Blast From the Past: Hi From Amanda at Life with CH Cats

January 24, 2015

Hi all – Long time no post.

A dear friend reached out the other day, mentioning the lack of posts lately. I really appreciated it. It’s something I truly think about every day – including remembering all of you – however, due to all sorts of things, this blog has taken a back seat for a while. When the new year came and went, I toyed with the idea of resolving to post more often here. We’ll see how that pans out; perhaps this is a start.

Anyway, I just wanted to write a quick post to say, yes, I’m still here and think about all of you often. It’s impossible not to. Even though I may not be posting regularly, every moment of my life is filled with my being a cat mom to two wonderful CH kitties. It’s just a part of who I am – who we are – and perhaps the things that make us different (living with special needs cats) have become so second nature to me that I don’t think about them much any more.

But I want that to change. I know we all have stories and experiences to share – and I think even when these things become second nature, that can be encouraging to new CH cat parents, too. Geez, I hope this all makes sense.

I’ll try to craft another update soon – hopefully that will be a bit clearer. In the meantime, I hope you’re all doing very well.

    Your blog and the video of Charley is just wonderful. I’ve been a cat lover all my life but I also have a son, he’s 18 months old now, and he was born with the same rare brain disorder and has balance problems. Someday we hope to adopt a cat that is just like him. šŸ™‚

    Amanda – take care of you and your kitties and thank you for thinking of the other CH families out here. When the time is right, you’ll be back and we will be waiting. ā™„

    It’s good to have you back.
    Molly and I are still here too. Along with 7 other semi-brothers of hers. All black like her except for 1 he is an “oreo”. Black and white patches with a handlebar moustache and goatee. Fortunately for us none of the other ones have CH as Molly is a handful. She has gotten used to the kittens and interacts with them in her own way.
    It turns out she is moderately severe. But we love her dearly.
