About Me

Active within 1964 Days

Hi! My name is Rusty

I am Domestic Shorthair from Moberly, MO

Nicknames: Rustakitty, Thunderfoot, Sir Tail-a-lot

Age: 16 years old

Gender: M

Coat: short haired

Education: He is the most loving and cuddly cat. His fur feels like silk and it is a joy to cuddle with him.

My favorite tricks and treats are: He is very tall and you have to be careful not to put things close to the edge of the counter. He also chases his tail at times. and Greenies

Where I hang out: In the wardrobe where I keep my spare comfortors. In a box that I have lined with a sheepskin

My favorite grubs: Rusty likes the Indoor all natural Purina dry food.

My pet peeves: My owner won't let me eat her yarn when she is trying to knit. She will even pick me up from the couch and put me on the floor if I insist on playing with the yarn.

What I love about my owners: She lets me sit on her lap a lot and will hold me when it storms outside. She also gives me a 'treat' food that my brother doesn't get; he is still on a diet.

My cat hobbies: Play on the stairs and through toys up the stairs and then chase them. I also like to eat any plant that happens to resemble grass.

Hi Rusty
What a big surprise I got last night when Mommy came home from work, she said it had warmed up a lot outside and that I could go out front with her. Well, I did and not just once but three times. When the sun went down it got a little chilly and Mom wouldn't take me out anymore so we stayed inside and watched TV and Mom read her mystery book. All in all it was a great evening hope I can go outside again tonight, I will wait and see. Hope you are having a great day. Here is a vote for you with catnip sprinkles. Your furiend, Maggie

Hi Rusty
It is still chilly here and everyone is complaining about it. We all wonder "WHERE IS SPRING". Well we do know one thing all the little critter are out and about, this morning Mom wanted to get something out of the Jeep and here he or she was, a SKUNK, tearing up our neighbors garbage. What a mess that skunk made. I have been seeing lots of little critters from our patio door, yesterday I saw a bunny. Do you think that's the bunny my Mom keeps talking about that is coming this Sunday? I know one thing Mom has been bringing in lots of bags from Petco and rushing to the bedroom and putting them in the closet. Do you think they are for me???? I hope so, hehhehheh. Time will tell I will let you know next Monday. Hope you are having a wonderful day. Here is a vote for you with catnip sprinkles. Your furiend, Maggie

Hi Rusty
I'm just taking a catnap and waiting for the rain to start. It is suppose to rain for days, oh well no outside time for me the rest of the week. Last night Mom took me outside but that little dog was out there too and she comes over to my front sidewalk and barks at me. Can you imagine the nerve so I hissed at her and Mom picked me up just before I jumped her. How embarrassing!!!! Mom shouldn't make such a fuss over her either, I must have a talk with her. Hope you have a nice day today, leaving you a vote with catnip sprinkles. Your furiend, Maggie "CATS RULE"

Hi Rusty
How are you my furiend? What a nice day it is today, a little windy but warming up nice. Last night Mom came home feed me and then went out back and proceeded to empty a hugh clay pot of all the rich soil that was in it and put it in the garden. She then put the broken big pot in a strong box for the garbage man this morning. Well does she hurt today, all that bending and lifting her back and knees all hurt her today. She is not the girl she used to be by any means, she was able to dig in the garden and plant and weed all day and just be a little sore the next day but not anymore. Later I will give her some purr therapy and that should make everything better. Hope you are having a great day, here is a vote for you with catnip sprinkles. Your furiend, Maggie

Hi Rusty
It is a rainy gloomy day tonight a great day for kitty naps, not that I need an excuse, hehhehheh. Last night while Mom was on CC I came in the room and played with the computer wires, she did not see me, but I pulled out the monitor wire and the computer went down. I want her to cuddle with me and not be on the computer all the time. I think she got the message because she fixed it and then shutdown for the night. Good thing I had some other tricks up my paw!!!! Hope you are having a great day and getting all the kitty naps you need. Here is a vote for you with catnip sprinkles. Your furiend, Maggie

