Hey, everbuddy! We are sure glad that guy named Brutus left town. Now he must be makin somebuddy else's life miserbl.
We got over 15 inchers of snow. It was mostly just a nuisance, but a few things happened that did not make mama very happy. First of all, our back door lock freezed so we could not get out the back door. That made mama nervus just in case of a mergency. The front door would open, and the storm door would open part way, but then the snow was too heavy, so it got stucked.
After most of the snow falled, mama went out and walked through snow that was deeper than her boots are tall. First of all, she had to dig round in the closets to find somethin called gators. Oh, wait a minute. Mama sez it is "gaiters," and they do not bite. Anyway, mama shoveled and shoveled. Then mama tried to knock down the snow that was hangin off the roof by the back door. It falled down, hit the porch light, and then the light would not work. Then after mama was almost freezed herself, she had to go to grampster's and get his heat gun and a stenshun cord to get the back door lock unfreezed. It worked, but then a coupla hours later it was freezed again. Mama got the heat gun and unfreezed it. Then she put a plastic bag over the doorknob hopin it would keep the water out, but that did not work neether, and it freezed again.
The next mornin, grampster came over and helped mama with the door. They put some stuff in it that is sposed to unstick stuff. Then the door was OK even though it got down below zero last night. Mama got a ladder, and she and grampster knocked big piecers of snow off the roof. Some of it went right on mama's head. ;) Then grampster and mama changed the bulb in the porch light, and it worked again.
Finally Brutus is goned, but he left us lotsa snow on everything. Mama stayed home cuz we did not hafta go to town for anything, and mama sez peeples forget how to drive on snow and ice, so she gave em a few days for practisin. Now the snows will either blow all around and make big skary drifts, or it will get all melty and messy.
Guns and I guess the stroller rides are over until next spring, but we got our birdie watchin window, and it is all full of sunbeams today.

Last night mama told me and Gunnie a beddytime story. We both love stories, so we curled up on the big bed with mama and listened. We listened so hard I think our ears got bigger.
Mama started our story with "Once upon a time..." In the story, which mama said is true, she was four years old. Our grampster was buildin a new house for his family, so grammie and mama and her new little sister who was just borned were livin with great grammie and great grampster in Wyoming. Mama was a good little girl, but she missed her daddy, and she was kinda confused bout what was goin on with the new baby and the new house and stuff.
Right before grampster was to come and get his family, somebuddy dropped a litter of baby kitties off on the corner at great grammie and great grampster's house. Grammie found the kitties first, and she told great grammie bout the kitties. All but one was wild, but the one tiger striped kitty was real sweet. Great grammie said to be sure that mama did not see the kitties cuz she would want one. Well, grammie thought maybe that was the perfect thing to make mama happy and start their new life in Big Sky Country in the new house. Against great grammie's wishes, grammie made sure that mama saw the kitties. Course, when mama and grammie went outside all of the kitties runned away, all but one, the tiger stripey one. Grammie helped mama pick the baby kitty up and cuddle him. Mama's eyes were shinin, and she asked if she could keep the kitty. Grammie said yes, even though she knew great grammie and great grampster did not want the baby kitty around.
Just a few days later grampster came in an old flatbed truck to take his family to the new house. The new baby kitty was comin too. Mama had named him Tiger. There was not much room in the front of the truck, so grammie and grampster made Tiger a nice bed in a big cardboard box and packed it with the nuther boxes on the flatbed.
The trip was bout 400 miles, and they could not go very fast in the old truck. Only bout 25 miles from where they started, it started rainin. Now grammie and grampster knew that Tiger's box would get real wet, and maybe Tiger would get real wet too. Grampster found a place to stop, and he and grammie got Tiger outta his box. Then they brought him to mama. Tiger rode almost 400 miles curled up in mama's lap. He never yelled or tried to get away or anything; he was a perfect gentleman.
That Tiger kitty was the first of several Tigers that mama had. He was a special kitty. He was real big and fluffy. He loved everbuddy, and he hardly ever even put his claws out. If he snagged one of his claws, he would sit and wait for somebuddy to get him unsnagged. It was a happily ever after story. Tiger lived many happy years in Big Sky Country with mama and her family.
P.S. In case ya did not know, Gunnie's T stands for Tiger cuz mama wanted him to have a connekshun with all the good tiger kitties who came before him.

