It was love at first sight!

My beloved grey calico, Emme

My beloved grey calico, Emme

Well, this is the story: I had a beautiful little salt & pepper tabby cat. She was called Mischief. She was the light of my life. She was an indoor/outdoor cat. A stray dog, probably one of those gone to the wild, pack dogs entered my yard and bit her and she died.

When I told my daughter, she mentioned it to her kids. Her daughter said "Grandpa needs a kitty". Shortly thereafter, my grand daughter found an adorable long haired grey calico kitten whom they presented to me. I was hooked! This little 6 week old kitten absolutely stole my heart. I had no choice but to say YES! I want her. Please may I have her? My daughter and grand daughter said fine! We wanted you to have her.

The moment that little cat was placed in my hands, she licked my nose several times, ears folded back, as if to say, "You won't bite me, will you?" I've been hers for 3 and a half years now. (by the way, it's 5 litters of kittens, later, now! She's a really great mom cat. Her name is Emme. She's starring on the "moggies" website from the UK which cat lovers can really enjoy. Go to , then click on . She wrote it!

I was chosen by the sweetest little feline in the world! I'm all hers.
God bless you ~ Norm

Touching story!!
by: Miss J

It's so sad that your old cat die.. but I am happy that you love your replacement cat as much as (or close to) the old cat. It's best if you keep your cat indoor so the accident wont happen again. and please dont hate dogs because of the accident, they are also really loving animal, just that when animal gets outside, they get wild and they just do whats natural to them- hunt.

Another Cat.
by: Jenny

I am taken by your story of your beautiful "replacement cat." I'm glad that you found another cat to love.

When my Trish passed away I knew that I could not replace her but knew also that I can still give love to another cat.

I did not wait so very long in taking the plunge. The result is a wonderful black male cat that is much different than Trish but is just as delightful in his own way. Everyone thought that i would wait years, but why? I have another cat to love, that does not mean that I was not heartbroken by the loss of Trish, but does mean that I can still give my love.

Emme would steal anybody's heart!
by: Larry (Editor)

Hi Norm,

I can see why it was love at first sight, Emme would steal anybody's heart!

Your granddaughter is right, grandpas need kitties, they bring so much joy. And the joy that Emme brings to you is very evident :0)

Thank you very much indeed for sharing Emme's delightful photo and your story with us.

my homeless cat adopted me

by Teresa Callahan
(Fayetteville NC USA)

we moved and i saw this cat and her kittens, started feeding them and they are my little pets now that live out side on my porch with all the comforts a house cat would have.

Unfortunately my husband is very allergic to them, but now they have love and some one to care for them. There are three of them 2 kittens and the mother, I named all of them, Misty(the Mother) Onzie, he has only one eye the other one is closed, I have no clue how this happened, and Shadow he is the biggest.

The Mother is going to have kittens. I have tried keeping her in the garage but she climbs in tires of our cars, so I keep a real good kennel and her own bed on the porch. She is my sweetheart. I have never had cats as pets but these once homeless cats now have a home. Im really glad they chose me to be their Mom I love them!

The kittens have kittens who have kittens.
by: Anonymous

Your cat must have had her kittens by now. I hope it went well , , how many kittens did she have? Perhaps her kittens have had kittens, how many cats and kittens is that? Far too many for you to look after?

A lot more homeless cats.

Good for you . . .
by: Larry (Editor)

Hi Teresa,

Good for you for giving a home and love to 3 homeless cats. I can tell that they give you plenty of joy :0)

Sorry to read that your husband has a cat allergy. (Allergy treatment is available, it varies depending on the sort of allergy he has, fur or dander.) Hope that his allergic reaction does not stop his enjoyment of your cats.

You do realize that the mother cat is going to keep on having litters of kittens unless you get her
fixed. don't get me wrong, kittens are wonderful to have around, but . . .

Thank you very much for sharing your great story with us.

How I Chose Baby The Cat.

by salaraz
(ocoee)

My mom brought home a cat and back then i loved babies so i named him baby.

He would love me and all but i went out side one day and asked mom were he was she said he'd been gone for 3 days so i went to look for him as i was. i saw a black with orange flecks cat she was cute then behind her came a car.

i jumped off my bike in front of he car the car stopped but the cat didn't move, so i picked it up and put it on the side walk. Having enough adventure for the day i headed home as i left i noticed the cat following me. i went as fast as i could but it still trailed behind me so i slowed down so the cat could run beside me.

It followed me all the way there. When i got there jumped off my bike and went in side in side the dogs started barking. So as i went to check it out. The cat jumped on the counter and started rubbing on me and purred and its now the neighborhood cat.

New neighborhood cat.
by: Larry (Editor)

Hi Salaraz,

Thank you for sharing your story with us.

It is great that you love cats, they are fantastic creatures . . . but please, don't go jumping in front of moving vehicles! You could lose your own life even if you save the life of a cat.

Glad that you are friends with the new neighborhood cat.
