Our almost cat-astrophic painting night!

NOTE: Pic is not actually Gatsby
(Although similar!)

In order to avoid a “cat-astrophy” Gatsby was sent to time out for the first time.

Phi Sigma Pi friends Danie and Bri came over for a painting night around 8 pm. We scattered all of our paint supplies across the living room coffee table and went to work.

All was going well until Gatsby became jealous of our canvases, which were stealing away the spotlight.

Needless to say, Bri declared Gatsby to be a “rabid non-rabbit”. Soon, his restless and rambunctious behavior was out of control. We all became his enemies (but especially Bri for undisclosed purposes).

After Gatsby was sent to the cage, the night was filled with talking, bonding, and episodes of My Strange Addiction.

Gatsby, we hope you learned your lesson!

Gatsby loves food...and the fresh breeze from the refrigerator

My cousin Brad called me today to talk about his future trip to Orlando. While I was enveloped in the conversation, I decided to multitask and help Rachel clean out the refrigerator. For some reason, food tends to spoil much too quickly in our apartment. The food we find is always a suprise.

However today, our suprise took form as our cat.

While on the phone, I was unaware that sneaky Gatsby decided to jump inside.
When I went back a few seconds later to put more food away, Gatsby was glaring back at me from the second shelf.

What makes the refrigerator so appealing to this cat? Do we not supply the kitten with enough air conditioning in this hot summer weather? Or does he just love cooking as much as we do?

We may never know!

Can't get enough? View video footage of the event here: Kitten in Fridge know you want to!

This isn't a monkey, it's a kitten! Meet the Grey Gatsby...

I wasn't home when Rachel found him- or should we say "her".
Our future kitten was found alone in the parking lot of our apartment complex at three weeks old.
Rachel was quick to its rescue- bringing it in and nursing it to health.
She called the baby kitten Adelaide, later to be renamed Gatsby after something unexpected popped up.

Now, the grey Gatsby is living the college life at the University of Central Florida.
He is small at 2 lbs but is quick to jump to the top of our kitchen table.
In his spare time, he enjoys rummaging through our laundry, chasing laser pointers, and the cool breeze of the refrigerator (seriously, once he’s in, he won’t get out).

When it comes to cats, we’re both first timers. In our hometown, Rachel owns a Maltese named Emma. I own three brothers and a sister. We’re both excited for our new furry roommate and look forward to sharing stories of growth.

PS: I will try to share as many photos of Gatsby as possible, yet due to his ninja-photo-dodging skills, they may be sparse.
