Skills: I like to climb the Shower Curtain. Momma has to drape it up out of my reach. I can "Dance" the "Two-Step" (For Snacky-Treats!) Talking to, & chasing the Laser Lite!
Arrival Story: in 2005, John & I worked at an Allied Van Lines agency, & (I think) one of the other employees "dropped" Junior off, in hopes that I'd try to catch him & keep him. He was my "Office Cat", for about 2 months, until my Boss found out about him & said he "had to go", at which time John gave the o.k. to bring him into our home family. He is very Wildly out of control, most of the time, I guess I'm just used to older, lazy cats!
Bio: He was totally fascinated with the Fax Machine at work. When it would "Beep" he would drop everything & go sit on top of it & try to catch the papers as they would come out. He likes to get in my face when I'm on the p.c. He constantly bugs me for Snacky-Treats & will go out of his way to "Behave Badly" so I will distract him by rattling the Snacky-Treat bottle to get his attention away from whatever he's trying to eat (silk Spider plant). He reaches under the bathroom door & grabs at anyone who gets too close to that side of the hallway (all the others will go out of their way to scamper by really fast, on the other side of the hall.) He has learned how to lift, first, his right front paw, then his left, like a "High-Paw" for a Snacky Treat. I keep his training sessions short, & vary them with tossing Snacky-Treats across the counter, so he can chase them. Sometimes he gets so excited at the Birds, Squirrels & Bunnies outside, that he runs full-tilt into the sliding glass door! Every evening, around 5 p.m., he & Moochy have "Nascar Races" through the house, they run full-speed & ricochet off the kitchen cupboard doors & back down the hallway to slide on the runner carpet & crash into the wall.
Junior also loves to play with water; he actually LOVES it when I take the squirt bottle and spray it directly into his mouth! He "favors" his left side, and if the water rolls off his face and onto his paws, he licks it off.
When he was a kitten, I used to put blue food coloring into the water, and spray the bathtub walls, and he would chase the droplets!
He also loves the song called "CREEPIN' ", by Eric Church, a C&W ditty. (2012)
Hello, my Friends!
Well, this new "door" on Momma's bedroom is very Cool!
Last night, and this morning, I spent almost the entire time, up on the bed, with Momma and Moochy.
Moochy looks very "different", with her shorter hair cut. At first I did not recognize her, she looked so different. I hissed at her!!! Then she "spoke" to me, and I knew her voice.
I have been so confused, for so long, that I almost "forgot" about her. She and I became "Best Friends", back when Momma had to confine us to the bathroom, at night time. (That was "before Smudge"; Moochy and Casper had a "similar" problem to Smudge's and mine; Casper beat her up, a long time ago...)
Momma was reading a Dean Koontz book, this morning, and I was all stretched-out, beside her, and asleep and dreaming of running through Catnip Fields...my little feetsies were twitching and wiggling!
I still sometimes get excited, and bite Momma's fingers really hard. I could probably break one, if I used the full biting pressure of my jaws. Usually, Momma scolds me, for doing this. she bips me on the nose (not very hard, though!) and says "NO"!
That's all, for now...
Its so beautiful to "nothing", and rest afterward!!
Oh Goody! I am very excited, because this evening, Momma Carol took the door down from the bathroom, and installed it at the entrance to her bedroom.
This is very exciting, because now, she can shut-out Smudge, from the bedroom, and I can "have a life", instead of having to eat-sleep-poop-play, on the top shelf of the bedroom closet.
You see, ever since Smudge had her litter, 2 years ago, she has been very "protective" of Uno, who is her "Baby"... She beat me up, pretty badly, and I am very frightened of her.
I have been extremely frustrated, and have taken to scratching at the corner of the closet wall, and this gets splinters in my feet, and also, I never get the chance to "cuddle" with Momma, any more...
So tonight, I will get to sleep with Momma, and play with my best friend, Moochy
Thank You, Momma!
I am one very happy Kitty, because finally, Murphy's Mommy took him back from here! No more being harassed all night by the black Kitty!!
I got to play all night, once Momma put Smudge into the bathroom, for the night! I played with Moochy and Uno, and bounced all over the bed with them, and kept Momma awake, all night!!!
Don't get me wrong, I hope Murphy is happy, being back with his Mommy, and Momma Carol says "its about time"!!! She has been fostering him for about 8 months, now... So its just the 4 of us, now, and Momma still feeds the two feral kittens, and the two Tom Cats...
