Did you know cowboys get acne? Well, I knew I was closer and closer to being a full grown cowboy when the MRS. found some black spots - one on each side of my mouth, and a big one on my chin.
Cowboys don't have to wipe their mouths - it's one of the cowboy rules - so I'm getting acne just like John Wayne. The MRS. took her fingernail and flicked those zits right off my face. She said I am too cute to get acne.
She doesn't know anything about what it takes to be a cowboy . . . . .

One of my new pals, Tao, tagged Calvin in a game. Since Calvin is so busy being an angel, I decided to play instead. Tao lives a long way away from me - be sure to check out her page and ask her to be pals.
1. Your Meowmy is asleep and you are furry hungry You would.....
Well, I call my Meowmy, my MRS., and the best way to wake her up is to knock stuff off her desk or dresser. Our new mini-blinds don't make noise, so that trick isn't going to work for me anymore!
2. You are furry sleepy and are sleeping on a top ledge. The MRS. would say..........
Get down from there before you fall and hurt yourself. Then she would find a chair and come get me down!
3. You saw a dog who wants to chase - what is the furry furst thing would you say?
Hey dog, I'm a cowboy, and I've got big guns!
4. Your MRS. wants you to stop tearing her furniture. You would ... .
I would end up getting a pawdicure if I tear at the furniture!
5. Your Kitty Kat emergency box full of fur fashions is over Oh No!!! You would ....
I have a whole dresser full of outfits and hats and props and stuff. Luckily, I didn't lose any of it when we moved!
Thanks for the fun game, Tao!

Have you missed me? Wowza, it has been a really busy, eventful two weeks!
I know you want to hear all about it! Our last night in Kentucky was fun because there was new carpet in the house and we weren't allowed on it. We all slept in the sunroom together. I did figure out a way to sneek through the barricades and my paws touched the new carpet. After all, somecat needed to leave our pawprints behind!
We were all so good in the car that it only took us three days instead of four to get to Arizona! I was pretty scared and stayed in the big crate with Gleek most of the time. We could come out if we wanted to, but I felt safer inside the crate. The MRS. had sprayed calming stuff in the air and wiped down the crates with calming stuff. After the first day, we all got used to riding in the car, and we slept most of the time. We had a litterbox in the car, but nobody used it during the ride. Inky got it in once, but didn't pee or poop.
We stayed in two hotels. The first one was really nice and we loved exploring it. It was a Days Inn that was pet friendly, and they didn't charge for having cats in the room. The second hotel was really small and we didn't like it as much. It was a Motel 6, and they didn't charge for having cats. There was no toilet lid, so the MRS. didn't want us in the bathroom because she didn't want us to fall in the toilet! The ice machines were broken, so the DD had to buy a bag of ice for our little cooler.
The only time the car was turned off was when the DD got gas. It was pretty hot along our route, so the air conditioning kept us cool!
When we finally got to our new house, we had so much fun exploring and checking out all the rooms. We have a gazillion windows, so it is going to be fun watching the birdies and other animals. Wait til I tell you about all the animals in cowboy country!
First of all, we have a ceiling fan outside on the porch. Last December when the DD was here, he covered it in a couple of plastic tablecloths to keep it from getting dirty over the winter. A dove has a nest right in the middle of the tablecloth! There were two eggs and they hatched and we have two baby doves! The momma dove is on the nest all the time, and we haven't seen her feed them, so she must do that at night! I'll get a picture of her and add it to my page!
The first night the DD saw two coyote outside our back fence. We live in the northern part of Scottsdale, and there is a lot of open desert around us, so we're going to see wild stuff like pigs. Pigs are called javelina, and the MRS. and the DD saw three of them crossing the road when they were in the car!
Other cool stuff that we have here are scopions and ginormous tarantula spiders. Two different nights this big 'ole tarantula has been on our garage door. The MRS. freaked out when she saw it. I'll put his picture on my page too!
I'm just learning about cowboy stuff. I don't think cowboys are supposed to be scared of alarms, but the MRS. accidentally went outside this morning before she turned off the security system. I heard that loud noise and ran for the bedroom. She said my eyes were like saucers!
We've all adjusted pretty good, and I'm back to sucking on the MRS. arm. Even though I'm three, I'm still allowed to do that - cowboys need comforting too!
We're happy to be back, and I want to thank all my pals for making my 3rd birthday extra special! I wasn't able to be on Catster much that day because the mover guys were here and I had to supervise the boxes. I'm reading all my mail and rosettes now.
Oh yeah, I'm now wearing a collar! Inky, Samoa, and I like our collars so much that we're going to wear them all the time. Violet wore his on the trip, but keeps scratching at his neck, so the MRS. said he doesn't have to wear it. Gleek doesn't need to wear his because he moves pretty slow, so he won't get away. Be sure to check out his diary - he has some fun stuff to tell you too. He is going to write about it in a few minutes!

