He loves our drinkwell water fountain. he plays and 'fishes' in it, then patters around the apartment, leaving little watery pawprints behind.
cages. He will never be caged again.
Water fountain, his little fuzzy mouse he carries around in his mouth.
Favorite Nap Spot:
atop the cat tree, beside you on the bed or sofa.
He's had some dietary issues....we're trying a grain free lamb formula.
We think he believes he's a fisher cat. he's always playing in water. He also likes to play with the blind cords.
I got a call from the rescue we work with. Calvin's rescuer was a lovely lady, who was having trouble with her older cats adapt to Calvin. Her elder cat had begun to self mutilate, frustrated with the active and playful little kitten.
They also had trouble with showing Calvin. When she had first gotten Calvin and his sister, they had ringworm, and she had caged them in her basement....for 3 months on the advice of her vet. When their time in 'solitary 'was up, Calvin and his sister were placed for adoption-and immediately his sister, who looked pure snowshoe was scooped up but the woman said she didn't want a cat who wasn't a 'purebred'.
Calvin was taken to petco, but after months in a cage, he became immediately 'cage crazy' attacking the front of the cage and behaving 'oddly'. His rescuer called the rescue to report he wasn't 'adoptable' and they should 'send him to a sanctuary'.
When he was bought to our apartment, the first thing we did was open the door to his cage, and let him out.
In a week, he turned into the best, sweetest, and most wonderful, soft, bunny furred, purrrsonablle young adorable kitten there is. There was never anything wrong with Calvin...he just needed to be part of a cat household where he could be a cat.
Proud to be Samoa's pick as Dreamboat-in-Training #46b for February 2013!
Mother's Day my husband gave me a very special present-recognizing that Calvin was my 'baby' and how much I loved him, he told me Calvin had found his 'furever' home-ours.
Thank you Laura Strickland and Samoa-we know you and your furs saw it in the cards somewhere.
I've never had a kitten that would lay on a pillow and purr into my ear, or lick my face.
We love Calvin.
Calvin was given his full name in honor of the Legendary Calvin here on Catster.

'Being named for a legend, I become one'
Mommy said that to me awhile back. I'm growed now, and as you can probably see, I am truly becoming the wonderful, make you laugh Calvin McCatster...
I can fetch things, and take other cats medicine bottles out of the envelope mommy keeps them in and brings them to her.
I lay on the little table and knock things off. Sometimes mommy and I play a game with it-she puts things on the table, and I knock them off. But I'm so cute she never minds.
I like to do things that make people laugh, like lay on my back under the recliner and stick my head out to startle people.
I love my little foster sister Ringo cause she looks like me.
I know I have a long way to go to be as legendary as you...but I am trying. We love you alot...and we are going to celebrate your RB day by baking a cake later....purrs and love,

It's me, Calvin!
You know what? You know what?
I wasn't feeling good on Sunday and I sleeped the whole day and Monday too.
Well, Tuesday night Daddy took me to the vet. And the vet said I had a very painful URI called a calci virus and I had sores on my throat and tongue.
So I am getting medicine...YUCK!!!!
It's nasty but I take it cause I have to.
The good news is....I got 'dopted!!!!
Don't worry-I didn't go anywhere!
Daddy gave Mommy a card on Sunday for mothers day...and it was from me! It said 'I am yours furever, Mom!
Daddy said he noticed that I am very bonded to the clowder, and also, that I follow Mommy around except when Ij was sick, then I just laid down alot. But I have been feeling better...and playing with my buddies CK and Middy, and reaching up to mommy to be picked up.
So Daddy noticed that I am very much a 'momma's boy. He talked it over with the rescue lady who said 'well, you guys have your plates full. But he said that he really thought about it, and that of all of the boys, I'm the least trouble. I only play in water, and sometimes chew on stuff. And he noticed that when Mommy is sad, it's me and Natalie alot of the time who are closest to her.
So he said I'm home.
Miss Samoa...wondering if you had something to do with it? Or the Calvin I am named after.
It's good to be home...

The Mom here-please purr for Calvin McCatster. He went to the vet last week with an ulcer in his eye. Turned out it as a URI.
He was responding well, and his usual active self. Then Sunday he was quiet, and yesterday, very very quiet.
Today he's squinting (he has eye meds he's been taking) and appears uncomfortable.
We're in the process of waiting for vet office to open so appointment can be made.
Worried about Calvin....my sweet little guy.
Not himself at all, please purr!!!
