Full moon zoomies!!!!

It's 4 AM and my mommy can't sleep. Wanna know why? HUH? Cause me and Lacey have the biggest case of the zoomies we've had in ages! We are tearing up the house all night long. Grammy and grampy usually can't hear very much when they're sleeping downstairs, they're knocked out cold. But I wonder if that's the case tonight? We sure are trying hard, MOL.

We cuddled with mom earlier and gave her kisses and stuff and watched this cute cartoon movie called "Tangled". It was really good! Then, out of nowhere, I got my brat on and started yanking on mom's mattress. Then I went over and yanked on her brand new curtains and, you guessed it, put a couple of pulls and a tear in it. Then Lacey jumped on the kitchen table, got that look in her eyes and WHAM! jumped on my head. Well that was it! We've spent the last 2 hours catapulting off the towers, running on top of the bed and mommy's head too. Jumping up on the desk and almost knocking the computer off. I'm running around doing my little trilling, brrrrrwewwww. MOL. Mom thinks it's funny even though she's mad about the curtains.

She thinks I'm hysterical when I run because I put my big bushy tail straight up and kind of skip off, tra la la la la. Mom asked what the heck was going on tonight and she looked outside and saw the ALMOST full moon. Not full until Monday but heck, why wait? We're starting early!

BTW, thank you all for the purrs, pawmails and POTP's your sending my meowmy and cousin Midnight. We know that POTP really works and mom already feels much lighter and calmer. Which is good for us since we're smashing into furniture and flinging furballs all over the place.

Also, I cannot forget this funny question that Kaci Sunshine asked in her last diary. She mentioned how she gets the zoomies after doing a poopy and asked if anybody else does. Of COURSE I answered that question. So I ask you all the same question! Do you Zoomie when you poopy? Because I do! I don't even cover it up, I let Lacey do it. MOL. I like to leave my scent-a-la-Finnegan for everyone to experience. It's the least I can do.

Well, gotta run! I mean zoomie. I'm not done yet, got more zoomies in me. I just need a 5 minute zoom break. Off to destroy more of the house.

Come on and zoom zoom zooma zoom! Zooma zooma zooma zoom!

I LOVE to zoom. Zoomie could be a nickname for me. I zoom after poops. Mom thinks it's funny when I zoom, zoom, zoom and I blast through the bedroom and zoom over her bed just for fun ~ I barely even touch the bed I'm zooming so fast. I'm glad your zoomies made your mom smile a little.

I like to zoom too! After poops I'll zoom around and stop and roll on the floor and I'll chirp and trill and zoom over and scratch the scratching post! Zoom, zoom, zoom!

Zoom ZOom! yes! after using the litterbox I zooom all the way to the other end of the house and scratch scratch scratch scratch on the little rug in meowmie's bedroom. Oh boy that feels soooo good.

There is defintely something going on with this full moon. I mean I zoooomed around this morning and meowmie heard me and Bibi crashing into things and even yowling a bit. She was shocked and came out of the bathroom and said, what is with you two? Then Bibi went and sat on the dresser. I quickly zoomed into the bedroom, tapped the bed, flipped direction and zooomed away as far as I could. Yikes!

MOL! You guys are all furry talented zoomers. Tink, no. Sorry sweetie, don't buy it, MOL! Meep that's what we do too. Run and hit the bed or the couch or something and zooooomm out of the room! Nadia we can't jump over the bed cause it's up against the wall, so that would hurt, MOL. Gumpy you roll around after? I gotta try that! We're napping a little right now but I'm sure we'll be getting more zoomies later on, since that full mooon is still 3 days away! Whoo hoo! Look out momma!

Oh she asked grammy if they heard anything and she said no. Is she crazy? Apparently we did not do a good enough job so tonight we need to break something, MOL.

I'm not sure about getting the zoomies after a poopie, but we love to zoom, too! The more the merrier! When all 4 of us zoom around the house at the same time, Mom thinks we are having an earthquake!

Love, Sammy

Speaking of zoomies, here we go again! We got em happening right now. Spring is definitely here. Nobody picked up on the little song at the end of my diary. The Zoom song. Does anyone remember what that's from? It's not made up!

Come on and Zoom-Zoom
Come on and Zoo-oom
Come on and Zoom-Zoom!"

YES!!!! Tink you got it! Mommy loved that show when she was little. Anyone remember the Uncle Gus show? Mom was ON that show. They filmed it right here, 10 minutes from our house.

I always do zoomies after I do poopies! I thought all cats did that???

Zoom-a-zoom-a-zoom... Wasn't that a PBS after school show? Was it the "Electric Company"? "Hey You Guys!" Or was that "3-2-1 Contact"? They were on during the mid 1970s when my kids were little.

I guess not all kitties do Greyson but they're missing out cause it's fun! I guess we do it because it feels so good to let all that poop out. MOL. Yup, I think it was an after school special. That or a Saturday morning thing. Remember the count on the Electric Company? ONE AH AH AH! TWO AH AH AH! THREEEEE AH AH AH! MOL

Zoom was a PBS show, in addition to The Electric Company and Sesame Street. They were all after-school shows. Here is the song for The Count:

I love counting, counting,
it is so exciting,
once I've started counting,
it's very hard to stop!

Faster, faster,
it is getting better,
I could count forever

One, two, three, four,
one, two, three, four...
(then the song keeps getting faster)

My mom is a huge fan of The Count! Luv, Tink

Giggles! Tink, you're a wealth of information. We can always go down memory lane with you. We love big bird and Oscar the ground But our favorite is Snuffalupagous! (spelling?). whenever mom watches the news and sees George Stephanopolous, she calls him George Snuffalupagous.

YES FINNEY! I wrote a diary entry about the after poop zoomies once, because I do that ALL THE TIME! mom calls it my Happy Poop Run, because I seem so joyful, like, "Yay!! I pooped!" and I go tearing off. I LEAP out of the litter box and hit the ground running. Mom thinks its so funny because I have a CleverCat top-entry litter box, so I really BURST out of the box and go running. Mom used to think it was only boy cats that did the Happy Poop Run, because 3 of her friends' boy cats do it, but the girls don't. But I asked around on Catster, and a lot of girl and boy cats both do it.

I get zoomies after poopies too sometimes. I also leave mine uncovered so the Eau de Jezebel can permeate the air throughout the house, I know, I am such a generous girl!

April 15th 2011 at 10:21 pm

MOL, Jezebel you're so funny. Toki! That's how I do it too. I leap and go flying out of the box like I'm soooo happy! I like that, the happy poop run!

On your mark... get set... zoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooom!

Zooomapoo op zooomapooop... zoooomzooooomzooom.

Oooh that felt good.

What do you mean girls don't zoom after they poop. They zoom after they pee too.

I do my best work after 2 in the morning. The neighbor we share a wall with has her bed against what's our hallway wall. She's always asking Mom which of us girls gets so active at night.

That's what I thought too Colette! What's so undignified about zooming after a good dump? MOL! It feels good! I even sing James Brown, "I feel good" sometimes after I do it! MOL. That's funny about the neighbors. That's how it is downstairs with grampy and grampy. Down there we sound like a herd of heffalumps!
