Playing with Da Bird toy or red rope. Racing up the stairs to the top of his cat tree.
Humans who put the bird toy out of reach
duh, Da Bird toy!!!
Favorite Nap Spot:
Mom or Dad's chest, right under their chin. Or the heated kitty bed.
Fancy Feast dry
Mid-air backflips, touching all for feet together in the air and landing with the bird in my mouth!
indoors and outdoors
Sid was found across the street from our shelter as a 7 week old baby crying and alone. He cried so much that they named him Screech. He even cried while he ate! He lived in the shelter's cat bus until he was 7 months old and I came looking for a black cat that would get along with my older cats, and maybe even a snuggle buddy for 15 year old sixteen pound Bear. I'd looked at several older cats, not thinking I was interested in a kitten. Then Sid came up wanting me to pick him up. He settled in, started purring and didn't want to go. I had to take him!
Sid is one beautiful boy and as he's grown up he's started to fill out. His fur looks brown in the sun and he has 3 little white hairs on his neck. Sid thinks he's the boss of the house, but he's really lowest of the four. He likes Bear and loves to play/fight with Pete. He loves to play and does really well when we have company. He walks with a swish and is really, really beautiful (but not exactly a rocket scientist), hence his nickname.
Since I wrote the original bio, Sid has really grown up. He actually is a rocket scientist, or as close as a cat can come. He was first to figure out how to open doors and taught Pete. He is very good at getting what he wants. He's no dummy. He still talks if I do things wrong, like pet him when he doesn't want me to, and if I'm too annoying, he'll swat me (claws in) but rarely. He knows that mom thinks its okay to be on counters but dad says "NO SID". He's extremely fast, maybe faster than John was, and runs everywhere. His eyes are always wide open, you might call that "the alert look" and he's watching everything. He team hunts squirrels with Pete, Pete has the tree climbing skills, Sid has the speed. I tie strings all over the house for him to play with. He loves to wad up towels and blankies and has a different take on the uses for a Hazel Lucy blankie. He has the same body shape as Bear, but smaller and darker. When he wants loves, he climbs up under our chin on our chest and curls up to nurse himself. He's a sweetie.
Update: November 2011: Sid is a great cat but as time passes it turns out that he just doesn't like other kitties. We're very sorry because we love Sid so much and he's the best lap cat ever. Hopefully we can find a nice home with a family that will play with him and keep him as active as ever and will let him be the only pet, King Sid, as he would like to be.

You may not know this, but I'm up for adoption. As much as I've loved my current home and the humans who live there, I really don't much like my kitty siblings very much. Things were under control while Bear was alive to keep me under his paw but now that he's gone I think that I should be Primary Cat and under my rule I should also be the Only Cat. Seem's fair to me.
While Sarah & Pete can handle me most of the time and they can defend themselves, they are quite stressed and this bothers mom. Ceci can't defend herself at all against me and while I thoroughly enjoy trapping her in the bedroom and chasing her off our land, Mom is quite distressed by this. It seems that Ceci starting to nurse Sarah at 2 years old and me ripping fur out of her isn't a desirable situation. Who knew? I'm not really very happy either. I want humans all to myself and I've taken to growling at cats who come near when I'm basking in my glory on their laps. I'm not a bad kitty, I just think I should be the Only Kitty.
Mom has started to look for the perfect family to adopt me and make me the King Cat that I deserve to be. She's very picky about them, they have to love me and take good care of me and she's looking for a nice family that will play with me since I love to play! They also have to like snuggling with me and like having a soft purring lap kitty sitting on them. I play hard but I sure love my down time, too. Mom's promised that I'll be able to take my heated kitty bed with me and she'll even send my 8' tall cat tree if my new humans have room for it. If they don't they will need some kind of scratching setup for me as I love to scratch my tree!!! (but never furniture!)
Monday I went on a Meet & Greet and met the most adorable boys, William and Collin, and I loved them! William is the oldest and I would be his kitty. Oh Boy! He likes to pet me and tried to play with me, too, but I was a little nervous during the visit. It was my first car ride since I was a kitten and I've never been in any other house, either! Mom said I did a great job. I played Hide & Seek with Collin and snuggled on the sofa with William and his Mom reading all about myself on Catster and admiring my photos. I'm sure a beautiful cat!!! I could look at me forever!
Anyway, William's dad is allergic to certain cats so I was visiting to see if I was a cat he would react to. I hope I'm safe, but I'll understand if I'm not. They were really nice people, they have a great house, and I think I could like William's mom as much as mine, but I wouldn't want them to be sick because of me. Whatever the outcome, now I have two boys that will always be my friend, and maybe they will come visit me sometime!
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! Erika is catsitting us and I love that because I'll get her all to myself while the other cats are nervous! Yippee!!!

Please check out Benson. He's listed as one of my siblings though he's staying at a vet hospital in Lewiston, Idaho. He's a nice kitty that mom & Marion met yesterday. He's been living in a loving home and needs a new one.

Hello all our dear furriends,
First we want to thank Edgar for bringing this problem to our attention. Thank goodness he assumed there was a glitch at headquarters instead of something worse!!
Mom likes the comment on diaries feature, but asked headquarters if there was a way to see comments left from the home page so that she didn't have to go back and look at our diary entries to find them. She loves catster, but this all can take a lot of time, I'm sure you know.
Headquarters wrote back telling mom to change her preferences so that our diary comments had to be approved by her. That way she would always get to read them. That sounded good, so mom did that. Suddenly we stopped getting comments! Since we haven't been getting very many pawmails either mom guessed that maybe our furiends were busy as well and weren't leaving any. But just in case, mom changed our preferences back to automatically posting a week or so ago.
Today Edgar wrote and told us that he'd tried to leave comments several times. Each time he'd gotten a message saying mom had to approve the comment, but the comment never ever appeared on our diary page. Oh no!! We never got those emails!! We want Edgar's comments and all of yours, too! We have nice furiends, we know you would never say anything that would hurt our feelings.
We sent another message to headquarters today. Of course we haven't heard back yet, but we did want to let our furiends know we love them all and we hope we didn't accidentally hurt your feelings. If you've figured out any good ways for managing those diary comments we'd like to know them!
Purrs, the Freuden Cats
