Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
You are just the best snuggle bear I ever had, you.

Nocat has ever asked me if I wanted to be their Valentine. I think that's because I'm a wild thing and that scares the man cats away. Now finally the wonderful cute Zeke has asked me if I want to be his Valentine and I said YES! *jumping up and down for joy* Isn't it meowvelous? I am such a lucky girl. I have a Valentine!
We were sitting next to each other in one of our groups, watching a movie and that's when I first noticed how handsome he is. I love gazing into his green eyes and I like his orange floofy fur. Oh, I am so happy! Thank you, Zeke, for asking me.
And we have so much in common. We are both 11 years old. We are both Tabbies. We like to sleep on people's laps or on our Mom's. We both have asthma. Well, my vet doc says I have asthma but I've been fine ever since one episode in the summer. The doc says there are stripes on my lungs but I think those are just my Tabby stripes. I'm striped inside and out.
Here's a link to my sweetie's page. Isn't he handsome?
I love my Zeke a doodle.

Mom? May I talk to you?
- Sure Mietzi. What's up.
I was thinking... Are printers very expensive?
- Well, that depends. Some are cheap. Some do a lot of stuff and cost more. Why do you ask?
I think we should buy a new one.
- Why Mietzi? Our printer still prints fine.
Well, you see I was sitting on the printer. And you know that new food you bought me? The one with the white sauce in the green can?
Chicken Florentine is what it's called. I thought that sounds so fancy. I thought I would like it. It went down OK. But then I think the Chicken wanted to go to Florentine...I think that's in Italy... The chicken came back up and now it's on the printer. And you know the slit where you put the paper in, and then the printer goes rrreeeeet rreeeeet rrreeeeeet? There is a bit of Chicken Florentine in there now.
- MIETZI !

If it fits, it ships my furry....TAIL. Dang it. Get in there. Mom, put your paw, um finger right there. Now I'll push on this end with my paw.... and, umph, it won't FIT. Come on you.... gift. Fit in the box. Hmph, won't fit. Now what?
Oh hi. How are you doing with your holiday preparations? Are you ready for Christmas? Did you help your Mom with the tree? Did you help Pawpy carry in the gifts and arrange them under the tree? Did you snoopervise that all three Wise Men are in the Manger? Helped to write cards? Wrapped gifts? Held the ribbon in place?
The holidays are so busy. I think we finally got Mom ready.
We are going to get a winter storm tomorrow afternoon. 6 to 8 inches of snow. Our first snow of the season. Hopepurrly Mom can come home early from work and maybe stay home Purrsday too if the roads are too bad. Too bad, MOL.
Gotta go. I have some more wrapping paper to tear up.
Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year.

I officially declare bunny hunting season open! I was outside yesterday afternoon and I got one! See picture on my page. I brought it back to the patio and Timo was outside too. We were both so excited. Mom made us both go inside and you know what? This morning when I looked, my nice bunny was GONE. I wonder what happened to it?
Anyway, I was telling Mom Wednesday night already that Bunny hunting season is open and I need to get out there and do something about the bunny population. I was out earlier and I saw a big one but Mom picked me up and made me go inside. So I yollered and yelled and meowed until 2:30 in the morning telling Mom to let me back outside. The bunnies are waiting. Didn't work. I got a time out in the laundry room for a few minutes and after that I went to sleep in Mom's bed.
I know where the bunnies are. I'm taking orders! You can get your very own bunny! I'm charging two small cans of wet food and two mouths full of kibble (Timo said I'll HAVE TO ask for kibble for him). The bunny on my page is just an example. Each is a unique original. Actual merchandise may vary in size and color. I'll have the mail Eagle deliver them to you. Don't be surprised if your bunny looks funny. He said he'll have to charge 30% delivery fee.
OK, send your orders in. I'll start filling them tomorrow. Today is a rainy day.
I'm singing in the rain,
I'm hunting in the rain,
hunting yummy bunnies in the rain

to let you all know I'm doing pawsome. My meow has been fully restored and I've been using it A LOT. Thank you all for the purrs and prayers while I was under the weather. I see I'm a diary pick again. I'll come around and thank you all for the last one soon. Mom said she would help me with that soon.
Purrs and much meow,

Well, I woke up early to use the facilities and I see that I'm a DDP. I think I'm gonna need some purrs please friends and some prayers too.
My meow is not back. Instead Mom dragged me to the vet again yesterday after she was done shopping. She thought I felt hot (Did not. Mom, maybe you were cold. Maybe that's why I felt hot), my nose was dry (I had JUST gotten up from a nap) and I was still coughing (Yes, that is true. I was) Also, there was some stuff coming out of one eye and I was squinting it.
At the vet I got to see our favorite Dr. She is the best one there. She looked at me intently, poked and prodded. Mom said she wanted my temperature checked. (Mom, can you not keep your mouth shut?? She wasn't even going to check it until you said something). Nice vet Lady checked my temp. I was NOT happy with that procedure. Mom said for some reason I don't like coming here. Noooo, not if I'm treated like this. My temperature turned out to be just right for a cat.
So Mom told the long story of what happened to my meow, that I've lost it a week ago, and everything. Vet Lady said I'm old. WHY does every person keep saying that? And they want some blood. Wait a minute, I just gave some on Monday! This time Mom agreed with me. Oh! vet lady said, let me go get those results. Next she wanted to take a picture of my lungs. Mom let them do that. I tried to smile for the camera but I'm just not feeling like smiling at this point.
My photos were done and vet lady and Mom looked at them. Apparently there are some lines in my lungs. Those are the teeny tiny strands where the air moves thru. Deep down in the bronchi or something. Looks like that is irritated.
So now here is the bad news. It could be Asthma, it could be heart worm. I got a shot of Depo-Medrol. I ate a good lunch when I got back home, then I took a loooong nap. I think I got up around 8 pm and ate some supper. Well, bummer. I don't want worms in my heart. There is no room for worms in there. My heart is full of love for Mom and Timo and stupid guest cat too I guess, and for all of my Catster friends.
UPDATE: I'm feeling better! I got up at around 8 and meowed at Mom just like normal. Ate some breakfast too. The medicine is working :)

