Likes: Hunter loves to pounce on his dog-sister, Teaka. He also loves to lick his humans!! Hunter also loves water, he will play in it until he gets soaked!
Pet-Peeves: When I try to wipe his eyes to get the 'sleep' out. He hates when I try to clean his nose, or bum.When I don't wake up when my alarm rings.
Favorite Toy: Teaka, his Feather Flyer, drinking straws, medicine cups, bugs, his catnip chili pepper, and green mouse.
Favorite Nap Spot: On top of the kitchen hutch, on top of the cabinet in the laundry room, in his new big brown bed, next to my face at night.
Favorite Food: Natures Variety Lamb!! He loves his Addiction foods and of course his kibble. Fancy Feast!
Skills: With one leap he can clear about 6 feet. He is a master at stealing straws out of soda cans. Cramming his little bum into the smallest spots.
Arrival Story: Well I wasn't looking at getting another cat, at all. You see, my other cat, Hanna just died 2 weeks prior to getting Hunter. I was very down and depressed. My sister said I need to get out of the house, and she brought me to the shelter, to "look" at the kitties who needed homes. I really didn't want to go in. I saw Hunter with his 4 brothers and sisters. They were all orange and white, except for Hunter. Hunter was the only white medium haired kitty out of the bunch. The rest were short haired. I saw him and fell in love. I felt that I wasn't ready. I put him back in his cage. I looked at the older kitties. Meanwhile, another couple were looking at the kittens as well. They mentioned they were going to feed their kitty milk, which is a big no-no. They were holding onto Hunter! There were 5 kittens so they were holding each and every one of them. I sneaked in and grabbed Hunter ( he was known as "Sunkist" at the time). I knew feeding the kitten milk was wrong, so I saved him from future tummy-aches! I'm sure hes very thankful! I think Hanna played a part in the way I got Hunter. Its been months since I've had him and he's reminding me of Hanna more and more each day. Of course he is completely different, but there are those things that only a pet mom would notice. Hunter is crazy, and yes he has broken a few things here and there. However, in all honesty, I can't imagine a day without him. He always brings a smile to my face!
There is a legend that the kitty angels tap kittens and cats gently on their heads when their new mommies appear and say "There is your new family - go to them"
Bio: According to my friends and family, Hunter is my son. My white furry son. He is my big boy and I can't imagine a day without him. He is a very big trouble maker and I always ask people if they want him. I've mentioned I was going to put him up for adoption, but in all reality, I never would. I couldn't. He is part of my life now, a very big part actually. He has that "two year old toddler" mentality that'll never grow up. He is clingy, needy, whiny, and did I mention a trouble maker? He makes me smile, laugh, cry, angry, irritated etc. Now that he has been around for a while, I can't imagine a day without my big boy.
Hunter is my white, Turkish Van imposter, Maine Coon trilling, licking, sleeping next to my face so I inhale fur, Ragdoll flopping, skinny, trouble making big boy, and I wouldn't have it any other way. I love my Hunter
So I don't actually know how long its been since I've written in Hunters diary. I want to say at least a year if not more. I guess I got all I needed to out of Catster when Hunter was young. Hunter is now 5 years old, and just had his physical. He is a-okay besides needing to gain weight. I don't know how to put weight on a cat, so I've been feeding him a tablespoon of kibble with his wet food. Hes high strung/High energy so he just runs around like a lunatic. He doesn't stay still really unless hes sleeping.
Teaka (the dog) is fine. Nothing new with her. Hunter still tries to kill her, but hes unsuccessful. He tries, so I guess I have to give him credit for that. I'm not sure who still uses Catster to be honest. I thought that they got rid of this site a while back. Glad to see its still up and running, and that my user name and password still work. :) I had a few minutes so I thought I'd write something. Maybe I'll start coming here more regularly. I miss the community, and it was great to see everyone truly helping people.
Hope everyone is doing well, and as Hunter would say...
I am exhausted. I feel like I haven’t slept at all last night. I think I got about 5 hours sleep. Not enough for a person who gets at least 8. Its Hunters fault. It started at 3:30am and he kept on walking on me, licking me, laying on me, eating my hair, pulling my hair, walking on my bureau, messing with my alarm clock. Ugh, hes exhausting!! I tried to play with him, I was laying down and apparently I fell asleep. So again with the licking, eating hair, walking on me. This went on for 2 hours.
I feel as though I can’t reprimand him, as hes been having litter box issues. For 4 days now, hes been doing really well and I don’t want to screw it up. I don’t know what it was last night but he was just ridiculous!! He hasn’t done that in months. He just sleeps on the bed with me and we have no issues, well besides him hogging the bed.
Anyway, if anyone wants to adopt Hunter for a few days, be my guest. He will be 4 years old tomorrow, about 10 pounds, Either part Turkish Van/angora/Maine Coon according to his vet, high energy and needs to be mentally and physically busy all the time. He snores, eats only wet food, and at the moment has perfect litter box habits. He is very needy and will come to you for attention. He is a very clean boy and his fur doesn’t mat. He comes with all of his food, and his 2 favorite wand toys. He will catch them mid-flight and carry them around your house. If you would like to foster Hunter for a few days, please don’t hesitate to call me.
P.S I would never put Hunter up for adoption/foster but if I did, I think that would be a good ad.
EDIT: I just realized its Hunty's b-day today. Maybe thats why he was buggin me all morning. Happy Birthday to my big boy!!
Okay, so I'm cat of the week?!?! Holy schmoly!!! Mom kept on getting these emails from Catster and mom though it was just gifts for NYE.

Thanks everyone for the gifts, treats, and pawmails!
