Daddy's Home

Daddy was gone for a few days again. The nice people with the doggie came over and made sure we had food and water. I got a bag of catnip and went crazy! My sibs don't have the gene that makes nip so much FUN so I got it allll to myself. Last night (before I got the nip) they came over to talk and Sarge chased me outside. I stayed close to the house, scared. I didn't like it. It was very cold and dark. Daddy coaxed me back inside. (I hate to be picked up so we're very happy I came in willingly.) Later I got the nip and had fun. But Daddy is home again and all is right with the world.

You should check out my sib's diaries for an update about what's happening here. Not much has changed except I've discovered how good the wet food Daddy gives Sarge is. Now I force my way to the bowl and eat eat eat. Sarge grooms me until I stop to take a breath then he eats some. I let him for a little bit then I dive back in until I've had my fill. I also learned I like to sit in his lap when he's on the phone. He on the phone more often and sits in the easy chair when he's going to talk for a while. So I jump up for pets. Yep, took me over two years but I took my first step to being a lap kitty.

Daddy has also been trying to trim my claws. I'm slowly getting better about it. Meaning he can do two or three before I finally squirm free. It's also his birthday tomorrow.


A Pet's Ten Commandments

From today's COTD Zoey

1. My life is likely to last 10-15 years. Any separation from you is likely to be painful.
2. Give me time to understand what you want of ME.
3. PLACE YOUR TRUST IN ME. It is crucial for my well-being.
4. Don't be angry with me for long and don't lock me up as Punishment. You have your work, your friends your entertainment, but I have only you.
5. Talk to me. Even if I don't understand your words, I do understand your voice when speaking to me.
6. Be aware that however you treat me, I will never forget it.
7.Before you hit me, before you strike me, remember that I could hurt you, and yet, I choose not to bite you.
8. Before you scold me for being lazy or uncooperative, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I'm not getting the right food, I have been in the sun too long, or my heart might be getting old or weak.
9. Please take care of me when I grow old. You too, will grow old.
10. On the ultimate difficult journey, go with me. Please. Never say you can't bear to watch. Don't Make me face this alone. Everything is easier for me if you are THERE BECAUSE I LOVE YOU ALWAYS.


Two years at home

Two years ago today Daddy brought me home as a foster. I made him adopt me 6 months later.

Two years.... wow, doesn't seem like that long. About as long as Sarge and Lena were here before me. We've come to an understanding and get along as well as can be expected. Daddy didn't plan on having 3 cats but sometimes life works out better than you planned.

If you've been reading Sarge's blog you'd know Daddy lost that one job but found another one. He's been there 15 full weeks now, longer than before. And he's closer to home.

I've taken to sleeping next to his pillow at night. I still hate to be held. Daddy set up half a cat carrier with a knitted scarf inside for padding for everyone to sleep in. But it's a trap! When I'm in there he tries to trip my claws! He usually gets one done before I squirm away. But it shows. When I made biscuits on him last time it didn't hurt!

Two years... two happy years.


Vet trip!

I had to go to the vet with Lena. He was nice and let me stay in the bottom half of my carrier for the most part. I behaved myself and even purred a little. He said I was doing fine and I let him trim my claws. I didn't fuss at all even though I fight like a monster when Daddy tries it. It may be a regular thing; me going to the vet to get my claws trimmed. Wait, that's bad isn't it?

This is so awesome! Rosettes, a letter, new friends! Today is my day!

Daddy is in his third week at the new job. He leaves a little earlier and gets home a little later than before. He does seem happier now that things are back to normal. When he gets home I use the scratching post and he tells me I'm a good kitten. I'm going to be 2 soon. Isn't that pawsome?! I also like to sleep on Daddy's clothes when he changes out of his work clothes. Not much else going on. I like to sleep with Daddy when he goes to bed. I can stay there for a while until he moves and I wind up getting kicked off. He doesn't like it when I sleep between his legs. Live is good.

Except for one thing. Daddy doesn't want me jumping on the tables anymore. He has a squirt bottle. All he has to is reach for it and I get off the table and run.


Sad news about my fur family

Daddy did some more looking at the Almost Home Foundation. My biological sister Skeeter is still available for adoption. Worse, Dad mis-heard about what happened to me as a kitten. You see, originally Daddy thought Momma was abused while pregnant then rescued. But she was abused after we were born and I and my sister and brother had to watch a mean human bury our momma ALIVE! A kind human saved all of us and Almost Home helped my momma get better.

So as it turns out, I was a stray too. It could be why I don't like being held and have some different ways of showing affection. It doesn't change what's important though. It doesn't change that I'm in a loving and safe furever home.

Please, if anyone is in the far NW burbs of Chicago and wants a sweet cat, follow the link above. Skeeter deserves a good home. We're at the maximum number of cats here so we can't take her in. She turns 2 years old in 2 months. Don't you think that a loving home would make a pawsome birthday present?

Today Daddy's friend came over to help him trim my claws. I hated it. I mean H-A-T-E-D it. I ran around and fought as if I was going to an adoption show. I got wrapped up in Daddy's towel and he trimmed my claws while his friend held me. I still fought and he accidentally got my paw pad too! Ouch!! He feels awful about it, but I forgave him eventually. They got all my claws then I got a belly rub for a while. I hid for a while and now I'm better. Everything is back to normal. I hope I won't have to do this again for a very long time.

Well first I want to pay my respects to Calvin ~ Kneed On. It's been a few weeks, but Daddy has been busy. First he got a new computer which is quieter and has lights. It's also shorter which makes it hard to climb on.

The bad news is Daddy lost his job a few days ago. He promises he'll do everything he can to keep us together. His parents can help and there's some money saved. He's going to be stressed and I want to help him any way I can. We're a family and we'll get through this together.
