So we kind of missed all the gift giving yesterday. Grandma and Grandpa was over and they cooked out. Here's the kicker....Zach, Gris and I were locked up in our comfy room, away from Buddy the Beagle and the computer.
(You should have seen Gris and Zach with their noses up to the door crying. Zach kept saying "I smell Steak" It was hilarious!)
Anyway, since we didn't get any gifts sent out, please except our belated Happy Mothers Day to all the furmoms out there, whether four legged or two.
For all the Moms, special ordered from Gumps Nursery.

So we woke up last weekend to chilly damp no sun days. And it's still like that! Mom says it's a blessing cause it's keeping the summer heat at bay but I thank we have been transported to Seattle. 7 days and still counting. The weather lady says we are stuck in this pattern. It is keeping the heat away I have to admit that (and no heat cuts back on storms which makes Diamond very happy) plus it makes for good sleeping but I miss my warm sun rays.
Zach said he's good cause there's still cookouts and birds to watch. Gris seconded that.
Other than that nothing really notable has happened.
Oh! I have taken up sleeping under the covers with my back against Mom. I seen Gris do it one time and figured it was worth a try. To say the least, Gris only did it a few times. I figure it was to hot for him. But I like the heat. Bring it on! Mommie water bottles are the best!

Okay so mom needs some advice,,,, she was down in Raleigh yesterday at the rose nursery and decided to stop in the petsmart while she was there. Not really looking she noticed some pretty blue parakets. She said they were really gorgeous. Now, right above them was a green cheek conure. And boy did he like mom. He liked her so much, one of the vet assistants noticed it and said " it looks like you have a bird for life" Naturally, mom isn't looking for a new pet but that little guy danced for her. He even followed her from one side of his glass enclosure to the other. She keeps wondering will he ever meet another human he likes like that again. Mom has seen many birds in pet stores and never has had one act like this towards her before. The little guy wanted to go home with her. But and this is a big but.... He has no idea what home consist of.. IE Zach and Gris.
So mom wants to hear all of the stories..... Birds living with cats, Bird stories in general, and bird advice. Mom is confused about what to do... She will tell you this, when we had our Calico Mice we were interested but not as much as you thank. So she's hoping if she does get the birdie well get used to him too.

If you would like to play the Spring game, just copy my diary, change the answers to yours and tag five of your furiends!
Five Things I Like About Spring In Between Naps:
1. Mom can't stand flies so I help her catch them. I love catching flies and moths.
2. Spring showers to ease me into a nice long comfy nap.
3. Flowers start coming into the house, Mom will always let us smell them before she puts them up out of our reach.
4. Mom starts to keep the front door open more so we get to look out the glass door...great for viewing birdies and neighbor watching.
5. Now this one is kind of ironic.I love love love the windows open, fresh air, breezes..... I love it all but it hates me! It sets my allergies off.
I am tagging:
1. Lucy Nooner
2. Callie (Green Bay Fan)
Hopes you all enjoy playing!

Short note from Mommie Chris here to the other Pawrents out there.
I cried today, it was a brief cry but a heart felt "I'm missing you like crazy cry." I was changing Zach's playlist when I clicked on Tux's bridge playlist. Free by Zac Browns Band came on and I remembered how I felt when I heard that song after Tux died. Tears started to surface and there was nothing I could do about them. As I listened I thought "God I miss you" For our new friends, Tux was my buddy, he was by my side for 17 years, through the roughest years of my life. He was the greatest dog I have ever had, and I have had some great ones. Living in a state where you can drive 1 hour and your in the mountains or 4 hours and your at the beach, you do a lot of traveling. He was my day trip buddy. So if you know the song it fits well and also just the point of them singing about being Free makes me thank of him being free of his old and worn out body. The same body that finally turned against him.
These are the days I remember the true reason I love Catster. The love and understanding I felt when he passed. The love and understanding and kinship we all felt when old timers like Baltster, Gump, and Tiger died.
It is always hard to lose a baby no matter what the age and for whatever reason, but old timers who have been with you for over 15 years is really rough. Their memory is seared in your brain, it will never disappear. I can't believe I can still to this day, see Tux in my minds eye running, with his tail wagging and ears a flopping. Or when he started to swell from the heart failure and I sat down on the ground, I was crying and was asking him if he was ready to go. And in the typical Tux fashion, he sat down beside me and leaned against me. I just some how knew right then he said "Mommie, I'm not done being your best friend yet" (Maybe this is why I adore how Gris leans into me while sitting beside me or on my lap.) Long story short, I took Tux to the vets, we got him heart meds and he lived for many more years happy and well beyond pampered.
I hope and pray that I have my "now" babies that long. So I can have so many memories of them seared in my brain.

