Arrival Story: Samson was born to a cat belonging to some friends of ours. When he was a kitten, he fit neatly into my cupped hands. Now he's so long that two people can hold him side-by-side, one with his front end, the other with his bum. He has a loud, insistent meow and can be very demanding, but underneath he's very sweet, especially when he's just woken up. Unless, of course, he was woken up by some poor misguided blighter who doesn't know better. He turned 5 years old on May 13, 2012.

Thank you to all my wonderpurr furiends fur rememfuring my Gotcha Day when I furgot it! *embarrassed grin* Thanks fur all the rosies and wishes. Hard to believe that I've been on Catster fur ofur a year now! I haven't been around much lately, but as you know we've been packing to move. The people we're buying the house from were having a garage sale to get rid of some of their stuff, and we went and bought a few of their things, including their ride-on lawn mower which w're going to need to keep the grass down at this new place. It's got almost 2 acres of land, including a dam (which is dry at the moment - maybe we should call it "Lake Air"?) and an orchard with a few fruit trees, to which we'll be adding more when we move in. The packing is going slowly but surely, so hopefully we'll have it done in time fur Moving Day.
Guess what? Meowmy was talking to her mum and her mum's furiend the other day and they were talking about the stories and poems Meowmy likes to write sometimes, and Meomwy jokingly suggested that maybe she should put them all on a blog or something. That suggestion, joke though it was, was met enthusiastically and they all encouraged her to do just that. So... she's put most of her writings up on a website now and if you're interested, you can read it here: *www.coffeeinthenebula.webs.com* (She's a Star Trek fan, as you might notice on the site. *grin*) Some of her stories are Star Trek fanfiction, but most of the stuff on there is poems about cats. So if you want to read it, you know now where to find it.
That's about all that's "new" here, except fur Meomwy's constant complaining about the matted fur and multitude of burrs that she's always finding in my thick winter coat. They're a pain to get out (literally!).
Greetings to all my long-suffering furiends on Catster!
Firstly I would like to explain why I have not been seen around in a while. That is in part because... we have bought a new house!! (cue the wild cheers... no? okay...) We are now madly packing to have everything ready fur the move in a few weeks. (And actually, the new house is only 15 minutes away, so it seems a waste to have to pack everything up just to move it 15 minutes down the long road and unpack it again.) This new house is closer into town, although it's older, so it will require a bit of fixing-up when we move in.
Another thing I'm blaming my absence from Catster on is the patchy internet connection lately, but that's another story and far too boring right now.
I will do a round of some of the groups today and try to get to some others later, so just bear with me pawlease. I will also need to temporarily paw-off some of my group responsibilities to somefur(s) else fur a while, so I will let respective furs know about that.
Other than that, there's not really much else to tell. Meowmy has opened a YouTube account and has uploaded my "Mahna Mahna" music video (in my Catster video book) and is currently editing my "Home Among the Gum Trees" music video (on my Catster profile page). She also found a video slideshow with pictures of Uncle Felix so she's uploaded that fur a few furiends. That's in the moments when the internet is holding out long enough to actually upload anything. If you're interested, the video (if it efur finishes uploading!) can be found at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1UH-uVGuXCM . Meowmy may upload it to Felix's Catster page so it can be found easier, but that's if the internet works fur long enough.
In case you're interested, Meowmy's YouTube account can be found at www.youtube.com/CoffeeKittyNetwork (cause she likes coffee and she likes cats, probably in that order).
I have also taken a look at my Google+ page, which I haven't actually really looked at before, and if you're interested in little tidbits of what I'm doing, pictures of me, when I'm likely to be back, and just how busy I am, go to my Google+ page at http://plus.google.com/108011976599113731753/posts . If I have anything to share from now on, I'll probably be posting a quick note on there, or on the ShoutBox on my Catster page.
Enjoy your summer weather, my furiends, and think of your poor pal Down Here who is freezing his paws off. (This is why I spend so much time on Meowmy's catputer... literally!)

I have been tagged fur this kewl game by my furiend Dashy. I must answer these questions and then tag five of my friends to play too. So...
1. Describe one thing your pet pawrent does that you think is REALLY CUTE.
Hm... I like it when Meowmy lets me curl up on her lap and she scritches behind my ears and rubs my belly, if I let her reach it.
2. Describe one thing your pet pawrent does that you think is REALLY LAME.
What?? Just ONE thing?!? I hate the way Meowmy tries to dress me up and take pictures of me. (Christmas hats are itchy.)
I am tagging these friends:
rookie detective Indy (Catster #242020)
the gorgeous Reanan (Catster #675562)
Mietzi Katze with the kewl name ;) (Catster #937054)
