My meow is gone. I open my mouth and nothing comes out. Well, sometimes a little croak comes out. It disappeared Friday night. Mom says I sounded like a horse Friday night. Saturday I couldn't meow at all, today I managed a little meow twice. But I've just been sleeping a lot today. I don't even bug Mom to be let out, which I usually always do - every day. I asked Mom once today to go outside and she sternly looked at me and said I have an owie and cats with owies cannot go outside.
If anypurr finds my meow, could you please send it back by expurress delivery? I miss my meow. I have such a strong voice.
I still eat and I took a cat bath too. My nose is wet, I don't think I have a fever. I'm just more quiet today. I coughed a little earlier. Where could my meow be? It's very strange not to have a meow. I talk a lot usually. Mom says it's very quiet in the house. Timo thinks I've just meowed too much lately and worn it out. Can that happen?
Mom made some kind of an appointment for me for tomorrow morning. I hope I get to do something fun.
Purrs (my purr works just fine),
Paw Script: I dictated this with telepathy. Well, that's how I dictate almost all my diaries. Oh please don't send any pressies. Save your zealies. I'm fine, really.

Mom and I have an exiting weekend planed. Tomorrow Mom is invited to go to a new restaurant called The OP. Mom asked her friend if that is The Opossum Place? No, her friend said, it's The Opossum Palace! It's a new restaurant and it isn't even officially open yet. Tomorrow some people get a free entree and drink so that the serves can train how to serve opossums correctly. That Opossum will taste so good.
Then Sunday Mom and I are going to the Opera to see "La Rondine" also know as "The Swallow". Only one ticket came in the mail but that's OK because I will sit in Mom's lap so that I can see the Swallow better. Mom says there will be a lot of singing in that show. Well, yes, Swallows always sing a lot. I wonder how close to the stage we will be sitting. Maybe I could reach out a paw and ..... Whoops, where did that Swallow go?
It's been very hot here, in the 90s all week. I got to go outside yesterday evening for a few minutes. Hope you'll all have a nice weekend.

Thank you to everypaw who stopped by with birthday wishes and presents on Caturday. My birthday was okay I guess. It was raining off and on and I couldn't go outside like I had planned. I got nothing on my birthday from Mom.
Sunday, the day after my birthday, I expected lots of presents but I only got special food. A pouch of chicken and shrimp, mmmh. Sunday was super hot here and instead of celebrating my birthday, Mom went to something called the art fest. She only lasted two hours, then it good too hot. Then some neighbors and her grilled and I was NOT invited. Hmph. How rude. Mom says there was two dogs, one of them a puppy, on tie out leashed and they were wrestling and jumping and I would not have enjoyed it. I would have enjoyed the grilled chicken! Anyway, I am two years old now, 1+1 and I feel great. I run zoomies every day like a kitten.
When Mom got home today, I ran outside and something strange was going on. Somebody had left a big hairdryer on and the air was very, very hot. Mom says it's not a hairdryer, it just feels that way. Mom carried me back inside after a minit. Today it was 101 degree here with 111 heat index (whatever that is but I like that number), tomorrow will be 95 and Fryday will be 92. I am expecting more presents from Mom, I do need new mini-mouses. Mom mumbled something about it being too hot to go shopping. Monday and Tuesday flew by. Mom was very busy at work and had to work longer.
I wanted to say Thank Mew to all the furs who gave me something for my birthday. I love you all and appurreciate your thoughtfullness:
Ice Cream: Monida - Finney, Lacey and Angel Alex - Tabatha Teddy Bearz and family

Huh? I don't know if it's just me but has the type on Catster gotten smaller? Do I need glasses? Typing a comment on a diary, the print is so small, I think I need to borrow Mom's glasses? Also, has our page gotten smaller and the background bigger? Maybe Catster just wants more space for their ads and they made our pages narrower? I don't see the ads, I use an ad blocker. Anypurr know how to adjust the size of the webpages when you're using firefox?
Lots of questions tonight. I better take a break. I'll strain my eyes.

