Turn the air on?

The summer so far has been very rainy and colder than normal. Meowmy said she has been saving alot by not having to turn the air on. Not turning the air on? What does she mean? Is there no air? I know there is air here because I can breath just fine.

Now the hoomans are pretty big and powerful but I didn't think that they control when there is air or not. I thought the Lord made the whole earth and also the air in it. And he made cats and dogs and mousies (yippee) and the hoomans too. Purrlease tell me that Meowmy is not in control of the air. She is so forgetful sometimes.

Hoping the air will stay on,
Timo

Meowmy says this will be a good day. No more deadlines. At least not any pressing deadlines. She can finally get her desk cleaned up and live can return to normal.
Happy that cats don't have deadlines,
Timo

 

Tornado Warning

June 14th 2009 7:00 pm
[ View A Comments (1) ]

Last Sunday something scarry happened. We had a tornado warning. I know it was already a week ago but I beg Meowmy to write in my diary more often, I purr and meow and make my cutest face but she says she is busy.

So anyway, it was a lovely day in the 70s. Then in the afternoon it got cold real fast and it got dark. Meowmy had the talky picture box on and they said we should go into the basement because a tornado is coming our way. Then the loud dog houler went off (the hoomans call it a siren). We don't have a basement, so Meowmy grabbed Mietzi and put her in our bathroom's linen closet. Then she came back and wanted to pick me up. But I was half asleep and didn't know what was happening, so I tried to hide under the table. She said we need to hurry and this is no game. So I let her carry me into the bathroom. She closed the bathroom door and let Mietzi out of the closet.

I don't know if you have tornados where you live but they are very dangerous. We just had to wait. I kept looking at the ceiling because I heard the wind houl and it rained really hard. Mietzi was purrty good but she can't sit still furr long. She kept asking what will we play next. She kept running up on the bathroom cabinet and into the tub and out and back again. Then she started pulling open some drawers and cabinet doors. She hissed at me once because I was in her space (says she). Then she discovered Meowmy's hairbrush and rubbed her furr all over it. She said it feels really good. When Mietzi had played enuff with the hairbrush Meowmy brushed my furr with it and Mietzi is right - it does feel good. Meowmy said she needs to buy a new hairbrush now. I don't see why, that one worked really good.

We waited about half an hour, then the wind and the rain died down. The tornado ended up turning north and it missed us. It did some minor damage in another town, no hoomans or furrs were hurt.

Thankful,
Timo

 

Mia has a home

June is Adopt A Cat month. At the place where Meowmy gets our food, there are also cats and dogs for adoption. There was a cat named Mia. She is 14 years old and used to have a good home. But her hooman passed away and so she ended up in the shelter. Meowmy was seriously thinking of bringing her home. She is a beautiful tabby like us (the cat, not Meowmy) and the shelter people said she has a sweet purrsonality. Meowmy thought she deserves a good home to live out her remaining years. My biggest concern was Do we have enuff food furr another cat? So Meowmy opened up the pantry and Yes there was plenty of food there. Meowmy said if that runs out she'll go hunting furr more. So I thought well O.K., as long as there is enuff food I guess it's OK. I'm a shelter cat myself and I remember how happy I was when Meowmy picked me.
The next time Meowmy went to the food place, Mia was not in her cage. The shelter people said Oh yeah Mia got adopted.
If you are thinking about adopting a cat, don't forget about the senior cats. Everybody wants a kitten but the older cats are not so wild and have alot of love to give.

Happy purrs furr Mia,
Timo

 

More food pawlease

I think now that we have this new litterbox, in order to really try it out good, we should be getting extra portions of food. Because, you know what they say, what goes in one end comes out the other end. So furr us to have a lot coming out of the other end we need more put in the one end. Makes purrfect cat sense, doesn't it?

Just always thinking,
Timo

 

WE WON!

We won, we won, we won! I'm so excited. Do you remember when we did all the decorated cards for dogvice/dogfession to raise food furr the shelter dogs? Well, some of our cards are winners and yesterday a big box arrived at our house. In it was a ScoopFree Slide Litter Box. Kool! It's all put together and sitting next to our regular box. Mietzi already tried it out. I think she used that one because I deposited "a bomb" in our regular box, MOL.

dogvice/dogfession is now called The Pet Postcard Project and you can win kool stuff too by sending in your cards.

Our cards that won are:
First one is of a black & white cat that lived with Meowmy a long time ago, named Moritz. The text says "Please still love me and take care of me when I'm old. I was your faithful friend for many years"
That brought tears to my eyes when Meowmy made that card.

The next one pictures Mietzi on top of a ladder complaining "I wish the dog would help more with the house work"

Then we have a card of old me helping Mommy with her craft projects. That one actually won a price for "most creative cat". Yep, Mommy needed lots of help from me with this project.

Last but not least is a card featuring Mietzi and me fighting. The caption says "Show your teeth when fighting. It will scare your enemy". In this one Mietzi won for being the naughtiest cat, MOL.

You can see our cards by clicking here . You have to scroll down a bit, past "April Pet Postcard Project Winners". Remember to send in your own cards purrlease. For every card you send shelter dogs get one pound of food AND you can win something.

Thank you soo much Nikki Moustaki, creator of The Pet Postcard Project www.petpostcardproject.com , for sending us this kool litterbox.

Purrs,
Creative Timo

Well finally Meowmy has changed my weight on this page from 14 to 13 pounds. It's about time. I'm exactly 13.2 pounds now. I was stuck at 13.4 for a while. At my heaviest I was 16 pounds, OMC. I feel so much better now.
Purrs,
Featherweight Timo

 

MORE Greyhounds

May 21st 2009 5:32 pm

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.

Jealous Timo

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.

 

A special Greyhound

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,
Timo

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.

 

Hair Day

May 9th 2009 3:39 pm
[ View A Comments ]

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.
Timo
