Right now, hiding under the bed, under the sofa the big one where he will fit, behind the sofa, behind the chair, behind the curtains, in the laundry hamper & watching from hiding with big eyes.
He still hasn't gotten over being abandoned so he doesn't trust people much these days. Some day soon that will change.
The cords that draw the drapes open and closed, tassles on throw pillows, little objects like plastic bottle caps dropped on the floor, the ring from the milk lid.
Favorite Nap Spot:
Dark places. The laundry basket so far burrowed down into it.
People food of all kinds & he will run out of hiding to grab it and take whatever back with him. Likes dry cat food too, but he has to wait for people to sleep to eat it, for darkness to fall & lights to go out.
He's very good at hiding & sneaking around the house & popping out of unexpected places like closets & from under the kitchen sink cabinets.
But I live here! You can't evict me! What do you mean by new people are moving in? Where did my people go? Sure I saw them packing up boxes and cartons and suitcases but I've come back every day & even hung around for days waiting for them to come back for me. The house sure got empty. No people. No other cats. I watched as they gathered them up & loaded them up to go somewhere, something about rescue. They tried to ignore me part of the time wouldn't even look at me & said you'll be fine. Part of the time they smiled at me and petted me. Then they got in the cars & trucks and drove away. The neighbors remember. Well, they've done that before, called it vacation and someone always came over & fed me & gave me water the other times. They've even taken the other cats away "to board" and laughed about my self sufficiency & mooching & hunting skills but still there was someone to feed me. Not this time. Where are you? Why am I still here? Where did my people go, the kids, the teens, the adults?
So I've been hunting part of the time. Really I'm not a pirate but I had to become one ruthless to survive, stealing food from other cat's dishes outside, stealing from the dog food kept out in barrels well, big plastic trash cans, mooching from those I thought were safe, and hunting birds & mice & squirrels & rabbits when I could catch those but had to have food on my stomach to go after those as they take quite a bit of energy. Moles. Whatever I could find. Then these boys & teens started coming to see me & visit me and bring me food, glorious food. People food at first whatever they were having. They called me feral but gradually found out from the neighbors I was not that I was once loved and my people they said fell on hard times. The neighbors said they could have me if they could catch me -- and one day they did, grabbed me up in a pirate gunny sack okay well, a burlap laundry bag they called it impatient and tired of me running back under the porch under the house when they thought they were being clever and grabbed for me. Next thing I knew I was at a new home getting shots from some vet tech friend of theirs and a look over a trip to some mobile vet clinic and flea stuff all over my back and even on my tail! And a room of my own though I can get out I assure you and wander the house and explore my new land ship, my new home. But I'm still wary, unsure... when will they leave me too?

Need to go to many, many more events & not just because I want new pics but that's definitely a plus a positive that we get new pics! Oh, forgot to write about the swim party at Paw It Foward... well, just have to save that one for later as it's a great summer day & I have all kinds of things to do around the house like sneaking around and spying and people and hiding and sleeping and eating and purring and hiding and sleeping and napping. It's hot outside and I"m not allowed to go out, so anyways need to rest up for the party tonight. Don't want summer to end but it would be nice if the weather was a little better.
My character is Sully from Monsters Inc. so I'm a big guy just like in real life! I just love scaring people too just like Sully did originally in the movie! Sully whom Boo called "Kitty" and I'm a Kitty and I"m Sully! In real life I enjoy scaring people who come over and letting them know that it's my house, well mine and Morgan's house and that we patrol the place are the watch cats! Love it when they walk in & ask if possibly I am part tiger because I am just such a big guy with a big build and long legs and sharp claws and semi fangs for teeth. Well time for a nap so I can party tonight and I'm heavily nocturnal and enjoy prowling around at night...

Yes, I know I don't have that many entries yet or --- clears throat -- PHOTOS! Now don't get mad my human brothers that I took the pirate ship on the virtual cruise to Spain because that is the ONLY picture I have! Yes, I know it's summertime and you're out of school and there are so many other things to do and after all you are spending some time with me in real world time, but it takes some good head butts and nudges in the back to remind you to sit in front of the computer (hey there are rainy days and days too hot to go outside and you don't have to watch every DVD rental movie that Netflix has to offer you know!) and not just read groups stuff but play in the great imaginary world of Catster! Who is meowing this entry? No, it's not Dad it's your older brothers reminding you that you were the ones who insisted that you could keep up the cat diaries and you did just help update my fellow cat Arthur's diary but you're falling behind and maybe you need to walk the plank!
So yes, they ate a great deal at breakfast at Fancy Cafe on the Your Key to Happiness cruise lines aboard ship, but now we had no intention of plundering the ship or robbing the passengers although of course my crew of pirates sneaked onboard! Have you not read of the pirates plaguing the seas the oceans right now? So we're there in a more sort of protective function to battle off any pirates that might try to board the cruise ship! The pirates hung back in the tour of Madrid the ones allowed ashore and stopped off to eat and followed on behind at a run while we wheeled through on our segways. Must feed my crew and didn't want to attract too much attention from the shipping vessels by fishing in Spanish waters! Will revisit the trip in another entry although it may take a few head butts to the kids to get that done!
The Dread Pirate Roberts (aka Morgan) & pirate crew from Spain!

We went up or down to the mountains depending upon your perspective drove in the car and I "got" to ride in the cat carrier and so did my family furiend Arthur separate carriers. Our mreows and yowls and carryings on weren't completely ignored and we got to get out and stretch our legs -- on these harness and leash things! WE ARE cats! We do NOT wear leashes and harnesses. Oh the indignity, the humiliation! I'm sure other cats saw us. Our humans expected us to relieve ourselves in front of people on these stupid harness things. No privacy! How could they? But we did get to go up to these cabins out in the woods and stay and have a nice campfire outside a little one and not the big roaring bonfire the kids wanted but were we allowed to wander around free in this wooded paradise full of birds & squirrels and all kinds of good things to catch & eat? Oh no! Not us! We had these big folding pen things set up on the dirt and then when they noticed the grass and that's where we got to watch the game! But we did get some good things cooked over our carefully tended fire, just not the wild game we expected more like chicken legs and small fish not the huge ones they expected to catch and hotdogs though we didn't care much for those sticky roasted marshmallow things in the graham crackers with the peanut butter! No chocolate for us but yuck! That peanut butter just stays and stays in a cat's mouth. Well, off to look for pirate treasure!
