Yesterday,Sampy was sitting on top of the kitty castle soaking up the sun which poured through the window above.

I came along and wanted another turn at this; I was laying there before him enjoying the sun earlier. Anyway, I crouched next to the castle and prepared to launch myself at him. He saw me and took one of his "doggie paws" and popped me on top of my head. I didn't like that so I prepared for another launch and this time I landed on top of him. I had my mouth on the scruff of his neck and he wiggled free and I went my separate way when we heard Mommy yell for us to stop being so rough with each other. When Sampy freed himself from my grip, he fell off the top of the castle and got wedged between it and the bottom step. Mommy had to help him get free. She also moved the kitty castle closer to the closet door so he wouldn't get stuck again.

She usually has the kitty castle placed evenly between the closet door and the bottom step and directly under the landing window so we can look outside. She must have moved it slightly when she vacuumed the landing.

Anyway, Sampy's okay. It was scary for him and Mommy. Both are glad that she was home and was able to free him. I'm glad too. I don't want my big brother getting stuck where he can't get out. This was an accident.

Well, anyway, I also like the new litterbox. I took a nice leak in it this morning. It's nice and roomy for us Maine Coon types.

Knock, knock
Who's there?
Bail who?
Bail of fur!

That's me! The big bail of fur. The floof bucket! The walking, living and breathing shag carpet!!!

When Mommy was in the bathroom she heard a loud knocking! At first she thought someone was at the front door. Nope. No company today at all. It was me knocking on the master bedroom closet door. I wanted in there! I felt like exploring! I understand there was a lot of stuff going on in that closet today and I wanted to check it out.

Mommy apparently was moving her clothes around again as it's October and that's when she does the "so-called" seasonal change of her clothing. I think it's so much nicer being a cat as all we have to do is shed our coats in the summer and grow it back in the fall! It surely saves a lot of time this way! Money too as we don't have to wear all that stuff human's do!

Anyway, it's a nice warm day today and we have five open windows to enjoy! I wonder how long this warm spell will last!

I played fun game with Landy this morning. It's called "spring and sniff". This is how it went: I was crouched on the stairs and launched myself at him who was at the top landing. When we were close to each other, I sniffed noses with him and that was it.

Mommy saw this and expected a wrestling match to take place. Nope. I suppose Landy thought I was going to attack him. MOL!!!

Lastly, the temps for the rest of this week will rise to the normal 74 degrees for early October (our area). Sunday, is supposed to hit 80 degrees! About time!

How about that! I'm Diary Pick again today. In fact, I was the only cat who blogged during the weekend. It's all Mommy's fault as she brought out that nasty beast a/k/a the vacuum cleaner and did the whole house! One room is more than enough in my opinion!

Anyway, I thank HQ for this honor!

I also thank my following pawsome friends for their gifts and concats:

1. MILO - cool comment;
2. JERRY - scary bat;
3. VIOLET - cool comment;
4. BUDDIE & Family - pawsome pawmail;
5. HOOCH - cool pumpkin;
6. THE BUSH FURS - cool comment;
7. NAVIN R. JOHNSON-DAVIS - purrty rainbow.

Also, I hope they get rid of those "logon" fleas. They are still hopping about and making us itch and scratch all over. It's really a bummer to have to logon every two minutes.

Well, I'm keeping this one short and hopefully it saves without telling me to logon again.

Both Landy and I saw Willow, a/k/a Torbie Sue hanging out on the side of our front yard. She sat there and meowed at all of us when Mommy had the front door open. I wanted to go outside so much so I could chase her. I know Landy did too. When we see another cat in our yard we have to check them out for sure. Sampy is the same way. I don't think Merl cares about doing that though.

Also, it's been so cold this weekend. I need to grow some more hair fast! This is unseasonably cold for October 1-2. The upper or mid 50's just doesn't get it with any of us! No open windows to enjoy yesterday as it was raining too. Today the sun was out before noon so Mommy opened a couple upstairs windows for a short period of time. This afternoon, it sprinkled a bit.

We want it to get warmer than this. We're not used to this so soon. Mommy even changed the bed linen and put on flannel sheets and comforter. That'll keep all of us nice and warm tonight.

