Arrival Story: We wanted another kitten to keep Robie company but didn't get one until both were 6 months old. Mom went to see Khaki and she was so sweet and friendly we knew this kitty was for us. The rescue group said someone had left her on their door step, stuffed into a shoebox. Her name was Sandy but that was the name of a dog mom's family used to have; we didn't want to re-use it so we gave her a similar name after her lovely color. Robie and Khaki didn't get along too well. Fortunately, Daemon came along and adopted us, he became Khaki's friend and then all 3 cats seemed to get along better.
Bio: Khaki is the friendliest cat we've ever seen. She loves to pose for a camera, she knows her fur is beautiful and how to show it off. She isn't the brightest bulb on the Christmas tree, but she is well-behaved and adores her people. She is always talking and trilling "BRRRRR" and greets visitors nicely, if a little too enthusiastically for some of them. She purrs a lot, and it is very loud! She is a persistent hunter - she escaped a couple times and it took forever to get her out from under the house. This simple girl may be easily confused, but she had something to teach the so-called genius Robie. She showed him how to catch and kill a mouse, like a mother cat would teach a kitten. NEW - we have the beginnings of a small feral cat colony in our backyard! Since Khaki is such a socialite, she always has the latest scoop on them. You can read about their adventures in Khaki's diary.
Lots has happened since the last time I could get mommy to write for us, that was back in August!
Purrrrs for all the sick kitties, and all the angels and their families who miss them.
I'll start with news from our neigborhood ferals. We haven't seen Blue Eyes or Orangie in a long time, afraid something happened to them, but hope they moved on to new homes or colonies. We have a new resident outside, though. Mom calls him/her Cheezy because he/she looks just like the 'I can has cheezburger' cat - a blue British Shorthair. We dunno if its a boy or girl yet, he/she won't let mommy get close, but shows up almost every day now for food. Also, once we saw a big tabby and white cat, who's ear was already tipped, on our deck. Must have been from a nearby colony, just visiting and enjoying our catnip.
In other news, our humans finally finished the kitchen! In October they had painters come in and finish the paint job, we didn't like that at all because we were confined to bedrooms for over a week. The kitchen looks nice, now, and they moved all our food in there. The boys moved in right away, but Fiona and I (especially Fiona!) still insist on eating our wet food in the living room, most of the time. No reason to eat with the messy, stinky boys if we can help it!
Mommy is still very busy with her job, she's hardly ever home. And when she is, I usually have to share her with Oscar, so I've been loving on Daddy more. I even sleep next to Daddy more now. That'll show her!
Mommy hung Christmas toys on our cat tree this year, we had fun tearing them down! We just got that tree for Christmas last year, and we've already torn some carpet off.
Hope everyone is having a fantastic summer and stayin' cool!
Mommy has exciting news - both our foster kittens Tigger and Bat Girl have been adopted! You can read more about it on their page. I'm very thankful they didn't move in here - I have enough competition as it is!
As for the feral boys, we only see Blue Eyes once in a while. Haven't seen Orangie in a long time. He was always the less timid one - we think maybe he found a home. The last few times he was here, he acted like he wanted in the house so we thought maybe someone else was letting him in theirs.
My siblings and I are doing fine, although some times our treats are late because mommy gets home late. We never let her forget them!
Thank you effuryone who sent me birthday wishes, gifts, and rosies this week! Yes, I'm a teenager now, and Robie will be soon. We celebrated our birthdays and you know what that means - tuna! Yum!
Did I tell you, there is a fox coming to nibble on our feral cats' food now? He/she is really pretty, and thankfully doesn't seem to bother the cats. He also ate all the mulberries that fell from a tree in between our neighbors house and ours. I bet our neighbor liked that, the berries make a big mess on his driveway.
In other news, our foster kittens BatGirl and Lil' Dude are still looking for furever homes. They are about 3 months old now, getting really big! Of course, mom is reporting this, I don't actually see them because I'm retired from kittens, MOL!
