Hey furiends I am that very highly coveted
Glad I saw it in my email bucket. I wanted to come by yesterday but we had more action here at the Tom Cat home. Has been a lot of action lately it seems. Some good, some not so good.
So yesterday it was a rough morning.
We all got up and Pops gave us our treats and...
Hey! Where was Toby?
Pops gets his dark stinky liquid and starts calling: "Hey Tobers! Toby!" No Toby. He starts looking for closed doors. No. Checks the breakfast wet food. No! Starts looking around, and, there is Toby, under the armoire. Looking sad. Oh my. He runs under the desk. Oh my. It is 620AM.
So we all worry.
Except Buddy. "He b finez he gotta rumblers! He gotta Poopers!"
So Pops keeps calling him and all that. It is now 8AM. He calls his friend to ask her to come over to help get Toby out from under.(Antique desk hundreds of pounds and with no leg and the other Pops is not able. More Oh my.)
So Pops is sitting there and just shakes the treat jar once more and... Out comes Toby. Like nothing.
"Oh I had a little tummy ache" he says.
Has a treat.
Just then Pops friend calls.
He laughs and says "Glad I did not have another hundred dollar tummy ache".
So that story ended well.
Then Pops spent a lot of time with Fitz the Foster.
He came up all smiling and told me: "Tim. The little guy is now coming over for a pet and rolls over and gives a big stretch and purr. He is getting socialized for adoption. A great day Tim."
Little(Not so anymore) Mr Buttons is doing good too. We are really worried about him finding a home. He is FIV and was returned to Pops. Oh My. Pops may have him for a while.
So then Pops went out with his pals for a few hours and I was all ready to hop on his puter and... THUNDER BOOMS! Oh my all shut off. Yesterday Philadelphia passed the record for rain. EVER. Wettest year EVER.
So Hi furs I am jumping on and hope see you this weekend at KCK 2pm Catster time 08/28! Part-AAA!

To all my dear furiends. I have been a bad cat as I have not come by to visit. There are no excuses but maybe a reason or two.
The old guy has really been worked over the past month or so. That thing he does during on week days, descending to the circles of hell, has been to the lower levels of late. He gets home and, well, you know how it is. He has been gone for a few hours and we want, no, we NEED, our snacks and dinner. So then he feeds and cares for the fosters and does all that hooman stuff. Trash, laundry, bills, blah blah blah. Why they do all that insanity is any cats guess but they all do. So the short of the long is that he is pooped out. So I have to do my cat duties.
I jump up on the couch and give him the double-purr paws hanging over the leg along with the look of affection that only our kind can accomplish. Then I have to go and whack or chase whom ever is causing cat trouble(Rumpus mostly). While he is getting ready for reading time in bed I do a fast patrol and rush in to my spot for more purr-therapy.
Its a big job that takes big paws. Not that I mind. He took me in from the streets so it is only fair that I do my part in this home. I just wish the brofurs would... Well let them tell ya. Never let it be said I tell tails!
So Purrs from your pal!

Well Cats I have been very lax in my posting.
Lots of busy times with kits and keeping my brofurs in line.
Rumpy and Buddy have been scrapping and this gets Pops cranky. He may put them in crates at night if they don't chill. They were running around the bed from 1am till 5am last night. If it was a work night for the old guy hoo-cat.
One of the kits was adopted today too. Mr Buttons. He is just a wonderful little guy and will grow into a wonderful cat. Pops said he is moving in with a real looker. A petite black beauty named Stella. Now Fitz and Fearless Fred may have a new couple of kits tomorrow so we shall see.
So have to run.
Miss you all!

Wow did we Tomcats have a fun time last weekend with the Koolest Catster Kitties at the Zoo! Just check out the great photos from this super cool trip! We have a few more we have to post tomorrow!
Thanks so much KCK! Love youz cats! In a man cat way of course! MOL!
So the kits are all adopted except for little Pinky! He is out at PetCo and there is an application that Pops needs to check out. If it works out, wowzers, four more kittens in furever homes! Gonna head bonk that old guy fur-shur!
So we will be by this weekend to say hello to all our pals!
Well we hope we will! Pops big puter had some problems and it took about a zillion restarts and repairs to get it fixed. He was looking to buy another one but would rather buy cat-food! MOL! (not fur us we have plenty but to donate to the feral colonies in our area)
So see ya soon!
PS Google me and you will be surprised! I waz! MOL!

