About Me

Active within 2 Days

Hi! My name is Sir Pique~Vote MOUSE #219407 Sept. COTM~

I am Domestic Shorthair from Midland, MI

Nicknames: PeteZa Boos, Peekaboo, Pique, Big Boy, Punkin

Age: 2 years old

Gender: M

Coat: short haired

Education: July 6, 2015 I am 11 months old now and a BIG kitten! I weigh somewhere north of 12 pounds now and I get into everything. I also have some very unique and endearing habits. When Mom stands at the kitchen counter to wave to Daddy in the morning, I stand up beside her and hold her hand with my front paws. I also *love* playing fetch! Some days I don't give Mom a moment's rest because I will bring my toy back to her over and over again and expect her to throw it for me. Mom can't imagine life without me!

March 2, 2015 I am now just 4 days shy of 7 months old and I rule the house! (That's what I think, anyway!) Mom weighed me today and I'm 9 lbs. 3.6 ozs. I'm on track to be HUGE! I can do pretty much anything I set my little mind to do, and it drives Mom nuts. MOL!!

12/23/14 Pique is now 4.5 months old, and fearless! He doesn't seem to be afraid of anything, unless it's ghosts. The vacuum doesn't faze him, he swats it and sometimes rides it. The dogs don't bother him, the other cats are just things to be annoyed. He is an unusual cat, for sure!

10/20/14 Pique is now almost 10 weeks old, and he's proven to be a very smart and active boy. He can jump or climb just about anywhere he wants to get. He has figured out the enclosure and found all the good kitty hiding places, and charmed his Dad so much that he's staying for good.


9/6/14 He's four weeks old today, and he knows his name and how to charm Mom and Dad.

My favorite tricks and treats are: He runs, jumps, and tries hard to type intelligible sentences. and Party Mix treats, canned food, cookies, crackers, just about anything edible.

Where I hang out: The enclosure, the couch, the human's bed and the catwalk.

My favorite grubs: Any canned food, any food my human Mom eats.

My pet peeves: Being told "NO"! Being told that he's too old to be nursing. Not getting his own way all the time. The big kitties not playing with him.

What I love about my owners: They were there when I was born, they've helped me grow strong and be healthy and they've committed to keeping me that way forever!

My cat hobbies: Play, annoy the other cats and the dogs.

Pet motto: PLAY! Annoy as many other animals as you can until they agree to play with you!

8/6/14 Nurse and sleep, you'll grow up big and strong.

THANK YOU ANA B. FOR VOTE #1000!!

How We Met

Mom was a neighbor's cat who decided she wanted to live with me. Neighbor didn't care enough to take her home, even when he was told she was pregnant. PiqueABoo was born 3 days after I brought Verlander inside, on the same day his human Dad had surgery.

Hi Pique!
I thought we were goners this morning! Cyber-goners, that is. As if Mom hasn't been having enough trouble getting us on our rounds what with 'puter issues and work, here it is her day off and she is slowly making her way through the special day kitties when the dreaded pop-up comes on "your battery is very low". Well that's not so bad, just plug in the charger, right? Except she plugged in the charger and ... it didn't start charging! So she's unplugging the charger, checking all the connections, plugging it in again, meanwhile the battery go so low that the 'puter blanked right out! And then finally, she got the charger working and we were back in business. I tell you, computers are out to GET us!!

Well, we are rolling now and that's the main thing. It's a really nice sunny day but cold, the furnace came on a couple of times early this morning. Makes a kitty appreciate her Mom's nice comfy bed, huh? Mom cut the grass yesterday after work for what might be the last time this year, this morning she's doing laundry and our blogging, then this afternoon she might go out to the farm that has the big corn maze. Before the rain comes which it is supposed to do tomorrow. Then she works 4 days in a row again because tomorrow is inventory & ALL hands are going to be on deck! -- Moj

Hi Pique!
Can you believe it's almost the end of September and CC is still here?? We're all getting ready for another coronation and the chance to see a Mouse as Queen of Cat Channel (giggle).

Nope, no run of the house at night for us. When most of the Big Bros & Sisses still lived here & Angel Mallow was allowed outside, Mom worried that with humans coming & going on different schedules one of us "innies" might accidentally end up outside and Mom not know till morning. So we get tucked in behind closed doors at night and we're used to it. If she's too late starting the bedtime routine Evie & I will even start hovering around to remind her. -- Moj

Hi Pique
I'm back! Mom business is finished so I get to play on here again. :)
I like the nephew. I follow him all over the house when he comes over. I'm not fond of his sister though. I hiss at here if she gets too close.
We're having cooler temps here. I like it. Sienna gets a bit chilly though.

