. . . mi mum's [Elvira Rose-Marie] little kitten - 'Precious'




Nice Kitty, Angel went and hid under the Bed when the Plumbers came here to work in the Kitchen(hooked up an icemakers water line and a new faucet), She couldn't have been scared of the bill as It was only $118.94 and not the $200.00 I'd been told It could be in a phone estimate, So I save $81.06 total! Yippee I have Hot Water and soon hopefully ICE too.

Here are some pictures of the cats that Miranda and I have.

Artemis and Shadow are two older ladies (over 10 years each) who Miranda adopted from a shelter well before I met her. Artemis has suffered a few health problems in the past, and took a little while to get used to the new home when we moved a couple of months ago, but she's adjusted well.

Loki was due to be the first we adopted in the new house (the old apartment had a two pet limit). We'd agreed to take him on from an older couple, who acquired him in a most unusual manner - he was found under the bonnet of the couple's car just after a 20 minute journey. He was already weaned, but still very young. He proved a bit rambunctious for them though - we renamed him to Loki because he is all over the place, and is definitely a 'no fear' kitty! He has an especial fondness for anything dairy - cheese, milk, ice cream, anything he can get his paws and face into! We try and keep him off the normal moo juice, but occasionally as a treat we put some stuff that's been formulated for cats down.

We got Apollo a day or two before getting Loki, because we thought that perhaps a similarly aged friend for him would be good, rather than have him bothering the older ladies all the time. We went to a local PetSmart that has a rotating display of shelter kitties who are up for adoption, and found him as part of a litter nicknamed the 'fire ants', due to the colouration of the males. He's a lovely cat that really likes to curl up on my lap. His special trick is when I play with him with a dangly toy - he's happy to jump 2 - 3 feet in the air from a standing start to try and get to it!

When we got Apollo, I was a little sad to see him wander about as if looking for his littermates. Mir and I debated it a bit and decided that we could take on two more, so we went back to the lady who was fostering them and picked out two more from the same litter, Keegan and Toffee. Both were very shy when we got them, and Keegan still is a bit skittish, but they've settled in and can both be very affectionate. Keegan especially loves the fountain we installed so the cats can drink from running water, to the extent where he'll happily stick his head under the flow, or sit on top of it and drink from there.

Finally, a few pics of the cat I owned in the UK are here. Fezzik was a lovely cat, but I wasn't able to spend a lot of time with him overall as a couple of years after I adopted him, I had to move and ended up in a place where I couldn't have pets. Some good friends agreed to look after him for me, and I was able to visit him once in a while. I like to think that he recognised me each time, as he was always came out to see me and was happy to be petted.

He died suddenly in mid 2007. Apparently he was healthy (active, eating, etc) one day and found dead on my friends' kitchen floor the next, in a pose that at least indicated it was sudden and fairly peaceful.

I hope you enjoy these pics!

I just came to the conclusion that If I owned a Black cat again I'd name Him or Her Felix. :D

LOL! I got this in an email today:

Excerpts from a dogs diary:

Day number 180
8:00 am - OH BOY! DOG FOOD! MY FAVORITE!

5:30 pm - OH BOY! MOM! MY FAVORITE!

Day number 181
8:00 am - OH BOY! DOG FOOD! MY FAVORITE!

9:40 am - OH BOY! A WALK! MY FAVORITE!
10:30 am - OH BOY! A CAR RIDE! MY FAVORITE!

1:00 pm - OH BOY! THE YARD! MY FAVORITE!
4:00 pm - OH BOY! THE KIDS! MY FAVORITE!
5:00 pm - OH BOY! DOG FOOD! MY FAVORITE!
5:30 pm - OH BOY! MOM! MY FAVORITE!

Excerpts from a Cat's Diary:
DAY 752 - My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects. They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while I am forced to eat dry cereal. The only thing that keeps me going is the hope of escape, and the mild satisfaction I get from ruining the occasional piece of furniture. Tomorrow I may eat another houseplant.

DAY 761 - Today my attempt to kill my captors by weaving around their feet while they were walking almost succeeded, must try this at the top of the stairs. In an attempt to disgust and repulse these vile oppressors, I once again induced myself to vomit on their favorite chair ... must try this on their bed.

DAY 765 - Decapitated a mouse and brought them the headless body, in attempt to make them aware of what I am capable of, and to try to strike fear into their hearts. They only cooed and condescended about what a good little cat I was...Hmmm. Not working according to plan.

DAY 768 - I am finally aware of how sadistic they are. For no good reason I was chosen for the water torture. This time however it included a burning foamy chemical called "shampoo." What sick minds could invent such a liquid. My only consolation is the piece of thumb still stuck between my teeth.

DAY 771 - There was some sort of gathering of their accomplices. I was placed in solitary throughout the event. However, I could hear the noise and smell the foul odor of the glass tubes they call "beer". More importantly I overheard that my confinement was due to MY power of "allergies." Must learn what this is and how to use it to my advantage.

DAY 774 - I am convinced the other captives are flunkies and maybe snitches. The dog is routinely released and seems more than happy to return. He is obviously a half-wit. The bird on the other hand has got to be an informant, and speaks with them regularly. I am certain he reports my every move. Due to his current placement in the metal room his safety is assured. But I can wait, it is only a matter of time...


This is my LOL if the day...
- Luke.

There was a price to be paid for this photograph of our Kitty, not to be paid immediately, but some time, some where Princess Heidi will have her revenge....



I am a kitty lover, this was just too hard to resist.

After a few minutes It'll be a fading memory I'd think, after that She may not remember It at all as long as It isn't repeated.
