I just wanted to issue an open invitation to all my furriends, many of whom know AnnaBelle too. She is having a pawty this coming Sunday, May 15, in her diary. It's open-house style, so stop by anytime and stay as long as you like, come in & out, or WHATEVER you can swing!!! Even if you can just stop by to give her good wishes, I'd LOVE to see her get ALL the attention she deserves! **ALL DAY LONG**
Her actual birthday is today(it was Wednesday), and this is also a pawty for jmatt, her mommy's guy.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DARLIN' ANNABELLE!!!!!

Here's a link, and I'll repeat this whole entry on Sunday(today), in case you're looking for the link on Sunday.

AnnaBelle

Luv to all!! Tink

So, I had the unique & wonderful experience of being Cat of the Day yesterday, and so many of you made it really, really special for me!! I had an awesome day, and mommy let me have my treat dispenser ALL DAY!! She doesn't always do this because I have figured it out!! She didn't expect that!! It is a peanut butter jar with a little hole where the treat comes out and instead of rolling it, I just move it back & forth with my paw so the treats drop out NONSTOP!! MOL!!!

Thanks, darling kitties, lights of my life, for everything!!!

I was tagged by Nellie and Colette Sidonie-Samantha. Thanks, I'm learning SO much about my furriends!!


1. Meow! Are you a noisy kitty or a quiet kitty?
I always make comments, but I have all kinds of versions of "prrrrp" so I hardly efur meow. When mom feeds me, I say "prrp" in a way that sounds like "thank you", so mom says, "You're welcome!"

2. Litterbox! Cover your business or let some other kitty cover?
Cover, always, cover again, turn around, and cover from another angle, just to be sure.

3. Happy! Favorite Daily Routine?
I try to get in my 34 naps a day, and my favorite is when mom is laying on the couch and I can sleep ON her!

4. Hiss! Least Favorite Routine?
The vacuum thing!! It's SO loud and it looks like it's hunting all the time!!

5. Ding-Dong! What do you think about visitors to your house?
This is the one thing that makes mom really laugh: no matter where I am, even in a deep nap, if there's a knock on the door, I assume it's for me and I come running to greet them right when the door opens!! Don't know why, but evfurone I know really gets a kick out of this!

6. Friends! Do you like other animals?
I'm a people kitty and so far have not gotten along with other animals, but we've had some short-term ones that were really awful. One kitty sprayed everywhere in MY house!!

So now it's time to tag, so I'm tagging MILO, Tigger who loves Hazel Lucy, Tiny Tot, Lucy of Miranda's household, Cheveyo, and Simon & Tony. I want to see what your answers are, so I hope you can play, but if not, don't worry about it!!

Love to all, Tink

I was tagged by the darling girl of all of us, Miranda, to play Family Tag. Thanks, Miranda, hope you're not disappointed by a short entry!! p.s. All of us who first heard your story, around New Year's, are so happy you found the right momma, and that you're doing SO well!!!

As for my family, it's just me 'n' Mom. She works with the animal clinic a block away. She is a bereavement assistant, so she is called in whenever a cat has to be put down. She is alerted by the staff when a kitty reaches the point where the vet will discuss it with the family and when the decision is made, the family goes to the Peace Room. Mommy meets them there, and they will be led through the whole thing. She explains the procedure in whatever level of detail they ask for. She asks for stories about the kitty. She prays if they want it, but basically follows their lead, and they see no other employees and are not presented with any bills at that time. The Peace Room has anything a kitty could want in it. Mom pushes a button on the phone when they are ready to have the kitty brought in, and another when they are ready for the vet.
She cries every time, but wouldn't have it any other way, because losing a kitty is something to cry about. She stays until the owner is okay to drive or someone else comes for them.
Right now the clinic is cooperating with the animal hospital on the other side of town to make this service available there, so Mom is training their employees.
In order to keep her certifications, she goes in for some surgeries and other procedures to stay on top of things. I like to smell other kitties when she gets back, but I think I'd rather NOT have one full-time!!

Love to all, Tink

1 point- Turned on the oven with my teeth
1 point- jumped OVER the shower door
1 point- Have to be put under at the vet to have an exam due to my ridiculously FEISTY behavior



Total Score (Place your score/name in your Diary Title):

My Score is MINUS 8 of Feisty Points!
((I'm adding this part:
Less than 0 CATATONIC: Mom needs to check several times a day to make sure I am still breathing. I get my way by being totally adorable. I use strategic methods like the slow-blink, the stretch-out-my-paw-to-mommy, and the trill.))


