I am Sophee; my registered name is Ms. Sophista-Kat. I am a calico, straight-eared Scottish Fold born in January 2012. I have the same father as Inkee-Bear and the same mother as Gracee. I might be the smallest but I have the loudest purr…I weigh less than 7 pounds. I love to play and let all of the other cats groom me. View Sophee's Posts.
They call us the 'Sibling Bookends'-- or the 'Bookend Siblings.' We frequently 'end' up on our catwalk together. From up here, we have choices. We can either watch our hooman, in this case our hooman turned photographer inside our house & below us or the birds, bees & trees outside our house through the window behind us. Which would you choose?
You should see the action around this house at Christmas time! It can be exhausting, if you get my drift. Big boxes with paper & stuff in 'em. Meowmuh takes stuff out, puts the stuff here & there. Me? I investigate the boxes, watch blinking lights, chase ornaments, pounce on garlands, listen to strange sounds -- Meowmuh says it's music, you know, Christmas carols.
We let him stay cause he passed the sniff test. What we didn't know is that he makes noise. Meowmuh says it's music --Christmas carols. Can you believe that?
A Snowman? In California? Gotta' investigate this! We, as dedicated members of the "Sniff Patrol," actively investigate any anomaly or mysterious thing that enters our house. We certainly don't need investigation training cause sniffing is what we do! It's a skill we're born with, a real talent &, we'll thoroughly investigate this one, furr shure!
It's raining, it's pouring & Inkee-Bear is snoring. I'm not asleep, not me. Besides, it never rains anymore. So this is exciting! I don't want to miss a drop. Let the others sleep all they want. This is my time, my 'me-time' if you know what I mean. My siblings are sooo quiet. That is sooo what I want. Besides, I have Meowmuh all to myself.
Am I actin' & lookin' sweet & innocent enough? Meowmuh still hasn't noticed the crooked picture. You know, we have dozens of earthquakes in Los Angeles. None recently? None today? Well, she won't know. She's busy & tired. I'm just gonna' kick-it up here. I'm on the top step of the cat tree now. My ears almost brush the ceiling. Well, not really. I'm not a liar.
Gotta' admit. I'm gettin' just a wee bit nervous. There must be a way out of this. Maybe if I jump up there -- you know, on the valance for the vertical blinds. I haven't been up there before. Would it hold me? Hmm.
OK. I went one step higher. I'll get it, don't get your whiskers frazzled. I can do this. I'm balanced, I'm reaching, reaching---oh, oh. I can't quite get it. Oh, no. The stupid picture moved! Now it's all crooked! Meowmuh won't notice. She's busy & tired. Besides, I know what to do. Done it before, can do it again. I'll act nonchalant. I'll be my usual sweet & innocent self.
Do you see what I see from our new cat tree? Look at the corner of that picture. It's Meowmuh's new cat necklace! How can I get it? Maybe if I go up one more step. It would be so fun to bat around. The other cats would love it too. They're always saying: "Sophee, you find such fun things." It's easy-peasy--just check the counters!
I've got this pum-kin goin' now, fur shure. While I'm playin' -- Meowmuh wants to warn all you 2- & 4-legged critters out there -- watch us so we don't eat somethin' that'll make us sick cause, I don't know about you, but I don't want to be rushed to any 4-legged critters' emergency hospital. So, be sure & READ the "Safety Tips for Thanks-What?" Article.
