Pipo's PawnderingsJanuary 29th 2010 6:04 pm
[ Leave A Comment ] Hello, everyone. My meowmy has finally gotten the time and courage to make a diary for me.
I am Pipo and I rule my household of felines and canine, even though Minko thinks he is the bully. I just graciously give way when he wants to take the best places to nap or be on a warm lap. Because I am a good Meezer and quite polite. Why, I even use my paws to have a drink 0ut of the water bowl! I would never deign to put my face in there...much better to dip my paw and lick off the cool water drops. I never can understand why my meowmy gets all upset and talks about contaminated water, or wet paw marks on the floor...Humans just don't understand us elegant Meezers...
Today I had to put that dog guy in his place a few times. He is so scared of me, heh heh.
He won't go around me when I block his way... Its a good thing he doesn't know that he could eat me in a couple of bites, because he is a Jack Russell. I have to watch out for Minko, because sometimes the dog guy gets a little too forward with him, or won't let him get away, that's when I really get after him, with big paws and hisses. Meowmy calls it a zoo around here...
Well, I need to go and find one of the cozy spots here, and take a long nap.

[ Leave A Comment ] Today I had an extra session of laser play because I could pester my pawrents at breakfast, usually only get that chance at dinnertime. Oh how I love to spin around and around to chase and catch that thing. Then I spotted the reflection of some water on the ceiling... what? not the laser, but I stared at it for a while, but there was no way to climb up anywhere to reach it, and then my human drank up the water, so it was gone...
I got a special treat in the kitchen. Meowmy was making something with ricotta cheese, and she gave me a lick, oooh, it was yummy.
I also had to do guard duty for Minko, because he was spooked from the vacuum cleaner. He was in the wrong room when meowmy got it out, so he couldn't hide... He almost spilled the coffee on the desk before he could escape.That dog guy wanted to chase my brofur...but I didn't let him...
Now I can relax and clean my whiskers in the sun.
Oh yeah, I mooched a bunch of belly rubs from my dadhuman pawrent, he's so good at that.
Purrs till next time.

[ Leave A Comment ] Oh I was a good and naughty kitty last night. Meowmy was on Catster and kept hearing these jingly sounds, she got up and saw nothing, so she went back to that computer stuff. So, I thought : 'She isn't going to pay me no attention!' After a few moments, I rattled those dangly things again. This time I was busted! Meowmy caught me playing with the chains on the livingroom clock. Now I am 5 years old and that clock has always been here, and I was well trained by my meowmy not to play with the chains...But I just had to get her away from that computer stuff! Please play with me, instead. So later she sat in the recliner and I got to play with her and then spend hours, (Yes!), on her lap. I'll have to keep finding ways to get her away from that techie stuff...
Oh yeah, this morning Meowmy found me on top of the organ, (a big musical instrument that takes up a lot of space like a big desk, and a great place to climb up on to peruse my world from...), and I was eyeballing the cuckoo clock. Its a big antique clock and has a large bird that comes out to tease us kitties at regular intervals...but as soon as I hear it come out and get up there,(the organ top is almost under the clock), it goes back into its nest, I think its scared of me?!
I don't know why meowmy has to have all these clocks in our house, its so tempting to try and pull them down or tangle the chains...MOL Now she knows why sometimes the clocks are stopped when she comes downstairs in the morning...MOL!
Oh well, time for another catnap.
Purrs and mews.

[ Leave A Comment ] Today I thought it would be good to help my meowmy with the Valentine decorations.
Ist she put up this red and white pillow. I just never understand why she doesn't let me or my brofur sit on it or knead upon it... Its so soft and puffy. (Evidently it must be some kind of an heirloom, because she said she sewed this heart all by herself when she was a little girl...)
Then it was time for the HVD banner. She messed up and it was just kind of hanging there, with a lovely and tempting red string dangling in the air above my head. So I thought she needed some help to get it in the right place. I took the string part in my mouth and ran into the kitchen with it, but then the whole thing came down and was dragging behind me like a train. She got all excited and shouted. That made the dog guy upset and he had to have a barking session and chased me into the living room, still dragging this banner thing with me... Of course by then there was no more helping my meowmy, because it was in 3 pieces...OOPS! So I dropped it and gave the dog guy some lessons in proper deportment around an elegant meezer like myself...a good hiss always is useful...
At least she didn't give me heck, but I couldn't figure out why she was laughing so hard.

[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] Miaows to all!
I had to purr for my furbling Minko, today, as he got to be the DDP. Does that mean I need to be extra nice to him? Well, I guess I can do that. He's a nice kitty, after all. We do have our moments, though.
Meowmy caught me looking at the cuckoo clock again this morning, so I pretended I was just up on the organ to watch the goings on in the room, but she kept on staring at me so I found other stuff to do...like checking out a nice new cardboard box with peepholes in it. Wow, Minko hasn't even bitten it up yet, I beat him to it!
Bye. More, later.
Purrs and mews.
February 4th 2010 8:31 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] Today as a watched a snake like thing twitching nearby where I was laying, I just had to pounce on it, but I missed, because it got away! there it was again, so I tried again, but to no avail. I couldn't even get it to stay away with my cat talk... Meowmy started to laugh at me. How undignified, to laugh at an elegant meezer like me. She said I was chasing my tail, and imagine, she said that's just like our dog guy...OMC! So she got out the laser toy light. I fooled her... now I know another way to get her to play with me... Chasing tail is even better than pawing at her...I'll have to remember that for tomorrow... Yawn.MOL!
Bye. Purrs and miaows.
February 5th 2010 6:54 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] I forgot to chase my tail today, and had to ask meowmy to play laser light by pawing and mewing at her. I'm so good at getting her attention. Its usually the first thing that I do when my furmily sit down to eat supper. I start lurking around before that, though, because I can see her getting everything ready, and I don't want to be caught not paying attention and be taking a catnap or something...
She did that vacuum thing today. I even allowed her to touch me with the wand, but then she tried to fool me and put the sucking thing back on the wand. I just gave her a look and stalked off with my tail up in the air to let her know I'm not scared just annoyed...MOL
Now I'm all tired out and am resting to recharge my battery for another fun catventure.
Purrs and mews to all.

[ Leave A Comment ] Meowmy accidentally deleted forever a pal request this morning...she wasn't paying attention...Apologies if she offended anyone. You could try again. Thanks. Miaow!
February 6th 2010 8:41 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] I found a BUG! today, in the middle of a very cold day! A great way to spend some time... staring at it, watching it travel over the carpet...a little lady bug that the sunbeams warmed up so I could play with it...and pounce on with my big kitty paw...Blam! Meowmy alsways giggles when she watches me get all intense with these tiny bugs, after I pounce on them I never eat them because they taste BAD. And ants... they even feel funny on my tender paw pads. The 1st time I met up with one of those I jumped up in the air from the 'shock' of it...
I'm glad that we didn't get all that white stuff here, but meowmy has a lot of furmily and furends there. Hope they are all warm and safe.
My meowmy says she wants to go to her nest, because it is late...
February 7th 2010 8:19 pm
[ Leave A Comment ] Oh I love Sundays! My pawppy spends time in his recliner on Sunday afternoons, ans then I go and help him stay warm and cozy. I purr sweet nothings in his ear and tell him how much I love him for all the belly rubs he gives me...And then I settle down to help him nap. We kitties are so good at that!
Mews for now. Purrs, too.
February 8th 2010 7:57 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] Meowmy was drying a pair of her boots and although I've seen them there many times, today I couldn't resist... I stuck my dark head into the shaft and started hunting for ...?! All I could smell was meowmy's feet! No bugs or mice or catnip. Now that would have been fun.
Meowmy brought home a new nest for us kitties, but so far we have rejected it. That dog guy stood in it and had a big sniff before he curled up in it, but not us, we're too catausious! Maybe meowmy needs to put some catnip in it, then we would rub and roll in it and forget that it was new...
Purrs to all.
February 9th 2010 5:53 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] OMC! Today meowmy said that I was a DDP. How neat is that? I felt so honored and flattered. I had to roll on my back for a good belly rub from my pawppy.
Later meowmy saw me rolling like a ball in my efforts to catch that tail of mine. It always seem to be just out of reach.
Its been damp and snowy most of the day, and now all the regular evening activities have been cancelled in this area. My human brofur hopes he will get a snow day tomorrow.
Thanks to all who wrote to send their greetings and mews about this DDP thing. Abnd I even got some gifts!Wow! Catster furends are so wonderfurl.
Meowmy needs to get some other work done, so I will mew you my goodnights.
Mews, Purrs and Miaows!
February 11th 2010 6:38 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] Purrs!
Yup. It was a snow day yesterday. I got to have my meowmy all day...but of course it had to be shared with my furmily...
I still don't like that new nest that arrived here a couple of days ago.MOL!
Ive been purring a lot for my kitty pal, Snowflake who is so sick and weak.His meowmy is very worried about him, too. and she can't get to him in the cat hospital because of the bad roads. What a bummer! So, won't you please join me and Minko in sending big load purrs over to him. I'm sure it would really help him.
Purrs and mews!
February 12th 2010 6:25 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] Tonight, meowmy told me that Snowflake had to go to the Rainbow Bridge place. He had been so sick and I was really purring for him to get home again, but all the bridge angels were purring for him to come and play there and be purring furever. So I will purr my sympurrthies to his whole Furmily...Purrrrr, Purrrrr.
February 13th 2010 7:54 pm
[ Leave A Comment ] I have chased my tail so many times today, meowmy thinks I am going nuts...But I'm just happy that tomorrow is Valentine's Day! Then I can give lots of loving purrs and head bonks to my furmily and all my catster pals, too.
This morning, meowmy found me and my brofur all tightly curled up in a ball in the new kitty nest. It was so warm and cozy in there...I think I shall go back there now, for some sweet kitty dreams!
February 14th 2010 7:53 pm
[ Leave A Comment ] OMC! I had a wonderful day today. Got lots of presents for Valentine's Day. Got some special treats from Meowmy, too. And a long lap-nap with Pawppy. Meowmy was eating dinner, so I had to get her attention. I climbed on the computer desk, and then down to the chair. So I was sitting on that chair with my paws on the chair back peering over it...Chirping for a game of laser chase! And it worked!I was just too cute for Meowmy to resist!
I had a few sunbeams today too, but not for long, yowl.
I got a piece of cheese today, a yummy but rare treat. I wanted to eat it, but it made a crumbly mess...so the dog guy cleaned up after me. Doesn't he know that I would have done that myself if he had given me some time...?
Then Meowmy saw me do something I hardly ever do. I was kneading very vigorously
in the cat nest! Lying down in it, and kneading with my forepaws out straight. And having a big purr at the same time.
Oh, I am so thankful for my good life here. MOL
Miaows and Purrs to all!
February 16th 2010 4:30 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] Meowmy said she has a headache, from a cold, whatever that is. She says she is in slow motion...That is something us kitties don't do very well...( I'm glad I'm not having a cold, I rather have a warm or even hot...!
She did a lot of oohing and awwing yesterday. Seems she found the pile of non digital pictures of us when we were babies...so she hopes to get them on a CD for uploading on our pages so we can be more famous... :~)
Also she found pics of her passed over the bridge kitties, so maybe they will get up here on Catster too, to be furever memorialized...
Meowmy wants to sit in the recliner and watch some dog show or something... YOWL! MIAOW ! Dogs Disgusting, only good for beating up, like I do to my brofur, Freckles...MOL!
I think I will keep her lap cozy for a few hours. Purrr.
February 18th 2010 6:34 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Oh, I was glad on Valentine's Day, when meowmy put the nice red and white cloth on the table. Usually there's a plastic one on it. So today the sun came out of hiding and was putting its mark on the cloth. So nice and soft and warm. What more could a kitty ask for. A meowmy who w0uld have let me stay...She shooed me off. Something about cat hair donations not needed at this time...MOL!
So I hopped on to the condo shelf and sunned myself there.. Good thing because I saw a bug! but it got away...Meowmy said it was a drip of melting icicle on the window. She spoils all my fun...
Well now that it is dark, I shall have to find a lap to cuddle up in.
Purrs to all. MOL!
February 19th 2010 7:43 pm
[ Leave A Comment ] Today I was a DDP. second time this month! WOW! Thank you diary gal!
And thank you for all the concats sent my way. I've been purring all day with pride and happiness.
And it was a good day, because the sun was out again, and I could sit in the sunbeam puddles....but not on the tablecloth, because meaowmy took it away to be washed from all the cat hairs we honored it with...
Purrs to all!
February 21st 2010 8:02 pm
[ Leave A Comment ] OMC! Meowmy put the plastic table cloth back on the table. Yowl! But after dinner I saw some sunbeams...and there were 3 nice and comfy little round places for me to sit on. I am a 'proud of myself for thinking of it' kitty. MOL!
So meowmy walked into the dining room and there I was...all sitting pretty on the dining table...But at least not as the main course! Before that silvery, clicky thing came out to cover her eyes...I decided to find a better place to watch the sun...MOL!
February 23rd 2010 8:06 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] Today I gave meowmy lots of paws and miaows. When ever she sat somewhere, she got the paw and dinner was the best...because I know she will sit still for quite a long time... so There I came and pawed at her...Just to get attention, MOL! She always laughs at me when I do that, because I interrupt every other bite of her dinner to make her get that laser light moving so I can chase it.
Today I chased it past the border line where I usually stop! Because the dog guy is always nearby and I want the light all for me! I will run the length of the dining room or the length of the hallway, but not combined...go figure. We meezers have to be in charge! I even let Minko chase the light at the door, I like the floor chasing and He likes to do the jumping style, up on the door - vertically. MOL!
Well, I'm having a long catnap, now. Purr.
February 24th 2010 8:12 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] Meowmy has now made pages for 3 of her 4 rainbow bridge kitties. So she seems a bit mellow and in deep thought tonight. She used to be sad when she thought of them but now she actually seems to enjoy looking at the old photos, and remembering all the things they did. Catster is a great place to put down all those memories and thoughts and cute stories about them...and so also to be able to share them with others.
Me being 5, now, I hope that meowmy will be able to keep lots of fresh stuff going about me, and not memories...for a lot of years yet!
Miaow and Purrs!
February 27th 2010 7:44 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] Meowmy keeps grumbling about all the bug remains that are all over the place. Mostly lady bugs and stinkbugs. Legs here, bodies there and heads somewhere else. She doesn't seem pleased that the bugs are gone, just annoyed that she has to clean them up... Humans are never happy! They are hard to please. I have done them a service by being an exterminator...they should reward me for this service with lots of my favorite treats! Miaow!
Meowmy finished the pages about all her bridge kitties. Now all she has to do is put some captions on the pictures. That will help her with the fond memories.
So now any one can go and look up Groucho, Simba, Toki and Suki. We are surely a Siamese furmily; past, present and future...
Meowmy also has a problem... she wonders if she should make diaries for her 4 bridge kitties. She couldn't write about their daily doings, and it makes her feel foolish to write things about them after all the years that have passed. Certainly there wouldn't be as many entries as she puts in at our request. I think she thought it was a big enough deal to put them in just as plain pages...Maybe you catster furends can give her your thoughts and ideas about this matter.
Miaow for now!
March 1st 2010 7:14 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Today, meowmy brought home a bag of these green things. I was so intrigued, I had to see what it was all about. OMC! She was going to put that stuff ON me! No way! I just made myself scarce...I sat up on a high place while she put that stuff on my brofur, Hee-hee! He wasn't quick enough to avoid the green invasion! Oh and she put things on the dog guy, too....he just looked embarrassed. MOL!Then she spied me but once again I was crafty enough to elude her! Whew! No way is anyone going to get green stuff on me, besides I have blue eyes, it doesn't match! MOL!!
I shall have to be careful until the green day is over and done with...
March 4th 2010 8:01 pm
[ Leave A Comment ] I have discovered the place where Minko likes to hide, MOL! Under an old mat in the nest box, where the dog guy usually sleeps MOL! Now just imagine the fun, (Depending on whose point of view) if I am in that cozy little place hiding from the world, and the dog guy decides to jump in...OOOH! I would be hissing annoyed and the dog guy would get a shock on his snoot! MOL! Surprising, that hasn't yet happened... Purrs!
March 7th 2010 7:58 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] This evening I am on the prowl...I am having cabin and spring fever! I climbed the room divider, stalked Minko, beat up the dog a few times, ( I was jealous because he was the Dogster DOTD today...)I had a yowling and growling session with Minko, and I have done lots of 'talking' while I pace up and down the length of the house...I pawed at meowmy several times,I played peekaboo in her long skirt, and then I went to pester the chains of the living room clock. All this even after being played with by my furmily members...and having a few morsels of the Sunday roast, YUM! Oh and of course the fly in the lamp shade was VERY interesting...MOL! Do you think I am bored, or just wanting more than the attention I already get...MOL!
March 11th 2010 6:33 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] Why meowmy would think that I a Siamese/Thai cat would want to be green in any way is beyond me...I think she has gone cuckoo like the clock! MOL! Besides, green is not a good match with my eyes, even though it probably doesn't look too bad with my nice dark furs.
Well after I gave her the slip a few times she managed to nab me...OMC! she tried to get me in some green thing. Around my neck! YOWL! She tried to get more of the green stuff on me, but she stopped, because I was letting her know that it was stressing me out. MOL! Then she put me in this little basket with green stuff on it...OK, then I relaxed a bit...but just a bit...Then that pesky camera came out to bother me...
Well I did let her get a few pics...because she really is a nice meowmy...but then I was out of there man! OMC, meowmy had to catch me again just to get the stuff off my neck before I went into a frenzy...!
Whatever will I do when she decides to get out those rabbit ears and bunny stuff?!
Hide down the bunny hole, I guess...MOL!
Purrs and Mews!
March 14th 2010 12:01 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] Meowmy says I could be a contestant on Dancing with the Stars... The other day she heard a strange noise of chirping and heavy jumping/moving sounds. She turned around to see me standing up on my back paws trying to catch a ladybug in mid air with my forepaws. I looked like I was trying to do Ballet! MOL! I was on the cat condo when this was going on, so some of the noise came from me jiggling that. I nearly fell off, but got my balance just in time...It sure is a lot easier to catch a bug when they are just walking on the floors or windows instead of flying...
March 15th 2010 8:19 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] I have decided to join forces with the dog guy for a change. It seems we both have the same opinion of them! That is: evict them and eat them! MOL!
When dog-guy runs outside because he sees a squirrel dude, I get up on the cat condo and start chirping and chattering and pawing at the window! I even go back and forth to the other windows to get a better view of this rodent who dares to trespass on cat and dog territory! It is even more fun than light chasing...because this little black fury thing is in the grass, up the tree, down the tree, right in front of my nose...I can almost taste it. Oh how I wish I could get outside to go up the tree after it. Then with dog-guy's help, (Did I say that?), we could both have a tasty snack... MOL!
March 17th 2010 6:53 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] Ok. Its green day, today..., sooo that means that real soon the green pics can come down..I hope. Hope that the embarrassment will end...Hmmpf! The nerve to decorate me with all that Irish stuff when I am so obviously from the other side of the globe...MOL! I have humoured meowmy long enough...
But wait! I hear the crinklings and rustlings of a bag...and my curious nature will get me a look over there...AACK! A bag full of Easter stuff! NO WAY! She wouldn't dare...I shall have to get my claws all sharpened to use in my defense...bye y'all!
March 18th 2010 7:42 pm
[ Leave A Comment ] I like to make myself known in ways that are more original than mewing and purring...
I am kind of a big boy, not chubby, mind you but just larger sized than some of my breed. Maybe I have some big wild cat in me, like jaguar or panther...MOL!
When I walk on the kitchen or bathroom floor, where there is no carpet, meowmy always knows that I am there...Somehow I just can't walk quietly on my stockinged feet! MOL! Meowmy thinks that I walk with a heavy tread, my paws really slap down on the hard floors. Minko and all the other angel cats always are able to walk with stealth even on hard floors, but I like to let my meowmy know that I am nearby. Then she will give me the attention I need and deserve! MOL!!

[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] Today I was sunning myself in the newly arrived spring sunshine...yesterday was a cloudy day...
I was on the cat-condo by the picture window. Freckles was there, too, minding his own business, not even looking at me...so when his ears twitched...Yup, I used my bigfoot paw to give him a catslap...MOL! He is going to get a complex from me...
From this same perch I can reach my catdad, when he's eating dinner or whatever. So I did that,too with my bigfoot paws...I stretched out and gave him a back and shoulder massage. That way he turns around and then I get a nice belly rub...I can direct where I want him to rub with my bigfoot paws, too. MOL!
Oh, and from here I also can use my bigfoot to slap at them pesky ladybugs that are evefurry where.

[ Leave A Comment | 13 people already have ] OMC! When meowmy opened her mail this morning...there was a message from the Catster peoples...And I was a DDP. Again. 2nd time since I have been doing diaries. Wow!
Not only that, but then meowmy found out that my dog-guy furbling (Freckles) was also a DDP! OMC/OMD!!
So meowmy has been doing a lot of 'puter stuff and I get 2nd place??! Oh, opps. she played really wild with the laser light much more than some days...and gave me lots of belly rubs...PURRRRR I just love to have belly rubs, I even push petting hands towards my belly and roll in my back so that I can have them...My cat-dad is the best at that! I just hate it when they stop...so I follow my people around to remind them of my presence and need for these attentions! MOL!
I have been purring with Minko for some other kitties who are sick or injured. Lately there have been quite a few of them:(
Hope the nice spring weather brings better days and healing to all who are in need of it.

[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] OMC! Today meowmy thought her computer was strange..., because when she refreshed the Catster page, there I was in the diary list again! OMC!
So she looked in the email, and, yes, it WAS true!
Why this honor should be bestowed upon me 2 days in a row, is beyond me...but I certainly am not complaining!
So now my brofur, Minko is feeling a bit jealous, he chased me all over the house this evening...But I didn't let him catch me...MOL!
Today was great with lots of sunshine to make my beloved sun puddles all over. And to sit and preen myself in so that my furs will have that special sheen...I love it when meowmy says I am a handsome boy. Then pawppy came home from work, and I got my favorite belly rubber to do his thing...
I am all tuckered out from today's busy doings...so I am going to have a very long cat-nap!
March 26th 2010 9:19 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] I am NOT a blue bunny, even though my pictures would be trying to fool you... I say MIAOW, not hip-hop... and I probably would chase a bunny if there was a real one. MRROW!
And then meowmy got this truly silly pic of me entirely as a blue bunny! OMC! what is she thinking...! Soon The girl bunnies will all be hopping over here, and dog-guy will go nuts. And so will I and Minko when we have to listen to all that barking!
My only consolation is that soon Easter will be done with and i can go back to being a real fur naked kitty. I hope!
PS: Thank you Bear!

[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ] OMC! I am a pukey guy today...I puked on the carpet in several places, in the dog nest, MOL!, on the couch, narrowly missed the piano, and then did some more in the front room. YUCK! I don't know why, I feel OK, and I am still playing with my humans and furbro. Meowmy is mystified, only the 1st big barf had food in it, the rest looked 'clear'.
Then I went to get a drink of water, by my usual method of paw dipping and licking...and a bit later...oh-oh more pukes!
So now I am just sleeping in my nest, and Meowmy will be watching over me to see if I am sick or whatever...Maybe I had a hair caught or something like that...
Hope nothing serious...
Till next time, and I will keep you uploaded with the news.

Meowmy checked the email this morning and lo and behold there were so many messages...most about me...MOL! She looked over at me and said: 'Your pukies have made you famous!' What?! How can that yucky stuff have that effect? Oh well, sorry meowmy I don't plan on making a habit of that activity...MOL! I am sure you are glad that puking is not one of my regular cat doings. And I am purrty sure that I am done with that...today I am full of energy, and my cat paws have been quite busy smashing the dog-guy, the best one was when he was rolling on his back...MOL! I love to give that dog-guy a hard time!
Meowmy had a time of thinking, yesterday, and thought that maybe I had eaten a tiny silk flower or part of one...I like to nibble on plastic stuff and she had a bag of flowers in a bag in the laundry basket up on a table, that she thought was out of harm's (Pipo's), way...MOL! She thinks I jumped up there to have a close moment with my Cat-dad, head bonking and such, and then when no one was watching anymore I started to chew on the bag and its contents...Oh-Oh! One day she says this will be my undoing...
I shall have to prove her wrong!
Well, thanks to everyfur who has sent messages, and presents. They have all truly been appawciated.
Gotta go now!
Purrs, Mews and Loud Miaows!

[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ] When I asked meowmy to look on Catster this morning, as I always do, miaow! OMC she saw my little blue bunny face again! In the diary section! Is that how they play tricks on us?? Nope! The joke was that I even thought that!! MOL! DDP, again! Meowmy checked: 5 times since being on Catster, and also one DOTD! How cool is that! The bummer part is that our internet service was in funky mode the past few days, it would be on then off and so on. Not reliable...so there weren't any entries...but now its been fixed! Huraay! And now I can make meowmy spend tons of time looking at kitty stuff again...MOL! I shall have to work hard, though to keep her off the Dogster site...HEE-HEE!
Once again very many thanks for all the concats, messages and gifts that came my way.Forgive me for not doing each separately...you are all loved and wonderful furpals!
I got to sit in open windows the last couple of days, and probably tommorow again, love the fresh air and sun puddles!
But I don't know what got into meowmy...! She got out that noisy sucker thing, so I had to be in hiding for a while. Then she let a stranger in the house. I went to a private place, but I made sure that I could still see what he was doing...he was moving these long black snaky things and going inside the office part of the house, and outside and in the basement...then he had a discussion with meowmy. Then meowmy had this big smile on her face as well as my unfurbro. when he left, I had to go and smell all the trails of foreign smells he had left. Apparently he has pets, too for I could smell them...
After a long nap after all that excitement, meowmy played laser chase with us. Then...OMC I got trapped in the bathroom! She gave me my heartworm chew...sometimes I will eat them and other times not. Today was NOT, MOL!
So meowmy used the pill popper method! Then she brushed my teeth. Mean meowmy! But I forgave her when she brushed all my ruffled furs into a shiny smoothness. MOL!
Meowmy will have to take that blue bunny stuff down real soon, now! Yeah! MOL!
Purrs to all and to all a good night!

[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Today when I was having a nice nap in one of the many cat nests around here, suddenly I was rudely awakened!! By the dog-guy! ( SHHH! I shouldn't really tell you that this was a boo-boo on his part though...MOL!)
He came bounding inside and wanted the same nest as I was in, you see there are 2 nests on the love seat, and we have to share...anyways all of a sudden, Meowmy heard this big kafuffle and I was hissing and growling and crouching down for the big dash of spitfire and catslaps!
Hey! Meowmy picked me up, and let the dog-guy get in my nest...she put me in another one, on the recliner but it wasn't as warm...so I crawled in the 2nd nest with Minko, glared at the dog-guy and finished my disturbed beauty rest...
Meowmy said that the dog-guy just made a mistake and forgot to look in the nest 1st, before jumping in like he usually does!
She sighs and says what a zoo around here! hey, How can 3 critters be a whole zoo?!
Purrs and Miaow!

[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Oh how I want to capture the ever elusive cuckoo bird that lives in meowmy's antique cuckoo clock.Yesterday when meowmy was petting me, it was about 6 pm and the cuckoo came out of hiding for a brief moment. I ran away from Meowmy, jumped on the organ lid, and stalked the birdie...but he went back in his house almost as soon as I crouched down!so I went behind the music holder on the organ, and sat there waiting...but 30 minutes is a long time to wait, even for a patient kitty like me!and even longer till he comes out for more than one chirp! The ting is, he doesn't just sit in there and sing out his cuckoo, he bobs up and down for each syllable of cuckoo. Now if I waited around till 12 o'clock, then maybe I will get a chance...MOL!
One morning, meowmy came downstairs and the clock was stopped...at 2 o'clock...so she knew what I had been up to during the night! Busted! She is worried that I may knock the clock down, and then she would NOT be happy! What is worse iswhen I mess around with the chains...but the clock in the living room is more interesting for that, because the chains move a lot when that clock chimes. and the chains are in easy reach...MOL!but there is no bird to pounce on at regular intervals...
Us kitties are very clever at inventing toys to play with approved or not...MOL!
(And I do have lots of fur bits and mice and cat nip and others to play with...) I just want to be original!)
Hope you all had a very Hoppy Easter!
April 5th 2010 6:30 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Well The Hunt is over...and meowmy only found 5 eggs :o(
No way could she devote all the 'puter time for that! Then we would be sorely neglected...Maybe in the future any one who finds ANY of those very elusive eggs should get a zealie for each one. Then the time and effort would be worth it...just a pawndering about that...any of you other kitties think like that?
Well, Meowmy entered us in the 'Easter Purrade'. So there we were in our bunnyness...MOL! along with all the other kitties...Well, we didn't win but she thought it was a fun thing. Concats to those bunny and Easter cats who won!
So now soon when she gets a chance to do it, meowmy will choose new pics to put on our pages...and bye bye bunnies! Yeah!
If she waits too long I shall have to enlist the dog-guy to help chase them all away!
Got to go and nap, now!
Purrs and Miaows!

[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] Yippee! Meowmy did it! She took down my bunny pics that made me sooo embarrassed! Then she had to rearrange all the other ones...hee-hee! So there! the extra work was her chastisement for making me pretend to be that bunny-dude!
Today at supper, I hopped on the 'cat-condo' and gave my cat-dad a hair dressing lick and a back massage...He works so hard, I thought he needed the extra attention!
April 7th 2010 2:14 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] Today, meowmy uploaded all kinds of pictures to my page. Most were of me when I was a kitten, some are with Minko, who is only a few days younger than me.
This uploading and organizing is a lot of work, and I think I heard her say 'that's enough for now', so that means that some other time she will do more rearranging and labeling and framing...So much work, that I make my meowmy do, so all the Catster pals can ooh and awe over me...MOL!
Purrs to all!
April 8th 2010 7:11 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Today I was kind of a naughty kitty...meowmy was playing laser chase with Minko and I...and when she put it down to eat her dinner, i decided it would be fun to chase and beat up Minko...usually he starts these scuffles, but today I decided to show him a few things...OMC! Meowmy saw Minko's fluffed up tail, and knew that he, the usual bully cat was embarrassed...Yeah! I'm the boss for tonight, anyway...
Hey, what the...? Meowmy grabbed me and brushed my teeth...and then she further insulted my mouthy by putting that spray in it...YUCK!
Well, That's all folks! My secatery is tired from snoopervising us and taking care of our teethes...MIAOW!!
April 11th 2010 8:37 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] Pretty quiet here past few days...just good ordinary days. Chased the dog-guy a few times, beat him up once or twice...MOL, had wrestling matches with Minko. had wonderful sun puddle naps and followed my pawppy around like a shadow! So as I could massage his shoulders when he sat in the dining room or get a belly rub from him in the recliner...I played a bunch of laser tag games, and hunted down some bugs...and got my teethies brushed, and my furs, too.
I told Minko not to be naughty, but he went through the doggy doors anyways. I just stayed in the house...I am not going to go in the dog's private room, then he might get ideas and pay me back for beating him up...MOL!
Purrs and a big bunch of Meezer Miaows!
April 12th 2010 5:55 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] I was intrigued by what meowmy was doing to Minko...head gear with stars? OMC! She is doing crazy things again...well all of a sudden she picked me up! Tricked! Into the torture chamber? No first a session with the self-same stars as Minko...and THEN into the toothy torture chamber...At least I didn't bite her, the way Minko did! MOL!
Purrs and mews!
April 13th 2010 8:26 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] Meowmy thinks my day was rather quiet, today. but I did do a fair bit of my talkies with her and pawppy. Esp when I wanted their attention and some laser chase time!
It was too cold and damp and windy, today to have any windows open...so I just sat on the condo, to peruse my domain!
April 14th 2010 7:05 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Meowmy is doing this project, and part of it includes making some cat art about ancient Egypt. So I just know that I will be the 'chosen' kitty to pose...and get tortured with some strange getup...why can't she just get a stuffed kitty to be dressed up and take pictures of that? It would be so quick and easy...MOL!!
April 15th 2010 7:09 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Meowmy was washing the kitchen floor today. We were lurking all around to spy on this activity, but it was kind of wet and smelly...after she was done and got herself a drink...I went over to the floor to investigate...but no way...I wasn't allowed, because it wasn't dry yet...Hey I want to get to 'the box' and to the food dish, too...but meowmy said, No you have to go and use the other 'box' and there is plenty of food at the other end of the house...Well! When she wasn't looking Minko and i walked over the floor...but yuck! Here and there were still some wet spots...I guess i should have listened and been obedient...Hah! Not Me! MOL!
April 16th 2010 8:52 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] I wanted my Pawppy to give me a belly rub, before he went upstairs to bed...so I followed him to the loveseat where our 2 nests are. (There are more nest in other places...so its not like 3 pets have to share 2 nests...) Anyways I about ran to catch up with pawppy, and was going to jump into the 1st nest...OMC! The dog-guy was in there...! I caught myself just in time to avert a catfrontation! Pawppy had the nerve to laugh! So I stalked off in a huff...Who needs belly rubs, anyways...I shall get lots more tomorrow, because it will be Saturday!
April 18th 2010 6:55 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] The game of laser tag is perhaps one of my favorites. But lately meowmy has been having a time of it, to get me all excited...even after I am begging for the thing!
So she decided that the 'spot' wasn't quite bright anymore, and put in a new set of batteries. BINGO! Now I was going crazy. I went round and round so much, that I was dizzy, I couldn't keep my head straight! So meowmy said, that's enough for now...but soon I was pawing at her for more.
Minko goes cuckoo for catnip, but Me not so much...I am far more reactive to the laser light! That must be my catnip! MOL!!
April 20th 2010 8:05 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ] Meowmy has been having some trouble with our water filter...so today, there was a stranger in my house...he did a lot of talking and going in an out of the house...And made some banging noises downstairs... well meowmy walked past the basement door, and saw me lurking there...so she pished me! OMC! Then I had to run away very fast, because that scared me more than the stranger...
I heard her say that someone has to came another day to do more fixing, then maybe I can sneak in a chance to check out the forbidden dungeon! MOL!
Meowmy is always amazed that we don't go down there, all her other kitties were curious enough to go down if they had a chance, and 2 of them could pry the door open if it wasn't shut properly!
April 23rd 2010 8:44 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Well, that repair-dude came yesterday. He left the dungeon door open, so I was able to lurk around the opening a few times. Even not-so-brave Minko came to have a bit of a look with me...so we were both deciding if we should go down those steps into the dungeon hole! NOPE! Repair-dude made some loud noises with his drill and so we both vamoosed!
Well, after leaving lots of earth on the kitchen floor to help celebrate Earthday, he got done. We were smelling the interesting earth scents, but meowmy put a stop to that...she washed the floor!
Well, now we have nice clean Earth ale to quench our thirsty needs!
April 24th 2010 6:03 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] Today was nice and mostly quiet. Just the way I like it! No invasions of strangers,that leave messes and make lots of noises to stress me out...But there wasn't much sun to warm my furs in its puddles. It was cool, windy and rainy. But no storms...yet. Meowmy said she could see them creeping up on the radar. Too bad there had to be all those bad tornado storms in other parts of the Midwest and south.
I was grooming my furs, today...and when the tip of my tail didn't let me get to it, I began to roll and roll, just like a furry brown ball! I chase my tail a lot, its kind of fun!
Wouldn't it be funny if meowmy could teach me to do it on command like a trick?! I have heard her talk about how some of my furbears knew how to do several tricks...like dogs!
OMC! I am a Kitty!
Maybe I should stick with normal kitty stuff like bird watching...MOL!
April 25th 2010 7:50 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] I am thankful that I have 2 loving pet pawrents! Meowmy and pawppy. Also 2 unfurbro's that love me and Minko, too! And that dog-guy...well he's a fun toy for me to beat up on...MOL!
They play with us, they groom us, they give us good and healthy food, they find soft comfy nests for us, give us lots of mousie toys, catnip, and boxes, etc. to play with. They clean up after us, day after day...they don't complain...well not too much...about when we lovingly put our extra furs on their clothes and furniture, and they put up with all kinds of our mischief making!
All they ask from us in return is a good kneading or purrs in their ears...oh, and lapwarming makes them happy, too.
I'd say that I think we have the easier part of this kitty contract! That must be because even though they think they own us...actually we own them!! ( And owners get to call the rules!) MOL!
April 28th 2010 8:12 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Today, after a lot of play time with meowmy and the cat 'fishing pole', Meowmy got out the catnip. Usually I just give a cursory lick and sniff to the stuff...but today, meowmy crushed and rubbed it in her fingers before presenting it to me...
OMC! What did she do?!
It smelled sooo good! And the taste! I was going a bit cuckoo! I ate and sniffed and sniffed some more. Inhaled was more like it! Then when I tried to go somewhere else, I just plopped down. Right on top of the leftovers...stoned! Meowmy hasn't ever seen me react like this to the 'nip in the past...but she thought it was quite funny! Hey I thought I felt rather undignified and inelegant. Not befitting of me-my royal catness!! Oh, well. It was a good way to keep Minko from stealing the leftovers like he always does!
April 29th 2010 9:22 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Well, a nice thing happened today. Actually more than one!
First of all meowmy got the email message about Minko being DDP. Those kinds of things are always great!
Dog-guy was outside most of the day, because it was nice weather. Then I can be more relaxed, so I don't have to worry about Minko needing my protection! MOL!
My oldest unfurbro came home from school fur the whole summer! He is the bestet laser toy player. I really missed him while he was at school! There were lots of empty boxes around here after his return, because he was emptying all his stuff...and some of that stuff was just so fun to lie on, never mind those hidey box games I could play!
Dog-guy will be 8 tomorrow, so maybe I will get some treats out of that...MOL! Minko already washed his ears for the occasion! (Dog-guy's ears, that is!)
The sun puddles were at their finest today! and I hear there will be more of them for a few more days, too! That is one of my favorite things to do...lie in a big sun puddle!
But there was some sadness, too. Yesterday, Meowmy saw a big beautiful grey tomcat, dead from a car. That always makes her feel so sad...for the life lost and for the kitty's furmily.
And Smokey, one of my pals from Canada...# 268472, had to be helped to the Bridge, today. She was just too sick with a big tumor. How her furmily will be sad and missing her. But now she will be sickness and painfree. Purrs go out to her whole furmily.
Purrs to all!
April 30th 2010 8:47 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Today was the dog-guy's woofday. Meowmy told me that I had to be extra nice to him...how can I possibly do that for a whole day! Esp when he is getting all the extra attention and treats! OMC! I am so full of envy! MOL! I should have all the more reason to do my usual job of beating him up. Otherwise he might think that he is the boss. Nope, Can't have that!
So to get my share of the attention around here, I just followed meowmy efurwhere! In the kitchen, in the bathroom, at the computer, on her lap...miaow, miaow! I even went to the food bowl and gorged my foods so fast that I made meowmy have to clean up the floor after I chucked it all up! MOL!
Hey it even works! She gave me the biggest dollop of yummy yogurt! I love that stuff.
When pawppy came home from work, I was all over him, too.
Well, tomorrow and normalcy, (whatefur that means...MOL),will soon be here! Then the balance of attention and power, will be of the right proportions! MOL!!
May 2nd 2010 8:27 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] The dog guy is leaving! OMC! That means I will have peace!
OMC! That also means that Meowmy is leaving...Hiss! :(
I like to beat up on dog-guy, and I have a job of protecting Minko from him, but actually he doesn't bother me very much. I think he is scared of me, MOL!
Well, I will miss meowmy...but she said that pawppy and one of my unfurbros will be here all the while to keep the food and water filled and fresh, and to keep the litter boxes cleaned out! Shoot! No one to hiss and give cat slap to...that IS kind of fun, you know! MOL!
Secretly, I will miss dog-guy!
Meowmy says that she will not be able to get internet access, at her sister, because she doesn't have it...probably no time to get to a library either...
So I will say good bye now until she comes back...who knows what kinds of things I will be purring about later!
May 8th 2010 3:29 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Meowmy came home last night...in a raging storm...but now that she is back, we are so glad, the weather doesn't matter! I pawed all over Pawppy while she was gone...strange, though, he fondles my furs, and then goes back to the work he was doing! Can't even get him to play my favorite kitty games...MOL!
Today, we had to just stay cozy in our nests or on someone's lap, there were no sun puddles to relax in! When the sun did come out...the rays were not able to visit inside our windows due to its angle...Hiss!
Pawppy told meowmy that I hardly let him out of my sight when he was home, following him everywhere, pawing at him and having all kinds of catversations with him! So I had to start with meowmy when she was trying to unpack...its so much fun to get in her stuff.
At supper I finally had a well deserved and long waited for laser light game! MOL!
And now I can get some more yummy bits of yogurt or cottage cheese, when meowmy works in the kitchen!
I did let my meowmy know that while the foods, water and boxes were taken care of...I still much prefer her style that the menfolk who live here...and I did not feel the need to give the dog-guy any cat-slaps...yet!
May 8th 2010 7:46 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] I want to wish all pet mommies and human mommies, too, a very Happy Mother's Day!
And mews to all aunties and grandmas, too. Oh and all the great grands, too. All mommies and meowmies are so very important in the lives of those they love, pets and humans!
Miaow! and sweet kitty hugs and love nips!
May 9th 2010 8:34 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Hope everfur had a great a Meowmy's Day as I did...with my meowmy!
I had some great nibbles of some flowers that were in a big basket...Minko asked me to come and help him check it out, but we ended up chewing the blooms instead! Until we got BUSTED!!
This morning I got a lick of the daily yogurt ration, then I got a bit of the roast beef that was on the dinner menu. That was so yummy! Meowmy made the dog-guy sit and wait until we kitties had our share...only then did he get some. Hah, we must have higher rank than him...MOL!
This evening, as I was lurking around meowmy, waiting for her lap to get ready for my furry presence, she even gave me some cheese! OMC! That was so yummy!I looked at her and what do you know?! She gave me some more! SCORE! I think she was happy that the Canucks were winning their game!
I am so glad that we have our precious meowmy...when I was just a young kitty she was very sick, and spent lots of time at doctors and in hospitals, but now she is well. I hope I and my furblings will be able to love on her for a really long time!
May 10th 2010 7:05 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] Funny things sometimes happen to me...I can tell whenever a plastic container of yummy stuff comes out of the fridge, it makes such a typical noise when meowmy opens it! I just know it means Yum!Well today I was tricked because the container didn't have my favorite stuff in it...which would have meant a lick of yogurt or cottage cheese, right off meowmy's fingers...I don't want carrots or broccoli!
I can come when meowmy calls my name..but if I were to ignore that, she just needs to open a plastic tub, and there I would be!
And more funny stuff, is when I chase my tail. Sometimes I just go in circles, like a wheel on its side, or I sit on the floor and get it underneath me...that is the best way to actually get ahold of the end of it...or sometimes I roll all over the floor like a big, brown furry ball! Well last time I did that, Minko was bored of just watching me...so he attacked me! And then there was a bigger brown and silver ball rolling everywhere!
Dog-guy started to bark, and get excited...and then that was the end of our rolling session!
Not so funny is when meowmy deliberately tricks me...like tonight...I was curious about what she was doing in the bathroom, so many interesting things happen in there, and there are so many temptations in there, too. I forgot about toothbrushes...Well I came close to get groomed with the comb...and then I was picked up and meowmy shut the door so I could not escape! Help! Well, she did get my teeth brushed yet another time, but maybe next time when she calls me I just may have to give her the cold shoulder...MOL!
...but then when she opened the door a crack because she heard scritchings at the door...Minko walked in and then he had the door closed on him and then he got the tooth treatment, too! MOL!
Meowmy brushes and combs us almost every day, and she is amazed at how much fur there still is on her clothes, and when she pets us! But with all this grooming, at least there is less to make those wonderful hairballs with! 'Yuck prevention', she calls it!
May 11th 2010 7:51 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Today I decided that meowmy needed a nice long cuddle session. So while she was trying to get some 40 winks or something like that during the hockey game, I came up on the recliner..and looked for the entrance to the nest she was in...under the throw. Well, meowmy was confused because I don't usually do things like that! MOL! First time fur evfurthing!
So I found the nice and warm place under the throw, right beside meowmy. She obliged me with some petting and fur rubbings and then we both went to la-la land...until meowmy had to change positions...She nearly squished me! OMC! She had forgotten that I was there because I was being such a nice and polite quiet kitty!
Well, then she apologized profusely and we tried to settle down again. O.K. then. Hey! All of a sudden she thought I was stirring things up and trying to dig a hole or something...but it was Minko who was doing the digging. No rest fur the wicked! She moved him to the other side, under the throw, but I just was so put out by all this disturbance that I went somewhere else, and Minko followed me...He always wants to be where I am and to do the same things as me! Copycat! And that was the end of my personal quality cuddle time!

