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!

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.
Also, I promise that our pages will be updated this weekend . Poor Mommy' s been so busy at work and running back and forth to the vet for special food and the drug store for Sampy's meds and her own plus food. She wants to have a chill day soon. One a good note, she has the Christmas week off. She'll be taking a "stay cation" at that time so maybe a couple of those days she can stay at home and chill. We'll see about that.
Lastly, Mommy got this app for her IPad which lets us kitties paint masterpieces. Landy is the only one who has figured out how to paint. Poor Joss thinks the virtual mouse that appears and disappears on the iPad screen actually crawls under it. She keeps pawing at the underneath instead of hitting the top when the mouse shows up. Me and the others just stare at it for a little bit then get bored and walk away. In fact, Landy is obsessed with it. Whenever Mommy uses the IPad, he thinks she's going to pull up the painting app. He actually sits next to her and checks out the screen to see if it is up.
Lastly, after a couple of warm days, the cold weather is back. It was 33 degrees this morning and only got up to the mid 50's in the afternoon. I think Sunday will be a tad warmer then next week we'll have some wet snow.
Wll, I'll be on my way. I think Merl wants to write something .
