Birth-Caturday

leave a comment »


Caturdays are celebratory days for cats and cat guardians (that’s me and my wife). Not that ownership is a derogatory or demeaning terminology, but we’re very appreciative of having our furbabies arounds and quite thankful to have them in our lives while taking good care of them as they take care of us.

January 12, 2013 marks the day that our Copernicus turns one years old. We found him in March of last year a little after his two brothers were adopted as we were arriving at Berkeley Humane. He really has given us a lot of joy, comfort, love, and laughter. And, he’s recently learned (without our training or asking) to jump on our backs and hang out. It’s quite hilarious. Add it to his quirks, I guess.

Happy Birthday, ‘Perni…you are, and forever will be, my buddy guy.

Our Copernicus recently turned 10 months old. So much happiness has happened since he arrived in our home. Here’s a quick look at the cuteness suprema! He reminds us a lot of our cat, Cafe con Leche, who passed away earlier this year. He’s never going to replace her and her wonderful spirit, but he is full of character, charisma, and cuteness.

These were taken a week after he came into our home. We were invited to our friends’ house to have a viewing party. Paola and I thought it was a good idea to put a bell on him just in case he decided to hide. However, around these two photos of him in the kitchen, about 12 people were standing by, eating and mingling. The oven was on and he couldn’t help but nestle himself next to it. He does this now when our oven is on…evidence of him doing that to come soon.

The images below are of him recently growing into his comfort zone. He wasn’t able to jump onto the credenza two months ago…and I knew that once he was able to, that was going to be the end of the world. He’s found a great spot on top of the airport device (of course, it’s nice and warm).

One creepy, but very cute thing he does now is stand behind the tv, on top of the airport, and looks at us through the mirror. He hides, then peeks…he even does it when he jumps into the tub and watches us behind the shower curtains (queue stalker music from Jason).

Copernicus is like every cat. Lasers are intriguing to them. But I never saw this coming until last night. We usually play laser with them. And just run the laser up and down the floor and in circles, but when I began to go back and forth with the laser THAT quickly, the moment became clear, VIDEO NOW!

We love calling him stupid or stups sometimes because the fact is, he’s too cute to be stupid! Doesn’t make sense, but that’s our buddy guy!

Enjoy!

We do have another cat, Jhumpa, who’s usually hiding…and up until recently, one of our friends believed Copernicus (pictured above) was our sole fur-baby. This littel guy seems more docile and camera friendly most of the time.

We did laundry the other day and this cat just couldn’t stop jumping into the hamper to play. Maybe it’s a sign that he wants to be laundered?

Copernicus the Cat

leave a comment »


Back in March, after Cafe Con Leche passed away, we were sure that there’s no way we were ready for a new cat. We thought that we needed time to adjust and for our Jhumpa to have all of our love…we decided to go into Berkeley East Bay Humane to test out the waters, and boy did we get wet!

This little guy, Copernicus, is a brown tabby, and was the last one of three brothers that morning to get adopted. He is the runt of the litter. Initially, I didn’t want to hold him while we were there, and being there conjured up a lot of nostalgia and emotion. But I gave in and as soon as I held him, I thought, “his name is Copernicus…” (kind of like in the movie Fight Club mantra), and he wouldn’t stop purring.

We brought him home that day and gave him a lot of time to acclimate. And allowed Jhumpa to test him out as well (didn’t realize how sensitive this process was until now, check it!). Gradually within two weeks, she was “okay” with it. Now, a month and a half later, she’s still hissing at him, but we witnessed the first licking and grooming Jhumpa displayed. She was loving our little Copernicus. Heart melted for both of us very quickly.

In the slideshow below, you can get a sense of how cute Copernicus looks and how little this guy is…and Jhumpa has really accepted him by letting him sleep next to her…

Needless to say, after the kitten scratches, sleepless nights, we are both very glad we made that trip to the Berkeley Humane.

RIP Cafe (we still miss you dearly…)
