I had a diary pic!!! Thank you friends for letting me know! Mom was out of town and missed it. But she says I get even MORE potato treats when that happens, cause she feels guilty... She should! I mean, I'm the center of all attention! How dare she forget!?!
Mom was gone just long enough for us to get a good thick layer of cat fur on every surface of the house. And we were really feeling proud of the cat bachelor pad oder we were all acquiring. (We had an awesome pet sitter, in case she's reading this. It's not her fault we're little boy cats! I mean, I blame PurrC for the worst smells. That dude stinks!)... Then the first thing Mom did today was clean the whole house & wipe us down with a dryer sheet (to get us less static-y). And threatened to dump PurrC in a tub, but he got away... And now I smell like coconut hand lotion. I think Mom petted me too soon after putting that stuff on herself.
I'd complain more, but the truth is that I'm just thrilled to have Mom back, even if I smell like a coconut! I woke her up twice last night, just loudly purring to have her back on her half of our pillow... Missed you, Mom! Never ever go on a vacation away again, please.

Sparkman, my mommy says that potatoes are not good for kitties. What are these potato treats you're talking about?
hehehe glad your hummin is home and safe!
Coconut??! dude that's funny it is good your mom is home we sure do miss our mom when she gone too.
Hmm, well, there are worst things to smell like than coconut!
I know what you mean Sparkman! It's the worst when Mom is gone.
I bet you are so very happy to have your Mom home with you again.
ConCats on being DDP today my friend! hope you are having a good day getting some extra love and hugs
Hey Finney! The "potato treats" are that I like raw potatoes. Mom cuts them into kibble sized pieces... Hope they're not bad for cats! I've been eating them almost all my life! What has she heard?!
OMG Sparkman!!!! You should not be eating those at all!!!! You are lucky you haven't gotten sick yet but honestly no matter how much you love them I would not chance this anymore! Just because you haven't gotten sick yet, doesn't mean it can't happen. Some people can't even handle raw potatoes.
Potatoes are members of the solanaceae family of plants and are related to deadly nightshade. They contain a bitter, poisonous alkaloid called glycoalkaloid solanine that can cause violent lower gastrointestinal symptoms. Cooking will destroy that toxin. and any uncooked or green potatoes and potato peelings are all toxic. Once cooked, the alkaloid is destroyed making the potato safe.
