Meow,

I just wanted to let everycat know that I found the purrfect Catmas gift for meowmy today - mice! She doesn't think mousies are the purrfect gift, but just wait until Catmas Eve when we get together with Grandmaw and Grandpaw. She will not be disappointed. She will be impressed with my mouse hunting abilities.

One Catmas Celebration Down!

Meow,

Boy, Oh Boy, Oh Boy! Catmas time is here! I'm so excited!

Yesterday, meowmy went to her aunt's house (Dad's side) in Madison for an early Catmas celebration. Meowmy told me that one of the things they served was chicken. No fair! I wish meowmy would have thought to take me along so I could have had some chicken.

Best pawt of all were the pawresents! Meowmy received some nice ones. She received a gift card for our local grocery store, some chocolates (she can enjoy those as us cats aren't supposed to have chocolate.), a little glove like thing to pick up cat furr off of furniture (that will come in very handy.), some lightbulbs, and a bunch of tote bags. Does everycat want to know what my favorite pawresent was that meowmy received? Give up? It was the fancy gift bags and tissue paper that the gifts came in. I had to sneak my head in the bags and I played around with the tissue paper. Meowmy balled it up for me and I bunny kicked it around.

Catmas is going to be pawsome this year! I just know it and it's not even over yet. Meowmy has two more celebrations, one of which I will be a pawt of.

Pawty at My Condo Today!

Meow,

Did everycat just see that? I think I'm going to be having a pawty at my house today.

Meowmy went to the grocery store and bought some ingredients to make some Cranberry-Apple Crisp and later today she is going to be making some Chicken Dorito Casserole. Sounds delish!

I hope I can help her out and be a taste tester. I wish I could invite all my cat friends over to try some too. I bet meowmy would be completely out of food then.

Anymeow, I hope everycat's weekend is off to a purrfect start. I'm off to go help meowmy.

Catmas Cards

Meow,

I just wanted to say thanks to the Strickland and Kalbacher families for their cute Catmas cards. I have them hanging up in our living room above our tv, so whenever I'm sitting infront of it watching Animal Planet, I can look up and and think of my Catster furrends.

I hope everycat is enjoying the holiday season so far. As many of you cats might agree, the Catmas tree is very fun to play around. I especially like the decorative balls hanging from it. I love to swat at them. Meowmy always yells at me for doing that. I don't get it, humans always have to take the fun out of Catmas.

Happy Turkey Pawty Day!

Meow,

Today is the day everycat longs for - Turkey Day! But you know what, I probably won't get any turkey today me thinks. You see, my meowmy is going to her mom's side of the family in Madison to celebrate today and her cousins are vegetarians and everyone else are not big turkey people. Pawsonally, I think that's a little odd not liking turkey. Us kitties think it's the best. If anything don't you think they could have cooked a turkey for us kitties in the family. You see there's my cousins Pookers, Penelope, Kitty Mae, Aurora, Ava and meowself. I'm sure we all could have polished off that bird in no time. However, meowmy informs me that my cousins Penelope, Pookers, Aurora, and Ava won't be there. They will be staying back in their respective homes in Minnesota and Illinois. What about the football games and parades? I'm going to miss out on too. Sigh!

Oh well, I guess I'm just going to have to enjoy a nice Thanksgiving Day meal of Natures Variety Chicken Meal and Brown Rice Medley. I guess I'll just have fun playing with my toys and catnapping. I hope my meowmy has a good time with her relatives and enjoys whatever food they are having. Meowmy says it's always delicious. I guess I'll take her word on that.

Meow with ya'll later,

Colleen

 

Happy Birthday Grandpaw!

Meow,

I'd like to wish my Grandpaw a very Happy Birthday today. He is 66 years old. That's really getting up there in cat years, MOL.

Meowmy, Grandmaw and Grandpaw are going to Applebee's tonight to celebrate. I wonder what they are going to have? They better bring me home some good leftovers. Also, meowmy and I bought him some presents. We sure hope he likes them. I had a few ideas for presents myself, but meowmy said that Grandpaw probably wouldn't appreciate the kind of presents I would give.

Anymeow, I hope everycat's weekend is off to a good start!

Boo!

Meow,

Did I scare anycat? Happy Halloween!

My Halloween is off to a purrty good start. I got some extra snuggle time with meowmy this morning. I saw these soft things that looked to me like cat toys. I started playing with them and chewing on them. I heard meowmy yell at me, "Colleen, NO! Those are meowmy's new slippers." Oh so that's what those things are.

