Hello everycat! It's time to make a new thread. The other is pretty full! Here is the link to the previous thread. http://www.care2.com/c2c/groups/disc.html?gpp=47&pst=1693974 Take care all you wonderful furkids. Talk to you tomorrow. Mouse
I just had a big old hairball it was really gross It seemed huge to me and it was all tarring looking, Mom laid down with me and I'm feeling better now. My mom voted already on something called absentee ballot she said because Of Arthur somebody she can't stand in long lines. I've never met him and don't know what he has to do with her knees but sometimes she walk funny and real slow so I walk ahead of her. Hello to Hieronymous Bob and Bronuynn boy thats sure a mouth full do you have nicknames? Thank you my sweet Mouse for worrying about me. I'm gonna eat sometime now as I feel all better. Goodnite to all the kitties and most of all my Mouse. Stripes.
Stripes~ So glad to hear that your feeling all better now. Whew! That must've been quite a worry for your mommy there. Hope you don't get anymore hairballs to cough up any time soon. Hello to Hieronymous Bob and Bronuynn boy! That is a long name there. How did your mom come up with that? Well, glad to see Stripes, Mouse and the two new kitties here. Hope the others will still stop by or more new ones. Mom says she is running low on my dry food. Hoping she doesn't run out till she can get a chance to go shopping. I'm very picky about what cat food I eat and it can't just be any cat food you know. Good night to all the kitties here. Noss
so how is everyone doing ? we are watching 2012 tonight, it is a little scary, but i like scary films, not bloody ones. had a little trouble with grandma's dogs tonight, they dared to try to get into our side of the house! well i would like to see them try to get to me, actually they are really friendly, and just want to play, but you know we kitties only want to play when we want to play!but anyway mamma closed the connecting door, and all is well with our perfect world again! you guys all have a wonderful evening, especially stripes,noss, and of course our own dear mouse! love and purrs. babette
Hi Noss, Babette and of course my sweetie, Stripes. Mouse here. I'm glad you are feeling all better Stripes and got rid of that hairball. I don't remember having a hairball yet. Mom brushes me and she told me I lose less hair than anyone else. My hair is kind of silky she says. Kenny always has a lot of hair that comes out. He also has a few small hairballs now and then. That's how I know what a hairball is. Rosie's hair is a little like mine. Tom's is a horrible mess but mom said don't say anything to him about it cause he is so old. So I just tell him he's looking good when I see him in the mornings first thing.
Wow, the ground was white this morning. It was frosty and felt cold. I have been in taking a nap in mom's bed after she made straightened it up. It always feels so fluffy when she fluffs it up. There is no sunshine today. I miss it.
You should have seen Chewy trying to use the computer a few minutes ago. He weighs 45 pounds and was sitting on mom's lap looking at the screen. He lifted his right foot up and started to type! Mom stopped him, she was afraid of what he might say, I mean after all even though he is a good dog, he might say something not right for us cats. Like a dirty cat joke.
Mom wants the computer, so good by sweet Stripes and everycat here.
Hello kit kats.
Babette I know what you mean about wanting to play with the dogs only when you want to play. Sometimes I have to teach the dog here when I am in the mood to play and when I want to be left alone. She may be bigger than me but still will chase her.
Stripes~ did you get to go outdoors and play? Have you ever played in the white stuf I think you mentioned or Mouse has mentioned? Wondering what it is like.
Mouse~ I have never had a hairball in quite awhile now. Mom brushes me from time to time, I do lose a lot of fur and I love to be brushed. It would be interesting to see Chewy on here trying to add in his input. Has little Joe caused you any trouble lately?
Trying to keep cool here, going from mommy's room to grandma's to see what room is cooler to sleep in. It has been a very hot day and with all this fur on I need to be by a window with the breeze blowing on me. Maybe I'll join Babette by her window, eh.
Hope you are all having a good day Mouse, Stripes, Babette and Chewy who tried to jump in. Aloha, Noss
Noss its called snow. Sometimes its fun to play in as long as its not too deep, it can get higher than me. Mom doesn't care to shovel it or drive in it if its icy. Your lucky as we can't open our windows until spring. Mom lets me sleep under the covers if it gets too cold out, I won't let her put any sweathers or things like that on me. She brought home some chicken from her Dad's and I'm gonna demand some. Goodnight Mouse(my sweetie) Babette, Noss Chewy and everyone.
Mouse here, Hi my Stripes and Noss and Babette and all cats. We did have snow that one day, but it quickly changed to slush, a horrible, cold, sloppy, wet mess. I was so glad when it ran off the deck so I could go out there again and watch the birds and squirrels. It has been cold at night with a frosting of ice by morning. I am staying in bed longer. That reminds me, did everyone here reset their clocks. Mom swore she changed the time in the bedroom clock, but this morning it was the old time. I guess our resident ghost changed it back. Does anyone else have a resident ghost? Mom swears we do. She has told me some scary things. And then there is Girl Dog who watches for things in the corners and there is nothing there. She's a strange, old dog.
Us cats need to pray to our God to help those in the Northeast. Think of all the poor little ones like us that have been killed or lost their home in this terrible storm. I wake up thinking of them and wish I could do something for them. Like give them a warm bowl of food and a bed with a roof over their heads with assurances there would be more of the same every day. They have another storm coming.
Stripes I have missed you. Mom put the computer away in it's case yesterday and then she was gone off and on all day. She has to leave again today. For someone who says she doesn't like going places, she has to go a lot! She puts it away in a case to protect it. We don't have a computer desk anymore to keep it out and available.
Love you Strips,
Hi everyohne. I am Roy. I slept all day yesterday on the pillow because Mommy wouldn't sit down long enough for me to sit on her lap. Bad Mommy. And today she went to work. I don't get enough time on Mommy's lap.
It is sunny and I am staying in all the sunny spots. I like sunny spots.
Roy you need to work on the staring so Mom feels guilty for not holding you, It works on my Mom. Mouse now I know why I don't hear from you very much. I love you Mouse! Stripes.

Hello to Stripes, Mouse & Chewy, Babette and Roy.
It rained today and got a bit chilly. But I don't mind as I keep warm with my mommy on the bed. Mom heard someone on the radio say it was 48 degrees up at Volcanoes National Park in the morning. That is above us, further up the mountain. So it is getting chilly at nights and early mornings, brrrr...
Mouse~ We don't have to change our clocks back an hour. For us here in Hawaii we stay the same. You got a ghost living there with you? Hope it doesn't make trouble to you.
I agree with you on the poor animals that went through the storm out there. Hope the rescuers find them and help them.
Stripes~ That snow sounds pretty cold over there. I bet you stay nice and warm tho'. I don't think I would like any sweaters on me as well. I do love clean blankets or towels to sleep on. So how do you get your mommy to give you some of that chicken? Give her the look or the please give me 'meow'?
Hello Roy~ I like sunny spots too. I try to find them when the sun shines through the windows. I have a pillow to sleep on as well but the dog likes to take it. Glad to see you here.
Getting chilly already tonight. Time to cozy up to a mommy. G'nite, Noss
Hi everyone. Roy here again.
I tried to stare at Mommy last night. It didn't work. I am too much of a "love bug". That's what she calls me. She tries to keep me off her lap when she is doing something but I sneak on anyway. She doesn't even realize it. Tee Hee.
Still sunny today but I think we will get rain tomorrow. I stay in all the time anyway- now that I found my home I don't want to loose it.
Noss I just stare at her until she gives in, walking in front of the screen when she's on the comuter works too. Its raining here today. Guess I'll take a nap! Miss you Mouse.
