me and Bobby D.

me (on left) eddy f. chevalier and on right is Bobby D. Chedwick who is currently my very best friend. We are watching the Christmas tree being decorated.  this is my first Christmas. Bob has already gotten into the tree and climbed up the trunk a few times. i saw that's how it was supposed to be, so i tried but the tree has poking needles and i give up.

i am misunderstood

see how calm i am? i am thinking why did the other cats all just run away from me? why do they not like my offerings of bitey and wrestle? why do they scream and tell me my claws are like fishhooks? what does it all mean? it means they misunderstand, they crazy.  i am calm. i'm not going to change at all ~ i'm going to make them like playing with me.

Hot Dog! Wish i had a Million Dollars!

if i had a million dollars i'd have six of these cat towers, a human to bring food to me so i don't have to eat in the kitchen, and a lot more cat toys and a big sun porch addition with more cat towers and beds and overstuffed fluffy chairs and a big screen hi def tv with non stop films of nice birds ( not Hitchcock) and a big aquarium full of fish and lots of sofas and carpets and catnip plants and those glass prism things hanging around sparkling lights on the wall--i'd want a bunch of those and every so often a small mouse would run through the room... or a centipede. and my veterinarian would always make house calls--he'd be on my turf  and just check in on me every week!  yeah i wish i had a million dollars! or maybe three million dollars! what would you cats do with a million or so dollars?

i have grown

much to the dismay of my brother Bobby D. Chedwick, (turning to look at me in this photo) i have grown to be his size now. i have always loved wrestling with him and he always gave in, even when i was small because i am feisty and he is very very mellow. he has to be careful, and watch his back, because i love to pounce on him when he least expects it. he will not grow any bigger but i will, and he will be   the little guy   again. will i ever stop pouncing on him? it's such great fun i wonder why he dislikes it so much. he might be way too mellow. 

 eddy chevalier, not the little guy anymore.

you woke me up

i see you, you woke me up.

i'm still tired, but now i'm up.
i'm still really tired but i like attention so i don't mind that you woke me at all.

i like to play

hide & seek with Dennis

Tuesday, October 14, 2008

i'm taking a break

i'm going to relax away from the computer for a few weeks. i love you all and will visit your blogs when i come back. i love my new handknit blankets.

i am back!

i survived my operation! it was a harrowing experience, but the pretty nurses at the cat hospital were very sweet and loving.

when i recovered,  i sent text messages out to Dennis and Chedwick to let them know i was okay. 

when i got home they rushed to the cat carrier and were nice to me. Dennis got in the carrier right away, so he could pretend he was going to the cat hospital.  then we all had a nice luncheon.

it is good to be back home.

i got a new balloon

i got a new balloon it is black with a skull and crossbones--a pirate balloon.

same old problem -- Dennis wants to chew up the ribbon and bite a hole in the balloon.

supercat to the rescue! I will swoop in, grab my balloon and run away before Dennis can react.

what what what ???

today i have been with my family for ninety days and am no longer a tiny kitten. i am cannot avoid the dreaded  "surgical procedure." you may recall that i do not much care for going to the 
doctor, or even riding in the car. i heard that an appointment is going to be made tomorrow!

i'm hanging out everywhere.

i was annoying

i've been going through this annoying phase. no one can groom me or get a good photograph of me. i run at full speed and jump onto humans and cats. Ched has given up, but Dennis is still trying to groom me.

another milestone

after trying many times and failing many times, i finally jumped up on top of the refrigerator today. i enjoyed the view and then cried for someone to help me down.  before anyone could help, i decided to just go for it and got down all by myself.

i feel a great sense of achievement.

now and then

as you can see i am growing like a weed in just two and a half months. i'm nearly as big as Chedwick and Doctor Kasman says i'm going to grow at least as large as Dennis. maybe bigger, who knows? 

things that have changed: i can finally jump up on the counter top (sometimes i still crash and fall, but i'm getting better at it.) and i know my name is eddy. (i learned it in august.) i bite quite a bit less than i used to, too. 

things that have not changed: i am still as loving as ever, love all humans and enjoy a good long snuggle  & still love to wrestle big cats. i still run to the door to see who it is. i still cry when i want food. i still play with the remote control a lot and turn the TV off and on and change channels. i still like popcorn.

