Mommy told me that I was one of the Diary Picks today. I asked, "Who me??" She showed me my page and the lovely red rosette that I got from my friend "TATE BIEBER". Is he related to Justin Bieber??

Anyway, thank you Diary Gal for picking me this time around. January is a lucky month for Bail and I. It looks like we're taking turns!

I also thank, of course, TATE BIEBER for lovely red rosette; BUDDIE & Family for their pawsome pawmail; and THE BUSH FURS for their cool comment.

I have to cut this one short as Mommy has to put her makeup on and eat breakfast.

Bye for now.

Purrs & Breeps,

Happy birthday to me,
Happy birthday to me,
I had some nip
and I'm happeeeeee!

Today is my 6th birthday! OMC! I'm getting older! Also, I'm not the baby in the house since Landy came along in 2008. He'll be five in September!

Again, I thank my pawsome friends INKY and WESLEY & their families for the lovely gifts yesterday!

Today, I thank: DA Tabbies O Trout Towne for their cool comment, MILO & Family for the yummy cupcake, and ELSA and THE BUSH FURS for their yummy shrimps.

Today is Friday the 13th! It's just a number to me anyway!

Now, tomorrow is a better number; Saturday the 14th! That's my 6th birthday! I can't believe how old I'm getting!!

I got two early birthday gifts from my pawsome friends:

1. INKY & Family - cool snowman (of course, he's cool!);
2. WESLEY & Family - pawsome fur football.

Thank you so much guys! At first, I thought I was DDP today and HQ forgot to send us an email for it.

Lastly, I purraying for Sampy's itchie issues to go away. Of course, I don't like the idea of him camping out with Mommy in the computer room all night long. The other day when they did that, Landy and I were tugging at and meowing at the door. I'm the best door tugger/shaker ever!

Anyway, I'll be on my way. Have a pawsome weekend, everycat.

I'm speaking again about another DDP for me! Today, I'm up there sans Bail! I got the Diary Limelight all to myself along with some other pawsome Catsters! Thank you Diary Gal for honoring me two days in a row!

I also thank the following pawsome friends for their concats and gifts:

1. THE BUSH FURS - purrty blue rosette (this was for
yesterday'DDP which arrived today);

2. BUDDIE & Family - paswome pawmail;
3. INKY - cool comment;
4. YOLO - cool comment;
5. GUIDO, the Italian Kitty - cool comment;
6. MILO - cool comment;
7. TROOPER & Family - purrty heart;
8. RIVER - cool comment;
9. MR. D - cool comment.

Also, Mommy went shopping yesterday (food and clothes) and on her way back, she stopped at a place called "Plato's Diner". She ordered their pawsomely yummy turkey dinner and brought some home with her. So, this afternoon, there will be a turkey pawty! I can't wait! I'm drooling thinking about it! Of course, after that we're going to watch some movies on the downstairs TV. I love it when she watches them there so I can snuggle with her on the living room couch.

Lastly, we had an unseasonsably warm day yesterday. Mommy's neighbor was outside in his shorts and t-shirt while he washed his car. His friend also was there in his t-shirt and shorts. Various people walked and jogged the bike path and children ran by, all dressed in short-sleeved tops, t-shirts or light weight jackets.

When Mommy went out, she wore a summer blouse and a light weight hoodie on top. Of course, she took a heavier coat and hat with her as the temps were expected to drop later on in the evening.

So this is a very warm January so far! Mommy jokingly says she and her brother scared the snow and cold weather away by her buying new snow boots and him buying a season pass to his favorite ski resort.

Anyway, that's about it from me. I hope everycat is having a great weekend. I know I am!

I just found out that Bail and I are in the Diary Limelight today! How cool is that! Thank you Diary Gal for honoring both of us today!

I also, thank my pawsome friends for their concats and gifts:

1. BUDDIE & Family - pawsome pawmail;
2. EMILY - cool brussel ball;
3. GLEEK - cool comment;
4. MILO - cool comment;
5. MILO & MALLIE - cool football.

