Hope all my pals up in da northeast are doing ok. I heard on da TV that y'all are supposed to get snow - hope everyone will be ok. Here in Texas, I am soaking up the sunspots. We don't always have such nice weather in November, so I am making the most of it. I've been trying to rotate throughout the house during the day - always trying to get some sun.
I'm still doing really good - meowing a lot and eating really good. Sometimes, my humans have a hard time believing I am nearing 20. But they do seem to get a little freaked out when I hide, like today when I was hiding in the sunroom. But there's no way I'm going to give up being boss cat around here, I have 2 rowdy boycats and 2 crazy westies to control and they need someone to boss them around! And I'm just the cat to do it.

So it's been a while since I wrote a diary entry. I've been busy keeping all these animals in line - now I have 2 dogs, 2 cats, and 4 people to boss around! But I think I am doing a pretty good job.
Charlie seems to be adjusting more and more and is getting more relaxed. He hardly ever hisses at me anymore and him and Maurice can sit together and be nice now. I still get to steal some of his food sometimes, so that is still working out for me.
Last night was so embarrassing. I was trying to lay down a newbie right by the garage door near where my litter box is and one of the humans saw me. So she picked me up and put me in the box and made me poop in the box! I was mad, that was not where I had wanted to poop! And talk about embarrassing! I sulked for a while, but she fed me this morning, so I guess that makes up for it.
Hope all you kitties are having a nice fall. It's cooled down a little here and is getting cloudy all the time. It's still in the 80s though, but in Texas that's fall weather! MOL MOL!

So I am back to being a bad girl and peeing wherever I please! I think it is pretty fun, but apparently the humans don't think that me using the living room as my personal litter box is that much fun. How would they know? They've never even tried it, MOL MOL!
In other news, it was my daddy's birthday today. He had a pretty nice birthday and got some food that looked pretty yummy. Speaking of yummy looking food, last night the humans had pizza. Well, pizza sounds pretty good so I climbed up on the counter and tried to help myself. Now I've got the nickname Garfield! MOL!
Hope all y'all are having fun being bad. ;)

I got tagged by my lovely friend Anna in the Who Are You Really tag game, so these are my answers.
1) Tell me your funny Christmas story.
I'd never really bothered the tree or any decorations. But one year that tree was just too tempting. See, I used to get to go outside so I know all about what trees are good for. And my humans had got a real tree, not one of those boring fake ones. So I climbed that tree. But it wasn't as steady as the ones outside and it tipped right over! I was ok and only a few ornaments bit the dust, but I learned my lesson about climbing trees that are inside. They tip over!
2) Where's your favorite hiding place when playing hide and go seek?
I have lots of good places, but my favorite is the dining room which is being used for storage. Lots of fun places to hide in there!
3) What did you dream of being as a young kit?
Being Queen of the World and a mighty huntress! And I've achieved my goals!
4) What's your favorite hobby? Anything goes.
5) What's your one "bad habit" that you love and your Mom hates?
As y'all know, I used to be into inappropriate peeing - spraying and all that stuff. But since my momma took the lid off my box, I've ended that bad habit. But I still end up missing the box sometimes because I don't want to squat down to do my business. At 19, these joints aren't quite what they used to be, so the humans should just get over and clean in it up without the whining. That's what slaves are for.
6) If you could go anywhere in the world where would you go?
Somewhere with lots of sunspots and lots of birdies to hunt.
7) What is your guilty pleasure? Food, skirts and suits or cars? What?
Food. I am all about the food! At one point in my life, I even weighed 18 pounds - which is quite a lot for a little girl like me that should weigh 9.
8) What is your favorite make believe monster? And yes girls, unicorns and fairies are included. Post a pic of this mysterious beast.
Well, Charlie already used Maurice, MOL! So I'll use a make believe monster and go with the Bakeneko.
I Think The Same Picture Works
9) What is the one dreaded thing you have to do at home? Babysitting, taking baths, entertaining guests....what is your dread?
I don't like when strangers come in my home. I go hide.
10) I’m not so sure if Zach and Zoe are going to have coed ships this year or not, but in any case, which ship would you want to be on: Zach’s, or Zoe’s?
Sorry Snack Pack Zach, but I'll be sailing on the Blood Thirsty Princess with my pal Zoe.

