Look At My Hollow Cheeks

This morning it was disgustingly late (4:35 AM) and the Furless Ones had been napping for hours. It was way past feeding time. Momma had her hand hanging off the side of the bed, so I licked it, and she just put it under the covers. Then I walked on her and purred in her ear. I went downstairs and did my famous "get up" yowl! I did this for five minutes, finally I went back upstairs, thinking she was surely dead! She came around at 5:30, and fed us, by this time I was a complete a rack of bones!! I was so emancipated my face was hollow and I felt weak and shaky. I think I have her talked into leaving the food bowl down all the time.

Not much change from last week. Although the temps have been above freezing everyday, the nights are still getting cold, so there isn't a lot of melting, although it did drizzle all night, last night.

Litter Question

CalicoMom Toni here with a question. I recently switched to Tidy Cat Clumping litter and found the dust, when I scoop, is far less than the Special Kitty clumping litter, I was using. However, ALL the cats have stopped covering, and I am wondering if it is the perfume, which is very strong. Please tell me what type of cat litter you use. Thanks in advance.

Momma Is Sick

Momma says she has something called "Cabin Fever." She looks OK, but she keeps looking out the window wishing. I akst her whut she wuz wishing furr. She said, "spring." I think, Momma, that spring cums on the March 21st, that is whut Patches told me. So, seems to me, she has a ways to go. In the meantime, she brough home a whole bunch of lilac colored stuff. She got rugs and towels in the bafroom a purty lilac color, and then she bought me a new bedspread........see....


~Precious Flower~

Newsbreak: About 5:30 AM this morning my husband was looking out the window and saw a bright yellow ball, followed by a tail, falling from the Western sky. It is all over the Spokane, Washington news, and has been seen in a 600 mile radius. In Walla Walla, Washington, southwest of Spokane a man said his whole house lit up. Others are reporting their homes shook. It was seem as far East as Montana, as far North as Canada, and into Oregon. Maybe Chey and Gemini saw it??? Calicomom Toni

Monday's Photo For Contest


Since the last photo was taken, we have had a bit of warm weather. The snow fell off the garage roof, wiping out my cothesline pole and adding to the amount of snow in the pile. We were hoping it would just melt. There isn't much difference in the pile. We received one inch of snow this week. The forecast calls for more upper 30's and rain showers. CalicoMom Toni

Winter Ghost




This is Winter Ghost, the kitty who, luckily, found us afore the snow got so bad. Momma made a nice spot in Hemlock Haven for him/her, where two of the insulated beds are. Momma has to go dig the snow out efurry day from under the deck. She got the idea to feed Winter on a bench of snow. You can see it, from the inside, through the window, real gud. Momma calls it Winter's Homestead. Daddy called and said Winter was out and about in the daytime feeding. Winter has only been seen at night, up until now. The picher was taken through the window, so isn't furry clear. We think the white thing on her side is a ball of snow, it was gone today when she came to feed again. This time she looked at Momma for a furry long time.

~Patches Lady~

Calicomom Toni here with a snow update. We got 8 inches last night and another big storm is coming this afternoon for possibly a foot. By this weekend, it is supposed to warm up to 40, we have our fingers and paws crossed, cuz, enough is enough! All snow records have been broken.
