I Love Milk... Mao Mao Mao

Every time the magic food box door opens, I'm there!

May I have some milk, please?

It's not a lot but that's okay.

Mao, mao, mao! Quick Mom! Gimme, gimme, gimme!



Such a fascinating machine. Does this paper dispenser dispense milk too? And salmon treats? Maybe if I just make a wish....

Bright Spot

Sometimes my parents have a bad day. When they see me, I cheer them up. They tell me "Prints, you are the bright spot in our lives." Mao, mao, mao. I'm glad I make them happy.

I Surrender!!!!

Actually, I take that back. I am irresistible so it's my parents who I've TRAINED to surrender to me!

The Visit

I didn't have the greatest of days a week ago Saturday for two reasons.

1. I was put in a C R A T E, then set atop the dining room table.

2. While I was in said C R A T E, lo-and-behold, a big white fluffy dog appeared right there in my dining room. This was THE Casper D Dog that I had been hearing about all week. My parents said he was gonna visit on Saturday and I can attest that he did visit.

My parents were surprised I made a low growl and not a hiss. Which is better? A growl or a hiss? Other than the growl, for the most part, I was pretty silent.

One of the first sentences out of Casper's Mum was how I was BIGGER than she expected. Is that a compliment?

When I was sent back upstairs to my main room, my parents were pleased that I seemed content and undisturbed at knowing a dog was downstairs. I didn't hold any grudges because I am a good cat, however I'm still gonna send my parents to the library to get a Training 101 book on Cat Behavior so they can understand me better. They keep telling me that I'm gonna have to get used to white fluffy dogs sooner or later, but they assured me they love me and I have a permanent home with them.

Because it was Valentine's Day, even though I am a cat and Casper is a dog, I presented Casper with a bag of sweet potato fry doggie treats. I have heard Casper is a sweet potato addict.

Casper's got that Elvis grin going on for him.

Casper sure is fluffy these days!

And Casper gave us a beautiful tapestry rolling bag with lots of cats on it. It can be used for shopping or for traveling.

See how small it can fold up and put into a suitcase? When my parents go on travel, all the cat souvenirs for me can go into it for the return trip home!

My parents love their new cat carrying bag! I am starting to think my parents are becoming CAT PEOPLE! That goes to show how well of a trainer I am.

Almost Famous

I just found out that the shelter where I adopted my parents from wants to interview me for their newsletter on "happy stories." I am so excited! I am almost famous! Hopefully I am a good interviewee so they choose my story for the newsletter. Cross your paws! Brian, I know you know how exciting this is for me. "Adopt Cats! We deserve it!"

Soul Mates

I am blessed to have found my soul mate. My Dad is my soul mate. I love him to pieces. Every chance I get, I try to sit on his lap. I've said it before and I'll say it again: My Dad is my favorite person!

P.S. Remember the camera adds on 10 pounds. I have actually lost weight since adopting my family.

My Barkday and Welcome Tegan!

Yappy Barkday to Me! Barkday? Yes, BARKday! I did not come with a birth certificate, so my parents gave me Angel Hana the Dog's Barkday. My barkday was February 5th, last Friday, and they said I turned 6 years old. Mom and Dad didn't celebrate with me on the actual date, but they did buy me some CatSip the next day and I got to partake in that. YUM!


For my Barkday, my good friends Tegan the Eskie and Gromit T. Cat sent me a Barkday card! I don't remember, but I think this was my very first Barkday card in all of my 6 years, so it's extra special to me. THANK YOU, TEGAN and GROMIT!

Such a cute little doggie on the card.

Look, Tegan and Gromit even wrote a message. They have great penmanship despite not having opposable thumbs.

This leads to a formal introduction of Tegan and her brand new dog blog! Check it out! This is Tegan. She looks very fashionable in her ribbon necklace!

Tegan had a tough start in life. Her first set of parents abused her by keeping her chained to the fence. They didn't keep tabs on the situation so Tegan became pregnant, then she was abandoned at a kill shelter! Fortunately Heart Bandits, a rescue for American Eskimos, came along and took Tegan under their wing. Tegan gave birth to 6 puppies when she herself was still a puppy. Despite being abused, she took great care of all her puppies. What a great Mom Tegan was. Today Tegan has been adopted into a loving family and has a brother named Gromit T. Cat.

Please give Tegan a big welcome at her new blog! Her blog is very fancy!

Thanks, Tegan and Gromit, for the Barkday card!

Enjoying My Walkies

These walkies aren't so bad after all. I am navigating the backyard with more enthusiasm and going longer distances.

I still crouch sometimes, after all, a bird could come swoop me up, like how a bird swooped an eskie (Kevin) up in the movie "The Proposal."

I just keep my eyes wide open.

See, I walked all the way over to the fence and gate. What's that on the ground in the corner? Is that a MOUSE TRAP?

I don't have to hide under my parents' wings anymore. I'm also able to be in the middle of the yard and not up against a wall.

Last time we went on a backyard walk, I walked over to the patio when the walk was over, and then stood in the doorway of the patio door. I couldn't decide if I wanted in or out!

For Goodness Sakes, Get Me a Decent Leash!

Mom, if you're gonna take a picture of me on a backyard walkie, for goodness sakes, get me a decent leash! This is SOOO embarrassing! I don't care if this is Hana's puppy leash. I need a brand new leash of my own, one that isn't coming undone.


But on to more important matters! Thank you for all your votes for Eskie Rescuers United! You helped to bump ERU from 3rd place to 2nd place! You cats and dogs are amazing! The power of the PAW!
