Today is a furry spawsial day fur my meowmy!
She got presents, and a big cake! Lots of cards and phone calls, too.
It seems that a long time ago when my Grammy was getting ready for her own spawsial day of birth remembrance, she had to put it on hold to deal with the biggest bestest birthday present she ever had! Meowmy!
That's right folks, Meowmy and Grammy shared their birthdays for 51 years! It sure was a strange thing for Meowmy not to be able to call up her own mom on the first birthday after grammy went to heaven. She is OK and used to it now, it has been quite a few years ago...
So they had this big raspberry and cream cake...and shucks, I didn't even get to share any morsel of it!BOOO! HISS!
Well, I know that I shall get something tastey on my plate later! It never fails! MOL!
Meowmy and pawppy are going out later...not to a real catabration of this day, but to a church dinner, being put on just for fun. They never miss those occasions, so tonight is no different! Except that I can't go along... :(
Well, Happy Birthday Meowmy!

(This is Minko's diary...)
Meowmy has a big antique cuckoo clock. It cuckoos evfurry 1/2 hour.
She has 'trained' us not to bother it...except Pipo still will jump up near it when Mr Cuckoo bird comes out...but that bird is too fast for him and he never has caught it, yet!
Today I was still having extra energy to be a zoomer kitty and also being cuckoo, myself. Who needs one in a clock when you can be a live one...and not needing to wait for the right time to be cuckoo! MOL!
I had some nip...could that be the reason?...and chased the laser, which led to a tumble romp with Pipo...and we had a make-believe cat fight. It is how we practice staying pouncy and fit. We may need to use those self defense skills some day!
Pawppy came home from work and brought in some dry cleaning. On hangers in very long bags. In my cuckoo-ness, I couldn't resist...so I went inbetween the bag and the counter area ...and jumped an ambush on Pipo when he walked by! Meowmy thought it was so funny, cause that bag was clear, Pipo had no problem knowing I was there...but he still was furry surpawsed when he got jumped on.
Then meowmy was in the bathroom, getting ready for some change of clothes, as she was going outside, to do yard chores...so I jumped in the bathtub, behind the shower curtain...snooped around there for a bit, then out came my cuckoo face, under that curtain. The bottom of it looked like a veil on my head! MOL! (I think I like that crinkly and rustling sound it makes when I bump up against it.)
And then I pounced on Pipo again as he came to investigate who meowmy was giggling at.
Later, That silly fly came back to pester me and drive me to higher levels of being cuckoo...MOL!
It defies getting caught! I shall have to hone my fly catching skills!
It sure is fun to be cuckoo!

OMC! Meowmy was gone fur a while and I did miss her. So, since her return, I have been all over her, using her feet as scratching places, bumping up under her arms while she is NOT paying me any attention cause she is using the computer...and getting into her lap at any op-purr-tuna-ty!
I have been really cuckoo and zoomie thoughts race through mu mind a lot. I think when meowmy is not here I languish and when she returns my batteries are fully charged!
We have had a lot of nice warm sunny weather, lately. So of course that meakes for great sleeping in sunpuddles.
And I keep recharging those batteries I have with power sun naps!
I about put holes in the big lamp that lights up the desk area and living room, because of one little fly...(Flies always seem to emerge from who knows where on sunny days...),but after I knocked it down, Pipo came and grabbed it into his mouth...but then he let it go because it was a buzzing in there! MOL! Meowmy was laughing a lot, I don't know if it was at me or at Pipo!
Sunny days also mean that the risk of being attacked by the flash demon is very high!
And it happened...once again, that lady who calls herself meowmy, got out that flashing rectangle, that she points at me and then invariably it goes click-flash! Over and over!
If that wasn't bad enough, she put clothes on me! ACK! Something about getting ready for the upcoming holidays..OMC! I wish she would learn how to use photoshop...or get a job so that she has no time for that kind of stuff!
But then if she went to work outside the house efurry day, I would see less and less of her...A kitty just can't win!
Well, that big attack was yesterday, and today it was Pipo's turn...hee-hee.
So I paid meowmy back, by getting into the props all over the table...and I even jumped into the flash demon range...bad move! She put a collar on me and made me 'sit' for some more flashes. I thought that if it was sunny that flash thing would not go off...but meowmy said that flash I am seeing in the sun is called 'fill-in'. Whatevfur, meowmy! I don't like having to be in pictures!
And when she was almost done and trying to make me 'au naturel' once again, I gave her a feel of my teeth and claws! OMC! Wonder when she will try that flash demon stuff again!?!
Today is Remembrance Day, so meowmy was wearing a poppy, all day. Poppies are the traditional flower of remembrance, made famous, after the poem about Flanders Fields.
Thanks to all veterans, and to all who gave of themselves for our freedom. We should never take that freedom too lightly, It is very precious, if only for the lives lost trying to attain and maintain it.
(PS: With the shorter and darker days upon us...I know that that flash thing will be put away much sooner, if it comes out of hiding!)
For the record:

