Arrival Story: A former Client I was working with had a cat that had kittens. They were searching for a home for Sebastian. I thought I had found someone to take care of him, but that person decided she could not keep him. He then came to live with me, while I tried again to find a home. In the process I fell in love with him. My other cat Shadow passed away shortly after. So he became my cat and helped keep Cleopatra from getting too lonely.
Bio: Sebastian was Diary of the Day on 12/28/08. Thank you for this special honor! Sebastian was COTD on 4/29/09 the day before his 8th birthday!!! Thanks Catster for making this a special birthday for us!
First, our lovely Catster site was taken over by ALIENS who changed all the things we liked about Catster into a huge jumbled up, stinky "litter box" (to borrow Samoa's term). We did not really like the green, but this new one is just gross. It is so hard to find anything through all of the ads from questionable vendors and the "Catster Community" that is literally about to fall off into the deep blue abyss. We can't find our pages without having to jump through several hoops, our backgrounds are all goofed up, and our homepage is not easily accessible. We want to be able to see the COTD/COTW/Diary pick, all of out recent rosettes, and The Cat's Meow! We also liked seeing the new cats that have joined too. One of the reasons we joined Catster Plus was to decrease, or rather eliminate, the tons of ads on our pages. Mom is sooooo disappointed to see that was thrown out the window with the new changes. The only page in our family that even looks half way decent is Shadow's page.
The next bad thing that happened this week is that mom took me to the V-E-T, because of the severity and frequency of my attacks on Cleo! I have lost ANOTHER pound and a half! That means I am down to 8 pounds 12 ounces. They STOLE my blood and wrote nearly TWO PAGES worth of information about me, and my behavior. They may be prescribing Prozac to try to calm me down a bit. It all depends on the results of the blood work. The good news is that my murmur is at a II-III and she said that otherwise I looked like a healthy kitty :). She was very nice (minus the vampire thing)and spent lots of time with mom offering suggestions about what could be done to help ease the tensions at home. The vet seemed impressed about how knowledgeable mom is about our care, how could she expect anything different? Mom asked about grain-free, high protein, low carb wet food and she mentioned some flavors of Fancy Feast and Purina DM (BOO HISS). Mom asked about Evo or Blue Wilderness instead and she acknowledged that was a "very good food". She mentioned Wellness also. The prices were expensive, but not out of the expected. I guess it pays to be informed.....
Thanks Catster for that, but PLEASE BRING BACK OUR FAMILY HOMEPAGE!!!!!!
I just saw where my sister posted that she laughed at my great escape.... I am feeling the need to explain my position.....
You see, we had already been stuffed in our carriers for the fourth day of our journey across country. We had just left our "new house" and I was NOT PLEASED AT ALL! I was tired of traveling, my ears felt oh so funny, and I wanted it all to end, yesterday! As we were driving down the road, nearing Snoqualmie Pass in Washington, mom kept hearing this crashing/banging noise from the back seat. She was planning on stopping at the next exit to find out what the trouble was when she looks into her rear view mirror. Imagine her surprise she saw my gray and white furry face pop up out of nowhere! She asks, "Hello, where did you come from"? Ummm, DUH!
Well, I started to panic. I have never been free to roam inside of a vehicle, especially a moving one. I immediately climbed over the piles in the back seat into mom's lap and ever so desperately tried to get on the floor board under mom's feet! She scruffed my squirming self as she pulled over to the side of the highway (there were not any exits close). Cars and trucks were passing us at 70-80 MPH. Mom had to think quick. She knew that trying to step outside of the car would be incredibly risky. Not only for me, but for her too. I have to say I am truly impressed with how she managed to twist around in her seat while holding me (seat could not be moved back or even laid back). She stuck me back inside my carrier and triple checked to ensure it's security. It wasnt until later that she realized, I crawled out through the bottom of the door! The bottom part on one side was not secured, the other part had broken! Despite being completely freaked out over the whole thing, whenever she thought about my little head popping up into her rear view mirror, she had to laugh.
Anyway, when we got to our new place, the first thing I found was the top of the refrigerator. Then the top of the cabinets. Then I found the water heater. I was investigating the water heater when somehow I managed to get myself stuck! I started crying and squirming, and scratching, trying to get out, all to NO avail! The only thing mom could get a hold of was one foot and my tail. Mom grabbed my tail and quickly pulled me out. She felt bad for having to do that, but I was stuck, and if I went all the way down she would have had a hard time helping me get out.
I love sitting in the window of the bedroom. It is right over the bed, and my favorite thing to do is leap out of it while mom is sleeping. I usually land right on her stomach. I have earned yet another nickname.... Kamikaze Kitty..... MOL.....
