Zekie is my sweet Valentine!

Ohh my sweet Zekie sent me a beautiful Valentine! I have been floating all day. We missed being here on actual Valentine's Day because Momma & The Dad went to the camping & RV show, and they found a small camper that is perfect! The current pop-up is a 1978 Starcraft. A bit vintage! Yesterday, our human brother came here, and there was a family dinner with both human children, and they sat in "their" seats so Momma felt like it was looking back in time & she was so happy! Then topping it off was my beautiful Valentine! Today it is sunny, and the snow is starting to melt a bit. And the weatherman is saying Thursday will be in the 50s...huh? weird. Momma does not want it that warm, because then it means all the snow melts, and if the ground is still frozen, then the water can go in the basement....not fun. The basement repairs & a new driveway are on the list of must do this spring. Not fun stuff, but has to be done. Even thought they say things are staying open here, Momma copied things, and we are still forgin ahead with this being my week. Momma said she will take a serious look at the groups we are in, and only sty in the ones that are active & that she can spend time with. It looks cool seeing abunch listed, but in the long run, if you cannot participate, it is not fair to anyone. I willcertainly stay in the Snuggles group - we gave a bunch of blankies to the wonderful place that took Pearl in & found her a home. This is something momma wants to do more of. This week will also be some updates on The Minions (momma's feral colony) purrs to all & a special purr & wink for my Valentine!


Fun? facts about Chicago

ok what with the good news spreading about Catster, I thought you might like some interesting facts that Momma heard on the news channel.

9 out of the last 10 weekends, we have had snow in Chicago
79% of the Great Lakes are covered in ice.
63% of Lake Michigan is iced up - unheard of!

They are using special boats to cut the ice up on Lake Michigan. Momma has lived in Chicago all her life (and she is not a young chick so she says) and has never seen it quite this bad with the cold.

I may be off a few points on those percentages, but well, a kitty girl cannot always be perfect, just most of the time.

Please keep a purr on your whiskers for my little bro Felix. He is facing some pretty hissy stuff and even though I would rather be left alone most of the time, I don't mind him as much as the other two brat-boys that pick on me.

Oh boy did I get into MAJOR trouble Sunday. Mom has really put her foot down with my begging antics. I get no taste of ANYTHING anytime other than my food or treats. Well Mom taped the Bears game for The Dad, as he had to work a pancake fundraiser breakfast. He had just sat down on the couch with a nice cold glass of beer & some pizza to enjoy the game, when Mom hears "Maizy NO you cannot have any! Maizy GET DOWN! Maizy I said NO!" then there is the sound of a glass falling & The Dad gettin up, and words that well....you get the idea. She hears "GET OUT NOW!" I come flying into the kitchen & shoot downstairs, and when Mom walked into the living room, there is The Dad's beer all over the floor, his pizza half off the plate, and a pretty upset Dad. I wanted that pizza & would not be deterred. So Mom had to clean the floor, the couch, get The Dad dry socks even, and some fresh pizza. It was a mess. I stayed out of the way all night. Mom was in the living room with The Dad later, and she points "look in the corner" I had creeped down the hall, and was peeping at THe Dad from there, but would not come into the living room. Of course by night-night time, I knew I was forgiven, cuz I got some good ear rubs. But I guess I better really start behaving like a lady... ulp


Let them - wait no! not them! let ME eat cake!

Well I am wreaking havoc in my middle years. Mom wrote last week in Felix's diary about our Annual End of Summer Shrimp Boil. Since my human brother was coming, and she misses him so much, Momma decided to make a coconut cake for dessert, cause he likes it. Well, the cake was on the counter, with the plastic snap-on lid not totally snapped on since it said to keep loosely covered. Well, when Momma came in from the screened porch to get dessert, guess who was dreamily licking the frosting off the corner? yeah me - that's right. "arrgh MAIZY!" "huh? what? it was cake!" ok so Momma ate that piece - no harm done. Now the lid is snapped on. During the night, she hears some rattling around. And now who has figured out how to UNSNAP the lid? of course my brilliance knows no bounds, and when I want cake, well I WANT CAKE NOW. ok, "eeek MAIZY!" so she put it in the fridge. Except it doesn't taste as good cold. It got moved & sat on top of the fridge a day or so, then Nana put the last couple o pieces in a glass dish with another snap on lid. ok this should be safe on the counter no? NO! This time, I got busted by gulp...THE DAD. Momma does not know what has gotten into me with this behavior. And I gulp down the stuff like I haven't eaten for weeks either. I was like this when I was a kitten - I had a serious food aggression issue, and I would literally jump on a lap to grab a bite of sandwich & run. But I grew out of it, and was fine until now. If someone gets up from their chair to get a drink or napkin or catsup - you get it, I will be on their seat eating their dinner (if it is what I like) faster than you can say catnip! So Mom has made any sweet stuff on the counter forbidden. sigh NOW what am I gonna do?! And Mom knows it is not good for me (even though it is a bit cute), but still NO NO NO MAIZY NO!) No is NOT part of my vocabulary, as a princess, all must bow before me... & offer their cake.

