Playing fetch, growling, being a watchcat-he knarls at strangers when they knock or if they make noise outside the front door, licking his chops when he hears a clicking sound, using his paw as a hairbrush on momma's head at 5:30AM every morning...


Arrival Story:
It all started by innocently watching "That's My Baby" on Animal Planet. They were featuring the birth of an Abyssinian litter. I instantly fell in love with these cats. I did some more research about the breed and decided I needed to make one my companion. I found a Cattery about 35 miles away from me (called Diva Abyssinians) and made an appointment with the breeder to come see the babies. I asked my boyfriend to take a bunch of Claritin and come with me. We were greeted by the breeder (Stephanie) and about 10 abys, mostly kittens. Stephanie told me that "Birthday Suit" would make a great new addition to my family, and OH was he gorgeous! He was almost a show cat, but he had a small kink on the tip of his tail. One other kitten caught my eye, though. He was running around with a gray puff ball in his mouth, growling at all the other kittens. At one point, he jumped on my boyfriend's lap and tried to climb up his chest. About a week later, I got a call from Stephanie that Birthday Suit climbed too high (like all abys like to do) and when he jumped down, hurt his paw. He wasn't ready to come home with me yet. Besides, since he had hurt himself, Stephanie wanted to keep him separated from the other kittens. She told me he slept with her in her room every night and that she was really going to miss him. So, my boyfriend and I decided we'd rather take the other kitten home, the one who was growling and climbed up his chest. He was already given the name "Tigerman" by Stephanie because of his ferocious roar, and it just stuck. Not one morning goes by without him waking me up at 5:30, licking and pawing at my face. Even if I try to hide under the pillows, he finds me. =)

Poppa likes to give me dance lessons and dress me up like a party cat (see the last picture). I like to make sure my momma knows when I am hungry. Since her alarm clock's gonna go off in 2 hours, I figure she can wake up a little early every morning to feed me... she doesn't mind. And if she doesn't respond to me, I will lick her face with my razor-tongue and when she hides her face under the pillow or blanket, i will just paw and dig until i can find her. She likes it when I do that. Really.

Forums Motto:
More ham, please?

Well, this year was better than last year. My momma played with me all night and brushed me (I loved to be brushed!!). She also came home with a special gift from Poppa: Turkey Deli Meat!!! I like ham the best, but I won't complain about the Turkey!! Wow, I wish birthdays came around more than just once a year!!!

The last time this happened, I was put up in a hotel-without my momma. It was the worst couple days of my life! Well, the other day, my mom started taking all of her things in her house and moving them around. Soon the rooms were empty. And then those plastic cat-carrying boxes came out. I knew I was in for it! That stupid cat hotel...with no momma...no poppa...and worst of all, NO HAM! But to my surprise, my momma didnt take me and my big brother to the cat hotel! She just moved to another house! Hey, the car ride sucked but if I'd had known I wasn't going to the cat hotel, I wouldn't have cried in the car so much! MAYBE.

Well, halloween is coming... And I remember what happened last year. My poppa and momma dressed me up like a pumpkin! You can imagine the nerve!! Well, over the weekend, my poppa decided I would look great with a hot-pink plastic cape on my back. He said I was the 'gay blade'. And that's exactly what I felt like... My momma kept telling him that I'm not a doll that he can just dress up any time. Momma is right.
