Age: 13 years old

Gender: M

Coat: short haired

Education: My Story:
For my first 4 years I was an inside cat and only knew litter pans. Also, my first owner never cracked open a can of food. So, when Mom saved us from a dual cage at the PetsMart Humane Society room, the first thing she did on our first morning together was to give us a little Friskies fishy food. Ah, Heaven ever since!
And when we moved to her Mom's house on a farm I went outside for the first time: A Free & Joyous Cat.
I ran up and down the fields and hilly pastures for hours at a time. All the pent up energy just had to get out. More Heaven! Mom was having a physical breakdown and could not supervise me enough. Her Mom believed that cats should run free. I had never seen a dog before. There was a nice old dog living with us.
But one day Gma's friend came over with his strange looking, very fast hunting dog. When he chased me into the woods I just froze flat on the ground hoping he would pass by. But that dog grabbed me the minute I stood up and tried to run away. He held on and ripped (this is so hard to tell) the fur hide off my back.
Mom called and called me. Finally I crawled in from my hiding place hours later. Did you know that blood does not show up on a black cat? It just looks wet or oily. So it took her a few minutes to get me out from under the bed and to get a vet to see me on a Sunday. He was a wonderful cat expert. And the nurse kept telling Mom that when cats come in with these injuries they get euthanized. She tried to convince Mom to do this. Even her own Mother tried to convince her. But Mom said I was young and healthy. And besides, PD Budd was still too dependent on me, and would not survive without me. The vet showed Mom the extent of the injuries. He just folded my hide over and there were all my organs. When Mom pets me along the spine she is also petting the kidneys, liver, etc. The vet did a wonderful job and charged not too much money. I had drain tubes coming out of me for quite a while. The fur got sewn backwards in a couple of places and stood straight up. Mom brushes me often and it grows back correctly.

We do not live there any longer and I still have strong urges to go outside every morning, to never use a litter pan unless Mom goes away on vacation when we are not allowed outside. I remain terrified of dogs.

Yo Yo Golf! 2-22-15
Just get that thing swinging around on the string and WHACK! That ball will land in the middle of next week! Oh, this is a wonderful new sport we've invented! Wonder if it could ever be an Olympic event?

Practicing his yo yo swing while walking the dog but trying not to think too much about it, Luvbug lands one for 40 ... Mallow(32) tries to convince us cats are ALWAYS thinking, while also walking the dog. You call that thinking? So, new batch started in the cart barn? Well, that WAS thinking! ... Oh, it gets worse. Humble Mimi(39) couldn't get the dog to walk so she's rocking him in the cradle. What is WRONG with you?? ... Big Baldy *snicker* needs some warm undies since he decided he's too good for cat hair! Hahhaa! UBB(20) is in positive territory on CC2 only.

Tucker(20) is definitely not in the humble mood this morning, lining up a row of margaritas and getting ready to knock 'em down! ... Sandy(32) climbs out from under 6 feet (!) of snow and gets ready for more. And NONE of us is jealous! ... And finally Bee Gee(26) gets ready for her newest yo yo trick she taught herself: Whack the Kitty. As long as SHE is the kitty in question!

Okay, fur balls, here's the practice scoop:
Luvbug, 40 - Mallow, 32 - Mimi, 39 - UBB, 20 - Tucker, 20 - Sandy, 32 - Bee Gee, 26.

Now, let's all retire to the lounge while we take turns walking the dog around the world.

My single task for today
was doing this recap. :-)

Hey Baldy!
Great view of the stripped down undercarriage there! IF you like mushy food, have your mom get something at WalMart called "Chlor Tabs". (They are a WalMart brand called "Equate"). They are a generic medication called chlorpheniramine. Do NOT ask me how to pronounce it. Anyway, have her break it in half and smash it up and put it in some mush for you. It helps with scratching and itching. Don't use anything else unless you ask a vet. We know that chlor stuff is okay for cats.

As for the Saturday night card games, we need to set up a table at the WW. Think GTt will want to be the dealer, even thought it's not Go Fish? Haven't figured pout what to call the "recap" either, since there's really no recap in cards. Who KNEW this would be so complicated? Maybe we should put up a suggestion box over at CC2 on the WW page.

Dang, hope you haven't written me off yet? Could you collect that extra hair? I think that my secretary is working on a reflecting-fur for me. She is in need of extra insulation...I don't have enough...MOL. Cold here and I'm ready to migrate to a sunny south. Hope your mom is feeling better. Tell her that we're sorry for the lack of meow-mails. Your Catmas Card is still posted here. We love it :)

Hey there, baldy boy!
So, the vet can't say why you're shedding ala stripper ville? Maybe you and Mimi can get together on a pole dancing duet. Haha! Of course, that would be entirely up to her. She might not want somebody butting in on her act.

