Well, perhaps I know, but mommy doesn't know why.
So she wanted me to ask other furs to ask their people what do they think about that.
The thing is: this morning everyone came sniffing my top, and my girls started licking me too, even my dog-friend Mia did the same.
And I just wanted to rest in-front of the heater as usual.
Daddy and Mommy wondered if I was okay, but I was okay and all was normal apart from that.
Later I went to sit in Daddy's office in his briefcase as usual, and mommy came to kiss me as she always does. And then she sniffed me hard on a head and said: "Oh, boy - you smell of piss a bit", but she kissed me anyways.
So she wants to know how can my head smell of cat urine!
And sure it's NOT my urine too! How could I piss on my head?
Mom said that people will need some information in order to answer this question, so here it is.
Litter boxes - NO. We ditched them ourselves about a year ago.
We like to go into the soft soil in the garden which is puffed up for us all the time - plenty of it around in the big yard.
And in rain season there is large litter box put up for us in the carport just under mom's bedroom window and changed with fresh sand every day, but we hardly use it even then. We don't like the smell of it around our house. In-fact, we often go marking all the area around out of our yard, so that others know it's our territory!
All windows in the house are open for us at all times (we go in and out as we wish). It's never very cold in Africa.
Am I sick? - NO. I've been to vets quite a bit in my 2.5 years of life, but mom just fusses for nothing - vets are happy with me.
Yesterday we had Front-line poor on put on us against ticks and fleas.
Our diet is as usual, no changes, and I eat normally as always.
Am I neutered and my girls spayed? - YES.
So, mommy was asking me - did you scare a stray kitty at night so that a kitty pissed on you in fright? Did I go and rub myself in someone's urine? Did a stray girl marked me as her boy so that my girls know I have a girlfriend now?
I wouldn't tell.
So mommy wants some answers and maybe you could help?

I put down my book, The Meaning of Zen, and see the cat smiling into her fur as she delicately combs it with her rough pink tongue.

Hi, my furiends!
I saw that Janie has entered in a CUTEST PET CONTEST!.
So, I decided to enter too. But I ended up in a different contest, and my contest is nearing the end, and my score is nowhere near to winning places.
Please could you help me and vote for me in HERE and submit your vote that my score can go up?
Please could you also help Janie in her contest by choosing her THE CUTEST PET?.
I also want to help my friend who entered into both contests in which me and Janie are.
I don't want to be selfish and I gave her the highest votes from me.
Please could you be so kind to help her too.
Her entries are: CUTEST PET CONTEST! in the Cutest Pet contest, and vote for her in HERE in the one I am in, so her scores can go up too. In this contest you can give five places to five photos and submit for your vote to count. So, I'm asking if you could give my friend Daisy higher place then to me, cos, see she really, really needs to win, cos her mommy is very sick at the moment and Daisy wants to help her buy her medications.
Please, please help us.
Love & Light to everyfur,

Recently I came across a very interesting debate in 'Cats' Meow'. The topic was Dogs vs Cats.
I've read all that Kitties have to say and all that Doggies have to say.
I was very pleased. Cos Kitties and Doggies talk nice to each other. We love doggies. And kitties that posted in there mostly were nice about that 'vs' thing.
There were some humans who posted not very nice comments. And so, I feel sorry for those humans. Cos, see, it's not what we think - it's what some of the humans can think.
It's been basically about cats are better than dogs on Catster, and dogs are better than cats on Dogster....
How can one say who is BETTER! We are so different, and we love each other! Why say that somebody is better? Every being is better than another being at certain things... so what??? We compliment each other in our Universe.
I and my whole family - feline & human alike, love our doggies dearly, and though we have our differences - we don't minimize them as persons, we just respect each others needs and go with that.
My family have dearest dog-friends in real life and on Catster/Dogster, and we stick with that friendship, no matter what's said by some humans, who might lack some intelligence themselves.
Love & Light to everyfur,

We already know from my previous entry that Little J. has guessed correctly this amazing being - which is 'Siamese Cat'.
Here is a prize I gave to Little J. for guessing:
Now - if anyone wants to play further - I will give a question about Siamese Cats that can be answered during the month.
All furs who will answer correctly - will get a reward.
After that my game will be closed.
But from now on we need to watch a Diary of Little J., whose turn it is to pick an animal, thing or a place.
What is the only one characteristic or quality in Siamese Cats which is historically superior to any other cat breed?
Answer can consist of only one word (or more if anyfur wants to explain their answer).
Please send me answers via paw-mail instead of comments to this entry....
Can't wait for your answers.

