Happy Halloween!

We were going to try to post a Halloween picture, but mama gotted home too late and had to do her jobbie thing first, so she didn't get to spend time on it. The bean doctor said she was doing good, and come back in six months. She went to get a coffee before she walked home. She said it was very very cold out, and she only saw 2 halloweeners. One was a cute little one (maybe 3 years old) in a chicken costume. That was at the clinic.

So, Happy Halloween, efurryone,
hope you have a bootiful time tonight!

Monday again

Hello! What a nice day today. The sun was shining, the window was warm to nap in, and mama had hamm for lunch (and she shared). Mr. Squirrel and his lady and the Chitterer were all out in the back yard. They are still a little mad about the fire, and for that matter, so am I.

When that noise starts, I HIDE. I can't help it. It hurts my ears and scares me, so mama can never rescue me. I know I should run to her, but I can't help it. Scary noises mean HIDE.

No calls from that accounting place, so no job there. Mama has to go to her doctor appointment tomorrow afternoon. She made it in the late afternoon, in hopes that she would have a job by now, and wouldn't have to miss much work.

I hear there is chicken for dinner tonight. Yummm!

love, purrs, headbumpies,

Help! Fire!!

That's right. You heard me. Fire!! The fire alarm went off last night and it was very loud. I hid under the bed and wouldn't come out till this morning! We had smoke and yucky smells and efurrything. Mama has only been able to rescue one cat effer. We all take off and hide when that loud noise goes off. I jumped down from mama's lap and ran! It was a bad kitchen fire on our floor a couple of apartments away! When mama opened the door, the hall was filled with smoke and she had to leave. A couple of people got their little kitties out, but the rest of us hid. She said coming back she felt like she had smoked a pack of cigarrettes all at once. Blaghh! I'm glad I stayed in! She was coughing for a while!

So much for a quiet weekend! Hope the rest is a lot better.

love and purrs and headbumpies to effuryone!

A quiet day...but very nice!

Ooh, what a day. Mama shared hamm at lunch (she called it devil hamm, but I didn't think it was devil at all-it was good!). Then this afternoon I gotted to brush me, and mama helped. That and a bunch of nappies has been my day. Mama was reading her book. And now we are here.

Hope efurryone is having a nice weekend. Those that need purrayers, you are on our list. And headbumpies and purrs to all.

Silly Mama

Mama did a silly today. She put my octopus on top of my head! Oh, am I grateful she didn't get a picture of that! I left it there until I got up and turned around. Then the octopus fell off. Boy, mama is silly!

Just a nice day at home, cept for that. Mama read a lot and I nappied a lot. No turkey sammich or hamm sammich. Yet. But some nice scritchies!

No news on jobbies or anything good. *kittysigh*

Love, purrs and headbumpies to efurryone.


October 26, 2006

And the Beat Goes On

Mama found another jobbie to apply to today that is really close to home. Maybe this one?? Who knows. Nice day for snuggling and nappies, and mama shared some of her turkey sammich at lunch.

I don't know. A sleepy lazy day for me. Hope efurry one is okay. Blogger let me post yesterday and then kicked me off, so I have to catch up on some of the news.

Love, purrs and headbumpies to efurry one,

October 25, 2006

And the news for Wednesday

It wasn't too bad. That's what mama said when she got home. She had to take 3 tests, and didn't do really bad at all. She knows she has at least one error on the last one, and even told the ladybean about it. Hope that was good. If they contact her next Monday for a second interview, she knows she will have the job. It was more accounting and data entry than what she is used to, but she said that is how she started out a long time ago.

Mama stopped for pumpkin spice latte, and at Target to pick up some stuff. Mostly paper stuff, like paper plates and paper towels. Not a whole lot. Then she camed home and we snuggled for a while. I went into the bedroom and curled up and when mama camed in I didn't even wake up. She sat down at the computer to do her jobbie searchs, and I had a bad dream. I don't even remember it now, but I know I woked up and I was hissing! Mama told me it was okay, and talked to me in that soft voice she uses sometimes, and I was okay. Whew! Thanks for being here, mama!

That's how our day was. Or hers, anyway. I just played with my octopus and nappied this afternoon. The sun was out, and I even talked to Mr. Squirrel and Chitterer. They are sure busy this time of year!

Wonder what my bad dream was. Oh, well. It wasn't real!

Lots of love, purrs and scritchies and headbumpies, efurry one!


October 24, 2006

And another interview tomorrow

Yup. Another interview tomorrow afternoon for mama. This one might be a bit of a stretch for her. It's for an administrative accounting assistant position. She says it's worth a try. It's cool today, but at least the sun was out for a while. Mr. Squirrel was not very talkative today. He was running around a lot.

