Following mom around (she thinks I'm a dog!) Sticking my head in the fridge, Chasing Gizmo, sitting on the notebook when the people walk away (warm keyboard!).

Gizmo getting attention, food or just being around. Squirells coming up to the windows. Blue Jays. Oh, and getting my paw stuck in the door when I pounce it.

Favorite Toy:
Gizmo : ) ... oh... and those fuzzy bunny-fur mice... love those too!

Favorite Nap Spot:
Foot of the big bed, The boy's bed, any bed in general

Favorite Food:
Human food is perferable, but I will accept Purina, Friskies and Treats!!!

I keep trying to turn those dang door knobs, but alas, no thumbs!


Arrival Story:
I was in a litter of 7 who all looked just like me. It was my place to keep all the other little buggers in line, but, I guess my owner at that time didn't think so because he made sure I was the first to get a new home... all for the better though... I have my very own castle and I am king! ... Hey! ... Who put that other cat in here?

Let's see, do I have any secrets? ... I clip my own claws, keep those clippers away from me thank you very much. I have a stuffed orange tabby cat I like to practice wrestling with when Gizmo's not around. I love cheese - I prefer mozzerella. Oh, and the old pink tutu over there in the corner... yea that one... just letting you know, that's NOT mine (but leave it there just the same!) Although I am an indoor cat, I do on occassion get out & am proud to say I excel at the live capture and release of wild animals. To date I have caught two moles, two snakes and a Robin. Only one mole didn't make it :( (he was my first and I was in-experienced) I bring the critters to mom to show her I'm ready to host my own show on Animal Planet but she gets mad at me for some reason. Huh - humans.

Hey there! I'm still playing with mice, clawing the couch and asking for out & treats. Life is good.

Gizmo never plays anymore, she only wants to sleep, eat, purr in mom's lap and cry. I tried nipping at her leg today when mom went into an important phone call and instead I got tossed out of the room. Humph... I was just telling her it was impolite to use the litter box while mom was on a call.

Anyway... I'm bored... off to find something to do.


Happy Birthday to Me!

I'm curled up on the back of the computer chair dictating this ...

I had quite the birthday weekend... My age, the Vet lady tells me, has caught up with me. "As they get older, around ten years of age, otherwise healthy cats start showing issues" she said.

Older?! Humph! I have some claws that will show her older.. oh tootsie rolls, not anymore: they clipped those. Anyway I wasn't feeling too hot so mom brought me in. It was the same place I lost a couple of precious items many scratchpads ago. I really didn't want to be leaving anything else behind this trip so I kept close inventory of my belongings.

I ate some catnip on my birthday. After that I just didn't feel right and redecorated the rugs in a way only a kitty can & then stopped eating and drinking. I was given a lump of liquid under my skin and given instructions to take some meds.

When we got home mom jammed a hard lump down my throat. YUCK! But you know... I started to feel better a little while after that. She let me lick up some brown gooey stuff - I loved that. later I even ate and drank water! Mmm. Happy to be home again. This getting older thing stinks.
