Gray and White

His morning "lovies"(or hugs, kisses and affection) and little sister Skittles

Why do they put crunchy cat food in plastic jugs? It's so much easier to chew open the paper bags!

Favorite Toy:
Little plastic springs that bounce and can be carried around the house and put in the shoes of humans.

Favorite Nap Spot:
On the leg rest of the recliner when the recliner is extended.

Favorite Food:
All things in moderation, chicken, ham, salmon, even pizza bones (crusts)

Can watch tv as well as a human. Loves to watch cartoons and shows about birds.


Arrival Story:
Skylar wandered into our backyard one sunny October morning. He was about 7 weeks old, hungry and filled with curiosity. We searched the yard for other possible littermates and found none. We believe he is the son of an elusive, feral neighborood queen and not a lost pet.

Skylar is somewhat of a "medical marvel". A heart murmur was detected at his second vet visit. After several tests, a veterinary cardiologist revealed that Skylar has a ventricular septal defect, an enlarged right ventricle, and a several other heart malfunctions. He was able to be neutered under the watchful eye of his cardiologist and came through his surgery just fine. He is presently not on any medication. He eats well, sleeps like a cat, and still retains his playful personality that he had in kittenhood.

Wow. I can't believe it....nine years old today. I didn't think Catster would still be around for me to write a diary entry. I'm glad it still is, but man I miss the Good Old Catster days.....gosh, I'm starting to sound like an old fart...thinking back on the good old days.

But thank you all for remembering me on my special day and stopping by to visit. I'm doing pretty well. Since we lost Murphy and Rusty, that makes me the oldest cat in the nine. Man, that takes some getting used to....Nine.

I'm doing pretty well. I don't play as much as I used to and thankfully, I dont pick on PErcy anymore....I went through a phase when I couldnt stand him, Mom had to seperate us for a bit....and even after that i would still get all irritated with him...Now we are ok,,,,although every once in a while I like to give him the "stink eye" and send him running...mol.

Mom has to get in touch with my cardiologist because she thinks I need my teeth cleaned. Given my heart problems I have to have it done with him present. Mom and the doctor played phone tag...he'sa cool doctor, he even gave Mom his cell phone number in case she couldnt get him at the hospital and I heard his voice on our answering machine. It's been a while since I saw him, but I remembered his voice.

Thanks again for the birthday wishes...I miss you guys alot!
Love and purrs and some whisker kisses,

Nine year old Skylar


I'm 8 today!

Today is my 8th birthday. Mom almost forgot. She didn't get me a present yet, but did tell me that she is getting something special for all of us on her next trip to Petco. She said we will love them and that I can have one of my very own. I think I know what it scratching posts...we are really hard on them. We pretty much all use them. We don't really care for the sissal ones, we much prefer the carpeted ones, and a few of my fur sibs like that emory cat thing that came out a few years ago. That one is still in good shape.

I did get some cake and icing for a treat today. Mom made a vanilla cake and decorated it for a cake show. It turned out nice. She wasn't eligible for prizes because the contest was at her workplace, but the cake did get votes. Anyway, she brought home leftover cake and tonight they dang to me, pulled my ears and gave me a treat. It was yummmy!

Things are okay around here. I miss my brother Rusty. He used to come down here and hang out in the mancave with me. Ivan comes down, but its not the same. I still like to pick on PErcy, but we haven't had any real fights in a long time. Sometimes he hides when he sees me coming although the other day we ate breakfast side to side in the kitchen.

Thank you all for the presents and good wishes. You Catster friends are some of the best people in the world. I treasure the friendships that we have made here. I miss the old days on Catster when we had parties (and the comments worked). Don't get me started, I sound like the old furte that I am becoming.

Take care and stay safe this holiday weekend.
Much love,


Your Cat Eats That!

Meep and Bibi started a tag game in their diaries so I thought we would play too. Any cat who wants to play; consider yourself tagged and put a diary entry in for what strange human food you like to eat.

We have a few odd things we like to eat. Rusty likes "pizza bones" (the crust from pizza), Rusty and I both like McDonald's cheeseburgers (minus the onions, pickles and ketchup), I like oatmeal (cooked) and Percy loves salad greens. You can't open a bagged salad around here without Percy right by your feet within 2 minutes (that boy loves his salad). Daisy likes Goldfish crackers. And once in a while I like a Dorito. We also love lunch meat and I go nuts for cheese (American and Cheddar only).
I guess the strangest thing on that list is oatmeal!

See you again soon! Love and head nudges,