Hey- when they get on the computer- all you have to do is sit on the keyboard. Tee Hee
Hey does the stare go like this? You know sad kitten eyes to get your way. Yeah, I think sitting on the key board would get their attention too. I was sitting on the bed with mommy last night and she had a fuzzy ball of string she was using. I pounced on that fuzzy ball when ever it moved. Grabbed it with my two front paws and tried to get the string in my mouth. Mom started to say stop that to me. Hey, this was something new to me and liked attacking it. What do you like playing with kitties? Noss
Hi Roy, Noss and my special beautiful lady Stripes. This is Mouse and I am typing very badly this morning. I keep having to back up and correct. Noss I love to play with that circle thing with a ball inside. There is paper in the center where mom puts catnip and I scratch and scratch it. I love to hear the ball go around and around too. I bat it and keep hoping it will jump out and I can chase it. Keep trying that stare Roy. It will eventually work and then again the pacing in front of the computer works to get a hug and any thing you want. Mom gave away the desk with the slide thing, now she puts the computer in a case and puts it out of sight. I don't like that. It was much better when I had easy access. Tom goes to extreme to get something, he catches mom sitting or even standing and comes up to her very quietly and stands up on his hind feet and falls forward with all claws extended onto mom's leg. She usually screams and unconnects Tom and asks what you want Tom? I don't want to try that, Tom is old and I think she will let him get away with a little more.
Okay Stripes, what have you been doing with yourself? I have been playing outside a lot in the afternoon sunshine otherwise sleeping a lot. Mom has been gone a lot lately so what better thing to do than sleep. Of course it would be nice if she left the computer out but she worries Chewy might try to get on again and without supervision, wreck the whole thing. I miss you when I can't get on. I asked mom to send a message through your mom to tell you I missed you.
Back at you later guys, take care of yourself everycat and love to Stripes,
I have green mousy. He's mine. I also have tan mousy but sometimes Scout gets him. We also have dark blue and light blue mousy. We both play with those. Scout also likes the milk carton rings.
ANd we both like to scrtach our cardboard scratchy. Sepcially when Mommy puts catnip on it. We LOVE catnip.
Is this what you mean Mouse. I posted you passed out in it! I love you Mouse and miss you when your not on. I've been stuck in the house the last few days. I've been playing in boxes, sacks and tearing up the rug in the bathroom I like to roll in it. I've been napping alot also. I'm gonna have some chicken later as soon as its done, smells pretty good in the kitchen so I'm gonna lay in front of the oven so she doesn't forget me! Hello to all the kitties. Love and wet kitty kisses to Mouse!
Wow, what fun toys every one has to play with. Mouse, your toy does look fun, a scratching spot in the center and a ball that goes around to get. Roy, I have a pink mousy hanging by my food area. I love my scratch box as well when there is cat nip on it. Don't even get me started on boxes and paper bags. If mom has them out and it is empty, I play in it and claim it as mine.
Stripes I have never seen mommy use anything but one shiny looking stick to use with that fuzzy string. She is trying to make something long and skinny to go around the neck. She tried to put it on me but really she says it is for her. Hope I can get to play with the fuzzy ball again.
Mom went shopping today and brought back a new bag of my food. If she does not give me some soon I will be making a hole at the bottom, he, he. She says not yet as I have to finish off what I got left but I am not going to wait. Let's see where did she put it, going to go see. Have a good nite kitties. Noss
Mouse here, You got the right one Stripes! That is my favorite. Thanks so much for posting it. There are a few other things too. I haven't had a bag yet. I think it is time mom introduced me to one. So far she only has plastic bags. Roy, Punkin's favorite is a grey mouse and she is very possesive of it. It looks like a miniature me. Thank goodness I am so big that she won't mistake me for her grey mouse.
How about day time nap places? I have found another. After years of having cats that didn't scratch furniture, she finally got one, no, not me, but Punkin! So mom puts a sheet all folded up hanging over the sofa end and under that it is a wonderful, dark hidey hole. I just came out to say hello to everycat and wish my Stripes a good day. When I am in this hidey hole Punkin always tries to reach under to get me. We have a good time. I am always looking for great places to nap.
Stripes, enjoy that chicken and think of me as you enjoy a good dinner of chicken! Mom just cooked green beans for that dog, Chewy. She forgot she was supposed to fix him green beans to help him on his diet. The diet isn't working. He looks even fatter.
Noss, did you find the new food? Mom says tomorrow she has to go buy us some more. The cabinet is a little empty. She buys ground turkey when it is on sale and cooks it for us. I had some of that for breakfast along with my Fancy Feast Dry.
Mom says I am getting bigger and bigger. She picks me up and says wow, just how much do you weight big boy? I just ask her 'how much do you weigh?" and I don't hear anything more.
Stripes, I think Girl Dog is getting senile, whatever that means. Evidently it means watching her like a hawk. Mom said Girl Dog has peed in the house 10 times this year but thankfully she put rugs down with plastic underneath to catch it after the first couple. She also just stares into corners which is scary. There doesn't seem to be anything there. Then she paces with her tail tucked between her legs. Does any one else have a very old dog, she is 17 1/2. How do they act? She has lost her manners outside also. She used to always go to the woods and take a poo. Now she does it right in front of the steps. Mom keeps her cool and doesn't yell at her. I am a perfect cat. I learned to use litter boxes after a few weeks. Mom was so proud of me the first time she seen me in the box.
I am going for a nap. I will talk to you later and Stripes you are precious! Take care,
I don't know how much you weigh Mouse but I can tell by your picture that you are a nice slim boy, I just love your picture you look like you are having a lot of fun.One of my kitties Allan weighs 23 pounds he is on a diet and he doesn't lose weight either he must be just like Chewy.
Mouse this is my favorite one. Mom made me a copy on her printer so I can look at when ever I want. I like to nap behind the curtains in the dining room, then also on top of the bird cage Sam the bird sure doesn't like it thats why I do it cause Mom tells him to shut up! Noss did you open the bag! Mom keeps mine in a plastic thing> I'm going outside today as its nice out so later. Love to Mouse! Stripes
Love back at you Mouse! I hope you enjoyed your day. I sure did. I played while mom worked! It was so nice outside. Tomorrow she wants to do housework! I am going to find one of my hidy holes and sleep. I don't want to be around that loud thing she pushes everywhere.
Hey that's a handsome dude! Hey it's me! That is when I was pretty new here. I haven't slept up there for a long time. Mom brought the flower arrangement back. I tore it up pretty good but she didn't get really mad at me. Tell Allen Kenny weighed 23 pounds too. Now he weighs around 16 pounds. It took him a year and a half. Chewy will never lose weight. He's a food hound.
I'm tired after so much hunting and playing. I think I will curl up and go to bed.
Love you Stripes,
I just came in sure was nice outside. I'm going to nap also as I'm tired. Love to Mouse. Stripes.
Hi Sweetheart Stripes! I hope you had a great nap. I had a short one but spent most of the day hunting and playing. It was so nice outside and mom keeps food and fresh water on the deck for a quick snack. Some times I follow Chewy and we hunt together. None of the other cats are interested. They have their own thing. Mom was working outside again. I wish she would stop and play with us. I bet she wishes we would help her work!
Talk to you tomorrow, don't let those cute bugs bite. love you
I came in from outside than took a nap. Now I'm going to eat something then I might take another nap. Its hard being a cat sometimes just so many hours in the day to take naps, eat & play.& nap, then eat again. Hello to all the kitties where ever you are. Love to My Mouse! Stripes (big yawn)
Hello kitties. I would have to say that my favorite napping place is on grandma's bed. But lately it is in my box, just love boxes. I like hiding under the towels or clothes that is draped on the railing in here when mom has to bring them in from the rain. If any one passes by I like to try and paw them. No, I did not get into my new bag of food yet. Mom says I need to finish up the last bit I have in my food bin. Besides the bag of the cat food is plastic. I can't tear through it. I weigh about 13 pounds altho' mom says I feel heavier than that. But she loves me all the same. My dad has an unusual smell on his pants lately, can't help but smell it up when he is wearing it. LOL. Love to all the kitties here. Noss
Good evening Mouse, Stripes, Noss, Babette, and Roy! Whiskers here Noss, I heart boxes too. My sister Gingersnap tears them apart, but I like to hide in them, especially ones that are much smaller than I am Stripes, my dad just woke me up from my nap and combed through my fur with some sort of comb...I think he likes me, but he scares me sometimes when he puts me in a tan colored container and puts water on me and then makes me smell good afterwards. He also uses a loud machine that blows hot air on my fur afterwards He doesn't pay attention when I meow so loudly that Mommy hears and comes in to say nice things to me. Thankfully he doesn't put me in that tan container too often.
Mouse here. Hello everycat! Especially Stripes, my beloved! How does that sound Stripes? The pics are so cute. The kitties and Stripes look alike.
