I recently rediscovered this blog entirely by accident. A lot of stuff has happened in the past 6 years; I'm shocked this thing is still here! Anyway, if you're looking for me, I've moved

Something's wrong with my person....
My person hasn't been feeling well recently. I'm not sure what's wrong with her. It started about a month after we got here.
This place is strange. It smells different, and it's so hot and humid! I'm not sure why we came here; I think it has something to do with That Man. They were packing, a long time ago, and then the strange men came and took almost everything away. After that, they put everything in the car, including me and the caged tidbits!
We drove for two days, and I got used to it. I didn't like it, but we'd been driving for too long to be going to the vet's office.... Then something really odd happened -- they drove the car into a big, dark, noisy floating thing! The car was on there for days -- and they left me in it!! Every time the floating thing stopped, they took me out and we'd walk around some strange place that smelled different, then they'd put me back in the car and leave me all alone again!!!
I was very glad when they finally drove the car off of that strange thing. There was a woman waiting for us. Somehow, she managed to squeez into the car and we drove to her place. That was strange, too. It wasn't an entire building, but just part of it! It was nice, though. I thought we were at our new home and was really enjoying the attention from the woman and her man ... but then we left! We drove to a house that belonged to a different woman. It smelled strange there and for the first while, I was locked into a single room, but the woman whose smell said she owned the house let me out. I think my person was surprised when she got back and found me out of the room she'd put me in!
We stayed there for several days, during which time, I didn't see my person or That Man much. Then we started driving again. I was not happy, but at least they didn't make me stay in the car alone. They took me out at every grassy area they stopped in and put me on my harness! I was too busy being scared by the traffic sounds and dog smells to preen for the people admiring me. I kept leading my person to the nearest door into the buildings, but she wouldn't let me in! I got to sleep with them every night, too.
Several days later, we were in a room where we stayed for many days. Then, we wound up in a new place! The house we're in now. It was very empty and smelled like nobody had lived here in months and months, maybe years. Then, strange men came with a bed for my people, other strange men came with a washer and drier, and eventually, yet more strange men came with the boxes full of my person's stuff from our old house! My person's still working on putting the stuff away, but I don't mind -- there are lots of places to hide here. They even bought me a kitty tree and put it by the living room window, and also a comfy window seat to put in the bedroom!
I was really starting to like it here. There weren't any dogs to be afraid of ... for the first week or two.... Then they brought home a puppy! It was big -- not as big as the dog at my person's parents' house, but pretty big for a puppy. It's even bigger, now, and it's still growing! I still don't like having it here, but my person and That Man showed me that I could scare the dog, too, so now I'm not afraid to be in the same room as it is -- as long as I'm on something tall, where it can't get at me!
I'm actually starting to get along with That Man, strange as it may seem. He gets up a lot earlier than my person, so he feeds me my moist food for breakfast! Then he puts me in the bedroom with my sleeping person and leaves. I think we're coming to an understanding. I just lay in wait for him outside the bedroom early in the morning, and he feeds me! Maybe he's not so bad.... Maybe....
But I think he impregnated my person. She smells like she's going to have kittens. It's confusing, though ... she should be about ready to give birth, but she hasn't gotten any bigger or started nesting! Maybe it takes longer in humans?
A couple of months ago, she started getting sick. Not terribly sick at first, but I could tell she wasn't feeling her best. Now, she's really, really sick. She throws up a lot. A lot more than she would if she had hairballs, even! And she doesn't move around much; I think it makes her sicker if she tries to do anything. She carries a bucket around with her everywhere, and uses it at least once a day (usually more). The only good thing I can see in all of this is tha she cuddles with me a lot more; still, I wish she was feeling better.

|It's like old times!
Everything has been so wonderful since that nap! I'm not afraid to hang around my person any more; now I know that she really still does like me. We've been having such good times! We've taken several more such naps (I think my person isn't feeling her best) and I've had a warm lap whenever I asked for it! She's even carried me around some, just like she used to before she left! I'm happier than I can state! Everything's the way it should be again, especially since That Man is gone for the week and I have my person all to myself! Current Mood: ecstatic

|She likes me more!
That Man is still here, but I don't mind it so much anymore. Earlier, my person wandered out to the computer room and grabbed me. Then she took me upstairs to her bedroom and curled up with me to take a nap! She actually sought me out for company even though That Man was here!! What's more, when he came upstairs and woke her, she wasn't too happy about it and really seemed to want to stay here with me rather than go downstairs with him, but she went anyway. He was especially nice to me for the rest of the day. I guess she showed him where he stands in her affections -- or where I stand! Current Mood: optimistic

That Man came back again this evening. I really don't like it when he's here. I have the feeling that he doesn't want me around my person, or maybe that he just doesn't like me. I don't think I'll be seeing her much this weekend, as usual. Current Mood: disappointed

The strange men came back this morning. They packed some more and then loaded all of the big boxes with my person's stuff in them into a big truck! Now I know I don't like this! I'm still not sure what exactly is going on, though, but it can't be good. the last two times there were boxes involved, she went away and left me here with her parents.... I don't want to be abandoned again!! Current Mood: scared

Strange men came today and packed up my human's stuff into big boxes. They were here all day. I didn't like them, so I hid in a closet until my human dug me out and showed me off. I wish she wouldn't do that, but at least she moved me to the computer room after she was done playing pecock so I had access to a litter box. I'm not sure what's going on with my person's stuff, but I don't think I like it.... Current Mood: anxious

I quote from my original entry on 6-29-03:
"So, here I am, satisfying my endless curiosity by creating yet another diary/blog/journal. Hey ... I can always turn it into a journal for my cat, Princess. That sounds like fun. (My darn human slept late again today. I didn't get my breakfast until 12:30 PM! If only she hadn't fixed the screen door last week so I couldn't open it anymore....)"
Yes, that's the official plan, people, this is now my cat's journal! ^^
Liz: Everyone, I'd like you to meet Princess. Princess, this is everyone. You get to tell them all about yourself now!
Princess: Mrrorrw? Mrrowrrwrrreow.
Liz: Ok, well, you heard it strait from the cat's mouth! Do you think I should translate?
Liz: Alrighty then, she said "Hi! My name is Princess. I'm part Siamese and part American Shorthair; most people think I'm calico because of my coloring, but my person sets them straight! I was born on July 1st
, 1999, with a claft jaw, which wasn't discovered until I got to my second home. They promptly took me to the vet and had it wired together; my person tells me that if she parts the fur on my chinny-chin-chin, she can still see the wire! I met my person while I was at my second home; she used to babysit and housesit for them all the time. I'm very shy, so it took me several visits to warm up to her, but when I was given to her mother, she was the only person I knew in the new house and I was sooo scared that I didn't let her out of my sight for about a week! By the time I was finally settled in, Liz was my person; sometimes I'll be friendly with the other people, though I really hate the dog!" Current Mood: amused
