Wild Life Of A Little Monster

Others are scared of me because of all the fun I have. Considered a vigilante by my Eponine.

At Your Service

Stan's toeOn a recent visit to Wayside Waifs I got to meet this super great guy named Stan. I discovered he's a polydactyl. He was totally fascinating. Watching him stroll was a joy as that extra little digit softly made contact with the floor. He almost looked like Charlie Chaplin.

I had visions of him learning to use a BlackBerry, dialing up other kitties on the phone, opening the door to run around outside, playing video games, and any number of other things. One could just hope he'd also learn to run the vacuum to sweep up extra kitty litter that his toe may have pulled from the box, or possibly even scrub the tub. Oh, and if he'd have pancakes ready in the morning and dinner ready at night. That would be saaaweeeeet!

He's still there at Wayside last time I checked. For whatever reason, I'm still him-hawing around trying to find the just-right companion for me. I haven't been writing about my visits there just to not create any false hope. However, I sure am enjoying taking the time to stop by and love on many little monsters.

Trying to see if Stan's toe could make a form like a Cowboy's gun

Cowboy, don't feel the need to keep quiet there on our account. We enjoy your posts, whether they are moving you closer to a new monster or not. (Heck, I'm still laughing over Private Dancer...)

Stan's got wicked cool toes! I peeked at him on Meg's blog a while back. Momma swears I know how to check on my stocks while she's out. I bet Stan could do a lot more than that with that extra tootsie!! LOL!!

Stan is very cute. I bet with that extra toe, if you gave him money and a pocket, he could do the grocery shopping while you were out too! I believe that's what Ralphie was thinking every time he used to steal $10 or $20 from my purse or pockets and hide it under the bed.

Choosing a companion is an arduous task that requires much time and attention.

It took me for-ev-er to decide to live with my Mom.

Take the time you want and keep posting. We like going on the journey with you.

Yes, Miss Mittens is a polydactyl and she is very special. They are supposed to be lucky too. Mom calls her Big Toes. That is how she got her name...Mittens Pollypaws.......she is Mom's calico wonder cat!

When the right one comes along, you'll know. Hoping the right one finds you soon -- s/he'll be in for a great life.

You know, you can still visit the little monsters at Wayside even after you're picked. I stop by the SPCA here periodically and pet the kitties and play with them and take them Sanjee and Boni and Mini's donations of catnip. It's fun to meet new furrpeople. :)

tammara-thanks for checking back on me, reading and reassuring. You're the best.

Edsel-two or three? Really? Oh my!

Derby-I like your idea that Stan could provide more ways to love with those extra toes. And my Ep had been mentioning to me that my shirts and jeans were getting tighter. I think there's likely more of me to love!

Amy-I went to see Stan again last night. Of course saw new ones too. If one convinced they'd clean their own box, I'd take it home on the spot!

timmy-you have stocks?! I'm impressed!

Merlin-your input is much appreciated!

Meezers-Hmmm? Grocery shopping too? Now, that's a thought. If Stan did that too then he'd really be a charmer! Oh, and maybe Ralphie was saving to buy stocks like Timmy.

wm-Stan is a cutie. You're right, he looks just like you!

kukka-maria-you make me feel good. I keep thinking the monsters so far can't decide which one wants to pick me and maybe don't want to pick me yet because they know I'm still sad. But one will eventually, I know it.

Lucky too ... that's good to know, Patches Lady. I bet Miss Mittens is very lucky.

I think you're right, Kelly Cat. A great life it will be. I promise.

Robyn-you are so good to volunteer regularly. It is on my to-do list!

Oh, he's a black cat! Did you know that black cats are less likely to be adopted. I don't want to rush you, but I have my own agenda behind No One Left Behind.

Don't tell anyone, but I went to see him again on Sunday afternoon and looked at his picture on their website tonight.

My Punkin has "thumbs", there is no beating him playing with the feather wand, he slaps it down with those huge paws every time.
