OMC, Landy and I are in the Diary Limelight today! How cool is that!!

Thanks Diary Gal for honoring us today!

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

1. ANGEL BUDDIE & Family - pawsome pawmail;
2. MAC & IVY - lovely blue rosette;
3. INKY - lovely tulips & cool comment;
4. BEEPERS - cool comment;
5. MILO BLUE EYES - cool comment;
6. RAJ - cool comment;
7. SMOKEY JOE ANGEL - heart.
8. PLATELICKER - pink rosette & cool comment;
9. SMILEY CASANOVA - cool comment & pawsome pawmail.

Also, this is our first sunny Saturday in a while. Also, there's no snow in the forecast all week long. Hopefully, things will get warmer and warmer before April's gone. So far, the warmest it has gotten is the upper 60's. Mommy told me that many Aprils in the past had temps ranging from 50-80 degrees. This year, we have yet to see 70 degrees. I long for that so Mommy can open the windows. Things are just starting to slowly bud. The neighbor's daffodils are the only flowers that are in full bloom. The oak trees are now budding adding more color to their bleak and dreary state.

Come on spring, push up the temps some more soon!

Well, that's about it from me. Landy will write later on today. Mommy has to charge her IPad battery.

Today is the day that I turn a big 9 years old! It's hard to believe that I'm that old! It seems like yesterday when Mommy picked me up from Last Chance Animal Rescue in the late spring of 2005. I was a cute little fluffball with, believe it or not, a ringed tail. Of course, all the rings disappeared after my tail got floofier.

Also, I thank HQ for the birthday cake and my friends as follows for their gifts:

1. ANGEL REBBY - Bluebird of Happiness;
2. LEXI & Family - Bluebird of Happiness;
3. HAZEL MAZEL - Bluebird of Happiness;
4. BIRTHDAY & GOTCHA CLUB - Ladybug with Cake Attachment;
5. HOOCH & Family - Football;
6. BEEPERS - Ladybug;
7. GLEEK & Family - Yummy Cupcake;
8. FRISKIE & Family - Cute Hugging Kitty;
9. MAC & IVY - Yummy Shrimp;
10. HARLEY, CODY & RAJ Bkubird of Happiness.

Lastly, we have a cloudy day. The weather people are still talking about the sun coming out this afternoon and the temps should reach the mid 60's to lower 70's. I surely hope so. I want it to be sunny and warm on my special day.

WOWZA! There's a lot of birthdays in our family this month! First of all our angel Max (whom journeyed to the Bridge way before I was born) has his birthday today along with our Grandpa (Mommy's Dad) who turns 95. Tomorrow is my big day wherein I turn 9 years old! And then Sampy celebrates his 17th on April 6th! That's a lot of birthdays! Happy birthday to us all and anyone else who has an April birthday!

Lastly, a mourning dove was driving me crazy this morning. It was sitting on the outside windowsill ledge of the master bedroom. I swear it was looking in and laughing at me! I then pounced at it. Of course, I couldn't get at it as the window was closed. I'm fine and the silly dove flew away. A few minutes later it came back and sat on a branch of the redbud tree. Mommy took a pic of this and it's on FB right now for all to see.

Well, I'm going to cut this one short. Have a pawsome day, my friends!

Can you believe that last Monday we had 5 inches of snow! Now, this week we have two warm days in a row. Yesterday it hit 70 degrees. Today, it's expected to hit 68 degrees! Unfortunately, winter returns tomorrow with temps only in the mid 30's. I wish Mother Nature would hurry up and make up her mind about keeping it warm around here!

Anyway, spring is officially here on March 20th. Daylight savings time has already started so it's light outside when Mommy gets home from work. The only trouble is, it's awfully dark outside when we get up 5:45 a.m.

Oh well!