0-5 LAIDBACK LOVEBUG: You are a lovebug. You are sweet (and probably floofy) and you go with the flow. Nothing *really* bothers you and you like everybody. You don’t even mind having a feisty sibling! You are a laidback lovebug!

6-15 COOL CAT: You are one cool cat. Smooth with a touch of mischief. You’ve got a bit of feisty in you and a bit of lovebug. Balance is good; you know how to have a good time by chasing and pouncing AND you know how to have a good time by being a mellow kitty and just hanging out. You are a cool cat!

16+ CRAZY FEISTY: You are a nut. A cheeky little monkey! Crazy, feisty, the talk of the town! Chasing kitty sisters, demanding your human feed you NOW, eating your mom’s favorite pair of shoes, turning on the oven with your freakishly strong teeth just because you can! The world is your playground and you’ll try anything once (or twice). If your human can handle the shenanigans of a CRAZY FEISTY kitty cat, all is good! If your human cannot handle the shenanigans, wait until she leaves for work to get crazy and then blame it on your sistercat when your human comes home! You are crazy feisty (and a whole lot of mischievous fun!)!

Any kitty that wants to play is invited! Feel free to tag friends to find out just how feisty your friends are! I’m tagging:

Just some of the greatest girlkitties in the world!!! Have fun playing, and don't worry about it if you can't!! Luv, Tink

Of course, Catster threw in a random space just before publishing that makes the link not work. Mr. D has been missing since 8/3, a long time!! Please say a purrayer and light a candle with this link: (note: the link has absolutely NO blank spaces and the group name for the candles is MrD, no periods or spaces. It has 22 candles already)

Candles for MrD

Thanks! Luv, Tink

We are taking SNOW, one of Panda's Babies, for sure!! We will get him sometime in Sept!!!

Please, efurbuddy, keep thinking seriously about taking one of the babies. It's getting to be time, September will be here before we know it, and they are having trouble with getting them placed. We know that Catsters are the best pawrents, so OF COURSE that is the best way to go. Please, this daddy will have 6 adult cats in a small apartment, and he just added Panda in April, when she was pregnant. All he wants is to know for sure that they are all right!!
I also hate to ask people who have recently lost one of theirs, but I will if I have to!

Here is a link for all of Panda's Babies:(hope the links work!!)

Getting to Know You Tag

I'm taking the challenge from Blizzard to play this game!!

1. Do you wear a collar? If so, what color?
I always wear a collar, but scratch my neck a lot, so I go thru them quickly and usually get a new color every time. Right now it's aqua.

2. What kind of food do you like?
I will eat wet but I prefer the crunchy

3. What are your favorite treats?
Whisker Lickin's, but crunchy only


4. Do you have a Valentine or a significant other?
Finney was my first valentine, and Zach is my Future Geriatric BoyFurriend when we're old.


5. Do you get table scraps?
No and I don't like ANY people food, not even fish or chicken!

6. What is your favorite toy?
Mini mice - I flip and bat and throw them with my front paws and occasionally one hits mommy in the face.

7. When is your Birthday?
We don't know, but we think it's late spring.

8. How many times a day do you eat?
Palmful of treats first thing in the morning, then 1/2 can of wet food during the evening news. I really just like the attention from the act of being fed. I also have a dry-food toy dispenser down all the time so I have to work for it.

9. Do you have a favorite color
Green, but I also like navy & black because my hair shows up well on them!

10. Do you have any siblings? If so, do you like them?
I DO NOW!!! Snow, Panda's all-white boy, is coming soon to be my little brofur!!

I am not tagging anyone; if you are reading and would like to
play, go for it! It's an easy game, cut-paste-answer!! Have Fun!! Luv, Tink

There's nothing like words of wisdom to make us think that everything's gonna be all right after all!! Here's an example:

Desiderata

Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant, they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let not this blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism. Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass. Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.

Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore, be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be. And whatever your labors and aspirations in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams; it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful.

Strive to be happy.

--- Max Ehrmann, 1927

This has gotten mom through some really tough days over the years, so we wanted to share it with you.

Love to all!! Tink
