December 27th 2008
Chasing moths, bird watching, catching invisible mice, playing chase, dog baiting.
Dogs in his room. This is the cat's place. How dare they come in! Were they invited?
Bell balls, Leah's ears & tail, blind cords, silk flower tops, and old stuffed toy of Thomasina's very small, etc.
Favorite Nap Spot:
On the bed, in the window, in the top of the closet, in Morse's room in my secret hiding place, in Thomasina's old feral box.
Shredded chicken, dry food with the garden greens, sardines & that Brandon Farms 95% sardine stuff.
My claws are long and sharp and I can shred moths, which are very tasty to eat.
My name is Takoda Crow and I am a foster here until my pawrents can take me home with them permanently. Mainly I hang with Thomasina and Leah in their room though I am male. Sometimes I hand out in Morseâ€™s room. My story I will leave for another time mainly, but I am a Siamese kitten of a feral Siamese cat. Not nearly as wild as my Mother cat and certainly not the wild thing my father Siamese cat is. They were a breeding pair, a mated pair that escaped and went for the woods to live off the land. Though not quite as feral as Thomasina, I am still & yet wild and hate cameras hence my first picture. I have a sister cat also Siamese who has already been adopted out but they havenâ€™t decided on a name. My story is very strange but I wonâ€™t finish it here just yet. My Mother cat was supposed to be spayed after caught and because she was so very wild her people didnâ€™t think it odd when she hid out in the closet a great deal and didnâ€™t want to have much to do with them only letting them pet her head every now and then. Like Mel the second Mom of Thomasina after Mother, her people Aiyanaâ€™s people thought they were hallucinating cats but they were hallucinating kittens who were growing and became suspicious and one day tracked us down. They also noticed the litter boxes were full to often and that Aiyana was eating a great deal of food. So they trapped us. They werenâ€™t too terribly unhappy and sought out friends who wanted kittens and wondered why Lokiâ€™s (father) and Aiyanaâ€™s (mother) people her former people had told them she was spayed so they tracked down the vet but thatâ€™s another story for another time.
My Mother Aiyana and my father Loki lived in the woods as long as they can remember but they do remember people from the time they were kittens. They are both very wild creatures and call this time that the people have them "the time of captivity." I will add to this story as time goes on....

Have a great new suit that I got on the Australia Cruise when we went shopping C&D Cruise Lines. Was supposed to get to wear it to the P*I*F annifursary party but, sigh, David Dad fell asleep waiting for Dion The CatDog & Meli Mom & BabyCat Calliope & Daddy Rob to contact him telling them they were on the way to the party or there & they just never made it. If he had known they weren't going to make it & still had company he could have attended for us all he said even if some got less time than us in the group or could have gone over & kept their company occupied & let us play with all the other cats there & wouldn't that have been a blast? Still wanted to show off my new tux especially since I've waited so long for it! Morse looks cool in his tux & Pinto has one but I've had to go to parties in my jeans as one suitable wasn't found for me until we went to Australia. Didn't know Australia was known for its clothing but they do have their own fashion week & some rising designers say our peoples. Caelian got a tuxedo too, but at least he didn't have to wait as long as we for his HuCat new clothes! After all, the Kitthaven Estates Ice Cream Social had been a semi formal event & there I was in my jeans & almost didn't get to go because I couldn't find suitable clothing although your own fur was acceptable too but we couldn't get the picture changed to one of better own fur photos!
