I am Cat of the Day! Wow, I've never been. What an honor. Thank you so much for all the gifties, pawmails, comments, friend requests. Big Harry made me a trophy and I didn't have time yet to go and pick it up. I really apurreciate all of your friendship. I'll come around and thank you all but now I have to go back outside. It's finally a beautiful day in Iowa, 64. Last two weeks we had 40s and 50s. Mom just lanted some flowers on the patio and didn't let me help, Humph.
She went to Best Buy to look at a nook and a Kindl. Like I told you she's thinking of getting either the hidey place or the small child. She said the nook wouldn't work at Best Buy, so she still doesn't know.
You all have a purrtastic day! I sure am.
Mom, MOM, MOM open the patio door. I need to go outside.
Meow to you later,

Mom might buy a small child. She said she wants a Kindl. When Mom uses a word that I don't understand, I assume it's German because Mom is from Germany. So after extensive interpurr research, I found out that in Germany a Kindl is a small child. There is even a beer called Berliner Kindl.
What is Mom thinking? We have no room for a child, not even a small one. Where is the Kindl going to sleep? Not in the bed, that's where I sleep and Timo too sometimes. Not on the couch. I like to sleep there too and Mom sits there alot.
A Kindl would take up alot of Mom's time. They need things constantly. They are loud and run fast and they pull on kitty's tails. I don't want a Kindl in the house.
Mom says she doesn't know yet. Maybe she'll just buy a nook instead. Now nooks and crannies I like. I could use a nice nook of my own to take a nap in. What do you think of Kindls and nooks? Do your pawrents have one of those? Which one do you like better?
Going to find a nook to take a nap in,

Happy Easter and happy Resurrection Sunday everyfur. What did you get from the Easter Bunny? I got some Peeps. At least I think they are mine. They were laying on the counter. Everything with a name like Peeps is for cats, right. There is just one problem. My Peeps don't want to peep. I put my wet nose on them, I pushed them with my paw and not a peep can be heard. Aren't they supposed to peep if it says Peeps on the box? Do you have Peeps that don't peep?
There is a lot of false advertising going on. I ran accross another couple. Mom bought "Bunny Tracks" Ice Cream. Mmmh, I thought this is a great flavour for Easter. But I licked a little bit and I sniffed it and I'm sorry to report that no actual bunny parts were used in the making of Bunny Tracks ice cream. How dare they to call it Bunny Tracks?
Then there is this box of Nips. Nips is made with catnip, right? Wrong again. It says on the box "rich and creamy hard candy" and there is no nip in it. I'm sure. I know nip when I smell it.
You have to be so careful when you buy stuff. Things are not what they appear to be. I hope that all your Peeps peep. There is a picture on my page of me and my Peeps.
Disappointed about my Peeps,

and I saw a green Parrot.
Oh furs, guess what? Mom saw him tonight. Mom came home late and it was already dark and as she was walking down the sidewalk she saw Mr. Easter Bunny himself hobbling along. And then he disappeared in our backyard. Isn't that exciting? Mom is sure it was him. He has long ears, he is light brown and he was hobbling away quickly. Mom tried to go after him but she heard him mumble into his beard that he is so busy right now and can't everybody just leave him alone?
I want to go out and see him but Mom won't let me. Oh Mr. Easter Bunny PLEASE come back and bring me some presents. Some little chicks maybe. How many more days 'til Easter?
It was very windy here all week and we got alot of rain too. Yesterday I looked out and there on our lawn was a green Parrot. Mom says the wind must have blown him over and he is stuffed. What is he stuffed with? Wild rice and mushrooms? Mom put him on the lid of the trash can. So if anyfur is missing a green Parrot they can come and claim him, if he hasn't flown away. You need to dry him out good. He was very wet.
Easter is going to be so fun because the Easter Bunny is REAL.
Can't wait for Easter,

