Favorite Food: Whatever doesn't eat her first, although she has a preference for Merrick Before Grain canned quail.
Skills: Chasing the peephole in the front door, being cute
Arrival Story: Saavik was one of four orphaned kittens that was brought into the vet clinic where I worked by a client. He and his wife cared for the kittens and got their vaccines, but they were not planning to keep them. My husband and I took Saavik, and by the time they were down to the last one, they changed their minds and kept him themselves.
Bio: Saavik's name in Romulan means "Little Cat," and when she was a kitten it was very appropriate...she was teeny. She's since made up for it though, and thunders through the house like a big cat now!
I was tagged by my good friend Lucy Lou. Now I share 7 facts about myself, then tag 7 of MY good friends.
1. My furguy is a ROCK STAR! (Joey Ramone)
2. I live with a human kitten, Rosaleen.
3. I (along with my sisters) am an admin for the Pet Poetry Group--a REALLY cool group!
4. My family is full of Harry Potter fans! We own all the books and the movies.
5. I have an eating disorder. It's called Pica disorder...I eat stuff that's not food. My favorites are string and yarn.
6. Sometimes I have to be sedated when I go to the vet. I get nervous.
7. I am my Mommy's GrandMommy's favorite kitty. She says I'm pretty!
Ok, so my GrandMommy bought some sneakers for the human kitten (Rosaleen) for Christmas and they are COOL!! They blink when she walks, steps, runs, or moves them just right. They are very pretty and entertaining.
Well, they are at a distance! I tried to sneak in for a closer look today, and Rosaleen stepped on me! It wasn't on purpose; she's only a baby, after all. But still, it hurt! I yowled really loudlya nd Daddy came running,b ut by then it was too late! Rosaleen was all confused and so was I, trying to run away! We were making circles around each other!
Later, after things had calmed down, I let Rosaleen pet me to say she was sorry. Only one pat, though. I have my limits...
I cuddled with Rosaleen and Mommy on the couch yesterday. I snuggled down on the blanket and Mommy sat Rosaleen next to me. She petted me and I didn't run! I'm not one to let her gets hands on me too much; I've seen her get ahold of Jadzia! But she was really gentle with me and only pulle d alittle on my foot once or twice. Mommy stopped her doing that, and it was actually nice. I purred and kneaded the air a bit and Mommy thought it was really cute. Then she took Rosaleen to go eat and I went into the bedroom to nap some more.
Maybe she's not so bad. I mean, I wouldn't wanna share a litterbox with her, but I'm nto as nervous as I was before.
