(the two dogs on the left in the picture below, Vega, the Shepard-Rottie is still alive and well)
Thank you for all you are doing,  I know the animals appreciate it!"

Never underestimate the power of love and bottle baby cats. Pirate was only about 4 days old when he was found, tossed away like trash, in a dumpster.  He was saved by a Lifeline For Pets volunteer and hand raised (bottle fed). I got him when he was about 8 weeks old.  It is because of this cat that I became an animal rescue volunteer, first with Lifeline For Pets and now with Precious Paws.

Pirate was the sweetest cat.  He viewed me as mom. Pirate was cat Number One. The family favorite.  And he knew it.  But he did let the Maine Coon in him take control when it was time for defense. Maine Coons are very dog like - protective, dedicated, etc.   My son was 11 when we got Pirate.  They were best buds!  As a family learning to live with divorce, both my son and I could count on Pirate coming to us when we felt sad, lonely or just needed someone to hug.

Pirate has had feline asthma most of his life. In 2004 he was diagnosed with a Thyroid problem and placed on medication to control that. Pirate also had LPGS - find out about that here... LPGS INFO.  It was the LPGS that caused him to suffer the most.  


I wrote the following note to my son & his wife on the morning of March 7, 2005.....

In the quiet of the night our Pirate set sail Without Us...

With Us,

In the quiet of the evening.....
we shared our sadness and pain,
we shared our hopes and happiness,
we shared our dreams and we shared our secrets.

Pirate always supported us. 

We will treasure our memories. 
No creature, on four or two feet,
will ever provide us with such dedicated,
everlasting and unconditional love.

Like a true Pirate,

He stole our Hearts and Brought us pure Gold.
Set Sail and Rest now Dear Pirate,
For One Day we will all Play Together Again.

Yours In Purrs.

"She was such a bitch but I loved her more than anything in the world"
1993  -  2008

 I can't believe how many years have already passed.
I still miss her so much, even doing rescue there has never ever been a cat like my Gidget to me.
I went into the Burbank Shelter in 1993 and this kitten reached out and grabbed my arm... and talked to me...
I don't know what she said, but I think it was I want to go home with you...
If she wanted something else.. oh well... she got me anyway... for almost 15 years...
Spoiled rotten she was.... I miss her so much.
