A blog by two cats who used to live in the same house in Northern Virginia. Unfortunately, they are both no longer with us.

Meezer Man Cat Monday

This is our cousin Toby who lives with Mom's brother and family in the Richmond, VA area. He used to be Grandpa's kitty, but Grandpa died ten years ago. Then he was Grandma's kitty, but he went to live with Mom's brother when Grandma went into assisted living. He would have come to live with us, but Dad knew we wouldn't get along.
So, Toby moved to a household of cats--plus one dog. Early on Toby fought with one of the kitties there who ended up biting his ear and inflicting a permanent battle scar. Toby turned 13 last month.
Why are we featuring Toby? Well, it turns out that Mom went to visit him--and her sister as well. We thought that Mom would return on Friday, but we heard secondhand--through our nice catsitter Kathy--that Mom decided to extend her trip and visit her brother and sister. She didn't even consult us!
Plus, NOW she thinks we broke the computer. It's grinding and grinding when she logs on, so she thinks it may have some kind of virus or something. It's NOT our fault!
We're glad she's home, but we don't like the way she seemed to forget about us and visited other cats.

Oh he looks like a wonderful meezer family member! I am very sorry your mom extended her stay but I'm sure she had fun with her family and that always makes for a happier woman.

Humans seem to have an uncanny ability to adore other cats than their own just fine.... Very hard to keep them in check!
And I KNOW you didn't break the computer, probably her when she used it again after SUCH a long time away she might have forgotten the proper protocol....

Toby sounds ok.
But it wasn't nice of your Mom to visit the whole world and forget about you guys!

I stopped reading after it said that she didn't consult you. I am disgusted.

Humans are very thoughtless. He is a divine cat though, but she has two divine cats.

Toby looks so sad! An we think it is cause Granmom doesn't visit much.

We'd like a kitty like Toby to stay with us... He seems very nice.

Visiting other cats - the shame. Glad that your mom is home but sorry to hear she is having computer problems.

Hi Toby! It's furry nice to meet you!

Oh, and our Lady says that if you have a grinding sound while the computer is coming up, it could be that the hard drive is getting ready to die. It might be a good time to copy all your pictures and important files onto a new one before the old one goes completely.
