Petting and toys. Roast chicken. Naps in my lap. Being the top cat.
Tia Sydibil getting too much attention. An empty plate. The computer in my lap.
Loofa mice, pipe cleaners, turbo track,
Wellness and Wervua with a very little Taste of the Wild dry to keep his teeth clean
The wonderful group of people who were fostering Tia notified me about Charley and when I met him, I had to adopt him too. He and Tia met the day I adopted them and were perfect lady and gentleman cats. No hissing or fussing. Charley let me pick him up and sat in my lap and purred for a while but there were too many toys around for that to last long. He introduced himself to my mother who was in her wheelchair; stood up beside her and loved on her hand when she held it out. He's very mischevious and up to something except when he's asleep in my lap. I'm sure I'll add more as we get better acquainted.
November 29, 2010: Charley has calmed down some and isn't so rough with Tia. He's learned what "OUCH!", "NO TEETH" and "No Claws" means although I rarely have to use any of them. When he plays with me he's careful to use his paws and not his claws and he licks rather than bites. He's still into everything and still loves to get into boxes and on cold mornings, he likes to come under the cover and snuggle with my feet.
August 31, 2010: Charley reminds me so much of Steinem. He's into everything and has to see what's going on. Sticks his nose everywhere. He love to play in boxes; his best trick is getting into a plastic shoe box (his head and his tail stick out). He has grown so much; he doesn't look like a kitten now. I watched him come down the hall the other day; he's got such a strut. He knows he is a handsome cat. I've had to stop calling him baby boy; he's my little man now. Yesterday I bought him his own glass; he's always trying to drink out of my glass or cup. It's in the sink right now so I can put him some water in it later. He and Tia are so cute together but they can have some huge spats. I worried that he would hurt her until I saw her hide from him and then knock him over when passed. He grooms her or walks up to her and drops his head so she can lick the top of his head and his ears.
We don't know much about Charley's early life. He was found as a stray; we don't know how old he is. He was used to humans and has excellent manners. He's OK with dogs and other cats. We'd been home about an hour when he hopped into my lap for a nap. I'm using April 13, 2009, as his birthday since he was about one year old when I got him on April 13, 2010. He's named for a severely disabled man I worked with for several years. Charlie was a loving person and had a great deal of intelligence for someone so developmentally handicapped. He had the most gorgeous blue eyes. That's where I got the name. When I looked at my Charley, the first thing I thought was "His eyes are the color of Charlie's." The spelling of the Bleau part is the way his foster mom named him when he was with her.

Contrary to what Mom and Tia might tell you; Mom did NOT see Tia and me cuddled up together and grooming each other the other night. Never happened - unh uh. I will admit to lying close to Tia, I just wanted to bug her a little. Maybe I licked her head because there was a speck of food on in -- but cuddling. Never happened - no way!!!!!
This is Mom: I know what I saw and it was so cute. Of course I didn't have the phone with me so I missed the best picture ever.

Mom's brother, our Uncle Jim, lost his fight with esophageal cancer on May 14. Mom's is having a hard time with this loss. She lost her uncle (the last of her Dad's brothers) just 3 weeks earlier. Charley and I have been being extra snuggley and I've been more talkative and affectionate with her. Charley never has much to say but he's been a real love bug. Mom has appreciated our affection. Right now she's still feeling a little lost and very sad.
She is taking care of herself; making and keeping doctor's appointments, getting necessary tests, etc. It's hard for her; now she is the last surviving member of her immediate family. The depression she has struggled with all her life is a constant burden but she is dealing with it with the help of medication and therapy and the comfort of family and friends.
We wanted to tell all of you what's going on with us and to thank you for all the kind words and gifts we've received during this long ordeal. Mom is happy that the family had Uncle Jim for so much longer than any of his doctor's expected. Time with the people you love is so precious and not to be wasted.
This is Mom: I'm finally able to write this entry; I've tried several times and dissolved into tears every time. I'm not handling this as well as I had hoped but I'm coping and I will survive and thrive. I just don't know when the fog will lift. Thank all of our Catster friends for your kind words in the past. Please don't send presents; keep your zealies for happy times.
