Did a newmie
in my roomie
but some stuck -
I tried to zoomie,
My floofy pants
would not let go -
I tried to prance,
butt in the air -
the dangles danced
but stuck right there!
So I gave up
and went to bed.

Of course, because we live in Central PA, we are practically MANDATED to be Penn State fans. WE love them because they have a big cat as their mascot, a Nittany Lion. The coach, JoePa, should have reported the abuse allegations to officials as well as the admins of the university. Whenever a child is in danger, we as human beings are obligated to do THE MOST we can, not the least. JoePa did the least and we cannot condone that. It allowed further contact and additional victims. With his influence, if he had stood up for the victim, he could have made a positive impression on many, many people, who might have gone on to report abuses they may have witnessed. I just can find no good reason why he did the minimum.
JoePa is almost 85 years old and he has now broken the record for college-game victories at 409. He made it this far, but now it's time for him to go.

YAY!!! We are getting new photos finally!!! I only had 3 photos, but Mom has wanted to get more all this time!
Nanny(Mom's mom) came over & dropped off their camera, which is digital, Mom gets to keep it all week, so we'll be adding the best of our pics all week!! I'm SO excited! Check out the two new pics of me and two new ones of Snow. There's more coming!
Meanwhile, Nanny got to meet Snow, and, as usual, it's a lovefest between me & Nanny!! She took care of me for about six months when Nana(mom's grandmother) was sick. Nana was my original owner.
Naturally, when I heard the knock at the door, I ran to see who it was!! It's my wunnerful Nanny!!! And now we get new photos!

Thanks for all the comments and support - I had a wonderful day!!
Now, here's what's happening lately:
I'm playing like a kitten most of the time, Snow keeps me very well-occupied. But one thing was really bugging me: the back of his head is dirty!! He washes everywhere else, but I guess his momma did this for him. I kept trying to get him to be still, but he wouldn't! Finally, today when he was sacked out I went up and started washing the back of his head. Then he did something I didn't expect - he woke up enough to wash my ear for me!! It didn't need it, but still, it was kinda nice!!
So, we're getting more and more used to each other!!
Luv to all, Tink

I am Diary of the Day!!! YAY!! This is SO awesome - I'm LOVING it!!
Snow and I now play all the time and we don't have any problems sleeping in the same bed with mom. Mom says she already loves Snow because he's adorable, but she also said she loves me more now than she ever has!! It's because I'm so gentle when playing with Snow. I might bite "at" his butt, but I haven't nipped him at all. I tap him but there's been no smacky-paw. Mom knows at some point it will get out of hand, or I won't be in the mood but Snow will keep pushing my buttons, but we haven't had a skirmish yet!! We play all sorts of games, and I'm having SO much fun!! No more chasing imaginary enemies - I have a real playmate now!!
Luv and thanks to all, Tink

They had a two hour playing session - yes, together! - this morning! Tink was very gentle, not bapping, no claws out, just kind of tapping at Snow. They did that thing where one chases the other to the end of the apartment, then they come tearing back out in reverse-positions! What a riot!

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

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
