Me---I am an old neighborhood cat---I just roam around--
But I have a story to tell---
Once in  awhile one of us "outside" kitties get a bit of "good luck"--
and that is what this episode is about---

the story begins about 7 years ago--
a man got a kitten--then a wife and then some kids--
SO--he decided the kitty made too many for inside and put the cat outside--
don't understand "Humans" why do they feel we are there "best buddy" one minute and then the next they shove us out the door and forget about us--Oh they are "good" once in awhile and throw some food our way--but--

then one of my neighbor hood friends like I said "got lucky"--
And you remember Di's friend Mary???
Well--two of Mary's granddaughters live in NC and they got tried of seeing my poor buddy outside all the time and decided to bring her in---
they originally named my friend--ODC--for old dirty cat!!!!!!!

ODC was a very friendly and loving cat--
but with one problem--
she wanted to be "Queen" of the household and this household already had three inside kitties!!!!
so this created a problem--eventually Nikki moved back up North near Di with her two kitties--But Amy is staying down in NC for a while longer--and Amy has her own kitty named "Squirrel"--but ODC still was not happy and poor Squirrel would run and hide--the two of them did not share the same space--So Amy decided she had to find ODC a new home and she emailed Di about adopting my friend---
so now my friend has a new home and I will let ODC finish the story for now!!!!

Hi all you blog friends of "Di's" or rather my New mom----
I am a very lovable kitty and I just love humans--you noticed I did say "humans" here--I am not fond of other cats at all--
I am 7 years old as of last month and have not had a bad life--just not a real steady home life and so I am looking forward to this new home!!!!  Though I will miss Amy--she did work at spoiling me some!!!
I also like to do this--
So one of the first things I explored at Di's house was where she is keeping the food stash--
She does have a food stash and not just a fabric stash--I HOPE!!!!!!
And I out smarted my new mom already---I let her get the camera--but then I jumped out of the closet before she could get all of me!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But then a little later she needed a picture for the office file so I could stay here--so I was a good girl--
and I let her take this one!!!
OH and I do have a new name now besides ODC---
Amy gave it to me--
My name is Cameo--that is a pretty name--don't you think?????
I am a gray calico with alot of orange coloring on me!!!
And I have found the best seat in the house already----
I found "mom's" sewing chair!!!!
I also helped Mom remember one of the reason's that "us" animals are fun to be around-- with all the newest of traveling--being in a new place last night--then coming to a new place today--well---it just all got to me and everything I ate for the last couple days decided it wanted "out"---
I was proud of mom--she did not panic--she just cleaned it all up and keep asking me if I was alright!!!!!
Then she got in her sewing chair and I curled up in the wicker rocker by her--I slept for an hour or so--and she stitched!!!!!
I wonder what tomorrow will bring?????
HOPE there is no more car rides involved--you humans can have your cars!!!

So long for tonight--
Hugs, Di and Cameo
