Mommy was very excited to receive our Angel VSQuillions the other day, and she will be putting them in our sidebar soon.
The first one is Muddy, or The Mudman. Mommy has written about him before, so if you want to read about him, you can click here. Muddy died shortly before we came to live here in August of 2006 and, of course, Mommy misses him every day.
Next was Desdemona. She was with Mommy for 15 years and she was a crabby Torbie. Actually, she wasn't crabby with Mommy, but she was the only one Desi was nice to. Mommy said Desi used to be really nice until her love, MoMo (see below), died and Mommy adopted Muddy. She never was the same after she lost sweet MoMo. Desdemona died of kidney problems in 2004 on Mommy's birthday. Mommy had found her 15 years earlier on her birthday as a tiny kitten under a parked car, so she thinks it was appropriate that she left on that day too. Mommy misses her very much.
Last, but definitely not least, is MoMo. He was a thin, short-haired tuxie. He was a very special gift to Mommy from a friend of the family. The little girl, Kimberly, gave Mommy her own cat MoMo when, after a visit, she noticed that MoMo and Mommy were crazy about each other. Kimberly died a few weeks later in a car accident with her two brothers. She was only 13 years old. Mommy thinks the little girl instinctually knew something was going to happen and that's why she was so insistent that MoMo go live with Mommy.
MoMo, like Kimberly, died far too young at 9 years old. He was having surgery to prevent his crystals when the vet found that he had cancer all throughout his body. The vet suspected that it may have been caused by the food he was eating (Science Diet), because at the time it contained an ingredient called Ethoxyquin, which is a rubber stabilizer and a known carcinogen. Mommy sometimes still cries about MoMo and he died in 1997. She said he will always be in her heart and she misses him like crazy. She hopes that he is with Kimberly again.
We are so happy to have adopted these three so we can keep an eye on them. They paved the way for us to be spoiled and loved, and we're very happy they're here...even Desi, the crabby torbie!