Mom said she'll look around and see if she can find out anything abut early male pattern baldness in post-middle age toms. Don't hold your breath. Maybe your mom knows someone who can crochet you a little body shirt. *snicker*

Clean the computer day? I don't even clean my closet,I don't even want to know what kind of mess is on the computer. Now,reading in the bathtub day is more like it! We can set the world record for the most number of cats in a bathtub reading. We can all pick a different book,read aloud,and we can claim to have read 9 books in one day.

Luvbug (50) is doing a happy rain dance,or a rainy happy dance,depends which way you look at it and which side of the rain you are on.

Mallow (47) is building a fire in the tub with her kindle. Oh,THE Kindle,makes all kinds of sense now.

I score a 28. I'm doing my own kind of happy dance,I get one day free from BG's bullying. Its a rule written somewhere on the club house bathroom walls.

Engine (54)has her sunhut rolling(you won't believe what I thought it said at first)with a pot of roly,poly fish heads in a dead rat marinate. Interesting texture.

Tuck and Dot(18) come sledding in (Tuck heard it was fish head day at the CS), Hey! What a furiend! He's invited us all over to his mom's hot tub to "read".

UBB (23) is having a little show and tell pawty with GTt as the main attraction,her and her 27 toes.Little freakish,gotta see it to believe it.

Mudcat (53) gives JC free bully time with no roll overs and no penalties. Who over flowed the water Hazards? What are you putting in them again...Hmmmm????

BG (38) Bully of all she bullies (did that make ANY sense? No) is keeping busy these days looking up dirty words in the dictionary,and vacuum cleaning the computer.

And,the Angels are last to blow in from another snow with a 12. Good enough to win!

1st: Angels 12 (told ya so)
2nd: Tuck and Dot with 18
3rd: UBB with 23

Losers: The title goes to the girls from the South-Engine 54,and Mudcat 53

Hey UBB! Have I got a special event for YOU!
It's Return Shopping Carts to the Supermarket Month. ALL month! We can go around, collect all of 'em we can. Bonus if we find those ones that the humans hafta put money in, right? And since we have ALL month to return 'em in, let's have some fun.

Ever hear of an Urban Iditerod? We get a buncha kitties together, dress up in goofy costumes, get 8 suckers .... I mean friends ... to pull the shopping cart while one of us rides in it and the other steers & hollers "MUSH!" I kid you not, humans really truly do that.

I think some humans don't have enough kitties to occupy their spare time, you know? -- A. Mallow

Get well, Buster! 1-27-15
The Shackers are all bringing best wishes to Luvbug's roommate Buster. Of course, Luvbug(36) arrives first with a clean crapper, because let's face it, when you feel crappy, well, enough said ... Mallow(45) arrives with a double-dose of confusion, which, although much to be expected, is absolutely no help at all! ... Steve(15) brings a colorful chocolate cake with double icing.

Well, Mimi(30), now you're talking! She's sending home a double Feeling Frisky hot toddy for Buster. I think I'm starting to feel sick to. *wink wink* ... Tucker(18) put plenty of thought into his idea for Buster - plenty of bubble wrap to to make Buster his very own "bubble boy" room! ... It's Engine(22) to the rescue with a chicken soup variation of Pot-O-Parrot with Plucked Pinfeathers, and vintage Heinecat, of course.

UBB(13) is delivering his jumbo stein of cart-barn still corn squeezin's. Now THAT'S some strong medicine! ... Bee Gee(36) is also heavily into thoughtful gifts today, as she provides a mallet for punching the clock. Any clock. No one needs a wake-up call when they're sick ... And the angels(18) drift in on a snowplow better late than never!

Okay, here's the way the scores look:
1st - Mallow, 45. Well, THAT'S not confusing!
2nd - Tie, Luvbug & Bee Gee, 36. Luvbug, maybe you can clean the crapper with BG's mallet.
3rd - Mimi, 30. Feeling frisky?

Poor UBB, in the cart barn again. Good news though - you have help from Steve! Isn't that great?? :-)

Maybe we should all have a vodka screwdriver -
orange juice, you know. Good for what ails ya!

Answer your cats questions day,as if they even listen to us. SO many questions to answer today,but I'll do my best. I have an answer to everything,might not be right,but its an answer.

Dear Tabby Steve:

Q: why am I in a fog,and what goes well with hot sauce? ~Luvbug(30)~
A: Because its NOT always sunny in Cali,and everything goes with hot sauce. I find it kind of numbs the tongue and dulls the senses.

