Today, May 30th is my 10th birthday and the 9th anniversary of the day I found my forever home. I was sure expectin’ to be celebratin’ this one in the fur, but darn it all, the Conductor saw fit to call for my ticket LONG before I was done ridin’. But are we gonna let that stop us from pawtyin’ on?

You’re all invited to come join me in a rip-snortin’ bash and celebration of all things Mallow. Come take a ride over the Pinto Island in a Marshmallow Man hot air balloon ride, drinkin’ hibiscus iced tea and wine from the Mallow Run Winery in Bargerville, IN. Hit the target with the double-barrelled marshmallow gun and win your sweetie a Sta-Puft plushie. We can have a marshmallow bazooka war, shootin’ the big ones at one another AND if I can get my fellow birthday kitty K. Bennie to cooperate, we have a very special dunk tank too. Use the mallow bazooka to blast the target and dunk him into a vat of hot chocolate with mallows floatin’ on top! And when it gets dark, we’ll float in Mallowwood Bay on our Sta-puft floaties while the big screen shows (what else?) Ghostbusters. Who ya gonna call?

Barristas will be makin’ very special mallow concoctions and as for food, it’ll be a crab fest: Crab cakes, buckets of cracked crab, crab & swiss melt, crab salad .. well, you get the picture. So what do crabs hafta do with marshmallows? NOTHIN”! But, I DID tend to be kinda crabby ….

See ya there!

 

It's Snowman Burnin' Day!

Every year in Germany & Switzerland, they have major festivals which celebrate the end of winter with a snowman going up in smoke. The rising smoke is thought to ward off any further snowstorms and beckon in warmer, spring-like weather. I thought a lot of our friends could sure use that, so here for your enjoyment I unveil my latest brainstorm: the Burning (Snow) Man Festival!

You know that Burnin' Man thing they have every year in Black Rock City, Nevada where they all get crazy, blast rock music, beat tom toms and dance around pawtyin' for a week before they burn a big giant dude made of sticks? Well, I thought that combined with Snowman Burnin' Day would a purrfect fit around here. I was SO proud of myself, I thought I was just the brainiest and most original kitty around!

But ... I have been beaten to the punch! Wouldja believe that just 3 weeks ago there was just that very festival held in Port Clinton Ohio? BUT the festival carries on and we have lots of the fine product of the Snowman Brewing Company, our best Mallow Yallow 'nip and I was even able to hire the band that played in Port Clinton. Presenting ..... "The Naked Bacon Band"! I swear I did not make that up, I could NOT make that up! (whisper) I sure hope it ain't Kevin and his bros, mol.

And at NIGHT fall, we will paint our faces, put on our grass skirts and, after a blazing display of fire dancing the dancers will ceremonially ignite the snowman!

How’s that for a kickoff to spring?

 

My presence continues to make itself known at my earth home

Big Bro Will has been busy in his room, clearing stuff out and throwing stuff out. He found a book down there that he remembers wondering a long time ago if I might have peed on. Well (blush) I wouldn't admit it then but of course I did, there was a tomcat usedta pee in the bushes right outside Will's window, the smell would waft in and a girl hasta stand up & declare her property rights, doesn't she?

Evie gave me away, when she went down to see what Will was doin' she beelined straight for that book and sniffed it all over. Busted! Now Mom is all about sentimental value & all that, but she says she draws the line at savin' that book :D

 

Happy Haunted Refrigerator Night!

Falling each October 30th, Haunted Refrigerator Night was created by Thomas and Ruth Roy of Wellcat to find, “what evil lurks in the refrigerators of men… and women… and venture unto the realm of the lower shelf, rear.”

Looking for a way to get into the Halloween spirit that’s a little off the beaten path? Look no further. Turn off the lights, gather friends and family and … who dares to open the haunted fridge? Screeeeee ….. the door opens slowly, the light flickers and what do we find within? Why, almost nothing you will see tomorrow night could be as scary as the mystery packages and flourescent growing "things" that lurk behind the tub of margarine. And then there’s the hidden depths of …. THE VEGGIE DRAWER!!! Face your fears and dare to enter the most chill-inducing place in the house. Brrrrrrr!!!

 

Hey everyone! It's my day!

It's Toasted Marshmallow Day! And I just learned that Marshmallows go all the way back to ancient Egypt, where they made candy from the sweet gooey extract of the Mallow plant. Back then Mallows were something very special reserved just for royalty and the Gods, well of COURSE we all knew that. At least I always did, mol.

I am gonna stock up on gourmet mallows so we can all toast 'em over a fire out back of my cabin. Then O.J. & I will mix ourselves up some Toasted Marshmallow Amore dessert cocktails to round out the night. What a great holiday! -- A. Mallow

 

I'm gettin' my ratty chair back!

One of my favourite things in my whole earth life was this ratty old chair that Mom & Dad had. How many times Mom wanted to get rid of it I will never know, but she couldn’t go through with it because she’d see me curled up in it and say “Mallow loves it so much”. And I did. I broke the backrest down so that it became a little nest that fit me perfectly and no one else.

