Life has been quiet for a while. Mom did get this really cool Jackson Galaxy toy, highly recommend it. It’s a cool mousie on a wire with a stick and it is sooooo much fun to play with. You can get it on his website if you want it and he donates money to a lot of kitty charities so go get a cool toy for your kitty and help out those less fortunate than us. Mom does call this toy “kitty krack”. I’m not sure what that means, but it is a fun thing to play with.
Speaking of fun… Mom was having some of these guys come over. Not sure what they were doing, but they were going into all the rooms, moving stuff around and putting stuff in walls. Sometimes lights would come on sometimes they would just go off and stuff would beep. I don’t get it, but I loved following these guys around and “helping”.
And to get really fun, they opened this door in the hallway and it went up someplace. I think they are called stairs. They went up there, so I decided to go up. It was so cool up there. Lots of places to check out and stuff to look at and sniff. I heard voices and it was a bit cool up there, but still… I could smell squirrel and birds and maybe a mousie or two, although I didn’t see any.
I was having such a good time that when Mom came home and started calling my name, I didn’t bother with her. This was the coolest place and I was not done checking it out. Even when she started rattling the treat can. Who needs treats when there are dark places with interesting smells to check out?
Then it got quiet and dark and colder and I decided that it was time to leave my new playground, but I was having a problem finding my way back downstairs to my food, water and nice warm couch! I heard Mom come up and call my name, so I answered. She answered back and finally she found me! She picked me up and put me down on the stairs giving me a little pat on the butt to go downstairs. I don’t know why she couldn’t carry me so I let her know… I went down and told her how cool and neat and why was she hiding this cool place from us as she came down the stairs. She just patted me and closed the door! I decided to have a snack and drink but when Mom opened that magical door, I went for it but she stopped me. Oh well.. to the couch. Time for a nap after that adventure, but you can bet I’ll be watching that door!!

Hello everyone...sorry for such a long time in writing. Instead of my usual silly self, I have some sad news to report. Mama has passed to the Rainbow Bridge. They tell me the "Bridge" is a wonderful place where all animals go and play and wait for their humans, where there is no pain or fear, only fun! Sounds like a great place to me, but Mom was so sad. She had water coming from her eyes and was saying Mama's name. I tried to cheer her up by going to her, butting my head against her to let her know I am here and that I love her. Mama scratched me, kissed my nose and told me she loved me. I sat with Mom a lot during that time and she seemed to like that and scratched my ears. I purred because if felt good and I wanted Mom to feel better.
Mama wasn't feeling good for a long time. She'd throw up a lot, got real skinny and one of her eyes looked funny, but she still sat in the cat tree and looked outside checking out all the cool stuff. My little sister Bella sat next to her a lot. She's the closest to Mama since she was a tiny baby she came to live with us and Mama being a Mama took care of her. Mama was also Thingy's mom(Athena) who is at the Bridge too. I think it pretty cool that Mama gets to see her babies again.
Mom is getting better but she still says she misses Mama, but I want to tell her she's OK up in that fun Bridge place, but I'm in no hurry to get there. Why should I be? I have the best home a cat could ask for! But when I do go, I want Mom to know it's alright and I'm having fun at the Bridge... but again, no hurry to get there...

Now I’m not sure what the problem is, but Mom used to let us go on the bed while she was gone. I for one loved this, and would spend my day sleeping in Mom’s warm comfy bed. Why, I seem to think it was really my bed and I was just letting her sleep in it. Now though she chases us out and closes the door. I don’t know why, but I suspect it has to do with Bella, the youngest and most devious of us. It could be because Xena, the old lady sometimes likes to potty on it. I don’t get that either, but then again Mom calls her mental for a reason.
So now we can’t go in there unless she’s in there, but me being me, I try to hide and so I can stay in there. I know Mom doesn’t see me, since I go under the bed or behind something. I think hehehehehe… I got her now! I will be able to sleep on this nice soft bed and not be bothered by the others, but Mom catches on to me all the time and even though I give her my best innocent look she knows and chases me out once I get myself settled… darn the luck. I did almost have her one morning, but she knows… I don’t know how she knows… maybe it’s because she likes to say goodbye to us and give us all scratches when she leaves, which I love. Even though she calls me naughty and sneaky, she still tells me she loves me and gives me scratches and butt rubs… oh well, to the cat tree or couch I go, but I still won’t stop trying after all, that wouldn’t be me…!!

