In Memory of My Precious Angel "Mabel Ann"

January 21, 2002 - June 4, 2007

Mabel's Whiskers


Mabel Ann was my tortoise shell beauty with a little lightning streak of pink on her nose. She was anti-social with most, but we understood each other. After all, she was a fellow Aquarius. I would tell her she had "rabbit feet" like Thumper's and according to my Grandson, she had "boy ears".

May's nose would drip when she purred & got lovie dovie. Her dry cat food would become soggy after only a few bites. Mabes did this little ChaCha dance while her meals were being prepared, just like in the commercial.
My Ann was a mighty hunter & host of the busiest varmit B&B (Bird & Beast) in the south. Her more interesting guest list included: Peter Rabbit, who was bigger than she was; Slick the Snake (yes, snake, nonpoisonous, but still a snake); Poe the Crow; Chip 'n Dale (they stayed 3-4 days once) & every one of their relatives that live within a 9 acre radius; Woody Woodpeeker who was starring at me one day through the window when I was just getting home (I swear this bird had to be 12" long & I thought he might peck my eyes out while I was rescuing him, like in Hitchcock's "The Birds").

Her dirty little footprints (from drinking out of the potty) are still on the toilet seat in the laundry room. I can't bring myself to clean the seat.......

Molly, Daddy & I miss you sooooooo

She is with the angels.

She will be missed.
