[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] Hi everyone in catland.
My meowmy is finally helping me to write down the mewsings about my life's adventures.
Today I spent a lot of time on top of the recliner on the fleecy cover, because that's such a warm and soft place for my little kitty body. The dog beds are good places, too, as are the special purr pads on the couches. Meowmy says they are to keep the hairs I spill off the couch, but I think she just put them there for me and my brofur's comfort.
We had some nice sun today, so I spent a bit of time sitting on the cat condo's roof, looking out of the window. hoping a bird would show up, or maybe a squirrel. In warmer days, there may even be bugs around, but I haven't seen many of those lately.
The dog guy came up to me and begged me to wash his face and ears, so I did that for him, except he never lets me leave when I think I'm done...so I miaowed for Pipo to come and rescue me, which he did, and then I could get on with my cat affairs...
I wish that that computer thing wasn't so interesting for my meowmy, she spends so much time on that Catster place, so I have to go up to her and stretch out and use her lap area for my scratching post, very gently, then she bends down and rubs me till my purring machine gets started. I love that! I love to use her sandals as scratching posts, too, but in the winter she wears clogs, and they aren't nearly as good to get a grip with my paws on... I'm the only cat she's ever had that does this foot scratching stuff, well a kitty has to be known for his own individual stuff don't you think?
Well, I see that there is an empty dog bed nearby, so I'm going to use it for a while; Its the best one with an old mat in it, so I bite and pull up on it, to make an open spot to hide under, very cozy, the other day my meowmy couldn't see me, but I think I was snoring so she found me anyways-busted from my hidey-hole! Yawn
Purrs and Miaows till next I have mews for you all.

[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] My meowmy scared me today...! she got out that big noisy thing that she uses to clen up our spilled furs and scattered litter. That wasn't fair, because first of all, I was in the wrong place to escape from it, and second she did that yesterday already- what was she thinking? Usually only bugs me with that thing on Fridays, then just cleans up with a brush or broom inbetween. So I had to get out of the way of that machine AND that dog guy who wanted to chase me, because he could see I was in panic mode. Oh, the stress!
All of a sudden, Meowmy saw me , so she turned off that noisy thing and picked me up. I wanted to struggle, but she talked nice to me and carried me past that thing and the dog guy into the safe room, where she already had cleaned. Whew! But then she got back to her noise, will she never learn that I hate that thing??
Later, I forgave her and came to get a rub and a lap when she got back at that Catster computer stuff. I miaowed at her and gave her legs a workout with my paws, my humans make such good scratching posts...
Now I'm getting a sun bath and a whisker wash.
Purrs til next time.

[ Leave A Comment ] Hi again.
I get so frustrated by that dog guy who lives in our house. He wanted an ear wash, so I obliged him, but when I was done, he jumped in the pet bed with me and tried to curl up on me. Now I know its cold outside, but we are inside, guys, and its not cold in here... So I tried to get out of the bed, and he started to try and possess me,(you know hump me...oh brother...),I had to mew for Pipo to rescue me yet again. When the dog guy saw Pipo, he backed off and jumped right over me into the other bed. (There are 2 pet beds, side by side on the love seat...for our comfort.) Pipo stayed close by in case he was needed again, and sure enough I heard that tell tale growling from him. Then the dog guy jumped to the floor followed by Pipo who gave him plenty of cat paw slaps... Meowmy just laughs at all of this...Too bad she doesn't have a video camera, it would make good U-tube material.
So now I can finally curl up and have a long cat nap.
Purrs and miaows.

[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] My meowmy found me having a session of licking the table cloth this evening. Oh, that's not allowed? Someone spilled some cheese ans I was trying to help get it cleaned up. She evidently wanted to clean it up with some kind of a wet raggy thing...
Hah! I beat her, Yum!

I had lots of lap time with meowmy, too. She even put up new pictures for me. Wow! She must love me!Even the dog guy was pretty good to me, he only pestered me once today. If only the sun had been out, I would have liked to have basked in it...

[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] I gave the dog guy a very good ear washing today. Lick, lick lick and purr, purr. I always purr when I wash his face or ears. He got real pushy with me though. So I gave him a few cat slaps, and he let me go to the other pet bed, and so we napped side by side, but in different beds.

[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] Oh, what a lot of snow has fallen, in places where meowmy's furmily and a lot of furends live. I hope they are warm, safe and cozy.
Seeing the pictures, meowmy remembers her 2nd kitty, who looked like me...
He was an escaper at any chance. He always wanted to go outside to eat grass... His nickname was cowcat. Anyways, once after a big blizzard, he ran out the back porch door and jumped off the porch right into the snow bank. Meowmy thinks he thought the ground had risen up to make it easier for him to get off the porch...He was a big guy, and there he was.. all 4 legs stuck in the drift! Couldn't move no more. Let alone find any yummy grass...what WAS he thinking grass in January in Michigan??! Too bad it wasn't videoed... Meowmy said she laughed for a long long time...but after looking so sheepish that kitty still tried to get out all the time.
I do not like going outside, especially in this cold weather. I prefer catnip anyways...Don't get me started...I LOVE catnip!
Well, Meowmy says she needs to visit HER nest, so I shall let her do that while I go into mine...

[ Leave A Comment ] Scratching is so much fun...I love to do it on Meowmy's shoes, when she's wearing them, sandals are best for 'traction'. Sometimes I like to 'scratch on her legs when she's at the desk or dining room table. Its a great way to get her attention! Today I 'discovered' a new place for this great activity... Meowmy keeps a Bible on her desk, it is inside a tapestry book carrier/cover. When I jumped on the desk to give her a few head bonks, I decided to sit on this little 'throne'. Suddenly I had the idea that it felt so good under my paws...and so I gave it a workout with my forepaws. Meowmy was not impressed...I was just doing the things a cat has got to do...? I guess I'll just have to go and use the sisal post. There's just no having fun around here sometimes...
Purrs for now and a few scratches for good measure!

[ Leave A Comment ] Meowmy had lots of laundry today, and so that meant that the dryer was on a lot, too. Oh how I love to curl up in my little box on top of the dryer. The warmth and vibrations just lull me to sleep...Purrrrs
She brought home a new little pet nest to replace an old ratty one but so far I have rejected it... I think she should put some catnip in it! MOL!!

[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] Minko could keep all the world's hungry full with bread. He can get so busy with all this kneading stuff. Right now he is on my lap, purring away, bonking on my arms(making typing very pawnderous), and just kneading away! I think some would call this treading, if so then there should be plenty of good wine to go with the bread.(Treading the grapes...)
Well I need to go and find a better place to have this kitty as my lapwarmer/bread maker.
Purrs from Minko and greetings from his meowmy.

How I love my NIP! I even steal Pipo's Nip when I get a chance...I'm not naughty, I just have to have that nip stuff.I eat it! I've even counter surfed when I smelled catnip up there. A whole bag of it in a cup, it even had a little string and piece of paper on it to make it more fun. (Never did figure out why meowmy got all hissy-like and shooed me off of there, something about her catnip tea.)
Well that's all folks! Night- night!

So I will add my sympurrthies to the many that I know are going out to his furmily while they are feeling sad and need comfort from our Catster Furmily.

And along with the purrs I will gladly give any that may be interested a massage with my big treaders all you have to do is give me your big soft lap! How I love big soft and warm laps. First I will give you a massage on your legs to get your attention along with a little chirp, and then I will jump up and start my engines...

I got lots of extra pets and treats from my furmily, too.
Meowmy put a cloth tablecloth on the dinner table...it must have been a special day. Then when she wasn't looking, I jumped up there to sit and look out the window, its so much more comfy than the plastic cloth that's usually there. Too bad I got shooed off. Wish she would always have it on the table..MOL! Mostly I have to settle for the pot holders in the middle of the table(Trivets made of cloth),so then I sit right in the middle of those, like a little perch! Then I look like a handsome prince on his throne!!!
Well, I need to do some serious cat napping now.

I heard her say something to pawppy about a head cold and sinus headache. I don't know what she means, but if its cold, I won't like it... :~(
She wants to see a show about dogs(!) Why can't there be shows about cats. We are great to be displayed and oogled over, too! MOL!
She found a baby pic of me, all fuzzy and cute, I was then...Look at me now. I still have these very long fuzzy whiskers and now I am no longer cute but handsome. I need to be in a Cat show, I say! Miaow!!
I shall name it: 'Catmewster Feline Showoffs'.
Enough already, I need to go and knead, the lap is ready for me.

Usually there isn't a real cloth cover on the dining room table, but there has been one since Valentines day. I was just waiting for a chance like this... Miaow! But she shooed me off, and I had to be content with the cat condo shelf...Yowl!
At least meowmy says her cold problem isn't as bad anymore. But I shall still want to knead upon her lap, later tonight...

But not on the tablecloth...meowmy removed it to wash all of our hair donations off of it...Then she got out that noisy big blue machine with a big sucking hose...time to hide! later, she let me do lots of high jumps to chase the laser light.That was fun.
I spent some time bullying Pipo off the good sitting/sleeping places today, because I didn't want the DDP honor he had to go to his head...Heh-Heh! MOL,MOL!!

[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] I should join a kitty agility group... I can jump really high especially when I want to catch that laser light or the fuzzy tail on a stick. I run super fast like a zoomer, then jump several feet up on the wall or door to get that light... Meowmy gets worried that one day I may hit the wall...MOL! I have almost hit my little furry head on the door knob when I get too crazy and don't pay enough attention to my whereabouts. But maybe meowmy should be more careful about where she sends that light...MOL,MOL!
Does any one know of a group for us kitty athletes?

Then I gave her a head bonk or actually, several, on her head, on her arms on her lap, anywhere I could resach...But after she rubbed my furs and kissed me she put me on the catbed...said she couldn't type with all these bumps going on...Hey!

[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] I like to sit or lay on the CPU, because it is a warm place. Never mind that it isn't soft. It is also close to the person at the 'puter, so that i can get attention just by reaching out with my paw.
Today when the dog guy walked past, I stretched out and started that lovey-dovey stuff. Then I roll on my back and knead in the air, and eventually put out my paw to snare the passer by. which was the dog guy. His ears are just at the right height for me to catch with my paws..so that I can maybe give them a wash, too....by that time my head was also starting to go off the CPU, and because I was paying more attention to him , rather than how I was on the CPU...I rolled onto the floor. Humpf! I meant to do that!
So off I stalked, tail in the air, to find another place to sit an smooth out my ruffled furs.

[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] Meowmy has lost her mind, I think. MOL! She brought home all these green things, beads, head things, bow ties and something covered with green feathers. I tried my hardest to catch them and bite them...esp after she insulted my heritage of the Orient, by insisting that that Irish stuff go on my neck and head. And I was dumb enough to let her catch me to model that stuff...OMC! Purrlease! I have blue eyes..they don't match green stuff. But it was fun to get bitey with those feathery things...I had more fun when she tried the stuff on my canine furbling. He just sat there like a wuss and let her put everything on him...I guess he has closer ties to that Irish stuff than I ever could lay claim to! MOL!

It the best place to nap that I have found in the longest time...I was tuckered out from fly chasing, mouse stalking (and ripping apart),chasing Pipo, and following my peoples into the kitchen (to beg for yums from Sunday dinner...), and bathroom...and of course I had to be extra nice to the dog guy, because today he was DOTD.

[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] The other day, my meowmy lost her mind...as far as me and Pipo were concerned...
She peaked our interest by bringing in this big bag of stuff, ribbons, necklaces and bows and feathers and things that wiggled...of course we had to come and check it out...
that was a mistake!
First she nabbed me and tried to put some of those bag contents on me...Hey.! I don't wear clothes...not even a collar! I just kept wriggling out of the stuff or biting it...The feathery things were the most fun to try to catch.
Well that was my undoing...
Meowmy put me on one of my favorite perches, and pretended to play catch the feather with me...when I was busy with that, she actually managed to get the big green bow tie around my neck...and with more distractions I even was dumb enough to let her put a small ponytail holder around my leg. she wanted to put on the other one, but I wasn't having it... So then that silvery, buzzy and lightning flash thing came out...and now I am on display for all of Catster land to spy upon...MOL!
If she thinks that she can get some more pics of me with other green garb on I will let her know it isn't allowed...MOL!!

I am a kneader...so I can make and sell lots of bread to hungry souls...
I am also a spinner! So I can make lots of yarn to play with or to make into warm blankies for kitties to get cozy on...
You may be thinking, how can a kitty be a spinner?!
Well, that is because I am a purring machine and my engine runs at full speed quite frequently. Meowmy is of Dutch heritage. The word for purring in Dutch is "spinning" .
So I can spin yarn!
How cool is that!

Like magic the door opened and I saw some light and a nice warm hand beckoning me to come...aah! Cat-dad! I ran over and out the door and downstairs to the furnace vent to lick my ruffled feathers and calm my frazzled cat nerves...
I should know better than to make these adventures, but an open door to a forbidden place is so intriguing - who can resist that kind of temptation esp a kitty!
At least Cat-dad didn't step on me; or worse trip over me like meowmy once did..but that's another story...that should be on my (angel) furbling Simba's page...

[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] OH dear, I am having some issues, today...jealous ones...MOL!
Pipo was a DDP again today. 2 days in a row! Poor little me am having a hard time being patient to wait for the day when I might have a turn...again...MOL!
But its OK. It was nice and sunny today, so I could take my pick of many sun puddles.
I still got lots of pets and playtime with meowmy and I even shared a nest with dog-guy for a while.
Then when it was dark and I was getting bored...I had a big game of chase with Pipo...I wanted to get him! But I slipped and slid off the CPU that I had jumped on...I thought no one had seen that, but meowmy did and she giggled. Sheesh! Such disrespect! So off i stalked to continue bothering Pipo...MOL! (At least I didn't hurt myself...).
Right now I am taking a long nap to charge up my battery for the next catventure!

I am so embarrassed! And holding a carrot! I eat catnip,and fish and fowl...the dog-guy is the carrot eater around here...was there a mistake? Maybe HE should have been in this blue bunny suit...MOL!
What's that? He already has a blue bunny suit? Dang, then I guess I will have to be in this get up for a while, yet...under protest, don't forget that! MOL!
I have already indicated that by my lovely catangry scowly whiskery expressions that are up on my page for the whole of catsterland to gawk at...YOWL!

[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] Today while I was enjoying a lazy spell in such a comfy nest, meowmy scooped me up and talked sweet nothings to me while she walked through the house to the BR.Oh-Oh! She tricked me...! :o(
There was the little red cat toothbrush on the counter, all ready and armed! OMC How insulting to have some one open your mouth and stick that weapon in there and move it all around...So I bit the thing, every time it came on my teeth. Then when I thought she was done with that torture, she brings this bottle of stinky stuff and sprays it in my mouth! The Nerve! Since when do I need to kill germies in MY mouth...or use a breath wash for pets?! Yowl...then I gave her a nice foot massage, because she was brushing my furs...much more pleasant...Purrs came out of my throat! I have forgiven meowmy yet another time...

[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] Oh, I have been pawing meowmy and pawppy so much today...look at me! Play with me! Pet me! Hey I live here too, remember me?!
Ok then I got a long lap time whem meowmy was spending tons of what should have been cat time at the 'puter writing about my furbro, Pipo... Maybe I should have a pukey day...nah, I think I would be in trouble for that, and most of the other gross ways that kitties make themselves remembered...so I just go and paw and meow at meowmy...I did get a lot of laser light chase exercise, and some cottage cheese and some meat and lots of lap time when Pawppy took a big-man nap on the recliner...
Oh, so I am getting attention...and of course the food, water,and litter were taken care of...Oh, well some kitties fare much worse. My biggest complaint this day, is that there are no sun puddles to enjoy and to warm up my furs. So, right now I am having a curled up nap in the cozy kitty nest with Pipo. I do love him, he protects me from the big evil, (sometimes), dog-guy, he is fun to chase and to get chased by, and best of all, to take cozy naps with on rainy dreary days when the peoples are busy with their own stuff...
Purrs and Mews!
I'm glad I have a brother to play with too. Those laser light games are so much fun!

[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] It has been so nice and warm and sunny the past few days...even the windows are open! Huraay! This has brought out the bugs big time! Lots of fun for us, but not so much for meowmy! When I looked out into the yard, I saw that the double daffodils have begun blooming at the south side of the house, and the tiny regular shaped ones are starting their show at the north side of the house. Then I know that it really is warm! Everything is green now, but strangely rustly for this time of year. Meowmy says we need rain! In April! I thought this was the month for that...Oh well 29 more days for that...but since March was very dry there is a fire/burn ban and warning. Usually you only hear about that in the hot summer months. But it is also quite windy, so that only makes it worse. Someone in our area had a big problem when she tried to burn some yard waste...it made her yard a waste that's for sure, including her neighbors 2 sheds and lots of trees...and sadly 4 rabbits. Sorry, Easter Bunny, they couldn't get out of the smoke... :( I felt sad for their little girl owner.
(It reminded meowmy of the time a few years back when almost at the same time of year and in the same conditions (!), the neighbors of us had a barn fire which also traveled into out yard, ruining the new fence and 12 trees...)
So be careful all you people, fire is BAD!
But then people are swimming in excess rain and water at other parts of the country...go figure!
Meowmy's schedule was strange today, too. She got out the nasty sucking machine on Thursday! Usually she only uses that big monster on Fridays. She mumbled something about a holiday, tomorrow...Whatever. ( Meowmy cleans with other stuff on days when the big monster gets to stay in hiding)
And a stranger even came in my den, so I had to go into hiding for quite a while. Meowmy even managed to coax me out, but when this fix-it guy walked past to leave I did the vamoose! Meowmy said that fix-it guy had to fix our internet connection. Oh! Goody, now she can talk to all the pet peoples again! Yeah!
Today was April Foo'ls Day, and the radio guy played a nice trick on all his gullible listeners...about stringing a zipline for use of the public along our Linear path...HAW-HAW! Wait till tomorrow when they find out they've been had! MOL!!
Later of all the insults, she nabbed me and gave my teeth a brushing...UGH!
But I do love it when she gives my furs a going over after she finishes with the teeth!
Well, I am going to go and take a big nap, after I groom my furs into perfection...

Whenever meowmy gets out the broom to sweep up kitty litter, we come running to beg her to rub that big brush over our backs and necks...its kind of too big to do other areas, MOL!
If she ignores us or forgets...then we just get in her way, or bite the bristles, MOL!!

[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Meowmy was wondering why I don't make her a batch of Hot Cross Buns, since it is Easter! She used to get those , growing up in the Toronto area. Since I am a good kneader and bread maker she wonders why that item isn't on my list of talents!
She wonders even more, why she doesn't even see them in retail bakeries here where we now are living! Maybe there aren't enough humans from the British Isles here, since that is where they originate from, I think...
For those who may wish to know, they are buns with currents and or raisins in them and with a baked on cross design on the top. She can still get them if she goes to Canada at this time of year.
I guess I don't want to make them, because those raisins are bad for kitties...don't know about currants, though! MOL!
Hoppy Easter to efurryone of my kitty pals!

[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Today I got real curious about what meowmy was doing...(She was on the phone...but it has a really interesting wiggly and LONG cord), so I just had to get near her face. You see she was talking to someone/thing but I couldn't see who or what...
Well, she was leaning on the washing machine in the kitchen and the cord was out of my reach to play with, so I decided to join her at the makeshift 'desk'...Oops! When I jumped up I made a boo-boo and only my front paws landed on the top of the washer...the rest of me kind of slid away...into the pail of laundry on the floor! So there I was hanging half in and half out of that pail! OMC! So embarrassing! Well I carefully slid out of that thing and stalked off with my tail straight up in the air...after all I meant to do that!
And, well, I never did find out what was going on with that orange phone thing...
AND MUCH Later I helped meowmy with her 'puter stuff by butting up on her arms, getting in her lap and sticking my head up near the keyboard to help dictate this notation...and mewsing!
April 6th 2010 8:05 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Hooray! The big scowling bunny-dude that was I has been taken out of his misery! So now there is a nice plain little me, staring out into Catsterland! Thank you, Meowmy!
Yesterday I got distracted from trying to get at the phone cord. We still use a land line for security and for long distance to Canada and Europe, because meowmy says that is more economical...whatever! I just like to get at that very long orange springy thing that she calls the cord.And sometimes I can hear voices not of my furmily if I get real close to meowmy's face when she feels the need to remove the hand part from off of the wall...
Well there was an awful lot of holding on to that thing, yesterday and today...and I suspect in the next few days, too.
Meowmy got all mushy and had leaky face windows after that 1st session in which I tried to distract her...MOL!
She told my cat-dad that her sister couldn't make the planned visit to our den. (Secretly I am glad, because she would have brought in another dog-guy...)
My auntie wasn't feeling too good so with a lot of providential forethought she took my dog-cousin to his good neighbour,(which is like being on vacation for him), packed a bag and went to the ER...
The reason she hadn't been feeling too good was that her heart was not beating properly- far too slowly- so after some tests and things, she needs to have a pacemaker. OMC! That is too much! Meowmy is beside herself with worry!
Since there are some 325 miles between them,and the Border,she will stay home for now, and then if needed, go over there to give a hand.
Then unfurbro will have to take care of us 2 kitties...which he knows how to do, but we almost always have to remind him...you know...our box is needing a scoop or two, the food is getting so we can see the bottom of the bowl, and there is a cat hair in our water... I worry that he may not want to help with keeping our toothies nice and sweet smelling...MOL! At least the dog-guy will be with meowmy, she always takes him along when she goes to her sister's place.
Well, I shall have to get more details of this affair so I can mew them to you all.
If she goes away, she won't be able to mew or bark at any of the Cat/dogster pals, because my auntie doesn't have internet at her house. :~(
April 7th 2010 2:08 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Well my Auntie is feeling better. Meowmy has gotten on the ring-talker thing a few more times, and again late this pm. Auntie has had a pacemaker put in, and seems to be OK. Not much pain and can tell the difference in heart rate, already!
Meowmy suggested that she go to her after she is discharged in a day or two, but she said No Way!
So I guess, there won't be a substitute kitty care giver for now. Good news for all! Will give updates if needed...
I gave meowmy a love bite when she petted me, I was so happy...MOL! I haven't done that for a long time... I just wanted to let her know that I need her so much...Who would I make bread on if she was gone, and who would wash the dog's ears if he is also gone? BTW: I gave the dog-guy a good grooming, when he came in from being out in the pouring rain! Aren't I a good Kitty?! MOL!

[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Hey, I thought it was spring?! OMC! I saw snow, today...and there weren't any sun puddles to warm my furs...What's up with that?!
Oh, well, at least there was a nice new box to get in and claim as mine by biting it.And that was after Meowmy brushed my teeth,I think biting the cardboard is like a human's flossing, only this is better because it gives the whole tooth a polish!

[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] Ah, I love it when I make surpawses for meowmy; first thing she finds in the morning...usually by stepping in some juicy, yucky puddle of hairball barf! Yup, I did it again...I massacre my little mouse toys and eat some of them...(hey isn't that what you are supposed to do with mice, if you are a kitty?), and then I choke on the stuff and whoops! Up comes a big barfie! Present for my beloved Meowmy! MOL!!
Of course whenever I do this barfy stuff, then Meowmy watches my evfurry move, but I was eating, drinking and behaving as any properly trained kitty should... OK; Get this Meowmy: I am a cat, I lick my furs and Pipo's too, and sometimes the dog-guy's...and I chews on those little mousie dudes, so then I just gotta have a good barf now and then!
And then while meowmy knew the dog was in the house she heard the flap-slapping noises the doggy door makes...and ...I pranced into the kitchen from the sunporch! I used the doggy doors, if you please...to go and sit in the very huge sunpuddles in that room!
I wish she wouldn't keep that place off limits, so that I and Pipo could go there once in a while! But she says it isn't catproofed in there, and she is worried that we will go through the 2nd door, to the great outdoors! OMC! I want to be like Christopher Columbus and be the great explorer kitty! But of course she didn't know that...Later I went in and out again MOL! I wonder why my brofur, Pipo doesn't come with me...What great adventures we could have!
Purrs to all and to all a good night!

I have to play with those...pawlease?! Well when I had a chance to give them a sniff, meowmy caught me and tried to put a headband with stars on it around my ears...OMC! No way! Will she ever stop dreaming up ways to torture me?I even had to contort myself and put my rear legs and feet through the thing to try and prevent its application to my noble kitty head! (MOL!) Well after I convinced her to give up with that silly stuff, she still didn't let me go...NO! She carried me to the torture chamber where that brush thing attacks my teeth! HEY! And then the yucky spray stuff followed...by then I was FED-UP! I relented somewhat and let her brush and comb my furs...which I was already covering the floor with...but no , no purrs, this time...HA! I even decided it would be more fun to give that fur brush a licking, too. So I grabbed it and bit it...and then OOPS! I got carried away, and bit meowmy's arm. Sorry, meowmy. I had to let you know that even though I love and crave attention...enough is enough!! At least my mouth was clean when I bit her...and no I didn't bite hard enough to break the skin...I was only giving a warning...which meowmy respected...she picked up Pipo and began cleaning his teeth!! MOL!!
April 13th 2010 8:22 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] Meowmy was watching me lashing my tail, when I was perturbed...that does not mean pleasure, let me assure you!
Sometimes it lies on the floor and only the end is twitching. This means I am deep in thought about perhaps giving a good chase.
Sometimes half of my tail is straight up, and the rest of it goes straight down...like a hairpin. Meowmy sees me do this when I am in the zoomies mode!
Sometimes my flag is looking like a bottle brush...OMC! Then I am really angry or scared! I even scare myself once in a while, chasing after my little mousies...
Sometimes my tail is straight up, perhaps with a little bendy in it. It may be still or waving like a flag in a gentle breeze...this is my true pleasure meter...or better said, my measure of pleasure!
Meowmy likes seeing that kind of tail the best. I wonder why, MOL!

Then I gave her a big head bonk on her elbow...so she has to stop doing the 'puter stuff...then instead of my usual bread making activity on her lap...I started to dig with both paws - under her arm! She HAD to stop being on the 'puter then! And rub my head, and pet my furs and tickle under my chin...Purr, Purr! Finally! It sure took a while to get my message through!
Then I got to jump up on the frontdoor where meowmy shines and wiggles the laser light. Such fun! And I chased Pipo all around the house, and we wrestled, too for a while...Whew! I'm all tuckered out! I need to take a long catnap in my nest.

from behind the door.
Rags on a stick;
Wiggly and wet.
Now that's a neat trick!
Those rags are giving the floor a lick!
Meowmy said, 'Stay away.'
'I can't use your help.'
But I wanted to play
With the wiggly mop...
OMC! My feet are now wet!
So away I did hop...
I shall have to catch
Mr Mop some other time.
So now I will just watch,

[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] I have a warm bed,
On which to rest-
My weary head.
Not a regular bed!
Not plushy soft,
Its hard instead.
Like I said,
I like this bed.
After I am fed,
I will walk on over,
With my soft kitty tread.
Meowmy has said:
'Your bed is hot'
But I cannot make bread,
On this, my bed!
When I lay on my bed,
I can look on ahead.
My perch is also my bed...
I can see birds out the window,
Some of them are red.
When it is winter,
I see kids on their sled.
I can feel dread,
When from here,
I see strangers be lead
Through my den, near my bed.
Who thinks he is well-bred,
Will try to sit here
On top of my bed.
Meowmy sits near me,
And sees my furs shed
All over this bed.
Well, by now since you've read,
About my most special bed;
Use the brains in your head
To guess what I use for a bed!
It is black and hard and quite warm, and Meowmy sits beside it a lot...esp when she does that Catster stuff. It stands about 18'' high, and can roll like a cart...
I wish meowmy would put a cushion on it...but she told me no-way...

[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] I was so happy today...Meowmy put new batteries in the laser light! OMC! That makes the spot so much brighter and more fun to chase! I almost hit my head on the doorknob when I jumped up on the door to try and catch that moving target...Then it went to the edge of the mat at the front door...and then I couldn't see it anymore...so I pulled the mat up and looked under it...not there either...hey, I think meowmy just tricked me into doing something silly!
After a rest I was ready to get playing again...but the laser was gone. My furmily was eating dinner...so I had to make my own games...
Dog-guy had a couple of chewy sticks lying around...so...I hid myself under meowmy's long skirt. She felt this strange sensation and I was pawing at the fabric, to find an exit for my paw...I was going to steal and hide the dog-guy's chew stick! I had it under the skirt, but dog-guy saw the movements, and since he is about as curious and nosy as any kitty, his torpedo snoot came under the skirt, too...and he took back his chew stick! Busted! Meowmy was getting worried that perhaps her skirt was going to get ripped by all the kitty and doggy gaming going on underneath her.
I shall have to try this game of stealing the dog chew sticks again. I wonder why he is so eager to get them...maybe when I get to snitch one I should try to chew it, too. Would it help to keep my teeth clean?! MOL!
So then I had to just play good old peek-a-boo under the skirt!
No wonder meowmy says there is never a dull moment when you have kitties!

[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Today I heard meowmy talking with a stranger! OMC! I thought you weren't supposed to talk with strangers. Well I am a good behaved kitty son, so I went and hid, under the couch. I do NOT like strangers!
Well, then this dude went in and out of the house, to confuse me, I thought he was gone...so I came out...but then I had to run away, again. Several times...He was trying to confuse me! Bad stranger!
Then he took a bunch of noisy clumping steps into our dungeon. Oh how I cowered under the couch!
He banged and clanged with tools and such, went up and down the stairs some more, yacked with my meowmy - Hey, meowmy! That's a stranger! - and then he left. PHEW! I was scared of that dude, stomping around in my den and in the dungeon. I do not ever try to go down there myself...it is dark and dank! We had to go down there once in a tornado warning, and when I got out, I was so fluffed up in fear! Don't want to get stuck in there! Pipo tries to lurk around the door if it is open ,but not me...
Then I heard meowmy say at supper that there have to be more invasive dudes coming to do more noisy things in the dungeon. For 3 hours! Oh, I had better get a comfy spot ready under the couch. It will be a long morning!
All this fuss, just so as we can have some sweet and crystal clear 'Earth Ale'...! MOL!

[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Well the repair man came again...and invaded my den-space. At first I was hiding under the couch, like I always do for strangers...then, when he went outside to get supplies, I came out to investigate. So I was sitting on the CPU, beside meowmy when the repairman-dude came back inside...I felt scared but still curious. So I stayed there, but crouched low...Then he was making some strange noises down in the dungeon. (Pulling pipes trough some holes?)
I got really curious, then. But not so that I wanted to amble over to where he was. I just sat up on my back haunches like when a dog begs. That way I was taller, and was able to get a glimpse of his clothes when he was in the kitchen... Meowmy was gawking at me with a big grin on her face; she thought I was being so cute and brave...
But then he started with a noisy drill...oh-oh, I was out of there back to the couchy-cave!
Later, when he was back down in the dungeon, Pipo and I both decided to be brave together, and we sauntered over to the dungeon's entrance. There we were lurking, until meowmy decided that if we got up enough bravery, we would be down there with him! MOL!
Eventually, the repair-dude said he was done. Yes! Now we can have our crystal clear, sweet and fresh Earth Ale! A great way for us to celebrate Earth Day! With the best the earth has to offer! Earth Ale!
Oh yeah, repair-dude also brought in some earth from outside so we could enjoy that on the kitchen floor. We were trying to sniff and sample it before meowmy washed it away...

Meowmy has discovered that I like to eat potato chips...so much so that I stole one out from under Pipo's nose, MOL!
But its too bad that meowmy knows those aren't too good for me...
Well then it got to be toothbrush time! Torture time! Fight meowmy time!
Meowmy got everything ready before she picked me up. Then she put me on her lap and started to brush...and I let her! No struggling, no biting, OMC! Then when she started to brush my furs, (after the teeth were done), I stayed right there and purred. Meowmy thinks this is a sweet tooth victory...sweet to not have a fight, sweet to get the job done and sweet that I purred!

The softest spot I have yet to find is the jelly bellies of my pawrents...pawppy's being the best! MOL! But pawppy, usually doesn't like that...so off I go to find meowmy! I hope that she will be napping in the recliner or on the couch...then I will quietly sneak up and walk onto that nice soft belly...and do the Minko Belly Dance! Who cares that this sport is usually done by half naked ladies...I want to do it, too...but I keep my furs on, and keep 4 on the floor as it were...the floor being meowmy's belly! MOL! OMC! Since she got sick and had several surgeries...her belly is a bit flabby and soft! And the best part is, that now she actually lets me do this belly dancing...because at first, she wouldn't even let me near her belly...she kept a pillow on it.
I am glad she feels so much better...that was a few years ago...and I am glad that she is still able to be a good meowmy for me and Pipo. (And I hope for a long time...)

But since it had a thick string on it, meowmy keeps it in the closet for playtime, (and then puts it away for our safety...).
Well, we both got excited and went after the string! I jumped up on the room divider and tried to climb to the highest point for a good grabbing spot! Hey, meowmy moved the string again! So I had to chase it some more, until I managed to grab it. Then I got all tangled up in it! Meowmy said to pawppy: 'Look, I have caught me a Catfish!'
That was so much fun! Then she gave us some catnip...and I ate mine all up and then went on the hunt to see where Pipo and his ration were, so I could steal his! MOL!! He usually leaves most of it, he isn't quite as nuts about it as me...but today, Hey! He was lying on his pile...Busted!

[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] OMC! When Meowmy looked at her email this morning, there was a notice that I was a DDP, for today OMC! Fame!
Meowmy said to pawppy, OMC! This always seems to happen on my busy days, as she was going to be on a road trip to collect my unfurbro who has finished school for the year. Yeah! Another person to beg to play with!
I have been strutting all around meowmy this evening, purring and mewing and kneading on her leg, then getting in her lap. But then I got too frisky, and I gave her a bit of a hard love nip! Oops! She placed me back on the floor...said something about fame going to my head and being over stimulated!
So I strutted over to the dog-guy and purred at him and head bonked him and washed out his ears a couple of times...MOL! Giving him a grooming, so he will be more handsome as he has his #8 woofday, tomorrow!
I want to purr my thanks to evefur who sent concats, prezzies, etc. All much appawsiated!

[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] OMC! There is a big suitcase on the floor here and lots of yakking amongst the humans here about some kind of trip. And Pawppy was googling for spawsial maps...OOH! I am worried that they are all going away!
But when I went to examine the suitcase, It only smelled like my unfurbro. HEY! Didn't he just come home from school yesterday. I was enjoying the extra attention! He is going away again! So soon! Bummer :-( !
Oh well, the comforting thing is that the rest of my furmily will stay here, and in a few days, unfurbro will be back here again! YEAH! Sometimes I worry too much!

[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Yesterday, while meowmy was putering on catster, I was pestering her with head bonks, mews and pawings. So she bent over to pet me, and then went back to the puter.So I repeated the procedure...and she responded with more headrubbing and pets. Then I heard this big loud yelp, scream was more like it! I jumped away and was so spooked that my tail was all afluff! OMC! Meowmy was whining that I had given her a very big love nip! On her elbow!So I decided that it would be better to leave her alone for a while...
OMC! Pipo purred to me that dog-guy and meowmy are going away! Hiss! Who will play with me and give me catnip whenever I beg for it! Pawppy has never given us any of it, because he said that that would make him another object of my begging routine! OMC! I didn't know I was that bad?!
Well, Pawppy and one of my unfurbros are not going away, so the food, water and litter boxes will be taken care of!
I will miss meowmy's pettings and laser games, though! And who will I be able to pester with head bonks and love bites!?
Meowmy's sister has no internet, so There won't be any of my purry mews for a while. I am sure there will be plenty, later!!
Goodbye to all..for a while, probably next weekend or a bit longer...

[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Yesterday, the dog-guy and meowmy came back from wherevfur they had escaped to. I was so happy that I mewed and paced back and forth...and mewed and purred some more. Funny how as soon as the object of your love returns, you forget to be annoyed and jealous of their being gone, forgive them and start all aver with giving them all of your mewnistrations and purrs about all that went on while they were in never-never land! And start right away to beg for the nip...and the pets and the laser toy! Don't even give them time to unpack all their stuff! MOL! I own my meowmy and she has to do as I ask her to! MOL!!
Since dog-guy was gone, that meant that some of the usual nest places had gone with him...and upon his return, so did those soft and cozy nests! So Pipo and I jumped right into them and catjacked them from dog-guy...MOL!
So now meowmy has spent a lot of 'puter time catching up with the Catster cats and our furends.
And I got a good fix of the nip stuff to make up for not having it fur 4 days! Humpf!
Meowmy is also keping track of the hockey stuff. OMC! I would have fun chasing that black thing, and putting it into one of those nets so that I could get it stopped long enough for me to bite and kill it...like a mouse! I bite on evfurry thing...Meowmy wants the Canadian teams to win their series so that the finals would be 2 teams from Canada, but I don't think her wish will come true...at all! Too bad meowmy!
One not so nice thing that came back with meowmy was somedog she calls Wiener Schnitzel. OMC! Who on earth is that?? And What on earth is that?! It is big and long and striped. It has a tail, little legs and a big snoot! Also some pretty long ears that flop down, even to the floor! Huh?! It smells like a dog dude that I remember from a long time ago...but no way! It doesn't come close in appearance! And what does Wiener Schnitzel have to do with it anyways?
Well meowmy had to explain...because she could tell that I was a bit perturbed with this new interloper. She said it was a draft dodger! WHAT! Did she mean draft dogger? Nope! She said it was meant to go in front of doors to keep drafts out...but because it came from my dog-guy's cousin's house, it smelled like him. Meowmy crocheted it many years ago, and now my auntie doesn't need it anymore...so Meowmy took it home with her to give it a new lease on life, so to speak...Its name is Wiener Schnitzel, because it is a type of 'wiener dog'...hah-hah! MOL!
So far though us kitties have been polite to him...we could rip him apart...with tooth and nail! Pipo could give it a few cat slaps to keep it humble...but I haven't heard it bark or whine or growl...and our regular dog-guy doesn't even give it the time of day!! MOL! So I guess we will just have to get used to his presence! Whatevfur!
Anyways I am glad that meowmy is home, and didn't go to Europe with her sister...then she would have been gone furevfur!

