Likes: Catnip, digging at the sunlight through the window blinds, playing with my doggy sister Mia, playing staring games with people, watching the toilet flush, WATER!!
Pet-Peeves: Being moved when I'm sleeping! When I have to come in from playing out on the patio.
Favorite Toy: My catnip mouse, Mia, the feather boa cat chaser, the Christmas Tree!!
Favorite Nap Spot: In the sunlight, on the new futon, the dining room table, under the Christmas Tree
Favorite Food: I eat Wellness Complete Health dry and Merrick or Wellness canned (when I feel like it). "She" says I have to start eating canned food so I don't get UTIs but I don't like it much.
Skills: E-Man is learning to play the piano!
Arrival Story: We are adopting this little guy at the end of June. My boyfriend's Mom adopted him in December and they are now moving to a new apartment where they cannot keep him. Rather than seeing him go back to the shelter we decided to adopt him!
Bio: E-Man is the funniest cat. He loves to play box with our Chihuahua Mia and taunts her so she will chase him. He also paws at the sunlight that shines through the blinds. He loves to play and play nips all the time.
Just wanted to post a quick update. I'll do a full recount of the last 4 days later on. Everyone and animal is fine. The house and apartment survived with almost no damage, no flooding. The wooden fences are all down. Luckily we have a little courtyard area between our garage and the side of the house and a metal gate that closes off the backyard. Mia can get through the metal gate poles because they are about 8 inches wide but we put up leftover plywood so we can at least let the dogs out there.
We are playing host to a stray boxer puppy that we have named Roscoe for the time being. He is very sweet and gets along well with everyone. Mia doesn't like him but she doesn't like most other dogs at first anyway.
I will post pictures of the damage, etc. later. We have power and cable and internet here at the house. No power at the apartment yet though. We are hoping soon.
We are about to evacuate for Hurricane Ike. We are in a mandatory evacuation zone because we are less than a mile from Galveston Bay. For the time being the plan is to go to Nana and Grandpa's house (they are boarding up the windows as we speak) but we have a hotel room in Austin reserved for Thurs/Fri/Saturday if we feel we really do need to get out of town.
Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers. We will try to keep in touch.
