How We Met

Had lost my beloved Burmese and Ocicat within 6 months and checked Cat Fancy magazine and found a breeder not far away. Fell in love with little Gynko and his grandmother Etoile. Both cats are just the best.

Bivouac of the Dead by Theodore O'Hara

The muffled drum's sad roll has beat
The soldier's last tattoo;
No more on Life's parade shall meet
That brave and fallen few.
On fame's eternal camping ground
Their silent tents to spread,
And glory guards, with solemn round
The bivouac of the dead.

Hey Gynk!
Ohhh a barn? That must be soo much fun! What do you do in there? It must be nice to live in the country. I was born in the country, but never enjoyed it because I never was outside and then I moved here with my mom at 7 weeks. My name Silest is a different spelling for the name Celeste, which means Heaven sent. Mom named me that because thats exactly what she thought I was tehe she's so silly! You're name is also very different. What does it mean and how did you get it? And yes, we will definatly put pictures of it up. Today was gloomy again, much more chilly than yesterday. It's more of the wind. The sun didn't even come out all day and the chilled air meant no open window watching for me which I love so much. Last night mom bought me a laser! Boy was it fun! I was going crazy chasing it all around the house trying to jump up doors and climb walls. I was going so crazy mommy became worried and made me stop because I was panting like a dog. Now whenever I hear the clicking noise it make I run right to mom as if it was a bag of treats! MOL! Well Mommy is going away friday so we won't be blogging again till saturday evening. I hope your friday is very enjoyable! Sweetdreams

A kitty stroller? How awsome! We saw one of them in a catalog and my mom was so fascinated by it that she almost bought it but wasn't sure if it was truelly secure and changed her mind. I love climbing on the railing of my balcony too, sometimes even the roof. I just love the freedom I feel when I can just look over and see the world. I live in the city but our part of the city is higher up on the mountain so we can see all these little houses and even the train from a distance. Mom was telling me about how pretty it is to see when everyone decorates for christmas and the nightime hits. I can't wait for my first Thanksgiving and Christmas! It's going to be a blast! Mom is worried I might break bulbs and stuff though tehe(:
Here's a vote

November 15: America Recycles Day promotes the social, environmental and economic benefits of recycling & encourages people to create a better natural environment.

WHAT’S IN OUR TRASH......National averages show:
38.1% Paper -12.1% Yard Trimmings -7.8% Metals -5.5% Glass 10.5% Plastic-10.9% Food Waste-9.8%Other-5.3% Wood Waste

<<..•.¸¸•´¯`•.¸¸•Recycling Statistics¸.•´¯`•¸¸.•..>>
The 2009 EPA national recycling figures for 243 million tons of trash generated were:
•82 million tons composted/recycled for 33.8% recovery rate
•29 million tons of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW)combusted for energy recovery
•74% of office-type paper recovered
•60% of yard trimmings recovered
•34.5% of metals recycled
•7 million tons of metals recycled reduced greenhouse gas emissions at equivalent of removing 5 million cars from road for one yr
•Approx 9,000 community curbside recycling programs exist in US, increase over reported 2002 figure of 8,875
•Approx 3,000 community composting programs exist - decrease from 2002 figure of 3,227 programs

1. Every yr nearly 900,000,000 trees are cut down to provide raw materials for American paper and pulp mills.

2. Every yr US generates around 14 million tons of food waste which is 106 pounds of food waste per person, 570,000 tons of this is composted for a 4.1% recovery rate. The rest, or 13.4 million tons is incinerated or landfilled and occupies 6.3 million cubic yards of landfilled Municipal Solid Waste.

3. US throw away about 28 billion bottles & jars every yr.
4. US make more than 200 million tons of garbage each yr.
5. It takes a 15-yr old tree to produce 700 grocery bags.
6. Disposable diapers last centuries in landfills. An average baby will go through 8,000 diapers.

7. Each yr American throw away 25,000,000,000 Styrofoam cups. Even 500 years from now, the foam coffee cup you used this morning will be sitting in a landfill.

8. Most of the plastic recycled is #1 PETE soda bottles and #2 HDPE milk bottles. Most of the #3 through 7 plastics are not easily recyclable.

9. Corrugated boxes produced in the U.S contain 37% recycled content and by tonnage have a highest average 73% recovery rate or 21.6 million tons.

10. When 62.8% of the 102 billion aluminum cans are recycled, the energy savings can light a city the size of Pittsburgh for ten years.

Hello Again!
Love your name, How did you get it?
So how has you're week been going so far? Today there was no sun at all, about mid 60's so atleast the window was open for me to sit on and watch the cars go by and the people outside. Even though we do have a yard, mom doesn't let me go outside because she's scared I'll run away or get lost or hurt. The only time I get to go outside is when I go on the upstairs balcany because it's high up and has no stairs, so now way of getting down. I see you're an outdoors kitty though, you take such beautiful photos. Here's another vote(:
puurrs to you!