[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Well today I honoured my Meowmy...I put lots of my furs on her clothes, and favorite chair..when she got up fur a moment and didn't put the chair cover back...
My Pawppy brought in this huge basket and put it on the dining room table. So of course, I, being a normally curious kitty, had to jump up there and make sure it was safe to be there...MOL! OMC! It was the best bunch of flowers...so I called my brofur, and we got right t0 work. Eating the plants! MOL!Soon there were bits and pieces of red, white and blue and green all over the place. Meowmy came out of the shower and...she was not a nice Meowmy for that brief moment! She hissed and swished her arms at me and Pipo! OH! I guess we were not supposed to eat that...Well meowmy hung it up somewhere else in the house, since it was too cold, (28F), to put outside...
But, later, I think she forgave us...we got some yogurt. And in the evening as we were hovering nearby to get the best spot on her lap...she even gave us a bit of cheese! Yum!
Hope everfur had a great Meowmy's Day!
Purrs and mews!

[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] My meowmy gets our toothbrushes ready before she gets us to torture us...the dog-guy's, too. So when I came in there and she wasn't quite ready, I jumped on the counter to take a look...then I jumped down and reached up from below with one of my clever little paws! And...I stole a toothbrush! Down it came! onto the bathmat! MOL! Toothpaste on the cabinet doors, and on the mat, too...MOL! More payback for meowmy! That toothpaste is so gooey and hard to get out of stuff like plush fabric of bathmats...and pretty hard to get off of the wood ...She said some interesting things, not to be repeated due to their sensitive nature...I think it was dog-guy's brush that was waiting at the edge. Hey! What does she expect, such a tempting red object just appearing over the edge, I had to get it where I could better see it. Besides it is fun to see what happens to things, (and Meowmy), when you test the theory of gravity! Meowmy told me that I had better not attack the toothbrushes anymore...Hah! She hopes! MOL!!

[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] I always want to be where my brofur is, and to know what he is doing, even to do exactly the same things as he does...not constantly, but enough to make a pest of myself...MOL! Today, meowmy was trying to nap. I swear I did not know that Pipo was under the throw...because that is not his typical behavior! Well I guess I jumped right on top of him and started to make some bread and digging to China to look for a different bread recipe...Hey! The bread dough was alive! OMC! It was Pipo, and he was not a happy kitty. He just stalked out of there and went to another nest, even though meowmy had already put me on the other side of herself. So I decided that I had to be over there with him...bye meowmy, I will cuddle some other time! OMC! Did I hear meowmy call me a Bratty-Catty?!

[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ] While I was in the bathroom snoopervising meowmy's activities, there, I saw that the drawer was open. There were all these shiny, slinky and sparkly little things in there. When I touched them with my inquisitive paws, the sounds that stuff made was very intriguing...and tempting. So I worked away, until I snagged something long and interesting. My teeth had to help a bit, too. Then I was off..with my new found loot!
I am now known as the household jewel thief! MOL!!
Later I tried to repeat this new and fun game, but meowmy had me figured out...and shut the drawer so I couldn't access the good stuff! Shucks! Busted yet again! One day I shall have to figure out how to outsmart her...MOL!
Purrs and Mews!

[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] I can 'sit pretty'! Like when meowmy says for the dog-guy to sit and beg.
Meowmy makes corn on the cob by roasting it in the husk. This makes the husks quite crunchy and brittle. A very different texture than 'raw husks.
Anyways, some of the husk pieces reminded meowmy of long feathers, so she tried to get my attention by tickling my nose with the end of a husk leaf. I was 'captured'! A new toy! I almost could grab it...but she held it just out of reach...so I sat up to bat at it with both paws at the same time. It looked like I was conducting an orchestra! MOL!
After a bit of more corn husk teasing, meowmy gave the whole piece to me. She wanted to see what I would do with it...NOTHING! It wasn't wiggling anymore, didn't taste like much because all the freshness was roasted out of it, and I really didn't feel like putting it in my mouth to carry it anywhere...afterall, I had been napping when all this started! Back to nap time fur me!

Evfur day I try to snag that whistle out of its place in the catchall on the kitchen island. Meowmy finds it in the strangest of places! I don't know if I could blow it...and then dog guy would come running up, because that is how meowmy uses it...but I do like to chomp down on that cord...It is like a big long wormy thing that is coiled up in the catchall, until I snag my paw on it and release it...to its full length all over the floor. It makes a nice rattly sound when I drag it around! MOL!

[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Today I had a major attack of the zoomies.
Meowmy didn't even see me start with a toy as I usually do. Just a streak of kitty flying by, and away again. Up the stairs, down the stairs. A good meyowl along the way, helped, too!
Meowmy didn't even know which one of us was doing the zoom-zoom!
So when it was quiet, she went searching...and she found me...all fluffed up! I had spooked myself! Then meowmy saw that my eyes were watering a bit...maybe I had bumped my self when I tried to hide from my zoomie imaginary chaser. She couldn't see anything, though. Later this evening, my eyes look fine. Good!
Zoomies are kind of fun, but not zoom-booms! MOL!
May 18th 2010 7:41 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] The dryer is a favorite place for me when it is on. So warm on top. Meowmy put together a couple of boxes for me to hide in up there. I am glad that this dryer cat warmer is in the kitchen so I can make use of the free heat. Meowmy is glad that it is there, because we have a dungeon for a basement. with bare rocks, ugly floors and tons of other horrors.Odd that neither me or Pipo are trying to go down there, usually kitties want to explore those types of places...
Anyways, when meowmy opened the dryer, of course the free heat stops, too. So I almost scored a nice warm spot inside the dryer...complete with warm and cozy soft bedding! Hey!
Busted! I am always getting busted! Not fair! But meowmy said that it was a very unsafe place for me. Imagine if it got started with me inside?! Or if I got locked inside it, even if it wasn't on?
Well, OK, Meowmy, you won that argument!
I'm off to find some other place to sleep, probably the pile of clean and folded laundry! MOL!

[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] What is going on around here?!
Meowmy moved our cat carriers from their regular place, put the doors on, and then just left them in the middle of the room. Not back as an apartment complex for me and Pipo to hide in.
Well, thinking back on past experience...those carriers almost always mean a trip to the ...shh...(vet)...shh. OMC! Not again. Didn't we just go there about a year ago?! Why so soon again. I am not sickly or doing odd things...maybe meowmy wants to show me off to the nice ladies who work in that place. They didn't get all mad at me when I pooed in there, once when I was scared. And they didn't get mad when I tried to bite them another time when they gave me one of those nasty pokes, in the skin behind my ears...What does she need to show me off for, anyways. Those ladies already know all about me. They always have to pry my mouth open to see if I have teeth in there. Sheesh! Don't they already know that from when I tried the bite trick?!
Well, maybe meowmy wants them to admire my teeth, now that she does that awful brushing of them, almost every day! Then I want to go back home, as soon as possible, OK? Remember that, meowmy. No long gossip sessions with anybody there...Just get me in and out! I prefer my den here much better!

[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ] Well, today Meowmy made me get in the cat carrier. That is not my idea of fun...esp getting a car ride...can't even get out and walk around to explore the vehicle...
Well, I let meowmy know that I am a very good yowler, and have a wide variety of songs to carry on with. 20 minutes worth at least! MOL!
When we got to the vet office, Meowmy could hardly see me...I had gotten the cat cushion/mat all scratched up, and bunched up under myself, and a big corner of it was covering my face. (Trying to hide, just like Hazel Lucy...) And I had also ripped a lot of it to shreds, I was in a panic in that carrier, I think. Then, Oh the shame of it, Meowmy saw that the cushion wasn't only ripped up, it was wet...OMC! Wet with cat-pee. I just couldn't help myself, I was so scared. And there wasn't even any cat litter in there...So meowmy took the carrier apart, and lifted me out. All of my paws and bottom furs were sopping wet! How humiliating!
Well, then the vet lady took me into the back room and gave me a bath! OMC! That was the end! I shall never be able to look Pipo in the eye again. So embarrassing.
The cat cushion/mat, had to go in the trash! Later when meowmy looked at the bill, she saw that there was a fee for the disposal of biologically hazardous material! MOL! That will teach meowmy to take me in the car...
The vet lady said I hadn't changed my weight, so that was good.
She put 2 very sharp pointy things under my skin...OW! 1st a bath and then 2 pokes! The nerve!
Then she told meowmy that my teeth were nice and clean. OK, meowmy, Thanks at least for that part of my life...no more trips to the vet for now!
I dropped off a lot of my furs, there, too. all over the floor and meowmy. Vet lady said it was from stress! Well I was under stress, wasn't I?! MOL!
Then when I got home I had to explain to Pipo why there was a newspaper in the carrier, instead of the nice soft mat...More humiliation. And the dog-guy just wouldn't leave me alone with his big sniffer-snoot!
OK! Now I have to go and hide in some warm place until my furs are dry and my sanity is restored!

[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Today was so much better than yesterday!
No being stuffed in a cat carrier, let alone going to the vet, and all of the bad stuff that happened yesterday. I shall try to just erase that from my memory bank!
Today was nice and quiet, just the way I like it.
Meowmy did catch me off guard with that noisy fur sucking machine...but she does that a lot, so I just deal with it by hiding...
Part of the cleaning up today included putting the cat carriers away...which means, taking the doors off, putting soft bedding in them, and making a 2 story kitty apartment-hideout out of them. A much better use than using them for scary stuff like car rides to vets...
And meowmy had some new treats for us...which we devoured...and one of us barfed up, later...since neither one of us confessed about the perpetrator, I guess those treats will no longer be on our menu! MOL! But they were yummy! Meowmy actually thinks that it was me...because I seem to be the most sensitive to things...and do the most barfies here. Whatever!
There was a big thunderstorm here, this afternoon, but I was already in a hidey hole, asleep, so it didn't bother me too much.
I had some interesting views of a contorted meowmy, as she tried to get the bolt undone prior to putting on a new toilet seat...the one side of the toilet is very tight to the bathtub...and of course that was the one that was stuck! That bathroom, there always seems to be something or other going on in there. All of the humans here go in and out of there so much...And often I have to remind them to let me in with them...because I like to be a nosey parker and watch all that goes on...even in there...afterall, that is where meowmy brushes my furs, and I don't want to miss a chance to have my furs groomed!
I had some yummy catnip, too, but I had to remind meowmy to get it off the shelf...
Home is truly my most favorite place to be!

[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] Well, Meowmy is at it again...picture torture that is...I gave her a good piece of my mind as well as my teeth! MOL! But since she only put a bandana on me it wasn't all that bad, and she used toys to get my attention. It was Pipo who was not going to have anything to do with it. I think he will get his own spawsial session, tomorrow!
Meowmy needs to get out our Maple Leaf flag, and hang it outside. Monday, May 24 is Victoria Day. In honour of Queen Victoria's birthday, many years ago. Since Canada is having many ties and links to the British, they celebrate a lot of the same major holidays. Meowmy misses this day. She has to wait a whole 'nother week for the US holiday, which is Memorial Day. That day is very much more solemn than the Canadian day coming up! So I guess that meowmy will get all camera happy again...
Meowmy sees that the gift shop has an American flag but there isn't a Canadian one. Our national Birthday is July 1st, Canada Day. So please gift shop managers, could you get one for us Canadian members?! Pawlease!...and Thank You!

[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ] Well, meowmy put up 3 nice pics of me in my Victoria Day attire...She thought that I was a bit more easygoing regarding this getting 'dressed' stuff, but then how come that she put up 5 pics for Pipo! I am jealous! MOL!
Cooper, who is a pal of my dog-guy furbling, helped meowmy put on the falling flag decorations. Thank you! I am tempted to give them chase...
Meowmy changed some of our hidey holes around, at least the ones in boxes...and under the biggest one she put a real sheepskin that used to be in one of the cars. It is nice and warm and soft. I like to maul it, and bite it...One day recently, meowmy heard some strange scratching sounds coming from there. She looked and I was digging myself a nest...under it. I like to be covered, cozy and out of sight! MOL!
Right now I am trying to figure out, how best to get under the tablecloth, MOL!
I was also rather naughty...I was eying some of the 'puter wires...(USB cords, etc...) and contemplating how I could enjoy a chew of them...they look like worms...MOL!
But meowmy pished me, loudly, which scared the dog-guy, who barked and chased me into another of my hidey holes!

[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] OMC! What a busy bunch of days...Meowmy spent so much time trying to find her way around the new catster, that she didn't have time fur me...Boo - hiss! Well she did, but not to write a diary entry!
Well summer has come. Full blast. Hot and muggy! The AC is going again, after a long winter vacation.
And I saw some really weird stuff happening today.
Guys and gals this is no lie! It is way above 80 degrees, closer to 90, and it was snowing! OMC! SNOW in summer?! I could even see where some of it had gathered into a little 'drift'! I wanted to go outside and try to catch some of these hot weather snowflakes!Not only was it snowing in the summer, It was coming out of a cloudless sky!
Well all those fluffy flakes were playing games with Pipo and me...it was a huge squall of cottonwood fluffs! Maybe now we can do some good bird watching from our condo, because they will want to line their nests with the stuff...MOL!
PS: Meowmy was at the Oncologist, yesterday as part of her busyness...but PTL it was good news. Soon she will reach the 4 year mark of her diagnoses. I am glad she is not needing any treatment...that was not fun! She can stay away from there for another 6 months...Yeah!

Thanks to the HQ peeps fur thinking of us and how hungry we were...kitties are almost always needing to eat, right?!
And thanks, too fur making a start at fixing some of what we thought were fleas and ticks on the new site ...maybe after they get done listening and paying good attention to us, we will find it more catster furendly...Hope so!
Meowmy and pawppy are fixing to have a pawrty fur one of my unfurbros. He just finished High School...at the top of his class! Concats to him!All the burgers and hotdogs will come in handy! As well as the deserts, esp, the icecream. He LOVES that stuff...! MOL!
When he has his graduation affair, I shall have to resist the great temptation to play with his golden cords...the cords of honor, the symbol to set him apart, (Along with many others), that he was a member of the National Honor Society. Those cords are so long and dangly...They would be a wonderfur kitty toy!
I shall have fun ordering a big refrigerated truck to send off the meats and other treats to my wonderfur pals.

[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] Well, we had an memorable Memorial Day! A very wet one! and noisy with the thunder! Not the drum thunder that you would expect from parades. They were mostly rained out!Even the President's!!
Unfurbro had to cancel his plans to go to a pool pawrty...
And the rains came tumbling down!
And made floods, and washed out roads and made others into rivers, and put lots in the dark!
2" and more came down in a short time.
No sun puddles for us!
Oh well, nothing can stop us from remembering why we have this day. Not even bad weather.
No BBQs either! Good thing the kitty pantry was full of all the burgers and weiners and treats...
Thanks again to all those who have sent us these gifts.
I needed to go off my CPU perch to go and eat or something...but somehow I wasn't getting there very fast. My back leg kept missing the pawhold and so I was going up and down in my attempts to get going...meowmy had the gall to giggle! I looked like when a film gets put back and forth from forward to reverse, very quickly...jerky and all that. Eventually meowmy took pity on me because she was worried that I might get caught in something and get hurt...but when she put me on the floor so I could move better, I glared at her and stalked off. Doesn't she know that kitties mean to do evfurry thing that they do?! Even the oopsies! MOL!

(The phone is above the washer and dryer, in the kitchen.) And she was on that ringing buzzy thing fur sooo long, so I climbed out of the box and gave her some head bonks, and some rubs on the papers she was trying to read...they sounded so rustly when she was moving them around to find the info she wanted...I do like to play with paper...And then I discovered the cord! Like a wiggly worm or snake! MOL! I had a good chew in it...to try and add my two cents worth into meowmy's conversation...well, she had to keep picking me up to move me out of the way and out of her face...MOL! What a great way to get some kitty attention and meowmy time! She has noticed that before...we won't be around but when she gets on the phone, esp the land line, we come out of the woodwork to be with her. How dare she spend time talking to someone we can't see or smell...so we have to remind her that WE are live and active...and needing HER attention, undivided! MOL!!

[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Stinky Minky is one of my nick names...but tonight that was reserved fur my dog-guy furbling. He had to have a bath, and while he was still damp.he just was a stinky-minky! Wet dog doesn't smell too delish!
Imagine. he needed a bath...but meowmy said he wasn't dirty! He didn't need soap...just lots of cool water...he was overheated. From one of his dogventures. Glad he didn't shake his wet furs off on me! MOL!
Earlier tonight, I had fun with the laser light. Meowmy shone it into a bookcase, and I was figuring out is I should jump in there.So while I was watching the little red dot, I sat up on my hind legs, just like when the dog-guy is begging!Meowmy wishes she had a video camera to make recordings of the things that me and my furblings do. Would she always have it ready to use?! MOL!
I also had fun, lurking around Pipo when he didn't want to eat his heartworm chew medicine...I would love a 2nd helping! But meowmy didn't think that would be such a good idea! At least meowmy doesn't have to force me to eat mine! I am a good kitty!

[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] OMC! There are splatters of somefurs blood on the wall! It is a big mystery as to who may have had a disaster upon their furby or body! Well, meowmy checked me: negative! Good!
Checked Pipo: Negative! Good!
Checked Dog-guy: Negative! I guess that's good...MOL!
Checked all the peeps: Negative! So who then does this blood belong to and why is it there? If DNA testing was easily done and not so expensive...maybe that would have solved this mystery. Well at least no-one is bleeding to death from some owie!
Must have been a 'not-me' visiting our den! MOL!

[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] OMC! There was such a scary storm last night. Made the dog-guy so very angry. He seems to think thunder is a loudly stomping intruder...I must, too, because I just went to one of my dark hidey holes. Hazel Lucy would have been proud of me, because meowmy didn't even know where I was.
Later on when it was light, the rain gauge had 3.5" of rain...and the field across the street was more of a lake. Didn't see any fish, ducks or whales there, though. No one was boating on it either...MOL!
I bet there will be lots of new-crop skeeters later on. Good thing I just had the heartworm meds.
This evening meowmy watched me bully Pipo off the condo perch...and of course then I had to go and see where he had gone to in case that was a place I needed to be, myself! MOL!!
One good thing about last night...meowmy totally forgot to brush any of our pearly whites...Hee-hee! MOL!
June 7th 2010 7:57 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Today was lovely, lots of sunpuddles in open windows, yums in the kitchen, games to play with my furbling and furmily.
I got some more meats and treats from pals, until the freebies went away...no more free lunches!
But the best, was when meowmy took stuff out of a big box, and also a smaller one. She also had to move some other boxes and stuff. (She says she will be glad when my unfurbros go off to school again, because the boxes of stuff are theirs...)
Anyways, this big box was on the floor, and meowmy hears this squeaky chirp, and then she can just see a grey waving flag out the top...must have been my handsome kitty whip!
So I was just having heaps of fun, jumping in and out of this box. The wall of it were about 2.5' tall, so I was well hidden in there, esp with the open flaps.Pipo came to check it out, too, but I let him know that I had staked my claim to this box...
Meowmy want back to her chores, and sort of forgot about me...I can be so quiet, otherwise what good would hiding be?
Then she came back to the room where the box was on the floor, and all of a sudden I jumped out like a Jack in the box...meowmy had bumped into the box, and I was disturbed and had to get out. Well, usually I am the one who gets spooked about stuff, but this time I spooked meowmy. She shrieked and about had a heart attack or something! MOL!! Her fright even made me get all fluffed up! So I guess I still got spooked as usual...Then meowmy had to sit down, she was laughing so hard! She had totally forgotten that I was in that box!
Well at the end of this fun day, I am needing my beauty rest...or I guess I should say, my handsome rest! MOL!!

[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] OMC! I got to be DDP, today! MIAOW! Thank You Diary peeps!
I'm all ready now to have a great day! The windows are already open and there was a big moth on the screen! Gotta go now..boxes are calling to me...
June 8th 2010 9:01 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Meowmy says being a DDP has gone to my head...I went and attacked Pipo...for no other reason than that he was chasing his tail. Since I don't do that, I had to put a stop to it. MOL! I don't think he would teach me this game...though it does look like fun!
I got extra lovings from Meowmy and Pawppy, today,because of my DDP...
Meowmy and I want to thank all who sent messages, comments and presents.
I appawsiated them all so furry much!
Well it was a drizzly day, for the most part. I helped meowmy make some picture boards fur my unfurbro's graduation pawrty, but meowmy said she really did not need the kind of help I was offering! MOL!! I was putting my paw on the board to show her where the pics should go, and also holding some of them down, so she would see how good they looked in the places I had decided fur them...It is always so much fun and so intriguing to watch and help in the Meowmy chores...only I don't care at all for that sucking noisy chore that she does quite regularly...
Good night all you kitties and their peeps in Catsterland! I'll be kneading you, soon!
June 9th 2010 6:03 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Well, yesterday, I was a DDP...and today the Dog-Guy had a turn at it! OK! Way to go, my furmouse dog furbling; my earwashing puppy and my buddy, yes you are my buddy, even though Pipo would disagree with that! MOL!
OK! That is 2 out of 3, does that mean that Pipo will have a turn really soon? Time will tell.
I spent quite a bit of time trying to get at some paper that was at the bottom of the laundry basket, I put my paw in the basket holes and tried to fish it out by snagging it, nope! I tried to get it by jumping in and picking it up with my teeth...nope! So I gave up and went to sleep on it. To guard it! MOL! But them meowmy walked past and shook a can of something that rattled, so I had to get out of there really fast, she spooked me...and she laughed at me,too! I guess it was a payback fur when I spooked her from the box!
OK, Bye now...I see meowmy is getting the toothbrushes out, so I need to vamoose!
June 10th 2010 5:44 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] Well, Pipo didn't get a DDP, today. Does that mean that I should feel sorry fur him? Nah...Life just goes on!
Meowmy did manage to corral me yesterday, for that wicked toothbrush encounter! Bah! How I hate that, even though I know its because of that, that I didn't need an extra vet trip...
Today I was rather naughty and had a big fight with Pipo...about...I don't even remember. All the peeps who were home stopped what they were doing and had to see what all the fuss was about! My tail was huge, and if one could call them hackles, like a dog...Mine were standing straight up. I was not spooked, but I was angry! I think it started when Pipo wanted the same hunk of old mouse fur toy that I was throwing around...No way was I going to let him have MY mouse...go find your own, there sure are enough of them, a whole box full...
Eventually peace reigned again as part of the order of things, and I went on with my life. This time I took the hunk of mouse fur up the stairs...threw it down and chased it...right into the dog-guy! OMC! Now that was the end of my game for the timebeing...
June 11th 2010 9:29 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Well, I needn't have worried...Pipo got his DDP today! OMC! Meowmy has spent hours at the 'puter, instead of with me...and Pipo of course.
I think I like it better when we can just be ordinary not furmouse kitties! Although I do like it when meowmy tells me that I am in the spotfur, whatevfur that means...
Today while meowmy was on the phone, I discovered her purse...had been left open. An invitation fur my exploratory paws! So I snagged a few things and dumped them on the floor. The better to get the attention I want from Meowmy!! MOL!
Well, Its night-night tme fur all us creatures at the den!

3. Whats your favourite way to wake up and whats the first thing you do?
My favorite way to get up, is to see meowmy coming downstairs first, followed by pawppy, They rub my furs and talk to me.Meowmy is best, though, because then I can use her sandals, (which she wears like slippers), for my morning scratching post exercise.
4.What would you call yourself if you could choose your own name?

5. What was the last thing you ate that you really shouldnt of .
Let me think...Paper napkins esp the ones that have some yummy touches on them like gravey...Paper bag and cardboard box flaps, too. So many things bear my catnature on them...

That thing that says Hoover Wind Tunnel on it...I don't want to get sucked into that, and it is SO loud!

One of Beatrice Potter's kitties, but not Tom Kitten, that was who one of my furbears was named after!
11. What super-power would you most like to have, and why?
The ability to go through walls and closed doors, so that I could get to meowmy or pawppy during the night, when I am shut out of the bedrooms...
12. If you could play sports, what you you play and why?
High Jump! I can chase my fishing pole and laser light to very high places...Perhaps foosball, because I am always moving my mouse toys around, and trying to score goals with them under the furniture, or appliances...
OK. Now I have to think about who I should go and put a tag on...
June 15th 2010 8:25 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] A couple of days ago, it was my pawppy's birthday. Of course I came to investigate the rustlings of wrapping paper...from the birthday gifts. OMC! There was a delicious pile of tissue paper on the table. I pounced right into it! And then after rearranging it to my liking, I took a nap on it. Of course by now, there were some big rips in the stuff. Meowmy saw it, and tried to get a bit of it over my head, like a collar...she even got a couple of (not so great she said) pictures...Well, of course that was the end of my repose on the wrapping paper. I did not want to be wrapped up...Nesting material is great, as long as I don't get stuck in it...unless of course I do the 'sticking'! ...because I do like to get in and under stuff, just not when meowmy wants me to...MOL!
June 18th 2010 7:57 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] I have discovered that there are even worse things than vacuum cleaners...
Yesterday was a beautiful not too hot and not humid day. There was a nice breeze. So meowmy turned off the AC and opened all the windows! Ahhh! Sun puddles with fresh air! What more could a kitty want!?
Well, because it wasn't hat, etc, my unfurbros were also outside. Meowmy gave them yard work chores...
So there I was on my cat condo perch and here comes this long thing with a noise maker on the end of it. It would be just humming loudly which was bad enough...but then it would make a huge burst of noise! And then it would go back to humming mode...meowmy said my unfurbro was 'whacking' the weeds! Shouldn't we just get a cow or a goat to do that? It would be so much more interesting to watch and no scary noises...except perhaps when they bleat or moo...MOL!
Well Anyways, I just had to get out of my nice sunpuddle. Humpf!
A while later, I had returned to my rightful place...but then along came another noisy machine,,,being pushed over the green grass. It did make the air smell interesting...but the NOISE! Unbearable! So I had to get away a 2nd time. After that noisy lawnmower I am convinced that a cow would be so much more preferable. Perhaps I could even get to be furends with it! MOL!
Good thing that the lawn was done yesterday. Today in the evening we had some more severe weather. Boom! And the wind...close to 70 mph! That's like a hurricane! Nearby towns showed pics in the news of pushed over trees. This was not a tornado, though. Meowmy had read about all the bad tornadoes in Minnesota, last night and those reports made her feel sad.
Night! Sleep well with no bad and loud noisy disturbances!
June 20th 2010 9:09 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Today was my Pawppy's Day. Just fur all Pawppys, and grand pawppys, and all those who have kids, be they furred or skinned...4 legged or bipeds...
Of course there was a present. And it was in a bag with tissue. I hardly let pawppy get it out of the bag before I was trying to possess it! MOL! But then I saw what was in that bag...ooh-la-la! A big soft fleece! To keep pawppy warm...ha-ha...not right now...an ice sheet may have been better...The fleece has the logo of his college on it...Purdue. So pawppy is a Boilermaker! Well soon enough we will help him make good use of it, and of course we will try to stake our own claim on it...with lots of our furs...
Not much else happening here...meowmy has been busy with my unfurbro's graduation things, maybe now we can get back to normal, whatevfur that is...MOL!
So when I have mews to miaow about catsterland will be sure to hear the yowlings about them!
June 23rd 2010 11:59 am
[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ] Well, it happened again. The 3rd time in a few weeks. Another dead kitty. Meowmy just gets so upset when she sees that. Wild animals are bad enough, but pets, that is just not right.
She wrote a little poem for this kitten, yes a very young and pretty kitty, and you can read it in Pipo's diary. She didn't want to put the same thing in two places ...
Another thing happened, too. She used all that stuff in the props box...and that flashy clicky thing...she points it at me and then clicks it...
AND another thing happened that was kind of scary...the earth moved! Yup! It did!
Meowmy suddenly felt her chair swaying from side to side...and that was strange because no one was touching it. The chains on our 2 pendulum clocks were jiggling, and some other things were moving like a strong breeze was moving them...
This was confirmed as an earthquake! Magnitude 5 on the Richter scale...in the region of the Ontario/Quebec Border. At 141pm, EDST.
WOW! If we felt that way over here in southwest Michigan, imagine what the peeps in Toronto or Montreal felt! Is this some kind of omen for this G20 thing that is in Toronto later...
June 25th 2010 8:19 am
[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ] Well, that diary gal, aka random computer selector has gotten me out of the big pile of furs that live here in Catsterland. I must have been eager to get out in the spotfurlight! MOL!!
Soon, too Meowmy will try and get some of the newest pics up...to catebrate Canada Day! I shall have to help her make a Maple Leaf Flag cake...then maybe I will get a lick of the whipped cream topping on it...MMM...Yummy!
The first good thing today was that Meowmy opened all the windows, because after some hot and humid days, it is now nicely cool and pleasant. The 1st thing I did, was to take a deep breath of the cool, fresh air, then I went on a big zoomies adventure, complete with loud meowlings and fluffed up tail!
Hope efurryone has a pawsome day!
June 25th 2010 10:08 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Well, it certainly has been a long and busy day...Meowmy had to be my catretary a lot, because there were lots of messages and then she had to open presents for me. Thanks so furry much to all who sent messages and comments and gifts.
Furry much appawsiated!
Then she started to put up the results of a torture session from a few days ago...ie: photos. She just gets all carried away with this 'work'...I think she took 5000 or something...whatever! So now you can see little me in some dual citizen outfits, for the upcoming holidays. 2 birthdays for 2 countries! OMC! Double the fun and yums!
Then I had a great time being a pest with the props...from a picture session meowmy was doing with Pipo...the best stuff was feathery and fuzzy, I stole one and ran away with it! MOL! MOL!
Have a nice Weekend!
June 27th 2010 8:20 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ] Meowmy was having an ice cream cone while she was perusing catster things...I almost always sit on the CPU while she is there, and tonight wasn't any different, except there was this yummy smell coming from her hand...so I got up and climbed on the desk...nothing there...so I sniffed the air for directional assistance...OMC! Meowmy has the yummy smell, in her hand!So I stretched out my neck and tried to get a better whiff or best, a taste! MOL! Well, just out of reach. So then I put my paw on her chest and went with the other one to do some selfscooping...I just HAD to get some of that yummy ice cream...finally, meowmy relented and put some on her finger for me to lick off. Pipo was too far away to get any...MOL!
Then she did the worst thing ever, and gave the last little bit of the cone with some ice cream still in it to the dog! Humpf! I just had to stalk off...
June 28th 2010 8:44 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Well, meowmy was getting perturbed and annoyed with one of my unfurbros. I was on the CPU as usual. Pipo was in a love seat nest, nearby and the dog-guy was under meowmy's chair.
All of a sudden she banged her fist down on the desk, which of course made a loud BANG! I took off in a huge hurry, looming like a chimney brush, Pipo had to hiss and spit at the dog-guy, because he took off after me1 What a zoo! What do you expect, meowmy, when you scare me like that! I thought a bomb had gone off, right beside me! Please Meowmy, have more patience, and pay attention to who is around you, when you need to make your opinions known with the other peeps in here...
Well after Meowmy had the audacity to giggle at what she made us all do, she just went back to the 'puter stuff and all was peacefur again...
June 29th 2010 8:33 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 6 people already have ] I am a smart kitty, too. Yesterday meowmy wrote on Pipo's page about how he was rubbing and carrying on around the set of encyclopedias.
Well, my unfurbros grad gown was still hanging up where he left it...boys, they always need reminders to clean up!...So today I was under it, and I could just see myself wearing that purple gown...so I jumped up into the bottom of it...like a cuckoo cat!
Over and over I did this, but somehow or other I never seemed able to get that thing on me...MOL!
So Eventually I gave up on that activity and went on to look for more fertile grounds fur mischief!
Now where did unfurbro put his cap...?! I could probably put my little self into that quite easily! MOL! And I would have a tassel to amuse myself with, too.I wonder why meowmy didn't give those tassels to Pipo and I to play with? Would be great kitty toys! MOL!
June 30th 2010 8:26 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Well, today my furbling, Pipo was a DDP.
I grudgingly give him my concats. Even though I had that honor not that long ago, myself...MOL!
Today was still nice weather, so I got to enjoy open windows. The best part about that is, when they are open, there are actually window seats...because they are flush with the walls when they are closed! There are now lots of buzzy humming birds. I don't know why they are called humming birds, because if you pay attention, they make more of a buzzing sound when they fly and flit past. There are lots of bee balm plants in a garden just under one of our windows, and that is where they like to go and sip the nectar...and provide fun entertainment fur us kitties.
This evening being a bit coolish, Pipo and I decided that windows were not the best place...esp since the sun has gone down. So I decided that since I was jealous of his honours, I was going to pester him. He went behind the couch, and I followed. To be in the same place...but there is only room for one of us to be comfy there...so I ignored his warning meowling and had a scuffle with him. So much so that all of a sudden I felt a wetness in my face! The nerve! Meowmy can't you see that I need to be there, and Pipo can just go somewhere else?!
Humpf! Meowmy used the spray bottle on me...so I just had to leave and Pipo got to stay...well whatever. I am now sleeping in my proper kitty nest...which I stole from the dog-guy! MOL!
Happy Canada Day everyfur! And Happy 4th of July, too!
July 2nd 2010 11:39 am
[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ] I do some truly silly things when I get bored...to break the boredom I guess.
Well I was lurking around looking fur some good mischief...and I picked up an old hunk of a long 'dead' mouse toy. I batted it into the cat condo. Then I didn't know where it was anymore. So I got on the top of it and looked down into the 1st level...not there. I climbed into that hole, turned around, meweled and stuck out mt little grey/blue paw to see if it was hiding around the edge...nope. So I jumped out and went into level 2. Same thing...then I tried level 3, the bottom. OMC! Just where did that thing get to. I kept going in and out, exploring all around with my paw, batting at other imaginary prey, and meowmy thought I was having fits by the sounds she was hearing...Meowly, mreorow, etc...not my usual type of catspeak!
She came over to look and maybe she thought she was going to help me find my lost mousie...but heeheehee! I had not actually put anything in the condo!I was just having some antiboredom fun, with an imaginary furendly mouse! Gotcha Meowmy!She even lifted the condo up to check under it...MOL!
Meowmy and all my furmily went out last night to watch a balloon launch. One of them was named 'Alley Cat', and it has little black cats all around it! Meowmy managed to get a pic of it! Flying!
Today meowmy is flying a Dutch flag in honour of the Dutch soccer team which won their world cup quarter final game. Yeah!
Meowmy sure has a collection of flags...
Wishing everyfur a safe and happy 4th of July holiday!
July 4th 2010 8:11 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Well, the boom-booms are almost over and the lingering smokey odors are decreasing. And things can be 'normal' again...whatevfur that means! MOL! I got to be a lap kitty fur the fireworks, because it was simply too hot, and muggy and full of bugs fur my pawrents to want to go outside to see the official balloon festival ending display. Which is evfurry year, so they will try next year!
Meowmy doesn't do well in those sultry conditions, makes her have headaches. And add the noise and crowds...no thanks...we all watched them in airconditioned comfort, with no help from bugs...or noisy crowds...in a big recliner on pawppy's lap...(meowmy had her own chair of course)...we had the TV display of the D.C. show!
During the past week we were able to enjoy some open windows, but for now, they are all shut tight, and the airconditioning is on. Howevfur did they manage in the past before they had this AC!
We heard a lot of very noisy fighter jets passing overhead, the airport is about 8 miles from our den, and when these planes which were there fur a show would do their display, then they fly out a ways to regroup for the next part of their display.
Those jets go by so fast, they look like big flies or bees to me...but there is no hope of me even trying to snag one...the Raptor was part of the show, and one of the tricks it did...(meowmy saw the show yesterday),it reminded meowmy of a huge moth! Imagine! MOL!!
Glad I was at home...that would have been far too noisy fur me!
Have a great evening. Hope that you all had a wonderfur and safe 4th of July.
July 5th 2010 9:30 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] My unfurbro took gymnastics fur several years. So maybe I should have asked him to help my flycatching endeavours, tonight.
I knocked over the cat condo, almost knocked over the lamp and just made a big rumpus all over. Twinkletoes would be a better name, I think...and I still didn't get that pesky fly! Who knows what meowmy will find clunked over in the morning?! MOL!
I think I would have done better in the back porch, this evening. There was a chickadee in there, and he was confused by the big picture windows in there. The dog-guy was trying to catch it...OMC! He's even more of a klutz with that than me. Sure he can catch coons and bunnies, but they don't fly!
Anyways, meowmy was able to convince the bird to find the window with the pushed back screen...and then she closed the door, and put the screen back. This house is not a bird sanctuary! MOL...More like a bird trap! If us critters had anything to say about that...
July 8th 2010 9:03 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 9 people already have ] I used to be called Stinky Minky by meowmy when I first came to live in this den...but no longer...
I have noticed that Pipo would be more suited to being called something like this...Creepo-Pipo, didn't sweepo, so now we have major stinko...
It seems that I have to clean up after Pipo a lot. By doing the 'sweepo' part that he doesn't...
What happens is that Pipo goes into the litterbox, does a big doodie, and then just hops out, he doesn't sweep any litter overtop of his doodie. The we all just about keel over when we get close to there...so I will go in and investigate...and cover up HIS doodies, man what a stinky kitty he is. He eats premium foods, but OMC! Years and years ago, long befur me, meowmy didn't know about how the good foods made for less smelly doo-doo, less of it and firm easy to clean up doodies, too. So when Groucho made the house become unbearable she asked around and found out how to feed us cats so that this wouldn't be a problem. But that doesn't mean that there is NO smell...P. U.
Pipo, can't you read the kitty etiquette journal?
After You Go...Not covering up, Is a NO-NO!
Maybe that is why, once in a while the dog-guy is very curious about our box,Meowmy has caught him on more than one occasion helping himself to our buried treasure.YUCK!
She just sighs, and says with disgust: 'Animals'!
OK, its pretty bad when I have to fill a diary page with mewsings about poopies, doodies and other yucks..., but truly there hasn't been a whole lot happening at our den lately.
My grandmeowmy is doing quite poorly, so soon will be going into a nursing home. You can read more about that on Pipo's page...
Purrs and mews!
July 9th 2010 8:04 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] WOW! Meowmy goes to the 'puter this morning and what do you know! I am one of the DDP's. All because my furbro made some smelly doodies!
He was so jealous of me today, that he did a lot of chasing. Usually I do that to him...But do you think that he changed his ways...NOPE!
Thanks evryfur that sent pressies, messages and comments. They are so appawsiated! I hope that meomy remembered to send out thank yous for each pressie, but if she didn't , forgive her, pawlease...and consider this as serving the same purpose.
Dog guy had to have a bath more than once this week, can you imagine! He WAS the stinky dude, much worse than Pipo.
Meowmy is trying to learn how to make video clips with her camera...HAH! Lots of cut off kitty heads...and no kitty in the picture at all! MOL!!
Is there anyfur out there in Catsterland who can take one of any of my pics and photo shop it to make me look like I am in camp? I would like that fur Pipo and my doggy brofur, too, purrlease. and thanks. Meowmy is just too 'puter dumb to be good with that...but she knows that there sure are a lot of talented cat peeps out there. Just send me a p-mail if you are willing to volunteer this. Meowmy would like these pics for another thing she does with us...