Q: I question why I have so many questions. ~Mallow(41)~
A: Because your Mallow-thats why! BTW,the food dish WAS full *burp*

Q:Wait,I can't ask myself a question (although I DO talk to myself at length). I'll just sit and ponder the wonders of hot going coming out. Score 26

Q: How do I get rid of the clouds,and have only sun? ~Sandy(28)~
A: Move. (Its actually took me a while to figure that out)

Q: Where are the nip filled brownies,and why am I gaining weight? ~Mudcat(32)~
A: The cart barn,and the late night munchies.

Q: What is an "acceptable" time to open the juice bar,and what goes well with lizard? ~Engine (30)~
A: You know the deal-its always beer thirty somewhere in the world,and anything! Lizard tastes like chicken. MY question-what does chicken taste like?

Q: How can a blonde be a brownie,and why are shrimp dinners served in odd numbers? ~Tuck and Dot (26)~
A: Because the blonde failed Girl Scouts,and humans can't count.

Q: Is my massive "healthiness" a waste of my time,and who is taking me to lunch? ~BG(30)~
A: Its ALL about you,isn't it. Well,healthy is the root of all evil,and you'll soon see what loser takes you to lunch later. No really,loser buys.

Q: Anyone want to come to lunch with me,and where da pawty at? ~UBB(23)~
A;I'll come if your buying,and da pawty is ALWAYS at CS.

Scores-I'm all kinds of tired out...

1st: UBB 23
2nd: Tuck,Dot,and ME with 26
3rd: Sandy 28

Losers-AKA buyers of a massive lunch are.....Mallow 41,and Mudcat 32.

XOXO~Steve (AKA Dear Tabby)

1/21/15 - Hug a Squirrel Day!
If you can catch one that is. Actually, it’s National Hugging Day and Squirrel Appreciation Day but that won’t all fit in the header. And we all know what WE would like to do to those bushy tailed little varmints!

Luvbug also tells us it’s Hot Rod, Autumn and Angel Summer’s birthday, so it’s a black cat fest. Why, I count 34 (=7) of them gathered already! One of them is Mallow’s catty, who has left the Great One on her own to shake her tail and show everyone why her nickname is “The Squirrel”. Mojo that is. Mallow has a 34 (=7). Steve arrives, having heard the word ‘birthday” and after dropping off his 29 (=11) he’s on the hunt for cake.

The Angels swoop down to invite us to “♫ .. join in all their Angel games .. ♫”. Hmm, I think we’re just about a month late for that tune. It’s a 19 (=10) for them. Mimi is willing to forego the hugging and appreciate any squirrel who wants to dive into her hot tub full of mouse sauce. Any takers? Oh well, it’s a 38 (=11) for Mimi and the same for Engine, who brings us Smoked Snakes on Sticks. If it’s on a stick, it’s good eatin’ I always say.

Tucker sings to the birthday kitties and tries to hug his catty. He emerges from the First Aid Wagon wearing 29 (=11) Band-aids and willing to settle for birthday cake. BeeGee rushes in where Angels (literally!) fear to tread and threatens to hug STEVE! I don’t think we have enough bandaids for that one. Or a defibrillator for Steve either. Bee Gee does have 30 (=3) creative uses for squirrels, though. And just when we thought we could pack it in, along comes UBB, hugging squirrels and scoring an unbeatable 1 (=1).

Okay, NOW we can pack it in:
1st – UBB with a Garbage Day score of 1. I am NOT hugging my garbage can!
2nd – It has to be … BeeGee’s three. Such a poet I am!
3rd – Luvbug and Mallow, in 7th heaven
And to the cart barn with scores of 11 go Steve, Mimi, Engine, and Tucker. Hmm … that’s half the golfers, I guess we flip a coin for where the birthday pawty will be. No, not YOUR coin, Steve. I wasn’t born yesterday you know.

And now to place my summaries on those crazy pages I’ve been seeing all morning. Clearing the cache worked for about 5 minutes. Oh, what I go through around here …

Lots of long drivers today 1-20-15
Maybe it's the cheese. Or maybe it's the Spam Scramble on Engine's Vittle Volvo. Can we get some shredded cheese on that? Luvbug(40) is celebrating Day of Acceptance in the fog. He's also pouring the tea for whoever is still hoarse from cheering on their team Sunday ... Mallow(35) turns the crank on her camcorder, hoping for some good stuff to post on MewTube. Say "Cheese!" everybody! ... Disco Steve(30) keeps spinning around and around, making it very hard for Mallow to get his "best side". Any side but the back side *snicker*

Uh oh, looks like Ana(32) has stalled on the driving range. Guess we'll have to do a drive around ... Get 'em while they're hot! Engine(39) has a Plucked Possum/Spam Scramble special. Not so sure about washing that down with carbonated Cream of Catfish ... Mimi(34) shares a not-so-surprising story of her round-and-round on a ceiling fan. That was during her pre-pole dancing years *wink*

Tuck(28) has invented a mew game: Light fixture cheese-jump. Why not up the degree of difficulty and swing it from the ceiling fan? ... Bee Gee(26) is also up for a little hanging around from the light fixtures. She's discovered Acceptance ... And UBB(20) has decided to do some medicinal experimentation down in the cart barn, since he seems to be spending so much time there. See? That still is very versatile!

