Hi A Gracie!
Lily's here with some tacos and a pitcher of margaritas. How about we do some Latin dancing tonight? I'm feeling like kicking up the paws. Mom had a delightful day at work. Just kidding! Naw, she was a complaining curmugeon. WEll, she did try to smile but it was a little on the fake side. Emmi is doing ok and mom thinks the treatment is working well for her. Glad about that.

Oh those cinnabon moonpies were kittilicious! LOVED them! This is so exciting to see Elmer in the window today, we are so happy for him!

Have a great evening! Big hugs!!

TODAY'S FUN FACTS
I want to thank every kitty for your votes and support. Hope you have been enjoying
the Cat Facts. For the next few days, I will be blogging a few fun facts about cats.

Here are today's fun facts:

*A cat can move each ear independently. He can aim the cup of his ear in the direction
of the sound to improve his hearing.

*Cats can see well in dim light, but they cannot see in total darkness.

*Cats hear a much broader range of sounds than people do.

*The tip of a cat's nose is covered by a tough layer of skin called nose leather.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Hope you are having a good day!! Leaving a vote for you!

Your friend,
Buddy

♥ Ok, here's the Deal or No Deal!!!! Mom and dad heard on our Local News the other night about outside kitties getting sick and dying due to the Feline Distemper about five or so miles from us so mom made appointments for our outside kitties ASAP!!!!

♥ UPDATE: 1/29
Mom was able to get my littermate SISSEE #11531 in to see Dr. Lisa this morning to get her Distemper vaccine. She was NOT a happy girl going there, being there and coming home as she meowed all the time --- LOUDLY!!!! Tehehehe!!!!

♥ TC also went in this morning to see Dr. Lisa for his spinal adjustment. Mom also had them give him a Distemper vaccine as well afterwards. Dr. Lisa says TC is such a GOOD boy as he NEVER meows in complaints and just enjoys his treatments as he lays on the warm SnuggleSafe. TC is finally feeling a bit better as his pain has lessened some between taking the Curcumin powder, the Traumeel (1 pill 2X day), the Dasuquin (1 capsule 2X day) and the Chiropractic. He also loves his electric sleeping pad. He goes back next Thursday for another adjustment.

♥ Mom will be capturing MYSTEANAH-GRE' late this afternoon as mom also made an appointment for her to get her Distemper vaccine since no one has claimed her. She's considered to be a part of our family.

♥ On Saturday (1/31) mom has to TRY to capture NEUBEE #123633 first, then she will get PATCH GIRL #12767 and SUEZEE #11528 as she will be taking ALL three in the same time to get their Distemper vaccines. NeuBee will have to be transferred into a squeeze-crate at the vets since she WILL NOT let any human touch her other than mom. A few years back NeuBee had bitten mom's hand sinking all four canines into it!!!! Dr. Nancy gets to do these 3 girls!!!!

♥ We will try to visit as many as possible today, but doubt if we can get to all.

Hi Furry Godmom!
Wait no more, the invite is up on CMR as of this morning. And I see that Elmer is COTD, what a cool surprise! Hope the big guy is doing okay.

Mom took me for my weigh-in and I was 16.8, which is good. She was SO good about rationing me that I actually started to drop a bit last time I was weighed so I'm back up and staying stable at just around 17 lbs like I'm supposed to.

Sooo ... something about some interns playing with their balls in the biffy? This football business gets stranger and stranger, mol.

Oh cool, The Moj just tried to horn in on Evie's spot of sunshine that she was lounging in. Evie didn't want to share and game of patty-cake ensued. They looked like they were going to mix it up for a minute there, then Evie gave the Evie eye and stomped off. The Moj looks all like "there was plenty of room for both of us". Sisters! -- Mike

Hi Gracie!
You gotta be kiddin', the Butlers have not seen birdies yet?! Well THEY are in for a treat! The Moj is all eyes these days in the living room window, wait'll the Butlers see crows and blue jays and sparrows and ... oh, our very favourite, chickadees!

