I had such an amazing day yesterday being a Daily Diary Pick. Thank you for all the rosettes, pawmails. Furriend-requests and well-wishes. I had so many visitors come over and bring gifts, it was a furry fun day.
The furrst to concatulate me was the one who had the farthest to travel - Alfie, who came all the way from the U.K. He brought me a cute ladybug. I said: “Wow, it’s great to see you lad, but what brings you all the way across the ocean?” He told me I was DPP. I said: “noooo, you’re pulling my leg.” So Mietzi and I ran to the puter to have a look and yes, it was true. I checked my pawmail and there was a message from dear Hazel Lucy wishing me a pawsome DDP day.
Well, Alfie was just getting comfortable on the couch (he needed rest after the long trip) when I heard a scratch on the door and there was Samoa, and she had food! Good, I was getting hungry again. Breakfast was like two hours ago. She had a yummy shrimp tray, bless her heart.
We were chowing down on shrimp when something green rolled over the kitchen floor. I jumped “Eeeeek, what IS that.” In walks a cat who I didn’t know yet. His name is Henry. Henry explained that the green thing is a Brussel Ball and maybe we could play a round. Well, I’m always up for play, so we put the shrimp in the fridge and off we went batting that ball around.
We were getting a bit tired when I heard a lot of cats chattering. In walks Emily with all her kitty brofurs and sisfurs. 4 girl and 3 boys in all. Mietzi said: “About time that some more girls show up.” Emily had another ladybug for me. We put it in Meowmy’s flowers together with the one from Alfie and we watched them for a while. Then we got the shrimp tray out again and Mietzi brewed some nip tea and we all played more Brussel Ball. Oh what fun we had. But then, oh disaster, one cat wasn’t paying attention and the ball rolled under the fridge.
We were all laying on our bellies in front of the fridge trying to fish the ball out when somefur called: “Hallooo, anyfur home?” I yelled: “We are in the kitchen, come on through.” In comes another new furriend, Tony from Tennessee. He is in my “Hey! You look like me!” group but I hadn’t met him yet. He walks over and says: “Timo, I just heard, concatulations.” And he sticks this nice blue rosette on my furr. I say: “Furr me? Um thanks pal. Come join in the fun, have some shrimp and nip tea and I’ll get out some catnip mice furr youall to play with.” Mietzi got some milk out of the fridge and started lapping away. I yelled: “Mietzi put that away, you know milk makes you puke.” She says: “Timo, don’t be such a bad host. Maybe the other furrs would like some.”
“I would like some milk” I heard. And in walks Oly with her whole furrmily. Oh my catness, in came 3 girls and 4 boys all of them felines. Oly brought a heart and we had hugs and kitty kisses all around. Then she handed me a scroll and clapped her paws. The scroll said "Concats Diary Pick of the Day". Oly said: “We would have brought our new doggie along but she just came home from spay-surgery. She didn’t feel up for the trip but she sends you doggie-licks.” I said: “Oh poor doggie. Thanks. I’ll meet her another time I’m sure.”
It was getting a bit crowded in the place but Mietzi started giving tours and showed furrs the bedroom with the nice big bed. Lots of room furr lots of furrs. And the bathroom in case anyfurr needs it, and the laundry room and another bedroom. Some furrs were looking out the windows watching birds when one said: ”Hey, that’s not a bird. What is that up there.”
So we all looked up and…

