Second day - part 2

I held onto momma with all my might. I started purring real hard. Momma held me and talked to me telling me that everything was alright. There was nothing or noone to hurt me. She saw that I had at least used the catbox during the night, but she knew that I was hungry. Daddy quickly put some moist food in a bowl and brought it over to us. The other cats sat at her feet while I ate my fill. I had a drink of water and started to clean my face. Momma set me down on the chaise lounge where we were sitting. Lucinda jumped up and sat next to me. I was happy to have her there. Moe kept his distance. It's a good thing, or I would have swatted him!

"Little sister", said Lucinda as she nuzzled me, "I'm glad to have you out with me. There are many things you need to know about your new home."

Moe looked up at me with a grin. "Yeah, like don't bite any toes that are under the covers. Lucinda learned the hard way, when she got tossed off the bed!"

Lucinda slowly blinked her eyes at him. "Yes, that was a lesson learned by me and momma. She doesn't wiggle her toes and I don't pounce. I have an idea. Let's take a nap on the big bed and start fresh tomorrow. Moe and I have lots to show you."

My second day

Yay, it's Friday! We get momma home for a few days. She seems to needs lots of purrs lately. We all have been missing the sun, so we have been trying to cheer her up.

Back to my story:

6:00 am Saturday May 2, 2003

I finally fell asleep. I awoke to the smell of coffee brewing and bacon cooking. Lucinda and Moe wee in the kitchen asking for breakfast. I was hungry myself, but I stayed under the couch. Momma got down on the floor and asked me how I was doing. I sniffed her fingers and she patted me unde rmy chin. She said she had to go to work, and would see me later. She and daddy left, and the house was quiet.

Daddy came back, drank his coffee, did the dishes, and watched tv. After a while, he came over and asked me when I was coming out. He even tried to lift up on end of the couch, but I moved to the other end. He did this a couple of times, and finally gave up. "Your momma will know how to get you out," he said. I could hear the other cats laughing. Moe could hardly contain himself, "Ha, ha, ha. Lucinda, we had better do something to distract daddy." "I know what he likes," giggled Lucinda. "I will jump up and purr in his ear."

Daddy left again and brought momma back home. He had told her about his attempts to get me to come out. She told daddy to lift up the couch again. This time she grabbed me before I could run.

To be continued.

Hello everyone!

Thank you for reading along as I revisit my first days in my new home.

Back to the story:

"Leave me alone, " I yelled. "I'm staying here!" I crawled back under the couch as far as I could go. My eyes shot lasers at the offender. Lucinda sighed and said, "Now look what you've done. I know you are excited to see Scandalous, but I told you to wait."

The bigger cat nervously licked his paws. "I'm sorry, I thought she would remember me."

"It's okay, Moe. She just needs time and we need to be patient. This here first night away from all she has known. We will let Momma work her magic to get her out."

Moe looked hopeful, "You're right, Lucinda. I will leave her alone. She knows you better, anyway."

Lucinda started walking towards the bedroom and turned to say, "Remember this. All the males she has known were stud cats and not very friendly. Once she gets to know you better, she will be your best friend." She headbutted under his chin. "Come on, Moe. Let's go to sleep. Momma has to get up in a few hours."

To be continued.


Saturday, May 2nd, 2003 - 2:00 AM

I shook my head and thought I was dreaming. "Little sister, is that you?" said the voice. "I never thought I would see you again. Welcome to your new home!"

I crawled halfway out from under the couch. "Zoom-Zoom," I softly said. "I am so happy to see you. I have missed you."

The dark brown cat licked my ears and said, "My new name is Lucinda. I like it and usually answer to it, unless I am playing with my mousie." She went on to say, "you will love it here. The humans are very caring and provide everying you need. You can sleep on the bed with us. Do you want to go in now?"

While I was thinking about abandoning my safe spot, the shadow of a larger cat suddenly appeared. I panicked and dove back under the couch.

Part 4 tomorrow.


Good morning kitties and kitty folk!

It's a beautiful day here. The sun is shining and I know that I will be sitting in the window today!

Now, lets get back to my story.

I forgot to mention that I was taken to my my new home on a Friday. This is very important to the story.

"Where are we going?" I meowed as we drove away from my birth home. My new momma reassured me that I was going to a home full of love, lots of good food, sunny windows, and two cats who wanted me to be there. I stayed quiet for the rest of the trip. My new humans spoke to each other about how luck they were to have me. I liked hearing their voices and relaxed a little.

Soon, we stopped moving and I was carried in my PTU up many stairs. The door was opened and we entered my new home. The familiar smells got stronger. Momma opened the PTU door and the other cats pushed their way in to get a good look and sniff! They scared me, so I hissed at them and rushed past them to find a place to hide. I squeezed myself under the couch and hissed again. Momma talked calmly to everyone. She knew that it would take time for us to get used to each other. Since I wouldn't come out, food, water, and a litter box were put out where I could find them. The other cats were taken away so I could come out and explore if I wanted to. Soon, the lights were turned out and I thought everyone went to sleep.

I thought about my kitty momma and my grandpa. They both told me my sister had gone to a forever home with one of the boycats. I had been busy with my kittens at the time, so I never got to say good-bye. As I started to doze off, I heard a whisper in my ear!

More tomorrow!


May 1st, 2003

There I was, minding my own business. Living with the other cats in the cattery. My kittens were grown and gone. I was recovering from my ladycat surgery. I was missing my sweet sister, Absolutely Delicious. I heard one of the ladies that raised me talking on the phone about "adoptable girl cats." In the evening, some very nice people came to visit. They had two other cats and wanted a third to round out the group. I guess that the boycat was too much cat the the ladycat. Anyway, they were introduced to me and I noticed a familiar smell, but I couldn't put a paw on it. They were nice and gave nice pats and scritches. I purred and rubbed and let them know I liked them. Papers were signed and I said good-bye to my birthplace. They put me into a PTU and got into the box with wheels and traveled to my new home.

Tomorrow, I will tell you the next part of my story, especially about the familiar smells!

Hi, it's Carmela here!

Grrrrrrrrrr. My momma is a bad momma and I am gonna have Cosmo bite her toes tonight! She forgot that my gotcha day was today, not tomorrow. It's late and all, but she said she would make tomorrow a special day. I heard tuna and a massage are part of the plan.

Tomorrow, I will tell you my story about how I came to live with momma, daddy, Moe, and my angel sister Lucinda.

Sleep tight and Meow for now!


Same cats - new blog!
