Arrival Story:
My Mamma and Grandmaw went to the pound with a friend who was looking for a cat and my future Mamma fell in love with me right away. When she took me out of the cage and held me, I started purrrring and marching on her arm. She begged Grandmaw to let her get me, and after only one night she said YESSSSS. The MSPCA was closed the next few days so they left messages on the machine and wrote a note and stuck it to the door "PLEASE don't give Sassy away--We want her!". A few days later they came to pick me up, but when they got there, the MSPCA people said that I was just a year old and needed to go get spayed before they could bring me home! They had to wait *another* couple days to bring me home, and when they did, I had to wear a funnel around my neck because I was pulling at my stitches. I was so happy when I finally got home, especially to find out I had a new big sister, Missy!!! The humans were shocked at how much I talked and after a few days of it they started wondering if thats maybe why the original humans dropped me off at the pound!

Best. Day. Efur. First my hoomin cooks CHICKEN at 6am fur supper tonight, so the house is filled with smells of chicken-ey goodness. Then I log on to read the daily mews, and *I* am it!! hee hee!

I want to steal food off plates and run away laughing with my mouth full of stolen goods!

Well, I hope you all have as good a day as I plan to have! Thanks fur the fun rosettes and pawmails and crossed paws fur my test results, which I am supposed to get today (I have a feeling that will be good news too!).

Dear Diary,

Today Mommy tricked me with treats and put me in the Lock Box and took me to the vet. It was time fur my three month check up. I had to get a yucky blood test, but I was very good. When Dr. M was trying to listen to my heart I kept Brrrrrr-ing at him. I have a yeast infection in my ears again so they gave me cold drops I have to do efurryday. It was the first time I didn't poop my pants on the way there in a long time!!! Wooooyeahhhhhh! Now we are just waiting fur my results. Keep your paws crossed fur me!!!

xoxoxo, Frass

p.s. I stole a Pringle off Grandmaw's plate the other day!!!


My Fifteenth

Yay! I survived another year! I think this was the best so far. My Birthday was on Friday and I got lots of lovin' from my family and catster furrends.

First thing in the morning on Friday, I got a special Lamb and Pea breakfast from Grandmaw. Then I got a Birthday song, and a card from Polka Dot. This is the poem she wrote me:

Happy Birthday my Frassola,
all the poems I wrote you were crapola,
so a COUPON I present,
for a ball of FREE dryer lint!!

She knows how much I love dryer lint!! She had to do the coupon because our dryer is broken right now and we won't have new lint until Grandmaw buys a new one.

Later on I logged on here and found that not only did my wonderful boycat, Sigmond, and his family gave me Catster Plus, but Polka Dot's guy Diego and his clan gave me a bunch of Zealies! Woo woo!! I was overwhelmed with how generous everyone was. I got so many pawmails and Birthday wishes and rosettes from my furtastic pals and cats I don't even know yet, I couldn't keep up!! I had the Warm Fuzzies all day long.

Next I had a Nip Party in the living room with Dottie. I got a jiggley Sanrio Panda Head thing, a pink mouse, another pink roller mouse, and an orange chewy toy.

But the best thing of the whole day was all the catster fun!! heeheehee!! I want to meow Thanks! to everycat here. It was a lovely day and I couldn't have asked for anything more, except for maybe a huge kitty condo, but still, good day!!!

Not only was it my 15th Birthday, but it was also the 14th annifursarry of the very furst time I met my Mama. Every year she tells me my story of how she fell in love with me at furst sight and how she was frantically writing notes "Please don't give Sassy away--WE WANT HER!!!" and sticking them on the door of the shelter, because by the time she convinced Grandmaw to let her get me they were closed for the weekend. Mommy says that I have been the bestest friend a girl could ask for. I do my best. hee hee!!

xoxoxoxo, Sassafras
