An Update From Alexa

Guess what we got in our inbox today? A wonderful email from Alexa's mom, Kelly, and a few words from Alexa herself! Here's what she had to say:


It’s Alexa – I just wanted to let you know how I am doing. Life is great! After spending a few days hiding (I was pretty scared) I found out just how fun life can be. There are so many neat places to explore and fun things to play with. My favorite toys are my catnip mouse which I can throw into the air and catch again (although sometimes I throw it too high and it gets stuck on a high shelf and someone has to get it for me) and my laser pointer. I follow that little red dot all over the house. My new parents have found that the pointer is especially useful when I sit in front of the tv and swat at the screen to play with the people in there. Oh! I almost forgot about my newly discovered built in toy – my tail! That is so much fun, but I just can’t seem to catch it - I’m still working on that one. I have also found my voice and I am not afraid to use it. I learned that when I yell (which I am doing a lot of nowadays) someone will sit down and give me attention! How nice it is to be spoiled.

I am very adventurous now. I love to explore and find new places to sit. My new favorite place is the top of the door. As you can see only having one eye is not making any difference to me at all – I can still do everything that any other cat can do! It is pictures like this one that prompted my nickname “headlight”.

I have discovered just how comfortable life can be. I have a bed to sleep in, but lately I prefer to sleep in bed with my parents and the dog. Although I am not a big fan of the dog (she’s always trying to play with me and lick me – yuck!), she is very warm at night so sometimes I curl up next to her and purr. I am also becoming a very good lap cat. If you sit down, you better have your lap ready because I’m coming too!

I just wanted to let you know that I am doing great! I may have had a rough start, but I am definitely making up for lost time now. Thanks for saving my life and taking care of me – now I get to enjoy it! See the windows behind me? They keep telling me that the birds are coming soon so I am keeping watch.

Now if I could just find a way to get them...


We love you too, Alexa, and we're so happy for you and your family.
