Brown Tabby

Company that visits our home

The other cats, making him move - from your lap or anywhere else

Favorite Toy:
Any that roll around

Favorite Nap Spot:
I have my own bed

Favorite Food:
I'm not picky, I eat mostly crunchy niblets

When I get excited and want to play chase, my legs start moving while I stay in place- like a toy being wound up and let loose!


Arrival Story:
Mom found me under a car in the Target store parking lot. I was pretty thin and ragged. Ironically, my coat is called Classic Tabby, which forms a big bullseye pattern on both my sides. Hence my name!

It took a long time for Target to feel comfortable in our home. When he arrived our family welcomed him but he freaked out. When he freaked out it freaked them out. We thought we'd put him up for adoption but he is very sweet and more outgoing than most the family. Target often engages visitors to our home, we'll joke that he's asking them if they have cats at home, and if not maybe he could be their only one. It took quite awhile but gradually he has become less concerned about his cat competition for Mom's affection and spending more time on her lap making biscuits and instigating cat stampedes and hide and seek with the cats.

Forums Motto:
Pet me....I'll drool!

The Groups I'm In:
PETS for OBAMA, Love 'em? Fix 'em., President Isabel's Animal Abuse Commission, Rowdy Naughty Bawdy Cats and Dogs, Terrific Tabbies

Dear furrriends,

I just had to take a break from the intensive angel training program I’m enrolled in to check in with all of you. When I’m not learning trade secrets from the real pros up here I’ve been doing my best to keep a watchful eye out for all of you, no easy task either… guys are all over the place! But know matter what I’m doing, always, all of you, are in my heart *drool*.

Sometimes I think I’ll never get the hang of the angel life. I’m a pretty good cat – I managed to get here, but I like to have fun just as much as any earthly cat! I wish some of the angels had more of a sense of humor, especially the really die-hard (no pun intended) ones who’ve been here a long time, they take their job too seriously! So, let me’s really, really hard to just play “hide”….and not seek, and apparently we’re not supposed to hunt and chase and play with any little thing that moves, which is what I used to do, we are supposed to respect all the little creatures residing here (there is a cat-only “canned” hunting ground with robotic prey, but where’s the spontaneity, the intrigue, there?). Then there’s the flight training, I have got myself into trouble more than once when my legs go into full gear before it’s time to take off and fell flat on my face…..thank goodness for soft landings in the clouds we use for runways. It really takes some masterful coordination! I thought all the things the angels do just came naturally, boy was I wrong, you really have to work at it!

Oh, I need to thank all of you, too. Leaving when and how I did was very rough on my Mom, and the kind things you cats did for me and for her was for certain a big help to us both. The rosettes, the purrs, the candle lighting……engaging her and distracting her and the rest of kitties at home was just what she needed! What are those candies that are hard on the outside and soft in the middle? They are just like my Mom! Her lap and head scratches are sorely missed, I have yet to find a good replacement for that here!

I did see that every cat had a grand time in Vegas last week. At least several angels were coveting *hopes his superior’s didn’t hear use that no-no word to describe their obvious envy* Blade’s incredibly pink bling! I could hardly stay away, matter of fact, when I saw my sweet Bean in her show-stopping showgirl style, I snuck down there for a few up-close and purrsonal peeks *drool and imagines nose kissing his furgirl*. And don’t let Oliver fool you, that innocent face and boyish good looks take him a long way….all that about being on the bus the whole time you all were playing….Not! Ol’ Target saw him slip in that Pussycat Club with 24/7 live shows! That saying there……what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, I guess that’s kind of like here….but I think it’s much more exciting there!

Well, I’ve got to get to my Intermediate Guardian Strategies class now. It’s been nice meowing to you all, I miss you, until next time….



I've got the best furrriends!

Dear Diary,

I couldn't believe my eyes when I got home today from the vet.....I got 5 rosettes while I was there! I've NEVER had this many! And lots of messages, many furrriends asking how I am and wishing me well. Well, I think it worked you guys!
For those of you that didn't know I had a urinary blockage and had to have an instrument of torture put in to relieve me. As much as I hated it it must've done the trick because on the way home I peed in the carrier just like I always do *a little embarrassed* .....
My poor Mom, she really got her signals crossed, cuz the week before I stopped peeing I was spraying all over the house and she thought it was a retaliatory gesture because she came home with some stinky foreign man cat smell on her. And I was really trying to tell her "it hurts, Mom, mee-owww-eee this hurts!"
I gotta thank my buddies for those rosettes, Blade, Nemo, Fortitude, Ravi and Tir.......what a righteous bunch of tabbies. I am very purrroud to call you my furrriends!

p.s. And course it doesn't hurt to have a doting girlfurrriend who's the most beautiful *feeling this is an understatement describing Bean* tabby inside and out.

It’s not that I didn’t want to write, but I’m usually busy sleeping, eating or trying to figure out how to do just this….I got some extra nuggies tonight! Mom was curled up in a chair about to eat dinner. Her toes were hanging out over the edge of the chair, and I found out if I rubbed my head up against them, well… felt really good! It was a great massage so I kept doing it….and while doing that I figured out I could jump in her lap while she tried to eat and, this is really neat….if I kept sticking my nose in her armpit it made her decide she should pet me…..long strokes from head to tail! Then she laughed and it surprised me, but I was liking being petted so much I didn’t care….but I guess she was laughing because when she pet my face her fingers got all wet cuz I kinda drooled….. it felt sooo good!!
Well, this was all about the next best thing to being with my girlfurrriend, Bean. Popularly known as Rasta, she is by far the most incredible cat to grace Catster ever! I mean it….and, thank goodness, she stopped along the way long enough to get to know me…..mmmaa-wahhh! *head bonks and making serious biscuits*
Oh, life is good!
