Hi y'all! For those of you
who are not familiar with me, let me properly introduce myself.
My name is Chaos and I am a chocolate point Siamese. I live with
my two brothers, Sealy and Deco, in a little sleepy town in Georgia
where the warm southern breezes whisper through the pine trees,
and the most excitin' thing to happen in a day is to watch the
squirrels chase each other round and round the butternut trees
Fellow felines lend me your
ears, we have a problem at our house, and it has become very vexatious
to our human Bobbie. In fact we are afraid if we don't find a
way to alleviate this situation, the poor thing will go round
As you all are well aware,
being feline and knowing that we are of a superior species, our
superior intelligence and, feline intuitiveness has always kept
us on the forepaw of perplexing problems. I am quite sure that
if we put our collective intellect together we should be able
to come up with a solution. Our cousin Cosmos is a houseguest
at our home. He is really quite a good fellow, as houseguests
go...but he has a problem, he whizzes! Although whizzing is a
part of our natural scheme of things it doesn't bode well with
humans...especially in their house. My brother Deco likes to play
the role of intimidator, and Cozzie (as he is affectionately called),
is petrified of him. Which eggs Deco on. It has got to the point
that Cozzie is marking parts of the house as his territory. His
thinking is that Deco will leave him alone within his boundaries.
Unfortunately Deco doesn't observe boundaries in his own domain.

At our house we don't have
a yellow brick road to follow, it's more like a yellow stream.
I tried to solve the situation by giving it a thorough spraying
myself...Bobbie caught me performing my good deed and literally
screeched at me. "Stop that NOW! What do you think you are
doing!" Human gratitude, it really leaves a lot to be desired.
Off in a flash she went, back she came with more spray bottles
then I could shake my tail at...Odor eaters, pet odor eliminators,
Febreze and last but not least a female feline pheromones spray
that was suppose to end all male cats spray problems...Ah, Silly
woman! She has been running around the house, with a spray bottle
in each hand like the Wicked Witch of the West...or is it the
I must tell you that between her sprays and Cossie's, there is
definitely an unpleasant odor in the house.
We have tried to talk to Cossie,
but he goes into a catatonic state when we mention whizzes.
Any information to eliminate this ordeal, and restore our domain
to its peaceful co-existence would be greatly appreciated.
Love at First
Y'all have heard me speak of my cousin
Cosmos who has been our houseguest for the past three years. He
is finally back in his own domain on Daniel Island in Charleston,
Now Cousin Cosmo's father is our grandfather
Trouble on our mother's side, which makes our mother Cosmos' half
sister from another litter. This makes Cosmos our cousin, Ah think
Ah know that can be very confusing and, if you think about it
long enough, either gives you a headache, or makes purrfect sense.
Oh my, Ah am digressing here. To get on
with my tail, Cosmos was not sure that he wanted to leave us;
but, when Miss Wendy and Mr. Don showed him his new digs, he thought
he had died and gone to kitty heaven. Cosmos was one very ecstatic
Cosmos tells us that he is living in a
fabulous place that over looks the Wando River. He says he is
living grand and loves the screened in porch where occasionally
an unsuspecting Gecko or two wanders in and makes his day! Ah
can't speak for the Geckos and whether he makes their day for
they may wind up an endangered species if Cosmos stays on the
porch too long!
Our Cousin also mentioned that an alligator
lives in the creek about fifty feet from his screen porch. There
are signs saying, "Beware of the Alligator!"
Cosmos and Wendy
checking for alligators
The alligator is allowed to stay there
until he is six feet long. When he outgrows his welcome, the Animal
Control Officers will come and place him in another habitat
What Ah want to know is, who keeps tabs on that big old gator,
checkin' to see if he has grown out of his homestead? Ah surely
am glad that I'm not the one, with the measuring tape
to wrestle him away from his home sweet home! Whew! My breath
is wearing short pants just thinking about it!
Cousin Cosmos won't have to worry about
us coming to visit him. Ah myself wouldn't set one chocolate paw
neah where any big, old, nasty, gator lived no matter how grand
and picturesque it is! Ah don't know if our cousin knows it or
not, but, Geckos are distant cousins of Alligators!
Cosmos may some day come face to face, with one big mouthed, sorely
hisst off, ornery distant relative
Ah wonder if I should
warn my dear cousin?
While Cosmos was living the high life, his only problem was that
he was alone; and, although he enjoyed being master of all he
surveyed, he missed that "Catly Camaraderie" that he
enjoyed at our house.
Now, Sealy and I got along famously with
our cousin Cosmos. Unfortunately, my brother Deco was another
Deco intimidated Cossie so badly that it led to territorial
markings around the house that got way out of paw and led to some
mighty powerful "Whiz Wars!"
In fact, on a damp day standing by the sliding glass doors, Ah
swear Cosmos has stopped by for a visit.
Pardon me as Ah am wandering again and
need to get back to my story
A few weeks ago, Miss Wendy
and Mr. Don brought Cossie a marvelous surprise. As she turned
the key in the entrance door, Cossie ran to meet her. When the
door opened, there was Miss Wendy with an exquisite blue point
Siamese kitten in her hands. She knelt down and placed the kitten
on the floor facing Cosmos. Sapphire eyes met sapphire eyes. Miss
Wendy said, "Cosmos, say hello to Finn, (short for Finnias)
your new little friend."
Cosmos is a very friendly and loving fellow
who has an unusually musical voice for a Siamese. He immediately
greeted the kitten with a soft mew. The kitten walked right up
to him and Cosmos began to purr. Finn took to Cosmos right away
and vise versa. From that point on it was "Love at first
sight" and they have been inseparable ever since.
We too are pleased and very happy for Cousin
Cosmos and his new little friend, Finn. We all thought it was
most unusual that Cossie would accept Finn right on the spot but,
then again, Cosmos is always such a sweet natured and amiable
How else would he ever have got along with US!!?
