Arrival Story: Mummy adopted me from Safe Haven for Cats, a no-kill shelter in Raleigh in October 2005. I was very shy and it took a while for me to come out and see her but when I did she knew I was the kitty she was going to adopt. I was so timid when I got to my new home I wouldn't come out from the bed and she read to me for a couple hours a day for a few weeks and I warmed up quickly (and I learned a lot about women in Medieval Europe). My name means "beautiful" in ancient Egyptian. Mummy loves Egypt and I have lots of Bastets to keep me company.
Bio: I'm a Taurus - that may be why I LOVE the beef Temptation Treats *SO* much!
The Female Taurus Cat is instinctive and knowledgeable. She loves beautiful objects and adornments and will welcome any and all gifts with open paws. She always knows exactly what she wants and will become quite stubborn if she doesn't get it. As long as her human stays on her good side and treats her with tender loving care, she will be affectionate and sweet. She's eager to learn about life and will win your heart right away. She wants a human who is sincere and appreciative of her abilities. If her chosen human lives up to her standards, she will always be a loyal and loving companion.
Mummy moved to a new apartment this weekend and *ugh* we had to be shut up in a bedroom and then in a bathroom for HOURS while they moved stuff.
I think I like the place. It has a upstairs loft (our old place didn't) and there's a fantastic little nook under the stairs that is just perfect for kitties. :)
She was getting mightily nervous when I was exploring the ledge for the upstairs. But, eh, I'm a cat and can handle these things... (she is however threatening to buy us "feline high-rise syndrome" insurance now... whatever THAT IS).
I do feel like I'll like this place. All my stuff is here and more importantly, mummy's here and is doting on us (although I dare say there was *something* in that tuna she gave us... I just felt so mellow afterwards, wasn't normal at all!)
Anyway, I hope all my furry friends had a wonderful Christmas! Gotta go, I think mummy is gonna unpack some more and I need to go inspect and make sure she's doing it right.
Yesterday mummy got an email from SAFE Haven for Cats, the no-kill shelter she adopted me from. Their founder, a very sweet lady named Pam Miller, has been nominated as one of Animal Planet's "Cat Heroes of the Year"! If she wins, SAFE Haven would get $5000! WOW! That's a LOT of cans of tuna... Scruffy & I are hoping they win, but really, it's a shame all of 'em can't get $5000 .
I love Cat Heroes - they rock :) They do great things that we can't do for ourselves, and people like Pam & SAFE Haven take us in when we have no where else to live until someone comes along and adopts us and takes us home. I may have been in my furrever home for more than 2 years now but SAFE Haven will always be dear to me.
paw script - the poll's here: http://animal.discovery.com/convergence/hero_of_the_year/pol l/cat-poll.html
You would think that mummy would grasp the concept that she is here to pay attention to me. To provide me with the best food. To lavish me with pets and scritches. To give me tons of treats and scatter cat nip all over the floor. She seems to be falling down on her job.
She was playing that stupid computer game - you know that massive multi-player online role playing game that has the elves, gnomes, dwarfs, humans, trolls, orcs, etc... Well, I had to make her aware that I was in need of attention and kept poking her in the arm...
Now, if she would only stop trying to move me to her right side so she can still get to the keyboard... the arm of the couch is on the left. *rolls eyes* Scruffy sits on her right nursing the pink blanket (which you can see in the new pics I uploaded tonight - sorta).
Of course, I had to prove my point when she stopped playing and be aloof and not let her pet me. These humans *sigh* sometimes they need reminding of who is the top dog, er, cat around these parts!
