That New Animal

I've never done a "Formerly Feral Friday" post before, but since I am eligible - here goes:

Yes, I used to be feral. Now, I spend a lot of time helping one of my Humans arrange books for workshops. This is me last September and I am still a bit miffed that they didn't upload my picture until AFTER Maggie Fu joined the family in October and they wanted to see HER pictures.

I should have seen it coming. The Human has this idea that sometimes when family events take one by surprise, that you can look back at photos taken earlier and, in retrospect, see "what's coming" by looking at them. Well, just look at the book I was pointing out to them:
That New Animal - a book about sibling rivalry and resistance to a new addition to the family. This was SIX weeks before they brought Maggie Fu home. Weird, huh?

Anyway, I've gotten used to having "the kid" around although she tends to monopolize all the playtime with the humans. BTW: Maggie Fu is having her, uh, surgery, on Monday (the human can't find the dictionary this morning to see what we call it in the Blogospheare) so keep her in your thoughts. That might slow her down for an hour or two at least.

It is interesting that you were able to predict this addition. I hope that if such a thing happens to me, Momma actually listens and we avoid the new addition thing.

We might be gettin' a new addition...

Good luck to her and her operashun! I'm glad I'm a boy kitty, momma says my operashun was much easier than the ones girl kitties get.

Cecilia & The 2Bs said...

Sounds like you really wanted the new addition.

Maggie Fu - good luck with your operation.

Millie said...

Charlie, you are quite handsome, and you look so intelligent. Tell Maggie Fu we wish her good luck with her operation.

You are a very smart kitty to see the new addition coming so early. I think the word you are looking for is ladygardenectomy. I don't know where it came from, but I have seen it around. Good luck to Maggie Fu and it will slow her down for a little while.

Dragonheart said...

Wow, you are a talented kitty to have predicted the newcomers arrival! Spooky! You also look very intelligent.

Good luck to Maggie Fu with her surgery.

Don't worry about the surgery Maggie Fu. It was easy and quick and I never felt a thing, just a little sore afterwards. I read someone called it a gardenladiectomy (I think it was KC) For boys it is a hohaectomy.

Best wishes for Maggie Fu for a quick recovery from her operation!

And you must be psychic!

Mette said...

Sixth sense?

Wish Maggie Fu the best from al the cats from Fem Herrers Land.

(by the way: For a little while I thought that you're human was having a baby.)

The Human is LOL! THAT would have gotten more than ME a little upset. (We just celebrated the Humangyrrl's birthday and are taking her "little" brother out for his 22nd this week) But the book does deal with a new little human -- Chalrie

Wow! I need that book. My new brother is 3 years old (the vet guesses) and he has lived with us for three months. I'm getting used to him but he still bugs sometimes.

Anita said...

I hope that Maggie Fu's surgery will be ok.

Catzee said...

Charlie, ya been neglected! They owe ya some treats.

Mattingly said...

Wow you are one smart kitty! Glad it's working out with Maggie Fu though. Hope everything went well with her surgery. When Harlie had hers it sure didn't slow her down... not even for a minute!
