Skills: Can say "Mama", gives kisses when prompted "Where's my kiss?", did a stint of 2 nights outside (about 32 hours), following a stint of 24 hours outside about 2.5 years ago, both times after Lucy openend the sliding screen door and let everyone out
Arrival Story: Jack and his brother, Colby, to0k up residence in my yard around October 2004. I fed them for a couple of months before I was able to catch them and bring them into the house. They are shy cats with strangers, but are delightful with me – very loving and affectionate. Jack recently spent 24 hours outside after Lucy let all the cats out for the second time. He was hungry, scared and ready to get back in the house! The rest of the cats sniffed him relentlessly for about an hour, apparently trying to figure out why he smelled like a possum (one lives under the building where Jack was hiding). Colby, his brother, was way too smart to even venture outside – he is a confirmed house cat now and he likes it that way.
Bio: I am currently fostering Jack and Colby for Furkids, an Atlanta no kill cat rescue. If you are interested in adopting them, you may contact me or go to www.furkids.org to complete an application on line. They would love to find a patient home who will work with them for the couple of months that it will take for them to get adusted to a new home.
Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Cats who are tagged need to write about themselves (the seven random facts) as well as the rules in their diary. You need to select seven cats to tag and list their names. Don't forget to leave them a comment (via p-mail) telling them that they've been tagged and that they need to read your diary for more information. My family is going to play by altered rules and we are not going to tag other kitties. Mom was on vacation for a week and came home to a mail box full of 'tags'
MY SEVEN FACTS
1. I only meow when I'm afraid. Otherwise, I chatter
2. I like 'gentle spankings' on my rear and on my flank.
3. I am a Kitty Crack (kibble) Head. I can hear the bag rattle no matter where I am in the house and will come running.
4. My favorite toy is the Star Chaser. I love to lie on top of it.
5. I spend a lot of time under my mom's bed.
6. I have problems with chronic feline acne.
7. I LOVE Zuke's salmon treats.

Bubbi e was a very special cat and Weeble is a very special NEEDS cat! We think Bubbie would feel good about helping her. Here is her story:
Weeble got her name because of her severe neurological condition. When she's trying to sit still, she often seems to bob or dance in place. When she tries to walk, her feet go all over the place, and as a result, she often sticks close to the walls in case she falls. But Weeble is an angel. It absolutely warms her heart when someone approaches and pets her. She is soft as a baby. Give her just a little bit of tenderness, and you'll see the love fill her eyes. It's hard for her, but she's always trying to reach out. She's extremely gentle.
She was born in 1993 without good motor coordination. She is also incontinent. She used to have a family, but the family gave her up because they had a new child and having Weeble was "like having a second child". Because of her twitching, they described her as "a messy eater". She often knocked things over by accident in her attempts to walk. And though she tried very hard with the continence issue, often making it through the kitty door in time, just as often, she didn't make it. So they gave her up. Weeble now lives here at Best Friends, and we're happy to have her! We still have hope that she might some day find a family.
My little Miss Moggamuffin, so pretty and sweet
You should know my aim is to sweep you off your feet
And it is my most sincerest of hopes
That no other tom cat will kiss your pink nose
Or speak words of love with sweet foreign words
Mine longs to be the only voice that is heard
Your beautiful face and whiskers, my kitten
Have left me so terribly, hopelessly smitten
So I will say, with a heart you've made soar
I will definitely, positively, assuredly be yours!
And what do we say to that brother of yours
To defend your honor and even the score?
It sound like serious sour grapes to me
Or possibly a case of sibling rivalry
Perhaps if he found a girl of his own
He’d keep himself busy and leave you alone
For toms needing love, I would tell him to rush
To a forum on this site that is called Catster Crush
There are plenty of girls there in need of romance
This sounds to me like Luci’s best chance!
So for now, bel fiore, I bid you adieu
I sleep tonight with sweet dreams of you.
My sweet, sweet Emmagan! Don't you worry about that bad Lucivar, I know what you are about and I see you differently than a brother sees you! You are my sweet, beautiful flower and nothing can change that!
