Brown Tabby

Playing -- with anything, including his brother, Bobby.

He hates being dumped off someone's lap.

Favorite Toy:
An old handmade knitted ball that I made for Bonnie & Clyde.

Favorite Nap Spot:
On a lap -- any lap.

Favorite Food:
Chicken--any form prepared in any way. He's even eaten chicken from chicken salad.

He's very accomplished at Kitty Hockey -- hitting a ball across the floor, catching it, and guiding it with his feet to a position where he can hit it again.


Arrival Story:
Our cat, Clyde, went to the Rainbow Bridge shortly after his 17th birthday. His sister, Bonnie, went to live there two years earlier. We were at the point in our lives when we were ready to say "No more pets." That didn't last long -- the house was so empty. So, we went back to our vet and adopted two 7-month old brothers. They were born at her office and had been waiting for a forever home. While standing at the check-in counter, a very friendly little guy kept trying to crawl into my purse. We inquired about him and, like the two boys we were adopting, he had been born at the vets and on the same day as the brothers, so they had spent their whole lives together. They said a woman was going to adopt him, and they were holding him for her until she returned from vacation. On impulse, I asked them to call me if the adoption fell through. About a week later, we got the call -- Jack was available. So, instead of no pets, we had three.

Jack is the friendliest, most loveable cat I have ever met. He has never seen a stranger. He has to "help" you (and any workman/ repairman who visits) do everything and follows you around like a puppy-dog. Consequently it takes twice as long to do anything as you simply have to pay attention to such a sweet, loveable little boy.

Lives Remaining:
9 of 9

Forums Motto:
Look, an empty lap!

To All My Friends -- Thank You for helping me celebrate my birthday

Yesterday was my birthday, and I really want to thank all of my friends who helped me (and my brothers whose birthdays were also yesterday) celebrate. I got lots of presents:

A ball from Frankie, Grace, Leo and family;
A shrimp from the Bush Furs;
A singing blue bird from Nonny and family;
A ladybug from Emily (my brother Bobby's girlfriend) and her family;
A second blue bird from Daisy, Pete, and the whole family;
A golden heart from Tyson, Mista, Fred, Tazi Moto, Mai Ming, Simba and their family;
A cuppycake from Greyson;
A great big cake from my girlfriend, Vi;
and lots of "Happy Birthdays" from all my group friends.

My brothers and I were thinking last night during our birthday dinner how different our birthdays are now from what they were three years ago. Our Mommy had been visiting Catster for years. She visited some cats' pages almost daily to read their diaries and see their pictures. She followed new cats who joined, and then, she finally gathered her courage and the little bit of puter knowledge she had and added us. WOW!! Did our lives change. All of a sudden, we had FRIENDS! It wasn't just our pawrents and us -- there was a whole caring community of cats to be our friends and to help us celebrate our birthdays and other holidays and to purr for us when we weren't feelin well. We met our awesome girlfriends and found true love (Love you, Vi).

Guess I just wanted to take this opportunity to say how much I appreciate everycat's friendship and Catster for bringing us together. Sure changed our lives!


I surrender!

You'll recall that when Bobby, Teddy and I chose our housekeepers, we called them Mr. & Mrs. H (for Housekeeper). They were more than adequate in their positions, and we decided we made a good choice when we allowed them to live with us.

It wasn't too long before Teddy was totally smitten by Mrs. H and started calling her "Mommy." Then, Bobby casually began dropping a "My Daddy" into our conversations. I thought how silly they were -- humans weren't our pawrents.

I've lived with the H's for over seven years now and since last fall when Mrs. H retired, they have been around our house a lot more. At first, we were all unsettled because they disrupted our routine. But then we began following Mrs. H around all day cause she was always doing interesting things and really needed our help. And Mr. H -- well, I began to notice how much he really does for us. We always have plenty of food; our litter boxes are always clean and never smell bad; he plays with us; and he provides a lap when Mrs. H isn't available.

Yesterday, Mrs. H was sitting on the sofa reading, and I was laying on top of the sofa cushion behind her head. I don't know what overcame me but all of a sudden I wrapped my front legs around her neck, put my head next to her ear and purred. She turned her head and gave me a kiss and I thought "My Mommy." Mommy told Mr. H I was actually purring -- a surprise since I'm not a purrer.

So, I've surrendered and have decided that having a Mommy and Daddy who love me is much better than having just housekeepers. I now think humans make great pawrents!

Got to run -- Daddy's lap is calling my name!

I've been tagged by my very good friend Greyson.

Here is what I am supposed to do.

Name the 5 most annoying things your human does, then tag 5 friends. Here's a few of my Human Pet Peeves....

Oh, my, this is hard. I'm so laid back and happy that I really don't have any pet peeves, but I'll try.

1. I would prefer that when Mr. or Mrs. H sat down, they would stay put. I am a bit put off when I get all situated on a lap and comfy for a long nap and then someone makes me move so they can stand up. I will say, though, that Mrs. H is very considerate. If she wants to get up, she picks me up and then puts me down where she was sitting.

2. I wish they had more time to play with me. We get at least an hour a day (1/2 hr from each of them), but I would play all day, every day, if I could.

4. I wish they would have people come to fix more things around the house. They know how I love to help the repairmen, even though sometimes they don't seem to appreciate my help.

5. ....

Gosh, I can't think of anything else. I have it pretty good at my house, and unlike my whiny brothers, I know it!

Let's see -- who hasn't played this game yet?