Anymeow, my meowmy is going over to Grandmaw and Grandpaw's house today to help pass out treats to the trick-or-treaters in their neighborhood. Meowmy likes to dress up and watch the kiddies in their costumes. She tells me they get over 100 kids every year. On the other paw, in our neighborhood, we are lucky to get 5. The most we ever had were 25 one year. I think I will join meowmy this year at our place and dress up. I have my Hello Kitty pumpkin all ready and full of treats to help pass out to the kids.

Happy Halloween Weekend!

Meow,

I wanted to start off by wishing everycat on Catster a Happy Halloween weekend.

My weekend is off to a pretty good start. Last weekend, Grandmaw and Grandpaw gave meowmy and I a card and some Halloween Gifts. Meowmy got a Starbucks gift card and I got some money to buy whatever kind of treat or toy I would like. Well, meowmy knows I love Tiki, so today after she was done at the gym, she stopped at my V-E-T's office and picked me up a couple cans of Tiki along with some more of my dry cat food which I was low on.

Meowmy came home with a new costume. She plans on dressing up as a Queen of Hearts when she passes out treats. I have two options for costumes. I have a Yellow Submarine costume or a pair of skeleton pajamas. I'm not sure which one I'll choose yet. Meowmy has pictures of me in both on her Facebook page.

I sure wish I could go Trick-or-Treating. However, meowmy tells me that people don't typically give out cat-friendly treats. You mean to tell me they don't hand out Tiki or Catnip?

Anymeow, have a good weekend and those cats who get treats, remember don't eat too many. You don't want to end up with an upset tummy the next day.

Meowmy is Home Today and She had to go to the human V-E-T!

Meow,

Meowmy took a day of vacation to be home with me and because she had to go to the human V-E-T. You see meowmy isn't sick, but she just had to go for her yearly physical. Meowmy reported that no she didn't have any encounters with rude Mr. Thermometer, besides she informed me that with humans, Mr. Thermometer goes in the mouth. Gee for that reason, I do wish I was human. Although, meowmy did tell me that the vampires came in towards the end and took two vials of her blood. I wonder why vampires have to come out and torture us cats and our humans? I guess it might make sense around this time of the year since it is getting close to Halloween, but why do they have to come out at other times of the year? Anymeow, meowmy got a pretty good report from her human V-E-T so far. She just has to wait for the lab work results. Lab work? You mean the vampires draw blood and then they send it off to Frankenstein's lab?

Anymeow, I've been doing well and enjoying my extra time with meowmy. We've been snuggling up in bed in the morning and watching horror movies on Chiller. Also, it's been interesting looking out the patio door. All I can say is - Where did our gate go? I liked it being enclosed so the chipmunks could get in and I could watch them up close. Meowmy told me not to worry, that they were replacing our old gate with a much nicer looking new one. In the meantime, I guess I settle with watching those big swimming birds near the pond. Meowmy tells me those are Canadian Geese.

I hope everycat reading this has a pawsome Friday and a pawsome weekend.

Cats for Peace and Pumpkin!

September 25th 2010 5:05 am

Meow,

You may think that sounds like a strange title for a diary entry, but this is exactly what I'm going to meow about - peace and pumpkin.

Furrst of all meowmy is going to this Walk/Run for Peace this morning at one of the local parks. She received an e-mail that said that dogs on leashes were welcome. WTM? Do they not think some of us cats want world peace and social justice? I'm mean it would be nice if there came a time when cats and mice got along and could live in harmony with each other and not be at war. As far as social justice goes, there is alot to be done as far as I'm concerned. Cats do not have it equal in this world. Dogs get their own parks and we don't. They get to participate in some charity walks and we don't. We still can't get into public places like humans can. I really think us cats knead to get together and form our own organization for peace. I think I would call it the Feline Peace Action Committee.

To make my day a little better though, meowmy went over to Starbucks this morning and got one of those Pumpkin Spice Lattes and a Pumpkin Scone. Meowmy said I couldn't have the Pumpkin Spice Latte as it has coffee in it and coffee is bad for cats, but she broke off a piece of Pumpkin Scone for me and I ate that right up. It was delicious. I would really recommend that everycat try them. Not only is pumpkin tasty, but it helps prevent us kitties from getting backed up. I'm definately for preventing that. Meowmy said that after the Peace Walk she is going to be meeting Grandmaw and Grandpaw and going to this thing called Harvest Fair. It's kinda like a big farmer's market and they have entertainment there and also they have yummy food there that is fall themed. Meowmy tells me they have pumpkin ice cream there. I wish I could go so that I could share some with her.

Because my meowmy/secretary is very busy today, I am probably going to miss my furrend Mittens and Tessa's wedding, but I sent them a gift and hope they received it. Congrats again Mittens and Tessa!

I hope everycat has a peaceful and relaxing Saturday.

Colleen