Hey all my furiends!
Thinking of you all even though I have not been here as much as I like. So let me give a update of the happenings with the Tomcats.
The kits are all out in their furever homes. Seems they were fancy high-falootin Abyssinian kits. Pops was like "Yeah Sure they are" when the other foster hooman told him, but, don't you know, there they were, identical cats featured in the latest Cat Fancy! Pictures looked just like those little scraps. That was a real lucky turn having them in a big glossy magazine.
Or was it Luck?
The 21st was the Day of Bast so... We brofurs think our great Mother had a paw in this from the start. We are dutifully purring in reverence.
So I furgot the pictures of the squeeker last post so here they are. They are really fun but once they stop running they are, well, just blah in my mind.
I have made a personal vow to not be so rough with Buddy Bud. I furget about how worked up he gets. Evey thing is so serious with that cat. I was just playing box with him the other day and he got all upset. I mean come on. He hardly fit in there! I saw how upset he was so I gave it up. He jumps right in only by a big squeeze! MOL! If he had another treat he would have split the seams! MOL!
PS. Toby furgot how he got outside but I knew how. He was so upset he did not remember he was stuck in the closet. He got worked up and then he actually ripped the old cat door open! Pops was like:"Whoa Tim! You see that!" Pops fixed it again cause he is afraid if we fall off the roof we will get lost. I agree.
Have fun furs.
And be careful out there!
Timmy Tomcat Rolling into Summer with a cat smile!

So furs it has been a moon or two.
We are very busy at the Tomcat abode with new kits. That Pops is on the beam with giving to those in need. The thing is when a cat does not have a Mother they need lots of education in the ways of the cat.
Running, jumping, climbing, chasing, catching. Pops is real good at training in all that, except, the final bite. The one that puts down the toughest prey. He just cannot do that one. I myself am still trying to master it. And we had a trial! Wow listen to this!
The other day Rumpus(That is my new name for Rumpy! MOL!)was making a fuss. No big deal. He makes a fuss all the time. But this was fur real. We had a mouse in the house! MOL!
Can you imagine what that idiot mouse was thinking. Strolling along, whistling a mouse tune, not paying attention, and all of a sudden:"Uh-Oh. I am not in Kansas anymore!"... MOL! So Rumpus goes for him. I cut him off. We get him and play: "Fling the mouse". Grreat fun. Rumpus does not have much smarts and let him loose near the desk. I just zoomed around the back and chased him out. He ran by the pans and Zap I gotcha mouse.
We had him all over. Back and forth and Pops thought it was grreat!
Whenever Rumpus had him he would go: "Rrrr! Mine!". MOL! Rumpus! MOL. So finally he stopped running.
I was no longer interested as I know from previous that Pops will now take over and remove the intruder. I mean, yuck, I am not eating that! I do wish I knew the bite though! Maybe next time! It is just so much fun having a real mouser you forget to try the bite. If we were hunting fur real it would be different.
So that was it and... Oh Yeah!
There was a new investigation too! The strange box was there on the floor and I reached in to make sure there were no mice in there. I got all the little plastic bags out and Pops was very proud. He said "Very good job Tim. I know you will make sure there are never any hidden mice around here!" I was really happy!
Me and Pops have been getting along really well. When Rumpus came Toby and Buddy used to kid me that Pops had a new first mate. I knew that was not true. Me and Pops have a special bond. This summer it seems stronger than ever. I just feel very safe and happy when I am with the old dood. I think the others are jealous. MOL.
Well have to go and sneak down to give the kits some pointers for today!

Is summer here? It must be official sometime soon. Sure is warm enough. Me and Toby have been spending a lot of time in the window getting sun. When it comes out that is. Lots of clouds and rain around here.
The kits are really getting big. They went to an event yesterday and everyone thought they were so cute. We think they are not quite as old as first thought because they still are really funny when they try and catch a toy in the air. They plop over. They still have to work on coordination. They are fast as anything.
They also do not swarm during meals anymore. They were like little piranhas. They now know there is plenty and eat what they will and jump right back to play. And cat can they play and play and play. MOL. Zip zoom zing zow MEOW! Play all day.
Pops says they will soon be old enough to have the room during the day without supervision. He is such a fuss-bucket. Neurotic Dad he says. We like him like that just fine. Our Buddy Pops.

That time of year.
So the Pops comes up and Rumpy is all over him. I mean all over like sniffing and snuffing and nosing and poking! Pops was kind of laughing but I was a bit put out as I wanted my spot on the couch and had to wait.
Big deal Rump! Kitten stink! Get used to it!
Ah-meow... He is not used too and has not smelled many of Pops Furiends. The dood helps as many kitties as he can. Seems we have a new batch of kits. I gave a fast sniff. Seems like 5. Hmm. And Cookie was there too. Pops said she is "boarding". Yeah-meow. What-ever Pop.
So that is the big news. We are all settled in now that Gremmie is off at an event. She may come back but Pops promised not up here with us. He says he learned his lesson last year with the fosters and rescues bringing in them nasty fleas.
Help all ya want!
Just keep em in the foster room!
Purrs to all and to all a head bump!
