Hi! My name is Trouble

I am an American Shorthair from Tinley Park, IL

My favorite tricks and treats are: Anything cat food related. I admit, I'm a tubbo.

Where I hang out: On "my" recliner or on the couch.

My favorite grubs: Any cat food - doesn't matter. No people food - I don't like it.

Delightful April sun
(¯`'•. ¸.(¯`v´¯)¸. •'´¯)
"An altered look about the hills;
A Tyrian light the village fills;
A wider sunrise in the dawn;
A deeper twilight on the lawn;
A print of a vermilion foot;
A purple finger on the slope;
A flippant fly upon the pane;
A spider at his trade again;
An added strut in chanticleer;
A flower expected everywhere ..."

Longfellow's April Day ... enjoy your week!!

•••When the warm sun, that brings
Seed-time and harvest, has returned again,
'T is sweet to visit the still wood, where springs
•••The first flower of the plain.

•••I love the season well,
When forest glades are teeming with bright forms,
Nor dark and many-folded clouds foretell
•••The coming-on of storms.

•••From the earth's loosened mould
The sapling draws its sustenance, and thrives;
Though stricken to the heart with winter's cold,
•••The drooping tree revives.

•••The softly-warbled song
Comes from the pleasant woods, and colored wings
Glance quick in the bright sun, that moves along
•••The forest openings.

•••When the bright sunset fills
The silver woods with light, the green slope throws
Its shadows in the hollows of the hills,
•••And wide the upland glows.

•••And when the eve is born,
In the blue lake the sky, o'er-reaching far,
Is hollowed out, and the moon dips her horn,
•••And twinkles many a star.

•••Inverted in the tide
Stand the gray rocks, and trembling shadows throw,
And the fair trees look over, side by side,
•••And see themselves below.

•••Sweet April! many a thought
Is wedded unto thee, as hearts are wed;
Nor shall they fail, till, to its autumn brought,
•••Life's golden fruit is shed.

Dear cc member,
My cat whitiker has been making my family happy for almost 9 years. Ive been preparing for his Birthday on March 22 for weeks, and have finally decided to get him a few packages of his favorite treats, along with build him a collar with all of his achievements stamped onto it. It is coming along nicely, but i believe it would be amazing if my dream for him could come true and he could become the cat of the day on march 22 of 2012. it would be awesome if one of his achievements could be an honorary, earned cat of the day badge. It might just help him to realize just how awesome he really is. So please vote for this furry, 17, going to be 18 year old manx, before his birthday, so it could truly be his special day on march 22nd, so vote for him on march 21. Thank you :)

Come visit me, Whitiker (please vote for me on march 21 for bday).

Hi again
Wow! That is purrty cold!!!!! I love FL. As you can see from my photo, I sit by the pool (with all my sisters and brothers). It was in the low 70s today. Glad you liked my tennis outfit. I have a section of my clothes in my mom's closet. I'm curled up in my blankie now because it's in the low 50s, and that's cold for us!!

Hi Maggie!
Troublesome here. I'm so glad to hear your mom rescues cats. My mom does her best too. Right now it's snowing here - my first real snow! Interesting. Don't know if I want to go out on the balcony in it or not. When mom comes home, I may investigate. Not sure yet. Will definitely hibernate tonight - that's why I'm such a "tubbo." After I devour all the food I can, I go under blankets for a well deserved snooze.

Vote I did.



Come visit me, Trouble & Gracie Mae.

Hi Trouble!
hi honey! It's me Maggie. I am so impressed by the way you sit like that! You know mom tells me that a long time ago she had a female kitty named Trouble. Mom rescued her from under a car in the city. She was starving and sick.She grew up to be a real though city kitty and when we moved into a country home, she thought she was a dog and would chase dogs off the property!!!Oh fear!!
Leaving you a vote,
Kitty hugs,

A: If you take the first letter and place it at the end of the word, then spell the word backwards, it will be the same word.
Palindrome-a word, phrase, verse or sentence that reads the same backward or forward.

Thank you all
Thank you all for your kind welcome blogs. I think it's great we cats have our own channel. Also, thank you for your votes. This is fun! Yes, I am a "tubbo" but you can sure tell I enjoy my food. My sister on the other hand is Ms. Dainty when she eats and then she wonders why the bowls are empty.

Right now my big thing is hibernating. You see, this is my 1st winter in cold weather. You all are actually seeing a native Las Vegan and we are rare indeed. So, most of my time is spent under a blanket on the couch and is it cozy!

Later all,
