Can I come over to one of your homes to spend the week? I need a nice quite place to lay my head. I would really like to stay home but momma has been hammering and making lots of noise all day long and it is preventing me from getting my beauty rest.
Also, I'm really, really, REALLY tired of having my feet washed everytime I come in from outside. It's not right that I have to suffer a mini-bath simply because there is mud outside. Just what did the humans expect building a house without putting in a suitable yard for Puffy and me first? I've see daddy track mud in the house all the time and not once has momma picked him up and plopped him in the laundry sink to wash the mud off his feet - it's just not right!
Today the sun was once again shining and the snows were melting (thus more mud), and tomorrow the weather report calls for rain so it appears that I will have to endure more feet washing unless one of my pals will let me come visit for a while.
Hugs and kisses,

I have some really great news from our home in New Mexico. Daddy and momma have completed painting, flooring and everything else in momma’s bedroom, sewing room and her walk-in closet. Daddy then moved the wonderful California King Bed frame and mattresses over and set everything up. Puffy, Simba, momma and me are now sleeping in style on the nice big bed. Next, daddy brought the sewing machine and table and put them in the sewing room. Momma spent hours carrying boxes and boxes of stuff from the garage/workshop into “our” bedroom. Today Puffy and I supervised as momma hung some pictures on the walls. We really love our new bedroom as it is much nicer than the one we had in California. There is a nice French door in our bedroom that momma can open to let Puffy and me out when we have to go outside to do our business. Daddy promises that after the house is finished that he is going to fence off the area between the house and the garage/workshop thus creating a courtyard for us so we will not be able to wonder freely in the dark where something might decide to make us their night time snack.
In other news, the deer have been returning from the upper mountains. We have seen lots of deer herds walking about however; the elk are still hiding in the higher area. There are baby cows and sheep in the small farms but the large cow range remains empty right now. There haven’t been any wayward cows visiting our property in quite a while, in fact, the whole herd of wayward cows are no place to be seen. I wonder if they got taken to the market or if they were moved to a different pasture.
Anyhoodle, the humans are making progress on the house and now they are working on finishing daddy’s bedroom so they can get the bed out of the living room and into his bedroom. There are still lots and lots of work that needs to be done but at least Puffy and I can be comfortable in “our” bedroom – BOL.
Hugs and kisses,

The snows have melted and the sun has been out so I thought the humans might like to do something fun with Puffy and me, like take a stroll around the neighborhood. Instead, momma was outside putting tile around the door frame to hide the hole that was created when the French door in her bedroom was installed incorrectly. She chose really pretty Mexican tile and liked it so much she wanted to tile the concrete door stoop also but luckily daddy said that there was still much more work that needed to be done on the inside of the house so he didn’t want her doing the outside door stoop.
The good news is that momma’s bedroom, sewing room and walk in closet will be completed by next week. Daddy says he will bring the big bed and furniture over maybe this coming weekend. Momma is wondering how he is going to manage moving everything since she can’t help him.
Simba Blue, my kitty brother, made another dash out the house in the dark of the night and once again, momma had to hobble after him. He sits by the door wanting to go outside and if we lived in an area where there weren’t bears or mountain lions around he would probably be allowed to explore, but momma doesn’t want him to become something’s dinner.
Momma has decided that Arleenton’s cage will be put in the sewing room so that she is not isolated from the family. It gets too cold here at night so she can’t be put back outside like she was in California, besides, I like playing tag with her because she gives out tasty bunny droppings. There’s nothing like having a pal that gives you treats all the time – BOL, BOL.
The humans will next get daddy’s bedroom done so the Queen Sized bed that we have all been sleeping on in the Living room can be moved back there for him. Building your own home takes a lot of time and work to get everything finished. Sometimes the humans can’t work on it because of the weather and other times it is because they are just tired of doing work – BOL. It will be nice when it is all completed and we can go back to being LAZY!!!!!!
Happy Easter to all.

