Arrival Story:

She currently lives with her stepsister Freya, both proud to be Upper East Side kitties! Her real blood sister, Gilda, lives with other mommy Kimberly in Chicago... We miss them!

I'm getting married.... well, maybe

Well, it's official. I proposed to Mommy, and she said yes. I don't think I'm going to go through with the wedding though, because I think she gave more credit to Daddy and wants to marry him more. Here's the story and let me know what you think...

So last week, I was minding my own business, lounging around while Mommy was packing for a trip. All of a sudden, Daddy grabs me and has the audacity to put my collar on! Now don't get me wrong, my collar that Auntie got me is really cool (purple with rhinestone letters spelling my name, very Baby Phat!) but I absolutely hate wearing it. Who needs a collar when you're an indoor kitty? Anyway, I was very upset that he was putting this thing on me until he explained that I had a very important job to do. You see, he was putting a big diamond ring on my collar in hopes that Mommy would see it and wear it. I guess Daddy thought Mommy might want some bling as well. Apparently, I was asking her to marry me. I thought, well, that's not so bad! I love Mommy. It would be great to marry her. Plus, I wouldn't have to change my last name, because it's already the same as hers. So, I decided to go along with the plan and moped next to Mommy until she saw me wearing my collar. It worked! She bent down to talk to me and saw the ring! But then, see here's the bad part, Daddy stole the show! He took the ring and asked Mommy to marry him instead... and she said yes! I was very angry at first. He made me wear the collar, look all cute and get her attention, give her the ring, and then took away my spot light!

I guess the more I think about it, Mommy is best as a mommy and not as a wife. I mean, interspecies lesbian incest relationships are doomed to failure and Daddy is such a great guy. It would be nice to finally take his name and be a full family. So you know what? It's okay, Mommy. You go ahead and marry Daddy. My only request is that you give me extra hugs once in awhile. Meow.


Okay, what's going on???

My life has completely turned upside down lately! Glad I have my charm and good looks still, because my life sure isn't the same as it used to be. First of all, I gained weight. The big man with the shiny silver table that pokes me a lot (mommy calls him “the vet”) told me I weigh ten pounds now! Ten pounds?? Wasn’t I the runt of the litter? I wanted to complain to sis Gilda, but I don’t want to seem like I’m showing off. I love her, but she’s a little… you know…. big boned. And speaking of sisters, do you know what happened in the last two weeks? Not only did I get separated from Gilda (I heard permanently!), I lost my other mommy, gained a daddy AND a stepsister! No lie!! You can’t make this stuff up, not even in a Danielle Cat-Steele novel! Mommy decided to move away and live with Uncle Joe, who will be Daddy Joe once he officially adopts me. Although, I told mommy that I don’t want to change my last name. I prefer being a Mattila. Anyway, just like that, I have a new sister! Freya was a huge (or should I say scrawny and sickly) nuisance for the first week. I couldn’t stand her!! She took my spot on the bed, tried to eat my food, stunk up the litter box… and there was nothing I could about it! Now that we’re in a new place together, I realized she’s pretty cool. She’s a lot of fun to play with, especially since she has no balancing skills or depth perception. It’s fun laying the smack down on her when she doesn’t know the proper stalking tactics. At first I was traumatized by all of this, but you know what? Life might be pretty good on 71st Street. I’ve got my mommy, who loves me dearly. I have my health, a new home, new furniture to snuggle on, and of course… I still have my charm and good looks! So, overall, I think this was a good life transition. I think I’ll stick around to see what happens next. Meow.


Diary Pick of the Day!! C List Celebrity!

That’s right, I’ve made it! Mommy received a fabulous message today that I’m one of “today’s picks” for my diary entries! I think this is my big break. I was contemplating treating myself to a mani/pedi to celebrate, but then I remembered the following things:
- There is no monetary compensation for being a witty kitty on Catster, so I can’t pay for it.
- I don’t think the little Asian ladies down the street would actually want to paint my nails like they do for mommy.
In any case, I’m still very excited that my career is taking off. I think I’m going to go the Paris Hilton route and be famous for being pretty and not much else. I do have some hefty vocal cords, so I may try a singing career next. However, I could never leave my bread and butter: writing about myself! Thanks for reading to anyone who has taken the time to browse my entries! I’m very thankful to all of my adoring fans. I will never forget the little…um, errr, I mean big people/kitties!
