I am definately going to Newman's poop party that he's having after his poop book is finished. Newman is writing a book right now and the title is Poopology. I think if you google it or something, you might be able to pre-order it. Oh, Timo just told me it's gonna be an e-book, pre-ordering is not necessary. And it will also be available for my Kindle.
Now speaking of poopies, I had one that got stuck today. I did a poopie in my box and then I ran away. Mom wanted to pick me up for some reason but I got real upset and didn't want her to. Then Mom saw it. There was a nice tootsie roll stuck in my pooper. Mom grabbed me and put me back in the bathroom, where our boxes are, and told me to finish my business.
Mom went outside and talked to some neighbors. Maybe 10 minutes later she checked on me. Nope, the poop was still stuck. It had not moved one milimeter. So there was only one thing to do. Grab some tissue paper and pull. That's what Mom did and..... a little piece of poop broke off. But more was still stuck. So again. Get another piece of tissue paper and pull harder. YAY, success. All clear now. Pooh, thank catness. That was embarrassing but Mom thought it would be a good story to tell my friends. Mom!
Here's hoping all your trips to the box are good ones.
Purr Script: I got my fall decorations out because I think it's fall. But today was 83 and sunny. All this week was between 83 and 86. Beautiful. I love it.

Mom invited the Firefox to come and live in our puter. It only took a minute and he was here. Our fellow Catsters said we need him and we like him ALOT. Mom says he can't escape from the puter, so we are purrfectly safe. Boy, is he ever fast. That boy's ON FIRE. Mom got Mr. Adblocker too. If any of you haven't done this yet, you have to give it a try. Wow, all the ads are gone. Now our Catster is as fast as a Greyhound. I mean a Jaguar, Yes a Jaguar. It's amazing! No more waiting around forever for stuff to load. Yipeee. Brad Pitt, we'll miss you. But only a little bit.
Mom doesn't have to go and get a cup of coffee after clicking on something and then come back and MAYBE it finished loading. IT LOADS RIGHT AWAY! We are just floored. What a difference. Hip Hip Hurray for the FireFox. We love our fox.

Catster just doesn't wanna play nice with us on our home puter.
Mom spent 7 (seven) minutes this morning posting one diary comment. Pipo, you were the lucky recipient. Catster keeps reloading itself because of long-running scripts and things. Catster needs to load all it's three ads on top, bottom and right of the page before it does anything else. Now we cats are very patient and we can wait, but Mom says she just can't wait that long. It's not that we don't enjoy seeing Brad Pitt in the ad to the right there, Mom says he's a hunk, but he is seriously interfearing with our puter power.
Mom is typing this on her puter at work and she noticed there are no ads here. Mom says at work they have big walls of fire and all kinds of things to keep bad stuff out. So Mom is going to look for an ad-blocker for home. If you know any good ones let me know please. Also Mom says she might have to move the 100s of cat pictures off our home puter and store them someplace else. I don't know. I don't think cats take up much space but it might help.
So if you don't see us here, it's becasue Catster doesn't want to play with us, hisssss.
Mom needs to go and eat her lunch now before her lunch break is over. Love you all. We'll be back after we got this figured out.
Mietzi and Timo too
Paw Script: We'll stop in here once in a while during Mom's breaks and read stuff. We want to see how Ingen gets home, Limo or airplane.

I'm sure you've all heard about Ingen (Catster ID 1011864). About how she went missing on Thursday during a cross country move. Her Mom was moving from Michigan to Washington. Ingen was found Sunday!! We are all so happy. She was still in the hotel, hiding between the mattress and box spring.
All the Catsters here have really come together with ideas and support and now that she's been found there is just one more thing to do. Ingen's Mom had to continue her trip to Washington State. So now Ingen just needs to get to her new home to WA.
Alex Sweet Angel Girl, ID 112787 has organized a fundraiser to pay for Ingen's trip home. And for the fee that the shelter charges where Ingen had to stay for two days. You can donate on Alex' Mom's website here: IBDkitties.net
Red box on the right side is the donation widgit. Every little bit helps get Ingen home to her Mom and cat-brofur.
This fundraiser has been approved by Catster HQ.
You can read more about Ingen's story in the plus Forum, Plus Power of the Paw.

Do any of you get this ad up there? It says "Angry Birds. Play now."
What is that all about? Tabbies have you tried that? Why are the birds angry? I haven't clicked on it yet. I don't like my birds angry. There was some swallows here in the summer that kept dive bombing me. Stupid birds.

