From the desk of Mouse Hunter Extraordinary,
My baby boy Griswold....I hear you have became picky about your food lately. Turning up your nose at any food but your favorite. You need to remember your roots dear. There's nothing wrong with coming from a legacy of barn cats. Your sister and I are just happy that we have a home where there's shelter and food for our wanting. Your Dad being the local boy, the quintessential rolling stone type, gave you your sense of adventure too. You have survival blood running through those veins...remember that. Don't forget that and don't forget to count your blessings every time you see Mommie Chris. She has giving you a life that I can only dream of...ac, heat on cold nights, food at my beck and call, a family of cats to spend time with and a dog to protect me.
Also, please tell Zach I am so thankful that he has taken you under his wing and raised you to the great young man you are becoming.
Love you so much, my little man, stay in touch. AND QUIT BEING SUCH A SNOT! or I'll come and smacky paw you!
Love your Momma.

After months of waiting the time has come......I have a picture of my real Dad. Mariette said had would run off ever time she would get near him to take a picture. She says he must owe a lot of kitty support. Mom says that's the price you pay for playing. MOL.
His name is Baby Mu and he is a barn cat at one of the neighboring farms. Actually, it's a family members farm of the people who own Mom and Sis. They are old school and have several male kits that aren't fixed there. I know...why do they get to keep their grapes. I asked Mom that myself before getting mine snipped.
Mom is going to make a family tree pic for my page. She says it's not often we have pics of our families and should be celebrated. She'll try to post the family tree pic today.
I personally thank he looks like Moppie or a long haired version of Ethan. But you definitely see where i get my long hair from.
My Dad, Baby Mu
I have news on my Sis too. Pip brought her first gift to the door Friday. It was a mousie, a real mousie. So she's earning her keep which is great to the man of the house. I'm sure she had a blast catching him! Mariette said she looked at the mousie and then looked up like where's my food. MOL, that sis of mine.

I was chatting with Fearless last night and me and her came up with the greatest idea!
Lets do a tag game where you tell three of your fondest kitten moments.
See, Fearless is getting ear mite treatments right now. I was telling her I had ear mites when I came to live with Mommie. I did tell her I didn't mind the treatments cause Mommie Chris would come in and i would be soooooo excited to see her! Remember I was just a little thing that was taking away from my sissy and mom and i was scared. Plus i had these two big cats that when they would smell me under the door they would cuss and hiss.
That would be my first fond memory.
2) when i learned how to get food anytime I want! mom has a plastic food container and I learned if I turn it over the lid will come off and i can eat. Yummy. (that was till Mom started keeping the food in the bag, in the container. Now it's more difficult :(
3) Seeing mom after my surgery. I was so happy to see her!
Oh and when Zach finally played with me for the first time. I loved that! Can't leave that memory out.
Okay it's your turn. I pick Fearless and Novi to go next.
If you want to play...please do so.

When mariette visited two weekends ago she about how a cow over me. She said I'm growing daily! She also said I'm looking more a more like my Dad. Turns out he's a huge kitty. She guesses I'll be almost Maine Coon size!
The other night I had mentioned that I was as big as Zach now. Several kits couldn't believe it. Mom had taken some pics last weekend of me and Zach in the window and some more of all three of us today. So keep an eye out. New pics on the way!
the 3 little piggies waiting for the market to come to them
PS- after a surprise storm today Diamond spent hours stuck under the bed. But there was good news waiting her....she was DDP today! Yeah!!!

Mom said this report card isn't as good as the last one. Seems I've developed a stubborn streak. Mom said I have to learn my boundaries and she says No means No. Whats the fun in that?
Playing nicely with others B
Sleeping through the night A
Litter box use A+
Greeting visitors A
Begging for food D
Loving Mom and Dad A
Loving on Grandma and Grandpa C
Walking on leash A
Knows No D
Cleanliness D (shreds papers, TP, PT and newspapers, scatters toys all over living room almost daily)
Gris is still not being nice when Grandma wants to hold him. He has also started hissing at Zoe whens she gets to close. He doesn't swat at her just hisses (learned behavior from her, I'm sure. When he first came here she didn't mind him being around till he got close then she would hiss at him. Time will take care of that) Still knocking things of tables. He also loves to try eating every plant that comes in the door.
Overall, he's fitting right into his name. AKA- nice guy with a stubborn streak and a niche for being a smart butt. I love him for this!!!

