Christmas Kitten...and Love

December 18th 2010 11:31 am

Folks and furs, meowmy read this heart wrenching poem somewhere else, but thought she wanted others to read it too...get out you hankies & tissues. This is so true, and why no one should be allowed to give pets as gifts, esp to young children, at Christmastime or other gift giving occasions.


Christmas Kitten

I once was a cuddly kitten
But now I am a stray
'Cause when I was no longer fun
They sent me on my way
They've kept their big watchdog
As he can bark and growl
But I could fly at strangers
If I caught them on the prowl
I slink around their garbage can
I mew outside their door
But it's clear from their behavior
They don't want me anymore
Now I'm cold and hungry
And getting very thin
What have I done to hurt them
Why wont they let me in
I crouch in sheds and boxes
In my bedraggle fur
So shivery and dejected
I cannot even purr
They have another kitten
Their children's whole delight
But probably next Christmas
It will share my wretched plight.

So now that you are in the throes of sniffling...dab your tears away, and read these cute and rather wise words, out of the mouths of babes, so to speak:

Can you say "I love you" any better?
What Love means to a 4 - 8 year old . . Slow down for three minutes to read this. It is so worth it.

Touching words from the mouth of babe

A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds, 'What does love mean?' The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined. See what you think:

'Love is what makes you smile when you're tired.'
Terri - age 4

'Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK.'
Danny - age 7

'Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when you get tired of kissing, you still want to be together and you talk more.
My Mommy and Daddy are like that. They look gross when they kiss'
Emily - age 8

'Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.'
Bobby - age 7 (Wow!)

'If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend who you hate,'
Nikka - age 6
(we need a few million more Nikka's on this planet)

'Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it everyday..'
Noelle - age 7

'Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends even after they know each other so well.'
Tommy - age 6

'During my piano recital, I was on a stage and I was scared. I looked at all the people watching me and saw my daddy waving and smiling. He was the only one doing that. I wasn't scared anymore.'
Cindy - age 8

'My mommy loves me more than anybody.You don't see anyone else kissing me to sleep at night.'
Clare - age 6

'Love is when Mommy gives Daddy the best piece of chicken.'
Elaine-age 5

'Love is when Mommy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford.'
Chris - age 7

'Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day.'
Mary Ann - age 4

'I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes and has to go out and buy new ones.'
Lauren - age 4

'When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you.' (what an image)
Karen - age 7

'Love is when Mommy sees Daddy on the toilet and she doesn't think it's gross.'
Mark - age 6

'You really shouldn't say 'I love you' unless you mean it. But if you mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget.'
Jessica - age 8

And the final one -- Author and lecturer Leo Buscaglia once talked about a contest he was asked to judge.
The purpose of the contest was to find the most caring child
The winner was a four year old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife.

Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman's yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there.

When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy said,

'Nothing, I just helped him cry'


When there is nothing left but God, that is when you find out that God is all you need. Take 60 seconds and give this a shot! All you do is simply say the following small prayer for the person who sent you this.

"Heavenly Father, please bless all my friends in whatever it is that You know they may be needing this day! And may their life be full of Your peace, prosperity and power as he/she seeks to have a closer relationship with You Amen."

The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the most credentials, the most money, or the most awards. They simply are the ones who care the most.

---
So now that your spirits are once again uplifted, go and have a nice weekend!
Oh, and I love you!

Purrs!

 

ZZZT-ZAP!

My meowmy can be dangerous to be around!
She came in from taking dog-guy fur his daily stroll.
Removed lots of garments...and walked over to me who was sitting on the nice and warm CPU...I stretched out to get my chin scritched and ZAP! I got a shock on the end of my snoot!So I jumped off the CPU and ran away as fast as I could...even before meowmy could apologize about the static discharge on my snoot...
But eventually I came back, and I forgave meowmy, and got my cuddles and scritches.
Be carefur of your peeps who may carry dangerous, unseen weapons on their personal appendages!
Purrs!

 

Milestones!

