Friday Cat Blogging - Wake up call!

A recent Saturday morning event:

Lucinda: Mom, get up. I'm hungry! (purr, headbutt, purr)

Catmomma: Oh no Lucinda, it's too early. Go back to sleep.

Lucinda: sigh Ok (plops down)

A few minutes later -

Lucinda: Mommm, please? (purr, purr, sneeze)

CM: Oh, yuck! Thanks for sneezing on my pillow! Alright, you win.

Moral of the story, the snooze button doesn't always work on my cataclock!

PS: It’s Feline Friday at The Modulator .

Friday cat blogging - A couch for two

When we brought Moe he was shellshocked at first. He came to a house with no cats, no friends or family around him except for Lucinda. He had us humans and it took him time to adapt. Moe hid under the bed for a couple of weeks. I coaxed him out by giving him brushings which he loved. He was just a big boy that no one bothered to get to know. Now, he knows every move we are going to make. He joins me in the bathroom in the morning, and tries to get into Catdads sock drawer. He is a lot of fun and has found his soulmate in Carmela.

Catmomma's story,

I have always loved cats, ever since Miki, the first cat that I remember. He was a Siamese and very devoted to my mother. He put up with my tail pulling and eventually became a good friend.

When I first met my husband, four years ago, he came to the conclusion that I needed cats. I was living in a small apartment that was not suitable for cats. I was cat sitting for a friend's cats and was always talking about cats. So, after we were married for four months, we decided that the time was right to adopt. We wanted adult cats because we did not have the time to house train kittens. We found a local breeder and made an appointment to visit them. There were lots of cats napping in beds around the house. We chose Lucinda (AKA Simply Delicious and Zoom-Zoom) and Moe (sibling of Larry and Curly). Two months later in May 2003, we adopted Carmela (AKA - Scandelous). These cats are well socialized as they grew up with their family all around them.

I look forward to sharing more of their story with all of you.
