Bootsie was Born here in Our Building in the Month of June. 1993
A neighbor was feeding the mother cat and asked me if I would be kind enough to drop off cans of food in the morning when I walked Tai..(Lhasa Apso) Grace and her husband where going away on vacation... Sure...
The mother cat(Muffin), a Beautiful Calico , after a few days,she showed me her litter of 5. She had no Fear of Tai at all.
One kitten, had the most Beautiful Turquoise eyes,and went over to Tai and he (Tai) just started to lick it's face. It seemed it was meant to be.
In Late July of 93..
I was asked by (Grace) if I wanted a kitten.. I said NO Thank You and Male only if that should ever happen in this Life time. :O)
Then Grace and her Husband did another weekend get away. This time, Muffin sent the kids out :O) all 5 of them.
During the week, the couple came to my Apt. and said Thank You and gave me a little gift bag for feeding them.
In it was ....Kitty food and The Turquoise One..... He was a Male
Tai was jumping like crazy.. "I want to see him Mommy"
from that day ,Bootsie became Tai's brother.
(Boots) thought of himself as a Dog.
He ate everything Tai ate.
Loved Ham and Liverwurst. . He would Kill for It. :O) "It's Mine Mommy "
In Oct. 2007 I brought in Finnegan .. Tai was up in age and had a Bad Heart and a Tooth problem
Bootsie never saw a kitten before and was totally lost. What a fun time that was.
He just let Finnegan run the show. They played together and raised Hell together .
Bootsie must have taught him not to jump and break things because he never did.
Now Bootsie ..That is another story.
Tai passed 2 months later and Boots was at a total lost.
Took him over 3 weeks just to come to me and then Finnegan . Slept in Tai's crate and by his water bowl where it use to be.
Bootsie, up until a few days ago, you would always see him sleeping in Tai's crate or just relaxing in there.
He is with Tai now and his Grandparents.
Who he visited often. He loved going over to my parents. Boots just wanted to stay with them.
See Grandma and
and Tai 2007
GOD SPEED... My Faithful Companion
Thank You Boostsie For All The Wonderful Years.