Ewwww, we Googled the Double Down Dog and ewwwww .... as Jay Leno would say "HOW fat are we??" That we just do away with the bun and wrap our weenie dog in coated fried chicken?? With cheese glopped on it?? Sounds like somethin' Dad would love, mol. But for a Super Bowl snack (SNACK??! HOW many calories must be IN that baby??!) it sounds just right so bring a whole bunch of 'em to Mike & Dolly's. After all, if you eat it durin' the Super Bowl it has no calories, right? -- MJ

Hi AQ Gracie
What’s purring with you? We are getting excited about watching our local guy Jamie Collins (#91 on the Patriots) play in the Super Bowl. NBC Sports was here in town last week, doing interviews with locals and filming our high school where Jamie played football & basketball. The segment about Jamie is called “Hometown Heroes” and it will air on NBC during their 6 hour pregame show Sunday.

Have a fun weekend. Go Patriots! Go Jamie! Yes that is a picture of Jamie on the bottoms of our pages. He is a very nice young man.

Purrs to you,
K Casper Todd

P.S. We plan to leave a blog on CMR tomorrow about MerryBelle’s visit with Dr. William. Please keep my sweet sister in your prayers.

we'll be watching puppy bowl or kitten bowl or both instead. depends on the weather as 2-4" snow tonight/tomorrow for a messy commute again janet hates that, but is going in, and a possible noreaster on monday which again we DON'T need right now. let it slide further to the south and out to sea! sandy,ab,haley,angels

NOW your talking GG!!
LOVE the profile pic! Makes me...hungry. Ya know,I loves me some Skittles,but not the light pink ones-gag. Nope-I'll pick out all the orange ones and you can have the rest. They are what keeps my orange so orange! Didn't believe that,did ya.It was worth a try.
Its puzzle day. I never could get the hang of puzzles. I mean,word puzzles-too hard,crossword puzzles-ain't never heard of half of that stuff,put together puzzles,some clown always steals a few of the pieces to drive me batty. No really,it was a clown,I swear! I don't much care for clowns and their scary faces anyway,might as well blame the clown,or Mallow. Its always fun blaming Mallow :)

Hi Angel Q. Gracie and family!
Hopefully all our furiends and their families are safe and will be able to recover quickly from the violent snowstorm that hit the northeast. Thank goodness it wasn’t quite as bad as predicted, but better to be safe than sorry.

Meanwhile, the weather here in California is like the flip side of the coin - dry and warm. It’s a shame we can’t trade some our sunshine for just a little bit of rain and snow. My sister Callie and I were catnapping in the backyard. Whitey and Orangie have started waiting by the back door to open in the morning. The two kitties roam the yard for a while, chase a few birds that are brave enough to land on the deck and then they both run back upstairs to catnap in their window beds. My Mom is glad to see Whitey and Orangie exploring and getting more exercise. Callie doesn’t appreciate them getting comfortable around HER house, but she’s getting more tolerant.:)

Your Seattle Seahawks profile picture is beautiful! GO Seahawks! We were very late to the hockey game tonight. This is the first time it has completely slipped my Mom's mind! (Must be old age setting in!). Mom blamed Dad because when he came home from school today, he was complaining non- stop about work and union issues! Boring!:)

We thought of your Mom today when we read today's poem. Give your sweet Mom and the kitties warm hugs for us. And Go Seahawks!

We left a vote with purrs, warm hugs and prayers for our furiends and their families in need.

