Free Potty Training!

So here I am on Catster, the place for CATS. And Catster welcomes me with an invitation to attend a free Potty Training Seminar, MOL. Well, I don't use a pot, I use a box. And I don't need any training on how to use my box. I'm quite good at it. It's pretty simple. My fur-Mom showed me when I was a wee kitten and I caught on really fast. You find the box or some other loose material, dig a hole large enough to hold your stuff, you 'go', then you cover it all up. The last part is actually optional. Sometimes I don't cover up, especially the stinky stuff. That way it serves as an alarm clock for Mom.

Mom says the training is for dogs. Really? ROFL, do dogs have to learn how to go pee and poo? Wow, dogs are even dumber than I thought. I'm not too fond of dogs myself. Can you tell? Maybe I should go to the Potty Training class and give them dogs some pointers. I'll think about that.

Going to use the box now,


My Favorite Things

It’s Sunday afternoon. The sun is shining. We got a fresh box. My belly is full of blue Buffalo and I got to nibble on my cat grass. Our gas fireplace is turned on. I’m resting on a new blankie that I got from a good friend for Christmas and Mom has sprinkled some nip on the blanket. There is a fly toy waiting for me for later. Mietzi is helping Mom read the Sunday paper. Coffee is percolating for Mom. Mietzi has a mini mouse waiting when she feels like playing. There is some nice, soft music playing. Mom is home all day today.

These are some of our favorite things. These are the things that make me happy. There is this woman that I saw on TV a little while ago, I think her name is Opawh, and she told people what her favorite things are. It’s all stuff you can buy and some of it is very high priced. No way could we or even wanted to spend that much money on purrs and shampoo and boots, ugg. Christmas is all about the presents any more and there comes this woman on TV a few days before Christmas and goes right along with all the consumerism. I got all my favorite things right here.

Happy Timo

One more night - Merry Christmas

I have to sleep only one more night, and then Santa Claus will be here. He comes tomorrow evening. December 24th is called 'Holy Night' in Germany and a holy night it is indeed. Happy Birthday, dear Jesus. Thank you for coming to earth to save us.

I can't wait for Christmas. I have two boxes to unpack. One was sent to us from dear, dear friends that we met on Catster and the other is from our Secret Santa from the PenPaws Group. I'm so excited. I don't know if I'll be able to sleep.

Merry Christmas, dear friends. Wishing you and your family a purrfect Christmas with wonderful treats, toys and lots of play-time spent with your favorite humans. Happy and healthy New Year to all and peace on earth.

From Mietzi and Timo and from Mom too.

Silver bells silver bells
It's Christmas time in the city
Ring a ling hear them sing
Soon it will be Christmas day

I'm breathing a big sigh of relief. The purr board is back to normal. Hey, did you see on the community home page, in the lower right corner, there is now a link called "purr board changes". It looks like the top cats and tech cats are listening to us and they even appologized for all the confusion that they have caused. Friends, feel free to leave a comment there again. It will not show up right away. It will be moderated again. But you know - they are listening and that is a good thing. Kudos to top cat for that.

I am just a teeny tiny bit worried because top cat mentioned that they are trying out different versions of the purr board. I am just worried we are going to have comments on comments on things that cats commented on other cat's comments again.

I am repeating here what I wrote as a comment (it's being moderated):

But please, please, please, Top Cat, I beg you on my knees, don't do anything diffurrent to the purr board. We are happy with it the way it is now. We don't knead to know everything every cat does.

Just wondering

I posted my opinion about the new feature with the diary comments in the blog. You go to the community homepage and in the lower right corner click on "A couple changes and fixes of note". I don't know if you can even see my post there because it says: awaiting moderation. So I'm just wondering. Is that comment field in the blog not for voicing our opinions? The blog text says "Let us know what you think". Well, I did that. Are negative opinions not allowed? Here is what I posted. It's not the most courteous post ever, I wrote too fast to be super courteous. But it's my opinion and I don't think it's offensive.

