Spotted Tabby

Mom's fuzzy purple robe/fuzzy blanket. To sit on the screened porch, and to jump up on any available surface. A high shelf is seen as a challenge. He loves to go for walks on his leash.

When Mom won't take me OUT! if there is one of the outdoot kitties in MY YARD

Favorite Toy:
Da Bird. I climbed to the top of Mom's closet to get to it! scratchers & catnip

Favorite Nap Spot:
I took over a basket on top of the filing cabinet in Mom's office - so she can no longer use it. I also have discovered how to get into the ceiling in the basement and I like to sleep up there next to the heat vent. Anywhere I can curl up in a box!

Favorite Food:
tuna & turkey and I must confess, I like to get a taste of Mom's oatmeal and one tsp of milk when Mom has cereal.

I can open the closet door, & I try to turn the knob on the back door to go on the screen porch. I also like to drag towels, placemat, or blanket through the house & stash them behind the couch.I tried to drag a king size comforter up the basement stairs


Arrival Story:
My son had heard meowing a few days earlier outside his window. We were outside one morning and saw little legs under our truck. We have a few feral cats around, so we were surprised when I called out & he came running! he meowed & rubbed on our legs and purred so loud he almost fell over. He was a filthy scrawny mess. We fell for him instantly and I took him to the vet, he had fleas, a respiratory infection and his eyes were infected. But after a few months of meds, good food & lots of love, he has grown into a wonderful kitty.

I have hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and am on medicine which I take like a good boy. I survived a bladder blockage 2 times. My heart actually improved & I am doing great!

Some thoughts from a kitty's perspective

your cat eats that?

I am playing along with Meeps game

I like a few laps of milk if Momma has cereal, and I like iceberg lettuce. If I could get away with it, I would eat corn husks, but Momma says NO!!! I love cat grass, but that is not really unusual- so I guess the lettuce is the odd one.

Hey buds - I miss you all!

hey thanks from us all for any gifts from our pals. IT is pretty sad that here is Momma on a Saturday night, working. But it is that backed up. Had a good holiday. The human brother was here & they had ribs & shrimp. We got some nice treats to try. Momma says they are grain free & made in US - all I know is that they are YUMMMO. We was fightin over em. Maizy got into trouble today, cause Momma happened to turn in her office chair, which then faces the kitchen, and Maisy was on the counter, with HER HEAD IN THE COOKIE CONTAINER licking powedered sugar off a cookie. So trying hard not to laugh - she was scooted off the counter, cookie removed, and containers checked for seal. A few minutes later, Momma hears a thud, and there is Maiy now trying to bite the lid & pull it off! That girl likes her sweet stuff. So now the containers have a heavy weight on them so they cannot be opened. Man, that makes me look like an angel.....Happy New Year to All!!!

Hey all - busy, hectic, whirlwind
these words describe things around here lately. Momma has too much list, and not enough time. For some reason too she is waay behind on everything (including purchasing me gifties) so this will be short. (and she is the kind that has shopping done before turkeyday)
We luvs all our pals and our soon to be pals. Hope that the holidays, whichever you may celebrate bring you all peace and joy in your heart. May the new year bring us all a fresh start and some funds would be nice too. Just in case we aren't able to get back on here before the big day. We think of you all the time, and hopefully, soon will be able to get back here more regularly. Things have just gotten too big to deal with, and Momma needs help, but cannot hire another office person. So it will be work all night a few days - THe Dad has hardly even been home due to working so much. Anymeow
We have been having a ton of fun this year - The Dad did not have time to go & get a humungus tree, so Momma & human sister went to Menards and found a nice little balsam for $24 bucks, and decorated it with the "northwoods" ornaments. That stuff usually goes on a tree in the basement, but Momma said let's mix it up & go with what is easeir than all the other individual wrapped ones, etc. So in an hour they were done. Now the tree skirt for this looks like birch bark and has a couple moose on it. IT. SLIDES. ALOT. So I can tear through the kitchen around the corner and hit that thing & whoosh! slide. Every morning, Momma has to un crunkle it & fix it nice. Just for me to crunkle it up again. We don't even have our stocking up, but Momma whispered that we will still get a lil somethin. Wishing everyone the Merriest Greetings a kitty can wish - enjoy the magic of the season. The Tigman