[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] When I was only a kitten, meowmy got really sick.
She had Cancer.
Tonight she left us kitties in charge of the household and they went to a so called birthday party. Because life is a birthday party evfurry day when you are a cancer survivor, that's what meowmy says.
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.
Meowmy, I hope and purr that this bad stuff stays away from you furefur!

[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Well, meowmy has been so busy with things not much pertaining to me, that she furgot to get my daily deserved allotment of NIP! So I had to help myself. When my pawrents came home from Church last night, the front room was kind of a mess...I had taken the shelf apart, where the catnip is kept, but to no avail...it was in a sealed bottle. Humpff!
Long time ago, meowmy just kept it in a plastic zip-bag, and that made it easy to raid and steal...MOL! But now she is wise to my ways...so I was mad and went and found a new little gift bag she got on Saturday night, at the Relay for Life, and I chewed up the handle! MOL! So There! When I want NIP I need it NOW! So that's why I was naughty...furgive me meowmy! Pawlease?! It was just a little purple plastic bag...
That's all I have to purr about this time folks, it is just an ordinary quiet time here...GOOD!
July 14th 2010 9:49 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Well, Meowmy told me that a kitty from my favorite playground fur kitties, (Catster) was going to make and send me a catnip filled pillow toy! WOW! Imagine that!
I shall dance fur joy and be totally cuckoo with catnip crazies! Then I shall bite and kick those pillows, and bat them all over the house, and carry them with me as I make my den inspections...
Thank you furends of mine...thanks furry much.
Later this evening I had to run to the kitchen because I heard the ice cream container getting opened...which only means one thing! YUM! Meowmy gave me a teaspoon, and I got to lick it in private, up on the washing machine, out of dog-guy's way...Then I sat there and had a good wash of my sticky whiskers...where did those sticky drips come from anyways?!
July 18th 2010 12:04 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 10 people already have ] Sometimes I like to go exploring, looking for monkey business is what meowmy call that...but I'm not sure why?
Well I jumped up on our kitchen island which is more like a storage table than anything else...a soft table cloth to lounge on, and be high up to peruse my cattitory, interesting stuff to nibble at, (dog treats), things to bat down, like meowmy's keys, pens, dog toys, dog leashes...(Why so much dog stuff here meowmy? I thought we were a kitty furmily?), meowmy's purse to slide my paw into to see what I can snag, to dump on the floor or chew on...and the laundry basket. Oh so great when there is fresh soft clean laundry in there. Like a new kitty bed, with walls that I can look out from. But this time it was empty save for some hangers and a bag of some meowmy stuff...nothing soft...that wasn't nice. I heard from Toki from his ATB place, that this was one of his favorite haunts, and that i should claim it for myself, now that he can't anymore...So, whatever...I stomped around in there, rustled the bag and went to sleep on that. A bit lumpy and hard, but I could still keep an eye on the dog-guy and the rest of my den...Since my unfurbro just came back from a week away, and my pawppy did, too, If I am really patient I KNOW that there will be tons of new soft clean laundry to sleep on...Toki told me that's what happens when ever those noisy machines get done making noise...that basket magically fills up!

When my day of monkey-kitty work is done, I shall have to miaow some more mews about it all.In the meantime a few purrs and head bonks will tide us all over! Meowmy says I shall have to be careful or my head will get too big fur my furry monkey-kitty shoulders...MOL
July 21st 2010 10:06 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 6 people already have ] Well, I have been trying to get meowmy to stay at the 'puter all day, but she said she had to get up and take care of things. Things? I am a kitty, not a thing! MOL! Well I did see that she brought in some mew bags of our yummy food, so that the dishes won't run bare. I hate an empty catfood dish! And she had to get food fur the peeps who live in my lair, too. Then she had to do laundry, to fill up my newest nesting site, and then she had to do some cleaning, and then she had to fix the supper stuff. She made something with tuna in it...OMC! That was delicious! Why don't they make cat food like THAT!
In the meantime, I woofed my cookies, chased Pipo, napped on the CPU, and in the laundry.
And helped meowmy type this diary, because otherwise she would have gone to bed. Oh, and I took the catnip shelf apart again...and had some mouse toy chasing fun. And I played with my new nip pillows!
And now we all need to go to nap land!
Thanks to all the furry furends who sent messages and gifts. I am so awed and honored by all this attention fur me just a little blue meezer kitty.

[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Meowmy dawdled around this morning, because the 'puter was off. There was such bad weather here last night, that all the electronic tools and toys were unplugged. Usually she just goes to the 'puter and gives a quick check to see who is in the spotfur, both fur kitties and pups. Then she can send out a quick message if necessary, and return later fur more leisurely stroll through Catsterland and Dogsterland. Well, this morning she waited until she had walked the dog-guy, she wanted that done ASAP due to the heat and humidity. At 730 am it already was 75 degrees. She was a wet rag when she came in.So eventually she got at the 'puter, and there were all the messages and gifts fr me...just like that. Meowmy thought, 'Now what?!'...and there I was in the DDP line up again! WOW! Twice in 3 days!
Robo-kitty must have a problem with its diary filter, or the cogs and gears are stuck...Mind you I am not complaining, but just maybe some other fur would like to get a turn...
Well, It is a fun way to get lots of attention from my furmily and of course my furends.
This evening I got some unsolicited attention, that which I could rather have done without, thankyou very much...
Meowmy had the (not) bright idea to try and get a paw print of me on some paper...OMC! What was she thinking. Not thinking, really.
So I had red poster paint on my paws, and some green and some yellow, before she got the message...I do not want to do this!
She used some wet towels to try and wipe my pawes off, she had been using nontoxic water soluble kids finger/poster paint...but it was hard to get off...so she tried to put my dainty little paws in some warm water! OMC! The torture! This is my DDP day, meowmy, not my torture day!
Well she managed to get most of it off, but I hope that there is some residual left to make some pawprints on the floor and carpet, instead of her silly white paper! MOL! Serves her right!!
Moms! They get the strangest and weirdest and cuckoo ideas sometimes, too sentimental for their own good...
Well after all that I got a good dose of my favorite new catnip, it helped me relax, and I even went back to be close to meowmy...and purred at her.
And now I am purring at you a good night.
Thanks so furry much fur all my furends who sent messages and gifts. I appawsiate all of them so much!
We are having yet another boomer outside! But I feel safe with my peeps, here.

[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] by my friend Jezebel to play this new game. Thanks!
1. Do you ever wake your parent up in the night?
I have been known to rattle the door knob to their bedroom...but fur some reason, they never answer my request. I also bring my mice to their door, along with full voiced miaowing to go with these offerings. But after the 1st few tries at this ploy, the pawrents don't pay that any attention either. I shall have to think up new tricks!
2. Do you ever tear up things?
OMC! Yes! I find cardboard yummy. I bite it, and get a little piece loose, then I can grab that with my pearly whites and rip it off. Then eventually there are all kinds of bits over the floor, like a drift of snowflakes! I also did this to the underside of the couch...MOL!
3. What is your favorite treat?
Licks of yogurt, cottage cheese, bits of meat and cheese, and ice cream. When I get kitty treats, I throw them up! I also just love my heartworm chew. Too bad its only once a month! I have tried to snitch Pipo's chew, because he doesn't like them at all...go figure!
4. Can you fetch something when asked to do so?
No I do not fetch. But I come when called, and I come running whenever I hear the food containers being opened.
5. Have you ever lived any place other than where you live now?
Not really. I claim 'dual citizenship, solely upon the fact that my pawppy is American, and meowmy is Canadian. I was brought to my lair directly from my birth home...but you can read about that on my main page...sort of like a rescue.
I'm going to tag:I don't know, yet. I shall have to snoop through the list of my furends...then I can pounce upon them with this tag game!

[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ] A little while ago one of my furends sent me some homemade catnip pillows. I was thrilled and so furry happy!
This is some of what I pawed to Simone:
Thank you SO furry much fur the most pawtastic 'NIP' I have ever set my snoot into. OMC! I went bonkers over and over again!
I ripped the pink tissue to teeny bits, I killed the big green pillow, and I threw the little pillow all over the house. Then before meowmy could rescue it, I almost ripped open the baggie of loose 'nip. I just KNEW what was in that baggie...Pipo came and had a sniff, but he only had his usual mild reaction. Meowmy gave him a piece of the loose 'nip, but no different. He must be one of the minority of kitties...Very rarely gets 'high' on some nip.seems to depend on his mood.
Then I, Minko had fun trying to find more goodies inside the transport bag.
Meowmy and my auntie who was visiting had big laughs...
Meowmy took some pics. The pics don't do my frenzies justice...but you will know what a cuckoo kitty looks like!
Thank you again, fur thinking of little me.
You are a kind and thoughtfur furmily.
Soon when meowmy's busy spell is over she will try to get the pics posted.(and when the fleas are gone that are preventing her from making picture postings...MROWL, HISS!)
Purrs, head bonks and many kneads from Minko, Pipo. And meowmy of course sends her thanks and greetings, too.
That was such a furtastic , fun and nip filled day fur me.

[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] I am on the CPU, sending esp messages to my catretary to type...She looked down at me, and my little feet were twitching, like I was chasing something...Must be something delectable, I was doing this fur quite a while.
Perhaps I was dreaming about the counter surfing I have done...
To be a thief of whatevfur meowmy may have left out there fur me to discover and indulge in...
I will clean the counter for her with my little pink licking machine...or I may use my sniffing machine to hunt down more worthwhile prey! Like a couple of bags of catnip tea! Meowmy did you put those in your cup fur ME? She sometimes makes this tea as a bedtime relaxer...but meowmy if you put hot water on a 'nip bag, it will call out my name...and those did! My fangs rendered them useless to you...but I don't know why you didn't let me have them...that would have been a pleasure beyond description!
Sometimes I get up on the dining room table after a meal...and lick the napkins...them meowmy will find them turned into snowflake art, like the ones she made in her childhood years...because I have licked holes into the paper...to get what ever morsel or tasty aroma of food debris may be attached to them...that is wastefur and I will have it my stomach instead!
I guess she will put up with this type of minor thievery from me...she hasn't put me in jail, yet!
OK! Gotta go and see if anyone left me some yummy napkin leftovers to steal...there was salmon on that table today! MMMMM!

[ 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 the kneady work of trying to thin it down. The first part of which was to start up a 'new cat page', to show off myself and Pipo 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 Pipo 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.
There may even now be pics there that no one has seen, yet! And oh, my! All the work to make frames and titles! I just love to make meowmy keep busy!
August 5th 2010 6:29 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Sometimes I amaze my meowmy. I can be fast asleep somewhere, deep in dreamland...and all of a sudden she hears a little kitty chirp. More like a teeny kitten squeak. I really hardly ever use a Meezer voice!
Anyways, meowmy thinks that certain sounds are ingrained upon my memory bank with pleasurable feelings...playtime, catnip, food, toys...
Some of my faves are when she opens a yogurt or cottage cheese container, rattling the catnip bottle...yes bottle...the stuff is secured in a container that I cannot get open because I will get to wherever it is and destroy anything else to attain my 'nip prize'. Also the krinkly sounds of paper bags, or coupons...I want to have those to chase around or hide in. And when she gets out the bag of kitty food...YUM! There I come!
Today a box came in the mail, and when meowmy went to open it, I woke up from my napping on the CPU, an jumped on the organ bench where it was. I sat in another box that already was there for Pipo and I to play in, and had my nosey snoot right in the place where she was tearing off the tape.
Well, unfortunately there wasn't any 'nip in it, like the last package that came to my lair...but this had lots of hard plastic jars of medicines...YUCK! Meowmy quickly took them out, and before she could even stand up straight, I was in that box. Like as if it was a kitty magnet!
I curled right up and went to sleep in it. When the peeps came in the room to have supper I woke up to spy over the edge of the box, and then went back to sleep. This box was the perfect size for ME!
Another calling Minko thing...pretend you are opening a box...so that I have to come and inspect it. I am the chief box inspector here...MOL!
August 7th 2010 8:34 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] I am quite the naughty kitty sometimes. A bully actually. Pipo would seem to need that title, because he beats up the dog for no reason, sometimes...but I can get away with a bit of
of a push and a shove with my headbonk technique...and off he goes so that I can get the spot he was in, instead! Hee-hee!
I am like a marauding kitty on the prowl. Prowling fur the best nap spots, the best sunny spots and the best of foods, and treats...Hey, A kitty has to look out fur himself...MOL!
You would think that in this lair of ours with many sunny places, lots of nests to choose from and plenty of food that I would not be like that, but I just have the urge to be number one...no matter if its rude, or naughty...
Sometimes, though meowmy deems the bullying of mine rather too much so out comes that bigger bully in my life...and it always seems to get its way...the water bottle with a squirt trigger!
RUN for my life! I don't want to get my precious Minko fur coat wet!
Then I would be a Stinky-Minky fur sure!
Outta here...I see a bottle on the table....

[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ] Meowmy has accused me of using my teeth inappropriately. She found a healing scar on Pipo's chin. She thinks that I caused it...because I do admit that I am kind of a bully...just before she got out the 'puter to type this, I gave her arm a nip, because she picked me up to move me...and I didn't want to move...
Well, how does she know that it was teeth that made a scar on Pipo...we wrestle a lot in our kitty games, too. So maybe it was a encounter of the claws kind that made that mark...
Well, I am not going to confess one way or another, and somehow I think Pipo knows better than to let the cat out of the bag...MOL!
Meowmy: It is just a little mark of no fur. The scab if there was one is gone, and the skin is healed, what ever the cause...Found it while brushing his teeth...
August 10th 2010 8:59 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ] Here is a funny, sort of...story that meowmy found. Enjoy!I think the funny part is more in the imagination though..at least fur meowmy it was.
BERLIN (AP) -- A cat home alone in Germany apparently turned on the vacuum cleaner, frightened itself half to death and wound up being attended to by emergency services. Police in the Bavarian city of Bayreuth said a neighbor heard the cat's cries - not to mention a vacuum left running for hours - and feared there'd been a terrible accident.
The fire service sped to the scene Monday evening, but found only the cat and the machine.
A police statement Tuesday said the emergency call wasn't entirely in vain, though, because "at least the cat could be calmed down."
A stark contrast to the one Meowmy found and posted for Pipo. She laughed outloud,thinking what kitty in his or her right mind would go near a vacuum, let alone turn it on...MOL! Glad I could make you laugh, too...or at least giggle or grin!
August 12th 2010 2:52 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] Pipo had some wise words to pawnder upon yesterday. Today I will have a go at it, using something that Meowmy had sent to her from my auntie.
Through the eyes of a child, you never know what they are thinking or going to be thinking about. Some are very deep, like my unfurbro who at the age of about 5 wondered who was going to be his wife and where on earth was he going to find her...Meowmy just about drove off the road when he came out with that one!
Here are the other words to take into your own purrspective.
One day , the father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the country with the express purpose of showing him how poor people live.
They spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family.
On their return from their trip, the father asked his son, "How was the trip?"
"It was great , Dad."
"Did you see how poor people live?" the father asked.
"Oh yeah , " said the son.
"So, tell me, what did you learn from the trip?" asked the father.
The son answered:
"I saw that we have one dog and they had four..
We have a pool that reaches to the middle of our garden and they have a creek that has no end.
We have imported lanterns in our garden and they have the stars at night.
Our patio reaches to the front yard and they have the whole horizon.
We have a small piece of land to live on and they have fields that go beyond our sight.
We have servants who serve us , but they serve others.
We buy our food , but they grow theirs.
We have walls around our property to protect us , they have friends to protect them."
The boy's father was speechless.
Then his son added , "Thanks Dad for showing me how poor we are."
Isn't perspective a wonderful thing? Makes you wonder what would happen if we all gave thanks for everything we have, instead of worrying about what we don't have.
Appreciate every single thing you have , especially your friends!
So go now and take new appawsiation in all the little pawleasures and blessings in your life!

[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Here is a happy story of an adventuresome kitty! Perhaps the cat's Meow Blog will air it later...but I have beat her to it!! MOL!
This was aired on our local TV...
2 months and 2,000 miles later, cat returns home
KALAMAZOO, Mich. – It is an amazing story of animal survival.
A West Michigan cat is back home with quite the story to tell.
Cally the cat was found in California two weeks ago and Tuesday she was reunited with her family.
After two months and 2,000 miles, Cally the cat is back home in West Michigan thanks to her micro chip.
It all began with a family vacation out west.
"We lost our cat in California," said Loretta Lowe.
Curiosity got the better of of Cally.
"She got out at a county park, but there was a possibility of three places," said Lowe.
Cally disappeared on June 15 and after seven weeks of waiting Loretta Lowe and her husband had pretty much given up hope.
"August 3rd I came home and there was a message on my phone that they had found her and I was just really surprised cause I didn't think I'd ever see her," said Lowe.
Tuesday morning they did some more waiting, this time at the Kalamazoo-Battle Creek International Airport.
Cally the cat was found near Redding, California. Her microchip showed she belonged here in West Michigan, so the folks at Home Again Pet Recovery drove her to an airport in Sacramento where she was put on a plane to fly the 2,000 miles to West Michigan for an emotional homecoming.
Once out of her cage it was clear the cat was happy to be home. The Lowes had something special waiting for their traveling friend.
"Treats. It's a bad thing to give her I guess cause she was naughty, but she will get her treats because I don't know if she's had any," said Lowe.
It cost just $75 when they adopted her to get the Home Again Microchip put into Cally. It's something the Lowes say they would do again.
Yup, Peeps! Put in a microchip! Maybe your kitty will need it some day...but hopefurly not!

[ Leave A Comment | 6 people already have ] Meowmy was typing my kitty stuff, the other evening. Of course that always means that her lap is conveniently exposed to any passerby, namely a kitty. So Up I jumped. I purred my head off, head bonked her chin, made a loaf of bread ready for the oven on her soft lap, and rubbed all over her arms, too. She could hardly type anything legible...
Then I started to turn circles in her lap, to get comfy before rolling myself up in a ball on that nice , soft and warm lap that meowmy has...
All of a sudden she snorted and sneezed! 'Hey', she said! 'Your tail is in my nose.' She pushed it out of the way...but in a few seconds, I did it again, only this time she almost bit the end of my tail with her sandwich...wonder if it would have been tasty as a new type of sandwich filling?!? MOL!
My tail got into her mouth and was about to be eaten! Oh No! She nearly choked on it...or at least in her efforts not to eat it...and then choked and sputtered some more...because she got a big case of the giggles. Needless to say, I got removed from her lap...Humpf!
Purrs! Keep your tails in safe places, all you non-Manx kitties!

[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] I Minko am guilty of making meowmy's feet and sandals at risk for destruction! Race cars and sharks may be the answer!
There is a new contest at the Cat's Meow blog site...for a kitty scratching shape.
This is what I had Pipo type there for me, He is more dextrous than me! Meowmy had Pipo speak for both of us, but is putting it in my diary, since it is mostly about me...MOL!
So this is what was posted there:
We would love a scratching kitty car or didn't we see a Shark, too? Our furbling angel would have loved the car...he chased our unfurbro's hotwheels!
I, Pipo scratch the sisal post, the couch armrest...oh-oh...and some cardboard boxes. Minko scratches those things, too but his favorite thing to scratch is meowmy's sandals while she is wearing them. He pulls hard on their straps, and she worries that he will pull them apart. He likes the leather 's texture. Sometimes he gets a bit carried away, and gets rewarded with a big OUCH!
He would really love a scratching site that doesn't talk back to him...and meowmy would like a place for him to scratch that doesn't hurt her feet!
She wears those sandals like slippers and always has them on...she wonders if he would try to scratch a regular pair of shoes?!?
Pawppy and unfurbros do not get that treatment, so maybe it is a sign of affection? Hmmm.
Anyways this household of kitties certainly would love one of those new scratchers.
Thanks so much for offering us a chance.
Pipo and Minko
Go on over to that site...you can get there from the community page. Cast your own comment for a chance to win one of those cool scratching shapes!

[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ] I have found a new toy/game!
Our dog-guy furbling has several tennis balls. The nice and fuzzy ones! Well some of them got cut open to cover the ends of our nordic trac exercise machine...which meowmy thought could be ouchy if we or anyone else bumped into them...so they act like bumper pads!
I keep trying to push them off, by biting and pawing at them...MOL! I got one off, and was trying to rip it open...like how a mouse would get treated by yours truly!
Well, there is one partly defuzzed tennis ball that I have decided to call my own. Dog-guy has teased about 1/3 of the fuzz off of it...and ripped some more, so that I can get my teeth and claws into it.
I pick this ball up with my teeth and carry it off...then I grab it with my paws and give it extra strong, deadly bunny kicks with my back paws...and there isn't even any cat nip on it! And then I paw at it and roll it all around until I have that urge to bite and kick at it again. My own version of world cup soccer! I am like the keeper, who grabs that ball to make sure it can't get away!
The other day it scored a goal fur the other team by rolling under the couch...I had to sit there and look disgruntled and pathetic until meowmy pulled it out, so the games could start again. MOL!
Some furs are already discussing what or who they should be fur Halloween...well meowmy and our furmily usually ignore this 'holiday'...we do not like stuff about ghosts, devils and witches...so unless mewomy can find some less disturbing costume, I shall just have to be a furry , naked kitty! In the buff!
Just the way I like it! MOL!
Hmmm...I did see meowmy bring in some orange stuff...help! That would be a collar or something evil like that...well, 2 months away...so maybe I can go exploring with my dextrous little paws and find that stuff and then hide it! MOL!! --- We have greatly enjoyed the fresh air and sweet scents of the summer breezes wafting into our lair today...all the windows were open all day long. And there were also glorious sunpuddles to relax in. Perfect.
August 29th 2010 7:16 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] The nice coolish open window days have ended. The official temp here today was 94. The sign meowmy passes on the way to church said 99. UGH! She thought her van's A/C was not working very well, but in fact it was working overtime! The windows have stayed shut all day...and probably for a few more.
All of meowmy's garden plants which are perennials that are supposed to withstand heat and drought are looking very tired and sad...they need a break, too!
Please come back, nice weather, we miss you!

Kind of cute, eve if it is 'potty'!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=49jKeGyUCJE&featurerelated(Mewomy could not find this video any more...)
Giggles! Now didn't that make you have a good laugh?
We all need that now and then...
Well in other happenings with me...
I have been at a kitty camp, for a lot of the summer.We did a lot of activities, there, Pipo and I.
I camped out under the stars, made crafts, paw-painted...mine did not win, MOL!, learned things in kitty classes, cooked kitty cupcakes, YUM!, made avatars, but again mine did not 'make the cut', but it was fun to do. There was a talent show, too. And lots more, all summer long!
Then we got to put our pics in and mine got picked to be in a memory game. YEAH! Its the pic of me in Canada Day gear! So whenefur meowmy plays that game at the campsite, she gets to see ME! (Catchannel.com...go to Camp Kitty)
Francis (752250) was kind enough to make some pics for us, so that we could have a great camp experience. Soon meowmy will post those, too.
But now all that is over and meowmy and me and Pipo can get back to our regular routine! Whatevfur that may be! MOL!!

[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] OMC! My page is full of these great big hearts!
Must be that I have a lot of secret admirers...MOL! Oh well the thought was fun1
But I do know that I have lots of good furends here, and that we like to send gifts back and forth to each other. Spreading the Catser love is fun!
There is a 'freebie' on Dogster, so now isn't it great that we have our own?!
I have so many of these new hearts that meowmy and I can't even get started to say and send our thanks!
So we are saying it on my diary.
Thanks, efurry one fur all the love and lovely hearts you have sent to me and my furblings.
Soon your own pages will be overflowing with these love gestures!
Maybe catster will have to give all of us separate gift pages! MOL!
Soon, also I may be sending you one or more of these!

Meowmy knew she was going to have a furry busy day...and so what does she find when she looks at the 'puter, this am?
I am a DDP, again!
Oh Happy day fur me...and even busier day for her! MOL!
Thanks furry much all you pals and gals!
So far I have been sent at least 12 gifts and a lot more in the form of messages. Phew!
Not to mention all the ones that have been flooding the pages of my furblings!
THANKS FURRY MUCH!
Please furgive meowmy if she didn't thank each one in a separate message...her head was so full of my unfurbros going off to school for the semester, cleaning up the house and going to a funeral out of town fur a good friend of hers, from the church.
There seems to be something in that diary gals picking machine that knows when is not a stay at home day for meowmy...that is frequently when these busy days come! MOL! Once she had to be gone all day and one of us had a DDP or whatevfur...the inbox was jammed!
She still hasn't even checked out the doggy stuff yet!...Hey we need more attention, don't we?!...let alone done anything much else on the 'puter...we ...I...am too 'portant fur that!! MOL, MOL! That is why I ♥ Meowmy so much...she does take time out fur us...
Bye now! Night!

[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Today I was happy and full of the crazies...Only a kitty peep would understand what that means...MOL!
Well I heard back from HQ yesterday that the updater was going to be fixed by Friday.
So I was more than glad that it was fixed today.
That means that I can check all my kitty furends doings and keep in touch. That also means that meowmy will have less hunting to do...gives her more time to play with me!
Win-Win! Happy Kitty=Happy Meowmy!
Mews,purrs and headbonks to all!
September 12th 2010 8:32 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] Well, our table has a lot more room on it since my unfurbros are away at college.
And the aromas of dinner can be very tantalizing, esp if it is roast pork...Well dinner started off as usual. Pipo and I sat nearby on the floor waiting for a game of laser tag...we love to interrupt our pawrents' mealtimes for that...
Then they started to eat in earnest...and not pay attention to me!
So I just got out my built in pogo stick legs and all of a sudden, there I was right on the table...Mrewowow? I stretched out my neck and had a good whiff of the meat...and just as quickly I was being made airborne on the hand of meowmy who placed me back on the floor...Shucks! Busted! Caught in the act! What was I thinking anyways, that my forward behavior would get me a tasty morsel??!
Well by the time the ice cream came on the table I just had to try it again...and of course the result was the same...I need to devise a different tactic for this table dancing talent of mine!
September 16th 2010 7:55 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Well, that evil camera thing had to come out of its pouch and bother us again...
Meowmy had all kinds of things to make bears into pirates...bandannas, eyepatches, etc...So off the bears they came...and she thought that they would make cute pirate pics for me and Pipo...WRONG!
I wasn't going to have any part of that stuff. Usually I just kind of groan and submit...but this time I was in the bite mode!
Yup, you heard me, I bit meowmy..just a little to get my message through...I wasn't going to be a pirate, AAARGH! NO way!
And meowmy said...OK. and put it away! Wow! That was easy!
...Little did I know that she had some other stuff for Oct 31 in her bag of tricks!
So after she did some stuff with Pipo, she grabbed me again...but this time she didn't try to put an eye patch on me...or a shirt, so it was easier. Soon I will let meowmy post the new pics, but not till October comes along...do you think that she will put me in a cornucopia for a Thanksgiving pic?! Cat-horn o'plentypurrs! MOL!
September 26th 2010 9:16 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 6 people already have ] Well, I can see that my page needs a renewal to keep currant with the season...after all, who is camping now? Its in the 40's outside right now! Not good for camping...esp if you like to be warm and cozy!
Meowmy put up one pic of me in a fall themed collar...but she needs to sort through the bejillion other ones she clicked of me. There must be one or two more?
I went to Hazel Lucy and Buddie's annipurrsary pawrty with Pipo. That was fun. Then we went to Tessa and Mitten's wedding. That was great! I never saw one before.
Our conCATs to both couples!
Meowmy found some bits of cat litter on the kitchen counter the other morning...and she had the audacity to blame me! She says that I spend the most time in there, my feet always have some on them even though I have to walk over a large bumpy littermat. And I am the curious one, always hunting for nip...this time I didn't find that but I did find some milk jug rings that we like to play catch and fetch with...OOPS, I think I just confessed to counter surfing!
Bye...gotta go before I get into more trouble!
September 27th 2010 9:40 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ] Booby traps! Lots of them...that's what meowmy has done in the kitchen...with baking sheets. They are hanging out just over the edge of the counters...and woe is anyfur who comes on my counters!
That's what meowmy said to me this evening after supper...because when she came inside after doing all her many hours of errands...she found some more kitty evidence on the counters...yup! Kitty litter!
So now she may not be able to see who was up there, but whoever tries it will have those noisy metal sheets falling down, and the kitty with them...I think she should set up one of those motion triggered video cameras that wild life photographers use...It would make a great U tube clip!
So maybe when my pawppy stumbles in the kitchen tomorrow am to get his breakfast...maybe he will trigger the traps!! MOL!
I am not going to divulge any secrets...
Right now I am being a sweet nnocent little kitty dude on my meowmy's lap while I have been dictating all this mewsy stuff to her fingers...that will keep them from going into scratch mode, as she is still very rashy and itchy.
I foresee a people-vet appointment...
October 2nd 2010 8:19 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] When meowmy gets any kind of ideas, we kitties had better hide...she goes crazy and cuckoo with all the props...I think that little buzzing, dinging and flashing box of hers went off about a million-gazillion times in the past few days, prior to you in catsterland being able to see some of the fruits of her labors!
This session I got put in a big bowl with some scarecrows, that looked more cute that scary! I wanted to eat the orange streamers, or at least rip them up...and the feather boa was such a great toy, that meowmy had to tire me out before I would sit still long enough for a 'pose'! THen I was just about ready to take a snooze and she put that pic up on my page too...OMC! I look like a fat kitty Jack-o-lantern...and not a very spooky one at that!
Then she got me totally crammed in a big pumpkin! Is that why they hollow out pumpkins? To put kittycats in them...Well it was kind of comfy, I have to admit...but after a while I got annoyed with all the disturbances...and gave a big Minko scowl!
And when she tried to put a headband on me wth a bat and black butterflies...NO WAY! I swatted that thing and even caught it enough to take one of the butterflies off it! MOL!
Goodness only knows what meowmy will come up with fur the next set of picture seasons.
If you read Pipo's Pawnderings, you will read there about Suki, my angel furbling who would have been 14 today. She was the only lady kitty meowmy ever has had. My pawrents still miss her royal highness cattitude airs!
Purrs to all and Happy Fall!
October 5th 2010 8:29 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] OMC! The sky has been dropping leaves, the past few days! We have a big walnut tree beside the house on the side where we do our window basking and viewings of the big outdoors. It sure makes a big mess of leaves every fall. Now that we have had frost, 2x already the leaves are coming down and fluttering past the windows with evfurry bit of breeze. Like the ceiling outside is coming part! Well when those leaves are gone, at least there will be more oppurtunity fur the sunbeams to warm up our furs...we have had plenty of that!
other than the normal kitty things in the day to day life of a meezer kitty, life is pretty ordinary. Meowmy says that is a good thing!
Well, I would like some more kinds of fun, pawlease, meowmy?
Like grocery bags to inspect, laundry to deposit my furs on, dog-guy to get his ears washed...and so on. I haven't jumped on the booby trapped counters...yet...
Meowmy is trying to teach me to sit up and get my head rubbed that way.
If she cups her hand above my head, I will sit up and put my head into her palm...so she can rub it. Well, this evening, we were doing that, and I got into the purring mode, and suddenly I was plopped over on the carpet, kneading in the air...but meowmy couldn't reach me any more from where she was sitting, so soon I had to jump up and get into her lap, fur some real kitty/purrson bonding!
Well, I need to do my long nights sleep in my cozy den...nighty-night!
October 7th 2010 10:47 am
[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ] Meowmy composed a little ditty about all the pretty trees we see each morning lately!
The leaves are changing color,
Many shades of orange and yellow.
There's red, too.
Painted by some strange fellow.
He has done lots of work,
When he comes by each night,
His paint brush doesn't stop,
Until the sun shines bright.
Under cover of darkness,
And in a clear, cold frost
he paints jewels on everything,
Beauty beyond any cost.
You have to go and see these,
before they are lost,
When the sun shines, bright,
Those jewels melt away,
Out of eyesight!
Only the pretty leaves,
That still hang on the trees
Still show these frost colours,
Till they fall off in the breeze.
So go and enjoy
The beauty of fall.
Its free to behold,
For no cost, at all!
Oct 7, 2010
We hope you enjoy this pretty season as much as we do!

[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] Meowmy saw me sunning myself yesterday.
And in a nice place for pics...so 'ding!' goes that little silver box, and 'zing!' goes that window in the front of it...and click...
And meowmy seemed happy. And so was I when she stopped! Phew! No clothes this session...funnily enough, no props either.
Well then I heard some unlikely words coming from the computer desk area...and Meowmy was there...and my pics were up on the monitor...and meowmy was NOT happy! Why? I didn't do anything naughty did I?
Well what it was, the camera took some very nice pictures...and meowmy though some were going to be the best ever...BUT...there was some yucky guck in the corner of one of my eyes! Meowmy was wondering if I had properly washed my face when I got ready for my day! Or was it just a slip up in my grooming technique. Now she has been watching me all day to make sure I don't have an eye infection...I do not!
I guess that means that there won't be any more spontaneous close up pictures anymore...MOL!
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 9:58 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] Well, meowmy is back to 'normal' after a brief hiatus of bedrest post laser treatments for those very gross veins...all is fine...and she should not have much more to worry about being gross. Now Me...I was gross!
Meowmy received some roses.
So in the vase they went, and in the kitchen sink...cause she knows that we kitties and mostly me...MOL...are herbivores..when there are plants around to practice that on!
Well, I looked and saw that the booby traps were not there...'what were you thinking, meowmy?' So Up I jumped and had a nice tasty meal of rose leaves and petals...
Meowmy came into the dining room...and sure enough...big puddle of YUCK! Complete with disposed of and rejected green leaves. She knew it was me, cause I had slobber from my YUCK on my chin...When she looked at the flowers, she had to giggle...there were chew marks and holes in so many of the leaves...and some of them had been stripped off! I only do complete jobs!
Of course since I am not a rabbit, well soon I was green about the gills...another silly thing to say, kitties do not have gills! Just say that I woofed my cookies, meowmy! Oh...I guess that is silly fur kitties, too...I mew, not woof, and I know that those roses were NOT cookies! MOL!
OK, then lets be gross...and say it like it is...I Barfed! Yuck! You know? I learned that roses look better than they taste, and that I was not meant to be rosy or green with their essences!
Through all the stormy weather, today...I just had a good sleep on the CPU. It is nice and warm again, after almost a week of not being turned on...first because meowmy could not use it while on bedrest, and second, cause Pawppy had it dysfunctional fur a while, to help him fix his own...well now all the parts are back where they belong.
So I felt that this bad weather was not going to be the cause of me not having a warm napping place! And I got my way! Yeah! We did not have to go into our dungeon!
Most of the storm passed by our den...thankfully!
October 28th 2010 11:08 am
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] A couple of days ago, I pawed here about the bad weather. Well yesterday it was still very windy and rough, winds about 40-50 mph @ times. Whenever the windows rattled too loud, we would look up and the dog-guy would growl.
But there was lots of sun to make those warm patches on our condo...so I spent a lot of time there. AHHH!
(Today the sun is gone, it is cold, damp and dull...)
I stopped trying to eat the roses....but maybe I will have a sample of any other blooms that may decide to show up in a vase...
Pawppy saw a big huge cat walking around, downtown. It seemed like it wasn't too scary, because people were waving at it! And he waved back! Wow!
Well, we live near Battle Creek, and this is the home of Tony The Tiger! Isn't that GRRREAT!?! MOL!
I am rather clumsy sometimes. Meowmy was in her recliner, and I wanted to keep her lap warm...so I tried without success several times to get ion the armrest...but each time I missed my aim, and slid back to the floor. Meowmy was giggling, and she didn't even try to help me get in her lap! The nerve! So I sat there and stewed fur a while, and then I had a bright moment!
I jumped straight up and landed right in the middle of the headrest part of the recliner. No Problem! OMC! Why can't I jump up on to the arm rest, but I can land squarely on the headrest with no trouble at all?! It is so much higher. Whatevfur!
I am also a bit skittish. Esp after all the racket that was outside the past few days.
I was on the CPU, having a battery recharge...by its nice warmth. Pawppy came and opened the cabinet...for his own reasons, I guess...That meant that evfurry time I would move that cover banged. So at one point I was getting more comfy, meowmy put out her hand to pet me...and I nearly had a hissy fit. Too much noise and movements all at the same time!
My tail was fluffed up, and even my kitty hackles were standing up. Meowmy, you scared me! It isn't even Halloween, yet! But I did feel a bit sheepish when I realized I was depriving myself of a nice scratching under my chin, and a good pet of my furs. But I did glare at meowmy to be more careful in how and when she approaches me...MOL!
Purrs to all!
November 3rd 2010 9:55 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Well, Its late, so meowmy will just 'reprint the same entry here as for my brofur:
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 | 3 people already have ] Oh, I heard the back door opening and all kinds of noise in the kitchen...so I went to hide behind the couch...my furvorite hidey hole!
And then that noisy goofy dog-guy came in!
That is meowmy! Yeah, she is back!
I decided it was safe to come out of hiding and tried to investigate the bags and stuff, but since her trip was short, and only she and dog-guy went, there wasn't a lot.
So I hopped in my box full of nice crinkly wrapping paper and took a nice nap. Full of sweet dreams, cause I could truly relax, knowing that meowmy was safe at home again.
At supper, she got out the laser toy, and I had heaps of fun, chasing it all over the place!
Now I am back in sleep mode!
PS: It appears that meowmy has missed some goings on during the time she was away...there are lots of prezzies on Pipo's page...And I see some on mine, too.
We will try to remind her to say official thanks when her routine gets back to regular! Hee-hee...is it ever?
Meanwhile, general thanks and conCATs to all and any kitties who as our pals may have been a bit neglected by meowmy during her absence!
She was a tad frustrated! She could see all the things on a borrowed 'puter, but not make responses...let alone send out messages!
So she wrote them down, and will try to get to them later...

