Does anyone know where I can find a copy of The Scratching Post? Mom realized too late that we weren't signed up for it, and it sounds like it has some interesting stuff in it!

Whew. That tiny terror is gone! Mom found a home for the little one-eyed siamese kitty, and I couldn't be happier! Even though I'm three times the size of that cat, he terrified me! Mom tried to keep us separated for the most part, but we live in a pretty small apartment, so we were forced to interact occassionaly. And that little guy took over the bed! I couldn't even sleep in my spot for THREE days! The nerve.

Mo's mom - Monida has done really well with other cats, and even a big Lab dog, but for some reason this tiny 5-pound kitty terrified her and she would run everytime he took a stop toward her. But now he has a good home where he will have two other kitty siblings and two children to play with. I'm so happy for him! And now Mo can go back to being an only cat and ruling the apartment.

Thanks for the advice everyone!! I really appreciate it.


Some advice?

Monida's mom here.

I'm hoping some of my catster friends can help me out. Today I rescued a one-eyed siamese from the shelter, where he's been for the past month. I don't know why I feel in love with this guy, but I so want to find him a home. My plan is to foster him until I can find a great place for him.

However, he's so cute and I'm already worried about finding someone who will truely care for him. But I feel so guilty because I feel like I'm betraying Monida, who doesn't know why this other cat is suddenly here eating her food and sitting in her spots. We finally had a routine and now I'm worried everything with her will change.

Have any other kitty parents felt this way? Any advice?

Also, has anyone ever fostered kittens before? How do you deal with giving it away? I just know this is going to end in heartbreak for me.

Thanks everyone!

Oh my, I'm so behind on my diary. And so much has been going on.

I had to go to the vet last week to get my ears cleaned and you'll never believe what he said. He said I wasn't fluffy, I was fat! *gasp* I have to lose three pounds! Mom took away my bottomless bowl of crunchies and now I'm staarrrving!! Stupid vet.

He also sent mom home with solution to clean my ears out with at home. Ha! Like that will ever happen. There's no way I'll let her stick a wet cottonball in my ear! (Note from mom: If anyone has any tips on cleaning cats' ears, they would be greatly appreciated. For some reason, Mo's ears tend to get gunky pretty regularly.)

I also need to send out some long-overdue thank yous for presents.

Thanks you to:

Pounce for my great big hug!
Charlie for the snowman!
The family of Serafina Tilly and Mafia Princess for the heart!
The family of Ava Corrine (Guardian Angel), Andy ( Anderson Montgomery), Arli (Arlington Mackenzie), Augie ( August Miller) and more for the heart!
The family of Gracie Mae (10/2/93-1/9/09), Brighid (10/02/93-5/20/06), Siouxsie ©, Fela Kiti ® 5/1/06-7/16/09 and more for the delicious shrimpy!
My new friend Tiny for the beautiful gold star
Henry for the pretty rainbow star! Hope you're feeling OK!

Thanks everyone! I hope I didn't forget anyone!

Stay warm kitties!


Ho ho ho!

OMC guys! I met Santa Paws today! It was so awesome!

I was a bit suspicious when mom brought out the carrier and made me go inside. I was even more curious about what was going on when she took me outside in the snow. Then we drove to PetSmart, and I was a very good kitty and didn't meow once!

Once we got there, mom was a little worried about how I would act, but I seemed to enjoy myself. I let several people hold me and give me pets! I even gave out some headbonks!

Everyone commented on how nice of a kitty I am and how I'm, well, let's just say I'm not starving ...

Mom got a cute photo and will try to post one soon!

Hope every kitty is staying warm!


I'm thankful for ...

My bestest friend Pounce tagged me. Here are 5 things I am thankful for.

1. I am thankful my mom came to the shelter with her friend and that she took the hint when I tapped the card on my cage. She couldn't resist me, and now I have a forever home!

2. I am thankful for a warm place to live and a food dish that's always full ... hey! Mom! Time for a refill!

3. I am thankful for my wonderful Catster friends. You guys are so great!

4. I am thankful for cheesecake Jello. Yummy, yummy, yummy!

5. I am thankful for mom's super comfy bed. Sure beats sleeping on the floor and it's definitely better than outside!

Hope everyone has a blessed Thanksgiving!


Getting to know me

This is fun!

What is your name? Monida. I'm named after a town in Montana right on the Idaho border. It's fitting since mom has lived in both states.

What other nicknames do you have? Mo. Little stinker.

What breed are you? A calico domestic shorthair

Where were you born? Probably Idaho, but I'm not telling.

Where do you live now? Idaho

What is your favorite toy? Chapstick tubes

What is your favorite store? PetSmart. That's where mom gets all my toys and treats!

How many toys do you have? Too many. Mom tried to get me a toy for my birthday but I had them all! :)

Wet or dry food? Dry with wet sometimes for a treat.

What is your favorite color? Being a calico, I'm kinda partial to orange and black.

Are you bad when nobody's looking? Ha! I'm bad when people are looking. Have you seen my video of me opening the cupboards?

Are you friendly? Very! Give me a treat and I'm your best friend!

Are you overweight? I'm pleasantly plump

Do you eat people food? Sometimes when mom lets me, which isn't very often since I've become pleasantly plump ...

Do you eat bugs? Yummy! Yes! They're delicious!

Do you live with other animals? Nope. But mom says if we ever move to a bigger place I might get a friend.

Do you like to exercise? Sometimes. I like to chase the laser light for a little while.

Do you like car rides? No! Mom has to sedate me if we go anywhere longer then five minutes away.

Do you get into stuff? Oh, yes. Cupbords, shelves ... I like to knock stuff off, so mom had to put away all her knicknacks.

Do you like to swim? Nope - but I'm slowly becoming more brave of water.

What is your favorite treat? Jello cherry cheesecake. I start purring the minute mom takes it out of the fridge.

Do you shed? Yes. But only my white fur on the black furniture.

What's the funniest thing you ever did? I learned how to open the cupboards and drawers in the kitchen. I'm a very nosy cat.

What's the bravest thing you ever did? I stood up to my mom's brother's dog. She thought I wanted to play but I showed her! *whap! whap!*

Are you neutered? I've been spayed.

Are you a social animal? Yes, but I don't get many chances to socialize.

Collar or harness? I have a harness but I don't like it. If mom puts it on I lay down and won't move.

Retractable or regular leash? Regular. But it doesn't get much use.

Ceramic, Metal or Plastic bowls? Metal and ceramic

Do you sleep in a crate? Oh no! Sometimes I sleep in my carrier, but very rarely.

Do you have a bed? I have a big fluffy bed mom bought me on my first day home. I have never so much as set a paw into it. I like to sleep on her bed instead.

Do you have a doghouse? No! But sometimes mom says I'm "in the doghouse ..."

Do you belong to any clubs? Some Catster clubs

How does your owner describe you? Cute, silly, talkative, and too smart for my own good.
