I'm all set. Let's go party! I got my black coat all shiny. I even have little toe tufts coming in on my back feet and I got longer big boy teeth!

I want to meet some more girls! Black kitties and tortie kitties are my favorites. I'm on the purrrrrrrrrrowl!

Got to go and call Cammie.

Talk to everyone tomorrow.

Breep to everyone.

I discovered something really neat this morning. Mommy left the kitchen sink faucet dripping and I jumped in and let it dribble all over me. I like it! I like it! Water went on top of my head and on my back. I then stuck one of my feet under the trickle of water and grooved on the wetness of it!

Mommy said Bentley and Jasmine Bibette both did this when they were young. Sampy used to lay in the bathroom sink when he was a kitten and used to jump up on the top of the sliding plexi-glass shower doors (in Lusby)and peek in while Mommy took a shower.

Us Maine Coon's and Maine Coon types love playing in water, but not being bathed.

I hope to take another sink shower soon . . .

Got to go now. Mommy has to go to work. Sampy will write tonight.

Breep to all my Catster friends and Buddie get well!

Since it was soooo hot last night, Mommy decided that all of us sleep on the living room fold-out couch. She told us she didn't want to crank the AC up any higher than the 76-78 mark to save money on the electric bill and being that we live in a two floor house, hot air rises. Downstairs gets all the cool air and plus there's a ceiling fan down there too. We had a great time, except Bail yucked up another hairball around 5:00 a.m.

I snuggled next to Mommy for part of the night and Bail and Sampy took turns sleeping on the foot of the bed. I'm surprised that those two didn't join Mommy and I.

Anyway, I got to go. I just thought I'd get mine in early. Mommy has to leave to go to work.

Breep to all my Catster friends!

I'm sprawled out on the floor under Mommy's office chair after trying to initiate a little wrestling session with the Bail. He told me to "back off" nicely and plopped down next to Sampy. I followed him and pinned him down and slurped his neck with my sandpaper tongue.

Bail wriggled himself free of my grip and left the room.

Then I keep wanting to crawl under the end table where all the cords are and Mommy's getting uptight about it. Yep, I'm right. She threw the pink ball out the door that Sampy just brought in and I chased it out. She shut the door. . . session over for tonight.

Got to go. Mommy wants me to behave in this room and I just don't feel like it. I want to explore under and behind things in there. I still want to chew stuff.

Breep to all my Catster friends!

Merl =^oo^= - we had some catnip after the salmon party!

My last baby tooth fell out yesterday, but nobody knows where it went. I think it came out when I was chomping down on some dry food.

Now, I'm officially a BIG BOY!!

My big boy teeth are still growing though. The top ones are still somewhat shorter than Bail's or Sampy's. I'm just glad I got them now. I feel really great that I can chew larger portions of food and it's easier to chew the dry stuff.

Sampy says I lay in funny positions. He would too if his hair felt like thick velvet and lambswool mixed. My tummy was hot and I let the fan blow on it.
So there!

Also, I'm a little shaky 'cause those stupid kids keep setting off firecrackers.
I hope they stop it.

I got to go now and if these kids keep it up, I going under the bed . . .

Breep to all my Catster friends and especially Buddie Pray for Me. I'm going to say some more prayers and send them his way. I hope he makes it through this health issue he's having.

Here, I'm talking flies! I caught two this morning and ate them both! I'm soooo glad. I was starting to go into "fly withdrawal" as there were none in the house for several weeks. Mommy took pictures of me reaching for the flies and them eating them. These will be under my website as: "Instructions on Fly Hunting". I hope all my Catster buddies who like to eat flies, moths, etc. enjoy these. These pictures are not graphic . . . they just show me spotting the fly, reaching and then my head down to grab it. You don't see the fly in my mouth or anything.

