Quick Bio:

Seal Point

Trying to heal the world, being empathic to human feelings, obsessively cleaning himself and his pet cat, having his neck stratched, being brushed, giving kisses, playing "head butts"

Yelling, crying humans, when his pet cat is sick, when anyone is sad

Favorite Toy:
His palm tree scratching post

Favorite Nap Spot:
Chair in front of the front window

Favorite Food:
Shrimp, bacon

Playing his 'head butt' game, coming when he is called, understands two languages


Arrival Story:
I wanted a Siamese baby after my {Siamese} cat of 18 years passed. I adore Siamese cats and I went to a home that had a breeding pair. I met my baby when he was four weeks old. All the other kittens crowded around their mumma cat but Othello just kept walking back and forth between my (ex)husband and myself and looked up at each of us and just meowed. Then he cuddled next to me. I feel in love! A few days later I took him home at 5 weeks and he has been with me ever since. He was so small when I got him he could fit into a coffee mug!

Othello is a very special cat. He really does think he can heal the world -He tries to take care of everyone and he is rather empathic and feels what people (and cats) around him feel. Any time someone around him is upset he comes running into the room like "What's wrong, Oaffie's here, I'll fix it" - He licks wounds when you have a boo-boo and tears when you cry. Also, Othello has a 'pet' of his own. I brought home our other cat Chanel and told him that she was his "pet" - he looked up at me as if to say "thanks mom!" and he takes care of her to this day. If I tell him to 'give his cat a bath' he will start bathing her and he doesn't eat until she gets her food even if he was served first - he will even give up his food for her! {which is in keeping with the house rule of "the pets eat first" - because they are dependant and it is a cruelty to make them wait and watch while the humans eat}. He is very protective of her and will pine and worry if she has to leave without him.

Losing Chanel

After 13 wonderful years of companionship, my lifelong feline companion Chanel had to leave us in the early part of summer, 2008. Her illness came on suddenly and she didn't suffer long. She was very loved and is still very missed...
I miss her GREATLY.

Human-mumma and I knew we'd get a new cat, at some point... but 'somepoint' came sooner than either of us really expected.
Through circumstance, this little needy thing came to us. A 'medium haired' cat, who appears to be, in part, Maine coon. She has a bad eye, but we don't care... she's precious as she is! We named her Patchouli, most often... she just gets called 'Tru'.

So, now we have this 'little thing' who is quite cute and she's very nice and loving... but.. She STILL doesn't understand the way things work.
Human and I have a pattern and she's still figuring out how she fits in.

I am usually very tolerate of her, EXCEPT when she does certain 'things'. One thing I DO NOT like is when she tries to get into things that were Chanel's. I still use Chanel's 'bin', but I don't like for Tru to climb in there.

Human says no matter how much I look for her, I am not going to find Chanel in the basement (which is where I last saw her).

I trying to love Tru, but she can't, wont and doesn't take the place of Chanel. I love her for who she is none-the-less. Chanel was MY cat where as Patchouli is the new addition to our 'feline family'.


Oh... I feel like I know a celebrity... or something.

(Human-mumma just said "Celebrity by proxy, maybe")

One of my feline friends diary was 'diary of the day' yesterday - very exciting! It's extra special because my human-mumma know that cat in real life!

His name is Logan (you can find him under my friends, with his sister Tasa). Human-mumma says he's a very lovable cat.

In other news, human-mumma has been gone a lot lately. I hate when she's gone - I just hate it. When she comes home I am very loving, I am always afraid she isn't going to come back - may get eaten by a larger predator or something, I don't know! (and Human-mumma just laughed as I typed that...)
BUT! She always comes back with treats and love and cuddles and sometimes she DOES take us. Chanel likes to pretend she didn't miss her, but when Human-mumma comes back, Chanel follows her around and wont leave her alone. I like when Human-mumma takes us but I do not like that CAR thing! Also, when we go somewhere new, or to a hotel, Chanel acts like it is all HER place. I don't mind so much, I just like to see both Chanel and Human-mumma happy!

It has been a very sad week, there has been so much sadness.
Someone important died this week. I saw it on TV. I saw so many sad people - and I was watching the screen. Human-mumma finally came up and said "you can't heal the world Oaffie, stop petting the screen, they can't feel you Oaf." and took me away from the screen. I meowed at her and she said told me someone important died and kissed me. I just hate to see anyone so sad. I wish I could make them all feel better. Human-mumma says I am too "empathic" and I worry too much.

She looked into something called "life gems" again. Chanel wont admit it, but she is getting sicker and sicker and human-mumma is very worried about her and says now that we are getting older and Chanel sicker, there should be at least some thought.

Also, the kitten (human-mumma's mumma's kitten) feel off the roof - I don't even know WHY he got out the window or onto the roof, but they were very concerned. Silly baby doesn't know how to land on his feet, but! He seems ok now - maybe next time he'll know a little better!

EVENTFUL! But today seems quiet, I hope it stays that way!


My Human-mumma is Back!

My Human-mumma is back!

She went away for a little while - like she sometimes does. I don't mind the short weekends so much, but I don't like it when she is gone a long time.

However! When she does go away for a long time, she always brings us treats.
She brings back tins of rabbit cat food and HAM cat food (my fav!). I love when she brings those flavors! How is that they have such yummy cat food "over there" (she calls the place "The UK") but they don't have them here? Human-mumma says she would buy me them all the time; she even wrote the company once to see if they would ship those kinds to our house - but they had some reason they couldn't. Maybe she can find a place that will ship them to us? If she did that, then she would have to leave for so long to go get it!

I am glad she is back though, Chanel was sort of getting mean - I know Chanellie missed her, but she will never admit it - she likes to be 'tough' but I know Chanel looked for Human-mumma and cried while she was gone