Happy St. Patricks Day!
St. Patrick's Day is here you see. We'll pick some shamrocks, one, two, three. We'll count the leaves and look them over, and maybe find a four-leafed clover. I'll sew green buttons on my vest, green for St. Patrick is the best.
I'll wear a green hat very high, and dance a jig--at least I'll try! ~Have a wonderful St. Patrick's Day! Purrs, Lynx~

Hey Gynko! How are you today? Mommy got me a pumpkin shirt for Halloween today and I was not amused when she put it on me! Only 29 days until Halloween! Are you doing anything special? Were having a couple of our friends over for chili and treats, I can't wait! Mommy and I are going to put up a Halloween village by the front door tomorrow so that means more boxes to play in!

Counting Our Blessings Tonight
Oh my goodness I just had the most terrifying experiance of my whole kitty life. Just about 30 minutes ago, a huge funnel cloud touched down and turned into a tornado 3 miles away from our house! Mommy grabbed me and the little one and rushed us downstairs to duck and cover. Thank goodness it didn't hit our house, it was so close though! Some of our friends houses got damaged in the tornado, but were all good. No injuries or anything to serious. You can check out a picture on my page, mommy took one right before it picked up speed. Here is a vote for you, we will be counting our blessings tonight! Bigg Purrs to ya! >^..^<

Hey Gynko
Yesterday we had a visitor! To my surprise when i was looking out the window I saw a black and white cat on our deck, and we were playing the stare off game. Mommy wouldn't let me go out and say hello, so I watched him from the safety of my home. Probably a good thing because he didn't look to friendly! He brought a dead bird on our deck, so dad shooed him off then things were back to normal. Dad got rid of the bird, and we haven't seen him since. I hope all is going well with you, Bigg Purrs to ya! >^..^<

How are you today Gynko?
We know all about those home improvements. Mommy and daddy took out a wall separating the kitchen from the living room, and it was a mess! I hope your new addition in the basement goes over well. It rained here hard too. Thunder, lighting, and pouring rain. It didn't rain too long, but Mommy's very thankful for the rain because it's been so dry here in Colorado.

Thank you for adding me to your Neko home. That was a very sweet welcome. I added you and Etoile to my home:) "Yoo-ko-so" (Welcome) to my home! I love your name as well as Ginkgo trees. It's so beautiful when they change their color of the leaves into beautiful gold in the fall. My mom remembers when she walked along the Ginkgo colonnade in Tokyo, Japan. She said it was very romantic. (She was on her date!) I wish a happy Monday to you and your family. "Matane!" (See/Talk to you soon!) Hugs and kisses, Artemis P.S.

Kitty Poem for Gynko
Looks like you enjoy fireplaces too! So warm and cozy... Here is a nice poem I'd like to share with you~ Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray this cushy life to keep.
I pray for toys that look like mice, And sofa cushions, soft and nice. I pray for gourmet kitty snacks, And someone nice to scratch my back, For windowsills all warm and bright, For shadows to explore at night. I pray I'll always stay real cool and keep the secret feline rule - To NEVER tell a human that the world is really ruled by CATS!~ Enjoy your day! Bigg Purrs to ya! >^..^<

How was your 4th of July? My ears are still ringing from all the fireworks last night! However I'm happy to say I got through it in one piece. Mommy and the family had lots of BBQ and went up on the roof to watch the Parker fireworks show, then went to pop some of there own with some friends. Little one almost fell off the roof trying to get back down, but daddy was holding her thank goodness. Even in all of that excitement and scare, I have to admit it was a fun night for all! I can't wait to see what next year will bring! Hope you all had a fun, safe 4th of July, here is a vote, Bigg Purrs to ya! >^..^<

The last update on Ebbonny was in the afternoon of yesterday on his, Rhoamin's and the Catpaign sites. HE is doing ok but still hasn't eaten since Thursday. They want mom to give him certain bland foods which is mostly people food and he doesn't eat hardly any people food. They also have Science Diet listed so mom's going to go buy some of that this morning. We haven't seen him drink water yet neither but he has went pee a few times. He is on three different medications right now. Mom said she'll be talking to Dr. Ron today as well to go over his blood tests and all. Awhile after Ebbonny came home then Sassee decided to go over to check him out and as she started walking towards him , he let out a couple BIG HISSES at her so she immediately left. Mom thought it was funny cuz she tormented Ebbonny and Pappoose to where she has them both scared to death of her. Sassee also torments Jazpyr but he puts up with her most of the time. Ebbonny slept good all night on the window bed then later in the wee mornings he got on the cat condo tree. This morning dad told mom that Sassee jumped up on the cat condo and Ebbonny did the HISSING thing at her again and she took off into the bedroom. Boy, are we glad she's finally being put in her place. The rest of us are doing fine xcept we want out in the cattery but mom says not now as she doesn't want Ebby jumping that much yet so we say "Why not unblock the upstairs then so we can at least go up there?" and mom said she doesn't want Ebby to go up there and hide.