Hi Pique!
Yep, we saw that Maggie Meme crossed the Bridge. She's one of my fellow Hairballz riders! Her Mom isn't in the CC/FB group but she IS in Zoe Monique's Hairballz FB group with a lot of CC families and other kitties who used to be on ShowmeCats, and they're honouring her crossing over there big time! Kitties are making Angel pictures & everything. Don't worry, Maggie Meme's Mom feels lots of love & hugs coming her way.

Yep, we have doors and Mom likes to close hers at night so we kitties aren't wandering around the house finding trouble to get into ... now would WE do that? -- Moj

Hi Pique!
Great minds think alike, Mom just updated the Angel picture when she got home today. She's been watching for a picture of Sparkle but never saw one, so she just posted Sasquatch. Then later tonight she thought to go looking for a picture of Sparkle and found one (way to go, Ms. McGoo!) so now she's posted them both.

Yes, we miss Mom during the day but she comes home for lunch with us. Earlier I was in her room with her & we were having a nice snuggle. Now Evie is having a turn. If they're in there all by themselves much longer I'll have to go pawing at the door like I did last night. I am the Official Bedtime Enforcer (giggle). -- Moj

Hi Pique!
Oh yeah, Mom runs antivirus and anti-spyware and does her scans. Big Bro Will set her up with a free registry cleaner so every so often she runs that, too. Even though it makes the 'puter forget ALL her "favourites". Well, thanks to bookmarks we can always put them back, no problem. Sounds like a few other kitties had trouble with CC over the weekend, but the main thing is ... we're still here!

Mom has work today, in fact she has work every day clear through the end of the MONTH! Sounds awful when you say it that way, doesn't it? So we are all watching the sun come up together while we do our CC rounds. Looks like a nice day ahead.

Ewww! I don't know if I have ever seen a stinkbug but I don't like their name! I hope they stay OUT of your house! -- Moj

Oh, Pique! (Grr! Hiss!)
Our 'puter has been driving Mom bananas all weekend so far! Wheels just going round and round and error messages that say "A web page is slowing down your browser". Why, last night I heard her talking to the 'puter ... "WHAT web page? Just tell me so I can CLOSE it!" Well gee, 'puters don't have ears, even I know that. She thinks it has to do with the big fat Windows 10 update that plunked itself uninvited onto our 'puter a few days ago, and it's better this morning since she closed her e-mail program. Hmmm ... guess she's going to have to do a cleanup when she's done on CC!

Me, I was having fun yesterday playing with beetles, there were TWO of them crawling on the outside of the window! Guess they want to come inside where it's warm, I don't blame them and if it was up to ME I would let them in so they could play with me. I have a nano hexbug that's allowed to run around in the house but (blush) I am nervous of the noise it makes and don't play with it. Real bugs are so much quieter!

Why, it was even so Brrr Friday night that Mom turned the furnace back on yesterday morning. Guess that means it is officially fall! -- Moj

Awww Pique and Zoo Crew, Thank you so much!
It's Storm of the Formerly Feral Kitties,
Wow can you believe that we were actually Cats Of The Day?
We had no idea that we'd ever get a COTD Badge, what an honor! When dad told us we won our badge, we could hardly believe it. We went to hockey practice on Wednesday evening and everyone was so nice to us, We are hoping that some of the teams that lost players will pick us up to fill in on their rosters, We have lots of experience because we bat milk bottle tops all around our special room! We are pretty good hockey players if I do say so myself.
We all want to thank you so much for your visit and your vote, without you, we would never have received this honor!

Purrs and hugs,
Your pals,
Storm, Bobby, Inky, Aria, Lizzie and Charlee!

Hi Pique!
I'm in the window on the watch for moths, but none so far! I'm not sure I would actually eat one of them, their wings look kind of yuck! Now flies, that's a different story. Or as I've heard some wise kitties call them, "sky raisins". Our Angel Jezebel used to catch them out of the air and eat them if no one stopped her.

They're ALL lots of fun to chase, that's for sure! -- Moj

It's dark outside and a great big fat moth just landed on the outside of our new window. You know, the one I can actually SEE out of? Anyway I sure saw that moth and I am in the window now leaping up in the air at Mr. Moth! Sometimes little bitty bugs crawl on the outside of the window, too, and I do my best to pull them through the glass, mol. -- Moj

Hi Pique!
Actually, it's Mikey who starts most days with a cuddle. Like this morning, when Mom woke up he was on her pillow (all 17 lbs of him! She actually keeps a second pillow on the bed just for HIM so she won't get crowded right off of HERS) and when that happens she usually pets him for a while, rubs his ears and calls him her special pillow boy and he purrs and purrs. Okay, have I embarrassed my big brother enough now?

