"This is me, waiting for my teeth to be brushed. I wiggle too much so Mommy turns me into a burrito kitty.
One reason mommy Loves this picture is that my eyes look normal and are not squinted shut or "alien green"."
Likes: Playing with my mice and sleeping with her human. Also loves to sit on the desk while her human works. Sometimes getting in the way. Often being a reassuring calming force during the work hours.
Pet-Peeves: Running water , baths, getting yelled at for agressive play with Whispers (or now with Misty)
Favorite Toy: Any of my mice, but mainly the Catnip filled "KittyHooch" mouse from Oregon, KittyHooch "Super Bird", Lazer lights
Favorite Nap Spot: Sleeping on my human slave's pillow, or better yet on her face, Under the christmas tree, In a window
Favorite Food: Ex nutro and Science diet kitty. She used to be on Sci Diet hairball light but is now trying Blue Buffalo Spa for the dry. Currently on the search for a healthy Canned food that she will eat.
Skills: Jumping really high, catching goldfish, purring all day long, opening my human's bedroom door, Clicking the computer mouse buttons with my tail.
Arrival Story: I worked at a petshop where we somtimes had kittens that were rescued. We adopted them out for under $10. One week we had a litter of beutiful babies come in, and thats when I found my AnnaBelle. She was an itty bitty calico, about the size of my palm. She enjoyed ridding around on my shoulder while I was working. She chose me to live with becuase she did not like other people handling her very much. I fell in love with her and brought her to a forever home with me.
Bio: We now live in Austin with Whisper's owner Jmatt. AnnaBelle and Whispers learned how to get along, most of the time. AnnaBelle misses Whispers at times as we all do. She now is getting to know Misty who is Jmatt's new kitty that we think Whispers sent to us. AnnaBelle Celebrates her birthday on May 12th.
In 2010 I was asked to host the 2010 Halloween costume contest. We had a big Pawrty and every-fur from the LLS and football threads joined in.
I am also hosting a Christmas 2010 costume contest in the LLS and football threads.
Thank you all for the birthday wishes and gifties! Mommy and I are choosing to believe that 7 is really just 'middle aged' at this point. Because I don't show any signs of getting the olds. MOL! Mommy also says thankyou to everyfur for the happy Mom's day wishes and gifties too.
Happy Mother's day to all the furred and non furred mommies out there! Our human mommys do so much for us- painstakingly checking and rechecking (and rechecking) that the food they are feeding us is the best for us, making sure we have the best water sources available and scooping our poo too! Mommies of human babies get away with only having to deal with the poos of thier kiddos for maybe 5 years (usually after that the kid can handle it themselves) But for kitty mommies - our poo is thiers to deal with forever. So thank you to all the kitty mommies for dealing with our poo! (Or should I say Newmies? All the old school Catsters know what that referances!)
Today is a very special day. Today one of my Humans - Jmatt - has a birthday. He is 30! Which the humans tell me is OLD. He is away traveling to visit some of his other friends so I wont get to tell him in purrson happy birthday until tomorrow. But he is very special to me and I promise not to leave him a 'present' on his stuff. *MOL*
But in fur serious news- I am now what the vets call a SENIOR kitty. Today I turn the big SEVEN years old! I dont think its fair that they call us seniors at 7 years old, do you? My mommy says shes not cutting me any slack and not gonna treat me like a senior. After all, I still run and get the zoomies like when I was a little kitten. Mommy has had me since I fit in the palm of her hand at just mere weeks old. She says to me, "I cant believe my baby is now 7!"
Money is tight so theres no special prezzies this year, which makes mommy sad because this would be a special year to celebrate. But shes going to pull out some of my favorite treats later and I think we have wet food for dinner tonight. Ill probably decide to be picky and not eat it. MOL.
Im SEVEN, Im OLD!!! EEEEEK!
Just gives me more reason to enjoy my favorate past times- laying on my back- laying on my side- snoozing on mommy's pillows- and bopping Misty on the head!
Both mommy and Jmatt lost their jobs in the past week. Mommy has no money coming in this month at all. Shes pretty sure we have enough food and hopefully enough litter for the rest of may. After that, shes not so sure. But food and litter will be the least of our worries if she cant find income to pay rent. She has one job prospect that dosnt start until the second half of the month and will only be for 6 days of the month and is dependent on good weather. .. even with that shes still short over half. Oh and this is the month that I normally have to go to the vet for checkups and vaccines. That will have to wait. Mommy and Jmatt both have interviews for another job tomorrow, but it dosnt start until sometime in June. So while its good...Its not so great. Mommy keeps apologizing to me for being a failure. I keep giving her headboops and purring and saying it will be OK. So good vibes and purrs and such are greatly needed here. Somehow it will all work out, I know it will.
