Thursday 28 Feb 08
Today started like any other day, except that our humand dad didn’t put on his green skin today. After lunch we both got put into our PTUs. This was a new experience, we had never both been in PTU at the same time before. We then went in the car and drove for a long time. It was obvious that we were not going to see the vet lady. Mommy sat in the back with us while Daddy sat by the funny round thing that we can’t play with. After a long time we came to a new place. There were nice ladies there and naturally there were fascinated by how cute and wonderful we are. They were sort of like the vet ladies but better, they did not stick anything up our bums. They took us to a room and let us out of our PTUs. It was a proper cat room with lots of places to climb and explore which we did. After a short time our humans left. We are sure they will be back soon.
Friday 29 Feb 08
Well our humans did not come back yesterday but the nice new ladies came and played with us and gave us yummy eats and drinks. We slept together last night in a comfy spot we found. This morning the nice ladies came to feed us again and play with us. Merlin was a bit confused as to where our humans were but Dragonheart explained that they do this sometimes but always come back. We also have each other. Today was a day of exploration as we examined the room from top to bottom There is a very nice big thing that gives off lots of heat, we like it very much. There is a nice litter box, although it does not have a top like ours at home. There is food and water, 2 doors, a big chair with a blanket, 2 windows, lots of places to climb and sleep and our PTUs are still here with blankets from home, along with our sleeping bags from home.
Saturday 1 Mar 08
This is now 2 sleeps here without our humans. Merlin is confused. He wonders if this is our new home. Maybe we will not live with our two humans anymore. Don’t they love us? Dragonheart reassures Merlin that the humans still love us, how could they not, and that they will be back. Dragonheart explains that he had this kind of adventure before. The humans went away for a lot of sleeps but did come back and took him home and everything went back to normal.

Today we really got to know the new human ladies in this new place. They came and fed us again with yummy food that tastes different from what we used to eat but is still very yummy. They also cleaned our litter box which earns them lots of points. Normally only our wonderful Mommy does that. It is strange, Daddy never cleans our pooh, we wonder why? The ladies also played with us lots today and naturally we played with each other, lots of wrestling. There is nowhere in this room where they tell us not to climb or scratch. They don’t say “NO!” Very meow cool.
Monday 3 Mar 08
Today we really started to notice all the other animals nearby. It is just the two of us in our room but we can hear lots of woofies and sometimes see them from our windows. We try to talk to them but it is hard to get a word in with these silly creatures, they hardly ever stop talking long enough for us to say anything. Our voices are also not as loud as theirs and it is hard to get them to hear us, except a couple that are close. Finally we are able to chat with a couple of the nearby woofies. They say that they come here every day to learn stuff but go home at night. They sounds very strange to us, although the going home part sounds nice. They try to explain about the things they are learning to do for humans, get stuff, walk where humans tell them, stop when humans tell them. Don’t these silly creatures understand that the humans are supposed to do what we tell them, not the other way around? Woofies sure are strange.

Another sleep without our humans, very sad. Today started normal enough but did not really go all that well. Dragonheart and Merlin normally get along pretty well but after several days spent mostly alone we are staring to get on each others nerves. When the nice ladies bring us food, Merlin eats so fast that sometimes there is not enough left for Dragonheart, Merlin is so pushy and doesn’t understand sharing. He also wants too wrestle all the time. Wrestling some is good but too much is not fun. Dragonheart is starting to think that Merlin is a little nuts and a bit of a pain in the bum. Merlin thinks Dragonheart is boring and no fun. We both spend some of today sulking on opposite sides of the room and we don’t sleep together tonight, this is the first time that has happened.
