Darling Millie



There are so many things to say about Millie that I could just go on and on, but I will try to keep this fairly short. Last June Malcolm found a tiny black and white kitty in the road who had been hit by a car. Unable to locate an owner, he took the kitten to the vet and agreed to pay the bill. The poor little kitten had a shattered right rear leg and had to have a titanium rod put in so she could walk again. Even with the vet giving Malcolm a big "Good Samaritan" discount, this ran the bill up to $1300 which was really more than Malcolm could afford. Malcolm's plight, and the kitten's, was brought to the attention of the Cat Blogosphere and the money was raised to pay the bill. The members of the Cat Blogosphere also found the kitten a home and named her Millie, for the thousand dollars it took to make her well again. Now she lives with Jasmine and Gizzy and the Lady Mom and you would never know that she had been injured. Millie was very shy to begin with and it was months before she would let Lady Mom touch her, but by last Christmas, she was accepting petting. Jasmine still doesn't like Millie at all, but Gizzy took to her fairly quickly and lets her snuggle with him, but being an older cat, he's not much for playing with her. Millie has made her own fun and last Christmas she discovered the greatest cat toy ever.

Millie climbed the Christmas tree,
All the pretties for to see.
She wouldn't stop
'Til she got to the top
Of the beautiful Christmas tree.

Millie looks great in the tree. We only climbed the Christmas tree when we were kittens.

We enjoy your limericks.

Oh, Millie you got to climb the Christmas tree. Bet that was fun. I'm not allowed to do that. Besides what we have is not a real one. Mom loves real trees but the last few years they went so high in price she brought out the fake one. One thing about the fake tree, it has all the lights already on it and I don't hear Mom say bad things when she is decorating it. You look cute in the tree. The limerick sure does fit you.
