Gray and White

Treats, kisses, sitting on whatever I'm working on at the moment

being held, children, being antagonized.

Favorite Toy:
her plush carrot and sparkly craft pom-poms (large ones)

Favorite Nap Spot:
middle of the guest bed (it's "Her" room)

Favorite Food:
Meow mix with a appetizer of healthful life blend

she can sit, stand on her back feets and balance a treat on her nose.


Arrival Story:
Tipper was born to litter of kittens at a friend of mine's. She was about 3 months old when she crawled up into the peoples pick up truck under the hood. They didn't know she was in there and drove off somewhere. They found her in the driveway when they returned and beat up and bloodied. She had been gashed up by the fan blade. she had two gashes on her head, half her whiskers missing and a few cuts elsewhere on her body. They took her to the vet to get her patche up and stablized. She was brough back home and her ma-ma wouldn't have anything to do with her because she smelled like vet and not her baby. Tipper wouldn't/couldn't eat solid or wet food, was having seizures, blind and somewhat paralyzed on her left side. she would just walk in little right directioned circles and then fall and cry and sometimes seize a little. I suggested that they buy he some Catmilk. the stuff that is Whiskas brand in purple cartons. We gave that to her in bottles and gave her cat massages and warm towel baths and she improved dramamtically. When my husband and I got married about 6 months later we aksed if we could adopt Tipper as our first fur-child. and so now she lives with us and is perfectly happy and healthy..a little goofy at times. but happy and healthy.

TIpper likes treats and she has been trained to do some tricks. She will sit, stand up on her back feet, and balance the treat on her nose before noshing on it. She does not like being held...she doens't mind sitting on your lap (if it's her idea), but to be suspended in the air is not her cup of tea. She likes to sleep on top us at night. If we lay n our tummy she will sleep on our bum. She gives kisses constantly with her cold, moist nose and refules that nose by drinking out of the bathroom sink, letting the water drip over her head and getting her whole face soggy. She does not like to drink out of a regular bowl. Her current favorite toy is a plush carrot. She sees things in the basement and yodels at them and then dashes upstairs with her tail all puffy to tell us all about it.

the new little buggers are here. mummy let me sniff them through the carrier and I was cautious and curious and then a little annoyed. I hissed ligthly at them then sat down and folded my paws and murgled a little under my breath. Mummy then took the new kitties downstairs to their own room (hah they get thir own roon, well I get the whole house!) And now they're napping. Boy do they smell! They came from a auto shop garage so they are all dirty and greasy. Mummy is gonna give them a bath after they wake up. I feel a little sorry for the Cow looking one, he was scared and went wee on himself a little bit. The calico, Bahji is a little Pig-Piggy-McPigerson he's had two meals scince they got here and it's only been two hours! i dont know how well I'll get along with these new little ones. Mummy is gonna keep them in their own room until they've been given their shots and flea bathed and de-wormered. Mummy loves me so much, keeping them outa my fur untill they're for-sure healthy so that I dont get sick. Purrs!

Mummy syas thta there's to be some newcomers tomorrow...two of them, and they're gonna STAY! I'm not so sure about this, I mean I"M supposed to be the only cat around here, why should they need more? Maybe I'll just ignore them and grumble uner my breath like I do with the outside cats. Just as long as the little bits dont jump on me or try to take MY food or MY litter pan or take my peoples attention away from ME when I want it.
Newcomers are apparently called Cow and Bahji...Cow looks like a cow and Bahji is orange and grey patchy calico stripes and patches.

we'll see how this all plays out, stay tuned for hopeful hilarity and no tradgedies.

God made laps for sitting on. it doens matter if the person is working on something at the moment. Tipper is compelled to sit on laps when they are working on something, if they're just watching TV it's no big deal, but if they're working on something (like writing a diary entry) she MUST help. Upside is she keeps my lap warm and provides kisses and snuggles between sentences. She also insists on helping with projects. I've found her sitting on the dress I'm making a couple times...resulting me having to sticky-roll off all the fuzz she leaves behind. Sh'es just making sure the dress doens't run off anywhere. maybe I should use the scraps to make her a matching cat-dress.
