Adopt cats, we deserve it!Adopt cats, we deserve it!What Brian?  Oh, it’s my turn?  If you would have told me a bit sooner and I would have been ready!

Hello everyone, I hope you are all having a totally fantastic weekend.  Brian was reading us the comments from the other Sister Saturday posts and I didn’t really realize how many new readers he has, or now I should say “we have”, since Brian is letting us share in the fun too.  So I thought I’d tell you a little bit about me first.  Dad came and adopted me and Sister Zoe on the same day.  I lived with a very nice foster lady named Ann, and she called me Smokey.  I thought that name was a bit silly, but she treated me great, so I never complained.  When I was a wee kitten I was attacked by a doggie, but fortunately some very nice humans saw it happening and they saved me.  I was tore up pretty bad and had to have some surgery, but I can’t say I really remember much about that.  Although I’m fine now, I really don’t like to be held or picked up, it hurts.  I do tolerate being held while I’m getting my claws trimmed, but I do tend to get a bit wiggly.  I do love to sit close to Dad and Mom though, and I can fluff up my Dad’s tummy anytime I want.  I still get a little nervous when I hear the neighbor dogs barking, but Brian assures me that not all doggies are bad, I just had an nasty encounter with a bad one.  Brian told me there were two big doggies that used to live here, but they went Over the Rainbow Bridge before I got here.  Outside of that, I don’t really have any other side effects of that bad day, I still love to run, romp and play with the best of them.

Asthma, I do have asthma, which is no fun when I have one of those breathing problems, but I’m coping quite well.  I was taking some pills, but it caused me to put on a little weight, so we went to an inhaler thingy that Dad helps me with if I have an attack.  I don’t like that mask over my nose, but I do tolerate it since it helps right away.  But generally I’ve done great and might only have an asthma attack once every couple of months now.  But they sure are scary when they happen.  So, that’s my background for those of you who didn’t know about me.

Brother Brian assigns each of us tasks to do around the house, and Brian appointed me as the Alarm Cat.  I’m quite honored and take this roll seriously.  My primary job is to make sure that Dad and Mom are awake by 5:00am every single day.  Let me tell you, I am very good at this, although sometimes I worry about them not waking up on time so I actually start a bit early just to make sure.  My other role is that of Group SpokesCat.  The others don’t talk too much, but me, I talk all of the time, so if there is something that needs to be said for the group, it’s up to me to get the message across.  I guess you could say I’m the Press Secretary to The Brian King.

I hope all of you have a fun weekend, and we’ll chat again.  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Oh Gracie – I didn’t know about the dog’s… you poor thing… that must have been so scary…. I am so glad you are OK. I never knew your parents had dogs.. Silly me just assumed they were cats all the way… You and your beau are sure two of a kind. He trys to wake us up by 5AM every day too, but like you, I think he gets nervous that he will be late & start early. This AM he got the job done by 4:15! Alex is kissing your picture… he says “come on over – he… Read more »

Gracie, it is a sad fact that some dogs will actually attack cats and kittens, and you were the victim of one of them. I am so glad you ended up at your Forever Home with your wonderul humans and siblings.

Oh, and Pee Ess: that is pretty interesting that you have an inhaler – I didn’t know cats could have asthma.

You are the first cat I’ve met with asthma. I was sure it was only limited to humans up until now! Your Dad is right – not all doggies are bad. Sometimes, they just get carried away. We are so glad you are safe and sound now. xx

Hi there Sister Gracie. It was so much fun hearing all about you. We are so glad you got to take over the blog today. Our job is to wake up the Mom every morning at five too. But we just do that to make sure we get our fuds really early.
Glad Dad got the inhaler for you so you don’t have to take those pills that make you a tiny bit chubby any more. Bet you get lots and lots of window whiffins today. Nice and cool. Take care.

Oh Gracie, Brian is right, most doggies are very nice. I am so sorry that happened to you. My sister Rosie doesn’t like to be picked up much either. Oh, and being the alarm cat is VERY important. I am the alarm dog around this house.

Hannah has asthma too Gracie – she takes half a tablet every other day but if it gets worse (the weather affects it sometimes) she gets it everyday until it subsides. Mum grinds the tablet down with the back of a spoon and mixes it with a small amount of wet food and it goes down a treat. It doesn’t stop her being queen of all she surveys!

We are sorry about you being messed up by the doggie, but very glad that you were saved and ended up in a loving home. We didn’t know cats can have asthma and get treated the same way as humans.

You are a wonderful press secretary and I bet you are a pawsome alarm clock. I know what hard work that is cause I am the alarm cat here. The humans seem to get annoyed when I wake them on weekends though. Don’t they understand they should get up at the same time every day? Mommy had a bout with asthma (hers was caused by a virus) so we knows it can be very scary. We are all very glad they has medicine to help you with that. Please let Brian know I would love to come snuggle with him… Read more »

Oh Gracie – you have an amazing story to tell, and I’m so glad Brian shared his bloggy with you so we could get to know you better. I’m so sorry you had a bad experience with dat doggie when you were little. Brian is right – not all doggies are bad. In fact, I has many doggie friends on line anyway, and a couple next door in person. We sniff each other and those little doggies usually look for me when they are outside. So nice getting to know you better.

Gracie, I love how Brian assigns chores for everybody..that’s really funny! He has always struck me as a very organized cat, so I’m not surprised. It was good to see you today, Gracie. I’m glad you all get different turns. This time, I noticed the ear tufts you have. A teensy trace of Maine Coon, like me, I say!

Have a good weekend, furriends (and to mom and dad, too)

Hi Gracie. I am so sorry you were attacked by a dog. I’m so glad there was good human who caught the incident and saved you. Brian is right, not all dogs are bad but we understand you get nervous when you hear barking.
Your assignment as an alarm cat is very important! One of my kitties wakes me up every morning to make sure I’m not late to serve their breakfast 🙂

I am so sorry that you got hurt by a mean doggie. Not all doggies are mean, but we can understand why hearing barking makes you nervous. Don’t worry about not liking to be picked up. Neither of us likes it, either and Mom doesn’t mind a bit. Just make sure that you get plenty of cuddle time.

Wow. We didn’t know about you and the dog. Our encounter with a dog has always just been Whisky and she’s a really nice sister to have. She does chase us sometimes, but it’s all in fun and we chase her back!
We’re so glad you are now living with Brian and your other sisters. 🙂
