My Cat Profile

British Shorthair from <a href='' title='Oakland, CA'>Oakland, CA</a>


About Me

Active within 2839 Days

Hi! My name is Selket

I am a British Shorthair from Oakland, CA

Nicknames: Beefy Cakes, Meatball & Selket the Brave (she can also be very cowardly)

Age: 12 years old

Gender: F

Coat: short haired

Education: I am making great progress with my dual-diagnosis of ADHD and PTSD. I was really scared when I first moved in here, but now I am starting to believe this is my forever home. I am starting to show my family just what a love bug I can be.

My favorite tricks and treats are: It's sort of a trick. My ear is missing it's tip. My family has been denying the truth of my feral background and attributing the ear to a "tragic refrigerator accident that happened in early kittenhood," and my favorite treats are Whiskas Crunch Lovers Crab flavored. I LOVE my Mom's home-cooking and will almost always eat a piece of meat if offered. I also love fresh yogurt and don't mind flavors like cherry or peach. My tongue gets very long and curly outside of my mouth when you offer me yogurt.

Where I hang out: The hammock in the cat tower and the shelf by the window.

My favorite grubs: Wellness and Meow Mix. Any/All wet food. I just LOVE the entire concept of wet cat food and breakfast! Yeah!

My pet peeves: The apartment buzzer makes me turn into rock-hard beef as I run under the couch in sheer terror. I also hate the vacuum. I get freaked out when 2-leggers stand over me and I hate to be picked up.

What I love about my owners: I love everything about my Dad. I especially like his lap and the saucy-meat treats he sometimes gives me from his plate. I've learned to love Mom, especially getting groomed in a ritualistic manner in her lap. I get along well with my sisters (by adoption) Isis & Nephthys.
Finally, Mom & Dad are very proud of me because I am the only kitty in the family who respects Mom's crochet "snakes". The others play with them, but I respect them. I actually walked into her lap once when she was untying giant knots - I walked right into the center of it and sat on her lap!

My cat hobbies: I love spending time with my Dad. He's the best! He makes me feel safe and secure and happy. Then when I'm happy I eat my crunchies.

Pet motto: Ah!! What's that?!!? Don't trust those 2-leggers! Run! Hide!

How We Met

I was being fostered in a giant, sterile house with no neat hiding places and no nice cats when my new Mom and Dad answered an ad on the Internet. I came home on a rainy night and have been adjusting ever since.

Have you ever heard the song "Do You Believe In Magic" by the Loving Spoonful? That could sung by Apple and his brother Herman #61816. Some time ago, their Mom was in her yard and met an old battle scarred Tom who came by looking for a meal. She fed him and he started coming every day. Oh, how she wanted to take him into her home and keep him safe, but there was already a cat living inside who was not having another invader. The Mom looked forward to seeing the Old Warrior every day! But one day, he never returned. Shortly after that, the Mom's resident cat passed over the Rainbow Bridge. The Mom was alone and heartbroken. But a miracle happened! The very next day she saw a feral mama cat come into her yard with her kittens, and all but one looked like the Old Warrior! Herman and Apple were 2 of these kittens. Oh, the Mom was so happy! It was magic, it was almost like having the Old Warrior back! She took the mama cat and all the kittens into her house where they remain to this day. "A heart that is loved will always find its way back to you." Please vote MONDAY for Herman #61816 and help him celebrate his birthday on Tuesday with a COTD badge! Also, Kitties, you are doing such a good job about voting for Ginger #12433 every day for her COTM badge! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Hugs and purrs and a vote for you!

Animal House! Yes! Mouse #31300 lives in a house with lots of friends. There's another kitty named Stormy. There are Cricket & Cuddles, the two dogs who you can see on the Dog Channel. There are 3 named pet fish. There's a bird named Benny, and a Green Anole lizard named Lilly. Mouse has been on CC since last July and has supported the COTD campaigns. Won't you help Mouse #31300 get his badge so all the animals in his house can have a big celebration! Kitties, we hope you will also go by and vote for Gin Gin "the super purring engine" #12433 every day this month for her COTM badge. Gin Gin is always there when someone needs a purrayer or comforting word. Thanks Kitties!

Once upon a time 13 years ago, a Lion King was born. Through no fault of his own, he was going to be sent to the animal shelter. But on the way, he stopped by his future home, and the people living there knew he was the one for them. They named him Mufasa, the Little Lion King. Mufasa was lonely, so his Mom & Dad adopted another Lion King. They named him Simba. The years passed and the Little Lion Kings did everything together, and they loved each other very much. But sadly, one day Simba had to go over the Rainbow Bridge and leave Mufasa behind. His family was heartbroken. Shortly after that, Mufasa was diagnosed with diabetes. Now he has to get an insulin shot everyday. Won't you help bring a smile to Mufasa by going by his page #22006 and leaving him a vote so he can be COTD on Wednesday. Also, the month is running out. Please try to go by every day that's left in the month and vote for hard working Sabrina #11187. Thanks Kitties! Hugs, purrs, and a vote for you!

