So mom is sitting here talking with other Catsters, chillaxin' after putting a salad together and putting all the meat and fish she bought at the grocery store in da freezer. Then grampy yells upstairs that there is water coming in through his puper room downstairs all the way to the basement! Ugh. Mom races to get out of her sweats, calls her friend across the street and her neighbor next door. Everyone comes over, and they come running up the stairs with this big axe, open the window in OUR room and start pounding on something momma calls ice jams.
Stupid grampy, who has fallen and broken his leg TWICE as an old man and forgets that he was in the hospital and rehab for 4 months, puts on his sneakers and tries to go outside with his cane. AS IF! Mom went out there with her boots on and the ice is like butter, she slid down the stairs and lucky for her, caught herself before she hit the ground. She's yelling at grampy to get his "you know what" in the house and of course that stubborn old coot won't listen!
He makes mommy a nervous wreck. He's 83 years old and has titanium in his leg from the last darned time! Mom was SOOOOO mad! She went downstairs and yelled at her sister to get her clothes on and help her get that "bleeping pain in the butt" in the house before he falls again. MOL! Mom was really ticked! Grampy was like "stop yelling at me!" Mom said "stop acting like a bratty kid and making us all nervous and worried!" Sheesh! Talk about not listening to reason.
At least me and Lacey know to get when the gettin's good! So then mom had to run to every entrance and start putting ice melt everywhere, her sister (Midnight & Mouffey's mom) is outside grabbing grampy's arm and telling him also to get inside. Her friend Rick from across the street is also getting mad at Grampy because he's ALWAYS over here helping him with something and he has enough to worry about with his own family right now.
PHEW! Mom is sticking her head out the window here in our room saying over and over "I hate winter, I hate winter, I hate winter!!!!" So now I'm hiding and Lacey's on the desk trying to give momma luvies (which is working by the way) to calm her down. The ceiling almost came down in the rooms downstairs and oh lordy! I can tell you from experience that this would have been bad.
Momma says to tell any of you that love old houses for fixin' up that you can have this one! It's 90 years old and she's sick of it. "But where are we gonna go then momma? Momma? Hellooooo?" Pfffft! I'm a scared now. MOL.

That'll teach me to hold a poopapalooza in my diary! I had a squishy poop this morning and some of it stayed half in my poop shoot and half out. So of course I started to scootch everywhere. Mom was trying to leave to do groceries and I picked right then and there to go on top of her bedspread and scootch. Yup, I did the naughty right there! She was so mad. She had to bring her spread down to the basement and do laundry. She kept trying to leave and at the same time clean me off which I would NOT let her do. I growled at her big time and of course all she was trying to do was clean me and help me. But I wouldn't have any of it.
I managed to go back in the box and finish my jobby but my butt was still stinky! So she tried to take a wet kitty wipe and wipe it and once again "grrrrrrrrr, meow!!!!!!" Then she went downstairs to put the blanky in the dryer and almost fell down the stairs. Then she went and did groceries and came home and almost slipped on all the ice in the driveway. Boy oh boy! Not a good day for either one of us.
I think from now on, I'll leave the poopapalooza stuff to Hazel Lucy! It worked great for her. "Hazel, it's alllll your's."
My typist needs a nap now, so Finney McStinky butt signing off for awhile!

Okay, this isn't about me just so ya know. But there are a lot of kitties on here that are having real poopy problems. Hazel Lucy can't poop no matter what she does, Ozzy can't poop and some others with megacolon and IBD. Others can't stop pooping!
So I figured we could have a poopapalooza. We'll purr for some kitties to poop and others to stop pooping. How does that sound? This isn't a joke, no poop! I mean it! MOL!
Oh and we can tell Mother Nature that if she doesn't stop with the snow, we're all going to have a poopapalooza at her house and NOT in litter boxes either! Zachy, how do you like my horns now? MOL!

