Birthday and Other Exciting News!

On Wednesday I will be 5 years old. Mom is on vacation so we are going to spend some time together and she will also make us something yummy for supper and that we will have a little party.

Turning 5 means a few things. Mom expects me to behave because now I am older and wiser. (I am usually pretty good, so this shouldn't be too tough). Being 5 means a trip in the fall to the cardiologist for a re-check. (I have been doing well, with no symptoms and no medications).

In other exciting news, it is time for Aunt Anita to come stay with us. Mom is going on vacation and Aunt Anita will be coming here. She was over for a visit the other night and we had a treat party with her. Aunt Anita's husband has been very sick lately, please give a little purr for him. We are worried that he might end up in the hospital while Mom is away and poor Aunt Anita will be running to her own home, to the hospital and to our house.

Mom is going to miss some of the pirate festivities here, but she will have wi-fi, so she hopes to check-in mornings and evenings. How about this....
Mom is going on a pirate cruise on the Kalmar Nyckel
She promised to take lots of pictures and to learn some new pirate vocabulary.

Well got to get to bed. The big day is coming.

We got us a New Ride for when we want to go out Tom Catting around. Mom's cousin said that we can borrow it, as long as we remember to fill the tank up when we bring it back. I think I might swing down and pick up Zachery and Gump and take it for a spin this weekend. I think we have room for one or two more. Who wants to come for a ride?


Mom has a new name for me!

Mom said she has a new name for me. It is because I am good at my second job. (You might recall that my first job is eating food so that we can recycle cans for $). My second job is "Mouser extraordinaire"!

While Mom was on the computer this morning, she heard another mouse scurrying around. She ran upstairs and called for me and Rusty to come to work. We got right on the job and within minutes had results.

Take a Look

Tomorrow Mom is going to try and seal up the spots were they might be getting in. Oh well, then I will have more time for my primary job.

By the way, can anyone tell me how to put in pics from photobucket, that you just mouse over them and they appear? Mouse over? Where? Ooops, not that kind! MOL!

Oh, and can you guess my new name?


Falling behind!

No, I didn't fall behind the couch or the refrigerator, but I have fallen behind on my thank you notes. We have had a crazy few weeks at our house and at work and Mom just didn't have alot of computer time lately.

I want to thank everyone for making my "Cat of the Week" time so wonderful. I made some new friends and heard from some old ones too. I got tons of presents and pictures and just felt so much love from all of you. It was absolutely the best week ever!

Mom is still working on my thank you notes, but we want you to know how much we appreciated every kind gesture.

Did you see? Our buddy Kringle is Cat of the Day today and Fearless is Diary of the Day! How awesome is that! How sweet it was to see them there in the spotlight! Party!


Who Are You Really?

My best buddy Zach was helping me celebrate COTW and did an interview with me last week. Out of that interview has grown a massive game of tag that is spreading around Catster. We want to know.....Who Are You Really? Answer the following questions and tag five others to play.

1) Tell me your funny Christmas story:
My very first Christmas, I un-decorated the tree on Christmas Eve. I took off the bottom rows of lights and all the balls I could reach. Santa came and had to re-trim the tree or else I would have been in trouble in the morning. He was surprisingly more jolly than Mom would have been to see the tree like that. He gave me a little pat on the head and let me have a sip of the milk Mom had left out for him. And then in a wink, he was gone.

2) Where's your favorite hiding place when playing hide and go seek?
Don't tell the others, but I like to go behind the couch in the living room.

3) What did you dream of being as a young kit?
We mentioned this in the interview with Zach. Most times I wanted to be the Sheriff, although, every once in a while, I wanted to be the bad guy all dressed in black. I love my westerns!

4) What's your favorite hobby? Anything goes.
Does watching TV count. I like to watch cartoons, but I don't get to do it very often.

5) What's your one "bad habit" that you love and your Mom hates?
Biting Mom's ankles in the morning after her shower. She is hopping around trying to get dressed and I am right there, nipping at her and weaving around her legs. She says that she hates when I do that, but I think she secretly enjoys some attention from me.

6) If you could go anywhere in the world where would you go?
I want to go out west, maybe see the Grand Canyon, visit Texas and go to a
Dude Ranch!

Dude Ranch

7) What is your guilty pleasure? Food, skirts and suits or cars? What?
I do like food, I sure do like girls, but still am kinda shy around them. I would have to say my bow ties, I love dressing up in my classy grey suit!

8) What is your favorite make believe monster? And yes girls, unicorns and fairies are included. Post a pic of this mysterious beast.

I don't know what it is called, but it scares the willlies out me is a picture

9) What is the one dreaded thing you have to do at home? Babysitting, taking baths, entertaining guest....what is your dread?

