My Best Friends

Here they are, two of my bestest furriends in the house.  Of course, don't tell Lion or Floppy Ducky or Floppy Mousie or Pink Mousie.  Don't mention it to my chicken leg or donut either.  Um, might not mention it to my tomato or my bouncy balls that I bat.  Well, avoid the topic with my two trackball toys.  Thanks for your discretion.

Babies and Bridge

The Gates to the Rainbow Bridge should be closed now.   Please close, Gates.  They have been open too long and our babies are leaving us one by one.  Angel,  Ms Stella O'Houligan, Honey P. Sunshine, Ande, and Mommy and I just can't stand it.

Mommy said that she as well as the rest of the parents know all too well the exquisite pain of losing one of us.  We are so loved and we freely give our trust and love back to our family.  Our parents go to the ends of all they know and freely spend their green papers to help us, but sometimes we get so tired that no matter how we long to lie one more time next to our parents sleeping bodies at matter how many times we want to be stroked and petted as we nestle in our beddie or on the bed...sometimes the tiredness just overcomes us and we are unable to come to you any longer.

  We know how deeply loved we are.  We love you just as much and  we show it in so many ways.  Nestling in close whenever we can shows it...offering our trusting small bodies to your kisses and hands.  Listening to you talking to us, your listening to our very low sweet speech to you when we come in to find where you are...speaking all the way asking where are you Mommy?  And our tail held so high...the tip laid over slightly and our brilliantly gleaming crystal clear eyes when we see your face and smile.

Let the Gate close a while please.  Our hearts need a rest.

Still Crazy After All These Years

Well, I played the xylophone again night before last.  Mom now has to move the little table waaaaay down toward the middle of the bed so I can't stand on it and play music for her.  Some gratitude.

Her IS better now and quit that infernal coughing so I stay nailed against her all night again in gratitude for no more earthquakes.

She made a cake for favorite brother's birthday tomorrow the 29th.   Chocolate with thick THICK chocolate icing.  Home made stuffs.  Other favorite brother will be here too as will his wife and the baby.  We go out  to supper and come home and lay all our faces down into the cake!  NOMMY!

Other than that, we not doing anything much.  Brother will stay overnight.

Mom hopes I get over the urge to play my favorite instrument so that she may put the table back.  I love to go from window to window following the progress of strange kitties in my yard.  Mom refuses to raise that mini blind.  She said enough is enough.

I'm still liking my Greenies Hairball Treats!  I think they are helping.  Dental treats too hard.  I don't like them.


May 26, 2015


I came flying into bed after lights out and I was racing around like a mad cat!  Mom turned on the light and asked what was the matter.  My pupils were so big she couldn't see the irises.  I leapt up and down and off and onto the bed.  And mom thought I had brought a live mousie.  But here is the culprit.  She found him this morning.  I was playing with him!

Happy Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day Kitties and Woofies!!

Each Memorial Day is special. It is meant to honor our fallen heroes in wars present and past as well as those heroes of today who fight to keep our Country, us, and freedom safe.  We honor them with a  real gratitude and appreciation always, not just today.

Sunday Betters

First of all, looky what ANN made for me!  A Sumer Header!  I have been so in love with the Spring one (as you could see) I never wanted to change it.  But look how bewteefuls this is!  Finally I can change and still feel bewteefuls. Fanky too Ann. We are so gratefuls!

Mommy asked permission to have me  say she feels better today though she still has the sickies.  She has a cough syrup that quietens the incessant coughing so that she can lie down and sleep instead of sitting up AND get to sleep most of the night.  Just one time of waking to cough her innards out for awhile but then, back to sleep.

She said she was finally after the fourth time diagnosed with bronchitis.  He doctor was on vacation and she had gone in on the weekend where there are excellent people there, but not MD's.  Anyway he doctor prescribed a Zpac.  It is helping but the coughing stayed the same till day before yesterday, she got a cough syrup that really knocks out the cough.  All that stuff is still there in the chest area so she is almost glad to have to cough some.  Just not all the time, 7/24.

