Today I learned that Miz Rose can run on 3 legs while using her 4 th, the front paw, to beat me. It now appears she is capable of sustaining a 3 legged run/smaky paw attack for several minutes.

I was sitting in my window last evening, thinking my orange cat thoughts. I spy the gecko! I meow ' Hey little fella, come here. I have a favor to ask.'
He stopped and glared at me and said in a surprisingly deep voice,' Cat, I did not get this big by falling for that line. I know you cannot eat me as my skin has a nasty toxin in it that will make you puke and foam. However it does not seem to stop you felines from grabbing us in your claws and tossing us about for your own personal amusement. No cat, I think I will pass on the invite.'
and he crawled off. I was shocked! I have never grabbed a gecko and tossed it about for my own amusement! I may think about it and paw at the glass when I see one but never have these claws pierced the skin of a gecko!
Well maybe that one time but I was just playing!
So now what to do? I have to find Loki a brain to his brawn for his detective job. Oh my wee head hurts. I am a Chef! I must concentrate on creating food, not catering to the whims of a mad cat!
Then Loki joins me. I close my eyes tight. He head buts my shoulder and speaks, ' Greetings my brother! Have you found my Watson yet?'
I gulp and then start to clean myself. He observes this grooming awhile then he swats my wee head! Hard! I meow, ' Why did you strike me?'
Loki meows.' It is not advisable to lie to Pharaoh oh lowly chef. And don't you dare start beating your silly head on the wall either!'
I refrain from head banging just in time. I sigh and meow, ' I have not found a worthy Watson, yet but I am working on it brother.' I am about to speak further when he waves his paw and meows, ' No worry. I have decided you will do just fine. Just have to work on your appearance and that dreadful southern accent of yours. You sound like a yokel. I need refined. And close your mouth Chef! You are not a gecko waiting for a bug!'
I close my mouth to the faint sound of gecko laughter.....

OMC! Well I have not meowed in awhile as we lost our good pc and must use the old one now and it does not like Catster. MOL. Loading issues.
I was in my window last night gecko watching and keeping an eye open for Rose, when my dear brother Loki jumped up to join me. He sits quietly for awhile, with the occasional sigh, which signifies something huge going on in that brain of his. I prepare to hit my wee head. Finally he head butts my shoulder and says, " I am still writing my story but I am thinking of getting a job oh brother of mine."
I cringe. I wait.
Loki continues, " I am thinking of being a detective. Like Sherlock Holmes. You know of him?"
I nod, hoping he will just go away.
He ignores my gulp and meows, " I need a brainy side kick to do the actual work, like Watson. See everyone thinks Holmes was so smart but he was just lazy and handsome, kinda like me. Now he did have some smarts as he had enlisted the aide of Watson while making himself the hero! I want to do something similar." He heaves this huge sigh then looks at me and hisses, " Stop banging your silly head! You will addle whatever brains you have and I need you to help me find my side kick!"
I relax! I will not have to be in another one of his adventures into madness.
I meow, " Well you do not want to be upstaged by a fur who is more handsome than you."
Loki waved his blue paw and meowed to me, " I have no worries there as no cat is more handsome than me."
I just nod.
I meow," I will think on this some. Now let me alone to ponder who would make a good side kick for such a cat as you." I blink my eyes at him, hoping he will take the hint.
Nope. He is staying.
Loki sighs once more, I cringe once more, getting ready to head bang.
He meows, " I know there are mysteries to solve here in our own home and yard. I am the cat to do this. I will be famous and you will help me get there, IF you find me the purrfect side kick to do all the thinking and paw work. Now I must go and get my massage and grooming."
Loki jumps down. I sit and stare at the gecko. And stare and think and then I smile. If one silly green gecko can sell insurance to humans, the why couldn't one of these whitish pink bug gulping ones assist one silly blue feline? I mean he is outside and has connections. I settle down and count the reasons.
1. the gecko out the window is ugly so no competition for Loki.
2. possibly will work for bugs.
3. Smarter than they look and patient. That is important as Loki could try the patience of the Sphinx.
4.I am desperate.
I now will plan my approach to said gecko. I will keep you all informed how it goes.

