*zzzzoooooooooommmmsss over in the Souped Up Pumpkin Mobile* What a furtastic surprise to wake up to find this purrfectly wonderful honor! Thank you HQ for honoring me (cutest me!) as today's COTD! This is my family's very first COTD honor and we are THRILLED!

Although my page says I'm from the Bay Area, CA, we aren't quite there yet. We are moving across the country in less than a month from Minnesota to California, and mom is just so excited that she couldn't wait to put that on our pages! *giggles* Humans! They are so strange... Anyhoo, we have a big adventure coming up, for we'll be driving almost 2000 miles. Mom had better pack up ALL of my Q-Tips.

*gives mom a "look"*

I made mom get to work extra early today so that I could write my thank you's and appreciation in my diary. She is stuck with a "visitruder" at work for the next three weeks and has no space or time to herself, being that she is presently training her replacement there. Like I said before... "HUMANS"! Don't they understand that Catster is far more important??

So because her space is so painfully invaded, I'm jumping onto Catster really quickly to express my gratitude for all of the kind notes and gifts that my friends have been sending. I promise that I'll respond to all of you when I can!

My goodest friend SMOKEY had a great suggestion the other day, and that was to have mom fill her pockets with stinky blue cheese and sardines in order to drive the visitruder out. MOL MOL MOL!

On an very happy note regarding my little sisfur Oreo, she is continuing to recover VERY nicely following her surgery for removing those bad stones from her bladder. She is blowing kisses to all of her friends and waving like mad, still showing off her pink shaved tummy (slathered with SPF 30 of course)

We love you all, thank you all, and thank you HQ for bringing a bright spot to our very stressed lives right now!

Gotta run for now before the visitruder gets here... *hits the gas on the Pumpkin Mobile and zzzooooooooooms off, flinging glitter encrusted celebratory Q-Tips everywhere*

Love and Q-Tips!

Lily (& the Kalifornia Krew & our frazzled typist too)


Lots and lots of thank you's to get out!

I have many many thank you notes to write for the overflowing of love, gifts, messages and happiness shared with me for my Cat of the Day honor on Tuesday!

I am writing briefly in my diary in the hope that you'll read that I'll be in touch with each and every one of you very soon; mom has this "visitruder" issue at work where she's training a new person in and has no space. So she can't play on Catster like normal. *giggles*

I love all of you so much; you are as special to me as you've made me feel.

Love and Q-Tips,


I am a Godmommy!

We are moving across the country!

Please furgive the redundancy of all of our diary entries; the big day has finally arrived, the day my family has been preparing for over the last 9 months. We are going to start our drive across the country very early tomorrow morning, Monday 10/18!

Things have been slowly disappearing from our house, and now the house is completely empty except for our kitty things and a few mundane human things. Well, kitty things take priority, right?? At first we were confused, a little scared and hesitant to venture about, now we’re having a ball, racing about the house and playing.

We will be driving 2000 miles from Minneapolis to San Francisco and it will take 3 full days of driving. Mom and dad will be driving all 7 of us kitties and our doggie sisfur Berkeley in the huge “van conversion” MOL MOL MOL which we’ve dubbed “The Ark”. We have faith in the Ark bringing us safely home, and we have a crew of Angel Kitties flying high above us, guiding us safely home. To all of our angel friends, thank you for guiding us and surrounding us with the safety and peace of mind that we need. Dad spent lots of money on the van to be sure it is in tip top shape for our trip, and mom got each of us our own carrier so that there is no possibility of any of us escaping. The house is full of Feliway, and catnip and we’ve had Rescue Remedy put in our water as calming agents.

Mom even had a Reiki session done for us last night, to bathe us in healing energy and calmness. During the session, we were all very relaxed, purring and snoozing. We will do what we can to make this as easy as possible.

We will be camping out in the van, all of us together for 2 nights. *giggles* we thought it would be a challenge to sneak 7 cats and a dog into a motel… MOL! The idea of camping at KOA campgrounds offers some excitement and fun to the trip. We should be arriving on 10/20.

