Arrival Story:
My friend contacted me a few days after she was born and I said I wanted to see the litter. They were so tiny! There are so many females on the farm having more and more kittens I said I would take the only girl. Then we found out there were two. We planned on bringing home Bastess and her sister Latte in August, but unfortunately Latte died. That day we brought Bastess home.

Sister to Latte (Rainbow Bridge), Gray Boy (Rainbow Bridge), Black Boy, former roomate with Lucky Felix, originally from Trivoli.

Lives Remaining:

To the tune of (the car ad)

Well I was hungry for some food
What will it be?
Some natural balance or some yummy greenies
Too bad the treats are way up high
And I've got to beg my mom, and I will try

Tre-ats, that spells treats
In my mom's kitchen that's what I need
Thought about eatin my crunchies
But those treats are just so tasty

Now instead of treats im eating NB!
Cause mom said you've had too many and you are starting to look fat!

Tre-ats that spells treats
In my mom's kitchen that's what I need!


Packages of raisins, craisins and other dried fruits should- be banned...

As well as trail mixes and other things that come in plastic zippable bags! Why? Because those human treats sound like our kitty treats! It fools me every time.... I end up begging for cranberries not greenies! Any other cat with me?


My 2nd Catmas!

I was so excited this morning! I even woke Mom up nicely instead of scratching her bed or the walls like I usually do! I was a Good Kitty and so Santa Paws came! He brought Stony and I each a wand toy! Really it's a tail that moves like a snake or a ferret. It's ok. Stony likes it more than me, but if she plays, then I want to play too. Before the toys came out, Mommy gave us some Catmas breakfast, a Salmon Feast! Man was that good! Stony ate too slow, so I helped make it disappear as fast as I could. I asked for a fire in the fireplace, and slept in front of it for a while. It's so nice having Mommy and Daddy home! I really have missed them the past few weeks! This afternoon I have been sleeping under Mom's bed, and I should appear soon. Hope every cat had a great holiday! Merry Catmas to one and all.

Purrs and tailhugs,
