This has been a great week at the jungle kitty house! First on Sunday my sisfur Viola was Cat of the Day, and today is my birthday! I'm four today! Thanks to all who have sent me concatulations and prezzies, I appreciate them! I may be getting older, but I started out my morning as I usually do, with an after breakfast game of fetch with daddy and meowmy. They say I still play like a kitten. Curled up beside him now to help him write this entry.

 

My sisfur Viola is Cat of the Day! How cool is that!

My sisfur Viola is the Catster Cat of the Day today! We are all purring happily! Daddy promises to get her something nice when he goes out shopping later, and that usually means I get something too!

But now she will be impossible to live with: We now each have a COTD and DOTD pick, but she has FIVE DDP picks and I only have two! I need to talk to my diary assistant about this situation!

But I still am the first Ocicat around here!

 

Sad news about a furiend...

Our Catster furiend Poo has been bravely fighting cancer since April, and today he lost his battle. He was only 12 years young. We would appreciate it if any of our furiends who feel like it would drop a pawmail or gift to his pawrents. His Catster page is:

Thank you all!

Saphira and her furmily

 

OMC, dad just found that I was a championship kitty in 2011!

Daddy was just doing some research online about my sisfur Viola's daddy cat Giovanni, who we already knew was a prize winning show cat, when guess what? He discovered that I was also on the TICA list of championship Ocicats for 2011! Giovanni was there at number six, as he expected, but who is on the list at number twenty one? Little ole' ME! We all feel so honored! But daddy said that I was ALWAYS a champion in their hearts. Here is the TICA page he found:

An anniversary for Saphira (updated 6/29/13)

Almost let this day slip by, it was eighteen months ago last Friday that Saphira joined our family, and her arrival has really changed our lives, in really nice ways. As I have told you in the past, she is not our first kitty, our first three were shelter rescues adopted about 39 years ago, even before we were married. One of those was Nonsense, a cute little grey spotted kitten, who turned out to be an Egyptian Mau, and we learned from her how wonderful spotted kitties can be.

We had never heard of the Ocicat breed before Saphira appeared, a surprise Christmas gift from our daughters. There were a few days between Christmas, when I received a framed photo of Saphira with the remark, "Oh your gift is not the picture, it's the cat!", and the time that she joined us. Even before Saphira arrived, I was asked over and over, "Is she the best present ever?" The answer now is, "Absolutely!!!"

We soon were totally taken by how beautiful, intelligent, playful, loyal, and well behaved she is. I described her as an absolute joy then, and we feel the same now, only more so. So much so that we adopted Viola, another beautiful Oci, both as a playmate for Saphira and because we figured that two Ocis must be at least twice as much fun as one. We were sure right about that! They love to play together, chasing each other all over the house. We do have to watch out now to avoid being hit by flying kitties.

Now that we have had the pleasure of living with two of these wonderful felines, it is hard to imagine life without them. In all our years with cats, we have never seen any with the combination of wonderful characteristics of our two spotted girls. Anyone looking for an intelligent, loyal, playful, well behaved companion should look into these little jungle cats, but be prepared to have them bug you to play with them (ours both love fetch), to be followed all over the place including the bath, and remember that once they take over your bed, you may be allowed to share it with them if you are good. I know I am starting to sound like an Ocicat salesman, but their wonderful personalities tend to affect people that way.

We want to thank all of our Catster friends for their pawmails, prezzies, friend requests, and generally making us feel welcome and loved. You are the nicest bunch of kitties around!

 

OMC! DDP Again!

Daddy woke me up today with the news that I am a DDP kitty! That is just pawtastic! Especially after daddy and meomy did one of those things Ocicats HATE, they abandoned us again, this time they left Friday afternoon for a place called Laughlin, Nevada, for something called a concert. A lady named Martina McBride, they say she is a really good singer, I think that means she meows really well. Anyway, they came back the next afternoon, so we were not left alone for TOO long, and of course I now have my sisfur Viola for company. We had fun while they were gone, and did not mess the place up TOO badly!

Thanks to my furiends for their nice pawmails concatulatons.

 

My sisfur Viola is a DDP (AGAIN!), MOL!

My sisfur Viola is DDP again, and she is really walking around with her pretty little nose in the air that this is her FOURTH time! I had to remind her about which one of us had both DOTD and DDP FIRST, and which one of us is the only one to be picked as COTD so far... she can be irritating at times, but we still love playing together.

 

Daddy got us a new kitty drinking fountain, but Viola thinks- it's a toy!

Daddy got us a new kitty drinking fountain, since he saw us drinking from a fountain in the living room. I drink from it, but Viola thinks it is a toy and she plays in it! I am way too dignified and regal for that kind of kitten childishness. She still drinks from it too!

 

Sorry it has been so long, but the Pawrents have been busy.- My four pawed sisfur Melanie is a doctor now!

Last month we were abandoned by the Pawrents for two whole days! They told us later that they were in a place called Arizona to see their human daughter Melanie receive something called a PhD. Seems she is now some kind of doctor, but not the kind that takes care of sick kitties or even sick humans. They say that she will now be teaching something called criminology at a university in a place called Reno. It gets even colder and snows more there than it does here. BRRRRR!

Melanie is very special to my sisfur Viola and me, she is one of the nice people (along with Nina, their other human daughter) who gave the Pawrents the best Christmas present ever, ME! And they loved me so much that they wanted another Ocicat to keep me company, so they adopted another wonderful Oci, Viola!

So concatulations to Dr. Mellie (as we call her around here now)!

I guess we forgive them for abandoning us, just as long as it does not happen again!
