Momma fixed ham-brr-grrs last night. I had a taste, and here is what I found:

Ham: It doesn't taste anything like ham.
Brrr: It was hot, not cold.
Grr: It didn't make a sound, Mittens is the only one who growls in this house.

Another thing, about Lazy Susan, who I still haven't found (although William and The Meezers said she was in the cupboard.) Momma says she spins around, while holding things. She must get powerful dizzy. (I really think Momma is awful confused.) She still hasn't been hauled off to jail, from removing the pillow tags, but I am keeping a watch, in the window.

Oh, No!!!

I am very worried. Momma committed a terrible crime. She took the tags off some pillows and it says, "Do not remove, under penalty of law." Now she is going to jail and we are going to be without a Momma.

Looking For Susan

Miles Meezer mentioned lazy Susan in his post on Thursday Thirteen. Momma says we have a lazy Susan, too. I have looked and looked, but can't find anyone by the name of Susan napping anywhere. Maybe she needs bitamins. Maybe she needs mo-tiv-ation. Maybe I should find her and tackle her leg. Hey, Susan, come on out and play!!!

Chicken Little

Hi, funny little critter. Momma says you are a chicken, and came from Lost Wages, Nevada. You have sand in your butt. Momma says that helps you to sit up, without tipping over. Wanna play?

A Greary Day

It is a greary day here (gray and dreary.) I have been spending time getting huggles from Momma, chasing Patches, playing under the table with my many toys, munching, and climbing the tree. What do you do on greary days?

Tummies and Tosies

It's Tuesday and here is my contribution; with both a tummy and tosey pose.

Now, let me sleep, please!!!

Just Wondering

I am resting here, wondering why Patches gets upset when I swat her tail. She leaves it in plain site and moves it, ever so slow. What is a girlcat to do? I only tried to bite it one time!

The Snow Zone

We went from a "know zone" (see post below) to a "snow zone." Momma says it looks like a foot of new snow. It snowed for 18 naps!! Her and Daddy are using big spoons to shovel it away from the windows, as they are all covered up. It is kind of neat, almost like a cave in the cabin. Daddy did some groaning this morning when he saw it. The snow all came zooming off the roof, that is what is covering up our windows, sending the three of us into hiding.

There was a man visiting, all day yesterday, putting a new dish on the house, to replace the old dish. Why would anyone put a dish on their house? It should be on the floor, filled with Stinky Goodness. Momma says it is a High Definitition dish, so maybe that means you can see the food in it better.It is full of snow right now!!

The Know Zone

There are lots of spots in the cabin declared "know zones." These "know zones" are off limits to me; for example, the tables and kitchen counters. Also, included in the "know zone" is putting my claws into the furniture, although I do it all the time, with much zest. Daddy said something about me "ruining" all the furniture. He didn't exactly say it was a "know zone," so I think I am doing a good thing, as Momma says, "Honey Squirt, we must not do that," while she takes my paws down, picks me up, and huggles me. She gives great huggles and I doubt, if I was in a "know zone," she would huggle on me, know what I mean?

Cold Spell

On these very cold days, in A State Of Winter, I snuggle up to the hot fire box in the TV room and snooze the day away.

Pee Ess: Come on over and snuggle with me!

Momma decided, because I have grown so much, to change the picture of me in the sidebar. Here is the old picture and the new one.

Computer Down

UPDATE: It is fixed already! I took it in, and they weren't busy, in fact, the shop wasn't even open because of the holiday, but they took it, anyway. Put in a new power supply and within half an hour I walked out, computer all fixed! They even cleaned out all the cat hair. Oh, and gave me a warning to update my security patches. :)

My computer is down. I went to start it up, pushing the button; nothing. I am guessing it is the power supply, and will be taking it in for repairs today. I am using my old laptop to post this. However, it doesn't have any of the critical windows updates or a virus program, as it is used to balance my checking account and emergencies like this one. Hope it gets fixed quickly, as I will miss all of you.

Suzie And Me

I tried and tried to get Patches to play with me. Then, I tried to get her to snuggle with me. She ran upstairs, so I decided to snuggle with Suzie, the calico that EdselsMom gave our Momma, after her "I" surgery. I can put the bite on Suzie, tussle with her, and bop her and she is so nice and she never hits back.

