Guest Star: Bamboo

Hi everyone,

Today’s guest post comes from Bamboo and his human companion Lulu!

Meow. I’m sure you must have heard my human talk about me. My name is Bamboo. I think I come up in her everyday conversation (she really loves me, I am the center of her universe, so… Makes sense). Together, we live happily in beautiful, coastal British Columbia. I am currently 2 and a half years old! I am so adorable, check me out: 😛

Well... I've got better photos (see below!)

I want to share with you all the things I enjoy! Life as a cat is full of mystery, and often times I am so busy chasing invisible critters, and getting pet, and self grooming, and eating, and napping, and staring out the window… Have I mentioned I really like ear scratches? Well I really like them. I deserve a lot of ear scratches. Yeah, ear scratches are the best… 

Before I get distracted (there are lots around the house that can distract a cat, let me tell you that!) I must share with you a little bit of my history with my human…:

Everyday is Caturday.
Everyday is Caturday.

It was Spring of 2013. I was 9.5 weeks old, when my human first stepped in the house where I was born. I was scurrying around, climbing up the curtains with my sibling—it was just down to me and my sister (out of 4 of us, the other two—my brothers—were already adopted to new forever homes). Rumor has it that my human originally wanted to pick up the calico kitten—my sister (I think she just wasn’t aware how cute I was)… But my, am I glad she changed her mind when she saw my furry face of awesome! I am glad it all happened the way it did; my human wanted the calico but turns out, my sister had already been ‘claimed’ by another family on their way to meet her, so my human was sad. Then she saw me, a black and grey tabby kitten who looked identical to my (biological cat) mommy. My human heard my momma cat’s owners tell her that I was the last remaining adoptable kitten; I was really energetic and healthy, but because of my very “normal” coat, I was “less desirable” than my siblings (a calico, a tuxedo, and a grey tuxedo). My human fell in love with me, though. She decided every cat of any coat and colour deserves love and snuggles, and there was nothing wrong with my tabbiness! She thought I was adorable, and though she originally wanted a girl kitty, on April 10th, 2013, I came home with her instead. What a twist of fate! But as they say… The best things happen to those who wait. I am awarded with a fantastic human mommy now, because I was the Patient One. 🙂

This photo is golden. It was my first car ride …headed HOME with my human! Apr 10, 2013

Though I was not officially adopted from an SPCA or shelter, I would say that my human had ‘rescued’ me. My siblings and I were an accident and we were too much for my (cat) mommy’s owner, who is an older gentleman and doesn’t have time for kitten shenanigans. We were set up for adoption, and it was the last days before he would had to have brought us to a shelter. Thank goodness for my human to my rescue! Since the day I came home with my human, I’ve been fed premium food, a brand called Nutrience. I threw up Whiskas treats in the car on the first ride home, so now my human gets treats from my vet instead (haha, I am a high maintenance one, but a healthy cat is a happy cat!) Recently, I developed some small crystals in my urine, and it hurt a lot! After some tests at the vet, my human put me on a prescription diet by Science Diet, called C/D for urinary health. First kibbles, but I think I’ve found my most favourite: Science Diet C/D in Ocean Fish, canned food. Mm-mm, good! And now, no more crystals, plus my human says my coat is shinny and soft like a rabbit! …Wait, where’s the rabbit? I am also fixed, tattooed (like my human mommy), and I am microchipped. All fabulous precautions should I get lost! Even though I’m an indoor cat, but better safe than sorry—my human is a practical and a caring individual. And now… Well here I am. 😀

My human loves to capture my silly moments… I will share with you a little ‘photo album’ (some which my human has already blogged about previously).

I am expert in camouflaging. Where’s Waldo?
Occasionally, I’d chill with the rest of my human’s family, outdoors. He’s okay… Children have too much energy for me. *is a hypocrite*
My human’s favourite photo of me. Check out my beautiful lines! “I am beautiful, no matter what they say…”
My human treats me like a king! I am spoiled.
My human caters to almost* all my demands for affection…. *Room for improvement, but I guess she’s a busy bee.
I am fully house trained. I can do everything by myself… I even tuck myself in before bed time.
I celebrate holidays… Yeah, I guess I’m pretty mainstream…
Most of all, I am proud to be my human’s furbaby. My name is BAMBOO! 

Purr-purr for now! I am a curious cat, and I love to meet new people, so it was nice meeting you all! =^_^=

  1. Bamboo you ARE gorgeous. Like your human I came to take home cats of a certain colour and ended up with cats with a more usual colour. But I really like grey tabbies like yourself. Had one (who gave birth to 5 more after 4 weeks). Lovely cats. The mother stayed with us, the kitten went to farms …

  2. Bamboo–you are adorable! And how great is this–my Teemu also had crystals and eats only Science Diet C/D ocean fish! That means any time you and your human want to come by for a visit, you and Teemu can dine together. ps: I do love your Bat Cat photo.

  3. Bamboo you are a beautiful boy ! You look so much like my Chester who I adopted after our eyes met. I already has two cats and wasn’t planning on a third but it was love at first sight. He was the most lovable and sweet boy and I miss him. I can see how much you are loved and so happy you found such a wonderful furever home. 😻
