My Sisfur Majel

Dad managed to get this wonderful picture of me and my sisfur Majel yesterday and I just had to share it with everyone. It was a rare event because Majel does not like me.


In fact, for the first year I lived here she wouldn't come out from under the bed. Well, we think she really did when everyone was sleeping, but mom was getting really worried. You see Majel is seventeen years old and mom was sad that she was so terrified she felt she had to hide. Eventually mom and dad decided to take the mattress off the bed frame so Majel couldn't stay under the bed and she has been lots better since then but she still won't have much to do with mom. That makes me sad too because mom is really attached to Majel.

Majel and her real sisfur Isis were adopted from the SPCA a couple of months after mom and dad got married. They were both white kitties (the V.E.T. said he thought they had Siamese in them). Majel has the twin spots on her head and Isis had a small brown spot over an eye brow. But what is really cool is their tails are calico. You can see her tail in the picture some. Isis went to the rainbow bridge in 2003 because of kidney failure. They still miss her.

Boris will appreciate this - Majel is named after Majel Barrett Roddenberry, the wife of Gene Roddenberry, the creator of Star Trek. She also played Nurse Chapel on the original show, was the computer voice, and played Deanna Troi's crazy but lovable mother and Betazoid Ambassador Lwaxana Troi in The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine franchises. Mom and dad will admit that we pronounce Majel the kitty's name different than her namesake pronounced hers.

Majel is a very bootiful girl. It's too bad she no like you. It's hard to understand. Maybe it's cuz she might be afraid of you - afterall she was alone with your peeps for so many years. Thanks for introducing her.

So glad you have good parents. Majel feels a little more secure everyday, she's just scared to show it, afraid it will go a way. Just keep being your wonderful, kind, and loving selves and know you're just what your sisfur needs.

I think all old ladies always behave lofty and look serious. But as long as you don't over irritate them, they are fine and treat you well. So, please just don't overdo when you play with them. Besides, I've a feeling that they actually secretly want you to play with them but they are too proud to show it out. Well, they want to remain their pride, I guess.
