Shasta here. Mom is having some major doctor trouble so is very stressed out today. She says y'all can read about it in the Chit Chat thread. Suffice it to say, she could be in real trouble in the next week or so with her medication and her pain pump. Oh, when Mom went to take care of the outside cats this morning Sassy came back! Mom was so excited. Some good news for today at least. Mom said  Sassy looked good. Can't stay on today b'cuz Mom has an application to process for that rescue group she volunteers for, MCRA. Read everycat's post though. Stripes, I'm sorry you got swatted. I'm sure you didn't mean anything bad. I really like your "Nobody's Purrfect" picture. Mouse, how exciting about that fox. That's pretty cool. It's cool about the deer too. Noss, that is very funny about those fish wanting their food. But fish can be like that. Dad's fish in his huge fish tank are like that. They know when it's time to eat and they show it! I really liked your picture too. I know I probably missed some cats and I'm sorry but it was really good to see everycat here. I gotta go now.

 

Take care everycat and have a purrfect day.

Headbutts,

Shasta

Mouse here, you're a pistol Stripes! Oodles of fun and cute as a button. I love that picture! Enjoy being outside. I came in a little while ago and am ready for a catnap before dinner.

Shasta mom read the chit chat thread about your mom's new, hateful doctor! All us cats should give him the ole evil eye! Will she be able to get Dr. Bacon back if he ever gets into the group? I think I like the name Dr. Bacon. Chewy said he did too!

Love you Stripes,

Hey, Mouse. Mom and Dad and I finally saw Elysium today. It was awesome! Dad kept falling asleep during it.

Hello everyone~ Noss here.

Mouse~ how sweet of your mom to feed that fox and mama deer. That must be so neat to be able to watch them out there and enjoy the different animals that come around. All I got is the birds to watch and the fish in the bowl.

Shasta~ I'll be sure to tell mom to read what your mom wrote on chit chat thread. Hope all goes well. Glad Sassy came back. Your mom really must keep herself busy with the rescue group. What kind of fishes does your dad have? My mom just has guppies but their tails are really colorful.

Stripes~ Sorry you got swatted on the butt. Were you being a bad kitty again? What did you do?

Laura~ I heard that movie was a good one to see. Maybe it may be easier to see at home on DVD if it is a long movie.

Well, not much else happening here. The dog just made a mess downstairs. She tore the stuffing out in one of her toys. I don't think mom is going to be happy with that. Meows~ Noss

Mouse here. You know Noss there is something about dogs. Our little stuffed animals last forever as cute as brand new. Chewy always takes the 'guts' out of her toys and then runs around carrying and playing with the 'skins'. He does it to our toys too if he finds them unattended. I don't get it. Oh well, even Chewy has many dog traits even though he is a cat lover. He went to a friends house a couple days ago and they had a dog and a young kitten, maybe 10 weeks old and he and the kitten got along great. Chewy didn't like the dog though.

Speaking of dogs, the lab and little poodle are loose again and just chased my deer away. Chewy is furious. His hair on his back is standing straight up and he is growling and wants out to chase the dogs away. None of us chase our deer. I lie down a few feet away and watch them eat. They are pretty for not being a cat.

I am so glad I have my sister Wosie. We run and play and sound like a herd of elephants mom says. What's a herd of elephants? It is down right cold this morning. Mom had windows open a little last night. She says it feels like mid fall. She and Chewy will head out for their walk soon.

Mom wants to drop in on the Chit Chat so I better say, See ya later!

Love you Stripes,
Mouse

Shasta here. Mom was able to get in with Dr Bacon but it's going to cost her a lot of money bbb'cuz she has to pay the out of network fee. That'll be $600 but she did find out she can make payments so it'll be 3 installments of $200. Mom says Dr Bacon is a wonderful doctor and she knew he wouldn't let her down like that other doctor did. Yes, let's give him the ol' evil eye as Mouse said. Black Beauty and Sunshine were outside this morning. Sassy wasn't there. Mom's just waiting on the applicant to call back with regards to that application she's working for MCRA. Once the applicant does call back Mom will interview her then do a write-up to post before the group so they can all vote. As for my brothers, they're all in different spots around our home taking a catnap. Not much else going on around here.

 

Stripes, cute picture! So you saw my mom get out of the shower huh? Well, Mom says that's okay as she's used to us cats seeing her. She can't close the bathroom door when she showers b'cuz we all try to get in and she doesn't want the carpet clawed up by the door. She does close the door when there's company at the house. Guess she didn't consider you company! Enjoy being outside with your mom.

