Cuddles and snuggles!
One of the shakey mice or the fish/feather on the stick...oooh and crinkle balls!
Favorite Nap Spot:
Mummy's bed or under the radiator.
Speaking....says things such as "Let me out";"Hello";"Dinner please";"I love you!"
indoors and outdoors
Gizzy came to us when he was 6 months old as a birthday present for me. We went to the rescue centre and there were all these gorgeous little fluffball kittens. But then I saw the little, scaredy tabby cat (who had very big ears which he later grew in to!) I was told that he wouldn't come out but, low and behold, out he came all purrs. Apparently he had never done it before! I went to chose a kitten...but a cuddly Mobius chose me!
Gizzy was a rescue cat. His mum lived outside and was very poorly treated, she had already had a large number of litters. Gizzy and his sister were the only two from that litter and they were rescued at around 5-6 months. He had been left outside and kicked around and so suffers a lot with nerves. He has been through so much and is still scared of visitors but it made me so proud when I saw him sitting on my boyfriend's knee, especially as he has always hated men. He's such a brave little cat.
A couple of years ago he was diagnosed with FUS (Feline Urologic Syndrome) and we had a scare a couple of weeks ago when his bladder was blocked. But Gizzy is such a little fighter - he's scared me so many times when I thought I was going to lose my lil Squidge and I love him so much. He is a slightly hefty little thing though, which doesn't help his condition but I've seen him improve so much over the years that I can't help but be proud of him.
Gizzy is such a wonderful little cat, I wish people were able to get to know him for the amazing personality that he is, but some people even deny he exists because he won't come out to see visitors. I've never met such a loving cat though, we have such an amazing bond and I can't imagine ever being without him. He's always there when I need a cuddle and I'm always there when he's feeling down. He knows me so well and sometimes I'm amazed at how intelligent he is, especially compared to Max (bless her!).
He is, quite frankly, the most wonderful cat in the world....(as I often am reminded when he flomps onto my bed in the morning!) Quite frankly he is one of my bestest friends and I love my MobiusGiz so much!

OMC! I am sooo glad to be back. Mummy came running downstairs the other day all excited because the puter is fixed at last and CATSTER IS BACK! Well... to be honest, Catster didn't go anywhere... we did... but THAT is not the point MOL!
So... to start with the most important news! I AM STARVING!
My food is in the cupboard, but will they give it to me? Oh no.
Instead they boil me a fish! I don't want a fish... I guess I should explain!
About a week ago, after eating my VERY yummy dinner (*sigh* the good old days!) I had a little accident... that is to say I.. *ahem* I was sick *blushes* Now... I'm not one to fuss but I'm not USUALLY a sicky cat. Of course, any of you who know my mum are aware that she IS one to fuss... so this got me the spy treatment! To cut an EXTREMELY long story short, I was still being sick a few days later so they stuffed me in that basket (except it's a different one!!) and dragged me down to that AWFUL place... oh yes guys... they took me to the V-E-T!
Well... Mr V-E-T told mummy I was actually a very healthy lad! (Here mum wants to point out his comments about my belly but I think we can save them for another day!) However, he thinks I have a food intolerance! Yes... he thinks I am intolerant towards my food! Well, I'll have him now that I am VERY tolerant to it... in fact I cater to it's every need before I gobbled it up! Mummy later explained that what he meant was... the food upset my belly. Oh, yes... they study for years and years and then they tell you something you could have guessed from me depositing it back on the carpet!!
Well... I was ordered to be given only boiled fish.
I don't like boiled fish.
So now I live on biscuits. Oh, very healthy! It's not like mummy isn't feeding me... and when she tried giving me a bit of real dinner.. it came back... Guys, HELP! I am S-T-A-R-V-I-N-G! If anycat has any advice at all we would be sooo grateful to hear it! After all, I reckon you guys and your mums probably have a bit more sense than Mr-Boil-Him-Some-Fish!
Mummy is also worried about my big sis... She's old, you see. REAL old... 21 in fact! But she's starting to look bad... Well, I say LOOK bad... she's just a mess! Pfft... she said I shouldn't talk about her... she said SHE'LL do it herself.. *wags tail at mummy* She's already in my bad books... she wants to watch her step!
On the up side... we have mice! Mum says this ISN'T an upside... but I think it's great...
And after all, if there's no decent food on offer indoors I can just go grab myself a takeaway...
Purrs to ALL of you! Missed you guys soooo much!

