Whiskers



Hi my name is Whiskers and mom says I am her favorite but I also hear her tell the other animals the same thing so not sure if its important or not. I am sorta a rescue cat. Several years ago mom had a cat named TJ (trouble junior named after her cat Trouble). TJ was a purrrrrty calico cat that always got into trouble. Mom had a appointment to get TJ fixed but was keeping her inside till then as she was in season. Well a lady came to visit mom and opened the door and TJ ran outside and went straight across the street to the neighbors tom cat. Mom says cats usually have a mating ritual they go through before mating but TJ knew mom was right on her heels to catch her so she skipped that part. She went under the neighbors boat and backed up to the tomcat and I was conceived! For some reason mom calls TJ a bad word (sl*t). After me and my siblings were born mom found homes for us. I went to Nannies (mom's mom) she treated me like a baby. She washed my face every day and talked baby talk to me all the time. When nannie got sick and was afraid I would trip her because I liked walking around her feet she ask mom to find a home for me. Mom went to the mountains and brought me back home with her. I have been with her for 4 years. Mom trained me to go outside to potty. Sometimes when I really really have to go in the middle of the night mom isn't real chipper about getting woke up to open the door. Each morning I love sitting on mom and tickling her with my whiskers or just staring at her till she wakes up. Once her eyes are open I hop down and run to the door so I can go outside. When we moved to Hidden Haven I had to ride in the van with another cat, iguana and 2 dogs. I was scared but mom kept talking to me and rubbing under my chin to calm me down. I love when mom rubs under my chin. Mom calls me a addict cause I like catnip. I can't help it. Whenever I smell catnip I have to have it no matter how tight it is packaged. I want it all! Mom hides it in the freezer now so I can't get it. She did tell me she is planting me a catnip patch this spring. I think I am going to be in heaven!!
