Mrs. Oz

This is Mrs. OZ, Mrs. Hissy OhneZahn. She came to us - as Rita - a couple of weeks after Anastasia vanished because she was in need of a different home than she lived in and with Anastasia gone we could take another cat in. Anastasia would have made minced meat out of any cat trying to come here... I think the staff thought she could be a companion for me because I felt very lonely without my Anastasia but Mrs. OZ is not a companion cat! The first week she stayed in the space in the ceiling (the staff occupies a VERY old house) and when she encountered me she just hissed. I did not hiss back, I have manners! When she started to spend a bit more time outside the ceiling Emil arrived. Back into the ceiling for another week! And she kept hissing and hissing. At both of us. Hence "Hissy". She also does not have upper canines, we do not know what happened, only that she came like that from the Humane Society many years ago. Hence "OhneZahn" which is German and literally translates "WithoutTooth". She is a very particular cat. She likes to stay by herself and she does not go outside, only to the bottom of the stairs. She does manage to catch little insects there and brings them inside, CRYING loudly for acknowledgment of her superior hunting skills! Emil adores her and does not stop trying to play with her. She does not stop hissing at him. It's a weird relationship! When he comes in (Mrs. OZ mainly stays in the maids place upstairs, Emil mostly sleeps at the butler's place downstairs and comes up in the morning) Mrs. OZ first runs up into the ceiling, just to come back down again almost immediately and approach him until he starts trying to play with her which then makes her able to hiss at him.... I keep out of it!!!! She's a weird one! -Karl

I did NOT agree to the release of this 'pamphlet'! Karl handed this out without my permission!
Not that I mind having my picture published - but I do not think he paints a really favorable picture of myself.
I just like to mind my own business, not everybody is a social butterful like "Mr." Karl.
And who wants little kittens jumping on your back out of the blue?

Mrs. Oz is very pretty and it sounds like she has a bit of an attitude, which I like in a cat : )

Hey, Kat, did you see Kimo & Sabi's bloggie today? Worried Wednesday? Yikes. Do you think Baby Doll Jenna will do that? Did the two older brothers ever try anything like that????

This doesn't have a thing to do with the lovely Mrs. OZ. It's about your tail slide show. I wanted to sign up to be notified when it changes, then discovered I could rate it! I clicked on 5-stars, but when I pressed "enter", it said thank you for voting this 3-stars. Just so you'd know.
It's kinda hard to see all the control buttons in the sidebar. But I loved seeing Sol's tail on there. Thanks, ML

Mrs. OZ is a funny gal, ain't she? I have a cousin Sally who's kinda like that--she likes to roll around on Beans' feets and then hisses at them and then rubs against them and rolls again. Weird.
Your buddy, Jimmy joe

i tried to comment this morning and blogger wouldn't let me. :(

ms. oz has had a very difficult life until now. she has the right to be a bit hissy. but now she has caring and sharing love all around her. perhaps one day she will open her heart to love again. i love happy endings.

Mrs. Oz sure looks pretty with those purple shades. Maybe Emil will get through to her and she'll stop hissing!

Purrrrrrs, China Cat

Well, she is very cute in the outfit, but I don't think that she would go out in something like that!

My brother Persia always wants to go out and he can't. But we still have a lot of fun at home:http://catcast.podomatic.com
