About Me

Active within 1 Day

Hi! My name is Handy Andy #149735 WOW COTD! THANK YOU ALL!

I am Domestic Shorthair from Minneapolis, MN

Nicknames: Handy Andy! Andy is a short haired white with grey tabby spots.

Age: 5 years old

Gender: M

Coat: short haired

Education: Andy and Milo came in as rescues from the streets, from the same area. Andy, grey tabby spots on white, was rescued at about 6 mos of age. Milo is a long haired black cat, declawed, who came in originally with Andy, was adopted out to someone with a small dog, but returned, because they were not getting along. He is happy to be home! They have made an easy transition to living with our family, formed a close friendship bond with each other, and enjoy playing MHL Hockey. Obviously they learned to skate on icy city streets. As of, 5/21/10 Andy and Milo were adopted, but it didn't work out for them, so they returned to our foster home. Andy is now with us permanently due to the discovery of a heart murmer. Milo finally found a forever home! Hope to see him again on a new page of his own and the name has chgd to Myles!

First COTD was given to Andy and Angelo, our foster kitties back then on 2/11/2010.

WOW! TODAY 4/15/14 ANDY WAKES UP AND RUBS HIS EYES WITH HIS PAW--- COTD! MY OWN FIRST COTD! THANK YOU SO MUCH DEAR CC FURRENDS! HE BOUNCES OUT OF BED TO HUG EVERYONE, WHO HAS STOPPED BY FOR THE PAWTY!

THANKS MIKE & FAMILY VOTE #1600!

My favorite tricks and treats are: They are survivors-- Andy was only about 6 mos old when he first arrived. He is full grown now, but still on the small side. Milo is a young adult, perhaps about 3 yrs. They love to run, roll and play and are always an inspiration to watch. and They like anything, as long as its food or water!

Where I hang out: Wherever his new friend Honey is!

My favorite grubs: Friskies' canned. He is on a high quality dry kibble, but he loves his Friskies!

My pet peeves: People, who consider cats and kittens throwaways. Andy is very social and obviously had a family when he was a small kitten, but now he was found roaming the streets and no one to claim him. He was very thin, had scratches on his nose, but was otherwise healthy. Milo, the LH black cat, was neutered and declawed. No signs of anyone looking for either of them.

What I love about my owners: She saved us from the life of being strays. The rescue group she fosters for made sure we got neutered, health checks, and treated for worms and other parasites.

My cat hobbies: Eat and sleep-- mom offered a toy to Andy when he first arrived and he was afraid of it. Gradually he learned to play again.

Pet motto: One more stray out of harm's way!

How We Met

Andy came in as a foster and went to many adoptions for over a year. Somehow the right person never came along. His friend Milo found a forever home, but they did not want two cats, so Andy stayed on. Then, when his annual vet exam came up, it was discovered that he had a heart murmur. Probably had it from birth, but it was in a place that was hard to detect. That was the clincher for mom. No more stress for Andy. He would stay with us forever!

WOW! AND THANK YOU ALL DEAR FURRENDS FOR THIS COTD TODAY 4/15/14. THANK YOU BOO KITTY AND MOM FOR THE BEAUTIFUL FRAME. WE WILL BE COMING AROUND TO THANK EVERYONE INDIVIDUALLY THIS THURSDAY AND FRIDAY, BUT WORDS CANNOT EXPRESS ALL OUR LOVE FOR YOU AND HOW MUCH ANDY, MOM AND ALL APPRECIATE YOUR FRIENDSHIP!

ALWAYS something!
Dating people should NEVER adopt an animal together-it never works out,and then what about the animal when they split. Hope it all works out for the orangie and your mom.

Distract and deny
Always a good rule of thumb. Its Barbie in a blender day. YOU distract while I grab the blender,and then we both deny we did it. We'll blame the orange things :)

is of a sunrise before janet went to work one morning and we did have another yesterday, but it faded to fast for her to get a good picture as we have had a lot of them lately in the mornings! had some bad electrical storms which ended water sports day a bit earlier, but it was better that way so kitties could make it home before the worst moved in around 7 last night and lasted till 11! there went janet's planned evening walk s if she had tried around 6 it was still around 80 and a bit on the hot side to do it. sandy,ab,haley,angels

Thanks for pouncing by today to congratulate us
We had a pawtastic time basking in the COTD spotlight & it was even better when all of our sweet CC furiends came by to play with us. Thank you SO much for sharing our special day of honor!