How the long drive looks:
1st - Luvbug, 40. Hope Mallow caught that for MewTube!
2nd - Engine, 39. High octane helped, huh?
3rd - Mallow, 35. (Un)Official videographer.

And the cart barn/medical lab will be manned (catted?) by UBB, with very able assistance from Doctor Bee Gee.

Enjoying a nice refreshing
honey/rum toddy with nip!

Hey UBB!
Glad you liked the Sunday review. We were going bananas here over that crazy game. BUT - and this is the 100% truth - mom never gave up on the 'Hawks (unlike some of the "fans" at the game!). She wasn't a bit worried at halftime. She did start getting itchy toward the middle of the 4th quarter, but she still kept a nervous but positive outlook. The Packers were NEVER all that far ahead! And she's seen plenty of late comebacks in football. So. On to the Super Bowl. And note to the Seahawks: This time let's try not to give the fans another near heart attack!

PS - We'll be stocking up on avacados. :-)

1-19 recap
Whispering sweet "I love you's" today,hopefully not to each other. We have love for the popped corn,love for potions,love for tin cans(they are SO much fun). Love is in the air,don't breathe.

Luvbug (39) is whispering lots of things,I don't think love is one of them. I DID hear the popcorn word though!

Mallow (40)is busy brewing some of her dark angel potions. *whew* for a minute there,I was afraid she was going to say love potions. Nah,the good ol vodka kind.

I score a 27 and proceed to kick the can(not the bucket).

Haley (36) is skating on black ice. More fun than thin ice!

Mudcat (35) passes on the potions,and goes straight to brewing what matters-brewski!. Feel the beer love.

Engine (37) claws her way in with flat fish fondue and Possum Porter. Woo-hoo-best way to start any day!

Tuck and Dot (31) wiggle out of hibernation,and come running when they heard there was popcorn and vodka. Its Tuck,he can sniff these things out.

UBB (29) cat got your tongue?? Oh.....its a sore throat from yelling at the TV yesterday,I get it. Did it help?? Couch coaching is a fine non contact sport with no pay and just as little appreciation.

And last,again is BG (37) recovering from her all nighter celebration from yesterday. Little game of kick the man,i mean can, ought to cheer her right up.


1st: ME with a 27
2nd: UBB with 29 and Dot with 31!!! Welcome back!

Losers: Mallow with a 40 and Luvbug with a 39.

Well, as far as "spray on",
all I can spray now is moonbeams & all that Angel-type stuff. But I did usedta stake my claims when I was on earth, out in the yard that is. Why, I dunno if MIKEY has ever even sprayed, mol. Oh, I was a girl who took NO guff and those tomcats usedta really get my goat. Them & the squirrels. I was not above annointing the fenceposts but those squirrels ran along the top of the fence anyway. I hate to even imagine what the skinny-tailed rodents are doin' since I'm not around to make an example of one of 'em every so often. -- A. Mallow

Let's get some practice! 1-18-15
Everyone got your game faces on? We all need plenty of practice. Luvbug(40) climbs out of his rut and cruises around in his sporty cart with the new decals. Can't quite make those out *squints* Hello Kitty? No, that can't be right ... Mallow(47) brings some scary looking blue chips and guacamole. Good looking blue cart with the 'Hawks decals though. Nice touch with the green & blue Skittles infused vodka, too. (what an imagination!)

Sandy(25) is waiting for a soaking later. Don't forget the game umbrella! ... Natural born Seahawk fan UBB(25) is in positive territory today. It's okay UBB, no problem with that "cheese" comment. As long as that cheese is melted, it's okay! ... Mimi(53) is all ready for the family mouse chase. She even gives them a sporting head start! ... And Bee Gee(37) is getting limbered up for the big mouse chase, too. No mention of giving them a head start though.

Here's how the practice went: Luvbug, 40 - Mallow, 47 - Sandy, 25 - UBB, 25 - Mimi, 53 - Bee Gee, 37.

Now, let's all head into the clubhouse and watch the play-offs!