[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ] OMC! Whoo-hoo! I was so furpawsed that the diary gal picked me, little Pipo, as a DDP, today! Pawsome!
So I was so excited that I went and made a huge barfy mess on the carpet...just wanted to help Meowmy remember me...I think I must have been choking on the thought of my fame...MOL! I feel perfectly fine, though!
And what is more fun to me is that the DPOTD is another Meezer, just like me! Cheeky is his name, and he is waiting to have a forever home to call his own. Maybe with being in the spotlight it will be that much closer to reality for him. Purrs to him!!
May 12th 2010 8:06 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Well, today was quite exciting fur me! I have meowmy busy answering all the messages, pal requests and sending out thank yous! Thank you once again fur all your nice comments and gifts and messages. I hope that all of you kitties will soon also get to be famous, but I have to warn you...your pawrent(s) will be spending more time at the 'puter than with you! MOL!!
Meowmy did manage to sit with me for a while. She was having some leftover cold roast beef, and she gave me some, too! OMC! That was so yummy!
I had no more barfs, either...I think I must just have been all choked up with this morning's mews!
And I got to have a super cat-slapping session with the dog-guy! OI think he was kind of jealous of me...he just went all cuckoo when he came inside from some outdoor activity...he thought he was going to win that one...but no...I prevailed! I am Pipo! I rule the dog! MOL!!

[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Do kitties pout?
Today at supper when all my furmily gathered at the table, I sat on the desk chair and mewed at them. And miaowed at them. And made bread on the chair back for them. And reached out and touched them...don't they get it? I want their attention...Please play laser chase with me. Supper is when you do that...that is why I am here...MIAOW!
Well, then I just put my head on my paws and stared at them fur a while...with a few pathetic mews for emphasis...
It worked! Pouting works, everfur! Try it on your pawrents. Look sad or depressed and mew to catch their eye...and then they will be your slave to do your bidding...Playing! MOL!! We kitties are so clever! Pouting will have to be my new 1st choice for how to influence my servants and slaves...
May 15th 2010 7:36 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Today meowmy was sort of teasing me with that laser light. She got my attention with it, then directed it between my paws. Mreouw! Hey! I backed up to better see it, but it followed me...then she made it track around me over to the tip of my tail...so I had a red point instead of the very dark brown one...Mreouw! I jumped up to grab that spot...but then it was gone...and I had to chase it till it went under the couch skirt! Mreouw
I always make these cute little mreouw sounds when something intrigues me. Not a meow, not a yowl, not a chirp...just a mreouw!
Tonight I did not have to beg or pout fur this game to happen...but meowmy sure did some strange things with it! MOL! Hopefully she won't try to make me look like Rudolph with a red nose! Not even at Christmas! MIAOW!

[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] I think I could start up a home business...a massage parlour!
Today, pawppy was sitting at the table. I was on top of the kitty-condo. From there I can easily reach the occupant of the nearest chair...in this case - pawppy.
So I was using his back as a kind of scratching-vertical-kneading post.
I kept on doing this so long, it was like I was giving pawppy a back rub-massage! MOL!
And he was approving! Because he reached back and sctatched my chin...so I purred and delivered some more massages...MOL!
Does anycat know how to start up a catparlour?

[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Meowmy wanted to pick me up. But I wasn't having any of it!
I could tell that she wanted to do something evil...like brush my teeth or stuff like that.
So off I went, just a bit faster than her, with my tail straight up...I was going to win this game! So I went under pawppy's recliner. Oh-oh! That is not a safe place...in case he would move it or put down the footrest. Meowmy walked away. Hooray! I won. A bit later she was looking for me again, and I was at the bathroom door, trying to see what was going on in there.
So meowmy tried to pick me up again. NOPE! I walked away, I was going to score: cat 2; meowmy 0. BUT...she picked up the laser light. Oh! I will have to stop for that...and when I was trying to figure out where the light spot was, she picked me up! Shucks!
Busted at my game plan, and meowmy has scored!
She took me to that torture chamber in the bathroom and gave me hairball medicine. I do not want to lick it from her fingers, so she has to smear it little by little near my lips, so I will clean it up by myself! The Nerve!!
Meowmy gives us this stuff at regular intervals to not have so many yucks hitting the carpet! Must work, because yucks are not too common around here...MOL!
May 19th 2010 7:30 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] Oh-oh! Meowmy has gotten out the kitty carriers...they are just standing in the room...she thinks and hopes that we will just go in them of our own accord...then she will slyly sneak up and shut the door! Hah! She hopes!
I think she has plans of evil intent ...those carriers always mean trouble is on the agenda...
Well. today was nice and warm, lots of sun and open widows. There were lots of birds in the tree and yard to keep me alert and amused. So Minko took the top seat on the condo, and I went in the 2nd level. Meowmy wasn't quick enough with her camera to catch a shot of our little meezer heads watching the great outdoors! So the photo will just have to be in her head, as it were! MOL!
Hope our day won't be too stressful, tomorrow. I only heard Meowmy say on that ringing thing, that we needed a check-up. Well, mewomy, just look at me! You check up on me a lot...every day! Are you going to show me off somewhere? Maybe you are having some fur tell you that you do a good job with my teeth or something. And I am not fat, I do so much catsercise, every day. You weighed me...10 lbs, this morning!
Will tell you all about it some other time!
May 20th 2010 10:34 am
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Well, meowmy did it!
She stuck me in that carrier, and then took me in the car...to the vet!
Then I had to wait, while Minko got all the attention 1st. I yowled and sang kitty songs all the way there...and in the office room, they had to open my carrier from the top, because I was NOT going to come out of hiding...
When I was done, while the carrier was being put back together, I jumped off the table, and found a nice quiet corner under the chairs...so then meowmy had to get on her hands and knees to try and get me out of there. Almost made her have to move the chairs. MOL!
The vet lady said I was the same weight as a year ago, so even though I seem to be a big eater, all the Minko chasing, dog-guy catslapping and laser games keep the fat stuff away! Good.
Then she said my toothies were looking so good! OMC! Thank you meowmy for torturing me almost evfuury night with that toothbrushing stuff.
She said that it was nice to have a pet pawrent who takes good care of their furbabies.
Then she stuck 2 of those pokey sharp things in my neck furs...OW!
But I endured...and then eventually it was back into that carrier, and back to home. I didn't have much to sing about anymore, though, because it was a good feeling to go home!
So that was my vet adventure...not too exciting or nasty.
At least I didn't do what Minko did, or have to suffer his indignity...MOL! (You can read all about it on his pages, too embarrassing to write about on my page, and I don't need a wet page either!)
May 21st 2010 7:36 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Today was a lot quieter for me. No travels in cat carriers, no vet visits, and nothing too scary at home. Just that noisy vacuum cleaner machine.
I sat on the condo for a while and drooled over some birds - starlings - in the yard,but even they were not very exciting to watch...I prefer big fat robins, or brightly colored cardinals, blue jays or finches. Sometimes I can see woodpeckers, turkeys and kingbirds. Meowmy likes to watch hummingbirds and bluebirds. The chickadees and nuthatches are cute, but they never stay still! They would be hard to catch if I could be allowed to go outside...
About the only excitement here was a big thunderstorm. It was funny to see the worker dudes next door have to scramble for cover! MOL!
Later we got some catnip...but that's not the most thrilling stuff to me, as it is fur Minko!
Meowmy gave us a new type of kitty treat, which both of us liked and gobbled up, but later she saw kitty barfies on the carpet. We didn't tattle about who was the guilty party. So that means that we probably won't get that treat any more...
May 22nd 2010 8:06 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] I am a Siamese kitty, but sometimes I am like a ragdoll...without stuffing! MOL!
Today meowmy tried to put some bandannas on my furry neck...but I was not going to be seen that way. So I just went limp...she couldn't make any pics of me by myself. Though she says that she got a couple of nice ones for Memorial Day, together with Minko.
She did not put the Canada stuff completely away, though...I think she may try to torture me tomorrow. She wants me to honour that queen of long ago, Queen Victoria. Apparently she had a birthday sometime in the month of May..the Merry Month of May! Can't she just hang out our Canadian flag and leave it at that?! Sheesh!
May 23rd 2010 6:49 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Meowmy did it...ugh!
She made me get dressed up with that bandanna thing...well, I did consent, under protest!
So now I can officially wish everyfur, a Happy Victoria Day!
And Meowmy wants to thank dog-guy's pal, Cooper for helping with the falling flags decoration. I think that's pretty cool!
Today all my peeps were home, and there were lots of laps to choose from. I even went over to one of my unfur bros and gave him a back massage, instead of doing that fur my pawppy! Pawppy was in a sun puddle, so I went over there, and had a good self back rub on top of the condo, which was also in the sun. Meowmy was watching this, and she thought I was going to fall off, but I have such good balance...I just rolled back into the center again!
I love sun puddles!
Good thing there were big ones today...it was hot, and the AC was on...then there is lots of too cold for me air blowing out of the former furnace vents...
Bye! Have a good holiday, and have some good eats to celebrate!
May 26th 2010 8:04 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] I must be a very talented kitty! Not only can I sing good classical kitty songs, I have learned to accompany them with a good bass.Like this: Mew, Miaow, bump, bump, mew! etc... My unfurbro is an organist, and the organ which stands in our dining room has a nice set of 32 wooden pedals. I love to walk over them...they make nice bumping sounds when I take my weight off them...If he is playing, and I happen to be his assistant, then there are some truly amazing sounds coming from there...so much so that mostly I scare myself away to other activities that don't hurt my ears or anyone elses...MOL!
Funny, though, I never have the urge to play the piano like the famous kitty on U-Tube!
PS: One of the busy things that meowmy was doing was she went to the oncologist, yesterday. Just for a check up. PTL! All is well, so she can wait 6 more months till the next time. Yeah! So she is coming up to the 4 year mark of her cancer diagnoses...and all is good news. I don't like when she was sick...that was a hard time...but its all over! Yeah!
May 28th 2010 6:48 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Well, Well! I have so many kitty pals to thank fur all the yummy stuff that has been showing up on my page! I shall loose my good figure! But it will be worth it... I have also sent out the truck from my den to numerous other pals, all over Catsterland!
It will be so good to have a pawrty fur my unfurbro. He just had his last day of highschool...furefur!
Next school year he will be off to college, like his older bro.
Amazingly, he was in the top 10 students of his class!And he received various awards fur all of his hard work...
My proud meowmy and pawppy will attend his graduation ceremony in a couple of weeks. Hope the weather is good! Last year when my other unfurbro had his graduation...it was hot, humid and stormy! Not great when you have to have a cap and gown on!
So we shall make use of all the yums on the grill and treats fur afterwards!
And he is an icecream fanatic! I shall have to have a humongous and ginormouse freezer here to keep up with his demand...MOL!
Well, I have to go now, so that meowmy can get me some more icecream...and maybe a burger...with cheese!
May 29th 2010 3:04 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] OMC! She is so good at this stuff, and I am so gullible...Will I never learn!
I come to do my nosey stuff when she's in the bathroom...and she entices me in there, like she is going to play with me...and she does...but then she sneakily closes the door behind me...Meowmy you are mean!So yeah, she brushed my teeth, but this time she clipped my scratchers, too. Now how on earth will I be able to get the dog-guy when he needs a treatment...oh! I guess there still are nail remnants enough to do the job...MOL!
And if that wasn't enough...this morning, she scooped me up out of a nice catnap, and put some of that silly patriotic stuff on me...Not that being patriotic is silly, but I would rather let other dogs and cats wear the stuff. Well, in order for her to let me away from her camera thing and those awful bandannas...I decided to co-operate...more or less. But don't you for a minute think that this will be allowed this easily in the future! MOL!
Watch out, Meowmy! I can be a limpy kitty, remember?!
OK, Off to do more interesting kitty stuff, like sleeping!
May 30th 2010 8:28 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] Thanks so furry much to all my kitty pals who have been feeding me all these yummy things. I am feeling rather rotund! MOL!
Keeping meowmy busy with fetching things from the fridge or freezer...after all, I own her as my
Have a nice holiday, tomorrow!
May 31st 2010 9:12 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] I have just had an interesting pondering over some furry kitty facts...
This is Prom season!
All the girls get to wear those spawsial dresses, and the guys will wear tuxedos. Also guys wear those to weddings. Since June is coming on tomworrow's calendar...I had this thought...I am always formally dressed in very long stockings, shiny and sleek, they are. Also I have this dark mask that makes me look quite serious and intellectual, at least I think so...
So why doesn't any cat invite me to the proms! MOL!
I guess I could go and find a bow tie for the more fancy of these affairs...even though it would not go with who I am...MOL!
But Meowmy sees several black and white kitties when she takes the dog-guy out for his daily stroll.
Those kitties are totally ready to go to any formal occasion, such as proms and weddings, etc.
Must be why they get to be called tuxedo cats!
I shall have to recruit meowmy to ask them if they get spawsial invitations to these events on a regular basis.
They certainly would have no trouble looking for the necessary wardrobe! MOL!
Just some of my Pipo ponderings!
June 1st 2010 9:13 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] I have caught me a cricket
and chewed it to bits,
It was black and juicy,
But my peeps had fits,
and put it away,
in the garbage can,
where it will stay!
Meowmy found it,
eaten and chewed,
She screamed, Yuck,
and oh-ohed and eewed!
So next time,
I find a cricket,
I shall eat it all up,
Meowmy will think me wicked,
I will have had a good sup!
(PS: I really did have a cricket, and I tried to eat it, but decided the shell was too hard...MOL!)
June 2nd 2010 12:48 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] Oh how I wish there would be some sun puddles...but not today...It has been rainy and stormy and when it is dry, then the clouds are still there. Whatever...
Well, I had a great game of catfish with meowmy, some laser chase, and a whole bunch of squabbles with Minko. Actually, I think it would be more accurate to say...Minko had a whole bunch of squabbles with me...This is the face of kitty boredom...we get fed up with each other...even though meowmy has provided entertainment for us.
One bright spot...I got to lick up a bunch of yogurt...while the dog-guy had to sit by and wait for his turn...Yeah! Kitties get first choice...MOL! We Rule!
June 3rd 2010 7:46 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] OMC! Today I was waiting fur meowmy to play laser chase. Well, I looked up and behind pawppy on the picture window was this humongous moth! Forget about the laser!
I said mrewrp?! and jumped off of my perch. I jumped up on the condo and stood up on my hind paws to reach fur that big moth...but I could not touch it, even though my paw was right over it. It was on the outside...shucks! Well I smacked at it a few times,before I decided that that wasn't any fun...it wasn't even moving!
So then I went back to chasing that little red light all over the place.
June 3rd 2010 7:57 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] It was time fur my heartworm medicine...which comes in a little chew. Minko gobbled his up really fast. Meowmy put mine in front of me...I gave it a cursory sniff, and decided that was not fur me. I disdained that and stalked off.
OMC! Meowmy caught me and put me on the floor in her lap. Then she had to get me in a position so she could make me have my medicine. No way was I going to take it, sorry meowmy!
So she broke it up into a few pieces, and got out the 'pill pusher'. She forced my mouth open and put in the 1st part...and after a long time of holding my mouth shut to prevent my ejective rejection...I swallowed. And this was repeated x3. What humiliation to force feed me medicine...but I must say, she does seem to know how to do it quickly...because I have given her lots of op-purr-tuna-ty to practice...I just will not eat those things...poison I say!Let Minko have it..he is always hovering nearby, in case he should be able to get a chance to grab it. He must find them yummy...but me?- YUCK!
June 4th 2010 7:31 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Well most of this day was pretty quiet. Even the weather. I got to enjoy live outside wiews because we could have the windows open. Hooray! I saw bluebirds, cardinals, sparrows, starlings and crows. Also got to watch the dog-guy busy with his digging chores! Oh-oh! Meowmy will not be happy with that.Late in the day, meowmy had to shut the windows, because it started to rain...but when I heard her there, I went quickly there and jumped in the sill...'meowmy, please don't shut the window.'But then again, I don't think I would have liked getting wet! Meowmy lifted me up and placed me on the floor, so she could shut out the raindrops!So back to the condo perch!
After all this busyness I am in a nest with Minko, we are washing each others' ears...prior to having one of our cozy cat-naps!
June 6th 2010 7:17 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Last night, meowmy was looking for pictures to use for some displays she is making for my younger unfurbro.(This was before the bad storms that put everything on hold fur a while...) She happened upon an album that was filled with pics that her Dad had made. Suddenly she saw 2 pics of me! Heh! How could that be? this album was from the early '70's! And the pics were made in Europe! OMC! It was my great-auntie's kitty. She is 94, now. Over the years she has had several kitties, among them an Abyssinian and 2 Siamese.(She would love to still have a kitty, if it was allowed...but she gets to love on her kids' kitties and dog.) So this was one of my furbears, so to speak. Then Meowmy remembered that her Auntie had a kitty named Pipo, a Siamese, which is who I am named after! So actually, I should be called 'Pipo The Second'...MOL!
That cat was a character, and my Grandmeowmy did not care fur him at all, because he hissed at her! Then he would always get in her luggage when she was visiting there...Probably he was trying to mark his scent on her clothes!
Meowmy also found a few other pics that she herself made of some of my furbears, that eventually she will scan and put up on their pages. The best one is of Toki, when he got to visit my unfurbro's kindergarten class. He was that social!(She has lost a pic she made of her 1st kitty, Groucho, who liked to curl up in the bathroom sink...too bad, it was cute she says!)
Well the weather was nicer, today, and meowmy even could have the window open again. I am hoping that she will forget again to get my pearly white brushed...MOL!
June 7th 2010 7:42 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Today was so great! All the windows have been open most of the day. The sun was out, the birds were in the yard for my entertainment, my peeps played kitty games with me, a big new box came in the house...love those!...dog-guy was outside most of the day, I got some yums that I mooched from meowmy, and there were belly rubs from my pawppy!
I wish these days would never end...but now it is dark, the windows will be closed for the night, and all will be quiet in our dens and lairs...well, that is unless we get some zoomies or something...MOL!
June 8th 2010 9:01 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] I had the tail chasing zoomies today!I made so much noise while doing this that my unfurbro had to stop what he was doing to watch me ...and giggle!
If that wasn't bad enough, when I started up again, Minko jumped off the couch and attacked me! Hey! That's not nice! Here I am minding my own business, and plying nicely, and Minko decides he wants to put an end to my fun...what;s up with that?!
Minko should be nice to me today, and feel sorry fur me...HE got the DDP, and not me...so while I may be a tad jealous of him I would not attack him fur that...but him?! He is just a crazy kitty! Baby brofur and all that. (Never mind that he is my baby brofur by just a few days...MOL!)
Well, today there weren't any sun puddles...the clouds had taken over the sun and weren't allowing any bright warm rays to shine on us. BOO, HISS!
And even though the day had started with open windows, they soon had to be closed against the damp wind and drizzle.
Well, there is always tomorrow!
So in the evening, meowmy was doing interesting things at the table. Cutting little squares of colored paper, that she then arranged on these big white boards. Pawppy came by to look and comment...meowmy is doing picture boards fur my unfurbro's graduation pawrty. I was trying to help by looking over these things and trying to tell if my paws were able to rearrange things to my taste!
Oh-oh! I got busted from that activity very quickly!
So while the day was dreary, I can't truly say that it was boring! MOL!
June 9th 2010 5:54 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ] OMC! Meowmy was giggling so much this morning! She had the local radio station on, and the team of announcers was comparing some kitty tails...
One recalled when his kitty had gotten into the cold air return vent...and the other said it should have gone in the regular vents to clean them out with it's bushy tail...MOL!
Another one was telling about how his kitty made interesting remarks on the 'puter.But the best one was too funny. A truly hilarious cat-tail!
the announcer apparently has kittens, to put this in perspective.
He made a bowl of fresh strawberries, all fresh from his own garden, and they were on the counter, waiting to be the desert for diner.
He went back to work at his 'puter, and after a bit he heard a very strange noise...so he went to investigate...and lo and behold...there was a kitty, all curled up IN the bowl of berries!! MOL!!
Must be that this kitty wanted to find a nice soft place to sleep...or perhaps he thought he would help his pawppy make strawberry mush for jam making! Wonder what color his fur was after being in the berries...I hope it wasn't a white kitty! MOL!!
Here at Catster there is a place called Cat in the Clover...now there can also be 'The Cat In The Berries'!
Meowmy has been chuckling all day whenever she recalls that, and she thought that all you Catster peeps and furs would also enjoy hearing about it.
June 10th 2010 5:33 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 6 people already have ] Today, meowmy did some more of that cutting and pasting...of all those little coloured things she calls photos. Well, they got arranged on some big project boards. Then put into another room, because she's not sure if it all is exactly how it should be...fussy meowmy, just tack them down, and then we wouldn't have all this trouble...
Anyways, today being another nice, open window day, I am just going from window to window to enjoy all the different views and perspectives that a brainy mancat like me needs to do to keep up on things...
Meowmy goes back to the table where the partly finished boards are waiting...and some of the pics are in disarray, and even on the floor. Of course since I was nearby, she gave ME that LOOK! OMC! I am not a bad kitty, truly, meowmy I didn't do anything!
Then Meowmy feels a hefty breeze coming through the windows...so of course in a state of remorse that she had blamed me...she is the one who is busted for wrongly accusing me! MOL!! Always get all the evidence before you lay blame! MOL!!
At least, I was not in trouble...this time!
June 11th 2010 9:21 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] OMC! We are 3 for 3 this week...3 DDP' fur 3 pets! How cool is that!
Ist Minko had a DDP, then it was dog-guy's turn, and now it is my spawsial day!
We know how to get attention...and we kitties just love attention!
But do you know what? The first thing meowmy did today, was brush my teeth...what a way to treat a kitty who is spawsial! MOL!
And then she got out that vacuum machine. Torture in my ears!
She says life has to go on, even if fame is around or not! Whatever!
So I am needing to thank all those furs who sent messages, comments and presents! All were so furry greatly appawsiated!
And now meowmy being tired out will need to visit her bed... so that tomorrow she will be in fine form to meet all my needs...and those of the other residents here...MOL!

June 14th 2010 8:42 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Jezebel put her tag on me!
It goes like this:
I’ve been tagged to play a game of get to know you better!
1. What time do you go to bed?
I go to bed whenever I can, so that I will be fresh for any catventures that may come my way. A sun puddle is the best napping place, or one of the cat-appropriated doggy beds! MOL!
2. What is your favorite gift you have received and why?
The Laser light toy! I went NUTS the 1st time I was introduced to it!Much better than chasing my tail!
3. What's your favorite way to wake up and what's the first thing you do?
My favorite way to wake up, is to hear the upstairs door being opened, and seeing pawppy come out! Then He will give me a belly rub. It is my favorite and often done morning ritual!
4.What would you call yourself if you could choose your own name?
I think Prince Pipo would better suit my regal nature!
5. What was the last thing you ate that you really shouldn't of .
Like, Minko, I like to eat holes in used paper napkins, where the yummy aromas of foods still linger. A good nibble on the plastic shrink wrap on water bottles is always good, too.
6.What are you afraid of?
I am the bravest kitty! Only that vacuum cleaner perturbs my sense of equilibrium...I stick around to watch it, to make sure it does no evil, but when the 'wand' gets too close I will go and hide till it is in another area. NO way is meowmy ever going to vacuum me like she used to do to My furbear, Simba!
7.Do you have brothers and sisters?
I have a kitty brofur, a dog-guy who thinks he is my furbro, and 2 unfurbros.
8.What is your motto in life?
Feed ME! The bowl may not show any of the bottom...it has to remain covered with FOOD!
9. Would you like to be famous? Why or why not?
Fame would be nice...if everyfur stopped to rub my belly when paying homage to me! MOL!
10. What cartoon or comic book character best describes you?
Sadie from Cat Fancy!...Or perhaps the kitty in Mutts.
11. What super-power would you most like to have, and why?
Telescoping claws on my paws...to give the dog-guy a raking now and then...MOL!
12. If you could play sports, what you you play and why?
Bowling...I roll like a big ball, sometimes when I am chasing my tail! Or spinning, when I chase the laser light...that would be skating or some kind of dancing...
OK, then...that's all about me.
Now I need to put on my thinking cap to decide who to tag next!
June 15th 2010 8:17 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] I do so love to have my belly rubbed by the peeps that love me...
Every morning, my pawppy gives me some, and if he forgets, I roll over and miaow at him to get his attention, which usually works. I try to get more in when I notice that someone is walking past me, esp when I am in my nest on the love seat in the main throughfare of our den.
So the other day I was there, and I saw pawppy coming close by. OK! So I rolled over and did a big stretch, all the while voicing my opinion of needing more belly rubs!
My head was over the edge of the nest, and my paws were kneading in the airspace over my head, and you could hear my purrs from anywhere...It looked like I was waving! Waving...'Hello pawppy! Do you see me? Do you know that I am needing some more of those rubs, See my belly ios ready fur your fingers...' Waving in the air, about to slide off the nest on to the floor...Hey! That's not how I should get my rubs in! MOL!!
Evryfur giggled, but I did get my coveted belly rub, oooh it felt so good! Wish they would go on furevefur...I even grab the hands with my paws to keep them in the 'rub zone'!
Sweet dreams of belly rubs!
June 18th 2010 8:07 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] It is high season fur some types of allergies. The weather reports contain charts of which pollens are at high levels. My unfurbro must have a big problem with them, too. He snorts into those white and soft things a lot...I saw him put medicine in his nose, too... as well as taking some big pink pills. Glad I don't have to. There are tissue boxes all around my den.Always in easy reach from each area...when you need a tissue, you need it NOW!
Well, I have discovered a new amusement. No I do not pull out the soft white tissues, or shred them up if I find one lying around...I have been seen and caught eating the box that holds them...MOL!I put my exploratory paw in the opening and love the rustling sounds, and then also I like to bite on the plastic that keeps the tissues in place. Then I go to work on the cardboard part of the box. The one next to the 'puter is full of my teeth marks!
Just think! If my unfurbro didn't have allergy troubles I wouldn't have this tissue fun! The silver lining...MOL!

[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Well, Its been a busy week here at our den, where the happenings are normal and the peeps are above average...oh-oh! Now meowmy is going to be in trouble for plagiarizing...
Well, As far as us kitties go, things are rather mundane...we eat, we play , we sleep, we sit in sun puddles, etc.
Today we gave our pawppy some extra head bonks and purrs fur Father's Day. I honored his lap with my presence and kneaded upon it, too...
Most of the action lately was about unfurbro's graduation from highschool. He was in the top 10 of a class of about 250 students. So there were awards fur that and parties to go to and get ready fur...
Too bad they didn't save any ice cream fur us pets...That would have been yummy!
Well my furs need to go and find a cozy place to hide fur the night...
Maybe soon I will have some more interesting catstory to mew about...

[ Leave A Comment | 9 people already have ] Meowmy came home from walking with my dog brofur, and she was rather sad, because of the following:
A Poor Dead Kitty
A poor dead kitty
Lying on the road,
Inspired this ditty,
To honor its life.
Tiny and sweet,
Fur grey and white,
With tiny white feet,
In a tumbled heap.
Just a few months old,
Now lifeless and still,
At the curb, where it rolled,
After getting hit by a car.
Hopefully, it will be found,
By its owners,
For their pet that didn't come home.
No longer can kitty play,
Run or chase toy mice,
This made Meowmy sad today,
To see this bad sight.
Meowmy often wonders why people get pets and then don't take proper care of them, esp these teeny baby pets. It couldn't have been more than a few months old. So sad and senseless.This is the 3rd kitty that meowmy has seen killed on the road in our neighbourhood in a few weeks.
Please God, Don't let people get pets that they really don't care about. Amen.

[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Today, meowmy nabbed me 2 times at least.
Once to brush my teeth. Oh, and she was going to try and steal some of my furs with that evil vacuum cleaner...so I went behind the couch! I will only let her have the furs that I already left on things, but why she cleans them up is beyond me, because I will just put more there as soon as she is finished...MOL!
Then she got out that dreaded props bag...and the camera machine...and nabbed me right out my nest where I was sleeping. The nerve!
So she tortured me with clothes, necklaces and all sorts of silly stuff. I think that there must have been a million clicks of that camera.
Minko was on the table trying to distract meowmy by stealing stuff, he was actually trying to keep meowmy from pestering me with it...good Minko! But that just made it all take longer...
Anyways, meowmy has just finished posting these pics. Canada Day ones and 4th of July ones. Because of the dual countries we have to be loyal to in this blended furmily. July one is Canada's Birthday, (1867), and of course, July 4th is America's Birthday.
We get double fun and yums here...the privilege of our dual citizenships...
Have a nice weekend!

