I was nearly 8 years old when I got Friskey , from one of the second grade teachers at my elementary school, in GA. At the time I wanted a girl cat, bus she told me that they were meaner, so I got a boy cat instead. And he became one of the loves of my life.
I remember when we first got him the first few night he sat in between the kitchen and the dining room and meow very loudly because he miss his cat family.
As he got older there would be times that he would try to run away, but he was too scared to go far. He hid in the woods behind our trailer in Tennessee, under neath the trailer but he always came home meowing because he was hungry.
When my sister and I got older we took out our baby doll furniture out of our rooms and put in the living room as it was going to be put in the shed later that week. But before the doll furniture made it to the shed, Friskey claimed a piece all his own seat.
One night when the family was out in the living room watching TV, Friskey decide to jump into the baby doll high chair and sit. This seat became his and from that point on till the time that he died it would be his seat. It was funny to see him do this and there was a time that he actually at his cat food from it!
Then there was the time that Friskey food was kept in the cabinet and he was really a smart cat, because when his food dish was empty or the food was not up to his taste he would use his paw to open the cabinet where the food was kept. He would keep this up till someone would feed him.
During our many moves, Friskey has traveled by RV which he tried to go to the back of it but my dad held him down and told him he couldn’t go there. Traveled by van which was being tow by a moving truck and finally by car.
Friskey surely used all of his nine lives he used one those up when he got stuck in a couch for 3 days.
Whenever I was sad he would come sit near me or at the foot of my bed, he did that for most of the family too.
He was a good cat, very different than most other cats.
Some of Friskey's favorite foods aside from his Cat Chow were, dirtoto chips, chicken, and meatloaf and tuna.