I’m afurraid my family and I will be going silent for a bit. To those that have our email and cell, we sure would love to hear from you, and mom will do her best to update you.

To all who have offered your purrs and prayers, we are sincerely grateful. My family and I love you all! We will see you on the other side, ready to celebrate and have fun again!

oh..... I have Q-Tips already stashed EVERYWHERE in the van, mom doesn't know it yet. Mahahahaha!

Love, Lily & the Kalifurnia Krew

My silly sisfur Oreo just received an anonymouse POTP charm to help keep her stones away, and now I DID TOO!

Sweet anonymous gift giver, who are you???!! We want to thank you in purrson!

I have had litter box issues, yes, BUT! Mom has been giving me cranberry supplements every evening, along with a little glucosamine for pain management. Dear anonymous friend, I am feeling GOOD! (but... naughty always... *muffled giggles*)

Here is my secret message. If anyone can decode it, please paw mail me right away!

"A certain sister of yours was asking for some purrs for you.
She told some rather personal details about your litter box habits. We're hoping that was just a mild infection and not those icky stones. Power of the Paw and our Purrs too !"

SQUEEEE! I love love LOVE you, whoever you are!

*sits and waits with a huge oversized bouquet of electric blue sparkly Q-Tips for her good anonymous friend, anxiously awaiting him or her to reveal his or her identity, and to PLAY!*

Love love, LOVES!

**GLARES** at mom and sticks tongue out. MOL! Both of my pawrents seem to have 'lost it'.... Dad even called ME Oreo!! I am not the jiggly giggly tub of luv that she is. I am the Q-Tip Queen! Dad.... get your children straight, good grief.

What would I do without my wonderfur Catster friends! Thank you for making my day! It was 8 years ago today that mom spied the sign at the neighbors house that said 'free kittens'. I was a free kitten! She was riding her bike with her furless family, and they all stopped by to see cute me and my cute siblings. Well, all I did was bat my big baby blues at them and they fell in love. How could they not?! I was only 7 weeks old and mom scooped me up, held me in the palm of her hand and rode me to my new furever home on her bicycle! MeoWOW what a ride that was! Even though she furgot my gotcha day, I love her very, very much. And I love all of you very very much! Thank you for making my day so happy!

Lily, the Q-Tip Queen


My Secret Santa made my Christmas wish come true!

Dear Secret Santa:

Thank you for sending me the pretty acorn with the mysterious message. But, then, MeoWOW!! I got a beautiful diamond from you too, with a WONDERFUL message inside!

Ohh, happy excited purrs! You know who you are, you know who I am, but I have noooooo idea who you are!! I love not knowing, that makes the Secret Santa game such fun!

Well, whoever you are, I am so very appreciative of your sweet secret notes, but most of all for having made a donation to Blind Cat Rescue as my gift! I am such a lucky kitty. I have a warm loving home, loving pawrents, lots of brofurs and sisfurs, I have healthy meals every morning and every evening, I get to lay by the fire, I get to sleep in my Morgan's bed, I have loads of toys, I play play play like there is no tomorrow and I am healthy and happy.

For that my Christmas wish is to help a needy kitty, such as one in a shelter or one who needs help, such as a disabled kitty. That is my Christmas wish, and you granted it by donating to a wonderful shelter full of needy loving kitties!

Thank you, S.S.!

Let's help make all of our friends dreams come true... donate to a shelter, volunteer at a shelter, provide used blankets, towels and toys to the needy, stop to pet a homeless kitty or offer her a bowl of food and fresh water.... gosh! I could go on and on! It is just so easy to do!

Merry Happy Christmas and good Hannukah karma to all! And if it is Kwanzaa or Good Cat Saint's Day, celebrate in style! There is no greater reward than the gift of giving.

I beliEVE!


I don't fit!

