Arrival Story: My mom saw me on an adoptable pet show and thought I was gorgeous. She came to the pound to see me and loved me right away. She told the pound people she wanted to take me home with her, but the stupid shelter wouldn't let her take me home for 10 days because I had kennel cough and was very sick, and even when they gave me to her I was still sick. I'd do really scary things like stop breathing in the middle of the night and cough up blood. My mom used to get very scared for me and she'd hug me all night. Sometimes she'd even cry because she loved me and was scared I wouldn't get better. But my mom never gave up on me even though the doctors told her to, I am healthy now, and we wouldn't trade each other for the world. We've already been through the worst together, the rest of the time is just to have each other. I am my mom's world, and she doesn't know what she'd do without me. Oh, and never tell her this, but I'm pretty lost without her too.
Bio: I was born deaf, though my eyes are not blue. Because I don't hear myself, I can make really funny sounds and be really loud and I am very expressive with my voice. My mom knows when I am angry, when I am confused, when I can't find her and get scared, and when I want something by what I say. I have mild asthma from the kennel cough, but nothing that effects me. The doctors only found it by accident on an x-ray anyway. I lost one of my lives to the kennel cough, and one when I fell down the stairs where mom and I used to live. I'll never tell her how I even got out the door without her seeing, but I fell down 2 flights of stairs and got banged up pretty bad. I really scared myself, and I was limping when I came up. I could never tell her the details of that fall, she'd never let me out of her sight again. Mom guards my other 7 lives really closely now. She can be a real drag sometimes but I know it's because she loves me and she doesn't want me to get hurt or sick.
I have been tagged! That is right I have been tagged by my friend Raza, to participate in Kazumi Joy's meme.
Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Cats who are tagged need to write on their own diary about the seven things and the rules. You need to choose seven cats to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment that they have been tagged and to read your diary.
My seven random facts:
1. I hate catnip. HATE IT!
2. Most people don't like me at first...I can get kind of carried away when playing with new people.
3. I'm deaf
4. The shelter had a lot of trouble getting me adopted - no one seemed to want me. Mom says it's their loss.
5. I'm a gentle giant. I love to play with animals bigger and smaller than me but I always let them win.
6. I have a very wet nose.
7. I refuse to grow up. I turn 7 next month and still play like a kitten.
I know I haven't updated in a while, but cat life doesn't really change much, you know? I'll try to do better from now on though.
One thing I do have to tell you all about is mom got her digital camera working. She's had it forever and never really used it, but for some reason only humans know, she had to play with it and now LOOK at this! I can't even be in my own bed without her pointing that thing at me.
If I see it laying on a table, I am SO going to knock it off and break it. Mark my meows!!!
Wow! It's been a long time since I updated. Sorry guys! My life gets busy sometimes with all the sleeping, eating, playing, pets, and napping.
Mom has a new job, so our schedule is all messed up and I don't know when it's time for what anymore. I know when it's time to snuggle and sleep though. That's still my favorite part of the day. But I'm so confused because I eat at different times now, Mom gets up at all different times, and comes home at all different times. I hate change!
Veronica is over again this weekend, and I still love chasing her around. I'm not sure how she feels about that though. Just goes to show some things stay the same.
