As usual I am late sending out my thank you's because I've been waiting on the mom-lady to actually let me on the computer! Thank you all for making my birthday so very special!! My sweet friends have left such wonderful purresents on my page. And such kind messages too! Friends like you make a kitty feel extra special!
Not much is new in our house. Mom still keeps breaking her new year's resolution of not working so much. I think she has a better chance of sticking to her diet than not working so much MOL!!
I hope you all are doing well! Thanks again for making my birthday so special.

Well, my rotten brother Julius told my secret so I guess I might as well fess up.....I had WORMS! Oh, so humiliating!!!
It all started cause we got fleas. One of those darn puppy dogs must have had a flea on it that wasn't killed by their flea drops and jumped ship to us kitties. And then we all got the fleas :( The first stuff mom used on us did not work so she had to get a different brand.
Anyway, then when mom thought the flea woes were over....she noticed something on my tushie. Mom was hoping that it was just litter (we use a natural brand that is light beige in color) and so she wiped my tush off with a tissue. But then mom noticed it again the following day after I used the litter box. Mom figured it was worms and she was right!
The next part was even worse than mom trying to wipe my tush....she had to give me a pill!! She tried to hide it in some steak but I found it and wouldn't eat the steak. So she ended up wrapping me in a towel, wrestling with me for awhile and then managed to get the pill down my throat. BLECH! It was awful, but you'll be pleased to know that I got in a couple of good swipes at mom's hand and managed to inflict some pain bleeding to her! ha ha ha! Take that!!
But then I got treats and the wormies are gone...yay!! Mom and I both hope we never have to experience this again!!
Hugs & kitty kisses to my friends!

I don't know when Pirate day started but I think my gotcha day should take precedence!! This morning I celebrated my gotcha day by snuggling next to mom's feet while she was sleeping. It was a nice way to start our day.
Its also my sister Coco's gotcha day too. We were adopted together, and while we weren't from the same momma cat, we still are shelter sisters!
I think I should get some chicken for this special occasion....don't you agree? :)
Aargh, purrhaps me should just take that chicken, like a pirate would do!
Happy Pirate day to all you kitties!!

Can you imagine my surprise when I went to my bedroom and found another black kitty there????!!!! I was quite shocked, but nonetheless I jumped up on the window perch to say hello. Well, can you believe she HISSED and GROWLED at me? That's no way to say hello!
I later found out that this interloper's name was "Shadow" and she was staying with us for the week cause my parents were cat-sitting. I did not care for this girl at all. First of all she followed MY mommy around all the time. And MY mommy actually picked her up and kissed her and did that baby talk that she usually does to ME! Shadow would wrap her paws around mom's neck and hug her. GRRRRR! And if that weren't bad enough, Shadow then started chasing ME! If I went into MY bedroom she would chase me out and back down the hall!!! She even chased Harry!!
Mom told me she was "declawed" but I don't really know what that means & I wasn't sticking around to find out!
Fortunately Dad took Shadow back to her own home. I'm still being cautious though. Maybe she's gonna sneak back!! Nooooooo!!!
At least MY mommy is all MINE again! :)

Last night mom was watching a show on Animal Planet called Too Cute Kittens and I was napping on the couch. During part of the show a dog was barking and woke me up. I looked around and saw that it was on tv. Then I saw KITTENS on tv. They were mewing and getting into all types of trouble. I couldn't stop watching it! Mom had fun watching ME watch the show. Then the commercials came on and I was all confused. Where did all my cute kittens go? Well I had to find out so I got off the sofa and jumped on the tv stand for a closer look. Hmmm...still don't see them. So then I looked UNDER the tv stand...kittens! Where are you?? Maybe they went BEHIND the tv....nope! Where did they go? MOL! Mom was laughing quite hard at me. I just wanted those kittens back!
Hope you all had a nice weekend! I can't wait to watch more kittens!

