Hello all you wonderful friends! As most of you already know there will be no party for Finney tonight due to my mom's recent loss of 2 relatives. One on Wednesday and another on Thursday. Quite a shock and everyone is still reeling. We wanted to let you know that we've rescheduled Finney's party for next Saturday the 25th which is also our Michael Jackson party. It'll be twice the fun this way! We'll be playing all kinds of MJ songs and also a lot of Janet Jackson too (cause she's pawsome). Believe me we'll need to party and have fun after this week and the coming week.
Mom has 2 funerals to go to now. If they were more like the ones the Tabbies have (an Irish wake and celebration of life), it wouldn't be so bad at all. Mom says she's been to a few really beautiful and uplifting funerals and a couple of ones that were parties. She says THAT'S the way to send someone off! Anyways, save that date and please, please, please try to make it because by then we will REALLY need some friends to help us party and have a good time, which we intend to do. Thank you all for the prezzies and special thoughts of prayers and kindness to all of us, myself, Finney and Alex. Later this week when everything is over, we'll say our special thank yous to everyone. Just know that we are receiving them and reading them and they mean so furry much to us. Okay mommy wants to talk now.
Hello everyone, thank you again for everything. Barring anything else happening (god help us), the party will go on next Saturday along with the MJ party! I promise it will be a great, great time. We'll all need it by then for sure. I also want to let you all know I'm doing okay. I know that some of you are terribly, terribly worried about me and I know it's mostly my fault because I'm an emotional person. But trust me, this is far from the first time I've lost someone and I am going through the normal grieving process. I'm not hysterical and making myself sick, I'm eating okay and getting rest. I know because of my health problems many of you are concerned about that and you don't know how much that means to me.
So I want to you know I'm okay, please don't worry. I'm very, very sad, but okay. I'm going to work in my garden today, go to the shelter to drop off some food, and just chill. It was just Wednesday that one passing happened and Thursday for the other, so it's still extremely fresh and I have to go through this process. You are all WONDERFUL and LOVING and I don't know what I would do without any of you and I hope I never have to find out. Please know that from the bottom of my heart you are all not just "virtual friends" to me, you are my lifeline. Friends that not only need me, but will be there for me if I need them. That's the best feeling in the world.
The saying is true, you can measure a person's life by the number of true friends they have. Both of those people in my life had MANY friends and we are devastated for ourselves because we don't get to share in their laughter anymore. But we are so much more full in our lives for having known them. And I feel the same about all of you. I'm on the poor side financially, but friend wise and love wise, I'm as rich as they come! This song resonates with me right now so I thought I'd play it for you all:
100 years to live

Oh lord. Here we go! There's one thing about the state of NH that's both terrific and terrible! POLITICS. Right now there are a zillion news crews, protestors, supporters, and most of all politicians (BLECH) literally 5 minutes from our house having their first debate. Now mind you, when mom was a restaurant manager and a writer for the local newspaper, she kinda liked it cause she made a TON of money from them holding rallies and meetings at her restaurant. She also got invited to all kinds of stuff and met a lot of people.
So this is just the beginning and for the next year and a half we'll be clobbered here in Manchester with this stuff and that's all we'll see on our local tv. NH and especially Manchester is a HUGE political place since we hold the primaries here. Oooohhhh, the same commercials over and over and over a bazillion times until we want to throw up! The yelling, the screaming, the fighting. I think we're gonna have to watch a lot of Scooby Doo, Tom & Jerry, Loony Tunes, our favorites. At least they won't have those things on (I HOPE).
I want to say thanks also for the prezzies I got for my party that wasn't my birthday yet, MOL! Thanks to: my Gumpy Goo of course, to Mr. D, Kaci Sunshine & family, Sleeper & Samhain (two really fun partiers I might add), Teebo, Callie & Rose, Annabelle & family, Keisha & family, and Tasha. Please if you've already come to the party and got me prezzies, don't spend anymore zealies Friday when it really IS my birthday! You already did enough okay? Just come to Finney's party and that will make me happy. Of course if you WANT to I can't stop you, MOL! *giggles*. Just kidding, I only want you all there with us having a good time.
Anyways, thanks again for the pawsome party cause boy oh boy was it fun!!! We loved that a lot of our new friends came. You guys really know how to shake it!!! MEOW!!! Love you all!

