Mira

Mira was given to me by a former co-worker. She was about six or seven months old when I got her. She was very small and not yet spayed. I found out later she had worms as well, which accounted for her small size. Well, three trips to the vet and a nice chunk of change later, she is now a happy, healthy, cat.

Mira is a black cat with a tiny patch of white on her lower belly. She has yellow eyes. I now own a "basement cat" as seen on the LOL Cats website. Her favorite toys are a laser pointer, a turbo track, and any piece of cardboard she can shred/chew/mutilate. Shortly after I got Mira, Mom bought her some catnip mice. They lasted about two days before she "killed" them. I also found out the hard way that catnip is capable of inducing heat in female cats... I bought her a toy that was a stuffed fish with feathers for a tail tied to a stick with a piece of string. It lasted one night. I'm still finding feathers around my apartment. :)

She has this odd habbit of sitting at the foot of my chair and staring at me while I'm using my computer or watching TV. I think she just wants attention. Though, she sometimes starts to creep me out. Is she plotting my demise?

Mira is a great hunter, she caught a mouse that must have hitched a ride when I moved into my apartment. I actually felt sorry for the mouse!

We definately keep eachother entertained. She sometimes ends up lying on her back, with her legs in the air, and just dozes off like that! She is the first cat I have seen in person to do this. I've seen lots of pictures of other cats do this, but I always thought that they would not stay that way for long, or it was just a lucky shot with a camera. I sometimes see her laying like that, and I ask her "Are you quite comfortable?" Which she answers by turning over, looking at me and saying "Mrrow?"

She is always getting into stuff. I installed catches that keep cabinet doors closed in my apartment to keep her out of the cabinets and to stop the endless "Bang, tap, tap, tap, tap" in the middle of the night caused by her trying to paw the doors open. Often, I will hear rustling or something hit the floor and I walk into the room, look at her and ask "What are you doin'?" I'm beginning to believe that she thinks that is her name. And of course, in classic cat fashion, she sits up, wraps her tail around her paws looks at me and meows as if to say "I wasn't doing anything."
