Cat Carson - Fader N Switches ( Funk78 & Deebiza Mix)
Cat is the adopted daughter of Howard and Geraldine Carson, though she didn't learn she was adopted until she was in her late teens. Cat's father was often working and didn't have much time for her, and her mother is very strict and conservative. When Cat was in her teens, her father began teaching her about sex and boys, which was actually a thinly veiled excuse to sexually abuse her. Cat felt ashamed and confused by these actions, as she knew little about sex and desperately wanted her father to love and notice her. Cat's father eventually raped her, after which he revealed he wasn't her biological father, devastating Cat and further confusing her. Understandably traumatised by these events, Cat suffered a nervous breakdown and was taken to hospital, where she revealed everything. Her mother divorced her father, though chose not to press charges and he disappeared. Cat was sent to Doctor Marlowe for therapy.
Immediately when Carson entered our home, he was not the affectionate, fun loving kitty we’d met in the shelter. He was out of his element. He hid under the bed for days and hissed anytime one of us entered the room. He would not let us near him. We consulted with the shelter volunteers, and they said he was shy. It would take time. But they also told us he had been very loving with the other cats in the shelter and that when a new kitty came in. Carson would take the frightened cat under his wing and care for it. We hoped he would be so patient with our Freya. He warmed up to us VERY slowly. Freya, of course, was very interested in who or what was behind the door. We tried visual contact with Freya, including treats, followed by carefully supervised visits. Things seemed to be going reasonably well, until one night when we thought they were safely separated, we heard terrible cat screams coming from Carson’s room. Freya had gotten in. They did not seem to be fighting, but Carson was very scared. He spent the next 24 hours with his head underneath a pillow. Meanwhile, Freya was more difficult and demanding than ever. She stopped using the litter box and eliminated all over the basement. Any spare time we had was taken up with managing cats. We started to talk about returning Carson to the shelter. We consulted with our vet repeatedly, and she doubted Freya's problem was biological (though she had not examined her since the litter box problem started). She thought Freya’s elimination problem was due to Carson's presence and doubted the two would ever be friends. She suggested several things we had already tried. She thought we might need to return Carson and also consider rehoming Freya, whose behavior problems she was familiar with. We were heartbroken and exhausted.
Carson Cats is dedicated to rescuing cats from the high kill shelter and are not discriminating of age, breed, or if FIV or FeLV positive. We don't turn cats away based on those things; however, we are not a "dumping" ground. We are in no position to take on personal pets that you can no longer keep, but we will offer to showcase them on our website and help market them. About Zsa Zsa and her white cat on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson... It was her for sure, and it most certainly DID happen, as it is one of the 'bits of business' etched into my brain, from the Show. I saw it with my own eyes; heard it with my own ears. I have to Fourth, everyone above: 'it happened exactly as mentioned.' No doubt about it: you should update this page on this interesting site. In regards to Zsa Zsa and her white cat on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson... it happened exactly as mentioned. There are many who say it didn't but my TV set, along with the millions of others whose TV sets received and displayed it, actually saw it with our own eyes, so those who are insistent that it didn't happen, couldn't have been watching, period. It happened, you didn't see it, doesn't mean it didn't happen, just means you didn't see it 'cause you went to the frig. for a beer. I saw the Johnny Carson show with the clip in question as well. I now know I'm not crazy (at least in this respect) because someone else commented that is was a white cat. The first time I can find someone mentioning the color of the cat. I remember it being a white cat as well. I even remember the cat laying down on her lap with the head being to the audience left. Yes, I saw it too. Zsa Zsa said, coyly, "Would you like to pet my pussy?" and Johnny replied, "Sure, if you'd get that damn cat off your lap!" It's been my favorite Johnny Carson moment ever since I saw it. I'm not crazy. I wasn't watching the show, but some kind of compilation of "Best of Carson" or something like that.By engaging and educating the community, the Carson Tahoe SPCA works to raise public awareness of the plight of homeless animals as well as realizing the benefits of adopting an animal in need.
