I admit it. I’ve been a handful since I was adopted with my sisfur, Natasha, last December. I’ve climbed the walls, chewed electrical cords, and shredded paper all over the house. I had to spend more than a few nights in the spare bedroom because I kept Mama and Daddy awake all night by running across the bed and scratching on the blankets while they are trying to sleep.

But lately I’ve been a mellow little boy. I follow Mama around the house like a little puppy dog, I’ve stopped chewing cords, and I look forward to going outside in my pet stroller. I’m sleeping through the night, well, at least until 4 a.m., and I don’t cause as much trouble as I used to. Mama still hides the trash bins every time she leaves the house, but that’s just because I get bored if no one is around.

I’m almost 7 months old now, so I think I am starting to mellow a little bit. Mama knew I was a special kitty when she first met me. She keeps telling Daddy that as soon as I get a little bit older, I will be a good little kitty. Well, I AM a good little kitty right now; I’m just a little mischievous. One of our kitty friends told us that greater activity level = greater curiosity = greater intelligence. Well, if that is the case, I am one smart kitty – MOL!

Love, Sammy


Gee, Thanks!

Wowee, I just received my first Catster honor ever today – Diary of the Day!

I had a feeling something good was going to happen to me today. I ran across Mommy’s pillow this morning at 4 a.m. and tried to tell her “Mommy, mommy, check your catputer, I think Catster is trying to tell me something!" but Mommy wouldn’t listen to me, she just rolled over and went back to sleep! When she finally got up at 5:30 a.m., she had to rush off to work and couldn’t check her messages until later. We almost missed it! Next time I hope Mommy listens to me.

Thank you Catster for this cool honor and thank you to all my pawsome friends who took the time to stop by my page today to concatulate me! It sure has been fun!

Happy purrs,


First Stroll

I did it!!! I went for my first ride in my pet stroller! Mommy has been waiting for the perfect opportunity and today was it! She has had the pet stroller out for weeks now hoping that Natasha and I would sniff it, explore it, and get comfortable with it.

Luke and Tully stroll all the time. Tully even runs to his stroller if he thinks he has an opportunity to go outside in it. Well, I showed him I could do it, too. Mom scooped me up while I was sniffing the stroller and zipped me inside. She waited, not knowing how I would react to being enclosed in a compartment. I do not like to be confined in any way and I will actually throw a huge hissy fit if Mom puts me in a cat carrier. This was different. I sensed that this was something good. We went out in the backyard at first in the stroller and I looked all around. I smelled the spring blossoms. I heard birds chirping and squirrels chattering. It was very interesting!

Mom wheeled me through the side gate and we went to the front yard. Then she started walking down the street with me in the stroller. It was very exciting! There were so many new sights and sounds. I looked all around and seemed comfortable so Mom kept walking. We went around an entire block! Mom was so happy when we got back home, she couldn’t stop praising me for my bravery. I think I’m going to like strolling!

Excited purrs, Sammy


Weekend Adventure

Mom and Dad put our cat toys and furniture into that giant moving house again this weekend and took us camping. I’m not sure I like the moving part, but it was fun once we got there. The sun was nice and warm and there was a sea breeze. The windows were open and I got to watch the birdies. There were some doggies in the camp site next to us so I watched them, too. I hid behind the sofa in the moving house when it was time to leave and Mom and Dad had a heck of time getting me out. I like houses that don’t move the best.

Oh no, Mom and Dad are talking about going somewhere next weekend in the moving house again…let’s see, where can I hide this time…

Love, Sammy


Newman to the Rescue!

Three cheers for Newman! He wrote a diary entry entitled "Step Away from the Squirt Bottle!" I think he must have read my previous diary entry where I talked about Mom squirting me with water to prevent me from chewing on wires.

You see, I am a naughty little orangie kitten. It goes with the territory. I’m cute as a button, but boy do I like to cause trouble! I climb walls, shred paper, chew electrical cords, and cause trouble wherever I go. Mom was getting frustrated with me. She decided to try the squirt bottle as a last resort to see if she could deter me from chewing. Well, Newmie says that’s not a good idea. I’m quoting his diary entry:

“Squirt Bottles are a Terrible Cat Training Tool

Professional trainers all agree that using a squirt bottle of water is NOT an effective way to discourage a cat from any behavior. All it really does is make him fearful of the spray bottle itself - NOT the activity he's doing when he gets squirted.

