Oh kitties, I have some very sad news to report. Mommy made sure to write River's entry first today because he has happy news, I am taking on the burden of reporting some very sad news.
Today mommy was driving in early in the morning to give her students their final exam. She was approaching the campus when she saw a little black kitty dart out from behind a parked car. A silver car driving past him hit him and kept going. Mommy slammed on the breaks and jumped out of the car. How could you keep driving? It wasn't necessarily this driver's fault. Sometimes bad things happen by accident. Sometimes people hit people by accident, let alone little kitties, but why wouldn't you stop? Mommy ran over to the little kitty. Kitty was not in good shape. This poor beautiful little black kitty was gone within seconds. The driver never stopped their car and the driver's behind mommy got all angry at her for blocking traffic. Mommy had tears in her eyes. She took kitty into the car and drove into a parking lot to stop. Kitty was hit right in front of a bunch of apartments and he looked like he might have had a family somewhere. Someone hit beautiful kitty and took him away from his family and didn't even stop their car. They were going to leave his little kitty shell on the pavement behind a parked car. What if kitty had been alive still and could have been saved? Mommy wrapped kitty in a towel she had in the trunk of the car and took a picture of kitty with her phone. She went to the apartment manager's office on the grounds and asked if they had anyone with a kitty like him. They didn't think so but they said they'd take kitty. Mommy was very reluctant to let kitty go, she wanted to make sure that if he had a family they knew what happened to him and didn't have to spend days searching for him never to find him, or worse yet, find his little body dumped in a trash can. The girl working the desk seemed genuinely concerned with kitty though and promised to bury him over by the river if he didn't have a home. Mommy relented and handed over kitty's little body. Poor kitty. She gave a description of the car but since she only got a few numbers on the plate and the vague model she doubts anything will ever happen. Hitting kitties with cards isn't even a crime in lots of places, even if you drive away like that.
Poor little kitty. Mommy wanted to take him to the vets to see if he had a microchip but she had to go give the exams. She hopes the girl behind the desk will do that. Mommy begged her to. She said if she couldn't do it, mommy would find the time to. She promised to do it. I hope she does it. I hope if kitty has a family they find out what happened to him. It may hurt, but it would be better than never knowing. The girl at the desk had a picture of her boyfriend and their puppy on her desk. Hopefully she knows what it feels like to love an animal and will do the right thing for kitty.
Can you all please take a moment to purr for kitty? He died this morning around 8am on the road by the university in Sacramento. Please purr for him kitty. Purr that he is at peace and that his family will know what happened to him. If he doesn't have a family, purr that he is at peace now at the rainbow bridge. All you bridge kitties, please go find him. He was a beautiful little black kitty. Find this kitty and tell him mommy is sorry she couldn't save him. Take care of him bridge kitties. Take care of the little kitty who was killed by a thoughtless human early this morning by the university. Help him up to the bridge and play with him. If he has no family, tell him to find Dinah and Eva, they'll watch over him until one day mommy can help him cross the bridge himself. Poor little kitty.

That's right kitties, the dreaded double kitty hug of doom. That's what I had to suffer yesterday. It was horrible. Allow me to explain to those of you who have never suffered in such a way.
Mommy had her last exam on Friday for her graduate degree. She was so worried when she left. 2 hours later she came home practically dancing and the VERY first thing she did... run right over to me and scoop me up. That's ok, I like being hugged by mommy... by MYSELF! The problem was, she started squeezing me and snuggling me and then she saw River and scooped him up in the OTHER arm and hugged both of us. Our butts were bumped together and mommy was kissing both of our cheeks. It was so horrible. The double hug. I don't share my mommy hugs with any brofur no matter how adorable everyone thinks he is. Icky icky icky double hugs of doom. I guess mommy must have done well on the test. I had to spend the rest of the day dodging her and running from room to room so she wouldn't hug me like that again. River was so stupid he just kept prancing right up to her for the attention. If I didn't know any better, I'd swear he liked that experience! So unbearably gross!
Don't worry kitties... I got back at her last night by taking over her whole pillow. I just tucked myself right under the blankets and rested my head on the pillow next to her, when she woke up this morning, I was still under the blankets but my head was in the center of the pillow and she had NO pillow. he he he! Evil Moe Moe giggles! I showed her!

