Likes: To drive his mom nuts, steal things and talk back!
Pet-Peeves: When mommy says no! Not going out in the sunroom the second he wants to.
Favorite Toy: striped rubber balls and laser light
Favorite Nap Spot: any lap or box will do, right on top of the furnace, on top of the cat tree in the sunroom
Favorite Food: turkey, tuna juice and Aquariums treats. During the holiday season its candy canes!
Skills: He loves to talk back, he always has something to say. He can jump up to the corner cupboard which is taller than his mom. I also like to play fetch until I am exhausted.
Arrival Story: I wanted a Bengal and had been searching for one for a while. Charlie was ready to come home right after we got married so he made our new home even more special! Charlie flew to us from Montana and although it was a long day, he was the friendliest cat once he came out of the carrier and still is.
Bio: Charlie can get himself into bad situations without thinking. He has slid down the stair banister backwards and luckily ended up on his feet. He loves to do high jumps and is very acrobatic! He flew to us from Montana. The breeder's name was rockymeoutain bengals. They were terrific!
Charlie here, I have a bad cut on my paw and a small one on my lip. Last night was the last straw for that black and white stray who kept coming in my yard. Mom knows that lately we have been having words back and forth and those aren't quiet words.
Dad heard the glass break around 12:30 am and all heck broke loose! Of course he didn't check to see if any critters got in the house. Don't worry dad, I will take care of them or I'll send my side kick Petey in to deal with them.
Mom was downstairs eating her Cheerios and I came up to her limping. She got so upset and checked my paw. I got a little blood on her and gave her my I'm sorry face. She had dad look at it because he is a nurse. So, they went to work and I was just laying low trying to keep my paw safe.
2 hours later mom comes home, scoops me up and takes me to the V.E.T.! Ugh, I hate that place. I howled the whole way there and mom said that even though I am loud, these howls sounded like the opera! The vet glued my lip and my paw. What is this glue stuff? I got a shot of antibiotic stuff. She also weighed me and I gained a pound since the last visit a year ago. I have been building my muscles to take on that stray!
Mom took me home and gave me 2 catmint leaves a kiss and she went back to work. Petey checked me out to make sure the V.E.T. was nice to me. What he doesn't know is that the both of us go next week to get our annual checkup. He won't be happy!
So for now I am going to take it easy and dream of another way to put that stray in his place.
Okay, okay, I admit I have been curious lately with the little hoomin in our house. I even let her pet me the other day. But she still freaks me out.
So, a big box came and mom opened it. Some new lightweight stroller. I wish it were for me. So as mom was opening up the stroller, I was more interested in the box. It was leaning on the chair. I knocked it over and prepared to sneak into it. Little did I know LME (Little Miss Elle) was right behind me. My tail was tickling her face and before you know it, she grabbed my tail. Well, that sent me flying! I jumped about 5 feet into the air and took off like a rocket.
Mom and dad laughed. I DO NOT think it was so funny. Thank goodness they didn't catch it on video. I have a rep to protect!
