I've known (and helped) many a snotty eyed cat. Amy Kelsey-the Beadwhisperer