Oh my sweet friends thank you all for the wonderful gifts and notes you sent me for my COTD!!! Mom has been out of town at her mom's house (my grandma) Grandma had surgery so mom was there helping her. Unfurtunately mom was away for my COTD win!!! It made me a bit sad...but what made me even sadder was that mom was eating macaroni & cheese and meatloaf without ME! Yes my super sniffer was able to tell that she was eating this even though she was 50 miles away! Hrmph! And she didn't even bring any back for me.
Well I decided to forgive her...after all she IS my mom...the ONLY human I love MOL! I gave her lots of kisses today...she even had to tell me to stop.
I'm sending lots of kitty kisses to all my friends too. Thank you all again. So sorry I'm late saying thank you. I really do need a more reliable secretary!
Hugs & purrs

Happy Sunday to all my friends! Today is shaping up to be a beautiful day here in our neck of the woods. The sun is shining---hooray! We have had so many rainy dreary days lately...sure is hard to find a spot of sun to nap in on days like that! But today is gorgeous - hope its nice where you are too.
This morning I followed mom into the basement where she was folding laundry & rubbed around her legs. She picked me up and held me in her arms and boosted me a little higher so I could look out the basement door window. I really liked this and started purring like mad. Then I started head butting mom's chin so she gave me kisses on top of my head. This bliss went on for a few minutes...until........mom said "Oh Pixie! I think you farted!" mol mol mol! Whoops! Excuse me! Mom has bought some different kitty food - its cheaper and she thought she could save a bit of money. Ha Ha Mom! You get what you pay for!! Julius is a little gassy from it too. But don't tell him I said so!!
We've been missing our Catster friends so much! Mom has been so busy that she's been sliding on her duties as our typist! Sheesh! If she didn't buy our cat food I'd think about firing her! I've been trying to tell her how much I miss her but she's not paying attention! :o Every morning after I eat I start following her around from room to room as she gets ready for work. She pets me and talks to me but then says "I'm sorry Pixie I have to get ready for work." I miss my momma!
Oh and as for growling at strangers - I'm still doing that. The little girl across the street stands outside to wait for the bus and I growl at her from my window. Mom has been trying to pet me & tell me that its ok. But so far I'm not buying what she's selling me!! Mom wonders how you socialize a scaredy cat like me?? I wasn't like this as a kitten.
Enjoy your Sunday my friends!
Hugs to all

Hi kitties! My mom wants to ask for help so I'm gonna let her borrow my diary for a bit....
This is Pixie's mom here. I've noticed that Pixie has become even more afraid of people than she used to be. She is strictly an inside cat and nothing has occurred to cause this behavior. Lately she has begun to growl at people she sees from the window. The first time it happened it took me a minute to realize it was her and not the dogs. I thought that was just a fluke because she was growling at the mentally challenged man that lives in our neighborhood. He sometimes acts erratically so I thought perhaps she just was frightened by something he did.
Today I opened the window for her and she started growling again. This time she saw our neighbors getting into their car. Now its not like they live right next door. She saw them across 2 yards...I couldn't even make out their faces.
Has anyone else experienced this? She's been acting normally otherwise. She is eating, playing and is still affectionate to me. She shows no inkling of illness, so I really think this is a fear, not anything physically wrong. I want to help her get over this fear, at least to some degree, but I don't know what to do! Any suggestions?? Thanks!
Ok, its Pixie again. I don't know why my mom thinks this is a big deal, but she does. I'm just warning people to stay back!! MOL!!
See ya later kitties!!
Pixie (and Pixie's mom too!)

Happy Valentine's day everycat!! I'm sending you all lots of virtual hugs!!
Speaking of love, I have to tell you about my mom. She's the only person I love! I tolerate my dad but I really don't like him touching me!! I think it hurts his feeling cause I run when he tries to pet me...its not his fault...its just the way I am. Mom thinks maybe a man scared me or hurt me when I was a kitten. But I do like to roll in Dad's stinky t-shirts! MOL! Mom thinks this is so gross. When Dad comes home from work & changes he throws the t-shirt on the floor for me to roll in! Mom is always yelling at him to pick it up! Hee hee!
Oh, and if we have visitors, furget it! I'm hiding in the basement. Yep, I'm a real scaredy cat. But when it comes to Mom, she's my person. I crawl all over her. I lick her face. I sit on her and purr purr purr! Mom is secretly flattered that she's the only one I like...shh! Don't tell Dad! Even when she went to the shelter to see the kitties, she never even saw me until she sat down in the cat room & poof! There I was crawling into her lap :)
Ok, now on to the eyeball segment. Me & my (adopted) brother Harry get brown eye gookies in our eyes sometimes. We've been to the vet & she said its just allergies. Does any other cat get these? Mom is mildly worried because she thinks it could indicate something is off in our immune systems...even though we are very healthy otherwise. She just got us some holistic eye stuff that she's going to try putting in our food. I keep telling her she's a worry-wart but she asked me to ask all of you anyway.
Time for my afternoon nap in the sun! Happy Valentine's day! Love you kitties!!
