Mouse here, beautiful pics Noss and my lovely Stripes. Okay, tell me cats, neither mom nor me is very computer literate. I see the word 'tag' some times, is that what the pics are called? That seems to be the next thing I want to learn about. I have heard them called something else too, but can't remember what. I stayed in all night last night. Black and White had everycat blocked out. Mom had to close the basement door so he wouldn't come into the house. Everycat is crabby now. They like to go outside to potty lots of times even in bad weather and it really wasn't bad last night. A little cold, but not bad. Little Joe got fastened in the basement,. he couldn't come upstairs and he was crabby. Mom knows now after 4 years Black and White will never go to his old home. He likes it here too much. He does upset the routine but Mom can't let him go cold and hungry. He likes to nap on the top step leading into the hallway. No one can get up or down the steps. Including mom. He is very possessive of that location. This morning mom got the cookie sheet out to get down the steps to put out food for him and let Little Joe come in. Black and White is afraid of the cookie sheet. Well, here is the link to the previous thread..,.,http://www.care2.com/c2c/groups/disc.html?gpp=47&pst=1702199 Love you Stripes Mouse
Stripes here this is what I call tags or image. Sorry everyone is crabby! Hope all the cats get lots of goodies on Christmas. I love you Mouse. >^..^< Stripes xxoo's
Hi Feline Friends! I'm gettin' very anxious.... I've been waiting -- and watching -- for Santa! Mummy tells me he's not comin' until tomorrow night. But, I'm so excited, I can hardly wait! I've my own stocking, and it's a great big one! I had Mummy hang it on the front door for me. Wanna be sure Santa can see it as he's comin' up my street, ya know! I've tried very hard to be a good girl, so I hope Santa fills my stocking full! Well, I need to get back to my window and watch for signs of Santa.... Hope y'all have a very Merry Christmas!
Hello to all. Yes, Ginger Christmas is tomorrow. I do hope you get all the goodies you wanted. Mom will be getting me something but won't have it till tomorrow.
Mouse~ Sorry to hear of your kitty friends getting all crabby there.Hope you all get some goodies for x-mas. Hey is your mom going to make some mackeral cookies for you cats?
Stripes~ have you been a good kitty? I've been trying to be good here. So far so good. Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas!! Meows, Noss
Hi cats.....Savanna here. I've been hiding in mom's room for a few days now because there are a bunch of two-leggers visiting and they brought the little one that is always trying to grab me or pick me up. It's alot more peaceful in here, even if I have to share the space with Bandit and Roxy. They don't like the little 2 legger any more than I do. I used to hide behind the drapes and wait for it to run by so I could give it a little slash with my claws but mom yelled at me and made me stay downstairs in the basement. Now I just dream about it......one day maybe when nobody is looking..........
There is a giant cat living in our back yard. He looks bigger than the dog next door so I'm glad mom doesn't want to rescue him. Mom says he's called a lynx and he's a wild animal but she keeps using words like handsome and majestic and I'm getting nervous. I'm pretty sure that cat would eat me, Roxy and Bandit for dinner in one quick bite......life would be awfully hectic. I'd better keep an eye on things.
We have a great big beautiful tree in the livingroom and I would so like to go over and give it a smell. Everytime any of us gets near it, somebody yells at us so we haven't gotten too close yet. The little 2 legger running around doesn't make it any easier to get close to it. Bandit says she's gonna climb up to the top. I say she doesn't get anywhere near it I know, this is NOT my first indoor tree. They guard it like it's a catnip tree or something.
Anyway, I'm going to go bug mom and see if she'll give me a treat. She's usually a sucker at these times that we get locked away in the bedroom. Meows and purrs to all; have a very merry Christmas and remember, when someone falls down the chimney tonight, it's ok.....it's only Santa and he's supposed to be there on Christmas Eve!!!
Merry Christmas to all my furcats. I got my present early good thing cause I've been getting into all kinds of trouble, I just want Mom to pay attention to me and get off that computer and hold me. Sorry you had 2 leggers over, I hide also. Theres birds outside that I've been at the window talking to sure want to eat one but its cold out so I've been stuck in the house. Hugs to all. Merry catmas! Love & kisses to my Mouse. Stripes.
Mouse here. Oh it is a wonderful Christmas Eve Day cause you all came for a chat! Hi Ginger. Looking good girl, hi Noss, hi Savanna! And of course a big hi and hug for Stripes, the love of my life! Guess what Little Joe did? He ran me up a tree and kept me there for about 15 minutes, but I didn't mind, there was a birdfeeder hanging real close and the birds kept coming in....mom was out before daylight filling all of them up just so I could watch them. He finally seen I was enjoying being close to the hungry birds and left. He is in his window bed sound asleep now. That's where I am going to be, in my bed soon. I've been up for several hours now. It's nap time again. I think I am glad I don't have any of those 2 leggers. It's enough just having Little Joe and Black and White. Isn't that some name, Black and White? Remember when Comehere got lost because of 2 leggers? She was gone almost 2 weeks. Her medical checkup after being lost found some heart problem and she was suffering from congestive heart failure. The vet said the stress probably caused it. Poor little thing lost 3 pounds while gone. Her mom said she would not leave her side now and is in her lap the moment she sits down. She is on heart meds now and her mom loves her so much and is so thankful she is back home where she belongs. She should be okay as long as she gets her meds, food and love. And she is getting all that. She is a tortie. I don't know if I mentioned that. Her mom said having Comehere home is all the Christmas she could wish for. Anyway, moms keep your furkids safe from 2 leggers!
