HI EVERYONE . . . I'M GOOD TODAY (SO FAR)

August 3rd 2006 5:40 pm
[ Leave A Comment ]

I was a good boy today. I want to make Mommy proud of me today!
I didn't jump on the stove or knock over anything or break anything.

I saw an ant crawling up the wall and I tried to catch it and it got away. They're not as fun as flies. They just crawl . . . that's boring!

I had a little wrestling match with Bail this morning in the cat tree downstairs. That was fun. He was on the top layer and I was on the next one down. We kept wrestling with our front legs only and our mouths. It was just a short fun one.

Not much else going on now. I hope it cools off like Sampy said.

Well, I must go. We're going to keep our entries short tonight as Mommy is very, very tired and wants to get to bed earlier than 11:00 p.m.

Breep to all my Catster friends

HEY, IT'S MERL THE DESTROYER! ~~~~^. .^~~~~

We had another salmon party and I managed to eat all the pieces Mommy gave me without Bail stealing them.

I came upstairs with Mommy and played with the streamers on a stick and all of a sudden . . . I got bored with it . . . I don't like that toy no more . . .

I want to destroy something . . . I eyed the tall chest of drawyers that has the jack-in-a-box kitten on it, the doll on the rocking chair and two frames with mine and Bail's pictures in them. There is also a glass thingy with dried flowers imbeded in it. All of this stuff is on top of a white table scarf. I think I'll leap up and pull at the scarf and see what comes down . . .

And I did and down came everything but the doll and the jack-in-the-box. The picture frame that had my picture in it broke in half when it landed on the floor. Mommy yelled at me and told me to get out of the room now and she shut the door.

I was bad again and I'm going to hide for a while because Mommy yelled at me.

MOMMY'S NOTE: Merl has been a problem child lately. Today this, and the other day with turning on the stove. I don't know how to control his mischief. Bail or Sampy never was this naughty. They were chewers. Merl is a destroyer. He flips over chairs and tosses pillows off the couch. He bops pictures hanging on the wall and gets them hanging crooked. He runs in front of me sometimes and almost trips me up. I hope he grows out of this "bad cats" stage (in fact he belongs to this group). I think I'll have him write something in that group, perhaps tonight.

Well, I'll sign off for Merl.

Breep to everybody in Catsterland

I BEHAVED BETTER TODAY

Today, I didn't jump on the stove at all. I think Mommy's yelling at me worked. I had no desire to jump up there because of yesterday's close call.

I did try something in the computer room. I tried to jump at the dreamcatcher and missed. I also played with my steamers on a stick when Mommy first came home. It was a rather non-eventful day.

There is no email action today, just a bunch of spam

I also woke Mommy up at 5:00 a.m. today! I make the best alarm clock in the world!!!

Now I'm sleepy and I understand Sampy is out like a light on the blue blankie in the computer room. I don't know where Bail is.

And, how could I forget, we had another salmon party! We have those about two times a week. I'm not complaining. I can eat salmon all day long!

Got to go now and try to hunt down Bail and wake up Sampy. Cammie already had her turn.

Merl ~~~~^. .^~~~~ Breep to all my Catster friends!

 

I TURNED ON A BURNER ON THE STOVE

July 31st 2006 7:53 pm
[ Leave A Comment ]

I was a bad boy today, accidently. I jumped up on the stove, my back foot caught on one of the knobs that turn on the burners and the burner made a "click, click, click" noise as I stood over top of that burner. Luckily the burners are the type that burst into full flame only when they are pushed harder. Mommy wasn't a happy camper about my accident and I know I got her very, very worried. That burner could have hurt me if it burst into flame!

Mommy picked me up really fast while the burner was still "clicking" and she turned it off. She told me never to do that again. She does have a problem with me going up there. I just keep jumping on the stove when I see her standing near it. I think she's got food up there for me and it smells so good that I have to check it out.

MOMMY'S NOTE: Merl has really gotten me nervous with his jumping onto the stove and today was the ultimate scare. I was glad I was there to pull him down and to shut off the burner. I pray to God that he doesn't do that while I'm asleep or not around.

BACK TO MERL: Mommy, I'll be more careful. I'm sorry.
It was an accident that I slipped. I know I shouldn't jump on the stove in the first place.

I got to go now and I really have to tone down my mishief making.

Breep to allmy Catster friends,

I AM OVERJOYED BEYOND BELIEF!!!

I am, I am. I got 12 emails yesterday early afternoon inviting me to 12 different groups! I joined all of them. I really like the Maine Coon one, that's my favorite. The others are cool too. I can't wait until Halloween too as that one is for Halloween lovers. My Mommy likes scary movies not only on Halloween, but other times too. She does have a pretty large collection going all the way back to the 1960's black and whites like "Black Sunday" and "Nightmare Castle". Mommy's a Barbara Steele fan too. She likes those gothic/romance type scary ones; not the slasher type. She likes all the vampire ones too.

