Happy Birthday to my Little Miss

April 2nd, 2008, 08:50 AM
When I first brought Oksana home, I'd had Vlad for a little over a month. I wasn't sure if I could love her as much as I loved him. I felt guilty for several weeks because of this. Then one day a friend came over and she was just playing with Vlad. She told me she liked Oksana, but her favorite was Vlad. I was hurt, I looked at my girl and realized I did love her, just as much as Vlad. I had an epiphany that day.

She's no longer my tiny little lap kitty. If she sees you try to pick her up, she makes a run for it and she doesn't like to be held for too long. She will only allow you to pet her when SHE's in the mood. When Vlad and Maks try to play with her she responds with a hiss and swatting, and she seems to take pleasure in bullying Kiska.

But, I adore her. She's perfectly comfortable off on her own somewhere, yet now and then she sits next to Vlad and licks his head and puts her little paw around his neck. She chases Maks and plays with him, and once in a while does the same with Kiska. More and more I see she maybe be the one who really runs things.

I love her dearly and she often is the subject of the loveliest pictures. I'm glad I decided to bring her home and not one of her siblings. That 2 pound kitty who was huddled in the corner of a cage, that couldn't take her eyes off of me is nobody's pushover. She's a small delicate girl, just don't piss her off:D

So Happy Birthday my sweet girl, my Little Miss, my Unrepentant Diva, my Oksana. You are a year old today and may I have many many many more with you in my life. (

Here she is trying to eat the camera cord.

I love the look on her face here.

This one I took in my room. I like it because I love her profile and it's kind of artsy.

Happy Birthday Oksana!! :candle: :party:

I bet she does rule the roost, she has that 'look' in her eye, of surveying her subjects.

Thanks for the well wishes to my girl everyone. Everybody got a nice special tuna dinner.

Happy Birthday Little Miss! :candle: Hope you had a good day plaing with your brothers and sisters! She sure is cute! Her behaviour reminds me of my littel girl Tabitha! dont get me wrong she has the brotherly bond ! BUT she is very much her own personality! sitting behind the scenes taking it all in! a loner at times and a NIGHTHAWK too! we all go to sleep and I swear she is guarding the house! I can get up in the middle of the night and she will be wide awake sitting somewhere??

Thery have such personalities eh? I know I will never have 2 again like I have now...thats for sure....there are no two cats the same!

Winston, that's Oksana to the T!

She's the background girl for sure. When you say someone is a people watcher, she's a kitty watcher LOL.

And in the middle of the night if I get up to go to the bathroom, sure enough she shows up.

For a long time I thought it was Vlad who ran the place, but I get the feeling Oksana lets Vlad THINK he's running the show:laughing:

I can tell you that all of mine have different personalities and I love that. No one can tell me all cats are the same, because anyone that does has never had a cat in their life.

How funny! I am reading your reply and Tabitha just got the zoomies! She ran in the computer room and started to dig on the carpet!! Do yours ever do that where they dig with there fron paws a mile a minute on something?
Oh now its her time for a bath! shes hilarious!


April 2nd, 2008, 07:51 PM
Yep, that happens here all the time. What's really funny to me is, they'll be going a mile a minute, then just STOP and start licking some body part, then start up all over again.:laughing:

I have a rug that has little pieces all sticking out because they dig, lie down and pull themselves across it, sharpen their claws. I'm glad I didn't pay a lot for it because they're making mincemeat out of it.:D

Happy Birthday little one. I hope you had a great day!
ancient - I have one of those carpets too. Once all of the kitties have been fixed and are back outside they will be getting the carpet too. I need to replace it now. :D They have way too many snags in it for it to be fixed. Silly kitties.

I'm sorry I missed it :sad: ......

A Belated to you, Oksana !!!

Thanks for the birthday wishes for my girl guys. She had a nice day. She got some extra kisses and cuddles, which of course she was none too happy about:laughing:, and she got an extra helping of tuna.

I'm late, I'm late, I'm late ....

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the very Regal Oksana :thumbs up

(tried for a tuna color, lol)

I know about the rugs ... lucky for me, the one they masacre is tightly woven out of some solid material and will not get torn :frustrated: and I hate it :yell: I so wish it would get torn to bits, but noooo! No such luck.

It's so funny though, they can stand still (or sit) and start running quite sudenly, but they're running in one spot like a cartoon :laughing: and then suddenly it's as if they put themselves into gear and zoooom, gone!

:laughing::laughing::laughing: I see that every night. Between the tile downstairs and the laminate upstairs they're constantly doing this. It actually looks cute. They'll be chasing each other and try to make a sharp turn and slide with their little feet running in place.

April 3rd, 2008, 10:56 AM
Heheheh yeah, and when they hit the carpet downstairs, they actually trip and tumble, it's not slippery :eek: :laughing: :laughing: too funny. Who needs TV with cats ?

April 3rd, 2008, 02:53 PM

April 3rd, 2008, 06:20 PM
Thank you. She's grown to be a very lovely cat.