Hi Rusty
What a rainy gloomy day it is today. It is just like night time outside so I guess I will just catnap all day until Mommy comes home. Haven't had anymore time outside because after the beautiful weekend we had it got cold again but I will not lose heart spring is really just around the corner. When I was out last weekend I saw the flowers peeking through the ground. That made Mommy very happy, she loves her flowers. Pretty soon we will be planting, I will supervise, and the garden will come to life again. Hope you have a great day today no matter what the weather is. Here is a vote with catnip sprinkles to cheer your day. Your furiend, Maggie

Well the weekend is just a memory and Monday rolled around again. I am chilling out on the bed and cuddled between the pillows. I will wait for Mom to come home and maybe, if the rain has stopped, I can go outside again. I heard her say it was going to get cold again so there goes my outside time. Hope you are having a great day. I'm leaving you a vote with catnip sprinkles. Your furiend, Maggie

Hi Rusty
I'm all excited Mommy worked only half a day today because the repairman was coming to fix our washing machine. I had Mom all to myself this afternoon. It is getting warmer and if the weatherman is right it will be near 60 degress tomorrow. Mom said she is going to open all the windows and air the house out and I get to go outside if it is really warm enough. Mom promised she will take me outside with her because I do not go outside alone. That's O.K. with me as long as I get to go out. It has been a long hard winter and we are really looking forward to spring and planting in the garden. I supervise Mom and she appreciates it, she told me so. Hope you have a great evening.

Hi Rusty
Where is spring???? No sooner did we get all the snow off the ground and now we have new piles of fresh snow everywhere. It is so cold with the wind chill factor it is down below zero and only going to 10 degrees today. We are going to have this snow all week but the weekend the temps are going to 50 we better get the boat ready because we are going to see a lot of melting and flooding. Mom and Aunt Theresa went to work and now I am alone for the first time in over a week. I guess I will just cuddle in the pillows and take kitty naps all day until they come back home again. Hope you are having a great day, stay warm and safe. Leaving you a vote with catnip sprinkles. Your furiend, Maggie

Hi Rusty and Nova
Well the snow storm didn't go out to sea as we all had hoped it would. Mom woke up this morning looked out the window and went back to bed. It is still snowing and it is almost 5:00 P.M. and the wind is blowing and it is bitter cold outside. Mom and Aunt Theresa said they can't believe it this is the biggest snow storm all season and it had to happen now on March 2nd. Mom said she has gone throught snow and ice all winter and she wasn't going throught this one with 35 mph winds and 9 inches of snow so here we all are watching TV and hanging out. I think it's great but they are bored already they sure won't make good cat's now would they!!!! Leaving you a snowy vote with catnip sprinkles. Your furiend, Maggie

Hi Rusty
Boy is it cold here in Connecticut today and windy too. You would think winter would give up but no. Why is winter the longest season? Is it because we are stuck in the house all the time or that it is so cold, snowy, icey and wet that no one likes it. You Think!!!! We can hardly wait for spring, I think I have said that before it needs to be repeated don't you think. Nothing much else going on around here, what a let down after the great Mardi Gras party that Wolfie and his Mom had for all of CC yesterday afternoon. I'm still in Mardi Gras mode, Mom is still playing the music and it is a toe tapper. Oh by the way, Mom is home this afternoon she had to wait for the repairman for her LG washer, it looks like she needs a motor board. The spinning is off time, it maybe under warranty, hope so. It doesn't matter it has to be fixed we need our washer/dryer and it isn't that old either. Mom believes it has never really work right from the very beginning. Let's see what happens. Leaving you a vote with a wish for a good evening and catnip sprinkles. Your furiend, Maggie