[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] This Is Minko's Diary
OMC! Meowmy was gone fur a while and I did miss her. So, since her return, I have been all over her, using her feet as scratching places, bumping up under her arms while she is NOT paying me any attention cause she is using the computer...and getting into her lap at any op-purr-tuna-ty!
I have been really cuckoo and zoomie thoughts race through mu mind a lot. I think when meowmy is not here I languish and when she returns my batteries are fully charged!
We have had a lot of nice warm sunny weather, lately. So of course that meakes for great sleeping in sunpuddles.
And I keep recharging those batteries I have with power sun naps!
I about put holes in the big lamp that lights up the desk area and living room, because of one little fly...(Flies always seem to emerge from who knows where on sunny days...),but after I knocked it down, Pipo came and grabbed it into his mouth...but then he let it go because it was a buzzing in there! MOL! Meowmy was laughing a lot, I don't know if it was at me or at Pipo!
Sunny days also mean that the risk of being attacked by the flash demon is very high!
And it happened...once again, that lady who calls herself meowmy, got out that flashing rectangle, that she points at me and then invariably it goes click-flash! Over and over!
If that wasn't bad enough, she put clothes on me! ACK! Something about getting ready for the upcoming holidays..OMC! I wish she would learn how to use photoshop...or get a job so that she has no time for that kind of stuff!
But then if she went to work outside the house efurry day, I would see less and less of her...A kitty just can't win!
Well, that big attack was yesterday, and today it was Pipo's turn...hee-hee.
So I paid meowmy back, by getting into the props all over the table...and I even jumped into the flash demon range...bad move! She put a collar on me and made me 'sit' for some more flashes. I thought that if it was sunny that flash thing would not go off...but meowmy said that flash I am seeing in the sun is called 'fill-in'. Whatevfur, meowmy! I don't like having to be in pictures!
And when she was almost done and trying to make me 'au naturel' once again, I gave her a feel of my teeth and claws! OMC! Wonder when she will try that flash demon stuff again!?!
Today is Remembrance Day, so meowmy was wearing a poppy, all day. Poppies are the traditional flower of remembrance, made famous, after the poem about Flanders Fields.
Thanks to all veterans, and to all who gave of themselves for our freedom. We should never take that freedom too lightly, It is very precious, if only for the lives lost trying to attain and maintain it.
(PS: With the shorter and darker days upon us...I know that that flash thing will be put away much sooner, if it comes out of hiding!)
For the record:
This Is Minko's Diary!
November 12th 2010 6:59 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] (This is Minko's diary...)
Meowmy has a big antique cuckoo clock. It cuckoos evfurry 1/2 hour.
She has 'trained' us not to bother it...except Pipo still will jump up near it when Mr Cuckoo bird comes out...but that bird is too fast for him and he never has caught it, yet!
Today I was still having extra energy to be a zoomer kitty and also being cuckoo, myself. Who needs one in a clock when you can be a live one...and not needing to wait for the right time to be cuckoo! MOL!
I had some nip...could that be the reason?...and chased the laser, which led to a tumble romp with Pipo...and we had a make-believe cat fight. It is how we practice staying pouncy and fit. We may need to use those self defense skills some day!
Pawppy came home from work and brought in some dry cleaning. On hangers in very long bags. In my cuckoo-ness, I couldn't resist...so I went inbetween the bag and the counter area ...and jumped an ambush on Pipo when he walked by! Meowmy thought it was so funny, cause that bag was clear, Pipo had no problem knowing I was there...but he still was furry surpawsed when he got jumped on.
Then meowmy was in the bathroom, getting ready for some change of clothes, as she was going outside, to do yard chores...so I jumped in the bathtub, behind the shower curtain...snooped around there for a bit, then out came my cuckoo face, under that curtain. The bottom of it looked like a veil on my head! MOL! (I think I like that crinkly and rustling sound it makes when I bump up against it.)
And then I pounced on Pipo again as he came to investigate who meowmy was giggling at.
Later, That silly fly came back to pester me and drive me to higher levels of being cuckoo...MOL!
It defies getting caught! I shall have to hone my fly catching skills!
It sure is fun to be cuckoo!

[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] Today is a furry spawsial day fur my meowmy!
She got presents, and a big cake! Lots of cards and phone calls, too.
It seems that a long time ago when my Grammy was getting ready for her own spawsial day of birth remembrance, she had to put it on hold to deal with the biggest bestest birthday present she ever had! Meowmy!
That's right folks, Meowmy and Grammy shared their birthdays for 51 years! It sure was a strange thing for Meowmy not to be able to call up her own mom on the first birthday after grammy went to heaven. She is OK and used to it now, it has been quite a few years ago...
So they had this big raspberry and cream cake...and shucks, I didn't even get to share any morsel of it!BOOO! HISS!
Well, I know that I shall get something tastey on my plate later! It never fails! MOL!
Meowmy and pawppy are going out later...not to a real catabration of this day, but to a church dinner, being put on just for fun. They never miss those occasions, so tonight is no different! Except that I can't go along... :(
Well, Happy Birthday Meowmy!
November 16th 2010 1:03 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Energy!
I have tons of it...meowmy thinks she should try to find a way to harness it...and put it to good use, MOL!
I have been all over the house, playing with mousies, paper balls and chasing Pipo. I jumped on the counter to 'help' meowmy when she was cleaning out her coupons, because they sound so wonderfully crinkly and rustle when she handles them. Who could resist that if you are a kitty like me?
I took a brief nap in the sun...when it was so nice as to show itself for a brief moment, and then got back at it!
Then I heard meowmy opening a yogurt container in the kitchen...so I bounded over there, to see if i could mooch some...and I mewed some pathetic mews to get her attention! Then Pipo & dog-guy realized they were missing out...so she had 3 sets of little hungry beggars!
And she heeded the pleas, and I got my spoonful! So that I could refill my energy store! Mmmm! Then I went back to swatting my paper ball all over the place. soon it looked like a big tattered & shredded mess! MOL!
Phew! Finally I decided that maybe I did need to have a major recharging session...aka cat-nap!

Meowmy saw lots of kitties who are our furends. Decisions, Decisions!!
Now regarding the dog-guy!
Well I guess I shall have to give him an extra spa treatment of ear and face washing, cause he IS a finalist in the WCD contest, in the Patriotic section.
Meowmy and us would be thankful if any of you kitty furmilies could go to that place and cast a vote fur him. We would appawsiate that furry much!

Meanwhile I have been keeping Meowmy's lap in the finest of comfort, by lying on it and making a lot of bread for her, so she can have that with her now cooking soup. Mmmm!
I also made sure that she didn't spend too much time reading the newspaper, I sat on it!
Purrs to all of you!

[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Meowmy was catching up with the local news of the day, when she came upon this article.
It just made her heart stand still for a moment, then she got furry upset.
It about an act of cruelty to a cat, just a few miles from our den.
Here is a link to the article, but be warned.
Link for news Article at wwmt.com(Link no longer available)
The poor kitty died as a result of this insanity. I hope no one is looking for their pet, at this time...
It seems we just never know who or when someone will do these awful things, even someone who is in a public office.
In happier reporting I got to spend a lot of lap time when meowmy was at her'puter. She had to console me in payback(MOL) for making her vacuum go all over my territory and steal my furs and scattered kitty litter! And of course I had to go into hiding all that time. OMC! It takes her about an hour to do it all...I got bored with all the tappity-tap above my head, so I went into my cardboard box with crinkled up wrapping paper in it. Very catifying and cozy!

[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Yesterday, meowmy felt compelled to send a link about something not very pleasant, that had been reported.
Today she read something much more pleasant, and joyful even, at least for the furmily involved.
Wishing that all of our tales could have happy endings such as this one:
Happy News: Returned Lost Cat!(Link no longer available)
I think this furmily will have a Happy Thanksgiving fur sure!
(So even inside kitties should have ID collars and microchips...OK meowmy, you're on the spot now!)
Have a great weekend!

[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] My wish, today is that all of you will have a furry Happy Thanksgiving!
May all your day be filled with the thoughts of what you are truly thankful for.
I am thankful, that almost 6 years ago, meowmy took me out of my birth home, where I was wet, dirty, scared and flea-ridden.Even the vet thought that I might be harboring some evil diseases, but I grew up quite healthy and sleek. I may be a bit small, cause I was a runt, but my size is not an issue, when it comes to my bullying techniques towards Pipo, when I want my own way! MOL!
I am thankful for warm,cozy nests, laps and sun-puddles, and yummy food that always seems to be in my bowl...
I am thankful fur my pawrents who love and care fur me.
What more can any kitty ask for?
...Perhaps some cream from the Pumpkin Pie!...or some turkey would be nice too!
Here is another bit of rhyming for the season...
The Wednesday Before...
Its the day before Turkey Day!
We will dance and play!
Have some turkey and some pie,
When later in our beds we lie...
Dreaming of Thanksgiving Day!
Our meowmy will truly have a great Thanksgiving, as all her cancer tests came back negative! Hooray! She doesn't have to go back for another 6 months.
Hope all is well with you and your furmilies, too.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
Purrs & Hugs to all!

[ Leave A Comment | 6 people already have ] I've been such a helper fur meowmy, lately!
I kept the table clear of objects that were going to get in the way of our spawsial Thanksgiving dinner...I jumped up there and pawed the smaller things to the floor. I just couldn't figure out why that made meowmy kind of perturbed?!
Then there was another pesky fly...so I jumped on the end table and got up on my back paws,,,which are furry strong from jumping after that laser tag game-light...and almost had that fly...but meowmy was holding her breath, because she saw the lamp starting to keel over...
I also felt that the nice white tablecloth in the dining room needed some attention from me...so I jumped up there, spread myself out on it...but soon I decided to help with another chore...I stirred the tablecloth! Well you know, I see meowmy stirring a lot of things in the kitchen, which then find their way into the dining room, so I thought I would help with the tablecloth. But again, meowmy was not impressed! What!? She even picked me up and set me back on the floor...with a big sigh. She said it was no use to try and have a nice atmosphere for a spawsial meal, cause Pipo and Minko are always right in the middle of it! Like they want to be the main course or something!
Then she said something scary: 'No warm meat on the table!' That is what my grandpawppy used to always say if someone was on the table who was not supposed to be there...OMC! I am not the food here...I just want some food! MOL!
OK, then If you don't want me there, maybe I can help out in the bathroom.
I ran in there, and jumped into the tub, behind the shower curtain...and gave Pipo an ambush when I heard him follow meowmy in there...I get to swishing my tail...so this is how I can help, by cleaning the tub!
Pipo doesn't like to come in the tub with me...funny how he can be so brave around the dog-guy, but not in the bathroom...'hey Pipo, there's no water in here...come and play bathtub peek-a-boo with me!'
Meowmy wasted some perfectly good and yummy turkey ans sweet potato, the other day. Leftovers...but no one was going to be having those! She dropped them through her slippery butter fingers just as she was going to put them in the microwave!...and if that wasn't bad enough...the m'wave is by our litterbox...and sure enough, most of her meal fell on the box! MOL!
Hiss, though, cause nobody got any! It was too contaminated even to have any of us have tidbits from what might have been salvaged...Shucks!
My paws were right there, though, ready to snag something that might have been missed in the cleanup!
Meowmy has gotten all kinds of red, green and white things out of the closet...she said they were the Christmas decorations...but to me that can only mean one thing...another torturous photo session...OK, bye now...gotta go and hide...
December 1st 2010 9:14 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Today I went all around to each window looking fur the sun...but alas...it wasn't there. instead there were these big white fluffy things coming at the windows. And covering up the grass in our yard. Lots of that stuff that I heard meowmy call snow!
I think it must be cold, too, cause meowmy put on lots of layers when she went out with the dog-guy!
Well, meowmy was gone out most of the day, but it sure was nice to have pawppy close by. He has this week off from work.
Yesterday he and meowmy took a few hours to go on a lunch date! But we had to stay home...
Meowmy put the vinyl tablecloth back on...so now it is not the most fun place to be...and its very hard to stir that one! I think the cloth one will be back for Christmas dinner...then I shall try my stirring act again!
I did get cornered to have a photo session...but it wasn't as bad as I thought! I even came back when it was Pipo's turn...so he had a chance to get in some pics with me! It got put on the We Bees page that we have.
And...I have to once again say concats to my brofur, Pipo, cause he got to be a DDP,again!
I think he must be trying to set a record or something!
I heard meowmy mumbling that Pipo always gets his DDP's when she is going to be gone from the puter!MOL!!
Well, gotta let meowmy hit her own nest now!
Purrs to all and to all a good night!
December 3rd 2010 7:51 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Meowmy put out our two small trees, today. No ornaments as yet, cause we will just remove them...MOL!
Maybe after a few days!
One year when we were still way tiny and really cuckoo, she did not put anything on the trees except beaded garlands...which we tried without success to take off. All we managed to do was to tip over the trees, and get the garlands all tangled up. At this time I am in a nest close to the tree, staring at it...thinking how fun it would be to try my paw at demolishing it...but I better wait till meowmy goes to bed...
At supper, meowmy saw me trying to eat something. Pipo was close by, in case he was going to be able to snag part of my prize!
Suddenly it was snatched away...but not by Pipo...by meowmy!
I was trying to eat a long 'needle' from the Christmas tree! Oh-oh!
Meowmy said that was not a furry good snack...for me or for Pipo! Busted yet again!
I shall have to go and find that fly that still is buzzing around here somewhere...
December 6th 2010 9:54 am
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Meowmy is having hisy fits, becaue we have a broken internet right now! HISS!
We ill come back to play, ASAP!
Please furgive us if we are silent on important things like DDP's and birthdays, et...
Purrs to you all fom this store 'puter!
December 7th 2010 9:10 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 10 people already have ] I will evfur be gratefur to pawppy who got us back on line. Furry quickly, I might add. Not only is he a geek, he is a whiz! Headbonks to him!
So now though we are back, it is furry late so we shan't play, just yet!
We felt so stranded while we were off line!
The store computer let me say my excuses, but we did not get to play there at all!
But at least you knew why we had gone AWOL! MOL!
Concats and happy greetings to anyone we may have missed!
We did see that Samsara had a DDP today. Special concats to her!
Its always fun when pals of ours get these honors.
Will purr more later...meowmy is off to bed...its after midnight!
December 8th 2010 8:30 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 9 people already have ] Meowmy took a quick peek at her e-mail this morning, way early, before she had to be gone all day!
Lo and Behold...I was a DDP! And not only that, two of my furends are DDP's, too...Nadia and Samoa. Concats to them, too!
So I have had to wait a long time to play here...but better late than nevfur!
First of all, I wish to say a sincere thank you to all of you who have sent gifts and messages. I so do appawsiate all of you fur sending them to me. My gift box and mail box are full! Whee-o-whee! My slave will be keeping her fingers busy! At least she has already treated me to some good nip! And a good dose of lap time...
There is this big bag waiting fur meowmy's attention. It has these sparkling, glittering, shiny balls in it. Surely those little balls are meant fur me to be toys to swat all over the floor?! My purrsent fur being a DDP!? WHUT? They are to be put on the tree? Well, then at least I will have a load of kitty fun, trying to snag them and bash them to the floor.
Well, it is late yet again another day has slipped away, and meowmy still hasn't done her Christmas cards fur Europe, or Canada...she mostly can send E-cards, now, but there are some relatives of hers who do not have 'puters...
Good night to all, and may all sleep nice and cozy on this furry cold night!
December 9th 2010 5:52 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] OMC! Meowmy nearly fell off her chair this morning!
Not only was Pipo a DDP, (Concats to him from me, by the way!), I was also a DDP, for the second day in a row! Wow! (Meowmy didn't think that that would even ever be possible with all the kitties who are on Catster!)
Did you read her complaints yesterday about being busy...well, today has been doubly busy! MOL!!
Poor, poor Freckles, our doggy brofur! He is feeling neglected! (Not!)
We got treats in the form of some cheese, some yogurt and some sour cream.YUM! And lots of playtime, and cuddles!
Meowmy was putting laundry away, so I came to help, and saw a big box. There had been pears in there, but now it was empty. So I pushed it open, and climbed right in, making myself a new nest! Peek-a-boo, too!
Later after I got bored with that, I helped meowmy to wrap up a gift that had to go in the mail...I tried to chew the corners of the package, so that the recipient, who is a cat lover, would see my greeting, too. She misses having cats, anymore, but at age 87, she does not want to have any live ones...so she has quite the collection of real looking toy ones! Some of which she got from meowmy.
Then the fun started for real!
Meowmy opened up all the new baubles that were to go on the 2 table trees which we have here.
She had them all sorted according to color and texture...and then she went looking for the hooks. NONE! She dug high and low, and was sure that she had seen them earlier. Eventually she gave up, put all those pretty balls in that pear box and went off to do other things!
The trees will have to wait still another day to get dressed up!
Thank you furry much to so many of you, who sent me messages and gifts, yet again.
Meowmy tries to thank you for each one, but right now there are so many of them (and including a load for Pipo), she hopes no one will be insulted for getting their thanks by way of my diary!
I love you all, and want to purr, and knead in all of your laps, as well as send you some of my patented kitty hair lickings!
(I regularly use my sandpaper tongue on meowmy's hair! She still remembers when her hair was gone from chemo, and I would try to groom her scalp! OMC!)
Now I will purr my good nights to all of you out there in my beloved Catster-land!
December 12th 2010 8:29 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ] This morning the temp was above freezing at 34F.
Then it started to blow and snow..and the temp is now 17F.
The stuff of blizzards!
Meowmy even had to shut the doggy door, the wind was trying to come in the house.
There isn't that much snow, but with the wind, it is furry hard to see anything!
Here is a haiku...a special type of poetry, Which meowmy learned to do from a doggy pal, Zaidie...some of you furs may know him.
Wind is blowing hard,
And the snow is drifting, too,
A winter blizzard!
Meowmy wrote another one about a prettier snow event...
Snow fell through the night,
Covered all with its blanket,
Soft, fluffy and white.
So, there you have it...being housebound is the stuff that creativity comes from! If there was no storm, there would be no poem!
Meowmy hopes that the weather will not be like this when our unfurbros come home from college for the holidays...but if it stays cold, it fur sure will be a white Catmas!Then we can make these: ☃ with all of the ❆ that is around!
Stay warm & cozy!
December 15th 2010 9:58 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] OMC! Meowmy has just seen the little birthday cake that signifies that I have been on Catster for one year, plus one week! How time flies! So much has happened since she started 'showing us off'!
But we and she love being here, and there is so much fun stuff to do. Pipo has been here a day longer than me...but that's OK cause he is a few days older than me!
We both have our meowdays in the week after Christmas! We will be 6.
Wow! Meowmy can hardly believe that!
Seems so fresh in her memory of us being such little teeny fluff balls! And I was such a dirty stinky little runt. Not sick, really, but just very neglected. Now while I am not very big, I sure look a lot more like a real kitty than that first day or two at meowmy's place...even the vet was impressed how I thrived, cause he thought I would not. Meowmy has lots of baby pics of me, but none of that day she took me out of my birth house...
Birthday; this meant that there was yet another excuse fur meowmy to have a picture session with us. I did pretty well, until I tried to eat some of the streamers on the birthday horns...and then I started retching on the picture taking set up! MOL! Just goes to show you meowmy, that I don't like these sessions...but after I was cleaned up, and watched more carefur-ly so that I would not chew that stuff again, she took about a gazillion more pics! But you all will just have to wait until Christmas is done, before I let meowmy show them too you! MOL!
We meanwhile are getting more ready fur Christmas.
Pipo & I got a pawresent from Simone and River...one of their famouse catnip pillows.
Thanks so much!
I attacked the envelope that was holding the pillow, and nearly had it open before meowmy realized what I was doing! Then I tried to climb into the empty envelope, while Pipo had a go at the pillow.
I truly am a 'nip' fiend!
I wonder what I shall find in my stocking fur Christmas, and in my meowday pawresent?
December 16th 2010 2:40 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] My meowmy can be dangerous to be around!
She came in from taking dog-guy fur his daily stroll.
Removed lots of garments...and walked over to me who was sitting on the nice and warm CPU...I stretched out to get my chin scritched and ZAP! I got a shock on the end of my snoot!So I jumped off the CPU and ran away as fast as I could...even before meowmy could apologize about the static discharge on my snoot...
But eventually I came back, and I forgave meowmy, and got my cuddles and scritches.
Be carefur of your peeps who may carry dangerous, unseen weapons on their personal appendages!
December 18th 2010 11:31 am
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Folks and furs, meowmy read this heart wrenching poem somewhere else, but thought she wanted others to read it too...get out you hankies & tissues. This is so true, and why no one should be allowed to give pets as gifts, esp to young children, at Christmastime or other gift giving occasions.
I once was a cuddly kitten
But now I am a stray
'Cause when I was no longer fun
They sent me on my way
They've kept their big watchdog
As he can bark and growl
But I could fly at strangers
If I caught them on the prowl
I slink around their garbage can
I mew outside their door
But it's clear from their behavior
They don't want me anymore
Now I'm cold and hungry
And getting very thin
What have I done to hurt them
Why wont they let me in
I crouch in sheds and boxes
In my bedraggle fur
So shivery and dejected
I cannot even purr
They have another kitten
Their children's whole delight
But probably next Christmas
It will share my wretched plight.
So now that you are in the throes of sniffling...dab your tears away, and read these cute and rather wise words, out of the mouths of babes, so to speak:
Can you say "I love you" any better?
What Love means to a 4 - 8 year old . . Slow down for three minutes to read this. It is so worth it.
Touching words from the mouth of babe
A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds, 'What does love mean?' The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined. See what you think:
'Love is what makes you smile when you're tired.'
Terri - age 4
'Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK.'
Danny - age 7
'Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when you get tired of kissing, you still want to be together and you talk more.
My Mommy and Daddy are like that. They look gross when they kiss'
Emily - age 8
'Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.'
Bobby - age 7 (Wow!)
'If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend who you hate,'
Nikka - age 6
(we need a few million more Nikka's on this planet)
'Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it everyday..'
Noelle - age 7
'Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends even after they know each other so well.'
Tommy - age 6
'During my piano recital, I was on a stage and I was scared. I looked at all the people watching me and saw my daddy waving and smiling. He was the only one doing that. I wasn't scared anymore.'
Cindy - age 8
'My mommy loves me more than anybody.You don't see anyone else kissing me to sleep at night.'
Clare - age 6
'Love is when Mommy gives Daddy the best piece of chicken.'
'Love is when Mommy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford.'
Chris - age 7
'Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day.'
Mary Ann - age 4
'I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes and has to go out and buy new ones.'
Lauren - age 4
'When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you.' (what an image)
Karen - age 7
'Love is when Mommy sees Daddy on the toilet and she doesn't think it's gross.'
Mark - age 6
'You really shouldn't say 'I love you' unless you mean it. But if you mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget.'
Jessica - age 8
And the final one -- Author and lecturer Leo Buscaglia once talked about a contest he was asked to judge.
The purpose of the contest was to find the most caring child
The winner was a four year old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife.
Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman's yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there.
When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy said,
'Nothing, I just helped him cry'
When there is nothing left but God, that is when you find out that God is all you need. Take 60 seconds and give this a shot! All you do is simply say the following small prayer for the person who sent you this.
"Heavenly Father, please bless all my friends in whatever it is that You know they may be needing this day! And may their life be full of Your peace, prosperity and power as he/she seeks to have a closer relationship with You Amen."
The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the most credentials, the most money, or the most awards. They simply are the ones who care the most.
So now that your spirits are once again uplifted, go and have a nice weekend!
Oh, and I love you!

[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ] This is the same entry as Pipo has...to get the word out as best as possible:
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's page:

Christmas/Catmas has come!
After all the getting ready, and stuff like that, it is great to finally say to all furs and furends:
Meowy Catmas/Merry Christmas!
Santapaws has been busy on my page, dropping off prezzies and stuff.
Thanks so much to all of you, and when the catretary has some spare time?!?, she will try to send out thank yous.
We got our Skeezix giveaway, yesterday! That box was the best...I jumped right into it...my bum is small, so I was able to sit in there...then I tried to eat some of the packing crinkled paper...then I found the catnip bag inside the box! OMC! I started to bite that so that there were holes in it...and then nip was flowing out! Heaven! I was nuts! Meowmy picked up that bag to rescue it, and put it in the kitchen drawer! Then she saw me go there and try to pry open the drawer!
Shucks! It still has a baby lock on it from the days when my unfurbros were babies! Busted and thwarted!
So then I went back to the box, and jumped in, and began an ambush on the eggsersizer toy package...
Later meowmy put some catnip in there, and I had fun rolling around. She can't put treats in it unless dog guy is not here, cause he would get a-hold of it...and likely destroy it! That Dog! What a rascal he can be sometimes...but I still gave him an ear wash!
Thank you Skeezix!
Today we got our other gifts, and also our birthday purrsents!
Kind of is a bummer to have a birthday so close to Catmas, but meowmy will be too busy with other things on MY day!
This way Pawppy is home, too!
Then she tried to make some pics...hee-hee!
I was not cooperating too much...but then I smelled the nip! It was in a bag on the dining room table!
I was in cat-heaven...and she has pics of me 'killing' stuff!
One of the very few times when she let me get on the dining room table!
Pipo was there, too, but he was not in portrait mode/mood!
It has been dull outside, and so the camera had to be used with flash, and that is what bothers him...plus the ping! it sounds when it is turned on!
Last night we had fun romping and rustling in the paper wrappings as they were cast off the opened presents...my furmily prefers to open the gifts on Christmas Eve...so they can more focus of the real meaning of Christmas on that day.
They left early this morning to go to church. While they were gone, Pipo & I could smell the turkey roasting...Mmmm!
We got a tidbit of it, too, at dinner time. Now all the peeps and pets are napping...so I guess I shall go and join them fur a while!
Have a nice remainder of this Catmas Day!
December 26th 2010 1:05 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Its Boxing day!
So that is why I like boxes? They made a holiday for us kitties...what kitty can't resist a good box to hide in, ambush someone or poke a paw out of to shag a toy or a passer by!
Or perhaps it is a day to go boxing? But while I often have tiffs with my furbros, I don't think I would want to see a real boxing fight...I am a kitty, and I like peaceful activities!
Actually, Boxing Day is British, also celebrated in other countries, such as Canada. The folks would make up boxes and deliver them to families in need.
It is my furbro Pipo's Birthday! Happy Birthday, Pipo!
It is also my Grammy's Birthday!
She is 92, today...but unfortunately, she has not got much memory of anything these days, hardly knows when she gets a visit, and talking on the phone with her is so hard, because she is very deaf, and never wanted a hearing aide...but now she would probably not be able to properly use it.
We called her yesterday to wish her a Happy Christmas, and now we are waiting for our uncle to go there and put us in touch, so we can wish her a Happy Birthday!
Oh the sad days of life, when we can no longer function very well, and the children become the parents...but we do cherish having her with us, still...even though she had to go to a nursing home several months ago...she kept falling, and uncle couldn't help her properly. She seems to like the added activity there, too...there is more going on around her, than in her home.
I don't know that I as a kitty will get to be that elderly, but for now I will accept the fact that soon I will be also having a milestone marker on my lifeline...all of 6 years!
Meowmy posted up some new pics of me and some of our Christmas and birthday gifts. We got the B'day gifts early...cause the pawrents will be too busy on those days, and also then my unfurbros could watch us play with them!
And there is some pics in which you can see Skeezix giveaway gift. It is blue. Just the right color, I love blue! Thanks Skeezix!
Soon, meowmy will put up some pics for my B'day...
The snow storms of late have not bothered us too much, so we are able to get around quite well, or rather our pawrents!
Hope that the current storm in the northeast and southeast does not cause too much trouble...hope that all our furends in its path stay warm, cozy and above all safe.

[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] OMC! It is my meowday and my furmily has been telling me that evfurry time they walk past me and then I get some extra ear and chin scritchings, too. I love all the attention...but don't think that I nevfur get any when it is an 'ordinary'day! MOL!But today they are just adding some extra loving words...
Well that Jack Frost dude was furry busy at our den this past night. When the big light in the sky got turned on, gradually through the fog...yes, fog at 25F!...I could see that all the trees and bushes were all covered in thick white fur! Too bad it wasn't Christmas morning!
It sure was a wonderfur sight to behold...but it didn't last, cause the sunlight made it fade away, before meowmy could get some pictures.
But it was nice of the Jack Frost Dude to think of making it a spawsial morning fur me! Thanks JF!
Well since I got my birthday gifts with my Christmas presents, together with Pipo, there won't be anything to open up today...but there sure are lots of nice purrsents on my page, here from all of my wonderfur furends! Thanks so much, all of you! I love you all!
Eventually I will try to send out purrsonal thank you notes.
It sure gets busy at our den...with all these yearly catabrations all coming so close together fur us! Now meowmy will have to put up a New Year's pic fur me & Pipo...hope that Catster will not be down...yesterday, when we tried to get on, the furs there said they were taking a bath! At least they came out of the tub after a couple of hours! OMC! Was that a flea dip they were having?? I am glad I didn't have to sit in the tub with them...MOL!
May you all have a safe and fun New Year's Eve, and a furry Happy New Year!

[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] Mewing my greetings to all of my furends for a happy and wonderfur New Year! Wow! 2011, already!
Meowmy found a nice picture of the hoar frost, in our local newspaper:
It sure was a pretty sight!
I have been introduced to a new fun thing...Laundry basket thrill rides!
I got into the bedrooms as meowmy was putting the laundry away. Normally she would have just placed me back out side the door...but dog-guy was there, and he likes to try and catch me when I am at the top of the stairs...so meowmy thought that she would prevent that...so when she went back down, she put me in the laundry basket, picked up the whole thing under her arms and went through the door...dog-guy was waiting, and looking to see where I was...but for once I was quiet and didn't mew or sing...so dog-guy just looked up there for me and when he came down again, I was already there...he looked so confused! MOL! That ride in the laundry basket was great. All the way through the whole house, like being in an amusement park thrill ride! I didn't even try to jump out! Meowmy was surprised!
I shall have to try that again sometime...I wonder if Pipo would find it as fun as I did?
Did any of you feel yesterday's earthquake? Mewomy was still in bed, and she thought that I or Pipo was in the bed, because her blankets were juggling...but I was hiding under the coffee table!

[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] Hey! I was taking a nap, and suddenly I heard all the rustling and bustling in the house...Meowmy was busy with something...she had long strands of beads in her hands, OMC! My favorite kind of toy to chase...Then I saw a box of balls...and the number of balls in the box was getting larger by the second...and then the paper angel caught my attention...and best of all, the big red ribbon from that real wreath on the front door...I tried to grab that, before it was put into the same place as the other things...It would appear that meowmy is putting away all the Christmas decorations, my toys! Boo!
They were fun to bat and swat at...while they were all over the house, doing their job of brightening up the den for Christmas, and for me and Pipo's amusement!
Then I spied that little red basket that Pipo had his picture taken in...a miniature laundry basket!
OK meowmy...could I try that one for a ride, pawlease?!
She did put me in it, and I happily went for another thrill ride, but this time dog-guy was not paying attention! He was bored!
It sure looks bare, now! I wonder when the house will be full of novel toys for us kitties to play with...do peeps decorate for Valentines...?
It is also kind of quiet here, as my unfurbros have gone back to college.
I guess I shall have to be satisfied with my regular kitty toys, now! MOL!
January 7th 2011 8:31 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] OMC! It sure was stinky here!
My mortal enemy decided it was time to make a stink of things, instead of doing its work...but since this machine is no furend of mine, I wasn't too sad...except I wish it had made its stinky smoke in the back porch instead of my den!
The vacuum sucking machine went on the fritz! It even made such a protest that it left a dumping of soot on the carpet!!
Let one of us kitties try to leave dumps in the middle of the carpet! Meowmy was not impressed...but I for one could not be happier...noisy beasts like that should not be allowed to enter our den, and disturb our peace.
Well, she took it outside, and aired out the house. Imagine all the windows being open in the dead of winter! Pipo & I just cuddled in one of our cozy nests...
At least we didn't have to endure the screeching of the smoke alarm, because it was in the process of being replaced...having also gone into defunct mode!
Why is it that stuff always breaks in groups of events...?
So until the sucking machine comes back from the shop to do more work here, I shall be enjoying the peace and quiet, even if meowmy doesn't care for all the extra furs she can see on stuff now! Hee-hee!

[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] Today, after dinner, the sun was shining so brightly...on the diningroom table...and there was a nice plump pile of pot holders in the muddle of the sunpuddle, nevermind that this was a forbidden spot...I decided to sit there and enjoy the warmth.
Meowmy saw this and started to motion to pawppy to show him how I was there, but dog-gut saw this too...He did something really naughty! He just stood there and had a big woof, and suddenly he was up on the table with me! Oh-oh! OMC! He was scary and right in my face. Nevermind that sometimes we are buddies...not this time! There was a scuffle, and off we both jumped, and ran! Pipo had to come over to add to the melee and mayhem!
Now the new plastic tablecloth is full of holes from the claws on the paws...of not me but dog-guy!
Good thing the spawsial cloth Christmas cloth had been taken off a few days earlier! That would also have had holes...sorry meowmy, I shall try not to draw attention to myself when I am sitting in sun puddles on the table...
Meowmy and pawppy were laughing so hard...they almost didn't see the holes...but really, 't know why they should laugh, I thought that dog-guy should get into trouble! He is NOT allowed up there, ever! Not even in sun puddles!