Oh dear me kitties, let me tell you, I made that mommy of mine awfully mad at me last night! She was out at the gym last night at dinner time and she ended up staying late because she was waiting for the president's confirmation to the news last night and she couldn't get off the elliptical because that's where the TV was. So, needless to say, she got home late and I was waiting for her at the door DEMANDING my nom noms. How dare she make dinner late when I'm on a diet?
So anyways, before she showered she fed us. Or at least, she thought she fed us. She came back out and I was sitting glaring at the food bowls. She gave me my calorie control diet and she gave us our one pouch of good nom noms. Since we are easing onto this diet she figures she shouldn't pull all the good stuff right away. Turns out, she accidentally bought a bunch of flavor River and I don't like. We REFUSED to eat it. She said we were being cry babies and ridiculous about it and she wasn't going to change the food. I said... I WANT LUNA TUNA!!!
Well she tried to ignore us, she watched some tv, had a late dinner, and then mommy and daddy tried to go to bed. No dice mommy. I don't get luna tuna, you don't get sleepies! I walked up and down in front of the bed yelling at her. "mrat... Mrat... MRAAAAT!!! mreep mrap mrrrrrrrrrrrrat!" She finally couldn't take it anymore and she got out of bed making all kinds of angry noises about how insane we were behaving. She walked out and put the icky flavor outside for the stray and got us a fresh bowl! We promptly chowed down and then joined them for sleepies!
Daddy laughed at how silly we were all be having and mommy growled at us, but she still let me sleep on her butt, so I guess it's all ok! hehehe! A Moe Moe gets, what a Moe Moe wants!
I still don't think I'm THAT spoiled though, do you kitties?

HOORAY! I'm so happy now that I'm a DDP today! Thanks so much diary gal and catster! hehehe! Sorry to all the kitties who read my entry yesterday and thought that someone had gone to the bridge. I didn't mean to scare you kitties, I just really think a diet is the worst thing in the world. I woke mommy up this morning by sitting on her pillow yelling at her for more food... needless to say the attempt backfired and I DID NOT get more nom noms. Sigh. Oh well... when I lose this weight I'm so jumping up on the table to get River's delicious food up there!
Anyways, thanks to all you kitties who sent me presents and messages and comments. You're all the best! Some day mommy will be able to come back to Catster more so we can play, I hope it's real soon cause I love and miss you all so much!

Oh kitties, it's a sad sad day. I have sad sad news to report. Sigh. I wish I didn't have to tell you this kitties, it makes my little eyes water just thinking about it but I must, it is important you all know this. My mommy... has put me... back on my diet.
I know, you can't believe it can you? There's no way to prepare for the news when it is that bleak. What can you do about it? I'm so horrified to even have to say it myself. Mommy says I'm just too much of a chunk munk these days. (Apparently chunky monkey wasn't degrading enough - she had to shorten it!) Mommy told me she loves me very much and she wants me to live a very long life so I have to take off some pounds. She got worried about me because the other day I was having some *blushes* problems reaching a sensitive area to clean. I'm a lady so I won't elaborate on that but suffice to say mommy saw me and said that that was the last straw. It's time to lose some weight. I'm back on less than a cup of calorie control diet from my vet a day and she is allowing me to split a pouch of my favorite wet food with River a day. (Mostly because River steals my diet control food grrrrrrrr!)
River gets all his delicious gravy soaked nom noms up on the table now. That's right... she's letting that BROTHER of mine eat off the TABLE like he's a PEOPLES! I can't believe the insult. Just because River doesn't have to lose weight doesn't mean you should taunt me like this. I don't like jumping that high because of my lack of front claws. GRRRRRRRR again to the people who declawed me before mommy and daddy found me. Is there no END to the suffering I must endure?
I'll keep you kitties updated about my weight loss. I hope I lose it all fast. I don't want this diet thing to go on forever. I HATE dieting. I HATE the idea of my belly getting smaller, that will mean LESS belly TO RUB! Do you hear me kitties? She wants LESS MOE MOE BELLY TO RUB!!! Oh... the inhumanity!