Take care everycat! Be safe and have a wonderful Christmas. Stripes thanks for all the love you send me, that makes Christmas every day.
love you Mouse.
Hello to all you kitties out there. Merry Christmas to all. Savanna! So glad to see you here. Wow, that Lynx in your back yard, yep, better watch out. I think he is bigger than a cat but pretty wild. I would like to watch from indoors as well. Yep, I had two leggers visit here today as well. Even the littel two legger, who do you think put this bow on me. I kept to myself in the room most of the time out of the way. Had a wonderful morning, had some catnipt, my scratchbox and just blissfully had my fill and took a nap. Of course mom gave me lots of loving as usual. Hey, maybe when that tree is all done, maybe your mom will let you guys near the tree to explore?
Mouse~ I am happy that Comehere's mom is happy that she came home and it is the greatest Christmas for her. I think that is a happy ending. All those birds must be fun to watch. I bet they are hungry out there with that white stuff covering everything now. I'm sure your mom will provide them good food to eat for the winter. You have such a caring and loving mom.
Stripes~ hope you had fun on your Christmas morning. Anything surprising happened?
Take care all kitties out there. Mewy Christmas, Noss
Mouse here, well Christ has come and gone. I hope the spirit stays on. So a Merry Wednesday everycat!
Oh Savanna, how wonderful to have a lynx in your neighborhood. They are just wonderful, beautiful animals. Mom and I would love to watch one from inside our home too.
Noss, your picture is a beauty, I must get Little Joe online to say hello to you. Little Joe is a handsome cat too. I just know if I could introduct you to him he would be nicer to me. Wish e luck!!!
Aw Stripes how was your Christmas day? I know you opened everything early, but surely there was a little something extra for you. Like a special treat? What about your birdie? Did he get a special treat too? I ripped the round toy scratching pad almost to pieces. Mom says that's okay, she has a spare refill. I am tough! Not as tough as Little Joe though. I was bored. Mom was gone all afternoon and I had to do something! I couldn't get on the computer to talk to you. Well Stripes, you have a wonderful day. Keep Christmas in your heart along with me,
Stripes here. I got Turkey(yum) so little pompom balls to play with and lots of kisses(she doesn't know when to stop) Wow Mouse you must have loved your gift good thing she got a refill. Noss you look pretty good with that bow on. Hope all the fur kids got goodies also. I love you Mouse!xxoo's Stripes >^**^<
Hi Noss! My name is Mink. I'm black too and my Mom says I have an oriental face. (Mom's note: Mink's face is long and triangular.) You look beautiful with your Christmas bow. Around here bows don't last long. We have little furries and they love to chase bows or tunnel and slide in the tissue paper.
We had snow here. I don't like it very much. It makes my toes cold and wet. Luckily we can all just stay inside and snooze on Mom's nice warm bed.
Welcome Mink, where do you live? The outdoor cats got a heated water bowl fo Christmas, now their water isn't frozen. Their all nice and warm in there straw filled house, my Mom's dad built it it even has a window to let the sun in. Mouse I love you. Stripes.
Hello to Stripes, Mouse and now Minks! Sounds like you all had a good Christmas day. Yeah, mom will recycle the wrapping papers, tissues and ribbons. So I don't get to play with it. Hey Mink, would love to see a picture of you.
Stripes~ That sounds like a good present there for the outdoor cats. A nice heated water bowl to keep there water from freezing up. You had turkey, well mom made ham. She tried giving me a piece to see if I would like it, nope, I don't want it. I'm really finicky at what I like to eat, so ham is not one of them for me. I mostly stick to my dry cat food and canned food.
Mouse~ I have seen Little Joe's picture and he is quite a handsome cat. Maybe he'll be nicer to you if he sees my picture on here and give a shout hello. I think scratching pads are wonderful! Especially with catnip on it.
Well, not much else happening here today. Sun finally came out and got to warm up. Mom get a present from a friend. It is a little flower in a pot that moves by itself if left in sunlight. Powered by the sun to make its leaves moves and the flower. I just had to go sniff that thing and make sure it wasn't really alive. Okay kitties, have a g-nite. Noss
Mouse here! Welcome Mink, I have 3 black housemates, Little Joe, Rosie and Punkin. Little Joe is a little mean tempered, but seems to be mellowing out a little with me. I think he was jealous.
Oh Noss, Rosie is a pork freak. She loves anything that is related to pork. Mom gives her a little bite of anything she wants. Not too much though. Little Joe is asleep right now or I would get him on. I think he will be nicer if he ever meets you. Little Rosie who looks a lot like you is just about the only one who will eat people food. When she found mom at a state park one summer she was about starved and was so sick. But anyway I guess at the park she was a scavenger of anything that wouldn't eat her. And there must not have been much.
