Around 9:30 last night I was minding my own business, chillin' out on my sister, Autumn's bed, when all of a sudden, I was picked up and thrown down the steps to the lower level. Flying right down behind me was my two sisters, Violet and Samoa. How rude can you get?? What is goin' on here, I demanded!
Mommy and Daddy were talking about tornados and bad weather. Oh yea, I did hear some thunder and saw flashing lights out the window. I should have known when Samoa was hanging around bothering me. She is afraid of thunder and lightening ~ the big baby!
Then the lights went out - and we're not even in Georgia! We're all sitting in the study, in the dark, but who cares - we can see in the dark. Mommy and Daddy needed flashlights. Everyone was very scared, but what did I do? I found the food bowl! I was calm as a cucumber. Hey - the litter box is down here too. This tornado stuff is pretty cool. Then the all clear came and we had to go back upstairs and go to bed.
But the fun didn't end there! I decided in the middle of the night that I needed to give myself a bath. I was laying on my mommy's leg, and I did the heavy duty bath ~ you know, lots of licking, scratching, biting at my feet. It woke her up and she tried to get me to quit, but you just don't stop in the middle of a bath! Of course, I got to finish my bath, and then a little snack ~ lots of munching and noise to keep everyone awake.
And even more excitement today ~ no electricity for the whole day! Mommy was so bored. I told her I never worry about not having electricity. I did miss my computer time, but I taught her some things to do when there isn't electricity. You know, take a nap, eat, take another nap, bug my sister. . . .
The big news about the storm is a huge tree that came crashing down in our yard. I'll write more about that later because it is big news around here according to the squirrels. They are about as stupid as the birds.
Time to check the weather. . . . .

Well, I decided that my first entry in my diary should be about how stupid birds are in Kentucky!
Just this morning as I was laying in the spot of sunlight that came into the living room, I heard all this noise. I was a little irritated because it woke me from my beauty sleep.
It sounded like someone was beating on a metal pipe or something. It was hard to get back to sleep when this noise continued on and on.
Then I heard squawking - yup, it was squawking. I got a little interested when I heard the squawking cause I know that sound from my "stray" years. It is the sound of "dinner"!
Mommy and Daddy got a little interested too - Mommy was checking out the fireplace, and Daddy went outside. Then I heard them say something about a woodpecker.
Well, the only woodpecker I know is Woody, and it was Saturday, so maybe he had come for a visit in between doing his TV shows. Pretty soon, my two sisters were in the room too cause they heard Woody squawking and pecking.
I told them that Woody was in our fireplace ~ how cool is that! We started fighting over who was going to get Woody once he dropped down and landed in the fireplace. We decided to let Violet kill him, and then we would share in the feast.
Mommy was getting stressed and Daddy came in and said he was going to have to climb on the roof. That sounded like fun to me, but scary!
They were saying maybe Woody was building a nest for Mrs. Woody to have baby woodpeckers.
Well, it's a good thing winter isn't here - those birds would get pretty hot if we had a fire in the fireplace. That is when I decided that birds are just dumb!
We have all these nice trees in our yard, and they want to build a nest in our fireplace? All of a sudden things got quiet. It appears Woody was needed back in the studio.
Yawn, yawn, stretch, look for the sunlight ~ time to get back to my nap. Maybe I'll have some good birdy dreams!
