My Silly Sully
This is the story of how I came to adopting that Cute little pinky Nose to the left that I named Sully, oh & she chose me.
On July 5, 2002 we had to put my cat Tiffany to sleep. Tiffany kept getting water on her lungs etc & we already had it drained twice and she really wasn't eating. So we thought it would be more humane to let her go. We gave her a nice morning & let her go smell the flowers on the deck before I left for work, being it was a beautiful day and all. During lunch mom picked me up & we went to say bye to 'Tiffy'. (The vet was around the corner from my job at the time) She looked at us until she passed like she was saying 'Thank you & I love You.' Between this & getting Sully was an odd time for me; as I don't remember being without a cat in my life. I think I was moping around the house and couldn't figure out why I felt lost.
We adopted Sully August 2, 2002 from Just Strays who rescused her from Sing Sing prison. There was a guard that was putting the cats, (kittens) that were part of a rehab program there down the incinerator. (the A-holes never had the cats 'fixed' or however they got the cats didn't give them ones that were)
We think Sully was a kitchen cat at the prison as she likes to 'help' in the kitchen when we are preparing the food. She might sit on the chair and watch, & sometimes will swipe a piece of lettuce or some other leafy green item. She doesn't go on the table tho' its very cute, sometimes she puts her paws on it at the edge like a little kid. (Ie: my Sully Baby)

Sully cat.....Where you at?
Get to know her personality
Oh in case you are wondering what's up with her name, I named her after the lead singer Sully Erna of the band Godsmack, not after the Monsters Inc. character. However you might think that means Sullivan but I have no idea how the lead singer started to be called Sully as his real name is not Sullivan (of what I've read).
Some say that you don't choose a cat, that they choose you. With Sully I think that was true, I was looking for a sign of what cat to choose (there was one tiny Black & 1 tiny white one in a cage that's how small they were) I wanted them & to call them Yin & Yang but they were too young to adopt & still nursing)
Anyway... I was playing with the cats & Kittens in the room, & specifically looking for a black cat. I was on lunch when I went to pick her out. I wasn't leaving til I had a cat but I know my boss would have been understanding enough if I came back a bit late) (I think) I had Sully on my lap (or she was close to me) & she was sticking out her tongue. That cracks me up when they forget to put their tongue back in their mouths, and why 'I' picked Sully. She's my little court jester.
No knock against my previous cats, I love them all for different reasons; but so far Sully is the best. She's a lap cat for mom, my little baby & best friend, she comes in my room (when not locked) to say good morning, or wish me good night. She likes to play with crazy things like the plastic from a 6 pack. She behaved herself when I brought on separate occasions one of the cats from work home (long weekend- when they got Pepper at my old job we just got her (Pepper) that Thursday & it was like Memorial day weekend. Then on another occasion Andy which would come & go as he pleased didn't come back before closing for a long weekend & we were driving past to go somewhere & saw him so we brought him home. Though he was a bit of a pain to Sully as he usually was with Pepper.
Forget the headless Horsmean
The Court Jester
Sully should have her own comedy show. She makes use laugh and puts me in fits at times, makingme laugh so hard it literally hurts (to breathe, face, etc).
She does some silly things some baffle us to not knowing if we should laugh or not. For instance, here apparently she's being possessed by an Ostrich. For some reason she has a licking habit, every so often I'll hear an odd noise, and after turning around tehre's Sully licking the window, or the coffee table (which that I can understand being spills happen on occasion but not windows, or wood) Then there's her 'boyfriend' which is a stuffed animal we call 'crazy cat' which is one of those Alley Cats that you click the foot and it makes loud nasty cat meowing (like its in a fight) & Sully comes & licks it I guess trying to calm him down. Too cute!
I have so many nicknames for Sully I can never remember them all at once. I call her my Pinky Nose, as well as my Silly Sully (one reason why you will see in one of the polaroids) plus we think that her mama never got the chance to teach her some things as sometimes she runs so fast she runs into the wall, as well as to this day still has not learned to close her eyes while scratching her head.
Sully likes to play tag & Hide & Seek (I swear), and loves when company comes over. She also 'talks' to us. If we ask her something or say something she will answer back! When I was working, she used to come wake me up before my alarm went off and we actually have to spell out a certain word
S-H-R-I-M-P in front of her so she hopefully doesn't know what we are talking about. When we do, she usually licks her chops!
After she goes to the bathroom, she flies through the house like someone lit her butt on fire. I don't think her mama cat ever taught her anything (or much) as well.. Sully is Kitty Kineval she forgets to put the breaks on & I'm sure she had to have given herself at least one concussion in the time we've had her.

