Welcome .....

I created this blog to promote Animal Awareness..... promoting Healthy Pets and Safe pets. Most of my friends know that I want to be a Veterinarian. I have been accepted into the Pre-Vet Programs at University of Toledo, BGSU, and Heidelberg College. I have decided to attend the University of Toledo and major in Chemistry with Pre-Veterinarian intention and Minor in Music Theatre. Then I most likely will go on to Ohio State University for Graduate School.

I am so excited about my career choice.....I love Pets.... and I love all my pets. My Pet Family consists of 2 dogs and 3 cats. We have two beautiful Golden Retrievers....AKC certified. King Odin will be 7 years old this summer and we also call him Bubba.... he has arthritic hips and doesn't move too quickly sometimes but guards our backyard just fine. Galadriel 2's Lady Anastasia aka Annie will be 4 years old this summer. She still acts like a pup. She has a Elvis snarl when she is nervous and is chewer at times, so we have to watch her closely.... We also have three kitties. Queen Amidala or fluffly butt is who this site is dedicated to. She is the oldest and my first pet at 8 1/2 years old. She is very special as she was a rescue and sickly when we got her, we weren't sure she would survive, but she is a fighter that's for sure. Over the years.... she had become more of my mom's cat than mine which was okay. Amidala snuck out the door on Dec 8, 2007 and disappeared. We haven't been able to find her, despite endless searching, flyers, signs, newspaper ads, radio news and assistance of pet psychics and missing signs at all the veterinarians and pet shops in the city of Toledo and surrounding areas. We think someone took her in and they don't want to give her back. Then we have Princess Leia.... I guess you can tell by now that I love Star Wars. Well, Leia is definitely a Princess.... we also called her Evil Spawn when she was little because she was so mean to Amidala at times then as she got older we called her Fat Cat because she is a chunk... she weighs about 14 + lbs now....compared to Amidala who only weighed between 6-7 lbs. Leia, is 5 years old, and is a tuxedo cat. She had been standoffish up until Amidala disappeared then she was really depressed and is just now starting to come around but is more attention seeking and has very affectionate moments.... Then there is Palmer.... Palmer Rebel is the newest addition to our family, he is a white flame tip Siamese with blue eyes and is about 7 months old. We found Palmer at Camp Palmer in Fayette, Ohio last August when the Bowsher High School Marching Band was at Band Camp. Palmer stayed in our cabin with us all week, mom went to the store and bought litter, cat food etc to take care of him....before the week was over we also found Palmer's mom and three other baby kittens, so we kept them in a empty cabin near ours and kept them warm and fed them. Then mom brought them home with her and before we left Bowsher she had found homes for Palmer's mom and siblings and even had takers for Palmer if we didn't keep him..... Dad wasn't too happy about it but mom said she wanted to keep him because he was so darm cute and loveable.....which he still is....Palmer got his name for where we found him, me and the girls in my cabin named him and Rebel for the Bowsher Rebels.... After all.... it was appropriate for the Head Drum Major to keep the Band Mascot right? So, that is my pet family.....

Since Amidala has disappeared we have been leaving fresh food and water daily for her and have adopted a stray cat that comes around, she is still skidish of us but doesn't run to far when we are near now, but is beautiful, all black long-haired, very fluffy with orange eyes. Mom wants to bring her in and adopt her and keep her as an indoor kitty but my dad glares at her when she suggests it, so she hasn't yet but she is trying to provide food and shelter for it during the cold months. We hope that Amidala will find her way home soon.... we miss her a lot!

Queen Amidala has been missing since Saturday, December 8th. She some how snuck out and we haven't been able to locate her! Several people have told us over the past 2 days that they saw a cat like her around but mom and I haven't been able to find her!
We miss her a lot, and are devastated that she has disappeared. We have combed the neighborhood and delivered flyers to most within a close proximity. We did get a couple of leads but nothing panned out. Say a Prayer.... that she is okay and will be found very soon! Amidala is 8 1/2 years old, gray and white long haired domestic cat with green eyes. She is an indoor pet and front declawed. Leia and Palmer are missing her too!!
