View Full Version : Cassie & my Polar Bears
03-08-2008, 11:19 PM
I woke up this morning to find my cat, Cassie nestled in and around the Polar Bears I keep on my bed. She snuggles in among them to sleep when it's chilly.
I woke up to snow yesterday, and it's 90% gone today.
She will lay there when I'm knitting and watch me from there. She has finally learned that if I'm knitting, it's safer there, especially when I'm trying a new pattern. lol
She also has been known to put me to sleep by purring by my head if I'm having trouble falling asleep. She is priceless. I saved her from a rescue center, she had about 3hrs left.
She has been a part of my life for 3.5 yrs. I can't imagine not having her. She can be agrivating, but I wouldn't have it any other way!

She certainly knows how to make herself comfortable. That is a cute picture.

How adorable!!! Rescue animals just seem to know that they were rescued, don't they?!

Oh, how warm and snuggly she looks. Bless you for rescuing her!

I rescued her.. yes.. but she has given more than you can imagine. She loves petting, attention, and has NEVER had an accident. She is sweet, and I am so grateful to her. Her babysitter when I'm out of town spoils her more than me. She is a treasure.

I truly believe that animals know when they have been rescued. They make the best pets! All three of mine are amazing animals.
I'm so glad she brings you such joy!!

I rescued my kitty Charlotte. She was the so called "runt of the litter". My boss at the time, told me she was going to go to "kitty heaven" if I didn't take her home.
We had no pets, so I brought her home to my two kids, in my purse. She was pure white with a black spot on her head which disappeared after a couple of years.
One time I was so horribly depressed, I was laying on my back, in bed, and she planted her purring self down on my chest and would not move. I will never forget that time.
She was with us for 20 years and 7 months, she did go to kitty heaven, but after she had a good life. She died 14 months ago, but I swear she is still sitting on the stairs above my knitting chair watching me. We really miss her!
oh jen thats just had me crying. my cocker spaniel that i had as a child who died very young of a very rare type of cancer i'm the same with. i swear i hear her bark and see her on my bed (even though i live in a different house, even a different country!!).
she wasnt a rescue but had some problems. i havent losta cat yet, i'm dreading the day more so than any other animal tbh. all lmy cats do like your charlotte did they curl up and know just what to do when you get upset.
i brought in 6 feral kittens that my neighbour (who owned them) told me her husband was going to drown, and thati wasnt to bring them in as they were hers to do with what she wanted!! like hell, they have been with me ever since i borrowed her trap (so say to trap a coypu hehe). they are a little strange but georgous. how anyone could do that to any creature i will never know how people can do it to a living creature.
good on you taking her on

I told Cassie all the stuff you guys wrote. She responded by saying Meeeeoooow. Which means hey, that's what I'm here for.
She is a sweetie, and is totally completely spoiled.
She prefers the cool cotton sheet in the summer.. so she's avoiding the polar bear.

and got your e-mail thank you
i am so jeaous of you
about 9 years ago my daughter rescued a kitty for me
as my old girl had died
and it was the most upsetting time for me
she was 20 years old
well we got a 4 month old abused kitty
and guess what
she adores my husband me she wont look at
it has become the family joke
i believe that it was a female that hurt her
and she has never forgotten
but i love her from afar but i would just love her to come and sit
with me and cuddle
