Happy Halloween!

I'd better get some special treats for this or I'll be leaving you a special "treat" on your pillow.

Happy Halloween All! !

Our hearts go out to Ghost and Mia's family during this sad time. She will be missed.


ManCat Monday

Some beans keep asking my mommy and daddy "Have you guys thought about starting a family yet??" I say, they have to get through me first!

Please continue to send good thoughts to our sick friends Miss Peach and Beau.


Cherish MeMe for Miss Peach

Adan at Adan's Everyday started this great MeMe to send lots of love through the air for our dear Miss Peach and her Mommy and Daddy.

Hello my little angel. I'm so very glad you came into our lives. I had no idea how empty our house really was without my woofies before you came into it. You really made me and your daddy feel like a family and not just a "married couple" and our place a "home" and not just a "house." Thank you for that.

Thank you for snuggling with me at night, you know I need it. I promise to never make you feel bad for not snuggling during the day. Thank you for all the purrs you give us all day and all night long. You have such a loud purr motor!

I'm off to play with the "mouse on a shoestring" toy with my little "kitty McPherson
squishyface head Hendrix". He'll let me hug on him when we go to bed, and I'll hug him close as long as he'll let me.

Hey, everyone, this time, I decide to start this cherish meme, here are some ways (depends on which person you write), and bring our love to Miss Peach~! She always makes us know what love is!
1. tell us what is the most sweetest warm thing you will do to your mommy (what is the sweetest thing that your kitty will do to you)
2. And, hug your mommy, tightly... (and, hug your kitty....tightly...)
3. Tag your good friend...
4. Leave your computer, and continuing hug each other...

I will tag all of my friends and their beans cause I don't think there can be enough love to go around.


For Miss Peach

My dear friend Miss Peach is feeling very poorly and her mommy and lap daddy are very sad. Please stop by and offer your support and prayers. She has always been so kind and supportive of everyone.


Tips Tuesday - Math Edition

Simple Cat Math. Lecture 1.


Plus this:

Equals this:

Don't worry, I didn't get in trouble. Niether did Bendrix. Mommy said it was her fault for not closing the window more when the birdies were out there. That bird looked sooooooooooo good.


Mancat Monday - Halloween style

Hi! Here is my first slideshow. I hope future slideshows will be cooler than this, but mommy thought you'd all enjoy seeing me and Bendrix posing in our Halloween costumes. You heard right, Bendrix makes a guest appearance!

Here is our first ever slideshow!!!

(we didn't know how to add music or make this just play on our post...)

Surveying Sunday Late

Yup, we're late, but mommy promised me she'd post and post she did. She had lotsa laundry and cleaning to take care of. She didn't get to vacuuming, and she opened ALL THE WINDOWS, even the ones by my village, so I can forgive her for being late.
Then, stoopid blogger wouldn't let me publish my post!!!

Here I am surveying my outside domain from my Village. Ah, all mine, all mine.

It may be good that I couldn't publish before cause now I can write the good news!
Finally I get to use the most awesome scoreboard Zoolatry made me (see the bottom of my bloggy for the great layout). The Bengals won!!!! If I was a bun, I'd be doing a binkie right now. Please let Marvin the Great fire that Defensive Coordinator so we don't have so many close calls.

Finally the Bengals won!! We won!!

Next week, we're playing our arch-nemises the Pittsburgh Steelers. It'll be a claw biter, but I have faith in my team to come out victorious.


Don't forget us!

Mommy is working 6 days this week cause 2 ladies are out of town. She is even working tomorrow! She has been so busy she hasn't been able to update me. She promises she will on Sunday. Please don't forget us!


Totally Happy Tuesday

I am totally happy that I received 2 awards.
My Sweet Ladycat Brandi and Monty Q gave me the Sweet as a Candied Apple Award.

