Nicknames: Bay, Bail, Bailafur, Bailey Wailey, skrit or skrat, Pluffer, Pluff-Pluff, Fluff et a Puff
Birthday: April 2nd 2005
Coloration: Blue Smoke
Likes: playing at 5
Pet-Peeves: moist cat food
Favorite Toy: feathers
Favorite Nap Spot: on bed in computer room, living room couch, or window seat I purchased for him and Sampson
Favorite Food: chicken and Gorton's lemon butter salmon
Skills: He runs and hops like a bunny down the stairs.
Arrival Story: I found him in Petsmart in Greenbelt, MD in June 2005. It was love at first sight. I purchased him and brought him home. I had lost my dear Bentley a month before and I needed to get Sampson a companion. He needed a friend and Cammie will not let him near her.
Bio: Bailey Gray Cloud is now Bentley's replacement as a show cat. He has been to three shows so far and is bringing in the ribbons. He is still a little shy, but time will most likely help him get used to it. Bentley was shy at first and ended up getting first place, and best of the best a lot of times. Bailey is bringing in 4th and 5th places now. I enjoy this little guy. He is such a ham and runs around the house yelling "brrrrrrrrr" as he flies up and down the stairs. He and Sampson play, but Sampson will tire out and hisses to let him know that he's pooped. Imagine a teenager chasing a 60 year old up and down the stairs. They would hiss too. I have arranged to get Bailey a younger playmate to take some of the vigorous exercise away from Sampson Silver Dollar. The new guy is to arrive on this Sunday. NOTE: I also call Bailey Gray Cloud Skrit or Skrat (Scrat - the prehistoric squirrel in the film "Ice Age") because he runs like Scrat does with his ringed plume tail "a flying".
UPDATE: He got a trophy for second place, a rosette for second place, and a rosette for sixth place in his latest cat show for houshold pets sponsored by the Animal Welfare League of Montgomery County, MD on April 26, 2008. WOO-HOO, BAIL!

This is my first diary since May of 2015. Yep, it's been a long time and I, once prolific boy, find no desire to write anymore, and it's not just writer's block.
You see, Catsterland is like a ghost town and has been that way for a long, long time. It's depressing and I miss my friends! My entry of today, most likely, will not be seen by anyone but Mommy & me. Sad!!
Also, I have a birthday coming up on April 2 and I would like for my birthday present, Catster to be back up and running normally without out these 503 errors and other serious issues.
Anyway, spring is around the corner and things are blooming. So, my spring page of forsythias on Lake Artemesia will remain up.
I'm writing today with hopeful anticipation that Catster will get the Big Fix at the end of this week. They're supposed to put in a new platform at that time. I hope all goes well as does Mommy and my sibs.
This morning, was cooler than the few days before which were in the upper 80's. Because of this cooler weather, us kitties were all wound up and raring to go! Joss, Landy and I were running around and up and down the stairs. In fact, Landy and I got into a little tussle on the stairs. No cat was hurt though. Later on when Mommy was taking a shower (she told me), Landy jumped in with her. He jumped out really fast and knocked over a shampoo bottle. Luckily, the bottle's lid was closed or there would have been a mess on the bathroom floor.
Anyway, I hope all works out with Catster and also with their photo loading devise. I have a lot of cute pics to load up.
Long time, no write. It's been hard to get onto Catster and when we could, Mommy was in Colorado for her Dad's funeral.
So now, I am testing to see if this diary of mine saves. Some friends have mentioned that they couldn't do diaries as they wouldn't save.
Also, I miss dear Sampy and now he has left me the title of "King". I'm the oldest cat in our furmily. To show my ruling powers, I've been exhibiting a lot of Sampy's loving traits (nose kisses and nuzzles to Mommy and even climbing on her chest or next to her shoulder and kneading and purring).
Lastly, we have a summer-like day today. It's currently 79 degrees and sunny in Maryland. Mommy left us a few open windows and are going to soak up the sun and let the soft breezes carress our bodies. Pawsome day!!!
