I would like to Thank you All for the pmails, comments and gifties, and my new friendships. I was surprised to wake up and see I was a DDP today.
Thank you Catster Diary Land.
It's 46 degrees today, should go up into the 50's. I sure hope so! The sun is in and out. I really hope it stays out. The windows are warmer that way. Not many birdies to watch today, Grammy saw the Hawk, sitting in our big maple tree. It was watching everything going on. Two of the squirrels did venture out in the open to get their peanuts, but quickly ran to cover in the neighbors bushes. One or two birdies came to the feeders, but didn't stay. The hawk sat still in the tree, just watching. Than one of those squirrels ran right up the maple tree and beside the hawk!!!!!! Grammy couldn't believe it! The hawk, just sat there....watching. Than he flew over to the neighors tree....and he's still there.....just watching.
Update on Cleo and Romeo. Cleo is eating well and doing well. She is playing and bathing everyone, who's dirty......
As for Romeo, he's still not eating....we have to force feed him.....he is so skinny....Grammy worries about him. We know his mouth is sore....but he has to eat something. He won't even drink milk on his own. The swelling has gone down. We have been putting ice on it from time to time...and he seems to enjoy that. Most of his days he is sleeping.....so we let him alone. The others seem to know he doesn't feel well....so they leave him alone too. We sure hope he soon starts eating on his own soon. Grammy says if he's not eating something on his own...buy tomorrow....he's going back to the vets. Let you know more tomorrow.
Hope everyone has a great day!

Today is a Busy Day!
It started early...I thought something was funny....
Meowmy was up early and dressed! She went in the basement and put two of our carriers on the kitchen floor...but .....she went back downstairs and...and she got two more carriers!!!!!
What's going on??? We never have the kitchen floor full of carriers. Than she got four harness and leashes out. Than four jackets and sweaters. What! Who! Where!
We didn't even get breakfast! What's going on!
Than Grammy came out and she was dressed, she even had her shoes on! We ask Grammy for some foods, but she said we have to wait! Than she started to look for.....Cleo. She put her harness on her, than her Minnie Mouse Jacket and lead. In the Carrier went Cleo. Than she got Francis....she put his sweater on him and tried to put him in the carrier, but Francis wasn't going in.....so Meowmy had to get him in. Than Grammy had to look for Romeo....she found him. She put his Shirt on him and in a carrier he went. Than of all the nerve....Grammy tried to pull me out of my house....Well I was having none of it. I planted my Legs straight and I wouldn't move. Grammy had my front and Meowmy pushed my backside. Finally they had me. Grammy put my hoodie on me and put me in a carrier too.! Than one by one we got put in the car. Boy it's cold outside today. Only 14 degrees! Boy did we all wake up! Meowmy put me, Cleo, and Romeo in the back seat and seat belted us in. But where is Francis? Grammy had to hold Francis and his carrier, cause the backseat ran out of room for him. Now we are all in the warm car. We are such good cats, we thought we would sing songs to Grammy and Meowmy. In fact we all did. All four of us, Grammy said we sang well. No one showed off we blended together. Finally the 15minute trip was over, we were at the vets. Francis was first one in the door, than Kibbles, Cleo and Romeo. Stephanie put us in the large front room. This room is great! It has two big windows. Plus a nice long bench to sit on. It also has a huge hutch type bookcase, that we love to climb on. Yes, we are allowed to. The exam table is cool too...if faces so you can see out the windows. We got to see all the big trucks and cars go up and down the road. We even watched the landscape people across the road. How exciting!!! Well the vet techs came in and took Cleo and Romoe in the back with them. You see they are getting dental work done today. So they didn't come home with us.
Than the vet tech came back to weight us and check our ears and eyes and combed us to see if we had fleas and that our fur was ok. I know she loves me best, cause she gave me extra petties!
Than Dr. Holland came in. She checked us over again and we got a shot and more petties. I gave her a small quite growl when she gave me my shot, but than I went back to watching things out the window. We were done. Now back in the carriers, it's time to go home. Since it was just me and Francis we didn't sing as much. We waited until we were almost home, than we sang a short song. We're home! Everyone was glad to see us, they smelled us and said Now can we Please have some breakfast!
Well got Chicken and Salmon. Yummy! Now we are resting. We do miss Cleo and Romeo, but we know they are coming back home later. Have a great day everyone!

Oh my goodness! I'm a DDP today!
Thank you all for the Gifties, Pmails, Comments and your friendships. My Friends are the bestest!
It's Windy! Windy! Windy! Today we are having Wind gusts up to 50-60 miles, and the temps are only in the 40's so far. Thank goodness the sun is shinning!
We are soaking up the sun coming in the windows and just being lazy today. So far things are quite on the home front. Guess we're to cold. We haven't seen many birdies today. I think the Wind blew them away!!!! All we see is leaves and paper blowing around. Hope you all have a Great Day!

Good news.....We still have some gold fish in the pond.
Grammy didn't see all of them...but she did see three. Two medium sized gold and her large white one. He's about 5 or 6 years old. So she's happier today.
Now for the weather report!
It is 70 degrees today, but cloudy and windy. Not as nice as yesterday, but better than that cold stuff! Almost all the snow is gone and we can see the shoots of the flowers coming up!
Grammy didn't open the window today, cause it's to cool, but she did open the porch. It's nice and warm and we can look out the windows there.
The Hawks must be flying around today, cause we haven't seen many birdies and only one of the squirrels. He didn't stay in the open to long. That usually means somethings on the hunt! Yes, we understand Hawks have to eat to, but we like our birdies and squirrels. The Hawks kind of scare us. To Big!!!!
Hope you all have a great day! See you tomorrow!