Whiskers I don't know about your Dad. I think I am happy with only a mom. She has put me in a box before and then one of those large four wheeled things and took me to the vet, but wetting down blowing hot air on me, I don't know. I hope mom doesn't think of anything like that. I will make sure I keep clean and well groomed and maybe she won't!
Noss, I have not had a box yet or even a bag. I do have a really neat spot between the sofa and the folded over sheet mom puts on the arm to keep Punkin from scratching it. It is so comfortable there except when Punkin realizes I am there. She then scratches under the sheet to get at me. Most of the time she doesn't even know I am there. I am going to ask mom for one of those bags. They sound like fun.
Well Stripes I think I will take my nap and dream a little dream of you until it gets warmer outside. Love you,
Whiskers I only have a Mom Like Mouse. The only time I got wet was when I fell into the bathtub when mom was taking a bath, I didn't like it at all. Hope Mom doesn't read this it might give her ideas. I keep myself clean as I'm always washing myself. Has Gingersnap been in that tub? Mouse, boxes and bags are so much fun to play & sleep in. The sheet things sounds pretty cool. I can't go out as its raining. I'm gonna try to get on top of some boxes she keeps fabric in and take a nap, it's a cool place its its pretty high up. I'll dream of you also Mouse. xxoo Stripes.
sorry i have not been posting lately, but mamma's computer has been acting really funny the past week, this new os, is kind of weird, and mamma said she is going to put on windows 7. so how have you guys been? hi to my dearest stripe. and mouse, and noss, and all the rest of you guys. boy are weather has been really getting cold. and bless all those people on the east coast who have had to endure all that terrible weather, i am looking forward to THANKSGIVING, mamma got a BUTTERBALL TURKEY, 24 pounds worth! i really like the white meat, and i even like the potatoes as long as there is gravy on it. we always have THANKSGIVING, here at mamma and grandma's house, so the whole family is coming over all 14! so what are you guys doing for THANKSGIVING? got to go get my evening snack, will post tomorrow. love and purrs to all. babette
Mouse here. Stripes mom got me a paper bag and guess what? kenny took it over! He is sleeping on it right now. Oh well, maybe she can find me another later today. I am going to take a nap as usual and let breakfast kind of settle and by then it should be nice and sunny outside. It will be around 70 degrees today, a perfect temp.
Hi Babette, you and your mom are going to be busy fixing turkey and then, oh my, pleasure, eating turkey! Mom says we can't afford one this year and will have to be satisfied with chicken, which I like. She told me the turkeys she used to buy for $6 to $10 dollars are now around $30 and that will buy a lot of cat food! She will fix all the trimmings though. There will be only mom and us furkids so a chicken should be just right. I just thought of something, I've never had turkey! But it sounds so good. She did tell me if she should get a grocery store gift card she would buy one.
My sweet Stripes I am ready for my nap. You take one too and together we might get together in our dreams! Love,
Stripes here, so Mouse you got a paper bag and Kenny took it over. The trick is to sleep inside it. Sometimes when I'm in it Mom picks it up and carries me to another room. She needs to grow up. Babette, sounds like your all set for Thanksgiving. Mom fixed a Turkey once that she got free from the firechief. He always bought everyone where she worked Turkeys for Christmas, we don't get them since she retired. Mouse, I'm glad you furkids are there for your Mom so she's not alone, Chicken tastes just as good as Turkey. I have that picture of you Mom printed out I look at it everynight before bed. Sweet Dreams Mouse. Your Stripes.
Hello kitties. Wow, nice to hear Babette on and Whiskers.
Whiskers~ my mom gives me a bath. Have been since I was little so I am use to it. Don't like it but endure it. It is only after the bath I don't like being wet and miserable looking. I won't let mom blow dry me with that thing. So she just towel dries me off pretty good and then I find a sun spot to sit in. Yesterday I thought I was going to get a bath as I heard mom get something under the cabinet where my shampoo usually is. I looked at her about ready to go hide and then she says it wasn't me getting a bath it was the dog. I was happy after that and felt better.
Mouse~ you need to try out that paper bag or at least have one of your own so Kenny won't get it. I like sleeping on top of it and inside. I like the sound it makes when playing with it.
Stripes~ So you have fun playing in boxes, bags and what ever else you can get into I bet. Yep, chicken does sound good as well. Really good right now. Yum.
Babette~ Wowee Maui, you sure have a big family getting together for thanksgiving. Are you going to stay around to get some tid bits or do you go hiding because there is so much people around?
Mom went to the farmer's market today and bought a couple of plants. She left them on the table until she could take them outside since she just got home. It was a lavender and licorice mint plant. I jumped up on the chair on started smelling them right away but before I could get a nibble, mom rushed over and took them away and put them outside. She said it was not for me to have. Sigh, oh well. I thought it was cat nip. Aloha and a good night kitties. Noss
Mouse here! Noss, where's the litter box? Boy that nosiy box really looks like fun! Some one gave mom two new plants. A Ficus (sp?) tree about 4 ft. tall and a topiary plant. A few leaves are falling off, but she was told not to worry. They will come back. Here it is coming winter and your mom is buying and setting plants outside. They wouldn't survive the night here. You are lucky or so mom says. I don't really know about winter yet. This is my first one. I hope today isn't an example!
Hey did I tell you about the two bucks in the back yard kind of trying each other out? The buck with the disgraceful looking rack and a buck with a beautiful rack were kind of testing each other by gentle head butts. They didn't seem serious yet, but soon the rutting season (as mom calls it) is heating up. The buck with the small rack after 3 or 4 head butts just turned and slowly walked a few feet and dropped his head and started eating. Wow, how exciting seeing nature like that. I was hiding under the fallen tree watching the whole thing. Chewy told me he was threatened by one of them the previous day and he came running toward the house. He gets along with the does and usually the bucks, but now is a dangerous time. Mom won't go outside if one is in the yard. Their hooves are very sharp and dangerous.
Stripes, It is raining here and getting cooler. It will be freezing cold tomorrow night. In the 20s, wow, 20 some degrees different from last night. I just had breakfast, mom didn't even try to spoil me this morning. She put food out in front of me and let me decide whether to eat it or not. I ate it. She says part of my charm is that I have not been spoiled rotten and she is not going to spoil a good thing even though she is spoiling me! Last night I slept on her and Chewy while they were watching TV. I was very warm there! I did my purring for mom. Soon we were all napping instead of watching TV. Stay in if it is raining Stripes. I don't want you to get cold and wet. Ask mom to sit and hold you all afternoon. I'm going to ask mom to hold me today. She told me she didn't have errands to run so what better thing than to get a book and sit in the recliner with a throw and nap. I'll be thinking of you, love you
Noss, Loved your box guide, I'm with Mouse where's the litter box? Mom planted that Lavender plant this Spring. Whats Licorice mint , bet it smelled wonderful. Glad it was the dog who got the bath and not you. Was good to hear from Babette & Whiskers. I wish Drake who check in and tell us how he made out with the scary pumpkin. Mouse, I tried to go out but its too cold all the outdoor cat's water was frze Mom gave them new I ran around the yard then wanted in. If I ca get her to read later I'll be on her. I'm going to lay in front of the screen while she's on the computer that always works. Love you back. Stripes.
Roy here. My mom said she used to give Darkstar and Magnolia baths because Daddy is allergic. They got lazy and they don't anymore. I think I would freak out. I get weird sometime about things like that.
Hey Stripes- Maggie used to sleep in the bags. She would hide and play the "where's Maggie" game with Mommy. It was funny. Sometimes Darkstar would tell on her.
I like to hide under things too. I hide under the guest bed near the top of the stairs. Then I can keep an eye on things. Nobody knows I am there.
