Arrival Story:
Mom was coming back from a road trip when she had to stop by Wal-Mart to pick up a few things. While she was leaving, a friend pointed out that a man had a box of kittens. She came over there to look at me and my siblings--there were 3 black and white kittens and me, an orange kitty. Obviously you can tell which one Mom chose!

Currently, I no longer live with Mom anymore. My new Daddy was allergic to me, so I went to live with my Grandma Vicky and I love it there! But I know Mom misses me a lot!

Dear Diary,

Yep, I'm still alive and kicking, still living with Grandma Vicky and Grandpa Keith. I love it here. I can catch small animals, sleep outside and I basically have the run of the house.

A few months ago, Grandma Vicky rescued another cat and brought him home. His name is Ozzie and I'm not sure if I like him very much. I mostly ignore him.

Mommy comes to visit often, but we don't interact much. She tries to hug and pet me, but in my old age I don't like to be bothered too much.

Mommy's little baby Aidan grew up into a little boy. He tries to play with me too, but I don't like him either. Ozzie plays with Aidan though.

Mommy brought another one of those small baby creatures around. His name is Christian but he doesn't bother me, so I like him.

Grandpa Keith is my favorite!! He brushes me and gives me treats. I like him the most!!

Dear Diary,

*meow* I have been living with Grandma Vicky and Grandpa Keith for awhile now and I LOVE it here. They feed me lots of treats, I get to play fetch with Grandpa, and I get to roam around the neighborhood. Mommy was always too scared to let me out, but little does she know, I'm a tiger! I can take on anyone.

Except for that mean person who shot me in the leg. :c( I was out n' about, minding my own business, stalking small creatures when something hit me in the leg. It hurt sooo bad, but I managed to crawl home, where Grandma Vicky found me.

Grandma and Grandpa took me to the hospital where I had some X-rays and they made me stay overnight. I finally got to go home, but I couldn't use my leg at all! I was afraid that I would never be able to use it again!

So, it was back to the hospital I went for more X-rays. Apparently, I had a crack in the joint of my hip, so I had to have surgery.

I'm okay now though. Momma was REAL worried, but she's okay now too.

Momma brought a new addition to the family over the other day! It was a smaller version of her...I think it's called a baby. I smelled him a little bit and he smelled really good, like milk. YUM! They kept calling this creature Aidan. I guess I gotta get used to him being around now.

I'm gonna go bathe myself, eat some food, and find something to get into. Hopefully I'll have more updates later!
