Running around the apartment, curling up with Mommy and attacking squeaky toys!

Not being petted first thing when Mommy comes home, having to be in the pet taxi when riding in the car, and sharing the place with Sugar Baby. Mommy still hopes we get along at some point, but right now, we just stay in separate rooms.

Favorite Toy:
The leopard print balls with the noisy things inside

Favorite Nap Spot:
On Mommy's bed or on the quilt in the living room

Favorite Food:
Hill's Science Diet for Seniors

Licking people in order to say hello!


Arrival Story:
Mommy was looking to add to her family and it was love at first sight. She liked the fact that I was so friendly and affectionate, so I sold her on the idea thatshe needed to take me home. I was 6 months old at the time and had been found 2 months earlier with a puppy during a snowstorm.

According to Mommy, I looked like a little huntress, so she named me Leela after a character on Doctor Who. The Doctor had plucked her from a planet of warriors and hunters to become the Doctor's companion.

Wow....I can't believe a month has gone by already!

Mommy has been busy with so many things that she hasn't had the time to be my typist for a diary entry lately. Anyhow, it's been a busy month for both of us!

I have a new boyfriend! His name is Apollo, he's 11 and VERY handsome. He's such a sweetie too...writing romantic emeows and posts on the forums. It's enough to make a kitty swoon and even blush a little!

Mommy and I are also keeping track of the picks in the football pool for some of us Catster kitties and our owners. If any of you are interested in joining, the details are on the "What I Love About Catster" Forum under the "Football 101" thread. It's a lot of fun and Mommy loves to play with some program called Excel when keeping track of everycat's picks!

I'd talk about Mommy's adventures this month too, but it's all boring human stuff. No cat cares about THAT stuff!

Anyhow, I'm going back to keeping the home safe from pesky dustbunnies and errant bits of lint! Will write soon. :)



I have a new friend!

I've been talking to a really cool cat named Ethan. He's from Ohio, and is SO adorable! I'm not sure if I really am for all this crush stuff or not, though...my mommy thinks it's a little on the silly side.

Ruben also gave me a rosette today! He's an adorable tuxedo cat, but apparently he's "taken"...oh well! One still can't have too many friends though. :)

I had a good day today. I killed a little horsefly that had sneaked into the house, did some sleeping and was SO happy to see Mommy when she got home from work!

Well, I'm off to make sure that the house is horsefly-free! I'll have Mommy take some more dictation later. :)


I'm so ready for some football!

Mommy and I just joined a football pool with the gang from the Forums! This is my first time, but I know that Mommy's done this before and has had a lot of fun. I can't wait to get to know some of the other kitties in the pool and have some fun! Maybe some of us can organize a virtual Super Bowl party at the end of the season!

This was a good weekend. Although Mommy went out for most of yesterday, today was great. We watched a DVD and we cuddled a lot. I always like Sundays with my mommy!

Not much else is going on. My ear is clearing up nicely, so I hope that everything will be OK when I go to the vet on Saturday! Keep your paws crossed! :)
