Boni
























Boni Maroni wandered up onto the back deck while we were building a storage shed. She was so skinny that my mother started singing the song "Boney Maroney" and the name stuck. Boni didn't care. She adopted us anyway. At first she was going to be an outside cat, but with her big eyes and sweet disposition that didn't last long. Almost before we knew it, she had moved in, made herself at home, and was no longer as "skinny as a stick of macaroni." Boni is still a sweety unless you try to take a dairy product from her. She's the peacemaker of the House of the (Mostly) Black Cats, and Tuxedo gun moll to her Tuxie gangster, Edsel. She happily wears an apron and serves "Russian-less White Russians" (milk) at cat parties. Boni is quite content as long as she has someone to snuggle, a warm place to snooze, and occasional dairy treats. -Robyn

Good Morning Boni! It's good to see you here as Kat's Cat of the Day! You are a beauty and you sound as if you're the perfect little hostess, a cat who knows what she wants and how to get it, and one tough Momma! It's great to wake up to this special girl today!

Good Morning All!

Boni, you are a very purrtiy girl. I like Jess was thinking your name was "bonnie", but now I too know it is not. I love your lil white marking on your mouth area. Your is the opposite of Taps. Yours is white and his is white.

Fanks yall. Even the vet techs try call me "Bonnie" until Dr. Z. laughs and tells them I'm "Boney". He thinks it's very funny. He warned Mom that the name Boni wouldn't fit for long, but it stuck anyway. I like it because I have my own song. :) It's an OLD song from when Grandma was a youngster, though. And I agree I'm very lucky to have such a good furever home.
Purrrrrrrs,
Boni Maroni

That picture on the left is just gorgeous. I fell in love with a kitty at PetSmart over the weekend who looks very much like pretty Boni, except his fluffy white bib furs were even longer and, instead of the white spot on the cheek, his was a little white stripe down the nose. I just love fluffy tuxies! His name was Pablo, he's 8 years old, and he spent an hour curled up in my lap being petted and brushed. Boni, would you like me to send you an almost identical brother?

Boni, it sounds like you give a great party. Your site has hosted a lot of great get togethers so you are probably trained to be a great hostess. So glad to see you on Kat's cat of the day. You just tell your Mom you know how to make yourself at home.
