Spring chickens

My friends...Spring is in the air. We have seen Robins, the crocus are blooming, the daffodils will bloom soon, and the Spring Chicken is playful. The WHAT? Yes, my brother Rusty, who can really be an old fart, who at 11 years of age thinks he is an old man ...Today is a Spring Chicken. He is watching out the window and seeing all the birds and feeling the warm sun and has gotten in a playful mood. Don't get me wrong...he's not ever really's just that he doesn't play often...he's kinda lazy and cuddly for the most part. Today is another story... he is running around the house playing "Come find me" with Mom. She hides and says "Come find me" and he will go and look for her and then she chases him and the two go off running through the house. Sort of like a game of tag. But even that was not enough...he was playing with toys too. Mom came home to see him batting a ball around the floor. I guess you can call it another side of spring...when the spring chickens come out to play...I think I'll go join him... It looks like fun! Purrs, Skylar


The sheriff of the wild west

Wow, I can't believe a week has gone by since I wrote in my diary! Where does the time go? Speaking of which...Mom has turn the clock ahead tonight so we lose an hours sleep. Maybe we should go to bed earlier tonight. Besides mealtime, i love bedtime! I snuggle by Mom's feet and keep them toasty warm. I usually stay there all night unless the little one are making too much noise playing downstairs. Then I play the role of Sheriff and go downstairs and put a stop to the mayhem. Mom laughs when I do this because there is nothing I actually do. I just go and stand in the middle of the room and give the little ones "the eye". Then I turn around and go back to sleep or whatever else I was doing. Mom thinks we have some kind of silent communication. I don't hiss or growl or meow, but Roni and Maedia will settle down. It sometimes works with Percy and Rusty too. I will hear Rusty growling at Percy when he has had enough of his antics. Time for me to saunter in and break things up. Sometimes Mom will even say..."oh oh here comes the you're in trouble". So maybe in one of those passed nine lives...I lived in the Wild West with Cowboys and bad guys in a dusty old town with a corner saloon. And maybe, just maybe...I was the sheriff! Hmmmm

Mancats and Pink

As promised Mom did go to Petco yesterday. She also went to Petsmart as they are very close to one another. She brought home some crunchy food , Fancy Feast (which was on sale cheaper than the grocery store ever sells she stocked up and with a better variety of flavors too!). She also brough home two small toys. One is an orange fluffy ball (but in a larger size. It is light enough to carry around but too big to accidentally swallow). The other is really cool. It is a 6inch thin tube with feathers on each end. I love it. It spins when you whack it with your paw. You can pick it up and toss it pretty high in the air.
The other thing Mom bought was a bow tie collar! It was not at all what she was looking for, but she didn't want to come home empty handed. It is a pink collar with a tiny black bowtie on the front. Mom took out the bell because it was driving us all nuts. (We don't go outside so we don't need to warn any birds). Mom wanted a bigger bow tie, even one that might clip on a collar would have been fine. She also wanted red! She is going to check out some Etsy shops and see if there is anything out there like that. There must be. If you guys know of anything, please feel free to send me a link in a pawmail.
I wore my new collar without any fuss. I don't usually wear one around the house. In fact...I like me new pink bow tie collar!
But here is the question to you mancats out there...what do you think of the color pink? Am I being to delicate? Will they take back my Mancat Hard Hat... I love my mancat hardhat!
Do the girls like a mancat who can wear pink? Are mean cats gonna tease me for wearing pink? This young fellow needs some advice!
Purrs, Skylar


Good Things Come in Threes!

So the saying goes...I think today will be one of those days!
The first good thing to happen today...Mom went outside to feed "Hunter" a stray that visits our house. While she was outside, she saw and heard geese! A big flock of them heading North! A great sign that spring really is on the way.
The second good thing was that I am a Diary Pick today. Woo hoo! Very exciting and always a thrill!
The third good thing didn't happen yet, but I think it will. Mom is going out today and has promised to stop at know what that means...good things always come in a Petco bag! For those of you who gave fashion advice in my previous diary entry...Mom has promised to keep those comments in mind while she shops. She is going to look for a bow tie for me!
Have a great day my friends! Purrs, Skylar


My Classy Gray Suit! It Suits Me!

My friend Teddy Bearz today wrote a diary entry and mentioned several handsome tuxedo cats! Yes...they are adorable indeed! Then my friendZachery wrote about me not having a subcategory. Rusty loves it when we say he is a "Buff" Tiger stripe. He thinks it means that he has muscles and 6 pack abs! My sister Skittles is a Calico! It's true...I don't have a subCATegory. Zachery said I should be "Classy Gray Suit".

