Arrival Story:
My mommy Judy wanted to help a friend, Amy, who was breeding Silver Shaded American Shorthairs to go to college. Mommy Judy wanted me before I was even conceived! Mommy Judy was present the day I was born, the day of a lunar eclipse, so that became part of my name. Lunar Eclipse was also my grandfather's name, and he was a Champion. My first human mommy was Amy, she was very nice to me, and I was the first of my four brothers to leave for my furrever home. Mommy Amy cried and kissed me goodbye. I was very quiet on the way to my furrever home, and I was a little scared too. Mommy Judy was around me from the day I was born, and she helped hand-raise me with my brothers. My new home was scary, but I knew Mommy Judy, so I hid for several hours under her recliner where I could watch my new home and still be near M0mmy Judy. I was put in the kitchen by myself for my first night, and I cried a lot. Daddy Dan went to find me in the morning, and I had gone to hide behind the refrigerator, where it was warm. When I heard Daddy call for me, I came out from behind the refrigerator with a big smile and my tail waving and hitting things. That's when I got the name Boom Bottom. Daddy thought I was very cute when I came out to greet him in the morning, and I nudged his hands a lot because I was so happy to see someone again!

Hermes is a loving kitty, he has learned to play fetch from his older sister, Tansey. He was a little hesitant to be very affectionate, but now that's he's three, he has blossomed into a very sweet personality. He is very good, he's not a naughty cat very much at all. Although he does like to pull my little orchid plants out of their pots from time to time, he never eats them, never poops where he should not (although he gets travellers on his butt from time to time), loves his dry food, and cuddles with Mommy almost every night, purring and drooling and kneading his little paws. He never stays more than fifteen minutes on me, sometimes a little longer if he's really grooving on the love.

Ten years old! I can hardly believe it. I don't feel ten most of the time. My sisfurs Luna and Willow keep me on my toes. They're always hanging around me, they walk with me everywhere. I can't walk to the food bowl without one of them coming with me! I've taught them how to find the good napping spots, and they're teaching me to play a little more often. I kinda like playing with string, but I don't do the Fetch thing. That's for the young ones.

Dear Diary,

I am now SEVEN years old! I've had a pretty good year, except for my excursion outside, where I met some not-so-nice kitties who shared FLEAS with me! I found out I am allergic to FLEAS so mom and dad had to take me to the VET to help me stop itching.

I caught my VERY FIRST MOUSIE on my last day as a six-year-old. Now I am a real grown up Mighty Hunter! I wasn't quite sure what to do with mousie, but dad knew... he put it in a box and took it outside. I kept looking for mousie but it didn't come back. I looked and looked in the kitchen.

And I had a 25-hour birthday! WOW, what cat would be so lucky to have an extra hour to nap! ME!! I made sure I used my extra hour wisely with a quality nap in the sunlight at the back window on the top of my kitty condo. Life is pretty good for me.

I also want to say 'Thank You' to the Catster kitties and doggies who sent my birthday wishes and gifts. It's nice to be part of such a wonderful big family. I especially am thankful for my bfofur-in-law Smoke. He is married to my sisfur Tansey. Smoke became an Angel this year, but as an Earth Angel he comes back often to visit and watch over us. Tansey loves him very much and she was very sad when Smoke left for the bridge. She is much happier now that Angel Smoke can come to visit and watch their daughter Smokey grow up. I love my sisfur too, but what she and Smoke have is special and I am happy for them, so I wanted to talk about them on my special birthday.

Talk with you again soon, Diary,

Hermes Lunar Eclipse
