I'm getting better every day

December 20th 2007 3:57 am
[ Leave A Comment ]

Hi to all my fur friends on Catster and Dogster.

Last week, a big mean stray Tom bit me when I was out on our front porch. The poor Tom stops by our house every day for food, and while I feel sorry for him, I never want to see him again, so I will stay warm and comfy in my own house from now on.

Anyway, I wanted to let everyone know that I am getting better every day. I'm much stronger this morning, and I've stopped hiding in strange places. I'm still kind of scared of my fur siblings, but I am now able to be in the same room with them without running away and hiding. I'm scheduled to go to the v-e-t tomorrow morning to get the drain pulled out. I can't wait, because that thing is really bothering me now.

Thanks to all my kit and pup friends for the kind wishes and rosies. I will try to return the favor whenever you guys are suffering, which I hope is never.

To all my fur friends -- a safe and healthy holiday season!



Ginger Belle and I are engaged!

I'm the happiest kitty in the world today. That's because the sweetest kitty in the world said Yes! Last night, at the Welcome Waggin Holiday Ball, I asked my sweet Ginger Belle to become my wife. And she accepted! Imagine.... an everyday Tom like me. We'll let all our friends know as the big day draws near. Oh, I'm so excited.

My brother Horus tagged me! He's such a great guy.

Here are the rules....
I have to pick and list 10 fellow members and say a nice thing about them and the cat who tagged me. I then send a pmail to the 10 cats I picked.

Here are the 10 cats:

Horus (because he's my bro!)
Ginger Belle (because she was my date for the big dance and we had so much fun!)
Callie (because she has beautiful cat eyes!)
Fiesty (because she's fun to chat with)
Toonces (because he can drive a car)
Tocca Dolce (because she's so sweet!)
Sampson Silver Dollar (because he's a good neighbor!)
Boudin (because he knows how to party!)
Calvin (because blondes have more fun!)
Amelia (because she's a sweet new angel)

Please visit my friends' pages and leave 'em a treat! They're all such great pals!

Hey efurbody! I want to give a shout-out to Thumper for making me these cool duds to wear at the formal dance at the Wiggles and Giggles Soda Shoppe and Dance Hall on October 13.

Thanks Thumper! I look totally suave and debonaire!

Ladies, please, don't worry... I'm going stag, so you'll have plenty of opportunities to dance with moi. Although, I'm hoping I'll meet my special someone at the dance...

Interested? Check out the Welcome Waggin for Dogsters and Catster group! See ya at the dance!



How I got my name

Lots of cats want to know how I got my name. They ask me, "Do you play soccer, Beckham?" Well the answer to that is no. I play a little brusselball from time to time, but no soccer.

No, the source of my name is much more embarrassing than that.

Before meowmie met me, she had a cat named Lydia. Lydia looked almost exactly like I do... mostly white, with black spots and a black tail. The biggest difference was that Lydia had different-colored eyes, and I don't.

A couple of months after Lydia went to the bridge, her v-e-t told meowmie about a new little kitten. The kitten (me) looked so much like Lydia that the people at the v-e-t office started calling ME Lydia (if you can believe that)! Anyway, I was really small, so they assumed I was a girl, like Lydia was. Meowmie took me home and named me Becky. She said she always wanted a little girl named Becky.

As I got bigger, meowmie still thought I was a girl, and nobody told her otherwise. I tried to tell her, but she was always saying things like, "What a cute little girl you are." Humans! Things went on like that until I developed an eye infection on a Friday evening, after the regular v-e-t office had closed. Meowmie, always worrying about me, took me to the emergency v-e-t. She registered me as "Becky," and kept calling me "she." Finally, the emergency vet told her, "Ma'am, this cat is a MALE!" Meowmie was stunned. She had to start thinking of me in a whole different way. Humans can be so stupid, you know? Apparently, I had a problem where only one of my brusselballs (excuse the expression) was outside my body. The other one was hiding inside me somewhere.

By this point, I knew my name was Becky, so meowmie had to think fast. What's a good male name that sounds like Becky.

The rest is history. And now you know.

My Long-lost Twin

At last I've found you! My twin bro Horus found me on our birthday. I guess you could say we're littermates -- separated at birth. Separated a long, long way at birth, since Horus is in Europe and I live in Maryland. Well, whatever, we're brothers in spirit anyway.

Please visit Horus's page and give him some love!

My big 4th birthday party was so fun thanks to you Catster dudes and dudettes!

Purrs, kneads, and headbutts,


It's My Birthday!

I'm usually a bashful kitty, but today, wow! I feel like a star. So many nice kitties sent me birthday wishes. I want to thank my groups, especially Samoa's Detective Agency, Democats, and I Knead You for spreading the word and making this a special day for me (and my meowmie).

I also want to give a special shout-out to my pals James Tailer, Stipey, Callie, Freddie Mac, Bella, Elmo, Tiger Lily, Russ, Oly, and, of course, Horus. I hope I haven't forgotten anybody!

Also, a huge thank you to group administrators Calvin, Hannah, Rocky Ann, Samoa, and Violet. It's cats like you that make Catster such a fun place!

And finally, I'd like to thank Catster itself for being there and helping to make my birthday so much fun!

Daddy bought us some chicken last night, so my siblings and I will dine well tonight. Thanks to you guys, I also have lots of extra shrimp and steak to share.

OK, cats, the only thing missing is a rousing game of Brusselball! I'll wander over there now and toss the stinky vegetable around for a few minutes.
