I almost missed Santa Paws!

Santa Paws came to our house on Christmas Eve. When Mom came back from church there were presents in our living room. Mom wanted to change her clothes first and then we were going to open gifts. Ivan, Rusty and I had been sleeping in the kitchen and wanted to explore the cellar so we went down there. When Mom was ready, she let us up, but she forgot that I was done there too. So they they all were, in the living room opening gifts. Mom though I was upstairs and she called for me twice, but the Christmas songs were on and she didn't hear me meow that I was downstairs, Halfway through opening presents, Mom realized it and there I was on, the top step, patiently waiting. She scooped me up and hugged and kissed me and brought me in the living room.

Santa Paws was good to us. We got a bunch of little toys, furry/feathered mice, and a new wand toy that chirps. When we were opening our cat presents, Percy pulled out the pack of the furry/feathered mice and took off with them. He carried them upstairs still attached to the cardboard. Murphy got a catnip cigar (she loves catnip!) I got a sweater. Grandma gave us bags of treats too.

The other big highlight is the HAM! We loves the HAM! Mom gives us all a taste. Even shy little Daisy will take it right out of Mom's hand.

Hope you all had a good Christmas. How did you celebrate?

Please stay safe in this weather. Tornadoes, Snow, Ice. Wow, pretty wicked stuff.


We're Back!

Well that wasn't too bad. The repairman came this morning and disconnected a jack that went bad in our house. It is not one that we have ever used so we didn't ask him to re-wire it. Rusty and I helped him when he went down the basement to check out the connections. He didn't seem to mind. He checked all of our jacks and made sure we had an internet connection before he left.

On Thursday night the plumber was here to clean our furnace. Mom says that we have had enough people in and out of this house for a while. I say bring it on.....a stranger is just a friend that you haven't met yet!

Mom baked cookies all day today and tonight. The kitchen is warm and smells so good. Tomorrow she has to frost cookies and bake a batch of peanut butter ones.

See you soon!


Excuse us while we are experiencing technical- difficulties....

Mom is at work today and has a chance to write in my diary for me. We are currently without phone and internet at home because of a problem with our phone line. For a while, our service was on and off and now it is gone entirely. The repairman is coming on Saturday so hopefully we will be back .....but just in case......two things...maybe three...

They are finished working on the house. No more banging and it looks really nice and is toasty warm too.

Thank you for the gifts and comments yesterday when I was a diary pick. Mom was mad that she missed it.

In case we do not get back right away.... we send you all our best wishes for a very Merry Christmas!

Hope to talk to you all again soon....

Chickens! I live in a house full of chickens!

Everybody is hiding out this morning, except me. I want to know what is going on. The doorbell rang this morning and everybody scattered. It was the guys coming to do the insulation in the house. We are getting blown-in insulation and new siding on part of our house after we had the damage from the hurricane. The guys are drilling holes in the side of the house and Mom says it sounds like they are going to come right through the walls. I am keeping pace with them and moving to wherever they are drilling. I sit and stare at the wall. Rusty is just calming laying in his bed and taking it all in. The others are hiding upstairs under beds. Chickens!


New Kit on the block!

Mom got to meet the new kit on the block today. The woman down the street from us who helps feed the ferals and takes them to be spayed is his Mommy. She had brought in a litter from a semi-feral cat (We believe that she is the sister to Ivan and Percy's Mom) She found homes for the kittens in the litter and took the Mom to be spayed. Well, one of the families decided that "they didn't really want a cat, they would rather a dog", so they gave him back. (I give them points for not just putting him out on the street). So our neighbor took him in. She never had a housecat before and she was very nervous, but she is doing great with him. She named him Simba and he loves to nap on her when he is not zooming around the house. He is 3 months old and has the furriest ears I have ever seen. He is orange and white and looks very similar to our Roni. She got to pet him. What a cutie pie.

Mom took over a fleece slumber ball that we have but never used and some toys. Even some kitten toys that we have outgrown. Although it was funny, Mom was digging in our toybox and was pulling stuff out and then we decided that we liked some of the things. Mom does rotate our toys, but obviously not often enough! MOL!

Mom cat went to the vet to be spayed and she is boarding her for right now, till the kitten gets adjusted to the house. It is her goal to bring the Mom-cat (Tangie) home to live with them too. She doesn't know if it will all work out but she is willing to try hard to make it work.

We purr that Tangie will stay inside and get along with her son.


And the Cupboard Was Bare

Old Mama Cat Lady went to her cupboard
to fetch her poor kitties some squishies
And when she got there
The cupboard was bare
And so the poor kitties had none!

