Ok kitties, I have figured it out. I know how to become the alpha kitty. I've been studying sister and how she remained the alpha for so long, and I've got it. I mentioned in my last diary that whoever controls the mommy controls the kitties, and I've got it down to an art form now. I have stepped up my River presence around the mommy 100%
Mommy stays awake late at night, much later than daddy, working on her writings when the world is quiet. She has gotten very little work done recently. Want to know why? Her boyfriend won't leave her alone. Whose her boyfriend you might ask? ME! I've melted her heart! I'm a complete snuggle buddy suddenly. I'm always lying across her arms, her lap, anywhere. Showing off that belly fuzzy she loves so much, begging for chin pets and ear rubs. When she's typing, I jump up next to her and sit and watch, every few minutes, I RAM my little head into hers, full force. HEAD BONKS OF LOVIES MOMMY!!! She doesn't know what to do with me! She's so crazy about how cutes I am she can't yell at me, but she's not getting anywhere near the amount of work done she should.
Control the mommy... control the Alpha! Look out sisfur... I'm coming for you!

Hi ho everybody!
That's my Kermit the frog impression, you like it? hehehe! Well, it's been a long time since I've written in my diary, you'd think I was keeping my little squeaks quiet, but that's so far from the truth, I've never been squeakier!
Now, here's the update on our home. I want to be the Alpha! Ever since we were brought home, sister has been the Alpha. She's got Mrat-attiude to spare and she's not afraid to put me in my place. She's mommy's girl and we all know that mommy rules this house, so therefore, Moe Moe rules the kitties. For 3 years, I've been a good beta kitty, but I've decided I've had enough, I want to be Alpha! Really, these past 3 years I've just been too lazy to become alpha, I'm a pretty laid back crazy guy, I didn't need to be Alpha. I'm a good brother, sister wants to eat first, she can eat first. I don't want to steal anything from her, she's my bestest sister in the whole wides world. Well, no more pretty meezer lady, River Cat is in the house! I've stepped up my Alpha presence in every way. At night, I sleep on the pillow with mommy. At snack time, I wolf down my treats and force sister away from hers, sometimes I even leave my pile unattended to try to steal sisters. At dinner time, I eat first. And so on and so on. Mommy can't figure out why I've suddenly decided to become the Alpha. Last night she and daddy were woken up a half dozen times by us wrestling on the bed between them, it's my bed now sister! I'm not being mean or anything, just pushy! She thinks we're going through a re-balancing act in this house, but she's warned me I'm going to lose, sister won't give up her title easily and I don't have the stamina to out feisty her! I think I can give her a good run for her moneys though! Just because I'm a really good big brother and I loves my sister like crazy, doesn't mean I can't also be the alpha right?
Oh, and mommy finally updated our pages for Valentines day, but she doesn't like how the font is hard to read on mine. Anybody got the code to change the font back to white? We had it, but we lost it and mommy says she doesn't have time to search for a new one. Sheesh mommy, what could be more important than making my page look pawsome?

First off, to everyone who has mailed us cards and presents, we love you all so much. You are all the bestest. Mommy mailed out half our cards and then ran out of stamps, we ordered more but who knows when they will arrive, so we might no MAIL them until after Catmus. Sad River faces about that one, please know it wasn't on purpose. There's a big pile sitting on our table mommy wants to mail out.
Second, sorry we haven't been around much. We won't burden you with details but suffice to say, there's been some stuff going on. I'm just doing my best to be the best River I can and keep mommy positive. The other day I tried to climb the tree again and make mommy smile as Kringus, but I guess that wasn't what she wanted! hehehe!
Third, and most important, a very happy holiday season to everyone no matter what they celebrate or how they do. We hope you all have a great end of the year and a happy start of the new year. This year, my parents aren't doing presents so that does make it slightly less fun to play under the tree. Luckily other people keep mailing them presents so I still have boxes! There's this HUGE brown box next to the tree from my grandpa... I KNOW there is catnip in it! I can SMELLS it! I wants it SO badly! Mommy keeps promising me that I'm getting a full stocking this year, no matter what. A few packages have arrived, I think one came from Tigger's daddy's etsy shop... I love those toys! I think I should get it now. I really hope mommy finds the time to go get my Catmus presents. She's been so busy. I mean, I loves everything I've got, but I just LOVE toys! hehehe! I've also been promised all the left over Catmus themed toys that don't sell in mommy's etsy shop. I've got my eye on those candy canes! Hehehehe, it's good to be the CEO!
Anyways, Merry Catmus to everyone, big and small, human and fuzzy, rich and poor. Merry Catmus, Happy Chanukah, Happy Boxing Day, Happy New Year, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy everything! I'm sure I'm missing some holidays, there are just so many at the end of the year / start of the new year! The important thing is HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL! Now, I'm going to go help mommy clean out my toy basket for donations to the shelter kitties, and pack up donations for the SPCA thrift shop. I'm a very lucky guy, and I never forget how lucky I am to have my family and my home, I always want the shelter kitties to know I'm with them in spirit. I hope every kitty finds a home for the holidays, but since that isn't possible, I hope I can make the world a little bit brighter for as many of them as possible. Love you all kitties, and merry Catmus to all!

