Mom Brought Home a Kitten!

September 27th 2008 7:16 pm
[ View A Comments ]

I guess my new sister is here. Her name is Betzy and she mostly stays in the bathroom. Mom says she has to stay there until she gets her shots. She was supposed to go to the vet today, but something went wrong, so she won't go until next week. That's fine by me because I don't like her much right now, so the bathroom seems like a good place to leave her.
She's pretty cute and purrs a lot, so I'll probably grow to like her. She was found behind a dumpster so we don't know exactly how old she is-maybe 2 months. She's about 2-3 pounds, pretty little.
Everycat go check out her page and welcome her to Catster.


Getting a new Sibling?

I've been the youngest kitty for only about 3 weeks, but VERY depressed about it. Mom is going out tomorrow to maybe find me a new sibling.
I sure do miss Adobe. :( But he's not coming back, so I have to move on. Mom hopes maybe a new kitty will help fill the void.


I miss Adobe :(

It's been just over a week since Adobe passed away and I've been pretty miserable. He was my best friend and the greatest playmate ever. But he was really sick for a long time, so mom had to let him go.

After he left, I spent a few days looking around the house for him. I even got all of his toys and brought them to the livingroom so he would come out of hiding and play. But he was nowhere to be found. When mom went to take out the trash, I darted outside so I could search the backyard for Adobe, but he wasn't there either.
I've been up nights crying and howling carrying around Adobe's toy mouse, waiting and waiting for him to return.
Mom has given me lots of extra attention, treats, toys and even leaves Video Catnip on the TV. But I've still be sad, bored and lonely.

Mom thought about getting another kitten or even a dog to keep me company, but decided that would be too much right now.

But today, I got the greatest gift of all time...

Wow, your cat is Angelina Jolie!

Angelina Jolie
Traditional Beauty

Just like with Hollywood superhero Angelina Jolie, they broke the mold after they created Zorilla!

Defying the conventional meaning of the word pawpular, Zorilla can't scratch behind an ear without it being reported and talked about. Zorilla leaves pets of the opposite sex blubbering and babbling nonsensically after each encounter, their cuteness and charm receptors bubbling over with excitement. Always one to entice a broad audience, Zorilla not only loves to strut her stuff on the catwalk, but digs every chance she gets to make a difference, adopt a pet in need or dish out for her favorite charity.

Something is wrong with my eyes. My 3rd eyelids are showing, and yesterday I threw up my brekfast. I'm kinda lethargc and not really eating. Mom took me to the vet and they gave me a shot and some medicine. I still don't feel goo, if I'm not a little better by tomorrow I have to go back to the vet for bloodwork. :(

Am I...diary of the day?????

So much is going on.
First, Mom says an orange kitty-a BOY- is going to live with us, then Cat of the Week, and now, diary of the day!!!!

I can't decide which is best?
I'm still trying to get all the toys ready for the new orange kitty(he's at the pound being nutered and getting shots), and writing my Cat of the Week speech, and now...WOW! I'm so honored.

I love Catster. Thanks for all the support everyone. Now that mom is done with her college classes and stuff, I'll be able to log on more often.

Be sure to look for my new baby brother in about a week. Mom is taking suggestions for his name and Catster page layout. She's thinking maybe his name will be George, but she was also thinking Milo in honor of a sweet Catster who just went to the bridge, and his layout will be something Disney and cute.
Check back in a week or so to meet Little Orange Kitty

Guidelines for Cats

A friend sent this to me

Do not allow closed doors in any room. To get door opened, stand on hind legs and hammer with forepaws. Once door is opened, it is not necessary to use it. After you have ordered an "outside" door opened, stand halfway in and out and think about several things. This is particularly important during very cold weather, rain, snow, or mosquito season. Swinging doors are to be avoided at all costs.

Chairs and Rugs:
If you have to throw up, get to a chair quickly. If you cannot manage in time, get to an Oriental rug. If there is no Oriental rug, shag is good. When throwing up on the carpet, make sure you back up so that it is as long as the human's bare foot.

Always accompany guests to the bathroom. It is not necessary to do anything . . . just sit and stare.

If one of your humans is engaged in some close activity and the other is idle, stay with the busy one. This is called "helping", otherwise known as "hampering." Following are the rules for "hampering":

When supervising cooking, sit just behind the left heel of the cook. You cannot be seen and thereby stand a better chance of being stepped on and then picked up and comforted.

For book readers, get in close under the chin, between eyes and book, unless you can lie across the book itself.

For knitting projects or paperwork, lie on the work in the most appropriate manner so as to obscure as much of the work or at least the most important part. Pretend to doze, but every so often reach out and slap the pencil or knitting needles. The worker may try to distract you; ignore it. Remember, the aim is to hamper work. Embroidery and needlepoint projects make great hammocks in spite of what the humans may tell you.

For people paying bills (monthly activity) or working on income taxes or Christmas cards (annual activity), keep in mind the aim-to hamper! First, sit on the paper being worked on. When dislodged, watch sadly from the side of the table. When activity proceeds nicely, roll around on the papers, scattering them to the best of your ability. After being removed for the second time, push pens, pencils, and erasers off the table, one at a time. When a human is holding the newspaper in front of him/her, be sure to jump on the back of the paper. They love to jump.

