Misha - Found Kitten
Jan 1, 2017

I am looking for a home for an adorable male kitten, in North Raleigh, NC. UPDATE: Jan 25, 2017 Misha has a new home! I'm so happy for him, but it's hard on me. Wish I could have kept him and I'll really miss him. But this is the best for him. Good news, his new home is also in my apartment complex, so I'll be able to see him occasionally and watch him grow up.

For any who might still like to see photos of Misha, here is his story:

On Jan 3, 2017, I opened my patio door and was greeted by the scream of a young kitten. My vet estimated his age at 10-12 weeks old. He was malnourished with a few ear mites but otherwise healthy. Attempts to find an owner have come up empty and it is felt that he was likely tossed out by someone who didn't want him.
He does not act feral at all. He loves people and is very affectionate. He is solid blue (grey) with almost silver highlights, similar to a Russian Blue cat. I've temporarily named him "Misha" (MEE sha) the Russian diminutive for "Michael". Since he looks a bit like a Russian Blue ... and I learned that the breed was initially called "Archangel Cats" after the Archangel area of NW Russia where they originated ... I decided to name him after the Archangel Michael. He is truly an angel and so sweet.
The day he was found, he weighed just 2.37 lbs ... now (3 weeks later), he is up to a little over 4 lbs and is very healthy and active. He tested negative for the feline viruses FeLV and FIV ... and, currently, has had one core vaccination (FVRCP). He's been wormed (though his fecal did not show any worms) and has been treated for a mild case of ear mites.
Misha is such a good kitten. He uses the litterbox perfectly, loves to play but settles down and is very quiet. He doesn't wake me up in the morning and likes to cuddle at night. He wants to make friends with my other cats, but all hiss at him, except one who just ignores him. I think Misha would do well with other cats and would love to have another kitten to play with. He loves my cat tree and uses it and some cardboard scratchers ... and has not scratched at any furniture. He may do well with children, but probably better with older children who will be gentle with him. He naturally (and amazingly) is "soft-pawed", i.e. when playing, and if he bats at a human hand (though playing with hands is not encouraged) ... he ALWAYS keeps his claws in. He does not bite and has never scratched me even in play (or when I put drops in his ears).
Misha deserves a wonderful home. I would love to keep him ... but besides the one cat that I "own" (who hates all other cats, including Misha) ... I care for the apartment complex's three "community cats" ... and I can't really afford them either.
Anyone interested in adopting Misha (preferably in [North] Raleigh, NC), please contact me at: srstephanie@yahoo.com

Claire's Ultrasound - July 2016
Jul 20, 2016

Photos of Claire's abdominal ultrasound, done on Wed, 20 July 2016. She has had apparent cystitis. The ultrasound seems to show also intestinal lymphoma/IBD. Claire is a blue-cream and white domestic shorthair cat (van pattern: all white with color on tail and top of head). She is an unowned "apartment complex cat", thought to have been tossed out when someone moved from the complex. She is quite elderly, is missing one upper canine tooth, has almost no hip sockets left, can't jump or run full out. But she is a very sweet cat who loves to be rubbed on the side of her face, as she kisses your hand.

Lisabelle 2010 - Jan to June - 7 months to 1 yr old

Photos of my RagaMuffin kitten, Lisabelle, from Encore RagaMuffins cattery in Kentucky. Lisabelle is ...more

a blue-cream and white (dilute tortie & white) pedigree RagaMuffin. She is a gift to me from my dear friend Janet Klarmann, a Founding Breeder of the RagaMuffin. Our beloved Janet died on April 2, 2010 from cancer and the whole RagaMuffin world mourns.

Lisabelle came to me in November 2009 when she was 22 weeks old. The photos in this album were taken between January & June 2010. Lisabelle turns 1 year old on June 10, 2010. The photos are arranged with the most recent ones first, going back to January at the end. The Trimline soft e-collar was on after she was spayed and wouldn't leave her stitches alone.

Photos from my tonsure as a Stavrophor Nun in the Orthodox Church in America at The Sign of the Theotokos Orthodox Church in Montreal, QC Canada by His Grace Bishop Seraphim on Saturday, 3 March 2007. This album is a selection of the photos taken. Because many of my friends are not Orthodox Christians, I have included rather extensive commentary to help explain what is taking place.

Monastic Tonsure - All Photos
Mar 3, 2007

Photos from my tonsure as a Stavrophor Nun in the Orthodox Church in America at The Sign of the Theotokos Orthodox Church in Montreal, QC Canada by His Grace Bishop Seraphim on Saturday, 3 March 2007. This album contains most of the photos taken for those who want the whole, blow by blow, experience. Many of the pictures appear twice, once as the original, and then cropped to give the appearance of zooming in. Because many of my friends are not Orthodox Christians, I have included rather extensive commentary to help explain what is taking place.
