Honey -- The Neeble Cat

Name:   Honey

Birthday:  September 15, 2003

Came to live in Cats Cove:  June, 2004

Favorite Treat/Toy: Soft red blankies

Hi everyone and welcome to Sweatin with Sevaun.  Hope you are all doing great today.  I am so looking forward to today’s workout although I’m a little tired from last night.  We were all looking out the window and saw that Dr. Amanda was visiting.  Some of us ran and hid.  Not me of course.  The last time I ran some shingles fell off the roof so I’ve given up the whole running thing.  Anyway that stinker Soy Boy was nowhere to be found for hours.  But we found him hidden in the linen closet.  What a wimp.  I’m exhausted looking for him for so long.

Well, today we have a special guest, direct from Cats Cove it’s Honey, everyone’s favorite tuxie!  Oh, Honey, I’m home!

Thanks Sevaun.  Well, I’m the only tuxie in the Cove so I’m always ready for the big dance.  I was born September, 15 2003.  I came to live in Cats Cove June 24, 2004.  My best friends in the whole wide world are Jonah and Simone.  Us three are always doing things together, especially sleeping.  Jonah is nice to cuddle next to.  Sometimes I don’t like people.  I can get in certain moods and just don’t want any people to come near me.  But when I’m having a good day, I like to do something that very few cats here in the Cove do:  I like to climb up on people’s shoulders to get pets and love.

One of the volunteers once whispered to me “if any of the other cats tried this, they would break my shoulder.”  I saw Peggy in a sling the other day so I’m not sure if Sevaun tried that with her.  I hope not, I like Peggy very much.

I really like Tuesdays, because my friend Martha always comes with Brenda and Katie and they always give me special love pats.

I love to be petted, but I have really bad skin.  It just gets so irritated that I can’t stop licking myself.  I know I shouldn’t do it, but I just can’t stop it and before I know it, I’ve licked off all my hair from my legs and tummy.  That’s when momma Jacci takes out this big neeble.  A neeble is better than a needle, which hurts  so much.  Momma Jacci says the neeble won’t hurt as much and it doesn’t.  But I still yell out when she gives it to me.  I find if I scream really loud, momma Jacci gives me extra hugs and kisses.  After she gives me the neeble, I don’t feel the urge to lick anymore and then my hair grows back.  But after awhile, I get the urge again.

Oliver says I shouldn’t complain about my hair and skin issues, but sometimes I can’t help it.  But all my friends, the volunteers always come and ask me how my skin is for the day.  They look after me very carefully.

I don’t know if you’ve ever seen our home, Cats Cove, but there is this little runway between our home and the Feline Fieldhouse.  I love to sleep on the top of that.  I’ve tried forever to make friends with the barn cats, but they just ignore me.  I would like to get to know them better, but they’ve given me the paw on more than one occasion.

Jonah and me like to play this game where we climb up on the table here and spin round and round until we get so dizzy we stumble and then fall asleep.  It’s a lot of fun.  I really like soft beds and am always looking for the purrfect blankie.  I like the red ones best.  I think they go well with my coloring.

Well, that’s all about me.  I do have a tip for all you cat owners out there.  Always make sure you check your cat for fleas and use flea prevention, but just because we scratch or lick ourselves doesn’t mean we have fleas, we just might have really sensitive skin like I do.  So when you can, take your cat to the vet and make sure you say they should give your cat a neeble, not a needle.  Neeble’s are way better.  Now back to you Sevaun.

Thanks Honey.  I don’t much like needles or neebles, but I guess you’re right neebles are better.  Ok, so let’s get to exercising.  Now, everyone sit up, now turn around once.  OK, sit down.  Now back up.  Turn around again.  Now sit down.  Roll to the left and stretch.  Wow, that was great.  Well I hope everyone gets a good night’s sleep.  This is Sevaun from Cats Cove reminding you to:

Keep it real cats, and make sure you've licked your hoomin today!
