Mom says she misses him as much as she has grown to love me. I guess that is a good thing..? And she is glad to have a kitten in her life again. At least she isn't as nervous as she used to be!! Personally, I think her nervousness has been replaced by a great sense of guilt for having to leave me all day while she's at work. See, she is done her internship now, but was quickly grabbed for a long term supply position that is for the rest of the school year. She wasn't even on the supply list yet for that school district!! Great for pay cheques rolling in, but bad for quality time together. We're both looking forward to the summer now for that very reason! She will still have to work, but at least she will not have to take extra time at home to lesson plan, mark work, tests, attend meetings, workshops, conferences, etc. She misses the kids she had during her internship as difficult as the class could be. They all gave her nice cards when she left, and the supply teacher that was in on a day she was away for an interview decided to create student evaluations. Mom was almost scared to look at them (because she had to use so much discipline - in a reasonable and fair manner of course), but was very impressed and touched by all their comments. She was teary the day she left and some of the kids even cried and told her she couldn't leave. She realized that she really did make some differences in some kids lives. She will certainly never forget them.
Anyway, back to me, I do like living here!! I have sooo many toys to play with!!
Some really nice comments from the kids:
"My favourite memory of Ms. **** is that she was so nice and very easy to understand too."
"She was a great teacher and very nice. She was my favourite!"
"Ms. **** was great at teaching and always did really fun things with us."
"My favourite memory of MS. **** is always!"
"She was always really good at listening to me when I had problems. I won't forget you. You were the best!"
"My favourite memory is when she was teaching us."
"She is so much fun and was an extremely good teacher. I think she will be a good teacher."
"She is the best teacher in the world!"

Guess what! I got new toys last night and Auntie came over today to meet me and brought me toys too!! I think I'm going to like it here!! There are sooooo many things to play with!! Mind you, I still think biting Mom's fingers and toes is more fun (she disagrees!)
Well, tomorrow is v-e-t day. I will update again tomorrow about that dreaded visit! Poor Grandma has it worse than I do though. :( She is very sick right now and had to go to the hospital by ambulance! :( I hope she feels better soon! Please send good vibes for her...

I'm starting to adjust nicely to my new home! I'm not as jumpy or nervous now. As a matter of fact, Mom says that I have turned into a real Evel Knievel! I love to jump when I'm being handled and Mom says it's a big surprise, I haven't broken my legs yet (especially on the hard kitchen floor). It is hard to catch me before I decide to perform one of my stunts! I'm also a total kluts and Mom has had to clean up after me several times for knocking over food and water dishes and I run into things.
I'm also part puppy because I love to follow Mom around the apartment, and I carry my toys around in my mouth. I don't know how to fetch yet, but Mom is thinking of trying to teach me. For now, I just like dragging my toys to my favourite areas.
I'm a real purring machine now, and I LOVE to cuddle (especially at night in bed!!!)
Anyway, Mom mentionned some terrible "v" word today. She said I have to go to the vet on Friday for a general checkup and possible vaccinations. Doesn't that mean needles?? She assured me that I will like the nice doctor. It may be the same vet who put big brother Fluffy down.

Today, I cleared his eating area and put everything away. It's so empty now. Perhaps I acted too quickly on this. I also dug out some of his pictures from happier and younger days. Tonight was the last night for burning his candle (until the 1 year anniversary). And now the "magic" is gone.
It is all too clear now that my little boy is not coming back. He is gone forever. And now it is time for me to go to sleep in my empty bed.
I have some videos of Mr. Fluffy from when he was a kitten, but they are in VHS format at my mom's house. I will try my best to upload them to my pc and post them on here. They are priceless!
I miss my special little guy more than words can say. Tonight is extra special as it is the last night I will be burning his candle (Night 16).
You are welcome to save this video of him.
