We have some missing friends. Some are working some are just busy living life and some we have no idea where they are. I can tell you this I'm really starting to get worried about Pumpkin, Oreo, Willow and Missy. A month ago we just figured they were busy but now we are really concerned.
Have they left us? Anybody know? Mom asked their Mommy if she had a lot of friends to help through the rough patch she was going through and she said yes. I hope she's okay.

First let me send out special Thanks to Presley and sister and Anna and family for helping us get wings for Tux. Thank You Thank You Thank You!
Turns out Tux got his wings from a dog called TedEbear. Imagine, the same name as our best (good looking) buddy Teddybear. Cool!
Now we thanked TedEbear and he said anytime we want another one to let them know. He has a sis here named Jada that Diamond has talked to before.

Mom added the dates but TedEbear did an excellent job.

I've got to say, our Cat of the Day is especially handsome to me. His name is Toby.
He was my Valentine this year. He's so cute. But very very busy. We just grew apart. But I will always think fondly of him.
Congrats Toby. He always has a great looking page. His Mom is like mine, just loves decorating!
The famous animated wing maker, Willow is the one who made Tux's animated wings pics. She didn't just make one....she made three! How awesome is that. We were so lucky our friends contacted her about doing the pics.
Mom says she could ever Thank our friends enough!
Mom thought long and hard about whether to give Tux a Halloween page or skip this year. She decided to give him a nice Halloween page simply because he used to love watching kids come to the door (at my house).
Mom did Gris's page today too. Tonight, she'll do Diamonds.

Mom went to see her Doc today and got great news. She got a clean bill of health. She's not borderline diabetic for right now, so that's good. Mom knows one day she won't be able to bet it but today they checked her blood sugar and it was 91! Good going Mom! As long as she can maintain her blood sugar she shouldn't have any problems. Her cholesterol was great too. Doc gave her Cipro to take to get rid of the infection that has settled in her glands, chest and ears. Mom said she's so ready to feel better.
Now, Lucius. Our guest for the week. We were told he can't jump but the docs don't know why. Well, there's something fishy about that dog. He can't jump up but we have seen him do it several times sense his Daddy dropped him off. Mom is convinced that he is doing it for attention. That some time he figured out that his Dad will pick him up and love on him if he just stands there and whines. Mom says dogs are great con artist. She has been telling Brent he needs to spend more time with his dog for awhile now. She also says you can tell he does have a slight back problem but mostly it's an emotional thing. Remember when he wasn't eating back in the early spring, Mom thought it was emotional stress then.
If dogs are con artist what are we?

Not that we thank any of our friends need to know this, we all have such good kitty Mom's and Dad's but Mom says a refresher course is always a good thing. Mom also says she finds herself telling friends what she read in the Dogster and Catster newsletters all the time. She's even forwarded one or two. So something in here might be helpful to a friend.
So just to remind you
Thanksgiving safety for kitty cats
There's also a Turkey Goblet recipe just for kitties in there, but it has some bad ingredients for us kitties so don't pay attention to that. But Mom said the carrots and Turkey giblets are just fine for us.
Finn and Lacey, thank you so much for keeping us straight on the recipe. That really is the reason we love you, cause you truly care about our health.
14 days away! And oh, don't even get me started on Black Friday!

Wow! What a day yesterday turned out to be. Where do I start? First the storm...a F2 touched down about 20 min drive from here if you take the highway. It made an 8 mile path of destruction. Look at it this way Mom had two friends at work who was out today to clean up and meet with insurance adjusters. Have we seen bigger yeah. An F4 hit our city just two years ago. Sadly to report there has been two deaths..a grandma and grandson. We are purring for the victims of all tornadoes set off by these storms.
Second our grandma and grandpa called Mom yesterday while she was at Home Depot buying potting soil and some new rose pruners, sorry just had to throw that in there- (Mom got a new gorgeous rose bush last weekend. It's the flag ship rose of Mom's favorite Rose store about 40 min. away.pic of the rose) Anyway, they wanted to stop by the house. Guess what they surprised us with? Yep, a doggie. He was still doped up from his grape removal surgery but boy was he cute! Buddy the Beagle
Buddy and Diamond
Mom is kinda worried about one thing, it looked like he tried snapping at Gris but with him not feeling good it's possible that was the reason for his reaction. When he comes over this weekend Mom will keep an eye on him.
Did I tell you Diamond spent most of the day stuck under the bed? The really really hard rain scared her. The news said we got like 2.6 in of rain yesterday.
And one more thing. It was Dad's 44th bday. So, Brent came over with a nice watch for his Dad And Grandma D came by and started brow beating Dad into saying wither he was going to go to his uncles house for Thanksgiving or not. It was really funny. Ps the uncle lives 2 hrs away. But Mom said we need to go cause we haven't been there in awhile.

First and for most Thanks M for picking my diary today. Thanks everyone for my preezies! I love them all!
Second, Sleep and crew, I used to tell my dreams in my diary. Maybe I should start doing it again.
Now onto my Thanksgiving rant. As you know Thanksgiving is for giving Thanks.
I'm thankful for....
2) for the thankless job of of taking care of these rowdy guys around here.
3)that I'm the one that has to tell Mom that we are out of water or food.
4)that I'm the one that has to let her know that she's getting slack on her cleaning the litter box duties
5)I'm the one to growl out a warning when someone is at the door
6)for having to be the one to love on all strangers and dogs that come in the house. A southern belle knows how to be truly welcoming, it's our duty.
7)And most importantly, I'm the one that has to keep Zach grounded when he gets to big for his britches.
You know what, I wouldn't want it any other way! I love my family and their messed up personalities. I especially thankful that Diamond is here or I would be outnumbered. MOL!
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and found a lot to be Thankful for!