Got to go home for a day & part of another & play! Thomasina & Caelian Kian & I played with Lilly Cat & Inspector Morse & even got to see BabyCat Calliope & Leah for awhile & play with them too! We played with Crow Raven & we chased the dogs around who weren't too happy to see a bunch of cats at the house for the day like we were having a huge cat party! They got to go outside & play on their tie out lines for a few hours while Mother went out to check on them when she could. But then the law came, really, law looking for someone on the next road & not talking cops & they parked their cars in a line down the next road & watched this house that's been empty -- like whoever it was would appear at their house with all those strange cars parked in a line down the road. Don't you think that might have been a clue to whomsoever that something was up? Hmm. Should I go to my house? Who are those strange people standing around outside? We were just very happy that it wasn't a news media covered event whatever was going on. People walked by & tried to stop & talk to them & they just shooed them away like they were the cats or dogs. We never did find out what was going on but they were there a couple of times on Saturday & then again on Sunday & left unhappy as the house stayed empty on the next road --- next road to Meli Mom's & Mother's road. They got out of their cars & went over & knocked on the door several times & walked all around that house & looked in the windows. They walked around & talked to some of the neighbors but not all. Why? No idea. Mother went outside & they came over & told her to go back in the house one of the guys did because it would ruin things, spoil it. Ruin what & spoil what? She asked them what was going on & they said they couldn't really tell her so she wondered when she got back inside if they even knew what was going on. Surprise? Think that once they parked their cars in a line all element of suprise was gone!
But we still had fun playing and we had fun taking turns getting into window & bird watching and staring at those strange people with the binoculars on the next road. Uh, they were close to that house so exactly why did they need binoculars? Was that a pretending to be bird watchers sort of thing? Our people said law in this state or state law is kind of whacked & crazy. Yeah, you think? Meanwhile we had fun tormenting the dogs when they were in the house & chasing them around until they decided did Pinto & Dion that they didn't want to play. Well have to go nap since we need to get up late as we're nocturnal lately. We will need our rest so we can run & play around the house while our people sleep & play the cat version of Marco Polo on the floors & not in a pool. One of us yowls from a distant place & then the other cat tries to find the yowler in the dark -- that is until our people turn on the light & start fussing that we're making too much noise. Of course we try to wait until they get back to sleep to play again. Sometimes they get up again & start fussing & then we get to play cat hide 'n seek so we hide from the people & are very quiet while they look under sofas & beds & table cloths trying to find us -- like we're going to come out when they're yelling that way! Gives them a chance to have a nice late night or middle of the night snack though & to sit & talk for awhile though they mutter strangely & seem oddly grouchy some of those times.
Yowls! Takoda Crow

Meli Mom is really getting annoyed with the Mother person since I came home, but one of the friends suggested to Mother & didn't ask Meli Mom that they participate in socializing two older kittens that were quite shy, a shy little lady cat who is sweet yet hissy & a male cat who likes to hide out, so I was home & Mom came in & talked to me & was so happy to see me. Then she went to sleep to take a nap after soaking her feet since they still swell off & on from those old ant bites & the sores are just finally healing fully on her feet. When she got up, I was gone again & this lady cat was the only one there so she fussed at Mom. Overnight I was back & having a ball playing with Lilly Cat. Mom went out to walk the dogs & she got home & Mother didn't say a word to her but when Mom opened the door, Mother said there's something I need to tell you. Too late. Mom looked in the room & I'm back over at David Dad's playing with Thomasina & Caelian Kian & having a ball, but I do miss Mom. Mother told her that the cutest cats were in the room & they are cute -- half Himalayan but the fur isn't as long due to the half Siamese part. Cute things said Mother & Meli Mom says yes, and they're having a blast says Mother playing & chasing Lilly Cat all over the place into Mother's bedroom & back into the front bedroom. One male & one female & Meli Mom says even if you're moving don't you get any ideas about keeping them. Mother says no, they'll be for someone though & was very secretive. Who? Don't know but they are feisty kitty cats & Mom said she knew before Mother told her that they were half Himalayan & not just because but okay partly because we have Himalayan angel cat furiends -- short little legs & those compact Himalayan style bodies & Himalayans are Persian crossed with Siamese but these have an added Siamese cross so the fur is longer than a Siamese not quite as long as a Balinese like Caelian Kian -- a Balinese is just a long haired Siamese cat & some are a great deal fluffier than a Siamese as Caelian is around the face & hind quarters -- but their fur is longer than the Siamese still & yet plus they have these Himalayan cross Siamese faces. Mom says she doesn't know what Mother is up to but she did assure her that she wasn't trying to give me Crow away, just trying to help out with these cute little cats. Mother has approached them as they're half wild things, & has managed to pet them & pet them though the shy little female gave her a nice claw swipe on the hand which surprised her since that's the shy one. All she did was try to pat her back & she hissed & had a catniption fit over it, but later she did let her pet her head & even grabbed her hands to sniff of them the way half wild ones often do just as Thomasina still does to complete strangers that she might allow in her inner circle of people friends. The male didn't scratch just stood his ground & fluffed his back if he didn't want her close at that moment but he doesn't like to hide there unless he has to hide. Mother says he adores Lilly Cat & sleeps right up against her part of the time & she & the female may get a little hissy but they love to play chase & love to bat at the decapitated silk flower tops & to get into trouble together.
