Nicknames: Lovey, Love-Loves, Muffy, Muff-Muff, Love Muff, the Muffin. MUFFINSKY!! We found out her previous owners called her "Butt Muffin"! That is a perfect nickname that suits her hissy playtime tantrums.
Birthday: June 1st 2002
Coloration: Black and White
Likes: She loves canned food and vegemite with real butter on toast. She loves to play and wrestle. I had to get her "softpaws" so she couldn't scratch me when she wrestles and plays with me.
Pet-Peeves: Love Muffin used to hate being picked up. Now she allows me to hold her in my arms like a baby on her back and kiss her nose.
Favorite Toy: So far she loves the catnip mouse and the toy with stretchy string and stick
Favorite Nap Spot: She loves to sleep and lounge on my lap. It took her a whole year after adopting her for her to come around. She only liked my husband at first but now she loves me as a nap spot.
Favorite Food: Been giving her Whiskas which she seems to love and found out today she loves pork sirloin. She also loves canned tuna fish.
Skills: She can open cupboard doors with her paws. Muffin comes when you call her by name and follows you.
Arrival Story: A couple in Arizona had to move to Alaska and they wanted to take their five cats but were not allowed. On our catster forums we put together a group that found homes for all the cats so Yeah! To Catster! Even though I have five cats already, I felt very compelled that Love Muffin was to be with us and she could easily be dropped off on their way up to Alaska
Bio: Her first mommy said that she rescued her from some kids who were throwing stones at her. Love Muffin loves to play rough and wrestle. She uses her back feet like a rabbit to punch at you and play bites, (not hard whatsover) She loves playing the "claw" game. "Speak to the hand"! That is when you make your hand come at her like a monster and hold it in front of her face like you are going to grab her. She growls at your hand and will play attack you. When she gets mad, she actually "snorts" at you. That is why I call her the "huffin' puffin' Muffin" When she is tired of playing, she will simply flop down and go to sleep. She also loves to play with me and jump on my ankle and bite them! That is how I found out when I got her why she was already a member of the "black and white ankle biters". Love Muffin also wags her tail when she is happy, just like a dog. She gets so excited when I say, "play toys" and she knows that we are going to have a play time and that excites her.
Now that I am laying in my resting place, when mom comes around the corner to see to the chickens, she always tells me good morning. I have a very lovely spot outside the bedroom window in the back yard with flowers and an angel on top of my grave.
Mom has not gotten over loosing me yet.
When mom and dad adopted me, my owner made sure that they were informed about the lump at the base of my tail that the vet said was harmless. It was just a medium sized fleshly lump that made my tail poof out a bit. Last night momma checked me while I was sleeping in bed with her and noticed that she could not find it!! It is gone! Even daddy noticed this morning when momma showed him! Mom thinks because of after coming here to live, I have lots of greens in my diet to eat and it may have had some kind of herbal effect that removed my lump! I used to be so self conscious about the lump in my tail. It made my tail look a bit wierd by the base and way thicker looking. Now, my beautiful tail just looks like any other kitties, way more normal! My new brother Earl Grey has a stubb tail and he is going to get fixed today! Boy is he ever going to be upset when he finds out why is not allowing him to eat!
Mommy would take me outside with the bunny rabbit and Sasha and Sweetpea in the back yard for a romp. We'd stay in the gated area. I loved to sniff the ground for the first time since I was a teeny baby. I marveled at the buggies and butterflies and went beserk to see a birdie up so close! Now I go outside every day. I love it. I lay under the cherry tree and wait for a birdie to eat a cherry on the ground. I sneaks ups on them likes they don't know I am there. I just love to sit and watch the birdies. So far, I haven't pounced on them yet because I don't think my mommy would like me to hurt them. We have lots of birdhouses in our yard. We have lots of trees for me to explore in and bushes to lay and hide under. I am a good kitty and come in at night and during the day when mommy calls me, I come.