I just had to hop online and say how excited I am! My last two diary entries were a little bit of a call to arms, and the Catster community responded so fantastically that I can't even believe it! So many of you went and voted down that dog hater in the video game cover contest and today we checked in on Vern's auction, we can't believe it! Our catnip toys are all ready pulling in some really great bids!
We are so proud of you kitties! So much money is being raised right now for Vern, and we are so happy we are helping. Is it wrong that we feel bad though every time a friend gets out bid by another friend for the toys? Hehehe! I just wanted to thank all of you though for bidding in the auction and helping earn money for Vern! For anyone who hasn't seen it, here's the link to the facebook page. If you aren't on facebook but still want to help out the little guy, I think Finney and Lacey's mommy can help you out, or you can contact Vern's mommy directly!

Vern's Catster Page
I'm so proud of all you kitties and all the help you are willing to offer to those in need. GREAT BIG PURRS for all of you! Thanks so much for making me and my family proud to be on Catster!
P.S. keep bidding on our catnip toys! hehehe! Remember, it's for Vern!
P.P.S. Mommy has taken some very adorable and some not so flattering pictures of me recently that she wants to upload onto Catster with some new colors behind me! As soon as she's motivated to deal with the new picture uploaded again, look for those! hehehe! I KNOW you all want to see more pictures of my beautiful BELLIES!!! hehehe!

I know I promised you all my next diary updated would be about my beautiful belly in the sun, but I found something a little more important to discuss with you. But just so you know I'm a kitty of my word...
I, the Princess Moe Moe toes, have the most beautiful belly in the world! This is why I'm always eating, it's a masterpiece and I must continue to work on it to keep it in the perfect shape it has achieved! Maximum belly rubbing space! hehehe! I've been sunning this beautiful belly all morning long with my brofur in our great big green bed my mommy made us! I'm one happy snuggled up Princess! HOORAY!
Now, back to the important matters at hand! Many of you know the little kitty Vern. He's having a second auction to help out with his medical bills on Facebook. You can read about it on his diary page, but suffice to say he has some serious medical problems and some serious medical bills. You should all go over to facebook and check out his auction. Me and mommy have donated some stuff to the auction! We donated a big bunny foot kicker, a mousie, a heart, and a big pillow toy! So.... if you didn't win anything in our last quiz game you can still get yourself a catnip toy AND help out a little kitty in need! I also heard a rumor that there was one of the last remaining and ever so precious Hazel Lucy hats in the auction. This item is priceless, and Hazel Lucy's mommy so generously donated it to help out little Vern and his medical bills. There's lots of good stuff there, go check it out kitties and bid generously! If you've got nothing to give, at least go visit Vern and send him some lovies and think warm thoughts for him and purr generous purrs. He needs them kitties.
Vern's Auction on Facebook
Thanks so much kitties!!! Remember, there are some extra special toys in that auction, they will be custom made for the winner and me and mommy are taking care of the shipping! Go bid kitties! Go bid right now! hehehe!