Got to run,

A Poem for February 2nd

We missed all the ice!
Now isn't that nice!
We missed all the snow!
Now way to go!
Now we got rain
And I can't complain!
As it'll be sunny later
With temps rising 50 or greater!
But with all this lovely and nice
On Saturday we'll pay the price


Two doves sat on the outside windowsill daily
When they saw me they asked, "will you eat us Bailey?"
I said, "no way will I do that
as I'm a dry food-eating cat."
But if you were chickens, be assured I would eat you good
'cause chicken is my other favorite food!"

Also from July 21, 2011:


I'm Mad Bail and we've got do get out of this so-called "Heat Dome". It's just out and out nasty and unbearable! This heat and humidity needs to be chased away! We need relief in the form of RAIN!!!

So, all my Catster friends who are also under this "Heat Dome", let's do a raindance and purray for rain to cool it off!


There's more to come in the next few days.

I too am sad about the upcoming demise of our beloved Catster! I was not quite a year old when I joined this wonderful site on March 14,2006. I've made a lot of friends which are still friends on FB and have lost a lot of friends due to their journey to the Bridge. My dearest girlfriend, Colleen and my sister Camille Rose passed a day after the other. That was an intense year 2012.

On the other side, I've written a lot of poetry about the weather and birds. I've parodied songs, titles of songs and sayings and gave new twists to some of my inventive stories, such as "Nicole and the Super Soaker", my pawty with the frat boys who used to live next door, reciting poetry to two mourning doves, etc.

During this week, I'll feature these highlights of my diaries. Mommy has to get some free time to do this between work and doctors' appointments.

Got to run for now.

Wowza! I'm one of the Diary Picks today! Thank you Diary Gal for this most pawsome honor.

I also thank my pawsome friends for their concats:

1. ANGEL BUDDIE & Family - pawsome pawmail;
2. SMILEY CASSANOVA - pawsome pawmail;
3. PLATELICKER - cool comment;
4. GLEEK - cool comment;
5. IVY, MAC & Family - cool snowman.

Also, we got a cold, burr-freezing day today. It was only 7 degrees this morning and now it's a whopping 12 degrees. Bring on the spring! I like my windows open days and not this closed in cold days.

Lastly, my ear still has a scab on it. It's healing nicely and the scab will drop off when it's good and ready.

OMC! Mommy's losing it! She had my ear update posted on Sampy's page. So MICHEAL and PLATELICKER, thanks for your concerns for my ear on Sampy's page. Sampy never received an ear piercing from Landy, just Merl and I.

She's going to put a copy of that onto my page but leave the one on Sampy's page because she'll lose the comments.

Anyway, we had about 2-3 inches of snow yesterday. Mommy had to cancel her doctor' s
appointment and reset for next Wednesday. The roads were nice and clear. Unfortunately, her car had a solid sheet of ice underneath the snow. Most of the ice was on the windshield causing the wipers to be stuck until it melted enough for her to chip it away.

We don't like the ice at all around here. A little bit of snow is okay to watch it fall and Mommy likes to take pics of it. She took six of them and loaded them onto FB last night.

As to my ear today, it's looking better than yesterday. The underneath scab fell off and the top one is still there. No swelling is there so far. That's good news!

Anyway, it's nap time gain. You know how cats get.

First of all, I concat Joss in having the first Diary Pick in our family for 2014! Way to go, Joss!

Secondly, as many of you may know by now, Landy and I got into a nasty fight early this morning wherein he pierced my left ear! This is a repeat performance of what he did to Merl last December. I don't know what his problem is! It looks like his only defense is to bite ears whenever us bigger kitties have a tussle with him; except he doesn't do this with Sampy or Joss. I'm baffled and so is Mommy as Landy and I don't fight.

Anyway, my ear piercing isn't as nasty as Merl's was. So far, it isn't swollen and there's a small scab on both sides of my poor ear. All I can say, is Ouch! It really did hurt when he bit me. He better not do it again!

Third, we had a chicken party to celebrate Joss' Diary Pick and the New Year. It was yummy, of course!

Lastly, I wish everycat a safe and Happy New Year,