 

Mouse, thanks for being outraged for my mom. She was really upset by that doctor and Dad is really ticked off. I mean big time ticked off. I've never seen him so mad about something. Yeah, Dr Bacon's a good name and Mom says he's a wonderful doctor. He won't let MOm go into withdrawals from her medication. Yes, dogs are different even when they really like cats. Mom used to have a dog but she had to give him up after a year in an apartment when he didn't adjust from having a yard. Mom says he was a Sheltie named Blaze and she keeps pictures of him out. She really misses him but he now lives on a ranch in central Texas with a female Sheltie for company. Blaze thought he was a cat really. He was raised with cats the 3.5 years Mom had him. He was only around dogs for 3 months of that time when he was around his parents. Mom says he didn't know he was a dog 'til he met them! She really loved Blaze and it was very hard on her to give him up. He was rough on toys too Mom says. It was way before my time. Sorry those other dogs got out and chased your deer. That's terrible. Sounds like you and Wosie really get along. I don't play like that  with any of my brothers. They're too rough for me and I usually growl if they get too close. After all, I'm a princess aand I have standards! LOL Just kidding. Mom and Dad do call me princess but I try not to let it go to my head! So, it's cool there huh? It's pretty hot here. After all that rain we got a lot of humidity along with the heat so it was pretty bad outside.

 

Laura, glad you liked Elysium.

 

Noss, yes, the rescue group keeps Mom kind of busy. She likes knowing that she helps put kitties in a fur-ever home. Thanks for telling your mom to read the Chit Chat thread. Dad has a 75 gallon aquarium with mostly mollies though he also has 3 clown loaches, a couple reticulated loaches {I think that's what they're called}, some otocynclus {? sp} which are little algae eaters, and a couple catfish. It's a pretty cool aquariuma nd it's fun to watch all those fish. I jump up on the table where they are and it makes the fish "jumpy" where they move really fast to another part of the tank. Dad says it's like me starting a tidal wave! Guppies are cool little fish. They have some pretty ones. Dad used to have some but they all died. They got old or something b'cuz Dad had them for a long time.

 

Take care everycat. I'm gonna let Mom have the computer back now. Have a purrfect day.

You should go see it, Sally. It was action packed. I got my shoe inserts and wore them this morning.



You should really go see it, Darla. It was really good. The actor that played Michellto in the Borgias played the sleeper agent. It was a little hard to understand what he said because his accent was South African.

Hello everyone, Noss here~

Mouse~ I think Sachi would be the same way as Chewy is. She likes cats, has never been around other dogs. Even when she sees the neighbors cats outside, she actually whines for them, not really barking. Hmmm, beginning to wonder if she knows she is a dog. I hardly play with my toys but Sachi loves to get them. Hope those dogs are back in their own yard and doesn't chase away your deers. As for elephants, I think they are big gray 4 legged animals.Elephant mini graphics

Shasta~ Glad your mom is getting the help again from her original doctor. Sometimes if you've been with a doctor long enough, he knows how you feel already and knows what you need. With a new Dr. it is like starting over again. So your princess too. LOL. I think we all feel like having to be treated like one. Mom had to look up all those interesting fishes your dad has. So we seen some pics of them and think they are really neat looking. One of the loaches looks like a fish we have here called a jojo. Looks like a little eel with fins. The last fish you mentioned is called otocinclus. I think they are all pretty neat looking. You must have fun watching them fishes.Fish mini graphics

Laura~ Nice to know the movie is action packed. Is that the one with Sylvester Stallone and Bruce Willis in it? I know there is a movie with them in it together. I bet those new insoles are helping your feet feel better when walking. I had to do the same with a pair of shoes of mine.Hello kitty mini graphics

Buni~Sounds like the gang there is up to there mischievous antics. My mom has a few guppy fishes in the fish bowl in the house then she has a big plastic pond with the fishes in there as well. Mom did notice that the fish in the bowl which she got them when they were babies are growing big but no colorful fan tails. They all look like the female ones. Mom is guessing they are females as usually in the animal world the males are the ones that are colorful and the females a drab plain gray or brown. I don't know if it is the same for fishes. Maybe Shasta's dad knows about that. So Shasta can you ask your dad? I was just watching a bird out by mom's window this morning. It was those little green birds called the Japanese white eye. They love to eat those white little fruits on the night blooming jasmine tree. Mom loves to watch them too.Birds mini graphics

I had some tuna tonight for supper so I'm good. Ready for a cat nap now. Cats mini graphicsGood-night all. Hope Stripes checks in.  Meows~ Noss

Mouse here. Hey it was two dogs chasing my deer. A black lab and a tiny white poodle. They live some where down the road and once in a while they break out. Mom worries about them. They always show up here. Mom says there is a labradoodle now. Where they are mixing the breeds. I hope they don't start mixing us with a dog, like a catoodle or something. Gross thought. I love Chewy, but don't want to be part Chewy and eat nasty stuff and roll in even nastier stuff some times.