Well, mom really did it this time! Screwed up our birthdays. Can you believe that? I mean REALLY! How embarrassing! You would think she'd know her own baby's birthdays but no, can't even remember that right! Jeez, I can't show my face I'm so mortified! Well, I hope all you furs don't have too bad of a hangover. We do! MOL! It was a furtastic pawty regardless of WHO'S birthday it's supposed to be. And next week even though it's technically really my birthday, we're gonna have Finney's party. Got that? MOL, me either!
Lacey's mom here: blame it on my colossal migraines or something, I don't know! I cannot believe what a giant boob I am. Oh well! I want to thank everyone for celebrating Lacey's big day (which really wasn't but still will be). What a great time and it was wonderful seeing all her friends here to celebrate with her. Sorry for the boo boo and we hope to see you all next week for Finney's party even though his birthday is today. Got that? Me either! LOLOLOL.
MOM! I think you've been in our nippy supply! Seriously!
Oh well! Thank you to everyone who came yesterday and I'll be saying thanks for the prezzies and stuff later on when we're out of our stupor. It was the best birthday bash ever! Love you all!
Your friends, the goofball family MOL

Okay kitty poohs! It's official. This is going to kill us but we're going to have 3 parties! Next Saturday the 11th is my birthday party, which will begin at around 6:30/7 pm. I'm starting it at that time so we can all don't party our brains out and then it dies out before any west coast kitties get there. Also you'll notice all these parties are on Saturdays so no one has to get up for work (well hopefully no one).
We're going to have it outdoors with Japanese lanterns, some sushi, other party stuff and of course lots of dancing and even some games. I've already changed the scenes on my profile page to match. Finney's is the 18th and on the 25th we're having a Michael Jackson party!
Bring your friends and get lots of sleep the night before, MOL. We'll send out another reminder this week but also don't forget to UNCHECK the notifications box if you don't want to receive 1,000 emails because it will happen!
Here's a little something to get you all ready. I guess this is about me! MOL
Party all the time

Know why my new picture on my page is raining? Cause I'm crying cause we missed Gump's big day. Furry upset! Mother nature sure is a meanie in so many ways. She should never have made that big tornado thingy and hurt all those people and animals! AND she made us run up and down the darn stairs to the basement! DRAT!
Anyways, that's just a vent, not what I need help with, MOL. What I'd like to know is this. My birthday is on the 17th of this month and Finney's is on the 12th. Should we have each a separate party or should we combine them? We'll have the parties on Saturdays cause mostly we never get to see any west coast kitties if we have it on the week day and night.
AND don't forget about our Michael Jackson party we are having on Saturday the 25th of this month, which is the anniversary of him leaving planet earth for somewhere else. That is for SURE. So what should we do about our birfdays? Do you think we should have 2 separate birfday parties so we can both have our special days or will that be too much partying? 3 from us in one month. Let us know okay? We need to make a decision soon.

Here's an article about 2 of the deadliest tornadoes we've ever had in New Hampshire. One was just in 2008. NH tornadoes. The 2008 one was actually being studied by scientists for years because of how long it stayed on the ground and how long it was: tornado path.
Here are actual pictures of the damage from that tornado. The town where it hit is only about 30 to 35 minutes away from our house. pictures of damage
The damage in Massachusetts isn't that far from us in southern NH. Here in New England our states are small and close together. It doesn't take long to travel over the border like in the midwest. This, for us, is too close to home.
Though we were under tornado warnings all day and evening yesterday, we were extremely lucky and cannot convey that enough! We are so saddened for the losses and devastation they've suffered there. We're purring and praying for everyone in those affected areas and can only imagine what you're going through.
If anyone here on Catster is from Monson, Sturbridge, Springfield Mass. and all of those affected areas, we pray that you and your family are alright.

OMC!!! Mommy just now got a storm warning in her email from our local weather that there's a tornado watch until 8 pm right in our area! What the heck is going on? We never get tornadoes here! Oh man, that's scary stuff. Now I feel like you guys all do. Mom says she's going to get the carriers out just in case. But we have a really sturdy basement so if we have to, she can bring us down there. Grammy will lose it! She can't even take hearing a small clap of thunder.
Wow, such weird weather, this is not usual for us. But in the last couple of years it's getting more and more so. So I hope our power doesn't go out and we don't miss my sweet Gumpy's 17th birthday pawty! I hope not, we will be so bummed!!! So just in case, if you don't see us there right away or at all, the power might have gone out. Doesn't usually happen here, we're on the same power grid as the hospital down the road so it's pretty rare we lose any power.
Me and Finney have started eating better again, although right now it's super humid and mom is gonna put the a/c's on. But the weather is gonna cool way off starting tomorrow so we'll be better. Finney does have a little bit of brown boogies in his nose but not much. Mom's been giving us lysine and vitamin B12 so that's really helping.
Gosh everyone, I'm furry nervous about this weather! Jeez! What next! Thank catness our wonderful friend Monster got me a new carrier as we only had one before. Our Catster friends are the BEST in the world!!! Mom feels so much better knowing if anything happened she wouldn't have to scramble as much.
Well, hopefully we'll be around for awhile, the sun is out right now and not a cloud in the sky. But you guys in tornado country know that means nothing! Sending out purrs to any of you also that might be in this area! Hunter! I hope your mommy is reading this!!! Hunter only lives about 30 minutes from us.