I need to thank all of my pals for sending me Birthday wishes and rosesettes as my page is loaded with all kinds of wonderful pressies. I feel so loved and special thanks to each one of you.
Momma has gotten behind on doing Puffy and my diary because she got injured. Yup, somehow momma managed to hurt one of her legs and is now in a lot of pain. Sleeping on the big bed with her has not been pleasant because she can’t get comfortable and ends up disturbing our sleep. It was so bad the other night that I finally got off the big bed and went and slept in the doggy bed that is in the kitchen.
Last night when Puffy and I went outside to do our night time business, Simba Blue snuck out of the house and went running around to the backside. Momma didn’t have shoes on and ended up hobbling after him because it was very dark and she didn’t want to leave him outside where something could eat him. When she finally caught him he was all the way to the back side of the house where it is still muddy so needless to say her feet were caked with thick mud, even between her toes. Luckily, she had already put down a wee-wee pad for my use during the night so she was able to use that to make her way to the laundry room so she could rinse her feet off using the laundry tub hose. Daddy laughed and laughed at momma as she was trying to clean off her feet. Puffy and I felt that she got what she deserved because she is ALWAYS washing our feet off in the laundry tub – BOL, BOL.
The humans are still working on the New Mexico house but because momma is injured it is taking even more time. Today momma managed to get down onto the floor so she could paint the lower portions of the door frames but then discovered that she couldn’t get back up without hurting her leg even more. It was pretty entertaining to watch daddy trying to help momma up.
Puffy is doing well on his pain medications and isn’t limping much. He is still licking the tumor on his leg so we know it is bothering him. Simba Blue is remains lost without Bay-Ling and may be depressed because his friend is no longer here. Momma is working on daddy to adopt an older cat from the shelter for him but daddy isn’t receptive to the idea. We’re all trying to give him extra attention but it doesn’t seem to be helping. Twice early this morning he woke momma up and she moved over so he could snuggle next to her but he refused. He is eating and drinking and visiting “Bluebelle” his love pillow so he isn’t in danger, just sad.
Anyhow, I’m going to go play with the balloons that Hobo send me and line up all the emeralds, stars, Easter bunnies, roses, cupcakes, birdies, spring flowers and other goodies I received – THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH!!!!!

I’d like to thank all of my friends who sent Rosettes to my kitty sister Bay-Ling’s page along with the many messages of condolences for her crossing the Rainbow Bridge. Things here at home are not the same with her being gone. She was a very nice kitty and was never mean to Puffy, Arleenton or me, not like Simba Blue our kitty brother. And speaking of Simba Blue, he is totally lost without Bay-Ling. Momma let us all see and sniff Bay-Ling before she was buried but Simba refused to look at her and jumped away from her box and ran out of the room. Momma thinks he just didn’t want to acknowledge that Bay-Ling was dead. Anyhow, now Simba Blue is running through the house calling for Bay-Ling but of course she is not here. Momma asked daddy if he would consider adopting another female kitty that was between 8 or older as they don’t often get adopted but daddy is still in mourning for Bay-Ling and doesn’t even want to consider getting another kitty yet.
Yesterday it was really sunny and nice here in New Mexico, so nice in fact that the humans loaded up the hauling trailer and went to the trash transfer station in Zuni to get rid of some of our garbage (we don’t have trash pick-up where we live). Today, things certainly are much different. We had rain, sleet and now high winds with blowing snow – yup, Mother Nature is once again gracing us with snow. The bad news is that I really, really, REALLY needed to do a number two download so that meant I had to go outside to do it. Let me tell you that it was one of the most difficult potties that I have ever experienced. I thought the wind was going to pick me up and carry me away, plus I couldn’t see a thing because the snow was blowing so hard. Momma kept on telling me to “hurry up” but I refuse to do solid potties close to the house. I struggled with the conditions given and finally selected a place and did my business and went running back into the house to be greeted with a nice warm towel to dry me off.
I want to wish my wonderful boyfriend Hobo a very happy Birthday!!!
Hugs and kisses,