Buni, you are one smart cookie, I mean furkid. Sorry your mom caught on too soon about the chicken. I hope you got at least one big bite first. Chewy would have managed at least one if not two!

Shasta, I feel mom's sorrow when she remembers similar things, like giving her filly away to a false friend and then having to give up a beagle once. She misses them still. I hope she never has to give me up.

Oh the coons got in the garage through the kitty door again last night. Mom dropped a bottle of sweetened tea on the floor and she soaked part of it up with paper towels before she hosed it out. The coons got in the trash container and tore the paper up all over the floor and did a few other messes, like pulling the cat beds off of their chairs. She should have known something was wrong when Chewy was having problems settling down for the night. She will listen to him the next time!

Oh, so now I know what an elephant is! Thanks Noss. Well mom says I am fat and I am gray but I don't think I am that big!!!! Those little kitties throwing their toy in the sink is so cute. Sue used to throw every thing off of counters and tables that she could move. She looked just like those twins, even to the tail flipping.

Hi Laura. I'm glad you enjoyed your movie and that you now have your shoe inserts.

Are you outside enjoying the great outdoors Stripes? I'm going to skip my morning nap and go out and sit on my tree trunk and watch the world go by. It is big enough I just might nap there in the sunshine, if it ever reaches here. I miss you Stripes,

Good morning everycat! Shasta here. Mom says that both Black Beauty and Sassy were outside this morning when she put out food/fresh water. Black Beauty met her at the door and Sassy came running up as Mom was doing the water. Mom's not worried about Sunshine b'cuz she says Sunshine doesn't always come everyday. Scamp is laying on the end of the computer desk this morning. That's his spot. He likes laying there when Mom's on the computer. I've got dibs on the printer this morning as soon as I'm done here. Kona's got a spot on the floor over by Mom's walker, Cinder's in the living room and Osiris is in the bedroom. All quiet here.

 

Laura, will have to wait for it to come out on NetFlix or DVD or something b'cuz I don't go to movies. I can't sit thru a whole movie without needing to get up and walk around. Nice to know it was a good movie  though.

 

Buni, yes, we need to set up a time to circle that bad doctor. He really upset Mom. Made her cry and she was so shocked that a doctor could care less if she went into withdrawal by not getting her medicine. Eric sure was funny jumping out of the tunnel at you. Kona hides sometimes and jumps out at us, even Mom and Dad. He's a funny cat. You were so crafty with your mom's chicken.

 

Noss, thanks, we're also glad Mom's original doctor is going to help her. She's been going to him for close to 12-13 years so he really knows all about Mom's pain. Yeah, we got some cool looking fish. That one loach does look like a little eel and it will swim in circles so it's very cool to watch.  Yes, that's how you spell otocinclus! That's Mom's favorite fish. Dad's favorite are the clown loaches. One of ours is huge, much bigger than the other 2,  and Dad calls him Klaus. I'll be sure to ask Dad about guppies and their tails when they're female. But I think you're right in that the females are less colorful than the males. You have a night-blooming jasmine tree? Mom loves the smell of jasmine, it's her favorite scent. She has a perfume oil that is jasmine. She'd love to get body lotion and shower gel in jasmine but she doesn't buy from those expensive places. She can tell our human sister to get it for her though! Cool you were watching those birds. Love the picture of the kittens flushing their toy.

 

Mouse, yes, I feel Mom's sorrow too. Your poor mom with her horse and that filly. She had to give up a beagle too? Oh, I'm so sorry. I'm sure she'll never give you up. Oh man, the coons sure made a mess! Can your mom lock the kitty door at night once all the cats are in for the night? Enjoy your tree trunk. Hope the sun reaches it and you can have a catnap in the sun.

 

Stripes, sure do miss you.

 

Take care everycat and have a purrfect day.