Mom, you've had the floor plenty.  Now me.

I have stayed with her and nursed her through all of this and the thanks I have gotten is her croaking loudly "STOP IT"! when I played the xylophone on the bedroom mini blinds.  Hey.  I'm just trying to play soothing music to lull you to sound sleep.  Sheesh, mom!!! Be appreciative, will ya?

Let me herd her into the bedroom to get dressed.  This pink jammie thing is getting on my nerves.

And she said sincere thank you's to ALL of you who suggested things for her.  I always passed them on and she did try most if not all of the suggestions.  The caring and suggestions brightened her mood when she was so down.  Fanks you on behalf of my mommy and me as well.  Loves you.

The picture below is one she stole from Face Book.  No one here is having a birthday till May 29 when it's favorite brother's birthday but mommy and I thought that was so FUNNY!

Mommy saw this on FaceBook and thought it was hilarious!

Color me sads

Mom can't quit coughing at all. All night long and from afternoon to bedtime and onward through all night she continues...the worst ever. The little prescriptive cough suppressant med patients call pearls is not working.  Commonly called pearls, just so you know.  Useless as TicTacs or Fancy Feast.

Last night though it was her worst ever in these two weeks hacking. I laid up close to her back even during the storm she was creating I stayed.  When she gave up in the wee hours and sat up in bed, covering up with a sheet, I left her a bit and come back and laid by her leg, keeping her warm and safe during the coughing storm.  When she got up at 6, she was touched deeply to see I had not only brought Donkey-- I had tried my best to get him into the bed with us.  He fell from my mouth right where my springing up place is at the bed corner. I laid close all night despite all the awful sounds and movement.  I won't leave her.  I have to help her if I can.

Mom so wishes she knew how to stop that coughing.  Her throat, sides, ribs, and lower abdomen hurt as well as her back and head from constant coughing.

Sorry to make a Nursing report.  They get boring.  WE had to ask Admiral to appear from the other side of the veil and teach me how to nurse mom as I don't even have a cap to show my authority.

Happy to help Mommy for Sisfur this time

He is Mom's and me, Katie's,  bestest furriend ever ever.

Mom and Me

Mommy is really really a pain in the patootie to sleep with these days and I wish I could help her.  If I could, my life would return to normal.

She coughed horribly most of the night again so she's headed back in to the office to see the Dr. in less than an hour.  Maybe something can be done this time.  Third time is the charm, right?

Somebuddy Has a Sickie

That be mommy.  Hers has coughed so hard and much she lost her voice and scared me with all the loud loud noise.  I can't sleep with her now because she rocks the bed so badly.  Admiral said she would be right at home and I shouldn't be a skeert kitty.  She said she herself has sailed many a rough seas, and the one I am being tossed about on ain't nothin'!

Mommy was prescribed a cough suppressant.  Drug store hurry up!  And a change in BP med is coming as well as what I was taking probably made mom cough so horribly.  Stop it mommy!


May 17, 2015


Kitties! I am tired of being bounced off and flung away from the bed by the horrible coughing all night long.  And all day she annoys me with the hacking.  Who can sleep?  Not her..but more impawtently, not ME!  She sat up for three hours trying to sleep and that didn't work.  So she laid down and that didn't work either.  It was a fitful ocean we had sailed upon for the night and I sure will be glad when she cuts that coughing OUT! Eat some hairball treats, will ya Mom?  Honey which was suggested yesterday, a spoonful,  helped some so she asked permission to tell the woofie and Flynn who suggested honey that it worked moderately well. Sigh.  The stuffs I have to go through.

I'll be here till further notice!  And I may even go on into my girl cave that is the opening right below me that you can see.

