Flashback Friday—Snapshots in Time


Faith E. Girl aka Faith Edward Girl was TW’s first real four-legged pet. The family had gold fish but they never had a cat before Faith. Here are some facts about Faith.

  • She was part of a litter from a neighbor’s cat. They got her when she was six weeks old.
  • She never weighed more than seven lbs even though Gramma used to give her two six ounce cans of food a day.
  • She was addicted to turkey roll lunch meat—a quarter of a lb a day.
  • TW thinks she was part Abyssinian because of her ruddy coloring and her large ears.
  • She drank out of Gramma’s water cup at night. During the day, she’d jump up on the sink and wait for someone to turn the water on.
  • Gramma got her declawed because of some bad advice she was given by friends. It was a decision that she regretted until the day she died.
  • She was Gramma’s cat. Although she was pleasant to everyone, she adored Gramma and the feeling was mutual.
  • Faith was never sick a day in her life until she succumbed to cancer at 16 years of age.
Hope you enjoyed reading about our Faith E. Girl.

What a good tabby girl. Did she enjoy the goldfish? When I was growing up, my cat Esmerelda loved sitting in front of the aquarium watching fishy TV.

What special memories of Faith for you to share- thank you. She sounds like quite the ladycat who was excellent at training her humans. Gramma sure was lucky to have her and Faith lucky to have Gramma.

Gosh CK, she sounds like a dear girl who had her very own unique purrsonality and loved your Gramma a whole bunch. Sorry she got the big "C" - it's a horrid thing and we all hope it doesn't happen to us. We're sorry it happened to her.

Thanks for sharing.....
Hugs, Sammy

I love your story about Faith. How nice that you have photos! All the cats and all the years and so few pictures - and, they are pretty bad at that. (Not much has changed there, but hey, I'm still working on it.
