Ariel


The photo on the left is one of the very first photos I took of Ariel. She was very sick with a stomach parasite. I have since learned to look for signs of a sick kitty. Dull watery eyes, dry crusty nose, etc. My problem was I saw her in that cage in the pet shop all by herself. I tapped the cage with my fingers and this tiny ball of fluff came walking up. It broke my heart and clouded my senses. I was looking with my heart, foolish. I'm lucky my story has a happy ending as Ariel got to a vet. Who gave me medicine and with lots of love she pulled through. Now she is 3 years old and my best buddy. She has enriched my life in so many ways she means the world to me.

if your heart didn't find ariel she would never had received the care she needed to recover from her illness. it was meant to be! she has grown to be such a pretty girl. love the spot of pink on her nose.

katnippia said...

What an adorable, beautiful, sweet looking girl you are Ariel. I have to agree with momsbusy, if you had not taken her she might never had recieved the care and love that she needed. You are a very special person for taking her. kitty lovers and snuggles to you.

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Isn't Ariel just precious. So tiny. She reminds me of little KC. And she has grown up to be so beautiful. And healthy.

I'll definitely be visiting her site.

I will be gone most of the day, my articles are due at midnight. I had forgotten completely in the excitement...

...check Missy & KC's blog for details. FYI, Missy now allows tum rubs! She is even beginning to pur.

Right now, as I'm typing, she and KC are playing. It's a reserved kind of play, but still, an attempt. Just can't believe it.

What a cutie Ariel is!! Glad she got the attention she needed so she could get well and grow into the beauty she is today!

Cecilia said...

Ah, sweet Ariel, you are a beauty. Love your markings. And the big collar on her as a kitten is just too precious.

Emma's Kat said...

ML - Good luck w/the articles! And I'm so happy for you and Missy too! She didn't know what she was missing! Can't wait to see a picture of them romping together!

Ariel was such a sweet baby and she's grown into a very pretty girl! Its lucky you came along. You would think that the pet shop owners would get appropriate medical care for their animals!

Saw yesterday's late post about the two white persians needing a home. Any luck? I am sorely tempted as I really love the fluffy ones. But, this weekend I am taking in another kitty. My ex-husband has decided he is moving in with his girlfriend. He says he cannot keep the Whiskers the cat (my daughter's cat) because his girlfriend already has 3. (The more the merrier, I say!) However, he is keeping his dog. Anyway, my daughter, Katie, was upset because he was going to take Whiskers to a no kill shelter. Of course, I couldn't let that happen, so he is coming to live with us. Katie also wants to adopt one of her classmates kittens. They won't be weaned for about a month, so she has plenty of time to talk me into it, however, I think that may be too many changes in too short of a time for the current fuzzies in the house. We'll see.

Kim said...

This is such a sweet story. Maybe I'm just emotional today but that really put a lump in my throught. Great, now I'm tearing up! Thank you for looking with your heart!

Hello Ladies and Gents, Cats and Kittens, Woofies and well, you get the idea!

katnippia said...

No Kim, it's not just you. It is a very touching story.

Just to let everyone know, if i don't post to much until next thursday it is because I am going to be busy working. So i hope everyone has a wonderful labor Day weekend .

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Hello again,
Just checking in mid-day. I hope KC grows up to be as healthy and beautiful as little Ariel did. Poor little Ariel was very very ill when you took her, that was so wonderful of you. And now she will "pay back" to you her entire life. That is a wonderful story.

Missy's tum is still making appearances. Yes!

Back to the articles....ML

Pumpkin said...

Ariel, you are so lucky that the right person adopted you so that you got the right medicine to fix your sick tummy. You've grown up into a very beautiful kitty and I enjoy visiting your blog.

Mom said...

We are working hard locally to find homes for the persians, we may have one with a gal I used to work with. These guys are just beautiful with their flat little noses and big blue eyes. Yes some people are so ignorant I just want to smack them. It might be worth a week or two in jail LOL

Mom said...

Hope they dont throw out this baby if they have another.

Karen C. said...

Hello sweet Ariel! Sounds like you chose exactly the right momma! My kitties have been checking out your blog every day since we found it a while back - you're just lovely!

Emma's Kat said...

Mom - I'm so sorry I forgot to repost your comment as I said I would. It was a busy day, but it would of only took a second if I'd just remembered! Keep us updated on the kitties if you can! I will make a special post tomorrow.

Ariel said...

Thanks for all the sweet comments.

Ariel said...

Wow she does look like Lady.

I can't believe this. I set out to get some ideas on my new site.. you know themes, color, layout, etc.... and I can't believe how much stuff I've found looking around. I'm liking some of the stuff I see here... some good ideas at least. I'm not sure if I want to go with normal blue underlined links or if I want an entire theme of colors for all of the text and the links too. Anyway, nice page, it gave me something to chew on. If anyone actually sees this and feels like it, you can check out my site. outdoor fireplace