HOW MANY CATS? =^.^=
~~~~~
There once was a time when I had just one cat
But he needed a friend and so that was that.
But when the friend came, she invited her brother;
In less than a month, followed "Fifi," their mother.
Four cats now - that's the end I say
But I encountered a litter in my garage one day.
I found excellent homes for kits one, two and three,
But kit number four and Mom stayed on with me.
Kept indoors, all neutered - my family six strong;
I said - NO MORE - but not for long.
"June" was abandoned right near my job.
The day she was spayed, along came "Bob."
Well this all took place some years back
Now how many cats? I stopped keeping track.
I spend hours each day giving scratches and pats,
Some people have rugs; I have wall-to-wall cats!

-Dutch Carrie

Hey A Q Gracie!
Thank you so much for stopping by to congratulate me for my COTD! So Sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you. Mom has been busy working. Thank you so much for that 88 layer salmon creme cake and thank you for that beautiful calico quilt. It is lovely and will keep me warm. The cake was delicious. Thank you again.

Hey a Gracie!
OH LOOKIE! You have the Seattle Skittles pic up! Whoo hoo! It suits ya, gurlfurriend! It sure was pawsome to see you at the rink and I stopped on the way over to pick up some apples and vanilla mice cream. I'm going to bake an apple pie and we can have it warm out of the oven with some ice cream.

I didn't have a game tonight but RennieBoots was in goal for her game. She stopped a lot of shots. Maybe we could offer her some pie and mice cream.

Mom had a tough day today; she will be glad when the boss is back, it has been a long long week. Mom is looking forward to relaxing in the whirlypool tub tonight. Jakar said he may stop by later. Hope he's in time for warm apple pie.

Emmi's doing ok; she seems lots better since dad and sis have been giving her the meds. Hope she continues to be ok for a long, long time.

Oh yeah, we thought Princess Cinderella Jade was lovely....not so much the NOT-princess Ashley with her beaded gown and ear of corn. What's with that? Do you think she knows how she comes across? She will now and so will the rest of the world. Tee hee. YEP the skinny girl with the short hair is the worlds best at complaining, then faking a smile when Chris comes by. Never saw anyone put on such a two-face. Well mom says yep she used to know a purrson like that but hasn't seen them in a good while and hopes never to again.

I better scoot; mom has a date with the bubbly tub, then she wants to be tucked in. Catch ya later, GG! HUGS!

Great picture, Zippy!
Lily found a really good one for your Angel sis! But of course, we black cats ARE the best at everything, right?

Mom is going around saying "I did it!" She got A. Smokey's correspondence done, and Mikey's golf summary, and then Evie got an emergency request to do tonight's KCK summary because Kelsee's blogger has pneumonia. Yucky for her! Plus A. Smokey got finished his thank-yous for his gifts on Catster, too and we even got to Human Channel and Mom got her supper.

Now Mikey wants the computer to write the invite to the Super Bowl pawty to post on CMR tomorrow. It's a good thing we got the tablet so we don't have to wait for one another, huh?

I don't know about notches on the baby fangs, we never noticed that. It's more like you notice when the big ones start to come in. The Butlers probably have their baby ones still if they're only 4 months old. Especially if they're going to be big kitties, at first we look like sabre-tooth tigers with our grown-up teeth till we grow into them a bit. Most of us swallow our baby teeth and I guess that's what I did too. Mikey lost one on the rug and Mom grabbed it up, she still has it in a little container next to one of Angel Smokey's fangs that got rotten and fell out when he was 16 or so. The baby fang looks so tiny! And Mikey is so HUGE!!

I'm here just in time to help you feed the Butlers lunch. I brought some Batman Spaghetti-O's to cook up for them (giggle)! -- Moj

♥ Thank you from Angel Smokey ♥
Thanks for coming to honour the anniversary of the day I made my final crossing. It’s the same kind of day at my earth home that it was on this date 11 years ago, cold but bright & sunny through the windows. I remember on my last day here on this earth Mom carried me to a nice patch of sunshine where I could stretch out the way I’d always loved to do. That sure felt good on my tired old bones!

I had a really great life with my family, and almost 18 years of it besides. How many of us are lucky enough to be able to say that? So you're right, we want to celebrate all those happy years and what better way to do it than with a whole bunch of CC friends and an 88 layer Smokey Mountain Blueberry Cream Moonpies Cake? ~~ Angel Smokey

Hi Furry Godmom!