Sully's favorite products
Oh MY! I just got yelled at, as I almost forgot to include her cat grass!
The grass is good for ther digestive system. This is really good if your cats are indoor
she throws a fit if we pick it up to water it & yells for the new plant before it even starts to grow!
and one of the cats Sully is proud of (though she's a lover not a fighter)

Sully's Birthday - August 2, 2012
We got her on this day in 2002, an she's still my kitten.
Yesterday mom called her old, then Sully started to run all over the house to show she's still a Young Kit!
Cat Products WE love
We have the Clock, & one of the Feng shui cats (I think its name is Neko or something like that ) Depending on which paw waves, means either good luck or wealth.
And that jewelry set is too cute I love the colors
Sully was featured in the 50 Cats we love Monsterboard (btm rt corner)
This sums up sully when she wants treats
Hi my name is Sully and I stole the keyboard away!
How do you like my blanket on me? Well that's the original incarnation, now there's a couple other layers that have been added to it. Mommy purchased the yarn and asked our landlord if she'd maka me a blanket out of it.
Mommy & her parents have been a great family and I am glad I chose them & that I make Kimmi laugh when I forget about putting my tongue back in my mouth after I clean myself. I slept on Kim's chest the first 2 nights I lived here as a thank you and to show I was her cat.
I still love to sleep on her bed. I just don't sleep on her anymore, (Yeah ..sadly she doesn't) unless you want to count when I sleep on her pillow with her & I put my butt on her head. ::mer ow mer ow ::laughing??:: Kim has a nice soft tye dye comforter I love to sleep on (pic included) I do what they call the pillow stomp on it, & sometimes I pick it up in my mouth, and twist it around.
Kim says its 'the new baby blanket' Its seen better days but she knows I love it and its so warm during the winter I think someone would have to pry it from her cold dead hands first.(that although sweet I'd rip them apart myself.
I like to read with Kim, well I usually play a bit with the bookmarks & rub the book with my face. She says "I don't know about book worms but you are definitely a book cat." I also like to help her write her letters sometimes or at least just come in the room to say hi to whoever she's writing to, by walking on it.
I also lay on the bed when grandma reads as well, and like to bite on her books marks and the ends of her glasses. Sometimes I help her to cook, trying to sneak a piece of lettuce or something leafy to play with. As for grandpa I sometimes help him fix things, he also plants my cat grass for me, sometimes he does it too late so I cry at the door for it even though sometimes it is a bit early for me to get it.
They tell me I'm spoiled, well.. what do you expect when you call someone Princess. I'm told I am the most spoiled of the cats they ever had (which is 4 in total, but Kimmi doesn't remember the first cat, she was too little, so I'm the 5th)
That talking cat Sylvester is pretty cool, mommy and her parents crack up at it. I sometimes watch it but I get a little jealous. Why don't we do something like that?...
(kim) Sully we have & Its on here. The video of you getting your grass, but you didn't meow as much. So we'll have to try to catch another, plus what about the other day you were acting like a worm, & on monday or tuesday whatever you want to call what you were doing with your scratcher.. went to get camera & you stopped.
Found this on a twitter feed (I forget which one of my friends had it sorry)

Seeing the Cats play with the ipad I want one just for my cat! I just wish I could remember what the mouse game was I heard about.
"No No No NO No"
Sully thinks she has a playmate
an aunt of mine gave my mom a Kitty Clock for her birthday. It meows on the hour & each hour has a different breed of cat.
(unfortunately it doesn't meow the amount of time the hour is.)
Mom says it drives her crazy, (& you can see her jump too lol)
Well sometimes Sully runs out into the kitchen looking for the cat that' smeowing, but I think she only comes out for certain ones. (I wonder what they are saying?)
Letting the cat out?
Do you think we're cat people?

