Likes: Food! ... And he has a strange fascination with water.
Pet-Peeves: I can't tell of any... yet.
Favorite Toy: Squeaky mouse Loki never played with.
Favorite Nap Spot: His Mum, the sofa in the guest room.
Favorite Food: He just loves every kind of food, but he's on Hill's Science Plan for kittens.
Skills: He's a master purrer... does it count? And he catches flies, which he'll then eat: I'm so proud of my boy!
Arrival Story: My friend Helene's cat had three kittens and I just fell in love with the only boy, the ginger one. I took him home today, 30th of August 2006.
Bio: Bastian was named after the German footballer Bastian Schweinsteiger. He sort of looks like him.
Bastian purrs like no other cat I've had before. He's a charmer and has a very good nature. He endures Loki's bad temper, loves to beat up Marty (!) and runs wild in the house, like a horse. Bastian has lovely brown eyes and a fascination with water. He'll get in the shower with me (naughty, naughty) and will demand to look closely at me, while I'm doing the dishes. He's weird, but in a loveable kind of way. Catster Daily Diary Pick 01/20/07. BIRTHDAY IS JUNE 8th.
This morning, I caught another mouse. I'm on a roll, no one can stop me!
It's great fun to play with them (can't understand why Meowmy doesn't enjoy it too...) and I'm getting really good at catching them.
I had been training for weeks, months and was prepared for it.
This morning, I caught my very first mouse!
I told Meowmy it was hiding in the kitchen and had been waiting for it to show its face.
Today, Meowmy was about to go downstairs, but before that, she checked on Loki. My big sister was asleep in Meowmy's bed, as usual.
Then, I jumped on the bed and started playing with a mouse. Meowmy thought it was one of the toy mice she buys me and I train with. Soon enough, she realized it was a live one instead! I wanted Meowmy to video the event, but she was so shocked to see a mouse on her bed (what's the big deal, I ask?), that kept on calling people on the phone; she even called Nana, who's in Italy!
Eventually, she got the Juventus sheet where the mouse (now dead) was, and ran downstairs.
Anyway, when she got back in the house, she was very pleased with me and told me I was a great hunter and the best cat in the world (silly Meowmy, I know that already). She also said this meant I was all grown up now and a better mouse hunter than Loki.
By the way, my big sister kept on sleeping...
I am the happiest kitty, because I made my Meowmy happy and proud of me.
I am orange, after all...
