Arrival Story:
I saw a notice at my chiropractor's that a cat needed a home. Our cat had passed away the year before, so we were open to getting a new one. We attended a showing of My Fair Lady at the Alex the day she came to stay, and with her slender elegant looks, and her chic black and white wardrobe, she reminded us of Audrey Hepburn in the movie. So we called her Eliza Doolittle.

Bio:
Eliza was an independent girl for years. She slept in the tool shed or under the house. She ate the food we put out, and let us know when she wanted more, but otherwise wanted nothing to do with us. She was very difficult to catch so getting her to the vet for shots was almost impossible. She had been known to disappear for weeks at a time. Then the Station fire came. I heard the order to prepare to evacuate and I managed to catch Eliza and put her in her kennel. Then as the helicopters battled the blaze we waited. I put Eliza in the guest bedroom and got her a new litter box. Since then, she has become an inside cat and has warmed up to us. She now demands equal time petting and brushing her coat. She is much happier inside, and we enjoy her company.

Happy Birthday to Me

Since my people do not know my birthday, they have chosen this day to commemorate it since it is very close to the anniversary of my moving into this home, Saturday, July 24, 2004. Can it be three years? Seems like just yesterday.
They feed me regularly, and always give me more when I ask for some, so I stick around. A few days ago I even let one of the humans pet me. I like being scratched gently right in front of my tail or under my chin. However, that's enough. I have more pressing things to do...

 

I'm having one of my moods

I am not a friendly cat. I do not respond to "Here, Kitty Kitty." I prefer not to.
Last week my human took me to the vet. I bore the ordeal with great dignity. I do not scratch or bite or fuss. I burn. I resent being put into a plastic cage and transported away from my home. I bear with stoicism the poking and prodding that the Vet calls an exam. I quietly endure the nose drops, flea treatment and shots. Good thing it only happens once a year.
I thought about hiding for weeks after we returned, like I did last year. But the human has taken to giving me special kitty treats. I crave them, so I have decided to forgive more easily this year. But you can see from my face that I do not like it.

-----

One note: Last year I had a bad run in with some motor oil. I went to my human and meowed until she took me inside and bathed me in the sink, removing the grease and restoring my fur to it's usual pristine whiteness. Fortunetly I do not need this kind of help on a regular basis, but it is good to know I have my human under my paw whenever I have a special need.
