Arrival Story:
Groucho at age about 7 years, was part of a family that had to remove all pets from their home, due to having to bring in their prematurely born, respiratory challenged twins. He was free! We had never owned a kitty before, so it seemed a good way to start. That was in Feb of 1988. I got him in the house, and when the carrier was opened, he ran out and hid...and hid...and hid. For days, only coming out at night when we weren't about. He would use the litter, and eat food, but that was all we knew of his presence. I think he was traumatized from the abrupt change in his life. Kind of sad. Eventually he ventured out, and gradually over weeks, if not months, he became more social and friendly with us. Soon he became a lap warmer, kneader and purring machine. We were honored with his presence for 11 more years, and he taught 3 kittens about life in our home. We do miss him.

Cross eyed. Chocolate pointed. Had tachycardia. Died of progressive kidney failure and probable liver failure. He was very adept at opening doors and cupboards.

Everything has to be on the floor

A Sunny Day, My Fave! And a DDP To Purrfect It!

October 13th 2013 2:01 pm

I loved sun puddles. Today as my earthly furmily were catabrating Canadian Thanksgiving with turkey and all the fixings...I saw the sun shining brightly, too. (Meowmy had to catabrate today, because she has to work holiday fur her, MOL!)
So while I do miss the earthly delights of stealing a morsel of yummy turkey,and sleeping in a warm sun puddle, I can still observe from the eternal palace of brightness and sun puddles that don't go away when the sun moves through its pathway...
I saw, too that the day was purrfected by a DDP, just fur me!
Thanks Diary Gal!
And likely due to the warm sunny day, I also saw Minko sneak through the doggy door into the back porch. MOL! When meowmy got up from a nap, she walked to that area, and Minko felt so guilty he must have thought another stranger was coming...and he shot back inside through that same doggy a kitty torpedo! MOL! His tail was all fluffy, too...purrhaps he saw all the company that is going on next door...MOL, serves him right!
I also saw yesterday that furnally the furniture that I used to nap on...old and soft and purrfect fur cat-naps has been taken out to furniture heaven and replaced with new ones, dark navy...hey meowmy - thats purrfect to snag and show off all the kitty & doggy hairs! The old ones kind of let it all just blend in and meld into the flowery fabric...

OMC! The things I get to watch from up here!

Purrs to all the earthly furs and furends that have sent me messages and gifties!


Oh, MY!! I am the Diary of the Day!

Wow! As I dictated things to the earthly catretary from my heavenly perch, I didn't expect this kind of attention...afterall, I was a rather shy kitty...
Thanks and big purrs to all who sent me prezzies and comments and pictures.

Well, now I shall allow my earthly furmily to rest up for tomorrow, and then they will be ready fur all the earthly things they need to do.

Meanwhile, I shall gather together with my angel furblings here at the R.B. with me, and we shall meet up with the crowd of catabrating furs at the R.B. Cafe.
Its quite a pawrty, meowmy says she can hear us down upon earth...its a thunder storm there! The big lightnings must be from that large spinning light-show ball that is glowing and spinning at the Cat's Disco here. Hmmm, I think I will just sit back and watch them...

Grouchy Purrs!


Today Is Spawsial!

This is a spawsial day for my earthly furmily.

As you know my name is Groucho.
While I didn't get that name from my furmily, they think I got it because of my birthday. Today marks the day when Groucho Marx was likely that's why I was given that name by the peeps I lived with the furst seven years of my long years of life.

Then after I had been with my earthly furmily as you all know them, my meowmy & pawppy had their furst son...on October second, my birthday! Wow! Who can plan that!

Now my profile doesn't mention my birthday, only my Gotcha Day...hey I think I need to add my any of you think I should??

Then when my beloved brofur Simba had to suddenly go to the Rainbow Bridge, meowmy went to look fur a new kitty to keep me company. She was led by Simba to find Suki...and of all things! Her birthday is October second! OMC! How could you not take home a kitty that has such a spawsial day to have her birthday on! It was the 'sign' and so Suki came into my life and the rest is history as they say...

Now I don't want to steal her birthday catabrationing but really meowmy don't you think I need a birthday catabration, too??

(Meowmy will add it in later and then we can both catabrate our mutual birthdays next time...and you know what else, meowmy shared her birthday with her Mom, sharing a day is a fine thing! And by the way, Happy Birthday to my unfurbro!)
