Wow! What a pawsome surprise today to find out I was COTD!! Mom & I opened up the Community page and Poof! There I was staring back at us!!
It was a great honor, but what made it really special was sharing it with all of my friends!!! COTD would be meaningless without all of my wonderful friends who stopped by my page. You kitties sure know how to make a little orangie cat feel loved! :)

I'm sorry if I haven't been around as much lately. Mom was busy with lots of holiday stuff so my Catster time was cut. So unfair! But, now things are quieting down & I'm able to get my Catster time and get lots of attention from mom! I love it.
I decided that I would be extra lovey to mom this year. On new year's day I actually sat on her lap. Now, yes, I sleep with mom almost every night, but I never sit on her lap! So I thought I'd surprise her while she was watching tv and sit with her. (Ok, truth is that Coco was sitting up on the top of the chair, where I really wanted to sit!! But shhhh! Don't tell mom!) We stayed like this for a couple of hours!! Mom wanted to get up, but didn't have the heart to move me ;)
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday!! And I wish you all a very happy & healthy 2011!!

My friends made my day super special! I love you all!!
Today was an exciting day again. We got a special delivery from our sweet friends River & Simone....handmade catnip toys!!! Well, when mom called us over to check them out, I was pretty sure I just heard her say MY name. I mean heck, those other cats in my house haven't won anything...not like I have. So surely all the catnip toys were for me, no?? First Pixie came over to give them a sniff & I gave her a good smack! She ran and hid under the sofa. Next Harry came over & tried to take my favorite one, the PINK one, so I gave him a couple of good whacks to send him running. Coco knows better and stayed far away from me.
I had a pawsome time rolling around & licking the new toys. But then I spied Pixie lurking around so I hunted her down! I wouldn't stop when mom said "NO!" I was a merciless, catnip crazed kitty!! But....then mom caught up to me and grabbed me. She actually stuck me in the bedroom for 10 minutes on a time-out!! Can you believe it??? ME! Her sweet baby Jaybird. Hrmph!
I sure did enjoy those catnip toys...big thank mews to River & Simone!!! Can't wait to play with them again but now its time for my catnap!

Mom & I have done a lot of research on cat foods, so we thought we'd share some resources that were helpful to us. (She did the research and I did the taste testing MOL!)
Also the book Dr. Pitcairn's Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs & Cats is helpful reading if you want even more information.
Unfortunately like many things, pet food is somewhat "buyer beware." If you've never looked into pet food ingredients, there's a lot that you don't know. Don't feel bad for not knowing - mom didn't know all this stuff either. It wasn't until she started reading that she found out exactly what makes up a good quality pet food.
We could go on & on about this stuff but I need a catnap so that's all I'll say for now. ;) The most important thing is to start reading on this stuff. It will really open your eyes!
Gotta fo nap!

Hi my furry friends!
Do you know about Tiny Timmy? When he was a mere baby kitten someone put flea/tick stuff on him that cause him brain damage. For such a tiny kitten he had an enormous struggle ahead of him. You can read all about his story here: TT story
Fortunately TT was adopted by wonderful owners who helped him heal. He still has brain damage, that is irreversible, but he's now safe and happy.
His owners have entered him into the Pepsi Refresh contest cause they wanna spread his story, share info with pet owners on non-toxic alternative and provide low cost/free products to those in need.
Pawlease vote for Tiny Timmy! It only takes a second!! You can vote here: vote for TT
Thank mew all!!

My good friend Simone tagged me, so here it goes!
Name the 5 most annoying things your humans do, then tag 5 friends. Let's see how much humans annoy us all! hehehehe...
1) Trying to cut my nails. I have worked hard to get these shaped just right & then mom comes along and tries to ruin them! Can't you tell by my squawking that I wanna keep them?
2) Picking me up when I didn't ask to be picked up. Pay attention to my signs mom!
3) Not playing with me when I ask to be played with. Frankly I don't care if you're cooking dinner...get your priorities straight!
4) Putting silly hats on me when I am sleepy. How dare you take advantage of my slumbering state??
5) Making me dance to music. C'mon mom, cats don't dance!!
Truth be told, I don't get too annoyed by those humans...I love my pawrents too much! :)
Now to tag some friends. If you've been tagged already, pawlease furgive me!
If you're reading this and haven't been tagged yet...consider yourself tagged! MOL!