Stripes, mom got aggravated at me last night. At bedtime I wanted to go outside even if it was snowy and cold!!!! With my warm fur coat that doesn't bother me. Well she finally gave up but told me that she had to keep the basement door closed because Black and White was there and she didn't want him to forget and come upstairs into the house so I would have to stay in the basement, which I did. It is comfortable down there too. Warm beds, food and water. I just have to watch out for Little Joe who spends time there. He was good last night. It was so nice of your mom to get the heated water bowl for the outdoor cats. I bet Santa was nice to her for doing that. I'm glad he was nice to you too! I love those little pompom balls. I chase them all over the house! Keep warm and dry my Stripes, love you,
Stripes, I lve in Virginia and I share my home ith 18 other fur folk and, of course my mom. Mom took me in after a fried of hers rescued me as a sick abandoned kitten. She's good about giving us a home, that's why there are so many of us.
Wegot Pawbreakers for Christmas! They're these neat balls made of catnip and something mom calls beswax. We play with them, lick them and even eat them. Lot's of fun.
Hi Mouse! Hi Noss!
Stripes Here. Mink those Pawbreakers sound pretty cool Wow 18th other fur kids. Bet Virginia is pretty.. I'm being nice to My Mom as its her Birthday tomorrow> I haven't even opened the gift she got but been smelling it it smells like dog. (her brother & sister in-law gave it to her they have one) Mouse I wish we could play with those pompoms together.Mom has a headache today so been laying & napping on her. The dumb Bird got a honey stick for Christmas. Love you Mouse.
Hello everyone. Noss here. Wow Mink those Pawbreakers sounds good to get. I may even bug my mom to look up for some. You got 18 other fur kids living with you. My goodness that is a lot. I bet your mom gives each and everyone one of you the specialy love and attention you need. Glad your mom rescued you.
Mouse~ I'm glad to hear that your mom rescued Rosie. So she loves people food. Me, I am pretty picky. Only certain things like char sui is my favorite and if dad is eating one of those beef sticks, I want to eat it. Keep warm now.
Stripes ~ Happy birthday to your mom and hope she enjoys her day. Be good for her. So the bird got a honeystick for christmas. The dog here got a stuffed ducky that would quack whenever she clamped down on it but it doesn't any more. I think she broke it. Mom is going to plant me some cat nip to have. Yay! Keep warm out there okay. Noss
well i am pretty bummed last week my grandma, had a tia, mamma has been taking care of her and she is now totally back to normal, but my daddy had to go to the hospital cause his kidneys were shutting down, he is okay now they got his kidneys to work , he was severly de hydrated, the problem is mamma is not paying me much attention, i understand though, she has to take care of gramma and daddy, but i guess i am not used to her not being here constantly , and also she is getting a little overwhelmed herself, she has a really bad back, so she has to remember to watch herself too. well even with all the stress, we had a great christmas, mamma got us all 4 new cool scratching posts/houses! they are really fun, oh and we got a new litter maid that makes 5 we have now! those things are scary at first , but they really help mom and dad with the cleaning. looking forward to new years eve, mamma has promised a kitty movie marathon, starting with THAT DARN CAT, THE CAT FROM OUTER SPACE,AND THE 3 LIVES OF THOMASINA, my 3 favorites! well got to go , just thought i would let you guys in on what is going on. love to stripes, noss, and mouse, and all my other kitty friends on here. loads of purrs, and god bless. your babette
Hi, Mouse here. Well Babette, Mink, Noss and of course my Stripes, the new year is on its way. Mom has promised to stay home with us for New Year's Eve and Day and not go anywhere! That makes us all happy. She will be cooking kraut and country ribs. That will make Rosie happy, she will even eat pork cooked in kraut! Now that is a pork fan.
Stripes, take care of your mom! My mom is still aggravated with me. I want to be in the basement with the big guys. She checks when ever she wakes up at night to see if I want to come up, but it's nice there! Well it's nap time and I am ready, I think mom wants one too!
Love you Stripes,
Little Joe here. Hey Noss, well Mouse was right, you are a gorgeous cat! I've been wanting to drop in and say hello for some time now. I'm a very busy cat and don't have much time for the computer. I have to keep critters like chipmunks, squirrels and mice out of the garage. So far I have done a good job. Mom only found 2 mice this year so far, one big one and one kinda little. I also have to keep Mouse in his place! He would take over the entire house if I let him. Well I gotta go back to work! There's a squirrel on the deck eating birdseed!!!!
Bye for now
Stripes Here, I gave Mom A present for her Birthday, I upchucked in the middle of her bed she was not amused. Mink sounds like you got a great Mom. Noss I'm picking too I like dry food, Tuna & turkey only. Babette good to see you hear sorry about your Grandma And Dad hope there doing better. What's a litter maid? Wow all those cat movies in one day, have fun! Mouse I love you.
Whiskers here...Meow-y belated Cat-mas to everycat here! My catmom gave me a tent and catnip to play with But she also put a scratchy tall red hat with white stuff at the bottom on my head and tried to take pictures, and I scampered away. Anyone else have to wear anything other than your own glamorous fur? How did you handle it?? Stripes, I don't understand why your mommy didn't like her present...Babette, Mink, Noss, Little Joe and everycat here, happy new year and may it bring lots of treats and brushings!!
Noss here. Hi Babette~ So sorry to hear that your wasn't well and I hope they are getting back to feeling 100% better. Your mom may be busy but I'm sure when things are settled down she'll be paying you attention again. She still loves you.Glad you got some new scratching posts. Yeah, mom here likes those old movies too.Hope your mom gets to feeling better with her back as well.