My cuddle routine is at bedtime. Mom always reads for a bit before lights out and every night that is my cue to climb on her, lie down between her eyes and the book and roll over for my belly rubs. And she once worried that I would never warm up to humans! Yep, it's a pretty good life!

Oh, and Evie is not left out even though she doesn't sleep in our room. Her cuddle routine is whenever she feels like one, all day long. She's cuddling beside Mom right now as she types. And she loves to watch TV at night with Big Bro Will.

Sounds like your pawrents & the dogs had a good day at the park! Wow, all that and a burger each too? I'd say your dogs are pretty lucky but I'd still rather be a cat. -- Moj

Hey, Pique!
Jakar here. Well, Mom has until next month to decide if she should keep me on the pet insurance. Our policies come up around the 21st of next month. She will probably get ahold of them to see if it's gonna be worth it. They did cover the first 5K of my expenses.

Insurance companies get away with a lot. The insurance our dad has had for a really long time for any long-term medical care in the future, (should he need it), just raised his premium by 37% because they said their "cost of doing business" was impacting their profits. I kid you not!

When he first purchased it several decades ago, as a hedge against long term care as a senior, he was told that his premiums would remain static. Guess what? They lied. The increase has nothing to do with his health, which is just fine, it has to do with the company losing out on their percentage of profit! Dad is really ticked off.

If he drops it, he loses out on all those years of payments, but he's not happy about having to pay out an additional 37% for less coverage. Mom says it's the company's way of getting people to drop out voluntarily, because they can't just exclude them anymore.

Many purrs, Jakar

Hi Pique
The nephew did indeed look smokin' and Mom has the picture. She is thinking about blowing it up for GM for Christmas and framing it nicely. Of course there will be senior pics too.
Mom sees them out at Walmart in pj's all the time and has been guilty in doing it herself a few times. Mostly if she has to go for something at night. Slippers however are a no-go. Those stay home at all times!

Hey, Pique! Jakar here
Sorry I'm late in replying. Yesterday the folks were busy helping Aunt Pam move her furniture. She's getting in new carpeting for the upstairs bedrooms, hallway and stairs, as well as new flooring in the kitchen. The installers did move the really heavy stuff like the fridge and stove in the kitchen, but the rest was up to the furamily.

Anyway, the folks got home pretty late, since Aunt Pam took them out to eat. Mom didn't do much more than leave votes when she came home.

Yeah, the pet insurance listed my lymphoma now as " pre-existing" so I will NOT be covered for anything connected to it in the future. Other stuff, yeah, but any future treatments, chemo or medication, nope. Yeah, it DOES bite. Oh well.

Woo Hoo, Pique! Come join my 3rd birthday pawty!
The day started with loves & cuddles from my Mom. She's off work and it's pouring rain outside, so she gets to stay home with us ALL DAY. She opened up a can of some really stinky tuna food and Mikey, Evie & I each got some for a special treat.

Now all my pals from the Hairballz are here, my friend Zippy brought me a rockin' Ladybug cake and later on we are going flyboarding ... (picture in my gallery) if you dare!

Yep, a dandelion that isn't a dandelion. We get dandelions too, but they only come early in the year, then the Cats Ear takes over for the rest of the summer. It has longer stems with more than one flower on them and it doesn't have that goofy dandelion milk inside either. But the bees still like it all the same. -- Moj

Hi Pique
Mom agrees. She says once they're on, she doesn't want to go anywhere. She's not a fan of sitting in the rain either, if given the choice. At least it wasn't cold.
The Tigers won both games last night. Sophs: 32-0 at the half; varsity: 35-7. Now the nephew is getting ready for the dance tonight. They helped him find a nice dress shirt so he will be looking sharp!

Hi Pique!
Well, the GRASS wasn't actually long, but the weeds were sticking their heads up and needed them cut off. There's this one weed out there that looks like a dandelion, it took Mom a long time to figure out that it's not and get this, what it IS is something called "cats ear". Now WE say that's a sign and she should let them flourish out there, but does she listen to US? NOOOOO!

The clouds started coming over this afternoon and it was starting to rain a little bit, so after work she got out there and cut the "grass" in case it's a couple of weeks before she gets the chance again. Now she has four days off and we kitties are going to keep a close eye on her. -- Moj

Hi Pique!,
Well, there's just the three of us, and, technically, we are all " special needs" kitties, so Mom felt we needed health insurance. It's still kind of a ripoff in a way, because of the unrealistic caps they put on the amount they will ultimately pay.

