Boy, have I got news for you guys today! We had this crazy wind storm here in Duluth for couple days. All over the city trees were falling on power lines, poles were falling down, and big chunks of the city were without electricity, whatever that is. And no one knew how long this would go on! Mom said we couldn't go onto Catster!!! It was seriously horrible.

Mom came home from work to find the clocks dim and the fridge not making its usual noises... She looks at me and says "WE have a job to do!" I followed her dutifully into the kitchen where she pulled out the COW JUICE JUG! I was just all purrs, my job involves THAT?! Pawsome!

So she pours out a glass for herself, one for me, one for Capt. Morgan, but of course none for Moosie (Who gets mighty stinky after that stuff). So I'm all purrs drinking my job. I run out of milk and look at her, chirping "My job! My job!" So she pour me another helping... Oh, it was great! Capt. Morgan and I rolled around on the carpet purring and bathing in our JOB!

The humans ate outside with the grill and nothing seemed too weird until Mom came in to visit the bathroom. I followed her in, so she can turn on the faucet for me and let me get a drink. But I found the weirdest thing in the world... Mom called it a candle. I was allowed to squint at it and sniff at it. But not to touch it. She was very insistent on that! Which just meant that every time the humans went near that room I ran in and stared at that glowing beautiful thing. I was just in love. So beautiful! Smells warm and soft... And the humans blew on it, and it disappeared. It must hate getting blown on, just like me!!

Finally Dad let me in a little closer to almost touch my nose to it! But Mom came in and is all "Watch out! Your Whiskers!!! My baby!" And snatched me up as Dad blew on it... They're so mean to candle! They're so mean to me!

Oh, and Capt. Morgan was very excited because a tree fell on the neighbor's house. He TOTALLY missed the candle coolness!

 

Shout out to Zoe!

So so so my Grand-human just called to tell me that I have a fan in his summer school class! Hi Zoe!!! Take care of your fuzzy friend and get him/her on Catster!!!

Apparently my Grand-human printed out my latest photo of utter and complete cuteness and showed it to his students, who are of course fans of the feline... So one goes "Hey! I saw that cat on Catster!" and goes on to tell my grand-human all about my Fourth of July experiences!!! I'm so touched and honored! *wipes tear from eye* Great to have fans find me. I'm all purrs!

Purrs

Fourth of July?

Yesterday morning the humans are all cheerily talking about some "Fourth of July" thing and bragging about not going to work... I asked that source of supreme cosmic and yogi knowledge Moose what the heck the "Fourth of July" is. In his bad mastery of speech, he somehow managed to tell me that the "Fourth of July" is the evening when he and I will hide under the covers in the bed while Captain Morgan roams the house for "Attacking ships and cannon fire." I thought that sounded like a great time! But had no idea what he meant.

First, the other human friends came over and brought a DOG! They left it outside, but we could all see it there looking at us. I was TERRIFIED! I'm so glad Capt. Morgan is brave. He just stood his ground at the window and glared that dog into submission! I mean really; that big mean nasty no doubt cat eating dog was all whimpers and whines watching the mighty Captain! What a great big brother I have! Absolutely terrifies intruders.

Then the humans all left and these LOUD noises started up! Captain Morgan screamed "CANNON FIRE! ALL HANDS PREPARE FER BATTLE!" And a bunch of other pirate prattle, started running around from window to window. I found a nice high spot on the staircase to keep a lookout and hide from the first line of danger. Moose laid his ears back and looked very confused. After a while he started running around with the Captain, but letting Captain be the brave one looking out windows and shouting weird pirate slogans into the darkness.

Those silly humans didn't come home until after all the noise and excitement! I bet they didn't even know about all the scary loudness cause they were all smiles and chattering... Crazy humans! They're always NOT home when something scary happens.

 

Catnip Field of Myth!

What the heck?! I was Diary of the Day yesterday?!!!! That's twice in one week! Whoa! *gasp* I must be a brilliant and amazing kitten with immense fan base and stalkers! Crazy stuff.

But thank you again to all of my friends for the love and support and congratulations! I just love the love here on Catster! Hope you all have a fun and wild, fun, and safe couple of holidays planned! Mom says we get to eat REAL salmon! (Or maybe she was saying she and Dad are going to... I better get SOME!)