Hello Mouse~ Sounds like you like the basement now. Is it cozier in there? So your mom is staying home New Years as well. Yeah, mommy doesn't like traveling on New Years. She rather be home having a nice meal and some wine. The boys here which is my daddy and uncle will be popping some fireworks. Hey, dad tried to set off a fire work today and the dog is scared of it. But she will be indoors when they do pop some fireworks as well as I. So remember all you kitties out there. Stay indoors if possible to be safe from the fireworks.
Hi Little Joe~ Will you be indoors for the night on New Years eve? I don't know if where you and Mouse live if there are people who pop fireworks. Probably not, so I guess your safe out there. More country right. So you keep busy chasing those squirrels and other little critters.
Hey Stripes~ What did you eat to upchuck on your mom's bed? I bet your mom was none too pleased with you for that. I think what Babette meant by a littermaid is one of those litter boxes that is automated to clean out your poops and pees with using the clumping type litter. Mom was thinking about one of those but I think it would scare the crap out of me even more. LOL.
Hi Whiskers~ As you can see from my pic here, I don't look too happy with a red bow put on my head. So nope, I don't think I would like to wear anything on me. I probably just plop down and won't move.
Well, Happy New Year to all you kitties. Remember to stay safe if you are in an area where people will pop fireworks. G-nite all. Noss
Mouse here, good morning everyone. Whiskers, good to hear from you again. It sounds like you had a pretty good Christmas. I'm glad. Babette I glad your mom's mom and dad are all better and things will be back to normal shortly. Hang in there and give her lots of love.
Noss we have snow! Lots of it this morning. And yes the basement is very comfortable and I am sleeping every night down there now. By choice, not by orders. Black and White is the dumbest cat I have ever known. Would you believe with 5 new inches of snow out there he went out last night! He isn't back yet. I know he goes to a neighbor's barn where there are some cats. The neighbor feeds them so when he comes back he isn't skinny, Mom was looking at him yesterday thinking how chunky he is now compared to where he was 4 years ago. Mom says I am gettin chunky too! And it has only been a few months! This is just chunky place.
Little Joe and Punkin just went outside but they will be back in shortly. And I am going to take a nap soon. I still nap in my old bed during the day.
Stripes I'm sorry you upchucked on your mom's bed. It happens. Rosie and Tom will upchuck a little now and then. Rosie seems to always do it in the bed. Tom is usually on the floor. Just a couple more days and Tom will be in the 22 year of his life year. His birthday is in February. Little Chewy didn't want to eat this morning. That is odd. The kitty food is still on the floor and mom even offered Chewy a bite of chicken and he turned it down. Odd, I'll have to keep an eye on him. I'll let mom know if something is really wrong. Stripes, take care of yourself and I love you,
Stripes here, i don't know what i ate as I don't eat anything besides dry, tuna & turkey. Mom stays home on New Years eve now that she's older. I've been sleeping on top of that dumb bird cage. Mouse you keep an eye on Chewy for your Mom. Hello to all the other fur kids here. Well its nap time. Later!
Hello to all the fur kids. Mouse I forgot to tell you I love you.
Whiskers here Hi everycat! Noss, thank you for understanding, and might I add that you do look handsome with that red bow Mouse, thanks, my furmom thinks that every day is Catmas around here lol. Don't worry about being chunky, I'm chunky too and the mean guy who puts things in me and gives me shots was worried when I lost a pound. My catmom got worried that I was gaining too much weight so all of a sudden we only got wet food
Stripes, love that cartoon
Well my catmom is going to sleep now and my favorite spot is next to her so I bid all your furry guys and gals good night
Paws n claws, Whiskers
Mouse~ My mom thinks that I am getting pretty chunky as well. All I eat is the dry and canned cat food. What is she talking about. I hardly get any scraps from her as I only eat certain things. Kitty treats from the bag is my favorite tho'. My tummy does hang low and swing back and forth when I walk, does that count as being chunky? Oh no, tell your mom to keep an eye on Chewy if he doesn't feel like eating or his normal amount of food. Does he have a sore tooth maybe? Well, hope he gets to feeling better otherwise he'll have to go see that special doctor.
Stripes~ your so funny, love that cartoon. Doesn't that bird nip at you if your sleeping on top of its cage? Wouldn't think the bird would allow you to do that.
Whiskers~ Hope you got in a good catnap with your mom. Do you have snow there as well? Only snow we get is up on our mountains here.
Okay, have a good night all you cats. Meows~~Noss
Stripes here Mom has a cover on top of the cage that I lay on he can't see me. We have a little snow here but not much, but its cold out, I'm staying in where its warm. Bed time for me & mom. Love you Mouse. Good to see Noss,& Whiskers here! Nite. Purrs & Meows.
Wishing all the cats a happy new year. love you Mouse. wish you were here so we could share a bowl of milk.
Happy New Year to Mouse, Noss, Whiskers, Babette, Ginger, Little Joe, Rosie,Savanna and all the furcats. Love you Mouse.
Mouse here! Oh Stripes, I love the expression on that black and white kitty!!! How are you sweetheart? Things have been a little weird around here. Poor Rosie has been to two vets in 2 days. She is okay for now. She will go back in sometime in February for her yearly check up and to see how the new meds are working. Mom still wishes I would stay with her instead of the basement at night. I always take a nap in my bed in the daytime though. It is very comfortable too. It's New Year's Eve, can you believe it? I don't think any of us will be able to stay up until midnight, but all the guns and firecrackers going off will wake us and we can help usher the new year in. My Chewy dog is some dog. Mom couldn't fine Rosie anywhere and she told him to find her, and he did. In just a minute or so. She will worry about Rosie for a long time. If she gets out of site, mom goes looking for her.