[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ] Tonight meowmy made some snacks with nuts in a dish, and chunks of cheese. Yum! I scored a tidbit of cheese...and meowmy was so kind as to give it to me in one of the rooms where the dog-guy isn't allowed!So I could enjoy it in peace! I wasn't that interested in the nuts, though my brofur who IS nuts got some of those...
Then I heard the familiar opening sounds of a plastic tub having its lid removed. That sound brings all of us running to the kitchen.
Meowmy was making ice cream cones! YUM!
Eventually I saw that she was at the end of her cone. I saw her give some to Minko. but the dog-guy was too close for me to be comfortable to get over to where she was, even though she was beckoning me...
I just stared at her. Then she got my esp message and got up and came over to me and let me lick the ice cream that she had on her finger...so yummy and cool.
I think I have learned a new trick, I have trained meowmy to do my bidding...I stare and she comes with yums!
June 28th 2010 8:53 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 6 people already have ] I am going to be a very smart kitty. We have a complete set of encyclopedias on the lower bookshelf. Right across from one of my nests. Well I was stretched on the floor in front of this row of big books. Meowmy watched me put my paws all over those encyclopedias, and rub on them..like I was trying to pull them off the shelf...so that I could peruse them with my big blue peepers...and then tell Minko and the dog-guy all about what I had learned from the sections on kitties and pups, both the wild ones and the domestic ones. Perhaps I shall read up about how to catch meeses and bugs, too. MOL!
Who says that you need to look efurthing up on the intercatnet.
June 29th 2010 8:49 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 12 people already have ] Well, ever since Meowmy cleaned up a box of 'junk' that was on top of the microwave, I have decided that it is good place fur me to watch the goings on from...So 1st I jump on top of the litterbox, then on to the microwave, and from there onto a tall shelving unit. Whoo-Hoo! Now I can see the whole house, since the front door and back door can be seen from each place...our house is rather open concept, strange fur a house that was built in 1907.
Well, meowmy was at the microwave...and suddenly I am sniffing at her hair...and chirping at her. She nearly dropped her stuff she was holding...then she realized that up there I could also reach a wall clock. It has 3 hands, including a sweep 2nd hand...OMC! A long time ago, Minko chewed that 2nd hand...and now it looks a bit funky!
I think meowmy worries that I too may try my teeth on that. Hey I am a good kitty...I only try to catch the cuckoo clock bird, or the chains from the 2 pendulum clocks...they are more fun.
Well, bye, I need to get off my perch and find some other stuff to do, since meowmy has shooed me away from this perch...shucks!
At least the windows are open. I can watch bugs and birds. And the dudes at the neighbours, who have been hired to clean up that yard, hasn't been mowed since last year! MOL! Now I will be able to see the birds over there, they won't be able to hide in the tall grass and weeds anmy more!
We are all wondering if soon we may get new peeps in that home, it is now in foreclosure. And a dump. So sad! A house needs peeps to make it a home, and to take care of it...
Oh, and I was a silly kitty this morning.
Meowmy was picking berries from our small patch, and she also brought in some fresh catnip! OMC! I was looking drunk...and spaced out! Good thing she didn't give that stuff to me while I was still up on the tall cabinet!
June 30th 2010 8:10 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] OMC! I was a DDP...again! Can this truly be random? I just had this honour not that long ago...But I will enjoy it no matter!
Today was another pawtastic day. The windows were again open. I will miss that when it gets hot again, tomorrow or Friday.
Thanks so furry much to all who sent messages and comments. And spawsial thanks to the very many furends who sent gifts to decorate my page. I have encouraged meowmy to write back and thanks all who did that, hopefurrly no one was missed...in which case this note will have to do.
Well I didn't jump on the microwave today, nor did I even try to catch the cukcoo bird...
I think Minko was jealous or something, he has been pestering me off and on all day. After supper he even dared to pick a fight with me about who could hide behind the couch...He was so naughty that meowmy sprayed him! OMC! He took off! MOL!
We both got a nice lick of ice cream today, YUM!
Happy Canada Day to all my Canadian furends and even those who aren't! Everyfur should be able to have fun tomorrow! My pawrents are going to a balloon festival. Too bad no pets are allowed. I would have loved to chase and mess with the tether ropes!
Purrs to all!
July 2nd 2010 11:08 am
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] The other day when the windows were still closed, I saw a big bug coming into my cattitory. Not allowed!
I stood up on my hind paws and stretched out to get that thing...but alas the glass was hindering my progress. So I chattered my feelings to it. Then I tried again...to no avail! Why does there have to be this glass there anyways, meowmy?
Then I stood up on my hind paws again, and double pawed at it. Looked I was digging to China through the glass to get at it. Meowmy saw this and I just know she was thinking, good thing that's the glass and not the screen! MOL!
She said it looked like I had invented a new dance...the glass dance!
Any partners out there who want to learn this new style of kitty boogieing?
In other mews, meowmy was at a balloon festival last night. She looked at her pics this morning...and one of the balloons is covered with kitties! Way too cool!
And, sadly, the Aunt of my meowmy whose late kitty I am named after,has just passed away at the age of 94. Such a sweet lady. She just went to bed and never woke up. This lady lived her life to the fullest, active every day, even the day before she went to heaven.Meowmy can at this time only talk with her cousins per phone and email, because her Aunt lived in the Netherlands.
On a happier note, also from the Netherlands...the Dutch soccer team has just won their semi final game in world cup play. Yeah!
Meowmy is flying the Dutch flag from her porch today! We have quite a collection of them at our den! MOL!
Hope evryfur has a happy and safe 4th of July holiday weekend!
Meowmy will spend a lot of time at the balloons, our furmily has 'VIP' passes, due to my pawppy's work.
July 4th 2010 8:21 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Today was the 4th of July!
Memorable day fur everyfur, I hope!
It was hot and muggy here, not very pleasant, esp after the nice week we had. Can't have open windows, now.
We had some very noisy displays of fireworks, next door, last evening. But tonight there are only minor noises of boomers from further away places, and parks.
There were a lot of airplanes the past couple of days, because of the local annual air show. Meowmy thought that the Raptor looked like a huge moth. OMC! I would have loved to see that, but then, maybe not...too noisy! Some quieter balloons sailed by one morning, They are prettier, and more pleasant on my ears.
My furmily had planned to go to the finale of the air show, tonight, which was a huge fireworks display, but because of the sultry weather and many bugs, they stayed home. I did not grumble about being able to sit on someone's lap as they watched the fireworks from D.C. on TV! Much more comfy! MOL!
My Pawppy used to go to those shows at the Capitol, when he was a little boy, that is where he grew up! How cool is that!
Hope that evryfur had a great time, today, and stayed safe!
July 5th 2010 9:18 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] OMC! Meowmy has gotten that awful feeling in her stomach again.
She was just reading the local news reports...and saw something about Siamese cats. That would be cats like me...That just jumps out at meowmy!
Well a animal rescue group in a nearby county, has been dealing with a lot of hoarding lately. This time there were about 66 Siamese kitties in a garage. OMC! What were those people thinking. The rescue group hopes that eventually most of them can be adopted out to new and good homes. On the premise that this type of kitty breed is quite desireable. Well that may be, but to meowmy any kitty should have a chance at having a loving and good home. She just prefers my type of breed for personal health reasons. But if she could, she would have any breed of kitty. But as for myself...I am glad that she chose me...MOL!
If there are any people out in Catster land who may wish to read about this and even help out you can go to WWMT.com (News Channel 3, its a Kalamazoo/Grand Rapids station). The phone # of the rescue group is Animal's Best Friend...269 998 9744 They also have a website at:animalsbestfriendfund.org/home.html
Sorry, I don't know how to make a link.
Lets hope that this story has a happy ending fur all the furs involved.
July 8th 2010 8:30 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] Well, folks and furs...I just don't have a lot to pawnder about, purr over or miaow to the wiorld of Catsterland.
But I didn't want to make you think that my furmily and I had disappeared or somefur like that.
We have just been a bunch of lazy cat dudes, it had been so hot. Meowmy can't hardly go out, she just wilts like a wet rag...the good thing about that is, though, that we get to see more of her lap! Or begging in the kitchen for tidbits. I have actually been 'trained' to come at the sound of opening yogurt or cottage cheese containers, or similar ones. Too bad meat and fish doesn't come in those...then I would just be there all the time. I used to stay away from the kitchen because dog-guy is almost always there, too...but believe it or not, meowmy has trained him to sit and wait until us royal kitties have had our share of the licks...then when she sees that we are done, dog-guy is released and he has a turn...So I think abnd hope that he knows who is in alpha spot in this den. MOL!
For nothing happening, My catretary managed quite a few words of kitty wisdom.
Here is something else that is on her mind. My grandmeowmy, far away in D.C., is 91, in poor health and did not do well at all in a rehab place. Too much dementia, they can't work with her at all. So now she is also not in any shape to be at her home, for safety reasons and needing much more care than the few hours a day that someone was coming in. So soon she will be going into a nursing home. Not what she would have wanted...but hopefully the activity around her will keep her occupied. She was just sleeping the days away at her home. We hope that it won't be too far from where her oldest son lives so that he will be able to visit her regularly, he doesn't have a car, so it would need to be accessible by public transit.
We can only hope and pray for the best.
Bye. Night-night. I think that Minko is going to mew a few catty things about me...
July 9th 2010 8:22 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Well last few days, dog guy has been outside a lot, because there is a ground hog living under a pile if garbage at the neighbours house. Man, must be nice to be able to look out the window and then run outside to chase/stalk whatever catches your eye! We are stuck with just window shopping/hunting as it were...
Minko wrote about how I was smelling up the place, but dog guy has beat me out by far! he came inside after being out in our back woods fur a while...and since it was furry warm, he grabbed a drink out of OUR water bowl...the nerve!...and plopped down beside meowmy. I was on the CPU beside her...my little nose started to twitch like a bunny...MOL! I think if meowmy's nose could twitch she would have looked like Samantha, from Bewitched...MOL! Well dog guy had found something which to him was perfume, and he had anointed himself with it...OMC! Into the bath fur him!
And didn't he do it the next day again?! But then meowmy saw where the Yuck pile was...ans she got rid of it. So hopefurrly, no more stinky dog guy.
We have been having a lot of humming birds at our back window, and I can sit there to watch them. They like our bee balm plants. This morning meowmy was standing there, too, with a red shirt on, and one of the hummers flew up to the window to see if there was another big flower to sip from...MOL!
Those little birds are a lot of amusement, for kitties and peeps alike!
July 10th 2010 8:49 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Well tonight when Pawppy was going to leave me and go upstairs to bed, I gave him my paws. My begging pleading kneading, waving at him in the air paws.
I just did not want to be missing him for the whole long night. I insisted that he rub my belly...and rub my belly and on and on! MOL! I can ignore him for hours, but when he walks past my nest to go to the stairs, I know that he will go up there and shut the door. Period. No kitties allowed up there. :(
So he rubbed me and chatted me up, so I was writhing with ecstasy...MOL! And then he stopped...so hard to let him go up there...I wish meowmy didn't have health issues so that we would be allowed up there, and on and in those soft cozy beds, I know they are there, because I sneaked up there a few times...MOL!
Speaking of health issues, Meowmy and Pawppy went out earlier this evening. They went to the 'Relay of Life' an event sponsored by the American Cancer Society, as a fund raiser. Meowmy is a cancer survivor, so she took part in the 'Victory Lap'.
After that there was a dinner. So meowmy got to chat with many other survivors, and help with the memories of so many who did not. Poignant.
Meowmy was surprised by the numbers there, as well as the variety of ages, from the very young, (4 years old), to the elderly.
Someone she was chatting with asked her how long she had been a survivor, and Meowmy said 4 years. Then she realized that it was exactly 4 years to the day (10 July, 2006) that she was diagnosed. Wow! A lot has happened in those 4 years, but now she seems to be on the healthy side of that detour.
July 12th 2010 9:57 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] Right now the pets outnumber the peeps! Pawppy went to visit his mom. who will soon be transferred into a nursing home. Unfurbro #2 went to a convention for youth from our Church. So that leaves unfurbro #1 and Meowmy. and 2 kitties and one dog guy!
But in a few days all will be back to normal, whatevfur that means!
Not much going on...but I guess that is a good thing!
No poopies, barfies or other calamaties!
Just a break in a few days ago at the neighbours house... but it is vacant...
July 14th 2010 9:41 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] I heard the ice cream getting opened...so I ran into the kitchen, that place where if you have the smarts and the patience, you might score a yum or two.
But I was a tad slow on the draw, and Minko and Dog-guy beat me there. Well meowmy made dog-guy sit and wait, Minko got his teaspoon up on the washing machine, and I? Yes meowmy had some fur me, too, but I was too nervous around dog-guy. So I ran off and went behind the furniture...meowmy followed me and coaxed me to come out fur the yummy ice cream...but I just came out part way. The I. C. was dripping through meowmy's fingers, now...sticky, drippy and wet. So she put her hand under it and went back to the kitchen and let dog-guy lick it off...stupid me.
Meowmy tried again, but this time I was in a nest, so I did take a few licks...
Earlier today I was really all wired up and bouncing around like a cuckoo cat! Chased my tail, chased Minko. chased the dog-guy fur no reason, chased imaginary things and had tons of opinions, too. Meowmy and unfurbro were just giggling at me so much. I guess it was an attack of the zoomies, and there wasn't even any sugar in me from the ice cream, yet! MOL!
July 18th 2010 12:16 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ] Well, my peeps are all back home now and we are complete again. Meowmy made a nice Sunday dinner, and they all sat down to eat. Pork roast, squash and spuds, and salads, too...I think the meat tantalized me...Meowmy got up to get something from the kitchen...and I silently jumped on her seat, to maybe try and sneak a bit of tasty meat morsel...just by sliding my crafty paw up from under the tablecloth...MOL!
Usually at mealtimes I may be at the 'puter chair, observing it all, or on the condo so as I can give back rubs to pawppy, or I may be on the floor waiting for a game of laser chase...So...meowmy did not expect what happened next...OMC!
She brought what ever it was to the table, got in front of the chair and tried to sit down...ON TOP of ME! She reached back to find out what the cause of her not being able to sit down was...and felt furry me! Squished almost! OOPSIE! Sorry meowmy, I didn't mean to give you a heart attack...but you almost gave me a bigger one!
She felt so bad, that I had to furgive her almost right away...but she did admonish me that if in the future I felt the need to borrow her seat, at least to let her know about it! MOL!
Well, hope you all have a great nonflattening day!
July 21st 2010 10:17 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ] Today, Meowmy picked me up from a nice napping spot. W She took me to the bathroom to brush my teeth...but when she moved me to get the brush neasr my pearly whites...I growled at her! OMC! I have no idea why!
Earlier I had been nibbling at the shrink wrap on some bottles, and while meowmy was at the 'puter, I let some projectiles eminate from out of the depths of my belly, like Mt Vesuvius! But that was early in the day, and none more happened.
I chased Minko around in a fit of temper, because I guess I was jealous of his DDP...MOL!
I had the pleasure of beating up the dog-guy when he decided to venture too close to my perch...he wasn't even looking at me! MOL! That is so much fun to ambush him...it makes meowmy giggle, too, because she knows that dog-guy is scared of me! Him, Who could eat me in 2 or 3 bites...
It seems to be a bit cooler this night, so maybe even fur a while, meowmy might open the windows for us. It is one of my favorite things, to bask on the condo, in a sunbeam and watch fur birdies or other critters that frequent our yard.
Gotta go now and take a nice long nap, so that I will be ready fur any catventures of tomorrow!

[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] That bowling game that many of our Catster furends were discussing a few days ago, has changed its lanes, and now the game is in full swing at our lair's location. Boom, band clunk, crash. They must be using huge metal balls and sending them down the lanes more than one at a time because there is so much sparking going on, too. And the speed of those rolling balls, created such a vacuum behind them that there was even a tornado here, last night, and we are on the lookout fur more tonight. Some party! I didn't know that my angel furblings could conjure up such wildness. And all the rivers of sadness combined to make floods around here, too. I know that I heard meowmy complaining about the dryness of the earth, but we have had almost 4 inches of rain from all that sadness. People! Think! Your kitties and puppies who live ATB with our furblings are not needing all this tears, they need your cheers fur this bowling game! Pups against the kitties...just like in that new movie!
Seriously, though, meowmy has added her own fair share to that flooding river, not just for kitties.
So I wanted to cheer her up and everyother fur, too, with this sort of silly pawndering about the state of our minds and the bad weather.
Oh and My furbling, Minko got to be DDP again, today! What?! Twice in one week. I shall have to go and do some mancat work and fix that robo-kitty, so the wheels don't stick and catch the same kitty in its diary filter all the time...MOL! Then I can jump in the cogs instead!
Purrs to all and to all a good night!
July 24th 2010 8:46 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] I have gotten a tag...
Not the kind that goes on your collar, but one that is like the kids game...someone touches you and you have to do something and then you get to touch/tag the next one...in this case kitty, Not only that, This game is so generous that you get to tag 5 kitty pals! OMD! Won't they be cataprised when they find out that I have 'reached out to touch someone'!
So this is the game: If you don't have an 'official tag', you can just play anyways and start a new line of taggings...
...by my friend Jezebel, (and Thomas, too), to play this new game. Thanks!
1. Do you ever wake your parent up in the night?
I will wake up to play a chase game with Minko, munch a few morsels of kibble, check to see that dog-guy is behaving, and use that private place, too.Or I will decide it is time to have a mouse game. All of these activities can cause some noises...
2. Do you ever tear up things?
I like to rip[ up some of my toy mice, but actually my furbling does a much more thorough job on those little meeces. Some of them are in shreds. I like to bite at things, too, my latest fascination is with the box of tissues. I like to bite and nibble on the edge where my peeps pull out the tissues.For some reason, I am not too interested in the content of those boxes...or else meowmy would get rather perturbed, I think...MOL
3. What is your favorite treat?
I like to lick little bits of yogurt, cottage cheese, and things of that nature, usually from meowmy's fingers. I know the sounds of those containers when they are opened, and it makes me come running to see what might be on the current treat menu! I like teeny bits of meat and fish, too. And catnip!
But I don't really know that I have a fave...
4. Can you fetch something when asked to do so?
I do not play fetch...but I do come when my name is called. I can run after my toys and pick them up, if they are tossed fur me, but then I just play with them wherevfur they landed...I don't 'return to sender' for another round...but one of my furbling angels was furry good at fetch! He brought back the milk jug rings.
5. Have you ever lived any place other than where you live now?
I have lived with my same furmily evfur since coming out of my birth home at about 8 weeks of age.And I have always lived in this same house. One night I lived outside by mistake...meowmy didn't see me and Minko go through the open door, and she didn't look for us when she locked it up for the night...so we went and huddled under a bush all night. At least it was a warm summer evening, and there was no rain.
So now you can just copy the questions into your own diary, and make your own answers...ans then you get to choose 5 more taggees!
PEE S: I am not too sure who I will tag, but I do have a large bunch of good kitty furends to choose from!

[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] OMC!! We have had a disaster in our county!
Almost a million gallons of oil has sloshed out of a broken pipeline, into a creek and then into a large river running through our county. Not a nice way to get into the news. This happened yesterday, and it started about 25 - 30 miles from our home, but we can smell it here. UGH! To the max! Thick, black, gooey, stinky, vile oil. We see, smell and experience all this horror, it must be unimaginable in the Golf area...
At 730 am there was the distinct foul and pungent odor of petroleum in the air. So now, even though it was cool all night, and less humid, we couldn't even have our windows open! Bummer!
Some peeps who live right near this mess, had to be evacuated.Due to all the fumes seeping into their homes.
Technology and modern life styles certainly has its drawbacks and risks.
I hope that soon it will get cleaned up. At least they were able to stop the gushing oil quite quickly, but not quickly enough to avert this environmental fiasco, and health hazard.
When meowmy got up this morning, my pawppy said that she should not open any windows, or do outside things, because he said there was 'a stink'...She thought he meant that some skunk dude had fired its weapon, but if only that was all it was!
Hope you all have a pawsome day, with sweet smelling summer scents!
July 30th 2010 11:05 am
[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] Well the oil spill fiasco and major diaster continue to be the talk of the county, and nation. Even it has been in the Canadian news.
And why not? Our city has worked so hard to get this river back to a beautiful state, and have done a wonderful job. My unfurbros and sometimes my pawppy have done volunteer Saturdays doing the annual River Cleanup. The boys did it every year for at least 6. Through their schools and my pawppy's work. People could fish, stroll along, canoe and just enjoy the nature that was all around it. Now it is a black, stinky, yucky dangerous mess.
And so many creatures are dying or have nowhere to live or find their food. This makes me so angry and feeling bad. And I am just a little bitty kittycat. Our furmily is not directly affected, but we feel sick about it all.
Hopefully the crews that are working will be able to get most of the mess cleaned up.
A lot of people are getting sick from the fumes and the water is now not potable anymore for those living within a certain distance of this mess. Not to mention those peeps whose businesses are affected, such as campgrounds, etc.
The biggest fear is that this oil may end up in Lake Michigan.
OK, then, now here is some more cute and humorous kitty talk:
July 25 was the 23rd anniversary of my meowmy and pawppy. Concats to them...and to us fur being so smart and privileged to be part of this furmily...
Anyways, pawppy gave meowmy a big box, for a spawsial purresent. Meowmy had a good idea, she thought.
She carefully took the wrapping paper off the box.
After the purresent stuff was oohed and aawed over, she took the paper and set it on the floor like a big tunnel. Of course it was like a kitty magnet!
Almost right away we were at it, Minko and I. And we jumped right in, shot through it, pounced on each other coming through the other end...peered out of it, took our mice toys through it, and napped in it. Meowmy took some pics, but they didn't turn out too good, because the light in the tunnel was enhanced by the whiteness of the wrapping paper.
The most fun we had with it was chasing each other in a silly kitty zoomie frenzy, right through that kitty magnetic, crinkly tunnel of love; so called because if there hadn't been love for my pawrents, then we would never have gotten this super toy! And even after almost a week, I have not ripped it to shreds...I am the one who bites paper and plastic. (Minko does his share of biting, too, but usually on cardboard.)
Thank you meowmy and pawppy fur having an anniversary!

[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] Food thievery, to be exact
Well meowmy was mewing fur us with some other pups and kits, about adventures in food land...mostly about the stealing thereof!
I must be an oddball kitty, because I haven't done that...at least not that meowmy can remember about.
Dog-guy, Minko and some of my angel furblings have a better reputation with that line of work.
I must be a goody two shoes...but for me that would be goody four shoes. Hey! Wait! I don't wear shoes, even though I always have my stockings on...
Meowmy's 1st kitty, Groucho would counter surf when she was not around...and bite holes in bread bags, open cupboards to snoop around in them and once he took a few good nibbles out of some cupcakes! Funny though that he never managed to snitch any meats or fish! He reserved his begging talent for those...would come to your lap, stand up on his hind legs and paw at your lap or legs or arm, whatevfur he could reach! Along with the classic mryowl of a Siamese!
According to news sources the oil spill clean up is continuing. Last night the peeps drove over the bridge on their way home from church, and the river is full of booms and boats and other equipment. A stark reminder of what is going on. At least we don't have anymore issues with the stink.
Gotta go and make sure dog-guy is behaving himself...or I shall have to box his ears. That is one iof my mancat duties around here...guarding my peeps and Minko from the sometimes evil dog-guy!
And I snoopervised unfurbro with the shrub trimming work he was doing...I sat in the window and mewd at him and rubbed my paw on the glass to let him know which ones were still obtructing my outdoor view! MOL!

[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] I have sequestered my meowmy to do some work fur me! My photobook was getting rather obese, here, so I have done a mancatly job of trying to thin it down. The first part of which was to start up a 'new cat page', to show off myself and Minko as a duo. It is called 'We Bees Siamese'.Of course eventually it will grow and then who knows what meowmy will do...
She still needs to cull some of my pics from my own page that have both me and Minko in them...but for now at least she made a start!
Don't think that I should put a diary there, though...that would be kind of like cheating!
Though it would be nice if all you kitties attached yourself to that new page by way of being furry kitty pals. Can't ever have too many of those!
If there is something new there that I want you to see, (and admire...), then I will mention it in the regular page as a referral.

[ Leave A Comment ] Lately, it seems we have been dealing with heavy doses of sadness and sicknesses.
For a complete change of pace, I have made this entry pretty much non-kitty. The only kitty stuff would be to get your furbaby, (Or furbabies), a nice cup of your favorite beverage, then read, enjoy, giggle and have a good evening/day!
Purring that you will have fun and appawsiate this, as gleaned from something sent to my meowmy from her sister...
"takes a minute to read but....very interesting!!
THIS IS REAL WRITE UP!!!
Read all the way to the end............... This took a lot of work to put together!!!
You think English is easy???
Read to the end . . . a new twist
1) The bandage was wound around the wound.
2) The farm was used to produce produce .
3) The dump was so full that it had to refuse more refuse .
4) We must polish the Polish furniture.
5) He could lead if he would get the lead out.
6) The soldier decided to desert his dessert in the desert.
7) Since there is no time like the present , he thought it was time to present the present .
8) A bass was painted on the head of the bass drum.
9) When shot at, the dove dove into the bushes.
10) I did not object to the object.
11) The insurance was invalid for the invalid.
12) There was a row among the oarsmen about how to row
13) They were too close to the door to close it.
14) The buck does funny things when the does are present.
15) A seamstress and a sewer fell down into a sewer line.
16) To help with planting, the farmer taught his sow to sow.
17) The wind was too strong to wind the sail.
18) Upon seeing the tear in the painting I shed a tear.
19) I had to subject the subject to a series of tests.
20) How can I intimate this to my most intimate friend?
Let's face it - English is a crazy language. There is no egg in eggplant, nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple. English muffins weren't invented in England or French fries in France . Sweetmeats are candies while sweetbreads, which aren't sweet, are meat. We take English for granted. But if we explore its paradoxes, we find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.
And why is it that writers write but fingers don't fing, grocers don't groce and hammers don't ham? If the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn't the plural of booth, beeth? One goose, 2 geese.. So one moose, 2 meese? One index, 2 indices? Doesn't it seem crazy that you can make amends but not one amend? If you have a bunch of odds and ends and get rid of all but one of them, what do you call it?
If teachers taught, why didn't preachers praught? If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat? Sometimes I think all the English speakers should be committed to an asylum for the verbally insane. In what language do people recite at a play and play at a recital? Ship by truck and send cargo by ship? Have noses that run and feet that smell?
How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites? You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language in which your house can burn up as it burns down, in which you fill in a form by filling it out and in which, an alarm goes off by going on.
English was invented by people, not computers, and it reflects the creativity of the human race, which, of course, is not a race at all. That is why, when the stars are out, they are visible, but when the lights are out, they are invisible.
PS. - Why doesn't 'Buick' rhyme with 'quick' ?
You lovers of the English language might enjoy this.
There is a two-letter word that perhaps has more meanings than any other two-letter word, and that is 'UP.'
It's easy to understand UP , meaning toward the sky or at the top of the list, but when we awaken in the morning, why do we wake UP? At a meeting, why does a topic come UP ? Why do we speak UP and why are the officers UP for election and why is it UP to the secretary to write UP a report ?
We call UP our friends. And we use it to brighten UP a room, polish UP the silver; we warm UP the leftovers and clean UP the kitchen. We lock UP the house and some guys fix UP the old car. At other times the little word has real special meaning. People stir UP trouble, line UP for tickets, work UP an appetite, and think UP excuses.. To be dressed is one thing, but to be dressed UP is special.
And this UP is confusing: A drain must be opened UP because it is stopped UP. We open UP a store in the morning but we close it UP at night.
We seem to be pretty mixed UP about UP!
To be knowledgeable about the proper uses of UP, look the word UP in the dictionary. In a desk-sized dictionary, it takes UP almost 1/4th of the page and can add UP to about thirty definitions. If you are UP to it, you might try building UP a list of the many ways UP is used. It will take UP a lot of your time, but if you don't give UP, you may wind UP with a hundred or more. When it threatens to rain, we say it is clouding UP . When the sun comes out we say it is clearing UP .
When it rains, it wets the earth and often messes things UP .
When it doesn't rain for awhile, things dry UP .
One could go on and on, but I'll wrap it UP , for now my time is UP , so...
it is time to shut UP !
Oh . . . one more thing:
What is the first thing you do in the morning & the last thing you do at night? U-P! "
Hope that you all got a good giggle session from this non kitty humor. Were you all cracked UP?!?
PEE S: Some furs may find themselves living in the U.P. That is part of the state of Michigan...MOL!!

[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Last night it actually was cool and not humid, either.
So when Meowmy got up, she opened all the windows. ALL of them, WIDE! And the cool fresh breezes wafted in, carrying interesting and intriguing smells from the great outdoors. Right to my perch on the condo.
OH, how I love that. And not only the fresh air and smells, but I can hear the birdies singing and see them hunting for seeds in the grass, and for bugs in the garden.
I can see bugs right up close if they start to fly into the screen, or crawl on it....Wham! I slapped at one with my cat-slap perfection...but it got away...stupid screen! MOL!
After a while I went to the middle level of the condo which is like a little den. I curl up in there, put my head on the window sill, and then I have the perfect viewing spot. No one can come up and ambush me...that is what Minko will try to do...I can peruse everything of my extended territory, and it is all in perfect comfort.
Made all the more fine by the warming sunrays as they come around to this southern side of my lair.
And then? OMC! What a spoil sport. Meowmy came and shut all the windows again...something about the warm temps and the airconditioning bills...BUMMER!
Well, maybe in the morning again.
Well I stayed there a bit longer, until the menacing Minko came round to oust me...for some reason I am a pacifist and just growl a bit, and then let him have the place he wants, even though I was there first.
Bye! Off to find some other place to rest myself!
August 8th 2010 11:51 am
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Meowmy heard some loud yowlings from behind the couch.
Then out I came with an old hunk of mouse fur from a mouse toy that Minko had dismembered in one of his attack modes.
I pranced around with it fur a while, then suddenly I threw it up into the air. Very high, and I went airborne like a flying squirrel to catch it in mid air. I did this several times. Made meowmy and unfurbro giggle and giggle! Then I took the fur and ran up and down the stairs with it a few times. Then I floofed up my tail into a big U-shaped brush, took off at break neck speed into the living room, along with more yowlings fur good effect.
Then I just dumped the fur out of my jaws and ran around the house in a state of kitty zoomies. Meowmy had hoped that I would do the airborne acrobatics and gymnastics, but nope...eventually, I just stalked off to a hidey hole to nap...

[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Here is a bizarre story that made meowmy seethe at 1st, then feel very sad for this poor kitty. That man needs a lot of help!
I hope that this kitty will find a loving home and never need to worry about such ill treatment again.What a horror. :~(
I will be purraying fur this kitty. He needs to know love! ♥
NY police find live cat 'marinating' in car trunk
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -- Police say a traffic stop led to animal cruelty charges after they found a live cat "marinating" in oil and peppers in the trunk of a car.
Buffalo police say officers heard the cat meowing when they stopped 51-year-old Gary Korkuc of Cheektowaga to ticket him for running a stop sign Sunday night.
They say they checked the trunk and found 4-year-old Navarro in a cage, his fur covered with oil, crushed red peppers and chili peppers.
Police say Korkuc told them he did it because Navarro was ill-tempered. Korkuc was charged with cruelty and released; his phone number isn't listed.
Police say he told them he was going to cook Navarro. Korkuc also told officers a number of things that didn't make sense, including that his neutered male cat was pregnant.
Animal advocates have cleaned Navarro and put him up for adoption.
If I see any more about this kitty I will update it here.
Please God, I purray that all kitties everywhere may have safe and loving homes, and that they may never have to suffer abuse or fear. You love all Your created creatures and so I purray that You will ever keep them in Your tender loving care.♥
Right after I posted this entry, I found the same thing in the Cat's Meow Blog. My purrayer has already been answered fur this kitty, as he has been adopted! Yeah! :~)

[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] Here is some cute but thought provoking tidbits...don't worry about the doggy stuff too much...
Marriage or Relationship
If you want someone who will eat whatever you put in front of him and never say it's not quite as good as his mother's
then adopt a dog.
If you want someone always willing to go out, at any hour,
for as long and wherever you want ...
then adopt a dog.
If you want someone who will never touch the remote, doesn't care
about football, and can sit next to you as you watch romantic movies
..then adopt a dog.
If you want someone who is content to get on your bed just to
warm your feet and whom you can push off if he snores
..then adopt a dog !
If you want someone who never criticizes what you do, doesn't care if you are pretty or ugly, fat or thin, young or old, who acts as if every word you say is especially worthy of listening to, and loves
you unconditionally, perpetually ..
..then adopt a dog.
BUT, on the other hand, if you want someone who will never come when you call, ignores you totally when you come home, leaves hair
all over the place, walks all over you, runs around all night and only comes home to eat and sleep, and acts as if your entire existence is solely to ensure his happiness ....
..then adopt a CAT!
You thought I was gonna say... marry a man, didn't you? MOL!!
See I told you the doggy part was OK!
I,Pipo don't want to post doggy stuff,I am a doggy beater-upper. Meowmy thought that I should be the poster of this one because of how it ended! MOL!
August 15th 2010 11:31 am
[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] This is a little story from several years ago, when I, Pipo and Minko were not yet bornded, as my unfurbro would have said, also many years ago...
It is something that our angel sisfur Suki did, and while it was frustrating fur meowmy, it is rather amewsing now...(Meowmy posted this in response to Mimu's [http://www.catster.com/cats/957265] new litter Robot)
Here is a funny story: Many years ago, when I, Suki was still upon this earth, meowmy got a Litter Maid for me and Groucho and Toki. We all took to it, even though the raking process was a tad noisy!
Well. I was fascinated by it, and I would come running every time some one had used it, and the motor was going. I think I wanted to catch the rake or the mouse that lived in there that made it go...
It got so that I would not leave the vicinity of the box...so meowmy turned off the motor, and only turned it on when she was there to keep me out of the box...well one day my pawrents were gone all day, so they left it on. Bad mistake! When they got home the thing was broken...Kaput, useless! Why?
Who knows. Meowmy got a replacememnt thinking it was a faulty machine...but when the new one was set up, soon it wasn't working too good either...turns out that I had started to sit on the rake, while it was engaged...trying to go for a ride or something!
So that was the end of that...now we just have regular sifting boxes...even though I can only look on from Bridgeland! MOL!
Pipo and Minko can do some cuckoo things at times, since we Siamese are rather too curious for our own good, but you know that...MOL! So that is why no further electronic devices for kitties have made themselves known at our lair!
Good luck, Mimu, with your Robot...don't get any ideas from this story...MOL!
I wonder what we would do with one of those...good thing was that the store took it back as faulty merchandise, even though it was well used...MOL!!
Have a great day!

[ Leave A Comment | 6 people already have ] Wow!
Mr Einstein knew that Catster stuff long before its time!
Should Catster give him an honorary page? MOL!
Afterall, we kitties are doing this kind of thing all the time...
This is from something meowmy got in an e-mail...source unknown...
Albert Einstein, when asked to describe radio, replied: "You see, wire
telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New
York and his head is meowing in LosAngeles. Do you understand this?
And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they
receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat."
This will help speed your day along the giggle wires!

[ Leave A Comment | 6 people already have ] I am getting annoyed by meowmy's almost ever present camera...I don't like the 'ping' it makes when she turns it on, I don't like the flash, and I just don't like the invasion of my privacy!
Like today, I was having a great tail chasing event, and out comes that evil camera again...Meowmy tries to get it from the desk, and turn it on, in such a way to make me think that she is not paying me any attention...but I know better, I saw her watching me having fun with my tail. So There. No way, meowmy, no pictures, no videos...even though I know you have just discovered how to do that with your camera...
I just sat there and stared at her, while her battery was being wasted...MOL!
Then just when she thought I was going to perform...I got up and stalked off, with my not being chased tail, straight up...Humpf! Can't get any privacy around here...My tail is mine! Nobody else can see it.
So now meowmy has a bet on with herself: How long befur she can actually get a pic of me chasing my tail...and will there efur be a video clip!?
...Not if I have anything to mew in the matter! MOL!

[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] OMC! My unfurbro is leaving tomorrow, to go back to school! I will miss him so much. He is the one who really know how to make me have fun chasing the laser light. He does it even better than meowmy! MOL!
I will have to hang on with my paws in a big kitty hug, when he says his goodbyes to me...like I do to pawppy each evening when he says goodnight to me and rubs my belly.
Meanwhile I shall just pretend everything is normal...and wash Minko's face and ears...until meowmy gets out that so and so camera. Then I shall go find another place to relax...and ruminate upon the abandonment of my unfurbro.
August 26th 2010 8:26 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] Meowmy has been kind of busy lately...moving boxes around, cleaning up big piles of papers and unfurbro stuff, bringing home more stuff, in crinkly bags, and making big piles with boxes that are heavy and filled up. Then she has to try and maneuver around all these stacks and piles...and so do we kitties, except that we can also jump on or over them...meowmy doesn't like that, though...she thinks we will knock things over. I have inspected quite a few of these box and other stacks...and they mostly smell of unfurbro #2. Hmmm. Where did the ones go that smelled like unfurbro #1?
Oh yeah...those went with the first round of college bound delivery services as rendered by meowmy and pawppy.
Well, I got to spread my self over the couch where unfurbro #1 was sitting all summer...because now that he is gone, there is lots more room there. That is one advantage of missing someone..you get to be in their space and no one picks you up to move you, or takes up the places you wanted to be in.
And another thing I noticed is that there are a lot less cords to trip over...and now they are not tempting me to chew on them either!
Today the A/C has been off all day and we have enjoyed fresh air, through open windows and lots of sunpuddles, too.
Refreshing relief from the past weeks of heat and humidity. But the weatherman-dude said that we will certainly be getting more of that yucky weather soon enough!
I do not know if meowmy will be putting a 'costume' on me or Minko for Halloween...as our furmily mostly ignores this 'holiday'. Maybe if she can find one that is not from ghosts, witches or the like, since that is mostly what she finds so objectionable.
Me? I would have to agree...don't like to wear anything! MOL! I can just be myself as a naked kitty! MOL! I shall call it 'Kitty au Naturel'!
I think I saw meowmy bring in sme orange items a while ago...I sure do hope that I will not have to be a pumpkin or something...
Well, its time to go and have a romp and wrestle with Minko...coolish weather makes us frisky!

[ Leave A Comment | 8 people already have ] Meowmy has been getting more and more annoyed and frustrated with our purr board.
It just is not working! :(
She sent this letter to HQ:
We are having a lot of trouble with the purr board. We run windows XP and use firefox...but I don't think this is a problem with tech from my end as these have been working fine until you stated that reminders for special dates were coming soon.
Sometimes I get updates, but the link to them is not working and then I get the latest info from several days ago. I have to click each item individually, if they even are coming up...even after multiple refreshers of the page...and I even logged off and re-logged in. Then I shut down the computer and started afresh...same issue.
I hear of some others who are getting frustrated by this flea...Please fix, ASAP. Thank you and many mews.
Are any of you other kitty furs getting this problem?
Have a good evening.

[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] OMC! It is so hot today. 94, and the travel temp thing said 99. Ugh1 Too hot. All of us are hiding in our house with some nice artificial coolness from that A/C thing. Thank Catness that we have it though! Meowmy would not be able to function in heat...hot flashes are bad enough in regular temps! MOL!
A couple of days ago, meowmy was getting rid of some dowdy looking plant life in the garden, just under the kitchen window. All the bee balm, (Strange, though, only hummingbirds come to the bee balm...never any bees!), needed to be cleaned up, and the bleeding heart plants were done ages ago...who do they bleed for anyways?!
The windows were all open so that the house could have a breath of nice cool air. And of course we kitties could enjoy that, too.
Well, I heard meowmy out there, so I had to see what she was doing...after all I am a nosy parker of a kitty. You know curiosity got the cat...well that is me and Minko for sure.
So when I got to the window sill, there she was...not paying me any attention. So I made a chirp! Mewrp?!
OMC! She looked right up and giggled at me. So I kept her company by giving her instructions on the chores she was doing, and my opinion on lots of other things, too. MIAOW!
It sure can be a tiring mancat job, to be snoopervising meowmy, to make sure she gets everything done just right! MOL! So I left my post to take a nap in the dog-guy's bed, since he was outside doing his own type of snoopervising...

[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] Well I have at camp this summer.
We did lots of stuff there, some of which I really enjoyed and some not so much.
This went on most of the summer.
Phew! I am tired out! But it is a good tired!
Minko was there, too. Soon meowmy will post his things.
I roasted marshmallows, spent time by the river, made paw-print paintings...YUCK!...slept under the stars, and did a big avatar drawing.
There was other stuff, too such as talent shows, eating contests, classes to learn cool stuff, crafts and so on.
I won 1st place in the paw-print painting!
Minko and I also won an award for being in the group of most active pussycats at camp.
Francis (752250) was very kind and made some pictures for me, too. Thank you very much.
Well, now I can get back to being a regular kitty again! Hah! MOL!

[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] There has been a lot of rain in some parts of our country, from the remnants of hurricanes etc...
I don't like the rain...I want to stay warm, cozy and DRY! Thank you!
Anyways, meowmy read this quaint and wise little blurb somewhere. She thought it would make you smile.
A little girl had been shopping with her Mom in WalMart. She must have been 6 years old, this beautiful red haired, freckle faced image of innocence.
It was pouring outside. The kind of rain that gushes over the top of rain gutters, so much in a hurry to hit the earth it has no time to flow down the spout.. We all stood there, under the awning, just inside the door of the WalMart.
We waited, some patiently, others irritated because nature messed up their hurried day.
I am always mesmerized by rainfall. I got lost in the sound and sight of the heavens washing away the dirt and dust of the world. Memories of running, splashing so carefree as a child came pouring in as a welcome reprieve from the worries of my day.
Her little voice was so sweet as it broke the hypnotic trance we were all caught in, 'Mom let's run through the rain,' she said.
'What?' Mom asked.
'Let's run through the rain!' She repeated.
'No, honey. We'll wait until it slows down a bit,' Mom replied.
This young child waited a minute and repeated: 'Mom, let's run through the rain..'
'We'll get soaked if we do,' Mom said.
'No, we won't, Mom. That's not what you said this morning,' the young girl said as she tugged at her Mom's arm.
'This morning? When did I say we could run through the rain and not get wet?'
'Don't you remember? When you were talking to Daddy about his cancer, you said, 'If God can get us through this, He can get us through anything!'
The entire crowd stopped dead silent.. I swear you couldn't hear anything but the rain.. We all stood silently. No one left. Mom paused and thought for a moment about what she would say.
Now some would laugh it off and scold her for being silly. Some might even ignore what was said. But this was a moment of affirmation in a young child's life. A time when innocent trust can be nurtured so that it will bloom into faith.
'Honey, you are absolutely right. Let's run through the rain. If GOD let's us get wet, well maybe we just need washing,' Mom said.
Then off they ran. We all stood watching, smiling and laughing as they darted past the cars and yes, through the puddles. They got soaked.
They were followed by a few who screamed and laughed like children all the way to their cars. And yes, I did.
I ran. I got wet. I needed washing.
Circumstances or people can take away your material possessions, they can take away your money, and they can take away your health. But no one can ever take away your precious memories...So, don't forget to make time and take the opportunities to make memories everyday.
To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under heaven.
I HOPE YOU STILL TAKE THE TIME TO RUN THROUGH THE RAIN.
They say it takes a minute to find a special person, an hour to appreciate them, a day to love them, but then an entire life to forget them.
Take the time to live!!!
Keep in touch with your friends, you never know when you'll need each other --
and don't forget to run in the rain!
Are you all smiling, now?!
Go and get out in the rain, now!
We here have to wait for Saturday...
Its been mostly quiet here, we got assaulted with some orange and black things, yesterday...meowmy said something about Fall holiday pics...always that camera. MEYOWL!