Anyway, it's dinner time.

I'm diary pick today! Pawsome!! I suppose HQ loves my complaining about the obsessive-compulsive "logon" fleas we have. They want you to logon all the time once you're logged in! Unacceptable, I still say. Something is amiss!

I do like being in the diary limelight though.

So far this is a test because this diary may not save and ask me to logon again . . .

Here goes . . .

Shaky purrs,


P.S. This diary saved through Firefox. So here I am back through Firefox to thank the following pawsome friends for their concats and gifts:

1. BUDDIE & Family - pawsome pawmail;
2. HOOCH & Crew - purrty blue rosette;
3. VIOLET - cool comment;
4. SQUIRREL - cool comment;
5. DA TABBIES O TROUT TOWNE - cool comment;
6. ELSA - purrty heart;
7. THE BUSH FURS - cool comment.

This the second time I wrote a nice diary and it was sucked up by fleas! The diary never saved! Instead, I got a page telling me to log in again. HISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!

Is anycat having this problem? How many times do we have to log in once we're in? Boy oh boy do I have a cattitude now!

I mentioned about being the spokescat for all of us wishing Landy a happy birthday 'cause Mommy has to go to bed early. Now she's up later helping me do my diary all over again!!!

Anyway, we had a salmon pawty and the salmon was out of this world! Nice and pink and soft and yummy!

Well, I'm cutting it short and purray that this one saves without telling me to log in again.

I had an appointment at the vet's yesterday at 9:00 a.m. Mommy gave me the privilege of trying out the new canvas cat carrier. I sang during the car ride and when I arrived at the vet's. I'm usually a quiet kitty at home except for an occasional "breep". I was as talkative and singing as much as a Siamese but prettier soprano notes: "mrrrreowmmmmmmm, mrrrreowmmmm, mrrrreowmmmmm". This is the only time I really meow and it's a more intense one as you can see.

Anyway, I gained a little weight: 12.5 lbs now compared to the 12.1 last year. My temperature was normal and my heart sounded good. My eyes are fine, my ears had a little wax in them. As to my teeth, I have the tip missing off of one of my top fangs and some tartar on my molars. My bladder and tummy felt good too.

All in all, I'm a healthy boy! Mommy and I are glad to hear this!

Also, after Mommy dropped me off at home, she went grocery shopping for food for her, us and two containers of litter.

When she got home, her cell phone was paging her. She found out that it was her Dad (our grandpaw). He asked her, "Guess where I'm at?" She first said, "Colorado" and he replied, "here in College Park" and "Can you come over and we'll go to the Red Lobster for dinner." Mommy was excited and was gone until 9:00 p.m. last night. She told me she had a good time and she had salmon for dinner. That's okay by me as I only like the kind of salmon that the man in the yellow raincoat promotes anyway!!

Her Dad and Mary will be in town the rest of this week at most so she'll probably be seeing them mid week.

Anyway, today is another lazy Sunday for us kitties. I've been laying under the coffee table and Sampy's been sleeping in the kitty castle, and the other two somewhere in the dining room. Of course, Cam's in her bathroom snoring up a storm. She snores like an old human man!!! Sampy's snored a few times, but nothing like her. You can hear her snores from downstairs!!!

I hope everycat enjoys our new fall decor!

Purrs & Breeps to all,

The test worked so here goes a real diary from me, the Bail!

First of all, I thank NAVIN R. JOHNSON for the lovely rainbow filled with concats for my diary pic last week, and all those who sent me some Jolly Rogers for Talk Like a Pirate Day.

Also, Mommy scheduled me a vet visit for this coming Saturday. No shots or anything like that, though. Just a physical! I'll even get to try out one of the new cat carriers. Maybe the cloth one (if I can fit in it).

The vet will also notice that I have a chipped top fang. I really can't remember how I did that. It must have happened while I chomping down on some dry food.

Lastly, tomorrow is the first day of fall so Mommy will be making us some fancy frames for our pages this weekend. We use Scrapbook Factory Deluxe No. 5 or, or

That's about it. Have a pawsome night.

Purrs & Breeps,
