Shhhh! You can’t see me, but I can see you! Aren’t I clever, finding yet another super secret hiding place without any help?! It is no wonder why, when I was a little kitten, that my family named me Mischief.
I am a happy and active indoor cat. Although I love everyone in my family, my favourite person is the young, female human in my house. I wait every morning, outside her bedroom door, meowing to be let in. She is the only person who can carry me around and who I allow to cuddle with me. I even like to sleep under her covers, but only hers no one elses; I wish my family would let me stay with her all day and all night.
Night time is best! There is a little rodent, in a cage, in her room and during the night I can watch it ever so closely. I have a kitty brother that I chase and wrestle with and a new doggy brother that I pretend to hate. In reality, I like to tease him and will even bite his ears. Haha! He is even a little scared of me, which I like even more.
My other favourite things are taking naps in the sunshine, watching the birds at the
feeders, and hiding when strange people come to the house. Once, when my family
was away for a week, I hid so well that the people who were supposed to look after me had to turn the entire house upside down to be sure that I was okay. Haha! My hiding spot was a guitar case that time. That was a good one!
Hello everyone! My life sure has been a crazy one! I came to live with my mom when one of Centennial Animal Hospital’s clients, who happened to be a breeder of Yorkshire Terriers, had her last litter of puppies. She knew it was my mom’s dream to have a Yorkshire terrier; I mean who wouldn’t want one?! When I first went home with my mom, I fit in very well with her herd of cats. Not only was I the same size as the cats but I acted basically the same. So, I figured, either I am a cat or my mom’s cats are dogs!
Our life changed when my dad came around. We moved to a new house and my Dad had this CRAZY springer spaniel that I learned to love; he was an acquired taste! My life changed again, when my mom brought home a tiny human who made so much noise. I don’t think anyone has slept well since! To my delight, we moved again but into a house in town this time. This was a perfect fit for me as country living was not my thing! At first, I thought we had moved into a quiet subdivision in town. That was until we met the neighbours. It appears that they all have those tiny, loud and very active humans as well!!
Life is always changing at our house. My mom pet sits other people’s animals so there are always new dogs and cats coming and going from our house. I usually don’t play with the dogs because they are too much for me; I much prefer the cats and kittens that my mom fosters. The best part about having different animals in our house is that I always get to meet their humans. Being as small as I am, I get lots of attention!
One of my favorite spots is on the back of the couch watching the world go by. I prefer my mom’s lap, but who am I kidding, anyone’s lap will do. I have learned to love this crazy life! I am still a bit nervous of tiny humans but when they are quiet, I even find that they can be quite snuggly.
