Well this is getting furry scary. The arson that happened last month or so was about 1/4 of a mile down the hill from our house, near the hospital! Now there were TWO last night and they were both literally a couple of blocks away. They lit a porta potty on fire at a really nice baseball field for kids near us and while the fire department was there putting that out, they lit someone's garage on fire and almost burned down their house!
It's a good thing our friend Monster bought me that extra carrier but we're really worried now that we're gonna have to use it. It's pouring rain here all day today and chilly. Gonna be like this all week. I guess the only reason that's good is it's too wet to catch anything on fire!
This is getting awful and we can't understand why they don't catch this guy after TWO years of this. Since the beginning of 2011, they've started 24 fires all on our side of town! Can you all please purr that they catch this nut? We're getting furry, furry nervous and scared!
Our house and garage is really old, 90 years old. So if they were to set anything on fire here we're afraid it'll go up super fast! Ohhhh, we don't want anything to happen to our house or anyone else's either! They need to be caught and to stop the madness!
Please, please, please purr they get caught right away okay? Enough is enough, they're going to hurt someone or worse!
Big-time purrs!! I'm so worried about you guys! Are the police not working on this case? I can't understand why they haven't caught them. Maybe they should offer a reward for tips.
Do you guys have working fire alarms everywhere? I'm sure you do, I'm just worried.
They better be working on it! It's on the news all the time and everyone is getting nervous around here.
We do have them Monida. Mom is very vigilant about having lots of smoke alarms and CO2 detectors and making sure they're always working. Maybe she should put some in the garage but then how would we hear it? Although mom has hearing like a bat!
I don't know why they haven't offered a reward yet. Mom was going to email the Mayor and ask the heck is going on so maybe she'll suggest that. They can have my toy mousies as a reward if they want just catch these awful people or person!
Oh and I forgot to mention we have 2 floodlights outside that go on when someone walks in the driveway. Only trouble is, it also goes off even when a skunk comes in the yard at night looking for grubs.
Maybe you can get some temporary spotlights around your house, and if all the neighbors put just 2 of them up, I'm sure it would intimidate him, and make it more likely he'd be spotted.
We are certainly sending BIG PURRS your way!!! Luv, Tink
Oh Lacey, I am very worried about you guys! I've got my tuxie purr motor on full blast! They have got to catch these people...soon! This is so scary! How can these people be getting away with this and not get caught! I'm worried about all of you including your grandpawrents! I think your momma should contact the Mayor or somebody! PURRRRRS!!!!
we are purring tooo oh my this is really scary how can it be so hard to catch this person? so frustrating.
Oh Lacey, that is furry scary! I remember you writing about this arsonist last year ~ I can't believe he/they haven't been caught yet! Purring that they catch this bad person soon!
Here's a link to the news cast about it tonight! fires
I can't believe it's been over 2 years either guys. this is really poor crime catching. I hope no one gets hurt but with 24 fires just this year and many more before that, it's bound to happen!
Da's soooo skeery! You be furry, furry careful. We cats are super smart an has sensitif nosies ('cept fur Finney cuz he gots allergies). If you efun finks you smells smoke--YOU TELLS YER MOMMY, 'MEDIATELY! 'Kay?
We's gonna purr fur you so you stays safe.
Lacey, I don't like the sound of this one bit. I am purring and purring that you are all safe. I hope this person gets caught right away...like right now!
Ooooh how scary! Fire is mama's biggest fear and there are a lot of them in our area so she knows exactly how your momma is feeling. Mega purrs and prayers that they catch the idiot responsible for setting these fires and we hope you guys stay safe and sound. It would be a horrible way to break in that new carrier.
Thanks everyone! We know how powerful these purrs are and since these people or whoever isn't getting caught, we need some help before he hurts someone. I don't want this to be the way I try out my carrier either!
When my mommy was little, her best friend on our street's house caught on fire big time and everyone had to leave the neighborhood. Mom said the flames were hundreds of feet in the air. And it was all because there were kids burning tires on the railroad tracks down the hill in back of that house. Stoopid hoomans! When will dey ever learn!?
That's scary! Hope they catch that bad guy or guys who are starting them.
Purring really hard for you here too. This does not sound good at all.
Just try to stay calm. I know easier said than done, but if you start obsessing about it, the arsonist has accomplished what he set out to do: make effuryone really frightened. Mom says that, in a way, she had to deal with this kind of thing after 9/11. The anthrax scare in New York. Her coworkers were all panicking. You can't think clearly that way.
Understand we're not poo-pooing it either. They've got to get this guy or whoever is doing it soon. Those spotlights Tink suggested sound like a really good idea.
