A while back I was shocked to hear that there was a tweeting blueberry. I couldn’t believe it. I mean obviously anipals can tweet, but Blueberries? Really? So then I did the only thing I could, I searched it out. Imagine my happy surprise when I learned that a Blueberry was not only on twitter, but also a CAT. Yep, my furiends, this week’s featured guest is none other than BlueberryCat.

Do you remember your life before finding you forever home?
Before I came to my forever home I lived with a couple that bred my kind of kitty - Devon Rex's. They were nice and tried their hardest to take good care of us all, (I was one of a litter of four). Unfortunately they both lost their jobs and the gentleman had health problems that caused him to go into the hospital. The couple decided that to give us the best possible life they would surrender us to a rescue agency.
Looks like love to me...
How did you find your forever home?
My forever home found me through the Washington/Oregon Devon Rex Rescue and Spinix too group. My mom and other human had adopted a girl Devon Rex named Sonya about a year before and learned what sweet, smart kitties we are. My mom felt that they had the room and ability to care for other kitties, so she called the rescue group to see if anyone needed a forever home. The rescue lady told mom about my situation AND that I have asthma so I may need extra care and vet visits down the line. Mom said no problem and set up things for me to come live here.

What’s your favorite thing about your adoptive family?
What I like best of my forever home is that there are other kitties to play with. Mom and other human are great about making sure we have everything we need from good food and great toys to comfy beds and warm laps. I really love to play fetch with a fuzzy ball. We all get our special pats and lovies. My forever home also has dogs - great big dogs! They used to be racing greyhounds but now they pretty much just sleep on the couch. Sometimes I'll sneak up and cuddle with one. When they go in the backyard I watch from the window, often they make up their own fun by racing each other! They may be retired but they are still really fast!
So far my asthma hasn't caused any problems other than it's hard to hide because everyone finds me by listening for my breathing. I didn't have very much of a coat when I first came here, Mom thinks that was maybe because of the food I had been eating and stress, but now I've grown more hairs with good food and lots of love. Mom and other human do think I'm just one of those kitties that won't have a super dense, fluffy coat.
Wow, what a great tale! How lucky is the Blueberry’s Mom, to have such a furiendly kitty?! I’m so glad that fate brought them together and that Blueberry has such a (big) and wonderful family. If you haven’t met Blueberry you should head over to twitter and introduce yourself. I know I’m sure lucky to have him as one my pals!
Blueberry, thank you for sharing your wonderful story! (Oh and how did you convince your Mom to get you some doggies? Henry want! Hehe)
Thanks for stopping by!