I hear the nursing duties have changed a little. Looks like you guys will be in charge of the home PT from now on. Maybe lay around on the floor in strategic locations so the O.L. will have to step over you all day. Spread out at the end of the bed so she has to keep her knees bent in order to fit. Stuff like that. I could help. If I cold only figure out the bus schedule, I'd be there by Christmas! :-)

Good news. For us anyway. No more single digit temps for awhile. In fact we're moving up to the 40s and 50s by next week. Schizo weather here. No wonder so many people are sick! No one here though. Yet.

Mom is definitely a rescue. We haven't quite been able to trap dad yet, but mom is domesticating nicely.

Hi Uncle Buddy Budd
You were nominated for the honor of COTM when our sign-up page opened so if you accept you will be added to the growing list of cats that will be added to the 2015 calendar.
We don't feel it's fair to have one cat run against another in a 'popularity' contest like certain kitties prefer, especially since the CC population is so low now, so if you don't want to accept the nomination please let us know & we'll remove you from the list. Purrs....

There you go, UBB!
There's a picture of one of the catnip knot toys on my page, second one over. That's a 12 inch slate tile it's sitting on, so you can get a better idea of the size.

The first picture is the NW Moms, the back row is Dolly's, Angel Duchess Sassy's, mine, and Angel Q. Gracie's. Sitting in front are Angel Olivia's and Angel Cherish's. They all met in the middle at the Red Lobster in Federal Way & had fun.

No, I didn't know you & PD Budd are Seattle-ites! Our little Mojo was born in Tulalip, where Dolly's family lives in the summer.

Hi Uncle Buddy Budd
If I took any cats home, I would have to move into the feral house. As for J.C. working, he hasn't hit a lick since we've been here. He was supposed to care for the rats, but they went home. He is all full of himself telling everycat he is the Queen's right paw man. Now look at him chatting up those two cute calicos. Supposed to be draining the pond. Now he's headed for the woods with the calicos. Don't know what I'm to do with that boy. Purrs...Queen Mimi

10-16 recap
Woo-hoo!!!! World food day. Why, we can start with Albania, and eat thru to Xanadu (which isnt a country, but I'm sure it has food). What the heck, we'll make up some countries along the way. They do at the Olympics- did you ever hear of half those places?? Grab a flag from the 8th hole, and we'll claim the CS as a new land.

Luvbug ( 48 ) generously offers his mom's credit card to purchase world goodies for us ALL. He just doesn't know it yet.

I trudge warily up to putt a 52, fearing all that huggy, love the world crap that is just loaded with germs.

Engine ( 55 ) puts in a surprise early arrival with bearclaw peacock popovers ( im still bumming I missed the roasted peasants yesterday) and Hawktoberfest brew. Score! The early cat gets the , um, biggest hangover.

Mudcat ( 59 ) takes an oath to be nice to ferals, as long as they aren't in her yard. I see your toes crossed behind your back.

Tuck and Dot ( 54 ) arrive ready, and I mean READY. They've managed to eat thru 54 countries before sunrise.

Angels (70). Even they cant believe their lucky temp! Mudcat is breathing a sigh of relief her stint in the cart barn will be nixed for today.

BG ( 45 ) comes with conflicting ideas about her leftovers. It's world FOOD day Darn, leftovers are not in any food group.

Mallow ( 52 ) sends her catty off to eat sunscreen and roots while she noms on mouse kabobs. ( note to self, do not volunteer to caddy for Mallow)

Timmy ( 64) claims his mom is feral today. Gosh Timmy, all she did was spill her tea, no need to call her names :)

UBB (64) is slogging and whacking his way to the clubhouse ( its not what it sounds like) in search of more countries to eat.

Winners:Eeks! BG with 45
2nd: Luvbug with 48
3rd: (oh lord, help me) Mallow and me with 52

Losers: Angels with 70 with the help of UBB and Timmy with 64

XOXO ~ S ~

Hello Uncle Buddy Budd
Yes, that is correct! All that is now required for a COTM captaign is to submit ONE daily blog, each day for that month on the CMR page. You can check the CMR page for Carman's catpaign blogs this month.

If you do decide to accept the nomination, just go to the Sign Up Page #272708 and write a blog saying that you do accept. There, you will see that there are already a number of kitties ahead of you, so your catpaign would probably be in mid to late 2015.

P.S. Sorry we do not have any autumn kitty poems. Mommy is a lady of many talents but writing poetry is not one of those talents. We purrfer to "borrow" other people's cute poems.

Chocolate covered ice cream 10-14-14
Maybe even chocolate covered cherries. But insects? No, thank you! We prefer our bugs au natural around here. Still moving, whenever possible. Luvbug(48) is facing his fears by tossing his hairless hat in the air. Could be the start of a new tradition! ... I think we should strand Steve(63) on a desert island with a dessert of chocolate covered stink bugs! ... Wow! Ana B.(60) has really improved her score, and just in time for long drive day!

