Mew. Mew. Mew. Just Got here. I'm still a baby cat. Thought I wouldn't have friends but met Dion in the car. I was in a cage with a handle & he was on the front seat. Knew when my human Mom trapped me in the bathroom something was up. Strange person walked in and she was Meli - Mel my new Mommy & she had a cage with her and opened the top and resistance was futile! Old Mom put me down in it and they closed the door and we were off to the car & down the road before I had a real chance to say good-bye but I mewed at her.
Got here & thought I would miss my little sister kitty cat and I would be the only cat. Meli - Mel took me back to the room a bedroom and I was wrapping myself around her neck but I got down 'cause I smelled another cat. I jumped off Meli - Mel and was quick under the bed and there she was a Mama Siamese cat. We chatted for a little and then I left to explore.
Well have to go. New place. Lots to do. I'm also just a baby cat & I need a nap.

Had a fun day yesterday chasing Thomasina’s tail when she swished it back and forth. She got really & truly annoyed me after awhile so I had to go hide in the corner. Realized when Meli - Mel walked in that she could see me and I just wasn’t in a good hiding place. Oh well. I’m a kitten and have to learn these things that just ‘cause I was out of Thomasina’s view didn’t mean no one comin’ in couldn’t see me. Already havin’ fun today too! Meli - Mel walked in and said okay, who pulled down the curtains. As she pulled them up my claws were still attached so guess she knows I did it. Caught! She gave me a sheet off the side of the bed and told me to play with the sheet instead but I ran ‘cause I just knew I was in bad trouble but she didn’t fuss too much just said okay, which one of you pulled apart some of the silk flowers? Oh no! Thought she would accuse me ‘cause I’m the playful baby, but she just said that’s right. This was like this yesterday ‘fore you arrived Calliope. Good. Oh, Thomasina does like to play!!! Good. Will store that away for future reference. Well have to go now. So many things to see and do today and saw some birds in the trees outside the window. Got Thomasina to watch them out the window with me and she is just sooooo very patient and can sit there for what seems like hours and look at those birds. Says she has caught them before. Yes, my Mommy used to do that for us and they’re very good to eat and quite tasty!
MEW from Baby Cat Calliope (Callie)
OH! Forgot! Thanks for that cute heart The family of Kinsey ~ sweet angel girl, Baby, Corky(in loving memory) and Mittens !!! Love ‘ya. Mew.
Meli - Mel my new Mommy says I need to ‘member to thank furry fur-iends too and guess for the start she’s just gonna hafta do that for me ‘til I’m ready!!! I’m still a baby. I don’t know these things yet, but if ‘ya were by me I would lick yur face & give 'ya a bath with my tongue and let ‘ya know that I liked being fur-iends! OH wait! Don’t have fur-iends yet. Well Mom will have to find me some soon! Bye for now. Mew Mew Mew Mew.

This is my third day here now & I’m having such fun! I’m the go between with Dion The CatDog and Thomasina the Mama Siamese cat. Thomasina still won’t let Dion beyond the doorway of the room, but I can play with Dion or curl up to her and I can play with Thomasina and curl up to her. For two days I’ve gotten to spend some time with Mommy and the dog Dion. We sit on the sofa and I get petted and petted and Dion gets petted and petted and I get to curl up against Dion and rub against Dion cat style and knead her with my claws but so far she’s not giving any good milk when I knead her in the right place like my first Mom cat did and Thomasina doesn’t either, but I’m supposed to have outgrown the need for that kind of milk all the same. Love getting to go play with Mommy my human one and Dion but I don’t like Mother too much yet. Thomasina loves her and goes as close to the door as she dares when Mother comes in but Mother’s voice is loud and scary to me and I prefer Mommy’s (Meli - Mel’s) and like Mommy to hold me. I run so far and jump down when Mother tries to reach out to me, let her just stroke my back once and I’m off. I get to sit on the sofa with Mommy and Dion for a little time every afternoon or so far I do and crawl around on Mommy and on Dion and wrap myself around Mommy’s neck and walk around on top of Dion when she is lying down on the sofa and Dion makes strange little noises at me and purrs with me, but it doesn’t sound just like a cat’s purr. Dion didn’t like it when I got my claws stuck in her fur and then in her skin tonight but she didn’t growl at me or try to bite me, but just whined at me. My claws are growing and I just can’t quite get them out of things like sweaters and shirts and fur right now and need a little help ‘cause they just seem to get stuck, but I’m working on that & trying to figure out how to curve my claws out and retract them back in, just will take a little more practice. Dion loves me & likes to sniff of me and gives me doggy kisses so I clean her fur for her, but she’s not like other dogs and I’ve seen her clean her fur herself just like a cat by licking her paws and then swiping them over her head and I know that we haven’t been here long enough to teach her how to do that so maybe her doggy Mommy taught her how or maybe she had one cat parent and one dog. She says she’s a CatDog so maybe that’s what that means.