Purring very hard for you and your naighbors right now Lacy. That is really scary! It is one of mommy's biggest fears, to have a fire break out. I am a scardy cat and shes afraid she would not be able to find me to get me to safty in time if anything happend. So lacy please promise your mommy and us that you will run right into that carrier if anything comes up ok? I am very concerned for you and for finny. *headbutts*
I'm purring for you kitties big time Lacey, so is sister! Her meezer purrs are monstrous and can work wonders! If you listen really hard you can probably hear her purring right now. We don't want anything bad to happen to our friends. Please Mr. Police... please catch this bad person!
Mommy had a friend on the Police force back when she lived in NH... maybe she should send him a message about this and see what's going on! Not the same town but he might know something!
OK's, now the Catfather is TICKED!!! Dat firebug had best stop it, ors ifn I's catch him, hees going to gets 48lbs of furr and fury!!!Yous better leave my furriends alone!!! Seriously, though, this almost sounds gang related, like an initiation!!! Yous could come down heres with us ( If yous can stands all the hissing) We all will bees purring that these jokers ( Trying to keep it pg, but they gets me so furry mad )Get caught, ands gets their comeuppance.....and soon!!
The Catfather is on the right track, I think. In the little village where my folks have their business, there was a group of underage kids, mostly led by one kid, who got their kicks vandalizing and stealing from almost every house and business and even cars parked in the neighborhood. It went on for years. The one kid was busted a time or two, but never for anything major, and because he was underage, they kept letting him go. Until finally he and his over age friend burglarized a business to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars, and got caught. The over age kid went to prison; the other STILL wasn't quite done - amazingly they sent him back to his MOTHER... until the next time; now he's locked up in some juvenile center - hopefully never to come back to this lovely mother who allowed this stuff to go on all this time. And yes, we have reason to know that she WAS aware of his activities. (BTW, they organized a neighborhood watch in liason with the local police to combat the problem.)If you guys have school kids or know of some friendly school kids in the neighborhood that you can talk to, they may have heard word through the school grapevine. There is the chance that the perpetrators don't even SEE the connection between their "fun" in burning down a garage, and the possibility that it could spread to a house with people and/or animals in it, killing the inhabitants.
Hi Colette, no, we're not panicking. It's been 2 years this guy or whoever, has been doing this and we haven't panicked until now. But he's getting much, much closer to our house and my grammy and grampy is what we're worried about. Mom is also worried about me, Finney and cousin Midnight downstairs. Oh and you didn't see where I wrote that we have yard spotlights all over the place, they go off at the least little thing too, a bug, a skunk, etc. Don't know though if that would scare him off. Our garage is like a tinder box it's so old and starting to come down on it's own so we're hoping he doesn't come over here. Mom is going to email the mayor today. This new mayor is much better than the last one. That was our new congressman Frank Guinta! Whoever voted him in as congress is a dope, he was a horrible mayor!! HORRIBLE. Crime and gangs were even worse when he was here.
River if your mommy feels he might be able to look into this, then yes, by all means sure. I don't know if he could but lots of cops know each other so who knows! Somebody has to do something! Tell him all these fires are on the West side of Manchester and they're getting more brazen about it!
Thanks everyone. Blizzard, we'll keep that invite open, just in case. You may be sorry you asked us, MOL! Just kidding. Purrs to all our friends, we love you!
Oh Blizzard! You know if they go anywhere it's to stay with us! We are having better weather and birds galore. They just sing and sign all day long.
Come on down to the south you'll never want to go back. Trust me we have northern transports everywhere and they are all staying.
We are purring very hard for you guys. Very hard.
Rotten blank kids!
Tink, you coming too? I promise I'll be nice. Part of the time.
Packing bags now! Blizz, we'll stop by there on the way down, I promise.
Yeah, you guys can pick up Panda and Kringle. Blizz has been trying to give them away for a week now.
Mom has been seeing our Mommy bird outside on the deck. She has a orange belly. That's a Robin isn't it? Or is it the Daddy? We can all line up at the back door and watch them get their flying lessons. Maybe place bets on who will fly the best.
hehehe, Moe Moe invited everyone to our place the other day in her diary too! If Zach's place gets too full, we can handle some spill over! hehehe!
We're having bad internet problems right now so if I suddenly don't answer, that's why! Stupid company. We hate them big time but they're the only ones around here.
I'm sorry Moe Moe and River, I had no idea. We stay so behind in reading diaries these days. I'm sorry.
I called ROAD TRIP for CA too!! I vote for a month in beautiful NC, with moderate weather, and a month in CA for some REAL summer!!
