The MRS. is thinking of feeding some of us raw food. What, do I look like a cave cat?
I know our pals, Toffy and Vanessa, eat raw food but I think that is because they are from Canada.
The MRS. told me the food comes in frozen round nugget like things and she defrosts it and then we gnaw on it like a bunch of Neanderthals.
The MRS. and Leo's Mommy went to the Moderncat studio this week. The lady who owns Moderncat was talking about her ten cats and how she feeds them raw food. For a treat they get raw chicken wings!
Dang, that might be pawsome to get a whole chicken wing to carry around the house!
For now, she bought some freeze dried treats and has been sprinkling it on our food - mainly to get Gleek to eat his wet food. Recently he refuses to eat his wet food unless the MRS. puts some dry kibble pieces in it. He isn't supposed to eat dry food, but he loves those freeze dried treats, and has been gobbling up his wet food.
Do any of you non-Canadian cats eat raw?

I'm up for adoption.
The MRS. says she is tired of me waking her up before 7 a.m. every morning.
The DD says he is tired of me bullying Samoa, er, I mean, Tagalong.
Leave a comment in this diary and tell me why your house would be the place for me to come live!
Remember, I'm cute, and I use the litterbox.

Now that I'm three, I have to start acting like a big boy. So, I decided last night that I was going to be very brave.
The MRS. and the DD had friends come over for dinner. They have two teenagers who like cats, but they've never met me because I always hide.
While everybody ate dinner, we had to be locked in the bedrooms so we wouldn't climb on the counter and be all neanderthal and stuff. They don't have animals, so they would probably freak out to see us doing what cats do!
All us boys were in the big bedroom, and Samoa was in the guest room. After dinner, they were playing cards, and the MRS. came back to open our door.
I wasn't hiding, and I was right at the door. She said we could come out and visit if we wanted to. So, what did I do? I strutted my big boy self right out to the dining room! I didn't even get all wide-eyed!
I even laid down in the hall and watched them play cards! Of course, Violet was right up next to them, but he is old, and you don't have to be that friendly until you're at least six. I've got three more years before I have to be super friendly!
I went in the kitchen, and the man they call Bill came into the kitchen to check on the score of the basketball game. I looked at him and decided to move a little farther away, but I didn't run away completely!
The MRS. kept saying stuff like, Newmie, you're so very brave, and I'm so proud of you. Now, just because I'm a big boy doesn't mean I have to give up sucking on her arm. Big boys are allowed to keep doing that!

Wowza, I couldn't believe it when I saw my face on the homepage today! And I was happy that my pals, Da Tabbies O Trout Towne, are still on the homepage too as Cats of the Week! We're both featured in that magazine that I was telling you about. Monster sent us a couple of copies of the magazine, and guess what? Da Tabbies are going to pawtograph a copy and send it to me, and I'm going to pawtograph a copy and send it to them!
Now, I have something funny to tell you about the homepage. Being Cat of the Day sort of reminds me of the first part of the ads that are right below my picture.
I'll try anything once . . . . . . gold-leafed eyelids!
It happened to me . . . . . . burlesque gave me my groove back!
Thanks to all my friends who are helping me celebrate today! Have a fun day, and stay away from gold-leafed eyelids!

I knew you cats would want to see a video of me sucking on the MRS. arm. She is usually sitting on the human litterbox when I suck on her arm, and she said we can't video that for some reason.
So, I waited until she was in the DD's office sitting on a chair, and I jumped in her lap and made her roll up her sleeve so I could suck on my favorite arm.
She told the DD to get the video camera, and he got all artsy fartsy and video taped me so you can see me in her lap, and you can see my face in the mirror! I like to knead while I suck, and you can see my paws opening and closing if you look in the mirror.
The video is on my page, and you can also click here to see it!
Let me know what you think about my arm sucking technique!

I hope you cats know that St. Patrick's Day will be here soon, and you have to get an Irish name!
I'll tell you about the names we picked:
Samoa McBoa - you already know why she picked this name - she loves boas!
Violet O'Whiner - we all picked this name for Violet because he is the talker in the house. When it is time to eat, he whines until we get fed. It is pretty annoying, but it works!
Gleek O'Hare - Gleek picked this name because he used to protect our old vets from rabbits. They are afraid of rabbits and that is why cats have to spend the night there sometimes.
Inky O'Shea - Inky picked this name because O'Shea means fine, stately. I think he is trying to be H.o.H.!
Newman McNolan - I picked this Irish name because Nolan means famous! And you all know what a famous author I am, and I'm even going to be in a magazine!
Don't forget to pick your Irish name!

