Christmas is coming!!

November 27th 2012 6:37 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 9 people already have ]

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
Everywhere I go!
With the wreath up upon the door
And the tree falling on the floor,
And it’s so hot!!

Furgive me if I got the tune wrong, but that’s a poetic version of my sentiments. We’ve got the Christmas decorations up everywhere and we got a new tree and kept the old one as well, so now we’ve got TWO trees! It’s fun to sit on the table underneath one of the trees and pawlay with the ornaments. Meowmy’s pawlanning Christmas purresents to get fur everyone and I even heard her mention getting some Fancy Feast fur us fur Christmas. :D We don’t get a lot of wet food.

On the down side of things, we had the first summer thunderstorm come through yesterday. I’m not usually scared of thunder, but this one was LOUD and SCARY!! Meowmy had to drag me out furom under the car; I was so scared I just sat stiffly in her arms as she carried me inside. I now officially do NOT like thunder!!

I’ve told you befur that Meowmy was working on a music video of me and my furiends. Well, she finished it, but she has NOT been able to get Catster to upload it propurrly. It says it’s loaded 100%, then it has that darned “an error occurred” message. Grrr! Meowmy’s decided she’ll try uploading the video to Photobucket then posting it on my page as a HTML code. That might work.

In the meantime, I have to endure endless Christmas CD’s and Meowmy’s singing. She says it’s not really that bad, but I beg to differ. That is why I spend so much time outside. Meowmy just does NOT understand why I don’t like her singing?? Often I can hear “Jingle Bells” blaring out of the CD pawlayer in the living room, “Felize Navidad” on the computer, and Meowmy singing “Adeste Fidelis” in the bedroom! :-0 But as well as singing songs, Meowmy also likes to re-write the. She’s adapted a lot of Christmas carols and silly songs ofur time. Here’s one she adapted furom White Christmas. It’s her Aussie version she calls “Hot Christmas”. Quite appropriately!

I’m dreaming of a hot Christmas
Just like the ones we always knew!
With the rain clouds dying
And us all frying.
With melted ice-cream for me and you.
I’m dreaming of a sunny Christmas
With not a stormy cloud in view!
And the days all sunny and hot
(Just the Christmas weather we always got)!
(last verse: ) I’m dreaming of a sunny Christmas
Just like the ones that we all know!
May your days be cloudy and cool
So you won’t have to open presents in the pool!

And there’s pawlenty more where that came furom! Shall I burn the box or publish it?

Hope the rest of you are having good weather so far and are looking forward to the festive season! And maybe you’d like to share some of my Christmas weather? ;-)

EDIT: Meowmy FINALLY got the music video uploaded. It's on my pet page - "Mahna Mahna". Enjoy!


The Latest furom the Mighty Hunter

Spring has sprung, and so has the grass! And the growing of the grass heralds the return of Meowmy's hayfefur. Nasty human illnesses! All it means is Meomwy goes through a lot of tissues and hates it when I rub my floofy tail in her face. :?

Anyway, in between sneezing and taking pills that don't seem to be doing anything useful, Meowmy has been working on a music video of me and my hometown furiends, Mikey and Goldie the dogs (who are in my furmily) and Yogi and Booboo (who are in Meowmy's sifur's furmily). She says she is having lots of fun making it and that it is almost finished, although judging by the number of death-threats she addresses to her computer daily, I don't think it's coming that easily. :| Stand by fur more news on that!

Also, on the more infuresting furont, a pair of Welcome Swallows have decided to make a nest in the beams of the carport roof. It's a little bark nest with three yummy chicks inside, but they've got the nest nicely wedged in a small, inaccessible place, so it will require some creative thinking to get to the tasty little snackies inside. :D I would rather show you a picture of me eating the little suckers (just to make you jealous!) but Meowmy says I should show you some pictures of my LIVE purrey. So here it is: (Sorry about the size of the pics; Photobucket's got a new look and I'm still tryin' to find my way around!)

the swallows' nest

the chicks (tasty, aren't they?)

this isn't actually the parent, but at least you can see what the adult looks like

I hope all of you are having a great Autumn, my furiends! As our weather gets nicer and our temperatures start rising, I'll be thinking of you all dusting out your firepawlaces and finding the electric blankies!

Have a great day, my furiends!



I'm a Cool Cat on the Feisty Scale!!

November 2nd 2012 7:25 pm

Here is a fun game I found in one of my furiend's diaries. How feisty are you??