So hrmmm... Do I have any new stories for you? I told you about the fantabulous pillow, my discovery of cucumbers, and you know I'm a goat... hrrmmm...

I think the only new news I have is that theres a rumor going around that we now have a CATNIP field planted!!! We overheard our parents talking about it and saw them walking around with a live catnip plant and seeds and garden tools. Captain says its going to be behind the water garden int he back yard. Mom picked and area that gets some sun, but is relatively hidden from view. And that she's just planting it up with catnip for us! When Captain was last off his leash he went looking for the field of myth, but he ran away from the water garden. So I'm guessing he missed it. But ha ha! Just wait until *I* get off my leash next time! I'm b-lining for that catnip! It's rolling in the nip time, everybody! Purrs!!!

Oh Purrs and back flips everybody, I can't wait!

Happy Canada Day!

Purrs of a Wild Crazy Ninja Like Kitten...

Purrs Everybody! Thanks for the love!

Thank you so much for all the paw mails and rosies and praises on my various club pages! You make a kitty feel so special! Purrrrs! Captain Morgan, Moose, and I celebrated with a big kitty brawl and catnip roll all over the carpet. Mom purposely made herself a dinner with potatoes, so I could have a treat! Yum!!! Oh, and she let me try cumber last night too... Those waxy skins aren't half bad!

Then last night I used my mad pillow stealing skills to steal Mom's pillow... I went into the litter box (Which Mom was supposed to clean out before bed), got all perfume-y. Then climbed onto Mom's pillow for a long drawn out bath. Mom woke up and winced at my ripe oder. Then slid off the pillow and just let me have the whole thing to myself!!! This is great. I gotta remember this strategy when the litter gets ripe again... But for some reason she woke up and changed the litter box out before she made that coffee stuff even?! Weird.

 

Where it's at: Sparkman reports on pillow sleeping.

I think I've found the best place to sleep on that whole big bed the humans sleep on... It's on their PILLOWS! I just wait till they're asleep and then snuggle up by Mom's head. It helps to rest my rump on her face, but she wakes up and gets mad. Usually mumbles something about a liter box smell and shoves my rear away from her nose. So I just settle for sleeping on the pillow she's not on, and then I slowly shift my tail over her head. Purr. Chew on her hair. Sleeping humans are so much more fun! I mean you can totally stick a claw into their ear without them noticing!

But the hard part is waking them up. I mean, sometimes I really have to swat at Mom 's nose with my claws out just to make her open those eyes. She's as bad as Captain Morgan! And she doesn't have that rum-pot excuse he has. Yeesh, what a drunken sailor he can be!

But back to the humans... They just are so groggy that sometimes they even rely on this LOUD machine to wake them up. It goes BUZZZZ! And I just flatten my ears and stick claws into Mom's head, "WAKE UP AND MAKE IT STOP, MOMMMMYYY!!!" Moose heads for the hills when he hears it, and the Captain is so weird. He just rolls over, looks at them, decides if they're both getting up or just one, and then repositions himself cuddled up to the feet of whomever is staying in bed... How can he STAND that thing?!

ps-- When Chester was around, he had a favorite stand of flowers in the garden. They were yellow lilies that he used to walk up to, pull down with one paw and just gently sniff. We call them the "Chester Lilies." You can see a picture of one on his page! The Chester Lilies just started blooming this week, in his honor.

 

Whoa What a Great Safari!

I bet many of my adoring fans had no idea that I was on a Safari!!!! WITH all my brothers, even! I myself have been chewing on my new catnip wonton so much that I barely remember. (Thank you, Grand-human-ma! That new rope knitted wonton is Ninja proof!)

Apparently I got some nice back flips going on a Hippo. (Yes, yes I am VERY talented) And Morgan and Moose rode on a tortoise and and Chester brought tuna sandwiches for everybody!!! We are such a lively crew. But we were definitely awe-ed by the huge beautiful jungle.

If you want to read more about the cool safari, go to Navin's Diary and read all about it! The mighty Navin Coug organized and reported on the whole thing. He even wrote us a cool song about it!... I'm still humming...

Thanks for the great time, Navin!