Had to try climbing both sets of drapes / curtains today and knocked them down again at one window and thought Mommy would fuss at me and so ran and his again, but she didn’t get mad just put them back tucked up into the window sill again. Like I can’t get them down to climb tomorrow. Like watching the birds and the squirrels in the morning so Thomasina gets up on the little table and into the window sill or onto it and I have a much better view of the squirrels and birds from the top of the curtains where I’m hanging on with my claws for dear life. Somehow Mommy knows and comes running, but I don’t know how she knows. Maybe she has a cat sixth sense ‘cause she mews and meows at me like a cat but she howls like a dog or a coyote or wolf at Dion and makes Dion’s sounds back at her. Mother says she was born howling like a wolf that she has done it since she was little and that one of her nieces has done the same since she was a tiny little girl too. Mother says that she has always meowed at her cats too and practiced their noises the different types of meows we cats make and that she used to drive them crazy. I meow back at her and think she might understand what I’m saying ‘cause she brought us a little tuna to eat. She doesn’t mix the dry and moist cat food together yet the way I like it, though, ‘cause Thomasina likes her canned moist food and her dry separate and she eats a little of one and then a little of the other. I really prefer mine mixed and she says she will start doing that soon.
Need to go curl over Thomasina and take a nap now. Tired out from all my babycat adventures today so need some sleep. Will mew again tomorrow I hope but if not the next day. Have so much playing to do -- will have to write ‘bout the moth I ate tomorrow. It was really good and really fun to catch.
++++ Thank you for the diamond Tigger! It is so beautiful! I love it… You heal and stay well so you can be around to be friends for a long time! ++++
Great havin’ new fur-iends and so = (back in a minute to name fur-iends ‘cause the firewall sez Mommy caught a Trojan downloader & needs to shut down the computer box)

Oooh, Mommy is so mad with us. She came into the room today and kept sniffing the air. Then she checked our litter box and she sniffed all round the room and said I know some cats who better not be pissing anywhere but the litter box. Then she sniffed again all round and said or doing anything else that belongs in the litter box anywhere else. Ut oh. Knew we were in trouble. Finally Mom’s human nose, which she said was overwhelmed by the terrible urine smell, tracked to where we had made our own litter box. Oh did she ever fuss at us. There was a pile of towels in the corner nearest the heat vent and she had wondered said she why I had stopped sleeping and resting in that corner near the towels had meant to move them. She is so very, very upset with us but she didn’t yell at us, just fussed and fussed and fussed and don’t know -- maybe that was worse. Then she left with the dirty towels muttering something about hose outside. After she got back in she brought my old litter box in that my old Mommy sent home with her and the litter she gave her and she came directly after me and fussed and said perhaps you won’t eat this. That’s right. We haven’t been using the litter box at all but it’s a special mega minimizing odor litter and we were digging in it so Mommy was right and she did see us in there but bad assumption that we were using it. No, oh no. Mommy must have looked closely at the towels. That’s right. We were eating the cat litter so Mommy had to go find the litter to read about toxicity. Mmm. Was that clean cat litter good to eat. No, she’s right. It’s not like we’re not well fed ‘cause we are very well fed. We have our saucers each, though we eat from each other’s plates, of dry cat food and can moist cat food and Mommy still isn’t mixing mine together the wet food and the dry ‘cause we eat from each other’s plates and Thomasina won’t eat wet mixed with dry and pouts and goes on hunger strikes even if it’s my special saucer that has the wet mixed with dry. We each have a saucer of half dry half moist food separated the way Thomasina likes it. We also have a big back up bowl each of dry food in case we get hungry. We munch and snack on our food off and on all day long, so we’re not desperate for food. But we love the cat litter. It is just so very tasty that clay blend cat litter and Mommy sez she is so very happy that she didn’t buy a bunch of that cat litter but bought the sample since we are not supposed to be eating the cat litter even if it is clean. Thomasina never used it either but was peeing on a different towel and she wouldn’t let Mommy have it, just dug her claws into it and would not give up her urine scented towel that was on the floor right in front of her under the bed and she hiss growled at Mommy, so Mommy told her she was a bad cat and Thomasina just flipped her tail back and forth like you just try to come and take this towel from me. Mommy sez she knows that Thomasina will move later and she will and then that towel is hers to disinfect and wash and cleanse of the toxic level of cat urine. Mommy sez we are showing cat contempt for her and that we know better and that we are being given some concessions ‘cause we’ve been feral but that doesn’t mean that we are allowed to regress. She said we know better and we do, so we both started using my litter box. ‘Fraid she might have to remove that other litter box ‘cause she said we aren’t allowed to eat that clean partially clay based litter. Wanna bet? How ‘ya gonna stop us? Yeah, either we stop or guess she will remove the box.
