And I thought meezers were crazy....


1.  Yes she took pictures.  No she hasn't taken them off the camera yet.

2.  My teeth hurt and the Woman ran out of wet food so now I'm starving to death.  She tried to tempt me with crunchy food soaked in water.  Not buying it.  Latte however thought it was the best thing since the bag of Temptations he hunted down and ate the entire contents of (this was last week).

3.  Orange Meniss.  I'm not one to listen to meezers but Sammy & Miles are really smart and I have to hand it to them....Rufus IS an orange meniss.  I mean he's cool and stuff, we hang next to each other and he jumps really high on stuff and knocks things off which I used to do when I was younger.  However, this thing BOUNCES OFF THE WALLS.  I'm quite serious.  He starts with his trill of a meow.....BOLTS out from behind a couch, leaps and pushes off of a wall, meows again, and BOLTS up the stairs.  He's brain crazy psycho.  There is a short circuit or something in there.  The Awesome Man thought he was being attacked.

4.  Kaze has been the most curious about Rufus but still if she's startled by him she'll hiss.  She's the only one hissing though, he just ignores her.  Latte has started to play with him, they will play bat-bat paws and a little bit of tag.  He's in the house full time and everyone is coexisting really really well.  The Woman just wants to see us playing more and hoping to see snuggling soon.  Rufus really wants to play and wants us to be his friend.

5.  Cat nip.  We've never known a cat to go so nipped out as Rufus.  Druggie.

Orange Cat is staying & Chase looses teeth

Kaze Reports:

Rufus is staying in our house.  He's apparently the biggest teddy bear cat ever and really cute and blah blah blah.  I am very interested in him BUT he's big so that scares me.  We all get closer to each other and turn our backs and do lots of blinking but I still hiss if he scares me.  Last night I was snuggling with the Lap Lady under her scarf and Rufus jumped up to snuggle and didn't know I was there.  I flipped out and we both took off in different directions.  Today he's spending the morning in the house with me and Latte with no human supervision.....we'll see how this goes.  He spent an hour while the Lap Lady was taking Chase to the vet and it is really cold out on the front porch so she wanted him to stay inside.  Latte is terrified of him but is getting more used to having him around.  He really is Rufus the Dufus though he just does so many weird silly things that make us all laugh.

Chase is at the vet this morning having his teeth cleaned.  He hasn't had a dental done in 9 years (he didn't need one) and they just called the LL and he has to have 2 teeth pulled :(.  They are going to do x-rays to make sure the other teeths are OK but it makes everyone sad he has to loose some teeths.  I guess this really hit home that he is a senior kitty now.  He doesn't act like it at all, and even Latte & I are 5 years old- we aren't kittens anymore.  Rufus is now the baby at 1 1/2 years old.  Time really flies.

Where the Orange goes to the vet

I've been getting really comfy with my new front porch home!  I can sit right behind the people's heads (through a window) and coo-scream at them when I get lonely and want attention.  They're pretty big suckers....I'm a people cat since I just don't know I can trust those other creatures in the house yet.  The big one looks a lot like the local tom-cat and that long-skinny one?  What IS that exactly??

I was really good for the Office Lady to put me in the carrier.  We went out to this big moving machine and I was good but askeered.  I was shaking in fear!!  The OL pet me and told me it was OK and I love her so I settled down.  I vaguely remembered trips like this in the past but it has been a long time.

So we went inside and eventually went to a room where she took me out of the carrier.  I just wanted to curl up and didn't know what was going on.  The first thing they did was verfiy I am indeed a boy and I do not have boy-bits.  So I was definately someone's cat since they neutered me.  Then they took my temperature which was no biggie.  They kept telling me how very good and sweet I am. 

I made the vet lady's day because I ate treats from her hand.  I like treats.  I don't know what the big deal is eating it from a person's hand but apprently most cats don't at the vet.  I should have known it was a bribe because they put 2 shots in me and then she stole my blood!!  Can you believe she stole my blood????  And then she swabbed my ears.  NEXT (as if this wasn't enough) I got dewormer pills shoved down my throat.  At least they gave me a big bowl of wet food after that.  That was nommy.  Mmmmmmm

While we were waiting for results I decided I wanted to jump up on the scale/table.  I like high places- they make me feel safe.  The OL had to get a chair to get me down hehehe.  Next came an ear cleaning (I have a lot of yeast and bacteria in my ears, but no mites).  Then my blood results came back that I'm negative to everything (which apparently is a good thing?).  Then the OL suggested scanning me for a microchip (which I didn't have).  And finally......the worst part.........CLIPPY CLAWS.

I had put up with a lot really nicely.  There was no way they were taking my clawrs without a fight!  I screamed and yowled and faught back for this part.  It was over pretty quickly though. 

