This friends page has been such a hit that I needed to add another page to it. Im glad to see that there are so many Yuscies (Young Urban Sophisti-Cats) out there!
My BMC and BFC often visit the neighborhood record store for CDs. Theyve made friends with Kitty who lives there. While my BMC is searching the bins, my BFC sits on the floor giving Kitty chin rubs. He looks like a pretty cool dude. I hear he gets special treats every night just before the store closes. Ive been trying to urge Blondie to go visit him, since she likes my BMCs guitar noise.
K.C. is 16½ years old and loves to lay in the sunshine in the backyard, or under the shade from a tree.
When K.C. wants to go inside, this cool kitty knows all the cute expression buttons to push.
K.C. writes: I am not what people say photogenic. I beg to differwe are all beautiful!
Born on April Fools' Day, this handsome 12 year old kitty says he was brought up in a Spartan lifestyle with his BMC when he was a youngster.
When he was a year old his BFC came along and things changed dramatically. He has lived a life of ever increasing luxury and excess since then. Oooeee! He sounds like a real Yuscie to me!
Penny, Pippa and Sasha
Penny is a lovely three-year
old. When she was very young, she would supervise her BMC working in his office
from the wonderful vantage point of his shoulders. Now at 12 pounds, its
a little trickier...
Pippa (left) is Henny Penny's aunt and Sasha's sister. She loves rolling around the deck and being brushed100 strokes minimum!
Henny, Pippa and Sasha live on an islandwowie-zowie!
Domino, Sasha and Shenannigans
Oreo sure is a handsome dude with a goatee! He lives with his natural brother and sister (Domino and Sasha) and his adopted sister (Shenannigans).
Oreo loves lettuce...and loves nothing better than to just tear a whole head of it apart. In fact, his favorite treats are lettuce and shrimp!
According to Oreo, his brother Domino (right) has a sloppy kind of tuxedo. I think hes got character as hes seen here begging for a handout.
is 12 years old and has been living in high society his whole life. He says hes
one of the most sophisticated cats in his city! He pays meticulous attention to
his shiny coatyou always want to look good when you wear a tux all the time!
Tux says he knows how to get what he wants when he wants it and is very persistent. Hes definitely in charge of his household. Sure sounds like hes a master of Yuscie-ness!
Mittens, Cookie and Stormy
Slash is my real good buddy from California. We look a lot alike so we have a lot to email each other abouthe got his name because of his blaze! Slash loves hanging out on a trampoline in the yard, but when the California sunshine gets intense, he retreats to the shade underneath. His Big Cat calls the trampoline Slash's cabana! Thats the life!
This is Madame Mittens, who rules the house with an iron claw. She reads Simone de Beauvoir (never heard of her but she sure does have a cool name) and she memorizes poems by Keats (whoever he is). She calls Slash the backyard bum and Slash just loves her...NOT!
These guys are Stormy and Cookie who used to live in Slash's backyard. Slash calls Cookie, the black and white dude, his uncle, but hes probably Slashs cousin.
Slash just sent me a new picture of himself in his backyard with his weights! We Tuxes know that looking good takes a lot of work...but it's worth it.
Here are my new friends in Australia! (Hobbes on the lefthes a little bigger than Morgan.) They are brothers and are British shorthairs. According to their email, they like to eat, sleep, play with ping-pong balls, hide in boxes, and sit on books.
They enjoy watching Wimbledon tennis on TVjust started getting into it myself. Sorry Pat Rafter lost 2001it was pretty exciting!
Hobbes and Morgan consider themselves white tuxedo kitties. Elegant Yuscies, without a doubt! But how do you keep all that white so clean? Whew!!
Put another mouse on the barbie for me, mates!
My Big Cats had the pleasure of meeting Moose the dog star of NBCs Frasier. He was in a Chicago bookstore autographing his book! They came back saying how intelligent and gracious he was.
I guess hes okay...for a dog...he reminds me of my friend Gizmo, who lives downstairs. Hes a Jack Russell Terrier too.
Jessie lives next door to us and even though weve never met, shes a neat and pretty lady. I watch her from our front windows. When she sees my Big Cats, she wags her tail and lays down on her back so my BFC can rub her belly. Oooooo, belly rubs are so good!
In her note, Jessie says her favorite things are eating, playing with other dogs, and playing with people. Her favorite toys are Mr. Lion and Madison ManI can relate to the eating and toys!
Jessie, you are one hot Yuspie (Young Urban Sophisti-Pup)!
Opus, Braveheart, Dinsdale
Opus is a stray who adopted her BMC about two years ago. She was named for Opus, the penguin from the comics. She lives outside all the time, but the BMC feeds her and makes a special box bed for her with a blanket for the winter. Opus feels so comfortable with the situation that shes had two litters in the backyard.
These are Opus kittens, born the first week of April, 2001. Thats Braveheart on the left and Dinsdale on the right. Braveheart was the first kitten to venture out from Opuss care. Dinsdale was named after a Monty Python character.
What lucky kitties to have such a nice BMC!
Tally and Samoa Sammy
Tally sure is a handsome guy with a really cool raccoon-like tail! And hes quite talented, too, as he has learned to play his BMCs guitar by plucking the strings with his teethwow!
Sammy got her name because shes the same color as a Girl Scout cookie called Samoa! Before she got adopted, her name at the kennel was Pepsisometimes I just dont understand where Big Cats come up with our names!
Tally likes to chase foil balls, catch ladybugs, jump real high and do flips to catch his fishing toy, and attack toes under blankets. All admirable exercises for kitty aerobics!
Tally and Sammy live by a lake and they get to watch lots of ducks, birds, and wildlife from the comfort of their window perch. What a life!
Stixies one smart lady. Her Big Female Cat found her in a woodpile when she was just four weeks old. Her Big Male Cat wanted to keep her in the family and eventually the Big Female Cat relented. Im sure Stixie was a charmer even at that young age!
Stixie has two sistersCairne Terriers. One of her sisters looked after Stixie when she was real small and saved Stixie from being eaten by a raven! Wowie-zowieglad I live in Chicago where we just have pigeons!
Stixies been earning her Yuscie stripes for the past three years while getting her family trained quite well. In the summer, her Big Cats plant a sage herb garden that she gets to roll around in...when she gets tired of exploring her rock garden!
Ive been corresponding with Stixie Rose for a while when she asked for an autographed picture of moi! Needless to say, I complied...but only after I secured her promise to send her photos. I must say I was smitten when I saw this photo...my favorite sleeping position, too!
IOut of the blue, I received this great email from a lady Tux named Grasshopper. She tells us that her BFC is currently working on her web site. We can't wait to see more of her...
Grasshopper says that she will be sixteen years old. She's still one Hot Babe! Paws off cats! I saw her first.
