I am Spirit, the youngest, strongest, most intense and active of all the cats in my family. I am a silver Egyptian Mau with black spots weighing in at just less than 13 pounds. I was born in November 2012 in Wichita, Kansas; I flew from there to my forever home in Los Angeles. Life is so exciting, isn’t it? I love meeting people, learning new things and having my tummy tickled. I run all the time….up and down the stairs, through the house and on my new cat wheel. View Spirit's Posts.
SPIRIT: What's a pilgrim? INKEE: a traveler in foreign lands. SPIRIT: I was born in Kansas so I'm a pilgrim. INKEE: Kansas is a state, not a foreign country. SPIRIT: I'm an Egyptian Mau--I came from Egypt--a foreign country. INKEE: Sigh. I'm a Scottish Fold so I must be from Scotland.
Vet-r-in's Day? What's a vet-r-in anyway? Do they give shots? Clip nails? No? Good. So, a veteran was a hooman that fought for Meowica. Are dogs vet-r-ins? What about cats? Are there any cat veterans? They can fly, stalk, hunt & kill things--well, little things. It makes me purr when I think of all you vet-r-ins. Thank you for your sacrifice & service & for keeping Meowica safe!
OMG! Did ya' feel that? That was close. If you ask me, it sounds like war out there. The neighbors did that? It shook our house. They've been at it every night for 3 weeks. They're gonna' do it tomorrow too? Totally not fair. Can't they find somethin' better to do? Maybe we need to call the Paw-lease. Hope your 4th is nothin' short of purr-fect which would clearly be better'n ours. Yikes.
Inkee-Bear & I are hard-core patriotic Americats, know what I mean? Just wanna' wish all you two-legged and four-legged patriots out there a safe and Happy Fourth of July. Meowmuh has the TV on so the noises aren't too bad & she sprayed Feliway to calm us. Actually, I'm goin' to take a little nap, you know, a cat nap.
If you can't see this video, click on the above Title. We're just finishing up our exploring. Gracee found the toys. "Gracee, hurry up before Meowmuh catches us. Get those cat toys outta' there so we can play with 'em." Can you smell that catnip? Makes me more wild & crazy than usual, if you know what I mean. "Hurry, Gracee! Meowmuh's coming downstairs!!"
Gracee found our cat toys!! Meowmuh put them in a zippered pocket. Gracee's gonna' dig 'em out. Gracee, are there enough down there for all of us? Hurry up, Gracee, hurry up!
Sometimes you have to get "into" somethin' to figure out what's goin' on. Somethin' in here smells like catnip. Gracee thinks there are cat toys in here. Know what? I think she's right, for once. Bet she'll sniff & find the toys that Meowmuh brought home for us.
SPIRIT: Do you hear that? TATATA-ta -- It's a merry-ah-? INKEE: Mariachi band. SPIRIT: I knew that. Wanna' dance? INKEE: No, but you can. While you're at it, why don't you mind your manners & wish everyone a Happy Cinco de Mayo? SPIRIT: A what? OK. Happy Cinco de Meowo! INKEE: Close enough. Sigh.
Did U know that April 17 was National Haiku Poetry Day? So, while we were tryin' to bird-watch and after a lot of hissing & swatting, we wrote our own Haiku poem:
Springs' renewal brings
Nest building in eaves despite
Cats' wanton warnings.
Spirit: What did ya' say? Hippity-hop-hop down the bunny trail? Where's that? Inkee-Bear: Who cares? Spirit: Take a nap, Inkee-Bear. I'm investigatin' somethin' here. Dude-Big-Pink-Ears here says he's gonna' hop somewhere. Is it outside? Can I come? I wanna' see the bunny trail. Don't you, Inkee-Bear? Inkee-Bear: You go, I'll nap.
