It's another Friday and we are going to have a small party. I don't think everyone is going to stay up that late. We have only a few rosettes left so we will not make a night of it. I'm ready, but Sampy decided to take a stroll around the house. Cammie's sitting on the porch waiting for him to come back. Merl and I are just about ready and same for Mommy. We'll probably do this around 9:oo p.m. Maryland time.

Early this morning there was a Siamese cat on the back porch stealing Cammie's food. I don't know who's cat he is, but he sure has pretty blue eyes. There is another cat that comes by and that's the polka-dotted one. Mommy and the neighbors believe the polka-dotted one is a stray.

Sampy, Merl and I looked out the back door window at the Siamese who looked back at us and wasn't scared at all.

Not much is going on around here today. It's a rather quite Friday. It would be nice if there was a big party somewhere like the one Monkey had last weekend.

Well, I got to round up everyone. Mommy's going to rattle the catnip canister out the back door. A lot of times that brings Sampy running in.

Later and breep to all my Catster friends.

This morning when Mommy had the door open in order to get the bee out of the kitchen, I pulled my first escape. I ran all the way down the back steps and toward the neighbor's yard . . . . and then Mommy caught me and brought me back in.

Grrrrrr. Just when I was really getting to like this adventure, she put a stop to it.

My next plan to escape will be tonight when Mommy feeds Cammie.

TONIGHT: As soon as Mommy opened the door for Sampy and to feed Cammie, I escaped. She only saw a streak of gray (blue) as I flew down the stairs. At first, she thought Sampy had changed colors! Ha-ha-ha-ha!

She was right behind me too, and I kept running and then I stopped. She grabbed me and brought me back in again. She told me I was a bad boy.

I did enjoy the two minute adventure as it felt good to have the grass tickle the bottoms of my feet and to hear the birds chirping and the wind blowing through my coat. Mommy, why, oh why can't I be allowed outside?

This is my third escape. My first one happened when I was a little guy pre Catster days.

Today was the first time that I tried it since then. Mommy says, "I hope this won't be an ongoing thing with you now".

Sampy is a part time outdoors cat (a little outing in the morning before Mommy goes to work and a little one after she comes home from work). Cammie is totally outdoors unless the weather is bad. She hates it indoors and will hide the whole time she's indoors. Merl and I are totally indoor kitties. Merl has been pretty good. He has never walked out the door on his own. Mommy held him in her arms a few times, but that was it. He's not very interested in the outdoors.

What else can I say. I wanted to escape for a while. I wanted to see what it was like beyond the walls of this house. I wanted to see what Cammie is raving all about!!

I don't know how to end this one. I guess I'll have to deal with being an indoors kitty. I have so far done it before today.

Got to go now. Sampy has something to say.

Breep to all my Catster friends .

Mommy started tickling me on the bottoms of my feet with a kitty teaser!

She did this to see if I would play. I'm not too much in a playing mood right now. I think I swung at the thing a couple of times and then let Merl take over. It's 9:00 pm. and that's my nappy time. Merl's jumping around like he ate a whole bag of catnip. I don't know what's got into him tonight.

Also, Mommy put my entry on pause because she had to check on Sampy. He's back now after taking a stroll around the yard.

Mommy got home late and bought a bunch of cat food and litter and of course, she stopped at Boston Market. We all had some chicken.

She played that trick on me again and handed me a stringbean. I grabbed it fast with my teeth and spit it back out. Remember, Mommy, I don't do veggies!

Anyhoo, I got to run. It's getting late and Sampy wants his turn.

Breep to all my Catster friends.

Mommy was looking at me this evening and said, You look more like a Norwegian Forest Cat than a Maine Coon. Your face has a different shape to it. Not totally a square muzzle and your body isn't as rectangular as Sampy and your coat is thicker than Sampy's Hmmmm."

What can I say. Petsmart had me down as a domestic medium hair and my hair isn't medium, it's long, long, and full (except for my ruff, but that's coming back folks!)

The vet put me down as a domestic longhair. As you can see by my baby picture added about a week ago, I wasn't exactly bald!

I feel like a Maine Coon/Norwegian mix . . . . a Cooneegie or would you call it a Norcoon? I really can't say except my parents were pretty hairy too.

Anway, whatever I am, my Mommy, brothers and sister still love me.

Change of subject. Merl really had me running and wrestling this morning. I think I dropped a few pounds after that workout!

If I ever lose my boyish figure, I know who will be my personal trainer.

Well, I got to go now. I'm going to nuzzle next to the pillows on the living room couch and take a little nappy . . . . zzz . . . .

Breep to all my Catster friends and I hope everybody is doing alright.

Boy, did I ever sleep yesterday. Mommy uploaded some "day after" photos of me. Check them out. I was really out-of-it looking!

Today, I slept some more (under the living room chair) while Mommy went to work.

If there is another party, I'm game. I love music and dancing and of course, catnip!

