Wordful Wednesday: Milo

Since Milo seems to get the shaft a lot, I thought I’d do a post just about him.

He gets up and leaves whenever he hears my camera so it’s hard to get many pictures of him. All of these pictures are old.

Milo is about 10 years old. I got him from a co-workers daughter, when I was living on my own, as a nineteen year old. My mom and sister got his brother (who passed away a year or two ago).

Milo is a total and complete pain in the butt because he pees on all of our clothes whenever he feels like it. He’s not cuddly except when he wants to be, but that’s a cat for ya. lol

He sleeps on a pillow above my head every night and he has a routine he does when he comes to bed…

He jumps up on my side of the bed then walks over me and Kyle. Sometimes he’ll stop and knead us and then lay there or else he’ll circle around Kyle’s head and make his way back over to my side where he settles into his pillow. Then he proceeds to purr…loudly…for a good five minutes before he’s asleep and quiet.

In case you might be wondering…this is my “blankie” I sleep with every night. My mom made it when she was pregnant with me.

This picture is from when Kyle and I first got married so the blanket has since seen better days.

When he’s cold, he’ll nudge his head into the covers till I lift the covers for him to make his way under and in between my legs.

When he’s out of food or water, he’ll be “affectionate” until I replenish his dishes.

If he wants outside, he’ll chase me around the house, running ahead of me until I let him out.

If either of us are in the shower, he comes in the bathroom (0pening the door himself if it’s shut) and jump up on the side of the bathtub “begging” for water. I don’t think Kyle does it, but I then have to let the water run down my arm and off my fingertips so he can drink like I’m his human water fountain. He does that until he’s basically choking on the water, but I can see when he’s about done so then I go back to my shower at hand.

As you can see, Milo has a personality all his own. I love looking at his little pink nose…and have you ever noticed kitty teeth? They’re SO TINY! So cute!

While he drives. me. nuts. I love him and if anything were to ever happen to him, I’d be devastated. I sure hope I’m not jinxing anything! Ugh! Knocking on wood right now!!

There ya have it. My first baby! =D



  1. He is absolutely adorable, and I love the name!

  2. The first picture looks like he’s super cat. You can just hear the “Da-da-da-DA!”

  3. Haha! What a spoiled kitty!

  4. I totally thought the first pic was like a mid-flight one! And the next few with just his toes or his face are fantastic. I love the one of him in the grass.

    What a beautiful tribute; I hope Milo is duly grateful! πŸ™‚

  5. I love that picture of Milo hanging over the blanket…

    fur-babies are totally a part of the family…

  6. Great pictures! He is living the good life!

  7. I am in love with him. Kitties are my favorite and I still miss our precious Felix, who was murdered by the vet 6 years ago. Milo is just purrrrfect – and he takes some great photos. I’m with Sassy Britches – the ones of his toes are fantastic!

  8. poor milo…but now, there’s a whole post!!! love the blankie…i hope my kiddos hold on to theirs. maybe i’ll show them your post and they will!

  9. great pics!!

  10. Milo looks like a great friend.

    Our cat loves to pee on a bag if she finds one on the floor.

  11. I just lost my 18 year old best girl friend Booger..So I know how much your love your sweet kitty. Such great pictures…Loved seeing them.

  12. There is nothing like that first cat you got when you first went out on your own. I still miss mine although she died almost six years ago.

    Great pictures and I love what you wrote about him! His precious.

  13. It is so funny how pets just have minds of their own and each one has such a different personality! Milo is a really cute name!

  14. Oh he is so cute! My cat likes to sleep on my head at night, I think they like laying by our heads for the warmth or something…I love Milo, he’s so cute! I love how cat’s have such distinct personalities!

  15. I’m sure he’s spoiled nonetheless.

  16. He is a very cute kat. It sounds like you are describing your first baby.

  17. He sounds like a stinker (ha) but he is so cute!

    By the way, I am just like that thinking that talking about my love for someone means I am jinxing myself. I thought I was the only one who thought that way!

  18. What a COOL cat! He definitely has a great personality, and it’s obvious he is well loved! πŸ˜‰

  19. (Thanks for the plug πŸ™‚

  20. Hahaha I love the ‘human water fountain’! πŸ˜‰

  21. what cute pictures of milo. i loved the stories, too πŸ™‚

    thanks for sharing!!

  22. Aaaahhhh…. Sweet baby!

    I love the black and white pics!

  23. Your cat is super cute… My cat, Riku is also a big fat pain in the butt who pees on our stuff whenever he feels like it, tries to get IN the shower with me and loves to sleep right on top of me… My husbands cat, Kyrie, is just so cute it’s annoying and I prefer my pain in the butt cat to her because he’s mine πŸ™‚
