Okay everyone! We did this back in early winter I think and it was really fun so we're going to do this again. This time we have lots more new friends so it should be fun.
We can hear a kitty meowing somewhere in the house but we don't know where it is. We can't find it no matter where we look! Me and Lacey have looked everywhere. Sometimes we think we're getting closer and then it stops.
We don't hear it in one particular place, it comes from all over the house, all different spots. Sometimes it's loud and other times it's muffled. Is momma holding a kitty prisoner? Why would she do that? And why would she bring another kitty in here and not let us meet it? We do occasionally catch a glimpse of something that looks like that might be what's making the noise but it's never in one place long enough and we can't be sure at all that's even what it is.
This happened once before and we panicked big time. It took us awhile to figure it out but it was fun asking everyone on Catster to help us! No one got it though! See if you can guess what this sound really is! And for those that played before, NO, it's not the same answer at all. Something completely different. Momma said she will give the answer this Sunday night.
Help us! It's driving us crazy and we are crazy enough as it is! MOL!
BTW, I have a thread up in the Plus Occasions to wish Apollo happy birthday! He's 17 today and his momma said he's on pain medication and feeling a little bit better. He has cancer of the pancreas so this is by no means a miracle. But he may be with her awhile longer and if we purr hard, he can enjoy many more days with her living happily and pain free.
Happy birthday Apollo!
Thanks everyone! Hope you play our game and help us figure out this mystery!

Everyfur here knows how much it hurts not to be able to poop. Well yesterday I had me a backed up pipe like you wouldn't believe! It was bad and I got in the box and strained and CRIED. Even after I got out of the box I cried and I had cramps! Ooohhh that hurt. Mom was getting nervous because she did NOT want to take me to the ER. That ER here stinks, it's no good! And the last time she went there was the night she was racing Alex there and she died in the car. Mom has awful memories of her being stuck in traffic on the highway while Alex was passing away. By the time she got there, she ran in screaming and crying with Alex's body in her carrier, she had already gone. So she really doesn't want to go back there ever if she can help it.
Good thing that my mommy has lots of tricks up her sleeve! First thing she did was get some of her 100% distilled Aloe Vera juice and mix a little bit with some water, took a medicine syringe and squirted it in my mouf (which I was not happy about and spit some of it out). Within 10 minutes my cramps stopped and I was feeling better. Still didn't poop but felt much better. Thank you Hazel Lucy for teaching us about Aloe Vera! For those of you that don't know this trick it has to be this stuff right here: Aloe vera. It can be a different brand but it has to be 100% distilled and pure. Thank you HL for telling mom about that, it really helped calm my tummy!
Well, I felt bad after that and clung to mom like glue all night. Me and Lacey slept on her bed and cuddled with her all night. Today I was kinda the same but I still hadn't pooped and she was getting worried. She had given me some pumpkin, some kristalose and still nothing! It's my floofy hair darn it! She brushes me everyday and furminates me and everything but I still have too much floof that ends up in my tummy. So she's gonna buy some sardine oil. Hope I like it. But finally this afternoon she gave me some more aloe vera and said the heck with this, I'm through fooling around. Then she gave me some Miralax. She doesn't like to use that too often because it contains polyethylene glycol which is not good for the kidneys, even in humans. So we don't use it if we don't have to. But this was a poop emergency!
FINALLY FINALLY FINALLY about an hour ago I got in the box and dropped 'em like bombs! No straining, no crying, they just slid out the shoot and I did a great big poopy! I was so happy darn it, that felt great. And mom was really happy too. She's pretty good at figuring things out without panicking. Good thing too! If anyone would like to learn about how to use aloe vera, you can to to my momma's website www.ibdkitties.net and click on the tips and tricks page. Go to the natural remedies section and scroll down until you see it, it's easy to find.
Thank you again Hazel Lucy for that valuable tip! We love you! And me, Lacey and momma are all very happy campers right now, even if the house does smell like poop! MOL! She scooped it, but my pleasant aroma still lingers.

Yes, I'm obsessed with poop. I blame Newman and Hazel Lucy for that. MOL! not such a bad thing since it's funny and we all need a laugh, pretty OFTEN these days. All kinds of things stressing my meowmy out today so I decided today was a good time to start this new game.
Name a song title, a song lyric, a commercial jingle AND/OR a movie title that COULD be about poop or pee! Not that they're really about poop or pee but that it could be just by the titles. It's easy, I'll start:
1) You dropped a bomb on me (song)
2) Plop plop fizz fizz oh what a relief it is (jingle)
3) Push it (song)
4) What goes around, comes around (song)
5) A river runs through it (movie)
I think that's enough, I'm sure I can think of more but I'll see what you guys come up with. Come on, let's have some fun now!

