Arrival Story: We brought Pixie home on Saturday, June 28th. My husband had gone to the pet store the week before and told me that a rescue organization had an abundance of kittens, so I went to see them the following week. Mary, who also fostered Pebbles and Joy, asked me to take Pixie (then named Connie) home for a week to foster her. Yeah, right! Mary thought she was using psychology on me. After playing with the kittens for a couple of hours, I went home and casually told my husband about my time with the kittens, how Pixie had unique markings, and what Mary said. He then mentioned that Quincy, our dog, chewed and broke his retractable leash during their walk, so now we had an excuse to go back to the pet store! They waived the adoption fee since they knew us, but we left them a donation in their jar anyway.
Bio: Pixie and her mama and brother were pulled from a kill-shelter when the kittens were three weeks old. Her brother has been adopted but her mama, a gray tabby with white paws, is still with Mary. She was about 10 weeks when we got her so we gave her the birthdate of April 15, 2008. Tax Baby!
Mom told me that she was talking about us with a couple of friends during a retirement pawty today. Gessh, she pawties and gets paid for it? I want her job.
Anyway, one of the friends had just seen our pages for the first time yesterday. The first question she asked Mom was why one of her cats was climbing the window. Mom knew she was talking about me. MOL!
Mom told her she really had no idea except that I probably thought it was a good idea at the time.
If you've read Riley's diary, you'll already know that he and Huey won a photo contest. We're looking forward to finding out what their hard work bought us. A special shipment is coming on Monday!
Thanks to everybuddy for stopping by to honor my Gotcha Day today! It's always nice to hear from you!
We're having some new pictures taken today, so I was in the computer room with Mom while it was Enzo's turn. One of the shutters to the window behind Mom were open and I was getting bored so I decided to make some noise!
Mom turned around to find me trying to climb up to the wood valance above the window like a crazy cat! I was too high up for Mom to grab me and I was unsuccessfully trying to climb to the top of the valance over and over.
All Mom could do was hold the shutter still and encouraged me to carefully jump down but I was being stubborn. She captured a few photos of me until I finally gave up, carefully climbed back onto the top of the shutter and then jumped all the way down to this little cat tree and sat in it.
Even though Mom added a new main photo of me yesterday, she forgot that today was going to be my birthday. What do you think the punishment should be?
Thank you to my wonderful friends for leaving me presents and messages! It's hard to believe I'm four years old already, but I'm still the baby of the family. Huey doesn't count!
After a few rainy days, this weekend has been filled with sunshine, so we're all having a good time sitting by the open windows and finding those nice sunspots. Ahhhhhh.......
The motion-activated camera we have on the front porch has been recording interesting visitors, aside from the people who drop off packages at our front door. We've seen spiders spinning webs, birds, a raccoon, and a few different cats! They don't get invited into the house because we all know they'd get beat up. MOL