Mommy has a bunch of CD's playing that she put together alternating oldies with newer hits: For example: Led Zeppelin's "Going to California"; Lindisfarne's "Lady Eleanor"; Coldplay's "Clocks"; Evanescence's "My Imortal" and "Bring Me to Life"; Sheryl Crowe's "Everyday is a Winding Road. The list goes on. All this music is playing while we jump and swing for the streamers on a stick.

A little later, I'm chillin to the music while Merl swings at my flicking tail.

Mommy also tried the pink brush on my beautiful blue coat and I loved it. I let her know by purring and rubbing and sitting up on my haunches.

Lastly, I'm also against declawing and I put in my opinion at the forum yesterday along with Sampy, Merl and Cammie. Declawing is cruel! It ought to be banned!

Got to go now, breep to all my Catster friends.

P.S. My ruff is coming back! I think it's because of the air conditioning in the house. I get a little cold under the collar. And how can I forget we had another salmon party!

When Mommy came home late she found a message that I was invited to Monkey's party. I begged her to let me go and she did. WOW!!! I did have a blast and met some nice feline friends. But the only drawback is I couldn't find Monkey. Later I learned that he got locked out (I wasn't sure if it was in a separate bedroom or a closet).

Anyway, I really had a good time and I don't even know if he came out before I left. I stayed late because I got there late.

Now, I'm going back to sleep. Mommy fed me some turkey and giblets (yucky yuck!). I tried to bury it and ate some dry food instead. Good old dry food always appeals to me.

I'm tired, got to go. Maybe I'll write something later when I'm more awake.

Mommy, I'm not in the mood to have my picture taken today so every time you aim that thing at me, I'm going to do the following:

1. Close my eyes;

2. Make the flash hit my eyes so they look like demon eyes;

3. Run and hide behind the TV or under the bed;

4. Face sideways or backwards.

Everybody, your Mommy or Daddy will give up for a while if you do all of the above. Only drawback, they always come back with that camera.

Don't get me wrong. Sometimes I do like my picture taken because I'm a very handsome young guy. There are other times like today that I'm shy or just not in the mood to have that flash in my face!

Another subject, we met some cute kittens last night and are starting to hear back from them via the computer. It's really nice to make friends!

Got to go now. Mommy is on her way to Daddy Rob's.

Sampy will speak tonight.

Breep to all my Catster friends.

Hey, Gray Cloud here! Just thought I'd go by the other part of my name as a change of pace.

We're going to have another party, we all have eaten and are ready to roll! The only thing that will prevent us is a thunderstorm. I understand there is to be one tonight. I hope not.

A little earlier Sampy ran upstairs and I followed him to see what he was up to. Lately he doesn't do that much running. I gues he got a burst of energy.

I hope to meet some more friends tonight. It'll be an adventure.

On this weekend there will probably be another photo shoot. Mommy would like to know how to add music to our websites. It would be nice if she could figure out how to do it. She's kind of new at making websites. She has another one with for Bentley and Jasmine Bibette and that was her first time (last year). She would also like to know how to do flash videos for our sites. It would really be cool. Right now she does fancy collages and scrapbooking type of photos to add to our sites. She plans on more of this in the future too.

Well, I got to go now. I don't want to hog the computer too long. Sampy has to say something and so does Cammie.

Breep to all my Catster friends and Buddie. I hope he's getting better.

I've been a very affectonate kitty lately toward Mommy.

Last night after Mommy got into bed, I jumped up next to her and started purring. I haven't done this in a long time. I purred and purred and rubbed and even started to knead a little. Mommy had a Peter Gabriel song playing really low and I had to stay for that one. I then jumped down and let her sleep.

This morning Merl and I had a game of chase and tumble, you know up and down the stairs and we completed the game by wrestling on the dining room rug.

This evening I chased Sampy up the stairs and boy was he ever angry at me. He yelled KAK, KAK, KAK, MRRRAAAAAAHHHHH! and Mommy told us to break it up.

You see, I believe in vigorous exercise. I need my workouts every day to keep my boyish handsome figure.

Well, I got to go now. Sampy is back and he wants to do his entry. He's the spokescat about Friday coming up.

Breep to all my Catster friends and have a Happy BIRTHDAY Monkey!

Extra, extra read all about it. Merl finally caught the &*%$@~~ fly!

It showed it's ugly body (Mommy calls it "Brundle Fly"). It was on the kitchen window and Merl jumped up high, bopped it and while he did so, he brought down my oasis (see on my website the last two pix). Water everywhere! It was still gurgling out of the bottle before Mommy could bring it up. It soaked the kitchen floor and spilled into MY food bowl too. All this for a ^&%$#@ fly.

Yeh, "Brundle Fly". Then, this isn't all of it. The fly was wounded, still crawling slowly and then Merl gobbled it up! Merl the fly slayer! End of story.

Just thought I'd share this. Merl will probaly chew me out for telling of his adventure. I just couldn't stop myself. You see I saw some of this happen.

Bye for now and Sampy will write tonight. Happy birthday Calvin. Sampy says it's your big day today. Enjoy it.

Breep to everybody else in the Catster world!
