Spa has had my spotlight and I guess that is good. He went public and has so much response. He was a Diary Pick. Girl Human made a movie and it was a hit. They both are dancing around and are so very happy.
Scarlet has been doing so well and is eating every time I turn around. Girl Human tells me I need to watch my figure and that I can't have all those extra meals. Scarlet has put on some weight and she is looking good.
Scarlet has even been playing with Girl Humans coat and talking to it. Why??? It doesn't seem to answer her. She doesn't seem to mind. She just keeps on talking and talking. Crazy kitty.
Everyone at the Junction was so happy yesterday. 50 degrees and lots of nice warm sunshine. Cella came out to bask in the sun. She had not stepped outside since before Christmas the 18th of Dec.. She like to stay in. Girl Human made her go out and she was happy all day. The snow that fell Dec. 19th is still on the ground. Most of it is gone now and that is good. The moles are digging new holes and we are having fun chasing them.
All in all Girl Human was off and life was good for all of us on Tuesday.

What do we do on a Sunday Morning????? We watch TV. Girl Human had a birthday and her Daughter Human took he shopping at," ALL THE RIGHT PLACES". She brought us gifts.

I am not quit sure about the Video's she bought. One is real cool, birds jumping around and singing. I was in the front row seating for that one. We also got an Aquarium one,on Blue Ray. Amber's number one choice, but no goldfish.

There is this one that scared me so bad I got a real big tail. It was so scary that ALL MY HAIR STOOD UP. I went into attack mood. The thing was they didn't care. There were strange cats in our house. All sizes and kinds. They didn't care that I was ready to fight them all.

I had this thought!!!! Where these the cats that the Humans were talking about. THE NEW CATS had moved in. There they where not scared of me??? I am ready to fight. Was this those cats named New, Years and Resolution???? Which is Which??? Those crazy names, not for a cat.

Wow I sure am glad they live in that big box the Humans watch. I don't want to share my food, bed or litter box with them.

They did scare the " BJesus" out of me. Don't tell anyone, please!!!! Our secret OK!!!

The temp here was 7 degrees at 8 a.m. and now it is 27 degrees at 14:00 hours. I guess we are in a heat wave.

No one outside wanted to go out too cold, they say. Morgan, our snow bunny is rolling it the snow drift right now and loving it. She is crazy.

Hope all our Catster friends have a good week ahead.


Girl Human has to go back

Well here we are all cuddled up. The fire has just died. The Humans are getting ready for work. Their days of fussing over us, are almost over. We are sad.

We have had some wonderful days of being spoiled. We love being warmed by the fireplace, eating fine snacks, and having a place made just special for each one of us.

We have gotten to enjoy the fun of playing in wrapping paper, stealing the bows. We loved laying under the tree and looking at all the shiny decorations and the pretty lights.

We got to sit at the window and watch the snow outside while we were warm and toasty inside. We loved all the fun things that Santa Claws brought and we enjoyed hearing from Catster friends from all over the world and hearing from all of those we have not heard from for while.

We enjoyed sharing all the different ways people and kitties celebrate their holidays, around the world. That was worth so much to us.

We were saddened by the loss of some wonderful kitties. They are now at Rainbow Bridge watching over, all of us. We pray for their Fur Family and Humans. We know the pain and have felt it in years past. We know how difficult and trying it is to deal with sadness during the Holidays.

We also miss those who left Catster. We wish them the best and hope they will decide to return again to enjoy all the Catster friendships.

We watched while our Scarlet, went from near death herself, to a won bounce back. She now is the silly kitty we all know and love. She was able to sit at the Dinner table, in her chair and share Christmas dinner with us. We know that all those prayers, Our Catster friends said, during those hard times did work. We thank everyone of you so very much.

We are all so happy that we got to share with our Catster friends the days at Calico Junction. We are so very thankful for Girl Human's guardian angel. She was so happy that he did appear when he was needed the most.