So we all looked up and it came closer and Oliver said “Oh look, it’s our sweet doggie Lexi. She is an Angel now”. And right behind her was angel cat Shamus. They both looked so happy and beautiful. That was a very moving moment.
A little while later somecat said “Look, I see a bird.” Sure enough, in walks another new furriend, Boris from Denver, CO. carrying a bird cage with a blue bird inside. “Oh how purrty.” I said. “But let’s not keep him in the cage. He looks so sad in there.” So we all went on the patio and opened the cage and watched him fly to the next tree.
Back inside cats were asking if there was more food. Now that was a problem. The shrimp tray was long eaten up. We can’t open the food cans that Meowmy has furr us. What to do?? I started mumbling about there being apples and bananas when wait a minute, do I smell cupcakes? Here comes Cleopatra II and her six brofurs from Canada carrying several boxes of cupcakes. “Where do you want us to put these?” she asked. “Um, kitchen is just fine.” I replied. There was a mad rush to the kitchen as everycat wanted a cupcake. “Timo, come and see. There is somecat else who wanted to concatulate you”, said Cleo II. And sure enough, up in the sky were her angel sisfurs Cleopatra and Nefertiti.
I’m afraid to say from here on out things got a little bit out of paw. We had more cats in the place then I can count. I heard a loud crash and down came the antenna from the TV. “I was trying to get in Animal Planet” came the excuse. “I’m sorry”, I said “We don’t have cable, you can’t watch it.” Somecat was nibbling on Meowmy’s plants. “Hey, those could be poisons, you better stop” I told him. I think it was Hobo, he’ll eat anything that smells good. I think Hobo and Moose were there too. I lost track of who all was there. Some cats had turned the puter on and were pmailing cats on catster and giggling a lot. “Be careful, don’t break the puter” I warned. “Oh look” one cat said, “there is a pmail from Buddie, Hazel Lucy’s dear husband. He is calling Timo handsome, hee hee”
Mietzi’s had too much nip tea. Well, she was making pot after pot and had to taste efurry one. She was running zoomies thru the house like mad and a bunch of cats tried to catch her. Other cats had started wrestling matches. One cat told me our litter boxes were in serious need of changing. She was right I’m afraid. So I made an announcement that cats needed to “go” outside on the lawn. Mietzi and her gang came zooming by again, racing up on the kitchen counter, up on the fridge, up on top of the cupboards. And then I got wet! In their hot pursuit they knocked off the watering can for the plants that sits on the fridge. A lot of water spilled on the floor and on me. “OMC, YOU GOTTA CLEAN THIS UP” I yelled. “Start drinking the water. Meowmy will be so mad when she sees this.” Some cats sniffed the water “Yuck, how long has that water been in there”. “Then get some rags out of the laundry room and wipe this up” I ordered.
Wow, I’ve had about enough of celebrating. Plus Meowmy would be home soon. I thanked everycat furr coming and politely suggested they start the journey home. “Oooooh”, said Mitzi and her gang “just when it’s starting to be fun”. I told them they are welcome to come back some other time. Then it was just Mietzi and me again. I curled up for a serious nap. I was exhausted. Pretty soon I was woken up by Meowmy cuddling me and telling me I am a DDP. “I know, I know” I said. Meowmy blamed Mietzi for the antenna and watering can on the floor and me for the stench from the bathroom. We both said it wasn’t us but she didn’t believe us. Then she made some food furr us. Oh no, we were still stuffed. We just took a few licks.
Then I remembered it would be pawsome to have a picture of my DDP from the catster home page. I saw other cats have those. I told Mietzi. She thought Alfie knows how to make those but he was on his way back to England. Who could we ask? We snuck into the computer room (Meowmy was busy cleaning litter boxes) and started pmailing a few furrs. Mietzi was starting to panic. Most furrs were asleep already and nofurr responded. Then all of a sudden three or four pmails came all at once. Thank you so much Flicka, Dusty the Puppycat, Lulu Hogg Bush, Junior Fluffkins for making DDP pics for me.
Your exhausted Timo

I am worried. Lately, when I go to the Catster homepage, for a few seconds it says on the screen: Adoption Mail (8). Then it goes back to Friend Requests.
Adoption Mail?? What's that all about? Did Meowmy put Mietzi up for adoption? And are 8 hoomans actualy interested in taking her? Mietzi can be a pain sometimes but it would be sad not to have her around anymore. I like to wrestle with her.
Or did Meowmy put me up for adoption? Maybe because last Furrsday I let all the kitties in and we had a pawty. But Meowmy told me, when I furrst got here, that I never have to leave again. That I can stay furrever. I had a family once before but then they did something called mooving and they couldn't keep me any longer. I am puzzled. Need to go ask Mietzi what she thinks it all means.

I think we are safe. Meowmy didn’t put us up for adoption. She just told me what a good boy I am, and Mietzi got lots of praise too when she was DDP on Friday.
Tomorrow is my purrsday. I am so excited. What am I going to get? Mietzi said I won’t get anything because I just got a Morgan’s bed not too long ago. *sniff* could that be true? I really need a new feather attachment for my Da Bird. My old one is all torn up and a feather is missing. I have tried to think that at Meowmy, looking deep into her eyes and think: Da Bird toy, Da Bird toy. You gotta keep it simple when thinking at hoomans. They are not so smart. They don’t understand long sentences.
Do you know what I really want for my purrsday?
I would like everycat and everydog who reads this, to make one card to send in for the P*I*F FOODraiser For every card we send in, shelter dogs get one pound of food. If you put your address on the back you can win prizes. You just cut out your picture and glue on a 4 x 6 card and write what advise you have for dogs or what you wish for dogs or confess something about dogs. You can do things like: I love dogs, Dogs are fun to play with, Dogs smell funny, I wish all dogs had a home, a dog once chased me up a tree…… the pawsibilities are endless.
Examples are at P*I*F FOODraiser
Won't you join me please and make a card? Purrty please?
PMAIL ME WITH ANY QUESTIONS!

WHOO HEE it's my purrsday. It took Meowmy especially long today to come back from hunting. You know, every morning the hoomans leave to go hunting and at night they come back and sometimes they actually caught something. Meowmy mumbled something about a long day in the office. Whatever I said, where are my treats? And treats she had. She got me new feathers for my Da Bird. Yes, just what I needed. And we got some pawsome food, something natural with duck in it, yummie, and then a can of Blue Buff. Mmmmh, I had to share all with sisfur but oh well. It was enough for us both. For desert we had the rest of the cake that my friends Hobo and Moose had sent over. Mietzi had a present for me too. A little sheep that you can open and put catnip inside. Thanks sis.
Thank you all for the nice gifts on my page. Love them all. Moose I am chasing the rabbit. Alfie I am wearing your pawty hat. Samoa I am rolling your egg around.
What do I really want for my purrsday? See diary entry below.