Today is our 1 year Catsterversary. Can you believe it? Time flew by that's for sure, except this winter which just dragged on and on and on! Mom originally joined Catster just to help other sick kitties. She had no intention of playing games, writing diaries, talking endlessly about POOP! MOL! But look where that got us, POOP CENTRAL. MOL.
Well with all the sick and passing kitties mom deals with day in and day out we quickly realized that this place was our refuse, our solace, comfort zone. We could come here, let our fur down, say and do all kinds of crazy kooky things and instead of kitties thinking we were weird, we made MORE friends. MOL!
We've enjoyed having our times in the spotlight like so many other kitties on the homepage, we've had fun doing neat stuff with our pages, and met some wonderful kitties from all over the world. Mom can't believe her luck too with meeting so many kitties that help us out with our website and helping other sick kitties. You've all helped the site grow in a huge way and most importantly have been doing your parts to help other kitties with these horrible diseases. Thank you so much for that.
There was a point last summer when we wanted to join the Plus membership but didn't have the money. One of terrific Catster friends bought it for us. I don't know if it would be okay to mention who it was or not so let's just say they are pretty well known and loved here and these kitties and mommy have a special place in our hearts for many reasons. The gift was only one of them, they are wonderful and caring kitties. We're so lucky to have them as furriends. Later on in the late fall they wrote us a nice pawmail telling us it was a great investment because we've become an important part of the community. TEARS!!! That was just so pawsome and meant the world to us.
Our birfdays are coming up in June along with Nadia and Gumpy's and I think we're all going to do something fun here so keep your ears up and listen for announcements in the future. We try to keep up with birfdays, anniversaries, DDPs, bridge days etc. it's getting to be quite a chore and mom has been neglecting working on the site and doing other things so please forgive us if we are not as good at this stuff for awhile. Mom will be out in her garden, out walking, TRYING to catch up on work on the site, and other stuff. But we'll always be here, we're hooked. Mom can't go one day without checking this place at least 100 times! MOL! It's impossible.
Mom doesn't want to join all kinds of other sites because we have a hard enough time keeping up here. This is the place we feel at home, you are all the kitties we love and think of as furmily. Thank you all for the love, support, encouragement, friendship and sometimes even forgiveness (we put our paw in our moufs sometimes, like any other kitty) you've given us in this short time we've been here.
We love you all dearly and look forward to many more years of fun pawties, incredible diaries and more poop talk (and don't forget about the flowjectiles, MOL). Have some cuppycakes on us today and drink some NON-ALCOHOLIC nippy. Don't worry kids, it's safe, no real nip in it. Those are saved for our birfdays in June.
Luv, purrs, headbonks, sandpaper kisses, and chasing tails

Hello everybody! What a fun day and night we had yesterday. Did not plan on having a pawty but it turned out fun. So sorry some of you missed it, I know it was very spur of the moment. I'm SURE there will be more, in fact you can count on it. I wish there was a better way to get the east coast and west coast kitties to be able to party together. It stinks!
I'm going to thank everyone for all three of our gifts here in this diary so mom doesn't have to write 3 of them. She got nothing done yesterday, MOL, oh well. So she's got some catching up to do today.
First and foremost again we want thank each and every fur for being our most wonderful friends ever! We have so much fun and we love that you all make us laugh so much and give us this place to escape the daily grind.
Thanks from me to:
Thanks to the Canadian Crew, Wally & family for my balloons!!! Very colorful and I keep trying to play with them but I don't want to pop them. I like the ribbons on it though, gotta play with those!
Katie Tulip and family for my YUMMY YUMMY cake!!! (he said licking chops).
Zach and family for the mouse (I've already chased him a zillion times).
Colette and family for the beautiful spring flowers! We love all the spring colors on our pages now. Hurray for spring!
The beautiful and always loved Hazel Lucy for our spring flowers also.
Our new friends Vita & family for the yummy shrimp (thank god the Tabbies didn't eat that, they ate everything in site! MOL).
Apollo & family for the big red heart (we love you too buddy)
Our other new friend Dixie for the ladybug (she's a cutie pie)
Milo you little devil for the rainbow star (he's a pawsome friend to have kids).
That takes care of mine. This is from Lacey:
Thank you to Colette & family for my beautiful spring flowers.
Aragorn & family for my red heart
Milo and family for the rainbow star
I'm adding in Gumpy & Nadia who just gave me some beautiful flowers! Thanks you two!
Thank you furry much everyone. Your friendship and love is the bestest prezzies of all!!
From Alex: to Colette & family for my flowers (we love you guys!)
Vita & family for the shrimp
Beautiful Athena and family for the heart
The family of Scooter angel for the pretty flowers
Smokey Joe (my buddy at the bridge) and his family for the star
I think that covers it everyone but we also want to say thank you for coming to our parties and enjoying yourselves! That's super duper important to us to be able to share FUN AND GOOD occasions with you as well as all the sad ones. We honestly would not be so addicted to this darned place if it wasn't for all of you, so it's kinda all your fault! MOL!
Also thank you for all the pawmails and concats we got. We especially want to thank Lucy, Charlie, Leo, Sally Angel and Sophie for giving us the wonderful gift last summer of the plus membership. This enabled us to reach out to so many more kitties both for their illnesses but to also get so many new wonderful friends and have such great times together. That was a pawsome, pawsome gift and we'll never forget that. Gump & Nadia also about a month ago gave us a gift of some zealies because we ran out. As much as we love getting prezzies, we LOVE giving them! You are all so generous and we feel that generosity you give to every kitty here, every single day.
We love you all furry furry much and yesterday was a celebration of ALL of our friends, not just our special day. It wouldn't have been special at all with all of you!
Luv and purrs
Finney, Lacey, Alex and mommy Lisa

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!

