Likes: attention from Mom and Dad and food. YOUR food!
Pet-Peeves: when you don't give him attention or food when he wants it or when Mommy sits up when he's busy sleeping on her hair.... update: When ever ANYONE comes to visit.
Favorite Toy: Pens, moucies (specially the orange one!), Mr Wuggy, string, and anything laced with nip!
Favorite Nap Spot: Mommy's hair on the pillow or in a nook or on Mommy's chest or Daddy's hammock-lap or dangerously close to sister or in Meowrmies sleep-nook.. edit: Anywhere NEAR his beans or under blankets/covers.
Favorite Food: human food it seems.. he's quite fond of meat of any sort. A real Mans' man! Ebon's favorite human food to steal is PEA SOUP! Often he demands having his own serving!
Skills: He's managed to antimodate the 13 year old cat away from his food by staring at her. o_o; Also has figured out how to turn on the tap in the bathroom!(old house)
Arrival Story: I was sleeping and my sister was scaling the walls of their cage (one of those big two level ones) and meowing. SHE drew mom's attention. She was sold but 'small black male' was still available. It took her a while but she picked me up and snuggled me good and fell in love INSTANTLY! She knew she had to have me when She held me out to look at my face and I jumped back onto her chest and snuggled under her chin. Daddy called and said "We are NOT getting another cat!" and came in to rescue Mommy. Mommy was on the phone with HER daddy so she handed me over to Daddy, who also instantly fell in love with me! So they put money down and came back for me on Friday two days later.
Bio: Ebon was originally a barn cat. He and his siblings were found at about 3 weeks and brought to the pet store. Ebban was the only one left and he's made the perfect little addition to our family if a bit rambunctious. I needed a snuggler and that's just what I got!
Edit: 2010 Ebon is now older. He's lived through all the cats he was living with being taken away and has moved SEVERAL times. He loves the new girl in the house (~) but is antisocial and does not like other visitors. When it's just the family at home he relaxes and enjoys sleeping near his beans. Ebon no longer sleeps with me snuggled in my hair like he did when he was a kitten but will sometimes still snuggle with me in bed. He likes to snuggle with Daddy when I'm not home. He has taken to snuggles where he's UNDER a blanket and has become quite the burrower! Once when a stranger came be crawled up under the foam on top of the BED! lol. He does come hang out near you (within petting reach) when you're watching TV though and isn't above letting you know he wants some attention. We still hold to that he is our/the original Emo Ninja Kitty. XD
Lives Remaining: 9 of 9
Forums Motto: yes.. leave the pea soup unattended.. XD
Mom picked me up the other day and we went on a car ride. I don't rememeber them being that scairy!! Then she locked me in this strange bathroom with Pema in her cat carrier and they made noises out in the hallway.. then she let us out.. And we were moved to a compleetly new place.. it smells funny and is smaller and colder and ALLEY IS GONE!!! :'O I looked EVERYWHERE and she's NOT HERE!! I don't like it here at all. Strange noises come from the walls instead of the floor. I spend most of my time hiding in Mommy and Daddy's bedroom or under their blankets. Mom didn't know I could burrow under them, but I like to hide in the blanket tangle. Just hope they don't squish me!
Daddy says we're going to be here for a long time.. Maybe a year. I'm slowly starting to get used to it.. Guess I'll have to. I don't growl at the noises any more but I am still nervous about strangers comming into the house so I either run to investigate or run and hide when the door makes noise. At least my cat-castle is here now.
Mommy's been throwing around words like sunshine and spring for a week and finnaly there's a bit comming in through the front door window. Alle and I like to hang out infront of it in the afternoon in hopes of soaking some up. I wish Mom and Dad would open the blinds, but they keep making excuses like 'they're broken'. *snort* Looks nice out.. :) Hope everyone is enjoying the sunshine!
Mommy keeps comming home from her parents feeling sad. I have been snuggling her lots and we have been spending LOTS AND LOTS of time together-even when she's not feeling sad! I love the attentions I be gettin'! Daddy loves me too! Lots! I stay with them at night. I like to wake Mom up around 9-ish by laying down on her pillow with my bum on her head or laying on her chest/side and stretching my tail out JUST far enough to reach her face.
I like it here. Mom and Dad say this place agrees with me. I'm glad to have a new friend to play with. Ally is SO much fun to play with!! We run around and around and around all the time! She keeps stealing my mousies and saying they are hers but I steal them back! MWAHAHA! Oh well, Mom makes sure we have LOTS. (And tries to keep my favorite-the orange one-in my room for me.) Pema even seems to like it here. She's mellowed out a bit since the move-which was surpizing considering how traumatizing the move had to have been for her! Mom and Dad haven't unpacked yet though.. I wonder when they'll get to it and give me and Ally the empty boxes!! Oh well. Time to go to bed I think.. Mom looks tired.
