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.
Jeff, our webdesigner, charlescreative.com, thinks our pic resembles the Chinese symbol for Yin & Yang. Yin & Yang has been a fundamental concept in Chinese philosopy & culture since before the 3rd century BCE.
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?
Inkee-Bear: Fire up that new CD! Gotta’ see what that ‘beat’ thing is. Our hooman loves Cuba's music. Spirit: More than she loves me? Inkee-Bear: Probably.
No, I don't want to get up. No, don't turn on the TV. I don't want to watch the Rose Parade. I need more, you know, sleep. Whether it is or isn't New Years yet, I/we wish all you 2 & 4-legged critters out there -- a purrfectly, meowvelous, absolutely pawsome Happy, Healthy & Productive New Year!! Happy 2019!!
We're exhausted. We've been taking down our Christmas decorations all day. Kind of sad. All the Santas, the deer, the angels, the elves, they're all getting packed away in baggies, bags, & plastic bins. This festive Christmas throw covered our big recliner. But now it's time to get it washed & put away with all the other things for next Christmas.
Inkee-Bear: "We're waitin' for Santa. Sleep? Did you say sleep? Tonight? The night before Christmas? I keep tellin' Spirit. We have to be patient. But Spirit is--well, you probably already figured it out." Spirit: What? I'm patient -- most of the time. So what if I jump at every little noise? I'm what you call high-strung.
I have a question, a VERY important question! So, please think very carefully before you answer because this is the most important question ever, I mean ever. So take your time. This Santa thing, you know, keeping a list & checking it twice? -- well just how good does a critter have to be to be on Santa's good & nice list?
This is clearly the right box for me. My name could just as well be 'Priority" as Spirit because everyone knows I'm a priority in our house -- all day, all night, every day. A priority. I'll ask if I can change my name to Spirit Priority instead of just Spirit. Reckon I'll just keep this box furr-ever.
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?
Ahhh. Yep, this has been a long day. I think I finally found a position that I can sleep in on Meowmuh's bed. Guess what? I showed all of them! Even with this cone on, I proved that I could navigate, eat, run on the exercise wheel, climb to the top of the cat tree & now, I'm gonna' sleep. If that isn't 'spirit,' I don't know what is. Sweet dreams!