Love to all kitties,
Hello all of you cats! My name is Bandit and I've been reading your words for a long time but I never tried to write before. I am locked in my mom's room today because there is a little girl running around and I am tired from trying to keep out of her way. She doesn't hurt me but I only like my mom to hold me. She is the one that saved me and she knows what makes me feel good. Anyway, I am almost 1 year old now and mom says I am starting to get bigger. I know I have a special spot under the stairs where I hide from Savanna and the last few times it seems like I really have to push my way in. I like to sleep under my mom's pillow on her bed. It is quiet and dark and comfortable and best of all, Savanna can't see me when she's patrolling the house. She's too fat and lazy to actually check under things. Thank goodness. Roxy knows where I sleep 'cuz she comes and lays with me sometimes, licking my fur and making me feel all warm and loved. She is like my cat mom. I don't know where my real mom is...I don't remember much before my mom saved me except that it was so cold and I was so scared and hungry. I was lost in the woods and I didn't think I'd ever find a place to stay. My mom found me and she takes special care of me every day. I'm her favourite....I know because she says it to me all the time but she says don't tell the other kitties or they will get jealous. I like boxes to play in but whenever someone brings a box home, Roxy usually jumps in it to sleep. That's ok...I like it when Roxy is happy. We have a box here in mom's room that has a blanket in it for Roxy. When I run around crazy before breakfast it makes a great jumping off place. Savanna likes bags and she always climbs in them to sleep when the groceries are being put away.
Anyway, I hope to get to know all of you cats...you sound like you have alot of fun at your houses. Mouse, you look a lot like I do and Roxy and Savanna. I wish we were allowed to play outside sometimes but I can smell the cold air through the window and I'm glad we have a warm place to sleep. We spend alot of time cleaning our fur so we look our best without baths. I think I need to cuddle on the bed and have a nap. You're right Stripes.....there just doesn't seem to be enough hours in a day for all the naps we need.
Ciao for now everyone!! Be back soon.
hi every one, and a big hi and purrs to the new kitty on the block BANDIT, i am 3/4 ragdoll, and mom just found out i have a 1/8 munchkin kitty in me! that accounts for my short little legs. mouse i love stuffed chicken! mamma had to pay 40 dollars for the turkey for our big family, all 14 are going to show up, she saved the money up over 7 mos, to get all the goodies for our families THANKSGIVING. i mean mamma says even cranberry sauce is about 2 bucks a can. i would rather have a can of fancy feast myself, but am looking forward to some turkey breast and mashed potaotes with gravy!well i am going to go take a nap now, love to stripes and noss too! purrs. babette
Hey Bandit, My mom had a Bandit & Smokey before me Bandit was 16 and Smokey 14 years old, they died in 1995. Then she said she had Miss Missie Mo She was 16 and died in 2006. Momm told me she was so upset when she lost them that she didn't know about getting another cat. Well one night in Nov. 2008 she hear me crying in the rain and I've with her ever since.I know she loved Bandit the most because he was only 3 weeks old when she got him, I think they were close. She loves me too but in a differant way. She said there was room in her heart for me. I know I love her alot. Was glad to hear from Roy, Bandit, Noss Babette and of course my Mouse! Babette did your Mom find out how to put pictures up yet? Love to Mouse. Stripes.
Hello kitties, Nossy girl here. Well, hello to Bandit, nice to see you here. Glad you got rescued and have a loving home to be in now. It must've been scary for you. sounds like you got Roxy and Savanna to keep you company there as well. Nice of you to join here.
Mouse~ Ah, well, I guess the litter box isn't on the guide there as we don't play in it really, more for our potty business. LOL. Don't want to show that. Wow, you got to go play outside with the bucks and Chewy too. Yes, I understand that when they go into their rutting season as you say, it would be wise not to be around them afterwards. I get to watch those only on tv, but you get to watch them right in your back yard. That is so neat!
Stripes~ Mom likes the smell of lavender and she had one growing but dad decided to weed whack one day and it was gone. Mommy wasn't too happy about that. Dad just thought it was a weed as well. So she is planning on getting more. The licorice mint smelled good to me but mom doesn't know much about it, just that it is a different type of mint. I'm glad it does not get too cold here and that we don't have all that white stuff falling around here just on the mountains. But when we do have a terrible storm you know the one where light flashes and a terrible rumbling happens. There was one time these little frozen water balls coming down from the sky. Mom and dad was surpised and had to go see what it was. Doesn't happen here often is what they say. Stripes, I am glad your mommy saved you and still had room in her heart to have you. I think our moms will always remember the kitties before us and will show us the same love they had for them.
Babette~ I sure hope you have a good thanksgiving dinner. Hope your mommy will save you some tid bits to have as well. You like turkey and mashed potatoes? I'm kind of picky in what I eat, I don't think I would like that but maybe mom can give me a bit to see if I would like it.
Well, played with the dog tonight, scared my mom too. I was around the dog food bag hiding and decided to pop out and try to scare that dog except it was mom. Oh well. G'nite lovely kitties. Noss
wow noss, i love that kitty with the sparkly eyes! oh an noss, mamma always gives all of us turkey on thanksgiving, am looking forward to that yum! how ya doin stripes? well like i said before our whole family is coming for thanksgiving, 14 people. we are going to start our holiday movies too, IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE, A CHRISTMAS STORY. probably a new one mamma will rent also. daddy will start putting up twinkie lights in the living room for mamma the day after thanksgiving, she just loves twinkie lights. well right now we are watching STAR TREK, THE WRATH OF KHAN, daddy just got our surround sound going and it sounds like we are right there on the ENTERPRISE! well gotta go, khan is shooting at the ENTERPRISE. love and purrs babette
Mouse here, oh it is so nice to read all the posts and see the neat pics.! The grey stripped kitty in the basket has feet just like me! And my sweet Stripes, thanks for all the love and pics you sent me. I send you love back, but no pics, I'm so sorry about that. Mom misses posting pics too.
Hello new kitty Bandit! I am lucky too that mom decided to adopt me. I was a stray, but it was summer when she found me, or rather I found her. I am probably about your age. I am a good year old now. At least that's what mom thinks. I have grown too, both up and out! But I am not too fat yet.
Babitte we will be watching THE CHRISTMAS STORY of course and all the old favorites. I am looking forward to seeing THE CHRISTMAS STORY. Mom has been telling me about the Bumpis's hound dogs. I bet they aren't like Chewy!
We have lavender too Noss. And my favorite, CATNIP! We have catnip growing in several places. I get a good roll every day. And inside she put catnip on my circle toy. I play until I am worn out and then I take a nap. And now I have a bag! When mom first put it out, Kenny took it over, but when he left, I went inside and took a nap. Mom promises to get another bag or two at the grocery store. You know that place mom gets kitty food and goodies! I would love to go there and just help myself!
Well Mom wants the computer, Love to you Stripes and see you all later,
Mouse I'm glad you got a bag to nap in. We don't have any catnip growing Mom said she's tried planting it but the outdoors eat it down to the roots, she said she even tried putting a cage over it but that didn't work. I'm going outside later when its warmer. Noss you are so funny, loved the cat. Babette glad your gonna have Turkey. Love to all. XXOO to Mouse. Stripes.
Mouse here, Stripes you are soooo cute! I love to hear from you. I just came in to get dinner. It's pitch dark outside already. I just wanted you to know I am thinking about you this evening before bedtime. Take care my beauty and sleep tight, don't let the bedbugs bite!
Hello kitties. Hope your having a good night. Love the cute pictures Mouse and Stripes. Lately I have been wanting to be with mommy when ever she goes into her bedroom especially at night. I may like my boxes but still love to be on beds. And of course my routine with the dog here, chasing it and scaring it as much as I can. Been chilly here lately so trying to find sun spots to sleep in. Then at night I'll go find a warm bed to sleep in.Preferably under the blankets. Night night to all. Meows, Noss
noss, i just love the little JUST BECAUSE card! i am feeling a little down tonight, my mamma's back is really hurting her, she is supposed to have surgery, but she is afraid of being knocked out so i guess she will have to live with the pain. we are watching KING OF THE HILL, mamma and me love that show. well i have to go now, god bless you all, noss , stripes,and mouse. purrs, babette.
