Daddy was checking out the the success stories on Almost Home Foundation to cheer him up on a Friday afternoon and discovered my momma was adopted by a nice family last year. Her new family loves her very much and she's not afraid of people after all the abuse she suffered. We're all very happy for her. I wonder if she would recognize me after all this time. Would I know her (I get very angry when I see other cats apart from my sibs, it's why I never did well at the adoption shows)? Regardless it's great news. Her name is Snacks now, but she'll always be Precious Mama to us. I hope her family puts her on caster so we can be friends and we can check up on each other.

Thanks for everything Mama. Thank you , family for adopting her. We love all of you!!

 

Strange cat! Strange cat!

OK, it's just a normal morning for me, watching out the patio window, getting some sun when this big strange cat just comes up and rolls over RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME! He was black and white. Daddy has seen him around before over the years (he knows the cat is a him because he saw him spraying once). I couldn't believe it. I start going crazy. Get out of here! This is MY house! MINE! But he ignores me and continues sunning himself on the patio ledge in front of the window. Sarge and Lena noticed him and came over to help encourage him to leave. But he just ignores us. Daddy tried to settle us down and told us the kitty wasn't doing anything wrong. He went outside to pet the kitty and that's when that other cat ran away. There's rumors of a cougar in our city and Daddy hopes this other cat will be OK. I don't care as long as he stays away from me!

 

Kitty fountain

The kitty fountain came recently. Lena and I took to it quickly. Daddy saw Sarge drinking out of it tonight. Sarge says it's not as good as faucet water. But I don't like faucet water anyway. Sometimes Daddy puts ice cubes in the fountain. It makes the water cool and a neat sound.

Last Friday Daddy brought home a book case. It was fun to play on. I jumped up top and slept. When Daddy set it up I jumped into the lower shelves. It's nice to have something new in the house to play on.

It's been an interesting few weeks. First Daddy has his friends over. I got a few pets before knocking a drink on someone's books. He was mad and I had to stay away The next morning Daddy left to visit his human family for a weekend. The nice people with the dog came over and I got some wet food! Yummy! And I got to play with my friend again! Daddy gave us the rest of the food when he got home. Unfortunately two days afterward Sarge asked to go into the garage. He led everycat in for some fun. I loved it until I couldn't come back in. Daddy was very tired and busy and he forgot about us until the next morning. I can't believe he forgot about his three loving kitties! No wonder he slept so poorly that night! And that night he went to help out at the local sci-fi convention. He was gone for part of that night and most of Friday and Saturday and Sunday! We were so lonely! We stuck around him for days afterwards until things got back to normal. In the mean time I'm still sneaking drinks of milk from Daddy's breakfast bowl.

And some good news! Daddy is getting me a kitty drinking fountain! It should come in a week or so. Now I won't be hanging around the sink pestering Sarge. Daddy hopes I like it. It's expensive. And if I like it, my grandmeowmy might get it for her kitties. They're older than me so they need to take better care of themselves.

 

Checkin out the garage

Daddy let me in the garage a few times to explore. Lena and Sarge told me about it when I was still a foster. It's a cool place and I finally got to go in like the other kitties. I got to stay for a while. S&L returned to the house first. Daddy had to coax me back in. He checked on me a few times and I think he just wanted me in where he could keep an eye on me.

I still don't like being held but I think I'm getting used to it. I just have too much energy to be held down for a petting. Lena destroyed our feather toy so Daddy had to use one of my other toys to replace it. I like it better now. It's something I can grab, unlike that laser pointer (which is still fun). Sarge doesn't like to play much. I try and he'll run away.

 

I can feel the love!

Wow! What a great day being one of catster's DDP! I got a new friend request, a blue ribbon, and a star! The blue ribbon is from Buddy

You have been selected to receive a "Buddie's Well Wishers GANG Healing Rosette"--Given with prayers, love & well wishes from HUNDREDS of furfaces represented by this Rosette! We love you, Pretty Little Pepi!!