[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] Today meowmy thought I had taken a silly pill or something.
All day I was in the zoomies mode, and making so much catverstion about everything!
And of course there were hisses and cat slaps at the dog-guy...and I picked a fight or 2 with Minko...usually he picks on me!
We spent some together time chasing eachother up and down the stairs and all around the whole part of the house we are allowed to roam in.
That was when IT happened!
Meowmy heard the tinkling of something breaking...and she looked to find her desert dish...in bits and pieces...Sorry,meowmy. Maybe you should not have put it on top of that pile of books on the desk...I had to try and clear it when Minko was going to be catching me!
Must be that I have lots of energy from the nice cool weather! And no camera to bug me!
Though when I started to roll on the floor, like a ball while I had a game of 'chase my tail' meowmy thought about it...but she knew that I would just quit as soon as I knew she had it! So she enjoyed the show in private...
Then after all this amusing of meowmy...what does she do to reward me? She nabs me in the bathroom when I came to see if all was OK with her...and brushes my teeth! So I just stalked off after she was done, and that was the end of my zoomies day!
And meowmy had to clean up the broken bits of glass out of the carpet...before our next jaunt through the premises...she was worried that one of us would get a shard of glass in our tender paws...ouch!
Never know what the days will bring when there are kitties in your life!

[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] Today I was chowing down on the tissue box, the water bottle shrink wrap, the paper I found on the desk...and my foods, too of course!
Why I need to try to chew up the other stuff is beyond me!
But I do it a lot, and meowmy thinks I just enjoy the sounds and textures...MOL!
Well then I was just waiting for the game of laser tag...and I puked. Even pawppy who doesn't hear things when we think he should...came to see who was retching and gagging!
'Just me pawppy, I want to decorate this part of the carpet!'
And so I did. YUCK! But there weren't any alien things in there...so must have been some hairball that didn't like the confines of my belly! MOL! Didn't do any more...hee-hee. I sure know how to get the attentions, one way or another!

[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ] I just despise those occasions when Meowmy gets out that evil camera. And yesterday she did it again. She was going to try to make a pirate pic of me...Hah! She thought!
I went all limp...and then when she tried to put an eye patch on my face, I was not going to allow that,PERIOD!She actually agreed with me for a change. Wow! I must try to remember what I did to convince her to not make me a pirate...AARGH!
But then she got out some stuff to make Oct 31 pics...Oh Brother, Meowmy, do you never quit!?
Well at least with that stuff she didn't try to cover my eyes...I did cooperate a little bit...I think...MOL!
When October starts, I shall let you see some of what happened in that photo session.
Now meowmy needs to go to bed before she thinks of some other awful things to do with me... I shall stop my dict-CAT-ting, so she can study the back of her eyeballs instead! MOL!

now I will have lots of 'scuses to beg Meowmy fur treats, games and aah, belly rubs! Starting NOW!!
Maybe she will find me some new toys?? But I do know that if I don't let her go to bed, then she won't be good to help me with anything...MOL!

[ Leave A Comment | 11 people already have ] I have been so busy beating up the dog-guy this past few days...he is just such a silly dude...always getting too frisky with poor little Minko.
So I have to let him know that I will not tolerate that...esp when I hear Minko protesting. OMC, Meowmy! Why don't you keep that crazy pooch out of the house? Oh, You say he lives here, too? Well, only on my terms, OK?
Maybe meowmy lets me do these dog-guy chasing exercises, because they are good exercise...she thinks I am looking a bit portly, lately...and I know she doesn't want me to get sick from obesity like Toki did. He got to be 21 lb's. WOW!
I was busy with events on Catster this weekend, too.
First, Minko and I paid Hazel Lucy and Buddie a visit fur their 5th annipurrsary. That was fun!
Then we went to the beach and there we were witnesses to Mittens and Tessa's wedding. How they were a pretty couple! We never went to a wedding before!
Meowmy is furry itchy on her arms and on her belly, too. She thinks she touched a bad plant when she was clearing weeds in our back woods area. She didn't think that there was poison ivy there, because after 23 years she never had a trouble like that before! The rash looks like red blisters. Well, she may need to go to a doc, to see if she needs some people medicine to make it go away...
But she says she has no time fur that...she has to make things ready for my unfurbros...who may come home from college this w/e..and if not, then she will be going there because the older one has his birthday!
When is she ever going to get the pics changed on my page! It is time for a new season and the camping things are NOT part of the fall stuff!! MOL!
Well, I need to go and chow down, before the long nightly nap! (Is that why I am getting portly? I eat before bedtime...)

[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] OMC! first thing this morning meowmy sees that I am a DDP. OOH la-la!
So she picked me up top show me the screen...and I thought she was going to do something awful like brush my teeths or something...so I made a peep-mew and let loose on her sleeve! PEE-UUUU! It was some stuff not really poops for Newman, and Not pees for the I P journalists, but stinky nevertheless...MOL!
Anyways, I want to thank the many peeps and kitties who sent me messages, gifts and so on. I tried to get my typist slave...aka meowmy ...to send out thank yous and she hopes that all have been attended to.
What a busy day!
And meowmy had to be out of the house to do her regular Monday stuff...so when she got home to make supper there were about 75 messages in her inbox. And after all was cleaned up and she could finally get to this web of entanglements and internesting stuff, there were way over 100! PHEW!
Thanks for all the comments!
I did get to do some more doggy boxing...of his ears, that is...MOL!
And the sun was out a lot.
I had a good day.
Meowmy is still itchy as ever...so she may need to admit defeat to the poison ivy or whatevfur it is and go to the unfurvet-peep dudes.
Love you all! ♥
October 2nd 2010 8:02 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Well, Meowmy really got camera nuts issues! She didn't only put stuff around my neck and on my head, but she put me inside of a pumpkin! I thought pumpkins that were big enough to hold things became coaches fur peeps like Cinderella to ride in.
This one was soft and squishy...like a yucky old and rotten pumpkin...OK, Meowmy, I was just trying to make you change your mind...It isn't stinky and rotten, but it is soft and squishy! Well, She closed up the fasteners on the pumpkin, and I was trapped in a big orange sack! But I do admit it WAS warm and soft and cozy...and nothing had to go on my head...except when meowmy invented her own head gear that she insisted I wear...always she has to spoil things fur me...
Then she tried to get a witch cap on my head...no way meowmy, that is for females...NOT ME! So she tried to make me into a bowl of Halloween treats. There was all this orange strandy stuff in there, and I really didn't want to be anyone's treats...I am my pawrent's treat, and I don't have to be in a bowl fur that!! MOL!
Then she tried to decorate me with a feather boa...not the worst thing I have evfur endured...but don't tell her that!
I think she may try to get me stuck in some horn of plenty for the November spawsial day! Or turn me into a gobbler! Help!
I'm out of here...bye!
Today was my angel furbling Suki's meowday.
Meowmy wasn't quite sure when the exact day was, so my older unfurbro said why not give her the same birthday as me...so that is how they came to share a spawsial day together.
She would have been 14 this year.
When she was well, she was the princess of our den and she always managed to find the spot to sit to be on display! She had Cattitude!
When we came into her life as little kittens...OMC! She was not impressed! WE got lots of cat slaps from her. Maybe that is why I am so good with that to the dog-guy! She also beat him up on a few occasions when she got very brave!
Meowmy still has all the red spots from the probable poison ivy, but the itching is very little and no new places have come up. She has been putting zinc oxide powder on it, and alternates Lanacaine with Itchex. Seems to help. Coal tar shampoo also helped at the onset.
Purrs to all!
October 5th 2010 8:39 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Today Meowmy almost fell off her chair with a giggle fit!
I had dog-guy cornered, and was blocking his path. Well he got brave and sauntered past...and I swatted his snoot! Gotta keep him knowing who is the boss around here, you know. That is my calling and job...
Well, he didn't run away...but he slowed down to see what meowmy was doing...so I came up behind him...and had me a long sniff...of his behinder parts!
Duh! Smells like DOG! I recoiled from his rear end in disgust! I don't think dog-guy's practice the same hygiene as we kitties do...MOL!
This is my query: Should kitties teach their canine furblings how to wash themselves like we do?
With that I will leave my pawnderings for you all to mews over fur a while...
October 7th 2010 10:52 am
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Meowmy composed a little ditty, about Fall, she posted it on my brofur's page, (Minko).
Fall is a season of changes, but yet there is much beauty to be admired in the handiwork of the Great Painter.
Words cannot do it justice, but sometimes a little inspiration goes a long way...when the snow flies we will be able to think back on these pretty days that we were allowed to enjoy...and its always good to know that soon the spring will return with all its changes!
Purrs to all, Have a pawsome day!

[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] Wow!
My kitty brofur, Minko is a DDP again!
Meowmy hasn't even properly thanked the first lot of furs from last week's one!
Meowmy is going to be busy...I can accurately prophesy that!
Does that mean I have to be extra nice to Minko??
I was yesterday...
Dog-guy was getting too forward with Minko and I heard him complaining...telling dog-guy to pawlease leave him alone...so I just jumped on top of those two, so that I could scare dog-guy away!
What a hissy fit was had by all 3 of us after that! Dog-guy was on the floor, grumping at us, and we were there all a fluff! But where was the camera? Hah! Lost your chance , meowmy!
Today is also a holiday...not just Columbus Day...
But Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!
Happy Canadian Thanksgiving
So I want to wish you all the best, count your many blessings and enjoy the day! Espawsially, if you are Canadian!
Purrs, Hugs, Headbonks, and Miaows!
October 16th 2010 6:45 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 11 people already have ] When I walk on the part of the floor that has no carpet, I tend to tred very heavily. There is no sneaking up on anyone in the kitchen or bathroom!
Meowmy just can't figure out why I am not dainty or sneaky on my feet. I just like to slap my paw pads down...and so when she is in that part of the house, and I come over, I always announce my self with this plodding, followed by a very strange mew. It sounds like a question...Mriewrow? Or perhaps Merowpp?! If I am sitting somewhere and want this attention, I will mew the same sounds, but nod my head up and down at the same time...I think I should have been a linguist or at least a communicator for kitties!
Being Siamese, I guess I have quite a vocabulary, though I do know that a lot of other kitties also talk 'Cat' with their peeps.
Meowmy took some pics, yesterday...and when she put them on the screen to view them...It looks like I had been sticking my snoot into a place that must have full of dust bunnies! MOL! And she was already annoyed with the pics that she saw of Minko...I guess that meowmy will observe us more carefully in the future...
I may lose the large crop of birds and squirrels that are here so much. The screen of brush and small trees in front of our home is under the power wires and the power company says that most of them have to go...aka be chopped down! ACK!
WE can't do anything about it...they are on the other side of the street, and not on our property, but they did make a nice screen and hedge fur birds and little critters to find food and shelter in. This is so sad...
Meowmy will be pulling back from Catster/Dogster starting the middle of next week. She has what she terms 'very-gross-veins', and needs some laser treatments...which means she will be off her feet for a few days. And the 'puter is on a desk...not available to those who have to be flat!
She surely will be having withdrawal symptoms! But hey, we will be there to warm her up, as she lies on the cot in the livingroom with her legs on pillows...and we will stay on her and make sure that she obeys orders!
Then in a few days after that, meowmy will be out of town for a few days. Computerless again! OMC! There will be SO much CATching up to do!
We are having fun with pawing all the vote buttons for the WCC! There are some truly great pics there!
October 26th 2010 9:35 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] OMC! Meowmy has been too busy with catching up...first she was just busy...then she had to lie down after those laser treatments(All went fine, & she is OK), then Pawppy made her stay with the borrowed laptop, because he wanted to fix something on his desk top...so he wanted to use a part from mine till a new part arrived...That just slowed her right down to a crawl! She could keep in touch, but not do a whole lot else.
Then, on Oct 24, KCK made me their honorary Cat Of The week for their group!
Hey, that was kind of them. I have been playing their game where you have to try and guess words. I got several, but the competition is stiff!
They even made me my own 'thread'! OMC! Thanks all you dudes that do the work there.
Big Harry made me a picture, which you can see on my main page. At least I think he did, cause he told me about it! MOL!
A few days ago, meowmy went fur a walk and she saw several beautiful white tundra swans...or some peeps call them Whistling swans. It was early morning and the sun captured their beauty so well. They were like gleaming silver gliders, as they didn't flap their wings very hard, and they make this very odd call to each other. Not at all like geese or cranes.
It made her day.
She was cleaning out the last of the garden area and came across a hardy Black-eyed-Susan.
Very nice to see it still in bloom, even after a couple of hard frosts that we have had.
That is sort of how it looked.
And even after all the wild weather of today, it it still there. I think it must be a signal...
Today, after supper, and my dose of laser light games, I jumped into a little space in the bookshelf. I can't sit up all the way in there, much less stretch out, but when meowmy spoke to me I tried to nod my head at her, and miaowed back to her. Then when I saw pawppy, I tried to roll over on to my back...for a belly rub, of course...but there was not enough space fur that maneuver in there...MOL!
So I jumped out and followed him to his office room...where I could get comfy on the recliner and get my belly rub there! Score!
Well, meowmy needs to try and write another entry...so I shall say good night, and its great to be back!
Happy Howloween if I don't write sooner!
October 28th 2010 10:44 am
[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ] Well we still had very high winds and wild weather yesterday, but no tornadoes. The sun was out making warm sun-puddles for our benefit...which is more than we can say about today. It is dank, damp and blustery as well as chilly! So our nests look more inviting and cozy than evfur!
There is a first time for everything:
Today at our neighborhood it is garbage collection day. That means that the litter boxes get cleaned out quite a bit earlier than usual...and today was no exception!
Well, we have covered boxes. Never have we used other than those...since meowmy's first kitty used to scratch litter all over the floor, and even get his pee on the floor when he got so old, he couldn't 'squat' properly...poor dude.
So there are covers and even a swinging door...and us guys even hit the door with our piddlings at times...so meowmy is glad that she uses these boxes, and we don't seem to mind them either. They are turned away from the traffic that may be nearby, particularly the dog-guy, who likes to try and stick his head in them to 'forage'! EEUW! YUCK!
Well, today meowmy got out the litter spoon, and her bag...and lifted off the lid...and lo and behold there was I...looking a bit embarrassed to be caught in 'the act' and I wasn't even being naughty!
Meowmy, will you pawlease check with your eyes & ears to make sure you do not interrupt me or Minko when we have to do 'privacy pawlease'! Afterall, you don't barge into the human bathroom when someone is in there, why would you do that to us?
Well, I just stalked off, tail straight up, as if nothing was amiss! Humph!
Meowmy was giggling, but I really do not know what was so funny...hiss!
She told pawppy, too. Good grief!

[ Leave A Comment | 18 people already have ] If you pals of ours don't hear from us in the next few days, that will be cause meowmy is leaving town for a few days. To visit family in Canada.
We will be taken care of by pawppy, who is staying here.
Hope that we don't miss anything important!
But we will try to catch up when she gets back!
November 8th 2010 9:13 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Yippee!
Meowmy came home!
I missed her so much...cause pawppy just doesn't play laser like she does! MOL!
So many gifts, prezzies, and messages and comments! OMC! You pals of mine are so great and loving!
It figures so that while my typist/catretary is out of town...then I got to be DDP, and what is more, it happened 2 times! So I made sure to scold her when she came in the back door...'Meowmy, where were you when I was furmouse? I needed you and wanted you...but there was just Minko here until pawppy came home and he doesn't do Catster...'
Well, according to meowmy she will try to answer all the messages, send thanks for all the gifts, and so on. But fur now...this general acknowledgment will have to fill in the gap! Thanks to all of you, our furpals! We really appawsiated your love!

Pawppy had a day off from work today. His office is always closed for Veteran's Day...or as meowmy knows it; Remembrance Day.
Thank You veterans and all who sacrificed their lives for our freedoms. Your gift to us is furry precious.
May we never furget what you did fur us and why.
As I was mewing, pawppy was home. So as soon as he got up, this morning, I glued myself to his side. When he went from room to room, I just ran along with him, tail straight up in the air, and voicing my opinions all the while...miaow, mew, mrouw, purr, mew, MIAOW!
When he sat in his great big comfy recliner, I helped him fill it up even more, and I was like a soft blanket for keeping him warm...not that I needed to, since it was 69degrees outside. A tie for a record high!
When he ate breakfast, I jumped up on the table to give my opinions on his menu, when I got placed back on the floor, I just jumped right back up! Hee-hee! I just LOVE pawppy so furry much. When he is at the table it is so easy to get right close to his face and give it headbonks!
When he was at his desk, I tried to help him with his computer stuff.Hey! If you have a big 'puter like that, why don't you help meowmy with Catster? Or Dogster...Oh, sorry meowmy, he doesn't have enough time for that...he goes to the office evfurry day...mostly!
Then he left me.. :( ..and went outside to mow the lawn! In November! That job takes 3 or 4 hours, almost as bad as when he goes to work! Hiss!
So while he was out there, at least I had meowmy to pester! And to give my attentions to. Or so I thought!
She got out her camera and props and made me endure a photo shoot session! HISS! And Minko even had the nerve to come and see what we were doing and to giggle at me...cause he knew it was not his turn, having had that done to him yesterday...but meowmy fooled him and got some more pics of him, too!
Well after that I got to lie in a big sun puddle, till I heard this buzzing...A fly!
Minko and I chased that fly...then Minko knocked it down...but I managed to catch it in my mouth. But when it started buzzing in there, I spat it right out again...so now it is still pestering us around the lamp...if I pay it close attention, I should be able to snag it...bye! Off to go fly catching.
(PS: When pawppy came inside again, I gave up on the fly and started following him around again, Boy, I hate it when he shuts me out of the bathroom! MOL! At supper, I helped him by massaging his back...which I can easily reach from the cat condo...I got to sit in his lap for a while this evening...purring away!)
And for the record...This IS Pipo's Diary!

[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] Meowmy found this in The Toronto Star Newspaper, this morning. It is interesting to read. If you go to their website it will be in the science section for a few days, at least. There are videos there.
The science behind how cats lap
Published On Thu Nov 11 2010, in How Cats Lap
If this link doesn't work, just go to: thestar.com and then go to the science page by scrolling down.
HOW CATS LAP
New research suggests that cats rely on a complex set of physical principles relating to adhesion, inertia and gravity when they drink.
Whether you’re a dog person or cat person, you’ve got to admit felines are the daintier drinkers.
Now, a group of four researchers, employing high-speed video cameras, have published the scientific reasons why in one of the world’s most prestigious journals.
It turns out the more slovenly dogs just use cruder physics than their cat counterparts when they take in liquids.
For dogs, drinking simply involves forming their tongues into ladles and scooping the water into their mouths, and often all over the floor, says Jeff Aristoff, a post-doctoral fluids expert at Princeton University.
Cats, whether lap or lions, rely on a much more complex set of physical principles relating to adhesion, inertia and gravity.
“For cats you have to imagine dipping your finger into a liquid and pulling it out,” says Aristoff, a study co-author. “The liquid would adhere to your finger and then when you pull it up, you’re basically pulling up the water that’s touching your finger and also some water beneath it.”
For cats, it’s the bottom of their tongues, curled up into a J-like configuration that makes contact with the liquid. As the tongue retreats, it pulls up a column of water or milk behind it that will linger in the air via inertia before gravity pulls it back to the bowl.
“So the cat basically has an idea of how this evolves in terms of the hydrodynamics,” Aristoff says. “And it’s able to close its mouth around this column before it breaks.”
Cats have also evolved a tongue speed that will maximize the size of that snatchable column in relation to their mouth size, Aristoff says.
“The cats have timed it . . . so they can drink the most liquid per lap,” Aristoff says.
Tongue-darting speeds for house cats reach about two miles an hour, he says, “which doesn’t sound like a lot, but it is if you consider how small the tongue is.”
The study was released Thursday by the journal Science.
Aristoff says the cats curl their tongues in order to maximize the surface area making contact with the liquid they’re drinking.
“It presents a flatter surface to the liquid as opposed to just the tip of its tongue,” Aristoff says. “If you imagine you dipped a needle into the liquid and pulled that up you’re not going to get a whole lot of water as opposed to something that has a little bit more surface.”
One evolutionary explanation for this daintier delivery system is that it likely splashes less liquid on their whiskers, which are important sensory tools in all cats.
“If they were to drink like a dog then their whiskers would get really wet and that would disturb their ability to function,” Aristoff says.
Why did the researchers delve into this drinking style question in the first place?
Well, says study co-author Roman Stocker, it was simply curiosity about the cat.
“To be honest, the motivation for this one was really sheer curiosity,” says Stocker, a Massachusetts Institute of Technology civil and environmental engineer.
“It was a desire to know how a natural phenomenon that was around us that we encounter in our daily lives works.”
The fact that cats used the bottom of their tongues to drink had been pointed out by scientists in the 1940s. But then they used still-shot technology to show this, Stocker says.
It took today’s high-speed video technology to discover the full, hydrodynamic nature of the drinking. Because it is hard to get a high-speed camera close to a lion while it is lapping, the researchers used a robotic tongue to look at optimal drinking frequencies in the bigger cats.
This still does not explain why I like to dip my paw in the bowl! MOL! I very rarely drink by lapping from the bowl!

[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ] If kitties can sing, and I think we can...I would be singing this to meowmy:
Happy Birthday to you!
Yup! It is meowmy's birthday! And Grammy's too, but she lives in heaven now...
I helped by planting myself on the table and giving headbonks, and purrs!
Actually, I was hoping that she would let me have some of the cream topping on her cake...Mmmm!
Well, soon my pawrents will be going out fur a while, so this is all I shall mew about, now.
Have a great birthday, Meowmy!
November 16th 2010 1:14 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ] Sometimes we kitties can do some really interesting things...
I like to do art.
Messing up the toy box, digging in the litter box, and rearranging the nesting areas are a few of them.
Sometimes the pawrents leave the napkins on the table after they have been used...
Then when they are doing other things, it is my turn...If I am really lucky, there will be crumbs or spills that they forgot to mop up. Then it is my job to do clean up patrol!
Meowmy has seen me licking the tablecloth! She was sitting at the 'puter, and she heard this scraping sound...it was me...licking away!
But when she went back to the dining room later, she found something which made her laugh out loud!
I took a yummy tasting paper napkin and chewed a hole right through it! Well, meowmy, you left food smidgens on it, so I cleaned it up. And now you don't have to worry about wasting it either, it went to feed a hungery scavenger! MOL!
I am always so hungry! Even though meowmy makes sure that my bowl stays filled...I do like a change of pace, now and then...fiber and gravy were fine this time. MOL! Thanks, meowmy!
November 18th 2010 2:18 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] Oh, dear!
Meowmy looked at all the finalists in the WCC contest, but sadly we were not amongst them! But that's OK, cause we can try again, another year. With the same pics? Who knows! MOL!
But we did see a lot of furends among those that have 'made the cut'. Great pics, those! Meowmy will have a hard time choosing...
My dog-guy brofur did make it into the finals of the patriotic section. Maybe you kitties could ask your pawrents to go over there and cast a vote fur him. Pawlease?! It would be furry appawsiated!
There sure are a lot of fine dog pics, too, even if I mew that myself! MOL!
Vote MrJackFreckles aka SirLickaLot for Best in Show!more: dogs
I guess I shall have to be nicer to dog-guy...he was a DDP, yesterday, too.
I did a lot of private zooming around today, racing up and down the length of the house, chasing an imaginary mouse or whatefur! Meowmy could not see me with anything in my mouth or claws...Then I went and tried to carch the cursor on the 'puter screen. Meowmy has never seen me dio that before!
First time fur evfurrything!
November 19th 2010 7:21 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Yummy smells are emanating from meowmy's work station...or rather her secondary work station, the primary one being here at the 'puter...or at least that's what I think...so she can play with me here on catster, etc...
Anyways, I heard her rattling pans, and stirring things in those pans. The fridge was opened and closed a lot, meowmy went to the second fridge to shop for things stored there, for occasions like this, and I watched her come upstairs from there with her arms full of pumpkin and other yummy things.
She told me she has a big bird down there, too!
What! Why can't she let that bird out up here so we can play with it...hee-hee.
But she said she would bring it up here in a few days, dress it up and then present it to the furmily on the day she says is called Thanksgiving.
Well if she is going to dress it up, then I better find a way to get down there to warn it...cause meowmy can get quite nuts and carried away when it comes to clothes on animals!
Anyways, meowmy was cooking up some gingery cranberry sauce, and cooking the pumpkin to be able to make a pie or two out of it.
I love pumpkin pie, cause the topping that goes on it, at Thanksgiving time is made from real whipped cream! Mmmm! The best!
So lets see...bird with clothes, pie with cream, and then ginger-cranberry sauce...wonder what else she will make to go with all of that.
And I wonder if anyone will leave a yummy napkin on the table for me to sample afterwards! MOL!!
Are you drooling yet?
November 24th 2010 10:18 am
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] I would like to wish all my many great furends a Happy Thanksgiving!
While this is a bit early, it seemed appropriate.
I have a nice furmily,a great set of Catster furends, and so much more to count as my blesings.
I just wanted to share that all with you a day early, cause I do know that tomorrow, we will be all gathered together as a furmily, and the puter wiull not be getting as much attention as on some other 'normal' days! MOL!
And I will be needing to lurk around the food preparation and serving places, in case I may score a YUM!
I hope that all of you out there in the big wide cyber world will be able to be thankful for all your blessings, too.
And Meowmy for sure will be having a great Thanksgiving. She saw the oncologist, yesterday, and he said that all was well! Hooray! What better way to start off the list of blessings that have been bestowed upon this particular furmily?! Praise God!
Enjoy the Festivities!
PS: Turkey and Pumpkin pie are Yummy! MOL!

[ Leave A Comment | 10 people already have ] Meowmy thinks that instead of Peepo-Beepo my nickname should be Peepo-Cheepo!
As in bird cheeps and chirps!
Lately I sit and stare at her, during mealtimes...and if she looks my way, I will give a short chirp and a nod of my head. If she says pardon, I will repeat that! What I am trying to tell her is...Please get out that fun laser light! MOL!
The other day I was also the resident Velcro kitty...to pawppy! He was trying to do an online exam for his continuing education credits for his job...but I decided he needed me to help...with pawing the answers fur him!
Of course he didn't think so...he thought I was being rather annoying! But I was not going to take no fur an answer! So I kept jumping on the armrest of the chair..the first step towards his lap...but he kept moving me back to the floor. Soon meowmy came by and picked me up, and took me to her desk area...and tried to keep me with her, by giving me cuddles on her lap. NOPE! I wanted PAWPPY!
So as soon as meowmy lifted her hand to type something I jumped down and made a beeline to pawppy! But alas, he was already standing up. So I just had to be satisfied with his presence...but no lap...So I followed him around all day like that...if he went from one end of the house to the other, so did I. All these movements are accompanied by chirps and trills, and my tail is straight up...I am so happy when my pawppy is in the house! Not only was I a Velcro kitty, but a shadow kitty, too! MOL!
Meowmy and pawppy were discussing that of all the 6 kitties in their lives I am the only one who is this much of a daddy's cat! Pawppy says, I have adopted him! MOL! I do love my pawppy!
Meowmy has been digging in the closets for boxes and stuff...So now I shall have to try and be a bit less noticeable, I think she is getting out Christmas things...and that can only mean that soon I will once again be subjected to a photo session...ACK!

So now I am a tad late-ish pawing my thoughts about it all! But, better late than nevfur! MOL!
Well, meowmy did go out, but pawppy was here all day. So while it was a cold, blustery and snowy day, at least I had a nice warm lap to snuggle on! And you all know how I love my pawppy!
Thanks to all the furs who sent me nice messages, and to those who sent prezzies as well!Wishbones from Edwina and her furmily, and another from Penelope.Serena sent me a wishbone, too.
All you kitties trying to tell me something?? MOL!
Milo sent me a beautiful rainbow, to brighten up this dull day, and Tate sent me a cupcake! Mmmm!
Marrakech, Samsara,Colette, and their furmily sent me a blue ribbon!
And also there were not a few Spot Bots!
I got a pretty picture from Tundra, Manytoes and their furmily:Congratulations!
I am blessed to have such good furry pals. Meowmy posted my Christmas picture...not sure if there will be more...I can be so 'co operative'...MOL!

[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Meowmy dug in her boxes and got out some of the Catmas decorations!
Think kitty amusements!
She put out the 2 small trees she has...never puts out the big ones anymore since the days of Simba, who would climb into them and nap within the branches and break the limbs...cause he was a large fellow!
But the trees will stay 'naked' fur a few days, so that we will get used to their presence, and hopefurly leave the decorations alone, once they get on those trees!
Then she strung a line of beaded garland over the room divider. OMC! Instant gym!
And even more fun when a silly fly decided to land on the stuff... have been trying all day to get at that garland, but its on the wrong side of the divider...meowmy is just a shade too clever fur me. I shall have to pawnder upon it while she is in her bed, tonight...
She took one of her tree skirts and tried to make a cape of it fur me...but that was not going to be such a good idea...I just cozied up in it and went to sleep...so that of course would not make a furry good picture!
Well, there is more cold weather and snow predicted by the weather dudes around here...so I shall try and stay nice and warm in one of my many kitty nests!

Please bear with me and meowmy as soon as we can we will come bsck to play!
Forgive us if we miss mportant things like DDP's or Birthdays, etc...
We feel strande!

[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] My pawppy is a whiz!
He fixed our troubles!
So now we are back and ready to play...but it is furry late, and meowmy wants to go to bed!
So one more day before we can really get back into playing!
I tried to read some things at the computer store, but it was furry awkward...so we shall just have tio sift through all the kitty news and mews later.
I think that Samsara was a DDP, today, so concats to her, and her furmily, too. I always think that when one kitty gets a DDP, the whole furmily feels blessed!
Purr more later!

[ Leave A Comment | 10 people already have ] Wow! It happened again...,but not to me... to Minko!
On the day that meowmy was out as usual...it figures!
When will this diary gal learn that meowmy gets busier than evfur so that we get less attention...when this DDP thing comes around!
But concats to my brofur anyways!
He needed one...I seemed to have been hogging most of them lately! MOL!
Meowmy made a bunch more pics, of me, but hardly any are good...cause I was not in cooperative mode!
She brought in a big bag, from her shopping trip...and she thinks that maybe she will be able to find a bit of time, to,morrow to write her Catmas cards that need to get in the mail, soon, cause they have to fly over the big pond! And some others have to fly to the great white north!
Then she will get out what is in the bag...she thinks that we might think that they are Catmas toys...since they are colored shiny and glittery balls to hang on our small table trees, to dress them up...unbreakable, so fur sure she may get provoked at our antics with them at least she knows we won't get hurt or break them...
Thanks so much to all the furs who have been sending me gifts and messages into my gift box page. I appawsiate all of them, not to forget to say that I also appawsiate all of you!

[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] OMC! Who would evfur have thought that 2 kitties, brofurs, would share DDP's here!
If the odds are worked out according to statistical means, it should happen extremely rarely!
So we are a rare breed! MOL! (NOT really!)
It sure is fun, though to be doubled up like this! Wow!
We got some extra treats, such as cheese, yogurt, and sour cream. Mmmm!
And lots of chin scritches, pets and playtime as well as lap time.
Meowmy was doing some catretarial work fur us, when she heard a strange sound behind her...like scratching...So she turned around to see Minko licking the table cloth...yet again! Busted!
She went back to work, and soon she heard the same thing again!
But this time it was I doing the licking! Hee-hee!
So, I too got shooed off of there! Shucks, It tasted good, whatevfur it was! MOL!
Meowmy got assistance from Minko when she was wrapping a parcel, but I came and sat on said parcel, after it was done to keep it warm until it can be mailed away!
Meowmy did not find her ornament hooks to attach all those baubles to our trees. So after supper, she drove out to the store to get some more hooks. Maybe tomorrow those trees will get their finery on!
It was very cold here last night, down to 6 degrees. But today, while the bone chilling weather continues, the sun peered through the clouds a few times, so we had some sunpuddles to bask in!
Meowmy said that she saw a lot of kitty tracks in the snow, when she went out with dog-guy this morning. Poor cats who have to be outdoors, much more we feel for them in this frigid weather. Hope they were just out on morning rounds, and not out there all night. We don't see any of them here, though.
Well, thats about all I have to purr and meow about this evening!

[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Well, I have had some interesting commentary from a noncatser kittymom.
She thought I looked all ready to go to work in my tie!
So what kind of work or business should I be doing?
I am in a basket,(So that meowmy could easily keep me in a picture taking place and pose), so maybe I am a grocer kitty, who takes things around the store in the basket. Hmmm.
I do know that one job I have here at my den is Minko protector and doggy basher! But would I really need a tie fur that kind of work? MOL!
Oh, I am a lap warmer kitty, esp of pawppy, cause that's whose lap I warm the most.
Maybe I should be having a kitty sized briefcase to go with the tie...then I could go with pawppy to his office and help him with his work there, That sounds the best to me, cause then I could still warm his lap, he could still give me belly rubs, and we would all be happy!
Ah, well, since it is stormy and snowing and blowing, I shall just have to go to my nest and mull over it there during the night.At least I know that what evefur my job may be, I get rewarded by love and attention and warm nests.
I hope all kitties may be so blessed, esp at this spawsial time of the year. No tie needed for that!

[ Leave A Comment | 6 people already have ] OMC! It is still so cold here...Christmas preps continue, though. If anyone who didn't get an e-card from us would still like to have one, just send one of us a p-mail.
You just need to watch your spam folder, if after you ask for one, you don't see it by the next day or two...some peeps seem to have very picky spam filters, as meowmy found out from some of her dogster furends.
We had to endure another picture session, yesterday. Meowmy saw that it was sunny, and she needed some birthday pics to put up, right after Christmas. She never misses a chance! MOL! At least there were no clothes to wear, only a collar of sorts! So you will just have to wait & see...
Meowmy has gotten very wrapped up when she takes dog-guy out fur a walk...and she is also wrapping up pawresents...so we have tried to be helpful...just imagine...MOL!
So here are some rhyming lines about this activity:
When mommy wraps,
presents and gifts
We try to help,
Giving the paper some slaps!
Mommy doesn't like that
She shoos us away
Hey! A cat will be a cat!
Its how we like to play!
We like the things that crunch,
Under our paws and feet,
So while we wait for our lunch,
We keep that paper pile very neat.
Its more fun than a lap,
Its a great place to nap,
We will watch mommy wrap...
And when she is done , we will clap!
Hope you all have a great evening and some fun times in the remaining days before Christmas.
Meowmy just remembered that she has had me here for over a year, now! Wow! That went by fast!
So much has happened, too. We love this pawlace!

[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] Here is something cute...and worthy of thought, maybe some of you may be familiar with this cute tale, but anyfur, meowmy thought it was good to give us all a giggle! We all need those to stay healthy!
What to give Mama??????
Four brothers left home for college, and they became successful doctors and lawyers, and prospered. Some years later, they chatted after having dinner together. They discussed the gifts they were able to give their elderly mother who lived far away in another city.
The first said, "I had a big house built for Mama."
The second said, "I had a hundred thousand dollar theater built in the house."
The third said, "I had my Mercedes dealer deliver an SL600 to her."
The fourth said, "You know how Mama loved reading the Bible and you know she can't read anymore because she can't see very well. I met this preacher who told me about a parrot that can recite the entire Bible. It took twenty preachers 12 years to teach him. I had to contribute $100,000 to the church, but it was worth it. Mama just has to name the chapter and verse and the parrot will recite it."
The other brothers were impressed.
After the holidays Mom sent out her Thank You notes.
"Milton, the house you built is so huge; I live in only one room, but I have to clean the whole house. Thanks anyway."
"Marvin, I am too old to travel. I stay home; I have my groceries delivered, so I never use the Mercedes. The thought was good. Thanks."
"Michael, you gave me an expensive theater with Dolby sound, it could hold 50 people, but all of my friends are dead; I've lost my hearing and I'm nearly blind. I'll never use it. Thank you for the gesture just the same."
"Dearest Bob, you were the only son to have the good sense to give a little thought to your gift. The chicken was delicious. Thank you. Love you, Mama."
I think I may have eaten the 'chicken', too! MOL!

[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] OMC! We won a giveaway, at the Cat's Meow.
We won the giveaway of the Kitty-Fun-Egg-cerziser toy, that you can fill with treats, so we have to play and move it around, and get rewarded fur our efforts with treats! Yum!
A great idea, and fun just before Catmas and our meowdays!
Actually we entered under 'We Bees Siamese', but since meowmy doesn't do a diary there fur us, this is where we will have to purr about it!
Speaking of winning, our furbro dog-guy did not win or win his section of the WCD contest, but we want to purr our congrats to all the kitties and pups who did!
We hope that meowmy does not go on a picture taking storm to gather material for the next WCC! MOL!
My unfurbros have just arrived home from college...and of all things, as soon as they arrived the smoke alarm started to bleep! That was weird! Meowmy was not cooking, we searched the house, but could not detect anything out of order...so pawppy thinks it was malfunctioning. Must have been excited about their arrival!
Have a nice weekend!