Charlie Chocolate Paws Scales of Feistiness

1. Do you make demands of your human? (If you answered Yes, give yourself 1 point.)
[Sure do! 1 to me.]

2. If you make demands by doing any of the following, give yourself 1 point for each:
Persistent meowing [Definitely 1 more point.]
Biting 0 [I only bite the other annoying cats.]
Smacky Paws 0
Relentless staring 0 [That's more Booboo's tactic.]
Inappropriate behaviors (i.e., chewing on furniture, electrical cords, the oven) Getting on the counters and table. [MOL! Another 1 point.]

3. If you make demands by doing any of the following, subtract 1 point:
Headbonking 0
Rubbing and purring on your human -1 [Is this getting good or bad??]

4. If you let your humans rub your belly, subtract 2 points.
[The biggest NO-NO with me! 0]
5. If you let anyone kiss your belly, subtract 5 points. [0 If you try, you are taking your life into your hands!]

6. Are you Head of your Household (HOH)? (1 point if you consider yourself HOH) [1 Of course!]

7. If you have kitty (or other animal) siblings, do you:
(Give yourself 1 point for each Yes)
Eat their food? [1 - When no-one's around to stop me!]
Demand that they groom you? 0 [Most certainly not!]
Chase them? [1 Of course! What other entertainment IS there besides hunting and eating? And, of course, sleeping.]
Stare at them relentlessly? [0 Why would I want to?]
Stalk them? 0
Pounce on them? [1 But of course.]
Make them meow? [0 Wish I could!]
Steal their (well, *your*) toys? [0 Toys? What toys? Meowmy hides the laser light and all our other toys are broken!]
Make them growl? 0
Make their ears go backwards? [1 - But not on purrpose!]
Pretend to be grooming (or staring at the wall, ceiling, etc.) while actually stalking them? 0

8. Have you ever destroyed household items?
(1 point for each yes)
Furniture? 0
Clothing or shoes? 1 [if you count cat collars!]
Kitty Toys? 1 [Oh, yes! I should give myself a couple of points fur this one! MOL!]

9. Please list any other crazy things you do that are ridiculously feisty (1 point per).
[Hm. I can't really think of any!]

Total Score (Place your score/name in your Diary Title):

My Score is 8 or 9 [depending on whether you count those collars or not!] I'm a COOL CAT!

0-5 LAIDBACK LOVEBUG: You are a lovebug. You are sweet (and probably floofy) and you go with the flow. Nothing *really* bothers you and you like everybody. You don’t even mind having a feisty sibling! You are a laidback lovebug!

6-15 COOL CAT: You are one cool cat. Smooth with a touch of mischief. You’ve got a bit of feisty in you and a bit of lovebug. Balance is good; you know how to have a good time by chasing and pouncing AND you know how to have a good time by being a mellow kitty and just hanging out. You are a cool cat!

16+ CRAZY FEISTY: You are a nut. A cheeky little monkey! Crazy, feisty, the talk of the town! Chasing kitty sisters, demanding your human feed you NOW, eating your mom’s favorite pair of shoes, turning on the oven with your freakishly strong teeth just because you can! The world is your playground and you’ll try anything once (or twice). If your human can handle the shenanigans of a CRAZY FEISTY kitty cat, all is good! If your human cannot handle the shenanigans, wait until she leaves for work to get crazy and then blame it on your sistercat when your human comes home! You are crazy feisty (and a whole lot of mischievous fun!)!

Any kitty that wants to play is invited! Feel free to tag friends to find out just how feisty your friends are!

So, you've seen how feisty I am, what about you furs? Post in your diary and/or in the comments below to let the world know how feisty you are!

Happy Novemfur!

Guess what I've been doing again?? I just LUV watching these funny kitty vids and I thought you might enjoy if I shared some more with you. Did you read that Dogster article that proves the kewt pet pics are good fur people?

It's a Scary, Scary World out there, as testified by Gibson.

Sylvester the talking cat in one his episodes, in which the landlord comes around!

Sylvester digs his hole deeper when he tries to sell the dog after a house move that traumatizes his feline companion.

The list goes on, but these are some of the funnier ones. I think they're all by the same guy, too! Happy viewing efurryone!

More videos!!

Only this time, they're about ME!! Well, "us". My dog-bro Mikey has a new vid on his page that a couple of girls took when they were trying to train Mikey.. furry unsuccessfully! It's only a minute long, but it's funny.