I have to agree with him. I don't have a fancy tuxedo, but I don't really have any formal occasions to go to either. Maybe I can borrow one if I am ever invited somewhere special. My classy gray suit is perfect for trips to the vet and eating dinner with the family. It is wash and wear (I have been in the tub a few times with it on). Food stains wash right off! I can sleep in it and it never wrinkles. I can get on the floor and play with Mom or my little sisters and I have yet to wear any holes in it! And Mom never has to use the lint roller over me to pick up extra cat hair like she does with her own clothes.

I am not one to usually accesorize but it can be brighten up with a collar, a tie, or even a hat! I tried on the red scarf at Christmas and I must say it looked pretty good. I have tried on the purple collar and the pink jeweled one and they both go well with my classy gray suit!

Yes...I live in a family of orange cats. More than once I have asked Mom if I am adopted because I don't look at all like the rest of my family (will save that for another entry). But I do like my classy gray suit! It suits me just fine!

Thanks Zachery, I like my new subCATegory!

Things That Go Bump in the Night!

So we had our heatwave for all of two days her in NEPA! Woo hoo it was 65 on Friday! Today it was 25 Brrrr! And dropping to 15 overnight! Hey 911! Officer, someone stole our warm weather! Make them bring it back....Now!
If it wasn't bad enough that it got cold. It got windy last night and today and tonight. Hence the title... Things That Go Bump in the Night"!
Last night we could hear all kinds of things rolling around outside...soda cans, trash cans, bottles, cardboard boxes. Then there was the banging. We have an awning that sometimes lifts when the wind hits it a ceratin lifted...several times! The garage on the corner has guttering that was brought loose by ice....that was banging! The shed in the alley has a metal roof that lifts up on one corner....that was banging! Plus we have trees all through the neighborhood and the wind would gust through them and make this roaring, moaning noise. We cats were all on the alert last night. We should have taken turns staying up and letting the others sleep. But I think we all stayed up all night! Today, even though it was windy...all we wanted to do was sleep. We would eat, use the box, go back to sleep, get up, eat and repeat. I think because Mom was awake and not bothered by the wind he felt a little safer. Or...we thought it was her turn to guard the house. We guarded all night while she slept...its her turn to return the favor!
That's it for now...I'm going back to bed! Purrs, Skylar


She Said Yes!

This afternoon I asked a special someone to be my Valentine. Her name is Nellie and she said YES! I am bouncing around the house all happy and excited. If I could hum or whistle I would probably be doing that too; but alas I must rely on purring and playing and just being extra happy! We actually have alot in common. We both like milk jug rings and twist ties, both like to be brushed, and we like to eat fancy feast. I have also opened several bags of dry cat food when Mom has brought them home from the store before she was able to put them away. This is a skill that Nellie has as well. Purssonality wise, I think we are both easy going, mellow cats, that enjoy life to its fullest every day. Oh, did I of her nicknames is cutie pie (Mom calls me that sometimes too!) I'm so happy that Nellie said yes. What a great day! Purrs, Skylar


It Was Right Before My Eyes

So yes, the other day I wrote about looking for a valentine and having this goofy crush on a kitty with extra toes who really didn't even know I existed. What was I thinking? I guess it's kinda like all those girls with their Beiber Fever! My buddy, Luke, got me to thinking 'bout what a valentine should be or mean to me. Thanks!
For me, I think I want a valentine that I know or can get to know better. I 'd like to have someone to be my valentine that posts things once in a while so I see how they are doing and in return they might visit my page and leave comments too. I'm still young so I don't think I am ready for a serious girlfriend or to get married or anything like that. This would be first Valentine (if you don't count Mommy who will always have my heart)!
Which leads me to my final thoughts. I'm going to be brave and ask a girl if we can be valentines! A real girl kitty! She's been here all along, and, like a silly; I missed it. She was right here in front of me and I missed it! A very pretty girl, she likes to brighten up stormy days with rainbows, she's updates her page with cute pictures and neat diary entries, she comes to visit my page too. She lives miles away, but we are as close as a pawmail away. She has always been very kind and I always thought she was such a cutie. I hope she doesn't think I am a goof. I hope she says yes! Cross your paws! I'll let you know later..Purrs, Skylar


Too Shy for a Valentine

So Valentine's Day is right around the corner and alot of my buddies are naming their sweethearts. Ahhh... love and romance fills the air. (Sighs) I'd like to ask a certain girl to be my valentine; but everytime I get on her page...I just freeze and can't speak. I don't think she has a valentine. But I don't know if she wants a valentine either. She is really cute...she has this gorgeous fur and pretty eyes and even extra toes. I sent her a rose the other day, but I chickened out and didn't sign my name. She doesn't have a diary and I get all nervous trying to comment on her photos. She has such a nice fluffy tail! Oh the agony...should I ask her?...what if she says "no"?...what if she has a sweetie already? She's three years older than me...does that matter? Oh...she probably doesn't even know I exist...but she is so cute! Oh what's a boy to do? Maybe I'm to shy to have a Valentine... Purrs, Skylar