*blush* I think my Brandi is the sweetest thing ever.
I'd like to pass this award on to:
The Mosaic Cats who are so nice and welcomed (sort of) Annie with open paws.
Captain Jack & Dante Barbossa (long time friends of ours!)
and Timothy Dickens who is so sweet to his Grammie and the other beans where she lives.
Monty Q also gave me the Community Blogger Award for my letter writing campaign against The Office. Keep writing those letters all!

I'd like to pass this award onto the Cat Blogosphere. Many kitties and their beans put a lot of effort in to keeping us informed.
Also to the gang at Cats because they teach us all about our wild friends and how beans need to live in harmony with all creatures.
and to Mom Robyn and the kitties at House of Mostly Black cats for always being willing to donate time, money (their PayPal account)and good thoughts to anyone who needs it.

Honestly, I'd love to give these awards to all the kitty, woofie, bun and birdie bloggers I know. I think we're a good example of what a community can do when it works together for the greater good. So all, consider yourselves awarded!!!


Midnight Monday - Halloween Village

Ah, more minions for me to rule! Yes, daddy and I got 2 more houses for "mommy's" Halloween Village. I love having a bigger kingdom to rule.

Here I am telling mommy where I want the houses to go.

Here I am telling mommy to hurry up!

Here is the new Hotel/Saloon. The doors open and a skeleton cowboy comes out and invites you in for a "shot" and other skeleton cowboys shoot out the windows! Scary.

Here is the jail. Bendrix doesn't like the idea of a jail in our village, but I told him it is for minions who do not worship us as House Panthers such as us deserve. He likes it now.

My awesomely royal friend Yao-lin gave me, Bendrix, an award! Whee!! I loves awards. I try hard to be entertaining.

We'll tag our kitties in a bit. Mommy has to get back to work. Sigh, she isn't working from home until Thursday this week cause 2 people are on vacation. How dare they take my mommy.

My sweet Brandi also gave me a Halloween treat award. We'll post that tomorrow!

I have not forgotten about the desktop meme, mommy has just been lazy and has to figure out how to make it work. She says something about "no brainpower" today. Bendrix sayz, "What, just today?"


Saturday Fun!

First, mommy's birthday was lotsa fun. Daddy and I got her 2 new houses for my, um, I mean, HER, Halloween Village. We got her the Hotel/Saloon and the Jail (look out Bendrix!) She loved them and set them up immediately. She said next year she'll need 2 card tables and probably one tv tray to set it up right.

Here I am showing her all the cool features of the Hotel/Saloon.

What has been fun the last few days is the cooler weather. Monday October 8th was 90 degrees, the rest of the week has been in the 60's. Yippie! That means open windows.
Bendrix loves the cooler weather. How do I know this? There are only 3 places in the house we aren't allowed up on. The kitchen table (the dining room table is OK), the kitchen counters and the top of the player piano....

This is when mommy yelled "NO! Not the hatbox!"

Even Bendrix knows when to get out of Dodge.


Mommy's Birthday

Hi all! Today is my mommy's 32nd birthday. I can't tell her what daddy and I got her cause she might read this and it won't be a surprise.

I love mommy so much that I let her enter me in Karl's noms Halloween costume contest. I had no idea it would involve me looking like this.

Look, I know I've put on a little weight, but why an elephant?

Bendrix says you'd better sleep with one eye open tonight....

I have another outfit mommy wants to get pictures of me in and then she'll decide which photos to send into the contest. sigh. Bendrix won't be happy about this at all....


Lucky Mancat

I have to say, I am one lucky Mancat. I have such a pretty girlfriend cat. Her name is Brandi and she makes me all goofy when I look at her.
Isn't she pretty?? Those silky furs...

She is like a princess sitting on her couch. So regal. Sigh.

If only I could be snuggled next to her. She even makes Bendrix blush! She certainly is my sweet lady cat. She is always so nice to everyone and takes time to visit even tho her computer can be slow. We are almost at our One Year Anniversary! it was at Smeagol, Strider,Mystery & Gizmo's November Birthday/Gotcha Party last year that Brandi agreed to be my ladycat love. It seems like just yesterday...


