Gotcha Date:
November 12th 2012

Birthday:
May 27th 2011

Coloration:
Chocolate

Likes:
EATING! Playing with fuzzy mice and kitty teasers. Any kind of petting starts her motor in seconds - head scratches, stroking her back, tummy rubs. Playing chase with Saphira at warp speed. ANYTHING that dangles. Did I mention EATING?

Pet-Peeves:
None really, now that my kitty sisfur Saphira seems to finally think I am an OK kitty and we play together. I don't even mind trips to have my nails trimmed.

Favorite Toy:
Anything she can chase or jump for. Fuzzy mice to play fetch with, kitty teasers (she does athletic leaps into the air for them). Anything that dangles, especially cords for things like earphones, ping pong balls in the (dry) bath tub

Favorite Nap Spot:
Originally on her bed, usually behind or under the pillows. Now usually on our big heated waterbed, sometimes under the covers nibbling daddy's toes. Any window where she can watch the birdies. A sunlit spot in the living room. Top of any sofa

Favorite Food:
So far, anything! She snarfs down her Soulistic Good Karma Chicken and grain free dry food like she is starving. Any kitty treats, sliced turkey.

Skills:
Attacking fuzzy toys of all kinds, sometimes drowning them in her water dish, stealing hearts, PURRING! Chasing (and being chased) around the house with her sisfur Saphira (faster than a speeding bullet) catching thrown mousies in midair

Dwells:
indoors

Arrival Story:
Our daughters surprised us with our first Ocicat, Saphira, Christmas 2011, and she has been a total joy. We had been idly talking about adopting another one so Saphira could have a playmate, when one of those daughters told us that the breeder where they found Saphira, House of Oci in Riverside, CA, had some more Ocis available. We checked and found that he still had a cute ebony silver kitten and a young adult chocolate spotted female (18 months old) that he described as "the sweetest cat he had ever met". Since he had done such a wonderful job raising Saphira, we trusted Jesse to have raised another wonderful companion animal. We both went down and met Viola, and paid for her on the spot, and we picked her the following weekend. She has settled in well and has relaxed a lot and has become very playful and curious about her new home. It took about a month for Saphira to settle down and accept her new friend, but now they both sleep on our bed at night, hang out together a lot, and chase each other around the house. Sometimes they don't notice when humans get in their way. Our feet sometimes suffer, but these two spotted girls are both absolute joys!

Bio:
It has been almost six months since Viola joined our family, and she has become a much loved addition along with Saphira. They both share many of the common traits that Oci owners love, their intelligence, playfulness, and devotion to their humans. They are also different from each other in many ways, but those differences are kind of complementary. Saphira is the more restrained, regal, queen of her domain. Still playful, but on her own terms - for example, she loves to play fetch, but only when SHE chooses to. She will sit on the bed and stare at me with that intelligent gaze of hers, always makes me wish I could know what was going on inside that pretty head of hers. Viola's gaze seems more to indicate curiosity and playfulness. Viola, even though chronologically an adult kitty, still behaves like a kitten, the curious and playful young princess. ALWAYS up for a game of fetch, and always tearing around the house at warp speed. She is an absolute little fireball! She is curious about everything! So far I have removed her from the dryer, dishwasher, several closets (repeatedly), and have stopped her from checking out the inside of our refrigerator. When I mentioned to the breeder where both of our girls were acquired how happy we were that Saphira stayed off the kitchen counters, he told me that he had not had time to train Viola this way and that would be my job. Some job! Every time she jumped on the counter, I would give her a firm "NO" and shoo her off. This happened maybe four or five times, and she has never done it since. As I often say, they are both just absolute joys! The only thing more fun than an Ocicat is two of them!

It seems like only yesterday that daddy and meowmy drove down from their home to bring me there to join my big sisfur as part of their furmily, but it was actually two whole years ago! Saphira and I quickly became furiends, and we love chasing each other all over the house, playing fetch with them (I play catch too!), and napping all over the house, especially on their big bed. The grub is pretty good too, and I love the kitty treats! I was a "little" 18 month old overgrown kitten then, and even though I am 3 1/2 now, I still feel and play like a kitten. They really love the fact that I never really grew into my ears, they are still very prominent and they think they are one of my cutest features.

One of the best things has been all the nice furiends I have made here on Catster, and are really happy that after that nasty scare early this year about our Catster community going away, things changed and we are all still here!

 

A really great day to remember and some new (to us) food we- LOVE

Hi to all my furiends, I want to purr about several things in one entry, since Catster still has some fleas that seem to affect diaries.

Today is the 45th anniversary of a truly great day in history, when a great human named Neil Armstrong became the very first person to put his pawprint on the moon. We all know about the cow who jumped over the moon, but he did not land there. Our human grandpa, who went to the bridge long ago, helped develop the big rocket that took them there, and we are very pawroud of him and everyone who helped make this happen.

Ever since my very picky sisfur Saphira joined the pawrents over two years ago, they have tried to find a healthy canned food she would eat, something better than the Fancy Feast that our breeder fed us and she seems to like. Not a problem for me, I eat almost ANYTHING. They finally found one, it is really healthy and we BOTH love it! It is called Soulistic, and only Petco sells it. Daddy gets the Good Karma Chicken flavor, and it is great! It is on sale until August 9, eight cans for the price of six.

Daddy needs to apawlogize to all of our furiends, I was recently honored with several DDP picks and between all the Catster fleas and being kind of busy he never acknowledged the prezzies and pawmails of concatulations from our furiends. I have hissed and growled at him over this!

Happy purrs to everycat!
