Emerald is so Lucky to have you and you to have Emerald. Special needs critters (that is what i call them no matter what their problem is. i have an Australian Shepherd with sight problems and i consider her special needs) i have noticed they are so loving and much more reliable on their human parent. i also have a horse with one eye due to an eye problem, but she is so loving and relies on me for calming her down on anxious times. i have to laugh as my mom & daughter kitties growl when they hear a siren (police or ambulance) on TV they growl or sometimes when a motorcycle that is very loud or even thunder in a distance and i can't hear they growl and i feel this that they are trying to signal danger. Emerald is such a beautiful kitty. she looks like my DJ. a emoticon and emoticon . sue

A few more things about Emerald. When they interviewed us at the shelter, they asked what our home life was like. They were concerned about her because she tends to be a bit anxious. At the shelter, she was having an awful time. When we told her it was just my husband and I at home most of the time, no small children, no other pets and that we are mostly very quiet people, they were thrilled. They said t is rare that such a good match happens. Emerald does get anxious at times and sometimes, we don't know why. But we know she likes living with us.

Emerald sounds like such a great little kitty and so loving. It is so great when they like to be held and cuddled and stay with you all the time.

Emerald is so thrilled to be cat of the week! She is our little princess. She had her name when we got her and we kept it because we thought it fit her regal beauty. Here is her story:

I was longing for a friend because both of my children were grown and I was lonely. I had grown up with cats and always wanted to get one since I was married but my husband never wanted one. He was not a "cat person." Finally, we decided we could get one. I looked through pet finder for a young adult kitty with a nice disposition and a lap kitty. Emerald's description was of a kitty who "loves to be picked up and whose purr can be heard in the next apartment."

I went into the shelter to meet her. She was one year old (estimate) and just weaned a litter of kittens. She was very frightened of all the other kitties and had to be kept in a place by herself. During the time I was introduced to her, she purred and growled at the same time but seemed to want me to hold her. When I got her home, she jumped out of the carrier and immediately started purring and wanting to be petted by us. She immediately took over like she owned the place! No hiding for our Emerald!

She is indeed a sweet little lap kitty. My husband and I have a running joke that we should clone her and send her to terrorists so that they would all be peaceful and nothing would get done! My husband is truly in love with her...sometimes I am just a tiny bit jealous! He says its because she's not really a cat. She's a dog. She waits for us by the door when we are away and greets us when we get home. She follows us all around the house like a puppy.

At one point last year, she had some problems with her kidneys. We found out she has one small kidney and we have to be careful what we feed her. No tuna or other foods too high in protein.

Emerald needs to lose a few pounds and wants to know if there is a weight loss team for kitties. If you look at her before and after picture on my Spark Page, you'll see how she looked when we got her. She was too thin then. We need to get somewhere in the middle.

Thanks for your kind comments about our Emerald!

Love,

Joanne
