My Cat Profile

Exotic Shorthair from <a href='' title='Helena, MT'>Helena, MT</a>


About Me

Active within 3509 Days

Hi! My name is Taymet

I am Exotic Shorthair from Helena, MT

Nicknames: Taymet the Golden-Eyed Goddess. She is named for an Egyptian goddess who watched out for female cats.

Age: 11 years old

Gender: F

Coat: short haired

Education: If Mom says "pet?" I will butt my head against her hand for petting. If I want to go into the hallway and watch people, I will sit by the door and say "Out?" in my musical voice. I am very curious about all things mechanical inside a house, particularly plumbing. One day I pulled the plug out of the bathtub and inspected the drain. Then I put the plug back in place.

Not long after I was adopted, I was attacked by an unleashed dog while I was being walked outside on a leash. I fought off a pit-bull until I could be rescued.

My favorite tricks and treats are: I will fetch small objects and walk on a leash. I can't be beat when it comes to hunting moths, either! and I like anything with poultry.

Where I hang out: On a kitty window perch in the sunshine. It's the best place to watch squirrels and birds.

My favorite grubs: Fancy Feast gourmet white chicken and egg souffle.

My pet peeves: I hate younger cats with no manners. I am a quiet and reserved cat who deserves some respect. I am learning to tolerate Lynx's exuberance.

What I love about my owners: She gives me lots of love and talks to me.

My cat hobbies: I love to watch people, especially if I can do so without being bothered. People even say I seem to listen intently and participate in the conversations. I also like to explore our apartment building, the third floor in particular.

Pet motto: Original poem: I saw a moth atop the stairs/I leaped and chased it through the air/Alas, it hid and escaped its fate/But I'm not worried---I can wait!

How We Met

I went to the animal shelter after a very bad day, wanting to cheer myself up while surrounded by cats. I sat on the floor of the cat room and was immediately surrounded by cats. As I was petting and praising, I noticed one smaller, blackish cat. She would start toward me but stop and wait patiently if another cat started toward me. I was so touched by her sweet manners and was finally able to pet her. I was drawn by her unusual color---a smokey silver tabby with golden eyes. She also had the most incredible fur I had ever felt---as soft and luxurious as a Persian's but short. I took her into another room where we could spend a few minutes alone together and it was instant love. She went home with me that night.

Hiss? Lilly beats me up almost every day! She doesn't like to share and now we have the new guy, who think he must follow me everywhere and since he's a kitten, that means "RUN" everywhere... I'm exhausted!

OMG! Its snowing! Mom opened the window so I could look out. I was kind of scared at first, but excited too. It will probably melt, but I have to keep an eye on it. No signs of outdoor kitties. I bet they are all laying in front of their fireplaces tonight! Purrs, Edina

Hey how have you been?? It's me Juby. We haven't talked for a little bit. Whats new??? How is the weather by you? Have you done any summer activities yet? Well my crazy mommy thought I would like a visit to the local carnival....she was a little wrong with that one. Yes I do like being outside safe and sound in my buggy or in my cat play pen...b/c my mommy doesn't let me go outside by myself BUT I did not appreciate the loud noises and the many people and children at the carnival. Everyone was interested in me though, b/c I am so cute and friendly but I just balled myself up in the back corner of my buggy. My mommy felt bad and took me home. The fresh air was nice but it was too noisy for my little ears. So that is really all that is new with me. I will be 1 year old on June 27th YEAH for me. My mommy bought me a shirt from and it says "It's My Birthday!" and I am gonna wear that when we take my birthday pictures. And since I am a new cat and my mommy is a new cat mommy, I think both of us want to know, will I ever stop shedding???!!! I am supposed to be an exotic shorthair, emphasis on the shorthair and my mommy can brush me everyday and there will always be a mound of hair she takes out. Just wondering but cutie pie take care and enjoy summer!!!! Love lots....JUBY

Come visit me, Juby Lee.

Hi Taymet & Lynx - whereever you are!
We miss you guys! What's new? First the good news - our Merrybelle is Cat of the Day today. So come on over to her page for the celebration. Now the scary news - Mommy was in a panic about the food recall. Casper eats Science Diet kitten savory cuts. But, thank goodness, none of the recalled UPC codes matched the cans we have. Mommy called Dr. Pat yesterday at home and he said that if he had eaten any of the "tainted" food, he would probably start showing signs pretty quickly, by 12 hours. So we are much relieved!! Hope all is well with you two. Chat soon, OK?! Please! Miss you, Sissy

St. Patrick's Day without you = :(
Oh goodness. Taymet and Lynx, we sure are worried about your family. We missed you two dear friends today. We looked and look for you at Katlyn's party, and then Sonny Bono's party, but could see neither one of you. Oh, we hope you all are all right! Ateret, Tereza, and Ma-Ma (who was not at the parties)

Hi Taymet and Lynx
We missed you guys at my 1st birthday party. Hope everything is OK. It was the bestest day ever!!! Mommy & Nana sang the birthday song to me all day. They wore t-shirts with my photo that said "It's Casper's 1st Birthday". Hopefully Mommy gott some good photos. At work she gave out Hershey bars with labels with my pic on them. And guess what? My name was even on the bank's sign that wishes happy birthdays! I was the photo of the day in the newspaper, too. Sorry you missed all the excitement. luv you both! Casper Todd