Before mom & I started reading into it, we used to think that Holistic = "kooky". Turns out we were wrong! MOL! Now that we've done some research we realize that holistic is really just another option for care, and its a more natural option too.
Now don't get me wrong, I still have to go to the vet (yucko!) and get my check ups and shots, but mom also pays attention to holistic advice and incorporates that whenever possible & when it makes sense. Sorry, but we aren't yet buying into the "healing with stones" stuff. We're a bit dubious about that, MOL! But we do believe that nutrition, herbs & other natural approaches can be great to support cat health.
We found some great reading material on the Only Natural Pet Store's website. They have newsletters & health articles that feature some helpful pet care info.
Here is the link to their newsletters:
Hope you all find this as helpful as we did.
Have a great weekend!

There's a hobo living in our garage!!! Some silly little bird has decided to move in and its driving me bonkers.
Our garage is attached to the house and in order to get into the back yard you must first go thru the garage. So when the humans let the doggies out, they go out the back door, into the garage and then out the back door of the garage. Mom keeps the back door of the garage open while they are out doing their business so that she can hear them at the back door when they are ready to come in. Apparently Mr. Hobo Bird was casing our house and learned the doggy's routine. Mom suspected something was in the garage because she found insulation on the floor that the bird must have pecked out of the ceiling.
Then one day in the morning she got up & let the dogs out and she heard a fluttering noise. Out flew a little Carolina Wren. I have been sitting at the back door every morning & trying to tell her there's an INTRUDER out there!! Let me get rid of that little hobo! But no, she makes me stay inside as usual. Doesn't she know that technically the garage IS inside??? Jeez! And now, she put a little container of birdie food out there for it.
The little intruder flies out in the am & then must fly in when mom opens the door for the doggies to go out after they eat dinner. This is ridiculous. I WANT THAT BIRD!!! Mol!

I'm super excited cause tomorrow (Sunday) we're having a Valentine's party in Catstertown. Now its not going to be your usual Valentine's party...nope! Its going to be super duper fun!!
The theme is Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club dance. And we're traveling to Liverpool!! Woo wee! Our party is being held inside of the famous Cavern Club - that's where the Beatles used to perform. We'll take the Catstertown Jet and once we land we'll be boarding the Magical Mystery bus to get us to the club.
We'll have yummy food & drinks, pawsome music from the 60's and some cool pictures too! Oh I can't wait!! I hope all my furriends will come along! If you're not a member of Catstertown & want to come, send me a paw mail and I'll invite you!!
The party is Feb. 13th at 3PM Catster time.
Sure hope to see you all there!

Well shoot! I got into a wee bit of trouble the other morning. Before I tell you the story, let me ask you this...those of you who have siblings, do you like to wrestle before breakfast? The kitties in my house act quite crazy while we're waiting for our morning nom noms! Here's how it goes:
Coco jumps up on the counter where mom is trying to open the cans & put the food in our dishes. So mom has to shoo her away...several times.
Pixie is rubbing against me or Harry which make us want to wrestle or chase her. Then she squeals like a piggy when we accidentally bite her too hard. And mom has to tell us to knock it off.
So anyway, the other morning.....I was chasing Pixie in the living room while waiting for breakfast and mom heard a CRASH! She came running & found the lamp on the floor. Whoopsies!! I didn't mean to do it, guess I just brushed against it too hard as I was running.
Mom was not pleased. The part where the light bulb goes in was cracked. Now she has to buy a new lamp. Sorry mom!!
We just get so excited about breakfast! MOL!!
