Finally Home Friday with Sylvester


Sylvester here.
Mommy informed me TODAY that it was my turn to tell all of you Ten Things about me.  What a I know what the other Cats have been up to and so busy on the computer.

Gosh, this is exciting!

1.  I am the newest member of the Katnip Lounge. 
I was adopted October 9th, 2010.
My old family left town and left me at the vet's office, where I lived for two years.  It could have been worse I guess; I could have been abandoned and left to fend for myself, and we all know how THAT works out.

2.  Daddy rescued me and he is my Special Purrson. 
Here I am on the lotus tree gazing lovingly at my Daddy.  He is the only one I like to hold me.  I'll allow Mommy a quick cuddle, but I have to moan if it lasts longer than I like.


Grodle = Groan + Yodel
Daddy holds me until I start groaning and moaning; then Daddy jiggles my tummy...and I go:

It's very undignified and it cracks Mommy up every time.  She keeps threatening to get it on video.
We shall see, Mommy, we shall see.

4.  I love the Catio, heat, and sunpuddles.
Unless it's over a hundred degrees, I am OUTSIDE. 

Mommy thinks the heat must feel good on my paws, because: 
5.  I have been declawed.
By the previous People, that is.

6.  My lasers are Top Notch.  Which is good as I love to stare and stare and stare...
It creeps some of the other Cats out!

7.  I am unrepentant about my bread-wrapper licking habit.
Ain't gonna stop for NOBODY!

8.  This is MY tube.  I have to rub my face on it for a long time, every time I see it.  I don't often go inside the tube, (size issues) but I like to hang out with it.

9.  I think Lawns are the best invention, EVER!

10. "Hello, my name is Sylvester, and I am a Nipaholic,"

Excuse me while I assume the Loaf position and enjoy some nippy dreams!

Bonus Fact:

11.  I have a VERY long tail!
Mommy says I'm a big boy.  I am slimmer than when I was adopted, but I have a large frame.  It matches my big heart...I have a bevy of beautiful girlcats that I love! 
 (Ladies, you know who you are, XOXOXO)


Kitties, I'm tired.  All this factuating has worn me out.

Time to hop up in my bed,

and have some sweet dreams in my very own Home.

Happy Friday!

We'll wind up the rest of us Kats next week.
Tomorrow we have a Special Guest!

    ~ Phillip and The Bunch

  23. Sylvester, you are one handsome dude. That is just awful that you were declawed. Makes mom want to toss her cookies when she hears things like that. They should pull the humans finger and toe nails out that did that to you. We loved to hear all about you. Have a great week end.

  24. I vote for a grodling video! SOON!!!

  25. ::purrr::


    I may be little but I'm a bit of a feisty girl and I've got my you know if you ever need me to claw for you...I'm so there!

    I would adore hearing you grodle!

    xoxo Bennette

  26. Sylvester, it was wonderufl to learn about you and man, you landed yerself smack dab in the lap of luxury fer sure~!!! Mom is hoping your mom gets that video of you "Grodeling".

  27. We are glad you love your furever home, Sylvester. You are living a life of luxury now!

  28. We didn't know you were in a cage for two years - that makes us even more happy that you found a good home with your mom, dad and lots of brothers and sisters.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  29. Hi Sylvester! Looks like you have a great home! Tobi also loves to rub his face allllll over his favorite things in the house including my legs. It's so sweet. You have so many fun toys I think I need to buy Tobi some more too to keep him busy!

  30. Sylvester you are pretty boy. The publicist would like to make you growdel

  31. Hooray again for your dad!
    We'd love to hear you grodel, maybe allow them to let us hear it just once???
    Wea are so glad life is good for you Syl. Nip, bread bags, cat tres and way more room than that little cage.

  32. Do you do your grodeling next to that snappy Dylan poster? If so, you're my hero. That's exactly the sound I'm going for when I 'sing' and play guitar.

  33. You really have got it made and found the right forever family! Grodle, cool, maybe I should try that too!

  34. It may have taken 2 years, but you ended up with a VERY awesome new family.....

  35. Oh Sylvester glad you were adopted. WE are also adopted and we're so happy.

    I like the lawn portion, I should tell Mama to make one for us since we don't go outside we don't know about grass and all.