Thank you! My ears are getting better. I've been very good about letting Daddy put medicine in them. I also got a star from Timothy

"I was just reading your journal-- congratulations on finding a forever home with your foster dad! I kinda did the same thing-- my mommy took me home "just to nurse me back to health", but I talked her into letting me stay. Silly humans. smile"

Yep, we stick around a human for a while and they want to keep us. Sometimes you just know when you're home. Sarge realized it quickly. It took Lena a few weeks and now she wouldn't live anywhere else. I think Sarge and Lena needed some nursing too, but an emotional nursing. They needed to feel love again and to be save in a home. Now all three of us are together.

 

I'm DDP!

Hooray! I've been chosen for a DDP. Thank you everyone. My ear medicine is working out well. I don't fight Daddy much when he gives it to me and it seems to be doing its job. My ears look much better. Tonight Daddy is going to try and swab them out and check on the progress.

Daddy has also found a new way to tease me. He takes my favorite toy and tosses it on the table. As soon as I find out what he did, I jump up on the table and bring my toy back down. Then he tosses it back up again. He thinks it's funny. Well it is sort of fun to hunt down and grab my toy in light of a lack of living toys to hunt.

So things are pretty good here. I'm glad Daddy decided to adopt me before turning one year old. Every kitty should spend their birthdays in a loving furever home.

 

The Vet

Yesterday morning Daddy got out a cat carrier. It wasn't mine so at first I didn't pay attention to it. Then he got dressed and tried to catch me! Oh no! I thought I was staying here! I don't wanna go to the adoption show!! He caught me and put me in the carrier. As we drove away I got scared. Then I noticed we weren't making the usual turns to go to the adoption show and the trip was much shorter. He carried me into a building and into a small room with a counter. It smelled like other cats but I didn't see any. Daddy opened the top of my carrier and petted me. I was so happy this wasn't the adoption show so I purred.

Shortly a woman came in. She put me on a scale, poked around in my ears. I have a lot of dirt in my ears so she took a swab then left. I got to go back in my carrier. This was strange. No other kitties, no big huge scary building with dogs and noise, and only one stranger who was very nice. What was this.

Then a man came in. He was nice. He petted me, I rubbed up against his hand. The carrier I was in splits in two so I got to stay there on my kitty bed as he examined me. I didn't like some of it, but I kept reminding myself that it could be worse. He said I was very well behaved. I got some shots and he cleaned my ears. It felt nice when he was done. Then my carrier was put back together and we left. I did see one other kitty who I didn't like, but that was it. We went home.

Daddy said the man was my vet and I may have to go back in a few weeks if my ears don't get better. That won't be so bad.

 

More Gifts!

I want to thank the kittys who gave me presents to celebrate my adoption and birthday. First I got a star from The family of Martin(after StMartindePorres), Beloved Angel Amelia, Vincent, Hugo (in loving memory) and more! who said

"Hooray for your furever home!!! "

Then I got a yummy shrimp. But like the cake, shrimp go bad after about 30 days and has to be thrown out. The sentiment will last forever. It's from The family of Louis Armstrong, Emma Barrett, Benny Grunch, Pete Fountain who tell me

" SO glad you have adopted a Furrever Daddy.....you are such a cute kitty, no wonder he could not give you up.

Hugs,"

Thank you all so much! Since I don't smell like a pet store after the adoption shows anymore, the other cats don't fight with me as much. I did give Sarge a scratch on his nose. Daddy's not happy about that, but things happen and I'll be more careful in the future.

 

My first birthday!

What a weekend, my Foster Daddy became my Furever Daddy, I turned one year old, and tonight Daddy went to the Wheaton City Council so our vet, the College Station Cat Clinic, can expand to support their growing clientèle. I'm so proud, he was the first person that night to walk up and address the council. Four other people followed him. Sometimes all it takes is one person to take the first step. The measure passed unanimously by the way. Of course I won't be so happy when it's my turn to visit the vet...

Oh yes, I got a birthday cake from Binks! Thank you Binks! It only lasts a month before it gets fuzzy and starts growing and turning green (yuk) so it has to be thrown out. I'll save his message here:

"Welcome to your forever home. You've known the whole time this was where you were meant to be, didn't you? No more trips to adoption shows and more time to cuddle with your daddy at home. That and a lifetime of love ahead of you. Purr!!!!!"

That is so sweet Binks! Thank you!