Well, last year at Catmus time I shared with you all the comic about Kringus. Well, for three years Catmus tress have gone up, and I've never actually tried to BECOME Kringus, but this year was one year too many!
My daddy had minor surgery on Monday and he's on the sofa recovering, so naturally, I'm hanging out with him. Today while mommy and daddy were out there having lunch, I got up, and started investigating this tree, mommy wasn't too worried, like I said, I'm a good boy around Catmus trees. Then, out of nowhere, the tree starts to shake. Daddy thought I was trying to drink out of the tree base, but mommy knew better! She jumped to her feet and held the tree steady, there I was, halfway up the tree and poking out through the branches and ornaments! I AM KRINGUS!!!
(Click through a few of them to learn about Kringus!)
Well, finally mommy got me to come down from the tree, I'm a big boy after all, she couldn't just reach in and pull me out. I thought I was so clever, but turns out, mommy and daddy got the last laugh. Did you know Catmus trees have this icky sap all over them? It's so gross! When you climb them... it gets on your paws. My feets are all sappy. I spent the next hour walking around shaking every foot after it touched the ground. I've been cleaning my toes all afternoon, it's no good, I'm all sappy! Mommy keeps laughing at me. She says my toes smell like Christmas now... I don't want my toes to smell like Christmas. I'm never going to be Kringus again. Lesson learned.

So, do any of you have weird mommies that insist on changing their hair color too? See... my mommy has brown hair. I likes her brown hair. I don't know what's wrong with brown hair. I always thought it was fine just as it was, but for some reason, every few months, mommy goes in and changes her hair to red with strawberry blond highlights. I mean, I guess this looks pretty good too. I pretty much like my mommy no matter what she does, even if I don't understand it, but my complaint is that when she comes home from doing this her hair is SUPER DUPER STINKY for the next few days from the color and I has to groom her something fierce. EVERY time she sits down on the couch, I jump up behind her and grab a hold of her head so I can groom her. At night, I sleep on her pillow, and groom her. She tells me to stop doing that, she says that eating the color can't be good for me, but I just GOTS to get rid of that stinky smell! I do my best. She got her hair colored yesterday morning, and I haven't left her alone all day. Stinky, stinky, stinky! BLEH!

