Blame that Sweet Spice Girl..

Her pet blogs have prompted me to write my very own saga of being the Crazy Cat Lady in my neighborhood.

I'm a sucker for a kitten. It doesn't matter how old the kitten might be.. could be at deaths door and if it needs me, I'll take it home. (Good thing that G has me on a limit at the moment.. this apartment ain't big enough for my habits)

Two years ago, I went to Petsmart.. on a saturday.. HUGE mistake. They were having an adoptathon. Yup, you guessed it. I was playing with the kitties.

This one big fluffy ball of hair .. was hidden in the very back of her cage. She was all big fearful eyes and puffed up like she was going to be in a fight. So naturally, this is the cat that comes out and rubs her face against my finger through the cage bars. She looks like a cross between a Main Coon and a Bengal. She has classy Bengal markings and we don't call her Fluffus Maximus for no reason. I swear that cat now weighs 15 lbs. Two years later, she's still a bit skittish. I'd like to know her history. I have a feeling she was either feral or abused. Possibly both. She is most definitely my cat though. She has several guises. Oonagh (which is her actual name) is when she is all curled up in the middle of something I'm trying to work on. Fluffeh.. is when she is cuddly and lovey... and Fluffus Maximus when she lands on you from her window perch. OUCH.

Then.. I was looking for a friend for Oonagh, in hopes to bring her out of her shell (that worked btw. . she now doesn't hide in the bedroom at all times) and I saw this ad on Craigslist with the most adorable siamese looking kitty. I called and got permission to come see her. Well, when I got there, the place was filthy, there were probably fifteen cats and kittens all over the place and all of them were crawling with fleas... so.. yeah, you guessed it.. I ended up taking home the door stops. Aoife (eefah) and Aine (anyah).

Anie is the 'bathroom cat', she's stand offish everywhere but in the bathroom. Gawd forbid you should try to go by yourself. She'll paw at the door til you let her in. Then she jumps up on the side of the tub and gets between the fabric and vinyl shower curtains and rubs all over you.. finally ending up purring on your lap. It's so much fun trying to do your business with a cat on your lap. She's a gorgeous girl though.. Looks like an apple head siamese.. She's the only one we allowed to have kittens. Everyone wanted a kitten that looked like Aine.. well.. that didn't happen.. they came out all sorts of colors but not one blue eyed princess like the momma.

Aoife is G's cat.. no two ways about it. She's a retard too.. not in the stupid way but in the goofy kitty way. We have a climbing tower in the living room and she gets at the top and waits for someone to walk by.. then she kills you. At night she likes to curl up on G's pillow, lying on his hand. She's not happy unless his hand is under her.

And then last, but certainly not quietest, is Echo. Echo is Aine's baby. She's pure gray with big 'lamp eyes'. That kid is NOISY! She is a talker.. she tells you when she's hungry, she tells you when she's going to eat, she tells you when she's lonely, she tells you it's time to pet her, she tells you she's.. whatever she's doing she's talking about it.

Now this all seems kinda mellow and lovable right?

Somehow, my cats did not get the memo that says that cats and ninjas are quiet. Some mornings it sounds like a herd of buffalo running around the house, bouncing off walls... up on the bed over to the window perch back to the bed off the foot of the bed up on the tower, to the back of the couch, to the other couch, behind the tv and zip into the kitchen. Not once.. but like the Indy 500! I gotta say I get to laughing so hard at them sometimes I almost cry.

I particularly like it when the little one gets all astraddle the big water bowl and antagonizes the dogs.. it's usually not too long before kitty goes swimming. She's not fond of the water so you'd think she'd learn to stay off it? Nope, she's a retard.

Cooper, our male dog, is afraid of the kittehs.. big tuff mushmeller. They all wanna pile up with him and sleep.. he's ok til they get too close then he has to slink away and hide behind me.. wherever I may be.

I just love my critters. No wonder I don't spend much time watchin TV.. I'm always watching the animal planet in my own home.

Love it...that is why I never take my animal donations directly to the shelter..I have to send them with a 3rd party or there would be no kitties left for adoption PERIOD!! I have 5 now...all in various stages of nerosis...but I love em all!!!

Awww shucks!!!! I got Skwirl to blog about her kitties.


And then last, but certainly not quietest, is Echo. Echo is Aine's baby. She's pure gray with big 'lamp eyes'. That kid is NOISY! She is a talker.. she tells you when she's hungry, she tells you when she's going to eat, she tells you when she's lonely, she tells you it's time to pet her, she tells you she's.. whatever she's doing she's talking about it.

My black kitty, Little One, is like that...talk, talk, talk, even while purring she talks. She's got the slant eyes like a Siamese..wonder if maybe she has that in her. Her eyes are bright green.

Somehow, my cats did not get the memo that says that cats and ninjas are quiet.

Sorry....I told Little One she was supposed to send that memo your way. btw....except for her talking, she's "quiet". She's more of a cuddle puss than a dive bomber. Apache was the dive bomber in his younger days.

And for living in a house with 5 dogs...these cats do pretty good. Apache has taught all 5 dogs that when he's napping on his foot stool...putting that tender nose in his reach is guaranteed to hurt. And Little One, she's so cute when the dogs sniff at her and she arches up her back to look tough. And then she runs.

Yep....they can be more entertaining than anything on tv.

They can be funny when they talk.... I used to have a stray that came around all the time... the first time he showed up, he sat outside my bathroom window while I was in the shower just talking away! I opened the window when I got out of the shower and he just chattered and talked away! So I named him Chatterbox... he hung around here for years.
My Little M talks alot too... she coos like a bird sometimes and sometimes, it gets on my last nerve because it's usually when I'm stubbling out of the bed and trying to wake the fuck up! She thinks she's going to starve to death.... you should see her tho.... she's not starving for sure!!

Cute blog skwirl!! It made me go ...awwwwwwwwwwwwww

Well you know how I feel about cats...I'd take in every cat that needed a home if I could. My Lucy (big fat orange cat) is the talker. She comes up to me and looks up at me and when I look at her she meows and I meow back....I can mimic her really good anymore. And this goes on until I'm the one who shuts up cause she won't....lol.

But it's the other one that squawls at my bedroom door every morning like she's starving to death. Now ya know why I REALLY run the fan....so I can't hear her!

Good blog....kudo kiddo.

I hear ya Skwirl. None of my previous cats every got the "quiet as a ninja" memo either...because I was awaken quite often when one of them would bounce on top of me.

That's when you know you're really a cat lover. Because instead of helping them find another home...you actually laugh about it...and think they're so darn cute.

I'm so whipped...and it's looks like you're whipped too!

Here's a green cookie for such a fun story.