Yes, I will be home again & one day the half Himalayans will go back to David's friends for awhile & Mom says she doesn't understand why they're being held for Mother & it has been suggested that yet a different one of the same kind might be suitable for her. She says the day we move into another place out in the country yes, that could occur. Good because the one she has just met & that hasn't really stayed there is my friend great playful male guy but not the one there now. Yes, I get to come home & stay one day. Meli Mom says Mother needs to consult her though she does know that Mother wouldn't let just anyone take us & let us have play dates with their cats.
Yowl! Takoda Crow & Banshee Howls! Caelian Kian
NOTE: David Dad says Crow Raven will be your name cat who adores Meli Mom. He says the little female cat Himalayan cross is not from the same litter either, not from the same parents & that the other male is Crow Raven's brother.
Another Note: Now eventually Crow Raven will let Meli Mom know that he will go on these pages, but other cats that belong to other people may have a voice here at times within other cats' diaries but eventually they will have their own pages on other Catster accounts. Originally, this account was just intended for the cats of Meli Mom & Mother, but things happen in life for which we do not plan. It was not planned that BabyCat Calliope would become Daddy Rob's cat & was not known that he would not have a Catster account until he had a Dogster one -- Jaden Jaguar will go on these pages but any other cats will have to wait says Mama Michelle until they have their own account & she put her foot down hard on that one & had her own human version of a Catniption fit. She is mad that Daddy Rob is taking so long to realize that is indeed a cat person. Oh, and Daddy Rob -- just because you didn't get along with Lilly Cat doesn't mean that Mama Michelle won't have that Oriental cat she has always wanted because she is now utterly determined to have one as you have been exposed to one -- says you can learn to adapt Mr. Cat person. For the time being... well, understood for now. Meli Mom can just have a cat tantrum & pull out her hair (you'll be fine Meli Mom -- all will sort out in the end & Crow Raven adores you...) and meant in jest so don't get stressed about the merry-go-round of cats. Fate my dear, fate.

Once upon a time we cats had no use for man. We lived in the forests the trees the caves the mountains in hidden places behind waterfalls & by water by streams. We were happy without man & we kept our eye on man from a distance & knew him to be violent & vile, a creature on two legs that stole our food from the rivers & had no true respect for the earth or the land though some said they did. The Indians in North America were closest to our hearts & beliefs or some were. We kept our distance & had nothing to do with man & we were very happy. We had our own secrets that we kept & our own nature worship & primitive cat dance ceremonies that remain in the memories of some cats like Thomasina & BabyCat Calliope. People noticed our great hunting skills & wanted to enslave us to have us work for them, but that was before the great divide in thought. We stayed our distance & when we failed at hunting some days, some nights some of our great numbers crept up to the human campfires & stole food or even begged & received food. In exchange these strange ones curled up to these people & kept them warm at night especially at their feet. But truly I get ahead of myself as that's when the Divide, the great rift occurred...