Patches thinks she has hidden from me.

I have to figure out how to get under her hidey spot. I claim it as mine now.

Loafing Around

Momma thinks it's cute when I lay like this, with my paws tucked neatly under me. She says it looks like it would hurt the way I bend my arms. Now, Momma.....doesn't your elbow bend? Does it hurt? Same principle, only you would look ever so funny if you tried to loaf like us cats do. You Furless Ones are all arms and legs, way too long. Too bad, it must be hard to get comfy.

Pee Ess: The picture of the snow is kind of deceiving, as the snow falls off the roof, onto the deck. We actually have about two feet on the ground.

A State Of Winter

No, this is not Collar-rad-hoe.. This is a picture Momma took out the back door. As you can see, we can't use that door anymore. Yes, I think we have as much snow as they do. It snowed again yesterday, another 8 inches! Our ski area broke an all time record in December. Yes, this IS a State of Winter.

I Won!!

I am so furry excited. All of us entered the contest that William put on. (How much litter they use in a year.) I guessed 668 lbs and the right answer was 700 lbs!

Momma has sponsored a kitty at Best Friends for many years, so I would like the prize money to go to Safe Haven For Cats. This wonderful lady rescues motherless kittens and nurses them to health and finds wonderful furrever homes for them. You can read about her HERE. Jeri has been saving kittens since 1998. Click on the link over to the left that says Rescued Kittens.

Thank you so much for this wonderful contest, William!

New Collar

With all the talk, on different blogs, about collars, Momma went out and got me a pink one, with diamonds and a bell. (You can hardly see it cuz of my furs, haha) The bell rings, so now she hears me, wherever I go.

However, I got it off three times. I didn't pull it over my head, either, I unhooked it. Neener, neener. Daddy told Momma she may as well give up. Yeah!!!!

After The Lesson

It's time for a nap. Patches, I think, gave up trying to teach Precious left/right. (See post below.) She looks pretty tired.(Precious is growing so fast, she has passed Patches up in size. Of course, a lot of that may be fur.)

Miles had problems learning his left from his right paw, and Precious is having trouble, too. Patches is showing her which paw is her left.

Thursday, January 04, 2007


We are all scairt and hiding. Something crazy is going on. All the furniture is moving around and the big sucking monster is out on the prowl. "Junk," as Momma calls it, is coming out of closets and being put into black plastic bags. There is a big box going to the kitty shelter thrift store. There is a huge new picher box and all sorts of wires, running hither and yon. Momma said to Daddy, "remember when you just plugged the cord into the outlet and turned the knob to seven?" (They only got one channel, back in the dark ages.) Now, they have hundreds of channels and they are always saying, "there is nothing on."

The kittens that the Big Lady Daughter adopted from our shelter, arrived safe and sound in Winnemucca, Nevada. They have been named Nitro (black) and Turbo (calico.) The Big Lady Daughter said she is "baby proofing" her house.

Tummy Tuesday

Daddy says my tummy furs look like shag carpet. Do you remember shag carpet? Is this a good or bad thing? Daddy also calls me "Squirt," never by my real name. Now Momma started calling me Squirty Squirt Squirt.

Happy New Year!!

It is especially happy for two kittens from the shelter, here. Before the Big Lady Daughter left, her and Momma went to the shelter yesterday, and she picked out two girl kitties to take home to Winnemucca, Nevada. (Sadly, there is no kitty shelter there.) Of course, Momma got attached and hated to see them leave, but she said they couldn't have gotten a better furrever home.

Big Lady Daughter has always had black and tuxedo kitties, so was looking for another color with short hair, however when this little black long-haired darling climbed on her leg and snuggled and purred into her neck, she took her immediately. Her shelter name is Queen, but that will change. They said she was 3 months, but Momma thinks she is younger.

Big Lady Daughter then looked at the rest of the kittens. There was a litter of six (one had been adopted) of all various colors. After much debating she chose the dilute calico. She is a purr machine also, and Momma says quite the climber and runner. Her shelter name is Petunia, and that, also, will change. They said she was 3 months old also, but much larger than Queen.

The pictures are a bit blurry because these kittens are "on the go." Last night, they discovered toilet paper and how to knock things off the window sill!
