Snowball's World


Snowball the Cat

Hi, I'm Snowball the Cat. I just recently moved into Mark's apartment. Mark found me at a local pet store in Beijing, China. We have been hanging out since Friday, December 8th, 2006. The first couple of days I felt a little nervous living with a big scary guy like Mark. But now, I am used to living here and all of his quirks. So I just do as I please, chewing on anything and jumping on anything in the apartment.

My favorite things include a little cat stand that I can stratch my claws on. There is a small barrel at the top of the stand with a little bird thing on the inside. That bird thing makes me feel so excited and just go bananas trying to get to it, its so intriguing. I could spend hours on that stand scratching it and trying to get that bird.

The other day Mark took me to the pet store to get cleaned and get my shot.When they tried to clean me , it took two people to hold me down, but I still almost escaped. They use this terrible, evil thing called water. Water is for drinking not for touching or being in. Water should be outlawed as torture. I think its completely inhumane of people to make me suffer by using water to clean me. Matter of fact, they shouldn't even try it because I will fight them every step of the way.

When I am not chewing on everything in the house, I enjoy laying around. Of course there there is always the floor. But I prefer Mark's computer the most. It's usually on and gives off some heat, so I like be near it, even if Mark can't use it to type on. I also like looking at the screen, there is something called a "mouse" that moves around and it really gets my attention. Sometimes I even try to scratch the scree, and Mark freaks out about it. That goofy guy, he gets so easily bent out of shape with my antics.

Recently, in the spirit of the Beijing Olympics, I have been learning how to jump up on everything in the apartment. I can get on the bed and the table and desk, no problem. Nowadays, I can even jump to the top of the TV and then from there, get on to the refridgerator. I even knocked over a jug of water off the fridge onto the floor the other day. But Mark, he didn't get angry, he simply acknowledged my improved leaping ability.

Mark sometimes buys me toys to play with. But it's really hit or miss if I will like them or not. Mark even bought me this little house like thing for me to sleep in. It's made just for my size, very cute and soft and cozy just like I like. But I will never go inside it. I prefer to use Mark's desk, or even better, I try to get into the bathroom and sleep under the toilet. Mark really appreciates that, because after sleeping under the toilet, I like to jump into Mark's bed and cozy upto to him. I couldn't possibly be dirty or smelly, could I?
