Arrival Story:
my dad saw him at a friend's house just a few days after he was born. dad instantly fell in love. mittens is so unique, from his appearance to his personality. when my dad talked to him when the kitten was older, he looked at my dad. whenever anyone was talking, mittens would look at them. he's still that way, but since he knows his name, it's usually only to that. one day, on our way home from my grandparents', mom and i decided to get him from the farm he was at. the owners had held him back from another family because they didn't want the other people to have him (they didn't think the other family would take care of him right, they took a different kitten from that farm, and their dogs killed it. then they expected the farm owners to give them another) mom and i got him, took him home, and proceded directly upstairs to give him a bath. we thought he was brown and tabby, wrong. after his first bath, we discovered he was INFESTED with fleas. we spent about 2 hours bathing him, by the time we were done, the water was very red. we spent another 30-45 minutes picking dead fleas off him from the flea shampoo. he was lethargic, and when i told the vet two days later, they said he was almost anemic. we saved his life because of that, and i couldn't be happier we got him.

i am a half manx mix. my daddy was a purebred manx, while my mommy was a mix (both still living, at last update). i am a polydactyle through my mommy, and it shows on all four of my paws. i was also nuetered at six months old.

we got about 8 inches of snow overnight. i'd like to know what you guys got along the lines of weather. rain? snow (how much)? nothing? sleet? i'd like to know! we're also supposed to get more snow, but not much. it's supposed to stay below 30F until Sunday, at the earliest. the most snow we got in Indiana was 12.8 inches. but don't know where that is. the Indianapolis International Airport got 12.5 inches. that's alot of snow! i got to play in it. :) but now what?


vet trip!

i go to the vet tomorrow!!! i can't wait. all the people, animals, colors, and other activity, it's so exciting! i like going, i get to explore the table and counters. i just don't like the pricks and poking, they hurt. but i like to see the people and traveling. i wish we could do cat shows. but the closest location is over an hour away. :( oh well, maybe my people will take me if they move after the apprentice is gone. i like the people and animals. it's so nice, to see so many people and get petted and cuddled! i bet it would be even better at a cat show. anyway, vet tomorrow! shadow got out the carrier for me, it's cozy. i like it.

it's been really cold lately, i haven't been out for a couple days. right now, it's -11F. so cold -shivers- Bear doesn't like it either, i think it hurts her bones. Harley is getting impatient, too. it's so cold, he's had to use the litter box. tomorrow, it's supposed to be below zero again. brrrr, it makes me cold thinking about it. i feel sorry for any cat stuck out this leaf-bare. hope you all had a good week and have a good weekend!
