Again, another year has gone by and it's Mommy's birthday on December 18th. I'm putting the story up early as she'll be coming home late on Monday and Tuesday evenings and not in the mood to turn on the big computer. So, keeping in tradition, here's a story I wrote for her when I was a young boycat:

A CATMAS PAWTY by Merlin, the Panther Boy

On Catmas eve, I went to bed early. Later that night, I woke up at the stroke of midnight from a deep sleep by the sounds of loud piano music, drums, and a trumpet. Catmas carols were being sung in our native tongue: meows, howls, breeps and chirps.

I got up from Mommy's bed where I always sleep every night. I walked slowly down the hall toward the computer room. The door was open slightly. I found this to be very odd as Mommy always had this door closed to keep my brothers and I out. I peeked through the crack of the door and saw, to my amazement, all of Mommy's cat figurines had come to life, jumped out of the glass display cabinet and were pawtying! Portia-Lynne was playing the piano while her husband Sir Ramic blew on the horn! Their three little ones, China, Cyrstal and Blenko sat atop the piano and sang in their beautiful high-pitched breeps. Some of the kitty figurines of unknown names were dancing as Portia-Lynne and her husband played Jingle Bell Rock. Others stood and talked while they drank varying Catnip type drinks: Catip Sunrises, Catnip Ladies, Catnip Cape Codders (Catnip with cranberry juice).

A Catmas tree, stood tall behind the piano and perched in the top of the tree was the Cheshire Cat grinning and swishing his large plumed tail!

I wanted to pawty with them and the thought of meeting a girl went through my head. I decided it would not be a good idea to enter the room as there was magical spell in here on this Catmas Eve. All the kitties were not real and if I joined in, I would become like them after the party ended and would have to spend the whole year on the shelf with them as a figurine.

I value my life too much. I love my Mommy and brothers and sister and I'd miss them and they'd miss me. Because of this, I decided to watch the pawtiers from a distance. They were all too drunk on catnip drinks and they never noticed me watching them.

Eventually, I returned to my bed and didn't wake up until the Catmas morning sunlight poked through the bedroom window blinds.

The dream was still very alive in my head and out of curiosity, I went into the computer room to find the following: The glass door to the display case was slightly ajar and one of the windows was open a crack, and on the floor was the figurine of Portia-Lynne wearing our Santa hat. But the strangest thing of all was the look on her face. She was smiling up at me . . . . .

The End

So, there you go. I was young and little almost eight years ago when I wrote this story. Every year, I'm bigger than the year before. I'm the biggest cat in the furmily. I was 17.7 on my last vet check when Landy pierced my left ear. My ear is fine a year later and fur has grown back on it. As to my weight, Mommy thinks I'm at 18 lbs. It hurts her back to pick me up and she doesn't do it often because of that. Also,Sampy's had a bunch of health issues and a bad tooth. Also, our sassy sis, Joss, is growing up to be a big girl. She's almost 12 lbs!

In March of 2006, (when I joined Catster) I was a little guy of 2 1/2 months old. Happy Birthday Mommy. This is my present to you!

I know, I know. I'm shy and afraid of anyone who visits Mommy. Because of my shyness, I missed out on some treats; likewise for Joss. Mommy put said treats on a plate and slid them under the big red couch for me and Joss. Unfortunately, Landy went under there and ate them before we could.

Oh well, Mommy gave me some chicken the next morning when she was fixing her lunch to take to work. Muwahhhhhh!!!

Lastly, I concat Ms. Pawpular in our household. I can't believe that she's getting so many Diary Picks. If Catster still had that "Pawpular" column like they did in 2006 when we first joined, she'd be up there for sure. I used to be #5 on that column's top 5 listing.

Anyway, enjoy my our Catmas pages.

Yesterday Bail and I were in the diary spotlight. Talk about excitement! The Diary Gal likes us for sure. Thanks so much for honoring my bro and me!

I also extend my belated thanks for concats & gifts:

1. ANGEL BUDDIE & Family - pawsome pawmail;
2. SMILEY CASANOVA - pawsome pawmail & cool comment;
3. ELSA - yummy (drool) drumstick.

Also, another weekend is upon us. Two more weeks of Farmer's Market are left. Tomorrow and next Sunday. After that, we have to wait until April. That doesn't mean no more salmon; Mommy cooks it pretty good in her convection oven. In fact, I like Mommy's recipe better.

Lastly, Joss is getting bigger everyday. Pretty soon, she'll weigh as much as me. She's not fat though. She's got those Maine Coon bones and big feet.

We'll that's about it. I'm running out of things to write about.

I wish everycat a safe and happy Halloween. As you can see, I'm dressed up as Merlin again this Halloween. That's who I'm named after so it's appropriate I dress like him.

