I'VE BEEN A GOOD BOY TODAY . . . SOMEWHAT

The stove is my goal post! I batted a tear-off strip from a tv dinner box under the stove. Mommy managed to get this one out with a broom. She said no more box tops as you put them all under the stove.

Other than that I was a pretty good boy oh except I also ruined my beautiful feather toy. Mommy went to get me another one and Petsmart no longer had them on sale. They were $1.00 last week, now they're back up to $5.00. OMG!!!!! :( Mommy doesn't like to pay $5.00 for a cat toy that can be pulled apart in no time. Maine Coons are very, very, very hard on feathers. We love them so and we rip them out of the toys all the time. Right now I just pulled out another feather. Poor toy!!

And Bail with his big boxing glove feet helped mess it up some more.

Nothing else much going on around here. I think I'll call it a night.

Breep to all my Catster friends and good night.

DIARY PICK OF THE DAY!!!! WOWIE ZOWIE!!!!

Wow, Catster thank you for picking me as "Diary Pick of the Day"! I guess afterall, I am a literary genius (a young one) and have that magical charm my older brothers have.

Mommy got the email at 6:30 this morning and she is so overjoyed (so I am, of course) that she was crying.

I know I can write good diary. I got a great kitty imagination. And oh, yes thank you Rocky Ann for the friends request and I said yes to your friendship. I've seen your site too and that's COOL that you're a hippie cat. Bail is the hippie cat of the household and I'm becoming one too. How about that. Bentley used to be the hippie cat before Bail and Mommy has his t-shirt with fringes on it and peace sign Mommy embroidered on it. He and Mommy won a Halloween contest at Petco about six years ago dressed as hippies. Mommy had on a Stevie Nicks wig and jeans that she made into a skirt (vintage 70's). They beat a boy and his dog dressed as Ninjas.

Anyhoo, that's a little trip into the past. Just thought I'd share this one with everyone and particularly with Rocky Ann. Maybe I'll IM her tonight.

Got to go now, Mommy has to get ready for work.

Kisses, breeps and purrs to Catster for picking me

GIMMEE FEATHERS AND NOTHING ELSE!!!

If you want me to keep playing with you Mommy, gimmee feathers! The ball on a stick is the most BORING toy ever. As soon as you brought out the feathers on a stick with a little bell on it, I am all play. All you have to do is hold that toy (you don't even have to shake it too much) and I will do the rest. I LOVE THIS TOY AS IT IS MY FAVORITE!!!

I love the way the soft feathers feel in my mouth and the sweet music the bell makes when I bat the toy.

I'M IN LOVE WITH MY TOY!!

I got to go now becaue I'm more into playing now. Mommy's playing Sheryl Crow's "My Favorite Mistake" and Bail and I started dancing to it . . .

Bye and breep to all my Catster friends

MY MONDAY

Today was pretty good for me . . . I slept most of the time while Mommy was at work. That's nothing new. Us cats are the greatest afternoon sleepers. All of us did our periodic "run across Mommy's bed before the sun comes up" trips this morning. Poor Mommy. She can't sleep straight through any night because of this. Sampy is the great one for giving her sandpaper kisses on top of her head or on her neck. I guess he thinks he's grooming us when he does this.

When Mommy came home, she made some shake and bake pork chops and Bail was going crazy for some. She didn't give him any either. I didn't bother her for any as the smell didn't entice me.

Other than that it was a relatively non-eventful day except the windows are open tonight . . . maybe I'll see some moths!!

Got to go now and look for them . . . .

Breep to all my Catster friends,

Merl =^. .^=

 

I HELPED MOMMY WITH THE JUNK MAIL

August 20th 2006 7:21 am

Mommy was going through the junk mail this morning and tossing it in a big paper bag for the recycling man who comes on Monday. I helped her too by jumping in the bag and stomping down on it to compact it so she could put more in there. Then I started the shreading process with my big boy teeth on a piece of mail that had Mommy's name and address on it. She let me chew on it, but told me it needed further shreading and she would get the shreader for that later.

I do try to help though and Mommy thanked me.

Right now I am going to call it a day and if anything more exciting takes place, I will write an addendum.

Breep to all my Catster friends

JONAH CAME TO VISIT AND THE WILD MOUNTAIN THYME

August 19th 2006 11:02 am

THERE'S A TITLE FOR YOU:

First, of all Mommy's friend Mary came over with her grandson Jonah (7 year old human boy) whom I met for the first time. He scared me because I never saw a human smaller than Mommy, Daddy Rob or Mary. I thought all humans came in big sizes! And he was trying to catch me and was waving the Cat Dancer to entice me to play. I didn't want to . . . I was too scared . . . I let Bail do it . . .

