"Mommy, how dare you give me another bath! I was clean enough. I'm always clean enough! Doesn't my tongue work enough to get my coat clean?"

Mommy gave me a bath in the kitchen sink. That's the sink with the "sprayer". Boy, did I hate that even more. She then stopped using that and used a pitcher instead. Still that's scary too.

I had to endure all this mess because I have a cat show on Saturday. @@@##%^&!!

Anyway, while she was washing me, I made sure she got good and wet too. I gave her the wet T-shirt look. When she was done, it took two towels to get me somewhat dry.

Now, I'm licking myself further dry. Merl and Sampy looked at me and said, "You look funny"

Well, anyway, breeeeeep to all and I don't envy any show cats out there that are going through this same thing tonight.

I am really a happy cat today! Thank you Catster for picking me. My Mommy thanks you too. This is my first time and I am so overjoyed that I'm dancing and singing. Breeeeeeepity Breep!

I have my big show on Saturday and I'm glad the bath horror is overwith. That was more scary than the movie "The Grudge"!

Anyhow, I missed Sampy today . . . he pulled a "I don't want to come in the house when Mommy calls me" today. He had to wait until Mommy came home from work so he could get back in.

I must go now. I'm tired and the window seat calls me. Breep to all you Catsters and my Catster buddies!

There are two means of refuge from the misery of life; music and cats.
- Albert Schweitzer

Okay, how about that one?

Cats and Music is the theme of the cat show I'll be going to tomorrow. They are having a cage decoration contest there to . . . it has to do with of course the theme of Cats and Music. It is for all household pet cats like me and they are going to pick the "American Feline Idol".

Rock on Catsters!!!! Mommy hasn't had time to do anything fancy for my cage, but she did some collage type of art work to be framed and put on the top of the cage. It has pictures of all of us cats with a musical note background.

Anyway, Rock On again.

Wish me luck and I'll let you all know how many ribbons I score.

Breeeeeep to all you Catsters and my Catster buddies

Well, everybody, I did pretty good. I made the top 10 out of 40 cats in two rings. The third ring, I didn't get anything. In the two rings, I came in second best cat. I won a trophy (really neat looking with a gold star on top of it) and a blue and white bowl with a kitty and butterflies design on it, and of course, I got two second place cat rosettes.

Mommy is really proud of me. All I have to say is, I'm glad I'm home now because, as all cat shows are, us cats miss a lot of sleep. Our Mommies or Daddies running us back and forth to many rings is exhausting, and being touched by many strangers can be very stressful for some (me included). I'm a shy guy around strangers. I let them touch me, I'm good with the judges, I never hiss or growl or screech at them and I'm very receptive to touch. But there are several things I do not do at a cat show which I always do at home:

1. Eat;
2. Pee;
3. Play.

And this is because I'm not totally comfortable there; somewhat more than before, but not fully. This is only my fourth show. It takes a while. Bentley started coming around at his fourth show.

Also, Mommy bought us all a new cat tree and two toys. I put my dibs on the new cat tree . . . Sampy jumped in it first, but I was the one who SLEPT in it. Merl jumped up a few times and used the scratching post portion of it and so did Sampy.

Last, but not least we had another "chicken party" in my honor.

I'm tired now (again) after my long adventure.

BREEP to all!

We all slept late today. The cat show tired out Mommy and I.

I love my new cat tree (I say it's mine because Merl and Sampy don't sleep in it yet and they don't use it that much either).

Yesterday, I can't remember when, but it was after the cat show, Mommy took videos of me and Merl playing with our new toys (a ball on a stick and four streamers on a stick). One video you could hear the birds chirping in the background because the window was open. They other one was a "musical" video where Merl and I jumped and swung to the music of a Lindisfarne Celtic instrumental. CATS AND MUSIC again!

Later, we got really tired and nodded off together in a wicker basket. Mommy took some really cute pictures of us. She's thinking of sending them to a magazine called "Cat Fancy".

Well, that's about all, I'm tired again. So is Merl and Sampy.

BREEEEP >^..^< >^..^< TO ALL!!

Today is not my favorite day either! I wanted to feel the sun on my beautiful gray bod (blue, whatever!) and didn't get to do it because it was rainy and cloudy all day long. I slept most of the day while Mommy was at work and had that little burst of energy that Merl mentioned and I tired out soon after that.

Not much going on here today. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ is the word for the day.

Bye for now and of course Breep to All!

Such a beautiful day it was today. I got to sun myself in the bathroom window and watch the birdies.

When Mommy came home, there was a fly buzzing around in the dining room. I stood up and wacked the kitchen doorjamb where it landed, but it got away! I want to catch a fly again! Merl tells me he got a little one yesterday and ate it whole. He gets all the luck!

Not much else going on. I going to nap in my new cat tree for now, bye, bye
and of course, breep to all!

Right now Merl and I are playing peekaboo around the bedspread in the computer room. Merl is under the bed and I am on the other side. We keep springing upon each other. I push the bedspread inward then Merl pushes it the opposite direction.

Sampy saw all this activity and he left the room. I guess he didn't want to get pounced upon by either of us.

Now, I'm under the bed and Merl is on the opposite side. We like, switched places. Poor Merl is trying to find me. Heh, Heh. I'm still under the bed and he doesn't know it! He started picking on Mommy now and when he turned his back I crawled out from under the bed and left the room. He finally found me at my dish eating.

I fooled Merl!

Well, today was nice, sunny and warm and all of us got to enjoy it.

Breep to all you Catsters and my Catster friends!

Hey, it's the Bail. Did you all miss me? As you know we couldn't do our diaries because of the thunderstorm last night. Now we're all making up for it. Sampy dictated his this morning, Merl just did his (aren't I a good guy letting them two go first?) I think so.

Anyhoo, today was beautiful! So sunny and all the birds were flitting about outside. I wish they'd fly into my mouth! Drool, drool, drool! Merl and I played this morning and then I picked on Sampy by chasing him up the stairs. It's a perfect Friday night right now, and of course Mommy has her music playing.

She's got Fairport Convention on now blasting.

I also want everybody to know that I, too, love my Mommy and will try to be extra affectionate to her. I am not as affectionate as Sampy or Merl. Those two are purr-a-holics. I only purr once in a while and it is when I get fed and when I say goodnight to Mommy before she falls to sleep.

Well, that's about all that's going on . . . . I'm tired. It's my naptime.

I was up early (as usual) running up and down the stairs and yelling my loudest "Breeps" for Merl to join in on the fun. He did.

Later on I spent time sleeping in "MY" cat tree while Merl was taken to the vet. After he came back we enjoyed a sitting and birdwatching session from the bathroom window. Mommy took a couple of pictures of us two side-by-side. I wonder how they'll come out.

Right now I'm very tired and I can't think of much to say. My cat tree beckons . . . .
