ok Mom had to fly in here real quick, since she has just spent an hour & 1/2 browsing here, and did not even get to everything, and she is SUPPOSED to be working on the end o the year stuff for her & The Dad's business. Just gotta tell ya about a giftie she got

Our human brother is kind of a wizenhimer - and loves to tease mom all the time - so he found somewhere online a "Crazy Cat Lady" action figure with 5 cats! It is so darn funny. There is a quiz on the back to tell if you are indeed a crazy cat lady - mom says we will post it either tomorrow or Saturday. Plus charge the camera & try to take a pic to post. too funny...and mom says
mews, Tig


tis the season

I want to send a huge thank you to everyone for all the good wishes & presents! I tried to send personal thanks, but if I inadvertantly missed anyone, please know that we loved reading all the good wishes! It rained ALL day today hiss, and it was about 52 degrees. In mid December - in Chicago. We certainly will pay for it at some point I am sure. They predict much snow, I will enjoy being able to prowl the yard while I can. I will certainly pop back in before the holiday so I can wish everyone good tidings! purr again, and really thank you so much.

Well I had a fabulous week! We did not know about my special honor until Tuesday, but to celebrate I went outside, and even though it was kind of cold, it was still fun. We had some lake effect snow, and for those of you not in the Chicago lake area, it is the big ol fluffy flakes. I was standing in the yard (on my leash of course) and the flakes were fluttering down, Mom said "Tiggie you look like you are in a giant snowglobe!" and of course of all times, no camera...argh. But I also got a tiny lick of whipped cream from the spray can....ooooo heaven in a can I tell ya. I got a massage from mom.....yeah, that's the spot mom, and I got my canned rabbit food too. I had a very good week. Mom says that tomorrow we will try & catchup all the thank yous for the thoughtful comments & gifts. I am humbled to be a cat of the week. Thank you all my friends! purrs, and a little burp...Tiggie

imagine my suprise, when mom logged on to see what to do about a problem, and I see that I am COTW! We did not get a chance to log in yesterday, so holy cow what a suprise!!! Mom says for sure I will get a longer walkie today, even though it is cold. I kind of like to jump around outside when it is a little cold. Well thank you to everyone!!

The problem we have, gotta find out the best way to handle finding a piece of plastic/latex in a can of Friskies food for the outside gang.

IN the meantime, thank you my friends! I am so flattered!

Some good news! This morning, guess who was waiting for breakfast? REAPPEARING KITTENS!! ok little ones, I wish you could tell me where you were. Did you get stuck somewhere? No ears clipped, so I know there was no TNR. They were starving, and ate like piggies. That was why I was so worried, they have not missed a breakfast EVER. So at least it was a great start to a very cold day!!

Had a normal Turkey day round here. Even the strays got a few bites of turkey. Sunday morning, mom went out & fed the 3 kittens & 2 adults, all were waiting by the back door as usual. Yesterday morning, only Fluff & Rocky - the mom & dad were out there. All 3 kittens were not there. She went by the alley & called - no kits. By last nite they should have at least been in the yard looking for a snack - no kits. This morning, still no kittens. Looked in the garage, and shed just in case they ran in there when The Dad got the Christmas stuff out. Mom cannot figure out how all 3 of them (they area bout 6 months old) just disappeared. They kind of stuck together, but still....all 3? She hopes that maybe someone that TNR took them - as there is supposed to be someone in the area. Otherwise - how could 3 fast, not overy trusting to anyone but mom - kittens, just disappear? We have looked around, but not a sign. Mom is sad.....that will mean that she lost all 4 kittens within a month.

Thank you my friends for the gotcha day gifties and the summer gifties. Mom also had an issue with the gift store on pirate day, so we could not send any. arrrr. She has been busy helping human sis to pack things for Washington. I managed to get hold of another mousie from the live trap, but mousie had already kicked it while in the trap, so I flipped it around a few times anyways. Now I am too bored to play with the furry toy mousies. We are soooo happy that Ingen was found!!!! yippee!


Ode to Summer

Well it surely has been a while since I have gotten Mom to write. In her defense, she has been busy with Nana's after-surgery care & trying to catch up work, and such. So let me tell you about my summer...
I have enjoyed countless walkies, and I also sat outside while on my leash. It gets hooked to this little pole, but a human is still outside keeping an eye on me. We have this metal live-mouse trap by the garage, and one afternoon, I was fussing by it, so Mom looked inside it, and there was a teeny toad in there. So she set it down & opened it, thinking I would maybe paw or sniff it. OOOOhhh nooo - I grabbed the thing & would not let go. Mom had to actually scruff me & kinda shake me to let it go, and just at that time, it must have spewed it's toadie juices, cause I started to gag & stick my tongue out & spit. Ahhh so then Mom got the bright idea of trying to wash my mouth out. Right - have YOU tried to wash a cat's mouth out...with water?...a cat that does NOT like water? Mom wore more of it than anything, and I was just fine.
A few days later, again, I was by that trap, & Mom saw nothing in there. When she opened it, well, there was a mouse & I got it so fast & ran. Unfortunately I played a little too hard with the mousie, and well, he went to mousie heaven before Mom could get it away from me (I had alot of fun though - Mom sighs)
One Saturday all of a sudden we started to get water seeping in our basement, after a very light rain. This never happens - only once when we had days of rain. It was coming from under the baseboard, and through some small cracks in the floor. Poor Mom shop vac'd every 2 hours round the clock & put towels down for a week until we found out that when the neighbors on the one side abandoned their home, they left the water on in the basement, and there was 6 feet of water in there, and it seeped over to us. It only stopped because some worker guys hooked a gas pump & pumped it out next door. After we have now had to rip out a bunch of tiles, and will have to replace some drywall. But Mom says it is nothing compared to those that have lost everything in the flooding, but it still is pretty crummy.
Right now, our human brother & sister are on a long-planned trip to London. They are very close & worked for this trip for a long time. Next week is our annual end of summer shrimp boil. mmmm perhaps we may get a teeny bite o shrimpies mom? This year it is in honor of our human sister - she is moving far away all the way to Seattle. Far from Chicago! She is hoping to hear on a job at the zoo there. She does environmental education & mammmal education. Momma is very sad, but happy for her too. I have been feeling great - no potty troubles. Except for my little spritzing incident. But Mom is ordering a calming collar & getting some feliway spray to try. I just do not like that feral cat that she is feeding. Well actually there are 2 that get fed, but only one is nervy enough to stroll around MY YARD. Well, I should leave some news for Maizy & Smitty to tell, so I will sign off for now.
A very big thank you for the well wishes & gifties on my gotcha day. Mom says the bestes day was when I ran to her so fast, I almost knocked her down! It was love at first sight!
purrs, a happy toad-licking, mousie-catching Tigger.

well, so far so good for me! My fur is getting shiny again, and I have been flipping and jumping like my old self. I am not sure how long I have to eat the stinky food, but Mom says she will ask the vet. It has been a while since we have been here - although we have grabbed a few sneak-peeks here & there. Our Nana got very sick, and ended up having open heart surgery a couple weeks ago. Mom was at the hospital every day. But Nana is home & doing very well. I even took a nap by her just to keep an eye on her for Mom. I know we have missed many friends special days, and we apologize....sometimes you can only do one thing at a time. Mom got a few awesome pics of me out in the yard, which she will put up soon. In the meantime, hope everyone is having a splendid summer
