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

Well, we had one heck of a snow storm here in the northeast! Wow! We didn't get it as bad in our city, only 9 inches but we've had hurricane force winds constantly since last night and they're still blowing strong. So did you know that during a bad storm the electrical energy in the atmosphere makes it easier for ghosties to come through and visit us? Yup! It's true! They can feed off all that energy and pay us some nice visits like Alex sometimes does.
Well today we've been hearing, seeing and SMELLING Mouffey around here. And he was one stinky boy when he went poop! He didn't even live upstairs here with us but we could smell him through the stairs. P-E-W! Earlier today momma could swear she heard Mouffey's very distinctive "REROW?" a couple of times. Then when momma was downstairs giving Midnight her treats, Middy kept looking around her and then running in back of the chair the way she used to do to get away from Mouffey being a pain in her behind!
Then when Mouffey's momma got home from work, we could all smell in the hallway like Mouffey had gone poop and it was coming up the stairs like it used to. Maybe that's his way of saying "HA HA! You can't see me! I can do whatever I want now!" MOL. I don't know but sheesh! Stinko and it was NOT Midnight. In fact, we looked and there wasn't even any poop in her box down there. There's no poop in our box because momma had just scooped it and put it outside.
Whoa, we're being visited by the ghost of very recent past! Us kitties can see spirits ya know. Much easier than hoomans do. Oh Mouffey, my momma really misses you and so does your momma. It was a hard Christmas without you. Everyone missed you. Please come and visit us again soon!
Luv cousin Finney
P.S. Momma would like me to thank all of you who wished her a happy birthday. We gave her lots of slobbery kissies!

Hi everybody! We just want to wish you all a very Merry Catmus and we hope that Santa Paws brings you lots of goodies and prezzies. Mom doesn't like this time of year so much because her birthday is the day AFTER Catmus! She hates it. She says nobody ever remembers her birthday. She says she doesn't care about prezzies at all, just that her birthday comes and goes and nobody ever remembers to say happy birthday. Plus here in New Hampshire you have to get your car registered and inspected on your birthday and it's never fun for mom to have to spend lots of money on her car. She hasn't been able to give prezzies in quite awhile because it's so expensive to do that here. They raised something called taxes on it a year ago and boy oh boy was mommy mad!
So me and Lacey are cooking up something fun for momma's birthday. We have some ideas although they might be more fun for us than for her. Any ideas on what we can do for her? Lately we like to cuddle on the couch with her and watch TV at night, like bookends. My favorite thing to do is while she's trying to take a nap, I scratch on her mattress until she gets out of bed. She doesn't like that at all and yells at the top of her lungs...FIIIINNNNNEEEGAANNNNNN!!! STOP IT! MOL. Oh mommy. I'm sorry I'm such a brat but it's just something I was born with.
Lacey, well she's been meowing her brains out over nothing all the time. Stupid winter is so boring, we're kinda driving mommy cuckoo. She does open the windows a crack when she can though. That way we can watch the birds huddling at the bird feeder. Yesterday it snowed all day, nothing stuck, it was too fluffy and dry. But it was fun watching it fly around the windows. Well, nothing else exciting going on around here.
If you have any ideas on what me and Lacey can do for our momma's birthday, let us know! We're open to suggestions. Have a happy Catmus and enjoy your visit from Santa Paws and all your prezzies! We can't wait to see pictures of all of you playing with them!

Hi everyone, momma put up a new video on my page and a different one on Lacey's page of us playing with the nippy prezzies that River & Simone gave us. We really enjoyed them as you can see. Nippy nip nip, nom nom nom.
Hope you all have a furry great Christmas and we want to thank you all for the purrs, headbonks and hugs we've received for losing out dear Moufasa. This Power of the Purrchain thing REALLY works! My momma is feeling better, still having her moments but doing better than earlier this week. Two of momma's old and dear friends came over and snatched her up yesterday. They went out to lunch and to a movie and I think they had a really good time because momma came home smiling and said she had a lot of fun. Just what the kitty doctor ordered!
She's been extra kissy wissy with me and Lacey this week and we've been making sure to cuddle with her on the bed or couch as much as possible. Oh those kitty sandpaper kisses can really do hoomans a world of good. We have magic spit! MOL! She said she wants to suck in each and every moment she can with us because life doesn't warn you before it throws you a curve ball.
So thank you all again because all this Catster love really made a big difference and is helping to heal my momma's broken heart.
Don't forget to watch our videos!

Okay everyone! We know you're pawing to know the answer to the new kitty riddle. Sorry we didn't tell you yesterday but momma was a little tied up. No, really, we tied her up and made her tell us where this darned kitty was!, MOL.
We had some GREAT guesses to this and we had so much fun that momma said she's going to try and think of another one and next time she'll give out zealies or something as a prize.
Okay, so it's not a stuffed animal (great answer BTW), it's not done in photoshop (which momma said why didn't she think of that), it's not in the brush and it's not a video. Momma said she can't believe nobody guessed it! She thought for sure someone would get it right away!
Okay, ready? Drumroll...............IT'S IN THE VACUUM CLEANER! Remember, sometimes we can hear it and sometimes we can't, it's both of our fur combined and it's a whole other kitty. I personally hate the vacuum cleaner so no wonder I don't want to find this other kitty. But thank goodness it's not a REAL new kitty! Phew! We can't afford to feed a new kitty and like I said, me and Lacey are tight!
So that's the silly answer but it sure was fun hearing all the guesses and having everyone play! Do you want us to do this game again? If so, let us know! (course that means momma has to put on her thinking cap and think of a new one, oh the pressure!). MOL.
I'm going to patrol the house now and make sure there's no new kitty. Now I'm paranoid.
Luv Finney, Lacey, angel Alex and momma!