I wish all of you a Happy New Year and it's too bad we can't get together and have a jolly old time but too many miles and time zones separate us. Stripes consider yourself kissed to bring in the New Year!!! Love you, Mouse
Mouse here, Happy New Year's Day! Stripes I think Black and White is still celebrating. He left last night and isn't back yet. That is good for us, we can go and come as we want without doors being closed.
Hey Mouse, Glad you were or Chewy was able to find Rosie. So your still sleeping in the basement. Aroudn our area, there is three houses, one neighbor wasn't home but mom them were the only ones popping some fireworks. But not too long, just until 8pm. I stay in grandma's room all night and the dog did not bother me last night as she was afraid of the fireworks. Kind of interested in watching from the window but wouldn't want to get near it. then further down the road you can here alot of the neighbors setting off fireworks, a lot of illegal bombs as well and of course gun shots. It become noisy at midnight but all was quiet a little after. I am just glad to be indoors when all this noise is going on outside.
Stripes~ Cute picture of the kitten saying no drinkin' and driven. Well, did not have to worry about mom them, they stayed home. Hope you had a good night over there.
Okay kitties, hope your starting your 2013 to a good start. Happy New Year to all! Noss
Mouse has black & white came home yet? I think its cool that Chewy can find Rosie! I love you Mouse. Its cold here so I'm stuck in the house been napping alot. Later. Stripes!
Hi Stripes and Noss. Mouse here. Hey Black and White made it back for breakfast this morning. He is sawing logs now!
It is warm in the sun this afternoon. Chewy and Kenny are soaking up the sun in front of the storm door and I was soaking it up outside. Rosie even came out with me for a few minutes. I'm still sleeping in the basement. Mom tried to keep me up here with her last night but I drove her crazy scratching on the door frames and pacing and she finally gave up again. So Little Joe, Black and White and I have laid claim to the basement. As I said it is warm and comfortable there. Sometimes even Punkin stays with us.
It's the new year, 2013. Sounds scary with the number 13. Time will tell. Well Noss and my sweeetheart Stripes, have a good day. I am going to go soak up more sunshine.
Stripes here, Mouse I heard that you been picking on Little Joe, & Chewy broke it up! I slept under the covers with Mom last night as it was 5 degrees out, kept her feet warm, Ha! Ha!. Goodnight my sweet Mouse. Love you.
Mouse where are you?
Hello to Mouse & Stripes. How's about a kitty kiss, Stripes. From your sweet Mouse that is. That's why I put up this pic. It has been chilly here but glad no snow. The sun was out and it was a beautiful day. I got to sun myself in my mom's room in the sun spot for awhile but got interrupted by Sachi three times today. Just because Dad's worker was dropping of some gravel today, Sachi the dog had to come inside for awhile till he left as she would keep barking at him and his kids. And each time she would come into the room and disturb me. So I got woken up each time. The third time, that was it, I got up and was so mad that I started chasing the dog around the house. Mom was laughing so much at me. I was serious, I got disturb too many times and you don't mess with a catnap especially in the warm sun spot. Do you agree with me? Glad to hear you all are keeping warm in your favorite spots. I don't know if I could handle snow here. I wonder if cats wear booties for the snow like the dogs do. Kitty hugs to you all. Nossy girl
This post was modified from its original form on 03 Jan, 19:04
hi stripes,noss, and mouse, and everyone else! well the household is getting back to normal, grandma is doing great, no permanent damage, and daddy's kidney function is up to 80 percent! i am a little worried about mamma though, she is trying to take care of everything, and she has a bad back, and the lupus sle, so she is trying not to get overwhelmed. well i have really enjoyed our kitty tree houses, they are fun! i will try to post more often, love and purrs to everyone! your babette
Mouse here, Here I am Stripes! Mom isn't purposely keeping us apart! She is just down in the dumps and has not gotten the computer out so I could use it. She felt sorry for me today not gettting to talk to you cats, Noss and Babette and my sweet Stripes. I love that picture of the kitty kiss. I wish that was really Stripes and me. Babette I'm so glad your mom's family is doing great. Tell her to take care of herself now. Rest and enjoy your company. Noss my Chewy doesn't wear booties, but he does wear a sweater when he is outside. Mom wishes she could afford to buy him booties and a regular wind breaker coat. She waits til the warmest part of the day and is careful where she walks him. She keeps him out of the salt and snow as much as possible. Chewy has very short hair but between you and me he has enough fat to keep him warm. Don't tell him I said so!!! He's really a good boy.
Black and White has been going out every other night tomcatting and coming back in and sleeping and eating to prepare for another night out. He isn't back yet this morning, but that isn't unusual.
It looks like we are going to have a little sunshine again today. We had some yesterday but we had a terrible wind, so cold, I think it came from the polar ice caps, both of them, North and South!
Rosie seems to be doing okay. She isn't eating as much as mom wants, but she get pills morning and night. She ran me out of Mom's bed last night. I was all cuddled up beside mom on the down comforter and Rosie said get off this bed and when Rosie speaks, I listen! She's a tough bird, well cat. So I went back to the basement with Little Joe and Punkin.
