My Polar Expedition!

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!!!

 

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...

 

Sending message along....

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!!!

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."

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!

New Game Plan.

This new game I invented, it gets your humans out of bed in the night (you know, when they really should be up playing with you) and you use your amazing super strength and its just so fun and I managed to make the Captain fluff up like a raccoon!!!!

So the other night I was pouncing around on the bed as usually when I say a button! Now you might know how incredible buttons are, but when I see Mom's wearing them I will literally run down the hall and across the computer room and clear over her typing fingers just to bite the buttons on her shirt... So there's one sitting on the bed! I started biting at it, trying to take it away, when I realized someone had gotten it stuck to a quilt. So I just kept pulling and running backwards until the quilt and I both ended up on the floor.

Now I really wanted that button for my bat cave hoard, so I kept pulling on it and we (the quilt and I ) ended up in the hall. Well, Captain Morgan was walking past and saw me and this huge mass of cloth coming and he just fluffed up like a blimp! It was hilarious! All his fur was just up on end, his tail was like HUGE. Mom and Dad both jumped out of bed, Dad for the blanket and Mom to comfort the Captain. Fun, right?!

So last night I took off with that plaid blanket with the fringe... SO MUCH FUN! I can't wait till tonight, they'll never expect if I grab the thick wool one!!! Rawr! I'm so amazing. I'm a super kitten!!!

 

Orange Menace Defeated!!!

Happy to report that with the last litter box changing, the corpse of the much feared, orange ball of evil was sent to that big garbage dump in the sky!!!! After much gnawing and kicking and attacking, I finally wrestled it into the litter box... Moose did the honors, and Mom was so disgusted with the looks of our orange monster that she agreed that it was dead, dead, dead!

In other news, Mom gave my blue cloth mouse a new silky head!!! Which is SUCH a relief! After I gnawed through its ears to its fluffy innards, I was afraid it was the end for poor blue mousie... But Mom came to the rescue! I sat on her lap overseeing all repairs to my beloved friend, and ran off with him afterward for a good licking and cuddling. It's good to have a Mom.