Wowzers... talk about going AWOL!
I mean - geez, how long have we been gone? I close my eyes for a nap and next thing I know mummy's broken Catster! Uh-uh! She BROKE my Catster! *ahem* What I mean is - there was a technical fault on our catputer that was absolutely nothing to do with mum! (Come on guys - I NEED my dinner tonight!)
Luckily, I have the wonderful Miss Queenie and the gang - who wrote to Catster and then we were able to get back on track! Thank you Auntie Carli! We looooves you!
Speaking of the gang - I mean, guys, I haven't been gone that long but... well... I was pretty sure last time I checked there were 4 kittens living at Queenie's house... But mum got an email the other day and... what did I see? A picture of a cat who I was sure I'd never seen before! I stared at the screen in total befuddlement! To be honest I was a little annoyed - this new cat was VERY handsome indeed! AND he had MY name... what was this! Mummy laughed - she sat me down and told me who it was - no way was I going to believe it. Captain Gizmo?? But... he's all grown up! And yes, the other 3 are too! We remember the day they were born - how excited we were and wowzers, if you haven't seen them for a while - go see NOW! Look at them - yes, they WERE the most beautiful kittens I ever did see but... well, now they're quite possibly even more gorgeous. I do believe that out in South Africa we have one of the finest cat-families in the world. Not only the beautiful Queenie and the wonderful 'kits' but also that stunning Miss Rosie (how much she's changed from the young lady that arrived!), the wonderful Snowy AND the super Toby! Saying that - even the angels in SA are amazing - the rainbow bridge's finest I'm sure!
Well! You may have guess that I missed that lot! MOL!
BUT I need to apologise LOTS to my wonderful angel-brother Wally and his lovely brothers Alfie and Teddy! Guys, I am sooo sorry. I know it's been really hard to get hold of you - but we really have tried our best. Speaking of kits growing up - look at my NEPHEW Teddy! Talk about a handsome young man! You're doing Wally and me very proud dude!
Auntie Eva also wrote to Catster for us! THANK YOU! We love you very much and mum's sorry she hasn't been around.
I can sure count myself lucky... another of the finest families - right over there in Canada!
*Thinks looong and hard*
I've also missed my beautiful Dusty. I have a feeling she may have moved on - and what can I say - I can't blame her. AWOL for so long :( Dusty, I want you to know that you are the shining star of Catster - the most beautiful girl in the world. Officially. And I am so sorry for being gone. I hope you're happy and that you can furgive me and we can still be furriends!
Geez! So many cats! How can I furget my brother Captain! My dude! I've missed you! I've missed the garden and being turned into the terrifying Gizbear MOL!
And you know, that's another two amazing families - sitting right there in America. Geez, all of you - when will you get the message! Get your paws moving and come over here to see us. Ok, England is cold, wet, miserable, depressing... meh... BUT we're here! MOL!
Yep... you guessed it! I missed looots of cats! Lastly I want to send out a huuuuge purr to the wonderful gang at **TWT** - sorry I've been an awful admin - what a wonderful job everycat's done with the group. I love you all!
Now, I have all that out of my system I think it's time for a nap... but this time I'm sleeping on the catputer chair... I don't trust that mum with Catster anymore....

Today mum woke me up, rubbing something wet on me. I was annoyed at first, then I realised it was her face. What? My mum was crying??
She told me something that shocked me and devastated me so much it has taken me over 12 hours to be able to write this.
Last night, my first ever brother - my wonderful, brave Wally, left us to make his journey to the bridge.
I really can't find the words and I'm afraid I won't do him justice, but some things need to be said.
Wally was one of the first friends I made on Catster. It's thanks to him that my mum has found a very special friend, his mum. They've helped us through a lot and I really cannot express how grateful we are and how much they mean to us.
I knew my little brother wasn't well - but nothing could prepare us for this.
Although we've never truely met them, we know Wally was one of a kind. He loved his mum sooo much - you know, he used to hug her, with his paws around her neck? That's love.
I'm glad that Wally doesn't have to suffer any more. No cat deserves that, and knowing what a special guy he is, I can imagine the hero's welcome he'll be getting up at the bridge.
Wally - I can't say I'm going to miss you because you're always going to be in mine and mum's hearts. We love you very much and we know you're one handsome angel! Watch over your mum and your lovely bro, they need you more than ever now. Thank you for everything - for being a wonderful Catster brother and for introducing our mums!
Auntie Eva - We love you. That's something everyone needs to know. We're always going to be here for you. We know things haven't been too great but you're a wonderful, brave person and - well - there are one or two Catster mum's who'd be lost without you, I know that for sure.
I am so sad tonight, but I need all my friends to know I love them. It's not until something like this happens that you realise what a fragile thing life is. Captain & Scout; Queenie and the gang; Dusty & ALL of you; Wally & Alfie - every SINGLE one of my Catster buds - we love you more than you know. Thank you.
The Giz and mum xx
