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
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 .
WOWZA! What a happy start to my weekend! I'm one of he Diary Picks today! Thank
you Diary Gal for honoring me!
I also thank my friends for their concats:
1. ANGEL BUDDIE & Family - pawsome pawmail;
Also, we've been having the windows open for several days. We've had temps in the lower 70's - lower 80's during the daytime. Believe me, I love the springtime breezes blowing in the open windows. I also love to lay in the master bedroom windowsill day and night.
Lastly, all the trees are covered with leaves and the late blooming azaleas in our front yard are now beautiful pinks and oranges.
I'm one of the Diary Picks today! Woo-Hoo! It's from a diary I wrote several weeks ago when Catster first started recovering from that nasty DDoS disease. I'm so glad that everything is better! I also thank the Diary Gal for honoring me today!
I also thank my pawsome friends for their gifts and concats:
1. MILO & MALLEE - cool comment & pretty blue rosette;
2. PLATELICKER & Family - cool comment;
3. MAC & IVY - cute ladybug.
Also, I too, along with Sampy and the rest of us, miss our dear friend SMILEY CASSANOVA. It's a terrible shock to everycat. Smiley was only 5 years old when he journeyed to the Bridge. RIP dear friend & purrs to his Mommy & family.
Lastly, we got rain today. Earlier we had a small T-storm. This will bring forth hotter temps tomorrow into the low 80's. This is the first time we're hitting the 80's. That means more than one or two windows open and fans on.