We wish each Catster kitty and Human the best of best for 2010. And we are also blessed to have our Spokescat Annie and all her diary entries that kept everyone updated on the adventures at Calico Junction.


We all hope to bring you more news and pictures this coming year. We only hope that Calico Junction will be able to give our LOVES a lot of fun days ahead. We hope to provide for them better this year the we had last year.

We pray for all those wonderful loving kitties who have not found their FOREVER HOMES yet. We hope that 2010 will give comfort and food to all those in need.

Bless you all. Thank You for your friendship. thank you for your stories. All your Humans are your GUARDIAN ANGELS give them a special hug, nudge and purrr tonight.

What is all this about a NEW YEAR??? Does that mean more kitties to have to share my space with?? Do I have to share my food too??? What is a NEW YEAR???? I hope it is not one of those noise making little kitten??? I sure hope that is not it's name?? NEW YEAR, Here NEW YEAR, were are you?? NEW YEAR is that NEW YEARs??, is NEW YEARS here yet???? This is not sweet music to my cute little ears.

HAPPY NEW YEAR. If there is some kitty out there named NEW YEAR how can it be HAPPY with that name??? What is all the parties, fire works and noise for??? Boy this better be some SPECIAL KITTY.

HAPPY NEW YEAR. Is that another kitty name??? And what is a name, Resolutions??? I sure hope that does not mean three new kittens.

That is all I have heard the Humans talk about. I think I will go hide under the bed until this blows over. NO MORE KITTIES FOR CALICO JUNCTION, Girl Human had said not long ago.

Oh yes and what are these numbers they keep throwing around 201o???

What is this about, Not a creature was WHAT. Not here, all the creatures are getting into everything. Pooh is yelling out the window at nothing. Scarlet was laying across the kitchen table as if she owns it.

Male Human is just plain NUTS. But he is nuts in a nice way. Playing Christmas Music so loud that Santa CLAWS as got to know where we all are. He even danced with Girl Human. What a funny thing to see, Two Humans trying to step on each others paws, Whats with that????

Amber is even out of her Shell tonight, She is sitting in my spot, by Girl Human while she types my message to you all. WOW Amber wants Girl Human to pet and kiss her. This is so odd. She never does that. Girl Human told me to wait, while she gives her some loving, WELL!!!!! OK Amber what is it? What do you want???? Your hogging, What do you want???? What?? What did she say????


Yes and from all of us at the Junction a VERY MERRY HOLIDAY.



Sweeny and the snow

December 21st 2009 9:11 pm

Today Girl Human took Sweeny outside to see the snow. That is his first snow that he ever touched and smelled. Girl Human held him and let him put his front feet in the cold soft stuff. He smelled it but it had no smell at all. Sweeny looked at Girl Human and wondered why Humans get so excited about it.

Today Scarlet has seen the Vet and it to return Christmas Eve morning. When he called this morning Scarlet was chipper and walking around, purring and hungry. What a difference from last night. The antibiotics must be helping her a lot. Her Vet said he would drive out and drop off medicine any time Girl Human may need it. All those nice kitties and Human who have prayed for her, seem to have helped. Thank You once again. All we can do is take one day at a time. Today was good and Girl Human was so much happier.

Girl Human let Scarlet sit with her while she wrapped Christmas gifts. Scar;et enjoyed it. She washed herself while she watched Annie eat a ribbon. Yes Annie gave it back to Male Human in about 3 places. She wrapped his gifts and he didn't like it. He threw them away. Annie was O.K. with it as she had lots more gifts to check out, under the tree. Tonight will be fun. The 4 a.m. crazies should be interesting. Hope the tree makes it until Christmas.

We are all tired here from shoveling snow. Girl Human saw her Guardian Angel today and told him she had told the story on Catster to all. She told him he was now known worldwide.He gave that wide smile and flung back his head and laughed so very hard. He said he had been busy helping people dig out. He spoke for a little bit about how some people are not as nice as others when it snows. He must know something we don't about these people. Maybe he is Santa Claws???? Or is he a real Angel????

