Arrival Story:
My boyfriend and I wanted a cat- so we went to Furry Friends at Petco in Fremont and adopted Bug. At the time she had one white whisker so the Furry Friends people called her "White Whisker". She soon lost that white whisker and now all her whiskers are black. I find a lot of her shed whiskers but never found the white one.

When I first came to live with my new family, I had ringworm- only they didn't know for about a week. My Dad noticed the lesion first and told Mom about it and she said "We will keep an eye on it." Then it was about the size of a dime. Mom has worked with animals her whole life so she knows a lot. She has even worked at vet clinics and raised orphan kittens! But she had to go on a trip and when she got back the ringwork lesion was about the size of a quarter- and she took one look at it and KNEW it was ringworm. Off to the icky vet I went. She had a culture made just to make sure it was ringworm and to try to find out exactly which type of ringworm is was. Sure enough- it was ringworm. So I got shots at the vet and had to be in quarantine in one of the bathrooms. I hated it. I got bathed all the time and had to have goop put on my neck where I had the lesion. I was still scared and not settled into my new home yet. For a while I thought my people were mean- but now I know they just didn't want me to reinfect myself, infect them or the dog so they had to contain the ringworm. After several treatments and three months of quarantine I was finally free of ringworm and was let out of the bathroom! I can hardly remember that now. Mom plans to put up a page soon about ringworm and how to deal with it.

Review: The Furminator

Mom got one of those really expensive Furminator grooming tools. I was not sure about it so she let me sniff it. Then she started brushing me with it and I LOVE it. It gets a TON of dead coat out and I just love being brushed anyway. Mom got so much coat out that she filled up the trash can! It was a small trash can but it seriously looked like she could make another cat.

So the Furminator gets an A+ from me and my Mom! We highly recommend it.


Everything is Shaking!

Ok- I thought the cousins visiting was bad. A couple of days ago- I was very happy and content, taking a nap on Dad and then everything started shaking! It was really scary. I dug my claws into Dad because I was afraid!

Apparently we had a 5.6 quake nearby and that is what caused it. I have felt small quakes but nothing like this! I hope that doesn't happen again any time soon! I like my naps uninterrupted!

The cousins are still here. I no longer hiss at them and have quit stalking them. But now that I want to be friends Willow doesn't want to be my friend. Do you think she is still mad at me for stalking her?

My home is invaded- by CATS!!!! It is horrible! Mom says they are my "cousins" but I don't want cousins. I told her to take them back! She won't. Apparently they are going to stay with us for 4 months while their Mom is busy at a special school that she has to do for a promotion at her job.

I can't believe that no one asked *me* if this was ok first.