Today we're heading to the park with our Teddy Bears so we can celebrate Teddy Bear Picnic Day! We've got our basket packed & would love for all of you to join us. Whatever you do watch where you step though because it's also Don't Step on a Bee Day! These very important flower pollinators numbers have been dwindling for the past several years so it's vital to preserve as many as we can. Well got to run because our Teddy Bears are getting anxious to picnic...MOL!

Have a purrfect day & thank you again for helping us celebrate our beautiful COTD badge yesterday!

Sweet hugs,

It's a purrfect day outside...
or at least meowmy says it is...MOL! We don't know because we can't get into the windows by ourselves yet but they're open so it can't be as hot as it has been lately. The big kitties have been jumping up into them to look out & we can hardly wait until we can do that too! Monkey hasn't escaped anymore since mom & dad blocked the area she was using & she's been super furiendly to us by showering us with kisses! Does that mean we can pounce on her & not get whacked? We sure hope so! Too bad Patchy teases us by swishing her fluffy tail all of the time but anytime we try to grab it she gives us a look that sends us scurrying to play with something that won't whack back...MOL! Trixie is a pretty cool kitty but she moves so fast it's hard to keep up...although we are trying. She truly is a cyclone the way she blows through the house...MOL! She meowed something about learning the 'Trixie rules' of the house. We have no idea what that means yet but I'm sure we'll find out...just hopefully not the hard way! Fluffinella is getting more used to us each day but she still has her moments of hissing when we get too rambunctious. She's just so interesting to us because we can't get close so anytime she makes an appearance you'll see us following. We though mom was torturing us last night when we went into the kitchen to mew for our milk & didn't get any!! She did give us some wet food (which we gobbled up) so it didn't kill us to go without but it will take a few days to get used to the idea...MOL! Meowmy told dad they need to get some soft treats for us when they go shopping tonight so we hope they find some we'll like! Well we've got to take our nap so will meow at you again soon since we'll be the main bloggers for the month (woohoo...MOL).

Soft kitten kisses,

Hello Handy Andy!
Thanks for stopping by to help us celebrate our super surprise COTD! This was a total shock! None of us - especially mom! - ever expected to see our smiling faces in the spotlight today. We're having a terrific time with all our friends, and hope you had fun, too! We brought a big thank-you vote and an extra-large goody bag just for you! There's a little of everything in there. We especially like the catnip caramel. There might even be some of those tiny little bottles of moonshine in there, never know! Thanks for stopping by!

Still in shock

Hey Handy Andy!
I'm back...again! We could not log into CC for the longest time,and finally mom gave up and tried changing her password! That helped us log on today,and I sure hope it continues to work!! I have missed chatting with you,my friend and everyone else too!

Mom and dad made a few changes around the house for us cats while we were offline. First,they made a new enclosure for Eli,Opie and Growlie. They were in the one off the living room (used to be a deck) the boys were spraying and peeing everywhere so bad that the urine smell was getting in the house~yuck! So now they have a small 6x8 building with a nice fenced in yard...away from the house,MOL! Their house is air conditioned too! Then dad cleaned up the old enclosure with Clorox and kerosene and it got rid of the smell out of the wood! He put a cat door in the front door so the inside kitties can now use the enclosure! And boy are they ever using it too! They all love it,so it was a win,win for all! Next,dad is building us outside kitties an extra room off the closed in porch(where our hot tub is),and we are being nice and 'letting' them put their exercise equipment in there! I think they think it is theirs,but WE know its really ours,MOL!

Hope all is well with you,buddy,and your sweet mom! Give her a sandpaper kiss for me,OK? Hope I can continue to log in from now on! Hope all is well with you!~Purrs,(Dandy)Andy,of the Inside Cats

Repeat day!
Maybe I can repeat my morning meal. Maybe this time Gma will get it right and NOT give me the beef flavored FF. Hate that stuff. She divides a teeny,tiny can between me and the orange rat. We have to SHARE! Its like what...one,maybe two licks? Why bother opening the thing unless I get a complete,wholesome meal out of it.I'm staging a protest. Want to help?? There's a can of FF in it for you :)