Any advice will be appreciated. Mom just doesn't know what to do.
Mom has been noticing a tension around the house. Everybody seems to be skiddish, especially Gris and Diamond. Last night, Gris popped me in the butt playing when I was squatting down doing something, don't remember what. Well, I yelled "Ouch that hurt" Zach got it wrong and attacked Diamond, smacky pawed her a couple times. Guess what it just happened again. Gris and Diamond both were laying on the bed with me. Gris stretched with his claws in my knee. Again being surprised by searing kitten claws going through my flesh I said "Ouch Gris!" Here comes Zach, pops Diamond a couple more times. Hate to admit it but I lost my temper with Zach this time. I love how he is protective but he can't get it through his thick skull that it's not Diamond hurting Mommie.
This needs to change because Diamond already is an easily stressed doggie.
I could see it now, somebody breaks in my house, Diamond is biting them, I am screaming, and Zach attacking Diamond! This is not a new problem but I thank it has gotten worse with Gris here. What can you do with an overly protective cat?

Mom is testing out a friends Bose set for the laptop cause she's thanking she wants to upgrade. Dad said he would get her set for Christmas if that's what she wants. Now you know how we are big music heads. We listen to music every night while on here.
So, anyway, she plugs in this set of speakers that is like the bomb in the speaker world and she goes to playlist. But it was still quite. She was at a loss, she had no idea what to listen to. I asked her, Mom whats wrong. Mom said she wanted to hear the perfect song on the first try. Guess what she picked? Fireflys by Owl City. I love that song, it made me thank about the jar of fireflys I gave Milo. Mom says the song just makes you want to walk barefoot through some cool baby grass.
Then she hit Mandolin Rain by Bruce Hornsby and she danced with me! Me! Can you believe it! Two years ago I wouldn't even let her pick me up. Now we are dancing, like her and Zach does and Dad and Diamond does. Yes dad picks that 50 pd dog up and dances with her. About somewhere through the second verse I was ready to get down but I hope she dances with me again.
She decided the speakers was most definitely worth the money but still not sure if she doesn't want some shiny trinket from their jewelry store or an Etsy store. She wants a pendant with Diamonds or fake Diamonds in the shape of a paw. If anybody knows where to find this pendant let us know please. She seen a cheapy version of this last Christmas and bought it. She loved it but it lost it's shine.
Oh and Zach is showing his true colors. Mom thanks the green monster has jumped on his back. See Diamond is Mom's Velcro dog.
She is always beside Mom. Well, Zach went to lay on Mom's lap but of course she had the sudden urge to pee. So she got up, here comes Diamond right behind her. Zach gives Diamond that cross eyed look Mom told him to go to his room. He went. Then he stuck his head out and she told him to get back in there. Could it be there's just not enough loving for him after Diamond, Gris and Me. He's not going to have attitude with me cause I want allow it and Gris is the spoiled baby that can't do wrong in Zach's eyes. So that leaves Diamond and she is in all fairness an outsider to our little kitty world.

So,Saturday Mom came home from work and she ran to get our tree. At 3:37 she realized she forgot to take me to get my picture taken with Santa Paws. So we rush over to Petsmart. Good thing we live around the corner, 4 min. ride tops if you hit the lights wrong.
After getting slung around in the car, I then had a close and counter with a rott. Spooky! He was so big! Then because Mom didn't want my harness in the pic she left it off. Was this smart? No. Within five steps of the door I slipped out my collar and ran to sniff the butt of a very handsome Pit. His Mom joked about us knowing what to do. My Mom was trying not to panic as she grabbed me to put my collar back on. I know sometimes Mom wonders to herself why she takes me anywhere. Mom says me in Petsmart is a crap shoot. You never know how I'm going to act. There was probably 20 doggies there.
Mom finally figured out where Santa was. I waited till a big shy Golden Retriever got his picture taken and then it was my turn. I sniffed, and sniffed and sniffed some more! The teenager with the camera was asking if I was shy. Then Santa said he was peed on earlier. What???!!!! Somebody peed on Santa! It's coal for them! BOL! I jumped up on the seat with Santa but then Mom left me! Where you going Mommie??? She then got behind the teenager and started squeaking the toy. What the heck was that supposed to do? Anyway they took 6 or 7 shots.
Mom picked one and then we had to walk up to the front to pay them walk back to the back to get my pic. The pic they gave me was not the one Mom picked. She looked for the one she wanted on the camera and it was gone! So she took the one they had. As soon as we got in the car Mom said "Teenagers!"
Mom said we would go back this Saturday with either Buddy, CS or Lucius. She said it would be so cool if we all would get a good shot together. She also said "Fat chance". Man what a ugly clan we would be. Heehee.
Oh! And before we left I got nose to nose with an English Bulldog. I started to growl. Mom kept pulling me back saying "that's not her, that's not Harley" She knew that dog scared me and that was proof. All the dogs that was in there. Little dogs in carts, a big big big grey Pit named Sarge He probably weighed 85 pds easy, a little girl dog with red bows in her hair just dogs everywhere and I minded my own business till I seen the Bulldog.
PS- I embarrassed Mom by pooping in the parking lot. BOL!
