Getting to Know You!

I'm sure wishing these new brothers of mine would play with me. I have high hopes for that Captain Morgan guy. He lets me bump noses and eat out of the same catfood bowl already. But those other two sure have the growls. And that Sparkman character fluffs as big as a titan when he seems me. And I swear his growls will turn me to stone soon.

But all in all I'm too busy purring to mind too much. This is the fourth place I've lived in my little life, and I'm sure happy to be here. I'm determined to make a go of it. In fact, every new human I meet I try and win them over. I just throw my arms around their neck, purr, and head butt them all over. New Mom was sure a sucker for it!

I am just so lucky to have a home... Now I just have to win over some brothers! Purrrrrrs!

 

Awww, Thank You!

Wow! I got invited to join 3 dogster groups! Thanks so much for your love, but I am a cat. And since I have no doggies in my family, I actually don't think I can even log onto dogster to join in... But thanks for the love! Purrs back at you!

PS- I am playing with Capt. Morgan! He's hissing and running, so he might not know we're playing... But I sure think we're playing!

 

I've Made a Friend!!!

HUGE news! Last night for the first time: I chased Captain Morgan, and then he turned around and chased ME!!!! I think I finally have a friend! I'm following him around and purring at him this morning. He's kinda lounging a lot on tall things and looking down at me. He doesn't want to play every minute of every day?! What gives?!

That big orange guy, Sparkman sure doesn't like me being buds with that Captain Morgan guy. He keeps coming over, hissing, and then trying to get the Captain Morgan away from me. Captain Morgan's kinda ignoring both of us. He's more interested in nose kissing Mom and asking for greenies. (Is THAT how you get more treats around here?!)

My new humans left all weekend. And apparently the proper response to them being gone (as Captain Morgan has taught me) is to howl and cry and throw yourself on the floor in a mellow dramatic fit of starvation. Then you get wet food! Whoo hoo! Great trick, Captain Morgan! But warn me next time you do it. This time I totally thought that you were dying.

And this morning the humans set up something called a Fan. It moves around and blows air and scares me. I'm hunching up like a halloween kitty and racing around, away from the invisible monster blowing air on me. And chirping like it's a game of course. And Mom says she's about to chase me around with a camera, but with how fast i'm racing; there might not be a picture of this. (Mom says: Dang it! He's too cute!!!)

Puuuuuuuuuuurrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrs!

 

Oops. That's NOT a Litter Box?!

Oh! So that strange, badly shaped litter box by the fireplace isn't a litter box? It's apparently something called an "Ash Bucket." All I know is that it's so small that I was missing while perching on it, and then having to paw that powdery gray stuff out of it and onto the floor (and some books; and the cat beds...). Oops, my bad!

New Mom says it's gross, but an honest mistake. Then New Dad cleaned the bucket, while Mom vacuumed the floor. Man, these are the moments that I realize I've found a good home. I hear that missing litter boxes & using the wrong places are like #1 on why cats lose their homes... My new humans just cleaned it up and forgot about it! Phew!

And as a side note; I think that Sparkman cat's a Gorgon. When he looks at me and makes that noise, I swear I turn to stone every time. He's one scary dude cat. I'm not gunna mess with him any more. Captain, however, is still very fun to jump on!

 

Itaska Road Trip!!!

Most cats don't like being in a car? Huh?! What's not to like! The humans have nothing better to do but sit there and pet you! I personally kinda like it... So I just went on a little road trip with my humans! We went across the state to check in on my Auntie's & Uncle's House (It's doing fine, still on the market.), then to someplace called Itaska State Park where the Mississippi River starts.

Along the way, they told me the story of Perseus. And I learned something new: My Dad is ZEUS! My Mom's a mortal Danae, which is great too. But ZEUS?! Whoa! I better start calling him by his proper name, or he might smite me.

The Itaska place I wouldn't recommend for other car cats. I got out of the car and was standing there on my leash by a sign that said "800 feet to start of Mississippi River." And I was all set to go, when I saw the biggest dog ever. It had a thousand teeth and then I noticed screaming, hyper children with a hundred hands to pull cat tails!!! I freaked out. The car's not scary; but kids are TERRIFYING! I accidentally clawed up Mom while she was getting me in the car. But she and Zeus seemed to understand that that last 800 feet was just too much for me. So I stayed in the car with my water cup and munchies. Had a great time! They came back to find a purring Purrseus. I sniffed Zeus's feet all over (he'd walked in the headwaters), so I know just what it looks like. It's great, but too many kids.

All in all it was a great bonding experience for me and the new humans. When I got back inside last night, my new brothers sniffed me all over. No one hissed at me! They could smell Mom and Zeus all over me and just knew... I'm part of the family now!!!

 

Naughty But Part of the Family!

Sparkman let me sleep in the bed with everybody else last night!!!! Mom and Zeus woke up and found me all curled up between Captain Morgan and Sparkman. It was like a dream come true for me! My own family!!! Then I woke up and went and did naughty things in a corner of the living room where that nice ash bucket used to be... So I'm in trouble right now. But at least I'm part of the family! (Mom says she's realized why I lost my first home: I pick my OWN places to do things!)

 

I Caught a Mouse!

I'm being a good kitten. This last week, the humans think I've been only doing my business in the litter boxes!!! And I've befriended the orange hissy guy & grey growl/hiss dude. My Captain friend is nice to me, but he doesn't seem to be much into wrestling. That orange guy, though! Wow! He really packs a bunny kick! We're getting along great.

And I caught another mouse in the garden. This time it was a tiny baby mouse with BIG eyes... Mom's wondering if that mouse Sparkman & I caught last week was a girl mouse with babies! This time, she got the mouse away from us before we killed it. Then I got loves and praises from my Mom. Good human, I like you too! Purrs

 

Sparkman and Purrseus

I have a buddy! I have a buddy!!!! Me and Sparkman are like mouse-keteers. We're like titans. We're like Apollo & Artemis... okay maybe not Artemis. But it's so cool! I have a buddy to romp around the house with and bite on and play with and everything!!! Periodically he gets annoyed with me and tells me to go take a break. But mostly, he just lets me follow him around.

And we're teaching each other what Mom calls "Bad habits." Apparently he's being bitey with Mom when they play (like me when I'm excited). And I've started growling and protecting my prey when I catch it outside... But one thing we're up to that Mom LOVES is that when Sparkman finds something and tries to eat it, I steal it from him and take it over to show her! She's just so happy. Apparently he EATS this stuff?! That's one habit of his I'll skip!

Whoo hoo! I'm gunna go bite my buddy's head now.

 

I Kinda Liked the Bath!

I don't know why everyone's complaining... I thought that bath was exciting! And kinda fun! I sat in there and didn't complain too much. For a little while at least... And now they're accusing ME of giving them ringworm possibly?! Oh, sure! Blame the New Guy! How rude. I don't know why anyone would think a guy as fluffy as ME has ringworm?! Honestly!

Now if my Sparkman buddy would only stop pouting and come play with me, everything would be fine again. He's just been moping all day since that bath... It wasn't THAT bad, Sparkman! It was kinda fun!

 

What Am I?!

Tethys Fluffkins mentioned that I might just be a Norwegian Forest Cat rather than a Maine Coon! I told my parents, and they've been reading and reading and looking at me all funny... I thought about it too, and decided that it's best to ask actual experts on the subject of cats: CATS! So what do you think?! What AM I?!

ps-- to help decide, I'm posting a picture of another kitty found in the same parking lot as me... We're pretty obviously biological brothers. But according to the humans, he's now my cousin!
