Arrival Story: My daughter and I had wanted a cat for a long time, but with allergies, I was always worried to get one, and my husband was never a "cat person." This is VERY funny because now Cleo is his baby! I might have tricked him just a bit to get her. My daughter and I were at the humane society, and after seeing what a sweetie Cleo was, I called him, asking if he had thought about the cat request. After he said he was not going to be the one taking care of her, and he knew I would do what I wanted anyway, I handed the phone to my daughter who started shouting, "Thank you, thank you, thank you!" He stumbled with a few, " Ah, ah, I," then he said, "You're welcome." Cleo and he get along great, she talks to him when he gets up for work, as well as greets him when he gets home. He will play with her, and worries if she seems quiet, or sick in any way. As for allergies, as long as she gets her allergy wipe downs, and we keep everything vacuumed we are great.
Bio: Cleo was a stray, three year old cat. She is white with black /gray splotches. She is loving and friendly and loves to be pet behind her ear, on top of her head, under her chin, and on her lower back. She comes and checks up on everybody at night making sure they are okay. She is VERY playful, and cuddly. When it is cold, she will come and lay under blankets, and put her paws on us. It is really cute!
My Family: It took me almost a whole year to warm up and really trust my family. Now I lay on my back and let them scratch my tummy! My mommy had cats while she was growing up, and love us. She knows how smart cats are! My mommy is a teacher for 3rd graders. My daddy was afraid of me at first-he saw my big fangs and thought I would use them to chew people up...hehehehe he knows better now. He fixes people's power, so us cats can have tv, lights, and running water fountains. My brother got taller and moved out to someplace called Florida. He is now married. My sister goes to some place called college. She is living in a place called a dorm. When mommy brought home a fur-sister for me, at first I wasn't happy because I thought mommy would love her more, but now I love her lots and lots because we can play and play! Well that is all about my family- I love them so much!
My Top 7: Here are the top 7 things you need to know about me....
1. I am a stinker, mommy can't read a book without me ripping it out of her hands and head-butting her for pets...you should see what happens when she tried to correct papers!
2. I am sometimes addicted to chewing on paper, plants, and licking wood. A bad habit, I know, but don't we all have them?
3. I have a running water fountain that I drink out of. I would hardly ever touch my water bowl, so my sister used "the voice" until mommy got me this. I LOVE it!
4. I am afraid of being outside unless my mommy is right next to me, and I'm on my leash. I will run to my front door with my mommy and try to get inside.
5. I once ate a guppie, I pretended I didn't, but I really did.
6. I love to watch tv. My mommy even bought me the cat sitter videos-I love them!
7. I sneak into my mommy's bed when she is gone and hide under the covers if I'm cold. She has a waterbed, so it is nice and warm!
TOP 5 Reasons I LOVE BEING A CAT: 5. Tummy rubs and sleeping with my mom and dad
4. Can get away with chewing on paper and licking wood because "I don't know any better."
3. Pets and brushing-esp. if they feel guilty.
2.SLEEPING ALL DAY-IN MOMMY'S BED
1. I am treated like a queen by all, and I deserve it!
I am pretty happy because the liquid medicine is working well....and tastes like CHICKEN!!! So I actually like it...and the treats mommy gives me after are nice too. I have gained some weight and am not pulling out my fur, so mom is happy. Mysty is also happy because I don't pounce on her as much...just a little.
Well the vet called mommy I went from a 5 to a 16 for my thyroid. Now I have to take LIQUID!!! NO MORE GEL!!! Mommy is afraid I will hide because I HATE things in my mouth. I will need it in the morning AND at night. Night isn't so bad because mommy has time to chase me around, but not in the morning.
She says if I will be good she will give me treats, but the last few times she tried to give me meds treats didn't even matter-I would just hide, so mommy said she is worried about me because I have lost 2 pounds already.
I don't mean to worry mommy, but I just hate meds, and I don't want to get them!!!!
Well mommy has this new place she like to talk on, so I don't get on here a lot....she is GREEDY-yes...I SAID IT!!! GREEDY with the laptop. I would get my own, but the puter place said catnip couldn't buy anything worthwhile :(
So here it goes...
My thyroid is still being a pain...my meds have been increased 3 times in the past year :(
BUT...I seem to be holding my own and am doing well. My mommy said she will start feeding me upstairs instead of downstairs because I don't like to walk the stairs so much anymore and she thinks I will eat more if she keeps the dishes upstairs. The only problem is MYSTY...she NEEDS to go downstairs to eat cuz she is still chunky!!!
Mommy posted new pictures of me and a movie...she told everyone that I had just beaten up my sister and was trying to look all sweet-she doesn't know the WHOLE truth...Mysty deserved it!!! She DID!!! REALLY!!!! SO I AM SWEET REALLY!!! I AM!!!!