So we waited for Mommy to leave the room and we both climbed the curtains and really got it down good this time. We like watching birds from the window and that curtain is just in the way and we don’t care if people can see us. If they come in, they’re in for a big surprise if they try to touch us. Thomasina doesn’t like strange people touchin’ me and she was so upset that Mommy took me out of the room for so long last night that every time Mommy comes into the room she mreows at me and I run to her if I’m hiding or playing somewhere else. Think she might eat anyone she doesn’t know who tries to bother me and they certainly better not touch her ‘cause she still doesn’t let Mommy touch her but she has let Mother touch her a couple of times. Not for long mind you but she has let Mother touch her at least a couple of times and pet her head but when she tries to pet her back, Thomasina runs and hides.
Well gotta go and see if we can knock the curtains down again. Always makes Mom come and check on us. She was meowing at us again today and mewing and talking to us and telling us we were sweet kitties. Thomasina wants us to move closer when Mommy does these things so we move closer and closer to Mommy all the time. Oh == still haven’t told ‘ya ‘bout the moth. Will have to do that ‘nother time ‘cause need to go play now or maybe just curl up on Thomasina and sleep. She’ll probably let Mommy and Dion play with me again later. Need to see what we can get into now so really gotta go!
Mew. Luv, BabyCat Callie

I’m not feeling very good so Mommy has me away from Thomasina ‘cause I just keep coughin’ and sneezing and my little eyes are watery. Thomasina is stayin’ away from me all the same. Normally she doesn’t but I’m really, really sick. Mommy is upset but a friend of hers sez she can take me to her vet tomorrow since we Dion is on a wait list and may have to find a different vet for if she needs one. Has all her shots until next year. I need my next boosters soon anyway, so Mommy sez she’s gonna get them for me tomorrow. The vet isn’t close so I might have to stay with her friend overnight, but then I get to come home. Depends on how long it takes at the vet. Mommy sez. We will see. Wish my sistfur was here from my old home or I could go to see her, but Mommy found out the lady is givin’ her away too, can’t keep her either, but at least I have Thomasina. I have to stay in another room overnight. Mommy thinks I have allergies, but maybe I just have a cold. Well talk to ‘ya tomorrow or when I get back. Mew. Luv, BabyCat Callie
Well, leaving with the vet tech from a rescue group. Thomasina told me good-bye and was very sad and got up into one window and then the other to watch me drive away. I might not be coming back, but the vet tech promised me that I would still have a great home and probably another cat would be there or that I would make friends with a cat and we might get adopted out together. I will miss all of you who have made friends with me if I don’t return. Mommy wanted to keep me, but the lady talked her into signing a first paper to let the private rescue have me if I was really sick with certain things or if my vet bills were going to a very high amount for treatment. It was thought best that I stay away from Thomasina in case I’m contagious and all the lady said for sure was that listening to my little heart and my coughs that I might just have pneumonia and it depends on how far along it is for how serious it is. Was having fun in my new home but I was tired too much when I played. Hate to tell ‘ya good-bye when I don’t know if I’m coming back or not but just don’t know for now, so love to all my friends if I don’t return. Hope all the rest of my siblings are okay since there were nine of us including Mama Cat. She had the ad up and adopted us all out though one of was returned to her and was to be adopted out again and she was keeping one of us. Hope every fur related is okay. Mew. Luv, BabyCat Calliope (Callie)
*** Callie’s human Mommy’s note: When I went to pick up Callie the lady who rescued her told me she had a cold because she was both coughing and sneezing. My thought was it was allergies and that possibly she was allergic to things. She was to go to the clinic / vet this upcoming week yesterday or early part of the week anyway, but now she might not be coming back and Dion will miss her if she doesn’t and Thomasina will and I will, but I will leave her page up to give progress updates for awhile anyway even if she doesn’t return as the vet tech rescue group lady promised to keep me updated even if Calliope isn’t returned here.

