Treats on Tuesday

Hi all! I hope you had a great Thanksgiving and enjoyed some extra treats. I did get some nommy turkey and hammmmmmmmmmmmm. What is crazy is my beans get TWO Thanksgiving dinners and the turkeys that were served weighed more than the stinky boy!

But this weekend I even got something more special.

Thanks to my good friend, and nose twin William....I got Cheez-Its!!!!

I am soooooooooooo thankful all year round for my friends...and bags of Cheez-Its. Maybe next time I'll get to eat the entire bag.
snort, nom nom nom


Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

We have lots to be thankful for this year and so much of that has to do with our loving family and friends, including all of you! In these difficult economic times, we are greatful for the roof over our heads, the clothes in our closet and the food in our bellehs.

I am especially thankful to get a share of my bean's foods today. They have TWO Thanksgiving dinners at my two grandbeans houses. They will have TWO turkeys and a ham. Each turkey weighs more than the stinky boy. Wow. Can you imagine?

The weather is cold and rainy up here so I'm again thankful to have a warm, loving forever home. I'll be by myself most of the day so anyone who wants to come over and hang out is welcome. My beans put up the Christmas trees (with lights but no ornaments yet) to get the grabby one (aka Baby Joel) used to them. We can climb climb climb!

Today, remember the good things you have to be thankful for and put any worries aside for one day.

PS Don't worry friends, I have not forgotten to thank Bast for the glorious gift of catnip.


What Now? Wednesday

Crap, now what? Fight or flight? Fight or flight?


Tired on Tuesday

Between your back shots and your sinus infection, I'm tired of all these nursing duties. I am wasting away burning all this energy purring and sleeping.

Get up off your butt and feed me!

That's better. Now lets nap.


Veteran's Day - Thank You to All Who Served and are Serving

Thank You to All Who Served and are Serving. You are braver than brave. You are the reason we are free.

It does not matter what day or time it is or place she is, when mommy hears this song on the radio. She stops, listens, and cries.

Brothers In Arms
Dire Straits

These mist covered mountains
Are a home now for me
But my home is the lowlands
And always will be
Some day you'll return to
Your valleys and your farms
And you'll no longer burn
To be brothers in arm

Through these fields of destruction
Baptism of fire
I've watched all your suffering
As the battles raged higher
And though they did hurt me so bad
In the fear and alarm
You did not desert me
My brothers in arms

There's so many different worlds
So many different suns
And we have just one world
But we live in different ones

Now the sun's gone to hell
And the moon's riding high
Let me bid you farewell
Every man has to die
But it's written in the starlight
And every line on your palm
We're fools to make war
On our brothers in arms


What Do You Think? Wednesday

Mommy put my new collar on me Monday! I really like it. I think it is very appropriate that it is in a very cool pattern.

Can you tell? Mommy bought this back in August when my old collar had to go and after it was put on, we realized the very appropriate timing.

I am so glad my daddy is home. We're hoping he won't have to go back next week. sigh. But, with the nicer weather, my tummy feeling better and daddy being home, I've been playing like crazy. With my mommy getting her head out of her...um, hat, I've actually got action shots to share!

(um, yes, I may have put on some winter weight...but I still look buff!)

We hope you will visit tomorrow to see a special post we have planned to honor Veteran's Day.


Finally on Friday...Daddy is home!

We'll post pictures of the reunion soon. Sure, he greeted the stinky boy first and gave him toys, but then he gave me my noms and some pets.

I do have to wonder where he'll sleep since mommy and I have had a good thing going for 2 weeks now...


My 8th birthday and 6th Gotcha Day!!

Holy Bast it is my birthday! Oh my gosh! How did I lose track of time? Must be old age setting in. ha ha ha I am 8 years today AND it is my 6th gotcha day.

Well, my birth date is kind of a guess. You can read my Gotcha Day/Birthday story in my sidebar. It is hard to believe it has been 6 years since I was a skinny, scrawny feral kitty.

Here is a picture from that first night (see how I had mommy cornered so I was between her and the door so I could run?)

In the meantime, I found some stuff in the fridge, freezer and closet so....Let's party!

blue toona gizzys for those who are old enough

milk and toona snacks for those under one year old (lets not get the fuzz called on us!)

toona party platter for nomming

haaaaaammmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm for more nomming

bones for my woofie friends

AND I pulled out all my catnip bags and soft bitey mice for sharing!

Mommy feels terrible she forgot and now she is at work and can't even love on me in person! She called me and told me where some extra party stuff is so I can have one. She promises me a new toy this weekend for a present and lotsa extra stinky goodness and pets tonight after the stinky boy goes to bed.

She says there is no excuse for forgetting my big day because I am the first "furry" baby and I am what made her and daddy a family when they were first married.

Thank you to all my friends for remembering and for caring about us while we get thru this bizzarly weird time (see post below too!). Thank you for remembering so my mommy would remember! I am lucky to have such a great community of friends, that is a perfect present.

Well, that and some nip. And a day away from the stinky boy. And some nip. And ham.
And a nip toy. And a new soft bitey mouse. And nip.

PS mommy posted this at her temp job so there are actual pictures (see post below). she is on her own today so maybe we'll be able to visit. they block lotsa stuff here tho and she doesn't want to get in trouble...


Wordy Wednesday and Stoopid Internet

Hi all! I am soooooooooo lucky to have such great friends. Thanks for all your nice thoughts thru our stinky times right now. They really mean a lot.

I am featuring one of two care packages I got from my friends. I'll do the other one this week when the stinky hairless monkey stops dripping and can get a good picture.

My nose twin William and his mommy and furry sibs sent me a nice pick me up package. I got CheezIts!!! Oh my gosh Oh my gosh! I looooooooove CheezIts.

OK, here is the deal, I'm going to finish this post when we can do it justice. Our internet has been wonky for months now and everytime I try to upload a photo I knocks me off. Mommy only got one uploaded onto Facebook. I want to show you all the neat stuff my friend sent me.

I hope that some of my daddy's overtime pay (he worked 86 hours last week in Calif and he isn't done yet!) can get us a new router and new wireless box so our computer will work. That is what the techy guys said and they've done all kindsa stuff up there.

Cross paws we get things fixed soon! It is so frustrating to barely be able to post and visit.
