When I joined Catster in February 2011, I had no idea what to expect other than posting a few pics may sending a few emails( with moms help of course). Catster is a wonderful community filled with love, support and friendships.....this has helped bring out moms softer side(purrs).
One of my furriends' mom and dad really need our purrs and prayers. To respect their privacy I won't say who, but please know that if your "best friend and husband" of 21 years was recently re-diagnosed with Cancer you would be devastated beyond words. During the last couple of weeks there have been tests and more tests and the waiting for the results..... OMG they have felt every emotion, fear, anger sadness, helplessness and just plain exhaustion..... The husband went through Chemo which resulted in him being very very sick and now it is back....where is the fairness and justice????
Good news is that the Cancer hasn't spread so surgery is scheduled for Tuesday....it'll be a nine hour operation and with travel of 80 miles return, it'll be a very long day.
My friend is such an inspiration to me, she defines sweetness and generosity. Through all of this, she not only holds down a full time job, but she looks after a very large "cat colony", she posts to her FB page Catster kitties in need of adoption every day, she visits all new COTD, COTW AND DOTD kitties to welcome and greet them.......Amazing!!!!
Please know that on Tuesday I will be sending extra prayers for you and your husband.......this poem came to mind so may it bring you some comfort....
Footprints in the Sand - Poem
One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,
other times there were one set of footprints.
This bothered me because I noticed
that during the low periods of my life,
when I was suffering from
anguish, sorrow or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints.
So I said to the Lord,
“You promised me Lord,
that if I followed you,
you would walk with me always.
But I have noticed that during the most trying periods of my life
there have only been one set of footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most, you have not been there for me?”
The Lord replied,
“The times when you have seen only one set of footprints in the sand,
is when I carried you.”

Dear Diary........ OMC, the Mrs. is at it again......I AM CAT,,,,HEAR ME MEOW(roar)...if you want to play dress up perhaps you should have a doll or baby but not ME..... The Mrs. came home with this black and pink sweater, along with a couple of hats.....I feared for my safety.....and rightly so..... as you can see from the photo's I have my sweater on.....do I look "happy"??..... the Mr. was downstairs last night so after I was trapped in this sweater I slinked downstairs to get away. The Mr. took one look at me, looked at the Mrs. bowed his head and uttered "oh you poor cat Harley".
On the bright side. my new mousie is my favourite toy and I make sure that I take it with me when I go to bed at night......

OMC.....Meowmy really needs to learn to read CONTEST RULES before she submits my photos' and rallys all the troops to vote for me.... Meowmy had all her peeps at work vote for me each day..... and to top it off she sent out email reminders......that 'competitive' streak is not always a good thing. Seems the contest is only open to residents of the USA, Canada is excluded..... my angel sisfur must be looking down on us and shaking her head MOL.
Big Harry is on page 1 in fourth place I think...... so our votes will be switched........ good luck Big Harry

We wish everyone a wonderful long weekend and sure hope that power is restored to the East Coast and people can get back to their homes.
Ohhhh....we are so excited.... the Mrs. has tried to make my page very pretty but somehow it just hasn't come together....one of my furriends and his Mom emailed and made an offer to decorate our page for us we can hardly wait...... it'll be so pawsome..... maybe the Mrs might learn a thing or two as well MOL
On another front, Auntie is doing well, her pregnancy is progressing well and the Mrs has planned a shower for her with the gals from work.....OMC ya try to plan something and everyone just has to put in there two cents....
I tell ya, that Mrs. is pretty sneaky..... she picked me up to cuddle me, then promptly cradled me in her arm while with the other hand she CUT MY NAILS....I worked very hard to get them long and sharp, I even whimpered a bit hoping the Mr. would take pity and rescue me...no such luck!!!
Now I have no nails....I am so sad:(
Hugs & purrs

I was tagged by my friend Casey!!
A New Game- Lovebug Tag! To play, copy the 6 questions below and paste/answer them in your diary! Then tag some friends to play, too!
1. Meow! Are you a noisy kitty or a quiet kitty?
I think I am a quiet kitty...but my subjects beg to differ....if my name wasn't Harley, I think I would've been named Squeaker because when I MEOW I have a delicate voice that gently "squeaks".
2. Litterbox! Cover your business or let some other kitty cover?
Oh definitely COVER IT..... I can't have anyone snoop or peak and see that I am not always LADYLIKE......the litter box really needs to have a cover for privacy and a nice vanilla scented potpourri.
3. Happy! Favorite Daily Routine?
Seeing either the Mr or Mrs when they come up to my bedroom and get my every morning.....I love the cuddles so much that I become a purr machine.
4. Hiss! Least Favorite Routine?
Oh for sure it has to be when the Mrs. gets those scissors out to trim my pantaloons or any other "danglers" HISSSS
5. Ding-Dong! What do you think about visitors to your house?
I am curious, I want to check them out BUT don't get too close to me otherwise I am gone......exception is when my loyal subjects are away on vacation then I want to see ANYBODY.
6. Friends! Do you like other animals?
I don't like dogs...... bad experiences. I do love other kitties except those troublemakers in the neighborhood that come and sit on MY deck and taunt me because I can't go out!!!
"Here are some friends that I am tagging!
Everfurryone is welcome to play if you are reading this and you want to play, consider yourself tagged! Be sure to let your friends know they've been tagged by sending them a message or rosette! Angels can play, too! Tell us about your life at the bridge or your life at home before the bridge!"

Ah…..life is so good for me…..I have the Mrs. wrapped around my little “paw”….. I nibble at my food, turn to look at her and she comes running over with the “spoon” to scoop the wet food away from the sides of my bowl and make a pile in the centre of my bowl…… ah……….life is good…….. purrrrrrrr
I tell ya, the Mrs. is a lovely lady…. BUT……. her mind must wander……… let me tell ya what happened this morning at 7:30 am when she was leaving for work……..I was watching….ok not really but I have a good imagination………
The Mrs. kisses the Mr. and tells him to have a “good” day, she grabs her purse and laptop bag puts it all in the passenger seat of “Betsy”, the sunglasses go on, the tunes are on, Betsey’s in reverse, the foots on the gas…(albeit lightly) and then BOOMMMMMM ok, not quite BOOMMMMM…… seems that depth perception must’ve been off a bit……..
Next thing I hear the door open, the Mrs. is calm, looks for the Mr and asks him to come out to the garage…….oh no…what’s he gonna find???????
Amazing that a little drivers side mirror can be ripped right off a car and totally bend the frame of the garage door....go figure……..
Both the Mr and Mrs are making great use of DUCT TAPE……Red/Green would be proud!!!!!
$300.00 later for both the car and garage door………. Maybe the Mrs. should’ve just stayed in bed today, ya think MOL
On another subject, Auntie is doing very well and her due date keeps changing, now they say she’s going to have a Christmas baby and she didn’t want to know the sex but we think the technologist slipped because she kept referring to “he” or “him” but we’ll see…… Auntie already has the nursery done……..and Banditt made himself at home in the …….I’ll try to upload the pic for ya….it is priceless.
