Bonk the Glass Game

Dear Diary,

I invented a simple new game called "Bonk the Glass". Since I play it by myself you can say it's a solitaire game. All you need to play this game is a glass-top table and it works best if you have some sort of ID tag. The heavier tags or multiple tags are the most effective and get you the most attention.

The first thing I do is jump up on the glass-top coffee table. You can stand or sit but I prefer to sit. I look down and admire the reflection I see in the glass, and for some reason the image I always see looks just like me!! It is just so amazing that I have to take a closer look and "bonk" the glass with my face and my tag. After the first couple of bonks I usually have a captive audience consisting of kitties, doggies, and humans. So, in between each "bonk" I lick myself a few times to look cool for my audience. I usually do this for about a minute straight, bonking and grooming, bonking and grooming, and would say I can do about 20 bonks and 60 licks a minute!

The best part of this game is that I always win, since I'm the only one in the family who knows how to play. Now, if only I can get a treat for every bonk.......

New Kids on the Block

Dear Diary,

We've had new neighbors across the street for a little while now and they have three outdoor cats. They're a good looking trio, too! We've been taking turns watching them from the windows as they strut around and sprawl out on sidewalks. They even lie in the middle of the street sometimes, though they seem to know they should move when they see or hear a car coming. Good thing we don't get alot of traffic. Sometimes when mom is out front gardening or talking with a neighbor, they go up to her for some attention and she gives it to them, of course. We've noticed that their owners leave food outside for them and they have regular food parties with other strange cats, but we haven't been invited yet.

I had my annual physical the other day and the vet said I've gained a half pound since last year and that I need to go on a diet because of my young age. I already eat low-cal food and now they want to manage my portions! Let me tell you, I screamed all the way to the vet's office, during my exam, and all the way home! There was another cat in the waiting room who screamed like me so we had an opera thing going.

Well, I'd sure like to know if my new neighbors have to eat low-cal food, so I think it's time to pull out the recipe book and bake them a catnip pie and introduce myself. Something tells me I'll be screaming more after I find out what they're eating!

Meows,

Milo

 

The Magnificent Seven

Dear Diary,

Well, what can I say? The last time I wrote in my diary I talked about five of us, but now there are seven, with the addition of Reebok and Nike! I must say it was quite a surprise to all of us, but we have to admit they are very cute and sweet. They've already discovered they can come to me for kitty kisses and that I'll help them clean the spots they can't reach themselves. Mom and dad haven't had kittens this young join the family since they got me, and definitely not two at the same time! Together we will defend our home, love each other, and bring smiles to our mom and dad!

It's time for me to go teach them how to write their first diary entries so I'll say goodbye until next time!

Food and more food,

Milo

 

Five's a Crowd?

Dear Diary,

I do hope my feline friends and their humans had a wonderful Easter! Lucky me, I got to wear the bunny ears this year, but so did my dog brothers! As soon as mom finished taking my photo, I went hip-hoppin' away!!!

Well, with the addition of my new baby sister Pebbles, there are now five of us! She doesn't require my grooming skills much, but every now and then she brushes by and catches a couple of good licks from me. I was sort of hoping for a long-haired beauty so we'd have something to talk about, but at least she has my colors. My guess is that mom and dad prefers that I stand out from the rest......yeah, that must be it.

You should hear my mom and dad now just before they leave the house. They want to know where each of us are so they practice counting. If they just shook the food container or said the word "chicken" we'd all come running and they could save themselves a few steps! I need to work on my training methods!!

Is five a crowd? Nah, not really. There's hardly a noticeable difference as everyone is still making happy sounds around the house and sleepy soundly. Besides, it also means more toys, more treats, and more food for me to steal!!

Furry head butts,

Milo

 

More Job Responsibilities

Dear Diary,

Mom and dad must think I'm not busy enough because they brought a kitten named Riley home for me to take care of. Now I have to groom him too! They need to increase my food with all the overtime I'm putting in.

Sometimes I pin Sofie and Riley for no particular reason and scold them. You know how the young ones are--you have to train them early so they don't grow up to be unruly! Mercy still tries to act like I need to be trained sometimes when she takes a flying leap and pounces on me out of nowhere--she is such a tomboy! People think she's a boy and I'm a girl---maybe I should get a haircut.

The truth is, I love my sisters and brother, and they all know it. They come to me when they need someone to cuddle with and I always throw in a few licks.