[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Hi Furs in Catsterland!
Many of us here know Angel Ava Corrine and her furmily.
That would be Minka, Purrsia, Andy, Arli and Avery, as well as their doggy brofur, Augie...all together with momcat Karen.
Their computer has crashed and they cannot do anything except very limited checking on things from her phone.
So frustrating at this time of the year...she can't make diary entries, comments or other stuff like that.
But she would like all of your furs out there know that she is thinking of you, and wants to convey her best wishes to you all for a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Someone is coming to see if they can help her computer get back up, but Karen thinks that it may need to get into a shop for repair. AARRGH! Poor Karen!
So, now even if you want to send her stuff, she may not be able to respond or even see it...she feels so bad, but We will be her spokeskitty during these special days.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Meowy Catmas and a Purry New Year to all of our Catster Furends!
Love, Angel Ava, Minka, Purssia, Arli, Andy and Avery.
Thanks fur bearing with this family and hope they get things fixed really soon!
Here is a link to Ava:

[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] OMC! It is finally here! The day we all waited for with such anticipation!
OMC! We have been busy!
Meowmy hasn't even had time to write anything for Minko & me lately, so much to do, it was all she could manage to say and scratch things in comments, etc. She even stayed up late to do catretarial things last night, playing a kind of Santa paws to send out giftees and cards in the virtual catsterland way.
Obviously others have been doing the same...my page is covered with them!
Thanks so much to all, and when things calm down...does that ever happen?...meowmy will take notes from me to send out thank yous!
She tried to make some pics of me and then both of us with our 'loot', but I wasn't having it at all...she had us on the dining room table in the midst of our stuff...but I thought she didn't want us to be there...so I just pretended to not be there...
Meowmy was nice and gave me my birthday stuff today, too...cause tomorrow will not be an ideal time for that kind of thing here...pawrents stuff, you know...
Maybe soon she will post my new Christmas pics as well as birthday pics!
6 years old!
Seems not so long ago that I was introduced to this home...I had to be in a big pen, at night anyways, until I was big enough and smart enough to fend myself from the ever nosey and pesty dog-guy!
I have given him a few swats today, just to keep things on the right level, here, between him and I!
We got our box from Skeezix, yesterday!
The eggzersizer was in it...But I have not shown a lot of interest in it! Go figure! Minko decided the box was the best part of the giveaway, and then he discovered that there was a bag of cat nip in there!
OMC! I had a good whiff of it too! Then I just walked away...
Thank you Skeezix! Meowy Catmas to you, too!
I had more fun with the dangler toy from our vet.
Isn't it great that our vet gives his clients gifts on their birthdays? He has what he calls the birthday club!
Well, got to go and have a nice nap...we had a tidbit of white turkey from the dinner that meowmy fixed. Mmmm!
You all have a nice Catmas!
December 26th 2010 11:36 am
[ Leave A Comment | 6 people already have ] OMC! I am 6 years old!
Hey, does that mean that I have to go to school, now?
I think Angel-Toki went to school a long time ago, when he was a kitten...and so did Angel-Suki!
But I don't think I want to go in the carrier for 90 miles one way to the school where my unfurbros go, now! MOL!
Well, today I got some more yummy white meat turkey, and I just know that today I will get a lick of that whipping cream, later when the rest of the desserts come out of their hiding places...
When meowmy was cleaning our boxes this morning, I got 'broomed' too! OMC! That feels so good. You furs out in Catsterland should try it!
I didn't get any more gifts to open, though, I had all of my pawresents yesterday in a 'combo pawrty'!
That is because on Sundays, my peeps are gone twice, for almost 3 hours each time...that way I had more things to amuse myself with today, to pass the time.
It is a dull day here, but thankfully we are not in the path of the latest winter storm that a lot of our furry furends are experiencing.
I hope they all are staying, warm cozy and safe.
At present I am taking a nap on top of pawppy who is also taking a nap! I am putting a lot of furs on his new 'Purdue' fleece throw...so we both are cozy. I never thought that I would be getting comfy on top of a train engine! MOL!

[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Hello, evfurry one in Catsterland!
It sure has been a busy week around our den!
Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, 2 meowdays, Gramma's birthday, New Year's Eve, and New Year's Day! Plus 2 Sundays, which are always busy at our den as well!
Phew, we will be ready for a long nap to recharge our batteries!
Then what will we do with all the quiet days! OMC! Do I need to ask that! Kitties always know what to do with time...you eat, sleep, chase mousies, and indulge in catnip...and you beg treats from your pawrents, and seek out their warm laps! Ahhh, the life of a spoiled kitty!
Well, now I have to go and find Minko to continue to help him have a nice meowday!
Yesterday meowmy took about a million and one pictures to try and get one or two nice ones for putting up for wishing all our furends a Happy New Year!
I hope that Catster will not be taking a flea bath when meowmy wants to post them...that was so frustrating yesterday when they were in the water...but it shows how much we like to be here that we get upset when we cant!
The Jack Frost painter was busy overnight, here...what a pretty sight when the sun came up! All the trees and bushes were wearing fuzzy white coats!
May you all have a safe and fun New Year's Eve, and a furry Happy New Year!

[ Leave A Comment | 6 people already have ] Well, 2011 has arrived for us here in the Eastern time zone!
Happy New Year evfurryone!
We got to have our whole furmily here to watch the big ball in NYC...and then after meowmy and pawppy had some big smooches, they all went to bed, except meowmy who decided to let me dictate my pawnderings to her to translate into peep-talk...
Did any furs feel yesterday's earthquake? I think that this was just an early catabration of a New Year's pawrty. Just like the big thunderstorms we had here today! Wow! What noise and what a natural fireworks display! Pawsome!
Sorry that there had to be so many tornadoes with this same system in other states, though.
What wild weather this country has been having lately!
OK, well sleep nice, have a great day tomorrow, and Happy New Year to all!
"Almost too long a wait fur that big ball to come down...Happy 2011!"
"Hope that your 2011 will be as bright as this star! Happy New Year!"

[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Meowmy has gone nuts!
She was gone all day, then she came home with just a couple of grocery bags to show for the time she was gone. Usually there are a lot more bags when she is gone that long!
I heard her talking to an unknown peep about Highschool..and how she would have to go digging for it! And then she was explaining about some other papers apparently buried somewhere upstairs in a deep dark closet!
That is odd, I thought things got buried outside in holes. Our dog-guy brofur is an expert at things like that. Hope that he didn't do something naughty!
Maybe she was gone so long because of the bad driving conditions...part of I94 were even closed today around here! She left during the brunt of that snowy mess! Lots of slide-off accidents...But, nope, she came home and all was well with her and the van...
When Pawppy came home, she showed him some important papers she had brought home...
Well, she had been spending time at the local community college. She is registered to take a class there, starting in April, because the ones she wanted to enroll for, were both filled up! She waited too long! When that class is done, she will be able to seek employment...and then OMC, she will be gone from home evfurry day!
So we will have to love on her as much as possible while we can!
She also put all the Christmas decorations away...aka our toys!
So now it looks furry bare and dull! I hope that in a few weeks she might get out some pretty red things...for heart season!
Well, it is bedtime for all of us here at our den, the morning activities require a good nights rest!
And there will be snow to clean up, too!
Sleep well, mu furends in Catsterland!
January 7th 2011 8:18 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] OMC! What a cloud of smoke was in my den!
We had to open all the windows and also use an exhaust fan to pull the fresh air in...cough-cough!
Meowmy turned on the vacuum and when she was going to use it, it started to belch out all this very smelly smoke...and dumped a load of soot on the carpet!
Well, that was the end of that cleaning expedition! And then there was another expedition to take the crippled and stinky monster to the shop!
Sure has been quiet around here! MOL!
That means that we will be able to put lots of our furs on stuff, and they won't get stolen away for a long time! Hee-hee!
The funny thing was...or more likely the providential thing was...the smoke alarm had just been dismantled for the new one to go up, but t wasn't installed just yet! Otherwise there would also have been a lot of noise to go along with the smoke!
January 9th 2011 8:57 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] I was standing by the back door, watching meowmy clean out the litter box...and I heard dog-guy come in the back porch...but he just blasted through the doggy door so fast that I was caught off guard...and there was an exchange of spits and hisses and fire from me to him..and even though he tried to chase me, I have better traction on the kitchen floor! Hee-hee!
That all happened so fast, meowmy is not quite sure if the dog-guy started to chase me before the spitting, or if I started that...but I shall keep it a secret...
January 11th 2011 5:20 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] Meowmy read this and thought it would be nice to share it with our furends. It does give us pause for thought...and then we can think about things in a different perspective...and perhaps give thanks for the things going on in our lives...because God uses them for His purposes...always!
YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN SOMETHING GOOD WILL COME.
The SPARROW at STARBUCKS - The song that silenced the cappuccino machine:
It was chilly in Manhattan but warm inside the Starbucks shop on 51st Street and Broadway, just a skip up from Times Square . Early November
weather in New York City holds only the slightest hint of the bitter chill of late December and January, but it's enough to send the masses crowding indoors to vie for available space and warmth.
For a musician, it's the most lucrative Starbucks location in the world, I'm told, and consequently, the tips can be substantial if you play
your tunes right. Apparently, we were striking all the right chords that night, because our basket was almost overflowing. It was a fun, low-pressure
gig - I was playing keyboard and singing backup for my friend who also added rhythm with an arsenal of percussion instruments. We mostly did pop songs from the '40s to the '90s with a few original tunes thrown in. During our emotional rendition of the classic, "If You Don't Know Me by Now," I noticed a lady sitting in one of the lounge chairs across from me. She was swaying to the beat and singing along.
After the tune was over, she approached me. "I apologize for singing along on that song. Did it bother you?" she asked. "No," I replied. "We
love it when the audience joins in. Would you like to sing up front on the next selection?"
To my delight, she accepted my invitation.. "You choose," I said. "What are you in the mood to sing?"
"Well. ... do you know any hymns?"
Hymns? This woman didn't know who she was dealing with. I cut my teeth on hymns. Before I was even born, I was going to church. I gave our guest singer a knowing look. "Name one."
"Oh, I don't know. There are so many good ones. You pick one."
"Okay," I replied. "How about 'His Eye is on the Sparrow' ?"
My new friend was silent, her eyes averted. Then she fixed her eyes on mine again and said, "Yeah. Let's do that one." She slowly nodded her head, put down her purse, straightened her jacket and faced the center of the shop. With my two-bar setup, she began to sing.
"Why should I be discouraged? Why should the shadows come?".......
The audience of coffee drinkers was transfixed. Even the gurgling noises of the cappuccino machine ceased as the employees stopped what they were doing to listen. The song rose to its conclusion.
" I sing because I'm happy; I sing because I'm free. For His eye is on the sparrow, And I know He watches me."
When the last note was sung, the applause crescendoed to a deafening roar that would have rivaled a sold-out crowd at Carnegie Hall.
Embarrassed, the woman tried to shout over the din, "Oh, y'all go back to your coffee! I didn't come in here to do a concert! I just came in here to get somethin' to drink, just like you!" But the ovation continued..
I embraced my new friend. "You, my dear, have made my whole year! That was beautiful!"
"Well, it's funny that you picked that particular hymn," she said.
"Why is that?"
"Well . .." she hesitated again, "that was my daughter's favorite song."
"Really!" I exclaimed.
"Yes," she said, and then grabbed my hands. By this time, the applause had subsided and it was business as usual.. "She was 16. She died of a brain tumor last week."
I said the first thing that found its way through my stunned silence. "Are you going to be okay?"
She smiled through tear-filled eyes and squeezed my hands. "I'm gonna be okay. I've just got to keep trusting the Lord and singing his songs, and everything's gonna be just fine." She picked up her bag, gave me her card, and then she was gone.
Was it just a coincidence that we happened to be singing in that particular coffee shop on that particular November night? Coincidence that this wonderful lady just happened to walk into that particular shop? Coincidence that of all the hymns to choose from, I just happened to pick the very hymn that was the favorite of her daughter, who had died just the week before? I refuse to believe it.
God has been arranging encounters in human history since the beginning of time, and it's no stretch for me to imagine that God could reach into a coffee shop in midtown Manhattan and turn an ordinary gig into a revival. It was a great reminder that if we keep trusting God and singing
the songs, everything's gonna be okay.
The next time you feel like GOD can't use YOU,just remember...
Noah was a drunk
Abraham was too old
Isaac was a daydreamer
Jacob was a liar
Leah was ugly
Joseph was abused
Moses had a stuttering problem
Gideon was afraid
Sampson had long hair and was a womanizer
Rahab was a prostitute
Jeremiah and Timothy were too young
David had an affair and was a murderer
Elijah was suicidal
Isaiah preached naked
Jonah ran from God
Naomi was a widow
Job went bankrupt
John the Baptist ate bugs
Peter denied Christ
The Disciples fell asleep while praying
Martha worried about everything
The Samaritan woman was divorced, more than once
Zaccheus was too small
Paul was too religious
Timothy had an ulcer...
AND Lazarus was dead!
No more excuses now!! God can use you to your full potential.

[ Leave A Comment | 13 people already have ] Meowmy was getting out the cleaning things...I was curious about the dust rag she wanted to use. So she opened it up and put it on my head...like a prayer shawl...MOL!
When it fell off, she picked it up and dangled it with the corner by my snoot...and I grabbed it, and ran off with it! I am a dust cloth thief! MOL!
Meowmy wishes that I could take that dust rag and put it to use!
Dream on, meowmy, dream on!

I won the week's game at Kewl Kats, and I got lots of playtime & treats!
And Pawppy was home and took a long nap, so I got to keep his legs warm!
What else would a kitty need!
Thanks for all the messages & gifts!
It was also fun sharing the spotfurlight with:Princess Aurora, Inky, Misty & Newman!
Concats to them, too!
Time for a long night-night now!

[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] My auntie sent meowmy this furry cute email about the tweeting and stuff that goes on...
A good laugh for people in the over 40 group. Also for those who know people with like similarities.
When I bought my Blackberry I thought about the 30-year business I ran with 1800 employees, all without a cell phone that plays music, takes videos, pictures and communicates with Facebook and Twitter. I signed up under duress for Twitter and Facebook, so my seven kids, their spouses, 13 grandkids and 2 great grand kids could communicate with me in the modern way. I figured I could handle something as simple as Twitter with only 140 characters of space.
That was before one of my grandkids hooked me up for Tweeter, Tweetree, Twhirl, Twitterfon, Tweetie and Twittererific Tweetdeck, Twitpix and something that sends every message to my cell phone and every other program within the texting world.
My phone was beeping every three minutes with the details of everything except the bowel movements of the entire next generation. I am not ready to live like this. I keep my cell phone in the garage in my golf bag.
The kids bought me a GPS for my last birthday because they say I get lost every now and then going over to the grocery store or library. I keep that in a box under my tool bench with the Blue tooth (it's red) phone I am supposed to use when I drive. I wore it once and was standing in line at Barnes and Noble talking to my wife and everyone in the nearest 50 yards was glaring at me. I had to take my hearing aid out to use it, and I got a little loud.
I mean the GPS looked pretty smart on my dash board, but the lady inside that gadget was the most annoying, rudest person I had run into in a long time. Every 10 minutes, she would sarcastically say, "Re-calc-u-lating." You would think that she could be nicer. It was like she could barely tolerate me. She would let go with a deep sigh and then tell me to make a U-turn at the next light. Then if I made a right turn instead. Well, it was not a good relationship.
When I get really lost now, I call my wife and tell her the name of the cross streets and while she is starting to develop the same tone as Gypsy, the GPS lady, at least she loves me.
To be perfectly frank, I am still trying to learn how to use the cordless phones in our house. We have had them for 4 years, but I still haven't figured out how I can lose three phones all at once and have run around digging under chair cushions and checking bathrooms and the dirty laundry baskets when the phone rings.
The world is just getting too complex for me.. They even mess me up every time I go to the grocery store. You would think they could settle on something themselves but this sudden "Paper or Plastic?" every time I check out just knocks me for a loop. I bought some of those cloth reusable bags to avoid looking confused, but I never remember to take them in with me.
Now I toss it back to them. When they ask me, "Paper or Plastic?" I just say, "Doesn't matter to me. I am bi-sacksual." Then it's their turn to stare at me with a blank look. I was recently asked if I tweet. I answered, No, but I do toot a lot." P.S. I know some of you are not over 50. I sent it to you in order to allow you to at least forward it to those who are .. .. over fifty.
Now that is something that meowmy could well relate to! MOL!! Even if she still has no grandchildren, etc...and does not play golf...but she certainly doesn't not know anything about tweeting...isn't that what birdies do? and twittering...that's what a bunch of women can be heard doing in some of their gatherings!
Don't get meowmy started on the other stuff!
Hope you all have a good bunch of giggles! Its good for the well-being of our bodies! Have a good night, too!
January 25th 2011 7:26 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] There is a lot of sadness and stress in our world, these days, even in our own lives. Here is a piece culled from meowmy's email. Hope you enjoy it and perhaps take to looking up, too!
If you put a buzzard in a pen that is 6 feet by 8
feet and is entirely open at the top, the bird, in spite of its ability to fly, will
be an absolute prisoner. The reason is That a buzzard always begins a flight from the ground with a run of 10 to 12 feet. Without space to run, as is its habit, it will not even attempt to fly, but will remain a prisoner for life in a small jail with no top.
The ordinary bat that flies around at night, a remarkable nimble creature in the air,
cannot take off from a level place. If it is placed on the floor or flat ground, all it can do is shuffle about helplessly and, no doubt, painfully, until it reaches some slight elevation from which it can throw itself into the air. Then, at once, it takes off like a flash.
A bumblebee, if dropped into an open tumbler, will be there until it dies, unless it is taken out. It never sees the means of escape at the top, but persists in trying to find some way out through the sides near the bottom.. It will seek a way where none exists, until it completely destroys itself...
In many ways, we are like the buzzard, the bat, and the bumblebee. We struggle about with all our problems and frustrations, never realizing that all we have to do is look up! That's the answer, the escape route and the solution to any problem!
Just look up.
Sorrow looks back,
Worry looks around,
But faith looks up!
speak kindly and
trust in our Creator who loves us.
Hope that you feel compelled to be looking up more, now!

Meowmy said I had a message from Karma Kitty, in my catmailbox.
She said that I had been tagged.
OK, so now I shall have to get my catretary to play this game with me and all of my catster furends.
I've been tagged in a new game! List 5 of the most annoying things your humans can do, then tag 5 friends to do the same and put it in their diaries.
These are not in any particular order of complaint level...
1) Not keeping my bowl filled up with yummy food. Thoughtless!
2) Brushing my teeth! Hateful!
3) Keeping the dog-guy in my den. How could she?
4) Not playing with me enough. I demand to be played with all the time.
5) Taking the water fountain away from me. It was so much fun to paddle with my paws in the running water...now I have to use a bowl like the other furs around here! (But I still mess with my paws in it! Hee-hee!)
Now who shall I tag?
You can also play if you read this diary!The funnest part is getting to choose 5 more kitties to tag!

[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] It is just striking midnight, and I am near meowmy...then The Cuckoo clock makes itself known to me...and I run like a mad cat to get there before that darn bird goes back in his house...I jumped high onto the top of the organ, (The clock hangs on the wall, just above the organ case), and just as I got to the edge, it was done...OMC that bird is too quick!
I shall have to make my nest under it to entice it...but the 12 o'clock chirps are the longest...so I shall have to be on the alert for the little click I hear, just before the bird shows himself...
January 31st 2011 7:46 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] Well, I nevfur did catch that cuckoo birdie...shucks!
Meowmy tried a new thing...she heard/read about so many kitties that like to play with Q-tips...so she got one out of her drawer. She twitched it before my face to get my attention. I craned my neck to get a better view of it, but then I decided that I am not a Q-tip kitty! MOL!
Then meowmy had another idea!
She dipped the Q-tip in some catnip and passed it under my nose! That got my attention!
So then I picked it up and dropped it on the floor a few feet further, and plopped myself on it. And that was that, because Minko came and grabbed it! But I had had my 'nip fix'!
I just went to my nest and had a cat nap.

I got a smoochie rosette on my page, yesterday, and it came from Samoa...She has picked me as one of this year's dreamboats!
I was totally floored with surprise...imagine me being floored! MOL!
I am honored and flattered so much by this accolade!
Thanks Samoa! Smoochies back at you! MOL!
Does this mean that now all the ladycats here on Catster will be swooning around me evfurry time I purr about anything, or post any pics? Hmmm...I shall have to be really suave for them then!
This dreamboat came over to me on the trail of a big storm...or it seems that way...trying to get here from over where the beautiful Samoa lives, the Blizzard of 2011!
This monster storm traveled from the south covered her state and eventually made its way over here, and further, too!
What a mess!
Dog-guy could hardly find a place for his business ventures this morning!
We do hope that all our furends are warm and safe.
Pawppy could have gone back to work today, but the plow has not yet come through here. We have only seen a few brave vehicles and lots of snowmobiles. Too bad he didn't try to hitch a ride on one! MOL!
It is 8 miles to his office, along a wining highway in the country, the highway has the nickname of 'snake', so in these conditions it is unpleasant to say the least!
Purrs to all!
Oh, It is Groundhog Day...hope that dude is going to give us a favorable weather report!

[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Well kitties!
I have been tagged for a second time by Bow Tye Bush.
Still the game of listing the complaints...well I listed 5 before, but here are some more that I can grumble about!
1)Dad getting up when I was having the best nap evfur on his comfy lap.
2)Cloudy days, so that I have to do without a sun puddle.
3)Being tricked to coming to the place where meowmy brushes my teeth.
4)Having to put clothes on...my furs are clothes enough for me!
5)Picture taking sessions, formal or not...clothed or naked. I prefer to keep myself private...but I do know that if I had my way, Samoa would not have been able to choose me as one of her dreamboats...so I guess I will put up with it...occasionally!
I am not going to choose any more kitties to also play, because I did that the first time. But if you have not been tagged and you wish to play, just discuss 5 things that your human does that you find annoying, grumble about them for all of Catster to read about and grumble with you, and then find 5 more kitties to 'tag'!
February 11th 2011 7:02 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] Hi folks and kitties!
I haven't mewed much here lately...but now I have a few things to miaow about...
I have so much fun chasing the dog-guy! Not only do I swat at him if he passes me by, I have started to go to where he may be coming just for the sole purpose of giving him a smack or two! Meowmy says she can't believe that I am being so mean to dog-guy, and she also can't believe how fast my smacky-paw is! MOL!
If dog-guy goes and lies down to gaze with longing eyes towards the room where pawppy has his office, and which is off limits to him, I will go and run right up to him and make him go away!
This is so much fun and an seemingly endless source of sport and entertainment for me...not so much for dog-guy, though...MOL!
I also have been shadowing pawppy like a body guard...When he is at home, I dare not let him out of my sight! I have even tried to follow him up the stairs into the bedrooms which we are not allowed to be in! He obliges me by giving my belly the rubbings it so craves!
But then sometimes when he is working at home, he will not let me on his lap, so I can't be of any assistance. Well, the nerve. I am ready to be there to give my pawsome opinions at all times! So at those times I stalk out of there and go and see what meowmy might be needing any help with.
Lately I have been doing some singing to her and anyone else who might be interested...Mew, Miaow, Mrouw, Mreep, MIAOW! Meowmy doesn't know what the mewlodies are called...Then Meowmy looks at me and I will be dragging an old mouse toy carcass around. The old tattered ones are the best! If I drop it, I will pounce on it and perhaps jump up in the air to try and scare it into action, but it just never seems to want to do that!
So next I will get to chasing my tail. I stretch out, watch it twitch and then pounce on it, but it hardly evfur lets me snag it! Round and round I go, rolling like a ball! And off I run to hide when I hear the camera being turned on...this is private stuff, meowmy don't you understand that?!
Just between you cats and I; I have a Valentine...who asked me (yes SHE asked me) way before I was made a dreamboat. It is sort of a private and secret affair...no not an 'affair' like that... but we just like to be Valentines for eachother. Sweet huh?!
I shall have to dream up a nice song fur her fur the occasion, or at least send her a nice gift!
Meowmy says that in our den, dating, and stuff like that is not going to be happening, unless, as Samoa says, I have reached the wise age of discernment which is 21...
Whatevfur meowmy, I have a Valentine for this year, and that is all that matters now!
Here are my Valentine's Pictures for all of my kitty furends to enjoy!
Happy Valentine's Day!

[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] OMC! It is the day of love, hearts and Valentines. Meowmy had such a big heart, and there was plenty of love in there to share, so she got me, Pipo...a Valentine furefur!
I came from a home that had lots of other kitties, but my birth mom-cat and my furblings were well cared for. There were so many kitties there, its is a wonder that the peeps could take care of them all! When my now meowmy came in that home to get me, she did notice a distinct catty air about the place...
While my furbling was rescued out of a bad 'home' at the same time as me, we do not share birthdays! But we are a few days apart...so I guess our hearts are sort of twin like at least in the spirit of being Valentines!
I sang my mewlody last night for my spawsial Valentine...I hope she was listening!
Tonight I want to give spawsial thanks to all the many gifts, messages and other forms of Gotcha/Valentine love that has been sent my way.
I will try to thank you all, but it may take a day or two...meowmy is swamped with non cat stuff, and if that wasn't enough, now she found out that she needs to replace a panel on the bottom of her van, it got ripped off in a pothole! Oh, the joys and woes of winter and February thaws!
Hope you all will have a wonderfur Valentine evening, perhaps with your most 'spawsial one'!

Meowmy made a quick look to see who was furmouse today, and there I was, holding up the DDP ladder...
Meowmy has to be gone most of the day...so I will have to wait for later to make more use of her catretarial services...
Meanwhile I have been at the cuckoo clock, stopped its pendulum, and had a run in with the dog-guy. Wonder what I will be doing while meowmy goes away...
Purrs and more mews later.

[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] Well, here I am again as promised...after meowmy rushed around she finally left Minko and I to keep watch over things, including dog-guy... And then when she finally came home and sat down, I got to purr at her and beg for attention, later to be repeated with pawppy...
Pipo 'Eating' a bag...
I chewed up a plastic bag. I love to do this, much to meowmy's consternation! MOL!
Here is what the bag handles looked like...
Chewed up bag handles...
Would you like to try and pick up the bag and hope it will still hold the contents?!
I beat up the dog several more times.
I begged pawppy for belly rubs, and of course I got them, too!
I got a big dollop of yogurt, which is one of my favorite things.
The sun was out most of the day, so that was a bonus to my already furtastic day!
And there are bugs to watch in between the window panes, and there even is a fly that was dumb enough to come into our den! Goodness knows what meowmy will find in the morning, after Minko & I try to get it! MOL!
Well, soon meowmy will have to get to my catretarial work of thanking all those who sent stuff...
And she has other things to get done, too, as she was gone fur hours!
One thing why she was gone was to get her van fixed...a brake recall job, and a temporary fix of the underpanel which somehow got ripped off during the recent bout of large snow ruts, etc. So glad that soon the real spring will be here...
Meowmy! That means you need to get to work and change the pics on our pages...you know: Mardi Gras and St Patrick's Day.
Thanks again to all who sent prezzies and messages and comments!
Purrs and hugs to all!

Meowmy! You need to get with it!
You still have all those red pictures up, but while they are nice and cute and stuff, it is time to green up my page, and Minko's too!
Maybe if you 'put up the green', then that will encourage the spring weather to come across this wintry landscape! OMC! We had some lovely warmish days, the sun was bright, and the grass was clear of snow! Now it is all encased in snow and ice! UGH!
Here are my St Patricks Day pics and my Mardigras pics, too...
Pipo-cat is bored...
I am angry at that leprechaun who made me wear this green stuff.....
Did I have too much green beer, or is there a bee in my bonnet?....

If the spring weather would come back, maybe we wouldn't hear all the grumblings about being stiff and sore, and, oh my aching back, etc...the peeps have spent hours outside trying to clean up some of the thick ice we have right now.
But I think I have heard those things from them after they spend a lot of time doing yard work...well, That means the saying is true...that the human breed is just nevfur happy unless they have something to grumble about! MOL!
OK then, I am going to grumble again: Meowmy You are slow in getting the green up on our pages!
And now that I have said my stuff, I will go have a midnight snack, and go to my nest..
March 2nd 2011 10:08 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ] I often like to chase my tail...that is not something too unusual.
But lately I have been doing this sill activity on top of the organ. Meowmy saw me pawing away in the space between the top of the organ case and the wall.
She noticed that there was no toy in there, but that I was trying to snag my tail! Hmmm. Did I think it was a new toy hanging there and twitching?
Then I started to go around and around up there...I was chasing my tail around the lamp post! MOL!
I did that a lot in the past couple of days...a silly and useless game, but so much fun!Meowmy hopes that I will not be the cause of knocking over that lamp...
Thanks for all your kind and fun comments on my newly posted pics.

[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] The other day I was spending a lot of time sitting in front of the heating vent, and also the cold air return...looking and intently staring into their depths...For what meowmy has no idea...she even shone a flashlight in there to see if she could help me in case I had tossed one of my smaller toys in there. Negative.
But whatever it was, I have either lost interest or 'it' has disappeared.
Long time ago, we did see real live mice in the cold air return...but that mostly only happens when the fall season with its cold damp weather starts to make the outdoors nasty.
I guess we shall never know, and I shall never tell...MOL!

[ Leave A Comment | 6 people already have ] OMC! It was 10F this morning when meowmy went out with dog-guy.BRRR!
There was about 2 inches of snow from Saturday's 'dump' and there was a lot of ice on the roads from snow melting and refreezing. Not the environment you would expect to see...the first ROBIN!
How on earth will this birdie find anything to eat, or good shelter?
Well anyways meowmy felt is was just another small signal that spring will come...eventually...hopefully!
Here is a good laugh! Laughing is great on Mondays to get the week off to a good start!
A LITTLE THREE YEAR OLD BOY IS SITTING ON THE TOILET.
HIS MOTHER THINKS HE HAS BEEN IN THERE TOO LONG, SO SHE GOES IN TO SEE WHAT'S UP.
THE LITTLE BOY IS SITTING ON THE TOILET READING A BOOK.
BUT ABOUT EVERY 10 SECONDS OR SO HE PUTS THE BOOK DOWN, GRIPS ONTO THE TOILET SEAT WITH HIS LEFT HAND AND HITS HIMSELF ON TOP OF THE HEAD WITH HIS RIGHT HAND.
HIS MOTHER SAYS: "BILLY, ARE YOU ALL RIGHT? YOU'VE BEEN IN HERE FOR A WHILE."
BILLY SAYS: "I'M FINE, MUMMY... I JUST HAVEN'T DONE IT YET."
MOTHER SAYS: "OK, YOU CAN STAY HERE A FEW MORE MINUTES. BUT, BILLY, WHY ARE YOU HITTING YOURSELF ON THE HEAD?"
"IT WORKS ON THE TOMATO SAUCE BOTTLE!"
Are you giggling? Yes!? Good! Have a great day!

[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] Not much going on here these days...meowmy saw some cranes, another sign of spring! And she could go out in her shoes when she took dog-guy for his walk.
Our yard and esp the driveway looks like a muddy swamp, but we are not grumbling too loudly at all, considering the awful and horrible disaster of earthquakes and tsunamis that have happened today.
Our hearts and purrs go out to all those whose lives have been impacted by these things.
Our home city is a sister city to a Japanese city - Takasaki -This city does not appear to have suffered too much from the tsunami, judging by maps, but they must have felt the earthquake, for sure.
Our sister churches have missions there, (in Japan), and some of them have not been able to be contacted, while others have made contact that they are OK. Likely it will be a fretful and scary time for all of them, and their families back in North America.
I have spent some time today basking in the lovely sun's rays of warmth. So welcome after a long stretch of cloudy, dull days.
May all of my fellow furs be able to do likewise!
Here is another gleaning from meowmy's email:
The 92 Year Old Preacher
While watching a little TV on Sunday instead of going to church, I watched a church in Atlanta honoring one of its senior pastors who had been retired many years. He was 92 at that time and I wondered why the church even bothered to ask the old gentleman to preach at that age.
After a warm welcome, introduction of this speaker, and as the applause quieted down, he rose from his high back chair and walked slowly, with great effort and a sliding gait to the podium. Without a note or written paper of any kind he placed both hands on the pulpit to steady himself and then quietly and slowly he began to speak....
"When I was asked to come here today and talk to you, your pastor asked me to tell you what was the greatest lesson ever learned in my 50-odd years of preaching. I thought about it for a few days and boiled it down to just one thing that made the most difference in my life and sustained me through all my trials. The one thing that I could always rely on when tears and heartbreak and pain and fear and sorrow paralyzed me.... The only thing that would comfort was this verse....... .....
"Jesus loves me this I know.
For the Bible tells me so.
Little ones to Him belong,
We are weak but He is strong.....
Yes, Jesus loves me....
The Bible tells me so."
When he finished, the church was quiet. You actually could hear his footsteps as he shuffled back to his chair. I don't believe I will ever forget it.
A pastor once stated, "I always noticed that it was the adults who chose the children's hymn 'Jesus Loves Me' (for the children of course during a hymn sing, and it was the adults who sang the loudest because I could see they knew it the best."
"Senior version of Jesus Loves Me"
Here is a new version just for us who have white hair or no hair at all. For us over middle age (or even those almost there) and all you others, check out this newest version of Jesus Loves Me:
JESUS LOVES ME
Jesus loves me, this I know,
Though my hair is white as snow
Though my sight is growing dim,
Still He bids me trust in Him.
YES, JESUS LOVES ME.. YES, JESUS LOVES ME..
YES, JESUS LOVES ME, FOR THE BIBLE TELLS ME SO.
Though my steps are oh, so slow,
With my hand in His I'll go
On through life, let come what may,
He'll be there to lead the way.
When the nights are dark and long,
In my heart He puts a song..
Telling me in words so clear,
"Have no fear, for I am near."
When my work on earth is done,
And life's victories have been won.
He will take me home above,
Then I'll understand His love..
I love Jesus, does He know?
Have I ever told Him so?
Jesus loves to hear me say,
That I love Him every day.
"Reach out and touch" a friend or a loved one.
God Bless Us All!!!
I hope that you will find peace and comfort in that simple message and truth.

[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] Kudos To My Brave Meowmy! She stuck it out and chewed her virtual pencils and exercised her brain cells...and now I have a decorated page!
It is rather a simple arrangement, but still, I am proud of her. Over a year on Catster, and now I have a pretty green page. Now meowmy is worried that I may stay green too long, cause she will have to keep up with all the changes for each holiday/season. I guess the practice of repeated repetitions of this skill will make it quicker and easier...
Go fur it, Meowmy!
I was so happy I spent ages chasing my tail, chasing a crinkle ball until it got stuck under the dryer, head butted meowmy's elbow while she typed at the puter, and took long naps on the CPU because it was so warm from all the 'puter work meowmy was doing.
Please keep all the peeps of Japan in your pawyerings, they are so vulnerable, and in dire trouble.
There are also a lot of sick kitties that I know of...I am purring and pawyering constantly fur all of them, and their furmilies. And a not a few new angel-kitties...so sad for their furmilies.
Nevertheless, I wish you all a good day!

[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ] Wow! The wind sounds like a train station here...not much rain, no thunder, just mostly WIND!(Some gusts over 40mph)
There must be some kind of pawrty going on in the heavens...a catabration of St Patty's Day...a huge bowling game,
All the many rushing paws of the kitty welcoming committee. They had to scramble yesterday when famous, now Angel Hazel Lucy arrived, and then shortly thereafter Marrakech was there, too.
So now after a day of rest and orientation, they are having a pawrty already??!
Well, our dog-guy was outside a lot today, and he said he overheard some whistling in the treetops, that they were having the previously scheduled St Patty's Day pawrty so as not to disappoint any angel furs who had been looking forward to it.
So while the earth meowmy's of all the angels, esp the newer ones feel rather sad and lonely, it is good to know that evfurryone is doing well and enjoying this time.
I like to think that the 'left behind' meowmy's are feeling a little less sad, knowing these things. Big hugs to all of them!

[ Leave A Comment | 8 people already have ] OMC! I am a DDP! What fun! What an honor, too!
Thanks to all who sent me prezzies, messages and pics. I shall try to send out thanks to you all...soon, MOL!
Meowmy said she had a strange dream last night, something about dancing all around in a new pair of white clogs! Huh?! She doesn't even have any white clogs...but perhaps in her subconscious mind she was already catabrating for this DDP, MOL!
She said she saw a hawk nest (eerie?) when she was out with dog-guy. She also saw a large number of snowdrops in someone's yard. So pretty and the very first blooms of this new spring season!
Too bad her camera was at home...
Purrs to all for a great day!

[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] One of the first Catster furends that we had needs HELP, as soon as possible because she is sick, and needs to be re-homed.
Her name is: Shelly Sue.
That is her page, and she is such a pretty and loving kitty.
Some family out there in Cyberspace will be blessed by having this special kitty in their lives.
Please read her pages and diary and consider if YOU might be the one to be the new Mommy or Daddy of this most precious kitty.
If not could you be so kind as to spread the word so someone else may have the chance to get to know her?!
Thanks from the bottom of my kitty heart.

