I just read about Bumpurr. Mom is crying. Of course we feel sad & we feel so awful for anyone that has lost a kitty, but Bumpurr was a special part of my life, because in a search on HCM, one of his postings came up, and that is how we even found Catster & how to fight this awful disease. I am glad that his momma was with him when he left for the bridge, and I know he is bounding around free. I also hope that Lisa & Bump can feel all of the love from so many kitties that they helped. Goodnight my friend, sleep well.

ok so apparently Smitty is on a diet - he has special food to help his crystals for right now, and he gets a measured amount each day & that is it - vet wants him to lose 1-2 pounds. I have always been a lanky cat and I don't really eat treats, so I never had to watch my weight. Mom keeps his extra food in a 2nd tupperware container on the bottom shelf of the entertainment unit. Sometime during the night on Friday, I managed to get the lid off the container. (hey I'm a talented guy) and Mom believes that Smits & I gorged ourselves, and here is why. EVERY morning around 6am we are just about dancing on Mom's head for breakfast. Maizy did her polite meow (yea so she says) and us guys were not around. Mom got Maizy her breakfast, and gave Smitty his breakfast - which he barely touched. Woah says Mom - Smitty are you sick? Smitty wisely kept his yap shut. I then strolled up around 10 am and picked at my food. Mom went to go check the mail, and she saw it - OPEN container, lid nicely set right next to it. She asked The Dad & our human bro if they gave us food. NOPE. So knowing that Maizy would not do that, and Smitty is too polite...well the jig was up. At some point I was called a little stinker...but I did not poot.....I guess it was cuz I hepped my self. Now the food has been moved into a container that does not have a tab on the lid (Mom figured out I clawed at the tab & popped it open) So Mom said "thanks alot Tig - all the progress Smitty made, you just undid! ARGGH" oh well, my crime spree was fun while it lasted!! BURP!!

Well, I passed the 1 year mark for the first time I totally blocked up & was in e-vet last Easter Day. I blocked again 10 days later, so mom says she will feel much better in another 10 days. It seems like we all have had issues with this problem, although Maizy just has very alkaline & concentrated wee. Mom is frustrated as to what causes this, and is going to dig into some research.
After all the whining I did, mom offered me a teeny bite of ham, and I sniffed it & walked away. Mom says I just wanted her to know that I must have it if I wanted it, to be at my beck & call. Anyways happy spring everyone, and thanks to all the gifties! Prob won't be on anymore today, mom has to take The Dad to get a tooth pulled..poor dad...


sweet spring

We want to send you all wishes for a happy springtime, whatever you may celebrate. I had a great day so far - got some new chicken food this morning - it was ok - sat in the kitchen window that was open in the sun & nibbled on some cat grass mom has sitting right there. Got a good scritchin, napped, then mom took me outside for about 1/2 hour to stroll in the yard. Now, I am about to nap again while she is cooking some ham & sweet potatoes. It has been a quiet relaxy day. Human brother is working, then going by his girlfriend, and human sister is in Seattle, but she called so mom is happy. Human brother made an excellent dinner for us all yesterday..potatoes with truffle oil, veal roast stuffed with spinach & goat cheese, and baby said she was about to faint it was so yummy. So maybe I will get a teeny bite of ham today. Hoping that everyone has a wonderful day & let's hope that spring will be a time of fresh new things, and good news for us all. oooh and word has it that The Dad has been at the shop working (FINALLY) on our cat tree!!
plus a big thank you to all our friends that sent pretty egg gifties for us.


glorious box & a stupid washing machine

Saturday The Dad got a new tv for the front room. The old one finally kicked it after being repaired & many years of use. I don't know where they put the pictures in these new fangled things, cause the old one was a big square thing full of pictures inside it and this one is skinny - where do the pictures come from? Mom says "that is technology Tig" ...however, being a box connoisseur, it came with this wonderful thin, tall box. It was laying on it's side on the floor, and The Dad went to pick up the box, and he said, "why is this so heavy?" to Mom. THAT'S CUZ THERE WAS A TIGGER IN IT!!! I darted in & out & played on top of that box all evening, until The Dad said it had to go out. Now if I can get Mom to buy me one of those kitty videos.....

Yesterday, Mom was cleaning the basement starting on her annual "throw stuff out" binge, and while we were working in the laundry room, I thought I would jump on the washer to supervise, but I guess I did not judge so well, cause I slipped & could not catch anything with my claws, and I fell off the washer on my side on the floor. Mom came running over to see if I was ok. I walked a little slow, but was jumping around by last night. She had said I was going to the vet if I was still sore, but I am ok - no worries.
So boxes = good, washer machines =bad.


mardi gras!

Today is the day mom makes the yummy smelling soup. Usually she makes chicken & andouille sausage, but this year The Dad requested seafood gumbo. So that means there won't be any taste of chicken for me, but maybe I will try a shrimp with Smitty. Anyways - this means spring is not far away, so everyone party on today!


Ahh- sweet cupid!

I am not usually a romantical cat, but it seems that we all need a day to feel all squooshy. To all of our friends, you are so special to us and we wish you a wonderful day. Please know that we think of all of you. For those we don't know as well, we hope that we can remedy that too! HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!!
and a special wish for my Valentine girl Kaci!! xoxo

I am a manly cat & maybe not so good at mushy stuff, but I stayed up all night to write my Valentine a poem. Smitty says it sounded good to him - so here goes:

My Lovely Kaci Sunshine
I think you are so very neat
You are totally more than sugar sweet
From the tip of your freckled pink nose
All the way to your tiny toes
Your orangey fur
Makes me purr
I am so glad that you are mine
My very special valentine

purrs, love The Tigman

thanks all for the diary wishes!
I apologize for the sideways picture. I meant to flip it before I put it on Tiggie's page, and I meant it for exercise, yeah, for a stiff neck....yeah.. it's therapeutic....
Well, it is a lovely day in Chi-town, at least 53 & sunny, so I am taking a break from work & Tiggie gets a stroll outside before it drops to 20 on Thursday.

ok the picture is posted with Tig's pics of my action figure!!!
I wanted to put it on my little shelf, but I almost hate to open the package. Anyways - have fun with the quiz! I will proudly admit that I can answer yes to quite a few!!

*Do you get excited when you hear a can opener?
*Do you think cats are smarter than people?
*Do you feel Tom is more talented than Jerry?
*Do you have more cats than ex-boyfriends?
*Do you bring new boyfriends home so the cats can meet them?
*Do you later break up with them because the cats weren't impressed?
*Do you spend more on doctor bills for your cats than for yourself?
*Do you buy the ice cream your cats prefer instead of the kind you like?
*Can you tell your cats apart by the roughness of their tongues?
*Have you ever warned a guest not to sit on a specific piece of furniture because it belongs to the cats?
*Do you own more than one piece of clothing with a cat on it?
Do you have a website devoted to your cats? Do you have a website for each cat?
*Do you spend more on Christmas presents for your cat than for your family?
*Do you buy more than one kind of cat food because a few of your cats are picky eaters?
*Have you ever had to explain to a police officer that the stuff in the bag is really catnip?
*Do you feel that the ancient Egyptian tradition of cat worship is the one true religion?
*Is the sheet of instructions for watching your cats while you're on vacation longer than a page? Two pages? What vacation?

If you answered yes to 7 or more of these questions, you may be a crazy cat person!!

Have an awesome rest of the weekend everybuddy!! purrs... Tiggie's mom Renee
