I was just a baby when I found myself wondering through the streets. I ate what little I could find, and tried to stay out of the way of those big noisy metal boxes with wheels. Somehow, I knew that if they got me, I would use up my nine lives fast. I came across other animals that were also alone, but they had to watch out for themselves. They didn't have time for a scruffy little black kitten like me. I'd peak in the houses and see little kittens playing with yarn and being held and petted. Oh, how I wanted a family of my own.
That night, "Mom" introduced me to my new "Dad". I turned on my "motor" and he seemed to like me. Meoooooow!!! After a nice long sleep in my new bed, I was ready to play! I finally got to go in the "big" house! What a place that was...so much to explore, and so much to get into! I ran back and forth so fast, I slid into the wall a few times, but my head's pretty hard. My biggest discovery was another kitty. She didn't seem too glad to share her house with me. She told me her full name was Ms. Mugsy D. Meow, and that if I would be nice to her, I could call her Mugsy. She seemed downright mad that I was there and kept saying naughty words to me. But I guess I'll just have to show her that I'm only a baby! "Mom" and "Dad" even let me sleep on their bed. I sleep so hard that it doesn't matter where I fall over, but it is nice to have them near in case I have a bad kitty dream.
I also discovered this thing that moves on a screen that I love to chase. "Mom" told me that it was a mouse, and she was working on my very own web page, so everyone could meet me. I want Mom to tell everybody what a pretty kitty I am, I guess I'm conceited, 'cause I'll sit in front of the mirror and stare at myself, but I like looking at that kitty that has all that long shiny black fur. It even moves when I do!
Mom says I'm an unusual kitty........I love to play in water. Instead of calling me, turn on the water, any running water will do, and I'll be there! I jump in the shower and help bat the water on my hoomins, I lay in the sink when Dad is trying to shave, and I even tried to flush myself down that big white bowl in the bathroom. In fact, I sleep in the bathroom until bedtime, then I have a special "kitty nook" in Mom and Dad's room to curl up in. One of my "jobs" is being an alarm clock......every morning at 7:00, (ok, sometimes before) I nibble on Dad and purr real loud to wake him up. Then it's time for "tag with Mugsy". Of course, I always win! Mugsy's such a sore loser, when she doesn't win, she'll slap me and say some not so nice things to me. Oh well, there's a lot of other things to get into! Like shoelaces.....I have a bad habit (so Mom says) of chewing everyone's shoelaces off. I'm just teething, and I don't chew on cords or anything, but now I can't find shoelaces anymore, they always seem to be put out of my reach.
Sometimes my sisfur Mugsy slaps me and says those nasty H & G words to me, so I decided to enroll in Mr. Frass' Ninja School. I studied really hard, and I make sure I practice every day. Now when Mugsy gets mean to me, I can defend myself! I just hope she doesn't find out about the school, or I'll be in really big trouble !!!
