Why can't I go OUTSIDE???

My mom keeps saying something about "hot" when I greet her at the door for my evening outing. (You see, I'm not allowed to leave the apartment unless I'm wearing a harness and leash - like a dog!) I don't know what "hot" means, I don't *care* what "hot" means, but she just ignores me and sits down watching that big, noisy box instead of taking me out. She often points to the round thing hanging on the wall on the balcony (like she expects me to show interest or something). It appears to be stuck at 100 most of the day, so I think it's broken. Why she thinks it's soooo important is beyond me. I just want to find some grass to eat! Maybe she'll take me out this weekend...


Is that a rat or a cat?

Oh, help. Mom brought home something that looks like a gray rat the other day. Unfortunately, it smells like a kitten and sounds like a kitten. I can't believe she did this to me. We were doing so nicely just the two of us. I had her all to myself! Now she's gone and ruined everything. What am I gonna do? She's let me look the little thing over, but I'm not impressed. Thank goodness it's not noisey, but it's so....what's the right word.....bouncy! And it wants to attack my tail! Mom keeps telling me it's my new baby sister, and that she needs my help to raise it. I have my doubts. I've never had much of a maternal instinct. Why should I start now? This is all very disruptive, but at least I have my days to myself while Mom takes the little critter to work with her. I suppose this will all work out, but my nerves may get frayed in the process. I also have my door out to the balcony. It's too tall for this little squirt to crawl over, so I plan on escaping to my hammock as much as needed. This story is not over yet....


I apologize

Forgive me for being whiny, everyone. I was just so shocked that Mom brought home another cat...I didn't know what to do! Mom was all in a panic this morning because the kitten wasn't to be found. She ended up being curled up in a blanket where we could't see her. Fortunately, the kitten came out of hiding and everything was okay. Whew! I knew she had to be somewhere in the vicinity, but after I saw how panicked Mom was, I reconsidered my position on my new roommate. Ends up, she's not so bad afterall. She's still overly bouncy, but I've decided to let her play with my tail, and I won't hiss at her unless she gets out of line. Besides, I needed a home at one point and this little sprat needs a good home, too. I know she'll be loved and well taken care of. I speak from experience. ~P


Camera in the house

Mom got a new digital camera for Christmas. She's been fussing around learning how to use the thing lately. She took some pics and videos of us last night while we were out on the front side of the apartment. I'm not sure if this is a good thing or not, especially since she took that unflattering photo of me trying to snooze in my kitty cup. (Note from Mom: the camera just can't capture how gorgeous her BIG blue eyes are!)


Heartbroken Beyond Words

By beloved Phoebe decided to leave Friday night, August 21st. She was curled up on the floor in the bedroom when I went to bed Friday night and was missing from my 2nd floor apartment when I got up at 6:30 am the next morning. A neighbor saw her around 11:00 pm outside the apartment, but did not recognize her and thought she was just a stray cat.

I won't list all my efforts to find my girl, but none of them have brought any results. Needless to say, I am devastated.

She came into my life as a stray and has decided to leave my life the same way. It was her decision to leave and jump from a 2nd floor balcony to do what she deemed very important to her. I must respect that.

I love you Phoebe. 14+ years were not enough. I will miss you more than you could possibly know.

Love forever and always,


4 months

It's been 4 months today that Phoebe disappeared. I'm changing her status to "no longer with us". It just kills me to do it because it means I'm admitting she's really gone. At least the last time I saw her she was happy and curled up in her pink bed - not at the vet being euthanized. That I am thankful for.

I miss you girl and always will, but it's time to let you go.
Love forever and ever,

Tomorrow will be one year since Phoebe decided to leave for her last and greatest adventure. I miss my girl terribly, but am very thankful for the many years I had with her.

Phoebe, I will always love you and will miss you the rest of my life. Thank you for giving me so many good years together.
Love, hugs, purrs, and kisses,


Still miss you
