Pluma meows a naming story

Hi furiends, so I said I would meow you the facts of my naming.

It all began on a cold January day three years ago.  Mom had just lost her cat ‘Yucky’ and was very sad to have no cat.  Mommys friend called and said “I just saw picture of beautiful kitten who needs a home, here is phone number.”

So after phone calls and meetings arrange Mom and Dad drive to see me.  Course i was so cute Mom needed me right away.  Turns out I was found as tiny baby along the Rio Grande River with no momma cat and lots of meowy crying cause I was hungry, cold and scared. (Don’t tell everyone but I am still scared to be home alone, or anywhere alone.  Even at work I stay in same room as Mom. Always)

So Mom and Dad take me to their home, with food and warm and loves!  I am not scared as long as I can see them, but if pawrents go in other room I start crying again.  So my Mom, she just carry me with her every room she go to.  I am not scared again.

My furs is all white and because I was so scared when lost and homeless I lost many furs. My skin is pink, pink, pink.  So Mom calls me Pinky Boy.  It’s a good thing I am deaf because if I hada heard that name I mighta run away!  Maybe scared isn’t as awful as that name.  Mom noticed I wouldn’t come to her if she called me that horrid name  so she figures I don’t like it thinks about changing it.  (humans is so funny, she didn’t even know I was deaf then!)

Next she calls me “squeak”  Now I ask you, what kinda name is that for a beautiful and handsome all white soon to grow up into a manly man cat?  Humans think strangely.  She calls me squeak because I couldn’t meow.  Don’t laugh, If youse was deaf and had never heard talkin’ how good would you talk?  So what if I squeaked, at least I was trying to communicate.

Naturally I didn’t answer to that name either.  It was some time after the adoption of that  disrespectful name that my pawrents figured out (dah) that I couldn’t hear them.  And it was only after one or two other equally stupid names that my Dad listened in his mind and heard my real name.  PlumaBlanca, WhiteFeather, on account of my magnificent tail, a truly rare fantastically plumed all white long-haired feathery tail.  Now I still couldn’t hear them flapping their lips at me but I had mastered lip-reading by then and happy to hear my real true name I ran to Mom when ever she flapped the name at me.  So that became my name, ( well, it was always my real name, it just took the humans a long time to figure it out.)

So thats the story of how I have my Forever Home and my Forever Name.  Another time I will tells you the story of how I became a working cat, learned sign language, purrfected my meows and finnaly trained my  human peoples to do things the way I like them.

Have a purry nice day, your friend Pluma

It’s cold in the desert!

Haven’t posted in a while because we had the dreaded ‘computer problems’. All fixed now and no excuses about posting, well, except for the winter storm that gave us 4-5 inches of snow, not so bad, and temperatures way below what we always have…got down to 0 degrees at night, a wonderful high of 19 degrees yesterday. Broke all kinds of weather records. el Paso electric, not able to generate their own power, has had to buy power from other states and Mexico (who now say they can’t sell anymore power because they need it for their own use) so rolling blackouts are rolling along. We have had outages at the store and were closed for the last 2 days but are open today…at least for now and for as long as we have power. It would be a good idea to call before coming to the store. 993-9797.

Pluma is not a happy cat at the moment, you know he was an abandoned kitten in the winter and has real issues with cold weather, he has been at home either in a lap or on the electric blanked, had another ear problem. He sure hates ear drops even thou they help him. He will be at the store as soon as it warms up a bit. When i left home this morning it was 9 degrees and I just can’t take him out in that cold. Will update again as we hope to warm up.
