Gray and White
Catnip, being the center of attention, snuggling in my lap, watching birds outside, lying in the kitchen or bathroom sink, drinking water from the faucet
Not being the center of attention, being picked up, me working on the computer, the vacuum, dirty litter box, stale water (i.e., more than two hours old)
Catnip banana, paper wads, any paper sack or cardboard box
Favorite Nap Spot:
My lap, laundry basket, the closet
Purina DM canned food, Whiskas cat treats, almost any kind of fish (as an occasional treat)
Supervising household chores such as dishwashing and making the bed, swiping away anything in the path of his tail, just being adorable
I adopted Felix in January 2000 from the Denton (Texas) Humane Society when he was about nine weeks old. He was one of a litter of three kittens at a DHS foster home.
Felix's original name (apparently given him at his foster home) was Earl, but that didn't fit, so I named him after one of my favorite cartoon characters, and it just seemed to suit his personality. Felix is an affectionate, good-natured kitty who loves people and attention. One of his favorite spots is my lap. He is also very inquisitive and has to thoroughly investigate and sniff out anything or anyone new. He uses his nose almost as much as a dog. Felix is also a veteran traveler. He almost always comes with me when I make the 3 ½ hour trip to my mother's house (in his carrier, of course). He loves Grandma's house - there's lots of room to play, more places to sleep and more attention. It's his second home. Felix was diagnosed with diabetes in June 2010, but thanks to a change to a 100% canned food diet he is now in remission and doing great.
Update: Felix was diagnosed with lung cancer on October 12, 2012. The cancer had spread too much for chemo or other treatment to be of any real help. I made the painful decision to help him to the Bridge rather than put him through the stress of any further treatments or medication. Felix made his peaceful journey to the Bridge on October 15, 2012. I'll see you again one day, my sweet boy.

It's been exactly one year since I made my journey to the Rainbow Bridge. It's hard for Mom to believe it's been that long. It was an especially painful day, because my diagnosis was so unexpected. She still misses me so much, but her memories of me give her comfort and she can talk about me now and smile. She knows I'm happy and healthy here at the Bridge and that we'll meet again one day.
Mom has Coco now, who I sent to her when she was ready to love another kitty. Coco has been a joy and makes sure there's never a dull moment. MOL!
Mom and I both want to thank everyone who remembered me today with rosettes, gifts, and messages. We appreciate your thoughtfulness and kind words. Mom will send individual thank-yous as soon as she can. Love you all and God bless.

Thank you so much for the DDP honor yesterday, Catster, and thank you to my Catster friends for the rosettes, gifts, and congrats. Mom and I appreciate all of you remembering us at this difficult time.

Felix passed peacefully to the Rainbow Bridge today, October 15, 2012, at 11:30 a.m. Central Time. He is healthy and happy again.
Thank you all for your prayers, gifts, messages, and tributes to my sweet boy. They mean more to me than you'll ever know. I know that along with Critter, there were many "fur angels" who met him at Bridge, and I know I'll see him and Critter again one day.
I will try to respond individually to all of you who sent pawmails, diary comments, and rosettes/gifts, although it may take some time as I am not yet up to spending a lot of time on Catster for a little while.
God bless you all-