Dang, I just found out from my pal, Monster, that my interview with his Mom got cut from the article she was writing.
She must have forgotten to show the editor my picture because it is hard to believe I could get cut after seeing my cuteness (as the MRS. would say)!
Maybe they realized all my pawsome life experiences needed a separate article. Yeah, that must be it! So, I guess I'll wait around and the next time they interview me, I'll be talking with a cowboy slang.
I'm wearing my big-boy collar, and I really like it! The first couple of minutes I fought it like a madman, but now I think it makes me look important. I got tags! One tag is a green clover with my name on it and the MRS.'s phone number. Then I have a rabies tag, and I also have a yellow house tag with my chip number on it.
I don't plan to get lost on my way to Arizona, but just in case, I'm full of identification! My pals, Nikko and Scooter, are going to lead us through New Mexico!
We're also practicing staying in a hotel room together. All of us, except Samoa, stayed locked in the bedroom with the MRS. and the DD last night. I only got yelled at twice when I attacked the mini-blinds. I wonder if the hotel room will have mini-blinds?
It is gonna be a trip to remember . . . . . .

I was chillaxin on Catster and looking at the ads, and at the top was an ad with a lady laying down and staring at me. At first I thought she might be sick, but then I read the words that said, Attract a Hot Russian Wife - Spice Up Your Life!
I'm glad I can't date until I'm 21!

Guess what? Our big move to Arizona is two weeks from today!. Yep, we leave for cowboy country on July 21st!
We're gonna take the four day scenic route cause the MRS. and the DD know we're gonna be good in the car! We'll only be driving 8 or 9 hours a day, and then we get to stay in hotels each night. I've never stayed in a hotel, but it sure sounds like fun!
And guess what the bestest news is of all? I'll have my 3rd birthday in Arizona - the first full day we are there! I'll be a cowboy for my birthday!
Isn't that pawsome?

I'm back from getting my chip! I made the MRS. show me her cowgirl skills when she tried to put me in the carrier. It took her two tries - kind of like when cowboys catch rabbits - they are slippery dudes!
Violet and I cried on the way to the vet place. I've only been out of the house a couple of times, so the MRS. got sad when she heard my pitiful cries. She started singing to us and the lyrics were something like, how am I going to do this for three days . . . .
Mary, our vet tech, got us in the room, and they decided to take care of me first. Some boy who is learning how to be a vet tech was with her. I told him I was learning how to be a cowboy, and I needed them to put a cowboy chip in me. I asked him if he had a vet tech chip in him, but he didn't answer me. The MRS. said to be careful when they opened the carrier because she thought for sure I would bolt out of it. Mary told her I was really good, and I came back in the room, and then it was Violet's turn.
The vet tech wanna be got to listen to Violet's heart, and then he stuck the temperature thingy up his butt. Oh, I forgot the best part - we brought poopie with us for them to look at! They said to bring it in so they must collect it. They said it didn't matter who made the poopie, but we think Violet made the poopie we brought.
Guess what the vet lady said? Violet's poopie has roundworms in it! Isn't that cool? We all had to get medicine on our backs to get rid of the wormies in case we all have wormies. We don't know how those wormies got in Violet because we don't have houseplants, and we stay inside. Violet also had junk in his ears, so he is gonna have eardrops for about a week. I don't think Violet is cowboy material with all the problems, so it's a good idea he didn't get chipped.
A cowboy has to be good and strong in order to do cowboy stuff. Now that I'm a cowboy, lots of other cool cowboys are getting in touch with me. Sometimes cowboys are called Buckaroos.
I also found out that some cowboys carry guns. I think I'm too young to have a gun, but I'll eat cowboy stew or tell stories around the campfire. I hope cowboys brush their toofies cause I'm not gonna give that up.

Inky told me that in order to be a true Arizona cowboy, I needed a chip inside me. He is pretty worldly, so I believe stuff he tells me. He said he had a chip, and I needed one too if we were going to roam the desert on horses.
So, I'm going today to get a chip put inside me. I don't know if it is a pita chip, a potato chip, or a poker chip, but apparently it helps you turn into a cowboy.
Violet is going with me but not to get a chip. He has to get checked over to make sure he is okay to go to Arizona. He didn't get a rabies shot when he was supposed to last month because he wasn't feeling good. He said he isn't getting a chip because he will be the cowboys' cook, and will stay in the kitchen getting our food ready while we're out on the range.
Gleek isn't getting a chip because he is one slow movin' cowboy, and the MRS. and the DD could catch him if he decided to escape from the ranch.
Samoa isn't getting a chip because she is a girl and girls can't be cowboys.
I'll let you know where they put my chip after I go to the vet's office. Gleek told me to check out the two rabbits - one is black, and the other one is white. I don't think rabbits can be cowboys either . . . . .

I've had my interview with Monster's Mom. She pretty much found out that I'm in charge around here, being the H.o.H. and stuff. She asked about my book, and even sent me a hug through the phone. I'm sure she will plug my book in her article. I might have to dedicate it to her.
She asked for a pawtographed picture, but I'm just gonna pmail her one. Yep, I see fame and fortune in my future.
The MRS. talked to her too. I heard my named mentioned many times, so it shows you how important I am in this family! She said other cats were going to be interviewed too.
I didn't even have a chance to tell her that sometimes I lick the toothbrush holder, and I don't tell the DD about it. And we didn't even mention that somecat pooped on the floor this afternoon.
Dang, maybe she should call me again to get more scoop! Thanks to Monster for having his Mom call my MRS. She said the article will be out in September, so we have to wait all summer before we see it. I'll probably be a cowboy by then!

Monster's Mom is gonna call me in the next hour for my big interview. She wants to know how we all get along. And she is going to write a big article. She will probably want a picture of me to include in the article. She is famous at the Humane Society of the U.S.A., and she is going to make me famous too.
I'll let you know how it goes. I've got to go get ready!