[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] We have been watching the big fluffy snowflakes coming down...but we are not sad that we have to stay inside...where we will be keeping warm and cozy.
We got about 3 inches, and while that is plenty enough as far as meowmy and pawppy are concerned, we are so glad that we did not get that huge dump/blizzard that a lot of other peeps and furs did...OMC! Too much!
While we were watching out of the window, we also saw a big orange creature in the neighbour's yard, near the woods...meowmy saw it, too. She thought it was a big orange cat, but with binoculars she could see that it was a FOX!
Haven't had one here that close in a long time, years actually. There are foxes that meowmy sees now and then in our area, but not visible from our own windows!
The other neighbours a few doors to the north of us, have chickens that roam free...I wonder if this fox snags one for a dinner now and then.
Well, I would like to go into my kitty nest now...and snooze the long night away!I wonder how the poor fox stays warm? He sure had fluffy furs and his/her tail was like a large brush...I think it would at least keep the foxes snoot warm.
January 17th 2011 7:30 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Wow!
Lately there has been just so much noise around our area. I do not care for it, and sometimes meowmy is finding me furry skittish...likely because my poor little nerves are frazzled!
First, there have been a lot of trucks rumbling up and down our road the past few weeks. They are also the cause of a worse noise, they carry big saws to cut down trees whose branches are having the offense of being in the way of the power lines...these trucks also have even noisier machines on them that grind up parts of the trees..like the bigger branches.
And after 2 weeks of peace inside the house, because that evil sucking machine was in the shop getting a heart transplant or something, it came back, all ready to do the noisy stuff again. ACK!
We have had a fair bit of snow, too. At least it falls very gently and quietly...but the plows make our house shake!
And every night when it gets dark there are loud noises outside...we are in an area that has a snowmobile club's trail in front of our home...those noisy machines rumble all around those trails, over and over again!
They even disturb the dog-guy...and make him growl and bark...more racket!
The other night, there was even a siren and then a loud noise coming over us from the sky!
Turns out that there had been a bad accident from some dudes who were partying and then driving...bad combination!
The one man had to be airlifted and the helicopter went right over our house! We are about 25 miles from a major trauma center, so we do get these copters now and then.
And since we live near a National Guard base, they do some flying practice, too...to further disturb my peace and that of all of us peeps and furs.
You would think that country living would be a lot more peaceful!
Have a nice quiet night all my furends in Catsterland!
January 23rd 2011 12:16 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ] OMC! Meowmy was a bit hasty & careless...and she is hanging her head in shame...she emptied a folder in which there were a lot of pictures that she made & sent to kitties...(and doggies, too...), and now some of them have dissappeared into the wide depths of cyberland, swallowed up furefur!
If you are the sad 'victims' of this occurence, let meowmy know, and she will try to get ou a new one to replace the lost one...let her know what you lost and what is was for, etc.
She wants to correct this situation, ASAP.
It happened to her once, too, but her pic was also on her hard disc, so she could retrieve it that way!
Have a nice day, nonetheless!
January 25th 2011 7:46 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] Right now I am in meowmy's lap, snoopervising her typing...and when I looked at the screen I saw my mane! So I shall have to stick around...even though meowmy says I make her tying so much harder...MOL! Hey! Aren't I more important than the 'puter! Yup! I thought so...
The other day, meowmy was making the Valentine's pictures for us...she thought things were going furry well, and then she started to take pics of the dog-guy! Well I just had to see what was going on,and I knew there was feathers and other interesting things there...So up I jumped and this is what I saw:
Minko Checking Out The Dog-Guy...
It almost looked like I was going to be swatting him...or maybe I wanted to snag that fuzz off of his noggin!
Then since this was a Valentine's photo session, I decided that dog-guy could use a smoochie:
Minko SmoochingThe Dog-Guy...
After all that business, I went to the laundry basket to find myself a soft spot to snooze on...But all that was there was a pair of sneakers and some hangers.
Being resourceful, I had some fun with the stuff. I pawed at the hangers and nearly got one into the basket, from where it was hanging on the edge! I wanted to bite it!
Then I decided the shoes were way more fun! I put my paw inside them, but they were empty of 'snaggables', so then I found the shoelaces! The best toy of all!
I could swat them around, chew on them and drag the shoes around, too.
The chewing was most satisfactory, until meowmy discovered that, and put an end to it! Busted! She said those were to be part of her uniform for when she takes her classes in April to be a nurse's aide...well didn't she think I was trying to help her by taking those hard things off the shoelace ends? She would not want to get stabbed by them, would she?
I just will nevfur understand why our humans do not like the things we do for them!
January 27th 2011 7:58 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] Well, when I told meowmy to check her kitty mail, I found out that there was a message from Jezebel.
She got me!
She tagged me!
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.
Here are my answers, not necessarily in order of grump-worthiness...
1) Standing up after I just get settled on her lap! Rude!
2) Using the vacuum cleaner. Horrible!
3) Emptying the laundry basket, which removes the soft piles I was lying on. So not fair!
4) Brushing my teeth. Mean!
5) Pulling out the keyboard over top of me when I am on her lap, while she is doing Catster stuff. I may not be the biggest kitty around, but this still gives me the squishiest feeling.
Now: Who to tag?
3)Klemy Q-tip 134878
If you already are tagged when you get this then just pass the tag on to another kitty who is deserving of this 'honor'! MOL!
You can also consider yourself tagged when you read this, if no one has already tagged you!

[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ] Meowmy has been suffering with this thing she called felon paranoia...or something like that!
Wow! Shouldn't a felon be in jail?
Then she wouldn't need to be having paranoia...Then she laughed and said...Minko it is more like a pear-on-chia...but I am still so confused, cause I have heard that Chia is those pets that grow green hair. I don't want meowmy to have green hair. And pears are also things that my peeps eat...
And why didn't she play with me furry much the last 2 days, is she that paranoid about this felon dude?
She must be worried that all the extra motions will cause more troubles...
Then she actually went away for several hours. She hardly ever goes away on Saturday...
When she came back, she had a little bag and a little pink litter box. She took off her socks, and put her foot in that litterbox! OMC! She is loosing her mind with this paranoia!
The little bag did not have any treats or catnip for me in it...
She asked pawppy to do some of her chores...
And her leg is up on a pillow, too.
Poor meowmy said her big toe got an in-fex-shun...and it was so owie,and looked like a red balloon, (She didn't even let me swat at the balloon...), that she went to some place where they gave her advice and a little bag full of red treats that she has to use for 10 days...
Today, she says it already is making some of that paranoia go away! Goody!
I don't like it when she has these troubles that are so bad they even prevented her from having much shut eye.
She says sorry if she missed stuff here, cause she was so tired and ouchie.
While I would have had fun swatting balloons, I am just glad that I won't have to chase away any felons!
(In case you are wondering the medical term is paronychia, or felon, or ingrown toenail...)
January 31st 2011 8:04 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ] Well meowmy has pretty much gotten her toe back to normal, though there is still a nice evil looking red line where all the swelling had been. Antibiotics are wonderfur when they are needed, so she willl be a good patient and take the full course of them because she does not want or need a recurrence!
She was able to go out and get the foods, cause we are expecting a snow storm/blizzard over the next day or so.
Now that meowmy is better, poor pawppy has the 'flu. He got up at 6 am, and meowmy was surprised to hear him come back to the bedroom furry quickly after that! He said I feel sick! He did not go to work, nor the meeting he had scheduled for the evening. And he stayed in bed. Not even on the couch where we could be his kitty nurses. Hope he feels better tomorrow, because it will not be good if meowmy has to clear the walk and driveway of the predicted dump of snow!
Speaking of not being a good thing...I had to run away from meowmy!
When she came home from her errands, she went to the desk to check on her emails and catster and stuff.
So of course I had to get close to be the snoopervisor. Meowmy was reading something while she was shedding her coat. Hey! Ouch!
Be carefur meowmy! And off I ran. Then meowmy realized she had hit me in the face with her zipper pull on her coat. It is a heavy swingy thing and it swung right into my face! Ouch!
Meowmy came to try and tell me that she was sorry, but I was annoyed with her, and was not going to let her pick me up. Only after several minutes and when the offending garment was gone, did I allow her to pet on me and love on me. Purrs...and I forgave her...cause truly I knew she did not mean to be hurting me.
She could see that no harm was done, except perhaps to my ego!

[ Leave A Comment | 10 people already have ] OMC!
Yesterday when the Blizzard of 2011 was just getting started and the winds were howling here, as the temp was dropping and we were all in the deep grip of winter, I became a Dreamboat.
Perhaps right now it may work better as a dream-sleigh, because of the huge, deep blanket of snow we have here, now.
Or since it is so cold, it could even be called a Dreamsicle, and who doesn't like those? MOL!
The very discerning and beautifur Samoa
picked me to be one of her Dreamboats! Wow! OMC! I shall fall over with the very idea! What an honor to even make the cut for consideration!
Thanks so much, Miss Samoa! I shall wear any boa that meowmy decides I have to model, with pride, as I will be doing it for you! Maybe that is why I wanted to steal the fluffy boa off of the dog-guy, as in a pic in a diary entry on Jan 25, 2011...
I wonder how many lady cats will come by to swoon over me, or try to smooch on me!? MOL!
Well, our road has still not been plowed, and pawppy had to stay home yet another day, because he can't get out! Always something!
We have seen lots of snowmobiles using the road, and some very brave, (or stupid?) cars...
We hope all our furends will be warm and safe through all of this mess!
And what of the poor Mr Phil?
How on earth will he be able to do his 'job' if he can't even get out of his hole to see whether or not there is a shadow? I shall have to send dog-guy over there to help dig him out...he is a master digger, that's for sure!
I sure hope that this groundhog dude tells us that spring will be just around the corner so to speak!
Well that is enough blathering about all this most snowy and dreamy stuff...
Time for a nice cozy catnap!
February 3rd 2011 8:32 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] OMC! I keep hearing all about rabbits! I think that perhaps I wouldn't mind chasing one...or a lot of them...I do not now what they taste like, even though dog-guy has told me about his encounters with not a few of them...
Well, then, meowmy set me straight...It is Chinese New Year!
And this is the year of the Rabbit!
HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR! YEAR OF THE RABBIT 2011
So now all these bunnies and hares and other lupine creatures are going to be evfurrywhere?
Well, I do not know how I will feel after this year is ended...all these furry critters over running the calendar! MOL! And not only that, what will the Easter Bunny think? Will he be a Chinese Bunny this year? Or do the Chinese peeps have an Easter Bunny? What about the EverReady rabbit? Well he can make lots of noise for the celebratory things that go on for a new year's event. And he won't wear out either! MOL!
At any rate, if they are warm and fuzzy, maybe I could line my nesting spot with a few of them and we could be good at keeping eachother warm...that is if I can keep them a way from my dog-guy brofur!
Well enough dreaming...I don't think this type of mewsings and dreaming was what Samoa had in mind when she made me one of her dreamboats the other day! MOL!
February 11th 2011 6:37 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] The other day, meowmy came back from doing errands, she was in a hurry and did not put all the bags away promptly. Bad mistake with curious kitties about!She uses a lot of canvas tote bags, so 2 of these were stacked atop eachother on the kitchen island...she heard a 'preep' sound, which is my 'I am curious' chirping sound, and then she heard a thunk, which was me jumping up on the island. Since I use that for my perch a lot, she didn't think anything of it...then she got up from where she had been relaxing with her tea, and OMC I was the top section of a big tower! My little kitty body was higher than her head, I was on top of the topmost canvas bag, which was further softened by her wooly hat and thick gloves! It was a wonder the whole business did not come crashing down! Now that would have made for an exciting entry, here!
Meowmy giggled at me, and went for her camera, but as soon as I heard the 'ping' of it being turned on, I jumped down...end of the photo opp! Sorry meowmy!
Later I went back up there, but the bag tower had been dismantled... So I found other things to do, one of which is my fave things to pester meowmy with...I was pawing in the doggy dish which is not used for food, but which is kind of a catchall for doggy items that need a temporary resting place, like the doggy whistle! I love to snag the string that it is on, and pull it out of the dish, and then knock it to the floor! I am always testing out the theory of gravity! MOL!
But this time meowmy said, NO...and she took my 'toy' and stuffed it in the drawer instead. Busted, yet again!
I wanted to try a nibble at an extra dog cookie that was in that dish, too, but meowmy took that away, too. Good grief! She nevfur lets me have any fun!
Speaking of fun, Valentine's Day should be a lot of fun...and I do have one of my furry own gal kitties who has claimed me...but it is a secret! She asked me! Wow! So I did not say no, cause it is fun to have a secret Valentine of your own! this kitty was smitten with me even before the lovely and discerning Samoa put me on her official list of dreamboats!
But I really do not have a real girlfurend...or date...let alone a kitty gal to get married to! Meowmy says that fur one, I am too young, naive and I just need to have furends...Well fur sure I do have loads of furry great furends here on catster! Thanks! I love all of you and wish fur you all to be able to be my valentine! MOL!

[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Well, as I mewed in my last entry, I do have a Valentine, albeit a secret one.
So I have composed a little poem fur her, in honor of the occasion. I know that when she reads it, she will know it is fur her!
Minko's Valentine Verse
I have a Valentine,
Lovely as sweet wine.
She asked to 'Be Mine?'
And I did not decline!
So our hearts now shine,
With that cupid's design;
With an arrow so fine,
He made us: Valentine!
Hoping and purring that my Valentine has a wonderfur day, and that all of my Catster furends also have a Happy Valentine's Day!

[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Whoo-hoo!
Today I commemorate the day that meowmy took me from my birth home, which was an awful place, to say the least! I was such a scrawny runt, and while I am still not the biggest kitty on the face of the earth, I have been given a huge helping of furevfur love, of the wonderfur Valentine type, that has made me thrive and become a handsome kitty dude, if I say so myself!
Last night I mewed loudly fur my (secret) Valentine! I hope she was listening!
Tonight I am astounded at all the love and Valentine spirit that is flooding my page and in-box!
Thanks to all who have sent me gifts, messages and pictures.
I shall try and nab my catretary to send out thank you's fur me, but it may be a while, as she isn't able to spend too much time here...and now she just found out that the bottom panel of her van, was ruined by some pothole incident...Hiss to all those wintery woes...
Meanwhile hug your furmily members with sweet paws and purrs, for a wonderfur start to your Valentine evening!

[ Leave A Comment | 8 people already have ] Encased and trapped by the ice, that is! OMC! So much freezing rain! On top of a few inches of fresh snow...so that we feel like we are embalmed by it.
And right now there is more snow coming down. UGH! We want the warm weather back that we had, only last Saturday! Then it was sunny, too, and our grass was totally bare of snow, and Meowmy was even pulling weeds from the back woods! What a change! Old man winter is playing tricks!
We could hardly get out back door open, and the gates were solidly frozen shut.
When my peeps were trying to clear the walkway, they had to get the edge of the shovel into the bottom,and then use the shovel as a lever to break off hunks of that thick ice. They were so thick they broke off in chunks like large patio stones. We could have made ourselves an ice patio! Or set them on their sides to make walls for a fort...
The ice was so thick, and not let the trees bend and sway in the wind as normal. So then a huge tree broke off, right at the place where the branches all start. It left a big hole in the snow and frozen ground. And it just missed clunking on my pawrents back shed. Phew!
A lot of peeps lost power today, but we were not so plagued. Thank you, God!
I think that not a few of our kitty pals have been impacted by this same messy and dangerous storm. Hope that all of you are warm safe and cozy.
We were warm and cozy all day, but we have been missing Mr Sunshine around here.
Pawppy had the day off because it was President's Day, hoping that tomorrow will be having better conditions!
Nobody went anywhere today...it sure was nice to have them here with us!
Purrs to all of you, and to all a good night!

[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ] I was all cuckoo again the other day, and Pipo and I were playing the chase game to its fullest, almost to the point of a tiff.
Well at the end of one of those mad-cat-through-the-house dashes, meowmy heard a yowl/yelp and when she looked up, there was a big wad of some cat's fur floating by her in the air!
A flying furball! She could not find any bald places on either of us...and we were not going to reveal whose fur that was...
Thanks for all the kind and fun comments on my newly posted pics.

[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] I have been quite vocal lately...singing to my toys, my mousies and so on.
And to my pawrents, which I normally don't do too much. but I have been walking up and down the length of the house and miaowing and singing all the way. When I see meowmy or pawppy, I sing even louder...and get all lovey to them. One would think I was a lady kitty in heat...MOL! MOL!
Maybe I am just getting more 'needy' in my older years! MOL!
I had fun in some bags today. I think bags were invented by a kitty person, just for our benefit!
They crinkle so nicely and are great places to hide in, too.
Since my unfurbros have been home all week on their break, I have been blessed with a full laundry basket in which to deposit my furs...even though I heard pawppy say that he did not need a drawer full of kitty hairs, just underwear is what he needs in there...MOL!
Last night I was naughty!
Meowmy went upstairs to the bedrooms which are off limits to any of us furs...and as soon as she opened the door, I shot through it.
It was one time that I was not singing my kitty tunes...
Well there I was, and I ran to unfurbros bedroom, because mostly you can find good hidey spots there...but not this time.
All their 'junk' was on the floor, blocking my access to those places. Meowmy scooped me up before I could get to my plan 'B' of where I was going to hide!
Busted yet again!!
Have a nice weekend, furs and peeps!
(Maybe I shall try the bedroom game again next week, because the unfurbros will be back at school, along with all their 'junk'...)

[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ] Meowmy saw a robin this morning...so even though it is cold and snow is on the ground, God has given yet another sign that soon the long winter will change over to lovely spring! Yeah!
Here is something to think about, meowmy found this in the big spiderweb of the world:
This is by a daughter of a murdered couple in Raytown, MO,
who had a Bible and Bookstore on 63rd street ..
"When I had to testify at the murder trial of my parents a week ago, I was asked to raise my right hand... The bailiff started out "Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth?"
I stood there and waited but she said nothing. She said "Do you?"
I was so stunned I blurted out "What happened to "so help me God'?"
She came back with "Do you?" I replied yes, but I was perplexed.
Then the judge said .. "You can say that if you want to."
I stopped, raised my right hand, and finished with "So help me God!"
I told my son and daughter that when it came time for them to testify, they should do the same.
I don't know what can be done about it, but it's time for us to step up and DO something.
NBC had a poll on this question.. They had the highest number of responses that they have ever had for one of their polls, and the percentage was the same as this:
86% to keep the words, 14% against.. That is a pretty 'commanding' public response.
It is said that 86% of Americans believe in God.
Therefore, I have a very hard time understanding why there is such a mess about having
"In God We Trust" on our money and having God in the Pledge of Allegiance.
Why is the world catering to this 14%?
This seems to get worse daily.
Lets not be part of that 14%, OK?!
Our land was built with God's good providence, so let us never forget that! Pass it on if you wish! Maybe we can get the 86% back up to 100%!"
Purrs! Have a great, wonderful God filled day!

[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Meowmy went to the place
where the trash has a space...
She saw me with my face,
Guilty, and in disgrace,
Cause I had taken a wrong pace,
In my desire for the sun's embrace,
And so I did race
Out of that space,
with very little grace,
To the kitchen place,
Where I did erase
that guilt from my face,
and then I could retrace-
my steps, just in case,
Meowmy needed my kitty loving sweet face!
Yes I am a naughty kitty sometimes. I love to go through the doggy door into the forbidden back porch area when the sun warms that room up.
Well, when meowmy went to put the trash away, there I was, but I didn't expect her to come in there, let alone to open the door, so that spooked me. I tried really hard to go back in the way I had gone in there, but the doggy door was blocked by a box! Huh?! Oh...Meowmy was holding the door open for me to get back in the kitchen but it took me a moment to figure that out...MOL!
Busted yet again!
Meowmy gets worried when I sneak in there, because it is not a cat proof room, dog guy guards it as his territory, she can't see me when I am in there, and there is another doggy door to the outdoors...OMC! If I discover the fun of the great outdoors! I shall be like my angel furbling and go exploring in the back woodsy area...but meowmy says that is how he got sick...from a mosquito bite...heartworm. Well, I do get medicine for that every month, but she still does not want/let me go there...sheesh! It was nice and warm in there meowmy!

[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] That's right, furs! She did a nice job fur me...she learned how, and then she decorated my page. Right now it is all in green themes...who knows what she will think of next?
I and my furmily continue to pawyer for the sadness and devastation in Japan. May things soon be stabilized there.
I am also purring hard for the many sick and ailing kitties that I know of here in Catsterland.
And also for the furmilies of not a few new angel-kitties.
These kitties and their furmilies are hurting so much, so any purring and pawyering that each kitty does is good for them.
Hugs to all of them.

[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] OMC! It is so windy here this evening...the garbage can is being tossed about like an empty shoebox!
The big over 40mph gusts make the house shudder.
There is some rain, but no warnings other than wind. It has been furry warm here today, around 70F, and now at 9pm EDST, it is still 67F.
Hope it doesn't last too long, all this noise is disturbing my peace!
And there is noise of a different kind at the den of meowmy's unfurbro's family...shouts of glee, no doubt.
Her niece is the goalie for their city's peewee girl's Hockey team; The Avalanche. They won their division, and so now they are going to be in a tournament...Hope that the wild noises of glee can continue there after this is over!
Here is a link to a video clip of the highlights of that game.

[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Its official! Spring Has Sprung! Hip-hip-hooray!
And is that why there is snow and sleet in our forecast?
Last night there were such thundering storms and lightening shows! We tried to find a quiet spot, but it was hard to escape from all that racket!
Something about the March lion!
Well he was not using good kitty manners...
Pawppy's baggage is all over the house as he is going on a trip for his work, followed by another trip to go and see our grand-meowmy.
I have been checking all the bags out, chewing on the tags and nearly crawled into one of them..imagine if pawppy got to his hotel, and I was in his luggage!?! MOL!
Meowmy is staying home to look after all of us. So we will not be lonely kitties and pup...
The other day when meowmy was cleaning the 'box' she thought it was odd that the stuff in there was all in tiny bits...she just thought that a 'pee-clump' had broken up...but then she saw that it was all bits of somefurs newmies...(Newman's name for doo-doo)...so she said it looked like confetti poops! MOL!!
She began to worry that perhaps one of us had some runny poopy-newmies, but hasn't seen any more of that, and all the following newmies have been 'ordinary'...just as stinky as ever, though, because Pipo just will not cover them up! Yuck!
So meowmy's theory on the 'confetti' is that I the big box digger was overly diggy, and got that newmie all broken up...
Well, that is all from this end, I think!
Purrs to all...may your newmies be regular and not confetti...that makes a lot of extra work for the meowmies and pawppys who have to go sifting...

[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] One of our favorite Catster families needs some major help. They are really needing to rehome one of their veruy precious kitties, Shelly Sue.
This family has been on catster for over five years now, spreading their love and charm around, but now they need help.
Shelly Sue is a very pretty kitty and also has a charming purrsonality.
She will be a blessing of returned love to whomever can open their home and heart to her.
Please take a few moments to read about her and her plight.
If you are not the family who can do this, then perhaps you could pass this info along to someone who does.
Somewhere I know, there is another meowmy or Pawppy for Shelly Sue.
Thanks to all of you for your purrs and thoughtfurness at Shelly Sue's time of need.
Purrs of thanks.

[ Leave A Comment | 19 people already have ] That dog robbed us of our chance to snag a real mouse! He and his buffoon ways...and that torpedo snoot, always into our cat business...well there was this mouse that climbed out if the cold air vent and took a fast run over the carpet...and who knows where it is now, Dog-guy went after me when I tried to catch that mouse dude! Hiss!
Well meowmy saw that mouse, too...so she put out traps...but we want to snag that rodent ourselves...so much more fun that those little toy ones we have to make do with...I and Pipo have been prowling about because we know that mousie is in here...and we want it!
I have to say I was naughty today, too...counter surfing because I wanted to lick some tuna that meowmy had spilled on the counter and I could still smell where that had been, cause she had only wiped it up, not washed it away...but I think a mouse sandwich sounds so much better!
Bye, off to hunt me a mouse!
April 1st 2011 8:49 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 14 people already have ] Well today I was a DDP! First time this year! Over a silly mouse!
Oh well, you gotta take what you get...MOL!
Thanks to all my furry pals for the comments, messages, pictures and prezzies!
This morning when meowmy got up, the first thing she did was check on the set traps...negative. OMC! She thought that silly mouse was going to set up shop in our den someplace...she saw that we were very interested in another part of the livingroom, so she got out some extra traps that she was going to set in that area, out of our reach of course...
Well she took that robber dog-guy for his daily stroll, ate breakfast and did some things on the computer. In otherwords...dawdled!
When she was going to get the traps ready, she thought she would first go and see where she would put them.
I was in my cozy nest, resting with Pipo and meowmy just smiled at us and said, guys why can't you clean up after yourselves...because there were lots of toy mousies all over the floor and we sure like to tear them up, so some of them were quite tattered looking.
Suddenly meowmy shrieked so loud we both jumped!
Mousie...the real one from yesterday was lying in the middle of that toy mousie pile, just like one of them! MOL! MOL!
April Fool, meowmy! Its a real live dead one...how about that!
She about fainted I think, because she just stood there for a moment...this mouse dude was not a mess or chewed on or anything...and no bait out to cause a sudden death in our presence...
One of us had snagged it when it decided to go exploring...or whatever mice do...Meowmy thinks Pipo probably got it, because he was more interested in stalking where he heard all the rustling noises it was making!
Minko & Mouse
A closer one...
Minko & Mouse, closeup
And a final sniff:
Minko & Mouse, final sniff
Pipo Had to smell it, too:
Pipo & Mouse
Anyways, meowmy let us have a final sniff of mousie, then she took it out for a mouse funeral...
It has been identified as a deer mouse.
And that is the end of the mouse-tory!
April 10th 2011 5:37 am
[ Leave A Comment | 10 people already have ] Well, I have not had anything furry exciting happening, since the mouse episode.
I did sneak into the back porch a few times...
Spring has rather dutifully arrived with its April Showers; plants are coming up and the bluebells have started to bloom under our weeping cherry tree.
One lonely little crocus is blooming, meowmy thought some naughty squirrel must have been hungry over the lean winter months...too bad we don't get outside, I would have given that tree rat a run for his crocus meal...
But we did get to enjoy the outdoors yesterday, the windows were all opened, so we could have the fresh air and enjoy the spring scents wafting in on the pleasant breezes.
Today is cloudy and storms are in the forecast:(
Meowmy is starting a class, tomorrow. Full time school.Followed by getting a full time job if possible.
This means the my time to romp, knead and purr here will be a lot less. That makes me feel sad, but all of my Catster furends will not be furgotten, just put on the back burner as it were...Meowmy also will not be able to help Pipo & I make those picture badges anymore, they are very time consuming.
Pawlease furgive us also if we miss celebrating any occasions, such as DDP's, birthdays, and so on, with you.
I will try to convince meowmy to come and purr here as time permits...I hope she can find lots of that...the chores, homework and stuff like that can wait, MOL!
I will miss it here, this is such a fun place!
If you hear a huge YOWLING it is just me and Pipo having withdrawal symptoms...
April 23rd 2011 8:09 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Well! Meowmy wasn't kidding when she warned us of less time here on Catster!
But she did mange to find some time to make some of her pictures for our furends 'occasions'.
We have been able to sneak around in the diaries, too, most evenings, though not as thoroughly as in the past.
I am currently holding down Meowmy's lap, while she is typing fur me...so that she is going to have to do these diaries or Pipo & I shall be unhappy kitties!
Not a whole lot has been going on...we had a lot of dreary days, with no sunpuddles to speak of! But today the sun was back, and spring seems to have taken over the upper hand in its war with the Winter...at least for now! MOL!Today we had our windows wide open all day, the sun was glorious and the breezes were warm. Perfect!
I have jumped on the counter in the kitchen several times to get meowmy's attention when she is making yummy food in there...like today she made salmon. She hears a little chirp, and there I am right beside her. A sure way to get her hands on me instead of doing her work...MOL!
I am being naughty like that, too when meowmy and pawppy are eating their meals, lately. I never did much of this in the past, so I think it is a form of protest at being alone for so many hours with only Pipo and the dog-guy when pawppy is at work all day, and meowmy is at school.
Well, yesterday meowmy was home from classes, because of it being Good Friday! Yeah! And today is Saturday, another meowmy stay at home day.
Meowmy said that she is doing well at her class, she had 95% on the first exam, and 100% on the one she took a couple of days ago. Next comes some hands on training, that should get her furry tired out, so that when she comes home she will get in the recliner and we can keep her in there...MOL!
I want to take a moment to wish evfurry one a furry Happy Easter!
May 5th 2011 8:20 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 6 people already have ] Yup, You read that right! My catretary is so slow with taking cat-tations, from me, so that I decided to do it my self...with my dainty meezer paws, aka mitts...MOL!
But that made meowmy feel sorry for me, so she did take it over, sigh, I was going to mew all kinds of kitty tales...
Well whatever! It has been quite a long while!
Easter is almost 2 weeks ago!
Mother's Day is just around the corner, and then there will be the 2 holidays at the end of the month, Victoria Day, and Memorial Day. Meowmy has been way busy, so she may just 'recycle' some pics. to keep up with those days...but not have the stress of a photo session. I am not too sad about that! MOL!
Meowmy has finished her class, with an A, but the studying is not over, yet, because she has to take a state exam, soon.
Of course, then she will be going on a job hunt. Maybe she should take us kitties with her as she hunts, after-all, we are so much better at stalking and hunting than a human, MOL!
I like to wash dog-guy's ears, but yesterday, he was too stinky for that! He found something really smelly to roll in...EEUUW!
I didn't even want to get too close after he got cleaned up...because then he had other odors on his fur...
My unfur bros came home from college...briefly...then they disappeared again...though the boxes here are all over the place! Meowmy says we could get into the storage business!
They should be back in a couple of days, then there will be plenty of laps top sit on, and knead.
Meowmy put a cardboard tray in the laundry basket...she wanted to bring it upstairs...but first I had fun chewing and scratching all over it! MOL! I bit big chunks out of it! Good thing it wasn't going to be used for anything very important! Just storage...of unfurbro's things...hee-hee!
I wish that meowmy would have let the boy's boxes be in the livingroom...that would have been tons of hide & go seek fun, as well as being great for scratching all over!
Well, I need to go and have another longish kitty nap...and get myself ready for the next days catventures!
May 6th 2011 8:11 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] Since it will be Mother's Day, very soon, I thought all you Moms and meowmy's in Catsterland would enjoy this piece of garnered wisdom:
JUST A MUM?
A woman, renewing her driver's licence, was asked by the woman at Registry to state her occupation.
She hesitated, uncertain how to classify herself.
'What I mean is', explained the woman at the Registry, 'do you have a job or are you just a ...?'
'Of course I have a job,' snapped the woman.
'I'm a Mum.'
'We don't list 'Mum' as an occupation,'housewife' covers it', said the recorder emphatically.
I forgot all about her story until one day I found myself in the same situation.
The Clerk was obviously a career woman, poised,
efficient, and possessed of a high sounding title like, 'Official Interrogator' or 'City Registrar.'
'What is your occupation?' she probed.
What made me say it? I do not know. The words simply popped out.
'I'm a Research Associate in the field of
Child Development and Human Relations.'
The clerk paused, ball-point pen frozen in midair and looked up as though she had not heard right.
I repeated the title slowly emphasizing the most significant words.
Then I stared with wonder as my pronouncement was written, in bold, black ink on the official questionnaire.
'Might I ask,' said the clerk with new interest,
'just what you do in your field?'
Coolly, without any trace of fluster in my voice,I heard myself reply, 'I have a continuing program of research,(what mother doesn't); in the laboratory and in the field, (normally I would have said indoors and out). I'm working for my Masters, (first the Lord and then the whole family); and already have four credits (all daughters). Of course, the job is one of the most demanding in the humanities, (any mother care to disagree?); and I often work 14 hours a day, (24 is more like it). But the job is more challenging than most run-of-the-mill careers and the rewards are more of a satisfaction rather than just money.'
There was an increasing note of respect in the clerk's voice as she completed the form, stood up and personally ushered me to the door
As I drove into our driveway, buoyed up by my glamorous new career, I was greeted by my lab assistants -- ages 13, 7, and 3. Upstairs I could hear our new experimental model,(a 6 month old baby), in the child development program, testing out a new vocal pattern.
I felt I had scored a beat on bureaucracy! And I had gone on the official records as someone more
distinguished and indispensible to mankind than just another Mum.'
What a glorious career!
Especially when there's a title on the door.
Does this make grandmothers
'Senior Research associates in the field of Child Development and Human Relations'
And great grandmothers
'Executive Senior Research Associates?
I think so!
I also think it makes Aunts.
‘Associate Research Assistants.'
Feel free to relay this important info to any Mom, Aunt, Grandmother and Great Grandmother!
They will be blessed by the knowledge that their hard work is truly a career to be honored and respected by all!
Meowmy's and others like them included...MOL!

[ Leave A Comment | 6 people already have ] Wow! I heard meowmy say that she saw all different kinds of colored snow today. on the pavement and on the ground...What is the world coming to?
Some of it is even in our own backyard!
What? Oh, good! Meowmy said that it is just lots and lots of flowers from the trees and shrubs that the storms have beaten off of them. Of course they did look prettier on the trees than on the ground!
I was getting worried, I had been hearing all this rumbling and grumbling outside, and the wind was so strong. It got very dark yesterday, and it wasn't even close to sunset!
Meowmy even had to get off of Catster for a while, something about too much lightening...I really miss the bright sunshine that we had a few days ago, even the windows were open. Now it is so damp and dank, UGH!
Maybe this is why I got into bullying mode last night...Pipo was lying on the CPU. Humph! That is my favorite place...well I walked up to him, stared him in the face and dared him to stay...Pipo gave me a big hiss, and wonder of wonders, he got up and stalked away..and I got my way, MOL! I may be the smaller dude here but I am the King! MOL!
Purrs to all!

[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Here is something kind of cute...esp for those of us who need to have a giggle or two...perhaps you may not 'get it' at first, then suddenly you will! MOL!
Ingenious way to stimulate supermarket sales!
-----Sense of Freshness....
A while ago a new supermarket opened in Topeka , KS .
It has an automatic water mister to keep the produce fresh. Just before it goes on, you hear the sound of distant thunder and the smell of fresh rain.
When you pass the milk cases, you hear cows mooing and you experience the scent of fresh mown hay.
In the meat department there is the aroma of charcoal-grilled steaks with onions.
When you approach the egg case, you hear hens cluck and cackle, and the air is filled with the pleasing aroma of bacon and eggs frying.
The bread department features the tantalizing smell of fresh-baked bread and cookies.
... I don't buy toilet paper there anymore...
Did you have a good laugh? I hope so, it will make the sunny day we are having today so much more enjoyable!

[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] The weather is playing wet and noisy games, tonight. Wow! So loud that the whole house was rattling. And gusts of wind! The neighbors roof shingles that were laying on the roof from being removed to make way for new ones were just lifted off and were sailing in the air! OMC! The workers will have a rude surprise in the morning!
We had to turn of the computers here for a while because the storm was that severe. At least we didn't get the tornadoes that some places got. Weather can be rather fearsome and scary at times, and tonight its no exception. At one point I had to go and look for a hidey hole...
Meowmy says that this is the heavenly way to have an early fireworks display to help catabrate Victoria Day, which is the Canadian holiday that is tomorrow.
We did have a nice start to the day on Thursday...then we had drizzle...then Friday we had a nice day...ending with rain, and last night we had more drizzle....good only for the grass seeds that pawppy put down on some bare spots...and for raising the water levels in the Great Lakes...which is good for the fish that swim in there...who knows how much rain came with today's storms!
Purrs to all!

