Making Dad smile


Arrival Story:
On a cold, rainy October night, Dad went to a gas station on his way home from work. In the parking lot was a crying kitty, following people around as they came & went. When Dad inquired inside, he learned that the kitty had been in a car with a man who'd been arrested @ the gas station. The man was taken away & the car impounded, but the cat was left behind! Dad went back out & said to the kitty "I'm not going to pick you up. If you want to come with me, you'll have to get in." And Sam hopped right in the car! It took a while for Ricky & Fred to get used to him & at first he spent all his time making friends with them. He had an owie on his haunch that Dad tended to until it got all well. Dad is very much Sam's person & I firmly believe that he remembers to this day that Dad saved his life.

Sam's learned to be vocal to get attention & has the cutest voice. He'll reach up when he wants to be picked up & has been known to pants people. He tolerates kisses from Seven & is learning to like Annie as well. He is the least destructive furkid in the house. He's just a sweetie all over.

Dad's A Genius

Yesterday, the dogs got big bones to chew on. And did they chew! And (most of the time) while they were chewing, Annie wasn't barking. That was WONDERFUL!! I heard Mom sayin' that maybe next year we'll have a cat room & the boys (me & the twins) could get presents, too. I'm not sure what that's all about, but I had some belly time with Dad & some peace & quiet for a little while. It was a special day.

I hid most of the morning. I'm not gonna tell where. The only time I came out was when Mom was in the waterfall. Annie was in front of the vent, so I laid on the mats. In front of the big waterbowl. The place where Mom & Dad step when they get out of the waterfall/waterbowl. I like making Mom dance around me. Then I disappeared again...

I hung out for quite a while behind the bathroom door. That vent is nice & warm! Then Mom had to come out with those dogs. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind 'em THAT much, but Annie's still way too hyper. And Seven still gets carried away a bit, too. I got a couple of kisses from Seven. I shared the bathroom vent with Annie. We're both the least furry in the house, we need more warmth. Kinda like Dad. He's not as big as Mom & he's colder than Mom all the time. I came out for some breakfast. Unintentionally played tag with the girls. All I wanted was to lay behind the couch! I can't wait 'til Annie gets too big to fit behind the couch. It'll be a while after Dad leaves before the house is quiet again (Annie makes a horrid racket when she's put in her bed until she realizes there's no one to hear her.), and then I can meditate & nap until evening time when everyone gets active again. Maybe I'll manage to sneak into the "no-no" room tonight. Wait, maybe that's not such a good idea. Annie can still fit under the bed!
