Inspired by my love of baseball, I wrote my friends a song:
Take me out to the birdhouse
Take me out to the yard
Hang me some bird seed and suet bricks
I don’t care if the birds fly real quick
So let’s root, root, root for the kitty
If I don’t eat it’s a shame
For it’s one, two, three bites I’m done with the free bird buffet!!
Thank you!! (takes a bow)

Let's Play Spring Tag!
April 4rd 2013
My Friend Minuette tagged me: ~ I must name five things I like about Spring and then I will tag some other furfriends.
Here are some of the things I like about Spring:
1) Outdoor Enclosure. Mommy lets Marina and I go outside. We have a very large enclosure. I can lay on the patio or hide under the bridge.
2) Free Food. I love to watch all the pretty birdies, but I also love to EAT the pretty birdies. Please don't judge me. It's my feline instincts and I'm a hopeless slave to my instincs.
3) Fresh Air. I love the fresh air when mommy opens the windows. I can hiss at the cats walking by and watch the children play.
4) Warm weather. It feels good enough that I can spend hours outside.
5) Bugs and Frogs. I love to chase flies, moths, frogs, grasshoppers, and anything else that moves.
I am tagging:
1) Ben -- 200703
2) Gimli -- 100277
3) Shade -- 1197041
4) Mazie -- 976729
5) Mojo -- 1247595
If you're one of my friends, and don't see your name, feel free to join in: it was a tough decision to pick the five, so I leaned towards those with more current diaries--so they wouldn't resent the need to write again--plus angels have Spring year-round!
In addition, anyone who wants to play is welcome--I love finding out more about all of you!

The vet called Mommy today with the results of my allergy testing. When the vet started reading off the list, mommy started laughing. Can you believe that??
Here's everything I'm allergic to that they tested for:
Orchard grass, Fescue grass, Bermuda grass, Ryegrass, Ragweed, Pigweed/Careless weed, Lamb’s Quarters, English Plantain, Waterhemp, Box Elder/Maple, Oak, Elm, Pecan/Hickory, Cladosporium (fungus), Penicillium (fungus), Rhizopus (fungus), Stemphylium (fungus), Candida Albicans (fungus), Nigrospora (fungus), Phoma (fungus), Dog Hair, Cockroachs, Tobacco Smoke, Pork, Venison, EGGS, Corn, White Potato, Flax Seed, Tuna, Cod, Flounder, Haddock, Shrimp, Human hair/dander
Mommy has to change my food, change my kitty litter and she said in a couple of weeks I will start getting two allergy shots b/c I'm allergic to so much stuff.
Mommy said the absurd thing is I'm allergic to her. The vet has never heard of that before. She was wondering why it was even on the form until today. Mommy said they all laughed about it and said leave it to us. This wouldn't happen to anyone else. The good thing is, when I start taking these shots, I should start to feel better and maybe I won't be allergic to mommy anymore.
I'm still going to snuggle with her at night. That's my favorite part of the day.

What a great surprise to wake up and find out I'm Cat of the Day! Thank you, Catster! Thanks to all my friends for the wonderful gifts. Thanks to the kitties who have asked to be friends with me. I'm honored. I have a feeling this is going to be a wonderful day!

I get to sleep in the bed with mommy. Marina has to sleep in the living room because she likes to play in the middle of the night. After mommy wakes up, she will let Marina into the bedroom to give morning cuddles.
Lately, Marina has been getting on my nerves. She's always trying to steal my resting place, especially if it's near mommy. This morning, like so many other mornings, Marina came into the bedroom and started fighting with me until I left. Then she plopped herself down in MY spot!!
I wasn't going to let Marina have the last laugh today. I got her sparkle ball, which I hate to play with, and brought it to mommy's bed. Marina started chasing it around the house, and I reclaimed my spot on the bed.
Who said cats aren't smart? ;-)

I found out after looking in my mailbox that I've been tagged by Penelope!
I've been tagged in a new game! List 5 of the most annoying things your humans can do, then tag 5 friends to do the same and put it in their diaries.
1) Two words: Ear drops
2) Two more words: liquid antibiotics.
3) Mommy won't let me go outside and catch birds when I want to.
4) Going to the Vet. Who really likes to be poked and prodded by a virtual stranger?
5) I hate it when mommy tries to pet me after we get up. I need a little alone time to wake up.
Now who shall I tag?
You can also play if you read this diary! The fun part is getting to choose 5 more kitties to tag!

