Mom Says I Don't Know How Lucky I Am

What a beautiful day. The sun is shining on us and Mom is home all day.

Mom was cutting the grass out front and a car parked in front of the house had 3 cats in it. It's kind of a warm day and there was a litter box and food in the back and it was parked under a shady tree and the windows were partly open and Mom checked and it wasn't hot in there but it didn't look like there was much water in the bowl. The cats did not look like they were in distress but Mom was still concerned. This car had never parked here before. There was a woman cleaning up a yard across the street for someone so Mom thought she might be the owner of the car. Mom really doesn't like to interfere but when it's critters she does. It was the woman's car and she thanked Mom for coming to talk to her rather than calling someone on her. She said she was watching for when the sun came out. Mom told her she was just a little concerned because it didn't look like there was much water in the bowl. It turns out the woman didn't want to put too much water in the bowl because it might leak into the cage below with the guinea pig in there. Then she told Mom they were all living in the car right now. That is very sad.

Mom told us we should thank our lucky stars that we are well fed and looked after. It would be horrible living in a car. We will pray that their situation changes.


I Tangled With a Panther

Big excitement in the back yard tonight. There was a panther in the neighbors yard right on the other side of my fence. Well I sounded the alarm and that creature hissed at me but stood his ground. I was impressed that he dared stand up to me. Mom says my 18 pounds can be fierce. Then she starts laughing. You underestimate me woman. Well Mom says I was making way too much noise and she came and picked me up and took me in the house. How embarrassing. Would Hercules mother drag him into the house when he was defending his territory?

So I was ever vigilant watching the grounds from inside the house. Would you believe it, the creature was now on the overhang of the dog kennel attached to the garage. Then I got a good look at the "creature". It was black and white which raised a bit of a fear but I quickly surmised it wasn't a skunk. Just a sassy black and white cat from across the street. But, it could have been a panther.

What an adventure. I will surely sleep the sleep of the brave tonight.

This hero thing can be taxing, but the women (Priscilla and Mom) are safe.


There's been a sighting.

I almost missed it. I was just waking up form one of my maps today and I thought I was hallucinating. I saw a glare in the Southern sky. It was the sun. Only there for a brief time but Mom says he'll be back tomorrow.

Just wanted to thank everyone for all my hugs and balloons. Brightened up our days. You guys rock.


Who Kidnapped Mr. Sun

Okay I'm sending out a search party. We haven't seen Mr. Sun all week. I know he's always in exotic locales to shine on the beaches but he's always come back before. It's getting depressing.

Priscilla and I are offering a reward. 2 cups of kibble and some of my new duck/apple treats.

Please bring him back...............................


Mr. Sun is in the House

What a beautiful morning. The Sun is shining in the office and Priscilla and I are basking in it's rays in our new beds.

Oh yeah. Mom bought us each a new bed. I've had a small bed for years (turns out it was a cat's bed - what were you thinking Mom?) that sits on Mom's bed in the corner and all of a sudden about a month ago Priscilla had the audacity to start using it. Can you believe the nerve of her. So Mom decided to get us each a larger bed. So now both of our beds are on top of Mom's bed with snuggly blankets on top. It is heaven.

At bedtime Mom puts our beds in the kitchen and we snuggle under the covers with Mom in her bed. Mom says she feels like an Oreo sandwiched between the two of us. But she wouldn't have it any other way. We sleep in a twin bed so it is cozy but just big enough for the three of us. Mom's bed is in her office in a sunny part of the house and only a twin bed will fit in there. The real bedroom is now Mom's sewing room. We enjoy that room during the day when the sun moves.

Mom did say she can't wait for warmer weather so we can have a bath. Is that a polite way to say we stink Mom? We tolerate baths but we don't like them. Mom is devious, she suddenly picks one of us up, puts us in the bathtub with her and shuts the glass door. We are trapped. But the torment doesn't last long and we come out smelling a whole lot better.

Should be 40 degrees today, hopefully it will melt more of that 9.5 inches of snow Mother Nature gifted us with on Thursday night. Mom shoveled the paths and city sidewalk but refuses to do the driveway. She says enough is enough and as long as she had a three day weekend she is waiting for it to melt, she doesn't really need to go anywhere until Monday. It's been a horrible winter but I think the end is near.

Enjoy your sunbeams my friends.


I Promise Not To Get the Big Head

All I can say is Wowser! Dogster made me a Diary Pick - twice this month. This has to mean I get more treats. Are you reading this Mom?

My handsome face on the community page is bound to make the ladies wild.

Darn! Mom has to work today. She usually takes Fridays as vacation but this is her busy time of year so we only get her on the weekends. We will just have to enjoy the weekend. Mom calls me Velcro because I follow her around all the time. Who doesn't love their Mom?

So enjoy the day my friends. Our friend Jim in North Carolina is waking up to 24 degrees to warm up to 70's. Crazy weather.



Diary Pick - Yipeeee

Yay, Dogster in their infinite wisdom has once again honored me for my gift of gab. How do I do it? All kidding aside, I'm very humble. And Mom says if you buy that she has a bridge you can buy.

We've been having a heat wave 20 degrees. But not so warm with no sun today and that wind. Yowser. But Mom is promising us that the weekend promises a 40. Then we get to go on pooty patrol or shall I say Mom gets to have all that fun. Would love to pitch in Mom - but sorry no thumbs.

Mom almost sat on me tonight, I would have been smushed. My fault I was hiding in blankets. And my dear sister Priscilla was sitting close by watching it all happen and gave no warning. That girl is devious. She probably thought if I got smushed more food for her. Luckily I made some movement before Mom sat down.

Well better go check to see if Mom wants to play ball with me. Later friends.


Mom Is A Trickster

Mom took the day off. We've been hanging with her all day. Mom took my small red rubber wiffle ball and but it inside the large blue one. Hey no fair Mom. I don't have thumbs. But I gave it a good try. She eventually took pity on me and got it halfway out so I could get it free. Now I'm hiding it. I don't know what she was thinking.

Mom is draining sometimes. Priscilla and I finally pooped out and we are heading off for naps. Don't tell Mom I'm hiding under the blankets. I guess Mom doesn't realize we sleep most of the day. Priscilla needs her beauty sleep and I need to recharge.

Just give me an hour Mom and I'll be your littler energizer bunny once again.

Life is good.


I'm In Heaven

What a fun day. So many valentines, like being in heaven. I'm sure I've missed someone. So everyone please know that you hold a special place in my heart.

Mom sent my photo to someone in Arizona today and she said "I was more than precious". Now don't get me wrong, I love being adorable but what does "more than precious" do to my macho image.

Happy days ahead - so glad our community pages are sticking around. We would have been devastated to lose all our friends.


Is It True

Mom heard a rumor that the Dogster/Catster community pages were not going to be shutting down. Can this be true? Mom is doing her happy dance (not a pretty sight).

We sure hope this will happen - Mom says losing all our friends would be like losing a village.

Can life get any better than this - and warm weather is on the way.

Oh happy day.
