A new kitty has been showing up the last few days, to eat. It is a tabby with white paws; taking up residence in one of Mistrie's beds under the deck (she is in the woodshed right now.) I followed it's tracks and they led deep into the Piney Woods, and finally ended up on the neighbors property line, so I turned around. The cat is small, very hungry, and very wild. Mistrie would love a companion, but we are hoping it already has a furrever home. I have named it Winter Storm. It looks like it could be one of Precious' kittens. Please send purrs.
In other news, we are getting company, so won't be around for New Years. We want to wish you all a safe and Happy New Years! See you when the company leaves.

The best Christmas ever
They were all snug in their beds
Looking at the Christmas tree
Two tiny kittens nestled
The kittens were sleeping
We pinched our self in disbelief
Scooping them up in our arms
Weather Update: It has been snowing since yesterday. Last night, the limbs on all the trees were hanging heavy, the ornamental crab, especially gorgeous, with an inch of snow on every branch. The power went out in the middle of the night, but was back on several hours later. The wind came up, and the snow is off the trees, now. Time to dig out, until the next round.

Artsy Catsy suggested "Feline Design" or "Precious Interiors"?
Mr. Hendrix suggested "Precious Patterns."
What do you think?
Pee Ess: Hi to my handsome Beezer man!!
Pee Pee Ess: Many of you were worried about me in my speshul nappin place in yesterday's post. I was fine and lay like that a lot, all akimbo. The place is at the top of the stairs. Momma and Daddy have a bedroom that has a railing going around, and it looks down over the main part of the cabin. I love to lay their and watch the goings on. It is MY speshul place.

Momma says efurryone is asking "are you ready for Christmas?" She says efurry year that same question is asked. She says she is ready as she will efurr be. She baked cookies and gave them away, bought and wrapped presents, put up holiday decorations. Now we are hoping for good roads as they are going to the Oldest Gurls house for Christmas. I guess that means we are going to have to nap the day away.

I have to go plan my strategies. For example, a name for my furrm, how much to charge (I think three temptations an hour would be fair,) and someplace to set up my off-us.

Winter has really come to the Big Piney Woods, and all of the Pacific Northwest. Even Seattle got snow! It started Saturday night, and by last night we had well over 2 feet! Then it turned to rain, so has packed, and is so heavy it is almost impossible to shovel. Yesterday, it was incredibly beautiful, a marshmallow world. The ski area is set to open on Wednesday, so hope they don't get the rain we are getting in the valley. The schools are closed and the plow has gone passed our place four times yesterday, and again early this morning. We lost reception on our dish 5 times, and had to clean it off. Luckily, we still have power, although the lights have flickered. The cats are unaffected, except when the snow slides off the roof!! Mistrie is keeping warm in the woodshed.

Well, I slept better, not having Patches around to watch, or having to protect them from monsters. I guess Patches must protect them, as they have all their tosies.

Patches: I sneak Mitten's speshul food, so Momma has to put it up.
Mittens: I sneak Patches' and Precious' food so Momma has to put it up.
Mistrie: I have my own hidden boundaries, and never venture far from the cabin.
Precious: I wait for Momma in the morning to get her coffee, so I can make biscuits in her belly.
Patches: Momma says I am the talker of the group.
Mittens: Momma says I am the purrer of the group.
Mistrie: Momma says I am the mystery of the group. It is a mystery why I won't come in the cabin and a mystery where I came from.
Precious: Momma says I am the clown of the group.
Patches: I attack the stairs with bunny kicks when I am happy.
Mittens: I purr and talk at the same time.
Mistrie: I purr, headbutt and drool for Momma, and for her only!
Precious: I jump straight up in the air when I am surprised.

Alone and sad
Always thinking of you
Alone and sad
and terribly blue.
"But I am here," you say
With a twitch of your tail
"I am here" you say
Not sick and frail.
In memories cherished
Never to die
In memories cherished
Please, don't cry.
I have a place
Deep in your heart
I have that place
We are never apart.

Daisy's Mom, Sue, helped her to the bridge today. Daisy's Mom and I have been good internet email friends for years. Sue lives in Loughton, which is outside of London, England. Daisy came to live with her Mom Sue and Dad Stephen, 4 1/2 years ago, at the age of (about) eleven. She was an honorary Calico Girl and teleported over to our kitty napathon in January, 2006. She had a heart of gold, was timid and shy and always such a good girl, touching everyone who knew her.
She reminded me so much of my Mittens. While I never met her, I will really miss her as I feel I knew her, through Sue's many emails.

The wind in the trees has a special bite
Snow covers the slopes in the mountains high
As the geese and their young begin to fly.
November transitions from warm to cold
As winter begins to take a hold
Bare trees shudder and go to sleep
Awaiting the snow so white and deep.
Soon December will enter in
And winter will say "I win, I win"
Thus, for a time, the world stands still
Bundled up warm, we wait, until
Springtime again shows her face of green
A more lovely site is never seen
As we watch life starting up anew
Something we always look forward to.

1. We don't smell you in inappropriate places.
2. We don't bark, at everything, all the time.
3. We don't have to be walked, but use our litterboxes.
4. We purr.
5. We eat slowly, and with manners.
6. All we need is a window to keep us entertained for hours.
7. We smell good, and never need a bath.
8. We don't jump up on you.
9. We treat company with respect.
10.We don't get into the garbage, strewing it all ofurr.
11. You can leave us for a few days, and we are fine.
12.We are independent, not slobbery, but we love you, just the same.
13.We are a mystery, and all furless ones like a good mystery.
Composed by Patches, with help from Mittens, Precious and Mistrie.
