New cat: Meet Buba by Talty New cat: Meet Buba by Talty
This is my newest cat, Buba!

Buba has been with us for a month now, and I'm so happy my mom found her! She's the sweetest little girl, she loves to cuddle and she has the sweetest purr, so when I'm watching tv she will sit in my lap and purr until I fall asleep. I've missed so many of my favorite shows because of her xD

As all my cats, Buba has a sad history (my mom did an awesome detective work finding out what happened). We found Buba extremely thin, I think that's the thinnest I've seen any cat, with a small scratch in her nose, a really big injury in her shoulder (that's now healed) and calling her kitties. Apparently, a "veterinary" found her when she just had her kitties, locked her away in a tiny room until the babies were big enough, and later tossed her to the streets and sold her kitties. And he took the kitties too soon too, so my little Buba was at risk of developing an infection, which luckily didn't happen but had us nervous.

THAT MADE ME SO ANGRY. So the lesson is:
1. Don't buy pets, adopt and rescue. People do very mean things to animals when instead of seeing a little life, they see $$$ signs.
2. Find yourself a real veterinary (not a bastard like that guy).

When my dad saw her, he said "Well now you have to bring us good luck!". We don't believe in good luck, he was just saying it... but a couple of days later he got a job promotion, and a week later something awesome happened to us xD so now we like to think that she's our little lucky charm.

Actually her full name is Ceres Bubastis Cleopatra, we wanted a name with a meaning:
Ceres - After the Greek goddess of family and agriculture. Because she was a great mother to her kitties, and we wanted something that meant abundance and good luck.
Bubastis - After the Egyptian cat-goddess Bastet, protector of the home and symbol of the happiness in life. It was just perfect for her.
Cleopatra - Because we were already into Egyptian names and she has a pointy nose, sleek black hair and a regal look, so it was fitting.

I love her name so much xD and I also love to call her Buba :P

.....I want to kill that veterinarian! Buba is so lucky to have been found by your family. you are wonderful people.

your cats are all so lovely, it's heartbreaking to think that if things had been different, they'd have died on the street. we need more people like you and your family in this world.
I feel the same way about cats that have been abandoned. here's the cat we rescued from outside [link] on the day he came into our home. poor fellow was so confused. he is just the loviest baby. total lap cat and cuddler, but he's a confused cat.... he gets tempermental if you do what he wants for too long. we love him though! he's doing so much better since he found us two years ago!! here he is with our other cat [link] The other cat has a very different story. we got her from a rescue association. She was born to a mother who was FIV+, FeLV+ and was separated from the mother along with the rest of the litter to prevent any chance of the FIV or FeLV being transmitted to the kittens. she was given to some sort of surrogate (we suspect a cat that was raised with or by a dog. Mao acts just like a dog, but she hates dogs....) until she came of age. Mao never got proper "cat lessons" as a kitten and acted like a kitten for the longest time. However, she's starting to act more like a cat ever since Nick joined the family as he's been giving her lessons on how to be a cat.

That is not right what she had to go through! But at least she found a great home! :)

Yep, and hopefully her story will inspire others so that no more cats have to go thorough the same :)

Oh, I had two sisters that looked just like her. They were both very small, like minature panthers, and they both became very bonded to me. One was with me for 21 years, and she was fully grown when I rescued her from a shelter.

that's a lovely story, I love to know about people that rescue animals and they live happy and loved for many years :) good for you, you're a kind soul :heart:
