Orange & White Tabby

My brother Paul - she adores him; outside, when she can get there; sleeping with Paul; looking out windows; the DVD player disc drawer opening & closing.

Being moved from anywhere. She's the ultimate couch potato.

Favorite Toy:
Laser light, feather toys, new catnip, the DVD player disc drawer.

Favorite Nap Spot:
On the couch, on top of Paul.

Favorite Food:
Dry Friskies Feline Favorites. Nibbles at can food, refuses all human foods.

Purring. She's a great big, soft, totally mushy love bug. She also loves the DVD player, when the drawer opens or closes. She will come running when she hears the sound & sit in front of the TV, watching to see what's coming on next.


Arrival Story:
I had just lost the biggest lover cat I've ever had. Chevy had died suddenly of a stroke after abdominal surgery to remove a blockage. I was so very heartbroken that I needed to fill the hole left by his passing. I went online & found a local rescue group that was having an adoption day coming up. I went to it & found Clarisse (then named Clarissa), who was the identical twin - reincarnated even - of Nichole who had died 6 years before. It was love at first site.

I changed Clarissa to Clarisse (FBI agent from Silence of the Lambs) because I also like Reeses Peanut Butter cups & she was orange like the package. Ree-cee became her automatic nickname. Ree-cee Poo came about because she was once "dressed" in a Winnie-the-Poo Bee costume for a Halloween party online. She also doesn't clean herself that well, which is where "Da Pooiest" comes from. She is totally, absolutely in love with my brother Paul who lives with us. Nichole was also that way with Paul, so he swears that Clarisse is Nichole reincarnated. Who knows, maybe it's true. She has also learned to make her needs clearly known. If she wants the blinds raised, she'll stick a paw thru them & pull the slats apart. That prompts her hoomins to come running & raise them so they don't get bent. If she wants a drink of water, she jumps on the bathroom sink & stares at you while you're on the throne, until you turn the water faucet on for her.

Lives Remaining:
6 of 9

Forums Motto:
You can never have too much love.

I've Been Tagged - AGAIN!

This time, I've been tagged by my Hawaiian friend Abbey!

Here are the rules:

Each cat starts with seven random facts about themselves. Cats who are tagged need to write the seven things in their diary and the rules. You need to choose seven cats to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to pmail them that they have been tagged and to read your diary, or send them a fun rosette announcing that they've been tagged.

7 Facts About Clarisse:

1. I live with 2 hoomins and 4 other kitties in Rochesfur, Mew York.

2. I luff my Paw-Paw, meowmie's hoomin brofur Paul. I only mew to him and I like to wrap him around my paws.

3. I am a furry luffin kitty. When I look at Paw-Paw, I am so sweet he can't help but pick me up.

4. I don't like to be moved. It's the only time I will squeek at meowmie, just so she knows I'm not happy with her.

5. I don't like loud noises or loud voices. I especially don't like meowmie to sing.

6. I will always wait until all the other kitties have their supper before I will come to eat mine. Meowmie knows I'm furry hungry when I come to the kitchen before I'm called.

7. I am patient with most everything. The only time I'm impatient is when I want to go to the outside and Paw-Paw refuses to take me.

This time, I am tagging the following 7 kitties:

1. Dusty - 668028
2. Molly - 495281
3. Fritz - 500028
4. Jewel - 505726
5. Smokey - 275430
6. Squirrel - 539616
7. Buddy - 492978

Here are the rules:

Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Cats who are tagged need to write in their own diaries about the seven things and the rules. You need to choose seven cats to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment that they have been tagged and to read your diary!

OK - Now about me!

1) I like to watch the DVD player door open and close and wait to see what movie is coming on.

2) I LOVE going outside on my harness and leash – but even better sneaking out and making my hoomins chase me!

3) I can purr for hours, even in my sleep.

4) I adore my Paul and I hate sharing him.

5) When I'm mad at anybody, I sit with my back to them and refuse to look at them. If my ears are down and my tail swishing, I’m REALLY mad at them.

6) I trained my hoomins to open the front blinds and turn on the bathroom faucet for my water drink whenever I desire.

7) I love watching the world out meowmie’s bedroom window, because she has the condo next to it and the blinds are up and down, so all I have to do is stick my paw in them and pull them to one side all by myself.
