Hello Meezers!


Hello, my name is Patches, what is your name?
Momma is this Bonnie Big Eyes, or Molly Mew?

I think I will just stay in here for a while.
There are three, no four big cats around this place!!

Note from Momma: I have them confined to the bathroom and let them out from time to time. One is very nosey, the other very timid. When Precious met one, she hissed, the first time I have ever heard her do that. The little Meezer growled and growled. I can't tell them apart.

March Is Flying


Momma said March is flying by, so I am watching for it. She didn't say if it had wings, but I am assuming, because it can fly, it does.

Do Not Assurb

Patches went upstairs, while I stayed under the dining room table, meowing and meowing for her. She wouldn't answer me at all, so I decided to go up and see what she was doing; well, she was sleeping, so, here I am, upstairs, waiting for her to wake up. See what a good girl I am not to assurb her? Momma says go ahead and assurb her because she assurbs Momma and Daddy at 3:00 AM Pacific Daylight Savings Time ina morning.

Thinking


Mittens: (thinking) What is Squirt doing up here?
Patches: (thinking) I suppose she is going to attack me as my back is turned.
Precious: (thinking) I think I will attack Patches because her back is turned.
Momma: (thinking) I never thought I would get them all in the same picture.

Fairy Viewing

What: Fairy Viewing
Where: Big Piney Woods by stump in picher
When: Today, Friday Sept. 23
What time: Dawn to dusk

Many of you made comments about the fairies in the Big Piney Woods, so we decided to invite one and all to come over for a fairy viewing. For those of you new to fairies, remember to sit furry still, (easy for us cats) don't even move a whisker; they are furry shy at first. You can tell they are around by seeing a shadow, hear an unexplained noise, or feel a breeze on your face when the air is still, smell the scent of a flower when you aren't in a garden, or feel a presence.

We picked this stump because we have seen fairies in it afore. If you see one, please leave a comment and let efurrycat know what you saw.

Fairies In The Forest



Deep in the Big Piney Woods is a fairy house. Mistrie loves to play with them and they love and protect her. Anyone can get fairies to stay, if they have a place for them to live. Ours is gnarly roots from a tree that toppled over eons ago, left to weather and grow moss and lichen.

Some things you need to get a fairy house started:

A stump, or piece of driftwood with places they can hide.
Mushrooms or toadstools, for tables and chairs.
Dried leaves, for flooring and to make their beds.
A quiet place, they hate noise, although they love wind chimes.
Ferns are nice; they like to hide under their shade, but not necessary.
They love flowers, especially pansies.
A gazing ball is nice, but not necessary.
You will know when they are inhabiting their house as there will be lots of butterflies around.

A Day Late


Spring arrived today
The sun is high above
Days are longer still
We hear the mourning dove

Spring arrived today
Soon the geese will nest
We hear the robin's song
As the sun sets in the west

Spring arrived today
Momma says it's so
The sun is warm upon the soil
As green things start to grow

A week after my rescue; (I was a tiny girl.)

More Trouble



I guess I killed the lamp. Momma said the bulb is "shot." I only pushed it a little with my pawsie, then it lost it's balance and fell. Momma came tearing up the stairs and called me ~Squirtwhathaveyoudonenow~. She didn't put me in time-out, I guess she gave up on that.


