Cat Corner friends, do you remember Cheese, the beautiful calico we posed about a few months ago? She has been adopted! Now named Cali, she is settling in so well and even had time to write us a little update. These are all her words, however any human names have been removed.
I want to bring you up to date on my new home. My new owners love my affectionate nature (or so they tell me) and I like it very much in their house. I can tell they’re used to having cats around so I feel comfortable.
Chablis is a perfect gentleman but is a bit shy and standoffish so far. I don’t think he’s over missing his former housecat. Oh that reminds me, my new name is Cali (they just shortened it from my color) and I need to remind them to call PetMaxx on the change. I don’t mind because, as you know, I am allergic to all kind of cheese (You didn’t know?) and I am more comfortable not hearing “Cheese” day and night without a photographer taking my picture! I miss the French fries from my former owner, but they say they aren’t good for my waistline.
I have a shiny new collar with my tag around my neck. I hear that’s to keep me in the house, but with the fun I’m having, why try to leave? My favorite place to relax is the windows/ screened in porch. There they have a big “cat tree” which I find a good place to watch the birds and smell all the interesting smells and I since can’t go outside it’s fun to scratch the wooden legs and snooze a while in the afternoon sun.
They have all kinds of new toys: a funny red dot they swing around what they call their family room and I love trying to catch it. Haven’t made it yet - one of these days. There’s also a funny feather toy that goes around and around fast and I try to catch up
with it. Well I think it’s good exercise anyway. They have lots of little puff balls which Chablis carries all around the house, and I find them in the strangest places!
My favorite habit at nighttime is to jump up on the cabinet in the living room to watch myself in the big mirror on the wall. Hmmm, one of these days I’m going to need a trim!
That’s about all, give my best to all my friends and tell them one day soon they’ll have new homes too but in the meantime they’re lucky to get such good care from all of you.
All the best,
