Obi's True Confessions

Suzanne tagged me to do the true confessions meme.

When Maw holds me in her arms, I moan and groan like an old man. I also moan and groan when Maw is cleaning my ears or my eyes.

Sometimes, I eat my stinky goodness so fast that I yack it right back up. Like this morning.

I luf to lay on Maw's lap, and if Dorf or G.T. try to get up there when I'm there, I smack them upside the head. Or if I jump up on Maw's lap and G.T. or Dorf are already there, I smack them upside the head.

I can be a teensy bit clutzy with my big paws and tail. I kinda knock things over without realizing it.

I luf to stick my paw in the water that Maw keeps in the bathroom sinks for us to drink. I lick the water off my paw. And sometimes I shake it and it goes all over the mirror!!!

My armpits get tangled if I don't let Maw comb them. If they get tangled, Maw uses cuticle scissors to snip the mats out, then my pits are bald!!!

When I first came here to live, I didn't know how to leap or climb cat trees. It took me several months to strengthen up my muscles so that I could be a real cat. That was kinda embarrassing. But it wasn't my fault. I didn't ask to live in a garage in a cage for my first nine months!!!

It's also kinda embarrassing that I dribble when I get off the pot. It's not my fault though. I don't have the parts anymore to close off that valve. They got taken away from me at the North Texas Veterinary Referral Center.

Ok, I'm done with confessing stuff. That was embarrassing. My furs are red now.

Nothing to be embarrassed about, Obi One-Big-Cat-Fluffy-Poodin!
I think it is wonderful that your Maw & Paw have given you such a nice life, and we all have our little things that embarrass us!

Kaze, Latte, & Chase said...

Don't be embarassed, we all have our secrets and they are best to share with friends.

Obi, no need to be embarrassed. It's sad that you had such a rough early life, but wonderful that you have such a great Forever Home now. Thanks for sharing your secrets.

That is very manly to give a smack to a cat that wants to be on your Maw's lap. I hiss then run away.

Parker said...

Aw, Obi, don't be embarrased! You are very handsome, even with bald pits!

Around Your Wrist said...

that's a great picture of you, obi!

you did a good job of sharing your secrets. i promise i won't ever hold them against you! and i'm really glad you have your maw and paw to help make your life good. (i think tiny manicure scissors were made for kitty parts)

i get mad when i think about you living in a cage in a garage--for nine whole months! that's just wrong.


Lux said...

Oh, Obi, you're such a sweetheart! Don't be embarrassed about anything!

Zoey and the furballs said...

We agree that there's nothing to be embarrassed about. We think it's very adorable and manly.

Pearl C. Pritchard said...

No reason to be embarrassed...cuz we all have fings that we do dat is a little different.

Very good job sharing. There is no need to be embarrassed. That is what confessing is about, getting it out there and saying, hey, love all of me and we do!
