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!

Today is my 25th birthday and Catster is not closed, so here I am! I'm still healthy for a cat my age.

I celebrated by having chicken broth and chicken last night and tonight. It's my favorite meal. I like lots of other stuff, but chicken is the best.

I want to thank everyone for the gifts for my birthday. Mama didn't get out here to update this until late because we've been so busy with work today. I had to pitch in and help.

And she's at it again, so I'll sign off for now. Love to all of you!

I decided to write to say goodbye to my friends who might not be on Facebook. My bestest friend Rocky Ann may not be, but I'm still in touch with her because she visits with Murray when he visits from the bridge.

Which brings me to my point in a way. I'm still going strong and will be 25 years old on the day Catster turns off the lights. I'm kind of surprised I'm going to outlive them frankly, but the strong survive.

My family and I are over on Facebook at a page called Murraycats. If a clear successor attracts most of our friends, we'll probably join whatever it is too. But to not lose touch, Murraycats will have the info about where we are.

And our family now has grown beyond anything I could have imagined. There's me, Phoebe, Allie, Murray2, Harry, Molly, Moose, Hondo, Mittens and Pork Chop. That's right - 10 of us. Hondo didn't want any leadership responsibilities so I retain those. Hondo, Mittens and PorkChop moved in after their dad ran off and their mom couldn't find a place for the whole family. It's like they were always part of our family so everything's gone really well.

Hondo stays with Phoebe and Molly in their own room. The girls are a bit intimidated by Harry, Mittens and Moose and Hondo likes a peaceful life. He has his own love seat, litter box, cat tree and tv and our parents spend the night back there often. They also get all treats and toys that the rest of us get.

The other 7 of us live in the main part of the house. Mittens and Moose play together since they are HUGE, Harry and PorkChop are always together since they appear to be gay, and the rest of us mill about.

I've loved all of my friends here and hope I will stay in touch with you other places for a long, long, time.


Announcement and RIP Tiskers

We didn't meow much out here lately for a lot of reasons. The big one is that Hondo and I merged part of his family with mine and it was a secret. We were told not to meow because we can't keep a secret.

Anyway, PorkChop, Mittens and Hondo moved in with us last year when their ex-daddy ran off with a strange female. Well Murray1 was on the case when they needed a place and he told Mama who, of course, agreed.

Porky fell in love with Daddy when he and Mama went to pick up Hondo and Mittens, and wanted to come along. Daddy could not say no and now they are inseparable. Also Harry fell in love with Porky so they spend ALL their time together.

Mittens and Moose hang out together and chase each other. The rest of us get out of the way when we see 40 pounds of cat coming at us!

And Hondo is very shy. He tried to live in Mama's closet which was not good. When he saw Phoebe's room with it's own cat tree, tv, and litterbox, he moved in there. Molly joined him and Phoebe and it's just a little strange but they seem happy.

Today we are all heartbroken that Tiskers went to the Rainbow Bridge unexpectedly though. So we are all purring for Auntie Sam because it's hard on humans when we have to leave. Murray1 tells me he'll take good care of Tiskers and I know he will.
