    Crookie

    Hello there Crookie is my cat, I was posting his pictures on deviantART and someone suggested I nominate him for here. For a bit more info on him, after he had his stroke we had to re-teach him to eat, walk, and just to be a cat. IT started with us feeding milk through a dropper. We know at that time he was not getting enough nutrition from just the canned milk, so my fiance got out a pork roast we were saving in the fridge to make into a salad. He cut off all the fat and cut them into tiny pieces. Crookie was able to eat it and practically took fingers off in the process even though he could not move his head around.

    Right after the stroke while he was still "stiff" as a board we spent I think it was 2 days just talking to him and we had him sleep between the two of us. We finally wrapped him in a heated blanket and left him alone for about 4 hours and when we came back in (thinking he'd probably died) we found that he was no longer stiff and he wasn't able to move any part of him on his own.

    HE still has his neck kinda crooked, you can see it when he walks it's slightly tilted to the side. IT was a lot more pronounced when he was still a kitten.

    Gorgeous orange Crookie!

    Good morning, beautiful orangey Crookshanks! I am so sorry you were ill, and I'm very glad you have regained your health! You have an important duty as the garden watch cat, and an even more important one as the filler of laps and in-between sleeping kitty! I would love to pet your fluffy coat, because it looks verrrrry nice and soft! You were a most adorable kitten and now you are a stunning orangey, with your golden eyes. Happy, happy Cat of the Day to you, gorgeous Crookie!
    I've been Boo'd ... right off the stage!

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!


    "That's the power of kittens (and puppies too, of course): They can reduce us to quivering masses of Jell-O in about two seconds flat and make us like it. Good thing they don't have opposable thumbs or they'd surely have taken over the world by now." -- Paul Lukas

    Dearest Crookie, what a sweet, beautiful kitty you are! And what a stunning story, about your stroke when you were very young and all the efforts your devoted Humans took to keep you alive and nurse you back to health. How wonderful that they discovered the magic taste and recuperative properties of pork fat, after your jaws were moistened with milk from a dropper! Clearly you all have been present for a miracle!

    To Crookie's Humans: Thank you SO VERY MUCH for saving this delightful boy! God bless you all, human and feline.

    Crookie, dear, we are so glad you survived and are doing so well now, keeping the garden squirrel-free and nestling down between your Purrrents in bed, just as you did when you were so ill and they were taking such good care of you.

    Congratulations, darling Crookie, on being selected today's Cat of the Day! We hope that you and your whole family are enjoying a wonderful day of celebration, full of fun and lovies and all your favorite toys and treats, maybe even some more pork fat as you relax on a lap or two.

    I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
    Death thought about it.
    "Cats," he said eventually. "Cats are nice."

    Crookie

    What wonderful people you are, not giving up on this sweet guy! He was a beautiful baby and is quite a handsome adult. It's so heartwarming to see the lengths people will go to to save their pets; thank you for being two of those people. And Crookie, an extremely happy COTD is wished to you, more than to any other cat I have said this to in the past!