Mouse here! Good Morning Stripes, my sweet one, and Noss and Babette! Wow it's cold again. Mom kept me in again so the Black and White could stay in the garage. There are 4 really nice beds filled with straw that he would be okay in any of them, but she feels so sorry for him and lets him have the whole garage when it is below freezing. Just in case. She fastens him out during the day so I can go in and out. Black and White is kind of dumb. He doesn't know how to open the pet door and I hope he never learns. Already he has disrupted the whole household with his needs for over 4 years. I think he believes he lives here. If she could capture him and get him neutered he could have more freedoms here. As it is, he stinks! He got in the other day accidentally and rested on the basement steps and mom thought he had sprayed somewhere, but it was just him. When she got him out, within a short time, the smell was all gone. Poor old guy, if he would only give up. Whenever he leaves mom worries about him. But he hasn't left since I moved in here. She said he was gone for 6 months once. Usually he leaves only for 2 or 3 weeks according to mom and he hasn't been gone since last winter!
Babette I am so sorry your mom's back is really hurting now. Mom knows people who have had surgery and been so happy afterwards and then there are some who say they wished they hadn't had the surgery. I know I am happy now that I had my surgery even though it was an entirely different type. I could be like Black and White and not have all the love I get.
Noss my favorite spot right now is definitely between the sofa arm and the sheet she hangs over it! I spent the last two nights there, it is quiet, cozy and warm! Kenny mashed my bag so it won't stay open any more but mom promised to get me more.
Stripes there are too many cats around here! Punkin is trying to get me off! And not nicely either. i'm going punkin Love you Stripes.
Punkin here! Well I got rid of that smarty Mouse! I don't know if I will ever like him. Mom is spoiling him rotten. I love to lie in front of the patio door and now he is under the sheet right next to the door. I just have to swat him a time or two through the sheet, but he won't leave! In fact I try and give him a swat all the time, but he is just too fast and I am just to lazy to chase him. I keep egging Little Joe on to get him, but he is getting used to Mouse and just won't get to it.
I have been reading all the posts from you cats and want to say hello. You all sound so nice. I will chase Mouse away again some time and get back online with you. Keep warm everyone.
Punkin, glad to see you here! Remember Mouse is just a kitten yet. Noss I'm always next to Mom unless I'm outside, I like to lay on the computer desk and nap. Babette I'm sorry your Moms hurting be sure to give her lots of kittie hugs & kisses. Mouse I dreamed about you last night we each had a big ole bowl of tuna. I'm staying in today cause its kinda of cool out, think I'll get Mom to feed me than its naptime. Love You! Stripes
Noss here, I have to tell you guys something funny that happened last night. Mom caught the dog, Sachi, in the bathroom eating my poop in the litter box. She closed the door to prevent her from running out and gave her a scolding. When mom opened the door, I was right there to give her some scolding as well, as that is my litter box. Sachi ran past me but not without my 2 cents in scolding her with a whack of my paw on her behind. She ran so fast away from me. You think she got the hint? Mom, just thought it was so funny to see me right there on the other side of the door waiting for Sachi.
Babette~ I am sorry to hear that your mom's back is hurting. I hope she gets to feeling better. Watching some of those oldies movies is good.
Hello to Mouse, Punkin, and Stripes. Hey, I think it was Stripes or Mouse that liked going under the sheet hanging off the arm of the couch. Mom had some bed sheets hanging over the bed and I liked going under there. It is fun! Hope everyone has a good evening and Mouse, hope that other kitty doesn't bother you too much. Meows, Noss
i feel great this morning! and so does my mamma! the doctor changed mom's pain meds, and it is really helping with her pain! and also i did what you said stripes, i gave her lots of extra purrs,and kitty loves. and noss i am glad you got sachi, she has no business getting in your litter box. and a big purr to you punkin, hope you post often, this is such a great thread where we kitties can talk back and forth. hi mouse dear, now i must have missed it but who is this black and white one? he or she is not bothering you is he? or is he a rescue kitty? let me know okay? oh also mouse mamma saw the doctor yesterday, and she actually talked to him about doing the back surgery, cause her doctor said it could really help her, but there is one other big problem she has to QUIT SMOKING!!!!!! so mamma is getting those NICOTRAL INHALERS, she has to quit for 4 mos, before she can have the surgery, it has something to do with healing, if you smoke you do not heal as well, she is going to try though, and i am going to help her. well got to go have an early breakfast, love and purrs to all you guys. babette
Mouse here. I am in the dog house. I stayed out all night and mom had nightmares when she could sleep! I told her this morning I am not a baby and was out on my own for a few weeks and took care of myself, but she didn't seem happy at all with that answer! Stripes I didn't do anything I shouldn't, I didn't look at any other cats at all, in fact there wasn't even any around! I just hunted on the hill side and watched and listened to the nightlife. Oh it was beautiful out last night. The sky was filled with those beautiful little lights called stars and planets and a sliver of moon. I have never seen the sky so clear. Oh I wish there were no artificial lights around to smother the stars! In all my life I never saw so many and the beautiful paterns they made, dippers and everything. You know lots of people have great big poles put at their homes with lights that come on automatically at dusk and go off at daylight. They never get to enjoy night. I'm glad mom doesn't do that! She likes night too. She told me this morning as we both were enjoying the night sky that she wishes we could go out west where there are still a little wide open areas with no city stuff and we could camp out. I never met Annie, her black lab who used to go camping with her way out in the country where there were fewer lights to interfere with stars. She said maybe we could do that some day when she doesn't have to worry about Tom and Girl Dog any more. She said at least we could go camping on the hillside or the back 40 next spring. I think I will like that. She said one time she camped out and snow almost weighed the tent down! Oh, we do like the sun too! We love the two equally.
Babette, mom said she used to smoke but she quit back in 88. Ray, who I never met got sick then and his doc, who is like a vet only for 2-legged ones, told him to quit. He didn't but she did. I hope your mom does quit forever, her Ray suffered terribly the last year or so. Help her to quit Babette! It is very important for her. Give her lots of hugs and kisses and headbutts to make it easier. Oh the Black and White Tom is a feral who has lived here for at least 4 years. Mom says he would have been neutered long ago if she could get him to a vet. She even tried to catch him in a "humane" trap, but no luck. He is really mean to mom at times. She has an old cookie sheet she uses to protect her legs and scare him back down the basement steps if he gets into the house. The cookie sheets sounds a little like thunder when she shakes it and it keeps him from grabbing her leg. He has grabbed her foot before and bit her shoes. But in ways he is nice. She has been trying to tame him all this time. She can pet him on the head now, but she is very alert when doing so. He follows her and will rub on her legs but again she has to be very alert. For no reason the other day while walking with her he grabbed her leg and scratched her through her jeans. He is unpredictable as mom says. He is the same with us kitty cats. But he hasn't hurt any of us, just threatens us now and then and we respect that threat! Mom would allow him in the house proper, but he sprays and smells a little bad! Did I say a little?
Oh Noss, I love your tail about about Sachi! Girl Dog also likes cat poo. She used to go 'mining' as mom called it. The kitties have always used the sandy sides of the creek and Girl Dog had to be watched constantly to keep her from eating it. She really wasn't that bad about it, but she would eat it if she got the chance. That seems to be one thing Chewy isn't interested in, thank goodness mom says. Noss you keep that dog on the straight and narrow!
Stripes I love all the pics you and the other kitties have posted. Mom is still mad that she can't any more. You have a good day Stripes and I will dream a little dream of you in a few minutes!
Hey, everycat have a wonderful Saturday. Here it is sunny again, kind of cool, but the sun more than makes up for that.
Mouse, love ya Stripes and every cat!
Tom here, I am Mouse's much older 'brother'. I am quiet and well mannered EXCEPT when mom tries to groom me. My hair is a horrible mess, but it's my mess and leave it alone! Yesterday mom remembered she had clippers and guess what? On the counter she put me and tried to shave this horrible matt off, but I growled and growled and threatened and she didn't get very far. She promised me she would do it again in another day or so. I said I am ready! Bring it on!
I might be old, but I am very strong still. Mom is amazed at my strength. I leave bruises when I haul off and slap her. Which I do routinely as she tries to groom me. She will never learn.
I have been reading all the posts, but this is my first time posting. Stripes, Mouse is a good boy. I'm glad you like him. Punkin, even if she is a girl, isn't very sweet. She even swats at me. And when mom gives me my special food here comes Punkin who takes it away from me all the time and I let her because I am a gentleman even if she isn't a lady.
Noss and Babette I want to say hello and to all the other cats out there, I gotta go now. here comes mom to put the computer away.
