I heard my feral meow today. She's been around since last Spring and this is the first time I ever heard her meow. She and the currently pregnant new stray were meowing at each other and meowing at me. The feral sounded just like her kittens, very high-pitched.

Hey STLCards.. I watched your little video - how cute is that! She looks so friendly.

And mornin, all. Day three of the pumpkin rescue. No more hissing or growling. Came home yesterday to an open bedroom door (bad Cinders! lol) - and mister pumpkin head was curled up next to the dryer downstairs next to the laundry. He didn't seem particularly disturbed, no idea how he got there! Whether he was chased, or wandered around taking advantage of an empty house is beyond me. Oh well. The fiancee scooped him up and carried him back upstairs for the night where we could keep an eye on him. (he seems to be happy under the bed now) And he went without a fuss. He ate his dinner with everyone else last night (but on a seperate plate) - still haven't seen him use the litterbox, but gosh, he's got to be when I'm not looking. We're on day 3 now! And with the exception of the first night, I haven't found any "accidents" anywhere. Yet...

It's going to be a gross day! Lots of rain and bitter winds. Hey, at least it's not more snow. Off to work.

I dumped the litter box, scrubbed it, and put new litter in there Sunday night, yet I still woke up to my sister's cat scratching in my room. He likes to pee in there. I don't know what he expects from me. The litter box was just changed. None of the other cats have ever done that.

That cat just hates me.

lol, speaking of closets...I entered mine last night to find that Olive had climbed up to the 4th shelf and knocked down the "big bag of stuffing(the kind you put in pillows)". He then proceeded to decorate....

Oh, and last night was "Show and Sign" in my ASL class. I signed about my kitties. I was so excited to tell them that everyone thought they were super adorable. They said "Shut up and feed us, your 2 hours late for our dinner!"


love em...

Fun facts

Famous cat lovers of history:
Sir Winston Churchill (1874-1965) - The statesman enjoyed eating with his ginger kitten, Jock. Servants were often sent to find the pet so meals cound begin.

Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965) - Although left-handed, Dr. Schweitzer would often write prescriptions with his right hand because his cat Sizi liked to sleep on his left arm and could not be disturbed.

Ernest Hemingway (1899 - 1961) - Owner of 30 cats. One of Ernest Hemingway's most unusual cat was a six-toed cat given to him by a ship's captain. The descendants of Hemingway's original cats still live in his estate.

Sir Isaac Newton (1642 - 1727) - Sir Isaac Newton, the scientist who first described the principle of gravity, also invented the swinging cat door for the convenience of his many cats.
