My girl MS DU

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

Hey Jim, I remember when Ms DU came into your life and how difficult it was for her to start to trust. She looks like she has found the perfect home and the perfect people to care for her. Happy 5 yr gotcha day Ms DU!

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

Love the pics! she sure is beautiful!

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.

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.