I think it's time for my catnap. I also don't like to be bothered when napping. As soon as the sun comes in the back door mom will open the big door to let the sun in through the storm door.
Take care everycat! Love to all of you especially my Stripes.
Stripes here. Good to hear from you my sweet Mouse. Give your Mom lots of kittie kisses to make her feel better. Glad Rosie is doing okay. Chewy would look good in boots. So black & white is tom catting. Its snowing here today its in the 30's but the wind is cold. I've been playing with my pompoms alot . Getting ready for my nap. Hello Babette and Noss good to see you here! Getting sleepy. Later.
Hi all kitties....Bandit here. I hope everyone is having a fun weekend, wherever you live. We have alot of white snow on the ground outside and it is very cold; I am glad I am an inside cat because I remember the feeling of that cold white stuff.
Anyway, I just wanted to say hi and wish everyone a happy New Year. My mom has been sick for a week now and I have spent all my time lying on the bed. She doesn't like being alone when she doesn't feel well and I like making her feel better. Purrs to everyone!!
Noss here. Hey Babette~ So glad to hear that things are getting better over there. I'm sure once things are settled down, your mommy will have time for all you kitties. I bet your tree house is so much fun to play in. I want one. I think I will have to bug mom in getting me one.
Mouse~ hello to you. So Chewy wears a coat before he goes outside in the snow? He must look so cute. I bet he would look even cuter with booties on as well. So BW has been going out at nights tom catting. I wonder what he finds out there. Long as he doesn't bug you. Good to hear Rosie is okay and she is being bossy with who gets the bed. Maybe one night she'll share the bed with you.
Hello to Stripes and Bandit~ I know it must be so cold out there, so keep warm and cuddled up with your moms. I love keeping warm at nights on mom's bed. She got this new blanket that is all soft and fuzzy. Feels so good to sleep on that. Bandit, I hope your mom feels better. Give her lots of kitty cuddles and kisses. Okay everyone. Have a good night. Noss
Stripes here, Mom just told me she read on chit cat, that Teri lost her beloved Munchkin. Lets all say a pray for her.
Good nite sweet mouse. I love you! Nite to all the rest of you!
Mouse here. Hi Bandit, Babette and Stripes this morning. It is still cold and there is still some snow and ice. I wish you were here Stripes to keep me warm! We could sit outside on the deck and watch for a careless squirrel. Together we could get him! Mom doesn't want me to try by myself, though I don't see why. Where's Noss this morning? Mom told me about Teri's little furkid and we already said a prayer to help her over the Rainbow Bridge. We came close to losing Rosie last week at this time. She still isn't eating as much as mom wants her to, but she seems to feel good. Keep her in your prayers too. She is a good girl except she doesn't want to share mom's bed with me.
Stripes I can't stay on long right now. Mom is going to Church this morning, but I will be back.
Stay warm and dry, I'll be back after a long nap and mom gets back.
Love you especially Stripes and of course the rest of you too. We gotta stick together.
Mouse here! I told you I would be back. Things are still going awry for mom. I love that word, awry! She just found out she was hacked in her email account. She has changed her password. Has anyone else had a problem with yahoo mail? Mom told me to ask. She heard from some one that upteem million passwords from yahoo was posted somewhere. Any one else heard this? I know kitties are pretty darn smart and listen to everything concerning computers.
Well Stripes my love, Black and White came back and filled up, took a long nap and is gone again! And I am here with mom keeping warm and being loved. Does anyone else love to follow their mom into the bathroom? I do. She is captive there and I get lots of loving. I check the flowers out, the little trash basket and the sink when the water is running. A nice, little place. Just cat size.
Stripes and all cats, talk to you tomorrow.
Stripes Here my Mom just got home. My Mom has something called mediacom she uses Viper for her viruses. Saying prayers for Rosie, Henry and Shell's cat. except for when I had that eye thing I'm healty. I follow my Mom everywhere and I pulled one of your stunts Mouse I got into Mom's pants when she was in the bathroom, it was a warm place to take a nap. Mom says she has to answer some emails so gotta go. I'll be back. XXoo love you Mouse. Nite to all!
Thank you Stripes for that information. I am sorry to hear of Terri losing Munchkin. I will pray for her beloved kitty to make it over Rainbow Bridge and for her mom to feel better. I know it is hard for our moms to lose us when it is our time to go. Sounds like you found a warm place indeed, into your mom's pants. LOL
Mouse~ Wow, you missed me posting after Babette and Bandit. Sounds like BW is having his night out fun. Long as he doesn't get into any trouble and comes back home from time to time. Hmmm, I better tell my mom to check her yahoo email account. Maybe even time to change the passwords. How can those passwords there be posted? The more I hear how yahoo is, the more it doesn't sound good. Hope you get the problem solved.
Okay, we've been having crummy weather here. Lots of rain and cold. Suppose to have some winds as well. Not liking it all and of course I snuggle up all day on the bed. Then the dog gets to stay indoors as well. Better not disturb my cat nap. Which is what I will be doing now. Have a good day you all. Noss
Mouse here, first hello my beautiful Stripes! Then an apology to Noss. Sorry I missed your post, I was in a hurry, mom was going to shut me down. Black and White came home earlier this morning. He ate a can of FF fish and shrimp and some dry food and is sound asleep again! No injuries which mom worries about. She has had to sneak antibotics in his food in years past.
