How pawesome is it that Catster HQ picked me for DDP!

Daddy told me this morning that Catster HQ selected little ole' me as one of their Daily Diary Picks today! How pawesome is that! I am so honored! Even before breakfast this morning daddy played fetch with me with one of my favorite mousie toys. I just love tossing them in the air and then trying to catch them. Then my sisfur Saphira and I chased each other around a bit to celebrate!

Thank you Catster diary people, and thank you to those who have already sent me pawmail concatulations and gifts.

Now I need to go track down another mousie!


I get a new toy! (Well, it is a kitty drinking fountain, but- I will let daddy tell you about it!)

Hi Catsters, Viola's dad, think I need to tell this story for her. We had read that lots of kitties like to drink from running water, like running faucets and special kitty fountains. Having lost two much loved Egyptian Maus to kidney failure in the past, we like the idea of them drinking lots of water. We had noticed Viola and her sisfur Saphira drinking from the little ornamental fountain in our living room, so they clearly like running water too. Yesterday we received a kitty fountain we ordered from Petco, it was very inexpensive but received very good reviews. Both kitties behaved like typical Ocicats, very curious about the big new box and "helped" me open it and assemble it, very simple to do. I filled it and started it up, pretty quiet, nice thing since it is in our bedroom. I got back on the laptop and then a little later I heard the sound of water splashing! Wondering what could be going on, I looked over to see Viola playing in the fountain with her paws! Adding a picture I shot after quickly grabbing the camera to her profile, it was just too cute! This was not just a tentative paw in the water and back out, she had splashed water all over the place! The next day she jumped in bed with me and her paws were wet, so I knew where she was playing again! I think she likes it! I even see her drinking there once in awhile!


Caught in the act!

Last week I was doing what any curious young Ocicat does, checking out any space I can crawl into where there is something interesting. In this case, daddy had left the top drawer in his nightstand open a bit, and since I know this is where he keeps a big stash of kitty treats, I climbed right in to see what might taste good. I was minding my own business, peacefully ripping open a nice bag of my favorite Temptations, when I was startled most unceremoniously by this very bright flash of light! I looked up, not too happy about having my quest for goodies interrupted, and then another flash! Daddy had caught me, there he was with his camera gathering evidence against me! He even added one of the pictures to this page!

After he was through documenting my attempted thievery, he did something even worse, he made me get out of the drawer (over my vociferous protests!) I suspect that in the future he is going to be more careful about keeping that drawer closed. Durn it!

I am going to have to be a much more careful kitty next time!


Our two pawed sisfur Melanie is a doctor!!!

The Pawrents left us alone for two whole days! They told us later that they were in a place called Arizona to see their human daughter Melanie receive something called a PhD. Seems she is now some kind of doctor, but not the kind that takes care of sick kitties or even sick humans. They say that she will now be teaching something called criminology at a university in a place called Reno. It gets even colder and snows more there than it does here. BRRRRR!

Melanie is very special to my sisfur Saphira and me, she is one of the nice people (along with their other daughter Nina) who gave the Pawrents the best Christmas present ever, Saphira! And they loved her so much that they wanted another Ocicat to keep her company, so they adopted another wonderful Oci, ME!

So concatulations to Dr. Mellie (as we call her around here now)!

I guess we forgive them for abandoning us, just as long as it does not happen again!


Sorry about the lapse in diary musings...

Sorry about the lapse in updating my diary musings, daddy has been kind of busy lately, so he has not been helping me tell you guys about all the happenings around here. He promises to help me catch up right away!


A late reminder...

Since daddy was away most of yesterday and was not here to help with my diary, I did not get to help remember all those in our military services, two and four pawed and even some with wings, who died to win and preserve the freedoms all of us and our humans enjoy today.

Purring sadly in memory of all these heroes.


My Second Birthday Today!

I was SO excited this morning when meowmy told me it is my birthday today! I am a two year old kitten now! Then I started getting nice purresents from the other nice kitties here on Catster! And then to make my day purrfect, daddy came home today! He was away at some kind of meeting about something they call "astronomy" for the last few days. I think it has something to do with stuff like stars and the moon and planets, but kitties like me don't know too much about that, we spend our time playing fetch, chasing our other kitty friends, and of course our favorites, napping and grooming!

Thank you to all my Catster furiends for their nice gifts and birthday wishes!


Viola disappears! (Temporarily!!!)

As you furiends who have read Viola's earlier musings already know, she very much follows the Ocicat breed characteristic of following her pawrents all around the house, to the extent that one of our nicknames for her is "Shadow", for the way she shadows us. Last night she had been a bit picky about eating dinner, something very unusual for Miss Piggy, so I decided to check up on her. I went out in the hallway and called her, which usually brings her running. No Viola. I noticed the hall linen closet was slightly open (the latch is spring loaded, so a strong enough push or pull will open it), so I quickly checked the closet and no Viola. She had previously used all the nice soft bedding here as a comfy nap spot a few times. While this might not have bothered most cat pawrents, we were getting a bit concerned as this was SO unlike her. I made a few more loops around the house, and about the third time I find her in the hallway, the same one with the linen closet. We all go about our business, and about an hour later, same thing happens. I noticed that I had left that linen closet door open, so after a quick look inside, I closed it. More looking, more calling, and at this point meowmy and daddy are really getting concerned, again because this had never happened in the five months Viola had been in our family. I was standing in the hallway wondering where to look next when I heard a faint scratching from that durn linen closet. I open the door and out pops our little overgrown spotted kitten, as if nothing had happened! Daddy should have remembered how much she loves to snuggle UNDER the covers, I am sure that is what she was doing there.

Maybe daddy needs to put some real doorknobs and latches on our closet doors... or else train Saphira to be a search cat?


Viola and Saphira found a new way to wake up the pawrents!

Well, our four pawed alarm clocks found a new way to wake us up this morning, and they were at the other end of the house at the time! Our house has a security system, which we normally do not have activated when we are home, although meowmy sometimes does have the door/window sensors on when she is home alone. Even when the system is disarmed, we still get a triple beep on the control pad in our bedroom whenever any of the door or windows opens or when one of the glass break detectors, one each in the living and family rooms, activates. About six this morning the triple beep went off, waking both of the humans. I found both of the house felines in the living room, with doors and windows secure. Nothing was broken, but in the past the glass break detectors have triggered on something as small as a key dropped on the tile in the entry. Exactly HOW Saphira and Viola managed to wake us up will probably always remain a mystery, because so far neither of them is talking.


Viola the alarm kitty!

I am usually very good about sleeping in with my pawrents and my sisfur Saphira, but some days I wake up a bit early and really feel like a very playful kitty. I was that way this morning, and woke up before anyone else. First thing I did was to drag a small rug that I usually use to sharpen my claws on across the room, making a lot of noise in the process. Then I started playing with one of my favorite toys, one of those thingies with a little ball inside a circular tunnel that I can bat around. This one is really cool, the ball chirps like a birdie whenever I move it. I thought it would be more fun to bat that ball around on the floor, so I, being a very smart and curious kitty, managed to get the ball out of that tunnel and had a lot of fun playing with it before daddy got up and put it back inside the tunnel and put an end to my fun. I gave up sadly and curled up in bed with daddy and went back to sleep. Already planning my next morning playtime!