Other than that, Cammie came back late last night. She and I spoke through the front screen door. Mommy offered to let her in and she refused so she put the food out for her and she ate. She will not tell anybody where she was yesterday morning either; and again today she pulled them same thing. She's not here for breakfast two days in a row. Mommy thinks she's been in somebody's garage. Usually she's on the back stoop at home or at Daria's next door (under her porch or crawlspace). Mommy thinks Cammie is part feral too.

She's likes the outdoors and nightlife and there's a lot of critters out there and they never bother her. Mommy told me on the way home she saw a baby deer running on the bike path and cross over it when it saw her car approaching. I don't know what a deer is as I never saw one before.
I suppose Cammie does though.

Anyhooooo, I got to go. We gave out a few more rosettes today and will do so more throughout today. Maybe there will be a small friend hunting party again this afternoon.

Well, breep to all my Catster buddies and the new ones we all just made

Have a happy Sunday!

I met a few very pretty girls last night. So did Bail and Sampy. We had a blast! I'm ready for more and so is Sampy. Bail isn't yet as he's trying to "sleep it off". Cammie didn't come home this morning and I'm really worried about her. She's always here for breakfast and Mommy went to feed her and she wasn't there. She did this two days ago too and showed up for dinner only. I guess she partied more than the rest of us. I hope she's okay.

Sampy was showing me how to improve my leaping techniques. I really envy how he (even as an old man) can leap like a kitten. It must be the Maine Coon genes in him!

Well, I hope Cammie comes back and Bail recovers soon as Sampy and I want to PARTEEEEEE a little bit more. It won't be as long today 'cause Mommy has a date with Daddy Rob part of today.

Well, breep to all my Catster buddies and new ones we just made.

Sampy came up with a great idea and I'm all for it. I want to make friends with little guy kitties and little girl kitties around my age. We six month old's have a lot to say and to share with each other. I'm on the look for young Maine Coons and Norwegian Forest Cats. I also like the Rag Dolls and black kitties short or long hair. I also am going to look for multi-colored and red-haired girls. I like the red heads the best!

Yes, I'm going to join Sampy as soon as Bail does his entry.

Later and breep to all my Catster friends and new ones upcoming this weekend.

Mommy was a witness to the whole event and wished she had her camera to take a video of it.

You see, I was playing with my beloved feather toy (five or six feathers attached to a a rubber base and when it is thrown it bounces back up straight), when all of a sudden it landed in my water dish. It was floating in there and I couldn't quite get it out. Bail came along and scooped it up in his mouth and ran downstairs with it! He saved my feather toy! Bail, my hero!

I just thought I'd share my early morning adventure with my Catster buddies.

I also was starved for love several times in the early, early morning. I was all over Mommy purring and licking and walking over her head and shoulders. She pet me a few times, but wanted to go back to sleep.

You see, the a.m. is when my affectionate side comes all the way out! Purring and licking is out of control.

Well, I got to go now. Mommy has to get ready for work.

Breep to all my Catster friends

We had our 4th of July at home. Around 4:00 p.m, mother nature provided most of it with such a nasty thunderstorm with LOUD THUNDER, high winds and heavy rain. I wasn't scared and neither was Sampy. In fact, we slept through most of it. I understand Bail wasn't scared either. He told us later that he couldn't sleep nor could Mommy. Anyway, we lost electricity . . . blah, no computer, no CD's. Mommy got out her radio that ran on batteries and a flashlight and we made believe we were camping. We did a pretty good job of surviving without power for the whole night.

But before the night was over, that jerky neighbor kid that threw firecrackers the other day and scared Sampy, was at it again. All three of us ran and hid under the bed or chair, anywhere to get away. The thunderstorm didn't bother us compared to this. Also, the fireworks display at the University of Maryland did go on, and Mommy didn't want to go so she watched some of the fireworks from her bedroom window where there was a clearing between two trees across the street.

Anyway, the power came on 6:30 a.m. today. Mommy's glad it's back on and so are we so we can do our diaries!

Well, I'm a wordy little guy tonight and I have to give my brothers a chance.

Breep to all my Catster friends and I hope everyone had a nice 4th.

Merl =^..^=
