Gray and White

Watching football on tv; being loved; a good brushing every night; his pal Oscar; and hearing his people say, "Joey! Where's the mouse?"

Pointy things, especially watering cans. He'll walk right up to one and whap it on the spout. Metallic sounds are definitely verboten. Big B*lls (the cat from down the street) better watch his tail.

Favorite Toy:
His "slobber bee," a felt toy stuffed with catnip; the sofa; any fur faux-mouse; Oscar; twisty ties; fragile things; anything subject to the laws of gravity (all things on elevated surfaces must be tested to make sure they fall to the ground properly).

Favorite Nap Spot:
In the middle of the floor, on his back with legs akimbo.

Favorite Food:
Donuts. And rose petals. (That's pollen from lilies on his cheeks in one of the pictures.)

Joey has very long haunches. As a result, he can jump--levitate, really--quite high. I also suspect he can walk on the ceiling, though I haven't actually witnessed it yet.

indoors and outdoors

Arrival Story:
Joey was adopted from a family of many, many cats. As a result, he's well socialized with both cats and people. Except for his doppelganger...

Joey is Oscar's half brother. They're buds.

Lives Remaining:
9 of 9

Forums Motto:
Handsome, but Insane

The Groups I'm In:
Febreze® Pet Odor Eliminator™, Feliway® Felines, Multiple Cat households!!!

Country of Origin:
The Land of Insane Cats. He is their King.

I was lost!

It was really scary, what happened to me.

It's been a couple of years now, but I was LOST! One day I didn't come home. My people put up signs everywhere and posted on different websites hoping someone would recognize me. They kept checking with the animal shelters, but...nothing.

Finally, when Manperson was talking to a neighbor late one night, the neighbor said the landlord from a few houses down had been doing work on it and that he stores stuff in the crawl space. The friend was going to check the next day, but Manperson said "Forget that! I'm checking right now!" So they said good night and he hopped the fence in the dark and went to the door to the crawl space. I remember hearing the door open and his beautiful voice saying, "Joey!" I answered him, but I was hungry and tired so I guess he wasn't sure what he heard. He said my name again, but this time I was louder and went running over to him. We were both so happy!! I was alone in the dark for more than two days!

He promised Ladyperson that if he found me he would not let me go, so he grabbed me, climbed the fence holding me (I kept trying to get away--I was free!) but he held onto me and took me home. Ladyperson says she remembers hearing someone kicking at the front door and shouting "Open up!" She did, and he was standing at the door holding me under my arms with a big, silly grin on his face.

They made a big fuss over me, petting me and laughing, but I just wanted to eat something. So they made me a plate of food and I ate the whole thing. It was the best food I ever tasted. Better than fresh mouses!

So let me tell you people something. If your cat is missing, they might be close by, locked up somewhere wondering where you are. Have your neighbors check their crawl spaces, sheds, garages--anywhere a cat can fit.

You never know!


HD TV Rules!!

Ever since my peeps got hi-def tv, I can't stop watching it! My favorite is football (glad the Redskins are back on), but I'm not too picky. I'll stretch out on the sofa and watch it til I fall asleep. But why won't they let me have the remote?

Ooohmigawd! I won my CATegory! I'm the best of the Outdoor and Country Cats! I'm trying very hard to maintain my dignity, but I'm so excited I can't sit still! And now my paw is stuck on the exclamation points!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yowwww! soon as I contain myself, I'm going to march right over to Zuzu and go nya-nya. I might share my cool prizes with her and Oscar -- poor peons -- but I haven' t decided yet. I'm too excited!!

I'll get some free 9Lives fud, some Quirk books, stuff from Arm and Hammer, and I'm even going to be a Shutterfly Calendar Cat...eventually.

Best of all, my people really love me.
