Our Auntie thought we all needed to have a good giggle...so she sent us this:
THE CAT THAT WENT TO HEAVEN
A cat died and went to Heaven. God met her at the gates and said,
'You have been a good cat all these years. Anything you want is yours for the asking.'
The cat thought for a minute and then said 'All my life I lived on a farm and slept on hard wooden floors. I would like a real fluffy pillow to sleep on.'
God said, 'Say no more.' Instantly the cat had a huge fluffy pillow.
A few days later, six mice were killed in an accident and they all went to Heaven together. God met the mice at the gates with the same offer that He made to the cat.
The mice said, 'Well, we have had to run all of our lives: from cats, dogs, and even people with brooms! If we could just have some little roller skates, we would not have to run again.'
God answered, 'It is done.' All the mice had beautiful roller skates.
About a week later, God decided to check on the cat. He found her sound asleep on her fluffy pillow.. God gently awakened the cat and asked, 'Is everything okay? How have you been doing? Are you happy?'
The cat replied, 'Oh, it is WONDERFUL. I have never been so happy in my life. The pillow is so fluffy, and those little Meals on Wheels you have been sending over are delicious!'
Hey, we need a cute clean one and a non political one every once in awhile.
Are you all meowgling now?! Our sides are hurting from all the meowgling we did!
Meowmy says she is feeling pain too...but not so much from meowgling, but from shoveling...snow, UGH!
Brrr! Its cold out there too...but we are snuggled down and cozy. And pawppy is home so we are enjoying pestering him fur lap time...but...he wants to have a different type of lap top since he is doing some work, so we are not happy to be told no...
...and meowmy is meowgling! MOL!

Happy Mew Year to all you kitties!
And Happy New Year to your furmiles!
We hope that 2013 will be fun, healthy and amewsing!
If you and your peeps are in need of a giggle, or purrhaps a groan, here are some fun words penned by someone inside the big web of the world...purrhaps you can relate to them furry well:
The Week After Christmas
Twas the week after Christmas and all through the house
Nothing would fit me, not even a blouse.
The cookies I'd nibbled, the eggnog I'd taste.
All the holiday parties had gone to my waist.
When I got on the scales there arose such a number!
When I walked to the store (less a walk than a lumber).
I'd remember the marvelous meals I'd prepared;
The gravies and sauces and beef nicely rared,
The wine and the rum balls, the bread and the cheese
And the way I'd never said, "No thank you, please."
So--away with the last of the sour cream dip,
Get rid of the fruitcake, every cracker and chip...
Every last bit of food that I like must be banished
Till all the additional ounces have vanished.
I won't have a cookie--not even a lick.
I'll want only to chew on a long celery stick.
I won't have hot biscuits, or corn bread, or pie,
I'll munch on a carrot and quietly cry.
I'm hungry, I'm lonesome, and life is a bore --
But isn't that what January is for?
Unable to giggle, no longer a riot.
Happy New Year to all and to all a good diet!
And while we were thinking upon this wise tidbit, meowmy realized that we have now been here in Catsterland for over 3 years!
Well, Pipo & Minko's separate pages actually, WeBees was 'invented' about a year later...
Meowmy gets so busy doing pics fur other furs, and letting us pawlay on your pages that she neglects our own pages, MOL! So she missed the fact that as a furmily we have been here since Dec 2009. There are now 3 candles on our little cakes, and 2 on this age we have together.
Oh well, we are here and that is the main thing.
We LOVE you and we LOVE Catster!!

So many furs sent us gifts fur Christmas! We are overwhelmed with this display of love and good cheer!
In case you may have missed it, this was our greeting sent to furs, and now we are resending it to you!
CHRISTMAS GREETINGS FROM PIPO & MINKO
We also made a furmily gift picture to greet those who had both kitties and pups, but somehow we furgot to send it out...MOL!
So...here is that one:
Merry Christmas From The Rickmar Furs
Now that the 'big' day is gone until the next time, we need to thank all of our wonderfur furends...eventually we shall get around to it, hopefurly befur next year's catabrations, MOL!
We received some mousie catnip toys and some 'untuffies' but the best part of the day's doings was staying warm & cozy on the laps of our peeps!
We snagged some yummy tidbits from the spawsial dinner that meowmy made fur us. She was happy that she was off of her work for the day...and that Christmas was not any earlier, as she had been feeling quite sick with yet another yucky cold...now she is feeling better, though she still coughs a lot.
Today it is Boxing Day!
Well, that has nothing to do with that sport where those big gloves are donned and peeps bashh at each other...OMC!
And it has nothing to do with cleaning up evfurrything into big boxes to clean up...or bringing back boxes of unwanted gifts, MOL!
Well we think it would be fun to have some boxes for us! Boxing Day could be a spawsial day fur us kitties who love to climb in boxes...well, meowmy says sorry that isn't it either!
It actually comes from a British tradition of bringing boxes of food and gifts to the needy, so that they too could enjoy some holiday cheer...though it makes meowmy ponder why they have to have waited a day...well, being from Canada, meowmy alsways thinks of this day as another holiday, but our pawppy had to back to his job, today, at the office...and meowmy goes back tomorrow.
Happy Boxing Day to all of our Canadian and British furends!
OK, Kitties, we have to go and let meowmy help the unfurbros clean up the snow...we had a storm today...a white Christmas! Because we also had snow on Christmas Eve...we have to keep the walks clean so pawppy doesn't slip and fall....

