Hey everycat! First of all, I extend my belated concats to Bail and Merl for their DDP's yesterday, and Merl for his second one today! Merl's on a roll. It looks like January is a lucky month for those two. Bail had the first one on January 3rd.

Anyway, I want to mention that I had a brief "meowting" yesterday because it was so warm. Of course, I was held on Mommy's lap while she sat on the back porch wooden chair. I loved it! Of course, it could have been better had she let me down so I could sit on the porch and cruise the back yard like I used to. She didn't let me do so as I'm unsteady on my left back leg (arthritis). Not fair! She's got arthritis and drives a car and walks lopsided because of her bone-on-bone right knee.

Pawrents are the biggest hypocrites!! Do as I say and not as I do!

Anyway, today won't be as warm as it was only 30 degrees out at 6:00 a.m. I think it's supposed to be in the mid 40's. Yesterday, I think it was in the mid 60's!

Well, that's it folks! Have a pawsome Sunday, my friends,

Burrrrrrrrrrrrrr! That's what we have for temps around here. It's 19 degrees this morning and it's the coldest day of 2012 so far. December was pretty hot with temps ranging from 43 to 63 during the day.

Because of this cold, which also happened yesterday, Mommy had three cats onboard in her bed last night; me, Merl and Landy. Bail slept wherever he sleeps downstairs and Cam in her usual bathroom spot behind the door near the heat vent.

Anyway, Mommy goes back to work today. She's not looking forward to the phones ringing off the wall nor the pileup on her desk. That's what's a bummer about going back to work after a vacation or "staycation". Mommy, it's time to switch gears!

Well, that's it from me. I'm going to take my after breakfast nap.

First of all, I concat Bail on his DDP today! Way to go, bro!!

Secondly, sure Mommy got a new cat bed and placed it next to the cat tree upstairs. It replaces the old cotton one that I took to sleeping in a lot lately. So far, I slept in the new one twice for short naps.

Most of the time, I sleep in the wicker bed next to the heat vent in the living room. This is my favorite vent as it's in a little cubbyhole between a chair and a bookcase. It's like a nice warm fort to me.

Also, it's been cold as you know what the past couple days, and the weather people are predicting some snow for today. So far, I see no indication of any snow as the sun's out. It's cold enough to snow though. They're also calling for 35 mph winds! I hope we don't lose power during this!

Anyway, I'm going to let Mommy get ready to go out. She has some errands to run and then she goes back to work tomorrow. We're going to miss her terribly starting then.

Lastly, I hope everycat and their families had a pawsome holiday season. Soon it'll be Valentine's Day! Can you believe that?

I hope everycat had a pawsome Catmas! I did! It's been very busy for Mommy even if she's on "staycation". Lots of stuff has happened since my entry of Dec. 22nd.

First of all, Auntie Mary came by for Christmas dinner and to exchange gifts. On Dec. 27th, Mommy celebrated Christmas with her brother and sister-in-law. The next day, her car was in the shop. Also, the vacuum cleaner stopped working on Catmas morning due to it sucking up one of our toys.

Today, Mommy took the vacuum to the Orek shop. The owner told her there's something stuck in the motor and the only way to get it out is to take the machine apart. Mommy told him she believed it sucked up a cat toy. She's hoping the motor isn't damaged. If it is, she may as well get a new one because it'll more than likely cost as much to fix it.

Lastly, Landy, Merl and I watched "Super 8" with Mommy. It was scary, but not enough for us kitties to hide under the couch. Mommy wants to watch it again as it was so suspenseful and full of action. Great plotting too!

Well, that's about it. I'm going to close for now. I feel the sandman is approaching.

OMC! OMC! The phanton pooper strikes again! He/she decided to use the upstairs cat activity cube as a litterbox! How disrespectful! Mommy found three LARGE poopies and she believes they belong to no other cat in the household but me as I deposit those huge Maine Coon type that look like king size tootsie rolls! I'm not fessing up to this nor are any of us. You know, Bail's poop can sometimes be large too and how about Merl? Landy for sure is off the hook as his poopies are tiny! And Cam only goes in the bathroom, and she sometimes she misses her box as she's always on the run when she sees one of her bros coming toward her.

Lastly, this phantom has never been caught in the act. He's very clever not to let Mommy see him do this.

That's about it. This ongoing mystery continues . . .

It's Mommy's turn to have a birthday! Her's is the last birthday of this year and in fact it's exactly a week before Catmas. Mommy was due to be born on Catmas and decided to come early. MOL! If she didn't, her first name would have been "Carol".

Anyway, she got the tree mostly decorated and it's in the computer room. I think she'll let Bail and me look at it. I know she won't let Landy or Merl as those two are climbers. As to Cam, she's afraid to go into any other room besides and bathroom and hallway.

Also, Catmas shopping is partially done. She has to get more stuff. Hopefully, she'll have it all done soon.

Well, that's about it. I'm going to cut it short.

Purrs & Breeps to all.

Just a note to let everycat know that I'm hanging in there. There are some issues which I can't (nor can Mommy, in fact)figure out. Sometimes lately, my back feet slip on the kitchen floor when I walk on it. Sometimes, I don't want to go in there because of this. She thinks maybe I have arthritis as I also walk slower and don't run down the stairs like I used to. I also don't have those big chase matches with Landy anymore. And to top it off, sometimes when I jump onto Mommy's bed, I fall back off. But yet I can launch myself from the bed onto the window perch without any problem at all. ???? weird!

There is one more thing . . . my compulsive grooming is still going on except I go for the sides near my armpits and front legs; sometimes the back legs. If Mommy gives me a head rub or neck rub, my head quivers and I then shake my head as if it itches or tickles. Of course, I won't tell her what's wrong so she's looked into my ears several times to see it they are clean and mite free. Of course, there's nothing in them.

I suppose she's going to take me to the vet any day now to see if he can find out why I'm so itchy and wobbly.

Anyway, my appetite is okay and I'm not throwing up or breathing strangely.

I'd appreciate some purrs. They always help.

I give my concats to Landy today for getting one of the Diary pics!

Also, I understand we're supposed to get snow tomorrow. That's something else! Today, it got up to 60 degrees! We'll find out tomorrow just how much snow there will be. I'll post tomorrow.

Just a short note to let everycat know we're doing pretty good. Our Catmas pages are finally up and running! Woo-Hoo! It took Mommy some time though between being very busy all week and having a lot of chores to take care of today including getting her hair trimmed.

She also bought us a lot of cat food, litter and a new container of catnip (Whisker City - the kick tail kind!) In fact, she let Merl and I have some already.

Anyway, tomorrow is another day and perhaps we'll have more time to do our diaries!

Purrs & Breeps to all,

Well, here I am with my pawsome Thanksgiving day. I'm a social butterfly cat so I stayed downstairs the whole time. Of course, I was good and didn't jump on the dining room table either. I was in the living room in one of the cat beds near the vent while the food was being prepared and eaten.

Also, before the food was prepared, Mary picked me up and held me. I gave her one of those special neck-grabber hugs that I always give Mommy. I love my Auntie Mary and she deserved one of those type hugs. Mommy took a video of us together which turned out nicely!

Also, by the way, I slept through the turkey adventure when Landy allegedly stole some big pieces set aside for the rest of us kitties. Mommy made sure to give us some Friday and Saturday, though.

Lastly, when the meal was over with, Landy and I sat on Auntie Mary's lap and purred up a storm.

All in all, Thanksgiving was a wonderful, happy and blessed day for all of us. I also hope everycat enjoyed this special day!

Purrs & Breeps,
