Neck-naked and Lovin' It

November 21st 2006 10:30 pm

Neck-naked? Yes, we had our holiday pictures taken a couple of days ago and Mom removed the collars off of the girls. She decided to leave them off to give our necks a break and could see how the fur around our necks were a bit matted. I feel like I've lost a few pounds. Besides, that new "dog" collar Mom bought me was too wide for little ole' me but I never complained as long as it didn't keep me from eating my chicken. It's been really nice to get those little finger scratches around my neck in places I haven't gotten them in a long time. If I had it my way, I'd never have to wear a collar or tag again but somehow I doubt it.

I've heard from Ziggy several times since he went to the Bridge. He is doing well and told me about the beautiful fish he's caught and how delicious they are. He also sleeps on a luxurious red velvet blanket.

Ziggy knows how much I can eat without gaining weight, so when I told him I was drooling over the fish he'd been eating, he wrote back and told me he'll send me a whale! I just hope it'll be cut up because I doubt a whale would fit in our house!



My Friend Ziggy Went to the Bridge 09/09/06

Ziggy passed away yesterday from a tick bite that paralyzed him. He was a very special friend of mine that lived happily in Australia. We would typically write to each other during late hours Catster time. Ziggy was always so upbeat and we would sometimes critique each other's pictures, talk about how he might find a "crush", and recently, how his Mom just bought a digital camera and was taking so many new pictures of him. I went into shock last night when I received the pawmail from him that he had passed yesterday. The letter was painful to read but was so endearing.

Ziggy will live on Catster forever as he will in the hearts of the family who loved him. I will be keeping in touch with him as he continues his life at the Bridge. Now we all have another Angel watching over us.



Where's Sofie?

Dear Diary,

Mom and Dad realized this morning that they had not seen me around waiting for my chicken fix. They started looking all over the house for me, under the bed, furniture, and behind closed doors. Then Mom took the cooked chicken out of the fridge and knew I definitely wasn't in the house when I didn't come running for some.

Dad went out to the backyard, since we get to play out there at least once a day, and worried that Mom had forgotten to check that I was in the house last night. Being a shy kitty, I am really not the type to venture out on my own. Dad started calling my name while looking over the fence in neighboring yards. We do have a Cat Fence-in containment system, but Mom went out to the front of the house anyway, and started looking for me in the bushes. Then she heard my tiny meow as I responded to her voice. She then realized I was still in the backyard so she went back and found me huddled behind a small storage shed, grabbed me, and brought me back in the house. I was so hungry but she gave me chicken right away and apologized.

What's with Mom? Has she forgotten how to count since we got my new baby sister, Joy? I think she should go sit in the corner with a dunce hat!



I Smell a Rat!

We have a lemon tree in the backyard and left some lemons unpicked. We've done that in the past, but this time I noticed something that I thought was odd. Every day, I'd look at the lemon tree through the window and would see one or two that were completely missing their skins but the remainder of the lemons would be hanging perfectly on the tree. This happened for a few days. At first I thought that maybe the squirrels were to blame until I actually caught a glimpse of a rat climbing the branches. I rubbed my eyes to make sure I wasn't seeing things until I saw it again through the leaves. Sooooo....I made a mad dash to tell Mom, who quickly went outside and picked all of the remaining lemons and disposed of them. We sure didn't think we had any rats in the neighborhood but we were glad to get rid of them from our yard, at least!

Back to my rat patrol duties....



My Dad

Some of the reasons why I think Dad is special:

1. Mom had her eyes on me at the adoption fair inside the pet store they shop at. It was my first time there. After Mom carried me for awhile, she handed me over to my Dad. When Mom asked Dad what he thought about adopting me, he quickly responded by saying, "I don't have a problem with it", and they weren't even planning to adopt a kitty that day nor had they previously discussed adopting one in the future.
2. Dad never yells and is patient. He knows I'm a shy kitty, so he takes care not to spook me in any way. It's paid off cuz' I just love to rub against his legs and will jump on his lap, especially when there's chicken or steak involved. Then he gets so excited when I'm on his lap that he'll quietly call out to my Mom to look.
3. Dad knows how much I love to chase the laser light, so when the others are trying to take over, he pretends that he's put it away so that they leave and then finds me so we can continue playing.
4. I got my nickname "Sofie Little" from my Dad.