Have a great Saturday,
Stripes and Mouse!
Mouse, I Stayed out once and I think Mom didn't sleep very much either as shewas so upset. She was mad at first than gave me so many hugs and kisses I had to hide. Our neighbor has one of those lights thats on all night long so the back yard is always lit. The neighbor on the other side has her front porch ligth on 24/7. so the fronts always lit. Mom fusses about it to me but said guess we have to live with it and glad we don't gotta pay their light bill. Wish I could have been there with you Mouse we could have looked at those stars together. Tom so your Mouse's big brother please look out for him ok? Glad you got away from those clippers. Babette glad your Mom feeling better. My Mom never smoked and thinks its a nasty habit. Help your Mom to quit by giving her hugs and stuff. Hello to Noss you make me laugh. Its nice out and I'm going out. Later. Love you Mouse. Your Stripes.
Tom here, Hi Stripes. Mouse is still sound asleep! He must not have slept all night. I know mom is sleepy too. I can just see you and Mouse sitting together looking at the moon and stars! You guys would look just like your picture. We live on the edge of a small town and have trees all around us. In the summer these even filter out the light from traffic on our road especially since we live far off the road. I used to camp with mom all the time. I would sit in front of the tent waiting for her. It was great sleeping under the stars listening to the owls and frogs and the ripple of the water. Once in a while a coon fight. That's living. I used to walk with mom almost every day, weather permitting, on the deer trail but this summer I had to stop. I just can't make it any more. Mom carried me a couple of times, but that bothered me. It made me feel bad. Also there was a downed tree trunk we took a break on and something happened to it this year. It just sort of disintegrated. I felt so bad when I saw that. It reminded me life is winding down. I hope mom and Mouse begin taking walks next year whether I am gone yet or not. I know she misses our walks but doesn't want to make me feel any worse than I do by taking another on our trail. I am getting more and more melancholy these days. I've had a wonderful life since the day I was found in a dumpster at a mall.
Stripes I will take care of Mouse the best I can. I will have a little talk with him about the dangers life can throw at him. Right now he is young and feels invincible.
Tom did you say your Mom found you in a dumpster? Your lucky she found you. How old are you Tom? I was real good I came in way before Mom looked for me. Were going to watch T.v I liked it when she doesn't cause I lay on her. I sorry you can't walk with your Mom anymore! I'm glad your going to look out for that Mouse! Tell him I love him and to be good! Nite to all the kitties out there! Stripes
I love you! Stripes
hi tom! i did not know mouse had an older brother, cool! i have 5 brothers and 9 sisters , but we have a big place so it is never crowded, except for mamma's lap! we have to take turns, except of course for me, she always has room for me on her right leg is where i lay. so how is your weather, it is starting to get really windy here on the oregon coast, i guess we are going to have winds gusting to 80mph. tomorrow, i love rain and wind, of course i would not like to be outside! we are all INDOOR HOT HOUSE FLOWERS, as mamma calls us. we are having a good time tonight mamma makes alot of our toys, and she just made 6 catnip sockies, so we are having a ball, she only lets us play with the catnip toys 3x a week, cause she heard one time that kitties should not have alot of catnip. we are also watching a real funny movie on dvd, OVER BOARD, with goldie hawn and kurt russell, it was filmed here in oregon too! well it is back to my catnip toy, talk to you all later. love to stripes, noss, mouse, and you too tom! purrs. babette
Stripes here Babette your Mom must be feeling better. Wow new catnip toys. Have a good time but don't go overboard Ha ! Ha ! My mom says thats a real funny movie. I played outside for a couple of hours today then came in for so chow and a much needed nap. I like to lay on Mom when she lays down, she sleeps on her side then I get on her with my tail in her face she really likes that (not). Did you hear about my Mouse's big adventure? I did that to Mom once I think she cried some until I came home, I told her I was okay but she was worried. So you Hot house flower its time for my nap. Stripes out of here!
Yep, Babette tell your mommy that it would be a good idea to quite smoking and I know it will be hard to quit. Mom's father-in-law was put in the hospital due to smoking. He couldn't breath and his lungs was filled up, pneumonia but also having that smoke guk in there. He is doing better so mom says but back to smoking. It is better to quit and improve your health but it will be something to think about. So give mommy something to think about, lots of purrs and head rubs.
Mouse~ We live out here in the forest, we do have a neighbor next door but she doesn't leave porch lights on all night and the other neighbors are across the street and don't get bothered by there lights. So we can go out here at night and see all those bright twinkling dots up in the sky. We don't live near a town so there are no other lights out here. Lots of empty lots. Mom likes to watch these things in the sky at night that streaks through. She says it is suppose to have some tonight! Oh, I'm sure Tom is just an old grouchy cat. Glad you and mom watch out for him but still be nice. You stayed out all night. Wow, your mom must've been worried about you for sure. Glad your back home.
Oh hello Tom, did not see you there. Um, be nice to Mouse and your mom okay. I'm sure you like your own ways and glad you got a nice loving home to be in. They really do love you know.
Stripes~ I love all the pretty kitty pictures you put up. If you think scolding the dog is funny wait till you here this. Mom them was laughing about it so much. I don't think Sachi and me thought it was funny. Last night, mom was at the computer, grandma watching tv, uncle outside with the phone and dad in his room. Sachi and I were upstairs. All of a sudden we heard a loud whooshing sound that made me and Sachi come running downstairs to our mommy so fast. Sachi was hiding under grandma's legs and I was fluffed out on the big comfy chair. Mom got up to see what the noise was about and come to find out it was my uncle outside who accidentally hit the propane knob on the empty propane tank on the porch. It still had some propane to let out and it made that loud noise. It sure scared us real good and made mommy them all laugh at us. Wasn't funny to me than but guess it is okay now. To me, I'm alright, I can take it. Hope all you kitties have a good night. Meows, Noss
Mouse here, Hi Babette, Stripes and Noss. Wow Noss it must have been scary, but the two of you worked together to save Mom. I predict you two will soon be curled up together. Stripes does put up great pictures. You put up the little orange kitty didn't you? Oh it's so cute I could love it to pieces. What is it about cats? And it's not all their looks, its them all together.
Babette, Tom is close to 22. Mom wants him to make it but is worried about him. He is still eating small amounts all day long, takes Miralax to soften his stool and drinks water and of course urinates. He is one of the loving cats that want to just be beside you instead of in your lap which leaves the lap for me! He is a little crabby. I'm good to him. I hope some day to reach his age and still have my mom to care for me.
Stripes I was a good boy last night. By 10 I was sound asleep and stayed there until 6 this morning. I am getting ready to go outside and check things out for the day. You be careful, love you dearly,
Stripes here I think the orange kitty came from Noss. Wow Tom is 22 you could learn alot from him so be nice to him! Mom's getting ready to go to her Dad's so gotta go! Love you Mouse!
Sandi, you kitten pic looks SOOO much like my little Phoebe, Emma's kitten!
wow! tom 22, WAY TO GO BRO! and man noss, that propane tank sounds like something to really stay away from! do you guys use propane to heat your house? we have forced air electric, and boy! mamma and grandma, really complain that it costs a paw and a hind leg in money to pay that bill, and that sounds like a lot to me too. oh on thanks giving day , mamma's sister is going to get her new camera going,(cause daddy took too long) and they will be taking lots of pictures of our big turkey stuffed bellies! are you going to watch some movies on thanksgiving? if so wich ones? mamma, and sister, and my cousin seanny, are also going to play some rummy 500. mamma, and aunt cherie play that really good so my cousin sean really has his work cut out if he thinks he can beat them! oh and as an added extra thing, we might play BEATLES TRIVIA, ! my mamma knows almost everything about the beatles, so it will be hard to beat her and my aunt cherie( she knows what mom does not!)and they always are on the same team! there is a really good kind of salad mamma makes, it has little marshamallow in it , but i cannot recall what it is called , lots of people make it on thanksgiving too, it is on the tip of my tongue and furry nose, maybe you know, if so let me know.loves and lots of purrs, and happy pre thanksgiving head butts,to you noss, and stripes, and mouse, and tom, and the rest of our crew!and god bless you all! your babette
Mouse, I agree that little orange kitten I posted is so cute. Hey, you got to hand it to us, we are so adorable looking when a kitten makes it hard to resist us. Say what? Tom is 22. Wow, that's a long time. Yep, he may be crabby but he needs to feel comfortable and loved as well.
