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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.)

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'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.

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

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!

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.

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.)

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.
