   Leave a treat for Jack

My human insists on calling me Chubbers, no matter how svelte and sexy I am looking these days. How rude. I prefer to be called "Shagadelic," or better yet..."a god."

Kitty Complexion:
sleepyvery active
not curiousvery curious
not vocalvery vocal

Black Smoke

Eating is my primary pasttime. And I must say, those porcelain waste disposal contraptions with the water in them are fascinating. I also love to lay on my back, completely spread eagle.

Anyone except Mom picking me up. What do they think they are DOING ruffling this fur? Does it look like just ANYone is allowed to touch it?

Favorite Toy:
Da Bird. It will be mine. Oh yes...it will be mine.

Favorite Nap Spot:
Right by the front door, so as to guard against unwanted specimens entering my domain.

Favorite Food:
I am a fan of eating in general. My plan to steal people food is thwarted day in and day out, however. Once plan B is hatched, I plan on savoring every bit of that chicken stir fry. And as I always say... "a bug a day keeps the vet away."

I have been known to jump repeatedly into the air up to heights of 4-5 feet in order to kill my wand toys. I am a champion "fetch" player. I also take dictation, and my human asks me for help with her typing a lot.


Arrival Story:
My human had been looking for a companion for weeks. I knew I had to lay down the charm when I saw her -- she looked like the type to give me the special treatment I require. When I saw her, I immediately began showing off my beautiful coat and rippling muscles (I'm quite buff) and I gave her my "look" that drives girls wild. She couldn't resist my eyes. (See primary photo for example -- you'd take me home too and you know it.) I knew this was the last trip she'd be making, I had her at "meow"...if you know what I mean. Pampered lifestyle, here I come!

I am a huge loverboy, all the girls say so. (My favorite cuddle partner is my male human though, and there is NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT!) Back to the subject...ME...I know you are asking yourself "how did he get so lucky with a striking coat like that?" It's all white underneath -- if my human would shave me I'd be white! Yeah...I know I'm hot. My eyes are a deep golden color, although they never seem to come out right in photos. I enjoy long walks along the beach, (okay so it's more like the living room wall with a hanging picture of a beach), staying up talking all night, and apple pies. (Yeah...so I've never ACTUALLY tried one...but my dream will come true one day...one day when she's NOT looking.)

My Tail of Devotion for Jack

Jack, if there's one thing I wish I could tell you, it would be that you were exactly what I needed at exactly the right time. I loved the cat you were when you came to me, and I love the companion you've grown into. You are a constant jumble of paradoxes. You are gentle, yet clumsy. You are elegant, yet clownish. You are calm, yet easily frazzled. You are an independent soul, yet a soulful companion. Your presence in my life is constant, true, and you never cease to warm my heart. I need you and you need me, and I feel like somehow we have the ability to communicate. You are a beauty and a joy, and there will never be another like you. I love you, my buddy.

This is a special Tail of Devotion

I am Awesome

I have successfully killed and eaten approximately 23 flies today. That has to be some kind of record. You see -- they had been building up for quite a while in my screened-in porch, but my female human hasn't opened the door for me due to the chill in the air. Today she was kind enough to oblige. I'm sure the truth is that she desperately needed my services, and knew that I was the only one for the job. Who else? I am champion "catch-fly-in-midair-with-mouth-or-paw-and-promtly-begin-to- digest...er." I am awesome.

That's it, I am fed up. My female human has me on a "diet." She claims that I am eating way faster than Mia (well duh...she eats like a bird...), then headbutting her out of the way and finishing her food when I'm done with mine. Therefore, she claims, I am eating way more than I should. THAT IS NOT FOR HER TO DECIDE!!! She doesn't understand the pressures of being this handsome. A cat doesn't become this handsome and buff just by excercising all day and eating in "timed feedings." THAT'S FOR SISSIES!!! I must have food readily available for my consumption at all times. What if the other cats get wind of this?? I'll be the laughingstock of the Ferocious Feline Hunks, and I might not be asked to be in the Calendar this year!!!

I will not just sit back and take this. She WILL learn (if she is fond of her couch in it's current condition) that when I am in the kitchen, I EXPECT food, and I will have it. Diet my foot.
