and thank mew fur visiting my page. My name is Claudia and I came
to live here in February 2005. I was just a little kitten then. Someone
had found my sister and I in their yard and had taken us to the Marion
county animal shelter in Ocala, FL. We had to stay in an outside cage
it was sooo cold. It was freezing some nights.
A few miles away, my
new Meowmy was miserable. She had lost her special kitty Lestat. She
hadn’t planned on getting another kitty at first but she realized
after awhile that she missed having a kitty that hung around her.
She looked on petfinder and called a few rescues. Several she couldn’t
get in touch with but the final straw came when she DID get in touch
with one and the woman she talked to was rude to her and told her
that anymore cats than three would be too expensive for her (without
knowing anything about her). This rather obnoxious woman was my lucky
My new meowmy called Cosette’s daddy in tears, told him what
happened and said she had changed her mind. Cosette’s daddy knows
what a good Meowmy she is and told her she didn’t have to put up with
that. He went down to the county shelter after work and saw my sister
and me. He knew one of us would be perfect, so he called her to ask
if she wanted a kitty with big eyes or little eyes. She said big eyes
so he adopted me! She had to wait for me to be spayed to pick me up
but she was soo excited, she bought me lots of toys and a new bed.
She decided she would name me Claudia after the little girl vampire
in Anne Rice’s vampire chronicles, to remind her of Lestat.
went to pick me up, she cried when she saw me because I reminded her
so much of Lestat when he was a kitten. I was 12 weeks old. Unfortunately,
I was also sick with a respiratory infection, but I got over that
pretty quickly. Then there was a bigger complication. As she was leaving,
Meowmy heard the shelter staff tell a couple that the kitty they had
chosen had tested positive for feline leukemia. I had been in the
same area with the kitty. I had been tested but if I had been recently
infected it would have been too early to tell. Meowmy took me to her
vet and she said I had to be isolated for 4 whole weeks! Yuck! So
I lived in Meowmy’s bathroom and bedroom. I was happy to be home at
all though. I climbed right in my new bed and went to sleep.
Here I am in my bed my first day home, wasn't I cute?
had gotten me a ton of toys and when I felt better I played and played.
I liked the electronic mouse and the teaser the best. I still like
the teaser and have worn out around five to date. I was such a happy
kitty, when Meowmy took me to the vet I purred so much, she couldn’t
hear my heartbeat! She tried bouncing me a little but I didn’t stop
so she had to take my pulse. I looove attention and I purr anytime
anyone pays attention to me.
I FINALLY got to meet my new brothers and sisters after a month. Cosette
sniffed, hissed and walked away. Dante sorta liked me but hissed some.
Tasha liked me right away, she’s my friend. I grew on Dante too and
we wrestle a lot. The dogs, well, they’re another story. Cleo and
Sagittarius hadn’t been around a kitten in awhile and were very anxious.
Not that I’m a mean kitty…but I have my fun with them. I will sneak
up, swat at them, and then run. I will also sneak down the stairs
and wait til they see me. Once I get them whining, I will run back
up. Occasionally, I will sit on the landing and dangle my little head
over til they see me. After awhile they started to calm down and not
get so excited when they saw me. That was no fun, so I started running
to my human sisfurs room for little toys and things. I throw them
down the stairs at the dogs then run. Meowmy is hoping to get a picture
of me doing this soon. I am a happy, fat fun little kitty and my Meowmy
loves me very much. She adopted me in memory of Lestat. I have my
own personality, completely different from his, but I helped her get
through the tough time of getting used to not having him around. She
says I am an awesome kitty and she feels lucky she got to adopt me.
More about Claudia:
My birthday: Somewhere between November 1-6 2004 but the vet made
it October 31 so I’d be a new years baby. I’m a Scorpio.
My favorite things to do: Play with the teaser, sleep with Meowmy,
and mess with the dog’s minds. I also got a new brother Magnus. It
was my turn to be hissy then but I am starting to like him and we
play a lot.
My best friend: Tasha is my best friend to lie around with but Dante
and I love to wrestle.
My weird habit: I like to nibble on necks. It makes Meowmy laugh because
she named me after a vampire.
