Brothers can be so disgusting. Do you know what Timo just did? He barfed up a hairball, also known as Flojectile, ON THE KITCHEN COUNTER. Yep. And Mom even called him a good boy. Because it's easy to clean on the counter but hard to clean if he barfs it on the carpet.
I got a big surprise tonight. I was napping on the recliner and the next second I got scooped up and put in my carrier. Yes, I did put up a struggle and it took Mom two attempts. Off to the stupid vet we went. Mom said nothing bad will happen. It's just a recheck because I had my teeth cleaned three weeks ago. I was supposed to come back in two weeks and I thought Mom had forgotten. Darn.
Mom thougth I was very scared at the vet. She had a hard time getting me out of the carrier - I held on with all my strength. And I immediately wanted to go back into the carrier but somebody had closed the door. Darn.
I wasn't really scared. I was just upset that I had to go to the vet again. My teeth don't need cleaning. I'm not due for any shots, what the fluff did you drag me over here for. Well, the vet just wanted to look at my wonderful white and shiny teeth. Gee, I could have emailed her a photo of them.
While we were there we ratted on Timo. We told the doc he's been scratching his ears and shaking his head. There are little brown spots in his ears - Ewww Timo. Since we are on Revolution the Doc thinks it's an ear infection. Timo had an ear infection in April too. So now Timo gets yucky eardrops from a pink bottle.
I don't know why this brother of mine doesn't keep his ears cleaner? I've never had an ear infection or mites. Timo's had both. On top of everything else I have to do around here, I now also have to start cleaning his ears for him.
Germany Christmas, my work is never done.

Timo managed to write a test entry.
I want mine to work too.
How did he do that?

Last night Mom was watching a movie and there was alot of loud barking. Very annoying. Why does she watch movies with dogs in them? Then there was meowing, so we watched too. It was an old Lassie movie in black and white. This brings back childhood memories for Mom. Lassie had adopted a kitten. But it turned out it was a mountain lion kitten. Feisty little fella. Well, mountain lion baby got reunited with mountain lion Mama and then Lassie decided to adopt a housecat kitten. Sweet. I think this movie was from 1959. Mom wasn't even born back then. I guess we like Lassie because she adopted a kitten. She's OK as far as dogs go I guess.
Mom just came home wet as a dog. Ha. Hair wet, cloths wet, shoes wet. She was out shopping at Wally-World and when she was ready to leave it started to rain very hard. So she went out this one door and went to the parking lot. Then she remembered that she had parked on the other end of the parking lot.
Note to self Mom: go out the door that you came in in. Yes, Mom is the kind of person that can get lost in a phone booth. So she walked across the parking lot in the pouring rain. Mom said it didn't matter. She was soaking wet after two seconds anyway.
I wanted to meow a big thank you to all who celebrated my DDP with me. I had a nice day. Mom got some new wet and dry food for us. Yumm. Thank you for all the comments in my diary.
Big Harry - thank you for making a picture for me. I love it.
Bush Furs - thanks for sending the lovely flowers. Roses are so pretty.
Ingen - thank you for the pink rosetty. It looks good on my fur.
Samsara, Colette, Angels Marrakecha and Misha - thank you for the heart. Sorry that you had to waste two zeelies on me because of Caster fleas.
Stay dry. We have showers today off and on.

I'm a daily diary pick today. Yay! Thank you dear Diary Lady.
Mom finally has a few days off she says. This morning she left for work. I was like: Mom, what are you doing? You're on vacation!
Mom said she just needed to take care of two things in the office. It won't take long. She'll be right back. Her boss is gonna have surgery on Purrsday, which is tomorrow, so she just had to do these two things for her. After the office Mom did not come straight home. Nope. She stopped at Petco which is good because she did like a buffet thing. She bought a few cans of this and a few cans of that. We're looking forward to trying them all. After Petco Mom did not come straight home. Nope.
Next stop was Olive Garden because Mom had gotten hungry from all the working and shopping for cat food. Olive Garden is a Restaurant. I don't know if you have one where you are. I have never been there but I hear they have pawsome meals with shrimp and seafood. I would have so liked to go to lunch with Mom to Olive Garden.
After Olive Garden Mom came straight home. Yay! So I told her I'm DDP and I want to go outside to celebrate. Nope, said Mom. It's 90 and that is not as hot as in Arizona but it's still way too hot. Yesterday and the day before was 99, heat index 115, so we're making progress.
Oh by the way, Arizona: We are just so happy that Newman, Samoa and family have made it OK to Arizona. Looks like they're done unpacking because Newman and Gleek had time to write in their diaries.
I'll ask if I can go outside tonight when it's cooler.
Thanks for the gifts and concats,

Mom promised. Yesterday. And now she broke her promise.
This morning I wanted to go out mousing. It was a perfect morning for it. Mom said I can't go because she's gotta go to work. BUT MOOOM, I said, you promised you'd take Purrsday and Friday off and I could go outside alot. Mom told me she's sorry but she just has too much to do. The boss changed the way they do this one project and Mom just needs to get a few things finished. Pah!
So tonight I reminded Mom. Remember, I said, you're taking tomorrow off and I can go mousing all day. Oh Mietzi, sorry, says Mom. She has to go back to work tomorrow too! Oh no. Mom says she is finally almost caught up, just this one project that's been sitting on her desk for awhile and it just needs to get done now. Rats! Mom works with paper. There is always alot of paper on her desk. I LOVE tearing up paper. I told Mom, I'd be happy to go to work with her tomorrow. Won't take me very long and all the paper would disappear. Mom didn't think that was a good idea.
What do you do with a Mom who breaks her promise?

