Put up in the big bedroom

The maintenance man came to fix the hot water heater. Daddy put brother and I in the same bathroom. So naturally we be getting the fight. Daddy cracked the bathroom door and I escaped. I kept trying to run from him and went into the big bedroom. 🛏

That’s when it hit me,

Happy Gotcha Day, Ms. Heather


The day seems fresh, like new poured litter.

I remember the nice man scooping me up from my my brother and sister. He mumbled something, and placed me inside of a tan box. I had a feeling that I would never see my sister or brother cats again.

The nice man placed me inside of a big thing with wheels. I heard music. It seemed we were in there for days.

Then the rocking stopped altogether. The nice man picked up the box, and spoke soft to me. And then I saw her.

She was standing, smiling. And she smelled like happiness. She reached in the box, and I was afraid. After all, hoomans hadn’t been all too nice to me so far. Her hooman paws scooped me up and held me against her. I don’t know how I knew, but I could tell she was a mommy.

She placed me in her car wheeled thing. The rocking didn’t take long. She got out of the wheeled thing, and then came back.

The wheeled thing took us back to her den, and she carried me inside. I liked her smell.

She placed something around my neck, and I heard a jingle-jingle. Every time I moved, I heard it! Then she scooped me up, and closed her eyes speaking very softly. Wait.. she was.. praying?? She was talking to ABBA. Even though I was just a little one, I knew about ABBA. HE created all things, like me. And that meant.. ABBA had created her.

The girl hooman placed food and water in bowls, and sat watching me. I ate a bit, and went back over to her. She scooped me up again, and that was when she said it for the first time: “Joel The Brave”. I would come to learn that that was what my hooman name is. And I would learn hers, Ms. Heather.

Night time came, and she carried me into a different room. There were soft pieces and Ms Heather laid down. She had no litter mates, and now that I didn’t either .. I knew then. I had to take care of her. She was my hooman. I nestled against her, though she didn’t have  fur other than the long fur on top.

That was the day I got Ms. Heather.

She and I, we have been through a lot together. I have watched her cry. I have watched her bring into our den a boy hooman, who I now call my Dadda: Mr. Steve. We took lots of rides in wheeled things, and then a big wheeled thing brought me to my new den, that I share with Ms Heather, Mr. Steve, and my new sissy cat, Lilly Bug.

I thank ABBA for bringing her to me.

Happy Gotcha Day, Ms. Heather.

 The Barking Cat 🐈

My name is Lilly Bug and I am a Barking Cat. When I want my hoomans attention, I just let out a bark. He will say excuse me? I will go meow. Hey it works! But, did you know that cats can imitate sounds. I guess what is why I am good at making a barking noise.

Calico Cats


Calico cats a cat with a bunch of different colors on their fur. But there is so much more to a calico cat.

Calico Cats

As you can tell, I am a Calico Cat. I wanted to share some information about what a calico cat is in the time I have to sneak on my hoomans laptop. I am very clever, I take the stuff off the top of it, open it up and put the stuff back on top, in the same spot my hooman had it. But, it is temping to eat some of the beef jerky that is on top.

I guess since my hooman is asleep, it is a bit easier, since we cats are nocturnal. That means we like to sleep during the day and be out at night. However, I just sleep when ever I want … day or night.

According to WikiPediaCalico cats are domestic cats with a spotted or particolored coat that is predominantly white, with patches of two other colors.

But, look at me, I don’t have much white, nor does Squeaker, this stray can I see my hooman feed and talk to a lot outside. Yes, hooman, I hear you talking to that cat and giving it a name! Anyways, back to the white, I have it on my belly, neck, paws and even a spot on my nose. I think I mentioned this, but my vet says that is a good identify mark on me. Most cats and even dogs usually have unique markings in their coat of fur.

Both me and Squeaker have mostly black markings. I do have a little bit of white, but Squeaker doesn’t have much of any white, if at all.

However, Calico Cat is not a breed of cat. It actually just refers to our multiple color patterned fur. So all of these types of breeds can be a calico …

  • Manx
  • American Shorthair
  • British Shorthair
  • Persian
  • Japanese Bobtail
  • Exotic Shorthair
  • Siberian
  • Turkish Van
  • Turkish Angora
  • Norwegian Forest

Did you know Calico Cats are most always female? That is because of the X chromosome.

Calico Cats are usually sweet, loving and loyal cats too. We can also be independent cats too.

Did you also know Maryland named the Calico Cat it’s official State Cat in October of 2001? That is because we share the colors of the Maryland State Bird … Baltimore Oriole. Plus, we share the colors of Marylands State Insect the Baltimore Checkerspot butterfly too. I guess, Maryland wanted to keep the color scheme there. What do you think?

Calico Cats were even mentioned in an older Children’s Poem called “The Duel.” This poem featured a gingham pup and a calico cat. This poem was written by Eugene Fields. See the first part of that poem below.

The gingham dog and the calico cat
Side by side on the table sat;
‘T was half-past twelve, and (what do you think!)
Nor one nor t’ other had slept a wink!
      The old Dutch clock and the Chinese plate
      Appeared to know as sure as fate
There was going to be a terrible spat.
            (I was n’t there; I simply state
What was told to me by the Chinese plate!)

The gingham dog went “Bow-wow-wow!”
And the calico cat replied “Mee-ow!”

Even an artist liked painting us, 18th century French painter Jean-Baptiste-Simeon Chardin.

I guess sitting behind my hooman has helped me learn how to blog. I best get off before I wake up my hooman.

I don’t watch movies, but an Australia movie theater has a calico cat, Marzipan, who would sit in peoples lap and greet movie goers. Marzipan must have liked movies, I don’t get into watching TV or movies, etc. Sadly Marzipan did pass away. I am sure that made movie goers sad. I am sure Marzipan cheered up a lot of people.

I will close on this note, some people will having a calico cat is almost like having three cats in one. I don’t know what that means if, that is a good thing or a bad thing.
