Arrival Story: Tweety was adopted through the Petsmart people. I found him online. At the time I had a 3-year old who needed a playmate so needed anoher cat who would get along with cats. It was a bit rough for a while, Tweety was very, very shy. He had also been to 2 other homes, so I was determined he would find a home with us. Persistence and patience paid off. He is a full-fledged member of the family. Oh, and by the way, Tweety is gay!

Today is a special day. It is the anniversary of my brofur Aragorn's Bridge Crossing. He was only 4 and I only knew him for a year, but what a year! Aragorn was my idol. He was everything I want to be in a cat. Though I must admit it was a very rocky start. But he was the first to make contact with me even if it wasn't so kind. He used to steal my food. You see, I was very scared when I first came here and hid under the bed for several weeks. Meowmy would lie on the floor and talk to me (hehehe) but Aragorn, he would come under the bed and steal my food. And when I moved under the table downstairs he would still steal my food! Meowmy was worried I wasn't eating, but as you can see, I managed to get enough.
The first time I came out from under the table and into the kitchen, it was to be with Aragorn and from that day I followed him everywhere. We would be lying together and meowmy would call him and I would watch him go to meowmy to get petted. Soon, I would follow him and guess what? She would pet me too! It felt good. Aragorn liked to sleep on the cat tree and I would follow him there. He was the first one in meowmy's face when she woke up, and I would follow and be second.
Aragorn was the most adventurous cat I had ever met. He would do just about anything, which sometimes scared meowmy. I'm not that advertous but when I try something new, meowmy is always happy and proud of me and she tells me so.
Aragorn taught me that I can be myself and meowmy would still love me. He taught me I can trust meowmy, though I will always be more cautious than he ever was. He taught me that love comes in many forms and that people aren't always mean to kitties.
I used to watch him walk across the room. I think he was practicing to be an angel because he just seemed to float with that confident prance that made it seem as if he wasn't touching the ground. The way he would jump to the highest place, the rafter in the ceiling, and look down on us all with what can only be described as a knowing smile. Meowmy still wonders why he was taken so soon but I know. He was here so that I would find my furever home. Because, you see, I was adopted for him, so that he would have a playmate his age to play and romp with, and because I also needed to know that love is freely given, and there are people out there who want to love me, just the way I am, with no exceptions and no expectations.
I loved my brofur Aragorn and I always will. He was a very special kitty who touched many lives in his short one. He left some mighty big pawprints that I know I will never be able to fill, but that is alright. I'm putting my little ones all over meowmy's heart and everytime she sees me, I remind her of him, and how much more there still is to give. And because of Aragorn, I am the lucky recipient of meowmy's heart, one piece at a time.
I have been honored as the Cat of the Month for Tabbies with Tudes! Can you believe it? Little ole me!
According to meowmy, I have the least amount of tude of any of us! I am very accommodating to all my brofurs and sisfurs, I wait patiently for food, though I must admit, I am the first to remind meowmy if she gets busy, hehehe
This month it will be 2 years at my furever home and my 4 year birthday. I must admit, it was a rough start, but things just keep getting better and better. I have my older brofur, Chandler Ray to snuggle with. He is the best. Then I have my younger brofur, Toby, who will also be 1 this month, to run, play and wrestle with. It is the best of all worlds! What more could a tabby want?
I don't want to forget, my furriend, Hazel Lucy, sent me a very special leprechaun hat in celebration! Thank you Hazel Lucy!
Today, I walked over to Meowmy on the couch and jumped up on the back, next to her. This made meowmy verrrrry happy! I usually just go over to get attention when I's reminding her it's time to eat. Today I did it just because I luv's my meowmy.
It is a very good day today as we have sun, which we haven't had for a few days. It's so nice to stay downstairs and bask in the sun. This is California for goodness sake.
Meowmy said she might go do some Christmas shopping today. Hope she comes home wif stuff for us! Meowmy says it's going to be a sad Christmas as she doesn't have a job, but we all likes havin her around all the time.
