Hey everyone! I've been hangin out most of the day in the clean laundry basket my mom left on the table for me. How thoughtful of her to wash those clothes so I could have a nice place to sleep.She was so happy with me that she went and cleaned my litter box and filled my food bowl. I must be really special, Or so I thought.
A little while ago she was asking Braydi if he wanted to go! "Want to go for a ride?" she asked. No big deal! one less dog to keep tabs on. They took off but were not gone long. When they returned she had a big bag in her hand. I thought what could she have gotten me? I was so sure it had to be something for me! I followed her back to where they keep this funny looking creature in a bowl full of water. YUCK! It has a shell and arms and legs that stick out the sides. Weird! She opens the bag and I can't believe my eyes! Beautiful gold fish! Bite size too! I could not wait to get mine! I waited so patiently, but she dumped the whole bag into that bowl of water for that creature they call "Girlfriend." Not one for me? I could not believe it! That "Girlfriend" got every last one!
So now mom is trying to make it up to me with Friskies Tuna flavored treats. She says "they are made with real tuna" like that's supposed to make it all better. She told me to" feel lucky and get over it!" At least you are not getting a bath tonight like your brother Ladd."
I feel so much better.

Hey there, thanks for stopping by. I have been with my new family for about 2 weeks now. Things here just seem to get better all the time. "Lil Miss" is getting a little more tolerant of me (bless her heart). I hear she is one tough nut to crack! She can now stand to have me in the same room. Wow! If I try to approach her though it's like she has a force field around her! I get in range and she starts growling. Well I will just have to give her more time. She will come to love me. Won't know how she ever got along without me. I'm sure of it! After all I am one good looking fellow.
As for this new house I live in, I pretty much have it all mapped out. My moms room is my very favorite place to sleep. I think see took a picture of me while I was taking a snooze the other day. Maybe she showed you the picture. When I am not snoozing I am usually parked in the front window so I can let all of the neighborhood females check me out! It's just a small thing I can give them, but I am thrilled to do it! I love to strut through the house and let everyone admire me! When I find one of my family members sitting down I hop on up to their lap and let them pet me! I will curl right up and just let them enjoy themselves for a while. I love to purr so I treat them with a nice purr song. I have been told I have a very nice voice!
In closing I have to say "thanks" to my previous owner for allowing me this opportunity to come and live with this family.I am not mad any more about being left outside and asking the neighbors for food and love.I am happy where I am now. I love them and they love me. It's so much nicer than going to jail. Ya know a pretty boy like me would not do so well in jail! Besides, I know you loved me. It was just time to move on....

Hi! My name is Garfield, no I'm not famous, in fact I was unwanted and neglected. In my previous life I was left out on the street to fend for myself. I was a bit on the thin side and flea ridden when my new mom came to rescue me. I do not know how that all happened? I think I am a highly desirable friend to have around I love to give all my affection away and purr to reward you for petting me. Yes my hair is long! Isn't that a desirable trait? I have heard many humans put me down for having long hair. They say "I would never have a cat with so much hair" or "Isn't that cat hard to care for with all that hair?" The truth of the matter is I am beautiful with all that hair. I wouldn't be me !
Well here I am in my new home. I was locked in the laundry room for the first couple of nights. This I did not understand! I wanted to sleep on the bed with mom and dad but they were saying something about "he needs to know where the cat box is." I found it! I did not need to sleep with it! After a couple of nights they let me out and I went and slept with them (Way good!) I love my new bed. It is really high,I like that! The dogs sleep on the floor next to the bed so I can look down on them. Isn't that how it is supposed to be? So far I get along with them just fine. On the other hand the house cat named Lil Miss does not seem to like me. She hisses and growls at me and is down right unfriendly! I just look at her hoping she will change her mind about me but so far she still is not convinced.
I am so happy to get to live here. There is food in the bowl all the time and water right next to it. I don't have to go ask for hand outs any more Thank God! I was getting really tired of always begging for food. I have a beautiful bed to sleep in and a family who loves and adores me at least I think they do? They must! Who wouldn't! I am a good cat to have around. I think I must have won that lotto thing people are always talking about. They always say "If I win the lotto I won't have to worry about anything and I will have everything I always wanted!" That's what I have so I must have won!
