Boom Boom, Nut Job, Get Down From There

Escape artist


Arrival Story:
He came to us by plane from California with Eartha Kitty who we adopted as a retired show cat from Katz N'Jazz Cattery in Sacramento. He is a kitten and is Eartha's cousin. They love each other and tussle silently and fall off the bed and chairs locked in each others paws.

Boomer is affectionate and loves to have his tummy tickled and his head scratched. When he gets involved in play he sticks the tip of his little pink tongue out. He fetches and retrieves and I wake up with all his toys on my pillow. He goes airborne to catch thrown toys just like those disc-dogs and jumps down stairs like a flying squirrel. He likes to sleep in frying pans left on the stove (clean and cold, of course). He speaks with quite a vocabulary. He turns on kitchen timers and is drawn to ringing alarm clocks. He loves people, especially children, and rides around on my shoulder. He steals aluminum foil and will go to any lengths to get at pork bones. He follows us around the house from room to room and sits behind the computer while we surf and check our email. Like most Burmese, he prefers company and doesn't like to be alone.

Our newest toy: Yule tree

Yay! Kept hearing Mom and Dad talk about our first Yule with them this year. That didn't really mean anything until Dad began to string lights around the house which came with lovely long dangly cords to chase. After they got put up they were no more fun, they just went on and off and on and off. But then, we got put into the bedroom and we could hear Mom and Dad talking loud, like "this way," "no, that way." And when we got let out of the bedroom and dashed into the livingroom to say hi, there it was...

So tall and it smelled like the bathroom after it gets cleaned. Mom and Dad watched us so closely, as if we would be dumb enough to climb it when we have a perfectly lovely cat condo with comfy landings and hidey holes.

A couple of sniffs and we were done. Just heard Mom whispering about something called "ornaments." Sounds promising.


today I fell in love (11/9/04) with Clippy from Ames, Iowa

Dear Diary:
My Mom watches Clippy (Calypso Persephone) and Killes (Achilles) on their Bunny Cam all the time. She doesn't know that when she isn't home I turn the computer on and watch hoping that I will catch a glimpse of my secret love, Clippy, when she goes into her special cave. Clippy is a gorgeous Sable Burmese, (just like me), and I worship her from afar. Clippy lives in a place called Iowa which Mom tells me is far away from New York City. I took a plane ride to get to Mom from California, so I could certainly make the trip to Ames, no problem. After all, I was one-year old on October 21st. I am a big boy ready for romance although I have already been to the vet for the you-know-what. I could make the trip, easy; I already know Mom's credit card number (I watched her buy my Hugs & Kisses, a supplement which makes my fur shiny and lovely, online), so I could charge an airline ticket, call a taxi and be on my way. It is a little chilly today, so maybe I'll stay at home and dream of my girl. I can always snuggle up to Eartha, my cousin and housemate. She's nice, too.

I was so excited to see my girl Clippy is the Cat of The Day, today. She is so gorgeous and I am jealous of Killes (her cavemate), altho I must admit, he is quite a handsome Burm, too!

I have had my breakfast, tried to scoot out the door when Mom went to work, got underfoot when Dad was brushing his teeth, so it is time for a snooze on the stove, in my favorite cat warmer, which Mom calls a "skillet."

Ahh, to dream of Clippy....


I help my Mum

Every week my Mum puts her vitamins in little boxes to take with her each day. Today I helped by jumping down on the open boxes so she could make sure all the vitamins were all there. It was so much fun making them roll all over. I could tell she was having fun too by the way she kept saying my name, SOOOO loud. I love helping my Mum.
