Just a little update

I go to the V-E-T this weekend. He's going to tell me to loose weight. I know it! I'm a big kitty, always there with Sarge when he eats except I don't get sick at times. Things are pretty normal. I love getting pets when Daddy gets dressed and he has to keep me away from his clothes or else I'll put holes in them with my claws (another thing the V-E-T will have to do since I won't let Daddy trim them).

I still hate being picked up. Daddy tried to hold me last week and I mewed like a kitten and my ears went back in fear. Oh poor me! I wonder if I'm still a bit feral since I hate being held and I eat like it's going to be taken away from me. Lena's a stray too but she loves being held and is confident there will always be food for her.

Hooray I'm a daily diary pick! That just leaves Lena for being chosen. Heh heh

Anyway since I am a DDP I'll answer the questions asked by everyone about the cow kitty. We don't see many kitties out here. This is only the second one. The other one lives across the street where we can't see him. Since this is only the second kitty we saw in 5 years of living here and since there are sightings of coyotes several times a year we don't put out food. If the local doggies don't get it, the racoons or birds or squirrels or whatever will. The odds of a kitty eating the kitty food outside is too small to bother. But if the kitty comes back, Daddy may change his mind.

Daddy liked his first day at work. He worked there before as a consultant seven months ago and many people remembered him. There was work to do and things to fix. It was nice to be back. But he's gone almost 11 hours! I liked it better when he worked close and didn't have to take the train.

Oh, Daddy put out some scraps of prime rib he brought back from Catmas dinner with his human family. Yum yum!


Merry Catmas Too All!

I've been doing OK. If you want to know what's been going on, check out my sib's diaries. Daddy wants to get at least one more entry for me by year's end. He got back from visiting his family for Catmas. We missed him, Sarge most of all. I was excited to see the neighbors come over. I loved the attention.

Tonight I saw something outside and I went to get Sarge. He hissed at me and ran to hide. Daddy saw outside the window was a big cow kitty. He made sure we were away from the door and went out to try and catch him but he ran away. Daddy saw it was big like me so hopefully he had a home. We didn't want him around. It's hard enough getting quality time with Daddy when there are three of us. We don't want another kitty!

Still, no one should let their kitty outside on a night like this. There's no snow yet, but it's cold. We hope that kitty will find his way home or at least to a safe and warm spot. It's still Catmas time, no one should be in need like this. :(


Well that didn't turn out as planned

Daddy had two different groups of friends over during the weekend. I was going to show them what a good kitten I can be so they'd know I wouldn't knock over anything. It didn't go too well. I jumped up on the table to sniff around and pushed the glass bowl of cookies near the edge. We stopped it before it got too close. Then when someone spilled a drop of hot sauce I went over to try it. Ahhh!! HOT HOT HOT!! I ran away as fast as I could and everyone laughed! Stay away from red sauce kitties!

That was on Friday. Today I sat down on some books to sniff the new people. I only met them once before and I wanted to check them out. Well in my sniffing I pulled down a bag on the floor and spilled out a few things. It wasn't a big deal, but it didn't convince anyone I wouldn't knock over a glass again.

Oh, Daddy gave me treats for being his fall-cat. It shouldn't happen again, but at least I got yummy noms from it.


Daddy lied about me!

*sniff* I'm so hurt. Last Friday Daddy was going to go visit his friends. He said he would bring this raspberry soda to share. But he was running late and forgot about it. Do you know what he told them? He said that *I*, sweet Pepi, knocked the case off the table and some of the bottles cracked and that was why he was late. I did no such thing! He *forgot*! That wasn't the worst thing though. What really hurt is that everyone believed him! No one stuck up for me and said, "No, Pepi is a sweet cat and wouldn't knock anything off the table." OK, maybe I did knock over a glass once and maybe it did spill on an autographed book. But I can't knock over a 4-pack of soda right? Well I can - but I didn't! It's not fair! They're coming here soon so I have to show them what a good cat I am so they'll realize the truth.


I was scared!

We got a brief shower giving us relief from the heat. Daddy went out to walk in the rain and came in when it started thundering. I was at the door begging to go out. He thought I'd just run out see it was wet then run back in like Sarge does. No! I ran to the woods and Daddy had to chase me (which made it worse). So there he his in his slippers lounging around clothes in the pouring rain looking for me. The neighbors heard him calling my name and said I ran under their kiddie pool. They opened the patio door and lifted it up and I ran inside. He picked me up and held me tight to take me home. It was necessary since I hate being held and I was fighting to get down. I was so scared of the rain and thunder. When the door home was opened, I sprang out of his arms and hid upstairs. Daddy got some scratches and I think I put holes in his favorite t-shirt.

I'm sorry Daddy. I was scared of the thunder and getting wet. I won't be allowed outside again, even on my harness, for a very long time.


Outside :)

This morning I was begging to go outside again so Daddy forced me to wear this harness and all of us went outside. Lena was at the door asking to go back in after a minute. I crouched low to the ground and started exploring. Daddy kept a good watch on me and soon I was in the grass taking in the smells. I was so calm Daddy even brushed me for a while outside. I loved it. I even begged to go out again later. After much meowing, Daddy relented and put my harness back on (I didn't fight as much this time) and we went out again.

This time the neighbor's doggie came by and I was scared. We played together before but now I didn't want to. It could have been the harness or because I was getting used to being out. Daddy was sad because I was friends with the doggie but not anymore it seems.

So now I'm going outside too occasionally. Daddy would rather everyone be indoors only but we love outside so much! Don't worry. Sarge stays in one place most of the time and I won't go out without my harness. We have a small yard facing the woods and away from the street. We'll be OK.


Outside :(

Today when Daddy was in the front lawn trying to decide where to transplant some of the plants with Sarge, I wanted to go out too. He got to do it a lot and I was curious. So Daddy opened the door and I carefully stepped out. Daddy watched me as I stepped on the mulch then the concrete stairs. But I didn't like it and went back inside when he opened the door. I don't get why Sarge likes it so much.

Daddy's glad I don't like going outside. You see when Sarge goes out, Daddy has to pick him up and carry him back in and I hate being picked up. If we had to go back inside quickly in case of an emergency, I would panic.

So I'm done being curious. At least until next time.


Whew, dodged a bullet

There was a close call here recently. One of Daddy's sci-fi friends will be getting chemo next month. She has four cats and four cats make a whole lot of newmies that have to be cleaned up. Since it lowers a human's immune system they were going to find temporary homes for 3 of her kitties until she gets better. Daddy offered MY home for one of the kitties. He did warn her about how I feel about strange cats, but it would only be for a while.

Well the good news is that her doctor informed her that she can keep all four of her cats at home provided someone else clean the litter box. Fortunately she has a husband and neighbor to cover that department. So no new kitties around here! She sent a message to me telling me how awesome Daddy is for offering though. You bet he's awesome. That's why I picked him and refused to let myself be adopted by anyone else.


Thank you

I want to thank all my Catster friends, too many to name here, for their birthday wishes and gifts. I had a good day. I got to play with the moving dot and treats and pets.

Sarge and I went to the vet this morning. The ear infection is gone and I lost an ounce. I do have a scab where I scratched my ear so badly I hurt myself. But it's healing nicely. Best part is that I don't have to take that yucky stuff in my ear any more!
