Arrival Story:
In August 2006 I moved from a small 1-bedroom apartment to a larger townhome. By the end of the month I had settled in and decided it was time to adopt a pair of cats. I visited PetSmart because I heard The Almost Home Foundation had adoption drives on Saturdays. I knew I wanted a cat, not a kitten. Cats don't need to be trained, their personalities have developed, and they are more relaxed. Most importantly I wanted to give a cat a second chance to have a home. I arrived when people were setting up. I had already decided to adopt Sarge. Since he was declawed, his cat-sibling also needed to be declawed. Lena was the only other declawed cat there. Originally she was a stray and was adopted by a couple who were going to have a baby. But when she was one year old she had to be returned because the new child was very allergic to cats. Even if there were other choices, I knew I had to bring her home too.

Hello! My name is Lena. I love to play. I can jump over four feet along a wall to swat at the red light bug. Daddy says I am The Great Tabby Hunter, well I would be if I still had my front claws. I'm smart enough to stay inside unlike my big step-brother Sarge, but I will sometimes follow him into the garage. I love being brushed and I demand Daddy get down on the floor to brush me several times a day. I like being held but not to be petted, but to sleep. When Daddy lies down I will sometimes jump on top of him to make biscuits or take a nap. I'm so happy I have a furever home with him. When his friends come over, I just stay in the back. I'm a one-person kitty. Gotta go now, the evil chipmunk is outside!

Vet Visit

Well after being gone last weekend due to work, Dad had the day off and what did he do? He took us to the vet! The good news is that I'm in good health. The bad news... well you saw my profile, I'm officially down to 7lbs. Now Dad and the vet are getting worried. I'm small but this is too little for me. Plus I have to go back to get my teeth cleaned. They'll do some blood work then to see if there's something medically wrong. In the mean time Dad is going to try and get me to eat more. Would I feel like I'm being punished if Dad put me in a room by myself with some gushy food for a while to encourage me to eat?


I love Daddy!

Daddy had his friends over yesterday. I let them pet me but they knew whose kitty I was when I jumped into Daddy's lap, climbed up to his shoulder, and began grooming him. Everyone laughed while I did it. I got some holding time too. I love to be held while I sleep. Daddy thinks I miss Sarge and Pepi isn't as much fun to nap with. I've been asking for more attention lately. Maybe it's because I'm getting older. I have my annual check up in a few weeks so Daddy will ask about it then.

We've all heard the news by now that Caster will keep going for a while and we're happy about that. We're still saving our pages just in case. Dad still expects a site redesign in the future. Anyway the real reason I haven't written much in my diary is because not much has happened to me. I still sleep with Dad when I get the chance and play with the foam ball he tosses up the stairs for me. Live is good but we wish things would warm up soon.
