Hello, New World!
It has been an eventful few days for me. First I will tell you a little about me. I hope to get to know you better and be your friend.
A few months ago, I was a new mom. I was cold and hungry and looking for food for my kitten. A nice lady saw me and tried to get someone to take and care for us. Before they could come, someone called the animal police and we were taken to a shelter in mid-southern Michigan.
My baby was adopted right away, but no one wanted me. Because I was so friendly I was selected for the local community college vet tech program, where I was tested, vaccinated, and spayed. A nice lady, Janet, from a rescue group in the Detroit area came for me (, and I was a guest in her home. She took very good care of me. About a week ago, she took me out to a big pet store to meet a lady and a man. The lady especially really liked me and I liked her. A week later, my foster mom Janet took me out again to the store, and this time the man and lady took me home with them! They told me they are my new parents!
They took me at first to a nice warm room in their house. I really didn't like it and wanted to walk around. The next day, they let me out to roam the house. I have brothers and a sister! I am not sure what I think of any of them yet. I have let them know they can't scare me.
I do know I really like my Mom and Dad. I think I am going to be really happy here!
Good day, and Happy Easter and Passover!

Road Trip!

Hi Friends,
Today I went on a road trip. It wasn't too far but I was really concerned I was not coming back, so I was scared at first. I waited with my new Mom until we went to see my new Doctor. She was nice and said I didn't have to see her again for a year! Mom will continue to give me Lysine 2X a day for my mild eye problem. Plus I have to stay in my room overnight until the end of the week. Otherwise I am happy to say--I HAVE A FUREVER HOME!!
Happy Floofy Purrs,
Alma Jean


New Job!

Hi friends,
I was only at my new home for a few days when my brother Gomez said I was to have a special job here. Like my sister, Marvel Ann, I will be a dancer at Gomez' business, "Taz' Side Door Shows". I think Gomez thought I was one of those cats you could walk all over, but I sure showed him. I told him I wouldn't dance unless I first had use of the company credit card. Time to go shopping!

Hi Friends,
I was so excited to receive the package of dresses I ordered with my company credit card. Marvel Ann put one on right away. I am not too sure of them yet so Mom said I could wait to try one on. Orvis said he will not let me dance at the door without one!

Collar and Tag? I don't think so...

Hi Friends,
I have fit in just fine in my new home. I get along with everyone. I can tell my Mom is pleased that I look very nice in the dresses she has bought for me and my sister, Marvel Ann.
Last week, Mom got me yet another thing to wear. I didn't like this at all as it went around my neck. It only took me a short time to snap it off and throw it away! Mom keeps putting it on, and I keep taking it off.
Who is going to win?

Professional Photo Session!

Hi Friends,
This home has been such an adventure. I like it here very much, even when this past summer I got a weird skin thingy for which I had bad medicine and medicated baths.
All that is over now, and I can enjoy myself, especially my not so little brother, Poco Taz. Because we are the new cats this year, my parents took us for our first professional photo session. I think you will agree, we did very well. We even have some beautiful pictures of both of us snuggled together! All the people there said what nice cats we were.
After I got home from this session, Mom had one of her own. I got to wear pretty dresses and hats. I will be showing these pictures to you over the next few weeks.
In the meantime, I am going to enjoy my first holidays here. And I hope you are enjoying yours, too!
Until next time,
Alma Jean
P.S. You don't have to worry about Northern Lights Photography of St. Clair Shores suing me or Mom for using the photos--Mom bought the rights to them and has a signed letter to prove it!!! Leave it to Orvis, our legal beagle, to remind me to say this.
