Arrival Story:
Purrseus was found in January in the rain in a McDonald's parking lot in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Workers in the area say that there are frequently liters of kittens abandoned there by some cruel human. His rescuers said they opened their car door, and little kitten Purrseus just hopped right in! Eventually, his rescuers had to give him up due to allergies and an anti-cat landlord. The rescuers had been sending me pictures of him, hoping I'd adopt him. I tried to resist, but finally I bailed him out of the Eau Claire Humane Society June 9, 2010. And he hasn't stopped purring since... His favorite human in the world is currently his Dad.

PurrC Loving his Birthday!

It's my birthday! It's my birthday! Thank you for coming to my page to celebrate with me, furrends! I love the rosies (noms on the blue birdie).

I just got an extra helping of wet food and greenies! Mom sang to me, and she put a candle in my food, but she didn't light it this year. (I think she's finally learning that I'm too eager a dude to pause and wait for the humans to help me blow out the flame! Ha ha! I trained them!)

I had an awesome day. Started in the early a.m. with Sparkman and I catching a mouse in the house! Mom woke up and took it away. So we spent the rest of the early a.m. sniffing and licking the floor where it had been, recounting the tales of bravery to each other. I mean, there's just so much excitement when there's an actual mouse around, I don't know how the humans just go back to sleep!

It's suddenly super chilly outside here, but there's sun. Sparkman and I spent most of the day sharing a sunny window, lounging on Mom's desk together. That guy's such a fun pal. I can't get enough of licking his ears lately.

Dad and Mom both took us outside for a little bit this afternoon, but I was all set and ready for Dad to take me back inside. It's too cold outside! I'm done with outside till next summer... Especially if there's mice in the house! Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!


Happy Purrs!

I just gotta tell you guy how awesome life is for me right now... So Mom and Dad got me the "Big Boy" litter box, and I'm still being a super good little fuzzy guy, pooping in there. (Mom's amazed by that, by the way. She thought I'd have major behavior issues and continue poo-ing on the floor... But I do have half a brain! And I WANT to be a good boy and not lose my home!!!) And the Vet told Mom to put this "Miralax" stuff in my food to help me go easier... It tastes like sugar! Mom's putting sugar in my food! YUM!

Okay, so then they went to refill my meds and the human pharmacies don't stock the dose I need. So they took it to "Prescription Specialties" in town here, where they can make any med into neat things like suckers and syrup. The pharmacy guy called and asked Mom "Are you sure you want capsules for a cat? Would you prefer a liquid that the cat would actually like the taste of?" Mom of course said "Yes!" to that one! And now I have this gravy stuff they put on my food. It's so tastey that after Mom measures it out, she has to keep an eye on the other guys. Moose in particular thinks my meds are the tastiest thing ever and tries to steal a lick or two!

Naturally, this means I'm a happier little dude. I've been giving Mom kisses and hugs now and then, because I'm in SUCH a good mood! Dad loves me, I loves me, and Sparkman still has to wash his face after I lick him... But gee it's fun being a PurrC this month! Yayyy! Happy Purrrrrrrrrs!!!


PurrC: GOOD Boy!

Mom says I'm a GOOD BOY! Wow! So that's how it feels to be praised by Mom?! I could get used to this! She even gave me ear kisses, like Sparkman gets!

You see, I love pooping outside my box. I pee in the box, but the other business goes on beside the box. And more recently, it's been going on in weird places around the house where I think the humans might not notice! But apparently, they really do notice and it really did bug them. Mom and Dad got so fed up with me, they dragged me to the vet to see if there was any medical reason for my bad behavior, or if I really truly just wanted to be re-homed. She even x-rayed me!

And here's the crazy thing: my Vet found a reason! Apparently I have larger, harder poop than most cats. I have to walk in order to well... in order to do my business. She said it's common in doggies, but cats get this too. And maybe the litter boxes are just too small for my large frame and walking needs... So she prescribed miralax in my food and a HUGE litter box! My Dad went right out and found me an under the bed sweater bin that he filled with a whole tub of litter... And I've been going in there ever since! Mom is so amazed and delighted, she gives me neck scratches and tooth paste treats (I love the malt flavored tooth paste! Can't stop eating it.). And the best part: the humans are NOT talking about re-homing me any more! I can stay, as long as I'm a GOOD boy!
