The snow keeps falling, everyday, in the Big Piney Woods.

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.

A Wonderful Gift

Momma got this picher frame from EdselsMom, Sue, for Christmouse. She got the two black kitties from EnglishSue, several years ago, and the napping kitties from EdselsMom, before she had her eye surgery. She added our pichers in, what she calls, a collage of cats. (The frame is magnetic.) It is hanging in the TV room.

The Best Christmas

The best Christmas ever
When we were very small
Sneaking down the staircase
Tiptoeing down the hall.

They were all snug in their beds
Everyone sound asleep
So we were very quiet
Tried not to make a peep

Looking at the Christmas tree
It's lights were all aglow
The moon in it's fullness
Shone down upon the snow

Two tiny kittens nestled
Under the Christmas tree
One was for my sister
The other one for me

The kittens were sleeping
In a basket side by side
In awe we looked at each other
Our exuberance hard to hide

We pinched our self in disbelief
We dare not wonder why
Running to the window
We saw Santa flying by

Scooping them up in our arms
Christmas was complete
A gift beyond compare
Two kittens, oh so sweet

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.

Please Asplain

Momma tolded me that yesterday was the shortest day of the year. It seemed to me it was just as long as all the ofurr days. I had my nap times, snack times, play times, lovin my Daddy times, biscuit times in Momma's belly, chasing Patches times, watching Mittens hide from me times, watching for Mistrie times, checking out purresents under the tree times, tem-ta-shun treat times, and looking out at the marshmallow world times. Momma putted me in my soliary confinement at 9:00 PM and Daddy let me out at 5:30 AM, just like always. So where does the shortness come in?

Time To Wake Up

I woke her up this morning
A kiss upon her nose
She promptly went back to sleep
Then I attacked her toes

Thanks to all of your for your support in my new venture.........interior design consulatant. Momma took this picher of me to show how grown up I am now, and able to take on the asponsiblity. She says I look like a poster gurl. I have had great suggestions on a name:

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.

Oh, The Weather Outside Is Frightful

We getted more of the white stuff last night, about 6 inches, I think, and it is still snowing. We are apposed to get a big storm tonight, and there is no end in sight. Momma says efurryone knows what it looks like, so no picher is needed. Snow is what we get in the Big Piney Woods, in the winter. She laughs when they say how much ofurr places are getting, cuz that is just normal for the Pacific Northwest.

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 Am TWO Today!!!

Chey and Gemini suggest I become an interior design consulatant, after seeing how well I decorated the cabin. Patches says I am still too much of a baby to start my own consulting furrm. She is always so stuffy and telling me to be more grown up. I am going to ignore her. After all, I turned two today.

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.

There, that looks purrty good.

On Sunny Spots

To sleep
Purrchance to dream
Of mice and birds
Of sunny spots galore.

To wake
Purrchance to watch
A mouse or bird
In a sunny spot outside.

To meditate
Purrchance to think
Of mice and birds
In my sunny spot on the floor.

If you look close, you can see I am sticking my tongue out at Squirt. She is such a pest. This is MY chair, but she doesn't seem to understand the concept of "I was here first." I hope Momma doesn't see what I am doing in this picher; please don't tell her.

A Good Start

Momma looks at me really close and says, "I love you to pieces." I say, "Merow" in my highest squeeky voice. Momma says, "oh, you little love, you little sweetie, you make me so happy." I purr loudly and say, "Merow," again. That is how we start our day, me and my Momma.

Hide And Seek

Under the table
On the chair
High in the cat tree
Oh where, oh where.

Inside the closet
Behind the bed
Looking for Mittens
She finds Precious, instead.

Momma is busy hogging the computer, for days now. She is putting together photo albums. So far, she has bought five of them, and has one of all camping pictures, one on fambly stuff, one on just fowlers. These are now done. Now she is working on one she calls The Big Piney Woods, which will be all photos taken of our home, mountains, sunsets, trees, winter scenes, wildlife, etc . The last one, and the most time consuming, is called Cats, Cats, and More Cats, (it is going to take two albums for just us!!!) She says now her and Daddy can enjoy four years of digital pichers, cuz Daddy doesn't know anything about computers and doesn't want to. It is all so furry tiring.

Rise And Shine!!!

Marching in place
On the bed, today
I am telling you
Get up, and stay.

You can't be tired
You've napped all night
The moon has set
Soon it'll be light.

I stare at you
My eyes so black
I paw at the covers
Get out of the sack!

Monday Mews

Snow, snow, and more snow!!!!

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.