OMC! Meowmy has just seen the little birthday cake that signifies that I have been on Catster for one year, plus one week! How time flies! So much has happened since she started 'showing us off'!
But we and she love being here, and there is so much fun stuff to do. Pipo has been here a day longer than me...but that's OK cause he is a few days older than me!
We both have our meowdays in the week after Christmas! We will be 6.
Wow! Meowmy can hardly believe that!
Seems so fresh in her memory of us being such little teeny fluff balls! And I was such a dirty stinky little runt. Not sick, really, but just very neglected. Now while I am not very big, I sure look a lot more like a real kitty than that first day or two at meowmy's place...even the vet was impressed how I thrived, cause he thought I would not. Meowmy has lots of baby pics of me, but none of that day she took me out of my birth house...
Birthday; this meant that there was yet another excuse fur meowmy to have a picture session with us. I did pretty well, until I tried to eat some of the streamers on the birthday horns...and then I started retching on the picture taking set up! MOL! Just goes to show you meowmy, that I don't like these sessions...but after I was cleaned up, and watched more carefur-ly so that I would not chew that stuff again, she took about a gazillion more pics! But you all will just have to wait until Christmas is done, before I let meowmy show them too you! MOL!

We meanwhile are getting more ready fur Christmas.
Cards, etc...
Pipo & I got a pawresent from Simone and River...one of their famouse catnip pillows.
Thanks so much!

I attacked the envelope that was holding the pillow, and nearly had it open before meowmy realized what I was doing! Then I tried to climb into the empty envelope, while Pipo had a go at the pillow.
I truly am a 'nip' fiend!
I wonder what I shall find in my stocking fur Christmas, and in my meowday pawresent?

Purrs!

 

Blizzard! BRRR!

This morning the temp was above freezing at 34F.
Then it started to blow and snow..and the temp is now 17F.
The stuff of blizzards!
Meowmy even had to shut the doggy door, the wind was trying to come in the house.
There isn't that much snow, but with the wind, it is furry hard to see anything!

Here is a haiku...a special type of poetry, Which meowmy learned to do from a doggy pal, Zaidie...some of you furs may know him.

Wind is blowing hard,
And the snow is drifting, too,
A winter blizzard!


Meowmy wrote another one about a prettier snow event...

Snow fell through the night,
Covered all with its blanket,
Soft, fluffy and white.

So, there you have it...being housebound is the stuff that creativity comes from! If there was no storm, there would be no poem!

Meowmy hopes that the weather will not be like this when our unfurbros come home from college for the holidays...but if it stays cold, it fur sure will be a white Catmas!Then we can make these: ☃ with all of the ❆ that is around!

Purrs!
Stay warm & cozy!

 

Double-Doubled Dipping!

OMC! Meowmy nearly fell off her chair this morning!
Not only was Pipo a DDP, (Concats to him from me, by the way!), I was also a DDP, for the second day in a row! Wow! (Meowmy didn't think that that would even ever be possible with all the kitties who are on Catster!)

Did you read her complaints yesterday about being busy...well, today has been doubly busy! MOL!!
Poor, poor Freckles, our doggy brofur! He is feeling neglected! (Not!)

We got treats in the form of some cheese, some yogurt and some sour cream.YUM! And lots of playtime, and cuddles!

Meowmy was putting laundry away, so I came to help, and saw a big box. There had been pears in there, but now it was empty. So I pushed it open, and climbed right in, making myself a new nest! Peek-a-boo, too!
Later after I got bored with that, I helped meowmy to wrap up a gift that had to go in the mail...I tried to chew the corners of the package, so that the recipient, who is a cat lover, would see my greeting, too. She misses having cats, anymore, but at age 87, she does not want to have any live ones...so she has quite the collection of real looking toy ones! Some of which she got from meowmy.

Then the fun started for real!
Meowmy opened up all the new baubles that were to go on the 2 table trees which we have here.
She had them all sorted according to color and texture...and then she went looking for the hooks. NONE! She dug high and low, and was sure that she had seen them earlier. Eventually she gave up, put all those pretty balls in that pear box and went off to do other things!
The trees will have to wait still another day to get dressed up!

Thank you furry much to so many of you, who sent me messages and gifts, yet again.
Meowmy tries to thank you for each one, but right now there are so many of them (and including a load for Pipo), she hopes no one will be insulted for getting their thanks by way of my diary!
I love you all, and want to purr, and knead in all of your laps, as well as send you some of my patented kitty hair lickings!
(I regularly use my sandpaper tongue on meowmy's hair! She still remembers when her hair was gone from chemo, and I would try to groom her scalp! OMC!)