Wednesday 5 Mar 08
We started getting along better again this morning after a good nights sleep, although Dragonheart still thinks Merlin is a bit crazy, of course what kitten isn’t? He also seems to be getting bigger very quickly, not surprising since he eats like a big woofie. He used to be easier to handle when he was smaller. For some reason we both decide to spend much of today relaxing inside our PTUs. They are much nicer when the doors are left open and we can go in and out anytime we want. The nice ladies think it is very cute when they bring our food. They also like it when we climb up on their shoulders. They say it means we are like birdies, what a strange idea, we look nothing like birdies. After eating all the food, which is not as much as we would like, we go back in our PTUs. The smell of our blankets reminds us of our humans. They have been gone a really long time now and we really miss them. We sleep together again tonight and dream of our humans.
Thursday 6 Mar 08
Today was very exciting, we almost got to go outside. It was very warm, we could feel the sun through the windows and were heavily involved in sun worshipping when the nice ladies came to feed us. They talked about taking us outside in the garden but seemed unsure if it was okay. They have never been with Sphynx before and our humans had told them we could only go outside if it was really warm. We thought it was okay, we agreed on this. Dragonheart has been outside before when it was warm and said it is fun although it can be a bit scary. Merlin has never really been outside and wanted to go. We even called out to our woofie friends and thought we could get to see them up close, and maybe even smell them, that would have been fun. Finally though the nice ladies decided that we should stay inside, very sad. They did play with us extra long today, very cool, and brought us enough food, even for Merlin. So we did not get to go outside after all, but the very idea has Merlin very excited and looking forward to the day when he will finally play outside for the first time.
Friday 7 Mar 08
We discovered something new and exciting today. While sitting by the windows taking in the sun and occasionally trying to talk to those silly woofies who were learning new ways to do what humans tell them (unbelievable!) we suddenly say two huge animals walk by with humans on top of them. It was incredible, the humans were not carrying them, they were carrying (sort of) the humans! These humans looked smaller than the ones we are used to but still, they must be a lot heavier than any cat. The animals were clearly not cats and they were not birdies. They looked vaguely like woofies but were much bigger than any woofie we had ever seen. They sort of looked like Snap (the horse that belongs to Kaze's Lap Lady). Confusing but exciting. We tried to call out to them but they were too far away and could not hear us. One of our woofie friends confirmed that they were indeed horses and that they are very big and strong animals (they must be to carry humans) but are also very friendly. We really hope we get to meet one of these horses up close some day and get to sniff their bums like good friends.
Saturday 8 Mar 08
The nice ladies seemed a bit upset with us today. After they cleaned our litter box (wonderful nice ladies) they noticed that we had made pretty poo art on the floor last night. They didn’t seem happy about this and wiped it all away. I guess that they don’t appreciate Sphynx poo art any more than our old humans do. Sphynx make poo art by dragging our bums across the floor or blanket or other surface after we have used the litter box and there is still wet poo on our bums. It is really a lot of fun and we can be very creative but humans must not like art. This seems very odd because they seem very fond of art on their walls. Our old humans and this new place both have lots of pictures on the walls. Oh well, who can understand humans.
Sunday 9 Mar 08
Today was just a really lazy day. It was sunny and we spent lots of time lying in front of the windows. We chatted with our woofie friends a bit and saw the horses again, from far away of course. The nice ladies played with us as always but we both were less energetic than usual today. It has been a really long time since our old humans left and we are beginning to think this really is our new home. Even Dragonheart is beginning to wonder. If so it would not be that bad. It is nice here and the nice ladies look after us but it is nowhere near as good as our home with our Mommy. We don’t get to sleep with our humans or sit on Mommy all day and the room is a lot smaller than our old house. We really miss our humans, at least we have each other.
Monday 10 Mar 08
Yay!! Our humans came back today. It was just another day until suddenly the door opened and in came our Mommy and Daddy humans. At first we were so surprised that we were not really sure it was them. But after a couple of good sniffs we were sure. Yay! We went back in our PTUs, said goodbye to the nice ladies and got back in the car. Mommy sat with us and petted us on the whole drive home, it was wonderful. Then we were back in our home and running to check everything and sure enough everything was right where we left it. Life is wonderful. We sat on Mommy, ran around like crazy ad slept with our humans again, life is back to normal and our adventure is over.
