Whiskers on Wednesday

This is my kitteh Spunky. He was born 8 days before my hubby Doug and I were married making his birthday August 20, 1998. He is officially an ole man kitteh. He is also a bit psychotic which started after we moved to Georgia and returned to Maryland for Christmas vacation. He stood at the top of the stairs and hissed and spit at my neighbor who was trying to feed him while I was away. He has never been the same since. He has been declawed so he hits now and is very strong. He also bites. After reading the Spotlight on Ace I feel much better about my boy. Spunky has had that 'habit' of taking our clothes and dragging them through the house whenever we would go somewhere (even if that somewhere was to the mailbox at the end of the driveway). My parents laughed when they came to visit because every time we returned from going out touristing we would come home to some article of mine (often unmentionables) laying in the hallway downstairs (my room is upstairs). Since we have gotten the puppies (they are 5 yrs old now) Spunky tends to limit his pining to the master bathroom. He also goes on kitteh vacation to the vets with the dogs when we go away and seems to do much better when we get back home. :)

darling cat - our kitteh is an old lady, and stays in our spare bedroom most of the time. She tolerates the dogs. My sister-in-law had a declawed cat, and she could hit strong and fast too!
