My journal is "active" again?! Wow! Who reads my journal?! So exciting! I bet even SUPERMAN reads my journal!!!! or maybe at least Sparky Fuzzypants! (I love that name!)

In other fun news, my brother Chester just got his wings!!! We're all so excited! Thank you Willow and Samoa for sending the picture of him! Mom and I put it up on his page.

Capt. Morgan's birthday's getting closer!!! And both Orca and Lucy have suggested parties... So I'll keep everybody informed on when and where!!! Captain spends a lot of time in the Black and White Ankle Biters Group, so maybe there?!

Phewww... Any other news?! ummm.... Moose corralled a sizable herd of green pomp pomp balls into our water fountain this morning. So it's unplugged right now while Mom cleans it out. And I am just chirping with excitement right now be85ca7 (and walking on the keyboard!) because my sibbies are all asleep and I get Mom to myself!!! Time for petting!

Way to go, Orca! He's such a great group leader. Here he's planned Captain's birthday party!!!! It will be on the Black and White Ankle Biters Club page... So if you're not part of the club and still want to wish him well, he'll be online off and on all day!! just drop a pawmail or IM! (off line being the times when the catnip goes to his head and he's passed out.) Purrrrs and giggles!

Party details from Orca:

"Ok everyone we are going to give the captain a surprize pawty. It will run all day on the 22nd. Sparkman says that the captain has a weakness for catnip so we are going to set up a post called "a bit of the nip" in the forum to lure him in."

 

Operation Blanket Theft 2007

February 23rd 2007 10:15 am

This morning I almost had the large heavy green blanket unloaded, but it seemed to be stuck on something. So I was hopping around, tugging, and holding its edge in my mouth when I heard shifting on the bed! Abort mission!!!! It must have been my hopping up and down... My recently grown back claws do make a clatter on the hard wood floor... arrrg...

Mom woke up and looked out in the hall where I sat calming bathing my paw on the button quilt blanket as though nothing more had happened. She's getting used to waking up without the button blanket being on the bed, so she didn't get mad at all! She even let me play with it until after her shower and coffee! Fun!!!

And as to the failed green blanket-nap attempt... I left it hanging conspicuously off the side of the bed. The hunt continues!!!

 

Sending message along....

Potato Baby and Blanket Adventures Continue!...

I have a pet potato now. He's soft and over ripe, so Mom said I could keep him for a little while! (In truth I wasn't leaving that potato sac she brought out without a potato friend! Captain taught me that scurvy trick!) So now I chase it around and bunny kick it with my back feet... Mom says I have potato breath most of the day lately. But it's just so fun! How did I live without a potato friend!?! I highly encourage all cats to kidnap wayward veggies.

In other news, Dad tried to resist my nightly blanket snatching by holding onto the end of the quilty blanket as I pulled it off the bed last night. But not worry! I quickly showed him who's king of the blankets! He fell asleep, and I stole TWO! He woke up shivering and telling Mom we need more blankets on the bed. You know what that means?! More blankets for me to steal!!! What a nice guy, that Dad of mine! Ha ha!

gotta get back and check on the potato baby...

 

My Polar Expedition!

February 28th 2007 6:05 am
[ Leave A Comment ]

OH MY GOSH! Mom and Dad let us outside last night!!! Now, they've been letting us on the glassed in porch (that Capt. Morgan has all these crazy names for like "crows nest" it's not a nest at all!), but they usually leave the door shut tight. The best we can do is sniff at the breeze that comes through the old window panes. We've been having this snow storm in Duluth for a few days now... Moose was the one who convinced them to let us out, I'm sure of it!

He was digging at the window glass (like he does whenever he sees Dad on the other side), when Mom just up and says "Awww, lets let the babies out to see the snow! How far can they go?" Heee heee heee

So at first we have them fooled, we're just sitting and walking calmly on the stairs. Then Moose starts to dangle over the railing and Mom and Dad are watching him like hawks... So Capt. Morgan and I start a fairly good gallop! Silly parents had just shoveled out the snow along the sideways and driveway... So I charged in one direction down the walkway and Morgan down the other! What fun, right?! No planning, we just went with it! It was sheer brilliance. Morgan says I'm totally on my way to being a real Pirate and not just a Scallywag!

So Dad chased me all the way to the neighbor's front walkway and I was climbing into their big bush looking for snow monsters to battle or birds to eat, just about anything at all that could make this expedition into the snow an adventure, when these huge hands grabbed me!

I was terrified! I struggled and twisted around and back flipped and almost hissed and then ran full speed back to the sidewalk, back to our walk way and right back into the house!!! Then slightly winded and terrified I turned around to see that it was just Dad... He was following me with this concerned but slightly amused expression... how embarrassing! Those cloth covered things were really HIS hands?!

But really?! What was he doing grabbing people and startling them in that strange land of the outside! And in that white deep SNOW no less! Hmpf! You need more manners than that, Dad! I know how to get him back though... It's blanket stealing time!!!

 

Thanks Peeps!

Snow Snow SNOW!!!

WOW! So last night was terrifying, there was wind there was lightning, and there was SNOW! The humans were out shoveling so early that the guys and I were still sleeping... Mom let us out on the porch eventually and I was just amazed!

I thought that when a few flakes of this stuff fell it was exciting; and then the other night when they let me run around in the shoveled path I thought it was exciting; but NOW it's just amazing! The drifts the humans shoveled through are past their waists, the piles they made by shoveling are as tall as them.

Now earlier when I made that mad dash, Mom said she could see where I was because the tip of my tail was taller than the snow. So theres my tail running along behind me and giving me away (I gave it a good biting for that). But NOW when I make a mad dash, I am WELL HIDDEN! Ha ha!!! If only they'd let us out again! What fun we'd have!!!! Gotta make my escape plots. I bet Captain's game for this one!

Purrrs!

 

Introducing the Bat the Nose Game!!

March 5th 2007 6:37 am
[ Leave A Comment ]

Stealing blankets, biting ankles, back flipping, bathtub licking, curtain climbing, radiator stealing, potato baby sitting, orange ball wars, mousie fetch, arctic adventures, and button biting were just not keeping me busy enough. So I invented a new game!!! It's one for when the humans are asleep.

It requires the stealth of a tiger, the agility of a puma, and the goofiness of a camel... My Mom seems to make the best victim. (But only when Dad's out of the room. For some reason he interrupts my new sport) So Mom's laying on her pillow asleep and I have to walk quietly, if I purr she wakes up. (Which results in cuddling. which isn't bad, but totally not part of the game)

So I sneak up, and try REALLY hard not to step on the blankets or pillow too hard... closer... closer... Then bat her on the nose!!!! Before she wakes up angry, I start purring really hard and just lightly touch her nose with my wet little nose. If all goes well she'll pull me under the covers for cuddling. But if she ignores me, I just grab her hair and start running off with it in my mouth! THAT wakes her up!

Mystery SOLVED!

I, the amazing gifted and hypurrrrrr super kitten, have solved the mystery of the "Active" List!!!!! It could have taken a lot of flying backwards around the planet and digging Lois Lane out of a big cracking earthquake fracture, but being the super kitten... I prefer to climb to the tops of high mountains and ask robed monks the answers to life's tough questions... Like why can't Captain and I get cheese at every meal?

So, I was getting mighty curious about that whole "Active" list on the Diaries page (What with me AND Captain being on it!). So Mom and I paw-mailed Catster HQ!!!
Here's what they said:

"The active diaries are those with the most entries over the last month.
Thanks for loving Catster. We love you right back!

Meow!
-catster-"

Isn't Catster just the best at its reply emails?!
