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!

Forums Motto: Give me a cat w/hair long beautiful hair
We missed all the ice!
Now isn't that nice!
We missed all the snow!
Now way to go!
Now we got rain
And I can't complain!
As it'll be sunny later
With temps rising 50 or greater!
But with all this lovely and nice
On Saturday we'll pay the price
A POEM TO TWO DOVES
Two doves sat on the outside windowsill daily
When they saw me they asked, "will you eat us Bailey?"
I said, "no way will I do that
as I'm a dry food-eating cat."
But if you were chickens, be assured I would eat you good
'cause chicken is my other favorite food!"

MAD BAIL & BEYOND THE HEAT DOME
I'm Mad Bail and we've got do get out of this so-called "Heat Dome". It's just out and out nasty and unbearable! This heat and humidity needs to be chased away! We need relief in the form of RAIN!!!
So, all my Catster friends who are also under this "Heat Dome", let's do a raindance and purray for rain to cool it off!
I too am sad about the upcoming demise of our beloved Catster! I was not quite a year old when I joined this wonderful site on March 14,2006. I've made a lot of friends which are still friends on FB and have lost a lot of friends due to their journey to the Bridge. My dearest girlfriend, Colleen and my sister Camille Rose passed a day after the other. That was an intense year 2012.
On the other side, I've written a lot of poetry about the weather and birds. I've parodied songs, titles of songs and sayings and gave new twists to some of my inventive stories, such as "Nicole and the Super Soaker", my pawty with the frat boys who used to live next door, reciting poetry to two mourning doves, etc.
During this week, I'll feature these highlights of my diaries. Mommy has to get some free time to do this between work and doctors' appointments.
