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

Always happy to learn about people like your family.

We also try to take care of stray cats and tell people about the absurdity of breeding.

She really looks regal, both her name and nick suits her well. :meow:

.....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! :)

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.

He`s alive but he lost his left leg...
He had fall from 10th floor and everyday needs a medical inspection.
Horrible thing is that my last year of school can be ruined but I`m doing what I can~~
Sadly my mom is working out of my country because of the money...
And everything is up to me.
I just hope that he will get well soon because we have suprises from him day by day... :icontearsplz:

Buba is so cute ^^ I'm happy that you've given her a loving home, because she deserves it :3
It's so sad how people could treat an animal badly >.< I really can't stand it when an animal is abused or unloved.
All of my cats are rescue cats too... My two kittens almost died because when we first adopted them, they were only a few weeks old and they had worms from the rescue centre they stayed at, they were so thin too and one of them almost died, but thankfully we nursed them back to health and they're almost two years old now ^^ If they hadn't been adopted within a few days, they would have died. I will always have rescue pets for as long as I live because they need homes more desperately than any other animal.

Shes lovely, its to bad she has been through so much.

Also, was this near Toronto, Canada? I'm just asking because I have a young cat who looks a great deal like her named Sheba. Sheba has a thin and lanky build with a narrow face, yellow eyes, and a long tail. I don't know where she came from initially because we took her in after my aunt passed away suddenly this summer. I'm just curios now that I've seen Buba ^^"

Well, black cats are actually very good luck, obvously you found that out, huh? Only in America by men who hated smart women (who then burned said smart women) did this concept of black cats and bad luck start. Those type of men are evil themselves anyway, maybe why they had bad luck.

It's a very prevalent belief right here, I've seen people not even wanting to go close to a black cat, or being mean to them. Whoever hurts a cat is evil and deserves the bad luck :no:

Oh God, that's horrible. Black cats are the best sort of good luck you can get. Plus, they're so sweet, seriously, most cats aren't as sweet, some are, but damn, black ones, they're the sweetest things in the world. (has my little black kitten in my lap-he's so cute!) :iconcuteplz:

I'm so glad you saved her. Most of my cats are adopted (the others were born in my house) and I can't see a stray cat without wanting to take it home. I try to teach people that buying animals is wrong on a million levels, but sometimes they don't understand =(

Sadly many vets are just working for the money... there's a park I used to visit in which people throw cats away. There are some vets there, but when it's almost 5pm they ignore the animals (including one terrifying case of a cat that needed surgery and was bleeding and in a lot of pain) and say it's their time to go home. I don't understand why they work as vets if they don't love animals, honestly.

yay I knew you were a nice person, adopting rocks! :highfive: I also try to teach people that buying animals is wrong, I hope we can make a difference :) but I don't let my kitties have more kitties, we always fix them to make sure XD there's enough kitties out there that need our help x.x

Really? How could they leave the cats like that! That only makes me love my vet even more :noes: yesterday my clumsiest cat fell, it was almost 10 pm and the vet had just gotten home to be with his family but he still saw us (my cat had a dislocated hip, the poor girl, she's much better now). It was fun trying to explain how a cat fell xD the vet couldn't believe it. But he has seen us at ungodly hours, Sundays and even new year's eve. God bless him.

We actually just adopted two Siamese kittens that were so shy no one wanted them. Kinda like my other cat. They've come out of their shell so well so far, it's great.
