Black and White

Going in the refridgerator, escaping from the apt, snuggling under the covers, wrestling with or chasing Marty, watching people take baths, sniffing shoes, nibbling on legs under the covers, paper bags & cardboard boxes

Getting pulled out of the fridge, falling in the bathtub while spying on people, getting caught while escaping the humans

Favorite Toy:
String-type things, especially when on clothes or people, laser pointer, feathers on a string, paper bag, straw on a string

Favorite Nap Spot:
Under the futon, in a file organizer (its too cute!!), on the keyboard, in the cat tree, on top of cabinets/fridge, in the "butt divet" on the futon, on the footstool, in bed

Favorite Food:
Plain yogurt, Greenies, LETTUCE & SPINACH, boiled chicken, Wellness Foods, Purina Pro Plan Seafood (they got me hooked on it at the ER!)

Entertaining himself with a non-moving toy, leaping like a kangaroo, burrowing, senses food from the other room, knows his name and the words "breakfast" and "dinner", escape artist


Arrival Story:
We adopted Oliver with his brother Martin from the Humane Society. They were adorable and friendly and it was too painful to separate them. They love being together in their new home. Oliver looks strangely similar to my parents' old Cat, C-Kitty, but is considerably less moody. We joke that maybe he is the nicer reincarnation of C-Kitty. Ollie is nuts. He is going to be the death of us.

Ollie is the sweetest, softest little kitty you will ever meet. Pat him on the head and he's purring away. He loves to cuddle and knead the covers. He usually doesn't make any noise when he talks to you, unless he is sure there is food involved, and then he has this bizarre raspy little voice. He is starting to meow more; sometimes he sounds like a dog barking. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ After a long, slow deterioration and many, many health problems, we helped our little baby to the Bridge at 5pm on Wednesday, June 20, 2007. He was only a little over three years old but in his short life he brought us so much happiness.

Things I Love About My Mom:
(1) She always made a spot for me on her desk, no matter how busy she was. (2) She made up songs for me and would sing them all the time. (3) When I went blind, she would hold me and say "it's ok, I'm right here. You're ok." (4) She gave me and my brother a home together for nearly three wonderful years. (5) She would feed me yogurt and let me lick it right off her finger, which is the way I like it best. (6) She makes awesome kitty forts.

Seven Months & First Xmas at the Bridge

Sigh... Poor Mumsy - its been a really hard year for her. I wish I could be with her and make her feel less sad.

I've been at the Bridge for seven months now - I think it got easier for Mums for a while but then other things started going badly and then it got harder for her to miss me so much.

This is her first Christmas without me since I was adopted. That is really tough for her - I remember how we all were together at grandpawrents house for the last two. I was so scared to be in a new place, I mostly just hid the first year. I got stuck in the ceiling - twice! - and stayed in the basement mostly. The second year everyone was prepared and I didn't get a chance to get stuck in the ceiling - too bad! And I was more used to grandpawrents' house - I even came upstairs and birdwatched by the glass doors with Marty - grandmaw sent a nice picture of that to Mumsy recently, but she had to warn Mumsy that it was coming. Mums cried anyway but she was so happy to have the picture. It is still hard for her to look at pictures of me. I know that doesn't mean she loves me any less though - sometimes its just too hard for humans.

I miss you Mums, but I am not lonely or starved for presents - its a constant party at the Bridge and Xmas is OVER THE TOP! Sandy Claws is coming soon and he's going to be extra special good to all the kitties who are spending their first Xmas at the Bridge. I will try to get away from all the festivities and give Mums a secret snuggle though, just so she knows how much I love her!


Two Months At the Bridge - I Miss You Ollie!

Hi Ollie - Tomorrow will be your two-month anniversary at the Bridge, as I'm sure you know. It seems like I miss you more every day. I was looking at some photos of you and Marty that are on my phone while I was riding the bus to work and I almost started crying right on the bus.

Your little sister Mischa who you sent to us is putzing around the desk as I write this - trying to attack the cursor and stuff. She also tries to attack the TV if something is moving on it. I think she is adjusting ok and Marty is finally getting used to her. She is giving him a regular workout every day and he is starting to chase her back. :)

I just wanted to let you know that we are all thinking of you and missing you. I can't believe you have only been gone for two months. It seems like we have gone through a year's worth of changes since you went to the Bridge. Sometimes I feel so guilty about everything - I feel like I should have noticed your appetite loss sooner - maybe things would have been ok if I had. I know that is silly and I know that we did everything possible to help you get better - FIP just isn't curable ... but it feels so unfair. I know that you are happy and safe at the Bridge, playing with all your friends, but I still wish that you were here with me.

Missing you so much,
Mums & the family


I Sent My Family A Kitten!

Her name is Mischa and she is a tabby (brown, black, white and grey) and she is gorgeous and sweet and nuts! She already is in love with Marty and I know that he will love her too, once he gets used to her.

She is teething right now and always bites mumsy and popsy's fingers when they pet her and she gets too excited. She purrs like a motorboat!

I am so glad that I could help mums and Mischa meet each other. I know that I will always have a special place in Mumsy's heart and I know that she still misses me a whole lot. But they needed a little spitfire to cheer them up and to get Marty running around again. And little Mischa needed a great home to go to.

I might not be writing a lot of diary entries for a while now. I am pretty busy having fun at the Bridge and watching over all my human and feline charges that I have undertaken to protect. Plus it is so hard for mums to type for me here now. It just makes her cry all the time. But I will still be lurking a lot and I'm sure I will be speaking up at pawties and in the forums.

I don't know if all my Catster friends will automatically become Mischa's Catster pals, so I'm asking that all my buddies, especially my Bridge buddies, please become MishMish's friends once mums gets her page up and running!
