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.
Wow! This day before Valentine’s Day has been exhausting! Teddy bears, hearts, bah-loons, ribbons—I’m plum wore out if you see what I’m sayin’. I need to get some serious sleep time in so I’ll be all handsome for tomorrow — Valentine’s Day. If the neighbor’s cats don’t come over, I’m gonna’ call Auntie Rika’s cats — Lucy & Mikey. They’ll be my Valentines furr shure! Have a fun day.
I’ve been waiting to ask the neighbor’s cat to be my Valentine. But she never showed. My hooman says it’s because it’s been raining — cats don’t like rain. I wouldn’t know. Me? I’m an indoor cat — except when my hooman takes me out in the stroller. Well, I can at least wish YOU — Happy Valentine’s Day!
Spirit: How much time do we have to find a Valentine? A few more days? Only a few more days!? Then you need to take us outside in our stroller otherwise we'll be Valentineless. Inkee-Bear: Spirit, calm down. Sophee could be your Valentine but she does get mad when you chase her & catch her. You need to slow down. Spirit: Slow down?
Spirit: I don't wanna' panic or nothin' -- but what if they don't come before Valentine's Day? Inkee-Bear: Then you can ask someone in our house to be your Valentine. Spirit: Huh? You mean like Gracee? She stilll hisses at me. Inkee-Bear: No, not Gracee. She's a hissing machine. Remember when the raccoons came to the back door?
Spirit: Remember the neighbors' cats that come through our back yard? Inkee-Bear: Yes.The beige ones with the brown faces. Spirit: Yes, those are the ones!
Spirit: What's Valentine's Day? Inkee-Bear: It's a day to show that you like -- Spirit: How do I know that? Inkee-Bear: Sigh.
It's been a long day. Sigh. Found my fav bag -- sniffed it -- rolled 'n groomed on it -- now it's time to say good night. Bless my sibs, my hooman & you; love all of them including you. Promise you'll sleep tight all night &, whatever you do, don't let the bed bugs bite.
Dunno' what you do when you're happy but I roll 'n roll 'n groom 'n roll. My hooman says: "Spirit's happy -- he's rollin'. It's true! Why am I so happy? It's cause I found my fav bag, that's why. My hooman takes it to her classes. I love givin' it the sniff-all-over test as soon as she brings it home -- it has the most intriguing scents. Love this bag!
Found it! And it was just lyin' here on the floor all by itself! This is my fav bag -- my Black Cat bag. It's our hooman's fav bag too. This bag carries a notebook & pen to our hooman's writing classes. Furr shure everyone in the class knows about us & knows she loves cats. Yes, there is a black cat on the bag & Inkee-Bear is the black sheep -- I mean cat, in this household.
