Arrival Story:
In 2007, late August, we had some reeeealy terrible thunderstorms. I mean floods in the streets, lights knocked out everywhere. The family who found my Ko told me this: Mary, a woman my mother works with, was at home with her daughter the night of one of those terrible storms. When her daughter said to her that their cat was wanting inside. Odd, said kitty was in fact INSIDE. Well, low-and-behold, there was a tiny kitten tapping on the back patio door. Soaked from ears to tail. They took her in. Dried her off. And put her in a cage that was inside their garage (for fear that she wouldn't get along with their resident dogs and cats). The poor little thing spent a week in that garage until her existence was brought to my attention. She was promptly brought over to my house and quickly became my best little buddy. :-) She's like a child to me. Spoiled like crazy, but I love her dearly. This all occurred when she was all of two months old. Now, Ko is 2 years old!!!

Ko-chan seems to hate other animals. She never seemed to warmed up 100% to Rakki, even during the 9 months that she was with us. Ko is a one-person cat. And proud of it. Pouncing at 90 miles/hour if not feed first thing in the morning! Leaping to the top of the tele in a single bound! She's black... no she's white! Her tail is crooked! She's... Super Ko-chan!!

Touch Lights... A Reflection

Mommy has a touchlight lamp in the bedroom. When I was reeeal young I figured out how to turn it on with my nose! I do this to wake Mommy up in the morning when I want gooshy food. Well, Mommy has found a new use for the touchlamp... One that gives me a little tingle!! It was innocent enough, I swear! I was just laying on the lamp. Enjoying the heat it gave off. When BEEP! Mommy got my nose. And suddenly, the light turned off! O__O Scarry!!! Then, Mommy did it again. BEEP! The light turned on. Low. Then BEEP! The light went to medium. Then BEEP!! The light turned on to high. Then BEEEP! once more, and the light turned off. At this point, I decided it was best that I not sleep under the lamp...


Yippie! (an owner's revelation)

An excerpt from the Cat Owner's Manual:

"Head Rubbing: Cats' faces contain scent glands that they use to mark their territory. When a cat rubs its face determinedly against its owner, it is both displaying affection and "marking" that person as its exclusive property."

I am EXCLUSIVE PROPERTY!! I couldn't be more proud!! ^____^