Shasta here. Just checking back in b'cuz I have the answer to Noss' question about guppies. Mom talked to Dad on the phone and Dad says that, yes, the female guppies are much plainer than the males and don't have the big, colorful tails.

 

Stripes, great to see you here. Hope your mom had a good visit with her nephew and his wife. You're funny in saying you would've been shopping! Love the picture!

 

Take care everycat and have a purrfect day.

No, it wasn't, Sally. I'm not sure what movie you're thinking about, but that wasn't it. I'm still having some residual pain, so I can't quite tell yet.



That's fine, Darla. I'm off to Grandma's tomorrow for a week. Really looking forward to it.

Mouse here. Boy Stripes I wish your mom had left your computer out for you, I think we all would have liked presents! I guess that's why none of our moms allow us to have a free rein with it.

Black and White slept in the garage last night. He said it was too cool outside. Any way the reason the cat door can't be locked into the garage is because of Little Joe and Black and White. So the coons come in and out. If they don't quit soon mom is going to set the trap again. We hate that in case they have babies but they have to stay out. We are tired of their messes.

Love you Stripes

good night Scraps, graphics and Commentslove you mouse. I sent your mom a invite to be friends again, tell her.

Smileys mini graphicsMouse~ you are so funny. I'm sure you don't have to worry about becoming a catadoodle. I know, dogs like to roll in stinky stuff and even eat it sometimes, yuck! But yes, I do have to say that they make a good watch dog and alert us to something that is wrong. Like those coons getting into the garage. Is there some way of putting out a repellent that will keep them away? Must be really upsetting for your mom to wake up in the morning to a mess they made. Oh, the kittens in the pic is actually flushing a toy down the toilet.LOL.

Shasta~Rainbow mini graphicsHappy to hear that Black Beauty and Sassy was out there for your mom in the morning. Maybe Sunshine will come by often as well. Tell your mom and dad thanks for the information for my mom on her guppies. At least now she knows that they are females for sure. Very strange, because she scooped them all when they were tiny babies and now that they are growing a little bigger, we can see no signs of colorful tails yet. They all look like females. But mom says that is oky. Maybe she will find a colorful one to put in there.

Thank you Laura. I know there is a movie out with Bruce Willis and Sylvester Stallone but not sure what the title is.Rainbow mini graphics

Stripes~ Good nite to you as well. Hope you have a good sleep.Stars mini graphics

Mouse here. Hi Noss, I think I was thinking 'sink' because that is one of the places Sue always pushed things. Mom keeps the lid down on the toilet all the time so none of us will jump on it and fall in. Mom said that happened a few times before. I don't know about a repellant for coons. It might affect me too. Oh well, as long as Little Joe and Black and White are here we guess we will have to put up with them. What mom doesn't understand is for 30 years she lived here with no problem. The last five have been terrible. Black and White slept in the garage again. He doesn't like cool weather, but he is old.

Shasta mom says she doesn't remember the scent Jasmine. Is it sort of Oriental? She loves the Oriental, or what she thinks, is Oriental scents. She loves perfumes but so many people anymore have allergies and scents bother them so mom only wears them occasionally when she needs a really good nights sleep. She says they are soothing. She feels sorry for those who can't enjoy them.

Did mom tell chit chat about buying Charmin 'unscented' by accident? She set a roll out and put the rest in the closet and left the room. She went back in a few minutes later and smelled something unpleasant. She started smelling around and opened the closet door and wow. What ever it was, was located there, it was the unscented Charmin. She sent a note to Charmin about it and their reply, perfectly plausible, it had been stored, shipped or something next to something and had picked up it's odor. And that reminds me, mom was grousing about a bag boy who packed her butter with onions. Oh well, that's life.

Time to help mom hang up the second load of laundry. I like that.