Have a new home & like it here. Miss Dion & Thomasina, but Dad sez okay Rob sez we can go visit them sometimes and that Dion can certainly come here soon to see us. Thomasina might not like to travel though so I will have to visit her when I’m feeling better. Like Rob, but he is really tall so it’s a long way to jump to leap into his arms and a long way down when I drape myself around his neck. He calls me his Christmas present from my Mommy but he sez I will meet my new Mommy soon ‘nuff and that I will like her, that she just loves cats. Like my new home. Haven’t seen much of it yet. Came home from the vet and was really tired so just took a long nap. Not allowed out into everywhere yet but like this room. Has this old fashioned heater in the wall and Dad okay Rob sez it’s like when he was a child the heater in the wall thing. Really warm and I love to curl up near it. Love to curl up on Rob’s lap too and knead his legs and curl up and let him pet me and go to sleep purring. Miss Thomasina and really miss playin’ with her, but Dad okay Rob sez that I don’t need to do much playing right now just yet all the same ‘cause I need to get well, get all better and that playing gets in the way of getting all better.
Still takin’ meds, antibiotics Rob calls them and will have to take those things for awhile. Getting lots of sleep and naptime in and have some good cat food to eat. Rob is making it the way I like it so far mixed dry and canned moist food. Yawn. Time to get some shut eye again. Still can’t purr as loud as I want but will after I’m well I’m so sure. Mew at ‘ya later.
Mew. Mew. Mew. BabyCat Calliope (Callie)

Still sick, but Rob is takin’ good care of me. I do eat cat food still & yet, but I get lots of other good things to eat too and I’m a growing kitten so I eat a lot! I get little cans of tuna (& Meli gave us those sometimes) & broiled fish & fish sticks & salmon (canned & fresh), & sometimes a shrimp or two when Daddy I mean Rob has shrimp & cheese & milk (every day for the milk) & chicken & lots & lots of other good things to eat because Rob sez he knows I’m growing and need to eat several times a day, but that when I’m older I won’t get to eat quite so much. At first I got these things ‘cause Rob kept forgetting to get cat food, but he sez since I so love these foods that I can have some people food every single day and might always get some of what he’s eating provided it’s something cats like and if it’s not something that’s bad for cats. Oh, Dad mean Rob still hasn’t remember to buy cat food, but he had a sample of some that someone gave him and that’s how I got some cat food. He has to go to the store this weekend or to a friend’s close by to get me some new cat food. He’s been studying up on the different kinds of cat food and kitten food to see just what might be best for me and what I might need. He had some old cat litter, not used of course, and I also have dirt in my cat box for now. He’s really not used to having a cat, but he also hasn’t been to the store yet while he’s had me. Sez he wonders if he should have someone come over to watch me while he’s gone and then maybe he might take me with him in a carrier to Pet Smart and wonders if all the other men will think he’s strange carrying his cat around with him. Since I’m sick, he really doesn’t want to leave me alone…
Love Rob. When he’s working or sitting in a chair watching tv he lets me sleep in his lap. He gave me toys too that I love some that he turned into toys for me like the spool. I have a catnip mouse & got things in a Christmas stocking such as sardines in a tin, but he says I can’t eat those all at once. I have a can of tuna too and some little toys like a super ball a little one and some rubber fishing worm lures that he drags around on a string for me and holds in the air, but not too much right now ‘cause I’m not supposed to be runnin’ round a great deal right now. I like to sleep wrapped around his neck too while he’s sitting and working at his table sometimes on the computer box. He walks around with me standing on his shoulders too or wrapped around his neck and tells me my nickname should be Ferret ‘cause I act like one sometimes.
Well, gotta go. Time for my morning breakfast milk. Think I’m getting one or two sardines for breakfast too and a little cheese. Hope Dad mean Rob forgets to go to the store again today or to his friends to get more cat food. Not much left in the sample bag(s) & that’s okay too.

