Mistrie Comes In!!!!!

Oh, it was the most citing night of all. Momma opened the door to feed Mistrie. Patches and I were sitting there, hoping for a handout. Mistrie saw us and came to the door; Momma opened it, and she came in! Yes, all the way! She has the loudest motor I have efur heard and she purred and purred while both Patches and I took turns nose touching, kissing, getting the smells of the Big Piney Woods from her fur. Momma didn't let her stay long, something about not wanting to start a cat fight. (She was talking about Patches.) It was a joyous thing!

Precious; On Ears

Have you thought about what strange ears the furless ones have. They aren't pointed (unless they are in a star trek movie) and when Daddy starts getting nice hairs in there, he pulls them out with the twe-sirs. Momma has holes in her ears with silver hoops in them that serve no purpose, except get caught on things. Their ears don't swivel at all, and I never see them washing behind them. I don't think they hear very well out of them, either, they are always saying "huh?" They can't flatten them when they get mad, they are just stuck in place. Momma puts hunks of dough in her's cuz she says our foolishness keeps her awake when she is taking her nighttime nap, but I think it is Daddy's night noise.

Vishus Moose


This moose is not only vishus she has a voracious appetite. She was eating on Momma's yew tree and Daddy had to go out and throw a cold, round ball of white stuff at her and then she just sauntered off like she owns the place. )I am sitting on the end of the couch, but you can't see me cuz the picher is too dark.)

Precious' & Mistrie's Bed


Yes, I used the bed too, when I first arrived, all skinny and starving. I am not sure I would fit in it, anymore. I was used to sleeping on the ground, so couldn't get the hang of it.

Here is Mistrie in MY roundbed, last summer.

Patches' Bed

First it was mine
From what I remember
It was bought for me
In 1999, September
(it was Oct., but that didn't rhyme)


I was new to the woods
And only two years old
The first of the cats
Or, so I was told


Now everycat has had a chance
To use it, you see
Mittens, Mistrie and Precious
Will all agree


It is comfy and soft
The right size and height
And just cuz I wouldn't use it
Doesn't give them the right


To take it from me
To enter my space
For it is mine
And that is my case

Mittens' Bed


This is my bed
Soft and round
It's great for naps
Is what I've found

Or a long winter sleep
In this greary season
And hiding from Precious
Is another reason

I curl up here
Away from it all
In my closet haven
Until nature calls

Sad Day For WMD


Momma lit a candle last night to help Eddie, William's bro, on his way to the Bridge. We all stared into the flame, and wished him well, on his journey. We know it helped because the flame flickered, as we watched it. Then we bowed our heads. It is a sad time. We send special purrs to his Momma.

Looking For Green


Momma told me spring is coming. She knows this because the geese are back! I am looking for ANYTHING green that might be poking up, but all I see is white and brown. The only green I see is the pine trees, and they are always green! Is it spring and green at your house?

Another Kitten Update

Amember when I told you about Big Lady Daughter and her little wafer, Hannah, adopting two kittens from our local shelter and taking them to their home in Winnemucca, Nevada? (You can see that post by going HERE.)

The kittens are thriving and growing in their new furrever home. Big Lady Daughter sent us some pichers to share.

Getting To Know You

Beezie came and bisited me in the Big Piney Woods, yesterday. We had so much fun. We got to know each other better, and we danced the Hokey-Pokey, (he is a fantastic dancer.) I showed him all my toys and he went to the top of the climbing tree. We napped in my favorite chair, too.

He met the rest of the fambily. Patches and Mittens were very nice, and Mistrie showed him her hideouts outside. When we were outside a vishus moose was out on the ice of the pond! We ran fast. Do you know, are vishus moose worse than vishus deer?

Daddy couldn't see Beezer, because Daddy doesn't believe in teleporting and you have to believe! It is kind of like, Daddy can't see the fairies, either; Momma can, though.

Beezie is such a gentlemancat and even kissed my pawsie. He whispered in my furry ear, "you are so purty." He was pretty surprised by all the snow, too. Oh, and he gave me a kitty kiss, afore he left.

Momma says he can come bisit anytime.

An Invitation

Precious: Momma, can I invite Beezie over to The Big Piney Woods to bisit with me?

Momma: Sure, sweetie.

Precious: Momma, will you brush me nice and put my pink ribbon on. I promise not to take it off?

Momma: Sure, sweetie.

Precious: When I am all ready, will you please call up Beezie on the talking machine, Momma?

Momma: I don't know his number, sweetie, but I will email his Momma.

