I Knew It!

Now that I have a new sister named Pixie, whom I haven't met yet, all I can say about my last diary entry is:




Are 9 Cats and 2 Dogs Enough?

June 21st 2008 8:32 pm

Dad went to the pet store today to buy more canned food for us. As soon as he came home I overheard this conversation:

DAD: It's a good thing you didn't go because they had alot of kittens there today.

MOM: Really? I want to go see!

DAD: Well, you can go see and give them a donation or something but you can't bring anymore cats home.

I've heard "that" before. And yeah, Dad, give Mom a reason to go see the kittens. Why didn't you give them a donation?

MOM: Like how many were there? What did they look like?

DAD: There were alot, probably a dozen or so. Different kinds, with long and short hair.

MOM: Maybe I'll go see. No, maybe not.

DAD: Yeah, you probably shouldn't.

Mom spent the next hour talking herself out of going and she didn't. Why did Dad tell Mom anyway when he knows that she knows that the rescue place is there every Saturday? They're in a separate room at the pet store and he could have easily shopped for our food without stopping to look at them himself, and he also stopped to look at the dogs that were available for adoption.

Well, we know all those kitties and doggies are currently safe in their foster homes.



Boo-Boo on My Nose Again!

The last time I wrote about a mysterious boo-boo on my nose was in January. Now I have another one!

Sometimes when I want to be alone, I crawl under the dresser. I am the only one who can fit under there. Enzo has started to lay down on his side and swat at me while I'm under there, otherwise, he never does that when I am out and about. That's how Mom thinks I got a boo-boo on my nose.

I have an idea, we'll send Enzo back to the house a few doors away where he was born! No, I don't think Mom will like that. I think he's just jealous that he can't fit under the dresser and also because he likes to wrestle with the girls in the family, and I don't wrestle!

I wonder if this will excuse me from the next photo session that Mom has planned for us. Probably not. She'll just have to hire a good make-up artist.



Paws, Purrs, and Chicken!

I'm still sleeping with Mom at night, but for the first time while I was under her arm, I stretched my paws out and tapped her on the face and smelled her.
Since this is the only time she can get really close to me, she loves hearing my purr, which she never gets to hear otherwise. I even let her move me around while I'm there if she needs to.

Mom wishes she could hold me more during the day, because it would sure make it easier for her when I have to go see the vet. But, she may have to wait another year before I'll let her do that easily.

We haven't had boiled chicken breast for months because of the treats we've been getting, but today Dad announced that he was boiling chicken! That's much better than the treats!



It's My Birthday and I'll Scream if I Want to!

This morning I was upstairs with my Dad and let out a blood-curdling scream! Mom was downstairs. Dad told Mom that all my brother Reebok did was look at me like he wanted to pounce on me and I screamed. You would scream too, if you only weighed 7lbs and you had a brother that weighs 20+ pounds who looked like he wanted to pounce on you.

Dad made Reebok leave the room. It pays to be small and shy because you always get protected and can never do wrong. That's how Mom and Dad treat me, anyway. Besides, it's my birthday, and I think I'm allowed to be a Drama Queen today, or every day for that matter!

Thank you to all of my friends who celebrated my 4th birthday with me today! Our family has great friends, and each of them are special to us.

I also want to mention *TINKER*, who added a primary picture of him on his page dressed up for my birthday!! Thanks Tink!



Happy May 1st Birthdays!

I almost escaped celebrating my 4th birthday on Catster this year. Mom was not planning to making a birthday page for me, and she definitely wasn't going to try to put a hat or anything else on me for that matter. She just felt I should be left alone and I couldn't have agreed more, but this morning she decided to try taking pictures of me without wearing anything and thought I took a nice picture so she put a birthday page together for me.

So... now I'll be shyly celebrating my 4th birthday on May 1st, along with COUSIN HAZEL LUCY, who will be 11. She's like the celebrity Angelina Jolie. I'm not taking the celebrity test because you can't be a shy celebrity, so I'm sure there's no match for me.

Our good friend KASHMERE is also celebrating her 7th birthday on May 1st. Her family knows how to party, so I know it's going to be fun at her house!

Happy Birthday to all May 1st kitties!



Silly Sofie

Mom is calling me Silly Sofie now. I have been sleeping in the guest bedroom on the sofa bed in the early evenings until I see Mom walking by on the way to the master bedroom. She stops at the door to the guest bedroom and says "Come on, Sofie" and I stand up, stretch, and with my eyes half closed, jump off the sofa bed and trot to the master bedroom. I wait for her to get in the bed and then I jump up and sleep on her right side just like I've been doing for about a month, and stay there all night. This is about the only time she can really hear my purr!

During the day, I am back to being shy! Oh, I come around to eat, go out in the yard with the others, and rub against Mom's or Dad's legs to tease them, but if they look like they're coming to pet me or pick me up, I run, unless they're eating something good like steak!



The Next Best Thing

I've been sleeping next to Mom on her right side, and right side only, every night since I wrote my last diary entry on the 13th! That side is usually claimed by Reebok, but he's been good about letting me have his usual spot and sleeping at the foot of the bed instead. When some of the others jump on the bed, they always look at me real funny.

Mom believes I would not be sleeping with her if Milo were around and she is probably right. Guess she's the next best thing.



Bedtime Stories Part III

I slept next to Mom all night last night! It only took me three years to try it and it wasn't as bad as I thought! I started under her right arm and she made sure none of the others were going to push me out of my spot. When I stood up a few times to change positions and then curled right back up next to her, she had a good feeling I was staying. Sure enough, when she woke up this morning I was still there. But then I knew it was time to get up and have breakfast so I jumped off the bed.

I have to decide whether I'll sleep with Mom regularly or not. I don't want her to think she can start picking me up and carrying me around the house. I may not be ready for that until next year!

Oh, and we received a surprise package yesterday from TINKER and family for Valentine's Day! There were all kinds of toys, cards for each of us, and even stuff to wear! Mom will try to take some pictures of everything today. Thanks, Tink!



Bedtime Stories Part II

I surprised Mom again last night. We have a rectangular bed on the couch in the family room that is like a pad. It was put there for us kitties to hang out on while Mom and/or Dad are watching TV. Mercy and Pebbles love to knead on that bed together!

When Milo was here, he used to hang out on that bed and I would curl up really close to him and take naps. Mom was watching TV last night and I jumped up on the bed and starting rubbing up against her and staring at her, so of course she started talking to me and petting me. Before she knew it, I plopped down next to her and started kneading her and the bed and fell asleep against her. Mom cannot remember the last time she ever saw me kneading anything or anybody, let alone sleep against her. She was frozen for the next hour or so until she had to get up! By then, Mercy and Pebbles were on the bed so I sandwiched myself between them.

This may not sound like a big deal to most kitties, but it is a big deal for me. While I rub against my brothers and sisters and Mom's and Dad's legs, I typically sleep alone these days. I do play and it's not that I hide in the house; I am just somewhat skittish, so sometimes it takes months to a year for me to exhibit a new positive behavior. Patience! Always a good thing when it comes to me.