Omicatness, I am looking back on my diary entries and the last time I wrote was nearly an entire year ago. And my photo op of cutest ME in my Famous Punkin was taken nearly... SEVEN years ago. Goodness my typist needs to get with it!

So we pulled out our Howloween decorations and imagine my delight and surprise when mom set out my Famous Punkin! Ohhh I was just beside myself with excitement. I wanted to hop right into it. But I couldn't. I don't fit any more!! I was able to get my head into it... (MOL) but that was about it. I then stuck my head into it and pushed as hard as I could, trying to get in... I only succeeded in pushing it across the kitchen floor. Mom was MOL MOL'ing at me. Hmmmmph. I will get that punkin yet. Meantime I think I'll un-decorate her decorations for thinking this is so funny.

*giggles and starts making baskets of orange Q-Tip bouquets for her friends*


I bet- I KNOW- you can help save a life by reading my diary!

Come on in everyone, welcome to my diary! I have not written in quite a while. The recent unfortunate events among friends has prompted me to help spread the word. I am the biggest talker in my family, so I purray my diary will get more hits.

I have many very special friends. ALL of my friends are special. Right now I have two VERY special friends fighting cancer. One of whom is my cousin SUGAR BEAR, who recently had successful surgery for breast cancer. Although her surgery was a success, she is by no means out of the woods as yet, and her loving family is diligently watching over her and all of her siblings for the rest of their lives. They have created a very special website called Sugar Rub. If you click on the name, you will be taken to the website! Here you will learn about feline and canine breast cancer and what you can do to detect it in time, educate yourself, and even donate toward research. Cats and dogs are just as susceptible as humans, and it is not a widely known fact. Let's spread the word! There are really fun Sugar Rub bracelets available from this great site too.

My other very special friend is my sisfur Oreo’s best friend, AGGIE. She was recently diagnosed with a a very large cancerous tumor behind her soft palate. Her vet didn't take a biopsy, she said she was afraid she would make matters worse, so she took a needle aspiration and they will wait and see what type of cancer it is. She said she hopes it's lymphoma because it responds well to radiation.


Doesn’t that sound horrible? Hoping for the best of a bad thing. This is why we need to fight and help find a cure for cancer so that our loved ones won’t have to go through such anguish and grief. We are purring and praying for all in need. I love you Sugar Bear and Aggie, I love you all! I beliEVE!

Prayer for the Animals
by Albert Schweitzer

Hear our humble prayer, O God, for our friends, the animals.
Especially for animals who are suffering; for any that are
hunted or lost or deserted or frightened or hungry;
for all that must be put to death.
We entreat for them all Thy mercy and pity,
and for those who deal with them, we ask a
a heart of compassion and gentle hands and kindly words.
Make us, ourselves, to be true friends to animals,
and so to share the blessings of the merciful.

My friend Emily tagged me today. Thank you, CUTEST Emily!! If you would like to play, copy the questions and put them in your diary with your answers, then tag some furiends!


1. Describe one thing your pet pawrent does that you think is REALLY CUTE.

*scratches head* well, I think I’M the one that is really cute MOL MOL!!! Okay, I’ll play the game. (glares at typist) Um, well, um… (I can’t think of anything) *giggles*
Oh, OKAY, mom. Sheesh!!! Mom plays pom poms with me and I love it. She throws the pom pom and I fetch, just like a doggie does. I run after it, skidding sideways on the floor, and carry it back to her in my mouth, dropping it at her feet.
There :) I did a good job at turning that back into how cute I am MOL MOL!

2. Describe one thing your pet pawrent does that you think is REALLY LAME.

Well now, HERE we are talking!!! Hummmm, boy the list is so long…. *glances sideways at mom who is glaring back at naughty daughter* Teeheehee. Well, she seems to think we all need to be on DIETS and doesn’t let us eat and eat and eat until we either harf or gain ginormous pounds. I mean, REALLY. If I’m a teensy bit, plump, then there is more of me to LOVE! I love you all!

Now I'm tagging 5 friends and hope they want to play!