Now I will purr my good nights to all of you out there in my beloved Catster-land!

Purrs!

 

Ooh-La-La!

Meowmy took a quick peek at her e-mail this morning, way early, before she had to be gone all day!
Lo and Behold...I was a DDP! And not only that, two of my furends are DDP's, too...Nadia and Samoa. Concats to them, too!
So I have had to wait a long time to play here...but better late than nevfur!
First of all, I wish to say a sincere thank you to all of you who have sent gifts and messages. I so do appawsiate all of you fur sending them to me. My gift box and mail box are full! Whee-o-whee! My slave will be keeping her fingers busy! At least she has already treated me to some good nip! And a good dose of lap time...
There is this big bag waiting fur meowmy's attention. It has these sparkling, glittering, shiny balls in it. Surely those little balls are meant fur me to be toys to swat all over the floor?! My purrsent fur being a DDP!? WHUT? They are to be put on the tree? Well, then at least I will have a load of kitty fun, trying to snag them and bash them to the floor.
Well, it is late yet again another day has slipped away, and meowmy still hasn't done her Christmas cards fur Europe, or Canada...she mostly can send E-cards, now, but there are some relatives of hers who do not have 'puters...

Good night to all, and may all sleep nice and cozy on this furry cold night!

Purrs!

I will evfur be gratefur to pawppy who got us back on line. Furry quickly, I might add. Not only is he a geek, he is a whiz! Headbonks to him!
So now though we are back, it is furry late so we shan't play, just yet!
We felt so stranded while we were off line!
The store computer let me say my excuses, but we did not get to play there at all!
But at least you knew why we had gone AWOL! MOL!

Concats and happy greetings to anyone we may have missed!
We did see that Samsara had a DDP today. Special concats to her!
Its always fun when pals of ours get these honors.

Will purr more later...meowmy is off to bed...its after midnight!

Purrs!

Christmas Snacking?

December 3rd 2010 7:51 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ]

Meowmy put out our two small trees, today. No ornaments as yet, cause we will just remove them...MOL!
Maybe after a few days!
One year when we were still way tiny and really cuckoo, she did not put anything on the trees except beaded garlands...which we tried without success to take off. All we managed to do was to tip over the trees, and get the garlands all tangled up. At this time I am in a nest close to the tree, staring at it...thinking how fun it would be to try my paw at demolishing it...but I better wait till meowmy goes to bed...
At supper, meowmy saw me trying to eat something. Pipo was close by, in case he was going to be able to snag part of my prize!
Suddenly it was snatched away...but not by Pipo...by meowmy!
I was trying to eat a long 'needle' from the Christmas tree! Oh-oh!
Meowmy said that was not a furry good snack...for me or for Pipo! Busted yet again!
I shall have to go and find that fly that still is buzzing around here somewhere...

Purrs!

 

Snow-mewsings!

Today I went all around to each window looking fur the sun...but alas...it wasn't there. instead there were these big white fluffy things coming at the windows. And covering up the grass in our yard. Lots of that stuff that I heard meowmy call snow!
I think it must be cold, too, cause meowmy put on lots of layers when she went out with the dog-guy!
Well, meowmy was gone out most of the day, but it sure was nice to have pawppy close by. He has this week off from work.
Yesterday he and meowmy took a few hours to go on a lunch date! But we had to stay home...
Meowmy put the vinyl tablecloth back on...so now it is not the most fun place to be...and its very hard to stir that one! I think the cloth one will be back for Christmas dinner...then I shall try my stirring act again!
I did get cornered to have a photo session...but it wasn't as bad as I thought! I even came back when it was Pipo's turn...so he had a chance to get in some pics with me! It got put on the We Bees page that we have.

And...I have to once again say concats to my brofur, Pipo, cause he got to be a DDP,again!
I think he must be trying to set a record or something!
I heard meowmy mumbling that Pipo always gets his DDP's when she is going to be gone from the puter!MOL!!

Well, gotta let meowmy hit her own nest now!
Purrs to all and to all a good night!