Friends, my next report card is really going to go down. Not only have I got all of Zach's bad habits down pat but some of my own.
Today, I scratched Mom and bite her too!!! I had litter stuck to my hinny!!! All she was doing was trying to figure out what it was when I scratched her. Sorry Mom. Then she cleaned me. Mom!!!!Please leave my personals alone! I'll take care of it. Mom said that's what I'm afraid of.
Any suggestions on how to keep it out of my fur??? How do I overlook Mom messing down there?? Do I count to ten? Help!

I finally caught M's eye! Thanks M. I would just like to thank my agent, my family Zach, Zoe, Mom , Dad and Diamond and the Ceiling Cat for helping me achieve this great.....haaha you thought I was serious! MOL. Thanks for everybody!
Mom said this is my very first DDP. Wouldn't you know, the diary wasn't even about me. Ellie is doing fine and has little stars in her eyes from all the attention she has gotten. See my diary was about her forever page going up. She's so cute.
We've been meaning to write about getting gifties in the mail but Mom has been really busy. She has taken pictures but I bet you guessed that.
We got two Yeowww!! Catnip heart attack toys from Luke, Tully, Sammy and as Zach would say the ultra lovely Natasha. Thank you so much, we love them but so does Diamond. She some how got it in her head that they are hers. So she tries to carry them around with her and drop in Mom's lap to throw. Mom has tried explaining to her it's not hers but she doesn't listen. We don't go around bunny kicking her Valentine giftie. Silly dog.
Mom said she'll be around so we can chat with any of our friends.
Littleboy, Samhain and Harley has already congratulated me on my other diary. You know what gets me is that diary is so poorly written because Mom wrote it when she was dead tired. She skipped a whole sentence! And no, she never proof reads, she says who has the time to do that. I guess M just likes the topic...my cute bilogical sister Ellie.

Geez it took long enough. Mom did a great job her page. She's so pretty. Anyway, stop by and say Hey!
Zoe says she loves her playlist it's all Disney, perfect for a princess. Mom said if she has to, she will drive out there and get an updated picture of her herself. She wouldn't mind going and seeing the where the new Day Lily beds are. See Ellie has became a permanent fixture at our biological Mom's house. Turns out she never had to go anywhere. Mom thinks that if she didn't adopt me then we both would have been taken to the shelter but sense there was only one more cat then it wasn't that big of a deal.
There is three other kitties who live inside permanently, two female Burmans and one male Rex. Mom has taught Ellie how to paw at the back door when they are being feed. Sometimes they get to come inside and eat too! Mom and Ellie are mostly outside kits with a big Cat house in the garage for afternoon napping and they sleep and eat in the basement at night. Sometimes Tweetie, the Rex, tries to sneak down to see them and hang out in the basement. The man of the house really likes them cause they earn their keep by keeping the mice population down. He has always said the inside cats are lazy. MOL! But they are so pretty. Mom says those girls inside are high maintenance and yet we get the privilege to be the lawn ornaments not them. My Mom is so pretty and so is my sister, so of course they should be the lawn ornaments. Sitting pretty in front of giant rose bushes and Day Lilies.
My sisters new forever page.

Diamond thanks she's a cat! She has the whole king size bed to sleep on and she chooses to lay on the clean clothes!It's been raining all day and visions of muddy paw prints ran through Mom's head. Mom said "that's not going to work!" But first she's going to video tape it!
Have we told you she snores? Yep diamond snores. So does Zach.
Glad I'm purrrfect!