Hi Rusty
Well winter is back and in full force, we woke up this morning to the sound of wind and stepped outside and it was COLD. I will just wait for Mommy and Aunt Theresa to get home tonight and try not to get into any trouble, hehhehheh. Mommy stepped on one of my plastic small balls last night and almost went flying she was not happy. She said I have to learn to put things away or at least out of the places where we walk. I don't know they expect soooo much of me I'm just a little kitty trying to amuse myself while they are gone. RIGHT!!!!Well it's time for my morning catnap which goes into my afternoon catnap, I want to be refreshed so I can play with Mom when she gets home. Hope you have a great day now and remember it's Friday and our pawparents will be home this weekend. Here's a vote for you with catnip sprinkles, Your furiend Maggie

Hi Rusty
Another weekend gone and a new week starting. Monday's are so hard for me because I was used to all the attention on the weekend and now everyone is gone to work and I am alone. I will catnap, nibble and play with some of my toys. I have this new kitty playmat that was given to me by Wolfie, my sweetheart, and Mom Linda. It is great it has all sorts of things on it, crinkle paper, a scratch mat part, a tent with a dangling fish and some fish on the mat with feathers. It is so neat I don't know what to play with first. Mom never knows if I will like a toy or not but this one I like. I will go and hide in my tent now, not that anyone is home to find me but it's still fun. Hope you are having a fun day too. Here is a vote with some catnip sprinkles. Your furiend, Maggie

HEY BUDDY! HAPPY BELATED VALENTINE"S DAY! -

Hope you got a lot of hugs and affection.. I sure did.. In between Mom and Dad going out for brunch and watching a movie together on TV, they found time to give yours truly plenty of treats and a lot of hugs and kisses.

How are you today? Hope you are having a great day. It is a very warm morning but it is suppose to turn cold again by this evening. The wind is howling and expected to go to 50 mph. Imagine that!!! Hope we don't lose power that freaks my Mom out and then we just sit around reading, if there's enough light and cuddling. I like it but Mom and Aunt Theresa would rather watch that funny box they call TV. I will just catnap all day and rearrange my kitty toys. Mom saw me with my mouse last night and then I threw it into the bathroom and just walked away. She told me I better put things back where I found them, hehhehheh!!! Have a great day.

Hey Rusty!
THanks for asking about Mr. Feather. That scoundrel is never to be found when I want to whack him. I have not stopped looking for another mouse. It has been a week since I found my mouse and Mr. Feather is a poor substitute for the little fella. Don't worry, he knows it...which is probably why he is not to be found at the moment. He is trying to think of some new tricks.. It doesn't matter. Whatever he does..I will whack him!!! (hee.hee.hee.) Hope you and Nova are both having a great evening.

Nice to meet you too. Just to let you know some of the pictures at the bottom of my page are my boyfriend, Wolfie, I'm the one in pink crown and coat. We look very much alike because we are both Blue Persians but he has green eyes and I have amber eyes. Do you know Wolfie? He is a great guy and the love of my life. Is it cold where you live?

Hey Rusty ole Buddy!
I am glad you are able to get on the computer. I think I am off my diet now, because Mom bought some new flavor and brands for me to try. Actually, what Mom does not know is that she was the unwitting victim of my carefully planned strategy to get off my diet. The plan went something like this: Mom puts my food down in the morning when she wakes up.. Instead of eating it hungrily like I did before, I started to just look at it with disdain. Mom, unaware of my plan, began to worry that something was wrong..Dad started to give me some of his salmon or whatever he was eating. I ate it with relish. But still, I did not do more than nibble at my food. Mom and Dad now have all different types of food in an effort to see what I will eat. I can onl say this Rusty..I am eating like a KING!!! (oops..not too loud..can't let on what a sneaky puss I am (tee.hee.hee.) I am sure the holidays will be a time of feasting and fun for me.. that is...unless... well..can't think of how I wouldn't be feasting...Hope you are going to be feasting too. Now that " the boss" is home, I bet you will have lots of fun now! Enjoy, my friend.. Sending you many affectionate purrs, your pal, Ricky
