Being with me.

Having to share my attention with the other pets. She was here first! :) Also, she doesn't like it when I pay more attention to the computer or a book than I do to her!

Favorite Toy:
Little toy mousies. (And sometimes, real mice!) She specifically likes the soft, furry little ones. She doesn't pay attention to the bigger toy mice, or the ones with catnip in them.

Favorite Nap Spot:
It changes every once in a while. Right now her favorite spot is my pillow.

Favorite Food:
Fancy Feast Elegant Medleys. Also, she likes sunflower seeds, and white bread--she goes nuts if she smells that I'm eating those things.

She likes to hide and stay quiet in random spots until I find her. Also, she is very skilled at putting her little mousie toys in her dry food bowl! She loves putting them in there when I'm not looking so I can find them when I refill her dish!


Arrival Story:
I had to leave Cornell University for personal reasons, and was living on my own for the first time. I went to a shelter one day, just to look at kitties, and found Ivy. I fell in love with her right away, and thought her name was a sign (like Ivy League school) that she and I were meant to be companions and that she could help me heal and move into a new stage of my life.

I adopted Ivy when she was 6 months old. As a kitten, she had been rescued by PAWS and then lived in a foster home for a few months. Sadly, an older female cat was picking on her and they had to bring her back to the shelter. Then I came along, and it was love at first sight! She has been a very special kitty to me, and has handled life's changes, and the addition of other pets, beautifully.

My friend Tink started this tag game. If you would like to play, copy the questions and put them in your diary with your answers, then tag some furiends!


1. Describe one thing your pet pawrent does that you think is REALLY CUTE.

My mom sings little made-up songs to me. I love it and follow her around happily when she does.

2. Describe one thing your pet pawrent does that you think is REALLY LAME.

She keeps some doors closed in the house (closets, the laundry room, sometimes the guest room) and it drives me nuts! I need to be able to have access to EVERY area in my domain!

Not Feeling Well

Hi my friends. I haven't been feeling well for a couple of days, I have a kitty cold with watery eyes and some sneezing. Mom knew I wasn't feeling well but yesterday I really gave her a scare. She came to bring me my Fancy Feast dinner -- I always eat in the bedroom away from my pesky brofurs who steal my food...So she brought me my dinner and I started going towards it, then sat down and started falling over sideways, like collapsing. Then I lay on my side and yowled so loudly, like something was hurting me. Mom was so scared. She was screaming for Dad to come and then she immediately called the vet. They were so great, they said they'd fit us in immediately, and so off we went to the vet.

In the car, I meowed and cried loudly because I hate car rides. But Mom says at the vet's office I was such a good kitty. I didn't complain much at all and let the vet handle me. I didn't even resist them taking my blood. So the vet lady examined me physically and tested me for kitty diseases like FeLV and FIV and those came back negative. Then they did some blood work and the vet called Mom today with the results. The good news is that the blood work was healthy! But we still don't know what caused the episode, which could have been a seizure.

Mom is supposed to keep a close eye on me, so she has been checking in on me in my bed all day. If my cold doesn't get better, or if I have another episode, the vet wants to see me again. I know my mom is really nervous that I will have another one, she keeps telling me how much I scared her. She also doesn't like seeing me with my watery eyes and knowing that I don't feel 100 percent well.