Some cats will also bear resentment towards the person who wields the water gun, so not only does it not register to deter the unwanted behavior, it can also have a negative impact on your relationship with your cat."

I have stopped chewing cords, at least for now. Mom doesn’t know if it was the squirt bottle that actually stopped me, but she’s very happy I’ve been a good boy for the past couple of days. Mom felt terrible whenever she squirt me, but getting electrocuted didn’t seem like such a good thing either!

Thanks, Newmie, for sticking up for me! The Squirt Bottle has been retired!

Love, Sammy


Mom's New Game

I haven’t stopped playing my newest game where I run across Mom’s laptop while she is using it and then chew on the computer cord. Apparently Mom does not like this game. She created her own game where she keeps a squirt bottle next to her and sprays me with a stream of water if I don’t stop chewing the electrical cord.

Mom is usually a pushover when it comes to discipline. She usually lets us cats do as we please most of the time, so I was a little surprised when she squirt me. Don’t get me wrong, we are all very well behaved kitties...well at least Luke, Tully, and Natasha are. I’m an orangie kitten, I just can’t help myself!

She’s really worried about me getting hurt from electrical cords so she has taken this drastic measure of squirting me with water. So far it’s been working. I run away now when I see her pick it up. I might have to think of another game to play…

purrs, Sammy


Sammy's New Game

I have a talent for making up new games. My newest game is to jump on Mommy’s lap while she is on the computer. I walk across the keyboard and chew on the cord. Mommy doesn’t like this game much. At first she thought I just wanted some attention so she’d put the computer aside and give me pets and rubs. But that’s not how you play the game. The rules state that the computer must be on Mommy’s lap and I must be allowed to walk on it, otherwise it’s not fun. And I must be allowed to chew the cord - that is the object of the game.

Mommy doesn’t know what to do with me right now. She’s already Sammy-proofed the house, or so she thought. Now she’s got to worry about me chewing on cords. Hmmm…what game shall I think of next?

Mischievous purrs,


I have a twin!

Oh my cat! I can’t believe it, but I have a twin brofur on Catster! Well, he’s not technically my biological twin since he’s a couple of months older than me, but we look so much alike that my silly Meowmy sent ME a heart rosie thinking it was my new friend. We both joined the Man Cats at Work-No Girls Allowed Group. Our main photos look amazingly similar with our MCAW hard hats so that when Momma tried to send him a heart rosie for me earlier today, she sent it to me by accident! Silly Momma!

He’s a sweet orangie boy who was abandoned as a baby just like me. He’s full of spunk and fire just like me. He’s a ball of mischief. He is cute and cuddly and loves his older brofurs just like me. I am so happy I met Milo today. I think we are going to be furry good friends!

Love, Sammy


The Flying Tomato

Last night was one of the best nights so far of the Winter Olympic Games. Natasha and I love to jump up and watch our big screen HD TV. Sometimes we will try and catch anything that is moving on the big screen because it is so big and life-like. Last night I was watching the Olympics with Mom and Dad because there was so much action going on the big screen.

There’s a cool guy named Shaun White who is a pawsome snowboarder. He earned his second Olympic gold medal last night in the men’s halfpipe. He did a maneuver called the Double McTwist 1260, a move with two back flips and 3 ½ rotations coming out of the half pipe – how cool is that?

I think I could probably do a Double McTwist 1260 if I only had a snowboard. Shaun even has long red hair like me and is a daredevil. His nickname is “The Flying Tomato.” So guess what my new nickname is? MOL!

xoxo, Sammy


Climbing the Walls

February 9th 2010 9:10 pm

Mom is concerned about my behavior lately. I have been extremely active, literally climbing the walls! Tonight I jumped on the top perch of the cat tree, which is about 5-6 feet from the ground. I stretched up high and was able to jump on top of the door frame. Mom watched in horror as I slid down the wall to the floor (note to self: do not slide down stucco walls, there is no traction!)

She then watched me as I ran and jumped up and scratched on the big TV screen. Did you know that HD is very life-like? I tried to catch a ball that was being shown during a golf tournament, but I couldn’t quite reach it….

Mom came home from work tonight and found waste paper baskets toppled over, newspapers, and mail shredded in a million pieces. The house was a mess. She didn’t see me do it, but she just knows it was me. Luke and Tully act appalled by my behavior and they are avoiding me.

What is wrong with me? Is this a temporary phase I am going through? Mom doesn’t know what to do!

Sheepish purrs, Sammy
