I have been in my furever home for almost two weeks now. Mom and Dad adopted me from PetsMart where the rescue people told them that I was found in an apartment with 27 other kitties. Mom and Dad say I am part feral. Whatever that means.
I was a very sick kitty when I first came to live with Mom and Dad. I am now starting to feel better but I am still a little congested and I'm also having a problem with my ears. I am taking antibiotics and ear drops. Boy do I ever hate medicine.
I have two rooms all to myself and a cat tree that Mom and Dad bought for everyone but since it is in my rooms it is Mine, Mine, Mine. I hang out in the condos most of the time as I feel safe there. I am still scared of Mom and Dad but I am getting better with that every day. I will only let Mom and Dad pet me if I am in the condo and definately no being picked up. When they come to my rooms and I am out running around I run for my condo to hide.
I have met my brothers and sisters a couple of times but Mom and Dad don't want to stress me out too much so they are only allowed to stay for a short time. I like my brother Milo. He is so mellow. He taught me how to climb my tree to the very top perch. My sister Mikki doesn't want to have anything to do with me and when I get too close she hisses. Brother Miko hissed at me and batted me with his paw but I think he will come around eventually. My sister Mimu is a little terror. She hisses and growls at me and chases me under the bed when I start to run away from her. Mom keeps a close eye on her when she visits to make sure she doesn't hurt me. I think I can get her to warm up to me and then maybe we can play together but I think it will take a while.
Mom and Dad are hoping that once my sisters, and brothers, and I get used to each other and I join the family on a full-time basis they will help to teach me that it is safe to be around Mom and Dad. We'll see. I still don't trust humans but that could change over time.
I need to go and take a nap in my condo now so I can get healthy. Talk to you all later.
Aloha and Purrs,

Hi Maui! Congratulations on being a Daily Diary Pick today, with your very first diary entry! I love the title of your diary.
Keep working on getting healthy and on letting your Mom and Dad pet you. I hope you and your brothers and sisters will be getting along and playing with each other soon. (Well, the Olde Furt Mikki probably doesn't want to play but I hope she'll quit hissing at you -- sometimes it's hard for an Olde Furt to change their ways, though.)
Enjoy your cat tree and your special day in Diary Central!