Oh, I heard the back door opening and all kinds of noise in the kitchen...so I went to hide behind the couch...my furvorite hidey hole!
And then that noisy goofy dog-guy came in!
That is meowmy! Yeah, she is back!
I decided it was safe to come out of hiding and tried to investigate the bags and stuff, but since her trip was short, and only she and dog-guy went, there wasn't a lot.
So I hopped in my box full of nice crinkly wrapping paper and took a nice nap. Full of sweet dreams, cause I could truly relax, knowing that meowmy was safe at home again.
At supper, she got out the laser toy, and I had heaps of fun, chasing it all over the place!
Now I am back in sleep mode!
PS: It appears that meowmy has missed some goings on during the time she was away...there are lots of prezzies on Pipo's page...And I see some on mine, too.
We will try to remind her to say official thanks when her routine gets back to regular! Hee-hee...is it ever?
Meanwhile, general thanks and conCATs to all and any kitties who as our pals may have been a bit neglected by meowmy during her absence!
She was a tad frustrated! She could see all the things on a borrowed 'puter, but not make responses...let alone send out messages!
So she wrote them down, and will try to get to them later...

Well, Its late, so meowmy will just 'reprint the same entry here as for my brofur:
If you pals of ours don't hear from us in the next few days, that will be cause meowmy is leaving town for a few days. To visit family in Canada.
We will be taken care of by pawppy, who is staying here.
Hope that we don't miss anything important!
But we will try to catch up when she gets back!

A couple of days ago, I pawed here about the bad weather. Well yesterday it was still very windy and rough, winds about 40-50 mph @ times. Whenever the windows rattled too loud, we would look up and the dog-guy would growl.
But there was lots of sun to make those warm patches on our condo...so I spent a lot of time there. AHHH!
(Today the sun is gone, it is cold, damp and dull...)
I stopped trying to eat the roses....but maybe I will have a sample of any other blooms that may decide to show up in a vase...
Pawppy saw a big huge cat walking around, downtown. It seemed like it wasn't too scary, because people were waving at it! And he waved back! Wow!
Well, we live near Battle Creek, and this is the home of Tony The Tiger! Isn't that GRRREAT!?! MOL!
I am rather clumsy sometimes. Meowmy was in her recliner, and I wanted to keep her lap warm...so I tried without success several times to get ion the armrest...but each time I missed my aim, and slid back to the floor. Meowmy was giggling, and she didn't even try to help me get in her lap! The nerve! So I sat there and stewed fur a while, and then I had a bright moment!
I jumped straight up and landed right in the middle of the headrest part of the recliner. No Problem! OMC! Why can't I jump up on to the arm rest, but I can land squarely on the headrest with no trouble at all?! It is so much higher. Whatevfur!
I am also a bit skittish. Esp after all the racket that was outside the past few days.
I was on the CPU, having a battery recharge...by its nice warmth. Pawppy came and opened the cabinet...for his own reasons, I guess...That meant that evfurry time I would move that cover banged. So at one point I was getting more comfy, meowmy put out her hand to pet me...and I nearly had a hissy fit. Too much noise and movements all at the same time!
My tail was fluffed up, and even my kitty hackles were standing up. Meowmy, you scared me! It isn't even Halloween, yet! But I did feel a bit sheepish when I realized I was depriving myself of a nice scratching under my chin, and a good pet of my furs. But I did glare at meowmy to be more careful in how and when she approaches me...MOL!
Purrs to all!

