Catfood Recall...

March 18th 2007 10:23 am
[ Leave A Comment ]

I am so glad to see that this info has been buzzing around Catster!!!! But just in case anyone who reads my diary hasn't heard, here's my kitten styled reporting of the recall:

************************************************* ******
Why are we scared? Because our vets recommend Iams to so many of us as a safe healthy alternative to so many catfoods out there that do horrible things to kitties... I eat Iams dry, and all my cousins and uncles eat Iams wet and dry! Have for years! And now to hear that something sold under it's name is killing pets and being recalled is horrifying. Shame on you, Iams!

The recall is for "Iams and Eukanuba as well as other non-P&G brands" produced by Menu Foods.

The Iams website is flooded today and it's taking a long time to load. So after much sitting with Mom and biting my tail, I finally got the important info and am passing it along!

DRY FOOD, GRAVY, AND TREATS ARE NOT BEING RECALLED. But canned wet food and wet food in pouches are. So get all the Iams wet out of th cupboard and gather round!!

"To read can product codes, refer to the bottom of the can. The first four numbers of the second line of numbers are the date code, and the following four numbers indicate the plant code.

For example, if the second line begins with four numbers from 6339 to 7073 followed by the plant code 4197, then the can should be recalled.

For foil pouches, the code numbers are located at the lower left hand corner on the back of the pouch. The date and plant codes appear in the third group of numbers, beginning an 11-digit sequence. See www.Iams.com and www.Eukanuba.com for illustrated details. Review the list of involved products here."

Re-Discovered the Best Pillow Ever!

In case you forgot, as I did for a week or so there... the BEST pillow in the world is (drum roll please) CAPTAIN MORGAN'S FEET! He's a compulsive bather of his white parts (which include his feet and toes) so they never smell of litter or anything. And they're the perfect height. And WARM. And soft... And they're just such great pillows that when Captain moved off the radiator to the carpet, and then to the couch... I just followed right along napping and cuddling up to his great pillow feet!!! Ahh, man... This is the life!

Stop moving, Captain!

 

TOYS Toys Everywhere!!!!

Mom and Dad rearranged the furry-niture in the living room, and I was AMAZED at how many toys I've lost under that couch thing! The whole area under the couch, there was like this shadow made up of all mousies, balls, springy toys, catnip toys, pom poms, pines cones, even sticks and string I'd lost!!! It was truly like a buried treasure. Captain's so excited he's been wrestling this red string mouse most of yesterday, and I've been playing fetch with my newly recovered cloth mouse! Moose is just happy that there's more floor space with the new arrangement for him and Mom to do their yoga... How DOES he bend like that?! He is just an amazing yogi!!!

Purrrrrrrrrssss!!!

 

Whoo hooo!!!!

Captain says we have to sit out on the porch all day!!!! I don't know why! But I'm excited!!!! There's squirrels and birds out there and Mom put out bird seed to bring them in closer for us to watch!!! Now if only I was a little smaller, I bet I could have fit through that mail slot and actually caught one of those squirrels... I am just drooling. Gotta get back to the porch! bye!

 

Whiny Humans!!!

My humans are so whiny! Just this morning I've already heard:

"That's my head, not the pillow you're charging across."

"The hairbrush is not a food group."

"How can I wash my hands if you're in the sink?"

"Its a bag of coffee beans, not a kitten cave with tiny bean monsters."

"That's your brother, not a chew toy."

"Okay so THESE are chew-able socks?"

"When your brother hisses, he's done playing with you."

"Don't sit in the food dish."

"Ahhh! Attack of the carpet crab again!?!"

"MY coffee, your milk cup. Keep them straight."

"My coffee is not for bathing paws in."

"Give back that tasty fish food lid and don't poke holes in it!"

"So it THAT where the blanket went?"

"My what a nice yarn tangle sculpture you three made last night!"

"Don't jump in my breakfast plate!"

"Why are you wet?"

"You can not visit the porch while wet."

"How did you track litter all the way over here?!"

"Stop climbing curtains."

"My fingers are NOT removable."

 

My Morning Bath...

I am just drenched! I love playing in the sink, but this is a little TOO wet. I play in the sink while Dad brushes his teeth and such (Why the heck do humans DO that? They're just going to get dirty again!). I like pawing at the stream of water and taking quick drinks.

So Dad did something to make the water not go down the hole thingie, and I was sitting in there while the water started piling up. So I did what any smart kitty would do! I tried to dig to the bottom of it! It seemed like I was digging forever without progress, the water just kept splashing back on me. Mom and Dad even went and got the camera... What? Never seen a kitten playing with water before?

Finally gave up and jumped to the floor and shook off my paws a little. Then headed right for the litter box! Yeahhhh, MUD!!!! I heard Dad say "good thing we don't use clumping litter!" Clumping? What's that?!

Pirate Climbing 101

March 7th 2007 5:51 am
[ Leave A Comment ]

So yesterday the humans did laundry and set up the new drying rack thing... It's really a kitty jungle gym, and this one's twice as tall!!!! So Captain tells me to wait and he's all acting cute around Mom and sweet around Dad... So I knew he was planning something!

So when Dad was in the computer room and Mom in the shower, the Captain made his first move... He shot right to the top of the drying rack and climbed onto the hall closet's door frame! He looks down at me blinking and trying to tell me something, but he's so danged far away that I'm all deaf and confused. Better climb up to him to hear what he's saying...

But before I can figure out how, I get nervous and start chirping at him. Then I try and swing onto the first rung of the rack, chirping all the way. So Mom comes out in a towel to see why I'm chirping and starts scolding me to stay off... ME? Look at HIM!

She goes back into the bathroom and I can hear the Captain snickering an evil pirate chuckle up there. So I start chirping and trying to climb again... I'm just not as skilled as Captain, so I gave up and started just throwing socks off the rung I could reach.

Mom comes out again and I just freeze, put on a cute face. The rack wobbles a bit and I watch Mom's eyes slowly climb up to see the Captain, Perched on top of the rack and door frame! All she yells out is "CAPTAIN!" He just yelps a little kitten mew and then jumps down all that way!!! He's SUCH a talented pirate! How the heck does he do those things?! And get away with them!!!!?! I have so much to learn.