Whoever this Mother Nature person is, we don't like her anymore. We don't know who's momma she is but she's not a nice lady at all. It won't stop snowing, it's super duper cold and we can't see out the window to look at the birdies eating at the feeder. Good thing my momma bought us a new tower. We don't even bother going on the old one now. She doesn't know what she's going to do with it, it wobbles a lot! 47 days until spring! 47 days until spring! Hurry up and come quick!
Okay, time for alllll the thank yous I have to do for the spectacular week I had. What an honor that was and we made so many wonderful and cool new friends. We can't thank Catster enough for that and all of you as well. So here goes, we'll try to get this right:

All the kitties that wrote concats to me in my diaries, pawmails, threads etc. We made a ton of new friends and it was a blast! Wow that was A LOT! Tee hee! Annabelle just pawmailed our Alex to say she was anxious to read my diary because it's usually full of floofy goodness. I like that Annabelley! Sounds like I'm a butterscotch candy bar. Mommy says she loves butterscotch. Oh boy I hope she's not going to bite me. She's gonna get a mouth full of floof anyways if she tries that. She's been kissing me an awful lot this week. She says she has to weigh me again cause she's sure I've grown. She calls me handsome every single day more than once at a time. I love my momma! She's so good to us. And we love the catster mommas here too. You're all wonderful and take such great care of your fur babies.
Thank you all again and we'll be putting up some video of our new tower just as soon as mommy eats something. She's got low sugar and starts to fade if she doesn't eat so if there are any typos in here, or we forgot anyone, we're sorry, it's for two reasons. She's getting sleepy and hungry and she's got a big bandaid on her fingy and it's making her type weird. MOL
Catch ya all later! Stay warm and cozy and we're sending you all big floofy kissies and hugs
Luv Finnegan (the butterscotch king)

I am NOT supposed to know this but I heard momma talking on the phone yesterday so I'm gonna have to whisper this news. WE'RE GETTING A NEW TOWER TOMORROW!!!! Oops! That wasn't really a whisper was it, Tee hee. I'm just so darned excited. Of course momma is gonna have to use her money from somewhere and I'm supposed to feel bad about that so I'm gonna try and do my best Oscar winning performance. But I don't really feel bad at all. In the words of James Brown "I feel good, danananana!"
Here's another one "I'm so excited! And I just can't hide it. I'm about to lose control and I think I like it!" Okay enough of that. I'm just beside myself. So I think momma's gonna go to the store to get a few regular things and then come home and clean the floors because they're yucky and not just from us. She takes her boots and shoes off in the hall but still manages to drag stuff in. Shame on you momma!
Then I think she's going to take the tower we have in this room now and move it into the living room so we'll spend more time with her in there. Then she's gonna put the other one in here because it's the same one that River & Simone have and it has ramps and stuff. Tower
She really wanted one with like Tiger stripes or leopard print or something but couldn't find one. Oh well! We're just gonna rip it to shreds anyways mom. So I had to tell everyone but keep it quiet for now cause this is supposed to be a surprise for us. I'm a cat, I have excellent hearing and I'm super nosy so there is no such thing as secrets around me. MOL.
We'll take pictures when it's done for sure!

Hi everyone! As I continue my fun week I want to say thank you all for the wonderful prezzies yesterday and all the well wishes. And I'm thrilled that my family and I are making so many new great friends! Some of you are new to Catster so I want to say "welcome" and I promise you will love it here! We are a fun and loving bunch of kitties who support each other and make each other very, very happy.
Before I talk about my zoomies last night, I would like to mention this poor kitty Molly. Molly got very badly beaten up by a dog and she's paralyzed now and can't even talk. It's so tragic and she's not going to make it I'm afraid. So please go to her and offer some love and support to her family. They all need it badly. It's just horrible.
NOW! When my typist finally got finished with all of my fan mail last night me and Lacey were bugging her for some serious playtime. So she broke out the string and I got a serious case of the zoomies and pounces. Usually it's Lacey who does that and I mostly sit there and watch. Not this time, I was all juiced from my busy Catster day. So I ran around pouncing on that string, beating up my toys and when I wasn't doing that, I was chewing on Lacey. I was being bad actually, taking chomps on her bum. I can't help myself! I get so full of my own fluff! Don't worry, she can give as good as she gets, if not better sometimes. She sneaks up on me when I'm sleeping on the top of the tower and POWEE! She's got a great right hook.
Then we cuddled with momma on her bed for awhile. This morning mommy went to change our litter and right after she took the bag out and was putting it in the garbage, I snuck into the empty litter box and did a big pipee! Mom was like "Finney! what are you doin! I didn't put the litter in yet." SO! Out I came dripping and mom had to scrub out my box before putting the litter in. She should be lucky I didn't go in the tub like I used to. I did drop a big poopie ball way on the other side of the room too. Just an added bonus mom! The poopie cherry on top of the litter cake. MOL! That one's for you Newman.
It's still cold here, 15 degrees. The windows are still frozen and we STILL can't see out of them. No sun at all, getting more snow tomorrow. Good thing we'll be busy here on Catster because yes, we are going bananas! And not in the fun kitty bonkers kind of way either.
Momma still wants to try and get us a new tower, I don't know if she should, she's so broke and can't afford anything for herself. But we would love a new toy to amuse us the rest of this long winter and we could put our old tower in another room so we'd have two. We're taking over this place mom, face it. You can't fight us, just give in (she does anyways). I think that's it for now. I hope you all have a wonderful day and we're still working on some fun new games and a new riddle too.
This has been the Tuesday Floof report
Purrs & headbonks to you all!