I will even drive! I just have to "borrow" a car from one of the neighbors!
Don't worry about it Zach! We can both take in our catster friends who live in the colder areas! How about we visit your place, then all troop over to ours? hehehehe! ROAD TRIP BIG TIMES!!!
I love road trips! Tink, I just gave you a car! Or we could take mine.
I think East Coast meets West Coast would be great. You know it was just two weeks ago I was surfing in Cali with Luke and his crew. Boy River you should have seen Natasha in a bathing suit. WOW!
Let's rent a big kitty caravan. Boy are we having issues today. We just tried to send a newsletter out and a bunch of them bounced back to us, our internet keeps going out, POOEY! What's this about Natasha in a bathing suit?
Sending lots of purrs that they catch the person responsible for these fires.
I can "borrow" a caravan, and even a drifur's license, for that matter.
We got the newsletter - thank you!
Teebo is the coolest.
I seen her and she is soooo hot. But she paid me no mind, something about me not surfing good and needing a tan. Dang girl, what do you expect form a Carolina Boy! She was nice though. I sent her a crush butterfly, I think! Hum..did I?
Thanks Teebo! Oh good Tink. Something funny is going on with computers today. Hunter's mommy's email didn't go through to her and when I sent her another one she said she can't get her emails from even Catster! What in the world has Catster done to everyone's compuper!?
We got the newsletter too. Tink what are we waiting for?
We Cali girls have great tans! hehehe! That's why I need so much sun on my Moe Moe belly! I'd love to check out the east coast too though!
Oh... and we got the newsletter too Finny! Mommy just checked!
MOL, Moe Moe Belly! Too cute. You'd really love it here though Simone & River. This week is cold and yucky but summer and fall here are BEAUTIFUL!
Okay good, so far we haven't had anymore newsletters bounce back to us. I wonder if there's any of them solar flarey things going on? Lots of internet hiccups today.
Hold the fort down here guys, mommy has to go to the drugstore and pick up her prescription for her rhinoceros infection. Stupid thing keeps coming back and she can't even taste her food! YIKES! That would bother me since I love nom noms so much.
Wow, I'd HATE it if my mommy was infected with rhinoceroses!!
You Cali Girls do have tanned bellies, everfur here has fake tans right now. NOT PRETTY!
A Rhino! What? What is that Tink?
RHINOS??? OH NOSE!!!
MOL! I don't see any rhinos stuck in her nose but she swears there is.
Zach stop using Lacey's fire diary to pick up girls! MOL
He uses EFURRY diary for that!!
Your Mom would need Plastic Surgery if the Rhino was up there.
Zach is so bad. I don't think he can help it. He's his Daddy's son.
Zach are you sure your a kitty cat? You act like hound dog to me. "You ain't nothin' but a hound dog". MOL
Why do you think they call it rhinoplasty? MOL MOL MOL!
Zach I just saw your tweeting diary and ain't no way I'm getting into that!
I think that Finney, like the rest of us, fears the idea of knowing exactly what Zach is thinking every single moment! Yikes!!! MOL!
I've kept it pg 13. I left my dream about tanned bellies out.
MOL, just the idea of what you COULD be thinking is scary! I think you'd have a harem if you could.
I have a internet harem now. If you would read my tweeting diary I asked Mom if I talk to much.
"He's a tramp... but they love him! Breaks a new heart, every day. He's a tramp, they adore him, and I only hope he'll stay that way!" hehehehe Well I guess we know who the tramp is, I wonder who his lady will be? hehehe!
It's the ladies faults really! I mean, have you seen all the pretty girls on Catster? What's a mancat to do???
I know! Right! I can't pick just one River. That's impossible!
Btw, Simone. I love you too.
WTC Dids I's miss???
Has anybody read my motto lately. I ought to change it to "you hate loving me"
I think you missed a conversation about bellies Blizzard! Mostly Zach's love of the lady belly! hehehe!
Hows yous guys partying when daddy was at work??? I's missed de whole thing!!!
Finney, i's thinks yous mom tried to sends daddy an e-mail, but it was just a blank page!!!
Ohs, I'll have Panda and Kringle all packed and ready for yous!!!
Don't knows how long wees be on tonite...it's daddy's birthday!! ( he's my weight today!!! Boys isn hees old!!! MOL!!)
Just don't gets Simba ( UK) started!!! He has a hang up with bellies, but hees calls dem " mouse pouches!!" MOL!!!
Blizz, I think there's nothing hotter than a Cali girl catching some rays on her bare belly. Don't you agree?
Happy Birthday to your Daddy!