love you Stripes

Good morning everycat! Shasta here. Mom got he rmeds from Dr Bacon yesterday so all's good there. Mom says Black Beauty and Sunshine were outside this morning but no Sassy. Not much going on here, all the boys are quiet this morning though Kona's playing in the trash can again. He always tears up the paper he finds in there. I've got dibs on the printer again this morning! Mom gets frustrated when Cinder lays on the printer b'cuz he always seems to turn on the buttons and "print" something out. The other day he printed some copies of pictures Dad left in the scanner/copier. Ours is a printer/scanner/copier in one. We had a palmetto bug {a huge "water bug" that looks kind of like a giant roach} in the house yesterday! Mom was not a happy camper. It started early yesterday morning when Kona started meowing in the kitchen and climbing to the refridgerator and trying to get to the ceiling. Mom looked to see what he was looking at and saw the bug on our kitchen light then crawling on the ceiling. She used a broom to knock it to the kitchen floor. Scamp then tried to get it. Before Scamp could get it or Mom could do anything with the bug it disappeared! It must've gone under the dishwasher but Mom didn't see it move. We waited awhile but it didn't come back out and that worried Moma s she doesn't like bugs like that in the  house. Later in the afternoon, Osiris started meowing at something and Mom saw the bug on the wall in the dining room area next to the stand where she keep dishes of cat food. She used a dish towel and caught the bug then disposed of it. No more palmetto bug! Not much happening here.

 

Laura, have fun at your grandma's.

 

Mouse, I agree, I think we would all have liked presents! That probably is why our moms don't give us free rein with the computers. It's good that Black and White slept in the garage. Oh, I get why the cat door can't be locked ~ Black and White and Little Joe have to be able to get in. So, the raccoons come in even when there are cats in the garage? I'm sure y'all are tired of their messes. Trapping them huh? Can your mom look for babies when she traps them? I guess no though as there's just too much space where those babies could be. Unless the babies cry out and start to move. Maybe she could find them then assuming there are babies. Mom also keeps our toilet seat down. Sorry there's no coon repellant. Wish there was a way to keep them out of y'all's garage. Mom says she doesn't know if you'd call the jasmine sceent oriental. It's a pretty floral scent she thinks. She doesn't really know where to place it, she just think it smells good. Sorry your mom can't enjoy perfume as much as she'd like to. That's a good idea wearing it to bed. Mom may start doing that. She's got several perfumes and hardly ever uses them b'cuz she so rarely goes out. No, your mom didn't tell that Charmin Unscented story on the Chit Chat thread. What a story that is! It's cool that Charmin replied to her e-mail. How could a sacker do something like put onions in with the butter. Dad says they don't make good sackers anymore. Most of the time when he goes to HEB he ends up supervising the sacking or doing it himself to get it done right. He has the hardest time getting them to double bag the yogurt. Last time he asked the sacker twice to double bag it b'cuz it tears the bag then he ended up double bagging it himself! Hope you had fun hanging the laundry.

 

Stripes, great to see you here. Love the "good night" kitty.

 

Noss, yes, Mom likes it when both Black Beauty and Sassy are outside.  Sunshine's been coming at least every other day and that's pretty good for her. She's older and Mom doesn't worry as much about her b'cuz unfortuantely she's been left on her ownbefore and knows the ropes. She had been abandoned here then a guy moved in and adopted her. Took relatively good care of her while he was here but when he moved he left her! Don't know why he adopted her in the first place if he wasn't going to keep her. That's just not right. Poor Sunshine. Anyway, Mom knows of at least one other place Sunshine goes to get food. Mom says you're welcome for the information on guppies. If you find a male or two to put in your bowl you may find yourself with babies. Guppies are live-bearers they do not lay eggs. Of course, sometimes the babies get eaten but some of them do make it. Mollies are also live-bearers, that's one reason we have so many mollies in our aquarium.

 

Take care everycat and have a purrfect day.

Mouse here, Hi Shasta, tell Noss hello. Once in a blue moon we have one of those palmetto bugs. Wow, they are big. Earlier this year there were a couple that needed shooing out. How do they get in?


Speaking of grocery stores, mom bought bacon with a store coupon on the 14th. She went to fix a bacon tomato sandwich and no bacon! And Chewy didn't get it. She called the store and no one turned in bacon but they will replace it since we have the receipt, they know us well. No problem with trust.


Some one gave mom a tip on keeping coons out of the garage. She will try it tonight. Put plastic down in front of the door. I don't believe it will work, but moms ready to try anything by now. If that doesn't work, she and Chewy will be sleeping in the garage to scare them away until they forget about coming in,


Take care everyone

Buni here guess who found PET SUPERMARKET !!!! Have ordered 2 giant bags offfffffffffff   CAT NIP TOYS  ready for the parties,  Relax Mom let me  he he he


you see we had a gruesome day those gas men were back, drilling banging, hey Mouse tell your mom, my Mom said she takes it back, cats are quiet when they run aroung the house, want a herd of elephants, try workmen, in workmen boots, up and down wooden stairs, (we are waiting to get carpet when all this has stopped !!!!!!)

