The 411 on The Sock

speaks thru side of mouth *why does she insist on doing this*
*do you hear that??? it sounds like, somethings coming!*
*Not another flaming photo shoot MUUUUUUUUUUUUMMMMMMMM*

You haven't all be introduced properly to Sockies. So I thought I'd fill you all in.

This is Sockies *I named her this as she has 4 white paws and looks like shes wearing socks.... original I know but hey i was in grade 8 :) She could have also been named Tuxedo because she looks likes she's wearing one.

Alternate Names: The Sock, Socky Bear, Junior, Junior Asparagus, Socko, Moggylena I could go on.
Favourite Pasttimes: Sleeping, Eating, sleeping, sitting on my lap surfing the net, sleeping.

Pet Peeves: Loud noises, Tinfoil, the vacuum, people other than family, any animal, opening the garbage can.

Loves: Lying bell up in front of the fire, food, sleep, wool sweaters being stroked, a good hin or bum rub.

Ailments: Has diabetes, needs a needle daily and special food. Isn't too energetic anymore. Her ankles crack when she walks now heheh awww she's getting old!

Age: 9 almost 10

So there you have it, this is my baby, I've had her since I was in grade 8. When she was diagnosed with Diabetes she had to go to the vet every other week so they could figure out what insulin dosage to give her. I cried when they went to stick the thermometer up her bum and had to leave the room :) I dispise needles but have learned to give them to her, she even lies down for them now.... I cried during that process too. I HATED leaving her overnight at the vets and would fight with them to let me bring her home. When they figured out what was wrong with her I cried on the couch some more. After getting married we both moved in with Moose :) He didn't really want 2 roomies but now *even though he won't admit it* he loves her. She's part of our little family.

I would do anything in the world for this cat, she is my life. After all how could you NOT love a face like that. I don't even want to think about what will happen to me when its her time to go, Moose says I'll go into depression which I'm sure is true. I just can't imagine living without her.

So there you have it, the 411 on The Sock! *She's sitting purring away on my knee right now and doesn't like the fact that I'm adding about her getting a thermometer up her bum but I'm sure she'll get over it.*

Awww, there's nothing like having a cat who loves you and likes to be pet and loved on. :)

Hi Sockies!! Take good care of your mum and humour her about the camera. :)

I love her black nose - it's almost startling in her grey face!

Oh, she looks exactly like the cat I had growing up. Her name was Quesel and she passed away about four years ago. She was 22 and I loved her so much. Give The Sock a hug for me on behalf of my late Quesel.
