Likes: Drinking out of the faucet, the watering can and our glasses. Belly rubs.
Pet-Peeves: Right now, it seems to be Muffin in general.
Favorite Toy: He love's all of his toys that have catnip, toy mice & the cat tree.
Favorite Nap Spot: His favorite spot is on a table by the dining room window. He can see into the living room, dining room & kitchen and can keep an eye on everything...inside & out!
Favorite Food: Shrimp & ribs
Skills: Making everone smile that see's him.
Arrival Story: His first mommy got him when he was 5 weeks old. He was 1 of 5 kittens born on a fish farm in Missouri. His first mommy moved out-of-state to help take care of her ailing father and she had to find new homes for Prince & Ringo. How terribly hard for her...to give up her precious boys! She tried for a long time to find homes for them. She and I became friends on SOMC & Catster. Her SOMC nickname is Hello Kitty. My husband & I love cats & recently lost our sweet Paulie. We missed having big old boy kitties around and wanted to help HK, too. So we asked if we could adopt both of them & she said yes! We talked on the phone a lot & agreed to meet at her sister's house near Kansas City on Oct. 20th, 2008. After a teary meeting, I drove home to Oklahoma with Prince & Ringo. They were both angels on the trip home. I'd been worrying so much about how all 4 kitties were going to get along, but I knew right then everything was going to be fine....and it is. He & Muffin are not the best of friends, but they get a long much better than they used to.
Bio: He's very lovable & was buddies with all of HK's other kitties. He adores Ringo. He became friends with Bessie soon after the move, but he & Muffin still have bad days. I think he just wants to groom her & play with her, but she won't let him. It IS better now, but they still have a way to go. He is a talker. HK said whenever she sneezed, he always meowed & looked at her as if he were saying "bless you". When I'm sleeping, he relentlessly pokes me in the face. That's why we call him the Borg. You Star Trek NG fans will understand. He and Ringo are still buddies and we are blessed to have them in our home. We love him.
Just wanted to check in with you to let you know I'm okay. Mommy says I'm fat & sassy....just like always. :)
I say I'm NOT fat. I'm big boned. I keep telling Mommy I exercise all the time!
Every time she goes up or down the stairs, I go with her, and she goes up & down the stairs a LOT. She forgets my legs are much shorter than hers, so I really get a workout running stairs.
I jump onto the kitchen counters all the time and sometimes even keep going up to the top of the fridge. Of course, I always have to take a nap if I get up there. I also jump way up high onto the china cabinet, but again....then I have to nap.
Whenever Mommy sits in the bathroom (you know what I mean) I rub her legs. Then I jump & rub at the same time. Over and over until she is "finished."
I have to jump in the laundry room to get to our water fountain. I tell ya, she doesn't make it easy for me. How would she like it if SHE had to jump for her water!?!?!
If only Mommy would exercise as much as I do, she'd be back into those skinny jeans in no time flat.
Mommy has done some mumbling lately about changes to Catster. She likes most of the changes, but thinks there are still some "kinks" to be worked out...whatever THAT means.
Many kitties have been SO nice to us this weekend. We (me, Ringo, Muffin, Bessie, Paulie, Bob, Critter, Sammie, Katie, Mollie & Buddy)were given lots of yummy treats....hamburgers, wienies, watermelon & ice cream!! OMC, we've been eating like little pigs all weekend!. We ALL want to thank all of our friends who gave us these nommy treats and hope you all had wonderful weekends.
Mommy has been grumbling because she noticed some weird things today. Buddy & I each got several hamburgers & things to eat this weekend but Mommy didn't get a single email telling her so. She got emails when our furblings got treats, but not when we did. Without doing something she calls a spreadsheet or writing everything down on paper...Mommy says she can't even keep track. This may be because it's almost 2 o'clock in the morning, or it may be because it is confusing. Anyway.....I hope no one gets mad at me or Mommy because we didn't write individual thank you notes for our nice gifts. I hope that if I say "thank you" from all of us, you will understand.
To all our kitty friends who gave us yummy goodies & sent us well wishes for the long Memorial Weekend.......THANK YOU!!!