Meowed by Cap'n Chef Rooster Lackey-Bollier
In my boat on the seas
Ran into some singing fleas
Waving small flags singing
see what the seas a bringing.
I looked west then east
finally spying a foul beast.
Fur all red,a shark grin
yowling something about wearing my skin.
Thinking back to a poem I read
I remembered a fellow named Fred.
so I hoisted my sails fast
and ignored her cries of avast!
Now safe on land I spread the word
Look out Mates for Cap'n Wilma Sea Turd.

first off we cannot express our gratitude for all of your love and purrs and gifts of POTP for Loki. Mama will thank you personally soon. Now Mama will speak.
We have been force feeding Loki the vet food with water every two hours. At 5 p m after getting a good syringe full in him, he sat up and groomed himself some, then he went and nibbled at his dry food too. He still has not used the litter box. I pray he will start drinking water or he will have to stay at the vets tomorrow for IV's. He is sleeping in the little cubbyhole in the cat tree instead of hiding under the bed, which I hope is a good sign he wants to be close to us. I will not have any peace of mind till those blood tests come back in. He got so sick so quick and his fever was so high.
Please keep up the purrs and POTP it is working. I believe!
Back to Chef.
Rose has been watching Loki very closely, it is funny how she hovers. Mina too. I lay near him as he sleeps. Even old Redd Catt licked Loki's head today.
Thank you my friends for the love! It means so much, your love and support truly makes a differance.
Chef and clowder and Mama Grace

My brother Pharaoh Loki is one sick kitty. He went to the vet this morning with a fever of 105.8. This came on sudden. he was feeling a bit poorly yesterday then went downhill overnight. The vet feels it may be a bad infection as he seems to have some pain in his abdomen, but no signs of blockage. His tested neg for feline leukemia/Fiv...But they sent the blood work off to test for other things. Should have that back in a day or two. He had his neck shaved for blood work. The vet told Mama Loki was a true blue as his skin is as blue as he is. Mama was crying and the vets were trying to make her relax. Loki must take Baytril and Clavamox twice daily as the vet wanted to 'hit him hard' with antibiotics. He must be force fed a prescription wet food with water every two hours. If he does not let Mama do this he will be checked into the vet clinic to be placed on IV's. Since he is alert they sent him home but any changes int he goes. He will go back tomorrow for the vet to see him again. My Mama is so scared and worried. Some calming purrs for her would be appreciated.
On a happier note at the vet office they have a new office kitten, an orangie with white face and paws who is In Charge. Her name is Clarabelle. She chased a big old grasshopper down, ripped off its legs and ate it. She runs that place already and she is just 7 weeks old!
Thank you for caring and purring for Loki.

I got a wonderful surprise in the mail from my friend Toki! His talented Mama made me a Chef hat and scarf! I wore it and Mama took pictures..I look so handsome! I cannot meow enough thanks to them both! I will get some pics up soon! Thank you my friend.
I have been busy cooking and trying new recipes. Mama has been very ill with a cold but is feeling better now. Still has a bad cough and sounds like a mouse when she talks. Rose hates that mouse voice of Mama's and she will attack her if she talks too much! Rose has sensitive ears. Plus she is just a devil cat too!
Rose and her evil kitten Mina! What a pair..They enjoy double teaming us. Let me tell you how dastardly they are! I was in my window bird watching when little Mina jumps up and starts kitten chatting me, you know kitten chatter, why do birds have feathers why is the hair in your ears white how come you have a whisker that is half black and half white Uncle Chef..totally distracting me so her nasty sneaking warty toed Mama cat could sneak up and bite my Man cat parts! Then Mina bit my nose! And Mama laughed and said how cute! Look at you all playing!
Playing? Playing? You need new glasses! NO! You need a new pair of eyes if you think that was playing! I dove for the underside of the bed where I found Loki, The Count and Jazzy hiding . I asked them why..They meow, Hair Ball paste time..I meow for them to scooch over..I HATE that stuff and I blame Loki for it all...I pass my hairballs just fine, but now Mama is all worried we must have help..She tried placing it on my paw..I just held it up and refused to lick it off..we had quite a stare down waiting contest too! I won that. But lost my victory when she grabbed me by my scruff and just forced that nasty goo in my wee mouth.. Mama has some mean tricks up her sleeves. I will have to watch her closely.
I am cooking Fathers Day hamburgers and hot dogs today! What are you all cooking up for Dad?
Please remember to Purr it Forward my friends! Life is fleeting so share your love with friends...
I love all of you.
Lets Get Cooking! Its summer!