[ Leave A Comment | 9 people already have ] Well, both Pipo & my dog-guy brofur wrote about the rainy sunless weather we have been having...but I shall write about something that has me worried...another dog-guy! OMC!
I heard that perhaps a black furry terrierist may be making an appearance here...along with another unfur...I would like to go out and meet the Murphinator, but first I shall have to get over my fear of strangers...cause of the other unfur...even though meowmy told me she is her sister.I have seen her before, and her dog-guy, too...but it has been a long while...so it will be like starting all over again.
This pup is smaller than my brofur, but just as NUTZO! Afterall he is also terrierist so it could get rather catciting round here, come Monday.
I shall have to recruit Pipo to do his 'beat up the pup' routine...MOL!
I wish everfur a Happy Memorial Day and a safe holiday. Take some time to say thanks to the many servicemen, past and present, who serve so bravely and for some they even give the ultimate gift to their country, their lives. We truly owe them our safety and our freedom.
Let us hope the Mr Sun comes back, too. I miss my sun puddle time!
May 29th 2011 8:30 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 6 people already have ] Well today I sure had a lot more to worry about than the imminent arrival of the Murphinator...we had a worse kind of zooming going on here, the zooming of a raging severe thunderstorm, which caused all the warning sirens to go off, because there had been sightings of a tornado. And while we here at our den were spared, the peeps about 8 miles south of us got hit by a probable tornado. There is a lot of damage in that area of town, including where meowmy does her shopping...so now she will have to hunt for our grub in another venue...OMC! There were some peeps hurt when big trees fell on their vehicles, and on their homes, but as far as we know right now, no one was killed, thank the Lord.
I guess there will be more reports and news of this in tomorrow's news venues...but what we saw tonight made meowmy and my furmily thankful that nothing worse happened. There was no church this evening either, and if the furmily had gone, they would have had trouble getting home because the main highway was covered with downed trees in one place! That would mean that the alternate rural tree lined roads would even had been a lot worse...
Well, after all the noise and rain was done...it was sunny! Can you believe it? But there were no sunpuddles because the sun was not shining in my sunny south window by that time anymore:(
Maybe tomorrow? I sure hope so!
Hope everyfur has a wonderfur Memorial Day!
May 31st 2011 8:20 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Well the town we live near is doing major cleanup patrol! What a mess!
Hopefurly they will be having the power back on in a day or two, because with the heat we are having, I am sure they would like to get the AC's back on.
So many trees down, pulled out of the ground as if someone was just pulling up weeds! OMC!
Well the fur-eign pup was here. He woofed his way in yesterday afternoon.
But he hardly gave me the time of day!
I was worried for nothing! He didn't even chase me...and he seems to be a lot quieter to me then my own dog-guy, MOL!
Pipo had to give him one or two rounds of smacky paws, but nothing too frightful...he liked to go outside, so that meant he was not on MY terrain inside!
Well this morning after he ate his kibble breakfast he got his leash on and home he went.
Hey, I kind of liked this Murphinator dude! He was pretty good in spite of being a dog-guy...
The worst indignity, though, from this visit, was that Pipo & I had to be 'locked up' in the front room during the night...our Auntie sleeps in the living room, and we are in no way allowed to be out and about during that time...because she doesn't want a nice cozy and warm kitty blanket...MOL! Her loss, I say!
(At least we had a kitty box, food and water...plus a comfy recliner, so it wasn't like we were totally deprived...but we really would have enjoyed a peep to sleep on, and perhaps a doggy pillow, MOL!)
Back to normal now!
June 4th 2011 8:26 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 8 people already have ] On behalf of Pipo & the page of We Bees Siamese, I wish to thank all the kitties, and yes a pup or two that have been sending all of us gifts in the form of those cute kitty hearts, to 'Share the Love'!
It is fun to receive them and read the loving messages inside them too.
It is fun to send out our own, too, MOL!
We hope that this 'freebie' hangs around for a while longer!
June 5th 2011 7:01 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 6 people already have ] Whoo-hoo!
When meowmy checked her e-mail early this morning, she saw that I was a DDP!
So now I have been collecting way more hearts! Thanks to all of you!
There sure is lots of love going on here.
So hearts and DDP is a great combo in my opinion...
I had a great day, starting by helping meowmy to read the newspaper, by sitting on it, afterall aren't I newsworthy today? MOL!
The sun even sent me long lasting sunpuddles to while away relaxing hours, while the furmily was at church.
Meowmy also made the observation that it has been a whole week now since those awful storms, and here we have had lots of sun, warm weather and NO rain! Perhaps there will be begging for rain...but not anytime soon, pawlease!
Purrs and love to all! ♥ ♥ ♥
June 6th 2011 12:54 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 6 people already have ] OMC! I am in big time troubles now...not because I just did the biggest puke evfur but because meowmy could tell by the evfurdence therein what I had been up to...or rather out to...
It was a huge wad of GRASS! Well pals, there is no kitty grass growing inside our den, so meowmy knows I was outside...munching away after going out through the dog-guy's doors...she wonders when I did this...but as usual these are MY secrets nevfur to be divulged...
At least meowmy knows that Pipo & I get heartworm chews evfurry month, so she does not have to worry about that...which is likely how my furbling-angel Simba met his untimely end, may he rest in peace...
But now meowmy has to worry that I will add this into my regular routine...she hopes not!
June 16th 2011 1:22 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 9 people already have ] Here is a rather cute story! Meowmy unstuck it from the big worldly web that we play in sometimes...good thing she doesn't get stuck in it herself! MOL!
God & Adam God said, 'Adam, I want you to do something for Me.'
Adam said, 'Gladly, Lord, what do You want me to do?'
God said, 'Go down into that valley.'
Adam said, 'What's a Valley?'
God explained it to him. Then God said, 'Cross the river.'
Adam said, 'What's a river?'
God explained that to him, and then said,'Go over to the hill....'
Adam said, 'What is a hill?'
So, God explained to Adam what a hill was.
He told Adam, 'On the other side of the hill you will find a cave.'
Adam said, 'What's a cave?'
After God explained, He said, 'In the cave you will find a woman..'
Adam said, 'What's a woman?'
So God explained that to him, too.. Then, God said, 'I want you to reproduce.'
Adam said, 'How do I do that?'
And then, just like everything else, God explained that to Adam, as well.
So, Adam goes down into the valley, across the river, and over the hill, into the cave, and finds the woman.
Then, in about five Minutes, he was back.
God, His patience wearing thin, said angrily, 'What is it now?'
And Adam said....
(YOU'RE GOING TO LOVE THIS!!!!!!)
'What's a headache?'
Giggles and laughs!
That was cute, Meowmy
Meowmy is in a happy mood so this helped to keep it going!
She is happy because she [passed that state teast she had to take...so now she will be able to get herself employed...and we will have long hours away from our furends here...but we will corner her whenvfur we can to make her play fun kitty stuff! Catster is the best!
June 19th 2011 6:59 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] I was a good kitty today...MIAOW!
When pawppy went for his usual Sunday nap, I helped him relax with one of my good kitty massages...aka kneading...on his belly to help him relax.
Then he let me stay there even though it is warm and humid today. (Our house has AC but we keep it set about 80, so that is still a lot warmer than in the winter when we set the furnace at 69.)
It was great to have a Pawppy Pillow!
Since it is Pawppy's Day, I guess giving him a spa-type massage was my purrsent to him!
I helped him eat his snack super, too, of cheese and crackers! The cheese was so yummy! I let him keep all the crackers...MOL!
When he went to bed though, even though I lurked at the bottom of the stairs and mewed sweetly at him he did not want me to help him knead the bed and him into dreamland...BOOO!
If you ask me there is a double standard here...I can help him nap, but not sleep for the night:(
What's up with that, Pawppy? And remember it is Pawppy's Day! I just wanted to help you and be nice and purry for your trip to dreamland.
I hope all my furry pals had great day with their Pawppys, dads, and fathers or whomever the masculine influences are in your lives.

[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ] Yup! You read that correctly!
Meowmy was so mean to me yesterday!
She nabbed me when I was giving her some of my loving headbonks, and...stuffed me into the cat carrier! The nerve!
Then she had the audacity to put Pipo in there with me!
Then we felt ourselves moving and soon we were in that other cat mover called a van. OMC! We sang and miaowed all the way, as loudly as we knew how...it was our way of protesting this mean and uncalled for treatment...nevur mind that meowmy calls it caterwauling and yowling...we call it singing...and it was not a love song, believe me! OMC!
Well apparently it was *that time*...for a v-e-t visit...
She (the v-e-t lady) looked into the carrier, and I was in the back, looking at her with BIG eyes...round with fear...afterall, she is a stranger and to be avoided at all cost!
Well the carrier was turned on its end, and I was dumped out! What an indignity!
Then she poked and prodded and stabbed me two times! I need to go and find a kitty lawyer...
She did say that my teeth looked great! Well that made meowmy smile so I guess that was a good report.
My weight was 8.4 pounds...down from 9.2 of last year.
Well, I am the most active of the two of us, running after and jumping and rolling and what ever, to catch that pesky laser light. All the food I eat gets used up in the energy I expend in play!
I was pronounced healthy and stuffed back into the carrier...
I did not do much singing on the way back home...
At least on this trip, I did not get as humiliated as last year...I left no purrsonal donations in the carrier or on the v-e-t equipment! Just a load of my furs! OMC! I shed tons when I feel stressed!
Now, today at least I am allowed to nap as long as I want...

[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Today meowmy was going to try and make some more pics for Canada Day. Hmmmph!
I decided that it was not going to be happening. There was too much noise outside...those Blue Angels were roaring around and some other noisy jets were using my airspace as their regrouping area...
Sooo, Since tomorrow is Canada Day, that means things need to be RED. Yes, Red. I decided meowmy didn't have enough RED on her...so I scratched her arm. Now I only feel bad that I didn't make a double red line to mimic the Canadian flag..., though there is a smaller blob beside the first line that I could imagine being that Maple Leaf...
Well, she yelped louder than the dog can bark...and that was it...hee-hee. I shall have to remember this technique for some other occasion of communiCATing...
So now that meowmy is all ready for July 1, she can put on her spawsial shirt, fly the Canadian flag on our porch, and then go to the air and hot air balloon show...she says she hopes the weather will be nice.
HAPPY CANADA DAY!!
Happy Canada Day to all my furends, and esp my Canadian Furpals!

A FLEA!!(This link no longer works...)
This flea dude is so big, I think I gotta go and scratch it off of me...
Have a flealess day, OK?!
July 15th 2011 3:29 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ] Well Pipo has done a lot of yowling...because now that meowmy will be starting fulltime employment on Monday...things will be a lot different around here, at home and with us on our beloved Catster.
Here is a link to his diary, so you can read about it there:
Pipo's Yowlings of July 15, 2011
July 15th 2011 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!
Well goodbye, but not furevfur, and we will be here now and then as time permits...
I love you all!

[ 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 have lots of mews and miaows...mouse songs, pawppy went behind the door mews, and I want what you have mews. Meowmy says I can sound furry pathetic...and she always giggles that I don't have a typical meezer 'voice'.
2. Litterbox! Cover your business or let some other kitty cover?
I cover! And I have no problem hopping in to cover Pipo's business, too! Cause he makes stinkies and leaves them to disperse their pungent aroma to the air...I am a 'dig-to-china' box user...good thing it has a cover!
3. Happy! Favorite Daily Routine?
I like when Meowmy opens the yogurt container and then I get my dab on her finger to lick off. And I alwys make sure to be with my peeps in the room where they have the stash of nip!
4. Hiss! Least Favorite Routine?
Brushing my teeth...why does meowmy torture me like that, it is so not catty...but at least I don't yowl at her like Pipo does, MOL! And that vacuum cleaner is the evilest invention evfur!
5. Ding-Dong! What do you think about visitors to your house?
Yikes! Where's the nearest dark hidey hole and how quickly can I get in there? And I will stay there for a while even after the all clear signal is sounded.
6. Friends! Do you like other animals?
Yes, I love my kitty furbling, Pipo and I love my dog-guy, MJF. I am not too sure about that other pup who visits here once in a while...I have not been introduced to other furs, except a mopuse, and I just did normal kitty things with that critter, MOL!
Here is a furend 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 | 10 people already have ] Boxes have a certain magnetism ...they grab my attention, and attract me directly to them...so that befur I know it, I am right in them, MOL!
Big ones, open ones, little ones, tall ones, full ones, empty ones...it makes no difference! Get me in sight of a box...and they are all MINE!
I jump in them , bite into them, claw at them, 'dig' in them, hide in them and pounce on unsuspecting passers by when I jump out of them...I sleep in them too, the smallest ones are the best for that, because then I can use the sides for a pillow.
I rip them up too, because it is so satisfying to feel that paper come away from them when I bite them and get some between my teeth. Meowmy says I probably do as good a job keeping my teeth clean that way as she does with the toothbrush...MOL!
There is a furry small box on the organ bench that I like to curl up in, it is so small that mostly my tail hangs out...but when I am in a kitty ball, the box is just right as Goldilocks would have said...
The other day, I was watching a bug crawl on the top of a tissue box...and I tried to snag it, but it went into the box...so I pawed around in there through those cellophane 'windows' that are on tissue boxes...but that pesky bug just hid even deeper in there...suddenly meowmy saw that my whole head was in that box, and I was wearing it!
(She said that the box magnet in there was furry strong.) I backed away, and slid off the table I was on...so undignified for a mancat dude kitty...sheesh!
At least that got my head out of the tissue box, and I stalked off, with my tail straight up...because of course I meant to have done that...

[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ] Miaow!
Pawppy has a cold, so I wanted to keep him company and help enforce the rest he needs.
I was keeping his arm warm and he was napping...suddenly I heard a yelp, but not from the dog-guy.
Pawppy said that I had made him some souvenir holes in his arm..he said fur no reason that he knew of, I just bolted off of him, and his arm of course was under my taking off back legs...and claws...oops!
But he wouldn't let me back on his nice comfy lap when he came back..and he was grumpy, too...MIAOW!
And he wouldn't let me follow him to bed either...he just closed the door, leaving me to mew piteously at the door...nevfurmind that I am nevfur allowed there anyways, MOL!
Well today he scritched me under my chin again, so he has furgiven me, I think!
I just hope that I will be allowed to warm up his lap the next time he goes to his recliner...
August 3rd 2011 8:52 am
[ Leave A Comment | 12 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 October 25...how about that! Next October 25, 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...
Meowmy had completely furgotten that she had even entered Pipo & I in that 'contest' and no one had sent her an e-mail or anything, Sheesh!
August 13th 2011 11:00 am
[ Leave A Comment | 6 people already have ] The past two days were so wonderfur! Bright, sunny and not humid or hot. Pleasantly warm and meowmy had all of the windows wide open! I just love that. We can sit in front of our windows anytime, but when they are open we can feel the breezes and sniff the outdoors. Always so tantalizing and interesting. We can hear the birds singing, the neighbors kids playing and we can hear some of the larger bugs buzzing by the screens. Sigh...I wish all of the summer could be this glorious!
Sigh...today it has been one thunderstorm after another...so of course there is no sun, and all the windows are shut...perhaps later in the day we may be able to enjoy some fresh air again:)
Have a nice weekend wherefur you may be!
August 24th 2011 9:23 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 8 people already have ] This morning I was following pawppy around so that I could snoop in his business, and learn all about what ever he was doing, and his breakfast looked good too, MOL! Then he went up to get dressed...and of course up I went, too...but I was not allowed in that area; never am, shucks!
So the door was gently closed in my face...the nerve!...and I decided to sing my song of self pity over being left out...
Not a good idea, I guess...for the dog-guy decided he didn't like my song or whatevfur, and he came up the steps too...and growled at me...and forced me to go back down. Well! I was going to try and sneak in the bedrooms when pawppy opened the door to come back down, but not this time...
Well, dog-guy decided this was fun for him, so he started to chase me around around and around the dining room table...and I jumped upon it, but there was his snooter looking at me...so I got down and tried to escape to the livingroom...another dog safe place...suddenly Pipo was there, all bristly like...and he HISSED at dog-guy who stopped in his tracks! Pipo gave him a mighty smacky paw and another and another...then he stalked off to see if I was OK...and he sniffed me and started to lick me.
All through this 30second or less episode, meowmy had the gall to laugh! She said it was so funny and that we three furs are like a circus act. OMC! Has she no pity for me?
Well, I am so thankfur that I have my brofur, Pipo to protect me...but of course I am kind of dumb...and soon I was looking for dog-guy to sniff him and wash his ears...MOL! Will I nevfur learn?
Purrs and more purrs!
August 28th 2011 7:16 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ] Do you have more purrs left in your purr engines?
I sure hope so...
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 | 7 people already have ] Better watch out, Bos'n Minkarossa-Rumpelmeezer is ANGRY!
Avast! Ahoy there Catster Peeps!
Ya'll better watch out, cause when I is annoyed and hissing I bees a spitfiring Meezer-cat...and right now I is a pirate cat, too...
Since when does adding a photo, make all the frames and captions walk the plank and fall into the deep blue sea?? Tell me pawlease! Arrgghhh!
Has any other fur had that flea bite them? This is more like a wasp sting though...first it said that I had to have a plus membership to add another pic, and 20 was my limit...huh? My plus is good until Feb, 2012...and there were only 113 pics.Plus is good and you get 200 pics.
Shucks and sheesh and AAARRGGHHH!
So meowmy put frames back on the pics, but doesn't have time to add new captions to the pics...OMC! What next!?
For some strange reason the comments, and tags are all still there, at least they were not forced to walk the plank into cyber space. UGH!
Well, now all my furends will have to just imagine what those captions all said, MOL!
Anyways, Now I am the boatswain (Bos'n) and a hissing spitting meezer pirate cat...and PipoFang is my Captain...OMC! I thought I was the bully kitty in this lair...oh, pardon me, this ship's galley.
Have a fun Talk Like a Pirate Day!
It is 9-11 today...and meowmy's thought go out to all those who remember and have been affected by those horrid events of 10 years ago.
We also hope that all our furends are safe and dry if they are being in that flooded part of the country...and that others are safe from all those wild fires in the drought stricken states.

[ Leave A Comment | 4 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!

[ Leave A Comment | 21 people already have ] Hello furry pals!
Well though I haven't written anything of worth fur a while,It seems that the Diary Gal liked it anyways...
So...Today when meowmy has to be gone for centuries befur she can play with me here, I shall just have to patiently wait for her to help me reply to all the sweetness that you my furends have sent to me on account of my DDP.
Thanks in advance!
And thanks for all those pirate flags that are also adorning my page since Monday. How cool was that!
Well, I gotta let meowmy run off now...I guess her human commitments take precedence over mine, MOL!
September 25th 2011 7:11 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 9 people already have ] That's me! Escaper caper! I did that a few days ago...when meowmy was outside on a nice sunny day. Humph! Hiss!
I so wanted to go out there too...
So after dog-guy went through his doggy door, I just went through after him. That is what that door is for, right? Legally escaping, right?!
Well out of the corner of her eye, meowmy saw something greyish and fluffy...she thought that there was a squirrel there that dog guy did not know about, OMC! MOL!
Then she realized it was me. So she relaxed...
She then remembered that we were outside, and I am an inside kitty! But she was mowing the lawn...so she took the lawnmower near so that I would hear it...hoping that the noise would frighten me to go back where I belonged, she knows how much I hate the other wicked noise maker that fur sucking machine...
It took me a bit, but then I did scamper back inside from whence I had come...but I was bummed because not only did I not get to eat any grass, I saw that meowmy was cutting it down! Sheesh!
Meowmy is worried about this escaping I am doing, not only because I might get all those fleas and ticks on me,(We are only protected against heartworm, because dog guy gets the full treatment, and we are not [supposed to be] going outside), (She doesn't want to use chemicals on us...), but that if she doesn't know that I am out there, I may decide to go exploring and go out of the yard and onto the road, or to the neighbor who have a dog that may not be as kitty furendly as mine...
I guess that either she will have to splurge and make that doggy door an electronic one or start using chemicals on us that she really doesn't want to.
Oh the joys of being owned by your furbabies!

[ Leave A Comment | 8 people already have ] We need to get our engines tuned up so they can run smoothly and purrfectly fur Ingen, who is missing...she escaped from a motel during a long trip to the furmily's new home.
She must be so scared, wet and cold right now...
Please purr and pawyer as hard as we can so that she can be reunited ASAP.
Me & Pipo are already purring furry loudly...PPPUUUUURRRRSSSSS...

[ Leave A Comment | 10 people already have ] OMC! I am a DDP today!
Thanks in advance for all the comments, P-mails and prezzies that are coming my way, already.
Hugs to all of you!
We have so many walnuts that before meowmy cleaned them up, it was like walking on a field of hard croquet balls! You just couldn't walk there, and there are so many still hanging in those trees that we have, that one there will be hours & hours needed to clean them all up, and two, you need to wear a hard hat if you go near any of those trees, MOL!
The squirrel dudes are having a feast fur sure! Esp in the back where the countless yard carts-full of the gathered nuts have been dumped!
Speaking of feasts, this is the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend. October 10, to be exact. Meowmy will not be able to do anything because she has to go to work...and she has to work the entire weekend for our own US Thanksgiving...bummed is the term she uses about that.
But the turkeys will not mind that in this home at least, there will not be any big meals with them as the guests of honor!
Purrhaps at meowmy's nursing home, there will be a feast set out fur the employees...at least in November.
Happy Turkey Day to Meowmy (anyways) and to all our Canadian relatives and furends!
Happy Thanksgiving in advance to the US ones!
But...first we have to catabrate Yowl-o-ween! BOOO!

[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ] Meowmy said she is leaving us for a few days in the care of Pawppy...
She says she will miss letting me give her the di-cat-tions for comments and mewing at her my approval of those pics/mementos that me and Pipo like to send out...please accept her apologies.
Stay well,and keep having fun, romping around here on Catster.
Purrs in abundance to last till I am back here.

[ Leave A Comment | 6 people already have ] Last night Pawppy came back from his unexpected and sad trip to Washington, DC.
He had been with Grammy and then had to stay even longer to do the funeral stuff after she passed away.
He will be going back there again in a few weeks to deal with some of the other things that this type of event 'generates'.
Well, we were happy to see him of course, and meowmy even more so!
Dog-guy was totally nuts!
He came in so late that he just parked his luggage down and after a snack and some chatting with meowmy he went to bed...and left the bags for us to investigate and keep warm!
He also brought in a big pink box.
But it wasn't for me or Pipo...it was a belated birthday cake for meowmy!
Meowmy had to work on her spawsial day, and no one was here for her, except us kitties and the dog-guy.
Well when she came home from work that night we gave her lots of purrs, headbonks and lapwarmings...and somefur left her a pawresent...of a piddle-puddle...just outside the box...hee-hee...we have not let her in on the perpetrator of this deed which happens about once a week or so...but she thinks it is Pipo who does it...of course *I* am an innocent kitty...MOL!(Pipo is lazy about poo covering so that is why she thinks he stands in the wrong place to tinkle...whatevfur!)
Today mewomy threw away a good blanket that she could have let me use to knead and nap on...but she said 'No, you have enough kitty beds and perches already."
It was an electric blanket that she had to replace due to its demise...and it also had a scorch mark on it...OMC! We could have had a house fire...shudder! OK, then I guess it was justified...but couldn't you have just let me & Pipo keep it warm until it had to go to the blanket dump?
Well, that's all folks!
We are cuddling in one of our nest sites...cause it is a cold night...

[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] I was lurking under the dining room table when I smelled some yums!
So I jumped right up there, even though I know it isn't allowed,and even less so at meal times...MOL! Hey peeps, I am a CAT!
Well right under my sniffer was some red stuff on a plate and pawppy was furry concerned that I was going to nibble his Mousse Cake...
Um...I thought it was Mouse Cake!
Shucks, I got duly replaced to the floor with the admonition to keep 'Four on the Floor'.
What will I do when I smell all the yums that are sure to be there when the Feast is there later this week?

[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ] OMC! It is Thanksgiving today!
How I watched the yummy things being done up in the kitchen, and lurked there to shnag some tidbit...
How I loved all the pets, and warm lap time.
How I loved washing the dog-guy's ears! MOL! (I really do do that...)
And I could go on...
Oh, and not to furget that the other day, meowmy once again got a great report form her oncologist...no cancer detected...Praise the Lord and all her furmily is furry thankfur fur that!
But not the least that me and Pipo are thankfur for are all the great furends we have here! Catster is a blessing fur sure.
Thanks to all of you!!

[ Leave A Comment | 6 people already have ] Today has been strange...this morning the windows were noisy with rain pounding and pattering on them along with a strong wind. Brrr!
I did not go to the window seats around here at all, staying cozy was more important than spying on the outside world!
Then it was quieter, but colder, and very grey in the sky, way darker than ordinary clouds.
No sun puddles to speak of, last I saw one of those is but a vague memory, MOL!
Then the pattering and pinging started on the windows again, ice was coming down.
Then just before it got dark...the snow started, and now there is already a deep pile of that white fluffy stuff. About 5 inches. Evfurrything has caps on them...and dog-guy does not want to go out at all...but fur some reason he doesn't know how to use a litter box like we kitties, do. Maybe we are smarter than dogs?!
I am thankfur post Thanksgiving to be warm, dry and well fed on a day like this...and meowmy stayed home all day...wonder of wonders! Pawppy came home early, too.
Maybe she will be staying home tomorrow, too...she will not want to go to her regular Wednesday meeting, and there is no work on her schedule!Hooray, she can put up the Christmas decorations so me and Pipo can figure out how to get at them...
Maybe those snowy piles are a good thing afterall...and they do kind of look purrty...except if you have to go out to drive in that stuff.
Stay warm and cozy my furends!

[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Meowmy got out a box of cards today...snail mail versions...and I helped her get them ready to mail out to some of our elderly furmily and furends who do not have these confusers like we do. (Maybe that is a good way to stay in a less stress zone?!)
She had three little piles of them sorted according to what country they need to go to. Well I laid on them, and started to roll on them too. Afterall, if they are meowmy's peeps, then they need to have my scents on them too, MOL!
So when meowmy looked on the table to put the next card, OMC! She shooed me off of there...shucks meowmy, I was only trying to help!
Then I went off to find some other kitty style monkey business...pawing baubles out of bowls that were on another table as a decoration...oooh, that was fun! MOL!
I hope you are all having fun helping to get your dens ready for this season of joy!
December 8th 2011 10:38 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 11 people already have ] Well...Meowmy went to her work today.
That happens a lot, not unusual...but today since it was quite cold, dog-guy did not go in the backporch so he can go back and forth at will, but he had to stay indoors for about 9 hours...
Well he greeted meowmy with a lot of exuberance and woofs when she got back...and we skulked around.
Oh-oh was the first thing meowmy thought of...what happened?
So after she took off her coat...she thought she would do a walk round to check on stuff...it didn't take but a moment to see that one of the trees was flat on the floor, the star top was beside it, and the one angel on it was somewhere else, too...And the large Delft Blue pot that the tree was standing in was on the floor, too...OMC! That is something that came from meowmy's parents home...but it was not broken, thank catness, Phew!
However the carpet was covered in bits of soil and dirt. Huh? there wasn't any plants in there...then she realized that under the stand in the pot had been the remains of a potted plant that she had been too lazy to clean up, MOL! serves her right! Well now WHO knocked the tree over and who pawed out the soil bits?
And WHO chewed off some of the fiber-optic fibers and just left them on the carpet...?
Well we just mewed at meowmy and thought she would think dog-guy did it...but actually there were no doggy paw prints there...let alone any other evidence!
So...she is sure that I did it...because I like to do major inspections of stuff, and that little felt angel looked like it could have been a catnip toy...but what about Pipo who likes to chew on junk?
I guess she will nevfur find out...because there were no flies on the wall to do any tattle-tailing! MOL!!
Have fun with your decorations, we sure did, and meowmy thought that semi naked trees would be boring! Hah!
December 27th 2011 9:52 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ] Christmas has come and gone...I hope that all of my furends had a lovely time. I do know that some of their peeps have been sick, so I wish them well!
And I also wish that all the sick kitties will feel better soon. After all, we are going to be starting a brand new year! Take your medicines, and eat well!
I had a grand time jumping in and attacking all the loose wrappings when the gifts were opened here. We got some new mousies, and Pipo & I have promptly lost/hidden some of them already! Poor meowmy just can't keep track of where they always manage to go, and these were too fat to fit under the appliances, a normal hiding pawlace here...
Meowmy was at the computer and suddenly she heard a big ka-thunk! She nearly had a heart attack, she was so startled! Well, I had been trying to munch on the fiber optic strands of one of our 4 table top trees...I gave a tug...but I did not achieve my goal entirely, because the whole tree fell down!
So I jumped down and was trying again, but meowmy and even the dog-guy did not allow that...shucks, I hate getting busted!
Meowmy made the Christmas dinner yesterday because she had been at work on Christmas Day. Secretly I think she was just catabrating Pipo's birthday instead, MOL!!
She made 2 pumpkin pies, but we only got to sniff at one of them...the other went to the neighbors. Whatever! Doesn't she know that we wanted to indulge in it?
She made a yummy turkey, too. We could smell its beckoning aroma for hours!
I was underfoot when meowmy was getting it ready to put on the table. I mewed with piteous mews...and...the begging worked! I got me some white meat! Never mind that it was just a teeny cube...I scored some! Pipo got some too, but he decided to let me eat his, and dog-guy stole what I didn't gobble up fast enough! Dog-guy knows that I will not beat him up the way Pipo does...because he and I are furends!
Meowmy had a new red table cloth on the table...a cloth one. I made sure to test it for softness and added some of my furs to the table settings...but to my chagrin, meowmy was not happy with that gift and the quality control. Busted again!
There was a nice bottle of wine to go with the dinner, but of course we were not offered any...but...meowmy put the still damp washed and hand dried glasses on the table to make sure they were completely dry befur setting them back in the wooden cabinet.
She furgot about them and went to bed. When she got up this morning...all of them were lying on their sides...and there was more kitty evidence on that red table cloth, and some of the baubles were out of the decorative bowl that meowmy had put on the table...the furs she saw were long and almost white. Aha! She said that Minko had left his calling card! Sheesh, meowmy, you busted me yet again!
She didn't yell at me though, because she was happy that while I had knocked over those glasses, I had not broken any...and now they are safely back in the cabinet.
I wonder what skills I can practice tonight?
I better be carefur, though...soon it will be my meowday, and I need to stay in her good books, MOL!
Happy Birthday to me, and Happy New Year to all my furends and their furmilies!!

[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] Thanks fur all my Christmas cards, purrsents, comments and pics/mementos!! Snail cards, Ecards and comment cards right in my page. I love all of you fur taking the time and thought to send them!
Thanks for all that lovely looking mistletoe!
That sure was nice of the Catater peeps to let us have that for free!
There are a lot of smoochies going on here in Catsterland..
Thanks for all the purrsents that were already sent to me fur my birthday. I am excited that tomorrow (well, today actually because it is past midnight in the Eastern time zone...)is birthday # 7!
The vet says that makes me offurcially a senior, though in Catsrland I am not yet an old furt...MOL!
Wow, you kitties are all so pawsome and thoughtfur!I wonder what meowmy has up her sleeve fur tomorrow...I know I shall find out early, cause she has to go to work again, after 3 days off...
Sorry that my catretary has been rather lax in sending out thanks, hence this entry! MOL!!
December 29th 2011 10:40 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 10 people already have ] Meowmy came home late from her work, so I had to sit patiently and await her fingers to help me get on here... at least I had pawppy's lap to enjoy...
...and I had a pawsome time doing the same with meowmy before she left for work, and upon her return, too!
No disasters happened...no mischief, either...I guess I am trying to build up my balance of 'good' before the next 'Ho-Ho' days arrive!
I have gotten so many gifts, presents, comments and pics from my pals! I am overwhelmed!
Soon I shall attempt to get meowmy to help me send out my purrsonal thanks.
But fur now here is a wee verse to try and convey my deepest thanks to all of you:
My cup is overflowing with kitty joys!
I am singing a song,
Though Meowmy calls it noise...
There are so many gifts,
They form a length furry long.
Since it late,
and Meowmy just entered the gate,
To our den...
I gave her my pen,
So that on my behalf,
She can say:
Thank you from my bursting kitty heart,
For all the love you sent me today,
On this, my Birthday!
Purrs, and more purrs!
I love you all!!

[ Leave A Comment | 12 people already have ] Well, well!
Today meowmy helped me look on Catster furst thing...and we saw that I was a DDP!
Nice way fur me to get the new year started off... especially since now the Christmas decorations have been put away until the next season.
Already the inbox is full of gifts, comments and pics! THANKS!!
I had meowmy post the pics in my biofields, sort of like a permanent record and display. One day she will have to be moving some of the older ones off of there, or my page will become miles long, MOL!
Well, the sun is shining, meowmy has to go to work (hiss), and I want to take a sunpuddle bath/nap...More mews later...

[ Leave A Comment | 20 people already have ] I smelled the bestest nip today! Pipo got a package, and inside was a catnip cigar from River's Happy Dance Catnip Company...and Pipo was savoring the wonderfur aroma...and ...and...I snitched it right from under his paws! MOL! He said I was a thief, but I saw he wasn't really digging it yet, so of course catnip being involved, I got ahold of it to do it 'justice' furst! MOL! I just had to have my fix!
Later I did some chewing on the envelope, too...and even dog-guy had some time ripping at it!
I just don't understand why Pipo didn't want to pawlay with that cigar anymore after I had been hugging and biting it...MOL!
Meowmy said maybe she should have taken a pic of me to send to River instead of Pipo...MOL!
January 17th 2012 8:54 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] Yup, I do this all the time...MOL! I roll it along the floor like a teeny soccer ball, then I grab it and give it a bunch of bunny kicks, and hug it and bite it, and roll it along to the next hugging stop.
Anyone would think it had catnip on it, but the only thing on it is dried up dog-guy slobber...MOL!
I like the fuzzy texture, too.
Today meowmy got out her vacuum cleaner...OMC! Panic attack! I even got trapped in the front room because meowmy started on the stairs so I thought she wasn't going to come in the front room...mostly she starts there,, I have figured that out, then the livingroom, then the stairs and then the rest of the house...but not today, Cat only knows why!
Sheesh, doesn't she know we thrive on routine?
She was furgiven though because she retrieved 14 of our lost toys...mousies, paper balls, and so on. Even a large furry catnip ferret, MOL!
Sure enough, that was the furst one I took out of the toy basket...way better than any tennis balls...and I sang my mousie song: Mewy-mew...meow, mrouw, mewy-mew, MEW!
January 25th 2012 9:51 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 10 people already have ] Meowmy is wearing a rainbow these last few days...an arm of many colors, green, blue, purple, yellow, pink, and so on...and now she is able to spend longer hours with us, at least for another week...Yippee!
Oh, sorry meowmy, sorry that you got an unexpected rainbow and now you have to stay home from your work, because that doctor dude said so...and your rainbow is covered up, so only those with privilege can view its beauty!
You see, she was trying to be a good samaritan, to one of the neighbor pups who was loose from his gal, and she instead fell down, right on her wrist. Ouch! Now she is wearing a removable splint to keep it protected...but xrays did not show any breaks, just severe bruising and inflammation...OMC! Poor meowmy.
Good thing she can still get on here with me and Pipo...and dog-guy.
Dog-guy got a box full of presents from his pal Cooper, who is one of the many furblings of Rory, Tundra and Manytoes, whom most of you must surely already be aquainted with.
Well, meowmy made a slide show of me, Pipo and dog-guy opening up that big box of treasures. If you don't like doggies, well, then don't click on the link, MOL!
You can see me and Pipo in some of the pics in the slide show.
Presents From Cooper and His Family!!
( It didn't want to post here, sorry folks...)
Thanks all of you fine furry pals, in New Mexico!
February 3rd 2012 6:13 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] Meowmy got brave today, and took out the hated vacuum cleaner...well Pipo & I had to endure its noise a lot longer than usual, because meowmy was being furry clumsy with it, and so we sort of giggled from a safe distance, because she was doing this with only one paw...um, I mean arm, because of the ouchie on the other one...which is still furry sore my pals...she is keeping the ibuprofen factory in business, and the muscle rub/liniment one too...MOL! Meowmy is just as stubborn and tenacious as that terrier dog-guy that lives here with us...
Sorry meowmy I just had to laugh, the scenes are funny, not you with your ouchie...
Anyways in the later evening hours, pawppy was watching some TV in his recliner...so I jumped on his lap...after a while I decided that I should have a taste of his skin, who knows; there is hair there, rather sparse compared to mine, but I decided to groom/taste it anyways. Pawppy seemed to enjoy his mini bath, which I continued to do with my sandpaper tongue for a while, until I heard meowmy get out the catnip container.
Vroom! I was off of there quick as a wink...to get my fix!
And that folks and kitties is all I have to mew fur now!
And by the way, soon it will be my Gotcha Day, which is also the same as Valentine's Day...It is always great to remember the love I have here on the day of love and Gotcha!
Simba from the KCK group made me a cute pic to catabrate the occasion with:
My Gotcha Day Is Coming UpIt wasn't there anymore...sorry...you will just have toimagine it, MOL!!
Happy Gotcha Day to me!
Happy Valentine's Day to all!

[ Leave A Comment | 17 people already have ] Little me has me a Valentine. I thnk that is so fun and I was about to start 'hunting' but then...well, nevfur mind, I have a purrty gal kitty to 'Be mine' for this spawsial love day.
I am all excited and my head is spining trying to tink how to make her a happy kitty. Well, unfortunately the puter here has major issues, so I cannot send her picture gifts...but I can purr softly a load of sweet nothings to her...OK, then off I go...
February 12th 2012 8:24 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 15 people already have ] Meowmy got an old computer from pawppy's office, and she could install the plugins on it, needed to make kimis...just in time for Valentine's Day, YAH!
Well of course!
I now have my furry own Valentine, so it is only right that there should be kimis made, MOL!
My Spawsial Valentine is the furry sweet and demure MINUETTE, I think we make a great pair!
Maybe I should learn to dance, because afterall, her name is a dance, how romantic!
Well, Here is the kimi that meowmy made right away when the plugin was working:
MINUETTE & MINKO
But almost as soon as she was done she noticed that another kitty furend had used a almost identical one...so meowmy made a second one:
Minuette & Minko (Second Version)
So now the decision that is hard is, which one do I like better?
Purrsonally I much prefer the furst one...lets hear it from you furs, now...
Minnie has them both, so she too will give her idea on this dilemma.
Meanwhile I am getting all excited about Valentine's Day!
I sent Minnie some gifts already, now I can hardly wait fur the real day...just 2 more sleeps...at least for meowmy, I take a lot more, MOL!
Well, off to catnap land!
February 14th 2012 8:20 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ] Well, tonight I am absent from here...even though it is my Gotcha Day and Pipo's too...and its Valentine's Day, too...well that is why I am absent...I am on a date over here with my sweetest!
Minuette's Valentine Diary
So meowmy will have to wait...before I can direct her typing to thank all the kitties who sent messages and prezzies to me. Pipo and our WBS page...though I think meowmy did do a few before I knocked on Minuette's door...
And to set the record...yes this is my Gotcha Day...and Valentine's day...but, I was not a purrsent from pawppy, nor was Pipo...we just claimed our love onto meowmy that day...MOL! She actually paid $$ to bring us here, even though I was sort of rescued from that nasty ladies house, yuck! It was so dirty and stinky there...I was all wet, too...that lady had no sense about kitties at all...and meowmy said she would call the authorities if she tried to advertise any more kitties...
She told my older unfurbro to go and get the big towel in the van, so that she could dry me off, and I mewed so piteously that she just took me right out of that house as quick as she could and into the warm van...and then to my new den...where it was clean, dry, the food was easy to get, and my nest was soft and warm. And there was this other kitten there, too..who hissed at me! The nerve! MOL! Pipo is that way, he likes to vent his feelings...
And there was this dog-guy, too...but that is a whole 'nother story!
When the vet saw me, he was appalled, too. He told meowmy that he thought I was going to be a kitty loaded with sicknesses and other bad things...but no way was I going to let that happen and I proved him wrong! I am just a wee bit small...but only in size!
So now you all know my kitty-story of how I was gotcha'd!
Purrs to all, and Happy Valentine's Day!
Bye...off to Minnie's...

[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ] Meowmy says she has to recycle some pics because we can't access the ones on the 'dead' computer till pawppy fixes it...
but I keep hearing that recycling is a good thing to do, so I guess I shan't complain...and besides I think it means that she won't make new pics either...MOL!
OK, off to help search for the old pics on my page...somewhere...
February 18th 2012 10:42 am
[ Leave A Comment | 12 people already have ] Meowmy calls the act of rolling and acting all lovey dovey, complete with purrs and head bonks, my love-rubs...I don't even need any catnip to get this way, just give me a nice soft spot, or say hello to me and make me think I will get some chin scritches is all it takes...
Yesterday I got quite a scare when there was a stranger in my den, knocking things around in the cellar, and even in the kitchen...meowmy said he was fixing that filter she uses to keep our drinking water nice and pure. I didn't care one whit that he likes kitties...nope I am only fur MY furmily and no others!
Well, I had to hide fur so long, that after he went away, I decided to do some love-rubbing to de-stress myself...on the organ bench, which has a nice soft cloth on it. ( Pursonally I think that was put there for my benefit, not to protect the wood from the claw-mementos of our scamperings...) Anyfurs, there I was love-rubbing all over the corner of the bench...and I grabbed the corner with my paws to do some heavy duty head rubs...when...WHOOPS! THUD! I suddenly felt the floor under my body instead of the organ bench...OMC! Did I fall??
Well, I rolled myself upright and bee-lined it out of there befur anyone could giggle at me...too undignified. Somehow in the background I heard some muffled guffaws...
I now declare organ benches under scrutiny for kitty endangerment.