Do you want to see something cute? Then you need to head over to see Moe C. Monopoli's page #22169. Moe is potty trained, and since no one would believe it unless they saw it, there's a picture posted! Moe is a super sweet kitty who wants to be involved in all the family acitvities! Go by and see what he's been up to, and while you're there, please drop him a vote TUESDAY so he can get his COTD badge on Wednesday. Moe is pushing 1000 votes and no badge yet. Let's fix that! Also, kitties, please don't forget to stop by and leave Sabrina #11187 a vote every day this month for her COTM badge. She truly appreciates each and every vote you've given her! Hugs, purrs, and a vote for you!

When Shadow's Mama brought this sweet kitten home, it followed her every step. Like Mary's Little Lamb, everywhere that Mama went, the kitten was sure to go. After a couple of days, it was decided. Shadow would be the kitten's name. Please give sweet, loving Shadow #41361 a vote today so she can get her COTD badge tomorrow! Also don't forget Sabrina #11187. She appreciates all your votes every day to help her get a COTM badge! Thanks kitties! Hugs, purrs, and a vote for you!

Something is following Tabitha! She doesn't know what it is! She tries to get away from it! But no, it's still following her! She turns around quickly to catch it, and SURPRISE! It's her own tail! Tabitha is always trying to catch her tail, and you can see a picture of this on page #29045! Please go by and leave this beautiful member of the Georgia Gang a vote so she can get her COTD badge on Wednesday. Also, don't forget the hard working Sabrina #11187 needs your vote every day this month to get her COTM badge! Thanks Kitties! Hugs, purrs, and a vote for you!

I am doing better and better. I sit on Mom's lap more but I am still totally emotionally dependent upon my Daddy. Mom plays with us every night with 'Da Bird and it brings back memories of when I had to hunt to eat. I love playing with that thing!

Selket, thank you and your loved ones for congratulating me on being Top Cat! I was so SURPRIZED! Me mum cried leaky tears she was so happy [so, why do they CRY when they are HAPPY?? Beats me!!]. I was too young and too battered to be scared when I came home with me mum. All I've really known is me mum, so actually I am really lucky I didn't have to adjust to anything, really. Me mum's sis [mother to me mum's autistic nephew] thinks I ought to be a therapy cat, too, but I don't know. All I know is when that precious lil boy comes over and smiles when nothing else seems to make him smile, it makes me warm and fuzzy inside, and makes me mum and her sister hug each other! Will miaow again real soon!!!

Come visit me, Katlyn.

Hi Selket! Hang in there with the "two leggers", you'll get used to them. My mama kitty died when I was only 10 days old, and I've had humans caring for me ever since. Although some can be mean, many (including your Mom and Dad) are very loving and gentle with their kitties. Hang in there and visit again soon!!

Selket, You are a great cat! You will get use to your surroundings I am sure!!! I was scared to death when they took me from Wal-Mart, I even bit them!! . But guess what, the hung right on to me they were not letting me go anywhere!! I "Chattered" at them and I hid for a while too. But my humans showed me what it was like to have a good life. They feed me, take me to the vet (I don't like the vet but they say it is for my own good that I go)and love me all the time, I even let them pick me up! In time you will realize that they really are not that bad!! Thank you for visiting me. stop again soon. Onyx

I was very, very brave today. My Aunt and Uncle came over to spend the afternoon with Mom and Dad. They are my Mom's brother and his lady-friend. At first I hid, but they sounded like they might be okay and Dad seemed to really like them. I overheard that they had two cats of their own. Finally, my curiosity got the best of me and I came out to take a peak. Wow! They were eating chicken! Mom's brother even gave me a couple of bites, then Mom and Dad praised me for my bravery. I almost marked Uncle's leg. Maybe next time. I am slowly getting better and better in my daily functioning and my parents are very proud of me.

Tonight has been so fun! Even though she still scares me a bit, Mom played a new (to me) game with us tonight. Instead of laser-tag she opened the front closet and pulled out a clicky-mouse attached to a fishing pole. She called it fishing for kitties and ran us all over the apartment, especially up and down our kitty towers. It was so much fun! She is trying to teach me to jump but I am a four-on-the-floor kitty. She played with us for an extra five minutes on top of the usual 10 - I just didn't want it to end. Now all three of us are having a snack and/or resting. Oh, and tonight's dinner (tuna & egg) was REALLY good too. It has been a good day.

10/2/06 afternoon: It is cold and dark in our apartment. I really miss my Dad and kind of miss Mom. My sisters (by adoption) are here but they are asleep. I am hiding, but if Dad was here I would be on his lap in a shot. When I curl in his lap, I ram my back/butt into his belly (which is flat and slim) and he makes even more room for me to curl up! Heh, heh, heh.

10/2/06: I was sooo hungry this morning I actually forgot to hide! Dad was up first thing feeding me even though he is sick and has to go to work. I spent the night on the bed between Mom and Dad, occassionally using Mom's nice soft butt as a pin cushion.

9/29/06: This morning was tough for me psychologically. Mom and Dad didn't see me because I spent the entire time hiding. This is regressive behavior for me, but sometimes I don't feel secure unless I'm hiding under the couch or the bed or hiding in my kitty-cube or kitty-igloo, which help to make me feel surrounded and secure. Maybe tonight will be better for me.