I should mention something about Mr. Squirrel. He is quite spoiled here. He gets a constant supply of peanuts in the shell from some of the beans here. That is why he has been here so long. He is one lucky squirrel!

Nothing much else. I got to curl up on mama for a while this afternoon. She hasn't done the all over scritchies today, at least yet. Just head scritchies. That's okay. Wasn't in the mood anyway. Maybe tonight.

Purrayers for those who are ill or having operations or need any assistance, blessings on efurryone, and of course, purrrs and headbumpies to efurry one, too.


October 23, 2006

Monday, and it's COLD out there....

The wind chill today was something else! My mama's interview was right by the Mississippi River and she said it felt even colder there. I stayed snuggled inside, and napping in a big grey ball of fur! Mr. Squirrel said it was very cold, too. Time for winter, he said. NOOOOOOOOO! Not yet!!!!!!!!!!!

Mama had to take three tests for the jobbie. The first two were very easy for her. The third was not good, she said. Uh-oh. She also said the ladybean in HR remembered her from last time. And mama remembered to ask important questions. They will make a decision next week. Paws crossed.

When mama camed home she did scritchies all over me. Ooh, did that feel goooood.

Thanks everyone for your kind thoughts and purrayers for my mama's interview.

Love, purrs, and headbumpies,


October 22, 2006

Sunday, Sunday

I don't know what happened yesterday. We signed on, we posted, we went to Derby's blog, and got cut off. We signed on again, went to Derby's blog, posted a comment and then were dumped from blogger the rest of the evening. So no catching up on friends or anything. Boo! Hisssssst! Hope everyone had fun at the party. We were thinking of you.

Tomorrow is the big interview. Mama will be gone most of the afternoon.

Then she will be home to snuggle.

That's it.

Love and purrs and gentle headbutts,

Saturday Snuggles

Sorry we weren't here yesterday. When mama gotted home from her meeting and grocery shopping, we snuggled and fell asleep for a while, then mama didn't want to turn the puter on. We are okay. Just playing snuggles.

I am going to Derby's party for a while, then I am going to catch up on news here in the cat blogosphere. Have a nice weekend, efurry one. And happy Gotcha and Purrthday all October kitties!

love, purrs and headbumpies,

October 19, 2006


Not that sunny here today, and not that warm. Oh, well, lots of nappies. This afternoon somebody knocked on our door and asked if mama was the owner of a bike that was in the hall. She said no, and the teen that visits across the hall came out and it was his. He was told not to leave his bike in the hall. His dad came out and started screaming and using bad words. If I had been the teen I would have been furry embarrassed cause of my dad. Whew! Some example for your child! Mama does not have anything to do with this neighbor as she has been "verbally assaulted" by him.

Mama has to go to the WorkForce Center tomorrow afternoon for her rescheduled meeting about unemployment, and then she is going grocery shopping (thanks, Meowers from Missouri).

She applied at another bank (5th time there) today.

It's supposed to be sunny TOMORROW and then yucky this weekend. Oh, well, snuggle time!
I like the term livecatblanket that the Meowers use.

Love, purrs and headbumpies,

October 18, 2006

Wednesday News

Okay, the big bank that mama applied to called to say they were going to consider other people for that jobbie. However. However, they asked if she would be interested in applying for another jobbie there, and mentioned another one. She said, of course, yes, she would be interested, she did something like that before, so she has an interview Monday afternoon! Yay!! And. And it's more money!! I hope she gets it. Oh, please, oh please. Hamm pizza!!

Other than that, it has been cloudy today, and I have been sleeping alot. The weatherbean said that it would be sunny tomorrow, and I can't wait. Bring on the nappies in the sun!!!

Love, headbumpies and purrs,

October 17, 2006

Another dreary day...

Cloudy and gloomy today. Lots of nappies. Did see Mr. Squirrel today. He wasn't real chipper either. Spossed to rain tomorrow. Gloom, gloom.

Mama applied for a couple more jobbies today. No news from any jobbies. She's feeling better, but still has her cold. Not as annoying as before. To me.



October 16, 2006

Dark and Dreary Monday

I'm not going to be here very long. Mama has just spent 2 and a half hours jobbie hunting. She applied at a bank and an auditing and financial services company. Whew. Loooong application process. The bank is one she applied to at the beginning of the summer. It's an administrative specialist jobbie. Sounds important! But she is tired out, now.

Anyway, not too bad with the temps today, but it was dark and gloomy all day. I didn't even bother sitting in the window most of the day, so I didn't see Mr. Squirrel or any birdies.

Mama is doing better with her cold. Her voice gets a little funny sometimes, and she's still honking her nose, but not as much.

