Hi there kitties all!
Well, it's been a while, but I've got a lot of stuff to catch you all up on! First and foremost, mommy and daddy went off to NH for a week a little while ago to visit their families or something like that and I, as the River Cat, must object to that. They left me! No, kitties, did you hear that right? THEY. LEFT. ME. ME! ME ME ME!!! Wonderful, cuddly, sweet, loving, gentle, loyal,hug-able, snugly, ME! This isn't even close to being ok. I was so devastated. I mean... I guess it could have been worse, but still.
They left me and sisfur at home and they hired this very nice pet sitter to come take care of us, she was very good to us. By the end of the week I was giving her great big River hugs and blocking the door when she tried to leave, cause that's how I am! I loves a good River hug for a nice lady who takes care of me, just ask my mommy, she can't get me off of her sometimes, I just hold on and hug with all my might!
So, in the end, it was ok. Mommy and daddy came home, and I got them back without too much trauma, although I did sleep under the blankets in mommy's arms with Sisfur for the next couple days purring like a storm. "NEVER EVER LEAVE US AGAIN MOMMY!!!"
Mommy says she had a good trip though, she did a great kitty tour. My Aunt Lydia has a new kitty named Nonny who looks a little bit like Lacey and is super duper soft, so mommy got to meet her. Then she met her friend Leigh's Russian Blue kitties, two brothers, then she met her friend Mollie's kitty Roxie, and guess who else she got to meet? She met Lacey and Finney's mommy! YUP YUP YUP! Mommy met Lacey and Finney's mommy and she saw Finney run like a silly pants away from her with his fluffy toes sliding all over the place. She told me all about it. I thinks it's very funny! Silly Finney, my mommy is perfectly safe! No reason to run! hehehehe!
Well, that's it for now kitties. The good news is, life is back to normal and I'm a happy zooming boy again! It's a good life if you can get it! hehehehe! I'm looking forward to Catmus and Kringus coming back into the house, I loves Kringus! I'm also working the mommy overtime to get all our new toys up for Catmus on our etsy shop, so stand by for special discount codes starting on Black Friday kitties. Remember, stay inside, buy presents online, much easier that way! Hehehehe!

Long time no update huh? Yeah, that's how it goes sometimes, the peoples gets busy and suddenly there's no time for River cat diary updates. Hmmmm, seems fishy to me....
What was I saying? Oh yeah, so my mommy is going off for a little trip in the next few days, she's gonna miss my Gotcha Day and everything. Humph and sad faces. But here's the good thing, mommy hired a pet sitter to come take care of me cause I needs lots of attention and I don't like being alone. She was a little nervous because I'm so afraid of people. The lady came over to pick up the keys, meet me and sisfur, get a tour of the house, and guess what I did kitties? Guess!
Can't guess? You'll never guess!
I walked RIGHT up to her and sniffy sniffy sniffied her! I said hello, my name is River and you smell like a very nice lady, I will let you pet me! Isn't that bold and brave of me kitties? Oh yes, very bold! Very Brave! I made mommy very happy. She feels very good about leaving me with this lady, she also took crazy notes about us. She even wrote down that if anything happens and Simone leaves, I has to go too! I can't be without sisfur! SISFUR!!!
Anyways, mommy has promised me a big special surprise when she comes back since she's missing my Gotcha Day, little uncalled for isn't it? She should be here! But I guess a big surprise will be ok, so long as she promises NEVER EVER EVER to leave me again once she comes back!

Oh my catness kitties, madness has descended upon my quiet home, and not the MRATing madness sisfur brings to the table, real madness!
Mommy opened the door on Sept 29th to go outside and guess what happened. Guess kitties! You'll never do it! It was so shocking! She opened the door and a cat walked in. No really, just walked right in. As soon as she cracked the door a cat just WALKED into our house and sat down on the floor. She looked up at mommy and daddy, licked her lips (she must have been eating our stray cat nom noms) and meowed at them, then she started rubbing up against the walls and marking them as hers. Hey! Hey! You! Who are you? What's going on here? Mom and dad were dumbfounded, me and sisfur freaked out a little. This cat just announced it was going to stay! NO! NO STAY! WHO ARE YOU???
Well kitty had a collar and looked pretty plump and we've had two new families move in so mommy picked up kitty, told her she was pretty, and put her outside saying "go home girl, if you don't have a home you can come back here, but I think you've got one somewhere, so go home!"
Kitty didn't go home. Kitty stayed on our door step all day and all night. Mommy fed her and pet her, yeah, like she's going to leave after that mommy! You give them nom noms and show them how awesome you are and they never leave!
The next day, a teenage boy came around looking all over the place and daddy called out to him and asked if he was looking for a cat. He said he was and they showed him our little stripy girl with the white paws and bent tail, he said her name was Bell and she was their kitty. (THANK CATNESS!) He told mommy and daddy that their family had just moved in and at their old apartment Bell use to go everyday to visit this nice lady a few doors down, he thinks Bell is just looking for a new friend! Mommy and daddy were relieved, they said Bell can hang out on our doorstep as long as she wants and as often as she wants, she can ever wander into the house every once and awhile, it doesn't bother them one bit, they are just happy to know she has a home and a family that love her and a boy who will come looking for her if she gets lost and who seemed genuinely concerned. Yeah, I'm happy about that too! Boy... take Bell home! No more kitties here! I gots too many to keep track of all ready! Sheesh! Bell also seems to have an orange brother with a matching collar but he doesn't hang out here. It looks like Bell isn't going anywhere, she's outside every day waiting for mommy and daddy to open the door and talk to her, then she goes on her way. Weird cat... go home! Too... many... kitties...
I'm getting too old for this kind of excitement kitties! Sheesh. Stray cats walking right into my home and trying to steal my parents. They are awesome parents and they belong to me! NO SHARE!
...ok, share a little.

