Did anyone tell you about the day we met Mr. Peeps?
Well Kate reminded me of that day....
We go to the local animal shelter, walk into this very room, and there she is! A beautiful, pregnant tuxedo girl. So friendly too!, rubbing on us and climbing up onto Chris' shoulders.
But the office is busy and we weren't looking for another cat were we?
We go home and talk about it and Chris agrees to the following:
We will adopt the fat, pregnant momma and one of her kittens, a male, when she has them.
The next day I call the shelter and excitedly tell then that we 'want the pregnant momma and one of her kittens when she has them.' There is a silence on the other end of the phone. The lady finally says 'we don't have any pregnant cats.' hmmmm. 'what about the big huge fat black and white long haired cat in that room?' laughing is heard....
'oh, him? HIS name is Squeakers and he is a he, not pregnant just fat!!!'
lol all around!!!!
& Squeakers comes home with us the next day- squeaking his talk the whole way and eventually becomes known as Mr. Peeps who always had a lot to say.
No, she's not pregnant, just ummm, big boned.

RIP Mr. Peeps

Welcome to me
I don't remember when I was born, but it was between 1995 - 2000.
I was living at the local animal shelter (Mendocino County Animal Shelter) when I picked my current house mates. It was easy as pie. They came in to the cat room and I just walked right over to the man and climbed up on his shoulder and purred.
I have been living with them since 2005.
I also live with three dogs (Rain, Cali & Marlee) and three other cats (Big Kitty, Jester & Bramble) - I pretty much keep to myself but am a friendly guy-really.
On August 13th 2008 I was diagnosed with Chronic Renal Failure (CRF) - this is my story.
Most of the time my mom will be telling this story...sometimes I'll put in my two cents worth ;-)
See my lab results at the very end of my blog.
