To be outside hunting, or smelling Daddy's work shoes...MOL!
Not being able to go outside when he wants to!
The laser light, big feather on a stick, paper bag balls, & yarn.
Favorite Nap Spot:
Mom & Dad's bed or the back of the couch in the sun.
Hunting prey, then secondly Purina Chow. He's also fond of tuna, & tuna juice.
He is an excellent hunter. He can jump very high. He enjoys "killing" any toy that moves.
indoors and outdoors
Some neighbors came to us one day, and they had a black kitten with them. It seems that the kittens family had moved, and left their animals behind to fend for themselves. Our neighbors asked us if we could take the little tyke in, as they knew that we loved animals. We figured that our tom Ebonezer had fathered the litter anyway, so we took in the little waif. We named him E.J. (short for Ebonezer Jr.) He was about 4 or 5 weeks old at the time. We instantly fell in love with him. He learned to play "fetch" early on. If you would throw a wadded up paper bag rolled into a ball, he would attack it, and eventually bring it back to you for you to throw for him again. When he was big enough, we let him go outside with George, our older grey tabby. After Muffy died in September 2004, George became the matriarch of our fur family. E.J. followed George around everywhere. George even taught the kitten to hunt. Boy, does EJ love to hunt! EJ is friends with every cat in our family. We sure do love him! He has the shiniest, silkiest coat. Mom loves to stroke him from head to toe any chance that she gets.
Since George crossed ofur the Rainbow Bridge in January 2007 (he and I were attacked by two Pit Bulls, and George died of his injuries) I have become the matriarch of our cat furmily. I have earned the respect of my younger siblings. Since I am the only feline allowed to go outside, my sibs long to hear about my hunting skills and accomplishments, so I tell them many stories about my escapades outdoors.
The love of my life is Ashley from the East Coast. She is a beautiful grey tabby whom I love dearly. I call her my little "Nature Girl." I wish that we could spend more time togefur! We spend as much time as we can togefur on Catster, so Catster is Number One in my book!

Meowmy and Daddy buried me yesterday. My final resting spot is in the garden. Whenefur Daddy worked in the garden, I used to rub all ofur his legs, supervise, and chase bugs that he unearthed. He called me his little "Garden Cat." Meowmy and Daddy also called me "Little Buddy." I was their buddy in efurry way, and I loved them so much. I like my final resting spot in the garden. It is right by the front door, so now I can see my pawrents efurry day as they come and go, and watch ofur them. I really like being at the Bridge. When I got here, I was greeted by my furmily and furiends. I am healthy and happy now, and no longer being stuck by a needle efurry morning. I was so good about getting my Insulin, I didn't fuss, but I really don't miss it now. Life at the Rainbow Bridge is good. I can't wait to see what is in store for me now...

I have been at the Vet Hospital for five days now. I haven't eaten or drank in about a week. My pawrents got me there when the furst appointment opened up after I took ill. My Red Blood Cells were low, my White Bloods Cells high, I was extremely Anemic and Dehydrated. The Vet tried to get me to eat, gave me IV Fluids, and gave me a two week Antibiotic for infection. Meowmy called Dr. Henderson several times each day, but the news was always about the same. Dr. Henderson did some tests, and she felt that I probably had Bone Marrow Cancer. Meowmy could pursue it with a test, but I probably wouldn't survive the test. My pawrents helped me cross the Bridge about two hours ago. Meowmy held me lovingly in her lap while I got the injection. I died at 3:33 p.m. PST. Meowmy is devastated. I am just glad that I don't have to get my daily Insulin injections any more. I am an angel now. I can't wait to see what is next...

Hello fur furiends! I am on top of the world. You know how my Diabetes has been out of control, and my Blood Sugar readings have been super high? Well, I went to the Vet two weeks ago, and I had the best Blood Sugar reading efur! It was the lowest it has efur been, a mere 84! My Vet Tommy said that she wanted to get it under 200, and I did that AND THEN SOME! Yippee! My pawrents are furry pleased that I am doing so well. They are to keep me on the same dosage of Insulin, and bring me back in TWO months for anofur blood test. Since I absolutely HATE to go to the Vet (the car ride makes me ill), this is fine with me!
I have been feeling quite well really. I have even increased my outdoor hunting time each day. I spend most of the day outdoors now. The only thing keeping me from staying outdoors ALL day is the weather. We have been having one Heat Wave after anofur this month. When it gets too hot, Meowmy pleads with me to come inside, and begrudgingly I obey her, and go inside for a while to cool down. Having solid black fur makes the heat intense, but I am not going to let a little heat keep me from hunting and enjoying the outdoors! Sometimes I completely ignore Meowmy's attempts to move me inside to cooler temperatures, and stay outside in the searing heat. After all, a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do! MOL!
Thank you all for purraying about my out of control Diabetes. Thanks to you and the good Lord above, I am all better now. Enjoy the rest of your Summer!!!
Love and Purrs,
