My parents, water, looking out windows, bird and squirrel watching, sleeping in the sun, being brushed, chasing Odin

Getting my claws clipped, being held, vet visits

Favorite Toy:
Styrofoam, wads of paper, feathers, play-mice

Favorite Nap Spot:
My round bed and mom's bed

Favorite Food:
I eat Wellness cat food but my very favorite food is turkey!

Opening doors, giving kisses, finding glasses of water and knocking them over... I really love water!


My meowmy and I came to find each other through a wonderful local rescue organization, S.A.F.E (Save Animals From Euthanasia). They took me in after I was found under a dumpster with my fur-family. I was in and out of foster homes and also Petsmart (I stayed in one of those cages) for awhile, no one seemed to want a very shy kitty :o( I've really come around though, with the love and patience from my human mom! I'm still timid around new people, but eventually I warm up. I'm very affectionate with my parents when I want to be, but I also like time by myself to catch up on my beauty rest (as if I need it!). Oh, and I love licking water off my mom's toes when she gets out of the shower! I lay by the bathroom door every night, waiting for her to let me in. And about my name, since I find that people often have never heard of it...I was named after the first emperor of Rome. Google it sometime ;o)

Thanksgiving Tag

I was tagged by my favorite girl, Marie! I'm supposed to list 5 things I am thankful for and then tag 5 furriends. This will be fun, I love Thanksgiving!

1. I'm thankful for my warm and cozy home. Here in Michigan, the weather is already very cold and snowy and there's so many humans and animals out there who don't have a warm place to go.

2. I'm thankful for the nutritious food in my tummy. I'm especially thankful for the delicious treats in the "kitty cabinet."

3. I'm thankful for my little (sometimes annoying) brofur, Odin. He keeps me company during stressful visits to the vet and he's fun to chase around.

4. I'm thankful for the rescue organization, S.A.F.E, for taking me in when I was a kitten, and I'm thankful for my meowmy who adopted me. I had been with the organization for quite some time...No one seemed to want a very shy kitty. If only they could see me now!

5. Last but not least, I'm thankful for Catster and all the wonderful families we've met here, especially my pal Norman. We love all of you guys from the bottom of our little hearts!

Now, this is where I'd usually tag 5 furriends but it seems that everyone has already been tagged! So if you are reading this and would like to play, consider yourself "Thanksgiving tagged" by Octavian!

Thanksgiving hugs to all ♥,


I'm going for my shots tomorrow (updated)

Hi furriends >^.^<

Well, it's that time of the year again...I'm due for my annual shots tomorrow at 2 p.m. I won't be going alone this year, though, Odin is due for his, too! Oh boy it's going to be bad! Dad won't be able to go this time due to work so mom is going to have to do it by herself. That’s okay, though, she just complains that I'm too heavy--especially in my carrier. Me, too heavy? She's just too weak! Anymew, I can guarantee tomorrow will be full of scratches, squirming, flying fur, wheezing, and maybe an occasionally poo on the vet office's floor (I do that when I get upset). Sounds fun, right? I'm also due to get my teeth cleaned, so mom plans on making an appointment for that tomorrow while we're there. This time she's going to ask for a mild sedative to give me before she takes me to my cleaning, though. I get so upset at the vet's, she's afraid I'll have a heart attack one of these days. Teeth cleanings are especially stressful for me since they have to draw blood. Mom gets sad just thinking about how awful and scared I must feel :o( Hopefully a mild sedative will relax me and also help to make the vet's job a little easier. I guess we'll just have to see! I sure would appreciate it if I didn't have to be so scared, though.

Wish me luck!

Hugs ♥,

Update 11-19-2008
My appointment went better than expected! I was a very brave boy (even the vet said so). My shots went well--I didn't even make a noise. Neither Odin nor I have worms (as expected) and I even lost a pound! I'm now down to 13.2, hooray!

After Odin and I were done with our exams and shots, mom left us in the examining room while she went to pay. When she left, we were both in our own carriers (doors open). When she came back, she closed my door and tried to pick me up. Much to her surprise, I was about 10 pounds heavier than when she carried me in! She peeped in my cage only to find Odin and me, curled up with one another. I looked at her, giving her a very slooow blink, closed my eyes and went back to sleep. Odin and I were calm the entire drive home :o)

Tomorrow, I'm scheduled for my teeth cleaning. Mom is very nervous, as expected. She has to drop me off at 7:45 in the morning, and she can pick me up around 2 or 3 in the afternoon, as long as I'm fully awake from the anesthesia. Maybe I should bring Odin for support...Hehe :o) He seemed to calm me last week, so I thank him for that. He's a good little brother!

Hugs ♥,


"Things I Don't Like" tag!

I was tagged by my orange furriend, Fuzz! Fun!

Here are 5 things that I don't like:

1. Strangers--especially noisy ones!

2. Having my teeth brushed. I have gingivitis, so meowmy insists upon brushing them often. Ick!

3. Being held for too long. I'll scratch and squirm!

4. When meowmy closes the windows and turns on the a/c. I hate not being able to hear the birdies and sniff the fresh air!

5. Almond extract. Mom puts it in French toast and I got a whiff of it once and OMC! I made such a terrible face. That stuff stinks!

I tag:
1. Marie
2. Victor Gibbs
3. KuJu Ku
4. Neo
5. Puffin
