Nicknames: Nebbie, The Nebulizer, La La, Nubs, Attention Whore, little one, Nemesis, Nebularum, Nebulina
Birthday: October 11th 2004
Likes: pretending the floor is made of lava, climbing on chairs and people, surveying her domain through large windows, pouncing, singing, running the house, being a princess, climbing the screen door, taunting Congo, demanding to be spoiled.
Pet-Peeves: closed doors, the vaccuum cleaner, going to the vet, not being the center of attention, getting her nails trimmed, bring brushed, being ignored.
Favorite Toy: a little stuffed frog, Congo, catnip noodle, Congo, little chicken, Congo, little glittery pom poms, Congo, STRINGY-THING, the magic bouncy toy, and Congo.
Favorite Nap Spot: under the bed, in the blue chair, wherever Congo wants to sleep, Brian's arm, piles of laundry
Favorite Food: toes (only to nibble), water with ice cubes (very odd), cap'n crunch (only when she can steal some), milk, and especially sharing water with Bryanne
Skills: singing, plotting world domination, being a diva, being demanding
Arrival Story: In a random stroke of luck, Nebula began her plot for world domination one cold December day. Using her super powers of ultimate cuteness and purr force she brainwashed her humans into rescuing her from a pet store. Some might consider her a simple house cat, but she begs to differ.
Bio: Nebula is as adorable as she is demanding. She can be aloof or snuggly, sweet or mischievious. Few have been able to resist her big eyes and spotted tummy.
Favorite Subject: Nebula is Princess of all she surveys, and Congo is her most adoring subject. They wrestle and play tag and occasionally act lovingly towards each other. Nebula knows she has Congo to fulfill her every whim...but she also adores his company.
If Nebbie was a person...: If Nebula was a person she would definately be a celebrity diva, or some sort of royalty. Her tortie attitude and lovely singing voice lead us to believe she would rival all those silly divas out there.
Dream ambition: Nebula aspires to actually learn how to climb walls so she can perch even higher than all her adoring subjects.
I've given it lots of thought...Congo monopolizes way too much of Brian and Bryanne's time by getting them to play fetch with him. My solution is simple, distinguished, and naturally, *brilliant*!!!
I stole a long stringy-thing from a hooded sweatshirt. These strings have always fascinated me. Now whenever I have gone too long without being worshipped (every 30 minutes or so...) I carry my stringy-thing into whichever room the servants are in and demand to be played with. I usually start out pretty subtle...some chirps and meeps...pretty standard fare. The fun part is when the silly humans try to ignore me. I've recently discovered my voice, which is beautiful at a low volume, is even better when I am really loud! I've been practicing all sorts of new songs lately, and although Bryanne seems fairly amused, Brian isn't so happy. I guess 6:30 on Sunday morning is not a good time to try out new material for my repetoire. So sad.
Nevertheless...practice and string-ballet must continue. You have to be good when you are queen of the world.
Wow, it has been a really long time since I was able to dictate a note to my adoring public. I am sorry about that loyal readers, it is very hard to be this adored!
So I had been upset with Brian for a little while, he had started giving Congo treats before me sometimes, and that just is not good! Well, needless to say, when I started withholding Nebby pats, he changed that really quickly. The first day that he didn’t give the silly puppy any treats before me he got pats both in bed and while he was sitting in the living room. He was happy, and I knew once again that I was the dominant kitty in the house. Now however, I am thinking about being mean again since they made me go the vet!
I don’t really mind the vet too much, it is just the trapped in the little box part while we go there that I don’t like. I made it really hard for my Mommy to put me into the box, and I think she was getting fed up with me. Once we actually saw the vet (she is nice, she remembers me from when I was really tiny) it wasn’t too bad, I did get a shot, and some stuff in my nose, and there was something that made me a little sore, and made a really loud noise that made me jump (good thing my Mommy was holding me, Brian jumped as bad as I did!) but none of it really hurt. I did feel a little weird for a couple of days afterward, but everyone was very cuddly, so I guess it is ok.
Brian and Mommy are talking a lot about different places to live, but I have mixed feelings about that. It would be nice to have more room, but from what they are saying I think they are getting another pet if that happens. They are talking about a kitty or a puppy, and there are up’s and down’s to both. A new Kitten would be smaller than me, so I am pretty sure I would still be the top kitty in the house, but if they get one of the ones they are talking about they will all grow up to be bigger than me! And a puppy, oh boy! If they get a puppy that Mommy likes, it should not be a problem, as it will barley be bigger than Congo, but if Brian gets his way, the dog would be huge! Hmm, I will have to talk to them about this further…
Well, it is pretty and snowy this morning, so I think I will rest and then go sing to Mommy here in a little while. So long fans and it won’t be this long until I talk to you again.
It’s a tough life being me. I have not had time to post recently as Bryanne found my new secret stash! I could not believe it, she found all the pom poms and mice that I had been carefully hiding under the stove, and then had the nerve to actually take them and put them away! Now, I only have a couple pom poms hidden around my domain, and they are not nearly enough to continue on my big projects, and are barely enough to let me play. Oh well, I still have the Congo to play with :)
Bryanne has settled down with the camera now, and has gotten into a new hobby. Ponies! Now I know usually cats and ponies are not the closest friends, but these ponies are smaller than me, and have pom pom like hair! They don’t seem to move around much (unless the silly puppy is dragging them around somewhere when Bryanne is not looking) but they make mommy happy and keep her from paying attention to me unless I demand it.
It is funny how a simple meow can get every person in the house to pay attention to me. Congo can be sleeping in another room and I have but to whisper and he sits bolt upright to see if he can be of service. Bryanne meows back to me, and we sing, and if I meow a couple of times Brian even will call back, or ask me to come out and visit. I have such nice servants!