Mimi(70) is in the mood for grasshoppers today. The hoppy kind or the boozy kind? Keep your pelt on, no one will ruin your bugs with chocolate! ... Engine(64) is buzzing in with a batch of tasty treats and none of them have the slightest resemblance to chocolate covered bugs ... UBB(62) is content to nom mashed mice today. Hold the bugs for GTt ... Tucker(65) is less than impressed with the chocolate bugs, but breathes a sigh of relief to hear this is Cheese Month. Chocolate covered cheese?

I don't think I want to go trick-or-treating in Timmy's(69) neighborhood. Cannons, fireworks, and vampires. Lively place, huh? ... Bee Gee(57) says keep that chocolate away from her bugs! Something about yogurt and meatballs, too. Ick ... Mallow(50) is chowing down on mashed mice and NO chocolate gravy! She's getting ready to fall out her window. Oh, it LOOKS like fall outside her window. Got it.

Chocolate-free long drives"
1st - Mimi, 70. The Claw of Doom? Scary...
2nd - Timmy, 69. In the OLD B/W vampire movies they used chocolate syrup for blood. YUM!
3rd - Tucker, 65. Vintage squirrel schnapps is excellent with cheese!

Bat cave duty is in the capable paws of Luvbug today. Watch out for the hairy spiders in there! Just kidding!

BG would never let anyone lay a paw
~on her little furry spider pals!

Hi Uncle Buddy Budd
Please do talk it over with your siblings and consider a catpaign for COTM. The only requirement now is for you to leave ONE BLOG on the CMR page #46883 each day during your catpaign month. I think you can handle that.

Since you asked so nicely, here's a little poem by Carol L. Riser about autumn:

When the trees their summer spendor
change to radiant red and gold,
When the summer moon turns mellow,
and the nights are getting cold;
When the squirrels hide their acorns,
and the woodchucks disappear;
Then we know that it is autumn,
loveliest season of the year.

We all need the practice 10-12-14
Or I should say, YOU all need the practice! Getting our of shape sitting in the clubhouse by the fire sipping Cat Daniels toddies!

Luvbug(50) is pressing his 4-leaf clover in his golf manual. Excellent! Considering everyone's game could use some more luck ... The froggy Angels(37) arrive early today. Oh wait, that's "foggy". Sorry ... Mimi(61) makes mincemouse out of Mickey with her royal scepter! ... Tucker & Dot(31) are screaming "All right! Everything's white!" *ahem* I HOPE you aren't referring to snow? Yikes!

Bee Gee(46) settles down with some piping hot squirrel gumbo while she waits to find out if the world will beat a path to her door. If it does, boy, is it in for a surprise! ... Mallow(52) makes minced mouse gumbo from the victims of Mimi's Scepter of Wrath, then tees off with a slightly green Barbie head. Found them in the grass? Wonder how THAT happened? ... Timmy(45) and family are nearly cannon fodder at St. Anthony's Festival. Maybe that festival needs a new signal, something safer. How about, oh, say, a church bell!! ... And finally, welcome back (again) to the Budds, who have borrowed a few Barbie heads from Mallow, and UBB(31) is hoping they will be able to remember the way to CC2 from now on. *snicker*

Lots of great, and not-so-great, practice scores: Luvbug, 50 - Angels, 37 - Mimi, 61 - Tucker, 31 - Bee Gee, 46 - Mallow, 52 - Timmy, 45 - UBB, 31.

Now, if we were keeping score, which we aren't, Tuck & UBB would be buying the house a round, and Mallow would be flitting around in the Bat Cave. Pretty darn good scores today. Maybe it's the mouse ball squirrel gumbo. We should make that a permanent item in the clubhouse!

Last minute, late night recap 10-10-14
Looks like PD Budd might have got caught in a traffic jam, so I'll just step up to the plate and throw a touch down! Don't you love mixed metaphors! Like mixed doubles, only wordier. Heh heh....

Aw, Luvbug(48) is such a kittytarian, giving food and water to poor homeless kitties. If there are any homeless near the clubhouse, they are certainly welcome to come in for a snack ... Don't look! It's Steve(40) and his "murse". Man purse? You made that up! ... Mimi(64) arrives with her royal butt protector in tow. That would be J.C. Bet you weren't expecting THAT when you signed up for the job, huh J.C.? ... Frosty UBB(39) cha cha's onto the course for a little salsa golf. Ole!

Tucker(45) gives Dot a mighty butt kick and she bounces onto the links with a shiny mew patent leather clutch for Steve to admire himself in. Please don't encourage him ... Bee Gee(40) is getting her kicks in the conga line, trying to choose from the egg menu. I got it, how about egg nog! ... Timmy(53) hasn't missed a beat since CC crashed. He's still out in the yard up to his asteroids in fall leaves ... Miss Mallow the Mouth(46) is getting ready to spread the word. The password is "crash". And she's feeling optimistic ... And who is bringing up the rear today but record-tying Sandy(35), inviting us all to a last minute catch-up sleep over!

