Angel China Cat would be 17 today!

Today would be China Cat's 17th birthday but she ran off to the Bridge last month, on July 30th. I wish that I could have known her longer than 3 months but she taught me quite a few important cat beliefs. Such as always making sure there is plenty of food in the house and enjoying treats as often as possible. At the very least, be sure to get your 9:00 treats before everyone goes to bed! Plus whenever boxes are in the house, they belong to cats. When Food Lady put all of my canned stinky goodness in the cupboard I got to play with the food box. Since I'm hiding you probably can't see me, right?!?!?!?
Do you see any cats in this picture?!?!?
Oh, here I am! 
I love to play in boxes! China Cat told me that is fun for cats and she was right!

This picture was taken of China Cat & Willow on Willow's 9th birthday so I thought today, on China Cat's birthday, would be a good day to post it. Willow ran off to the Bridge on March 30th. I never met Willow but China Cat loved her, so I do too! I hope that China Cat & Willow are having fun celebrating China Cat's birthday at the Rainbow Bridge. Now I have to go snuggle with my Food Lady because her eyes are leaking.....
China Cat and Willow loved snuggling together. February 13, 2013 - Willow's 9th Birthday

Toesday and a Tail

I love to lay out on the counter in our screened-in porch. There is a ficus tree right next to the counter and I like to look at it. Sometimes I try to climb it.
I like to think about climbing trees when I am out here by the ficus.

Oh, Hi there, Food Lady!
What do you mean that you want to show everyone my pink toes?!?!?
Oh, and my longest of long tail?!?!
I didn't know that it was Tuesday Toes and Tails Day so I guess I can show them to everyone. See how my toes are as pink as my nose! 
Maybe it will be Nose and Toes Day for me!
All my toes are pink - but a manly pink & purrfect for a mancat!

Now for a nice relaxing afternoon, if we are done taking pictures of me!
See how long my tail is in this picture!

Tummy and Toes Tuesday

I wanted all of you to see how I am the longest 6 month old kitten ever! From my back toes to my front toes all stretched out I am 36 inches long! That is a whole yardstick of gingery goodness!

World Cat Day 2013

Hooray, It's World Cat Day today!
But first I, Spike, wanted to say how overwhelmed we are by all the nice comments from everyone for Sweet China Cat. 
It certainly seems like a wonderful world that I have come to live in here, with all the loving cats, dogs and their people.
Today I am 6 months and 9 days old so I don't know a lot about the world yet. I borrowed a globe from the little ones that visit here so I could try and figure out the world. OK, I didn't really figure it out but it seems like a great place, especially if they have a World Cat Day! I assume that also includes kittens because we are really cats but just not grown up yet!

My Very Sad News

Hi, it's me, Spike William. 
I'm sorry that I have to be the one here to bring our bad news. But I am a good little mancat and I will get through with it... 
As you know from our last post, China Cat was not feeling well. She stopped eating and drinking and didn't want to play with me anymore. I went into my wicker basket on the porch and put my paws together to pray and purr for her to get better.
 Last Tuesday, July 30th, when China Cat started throwing up, My Lady said that she had to go see the V-E-T and put China Cat into the PTU. I was hoping that they wouldn't be gone for too long but my Lady came back home alone. The V-E-T said it was very bad because her kidneys weren't doing what they were supposed to be doing and they were really tiny. 
So my Lady kept crying but she told me that now China Cat and Willow are together again at the Rainbow Bridge. I only got to know China Cat for 3 months but I miss her too. So that I won't be too sad my Lady plays with me every day with Da Bird wand toy and she throws my fuzzy ball toys down the hallway over and over again. I am a good mancat and I always fetch the toys back to her. And I get treats every night, just like China Cat and Willow did.
My Lady made a lovely picture of China Cat and it has the same colors as the one she made for Willow. After they are printed they will hang on the wall together. Now I have to go snuggle with my Lady - she was very sad while she was helping me make our sad post today.