I get to borrow the 'puter back from Angel Smokey for a little bit, and you are my first stop. Nope, I didn't see that the Patriots want an apology .... oh gee, it just dawned on me, does this mean that people will be having "Deflategate Parties" this Super Bowl? You sent me over to Google and I see where Bill Nye the Science Guy is weighing in now. As far as I'm concerned this just makes it all more fun.

Yep, we have come up with some Super Bowl food and all (well, some anyway) will be revealed when I post the invitation on CMR tomorrow. I'll be writing it up later today ... just got to do my golf summaries first. Thankfully it's been a quiet day on CC so far so Angel Smokey has gotten started on his thank-yous already.

I think there's a very good chance your Mom's check engine light will come back on. Disconnecting the battery reboots ours, sometimes if the problem it's on because of has been fixed it will stay off, but otherwise it comes back on. Ours is still on and it's been through a whole bunch of diagnostics and everything that showed up has been fixed. Remember last year and the Air Care adventure, trying to get the light to stay off long enough to get the car through the test one last time?

Speaking of which ... they actually did away with the Air Care program as scheduled! Big Bro Will got a notice about his car insurance renewal and there's no great big "Air Care Required" up at the top of it. Now we just wait to see what they come up with instead ... Dad says there's no way the Government is going to just let all that revenue go without introducing some new program eventually. We'll see! -- Mike

we're all so happy
that all the outside work is done and out of the way for another day at least as by friday nat will be shoveling likely as janet has asked him to make sure it's all done by the time she's in from work seeing she's working 7-11 and we're due to get 1-3" fluffy wet snow, then a bigger one on monday which has several senarios of either 5-8" fluffy or slop falling, or a sinker to all rain, or all rain janet would like to see the first as it's easier to shovel as well as the last to wash away some on the ground! nat did the roof/gutters today while janet shoveled paths further out for pepper as well as trenches along the house so it's all done and they'll have to remember to keep things cleaned out otherwise problems will arise if they don't keep it clean! sandy,ab,haley,angels

MOL Gracie! Ya remember
when Dolly was just a little kit she went along with Q. Cherish on her round the world tour? That's where she got all mature & grown up for her age and was educated in fine style? Well, WE are gonna educate those Butlers, kinda the same way (snicker). Oh, Mom will feel SOOO much better if WE are along to keep an eye on things ... yeah in your dreams, Gracie! Though she knows I wouldn't let anything happen to the Moj or any of the other young ones. Oh, you are givin' me SO many ideas for if I get to be Queen, we couldn't possibly even fit 'em all in.

Hows about come spring we go in a fleet of those cool little teardrop trailers? If ya don't know what those are, look 'em up, they are COOL! You make 'em yourself, so you can really get creative! There's a ladybug one out there on the 'net, I know the Moj will take dibs on that one.

Oh, geesh, I'll BET your Mom felt bad that time she didn't come home for 8 days! Thank goodness for Auntie Susie! Mom used to worry about that with Big Sis Becca when it was just her & Evie. Couldn't do much about it when they were in Calgary, but Becca had a really good work friend who kittysat sometimes so he woulda stepped in. When Becca took Evie back a couple of years ago & moved her to Vancouver, Mom told her to make sure her landlord & boss had our number just in case of something like that. After all, there was that day a few years ago when MOM went to work in the morning as usual, broke her leg on the job & got home 4 days later. Stuff happens. And Becca listened, she said Mom is her emergency contact on everything anyway.

Now while I infuse some more Skittles vodka & hand the 'puter over to Angel Smokey, Lily said somethin' that gave me this most awful earworm, and I am such a sweet Angel that I am gonna pass it on:

Hey A Gracie!
What a BUMMER that mom's car wouldn't start; thank goodness a mew battery fixed it right up. Hope no more car issues for a LONG LONG time. That's so frustrating since mom just had all the work done not that long ago. The car should be purring like a kitten now.

Mom is just as happy that she didn't get reminded about M.O.N.D.A.Y. You know she's not the biggest Monday fan in the world. Tuesday is not quite as bad.

