Skills: Jumping to try to catch the laser on the wall, mol!
Arrival Story: Former owner was elderly, sick and unable to keep him beyond Feb 2012 and passed away due to the cancer. Since I'm home alone most of the time I made the decision to adopt him. He is an awesome cat! He greets visitors instead of running and hiding.
From the black cat on your friend list, hope you're having a purrfect day!
Last weekend mom went on a 5 day vacation to GA to hang out with family & friends. She left on the 5th and returned the 10th and flew Airtran round trip direct from MN to GA & back again. She feels lucky she landed at least an hour or so before the horrible storms started in Atlanta since she went to dinner with her cousin on a rooftop deck at a restaurant with a great view of the skyline in the distance. As they finished & returned to the car it started to thunder.
She stayed with her uncle at what used to be her grandparents' house. He has 3 cats so she spent some time with them. She also met the cat at her dad's house and snuggled with 3 & 5 week old kittens at another family members' house. She wanted to bring them all back home with her, especially the little black one that reminded her of me.
I stayed in the apartment by myself but she had my stuff set up in the living room and her mom came to feed me Fancy Feast & treats every day, then her brother did before she got home. She went to Cracker Barrel while on vacation & got me a weazel ball, that thing is wacky! She smelled a little odd when she got home but showered & got laundry done asap so now I believe she is home.
The grass is green, the trees are blooming and mom is sneezing if she forgets to take her allergy medicine (mainly allergic to the pollen). She's glad to finally get out on her bike on the better days and went out to lunch at DQ. Seems like she barely gets to the grocery store for herself anymore since her mom is busy babysitting so much and still working part time at the dollar store. The so called helper staff don't come around as often either.
My mom is flying south in a couple weeks for a 5 day vacation. She's never been away for more than 1 day at a time since I moved in with her. She's taken great strides to prepare by buying a lot of my favorite food & special Fancy Feast flavors. I have an auto water dispenser that is filled with tap water from the kitchen sink, a dry food auto feeder and dishes for my canned food.
I prefer being home so I'm staying home. Her local family will take turns caring for me while she's away. I'm so pampered that she's typing out a 2 page brief guide about my usual day & other important stuff about the apartment (curtain open while a/c runs, not automatic etc). She has also included a checklist so whomever comes each day can check off the completed stuff.
She's considering keeping me in the living room/kitchen part of the apartment so I don't shut myself out of the bedroom/bathroom and temporarily relocate my litter box (7 day odor control litter) to the living room. All my furniture/toys are in the living room.
She's going to contact the vet later this week to let them know the situation and leave payment information with them in case anything happens.
Mom will be staying with her uncle in GA and he has 3 cats so when she misses me she can pet them.
Mom finally got the filled in form back from the therapist last week and turned it in yesterday to the apartment office, so now it's official that I'm not going anywhere! Mom is working on pre-approval for a mortgage so we may be in a house by Halloween. She's been looking at a small house online 10 minutes away and wants to see if she can possibly get it and live in a quieter neighborhood with her mom a block away and her brother & nephew 2 blocks away. She's going to be busy with that, business stuff & events for a while and is even going on a 5 day vacation in June. I'm staying home alone and her family will be around to make sure I'm alright. I've been on my own for only 1 day at a time before so we're a little anxious about 5 days part.
