One year ago, I was alone and afraid. I was running around at a gas station, trying not to get run over and hoping to find a bite to eat. I didn't even have a bed to sleep in!
Then Mom came along. She saw me, but I wouldn't let her get close. She then left, went home, and spent the next three hours thinking about me. When she came back to look for me, I was behind the building. After talking to me for about 30 minutes, I finally decided she was okay. I came up to rub her leg! Eventually, she tricked me into getting into the car. When the door shut, I was really scared. I cried some, then crawled up into the dash area behind the steering wheel. I continued to cry some, but would not come out even with the car door open after we got home! Mom brought food and put it in the floor of the car. Later, she came back to find me eating the food. But the second the door opened, I RAN AWAY! She didn't expect to ever see me again, but the next day, when she came home from work...there I was!
Now it's been a year. I live in the basement, where I have an electric heated bed on a table near the furnace. So WARM! I sleep on a furry old bathrobe with a fluffy giant green frog to cuddle against and my little zebra. I come out and run around all day, but I get locked in during the night to keep safe and warm. (In the summer, the door stays open so I can come and go as I please.)
The dogs? Well, Leia is my buddy. We play on the deck until she gets carried away and I leave. Chewy and Leia won't hurt me and I like them, but they play easier when there's just one of them with me at a time. They just wanna try to hold me down if I try to walk away, like "Wait! I'm not done with you yet!"
When they are locked in the bedroom, I get to investigate the house and see if I might want to stay in there. But so far, I always want to go back outside. Look out!!! Here come the dogs!!!
Everyone loves me here, but I still wish I had a lap I could sit on anytime...nice and warm and peaceful! So if anything better ever comes along for me, I WILL be interested.
Hope you all have a Merry Christmas and the best New Year yet!!

Well, I've been looking for three months now to find that nice warm lap. I've been "fixed", got my shots, posted pics, and still....no takers. One lady said she wants me, but I think she works too much to even come to get me.
I really like where I am...except for the dogs. I do even like them, but they just don't know how to be calm around me. I live in the basement. When I come up on the deck, they just nose me and push, so eventually...I just get away from them. I know that in time, they can do better, but still...I really want to live where I can stay inside. I just want to be an inside cat. (Is that so wrong?) I lived on the streets for awhile. I just want to feel safe and sleep in peace when I take a cat nap. Anyway, I'll keep waiting for that warm lap I've always dreamed of...and Ill post my ad:
WANTED: Friendly, loving lap to sit on. Lonely, sweet tuxedo girl seeks forever home to belong to. Gentle, playful, cute and "fixed": I am less than 1yr old, so I could keep you company for a long time. I do only have eight of my nine lives left, though. My name is Fritzy, but you could change it if only you could love me. I'll be here...hoping to hear from just the right person.
PS No declawing, PAW-leese!

I don't know how it happened, but I'm a DDP again! Thank you so much!!!!!!!!!! I'm so grateful for any attention I can get.
I'm still here waiting for that warm lap I've always dreamed of.
My foster Mom spends time with me before work and after work, but it only leaves me wanting more! I came out of the basement yesterday to the front porch. Just then Mom and the dogs were coming out the front door. I tried to hang out there, but Chewy wanted to bark and get too close too fast! Ugh! Had to jump off the porch! Leia has come down into my basement apartment, and she's slower and quieter. I think I could like her!
But I'm still hoping for just the right forever lap. I know there's one out there...somewhere...just meant for ME! Anyone out there with a lonely lap that I can come to warm up?????? Keep me in mind...
ps Thanks again for my DDDP! So SWEET! ;o