Sweet Ande of Marg's Animals, friend to all who lived or came to her home has passed away.  I know her Mom Marg is broken hearted.  Please go by and leave her some love and comfort.  Ande has been a welcoming loving friend to all-- furry or human.

Mom doesn't feel too well right now so she won't be conquering any Countries or even the house for awhile.  A dry cough, sinus drainage and incessant coughing at that.  She'll try Cupcake's idea about honey. She doesn't know how much vinegar so she will skip that.

Have a good Caturday friends.  XOX

Straw Hat Day

Happy Straw Hat Day efurrybuddy!

Boy, Mom made it a rough ride last night when we went to bed  She has a sinus thingy going on and stuffs drips a lot down her throat and makes her cough and cough day and night.  It shook me as I laid, or tried to, next to her.  Like being on a trampoline I told her as I gave up and left.

Due to blood pressure med, she is concerned about OTC preparations interacting with it as once happened so she's just going along till sinus's quit.  I may have to sleep elsewhere.  She has no consideration for me at all.

See?  I even help her fold the hard-to-do- for-mom's who don't know how, bottom sheets.  After three solid hours, I permitted her to finish.

Tuxie Tuesday

Good Meowning Kitties!

Beautiful Cubby has gone over the Rainbow Bridge.  Please go see his parents and leave a message of love.  Their hearts are broken.

I loved all my furriends coming over and bringing stuffs while I lay abandoned and starving here at home.  No credit card either to order stuffs and it was a scary time.  Who knows what evil lurked in the hearts of ...oh, that's something else...never mind.  The Shadow Knows, however.

I was so glad to see Mom when she finally got home that mom felt badly.  I couldn't stop rubbing on her and making sure she was there.  When we went to bed...way early because she said she didm;t sleep well while gone (probably because I wasn't there) (it was a too firm mattress but *I* know it's because I wasn't there!)  I cried out pitifully when bringing in Donkey because I wasn't sure if she was still with me.  I brought Floppy Mousie next and cried some more. Mom spoke to me both times saying she was there. Then I jumped into bed and sniffed and sniffed her head, face and hair.  Finally I was quiet and laid down with her.  I had my back feets touching her for a long time. I hate when she leaves and it has been a year since the last time.  Mom said if she's able and everyone is well here, she would like to do that more often and that I need the small separations from her.  HA!

The Claw Cutter came last night and stole my claw tips.  Then they talked for 2 HOURS!  Sheesh.  She is a tech where my new Dr. is, and Mom and she get along great.  She's 26 years old and Mom always enjoys younger ladies as friends as they have a different outlook that is refreshing for her to hear and trade stories with.  Mom is a squillion and it's hard to find squillion year old ladies! So she makes friends with the babies out there!  Heeeee.

Mom said I'll be alone a little while tonight as the other favorite son will be here with his wife and child to celebrate Mother's Day with her!  Mom was gone on the day so now they will have ther time. First they'll go out for Fancy Feest and then come back here and admire me.  But I know Mom will be admiring their baby! I'll go off and sulk!

Look at what Mommy bought in Charlotte.  A Japanese Good Luck Kitty! Maneki Neko.

I'm Desperate...Bring Suffs!

Kitties! I see mom took my credit card from First Feline Bank and so I can't order stuffs for us.  Come over quickly, I am lonely.  Bring foods. Trout Towne Tabbies are loading up the back of their vehicle I know.  They told me.  Anyone else?  I have lots of toys and now there are 2 Treadmills in the bathroom for us. First quality paper too! Nothing too good for my friends, ya know.

Doors are standing open, and my tunnel is at your disposal.  Come on in. I'll leave the lights on.

Sad Friday. Mom's Abandoning Me

A loving Goodbye

A loving goodbye to Nerissa.  I will miss you dear boy, till we meet again.   Seville, I know that news was so hard for you to write to us.  If you kitties and woofies and piggies haven't been there to  say goodbye, please drop over to comfort the rest of the family who miss him so.

