Meowmy came home late from her work, so I had to sit patiently and await her fingers to help me get on here... at least I had pawppy's lap to enjoy...
...and I had a pawsome time doing the same with meowmy before she left for work, and upon her return, too!
No disasters happened...no mischief, either...I guess I am trying to build up my balance of 'good' before the next 'Ho-Ho' days arrive!
I have gotten so many gifts, presents, comments and pics from my pals! I am overwhelmed!
Soon I shall attempt to get meowmy to help me send out my purrsonal thanks.
But fur now here is a wee verse to try and convey my deepest thanks to all of you:
My cup is overflowing with kitty joys!
I am singing a song,
Though Meowmy calls it noise...
There are so many gifts,
They form a length furry long.
Since it late,
and Meowmy just entered the gate,
To our den...
I gave her my pen,
So that on my behalf,
She can say:
Thank you from my bursting kitty heart,
For all the love you sent me today,
On this, my Birthday!
Purrs, and more purrs!
I love you all!!

Wow, you kitties are all so pawsome and thoughtfur!I wonder what meowmy has up her sleeve fur tomorrow...I know I shall find out early, cause she has to go to work again, after 3 days off...

Christmas has come and gone...I hope that all of my furends had a lovely time. I do know that some of their peeps have been sick, so I wish them well!
And I also wish that all the sick kitties will feel better soon. After all, we are going to be starting a brand new year! Take your medicines, and eat well!
I had a grand time jumping in and attacking all the loose wrappings when the gifts were opened here. We got some new mousies, and Pipo & I have promptly lost/hidden some of them already! Poor meowmy just can't keep track of where they always manage to go, and these were too fat to fit under the appliances, a normal hiding pawlace here...
Meowmy was at the computer and suddenly she heard a big ka-thunk! She nearly had a heart attack, she was so startled! Well, I had been trying to munch on the fiber optic strands of one of our 4 table top trees...I gave a tug...but I did not achieve my goal entirely, because the whole tree fell down!
So I jumped down and was trying again, but meowmy and even the dog-guy did not allow that...shucks, I hate getting busted!
Meowmy made the Christmas dinner yesterday because she had been at work on Christmas Day. Secretly I think she was just catabrating Pipo's birthday instead, MOL!!
She made 2 pumpkin pies, but we only got to sniff at one of them...the other went to the neighbors. Whatever! Doesn't she know that we wanted to indulge in it?
She made a yummy turkey, too. We could smell its beckoning aroma for hours!
I was underfoot when meowmy was getting it ready to put on the table. I mewed with piteous mews...and...the begging worked! I got me some white meat! Never mind that it was just a teeny cube...I scored some! Pipo got some too, but he decided to let me eat his, and dog-guy stole what I didn't gobble up fast enough! Dog-guy knows that I will not beat him up the way Pipo does...because he and I are furends!
Meowmy had a new red table cloth on the table...a cloth one. I made sure to test it for softness and added some of my furs to the table settings...but to my chagrin, meowmy was not happy with that gift and the quality control. Busted again!
There was a nice bottle of wine to go with the dinner, but of course we were not offered any...but...meowmy put the still damp washed and hand dried glasses on the table to make sure they were completely dry befur setting them back in the wooden cabinet.
She furgot about them and went to bed. When she got up this morning...all of them were lying on their sides...and there was more kitty evidence on that red table cloth, and some of the baubles were out of the decorative bowl that meowmy had put on the table...the furs she saw were long and almost white. Aha! She said that Minko had left his calling card! Sheesh, meowmy, you busted me yet again!
She didn't yell at me though, because she was happy that while I had knocked over those glasses, I had not broken any...and now they are safely back in the cabinet.
I wonder what skills I can practice tonight?
I better be carefur, though...soon it will be my meowday, and I need to stay in her good books, MOL!
Happy Birthday to me, and Happy New Year to all my furends and their furmilies!!

Well...Meowmy went to her work today.
That happens a lot, not unusual...but today since it was quite cold, dog-guy did not go in the backporch so he can go back and forth at will, but he had to stay indoors for about 9 hours...
Well he greeted meowmy with a lot of exuberance and woofs when she got back...and we skulked around.
Oh-oh was the first thing meowmy thought of...what happened?
So after she took off her coat...she thought she would do a walk round to check on stuff...it didn't take but a moment to see that one of the trees was flat on the floor, the star top was beside it, and the one angel on it was somewhere else, too...And the large Delft Blue pot that the tree was standing in was on the floor, too...OMC! That is something that came from meowmy's parents home...but it was not broken, thank catness, Phew!
However the carpet was covered in bits of soil and dirt. Huh? there wasn't any plants in there...then she realized that under the stand in the pot had been the remains of a potted plant that she had been too lazy to clean up, MOL! serves her right! Well now WHO knocked the tree over and who pawed out the soil bits?
And WHO chewed off some of the fiber-optic fibers and just left them on the carpet...?
Well we just mewed at meowmy and thought she would think dog-guy did it...but actually there were no doggy paw prints there...let alone any other evidence!
So...she is sure that I did it...because I like to do major inspections of stuff, and that little felt angel looked like it could have been a catnip toy...but what about Pipo who likes to chew on junk?
I guess she will nevfur find out...because there were no flies on the wall to do any tattle-tailing! MOL!!
Have fun with your decorations, we sure did, and meowmy thought that semi naked trees would be boring! Hah!