That's it. We are going to check in on some of our friends and then mama is going to make dinner. Wonder what we're having.....

Love, purrs and headbumpies,

October 15, 2006

I'm Baaack!

My mama still has a cold, but she is doing a lot better, so she is letting me post today. Yeah!! I missed efurry one! It's warmer today, too, in the upper 50's, so the sun in the window feels nice. Mama has had chickie soup and split pea with hammm soup, and she shared.

I have been doing my nice nursie duties, and I guess it's been helping. She did stop doing a lot of loud sneezies. She applied for several jobbies today, and is drinking something warm for her throat that hurties.

So, I am going to be working on the blog with her today to update some of the linkies, and catch up with the news. If I find something interesting, I will add it to here.

Purrs and headbumpies to all,

P.S. Happy All Cat's Day!!!

October 12, 2006

We Interrupt Our Program....

We are taking a little break, cause mama is sick. She is sneezy (it's LOUD), and honking her nose (it's LOUD, too), she's talking funny, and says she needs her nursie (me).

And isn't it Bi-colored Thursday?? Jeepers! I missed Tummy Tuesday, too.

Gotta take care of mama and make sure she's warm. Back soon.


October 11, 2006

The Interview

Does this title seem familiar? Mama goes on a lot of these. But today, yes, she had her interview. The temperature dropped A LOT, so she had to dig her winter coat out! After she gotted her interview she walked several blocks in the cold and stopped for (what else) a pumpkin spice latte, then ran a couple of errands. As she left the drugstore (pantihose and hair coloring, two necessities around mama) she crossed the street and gotted right on a bus. There was some flurries (that's tiny snowflakes), but they didn't even make the ground white. So she gotted home and is all safe and warm here. Yeah!

So I nappied today and I played with my octopus and I haven't even sat on mama yet today! Oh, wait. Yes I did! She petted me. I remember!

Silly me.

Mama is here tomorrow all day! Yeah! She'll find out about this jobbie by next week.

Purrs and headbumpies to all.


October 10, 2006

What day is this?

Ok, I know, it's Tuesday. That means mama wented to the clinic. They still haven't straightened out her insurants, but they said it would take another week or so. Hmm. It was supposed to be by October 1. Anyway, she still got some medicines, and a flu shot (ow!) and made a doctor's appointment for October 31. If the insurants is still a mess, she will cancel. So that's today. Tomorrow is the interview downtown and it is supposed to be cold and rainy/snowy. Yuck. Friday morning she has to go to the WorkForce Center and sit through a two hour program on how to look for jobbies and stuff. Blaagh!

Last night she shared her hamburger. Wonder what we will have this evening?? She has to get out a warm coat for tomorrow, and make sure she's ready for the interview. And I guess I'm going to be lonely, but only for a few nappies. I'll make do. *sniff*


p.s. Rainbow Bridge information: Butterscotch, of A Cat's Life has passed over the Rainbow Bridge this afternoon. Farewell, sweet Butterscotch.

October 9, 2006


My mama has an interview Wednesday! A job she applied for last month. Yeah! So tomorrow she goes to the clinic and Wednesday she goes for her interview. And they are still interviewing at her old jobbie for another position, and they asked her to sign a paper saying she was still interested. Humm. Could mean absolutely nothing.

Life is getting interesting again. However, Wednesday it it going to be furry cold here, and I might want mama to stay home and snuggle.... Nope, we need the jobbie more.

All these interviews and nobody ever hires her! Jeepers. Anyway, we are going jobbie hunting now and will be back later, maybe. Oh, and mama did share her chickies last night! Yummy!!


p.s. Check out Sir Sidney's brother, Emperor Nero's new blog! Just in time for Midnight Monday!

October 8, 2006


Nother sleepy day. Mama has been jobbie searching. She applied for some three jobs. One is with the college that let her go. Huh. Anyway, nothing else to report. Mama is gonna share her chickies tonight (or else). Hope efurryone is having a good weekend. I'm gonna go back to nappies.....

Love and purrs,

The "Castle"

This is the Van Deusen Mansion, or part of it. It is for sale, and because of that, it is being called a "Castle", but it really isn't. Castles are much bigger. And older. This was build in 1892 in the Richardson "Romanesque chateauesque" style and originally owned by George W. Van Deusen and his family. He was a wealthy businessman.

Maybe she can take more pictures when mama goes back to the clinic on Tuesday. There is a covered place where carriages can drive up and passengers get out and not get rained or snowed on. There is a modern addition which is boring.

There they are. Finally mama's pictures uploaded! It is nice and warm today, and I have been sitting in the window, okay, napping in the window most of this afternoon. I had to remind mama once again to fill my water dish. Help these days. Hard to keep trained.

