Arrival Story:
Tuffy was just a little kitty who arrived at a rescue agency with lots of brothers and sisters. His soon to be mom and pop had rescued his brother from the same rescue agency just a year earlier. They found Tuffy and knew he would make the perfect little brother and addition to the family.

I love my home and my brother, Sooty. He pretends not to like to play sometimes, but I know he really loves me. There is so much to explore. My favorite room is the bathroom. I love watching the water in the sink run, playing in the bathtub (I like to play tricks on mom and pop and close the drain), and I love to watch the toilet flush. I have a whole basket full of toys but my favorite are my balls. I like to push them under the washing machine so mom has to fish them out. I am a true mama's boy and proud of it! I love hanging out with her and pop. It's so fun to chase them around the house. I follow them everywhere, sit on the bed when they try to make it, lay on papers they are trying to read, and sit in drawers they are trying to close. I love it when mom and pop sit on the patio with me so I can watch the birds and the bugs.

Summer is the best time of the year. There are so many things to see, do, and chase! This time of year mom always lets my brother Sooty and I laze around on the porch. The bugs are always teasing me, daring me to catch them, and someday I will. I like to roll around on the ground, the patio is great for a nice back scratch. Nothing beats a nice nap in the sun. Prrrrrrr! My favorite place inside is a great cardboard box mom brought home one day. She didn't know it , but as soon as I saw it I claimed it as my own. Oh sure I have a fancy bed mom got me that she says is just right for kitties like me, but hey I like what I like and right now that means my cardboard box.

Wow, what a great time! Mom and dad put a tree in our living room. And the best part, they hung all this sparkly and funny looking things from it. I knew it had to be a new toy for me with all those things to bat at and try to get down. Unfortunately, one day as I set my sights on a small ball hanging from the middle of the tree...wouldn't you know it the whole darn thing fell over. Boy, was mommy surprised when she came home!


What's This?

This weekend, mom and dad brought home a weird new contraption. At first I didn't notice, all I could think about was the great big box now in the living room. Then all of a sudden where our cat box used to be was a strange new box. Not only was it different looking it made sounds too! Sooty and I took awhile to watch what it was doing very closely. Then slowly I decided to be brave and check things out, plus I really had to go potty. Everything was fine, nothing new. I did my business and went off on my way. But then, a little while later, the box started making noise again and poof my perfectly covered up cat litter deposit was there one minute and gone the next. I don't know but I think I like this new thing.