My initial ultrasound and X-rays, my abdominal surgery, and subsequent biopsy, as well as my five days in the vetspital, (two of which under 24hr recovery care), used up my whole year's worth of medical insurance. That didn't even cover the nearly five months of chemotherapy, monthly ultrasounds, and medications. Of course, now I'm listed as having a " pre-existing condition" in case anything nasty crops up in the future....no coverage for me.

Mom says people used to be denied insurance for pre-existing conditions, too. But not anymore. At least not for now. That might change back again...hope not.

Anyway, the actual chemo drugs, the Prednisolone and the Orbax antibiotic had been somewhat offset, but the folks still have had to liquidate some investments to cover their share of my entire bill, since they are both retired. But, hey, it's nearly all done, and the folks agree that I am certainly worth it!

MOL, Pique, Mikey says he remembers
when your Mom made that mistake. It was before my time here, but he thinks that it was after that when the CMR crew started a special page to keep track of COTD winners.

It was really nice here today and Mom was going to cut the grass when she got home from work, but then she sat down to eat and use the 'puter and just never quite got back up, mol. She's off Saturday and it's supposed to still be sunny then. Not like it really needs done that badly.

Today she delivered to the shop on a great big farm and she actually saw a deer and a fawn as she was dropping off the parts! The shop guy had his phone out taking video of them and Mom waited till they'd gone over the fence to drive away so her car didn't scare them. And not only that, in the course of her travels today she saw a total of SIX beautiful restored Ford Fairlanes driving around. And a Thunderbird too. Must be some classic Ford event going on somewhere nearby! -- Moj

Hi Pique! It's Jakar
Well, I'm sure it could be even more expensive otherwise. My purrsonal medical insurance coverage has topped out for the year, and the folks had to liquidate some assets to cover the remainder of my chemo bill.

MOL! Dad jokes around that I'm "literally" worth my weight in gold, except I don't think he's really joking. Nearly done, though.

Many purrs, Jakar

HI PIQUE
HOW ARE YOU? HOPE YOU ARE DOING WELL. I AM DOING FURTASTIC MYSELF.

MOM TOOK ME FOR A NICE WALK TODAY ON MY LEASH IN THE ALLEY SO I COULD MUNCH DOWN ON SOME GREENS, THEN I DECIDED TO PLOP DOWN IN THE GRASS AND LAY THERE. SO MOM SAT ON A CINDER BLOCK, THEN I GOT UP AND MOVED ALONG.

THEN WE CAME BACK IN THE YARD AND SHEBA WAS CHASING A BUTTERFLY AROUND THE YARD AND KELSEE WAS SLEEPING ON MOMS CHAIR.

MOM DID GO OUT FOR A WALK TO THE ICE CREAM SHOP DOWN THE STREET AND GOT A CONE AND SAT IN THE BENCH IN TOWN SQUARE AND ATE IT.

I WOKE MOM UP THIS MORNING BY SITTING ON HER TUMMY. SHE COULDN'T BREATHE I GUESS SO SHE MOVED ME, AND I CLIMBED BACK ABOARD...I ENJOY SITTING ON MOMS BACK OR BELLY OR EVEN HER LEGS...I LIKE TO BE CLOSE.

WE ARE HAVING A PAWSOME WEEK, BEEN NICE IN THE 70'S, BUT HUMIDITY HAS BEEN HIGH, STILL REALLY NICE OUT THOUGH, MOM SITS ON THE PORCH READING HER BOOK.

HAVE A PAWSOME EVENING

You are so right, Pique
And modern medicine continues to make amazing advances everyday. Interestingly, modern veterinary medicine is right there alongside human medicine, since so much useful information is gained from animals, (although sometimes very unfortunately).

I'm really grateful to my pawrents, my vets, the techs and staff of my vetspital for their experienced care and their sincere dedication to their their patients, (including me). They refused to even consider giving up on me, even after the doc removed a grape-sized tumor from my intestine. They refused to give up even after it was diagnosed as large cell lymphoma. No other lymph nodes or areas were involved, as far as numerous comprehensive ultrasounds revealed, so surgery to remove the tumor and surrounding "clean margins" of my large intestine then do a six-month "rotating chemo" protocol with additional home medication was decided to be the most hopeful course of action. My vet has been consulting monthly on my purrsonal treatment and my progress with senior veterinary oncologists at Cummings and UC Davis veterinary schools as part of a feline oncology study. They are optimistic.

