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...

... I don't know what that means, but, either way... I'm a DDP! HOORAYS! Thanks so much kitties for all the great comments and messages and gifties you are sending me! Please though, save your zealies. Mommy feels bad cause she hasn't had the time to send messages for DDPs recently. We're so happy I was chosen, but we don't want to take your zealies away!
We're getting ready for Halloween over here, but unfortunately, my mommy gots a bit of a cold I think. Her chest hurts and she fell asleep really early last night and woke up really late today. I don't know what's up, but I slept with her the whole time. She's feel ok, but not really 100% so that's a bit of a downer, that and Halloween is her FAVORITE holiday ever and she's not feeling 100% for it, which is sad. On the up hand side though, she hasn't put many silly hats on us this weekend as a result! hehehe!
Oh yeah, and also, this morning when she FINALLY got up and opened the door, guess who was there? GIRLFRIEND! hehehe! She said "hello nice lady who feeds me" and I came running down the hallway. Mommy had to quickly close the door cause I was trying to make a break for it to see girlfriend! Guess I'll just have to tell mommy how much I want to get outside today with as many baby squeaks as I can muster. I'm a crazy good baby squeaker as I told you all in my last post. Mom thinks it's because I live with a very talkative meezer, I had to up the anty if I wanted attention! hehehe!
Again, thank you so much kitties! Catster is the bestest and so are all my friends!

Mommy says I'm spoiled. This is apparently a growing problem between the two of us, but the good news is at least she's taking responsibility for spoiling me in the first place. See, somewhere along the way she taught me (probably by accident) that if I talk to her with my little baby and jump down the hallway in front of her with my swishy walk, I get cat treats! What did she think would happen? I NEVER shut up now! I'm constantly talking and asking for treats. It's getting a little crazy! You can't walk down the hallway without a River cat helping you out by escorting you with baby noises! Mommy says I'm going to be come as chunky as my sister if I keep this up. I don't think that's fair, I'm still trim and slim, I just REALLY like a good cat treat, especially the cheesy flavored ones! What do you think kitties? Whose right? I think I am, I'm not spoiled, I'm delightful, and it is a privilege to give me kitty treats! Plus, I also give great hugs if you pick me up while I'm begging!

Well, I've been pondering this for a little while, and I just don't know a better way to say thank you to everyone on this wonderful community. You guys all came together when Ingen was missing and while my friend Tigger was sick. You guys are the best. Now Tigger is back home with his family and Ingen is safe with a friend while transportation can be arranged (and holy cows to how much you've all give to help get her home!) I wanted to say thanks to every single one of you, but I couldn't think of a really good way to do that. So this is what I'm going to do...
HAPPY RIVER DANCES FOR ALL OF YOU!!! HOORAYS!!!
I hope that can suffice, I don't think I can possibly get a thank you to every kitty out there who purred or helped out, every little bit was important.
I also did do one other little thing though, while we are slowly putting in some Halloween sales over at my shop, I convinced mommy that all catsters deserve a special code, so here it is... if you want a Happy River Dances Catnip toy just pop on over to my shop and use the special code INGEN and that will get you 20% off as my special thanks!
Happy River Dances Catnip Company
If you want the Halloween stuff you gots to scroll down a little, I had to renew some stuff today and it got bumped down!
Oh yes... and one more very important thing. 7 Months ago a really special kitty friend of mine left catster and I was really sad about it. I sent her some of my toys and a picture of me and sisfur and we got a very nice letter back from her with some pictures. We just found out that she's had our pictures hanging over her daddy's desk this whole time. The good news is this super sweet girl and her fantastic daddy came back to catster! You should all go visit her! Send her a message, send her a comment, ask to be her friend, she's the sweetest girl you'll ever meet! Her name is Munchkin
Go on, go visit her! Don't be shy, she's a great friend. I don't know how much time she has to be on catster, but you know what kitties, you can never have too many loving friends in your community, that's what I says!
HAPPY RIVER DANCES!!!

Can you believe that sisfur of mine? She wrote a diary entry complaining about our vet trip but forgot to update all of you about how it went! You guys might have been worried we gots bad news or something! Sheesh! Sisfurs!
Well, I think the reason she doesn't want to tell you guys is cause the vet tech told her she was F-A-T! Yup! We all knew THAT was coming. The tech was pretty tough on mommy about it too, which I thought was uncalled for. It isn't mommy's fault that sisfur has some serious stress issues and it isn't sisfurs fault either. They are both trying to keep her around a healthy weight but it's hard. The vet was much more understanding and offered mommy some new advice she got from a conference she had just attended. We like the vet more! Our vet is a nice lady!
Other than sisfur being fat, it all went pretty well. It was a little traumatics but in the end, it was all ok. We got our rabies shots updated (OUCHIE!) and checked out. All the ladies told me I was super duper handsome and said that my parents take EXCELLENT care of me! Sure do! My coat looked so great, they all just wanted hugs! I'm a popular guy.
I've put on a little weight, but not enough to be a problem. I bounce around a little with my weight, depends how zoomies I feel every month I guess! Otherwise, everything else is going great! My teethies are still clean too so that's good, I didn't want to have to do that again! Mommy was very proud of me! She said "Take THAT FIV again!" Darn straight! 3 years with mommy and daddy, all good!
So, there you have it, we are in excellent health! I just wanted to update all of you so no one thought we were hiding some dark scary secret about our health. Now, off to lay in the sun! I heard a rumor that mommy has a really long documentary she wants to watch tonight, Simone and I are all ready picking out our spots on the sofa to be with her, she NEVER sits still for long, so we HAVE to take advantage of this!

Ok kitties, there are two things to discuss here. How you DO and how you DON'T celebrate National Meow Like a Pirate Day. I think mommy has to review this a little...
DO... send your friends flags on catster, oh and check out the HQ announcement for the free flags... that's totally me! Thanks for telling me Monida!
DON'T... Give the River Cat a bath. I'm serious mommy, pirates don't need baths. I don't ever recall Long John Silver taking a bath so WHY does Long John River Cat have to take a bath? Yeah kitties, you guessed it, last night my parents boarded my ship and took me prisoner, then they tortured me by dunking me in the bathtub and rubbing me with soaps, I'm the sweetest smelling pirate on the seas today and I hates it, even if I do looks might handsome as a result. Still NOT cool.
Oh yes, and one more DO... TALK LIKE A PIRATE! Avast me hearties, we sail tonight with the tides for booty and freedom on the open seas! We bes the fiercest pirates ever to sail the seven seas indeeds! Shiver me timbers! Fifteen cats on a dead man's chest, yo ho ho was a bottle of catnip rum!
Everyone enjoy your talk like a pirate day and stay clear of bathtubs full of water. I only wants the saltwater in my veins kitties!

That's right kitties, this year I'm going for the pirate look in honor of talk like a pirate day! I didn't last year, talk about missing out. I'm not sure if my page is finalized but it was very late and mommy finally found something that would work so we're sticking with it for now! hehehe! I'm going to keep the music though!
This year for Talk like a Pirate day you can all call me Long John River Cat after Long John Silver from Treasure Island! Want to know why? His nick name was barbeque and I LOVES barbeque! No really... it was and I do! Treasure Island was mommy's favorite book growing up and still is. She has so many copies, people keep giving her them. Long John was her favorite character (actually Israel Hands was her FAVORITE character, he's the coxswain AND there was a real pirate named Israel Hands who sailed for Blackbeard! fun facts!) But Long John Silver was a close second! She's letting me be that super clever one legged devil for talk like a pirate day! ARGH!!! GET ME SOME BARBEQUES!!!