Saturday was the Petco Howlween photo shoot. Mama and daddy wanted to take me and Guns cuz the monies were goin to the Pet Paw-See, and that is the rescue that saved me and Guns when we were just babies. See, the peeples where we were borned did not want us. Guns was probly a stink bug, but I do not know how anybuddy could resist me. Anyway, Guns and I dopted mama with the help of the nice peeples at the Pet Paw-See, speshly auntie Leslie.
Thursday night after Guns and I had been practisin wearin our costooms, mama got out the steamer and steamed my little sparkly pink dress so it would be perfect. She put it on the teensy hanger thingie. Then she packed treats and a comb and brushy and Gunnie's skull tie and Howlween collar.
Saturday morning it was cold and snowin, but mama and daddy packed us into mama's truck, and away we went for Petco. Gunnie had to go first, and mama and daddy turned my carrier so I could watch and see what was gonna happen.
After Guns was done with his pictures, mama got me out and put my dress and wimple on. Guns would not sit on the bench all alone, so mama knew I would not do it neether. I learn lotsa stuff from watchin Guns, and then sumtimes I copy what he does, speshly the bad stuff.
Guess what? I found out scarecrows are nice! The scarecrow let me sit on her lap, and she put her arms round me so I would not be so skared. I do hafta say mostly I wanted to jump down and run away, but mama makes me and Guns do stuff that is kinda skary sumtimes, and then we get to come home and everything is the same. Then the next time we are not so skared. I did try to push the scarecrow away with my hinder leggies, but she held on tight.
Then all of a sudden mama came and got me. She asked where my aunt Debi was cuz she was my foster mama with the Pet Paw-See. We walked round and round Petco lookin for aunt Debi. Mama said I was the very best girl cuz I just looked at everything over her shoulder while she walked and jigglered me like a baby. The peeples who saw us were all smilin. I think maybe they never saw a kitty princess before.
I went right in my carrier as soon as mama took my princessy dress off. Then Guns and I and daddy all had to wait while mama checked our pictures and got our CD and paid the monies for it.
When we got home, Guns and I had lunch, and then we took a long, long nap. We talked bout how mama wants us to be worldly. Yep, we get skared, but it does not last very long, and then everything is just like before. I think we can do that...

Down under kitty. That's what mama sez. Just when winter is comin, I am sheddin my poofalicious coat and gettin slicker. Last spring when I shoulda beened sheddin, I grew my coat. I guess I am just backerwards.
Today Guns and I had to practis wearin our Howlween costooms again. Mama wants us to be used to wearin the costooms when we go to Petco for the Howlween photo shoot.
I was bein a REAL good girl and wearin my dress without fussin, so mama put on my wimple. I didn't run off, so mama got the camera. When she got back, my wimple was all wonky, so she tooked the ear thingies off my ears. Then I did not complain bout wearin the wimple. Mama followed me round the house and tooked some pictures just in case:
A) The Petco photo shoot does not go well (like if I will not look happy or even flee the scene; do you think they will chaser me round Petco?).
B) Mama and daddy are too bizzy to set up our little studio at home and take pictures of us before Howlween.

Oh, my goodiness! I missed my DDP honors yesterday. It is all mama's fault. She was real bizzy tryin to cleaner up our house, so Guns and I did not get to come to Catster at all yesterday. Thanks to the nice kitties who p-mailed me and gave me prezunts. I will be writerin you real soon.
I got an importunt thing to tell ya bout. Mama boughtened me and Guns new ID taggies. They are made by barkcode (www.barkcode dot com). They have two sizes, one for dawgs and smaller ones for kitties. Each taggie has a speshl number on the back and somethin called a QR code. If kitties get lostered, anybuddy who finds em can scan the code with a cell phone and see all the kitty's infomashuns. It even works if the humans do not have a smartphone.
There is lotsa stuff to fill out on the profile pages, so mama wanted to finish ours before she mentioned the barkcodes. There is room for doctors, lotsa phone numbers to call, up to four pictures, your microchip number if ya have one, and all kindsa other good stuff.
The taggies cost $15.95 with free shipsterin at the site, but mama bought ours here in town from Happy Tails Lodge, and they were only $13.00. There is no activation fee and no annual fee to have your infomashuns on the site. There are diffrunt styles of taggies. Mine is Peekaboo pink with a white heart shape on the front. Gunnie's is dark blue with a white paw print on it, and it says "Help Me Home."
Both Guns and I alreddy got microchipsters, but mama thinks the barkcodes are another layer of protekshu in case we ever get lostered. So, if ya ever wear a harness or collar, check it out.

I am gonna be Howl-ween princessy. Today Guns and I got our Howl-ween costooms. Mine is a pink and purple sparkly dress and wimple with a sparkly tail on it. Mama did not think our Petco store would have the costooms, so she ordered em on-line. Then when mama and daddy went to the store, they had lotsa costooms, but I do not think they had my size. Mama was happy when she saw that the dress did not have sleeves. I do not like my leggies bended to go into sleeves, but my new princessy dress just fastens with sticky stuff round my neck and round my tummy. Mama put the dress on me, and I did not even mind. We sat together on the floor for awhile, and mama petted me and talked to me tellin me what a good girl I was. Then mama showed me the wimple. It is real pretty. It gots a pink diamond on the front and pink feathery stuff, and a sparkly tail. I sniffed and sniffed the wimple. After I was sure it would not bite, mama put the wimple on me. It was kinda loose, and it rocked back and forth when I put my head up or down, but it never comed loose, and I did not get skared and run away or even pull my wimple off.
Soooo, I got mama totally fooled. Now she thinks I will be a good girl and get my Howl-ween picture tooked without a fight. Hmmmmmm...I will have to think bout that one.
Mama did say I am the most gorgeous princess on four leggies. Maybee, just maybee I will let her take a picture or two.

