Formally Feral Shirley (RIP)

Before Blackie came to live with us, Shirley became our third cat.


My sister Leona, the cat lady, managed to trap a feral kitten that was living near her apartment building and though she was fairly young when she was adopted, Shirley remained partially feral all her life. We called her the "phantom cat" because when we came over for visits, she always disappeared.

After Leona and her husband sold their house and before they moved to the Big Island, they lived for a while with her husband's aunt and brother. Aunty Laura, USED to have a cat that peed on their carpet and Shirley could smell it and also relieved herself on the same spots. Nothing that Leona could think of stopped her. After having Shirley for so many years, she didn't want to just send her to the humane society, so Shirley came to live with us. Of course she disappeared once she was here and it took her a long time to trust us and allow us near her. It didn't help that Emily constantly chased her and her "safe spot" was on top of the empty rabbit cage in the patio.

She pretty much kept to herself so it was a surprise one day to see her sharing the patio couch with Molly and Blackie!

Shirley, Molly and BlackieShirley

Shirley went to the Bridge on 1/25/03 at the age of 17 and 4 months later, we found Tiger in the hedge. He's grown up to look so much like Shirley!

Formerly Feral Blackie

It seems like we've had Blackie forever since she's about 16 or 17 years old. She's outlived 6 other cats and she's fairly healthy despite her recent bladder infection. I was talking to my sister Leona (the source of most of our cats) and didn't realize how close Blackie came to being put to sleep. She was a very friendly adult cat who lived near Leona's office with a bunch of other stray cats. Leona took her home but she was an outdoors only cat since she had 3 other cats in the house. Blackie had a litter of 2 kittens but 1 disappeared and Leona doesn't know what happened to it. One of her neighbors took the remaining kitten and Leona had Blackie spayed.

Then Leona and her husband moved to the Big Island where they were building a house. They took their 3 cats with them but left Blackie behind to be cared for by Leona's brother-in-law. However, when she came back for a visit, she realized how skinny Blackie had become and found out nobody was feeding Blackie. Leona's husband told her to take Blackie to the humane society but it was close to Halloween and the humane society won't adopt out black cats near Halloween. Despite this, Blackie was in the carrier on the way to the humane society when Leona suddenly took the off-ramp from the freeway and ended up at our house. So Blackie joined Emily, Molly and Shirley as our fourth cat. (Shirley was another of Leona's rescued cats and I'll tell her story in the future.)

Pee Problems


Blackie, you need to take your medicine if you want to get better.


*sigh* Blackie had to go to the vet several weeks ago because she was peeing all over the place and there was blood in her urine. Though she didn't have a fever, the vet did a urinalysis and said she had a bladder infection and gave her antibiotics. She HATED those blue pills! She fought and struggled and spit it out and bit me. I finally wised up and smashed the pills into powder and mixed it with some canned food. But the problem came back and now she has antibiotics in liquid form. I mixed it with her food again but she could taste it and didn't eat it all so I have to squirt it in her mouth. Now she runs and hides when she sees me because she thinks I'm going to squirt that nasty stuff in her mouth.
