Arrival Story:
I was in the tree next door, and Tigger kept meowing to me. Mom got me to come down with food, and she fed me every day. I started to hide in her garden by the back door, and would meow for my pal Tigger. I started to follow them around when they came out for Tigger's walk. Mom is pretty sure that my cat mommy & sibling are at the rainbow bridge already, and she was sad for them. She was so patient cause she knew I was scared, then one day she asked me if I would like to come inside the screen porch! Mom said it was too scary out there for such a teeny kitten, and now I am getting all the food I want, and pets & scritches! I never had them before but they sure feel nice! I close my eyes & purr when I feel the lovies! I went to the vet & got a shot, but I tried to be very brave. A home of my own! No more hiding from the other bad cats and scary stuff out there! Mom says she will get me my own leash so I can take walks with Tigger! I get so excited when I see him, I start to knead the ground & mew like a motorboat. Everyone here has been so nice to me & they pet me and call me a good little kitty. I have a full tummy & warm bed. I like it here! well, I have a name, and I run through the house like a whirlwind. I ask nicely for my food, ok I scream at Mom till I get my food - and I love to play! I especially love to play with Tigger.

Smitty is still kind of shy, but he is starting to blossom. He has started to sleep at my feet at night, and will cram himself into the same box with Tigger for a nap. He has even started to seften up Maizy a teeny bit - I caught her playing tap paw with him the other day!

help the black kitties!

I am also posting this through the other kits pages - sending out a plea to help a whole bunch of black kitties in trouble!

A vacated hoarder's home in the Chicago area was found to have close to 100 kitties in it - looks like most of them are black or tuxies. We all know it is so much harder for black kitties. (I have a special spot in my heart for a little black cat) Tree House Humane Society, Paws Chicago & Chicago Animal Control have been trapping the kitties, as they are boarding up the house today. Now they say they will not board it up until they are positive that there are no kits inside. Tree House has about 70 of the kits, but they are looking for foster help, adoption help, and surely monetary help.
Tree House is a very good place - they are big with TNR & they have a Community Cat placement too. The kitties look to be reasonably healthy as the man that had lived there was trying to feed them even after they foreclosed his house & now it is unhabitable. While I would love to foster, with 4 inside & a colony of 7, I cannot, but I will be sending some extra funds to help. (I am already a Member of Tree House & Paws)
The goal is to keep these lovely house panthers from being put down - as you know many ferals are. That is why they are awesome, cause they will take a feral group & place them in an area for rodent control or for barn cats. They are spaying/neutering/chipping & vaccinating all these babies. Please help if you are able! Here is their website


It's my Birthday!

Wow 5 years old already? It sure does not seem like it. Things are going pretty good for me. I have to go to the vet for my checkup next month, but I have lost a few ounces, and have a waist and everything. I have been enjoying napping on the chair in our enclosed porch, sniffing the air & listening to the birdies. I wonder what I will get to eat today? Maybe a few extra treats would be nice. I know Momma got a new scratcher for me. My big paws make mincemeat out of them pretty quick. I am a happy boy, and I am so very loved, and happy to have a nice home. I know I sure would not want to be an outside kitty, I am way too pampered. Happy spring to all and Happy Birthday to me!!!

from Momma:
It sure is hard to beleive that I have had the priviledge of knowing you for 5 years already. You are my big boy, my gentle giant. You are the big goofy brother to everyone. You took Felix under your wing, and even when we catsat for Jet, you were right there helping him not feel scared and playing with him until his mom & dad came back from their honeymoon. I love to watch your "Smitty strut" when I talk to you and you know it is treat time. I love that you still have that poker tail you had when you were little. I love your big white feet that you try to hold so dainty, even though you are such a big boy. I love that you talk to me every morning, and the way you chatter at me when I open the door for you to come in off the enclosed porch. Your whiskers just vibrate! I love your bright eyes that look at me and make me feel like I know you love me. I love your soft bunny fur, and the way you turn your head almost upside down so I can get that spot under your cheek. Thank you my SmittyKitty for giving me the gift of you! Love your Momma


your cat eats that?

I don't really eat any human food. I do like whipped cream though.