Oh my gosh kitties, I have seen the BIGGEST kitty every born, I'm sure of it. He's huge!
About two weeks ago we got some new neighbors and they have this little puppy dog living with them. Well, every day since they moved in, our nom nomers stray food bowls have been licked clean every morning. That's a little strange. Mommy was certain the doggy next door was coming over and eating all our strays noms and she was getting pretty ticked off about it. Those nom noms are for stray kitties, not puppies with homes! Turns out, it isn't a puppy doing it!!!
Last night I heard something so I ran to the window. Mommy saw me watching really intently outside so she came over to look and what did she see? The world's BIGGEST stray kitty ever! He's a big poofy gray striped kitty, he's SO BIG! He's like, twice the size of me, but really hungry looking. He's eating the whole bowl and licking it clean by himself! Mommy couldn't believe it. He looked right at me in the window and gave me a look that said "yeah, not even a little intimidated by you, you inside poofy house cat boy!" then he looked up at mommy and licked his lips and nodded to her. HE NODDED AT HER! He's so cool kitties. He's one suave outside guy! I better make sure sister doesn't see him, he's so cool she'll definitely fall for him, and I can't have that. Mommy is going to make sure she puts out more food now, she wants to fatten this guy up to his full potential. He's got the potential to be one handsome mancat, but clearly, not more handsome than me. And frankly, I think I could take him if I had to, I mean, I'm RIVER!

ZOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM down the hallway
ZOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM up the hallway
"RIVER!!! STOP DOING THAT" Screams the mommy
ZOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM down the hallway
ZOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM up the hallway
What's that??? A ribbon? A wire? Oh my catness! I must destroy it! Start the butt wiggles
Jiggle Wiggle Butt, Jiggle Wiggle Butt.... POUNCE!
I CAUGHT THEM MOMMY! I CAUGHT THE WIRE!!! NOM NOM NOM CHOMP!!!
"RIVER! Those are daddy's expensive headphones! STOP DOING THAT! Bad cat!" Snaps fingers
OH NOSE! BUSTED! Let's go headphones!
ZOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM down the hallway dragging the great big headphones behind me, trailing wildly around, smashing into walls and thunking across the floor.
"NO RIVER!! STOP!!! DON'T DO THAT!!!" Here comes the mommy, chasing me down the hallway ZOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM goes the mommy! hehehe!
Uh oh... better run for it, release the prisoner... er... headphones, and run behind the sofa. Shhhhhhhhhhhhh she'll never find me here!
"Oh River, why do you do these things you little bugger?" Mommy rubs me behind the ears while I hide behind the sofa and meow at her. She can never stay mad at me, not even for a moment, I'm her baby boy!
Such was the death of daddy's expensive headphones. Don't worry, they were old, he can get new ones. I had a lot of fun though, hope you like my little narrative, this is how it played out in my heads!