Now isn't that the weirdest thing. ..... the winner of the muck contest goes on a date to SF. Lovely evening and she can't stop talking about body building. I'm not sure she ever asked Chris any questions other than a wierd one at the end. Mom didn't think they were on the same page. Glad she's gone. Hope the other one with the huge false eyelashes goes soon. Mom doesn't like her. And mom developed a dislike for the thin brunette with the short dark hair. She's way too much of a complainer. Who needs that.

Well, GG, gotta scoot. Have a super evening! Big big hugs! !

Hi Angel Q. Gracie and family!
We hope and pray all our furiends in the path of the northeastern storm are safe and warm. Watching the mews is unnerving and hard for us to imagine such extreme conditions. God bless all the people and animals out there without shelter.

We're glad to hear your Mom's car just needed a battery and now its good as mew! Your Mom sure is a great shopper. Two frames for the price of one! I bet the pictures look lovely hanging in your house.

Hee, hee, hee! Your Mom is in great shape! Look at how many cats she takes care of every day! Not an easy feat! My ole Mom gets tired out with just four of us. MOL!

Oh no! No more Petco for your Mom?! That guy at Petco sounds like a real jerk! He can't be good for their business! Your Mom is such an angel. We hope she gets to take Monahan home. We hope Elmer is still doing better each day. We always have your precious family in our prayers. Thanks for the orange fluffer moonpies and the orange crush! That hit the spot!

We left a vote with soft purrs, warm hugs and prayers for our furiends and their families in need.

Hi Zippy!
Well, Mom says today is more like it, whatever that means. I think it means she's mostly caught up on CC and has even been over to Catster. It also means that the big box full of cardboard boxes is gone and a couple of other things she put out for the garbage guys. The recycling bag is back in the house so soon she's going to take a break and start filling it up for next Monday. She's even thinking about making a Valentines picture for A. Mallow & O.J. Something about ducks being in a row, but I do NOT see any ducks! Goofy humans!

I lost my baby fangs right around 6 months old and so did Mikey, so the Butlers probably will too. They're the last big kitty teeth to come in, the bottom ones usually come first and then the top ones grow in and push the baby ones out. I had double fangs on each side for a while on top and then poof, the baby ones were gone.

Oh, Cadbury was just making mincemeat out of that bubble wrap with his great big paws and those extra claws! I think it would be an absolute hoot if he got bigger than Mikey. And/or PiqueABoo! Why he could pick you up in one arm and me in the other. He could leap tall buildings in a single bound ... oops, wrong superhero. Cadbury kind of looks like Batman, don't you think?

Hi Angel Gracie!
Yes, we know Exit's mom is from Denmark. Mom has never been there, her brother in law is working there now during the week and he goes home to the Netherlands on weekends. Mom never went to Scandinavia, it sounds like your mom had a lot of fun there!
Yes, Mom has heard or Mukilteo, she is thinking they took the ferry from there.

Why can't Rescued Paws be in Petco anymore? What are they going to do about showing their kitties for adoption?

Well, I met Dr. Candy yesterday. I weigh 12 pounds 12 oz and she thinks I am going to get bigger because my paws are huge. She also thinks I am a pure bred maine coon that was "dumped" because I am not purrfect, I have cow hock back legs. She said I could have been born like this or they could have kept me in a cage for a long time and that can cause it too. Otherwise I am very healthy, I did not need shots or a fecal or bloodwork because I had all that from the rescue group, and the best thing of all is Dr Candy did not charge Mom for the exam because she is a returning client and I was a rescue adoption!! Dr Candy even gave me a treat!! So yesterday was a real eventful day because not only did I go to the vet but we had lots of strangers and lots of noise and I was locked in the bedroom all day while they did all these things. It is going on again today too. I wish mom would let me out so I could supervise!! Hugs,

Mouse hunting once again
It must be too cold for the poor little rodents to be outside too because we've caught 3 in the last 2 days! Purrhaps I should correct that & say that Fluffinella, Monkey & Trixie have caught them & I had nothing to do with it...MOL! The kittens try to 'help' but so far they've managed to let them get away each time so that one of the original catchers has to grab them again. Mom always says 'thank you girls' before she scoops it up & tosses it outside while they look confused about where it went. Once it's out the door Joseph makes quick work of the tasty morsel so mom won't have to look at it...MOL!