we had fun tonight , Mom chased us with scarey bubbles, mom laughed and laughed  at the way we ran away, then came back, mom even blew bubbles in our tunnels, they were supposed to smell of catnip, HUH! I think mom had been on the catnip, if you ask me?? he he he, we had to rescue mom just, a big moth flew at mom, , should have seen mom run she was saying arghhhh is it in my hair ha ha ,> Buni to the rescue I ate it mom said Buni noooo you will be sick , nope I am fine but mom said yuk

so now I am confused Guppies? are men fish? and what is a palmentto bug would it taste like moths, cause you need a big drink of water after moth treats, and labpoodle is 2 dogs, well who decided what was what? the lab is the biggest and the little white is a poodle, OKAYYYYYY  well tell them to leave the deer alone, and stay off the road crazy dogs !!!

now about these Guppies, seems Shasta , Mouse and Noss know about them, Hey Stripes what do you know? great dancing pic there Stripes, oh and those two little ones were sooo funny Noss, dropping that paper toy , to see would it float or flush , he he he

what with guppies that eat their babies, labs and poodles, then palmentto bugs, gas men , moths and catnip bubbles , it been one unusual day, and suddenly I am worn outahhhh I spy mom in her chair, that arm on the chair waiting for Buni zzzzzz, HEY MOUSE WHEN IS YOUR BIRTHDAY, WHENS THE PARTY? YOU know Eric and Jimi have a party 1st Sept, the gazebo will be ready, cool lights and music, moths and catnip !!!zzzzzzz love you Mousecateers, Shasta, Ginger Savannah zzzzzzzzzzzzz xBuni hugs xxzzzzzzzzzz xxBunixx  zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Hello every cat here~ Noss is here. Been a very rainy day today. So not much doing anything but nap. I did work out with mom this morning. I was on the bed hunched over cleaning my tail and legs so that is my exercise while mom was on the floor doing sit ups. I don't remember if I told you guys about Sachi the other night. I was in the living room with the family, just laying down relaxing. Sachi comes and starts getting some toys out of her toy box and plops it down in front of me. I think she was trying to share her toys with me. Um, thanks but no thanks as I did not feel like playing with them. But it was a nice gesture from her.

Mouse~Mice mini graphics Mom doesn't know if the night blooming jasmine is an oriental scent or not but she does love the smell of them. She planted the tree next to her bedroom window so when ever it blooms, she can smell it at night as it blooms only at night. A very heavenly smell. Sometimes she'll bring in a branch of it and put it in a vase. Way out of my reach of course and just makes the house smell good. Sorry there is no repellent for the coons. Maybe they don't like something that makes noise like a crinkly plastic bag if put on the floor there. Hope it works. As for Charmin toilet paper, if it is unscented it shouldn't have smelled of anything. I think your mom was right to contact the company. Can never be too careful.

Shasta~Yay! your mom got her meds and her regular doctor back. That is good news for her. My mom had to look up what your palmetto bugs look like. I can tell you by the way her face cringed up, she doesn't like the looks of them any better than a cockroach. Ewww! She doesn't like bugs in the house either but looks like you cats had fun watching it and trying to get it. Sachi is absolutely scared of them roaches. Dogs mini graphics I think those prickly legs is what she doesn't like. I would catch them and play with them. Mom felt one crawling up her arm one night and swatted it off. She got up and turned on the light and seen it. Got it and threw it out. So Cinder likes to be on the printer turning it on. Computer mini graphicsBetter watch out, he may get the idea of printing out his butt image while sitting on it. I use to go on the printer myself and use to turn it on. Sounds like its never a dull moment over there with you cats. Always keeping your mom and dad on their toes. Oh poor Sunshine, she was just left behind there. I'm glad your mom is such a good person to take her in and keep out the food and water for the other kitties there. I'm sure she is doing fine out there.

Buni~ Looking forward to those catnip toys! When is the next party?! Dancing and singing mini graphicssounds like you got a lot of activities going on over there as well.  Hey, catnip bubbles...really? Where did your mom get them from? My mom would like to see about getting some for me. I like chasing moths but not eating them. Oh my mom has these little fishes in a fish bowl called guppies. Fish mini graphicsMom wanted to post a pic of them here but for some reason the photo page is not really working to allow her to load a pic. So maybe she can try on the wildlife thread. Hope the weather there is nice.

Laura~ Hi there. hope all is going well with you.