Precious: Thank you, Momma, I am going to go watch out the window. I hope he doesn't get lost. The Big Piney Woods can be a scary place. Do you think he knows how to teleport, Momma? Maybe Daddy can go put some signs out. Do you think he will come, Momma? Do you think he will Hokey-Pokey with me? Oh, what if he doesn't come, Momma?

Momma: Settle down, Precious, I bet he will be here before you know it. Go and look out your window and calm down!


Precious: OK Momma.

Meezer Nieces At Home



Momma realized The Meezer Twins aren't our cousins, they are our nieces. It doesn't matter one bit, they are dolls. Momma and Daddy went bisiting them the other day. Momma tooked pichers, but she says, she doesn't know who is who. Can you see a difference? (They are sleeping in the woofies toy box! Momma made them a nice wicker basket bed she is going to give to them.)


They are both so cute and sweet. Momma says she will update with new pichers, as they grow into big Meezers, like Sammy and Miles.

Come Play With Me


Oh, Patches please
Come play with me
We can run and jump
On the kitty tree.

And tosie box
Maybe pounce and flee
Or hide and seek
You must agree.

Toy mice and balls
Are great fun, too
But the very best thing
Is playing with you.

Practicing


I am getting this left and right thing down. Here I am dancing the Hokey-Pokey, in anticipation of going to a dance with Beezie, maybe.

Put your left paw in
Put your left paw out
Put your left paw in
And you shake it all about
You do the Hokey-Pokey and
You turn yourself around
That's what it's all about.

Sunny Spot


Yes it is
The sun, you know
I can tell
By the yellow glow.

This is a month
Of clouds and cold
So a sunny day's
Worth it's weight in gold.

Find a spot
In a sun-filled room
It helps to chase
Away the gloom.

A nap is good
A nap is great
In a sunny spot
I can hardly wait.

Our New Cousins


The oldest boyson, Leigh, and his wife Paige, adopted these two darling, identical twin meezers, three days ago. They are 6 to 8 weeks old girl cats. Their names are Thelma and Louise. Cuteness personified. We wonder, how are they going to tell them apart? Paige says, Thelma, in front, has bigger eyes.

Duct Tape

Momma says here, in a State of Winter, everything worth fixing can be fixed with duct tape (and WD-40.) The uses, according to her, are endless but here are a few to help you out. In general, you can use it for anything you need to nail, tape, mend, sew, glue or staple.

1. Wrapping packages that you mail
2. Fixing your shoe leathers
3. Holding Christmas lights up (inside and out)
4. Keeping cold from coming in around windows
5. Holds your bumper in place till you get the new one
6. It's better than cellopane tape and comes off easier
7. Mark trees you want cut for firewood
8. Mend screens
9. Mend broken windows
10. Mend fences (not the broken kind you have with your neighbor, though)
11. Put on your dog's tail just for the heck of it and watch it swing

What do you use duct tape for?

On another note, does anyone have any idea how to stop Precious from sharpening her claws on the furniture? Momma says the "know" word and moves her paws off, placing them on the scratching post. She just goes back, and she is using all the furniture. (Maybe that would be another use for duct tape.) Has anyone tried Feliway?

Super Big Bowl Sunday


Momma says today is super bowl Sunday. Does that mean we get a bigger dish of food, a super big sized bowl of food? This bowl looks like the standard size, to me.

Changes

Momma decided, because things have changed here in the cabin in the Big Piney Woods, since she helped us start this blog, it needs to be updated.

The name has changed from The Calico Girls to The Big Piney Woods Cats, to include all four girls; although the url remains the same. (http://thecalicogirls.blogspot.com/) You can change your blogroll, if you like, to The Big Piney Woods Cats.

While we will all be blogging, Mittens is a senior catizen now, and needs more rest. Precious has taken over a lot of her posting duties.

Momma updated each of our profiles in the sidebar, with a short history of how we came to live here. She changed our main profile picture to an outdoor picture of the Big Piney Woods, and the name we will be using to sign comments is Big Piney Woods Cats.


We hope you like the changes. Momma hates change and it took her a long time before she finally went along with the plan. She was going to call it The Big Piney Woods Girls, but then, you never know.......maybe someboy cat will join us, someday. She says, this way, she has covered all the bases.

George Foreman

Gemini figured out who took off the pillow tags, and Miles concurs. It wasn't Momma, it was Lazy Susan, and that is why she is hiding in the cupboard. Whew, what a relief, Momma won't be prosecuted, after all. I found her, and she wasn't spinning, but sitting there holding up all sorts of things, pans, waffle iron, mixer, and George Foreman. I have heard this George is REAL heavy, so, even though Susan is lazy, she must be strong.
