Now I just want to know why my Mommy always keeps her camera on the bedside table by her head?

I like to lie stretched out on the garden bench because then I can catch a breeze with my tummy. I also like to eat grass and look at the flowers (which I don't eat). Here are my favorites:
These are pincushion flowers and they bloom all the way through December if Mommy keeps pruning them back. This picture is from summer when they were kind of little but now they look like big pincushion shrubberies!

kibble - always good; I don't obsess over it like Thomassina but it's good stuff
tuna juice - *swoon* This is totally the nectar of the gods. Whenever it is served, I feel compelled to lick the chef with appreciation.
turkey and giblets cat food - this is one of my favorite cat food flavors..there is just something about this one that makes me think of birds...and thinking of birds reminds me of my favorite pastime of lying in the next door neighbor's yard and admiring their bird room through the window. Good memories.
any fish flavored cat food - this has just the right combination of qualities to make it totally appealing: lots of flavor and an amazing stink that just lights up the whole house!
crickets - I've tried a few of these and they are nothing to write home about.
dust bunnies - my Mommy lets these roam the house largely unmolested and I've tried a few; They really don't taste good and sometimes they make me sneeze.
PS As you can see, I am definitely a member of the clean plate club. This warrants a tuna treat, don't you think?

It's so hot that even the squirrels did not dare come out on our deck. There may be a screen between us and the deck, but in an emergency we can still defend the house! And in the meantime, we'll just lounge here and enjoy the view...

Soon I was getting good food every day and lots of attention. This was great! I didn't like the whole "going to the vet for tumor removal and shots" part of it, but otherwise life is good. I'm a very extroverted kitty so constant human contact makes me really happy. I'm not so sure about those other cats in my house (except Emma - she's my buddy) but I like having a place to stay.
Mommy keeps saying that she's trying to find a new home for me, but I've noticed that she doesn't exactly try too hard....

that's about it - I'm very easygoing....

My name is Thomassina. I am 7 years old, and I have always had a home, thank you very much. Unfortunately, my mommy and daddy moved away and decided to leave me in the house for whoever bought it. Fortunately, this turned out to be
a complete sucker....good and wonderful thing.
I used to be an outside kitty but my Mommy moved me inside right away. I had lots of fun playing on the carpet while my Mommy and her friend Margaret were trying to pull out wallpaper and paint the house. I thought I would get to be the only kitty in the house until one day when my Mommy left. When she came back, she had a truck full of stuff and - those two Other Cats.
I get along better with the rest of the herd now, but I still like to get extra special pampering sometimes. Since I am the littlest kitty, I like it when someone stands over me to watch me eat. I also like it that I get special outside privileges that the others don't. Sometimes I smirk at Emma when I am on the deck and she is behind the screen door. Life is good.

I was a sweet little teen kitten when they found me. The other feral cats didn't like me and so I didn't get to stay in any of their groups. When it rained, they wouldn't let me hide in the crawlspaces with them and I had to sit out on the complex picnic table and get all wet.
But then one day my Mommy took me to the vet and got me shots and got me fixed (I don't know why - I wasn't broken) and then I came home to meet Emma. Emma smacked my carrier the first time she met me, but now we're friends. The secret of friendship is this: Even though I'm younger, bigger and outweigh her by at least 6 or 7 pounds, I let Emma think she is the alpha cat - unless she's getting into food I really want!.
lots of attention(I'm so cuddly!)
pastry - especially sweet ones

Some friends of my Mommy found me near the courthouse in Manassas in 2000. Mommy came to see me at her friend's house and couldn't resist taking me home. I've been pampered and spoiled ever since.
My Mommy insists in bringing other cat interlopers into my house, though. I like Jamie and sometimes Bob is nice but I do not like having that other calico here. I am the queen of this house and that is simply that.
cat food - treats, please!

the injustice of receiving breakfast later than 5:45 a.m. on the weekends - how can you sleep like that when I am utterly famished!! Emma
