Kitty Star of the Week for Apr. 28 - May 4, 2002.
Dear Friends, Hi, my name is Kitty Baby Gram from
Chicago, Il. I'm a Maine
Coon and Shorthair breed, and I love to have my tummy tickled.
Mom and I play with Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer so I can
kick, hiss, bite and growl and get Mommy for having the nerve to
tickle me. Rudolph is an oven mitt Santa
left for me. Most of Rudolph's nose is gone, but I
haven't bit off much of his antlers yet.
Two days ago, before Mom could arrivefor playtime I was
looking for my Christmas ribbon under my paper bag
when I ended up with the
bag on the my back and my head through the hole.
Paper bags and I don't last
long because biting and scratching them to shreds is
another favorite activity. When I accomplished all this, Mom tosses
one of my 3 blind mice in the air, and after I catch them-how long they remain
stuffed is anybody's guess. They were among my 7th birthday gifts March 1
so perhaps they'll last until Santa's return.
After Mom tames the tiger out of me for the day, and a
nice cleansing tongue bath, I have a date with the
SandKitty and it's off to
the land of dreamland for me where I act out my
Tiger Lily antics. Bye! Your
friends, Kitty Baby and Mom-Christine.
March 2008, A Memorial:
Kitty Baby, enjoying the sun
Her person mom sent the following:
Kitty Baby, A Decade of Love
Kitty Baby, our special blessing, came home with me from a vet's June 2,
1998. She was born March 1, 1995 and died in my arms, March 8, 2008.
Kitty Baby loved playtime! Her favorite game was to rabbit kick the oven mitt
I wore and hold me down with her strong front paws! She enjoyed sniffing the
bushes, smelling the flowers, and looking for garden snakes in the spring and
summer. Kitty Baby's travels to the great outdoors were always supervised with
me or my husband.
Kitty Baby, you are the "sunshine in our lives". I will wear a heart shaped
locket with a few locks of your fur inside with the inscription, "Kitty Baby,
A Decade of Love."
Thank you, Kitty Baby, for the love, patience and joy you gave us! You are
forever in our hearts!
Mom and Dad-
Hide and Seek, age 4
Kitty Baby's parents also shared some memories of her.
"The funniest thing Kitty Baby did was jump over my head in the middle of the
She was 5 or 6 years old. Often, around 4 a.m. she would wake me up to be
tickled.I kept an oven mitt by the bedside. My husband just laughed, turned
over in bed and
went back to sleep when I had to tickle the energy out of her so I could get
sleep...Yes, once I did wake up still wearing the oven mitt!"
Keeping Clean, age 10
Celebrating Christmas, age 9
To her person-dad "the funniest thing was when he was bending over in the
bathroom. Kitty Baby's litterbox was in the bathroom. She needed to use it.
Pushing the door open, she hit him in the head with the door!"
