Likes: Cardboard boxes! His cat tree, his fur being vaccummed (yes, he likes being vaccummed)! My desk, of course. His tummy rubbed, cleaning his fur, being with his human mom
Pet-Peeves: Other cats getting too close to him..if they do he whacks them upside their heads. Even his buddy Matt from time to time.
Favorite Toy: Faceted crystal ball (the more rainbows it throws off, the better), laser light toy..he goes nuts if he sees light or shadows that move fast
Favorite Nap Spot: Right in the middle of mom's desk as she works, on top of the computer keyboard. Also,the top shelf of the cat tree, and next to mom's chair as she works (on his padded stool, aka "the throne").
Favorite Food: Canned cat food, or dry, just please, NO people food, ick!! Can't stand the stuff! Also, Pit R Pat cat candy..love it!
Skills: Knocking stuff off of any table, counter or shelf!! Dancing on hardwood floors
Arrival Story: He was brought to me as a rescue from Tennessee, where his kind original owners rescued him from the pound, so he was a lucky kitty from the beginnning. I fell in love with him at first sight. He is a big, happy bundle of white fur who loves everyone! Anybody that visits gets "flapped" by his big plumetail!
Beau lies in the window and sings at the top of his lungs (being deaf he doesn't have a clue to how loud he actually is, it's so cute). Beau loves his box fan and will stretch his paws on it, to angle the air stream to his liking.
Bio: Beau is one busy kitty, he loves to run around and chase imaginary things and is full of energy in the middle of the night so I try to keep him up during the day so I can get some sleep :) Lying around in the middle of mom's work and clearing my desk is a favorite pasttime. He is a loving kitty who rarely leaves my side. My furry, white shadow. He really knows he's loved.
Last week, mom brought me a present, a new recliner! She thinks it's for everyone but actually it's all mine :) Being an inquisitive, semi-intellectual kind of furrball, I like to catch up on my tv watching in the evenings. When mom watches, so do I. She already has her favorite recliner to sit in, so the new one is all mine! If I have a love attack, I just jump down and visit mom a little, then go back to curl back up in my cushy, comfy recliner. Fluffy hasn't shown any interest in it, he prefers the massage recliner across the room. If he goes near MY chair, though, I'll make sure to stake claim in my usual way..a well placed paw to the face (hehe).
All us couch potatoes are happy. Food, toys, lots of love and of course, lots of luxurious cat naps. The life of a pampered housecat is tough, but somebody's got to do it, might as well be me (ok, and Fluffy too).
Fall is beginning to set in here in northeast Ohio. I am a southern cat and this is my first fall up north. As things begin to cool down, mom turns off the ceiling fans and lets the cool air come in, but keeps closing the windows a little more each day. I am a very furry kitty and have grown a thick, luxurious coat, more than I did down south! I still get a little cold now and then, so I head to mom, and wedge myself against her to stay cozy. I purr and knead the blankets, and revert back to little kitten in my mind. Mom brushes and pets me, and I purr all the time.
If I'm not up with mom in the recliner, then I'm on my back on the floor next to it as she works. I watch tv upside down in this position nearly every day. Every now and then mom gives my brother and I cat treats, we sure do have the life!
Mom recently bought Fluffy and I a Kitty Kube, a soft, fake fleece padded cube with a hole in the side for us to crawl in, sort of a box but much softer. We love it, and have daily play-fights with eachother over who gets to be in it first. Next time mom goes to Wal-Mart, she's going to have to get another one. We love our Kube and I deserve it all to myself :D Life is good, I'm a happy furrball.
I am purring more than ever now that my family and I moved all the way from south Florida to northern Ohio (near Cleveland). My brother Fluffy and I rode with mom as she drove a 16' truck all the way up to Ohio, my place was behind her seat. She reached over and petted us whenever she could so the trip was actually pretty good. We liked the hotel in Savannah, Georgia a lot, too, and slept all over the place, trying out the cozy spots. Such a fun adventure. We got to sit back and watch mom do all the work, hehe.
We are now living in a really great place in a fun town that is full of tourists for me to watch. Mom put our cat tree in one of the living room big windows so my brother and I can watch everything including many, many birds in the trees from our best seat in the house! Sparrows and wrens chirp at us as we bask in the sun and snooze happily.
Another fun thing is the really nice hardwood floors. Mom hung up my faceted crystal ball so I can chase rainbows on the floor, which mom calls "the kitty disco". Life is great. I wait every day for my rainbows to appear, and am sad on rainy days when they don't. I will let mom know that I want the rainbows by meowing at her until she comes and sees if she can position the crystal in a sunny spot. I have her wrapped around my paw :D
My brother and I love to sit in mom's office as she works, at the big window in there, and watch everything from our cozy spots there. There is perfect counterspace for either me or Fluffy (I make sure it's me, of course and kick him out if I catch him up there). I love sitting up there among mom's knicknacks and knocking a few over whenever I stretch. If she moves them, I find them and knock them over anyways so she can't win. I'm king of my castle..and I sure do love it here. Big, huge purrs.