We dug and dug today. We did get the truck moved and chains put on it. We are waiting for the Vet to call. Male Human and I will get her to the Vet early.

She has not eaten much today, we let her walk around a little and let her sit on the chair in the dinning room. She liked that.

We would like to thank everyone for all the support and kind notes and prayers. We will let you know what we find out tomorrow.


Kitties say HELP

All we can see is White, White, White, we need sun glasses. 30" of snow is well over our heads. We can't even jump up on something high to look over the top of it. Everything is covered with this cold stuff. Male Human let all out who wanted to come out. All Sieben did was cry so he put him back in his house.

We were very lucky here. We did not get the wind they were saying we were going to have. So we did not loose our lights.

Yes winter is here. It's not even winter yet. A pot of Chili is cooking in the crock pot.

The snow has caused a major problem. It is 1:15 and Male Human is shoveling snow. He has broken way to the cats. We have two cats that would not go in. Bella and Lucy are out there some where. We saw them last night. We think they are under the Greenhouse. We saw foot prints going that way, last night.

The visitor, Jeb is here too. He is in one of the outside shelters that is heated. He can't get out. Male Human managed to get the front door open. He got to the snow blower and is making paths. He is digging out the shelter out now.

Girl Human got trapped is a real bad traffic jam last night. A 20 minute trip took 2 hours. The roads were so bad that 15 miles and hour was as fast as anyone could go.

Girl Human was very lucky and was behind the chemical truck for the first hour. Then he left and the last 8 miles was the worst. When she got to the hill a mile from home and that was as far as she could go. The car slide backwards down the hill and was sliding freely to a drop off. All she could do was let the car do as it wanted. A car behind her saw what was happening and backed up to give her lots of room.

An angel was there for her. He came walking up slowly to her car smiling. "Your car sure is cute, but it doesn't like this slippery road" he laughed. He guided her, while she back the car to a safe place to parked it. She loaded all she could into his car and she took a very big chance.

He drove her home. His name was Bob. She didn't know him personally. She had waved to him for several years, as she had passed his house on her way to work. He offered to bring his tractor up and plow the Junction's drive on Saturday, if she wanted. He had met Male Human at the store one day last summer. He had introduced himself,. With a quick decision, Girl Human felt she would be safe.

Male Human was very worried and so was Girl Human's mother. Girl Human had gone to her mother's to take her to the store for food. It was good she did as today there is not a road that is clear for miles. Even the interstates are empty. There are a few nuts out.

All the businesses are hurting, they have lost a big weekend. Our area depends on good roads. Most of the shoppers come from very long distances to shop. All the big box stores are closed, with no hope of opening Sunday.

We are going to have winds and drifting tonight. I don't think the Humans will be going to work Monday.

Scarlet is not doing well at all. When Girl Human got home, Scarlet had a very runny nose and some blood in her tears. Girl Human has been using everything she can to help her get through this. We can't get her to a Vet. There is no vets open. Both Girl Humans cars are out of service. The Junction's old snow car the Volvo is still broken down. It is going to cost $3500 to fix all that is wrong with it. Girl Human wanted that car yesterday, SO BAD.

Girl Human left a message on the Dr. machine to call when he gets to his office. She always seems to have a problem develop when the Dr. is not available. We feel Scarlet is not going to make it until Spring. She has to much going wrong. She is staying in the master bathroom with her teddy bear and a large heater. She let her self out once. Girl Human had to place something in front of the door. She knows how to open the door. She has done it before.

We are suppose to lose power tonight when the winds start. We have a generator, that keeps everyone warm as long as the gas last. We have 3 days worth of gas. No Global Warming Here.

So that is today's adventures at the Junction. We don't know if we will have a Christmas as they are calling for cold weather all week and more snow Christmas Eve. We are not use to this type of weather in our area.

Hope your Week before Christmas is a lot better then ours. One bright thing is that we have all our Christmas gifts and now we have a lot of time to wrap them.

Yes it is still snowing.