Ok Kim and I are going to go sharpen our claws now

Kim (author) from Yonkers, NY on August 27, 2012:
@SteveKaye: LOL Cool! Maybe I'll have started a new trend here! & I as well have way to many ideas for lenses I already have some that are WIP and others I need to at least just create as a reminder to work on here & there. I do have HORRORween which will be published last day of the month, not sure if i'll make a 'Cutsie' Halloween lens though. I HATE cutsie crap its supposed to make the demons etc on the other side of the veil believe they've already taken over here SO they'll go back to wherever they came from
SteveKaye on August 26, 2012:
What a great idea for a lens! I showed this to Olivia Felini and now she wants a Meow-orgraphy. So that's on my list of things to do, along with 3,234,785 other things (give or take a few).
Kim (author) from Yonkers, NY on August 20, 2012:
@Pam Irie: I think I may have already replied in a direct messege. If you look again On Sully's lens There's a picture of here on her birthday (which was the 2nd of august) so she is still with us! Do you see R.I.P. in ANY part of the 'meow ORGRAPHY? its doesn't say memorial
Pam Irie from Land of Aloha on August 19, 2012:
Sully was a very cool cat. I think you and she were both lucky to be in each other's lives. Sorry for her passing. :(
Kim (author) from Yonkers, NY on August 08, 2012:
@GoGirl2012: We took sully to the vet today. Very good girl compared to my past cats. (one in which they needed to pick u with thick gloves. My cat Tiffany's back claws were killer. I used to look like I tried to repeatedly commit suicide!)
She was in god health, just a bit of wax in her ears & so got some shrimp when we came home. She also met a lot of Dogs & kittys today as well.
GoGirl2012 on August 08, 2012:
Oh Sully is gorgeous too. You are right our Aldous and Sully look very similar. Ok i will try to video Aldous in the acts i talk about in my lens soon. Aldous is so funny and brings me lots of joy and happiness as Sully does for you. Stay tuned.
Kim (author) from Yonkers, NY on July 10, 2012:
@Redneck Lady Luck: Thank you for your comment but you talk like she's no longer here.
She's still around I just haven't got a more current vieo of her doing something.
Lorelei Cohen from Canada on July 10, 2012:
Sully was such a wonderful kitty. You two were very lucky to find each other. It is easy to see the love that you had for one another.
Kim (author) from Yonkers, NY on July 03, 2012:
@GeniePark: She's STILL around. Yo don't see an RIP on here yet. The other page I have Kitty Contentment (aside from sully) is the adoptions previous to Sully (who's sleeping soundly between the coffee table & couch
GeniePark on July 03, 2012:

I have a little bad news for you....Sully is now writing and it won't be long before the spelling of SHRIMP will no longer work...perhaps moving to sign language......done with fun and so much love!

Way too much cat cuteness. Sully is adorable.
Kim (author) from Yonkers, NY on January 04, 2012:
@Franksterk: Just Strays saved her from Sing Sing Prison, I adopted her (or shall I say she adopted me) I think I added all your cat lenses (except one or 2) to Sullys & my faves lens.
I wish there was a way you could 'friend' some of the peope on here.. (that's another reason I made a faves list) I also sent my friend in Germany the lns on Knut for her to see!
Frankie Kangas from California on January 04, 2012:
I love Sully. What a really cute cat and lucky you saved her from Sing Sing! thank you for your kind words about Goodbye Knut and some of my cat lenses. Bear hugs, Frankster