I am well - I have been playing more than ever lately, and I even go on the screened porch & will stay out there by myself! I jump on the cat tree & will attempt to steal food if anyone walks away from their plate (like I did when I was a kitten) momma cannot leave any bread unattended, or I help myself. I ask you how can she get mad when I am so darn cute? So now, it is not left on the table...The one day, momma had some eggs & toast on her plate & the business phone rang, she forgot to move her plate, so there she was trying to be all professional on the phone with a customer, and watching me eat her eggs while she was waving to get my attention to get down from her chair. Really mom? that is sooo funny... I was sitting on the chair with my paws on either side of the plate, very politely - shhesh! I even raced with Felix this morning. Of course I won, but it was fun. Having a good summer though & not feeling at all like I am 8. *throwing Zeke a kiss*


Happy Daddy's Day

We all love The Dad (except Felix who is still scaredy of him, do not know why) But I am DADDY'S GIRL. I feel really bad, as I jumped on him the other night & scratched him bad with my back claws. I didn't mean to though. Anyways, The Dad let me stay when I was really supposed to go back to the shelter to be adopted after I was fostered here. After much whining & pleading & cajoling from Momma & human sister that they loved me too much to let me go, he said....FINE. See now The Dad would never hurt an animal, but he was not a kitty dude. He always had doggies. I single pawedly turned him into a kitty-dude. He plays with us, he gives us extra treats that Momma does'nt know about ...ahem...whaaat?... and built us a cat tree. He made a big wooden house for the outside kitties to keep warm, and happily carries bags of food or litter & will go to Petco with Momma to stock up our noms. He brushes us all with the Furminator & has his own nicknames for each of us. He keeps a spot on the couch just for Tigger, and lets us sleep all over the bed - even in his spot. Yep, The Dad is a pretty awesome guy. We stand up on our hind legs, and wave a paw in salute to all Daddies out there! Happy Dad's Day to you all, and to The Dad...we love you! purrs, from your Chingie-girl


thanksies & chicken

Thank you so much for the bird-day wishes & gifts. Momma cannot beleive I am 8 already! I surely do not act like it. I bounce around all over the place doling out smackety paws to both the boys & humans alike. Speaking of humans, can you believe that they were not here on MY BIRDDAY! I did get much attention & sweet talks from them, upon their return, but still... However, I did get to enjoy a new taste sensation yesterday that kind of makes up for it. Now I am not a girl that eats much people food, and really I like CAKE and assorted cake items along with an occasional Cheezenip...Anyways, Momma is trying very hard to get in shape for her health, and she prepared a wrap for dinner with tons of veggies & some rotisserie chicken. Well of course when The Dad started munching his, I had to see in case I did or did not want some. He held a bit of chicken for me to sniff, and I snarfed it! There was no skin on it or spices, but man was it good. I ate a couple more bites, and then when Mom was fixing some of the leftover chicken for her lunch today, she asked me & Felix if we would like a bite of chicken, and well of course! Momma says we can only get a bite or two so our tummies don't get upset, but at least if need be, I can eat some plain chicken for a treat. Now....where's that cake?....WHAT? Momma is not eating cake for a while?!? eeeeeeek!


I lost my dining room!

Well, I aolways ALWAYS eat on Momma's dresser. I like it up high so I can glare at the boys while I eat. I could not go in there this afternoon. Momma says Felix needs quiet so he can rest. What? I am quiet..sometimes. I only screech at Smitty & Tig once in a while. I better be able to sleep on the bed, or else!


feelin fine!

I just had a blood test & things look just great! My potassium had been a bit low, the vet said it was from my IBD & the prednisolone. So I have had to take a supplement. Mom says it is an easy one, it gets crushed into my wet food, and has no taste so I eat it up. Too bad all the meds are not like that!
I was even nice & played with Felix a little bit. He likes to play with me because I don't pounce on him like the other two beasts. Although, he did get a smackety paw when I was done. We are all trying to be good for Momma.
and I send special mews & pawtaps to my sweet handsome Zekie. *blush*