MIAOW, MEOW, RRREOW, Merouwwww, Meeooww, PRRRT, kkkk, mak, gack!
Oh thank catness, it all works again. I have missed meowing so much. I don't talk as much yet as I used to but some is better than nothing. Where was my meow? I don't know. I think maybe I had forgotten it outside. That's where I first got it back yesterday. My first word was Gack! when Mom said we're going inside again. That's my usual sound of strong disagreement. Mom went outside with me yesterday evening and I ate some grass. Grass is good for you if you have something stuck in your throat. I hadn't been allowed outside since Caturday, since my meow first disappeared.
Once back inside we watched 'Master Chef' and I really started to talk when the contestants were asked to cook steaks.
Mom came home and found a little present on the carpet. A nice, big hairball. Am I ever happy to finally get rid of that thing. Do you know what it feels like to have a hairball stuck in you since Caturday? Eating that grass yesterday sure helped.
There is a lot of noise going on in the condo above us. Somebody new moved in Caturday and I can hear him arrange his furniture and sometimes he drops something heavy. The condo was empty for a month. That was nice. Hey, Caturday is when I lost my meow. Do you think the neighbor moving in could have something to do with it? Did he steal my meow? I bet he did. I better send him his reward. His very own Guest Cat! Sally girl come here a minute sweetie.
MIAOW, MEOW, Merouwwww, Meeooww, Prrrrt,

(Skip to the last paragraph if you want to know about the reward)
Well, this was only one of the worst days efur! As you know I've lost my meow Friday night. So this morning I was not able to wake Mom up. Usually I meow until she wakes up. Guest Cat offered to help me. Some of you know, we have a guest cat. She's not really ours. She's just visiting. She can't be ours because we have a limit on how many kitties we can have (homeowners association crazyness). I am really NOT supposed to talk about her, so Psssst. So guest cat walked accross Mom's head once at 6:00 am. It was already an hour later than when I usually wake Mom up. I told guest cat that isn't gonna cut it.
She said, don't worry, I have a plan. A minute later Mom shot out of bed, hollering Owie, No Sally, What are you doing? Then she ripped all the sheets of the bed, ran to the laundry room, threw them in the washer. Ran back, got some shamy cloth and cleaning solution and was dabbing like mad at the mattress. Wow, so much activity so early in the morning! Guest Cat was grinning and said to me: See, I told you I can get her up. I thunk at her: Oh girl, are you in trouble. Not only did you pee on the bed, you also tried to cover it up and had your claws out and nicked Mom's leg.
Our breakfast finally got served, only an hour late. I ate a good breakfast. Then I went to lay on the bed with no sheets and no mattress pad and no little flannel sheet for the cats either. Several loads of laundry got done. I had just settled in nicely on the bed with no sheets when Mom grabbed me and stuffed me into the carrier.
Into our Cat Recreational Vehicle we went. It was my first ride in our new CRV and I did not enjoy it. They didn't do any of the cat specifications that we had ordered! No cat beds and cozy blankets, no scratch pad on the walls, no sushi bar in the glove compartment. After a short ride we walked into that dreadful place that smells like many dogs, many cats and some small critters.
So this was a new Vet Doc who we didn't know yet. The one we like was not available until Purrsday. Mom told her about my missing meow. I got checked out and we're none the wiser. Doc said I don't appear to be sick. Could be allergies, could be some bug, something that's going around, a lot of humans are sick too. Did Mom have the windows open lately. Yep, sure did. We went from like 96 down to mid 70s and it was lovely. Did the open windows bother me? Well, no. What kind of a question is that anyway. It's not like I'll go: Excuse me Mother, there is a draft coming thru. Would you mind closing the bedroom window please? Good news: I gained some weight. I'm almost 8 pounds.
Then I got my rabies shot. I needed one anyway. Next they wanted blood because I'm old ( AM NOT!!!) and it's a good idea to check old cat's blood. So Mom said yes, that's OK. They took me to the back where they keep the vampires. They're sending my blood to a Lab to check out. The humiliation to have a dog look at my blood. The Lab will call tomorrow. Back into my carrier and home, sweet home.
Once home I barfed out all my breakfast in three episodes of barfing. Most of it landed on the carpet. Mom needs a new giant bottle of Natures Miracle, MOL. Once I was done retching I hid under the bed. Oh, in the meantime Mom had emailed her boss: "I'll be in when the cat is done throwing up, MOL." Maybe I shouldn't have that rabies shot after all. Mom had lunch at home. All was quiet. I was resting under the bed. Where was guest cat? Hiding under the couch. That's right, she better hide after the pee episode. Timo had a very nice morning watching the lawn care guys mow and trim.
Mom did go to work. Came home late. We all greated her at the door, like we always do. I did meow twice today. But mostly I'm just not speaking with Mom right now. The good news is that I ate supper and I'm not hiding. I participte in the usual family life, lay in all me normal places.
Natalie the NatCat inspired me to offer a REWARD FOR THE RETURN OF MY MEOW. I'm offering one bag of natural cat treats AND your very own guest cat! Guest cats are fun to have around. This one has very unique ideas. I need to think at Mom to set her alarm clock now. We don't want a repeat of this morning.
still silent Mietzi
