Well, both of my brothers were invited to play the Spring Tag game today, so I decided to play too.
Here are some of the things I like about Spring:
1. I like the frogs. I don't actually see them cuz they stay in the bottom of the canyon behind our house by the little stream, but I do enjoy hearing them sing every night!
2. Watching the peeps walk by while I look at them upside down.
3. The great smells coming in from all the open windows.
4. All the extra birds. I love watching the big yellow & black orioles that eat the jelly & oranges mom puts out for them.
5. The lizards that run around on the patio and on the fence.
If you would like to play the Spring Tag game, just copy my diary, change the answers to yours and tag five of your furiends!
I am tagging the following kitties but hope that everyone who reads this joins in to play!
1. Andy (#107477)
2. Gysmo (#98723)
3. Harley-Dreamette 2 (#1177272)
4. Natasha (#1084411)

Today is Harley's and my 8th birthday! What a great day we have been having.
It started with mom singing Happy Birthday to us 1st thing this morning. Now mom's not the greatest singer in the world, but we appreciated the effort-MOL.
Then, mom said she was going to work from home today so she could take a break every time we asked for some play or a treat. My favorite way to do that when she is sitting at the computer is to stand up on my back legs with my front paws on her chair, give her a little meow and my best "please mom" look. Or, I like to jump on the back of her chair and rub my head on her head--that is guaranteed to get attention.
We got our favorite freeze-dried chicken treats this morning--yummers! And guess what---mom ran out to the specialty pet store and just came back with some WildSide Salmon treats--meowza!! It doesn't get much better than that!
Harley is already conked out on the couch in mom's office for an afternoon nap. I think I will curl up on the cat tree in mom's office for a little shut eye too. This celebrating is exhausting-MOL.
We so appreciate the birthday wishes and cool presents we've received from our Catster furiends. Mom insists that we use our best manners, so we are sending individual thank yous to our sweet pals, with lots of love and purrs.
Hope everyone in Catsterland has a wonderful week.

Today is Harley's and my Gotcha Day! Eight years ago today, we were living at a vet's house with our momma cat, another momma cat, a big man cat, a dog & a people family. The family was about to leave on a trip and Harley (called Spot at the time) was the last kitten without a forever home. The family was going to keep me because the boy wanted to keep me. No one had picked "Spot." He was shy, afraid of everything and some people thought the spot on his nose "ruined" his Ragdoll looks--can you imagine?!?! Mom says it makes him extra special and handsome!
Anyways, mom and her granddaughter came over to see "Spot." Mom has a soft spot for what she calls the "underdog" or maybe she means "undercat"--MOL. She wanted to give "Spot" a forever home, but she wanted two kittens because she was afraid that one kitten would get lonely when she went to work. So Mom and her granddaughter went to lunch & to PetSmart to buy lots of kitty stuff while the family thought over whether the boy was willing to let me (the boy called me Yoda) go with "Spot" to a forever home.
When mom and her granddaughter came back, the family said they would let me go with my brother. So mom and her granddaughter took "Spot" & me home & everyone was very excited. Mom's granddaughter wanted to name us Zack & Cody because those were the names of characters in a kids' show she liked to watch. But my brother had such a loud purr that mom suggested he be named Harley, like the motorcycles. So we became Harley & Cody.
We lived in mom's bedroom for the first few days, while we got used to our new home. The day after we came home, mom and her granddaughter went out & came back with a big cat tree for us. We loved it so much that we were climbing on it before mom could even get it in place. She was laughing so hard at us--we don't know why!?!
So here we are eight years later. Mom says she cannot imagine life without us. And we feel the same about our mom and our forever home. We only wish every kitty in the whole world had a wonderful forever home.
Love and purrs to all our Catster friends.
Cody & Harley