Geez! Zach started his diary today saying he was speechless. Speechless!!!! Can you believe that and changing his name to who's your Daddy!!!! Really! Mom always says Men are little boys in grown up bodies. I believe it.
So then he went on talking about Tink and how she is supposed to be his future geriatric girlfriend but now he mentions his new retirement plan to put Tink, Skit and Calista in a nice home next door to his. Get this....in Florida! He says they can be "His Golden Girls" like he's Hugh Hefner. I quote him word for word...."After a long day of goofing off, watching skirts and playing 18 holes of golf on the course named after me, I will walk in to see which of my golden girls one the daily lottery to make me dinner. When I walk in, she will be standing there with a red apron on, holding a seafood casserole in one hand and a Martini in the other. I will be the remote holder and never have to watch chick flicks. They will just sit there and rub my feet and adore me. I will give them in return, the world!"
Now he's having Mom make him a video glorifying himself!!!!!
Can you believe that egotistical bleep! Good Lord you would have thought he just one a Golden Globe or something. AND he thanks he's the best looking cat here now! Are you kidding me! I have auburn hair and green eyes!
As happy as I am for him, I must plead with you not to egg this on. Girls I know, I know but please don't.

Okay so I get this idea from Diamond bulling us away from our wet foodies this morning. Time to rat out your fam.
1) who's the food bully?
2) who's the litter box Stalker?
3) who's the peeps lap hog?
4) who claims the top of the fridge?
5) who's the angel who just goes with the flow?
1) my fam.... Di and Zach are the food bullies, Zach is the main litter box stalker, I am the lap hog,
4) Zach put his flag on the fridge years ago and Gris and I usually go with the flow.
Extra notes: Gris hates us invading his space..... He bites if doesn't want you there.

Don't know if you guys know but we are plant nuts around here. Mom moved new plants into Zach's bedroom and closed the door. It's been killing Gris, he so wants to get in there. Personally, I want to see the new blooms myself.
Mom is posting a bunch of pics on our GreenPaws group page (also pics of the way Witherspoon prunes and mound their roses) but she wanted to share a few here. She's hoping it get everybody excited about the coming up growing season.

Anonymous come forward....be the Man I want. Confess your love, make me understand. I keep having a sneaky feeling it might be Teddy B but I'm not sure. Please tell me.
I found this poem and I felt it works for so many lonely guys and gals, out there who are alone but don't want to be. Maybe you like , maybe you love from afar. TELL THEM.
When words are left unspoken
Hearts are often left broken.
So if you want to confess to someone
Do it before she is forever gone.
If you've never felt this way before
Don't let her walk out of your life's door.
She may never come back
And In your heart, there will be left a crack.
Everyday you will remember and regret
You will try your hardest to forget
How you had the chance to tell her;
You wanted to be with her forever.
So now if you get that chance,
Don't take a second glance.
Tell her everything you've ever wanted to
She'll either say no, or I Like You Too…
A Rahman Jamal
This goes for my little brother Gris too!

Real quick note because Mom has to some internet stuff to do, I have my playlist back!!!! Woohoo!!! You should see Zach. He is so excited and he wanted to write this dairy. So we had Mom decide....me or Zach.
She said Zach is the rocker but Zoe your the one that took the initiative to ask for help. I thank Zoe needs to make the announcement.
Here it goes. I was checking out the new dreamboat studs, when I clicked on Norman Dreamboat #93 page. Guess what he had great music and it was our fave, Playlist! So I pondered the situation and pmailed him asking how does he still have his playlist. Turns out he had never erased his code when it quit working and when he seen one of his friends playlist was working again, he went back and turned his own just to see. And it worked! Now we had erased our codes so this morning when we read another pmail from him. Mom decided lets look again on Playlist and there it was an embedding code! Yay!!!!!!!! Oh yay and he is a verry good looking man! He and his family are now friends with us too.
Okay, so you know the drill......my playlist will be mainly country and classical, Zach says he's going to start doing his top songs of blank year again and Gris, lord help us all. That kid has got the most interesting taste in music. But the other kits will probably love it. Di will have her girly party music again too.
Look forward to hearing everyone's playlist again.