i do it my way

Chedwick likes to sit on top of the cat carrier, and i love to start wrestling, so this is what happens 25 times a day. Chedwick is very patient.
a lot of people think Chedwick and Dennis fight with me, but it's only play-fighting or them just fed up with me doing things like what is shown in this movie all day long. at night we cuddle up and basically sleep in a pile. we all groom each other everyday.

another day, another adventure

first i grab Dennis' head, and then i kick his head with my feet. it's brilliant until he does exactly the same thing to me, then i have to come up with a new strategy. (like getting away and leaving the room for awhile.) 

remember my balloon? my balloon was destroyed by Dennis. (long story, i cried, i don't want to write about it.) i helped my mom tidy some drawers and played very nicely with Chedwick. ignored Dennis.

my balloon is special

earlier, someone suggested this as a fun thing for cats (i think it was Lori in Texas) anyway, i got one the other day and it really is super fun!!!! i have been playing with it non-stop. i love to pull it all around the house and the humans say things like aww, look at him run with his balloon and he looks so happy. 

i grab the ribbon and run like crazy through the house. the other cats just stare at me.

sad sometimes

i'm sad for two reasons today. Mercurie's cat Precious has passed away (see her story here.)


my friend Jack, who is a neighbor's cat, is very sick and old. Jack has been through so much at the cat hospital this last year or two. he's skin and bones but still very loving and cheerful. because he is so weak, and in pain, his vet may be making a house call soon. Jack is and always was a people cat. very friendly.

so you see i am sad today. but it's okay to feel this way sometimes.

yawn and dance

caught in a big big yawn

dancing around the room

Sunday, August 31, 2008

this is the way things is

we cats are always harping on the importance of sleep, but few humans ever really listen to us. you should listen because things go better when you're well rested.

days gone by

sigh... i have to wait around for computer time now that my humans are away from the house a lot more.

these days are gone forever, since i have gotten bigger. i now weigh 4 pounds.

i still jump on Chedwick and Dennis but they are less and less interested in wrestling with me. 
they see me coming and run and hide. can you see the desperation in Chedwick's eyes? too many wrestling matches is why he looks like that. still i can't stop myself.

i did not do well at the vet

oh i look calm in this picture but this is after i shrieked and howled and hissed and growled and struggled and bit and clawed and threw up (twice) and foamed at the mouth, and then pooed. i hope i do better next time, but i don't have a lot of confidence that i will. The doctor and nurse just laughed because believe it or not, they have seen cats who act much worse!

freeze frame

since i couldn't upload a video today (i tried four times, i need a nap) i am posting this frame of the video. i'll try to post it over the weekend.

do you have a desk eddy?

a desk eddy: 
someone who clears off your desk by throwing everything on the floor and then goes inside a desk cubby for a nap.

been really reaally busy

sorry for not posting every day, but i have a brutal napping and running and jumping schedule.
i don't nap so much as pass out. and i've added an extra project of organizing all the old lost toys i am finding around the house. i put them all in my basket. after i'm done i want to get out and visit some blogs.

Sunday, August 17, 2008

i have lots of toys

i have so many toys. i just found them stuck in heating vents and behind bookshelves. i wonder why they were hidden! i found this springy thing, a butterfly with a hole in it,  and a dusty old mousie with an orange tail.

i try to get small

i still think i can fit into places i fit into last month, but sometimes i get stuck.

let a smile... etc...

been rainin' ever since i was born...

compare, mon frere!

Tut Tut mentioned that it looked like i was growing. since Tut Tut has seen me live and in person, i have to say, she is right! we used the highly scientific colander measurement data test to see how much i have grown. today i occupy 43.7% more of the space inside the colander than i did when Tut Tut was visiting. (it appears to be more only because the second photo is more of a close-up and is taken from a different angle.)

Wine Cork Hockey

Developed by Dennis in the year 2000 after a visit to Napa Valley, wine cork hockey is played in any bathtub rink and points are scored when the wine cork hits the drain plate when hit from the backrest of the rink. Eddy was introduced to the sport yesterday, and is already a keen player.
