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.
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!
How do you get to sleep with this stupid cone on? I'm tryin' -- I'm tryin.' Meowmuh, can't you take this thing off? Puh-leeeze?! No? Not until it heals? Sigh. Maybe I'll try her bed upstairs.
Spirit: "I got up here with my cone on!" Inkee-Bear: "What IS around his neck?" Sophee: "I don't know. Better him than me!" Inkee-Bear: "You're so right! Wonder if it has to do with that mosquito bite?" Sophee: "I bet it does.
See? Told you I could do it. I can run on my exercise wheel even with this cone on. Oops. Meowmuh said: "Ouch!" But it didn't hurt me. You didn't see me yelpin,' cryin' or stoppin.' No sireee. I love my exercise wheel. Meowmuh said she got it particularly for me because I have so much energy. That's me. I play hard, sleep hard & eat hardy.
I'm gonna' prove that I can do anything with this cone on. I can run on this exercise wheel. Yes I can. Just watch. So what if I couldn't jump into the stroller. I'll figure it out & jump in there later today. If not today, tomorrow. There's not a cone in the world that can stop me from doing what I can do without the cone.
I've measured & measured & measured. Don't think I can get up in there right now. But, trust me, I will jump into my stroller. I can do it. I will do it. I can do anything I set my mind to. My sibs know it, Meowmuh knows it & I bet you do too.