I took refuge under Mommy's brass bed and stayed there for quite some time.
Mommy bent down to get me from under there and brought me downstairs so Mary could touch me to see if my coat was still wavy and thick. After that, Jonah was trying to play with me and I ran upstairs and hid again.

After they left, I came out to some Celtic music playing. Mommy brought out the Cat Dancer again and I danced to "Wild Mountain Thyme". This was a slow workout today. It was fun.

That's all for now Catsters and Buddie I hope you're improving.

Merl =^. .^= BREEPITY BREEP TO ALL!!!

 

WELL, IT DIDN'T HAPPEN TODAY AND OUR NEW CAT DANCER

Well, I didn't get the Diary Pick of the Day. I'm not crying about it though. There will be other days. Whenever it happens, it happens. I don't know if there is a panel of judges who select the Diary Picks of the Day or if a computer does it hummmmmmm . . . that's one to ponder . . . .

Also, as Bail and Sampy already mentioned our new Cat Dancer is really cool. I like this one better than the ball on a stick or the streamers on a stick. This one is feathers and a bell on a stick. I played and danced and long after Bail got tired out I was still swinging at it . . . and I'm back at it right now.

Mommy is going to put me on pause so she can get us some catnip . . . see you all soon . . .

I'm baaaaack! We had our catnip and that was fun! I'm swinging at the Cat Dancer for a little bit more. I already ripped out a couple of feathers too. Boy, I'm destructive . . . I guess I better call it a night.

Breep to all my Catster friends and Buddie, get well.

Merl ~~~~^OO^~~~~ (catnip kitty)

 

DIARY PICK OF THE DAY????? I'M WONDERING . . . .

August 17th 2006 5:59 pm

Will I, won't I, will I, won't I, will I, won't I, etc. be the Diary Pick of the Day tomorrow? Only time will tell. We'll see if I have the magical charm and if I am a literary genius like Sampy and Bail claim to have and to be. Bail got it last Friday and Sampy the week before . . . . mmmmm . . . . is there some type of method here? According to my calculations mmmm . . . .

TIME WILL TELL and if I don't get it tomorrow, I'll deal with it. Yes, I will because I'm Mr. Pawpular No. 5. I may be No. 5 and I think that's good too because there are over 9 K kitties who have diaries!

WOWIE ZOWIE!!!! I'm very proud of myself for that!

Also, as I lay down to take my little nap, I will say a prayer for dear Buddie to get better.

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

THE LITTLE GUY IS TIRED BECAUSE . . . .

I was a wildcat starting early this morning . . . up in Mommy's face purrrring and breeping and running around from room to room and up and down the stairs and bugging Bail and Sampy and getting under Mommy's feet and following her and trying to jump into the fridge every time Mommy opened the door and chasing moths in the open window and knocking pictures off dresser drawer, and whew!!!!! I'm pooped just listing all this stuff.

It was a busy day for me, I'll say and I'll chill for now and I promise you I will get in Mommy's face around 4:00 a.m. Sampy is my partner in this naughty boy plan.

I got to go now as I want Mommy to sleep now so she'll be more awake for when Sampy and I arrive . . . .

Breep to all and good night,

Merl ~~~~^ . .^~~~~

 

HEY, IT'S THE MERL AND I REALLY LIKE MY NEW FRIEND

August 15th 2006 6:49 pm
[ Leave A Comment ]

Hey everybody! I really like this new girl I met not too long ago and her name is Mystery. We've been corresponding a few times. She's sooo pretty or do you call it purrrrrrrrty. I can really emphasize on the purrrrrrr 'cause I've got the loudest motor in town.

I'll have sweet dreams tonight about her tonight for sure.

As a change of subject, Mommy gave me a long, long tear-off strip from some computer paper she had and told me to play with it. I did. I dragged the thing all the way down the stairs and into the kitchen where Bail and I had a great time trying to shove it under the crack of the cellar door. The cellar door was the goal post this time. Mommy said, "I hope you guys don't cram it under the stove where everything else is!"

And then Mommy turned off all the lights in the kitchen except for the night light and made shadows upon the cellar door for Bail. He's really funny! He jumped up the side of the door trying to grab the shadows of Mommy's hands. He's called a "shadow boxer". Mommy wants to take a video of this too.


Well, I'm getting a little wordy today. I'll give it a rest and say goodnight and of course breep to all my Catster buddies!!!
