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.
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!
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.
