July 2011 Cat Connection Winner
Voted "Cat of the Month" by The Cat Connection Shop Cats


Owner: Corena
Cat's Name: Buster
Age: 4 1/2
Breed: American Short Hair

Corena writes: " Was owned by one other person for a year and given to me due to previous owner's boyfriend and daughter being allergic to cats, she also had long black hair like me and was in the military although she outranked me. Has been loved and cared for, for almost four years. He enjoys playing with his younger brother, Lucky who is 3 1/2 years old and fathers/mothers and befriends him. He demands attention and will even go as far as doing something naughty to get it. He takes great pleasure in accessing high places, from the closet to the very top of your front door to the fridge and down onto your counters, he will climb and jump. A gift for gab, he will tell you what is on his mind or when he is not happy or hungry, wants the kitty litter box changed. Sometimes I think he just likes the sound of his cat voice. He loves the outdoors but alas mommy keeps him as an indoor cat. An escape artist at heart, sometimes he just wants a little adventure now and again and he gets it, despite mommy's constant vigilance. This photo is when mommy took him outside to the backyard on a cat leash and harness so he can get a sense of his new home (just recently moved). "

I call Chewy my “special needs cat” because he is on phenobarbital for seizures and Methimazole for his hyperactive thyroid. Other than that he is still going strong and is a great companion. "

July 2009 Cat Connection Winner
Voted "Cat of the Month" by the On-Line Poll Participants


Owner: Sabra Taggart
Cat's Name: Alex
Age: 1 1/2 years
Breed: Tabby

" Alex was a rescue from the City of Irving Animal Shelter. Originally I was fostering him to help him get over his fright and was able to find a home for him. Sadly he was brought back the next week because his leg had gotten broken and the family could not afford to help him with the medical cost. I knew that the shelter would not keep him and would either try to find a rescue or euthanize him. Since I knew the situation with most of the rescues because I am one of the volunteers that try to get cats & kittens out for rescue, I knew his rescue chances were slim as well. So my husband and I took him back. We took care of his medical bills and had his leg fixed. He was around 6 months old when that happened.
Now he is a silly guy. He should have been named Squeaky because wherever he goes he lets out a little squeak. He is a very nice cat and totally loves attention. He gets along with all our other cats and plays with some. As you can tell from his photo he tends to sleep in strange positions. And for a cat he sleeps rather deep compared to our others. We are very glad we took him back and got him well and would miss him a lot if we didn't have him around. "

Congratulations Alex!

Owner: Dolly Zamora Arroyo
Cat's Name: Kutie
Age: 10 years
Breed: Domestic Short Hair

" Kutie was the only one who survived amongst a litter of kittens from a stray cay my dad adopted. Not long after Kutie's birth, her mom passed away. I found myself becoming a sudden mommy. Yes, it's been a decade and, thanks so much to my baby, I know I've actually become a better person.

Kutie was also diagnosed with feline megacolon almost 5 years ago and since then, she has been on daily lactulose. Recently she was also prescribed a liver vitamin supplement. She takes her meds without any fight. She understands what they're for. Her diet also consists of high fiber oat bran cereals, imported from the US, that I buy from an organic grocery store.

Hope she gets considered... this rose was a gift to me... but, of course, she needed to have it for herself.. "

Congratulations Kutie!

Owner: Jonathan Hess
Cat's Names: Puss
Age: 1 year
Breed: Tabby and Siamese

Sue Hess writes: "Puss was adopted by my son, Jonathan, when she was about 8 weeks old. She lived in a farmhouse where many litters of kittens had been born that spring. Puss places herself quite high in the feline hierarchy. My son has taken in other cats temporarily and she considers them commoners and tolerates them until they move on to a new home. Puss loves kitty treats and spends her days begging for more treats or lounging around the house as if it were "her" castle. She is a petite pussycat and even though she is 2 years old now, weighs only 4 or 5 pounds."

Congratulations Puss

Cat's Names: Baby & Brawler
Age: Years 5 months
Breed:

"My cat's names are (left) Baby and (right) Brawler, they are only 5 months old and are mixed breed kitties. We live out of the city limits by an orchard and one day I spotted these little guys crawling out of the bushes when they were VERY little. They were completely wild and have had no interaction with humans. It took us about 2 months of feeding them and hanging around outside for them to finally come up to us. Slowly we were able to pet them and pick them up. As soon as I picked them up,we brought them inside, and they have been treated like royalty ever since. "

When she was a kitten it was cute, but now that she's bigger .. not so much, but we did put that thing in front of HER window, so we have nobody to blame but ourselves. LOL!"
