Formerly Feral now Foster Friday!
Guest Blogger: ANNIE, Mini House Panther
We all knew it was only a matter of days before I seized the blog. YAY ME!
And lookey here...I am Kat's Cat of the Day today! Foster Friday. It's ME.
Thanks Kat! (and thanks to the nice lady who called me Mini House Panther!)
So much good news!
First: the Dawg has finally stopped fixating on me and stalking my every move.
She is a pain in the a$$.
Second: Mosaic Lady and the Prez of TAAG talked today and because ML is hopelessly attached to me (who didn't see that coming, huh?) she can't bear to take me to Pet Smart adoption days on Saturday. She can't drop me off and then have me adopted by STRANGERS, nor can she inconspicuously hover for 5 hours, giving every possible adopter the evil mosaic eye of "you are not worthy" scrutiny. So it was decided that I will continue to live here and explore purrfect forever home finding in "alternative ways". (That's delusional human speak for buying time. Or, delaying the inevitable.)
Really -- ML would like to find me the purrfect forever home. But she wants to control it. I'm sorry..."remain involved".
Plus, she's hoping a few more weeks of terrorizing her cats will get it all out of my system and I will play nice with others in my next home. HA HA HA HA.
Seriously -- here I am sharing Willie's couch with him. (Bianca is living under her couch again. Bianca HATES me. HA HA HA HA.) Last night ML woke up to find me AND Willie sleeping at the foot of her bed. Unfortunately, her disbelief was so strong that she had to turn on the light to see it. We both dispersed, and when Willie tried to resume our amicable repose, I spat and hissed at him, chasing him out of MY bedroom. ML had to carry Willie back in and place him on the bed, reminding him that he belongs here too.
HA HA HA HA.
Here is a very blurry photo PROVING that I am making progress with Sadie. We are sharing HER table!
But that was yesterday. Today I spent the whole afternoon thunderstorm stalking her. See that corner next to the printer? I had her backed into it until ML rescued her. YAY ME.
And then I spent some quality time in the mosaic studio helping Mosaic Lady make a new wine carafe. Hey! If you like gardens and bunnies, pinks and greens... you need to see her latest one HERE.
See Faz snoopervising from a safe distance? Even he and I get along now!
From a safe distance.
Please don't let my honest confessions scare you away from adopting me!
I am confident and affectionate around all humans and Leah the Dawg; I eat ANYTHING and I eat a LOT; I am impeccably groomed and fastidious in my litter box habits; I come when called (and even when not called); I have the BEST reflexes and eye-paw coordination ML has ever seen in a four-legged! She calls me Air Annie when we play catch.
Other kitties are just hard for me right now. I don't trust them yet. I spent my entire life (all 9 months of it) outside around other cats where we only got fed once a day and I had to fight for every bite. And then I had babies when I was still a baby myself! It's a wonder I weighed even 5.5 pounds. Now that I am learning to share territory, and can eat good food at any time of day or night, I am learning how to relax and trust.
And I am finally growing into my paws!
I am going to be a gorgeous and sleek Mini House Panther!
(And a well-adjusted one. Even if it's the last thing Mosaic Lady does.
And it may be.)
