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!

Well, I'm so glad that Cookie Monster and his fleas took a hike! I got in tonight at 9:10 p.m. after trying all day today. Now, as to photos, I'm not sure if that works or even the bio fields. I tried to load a photo yesterday and I was told I exceeded my 10 photos but on the account page it said my Catster Plus runs out in July 2015! I don't know what to believe anymore.
Anyway, I'm doing fine and hope that we can at least put up some fall pics as summer is almost over.
Lastly, Sampy is still hanging in there and taking his fluids and meds like a mancat. His appetite has increased for wet food. He won't touch the dry anymore as it's hard for him to chew. Still, he's very skinny and Joss looks like a football player next to him. She's as big as me!!
Well, that's it for now. Hopefully, we all can start doing our diaries and page decorations on a regular basis.
Oh happiness, it's Furday and so far it's sunny, low humidity and temps. Our windows are currently open and me and my sibs are enjoying it to the max today as this weekend the heat and humidity come back, the windows are shut, and the fake cool air comes back on. Oh well
Lastly, it's great to be able to get on Catster without any error messages. Now, all we need is the go ahead to change our backgrounds and pics.
I haven't written since early May. Between all those DDOS' fleas and Mommy's going to Colorado, I didn't bother to log in. Joss and Sampy have though. Poor Sampy has a lot of health issues. It's tough getting old! Mommy has been back and forth to the vet's ever since she came back from Colorado due to his lower left canine getting infected again. Because of this, his kidney values rose and the vet prescribed sub q fluids for him until further notice; he may also have to receive these fluids for the ret of his life.
Anyway, I'm a healthy big boy. If Sampy wants some of my weight, I can spare a pound. Merl can give him a couple of pounds too.
Well, I'm going to say one more thing; Sampy caught a centipede last night. Mommy saw him do it and she lifted up his paw so it would get away. She doesn't want any of us eating those yucky bugs. She did catch it right after it got away and threw it into the covered garbage pail.
That's about it. If none of this makes any sense, it's because I'm very tired .