Yesterday afternoon all us cats were taking a nice nap. Mom was complaining that everything had gotten so dirty and she needed to do some cleaning. Well, it wasn't our fault that things were dirty! Everybody knows that cats are very clean animals. Mom cleaned the kitchen and the room that holds her human litter box and bath tub and sink. The whole time classical music was playing on the radio. Mom thought it was calming for us. Well, we enjoyed it. More than scrubbing the toylett anyway, MOL. Mom's gotten into classical music recently. And yesterday they played "The Magic Flute" AND they sang it in German. Now Mom grew up in Germany. So she thought she'd listen, it might be fun. Well, Mom isn't used to listening to Opera. Even tho they sang German, Mom understood very litte (maybe it was just because she was scrubbing the toylett at the same time?). Some of it was spoken dialog. That was better to understand. I was listening too, because one of the characters is a BIRDCATCHER.
Today Mom went bike riding with some friends in waterworks park. They got off to a good start, then they stopped after a mile to talk about which way to go. There was a Port-A litterbox for humans there and one of her friends went to use it. She came back out and said that she is sick. Really, really, really sick with cramps and things. Then she disappeared back into the Port-A litterbox for humans and she didn't come back out for half and hour! Really. Mom and her friends didn't want to leave her alone in case she would pass out or something, and she kept saying she'll be out in a few minits. Finally she came back out, feeling sick as a dog, and she said she texted her hubby and he's coming. Mom and her friends rode on for another six miles. They saw a cormorant bird, a bunny, a redwinged blackbird. They heard a woodpecker pecking wood. An eagle flew overhead. A helicopurr flew overhead giving rides because there was some kind of festival going on that they drove by. There were lots of humans outside, biking, walking, roller-blading. It was a purrfect day, except we didn't get to go along. And except the poor lady that got sick.
We hope you had a happy weekend. Why can't Mom have tomorrow off like last Monday? Not fair. We need more holidays.

At our local Petstore:
one little three months old brown tabby - $110
two little three months old brown tabbies - $125 total price for both.
What a deal! I told Mom we should get two. They are so cute and you can never have to many brown Tabbies. I just think brown Tabbies are the best. But that's just my purrsonal opinion.
Happy Memeowrial Day every fur. Eat some German Bratwurst and drink Cola with no caffeine and no sugar. I just saw that in the store.

I wanted to say THANK MEW to Gleek and Tyson who sent something special on my DDP day. Thank you also to all the kitties who left comments. I love comments.
What's the Mietz up to? Not much. Our Cat Recreational Vehicle, with the name Honda, got his much needed bath and he's not stinky at all any more. We have not been allowed to ride in it yet, which I don't understand since it's our CRV. I think Mom is breaking it in for us. She mentioned that it runs for 24 miles on one gallon of milk. I'd gladly run 24 miles to get a gallon of milk. I love milk. Or maybe I could walk 12 miles and get half a gallon?
Mom got rubber floor mats for our CRV. You know what that means. When we finally take a ride in it, we can puke in it.
Mom finally got back to meeting with gym guy yesterday. She had been seriously slacking off. It was so funny. She was stepping on the elliptical steppy thingy and gym guy walks over and says: Hey, I haven't seen you in a while. Where have you been?
Mom is like: um, yeah I've been busy. Work is just crazy you know.
He's like: really? What's going on at work?
Mom says: um, we had our annual meeting and committee meetings and lots of stuff. It should slow down in the summer.
Gym guy: Well, great to have you back.
Way to go, gym guy, keeping Mom accountable.
Mom thinks it's kinda frustrating. She took 786 steps and burned 51 calories. 51? Mom gains 51 calories by just looking at food, MOL.
Have a great week, friends. The weather has been in the lower 80s but I haven't been allowed out much. grrrr
Oh, where do you think our first ride in the CRV should go? (if anypurr says Vet, I'll come over and smack you)

Wow, brofur wrote all these diary entries about the car and I end up being a diary pick today. Ladies first, right? Thank you, Diary Lady. Since I'm a diary pick, I thought I'd update you on the great car hunt.
The great car hunt is over! Mom successfully hunted us down a Cat Recreational Vehicle, also known as CRV. Mom gave our CRV a name too. It's Honda. Our CRV was born in 2010 and he has only run 6600 miles so far.
Mom got him Tuesday night from this guy named Dealer. She wasn't even planning on bringing something home, she just wanted to look. Mom was so proud of herself because she haggled successfully, got a good price for the little Pontiac we had, got good financing. Mom was happy, until she drove him home.
The new CRV stinks! Literally!
He is a smoker's CRV. Pew eee. Mom didn't notice when she did the test drive. It was 83 and humid outside and the dealer guy had the AC turned up to the max and the AC has an air filter. See, this would not have happened if I would have helped Mom hunt cars. I would have smelled it right away. Well, the dealer guy said they've only had the CRV for a week and Mom thinks they only vacuumed him out but didn't shampoo yet. Mom has been driving with the windows partly down alot and the moon roof open too. And she leaves him sitting in the garage with all the windows down and roof open. Mom talked to a detailer and next Purrsday our CRV will get a good bath on the inside. Mom already had the cabin filter changed (it was as grey as my friend Roger's fur) and the smell is much better already. Mom also keeps a half a cup of baking soda in the CRV. Bottoms up.
I hope we cats don't need to go anywhere until our CRV has had his bath.
I got to go outside yesterday a bit, Mom right by my side. We've had 91 yesterday, 83 the day before. Lovely.
Have a happy Sunday everypurr,

While my brofur is boring you with one car-related entry after another, I have something much more important to report. A friend of Mom got a one year old cat on Saturday from the Rescue League. (A house is not a home without at least one cat and she had no cats). He has a name that the friend doesn't like. Need some help finding a name for this boy.
Orange, about one year old. Anypurr know some good boy-cat names?