Okay, Alex just flew down here and said she bummed everyone out, MOL. So she asked me to lighten the mood, said I'm the comic relief around here. I wasn't aware of that but I'll try to live up to the title.
I'll tell you something right now! I LOVE fessy squeezes. Do you know what a fessy is? It's a fanny, my grammy calls them fesses. Don't know why but I kinda like that word. I can be quite the little stinker sometimes but the reason I do that is because I know that if mom has to chase me, I can run and TRY to hide under our S shaped scratcher. I say try because I can't fit under there anymore. Jeez, pretty soon I won't fit into anything!
Anyways, I do something to tick mommy off, she comes after me, I run and TRY to hide under the scratcher and I stick my fanny (I mean fessy) way up in the air. Mom grabs a hold of it, gives it a little shakin' a little squeezin' a little love tappin'. I have no idea why I love this so much but I do! I can't get enough fessy squeezing. I even love it when she chases me and tickles me on the tail! Weird huh? I can't help it, I'm addicted to it. The minute mom walks away, I start all over again and hope she comes and gives me MORE squishin'.
Lacey also loves fessy squeezin' but her favorite is fessy tappin'. She LOVES that! She gets on the tower with the hole in the middle of it, hangs her head in the hole so her fessy is sticking up in the air, she grabs her tail from underneath and puts her ears back. Mom starts giving her really fast little fessy love taps and she's off and running! She loves it, loves it, loves it. It makes her nuts.
Thank goodness we don't let one go right then and there while she's doing that! MOL! I have belched in her face though but that's not the same thing at all. Does anybody else love fessy squishing? If not, you're really missin' out! Go ahead, try it! You'll like it! I know that "I Like it Like That"!

Momma keeps looking at me like I'm a big stuffed furry cute animal, and she wants to squeesh me hard! Oh wait...I AM! MOL! Well I have to admit that when I'm sleeping in my wittle beddy I am awfully cute. If I do say so myself. She keeps looking at me and staring and smirking. And she says "Finney I can hardly stand it, I want so bad to come over there and kiss your whole belly, you're so darned cute!!!"
AAAAARRRRRGGGHHHHHHH!!! NOOOOOOOOO! Not my bewwy! You can kiss my toes mommy, I love that furry much. You can kiss my head, my ears, even my eyes and nose, I love that furry much too. And I espeshially love when you kiss my bum. MOL. NO! GROSS everyone who's thinking yuckery thoughts (Zach!). The top of my bum where my back is. MOL.
But NOT my BEWWY!!! Oh no, she says she's going to sneak up on me and do it anyways, when I least expect it! Why momma? Why would you torture me like that? I've been a good boy haven't I? Well okay, not really. I've already put several lovely pulls in her new curtains. I'm also going back to biting on the wires behind the television (I'm a joy to be around folks!). Mom has baby-poofed this house furry well but not well enough. Heh heh heh (as River would say).
So this is my punishment! I guess I'll have to accept it and deal with it. But it's not going to be easy. I can't guarantee I won't meow at you, punch you in the nose with my big tiger paw, sneeze in your face, burp, fart or squirm so furry hard I leap out of my bed in mid kissy and accidentally scratch you! Then I'll just give you the look of death for the rest of the day.
But if you insist on doing this, it's your choice. You've been warned mommy! You've been warned.

MOL! MADE YA LOOK! MOL!
NO! I'm not talking about THOSE kinda squirts. I know I usually talk about poop. Today that honor goes back to Newman for his diary on that fabulous singing toilet that cost a bazillion dollars! What I'm talking about is the water squirt bottle.
Last night mom caught me going back over to the curtains and behind the TV trying to chew on the wires and rip the curtains down. She thought I was long over that phase but not so much. I have begun anew! So she decided to come over and give me a little tap on the bum. If you read my last diary, you know I LOVE that. So that didn't work. It made me do it more.
Than she figured she'd try the squirt bottle again. Well Lacey ran for the hills but I absolutely LOVED it and was playing "catch the water in my mouf" like a doggy. She'd aim it at me, squirt me in the rear and I loved it and thought it was so funny. I kept coming back and when I did, she'd squirt me again, I'd stop and lick my back and run over to her and go "DO IT AGAIN, DO IT AGAIN, DO IT AGAIN!" MOL!
She thought it was pretty funny so she kept playing and squirting me and said, well at least you're getting a baff. She kept spraying me and I kept running right towards it and trying to catch the water streams right in my mouf. She couldn't believe it! She said "Finney you are a NUT".
She ended up wetting the floor pretty good and had to stop so she could wipe it all down. Then she stopped playing! Pooh! Maybe tonight I'll really bug her endlessly and she'll get me soaked! I know, I AM a nut. So what! I say, "live and let squirt!" MOL.