At approximately 11:50AM today, Bay-Ling was sent to the Rainbow Bridge. She was loosing weight and this weekend she started having problems breathing so this morning momma and daddy drove off the mountain and went to Gallup to the local Vet. Blood tests came back normal and nothing could be found wrong except that she was very skinny and was still having problems breathing. Daddy and momma thought she might have had a hair ball or other obstruction inside of her so the nice vet did a chest X-ray. Daddy and momma were beginning to breath easy thinking that whatever the problem was it was fixable. However, life sometimes has a way of throwing a curve ball from time to time as the vet came out into the waiting room with a syringe filled with watered down blood. She said that Bay-Ling's chest cavity was filled with this watered down fluid that she couldn't see her lungs and that was why she couldn't breath. Daddy asked her if it could be drained and the vet said it could but all it would do is give her maybe one more week before it filled up again. We were told that we could take her home but having her die struggling to breath just didn't seem right so she was sent to the Rainbow Bridge with daddy and momma at her side.
We all got to sniff at Bay-Ling before daddy and momma burried her outside under a nice pine tree. I'm going to miss you so much Bay-Ling.

It finally happened, daddy caught a mouse in the laundry room and we didn't even get to sniff it. Daddy left it in the mouse trap and told momma it was dead so she told him to go take it out and dispose of it. What I don't understand is why we have TWO cats in the house and yet the humans had to resort to buying mouse traps to get rid of the mouse. I think if the cats aren't going to catch mice then they should go find another home to live in - don't you agree?
Hugs and kisses,

I’m so confused with the weather here in New Mexico. Last week the snows were almost gone and the mud left behind was drying out nicely, then this week Mother Nature fooled us and dropped another foot of snow on our property. Everything was once again covered with the white stuff. Today, the sky turned blue and the sun was once again shining upon us but that is causing the snows to melt again. All day today Puffy and I laid on the Queen bed in the living room (Yes, we are still sleeping in the living room), and watched ice cycles falls from the rain gutters from the roof along with big clumps of snow. It was freighting as they make a scary noise and thus I was afraid to go outside to do my business. Anyhow, this isn’t the end of the snows because the weather forecast is saying there is another one coming – DANG!!!! How’s a girl supposed to do her business?

The last couple of days have been terrible because momma has decided to take away ALL treats that have any type of MEATZ as their main ingredients simply because I have been drinking water like crazy and then piddling throughout the house. Gone are my wonderful Cowboy Steaks along with the tasty duck strips that I adore. They have been replaced with hard crunchy doggy biscuits that are okay but honestly they just don’t satisfy like real MEATZ treats. Also gone are the kittie’s food bowls and water dish as they are now sitting on top of the crates so the kitties can get to them but I can’t. I am so desperate that I have been following momma around begging, yes, BEGGING, for a decent treat but momma has not given in especially since I have now stopped drinking three huge bowls of water and am no longer piddling all over the place.
How will I survive without MEATZ treats? Of course I could live on MAZY’s Applesauce/sweet potato/oatmeal bones (hint, hint, Mazy can momma have the recipe?)
Anyhow, I’m hoping momma will give in but after having to wash all the bedding and the floors a couple of time I’m guessing she isn’t going to forget about the new treat restrictions anytime soon.
Hugs and kisses,

It appears that I barked too soon because although Dogster removed the nasty ole red "X" that was displayed instead of my lovely photo that I posted the other day, today, when I added the photo that my wonderful pal Nina did for me the red "X" is back.
Maybe Dogster has a new policy to screen all photos first before displaying them on Dogster.
Anyhow, here is the link to the photo that Nina did for me...
Thank you Nina for the pretty pink picture frame.
Hugs and kisses,
