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!

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.

Well pals, I just got lucky, and Momma says I probably used 1/2 of one of my 9 lives. Tuesday, I didn't feel so good. I was in my bed, and did not want to eat or play. I didn't even really talk to Momma - we chat alot - all very unusual for me. Now, those of you that know me, I love my noms - so red alert #1. Tuesday night Momma even said to The Dad "I don't think Smitters feels well - he doesn't seem right." I ate a tiny bit Wednesday morning, but was still very mopey. Momma figured when she got back from the grocery to get Nana's milk, a vet call would be made. When she got back & went to put a few things in the basement, there was a pile o barf with something in it. At first she thought it was a leaf, but there's no plants inside the house that I can get to. When she went to clean it, there was a balled up section of curling ribbon - probably at least a foot long. Momma has been cleaning the basement & getting rid of things. She moved some wrapping paper from one spot into a different drawer. Somehow that must have been mixed in and fell. She really watches stuff like that, cause I am known to eat things I should not - so Momma always double checks. There wasn't even ribbon in the drawer.... She thinks that it was in between the sheets of wrapping paper (which was from our Nana's old house) So I got a 1/4 pepcid, and I am doing fine, back to my old self. It scared Momma, and she felt bad that it happened, but glad that I was able to get it out. I guess I gotta leave the spaghetti alone! So a word to the wise - make sure you double check when you move things!