[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ] No kidding, furends...there is a mouse in our house...even meowmy saw it...and had a conniption of course...and this is true, not an April Fool's Joke...
We were doing things here in the house, meowmy was playing River & Simone's game quiz and out of the corner of her eye, she sees this little dark critter scurrying across the carpet! Eek! A mouse!
Probably found its way in here to get out of the cold days we have been having lately. We live in an old house, and there are always mice finding there way in here, at least a few every year...but mostly that happens in the fall, so this was furry unusual...and in broad daylight!
Meowmy has set out traps...but we have been prowling about trying to find it ourselves...a great source of amousement!
April 1st 2011 9:11 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 14 people already have ] Well, early this morning there was no evidence of any mouse activity in the traps. Meowmy noticed that I in particular was stalking a new area, so she planned to put out a trap there...she left to do chores and stuff...
When she came in with the traps to figure out where to put them...well lo and behold, there on the floor in front of the recliner where I was resting with Minko...there was a DEAD MOUSE!
Aha! We..or I most likely...got that intruder! But we were not interested in eating it...we lost interest after it stopped moving...
Meowmy let me sniff it,
Pipo & Mouse
and than she took it out for a mouse funeral...it was a pretty Deer mouse, actually, not a yucky house mouse varmint.
Well, that was my excitement for the day!
April 10th 2011 5:24 am
[ Leave A Comment | 19 people already have ] My life has been a lot less exciting, this P.M. (Post Mouse).
We have had some 'yo-yo' weather, and that means a lot of dank, cloudy days...the ones that produce April Showers. But yesterday was partly sunny, so the windows were all opened to send spring breezes wafting through our den. What pleasure it is to sit in an open window and smell the breezes, and watch the birds and bugs.
Meowmy's bluebells are blooming, now and we have one lonely crocus! Meowmy thinks some naughty squirrel dug up the others...Other plants are pushing up their leaves, and the buds on the trees are looking very 'fat'! Spring is here!
Meowmy wants to make a notification to all of our good Catster furends.
Meowmy is starting her class tomorrow. I think she told you about that a while ago, but now it is starting...
This means our times here for romping and purring with all of you will be greatly curtailed:(
She will not have time to make those picture mementos she was helping Minko & I, to send to you, they take ages to make, sometimes.
So also pawlease furgive us if we miss 'occasions' such as DDP's, birthdays and so on.
We will sorely miss our fun here, but we will try to come and purr at you as time permits...and I will try to convince meowmy that she has lots of time, nevermind the household chores, dog walks, and homework...MOL!
Have a nice Sunday, and a great week!
April 23rd 2011 8:27 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Hello once again...after quite a silence here...at least in my diary!
Poor meowmy has had a lot of her free time; that we used to use to come here; curtailed so that she can go to school instead.
But each evening she manages a bit of time to snoop around the doings here. Yeah! Then she asks me and Minko what we want to mew to the other kitties...she even found some time to make a few pictures for our pals! Yeah!
We have sure had a lot of alone time when the pawrents are gone all day. Only the dog-guy is still here...he keeps barking at stuff he sees outside, and then I have to use my smacky paw to silence him, MOL!
Today was a wonderful sunny day! So nice and welcome to my furs! The past few days were very dank and dreary. We had the windows wide open all day, the temp was about 70F.
Meowmy says the weeds are growing furry fast now. And that soon the grass will need to have a haircut.
We haven't had any more mice in here...dog-guy nearly snagged himself a snake out in the back this afternoon. Good thing THAT didn't come in our den! But meowmy rescued it and put it to the other side of the fence out of dog-guys reach.
There have been some bunnies around here...in training for tomorrow? They didn't leave any eggs, though! Didn't see them carrying any baskets either! MOL!
I have been following pawppy like a live shadow! And meowing loudly. I need a belly rub, I need to have my laser light, I need to have attention! I even give paw pats to send some of my messages to my pawrents, that is a rather new thing with me...MOL! I think it is a type of payback for the long hours we are abandoned each day, lately!
My unfurbros will be returning from college next week. Then at least I can get attention on a regular basis!
Meowmy says she got 95% in her first exam, and 100% on the second one, past Thursday. Yeah! I guess if meowmy is happy, then I shall have to let her go to school each day, even if it means being away from her...
I want to wish each and evfurry one of my pals a Happy Easter!
Purrs to all!
May 5th 2011 7:57 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] OMC! How long it has been since I last convinced meowmy to take some of my cat-tation!
Easter has come and gone, and so has the time, MOL! Already well into May.
Meowmy passed her course with an A! Yeah! Cheers to her...but she still has to study...because she has to still take a state exam to get 'certified' to do the work that she went to school for.
Ah, well I will enjoy her company when ever she is home.
Unfurbros came home for a few days, before they left again! They did manage to give the lawn a much needed haircut! But it will be waiting for another when they come back, this Saturday. Hope the weather cooperates!
The abandoned house next door has found itself a new owner. Right now there is a big dumpster there, and they are going to replace the roof. That needs to be urgently done before they can do any work inside. An older couple bought it, to get fixed up for their daughter and son-in-law...who are in South America somewhere, not sure of any other details...but it is good to know that someone will once again be giving some much needed love and care to that property. Meowmy spoke with those peeps, and they seem very nice and sensible. Hope that this will make for a good neighbourly relationship.
There haven't been any creatures in our house to be chased and caught, except for bugs...
Meowmy says the boring days are fine with her, she said she likes peace and quiet!
Dog-guy found some stinky stuff to roll in, last night...but meowmy did not notice it, ubntil after he had come in the house and jumped into the nest on the love seat...he did some snoot rubbing in there, and made it so stinky that even I was not going to go near it! Doesn't he know that stinky stuff belongs in the litterbox??
No wonder that this dog-guy dude annoys me, Sheesh!
Well, it is late, and meowmy wants to take some more cat-tations from Minko...
We have some wonderfur nice and sunny days, but now the evening is wet...and more of that in the next few days, too, YUCK! I so much prefer the sun!

[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ] A diversion for the moment, to do some humorous reflection upon Mothers, since we Catster Moms have all been there or are there! ...of course perhaps the older generation of Mom's will understand this so much better! MOL!

I think I heard Meowmy say that she has heard all of those, and likely voiced most of them to her own kids! MOL!
May 14th 2011 7:44 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 6 people already have ] OMC! We are having pink snow, yellow snow, green snow, chestnut snow and some very large thick white snowflakes, too. What? Oh, good to know meowmy! I thought the world was in trouble...it is just lots of petals that have come off of the flowering trees and shrubs from all the wind and heavy rain of the past few days...At least I can rest easy about that...
On the otherhand, I heard that we also have a big dog in our yard. He has been there for may years now, since meowmy got him as a wee pup. Good grief, why didn't she ever warn us of the inherent danger out there...isn't she aware that us kitties may try and get out and then that big dogwood tree may decide to bark at us! What? Oh...sorry meowmy, I thought it was a real dog. MOL!
We had so much rain the past couple of days. At least we did have two days of warm weather complete with sun puddles before that.
This moist weather has made for lots of growing in our yard...and that attracts a lot of birds to entertain Minko & I from the safety our our cat condo window perch.
Bluebirds, bluejays, indigo buntings, chickadees, titmice, juncos, field sparrows, robins, chipping sparrows, tree sparrows, white crowned sparrows, wrens, all kinds of wood peckers including the huge pileated woodpecker; goldfinches, hummingbirds, purple finches, rosebreasted grosbeaks, cardinals, grackles, cowbirds, redwinged blackbirds and this list is by no means complete!
I sit and chatter an awful lot some days! Meowmy says there is hawk family that she sees along the dog walking route. Also she sees lots of geese and sandhill cranes. And those gangly wild turkeys, too.
Well, I hope that the sun will soon come out of hiding, I miss the sun puddles immensely.
Purrs to all!

So wonderful is this news that I had to mew it twice!
Nevermind that it is windy and cool, the sun IS shining!
This morning I saw that the sky was pretty and blue, and there were some high feathery clouds. Meowmy said those are known as fairweather clouds, and they are called mare's tales. Horses in the sky, huh?
I also have heard about clouds called mackerel...I wonder if those taste good? MOL!
Perhaps the inventors of those names for the clouds were farmers and fishermen...
Off to find a nice warm sunpuddle!
By the way, If the rain comes back before there really is a need for it, I shall smack my paws together at it and mew some naughty language...such as ...

[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Well this is a 'long weekend' fur my Canadian furmily.
Victoria Day to be exact.
The catabration of the Queen's Birthday...that is to say Queen Victoria...otherwise it likely would have a different name! MOL!
Fireworks are a usual event, too.
Well, things seem to be getting an early start n the heavens around here...thunderstorms with lots of lightnings - who needs fireworks! The booming of the thunder was so loud it could have rivaled any good fireworks show.
For now it seems to have fizzled out, but it looks like there is more coming during the night, when fur sure it will be another display of heavenly fireworks.
Then in a weeks time we get to catabrate Memorial Day. A day that is a bit more contemplative and serious, but fun, nevertheless.
Well, it was nice to have pawppy at home for the weekend, his lap is so nice and large and soft...meowmy remarked how Minko & I had donated a huge amount of furs to the cause of his pants...MOL!
May 28th 2011 8:38 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 6 people already have ] The rain, folks, the rain... it feels like we might be in for one of these forty days and forty nights things...MOL!
But seriously, where has the sun gone?
I do miss it so much. I miss the comforting warmth as it caresses my furs and body, I miss how t brightens up the outdoors so that I can see the pretty birds and chatter at them I miss it for how it makes the flowers look so cheery.
I just plain wonder if it will be back anytime soon. perhaps it needed a vacation. I sure hope it didn't go into retirement, MOL!
This morning even though the radar said there was no rain, meowmy went out for a walk with dog guy, and said she needed her umbrella for the drizzle and misting rains...the ground is even all squishy. The creek is over the banks, and the nearby school has such a pond in the yard, that it is all over the sidewalk there. OMC!
Well perhaps by Monday, Memorial Day we shall have warm and sunny weather...if the weatherman can work out a deal with the sun! MOL!
PS: Have a safe and wonderfur Memorial Day. Take time to thank the servicemen, past and present who truly work very hard to keep us safe and free.
I hope our weather is good enough to fly the flag for the occasion.
May 29th 2011 8:17 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 6 people already have ] OMC! kitties, we had so much lightening here, it was continual. The radar screen was covered!
The weatherman dude said there were over twenty-seven-thousand(!!!) strikes per minute at some point in this nasty storm that thundered over us at about 440 pm this afternoon. And there were wind gust clocked at over 60 MPH! Also there were possible tornadoes, including one about 8 miles south of us. It ripped the roofs off of a school, many businesses and yanked trees out of the ground like it was pulling weeds. Not to mention all the other damage. OMC! It was so scary.
Not to worry, though , sweet concerned pals of mine...I am safe, as are the rest of my furmily.
A bit close for comfort.
Not the finest Memorial Day for a lot of peeps, but one they certainly will nefur furget!
I shall go and find my quiet nest now that all the storms have done their nasty work...And I hope that those who got this storm after we did are safe, too.

[ Leave A Comment | 6 people already have ] Yesterday, Meowmy and her sister had to go into town to get some groceries.
A lot of the businesses were still closed due to not having power after Sunday evening's terrible storms. There are trees down, on houses, on cars & trucks, and on top of power lines. Some of the power line poles are keeled over, others are snapped off like little toothpicks!
Some streets are still blocked by fallen trees, and many traffic lights are out, too. What a mess, what a headache! And how awful for the peeps who have suffered at the hands of the wind. It was determined that it was not a tornado but straight line winds that ravaged our town's south side. Winds of over 100 MPH! OMC!
Well the store they wanted to go to was closed, but thankfully unscathed, though there were a lot of wires down all around it. So off to another place...it was open, but running on a generator. The funniest thing, if you want to call it funny was the one open gas station in the area was swamped with vehicles. All the other ones were not able to pump gas, even if they had any...so this place was doing a huge lot of business...good thing we didn't need any, MOL! There is some humor in the situation...
Several school districts were still closed today. and not sure whether they will be able to have classes tomorrow.
The thing that gave meowmy goosebumps was at the cemetery, nearby where this happened. Almost all the beautiful trees there were down, on top of the gravestones, and crushing all the pretty flags that had been placed there for Memorial Day.
Across the street the business was not damaged at all! Go figure.
Today we were under a severe weather threat again. That must have been scary for all those peeps to be hearing that. The sky went all black again, but all we had was a few rumbles of thunder, no rain or severe conditions in our town, thank the Lord.
Pawppy works for the city and all the workers are scrambling to get things back up and running. There are a lot of outside crews here too to help with cleanup, etc.
It is amazing meowmy says, how peeps come together to help each other in times like this.
I hope you all have a quiet and safe night!

[ Leave A Comment | 9 people already have ] We all should remember this when in our time of need...
HOW TO CALL THE POLICE WHEN YOU'RE OLD, AND DON'T MOVE FAST ANYMORE.
George Phillips, an elderly man, from Orangeville, Ontario, Canada was going up to bed, when his wife told him that he'd left the light on in the garden shed, which she could see from the bedroom window. George opened the back door to go turn off the light, but saw that there were people in the shed stealing things.
He phoned the police, who asked "Is someone in your house?"
He said "No," but some people are breaking into my garden shed and stealing from me.
Then the police dispatcher said "All patrols are busy. You should lock your doors and an officer will be along when one is available"
George said, "Okay."
He hung up the phone and counted to 30. Then he phoned the police again.
"Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people stealing things from my shed. Well, you don't have to worry about them now because I just shot and killed them both, the dogs are eating them right now." and he hung up.
Within five minutes, six Police Cars, a SWAT Team, a Helicopter, two Fire Trucks, a Paramedic, and an Ambulance showed up at the Phillips' residence, and caught the burglars red-handed.
One of the Policemen said to George, "I thought you said that you'd shot them!"
George said, "I thought you said there was nobody available!"
(True Story) I LOVE IT! Don't mess with old people
It seems funny, but I think it would really work anywhere!
Can kitties make these kinds of calls, too? MOL!
Hey, I sure hope that you don't need this info...

Doughboy was buried in a lightly greased coffin. Dozens of celebrities turned out to pay their respects, including Mrs. Butterworth, Hungry
Jack, the California Raisins, Betty Crocker, the Hostess Twinkies, and Captain Crunch. The grave site was piled high with flours.
Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy, and lovingly described Doughboy as a man who never knew how much he was kneaded. Born and bread in Minnesota, Doughboy rose quickly in show business, but his later life was filled with turnovers. He was not considered a very smart cookie, wasting much of his dough on half-baked schemes. Despite being a little flaky at times, he still was a crusty old man, and was considered a positive roll model for millions.
Doughboy is survived by his wife, Play Dough, three children: John Dough, Jane Dough and Dosey Dough, plus they had one in the oven. He is also survived by his elderly father, Pop Tart.
The funeral was held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes.
If this made you smile for even a brief second, please rise to the occasion and take time to pass it on and share that smile with someone
else who may be having a crumby day and kneads a lift.
Well, meowmy thought that us Catster members would love yet another giggle...so here it was! After she giggled, it was time to share it with all of our furry pals!

[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ] Here is another funny story...wow that spidery internet web sure has some fun things stuck in it...I wonder if I can find some nom-noms and mousies or catnip..that would be fun stuff to share with my furends...
FORREST GUMP GOES TO HEAVEN
The day finally arrived.
Forrest Gump dies and goes to Heaven. He is at The Pearly Gates, met by St. Peter himself.
However, the gates are closed,
So Forrest approaches the gatekeeper.
St. Peter said, "Well, Forrest,it is certainly good to see you.
We have heard a lot about you.
I must tell you, though, that the place is filling up fast, and we have been administering an entrance examination for everyone. The test is short, but you have to pass it before you can get into Heaven."
Forrest responds, "It sure is good to be here, St. Peter, sir. But nobody ever told me about any entrance exam. I sure hope that the test ain't too hard. Life was a big enough test as it was."
St. Peter continued, "Yes, I know, Forrest, but the test is only three questions.
What two days of the week begin with the letter T?
How many seconds are there in a year?
What is God's first name?"
Forrest leaves to think the questions Over. He returns the next day and sees St. Peter, who waves him up, and says, "Now that you have had a chance to think the questions over, tell me your answers"
Forrest replied, "Well, the first one -- which two days in the week begins with the letter "T"?
Shucks, that one is easy. That would be Today and Tomorrow."
The Saint's eyes opened wide and he exclaimed, "Forrest, that is not what I was thinking, but you do have a point, and I guess I did not specify, so I will give you credit for that answer. How about the next one?" asked St. Peter.
"How many seconds in a year ?
Now that one is harder," replied Forrest, but I thunk and thunk about that, and I guess the only answer can be twelve." Astounded, St. Peter said, "Twelve? Twelve? Forrest, how in Heaven's name could you come up with twelve seconds in a year?"
Forrest replied, "Shucks, there's got to be twelve: January 2nd, February 2nd, March 2nd... "
"Hold it," interrupts St. Peter. "I see where you are going with this, and I see your point, though that was not quite what I had in mind....but I will have to give you credit for that one, too. Let us go on with the third and final question...Can you tell me God's first name"?
"Sure," Forrest replied, "it's Andy."
"Andy?" exclaimed an exasperated and frustrated St Peter.
"Ok, I can understand how you came up with your answers to my first two questions, but just how in the world did you come up with the name Andy as the first name of God?"
"Shucks, that was the easiest one of all," Forrest replied. "I learnt it from the song, "ANDY WALKS WITH ME, ANDY TALKS WITH ME, ANDY TELLS ME I AM HIS OWN."
St. Peter opened the Pearly Gates, and said: "Run Forrest, Run."
Give me a sense of humor, Lord. Give me the ability to understand a clean joke, to get some humor out of life, And to pass it on to other folks.
So I have!
Hope you got your daily dose of giggle, that is important fur our health! MOL!
And...Meowmy passed her state exam! That made her happy, too...but kind of bittersweet fur me and Minko, because now she will be able to find a job...so less time for us to play here...but play we will, while we still can! MOL!
Catster is a ton of fun!

[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ] Acrobatics - catrobatics!
A lot of that going on here, today from me, the catrobatic kitty!
Gyrations of all sorts!
That and more from me!
All in my efforts to try and catch the biggest fly I evfur saw!
As big as a bumblebee!
Whee! I was all over the house trying to snag that buzzy thing, and I had it between my paws at one point. Then when I tried to gobble it up (Mmmm!) it made such a big buzz that I was astounded and let go of it...silly me! Lost my chance. Minko wasn't there to tease me about it, though, He was napping on top of Pawppy...keeping him warm for Pawppy's Day.
Well, meowmy does not know if I caught that fly dude when they were gone to Church...and I am not going to tell her either...MOL!
I hope all the kitties had a nice Father's Day with the Daddys in their lives or perhaps some other male purrson of note that they can show love to.
June 22nd 2011 10:28 am
[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ] Yup! I did a lot of that Caterwauling yesterday morning...the tune was called: 'I Don't Want To Be In Here!'
Meowmy walked up to me where I was enjoying a furry comfy nap, and she snatched me up and...stuffed me in the cat carrier! How dare she do that! No warning at all!
And Minko was already in there trying to get OUT!
Wasn't going to happen!
Meowmy stuffed me in there with my brofur and then she took us to the van...for our yearly v-e-t visit...
Well Minko & I let her know all the way there that we were not in agreement with this arrangement at all! So we caterwauled and sang and miaowed loudly!
When we got to the v-e-t we got ourselves in the back of that carrier and made ourselves as teeny as possible, and I gave the stink eye to any fur or peep who dared to look in...
Meowmy wished she had taken her camera along, MOL!
Then when the v-e-t tried to get me out of there, I used my smacky paws...and I also tried desperately to attach myself to the edges of the carrier. By now I *wanted* to stay in this shelter! Go figure!
Anyways the v-e-t said I looked great, and my teeth were in excellent condition. Thanks, meowmy for always taking good care of them, even if I hate having them brushed...
I weighed in at 11.20 pounds.That is up from the 10.8 that I was last year, but I have been as heavy as 11.8 so no bad words for me yet, like *diet*...
Meowmy will try to keep me a bit more active...so that is why right now I am enjoying yet another cat-nap!
Meowmy was furry surpawsed that the ride home was subdued and no further singing or caterwauling was intoned!
June 27th 2011 8:33 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 6 people already have ] Since I seem to have become expanded around my waistline, meowmy says I need a lot more exercise.
I used to be furry active when she brought out the laser light, but lately I only chase it halfheartedly. Minko always shows up, and then I just do not want to do anything...he butts in!
Well then meowmy was moving things, and she found my 'fishing poles'... Oh Yeah!
I have been running the length of the house trying to get that rope...around the diningroom table, over the couch, up & down the stairs...phew! Then meowmy sticks it somewhere so that the end of the string dangles and tantalizes me, so that I spend even more energy to try and figure out how to capture that rope!
Only problems with this method are...she has to remember to put it away each evening or when she isn't around, because I try to eat it when I do manage to snag it! And she nearly poked her eye out walking past where it was sticking out! MOL!
Well, If my poundage stabilizes or shrinks I fur sure will not be doing any awful diet stuff...Hooray!
I think I will be sleeping furry well, also!

[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ] What a stressful day!
First dog-guy decided to break the peacefur morning here, by his loud barking, the nerve!
Later meowmy got out the little gadget that goes 'ping' Oh how I hate that! It is the camera...
Then when we were sunning ourselves, minding our own business, the deafening roars of jets broke our somnolence...Blue Angels. OMC! Way too loud for me & Minko. We were looking up to see what was happening.
Well, we couldn't see them but we sure could hear them. Later other ones were doing their thing in our area, too. We are about 8 or 10 miles from the airport...so they were overhead to 'regroup'. They were practicing for their shows on Saturday & Sunday. Oh! That means they will be doing this again...for 3 more days? Does anyfur have earplugs that we can borrow?
And soon the noises of hot air balloons will fill the air with their whooshings...at least that doesn't bother us that much, but dog-guy goes beserk!
And then the noises of fireworks will boom through the night quietude too. I really do need some earplugs.
Tomorrow is Canada Day, the 143 birthday of Canada!
HAPPY CANADA DAY!!
I hope all my furends will have a great day tomorrow, and a safe holiday weekend.
At least I won't be able to hear any of the Candian fireworks...we are too far from the border...about 170 miles to be exact, the way meowmy drives her car over there...and of course then she has to go about that much farther to her sister...who is working this weekend, so that is why she is staying with us, YEAH!

[ Leave A Comment | 8 people already have ] OMC! There are tons of yummy kitty cupcakes at the Cat's Meow Blog!
All kinds of them...I sent a message to Tate, one of my pals, so that he could go and feast his kitty eyes on them...since of course he is the cupcake king of Catsterland!
Well anyone who enjoys cupcakes should go over there, too! YUMMY!
Here is a link for a quick entry to the blog:
Cupcakes at the Cat's Meow Blog
Well, We are now in a ordinary pattern of days, after all the hullabaloo of the holidays of July 1 and July 4...There sure was a lot of coming and going here, and the noise!
Well now it is all nice and peaceful again! The way I like it, of course.
Meowmy went for some job interviews, and has filled out a lot of job applications, but so far no job offers...seems like they are as hard to come by as any others!
Oh well, that means that Minko & I will be able to enjoy her presence at the house for that much longer! MOL!
Purrs to all!
July 15th 2011 3:19 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ] OMC! There are going to be way too many changes in my den...Yowl!
Meowmy got a job!
While that may be the best news she could have hoped for, it is not for me & Minko! Yowl!
It means that our time to romp and play and even sift through litter here is going to be severely limited. Yowl!
I means hardly any time to make comments and things like that. Yowl!
It means that under the name of We Bees Siamese, there won't be very many pics made, if at all! Yowl!
It means meowmy will be gone evfurry day, for at least 9 hours. Yowl!
What will we do with out our warm,soft lap? Yowl!
It means that we won't have our many nip fixes during the times that she is gone, and we won't get to play with that laser light, or the 'fish-pole' toys as often. Yowl!
Yowl - Scowl - Howl - Yowl!
Well of course it does mean that perhaps we might get more play toys, treats and maybe even new kitty nests...and we won't have to worry about where our next meal may be coming from, not that we evfur have, MOL! Hey...I didn't Yowl!
Ok Meowmy, you did go to school to get certified as a CNA, and now you want to go and help all those peeps who cannot do it fur themselves anymore...Hey! Do they have therapy kitties there? Meowmy said that she did see a dog over there, he even jumped right in her lap!
So if you all don't hear furry much from us or our WBS namesake, then just be patient and remember that we are just hiding in the shadows, and you nevfur know when we might come out and pounce on somefur! MOL:!
Yowl! We want to really play! We do love all our furends and will miss them so much...Meowmy said she has made some pics for birthdays in advance, but that it will be almost impossible to spend the time it takes to make any for DDP's and such. So if you happen to have been the proud recipient of pics from us, treasure them! YOWL! They are going to become rare commodities, like precious gold! MOL!
We do know that there are many other well talented kitties who will still be making and sending out pics ans mementos. Tundra and Manytoes and their talented furmily are among them. Also Teddy Bearz and Big Harry and so many others!
Perhaps once meowmy gets into some kind of a routine we will be able to spend a bit more time here, making our presence known, but if we are quiet, just know that we are not gone or hiding, we are patiently waiting for some of that most precious commodity of all, Time!
Purrs to all of you, we love you so furry much, and will miss you as much as you will be missing us! We won't furget, though to remind meowmy to let us come and play here as often as we can!

[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] A New Game- Lovebug Tag! To play, copy the 6 questions below and paste/answer them in your diary! Then tag some friends to play, too!
1. Meow! Are you a noisy kitty or a quiet kitty?
I don't chat a lot, but when I do, I use all kinds of vocalizations...from chirps to peeps to yowls...and purring is a good loud volume, too.
2. Litterbox! Cover your business or let some other kitty cover?
I do NOT cover! And I have no problem leaving it for Minko!!
3. Happy! Favorite Daily Routine?
I like when Pawppy walks past me to rub my belly or my chin...and I follow him for more!
4. Hiss! Least Favorite Routine?
Brushing my teeth is so undignified...sometimes I even growl/yowl at meowmy...
5. Ding-Dong! What do you think about visitors to your house?
I just go to a quieter area and sit so that I can observe from a safe distance or retreat if needed...if deemed safe, I might even go and greet the stranger, or at least give him the sniff...
6. Friends! Do you like other animals?
I love my furbling brofur, Minko. but not the dog-guy, I give him lots of smacky paws...and also lots of them to the dog dude that my meowmy's sisfur brings here sometimes. I have not met other critters, except a mouse...which I did away with!
Here is a friend that I am tagging!
Please, no one feel left out- if you are reading this and you want to play, consider yourself tagged! Be sure to let your friends know they've been tagged by sending them a message or rosette! Angels can play, too! Tell us about your life at the bridge or your life at home before the bridge!

[ Leave A Comment | 30 people already have ] Whoo-wee!
It sure has been hot around here...I have not even been hunting for sun puddles! I did some playing and running...and then just plopped down on the floor like a dumped bag...and I was on my back...looked like my furend Simone, begging for a belly rub...
Meowmy has found that I play far longer and vigorously when I get to play with my 'fishing pole' wand...and there isn't even any toy on the end of it anymore! MOL! Then after some active meowmy-me play she hangs it up in such a way as to tempt me to try and catch it...so that I have to jump up off the floor. Sometimes I do snag it, and then she has to replace it up there and I go at it all over again!
No wonder I get all hot! MOL!
Meowmy's first week of work is done,and she got through it OK...we managed to meow at her so that we got to play here each evening for a while...thanks meowmy, we just wish it could have been longer, but some is better than none!
On Monday she and Pawppy will catabrate(!) their 24th wedding annifursary! Yeah! They can't believe it...the years have flown by!
Recently meowmy also catabrated her 5th year annifursary of being a survivor! She thinks of that time as being so far away already... she is so furry thankfur for her health and that is one of the reasons she wanted to go back to work, to be able to be a help to those who are not in the best of their health...
Evfurry day is a new blessing fur meowmy and health is the greatest one of all! So furry precious and to be treated with the utmost care, just like us kitties!
Purrs to all, stay cool and have a wonderfur Sunday!

[ Leave A Comment | 8 people already have ] Meowmy was truly nuts tonight...purrhaps the storms we are having have messed with the electrical circuitry in her head...
Well she was on the floor pawlaying with dog-guy...that makes her nuts in my book anyfurs...
Suddenly with dog-guy on his back on the floor, she picks up Minko and got him all relaxed in her arms...then ...she tried to put him on the dog-guy...like a piggyback rider or whatevfur.
Minko says mew-no, and scampers off, I came to see what was happening and dog-guy gets up and zooms around looking for Minko...but when he sees me instead, he just sits down and grins that doggy silly grin of his...he knows what I can do to him! MOL!
Well, if meowmy didn't try it again!
Meowmy I think I need to use my smacky paw on you!
No luck that time either...serves you right meowmy.
Well that's why I think meowmy has lost it folks, work has gotten her screws loose or something, MOL!
All is well, though.
And pawlease do not try that game at your den...

[ Leave A Comment | 25 people already have ] Meowmy did not know that the Fed-ex man had put 2 boxes at our front door last evening...then we had storms...and this morning she found them, all soggy...that rain must have come sideways onto our porch!
The contents of the boxes were fine though! Good thing...Each box had 2 Cat Fancy 2012 calenders in them! What a surprise!
I am featured on August 3...how about that! Exactly a year from now, meowmy will be able to tear off the previous day's page and there I will be peering at her, MOL!
Gotta go now & see if I know any other kitties in the calender pages...

[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] Wow! Yesterday meowmy told me that the Dairy Gal had caught me in her wheel of fortune again!
I hadn't even made an entry in over a week!
Well, it was fun, nevfur the less.
Thanks to all the kitties who came over to my page to visit, leave messages and comments and pics, and gifts, too.
I love you all!
Not much else new going on here, except that meowmy is always leaving when things are going on, it seems like her work must be more important than me...MOL!
Oh, well. at least she doesn't have to be gone for days at a time, like when my whole furmily used to go away to visit other peeps in their furmily. I think this is a better arrangement!
I get food, water & litter each morning, and when she comes home she manages to find some time to play with me & Minko and get on Catster befur she goes to her own nest for the night.
But the best days are her days off...then she does not pack that lunch pail, and leave at all! Yeah!
I hope all of my furends have a nice weekend, and may you all enjoy some good lap time & cuddles!
August 24th 2011 9:08 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 6 people already have ] Yesterday we got shook up...like a blender in slow motion, or a boat on an undulating series of waves...there were eerie sounds coming from our clock's chains and the hanging decorations for our unfurbro's birthday had come to life, as did the lace curtains on the windows and doors...Meowmy's chair was swaying, too...and the thought crossed her mind that she was feeling a bit seasick! OMC! She caught the eye of unfurbro...and then they both realized that there had been an earthquake somewhere.
And we are well over 600 driving miles from the epicenter!
Our house is an old wooden frame home, so it bends and gives easily...good thing that the epicenter was not close by...or we may have had a pile of sticks to call home.
Pawppy did not feel it at his office, a new building, with concrete walls, and floors.
Our furmily who live in DC are OK, but when pawppy called our Grandmeowmy who lives in a nursing home, she was too confused to tell us anything of her own experience...too bad.
So...now we have to hope and purray that this nasty storm is not going to make too much trouble fur all of our furends and furmilies who live in its path.
Purrs to all, and to all a good night!
Stay steady! MOL!

[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] I have a favor to ask of you my furends:
One of meowmy's dogster pals has a lost kitty, his name is Furby.
He is 12 and she is so worried about his well being, being lost in the Texas heat is not good at all.
Here is his pic:
And here is a link to his page:
We are purring loudly and at full throttle.Can you purr with me for a safe return?

[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Tyson tagged me quite a while ago...and meowmy was not being a furry good catretary/typist...so that is why there was such a delay...MOL!
But I know Tyson (#990425) is a nice kitty and will furgive our tardiness.
So here is the Kitty Kat Talk Tag:
'Kitty Kat Talk Tag'
It's really easy to play as there's no rules!
You just have to answer a few Questions. So please PLAY ALONG, everyfur! I've given my answers (I guess it let's you know a bit more about me!).
1. Your Meowmy or Dad is asleep and you are furry hungry; You would.....Jump on the door knob to their bedroom until they came out...then I would stalk off in the direction of my food bowl with my tail held furry high, making sure with loud miaows that I was being followed...so they could see the situation and correct it!
2. You are furry sleepy and are sleeping on a top ledge; Meowmy or Dad would say..........
Aww, how cute he looks up there, wonder how he managed that?! I don't do that hardly at all, MOL!
I have plenty of soft chair backs to use for naps and they are plenty high...
3. You saw a dog who want's to chase something; what's the furry furst thing you would you say or do?
Unfur-tuna-nately I see a dog evfurry day because he lives here...and that does not please me at all, even though he was here about 4 years before I was!
I hiss and Mrowl at him a lot to let him know that it is I who am the boss...and often *I* chase him or keep him from going past me, MOL!
He is not allowed to chase me, evfur! MOL!
4. Your Meowmy or Dad wants you to stop tearing the furniture. You would...
I am not known for doing that, I have plenty of scratching places with that nice sisal rope on them...and some carpeted places where I can do that, too. Perhaps if I was doing the naughty scratching, I would only stop when I felt like it...sheesh who do they think they are telling me the Kitty-kat-king what to do...but if that squirty thing was around...I would probably slink away and sulk fur a while.
5. Your Kitty Kat emergency box, full of fur fashions, is locked. Oh No! You would....
Be evfur so happy! MOL! THough I have some pics with me in unfashionable nonkitty wear, it was not my idea, let me tell you that!
I hope that the key would be lost furevfur!
And if I needed to appear more handsome than I am, I would enlist Minko to help me do an extra thorough grooming session..with our versatile and trustworthy tongues!
Well that's it...if you want to play after reading this, feel free to copy the questions and insert your own answers.
I am not going to tag anyfurs at this point...consider yourself tagged if you read this and have not already played.
Have a great weekend...we have to spend a lot of alone time as meowmy is working the whole weekend!
So not fair, but that is just how it is.
Till next time! MIAOW!

[ Leave A Comment | 10 people already have ] Hey furs...Luke wants us to go and find the key to unlock that door that is keeping him in that window for a century or something long time like that.
He needs to get out to do ...you know...and get some food and some loving cuddles from his peeps! It must be lonely in that Cat of the week pen...
HQ are you listening to us...all of us want to free Luke, and Gizmo the dog needs to get out, too.
Or as a pirate: AARRGGHH!
Hey here is an idea, why don't we get banded together as pirates and cause an event in that doggy/kitty window to free those furs...reverse mutiny or something like that, BOL!
September 24th 2011 9:28 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ] I want to say thanks to all those who sent me, Minko and WBS those fun Pirate flag gifts last Monday.
That was a ton of fun!
Get your barf bags ready, now...
I was sitting in a nice sun puddle the other morning, close to where Pawppy was eating his meal.
Dog guy was under the table sharing the rest of the sun puddle...but I was higher up on the kitty condo.
Suddenly, meowmy heard this familiar sound...and she stealthily picked up a open piece of already read newspaper...but I moved onto the dining room table. Afterall, pawppy had a nice meal there, and I was thinking how lovely it would be to add some dessert to it, MOL!
Meowmy whispered to pawppy, not to move lest I be running off and puking in some carpeted area...YUCK!
Well whispering makes dog-guy nutzo, so she had to use sign language after that...I think if the flies on the wall had video cameras it would have been funny indeed...but there were no flies, let alone cameras!
She put that paper under my face and waited...and sure enough...I upchucked! Right on the intended target...meowmy's that is, not mine...
After that I sauntered off and that was the only barfie I did, I guess I did too much zooming around in the cool of the morning after eating...

[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ] OMC! Yet another furbaby has become a missing kitty.
This time it is Ingen who has escaped from the motel room as she and her furmily were traveling to their new home.
Right now it is cold and wet and stormy even, not pleasant to out in, scared and lost.
Please start up your purr engines...or refuel them so that we can all purr as hard as we can to help get Ingen back to her Mommy and furblings ASAP.
I am purring at full throttle...PUUUURRRRRING...

Ingen got herself *found*
I got myself a DDP!
These and other things,
Make me Happy as can be...
And so my day will be full of meezer sings,
And all my purrs will abound!

[ Leave A Comment | 11 people already have ] At the beginning of meowmy's walk with the dog, he heard her softly say...'I hope that is a squirrel.'
Then he heard her say, 'Oh no!'
There was a kitty...lying quietly and very dead in the middle of the road.
A sweet looking little kitty, grey tabby with white face, belly and paws.
No visible marks. Must have been clipped by a vehicle:(
This is at least the fourth or fifth kitty this furmily has lost in this manner. Why they have kitties is beyond me! They do not properly take care of them, they just let them stay outdoors all the time. Perhaps they should not even have kitties, or dogs any more. (They have a couple of dogs, they are basset hounds, and they stay in their back fenced yard.)
So now meowmy is just so bummed!
Can you say a pawyer fur this kitty to be having a better time at the bridge, and maybe if you have angel furblings they can show it around. Our angel furs have already helped to bring it up there, now they are busy looking for its furblings who came there earlier, then they will go back to send some angel dust to meowmy...
(There was also a big white kitty in another place last weekend...meowmy gets so sad about these things.)
On a happier note, Pawppy will be home all day, so that when meowmy goes to her work, there will still be someone here to spend lap time with and to give us chin scritches and belly rubs!
November 3rd 2011 7:04 am
[ Leave A Comment | 15 people already have ] Just a heads up to let you know that Meowmy is going out of town and leaving us 'puterless for about a week...she wants me to apologize for the lack of comments and pics/mementos that will be noticed over that period.
I hope you all will stay well and continue to have lots of kitty fun, here.
Purrs till I get back!
November 11th 2011 6:00 am
[ Leave A Comment | 21 people already have ] Hey pals! Meowmy is back, but she had been kind of busy...so now she has to take the time to type fur me...MOL!
She said she had a good time with her aunt who celebrated her 92nd birthday! Wow! Imagine if us kitties could be blessed with long lives like that!
But while she was there, our Grammy got very sick, and passed away. Pawppy had to go there, but he told meomwy not to go there...which would have been a 612 mile drive...anyways, she had been unwell for a long time, and suffering from dememtia, too. So she is released from her earthly frailties. Meowmy did come back to us a couple of days after pawppy left us alone with lots of extra food, water and litter...so we were not feeling too hard done by...but we did make a mess of litter scatter...MOL! Payback time for her abandoning us!
Anyways...now things are back to normal, sort of, but pawppy will not be back till next week some time.
Yesterday meowmy said the snowflakes coming down were wet, but still furry fluffy and huge! She said they were like little pancakes!
The roads were slippery, and she had to take a long slow time to drive back the 8 miles of country roads. The ABS kicked in at all her stopping places...
When she got in, the time was ready for us to go into zooming mode!
We had saved it up just for her, MOL!
I see that there was a feast prepared for me on my page...turkey and pie...YUM!
I shall get fat with this DDP thing!
I guess I will just have to do more zooming around!
And so I helped meowmy in the bathroom...I gave her headbonks, put my tail in her face, and tried to grab the TP when she unrolled some of that...
Of course this was accompanied by lots of Meezer speak...
Today is 11-11-11! How cool is that!
It is also the birthday of my late 'Oma'. Wow...if she was still with us today, she would have had a fun day.
Soon it will be meowmy's birthday...and speaking of birthdays, Grammy shared that day with me (Dec 26) so now that will be bittersweet fur me.
OK, I am going to go and take a nap...and stay cozy and warm...a good way to deal with all this snow I see on the ground, it is covered all of the lawn, and some of the leftover garden plants have 'hats' on.
Thanks for all the prezzies, pics and messages/comments!

So much that I am thankfur fur!
And the best thing of all for me here, are all the precious furends that me & Minko share. We share our joys and our sorrows, and we are all blessed by those things that we partake of in 'togetherness'.
So Happy Thanksgiving to all and may the next time we get together for this occasion be even more blessed by our staying together through thick and thin!

[ Leave A Comment | 10 people already have ] I had such a great day yesterday as COTD!
It was fun, too!
And busy, MOL!
Phew! Meowmy sent out at least 36 thanks notes...for gifts and pics!
That shows how much love is happening here in Catsterland! Let us hope that will always be the case!
I got loads of comments, too.
I am blushing with all the attention I got here...because at home I can be shy, though I do think that Minko is a lot shyer. as he hides or fluffs his tail a lot more than I do, MOL! I hiss more...
Well, today meowmy was home a lot more than yesterday, so it was an extension of my 'honor'...MOL!
I think that it is time for a long nap...the rain has started up again...that was the only not nice thing about being COTD yesterday...the weatherman did not know that I would have preferred a bright sunny day!
And now it is cold, rainy and there is talk of that white stuff...
Love and thanks to all!

