Spotted Tabby

Mom's fuzzy purple robe/fuzzy blanket. To sit on the screened porch, and to jump up on any available surface. A high shelf is seen as a challenge. He loves to go for walks on his leash.

When Mom won't take me OUT! if there is one of the outdoot kitties in MY YARD

Favorite Toy:
Da Bird. I climbed to the top of Mom's closet to get to it! scratchers & catnip

Favorite Nap Spot:
I took over a basket on top of the filing cabinet in Mom's office - so she can no longer use it. I also have discovered how to get into the ceiling in the basement and I like to sleep up there next to the heat vent. Anywhere I can curl up in a box!

Favorite Food:
tuna & turkey and I must confess, I like to get a taste of Mom's oatmeal and one tsp of milk when Mom has cereal.

I can open the closet door, & I try to turn the knob on the back door to go on the screen porch. I also like to drag towels, placemat, or blanket through the house & stash them behind the couch.I tried to drag a king size comforter up the basement stairs


Arrival Story:
My son had heard meowing a few days earlier outside his window. We were outside one morning and saw little legs under our truck. We have a few feral cats around, so we were surprised when I called out & he came running! he meowed & rubbed on our legs and purred so loud he almost fell over. He was a filthy scrawny mess. We fell for him instantly and I took him to the vet, he had fleas, a respiratory infection and his eyes were infected. But after a few months of meds, good food & lots of love, he has grown into a wonderful kitty.

I have hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and am on medicine which I take like a good boy. I survived a bladder blockage 2 times. My heart actually improved & I am doing great!

Some thoughts from a kitty's perspective

Hey all - busy, hectic, whirlwind
these words describe things around here lately. Momma has too much list, and not enough time. For some reason too she is waay behind on everything (including purchasing me gifties) so this will be short. (and she is the kind that has shopping done before turkeyday)
We luvs all our pals and our soon to be pals. Hope that the holidays, whichever you may celebrate bring you all peace and joy in your heart. May the new year bring us all a fresh start and some funds would be nice too. Just in case we aren't able to get back on here before the big day. We think of you all the time, and hopefully, soon will be able to get back here more regularly. Things have just gotten too big to deal with, and Momma needs help, but cannot hire another office person. So it will be work all night a few days - THe Dad has hardly even been home due to working so much. Anymeow
We have been having a ton of fun this year - The Dad did not have time to go & get a humungus tree, so Momma & human sister went to Menards and found a nice little balsam for $24 bucks, and decorated it with the "northwoods" ornaments. That stuff usually goes on a tree in the basement, but Momma said let's mix it up & go with what is easeir than all the other individual wrapped ones, etc. So in an hour they were done. Now the tree skirt for this looks like birch bark and has a couple moose on it. IT. SLIDES. ALOT. So I can tear through the kitchen around the corner and hit that thing & whoosh! slide. Every morning, Momma has to un crunkle it & fix it nice. Just for me to crunkle it up again. We don't even have our stocking up, but Momma whispered that we will still get a lil somethin. Wishing everyone the Merriest Greetings a kitty can wish - enjoy the magic of the season. The Tigman

Thanks to my friends for all of our gifties. Momma could not sign in the couple times she tried before the holiday, and yesterday too. Turkapalooza went off without a hitch. Tons of turkey as usual, and while I didn't want any - Maizy & Felix snarfed some. Smitty never likes anything but kitty food. The human sister was home, and her pal from Canada came in to celebrate with us. She has not been here for a couple years, and to Momma & The Dad, she is like an adopted daughter, so it was great fun. I like her too, she also has a kitty, and she knows how to give a good chin scratch. There was also another friend that came, who would have spent Thanksgiving completely alone, as he really has no family. So of course - welcome arms! So Momma was happy feeding the kids (even though they are all around 30, they r still kids) They were each here almost a week. So now things have quieted down. Time to take the Christmas things out. I have been pretty good, considering all the hullaballoo around here. We want to say that we are so thankful for all of our friends, and we are so happy to know you. Here's to hoping things steadily improve round here, so we can get back to party fun time!
Stay cozy my friends! (it is COLD here - we had 18 degrees! brrr!)
Luvs, a Tiggie trying very hard to be good for Santa

So it seems that the new year may bring a new & improved Catster! Whew, that is really good news, cuz it has been so tuff to stay patient. It has gotten SOOO COOLD round here. It was like 16 the other day! I wanted out real bad, so Momma said ok fine ya chucklehead, and opened the door. I was in & out in probably 2.5 seconds. My toesies was cold! I must have had a can of food or two that did not like my tummy. I ate it, but I was sick several times that same day. The next day I had a different can, and the same thing. It is a good brand, FussieCat. Momma thinks my bladder inflammation was flaring up (I had a couple accidents - sorry Momma) She gave the last 2 of those cans to the minions, and boy did they enjoy that. Perhaps it was the mussels in there. I don't know. Momma has been cleaning in the basement to prepare for turkey day. She cannot figure out where all the junk comes from. We have been thinking much about all of our friends, and we do pop in and out. Human sister will be back from her Michigan job. (she did not like it much) and she got a job with the DuPage Forest Preserve. It is just what she enjoys, and right now it is part time, but since she is still taking some classes online, it works. And she told Momma she will help go through some stuff & put it on ebay or craigslist to sell. Have a blessed holiday, and luv you all.