Today I caught a female Eastern Bluebird. That's what the internet said it was. I brought it in the house when mommy was preparing dinner. I let it go in the living room and it tried to fly away. I jumped up and grabbed it. Mommy opened the back door and tried to coax me outside. It was a present for her so I dropped it in the kitchen. The bird just laid there. Mommy picked it up with a kitchen towel and took it outside. It flew up on top of the fence. Mommy told me it wouldn't make it. It fell into the yard and I swooped it up. I tried to take it back into the house but mommy shut the door. I finished the bird off then had fun playing with it. Mommy felt so bad for the bird but I told her it was nature. She said nature is fine but do I have to be the huntress? Can't I just enjoy the birds from a distance? I told her I am cat. Cat must hunt. Sorry birds.

Mommy's friend, Jill, and her family came to visit. Many of you know Jill. She's Truman's mommy. Jill is very nice. So it her husband Dale. Addie is two. Do you know what two-year-old's are? Loud and scary. For three days all I heard was "kiki." Thankfully she also knew what "nigh nigh" was. When I would run away she would say "kiki nigh nigh" and she would mostly leave me alone.
I've never seen a human that small before. And I've never seen a human that loud before. Mommy assures me she is a good kid and will be easier to deal with and bigger next time she visits.

Tonight mommy did the worst thing in the world a mommy can do to a kitty. It was even worse than the v-e-t. She gave me a B-A-T-H! She said I got stinky when I was going potty. I think if she had given me five minutes, I could have given myself a proper kitty bath. I was yowling at the top of my lungs for mommy to stop. Even Marina tried to come to my rescue but the door was closed. After the bath, mommy turned on the space heater so I could stay warm while I dried off. Marina tried to help dry me off too. After the bath, mommy gave me my nummy medicine but I bit into it wrong and tasted the icky medicine hidden inside. My mouth started foaming a bit. I couldn't even wash it down with the good treats for the longest time. Mommy felt bad then. Good. Maybe she will think twice before giving me a bath again!

Hi everyone! Last night I put mommy through her paces again. It has been three months since I peed on her bed but I thought she needed a refresher course on how to deal with these things. I'll let mommy tell you the story from her point of view. I think it will sound better coming from the "victim" in this case. mol
Tosca's mommy here. As most of you know, Tosca has been peeing on my bed since I got her as a baby. It isn't medical, it's behavioral. I've been so proud of Tosca for not peeing in my bed for three solid months. That's a great effort for her, almost a record. Last week she started scratching on the bed so I felt she was getting close to feeling the need to pee on the bed again. Last night she finally "did it."
I woke up at 12:45 and rolled over into a wet spot. She has NEVER peed in the middle of the night before. I jump out of bed and strip off the top covers. On my way back to the side I was sleeping on I keep stepping in wetness. I felt so bad for her. I assumed she had started peeing and got interrupted so she jumped down and couldn’t hold it and piddled all across the floor. I looked at the bed and thankfully I woke up before I had to strip off the bottom linens.
I grab one of the already wet blankets and clean up the floor in the bedroom. I gather the blankets to put in the washer. As I’m doing that I find her mouse in the wet bed linens. I thought this is great. She’s peed on her mouse too. Now I’m going to have to throw it out. I sniffed it to make sure. It didn’t smell but urine doesn’t always smell. I throw everything in the washer, including the mouse. These mice are her favorites and very hard to find so I don’t want to lose one if I don’t have to.
On my way back to the bedroom I step in another spot. I grab a towel that was right outside the laundry room and wipe that up and look for more spots. There are a couple more that continue toward the kitchen. I turn on the lights to make sure I didn’t miss anything. I keep wiping and wiping….all the way to the water bowl.
That little stinker was playing with her mouse in the water bowel and brought it to bed with her. All the water that had absorbed into it dripped all the way from the kitchen then soaked through the bed linens. She didn’t pee in the bed at all.
I stayed up long enough to make sure they blankets in the washer weren’t lopsided while spinning. I grabbed my thin little fuzzy blanket and went back to bed by 1:00. I froze the rest of the night but I was also quite proud of my baby for not peeing in the bed.
