Arrival Story:
After Bliss' death I needed a new cat with a similar personality (he spoiled me), and after much research on temperments I decided on Tonkinese. Minuette was part of a package deal from a breeder with her sister Penelope, as the two are very close, and I am infinitely grateful she came. She had won lots of ribbons in cat shows before she came to live with me, but underneath the seemingly ideal appearance is a true sweetheart. It's always what's underneath the surface that matters most to me, and she's far more than just a pretty face.

Bio:
Minuette is not only a glory to hold, but an amazing athlete. When she plays she's like a little tornado, so her sister knows well enough to stay out of the way. While originally Penelope was the one thought of as the therapy cat for my autistic niece, Minuette has been invaluable. She is completely unflappable. The things that would frighten Penelope roll right off of Minuette's back. My niece will sometimes chase her, and then Minuette will chase her right back, to her great delight. She's absolutely incredible: sweet and daring, which is a hard combination to find. She also is surprisingly sensitive, and is usually the first to comfort me if I'm feeling bad. Everytime I sit and play with her she'll come over periodically and give me a nose nudge to connect with me before going back to playing. She's a true sweeetheart with a heart of gold.

She scared the crap out of me!

November 19th 2014 7:31 pm
[ Leave A Comment ]

Mom has been upset with me recently because I sometimes chase my sisfur Penny away from the litter boxes when she wants to use them. Well *I'm* not the one who kicks tons of litter outside the box to cover things up perfectly, and Mom knows I can't stand stepping in litter outside the box. But I stopped chasing her away once Mom got a hand vacuum, and vigilantly sucked up all the excess litter every time Penny got a little too enthusiastic about covering something up.
However, recently I got a bit of a comeuppance. I was using the litter box, minding my own business when Penny decided to use the other litter box next to me. You know how girls always seem to want to go to the bathroom at the same time. Well I was not expecting this in the least, so when I saw her coming in I was mid-poo, and I was so startled I leapt out of the litter box with my poo flying with me! When I leapt out, my poo landed a full three feet clear of the litter box, and I scrambled through the next room in a panic. Mom was cracking up the whole time, saying "she really did scare the s**t out of you, didn't she?" Mom thought it was my just reward for bullying Penny those times--the term "projection" came to her mind--basically that I thought that since I had been out to get Penny all those times, she must be out to get me too. But Mom says Penny isn't that sort and I shouldn't have panicked. Oh well, I guess it all goes as the poo flies . . .

 

Humans Leak--Who Knew?

November 9th 2014 7:27 pm
[ Leave A Comment ]

Mom has the heaters up high for us kitties while we're fighting URIs, and recently Mom keeps having her face wet a lot, and grabbing tissues to dry it off. I don't have any problem with that, so I was curious as to why. Mom said that humans have all these holes in their skin that water comes out of when they're too hot. She said the water evaporating cools them off, though ruefully she said with the heaters on it couldn't evaporate soon enough for her taste. She also said that my ears are so large because I use that to cool myself off instead of leaking like her. Hmmm, I always thought my ears were this way because it's so much more attractive. Witness the fashion trends that have kitty ears on headbands, hoodies and earphones right now--humans seem to want to have ears like us too, and no wonder! However, I had to get a whiff of the watery stuff leaking out of her, so I sniffed the tissue she wiped it off with carefully. Mainly water, with a hint of salt and Mom smell. Nothing too offensive, so I decided I could stand having her pet me after touching the stuff, so long as it had dried off first. Humans are really weird sometimes!

 

Hanging On By a Hair

October 26th 2014 7:42 pm
[ Leave A Comment ]

You remember that my favorite treat is eating a strand of Mom's hair? Well Mom put a stop to that when she figured out the reason behind the flying poo which was mentioned earlier in the diary. To refresh you, the scenario was that I would jump out of the litter box with poo dangling, causing the poo to fly with me and land outside the litter box leaving Mom with a mess. Except that Mom found the reason that the poo was dangling was because the poo was out, but the Mom hair embedded in it was still hanging on. This made me panic, hence jumping out of the box rapidly, sometimes resulting in a butt scoot if the hair with the poo hanging from it still held on. So Mom is not surprisingly stopping all hair nommage. *sigh* Well, I enjoyed the "treat" while it lasted, although instead of "trick or treat" this was a treat *and* trick. :(