Somebody call PETA! I have beened abused. See, I was just mindin my own bizziness this mornin after I used the potty. Mama would would come outta the offis and walk round the house with her nose goin all sniffy. Then she would go back in the offis for awhile. Then she would come back out and walk around the house sniffin.
Mama saw me sittin in the hall and came and picked me up. Then her nose started wrinklin. I should have runned away when I had the chance cuz mama tooked me in the bathyroom. She looked at my butt, and there was a piece of kinda fresh kitty poop stuck in my bloomers. I tried to get away, but mama got out some pet wipers. I struggled while she was wipin at the poop ball. I yelled too, but it did not help. After three pet wipers did not make me smell nice again, mama closed the bathyroom door. Mama sighed, and then she started runnin water in the bathy tub.
Oh, NOOOOOOOOOOOO! Mama got out the speshl kitty shampoo and a clean towel. Then mama picked me up. I tried to get away again, but mama put me into the bathy tub. I screamed and tried to climb up mama's shoulder. I yelled and yelled for Guns to come and rescue me, but he could not get in. Mama kept tellin me to calm down, and finally I did. Well, sorta. Then mama shampooed my booty and rinsed it. Then she shampooed it again and rinsed again. Finally I saw my chance to scape. I started runnin in place, but then I made it to mama's shoulder. I slapped her right in the face with my soaky wet tail, but then she got a towel round me, and I was trapped again.
Mama and I sat down on the potty, and she rocked me and talked to me for a coupla minutes tryin to calm me down. That worked pretty good, so mama rubbed at my wet furs with the towel. When she finally let me go, I gave her a dirty look and ran out the door when it opened. It took me HOURS to get my furs fluffy and dry again. Later mama akshly picked me up and sniffed my booty just to make sure it was clean. How dare she?

I think mama is plottin gainst me and Gunnie. I am not happy that summer is over in Big Sky Country cuz while the weather was nice, mama was outdoors all the time, and she did not even think bout photo shoots and nuther things that I have decidered I do not like to do.
This mornin mama was checkin her e-mail, and there was one from Petco. I peeked and saw mama lookin at pet costooms for Howl-ween! She looked and looked. Sumtimes she zoomed in to see the costooms REALLY good. Finally she started puttin stuff in her shopsterin cart. First she put in a black and red vampire cape. Then she put in a white collar with a black bow tie. I think those are for Guns, so I do not care much, although mama might decide to try and put the cape on me too.
The badderest part was when she kept goin back and forth between a pink sparkly dress and pointy hat and a girl pirate outfit with a stupid lookin black pirate hat. Finally, after she looked and looked and flipped back and forth between em, she put the pink dress and pointy hat in her cart. Oh, NO! That one is def-nutly not for Gunnie.
Mama is cheep, and I saw her choosin the looooooooonnnnnnnnnng time for shipsterin, so maybee I have time to practis my runnin and hidin. I can run pretty fast, but I have to make sure I keep my tail straight up in the air so it is not a handle, and I have to practis zippin underneath Mr. Big Bed REAL fast.
I am pretty sure mama is thinkin bout Howl-ween. She already had "instruments of torture" with the chickie hat and devil horns. Why does she need to shopster even more? Just cuz Missy would put up with gettin dressed up in peeple lookin outfits and sittin in a chair and lookin like she liked it does not mean I will do it too. It's all Missy and Guns' fault cuz they actually like(d) gettin their pictures tooked.
Now I am gonna go look for hidey holes where mama catnot find me...

Ooh, thank you all SO much for all the cool pirate flaggies you left on my page. Guns and I were not around yesterday. Mama had to go to town and do shopsterin, so Guns and I sailed our pirate ships while mama was goned. She never even knew that the Gilded Lily set sail with me as her captain. She is so fast we sailed many, many miles and still got home before mama. My crew is made up of loyal tabbies, and they are real good sailer cats.
On anuther subject, I am so very, very sorry I did not thank everykitty and pup for their good wishies and the prezunts I got while I was kitty of the week. Mama sez it was kinda bad timin that it happened right when we were gettin ready to leave on vacashun. Then we got back and left on anuther vacashun, and then the last time we did not even have a week in between vacashuns. It was takin all mama's time to pack, washy the clothes, try and straighten up our housie, and pack to leave again.
We feel kinda like bad friends cuz of it, and now the prezunts are beginnin to diss-pear from my page. Mama thinks manners are important, and she feels terbl that she wasn't able to help me get my thank-yous out. It would make me real happy if you could forgive me just this one time. If you do, I pawmise it will never happen again, no matter what!