Momma keeps saying we have a whole new kitty in the house! Now, I don't know how I feel about that. Me and Lacey are pretty tight! This might really be a problem. But it doesn't make sense anyways because I look and look everywheres and I don't see no new kitty! What is she talking about? I think she's seeing miragees or something. I don't hear or smell a new kitty. Where could it be? We're not buying extra food, no new litter box, I'm confused.
She said it looks just like me and Lacey put together. I must admit, that's got to be one heck of a gorgeous kitty if I do say so myself! Extra floofy too considering we're both VERY poofy floofy! Lacey is very protective and growls at anybody new coming in and I haven't heard her growling or anything. I don't want to share my momma but I can't find this little bugger anyways! It must be very tiny, maybe it shrunk or maybe it's a kitty from another world? I can't figure it out. Anybody have any ideas where this kitty is and how come we can't see it?

OMG OMG OMG! We're back online and not a minute too soon. Momma was ready to drive over to the internet company and pull somebody over here! She called them last night and originally they said they'd be here today then last night they said maybe Tuesday. Momma said "UH UH! You're coming first thing tomorrow morning or we're calling another provider". Go momma, go momma go momma! MOL. She had enough! She was working on a new page for the website, the B12 page which is super important. She was frustrated because she couldn't do her research, etc. AND we missed all you guys bad!!!!!! Even though it was only 4 days, it was a LONG 4 days. Pretty sad but we'll say it, "Hi, my name is Finnegan. And I'm a Catster addict". MOL.
Phew, silly thing to get upset over but we don't like feeling like that at all where we can't communicate with anybody. Especially you guys! So if we missed anything, anybody's birthday, anniversary, whatever...sorry about that! We'll try to catch up but momma's now got 100 emails to go through! Yikes! Well, we had her all to ourselves for 4 glorious days. Not anymore! Bye bye mommy! She's gone back to cyberland. See ya mom!

Well you guys are going to laugh your furry bottoms off about this. When my mommy went to the holistic pet store today to get us some food, she got us some cute little balls that Lacey mentioned in her diary (which we flipped over). BUT (and get this), she bought some Tropiclean natural dog shampoo...FOR HER!!! MOL MOL MOL! I thought she was nuts. But her friend who works there told her she has a couple of women who go there and buy that shampoo to use on their own hair. They said because there's no chemicals in it at all, their hair looks and feels fantastic.
SO! My crazy momma said, "hmmm, really? okay. I'm gonna try it". Okay mommy but if you come out of the shower barking like a big doggy, we're outta here! But she didn't bark, she didn't meow, she came out of the shower saying how clean and silky her hair felt and she smelled really good. Like coconuts! Do I like coconuts? I don't know but she smelled good anyways. She said she's never in her life had hair that felt this clean, soft and silky. EVER. It's soap free and has no gross stuff in it at all. She said now she has a huge secret and not to tell anyone.
But HA HA! I'm spilling the beanos right now! You gotta share momma! Isn't that what you always tell me and Wacey Wooby? "Okay" she says, you're right Finney, you can tell them." So here's the poop...if any of you crazy kitty mommas want to give it a try, seriously...here's the kind she used. Tropiclean shampoo.
This is NOT a joke, I repeat. This is NOT a joke! (although it sounds like one, doesn't it?) OH! And if you wanna see something really cute and funny...here's a video that someone sent momma from youtube. It's not any of us obviously but this kitty is super funny. Watch it all the way to the end, you'll laugh your furry butt of AGAIN!

I would like to first thank everyone for my DDP honors, gifts and well wishes! People are just now writing me and saying they didn't see it in my diary! And do you know why that is? HMMMMM????
Well I'll tell you why that is!!! Because of this new discombobulated hulabaloo business on our community homepage where we have to see everybody's history of diary comments! Not only is it screwing up the order of the diaries being seen but it's also making it so some of the members who are very active here and are truly loved and friends to just about everyone, well their postings are taking up the whole entire page so I don't see who else has added anything to their pages at all!
I'm not complaining at all about those terrific catster members because they are bestest friends of ours and we love them deeply. We love hearing from them all the time and know we can count on them to visit our pages just like we want to visit theirs. But jeez! Do I have to see every single place they left a comment because that's too darn much! Come on! This isn't working and we're all tired of weeding through it.
Oh why am I bothering! Getting my fur in a scruff for nothing. It just bugs us that we have to go looking to see what the latest entries are because most of the time the entries that show up on our homepage are old ones and out of order! I don't know what's so darned important about being like Facebook. If it were me, I'd want to be unique and not like anyone!
Oh and also! We have the neatest new friends. This kitties name is...wait for it...Alex Finnegan/Finney!!!! Hi name used to be Alex! What a coincidink huh??? Well, we saw that and said no way could we miss out on being buds with this kitty and his family! AND on top of that, we're even called the same nicknames. Finney Finn Finn, Finney McGee, his momma calls him Finnalyn and mine calls me Finnamin! MAN! What are the chances of that!? We were meant to be buds, I guarantee it!
Anyways, thank you all for my DDP day and I hope my furriends all see this!!! We love you all dearly! Purrrrrrrrrrr