It's been a strange week because she also found a dead possum on our porch Sunday morning. We're not sure what could have happened to it but there it was lying beside the front door. You should have heard mom squeak about that until dad got rid of it...MOL! She said there's no way she was scooping that big hairy, long-toothed rodent up & it was scaring the outside crew too. ICKY!! Our visiting kitty (Bartholomew) is still coming over a couple of times each week but he's not staying quite as long since mom scolded him for trapping JJ under the grill cover. Guess he doesn't like the 'be nice' rule we have to live by...MOL!

Well got to run so I can plan Trixie's BD pawty on Thursday. Hmmm....too bad mom tossed those rodents out or she could have had a pawsome mouse flavored cake. Oh well...catnip or tuna flavored will also make her purr...MOL!

Warm hugs,

"♫ Sittin' in the win-dow ..
watchin' gar-bage trucks - go - by ... ♫"

That's what Mike & the Moj are doin' anyway. They got the yard waste bag. Now we're waitin' for the recyclin' guys to grab that big box o' cardboard and then the regular garbage guys hopin' they get an old chair cushion Mom put out besides.

Then when the empties come in, the Mom hasta start fillin' 'em up again. Psst ... today she's gonna sneak the old busted blender and a couple of other dead appliances over to the recycling centre ... the ones Dad insists they stick down the basement because he "might fix it some day". You know, that day when the sky will be fulla flyin' pigs (snort!)? Oh, bit by bit she's gettin' it done.

No way could your Mom have left those Butlers at Petco, even for the day. She'da kept flashin' on that image of little Cadbury gophered up sayin' "help, humans!", you know she would. Mine woulda too. Geesh, she hates to leave our kitties HERE for the day, in case somethin' should happen to 'em. Our Moms are sad, sad cases, Gracie!

But still, I second your notion of what we should do on that Petco guy's other leg. And before we do it, we should have a heapin' serving of those Boston Baked Beans that Mike & Dolly have simmerin' already for their pawty on Sunday. What say you, Purrtner in Crime? Get on the wrong side of OUR humans when they try to help homeless kitties, you gotta deal with US!

Oh, awesome, of course we gotta visit the Overlook Hotel! Oh, the Moj has missed out on so many cool places too. And the Beer Can House in Houston Texas, Gracie! We have GOTTA go there!

Thanks Furry Godmom!
I would have bragged a bit longer about how the Royals WON and all, but Dolly & I do have a Super Bowl pawty to get ready for so we wanted to get our Seahawks on right away. A. Mallow changed her profile picture today because it dawned on her that if OJ were to come along & of course he doesn't know anything about the Snowball Classic, he might really wonder why her profile said "A. Mallow loves O.J. - darn!" So she put her TV veggout picture up for the Super Bowl. Mom hasn't made Imikimis for anyone except me yet, she's been busy blogging and hunting for Super Bowl food.

Oh, Mom won't be done sorting for months! Not unless she wants to take a couple of weeks & work full-time on it, and if the pawrents rent a garbage bin they just might end up having to do that in the end. But right now it's like: she wants to replace the ratty chest of drawers they keep all the tools & house repair stuff in, with Becca's old chest of drawers that's sturdier and bigger. So that means she would have to empty both dressers. Then shove Becca's old dresser over to the tool spot. Oh, but first they have to move a couple of boxes of records & other stuff because Becca's old dresser is wider than the one that's there. Then they have to sort out all the tools & house repair stuff, a lot of it is garbage & some of the rest of it is scattered around. Mom would like all the plumbing parts to be one place, and all the screws another, etc. So one thing just leads to another, it would all take time and thinking about it makes her eyeballs roll around and make rattling sounds.

Now as of today the big box of cardboard is gone from in front of Becca's old dresser, some of the stuff IN it and the records that are in the way will go to Krazy Bob in a couple of weeks, it's all looking more doable just a bit at a time. It won't really get into gear until after tax time is over. Dad usually gets into a throwing out mood after tax time anyway. He keeps so many papers & files down there that belong to other people and a couple of businesses the files belong to are shutting down this year.

I can just picture little Cadbury, who couldn't have been bigger than I was in my C-cup picture, running out to flag Auntie Susie down for help. Shh ... Mojo might be embarrassed to have me telling you this, but she thinks he is a real hero!

Hey cool! Glad to hear your Mom's problem was just needing a new battery. Bonus that the "check engine light" went off. It could come back on after a while, though, I wouldn't be surprised. They always go off for a while when you disconnect the battery. That's how Dad tried to fool Air Care, mol, but their computer can tell when you've done that.