We had a good first day of the year, got a great deal of napping in and got up and ate and went back to sleep and then got up and napped. You get the picture. Kept the tv on part of the time in the background but I got annoyed and kept mewing so Daddy turned it off and even turned off the radio so we could sleep with just a fan noise on. Dad likes a fan on, said the noise is soothing and like waves and keeps other sound out of the room like his friends getting up and being noisy about whatever it was they were watching on tv and shouting but then they would suddenly get quiet and when Daddy got up to check on them, they were all sound asleep too. We just stayed up really late last night and watched the sun come up or some of us did and some people left after it got light. They ate breakfast first. They drank lots of coffee. Some of them had bad headaches and said they wouldn’t drink champagne again until next year or whatever else it is those humans drink that smells so foul and strong. Yuck! I sniffed of some of the glasses and it was nasty.
Jack came over today with Barn Owl this great big red and orange Tabby. He went to see my former Mom too and think it was to pick up Barn Owl so that he still had him when he stopped by and didn’t want to leave him outside in his dog cage. Barn Owl had to stay in one room and wasn’t allowed out ‘cause Jack said he might not trick him again and that Barn Owl had been feral but made friends with him. He somehow got over to my former Mom’s house and inside and had been secretly hiding and living there and munching out on the dog food said Jack. Former Mom couldn’t figure out why the new dog Pinto was barking so much when she wasn’t seeing anything and why things were suddenly falling for no reason when the dogs were nowhere near and how when she had the dogs in sight and the cats were away in their rooms, why cat poo was appearing downstairs in places where the cats are not allowed and where the door is usually kept shut. Was Barn Owl when he couldn’t get back into the new cat’s room, Inspector Morse’s room, Henry’s room. He was going into Morse’s room and playing and using the litter box and eating and my former Mom couldn’t figure out why Morse wasn’t getting any fatter when he was eating all that cat food and why sometimes though he did look really big and other times he looked just big and not like the biggest cat ever. Jack said he just knew that Barn Owl was there and didn’t want to say anything to my former Mom until he knew for sure. He was right. Barn Owl was there and was having a good time hiding out in the dirty laundry which Jack knew he loved, just loves to snuggle down in the basket way down into the laundry or under a bunch of dirty towels or dirty clothes and peer out and spy on everyone or cover up completely and burrow in and sleep. Dog food was also vanishing and my former Mom thought the dogs were getting into the bag of food. Barn Owl has a big appetite though Jack says he doesn’t quite eat him out of house and home, just loves to eat and then slink around and hide and torment any dogs around or other cats sometimes and nap. Jack said he’s actually lost weight. Daddy said he wouldn’t know it by looking at him. Mother was seeing him and helping him get into the room with both Morse (Henry) and with Thomasina and Mosaic and Mom couldn’t understand why they were carrying on and jumping into the closet and hiding out on the closet shelf and why suddenly they were making such loud thudding noises when they jumped. Cause it was Barn Owl who is one really big cat. He’s nice though and let Daddy touch him, but hissed when Dad tried to pet his back from the top of his cage. He did let Daddy pet his head though. Jack said he was beginning to warm up to people but that he still liked cats best and messin’ with dogs heads and driving them nuts. Smart cat too.

Hope Meli Mom my former Mommy doesn’t get upset, but we may have a new cat. Young ‘un like myself too but maybe a little older, maybe. The cat’s a feral or somewhat and is a pretty medium haired black cat and a bit on the thin side though not starving. Daddy Rob noticed that food was vanishing not my in kennel dry food but my food outside where I couldn’t reach it while I was resting comfortably inside my kennel. He knew no way I could be reaching it, but he moved it father away all the same. Then he kept seeing what he thought was my shadow, a black shadow. When he realized it wasn’t me, he decided gasp that we had a rat. No such luck. I would like to take down a wild rat. Daddy said he knew I would like to tangle with a rat but that he doesn’t think so. Finally, Daddy said he knew ghosts and ghost cats didn’t eat cat food so he tried to stay awake and watch with a dim little light on and there he or she was. Now I know which gender but can’t make Daddy understand in my Catese language. Beautiful black kitty cat all black and Daddy thinks its eyes are blue but I think they’re green. We will just wait until Daddy catches my new friend that is getting in through we’re not sure where yet, but must be a gap somewhere either that or Daddy is leaving the door open longer than a minute sometimes. Don’t know though, ‘cause I could get into a house in a minute if I wanted. Pouting ‘cause I wouldn’t be the only cat but then again would just love to have a fur-iend to play with & Daddy is getting out a kennel for him or her in preparation for catching the cat. He sure does love to eat. Ha! Ha! Ha! Every time I say he Daddy gets upset ‘cause I’m still a kitten and I’ve been sick so he hasn’t had me fixed yet. He has visions of a kitten having kittens says he and will have to keep an eye on us real sharp if it does turn out to be a he. Might be a she, but I love to torment Daddy with the other possibility.
