Six Things I Hate

July 29th 2008 8:15 am
[ View A Comments ]

I was tagged by my good friend, Milagrito to list 6 things I hate. They are:

1. Company! I do not like people in my house that don't live there. I usually hide for a very long time.
2. Aluminum Foil! Yikes the way that stuff sounds when it gets ripped off the box. It sends me running.
3. Plastic garbage bags! Same as foil for me- just not liking the sound when they get opened or shook out.
4. The Doorbell! It means company has arrived.
5. Landscapers! They have the noisiest mower and weed eaters that I have ever heard. They also yell a lot.
6. Cat clothes, hats, fancy neckwear, etc.! We are cats, not kids. If I am sleepy then maybe my mom can get a pic of me wearing something but never think I like it, OK? Nope not me. It's not anything a cat should allow to happen.

I am tagging any of my furriends who feel like doing this list. I know we get lots of tags so I am not going to name any cat in case you don't want to do it. I hope some will though.

Purrs,
Ethan

 

The Groundhog's Flower Garden

Some of you will remember when we had the groundhog living in our yard and digging a tunnel by our house. He was moved, came back and now lives elsewhere again. But this Spring we got some really nice surprises left by the groundhog. He made a small flower garden it seems. It had sunflowers late last year and now we have a few daffodils and one very pretty bright pink tulip. A few years ago my mom had planted the tulips in our front yard. They were all dug up and disappeared. We suspected a chipmunk was the culprit. Somehow the bulb must have been dug up from the chipmunk's home under the ground and replanted by the groundhog. It might be the best tulip in the whole world. That is because it reminds me of that groundhog. I really do miss him.

Grumpy Frog Sighting!

For all of Grumpy Frog's fans (and he does have some)- today he was spotted by the pond! Well I guess I should say he was heard before he was spotted. MOL! My mom had just opened the front of the sunroom so we could look at the pond and hear the waterfall too. That is always such a nice thing in Spring because you know the cold weather is drawing to a close. After she opened the window she opened and closed the screen just to get it moving a bit. Grumpy Frog did not like all the racket around his peaceful pond. So he started grumping at us. He is really loud and really big this year! He's out sunning on the rocks as we type this. I am so glad to see him and know he is well and grumpy as always. :)

Green-eyed Monster

You probably thought I was going to write about myself with that subject title. MOL!! I am not even going to write anything about jealousy. But I am going to write about all the green stuff in my house about now. It's everywhere! We do kind of get into St. Patrick's Day pretty good. Mainly because it is Louis's birthday. But my mom likes a lot of Irish things. Or has an interest in them like the Titanic. It was an Irish ship after all. My song on my page is actually the stearage dance from the Titanic movie. My mom even owns a piece of coal that went down on the real ship. I guess the expedition that was inspecting the wreckage of the ship brought up a lot of the coal from the ocean floor and sold it to help fund the expeditions. And we have one little piece. Mom also likes Notre Dame college (Fighting Irish) and especially our Cleveland Browns quarterback, Brady Quinn. You see he went to Notre Dame. :) Plus she says he is a really nice guy. Anyway I just wanted to talk about Irish stuff today. We have green decorations on all the doors, windows, tables and just about everywhere. Even my eyes! MOL! (OK so those are always green.)

Wishing you a rainbow
For sunlight after showers—
Miles and miles of Irish smiles
For golden happy hours—
Shamrocks at your doorway
For luck and laughter too,
And a host of friends that never ends
Each day your whole life through!

Top O' the morning,
Ethan

I have been tagged by Punkin. Here are the rules of the game! Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Cats who are tagged, need to post in their Diary the rules & their 7 pawsome facts. Then choose 7 cats to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to purr them a pmail that they have been tagged and to read your Diary or send them a fun Rosette announcing they've been Tagged!