I guess I better go now....my catnip break is over with.

The Life of a Lover Boy

Dear Diary,

We have a new baby sister named Sofie! When I first saw her a month ago, she was laying in her pink girlie bed. I sensed that maybe she was a little bit nervous so, staying true to my character, I showered her with kisses to let her know that everything was going to be okay. All I heard from my mom was "Awwwwwwww!!!" After that, mom gave me a big hug, lots of kisses, told me I was such a sweet boy, and then bragged about me to my dad!

Sofie shared her upper respiratory infection with us and got mom and dad worried, so we all had to go see our vet to make sure it wasn't something else. It wasn't, and the good docotor said we would all be fine in a matter of time. We got the royal treatment at home afterwards when mom and dad put us in their bathroom and created a sauna environment to help us breathe better. We are all feeling great now but there sure was alot of sneezing going on for awhile!!! Aaaaaahchoo!! Aaaaaaahchoo!! My cute little nose turned red.

I know it sounds like all I do is eat, but I do run around and play! Really! Just today, I was wrestling with Mercy, chasing the light from the laser pen, chasing Sofie up the cat tree, and diving under the rug! Plus, I have to groom everyone so that takes up alot of my time, you know. Mom just thinks I usually end up looking like one big white blob when she takes photos of me playing. Whatever!

Well, that's all I have to write about tonight. I have to get back to giving love to everybody in the house and then take another nap, but not before I grab a snack.

Hugs and kisses,

Milo

Dear Diary,

This morning when we went outside there was alot of morning dew on that temporary plastic fencing they put up around the new grass, so I had a good time licking and licking some of it.

During the day, Mercy likes to hog the tall cat tree so sometimes I try to sneak up there but when I do, she climbs on the very top and bats at me. She never hisses at me because she really loves me, but she knows I'll get off! Then, I usually retreat to the cat condo in the den. When I was little, I use to hang onto Mercy's neck while playing and she use to throw me down, but now that I weigh more than her, we pretty much take turns playing "bottom" cat. If it weren't for her I'd probably not get much exercise, but it doesn't take much of a workout to make me hungry!

I don't sleep on mom and dad's bed at night like Mercy does, but it doesn't mean I'm not a mushy boy! I guess it's Mercy's nightime spot and I don't like any human legs accidentally kicking me, so I'm usually on the cat condo in their bedroom or on the chaise with "my" special blankie.

Everyone is winding down now for the night so I guess I will too.

Until next time...Milo

 

The New Backyard

Dear Diary,

We did get to go out to the backyard before it got dark last night as well as several times today. They have this weird temporary fencing up around the grass area right now mainly to keep the dogs off of it. I tried to stick my paws under it to see if I could push it aside but it was too secure. Oh well, I just made my way to other areas where there is bark and did my business--I'm not shy about those things! It's been extremely hot out here the past week or so, so I don't like to stay outside for very long and run back in the house so I can cool off! Dad was watching football today so all this loud noise was coming out of that big hole on his face. Other than running around the house with Mercy a few times today, napping, and eating, not much else to report.

Time to go to sleep now....Milo

 

Remembering September 11th, 2001

Dear Diary,

Like the good cats we are, we said a prayer for those who lost their lives on September 11th, 2001. We also thought about their families and friends and our canine buddies who helped with the rescue and search efforts. Other than that, we've been stuck in the house all day since the landscaper was putting the new sod in, but I guess he's done now because I saw dad hand him a little piece of paper that he could have crumpled up and given to me instead! No more big outdoor litter box for me, so I guess I'll use the bark when I'm out there. Sigh. We're waiting to be let outside so we can check out the new digs so I have to go give a nudge and big meow to mom and dad.

Licks.....Milo

 

Reflections of the Day

Dear Diary,

Today we got wet food because Mercy was "Cat of the Day", and you know how I like to eat! But, honestly, I don't really care if I get it regularly or not because either way, they keep filling up my food bowl (or pretend to). Our backyard is being re-landscaped and since the grass won't be put in until tomorrow, the yard is one big litter box! Woohoo!! So, even though I have a nice litter box in the house, it's been fun using the new one! I must be a king because the dogs dig my holes and clean up after me. The neighbors really like it too because now even "they" know when I'm getting ready to go poop!

Gots to go now......Milo