OMC! OMC! OMC!! I cannot beweive it! I'm so excited I can't sit still. Even momma can barely type she's so happy right now. I am cat of the week here on the bestest and most fun website ever. Oh kitties, we love you all so furry much and you make us so very, very happy. We have so much fun! You know what? I'm thinking up a few fun games to play. I've got some ideas so when we do them, we might put them right in the Catster plus fun section so everyone can do it. We have to do something to break up the winter blah blahs.
I was about to write a diary consisting of GRUMBLE GRUMBLE GRUMBLE, POOP, POOP, POOP. For any of you that don't know what I'm talking about you've clearly never read Hazel Lucy's diary or Newman & Inky's diaries. But now I don't have to! I'm still in shock. What an honor! Catster said it was because they were celebrating floof and they picked ME! And the funny thing is that just this morning, momma changed my diary to be named "The Floof Report". What a coinkidink! Orrrr is it? Hmmmm! Plus we just followed one of our absolute favorite kitties, Kally Kat, who was cat of the week last week. She's a pawsome friend, one of the best! Jeez I can't think of anything to say right now. I'm sandpaper tongue tied. Maybe one night this week we'll have a pajama pawty to celebrate. Would anyone come to that?
Well, gotta go and get some treats and get brushed. I have to look my spiffiest for some new photos! Thanks again everyfur and to Catster as well for making my dreams come true! I'm in Catster heaven.
Luv Finney, Super Floof of the week

Oh this winter stuff stinks. It's so cold here we cannot beweive it. It's supposed to go down to -25 tonight! BRRRRR! Mother nature is not being too nice right now. Oh did you guys see all those little hearts fluttering around on my page? They look like buggies and I keep swatting at them to try and eat them. Moths are my favorite lunch. I can't seem to catch these and it's really perplexing. Right now I'm dictating this to my typist (momma) while I'm cuddled up on my snowman blanky in my warm beddy. I'm right next to the heater too. We've been cuddling on mom's bed at night, all three of us. She turns on the electric blanket and we lay on top of the fleece bwanky. Yes, all this cuddling is great and fun and all but we can't even see out of our windows. They're all frosted up! We keep asking mom for a new tower like River & Simone have. That's actually the very same one we were gonna get. I don't know if mom can do it but she's going to try hard. We need something new to amuse us, we get bored so darned easy. Mom's been trying to play more with us lately but she's been sick and her sinuses are bothering her. So every time she gets going running around with the string, WHOOSH, she gets dizzy. Lacey is a pain in the tookus! I think we're going to rename her GLUE. She might as well be strapped to mom's leg it's ridiculous. All I can hear all day is mom saying "Lacey get off me already, I can't walk!" She's tripped mom a couple of times already. And when she's not doing that, she's yacking her brains out whining. Sigh. Why can't she just be good like I am? Mom gives her tons of attention and still she has to get greedy about it.
Last night we went downstairs to see grammy and grampy and they couldn't believe how big I am. They said I had a growth spurt for sure because I'm a bear! ROOOAAARRRR!! MOL. I don't sound anything like that. I'm a big boy with a little meow. I sound like this "beewoo beewoo". Weird huh? But I sure can pound on momma's bedroom door in the morning! POW POW POW POW, get up momma, NOW! Grammy is crazy, it's going to be so cold tomorrow morning and she insists on going out to do grocery shopping. She's nuts. Momma told her she was going to steal her car keys and hide them. Those two are really stubborn, my grampy and grammy! Momma says the roles are reversed. They're her kids now and she's the adult. SAYS WHO!!!??? WE'RE the boss momma and don't you ever forget it. MOL!
2 feet of snow coming on Wednesday. I will never be able to see out my windows again. Although the weather man says now he doesn't know at all what it's going to do. Where can I get a job like that? Where I can say anything I want and still get paid for it whether I'm right or wrong? Wouldn't you guys like to see me doing the weather reports? I think that would be very Kewl.
This is Finney McFluffer Nutter, with your Floof report for tonight
Stay warm and stay in da house!!!!