We are inviting any of you furs who would like a little Christmas greeting from us and our furmily to send us a P-mail with your address. We have s few, but we think we should update the list.
Its just a little photo-collage print...but we thought it would be fun to share them in the mail.
Today was St Nicholas Day!
Meowmy's pawrents used to enjoy that fun day when they lived in Europe...The Netherlands...but when they came to Canada, they dropped it, because it wasn't celebrated on this side of the pond...they would put a carrot in their wooden shoe for the St's horse, and if they had been good, they would get a gift...or some coal if they had not been good...kind of like our Santa Claus...but if you had been really bad you might get carried off in the St's helper's bag...oh-oh! MOL!
There would be a gift exchange, and special songs and treats.
Then when it was Dec 25th, everyone had a nice and quiet holy day, to reflect on what the true meaning of Christmas really is.
Sometimes we hear meowmy thinking out loud that she thinks we would do well here, to return to such a time as those days...
Well...Happy St Nicholas Day...and soon: A Blessed Christmas to all!

Stop coming! You do not need to be here twice a year anymore.
You are well!
Those were the blessed, sought after words that meowmy heard today from her oncologist...Happy, Blessed Thanksgiving indeed!
It has ben a little over five years since she finished her chemo treatments, and all remains well! It is now 6 1/2 years since she was diagnosed, so she is truly ready to lessen her visiting obligations, MOL!
Its just a wee bit scary to be 'set free'...but if she felt anything wasn't right they will see her in a heartbeat, thankfurly.
'Praise the Lord and give thanks, for He is good and His mercy is everlasting!'
Happy Thanksgiving indeed!
Meowmy and pawppy were gone almost all day, so now tomorrow she will be busy doing all those things that peeps do to get ready for the big feast that is Thanksgiving...and we hope to scrounge a tidbit or two...MOL!
Then later in the day our unfurbros should be arriving for the long weekend. Busy!! More laps to keep warm,and more chin scritches, too!
After the big din-din on Thanksgiving, meowmy has to go to work...for four evenings in a row...sigh...well, she doesn't mind too much...she will let the menfolk here clean evfurrything up, MOL! (We hope she didn't include us in that menfolk idea, though we might help with the cleaning of those plates, we are good lickers and washers afterall, MOL!)
And they can serve her a cup of hot tea or yummy cider when she gets home ...
So...if you do not hear any mews from us, well, now you will know why!
We wish all of our furry pals and their furmilies a safe, blessed and Happy Thanksgiving!
Purrs & Gobbles!

That's right kitties, Stinky logs!
Meowmy was in the kitchen this morning making breakfast, when she heard a squeaky sound, over and over again...
She nevfur heard that befur, so she had to come and investigate...
Um...Minko was half in/half out of the kitty box...and he was making those squeaky noises.
Pipo as usual had made a stinky log...but...this one was not inside the box, it was lying on the box door, which somehow had come off its hinges...Minko was trying to cover it up, or purrhaps trying to get it back into the box, MOL! Hence the squeaking sounds, Minko's paw pads were squeaking on that hard plastic door...Minko wasn't amewsed when meowmy started to giggle at this latest Newmie tail of poopy junk...a squeaky log, MOL, MOL!!
Neither one of us have explained to meowmy why it was outside the box...but we can tell you all, that it didn't stay out there fur long after meowmy realized just what all the squeaking was about!

With the excuse of paying a visit on account of meowmy having a birthday, today, her sister came by...now in the past she has taken her little black furball dog-guy with her...so when she came through the door, we went as fast as we could to the other end of our den and HID. She didn't know we were even around, MOL!
Well our dog-guy told us that there was no LBD with her, so we were safe on that count. All we needed to worry abut was the fact that there was a stranger withing the sacred walls of OUR den. Hrumph!
At some point, I, Pipo got brave and decided to find out if purrhaps she came in peace, or with cat nip fur us...well she stuck out her hand, and wanted to scratch my chin...um...no thank you!
She would have to wait until I decided to make contact, MOL!
And I have to admit that eventually I did...cause she did those love blink things...hey, who told a dog-lady to do that?!
Minko only got brave when it was time to get the sleeping arrangemants in order, MOL! Beds and soft pawlaces are his spawsialty! He could not resist...but then...when meowmy and her sister decided that they wanted to retire fur the night, we were lured into pawppy's office, where there is always the extra litter box, food and water...and of all the nerve, we got locked in there! Sheesh! There was not going to be any chance of us sleeping with a peep, even if it was a stranger...and no cozy spots, well, meowmy did bring our kitty bed(s) in there...
In the morning, today, we meowed Happy Birthday to meowmy...and listened to her sniffling, coughing and snorting...she says some one gave her an unwanted gift of a cold...what a bummer!
Well, she is still off her work for another day off, so with rest she should be fine...she hopes!
We helped Auntie and meowmy clean up the bed...by getting on it and putting loads of fur on the mattress, MOL!
Somehow they were not letting us get into the rolled up sleeping bag, my, that would have been super warm, soft and FUN!
And now its all quiet here again, the company is gone, and we are in our normal spots...

