In Which I Am Tagged

My friend Won Ton, who has a very interesting diary, tagged me. So here goes!

OK - Here are the rules of the game! Each player starts with seven random facts
about themselves. Cats who are tagged need to post in their Diary the rules &
their 7 pawsome facts. Then choose 7 cats to tag and list their names.

Don’t forget to purr them a pmail that they have been tagged and to read your
Diary or send them a fun Rosette announcing they've been Tagged!

1. I am very patient...I never bug mommy to feed me...then again, Gromit bugs her enough for us both.

2. Unfortunately, I got a couple of ticks on my neck a couple of summers ago. Where they got pulled off, my fur grew in white!

3. I love going out on our enclosed front porch! In the mornings I will cry in front of the door until I get let out.

4. I go CRAZY for feathers!

5. I love to snuggle with my daddy when he's sleeping.

6. I got asked to be in my pal Bear's wedding! I'm so excited!

7. I got named BCCP Cat of the Week this week and I am SO thrilled. I never had such an honor before!

Black Cats Crossing Our Paths named humble me its Cat Of The Day! I'm sooo happy and my mommy is proud! Can't wait to tell daddy!

My friend Snowy invited me to join this group a while back, and I was thinking of a surprise for her anyway! I'll post it here for all after I give it to her.


In Which I Finally Go Exploring!!!

Yes, it finally happened! I escaped and got to go roam outside ALL BY MYSELF! Finally, the ability to explore on my own, in the lovely river valley named for my brave namesake, Henry Hudson.

Mommy went to visit Auntie Tori and Auntie Beth this weekend. Daddy was doing yardwork and didn't know the latch on the screen door in back was broken. Upon testing it, I realized I could GET OUT!

Gromit was somewhere time to get him. Besides, he's not an explorer, he's an inventor and defender-of-the-house-against-birdies. I went out! Oh sweet freedom! The open air on my face! The grass before me! The chipmunks romping around unaware of the danger lurking in ME!

I roamed the yard and chased the chipmunks and even descended the forbidden hill into the woods. Oh, the sights and sounds and smells! I revelled in them. I know how Henry Hudson felt setting sail for the New World! But always a wise explorer I kept track of where I was and did not get lost.

I heard daddy tell mommy later what happened...he wanted to give us treats and only Gromit came running. He couldn't find me! Then he realized the back door was open and came out in the yard to look for me.

I heard him calling and I knew he would be worried about me. So I came back. And then demanded lots of cuddling and attention as a reward for being such a good boy and coming when called. But I know the truth...exploring is nice. Home is better.


In Which I Undergo a Torturous Experience

The same torturous experience many kitties go through every day...the VET! Yes, it was time for yearly boosters and checkups. I'm still weighing in at a big 16 lbs! Dr. Zimmerman said I am a big handsome boy! Everyone at our vet's office is SO nice, but I can't help it, I hate going there and I am scared and unhappy. But they understand, and don't take it personally.

My friend Suzanne was there, who gave me a bath when I was a tiny kitten (I wrote about that in a previous diary entry) and I had terrible fleas. She always talks to me when I'm there. She said I was so worn out from all those fleas back then that I just flopped down and let her wash me all off.

I may have yeast infections in my ears...I also had bad ear mites as a kitten and now my ears produce too much wax. Mommy will have to wash them for me sometimes.

In other news, I am still being mocked by the chipmunks who scamper about just of reach in the yard. If I got out, they would not be so sanguine.


In Which I Weather a Storm!

There was a loud storm Friday night. But that's not what I'm referring to. We had strange people here over the weekend. Usually I'm not too afraid of strangers, but this weekend I mystified mommy and daddy by having a total contrary fit and running away from everyone. They were daddy's mommy and daddy, and I hear they like kitties, but I just didn't feel like being available, so I spent a lot of time in the basement, or under the quilt.

They appear to be gone now. I hope there's no one else around for a while.

Maya tagged me with the "seven random facts"

1. Mommy says the white spot on my tummy looks like a heart when I lie on my side, but daddy says it looks like a bat when I'm on my back.

2. I don't lick, but I show affection with "nosey kisses". Mommy says they are the sweetest nosey kisses in the world.

3. When I was a kitten I would do backflips playing with the feather wand.

4. I am a brave explorer, but afraid of the vacuum cleaner.

5. I don't mind water as much as most kitties, I like to play with it and I have jumped in the shower with mommy and daddy.

6. I have a high pitched meow which mommy says is very musical and pretty.

7. I like to burrow under the quilt on the big bed to sleep.

In Which I Receive Numerous Compliments

Wow! I feel so pawpular! First of all thanks to Ellie Belle, who is a beyootiful little Meezer mix, for giving me a star! I have to admit, I was a little jealous that Gromit had one and I didn't! But now I have my very own.

And what a nice reception I got from Black Cats Crossing Our Path. Snowy has been pawmailing me all the way from South Africa, which makes me feel SO cosmopolitan. And I had no idea so many people would find my white patches smoochable! I am a very mellow kitty and let mommy pick me up and cradle me belly up, so she has passed on everyone's smooches. She also gives me "belly raspberries" sometimes, which generally make me confused.

There's a little chipmunk outside the front door who is taunting me! He pops out of his hole and walks around while I am looking out the front door. OOOh, I wish I could get out and chase him! But mommy and daddy insist on keeping the little critters safe from us. Humans are so sentimental.

Gotta go...time for treats!


In Which I Receive Numerous Invitations

This morning mommy was petting me and she didn't know why I kept meowing at her! It was because I KNEW that I was invited to join TWO catster groups! Purrz for Palz and Black Cats Crossing Our my new bud Snowy (who is another lovely black kitty) had sent me a Rosette.

But mommy didn't understand me, so she didn't know until she checked her email how pawpular I have become. And now I have some new friends who are on a whole different continent! Snowy and his family are in South Africa! Wow! But as I'm named after a world explorer, it's only fitting, right?

It's getting so nice and warm here! We can go on the sun porch and the windows are open and sooo many sunny spots. But it's still chilly enough at night to make us want to snuggle with mommy and daddy.


In Which I Am Trapped!

Last night Mommy got the little sweeper out of the coat closet to clean up around our litter box, and she left the door open. Naturally I had to explore the area...hello, my name is HUDSON. But because of my lovely black coat, she didn't see me in there when she put the sweeper back. Oooh noes! She shut the door and there I was in the coat closet in the dark.

But intrepid soul that I am, I didn't panic! I finished my investigation and made enough noise to attract the attention of my brother Gromit. When Mommy saw him scratching at the door and meowing, she caught on fast and let me out. This is why you always need someone to spot for you, fellow kitties. We all need someone to have our back.
