Happy 6-month Birthday to Hemming, Miss Marble, and Striped Girl!!!!
Foster Mommy just told me it's my 6-month birthday today! Wow, I'm a half-year old already? Right after she told me that, I ran into the bathroom and pawed the treat drawer! It's my birthday, so do I get treaties? Foster Mommy said I do!
I got a special half-birthday gift a few days ago. Someone named Kayla wants to adopt me! She's going to move close to where I live, so she'll be here on the 28th. After she's unpacked the major things, my foster parents and I will go meet her. I hope she's nice and has good hiding spots for me in her house! My foster parents made sure that she knows I will hide at first, and she said she's willing to take the time that I need to get used to her and come out of my shell. In fact, she was looking for a cat who would need extra love and attention, so she sounds like she'll be a really good mommy for me! I hope so!
I'm 6 months old? Wow, that seems old! I'm still a kitten, though, right? I can still play and have fun? My daddy, Tux, says I can. He even still plays, and he's a lot older than me! I sleep in the rose bushes under the humans' bedroom window now, with my sister Striped Girl, so I hear when the humans wake up and know that it's going to be food time soon. Then, I go over to the window-door and wait on the deck. I meow when I see them, talk to them to tell them that I'm ready for food, and then they come out to refill the water dish. They go back inside and get the food, then put two scoops of food on the deck. That's the cue for my sister to come running from the rose bushes for her breakfast. Sometimes our daddy joins us, but sometimes he's off hunting or doing other important things.
In the evening, we wait until it's time for the human daddy to leave in the car. Then we wait on the deck, patiently, until they see us. I go right up to the glass and meow again, but this time the human mommy comes over to the glass and talks to me. She puts her finger on the glass, and I put my paw on it. Then, she gives us food and water.
Are we really 6 months old today? Really? I love being outside with my sister Miss Marble and my daddy Tux, but I miss my mommy Leopard and my other littermate. My other littermate would be 6 months old today, too. I wonder where they are, and if they're still alive. It doesn't bother me much anymore, but it's in the back of my mind sometimes.
My life is pretty good right now, but the air is getting colder and it's getting more rainy. I don't like being wet! I hide under the deck in the big rainstorms, but most of the time I like being in the rose bushes. I used to hang out in the backyard or behind the fence, but it's too muddy back there. I sink down in the marshy grass! As long as I have my sister and my daddy, plus food, water, and someplace dry, I'll be ok.