This is not good. It’s horrible. Please change it back to the way it was before. The purrboard is so cluttered. All this cat x commented on cat y. And there is a gazzillion of those. There is no room on the purrboard for the information that I really want. I just want: who wrote new diary entries? Who posted new pictures? The way it was.
Don’t like it,

This new feature - it's horrible

Well, just in time for Halloween Catster did something horrible. They added this new feature. In your friend updates and purrboard you are being notified of ALL the comments that ALL your friends made on ALL their friend's diaries AND photos. There is a gazillion of entries of all the comments posted. It makes the purrboard very crowded and looks horrible.

I don't care about ALL the diaries that my friends post on. Some of them are diaries of cats that I'm not even friends with. When I comment on somecat's diary, I read others comments too and that's enough. This is information overload. I don't need to know about every poopie or burp that everycat here makes. I just want to see if my friends wrote new diary entries or put new pictures up.


FRIENDS - all of you: If you don't like this you need to tell Catster. On your community homepage, in the lower right corner there is "Updates From Catster, A couple changes and fixes of note". You can write a comment right in there if you don't like this. Or if you do like it you can comment there too. Please do, so that Catster knows.

I'm not combing through all of these comments. I'm going to read a book instead.


Newman made me puke

I know you are all waiting for the embarassing story that I have to tell about Mom and cleanup, like Mietzi hinted in her diary. Well, it will have to wait. First I need to tell you that Mom came home with this new catfood today. It says "Newman's Own" on the can and I was eager to try it because my friend Newman made it.

So I gobbled it all down real fast. Wait a minute... Is that fish I'm tasting? Yep, too late. Puke, all the Newman's Own came back out. I think I'm allergic against fish. It always makes me puke. So why would Mom give me catfood that has fish in it? Well, first how can you not try something that Newman made? And Mom swears she only read "made with organic chicken". Mom, next time read the fine print. It says right here "chicken & Salmon formula for cats". Salmon is a fish, Mom. I can't eat that. Jeez.

I wish Mom would stop experimenting with my food. I'm quite happy with the Blue Buffaloes that I usually eat. I got a can of Buffaloes after the Newman came back up. I like my Buffaloes sliced, not flaked. Is that so hard? Thank you very much.

Poor Mom. First she had to clean up Mietzi's Bunny puke and now my Newman puke. Well, it's her own fault. I need to run and see if we have enough cans of blue Buffaloes.

Meow to you later,

Paw Script: Mietzi liked her Newman with salmon very much.

Wow, I'm a daily diary pick again. I'm floored. The diary girl loves me *big hugs to the diary girl*

Thank you to Luke for the lemonade and Buddie for the concats. I really love these awards but I can't stay long. Mom is still here, not much longer tho. So she needs all my help getting ready.

Big hugs to all my friends,
your TK

Paw Script: while Mom is gone, I'm planning to go on my own trip to San Funfrancisco and visit Guido the Italian Kitty and also the Diary Girl! I would love to tell her in purrson how much I appreciate being picked again. Maybe I'll even run into Catster's top cat


Mom is leaving us

Dear friends,

I won't be here for awhile. I just found out that Mom is leaving us. You see, we have this German Grandma (and Grandpaw) and they want Mom to come and visit. They say they have forgotten what she looks like, so she needs to fly over there. I was not aware that Mom can fly. I don't know exactly when this will happen but I think it will be soon. There are two suitcases out in the living room. Mietzi and I have tried them out and we both fit with room to spare. Mietzi is determined to go with Mom but I'm more of a home body and I think I'll stay here.

Mom got on a big Greyhound several months ago and got a new passport. She had to go all the way to Chicago to the German Consulate. I told Mietzi if she wants to go, she'll need a pussport. Mietzi thinks she doesn't need one because she is an American Shorthair. See, Mom was not born here, that's why we think she needs a passport. I warned Mietzi that she better get a pussport or the Europeans might mistake her as a European Shorthair and then they'll want to keep her in Europe.

Anyhow, Mom says she really needs to start packing and she won't have time to turn the puter on for us. A neighbor will come over and feed us but she doesn't know how to turn the puter on. I hope I can talk Mietzi into staying here or I will be really lonely without her.

Will miss you guys.
Meow to you later,
