Being a Daddy


Arrival Story:
Murray needed an intelligent friend and so Mama & Dad came to the PetsMart adoption Saturday looking for a cat. She picked up one after another and looked in their eyes. I heard her say "Murray needs an intelligent companion, and these cats are stupid." Then she picked me up, looked in my eyes, and said "He's the one - he's very smart."

Before reading this, understand that I am gay. I didn't realize it until I met Murray and we fell in love, so I did have a girlfriend really early in life. I was abandoned in an apartment with my pregnant girlfriend and a litter of kittens. Because of that, the shelter people called me Romeo, which was a bit embarrassing. Mama and Dad renamed me Miles, thinking that Murray and I would be brothers. (Like Frasier and Niles. But I had a big M on my forehead so they changed it slightly to Miles.) The kits I refer to are my adopted daughters Allie and Phoebe, and son, Murray2. Murray and I raised Phoebe together, but I adopted Allie and Murray2 after Murray went to the bridge. We needed more Maine Coons in the house after Murray left. MOL! Since I wrote this, I have adopted Harry as my youngest. Or rather, Mama suggested I adopt another boy and I agreed. What was I thinking? And I have a granddaughter because Phoebe and Gimme adopted Molly. It's fun to let Phoebe do the kitten raising!

Heh- the last few years I keep thinking that's true and catster holds on.

I'm sharing Hondo's body and life is pretty much the way it was when I had my own. I snuggle with Mama and exercise the ragdolls and so forth.

I chose to do this to care for Murray's and my family. I wasn't quite ready to leave them yet. Here's the rundown.

Phoebe is 15! Our little girl. She's technically older than my second life now. But she's tough and quirky. Molly is living in her own room now too, but she has the litter box room, so it's not the best. She seems happy though.

Allie and Murray2 will be 10 this year. They have a morning Maine Coon fight just to get it out of their system. It's a lot of growling and not much real fighting at this age.

Mittens is 2nd in command. Hondo and I use him as our bouncer when fights need to be broken up. Everycat respects him.

And Harry and PorkChop are a couple. They love each other and spend a lot of time together.

We didn't add Moose to Catster because we knew Catster wouldn't last. But he's the baby and we all spoil him. He does hang around with Mittens a lot and Mittens is teaching him style. Mittens has style left over. Moose also has a page on FB, but he's kind of lazy about updating it.

So everycat's fine and we continue on with our lives. We love all our cat friends, too many of whom have moved on to the RB Bridge. But I've been there and back, and I can tell you they are fine and happy too.
Look for Moose on FB! Mama is there too!


Goodbye and Hello!

I was not able to log onto Catster for quite a while, so I do have news. I caught what the vet thought was cat flu and went to the Rainbow Bridge earlier this year.

But I got to celebrate my 26th birthday first! So I'm happy with that run.

Then I spent a couple of months at the Bridge with Murray1 and Jacob. They showed me everything. Murray has a flying lego vehicle that he piloted us around in.

But I was needed at home. So I asked Hondo if he would let me share his body so he would be more relaxed in our house. It's a win-win! I get to take care of Mama and Daddy a little and he gets to enjoy life more.

I know some of you cats won't believe it, but you don't have to. I'm happy and Hondo's happy! That's all that counts. And I feel so much better! Hondo is only 14.

*Miles toddles in leaning heavily on a cane.*

Just kidding! I'm getting around better than Catster these days. MOL

Since there are new owners, we'll take a wait and see attitude because we know there's a mess to clean up. For example, it doesn't let me go into my old diaries today.

But at least we're still here, both me and Catster. We may not always work well, but we're here.
