Two weeks ago, my husband took our dog Carter to the vet for his second round of Lyme disease vaccines while I was at work. Suddenly I got a text message from him: a very SPECIAL text with a very special picture attached. This picture made me so excited, I responded in a flurry of text messages back to him. My husband responded with more pictures. I then sent him about a million texts back, all with the same message: GET ME THIS!

A week later, "this" came to our house.

Would you like to see "this?"
Are you ready?
Would you like to see -- really really REALLY like to see???

Introducing: MISO!

That's right: we have a new kitty -- a new MANCAT ADOPTED-BROTHER HIMALAYAN kitty!

Miso was in a cage in the pet food store next door to our vet hosptial, looking for his forever home. His details are unclear, but apparently he had been found as a stray back around August or October, wondering around in someone's yard, with severely matted fur and chronic diarrhea. I guess he stayed at the hospital for all that time as they worked to figure out the cause of his diarrhea.

Here he is in his little cage -- poor baby!

I had to wait a week to find out if we could adopt him -- my husband put in an application that same day but apparently someone else had an application in ahead of us. Lucky for us, they never returned the hospital's phone calls -- so last Monday, I brought him home to live with US!

He's a doll-faced Himalayan -- no flatface like Zuzu, more like Anna -- but undoubtedly a Himmie: blue eyes, darky points (I think blue point?), chunky fat little body with shorty legs and fluff! Where on earth he came from, I can't imagine -- how could anyone abandon him? Did he get lost? He's only about a year and a half -- poor baby!

So far the transitioning period has been going well -- the first few days Anna hissed her head off at him and Zuzu just looked at him like "WHAT THE HECK IS THAT!?" A week and a half later, Zu still avoids him (but watches him with big Zuzu eyes!) and Anna only hissed once today -- when Miso butted into her, in that "pet me" way he has. We're working now on getting him used to Carter -- Carter wants to play very badly, but Miso is "HISSSSSSS, NO DOGGY!" Today, however, they've been staring at each other through the baby gate I have up most of the night with no hissing or barking -- BIG improvement. The hardest part of the transition seems to be getting all kitties on one food: Miso's diarrhea seems to have completely stopped on a special diet of prescription low fat/high protein food. Rather then mess around with what's working for him, I've decided to switch the girls to that, as Anna is prone to diarrhea about twice a month herself (wonder if it's a breed thing?) We have to do this transition very slowly, a little at a time, so as not to upset their tummies!

The best thing about Miso Mancat BrotherBoy Kitty is his temperament: he's a big purring loveball, very sweet with the softest meow I ever heard -- softer even than Zuzu's tiny meow!

I'll keep you posted -- just wanted to share the news!

I sell a boat-program which will help you to outwit auction and to win, initially the boat was created for the Scandinavian auction but now the program can work with similar auctions: gagen ru, vezetmne ru and with ten.
The program-boat stakes for you, i.e. for this purpose it is not necessary to sit constantly at the monitor. The boat can set time when it is necessary to stake, thus you as much as possible will lower expenses for rates, and as much as possible increase the chances of a victory.

The price of the program a boat for the Scandinavian auctions 20$

For the first 10 clients the price 15$

To all clients free updating and support.

Behind purchases I ask in icq: 588889590 Max.

Yes, Bhu, it sounds like he has had a hard life of loneliness and confusion so far. I'm glad he now has a good home with lots of loving 'beans around! xxoo Patty