Hmmmmmm, that is tough. I'm pretty easing going, I would have to say baths and showers, I won't even hang out in the bathroom when Mom gets the water running.

10) We are going to have coed ships this year so which ship do you want to be on mine, or Zoes. Gris will be having a small ship (more like a dingy) for all our kits to be on.

I was on Zach's ship last year and we had a awesome time. told him right away that I wanted to go with him again this year.

I would like to tag
1. Samoa
2. Fearless
3. Orange Ruffy
4. Timmy
5. Lacey
and you, come on, play along!


Cat of the Week? Me? Oh My!

Mom was at a meeting tonight and got in later than expected. She tossed in a load of laundry and just thought she would check her email. She couldn't imagine why I was getting presents on a Monday night. (I told her it is because I am lovable and handsome and a good mouser, but she wasn't buying it!) There it was further down the page, my notice from Catster.

I have to tell you, I am so thrilled. I have to admit, I have always hoped to be Cat of the Week sometime, but never in a million years did I expect to. I am honored and ecstatic and have River teaching me the "Happy Skylar Dance" later tonight.

Well gotta go. Mom said we could have a little treat party to celebrate and that she would make me dinner on Thursday.

You know what it best about this week? Celebrating it with all my friends! I wasn't on here long and didn't have many friends when I was Cat of the Day. So having you guys here to celebrate with me makes it all the more special!


We got a job that pays money!

August 4th 2012 11:50 am
[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ]

Here's how I see it anyway.....

Our job is to eat canned food. Yesterday was Payday! I like my job!

Mom's job is to buy the food. Serve the food. Rinse the cans. Save the cans. And take the cans to the recycling center and pick up our money.

Mom has been saving our cat food cans (the ones that are not magnetic).
She had four big garbage bags full of them, so she tossed them in the truck and went to the scrap yard.

She got $18 bucks for our hard work! That will buy lots more canned food!

Oh Where are My Manners....
Thank you all for the Delicious cakes! It was a Cake Frenzy and alot of fun, both giving and receiving. My freezer is well stocked and I think I got all the frosting out of my whiskers. I know we have been down on Catster lately for the fleas and some of the content, so this was a nice surprise! Thanks Catster!

Mom's note: Not all reycling centers will take cat food cans. We luckily have two scrap yards in town. One takes the cans, the other does not. Our town also recycles so the magnetic ones ( 9-Lives Cans are considered to be rolled steel, I believe) can get recycled, we just don't get anything for them. It isn't a huge anount of money, but we will set it on the side and get something nice for the cats, they earned it.


I've Been Framed

July 25th 2012 7:28 pm

Yes I have been framed! No, my sisfurs didn't squeal on me. No did my brothers rat me out. I was framed as a piece of art!

Mom bowls in the summer with a guy who does these drawings. He is about 80 years old and retired, but bowls and works out at the gym and loves to draw. About two years ago he was showing Mom his sketch book. He had portraits and pictures of kids, and pictures of dogs, but no cats. Mom said, "Hey, where are the cat pictures?" He said that he never drew one, nobody ever asked him before. Mom asked if he wanted to try one and he agreed. So I am not just a cat, I was his guinea pig!

A few weeks later he came in with my complete matted pencil drawing. Mom had tears in her eyes, it turned out beautiful. He wouldn't take any money for it, but Mom got him a gift card for art supplies from Michael's. Mom has been looking in stores for the perfect frame, and there I sat, just matted and sitting on the piano. We just had a Michael's open up in our town and they had a really good framing sale so Mom went out there. The lady who does the framing helped her pick everything out. She just got the call that it was done tonight and ran out after work to pick it up.

Now the big question is .......where to hang me!

PS. Rusty and I are still hunting!


A Hunting We Will Go.....

July 25th 2012 6:11 am
[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ]

How bout that? Mom let me go mouse hunting with Rusty in the basement. We tried yesterday and couldn't catch the mouse. Rusty and I worked together to try and flush him out of his hiding spot, but no luck. We tried separately last night. Rusty took a turn, and he came up disappointed. I tried my luck, but came up empty pawed. Mom let us try again after breakfast. This time she kept the lights off. And we did it! Rusty and I saved Mommmy from the big scary mouse! We made sure she would know that we were successful. We knew that she would come down to use the computer this morning, so we left it on the carpet right by her chair. She didn't scream as loud as we expected when she found it!

We may be getting called back to hunt some more. Mom thinks that she heard more "mouse noises". "Mouse noises?" Whatever happened to the saying "Quiet as a mouse"? Either Mom has really good hearing or we have a very noisy mouse! MOL!

I'll keep you posted.
