He made pee pee outside hid box twice today. He has never done that before. Once he did a little outside the box, and once on his way to the box, on the stairs. taking him to the vet at 6. He is eating and acting ok, but get is not young so she can't take chances. He is my best buddy and I love him very much.

Thank you, HQ! I think me and Tiny will have a party tonight with treats and catnip.

I guess I should take the time to talk about my week. It has been raining for a few days, so all of my favorite backyard critters have been missing in action. Maybe I scared them off? I hope not!

One night last week, there was a guest on my back deck. A strange cat! I think it was a kitten, really, but I can't be sure because I only saw his head. When I saw him, I jumped straight up at the screen door. Mommy said I looked like one of those Garfleld dolls that people put on car windows. I don't know though. I have only ever seen a few cars, so I don't know what Mommy is talking about. Anyway, I jumped at that stranger, and I bushed my tail out, and he ran! I hope he's okay. I hope he has a family to live with and they won't let him outside anymore.

For the past two days, I've had a bad case of the crazies. Have any of you cats ever had the crazies? That's where you run around the house like a maniac at full speed, then stop all of a sudden to catch your breath, then do it again? I jumped on Tiny, hoping he would get the crazies too, but no luck. He just wrestled with me for a minute, then he took a nap. Boy, not long ago, he used to run around with me all the time, but since he went to the vet for his thyroid, he doesn't do that anymore. I don't know what a thyroid is, but that's what Mommy says. All I know is he never gets the crazies anymore. Last night I was so tired from running around all day, I fell asleep in Mommy's bed right away. I think I will nap while Mommy is at work so I will be wide awake when she comes home.


Oh , wow! I'm a DDP today!

The other day, I found a cricket. It crawled its way under my screen door somehow. I ran and jumped with it. It was so mucch fun! Then Mommy saw it and she killed it! I couldn't believe it! She gives me everything I want but not a cricket.

Yesterday I found another one. It was halfway under the door. My granddad held me while Mommy went and got that already dead and stuck in the door cricket and kicked it outside. I squirmed away from granddad in the process. Poor granddad got scratched but I didn't mean it. He forgave me and still let me sit in his lap.

Today I waited and waited. No cricket. No even a dead one. I guess Mommy scared them off. I really really really hope I find another one.


Play it again!

I was featured in diary central again today! Who would have ever thought anyone would want to read my innermost thoughts? I haven't even had much to say lately. It's been quiet this week, thank goodness.

I am excited though because my mommy is on vacation this week. That means me and Tiny can spend more time with her. She was out all day today though. What do people do all day outside? She doesn't even bring us back a bird! She does come back some days with a big bag of Fancy Feast, and today was one of those days!


Oh , wow! I'm a DDP today!

Thanks, HQ! Mommy just found out. She was very busy this weekend. One of her best friends lost her husband, and everyone was sad. It was a very hard time. Of course, I did my best to cheer her up hugs and kisses.

I have been getting a lot of rest lately. It's been so hot, the birds and the squirrels and the birds have been keeping a low profile. Me and Tiny are looking forward to cooler weather.


I love to hide!

There is a picture Mommy added of me of my favorite hiding spots. I'm sure no one can see me!

My mommy has been feedng the cats next door while their people are on vacation. That' what I hear, anyway. All I know is hat she comes home stinking like strange cats. Then she tells me how she played with this one neighbor cat named Oreo while she was there. Me and Tiny decided we wouldn't let her see how much it bothered us. I guess those cats have to eat too though. And I guess I would want someone to play with me, too. And I hear this Oreo is fatter than me and needs the excercize.


Hissing mad!

Yesterday I was at the window looking outside, and I saw a neighbor cat outside in a big cage. My Grandmom was talking to the neighbor cat's person, who said that the cat and the dog had fleas and she had given them flea treatment. The person didn't want to take her cat to the vet for a flea dip, and when Grandmom suggested she get a flea comb to use after the treatment, the person said "Do you know what that costs?" Imagine, someone not wanting to buy a flea comb because it cost too much! Not someone who doesn't have six dollars, but someone who doesn't love their cat enough to spend six dollars!

The worst is though, the person wants to get rid of her cat because they have a dog now and they say the cat stays in the basement all the time. I know Mommy said she watched their cat once when they were on vacation, and the cat was down the basement and there was no dog! The neighbor cat is older, and they are okay with just giving her away like she was a shoe that didn't fit! Would she give away one of her kids? Mommy can't take in another cat right now. Someone will take her, and I sure hope that whoever does will appreciate how special she is!

Some people really don't deserve to have any cats! Or dogs either! Shame on them!


It's my anniversary!

Four years ago today, I was found. It was about 4 pm. Mommy saw a young cat outside. That cat was my cat mommy. A few months before, people in the house fown the street were evicted and left all their cats behind. My mommy must have been one of them. Anyway. Mommy followed her and saw that she went in the abandoned yard. Mommy took her food. Then she saw there were kittens! It was me and my four siblings. We were very little, and so scared! My cat mommy wasn't friendly, but she was hungry, so she ate the food and was able to feed us then.

I was too small really to know what was going on. I only know that we went to live in the yard next to Mommy's yard. My cat mommy still had to feed us. No one wanted us to leave the yard because something BAD would happen to us. I have to say, I had a marvelous kittenhood those first few months. We were safe, we had plenty to ear, and lots of time to play. It took a long time for me to trust people, but I am so glad I finally did.

There's more to my story, but right now I'm too tired to tell it. I'm taking a nap in Mommy's lap right now. What a great was to start off my special day.
