HI there! I am the infamous Sabeen Marie. I am a Torbie with White and very frisky. Momma calls me fresh and my favorite thing to do is argue with her! I have tons of Torbie-tude and Momma sighs at me all the time. She must say my name a thousand times a day! She takes good care of me and I love her but I have an agenda. I have to make sure everything is as it should be in my kitty kingdom. Breakfast must be served on time and supper when I ask for it. If Momma stays up too late I must go get her and let her know I am tired. Momma over sleeps some times and it is my duty to make sure she gets up for work. She says work is how I get nice things and lots of food and treats so she must get up and go!
I came to live with Momma and that Keena Kitty in March of 1996. I lived with a nice lady named Holly for a few months before that. Auntie Holly rescued me from the streets where I had to fight and kill for food. I don’t remember much about that time now. I don’t think I want to anyway. Momma said she would keep me if I was a good kitty and Keena didn’t mind. I turned on my Torbie charm when I got here and before you know it I had a new home. Keena didn’t like me but Momma said I was so cute she would keep trying to make us play nice. Well, it didn’t work and we still fight.
I have toys now, and lots of food, and kitty treats, and cat trees to play on. I sleep with Momma when she first goes to bed so she can fall asleep listening to me purr. I have a great purr. I wear a pretty pink collar with my name and phone number on it and a little tinkle bell. I went into fits when Momma wouldn’t let me outside. She tried to get me used to a leash and harness but I would have none of that! I was bad and scratched Momma very badly. She had to wear bandages for many weeks on her palm cause I dug deep down. After that Momma let me go outside like I wanted. I don’t go very far but I need to patrol to keep the Bad Kitty from next door away.
He got me once though and I got very sick. It hurt a lot to sit down and Momma said I was hissing at my butt. I had a very high fever and Momma was very upset. She took me to TED (the Evil Doctor) who made me sleep and fixed it. She shaved off my beautiful fur all over my butt and some of my beautiful tail too. I had to wear a funny plastic collar and it was very humiliating. I couldn’t climb the stairs because I couldn’t see where I was going so Momma had to take me up and down.
I am just fine now and when I go to TED she reminds me it’s not nice to fight with the Bad Kitty. So I just pick on my sisfur mostly now. Momma gets mad but it’s on my agenda. Pick on Keena. Number four on the list. Also on my agenda is bring home presents for Momma. Momma gets very mad when I do that so I try not to anymore.
French Toast came to live here in may of 2001. We had a rough start and while we'll never be the best of friends we make Momma happy and do nose touches once in a while.
June 2007: I have FORL on my teeth and had to have three removed. I did really well and the TED that did the extractions is a dental specialist. He gave Momma pictures and x-rays to show what he had done which Mom thought was cool. She declined to take my teeth fragments home though so the tooth fairy isn't coming! Wahhh!
March 2008: Momma found a bump on me in January so I had an aspirate of it. It is on my right side. TED says I have a mast cell tumor just like Keena had. I had surgery in May and TED got it all! Only thing is I have another bump on my head. TED did some x-rays and my lungs and stuff are clear so it hasn't spread. I had a dental at the same time and I have three more teeth that are starting to show FORL. *sigh*
July 2009: Very sad here. Our sisfur got real sick and had to go to the Bridge. We know she is ok there and though we didn't really get along it is strange without her. We know we will meet again.
April 2010: *sigh* More toofies had to come out. I lost a fang this time and it feels real funny. My dentist said there are more that show signs of FORL but they are ok and I shouldn't need to have any more out. the dentist said they should last me the rest of my life and I'm glad about that! I hate havin toofies out! Oh, and no toof fairy again. Meh.
September 2010: Well, the vettie says I got the kidney disease and I lost weight. That makes Momma sad but she knows it's part of getting older. I won't eat the kidney foods in the can and the dry food is yucky but once in a while I will have a taste. Momma says as long as I eat I should be happy and she gives me what I want. I take Pepcid when my tummy doesn't feel good...Momma puts it in a pill pocket which is the only way I will take it. Since I don't chew I don't even know it's there...or so she tinks.
She takes away all the fun
Well, time for a nice kitty nap...number six on my list for today. Thank you for stopping by and please look at the beautiful pictures of my beautiful self that follow. See ya!
Momma, I really don't think this is my best side.
What?! I'm just sitting here!
Here I am as Princess of the Month for January 2001. My jewels are so pretty and Momma even let me wear earrings!
And here is my award. Thank you Princess Hope!
And we haven't gotten to go out in several years so I sleep on the bed most of the day. Boooring!
But the bed is best on my towel...it would be better with treats though.

Sabeen has gone to be a Bridge Angel. She was having trouble eating and I suspected her teeth again. She had a tumor under her tongue and her surgeon couldn't help her. I chose to not wake her up.