She went to the bakers
to buy us some breads
but when she came back
we stood on our heads

She went to the market
To buy us some fish
but when she got back
we had hidden our dish

She went to the seaport
To get us a whale
But when she came back
We were reading her mail

She went to the distributor
To get us some brews
When she came back
We were watching the news get the message. Today Mom went in our cupboard to get us breakfast and there were only two big cans left and a few small cans of Fancy Feast. We usually have an extra box that we keep big cans in and that was empty too. Things have been crazy busy and Mom didn't get to the grocery store last week. Tonight she has a meeting and then has to go for Grammy's groceries. On her way back, she promises to replenish our stock.

Does this ever happen at your house? Or is my mommy being derelict in her duties to us? Hmmmm She better shape up! MOL!

Well the results are in. We went to our polling place (the scratching pole, that is)

We had a mini election at our house and here are the results. Some are just as the analysts predicted and others were quite surprising.

King of the Castle (okay, so kings aren't elected, but still, stay with me here....) Rusty

Queen and Matriarch of the Cat House --- Mrs M

Speaker of the House --- Ivan (you should here him yammer in the background when Mom is on the phone)

Sheriff --- Skylar (in PA a sheriff is elected, not appointed)

Auditor General --- Maedia (She sees all and knows all and keeps us all in line!)

Attorney General--- Skittles (she can have an argument for everything)

Treasurer --- Roni non nonsense, frugal and can keep to a budget

Court Jester --- Percy he had the most humorous ads!

Secretary of the Exterior --- Daisy (for her running commentary on the nature outside of our kitchen window)


What a night!

Things were going pretty well last night. Our lights flickered a few times and we shut down the computer and started to get ready for bed. And then Bingo...the lights went out. We got out our flashlights and battery candles and got ready for bed. But who could sleep? The wind was howling, the house was shaking? We could hear sirens at times in the distance. Mom was on the bed with me, Rusty, Ivan and Skittles, sometimes she would start to doze and a gust of wind would wake her up.

Around 1:30 this morning, there was a huge banging noise. It was pouring rain and the wind was gusting. Mom thought it was the porch chairs. They are very heavy and protected by the porch so Mom had not brought them in. The Moms got up and dressed and went to bring the chairs into the back porch. But they found that it was not the chairs. It was aluminum siding being stripped away from our house and blown towards our neighbors house and our back yard. Big 8- 10 foot sections, just peeling away. It was frightening. Mom was able to gather most of the siding that had already fallen. She was afraid it would be picked up by the wind and smash a window on our house or the neighbors. Other Mom was holding the flashlight and watching that no loose pieces were going to break free and hit Mom. Mom also realized that the wind had ripped the siding from the house where we have an outdoor electrical outlet. There was the outlet and the siding dangling from the house. Our power was out so it wasn't an issue, but Mom was worried what would happen when the power was turned back on. When she came in, she went down the basement and turned off our main. She was hoping to disconnect the outlet in the morning and just cap the loose wires and pull them back into the house till we could get it repaired.

The power was still not on this morning. Alot of our city was without, except the block right next to us. They must be on another line. Mom heard repair trucks around 11AM and she waved the one man over. He looked at our outlet and said to leave it connected. There are no bare wires and the assembly is waterproof. It should not cause a problem.

Our power came back on and now we have light and heat. It was getting very chilly in our house. It is only 41 outside today and still rainy and windy (but not as strong as last night)

Mom was terrified during the night and can't imagine what it was like for those even closer to the storm. We saw the images today on the news and are so saddened at the tremendous losses that people have realized. We purr for all who have been impacted by Sandy.

Has anyone heard from Kaci, Orange Ruffy or Toki? We hope they are ok.


The Results Are In.....

The results are in........

We have come to many conclusions.....

First, the blood test results are in. Dr. B called on Tuesday night and said that my blood work is perfect. He worries about my hemoglobin count, but it was in the normal range again. So all is good.

Second, the results of who broke the glass in the kitchen today. This is a tie. It may have been Daisy or Roni and maybe, just maybe, it was me. But you have to understand. Mom had apples on the counter and there were fruit flies. Whoever, and I am not admitting to anything, whoever broke the glass was only trying to help Mom get rid of the pesky fruit flies. Mom checked all of our paws and we are fine. No cuts.

Third the results are in......and it is u-nan-i-mouse! We want the heat on. It sure is chilly at night.

Fourth the results are in....Mom got a postcard from our local vet that it is time for check-ups and shots. We took a vote and Skittles and Murphy are going!

That's it for now. See you soon. Hugs,
