Basement Adventure

I like to go in the basement and explore. Teebo and Callie are too scared but I'm braver I guess. I stand at the door to the basement and "ask" dad to open it. So he does at my command. Today dad took me in the basement himself to show me some of his "Kollectables" on shelves. He then set me down in an area of the basement I had not yet explored thoroughly and left. I have to admit I did not know where I was. There were all these strange plastic boxes around. So I Meowed my loudest and dad came back down to see what I wanted. Once I saw him I followed him upstairs. So I guess I got lost in the basement. I'm glad dad was available to rescue me. I'll have to explore that area better next time I'm in the basement.

With warm purrs

Wow - it's already been two years since I got adopted! Time flies when you're having fun!! Thanks to all my pals for stopping by to help me celebrate. Mom and Dad gave us all some Rescue Remedy to help us deal with all the noisy fireworks. Don't know how many people will be outside because it's in the mid 90's and VERY humid.

Mom and Dad are going to stay inside on the couch and watch some Big Bang Theory with me.

Contented purrs,


Progress on all fronts!!

We've all been on a moist food diet since February and I've made a lot of progress on a number of fronts
-I've gone from weighing 17 pounds to 15 pounds
-My eyes aren't goopy anymore. It appears I may have an allergy to grain - who knew?
-I'm getting along more with Teebo since I eat next to him all the time. I even play with his tail sometimes!
-I gave Callie a kiss on her nose. We're still not quite sure about each other, but we're getting there.
-Mom and Dad have figured out that I like to play when no one is watching. If they catch me playing, I'll stop.

Guess that's all for now. Time to go explore the basement!

Contented purrs,


Loving my life!

It's. been quite a while since I've written. I guess I'm spending too much time napping....I take that back. You can never spend too much time napping. We got switched to an all moist diet recently. Teebo and I are both eating the Nature's Variety rabbit formula, which is really yummy.

It seems I may have had some sort of allergy to grain because Mom has noticed that my eyes are much less goopy and crusty now.

I'm also getting along more with Teebo. I'm not snuggling with him, but I will lay on Mom's chest while he lays by her feet on the couch. Speaking of which, I think it might be time to more snuggled!

Snuggly purrs,


Vet visit today

This morning we all got put in carriers and taken to the vet for our annual exams. Everythhing was going well, until Mom and Dad forgot to take me home. I couldn't believe it! The nice vet tech took me in the back and put me in a cage. I got taken out so they could squeeze my tummy.

Finally, they called Mom and Dad to come and pick me up. I was so relieved they came to pick me up that I peed in the carrier as soon as Dad put the car in reverse at the vet.

*Note from Mom: We didn't forget Rose at the vet. We did a senior exam for her and the vet wanted to get a urine sample. Unfortunately, she didn't give them a sample, so the office sent some Nozorb along so we could get a sample at home.


Making myself heard

You need to understand that I'm a super chill cat. Dad calls me his zen cat. I don't really meow very much or yowl. However I still make my wants clear. Here are a few examples.

Getting into the basement
I enjoy going in the basement. I refrain from meowing or pawing at the door. Rather, I simply walk down the hall, then peek around the corner until Mom or Dad sees me andopens the door.

Getting some attention
I have a move that I call the Roser Dozer. It involves simply walking into someone's leg head first. No rubbing up against it, just walking into it.

The tub
I LOVE to drink water from the tub faucet. So, when I need a drink, I just hop in the tub and gaze at faucet. If Mom or Dad are in the bathroom they will turn the faucet on then off right away so I can drink the drips.

Zen purrs,


We had a photo shoot Saturday!

On Saturday Teebo, Callie and I had a photo shoot! Mom and Dad piled us in our carriers and took us out to the HEA Adoption Center.

Mom made sure to let my head stick out so I could lunge at the other cars on the road. Mom thinks it's hilarious, but I know that I'm keeping those other cars from attacking us.

We waited our turn like good cats, and in fact we were the ONLY cats in the waiting area, so people were telling us how brave we were with all those dogs (which we were).

The time for our photo shoot arrived and we got taken out of our carries and put on this fluffy white faux fur blanket that was on top of some wooden crates that was next to a Christmas tree. Teebo and Callie had to share the top crate and I got my own crate lower down. However, I felt that something was missing and simply couldn't make the photographer understand and had to walk away from the shoot. (Note from Mom: Seriously, she got up and just walked away a few times while Teebo and Callie just sat there).

Finally, I realized I would need to make do so I stayed laying down, but refused to look at the camera. The photographer was pulling out all the stops to make me look, and she tricked me by barking like a dog! This of course was the one shot where Callie was NOT looking at the camera so there may be some photoshopping involved with the final shot.

Mom and Dad were super happy with the photos (as always!). Once the photos are posted online we'll let you know so you can see them if you want.

Thanks to all of my pals for stopping by to help me celebrate today!

Gibbs, Cash and Family sent me a wonderful note.
Big Harry sent me a note and even made me a great photo to celebrate.
The Bush furs dropped off some leaves for me to chase around.
Hooch and Crew stopped by with a pumpkin to get me in the Halloween spirit.
Luke, Tully, Sammy and Natasha sent over a fun ghost that I can play with.
Tat sent over a pumpkin that I can carve.
Zoey and family sent me a black cat that I can play with.

Mom, Dad and I went to the Hiss and Howl on Saturday night. I was a very good girl, even though Mom had to carry me down the catwalk in my fairy costume. I didn't win the costume contest, but I had soooo much fun getting lots of love and attention!

The 2012 Happily Ever After fundraising calendar was available for the 1st time on Saturday. After purchasing our copy we quickly looked through to see what month I was, and I'm Miss April!!!!

I'm sooooo excited because the ladies selling the calendars said so many people just loooooved the picture!! To get an idea of what it looks like, look at my 2nd photo.

Happy Purrs,


Sending out big hugs and thank yous to all my friends!

Oh my catness! I'm simply overwhelmed by all of the well wishes from all of my great friends on Catster. Not only is it my Birthday, but I'm also a DDP today too!

All I can say is Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!

We've been having a pretty low key day. Mom slept in today and cuddled with us all morning. Then she took a nap and snuggled with us some more. It's been a great day of snuggles!

Thank you to Patches from the Calico and Torti Darlings for the great picture in honor of my DDP!

Once I know what picture is being used for the calendar I'll let you all know.

I have one favor to ask of all of my angel friends. One of the FELV+ cats, Guy, from the Sanctuary where I used to live crossed over to the Bridge earlier today. He looks a lot like Teebo. Could you all please welcome him to the Bridge and tell him that we will all miss seeing him at the sanctuary? Thank you in advance for welcoming this sweet boy to the Bridge.
