Arrival Story: Mindy came to us right before a storm. She was only five or six months old and very skiny. At first she slept in a nearby tree until we finally let her in the garage. After awhile she wormed her way into the house..................the rest is history!
Bio: When Mindy came to us , she was already house trained. She was unlike any of the strays around here so someone must of dropped her off. Mindy was very unsual. She didn't like any of the other cats , nor did they like her. She liked being alone, but loved to make you wait on her. For instances she would take her time coming to the door when called. She was also a box lover , a water lover , and a professional bird watcher. Somtimes she would come inside filthy dirty with dust and dirt. But she wouldn't leave her "bed" until she was pure white. Then she'd go and get dirty again! Most of the time she'd come in with huge kuckle burrs all stuck in her long fur. That's how she earned her nickname"kuckly burr" or"kuckle burr"
When Julie arrived as the new member of the cat family, she began staying away from the house more and more. Later we found out that Tommy had been fighting with her constantly and poor Mindy was often scared to come home. Just a few months before she disappeared, she made friends with a "wild kitty". Every evening , at the same time, they would meet at a certian spot and they would lay together and watch the birdies fly by. A rain storm came, just like when Stuby went missing, and she was gone. Maybe she had another home, or maybe she felt that she needed to leave because of the other cats, or maybe was sick? Wherever you are, please know that we'll miss you.~
Waahooo! She put the bird feeder out !! I can't believe she did after last time ! What happened ? I cought a couple birds thats all . Well Melissa didn't think it wasn't bad , nor Mommy , or Meghan! What a couple of party poopers ! Well anyway Melissa put out the bird feeder again . I caught a little wren and Melissa got soooo mad , why? I was just bringing you a little present!!
So this morning I went outside , and Melissa told me " Don't you dare go over to that bird feeder !"
Whatever I said. And I went over to the bird feeder and waited for a birdie. Then all of a sudden I herd "Mindy what did I tell you......." (I have no idea where she was when she said that , and I thought us cats were sneaky!) With that she came out there can spanked me put me inside. Finally she put me back outside.........back to the ol' bird feeder..... then I heard out of nowhere........."Mindy! Get away from that bird feeder!" Yikes ! I ran inicently to the door. But after awhile I went right back to the feeder. Well before I knew it here comes Melissa . I jumped up and purrred " I wan't doing anything....this bird said to come on over so I ....never mind"
Then I saw it ! She had a squirt bottle in her hand ! Double yikes. She poured water all over me and I ran but I made shure I hind in close spots near the bird feeder. But that didn't stop her .......we ran all the way around the yard till I finally ducked into a spot where she couldn't get me! She went back inside ......back to the feeder!
Here she came again! Finally I left the birds alone....but don't worry I'll be back birdies!!!!I'm not afraid of a little water. Then Melissa calls me and takes me inside ....I guess she thinks I'm done terrierizing the birds! Hehehe.
OK Peoples !!!!! Hello anyone one listening ? Corse not ! Those humans never do and its sopose to be all about ME ! So I am training them to listen or do as I command ! Mommy is always a little hard to pursuade to get up and feed me in the morning ! Its 6:00 am too , and they call us lazy ! I never bother Dad because hes already out the door by the time we get let out of the pantry. Meghan is a lot harder then Mommy because she always has her door closed. But Melissa's door is very easy to open! I just give it a little push , then I purrrr really loud , jump on her bed and lick her face ! If that doesn't wake her up ........I scratch on her hamper and get on her shelves and knock thing over. Usally she alwasy gives in to my commands , but somtimes she throws me out the door . But that doesn't stop me, back in I go again. If I want attention I just tare up some toilet paper , that really gets them running ! But they can never stay mad at me long........ 'cause I give 'em my sweet and sorry look! Hehe.
Hey Diary ,
Yesterday was somthing called Easter . Have no clue to what it was , anyway I couldn't get on the computer to tell about it 'cause the humans were hogging it up.
Well when the family came home , Meg and Lissa ( the kids) had a sag full of what they called jellybeans! Yummy ! Meg put hers up , Lissa just laid hers on the bed . Hehe , silly girl . I ya know I just love candy or anything sweet. So I nibbled a on a few jellybeans untill Lissa caught me ! Then when I went outside with the girls Meg put me in the sprinkler . Who do thye think they are ! Putting poor kitties in the water , sheesh !
Oh , about the "new kitty" , Patty . Shes ok . We sniff noses and stuff , just don't go into the house .
