Grandma stayed at our house fur Christmas... that wasn't sickening. We kind of like grandma effur since she got her own kitties (Uncle Felix and Aunt Daisy) and learned how to properly appreciate us.
Lots of people filled the house on Christmas day...that wasn't sickening. Even though at least half of them were those noisy short humans who scare us! We stayed hidden while they were here!
Except fur when daddy (who earlier in the day had said: "I don't have cats! Granny Julia has cats!") carried Emily through the crowded room, sheltering her in his shirt and said defensively: "She looked like she had to go potty, but she was scared to come through here!" And although that was kinda sickly sweet, it wasn't sickening...
After all the guests, except grandma, who was staying here, had left, I got Christmas turkey!! And that wasn't sickening at all! Especially since I got a double helping because Emily wouldn't eat hers!
But something about Christmas was sickening because mommy got sick that night and has been sick effur since. :~( She's spent a lot of time since Friday night either in the bathroom, in bed or on the couch. But I have been such a good nurse that grandma called me a "guardian angel" and went on and on about what a good job I was doing of watching over mommy! :~)
We hope your Christmases weren't sickening! We are going to try to catch up on all your diaries tonight. But I may have to let mommy quit early... 'cause she's kinda green... and green is not a good color fur her! MOL!
off to read diaries purrs,

The holiday season is upon us! And other things as well. Emily and I have our vet appt. fur a full work up on Monday. Mommy is having an MRI/MRA of her head and neck on Tuesday (they are looking fur signs of an actual brain... MOL!). Mommy has to drive out of town to pick up grandma on Wednesday. And Grandma will be staying with us through Sunday when mommy has to drive her back to the airport two hours away. And Friday mommy is going to try to cook a Christmas dinner fur 13 people (this is not something that is in mommy's repertoire; she is a t.v. dinner and take out kinda gal!).
So I know we WILL fall behind on reading diaries and keeping up with groups. :~( We hope that all of you, our furriends, and your humans, stay out of trouble and stay safe and warm and happy and have a wonderful Holiday season!
We will be on sporadically. And we will post the news of our check ups when we have it.

This entry is about my "niece" named Nick Nack. She was named after a James Bond character. She is the kitty of my mommy's stepdaughter and daddy's daughter. Mommy's stepdaughter is the one who has said she would care fur us if something should happen to mommy and daddy.
Nick Nack is a petite little black and white girl. She lives with her mommy and daddy and two skin sisters (one of them just born Nov. 4th!) and a little rat dog named Bonita. Bonita is a miniature Yorkshire Terrier. Mommy's stepdaughter doesn't like it when mommy calls her a "rat" and pretends to look fur the wind-up key on her side that makes her run! MOL!
When mommy and daddy went to see the new skin sister last Sunday mommy caught Nick Nack on video showing Bonita who is the boss! Here is the video if you are interested: Nick Nack & Bonita
I know, I know... Emily and I write about a lot of relative kitties who aren't on Catster. But that is just because we love ALL kitties!

Our new Hammacher Schlemmer fountain arrived! Sweet Rocky Ann got one of these fountains and wrote about it in her diary! We carefully read her reviews and then instructed our mommy to get us one too!
We had been missing our old fountain that mommy was neffur very good at keeping clean. :~( But this fountain is ceramic and it doesn't have a big ol' tank with lots of weird nooks and crannies that mommy had to clean with a little bottle brush like our old fountain did. :~)
We like the new fountain lots! You can see pictures of me drinking from it on my page. And on Emily's page you can see where she was impatiently waiting for our servant... um... I mean mommy... to get it put together! The little "warning" on the instructions that said it might take your cats a while to use it made mommy LOL because, as with our old fountain whenever mommy washed it and refilled it, we were both drinking out of it as she tried to fill it up!
*happy dances over new fountain*
Now, on a sour note: How come I have to go to the vet because Sissy is having some head trembles??? Does that seem fair to you? Well it sure doesn't to me! But is looks like sis and I both have an appointment on Monday @ 11:00 fur "the works." :~(
Ah well... as Scarlett O'Hara used to say... I won't think about that today, I'll think about that tomorrow!

Some really cool cats asked me and my furmily to be their furriends the other day and I want to introduce them to my other furriends! Wilbert, Murray and the cute baby of the furmily, Lenore, just joined Catster on November 30th! They live in Ohio (which is where my mommy grew up!) and they have lots of adorable pictures on their pages and they write entertaining diaries! I'm sure they'd like to meet lots of you cool cats! So I hope you'll head over and check out their pages and make furriends. :~)

My daddy was trying to get me to play with the traveling bbs so he got out my Cat Dancer toy that my dear furriend Arnold P. sent me last year. I DID play with the Cat Dancer, but I ignored the bbs! MOL!
Mommy made the video slo-mo so you could see my "moves" better... and yes, because mommy just figure out how to do the slo-mo on the videos! MOL! (I think mommy is in permanent slo-mo!).
So here's the Video
And, yes, we DO live in a cave! All our videos are soooo dark! But hey, fewer lights are good fur the planet huh? Go green!

I've been tagged by my purrty furiend, Camille Rose:
1. Do you believe in Santa Paws? If not, why?
Answer: Um… I dunno...
2. Have you been naughty or nice?
Answer: I'm purrty nice. Even when I'm a little naughty it just makes mommy smile so she thinks that is nice too!
3. What would you like Santa Paws to bring you?
4. What is your favorite Christmas carol?
Answer: Well mommy put "Good King Wenceslas" on my page because grandpa, her daddy, sings it a lot at Christmas.
5. What is your favorite Christmas Movie?
Answer: I'm not a big fan of movies or t.v. I do perk up my ears and watch some nature shows… I think mommy likes some movie called: "It's a Wonderful Life." She believes in the theme of that movie that humans never realize the impact they have on the lives of other humans by the little effurryday things they do.
I'm not gonna tag anycat. But if anycat who reads my diary would like to play they can consider themselves tagged!
P.S. Mommy has picked up a nasty computer virus so our participation online might be sketchy fur a while…

Fur reasons known only to mommy (and a few close furriends) she decided to "sing" the Star Spangled Banner tonight. Emily and I, understandably thinking that she was howling in pain, came running to her aid! Unfortunately, in our anxiety and concern a little altercation broke out. Here is the video: Video
I thought I nailed the role of King George, III! :~)

I was tagged by my beautiful furriend, Shelley Sue to play the "2009 Get to Know your Pals" Tag game! Sorry Shelley Sue that it took me so long to get around to playing.

6. What is your favorite toy? I don't play often. But I will swing a paw or two at my Cat Dancer
7. When is your birthday? Mommy only knows it is in January. She picked January 8th because that is the anniversary of when we joined Catster and it's probably purrty close to our real birthday (Emily and I are littermates) so 1/8/96

Tonight Emily and I heard the garage door open... the scary lady who has been feeding us doesn't come in that way! So we cautiously approached the kitchen... and there they were!! Mommy and daddy are home!
Mommy immediately sat down on the floor and held out her hand and we both gave it a good sniffing, just to be sure you know. But it really was her!
We got some fresh ice water and lots of kisses and petting and snuggles and we both talked to them to tell them they should never ever ever leave us alone like that again!! It felt like furrever!
Tomorrow I'm going to try to give them the cold shoulder... maybe...but tonight? I'm just happy my pawrents are home again!
