Skills: She has won so many awards at cat shows,and she is just amazing!!! ♥
Arrival Story: ***Mom Karli*** Since I was about two years old I have always loved Sphynx. My whole life I wanted one. But,Sphynx are very rare and therefore very costly. We checked into breeders,but nothing worked out. Well,when I was nine years old,I went to the library with some friends. I found a book on Sphynx Cats.That night I glanced through the book. It seemed like I would never get a Sphynx. That night,I prayed that somewhere,wherever she was,a Sphynx that needed a home would meet up with me. Two days later I got a call. A friend who worked at an animal shelter had just had a lady come in with two cats. They had originally belonged to the lady that came in with them's boyfriend's ex,but when they divorced,the boyfriend didn't want them,and he was moving to an apartment where they didn't allow pets. The lady with the cats told my friend that if the shelter didn't have room,they were going to put the cats down. "Well,what kind of cats are they?" My friend asked. The lady replied,"One is a grey and the other is a Sphynx." That night I got the call.(We took Taz,too.) And that wonderful day four years ago I found my best friend forever.

well,thanks everyone sooo much for my fun filled birthday! Thanks for all of the nice gifts,comments and gifts! It meant sooo much to me! Now to Cat of the day!!! This,was my best bday gift! We were so shocked when we logged onto email today (Mom had 254 emails from catster in her inbox!) we were shocked to see I was cat of the day on Friday! I am soo sorry and sad I missed it! we were getting bad storms and tornado watches on Thursday,my bday night,(not till after Mom took me to the concert!) and Friday,Mom didn't get on the computer. we are so sorry we missed it! It is going to take us a loong time to catch up on all the emails,comments,and sending around our thank you's,so we wanted to say something now!
Thank you to all of you who sent gifts! I love all the sweet messages! It made my whole day! I WILL get around to sending you all thank you rossettes,but be patient with my slow typist Mom! We love you all,and hope you are all well! Hugs,Gidgit
(4-26-11) I am Momma's best friend. Forever. In November,a new Sphynx,Tank,joined the family,but I know now Mom will always love me best. I love all of you! I have so many friends,you guys are all great! Please join my two groups on Catster we started:CATSTER PICTURE PALACE,and Spreading the Love of POTP. Also,our family is so big to make it easier we just go by "Da Gang". PS:We're from Chicago,go CUBS,go HAWKS!!!
Heyy friends... I have not written in a diary entry since before Christmas,but I am glad to be able to come back on Catster now every day and although all of our pages could do with a makeover,I am just glad I can catch up with ya'all! So,I hope everyone's doing great! :) Well,I guess you could say the real reason I had avoided writing a diary entry around Christmas time was because not only did I lose my beloved brother,Oliver,but in just a few weeks after his loss,my sweet wonderful husband Taz crossed The Bridge and earned his Wings. December ninteenth. ...
But I have also changed a lot in those few months he has been gone for. For one,I can honestly say I can now tolerate my Sis-Skin,Tia,Tank,whatever. I mean,that's not to say we're best of friends or anything,but I think I've gotten over the urge to murder her. *tail stops flickering*. So,I guess that's progress? Also in that time,our little FIV kitten,Lucky,crossed the Bridge,but our hearts started healing when we got our newest addition,a pure white older cat Mom adopted from Petsmart right before Christmas. Pure white like Oliver. She's alright. And maybe even having fewer of us now has left the others feeling more comfortable. Like,Jack our former feral doesn't go outside as much as he used to,and Jenny,who,as of a month ago if you even walked by her she would think you were gonna kill her and dive straight for under the couch,is coming around and now is so comfortable with Mom she even lets her pet her,and occasionally,if it's dark and she thinks no one's looking,Jen will crawl onto Mom's bed. Noelle is making the adjustment well,I must say,since before Mom got her she had been left at a pet food store,and although Tank can't stand her,I think she's pretty cool. Thunder is friendlier,too and while she's gonna be eight in April,she still plays like a kitten when it comes to catnip.
Tank is going to her second cat show in a few weeks,entered this time as a Champion,Mom is hoping she can leave with something,but she's also showing Jack in Household Pet. Tank is currently on a diet,and being kept away from muffins is making her go insane.
And then there's me. Little,hairless wrinkley me. Going to be eleven in the summer. That will be the first birthday I'll have a party all to myself. My first birthday cake with only MY age in the number of candles. My first birthday without someone to cuddle with,and enjoy the day. My first birthday without Taz.
Actually,there are going to be a lot of firsts without Taz. Christmas was hard enough,but Mom taking good care of me. I think though,out of all the holidays,today,Valentine's Day,is the hardest. I am currently just laying in one of the many cat beds,pretending to be asleep,but occasionally opening an eye to watch Mom type. Oh yeah. And I am dreaming about Taz. Taz,I love you. You will forever Be Mine. Forever And Always...

I am not retiring.. :( ? :) heehee yepp,although Mom said my Household Pet show career was over last year,she decided that I needed something fun and since I really do seem to enjoy the once a year show at the Pet Expo,Mom's gonna enter me again. I mean,let's be honest here,that's the only day in the year Mom doesn't mind if I steal one of her cheese fries. ;)
So,Mom is doing everything for me,to keep me happy and I nuzzle her to show my thanks. Purr. Purrrrrr. For all of you,too.
So,the diary to make up for where there should have been many,is dedicated to all of my wonderful friends. I have been on Catster almost two years now and you all rock! Seriously,k?!? And who knows,maybe I can steal some extra cheese fries this year and I'll ship them to you,mol!
I'll be off now,Mom wants to go try to finish her Hunger Games book (Something about Catnip?? Darn,that's just the main character's nickname... :|) And Taz and I have this huge platter of crab being set in front of us...only this time,it's only in my dreams...