We have now the first correct guesser amongst kitties - Little J.!
Little J. is our first winner and now it's his turn to pick an animal, or a place or a thing and pass the game along, and (only if he wants) - to make his additions to original game rules.
I am not yet announcing the correct guess, because by my new rules guessing this amazing mammal will close on Thursday the 27th at 3:00 PM Pretoria time. Until then - everyfur can still win and share credits of being a winner!!!
Dogies - please take your chance. We haven't had any dogie winner yet.
On Friday the 27th or Saturday the 28th I will announce all winners and disclose the Correct Guess. After which the guessing of the animal will be closed to everyfur - kitty or dogie alike.
But................. Now I need to specify about another month of guessing.
This addition of mine is no obligation to anyone.
Only furs who want to play along may participate.
That's why I'll not send this addition to anyfur via paw-mail, because I just don't want to annoy anyone.
As I said in my comment to previous entry - there will still be a month for everyfur to guess further.
This time whoever wants to play-on (including winners), - can start guessing the right answer to a question that I will post in relation with this amazing being, which everyfur will know by then. There will be no initial clues.
Repeat: This time I will not send paw-mail to anyfur to do with this extension of a game.
Fur-people who are interested and want to play on - can read it in my entry post where I'll be announcing the winners to guessing this animal on Friday or Saturday.
Everyfur who will guess the correct answer will get a special reward as I said before. There will be no first winner. Whoever will answer correctly during the month of answering - will get equal surprise-reward.
If question will appear puzzling - everyfur is welcome to post a request for clues in comments. Then I'll give clues in comment as well. I will not answer requests for clues in paw-mail.
With answers - please put them in paw-mail to me instead of to comments. I will reply confirming that I got the answer pending without saying if it is a correct one. Every fur person can guess the answer as many times as they want.
When month to answer is over - I'll write up another entry disclosing the correct answer and posting correct answers by all furs who sent me paw-mails with them.
The outcome of this extension might be a surprising string of sharing the knowledge about this cool and amazing being.
I'd like to learn more - how about you?
Love & Light to everyfur

I just won the Noun Hound clues game from my pal Little J.! And I got a coolest prize!
So, it's my turn to have a pick of an Animal, Place, or Thing for you to start guessing.
Here are the rules for this cool game:
I choose an Animal, Place, or Thing – I give you 4 (four) or more clues as to what it is - You try to guess correctly – If you guess correctly, not only do you get to choose the next animal but I give you a prize for winning!
WHO ARE WE?
Here are four clues to this amazing mammal: -
1. We are mammals who like to talk a lot and our voices can be loud and raspy. We also can imitate crying human baby.
2. We have lean angular and athletic body. Our ears are large and pointed.
3. Out of all our family - we hold the record for super birthing ability - our females are very fertile, they can give birth as early as at three month old and to as many babies as 13 or more from one pregnancy.
4. Our coat evolves to almost white in countries with hot climate and goes very dark - almost black in countries with cold climate.
Just a tip: there are just two words by which this mammal can be specified best.
To be fair I thought I must tell that I:
a). did not give MOST known clues (that would be way too easy to guess then),
b). clue 4 is not commonly known and is true only in terms of Evolution of these beings.
Now have fun and start guessing.
Send me a Paw-Mail with your guess, it's better not to put them in the comments to this diary entry, for others to see what you've guessed.