Long drives are not so long today:
1st - Mimi, 64. A little nog heavy are we?
2nd - Timmy, 53. Yes, Timmy, first time for all of us, too!
3rd - Luvbug, 48. Aiming for your padded rear.

And the lucky loser today is *drum roll* UBB, 39! Well, THAT explains why PD didn't show up. Their keyboard is frozen.

~~~~Hot Rod~~~~
Welcome to the grand
re-opening of CC! Ha!

Hi Uncle Buddy Budd
Although we didn't write this poem, we think it's cute and maybe you can use it in your book:

“The Universal Gift”

There is one little “blessing”
that cats might need not send.
But if you live with cats
You will get it
and receive it without end.

You’ll find it floating everywhere.
You’ll wear it wherever you go.
Your closet, couch, and carpet
are “blessed”
and, oh, how it will show!

Even the corners of the curtains
will tell who’s just been there.
It’s the feline form of decorating –
cat hair everywhere!

Have a “gifted” day!

Chocolate Day! 9-23-14
How often does THAT happen? Seems like once a month! Steve, you know anything about the scheduling of Chocolate Days? Don't give me that blank stare.

Luvbug(50) challenges all comers to a rousing game of checkers golf, with or without tiny clubs. Sounds interesting ... Steve(66) focuses all his energy on growing out his winter fur. So, considering the energy output involved, he MIGHT have baby fuzz by November ... Ana(40) has made the scientific determination that TODAY is the first day of fall ... Mimi(62) reports her mom has the sickies. Thank goodness it's not the "stickies" as earlier reported by Bee Gee! ... UBB(41) says the "restless one" GTt gets relief by being let out the door in the morning. Maybe Luvbug could suggest that to his Gma? I'm picturing that.

Our resident "doggie defender" Tucker(36) seems to be all a-chatter and in need of a quick Cat Daniels ... Oh Timmy(46), good point. I hope that RLS isn't catching! Imagine us all out on the links trying to tee up while our legs are heading in different directions! (Anybody remember Acme Earthquake Pills on Road Runner?) ... Bee Gee(63) is celebrating the "stickies" - sticky temps, and sticky chocolate. Blame Steve, who else? ... Mallow(57) has decided to take her free car to the innergizer and get her fur fluffed and folded while she waits. They toss in a halo shine for free!

And the votes are in:
1st - Steve, 66. Steve? Huh.
2nd - Bee Gee, 63. Sticky fingers.
3rd - Mimi, 62. Mom can have your chocolate, it helps the sickies!

Cart barn honors go to Tucker and his dog. I think she'll be a great help out there. Doing what I'm not sure. But then, with dogs, no one is ever sure.

Our dogs are definitely no help. Ever.

9.19.14 ~~ Pirates Take Over Long Drive Day
A-hoy, ye buckies or buddies...
[Please note: no cat selected the butterscotch pudding— food fight in the parking lot after the game!]

We start today with 2 tied miserable scores of 48. Tuck, who was not late on board yet claimed that he was. And, of course, it was his mom’s fault. He walks the plank for fibbing with a short drive. And Luvbug hit a poor 48 also and so he can join him on the plank. You pirates have to stick together. Swords out pirates and over they go!!
Fine start to Pirate Day, hey?
We’ll get the other low scores over right now. Steve, wearing his famous black eye patch scores 46. Purrhaps you should lose the patch, Dude? There’s the plank. Take Ana (40) with you. Splash!
The big brrr goes to UBB and his squawking parrot with 37. Fresh parrot is NOT on the menu today. Just in case BG gets any ideas, Polly flies off into the trees to watch Ole’ Toothy in his little lake. Call Captain Hook anyone?

UBB will be in the barn drying out all the wet carts that couldn’t float. No problem, Bee Gee with that 58. You may like the menu from Engine; she’s hit hot (fat) number of 63. Brought us a pot of Balsamic Bear stew and Scalloped Squirrels. No need to kill the parrot. Not sure about that keg of ‘drink’ you stowed aboard, N-Gin...
Give Timmy 53) a helping paw aboard. His mom warned him about drinking the Capt’n morgan. Really? It’s safer than whatever is sloshing in that keg.
~~ And now make way for our future Queen and Cat of October, mimi, with the winning score of 64. Take your place at the head of the food line, where you can start the song. Does is go?...”A hundred bottles of beer...”
Our own real Angel mallow flies over in her flashy role as the Sea Hag Road Warrior and whacks a decent 59. She keeps shouting “scurvy barnacles.” Jeesh! Or as Timmy would say, “Arrgghh!”