Well, meowmy is back to 'normal' after a brief hiatus of bedrest post laser treatments for those very gross veins...all is fine...and she should not have much more to worry about being gross. Now Me...I was gross!
Meowmy received some roses.
So in the vase they went, and in the kitchen sink...cause she knows that we kitties and mostly me...MOL...are herbivores..when there are plants around to practice that on!
Well, I looked and saw that the booby traps were not there...'what were you thinking, meowmy?' So Up I jumped and had a nice tasty meal of rose leaves and petals...
Meowmy came into the dining room...and sure enough...big puddle of YUCK! Complete with disposed of and rejected green leaves. She knew it was me, cause I had slobber from my YUCK on my chin...When she looked at the flowers, she had to giggle...there were chew marks and holes in so many of the leaves...and some of them had been stripped off! I only do complete jobs!
Of course since I am not a rabbit, well soon I was green about the gills...another silly thing to say, kitties do not have gills! Just say that I woofed my cookies, meowmy! Oh...I guess that is silly fur kitties, too...I mew, not woof, and I know that those roses were NOT cookies! MOL!
OK, then lets be gross...and say it like it is...I Barfed! Yuck! You know? I learned that roses look better than they taste, and that I was not meant to be rosy or green with their essences!
Through all the stormy weather, today...I just had a good sleep on the CPU. It is nice and warm again, after almost a week of not being turned on...first because meowmy could not use it while on bedrest, and second, cause Pawppy had it dysfunctional fur a while, to help him fix his own...well now all the parts are back where they belong.
So I felt that this bad weather was not going to be the cause of me not having a warm napping place! And I got my way! Yeah! We did not have to go into our dungeon!
Most of the storm passed by our den...thankfully!

Meowmy saw me sunning myself yesterday.
And in a nice place for pics...so 'ding!' goes that little silver box, and 'zing!' goes that window in the front of it...and click...
And meowmy seemed happy. And so was I when she stopped! Phew! No clothes this session...funnily enough, no props either.
Well then I heard some unlikely words coming from the computer desk area...and Meowmy was there...and my pics were up on the monitor...and meowmy was NOT happy! Why? I didn't do anything naughty did I?
Well what it was, the camera took some very nice pictures...and meowmy though some were going to be the best ever...BUT...there was some yucky guck in the corner of one of my eyes! Meowmy was wondering if I had properly washed my face when I got ready for my day! Or was it just a slip up in my grooming technique. Now she has been watching me all day to make sure I don't have an eye infection...I do not!
I guess that means that there won't be any more spontaneous close up pictures anymore...MOL!
Meowmy will be pulling back from Catster/Dogster starting the middle of next week. She has what she terms 'very gross veins', and needs some laser treatments...which means she will be off her feet for a few days. And the 'puter is on a desk...not available to those who have to be flat!
She surely will be having withdrawal symptoms! But hey, we will be there to warm her up, as she lies on the cot in the livingroom with her legs on pillows...and we will stay on her and make sure that she obeys orders!
Then in a few days after that, meowmy will be out of town for a few days. Computerless again! OMC! There will be SO much CATching up to do!
We are having fun with pawing all the vote buttons for the WCC! There are some truly great pics there!

Meowmy hasn't even properly thanked the first lot of furs from last week's one!
Meowmy is going to be busy...I can accurately prophesy that!
Today is also a holiday...not just Columbus Day...
But Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!
Happy Canadian Thanksgiving
Purrs, Hugs, Headbonks, and Miaows!
