Hello all you cats out there. This is Hope and while you have heard about me quite a bit from my big sister Shilgiah, I haven't really talked for myself so since Shilgiah and Tommy are sleeping, this seemed like a good opportunity to chat.
I really like my balcony and share it with my brother and sister who think it is theirs.
As you know, January 20th 2009 was the day I found my true and real mom and so she named me Hope. Never in my life was I able to trust people or other cats much...until recently. So, I was kind of scared for a few months and when I get scared I scream and growl and use my lethal claws to try to protect myself.
During the past month, I have really begun to feel so comfortable that I rarely feel like doing those things and even enjoy napping in the same room with my sibs. I still like to have my study to myself at night. Food is always there when I need a nibble. Still, I do like to stand in the kitchen on my back legs and stretch up to where mom is getting our soft supper and meow politely (o.k. well almost politely). I'm happy now and not scared anymore. I even curl up on my mom's lap and purr 'cause I am so content.
I hope all of you kitties and your human moms and dads have a really nice week to come!