Ho-ho-ho and a Bottle of Rum for each winner today:
1st mimi – 64 –practicing your queen walk yet?
2nd- N-Gin – 63 – You try your keg first!
3rd – 59 for The flying Sea Hag herself, A. mallow

Happily submitted by PD Budd. Sorry about the small ‘m”s today. I forgot to put the batteries in the keyboard where the big “m” is kept.
Glad to be back!

This will be tricky 7-25-14
I'll try to flip back and forth from CC to CC2 and get all the golf blogs. If I mess this up do NOT blame ME! Heck, I'm trying to celebrate a birthday party, for crying out loud! Give me a break!

Looks like, hmm, maybe Tucker actually arrived, based on his sign-in time at the scorer's table. He drops a 48 while waving his garlic charms to drive away the evilies .... Next is Mimi(68) by a wrinkling nose, at all the garlic mom imbues everything with. Whew! .... After much effort Ana was able to crash the CC defenses and post her 62 .... Next through the great CC wall is Steve(55) at the speed limit, leaving B'day greetings for the two birthday girls today, Ziggy & Dolly. Aren't they cute?

Engine(68) arrives in the Party Porsche (quite an upgrade, eh?) with plenty of celebration fixin's, not the least of which, a keg of Heinecat .... UBB(52) couldn't seem to find anybody to play with this morning, but he left his score anyway. PD is starting the slow panic one feels when one thinks one might be locked in the library with the *whispers* "library lady" .... Bee Gee(53) arrives wondering if this is finally the great CC Apocalypse we've all heard so much about. Maybe the CC powers were scared off by the garlic. THAT explains a LOT! 'Nuff said there (She also forgot to leave her score but since I live here I think I have that covered. *snicker* .... Finally Mallow(57) kicks ol' CC in the rear and darned if the thing doesn't start working. With only a few minor glitches.

Okay, quickie score roundup so mom can get back to a busy day doing nothing!

1st - Tie, Mimi & Engine 68. Don't let Mimi's mom and her garlic shaker near those cricket cream puffs.
2nd - Ana, 62. Persistence pays!
3rd - Mallow, 57. You had blogs from the 23rd? Ours went back to the 12th!

Cart duty is in the capable paws of - no one! It's off the the double party! Look out, birthday cake, here we come!

And that does NOT mean toss him into the hazard with Ol' Toothy and see how fast he can walk on water! :-) I think it would be a real friendly gesture if we all TRIED to be nice for at least the rest of the week.

Anybody catch any rats yet? 7-22-2014
I think the little rodents are all kicked back in the holes on the greens! If any of us ever made a shot we'd find out. *smirk*

From deepest south Amherst some angels leave us a 65 .... Engine keeps running over the same 70 every day. I would NOT want that jersey number! She's packed Starfish Sammies with Muskrat Mustard and feather-free Cardinal Chips. Emergency! The Kegolator is down! .... Oh *whew* Mimi(71) to the rescue with a cart full of Old Rat's Breath, courtesy of catty J.C. and his superior skill at getting the little rats to give up the breath.

Tucker is getting into rat-catcher day, sticking his paw down the hole and rooting around. He comes up with 67! From one hole?? Meanwhile catty Dot goes on a grub run .... Darn Bee Gee(68) is full of grumblin' and groanin' about storms on the way. Bad day at Catty Shack Rock. Give that girl a shot of Old Rat's Breath .... Little Stevie(71) is just chillin' in his little hammock, waiting for a little push. Bee Gee? This one's for you.

UBB is seeing double with 72/72. Hangover day was yesterday! He hoists his double shot of Old Rat's Breath in honor of Mimi's fine rat ranch and sends his catty GracieTt off for more "ranch" dip! .... Timmy(83) is inquiring about Ol' Toothy's breath! Well really, who's gonna get close enough to notice? Brush his teeth? I think whoever made that suggestion should also volunteer! .... Oh wait, wait! Mallow(64) can jump right in there and lay a toothbrush on Ol' Toothy's nippers! She can borrow some of Mikey's foaming zit wash! And when you make it back out we'll all hail the Gator Whisperer.

Spooner Scores for Tuesday:
1st - This has GOT to be Timmy with that awesome 83!
2nd - UBB seeing double with 72/72.
3rd - A tie! Steve & Mimi, 71. Hammocks, umbrellas, and rats. Yup - oh my....

And the lucky loser today, that would beee .... Mallow. Must be your lucky day. Gator rasslin' AND cart barn, all in one day. It just don't get any better'n that! Hahaa!

~I do believe Ol' Toothy
has lovely minty fresh breath!
