Cecilia's Big Day


Hi there blogging buddies, Cecilia here!

The photo above is a picture taken of me when I first arrived here.  It was January 1, 2008 and I was homeless and ill.   I had nowhere to turn so when I found this wonderful yard and nice people, I let them take me in.   I had an upper respiratory infection and my new mom and dad made sure I got everything I needed to get well. 


They intended to get me all well and then find me a good home, but getting me well took longer than they expected...and well, you know.  With a face like mine, they fell in love.


Living here hasn't always been easy.  I have never really liked being a part of a big cat family.  I like other cats ok, just one or 2 at a time.  And uh...Bennette and Ginger?  I really can't stand them.  It's true.   Ginger and I have done better over the last few years, but Bennette and I have been having all out wars.  The sad thing is that this is upsetting everyone, especially Ellie and Cory who adore Bennette.


I have been in the house now for awhile and what I love best is sleeping on the bed in between my humans.  Problem is that Ellie and Bennette want to do the same thing.  I really need my humans to myself.  It's what I want.

And that brings me to our decision.   Mom and dad have decided that even though they love me, they have to think about what's best for me.   What's best for me is to live with a couple of humans who can focus on ME!  Mom found just the place with a longtime friend who has had kitties in the past, but is currently catless.  Can you imagine?  I know.  Sounds like just the place for ME!

Arrangements were made and I went to my new home on Sunday afternoon.   Now...please furriends, I need a few purrs.  Even though I'm delighted at the prospect of not having to share a house with other kitties and my humans will be...MINE, I'm still a bit scared since I don't know where the h*** I am!   Mom sent me to my new family with my familiar food and a bag of fresh nip from the garden...but you know, change is hard.

I have such wonderful memories of my blogging pals, the highlight was competing in the CatOlympics...in the Daphne luge competition.


Here I am in my new pink carrier, ready for my next adventure!


I'm hoping that I will get to guest post in the future so I can let you all know how I'm doing. 

Happy Tails my furriends!

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Aw, I'm sure that wasnt an easy decision, but it sounds like it's the best. It might be hard at first, but I have a feeling you're going to love the benefits of having a human all to yourself soon enough! Good luck and we'll be purring for you!

Raymond and Busby said...

Best of luck, Cecelia! We have also loved Calico girls because they have Catitude! We know you will love your new home. We hope we get updates every once in awhile. XOXO

Terri said...

That is so hard for everyone. We know your humans picked an excellent home for you, but they will still miss you and feel a little guilty. Do let us know how you are doing once in a while. Purrs and hugs for all of you!

We hope that you will fill your new family's life with love and vice versa. Please don't forget to send us regular updates. Maybe you can even convince to start a blog just for you?

Cecilia, this new home sounds PERFECT for you! I am purring that you adjust soon because once you have figured out you have these humans all to yourself, you are going to be SO stoked! Please do keep us posted on how you are doing!

The Furries of Whisppy said...

Cecilia, we know it must be very scary at the moment, but we just know that once you settle in, you'll do very very well. Your pawrents found you a very good new Mommy!
We would love if you could do a guest post here say once a month? :)

We know everything will work out purrfectly for you and your new family. Just think - it's all about YOU now! As it should be.

The Monkeys said...

Oh Cecelia! We are sure you'll be very happy living with humans all to yourself! We look forward to hearing updates about your new life!

Mariodacat said...

Oh Cecelia I know you will be very happy in your new home. Just think you will have the oonman all to yourself - no sharing with anyone. And if you train her right, you'll get a lap anytime you want one.

Fuzzy Tales said...

Cecilia, we're sending purrs that you settle in and revel in being an only kitty. Some kitties really do just need to be the only pet in the house and we really commend your humans for recognizing that and for doing what's best for YOU. It would have been a very, very hard decision, we're sure.

*Kitty kisses*

Random Felines said...

We hope things settle in quickly. We have wars sometimes here too and it makes mom sad. We are glad that you were able to find a home for just you but can stay in touch. We know that you will come around in no time!! Let us know how you are doing from time to time.....

Brian said...

Goodbye sweet Cecilia.

Katnip Lounge said...

All the best to you, sweet Cecilia! We know your Mom & Dad thought long and hard to figure out what is best for you. Be patient, and you will soon love your new home and you new peep.
Bon Voyage, and remember, it's the journey, not the destination that counts.

Katie and Glogirly said...

Oh, Cecilia...we are wishing you all the happiness and love in the world. I bet this was a REALLY hard decision for your mom. But I understand...after all I'm an only-kitty too. I may have lots of friends in the blogosphere, but I'm much more of a loner at home. I'm happiest when Glogirly and Gloman have me and only me. I bet you are going to love your new home! Please keep us posted on how your are. It will be fun to hear about your new chapter.
love,
Katie & Glogirly

Cat with a Garden said...

That's some big news, Cecilia. The new place sounds fine enough though - if they can offer you a garden, that is! We're purring for you that you'll settle in just fine. Will Madison come into the house now? Special consoling licks between the ears to him as we know how much he'll miss you. As will we! Please DO a post from time to time, will you?!
