Arrival Story:
My mommy and daddy went to the Humane Society with the intent to adopt one or two cats. Daddy wanted only one. Mommy wanted two so they could keep each other company. We were in the middle cage of a three high stack. As mommy and daddy were looking at some cats in one of the upper cages, Oreo, my brother, started tugging at mommy's pedometer cord. The people at the Humane Society told mommy and daddy that Oreo was more timid than me. But when I got in the visiting room with mommy and daddy, I got really scared and cowered in the corner. I couldn't believe it! Timid Oreo laid on their lap and purred! The lady at the Humane Society said we were making a liar out of her. MOL Mommy and daddy decided that they wanted Oreo and another cat. The lady said that they really wanted Oreo and I to go together because we are so dependent on each other. Mommy and daddy made a great decision and adopted me along with Oreo!

The vet says I was 7 months old when I was adopted in April, 2003. Despite what you read above, I really am braver than Oreo. I try to sneak outside whenever I can. But once I am outside, I stay on the porch and sidewalk. I know how to open and remove the screens from the windows. I am trying to escape to the outdoors. So far, mommy and daddy have caught me before I have gotten outside. I don't know what I will do if I get out. Mommy thinks I will be scared. I enjoy flipping mice up and batting them in the air. I will chase it all over the house doing that.

My Halloween Costume

I belong to several groups. One of the groups, Curious Kitties, is having a themed Halloween party. We have to come dressed as a famous TV, movie or cartoon cat.

I kept thinking I don't know any famous male kitties. I thought and thought and thought. Then it came to me! I wanted to be that cat wearing the lamp shade in the TV commercial who says, "where did everybody go?"

I couldn't remember what the commercial was for. I just remembered the scene. Then a fellow Curious Kitty told me it was a Tidy Cat commercial. So I investigated further and found out the kitty's name is Zinger.

I love to scratch my head on lamp shades. That is why mommy says this is the perfect costume for me. I can't wait. I'm going as Zinger!!!


It's my birthday!

Today is my 4th birthday!

When mommy got up today, she gave Oreo and I treats. I tried to steal Oreo's treats. But mommy scolded me. Can you believe being scolded on your birthday? She told me those were Oreo's treats. She said we had to have an equal number of treats. But Oreo eats so slow! Oreo stepped away so I could have them. What's wrong with taking something somecat offers? Mommy says we will get more later.

This afternoon, she gave us some catnip. She put some on the floor for me but I wanted the whole container. I kept trying to stick my nose in there. Daddy said I was a pig. No, I'm not! I'm a cat! Then she rolled some of our toys in it. I wrestled with those for awhile. Oreo started wrestling with my mice. He doesn't even like mice! How could he!? I had to teach him a lesson so I started wrestling with him. Actually, we end up wrestling every time we get into the catnip. After we were done playing, we went and slept it off.

How long is later? It seems like forever.


Another Lazy Day!!

Today I am doing what I love best. I'm sleeping on the bookcase by mommy's shoulder while she plays on the computer and watches TV. I'm in heaven!

A few days ago, I dashed out of the door and into the garage. Mommy saw me but then forgot I was out there when she came back in. I spent ALL NIGHT in the garage. Mommy and daddy got worried about me the next morning. Eventually, they found me in the garage. Luckily they hadn't put out the lawn furniture cushions so I was able to sleep on them. Mommy said, "That will teach you." I'm not so sure. I thought about going out there again the other day.
