Arrival Story:
Coffee was a shelter cat at the animal shelter where I volunteer. Because she has a history of bladder stones, she was going to be a difficult placement. When my resident cat (breed unknown) started to stalk me, I knew it was time to find a companion. Eli, the resident cat, had special diet needs so I decided I could handle two cats with special diets.

Coffee is a big girl. Her tabby circles ring completely around her body. She is the purfect color of coffee with light cream. She believes she is the only cat in the WHOLE world who should live in the house. Coffee is front declawed (not was her first humans who did it). She started boxing Eli on the head anytime he was within reach. At first Eli would MEOW in protest, but soon realized that when Coffee swatted him it didn't hurt. He would just stand there and take it. Coffee quickly established herself as top cat. Coffee makes sure that everyone gets a chance to refresh their memory of her scent...every day! She is quite fond of having her tail scratched and will raise her rump to make sure you scratch it good and get a good view/smell of her assets! She cha-cha's from pure enjoyment of the tail scratch. Coffee has learned to be a great foster mom. She helped foster a young orange tabby until we found a home for him. Lately her Big Sister skills have been put to use with our new addition to the home, Pandora.

Lives Remaining:

Tagged - 5 Annoying Habits of the Human

I have been tagged by several friends…like Tweak…or the delicious Milagrito…who are curious to know the 5 things that annoy me about my human. Five??!! Are you sure you do not want more! OK, then, there is the top 5, in no particular order, but my tail is twitching just thinking about the list.

1. My furson, Mom, the two-legger who sleeps here and occasionally feeds me, went out one day and came back with ANOTHER CAT! She said “Coffee, you have a new sister and you are going to just love her. She is soooooo cute.” Guess what? I do not love her and I do not see what is so cute about a fluffy-tailed cat with blue eyes who eats my food and sleeps on my pillows. I do not care that she is a Ragdoll and comes with papers. Papers? Isn’t that what goggies use when they cannot be trained to go outside? MOL.

2. My Mom fusses at me because I make the fluffy-tailed cat leave MY PILLOW. I don’t care that I am not ready to sleep on that pillow right away. I don’t think Pandora should be allowed to touch any of MY STUFF.

3. OK, this one is serious and makes my tail really switch back and forth…Mom rations the treats. She gives me ONLY 6 pieces of treats regardless of how good I have been or how well I have ruled my kingdom! I am the Queen and the Queen wants more treats!.

4. Next is that Mom doesn’t understand the game we play. Let me set the scene: Mom is on the sofa and I decided to join her. I prefer to stretch out just within the reach of her out-stretched arm. I get all comfy, roll over, exposing my beautiful tummy furs, and I start to purr. Mom reaches over and rubs my belly, once, then twice, and then stops…or sometimes she doesn’t stop. It really doesn’t matter because it is all a game called “bite the hand that rubs the belly.” I guess this really isn’t something that belongs on the list, because the game is more frustrating to Mom than me. I win every time we play and all she gets is a few marks on her hand. I will leave it on the list since she is transcribing this for me – it’s the least I can do.

5. My last pet peeve for today has to do with the trip to the vet. I show my displeasure at this every time by leaving a poo or two in the carrier. She has yet to take the hint that I do not like to ride in cars, ride in a pet stroller to the vet, go to the vet, get in the carrier, have strangers pick me up and poke me in personal places, and I could go on, but you get the picture!

Now for the final step, I've tagged Mugsy, Cocoa, Starbuck Jones, Klemy Q-Tip and Biscotto. Now, tag five other friends and invite them to play – BUT not before you leave me some treats in my Catster inbox!!

I've been tagged by my friend, Mugsy! Thanks for tagging me Mugsy. Now all I have to do is answer 5 questions and tag someone else.

1. Do you ever wake your parent up in the night? No, I like to sleep in with Mommy. I have a pillow on Mommy's bed and that is where I stay most of the night. It's the brat cat that lives with me and Mom that wakes everyone up at dark-thirty every morning! Brat!

2. Do you ever tear up things? No, I do not see the point in spending my energy on something that does not involve eating or sleeping.

3. What is your favorite treat? Whatever you have!!!! I will be at your feet fast-as-lightning when I hear the treat bag rattle.

4. Can you fetch something when asked to do so? Yes! I taught my Mom how to toss treats around the room and I run (well, more like trot) to fetch them -- 'cept I don't return them to Mom. I eats them!

5. Have you ever lived any place other than where you live now? Oh yeah. I was a frequent flier at the animal shelter where Mom volunteered. It took my Mom a l-o-n-g time to figure out that I was supposed to go home with her.

Now I think I will tag...hmmmm....who will it be...I have to give this some thought! I know!! If you are reading this, you have to scroll to the top of my page, leave me some treats, and TAG -- you are tagged! You have to write about yourself in your diary! Sugar Bear (Mrs. Precious), you are tagged!
