Orange Tabby

Food, love, lots of attention, new catnip toys.

Late dinners. Ignoring him. Always preferring the computer to his attentions.

Favorite Toy:
Feather toys, new catnip, me.

Favorite Nap Spot:
In my arms, on my bed, in the way. Oh, he occasionally uses the kitty condo.

Favorite Food:
Anything - especially if I'm eating it.

He is able to schmoogle with the best of them. This guy is the most loving cat I've ever known.


Arrival Story:
Dusk had it tough on his road to me. He was living with my best friend, but when she got the flesh eating virus, she had to give up all her cats. Dusk was her favorite & when I found out, I decided to take him & try to find a home for him. I did find him a home with a friend of my nephew, but unfortunately she was either unable or unwilling to take care of him properly. When she was evicted from her apartment, she asked me to take him back "until she got back on her feet". Although she promised food & money to help, she never came thru with the promise. He had lost weight, was frightened & hid when he first came back. Now he's back to his proper size, is fearless, & very lovable. Needless to say, she's not ever getting him back.

Dusk is the ultimate schmoogler. He has a unique purr - part purr, part smooch, part gurgle. A smurgle. He is very demanding & feels that dinner should be served the moment I walk in the door. Since Baby Kitty went to the Rainbow Bridge, Dusk now has the honored place where she once ate. No more being locked in another room to eat. And he's loving it! The girls have learned that he's really not "all that" & eat beside him now just fine. Dusk is my constant nightly companion. He would no more think to let me sleep alone than he'd think not to eat. Bedtime is for snuggling under the covers & purring me to sleep. Anything less just doesn't work for him.

What celebrity would your pet be? I'm Tiger Woods! Find out at Catster.com

Tiger Woods - Athletic & Poised

Calm and cool on the outside, feisty and determined on the inside, Dusk is everyman athlete Tiger Woods!

Dusk proved at an early age that he had the skills to pay the bills, running circles around the competition when he was just a wee whippersnapper. Thanks to his tremendous successes, Dusk has set aside an entire wing of his luxurious shelter just to house his collection of trophies and ribbons. A high-class pet with exquisite taste, Dusk prefers to be seen with long-legged female mates, preferably those bred from Scandinavian lines. Unwilling to rest on his haunches, Dusk has no time to hang out at the 19th hole and pet himself on the back - he's got a lot more green grass to frolic across before throwing in the towel.

Now she's showing me around & infurducing me to ofur kittehs here. I has met many purries frum all ofur da wurld. So many furries is here - I has many new furriends.

Don't cry, Meowmie. I'm most furry happy now, & I will wait fur mew.

I can't stop her, no matter how much I purr. Wif each purr, her tears fall more & more. Poor Meowmie, I am so weak, I can't climb into her arms like I used to. Meowmie picks me up, but my bones stick out & poke her. It hurts me a little, but I still like to lay in Meowmie's arms.

She told me tewday that everything will feel betfur tewmorrow. I will go see my docfur jus 1 more time, go tew sleep & wake up wif Baby Kitteh at da Bridge. I will be eggcited tew see BK again, but I'm gonna miss my Meowmie.

More frum da Bridge tewmorrow.

Meowmie has been so neglectful in letting us kittehs do owr own thing. Should she be reported fur animul aboose?

Well now, where to start? It's been ofur a year and Lazarus is still around. He's becum so attached to Paw-Paw dat he gets worried and meowy when Paw-Paw is gone - even if only to anofur room.

Isis still hates us boys. She hisses and growls ifn she sees us. I'll just bop her a bit to put her in her place, but Laz takes off aftur her and a hissy fit turns intew a screaming fit wif meowmie yellin "stop it!"

Clarisse has stopped chewing her back & her fur is startin to grow back. Paw-Paw says she's wearing panties now instead of a thong.

Desiree is furry healthy according to da vet. Not a thing wrong wif her. She's Laz's buddy now. They purlay togefur and chase each ofur around da apurrtment. Meowmie say Desiree thinks she's still a little kitteh.

And me? Well, I'm getting skinnier and da vet can't tell meowmie why. I eat and eat and steal fud when I can. I'm demanding at meal times fur da hoomins to gif me sum. I'm so hungry alla time dat no amount is enuf. I still haf da water poopies sumtimes, but not as bad as befur. Meowmie is at a loss as to what is wrong wif me. I heard her talking to Paw-Paw aftur he was complaining abowt me and she mentioned "put to sleep". I don't need sleep - I need more fud!

Well, dat's it fur now. Hope efurry cat has a gud Catmus or whatefur mewr hoomins celebrate. Purrs!
