It is finally summertime here in Big Sky Country. The sky is blue, the sun is shinering, and there is a nice breeze. Every morning mama gets up and opens the bay window in the dining room for me and Gunnie. Daddy calls it "smellervision" because we can watch, hear, and smell all the wonderful smells from outside. This is a yellow clover year, and the air is perfumed with the scent of sweet clover. The birdies are singing, and they like to sit on the fence. Sometimes I think they are teasering me. They just sit there and fluff their feathers and chirp. I think they are saying "Catch us if you can, Peekie." Then I do my little birdie cry. Mama says it is a sad, pathetic sound, but I am just talking to the birdies and saying "I wanna eat you, birdie!" After I say that, they usually fly away.
Mama has a new craft that she is trying. Auntie taught mama how to make paper beads. It is a cheap hobby (mama says that is inexpensive) because you mostly only need a bunch of paper and some glue. I like it because there are cool little scraps of paper all over in the craft room, AND mama gets all interested in what she is doing and forgets about me and Gunnie. Sometimes we can have lots of fun doing stuff mama would not like because she is working too hard on her paper beads.
I think I LOVE summertime!

While my auntie was here, the whole family cept for me and Gunnie went to Ryan Dam. It is on the Great Falls of the Missouri. Lewis and Clark camed here way back in the olden days. They thought they could paddle canoes up the river until they found the falls. Oops! Mama says what they did is called "portaging." Then they were so tired they stayed for almost three weeks only a mile from where we live.
Even with the dam, the falls are BIG. This year the water is real high, and the falls were amazing even to mama and daddy and auntie and grampster who have seen them so many times. Auntie decided to try out the little video thingie on her new camera. Later when everbuddy watched the video, they said "WOW! This is way cool! You can even hear the water."
Later mama wondered about the video setting on her camera. Mama knew the camera could take movies, but she was always too bizzy taking pictures of things that do not move. Mama was studying bout the camera a coupla nights ago, and she decided to see how hard it was to make movies. Eeeeeezzzzeeee as pie.
Guess who got to star in mama's very first movie? That's right; ME!!!!! the Peekaboo Princess. The movie is not very good, but that is mama's fault. I was perfect in my very first role. I laid on the bed and watched mama with my beautiful green eyes and twitched just the end of my tail back and forth. See, I did not know what mama was doing. Next time I will do something real cool for the movie. Gunnie got to be in a movie too, but as soon as mama started recording, he quit moving and just sat there. I guess mama has us trained for snapping still pictures.
I hope mama gets bizzy and writes me a new script. Wouldn't it be cool if I became a Hollywood Star?

My auntie came to visit for a week from Nevader. I think she was nice, but I could not make up my mind if I should let her hold me. She could pet me most times, and she sounded like mama, but I was just not quite sure if I REALLY liked her a lot.
Gunnie liked auntie, but he is braver than me. Maybe he is just more reckless than me. He let auntie pick him up and carry him around the house and pet him anytime she wanted.
Mama and daddy were goned a lot when auntie first got here. Then daddy left for Pinedale, Wyoming, and mama and auntie stayed home more doing what they called "projects." Auntie is doing our family history; well, mama's, not mine and Gunnie's. Anyway, they had all these real old pictures. They were looking at the pictures and reading old letters and getting real eksitered bout stuff. They stuck some of the things inside a black thingie on mama's desk and pushed some buttons. Then they took the things out and put them back. They said they were scanning photos. I think maybe they were just pretending.
On Independence Day auntie taught mama how to make paper beads. They were messy; there was fun stuff scattered all over mama's craft table. Gunnie and I were all ready to explore the beads, but mama and auntie shut the door up tight when they were finished.
On Tuesday when auntie left, mama and grampster took her to the airport. Mama saw Gunnie and thought she knew where I was, so she shutted the office door up tight when she left. Then she and auntie and grampster went to town. After auntie was ready to get inside a giant birdie to go home, mama and grampster went to some stores and shopstered. When mama camed home, Gunnie greeted her at the door, but she did not see me. Mama called me, but I still did not come. Mama was pretty surprised when she opened the office door. I was standing there waiting to come out. I was pretty good while I was locked in the office without any food, water, or a potty. I only knocked a coupla things off the desk. I tried to tell mama I thought if I got on the desk maybe I could open the up tight door, but she did not believe me.
Mama tried to lecture me bout being a sneak, but I just purred and trilled because it did not even scare me. Mama was kinda disserpointed because she hoped I learned a lesson. Not even, mama...