I am going to look furry remorseful.
~~~~~~~~~~
OK.....I think it is time to attack the roni!!!!

Probably Not



If your Momma is standing with her back to you, it probably isn't (no, I can almost guarantee it isn't) a good idea to use her leg as a scratching post. Now I am in time-out.


My new name is:

Grooming The Grasses


I am watching and waiting for Momma and Daddy to come inside. They took big combs and brushes today; they are grooming the grasses. They are setting the piles of stuff they pick up on fire!!! They come in smelling like smoke and sweat, so they jump into the big rain box. They say, when they come out, they feel like new people. I kinda like the old people.

It got so warm and then it rained, taking all that white stuff, turning it into water. We see green!!!!

Monday Mews



Here are some odds and ends, bits and pieces, of news from the Big Piney Woods:

Mittens is feeling fine. She thanks efurrycat for their well wishes.
The snow is melting fast, spring has sprung and now the sky is dripping a lot.
Momma figured out what was wrong with the Daylight, and it is working now. (A box wasn't checked that was apposed to be, in the adjust time zone settings. She is wondering how that happened to get unchecked because it has always worked afore.)
Mistrie came through the winter fat and sassy.
Precious only plays with macaroni and real live mothy miller bugs that come in on the wood.
Precious still give me fits, as she follows me all ofer and chases me, and bats my tail.
I saw a fairy yesterday in Momma's flower bed.

Mistrie Update



The snow on the benches of the back deck has melted off, so Mistrie is having fun running back and forth. The snow is still deep on the back deck, mainly due to the fact it slides off the roof, and piles up there. There is about a foot of snow left on the flat, although bare ground is showing under the trees. It is in the 40's and 50's every day now, and there are hundreds of robins around with the smell of spring in the air. Today it is supposed to hit 60!!!

~Patches Lady~

Pee Ess: Momma downloaded the patchy thing from Microsoft to change our clock on this here computer, but it is still an hour off. Now the question, does she change it, or wait for three weeks and let it change itself?

Short Story



I wrote a short story several years ago, about two kittens and their adventures, and put it on my main website. I am sharing the link, today, with you. There is button that says next page at the bottom, the story is only four pages long. Just follow the link below. It is a story for children, but adults will enjoy it as well.

Patches(knockitoff) Here

The moon was shining brightly in the windows. It looked almost like day, making me want to howl. It happens you know, wanting to howl, even though I am a girl, and a Queen at that. I knew I would get in 33 1/3 kinds of trouble if I made much noise, so I jumped on Mittens, who was cuddled up by Momma. She got all freaky and stupid, growly and hissy. Of course, Momma woke up, and even before she knew what was really going on she yells, really loud, one of her names for me; Patchesknockitoff. Mittens went running like a wild woman under the rocker. Everything, of course, is ALWAYS, automatically MY fault. Well, if you are going to get blamed for something, you may as well do it. I think some famous person said that; if they didn't, they should have.

Mittens Here....

I just wanted to let you all know that I am OK. Please don't worry about me. Momma is so good to me, never gets mad, even when I make bad messes. She pets me, hugs me, and snuggles me, and talks to me, looking deep into my green eyes, that she says are so lovely. She breaks out the paper towels, and Nature's Miracle, and Woolite, or tosses the bedding in the big growling machine. Sometimes I see a tear in her eye, and that makes me sad, because this has been such a wonderful life, and I am hoping to be around a long time..

She says, if need be (I stress so bad at TED's) she will take me back in, right now she is going to wait and see.

To all my dearest furriends.......I want to thank you all for coming yesterday, it was wonderful; so nice to be so loved by so many. I appreciated all the nice treats, and sorry I couldn't eat any, but my diet is furry strict.

Innocence

Yes, I am sweet and yes, Patches likes to pick on me. Here I am, sitting by the A-frame. You can see how I have sharpened my nails on it, like the good girl I am, not like somecat (Precious) who sharpens on the good furniture. Now Momma has put ugly silver strips on the edges, after the orange spray didn't work too well.

I haven't been doing as well as before. Momma thinks it is hairballs (partly, anyway.) Thanks for your concern. Maybe time for a visit to T.E.D.

Our Bad Experience

When I first started, over a year ago, I had a terrible incident when our blog was highlighted on a local newspaper (in a good way.) Some people, who read the tribute to us, made jokes and got real nasty, talking about crazy cat bloggers. I got criticized for the spelling, bad grammar, etc. (I actually went through the whole blog, correcting spelling and grammar. It took me half a day, I was so hurt.) It was so upsetting I couldn't eat or sleep for days. Now I am so glad I didn't let this incident make me delete my blog, it would have been such a loss to me.

I read enough of the voting to see why people are upset, but it isn't catastrophic enough to make you stop blogging. Things got out of hand, yes. I guess that is why, when I do a contest, I specify cat bloggers only, one vote only, etc.

Those of you who quite because of this, we will miss you. The rest of you.......your cats are waiting to post and we are waiting to read what they have been up to!!!

Mu shue Pooh King Cat had a great idea. We need to each put out our paws and hug four other kitties. So we hug:
Edsel
The Meezers
Max and Buddah
Derby


Just my two cents, for what it's worth......
CalicoMom Toni

Pee Ess: Back to regular cat blogging tomorrow!!!

Our Squillions

Our Squillions are named Cloudy and Sunny. We adopted them from Bonnie and Victor last summer. They have been a wonderful addition to The Big Piney Woods Cats. Here they are on the dryer, helping Momma with the clothes.

When they first came, it was warm and nice outside, so Momma put them in a special spot in the flower garden. However, panic ensued when she couldn't find them anywhere. It seems they went visiting Mistrie in Hemlock Haven, and were subsequently grounded. I think they like it inside now, they would be buried under the ton and a half of snow we have.

Sorry this is late, Momma says "always a day late and a dollar short." She meant to help us with this yesterday, but the big storm of the century rolled in.

Is It REALLY March?

I know, many of you have flowers poking up, even blooming. Many of you have green grass and buds on tree, and birds chirping about how glad they are it is spring. Well, we don't care. We don't want to hear about it! Don't tell us it is raining at your place, like that will make us feel better. So, don't bother telling us, cuz we will ignore you.

The white frozen stuff fell from the sky for 24 hours, and when it was done, it was 3 cats high (about 12 inches.) Mistrie is confused and thinks winter has started up all over again. Daddy is outside with the big growling monster tossing the white stuff from one side to another. Momma is going out with a big spoon to clear the walkway. We are going to nap.
