Formerly Feral Friday - Missy's True Confessions

I was tagged by that dashing reporter, Mr. Hendrix, for True Confessions.

For those that don't know, I didn't live with Mommie ML and Daddy Charley until two years ago, 5/28/05. A nice lady named Natalie took me in off the streets. She almost got arrested for keeping a cat. While my past is my secret, I was, I confess, pretty wild. When Natalie found me, I was expecting a litter and I was about five months old. She found homes for all my kittens, got me fixed and had my claws removed. Natalie really wanted to keep me, but she had severe allergies to my medium-length fur, it's very silky and thick. So she brought me to my new home here. OK, it's all about me:
  1. I don't like anything but dry food to eat. maybe a little tuna water. oh, and Temptations.
  2. I only drink water from a glass, preferable one a human just got. I have trained Young KC to do the same.
  3. I don't climb. I don't have claws on my front paws. I am always sharpening my paws however, just in case.
  4. Back when I was a "cat of the streets", I climbed everything. Telephone poles, trees, houses, even a four story building.
  5. I don't kill or hunt anything. I've got a good life, everything I need is given to me.
  6. My hobby is napping and I am very skilled at it. Practice, practice, practice!
  7. I had a litter of five kittens before I was five months old.
  8. Most people are impressed with my beautiful crystal blue eyes and my mackerel tabby patterns.
  9. I don't like to be held or even touched too much. But I am beginning to copy KC and go rubbing up against my humans and allow them to pet me a bit. Feels good.
  10. I am very quiet, I almost never meow... but I do hiss. And it's a good one -- it's the Big Hissie!
  11. I love catnip. Mommy ML puts a bit on my bed every night. I roll and roll on it until I go to sleep (I do sleep near Mommie ML, but never touching).
  12. I love my kitty carrier. I sleep in it during the day and run to it if I need a safe place to hide. My beautiful blue Gizzy Quilt is in the kitty carrier.

Pretty Missy I am so glad you have a very good forever home, even if you don't let them touch you much. I know you are loved very much though. I sharpen my claws a lot too even though I don't have any either. Seems like we have a lot in common. You also have a very nice sister.

That is a great list Missy! I'm sorry you had such a rough life before you came to your forever home. Thank goodness we're former ferals!
It sounds like you and KC have been a good influence on each other. You've taught her to get what she wants (water from a glass) and she is teaching you to like physical affection. I'll only lay on my mommy on the if she doesn't touch me with her hands. At night tho, everything goes. About 6 months ago, I started allowing pets when I sleep next to mommy. It made her very happy.
You do have great furs, I can tell from your pictures, and what can I say about those eyes? Stunning.
I'm glad you have a safe place you love like your carrier. I have my "fort" (an upside down catbed). Thanks for doing your list Missy!
