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!

Today is Grooming Day at our house!!!!!
We all get a brushing, nails clipped, and a good checking all over!
Meowmy usually does me last, cause she knows where I'll be. I get in my house on the perch and that's where I'll stay! It's kind of funny, when it's my turn she will have a hard time getting me out. I will make myself as tiny as can be and make my legs stiff. This makes it hard to get me out! MOL! Grammy just stands there and laughs. I guess it, is funny to see Meowmy trying to pull me out! Since I'm front declawed, she only has to do the back paws. This is a task! I don't like it done and I give her a hard time. I growl like a DOG!, I wiggle like a WORM! And I am basically GRUMPY! Not me at all! As you know I'm the Good One in the house. Well not today and it's all Meowmy's fault!!!!
Hope you all have a Great Day!
