This is the 2nd time I'm writing this, the 1st time I had just written a nice long entry when the computer froze & I lost it all. ~sigh~ Now I'm too sleepy to go into great detail so here are the highlights:
- Got 2 servings of cat milk
- Lots of play time with mom
- Mom let me pick my dinner
- Presents were a new Yeoww Apple & cardboard scratcher
- Ended the day with snuggle time on Mom.
Most of all I want to thank all my friends for making my day so special!! Extra big thank mews to all those who sent me wonderful gifts. A kitty never can have too many party hats, shamrocks, cupcakes, shrimpies, & green ale. Thanks to:
Luke & fam
Xena & fam
Kibbles & fam
Napoleon & Colorado
Big Harry & fam
Milo & fam
Nadia & Gump
Simone & River
Simon & Angel Reuben
Riley & Skippy
Eleanor & fam
Rex & fam
Love you all!!!

Hee hee hee! Mom miscalculated how much cans of food we had left and she ran out before our delivery. So we get to have kitty junk food until it comes. She got it for us at the store & it came in these packets and I swear half of it was gravy. WOW! Harry, Pixie and Coco kept jumping up on the counter as mom was trying to get the food in dishes!! Mom said don't get used to it. We're going back on the healthy stuff as soon as the delivery comes.
Oh she also tried a different cat litter too. Usually she buys the natural pine clumping litter but this time she got one of those "name brand" litters. Peeeeeweh! Its so loaded with perfume. UGH! We smell all flowery and mom hates scooping it cause she says she can taste the perfume. Last time she'll buy that stuff!
Its hard for us to get healthy food - mom has to order it online as there are no pet stores closer than 40 minutes away. And those are just Petco & Petsmart which don't carry the brands we get. Mom's dream is to open up a healthy pet store. She'd stock it full of healthy foods and treats, have books on diets, and staff to help educate the public about what those labels really mean. Even flyers and pamplets on how to make your own food. Also she would carry things like blood meal - an ingredient for many homemade doggy foods that is very hard to find around here. Oh and of course lots of toys! I'd be the official toy tester MOL!
Well, that's just a dream for now....but maybe one day!
Hope you all had a pawsome weekend!

Hi my friends! Hope you all had a lovely Easter. I got a nice surprise today - I got an Easter bunny on my page! It was sent anonymously so I will say THANK YOU in this diary entry.
My mommy gave me another surprise this afternoon....she bought me a harness. At first I was like, yo, mom, whatcha think you're doin' puttin' that dog thing on me??? Why, I even gave her a crabby meow as she was doing it. Once she got it on me she then attached a leash. WHAT???? Mom, I'm no doggy!! Then she picked me up and carried me out to the backyard. She set me down on the deck and then I furgot all about being insulted by her treating me like a dog! I sniffed the deck, then I scampered down the steps. I stopped right before I got to the green stuff. Never hurts to be cautious I always say. So I gave it a sniff and it seemed ok so I jumped down into the grass.
Oooh, it tickled my paws! Hee hee! I went trotting over to the garden area and walked in the mulch. Hey, that feels funny too! So many smells to sniff!!
Then all too soon mom picked me up & we went back inside. She said if its nice tomorrow we will venture out again! Woooooooo! This is big fun! And the best part is that I am the only kitty in the house who is gets this honor. The harness is small and there's no way Harry or Coco could fit in it. And Pixie's too much of a scaredy cat to try this.
Spring! I loves it!!!!

I was a DDP on 5/2 - WOW! That was pretty cool!! As mom can tell you, I sure do like attention MOL! Thank you all for your well wishes & gifts!! What a nice surprise! I sure am a lucky kitty to have such wonderful friends!
Unfortunately I haven't been outside since last Friday...and I am totally bummed about that. I've been telling mom very LOUDLY that I want to go out, but she keeps saying no. I think its cause she found a tick on the dog. They get stuff put on them for flea/tick prevention, but us kitties do not. Mom really doesn't want to put those chemicals on us since we are indoor kitties. (she doesn't like putting it on the doggies either but she's afraid they'll get Lyme disease if she doesn't)But my recent excursions on my leash have presented a new problem. So mom said she's going to treat the yard with some spray she got and then MAYBE I'll be allowed outside again :( Stoopid tick has ruined my fun.
And speaking of fleas, I think Catster needs to get flea dipped! MOL! We're still not getting notifications for comments on our pictures & seems like the site it a little slower than usual....or purrhaps thats just my computer.
Thanks again everycat! I love ya all!!
Purrs & hugs,

I wish I had thumbs cause if I did I could give this new food 2 thumbs down!!! Mom tried a new canned food that she thought I would like and I am totally snubbing it! It did not pass the sniff test. If mom would have looked closer at the ingredients she would have seen that there is stinky fish on the list. Yuck! I'm a turkey or chicken cat. Don't go sneaking in any fish on me!!
I have been very purrsnickety about my food this week. Mom thinks maybe I have a hairball so she's been giving me some of that hairball goo. That's ok, I like that stuff! Mom said she needs to make a spreadsheet to track all the different cat food she's tried with me. Tee hee! I like to keep her on her toes! In fact, lately I've been snubbing my favorite Thanksgiving day feast food. Well I'm just tired of it. Jeez, give me more variety mom! (not that I'll eat it! MOL!!)
In other news, Dad is away for 4 days. This morning I let mom hold me the way Dad usually does. Normally I squawk at her if she tries this but since Dad's not here, I'll permit her to do this. As long as she rubs around my ears too. Oooooh yeah, that feels good!
Hope you all have a pawsome weekend! Mom has 2 more new foods for me to try, so I have a busy weekend of food snubbing ahead of me! Hee hee!!