It's a sign, Gracie! It's a sign ...
I mean, let's STILL go pee on that nasty Petco guy's leg & all, but just about the time your Mom was gonna start takin' the Butlers with her on adoption days? That is, if she was still undecided. The first Sunday after their big kitty surgery her car went ker-poop, and then she finds out it's the last day. Definitely a sign. Those little cuties are meant to stay. What am I sayin' "little", they're closin' in on my size already!

Yep, June is the beer can regatta, at least we've always had it in June. Sturgis is August 3 - 9 and then there's another big rally celebratin' its 92nd year this year, in Laconia NH. That one is Jun 13 - 21st, it ends on my crossing day so maybe we could take in that one this year. AND there is a Blue Moon this year, on July 31st. Remember that scheme we had to go to the Blue Moon motel in Niagara Falls?

We have some great stuff comin' up this year, and now your little Butlers get to come along for all of it. Wait'll they getta loadda Pinto Island! -- MJ

Lily is coming over and bringing her Jason Mraz CDs.....mom is listening to his Live in Chicago CD. It's pretty fun. Mom would love to see him live one day. I'm bringing over some leftover Tandoori chicken and Basmati rice and some chocolate chip cookies that Dad didn't hide well. Tee hee

Isn't that cool the Snowball Classic page got COTD! Super exciting! It was so much fun but mom was glad to get her bottom off the computer chair! MOL it went on a LONG time!

Thanks for the concats on the big five years on CC - - gosh the last five years have flown by!

Hi Zippy!
Oh cool, Jeeves is gonna be a writer! Maybe she can write novels about great exotic places .. and take US along for the ride! Once your Mom makes sure that the room is Butler-proofed, Jeeves can have at it.

Nuts about your Mom's car, though! Hope she was able to get it fixed! Good thing it was nice weather and your Mom could walk to Petco. For what turns out to be her last time there (sniff). Bummer!

I hear it's Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day so I brought lot of the stuff for us to appreciate with the Butlers. Here, I'll lay a sheet of it on the floor, and we can pounce and pop to our little hearts' content. Well, NOT so little. I think Cadbury will be as big as me before you know it! He just might give Pique a run for his money in the growing department and end up as big as Mikey. I'll still be able to handle him though, I handle Mikey just fine.

Oh look! Jeeves is crawling UNDER the bubble wrap! Let's get her! *pop!* *pop!* -- Moj

Hi Angel Queen Gracie and family!
We’ve been listening to the mews reporting on the big storm that’s scheduled to hit the Northeast. It sounds very frightening. We have everyone in its path in our thoughts and prayers.

It’s almost the end of January and still no rain in sight for us. The mews said this could be the driest month of January ever for us. Not a good sign.

We had a great time at the Snowball Classic last night! We were cheering for the Peasants since Talley was playing for that team, but at least it was close. Did you win any of the raffle prizes? We didn't, but it sure was fun watching all the kitties checking for their lucky number!

We hope your Mom gets her car fixed today and hopefully its not too expensive. It's always something.:( We're so happy Jeeves and Cadbury are going to stay in your happy home. Yippee! I bet they're overjoyed! Give Elmer a warm hug for us and tell him to keep eating. Thanks for the delicious custard filled moonpies with French vanilla milk. Yummy! You're the best!

We left a vote with soft purrs, warm hugs and prayers for our furiends and their families in need.

ODE TO MY CAT =^.^=
~~~~~
She's my alarm clock in the morning,
She's my friend and companion at night
And in all the in-between times
She's never out of my sight.
It's such a lovely feeling
To know she depends on me
For her food and warmth and shelter
So she gives me her love to see.
She plays with her toys; plays hide and seek
She's become the boss of the house!
Yet she has more fun with a walnut shell
Than she does with a catnip mouse!
The pleasure she gives me is a treasure
She greets me when I come in the door.
She seems to say "I've been lonesome so
Please don't go out anymore!"
She's my delight, my friend and my prankster
She pounces and jumps up real high
For a ball of yarn or a wiggly string
With a purr or a soft little cry.
She washes her face after eating.
Keeps her striped fur clean and sleek.
Jumps on my lap for approval and then
Curls herself up for her sleep.
So I wouldn't give up my kitty
For the world and all of its' gold.
'Cause if my kitty weren't with me
This world would be awfully cold!

