Ode to PJHD

Peter Jovi Harvey Dent Clark.
It may seem like a long and obnoxious name to you, but it is with pride that my cat accepted the name given to her.

Peter = friend of Piper (Natalies's dog)
Jovi = Buddy's girlfriend (from ELF, and Lynne's dog is Buddy)
Harvey Dent = Two Face (just look at her face!)
Clark =family name
The first part of her life is a mystery to me. It was a mere year ago that she stumbled into my life. Let's reminisce...

Here's a pic of her right after I rescued her from the evil dungeon, also known as The Pound.
She was so tiny!

Nowadays, tiny, she is not. But she's not fat either. With a life mostly committed to sleeping and housing fleas, she isn't as fat as she could be. Playing fetch helps. So does wrestling.

Anyway, back then I was just missing my kitty back home and I thought it would be a nice gesture to get a new one who was in need a good home, because I had a good home.

I went with my seester, Natalie, to pick a nice kitty out of the lot.

And guess who ran up to the cage gate and started purring and pawing the door and stretching towards me??? You got it, PJHD. She was unaware of her name then, but she knew that I was her mom.

She has always loved getting right up in my face. She still does it today. I make these videos on facebook called WebKam and she is one of the stars, well the only other star besides me. :)

She's just like her mom though; she loves the spotlight!

She and I used to be much closer before a certain someone came into both of our lives.


I started spending more time with him than with her and she started to like him more than me! You would think that she would despise this man who had taker her mother's time and concentration away from her, but no. Just because he plays with her all the time and fills her bowl when it's empty and cradles her the way she likes...ugh.

I can't blame her. He is pretty cute.

We had some good bonding time today, so I think I may be winning the favorite parent game for now. It's not fair that Ray isn't even her dad and he wins most of the time.

I just want to make sure you all get to see one example of how stupid she is before I finish.
This is kitty stuck between the screen door and the glass door on the patio. When she had her front claws she would climb to the top, smushed between the glass and the screen. Now, with now claws, she just gets herself into tight places and tries to wriggle her way free.
That's my cat and I love her.


  1. You know, I never really liked cats that much, but I had a small mouse go running around my apartment a week ago, and I can't get over it. I might have to decide which is the lesser of two evils.

    Your cat is cute though :)

  2. I know this is super late, but thanks so much! I haven't had any mice yet, so I don't know what she would do with one. Probably try to play with it...