I was not cleaning Charlie's face and giving him kitty kisses or whatever lies he has been telling you. Did you really think I would do that?? Come on pals, you know me better than that! He just had a little Fancy Feast on his fur, and well, you know me, I am not about to let Fancy Feast go to waste! It's not my fault he's a messy eater. I swear, there was no kitty kissing involved!
But as for brothers, he is pretty ok. He respects my place on the bed and doesn't try to head bop me (unlike certain black and white cats I am forced to deal with). And even though there are now 3 cats in the house, my food supply hasn't diminished, so I guess it is all going ok. Just as long as everyone keeps knowing how the queen is. MOL, it's ME!

So, on Monday, my girl moved back home. And she brought her dog Whitley. But she also bought another cat! So this is this Charlie cat I've been hearing about. Well, so far, he is ok I guess. I hissed him a little to show him who's boss, but he seems kinda shy and scared. He pretty much sticks to her room, but has started to come out a little more.
I guess he's not too bad for another cat. At least he knows I'm boss, unlike that black and white marauder, Maurice. Charlie even let me steal his Fancy Feast, so I guess if I have to have another brother, he is an ok one to have. Tonight I slept on my girl's bed next to him for about an hour. But when he woke up, he freaked out at me being there and had to do a little growl and run away! MOL!!! Goofy boys!

Hope everycat is having a happy 4th of July! It has been hot here. One of our air conditioners (we have one on each side of the house) went out last night, so it has been warm inside too! I don't mind the heat too much, but the humans don't seem to like it too much.
I'm still being a lap kitty. I'm always sitting in someone's lap now, my momma says it's like I've had a personality change. Hey, it just took me 19 years to discover how much I like laps. Plus, you get more pets when you are sitting in a lap.
I've been putting up with Maurice the Crazy Cat ok. Most the time he pretty much leaves me alone, but sometimes he just starts acting insane. Last night he had to be locked up in his room because he was being such a crazy. And that new brother Charlie is supposed to come here at the end of this month. I think I'm gonna be overrun with boycats, I just hope this one isn't quite as rambunctious. I'll guess I'll find out soon enough!
Hope everycat has a pawsome 4th!

Yeah, you heard it. I've now decided, for the first time in 19 years, to be a lap kitty. Hey, a girl has a right to change her mind, right? And who wants to miss out on all those snuggles and pets. I am not happy if I am not in a lap now. And I used to never be in laps. The humans are saying maybe I forgot I don't like laps, MOL! I know I've just changed me mind. Got to keep those people on their toes!
Things are going pretty well with Maurice. We've been getting along pretty good - but I here there's going to be a new brother named Charlie showing up here in about a month. Go send him a friend request if you haven't already, it's going to be his birthday tomorrow!

Do any of you like to play hide and seek with your pawrents? This weekend, I was playing hide and seek with my daddy. My momma was out of town visiting my oldest girl down in Austin. He couldn't find me, so he sent my momma a text message saying that. And she freaked out! Everyone gets worried about me playing hide and seek for some reason, something about me being old. But I like playing hide and seek. My youngest girl, whose back from college, did eventually find me - I was hiding in the dining room (it's full of all this stuff right now so it is a great place to hide). MOL MOL!
I'm adjusting to Maurice being back home. He is not being too big of a brat - well, not compared to how he can be! MOL! At first I was guarding my food bowl from him, but I'm not anymore since he's not being too bad about stealing my food.
If anyone hasn't sent Charlie a friend request yet, please do so! He's my oldest girl's new cat she adopted. Thanks! My oldest girl just finished up doing my summer page for me. I do miss the music though.

Hey kitties, I have got a new kitty for you to be friends with. His name is Charlie and he joined my family today. My oldest girl adopted him, she is down in Austin with Whitley for the summer. So I don't have to put up with him yet - MOL MOL! He had been abandoned a couple of years ago at the apartment complex she lives at. People had been feeding him and petting him, but she thought he deserved a real home. She took him to the vet today and got him his shots and found out that he is pretty healthy. He's underweight, but I have a feeling some Fancy Feast will cure that - MOL MOL! I heard he is kinda shy, so maybe he will know to respect my authority when and if he comes to live here in August (da oldest girl still hasn't found a job yet and her one-year job is ending then). So if y'all can go make him feel welcome to Catster, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks!!