Someone gave us a cat tree a couple of months ago and the humans decided that if everyone liked it they would finally retire the cat chair and send it up to me for my cabin at the Bridge. Well, the chair is out front, garbage pickup is today and I’ve cleared the perfect cozy spot for my most comfy piece of furniture in any world. When it gets here, I am takin’ a LOOONNG catnap!

 

It's our first anniversary!

Yep, it was one year ago today that Sir Oscar Jon and Angel Dame Mallow took the big plunge over on Cat Channel, and to celebrate we are takin’ another one … right over Niagara Falls in a barrel!

Yeah we know, that is just slightly illegal, but would we let that stop us? Nahhhh! We’re just waitin’ till dark when the Falls are all lit up and the fireworks show is goin’ on. O.J. has worked really hard on our vessel, a deluxe barrel with plush seating, safety restraints and that most important addition of all: a fully stocked bar. The sound system is gonna play “Roll Out the Barrel” as we drink to one whole year of wedded bliss and sail our way into history in our own version of the Yellow Submarine.

So, since no one will see us, how will anyone know we actually did it? That’s where our four videographers come in. K. Steve, K. Bennie and Bee Gee along with Angel Q. Gracie for those tricky aerial shots. Between the four of ‘em, we oughta get at least 30 seconds of usable footage, mol.

So after our triumph join us in the dining lounge at the Tower Hotel overlookin’ the Falls to screen the footage. We’ll fill the barrel with beer, order everything on the menu and the pawty ain’t over till we all get kicked out

 

Happy Friday the 13th!!

Since the full moon is tonight, what better place to have Angel Gracie’s Full Moon Pawty this month than Mallows Bay, with Lily & Jakar (two black cats) hosting and a theme of “Lucky”? But I’m not just bein’ egotistical this time. See, I’ve discovered “The Ghost Fleet of Mallows Bay.” Check it out:

The Ghost Fleet of Mallows Bay

During World War 1 the US Government announced plans to build 1,000 supply ships for the war effort. Boatyards across the country started churning out wooden steamships. But there was a problem: The ships were put together so fast that they were kinda barely seaworthy. And then just as the first hulls were hitting the water, the war ended. The government was left with over 200 obsolete, leaky boats. Long (long, LONG) story short, they ended up in Mallows Bay on the Potomac where they sit today, the largest shipwreck fleet in the Western Hemisphere. And possibly even the world (Yay, we’re #1).

Osprey nesting on the ruins of a ship

Because they’re made of wood, after almost 100 years each vessel has become a mini-ecosystem with trees up to 40 feet high and all kinds of vegetation growing out of ‘em. The wrecks are now home to Osprey, water fowl, and other wildlife. Bald Eagles nest in the nearby trees along the shore. There’s a park there now, with boat ramps and everything. After the entertainment and the great food, O.J. & I are gonna kayak through the wrecks in the moonlight. Then we might or might not have a romantic hideaway ready on one of the ghostie ships. We ain’t tellin’. See you there!

 

What a great day it is today!

It's my birthday and my adoptiversary! AND DDP!! And even though I wasn’t plannin’ on bein’ at the Bridge for this birthday, it got off to a pretty great start. Why you will never guess what was in our driveway this morning. A real honest to goodness Harley. NICE one, too! No, the guy wasn't lost, mol. He's a friend of the pawrents'. I tell ya, the pawrents have just risen on the cool meter in THIS kitty's estimation. I will never wash the driveway again. (Not like I ever DID wash the driveway).

Glad you could make it, there is celebratin’ to do! I have a rockin’ Harley birthday cake, and we have an Extreme Monster Golf Cart Demolition Derby goin’ on.

And since it’s spring, I brought out the pawty food stand. There’s deep fried butter, chocolate covered corn dogs, the whole works. Let’s get this pawty rollin’!

 

Wow! What a weekend!

My hubby O.J. & my pals the biker chicks & I just got back from Fruita, Colorado. What's in Fruita, Colorado, you ask? Why, The “Mike the Headless Chicken Festival”! This is absolutely for real! The story starts on September 10, 1945 when Fruita, Colorado, farmer Lloyd Olsen chose a chicken for his evening meal. Mr. Olsen cut off the bird’s head, but Mike just shook it off and continued trying to peck for food. He lived for 18 months being fed with an eye dropper and went on a national tour as “The Headless Wonder Chicken”. I know we can all relate to Mike’s example that you can live a normal life, even after you have lost your mind.

My Biker Peeps went in the Bike Poker Ride and I entered the Disc Golf Tournament. O.J. went in the wing eatin' contest (Shhh! Don’t tell the girls!) and got a massive bellyache, my biker Peeps had a ball chicken dancin' and I won some cool stuff at chicken bingo.

I brought everyone back a Mike T-shirt. Well, under the circumstances a hat would be a dumb souvenir, wouldn't it?
