August 5th 2005


Hiding in dark corners where you can't see me in "stealth mode" while practicing my hunting skills. Eating. Sleeping. Being pet on my neck and ears. Cuddling. Running to try and catch moms feet.

When they echo my meows. When they tickle my belly.

Favorite Toy:
People. The dogs. The big cats tail. The dogs toys. Lint. I'm sort of easy to please in the toy department.

Favorite Nap Spot:
Cuddled up to somebody. In mom's bed.

Favorite Food:
Cat food- Solid Gold Katz-n-Flocken. I looooove people food! Sometimes I am an even MORE persistant begger then the dogs.

Besides being absolutely adorable? Surviving is one of my strong points.


Arrival Story:
On August 6th 2005, at about 6 oclock I got a knock on my door it was the lady who stays upstairs with the people who rent. She was holding something black in the palm of her hand I honestly thought it was a hamster or a gerbil for a second. She told me a guy down the street from me had found this kitten in the road and he was planning on putting it in a bag and bashing it against the wall. She asked me what to do and told me she couldn't take it because of some lame reason or another. She then offered me some "cereal" she had upstairs to feed it. I took it in my hands and looked it over. The poor thing still has a little umbilical cord. I told her "This kitten is like a day old, if that. You can't just feed it cereal..." she repeated the crap about not knowing what to do and with it being a Saturday not knowing of any place to come and take it. I told her give it to me. I called up the local pet store and asked the lady if they sold good kitten bottle kits and formula, she told me yes and to bring it in and she would take a look at it because she is in vet school or what not. I took the kitten in and started to cry when she asked me the story and she thanked me and told me "You don't know how good it is to actually have someone who knows what they are doing." I told her I knew alot but I've never actually done this before so to expect a phone call. She said what I say, he looks really great, he is suckling, his poo was a good consistancy and color. He didn't meow except when I wipe his bum with a wet paper towel to stimulate him. We feed KMR kitten formula and kept him in a box on top of the cable box lined with cotton t-shirts to keep him warm (the tv is on all the time so it is so warm) The first two things that ran through my mind when I got him were, oh my god how long has it been laying in the road in this heat. And, owwww! where is the rest of his family. Had they been found, they would be here as well. He was not dehydrated because I pinched his skin and it bounced right back, it doesn't have the clay like appearance that skin affiliated with dehydration does. Nice pink gums too. I determined I had a little boy based on his anatomy and the fact that I got a peek at it before it got all covered with fur and confusing to look at. I still get sad to think about the rest of his family. I'm just so glad I have him and I had the chance to save him from that redneck dope head whos bright idea it was to smash it instead of trying something, ANYTHING.

I really enjoy life! Everyday is something fun and new and I am always getting into things.

I hate this food they are trying to make me eat.
I don't get it...
Am I supposed to chew it? Am I supposed to suck on it?
Just do me a favor and hand me my bottle please.


Pictures of me to be updated soon!

I've got my eyes open, I walk around now and I'm a chunky little piglet.
Mom will be putting new pictures of me up shortly.
I'm growing so big and strong :)
I am so fluffy it's hard to tell that I even have ears....

I can't wait to do the things the big cat does!