Contact Info for NBC and The Office

First, I want to say thank you to everyone who is supporting us in the campaign to get NBC and The Office to apologize for this awful story line where Dwight kills Angela's cat.

Mommy has been uber busy getting ready for a trade show and a big sale at her jobbie (she does the Marketing) but we have NOT dropped the ball on our quest to get contact info. We too sent an email and got a generic response from NBC. We are following up with a slew of letters to NBC, the Office writers and the 2 characters involved. Letters (or phone calls) are usually read more than emails according to research by the Humane Society of the United States.

Although most of you do not watch the show regularly, we suggest that you watch this episode online at NBC.com so you can reference some of the more awful lines (and some like where Dwight says to Angela after admiting he killed her cat Sprinkles "I know a great taxidermist. I'll pay to have her stuffed. Well he's not great, but he's pretty good." are worse than others.)

The contact information is (and we will be putting on the front of the envelope "Animal Cruelty Storyline Complaint" to catch their eye):

"The Office"
13927 Saticoy Street
Van Nuys, CA 91402

"The Office"
NBC Universal Television Studio
100 Universal City Plaza
Bungalow 5180/5170
Universal City, CA 91608

Rainn Wilson (character "Dwight")
3 Arts Entertainment
9460 Wilshire Blvd.
7th Floor
Beverly Hills, CA 90212

Angela Kinsey (character "Angela" who actually has been interviewed saying she owns cats and supports animal rescue!)
c/o Forster - Delaney Management
12533 Woodgreen Street
Los Angeles, CA 90066
her my space page address has not been updated since June 2007, but it can't hurt to send her a message there too.

B.J. Novak (a writer and creator of the show)
William Morris Agency
One William Morris Place
Beverly Hills, CA 90212

On a side note, mommy will be looking up the CBS contact info ASAP on the episode of "Back to You" where the fish was killed. She did not DVR that episode so she can't list the advertisers, but she did (fastforwarding thru the episode itself) get the list of advertisers for The Office.

We have turned my blog pink to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We want to thank Gretchen for taking the lead in starting this. We have all been affected by this disease (my mommy's grandma and 2 aunts). We hope the cure comes soon.


Ticked off Tuesday

Mommy finally sat down and watched the premire of the Office on NBC. We've loved that show for years and own the first 2 seasons on DVD and wanted the 3rd for mommy's birthday next week. BUT she watched the premire episode and we are angry.

How dare the writers of the Office make a joke out of Dwight killing Angela's cat! For those of you who don't watch the show (and you can see clips from it on NBC.com), Angela asked Dwight, her boyfriend, to go to her house at lunch and give her sick cat Sprinkles her medicine because she couldn't.

Dwight took it upon himself to poison the cat with antihistimines until he thought Sprinkles was dead. Then he put Sprinkles in the freezer. We find out later that Sprinkles was NOT dead when Dwight put her in the freezer. She woke up inthe freezer, Angela said in a later scene she found her frozen foods shredded,and of course, died in the freezer.

Dwight said it is because he is "a farmer" and he wanted to put the sick cat out of its misery. Angela is of course mortified but everyone else acts as though it is "just a cat" and no big deal.

I also saw an episode of "Back to You" last Wednesday where Kelsey Grammer recieved a fish that, of course, was killed by (sarcasm) ha ha, him not knowing how to take care of it.

What is wrong with these writers? AND after the Michael Vick nightmare and the food poisonings this summer, and just plain human compassion, why aren't more people standing up and saying this behavior is NOT funny, it is cruel?

My mommy is going to write letters not only to the writers of the Office, but to NBC AND the advertisers on this and subsequent episodes (this story line will continue) asking why they are supporting animal cruelty as a joke.

It is time people stand up and say, animal death is not a joke.

Go to NBC.com and select the Office. We will follow up with more contact info for advertisers and phone numbers and addresses for NBC as we get them.

I hope you will all support a letter writing campaign and will boycott the Office as well as its advertisers until we viewers receive an appropriate apology.
