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.
If you can't see the video, click on the Title above. Meowmuh included some videos of the fire so you can see how scary it was. She woke up after 4 AM to the noise of planes & helicopters flying over our house. She looked outside. The sky behind the mountains was bright orange--like a sunrise except it was too early for that. She opened a door & we could smell smoke.
The hoomans let the four of us out of our module for a few hours every day. I admit, I went crazy. I raced 'round the room & up & down those cat trees. The hoomans told Meowmuh they'd never seen anything like it. Meowmuh said: "That's Spirit." The only problem was, the hoomans didn't feed us our food so we all got sick. Gracee didn't eat for a week.
We had to evacuate just after 4:30 AM on Tuesday, December 5. The wind was blowing so hard, the smoke was so thick, ashes & embers--Meowmuh told Auntie Rika & us to "Stay calm" but we were scared. We went to Auntie Rika's house to spend the night but the next day we had to evacuate from her house. So we went to the Best Little Cat House in Pasadena.
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'm 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.
