Arrival Story:
when i was 13 something had happened to my pet cat and i was very sad not having a companion. my mom told me about some friends she had which had many cats and kittens. one day she came home as i was playing with face paints and she put this tiny kitten onto my bed. he was so small and his first photo while he's on my bed is at this page. he was very comfortable and started kneading everything in sight and purring, it was like he knew he was my soul mate. he's my little angel :)

i have cat breed books and he always looks like the 'Norweigen Forest Cat' or 'Maine Coon' in the pictures. i don't know what his mom looked like, but all the other kittens (my mom said) were short haired and usual looking. he was the only long haired cat with all these neat markings. i think he must have something special in his genes. [He's your child?] I know many people are dog people because they assume cats are distant and independent. Hobbes is my child, he's the closest I have ever been with any animal or even anyone. When it's time for me to come home he waits for me in the front window and as I come towards the door, he quickly jumps down and waits by the front door. My mom calls him my little puppy dog because he follows me all through the house meowing until I'll sit/lay down and spend time with him. He does go to do his own things like eat, use the bathroom, or visit other people in the house, but he spends most of his day in my room with me. He loves bed time and he's always happy to nap with me until he finds something else to do. He's always wanting to give me kisses and he'll even kiss my fingers while I'm typing or writing. He's my sweet boy and I can't explain how dependent and loving he is. [7 out of 9 lives?] As you can see, he has lost 2 of his 9 lives.. He lost life number 9: One day I let him outside and he didn't come home for hours (he usually comes right home after a short time). I was really worried about him so I spent a lot of time calling for him and he never answered my calls by arriving. It became night time and I was really having a panic attack and crying now.. it was very strange. If he wasn't hurt he would be hurt soon by wild dogs or cayotes (we live near woods). Somehow the long night passed and my mom found him crawling close to the ground. He had been hit by a car somewhere and apparently his whole butt was cracked. We took him to the vet immediately and found that he would not be paralyzed and he had to be on strong pain killers and couldn't be held until he healed. Thankfully he is fine now and he's only allowed outside with his harness. He lost life number 8: Hobbes had a butt infection in the year of 2004. He was taken to the vet which had a new doctor and he hissed at him.. the doctor said there was nothing he could do but remove the infection, he said if it didn't get better Hobbes would die. I became paniced and when we took him back to the vet his childhood doctor found a tumour where the infection had occurred. It was removed and he luckily slowly got better. :)

little milk has passed away.. my mom was crying and I didn't understand why. I tried to give her snuggles but she was holding milk while she passed. milk was a good girl and I will miss watching her run around from the floor below.

for christmas I must have been a good boy! I got meow mix real tuna treats which are good for my teeth, they keep teeth healthy. I also got a set of colorful fur mice (my favorite!) and a cat attack! cat attack is a robot cat which is remote controlled and it swings a furry ball and ribbon around randomly so it's too fun! i was scared of it at first but now i sit and play with it for a long time.

i am 8 years old now :) my birthday was sept 8th. my mom will upload photos of my 'party' for you to see.

my new years resolution is to sleep in more.. what's yours?

happy 2006! wish all you kitties lots of mice and tummy rubs!