Ooh, I am so eksitered. Mama left me and Gunnie home alone and went to summer celebrashun in Ft. Benton to be with daddy. Mama shopstered at Art on the Levee.
Then when the show closed, mama and daddy picked up their roast chickie and tato salad at the store and went back to daddy's big rendezvous tent and had dinner. They had cake too, and mama said it looked like enough cake for three peoples. They did not have very many dishes, so they were sharing the cake out of the box it comed in. Hmmmmm...Somehow all the cake disappeared with just mama and daddy eating it.
After dinner mama and daddy went for a walk around town like they always do. They found two more abandoned houses and an old church they wish they had monies to buy and fix all up. Mama said they were in terbl shape, but it is fun to pretend how they could look if peoples would fix them.
As soon as it got dark, they started setting off the big fireworks on the old bridge. Mama said the coolest one looked like a silver waterfall coming off the bridge deck. It lasted for minutes! After that, there was so much smoke, the nuther fireworks had to go way up high in the sky so the peoples could see them. Mama and daddy laughed and said the urban deer probly scampered out of town when the fireworks started, and the gunsmoke from the fireworks made all the skeeters go away.
When mama got home this morning Gunnie was being a wuss. He was crying and clingy and wanted mama to hold him like a baby. I was happy to see mama, but I am more independent. Gunnie is needy. So much for all the "I'm a tough guy boy cat" stuff...
Mama had something speshl in a bag when she camed in the house. It is a kitty birdyhouse! The kitty is kinda smiling and laying on his back with his paws up in the air. His tail sorta sticks out. He has a hole in the side of his tummy. Mama says that is how the birdies get inside his tummy to make their nest. Gunnie and I thought he was a cool kitty. We sniffied him up real good. The best part is he looks kinda like me only I am prettier of course. He is gray with black stripes. Mama said there weren't any kitty birdyhouses that looked like Gunnie. One was black, but mama was afraid the birdies might get too hot inside it.
Daddy will be here soon, and he is gonna help mama hang the birdyhouse up where we can see it from our deck. Mama says it is kinda late to be putting up a birdyhouse, but you just never know. Maybe there are some birdies that wanna live there. Will we have birdies with babies in our new kitty birdyhouse this summer? I catnot wait to see what happens.

Ooh, ooh; our auntie is coming. We have lots of peoples we call auntie and unkl, but this is mama's sister, so she is our real auntie. She is coming from far, far away to see us. Gunnie and I can't wait to meet her. She has two kitties of her own, so we know she will like us lots.
Auntie is gonna stay with grampster, so mama has been helping grampster fix up his guest room. Grampster gets tired kind of easy, so mama has been shopstering for stuff for grampster's guest room.
Today Gunnie and I had to stay home alone all day because mama was out shopstering all over town. When mama came home she was all eksitered because she found everything on grampster's list in one trip, and she found a nice floor lamp marked down 55%. Grampster thinks mama is a real good shopper, and daddy calls mama the Amazing Shopstering Mama because she is so good at finding deals.
We are finally getting summer in Big Sky Country, so Gunnie and I got to be cool kitties with the air condishuner on. I like to stretch out on the floor where the cool air blows and let it fluff my fur. My silly brother fell asleep in the bay window in the hot sun this afternoon. He was probably too tired from sitting in the living room and wailering for mama while she was shopstering.

This morning Gunnie decided I needed a bath. I catnot figure out why because I am SO much cleaner and fluffier than him. Anyway, when Gunnie started to wash my ruff, I started squirming and trying to get away. My brother, the bully, stuck his paw right in the middle of my beautiful forehead "M" so I could not get away. I decided it wasn't so bad after all, so I let Gunnie wear out his tongue giving me a good wash. He can have the hairball too...
P.S. If Monida's forehead "M" stands for "Monida," what does mine stand for?

Ooh, oooooh; the most terriblest thing happened to me and Gunnie today. Mostly everything was normal until this afternoon. Then mama got our stroller out of the office and put it in the bedroom. Then she got our food, water, and potty and put it in the bedroom too. Gunnie and I were napstering on the bed. We watched mama and wondered why she was bringing all our stuff right to us. As soon as we had all our stuff, she shut the door and locked us in!
It was nice in the bedroom. Even the window was open so we had a nice cool breeze, but we did not want to be there! Locked in! Ooh, it was SO terrible. Mama left us locked up for hours and hours and hours.
Finally mama opened the door and let us out. Her excuse for putting me and Gunnie in jail was that Unkl Mike, the computer guy, was coming to reinstall our printer wirelessly, and mama was worried that Gunnie might get underfoot or stick his nosy nose where it did not belong.
Ummmmm; so why did I have to go to jail too?

Ooh, ooh; it does not matter that it is raining kitties and pups outside here today, and Gunnie and I catnot go for a stroller ride.
Mama and I just found out that I am the winner of the monthly photo contest at the Cat and Dog Plaza group! The theme was "pose," and I guess I must be a pretty good poser. Gunnie is jealous because mama entered a picture of him too, but I won.
Thanks to the administrators of Cat and Dog Plaza for choosing my picture. It was real nice of you, and it makes me feel real speshl.

I was doing a great job of being well until mama and Unkl Dr. quit giving me my prednisone. It was just a teensy bit; 0.1 ml every other day, but as soon as mama stopped giving me any, my bads started to come back. Mama thinks MAYBE it started when I went from 0.2 to 0.1 ml every other day. Anyway, mama was horror-fied when she saw one of those awful rodent lesions starting on my mouth. I had to go see Unkl, and now I am taking more prednisone until the rodent lesion heals and the bads on my leg go away. Then we will try less medsins. Unkl says I have not been on my cyclosporin long enough to know if it will work for me.
Mama felt SO bad that I am sick again, but guess what? I never even know I am sick. I trill and purr and scamper and play and eat like a pony mama says. I feel so lucky to have my forever home and a mama and daddy and brother who love me so much. Mama says she finds her very best "assertiveness" when she is fighting to keep me and Gunnie happy and healthy. My daddy would do anything for me and Gunnie too. I love my daddy so much. Mama said I had a very sad look on my face when daddy left this morning.
Akshually, the worsterest thing that happened to me and Gunnie today was when mama locked us in jail so she could put the new computer back together. I just don't understand why she would not want me and Gunnie having a wrestling match under her feet while she was trying to move the big tower and plug all the thingies into the back. Some mamas are kinda ungrateful, I guess.
