Gotcha Date:

Black and White

He LOVES to lay in the sun, and he loves to sleep in my dog's crate when she's not in it.

He is not fond of the dog, even though they've lived together for 2 years. And he doesn't like his belly rubbed.

Favorite Toy:
He loves Cat Dancers, anything with cat nip, and really anything that he can chase and pounce on. Or hide in. He loves paper bags and milk rings.

Favorite Nap Spot:
There are several that are his favorite. He loves to lay in the sun, wherever that may be. Curled up on the couch, under my bed, in my dresser (the cats can open the drawers), on my bed, or in his kitty bed on a big ledge in my loft apt.

Favorite Food:
He loves Nutro Natural Choice Complete Care food. And the dog's wet food.

He is very good at "high fives."


Arrival Story:
I decided to get a second cat as a companion for a cat I already had. My sister had a friend who had a litter of kittens on her farm. They were going to remain outdoor kitties, so my sister picked him out and brought him to me. She even named him.

Obi is the boss of the house. While he does whatever he wants, he is a VERY well-behaved kitty. He doesn't get into any trouble and doesn't destroy anything. He does know how to work the crowd for treats though.

A Day in the Life of a Guard Kitty

A Day Free Without the Pooch

Greetings everyone!!! Yesterday my mommy took the dog to daycare. My sister Mia and I had the house to ourselves. It was glorious. Unfortunately the dog came back. But, that's ok. She was exhausted, so I was able to cuddle with my mommy while the doggie napped.

Mia and I had a ton of fun sleeping in the dog's crate, laying in the sun, and of course sleeping on mommy's bed. We always do that when she goes to work. It's the only time we can do it without the dog wanting to sniff our butts or try to play. I really don't like it when she tries to play. I wish she would just leave me alone. But, alas, it doesn't happen.

I am starting to be a little more tolerant of the pooch. It depends on what kind of day I'm having, and how energetic the dog is that day. I used to hiss if she just looked at me. Now, it's only if she tries to come close and sniff me. Which isn't too often since I used to slap her all the time. Now she's afraid of my fighting prowess. :)

On the other hand, my sister Mia is a traitor. She walks right up to the dog and will sniff her, and let the dog sniff her butt. She only gets upset if the dog sniffs too long. Otherwise, she walks all over the bed while the dog is up there, and cuddles with mommy. Mom says she's braver than I am. But come on! It's just that Mia isn't as cautious as I am. Hello, she's the one that constantly tries to escape. She's totally an adrenaline junkie.

I should go back to the bed to get maximum nap time in before mommy comes home again.

I've never kept a diary before, but I thought others might like to know what life is like for a guard kitty. Oh sure, I have a dog and everyone thinks that dogs are good guard animals. But that thing just cuddles with my mommy all the time. She doesn't lay in front of the door, or hide in the crate to listen for intruders. And my kitty sister is more interested in chasing bugs, opening stuff, and plotting her escape than in guarding.

However, there is one time of day that I don't lay in front of the door. And that is when mommy is gone and the dog is in her crate. Only then do I have full access to the big comfy bed. When mommy is home, she and the dog lie in there, and I don't like the dog too much. So, when no one is there, I go upstairs and crawl into the bed and curl up. I like to sleep under the covers, or make a little nest on top of them. I figure, the dog's crate is right by the front door, she can do her dog duty and guard the house while I enjoy the comfort that is my mommy's bed.

Now, don't let all this talk of guarding fool you. I have my napping spots. It's just that most of them allow me to keep an eye on the front door or porch door at all times. And one of my favorite spots is up high so I can watch everything.

Now, I need to go resume my nap. I'll keep you updated, and will try to expand my topics a little more. Purrs & Meows!!!!
