"My grandma kitty brought my furmom and her sibs to eat at Lady Dolly's house and my fur mom was the only one Lady Dolly's Mom couldn't trap & get to a shelter. She brought me & my sibs back the next year and the humans were finally able to trap us."
Likes: My new Mom brushes me and it feels almost like when I was with my fur mom. It makes me purr and roll around happily! All the big humans here pet me, hold me, and want to make me feel at home.
Favorite Toy: My white mousie and the feather wand toy.
Favorite Food: Whatever's in Mike & Evie's dishes. It's the thrill of getting away with it!
Skills: I am learning all about living in a house with humans. I’m a fast learner, I mastered the litter box the very first day and despite being 10 weeks old and semi-feral I turned on my purr motor within 10 minutes of the first time my new Mom touched me.
Arrival Story: My fur brother Mike's kitty wife Lady Dolly lives in Washington State, where her Mom fed my fur Grandma and her kittens in the summer of 2012 and managed to get all of them to a shelter except for the one who ended up becoming my fur mom. On October 12, 2013 my fur mom brought the second generation, me and my two siblings, to stay under the hot tub at Lady Dolly’s house too. Lady Dolly’s Mom fed us all and wanted very badly to catch us before her family went to Arizona for the winter, but we were all very wild. Finally with the help of a nice rescue lady they got my two siblings on Nov. 26th, while I stepped into the trap two days later on Thanksgiving. My new Mom came down the next day to pick me up and drive me all the way back to Canada. That makes me an international traveler! On my very first night in my new home, my fur Mom was trapped also.

And Mom sure went all out to celebrate, would you believe she put together a great big green cat toy holder with a whole bunch of fun things hanging from it? Evie says it’s something called a “Christmas Tree” but I think it’s all about me. After all, it went up last year around my Gotcha Day time too. I think it’s a tradition just for ME! Then for a special Gotcha Day lunch, Mom got some grocery store fried chicken and gave pieces to each of us. That’s because it was Albertson’s fried chicken that lured me and the rest of my fur family into the cat traps two years ago.
I sure didn’t know what to expect when I huddled in the back of the big kitty carrier on that long car ride to my forever home, but the whole thing turned out so well that I have even forgiven Angel Mallow for that hip-check into the trap while I was still making up my mind whether it was safe. Why, I have a brother who plays and rassles with me and gives me baths, a sister who doesn’t want to rassle but will nap with me and wash my ears, lots of toys to play with and a Mom & Big Bro Will who feed me and give the nicest cuddles and belly rubs. Not to mention so many wonderful Catster friends!
Special Gotcha Day thanks to two special humans who became Angels this past year: Angel Mama Janada, who called me Black Bear and worked so hard to trap me and my fur family, and to our Angel Dad who told Mom YES, we can give a home to a little wild baby kitty & and named me Mojo before I even came to live here! I am purring with happiness on my very special day!
The wind has been blowing and howling, Mikey & I were watching out the kitchen sliding door all the leaves blowing across the back yard. Then there was a skittering and I came running out into the living room with Mikey behind me. We were both pretty scared, I hid behind the couch! So Mom went & looked and she didn't see a thing, but then later she saw the traffic slowing down & when she checked there was a TREE blown right across the road, just about half a block up! And she knew what had scared Mikey & me!
And then there's Miss Special Day Evie, she just sat on the big old trunk next to Mom's chair, eating her caviar & didn't notice a thing while I was all hyper & wouldn't go back in the kitchen for a long time. There was to much noise going on up the road for MY liking while the humans were cutting up that tree and getting it out of the way. Mom told me everything was fine and there was nothing that would come in here and hurt me, but I don't know .... would YOU trust the judgement of a being who doesn't even hide under the bed when strangers come over?
Well that lazy Mikey slept ALL Christmas morning! Evie & I helped with the unwrapping of presents and we got first dibs at the catnip stuff. And was there ever catnip stuff! We got a mousey with a velcro bottom (blush) and you stuff him with your own 'nip! We got a weird bird in an egg toy that chirps if you whack it. So what did I do but right away start pulling the coloured feathers out and trying to eat them. Mom was not impressed by that. And I tried to give the mousey a bath because he had catnip all over him!
Evie & I played in the paper and it was fun, even without Mikey to come stick up for me. Evie whomped me once but it wasn't so bad. Now Mikey is up and he's enjoying the stuff, too. We got a mat that Friday's Mom makes, it has 'nip INSIDE it and Evie & Mikey & I were rolling all over that. I like this Christmas business!
Big Sis Becky came back last night but I still went under the bed when I first heard her at the door and didn't come back out till I heard the door close behind her. Big Bro Joe came, too. The humans sounded like they were having fun, but I was still suspicious. I'm braver than I used to be, though. LAST year even after strangers left, it took me about half an hour before I'd come back out to sniff around. Evie says "that's fine, she's MY Becky and you're not allowed anyway". Well HUMPH to stuck-up Evie! She thinks she owns ALL the humans, mol.
Uh-oh, do you think she heard me? I hear her coming ... thump, thump, WHUMP!