Stripes~ I hope all is going well over at your place. Been going out at nights?
Babette~ Ooooooh, sounds like your thanksgiving is going to be a blast. Not only good food but lots of fun, wish I could be there. All those games to play, wish my family was like that. Mom likes to play games but the others not so. Hope you take lots of pictures. Oh, that salad with the marshmallows in it and I'm guessing fruit, is called Ambrosia, I think. Have a good night all. Meows, Noss
Karen, which one did you mean the one in the shoe. I got out last nite for all of 5 minutes before mom caught me. Babette thats funny about your big turkey stuffed bellies, I wish your Mom could post pictures. Sounds like theres going to be a lot of fun at your place. My Mom plays games on the computer cause she doesn't have anyone else but me to play with. So Mouse my sweet hope your being good. Purrs & meows to all the furkids. Love to Mouse! Stripes.
P.S. to Babette's question. Our propane tanks are for the stove that runs on propane. The tank that was set off accidentally was an empty one on the porch that still had a little bit in it. They are 5 gallon ones that we get filled up in town. G-nite all. Noss
Mouse here, Hi Stripes, I'm glad your mom is on the alert for you getting outside. Mom has very mixed emotions about the safety of night versus day. She says a kitty is more safe at night from the two legged critters and their 4 wheeled monsters, but there are large owls if you are a small one. Days have hawks and people. I hope all that made expense. In short, Sandi, keep up the care of my Stripes! I stayed in again last night but am getting ready to check the bird feeders shortly. I love chasing the squirrels who visit. Take care little one, love you!
Noss, my mom has a kitty foot fetish! When she saw that little kitty foot reaching she went awwww! I love it! I noticed she likes my feet too!
Hi Babette! We have a couple of those propane tanks on the deck for our grill also. Our home heat is electric with a heat pump which is also an air conditioner. Mom doesn't keep it very warm because of the cost. But warm enough. If it feels just too cold she has a neat little Eden Pure heater some one gave her to heat the room we are in. It hasn't been cold enough yet, but she brought it out just in case. I'm glad I have a heavy warm fur coat!
The squirrels are coming, I have to go and save the food for the birds though mom says she likes to feed the squirrels too!
Love you Stripes and all have a good day, enjoy your sunshine.
Morning to all. Mom says I've been a good girl so I'm getting Tuna later. That's more than I can say for that dumb bird that's been making noise all morning, if she'd open the cage I'd take care of that! We have a gas furance for heat. Mom gets help with her bill every year from something call project now, cause she doesn't have a lot of money, its based on your income, plus were on a budget whatever that is, as long as she feeds me I'm okay! Mouse enjoy those squirrels we have black ones on the empty lot across the road next to what mom calls the murder house. Stripes loves Mouse!
This is for Noss, It reminded me of you. hee hee! Stripes
Hello kitties. Thank you so much for that picture Stripes! It is hilarious, that is exactly how I fell. LOL. Oh my, a good one there.So how big is that bird you got over there? MMMM...I'm saying thanksgiving is around the corner for you. Ha, Ha. Your lucky and Mouse too, you got squirrels over there to keep you amused. All I got is the dog.
Hi everyone! Ajax here. My brothers and I are pestering the dogs and making the humans in our house fustraded with us. I'll probably just yack a hairball in there shoes tonight anyways. I like everyones pics...Thanks!
Hey Ajax good to see you here so tell us a little about you & your brothers. Noss that dumb bird is a 30 year old cockatiel( he'd probalty be tough) He was given to Mom along time ago maybe26 years ago! His name is Sam but Mom calls him some other names shut up is one of the nicer ones. I'll getting outside so will be back. Where's my Mouse? Stripes.
Hi to all cats. Especially to stripes and new kitty Ajax and Noss and Mouse and Babette and Tom and Punkin and new kitty Bandit,
I hope I got everyone. It has been so long. Mommy has been busy and Daddy too., They use my computer so I can't get on so much. They almost got a new kitty! on Saturday. Daddy fell in love with her at Petco. But he is allergic. He also did not want to worry about FeLV and FIV since she is too young to be tested, At kleast he thinks of us!
Our neighbor Lincoln comes to visit. He is a big kitty with long hair. We like him. We are indoor kitties but Lincoln comes up on the deck and Mommy opens the slider. We sniff noses with him and we like him. We have other kitties visit too but we do not like them. There is little grey kitty and big orange and white kitty. I am ever vigilant at guarding against these kitty invaders. Scout is even more so. She gets really worked up. Actually she sometimes does with Lincoln but I tell her that he is OK.
Time to nap now.
Hi there Ajax! Mouse here. I just woke up from a mid-morning nap. Oh that felt good! But I hear I missed a little excitement. Little Joe brought a live and well chipmunk to the deck and no one woke me up! Bah, humbug! They better wake me next time or I might just hack up a few hairballs!
I have to go, Love you Stripes,
Hi Stripes, Mouse here wanting to say hello. I hope you and your mom are okay. I miss you,
Mouse your Brother Tom sure is a nice looking cat, Don't worry I love you! So have you had any more wild adventures lately? I was sleeping on top of the bird cage when Mom said you send me a message.. So you missed all the excitement with the chipmonk, . Mom saved me from the big gray outdoor cat today, he tried to get in and I was scared to go out but she moved him so I could get by. Then she had to move him so I could come back in. That's what Mom's do! Talk to you later my sweet Mouse! Stripes.
Hello everyone Ajax here again....I did hack a hairball up in my humans boot and missed the litter box just to make a statement to em. I'm a Ragdoll that likes to lounge and sprawl out in front of doors that make the people in my house step over me....I don't like closed doors at all. My brothers are the same way when it comes to this. We Rags are big loveable fellows and are sisters are the same way. We love being touched and loved. I have four rescue girls that I like the most. Tortietude rules!
Well hello Ajax. Nice to see a new kitty in here. What kind of pestering do you and your brothers do to the dogs? I actually love to pester the dog here. I will chase her around to show who is boss around here. Last night I actually strutted on by in front of the safety gate separating us. She just looks on especially when I get loving from my mommy and I look at her and give her the look like ha, ha, I'm getting some love and your not. It is fun.
Mouse~ What did little Joe do with the chipmunk? Did your mommy get all excited seeing it? Hope it went back home okay.
Roy~ Wow, you would have another little kitty if your mommy and dad decided to bring it home. Do you think Scout would approve? Sounds like he would be very alert to other cats around and may take some time getting use to. But it would be nice having a little one around to play with.
Stripes~ Thanks for sharing Mouse's brother Tom's picture. He looks so cute sleeping in the puzzle box. Amazing how we can curl up into a tight ball into something so small. Yeah, we make ourselves fit. So that bird is 30 yrs. old. How long do those things live? That is pretty long. Mom them had a parrot once. Noisiest thing ever. Glad they gave it away to someone who had more time for it. Okay then. Night to all kitties here. Meows~Noss
Sally we mighty Ragdolls actually take over the dogs bed. It ticks those dogs off like no ones business and they snivel to the humans.......so pathetic like. Nevertheless those dastardly humans move us closer to them so the dogs can have there bed....pfffft! Tonight.....WE ATTACK!
Mouse here, hey first things first. I gotta say hello to the love of my life, Stripes! Hello Stripes, we got good moms don't we? She helps you in and out like my mom does. No one tries to hurt me like Little Joe used to, but I am still at the bottom of the totem pole and when Rosie, Punkin, Little Joe wants somrthing I let them have it. Kenny and Tom are very nice. They never threaten me or try to take something away. Thanks for having your mom post Tom's picture. Just think I have only been here on earth for a year or so and it seems like a life time, well I guess it is a lifetime, my lifetime, and Tom will be 22 in 4 more months. I think he is as old as the pyramids mom told me all about. She loves archeology, what ever that is.