Meowmy got out a box of cards today...snail mail versions...and I helped her get them ready to mail out to some of our elderly furmily and furends who do not have these confusers like we do. (Maybe that is a good way to stay in a less stress zone?!)
She had three little piles of them sorted according to what country they need to go to. Well I laid on them, and started to roll on them too. Afterall, if they are meowmy's peeps, then they need to have my scents on them too, MOL!
So when meowmy looked on the table to put the next card, OMC! She shooed me off of there...shucks meowmy, I was only trying to help!
Then I went off to find some other kitty style monkey business...pawing baubles out of bowls that were on another table as a decoration...oooh, that was fun! MOL!
I hope you are all having fun helping to get your dens ready for this season of joy!

Today has been strange...this morning the windows were noisy with rain pounding and pattering on them along with a strong wind. Brrr!
I did not go to the window seats around here at all, staying cozy was more important than spying on the outside world!
Then it was quieter, but colder, and very grey in the sky, way darker than ordinary clouds.
No sun puddles to speak of, last I saw one of those is but a vague memory, MOL!
Then the pattering and pinging started on the windows again, ice was coming down.
Then just before it got dark...the snow started, and now there is already a deep pile of that white fluffy stuff. About 5 inches. Evfurrything has caps on them...and dog-guy does not want to go out at all...but fur some reason he doesn't know how to use a litter box like we kitties, do. Maybe we are smarter than dogs?!
I am thankfur post Thanksgiving to be warm, dry and well fed on a day like this...and meowmy stayed home all day...wonder of wonders! Pawppy came home early, too.
Maybe she will be staying home tomorrow, too...she will not want to go to her regular Wednesday meeting, and there is no work on her schedule!Hooray, she can put up the Christmas decorations so me and Pipo can figure out how to get at them...
Maybe those snowy piles are a good thing afterall...and they do kind of look purrty...except if you have to go out to drive in that stuff.
Stay warm and cozy my furends!

OMC! It is Thanksgiving today!
How I watched the yummy things being done up in the kitchen, and lurked there to shnag some tidbit...
How I loved all the pets, and warm lap time.
How I loved washing the dog-guy's ears! MOL! (I really do do that...)
And I could go on...
Oh, and not to furget that the other day, meowmy once again got a great report form her oncologist...no cancer detected...Praise the Lord and all her furmily is furry thankfur fur that!
But not the least that me and Pipo are thankfur for are all the great furends we have here! Catster is a blessing fur sure.
Thanks to all of you!!

I was lurking under the dining room table when I smelled some yums!
So I jumped right up there, even though I know it isn't allowed,and even less so at meal times...MOL! Hey peeps, I am a CAT!
Well right under my sniffer was some red stuff on a plate and pawppy was furry concerned that I was going to nibble his Mousse Cake...
Um...I thought it was Mouse Cake!
Shucks, I got duly replaced to the floor with the admonition to keep 'Four on the Floor'.
What will I do when I smell all the yums that are sure to be there when the Feast is there later this week?

Last night Pawppy came back from his unexpected and sad trip to Washington, DC.
He had been with Grammy and then had to stay even longer to do the funeral stuff after she passed away.
He will be going back there again in a few weeks to deal with some of the other things that this type of event 'generates'.
Well, we were happy to see him of course, and meowmy even more so!
Dog-guy was totally nuts!
He came in so late that he just parked his luggage down and after a snack and some chatting with meowmy he went to bed...and left the bags for us to investigate and keep warm!
He also brought in a big pink box.
But it wasn't for me or Pipo...it was a belated birthday cake for meowmy!
Meowmy had to work on her spawsial day, and no one was here for her, except us kitties and the dog-guy.
Well when she came home from work that night we gave her lots of purrs, headbonks and lapwarmings...and somefur left her a pawresent...of a piddle-puddle...just outside the box...hee-hee...we have not let her in on the perpetrator of this deed which happens about once a week or so...but she thinks it is Pipo who does it...of course *I* am an innocent kitty...MOL!(Pipo is lazy about poo covering so that is why she thinks he stands in the wrong place to tinkle...whatevfur!)
Today mewomy threw away a good blanket that she could have let me use to knead and nap on...but she said 'No, you have enough kitty beds and perches already."
It was an electric blanket that she had to replace due to its demise...and it also had a scorch mark on it...OMC! We could have had a house fire...shudder! OK, then I guess it was justified...but couldn't you have just let me & Pipo keep it warm until it had to go to the blanket dump?
Well, that's all folks!
We are cuddling in one of our nest sites...cause it is a cold night...

Meowmy said she is leaving us for a few days in the care of Pawppy...
She says she will miss letting me give her the di-cat-tions for comments and mewing at her my approval of those pics/mementos that me and Pipo like to send out...please accept her apologies.
Stay well,and keep having fun, romping around here on Catster.
Purrs in abundance to last till I am back here.