Hi Donna & Newbieubiubi!! Thank you for the neat bird site.Cats mini graphics

Mouse here, Noss and Buni you two make me laugh so very much. Buni it would have been nice to get all those toys but I bet it was fun to see your mom's face when she thought you had done that. I showed mom your posts and she laughed too. We are some bunch of cats, funny, beautiful, or handsome, smart and compassionate (love that word, it's my new one). I hope our moms and dads appreciate us. And siblings.

Beautiful picture Noss and Stripes I had sweet dreams, thanks to you. Also Stripes, you couldn't have an evil laugh. You are just too sweet and good.

I'm going to go see our movie from Newbi in a few minutes. But first I get so tickled at mom and our deer. It is so funny how at the first movement in the house in the morning, deer are peering in the storm door to get moms attention. She opens the door and holds up her hand with the index finger pointing straight up and says 'just a minute guys, I'll be right there.' And they wait for her. There have been 3 bucks, 1 doe with her fawn, and 2 yearling does here this morning. Mama with the twins isn't here this morning. I guess they are sleeping in. Like I do sometimes.

The catnip is looking good. I think it will still be okay for our party.

Love you Stripes,
Mouse

Mouse here, hey neat! Do we have any computer experts here that could fix it so the birds could sing one right after another? That would be so great at our party. We could also hide the computer and turn on one of the birds and see every cat looking for the bird! We could have fun with it! Can you imagine using the box and one of those birds start singing right behind you? Fun, fun, fun. Oh I told mom to stock up on litter, we might need a lot. We have enough boxes I think. About 3 big ones and several smaller ones. And for those of us who like to go outdoors, I have a giant litter box along the creek, plus you might run into a frog or two and then if there are any fishercats there are lots and lots of little fish in the creek. Chewy will stand guard for us.

Later,

Mouse

That would be funny if Cinder took a picture of his Butt!  Did you hear about the cat nip Bubbles. Buni's mom sure knows how to have fun. Love you Mouse.

Good afternoon everycat! Shasta here. My haven't we been busy! Just another quiet day here. Dad's sorting thru his coins that he collects and some of the boys are helping him. As for me, I've called dibs on the computer room window when I'm done here.

 

Mouse, yes, those palmetto bugs sure are big. Mom doesn't like them one bit and wasn't happy that they were in the house. I have no idea how they get in. We don't get many bugs but we just got new neighbors and right before they moved in the pest control control guy sprayed  their  apartment. Mom and Dad don't get our apartment sprayed b'cuz it makes us sick. Tell your mom sorry about the bacon. It's cool the store is replacing it. Too funny when you said Chewy didn't eat it. Hope the plastic helps with the raccoons. Looking forward to your party. Is it going to be a sleepover like mine turned out to be? Have never been outside so you'll have to tell me is catching fish as fun as it sounds? I like that Chewy stands guard. Your mom's deer sound great.

 

Stripes, wow, you've been busy. Practicing your dance moves and giving your mom evil laughs all day. Love the sweet dreams kitty in the basket. Well, Cinder won't be taking a picture of his butt b'cuz the copier cover stays closed and there's a blanket on top. Somehow, he manages to push the buttons thru the blanket though.

 

Buni, wow, two giant bags of catnip toys for the parties! That sure was great of your mom to let you do that. Sorry the gas men made so much noise. Catnip bubbles huh? Interesting! So, y'all rescued your mom from a moth? Good for you. Palmetto bugs are giant {almost 2 inches}, brown bugs that look like a big roach though they're often called waterbugs. I don't think they'd taste very good and most certainly they wouldn't tast like a moth. Guppies ccome in both make and female but the males are prettier. Yes, the big ones eat their babies so do most fish even the mollies we have. I think Mouse's party is on September 12th. Can't wait for Jimi's and Eric's birthday party on the first. Is it outside though?

 

Laura, great to see you here.

 

Newbieubiubi, thank for the bird video.

 

Noss, I looked up night blooming jasmine and it says it's native to the Caribbean but grows in certain parts of the United States so I'd say it's not oriental. Mom wasn't happy to have that palmetto bug in the house either. She doesn't like them at all. Thank goodness we don't get them often. In fact, that just might be our fourth or fifth {if that many} one in 4-5 years! Mom found a nice supply of catnip bubbles on Amazon and PetCo on-line has them too.

 

Well, Osiris actually came in the computer room which means he wants Mom for something which means I have to get off the computer! I think I got everycat though. Take care everycat and have a purrfect day.

