Nap-a-thon Report

Patches, Mittens and Mistrie were wonderful hostesses for the 1st annual Nap-a-thon. they were gracious and all of our needs were attended to. the planned events were wonderful, the food was delish and we all got lotsa nappin' in!

this is my special purple pillow that i took with me. (i saw some kitties admirin' it and had to keep a close watch on it so it didn't go missin'. NOT that i think anyone in this fine group would intentionally do somthin' like that, but it would be easy in all the teleportin' confusion to be next to somethin' and OOPs, it goes along with you. i would have just hated to lose my purple pillow (i almost came home with somebody's blankie and had to get off of it REAL fast!)

i also took my new black basket with me to nap in. here i am. nappin'.

all in all, it was a worthwhile event and i thank the calico ladies for hostin'. plus, PLUS, my Mom didn't even know i was gone! so there!!!!

10,000th visitor to Oreo's blog!

it was ME, it was ME, IT WAS ME !!! it was so cool, i've never done anythin' special before, so to be in such a pretigious situation was a real honor. then, THEN, today i got a really cute card and a present from Oreo and his Mom in the mail!!! just 'cause i was the 10,000th! oh, and it was a fine present.

here it is!! it's called a "door buddie" and my Mom, after she figured out how to unwrap it, hung it from the door frame. it's a really soft, silky long-tailed black mousie on a loooong black elastic.

then i JUMPED and ATTACKED and got it between my teeth!!

then i had it between my claws of death!!!

then i dragged it to the floor where we tusseled until i couldn't tussle anymore.

thanks Oreo and Oreo's Mom!! door buddies rock!

(if the 10,000th visitor gets somethin' THIS cool, i wonder what the millionth will get?????)

zoom groom

this is like a magic fingers for poodins. if you do not have a zoom groom tell your bean to run, don't walk, to your nearest pet superstore and buy one. you will not be sorry. as your bean holds the zoom groom in his or her hand and runs it over and over your soft, lustrous fur, you will instantly feel a sense of calm and relaxation wash over your furry little body, your muscles will relax, your eyes will shut, your tiny toes will
streeeeeetch out and you will breath a sigh of contentment as you drift off to a well deserved poodin nap where you will dream of fluffy clouds of soft whipped cream and pools of melted butter and big piles of tiny, pink shrimp and a bright, warm sun with catnip bushes for all, all because of the fantastic device that is called a zooooooomgroommmmmm..................ahhhhhhhh

Thursday, January 19, 2006


well, it seems like i'm just destined to be in hot water. my Mom said it was inappropriate to show our hairy sink on my blog, that she had just cleaned hair out of her brush and turned away to grab a paper towel to pick it up and throw it away and it was very rude of me to "infer" that she was goin' bald or somethin'. i tried to 'xplain that i was truly worried but she shook her head and asked where my common sense was.....then she came back and said on the heels of the "casey poop incident" i should think 'bout my behavior.....

so here i am, by myself,

what the heck is "common sense," anyway???"

Wednesday, January 18, 2006

oh my gosh!

i'm a little worried. i hopped up in the bathroom sink this morning to get a drink and this is what i found!

Sunday, January 15, 2006

conservin' energy

it's saturday. it's 26 degrees outside.
my Mom's busy. there's nothin' to do,
so i'm gonna do what i do best - guard
the premises while conservin' energy.
i'll keep an eye on the pretty red
amyrillyus at the same time.

this was not my idea!

my Mom said if i don't 'pologize to my sister i am goin' to be in a "world of trouble", whatever that is. errruuuughhh, erruughhh (clears throat):

Casey - i am very sorry i publicly humiliated you 'bout the problems you were havin' with your personal hygeine and i will never do it again no matter how bad you smell 'cause if i do Mom will lock me out in the kitty condo and i'll have to eat the straw in the doghouse and melt snow to drink (that's what she said, anyway) and i know it wasn't your fault and i shouldn't of made fun of you in front of everybody.....(Mom, is that enough already???? NOOOO????? sheesh.....) and i know you're really very pretty (gag me with a spoon) and always do your best to look nice and well groomed (is that enough??????......i guess so, she left the room)

p.s. (don't anybody ever tell my Mom 'bout this part): you did stink really bad! (like poop!)

Tuesday, January 10, 2006

my sister Casey got a butt bath!

serves her right, the little poop. she had so much poop on her furry butt my Mom and the Dad had to wear rubber gloves to get it off!! talk 'bout gross!!!

here she is afterwards, tryin' to be real cute so nobody would notice how bad she smelled.....stupid poopy sister.........see if i ever sit in that basket again......

oh, a nice, sunny day!

it's been so dreary here! but today the sun was out and
my Mom and i went out in the back yard! she put out
seeds and fresh water for the birds and squirrels and i
patrolled. here i'm doin' very important territory
markin' on the bushes around the perimeter. (you can see
my tail up in the air, wigglin'!!)

then i went onto the back porch and toasted on
my wicker chair in the sun. when it's a sunny day,
even tho' the porch isn't heated, it's real comfy.

while i snoozed on the porch, my Mom was doin' stuff in
the kitchen, enjoyin' the sun comin' in the window (that's
my cat grass soakin' up some sun too!) all in all, a very
pleasant day.

P.S. i still don't have a pet. anybody out there know anythin' 'bout ferrets?? i saw one on tv and he looked really cute! since i've never heard of a "dust ferret" my Mom can't get stupid 'bout that and i might ask her 'bout one.

it's not funny, Mom!

i've been talkin' to my Mom for a while now 'bout me gettin' a friend. my sister is a bust and i'd like another fur in the house who would be my pal. i told her a thought a bunny would be good and she just shakes her head.

today, when i asked her again, she said "Edsel, run upstairs and look under the bed. i think you'll find a surprise!" all excited, i ran up and looked. all i saw was a couple of shoes and my quilt that i lay on when the doorbell rings. i went back down and told my Mom that there wasn't anything there! she said to look i did, and nothin'. so my Mom went up, came back down and said "go look in the living room" so i ran in and this is what she brought down for me:

it's a dust bunny!!!!
and it's not funny Mom, as she laughed and laughed.
i'm goin' to sulk in my basket. maybe i'll go live with Diva Kitty and the fluffies.........

so far 2006 is going swimingly!

my Mom and the Dad stayed home New Year's Eve ('cause they're old fuddyduddies) (they said that, not ME!) my Mom made a salad and a huge stuffed pizza and they got broasted chicken.

my Mom always gives me a piece of chicken of my very own 'cause i like to lick it (don't tell the Dad)

but the bestest part was my Mom fixed me, as Max would call it, real live dead shrimp!! just for me!!!!

then I had to wash and take a nap.
2006 is lookin' to be a good year!