-Doris A. Bartley

How was your weekend? We enjoyed a nice one. While Mommy was home from work for lunch today, she & Nana gave me 200 cc sub-q fluids. All went very well. They are still learning, but they will do anything to help me. For now, I get fluids every Monday & Thursday. I have an appointment with Dr. William this Friday for more bloodwork. Paws crossed for only good mews please!

TODAY'S CAT FACT
GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT OF KITTENS

A healthy kitten will have a steady weight gain daily. They usually opens their eyes 7-10 days after birth and soon after their ears open and their first teeth begin to appear.

About 3 weeks of age, kittens begin to walk and explore the environment. By about 5 weeks of age, kittens have most of their temporary teeth and begin to eat solid foods. By 6 weeks old, kittens have fully developed their brain and nervous system.

Kittens develop important physical skills by playing with one another and they learn to get along this way. By watching and imitating their mother, kittens improve many instinctive skills, especially hunting. Most cats reach their adult body size by about 1 year old.

Hi AQ Gracie!
Lily's coming over after the Snowball Classic! She has a HUGE sigh and is SO ready to relax! It was a ton of fun but I am so ready just to chill out and watch tv or sit by the fireplace and sip on something frosty and fruity. I have some chocolate chip cookies and homemade bread - Dad has been busy hasn't he? He was making cookies and mom said What, no home made bread? So he made some of that too. Mom got some hot out of the oven with butter. It was a fun, fun weekend and mom is so happy her kids were all home and she told Dad that remodeling the basement was SO WORTH IT! It is a fun place to have everyone hang out! Very very fun!

It was actually brother's g/f's brother who beat mom in Texas Hold 'Em. He lives about 20 minutes from us and his wife had other plans so brother invited him over. Everyone else went out and it was down to him and mom, and he beat her. Then they played Euchre for a while, but he didn't know how, so they had to teach him quick. He was just getting it when the others wanted to start a new game of poker. Mom had to go to bed about then, it was past her bed time. Dad stayed up about another half and hour, and then sis came down and joined them at poker.

Well, Gracie Gurl, I'm going to tuck mom in soon, so will let her go to the kitchen and see if there is anything she needs to do before she hits the hay.

Have a super duper evening! Big hugs!!

TODAY'S CAT FACT
HOW CATS COMMUNICATE TO EACH OTHER

Cats communicate to each other by means of odor. Cats have scent glands that are on their forehead, around their mouth, and near the base of their tail. The cat will rub these glands against people and objects. This marks them with their scent. Only cats and a few other animals can smell the odor.

Hi Gracie!
I dunno about that "kittens are fun" thing ~~ they tend to scare the wits outta me, all bouncy like they are. We usedta have a little orange one around here that freaked me right out. Hmmm ... wonder whatever happened to him anyway ??

Looks like the Moj is havin' fun with those little ones, and wow, Jeeves is learnin' to type already! Precocious little Butlers, ain't they? Aww, Spencer will get used to 'em, he's just tellin' 'em to keep their distance and show some respect and not gallop on him. I usedta growl at that little orange creature pretty much every day myself when he would get too close to me. Whatever DID happen to him ...?

Yep, the Beer Can Regatta is in June, right around the beginning of summer and the first one was just 2 days after I crossed the Bridge. I can't believe I'm comin' up on two years with wings! And you just passed 2 years. And we're still part of our families, ain't that great?

Buddy's blog today reminded Mom, there are a couple of spots where I usedta rub my face pretty much every day. One was right behind the Mallow mat, there's a corner there and I would always stand there rubbin' and purrin'. Mikey & Mojo use the mat a lot, but no one to this day has rubbed on that spot. I wonder if they can still smell me there, just a little bit? -- MJ
