Posie departed for the Rainbow Bridge in April of 2015 but that doesn't mean she isn't still a part of The B Team, she left a great big paw-print on our hearts.
8 Things About Angel Posie
1. Posie arrived at BBHQ in the Spring of 2000. The P.A. went to the rescue to see Posie, who was described as; not suitable for rehoming as she was a little aggressive. She'd been a Christmas kitten and obviously soon after the festive novelties wore off, poor Posie found herself homeless. She was found on an inner-city housing estate looking rather bedraggled and in a bit of a bad temper.
The P.A. remembered the first time she saw Posie, although she can't remember the name the rescue gave her. The P.A. said she looked really grubby and was rather feisty and vocal in her outdoor pen, there was no chance of any interaction at all. Who knows what had happened to her, but from her behaviour, it couldn't have been very nice. Anyhoo, long story short, the P.A. brought her home as she knew that this little cat didn't have a chance of getting a home.
8. Posie was such a pretty cat with the most amazing golden eyes. We miss her feisty, diva-esque ways, and we miss her cuteness because she was adorable, bad-tempered but totally adorable!
TOP SECRET BONUS INTEL
Posie was terrible to crate, so the one thing Dad and the P.A. don't miss is trips to the vet with the whirling dervish. The P.A. would wear thick leather gauntlets to wear while getting her into the crate or box. Over the years they tried all types of crates; front loaders, side loaders, top loaders. Wire ones so it wasn't so confining, also bags with mesh sides and top. Posie hated each and every one with a passion.
Also, the P.A. would take the gloves with her to the vet and wear them during the visit. Better that than scratched hands if Posie decided she didn't like that particular vet, on that day.
She also had lots of names: Flumpy, The Flumpster, Pose, Miss Grizzle, Grizzelda, Princess Powderpuff, just to name a few! MOL
Although Posie was a feisty diva, we're just glad that after a really rough start in life, she got a forever home on her terms.