Headbutts,

I had a great day today, Sally. I went for a walk after breakfast and saw Grandma's next door neighbor Priscilla and talked to her briefly before she went to work and we will probably get together sometime next week to talk more. We went over to Khol's and bought some new walking shoes to leave here at Grandma's because the ones I have now are getting really worn, and I also bought some new panties, and then I had a nap and had tea after I woke up. What did you do today?

Good morning everycat! Shasta here. Not much going on here today. Cinder's on the printer, Scamp's on the other end of the computer desk, and Kona's on the weight bench. Osiris is in the bedroom and I've got dibs on the window again! Mom said Black Beauty was the only outside cat there again this morning.

 

Laura, glad you had a great day. Hope you have a good visit with your grandma's neighbor when y'all get together.

 

Stripes, adorable picture! Hmmmm, in the UK huh? I wonder too. I don't have a passport. Anyone know if we'll have to get one?

 

Take care everycat and have a purrfect day.

Noss here~ I sure hope everyone is having a good day.

Mouse~ Your funny yourself. Sounds like you keep yourself occupied pretty well. So neat that your friends with the deers and they let your mom know that they are there waiting for her to be fed. Must be really nice to wake up to. How has Wosie been doing? I see you got a creek to go fishing in when ever you want to. That must be so nice living next to it as long as it does not flood up to the house.

Stripes~ Yes, Honey Bee Day! Mom is always happy to see the honey bees around the Heather plants in the back yard. Means they are still around and doing good. Looking forward to Jimi and Eric's party.

Shasta~ Tell your mom thank you for letting us know where to find some catnip bubbles. That should be interesting. I did not know they had something like that. Wow!

Laura~ Hello there. Good to see you had a nice day at your grandmother's place. I just did a bit of yard work this morning, getting the grass cut down. Then I took a walk in the back garden area looking at things. I may get some ginger flowers cut and put in the vase for the house. I have wild ginger flowers growing around here and they smell so fragrant.

Okay everyone, time for supper. Got to go! Noss

Mouse here, oh good grief, I start a post and then accidentally delete it. Mom is depressed this morning so that makes me sad. I just came in from an early morning check on the world and saw the black lab and the little white poodle so the deer are late. They don't like those 2 dogs.

Punkin is sick. She will go to see the white coats today and that's not an easy task for her. She is still half wild around strangers and strange places.

You will never guess what? I picked up fleas somewhere! Mom found them yesterday and I got my Advantage. I probably checked out a groundhog burrow or something. I didn't have a lot, but there definitely were fleas. Mom found 6. She only puts on Advantage when she finds a flea.

Hey, I don't have a passport either! I bet we can't go. I've heard a rumor that pets can be held 6 months when they go into some countries. Any one else heard that?

I'm going to take a nap. I'm sad for Punkin.

Bye all cats, love you Stripes,
Mouse

Good morning everycat! Shasta here. Not much going on here. Mom's fixing to go to the pool but said I could post first.

 

Laura, that's good.

 

Noss, I told Mom you said you're welcome an dshe said "no problem". I've heard of catnip bubbles but we haven't played with them. You'll have to let me know how they are. Love the picture. Nope, will never look at my paws the same!

 

Mouse, sorry your mom is depressed and the deer are late. The owner of those dogs should keep them penned up and not let them run loose. I don't blame the deer for not liking those dogs. Sorry too that Punkin is sick and has to go see the white coats. I hope she gets better soon and doesn't get too stressed out. Oh no, fleas! Good thing your mom had Advantage. I've heard rumors that they can hold pets coming into a country but I don't know for how long. Let's ask Buni how she got to my party.

 

Take care everycat. Have a purrfect day.

Headbutts,

Shasta

Hiya Friends!

While Mummy's not right here watching everything I say -- I gotta tell you about my Sunday....  Mummy left 'bout 9:15 to go to Sunday school and church.  She always "thinks" I sleep when she's gone.  Well, she got quite a surprise when she came home yesterday!  My toys were scattered through the house.  First one, she nearly stepped on when she came in the door.  Others were strewn all over the house.  Why was she so surprised?  Well, I do have quite a few toys -- but, I very seldom play with them.  Mummy sometimes gets them out and plays with me, but I almost never play alone.  She did ask me, "What have you been doing??"  Of course I gave her my most innocent look as an answer!  Honestly, I will tell you, my friends, I did have a little "private party" while Mummy was gone.  Please don't tell on me -- okay?!

Hugz,

Ginger
