My first 2 cats were both male and I never had much of a problem with either of them. I could even have a Christmas tree without them bothering it. (O_o) In fact, Obie had a "big" personality, too. He had a bent ear from scar tissue (hence his name, Ol' Bent-Ear) when he invited himself in at around age 10. He'd also been neutered and de-clawed in the front by then and then he lost the sight in one eye when he'd been with me for a couple of years. I always referred to him as "having one eye, one ear, only two sets of claws, and no balls but still being one hell of a cat." He was also "the cat who swallowed a cantaloupe" after he'd been with me a while. Tall, long, and lanky, but with a bigger belly than when he was a stray. Never really seen a cat put on just a pot belly like a human's before. He also had to have some Siamese in him, even though he was all black, because of the angular shape of his head and his propensity to "talk," loudly and rather obnoxiously. But boy did I love him. I've had two males since then, each at the same time as females, and they've been... problematic... shall we say. Or jerks. Yeah, "jerks" would work. I've found out over the years that they were just being boy kitties and that I'd happened to stumble across 2 of the most mellow male cats on the planet in my first 2, so I cut the current one slack. But while we had an all-female collection of 4 things were amazingly calm in comparison. So... maybe Cookie will lead a quiet life? I hope that in the future you can look back with as much fondness for Mr. Blue as I do for Obie but without the deep sorrow you feel now. It takes a long time, but it can happen. (((Hugs)))
I was catching up with Em63 and saw your note about Mr. Blue and my hearfelt sympathies. And also saw Ming :) your new, beautiful Siamese rescue. Bryan and my very first cat together was a Siames mix - much darker coloring but same kind of markings. She was a very loving cat. Will post both LOLs to DrTC.
I also had a Siamese growing up. His name was Ginger, after my favorite 'cookie'. Wanted to name Romeo after a spice too, but couldn't come up with one. I have a client who has 3 Meezers. A seal point, a flame point, and a blue point.
My heart just dropped to my feet from your last message. A few years ago when I had MY Siamese Ko-Ko, my Mother used to say, "I hope I'm not around when you lose that cat, you are going to be JUST SICK!!" Well, she died in 2006, and 3 weeks after she died, my Ko-Ko was diagnosed with Cancer. Once we got Romeo, I learned he was born right on her birthday. Plus he's got Mom's personality, goofy, but loves everybody. She just loved my Siamese. A part of me feels he was a gift from heaven. Now you tell me that you have a Meezer that looked exactly like my Ko-Ko AND my Romeo when they were kittens, and to top that off, you named your kitty Cookie. I actually wanted that name for Romeo, but the other half refused. Cookie was a nickname, given to my Mother in early years. Her maiden name was Cook, and all through the years she was called Cookie. In fact, I NEVER heard my Dad call my Mom by her name. It was always Cookie. Kind of eerie, huh? So sorry about Mr. Blue. You must have been devistated. What's new with you? How's Hubby doing?? Please tell him I said hi.
Oh noez... I just learned of your loss of Mr. Blue. I'm so sorry! It's so very hard to lose a close friend. But I'm so very glad you have a new friend! I know she'll never replace Mr. Blue, but who says we can't have lots and lots of friends? (((Hugs))) for you and ~pat-pat-pat~ for Cookie. >^..^< (Hope I spelled that right.)