Well, let me tell you, recently, I have been one helpful squeaker boy! First off, we had Turkey Day! I love Turkey Day! I Love Turkey!!! I helped mommy cook and then I helped my parents eat all the delicious nom noms! They only fly home to be with the rest of the family every other year or so cause they live on the other coast line, I like the years they stay with me and it's just the 4 of us for Thanksgiving, me, sisfur, mommy, and daddy! That's perfect in my book! Oh yes... and the delicious Turkey! *licks chops happily*
Then, the next day, mommy put up Christmas decorations. CATMUS??? IS THIS THE HOLIDAY WE GET THE TREE??? I LOVE THE INSIDE TREE!!! I love the jingle bells on the door, I love the strings of lights on the windows, I love the little nightlight that flickers like a candle, it's so fun to watch! I LOVE CATMUS!!! So much to get into! So much trouble to cause! I guess I have to be a good boy so I can get presents, but still... I like trouble almost as much as I love Catmus. last year for Catmus, I got my GIANT cat tree, I wonder what I'll get this year? I think I've been even better this year, so I should probably get 2 giant cat trees! What do you think?
Oh yeah, one more thing, today is Cyber Monday, so it's the last day to use our coupon codes in my etsy shop kitties! We want all kitties to get catnips if they can, no one should be without catnip toys, and all your purchases this weekend are going to helping fund the donation to the rescue feral colony at our local Animal Sanctuary Zoo. Last time mommy brought in toy donations the bunny foot kickers were given to bobcats and a baby mountain lion! I wonder who will share with the feral cats this year... maybe the tigers! hehehe! So remember the specials are MOEMOETOES for 20% off your total order, the catnip catmus mousies are on sale for 3$ or 2 for 5$ if you contact me ahead of time for a special listing, and finally if you plant to spend more than 25$ and our my friend on Catster or facebook, contact me for a special free shipping code! hehehe! Hope you all enjoy the holidays and I hope the funds go to helping make LOTS of toys for the zoo kitties! Mommy loves the feral cat exhibit, those are some lucky feral kitties!

I wanted to take a moment out of my day to stop and ask each of you to have a moment of silence for one of my best friends on Catster who went to the bridge this morning. Tigger from the family of Blizzard, Kringle, and Panda. His daddy came home this morning and found Tigger had left for the bridge by himself. Tigger was Felv positive and defied the odds by living a wonderful rich beautiful life. His time on this world was too short and he became very sick with cancer not that long ago. His daddy and all his friends knew his time was limited, but he lived a wonderful life. You could not have a better daddy than Tigger's daddy. It is so apparent how much Tigger was loved in his family, how much his daddy cared. He is leaving behind so many friends and family members who will mourn his loss deeply. Please take a moment to visit his page and leave your regards for him, Tigger was a better cat than so many, he was too good of a cat to live amongst us and was called home to the bridge to live amongst the angels. He was my inspiration and my hero for how he lived his life kitties. I will miss him so very much and today I ask you all to purr for his daddy, his family, and his friends who are hurting after this loss. Tigger, today the rainbow bridge is a more beautiful wonderful place because you are there and I know a kitty as wonderful as you is all ready watching over all of us, just waiting until you and your whole family are together again. I love you buddy and I miss you.

I want to thank you from the bottom of my little River heart for all the wonderful gifts, pictures, messages, and love you all gave me on my Gotcha Day / Birthday. I love you all so very much, I know it took about 2 weeks for mommy to FINALLY write this message for me, she's been busy so I tries to forgive her. You are all the best friends a mancat could ask for and I hope to have many, many, many more special days to share with all of you. Thank you so very much.
Lots of Love,
P.S. We're working on getting all our Christmas and winter toys made for our etsy shop. Catster kitties and facebook followers are all going to get a super duper special code for the black Friday weekend as my way of saying GREAT BIG THANK YOUS to all of you! You are all the best!
Now... off to zoomie zoomie zoomie! Sentimental time over, crazy time begins... NOW!

Hello kitties everywhere and welcome to the bestest day of the whole wide year! That's right, today is my Gotcha Day! Three years ago my mommy and daddy went to Happy Tails in search of the perfect kitty. I jumped in mommy's lap first and she thought I was just the cutest, but she really wanted a girl kitty AND she was concerned about my FIV. I KNEW I had to go home with these people though, I just KNEW it, so I went to daddy. No kitty wanted to be with daddy, they were all afraid of him for some reason. He sat down in this chair all sads and dejecteds and I saw my chance! I crawled right over to him and into his lap where I promptly fell asleep! SUCKERS! Mommy COULDN'T pass on me when she saw that! They decided to try, even though I was "sick", and they are so glad they did every day of every year! I'm the bestest thing that ever happened to them! (don't tell Simone that!)
Thank you kitties for everyone who stopped by and sent me presents, or notes, or pictures, or anythings. You are all the greatest and it means the world to me that I has such great friends to help me celebrate the best day in the history of the world, the day I got gotted!
...oh yeah, it's also my birthday too! Guess I need double prizes right? MOMMY...