At the top of my grumpy list is getting my nails trimmed. Mom attempted this on Sunday & it sure didn't go well. She grabbed me and tried to trim the 1st nail. I screamed and yanked my paw back. After a few tries she let me go, only to pick me up again and wrap me in a towel. Every time I felt the clippers touch my nail I yeowled and pulled my leg back. Then I started to growl and hiss. But mom persisted so I did what had to be done...I bit her. She then tried to cover my face with the towel so that I wouldn't bite but I jerked my paw around like crazy so she couldn't cut it. Frustrated she let me go. Harry had come over to see what all the fuss was about. I gave him a quick paw to the face. Mom heard my claws hit him and she yelled at me!
So I avoided mom the rest of the day. But then that night I came in bed & slept on top of her. And I did the same last night too. Today I crawled on her lap and was a very clingy baby.
But...later tonight I was on the steps trying to give Coco a good smack & my silly claws got stuck in the carpeting. I gave out a loud cry and mom came to help. Then she said "if you let me cut your claws this wouldn't happen." Well I gave her the grumpiest look I could muster and then took off down the steps. Sheesh!
And one other thing that makes me grumpy???? Not getting my emails when my nice furiends make comments on my pictures/diary. I'm still not getting them! This makes me feel quite the grumpy little monster. Growl!!
Hope you all are less grumpy than me. I think mom intends to get dad's help & cut all my nails. Hiss growl yeowl!!!!

Four years ago today mom & dad adopted me from the SPCA. They had been in to see me earlier that week and fill out all the paper work and were anxiously awaiting to be told when they could come pick me up. Finally they got the call that I was all ready so they drove out to get me right away.
They had to sit in the waiting room for the tech to bring me out. After what seemed to be an eternity, he came out with little me. He asked them if they had a name for me and they said "Julius". He laughed and seemed to think that was a very fitting name for me already. Then he told them that I was driving everyone nuts in the back room cause I was meowing and meowing. Even as a tiny kitten I had a big mouth. MOL!!
When I came home, I was very loving toward mom. Purrhaps I could sense that she needed some extra love. She had lost her beloved Zoey earlier that year and was felt like a big hole was in her heart. So I did my best to plug up that whole with my tiny orange fluff!! Anyway, that 1st night, they thought I should sleep in the kitty carrier since I was so tiny. Well, I told them what I thought of that! Let's just say they didn't get much sleep that night & that was the last night I was stuck in the carrier!!! Hee hee!
Thank you all for helping me celebrate my gotcha day!! Mom & I can't believe its been 4 years already.
Have a great weekend!!

I got to go outside today!!! It was big time fun for me. Mom took me out on my harness for about 10 minutes. She said it was too hot to stay out any longer, but I didn't mind the heat.
I'm getting used to walking on that green stuff now. At first it used to tickle my toes but now I am trotting across it. Mom thinks its hilarious that I meow the whole time I'm walking about. Hey, I'm just excited! Next time she takes me out she's going to try to make a video.
There was a fly that was fun to chase today. I would have caught it too but that darn harness hinders my hunting skills. So I walked all around the yard (meow meow meow) and in mom's flower beds (meow meow) and finally under the bushes where I thought it would be nice to roll around in the dirt. Mom didn't think that was so nice so then she scooped me up and took me inside. It was still fun!
Oh and you should have saw the look Coco gave us when we came back in! Ha ha ha! Too bad you are too fat to fit in the harness!! ~ahem~ sorry mom, I mean too bad Coco's too fluffy to fit. ;)
Hope you all are staying cool. Its 93 here today but they are promising a cooler day tomorrow.

Hi friends! Well mom just spent all morning before work fixing our computer. We got infected by some nasty virus that popped up a dummy Windows Vista repair window.
Fortunately mommy was able to do a System Restore and then cleaned the computer of that nasty bug. But we wanted to warn everybody to be careful out there! We were only on FB and Catster yesterday so we don't know where we picked this up.
Jeez, I sure would like to give those people who make malware or viruses a piece of my mind (or even better, introduce them to my claws!!)
Be careful my friends!

I was tagged by my sweet little pal Tabitha!!
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?
NOISY!!!!!! Dad gave me the nickname squawkbox because of how loud I am. I meow for milk, for attention, at bugs, to go outside, and for my sister Pixie to come play with me. I'm quite the vocal kitty!
2. Litterbox! Cover your business or let some other kitty cover?
Cover my biz, of course!!
3. Happy! Favorite Daily Routine?
Breakfast, cat milk, PLAY!!, nappy time :) Repeat at dinner time, 'cept I don't get the milk then.
4. Hiss! Least Favorite Routine?
Nail trimming time..nooooooooooooooo!
5. Ding-Dong! What do you think about visitors to your house?
Disappear when I hear the doorbell, but once everyone is settled in I come out to check out who dares to intrude on my domain!!
6. Friends! Do you like other animals?
I like to wrestle and chase my siblings. Unfurtunately sometimes I get too rough and then mom scolds me. When I was a kitten I used to like my sisfur Lily (a doggy) We would wrestle and then I would nap with her.