Now, we don't do stuff like this often. Mommy feels pretty strongly that our diaries should just be about us or our catster friends who need help or something like that, but this is important so I'm posting it anyways.
My daddy showed us something last night that he knew would make us very angry but he wanted mommy to know about it because there was something she could do to help change it.
Lots of you know about that football player Michael Vick. He's a very bad man. A VERY BAD MAN. We aren't big football fans in this house but we know enough to know we cannot support anything this man does. If you haven't heard about Vick you are very lucky because he did some horrible things to puppies. He ran a dog fighting ring. We won't go into the details because we know you all know how serious this is and how horrible the details are. Well, after his very short jail sentence, he's back playing football. We don't approve of this ourselves, but it isn't for us to make that decision I guess.
However, there is something going on we can't support and must fight. Michael Vick is one round away from winning a contest to be the cover a new football video game thing. Again, me and mommy don't do the gaming thing, we don't completely understand it, but we know that Vick DOES NOT deserve to be on the cover. He's won four rounds to be on the cover and is in the final match up. 4 times people consciously chose to honor a dog murderer on the cover of the game and this makes us sick. I don't have any doggy friends, we don't have any puppies in our family, but no puppy deserves what happened to Vick's dogs and he shouldn't be honored for this. Please kitties, rally your troops for the doggies sake and vote down this monster. Here is the link. All you have to do is click the red vote button and then select the other guy. I don't know who the other guy is but you know what... he probably didn't murder doggies. Please kitties, you can't want to see this man receive any more honors and awards.
Vote OUT Vick!
I'm sorry I wrote such a big post on it but it really upsets us. If you don't feel strongly about it please feel free to just over look this diary entry but if, like me and mommy, you think animals are important and shouldn't be mistreated and that Michael Vick got off easy for the horrible things he did, please vote against him.
I'm also including two links to video game reviewers my daddy pays attention to discussing the issue in case you want to learn more about it. I can't vouch for the material in it as clean or not profane, but I can vouch for the view points!

The Escapist - Madden 2012
Thanks for reading this kitties. I'm sorry it was so dark and so politically charged, but it's important to me and mommy. It won't happen again! Next diary entry will be about my beautiful belly being rubbed and sun puddles!

Well, mommy was looking over my profile page the other day at all my pictures and she realized something. Our sofa, our carpets, our tables, everything is all the same color, and it matches me. This is both good and bad. The good thing is that my fuzzies don't show up very much, the bad thing is all my pictures look very boring to her, despite my beauties! And... let's face it, I have GREAT beauties! hehehe! So, mommy decided she's going to brighten up the house a whole bunch. She went out to the fabric store and bought lots of bright colored material. She's going to make new pillows and throws for everything in our house so that the colors are brighter. Mommy wants some pictures of me on a brighter background so that I stand out more instead of blending in. A lady as pretty as me should never blend in with the background! So, stay tuned for some new bright pictures coming your way of the one and only Simone! Also... I think once she's done making everything we'll have some left over fabrics... who wants a new mousie toy? hehehe!

Well, first off, I want to assure the kitties who won door prizes and kitty congeniality prizes, they are being mailed tomorrow! HOORAY! They are all sewn and sitting on the buffer in the dinning room. River tried to steal one of them before it was done! hehehe, he ran off with it in his mouth, it was so funny! Mommy chased him down to get it back, so one of them will probably smell like River, sorry about that kitties! Mommy meant to mail them last week but stuff got out of control around here. Today mommy had her first graduate exam for her Masters. She was all loopy when she got home, it was a lot of work and she was very tired. Last night, she had a nightmare about it, I had to wake her up by bopping her on the nose with my little paw, I didn't want her to roll over on me! Sheesh mommy, there's a Moe Moe sleeping here, let's stop it with those nightmares!
So the super duper presents we got this weekend? They were fantastic! Petsmart was having a really big sale and there were bins and bins of stuff they were selling off really cheap, mommy and daddy found TWO brand new water fountains for us. You don't even want to KNOW how many of those things we have in this house but suffice to say River and I barely ever have to go very far for fresh running water. I think that's the way it should be! These are some pretty neat fountains too, I'm pretty impressed. I would have liked more toys from the store but hey, a girls gotta take what a girl can get! hehehe! Water fountains are expensive too so who knows when we would have gotten new ones if they hadn't found these!
The last thing I want to tell you is that mommy thinks we've taken pity on our new orange and white stray kitty who comes here for nom noms. Recently we've only been eating half of our wet food and then demanding fresh food. Mommy gets so sick of arguing with us that she puts the old food out for the stray and then gets us new food! Every morning the wet food bowl is licked clean! This works out great for all of us, the stray is getting super healthy nom noms that are extra tasty and River and I get fresh food more often! hehehe! I recommend you kitties try the technique! The nom noms aren't even being wasted! hehehe! We're just being nice kitties and sharing with those less fortunate then ourselves, we aren't spoiled! Oh no we aren't! hehehe!
