A CATMAS STORY AGAIN FOR MOMMY'S BIRTHDAY

December 17th 2011 4:57 am
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ]

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,

HELPING MOMMY MAKE THE BED

December 11th 2011 4:37 am

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,

Merl

 

CONCATS TO LANDY

I extend my high-five to Landy for getting in the Diary Limelight today! Way to go, nutty bro!

I never thought of playing with fallen food or even leaves like Bail does. I love catnip and boxing Landy's butt. That's my entertainment. Once in a while I run up and down the stairs chasing Landy or Bail. And if Mommy waves a toy with feathers on it or a string, I'll play with that! As to toy mousies and balls, I don't play with those anymore.

Anyway, I'm going to keep this one short. Mommy has to get ready for work.

MY THANKSGIVING

November 26th 2011 7:09 am
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ]

As many may know, I'm scared when visitors come to the house or even yet, a plain old knock at the door gets me running and growling. I'm terrified each time and go upstairs to seek sancturary under Mommy's big bed.

So when there came a knock at the door and voices downstairs twice (Mommy's friend Mary to stay for several hours, and another knock at the door which turned out to be Mommy's neighbor delivering a home made sweet potato pie), I stayed upstairs and hid.

Later that evening, I got brave and decided to come out from under the bed and lay at the top landing of the stairs. When Mommy turned on the stairway light, she saw me laying there with my green eyes glowing. She motioned to her friend to come and look at who was "getting brave". Mary spoke soothingly to me and I didn't move at all. I watched closely, though. Now, that's brave for me to not run and hide. This is a first time for me. Mommy told me that she hopes I will eventually push past my fear of visitors and come downstairs like Sampy and Landy do.

Anyway, I got some turkey last night, and it was PAWSOME! It got my motor revving full force and I wanted more and more of that yummy stuff. Mommy says there's still a little turkey left and tonight we'll have more.

I hope everycat had a pawsome Thanksgiving and got to have some tastes of turkey. If you didn't, you're surely missing something that's out of this world!

Purrs & Breeps to all,

Merl

 

THROW PILLOW SLEEPER AND CHICKEN LOVER

Lately, Mommy has been finding one of the throw pillows flipped down on the living room couch. Everytime she puts it back into place, the next day she finds it down again. Yep, I'm the culprit. I'll fess up to this one. I love napping on this soft little brown pillow. Mommy saw me laying there today, in fact.

Also, I've taken a liking to the pre-cooked chickens Mommy brings home. This is the first type of meat that'll I'll eat. Out of the cat food meat, I only suck off the gravy. Of course, I eat salmon.

Lastly, I took a nice leap up to the cabinet above the 'fridge again. I looked down and saw Landy staring up at me. I suppose he was thinking I was too big and old to still be able to leap that high. Nosiree, not me! I got a lot of leaping power still in me!

I'M NOT USED TO THIS NEW TIME CHANGE

I suppose everycat has heard about how Sampy and I woke up mommy at 4:00 a.m. today. She told us to go back to sleep because the clocks were changed back; it wasn't 5:00 a.m. yet (the time we usually are in her face).

I don't think I'll get used to this time change. My tummy alarm goes off at 5:00 a.m. and that's what I thought it was.

Also, that Willow cat was on our back porch this afternoon. All of us guycats wanted to check her out. Bail and I waved at her. Sampy sang to her, and Landy went crazy over her. He couldn't stop staring at her. I think he's in love.

Anyway, I'm going to keep this one short. Mommy wants to grab something to eat.

Purrs & Breeps to all,

SINCE I'M THE WIZARD IN THE HOUSE . . .

I'm Merlin, the great and powerful wizard and I'm going to wave my wand at the sky to make all this cold weather go away!

The weather people were saying this time of the year in Maryland is supposed to be 60 degrees. NOT yesterday! We got 37 degrees while it was snowing that "white rain" as Mommy calls it. After the wet snow was over, the temps dropped more to give us our first frost.

Today it's supposed to hit 47 degrees. As to Halloween, it should go into the 50's (hopefully the upper 50's).

Because of all this cold, I've been sleeping with Mommy all week.

Anyway, I'm going to take a nap. Have a good day and if you live where it's cold, purrlease keep warm!

Purrs & Breeps,

Merl

 

DOUBLE DIARY PICK!

Landy and I are both in the Diary Spotlight today, paw in paw! Thank you Diary Gal for this honor!

My diary about our fun time surely worked. She also liked Landy's diary about the new litterbox.

I also thank our good friends Buddie & Family for their pawsome pawmail concats for my DDP!

I'm going to keep this short as Landy needs a turn and then it's breakfast time.

Purrs & Breeps,

THE CAT CRAZIES

October 16th 2011 9:03 am
[ Leave A Comment ]

Landy had a case of the cat crazies this morning so I decided to join him in his antics. He was running around in the kitchen and dining room so I ran after him and bopped him on the tail and butt. He came after me and we started a nice wrestling match. He then broke loose and ran into the living room and ducked under the big red chair. I saw his tail sticking out so I bopped that a good one. Then, to my surprise, he launched himself (sliding on his back and flailing his front paws at me)from under the couch's dust ruffle. I never seen any of us do this trick. I think only he can do this! Anyway, we started another wrestling match and then he went back under the couch. It was then that I gave up. That little guy surely tires me out and I'm only a year older; of course I'm 6 lbs heavier!

Anyway, that was our fun time this morning.

Lastly, I kind of like that new litterbox. I'm a big kitty so it's going to become my favorite next to the other big uncovered one. I also like the new sissel mat that one of the litterboxes sits.

Have a nice weekend everycat!

HERE WE GO AGAIN! THIS TIME IT'S MY TURN!

I just wrote a nice rap song for Cammie today and went to save it, to no avail! The "logon" fleas sucked it up!

I'm appawled to the max! So, all diaries will be short and not original until this issue is fixed. They'll all be boring tests. I know I don't want to waste anymore time having a nice diary vanish again.

Concats Cam . .

This is a test.

Purrs & Breeps,
