My Diary by Barneby Jones (Barney Joe) Thunderbear - 9/27/12 -- MOVING & CHAOS

September 27th 2012 5:32 am
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ]

WELL, it certainly chaotic around here! Boxes and boxes everywhere, and about the time a purrson gets comfy to snooze and *sNozz* on one, it goes away! Mommi and Ro's friend Susan comes and gets 'em. However, I have heard most of them will go into "storage", obviously a city where boxes full of house stuff go until a family needs them again. We want to have a yard sale---again, I am confused because why sell the yard? Doesn't it go with the house? It is a big yard---I have never been out in it but it is very huge, with lots of walnut trees and a little pond. *sigh*. I also like to lie on Mommi's bed and gaze out her window---hope I get to do that at the new house.

WHen we first started moving, I got a worried look on my face, and Mommi said to Ro she said, "Look! Barney Joe has face expressios just like his Daddy did!" Well, of course I do. And my furmommie Bunny, she has been going about, till just of late, with a big-eyed scared look on her face. We are more settled down now. Apparently we are going to have
the time to move gradually. Mommi will take some earth in a little jar from the gravesite of Daddy, Uncle Opie, and Violett...but otherwise we are pretty happy. Mom says frankly she wants out from under this house.
Many years of happiness and sorrow and worry and fun here...(^..^).
Yours truly,
Barney Joe
P.S. Auntie Ro is too sick to work---she has a problem with sugar in her blood and a lung illness--her money from the department of no jobs ran out. Here is a quotation Mommi likes: "We are all in the same boat on a very stormy sea, and we owe each other a terrible loyalty."


My Diary - Barneby Jones Thunderbear OUR HOUSE.

Dear Diary,
Well, we are losing our house and we will have to move. It is very bad as Auntie Ro is too sick to work and cannot get disability yet, and Mommi is on disability for her spinal injury. I don't know why we have to move cos I don't understand what Mommi and Ro were talking about, something like "morgij company" and "reelter" and sometimes they got a little mad, especially Mommi who can't get mad due to her heart condition. We do not know when we will have to go. At least that is what I heard. We think we wil be staying with Auntie Ro's best friend---she has some dogs and cats, but we have to give away China ---shhh, don't tell---as she will need a one-cat home as she poos everywhere when another kitty uses her box. We have to give away Cindy too. Mommy is afraid we will have to give away my sisters and my fur-mom, Bunny. Oh, it is just too awful to think about. Mommi heard this lady tell her, "I know it's a cliche, but just take one day at a time...if we didn't have Auntie Ro's friend to stay with, we would be in a heap of a bad situation, like....homeless. Mommi said if they get homeless she will push me in my stroller and take care of me no matter what, that's what she promised to my daddy Joe and Uncle Opie, and she took care of them and nursed them to health until Opie's illness took him...oh, I have to stop writing.

Well, today my ear was all messsed up. It has a scab on it and Mommi looked at it and said it ookedlike it was all bloody inside like I scratched it. She said she didn't see any ear mites and she got some stuff called alcohol but not the kind people drink, another kind and she put it on a cotton ball and cleaned out my ear. I was very patient and good about it, once I realized I couldn't get away and had no choice but to let her clean my ear. THEN she said she was going to apply ear mite medicine anyway! *hmph*!! Well, she will not abide an ear mite as my daddy almost died because the mites broke through his ear drum and he got a brain abcess! Uh-oh, I see her coming with that ear mite medicine. Better go for now,'
Yours truly,
Barneby Jones


MUSINGS of BARNEBY JONES THUNDERBEAR--- (the Great :)-------Aug.4, 2012

Dear Diary---
Well, Mommi took some new photos of me and put them in my Catster Plus photo album. I am handsome. I am much handsomer than my twin brother, Joe Thunderbear, jr. I noticed how big my nose and ears are for a Persian, then I remembered I am 1/4 Turkish van or less, as my fur mommie Bunny has some Turkish Van in her but you'd never know it, she looks Persian.
Mommi is only letting me in her room part of the time, as for awhile their I was tossing hairballs and I-don'tknow=what. Also, she took the food and water bowls of mine out of her room and put them with the other kitties. *hmph* Cos I gulp water and then toss it all up on her bedclothes.
Today I have sneaked in her room twice. She is in the office typing and her room is by the office. I sneak by and lay on her bed. Well, she may need me to lay down beside her or watch over her to make sure she takes her medicines right and doesn't fall (she fell and hurt her spine and legs ten years ago). I am needed here. It makes me happy.
Yours truly,
Barney Joe


MY DIARY -- by Barney Joe Thunderbear -- Helping Mommi and Other stuff --8/2/12

Dear Diary---
Well, I do not understand Mommi---I like to help her do stuff, sew & stuff, and I especially like to try and smooth the fabric with my paw whilst she is cutting it, and she says, "Barney, you will get a cut on your paw! No no!" *hmph* Those sharp scissors only cut cloth, so I am quite certain they won't hurt me. Also when she is putting her medicine pills in the tray for each day, I like the noises they make in the bottle and I want to smell them and maybe even try one, they might be good. She says, "Barney Joe, no! This isn't treats it is blood pressure medicines and stuff and will hurt you!". AND, she won't let me have any more milk---as it upsets my tummy but I do not care it doesn't hurt me!
How do we teach these Mommi's and Daddy's stuff they don't know. We need a group called, "Teaching Our Humans."
Yours truly,
Barney J. T'Bear


