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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

Oh, Patches please
And tosie box
Toy mice and balls
Pee Ess: Beezie is practicing the Hokey-Pokey. There is a picher on his blog. He is looking so good, and he is so handsome!

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

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.

1. Wrapping packages that you mail
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?

Everyone is getting their aristocratic names done. So, here are ours. As you can see, Precious, aka Squirt got two! Momma likes the purple part in her name, very fitting, she says. (Momma loves purple.) So, now, we would like the respect deserving of our names. Thank you very much.
Patches..... Countess Patches the Insouciant of Durdle Door
Mittens..... Her Grace Lady Mittens the Funereal of Chalmondley St Peasoup
Mistrie...... Lady Madame Mistrie the Imaginary of Piddletrenthide on the Carpet
Precious.... Duchess Precious the Subservient of Featherstonehaugh St Fanshaw
Squirt....... Entirely Miss Reverend Lady Squirt the Purple of Hopton Goosnargh
You can get your own fancy dancy name by going to Your Peculiar Aristocratic Title.

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.
