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!

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.

It's almost that time! Actually, Momma has had the decorations up since OCtober 1st, and she says she is ready to take them down, she is tired of them. LUckily that Turkey day is a month away. Lots to do. This weekend they are getting tile for the backsplash in the kitchen. Somehow it seems like it is always the month before, when stuff gets done.....It is to be a beautiful weekend here in Chi-Town, so MOmma says maybe one last dinner on the screened porch, and bbq chicken. Chicken? Ruffy, I will have a bite for you! Human sister will be home next week to celebrate her birthday. Then Mommas is the week after. Aside from that stuff, just been enjoying watching the leaves fall, and sniffing the fall air. There is a certain smell of the leaves & sunshine in the fall. Those of you that are in the warm climes don't get to sniff this, but it really does have a "fall" smell in the air. Kind of like wet moss and grass, and sweet. There is a Yankee candle that smells much like it. And the crunchy leaves. I love to stomp through them when I go out on my leash. I saw a BIG possum the other night when The Dad had me outside. I kinda followed him as he ambled around the yard. The Dad said it was funny, like I wasn't sure what the heck that thing was. Well Momma is off to do a few errands, then she will be putting some new tiles on the bar counter in the basement & painting. So I will say hello in a few days! Miss you all!


goodbye to an old friend

Catster has not let us sign in the past couple days, and I tried so hard. I knew I was about to lose my old friend Ruffy. I cannot even send a gift today.

Ruffy, my friend, I will miss you - your words of wisdom have been heard by many, and have been a guide to us. I will look up at the sky and see you, twinkling in the stars, keeping an eye on us all. I am glad you are not in pain, but it does hurt to let you go. We send our hugs to your parents, as much as they knew the time was coming, it is still so hard. We salute you our Wise Poet, and look forward to seeing you still among the pages of Catster. Rest well my friend...your journey begins again.....from your fellow orangey team mate Tigger & family.
