I work at a church preschool and one Thursday morning we heard this horrendous crying coming from the woods behind the school. It was awful! We knew it was a cat, but it sounded like a baby crying. Close! A baby kitty. We walked into the woods a bit calling here kitty-kitty, and we began to see a little black image. We had JUST rescued a black cat that previous Monday, it was in our sandbox, and luckily, we found a home for him the same day. As this one got closer, it was obvious that it was a brother to the first black cat, same age, same markings, and we had found two empty cans of cat food that Monday when we found the first cat. Someone had dropped them here, knowing that a bunch of crazy cat women worked at this church! I had my husband bring a can of food and the cage, and of course, "the cat whisperer", as my husband has been named, got him to walk right up to him and he scooped him into the cage easily. We brought him into the office, put the food on a paper plate and he devoured it, all the while making this hilarious "nom-nom-nom" noise while eating. We were cracking up...I had never heard a cat do that before. Every one else I worked with was already overflowing with stray cats, and I already had 2 and a dog....but I agreed to bring him "to my garage" until I could find him a home. This cat....I cannot even tell you how sweet and THANKFUL he was to be out of those woods! He ate and immediately nestled into my neck and shoulder, purring loudly, and went to sleep. By the next day, we moved him to our spare room, put some frontline on him, and were still actively trying to find him a home. We have one cat, Beep, who HATES other cats, and we already have to keep separated at ALL TIMES from Taffy, our other cat. How could we keep one more? We also have a doberman, who loves our current cats, but was a puppy with them, and was not crazy about other cats. But this kitty....oh my, he has to be on your lap, on your neck, on your shoulder, at ALL TIMES. He is the most lovable cat I've ever known. He has stolen our hearts. We adore him. Taffy took to him easily and they are like brothers. He will be getting neutered in a month or so, he is only about maybe 4 months old now. We are in love!
We are pretty confident he has some Siamese in him. He sort of has the head of one and VOCAL! Omg!!! If you have ever had a Siamese, you would have no doubt this boy has a lot of it in him. He is the loudest, most vocal thing, he does the nom-nom thing when he eats, like many Siamese cats do. He is kind of sleek like a Siamese too.

Mom says I have been such a naughty boy lately, but I just like having fun! Mom says that since I'm almost a year old that maybe I ought to calm down a little bit, but I don't think so....cuz you know mom is going to miss all this cute kitten stuff when I'm a big lazy cat like my brother Taffy and my evil sister Beep. My most favorite thing to do is to climb the curtains....hee, hee, hee! I climb way up to the top and sit on top of the curtain rod! A few weeks ago, I learned how to open the drawer in the kitchen that holds the CATNIP!!!! I got it open...chewed through the bag, and dad found me lying in a big pile of it on the kitchen floor. He tried to snap a picture, but I moved to fast. Then I knocked over an entire bag of bird seed....and it was a BIGGGGG bag, and it went all over the floor! Then, mom scooped it all up and put it in a container, and while she turned around for 30 seconds, I knocked it over again :) You should see the nasty look I got from my big brother Taffy.....he does NOT approve of my shenanigans....he's no fun. I'm going to enjoy being a kitten for a little while longer, and I bet mom secretly is enjoying my funny stuff that I do too. How can she not, I am SOOOOO adorable!!!

I am such a happy boy. Mom and dad rescued me from the woods on December 7th, took me home where I am living in the lap of luxury, compared to what I was living like. I have a big sister, she is a doberman, but she is really nice, and a big brother Taffy. (There is another cat too but apparently she is mean and can't be out the same time as me but she has hissed at me a few times under the door, she has NO manners). Everyone who meets me falls in love with me. If there is a lap, I must be on it...that is if I'm not zipping around the house like a banshee, I like to do that. Mom bought me a HUGE new armarkat cat tree that I love to climb up to the tippy top and be king of the world. I got "fixed", whatever that means, on Monday, and guess what? All of the techs at the vet fell in love with me too. When mom got there to pick me up they were talking to me because I LOVE to talk! Mom thinks I must have some Siamese cat in me, because I am REALLY loud and talk all the time. The vet said that my teeth were kind of worn down and he thought I'd been out in the woods for a while, probably eating who knows what. He said I am just a little cat but I may be as much as a year old, even though I am pretty small. I'm just so happy that I have my family, I love them so much, and I love having Taffy, my big bubby, because he snuggles up to me and keeps me warm when no one is home. I have to be snuggling someone at all times or I just get lonely. I think I am the luckiest kitty in the world, I just love my new home. Mom says every time she sees the woods that I was living in, which is behind her work, she is a little sad thinking that I was living out there all alone. Mom said she really didn't want a 3rd cat, that our house was crowded enough, but I made it impossible for her and the rest of the family not to fall madly in love with me and now she can't imagine me not being here. Yep, I am one lucky little fella!

I had a bummy day. I had to go and get my first set of cat shots today, and I didn't like it one little bit. First of all, mom took me up to the pet store where she buys our food, and they were having a shot clinic, and there were these two yippy dachsunds up there raising the biggest ruckus ever. I was wishing for ear plugs. When I finally got to see the vet, my mom told the vet how she saved me and my brother (who she found a great home for) from the woods behind her work, and the vet told her that he believed I was more like 5-6 months old, or even older. I guess mom thought I was about 3-4 months old. But I already had my new teeth, and the vet said they had been worn down a bit, from being out in the woods and eating all of the things I had been eating. He said I was just going to be a small cat. So I got my kitty shots and some nasty de worming medicine....YUK! But I am so happy to have my new home. I love every one....well, I am warming up to the big dumb dog. She is soooo big, something called a doberman! All I know is she is as big as a horse. But she loves the other two kitties that live in the house with me, and I am slowly warming up to her, but I will put the smackdown on her if she gets too in my face, and I wish she would get that big nose out of my butt!!! Apparently, cat butts are her favorite thing in the world. I think I am the luckiest cat in the world, am so glad that I don't have to go cold and hungry in those big nasty woods. I am one lucky little fella....even if today was kind of poopy :)