Happy Birthday to your Pawsome Daddy!!!! Luv, Tink
I LOVE your motto, don't change it!! It's purrfect the way it is!
At least they don't needs webbed paws to do anything!!! Rain sat, yest, today all the way to fri...AND maybe even sat!!! Sooo humid, daddy says it feels like when he lived in Tampa/St.Pete!!!
Mouse Pouches huh? Mom had a friend that called the lower belly "pot pie" I thought that was cute. I like Mouse Pouches.
"I'm bad, but you're obsessed with me anyway!"
Gosh, Blizzard, we're only about two hours north, and we're not having NEARLY that much rain!
I think all the rain we were supposed to have went north. Zoe is going to right about Mom and Dad adventure from the lake yesterday. That's why we missed Annebelles' party Tink. She's lovely but not as pretty as my angel.
Got a t-storm on de ways right now, ands tomorrow, dey says maybe 2-3 in of rain!!! All the reservoirs are already running over!!! It took all last week just to FINALLY dry the ground out!!! The farmers are having a fit!!!
All kidding aside, Blizz you guys be careful. Floods aren't fun. We've been purring for the people of the Mississippi Basin all last week and it looks like again this week.
Holy Toledo! Mom and her rhinoceros went to take a nap and look at all the comments here. Nothing about the fires here, all about Zach and his harem and bellies! MOL
Blizzard that was our newsletter we sent, maybe we'll have to send it again. BTW, it's been raining here for two days and we'll be floating like ducks till Saturday or Sunday also.
WOWS! You step out for a moment and look what happens! Mommy had to go mail all the toys that people won in Vern's auction and we had 15 emails for this thread alone! WOW!
I know! I had a cocktail pawty on Friday and hardly anyone was there or they didn't stay. Poor Tink was talking to herself all night. Lacey writes a diary about a firebug and BOOM, it turns into a flirt fest for Zach! Figures.
Well,at least you have readers! I have one reader, Tink! I guess I could count LACEY'S diary as mine.
True, oh we're not complaining! We LOVE everyone coming to our diaries, doesn't matter the reason. We just think it's furry funny. Poor Zach!
i'm having fun tweeting anyway
10 PM and we're hearing lots of sirens and firetrucks again! This is so not cool! Mom just send an email to the mayor. I'll print it on here if you guys want to see it. She's mad! Mom says she's going to sleep in her cloths or go sleep in the yard next to the garden hose!
oh no! Mom just got back on catster so we been catching up. Any news? Was there another fire?
Yikes. Fire trucks again. Not good. Mom was out for most of the day and when she got back she checked the 'puter. Yikes, who let all the flea back-up go at once? A catzillion e-mails all from the same place: Lacey's diary.
We got your newsletter too. That doesn't sound too comfortable sleeping by the garden hose.
BTW, I think the rain moved up north. It's been pouring off an on here since Saturday. Mom's been getting some real bad migraines centered over her sinuses from it.
Lacey, if you don't want to go to sunny CA, you're welcome in rainy NY.
Oh Lacey NO! Not another one! They've got to catch that firebug! Maybe, there should be a community watch where you live.
False alarm guys, everything is okay. Sorry to freak out. We hear sirens all the time and it never even phases us but now it's starting to bother mom and she's getting paranoid. She emailed the mayor last night and let him have it about this arsonist on the loose.
I was just talking to the Tabbies and was saying how I wonder if this isn't a fireman doing this. It does happen that they can become firebugs and since this guy is so hard to catch, maybe it's a pro. This is shoddy police work so we're hoping the mayor now goes to the police chief and kicks butt.
Oh no!!! Sounds like a show from tv! we are happy you are ok! grumbles to whoevfur is doing this!
Oh Lacey, we are just now reading about these terrible people (or person). We are purring so loudly for you and your family that I bet you can hear that over any sirens! What a terrible way to have to live, especially having to think about your grandpawrents and you and your siblings. Pawlease keep us updated and I'll tell my mom to purray too.
Ashley & family
We will Ashley and thank you for caring and being our friends. We can hear you purring! It's a beautiful sound.
How did a diary entry about an arsonist turn into a party? You cats are hysterical. I am purring that they catch that bad person. Maybe your mom should spray the garage down with the hose every night. Is that a dumb idea? I don't know, I just thought... But I don't really know much about fires.
With this group, you just nefur know when a pawty is gonna "break out". They are WILD!!!
Guys, that's just how we roll!
I'm waiting for Tink to write a diary so we can party there.
My dear Lacey, I can't stress this enough. Be Careful.
Toki, it's never a dull moment around here that's for sure. I was wondering that at first too but like Zach said, that's how we roll. So we just roll with it! MOL!