[ Leave A Comment | 6 people already have ] Well, kitty pals, if you think you are having some deja vue, you truly are not being weird!
Pawppy has not had a chance to try and fix our catputer, yet, so there is no way to get the pics off of it...so meowmy has done some more recycling. Well if it spares me getting my pic taken, I shall acquiesce and enjoy the reprieve!MOL!
Well, though usually we would be cheering on the Go Blue team of Michigan, right now its the green season...though the weatherman dude says we can expect a big dump of that white junk tomorrow night...UGH!
Somehow I think that winter is not done with us yet, and it doesn't want us to enjoy the green season of St Patrick's and the upcoming spring! So we will just have to dream!
Enjoy what green you may have!
February 28th 2012 8:56 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 16 people already have ] I just love to jump into meowmy's lap when she is sitting, preferrably at the desk...because then I know she will be there for a bit...
I start by using her leg as a scratching post...then I try to butt my head under her arm so that I can make a clear path to her lap...with some determination, I will succeed!
Then once there, I start digging in her lap with deep kneads, Oh, I think I am just giving her a nice massage from Minko's Massage Mart!
Then I will stuff my noggin under her arm and try to burrow into that space...so she has to stop working on the confuser and pay me attentions!
If I am ignored I will just try to lie on her arm, and purr loudly so she will fall for the 'aww' factor ploy!
Sigh, sometimes that fails too, so I just have to be a good lapwarmer...

And mewed some more-o.
Cause I was happy-o,
And full of joy-o;
I snatched some kibbles-o,

Then sang some more-o.

[ Leave A Comment | 13 people already have ] Meowmy told me I had a P-Mail from JEZEBEL, who told me that she had 'tagged' me!
What? I do not wear any tags...Oh, sorry Meowmy, I wasn't paying attention, she meant like a game...
Well, OK then here goes!
This game is called kitten tag.
Sheesh, that is strange, JEZEBEL is no kitten, MOL! I am all grown up, too, MOL!
The game is: What are your three fondest kitten memories?
My Gotcha Day.
I was in this old and really dirty house, and the lady who was trying to 'sell' me, had me in a carrier with my 3 furblings, all together with a can of wet food and another one with water...what was she thinking!
Well, I was the only blue one, which meowmy wanted, so she took me out of there, rubbed me in a towel that was in her van, and said I was NOT going to stay there a moment longer!
So I went into a dry box type carrier and then soon I was HOME!
The warm soft bed that meowmy had waiting for me, and toys and food...I was surely in kitty heaven! Except for Pipo who had also just arrived a bit earlier! (On the same day.)
We did not try to play with each other for several days, MOL! Then we became furends and partners in kitty crimes!
The big warm lap that was my pawppy!
I could purr, knead and sleep there forevfur!Second best to the lap was the bright sunny windows here, so Pipo & I can spend hours looking outside, while basking in sun puddles.The best is when those windows are open so I can smell the scents and feel the breezes,and hear the outdoor creatures...esp birds! (Sorry Tabbies!)
This is not really a memory, but a regret! That meowmy did not know about Catster until I was a grown up kitty!
Oh well, better later than nevfur!
Now who to tag?
Since the only kittens I know are already tagged, I shall let whomever reads this, feel the tag touch their furs and paws to tell us all about their own memoirs!

[ Leave A Comment | 8 people already have ] OMC! Its been ages since meowmy let me come here to purr and mew to my pals!
Well, not a whole lot has been happening...so I suppose that is better than being neglectfur when things are furry exciting or bad...
Meowmy placed some boxes on the floor, and they have holes in them so I can jump in/out from different angles.
The other night, meowmy was hunting kitties in River's game, and she heard this strange noise and some of my chirps, too...so she looked and saw that I had a furry toy and I was throwing it into the box, jumping in after it and pouncing on it, then I would go around and around like a mad kitty in that box, and suddenly I would jump out, before starting all over again., MOL! I am a one kitty circus act! Who needs U tube or TV when I can provide the best entertainment evfur!
I still love to interrupt meowmy from her confuser work, I paw at her leg or use her shoe as a scratching post, then I jump on her lap, and bump up against her arm...best done to the one holding a mug of a hot beverage, MOL!
After a bit, if meowmy allows me to stay...what?...then I curl up, purr loudly and after some good kneads, I go to sleep...at which time I always seem to find myself back in a nest because as meowmy puts it, 'you mostly pick not good timing to be on my lap'...sigh!
Well, what evfur! I do love meowmy, MOL, I have her so well trained...she puts food in the dish, she cleans out the boxes, she gives me good nip, she finds fun boxes and toys, and she loves me, too!
Happy Mother's Day!
I will have to be offline for a few days to let meowmy go on a mini vacation..here is a link to WBS's diary to fill you in on the details:

Pipo & I are back, but sorry, the kimi site got changed while we were gone, and now it is so annoying to even try to get it to work, even with this slow confuser, it is crashing almost evfurry time meowmy tries to get a pic made...she took over an hour just to get one made today...sigh...
Oh well, being able to play here is the most important part anyways...purrs to all my furends!

[ Leave A Comment | 15 people already have ] Its a happy day here! Meowmy has been home all morning...though she will be off to work shortly...but then soon after that pawppy will be home from his job...the sun is out, and I am a DDP!
Meowmy is still on cloud 9 regarding her health reports, and of course so are Pipo & I, due to winning River & Simone's game.
But wouldn't yo know it, a bit ago, meowmy wanted to start writing this and the internet decided to crash, for about an hour it was gone. Sheesh HISS! What bad timing!
Hope it stays up, now!
Thanks for the pics, prezzies, P-mails and comments!
DDP's are so much fun!
Catster is so much fun!
All my kitty furends are the best of all!

[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ] The other day,Meowmy's sister came to visit...I of course made a furry fast dive into my safe hidey hole...because that lady mostly brings a black furry thing along with her..he makes noises similar to my dog-guy, but since he is not MY dog-guy, I do not wish to wash his ears, let alone be sniffed by that black-furred one...well he apparently got left at his own den on a stay-cat-ion...so that was fine with me!
Well, I did come out of hiding after a good long while, when I figured it was safe. Then said company put a sleeping bag on the floor...that is like a cat magnet! MOL!
Company was not impressed...
Then I saw that meowmy had put a nice cloth tablecloth in the dining room, where there mostly is a vinyl one...so of course I jumped up there and promptly rolled all over it, to add my own flavors to it...company was disgusted! And she said...Now I know why I have canines and not felines...sheesh...the nerve! (MOL)
Company said that no I had not tried to crawl under the covers with her...like I did when Pawppy had to sleep downstairs when he was sick...so well, at least I was not in her bad books!
Until...well I knew it was bad to get too furendly with a stranger, even though meowmy said company was her sister..but when she was getting ready to go back to her own den...(YEAH!)...I gave her a headbonk...and then...she tried to pick me up! OMC! I bit her, yes-siree, I bit her! No stranger is evfur allowed to pick me up...
And then I went back to my hidey hole...
Purrs and some bites, if you try that picking me up stuff!

[ Leave A Comment | 15 people already have ] Maybe I need to be jealous...not really envious, but maybe jealous, MOL!
Pipo got to represent Catster for Canada Day on the Catster FB page...and our dog-guy brofur, MJF has been on Dogster FB a few days ago, and today, he too got to woof for Canada Day! And little me? Nope!
But while purr-haps I feel jealous, I really don't mind...that much...cause I am the shyest one of the bunch!!
I hope you all had a great Canada Day if you are Canadian...we are by default, because meowmy is a Canadian. We flew the beautiful Canadian Maple Leaf flag all day!
And soon it will be the Fourth of July...more fun times ahead!
July 11th 2012 7:56 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 16 people already have ] I am good looking, that is what that lady known as the V - E - T called me today...
Meowmy scooped me up, and put me in that thing she calls a carrier...sheesh, any other time she just carries me in her arms, why I needed a cagey thing is beyond me! Then she took me into her van and I heard a noise like a wee honk. it was her opening the locks...and then we swayed and turned some corners and swayed some more, up hills and down hills, through one woodsy area and through some farm areas..then she stopped the van in a sun puddle, but she wasn't letting me bask there, no siree...she picked up that carrier and went through a couple of doors, and then I smelled a familiar not too pleasant scent, of animals, peeps and OMC the V- E- T!
No one listened to my mews to get out of there. They came and looked at little me in the carrier and said...'Awww!'
Then they even pulled me out of the carrier when I just wanted to hide in it.
After that impolite behavior, there were strange hands who poked and prodded, and a cold thing on my chest, too...and they tried to open my mouth, but unless they were going to let me taste them with a good kitty bite, I wasn't going to let them look...but whatever, they finally did get to see in there, too..sigh...then I got two pokes, OUCH! What did I do to deserve that??
Then I was allowed to go back into that hidey place known as a carrier.
I also had to sit still on this little platform which informed us that I weigh exactly the same as the last time.
All the while that lady was looking into my face windows, and saying how good looking I was, and handsome, too...
That V - E - T lady said evfurrything was good, even my teeth, and I didn't need to come back anytime soon..Hooray!
Who would want to go back there where all they do is do things I didn't ask for...
July 17th 2012 5:06 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ] Meowmy was at work last night...and when she came in the door all was quiet, well except fur dog-guy who barks his greetings furry loudly.
Usually I come sauntering up to chirp and mew at her, to ask her where she has been and how she is doing, you know - the usual polite things that you mew...
Well I did not!
No way was I leaving this comfy lined carrier I was in...a far cry from that carrier I was in to go to the (shhh)v-e-t...
So meowmy walked past her kitchen island where she had parked the half full laundry basket, and I lifted up my sleepy head and asked her MIAOW??
She just giggled and said I was a true op-purr-tuna-nistical kitty!
And meowmy hoped that pawppy would not start to sneeze if his face got full of kitty furs when he pulled his undershirt over his head...and it also solves the somewhat of a mystery of why that section of her neatly folded laundry often looks all stirred up...yup, befur I lie in that carrier, I have to dig myself a nice nest!

[ Leave A Comment | 8 people already have ] July 25, 1987...
Meowmy & Pawppy will always and furevfur remember that day! The day of their wedding!
Today they catabrated, well, no, they celebrated twenty-five years of being married! Wow! I can't even imagine how long that really is, more than 3 times longer than I have been upon the earth, MOL!
Mewomy got out a basket that she had used on her wedding day, and it still looks purrty good! And so were the ribbons - I sampled them! MOL! That must be why its normally inaccessible to us kitties...sigh, meowmy takes away all of our fun!
Anyways, I got to sit in it fur a while, and its just the right size and shape fur a kitty to take a nap in...go figure!
I was also brave and let dog-guy come and be close to me, so you can see that in those new pics! Pipo was not about to get close...
I saw Meowmy & Pawppy giving each other hugs and kisses...well, on your Silver Anniversary, what else would you expect!?!
Happy Anniversary, Meowmy & Pawppy!
August 7th 2012 10:10 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 10 people already have ] This morning I was a thief, MOL! I stole a leftover chew bone that belongs to dog-guy...and decided it was just the right size and shape to be a kitty toy! It had some doggy scents on it, so somehow the more I batted and pounced on it, the more I thought the poor dog-guy was going to get a sore bone in his body...sort of like voo-doo! MOL!
I picked it up in my mouth, walked about with it, dropped it, bashed it across the floor with a good smacky paw and chased it to start the game all over again! What fun!
Dog-guy was tired from his own doings so he didn't pay me no attention...but now meowmy is calling me a bone thief!
And she is giggling! Why, meowmy, I have to play with something...all my toys and mousies are in a bin in the front room and this was laying right in front of me..begging to be pawlayed with...
August 21st 2012 9:18 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] Pipo wrote a bit about what is going on in our den, meowmy is way busy with unfurbro getting ready to move into an apartment, the whole furmily minus us is going to a Tiger's game tomorrow, work is shortstaffed,and October will be even busier, she said, well, we will be here but in a limited fashion. Maybe there will be a bit of time to make a few kimis fur furs, but if not, we hope you will be patient until later when another oc-cat-sion will come your way needing a piccie...
Well, right now, I am going to relate some kitty things about myself...the secrets of Minko...as commissioned by the latest tagging game:
"Who are you really?"
I got a few already, so I thought I had better get to it!
1) Tell me your funny Christmas story.
I like to chew on the branches of our little table-top trees, and I work at it until the whole thing falls over, that is so fun, then too, its fun to watch meowmy get all bent out of shape over these so called disasters...MOL!
When there are any kinds of baubles, breakable or not, those have to be removed and taken to secret hiding places, not to be found until spring cleaning purrhaps...
2) Where's your favorite hiding place when playing hide and go seek?
Inbetween two couches that are back to back to each other like room dividers, there is a kind of tunnel in there. I used to be able to get behind the piano...but now that I am no longer a kitten, well, its too tight in there! I like to lay in wait, and then any purrson or fur who walks by will get a paw from seemingly out of nowhere, of course I like to do that pawing from other spots as well...like from under the dining room table, I lay on a chair and peer out from under the table cloth, and then I can stick out my paw at just the right time! I like a good deep box as well, then when Pipo saunters by, I jump out and spook him! MOL!
3) What did you dream of being as a young kit?
A great big kitty that can roar! I may be a Meezer kitty, but I have this pitious teeny mewling sound that I make...it makes meowmy giggle, and so I wish I could ROAR! Like a Tiger, the peeps are going to a Tiger's gam e tomorrow, If I went maybe I could learn how to roar, but meomy said I wasn't allowed:(
4) What's your favorite hobby? Anything goes.
Chewing the USB cords, the earbud cords, and if I can, the napkins that may have been left on the table by mistake, I lick them until there is a hole in them, MOL! Oh, and I love to bite cardboard boxes, even ripping them with my teeth. Meowmy says it is a novel way to get my teeth cleaned, MOL!
And sun puddles, of course!
5) Whats your one "bad habit" that you love and your Mom hates?
Getting up on the kitchen counter when no one is around to see if there is anything to snitch or play with...almost nevur!
But meowmy knows I went there, because she finds bits of kitty litter that stuck to my paws until I was up there, it is how I get busted from my secret times on the table cloth, too...
And I like to rattle the door knob to the bedroom hallway after the peeps are all up there, and I miaow my displeasure too, at being left to fend fur myself fur the whole night long...sigh...
6) If you could go anywhere in the world where would you go?
Home, Home, and the laps that live there, esp if they are in a sunpuddle...well, maybe the grassy yard, to eat some of that...
7) What is your guilty pleasure? Food, skirts and suits or cars? What?
Being kitty number one, the alpha kitty, I like to boss Pipo artound! He almost always gives in to my whims with no fight. His spot must be good, so I want it!
Next is a nice soft lap, to jump in and knead on...no matter what part of the anatomy I might have landed on, I need to dig in there, and then when all is ready, I start kneading and kneading and kneading...ahhh!
And licking the furs of dog-guy's ears! Now that is gourmet, MOL!
And catnip...OMC! Catnip! I even stole a catnip teabag that mneowmy was going to use, MOL!
8) What is your favorite make believe monster? And yes girls, unicorns and fairies are included. Post a pic of this mysterious beast.
I don't think there is one, unless there is one that can jump on walls...wait, spider-cat, I runright up the walls here after the laser light! If I was a spider-cat, then I could go higher!
9) What is the one dreaded thing you have to do at home? Babysitting, taking baths, entertaining guests....what is your dread?
Yes, strangers...I do not want them to see me at all, and why did meowmy think she could take me out of my hidey hole to show me off? HISS!
Getting my teeth brushed, what does that do but make me feel so silly...
And that way too noisy vacuum cleaner that steals all the furs I worked so hard to get on evfurrything...
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 think likely that Zach would have to put up with me...MOL!
So now all of Casterland will know that I am not a goody two shoes,m or even a goody four paws, MOL!!
I am not going to tag any specific furs, if you want to play, feel free to do so!
Thanks to my taggers!
August 30th 2012 9:06 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ] Yup! I was a purrfect helper today...I was watching the unfurbro, meowmy and pawppy...they were slugging all these boxes evfurrywhere, the house was full of them. Then meowmy & unfurbro took some of those boxes and emptied them, they were trying to reorganize them I heard them say...so about the same time that meowmy was ready to fill up a box again, she couldn't, cause I had already done it fur her...I was in the box, MOL!
So she shooed me out of that one and when she wasn't looking, I hopped into the closest empty one...wheeeee, Moving times are fun, well at least fur a helpfur kitty like me!
Later on, when meowmy was relaxing, she heard a funny swishing sound...and when she tried to determine what was going wrong in our old house this time, she saw that I was in the laundry basket and trying to rearrange the folded things in there...there were some not yet folded sheets on the side of the basket, I crawled under those and was trying to make a nest in them, but they fell down, so that was the source of the noise..and wow, I helped meowmy some more, cause she had to get up and fold those sheets befur I did it again, and now , temporarily at least, the laundry is all neat in its basket...Hmmm...what can I do now???
Ahhh! All this hard helping work, I have now found the purrfect pawlace to nap...pawppy's soft underwear! Zzzzzz...

[ Leave A Comment | 9 people already have ] Pawppy brought in a chair to use later when he will need a different kind of chair as he recovers from a hip replacement.
Anyways, it is an upholstered chair with armrests, it will replace a dining room chair fur a while, so he told me...
This chair has no kitty odors on it, and I only could smell pawppy on it. There was only pristine upholstery on it...well not fur long! I love to make things feel lived in, and need to add my own touch to it...that means putting lots of kitty furries all over it!
I jumped up on it, and rolled all over it, I chirped at it..and did bunny kicks on it, too. Around and around! OMC! It was so much fun, I should have enjoyed this type of pleasurable activity a long time ago! Oh well, better late than nevfur! MOL!
Then I proceeded to take ownership of this chair by grabbing ahold of it with my paws and then giving a lot of love bites. OMC! I have no idea why pawppy and meowmy were removing me from that neato toy!
Meowmy thinks I am just a regular nutty or maybe insane kitty! A long time ago, I did the same thing only with more intensiveness to a recliner-rocker that meowmy got from grand-meowmy. I could smell grandmeowmy and her hair spray...so I had to help make it ours...um I mean mine!
Pipo & I got a new kitty bed from River after winning his contest...thanks so much River, we love it!
Well, there is catnip in there, so I have done a fair amount of biting, bunny-kicking and scratching in that bed. It is well covered in kitty furs, too. Pipo is dull, and just goes and curls up on it...he is so laid back...I am the active one, and therefur the funner one, MOL! Well we are each different in our own ways...Pipo keeps dog guy in line by attacking him if necessary so I suppose I should not diss-hiss him about not going so crazy about the nip as I do...MOL!
I guess that we each are attack kitties in our own way...watch out if you come in our den, esp if you bring in upholstered furniture!
October 25th 2012 9:49 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 10 people already have ] OMC!!
We, that is the peeps and the dog-guy can only use the front door fur a while, because of all the concrete work going on outside our den...there are new back steps poured, but they lead to nowhere, MOL, because the sidewalk isn't there fur now...
Well, meowmy opened the door and the doggy door in it, and dog-guy ran right through it...and lo and behold the neighbor's kitty was sunning himself on the front porch, looking fur all like it was *his* porch...all in the blink of an eye, befur meowmy could stop the dog-guy...We think that cat must have had a heart attack!
A purrty grey tuxedo looking kitty, with a completely pink schnooter! MOL!
Somehow we do not know that kitty's name, it could be interloper or trespasser. He lives with a large furmily of children and a big oaf of a dog, too, so after the initial scare he held his ground...but dog-guy was bouncing all around him like a silly puppy...and he is 10 years old!
Sheesh...Eventually kitty ran off and climbed back over the fence to his own yard...and we nevfur knew he had even been there...dog-guy had fun, though...he even chased it into our woodsy area, and it was from there that it went home...(Probably a good thing we didn't know he was here, or we would have gone into frazzle mode.)
And then dog-guy came back inside and woofed at us...We think he thought he could chase us like that, too...UM...NO WAY!!
We have other interlopers/invaders here too...stink bugs by the dozens...UGH!! The Indian Summer we are having has woken them up...
Any furs want any stink bugs???

[ Leave A Comment | 11 people already have ] The other day, I was rolling around on the organ bench cover, leaving lots of my purrty furs on it...and besides that I know I look handsome there, too, because the color matches my eyes, MOL!
Anyways, there I was rolling around with complete abandon, when all of a sudden I found myself on the carpet instead...and somewhere I could hear meowmy giggling...so I just stalked off, befur that silly dog-guy could pounce on me in my state of clumsiness...and afterall, I truly meant to do that, I did NOT fall off that bench, so there!

[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ] OMC!!
We had some exciting happenings here yesterday and this morning...meowmy has her birthday, today...(Happy Birthday to you, Meowmy!), and her sister came to visit...dog-guy was disappointed that she came without her own little black doggy...but needless to say were were quite pleased about that! MOL!
Dog guy had to get all silly with me, but since Pipo got involved, I have graciously allowed him to tell that tail to you all...in his diary.
I hid fur quite a while, but when those 2 ladies sat down to watch TV, I decided to check them out from a closer distance...then I jumped on the bed to get a close up view of meowmy's sister, my auntie...well she smelled like dog! MOL!
I thought I was going to get a chance to burrow in bed with her, but Pipo & I got locked up in the spare room/office...sigh...so mean was meowmy, MOL!
Meowmy took some medicine for the cold she has...an unwelcome birthday visitor/gift...then when she had been asleep for a while, I heard her yelling...
She said I had been going up the stairs and getting into her bedroom over and over, through the closed door...(And I must have also gone through the closed office door...), and trying to get into her bed. She kept picking me up, and putting me back on the other side of the door...and as soon as it was shut, she would hear my miaows again, from her side of the door. Finally she was so frustrated she yelled loudly, NO, and was raising her arm to throw me down the stairs, when she realized she had been dreaming...a side effect of that cold medicine. OMC! Poor meowmy had no idea she had a violent streak in her either...MOL! Good thing it was a furry nasty, naughty dream...though I do wish to be able to get through those closed doors sometime, MOL!

[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] Happy Day befur Thanksgiving to all my furry pals, their furmilies, and my furmily, too, of course!
Meomy hasn't put any words down in my diary, fur me, fur quite a while, so I was furry surpawsed to note that I was one of today's DDP's! MOL!
Meowmy thought she was going to have an less time on Catster day...well, I made sure she has to spend some time here! So there!
She did furniture rearranging, cleaning, vacuuming and laundry,,,good thing, because now I am having fun with a bunch of rediscovered kitty toys, MOL!
Now I have even more to give thanks fur!
Soon the kitchen will be replete with yummy smells as the food preparations get started. OMC, I hope to make her know the desires of my heart when she goes in there...tidbits and tasty morsels of course! And she knows I am there, no excuse, because I always give these little chirps and 'mreeps' to let her know I NEED something NOW!! MOL!
Thanks in advance for all the giftees and messages that have been coming to my page! If meowmy can come back here later she will send out proper thanks to all who helped make my day extra spawsial!
And of course:
Purrs & Gobbles!
December 28th 2012 10:36 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ] Yup, that's right!
First its Christmas, then Pipo has his spawsial day...and tomorrow it will be mine! My birthday that is.
I will be eight, just like Pipo. we are almost twins by other kitty-moms. MOL!
Three days apart, and from different parts of the city. So we are more like fraternal twins if at all...like regular furblings, I guess.
I am glad that we have our birthdays close together, its fun! Except meowmy sometimes wishes we had our birthdays at another time of the year...hey, we didn't have much choice in that matter, MOL!
Well, at least having my birthday now, means that pawppy is home more than normal, unfurbros are here too, and all those spawsial decorations are just for my benefit, right??! MOL!
I am so curious to find out what I may be getting...Pipo got some cute little mousie toys with feathers and catnip...purrhaps I shall score similarly!
And soon after my birthday is New Year's Eve and New Year's Day!
OMC! Lots more fun things going on!
I do believe this is the best time for having a purrsday!
Yes I surely DO!

[ Leave A Comment | 8 people already have ] Goodness Catness!
Today is my birthday, and it has been FUN...well, until dog-guy decided to bust it, MOL! He has no manners sometimes, or if he does, I seem to make him forget them!
I got some yummy catnip early in the day followed by a thick felt mousie, and a smaller one with leather ears and a sisal tail...that little one is the bomb, I have already hidden it twice...I had to make meowmy hunt it for me, MOL! That ensued in the rediscovery of some other lost ones...and I have been playing like a wild kitty, (With that refound one, mind you, it has been my fave, even though it is now tailess and almost bereft of all its furriness, MOL), I threw it up the stairs, bashed it down again and soon...all the while singsonging mewy purrsday to me...did the same thing all over again...and so on...that's when things got silly around here...dog guy tried to capture me at the top of the stairs on the landing, and that got Pipo into his hissy-smackypaw the dog mode...Pipo was actually riding on dog-guy's back for a short distance, OMC! I was just waiting for my chance to escape to the dog free zone, but the fracas on the floor was so intense, not to mention that meowmy was giggling herself...so much mirth at my expense! Sheesh! And on my birthday. Hummphfff!
Well...let me say that I have had a great birthday, I even got some kitchen yums in the form of turkey tidbits, and yogurt.
My gift box is overflowing, just before I asked my catretary to take down this di-cat-ion, we counted 24 prezzies! OMC! What Catster love is happening here! Big ♥ back at all of you and my heartfelt thank-mews, too.
Hopefurly I shall be able to get said catretary to send out thanks really soon!
(She says she is busy...hasn't even sent out Pipo's yet...sorry, she says, please furgive her...things are always hectic with unfur-bros here, holiday meals to make, snow to shovel, chores to do and work, she still has to leave to go to her job...mostly when things start to get fun around here, MOL!)
I wish all of you a furry Happy and Memorable New Year!!!
January 22nd 2013 6:42 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 8 people already have ] Baby, its cold out there! Meowmy says if you go out now you will freeze off your toes...and we would freeze our ears off, too. It was minus 10 degrees here this morning with a way colder wind chill, Not only were the roads treacherous but a lot of schools had to delay starting, because the buses wouldn't start, MOL! And snow has been falling and blowing around off & on here for 3 days, now...
Want some snow and deep freezer temps? Pipo & I will gladly send them to anyfur...its only zero right now at about 945pm...
Sunday, when meowmy was at work...carrying water cups, with lids... She was taking them to the residents' bathroom to dump them out, only they were almost dumped on the carpet, MOL! Meowmy caught her toe in a wire under a residents' bed, attached to a fall alarm. So she careened across the floor, and stumbled to the bathroom door...where she couldn't keep her balance any longer, and DOWN she went. Kaboom! Miraculously the lids stayed on the cups, and meowmy's knees were not hurt...just her pride was sorely wounded. Both residents had a good giggle at meowmy's expense, and so did the nurse out in the hall who witnessed this incident...well, meowmy got up and finished her work with a furry red face... the funny thing was the fall alarm did not register the fact that someone had fallen...because meowmy only tripped over the wire, not the mat...MOL!
Its a good thing there was no one there with a camera...
At least she didn't do a repeat fall on the ice perfurmance, that was exactly a year ago:( Still feels that wrist with heavier work chores...
Meowmy had to shovel out twice yesterday and once today, to keep up with all the snow(lake effect)...but it is easier work now that we have the concrete, rather than the old gravel and mud ruts.
She was glad to be off yesterday,today and tomorrow. The roads are awful and there have been lots of 'incidents'. The main highway was even closed completely for a while, more than once... today...well meowmy ventured out to get the groceries ...at least the cupboards were getting depleted of fresh items. The kitty treats and food bags are full, so we would have been fine, fur a few more days, MOL!
Today Prince, the neighbors big goat,was trying to get in our yard as he had gotten out of his pen, while his peeps were not home, sigh...poor dude, its amazing that he doesn't freeze to death, but apparently with shelter they can handle it, he sure has a shaggy coat.
He tried to get in meowmy's van when she went out to get groceries, and upon her return he was there again...then he tried to get in when meowmy opened the gate, at least its a 'sally port' (double gated), so she could shoo him out, but he did not want to go! MOL! He appawrently wanted to eat our grass at the fence line...the grass being greener on the other side, you know? MOL! Even though he knows we have a naughty dog-guy....and all the grass is covered in furry cold snow right now...Does anyone want a big goofy, bumbling goat? I do NOT! He tried to eat the contents of meowmy's purse and grocery bags, too...
And now about this table dancing...well meowmy & pawppy did like it, I thought. Sheesh! I want to give them a nice show of my talents, and some loving head bonks, too, the best time fur these activities of course is when they are both my captive audience at dinner time...MOL! Well, now meowmy has gotten out that dreaded squirt bottle to thwart my efforts. OMC! I scuttle away as fast as I can...and wait a bit befur trying again, only to be met with water instead of appawlse, HISS!
So I have to revise my thoughts...I guess they do NOT like it. Sigh...what's a kitty supposed to do?

[ Leave A Comment | 19 people already have ] Wow-wee! - Wow-oooh!
I, little Minko,
Am Cat Of The Day!
What shall I say?
What should I do?
I am filled with glee
That this humble ME
Was chosen to be,
An honored kitty, too!
I feel so crazy,
Had wanted just to be lazy,
Not today, it isn't going to be!
What should I do?
Why THANK YOU!
That is the first thing on my list,
For gifts, comments and p-mails;
My eyes are fled with a mist
Brimming tears of happiness,
What shall I say?
I love you all the way
From the bottom of my heart.
From where else could it start?
To the tips of my ears,
And the furs on my tail.
So I say Cheers!
And again: Thank you!
Now off I sail (!),
I have to go and play
And have some catnip,
And a catnap too,
Soon I will visit again with you,
On this MY day!
Purrs to all of you, HUGE ones, and may thanks in advance for all those purrsents on my page…and fur end requests...The pictures, too…Hmmm will those fleas let me post?
I had a huge catnip spree, and some good kitty naps in my soft nest by the furnace grate, that's my fave spot, and when I can't be found that's where I am likely to be...
Now I am going to pester meowmy fur some time with me, MOL!
Then she will have to do a load of catretarial work…MOL!
I am Cat Of The Day!

[ Leave A Comment | 8 people already have ] Yup, I surely am!
The demure and beautifur Minuette, also known as Minnie is once again my Valentine!
Her blue eyes match mine, as do some of the letters in her name, MOL!
She has a sleek profile, too, and when I see her, I cannot help but admire her...who could resist not wanting her fur a Valentine!?!
Anyfurs, Meowmy helped me make a portrait of her and I together...
So now all can see why I am smitten, MOL!
Well, I have to go and take a nap...who knows what I need to store up my catergy fur...
At least there are sun puddles to bask in, we had about 6 inches of snow overnght...but we sure are not grumbling too loudly, as we are not going to receive all that blizzard mess.
I hope evfurryone will stay safe and warm if they are in the midst of that snowmageddon.

[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ] OMC!! WOW!
If kitties could talk with other than mews and purrs, I would be speechless!
My gift box is so big its taken over my page, sort of, MOL!
Thanks to all my furry pals who sent me Candy Boxes, which they made sure had tuna and catnip flavored Carob kitty treats in them...and fur all the the other wonderfur purrsents that now also grace my page!
All because it was a Day of Love...and my Gotcha Day as well! OMC! A Double Doozie! MOL!
How shall I thank thee all??
..."Meowmy can you do that fur me...my paws have no thumbs?"
Well, she says she would love to, but...since there are at least 47 of them, she would have to take time off work...she says why don't I just mew to you here...so I will:
"Thanks so furry much evfurryone!
THANK MEW ALL!"
I hope you all had a fun time with the giving and receiving of those candy boxes!
I also had some fun with my date, the lovely Minnie, my Valentine, my sweet little Minnie!
We exchanged purrsents, and loving words, too...I whispered and purred sweet nothings to her, MOL!!
And it was my Gotcha Day, too...8 years ago! Where does the time go?!
In case there are pals who may not know this tail too well, here is a rehash of an earlier diary about when I was gotted:
This is my Gotcha Day...and Valentine's day...but, I was not a purrsent from pawppy, nor was Pipo...we just claimed our love onto meowmy that day...MOL! She actually paid $$ to bring us here, even though I was sort of rescued from that nasty ladies house, yuck! It was so dirty and stinky there...I was all wet, too...that lady had no sense about kitties at all...and meowmy said she would call the authorities if she tried to advertise any more kitties...
She told my older unfurbro to go and get the big towel in the van, so that she could dry me off, and I mewed so piteously that she just took me right out of that house as quick as she could and into the warm van...and then to my new den...where it was clean, dry, the food was easy to get, and my nest was soft and warm. And there was this other kitten there, too..who hissed at me! The nerve! MOL! Pipo is that way, he likes to vent his feelings...
And there was this dog-guy, too...but that is a whole 'nother story!
When the vet saw me, he was appalled, too. He told meowmy that he thought I was going to be a kitty loaded with sicknesses and other bad things...but no way was I going to let that happen and I proved him wrong! I am just a wee bit small...but only in size!
So now you all know my kitty-story of how I was gotted!
Bye...off to Minnie's...

[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] My main pic asks if I am really Irish...purrhaps I am, purrhaps I am not...but I have heard it said that on March 17th, evfurryone IS 100% Irish, MOL! So...I guess I am,though only my furdresser knows fur sure, tee-hee!
Due to circumstances at our den, meowmy didn't make new St Patricks pics...not that I am complaining, mind you, MOL!
So...recycling some older ones. We hope you don't mind too much.
Recycling is good though, right??
I have also decided to become furry picky about my victuals. Turning my snoot up at almost all. Even most Fancy Feast, though I do seem to enjoy the beefy ones, or the liver ones.
I really do not need to shrink, and not eating is even worse, so meowmy keeps trying to find what I like...or horror of horrors, a trip to that dreaded (vet) pawlace. Today I ate 1.5 cans already, so there seems to be nothing wrong with my appetite. What bugs her, though is the food I gobble up today, is the food I try to cover up the next, MOL!
Meowmy just shrugs and tries another one. Whatevfur...
March 26th 2013 9:28 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 8 people already have ] Around here, it is mostly dog-guy who likes to do what is politely known as scooting...so when meowmy heard a strange sound after I came out of the litter box, she thought Dog-guy was over there...not scooting, but stealing croquettes...
It was I!
And she saw a nice trail of...um...something stinky...and dog-guy was there, but he was sniffing the floor in bewilderment, because how was he supposed to steal that kind of offering??
And then meowmy realized that I had had a caboose trying to follow me out of said box...and I didn't like it at all, so I left it on the floor. So there!
But I couldn't even try to blame it on Dog-guy, because meowmy saw me finishing my scootie-patooting...sigh...
Can't blame it on chocolate eggs either, because Easter Bunny hasn't visited here just yet!
So I shall have to admit it...I did a scootie-patootie!

[ Leave A Comment | 10 people already have ] Both Xena and Charlie have tagged me, so here goes:
I am supposed to relate 5 things that I like about Spring:
1) Bugs and bugs and more bugs. Yeah, Bugs! Did I say bugs?? MOL!
2) Birdies, big and small, chirpy and honky or even those gobblers,
we have them all!
3) Flowers! So purrty and they smell nice too!
4) Catnip! Meowmy has some small patches of it growing wild in the backwoods of our yard...and she brings it in fur us if she has been working out there.
5) Blue skies, white clouds and raindrops on the windowpanes...all beautiful in their own way...when the sky is furry blue and the wind pushes the white clouds to scud across the sky, we can watch them from our picture window...and my furbling will chatter at them, MOL!
We can try to capture the raindrops and their squiggly trails, too...
Spring is FUN!
Now the hardest part is tagging other furs...but since it s late and meowmy is oh so tired...we will let you tag yourself...its the honor system...if you are 'untagged' and read this then you are offurcially tagged by Moi! MOL!
April 13th 2013 10:29 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ] That is correct...well Pipo was here and that doggy dude...but the peeps were gone most of the day. Meowmy was off from her work...so her and pawppy went hunting, but not fur meeses. They went to find some new lawn fur-nip-ture for our new patio...but why today when I am a DDP, and not only that it is cold, windy and snow flurries abounded all day long. More like winter than spring.
Well, at least when they got home there were two laps to enjoy, and my food dish got full of some yummy noms!
Well, I shall say my brief thanks to all here, and meowmy will try to get real ones out fur me later on...Thank-Mews to all!
May 28th 2013 10:25 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 14 people already have ] Hey! Meowmy just came by me and scooped me up from my place and dumped me into the carrier. At midnight, nearly. Sheesh, there are no vets open now are there?
Then she left me in that carrier on the floor, and Dog-Guy was sniffing around it and I couldn't even do anything about it.
Then I got frantic to get out because I heard loud thunder and the TV was blaring about some tornado warning, and the lightening was flashing and the rain was coming down like Niagara Falls. I just wanted to hide, but I had been unceremoniously dumped into this carrier, no explanation, no warning, and I was mad, too...such indignity...
There were sirens too, though they were not nearly as loud as all that thunder.
Meowmy said she needed to have me ready to pick up to go into that furbidden spot - the cellar - if necessary. That would have been the ultimate insult, in this carrier, into the dungeon...oh, sorry meowmy, I meant the cellar, MOL!
Thankfully no one went down there, God put His protection around us, and that storm did not come here, though it was awfully close.
I hope evfurryone else is safe.
And those kitties we know at the R.B. said they are having a pawrty tonight...OMC, they really were living it up!
I gotta go and groom my ruffled furs, now.....