I'm nearly finished, and we are "winding down" my treatments with about another six weeks or so to go. Then just monthly monitoring. Mom is thankful for the results so far. She is grateful for all the support and prayers from our CC furamily, and for the outpouring of love I have been shown.

Many purrs, Jakar

Hey Pique!
Mom & I appreciate your love & support & everyone trying to help me get another COTD! Angel Anderson apoligizes for his Mom having a senior moment. Somehow she missed me getting COTD on 2/5/16! Really Mom? Of course I am not eligible again. She can't imagine how she missed that! It may be time for us to accept applications for a new blogger who won't miss these important days! I am so embarrassed. Again we appreciate our friends trying so hard to help me get another COTD. We are so lucky to have found CC! Long may it live! Thanks! You cats are the best! Leaving a vote. Peace & love. Have a purrfect evening. Kitty Kisses. Angel Anderson

Oh, Pique! Did you hear?
Angel Anderson is over on CMR absolutely red-faced, it seems he got his COTD back in February and his Mom forgot to put it on his Wall of Fame! So he's not eligible after all, would you believe? But he says he loves all of us for trying! -- Moj

We did it, Pique!
Just came from Angel Anderson's page and bopped his votey button! A couple of other kitties have joined your family on CMR reminding everyone and I think we can get him that badge! And I just got my 4,000th vote last night, I never thought I would get to see THAT day back when CC posted its very first eviction notice just ONE week after my page went up in December of 2013! -- Moj

Hi Pique
Just came from A Anderson's page. I will get the word to whoever I visit today!

Have a super happy day. Purrs and hugs, Spanky

Come visit me, Spanky-Jack! Till we meet again, dear furiends!.

Aww, thanks Sir Pique
But Doc Curtis, (my veterinarian), is very careful to not ever use the word "cured" . He cautions that the current diagnosis he put into my chart is "full remission" . However, keeping me that way will require constant vigilance. He also stresses that there are no guarantees when it comes to my medical status.

The next 12-24 months are crucial. If I can manage to stay cancer-free throughout that period, then my chances for long term survival look pretty good.

Thank you and your dear furamily for all your support. Much appreciated.

Many purrs, Jakar

You're very welcome, Sir Pique
Jakar here. I've gotta apologize for not getting back to you yesterday. Our folks had their monthly board gaming group over, always the first Sat of the month, and Mom didn't get time to do more than leave votes, not any text other than a c/p. She didn't even get a chance to look at our pages.

Today, once a friend, who was staying over in the guest room left to go back home to Sacramento, The folks spent most of the day tidying up and doing the usual weekend chores.

As for me, my appetite is back today and I'm not barfy either. I am still napping most of the day, but otherwise I'm feeling much better. Mom remembers the doc telling her that the effects of the chemo are cumulative, which is why they are spreading out my treatments. I'm still taking the Pred, but only once a day and this upcoming week will be it for the Orbax.

Looks like I'm nearly finished with this ordeal, other than my checkups. Maybe just two or three more chemo doses over the next two months, them I'm done. Whew! The doc wants to wipe out any residual malignant cells that might be lingering around.

So, that's the latest. My next chemo is scheduled for the 29th. Wish me luck.

Many purrs, Jakar

Please forgive me for not pawing back sooner. Seb's momma has been doing an awful job of that hasn't she. I am so pleased that everyone seems to be enjoying the tour I planned for us. I wasn't sure how everyone would feel about it when I started my campaign back in August. Timothy/A. Tia's poppa's father's family came from Quebec back in the early part of the last century. It's always been a favorite vacation trip for Seb's and my momma. Sebastien's name is the French spelling of Sebastian if any one has been wondering why it is spelled differently.

We lucked out this past weekend. The weather people thought we might get some strong storms but thankfully we didn't; just got some rain. All of us are so glad that the temperatures are cooling down. Guess Fall is finally on it's way.

Seb's momma had been taking care of our neighbor kitties, Winston and Precious this past week. Precious is an only indoor kitty and doesn't really like visitors. Winston is an only kitty too and lives right behind us. He loves having visitors and loves to snuggle with Seb's momma when she takes care of him. Yeah, Sebastien isn't too happy about that.

Seb's momma's “free” tomato plants are doing quiet well. Several of them have grown very tall and have not only tons of buds but tomatoes forming on them as well. Not bad for free tomato plants.

Timothy/Tia's poppa heard from Seb's sister tonight. Her shipping pod arrived on Thursday and she plans on being in Michigan by the 25th of this month. It will be nice to have her here for good.

Your Welcome. We all hope you enjoyed your special day.

Have a purrtastic Monday.

Loving purrs and hugs,
Queen A. Kieara
