|New buddies: Stephen and Tiger|
Hi! My name is Tiger, I'm six years old, and I'm the newest member of the Clem Clan. I've decided to take over my new mom's blog today so you can get to know me a little better. Because I'm a cat, and it's all about me.
Last night I came to live with the Clem Clan. They are my third family. My new mom says the Clem Clan is my forever family, but I get the feeling she is only tolerating me. I don't think she really appreciates the specialness of cats. The other people in the clan are great! My new dad is so happy I came to live with him, I can tell. He smiles at me a lot and loves to pet me. Same with the boy in the picture. The other people in the clan call him the Cat Whisperer. I guess this means he likes to whisper in cats ears. So far he hasn't whispered at me, but he is really nice and he let me sleep in his bed. He smiles at me a lot and pets me too. I know we are going to be very good friends. The girl who brought me home is nice too. I've even forgiven her for stuffing me in that tiny cage, putting me in a car and driving me across town. I did NOT like that trip one bit. She's nice though and likes to pet me too.
I hope Mom is right and I get to stay here forever because moving to new places is not fun. The last place I lived was a one bedroom condo. I got here and wow...this place is big! I didn't even know where to start exploring. And there are some doors that are closed...I think they are keeping secrets from me. I want to get into those places so badly...one day, when they let their guard down, I'll figure out how. For now, I'm happy exploring everything else. This morning I woke up my new mom at 3:30 am. I don't think she was too happy about it but I just couldn't resist finding out what was in that cabinet under the sink. She tried to make me lay on the bed with her and dad...but I was too restless for that. I needed to see if I could claw my way into the other closed door in the hallway outside their bedroom. She opened it up so I could see that it's just a closet full of games that I can't play. I did try to get in there, but she wasn't having any of that. I can tell she's not gonna be the fun one in this house.
Right now I'm the only animal that lives here. But I can tell that other cats have lived here before. I've figured out all the places they liked to hang out and I'm keeping an eye on those spots to make sure they don't come back. I also overheard them talking about getting dogs. I'm not very keen on THAT idea. But even if they do, I'll be sure to let everyone know who's boss. I am a cat after all....we rule the world!
I'll be back occasionally to let you know how I'm doing. I think I'm gonna like it here, as long as they let me have my way. I'm pretty sure I already have three of them in my back pocket...now I just gotta win over the new mom. I hear she's tough. We'll see.
