Likes: He loves to play; invents his own games; jumps & wrestles with Sampy; steals stuff
Pet-Peeves: I believe this cat likes everything except for nail trims.
Favorite Toy: Mousies, feathers; crinkle butterfly; pom-pom balls; cat teasers; any toy with catnip inside.
Favorite Nap Spot: the windowsill perch
Favorite Food: chicken, Fancy Feast (any flavor) and Purina One dry food
Skills: he sings beautifully - breeps and trills
Arrival Story: A week ago I noticed him on my back porch pillaging some of Cammie Rose's food. At first he was skittish and when I offered him some chicken, he has been my friend ever since. He's inside now and has a clean bill of health as of today. He's a mellow kitty and to top it all off, he's already been neutered. For some reason, he was abandoned and came to me. Word is out that I'm a cat lady and the strays know where to get food!
Bio: He already knows Cammie Rose and Sampy and the three of them were periodically hanging out on the back porch. He has a quiet nature and is very friendly. He's vocal when he's being fed and when I go into the cellar. He gives me nose kisses and headbutts. He loves mousies and pom-pom balls and throws them up in the air just like Yingy used to.

I can't believe it! I finally was able to log onto Catster without any "bad gateways" and 503 errors or cookies! I'm in and it feels good!
I'm still leary about changing my background though. You've heard of Christmas in July! Well, it's Christmas all year around according to many cats' backgrounds. Hopefully, the new owners can straighten out this soon!
Lastly, Mommy took a video of Merl and I on top of the cabinets over top of the 'fridge. You can see all of me but only the ears of Merl. We both were trying to be King of the Mountain. This video can be found on Mommy's FB page.
I'm going to cut it short as it's a windows open day (cooler temps) in the lower 80's) and I want to enjoy some sunbathing.
Also, I forgot to mention that I painted another Rembrandt while our sitter, Leila, was here on Sunday. She was very impressed by my talent and the Paint for Cats app Mommy has on her IPad. That pic went right over to FB when it was done.
Lastly, and most important, I will not only miss Mommy when she goes to Colorado, but also Sampy who will be staying at Dogs & Cats Hospital because of his health issues and all the meds he's on. It's going to be hard on me. I suppose I'll have to cuddle with Joss or Bail instead. Don't ask me to cuddle with Merl as we don't have any kind of bond. We either fight or tolerate each other.
Today is my day to shine in the diary limelight! Thank you a Diary Gal for honoring me!
I also thank my following friends or their gifts and concats:
1. ANGEL BUDDIE & Family pawsome pawmail;
2. ANGEL SMILEY CASSANOVA - pawsome pawmail;
3. PLATELICKER - cool blue rosette;
4. MAC & IVY - cute little bluebird.
Also, it's been very busy around here for Mommy as her vacation time is coming up soon. Leila, our cat sitter, came by to meet us yesterday afternoon. I made a very good impression as I gave her a lot of head bonks and wet nose rubs on her hands. Bail also made a good impression by letting her pet him a lot and kissing her hands. Old Sampy stayed in the room with all of us and looked up at Leila from the windowsill perch where he was sunbathing. Joss peeked at her from the top of the stairs and then ran. Silly Joss, introduces herself for a minute and then runs and hides with Merl under the red couch. At least she has a moment of bravery when it comes to someone else in the house. I don't think Merl will ever get over his fear/shyness. I don't think all the catnip in the world will help him push past those problems of his.
Anyway, it's time for bed. Thanks again everycat for your concats on my special day.
