Arrival Story:
When we moved back from England my parents promised we could have a pet. My mom went out and got Taffy before my dad could get a dog. She did not want a dog.

Ironically, we got Taffy from a family that just moved to a neighboring town Waterloo, We changed it. Took a while. Until my brothers friend suggested Taffy because she was oranged colored.

Taffy was very vocal and always meowing. Everyone used to joke that she would answer me back when I asked her questions. One night my parents were playing cards with there friends at the kitchen table. Which is also near the sliding door where kitty would commonly come and go. They were tied up in the game and ignoring her urgent meows. Finally, she bellowed what sounded like "Let meeee out!" Everyone just looked at one another... then they started laughing like crazy.

Thank you so much.... I am thankful. I was just thinking back to those car rides to cape cod. I was a snuggly beast like Andy or social like Leo. But during the car rides to our second house at Cape Cod I would take turns sitting on the kids laps. There were three: My primary care- taker Lisa, who owned Leo and is Andy's mom, then Christian and then Stacy. It was a long trip. I would sometimes puke in the car. Towards the end.

But I had a huge second domain. These humans trusted me and I was able to go outside. I decimated the whole entire chipmunk population with in months. I went there for years. During all the kids school vacations and the whole entire summer. I enjoyed going "On vacation"

Leo traveled to his grandfathers house in Pennsylvania...a couple of times but he didn't go outside. But he got to be with Lisa over the holidays. Andy might be going to be with them at sometime.

I just can't get that wooded area of the cape out of my mind. Lisa says that it's way over developed now in that neighborhood. And the house was sold a little while after her parents divorced. What ever that means. They sold it to friends. That saddens me. I would have liked to visited there one more time in spirit with Lisa.

Well, its late and Lisa has to go to work tomorrow. And I must find an area to hover over.

Thanks again for the nomination.


so taffy how are you doing?

I am doing good. I love being matter and floating... I was watching your cat yesterday... he was playing with his toys. Very cute, but big to be playing with toys.

But I guess boy kitties are less mature. Plus, I was hunting instead. I played with string when I was tiny. I can't believe how much I was outside compared to Leo and Andy.

Poor Andy never goes outside. And I think that coyote was stalking Leo for a long time and that is why he stayed close to home. And it got him in the end. I am sorry for Lisa, but I have to behave strong, so she doesn't hang on to it.
She hung on to me for a long time. I had to stay here... for a while and I didn't want to. I didn't like it there. My life was good until Ruskus, the stray came, to live with us. He tormented me for eight years.

I wish he never came to us. Well, enough of that.

I am going to watch Andy and Lisa for a bit and then fizz away for today.


Thank you for nominating us for diary of the day

Taffy we got diary of the day!

Taffy: That's wonderful Lisa... I never called you mommy. Huh?

Me: Well, when you were a baby maybe.

Taffy: I am glad that you are getting noticed for your creativity and writing finally. I remember all those resumes, and job interview. And to no avail.... Do you still want to be a writer?

Me: Sometimes. I just don't want to mass produce the same crap everyone else does. I know there's a story in me. That's different and will be unique. But It hasn't surfaced.

Taffy: hmm your obsessed with kitties. Maybe a book about cats? Or the pet sitting jobs you have had?

Me: I have tried... the pet sitting ones and they come out either boring or really negative about the animal. No... and then there are the animals that have died. Too painful... too painful to write about past kitties.

Taffy: I think it would help you move on, I can still feel a pull to the earth to you. It's ok. But think of poor Leo, you have to let him move on a be a kitty in heaven. It's fun up here.

Me: Taffy you have never given a shit... about me or anyone!!!

Taffy: Lisa, that is not true. You took care of me very well at the end. You protected me from fatso the killer cat. I appreciated that a lot. and we bonded major.

Lisa: True ... true... But I can miss the kitties.

Taffy. (sighs) Ok. But I am glad we won! I never won anything in my life. Have I?

Me: Sexy kitty award.

Taffy: I think not.

Me: Hee hee.

Taffy: Well, you can communicate with me still. If it helps get your creative juices out. But I might be annoyed sometimes. There are times I can't materialize. Or have a thought process. I can't control where I go.

Lisa: That's fine. I can improvise.

Taffy: This could be interesting. Thanks everyone for the nomination!
