my girl MS du Came into my life 5 years to day. Still not a lap cat but i love her to death. I love to hear her purr which she does always DU stands for down under cause that is were she was for the first 6 weeks she was under my bed and would only come out when she thought i was asleep. I spent most of that time laying on the floor by her reading aloud
I finally grabbed her cause she stopped eating.Man what she did to my hands!! she was terrified. 3 vets later I brought her to my quite expensive vet surgeon who I have known since high school.
10 minutes later DR press says oh wow look at all theses ear mites ! I t looked like a city in there Dr cleaned them out I brought her home and she started to purr and eat and get petted
Well any way she has come so far she comes up to me for pets and i actually have her trained to jump on the bed to get furminated once a week My old girl. missing teeth, sleeps a lot. gets cranky when someone gets in her way. Boy that sounds a lot like me !
SHE HAS TAUGHT ME 2 VERY IMPORTANT LIFE LESSONS! first is patience. She will sit and stare at me till I do her bidding she never complains or is a nuisance
the second is how little you really need to be happy a little food a safe warm place and the knowledge you are loved is all any soul really needs to be happy.
I love watching her she is the most beautifull pet i have ever seen. One of these days i hope to take a picture that does her justice

Thnk you Leslie at here kitty kitty for allowing me the privilege of having MS DU Thank you Maria my hooman love for not getting a lap cat quite just then ,but we found one for you a year later
Thank you DR meltzer- press for being the best vet I ever saw,SHE WILL BE MY VET FROM ADVARK TO ZEBRA

Awe DU Happy Gotcha Day! I remember how hard you tried to fight your Dad but you finally realized how much of a wonderful home you had.

Jim what a wonderful tribute to DU. She has helped alot of others who have come to pets you know. I cant think of how many times we refer to you and DU and how you patiently sat there reading until she came around :thumbs up

Love the pics! she sure is beautiful!

Hahaha! I love the way you named her for starters. She sounds like my dog Trooper, so terrified of everything that he wouldn't come out of his kennel. I forced the issue, would bring him out, then sit in the doorway while he was in the yard, and talk to him for hours. 9 days it took till he had the courage, on one of our walks, to trust me and playfully try to bite me on the b**(rhymes with hum). LOL. I know cats would be worse, and I don't know her history before you got her, but gee, you did a great job! Such patience, Jim, and courage to finally get hold of her and not let go. I think that you honestly deserve to have this beautiful cat. Love that little pink tongue just peeping out in the first photo.
