Arrival Story:
A friend of mine who is an antiques picker saw this little long-haired orange tabby in the street at his house, and after a day or two he rescued him. I told him I would foster the kitten and then adopt him out. We fell in love with him! So we adopted him ourselves.My husband gave in when I turned on the tears in the Outback Steakhouse. We called him Picker for 2 reason, my friend is a picker and the kitten was definately eating out of the garbage,so he is a picker too!

Picker has 2 brothers and sisters here.

Hello, friends. it's me Picker, the big orange cat. I am 3 years old now and all grown up. I have a very happy home, I love my Mom and Dad so much. I love to sit in their laps and sleep, I barely fit anymore but it's so cozy. But sadly, my Mom is having some issues. She discovered that I haven't been taking such great care of my long orange fur and it got all matted up. So she went and got the little hair scissors she cuts hair with and proceeded to give my a summer grooming. I mean seriously my fur is LOOOONG. I don't mind it short cause it's easier to lick but I HATE sitting still while she cuts it. It makes me impatient and kinda annoyed. She sneaks up on me when I am sleeping. Well that's bad enough but okay I can live with it. The other thing tho is a problem. It's getting warm here and Mom opens the windows for us to sit in, and we even have a catio to play in. But I want to go outside. I can even open the door by myself,the screen door that is. I get out on the porch and roll around and around. It's so fun, but then Mom grabs me and drags me back inside. I sit and stare at the door so you'ld think she would get the hint, but she doesn't . She just goes on and on with her stories about how bad it is for us to go outside. What should I do? She won't let me outside! Sadly, Picker


Me and the Evil Stink Bug

Hello Diary friends! It's been a while and a very fun year. I am all grown up now and the very biggest cat in our house by a lot. My brothers don't like to to wrestle with me any more cause I always win. But something crazy happened this weekend I want to tell you all about. There are these red and black bugs all over our wall outside and sometimes they get in. Friday night in the middle of the night ( which we all know that is when we cats have the most fun) I found one and thought he would be a tasty snack. I took a bite and it tasted HORRIBLE so I spit it right out. But then, the strangest thing happened, spit began to pour out of my mouth like by the gallons. I ran to mom cause she always fixes everything, and makes me feel better, but she was sleeping so I just snuggled next to her and then when she felt all my spit all over her, she woke up. She was sleepy so she just went back to sleep. The next morning they thought I was playing in water somewhere but they looked close and they saw I was drooling. They took me right to the vet, but before we went Mom looked all around to see if there were any clues as to why I was sick. She found the bug I spit out and put it in a Baggie. When we got to the vet, they checked me out good. They said I was healthy, but when they saw the bug they said it was a Stink Bug, and that's what made me sick! They make a horrible tasting and smelling stuff come out when you bite them. And horrible tastes make us cat drool. I drooled all day yesterday and now it is almost all better. I only have a few spit drops now and then. So Catsters, learn from me, don't eat stink bugs! You will regret it!
Peace love and catnip, Picker the Cat


holiday Recap from Lucky Picker

hello diary friends,
Mom says the year is ending , and she is happy about it, she says she is glad to have the "Christ-Mess" season over. I thought it was very very exciting. Gina threw up in the middle of Thanksgiving appetizers, everyone was watching. I did something really really bad, I climbed up in the Christmas Tree and the whole thing fell over and it was loud. It was awful, cause when I get caught doing something bad I usually run away and hide hoping Mom and Dad will think Kitto or Gina did it, but,, there were branches and lights all wrapped around me and I was stuck. I sat really still and that scared Mom even more, cause she thought I was hurt. She helped me out and put up the tree again, I broke a few ornaments but none of her favorite fairy ones, which, it turns out are plastic thank goodness. Dad is on vacation from his work so he plays with my Da Bird toy with me A LOT. I got a furry toy for the end of. It. Even Gina joins in the game.
Now it is winter time and Mom is going to keep an eye out for cats who are lost outside, so she can rescue them. No cat should have to be lost, and if they get lucky enough to come here, they will think they are in cat heaven.
Well I hope you all have a really great year in 2012. Humans go through some really sad times so remember to cuddle them extra hard, it makes them feel so much better! Happy New Year, and peace love and rescue for all! Love Picker
