I was in a pet store with all my brothers and sisters (in 1985 this was) and my mom picked me out because I was just sitting in the cage and everyone was crawling all over me. She liked me best because I was calico angora. I was so excited to find out that I was going to have a human brother and sister to play with! They liked to argue over which of my paws was best. The Boy liked the gray leg with orange paw, and The Girl liked the orange leg with the white stripe across it. I had lots of fun things I liked to do with them: sitting in front of the glass doors and watching tree frogs that were stuck on them, we used to lay on the floor in the living room when they were little and I would groom the Boy's head, I played house with the girl kid, and I let her carry me around even though I didn't like it. She also put me in her doll's high chair and fed me imaginary food. They used to make a fort every Saturday morning, and they would put the tv on the floor of the fort and we would all watch cartoons together. They really treated me more like a human kid than a kitty. When they were older we got hampsters to play with, and one time they had it in this clear plastic ball it would run around the house in, and I pushed it down the stairs!!! One time I got out of the apartment somehow when they weren't home, and even though I had never been outside before, I just sat on the front steps and waited for them to get home!!! The family took me on vacations with them because I was so good. I would ride in the van for hours and didn't mind at all. One of the places we stayed at was a cottage with beams across the ceiling. I walked out onto the beams and slept there in the air!! I had a gingerbread boy stuffed animal that was almost as big as me that I dragged around the house. One time the screen of the window I was sitting in popped out and I fell out of the apartment, and my family ran out to get me and found me sitting under a bush. All I did when they brought me inside was shake my back legs and walk over to the food dish! Oh, and thats another thing. At one time I weighed 20 lbs!!! My belly would swing from side to side when I walked. That was before the humans learned about scheduled feedings! After those started, I went down to half that size.
Unfortunately, I passed away when I was 19 years old (in 2004). I never realized that I was a cat, my whole life I thought I was a human. But I lived a good life and was very loved by my family, especially my Mom.

Rizza, an orangey girl with the cutest nose ever tagged me!! Here are the seven facts about myself:
1. I loved to eat crepes, yogurt and green olives.
2. I didn't care at all when the hoomins brought new cats into the house, I would just sniff them hello and be on my way.
3. I would thoroughly inspect the purses of any lady that visited our house, because I loved new scents.
4. When I was a young kitten one of the kids accidently let me out of the house when the hoomins were going out. I sat on the front step and waited hours for them to get home even though I had never been outside before.
5. I lived to be 19, just short of my 20th birthday.
6. I had trouble grooming, so Mom got me the fancy Lion Hairdo at the groomers.
7. My mom had a friend who had a phobia of cats, and I was the only cat she ever was in a room with because I was such a sweetie!

My sister added two photos of my hooman brother's dog Hennah. I guess she would be my neice! She likes to do sheep herding, but I never got to meet her. She sure does have a big smile! :D The only dog I ever met was Sara, she lived with us for a couple years when the kids were smaller. During that time I moved to the upstairs of the house because she thought I looked like lunch. They should have named her Jaws! But I guess I can't complain too much about living upstairs, because the kids had hampsters back then and I used to spy on them. They probably felt the same way about me as I did about Sara! One time Sox the Hampster was getting some excersize in his plastic ball and I nudged it to the top of the stairs. Then he ran a little and then bounced all the way down. He was dizzy when they brought him back up and I just pretended I didn't know how it happened. Another time my sister's hampster Snickers escaped from his cage when she wasn't at home, and I just sat and watched him until she came back. When sister came in Snickers was standing on his hind legs looking at me and I was just sitting there seeing what he would do next. Thats part of why my sister loved me so much, I was very kind hearted. I could have eaten that hampster but instead I just hampster-sat until the hoomans came home:) I hope my sister will get a picture of Sara scanned soon.