Also, Sampy is doing much better this whole week on his reduced thyroid and heart meds. The larger doses made him too sleepy and he was also neglecting his grooming. Mommy had to help him by using kitty wipes and frequent combings. Now, he's able to do it himself and his floofy coat is looking much better.

Other than that I extend belated concats to Joss for her back-to-back diary picks. Woo-Hoo, girl.

Lastly, she's been hanging around with me a lot and chasing me too. I guess she's getting tired of picking on Landy all the time.

Wowza! This is the first diary pick that I had in some time! Thanks, Diary Gal for honoring me today! I think Bail got Diary Pick last weekend.

I also thank my pawsome friends for their concats as follows:

1. BUDDIE & Family - pawsome pawmail;
2. GLEEK - cool comment;
3. SMILEY CASANOVA - pawsome pawmail & cool comment;
4. IVY & Family - purrty blue rosette;
5. SEVERIAN - cool comment;
6. NAPOLEON - cool comment.

Also, today is Farmer's Market day and that means a salmon pawty if the salmon man is there. I hope he is 'cause he makes he most pawsome salmon. Of course, Mommy does too, but she has to find some good looking pieces of salmon that's not too expensive. Lately, she been too busy to go looking for it.

Anyway, fall is surely here! A lot of leaves are falling, even those from the redbud tree. Those leaves are heart shaped and turning gold and brown. Next Saturday, Mommy has an art class at the old Parrish house which is walking distance from our house. She will be taught how to make an autumn leaf mosaic that will enclose the leaves between glass and wood. She plans on using redbud and oak tree leaves for this project. She's really excited!! Pics will be posted next Saturday evening on FB and my page.

Well, that's it for now. Have a pawsome weekend my friends!

Ahoy to all my pirate buddies! I noticed that our family has gotten a bunch of Jolly Roger flags. Thank you so much! So cool!

We're going to try to hand out a few if we can get the slow computer to work or maybe the IPad will work faster. This diary is being done on the iPad right now. Mommy can type pretty fast as she's used to typing a lot of legal documents and letters at work.

Anyway, we've got fall weather especially at night. During the day it's been in the lower and mid 70's. Tomorrow, will be the hot one of this week; around 80 degrees.

Lastly, Joss kept rubbing against me this morning so I gave her a couple of licks on the top of her head. She didn't expect that from me and was quite surprised. She started to swing at me so I bopped her softly on the face! She then walked away to avoid any further bopping.

Oh, one more thing, hopefully Mommy can get our fall decor on our pages. Summer will be ending this weekend.

Good night & purrs & Breeps,

I just noticed that Joss put an entry in MY diary on Aug 11th! Silly girl! Since I haven't written anything in some time, I just noticed this early this morning. Mommy says she'll fix it soon.

Also, Joss keeps trying to be my buddy by giving me headbutts and body rubs. I always swing at her and utter a "squeak". Then I give her a good bop and, of course, she returns the bop. Kid kitties!!

Anyway, our weekend turned out nicely except for the heat and humidity. We have the AC on now. Fortunately, the rest of the week will be cooler.

Well, I must ing off now, everycat. I hoe your holiday weekend was a great one !

Yesterday was Black Cat Appreciation Day. They have their page on FB! Mommy submitted various pics of Joss and me and guess what? The latest pic of me laying in the bedestal got a lot of comments! Joss' pic of her laying on Mommy's bed got shared by the Black Cat Appreciation Page. Anyway, that pic of me has been added to my page. Unfortunately, Mommy can't get her IPad to move this pic to the front. She'll have to do this on her computer later today.

Lastly, we got rain this morning, not a whole lot, though. I hope it clears up and gets pretty like it was all week and yesterday.

Got to go now,

August 17th will be Black Cat Appreciation Day! Both Joss and I are the black kitties in the family and both of us are very affectionate to Mommy. Even though I'm not a lap cat, I am an early morning on the bed type of cat who showers Mommy with little licks with the tip of my tongue to her chin and nose. Joss likes to sit on Mommy's lap sometimes when she's putting on her makeup.

Anyway, Mommy plans on making a special background for Joss and I for this special day. She hopes to get it done today.

Lastly, I wasn't in the mood for salmon today as I ate a whole bunch of dry food. There simply wasn't enough room left in my tummy!

Well, I must go and sit in the window and enjoy the sun while it's still out.

Well, we'll, well, Landy is in the Diary Spotlight today! And it's also true that there'll be a salmon pawty in his honor. I can't wait for that!!

Also, we have windows open today as we've had a 10 degree drop in temps so far. It certainly is a relief,

Lastly, as you heard, Mommy got us a new cat tree Friday. I also tried it out.

Well, I must be on my way. Have a pawsome weekend my friends!