[ Leave A Comment | 6 people already have ] Wheeeee!
Today I see,
I'm a DDP!!
I shall have a lot of fun,
Lay in puddles of sun;
With my mousies I will play,
It's a purrfect day!
Thanks so much fur the p-mails, comments and gifts!
Tuesday,meowmy was bustling around here like a mad lady...and she washed the floor so we couldn't walk on it to get to our food dishes fur a while...then she made me hide, because she got out that loud monster with that long snakey hose...that can pry into all kinds of teeny spaces...then she used the duster, but wouldn't let me try to catch the fluffy end of it, much less any fluttering lost dust bunnies...and then she sat down...phew!
Well not so fast she said...and she was right...cause soon my dog-guy went nutzo...and that lady who comes to visit us now and then was here...so off to my hidey hole...and good thing, because along with her was this black furry thing on 4 legs...he barked sort of like my dog-guy, but in looks...no way!
So it was hours befur I was brave enough to come out of hiding to check this all out, because by then guest-pup was snoozing to recharge his batteries I presume...since he is the same age as my dog-guy (11), it was safe to sniff him and lay down some ground rules, MOL!
Then I saw that Pipo had betrayed me and was on auntie's lap! What! OMC! He nevfur did that befur! And I only evfur did it just befur she went back to her own den...to make sure she might want to come back...cause she sleeps in the livingroom...and that is purrfect fur sleepy times! MOL! I am not telling if I actually did, and meowmy furgot to ask...MOL!
Well, since it was great weather, they were mostly outdoors, so I didn't have too much to worry about...and we have not had storms either...just some rainy days.
Well after all this chatting I am ready fur another cat-nap in a sun puddle!
June 15th 2013 10:55 am
[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ] Yup, I was a bad-o...
I woofed my cookies in a big puddle on the carpet...then later I did another one from off of the cat window seat...into the windowsill and more on the carpet, too...YUCK!
That was a couple of days ago...but no more since...maybe I ate a bug that wanted to come out, but I'm not telling...
On the 13th it was pawppy's birthday. He got a couple of lawn ornaments, they were owls - Hoot!
Well they were standing on the table, and I was up there putting some of my furs on said table...suddenly without warning, I reached out and pushed one of the owls DOWN! Crash! OMC, meowmy was not happy, because it broke:( So she rescued what she could and will try to glue it back together...and she put the other one out of my reach all together. Sheesh, I was only trying to catch me a bird or two...
Meowmy said Minko you are naughty...then she picked me up, snuggled me and put me back on the floor...
I think she furgave me, because really it was her fault fur leaving birds where a kitty or two could catch them...

[ Leave A Comment ] They are popping and bnging all over Catster and my page, too!
Because they are Free!!!
And America is free!
Here is an interesting thought...that many furs might want to make happen...
The slogan is:
'Let Freedom Ring!'
So...why then don't we all just ring lots of bells and jingly things...instead of all those loud fireworks. So many furs are scared of all that loud banging and booming. Then maybe this holiday wouldn't be called the unsafest for furs anymore...just saying! MOL!
Mewmy says how can you have a birthday and not have loud noises to catabrate?
Imaging the furs who live on the border between USA and Canada...they have to listen to that noise twice in less than a week!
Well, meowmy is a Canadian, but we just put out our Canadian flag on that day, (July First), and leave the noise for today. Thanks meowmy. Good thing we can't hear the great white north noises from here!
Have a great and safe holiday!

[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Yes I was just doing some peeking out into my Catster page...and I saw I am a DDP.
Of course this has to happen when meowmy is on vacation...or rather she is on a stacation, because she had company...
Well, thanks Catster, its a great excuse to come and peek about, MOL!
Thanks to all who wrote to me,and sent rosettes, and comments. I shall try to answer them soon!
Meowmy when are we getting back here?
Off to purr in her ear to get her to put up some pictures into my biofields...that is easier than posting them on my page...and I do say that meowmy on vacation is a wonderfur thing...
I was relaxed and comfortable...
When Catster said DDP...Undeniable:
Cause my inbox was full...
That is always so beautiful.
So my kitty heart is so grateful,
Catster love is unmeasurable!

[ Leave A Comment | 13 people already have ] Meowmy says I am a Kittycat Burglar!
Well, what nerve!
She opened a drawer in the kitchen island and furgot to close it...so the rest is all her fault. So there.
She went about her doings, until she heard a strange rustling sound.
When she infurstigated, she saw I had something. She thought I had grabbed something and jumped on the island to play kitty games with it.
Well, she looked again, and I had a mouse! That's right a mouse!
A brand new one still had the store tag on it, MOL! It was in the open drawer just asking to come out and play, so I did, MOL!
Meowmy says I burglarized her stash of kitty toys, but I say, I seized the moment and the op-purr-tuna-ty...so there!
Anyways, she took off the tag and let me continue my game..and OMC, I had a ton of fun...until it went under the dryer...sigh...so I begged meowmy to get it back fur me...and wow, she found 13 others that were hidden and just waiting fur retrieval!
Even Pipo got started in kitty games after that!
August 21st 2013 10:13 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 8 people already have ] Meowmy tricked me yesterday. She put clean towels in the carriers…which are always out, so I often nap in them…then she put some catnip in them, too…and since I find that irresistible I went in…but wait, NO WAY! I decided I was going to temporarily hate catnip, so I found a hidey hole instead. That's because I heard Pipo doing some angry caterwauling, he was trapped already, in the other carrier…catnip yes, but not in there, thanks so much.
So meowmy took note of where I went and brought out the catnip over there…and stupid, stupid me…I fell fur it and came out…and I was grabbed and stuck into that carrier. HISS.
Unfur was watching this and he giggled about how I made sure my claws grabbed the edges of the opening so that I was not going to fit through the hole…meowmy will have to just learn that while I may be the smaller of us meezer dudes, here, I am feisty!
But she won, I admit it…and off we went to that vet place.
Those peeps decided to steal blood, but I was stingy…and they had to give me two beautifur leggings as my reward!
Then they even stuck jabs into me…OMC, this time when I was told I was done, I couldn't get into my carrier fast enough! MOL!
September 22nd 2013 10:57 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 10 people already have ] The food bowls are no longer visible here, and I am starving. I told meowmy that in no uncertain terms when she got home from her work. I sat up on the dryer where I always get my own spacial foods, but she ignored me, Hiss!
Pipo is walking about mrouwling and pawing at meowmy too. Sheesh, What the catness is happening here, I do not understand it at all.
Well, meowmy took me aside, and gave me some food...OMC, she loves me, she does. Cause she told me only Pipo has to starve, MOL!
Well, she says she doesn't like starving him either, but that vet dude told her to do it tonight cause he has to get his pearls cleaned. Oh, No! I need to hide in case I have to go too...
Well, I don't?? Phew!
Please purr fur Pipo, I love him, no matter what I miaow about him sometimes, MOL...only don't tell him cause I want to stay the boss.
Well, meowmy thinks I may hiss at him later tomorrow when he gets back and smells unusual...she had that experience with other kitties who lived here befur I did. She may need to rub my nest towel all over him when he gets out of his carrier, so that he smells like me, MOL! She did that before and it did help:)
Well, I gotta hide in case she changes her mind and puts me in a carrier, too.
September 24th 2013 8:40 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ] Me bad...or so meowmy says.
Well I sure got all bent out of shape, let me mew to you about it all.
Furstly, I had to endure a starvation session. Sheesh. Then meowmy stole Pipo out of here, and didn't tell me where he went. She came home smelling of other furs whom she had petted, yikes! Intruders??
Then she abandoned me again and came back with a fureign creature, all stinky and funny acting.
Who wouldn't hiss at *that*? I thought she had brought home another fur, and OMC, I was miffed with meowmy and pawppy too, fur good measure. I hid and when they (the peeps) got close, I hissed & growled at them. How dare they:(
Then that other unknown cat walked past me...OMC: HISSSSSSS, smacky paw and growls galore. Dog guy came to check this out and I smashed his schnooter too...you know the one whom I wash the ears of, MOL! He was taken aback, I needed my space to digest all this strangeness. It didn't help that a couple of days before there was a stranger in here who took the washing machine apart to fix it, and the dryer too. My noms are on top of the dryer, so I had to endure a lockout of sorts then, too. It truly was time to let my furmily know I was not purrleased at all.
Meowmy tried to fool me by rubbing a so-called Pipo towel on me, and my nesting towel on top of that other unknown kitty...sheesh, I am too clever to let that fool me!
Meowmy was concerned if purrhaps I had gotten hurt somehow, because I didn't come to sit on her lap at all, last night. So she eventually found me in a hidey spot...and I growled & mrowled and hissed at her again. She tried to check me over and I gave her a warning nip...um, sorry meowmy...I just had to.
This morning I vacuumed up my noms, almost as if I hadn't eaten yesterday, due to my 'upsetness'.
Then I mewed at meowmy and bonked on her...phew, she thought, at least that shunning junk is over.
Meowmy got out a whole lot of catnip and I came running, stopping short when I saw 'him' there. Sheesh, I had to go and hiss at him yet again, the trespasser.
Then meowmy went out of the house to do errands,and when she came back, she noticed that I am letting the stranger kitty walk past me, but no hissing. Hooray she thought: progress!
So we tolerate each other, but not too close if you pawlease...
Maybe tomorrow, I might let that other dude get closer, but only if he smells better, MOL! He had loads of VET aroma all over himself...I HATE that pawlace...
I thought that Pipo was gone furevfur and replaced, but maybe just maybe this stranger will morph into the kitty I remember as my brofur.
December 22nd 2013 4:35 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 12 people already have ] Well I see its been like furevfur that I have been allowed to miaow any cat words here...
Our den is rather subdued today, on account of using the generator for our power, but...at least we didn't have to leave here, or the peeps go to a warming shelter, I don't think they allow kitties in there:(
Now its awfurly dark outside, no street lights and so on.
We are blessed to have light, warmth and noms.
Speaking of noms, when the peeps sat down to eat dinner, I was hovering about, looking for pets under the table and purrhaps a chance to jump on that yummy smelling table...to pretend to get a headbonk, and then steal a morsel, MOL!
Of course dog-guy lurks under the same table at mealtime to maybe snag a fallen tidbit...no; he nevfur gets anything from the table, except by accident. He does get his own chewy treat to keep busy and to furget to beg while the peeps eat...
Well, of course as I was mewing, I jumped up to get some bonks on to unfurbro, but he lifted me up and set me down on the floor...at the same time Pawppy stood up to get something...and when he sat down...YOWL...he sat on me, well almost, meowmy saw it in the nick of time! YIKES! When Pawppy stood up, I decided that was a good time to get on his chair, its warm and softer than the other dining room chairs...and I didn't think he was going to sit down right away after he got up...well, my floofs were ruffled, let me tell you, MROWL!
Dog-Guy even tried to get me when I popped out from behind Pawppy's derriere...and of course Pipo had to get in on it too...he doesn't think I can fend fur myself...whatevfur!
Well, off I stalked to see if there were any safer pawlaces...and I stand with my verdict that Pawppy tried to squash me, so there.
Later I did jump on Pawppy's lap for a good cuddle, MOL!

[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ] Today I turned NINE!
That should be fine,
Cause I shall dine,
On fish - pass the brine -
Drink nip-laced wine,
Out of a kitty-stein.
Play with some twine;
Get rubs on my spine,
On my soft pillows recline...
See? No need to whine-
Just cause my timeline
Points to NINE!
Happy Birthday to ME!
Thanks already fur all those fine birthday wishes and prezzies!
Meowmy has to work today...boo...but when she gets back I shall stand between her and the confuser so as to get good attentions while we read all the Catster doings.
February 15th 2014 7:20 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ] To quote Pipo, I have the same mindset on a lot of things...
Wow! I haven't mewed here in a long time...shame on the catretary...well no I guess I need to cut her some slack she was evfur so busy copying my pages, running about doing her chores and her work, and shoveling snow...an shoveling snow...and did I say shoveling snow!
The snow was higher than the windows at one point, though it has now compacted 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!
You just do not know how good you really DO have it until it is taken away... or threatened to be taken away...like a rug being pulled out from under your paws.
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 Pipo'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! Um...she said it was ME! Maybe that's why I like to be in the middle of things...
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 & Pipo 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, off I go to a soft warm nest to cat nap!
February 22nd 2014 9:05 am
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] The other day when the sun peered out briefly it warmed up my snack!
Well, there was a fly in the windowsill, and meow my hadn’t been around to clean yet…so said fly awake…buzzed and splat, it were MINE! I savored evfurry morsel!
Then a few hours later after I had some so called real noms, I put a big barfy on the carpet right beside pawppy’s chair…meow my said that fly must have kept on buzzing inside of me, MOL!
I like to sit on the desk when meow my is there being my typist. Well yesterday I was there relaxing, and she was jostling a bit to do her catretarial duties…so I said, ‘NO, I want to relax and you are bothering me’, so I chomped down on her wrist…she said ‘Ouch’ and I was evicted…
Well, today I paid her back….
Meowmy has a little music player beside her desk on the end table…and its computerized so it has a usb cord…I tried to snack on that worm…but all I got was a big ‘NO’ and a shooing away…now that cord is all covered up. Dang! Busted and thwarted at the same time.
Pawppy says now he knows who chewed *his* usb cord the other day…I fear my bank account is going to be raided…
Well, I am off to find a hidey hole to take a nap….

[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ] I don’t think meowmy appawsiates my purrs and paws furry much…at least not lately…
She had to move her confuser to a different pawlace, cause the chair she wanted to use didn’t fit under her desk. She needed the other chair because her back was bothering her and pawppy’s chair helps…anypaws, now her confuser is on the table. So…I jump up there and then its easy to get between the confuser and meowmy…so she can hardly see the screen or the keyboard, MOL! So she says.
She just doesn’t appawsiate me…see, I start to purr and knead and wiggle a bit, and I don’t like it when meowmy moves her hands and arms to do all that tapping and typing. And why does she get to play with a mouse but not me?
Well after a bit of time goes by, meowmy picks me up, bribes me with a kiss and puts me on the floor…sigh…I told you so!
Well, so then I decided to get to the back side of the confuser. Hey its cozy back there. And…she keeps her confuser on a thick rattan mat. Um…the other name for a rattan mat would be scratching pad, MOL!
She didn’t think so though…and you guessed it, on to the floor I went…after I thought she had forgotten about that, I went to the back of the confuser again…and did not scratch. But…I saw this wee gadget protruding from the back of the keyboard, not the USB cord mind you, this thing was loose and made of metal, so I decided to jiggle it and rattle it, to see if I could dislodge it, to begin a 'bat it around the floor game’. Wow, a neato 'not a cat toy' toy! MOL!
But Meowmy didn’t think so either…she said hey! And I got put to the floor again. She said she needs that toggle to her lock down (It is a computer lock, not unlike a bicycle lock…)…sheesh! So now all I have to do is figure out how to get rid of that thing so that when meowmy goes to her work, maybe I can get to use the confuser myself…yes, that is my goal! MOL!
Until Pipo reminded me that my paws may not be able to manipurrlate the keys furry well…sigh...
I wanted to use the confuser myself to say hooray and thank-mew to Catster fur still being here fur us to purr and pawlay in!
Happy Kitty I am...despite all the thwarted efforts, MOL!

[ Leave A Comment | 12 people already have ] A few evenings ago, meowmy heard me making a lot of noisy scuffles and running around.
What on earth was I into now?
Um, I was playing kitty tennis!
Which means I found one of the tennis balls rolling loose from the doggy toy box…and decided it was going to be my turn!
I rolled it over the floor, pounced on it, and smashed it under the couch. I retrieved it, and did it all over again!
Whee! Fun! Somehow I couldn’t get it to go up the stairs, which is what I do with mousie toys…then I throw them down and chase after them. So I left the ball at the bottom of the stairs, ran up and ran down again to pounce on it. Phew! I got so worn out I just left it and decided to go and pester meowmy as she was working on the confuser…which meant she picked me up and set me on the floor…sheesh…not even her lap!
So I went to the doggy nest and made that my nesting spot, MOL! Dog-guy had to go somewhere else when he wanted to sleep, teehee!

[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ] Today I am a DDP!
Haven't written or mewed too much lately either, MOL!
Well, I sure don't mind having a turn in those windows of the DDP lineup!
Thanks in advance for all the messages, prezzies and pictures!
Meowmy has to leave in a few minutes to go to her work, but soon pawppy will be back from his errands and then I shall take a nap on his lap! Meanwhile I am enjoying the fine sun puddles that have been bestowed upon us here ...after I finish my bath whilst sitting in my latest box...it has peek a boo holes in it, MOL!
And tomorrow is Easter!
Happy Easter to all of you!
Meowmy says there are bunnies in our yard of late, they got in when the snow was so high, and now they are under the wood pile, and dog-guy hasn't gotten at them yet...and hopefurly won't...
I don't know if they will help the Easter Bunny, MOL!
Next door there are chickens, they certainly can help with the needed eggies, MOL, MOL!
Purrs to all and Happy Easter!
"What a nice Easter picture from Tundra and her crew! Thank mew!"
"Another great pic from Jameson and the KCK Group! Thanks!"

[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ] Wow-wee!
And I haven't mewed anything to earn it, MOL!
Well, I have just mewed here at home furst because meowmy was at her job most of the day,and secondly because when I tried to follow pawppy upstairs, dog-guy chased me back down...the nerve...and then Pipo had to get in on the c=act and smacky pawed him, MOL!
Well, we have had some nicer weather of late, and were able to enjoy fresh air along with our sun puddles.
But today its all wet and rainy...well early in the day it was and lo and behold the sun came out when meowmy went to work. Hooray!
I have been enjoying a fine box specimen...it even has peep holes in it, and it also is great to bite...its already full of my teeth marks, OMC! Sharpen claws, sharpen teeth and polish them too!
Well, meowmy says she is oh so tired,and so I won't mew too much...
We can't post my pictures in my regular photobook, so I will make them into rollover links. Still some fleas around here...
Rory sent me this nice picture to honor my oc-cat-sion:
Picture from Rory and his gang of artists - Thanks!
Then I got another picture from Tabatha at the KCK group:

[ Leave A Comment | 8 people already have ] Unfur-the-Elder was here today, on account of that it is Mother’s Day.
Happy Mother’s Day to all Mothers, be they of fur kids, real kids or both!
Unfur-the-Younger wasn’t here, but he didn’t forget to send a nice card.
Pipo & I purred and headbonked meowmy.
Of course Dog-Guy had to do his act of wagging and woofing.
As I was saying, Unfur-the-Elder was here. He always brings some electronics when he comes.
When evfurryone was sitting down to eat dinner, Pipo decided to take a nap on the condo in a sun puddle.
He entertained the crowd by chattering at bumble bees and other buggies out there. And he chased his tail.
I was not anywhere to be seen, but of course I have some neat hidey holes to snooze away the time.
Afterwards, Unfur-the-Elder came out of the living room…and he was angry…and not a little upset.
He presented meowmy with a unique item, not normally seen, the charger to his spawsial confuser. Its a dedicated one and can’t be interchanged with others.
Um…it was chewed right thorough and there were multiple bite marks all over it.
As you may recall, last week Unfur-the-Elder had to get a new USB cord, because somefur had chewed it up. OMC!
Well, I Minko get the blame, caught red pawed, or rather red toothed as it were, because Pipo was a goody four paws and had been sleeping all through the mealtime…and dog-guy was under the table gnawing on his own chew stick…besides which he can’t get into the living room, there is a gate blocking the way.
I am in trouble now.
Unfur-the-Elder says that charger will cost him $55. How on earth can I, a wee innocent kitty with big blue eyes and nice long whiskers, earn $55 to pay it back?
All the while our unfurs had lived here, nobody much paid cords attention, except the skinny slinky ones from earbuds…now I am into the big stuff. Meowmy says I have tried to chew the power supply to her MAC, and pawppy says similar things…
I need to consult Travis The Cat, his peeps know about law and jurisdictions and stuff like that. I don’t wanna go to kitty gaol.
I gave my sweetest purrs to Unfur-the-Elder and some headbonks befur he left to go back to his own den….maybe that will get me off the hook?
And how did you spend your Mother’s Day my furry pals?? MOL!
May 13th 2014 9:58 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] OMC!
Pipo would be wishing he was a naughty kitty...well, maybe...
My naughty chewing habits have earned me a DDP honor, MOL!
Pipo just has to sit there and wonder what he need so do to be recognized fur being a goody four paws...poor brofur of mine...
Well, meowmy didn't have to be at her work, but she spent a lot of the day going on errands...doing chores, and other non-kitty stuff.
She went visiting a lot of other furry pages too, and now I have to get the leftover time...ahhh, that is the price I have to pay fur my chewing time, MOL!
Thanks so much fur the comments, prezzies, pictures, support and MOL's about this trouble I am in.
Tundra sent this nice picture to mark the event:
DDP Picture From Tundra & Gang - Thank Mew!
Tabatha from Kewlest Catster Kitties sent this picture:
DDP Picture From Tabatha @ Kewlest Catster Kitties - Thank Mew!
Pawppy says I keep eying the power supply to his Mac-book, its also an expensive dedicated one. He thinks he should get some peppered tape to cover the temptations...meowmy thinks we should just hide our cords better...duh...
I shall try to post my thank-mews really soon!
Off to spy out the land of 'cordster' here in my den...
June 17th 2014 8:52 am
[ Leave A Comment | 12 people already have ] Well, this time there is an excuse about why we didn't play in the diaries of our pals or even post our own...
Our interweb connection died. It was not working at all for several days, Bummer. So meowmy went to mobile WiFi 'hot spots' to keep in touch, but she couldn't really take the time to post much from those places. But she did enjoy the coffee in those places, MOL!
Not sure why it got scared and left us…
And wouldn’t you know it.
That is when things happen.
Pawppy had a birthday and we couldn’t mew about that.
Meowmy got hit by a resident at her job. She is fine:)
There is a bird nest in the eaves next door, phoebes; so we are having fun watching that.
Anyways, our connection to the outside world seems to be fine now, hope it stays on, and we hope we didn't miss too much either.
Pawppy had his Birthday and the peeps left us to our devices and they went to visit a railroad museum.
Historic Train Station, Durand Michigan
Historic Durand Railway Station, Durand Michigan
It was interesting to them but not so much to us, we would have been spooked from all those noisy clanging bells, horns and clackety clacks! They had a nice lunch in that town, too...then they came home, and after some time they left again...and met up with unfur the elder and they ate a nice dinner...in a concerted railway station! OMC!
(A Renovated Train Station)
Meowmy told the waitress in secret that it was pawppy's birthday and when dinner was done, he got a cake, complete with candle and the whole gang of employees singing a happy birthday to him! He was kind of embarrassed but that was one way meowmy didn't have to bake a cake, MOL!! Or have leftovers...shucks, we could have helped gobble up a cake!
Saturday, June 14th was Flag Day. Meowmy wore a flag pin to work...and it was lovely weather, so we flew our own flag at the den all day long.
Then on Sunday it was Father's Day. Meowmy had to work, so that was sort of a bummer, but she got to see lots of pawppy's; either visiting or being visited.
Well, all this chatter is fine, but now about Me, Minko...
Pipo is enjoying not being pestered lately, I am mostly in hiding mode. No eating, no playing...and only use the box if meowmy puts me on it. OMC:((
This all started on Thursday. Meowmy couldn't even tell any one of our pals about it, cause our interwebs was kaput. Such timing.
My pawrents thought I had hurt my paw by racing back inside the house after one of my furtive ventures outdoors. They thought that tincture of time would be the cure...but by the time it was Friday, they decided it was bad, so off to the vet I, Minko went...after being stuffed into a carrier, sheesh I thought that was rather undignified.
At the vet spot, I had to literally be pried from that carrier...MOL! I'll show them...
We wanted to post this about the same time the interwebs crashed here, but of course time has passed, and now there is more to report. So this is Minko's version of the first part...
I was hiding. A lot:(
And barely eating:(
Playing…nope not that either.
Then meowmy noticed that I was limping. Oh NO.
So she rudely stuffed me in a carrier and off to that vet place I went.
I have lost about 1/2 a pound. Too much, really.
Well the vet lady was unable to find any overt issue with my paw/leg (Left front), but she gave me some analgesic/anti-inflammatory pills to take fur a few days. She said she hoped tincture of time would take care of me. If not well, then further investigations would need to be done.
That first pill went down my gullet at about 1030 am, and now 12 hours later, I am acting a tad better:))
I have to take this medicine 3 more days. Purr that it helps me get better, and that I don’t need to go back to that scary vet place.
Meowmy was also wondering if it could be possible that I have Lyme disease, because of my vague symptoms. So if I do not stay better, she will ask the vet about getting me on the antibiotics needed to help rid a body of that scourge. Sheesh my pawppy’s Mother had that for many years and it was awful.
Hope all is well with all of my kitty pals.
I know that Pipo & I missed a lot of spawsial oc-cat-sions, but its good to be back now.
Now meowmy is back:
That bit above is what was going to be posted early on Friday when we couldn't...so now...
Minko seemed good for while after getting each dose of that medicine, but after a few hours it was back to hiding. and do not touch me. He was biting us if we did...
I had to force feed him and dribble water in his mouth to make sure he didn't have other issues starting. After each time I put him on the litter box, and he would go right away, not a problem there.:))
But the Lyme disease issue continues to be uppermost in my thoughts, given that the ticks are horribly prolific this year, and he keeps going outside. Kitties groom themselves, so he could have easily bitten off a tick if it was on him so that we wouldn't notice it. We did have one that needed removal on Dog-Guy.
So I called the vet back, and had a discussion with her, she wanted to do xrays...but I asked to get Minko on a course of antibiotics and see if that would help. She reluctantly agreed. Sheesh, I only want to do what my gut feelings are leading me to do.
Well, he is now on doxycycline for 10 days. Hoping for the best.
Now to solve the issue of him getting all those pests crawling on him...UGH.
(We never treated them for other than heartworms because they stay inside, an dog-guy gets treated so he doesn't have any... )
Pleas purr hard for my little Minko so that he will get better and feel more himself soon. He can be a rascal, but I hate seeing him suffer like this.
I will update when I can.
June 18th 2014 9:09 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ] Well, I am stable, but not 100% by any means. Sometimes I nibble at my food, sometimes meowmy has to put it into my mouth. I hate that , but since the food is usually yummy because its my normal wet food, I just accept it. Not sure why I do not consistently eat on my own...but I did just eat about a tablespoon of my food by myself. When meowmy put some more on my plate, I just stared at her, MOL!
I have done some urka-gurka's, but not much...meowmy says my tummy must be feeling yucky from the medicine I have to take.
After I get my pill, 2 times a day, meowmy has to give me water to make sure its down, and she always adds some baby meat from one of those wee jars. Thats pretty good, too...but if I decide not to eat, then meowmy puts it into my mouth...and hence I am a bit stinky...kitty food on my furs, eeuuwww! So I wash myself! Meowmy likes seeing me do that, I wasn't doing much grooming when I was furst not feeling good.
I go pee-pee in the box, and did a stinky-poo, too...MOL! Nothing amiss there!
But mostly meowmy is setting me in the box, she has not seen me get into it by myself. I just don't want to walk around...
I have been spending most of the time hiding, but this afternoon, meowmy put me in one of my kitty beds in the living room, and I stayed there.
This evening, I came out of there to go and beg pawppy fur some scritches and loves. I sat on his lap fur a while, too. Then I went into my 'regular' kitty nest closer to meowmy's confuser desk. All by myself!
So there you have it...not worse, but not a whole lot better either, I guess it will take time. At least as a kitty I have lots of that, MOL!
It sure was noisy here this afternoon and evening, lots of thunderstorms.
Pipo comes by to sniff me now and then, and we exchange a headbonk or two, but we have not romped or zoomed at all.
Dog-guy sniffs me too...sheesh, am I that stinky?
Well, meowmy has to go to work the next two days on second shift...she has made my medicine schedule fit around her work hours.
Pawppy is home in the evenings, so he can give me noms if I need any.
Thanks so much to all of you fur those rosettes, and prezzies on my page!
And many more thanks fur all the purrs and pawyers. I know they are helping.
All you furends are evfur so pawsome! ♥
June 20th 2014 9:05 am
[ Leave A Comment | 15 people already have ] Waaaaa!….sniff…sob…
I am sad…and maybe need to do some hissing, too!
Meowmy got a notice that I am a DDP, and with all the big nasty fleas here, I can’t see my self over in Diary Central..Right now I might have a better chance of seeing myself if I was in Union Station, cause that would cause a ruckus, MOL!
Well, thanks HQ fur picking me anyways!
Not much to report regarding me…status quo is how meowmy describes it. Still only eating if I am made to…about one can of wet food each day, whereas I should be having 2 or maybe 2 1/2. Usually I have kibbles and a can as snack food.
I am not hiding as much, and sometimes I come to meowmy or pawppy fur scritches.
I will wash my face after I get my medicine or food.
Well, all I can say is keep up the purrs and I thank you all from the bottom of my kitty heart for all the purrs, lawyers, prezzies decorating my page, comments and above all your love.

[ Leave A Comment ] Yesterday meowmy was so busy all the day long, she could hardly even be here with me in Catster to help me see what all was happening...sigh...Sheesh, she needs to quit her job and hire a maid fur all the chores so I can come here to play a lot more, MOL!!
I appawlogize fur missing things...but I will furgive meowmy too...cause she takes care to see that I get all the good nutrition I need...else I would be a skeleton...by doing the feeding help/assist, I have gained a wee bit:).
You see, I haven't been feeling too well of late, and I just will not eat by myself at all...so meowmy puts the food in my mouth...and I do eat it then. I do barf at times, too, mostly when my stomach is empty, go figure. The vet lady thought I may have pancreatitis, judging by my labs, so she gave me a prescription diet, but I won't eat that at all, and it even makes me do more pukies...YUCK! We can't afford to do the extensive tests she wanted to do, and so meowmy and her decided just to treat me as if it is indeed that nasty pancreatitis. I had shrunk down to barely 7 lbs, but now am a few ounces more:)
I wanted to let you know that I am now 10 years old, too! My Birthday was yesterday, so yes, that is why I am a bit miffed that I couldn't play here...but belatedly means an extension of the fun and attentions, right?? MOL!
I'm 10 years old now, so I can lay back and relax!
Minko ~ Dec 29, 2014
Minko ~ Dec 29, 2014 I'm pawyering fur a good future, fur me and my furmily and my pals, too.
Sunbeams on my birthday are welcome fur sure! I think the heavenlies are shining upon me...
I'm wondering about the future...
I got a tad frisky, too...
from all the sunbeams...
and from the attention...
and these props...
why...I couldn't resist a good bitey on them, MOL!
Now...what is this??
Something else good to chew on?!?
Oh My Catness...
As you can see, meowmy has been tinkering with my pictures. lately...she can add these white or black frames, blur the edges, lighten or darken them even change their colors, OMC! These pictures were all made on the same sunny morning, with her I-Pad! It doesn't have a flash in it, and close ups are purrty easy...the hardest thing is to hold it and use a free finger to push the shutter...though sometimes I am paw ready to help her, MOL!
That being said, it is by no means the end of her camera usage!! There are still things where that device is far superior:)
Now meowmy has to go shopping...fur some huge items...maybe Pipo & I will get the boxes...Christmas sure gave us some good ones...now she will be getting some bigger ones, the microwave gave up in a huge stinky electrical debacle and it was a wonder the house didn't get burned down...phew!
Then our fur sucking machine is way too long in the tooth, so a new one will be arriving soon...but, sheesh, will that mean we have to do more hiding? Or will all our fur deposits to soften the carpet be work fur nothing?
And this am the little counter height freezer decided to turn off furevfur...sheesh, the things that dwell in our den must think meowmy is a money bag and if'n she puts all that $$ in those items, well, will we get our noms?? And more toys and nip, too? Meowmy says each one of those items costs so and so many shifts extra of work...oh...good, meowmy that means you will be even busier and home less than befur...sigh...
I sure hope nothing else breaks or conks out around here!
And to all my Catster pals: Thanks so much fur the prezzies on my page, and the Pawmails, too! And Manytoes and furmily made this nice piccie fur me, too:
Thanks so much, Manytoes! I love it!
Purrs to all and to all a good night!
February 15th 2015 12:34 pm
[ Leave A Comment ] Yup, you read that right...I couldn't get here to pawlay at all yesterday...not cause of pesky fleas, but cause meowmy said my brofur dog-guy was at a dance in Bloggville. What the Cat is up with that, Sheesh:( Sometimes the slaves around here are useless to me...but I guess I am stuck with them so I will have to just grin and bear it. MOL!
But, I do see that lots of other furry pals were allowed to be busy here in Catsterland.
There are oh so many prezzies on my page...fur Valentine's Day and fur my Gotcha Day. Thanks evfur so furry much to all of you!
I ♥ you all!
I shall try at some point to send out purr-purr thank mews...
Also cause of the peeps not cooperating with me to come here, I missed out on the free gift that was being sent out:( Shucks. Well here is my own version fur ya all: (( ♥ )) See, hearts and hugs go out to my pals:))
I did get good noms, some fum pawlaying time and a lot of chin scritches. I made bread on pawppy too, MOL! Isn't that a a fun thing to do to the peeps you love, make lots of bread and biscuits just fur them! Meowmy said she could hear my purr engine from across the room!
While the peeps were at home most of the day, they had to be outside in bitter winds and cold to clear out the sidewalks and driveway from yet another dump of snow.
Then they left fur an early Valentine's Day dinner but they got back befur dark...the roads were quite icy and whiteouts were apt to occur, so they did not want to be out after dark. This morning it was about -10F here, Brrr! Unfurbro-the-elder said his pipes had frozen in his apartment, so he had to call maintenance to remedy the trouble...they had not reminded the tenants to open their faucets...sigh...at least the pipes had not burst in his den.
Well, I am still not eating more than a bite or a nibble or two at a time. So the hand feeding is still part of mine and meowmy's twice daily routine...a can each time...teeny spoonful by teeny spoonful. Meowmy says she could better spend that time doing other things, but hey, she is my slave and I need her, MOL! (When there is some $$ in the wallets here, they may get another vet's opurrnion and diagnoses, so I can eat better on my own...)
I have not lost any more weight and I can play and purr with the best of them. Howevfur I still do barfies, mostly on an empty stomach, isn't that strange? Makes meowmy think it is not pancreatitis cause that would make the upchucks happen right after a meal.
Well, Tundra my good pal and her helpfur furmily of artists made me a nice piccie memento fur my Gotcha Day:
Minko: 'Isn't this a lovely memento for my Gotcha Day from Tundra and her helpers! Thank mew furry much!'
Well, off to find a sunpuddle, there are lots to choose from today even though it is so furry cold outside, its warm and cozy in here!
December 29th 2015 8:07 pm
[ Leave A Comment ] Yuppers, I too had a birthday, so now I have 'caught up' with Pipo, MOL!
We are not twins, but we are only a few days apart...born in diffurent parts of our city...and then later we were gotted on the same day, so I guess we are sort of twins form diffurnet mothers, OMC!!
About a year ago, meowmy wasn't even sure I would still be here, I was so furry sick and fading away...I was diagnosed with IBD, and now I am on all kinds of meds and spawsial noms...so I have gained back some weight and I eat purr-purr-ly again...but...I only eat when meowmy feeds me with a spoon...shucks, I just do not have appetite, despite all the medicines. But meowmy loves me, I know; cause she does this three times a day. Sometimes I might eat one or two bites of my noms, sometimes I snatch a kibble from Pipo's bowl, but not nearly enough to sustain me...sigh...
I do not throw up nearly as much as before, I was doing that one or more times a day, now maybe only once a week or so. Sometimes when I do eat those kibbles, they just come right back up. YUCK!
Meowmy says she really doesn't mind feeding me,but she does have to make time for that, which can get hard on her working days...or if she has a lot of errands to do. The worst was when she had to go out of town, I had to go to a boarding spa, and she had to teach them what to do, MOL!! Pipo came along to snoopervise...Ha-ha!
So now I am 11, I am getting to be an old kitty...but the way I do silly things I still act kittenish! I love to chew on the cords like the USB to the confuser, earbud wires and even the power cord to the laptop. Between my spawsial noms, medicines and wire replacements, pawppy says I am his millionaire kitty, MOL!!
I don't know why I have to chew those wires, but they are so appealing...
I still wrestle with Pipo, pounce on my mousies and love to lounge in sunpuddles. And Catnip...don't get me started about catnip!! MOL! And making bread is a good way to massage the peeps here. Or in the air! My purr engine motorizes the bread making exercises:)
I got a new mousie to chase, as well as some ones that are on my page here.
And thanks so much fur those and fur all the other prezzies on my page. Its so decorated!
Manytoes made me this furry nice memento of this day:
And the Birthday/Gotcha Day Club sent me this one:
Thanks Birthday and Gotcha Day Club!
Meowmy also made me this one:
It was really snowy here, along with a lot of sleet, ice pellets and rain. A big wintry mess! I am glad I am an inside kitty fur sure!
Ad I am happy to be eleven years young!
Here end my diary pages as I cat-tated them to meowmy who is my petcreary as well....But I am still mewing as much as I can convince her to type fur me in this my blog...but you all already knew that, MOL!!