Still cold last night and this morning. We are supposed to get a warming trend with a temp close to 60 Saturday. Hope, hope! Mom says if the ground isn't soft then we will work on picking up little sticks and branches which have been broken by the heavy snow we had. That is fun. I follow her and grab at the branches and try to take them away from her. And Chewy does the same.
Well Stripes, I keep trying to get back into mom's pants, but she has learned to guard them. I get there and don't want to move! It is warm. When she forgets, I'll get there again!
Mom changed the password okay. She says she changes her password about ever 6 months. Now I guess it should be even more often. Bill will be here sometime and see if there is something else she can do. She is thinking about changing her email account. Not sure yet. Will decide after talking to Bill.
Love you Stripes,
Stripes here goodmorning my sweet Mouse. Mom said since the first of the year she's have to log into all her accounts, and rejoin care2 so she can post. Shes has everything saved into something called roboform which she puts in a password and it fills everything out.as she has differant passwords for differant things. glad Black & White is home. Is your Mom feeling better now. Noss wish we have your weather as its cold here! Mom has to go to a funeral so she's kicking me off. Later.
Hello everyone, Noss here.Hello to Mouse & Stripes so far. I don't know what you temps are over there to consider it cold but for us here it is 60 degrees or lower. Even when the sun is out, it does warm up a littl to 70 but still a bit chilly. I'm sure for you cats there it would be the right temperature. I stay snuggled up on someone's bed all day. Altho' this morning I was pretty frisky. running around the place. Mom had to put new sheets on the bed and so everything was a mess in the room. I wanted a bed already so ran into grandma's and she was worse. She got everything out of the storage space and was cleaning. So her room too was a mess. At least I did not have to contend with the dog being around today only at night. Okay all you cats. Hope you all keep warm and maybe the temps will warm up for you. Noss
Mouse here, Hi Princess Stripes and my good friend Noss. Your mom's roboform sounds interesting. I'm going to tell mom to look it up. She just got a message from Yahoo that her account might be compromised and to change the password and she just changed it it a week ago. So she did it again.
Noss your temps sound warm! Cold here is 30s down. It has been in the low teens several times already this winter. Last night wasn't bad. It was in the mid 30s. We are in a small warming trend. I have a great coat and it keeps me very warm. Well except where my neck fur hasn't grown out all the way yet. You remember where that Little Joe got me. It had to be shaved and drained last year. I'm ready for Little Joe now. I'm at fighting weight now. But so is Little Joe! Mom tries to keep us apart. We both were trying to help her feed the birds and deer this morning and finally she picked me up and carried me to keep us from fighting. When Little Joe gets wound up, he can't be picked up. She tried.
Black and White didn't go out last night. Mom is mad at him. He came home yesterday some time after 3 AM and when mom got up for the day, he was in the dining room and had marked her wood cabinet. She spent a lot of time trying to get rid of that horrible smell. Even I think it is horrible. It seems to be gone now. So now we can't go in and out of the house. She locked the door between the basement and the house. That was the first time he came into the house for a long time. Mom got the cookie sheet and ran him out. He's afraid of the sound the cookie sheet makes when it is shook. Like thunder. Mom began using it to keep from getting bit by him. He will bite and/or try to scratch her. Right now he is in his basement bed sound asleep.
Gotta go guys, Rosie needs her pills and I need to get out of the way!
Love you Stripes,
Stripes here will try to post more later we had a bad night as the furance went out and didn't have any heat. got a new one I hid all day as I don't like strange people. Were going to bed early as Mom didn't sleep good last night I laid on her to try and keep her warm. Mouse I love you. Good to hear from you Noss. Later. Purrs.
Noss here. Mom is getting really frustrated with the dog here. She keeps bugging her when she is trying to be busy on the computer. As for me, she will keep her distance. All I have to do is raise a paw at her and she jumps back.
Well Mouse~ it is still chilly for me here at my 60 temps. Yes, I remember the shaved part on your neck you mentioned due to Little Joe. Maybe you mom can make you a scarf to put around your neck area to keep warm. That would be nice. So Black & White came in the house unexpectedly. How did your mom get that cat spray smell out? I know they are strong smelling. Yuck. He sounds like a meany if your mom has to also worry about getting bit or scratched from him.
Stripes~ Oh no! Sorry to hear that your furnace went out. You guys must've been so cold there. I can understand how you would hide when strangers come into the house. Hope the new furnace is working well. Still doesn't hurt to keep warm by laying on your mom. Meows to all. Noss
I had a really good day with mom. she had a headache so she laid down with me most of the day. Its raining here so we stayed in bed most of the day. then we eat and had catnaps. I love my mom so much. Hope everyone is doing okay even black & white. I love you guys but I love Mouse the most. This hugs for my sweet mouse.
Hi everycat! Sounds like everyone is doing well.
Stripes, hope your catmom is feeling better. Glad you have a new fur-nace. Mouse, hope your neck is feelng better. Noss, jealous of your warm temps there, we are having about 40-50 here this coming week which is warmer than most January temps. but I miss going outside with my catmom on the patio. My catmom will only let me in the garage now.
I just woke up from sleeping in my new box to chat with you Aren't boxes great?
I have a scratch on the brige of my nose that my furmom keeps looking at. She said that dreaded word "vet" to my furdad. I think they think that I don't know what it means, but I do!! Good luck getting me into that enclosed thing with holes that they make me sit in, and then it moves too! Oh nooooo, not happening. Please pray that I do not have to go !! I better run in case they have ideas about it right now!!
