Kozy Kitty of the Day for April 6th

Piper, the Cat of the Day
Name: Piper
Age: One year old
Gender: Female
Kind: Seal Point Siamese
Home: Maryland, USA
Iam Piper and I came to live with Mom, Dad and big brother Goose on January 1, 2011 from the Siamese Cat Rescue Center. I am mostly Siamese except I have one paw that has two white toes. I also have a tiny chirping voice which I rarely use. I really do run the house although I am tiny (at seven pounds), and I am scared of every noise and anything that comes through the front door. I am even afraid of my dad when he comes home from work until he says “Hi Piper!” and then I remember it is Dad. Cameras are another thing I dislike.

I like to fetch my toys so mom will “play throw the toy” for me. She will play until I stop bringing my toys to her. Goose likes to pounce on me but I let him have it. Otherwise, we are good friends. I do funny things like jumping in the air and twisting for no reason except to say “I want to play!” I’m still pretty much a kitten and do not like Mom and Dad to sleep later than 4:30 am. Goose and I insist on being fed then. I’ve taught Goose how to walk on Mom and Dad while they are sleeping if they haven’t gotten up to feed us on time. Goose and I have a pretty good life. We have a view of the Chesapeake Bay which brings in all sorts of birds we watch from the safety of our screened-in porch. In the summer, we love to stay out there all day. My mom and dad are very happy the SCRC brought me to them.

Special Kitty of the Day for February 7th

Popoki, the Cat of the Day
Name: Popoki
Age: Eleven years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Siamese mix
Home: Shell Beach, California, USA
Popoki (Hawaiian for cat) was adopted at two years old (estimated by vet) and has been with us for almost five years. He’s “mostly” a flamepoint Siamese, who loves sightseeing from the window!

Popoki hid from every one for the first four to five weeks after we adopted him. He slowly began moving closer and closer to our common space until he made himself at home. He meows only when hungry or if a neighbor cat comes to his window. He also has an attitude when you aren’t feeding or playing with him on his terms. He turns his back on you, makes short meow sounds, and flicks his tail.

He likes to be in the same room as we are, but not too close (unless it’s his idea) Since our cats are always kept indoors, we have a pet stroller for an occasional outdoor stroll. Poki (as I call him) complains when you put him in the stroller, but seems to really enjoy all the sights and sounds around him. He often does somersaults when playing and literally melts when he gets his (hopefully) daily back massage. He is still afraid of new voices, the doorbell, and the sound of plastic bags, but boy is he friendly and loving when he smells a tuna can being opened!

For the past few weeks, he has decided that sleeping in our bedroom at night is a given, and I honestly think he knows the sound of the clock when it chimes twelve times (which is when he gets tidbit from my husband’s lunch). With age, he is becoming more affectionate as well (yay), and more of a people cat!