Mommy said she is abandoning me tomorrow morning.  I am NOT going to like that ONE bit.  I am trying to think about what to do in retaliation while she's gone.  Thinking....

Review of Mommy
Date  6 May 2015
Reviewed by Kathryn Isabella, Queen of Tennessee

Quantity of Output:  Has your purrson posted to your blog daily to give you maximum exposure worldwide and make you famous?

I rate her as TWO Paws.  She has been slacking off these past months! 

Quality of Output:  Are you, as snoopervisor, satisfied with your purrson’s choice of photos, words, creativity, imagination, truth, fun and general interest in your postings?

Four Paws here.  She does her very best.

Client Pawticipation:  Does your purrson provide sufficient ways for your fans to contact you and for you to contact them?

Four Paws here as well.  Can’t meow too much about it. 

Pawticipation (Part II):  Does your purrson allow you to take part in fun blog-world special events, pawties, contests, and more?

Two Paws.  If it’s something she is technically able to do, she always will.  She’s useless most times. She tries. 

Client Satisfaction:  Are your friends purringly contented with what they see and read on your blog?

Not too sure.  Two Paws? 

Overall rating and comments and suggestions for improvement (in your own words):

I think Mommy shows her loves for me and does her very very best.  Despite the lower rating there in a few categories, I have to give her credit for the most impawtent fing.  Love for me.   But she SURE needs vast improvement in the first category…output.  Maybe I can dictate my posts?  Does it have a meow translator? 

(  )  High Four paws
(  )  Medium Two paws

Tuxie Toosday Question!! And Happy Cinco de Mayo

Wanna meow you a question.  What happens on MY comment area?  Do you get the usual annoyance with " prove you're not a robot" to check, or do you get the food arrangements?  The fuzzy numbers in a box to type out?  I just changed it again TRYING to find the least obnoxious.

Can someone tell me where to find "Love and Hisses"?  Celestial Cats said there is an adoptable kittie there with a half 'stache like MINE and mommy wants to see.

Boy, I had a H_U_G_E hairball yesterday morning that I presented right after some of my breakfast!  That thing was as long as mommy's forefinger!  I take Greenies Hairball treats.  I want the full 12 they recommend but I will hork them up if I have that many and the green chlorophyll is not an easy stain to get out of the carpet mom said.  No matter how fast she runs to clean it up.  So I get about 6.

Mommy is gonna abandon me this Friday for the weekend!  I have my favorite cat sitter though.  She will spend Mother's Day weekend with her middle son over the mountains! Been since last Mother's Day that she got to go.

I hope you have a wonderful day full of scratches, treats and tummy rubbins.

Monday Meowning Floof

Here I am...with Donkey and my nip nanner.  Someone (whose initials are CK)  spoke of the 'nanners placement and I told them to reconsider their thought!  Heeeee.

Now I will tell you Kitties up front that what you see here is FLOOF!  I am NOT fat!  Mommy!  Stop laughing!  I offer my upturned tummy to you  all the time and you have felt that it is taut and fine!  That was an unfortunate angle!  Like you yesterday taking a picture of yourself in the reflection of the full glass storm door with that shirt on acting as a light jacket!  You looked like a BLOCK on top! Why don't you show THAT!??  Huh?  That was clothing floof!  Same thing!  Wait till I figure how to grade your performance!  That laughter will absolutely be a factor!

Good Meowning Kitties!

Favorite brother is here just for last night.  He is headed back to his place this meowing.  I hate to see him go but then, if he does I get to see him come back again.  My greetings are always joyful when he comes to see me.

We have had about four days and nights with no RAIN!! Imagine.  Here is this very morning when mom went onto the deck about 45 minutes ago to prove to herself that it wasn't raining!!!

And here are me and Boomie.  We're trying out for PlayCat magazine.  He'll be in the Girlcat edition. Me, not so much.  Boycats R Us.