The weekend was cold and rainy. It was only 52 and my booty was freezing. Yestpurrday it finally warmed up to a delightful 78 degree. Timo and I were chillaxing in a sunspot on the MS Alemania, having nip lemonade and shrip cocktails, when suddenly, a wild horde of Pirates invaded our peaceful ship. We heard loud cries of
AAAARRgh, surrender and hand over the booty!
Put those paws in the air and nopurr will get hurt!
Aaarrgh, step away from the shrimp cocktails NOW!
Then they planted their pirate flags all over our quaint sailboat. Who knew there were so many pirates in Catsterland.
Well, they didn't really destroy anything. They chased us all over the ship and stole our lemonade and foodstuff. But the flags they left look very nice. We'll come around and recipurrcate soon. We are waiting for a shipment of a big box of fresh zealies here. Should arrive any day now.
Until then many thanks go to
Hunter, who was leading the charge I think
The Tabbies of Trout Towne, who got their paws on our secret stash of Tuna
Angels Molly, Misha and family, who directed the troups from high above
Colette, who poked me in my Bürzel! I'm sure it was an accident
Hobo, he's 17 years old but he was giving high-fives to everypurr in sight. That's his special talent
Chandler Ray and family, we got utterly confused about who is who in that family. Next time would you purrlease wear name tags?
Captain Coldcut Monida, who took over the bridge right away. Sorry Monida, we had no coldcuts on board
Pipo, Minko and family. Minko is a BOY, just like Pipo, and he looked very snazzy in his pirate outfit *blush*.
Shark Tooth Tully and Captain Luke and family. Yep, our ship needed two captains. Luke took the rudder and Tully was on lookout for sharks.
Dagger Toes Simone. Um girl - you need to go in for a pedicure I think. Don't leave any scratches on the planks.
My new friends JoJo and Ariel - who wanted to sail on ALL seven seas. Thank you for the offer. Maybe another time. But maybe we could just stay on Saylorville Lake for now? Timo needs to be back home for supper.
Thanks friends. That was a fun day. There is peace and quiet once again on the MS Alemania now.
Mietzi and Timo too
Pee Ess: What are we supposed to do with this scurvee parot that somefur left on our ship? That burd's got quit a mouth on him. Tabbies, please come back and collect your burd.

Fall is coming for sure dear friends. Mom was going to wear pantyhose today. In the summer she just wears dress pants and socks but her company had some kind of a luncheon thing today were people had to dress up for. So Mom was looking through her pantyhose and I thought for sure she would choose the one that I had decorated so nicely with my fur but she picked another one. She was not amused with my decorating ability and said something about having to get a container with a lid for her hose.
Mom thinks I have real singing talent and I should enter a competition. Tonight I sang this:
Boo O Row Mau Row Rau.
I'm not telling what it means but it happened like this. Somecat was crowding in on my food bowl and then Mom moved my bowl up on the counter. And she told me "hops" which is German for Jump. Well, I did not jump on the counter to continue my meal but just sang the above song. I'll let you figure out the translation to "Human". Mom says it sounded slighly annoyed.
Well, I'm off to look for the container with pantyhose now. I'm ready for a nap.

I am 10 years old now. When 9-11 happened I was a kitten. I lived somewhere else. I can't remember where.
On this day we wanted to say Thank You to our First Responders. Our men and women serving in Law Enforcement, Fire Fighters, Emergency Medical Personal and our Military - active and the veterans. Thank you so much for your service. Thank you for keeping us safe, helping those in need and protecting our freedom. Thank you for putting your life on the line every day. When we all run away from disaster you run towards it to help. You are our heros.
Greater love has no one than this, to lay down one’s life for one's friends.

Mom is so dense sometimes. She just realized something. We live in Iowa and you knowm, yesterday something scary happened in Virginia. The earth shook. I think I felt it!
Mom came home about a quarter past 5 and usually Timo and I come running to the door to greet her. Timo was there (he's not as smart as me). I was nowhere to be found. Mom called me, called me several times. No Mietzi. Mom looked at some of my usual sleeping spots. No Mietzi. Usually, even if I sleep I'm there like after she calls me twice. Mom turned to Timo asking: Where is Mietzi? Finally Mom went into her bedroom, still calling Mietzi Mietzi Mietzi....
There I was in a corner under a bookshelf! It's one of those ladder bookshelves and I was laying on the floor in the meatloaf position. My eyes were open and I moved my head a little bit to look at Mom. I didn't come to her, I didn't meow. I just layed there still. That was very odd. Mom thought I was sick. She started talking to me and petting me. She felt my ears if I had a fever, no fever. Finally I got up and went to the kitchen for supper. Oh, I had also vomited my food on the bedroom floor earlier. That was already there when Mom came home. Maybe a coincidence, maybe I did that when the earthquake started? I don't remember. Mom hadn't even heard about the earthquake yet when she found me acting so strange. She found out on Catster (great place to get the latest news).
And it took her until now to put 2 and 2 together. I'm not making this up. Mom is just a little slow sometimes, MOL. They say there were three aftershocks, the last at 8 pm E.T. Yes, I think I felt the earth shake and I thought it was safer under the bookcase.
Praying for everypurr, everywoof and human to be safe. There are some strange things going on. There was a mag. 7 earthquake in Peru today and then Irene is still coming. Prayers for our friends on the Eastcoast.

Yesterday I wrote about Timo's dirty ears and him throwing up on the kitchen counter. The Diary Lady must have really liked that because today I'm a Daily Diary Pick. Thanks brofur. Diary Lady has a weird taste.
Thanks guys for stopping by and congratulating me. I really appreciate that Big Harry always makes us a nice picture because Mom doesn't know how to make them. I like that he picks action shots of me because that's so me. Wild Mietzi. I had a nice day. Didn't do anything special but I got a can of Fancy Feast. Yummy.
Mom had to buy two new tires for the dumb car on Saturday. Thats a bummer. Do you know how much Fancy Feast she could have bought for us if the car didn't need new tires? Or toys, or cat trees, or fish, or burds?? The possibilities are endless. I don't like that car. Can't she ride a bicycle?
Thanks friends. Love you all!