Boy Ajax, you sound like a very interesting kitty. I don't think much about your dog buddies though. I have 2 and Chewy is my best buddy. He plays with me and we chase squirrels together and sleep together lots of times. Not always of course cause there are so many great places to sleep that poor Chewy can't get into like me. Girl Dog is an old dog and she doesn't play much, but she is good and sleeps with me at times. She likes me because I am warm and she tends to be cold any more. Have you tried to be friends with your dogs?
I don't know if the chipmunk got back to his original home because I don't know where Little Joe found it but I know he got safely away from the lion's, uh, cat's den. Mom says she wished I could have seen the proud look on Little Joe's face. I wish so too! I wish I could have seen the chipmunk and then I bet he wouldn't have gotten away safely! I am quick! Mom said he was a cute little bugger specially since he had lost most of his tail before. It sounds like he had a very close encounter some time previously.
Noss, Garfield's picture reminds me of the other night I stayed out all night. The stars were big and beautiful for the first time I can remember. I've been staying in cause Mom wants me to. I do stay out until about 9 pm so I get a little time
lwants something, she just hisses at me and I respect her wishes.
Hey there was a glitch in my computer, I don't know what happened. But it's time for my morning nap anyway, I may not be here tomorrow. Mom says we aren't going to have turkey day, what ever that is, until this weekend and then she will fix us a turkey. She is going out to a friends for a pork roast dinner.
You all be careful, and mucho love to my Stripes, mi amore.
Mouse this is what I do to that gray cat in my dreams anyway. Yes were lucky in our Moms. I didn't know my Mouse could speak French! Mi Amore to you also. Glad your having Thanksgiving this weekend. I won't be here tomorrow as Mom's going to her dad's. Ajax , you sound like you have a lot of fun like Noss does with those dogs. I'm staying in and napping today as a little chilly out. Love you Mouse!
Happy Thanksgiving to all the furkids, enjoy the day, have lots of goodies. Stripes
Mouse here, Hi Stripes, I won't be on tomorrow either. At least I don't think so. Mom is going over to a friends house for Thanksgiving. I just got up from my afternoon nap. Boy some times it is hard to work all my naps in! I made it today. Stripes you really have great dreams. I bet you could do that to that cat even when you are awake cause I think you are a supercat. I would help if you needed any help.
You take care, wish I could come over and visit tomorrow while our moms are gone. Te amo, Stripes.
Wow, Ajax! Your like me just having fun with the dog, or dogs in your case. How many of them there? I only have one to worry about. If I got to sit in mom's chair, the dog starts whining as she wants the chair. Well, tuff, she is too big for it anyways and mom doesn't want her on it. She has her own bed you know. But I am getting use to having the dog in here and we get along fine as long as the dog does not chase me. Because I won't tolerate that, I will turn around and chase it back and watch her run. Ha, ha.LOL.
Mouse~ Glad to hear that chipmunk got away fine. Yeah, I noticed a glitch happened in your first message there. I thought maybe you put a picture on there and it did not show.
Stripes~ nice pictures. I guess we will be taking a break tomorrow as well as it will be busy here. Hope you all have a nice thanksgiving day. Meows to all. Noss
Mouse here, Hey Noss, what's cooking? Mom says we are going to have that turkey thing today. I'm excited! But not too excited to take my morning nap.
Mom's neighbor has lost her kitty, comehere is her name. Her family was over for a Thanksgiving dinner on Wednesday. Mom was outside walking through the woods and up and down the creek helping to look for her Wednesday night after dark and I helped. Also the first thing yesterday morning. Mom gets so sad when something like that happens. She gets to worrying about us then. She has already called for her today. It was daylight when she disappeared. Pray for her.
Well I miss my Stripes. I hope her mom and grandpa had a nice Thanksgiving, kicking back and enjoying. Love you Stripes,
Stripes here, So your having your dinner today huh, don't pig out too much save room for dessert! I'll pray for come here also. Her mommy must be sad. I see know one is here yet they must all have fat thanksgiving turkey bellies and sleeping it off. I have to stay in today cause its really windy here and I sneak out yesterday morning so mom had to come home early since it rained and she loves me and didn't want me to get wet. Think I'll nap today. Love you Mouse.
Hi kitties!! Bandit here. It is so sad to hear about the missing kitty, comehere. I still remember when I was lost; it was so cold and scary. The outside is full of big animals, some with 4 legs and some with 2. My mom has 2 and she's not scary. I think I'll just stay inside with her where it's warm. The wind is howling around the house this afternoon and mom says we are going to have a storm. Snow...brrrrrrr. That is the white stuff that was on the ground when I was lost. I hope they find comehere!!
Boy is there ever alot of cool pictures in here. I know we have pictures but I don't know how to put them on here....I will have to ask Roxy. Roxy is in a bad mood today because mom says she's not kidding about putting her on a diet. I don't know what that is but judging from how grumpy Roxy is, it can't be good. I wonder if we all have to get on a diet and I wonder if there is enough room for us all on this diet 'cuz Roxy is pretty fat and Savanna isn't all that skinny? I don't want to get squished!!
Ajax...you sound like you have a pretty rowdy house. Sometimes some people come to visit mom and bring their dog but I get used to it pretty fast. It's nicer than Savanna, which isn't hard to accomplish by the way. There is another dog that comes to visit and mom makes the people tie it up outside because it chases us around inside. We laugh at it through the windows...stupid thing gets all tied up around the pole and then barks and howls and cries...it's pitiful and funny as anything.
Oh no, I think Savanna the beast just woke up. I think I hear her walking across the kitchen floor. She will be looking for me soon so I think I'll go find a cool place to nap till later. Mom is busy right now or else I'd be sleeping in her lap...my favorite place in the world.
Ciao everyone!! Have a meowtastic weekend

Hello all kitties, Nossy girl here. Mouse I am so sorry to hear about the lost kitty of your neighbors. That is really sad and I would help out too looking for it. I know how worried mom gets if I ever were to get out since I am use to being indoors. There are things outside that I could get into trouble with like other dogs, cats and cars. I really do hope and pray that the lost kitty gets found or comes back home. We had some turkey cooking yesterday and now have left overs. Then that little two legged girl ccame by today and bugged the heck out of me. Mom just shooed me away to the room for awhile.
Stripes~ Your mom loves you so much to think of you when it started raining and come back home quickly to let you back in. Hope the wind has stopped. Here we are actually suppose to have some thunder storms happening. Don't like those, they scare me. Mom say there is snow on the mountains here. Where? I can't see them from the window. But that is what the news says.
Bandit~ So Roxy has to go on a diet? How much does Roxy weigh? I only weigh about 13 pounds. Mom tried getting me some of that healthy cat food and I refused to eat it, touch it or sniff it. Don't get me on that stuff and I won't eat it. He,he, it is fun watching dogs from a safe spot cry and whine. Well, if this dog is going to be chasing you around, nope you don't want it inside.
Last night mom tried to bring me downstairs by carrying me and the dog startled me by jumping up at her. I freaked and kind of clawed my mom's face by accident. Nothing major just a nice claw poke by the chin. She wasn't mad at me and calmed me down. She knew it wasn't my fault and I just reacted to the dog. Once settled down, the dog and me is fine as long as it stays its distance. Well, hope everyone has a great weekend. Meow and purrs, Noss
Hi my baby Stripes! and Noss and Bandit. Well I got turkey yesterday. I hope to have some more today. I can't help but think of Comehere this morning. Here I am all cozy warm and she isn't home. The worse part is the not knowing as mom says. Yesterday afternoon mom ran for the binoculars, she thought she saw a kitty in the back 40 but it was just leaves caught in a stick. It did look like a kitty. Comehere is a tortie with white feet. Mom said she was going to take Chewy for a walk downstream and look some more for her. Chewy has great eyes and smeller.
I am going to take my nap now. Love you stripes
Stripes here, Good to see everyone. I'm staying in today I was out for 5 minutes its too chilly for me. Mouse, glad you got Turkey do you like it better than Tuna? I said a pray for Comehere, hope shes found soon. I'm going to nap alot today as there isn't anything else to do. had tuna earlier. love you Mouse!
Hello to Mouse and Stripes. So any news on Comehere? Did chewy find anything out there? Sure hope the kitty gets found. It must be getting cold out there. Okay, take care everyone. Just a real quick hello and anxious if Mouse found anything. Aloha, Noss
