Oringe Menice!!!

I am the ORinch meenisss, aka Rufus.  If you can believe it there are no recent pictures of me.  The other cats say you should be able to believe it since you all know how lazy the hooman woman is.  The Tall Man keeps telling her the world needs to hear about me and she needs to teach me to blog but she keeps sighing and falling asleep.  Something about working 2 jobs and going to school at night.  I don't know what any of that is, I just know I rarely see her.

So you all know I weaseled my way into the house right?  They call me "Rufus the Dufus" but I'm smart, really I am!  I knew to attach myself to the Tall Man and that would mean I wasn't going anywhere.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE my Tall Man.  His neck is juicy and tender and lickable.   He hugs really tight too!  My favorite thing to do is to nurse on his neck and purr (even louder than Kaze!).

I'm having trouble understanding this word, so I'm hoping you other cats can help me out.  "NO"?!  Sometimes it is "Rufus NO!"  I really don't get it?  I mean, it is when I scratch my clawrs on the carpet, or the sofa, or when I mowl at the door.  Worst is when I look at the screen door (I've bolted outside it is fun!!!!).  Sometimes it is followed by a squirt of water!  I'm smart though, I've found if I get out of range of the water squirt it can't get me :).

I'm officially a 'charachter' and my antics get me quite laughed at.  I've taught Latte some pouncing tricks from my days living on the street and he practices them on Kaze.  Kaze is a little witch, huh?  She won't let me near the Food Woman.  She's very possessive and sensitive BUT she's fun target practice.  She thinks there is a "safe zone" around the Woman....hahah NO.  I don't respect this word called "boundaries".  I play rough, and I play hard, but it is fun!  Hey, I'm the baby and I want to play play play!!

Chase taught me to get on top of the cabinets to hide from the hoomans to freak them out.  That's fun.  Latte likes to play tag with me, and I've even licked him once!  Kaze is learning to tolerate me as long as I stay away from "her" woman.

The Woman is sad and frustrated because I won't lick and nuzzle and love her like I do the Tall Man.  She says all of the animals end up loving him more even though she brought us all in, feeds us, and scoops our poop.  So last night I nursed on her fingers for her.  She seemed to like that. 

As a baby kitten I must have been taken from my mama-cat really young because I seriously full on nurse on fingers.  I create a suction with my front teeth on the finger pad of the human and I knead on his shoulder at the same time.  Oh, and PURR.  I'm a really loud purrer.  I'm a really loud talker too!  I "Mowl".  I chirp and coo and make loud noises all of the time.  They say I talk more than Kaze!!!! 

So we'll have to get some more pictures of me but I'm certainly loving my family!!

Be nice to your mom. We know how tough it is. Last semester our Mommy was teaching SEVEN classes and taking two grad classes. It's tough but she says she has to do it to make sure the good nummy food keeps on coming in.

Rufus, you sound like quite a character. We're very happy you're enjoying your new family so much.

Rufus, we all know ginger cats are smart. We just do what we have to, to get what we want.

Bubbles, Madness and Trouble said...

We are glad to hear that you are settling in well, Rufus. How does Chase feel about you loving on "his" Tall Man?

Junior and Orion said...

Good to hear from you Rufus! We are very glad you are settling in and loving your new home! It is even better that you are becoming furiends with mosts of the kitties in the house. Give Kaze some more time, we bet she comes around.

It is great that you love the Tall Man so much, but we are also glad you gave the woman some special attention.

We are greedy, not only do we want pictures, but we want a vidoe so we can hear you talk!

Mr. R.W. Emerson said...

Hi Rufus - fellow orange dude! I'm glad that you're doing well with your big family. Mommie hasn't let me blog in a long time so I didn't even know that you had been officially adopted. Did you know that your blog posts are undated?

Teri and the cats of Curlz and Swirlz said...

We are ways behinds in visiting, too but here we are, laffing and laffin at your post!

Sorry it's taken us a long time to back to visiting with you. We are glad to meet your acquaintance,Rufus.

We, too, have orange kitty visitor. He visits throughout the day and goes home at night. He's pretty friendly too.

We'll try to visit more often.

fivecats said...

Sorry we haven't visited as often as we should. Bad staff.

We are glad to meet your acquaintance, Rufus. When we read your story when you were the outdoor office cat, we had a feeling the office lady (your mom, the lap lady) was going to keep you. We're glad she did.

Sounds like you are making your little niche in the family. My sister Maggie is our number four and she's the biggest stinker of the bunch, too.

I heard Chase was ill. I hope he gets better soon.
