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.

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,


We had an intruder, oh, I mean, a guest

Like alot of the country, it was really cold here the last few days and nights. Last night it dipped below zero and with the winchill it was brutal. As you might remember me mentioning, we have two feral friends outside. Actually they are quite tame and let us pet them and even rub their bellies. The Moms made shelters for them and they get two or three meals a day and fresh water. Well last night was bitter and Ron, the big orange guy who is Daddy to most of my family was hanging around out back. He wouldn't go in the shelter and the Moms felt bad for him. Mom Michele went out around midnight and asked if he wanted to come in. He came and stood by the back door. So she scooped him and put him in the cellar....

Yeah, our Mancave! Rusty, Ivan and I love to hang out in the Mancave. And there she puts Ron down there with crunchies and water and wet food. She showed him the litter box and even put him in it and dug his paws around like you would for a kitten. She turned out the lights and came upstairs and we all went to bed. This morning she went down to the mancave, and gave him breakfast. She noticed that he hadn't used the box, so she put him in it again. She left Ron in the basement, because it was still only 2 outside and she went to work.

When she came home at lunch, she opened the front door and the smell almost knocked her over. She started pacing around the living room and pulled out the black light looking for pee. She asked us who missed the box. We all just looked at her like "it wasn't me". Then she realized....RON! she went down the basement and sure enough Ron had finally peed, but it was not in the box. At least it was on the concrete floor and could be scrubbed good, but did it stink. She scooped Ron up and put him back outside, it was at least a bit warmer and the sun was shining brightly. He pranced up the yard to go sit by the garden while Mom went back down the basement to clean.

There is still the hint of cat pee, but it is not so strong anymore. Mom wishes we could open the windows for fresh air, but it is much too cold for that.

Will Ron come back in tonight? He may not want too. I don't think he liked being cooped up, even though it was for his own good. He wasn't around at regular supper time, but did eventually show up and then ran up the yard after he ate. We'll see what happens. Although it is not supposed to be as cold tonight as last night. I'll keep you posted.