We just watched the Pink Panther on the picture box. He is so cool. I love the Pink Panther. When Mom was a little girl, growing up in Germany, he was only on once a week and Mom never missed it. This time he got a baby alligator delivered to his house by accident. And the little guy kept biting Pink Panther's tail, MOL. Pink Panther fed him a bottle of milk, gave him a bath, put him in the playpen and took him for a ride in the stroller. The little Gator was cute.
Love you Pink Panther,

Mom decided to clean under the refrigerator. I’ve been looking under there and putting my paws under it for a few days now and Mom finally got the message. And I just knew it. I knew they were under there because I saw them run in. Lots of my beloved mini mousies were hiding under there. I was closely supervising as Mom used a butter knife and a feather duster thingy to coax the mousies out. Here is what we found:
Three milk rings, one twisty tie, one pistachio nut, one acorn, one acorn top, one pencil, one little plastic part that nobody knew what it was for;
EIGHT mini mousies, five got a bath and are drying off in the sink, three have been determined unusable by Mom, two big dust bunnies.
Mom almost lost her butter knife in the process but I reminded her to focus on the important part. Sacrifices have to be made. What’s one butter knife? Let’s get them mousies out from under there. Them is not supposed to be hiding there!
I think there are more mini mousies hiding way in the back but Mom said that’s enough for know. Mom wants to know why do they build refrigerators like this that you can never get mini mousies back out from under it? Can’t they build them a little bit off the ground so that you can get a swiffer duster or a cat’s paw under it?
I can’t wait until Mom decides to clean under the washer and dryer. I think I heard some squeaking under there the other day.
Waiting for my mousies to dry,

One of my many duties around here is to wake Mom up. So this morning I looked at Mom's alarm clock and it said 6:00. So I went into action and gave my wake up meows. Mom's eyes opened a little bit and she went: Mmmuuump, Mietzi go away, it's only 5:00. I meowed: no Mom, see the clock? It's 6:00. Time to get up and make me breakfast.
Mom insisted that she wanted to sleep because the clock might say 6:00 but it was really only 5:00 because she had set the clocks ahead. Well, I thought, my internal clock said it was earlier than 6:00 but Mom always gets up at 6:00 and makes us breakfast. So I was going to trust the alarm clock. I tried again: Purring in her ear - Mietzi, go back to sleep, Kneading on her belly - Mietzi, go away, it's too early. Walking across her back - no reaction, Tearing up toilet paper -rats, I think Mom fell asleep again.
Finally at 7:00 Mom got up. She said NOW it was really 6:00.
So now I'm catfused. What am I supposed to do tomorrow morning? Wake Mom up at 6:00 or 7:00? The real 6 o'clock or the 6:00 that is now 7:oo?

Well, Mom says she'll finally has to get started on it. On paying the Tax Man. So there's paper all over the desk and some grumbling and mumbling. And then more grumbling because Purroperty Taxes are due this month too. Yikes, Rats.
Who is the Tax Man? Mom doesn't seem happy to know him.
Grumble, grumble - I'll better leave Mom alone today.
Going to lay in a sun puddle,

It's State Wrestling championships for the high school kids here right now. This year two girls qualified for it. Now the one girl was supposed to wrestle against a boy in a match but the boy didn't want to. He forfeited the match. He said it's against his religious conviction to wrestle a girl.
You all know what really happened, right? I think the boy was afraid to wrestle the girl. Because us girls are so much better at wrestling. I win most of the matches against my brofur. We wrestle alot. One of my best moves is biting. That's allowed in wrestling, right? I also like the bunny-kick move and the head-lock. The very few times when it looks like I might loose a match, I jump up real quick and run away and brofur has to chase me. Wrestling is fun.
Harness News: no news :( It's not here yet. It's gonna snow on Monday. So my outside walks have to wait awhile. Yes, that's right, snow on Monday. And we did just have 65 degree on Thursday. That's Iowa for you. If you don't like the weather just wait a day. It'll change.
Have a good Sunday every purr.
Disclaimer: We do respect peepl's religious convictions. It's good that peepl are not afraid to stand for something.
