He rises up on his haunches and runs after Bailey like this and flings his arms at him.


Arrival Story:
My friend's co-worker's Maine Coon cat mated with a domestic shorthair and had three kittens (all black). There were two boys and one girl. I got one of the boys. After I got him home, I noticed that he was more than solid black especially on his tummy, head and neck. When his fur is parted in these areas, you see white and not black. This is a smoke. Also, he has stripes everywhere that are under the coat of black. His hair is still short, but getting longer on the britches and tummy. It looks like his hair is spiked. The texture of his coat is like that of my black lambswool/angora hat.

He has just gotten the bill of health from the vet and I let him play with my boys Sampson Silver Dollar and Bailey Gray Cloud. Samp was pretty good with Merlin and trilled at him. Also, Bailey did the same. All three of them trill to each other. Merlin and Bailey are already friends and have supervised playtimes as Bailey is much, much bigger and sometimes a little rough (in my opinion). When Merlin grows a little more (perhaps a month from now) he can have the run of the house just like Samp and Bail. Currently, Merlin is a little guy and only weighs 2.6 lbs. Bailey is about 12 lbs. and tried to sit on him. I instantly had to break that up. Merlin is so young and hasn't developed his full purrsonality (as cats call it) yet. As his growth progresses, more and more photos will be added here along with developing personality traits. Diary Picks for 2009: 8/31, 11/5 and 11/8.

Yesterday was my first diary entry since Fcb. 23rd and the Diary Gal liked it! That's so cool! Thank you so much for the honor!

I also noticed I got a couple of gifts from my friends. Thank you so much:

1. MAC & IVY - lovely heart;
2. GINGER - cool balloons;
3. SMILEY & LUIGI - pawsome pawmail.

Also, today was a strange day. We had a nasty T-storm that did some damage in our town and the next one to it. A tree fell across Greenbelt Road and part of the roof fell off the Enclave Student Apartments in College Park. Mommy had to be detoured on her way home because of this fallen roof and also when she had to bring Sampy to the vet for his fluids, the detour was longer and more complicated. Luckily, she knows a lot of back roads to the vet.

Anyway,now she and Sampy are safely home and so far, there are no storms. Tomorrow, the temps will be much cooler than those 90 + temps we had all week.

Well, that's about all i can think of right now except I'm glad Catster is working today. Hopefully, there will come a time when we can find it safe to change our backgrounds. Christmas in July is getting old!

I can't believe that I haven't written anyting since February! My goodness, time does fly by quickly!

Here's a little update on me: I went to the vet's for a checkup and everything was fine except the vet thinks I'm 2 lbs overweight. Can you believe that? I don't think I need to lose that weight as I'm the same size as I was last time and I'm good at maintaining my 17.1 lbs. The vet thinks 15 lbs is a good weight for me. Whatever! If there was a way I could donate those 2 lbs to Sampy, I would do so as he's all skin and bones now. Poor guy!!

Yes, our dear Sampy has a lot of issues and his tremendous weight loss is one of them. He eats like a bird. Mommy thinks the painkillers and his tooth problems are the culprits. He's also on sub q fluids once a day to see if his kidney values get better.

Sampy does need a lot of purrs. They would be appreciated.

Lastly, I wish everycat a safe and Happy 4th of July!

Purrs & Breeps,

I can't believe that it's almost March. I'm so excited that Catster isn't shutting down! What a pawsome relief that is for all of us!

We've been busy around here and the weather has been a roller coaster ride. We've had deep snow which has melted because of the heat wave we had this weekend. It got up to 63 degrees both days. Unfortunately, a cold front is heading this way tonight and we'll drop to 43 degrees during the daytime tomorrow. More snow is expected on Wednesday. I hope not! We've had too much snow already. Believe me, I'm ready for springtime!

Anyway, I got to run. It's time for my beauty sleep.

Purrs & Breeps,
