Nicknames: The Rhesus, Mr. Tail, Reesey, Rhesus Piece-us, Little Eyes, Scrags, CAT.
Birthday: April 16th 2006
Coloration: Orange & White Tabby
Likes: Giving face rubs, wet food, playing with toy mice, pouncing on Little Miss Stank, and taking naps with the people.
Pet-Peeves: Being touched whenever he doesn't feel like it, touching his belly, loud noises, getting in his space. And, Rhesus will absolutely not tolerate a closed door; he will attempt to burrow a hole underneath the door and meow his displeasure until he gets in!
Favorite Toy: Rhesus loves Mr. Fat Rat and the Super Scratcher.
Favorite Nap Spot: In bed with me, by the front door, and on the floor next to the bed.
Skills: Rhesus is attempting to open doors. He's very crafty, and he's great at playing fox. He's also a total kick ass.
Arrival Story: I went to a "cat lady's" house in Savannah, and Reese was the adventurous little fellow who befriended me from his litter. He had a terrible upper respiratory infection, and enough fleas to nearly kill him, but one good visit to the vet fixed him up. His owner couldn't afford to take care of the more than 20 cats she owned.
Bio: Rhesus is my best pal, and he has two housemates - Greystoke and Little Miss Stank. He has recently gotten his first taste of the outdoors, but he doesn't like to explore on his own!
Wow - I've been away from Catster for a while. My typist went on vacation, and I had no Catster, no daily treats of wet food, no trips outside, no pets - nothing but me and my siblings running the house. Well, we made a mess! Not too much of one, but we had to knock a few things over. I was so happy to see them return! First, I ran outside, because I felt cooped up. A house is just not big enough. And then, they called me in and I got Wet Food, part I. I say Part I, because even though it was kind of late, they made it a toucan night! Part II came later! I ran outside some more, and then I came to the door. I would sit looking cute, and when they came to open the door for me, I would run around as fast as I could and show off! I'm such a good kitty. Finally, I was so tired and full of delicious food, that I came in and curled up next to my mom. I just knocked out for a while! I was so happy when it was time to go to bed, and I shared her pillow as usual and purred. Wow - I missed them! Then, we had a really big thunderstorm that night, so my brother and sister actually got in the bed, too, because they were scared. It was loud, but really neat. I'm so glad they're back!
So tonight when I came in from outside, my mum and dad were playing a game on the coffee table. This was excellent, because I discovered that the top of the box makes an excellent bed for a kitty - especially me! I sniffed and pawed at it for mere seconds before I discovered that this must be what box tops are made for. So, I curled up in it. Apparently I look very handsome in box tops, because pretty soon mum and dad had quit playing and started brushing me. I don't usually like the brush, but it felt pretty nice tonight. I stayed for a while, until they resumed game play. As if I am not far more entertaining! I heard mum say that this must mean I would really like my own special bed. I wonder if I am going to get a surprise soon? I hope so! If not soon, maybe for my birthday. It's only a little over a month away....
....are really not fun! When I first started getting to go outside, I got to go all the time. But, then, we started getting rain. And, lately it rains all the time! My mom says I'm the cure for the drought - we didn't get any rain until I started liking the outside. Now, it rains, and I can't go play. I try, but I really hate mud. It acts like glue and all these dead itchy leaves stick to me. They get stuck in my hair, and I turn into Rasta Kitty - I get little dreadlocks that form around them. No fun! And, it hurts when my mom tries to help me and pull them off, because they pull my fur. So, I've learned that rain is crummy. But it still makes me mad. I hope it stops by tomorrow.