Anyway, this morning Mommy and I got together writing thank you's to the 12 groups I was invited to. My brothers and sister are wondering why I am so pawpular. They want a piece of the action too. I told them both to start hitting the Forums like I did and do it more often.

I got to take my little nappy now to get my beauty rest and Mommy has to fix her some lunch. I can hear her stomach rumbling.

Breep to all my Catster friends and the new ones in the groups I just joined.

MY NAIL TRIM TODAY AND LAST NIGHT'S PARTY

July 29th 2006 7:27 am

Mommy trimmed my nails and I let her do the first couple of nails on the left foot before I raised a fuss. I wiggled and rabbit kicked, but she managed to get both front feet done. When she tried one nail on the left rear foot, I let out a loud screech. Hey, that one hurt! Mommy kissed it to make it better and said I was alright. She accidently cut it shorter (it didn't bleed or nothing like that as she didn't get into the pink veined portion of my nail, thank God).
She got the rest of my rear nails and said I was done.

Bail has vanished. Like Sampy said, he knows he's next for the nail trim. I wish him luck. It's no walk in the park!

As to last night, we met a few cats and kittens. A little of it was continued this morning too. Bail has entered his "How I got my Name" so far in the Forum. I guess the rest of us will do that today or tomorrow.

I got to go now and take my nappy as I was playing vigorously with my streamers on a stick a little bit ago.

Breep to all my Catster friends!

Yeah, I've been bad again.

1. Jumped into the fridge five times this morning when Mommy opened it;

2. I'm stashing a lot of toys under the stove;

3. I keep jumping up on top of the stove (not when something's cooking though). Mommy keeps saying, "no" and I won't listen to her;

Other than that, I've been good and I'm ready to party so let the show begin!!!

Breep to all my Catster friends from

MOMMY THE BEE SLAYER

July 27th 2006 5:28 am
[ Leave A Comment ]

When Mommy opened the back door to get Cammie's dish, a bee flew in. It was buzzzzzing around and around in the kitchen mostly up at the ceiling light. (I didn't see this part . . . Mommy told me this part).

She opened the back screen door and kept it open so the bee would fly out. No way! It kept flying around the ceiling light. While the door was open, Bail casually strolled outside and Mommy went after him. She was kind of aggravated because Bail is strictly an indoors kitty. Anyway, she brought him back in and closed the door.

Meanwhile, Mommy got the broom and swept the bee toward the blinds on the window near the Big Chair. She whacked the blinds where the bee was. I was ready to get it, and she told me to back off as it would sting me. She whacked again and the bee got stuck in the broom bristles. She put the broom into the kitchen sink and ran water on it, dislodging the stunned bee. The water swirled the bee toward the drain and then she turned on that loud grinding thingy. "Take that you ^&&%$%$$ bee! I don't want you messing with my cats!" Mommy said to it.

Job well done, Mommy. You're my hero again!!!

Got to go now, everybody.

Merl

P.S. - I tried out my "clumping" litter. It's really cool. Feels like beach sand!

~~~~^. . ^~~~~

 

NOW THAT I AM SIX MONTHS OLD . . . . .

Mommy told me since I am six months old now she's going to switch to the "clumping" kind of litter. Whatever!!!

I have no idea what "clumping litter" is and I have to wait until tonight to find out.

She told me it'll feel like I'm walking on a beach with soft, soft sand. Not the pebbley type we have now.

Now, I'm kind of excited! I'll keep everybody posted on my reactions to this stuff.

Bye for now . . . I'll write an addendum (big word for a little guy) to my entry tonight or just wait until tomorrow.

Breep to everybody in the Catster world!

HEY, IT'S THE LITTLE GUY HERE!

Yep. I'm still the little guy and Mommy and I are wondering when I get older, should we change my diary title to "Big Guys Have All The Fun".

We don't know yet.

Anyway, I was bad this morning. I woke Mommy up at 5:00 a.m. instead of 5:45 and rubbed on her lamp shade and knocked over the little ceramic kitty hanging from it's rim. BAD, BAD, BAD. Mommy had to put me out of the room so she could get that extra 45 mins sleep.

After I ate, I gave Bail the biggest workout ever. We wrestled and I chased him throughout the house and up the stairs. He jumped up into his cat tree and called it quits! I can even tire out a 1-year-old! Bail is about 1/2 year older than me.

Well, I must go now as Mommy has to head to work.

Breep to all my Catster buddies.
