Connor Cloud


This is Connor munching down on a cupcake that just happened to fall off his Mom's desk.  Really, it just fell down.  Connor didn't give it any help at all.  Connor is five years old and lives with his two sisters, Dazey and Jesse.  Connor has been living with them for almost five years, but Jesse still hisses at him.  Connor was born the runt of a litter on a farm.  He lived with his first Dad for about six months, then came to live at his forever home.  His first Dad had him completely declawed because, as a kitten, he climbed up people.  Connor's first Dad just didn't understand kittens at all.  Connor is very happy now.  He loves nip and feather toys and even the two-legged kitten who arrived about a year ago.  He even let the two-legged kitten pet him a while ago, though he didn't like it much.  Connor has learned to climb over the baby gates and sometimes teases the two-legged kitten by sitting just out of reach on the other side of one of the gates.  He also likes to tease Jesse just a little.  Unlike his two sisters, who like to go outside on harnesses, Connor doesn't like the outside much at all and will bolt back inside the house if he hears a noise.  He never strays more than two feet from the door.  Connor likes to eat bread, but only if his Mom feeds it to him by hand.  He will not eat it off the floor.  He will steal food off of a plate, even food he doesn't like.  It's just the thrill that he's after.

                                  Connor Cloud likes to eat bread,
                                  But only if it is hand-fed.
                                         A cupcake he'll eat,
                                         If it lands at his feet.
                                  He'll steal off your plate, even though he's well fed.

Connor is really special.
This is my very first time to know a cat who loves cupcake~!
How special~!

Cat can't recognize the taste of sweet, so human always need to help them control this part~~ Hehehe, I guess Connor could eat sweet naturaly~

We like that way the cupcake just 'happened' to fall off the desk! The limerick is great and captures Connor's love of food nicely.

Connor sounds like he has quite the personality. I'd love to see his interaction with the two legged cat.

How silly. All kittens climb humans. That's normal. I know what it's like to have things fall off the table by themselves. That happens alot around here!