Sorry for writing so late. Mom had to work late. Of all nights she had to work late tonight *growl*. I'm OK, friends. Thanks for keeping me in your thoughts today. I lost one little tooth, the one right next to a canine. Why in the world do they call those canines anyway? I don't want anything dog in my mouth. Instead of the tooth I now have two stitches, neat.
So the Dr. wrote in his report to please allow me to have a quiet evening. Mom brought me home and put me on her bed and said I should sleep. Sleep? I've been sleeping almost all day. First I went and hissed at Timo and I smacky pawed him too because he wanted to sniff me. Gotta remind that boy who is in charge. Next I ate a little bit of food. Then I made my rounds inspecting the place. Still looks good. Now I've been meowing to go outside. Mom says no way. I say heck with the quiet evening. I need to check if everything is still OK outside. I need to check out my mousing grounds.
Do you know what I found out while easedropping on the vet talking? He's going away for about a year. Our most favorite vet in all the world is going to the Caribbeans. He's gonna teach at a University there. He's going purrty soon.
So next time Timo or I need anything done we're going to visit him there. It'll be so much fun. Just think of all the exotic birds they have.
Luv you all.

Mom says I'm getting my teeth cleaned today. I'd appreciate a purr or two, no gifts please. Teeth cleaning is almost a routine thing nowadays but I'm still worried. This is my first cleaning ever and I once had a bad reaction to a shot some years ago. I just threw up and threw up, wouldn't eat or drink and my leg hurt so much I just sat under the couch and didn't wanna walk on it. Mom took me back to the Doc and he gave me medicine and I was all OK again.
Things are strange today. I think Mom is running low on food and water. Our water dish disappeared last night, the crumbs in our dishes got thrown away. And this morning she forgot to feed me. Timo went into the laundry room and when he came out he was licking his lips.
Have a happy Monday everyfur. Mom says I get to sleep alot today.

As I told you yesterday, we are in the middle of a heat wave. Upper 90s all week and high hoomidity. Today was 98 and it is too hot for the horses. Really. We have a racetrack nearby called "Prairie Meadows" and they cancelled the horse races today because the horses all complained and put their hoofs down. And then the jockeys took a vote and everybody voted to not race today.
Maybe the horses can go to the Altoona Aquatic Center today and have a nice swim in the pool. Horses can swim, right?
Mom doesn't want us to lay too close to her on her bed because we kitties have alot of heat. I say: turn down the A/C and hug your kitty.
Have a cool day.

Oh my cats. It is so hot. My paws are sticking to the keyboard. It started Purr-eye-day with 92, Saturday 93, Sunday 97, today 98 AND the heat index is 115. Oh my catness. ALL THIS WEEK it will be in the upper to mid-90s. We got all ceiling fans running on high. Mom is drinking water by the gallon. The A/C is set to 80. It's nice for us because we like it warm but poor Mom looks like she's going to melt right into the sofa. Usually it only stays this hot for a few days but not for over a week.
I'm wondering, how do cats and their hoomans who live in places like Mew Mexico and Airy Zona stand this heat? The worst thing is that Mom says it's too dangerous for Timo and me to go outside. We can't even go for a minute. I don't like that. I love to go outside. In the morning it's in the 80s already and the hoomidity is real bad.
Does your Mom have this thing that she holds against her hair and hot air come out? That's what it feels like when Mom opens the front door. Hot air comes in. Oh Iowa winter where are you? Still 159 days 'til Christmas. I wish Christmas was here now because it's always cold on Christmas.
I'll go play with my mouse now. Mom says it's too hot to play with mousies. See what I mean? This heat is ruining everything.

Did you cats just see America's Got Talent? There was this old guy doing card tricks and he had a cat on his shoulder. One card he pulled out from behind the cat's ear. The Judges liked it and they're going to Vegas, yay. First Howie pressed his buzzer cause he didn't like the dancing the guy did but then he gave them a yes. Sharon just liked that cat, he he.
And there was this little Asian housewife who said she's kinda shy but she's getting better about coming out of her shell. Wow, can she sing. She was really nervous, you could tell. But she sings as good as an Opera singer! Amazing. The people in the audience all stood up when she started to sing, and Piers did too. Wow, she sang like an angel. That Lady's got talent.
Happy 4th of July to all. Looking forward to seeing the kitty in Vegas.
