A sad anniversary...

February 1st 2013 1:00 pm

Daddy just reminded me that today is a very sad anniversary. Daddy is what he calls a "space geek", and used to work on space stuff. This is the tenth anniversary of a very sad day in space history... On February 1, 2003, the space shuttle Columbia was returning to earth at the end of a successful mission. As it reached the point where heat really built up, a hole in the left wing caused by a piece of insulation the broke free from the tank during launch allowed hot gas to enter the wing and cause damage that ultimately led to the loss of the spacecraft and crew. We are purring very sadly in memory of these brave explorers. Like most of us kitties, they were very curious. They died trying to help us learn more about the universe.


My sisfur Viola is a DDP, MOL!

My new sisfur is a DDP today, how cool is that? Of course she is going to be impossible to live with, but we are all really pawroud of her. I am going to have to keep reminding her that I am still the top cat in this house, having already been COTD, DOTD, AND DDP! But she is still a pretty nice Ocicat, though I tend to be a bit jealous of her spots, since they are darker than mine!


Having a sisfur is pretty nice after all!

Daddy has been telling you how I have been kind of hissy with my new sisfur Viola, so I thought I should let you know how we are doing. We are getting along much better now, we touch noses a lot, and we also chase each other all over the house really fast. Not sure if meowmy and daddy always like that, because sometimes while we are running we are not really looking where we are going, and we accidentally run into them at warp speed. They still think we are pretty cute when we do that. We also follow them around the house together, and both of us are pretty good about coming when called. This having a sisfur thing is really starting to be fun!


Happy Mew Year!

To everycat from Saphira, her sisfur Viola, her pawrents and the rest of her two pawed family.


Saphira and her sisfur Viola are playing together a lot now

Another note from their dad:

Saphira and Viola's relationship continues to improve, still a hiss and a growl from Saphira once in awhile, but also some touching of noses and a lot of play, chasing each other around the house a lot. Of course they both sleep with us every night and also nap on our bed when we are watching TV. Usually Saphira sleeps with Terri and Viola is with me, but sometimes one of us is lucky enough to have two spotted jungle cats using us for a nap spot. Yesterday I had Saphira curled up on my legs while Viola had her head on my ankle. Of course movement on my part was impossible, but then again, with two sweet Ocis to keep me company, why would I want to move?

Another sales job from me... anyone who might enjoy a beautiful spotted jungle cat who is intelligent, loyal, loving, and very playful and entertaining should look at an Ocicat, they are just a joy! Anyone in Southern California interested can pawmail me and I can give you the contact info for the breeder we adopted our two girls from, he is just a great breeder who loves his kitties, and it shows in our two wonderful Ocis.


Very sad purrs today...

With tearstained paws Saphira, Viola, and their pawrents purring very sadly for all the victims of that horrible school shooting in Connecticut.

I am starting to listen to meowmy and daddy and am becoming more friendly with Viola. She is actually pretty nice, and I like chasing her and batting at her tail. We both sleep with meowmy and daddy now, and they seem to like that. The think that both of our spots are really pretty!


OMC! COTD! Me??? How purrfect is that!

Daddy just told me I am the Catster's Cat of the Day for today! I am so surprised and honored! All paws up from all of us to the Top Cats at Catster and all of our furiends here. Thank mew to all of you for all the nice pawmails, gifts, and furiend requests. Daddy has apologized to everyone for not noticing the pawmail telling us about this honor earlier, but his excuse is that he has had a very busy day, and with all the other mail from our furiends at Catster, that mail got pushed down in the email list and he didn't notice it earlier. A likely story! And I have been SOOOO nice lately, hissing less at my new sisfur Viola and even letting her share my nice big water bed with me, along with meowmy and daddy of course, who also get to sleep here.


More getting to know Viola, she still makes me hiss

More from Saphira's dad...

About time for an update... Viola had really been showing that she wanted to explore the rest of the house, but we were still worried about Saphira possibly harming her, so for a time we would confine Saphira to our bedroom, not a huge problem for her as she spends a lot of time here and it is where her toys, kitty box, and bed (our waterbed!) are located, and it is where she is fed. We then let Viola have the run of the house, and she loves it! One thing her breeder failed to mention about her was her speed: When she wants to work off some energy, she is faster than a speeding bullet! "Her" room is at one end of a hall. It leads past another bedroom, then empties into the entry. On the other side is our dining room. The entry, dining room, and living room are very open, with only oak railings separating the living room from the other areas. From her room to the end of the dining room she has almost 50 feet of uninterrupted running room, and she uses ALL of it! She will tear down the hall, bump into a box at the end of the dining room, then dash into the living room and from there back into the entry, into the hall, and back to her room. She is an absolute little fireball!

We also started letting them meet in our bedroom, larger and Saphira's home turf. She still hisses and growls a bit, and sometimes chases Viola, but no injuries have resulted. Since then we have let them both loose in the house most of the day, and no further problems other than the old hissing, growling, and chases. Viola actually will walk toward Saphira, I get the impression that she might actually like to play. She now spends some time in our bed, think she is starting to like us!
Last night we had what I think was a very good thing. Viola was curled up next to Terri in bed, and I was on the other side working on my laptop. Saphira jumped up on the rail on my side, something she does often. Seeing her nemesis curled up by mommy, she hissed a couple of times, then proceeded to curl up beside me! They stayed like that for a couple of hours, about four feet apart, with no more complaints from Saphira. We are still having Viola sleep in her room at night, just in case they should tangle at the other end of the house while we are asleep, but other that they both are loose most of the time. The only exception is feeding, with Saphira tending to graze while Viola snarfs down her food in nothing flat, she would end up with most of the food and Saphira would probably starve!


Viola and Saphira's first paw to paw meeting

From Saphira and Viola's dad (posting in both Saphira and Viola's diaries):

After a fair amount of time spent gradually introducing them with a physical barrier (baby gate), we took Saphira down to have her claws trimmed (just in case), then let them get together for the first time in the bedroom where Viola has been hanging out. Results were kind of mixed, but I view kind of positively. Both of them spent a lot of time walking around the room, not getting too close for quite a while. Saphira was sniffing everything, she did hiss whenever she was close to Viola, but for the most part no really aggressive moves. Maybe a few growls from Viola, but again no aggressive moves. We kept them together (with us there all the time) for over an hour. Toward the end of that time, Saphira moved toward Viola a few times, who jumped on a desk or dresser to evade her. At this point we thought it best to give them a breather and let them both relax and eat. Bottom line was that no actual physical encounter resulted, which I take as a good thing. Thinking about maybe one night having Saphira sleep in the bedroom where Viola has been, and let Viola sleep with us, where Saphira spends most of her time. More to follow!