[ Leave A Comment | 9 people already have ] Oh! There are a lot of pretty colorful and sparkly things all over the pawlace, here...and even some trees! I thought trees were supposed to be outside?
These trees have lights on them, but I nevfur see that on any trees outdoors from my window perches...
Well, I had fun trying to stick my schnooter in all the boxes and bags that were spread about yesterday. I like to do the snoopervising around here, you know...But why that made me hear a lot of that 'NO' word is beyond me, I was just being a regular kitty, not hissing or mrouwing at Minko or the dog-guy.
When meowmy opened a container that she thought had more decorations in it, she found a bunch of kitty stuff...oh ya, those had been put in there to keep them away from the evfur hunting Minko, who rips apart anything he feels has any whiff of the nip in or on it, MOL! So there was this big forgotten bag of catnip! Hooray!
We both got a big pile to eat, roll in and go beserk with, MOL! That kept us away from the stuff meowmy was doing. I think she is on to something, that is to say...when you want to keep the kitties away, give them a big nip fix!
The last couple of days there have been no sunny puddles for basking in, it has been wet and dank all weekend. Well, at least it is not snowing, and the ice and snow from the past week is all but gone! It all looks green out there again...'I'm dreaming of a white Christmas'...hmmm...and what about the 'dashing through the snow'?
Ah, we can't have it all, I suppose!
I hope all of our furends are enjoying getting their dens decorated for this spawsial time of year!

[ Leave A Comment | 13 people already have ] Oh my Catness!
When I asked & mewed at meowmy to go see what was going on today in Catsterland, I saw that I was a DDP! What fun! (Except that meowmy has to go to work, soon...Boo-hiss...)
Well yesterday the sun finally decided to show forth its bright beams and there were sun puddles to enjoy, if only fur a short while! Ahhh!
Today it is hiding again, but being as I am a DDP, I will just ignore that...
I started out today by winding around and around meowmy's legs while she was in the bathroom...then I decided to play like a silly kitten, and I went under the bath-mat and played hide and seek under there for a while, I even bit the edge of the mat a few times to show it who the boss was, MOL!
So far the only incidents with our trees and ornaments have been when meowmy herself knocked them over by mistake! Who needs a kitty to do mischief, when your peeps can do it themselves?? MOL!
Thanks for all the well wishes and gifties that you have sent my way. I love you all!
I will try and convince meowmy to stop by here when she comes home from work, around midnight ET...

[ Leave A Comment | 9 people already have ] Hello fellow kitties!
Since I live in the eastern time zone and since meowmy is up furry late...It is now my seventh meowday!
Happy Birthday to me!
And since it is still Dec 25th in Catster time...Merry Christmas to all of you!
And today is also Boxing Day in some countries, namely those with British heritage. Since Meowmy comes from Canada , she is furry familiar with that day.
She recalls that it is a day that started to get called that because the more well off peeps in Britain would put boxes together with food and goodies, then leave them on the doorsteps of those less well off. So they would get their Christmas in a box, a day late.
Boxing day to me means bopping the dog-guy as necessary, MOL!
Boxing day also means getting into any leftover and empty boxes from the packing that all the gifts came in the day before! The best idea, I think!
My unfurbros said it was the day that peeps put all their unwanted gifts in a box, and gave them away to any unsuspecting peeps, Hmmm...MOL!
Christmas for this furmily was rather quiet, since meowmy had to go to her job...but she enjoyed seeing all the extra visitors and greeting all the residents with a Merry Christmas!
There was even a retired symphony violinist there and she walked around to all the rooms and played carols for the residents. That was nice of her to give of her time that way. She is there often making nice music for the peeps who live there. So somehow she is not really retired at all!
We had fun as kitties romping around in the wrappings and bags. We got new mousie toys and we spent time trying to de-tail them...and one is already missing!
And then there was a big box...which of course we got to take over as a temporary residence...furry appawpriate fur Boxing Day!

Thanks for all that lovely looking mistletoe!
There are a lot of smoochies going on here in Catsterland...
Thanks for all the purrsents that were sent to me fur my birthday.
Purrsents, comments and pics/mementos!
Wow, you kitties are all so pawsome and thoughtfur!
Sorry that my catretary has been rather lax in sending out thanks, hence this entry! MOL!!
January 5th 2012 8:54 am
[ Leave A Comment | 8 people already have ] I had a heap of fun last night!
Meowmy got out the boxes to put away all the Christmas decorations.
Some of those boxes are rather long and narrow, and are like tunnels when the ends are open...so I snuck into one. Even Minko didn't know I was in there, so when he decided to 'do the tunnel' he got a swat from my smacky paw, MOL! Then I zoomed out of there and we had a good chase all over! It was FUN!
Now it looks a bit sparse here...but I am sure I can find something to do...if not I shall go and enjoy a nap in a sunpuddle since it is so beautifurly shining today!
January 11th 2012 6:52 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 13 people already have ] Hooray! I got a parcel in the mail today!
I could smell other kitties on it...and yup, I was right!
It came from River's shop...Happy River Dances Catnip Company.
But actually it came from Harley who had a wee contest going a while ago.
Thanks so much!
Inside this package was a fun catnip cigar.
Ooooh! The aroma!
Suddenly there was another paw and a schnooter in my way...Minko!
He is a nip maniac! He stole that catnip cigar right out from under my paws! Sheesh, I didn't get to do more than have a whiff...
Well after that, he got all spaced and nutzo. Then he started to bite the envelope that it came in...so meowmy put the cigar in front of me, but I was not going to be playing with it now...there was Minko slobber all over it! YUCK!
Then dog-guy came to see/sniff at what we found so fun...I think he thought he was missing out on edibles...but even he tossed his nose at it...too much Minko slobber for him, too. He proceeded to rip the envelope apart...
How on earth is meowmy going to get a pic of me with that cigar if I don't even get a chance?
Well here is a link to the pics that meomy did get...eventually! MOL! Minko is truly all into *my* nip...
Pipo and Minko with the gift Cigar from Harley's 'contest'.
Oh, well...I did get to have a snooze in dog-guy's new bed...MOL! Payback!
We have been having the most glorious weather with bright sun, and even springlike temps...today it was 50F.
Well, this will end overnight, and the rains will start, and then the snow will come, too, (we are under another winter storm watch)...but meowmy said that at least the nice weather was on her days off, Yeah!
Purrs to all, and now I shall go and see if the catnip cigar is dried off...
January 17th 2012 5:41 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 6 people already have ] Minko & I were in a tizzy and a partial panic!
Meowmy got out that noisy thing she calls a cleaning machine, though we call it an evil sucking machine.
Well she did not use her regular pattern of work so we were catfused fur sure...we didn't know where to run and hide. Bad meowmy!
Eventually, Minko found a hidey hole, but I decided to watch the goings on from the top of our organ, which stands quite high, and the top has a windshield on it that is kind of protective, (the music holder).
So then meowmy had that noisy thing in front of where I was...she looked up and saw me..and OMC she brought the wand over to where I was trying to look invisible, MOL! She scratched my chin,then she brought up that wand...and rubbed it over my back. Ooooh! Aaahhhh!
It actually felt good, like getting brushed, I stood there and had my tail up, and did not try to run away! I even turned to let her 'do' the other side!
Then I let her do my belly too...and I got some more chin scritches...and then she went off to do some more floor work...
I shall have to mew at Minko that I was so furry brave and now I may even come for another session the next time that noisy thing comes out of its hiding pawlace! He really doesn't know what he is missing!
Maybe there should be a poll to see how many kitties like to be groomed in this manner...Simba and Toki our angel furblings both enjoyed it a lot!
January 25th 2012 9:08 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ] Meowmy was driving past a home today and her van was still not warmed up...but what she saw helped her feel furry warm inside!
That home houses 2 bachelors, some old beat up vehicles, a huge chocolate lab named Asa, and a tortoiseshell kitty whose name she has nevfur discovered.
She does not like to have dog-guy get too close if she is outside when they go past on their daily stroll...even though her lab brofur is a big goofus...whatevfur!
Well she saw one of the men bending over something as she drove past. Being as this home is on a busy road, she thought the worst...but no...the man was petting his kitty, and she was rolling on her back, begging for belly rubs. So neat to see this dude loving on his kitty!
It truly warmed meowmy's heart!
(She will have to try and remember to ask what the kitties name is next time she sees the man on her strolls...)
January 31st 2012 7:12 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 13 people already have ] Meowmy's ouchie on her wrist is still furry bad. It is hot(!), swollen and she can hardly even pick up a mug.
The xrays that were done do not indicate any break...so why this agony still after 2 weeks? I hear meowmy 'yelp' a lot lately, she seems to forget that she isn't a pup, but our meowmy!
Well she went to see a specialist today, and he feels she is having a reactive inflammation to the original soft tissue injury.
So he said she needs 4 weeks of physiotherapy, and to stay off of work until 6 weeks have past. So that will be almost 2 months before she can go back if she figures in the time she already missed...the doc said she could go back if she would only do work with her left hand...yes, that will be cute, work as a one handed nurse's assistant! Um...not going to happen...so she let the office peeps know this, and she will bring her paper there tomorrow...and set up the PT...in the meantime she hopes she can get by without that paycheck she had been enjoying...
And we kitties will keep her amused here, so she won't get too bored...and you know she only needs one hand to pet us or scritch us under our chins...MOL!
Well, if that pesky dog that caused this to happen (She was trying to catch the neighbors dog that had gotten loose...) had done this today, meowmy would only have gotten a muddy mess, or no fall at all, because it is quite mild here, about 50F. All the 6 or so inches we got the other day is about gone!
What a not winter we are having...

OMC! The day of love!
The day of hearts!
Hearts look like this just in case you need to know;♥
Anyways February 14 is spawsial to me because it is also my Gotcha Day!
Meowmy had so much love she gave it to me...and not only that there was enough love to spread over to Minko, too, who shares the same Gotcha Day.
We are brofurs, with the same Gotcha Day, and we even have our meow-days close together! Now if that isn't love then I don't know what is!
Simba from the KCK club made me a pic to get the catabrations started; Thanks Simba!
My Gotcha Day Is Coming Up
Well, I wish all of you a Happy Valentine's Day, and if you have a Gotcha Day then, too, well, I wish you many more catabrations of that day, also!

[ Leave A Comment | 11 people already have ] OOH la la! I have me a Valentine! A purrty gal kitty. I shall have to dream up how to please her fancy style before the big day...but she is kind of a secret lady, so I won't divulge who she is, at least not if she does't say I should, MOL!
Just too bad that at this moment I can't even make her a picture to catabrate our spawsial day together!
Oh, well, its the togetherness that is way more important anyways...MOL!
February 12th 2012 8:07 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 13 people already have ] Here I go again, only this time I can mew my miaows and purrs about my Valentine to Catsterland at large!
The lovely PENELOPE is mine!
All Mine! MOL! Isn't she a purrty kitty?
I asked meowmy to make a pic of the two of us, to catabrate the occasion:
Penelope & Pipo
I have showered her with gifts and fun things.
I can hardly wait for Valentine's Day to get here!
It was furry timely that pawppy was able to find an old office computer that he could bring to our den for meowmy to use, and it allowed her to put the plugins on for making the kimis, Hooray!
Well, now I have to go and take a long nap to stay handsome for my Penny!
February 14th 2012 9:21 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] I purred very softly,
And said 'Come to me',
I mewed oh so sweetly,
To my Penelope!
Love Day is here;
The heart is its sign.
You have my heart,
My sweet Valentine!
So this is the day that I have waited for, so I sent her some bubbly and a pretty rose, to show her how I feel, on this day we know as Valentine's Day!
Isn't having one so much fun!?
And we are two peas...hey meowmy we are not edibles...we are 2 pees...no meowmy that goes in those box things...we are two P's...MOL! P for Pipo and P for Penelope!
That name just rolls off my tongue like poetry!
Happy Valentine's Day...To Penny and to Catsterland at large!
February 15th 2012 8:50 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 6 people already have ] Well, yesterday was my Gotcha day, and today I thought it would be fun to share that story with my furends.
I was kind of too busy yesterday with all the Valentine's Day and Gotcha Day things going on around here...
A long time ago, 7 years, actually...I was in a den where there were a whole bunch of kitties, and all of them were Meezers, like me.
My kitty daddy was there, and several kitty aunts, uncles and cousins as well as my kitty mom. I no longer remember any of them, but now I do have another kitty brofur...by another mom, MOL!
Anyways, my meowmy was sad, because she and pawppy had just lost Toki, at the age that I am now, 7...Yikes!...well, he got furry sick, but I am healthy so I am not worried...
So they had Suki, who was also 7 or 8 years old. She was lonely, too, and did not get along with dog-guy, who by then was about 4.
Meowmy looked in the newspaper,and there were two ads for meezer kitties...so off she went. My birth home was closer so she went there first, by herself.
And when she got to that home, she had a hard time deciding which kitten was going to be coming home with her, MOL!
I just crawled into her lap...and purred...and she was smitten!
And then I went home to be her Pipo, named after a cat that one of her aunts had had years in the past, who was also a meezer like me!
After school that day, meowmy took one of my unfurbros and went to see the other kittens she had seen advertised...and that story is Minko's, you can read it in his diary...
Anyways, me being me...when that kitten came in the door, I knew I was not going to be having all the attention to myself here, so I hissed at him, MOL! And I hissed at him when he looked at my toys,and my food dish...and even at such a baby age, we were not too keen on each other..but it didn't take furry long, and we missed the littermates we had been with, so we made up our minds to call a truce...when we were allowed to be together according to the vets instructions...and we started to curl up together...and show brotherly affection to each other...and I even decided to make it my mission to protect this brofur of mine from dog-guy...and I still do! I have the fastest smacky paw meowmy has evfur seen! MOL!
And Suki...she was not happy with either of us!And she gave meowmy the stink eye, for a long time after that...but eventually she let us get near her, and we would make a kitty pileup...but meowmy has no pics of that...bummer!
Suki got sick when she was 10, and her seizures scared us a lot, so even though we knew meowmy was sad when she had to go to the RB, somehow we didn't seem to miss her all that much, likely because of the stronger bond we had with eachother...Meowmy missed her a whole lot more than we did...and still does, she was such a diva/princess/drama queen, MOL!
So there you have it!
February 17th 2012 11:34 am
[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ] Well, just when we thought our 'puter troubles were over, meowmy asked pawppy how she could post new pics on here using this borrowed one we've been managing with...he said that it doesn't have enough memory to store all that stuff, and we can't just put in a CD or an SD card and add them directly from those or meowmy's camera...so I guess what that means is no 'new' pics will be posted, and we will have to recycle old ones...oh well at least we have some! MOL!
So bear with us for the time being...
Hee-hee...they will be new for a lot of my newer furends, though so it isn't the end of the world...
AND...I won't have to endure picture sessions for now!
OK...Off to hunt for the Mardi Gras pics...
February 18th 2012 10:24 am
[ Leave A Comment | 12 people already have ] Sometimes I furget that I am supposed to be a dignified gentleman kitty...and I get into zoom mode!
I zoom around the whole space that is the living room, dining room, stairs and kitchen...but when I get to the kitchen, well, that floor gives a spawsial zing to my zoom!
Meowmy says that the way I zoom is more like a bunch of heavy feet booming on the floor...sheesh, meowmy I am not a twinkle-toes?
When I calm down, if pawppy is home I will go and pay him my respects...by trying to climb on his shoulders...to head bonk him from up close.
The other night I did just that, and then I wanted to get back onto the floor...but the usual way was blocked by that evfur present dog-guy...UGH!
Anyfurs, I went the other way, and tried to get on the little shelf on the hutch of the china cabinet, which is beside where pawppy sits...but...as I put my paws on the pile of books and other papers there, the whole thing decided to be an avalanche, with me on the top..and Boom! Down I went! PFFT! I just stalked off with my tail up in the air...I meant to do that, you know...
I think I needed a long nap after that day of Zoomba-Boomies!
February 22nd 2012 8:27 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 10 people already have ] Well, now that Mardi Gras and all that fun stuff is over, its time to go green...even though in this den we are supposed to Go Blue!(Because my unfurbro's go to the University of Michigan)
Well, pawppy still has not been able to do anything with the nonfunctional confuser so meowmy has had to retrieve some old pics and recyle them...again!
Maybe by Easter we will be up and running, but meowmy does not want to make promises...
Oh well...at least there are pics to post, even if a lot of you have already seen them...
I hope you all enjoyed Mardi Gras.
Now it is Lent, and that means in six weeks it will be Easter!
Time does fly, or hop I guess if you are an Easter Bunny!

[ Leave A Comment | 11 people already have ] Meowmy said she has a dream...and I was the star! MOL! She dreamt that she looked for me in my fave hidey hole, and then she saw me smacky paw a big mouse that ran past us...OMC! She sure hopes this dream does not come true! MOL!
Then tonight she had to fetch me out of that same hidey hole...in real life...because she needed to brush my teeth...but since there was no mouse, I wasn't coming out! Nope! But I fell for the feathers rustling beside that hidey hole...sigh...
March 4th 2012 9:36 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 9 people already have ] Hey, Meowmy!
Is it time for me to have 'My Turn' now?? Minko was a DDP, and dog-guy was a DDP, two days in a row(!), so now its my turn right?!
Otherwise I will have to get out my wet paw reminder tool...
Oh, did you furget, meowmy!?
I like to use that to help my statements reach home...
Fur those of you who may not be in the know...I mostly only drink water by dipping my delicate be-stockinged paw in the water bowl, and then licking off the moisture.
Rarely do I drink in a 'normal' way.
So when I need to say something and drive it home, I will take my still wet paw and place it on meowmy's bare skin...well, she jumps and is startled by how that feels, so I miaow back to her what I need to tell her...and in this case...'is it my turn?'
And now if I wake up tomorrow and there is no name of me I will be wetting the paw tool some more, i guess...sigh...
March 7th 2012 8:48 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 9 people already have ] Yes, The March lion is roaring...he got annoyed yesterday, and today he is really venting his anger...and he even threw over meowmy's trash bin outside, and it was not empty!
Very windy it is here, today you can actually go outside and hear the wind roaring through the trees.
Don't know why this lion is so annoyed, but he brought with him furry warm weather fur this time of the year in this region...we were in the mid 60'sF today!
When meowmy took dog-guy out of my hair fur his stroll, she said she could feel grit hitting her face, driven by that lion's strong breath!
And what is up with the sun dude!
He spewed a flare that will hit the earth sometime tomorrow, and the science dudes say we will have a solar storm...so the lion and the sun-dude are busy wreaking their havoc upon us...good thing I am a kitty, safe inside my den, cozy and comfy and oblivious to all of this, MOL!!
Meowmy saw her first Robin today, and yesterday she saw some Sandhill Cranes.
And she could hear the red-winged blackbirds...so yet another sign of spring...and the snow drops have popped out of the earth and are in full bloom...yesterday meowmy didn't even see them...go figure!
Enjoy the spring!
I am hoping fur some nice sun-puddles to bask in!
March 13th 2012 8:35 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ] Meowmy says she has been making progress...and the doc thought so too, so she is going to be going back to her job on the 15th.
She still has some issues with pain and decreased function, but it is good enough to do her work. Hooray!...at least fur her, MOL! Now we will have to spend more time by ourselves...well in the evenings when she is at work, Pawppy will let us sit in his lap, so that isn't too bad, MOL!
Spring has gotten a good start here over the past couple of days, and more warm days to come. We had the windows open, that felt good, and we could sniff the breezes wafting by!
And sit in warm sun puddles, too.
The weeds in the back part of our yard have woken up, too, and meowmy is going to be doing a lot of work over the next while to get rid of them...or else they will take over!
We also saw that she bought some Catnip seeds...so maybe later this summer we will have some furry fresh nip of our own!
March 14th 2012 6:26 am
[ Leave A Comment | 9 people already have ] Yeah!
I am a DDP today!
Pawppy looked at the diary section after meowmy showed it to him and he said...'Pipo, you are world famous today!' MOL!
So do I need to strut and primp because I am now a furmouse kitty?
Um...I guess not, because today meowmy is going to be out doing errands and junk befur she goes back to her work tomorrow...well it WAS a fun thought!
At least there are nice sunpuddles to enjoy...
March 16th 2012 5:52 am
[ Leave A Comment | 13 people already have ] I think the Diary Gal has gone on vacation...when we go to diary central, all the honorees are the same...Wed, Thurs and today...so I am DDP (sort of) on all these days...I wonder how long that will stay like that?? MOL!
We here think it has something to do with the new design, in other words a flea!
Oh well, not too many other things that we have noticed!
And...I do not mind being furmouse all these days, MOL!
We hope evfurry one of our Pals that live near the paths of those 7 tornadoes that hit further east from us are OK.
It was beautiful weather here all day and evening!!
The worst of the those that happened was near the city of Ann Arbor. Meowmy was worried about out unfurbros who go to the U of M, but they are all fine, too. Praise the Lord.
Dexter where the worst one was is a huge mess. Thankfully no peeps were hurt.
We know one furmily near that area, so we will Pmail them and find out if they are unscathed.
What scary stuff.
Meowmy has been awfully tied up with this and that, so eventually I will get her to do her catretarial duties fur me and send out my thanks, to all who sent me gifts...and I need to crack my whip of a tail and get her to put the pic/mementos on my page, too. Sheesh!
March 21st 2012 7:29 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 13 people already have ] Buzzing and humming...loud ones!
Meowmy went outside this evening to put away the trash, and she heard this noticeable humming/buzzing sound.
She looked around to find out who was running any motors...No-one.
Then she looked up.
OMC! Our weeping cherry tree!
This tree is in full blossom right now, having only been covered in buds earlier today! It went Poof! It is beautiful, the blossoms are a faint pink, and look quite delicate.
This is our Weeping Cherry tree, in 2010
Nevfur in the 25 years of her married life here, has meowmy evfur seen this tree blossom so early! It is summer here, 86F today, and more warm weather in the forecast.Spring has been passed by...I do hope the farmers do not lose their crops if we get any more hard frosts, which could still happen until the end of May, another two months!
Closeup of some of the branches(2010)
Anyways this tree was abuzz with hundreds of bees...feasting, I guess!
Meowmy has seen bees swarming, but these ones were just enjoying the flowers and their nectar.
It was amazing!
God's creation is so marvelous, and always there are things to amaze and delight the eye!

[ Leave A Comment | 12 people already have ] OMC! I am in trouble now!
I am in Meowmy's stink eye range too...
She got up to make some snack and while she was away from the desk...I sat on the laptop. Afterall, it was all alone and since its called a laptop,I had to help it live up to its name!
Well, when meowmy saw me on there she groaned...you probably heard it in your den it was so loud! She saw the background...and then it too went all black...I had pawed the off button, MOL!
Meowmy, don't you know that you can only pay me full attention if the computer is OFF?!?
Well now I am in her stink eye...and I have to leave fur a while till she gets back from her work...then I know she will have furgiven me!

[ Leave A Comment | 9 people already have ] Wow! Meowmy has been neglecting our pages, at least the diary writing part.
Well, not much to mew about...
I guess that is not a bad thing, just boring...MOL!
I do love to follow pawppy around like a shadow, and as soon as he sits down I start pawing at him or climbing on his back for some attention, or I get on his lap if he is in the recliner. Of all the kitties my pawrents have had, I am the most attached to pawppy!
I paw at meowmy when I want her to play the laser light game, or need a nip fix, but pawppy is my belly rubbing buddy, MOL!
And meowmy is giggling because I do love her, and she brought me to this den, but pawppy is all MINE! Sometimes I do have to share him with Minko...
Oh, meowmy feeds me, tee-hee...thanks meowmy! She takes me to the vet dude, too...and gets me my toys, etc...so I have to say, that I do NEED both my pawrents!
So to Meowmy:
Happy Mother's Day!
Meowmy will be going on a mini vacation furry soon, so I will be offline fur a few days. Here is a link to our WBS page to read all the details:

[ Leave A Comment | 10 people already have ] Around and around! That's what I was doing the other evening. I was up on the top of the organ, and going around the lamp that is on there. Meowmy thought I was stalking a bug, because I would stop, look intently and then go around and around, over and over, like I was trying to catch something.
Then I heard a huge MOL from meowmy!
She suddenly realized that I was stalking and chasing the end of my tail, around and around the lamp-stand, MOL! MOL!
Who needs to go out to be entertained when there are kitties in the home!
We are more fun and the live show is just priceless!
Meowmy wonders how I came up with that routine of comedy, but I shall not be telling her my secrets...
June 23rd 2012 8:13 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 8 people already have ] Oh, kitties, what fun it is to watch those evfur purrsent bugs...and the burds that ilk to eat them., MOL!
I didn't know where to begin this morning when meowmy opened the windows before the heat of the day got started. So I looked from left to right snd back and forth, lashing my tail like a pendulum...in opposite motion to my head, MOL!
And from one window to the next...I couldn't make up my mind which one had the best view, and the best watchable bugs.
I saw blueburds and Kingburds and robins vying for their breakfasts, and noms fur their nestlings, I imagine.
Haven't seen any activity of baby burds in my new robin's nest...maybe in a week or so. Now that should be fun!
Well, it sure was more fun than when there was company here earlier this week...meowmy's sister came, and I thought fur sure my smackey paw would get some exercise, but, no, she did not bring along her black-furred canine creature. Thank Cat!
I did have some fun, though exploring her nest before she got into it, but I was not allowed to get near there when she was actually in it. Sheesh! The comforts that I was denied, MOL!
Well, summer is here, and so I wish you all a happy time of your own buggy-burd watching!

Meowmy got an e-mail from TeddyBearz and Milo's mom...and she told us that I was FURMOUSE!!
I was sitting there in my Canada Bandana as the rep from Catster, wishing all our fellow Canadians a Happy Canada Day!
Now that just makes our day here that much more festive and fun!
But...since we do not normally 'do' FB, I was glad that we were notified about it...otherwise we would nevfur have even known!
Luke & Tully and Beepers and Ashlynne and TeddyBearz pawrents commented under that pic, too! So did Milo & Mallee's mom! Thank you!
I think that others may have too, sorry if I missed you.
Here are some screenshots of my pic on FB, and another one of all the comments...sorry they turned out so small...
Pipo on Facebook
Here are the coments:
Pipo on Facebook...The Comments
The other day, my dog-guy had his pic there in the Dogster FB pawlace.
Hmmm, that leaves Minko. I wonder what he will be featured for, MOL!!
Well, it is about midnight here, so I can still say it:
Happy Canada Day!!
And now I am going to let my catretary go off to her bed...
Here are the comments in a C/P version so that they are easier to be read:

[ Leave A Comment | 12 people already have ] Today meowmy put some towels in the bottom of a couple of carriers...to make them comfy for a trip she said...and she didn't say it, but to soak up accidents like what Minko did last year on his trip in the carrier...MOL!
Anyways we were in seperate carriers stacked and held safely with a seatbelt...and we could see meowmy, too.
But still we did a lot of singing, to help make the trip go faster, MOL!
We sang like this:
I want out now!
I hear you!
Oh, I see a cow!
I don't care for the view!
I'm sticking my paw out, now!
Well, I want out too!
And there were more verses, but we won't bother you with them, besides most of you know them all anyways, MOL!
We were like a chorus, first Minko then I mewed our displeasure...
And then when the swaying of the van stopped meowmy picked up those carriers and took Minko & I into that V-E-T pawlace...Oh-oh!
Well, they all oohed and cooed at me, and said things like, Oh, look at those blue eyes, and what a handsome kitty, and stuff like that...but all I wanted to hear was you can go home now...
That V-E-T lady couldn't get me out of the carrier, meowmy turn ed it upside down, and pulled me out, but still I managed to hang on to the edge of the carrier with my paws and claws, MOL! Make them work fur their money...MOL!
I had to sit on a cold little square thing, which said that I weigh 2 ounces less than last year, so meowmy was happy with that, because sometimes she thinks I am rather portly...fooled ya, meowmy!
Then V-E-T lady poked and prodded me and opened my jaws...hey I know my teeth are in there, be carefur!
She said, you are a handsome and healthy kitty! Thanks and now let me go back into my safe spot in the carrier...hey! She poked me...with 2 jabs! The nerve!...Then she let me hide, phew!
And once I was home again, I went behind the couch, so no one could nab me again!

[ Leave A Comment | 16 people already have ] The day that we had to go to that pawlace with the big scary fish in it...meowmy stole some pooh out of our boxes...since it wasn't buried she assumes it was mine, but she isn't evfur going to find that secret out from me, MOL! I have no idea why peeps can be so needy that they feel the desire to steal that stuff...well, evfurry day, I fill up the boxes and each day I have to do it all ovfur gain, because its always empty!
At any rate, not only did meowmy steal it on that fateful day, she put it in a baggie took it through our door, and showed it to the peeps in the fish-tank pawlace...and they seemed evfur so glad to see it...OMC! They even took hold of that baggie with seeming gratitude!
Well, anyways, meowmy got a phone call about that poopy baggie...and they said there was nothing in it. OK, so now you know that meowmy was out of her mind stealing my poopies and then getting that kind of a report about it...
And now she says that lately she is finding puddles on the floor, right in front of one of our boxes...and at the same time that she gets those, the whole front of that box will be all wet, too...oh Pee!
One of us, and we are keeping that a secret until the culprit should evfur get busted...seems to be a bit lax in going all the way inside said box...to pee..and so the wrong end is still out, and well, you all know what happens next...and yes it does smell, and we love watching meowmy get all annoyed so that she has to carefurly pick up that litter catcher mat, and take it outside to get it hosed off, MOL! Imagine all the work we would get meowmy as our hired help to do if we only had a towel or carpet there...eeuuwww!

[ Leave A Comment | 14 people already have ] It was a spawsial day of celebration at my den today...it was the Silver Anniversary of Meowmy & Pawppy!
That's a long time!!
Meowmy got out a basket that she used on her wedding day to pass treats out to the guests...and I fit right in, but of course she didn't pass me to anyone but pawppy...Minko crawled in with me, too, and that wasn't too bad, but there was no way I was going to allow a furmily furtrait with dog-guy...MOL!...but meowmy did try, MOL! Not a good idea!!
There are silver shimmers, tonight! To help the pawtents catabrate better!

[ Leave A Comment | 10 people already have ] Sheesh!
Yesterday, I was a DDP,and meowmy didn't even make me an entry...something about chores and getting herself off to work...I guess she thinks work is more important than me and my furblings...so thart we had to wait until pawppy got back from his job...oh well...
I guess better late than nevfur, MOL!
Thanks for all the comments, P-mails and pic-mementos and prezzies, that were sent to me with all of your love and purrs!
Catster sure still has loads of that, thank catness!
Well we got a teeny bit of rain overnight, but the windows will still have to remain shut, as it is way too hot to have them open...sigh...
Now I have some other junk to worry about...I heard the peeps talking about new kitchen and bathroom...why?? I like the old junky ones because meowmy only gets bent out of shape if I eat stuff on the counters, but I can go into those rooms...esp I like to go into the bathroom when the peeps are there, because they can't shut that old door too well...and how will I get to do that with a new one...and don't fixing projects like these, mean that there will be strange peeps with lots of scary noise and machines in my den?? OMC, I am spooked already...I remember the last time when there were a bunch of dudes banging around in here, doing all of the windows and outside doors...meowmy locked me away; that was even worse than the noises, cause I couldn't see where those noises were coning from...and then I had to go and sniff all the new stuff, cause I didn't get to put my seal of appurrval on anything before they were installed...I somehow think this may be worse, cause of the kitchen gets ripped out, then where will my noms come from? Oi-Bey!!

[ Leave A Comment | 10 people already have ] Rats! I got trapped by my own need fur those lovely sun puddles.
While I was relaxing, meowmy came up to me...petted me...(trickery and bribery combined), and then she opened my mouth but not to check my teeth, but to stick chunks of my heartworm chew in there...like medicine...I hate those things...why doesn't she just let Minko have it, he LOVES them, MOL!
But I was a good kitty boy and obediently swallowed those bits and pieces...cause I knew that she would then let me go back to my sunbathing!

MOL! My inbox was flooded this morning!It was to let me know that I am a DDP today...so much fun to be in that line up once in a while.And there were lots of messages about P-mails, and prezzies! Thanks!!
Meowmy was trying to think of something clever to use DDP as an acronym...but she only has air in her head she said...well, if its fresh air that's good, right?! So that explains the title up above: Duh-Doh-PIPO!!
We got a good rain last week, and now all looks green again, albeit shaggy...sigh...now there is work to do out there again!
We cooled down a lot, too, now the pawrents are using a blanket at night with open windows! And early in the morning the ground level windows are open, too, until it gets too warm...oh, how I love that time! Not only can I see the bugs and birds and small critters, I can hear them, esp the birdies, there are all kinds of them here. Once on a fall day meowmy counted 14 species all in the same bush!!
In the evening when it cools down once more, meowmy opens the windows again, then I can hear all the frogs down by the pond...
Last night I could hear the neighbor's little boy having a temper tantrum, he didn't want to go to bed I think, MOL! He is a cute rascal, chubby and with a swath of the blackest hair, even darker than my stockings...but he has big brown eyes, MOL! He will be handsome like his brofurs and pawppy when he grows up, I am sure! of course he has purrty sisfurs too! And a tall, tall mommy!(The Daddy is from Bolivia, the Mommy is from the US...their kids look like one or the other, amazing!) Soon that household will quiet down when school starts up again...but then I won't have much to see out of my big window by the condo...often I get to watch their silly-billy-goat! Now there is a rascal if there evfur was one!
Well, meowmy says she has some not-kitty things to do, so I will make her come back here later...You all have a fine day, purring, mewing and kneading...and of course cat-napping!!
August 21st 2012 8:26 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] Meowmy has been and will be furry busy with non Catster things for the next couple of weeks,and then again even more so in October...but she will still be around, now and then as time permits...I sure hope she will be able to help me & Minko make those kimi-pics for deserving furs...
Well, I have gotten multiple tags to play the who am I really game, and I am not going to try to tag any other furs, if you wish to play,and have read this, you may do it voluntarily; phew, that was a big word, MOL!
"Who are you really?"
1) Tell me your funny Christmas story.
Well, meowmy learned from purrevious kitties that lived here what not to do...MOL! So she thought she had me figured out...but she nevfur really has, MOL! She doesn't put up any big trees anymore, no breakable ornaments, no tinsel or similar garlands, no lights with thin wires...So she put up a table tree, 24 inches high, fiber-optic lights...and put 3 or 4 beaded garlands all around it, swirled, from top to bottom.
Later on, sure enough the tree was on the floor, the garland was all tangled up and I was innocent, right??!
2) Where's your favorite hiding place when playing hide and go seek?
Under the couch, behind it, or in our cat-food box, which is an enclosed area to keep dog-guy from stealing our noms. When I was a kitten, and tiny, I could hide under the drawers of pawppy's desk.
3) What did you dream of being as a young kit?
...drum roll...SUPER CAT...!!
I had to purrtect my wee furbling from the dreaded dog-guy...and of course that dream has come true, because I still do this furry well...MOL!
4) What's your favorite hobby? Anything goes.
Laying in sunpuddles, chewing the plastic around water bottles, sun puddles, sleeping, sunpuddles, laser light chasing, and did I mention sun puddles??
5) Whats your one "bad habit" that you love and your Mom hates?
Chewing plastic...the firm kind that surrounds water bottles is the best, but grocery bags will do, and the bags that hold dog-guy's treats...meowmy worries that I might swallow a piece; not the treats, but a piece of plastic...
6) If you could go anywhere in the world where would you go?
The local sun puddle emporium!
7) What is your guilty pleasure? Food, skirts and suits or cars? What?
Laying on the tablecloth, you guessed it, in a sun puddle!
Smackypawing the dog guy fur no reason at all...
Oh and being the real boss...I am polite and let Minko think he is the boss...um...I don't think so!
8) What is your favorite make believe monster? And yes girls, unicorns and fairies are included. Post a pic of this mysterious beast.
Why I do not think I really have one at all! I am boring right?? MOL!
I do not think there is a catnip fairy...
9) What is the one dreaded thing you have to do at home? Babysitting, taking baths, entertaining guests....what is your dread?
Getting tricked into coming into the bathroom when meowmy has gotten a toothbrush ready, or those nasty heartworm chews...HISS!
Being nice to dog-guy, sheesh, I am a kitty cat, remember?!
10) I’m not so sure if Zach and Zoe are going to have coed ships this year or not, but in any case, which ship would you want to be on: Zach’s, or Zoe’s?
I am a mancat, sand belong to that group...so I suppose the ship with Zach's name on it...but on the other hand, meowmy tells me about those lady-cats who like to swoon and croon ovfur me, so purrhaps the Zoe-ship would be fun!When all the gal cats have swooned and fainted, I will be the boss!! MOL!
So now I have bared my catness and catinesses to all of you out there, in Catsterland, MOL!!

And so are the wires that unfurbro had to keep track of to keep them out of my jaws...and also that lovely shrink wrap around some of his junk...
Well, at least the paths where I like to chase my laser light toy are clear now, and I can run through the den unhindered.
And the living room will be all ours again!

[ Leave A Comment | 10 people already have ] That is a lot of meezer yowling up there in my title. Pawppy said I did that all last evening when meowmy was gone to work, and I was wanting pawppy to pay me more attention than he was, MOL!
I didn't stop though when meowmy finally did get home...but I did even more! MOL! I wanted her to know that pawppy had been ignoring me...and why doesn't he evfur give me any nip or play laser light with me...Hrumphffffftttt!
Well, today he and she made it up, and I even got lap time!
And though it was a mostly cloudy and rainy day, the sun did come out a few times to give us some nice warm sunpuddles, too.
Right now I am stalking a teeny bug, I put my paw on it, then jump up, cause it tickles my paw pads.
Well all in all, today I am a much quieter and happier kitty.
Except when dog-guy came careening into my space - HISS! Smacky paw time!

How fun to be a DDP, today! That makes 3 out of four diaries of meowmy's furs have been a DDP this week...dog guy, then Minko, then me...wonder if the WBS diary will get one, MOL! Nah, that would be asking too much...tee-hee!
Thanks fur all those prezzies and pics, and P-mails!
Me & Minko had fun trying to snag a silly fly that came in here, but we didn't go after the stinky bug...that flew into meowmy's hair...EEEK! Pee-eeuw!
Pawppy is limping more, because he hurts more since he had to stop some of his meds for several days befur his upcoming surgery. I had a try out of that chair that Minko attacked the other night, now there is a fleecy blanket on it...even dog guy had a try, MOL!
Well, I have to let meowmy get into her nest fur the night...so good night to all and to all a good night!

