Arrival Story:
My dad's Himalayan, The Rug, had died and he was very sad. A good friend prevented him from getting a "puppy mill" kind of kitten and instead he found a burmese breeder on E. 53rd St. whose building was condemned. One of Barney's little cousins tried to charm him into taking him home, but he was too little. Barney jumped down on my dad's shoulders as he was sitting and talking with the breeder, and they went home together and were very happy. Then he met my mom, and a couple of years later, me!

Barney passed away on July 13, 2007, after long battles with his kidneys and his thyroid. We would all like to thank the fine doctors and staff at Pets Unlimited in San Francisco, and Dr. Pamela Dentler, his vet in Brooklyn when he was a little kitty, for all their fine care over the years. He will be missed (from barney's dad!)

I'm going to be 14 on Feb 14th, and I'm wondering what it will be like. Thirteen was sure a strange year, with Lucy coming to visit and Dad being around all the time. So, now that Lucy is part of the family and Dad is still looking for a job, and Maya's in 2nd grade, Patsy has gotten just an inch quieter.

I hope they have a party for me with all my favorite cat-huggers. Maybe fourteen will just be like my regular life. I can still drink out of the toilet, steal my families water glasses, sculpt butter, and follow everyone that comes into house until they hug me.


My birthday

My birthday is coming up and I wonder what presents I'll get. Maybe I'll get a book that shows how to get a puppy to stop annoying you, or another book that can show you how to teach your younger cat sister how to be quiet. A book that shows you how to be a cupid would be nice, or a gardening book on catnip. Maybe a new big hunk of butter so I can make a really interesting butter sculpture and get it into a museum!

Maybe I'll get all of those presents and be a really happy kitty!