Also, I helped Mommy make the bed this morning. I just love tunneling under the sheets and blankies, and when she tickles my tummy, I get so turned on! My motor goes up to full throttle!

Also, Sampy and I had a nip pawty Thursday night. That Whisker City stuff is "kick tail" nip! I hope mommy throws another catnip pawty tonight!

Lastly, we're going to have a another warm day today, but not as warm as yesterday. Still, it's not warm enough to open the windows.

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

First of all, I extend my happy diary pick day to Bail! He's the first one in our furmily to land a DDP for 2012! Way to go!

Also, my nails are nice and trim (even though I hated the process). They don't bother me nor Mommy when I scratch on her legs right now because my claws don't get caught in her jeans or jammies!

I know she hated that and kept telling me to "stop it, Merl, you're shredding my clothes."

Anyway, I'm going to run now. It's cold and I'm going back to my vent or maybe try out the new blankie.

Purrs & Breeps & wishes for a pawsome 20121!

Mommy washed something called a "scarf hat". It was machine washable and had to be laid flat to dry. She laid it flat on a towel on the dining room table and guess who had to sit on it.

Mommy asked, "what is it with cats with wet human clothes?" She went on, "Our angel Isis used to love to lay on my wet sweaters. Does it feel good or what???"

I looked at her funny and got up from the wet scarf hat and jumped upon the little table where she sat paying bills. I stomped on some of the bill stubs and my paw stuck in something wet and soggy. I did the kitty paw shake dance on the table. Mommy found this tan-colored soggy stuff and at first she thought it was a juicy hairball. Upon further examination, she noted it was a piece of fallen cinnamon chex-type of cereal she had eaten 1/2 hour ago.

I suppose I was naughty this morning. Oh well! I just like following Mommy all around and checking out whatever she does in the dining room or kitchen, mostly.

Anyway, I hope everycat had a lovely Catmas! I look forward to the new year as I had my 6th birthday on January 14th!

Purrs & Breeps to all,

Every time Mommy goes into the kitchen to prepare her meals, I poke her on her legs with my paws A lot of times my claws get caught in her jeans or whatever slacks or pajama bottoms she's wearing. Twice I've reached too high and clawed her butt! OUCH! she said to that! She keeps telling me to stop and I don't want to listen to her. She also says if I ate the food she gives me and not only lick off the gravy, I wouldn't be begging her all the time.

Mommy, it's not only food I'm looking for. Sometimes it's NIP!! She does give in and gives me NIP a lot of times and not Not moist food as there's always dry food left out for me and the others.

Anyway, I'll keep mine short. Have a pawsome day, everycat.

Mommy's birthday is tomorrow, December 18th. I'm giving this present to her early as I always do every year. In keeping up with tradition, I again post "A Catmas Pawty" that I wrote when I was a young dude. Here goes:

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 five 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 16.3 on my last vet check earlier this year. 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!

Purrrrrrrrrrs & Breeeeeeeeeeeeeeeps,

I watched Mommy strip her bed and put on the clean bottom sheet. Then Landy and I jumped up to help her finish her task. Our way of doing this was to lay side by side in middle of her bed. Landy being a pest, sniffed me where I didn't want to be sniffed. I gave him a good swat and he backed off and jumped into the window perch to watch the birdies in the redbud tree. Good!

I finally let Mommy put on the top sheet, but I wouldn't let her finish putting on the blanket. She said, "that calls for a video" and went to get her camcorder. In fact, I posed for three videos and I understand these will be loaded onto my page and even FB! These are pretty good movies as my eyes didn't glow like most of my photos. And my purrrrrrrrrrr was very loud, I kissed the lens in one, and pawed at it in another.

Also, we have new Catmas pictures that will be put up very soon.

Have a pawsome weekend, my friends.

Purrs & Breeps,