[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ] Mewomy is quietly working at her confuser, I am in a nest beside her, and meowmy thinks Minko was in the nest beside me...she really isn't sure...all of a sudden, there was ME under dog-guy, and he was growling...and Minko was in my nest, too...and I was a hissing and spitting, and clawing my way out from under that naughty dog-guy. Meowmy has absolutely NO idea what happened, except purrhaps that dog-guy was beside Minko in that nest, and I tried to move away, and that movement disturbed the sleeping pup...Hummppfff! Who does he think he is, anyways? A kitty has to move and stretch now and then...well at any rate other than ruffled furs and tempers no harm became any of us...excepting purrhaps, meowmy, who about had a heart attack! MOL! I guess we livened up her evening!
Maybe this is a post stress reaction on our part, as there is noise going on outside...there are a lot of trucks and peeps working on building a sidewalk, steps and driveway fur the peeps here...too much noise that went on fur hours and will go on fur days...sigh...well, at least they are not coming inside...meowmy said she couldn't find Minko when she got home this afternoon, and when he was finally in view he spooked again when she opened the door to the back porch...I think he thought one of those strange men was coming in, Oh NO!
Have a nice quiet and peaceful evening!!

[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ] Minko got up on the organ bench to bravely get closer to meowmy's sister who was here for her birthday...(Happy Birthday, Meowmy!).
Auntie started talking nicely and in a crooning way to Minko...and he even was letting her scritch him under his chin...suddenly dog-guy, appawrently jealous of this, decided to get up on the organ bench, too, to get a share of that attention...and he wanted to push Minko down. He gave no warning, he just made a woof and a boingy jump on those pogo sticks he calls legs, and there he was!
That scared Minko who mewed his 'help me pawlease miaow', and so I came out in a hissy huff, and gave my smacky-pawed opinion to that goof of a dog-guy...
I still have no idea why meowmy and auntie decided that was so funny they had to sit there and giggle loudly. Hrumph!

[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Meowmy - aka - Catretary has been bad, lazy and neglectfur of my need to purr to my furends here...well on my own page that is, MOL!
I will concede that she does often let me mew to others from time to time...
Sheesh! Its been over 2 weeks since I last got to mew anything...well, now I shall purr an e-purr-stle, MOL! (Um...I don't think meowmy/catretary would let me do that...)
There have been some things happening in my den...the quiet having been disturbed, and not only by that barking noisy dog-guy.
Furst there were some dudes here to put in a new water heater...but meowmy said that was fur the humans here, not the kitties...we drink nice cool water. Those dudes sure knew how to make a lot of NOISE. UGH!
They even climbed on the roof of my den to check the chimney, because the water heater is gas and needs to have a safe chimney...good, at least we shall be safe from issues there.
I had to smack that dog-guy a lot, he was so silly and noisy with those dudes...
A few days of peace and then there was another team of dudes here...to check the recently installed water softener...wasn't working right, go figure! They were in the kitchen , the bathroom...invaders, I say, invaders! Just when Minko & I thought they were gone, they would come back to do this or check that...so I helped Minko find a good hidey hole, and we just chilled until we heard meowmy say bye-bye! At least they did not make as much noise.
Pawppy told me there are more peeps coming next week to check the furnace. Why didn't he get these things all done on the same day? Then we would only have to 'suffer' once, MOL!
Meowmy still hasn't even had time to get the toys out of storage, the toys she gets out every year when it is Christmas time...some balls that are furry shiny, some strands of beads, and lighted things, some trees that have sparkly lights in them, some furry feathery burds that sit in those round things she hangs up, I think she calls them wreaths.
Some animals that never make any noise, but we like to knock them off the shelf because they are rather small, that makes meowmy annoyed, she says we should not play with camels and angels...well if all these things and more, are out in full view, then why are we not allowed to touch/play with them?? MOL! Meowmy/Catretary is not only bad, she seems daft as well!
Oh, yes there was also that day when the whole den smelled so furry delish! Meowmy called it Thanksgiving, and I gave thanks for the wee tidbits of turkey I got. Minko did, too, and I have to say, I am jealous a bit, because I saw dog-guy got a dish full of more things than either one of us did...but meowmy said it was crunchy veggies...well, OK then!
We all got to sample a lick of whipped cream from the pumpkin pie...all made from scratch...hey, meowmy scratches fur her cooking?? I shall have to pay more attention in the future...
Meowmy scared me, too...I heard her talk to pawppy about maybe rescuing another dog-guy...OMC! Well not yet, MOL! She says we need to be patient fur the right moment, and that only time will tell if that happens..well, fur sure, no offense meowmy but Minko & I do NOT need another dog-guy...well, Minko might enjoy it, he likes to wash those stinky pup ears...sheesh!
And then to add more insults, she told pawppy about a kitty she saw a picture of...a 2 year old flame point Meezer, named Zeke, at the local shelter...OMC! Pawlease not, meowmy...Well, she did concede that purrhaps now, being busy Christmas time wasn't the best time to adopt anew kitty...phew!
(Meowmy here: Yes I was sorely tempted with that handsome orange Meezer! And I really want to spare the local pup that keeps getting out of his yard and tries to come into ours by crawling under our fence...)
Well, I see I did get the catretary too write my e-purr-stle, MOL!
Purrs to all, and Happy Getting ready fur Christmas...um Catmas!

Tomorrow shall be my day, indeed, and I may even decide to dance a kitty dance of purleasure, but today its still Christmas!
I hope you, my sweet pals have all had a nice day, warm and cozy with your furmily members snuggling together...I know I sure did, the whole furmily was home all day! Ahhh, that is the good life fur a kitty!
Thanks so furry much fur all those gifts and prezzies on my page!!
Here is a wee one from all of us furs here in Catster & Dogsterland:
Merry Christmas From The Rickmar Furs
I got lots of snuggles and a new catnip skunk! A skunk??! Well meowmy said those were her only choices at the store, a grey mousie and a black skunk...filled with catnip, and akin to the doggy toys known as unstuffies, or skinnies. Guess who got the mousie??
Well I played a bit with my skunkie, but somehow I thought snuggling was a way better gift to have from my peeps...and that is just what I did.
Now tomorrow, it is my own spawsial day, aka Birthday, or as some would call it, a purrsday, or a meowday.
I tried to jump in all the rustling paper wrappings but dog-guy and Minko were hogging them, sigh...so I just stayed put in snuggle mode, afterall, I am a dignified kitty cat, a Meezer...of mature vintage, though I do spend a lot of time trying to catch that evfur elusive tail of mine.
It always elicits a giggle from meowmy when she get to watch my chasing games.
This morning befur the others got up, meowmy put a belled Christmas collar on me...I thought that wasn't necessary, but she thought it made me look furry festive...howevfur it came off long befur her camera came out, MOL!
In other mews, I have heard that there will not be another dog-guy coming to live here...that pup meowmy was trying to rescue was killed by a car, meowmy is so furry upset, and though I do not care fur dog-guys, I feel badly about that turn of events. My dog-guy did a lot of face washing of meowmy's leaky face windows.
So now I will let you all return to your spawsial Christmas evening of quiet reflection of why we have this catabratory day...
May your CHRISTmas evening be blessed and wonderfur!

[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Christmas Eve came with a snow storm, yesterday, it was Christmas and the sun shone all day! Hooray fur sun puddles!
Today it was snowy, windy and cold and grey...all day long...on my Birthday! Sheesh!
Well I did some kitty dancing...well chasing my tail, that is, MOL! I roll like a ball sometimes when I do that.
Yesterday, I got some gifts fur Christmas, and today I got some more...fur catabrating my meowday! But...Minko decided to abscond with one of them...and it took a while befur meowmy found where he had hidden it! Then dog-guy eyed the other one and if meowmy hadn't intervened, he might have ripped or chewed that all up, he has done that before...sigh...no wonder I do not like him, MOL!
Then when unfurbro and meowmy were on the floor solving an electrical problem...I decided that was a fine time to go urk-urk-urk...gah-brup! Otherwise known as a throw-up...but that was early in the day, and none has happened since, meowmy says I just needed the extra attention...esp since I did it all over her hand when she tried to catch it on a piece of paper...eeuwww!
I also got to lick up some yums in the kitchen befur suppertime, Minko was nowhere to be seen...so I got all of it! MOL! It was mine, all mine!
I want to thank all the many furs and their furmilies who have sent me comments, P-mails and prezzies! OMC! There are evfur so many of them! Coupled with the ones from Christmas, my page is overflowing with the love! Eventually I shall convince her to send you all my purrsonal thank-mews.
Thank-mew all from the bottom of my Pipo ♥ !

[ Leave A Comment | 6 people already have ] Yesterday meowmy helped us 'publish' a diary about some funny heavenly happenings...
Well, today after just about freezing off her toes, since it was -10 outside...and snowy, too...meowmy stayed indoors and read the Toronto Star. Its one of the ways how she 'keeps up' with the goings on in Canada where she is from.
She got all upset and when we heard why, we had to hiss loudly, too: HISS-Meowrowl-HISS! We need to get our claws ready...

Cat eradication plea draws hisses from New Zealand’s kitty lovers
Published on Tuesday January 22, 2013
Gareth Morgan called on his countrymen Tuesday to make their current cat their last in order to save the nation’s unique bird species.
The Associated Press
WELLINGTON, NEW ZEALAND—Gareth Morgan has a simple dream: a New Zealand free of pet cats that threaten native birds. But the environmental advocate has triggered a claws-out backlash with his new anti-feline campaign.
Morgan called on his countrymen Tuesday to make their current cat their last in order to save the nation’s unique bird species. He set up a website, called Cats To Go, depicting a tiny kitten with red devil’s horns. The opening line: “That little ball of fluff you own is a natural born killer.”
He doesn’t recommended people euthanize their current cats — “Not necessarily but that is an option” are the site’s exact words — but rather neuter them and not replace them when they die. Morgan, an economist and well-known businessman, also suggests people keep cats indoors and that local governments make registration mandatory.
Morgan’s campaign is not sitting well in a country that boasts one of the highest cat ownership rates in the world.
“I say to Gareth Morgan, butt out of our lives,” Bob Kerridge, the president of the Royal New Zealand Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, told the current affairs television show Campbell Live. “Don’t deprive us of the beautiful companionship that a cat can provide individually and as a family.”
For thousands of years, New Zealand’s native birds had no predators and flourished. Some species, like the kiwi, became flightless. But the arrival of mankind and its introduction of predators like cats, dogs and rodents has wiped out some native bird species altogether and endangered many others.
“Imagine a New Zealand teeming with native wildlife, penguins on the beach, kiwis roaming about in your garden,” Morgan writes on his website. “Imagine hearing birdsong in our cities.”
But many New Zealanders are against the campaign. Even on Morgan’s website, 70 per cent on Tuesday were voting against making their current cat their last.
Morgan could not be reached on Tuesday.
And the science remains unclear. Some argue that cats may actually help native birds by reducing the population of rodents, which sometimes feed on bird eggs.
Morgan’s separate personal blog, in fact, has a separate campaign to raise $1 million to eradicate mice from the remote Antipodes Islands, where rodents are the only predators.
A 2011 survey by the New Zealand Companion Animal Council found that 48 per cent of households in New Zealand owned at least one cat, a significantly higher rate than in other developed nations. The survey put the total cat population at 1.4 million.
In the U.S., 33 per cent of households own at least one cat for a total of 86 million domestic cats, according to a 2012 survey by the American Pet Products Association.
Scientist David Winter said cats are indeed a problem in New Zealand, having contributed to the extinction of at least half a dozen New Zealand bird species. Writing on his blog “The Atavism,” Winter said Morgan’s campaign appeared designed to “start conversations.”
Still, he added, “What hope is there for environmentalists in conversation where our side wants to take people’s kittens away?”
( There are tons of comments under that article, too...catroversial fur sure...)
Come and help us HISS! What about all our furends here in Catsterland who dwell there in NZ?? If we HISS loudly enough maybe that dude will think again, well appawrently he wasn't thinking too clearly at least about us loving cuddly furs.
I bet all my whiskers that that dude has not ever had a kitty of his own. HISS
Hmmm, maybe that's why meowmy used a lot of birdies in her kitty pics lately! MOL!

[ Leave A Comment | 11 people already have ] YES!!
I can, and I DO!!
She has furs with points like me, but of a lighter more delicate variety, which of course befits her feminine beauty...and with azure eyes, limpid pools of deep blue...OMC she is a good Valentine to have for me, Pipo.
Of course many of you know her, she is Penelope, AKA Penny.
Meowmy made a portrait of her & I to display:
Well, now I have to go and dream of what kinds of sweet nothings I shall purr in her ears...as I lay in a warm sunpuddle that has come out of the clouds that dumped 6 inches of heavy snow on our area...at least we are not buried like those folks to the east who are getting a snowmageddon.
I hope they all stay safe and warm.

[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] Oh, MY CATNESS!
There is chocolate overload on my page, not to mention the many other purrsents that are there, too...WOW!
I should say its more like a love overload, but how on earth can a kitty have too much of that!?! MOL!
Thanks to Catster HQ fur letting us have a great time on the Day of Love to spread it all around.
Thanks to all of you kitty pals who pawrticipated in sending out those purrsents!
There were 46 of them gracing my page!
I can't expect meomy to send out that many thanks notes...so I am doing it here:
THANK MEW SO FURRY MUCH!!!
I like to think that the candy boxes are filled with catnip goodies, covered in carob...
So I also had a goodly lot of fun times being with Penelope, my furry own sweet Valentine!
We exchanged some gifts, too; afterall, you have to give purrsents to your Valentine...jewels, treats and other wonderfurl items to warm a kitty heart.
I hope you all had a nice time catabrating Valentine's Day.
Meowmy had to go to work...sigh...and on my Gotcha Day too, sheesh!
Well since it was my Gotcha Day, here is a 'take two' of the Gotcha diary from last year. That way any furry pals who don't know all about it can read it here:
Gotcha Day, 2012
Well, yesterday was my Gotcha day, and today I thought it would be fun to share that story with my furends.
I was kind of too busy yesterday with all the Valentine's Day and Gotcha Day things going on around here...
A long time ago, 7 years, actually...I was in a den where there were a whole bunch of kitties, and all of them were Meezers, like me.
My kitty daddy was there, and several kitty aunts, uncles and cousins as well as my kitty mom. I no longer remember any of them, but now I do have another kitty brofur...by another mom, MOL!
Anyways, my meowmy was sad, because she and pawppy had just lost Toki, at the age that I am now, 7...Yikes!...well, he got furry sick, but I am healthy so I am not worried...
So they had Suki, who was also 7 or 8 years old. She was lonely, too, and did not get along with dog-guy, who by then was about 4.
Meowmy looked in the newspaper,and there were two ads for meezer kitties...so off she went. My birth home was closer so she went there first, by herself.
And when she got to that home, she had a hard time deciding which kitten was going to be coming home with her, MOL!
I just crawled into her lap...and purred...and she was smitten!
And then I went home to be her Pipo, named after a cat that one of her aunts had had years in the past, who was also a meezer like me!
After school that day, meowmy took one of my unfurbros and went to see the other kittens she had seen advertised...and that story is Minko's, you can read it in his diary...
Anyways, me being me...when that kitten came in the door, I knew I was not going to be having all the attention to myself here, so I hissed at him, MOL! And I hissed at him when he looked at my toys,and my food dish...and even at such a baby age, we were not too keen on each other..but it didn't take furry long, and we missed the littermates we had been with, so we made up our minds to call a truce...when we were allowed to be together according to the vets instructions...and we started to curl up together...and show brotherly affection to each other...and I even decided to make it my mission to protect this brofur of mine from dog-guy...and I still do! I have the fastest smacky paw meowmy has evfur seen! MOL!
And Suki...she was not happy with either of us! And she gave meowmy the stink eye, for a long time after that...but eventually she let us get near her, and we would make a kitty pileup...but meowmy has no pics of that...bummer!
Suki got sick when she was 10, and her seizures scared us a lot, so even though we knew meowmy was sad when she had to go to the RB, somehow we didn't seem to miss her all that much, likely because of the stronger bond we had with eachother...Meowmy missed her a whole lot more than we did...and still does, she was such a diva/princess/drama queen, MOL!
So there you have it!

[ Leave A Comment | 11 people already have ] I have a job. Its called Pipo-Pawppy-Pet-Pipoweighter. This is a self employed position, discovered as viable employment with benefits for both pawrties, the employed and the employee.
Pawppy has been spending a lot of time worshiping that large porcelain fixture that peeps sit on, but pawppy was finding other ways to use it, out of necessity, MOL! Poor pawppy!
Then when he leave that room, he goes and plops down on the recliner. That's where my work starts. I jump up there and make sure he stays there as long as possible. My pay is a nice warm and soft resting pawlace. Pawppy's benefit is a warm soft kitty to pet, and be warmed up by.
Meowmy said that pawppy has gastroenteritis! Phew! What a big word, no wonder he needs to rest. MOL!
Today he got up a bit more, so he said I may find myself unemployed really soon, because HE needs to go back to his job, so that Minko & I will have good food to eat...
I hope meowmy doesn't get that way, because then while I may have new employment, who will scoop my boxes, or fill my bowls? Pawppy only evfur does those things when meowmy is out of town...
By the way, while pawppy was feeling green, it wasn't the traditional March Green of St Patrick's Day, MOL!

I was in the gift shop to do some Easter egg hunting, and lo and behold there is a freebie there, today!
Thank you so much Catster-HQ for helping me and my pals have a fun and Happy Easter!
I, Pipo & my furbling Minko, as well as our angel furblings do wish all of you a Blessed Easter and a fun day. Enjoy all those purrty eggs!
Its an Egg Bonanza, an Eggstravaganza!!

[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Jezebel asked my to play the tag game...OMC, the older lady asked me! I have been tagged...
Anyways here are 5 things I like about Spring:
1) The snow is gone!
2) The sun is getting nice and warm.
3) The birds are singing really early in the morning, so tantalizing....
4) The grass is greening up, and the buds are getting swollen on the shrubs and trees...which means leaves....for some shade for those really hot days to come.
5) The bugs are coming...the bugs are here! Ugh says meowmy...but I say its a lot of fun to stalk and catch them, mOL!
I am supposed to find some other kitties to tag, but if you are reading this and have not offurcially been tagged...then now you are!

[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ] Meowmy had been acting really strange the past few hours this evening. She kept looking at the TV, but not just at the Baseball game...those Tigers of mine lost...in extra innings, shucks.
Well anyways after dark it got rather noisy outside, and i could see lights flashing out there, too.
Then suddenly the TV beeped some loud beeps, the outside was booming even louder...and meowmy bribed me out of my hidey hole with a wand toy...only to proceed to pick me up and stuff me into a carrier. Then she locked me in there, and just left me there...and dog guy was lying on the floor by me, the nerve.
I could hear the dumping of buckets of rain on the roof and windows, and the lightening got even brighter, and the thunder was frightening, too. And how am I supposed to hide from all that when I am stuck in a carrier?
Meowmy said we were under a tornado warning, and that we needed to be ready to get in the cellar asap. Except we didn't, MOL!
The storm tracker said our village was just beyond the imminent danger, so while we were ready to seek shelter, God was gracious and we were all safe and sound. There had been a funnel cloud sighted about 5 miles from here...OMC:(
I hope evfurryone else is OK, too.
Milo Blue Eyes...that is some pawrty you are having up there...did you dump out all the bowling balls??

[ Leave A Comment | 8 people already have ] Meowmy said I should meow this entry, since Minko & WBS had their turns recently...
Ants? I do stalk them and so does Minko but we mostly leave them alone, they make us jump when we touch them with our paws...
And now meowmy says she has ants crawling alll over in side of her no less - YUCK!
She said she traded them for Titus...she said she was Selling Titus and some lady gave her the ants in a bottle, and told her to eat them for the next week...OMC! Whatever is the world coming to?
That same lady also gave meowmy a piece of paper that said since she had this Selling Titus business she had to stay away from her work until she ate all of the ants...Now I know meowmy has either lost her mind or this Selling Titus junk has made her nuts...
Meowmy says that that Titus was making her elbow all red and hot and swollen, and so she went to the lady who sold ants and papers.
Meowmy says she would much rather not have to take ants and be going to her work...what! And not stay home with Minko & I??
Meowmy says she has not got the foggiest idea where that Titus came from...but as far as we are concerned if the ants crawling around in her make it go away, then we are all fur that!
We do not want to share her with anyone, much less a Titus, MOL!

[ Leave A Comment | 11 people already have ] We had company recently and after a while of peeking out at them from a safe hidey hole, I got furry brave. I went and gave them some kittycat attention in the form of purrs and head bonks.
They love kitties, and had two of their own, until recently.
They had a black kitty who was 16 years I think...and one day he went under their bed and passed away, furry quietly and just without any warning to them. Sad. They still have a big orange kitty, though. He likes to drink out of the fishbowl...with his paw...hey, I might like him, I drink out of my waterbowl just like that, too...only there is no goldfish in it, MOL!
So I became furends with meowmy's cousins. They slept in the livingroom and that means that Minko & I got lots of extra snuggle time, MOL!
It did take Minko a bit longer to come out of hiding, though...his loss of good pets, and chin scritches, and since there were two peeps visiting we both could share a lap!
So...I have learned that not all peeps who come to our door are scary...
August 6th 2013 11:37 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 8 people already have ] Yup, Almost evfurry time I am a DDP, meowmy finds reasons to not be here...like going on trips, having to work, or its her day to do lots of errands...well...sigh...I am a DDP today and this is the furst time she can help me to acknowledge it, MOL! Still 35 minutes to go on this day in the Catster Time Zone, MOL!
So today, she said she had to make some pics for other furs...that they come furst! Well I nevfur!! And do chores here...
Then she had to go to 6 places to run her errands,and then she had to make dinner, and on and on. She was further delayed by an accident along her route, not herself, thankfurly. Not too serious for those involved either.
Then she met a former co-worker and had to chat with her fur a while.
Come on meowmy, hurry UP!
Well, better late than nevfur!
Thanks pals for pawsome pics, and lots of fun prezzies. I will try to have her post those pics in my biofields soon...and send you my thank-mews, too.
The past few days were lovely open window days, but today was more humid so they stayed closed... Its fun to hear all the bugs and birds, with the panes shut, you can only see them. I got to see all those silly chickens again...and meowmy was giggling at them...they were 'on parade' when it as feeding time fur them...a parade of chickens from their back porch, to their pen, way in their back yard.
It was fun to read all the comments where kitties told me that they too use their paws in the water bowls!
Of the 6 kitties that meowmy has lived with, I am the only one who has done this.
Simba and Toki were faucet drinkers, but not me!
Minko likes to check out the tub after anyone has used the shower...but he doesn't drink any water there.
Well, once again, Thank Mew!

[ Leave A Comment | 9 people already have ] Appawrently I Have A Bad Pearl
Minko & I have just made our trek to the vet pawlace, against our will, I might add.
Those peeps not only poked and prodded my purrson, they had vampires there, too. I received two outer socks to cover my beautifur dark ones that I keep so well groomed, Don't know as to why they thought I should have other ones than my own.
The lady told meowmy that I needed two, because I was inpatient and wasn't going to let them only use one sock, so I jerked my leg and they had to start all over on the other sock covering, MOL! That will teach vampires not to mess with me, MIAOW!
Meowmy brushes my teeth regularly and Minko's too. But meezers seem to be prone to dental disease…and so the vet lady said that while most of my pearly whites were great, there was one that was showing resorption. Ouch:( I may have to lose it…OMC I will be disfigured…well, at least its not my fang, else I won't be able to be Captain Pipo-Fang on Pirate's Day...
So an appointment was made to take care of it in about a month from now.
Well, meowmy will be feeling it too…because now from this visit, her pockets are empty; $$ has to be drummed up to order the prescriptions we always use, fur heartworm…and then of course I will be worth about a million $$ more after my pearly whites are made to gleam like beacons in my dark-furry masked visage.
And then she has to deliver even more $$ to that same pawlace, because soon dog-guy will be seeing the same vampire gals, MOL!
Serves her right fur taking us there...

[ Leave A Comment | 10 people already have ] Pawppy was so naughty to me & Minko tonight...he went to bed, and didn't fill the food bowls, instead, he took them away:((
Now why would he do that, I wonder. I thought he loved me & Minko?
Well, when meowmy came home from work, there we were to greet her with plenty of miaows, and pleading looks. I caught her eye and mrouwwwwed, then I jumped to where my food bowl always is, to let her know to PURRLEASE fill it!
Um...she did not:(
What in Catness is going on?
My poor belly needs nourishment, and all I get is a chin scritch? HISS!
And not only this I overheard meowmy get in on this catspiracy by saying to pawppy to take away the water in the morning? OMC, I shall be dead by then.
And I see a carrier...OK Kitties, I am going to hide, its the end of my world...furst I shall check and see if by some miracle the food came back, so that its all a joke...nope:((
Pipo has to go fur his teeth cleaning in the morning...so ignore Pipo's pleas, and just purr that all will go well...
September 24th 2013 11:01 am
[ Leave A Comment | 10 people already have ] Well, kitty pals, I am home and minus a couple of purrls, that were purrloined from the upper reaches of my jaws. At least they didn't dare purrloin my fangs, phew, I am still able to be a Captain Pipo-Fang when I need to be a pirate.
Those white-coats said I had 3 purrls missing, too...thats odd, I never had any other dentistry theives in my mouth?!
When I got home, meowmy had to leave that jail-cell shut, cause dog-guy wanted to get to me, HISSSSS!
So after she put him in the fenced yard, I came out...and walked in circles, because I was kind of loopy, MOL!
Minko came to see me...and then things went from bad to worse, he hissed and hissed and growled and yowled at me, and smacky-pawed me too:(
Meowmy had already rubbed my towel all over him, and taken his nest towel and done that to me...but to no avail. After this debacle Minko ran off and hid.
So I used that litter box thing, and snagged some grub, and then I went to take a nap.
When I woke up, meowmy was running hours of errands, (she had to help unfurbro do things in his apt), and pawppy was there. So I went over to him, ahhh, such a nice soft lap he has!
Well, Minko wanted to be a lap cat too, but that was bad timing, he smelled me and the hiss festival started again, even I was helping.
When meowmy got back, pawppy reported that there was overt hostility going on, OMC:(
Well, today we can look at each other, but when meowmy put down catnip, a whole lot of it, we began again...sigh...
Meowmy spoke with the vet peeps,and they said it might still take a few days, Oy :((
I am OK, though, eating and drinking, taking the pain meds and some antibiotic, too.
All my labs were good, too.
I just want to be able to snuggle with my brofur again, its not hot like in the summer and a bedmate is always welcome on these cooler evenings...
Thanks all of you fur the purrs and pawyers, I appawsiated them a lot.
Now just keep them going so that silly Minko will be my buddy again...

[ Leave A Comment | 21 people already have ] Yup, you heard it, all our Catmas trees...four of them to be exact...are unlit and look so bleak. Meowmy, where are all the purrty bright lights??
We have four small trees here in various pawlaces about the den, no longer does meowmy put up a big one, too much trouble keeping curious kitties from climbing into them...way back, Simba took a nap in her tree and ruined the branches, and since then...no more big trees! MOL! She remembers how he was so young and curious about all those decorations, and he just had to climb into there, it was the purrfect spot to sleep the time away in blissfur peace, MOL!
Anyways, tonight none of our decorations are lit. And only some of the other lights are on...howevfur if we peer through the windows it is so dark, the darkness is intense...nobody around here has lights on, there is no power, thanks to the ice storm we had last night. We DO have power, because we are blessed to have the generator. But we don't want to ovfurtax it then we too would be in the dark and cold.
The power dudes said they hope to get things working again by the 27th, OMC! That is days away!
Well, we will take the semidarkness, if it means we can stay home with our peeps and be warm and cozy, too. At least we didn't have to make use of the warming shelters put up by the Red Cross....they likely wouldn't allow furry critters there anyways.
So...we sure hope the predictions are wrong so we can be all fixed in time for a Merry Christmas!

I got some nice purrsents for Catmas, and I know that later today I will get some more fur my birthday, because this day is mine!
Yesterday was Catmas, Christmas and all the jolly Santa's day...but today.; well, it really must be mine, because its Boxing Day too, and what kitty worth its salt wouldn't love a box or two?! I sure do.
And we got another purrsent here, fur ALL of us: The Christmas trees got to be all lit up, and our power is back on! How gratefur I am about that. Howevfur some peeps around here still are all dark. Crews are working around the clock, and they even shared their Christmas day with trucks and wires to help the un-powered regain it. Some restaurants were feeding these work crews inn appawsiation fur their efforts. And we ware getting more snow right now, on top of all the icy branches, so more power troubles may be on the way...but I hope not, because its MY day!
Meowmy had to go to work on Christmas...and she has to let me share her with her peeps today, too...well, I know she does that work to be of help to those that need her, so I am willing to share in that case...and my unfurs are here all day to snuggle with. And I am warm!

The snow was higher than the windows at one point, though it has now cmpacted a bit, and the past three days have been sunny, My catness I almost furgot what that was like to enjoy a fine sunpuddle.
What a lot has happened in Catsterland, too since I last miaowed here.
Furst we were all so furry shocked and saddened thinking this unique and wonderfur site was just going to shut the doors furever. YIKES:(
Then a miracle happened and now we are going to be given a new lease to stay here. What a relief!
You know sometimes us kitties grumble about this or that, but once we thought this place was going to be taken away from us, wow, how much more precious to us now that we are going to be able to stay together! Grumbles will have to be stopped befur they leave our thought boxes, MOL!
And you know what? We even made some new furends though all of this. Plus meowmy learned how to back up our profiles! Wow! The good always shines through the darkness!
Well now; It was also my Gotcha Day yesterday...and Minko's too, we were gotted on the same day from different parts of our town.
We were gotted on Valentine's Day of 2005...meowmy had one of us in a carrier box at a party at our unfurs school, MOL!
I thank you all fur the huge overflowing load of purrsents on my page. What love!
Meowmy wasn't feeling to good last few days with a cold...well she didn't get to send out those spawsial rose bouquets or candy hearts...but she did help me & Minko send out some of those big hugs and catster cutie/catster cassanova ones.
Today she mostly just lounged around, trying to restore her energy levels...at least she didn't have to shovel anything other than litter boxes, MOL!
Then she and pawppy went to to dinner to catabrate a belated Valentine's Day!
Well, Minko needs a turn now...off I go to a soft warm nest to cat nap!

[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] I am so good at snoopervising and leading my pawppy around our den, why he even deigns to follow me!
And when he rewards me with a chin scritch he has to bend over a bit…so then I hop up on his shoulders/back to get a ride.
Or I might decide its a good warm shelf to curl up on…Hmmpfff, he always stands up so I have to get off…sigh…
And pawppy was lamenting the fact that he had to throw away a nice white usb cord…all chewed up he said…and he glared at me. OMC! I am a good 4-paws. I only beat up dog-guy to protect my kitty brofur Minko…
oh and I hiss at meow my when she tries to brush my teeth...shucks thats so undignified, why should I have to suffer that brush with yucky kitty toothpaste on it, why its not like its catnip flavored or tuna.
Well, I have to go and see if there are any noms…purrs!

[ Leave A Comment | 8 people already have ] My name should be Pee-po according to meowmy...
Meowmy was straightening up a cupboard nearby the litterbox.
So I sat on top of the box and watched fur a while…but then I had an urge…well, you know, a call from nature to do my duty.
Meowmy realized that I was in the litterbox, and didn’t think much of it…until she heard a strange sound…like a hard stream of liquid in the wrong spot…huh? OMC! She bent over the box, and sure enough…my paws were in there, my back ones were not and my tail was UP. And fur sure I was making a pee and none of it was going in the designated litter. All of it was on the litter mat and the towel under that mat…(Meowmy thought at least she was prepared.) I do have to give her credit…she didn’t spook me or anything like that, she just let me finish, and then she cleaned it up…thank mew, meowmy!
But now she says she knows who is the culprit, because she once in a while has found pee-pee in the wrong place, outside the box, that is why the towel and other protections were already there. Shoot, now I can’t blame ‘not-me’ or Minko…and well dog guy can’t fit into that space…sheesh, I can’t even blame him. But I smacky pawed him a lot today nonetheless...
Busted! And renamed…from Pipo to Pee-po…sigh…
And thank-mew to the HQ of the ‘new’ Catster.
I am so glad that I can mew and MIAOW whenever I need to!
I hope to be doing this fur a long long time!
Here is a funny thought...March is supposed to be green for St Patricks Day, but...I do have a lot of green on my page, Christmas trees, and they are all decorated too, MOL! Oh well...at least I HAVE a page and can mew with you all!

[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ] I like to sit and watch the outdoor activity, lots to see right now, being as it is spring break for school kids. There are some chickens next door, OMC!
I chattered and mroepped at them.
Dog guy was sitting under the window, in the grass, catching rays.so I did more chattering and chirping…
Then I saw a lot of robins hunting for their meal…in *my* yard. How dare they trespass! So I chattered and chirped some more…
Then…OMC! I had to hiss and MIAOW!
Nevermind a chatter…I saw the neighbors *cat*. Hey how come that kitty can go outside? He better not dare to come over our fence into *my* yard…cause then I will chatter to dog-guy to evict him…MOL!
Meowmy says I am not being polite, but I am only doing my duty as a through the window yard patroller/chatterbox. So there. MIAOW!

[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ] Happy Mother's Day to all Mothers!
Be you a Momma, a Mommy, a Meowmy, or a Mom...or purrhaps a Moeder or a Madre. Maybe some of your Mothers are also Grandmas! Or Oma's or Bepe's...
We are honoring all of you today. Even if you're only having furkids...you're still their Mother! So there!
Anyways, now that I have mewed all about that..here is some more furry mews.
Minko got all busted today, and I was deemed innocent because I had an alibi, MOL! I was napping in a warm sun puddle right in front of the peeps...and Minko was not...Dog-guy was near the peeps too, so even though I like to smacky paw and hiss him, today its not him getting into the bad-books...
Minko chewed up Unfur-the-Elder's power supply, a dedicated spawsial one...it is $55 to replace it, OMC. Must have been him who chewed up that USB cord last week, right? Similar damage seen on this item as that one.
How on earth is he going to find the right kind of work to pay fur those kind of damages...
Glad it wasn't me!
I am a Goody Four-Paws!

[ Leave A Comment ] Today, Dec 26th, Pipo turned 10! Wow! He belongs to the old furt club now, MOL!!
He began the fun early today with a big upchuck...OMC:(
But after that he was fine...must have had to exit a hairball, eeuuwww! Or steal the pukie show from Minko...( who has been doing a lot of that of late...)
Of course he demanded and received lots of belly rubs, nip and treats...he doesn't play with toys too much, sometimes a mousie or a crinkle ball.
And well, since it was pawrty time, he had to have his piccie taken to mark the oc-cat-sion...but he wasn't about to cooperate a whole lot, even though all he was wearing was a collar...Meowmy doesn't use any flash, only the available light. Her 'flashy box' today was her I-pad, that doesn't make noise like a camera. at least not that meowmy can discern...but Pipo just hangs his head or closes his eyes...even when pawppy came by to perk his attensions, MOL! He just wants to be difficult, MOL!

And it was so bright and sunny, puurfect fur picture taking, but Pipo wasn't having it...his dark visage makes it really challenging esp in a shadow. to see his eyes...oh well, we got a few to show you...
And Rory and his Mom Esther along with the rest of that talented gang, sent us a picture too. How nice of them.
Thank Mew Rory and your helpful gang fur this pawsome picture!
I shared this day of my birth with pawppy's Mom.but I nevfur met her...though some of my angel furblings did.
Then meowmy saw me sitting on the diningroom table...too bad the background wasn't too great...oh well...
Pipo, Age 10, Dec 26th, 2014
Pipo, Age 10, Dec 26th, 2014
Pipo wishes all of you a great weekend...meowmy has to return to her work tomorrow...well, it was nice having her here 4 days in a row!
Minko chucked up once late in the day...then ate a good supper as helped by meowmy...he was trying to help Pipo take the pictures...more about his doings in a few days...MIAOW!
Purrs to all and to all a good night! MIAOW!

[ Leave A Comment ] Yesterday was Valentine's Day.
After the clock chimed 3 am...hence it was then Feb 15th...the free gift was no longer there. Sheesh:( Bummer:(
So I was not able to send any to anyone, meowmy will have to apawlogize else I will be in the bad books of my pals in Catsterland, after all it was her fault that this happened. She says she was furry busy doing a lot of so called 'not Catster' things... whatevfur...
Anyways, Thanks so much fur all of them. All who sent them were kind and thoughtfur! I love you all! ♥ There, now I sent you my own heart, MOL!
It was also my Gotcha Day! Cool, huh, to have your Gotcha Day on the day of love:))
Thanks so much, too for the spawsial prezzies sent to me and pawmails too to help the catabration of this day! My gift box is full to the brim! OMC!!
It was not the nicest day outside, so the peeps spent lots of time at home, which meant that I was able to get my share of belly rubs, laser tag games and yummy noms. Um...wait, the peeps stayed home but were too busy to send out free gifts? What the cat is wrong here I ask you? Well, they did have to spend several hours cleaning yet another dump of snow, battling bitter winds, that made the snow clearing hard, cause it kept drifting back in...sigh...then they went out to an early Valentine's dinner so they could get back afur darkness fell...cause the roads were skating rinks, and they didn't want to be out in that, in darkness...so I did get good lap time in the evening with pawppy.
Meowmy says she had spent a day in the land of Blogville doing things there fur dog-guy, OMC! I shall have to get a bit more catty with that dog-guy...eg, smacky paws and whacks, MOL!
Tundra did make my day nicer by sending me a lovely memento piccie:
Pipo: 'I got a lovely memento for my Gotcha Day from Tundra and her helpers! Thank mew so much!'
Well, I have to let Minko mew some miaows now too...I think he may have similar oppurnions...

[ Leave A Comment ] Yup, I did!! The Day after Christmas, I turned 11!
Meowmy was working Christmas and my birthday and yesteday too, so...well, I am loved and that is a furry good purrsent that goes on all the year long!
Rory made this for me:
And this was made fur me by the furs at The Birthday and Gotcha Day Club:
Thanks Birthday and Gotcha Day Club!!
Meowmy made this fur me, since she didn't really have time to make me a pawrty...
Thanks, too, fur all those purrsents and pawmails on my page and fur stopping by to make my day more fun:))
Well, I have to go now, its bad weather here, and we are just going to spend the evening relaxing together...I think its called quality time, MOL!
This is the end of the diary entries that I made on my Catster Diary pages...I hope you had fun perusing the catventures and other stuff:)
