"Rack-ers," "Buddy"

Kitty Complexion:

Sun Sign:

Black and White

Besides sleeping, I LOVE to eat!!

People walking by me when I'm laying on the floor; not being fed on time

Favorite Toy:
Playing with toys is beneath my dignity

Favorite Nap Spot:
Every place is a good place to nap! I especially love the screen porch in the summer a.m., and mom and dad's bedroom window when the porch is too hot

Favorite Food:

Other than eating? Or sleeping?? No, not really.


Arrival Story:
A school janitor had kittens to give away - she told me she had a black and white one and I had been wanting a "tuxedo" cat. When I saw him, I was in love immediately!! We had no idea he was part Maine Coon or that he would grow to be so big!!

Shadrach is a champion "ignorer" - especially at the dinner table if you don't give him at least a taste of whatever human food we are eating. If you don't offer him a taste he gets up from his sitting position and turns his back on us and then sits back down. There he will sit until dinner if over. He loves pinto and kidney beans if you squish them between your fingers; he will eat green beans; he doesn't care for ground beef or anything - even chicken - cooked on the grill. Chicken is his favorite. He will stand on his back paws and pat my husband's hand to get a piece of chicken. One time he did this as we were saying grace, I just about cracked up in the middle of the prayer!

WHERE, WHERE? In my bowl and in my TUMMY!! Yum, Yum, YUMMY!!!

Our Hare-Today order came and while mom was packing everything up she "accidentally" dropped some duck hearts on my plate!! OH BOY DUCK!!!!! I ate my fill (I think 2 or 3 hearts), then went to take a bath and a nap while mom finished up with the hearts, pork trim, beef trim, and duck chunks. She put a few scraps of everything in a dish in the fridge for my bedtime snack tonight. Hmmmmm! I think "bedtime" might come early for me!

She is very pleased with the order, though there just seems to be a LOT of fat - especially the duck and the pork. I don't like fat very much, but she left more on this time than last because she knows how good the fat is for me. I'll hold my opinion on that for a while!

My powdered egg shell came today as well, so I guess I'll be having some of that on my food, just a sprinkle I think.

Maybe Hare-today will have some other meat in "trim" pieces like the pork and beef - goat, maybe?? Mom also found a new "hunting" type store that had opened up near here and she said she was going to check with them to see if they know anyone who processes deer and turkey so maybe I can get some venison and wild turkey.

She said, "Shadrach, you'll be a completely RAW FED cat eventually!"

By for now!!


My mom is LEAVING!!!

My mom is leaving tomorrow for THREE WEEKS!!! I know something is up because she has suitcases out and is running around the house like a crazy person!! I can tell when mom and dad get ready to leave me!!!

But, this time is different - dad will be home, but as I posted before, he said NO RAW FOOD while mom is gone. I hope I can survive!! Actually, dad is really my favorite parent (don't tell Mom!!) because he gives me food when ever I want it, AND, he doesn't weigh the food to make sure I don't get too much!!!

I will miss my mom though. She brushes me and pets me all the time and lets me sit in her study window. Sigh...I think three weeks is going to be a LONG time!!

Please send up pawrayers for my mom - she is driving to Philadelphia tomorrow afternoon. She will be in Phily for 5 days, then Gettysburg for 6, and then Washington DC for 7 days, then back to Philly to pick up the car and drive home on the 29th of July. She says it's an honor that she was chosen to go, but I think it's the pits that dad and I have to be alone for that long!! BUMMER!! OK, I'm happy for her - sort of!!


What the Heck?????

Tuesday it RAINED on my window table (and the blanket I lay on). Mom took my blanket outside to air dry, but forgot it over night. SO, she threw it in the dryer with a Lavender Vanilla dryer sheet!! Now what did she go and do THAT for???? She put it back on my table with no warning whatsoever! I jumped up to look out the window and jumped right back down again!! Dad about fell over laughing - BAD DADDY!!! Then, he laughed some more (AND called mom to watch too) as I sniffed and sniffed and sniffed this foreign object on my table. Not sure how long it's going to take me to get used to this - but mom better not do that EVER again!!

On another note, I have a new FAVORITE raw meat - DUCK!! WOW! That's some good stuff!! I'm even gnawing on the bones to get the meat off. Mom is SOOOOOO proud of me.

And MORE news (I'm just full of it today aren't I??).... mom leaves for 3 weeks in 10 days! BUMMER!! Especially because dad says I am ONLY getting canned food while she is gone!! Mom HOPES that she can get him to give me at least ONE meal a day of my raw meat. She says she's going to make it easy for him by having labeled baggies all set out in the freezer, but I don't can be pretty stubborn. Must be where I get it from.

well, mom says her fingers are tired!! BYE for NOW!!
