Arrival Story: We just wanted another kitten, and ended up with two (Victoria the Ragdoll joined us, too)
Bio: Bear came to us from Kashi Saga cattery. His full name is Kashi Saga Pirate Torbjorn. Showing a cat was on my "bucket list," so Bear was groomed and primped and went to cat shows for about a year. He won quite a few ribbons, but gradually grew to dislike being judged (can't blame him there!) After he hissed at several judges and took a swipe at one, I got the hint. Bear is a gorgeous example of his breed, but he doesn't need a ribbon or a trophy to prove it!
Jasper tagged me on the spring game, so here goes.
Five Things I Like About Spring:
1. Momma Mouse moves into the cellar and starts having litters. Fun for me!!
2. Ants and ladybugs and cave crickets to hunt in the house.
3. We get to spend some time on the screened porch.
4. Chirping birdies and scampering chipmunks to watch from the windowsill.
5. The best of all: Walks in the yard on my leash!
I visited Mom in bed at an ungodly early hour this morning. She was sleepy and scratched my ears and told me it was still dark and not time to get up yet. Then she went back to sleep.
Well, heck, I knew it wasn't time to get up yet. But I had to wait for the sun to come up before she finally opened her eyes and got out of bed. Then she turned around to make the bed and discovered that she had been sleeping on the lovely little mouse I brought her as a present earlier.
