Well, over the past two years, Patrick and I have become best friends. We would do everything together, sleep on Mommy's bed, play together, hang out together. He's really a cool brother, as nice and smart as Magic. Things were perfect, like they had been when both my brothers Frank and Magic were around.
Then something horrible happened. Someone gave Mom a Siamese cat who has totally messed up everything we had going. He arrived just after Christmas and Mom named him Niko after St. Nicholas. Not a saintly boy is this Niko!
I tried to make friends with him and he snorted at me like a pig. He eats like a pig too, if Mom leaves our food out, he will eat ALL the crunchies in the dishes, in addition to his own!
He dumps Mom's coffee (and drinks it too if he can) picks fights with meand Patrick (scares the daylights out of me!) knocks everything down, throws everything in the litter box (Mom has had lots of laundry lately!) is constantly in the garbage, knocking it over. He rips dust covers off of books. He bites Mom instead of kissing her (not hard, but it took a while for her to get used to that). Mom is always yelling "Don't!" at him all day long, because he is always about to break something or knock it over.
At night, when we are sleeping, he unexpectedly jumps on the bed and picks fights with Patrick in the middle of the night, scaring Mom and me out of our wits! So now, he has to be in his own room at night or we have to be locked up in Mom's bedroom. Sometimes Pat is out with Niko (Pat is very brave!) but he sometimes looks a bit harried in the morning, with his fur standing a bit on end!
I suggested to Mom that we put him on Ebay...even if we only got a dollar or two it would be worth it! Mom smiled and said, "Seana, that's a lovely thought, but we couldn't do that. We need to find Niko a nice home where he will be the only cat or with some cats that like to rough-house. He needs a home where all the people and the kitties will love him." Yeah, like there is such a place! I certainly don't like to rough-house - I am a cultured lady and don't like his kind of play. He is a little ruffian.
So...in the meantime....I'm hiding all day...