Finally meowmy was able to get her pics into a slide show...the pics she made of our new bed/mat from River & Simone. This was our prize from winning the contest they had where we had to name all the kitties.
We love this new bed and cuddle up on it a lot!
Thanks so much River and Simone for sending this neato prize to us!
There were also some great nip toys included. Pipo found those the best!
Well, so did Minko, but he moved so fast that all of the pics of him with the nip toys are just a blur...MOL!
Here is a link to the slide show...it would not work to post it directly into our diary...sigh...
Slide show for our new bed, the prize from River & Simone's quiz-game.
Once again, thanks River & Simone!(Sorry we took so long...)

Pawppy is furry angry tonight...
And so is Meowmy, actually. And upset.
Early this morning the swarm of workers returned here to be busy like beavers all day long...patio, 2 sidewalks and the driveway were on the agenda.(Two other sidewalks, two sets of stairs and a lot of prep work already having been done.)
We seem to be getting used to all this, and Pipo goes to the window to watch, MOL!
They spent hours of labor and hard work here over the past week or so, had just left after completing the final pour and smoothing out of the driveway. It looked wonderful. Dog-guy had to stay on a leash, because the gates were open, and the concrete was still soft and wet.
Pawppy got into his car and was getting it out of the yard and onto the outside part of our yard that isn't fenced, because it is county property...his car had been in the yard since his surgery...and he hopes to be able to use it in due time, but since all the heavy trucks are gone for now, and we are going to get a lot of rain, he wanted it out of the yard again...whatevfur!
Anyways, meowmy had dog-guy on the leash, doing what he needed to do, and pawppy was getting out of his car...suddenly there was Bandit, the neighbor's dog. OMC! ACK:(
He saw them and wanted to come and visit...furry BAD timing.
He was supposed to be under the scrutiny of his furmily and on leash, the neighbors knew what we were doing to our driveway...Bandit ran right over that pristine and fresh concrete, leaving a whole trail of paw imprints, UGH!
Pawppy about had a heart attack, he was so upset.
The concrete dudes were summoned back, but they said since there was a coating on the surface, they could not do anything at this time, it has to wait until it hardens, then they have to cut out those areas and redo them...OMC, it wasn't even an hour old...
They suggested that pictures be made of the damage and that it be submitted to our insurance...yikes!
So Pawppy went out and got some pics...
Then later the peeps from next door came and apologized, well, that may be nice, and the right thing to do, but it doesn't fix the issue...sigh...
Our pawrents had worked so diligently to keep OUR dog-guy off of it, if this wasn't so bad it might actually be funny:(
Well, we were upset, too....last night, our big kitties, The Detroit Tigers, lost the World Series...they never even got to feel the joy of winning one game...sigh...sniff...
Congrats to those Giants...we know their fans are furry happy indeed.
We are also worried about so many of our furry furends in Catsterlnd, (and Dogsterland), as they are being negatively affected by this monstrosity of a storm called Sandy. What a tame name fur such a bad witchy storm.
We are getting a lot of strong winds, and rain and maybe some snow later. Our auntie and some furends in Ontario are getting buckets and buckets of rain. Way too much.
Stay warm and dry and SAFE, evfurryone!

We are so happy!
We are a DDP!
And happy dances,
As we catabrate,
This fun-time date!
Pawppy & Meowmy went to the grocery store together, today. It was pawppy's first time doing something like that since befur his surgery. He felt good, and said it was like being let out of his cage...MOL!
We heard that meowmy was sorely tempted, when she read the local 'ad' from our rescue agency here...there were 2 brofur kitties, called Zig and Zag...they were both flamepoint meezers...meowmy was so tempted, she had to resist the urge to go and see them...OMC, we don't think we want any new furblings in here right now...MOL! We want meowmy & Pawppy to ourselves...well, that was a couple of days ago, so hopefurly some other loving furmily has discovered them! They sure were handsome dudes according to meowmy...
OK, that's 3 things we can yippee about, and yet another is that meowmy is all better from her past illness, and has gone back to her work.
Now we are all done with our yippees fur the day. Thanks so much fur all the comments, p-mails and prezzies. We will try to answer you all...sometime! MOL!
