I like playing chase. Sometimes Teddy will play with me, but sometimes he just hisses at me and bites my ear. When that happens, I'll try to get mommy to play chase. I also love cuddling with my mommy and sleeping on her pillow beside her head.

I hate getting wet. I also don't understand why I'm not allowed on tables and countertops. My mom says it's not sanitary, and Teddy gets really mad at me when I set off the security alarm by jumping on the table when mom and dad aren't home.

Favorite Toy:
I love to eat plastic bags, especially shopping bags, but my mom won't let me.

Favorite Nap Spot:
I like to sleep on anything that is a dark color so I blend in.

Favorite Food:
I love meat!

I walk like Carlie Chaplin. The vet says I might have been hit by a car when I was younger. It doesn't slow me down at all though! I'm also a pretty good mouser, but Mom and Dad don't seem to appreciate the food I leave them in the front hall.


Arrival Story:
I was wandering around outside the SPCA for several days, trying to get someone to let me inside. One day the night manager decided to open the door when I knocked, just to see what I would do. Naturally, I walked right in and went to the bowl of food they left out for their office cat. When I had finished eating, I asked to be let out again. After a few days of this, one of the day staff picked me up and put me in a cage. She said someone must have owned me at some point because I am soooo friendly and I'm neutered and declawed. I wasn't very happy living in a cage. On top of that, after a few days I got sick, so they put me in a different room with other sick cats. I had to stay there for a whole week! When i started to feel better, they put me back in the other cage. Lots of people came to see me, but no one wanted to take me home. Lucky for me, a nice lady saw my picture on Petfinder and decided to take me home to be a friend for her other cat. I was very excited to meet my new mommy's cat. I went right up to him and tried to play with him, but he got scared and ran away. He hid under mom's bed for a few days, but he got used to me. Me and Teddy got to be pretty good friends. A little while ago Teddy got sick. He was having lots of trouble pooping, so Mom and Dad took him to the vet. The vet said Teddy wasn't going to get better, and that made Mom and Dad very sad. They had to take Teddy to have a forever sleep so he wouldn't hurt anymore. I really miss Teddy.

Priscilla is fitting in pretty well with us now. Sometimes she tries to eat our food and I swat at her. Mom tells me I shouldn't do that because I'm pretty big and she's so little. She doesn't like Priscilla eating our food anyway because Priscilla has tummy problems and has to eat special food.

Priscilla was peeing on stuff a lot and the vet says she's not sick. Mom and Dad didn't want all their stuff (and our stuff) peed on, so they bought some diapers for Priscilla. She doesn't mind wearing them at all and now she's allowed to go anywhere she wants in the house. She likes to sleep on Mom's pillow with her, which doesn't make me very happy because that's *my* spot. Sometimes I let her sleep with Mom though and Mom says she's proud of me for being such a good boy and taking turns with Priscilla.


I don't like the vet!

Mom and Dad took me and Priscilla to the vet yesterday and it was awful. Normally the vet pets me and tells me how nice I am and then she pokes me with a needle and sometimes she sticks something up my butt. I don't really like any of that, but I'm still a super good boy and I make my Mom proud. This time was different though. This time they took me in another room and poked me with two big needles. She collected some blood with one and she stuck the other one into my bladder! I let her know that was *not* cool with me at all! I was really growly but I didn't bite anyone, so Mom said I was still a good boy. Mom told me they have to look at my blood under a microscope and make sure everything is the way it should be. She said now that I'm 9 we need to check these things more often to make sure nothing is wrong.

Priscilla has been peeing on the mats in the bathroom so the vet said she had to have her blood checked too. They tried to get some pee from her bladder, but she is sooooo small that her bladder was too small to get a needle in. Mom told me Priscilla was gaining weight, but she lost a little bit this week so now the vet has to try to think of a way to make Priscilla want to eat more. They were giving her special drugs called steroids, but Mom said those are very hard on a kitteh's body and she and the vet want to try to think of some other way to help Priscilla.

Priscilla gets to stay out in the whole house with us all the time now. I keep trying to play with her, but she doesn't seem interested. Molly isn't very happy with her at all, but Mika and I don't think she's so bad. Mom says she's gaining weight, which is good for her, but she says Molly needs to lose weight because she''s getting too tubby.

Priscilla has to eat special wet food that's make from rabbit. Mom let me sniff some of it but it didn't smell tasty to me at all. She also gets to eat some special dry food but Mom won't give me any of that.
