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.

THE PINK BRUSH, ANOTHER SALMON PARTY, AND DECLAWING

July 24th 2006 5:03 pm

This morning Mommy found an old brush that was Bentley's and she brushed my hair with it. It felt soooooo good. It has massaging teeth on it (the tips have caps on them) so it doesn't hurt. It feels good! It got me really purring and asking for more. Mommy tried it on Sampy and he liked it too. She didn't try it on Bail because he took off before she could get hold of him.

Tonight, we had another salmon party. I just love the stuff!

As to declawing, I'm strictly against it. I hate my claws trimmed and it has to be done. It beats having them removed.

Well, I got to go now. Bail and Sampy still haven't done their entries yet. We all let Cammie, the star, go first (she with all the treats and an invite to a new group). I'm very happy for her!

Way to go Cam!!!

Anyhooo, breep to all my Catster friends and the new little kittens that we just met: Hot Rod and Kitty Mari Gold

COD AND SOLE

Cod and sole, I fell in love with Mommy
Cod and sole, because she fed me this
gladly
With every taste I took, it was M A G I C
cod and sole! (Sorry we got stumped for the rest)

Well, Mommy, Bail and I got our heads together on this one. She fed me some cod and sole Fancy Feast this morning and it's mighty tastey! While she was feeding me this she started singing . . . cod and sole, etc.

MOMMY'S NOTE: This goes to the tune of an oldie by a duo named Jan and Dean who pre-dated the Beachboys. I heard from my mother that it was older than that, not sure how old though. Perhaps a little internet research will be done right now. Pause . . . .

Mommy's Mom was right. This song was written by a Frank Loesser (whatever!). She found a version of it on the net done by a Hoagy Carmichael playing the piano. Mommy heard of Hoagy Carmichael, but not this Frank guy. Frankly, (no pun here) I never heard of any of them.

So there's a trip into the past via me the Merl (Bail let me have a try at the parody thing) and I'm so grateful to him for it. It's fun!

Got to go now. Bail's trying to sleep off his partying adventure at Monkey's and Sampy's outside cruising the backyard and Cammie (believe it or not) is indoors under the chair.

Breep to all my Catster friends and have a HAPPY SUNDAY!

MY SILLY SATURDAY

July 22nd 2006 7:41 am

I had a silly day today as follows:

1. Mommy put that stupid collar around my neck and tickled my tummy;

2. She got all these "tear off" strips from computer paper and threw them at me and said, "here's something to play with";

3. She actually took me outside on the porch (but held me and didn't let me loose. She held me up to Cammie so she could give me a nose kiss;

4. She left that collar around my neck and took more pictures of me and she says she's going to put them on the website this weekend;

5. When Mommy took a shower, she left the bathroom door open so I went in and jumped between the shower curtain and it's liner. Mommy parted the liner and said "peekaboo" to me. I looked up at her and wondered where all that water was coming from;

6. I decided not to jump in;

7. Bail and I had a thorough wrestling match.

I guess that's my silly Saturday. There will probably be more silly things later on . . . .

Until then, breep to my Catster friends

p.s. The party was short yesterday. We did meet about 5 nice kittens, mostly girls around my age! I'm really thrilled!

 

IT'S FLYDAY!!!!

I know you're all sick of me and my flies. I just have to share this one because Bail told it last time.

Mommy went outside to give Cammie some fresh food and in buzzes another fly! This one was an easy catch . . . it only took a few minutes and he was mine, all mine! I bopped him off the kitchen door, he fell to the floor and I crunched him up. Mighty tastey, I'll say. After that I ate some cat food. Mr. Fly was an appetiser.

Lastly, we're having another party! We're going to give out rosettes and try to find some more new friends. We all should be ready in an hour.

Sampy and Bail want to say something too, but Mommy has to have her dinner. She already fed us.

Breep to all my Catster friends and the new ones to come.

THANKS A LOT BAIL!!

Bail! How could you! I wanted to tell everybody about my fly capture. It was my fly, I caught it and I ate it! So what if I knocked over your "oasis". That drinking fountain was originally mine anyway. When I was a baby Mommy bought it for me when I had to stay in the bedroom by myself for a little bit.

Thanks, Pal!!! I'm not going to stay ticked though. There will be more flies and all I ask is if I catch it, I want to talk about it first not last. That's all. I told Bail this and he agreed.

He told me he did it because I already did my entry and figured he'd share it with everybody.

Anyhow, that's how it goes. I'll wait for another fly and I know I will eventualy catch it.

Right now, Mommy has to eat her dinner. She's running a little late.

Later and breep to all my Catster friends.

I WRESTLED WITH GRAMPY SAMPY

July 19th 2006 3:53 am

This morning Sampy and I had a little wrestling match on the upstairs landing. I love playing with "Grampy". I call him that because he's the old man of the house. He's pretty good with me too . . . he doesn't play too rough with me and gives me little nips on my toes and slurps my tummy. He's fun to play with. He's not into the chasing thing because he gets pooped too fast. I save the chasing part for Bail.

Cammie was in last night for a bit, and the fly was back. I tried sooooo hard to catch the stupid thing and still couldn't get it. Like Bail said, he thinks the fly is genetically engineered. I jumped up high and cupped my front paws trying to catch it and that wouldn't work either. I almost landed on top of Cammie and she told me to "back away punk kid!" I told her, "I NEED TO CATCH THAT FLY, SORRY."

Anyway, I know it'll be back around dinner time just as yesterday and the day before.

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

BREEP TO ALL MY CATSTER FRIENDS AND SAMPY TELLS ME CALVIN, HIS FELLOW KNEADER, HAS A BIRTHDAY TODAY. HAPPY BIRTHDAY CALVIN.

I WOKE MOMMIE UP BEFORE THE BIRDS

July 18th 2006 3:36 am
[ Leave A Comment ]

Yes, I did and I'm proud of myself for being the best alarm clock ever! I jumped up next to Mommy's pillow and revved up the motor PURRRRRRRRRRR, PURRRRRRRRR, PURRRRRRR. I walked back and forth over her shoulders and licked her hands, whisker tickled her hands and arms and then I crawled under the covers and went to work on her feet and legs. (I didn't lick them though - just rubbed and whisker-tickled them). There was no way she could sleep through this wake-up call!

I SUCCEEDED! Mommy got up and is still up now.

I have a feeling today is going to be a good day for me and I look forward to being fed (that's the main reason why I woke her up early!).

Got to go now. Mommy has to get ready for work, and my brothers will most likely write their stuff tonight.

Breep to all my Catster friends and especially Buddie, Chandler and Zsa Zsa. Hang in there fellow Catsters!

THERE WAS A BIG FLY IN THE HOUSE TONIGHT

July 17th 2006 5:55 pm
[ Leave A Comment ]

I tried my best to catch this fly and it was too fast even for me. IT GOT AWAY! Me, Bail and Sampy were trying to catch the thing, but couldn't. Cammie was inside for a little bit and she thought all of us were a joke. She hissed once at Bail because he got too close to her when he was after the fly.

I know I'll get it sooner or later, I always do because I'm the greatest fly hunter in the house! I caught them all and ate them!

Other than that, Sampy and Cammie are out for now. I know Sampy will come back in soon. Cammie will disappear until the morning.

Well, Bail is breathing down my back to hurry up. He says he has something fully to tell.

Breep to all my Catster friends and good night.