Oh am I a spoiled little kitty cat! Daddy opened some anchovies for a pizza today and I got some. Mmm. Like little anchovies strips a great deal. Got a whole sardine too! Daddy put the rest up for later so all or most of them must be mine. Of course, I had some cat food too, some Meow Mix, dry food. Dad is trying some new food. Also got some new meds. Might have to be on them for awhile too ‘cause they’re for Lyme’s. Pneumonia is clearing up and Daddy thinks I might be allergic to something now ‘cause I sneeze still. Maybe air freshener and he says he will stop sprayin’ it if I am. Love Daddy Rob.

Daddy named our new kitty cat who is all hissy at him and scratchy, teeth and claws and flying fur and arched back and curved tail! His name is Jade / Jaden. If somehow he turns out to be a girl cat then it’s Jade but I think he’s a Jaden. That upsets Daddy something terrible ‘cause neither of us is fixed yet and he says his kittens are just not having kittens and that’s final! I love my new fur-iend Jaden and Daddy sez I need to stop thinking of him as my boy fur-iend cat cause we just be little ones still. But we’re growing up Daddy! That’s what I’m afraid of BabyCat Callie! I don’t have teenaged daughters but now I know in a way how that feels sez Daddy to me his BabyCat little girl. Love to play with Jaden but Daddy keeps an eye on us sharp like. We’re very kittenish together and think he’s about my age too. Why did he get all hissy at Dad? Cause Dad had to give him a shot called it a booster and he got the meds from a supply box from online he calls it. Says Jaden seems to be in good health but that kittens are supposed to take their de-worming pills and I had mine on back and to have their first boosters all done by his age, but he’s been part of a feral colony. He didn’t like the nasty flea stuff that damp stuff that Daddy puts on me either. Well, I don’t much like it myself but Daddy says that I have to be protected from fleas and ticks since I had Lyme’s before and will still have to take meds for awhile to make sure that it doesn’t come back.
Jaden bit right into Daddy’s hand very hard and it swelled up and Daddy had to put antibiotic ointment on his hand and compresses and he had to clean it up good. Jaden scratched the devil out of Daddy’s arm too and is a wild little boy cat all black and long haired! Not that he hates Daddy but he doesn’t believe in cats taking shots yet. He will. We need our shots so we won’t get diseases and get sick so that we can live long lives with our humans. Only reason he put up with Daddy giving him his medicines / shots at all is ‘cause he really likes me and likes playing with me. He can get out of his cage kennel but he climbs back inside ‘cause it’s near mine and he loves to play with me and chase moths around. He loves to jump in the air to go after the rubber plastic fishing lure worm on a long string. We can both jump very high and Daddy Rob sez that he needs to get someone to take photos while he plays with us with that fishing lure because we can leap quite high with our claws all out and he sez he needs photos of both of us. Jaden Jaguar likes the shadows just like his sister Shadows and is black and hard to see and doesn’t much care for bright daylight yet. Daddy sez the ferals are very nocturnal meaning they run around and hunt and socialize at night while they’re wild or the ones in this are do until they start seeking out the company of people again or the company of domestic housecats. One day he says, he will be able to get a photo but for now he says we’re staying on my old Mom’s page, Meli’s page.
Well, will purr ‘bout the Moths another day. For now, I need a nap cause Dad was a night owl last night and that meant that me and Jaden got to play all night with Dad checking on us. He’s hiding under a chair with a skirt right now and is pouting at Dad but I think I can get him to forgive Daddy. His Dad too now…
Mews & Purrs, BabyCat Callie
Forgot to mention that Daddy hurt his foot too chasing Jaden so his arm and hand and foot are all sore! Poor Daddy. Maybe he’ll let me sleep on his pillow and purr him to sleep.