Did you see? I am a daily diary pick again today. I'm almost embarrassed. My tales aren't that good. I have some good ideas but my typist has limited time. THANK YOU Catster cat for picking me again. Also my sincere thanks furr all the well-wishes from furriends by pmail and the special gifts. Cleopatra Grace and family send me a Lady Bug and Samoa and Family brought over red roses (mmm don't red roses mean something special) *blush*.
I received a furry special gift from Tweety McGee and Family. They send a lovely bouquet of yellow flowers, you can see a photo up there on my page. Thank you Tweety.
What's new with Timo? We are waiting for Spring here. We had alot of rain the last few days. Saturday and Sunday Mietzi and I went to the Pen Paws furrst anniversary pawty. Wow, we had a blast. Food, dancing, games, fun with furriends. There were contests and prizes to win. And the trivia questions were furry edu-cat-ional. I learned how many eggs a hen lays in a year, and who was the heaviest and longest dog ever recorded. We learned alot about different dog and cat breeds. I like the Puli dog best. And I learned that cats need 16 hours of sleep a day, so I am curling up in my Morgan's bed now. But furrst, another thank you to the admins of Pen Paws for a great time.

This morning in our house:
Mietzi sat at the patio door asking if she can go out purrty please.
Meowmy said no, she needs to leave soon.
I sat next to my Da Bird toy asking Meowmy if she will make the bird fly furr me.
Meowmy said no, she can't play with me now, she needs to go and get her hair done.
"Hair done" I thought, it looks fine just the way it is. Oh, by the way, hair is what the hoomans call the furr that grows on their heads. Meowmy said she needed to get some color put in her hair. This is strange. Hoomans are so preoccupied with looks. Why do they want to put color in their furr? I don't care what color a hooman's or an animal's furr is. It's what's inside that counts, your purrsonality - not outside looks.
Well, on the bright sight, Meowmy did go outside with us when she got back from "getting her hair done". She planted flowers on the patio and we walked around in the beautiful weather. It's sunny and 63 here in Iowa.
I'm taking a nap.

A few days ago Meowmy came home and she smelled like dog. Big dog that is. So I gave her a questioning look and she explained. The big dog is a Greyhound and her name is Autumn. She is seven years old and she used to run races together with other Greyhounds. Then after she was done racing the hoomans had her have puppies for a few years and now something furrtastic has happened in her life. My Meowmy's collegue adopted her! He brought her in to the office the other day, so Meowmy got to meet her.
She says Autumn is the sweetest dog ever. Very, very nice. Still a bit shy, but who wouldn't be. She is in a new place. She now has one dog sisfur and three cat siblings. She shows no aggression at all towards any of the other furrs in the house. One of the cats got curious and went into Autumns crate to investigate. Autumn was outside the crate and saw the cat but never did anything. Meowmy's collegue is so happy that they have Autumn and his two skinchildren are too.
Meowmy said that some hoomans make the Greyhounds run races and they bet money on who wins. Money, she says, is something that's very important to the hoomans. Mietzi and I like to race too. But we just run furr fun whenever we feel like it and nobody is betting "money" on us. It makes me sad that the Greyhounds have to do something that they may not want to do - and all furr something called "money".
Happy purrs for sweet Autumn,
Paw Script: You all know that I am scared of dogs but a dog like Autumn... Who could not like a dog like that. Meowmy's collegue said Greyhounds are kinda like big cats, MOL. Calm and mellow and just plain nice.

The other day Meowmy was in the Petfood store buying food furr us. And in walks a Greyhound (with hooman). And then another three Greyhounds (also with hoomans). And then they sat up a table and put out information. This was the Greyhound adoption group. The same group that Meowmy's collegue adopted Autumn from (see diary entry below about Autumn). So Meowmy walked over and petted all the dogs. They are soooo sweet she says. So mellow. She told the hoomans that she has two cats. They said that two of the dogs are used to being around cats. Meowmy! Don't you even think about it!
Autumn came to Meowmy's office twice so far. She only stayed furr about two hours. Want to slowly get her used to it. All the hoomans in the office came and went "Ooooh what a nice doggy", and they petted her alot. I want to go to Meowmy's office too! I want to be admired by the hoomans and have them say Oooh what a nice kitty.
Paw Script: I guess the Greyhounds really like to race on the racetrack. I just hope the hoomans treat them all well because the Greys are doing alot of work furr them, running them races, so that the hoomans can have something called money. Please, I purr that it's not all just about the money. These are living, breathing animals. If you use animals for entertainment, please treat them good.
