Arrival Story:
After Bill moved on (more info on Bill's page) I wanted to make sure I got a cat with NO medical problems. A fine shelter was holding adoptions at the Petsmart in Chula Vista, CA. One fuzzy grey little boy with bright blue eyes (yes, blue) made unique squeeling noises. He wanted a nice home, so I gave him one.

Xander does not "meow" unless he is in some degree of stress. If he's stuck or really hungry, or needs to be let in, then meow, the rest of the time it is a squeek or chortle. He is afraid of many things, noises, especially power tools, vacuum cleaner and dogs cause him to freak somewhat. He does not want to meet new people at all. Since moving from California to Pennsylvania, he has had another cat to play with and he seems to enjoy the company. He enjoys being rubbed all over, and is happy when I come home, often waiting in the front window for me to pull up.

I'm worried about dad's crazy dream!

My dad had a disturbing dream last night. He wasn't so bothered by it, but it frightens me! In this dream, he had two mouses. MOUSES! He carried the mouses in his pocket, and took them out when he went places and they did things and ate cheese and stuff.

Dad doesn't take me places, only to the stupid vet-doctor. He doesn't put me in his pocket! He tried to put me inside his coat once, but it was crowded and I had to struggle to get out, and he laughed even though I think I scratched him up a bit. He's got a nutso sense of humour sometimes!

Here's the worst part, in the dream, he kept the two mouses upstairs, because I had to stay downstairs. He told the mouses I would bite their heads off. Now, mind you, I haven't ever met a mouse that I DIDN'T bite head off of, but still, this dream seems to have painted me as some sort of a negative character. I guess in real life, I would bite the heads off of any mice I found in the house but that doesn't give dad a right to have a dream about mouses!!!


Dad's got in for me, I think!

Hey, everycat *looks around nervous-like*

I need a drink. *swills a couple of glasses of Hallowscream punch then loads a large mug with CN Ale*

Dad hates me. I thought we got along pretty well. He works, then uses the money he gets to buy me food, so I let him rub me once in a while... What more can I do?

Well, today he comes home, shoves me in the carrying box, which I don't like, and took me to a place I've never been before! Then this woman who I don't know poked, prodded and did stuff, then typed things on her computer. I can only assume dad's mad at me. Why else would he put me through this?

Then when it was time to leave, he talked to some other people at the front desk of the place. They said something about a "visa" so I can only assume I'm being deported or sent out of the country for some reason.

*drink - chug - gulp*


Steelers Bail Early

Well, the Steelers folded early in the playoffs, which I didn't really expect. So I guess I'll just concentrate on hockey, which is a superior sport anyway!

Hey, there's crazy warm temperatures this week. Going into the 60's dad says it's too warm. I say it's good, because I get to go outside and play! Whenever I get to do what I want, it has to be a good thing! Next week it will be all freezy again!
