** CAT ** I had gone to the groc. store the sunday after Thanksgiving and there was a young girl with an older kitten in a box. Her father told me they'd found this poor lil thing UNDER their house and their dog kept looking @ her like food and would I please give it a good home. I asked if it was a girl and luckily, it was.
I named her Holly as xmas was the next holiday coming up and Eva just sounded good for a middle name. She was a Burmese- Balinese mix, so she had a meow that could wake the dead.
I was on the phone with my mother and Holly decided to "talk" from across the room. My mother said "oh LORD, she sounds like such a little misery" Holly stopped in her tracks and looked @ me. It's @ that moment she got her full name: Holly Eva- Misery loves company" Good thing she turned out to be a social cat- never met anyone she didn't love.
She was Fergies' playmate and partner in crime. Many a snack was taken if it wasn't offered fast enough. I always had to get an extra order of chicken strips @ Jack in the Box as Holls always wanted them all.
She started to lost weight so I took her to the vets- she had a toe that was infected.. It was cancer so we had the toe removed and hoped that was it. Then a few months later, it happened again- off came another toe. Then we found out it was lung cancer- almost unheard of in cats.
She was on heavy pain meds but still jumping, playing and eating well so she wasn't suffering. He had a stroke and it froze her head over her shoulder in a way she'd never be able to eat. The vets office had just closed and I was forced to have her put down @ the Humane Society.
Halls Mentho-Liptus-cough drop kitty was sent off to meet up with her sister, Fergie ( who's listed here ). She was giving a quasi-egyptian funeral.. wrapped in layers of sheer material with rose petals and buried with the things she loved in life: her cat nip toy, an emery board and her beloved chicken strips.
**On Dec. 12, 2013 I adopted a long haired black kitty I named Formilin Laveau( Lin) and it's like Misery came back to me in a way**
Specifically: Buried in my backyard
