indoors and outdoors
Arrival Story: I had been picked up as a stray & was in the shelter for six weeks. Meanwhile, at the other end of town my future family was finally ready to welcome another cat into their lives after Angel Smokey. They went to the shelter thinking "anything but a gray one, because there will never be another Smokey!" Well, even though I'm gray, I kept following them with my big eyes, meowing "pick me, pick me", and they kept coming back to me. When the shelter lady said "would you like to hold her?" I held my breath. When Big Bro Joe declared “This cat has personality!” I knew for sure I had found my forever home!
They loved me, appreciated all of my quirks and when after 7 happy active years with them I got a tumor that quickly took my strength away, they had my back. They took loving care of me and I was being held in Mom's arms when I crossed the Rainbow Bridge in my own time and on my own terms like the independent girl I have always been. That's what a forever home is about, and I chose mine well!

Forums Motto: Pointy Thumbtack on the Throne of Kings!
In order to celebrate, last night I put my alarm clock in the bathroom and locked the door. When it went off this morning not only did I have to pick the lock with a knitting needle (which I had to find first, it’s not like I knit or anything!) to get to the (ahem!) facilities, the stupid alarm was playing “Who Let the Dogs Out? Woof, woof woof woof woof!” full blast the whole time!
Right now I’m unthawing my Harley key, which I froze in a block of ice last night before retiring. I wonder if I’ll make it through the Hairballz rides because I just finished siphoning about 4 gallons of gas from my 5 gallon tank. Yuck! Ptoooie! And of course, just for today I won’t be carrying either a jerry can OR my wallet with me! Do I know how to celebrate or what?!
Then I’ll finish out the day at home watching the Olympics! Of course, because it’s Inconvenience Yourself Day, last night I asked Evie to hide the remote so every time I want to flip the channel I have to get up and do it the cavecat way! I will then finish out this very special day by climbing into my cozy soft bed, which of course I inconveniently short-sheeted when I made it this morning.
A group of us kitties have been making the most of the last days of Cat Channel by participating in the Olympics. We formed curling teams and would you believe all three kitty teams won medals?
Team Mallow represented Sweden and consisted of myself and friends Kieara, Gracie Twinkletoes and Kiska. We got beaten out for the Gold game by Team Mike (made up of our brothers, talk about sibling rivalry!) and Team Steve, but we had a real blast anyway. I think I'm gonna go walk around Sochi for a while now, wearin' my medal. Form an orderly line, no autographs, please.
As some of you may remember, I have been known on Cat Channel for my seasonal specialty treat, Liver Fruitcake. And as some of you may also remember I made WAY too many last year and so inaugurated the First Annual CC Fruitcake Toss Day. This year, by special request from my brother Mike who is still uncovering candied cherries in his garden, we will be celebrating on the grounds of my cabin. Just watch you don’t get any in the river. The EPA is still studyin’ the stuff, you know.
So… how DO you toss a fruitcake? We got creative last year, so let’s get our thinking caps on again. We have big long skinny fruitcakes so we can toss them like Scotsmen tossin’ the caber. Or we can shot-put them. I have round ones that we can throw like baseballs. Football shaped ones for you fans of the gridiron (Way to go Spartans!). Those who are playing in the MHL Snowball Classic tonight might want to practice with these fruitcake hockey pucks I made.
Why, I even made fruitcake cookies in the shape of horseshoes, dice, and other tossable objects. Why cookies, you ask? Why, because I still have some of those lovely T-Shirts reading “I tossed my cookies on Fruitcake Toss Day”. If you missed out on those last year, YOU are in luck now!! Limber up, Catster kitties, and those who have catapults, bring them! Anything goes on Fruitcake Toss Day …
