Arrival Story:
I went down to the shelter to get 2 cats. I'm a firm believer that shelter cats pick you. However, Raffi was jumping out his cage everytime someone opened the door and then rub his face all over you. After that, I had to have him. At the same time another lady was trying to adopt him. After a minor scuffle I won the cat. Raffi has been with me ever since.

Raffi was hit by a car as a kitten and has a pin in his leg. Consequently he cannot jump very high. So I have to keep benches all over my house so he can get into the window sills, into his kitty hammock etc.

Well there I was sleeping soundly in the middle of the night (well what isn't the middle of the night for me anyway? I sleep 23 hours a day!) and WHAM! I was flung off the bed. Apparently my person was having some sort of nightmare and I flew! Being of a great stature myself...it takes quite a bit to move me. This is quite a feat! I mean..I weigh a lush 17lbs!! Well I decided to give her a piece of my mind. So I stood directly on her chest and bit her in the head and MEOWED! All this encountered was a sudden belting and I fell on the floor again. Jeepers...its rough sleeping with my person! Well finally...I just sat in the doorway and howled, howled, howled until she got up...gave me a hug and dragged me back under the covers with her. She knows she can't resist me...but she has to realize that her freaking nightmares need to stop! I mean..how am I supposed to get my rest! Hello..its work to look this good!!

Yesterday was the best day. My person came home from the gym and fed me and my brother Manny Cod, Sole and Shrimp Fancy Feast. However, my pig of a brother shoved me out of the way to eat the rest of mine. I don't know how I manage to weigh 17lbs because I never get to eat all of my treats! Everything I eat just goes straight to my hips! Must be too many Aquariyums. Then my person managed to let me outside on the deck. I just don't understand the weather here. One day it is 50 degrees in MN, and then the next it is 20. My person lets me out regardless of the temperature. If she doesn't then I just whine by the door. She eventually gives in...everytime. I nearly froze my paws to death, and tipped over the fireplace utensils when I raced back inside. My person was not so happy with me! So I chose then to beat up my brother. He smacked me with his paw first, so he definitely had it coming. I'm not letting that little 7lb twerp get the best of me. Usually I go for a scratch on his cornea. I know how much he hates the vet and the cat carrier, so Manny takes his chances with me. I can't complain too much about him. He does clean my head and face, and lets me eat out of the food bowl first. I guess I will keep him around another day!