I love my Dad!



Life is Good When There's Chicken

Dear Diary,

While Mom, Dad, and the dogs were away for four days this week, our neighbor Kim came to check on us several times each day. Mom warned her that I would probably run under the bed when she came over, since I am especially shy with strangers. She was right!

Kim always knew where to find me but would always try to talk to me while I was under the bed. On the second day, she decided to boil chicken for us, which is my all-time favorite! There she was, looking at me under the bed, and I could smell the chicken in her hand with my little nose. I stuck my head out, gently took the chicken from her hand, and went back under the bed to eat it. After she did that a few times, I decided she was a pretty cool human. She started seeing me out and about more often after that.

I was glad when Mom and Dad came home though. As soon as I heard Mom calling my name, I went running to her and haven't been under the bed since. Then I heard Dad calling me "Sofie Little" and started rubbing against his legs. That's when he knew that it was time to open the fridge to get me some more of that good chicken that Kim made for us.

Life is always good when there's chicken.

Little Meows,


My Birthday - May 1st

Today is my birthday and I have been having fun celebrating it with my Catster friends since this past weekend! I've eaten so much food, played so many games, and received the nicest presents, such as a day at the Kitty Spa, a gift certificate at PetSmart, clothes, toys, and flowers.

I had a nice steak and chicken dinner with my family tonight, and it was delicious! There are advantages to being a small kitty who can eat alot and not put on weight, so that I can get extra servings. After dinner, we had a big chase game going on around the house and made lots of happy kitty noises. Then we all had treats for dessert.

Thanks again to all my kitty friends for all your messages, fish treats, and lovely rosettes! I look forward to partying with you more the rest of this week!



Special Moments with my Dad

Dear Diary,

All the other cats and the dogs were sleeping while Mom and Dad were having dinner tonight. I jumped up on one of the chairs and sat nicely to watch them eat. Dad gave me bits of steak and it sure was good! I am one of the lucky ones who can eat alot (and I do) and not put on weight.

After dinner, I followed Dad to the couch to watch TV. I started rubbing up against him, purring, cooing, and flopping on my back. Dad was so thrilled he looked at my Mom in shock but kept petting me and talking to me. While that may not sound like a big deal to most people, it is a big deal. You see, I was very shy towards my Mom and Dad when I first came here. I was never mean but very skittish. They loved me just the same, always talking to me, and never forcing themselves on me. I went from running from them to running to them to rub against their legs. And, tonight, it was a rare moment for me to show Dad my affections in the way that I did.

Dad is still talking to my Mom about it, saying that he and I are the best of friends! Silly Dad, and being the ex-Marine that he is, he sure is a softie. Hey, softie, when you take away the "t", is Sofie! Maybe he and I really do have a special connection............



My Annual Check-up

Dear Diary,

Mom and Dad took me to see the lady in the white coat (vet) last Saturday for my annual check-up. I cried in the carrier because I hadn't been in it for awhile and didn't know what was going on. Good thing the car ride was short.

I was a little nervous in the exam room and didn't like having my temperature taken nor did I like being squeezed here and there, but I was much calmer as long as Mom was talking to me and I could lean against her. The good news is that I'm healthy and I still only weigh 6lbs!

As soon as we got home and the door to the carrier was opened, I flew upstairs and ran under the bed. I didn't come out for two hours but when I did, I got to eat chicken in a room all by myself without having to share. That was the best part of the day!

I wish every kitty good health and few visits to the vet's office!

Until next time...

Little Sofie