Meowmy has also been reviewing all the videos she has taken of me and her sisfur's cats Yogi and Booboo. She says she's gonna try making one big video of all our kewtest moments, so I'm keeping an eye out fur her camera ofur the next few days!

It's been furry cold here lately. They says it's Spring... I say "Pah!" It's doesn't feel like spring to me! I reckon it'd be warmer if I moved in with one of my American pals in the middle of Fall!

Not much has been happening here, I'm afraid, so there's not really much to report. Meowmy has discofured that I've started stealing furom the compost bin. She saw me yesterday jump in the big improvised "bin" and steal some food out of there and start eating it. I'm gonna have to be sneakier furom now.

I'll sign off now, as I can't really think of any other news-worthy reports, but I'll give you a link to an article on the health benefits of owning a pet. SUPERPETS TO THE RESCUE!! MOL`

Have a great weekend everyfurry!

Catster to Samson, Report!

Okay, so I haven't been around much lately. Sorry about that. Not much has been going on around here furom my point of view, although Meowmy has found sufficient excuses to keep busy. Firstly, there's yet more diseases circulating through Bendigo. Some of our furiends have got chicken pox, so we're looking out fur unaccountable spots. Not good. There is also another of those nefur-ending colds affecting a few people, including Meowmy. She seems to be always catching whatefur's going around! People are too generous. Especially with diseases.

“There are only two things a child will share willingly: communicable diseases and his mother's age.” -Benjamin Spock

On the other paw, things aren't so bad after all. It is my dog bro Mikey's birthday today. (Meowmy actually furgot until Dogster reminded her! Chah! Furget her own head next!) It is also Meowmy's birthday tomorrow. (And can you actually believe she furgot that as well?!!)

Lately Meowmy has started reading a Joe Grey mystery story by Shirley Rousseau Murphy. Have any fur of you read them? This one's called "Cat Telling Tales". It's kinda interesting so far, Meowmy says. She's about two-thirds of the way through it already, so it must be good!

I'll sign off now so Meowmy can go fulfill some more excuses, but I'll try and get around to all my fafurite groups soon.

Ciao and Meow!

Avast ye, Mateys! It be International Talk Like a Pirate Day on September 19th, so hoist yer Jolly Roger an' polish yer doubloons cos we be all Pirate Kitties now! Arr!

I'z be gone to to receive my fury own Pirate Name (which I suspect will be the same as that given to efury other "Samson" on Catster! MOL` My new Pirate Name is "SHARKBAIT" HUBERT BONES. Weird, huh? But there ye arr! Fur this month, you may call me "Sharkbait" - but I'll make ye walk the plank if ye keep it up to long!

Uncle Felix would like me to thank the furs who rememfured his Rainbow Bridge Day on the 1st o' this month. We are both thankful to have such good furiends here on Catster.

I would also like to apologise to anyfur who had a special day or honour lately that I have not acknowledged. I blame me empty Catster purrse, arr! When I earn me some more doubloons an' pieces of eight I can treat you all like you so nobly deserve!

But I'm not one fur the small talk, so I'll be gettin' back to me swashbucklin' an' lead-swingin'. Ahaarrrr!

Going Schizo!!

August 22nd 2012 3:40 am
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ]

Meowmy's wondering if I've found some drugs or catnip somewhere - I'm going ballistic!! I was racing around, chasing things that Meowmy SAYS aren't there (though I'm sure they are!) and I'm trying to get in all the cupboards and I'm running and jumping around. It's lots of fun and it's annoying Meowmy, so I think I'll keep doing it fur a while!

While browsing one of the groups I'm in earlier, Meowmy got to thinking about Vegemite. Now she's got a craving fur it (I don't understand that - I guess it's just not a kitty food!) and she's found the Vegemite song on YouTube and has got it "stuck in her head". (You can find it HERE, in case you're interested.) With Meowmy going around the house singing all the time, it's a good thing I can get to sleep easily!

On the canine side of things, Goldie seems to have sprained her ankle or something. She is favouring her off-fore foot lately and yelps whenefur anyone touches it. Meowmy's hoping it's just a sprain that will heal itself.

Have you seen my latest picture? :D Meowmy caught me with the TV remote and her bottle of ginger beer! :r Next time I'll have to be more sneaky...

Now, I'm all tired out furom my Attack of the Zoomies, so I'm gonna beg fur some more dinner then go take a nap. And some catnip tea! =;
