Tortoiseshell and white

Being sneaky! I'm also pretty good at finding random things around the house to become my new toys...you can never have enough toys!

The vacuum and when strangers visit. People with shoes on...I've been known to get under people's feet! Now I back away when they come near me if their shoes haven't been removed. I really hate being yelled at, too!

Favorite Toy:
I love my mices, Toby's string, and the bouncy ball, and squishy ball, and the cat cube, and the condo, the milk cap rings I stole from my big brother Dusty, my kitty jacks, ooh and my crinkle balls! Newest toy is the Pink Crinkly Tunnel O'Fun.

Favorite Nap Spot:
On the bed with Meowmy or on the bench's comfy pillows. Usually with my head hanging off the side.

Favorite Food:
Anything that Dusty or Toby is trying to eat. Also anything Meowmy or Daddy is trying to eat. So, pretty much anything that's not mine. Eating things that aren't food is fun, too!

I'm a good pouncer! I also like to tumble and jump high. I am always getting into trouble for going up on the counter. Lately I've been stealing Q-tips from the trash!


Arrival Story:
I am the little sister of Dusty, we have the same fur-mommy. Daddy found me behind a shed when I was about 4 or 5 weeks old. He snatched me up and I bit him real hard and hissed to try to scare him! I guess I did, because he handed me off to Meowmy. I bit her too, and hissed, but she didn't care. She calmed me right down and took me in. At first, Dusty and Toby hated me, and we got along like fighting brothers and sisters do. But now we're doing much better. I like to copy Dusty, because he's my idol. Toby is my cuddle buddy, and we take cat naps together. I love to play with his tail and wrestle with him, too!

Here's the story about how I got my name...Meowmy and Daddy stole my name from one of our Catster furriends. She's a calico just like me and Daddy thought she was the cutest thing with a purrfect name. When they got me, I reminded him of Mia, so the name stuck. It's also funny that Mia in Portuguese means Meow, because I do meow a lot. Meowmy and Daddy think that I'm MIA (Missing in Action) often, too. I'm usually busy playing.

Whenever I am done drinking, I'm left with a wet chin. I guess I get too much into the bowl! I am very sneaky and love to steal Q-Tips out of the trash! I snore when I sleep...it even wakes up Meowmy! MOL

Mia's Great Adventures

Don't Try This At Home!

Before I start I want to make sure every kitty knows that the trick I’m about to discuss should not be attempted at home. Remember, even I failed at this trick and it was after many practice runs! It’s not an easy trick! (But if you are too tempted, make sure the toilet water is clean!)

Warning: This trick was performed by a professional stunt-kitty, and performed under the strict supervision of a Stunt Director (aka Meowmy) for safety. Mia cannot be held liable for any bodily injury or harm…including wet paws or other body parts; any broken stunt-kitty dreams; or any ensuing embarrassment, that such kitty might encounter when attempting to duplicate the toilet trick. Any attempts at such trick are at the kitty’s own risk.

Ok now that we have THAT out of the way…I’ve been trying to perfect a new trick that I have. Meowmy actually doesn’t like it too much and has warned me several times of the possible consequences of continuing to do such trick, but I never listened. You see, I’ve always been interested in achieving new heights and investigating new things within our house. There are still a few places that I have to check out. Meowmy usually has our toilet seat down, unless of course it’s in use. So I’ve been sneaking peaks before and after their use! Though I will admit, I have gotten impatient at times and joined her while it was in use. Anyway, up until the other day, I was pretty good at jumping onto the seat and balancing myself up there. I mean I do have little paws and the seat is wide, it’s no big, right? The other day I snuck a jump up, right as Meowmy was about to take a seat. She yelled at me to “get down”, so I had to turn around and jump down. Well, my balance must have been off that day because all of a sudden my back paw slipped and…PLOP! It went in the toilet! All I could say is “Aaaaaah my foot is wet, my foot is WET!” I scrambled to try to get it out and jump down. My back paw kept slipping on the seat from the wetness. I ran and licked it as dry as I could, but it still felt wrong long after. I walked around shaking off my back paw for quite a while. Meowmy kept laughing at me. She told me “I told you so”. Also that I ‘deserved’ it, because I was interrupting her from taking a much needed pee, if you get my drift. (She was dancing around the toilet when she first got there, you can imagine how much she was dancing by the time she got done laughing at me.) So I guess what this has taught me is to work on my balance and, of course, never give up. Even though I may have gotten one wet paw, I’m going to stick it out and try, try again! I’m a brave kitty. I just need to order me a wet suit online first…what size do you think I am?


Elvis Has NOT Left the Building...

Meowmy and Daddy have been laughing at me and calling me Elvis. I don’t find it to be very amusing. You see, one of the kitties bit my lip and I have a little puncture mark inside my mouth and a fat lip from it. It’s not huge, but it does make me close my mouth funny. It also seems like I have something hidden in my cheek. But it looks like I’ve got one side of my lips raised higher than the other, and you can see my tooth underneath. So I guess for that reason I DO resemble Elvis.

They just tried to put something on it to make it better, but it was cold. I hate it when they try to fix me. I can heal myself, Thank You Very Much.

They’re laughing at me again! What?? What was so funny? I don’t get it!

Don’t be cruel…making fun of a kitty. Sheesh!


Finders Keepers

I thought I’d take a moment to explain the very scientific, ‘Theory of Finders Keepers’ for all you kitties out there. (Particularly my family!) I realize there’s a Queen in many houses, and I can understand if you feel the need to alter my definition to fit your own needs. I do claim rights to this definition, however. It’s very simple and can be explained in one easy to remember sentence. First I’ll give the “layman’s definition” as the humans would call it, for any slow kitties. And then I’ll describe how it works in more detail.

“Whatsoever Mia finds, Mia keeps.”

It’s that simple! Before we get started please understand the following; when I say Mia I mean me, not any of you other kitties named “Mia”. After all, I’m the genius behind the theory. And yes, I do realize I’m speaking in the third person in the definitions, but you see I don’t want my siblings to get confused when I make them memorize and repeat the rules later. If I wrote the definitions in the first person they might get confused and think they get to keep everything and we don’t want that!

For individuals that are interested in more information…these are the 4 parts of the official “Theory of Finders Keepers” by definition:

1.Anything that humans leave hanging around the house (be it on the floor, on the computer desk, or on any other surface within the house) becomes Mia’s in the event that she finds it and decides that it shall be Mia’s new toy.

Side note: While this can be absolutely any kind of “thing”; I especially like pens, pencils, chapstick, receipts, and IPod earbuds. Of course, there is no limitation as to what may become mine. And yes, I do take bribes.

2. Any toy left behind shall become the personal property of Mia. Any kitty that attempts to retrieve such toy shall be tackled and wrestled until they give in and return it to its rightful owner…Mia.

3. Any food left untouched by any family member, cat or human, must be allowed to Mia if she happens upon it first.

4. These rules are subject to change as Mia sees fit. Additional rules can also be added upon need. Void where prohibited by Meowmy. Rules are applicable to any furry creature or human entering Mia’s territory. Lost items will not be returned to its original owner. No purring necessary. Purring will not increase your chances of recovering your lost item. Decisions of Mia are final and binding in all respects.

If anyone is thinking, “Wow, she’s really smart for such a little kitty”…that’s right! I am street smart and street tough, and don’t you forget it!