Hi there kitties!
WOWZAS! I gots tagged twice, I really better play before everyone thinks I don't want to! hehehe! My buddies Tully and Charlie both tagged me, so here's my answers!
1) Tell me your funny Christmas story.
I was adopted on November 1st (four years ago!), so my first Catmus was pretty close to when I joined my new family. The parents weren't sure about getting a tree, they were worried what I would do. They decided to though, and they decorated it and waited. For a week, nothing happened, then late one night they kept hearing clunks and they went out the check. I had knocked down every glass ball ornament I could reach and batted them around the floor. Only one broke (and I didn't get cut thank catness) but they were so annoyed at me! hehehe! They had to wake up in the middle of the night and redecorate the tree, moving all the class ornaments up REALLY high so I couldn't reach them! Then, just for good measure, I ate all the wrapping paper off of a couple presents for them! hehehe!
2) Where's your favorite hiding place when playing hide and go seek?
I like to tuck myself away where I can't be seen, climbing inside cabinets is the best, but I also like hiding under all daddy's button up shirts in the closet, anywhere I can't be seen, or think I can't be seen works for me!
3) What did you dream of being as a young kit?
A hardworking, handsome, CEO, dreamboat (TOOT TOOT!!!)
4) What's your favorite hobby?
Being a hardworking CEO of course! There's lots involved in that, but otherwise, I think I like hair dressing, mommy always needs her hair fixed, it's always messy and needs to be nomed a little and cleaned up!
5) What’s your one "bad habit" that you love and your Mom hates?
Chasing sisfur just after she's eaten! I gets her all shaken up and then sometimes she goes BARFFS all over the place cause I got her excited on a fully tummy. Mommy hates it but I think it's fun!
6) If you could go anywhere in the world where would you go?
I don't like traveling, I don't want to go anywhere. In fact, I want mommy to never go anywhere either. She's planning a trip overseas again, she's going to Poland. Who goes to Poland? She should stay home with me on the sofa! That's where I want to go! The sofa!
7) What is your guilty pleasure?
Mommy huggies. Shhhhh don't tell anyone but I REALLY love mommy huggies. I follow her around crying until she picks me up then I just hold on tight and won't let her put me down. I love mommy huggies.
8) What is your favorite make believe monster? Post a pic of this mysterious beast.
Jason from the Friday the 13th movies! Mommy says I'm like him cause I sneak up on her and daddy and they don't hear me till they turn around and there I am, not even I know how I do it! hehehe!
9) What is the one dreaded thing you have to do at home?
Get baffs. I hate baffs. I always get them. It's not fair!
10) We are going to have coed ships this year so which ship do you want to be on mine, or Zoe’s. Gris will be having a small ship (more like a dingy) for all our kits to be on.
Zachs... no Zoes... no Zachs... no Zoes... no wait... Gris... no wait... I don't know...
As for tags, I don't know whose played yet so anyone who wants to should consider themselves tagged! Love you all! hehehe!

Hi there kitties,
So, is any other kitty out there suffering because of this heat? I know I sure am! It's WAY too hot for a long haired River boy like me. You know it's been over 100 for like... 3 weeks now! No, I'm serious! I'm dying! I can't take it anymore! I spend my days flopped on the floor with all my fuzzies spread out waiting for mommy to give me ice cubes to play with and finally wake up when she puts the AC on at night to a really low temp.
Well, I guess it finally caught up on me. Last night when the AC hit a nice low cool temp, I went berserk!!! Just off the walls crazy zoomies up and down the hall way. I ran up the cat tree, I ran down the cat tree, I tore all of my toys out of the box and scattered them throughout the house, I jumped from the window curtains to the cat tree to my parents bed and woke them up a half dozen times, I chased the sisfur all over the house, I did a little happy River dance on top of my parents. I just went nuts. Crazy. Bonkers. Looney. Batty. ZOOOMIES!!!!
Mom and dad are less than pleased with me today. They say they didn't get much sleep because of me. Well.... neither did I!

Mommy is tormenting me guys, and it's real tough on a manly mancat such as myself. Last night, girlfriend came by for her nom noms. Hehehehe, she comes to the door and cries if the bowl isn't full enough, then mommy knows she's here, opens the door, and feeds her. She thinks it's crazy that girlfriend's got her so well trained and she doesn't even technically 'live' with us. Anyways, last night she showed up at the same time daddy was coming home from work, so he sat outside and played with her. I KNEW she was out there and I wanted outs, so I was freaking out, pulling at the doorknob (I'm not stupids, I knows that's how you opens the door I just can't get it to work right!) and running from door to window to look at them, finally, mommy picked me up, and opened the door.
Oh mans! I gots to see girlfriend! She sure is prettys! Mommy sat in the door way with me plunked on her lap all silly like, she had a good tight hold on me, but we just sat and watched while daddy and girlfriend played. Every once and while girlfriend would look up at me and say something, but she never hissed or even made aggressive moves. She knows I'm a nice guy! I was pretty nice too.
Sisfur wasn't so thrilled with this, she was sitting on the ottoman and every time girlfriend said something, she glared at the door. What can I say? The ladies, they loves me and wants me all to themselves! Or maybe she was worried girlfriend would come over to mommy... sisfur is VERY protective of her mommy. Either way, it was a great day! I hopes it happens again tonight, cause I really like talking with girlfriend, and I really hope one day she chooses to walk right through that open door and come inside with us, it's much nicer inside! Sisfur wouldn't like that, but she'd get over it eventually! You know how them meezers are! MRAT! hehehehe!

Who wants to see pictures of Girlfriend taken just a little while ago? I gots them right here! Also, you might notice, there's a second kitty in this album with pictures taken not that long ago (different day though, mommy's wearing different pants!) We aren't sure who he is, but we're calling him boyfriend for now cause we THINKS he's a guy, not sure. He was very friendly and he had a scabbed over boo boo behind his ear. What is up with the kitties at this place? Sheesh! We might have to take them ALL in!
Well, here they are, and you can see, both VERY friendly! Daddy took the pictures while mommy held and played with the kitties!
Girlfriend and Boyfriend!
Looking pretty good for their boo boos aren't they?