My Diary entry on July 26, 2011 ******** MY NEW CAREER

July 26th 2012 8:38 am

Today Mommi took 10,000 new pictures of moiself! I was fabulous. I posed, and looked this way and that, I played with the camera string, and I stared smolderingly into the camera. I made adorable profile poses. .Mommi said I was so good and beautiful! Then she took a few photos of me playing with her hands, and she said I seem rather like a baby lion, and I bite HARD! Just to add drama to the photo of course. When she said, at last, "We're done!", I jumped off the bed right on cue and went to the dining room to hang out near the cold air machine.
I believe I just might be a star.

Me and the Leopard! - JUNE 5 DIARY ENTRY 1012

July 5th 2012 5:57 am
[ Leave A Comment ]

Dear Diary----I have a new friend who is a leopard! Yous can see a picture of him if yous go to my page. Peoples think I am very brave, but it is kinda strange cos I haven't seen Leo (I named my new leopard friend) move or hiss at me. When I first met him--and I am not dumb, neither--- I thought he was real! So did the other cats. They crept up and inspected him carefully all over till they were satisfied he wasn't a real live jungle cat.
Now, on to another subject. I do not know who my step brother Freddy Mercury thinks he is, but he has taken to spelling his name "Fredi Murkuri". He says "Well, it befits a celebrity, you know." As my daddy used to say, "He Had Just Better Watch It." I bleve he's gettin' too big for his britches.
Yours truly,
Barneby Jones Thunderbear
PS: I have a secret crush on a lady kitty on THUNDERCATS*!


My Diary Entry for June 13, 2012 by Barney Joe Thunderbear

Well, we had a terrible thunderstorm the other day. It was around 10 in the morning, and the power went out, and we thought we might be getting a tornado, but had no way of knowing as Mommi's weather radio batteries were down! (You need a weather radio in the Ozarks!). So, Mommi and Auntie Ro opened the back door and the wind was whipping up and Mommi said, "Is that the sirens?" as there was a strange noise in the wind. Auntie Ro said , 'I do not know...". The wind can sometimes sound awful strange in a big storm. But it turned out not to be the tornado siren, although we kept our ears open for it. I was a little scared and stayed on Mommi's bed. They went out on the front porch and saw that half a block away a whole TREE had fallen on the power lines! :O And in our back yard a very big limb came down. The rain hadn't even started, and so we kept listening for the sirens. It started to rain ferociously--what they call a "frog strangler" around here--and no hail, so we felt sorta safe, as hail precededs the tornadoes. We wondered about Joplin, 60 miles west, where the horrible tornado happened a year ago. It just rained forever and we were powerless an hour and a half--a long time if you are not sure a tornado could be coming. We get them every few years here, and usually they do little damage, but back in the eighties a girl got killed by one here.
They fixed our power---the City Utility people are brave! and the storm passed.
Today will be sunny and very warm.
Yours truly,
Barneby Jones Thunderbear


My Latest Diary Entry by Barney Joe on June 10,- 1012.....Sunday!

Dear Diary---

Well, last night I tried to wake up Mommi---I scratched her gently over and over on her forearm and she just muttered, "What is it, Kitty?". I had to tell her something and show her, but she would not wake up! I cannot reveal it, but what if one night I smell smoke or someone out front is fooing about in the night around the porch or something, or trying to peer in the window? She told Anuntie Ro today she will make sure and wake up next time, as maybe I was trying to tell her something important!
And I was! I can't bark, you know....

Yours truly,
Barney the Watchcat


My Diary Entry For MAY 5, 2012 -----HISSED OFF

June 5th 2012 7:46 am
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ]

That's right. Day before yesterday, Mommi decided, with the help of Auntie RO holding me down as I am a fierce lion, to clip my claws, put ear medicine in me, AND clip mats! I was so mad I did not speak to her for 24 hours. She tried to pet me and I pulled away. She tried to talk to me and I ignored her. She tried all manner of sneaky ways to get my attention, but I was miffed and hissed off and just plain MAD!! I could tell her feelings were hurt, well GOOD! Mine were too and I do not know why she put me through that in one day. *Hmmph*! Finally---oh, and I would NOT snuggle with her which I do constantly---when she lies on her bed to watch t.v. or sleep I am almost always snuggling up to her. And at night I spend most of the night right beside her and I guard her and protect her. And she treated my like a common animal.
Finally, when I realized her feelings were so very hurt I felt sorta bad and I gradually let her get closer to me.
We are o.k. now. I know she needs to put medicine in my ears but she had just better wait a bit. But she is really my good Mommi. *smooch* (don't tell anyone I said that)> =(^..^)=