    Emma and Buster

  36. Sylvester, your black paw pads in your white furs are very cute!

    You look great in the lawn!

    We are glad you became a nip lounge cat!!!

  37. Bread wrapper licking is a new one to us! Thank you for coming to our party - you guys won the treats for guessing closest to the number int he jar. We need you mail address so do email us with it so we can get the treat off to you.

  38. What a lovely post Sylvester! I enjoyed hearing all about you. But your previous people should be shot for declawing you and then abandoning you! I'm just very thankful you have such a wonderful home now.

    P.S. to Cats of Wildcat Woods -- many cats have an attraction to plastic bags. Theories abound as to why, but some say it's because rendered animal fat is used in the manufacturing process. Others say it's because of the gelatin and/or petroleum used.

  39. Awww Slyvester we very glad you were dopted and came to live at da Lounge.... ^..^ One of Sunny'z Brofurz was dopted by da V E T cauze he wanted a ginger cat ^..^ he lived at da V E T Z fur awhile cauze efury one luvz him,,, but then went home after while wit da V E T and livez a furry good life ^..^ his name iz Weezer :))) So being at da V E T Z iz no sooooo bad ,,,, we sure efury one luved you and you were well taken care of ........ but living at da Lounge you got da high life bud.... ^..^ dat'z da Best!

  40. Aw, Sylvester you are such a nice boy, and it was great getting to know more about you!! Go on with your bread-wrapper licking self!! :D

  41. Hi there!
    I'm one of the new visitors!
    Totally addicted to learning more and more stuff about all of the cats... I also would love seeing that Grodle video!
    I have 2 cats (a neutered boy and a neutered girl) that I rescued from the vet's office, just like Sylvester's case. I don't have a blog though. I just like to see other people's blogs! LOL

    Hugs all the way from Brazil,

  42. Sylvester we well remember the first day of the rest of your were indeed one lucky kitty to have a temporary home at the Vets and to be found by Dad.

    We love the action shot of you heading to the couch.

    Mom and Dad had 4 75' pine trees cut down today and watched it all....I hid under the bed.
    Hugs Madi

  43. Sylvester, Baby has the same fascination with licking plastic wrappers and bags! And she loves to rub her face on lots of stuff, even hard edges. Thanks for telling us stuff all about you.

  44. Please, please, please get the Grodel on video!!!!!!

  45. Great list, Sylvester! We well remember your arrival and are so happy that you are well settled into the Lounge!

    The Chans

  46. Mr. Sylvester, With your bread-wrapper licking habit, I think you are able to make a special breakfast for your pawrents ! You may use your tongue to spread the butter on the bread !....heh..heh

    I hope your mommy don't do a hard tapping on my head when she read this : ) ..heh..heh..Love You

  47. Oh, Sylvester, I am so glad that you got adopted after two years at the v-e-t and came to live at the Lounge! I know you are happy to be there and that they are happy you are there too! I would love to hear you grodel.

  51. Hi Sylvester! We want to hear you Grodle! So let your mom video you, okay??

  52. Oh Sylvester we're so happy you found a good forever home finally. Declawed and dumped; you poor thing. Now's the time to lounge and have a little extra nip :-)

    Your friend, Zoe

  55. Those are very interesting things about you! I am so glad that you got found by your daddy!

    I am sorry you are declawed.Isn't it terrible when humans de-claw us? Years ago mom owned a kitty who was declawed! It was sad watching her trying to sharpen her claws!

  56. We are very, very intrigued by your grodle.

  57. We are so glad that you now live at Katnip Lounge with theese folks who love you so! Way to go! PS: I loves to stare too!

  60. SO happy you found your awesome home!

  61. Sylvester at a Nipaholics meeting . . . love it!

    So glad you got to move into the Katnip Lounge Sylvester, 2 years is such a long time to wait for your fur-ever home.

    Im sorry your previous people took away your claws, Im sure that would have been very sore for you xx

    Hugs and snuggles

  62. Being declawed must have been horrible for you Sylvester. Waiting 2 years for your Forever Home was not good either, but now you are a Lounge Kitty you certainly hit the jackpot at last.

  63. Sylvester we are so glad yoo adopted yoor noo fambly! Yoo picked reall good! Smoochies.


Oh Boy...this is gonna be GREAT!