I want to give HUGE thanks to Pigeon for Tagging me to play this wonderful game and for all the support he gave me and my family around Catster, when we were very new in here.
It's a special tag game for Thanksgiving. Copy this into your diary, and then "tag" five other-furs to respond.
Let them know in a pawmail. Before you begin listening, be sure to thank the fir who Tagged you.
List the five things that you're most thankful for this year.
1. I am Thankful to the chain of events that made it possible for me and my two sisters to live and be happy kittens.
2. I'm Especially Thankful to all my Catster Furiends for their support, generosity and kindness. It's so good to be around so many beautiful fur people - children of our blissful Earth!!!
3. I am Thankful to life itself, because it's so good to live and learn so many different things.
4. I am very Thankful to our human mom & dad for giving 6 of us so much love, respecting us for what we are, and for trying their best to understand all our needs and wants.
5. And last, but not the least - I am Thankful for my new pal Little J., because of whom my precious little sister Midnight is so very happy and in-love now; and therefore I'm thankful to Catster for being such great providers of wonderful contests and games, which give us, furs more opportunities to find more and more super fur-people and fur-angels to befriend and love.

What happened is so great, I just can't keep it for ourselves only.
Good reason to start a Diary.
This morning May did something that made my day and made all my sisters' day too!!!
May had her first catch!
It was a big, and I mean BIG dove!
She played with it for about 2 hours and ate some of it too.
We all watched patiently. Even Mia watched.
May growled to us not to disturb her.
None of us of course, wanted to take it away from May because she is the boss and she is the one who caught it!
But May is very kind and she always shares things with us.
May was so funny all covered with little feathers, they were stuck to her face and her feet. She looked like a big feathery bird herself.
So, about 6:00 in the morning she gave it to us to try it and play with it and eat it if we wanted.
May only ate less than half of it, because she wanted to leave some for anyone of us who wanted a taste. So good of her - I wanted it!
So, we all played with it, especially me and Janie, then girls gave up and just watched me play. I played a lot. And I growled a lot, because I wanted to be just like May! I liked May's gift so much!
Then mommy woke up and saw us. She took her camera and started taking pics and recording videos of me playing. Mommy was hardly awake yet, that's why the first film came a bit too jumpy, so funny, mommy being wobbly in the mornings. She says that it's because of her bad back and it's very saw until some time spent upright. When I asked her why - she said it's because she is getting old and it's normal for most old people, even cat and dog people, that it's sort of ageing thing. Well, I don't know that myself, because my back is strong and it feels good to be strong.
But then mommy got hang of it and the other three movies came out not so bad, considering she is not a good shot when it comes to camera. She said that we made her forget about her back. I am glad.
Here are some links if someone would care to see me play with May's catch:
But fun I had, that I did. I'd take that dove, throw it in the air, than take it again and throw it at Janie, and take it and throw it at Ambie, and even take it and throw it at mommy!!! All girls, including mommy were jumping and squeaking delightful noises when I did that. I didn't throw it at Midnight though, because she is only but twice the size of that dove and she is very lady-like, she might have not liked it. So I respected her. I really put up a show this morning.
At the end, when through playing I plucked most of the bird, I took it to the house, got behind the TV and all mommy could hear is crunch, crunch, crunch. She came and peeked on me several times to see if I was all right, but at the end there was nothing left of that catch, just only few feathers. I even went around and licked clean all the places which still held any smell of it. I liked the taste so much - thank you May.
Mommy said that she is very proud of us. She was scared at first that we would puke, but no, why should we? May and me were only too satisfied in our tummies.
And, though mom said that she was sorry for that dove, but what can you do? We have so many of them around, and cats will not kill what they won't eat. ''It's Nature'' - that's what mommy always says.
I agree. It was Goooood Naturrrrrrreeeeee too!
Okay, now we are gonna go for our well deserved nap and it's getting hot during the day. So, we sleep most of the heat through.
Bye, bye till the next time. And I'm gonna dream of my own catch, which I will share with May and all my girls.
Meowwwwwwaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!! Stretch, Stretchhhhhh!!!!!!!