The OL dropped me back at home on my porch and went right to lawschool.  The Office Guy came home and let me into the house since I'm disease free.  I did not like that....there are 3 cats in there and they are EVIL and trying to KILL me.  When the OL came home she tried again but this time she (the smart one) just opened the door and let me come in on my own terms.  That lanky one with big ears......she's CRAZY.  Like BAT crazy.  She runs at me and purrs!  Like, just runs at me like she knows me???!!  She must have brain problems.  Luckily the OL has caught her from just terrifying the poo out of me. 

The big one seems pretty laid back, if I hiss at him he backs away.  The little one that is brown is terrified of me.  I don't know why?  The humans have been petting him to make him feel special.  We'll see where all of this goes.....

Front Porch Cat

It was raining and freezing cold this morning so when the Office Woman came out to meet me I was in my house curled up but very wet.  She picked me up and we went right inside where she had the Tall Man help get me in the carrier.  I started purring when I was put in the carrier!  Then the Office Lady waked me back to her house and put me on the Front Porch.  It smelled funny and stuff but I wasn't scared because I'm very brave.

She got me a litter box and foods and water (I was very hungry!).  Then she pet me a lot and I liked that but she said she had to get back to the office so she left me. 

We have a couple of people interested in being my mom but whoever wants me is going to have to be super duper special because I don't think these people want to part with me.  I have my vet check set for Thursday afternoon to get dewormed/deearmited/blood tests/etc.  I don't think I'm going to like that but oh well aparently I have to have it done if I ever want my own family since everyone who wants me already has kitties.

Office Cat Needs a full time mom

Hi everyone!  You remember me, right?  I'm Office Cat (I don't respond to my "name").  Office Lady is my favorite animal and I wait for her every morning to feed me and give me love.  She has been really sad this week because she says she loves me so much that she needs to find me a forever mom.  Someone that can take me inside and I can snuggle and knead and drool and nuzzle as much as I want to.  I don't know what this means because all I want to do is come in the office and be with her but she says this is for the best. 

So if anyone is looking for a golden-nuget-of-love please remember me!  I purr all of the time and I make little cooing noises when I meow.  I am really friendly and would get along with other animals, you would never know I'm a "stray".  The Office Lady thinks my family moved away without me because I'm neutered and I must be pretty young as that was my first winter outside and it was hard. Now that spring is here I'm hanging around the office full time.

Oh for statistics sake:  I am about a 1 or 2 years old, neutered, and about 9 lbs.  I have a pink nose (with black speckles- my lips are speckly too!) and pink paw pads which are apparently "ADORABLE".  I have white & black whiskers too!  I have golden eyes that match my orange fur.  I am in South Jersey, about 10 minutes from Philadelphia.

Meezer Meets Horse

 They tried to take me to the barn.....and I told them no.

 They wouldn't dare risk Chase's good will....

But Latte....oh poor little Latte.....

First they brought out the harness, then they brought out the carrier.  I was a little perturbed to be riding in the big metal machine but Meowmy was holding me and I sat in her lap and looked outside a lot.  It was OK.  It was a dark rainy night and I didn't know what was going on but I'm a good kitty and took it all in stride.  

Eventually the car stopped and Meowmy wrapped me in her coat and we went in the rain until we got to a big door.  Inside the door smelled familiar, like when Meowmy comes home from the barn.  We walked into the dark and turned some lights on and it was very weird but I was safe in Meowmy's coat.

Then I saw was my GIANT sister Snap.  She was very horselike and she snuffed my head.  I snuffed her back because I recognized her smell from Meowmy's riding clothes.  I was a brave meezer and I let her nuzzle me and she was really very nice.  She likes kitties but I had never seen such a big animal before!  I was askeered......VERY askeered.

 Meowmy made me ride her.  See how nice Snappy is being?  Even though I wanted to dig my clawrs into her back she listened to Meowmy to be a good horses (see her ears?) and she let me sit on her.  I appropriately gave laser meezer eyes.
 This is her snuffing me and me snuffing her.  Her nostril is the size of my head!!!!!!  Thankfully Meowmy kept me safe in her coat.  So safe that when Snap shook her head..........I peed all over Meowmy.  I couldn't help it!  That big head scared me and while I was being really big and tough, I had to pee really bad.  Meowmy did not get mad at me at all (even though I really let it out....she was soaking wet).  We said goodbye to Snappy and I got to ride in the carrier on the way home.
After my very exciting journey Meowmy said I could blog about it so I'm sitting her in her lap and purring happily.  I was an askeery trip but certainly one none of us will ever forget.  Meowmy was so happy her babies knew each other and aside from the peeing incident, all went really well.  I'm still her big brave meezer man.