OMC! We're still hardly able to see outside with the huge piles of snow from last week and tomorrow we're getting 10 more inches and another storm on Friday. Where are we going to put all this snow? That means momma will be back outside shoveling while our neighbor does the snow blowing and momma hasn't been feeling good lately. She's got a bad bug and this isn't the time for her to push herself. But with grammy and grampy being in their 80s she doesn't have much choice. She doesn't want stubborn grampy trying anything because he almost passes out every time. Sheesh! Where is spring! We're all bored!!!
So I guess that means we'll be hearing all the snow plows and snow blowers going tomorrow and Wednesday again. Momma better hurry up and get out there to fill the bird feeder. You won't be able to see it before long. Last storm, the winds were 50 mph and all the birdies were at the feeder! Go figure. Oh well, nothing else much going on except that it's freezing here, went below zero last night. We're so thankful we have warm beddies and a warm house.
Me and Lacey have been keeping momma company while she's in bed resting. We're getting good at taking care of her. She was watching us sleep next to her last night and we heard her say that it was her favorite thing to see us cuddling her and each other on her bed. Me and Lacey give each other lots of baths and kissies.
Well, stay warm and safe everyone and we're purring for all kitties that they have a safe and warm place to go. Oh and this is Martin Luther King day too so we are continuing our purring for peace! Thanks to all of you who wrote in my diary for that entry. It was so fantastic to see how many of you joined in. Maybe we should do a regular group purr for peace or something? Hmmm, maybe!
So long and we might have more snowy pictures for you tomorrow!

As one of my momma's constant bookends on the couch or bed, I sit there with her and Lacey and watch tv. Sometimes we watch cartoons, sometimes we watch paranormal shows, oooooooh we like spooky stuff. Sometimes we watch shows momma recorded on DVR. But sometimes we watch the news and a lot of times we see stuff that is just so upsetting. I'm not quite sure exactly what's going on a lot of the times but me and Lacey know enough that it's really bad because momma will put her hands up in front of her mouth, shake her head back and forth and make that "oh no" or "gasp" sound. She made that sound yesterday for sure.
When we watch the news we always look for the good stories and we do see at least one every night believe it or not. Someone ran into a burning building and saved a family. Someone anominously donated money to very needy people or someone that's in trouble or sick. Seeing young kids who are doing amazing volunteer work and bring us so much hope that the human race isn't completely hopeless. Lots of good stuff.
But then we see this other stuff. People every day running around with guns shooting other people, blowing things up, child abuse, animal abuse, on and on. I have to say that I'm really glad I'm a kitty and I'm especially glad that me and Lacey have a momma that loves us so much she'd do anything for us. We love our furriends on Catster and their pawents because they are so super nice to us AND to each other that it makes my momma very happy. She feels a lot of love through the compuper and it's something that really helps keep her from getting too discouraged.
I wouldn't want to be a hooman. It looks hard! Why do hoomans have to make life so difficult? We kitties know what it's all about. Devotion, love, connecting to each other's souls, forgiveness, small things that make us happy throughout the day. Why can't hoomans live like we do? To us it's so simple!
1) Live in the moment - the here and now. Don't dwell on the past and the future isn't here yet.
2) We take about 10 minutes to forgive & forget, if that. It takes too much energy to harp on stupid stuff. We kitties just swat each other a couple of times, sniff each other and kiss and make up. Again, simple.
3) We animals only do what we HAVE to do. We kill either to survive or to eat. That's it. (well most of us do, there's some aminals that are a little off if you know what I mean. I guess like some hoomans).
4) It doesn't take a whole lot to make us happy. Food, a place to poop and pee, some playtime, a warm bed and LOTS AND LOTS OF LOVE AND AFFECTION. We don't care what you look like! As long as there is love in your heart and we get a piece of that.
5) Most of the time, even if we don't like each other, we can co-habitate! I mean gosh, I've even seen videos on this here compuper of really strange stuff like a crow and a cat being best friends for years! And hoomans call us dumb animals! HAH! I don't think so.
Please everyfur and their pawents. Join me, Lacey, angel Alex, angel Moufasa and my momma in purring hard for a better, more loving world. We all need it bad! There's so many wonderful hoomans out there but there's so many bad ones. And there's too many of the good ones getting hurt. It's just too much. We have to change things and soon!
Thanks for listening, we love you all furry, furry much!
Finney, Lacey, angels Alex & Moufasa and momma Lisa
