Arrival Story:
At the laundomat one day I spotted a kitten. She was teeny tiny, brown-black-tan fur, probably no more than a few weeks ~ 1 month old. I always go "hey kitty kitty, shwee shwee shwee~*" when I see stray cats, and they usually just run off, but this kitty came trotting over, and then I saw her eyes were all green with gunk. She wanted me to pet her, but since I have three other cats at home, I didn't want to risk spreading around whatever disease she had. I just couldn't leave her there, so I took her home wrapped in an old shirt. We nursed her back to health and decided we loved her too much to give her away.

Since we first found our lovely Lydia, she has grown up to be the most affectionate cat I've ever known. She loves us all unconditionally, even grumpy ole Puska. Once when I was very sad, she ran to where I was, nuzzled herself under my arm and napped next to me until I felt better. She adores grooming so much she has learned that humans can only be groomed on their eyebrows or hands... and that daddy's beard stubble is not to be nibbled! She must think he has knotty, rough fur! Hehe. She has remained tiny, probably due to the fact that she was abandoned by her cat mommy, and weaned off of milk too early as a result. She is joy for all of us, and everyone is happier since she arrived into our lives.

Uh... well sort of!

Lynnie says I'm "so socialized [I] could get along with a pitbull." Hehe... um, what is a pit bull? Anyway, a few times recently I was able to snuggle up next to the grumpy old lady, Puska. She even chases me around for playtime and allows me to lick her cheek or her forehead if I time it just right! She still growls and hisses at me, and bats me away. But I am making progress! I will make her my friend if it uses up an entire one of my nine lives!

She hates to admit it, but she and I have a lot in common. :)


Sammy smells like dog poo!

Mommy... I mean Lynnie-human said that I'm going to get heat soon, but I dunno, the heat is already on, I know it is because the little squares on the floor blow air and the air is warm and the humans call it that the "heat is on"... but she said I'm going to get heat to. I wonder if I will get little blowy squares put in my fur... that will be cool! she said I'm getting heat soon, but they will fix it. They said Sammy needs to get fix too, because she has heat... I groomed her today and I didn't find any heat square blow thingies... the humans are so confuzzling!!!