So here are my 7 facts:

1. I like to lick Creamsicles.
2. I like to stalk Louis and pester him all the time.
3. I have decided I now like to play with plastic milk jug rings.
4. I like to hang off the edge of the coffee table and bite my mom's toes when she wears socks.
5. I like to sleep under the bed when I don't want bothered.
6. I like to run up and down the hall at lightening speed over and over.
7. I always try to lick stamps and envelopes if they are left sitting out. Glue is good!

And now I tag these 7 kitties:

1. Socks
2. Firegirl
3. Kayleigh
4. Snicks
5. Vanessa
6. Merlin
7. Blue II

If any of you have already been tagged then just ignore this. MOL!

My Birthday!

When I first opened my eyes this morning I was expecting to see something different. I guess I always do that on my birthday and everything always looks the same. You would think turning a whole year older would make something look different! Louis says it does but it just happens very slowly and it happens to my body. Hmmmm? I'll let you know if I ever see this going on with myself. MOL! The day is starting off very sunny and I like that. It might attract some birds to the feeder and I can watch them eat. That would be a good thing to do for my 6th birthday. I will also play, eat, sleep and run a lot. Yep that sounds pretty much like my normal day. I think I might get a little bit of cake later and rumor has it that is has cherries on the top! That just might be even better than watching birds. Notice I said MIGHT be. OK well that is about all I have to say as I step into my 6th year of life. I hope all of my friends have a great day today and wish I could share my cake and birds with all of you.

Purrs,
Ethan

Falling Objects

November 10th 2007 7:32 am

I am having so much fun watching all the falling objects. No, I don't mean the ones on some of our Catster pages. I mean all the Autumn leaves and the first snow bugs of the season! In case you are a new friend or have forgotten, you can look back in my diary entries for my explanation about snow bugs. They didn't last long at all and completely vanished when they hit the ground. It is still a little too warm for snow bugs I guess. They were small and icy and not the big fluffy ones that I like the best. The leaves are cool though. Right now they are almost constantly falling. They hit the sky lights and are so intriguing to my cat senses. :) Louis has no interest in the leaves or snow bugs. And I must admit that I am not quite as interested as I used to be either. I do have my moments still though when the kitten in me comes back and I am once again mesmerized by Mother Nature.

Purrs,
Ethan

 

Some of My Favorite Cats

I have been tagged a number of tims for this new meme. I choose 10 friends and say something about each of them. It was not easy to pick just ten so I mainly used cats I had gotten the meme from and some other good friends. To those I tagged, if you want to play, then please pick 10 friends and do the same. But if you don't wnat to play or have already done this meme, that's cool too. If you do play then send 10 friends a pmail or rosette to let them know you said something about them. Friends that I tagged:

Firegirl- beautiful, a little wild and my girl forever I hope
Tigmut'hep- very cool and smart, loves his food
Socks- so much fun and a lot like me
Isis- Tigs' pretty new sister and a nice friend
Milagrito- intelligent, interesting and handsome
Kitty Kazoo- funny, pretty and a favorite of ours
Kayleigh- another pretty girl and a very sweet friend
Bobbi Boi- new to Catster and me but seems to be very cute and nice
Oly- a very special kitty, creative and helpful
Maytag- a wild man but more calm now, cute as can be

Purrs,
Ethan

 

Gift from the Groundhog

October 12th 2007 10:52 am
[ View A Comments ]

If you read Louis's diary then you know about the groundhog we had here and how he came back. He is living under our neighbor's shed now. Where he was digging the hole in our yard caused him to dig up several chipmunk holes and tunnels. I guess that stirred up some seed the chipmunks had been storing for Winter. Suddenly one day we saw a huge sunflower already blooming right by where the groundhog had dug. We are not sure why we didn't see it coming up but it just seemed to be there all of a sudden. It's really a pretty yellow flower too. So many times our dad tried to grow sunflowers but the chipmunks would chew them down while they were still very small. So it must be some kind of small miracle for this one to grow so big so fast and have no critter attack it. It really is a gift from the groundhog. Maybe he was trying to make up for all the mess he caused in our yard.

Purrs,
Ethan
