Don't have alot of time as I preparing for the weekend. Just wanted to upload an old picture of my eldest cat Her royal Highness THE Empress Tao, and goodness don't forget who rules this house! lol This pic is of her when she was a baby, she is about 3 years old now. I got her from an odd situation too. Her first owner couldn't take care of the kittens when they were little (not sure why they didn't have mom) so she gave them away to different people. This one lady took one kitten and was keeping her in the shed in a BIRDCAGE!!!! OMG, as soon as I heard about this I went over there and I rescued her. At the time I was just preparing to move out on my own, sort of...I moved in with my best friend and she said it was ok if I brought a cat. Good thing my new baby was so small, she could scoot under the door when it was closed and thus escape my roommate's Husky/lab mix. Eventually she learned she was the smarter of the two, and she would sit on the cat tree and smack Pancho (the dog) upside the head anytime he came too close to her. She is very smart and when she was young learned several tricks, much better then Pancho did! lol.
I'm going to my mother's house this weekend, hope to borrow her digital camera and take a new pic of Cody, he got another trim that went horribly wrong...good thing he's cute no matter what! My mother also has a cat, though she never really wanted one...she got adopted by Murphy, the neighbors cat. And if possible I'll get a pic of him and share his story.
Have a great and safe weekend, see you all on Monday!


  1. Oh - sweet baby! In a BIRDCAGE? That's HORRIBLE!

  2. I know, I can't believe what some people do to their pets. Thankfully, though she is a little off...overall I think she came through the experience in good shape. She just has to have everything on her terms. :)

  3. What an adorable little baby. How sweet.