Sorry I have not kept up this diary, but there is so little time and I have to get my naps in.
Since my last entry, Mom added another sister, a little black and white thing she calls BellaDonna, Bella or Bell for short, but most of the time she calls her names that I, as a decent good kitty, cannot repeat! You see Bella is a bit of a stinker.
She was just a tiny thing when Mom first brought her home. At first I thought….oh goody, a live mousie, but darn that was not the case. She was just a really small cat. At first we did not know what to think. Even Seraphina, the scaredy cat hissed at her!! But Mama knew, since she has been the only one of us who had babies and was soon babying her.
It didn’t take long for Bella to take over the house. She soon showed her personality as a bully and would jump on us, bite us and chase us around the house. Mom said she just wants to play…. Mom is so blind to Bella’s diabolical thinking. Bella wants to be boss! Now granted, this just may be me, but I think she’s the devil incarnate, even when she comes over to me and rubs against me and licks my head. I do fall for it every time, but it doesn’t take long for Bella to show her true roots and starts “something” with me. We try to “stare it down” since I’m so much bigger than her you’d think she’d back off, but NOOOOO, she will jump on me, even though I show her that I am the BOSS of her, she doesn’t seem to listen.
I’m not the only one she picks on. She chases Seraphina around the house, and yes Seraphina is over twice her size as well. But I think Seraphina kind of likes it since she taunts Bella. Lets just say Seraphina is not the brightest bulb in the house…
Mama is the only one in the house, including Mom, that Bella will “Listen” too. Mama puts Bella in her place with a hiss and laid back ears. Bella cowers and backs off fast. Mom thinks this is funny, and yep, so do I!!
For all her bravado to us, Bella is a true coward when other humans come into the house. She goes and runs behind the couch. I on the other hand, have to see them and introduce myself. After all, a scratch is a scratch! Bella is not the only one that runs, Seraphina is a given, but Mama does too…. What gives? Only me and the old lady, Xena stay out to check them out. Xena though will not come near them and if she is forced near them she hisses…like she’s a threat! I don’t understand it, but then again I get all the attention and I love that!
Well, all this “typing” has worn me out. I think I’ll have a snack, a drink and then go find the sun and take a nap…. Purrs to you all!

Today I woke up to sunshine coming through the front windows of the house. I like to sit in the early sun and enjoy it while Mom and my sister Mama sleep in the other room. I was in there at the end of the bed, but once that sun comes up and the birds start chirping, I’m up and looking for that sunny spot. My little sister Seraphina runs around… kids go figure… and after a while I’ve had enough so I wait for her to run by and pounce on her. Such fun! She doesn’t learn though, and takes off and continues running around. Why, I don’t know but I let her go for awhile, then wait and pounce again. I swear she does this just to get to me.
When my Mom gets up, she comes out and says good morning to all of us. I come over and greet her and then get scratched. She rubs my head and back and butt calls me “chunky butt” and I love it! I could be scratched all day like that.
Then Seraphina goes zipping by and I give her a hiss. Just a small one, but that doesn’t do much. Mom goes to another room and turns on water and gets in it. Why? I don’t get it. Gives me time though to pounce on the kid one more time.
I then have breakfast and go lay on the just made bed and wait for the sun. Sometimes I show Mom to the door as she leaves. She always says goodbye to us, but most of the time I lay on the bed and wait for the sun.
It’s going to be a beautiful day!! Time for a nap