Time to catch up on all the other gorgeous kitties! Hope your weekend is going well. Gentle headbumpies and purrs to all, of course, and purrayers for those who need them.


October 6, 2006

Some Pictures, Finally

Well, this is one of the mansions on mama's walk to the clinic yesterday. Stuff is still green, and you can almost make out the red flowers in front of the house.

These are purty flowers in front of a very old partment building next to the mansion. They grow purty flowers all summer and take really good care of them.

Thes are more purty flowers in front of another historic partment building. It is next door, and owned by the same company. These partment buildings were build in the 1930's, we think.

These are all blogger would let me upload. Next time I will try to upload the mansion-castle. It took a LONG time just to get these up.

Nothing else happening today. Mama did NOT have hamm or turkey for lunch, but oh, well. No phone calls, nothing. The good news, however, is my red octopus and my pink heart are back! They appeared on my footiestool last night. I think maybe they missed me or something.

Hope efurryone is doing okay. Purrayers, gentle headbumpies and purrs to all who need them.


October 5, 2006

Are you ready for some pictures??

We have pictures and we are trying to get blogger to show them. Its not cooperating. So! We will try again later. Anyway, mama took pictures on her way to the clinic this morning. Of an old mansion with some flowers (still, even with frost last night!), and some pretty flowers by a couple of partment buildings, and a place called the Van Deusen Mansion, or Castle (its for sale now, and they are calling it a castle, but it really isn't).

She wented to the clinic to pick up her meds and then a friend treated her to breakfast (McDonalds, but still it was eating out), then she gotted a haircut to look nice for interviews not over the phone, and then she boughted groceries. And, WE HAVE HAMM! And ,WE HAVE TURKEY! YEAH!!!!

Mama said to say she has other foods, but those are the important ones for me!

Now my pink heart wented away again, and my octopus is still gone. But I found one of my mousies I forgot about.

Hope to do the pictures soon! We tried several times but blogger wouldn't do anything for us.
**BIG kitty sigh**

Love to you all,


October 4, 2006

Wednesday Update

No new jobbies for mama. *Kitty Sigh* No phone calls. Nothing. She didn't go to the clinic for her medicines. She is going tomorrow morning. Then she is going to go with a friend for coffee and they are going to get some groceries with this nifty grocery gift card sent by the Meowers from Missouri. Thank you, thank you!

Mama has to buy me more hamm. We didn't have any for lunch today, we had turkey samiches, instead. This grocery store is the onliest one in town that has my favorite kitty food, Alley Cat. Course it also has hamm and bean food.

Maybe I can get her to take pictures on her walk to the clinic tomorrow. There are still some flowers out and stuff.

She goes back to the clinic on Tuesday to talk to a nice bean about insurants, to get all that straightened out, cause it's still a mess.

Purrayers for all who need it, including Tilly, and Jasmine, and CalicoMom, and Oreo's Mom, and efurryone else. Go to the purrayer meeting tonight at Hot(m)bc if you can.

Love to you all,

October 3, 2006

Can it be Tuesday?

Another warm sleepy day. Hmm. Might not be too many left this year! Mr. Squirrel and his lady and Chitterer came by today. And some birdies. The leaves are changing in the back yard. We are supposed to get some storms. And oh, yes, mama still hasn't found my octopus. But I don't think she looked too hard! I know its somewhere!

Mama didn't hear from any jobbies today, but she has to go back to the clinic tomorrow cause more medicine has come in. So she is going in the mid afternoon, just in case someone calls. She applied for another jobbie on Monster today. She said she applied there a couple of months ago, but never heard. Doesn't hurt to reapply, she said. And it's a different jobbie.

And the rent is paid, and we are waiting for more money to pay the utilities, and, well, we want to thank efurryone who has tried to help us. Even the encouragement helps. A lot. My nursie duties are a lot easier because of all of you.

Gentle headbumpies and purrs to all.



October 2, 2006

Monday News--or lack of

Nothing. I napped, helped mama eat lunch (turkey and hamm sammich), and napped and napped. My pink pillow is back. My octopus is still on the run. No one called for my mama. It's over 80 degrees.



October 1, 2006

Sunday, Sunday

Currently 81 degrees here! Nice warm day. Mama was mean and woke me up so I could blog. Well, now I am here. And there is really nothing to say. That's why I was napping!! Jeepers!

Mama only found one jobbie to apply for and that's it today. The rent will be paid up. She is waiting to pay the utilities, cause we only have so much money. We hope the human resource bean gets back to her from that one jobbie interview on Friday, so mama knows she at least has a chance.

That's truly it. So, Mama, lets catch up on other blogs and then I am going back to sleep!