As often as possible, dart quickly and as close as possible in front of the human, especially on stairs, when they have something in their arms, in the dark, and when they first get up in the morning. This will help their coordination skills.

Always sleep on the human at night so s/he cannot move around.

This is an important part of your life. Get enough sleep in the daytime so you are fresh for your nocturnal games. Below are listed several favorite cat games that you can play. It is important, though, to maintain one's dignity at all times. If you should have an accident during play, such as falling off a chair, immediately wash a part of your body as if to say "I meant to do that!" It fools those humans every time.

Cat Games:

Catch Mouse:
The humans would have you believe that those lumps under the covers are their feet and hands. They are lying. They are actually Bed Mice, rumored to be the most delicious of all the mice in the world, though no cat has ever been able to catch one. Rumor also has it that only the most ferocious attack can stun them long enough for you to dive under the covers to get them. Maybe YOU can be the first to taste the Bed Mouse!

King of the Hill:
This game must be played with at least one other cat. The more, the merrier! One or both of the sleeping humans is Hill 303 which must be defended at all costs from the other cat(s). Anything goes. This game allows for the development of unusual tactics as one must take the unstable playing theater into account.

Warning: Playing either of these games to excess will result in expulsion from the bed and possibly from the bedroom. Should the humans grow restless, immediately begin purring and cuddle up to them. This should buy you some time until they fall asleep again. If one happens to be on a human when this occurs, this cat wins the round of King of the Hill.

Any small item is a potential toy. If a human tries to confiscate it, this means that it is a good toy. Run with it under the bed. Look suitably outraged when the human grabs you and takes it away. Always watch where it is put so you can steal it later. Two reliable sources of toys are dresser tops and wastebaskets. There are several types of cat toys.

Bright shiny things like keys, brooches, or coins should be hidden so that the other cat(s) or humans can't play with them. They are generally good for playing hockey with on uncarpeted floors.

Dangly and/or string-like things such as shoelaces, cords, gold chains, and dental floss (can be dangerous) (& Q-tips) also make excellent toys. They are favorites of humans who like to drag them across the floor for us to pounce on.

When a string is dragged under a newspaper or throw rug, it magically becomes the Paper/Rug Mouse and should be killed at all costs. Take care, though. Humans are sneaky and will try to make you lose your dignity.

Paper Bags:
Within paper bags dwell the bag mice. They are small and camouflaged to be the same color as the bag, so they are hard to see. But you can easily hear the crinkling noises they make as they scurry around the bag. Anything, up to and including shredding the bag, can be done to kill them. Note: any other cat you may find in a bag hunting for bag mice is fair game for a sneak attack, which will usually result in a great Tagmatch.

In order to get the energy to sleep, play, and hamper, a cat must eat. Eating, however, is only half the fun. The other half is getting the food. Cats have two ways to obtain food: convincing a human you are starving to death and must be fed now; and hunting for it oneself. The following are guidelines for getting fed.

When the humans are eating, make sure you leave the tip of your tail in their dishes when they are not looking.

Never eat food from your own bowl if you can steal some from the table. Never drink from your own water bowl if a human's glass is full enough to drink from.

Should you catch something of your own outside, it is only polite to attempt to get to know it. Be insistent. Your food will usually not be so polite and try to leave.

Table scraps are delicacies with which the humans are unfortunately unwilling to readily part. It is beneath the dignity of a cat to beg outright for food as lower forms of life such as dogs will, but several techniques exist for ensuring that the humans don't forget you exist. These include, but are not limited to: jumping onto the lap of the "softest" human and purring loudly; lying down in the doorway between the dining room and the kitchen, the "direct stare", and twining around people's legs as they sit and eat while meowing plaintively.

As mentioned above, in order to have enough energy for playing, a cat must get plenty of sleep. It is generally not difficult to find a comfortable place to curl up. Any place a human likes to sit is good, especially if it contrasts with your fur color. If it's in a sunbeam or near a heating duct or radiator, so much the better. Of course, good places also exist outdoors, but have the disadvantages of being seasonal and dependent on current and previous weather conditions such as rain. Open windows are a good compromise.

Scratching Posts:
It is advised that cats use any scratching post the humans may provide. They are very protective of what they think is their property and will object strongly if they catch you sharpening your claws on it. Being sneaky and doing it when they aren't around won't help, as they are very observant. If you are an outdoor kitty, trees are good. Sharpening your claws on a human is not recommended.

Humans have three primary functions: to feed us, to play with and give attention to us, and to clean the litter box. It is important to maintain one's Dignity when around humans so that they will not forget who is the master of the house. Humans need to know basic rules. They can be taught if you start early and are consistent


Hugs all Around!

We've been gone for quite awhile. Mom get her Masters Degree and was really busy finishing that and her whole family came out for the celebration. She wouldn't let us unline for a long time so she could finish her thesis and study and stuff.
So much has changed, new Catsters, new layouts, new everything. We feel like strangers here.

Now we get to be back online for a short while. We miss all our friends here and the great fun.
But guess what else?
Mom bought us a HOUSE, our first house. So we're moving very soon, so we'll be offline again for awhile.

So pretty soon I'm going to have my own room, a backyard, and all sorts of places to play. Lucy will probably still hide under the bed or in the bathtub-except she'll have more than 1 bathtub to pick from.

Big hug to all my FURiends, I miss you