TTYS wonderful kitties,
Hello all you kitties out there. Stripes, I hope your mom's headache went away. glad you got to spend some nap time with her. Such a sweet kitty.
Well hello to Whiskers. We've been having lots of rain here. Want some sunshine to warm up to but oh well, not happening yet.Hope you don't have to go see the vet. But you know if your parents are concerned about your scratch, they only want you to feel better and not see it get an infection. Might be fun to see other kitties there. I know the ride over ther might not be so thrilling. Take care and hope it doesn;t get worse. Kitty hug to you.
Hope Mouse is doing okay. G-nite to all. Noss
Mouse here! I'm going to try to post a picture for my sweet Stripes and all of you cats. Here goes......
Do you see it? Did it make it? Stripes if it did, know there is room in this bag for you too!!! I'm excited. The pic isn't that sharp or clear, but I think it pasted! Donna I owe you big time.
Noss, the reason Black and White isn't neutered and adopted like me is because he is terribly mean. Without her cookie sheet mom couldn't even go up or down the basement stairs when he is in a tizzy. She tried to capture him in a hav-a-heart trap but no luck. Well since he sprayed on wood, mom used Murphy's oil soap to wash it off 3 times and then used Pledge furniture polish after it dried for the last time. And it is all gone. Mom doesn't have the heart to run him away. She does have an attachment to him. He went out again last night and isn't back yet. She put his breakfast out for him.
gota go, punkin is here
Oh Mouse good to see you in your bag!wish I was there! raining here so going to nap after I eat. Whiskers your fur parents just want whats best for you. I hate that word vet too, as their always poking and sticking things where the sun doesn't shine. later. Love you mouse.
Mouse here. Hi Whiskers! I was so excited about posting pictures again I forgot to say hi, but maybe it was Punkin that caused me to forget. When Punkin comes, the computer goes off. She is very pushy and bossy about that. Stripes is right, your mom only wants what is best for you. I'm proof of that. I have an almost bare neck and had a sore rear end for a day or two and had pins or something stuck in me, but now I am a healthy and happy big boy! Yeah, Whiskers, boxes and bags are great fun! Keep warm and dry.
Stripes, it rained all morning but now the clouds and sun comes and goes. It is kind of nice. All the Kitties want out on the deck. They keep scaring my birds and squirrels away. Oh well, that's life. And of course Black and White came back okay and had his breakfast and is sound asleep in his basement bed. You know Stripes, there is good and bad in all the seasons. Right now I wish it was Spring. I know we will have some more snowy, windy, freezing weather and I do have this great furcoat, but I love the sun so much more. How about you sweet thing?
Well, bye for now everyone, I am overdue for my nap. Sweet dreams Stripes and all.
Love you Stripes,
Stripes here. Mouse I love you. What have you been doing besides watching birds and squirrels. I've been sleeping alot. Mom got me some tuna but she can't get it open as that can opener thing isn't working. Well its time to meow at the door maybe I'll get outside. Later.
Thank you Stripes for the lovely Aloha picture! Mom even has some fuscha flowers growing in her backyard as well. Did you get your can of tuna finally? My mom just uses the old can opener where she has to turn the handle. But I know that sound and when a can is being opened. Yum.I wish I had squirrels to watch. Sometimes those little green birds will come in mom's night blooming jasmine tree and eat the seeds on it. I'll watch those birds since it is close to the window.
Mouse~ We had a super nice day today, blue sky and sunshine, no rain. Can you believe it. Mom was so happy to enjoy the day, grandma did a load of laundry to hang out and dry. And you know me, when fresh clean clothes come in, I want to be right one there. He, he. So the day warmed up to about 80 degrees. Wish you guys could've experienced the warm day here. Oh Mouse, love that action shot of you in the paper bag. Love playing the bags and boxes. Hope we have more nice days like those to come.
Aloha everyone! Noss

Whiskers here. Stripes and Noss, thank you for your kind furry words (lol Stripes, you are so right about sticking things where they shouldn't!!) The scratch on my nose is getting better (my Furmom thinks it's an abrasion from playing with my sister Gingersnap) so I heard her tell my furdad that she doesn't want to take me to the vet just yet. Yayyy!!!
Mouse, you look so cute in your bag. Can I play in it too? Hope Punkin is not bossy today!! I am glad you are ok now after you went to the vet. Maybe they do serve a purpose then!
Today I slept most of the day and then meowed when Gingersnap drank out of my water bowl. I cry-catted to my Furmom and she got me a new bowl of water just for me. It is funny that she knows exactly what I am saying sometimes. Are you guys picky about your bowls too? lol.
Well time to go, Furmom is going to sleep and I like to sleep at the end of my furparents' bed. After all, one can never get enough sleep, right?
Cat hugs to all
Mouse here, Hi Whiskers, Noss and sweet Stripes. Whiskers, everyone can come and play in my bag! We'll make room in it! No none of us are particular about the water bowl. We have large bowl and even Chewy drinks from it. Outside we have another one. Mom brings that one in for the night so no coons get in it. We are particular about that. Also when it is real cold we don't leave it out at all. ut oh punkin here she is a pain she just knows when I am on comp.
noss, oh it was in lo 60s here. 80 sounds great
love you Stripes
