Orange & White Tabby

Attention! From anyone & all the time! He is the most social & gregarious puss I have had the pleasure of sharing my life with.

Going to the vet. Going to the vet in a cage. He's cool with everything else.

Favorite Toy:
He loves a purple mitten I made for him out of an old sweater.

Favorite Nap Spot:
The back of the love seat in the morning room. Otherwise, anywhere my lap is, even if it has a guitar on it!

Favorite Food:
He's never met anything he doesn't like. Except Stink bugs.

Winning over even cat haters & carrying two toys in his mouth at the same time.


Arrival Story:
I met Darius when I was in rehab after suffering a brain aneurysm. I was paralyzed left side & needed to learn to use that side again. But I missed my kitties at home so badly, that I wasn't able to fully concentrate on my therapy there, so the Pittsburgh ASPCA brought in kittens to visit with me. One of these kittens was a 2 month old little round headed orange guy who immediately ran up & nestled under my chin & stayed there - what turned out to be forever. That was May 2001 & he's still tucking himself under my chin every chance he gets.

Lives Remaining:

Being Orange Is Never An Option

Halloween without Bailey...

Gosh it's been awhile since I was here. Our Mom has been so busy volunteering at the shelter & she's not crazy about typing on her phone. Me & the boys have been hangin' out by ourselves a lot lately. Behaving like little angels too, after all Xmas is only two months away!
I wonder if Mom's going to bring home a new brother or sister again one of these days. We definitely need someone black!!!

I was sitting on the window sill just this morning looking at all the pumpkins popping up around the neighborhood & thinking about past Halloweens at our house. It was so perfect with Bailey being black & me being orange & we'd each sit in a window beside the Jack-o-lanterns making the little ghosts & goblins laugh. Mom bought some goofy tinsel-y cats for the windows this year but it's just not the same as the real deal!

I wonder if she'd mind if I dyed Milo black? Better question...I wonder if Milo would mind? Yeah, I think he would...he gets pretty snitty about drips landing anywhere else but his tongue. Okay I guess back to the drawing board & dropping broad hints to Mom.

Have a really fun & very happy & safe Halloween everyone.


Not to be outdone by that upstart Milo...

I can't believe that no sooner has Milo moved in, but he starts a diary & gets all this attention like having his diary featured on the first page! Will we ever hear the end of that one? Meow, meow...meow....meow...blah, blah, meow! Well, I have lots to say too, y'know. I've lived longer & done lots & lots of cool stuff & I can talk about it all!

Like today fur-instance.

I have a really sore throat & my Mom was giving me that concerned look which meant I should go & hide under the bed pretty fast because the carrier & then the car ride wasn't far behind. And yup! Sure enough, before you knew it,I was sitting in that cage with cars whizzing by us back & forth & I then find myself sitting on that COLD, COLD steel table at the vets. Has anyone ever thought to tell them to cover those things with a cozy blanket or sumpin? Yeesh! I don't wear pants y'know?
Not that it would have mattered anyway, because they would have had them off me in no time.

Anyway...I have an inflamed throat & some cankers on my tongue so they want to see me again in a few days...~*sigh*~ Now I have to take medicine too, so haha Milo! You're not the only one getting special attention these days. Tho' I coulda thought of some better ways of getting it.

Wish me luck everyone...waiting on the blood & pee results right now.