Good morning friends.
It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood...a beautiful day it is! It's in the 60's today and we have our window open and the porch. What a great day. I am enjoying just laying on the cat tree watching the squirrels run about and chasing each other. They are nuts!!! Speaking of nuts, our backyard looks like we are having a peanut hunt. I mean it! The squirrels hid them in the snow and now that it's melted. Nuts everywhere! MOL!
The birdies are happy too. They are singing and chirping. Grammy gots to go outside and see how her goldfish are. We sure hope they made it through this winter. She has had some of them for over 5 years, but this year she couldn't break the ice to give them fresh air. Plus there was so much snow on top of the ice. Well we'll know later today when she goes out. Meanwhile, I am just going to enjoy my day in the sunshine and maybe go on the porch while I can. Hope you all have a beautiful day in your neighborhood.
Update on Grammy's goldfish.
The ice is still about 2inches thick on most of the pond, but there is one spot where there is water. She moved some of the water plants and under them was one of her large gold fishies belly up. She didn't see any others, but she thinks she probably lost all of them. Time will tell when more of the ice melts and she can see more water. This was her pretty fan tailed fish. It was about 5-6 inches in length and about 3 inches tall, and a dark orange color with a fancy tail. She raised these fish from little feeder fish and carnival fish. So they were very small years ago. Thanks to our friends who have offered suggestions on keeping the water from freezing completely, but where we live about the only thing we know to work is electric heaters, and we don't use them. We have had a fish pond for over 20 years and you expect to loose some, but you hate to loose those large ones. Hopefully we still have some and they have babies. We cats love it when they have little ones. Lots to watch swim.

Love is in the Air!
It's a beautiful day here in Maryland! It's a day full of Love, Sunshine and warmer temps. It's in the mid 40's already!
The snow is melting and the grass is showing....be careful where you walk, there's lots of mud too. Today is Valentines Day and I would like to wish all my friends to have a great day.
Try not to break to many hearts.....
Grammy already gave us Lovins, Hugs, Kisses and Breakfast! We had Turkey and Gravy. My favorite. I cleaned my bowl, and checked all the empty bowls for extra lickins! This is my kind of day. Turkey, Love, and Peace in the house! Today everyone is on their best behavior...so far! It must be all the Love in the Air.
Wishing you all a Happy Valentine Day!

Hi to all you furries in Catster Land. Well today is Friday and it's another great day!
Grammy got ups extra early today, she couldn't sleep. Romeo kept going into see her, so she got up! Glad she did! Romeo was hungry so she fixed his and Taters soupy dishes, and we all gots extra dry and some of the lickins from their left overs. Yum! Yum! Than later when meowmy got up we got our wet foods. After our regular feeding we even gots special treats. Wow! This day is starting out great!
Our meowmy has to go to work today, we hate it when she gets her shoes on in morning. We know something is up!
Grammy is still learning the feel of the laptop! MOL! MOL! So I appolize for any mistakes. She knows her way around computers, but this is not hers, it's meowmy and she is kind of scared she'll mess it up!
Update on Romeo and Cleo. They went to the vets yesterday and had blood work done for their dental work later this month. Cleo is just having a cleaning, but Romeo needs to have a back tooth pulled. We are making his wet food soupy so he doesn't have to bit down on large pieces. Grammy even adds hot water to his dry, he still tries to eat his hard dry at times. They also are testing him for thyroid. Romeo has lost another pound and is very thin. He has always been up and down the weight scales, but this loss was over a short period and the vet wants to rule it out. We are hoping it is just his tooth problem that has caused the weight loss, and not something else. So we have to wait and see!
The rest of the crew are doing well and up to no good. Mishka jumped up on meowmy TV and knocked the dish box off and now it doesn't work, so meowmy gots to work on that problem. Someone is being naughty and p__ped on the floor! Two of the littles ones were running around like nuts. You know just a average day. Things are starting to quite down, and most of us are taking our catnaps now......
Just want to THANK EVERYONE AGAIN FOR THE WONDERFUL PMAILS, GIFTIES, PICS, AND COMMENTS. I really had a wonderful time being a DDP. THANKS! THANKS! Thanks!
Wishing you all a Great Day! Be Happy and Be Loved!

First and most important! I would like to Thank all my friends for the gifties, pmails, and comments on my DDP Monday. I had a wonderful day.
Well the snow, rain and freezing started last night. What a mess! They say the worst is yet to come. Hopefully everyone is safe, warm and ok. Remember the ones outside if you can and the birdies.
I am also writing to let you know if you don't hear from us for a while it's because we are having computer issues. Grammy thinks we may need a new one, and meowmy hasn't got the laptop up and running yet..... so we may not be on. Plus with the weather we may loose electric. So we are on until we're not!!!!!
Have a great day!
Love, Kibbles, Francis, & Yoda

My first DDP of 2011!
I would like to Thank the Diary picker and my friends who read my dairies.
What a great day this is going to be!
So far no Snow! Just a beautiful early sun. It's cold but beautiful. No birdies yet either, but I am still on the watch!
Grammy picked me up and gave me my morning lovin and than gave us our dry food. She said we have to wait for meowmy to give us wet! Oh well!
She notice that Romeo was sort of growling, crying when he was eating his food. At first she thought it was because a few of the siblings were eating to close to him. You see he's a Pharaoh and they don't like to be crowded! But after the others left around him he was still making those noises. She thinks he might have some toothy problems. He has been loosing weight, but he does that from time to time, and than he gains. The vet said she didn't think it was his thyroid, but hasn't ruled it out yet. But now Grammy thinks the problem is a tooth issue. So we will be making a vet appointment for Romeo too. You see Francis and I are going for our yearly checkup so now it will be three of us. Sure hope Romeo feels better.
Thank you, again for my DDP today!
Hope you all have a great day! Stay warm and dry!
