Meowmy witnessed a fire near Grandmaw and Grandpaw's house!

Meow,

Meowmy was visiting Grandmaw and Grandpaw this afternoon when all of a sudden she heard sirens. She went outside to see what was going on and about 3 houses down from Grandmaw and Grandpaw's house there was a fire. A man came out and it looked like he was either burned or had smoke inhalation. Then they brought out some animals. Two dogs appeared to be just fine. A little black dog was passed out and there was also a little cat too. After working on him/her for a while the firemen were able to revive the little dog, but unfortunately the little cat ended up going to the Rainbow Bridge as they just couldn't bring him/her back. Everyone was cheering for the firefighters when they were able to save the dog. At the same time, meowmy was really sad about the little cat that crossed over the Bridge. Maybe you Bridge kitties will be right there today to greet him/her. It was a cute, fluffy cat with white, black and orange spotted fur. Not sure of it's name. It appeared that there was only that one human in the house at the time. Hopefully he will have a speedy recovery. The ambulance came and took him to the hospital right away.

It's times like this that are a very good reminder to our humans to have a good escape plan in case of a fire and to make all trusted neighbors aware of any animals living in the house.

Hope everycat is having a happy and safe holiday weekend!

Fire Safety 101!

Meow,

When meowmy came home last night from Grandmaw and Grandpaw's she told me about the tragedy that occurred about 3 or 4 houses down from their house. She took the opportunity to talk to me about what to do in case of a fire. She told me that I had her permission to go outside right away and as far away from the house as possible, but that this is only in the event of a fire. I meowed at meowmy to tell her I understood. Hopefully nothing like this would ever happen at our place, but meowmy wants me to be preparred and to know what to do.

Everycat reading this should remember this too. You may feel scared and want to hide underneath a couch, but that is the worst thing you could possibly do. Please remember to leave the house!

Meowmy, Purrlease Bring Me Home Some Cat Food Samples While- You Are Out Tonight!

Meow,

So meowmy is going to this street festival near where we live called Jammin on Janesville. A lot of businesses along the road are giving out samples and having $1 food items to try and bring in business while road construction is being done. There is also live entertainment too. One of the businesses participating just happens to be my vet's office The Animal Doctor. I sure hope they are giving out free samples of cat food this year. Also, maybe they will be selling nip toys. They were last year. Hopefully meowmy will come home with presents tonight. It's going to be a little chilly out, otherwise meowmy would take me with her in the stroller, but she doesn't want me to get cold.

Hope everycat has a purrfect Friday and a great weekend!

Car Ride To A Place I Haven't Been Yet!

Meow,

So meowmy informs me that I am going to be going for a car ride. I'm not so sure I like this idea. She tells me that we are going to a place called St. Leonard's Catholic Church to get our picture taken. I guess that is o.k. as Catholic has Cat in the name right? It must be a cat friendly place. I just wonder why meowmy hasn't taken me here before. She tells me that she hasn't done this as this is supposed to be a holy place where people worship and it would be very disrespectful if I started meowing really loud during the service. She told me that I need to try and behave when we are there to get out picture taken and that I need to try and look as cute as possible in the pictures as some of them will be going out to friends and family in holiday cards.

I will share more about my professional photo shoot tomorrow!

Professional Photo Shoot Last Night!

Meow,

As I was meowing in my diary last night, meowmy and I went up to her church to have our pictures professionally taken. They took some of just meowmy, just me, and some of meowmy and I. We ordered some special pictures for us and one set for Grandmaw and Grandpaw. Meowmy also got a CD that she will be able to print more pictures off of on her own to put in holiday cards to all of our best friends and relatives.

I was pretty good last night for the photo shoot. I growled and hissed a couple times, but that was only because I was scared and in an unfamiliar place. The photographer was very patient with me and had this big feathery thing on a pole that was quite amusing. Of course I had my meowmy holding onto me most of the time and the photographer took one shot of me inside my stroller which turned out really good.

Meowmy is having wings without me!

Meeeooowww!

Not a happy cat this morning. Meowmy is talking about going over to Applebees for lunch today and having her free wings. As some of you cats may know, my meowmy won free wings for a year at Applebees earlier in the year. I bet she probably won't think to leave any for me. She never seems to. She says something about how they have sauce on them that might not be real good for me. I say who cares. Chicken is chicken to a kitty! Any other cat's thoughts on this matter will be greatly appreciated.

I'm also not very happy that meowmy is going off tonight with Grandmaw and Grandpaw for Concerts in The Park at Whitnall. She could have loaded me up in the stroller. Again, she says something about me continually meowing and disturbing the people around us. This just isn't fair!

Happy Father's Day!

Meow,

Happy Father's Day to all of the fur daddies out there! I don't have a daddy to celebrate with, but I do have a Grandpaw that I'm rather fond of. Whenever he comes over, he pays very good attention to me and makes it a point to play with me. Anymeow, I bought him (with my meowmy/secretary's help) a Happy Father's Day Grandpa card and a gift which I won't say right now just incase he might be reading this. Grandmaw and Grandpaw are going to brunch this morning, but meowmy can't make it as she has to work so they are all going to have a pizza party tonight. I wonder where my invitation is? I would like my very own pizza with extra anchovies.

Anymeow, I hope all the cat fathers have a great day today!

Cats Have Taken to The Streets!

Meow,

I'm not talking about a protest either. I'm talking about the fact that the street near us is a total mess and there are these big yellow Cats hanging out all along the side of the road. Sometimes they are moving and they make the strangest noise. They certainly don't meow. I really wonder why they call them Cats? They sure are funny looking too!

I Was Left Home Alone While Meowmy Saw Birdies!

Meow,

Again, I'm not a very happy kitty. Meowmy, Grandmaw and Grandpaw all went to Prairie Du Chien and into Iowa for a couple days and they didn't bother to take me with either. Yesterday, they went on a bird watching cruise and meowmy tells me that she saw a couple of Blue Herrings, more Bald Eagles than she's ever seen in her life and some finches. I certainly would have enjoyed this cruise. I wonder if the birds would have came up closer if I was there or if they just would have flown away.

Also, meowmy tells me that they went to a restaurant last night that had a buffet with several types of fish, shrimp and chicken. My mouth is watering just thinking of it and here I was stuck at home eating my usual dry cat food. That's just not right don't you think?

Also, if any of you cats recall the late, great Rocky Ann talking about Zippy, well meowmy tells me that she saw about two or three Zippy look a likes today at Wyalusing State Park when they stopped there on their way home. Again, I really would have liked to get to see a Zippy up close. Rocky Ann always talked about Zippy with such fondness.

Anymeow, I got my revenge on meowmy. I left her a nice big surprise to clean up on the carpet of my bedroom. That's right, I hacked up a nice big hairball for her just to show her my disgust.

Am I In Cowgirl Country?

Meow,

Of course I am! I am talking about the awful hot, dry weather we have been having over the last three days. It has been over 100 degrees here in Wisconsin, which is rare for us. You would think I was in cowgirl country in Arizona with these temperatures. Needless to say, meowmy tells me that it is just too hot for me to go out strolling. She is worried about me getting over heated. Oh well, I guess I'll just have to pretend I'm a cowgirl. Meowmy was really thinking when she picked out the border for my room that has a cowboy theme with cats on it. All I need for it to be cowgirl country for real is some scorpions, rattlesnakes, lizards, and little wild pigs just like what my friends Samoa, Newman, Gleek, and Inky have near them.

Anymeow, I sure hope everycat who is dealing with this oppressive heat is staying cool. I've been getting my beauty rest in the nice air conditioning. Sometimes I jump in my stroller and take a nap.
