   Leave a treat for Bocce

Little girl, Baby girl, Stinky-butt, Miss Priss, Bocce-girl, The Boch

Kitty Complexion:
sleepyvery active
not curiousvery curious
not vocalvery vocal

Quick Bio:
-pound cat-cat rescue


Whistling: for some reason she loves it when anyone whistles, she gets so excited she meows and rubs on anything close to her, she also likes kissing people on the mouth, getting all the attention she can, and napping.

She likes to do the kissing, she's not much for being kissed back.

Favorite Toy:
She loves foamy balls-they bounce well and she can get them flying.

Favorite Nap Spot:
Any box, bag, basket or tight spot that she can squeeze into to lay down. At night she likes being as close to my head as she can get, either on the pillow or on my shoulder.

Favorite Food:
Whatever her 'brother' Marvin doesn't eat. And oddly enough, she doesn't like treats.

Sleeping in the same spot for hours on end. Acting like Marvin is hurting her when they wrestle, so he gives up and then she pounces again as he walks away.

indoors and outdoors

Arrival Story:
My husband threw a Pub Crawl which benefited the local shelter, and through this endeavor we ended up adopting two kitties, Bocce being one of them. She was 10 months when we got her, and she has really been a joy to me. She and I are the girls of our house, and she's really my little buddy. But she loves attention wherever she can get it.

I'm a very vocal kitty and will meow my head off just so I know you are there, and to make sure you know I want attention. Sometimes in the morning or after I nap I am a little hoarse, and I'll try to meow at mom and dad, and they see my mouth open and my little sides trying to push sound out, but it takes a couple tries to get warmed up.

I am catster's cat of the day today!!! How exciting. Catmom put us on here so many years ago, and then life got in the way, and we don't get to visit with our feline friends as often as we'd like. Now there is a 2 month old human at home and he smells funny, but i still try to sit on catmom's lap even when she is holding him.

Thank you catster for choosing me as cat of the day! :)


What a happy girl i am!

my love, my lucky four leaf clover, has sent me the most beautiful shakespearian sonnet! i am the luckiest kit on catster! the happiest kit in the world! here is my special sonnet from my special purrfect poet...

So is it not with me as with that Muse (Sonnets XXI)

So is it not with me as with that Muse
Stirred by a painted beauty to his verse,
Who heaven itself for ornament doth use
And every fair with his fair doth rehearse
Making a couplement of proud compare
With sun and moon, with earth and sea's rich gems,
With April's first-born flowers and all things rare
That heaven's air in this huge rondure hems.
O let me true in love but truly write,
And then believe me: my love is as fair
As any mother's child, though not so bright
As those gold candles fixed in heaven's air:
Let them say more that like of hearsay well;
I will not praise, that purpose not to sell.

-- William Shakespeare

he calls me his 'Muse'...isn't that so romantic? irish is so dreamy....i love you darling!!