I'm going to be world famous when it hits the streets! Are you wondering what I'm talking about? It isn't Poopology - it's even bigger!
Do you remember me telling you that Monster called to interview me? Well, he has interviewed me twice, but he wanted to wait and include me in a big article over at the Humane Society of the United States of America after my e-book came out.
So, he waited until all the hoopla over my book died down, and then his article came out. Here is the on-line version, but he is going to mail me the real magazine!
I'll probably have to pawtograph several and send them out to all my fans. I might even have to send one to my new best friend - Jackson Galaxy!
Monster is going to need an agent too because his picture is in the on-line article. OMC - I just realized my picture is there too. If you click on the little arrow under Monster's picture, you'll see my picture! Kitty Pryde, Harrison, and Da Tabbies O Trout Towne are also mentioned, and there is more about them here (with pictures too):
Here is the second part of the article with lots of cool stuff!
Thanks, Monster, for writing that great article. You can thank your Mom too cause I'm sure she helped you write it!

Like I was telling you, the MRS. went to see Jackson Galaxy with a couple of other cat moms. They went to the VIP reception and got to take pictures of him and talk to him. The MRS. took one of my photos and asked him if he would pawtograph it.
Jackson loves Newman
And then he signed his name with fancy letters! He said I was cute, but I already knew that. I didn't know he loved me, but I do now!
Then all the VIP people went into the auditorium to hear him talk on Cat Mojo 101. The VIP people got reserved seats up toward the front so they could check out his tattoos. He has a lot of cats all over his arms. He is bald, and when he got sweaty, he wiped his forehead with a bandana. I thought you'd like to know.
The chick from Moderncat was there too. She was in charge and she introduced Jackson to the crowd. There were a lot of men in the crowd too which surprised the MRS.
Jackson talked for over an hour about cats. He said it is important that our humans play with us for at least 15 minutes - twice a day would be purrfect. He said our humans should not be texting, watching television or be on the computer when they play with us. It should be cat play time only!
Then Mr. Galaxy took a few questions from the audience. One guy said his cat sucks on his fingers lots of times during the day. Big deal - I suck on a whole arm!
There were a gazillion cool door prizes, but none of them won anything. They all got goodie bags with cool stuff like a Jackson Galaxy lid that you put on a cat food can, and some tablets that fizz in water and then you spray it on flojectiles and pees to clean them up.
The money that everyone paid to see Jackson was given to three different cat charities in my town. One of the rescue groups even had three kittens there for adoption. I don't know if they found homes or not. The MRS. tried not to look at them because you know how weak she can be.
Mr. Galaxy said his show got picked up for more episodes next year, so we'll all have to watch him!

On Friday night, my MRS. is going with a couple of other cat MRS. to see Cat Daddy - you know, the weird looking dude with the funky beard who carries a guitar case with him.
I hope the MRS. talks to Mr. Galaxy about Samoa cause she has some real issues about boys! I'm sure she will tell him all about me!
Yep, if there is a Cat From Hell in this house, it would be Samoa! I'll tell you all about it on Saturday!

Samoa wanted me to tell you that she is not able to invite today's new dreamboats to her group. There are fleas on Catster. She also can't update the group's forum. She wrote to Catster to tell them.
Don't look at me, I don't have fleas! Hey, why am I her secretary?
Samoa already told me I can't be on the Dreamboat list - something about brothers not being eligible. My MRS. thinks I'm a dreamboat. If any of you hot chicks want me as your Valentine, get in line. I don't give out kisses or presents, but I'll still be your valentine if you want.
Oh, and don't expect me to whisper mushy stuff either. I'm not that kind of guy. If you have a nice smelling arm, I might suck on it. I'm mainly one of those valentines that you just look at and think about how dreamy I am, and how cool it would be to play and chillax together.
Gleek, Inky, Violet, and I might have to call ourselves the DBB's - DreamBoat Brothers! MOL!
Pee.Ess. I have magic powers! As soon as I wrote this diary entry, the group problems were fixed. I told Samoa, and she has invited the new Dreamboats to her group.
