Arrival Story:
We got our first picture of Linux via email from a Jay of Compri Cattery. We loved him and drove 4 hours to Orlando to meet him at a Cat Show. When I held him in my arms and looked into his blue eyes it was love at first sight. The drive home was hard he hates cars and meowed until we put Latin Jazz. He has very refined taste

I was born in St. Augustine and live in South Florida. My cat parents are prize winners. I am my mommies first kitty. Dad's had a few on the side before mommy. I am very independent and was named Linux because mommy and daddy are computer geeks and I was named after the Unix based computer operating system Linux. I tend to be on the quiet side and rarely meow. When I do meow my parent say I need more batteries because it's not quite a meow.

What do you mean it’s too early to feed me?
I am up and I am hungry same time as always but the silly box with the glowing numbers still hasn’t chimed. I think that box is broken. I know it wasn’t me. For some weird reason the box says it’s 4:33
Why are they sleeping past normal time? I tell you they’ll be late. I have to climb for they have to be at work before eight.
What!! They shush me and tell me to go to sleep.
What do you mean it’s too early to feed me?
Come on!! Let’s go. You need to get up! Even if it’s dark and the sun hasn’t come up.
Again they tell me go back to sleep!
What do you mean it’s too early to feed me?
Again I plead to them, it’s the right time. I need my food what punishment what a crime!
Again they tell me go back bed. I run, I jump I have to be fed.
What do you mean it’s too early to feed me?
This daylight saving time oh what a pain, who do I go to, where do I complain.

I am not a lazy cat as some people may think.
I start my mornings really early and have no idea what I go thru.

Here is my morning schedule:

5:00AM Make self cleaning litterbox go off while the folks are sleeping so they can wake up.
5:15AM plan has failed must run up and downstairs and ring the hanging bells.
5:30AM PlanB, must go downstairs and knock something of the table to make loud sound to wake them up.
5:45AM Plan worked. The mother has gotten up she goes to the bathroom and tells me go back to sleep.
6:00AM Bring them my toy and meow to start playing. Mother shushes me to go to bed!
6:15AM Run as fast as I can and jump on the window and make ruckus to and open vertical blinds and let the sun shine thru.
6:30AM The mother has woken up and picks me up and locks me out of the bedroom.
6:45AM start banging on door to let me in.
7:00AM The mother opens the door and tells me to go to sleep.
7:30AM Start scratching the closet door to manage to get it open and fill their clothes with hair.
7:35AM oh oh!! the mother picks me up and locks me out of the room again.
7:45AM start playing with toys and make loud sounds on wooden floors
8:00AM I have won!!! The mother comes finally down to feed me.
8:15AM go to litterbox
8:30AM Take nap. I have worked soo hard this morning. I am tired now.


Gaining my couch privaleges.

I have gained the sofa privileges again!!! Yeah…
You have to understand I wasn't allowed on the couch when I was smaller.
I will admit it. It is shameful I Linux have short legs and was not a great jumper.
I missed and scratched the leather sofa. So I lost my sofa privileges.
But the other day I jumped and sat there while mom was watching TV and she looked at me and I gave her my big round blue eyes don't I look adorable here look. To my surprise she didn't say anything. I just jumped and sat down no monkey business.
Mom was cool with that. Then I did it again and she didn't say anything. Then the next day dad was home and I jumped and he was going to say something but mom told him. He's sitting quietly and he's not trying to get to the top of the sofa.
So he relaxed and ever since I've been allowed back on the sofa.
It's good to be me!!
