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!

I'm one of the Diary Picks today! The Diary Gal liked my December 1st diary (the last one I wrote). Now it's December 11th and Catmas is getting closer. Also, thanks so much Diary Gal for honoring me today!
I also thank my pawsome friends for their gifts and concats:
Also, every year a day before Mommy's birthday, December 18th, Merl posts his "Catmas Story" and will do so this year too; he may post it earlier though because of Mommy's schedule that week. I also have a song "Twelve Days of Catmas" which I posted last year and perhaps the one before it. I may post it this weekend.
Lastly, Joss loves to chase me up the stairs a lot. Still, she can't catch me. Yep, I'm pretty fast for an almost 9-year-old cat! I got strong athletic legs!
Well, that's about it from me. Have a pawsome night.
OMC, I can't believe it's December 1st already! Christmas is right around the corner.
Also, I concat Joss for her multitude of Diary Picks this month and as a matter of fact, last month too. She's been rolling! I don't know what her secret is. Perhaps she's the Diary Gal's fave.
Also, our pages are all about snow flakes. The boys got ones with white flakes on blue backgrounds and the girls got pink ones. Yingy got a green one. Zinger Bug, where we usually get our backgrounds didn't have Christmas backgrounds up yet. That's a bummer!
Also, many shopping centers in our neighborhood are selling Christmas trees. It's too early for us. As Joss mentioned yesterday, our tree is going up on Dec. 21st which is the Saturday before Christmas. I suppose some people like putting up trees early. The only reason I can see for this is they may have out of own relatives stopping by on Thanksgiving so they celebrate both holidays at once. When we have a tree, by NewYear's day, the needles are falling out.
Anyway, stay warm everycat. It!s cold out there unless you live in a warmer state like Florida.
First of all, I extend my concats to Joss for all of the diary picks she's been getting this month and last month too. She's on a roll!
I also wish everycat and their families a Happy Thanksgiving!
Also, I understand from Mommy, Sampy & Joss that there will be some yummy chicken in our house later on tomorrow. I can't wait to sink my teeth into some. We haven't had a chicken party in a long time. It's been always salmon.
