File under Beans are Crazy...

This is what happened today: Mama gotted two calls. One was to set up an interview next
Tuesday. That was fine. But about an hour later the lady bean emailed and said she couldn't meet with her then. And would contact her soon. Huh???? What about another phone call?? Then a gentleman bean called about a job mama applied for over a month ago. He said that they narrowed it down to 25 applicants. Would she be home for a call next Wednesday to set up an interview, if, after they narrow it down to 10 and then the top three, she makes the cut? That is plain weird.

Today she also applied at a place that is across and down the street from the school she got laid off from.

I have been bugging her today, cause it is cold. So mama has been putting up with me all day. There was some work going on in the hallway of the building this afternoon, so it was kind of noisy, but I stayed on mama's lap. She fed me part of her sammich for lunch, too. Hammmm!

A little while ago, I gotted a lot of energy and ran through the partment, back and forth from the windows in the different rooms. Mama said, "are you crazy?" and then laughed at me.

Hey, it keeps me warm!

Tomorrow one of mama's sisters is coming to town, so she is going to meet her. Saturday she is going to be with a friend. So, I will have to stay warm by myself.

FYI, it is now 13 degrees! Brrr. Glad we have comforters and blankies!

love, purrs, headbumpies, nosekisses for my Sugar Pie,

Help Needed

A St Cloud Animal Shelter is closing at the end of the year and that means dozens of cats and some dogs need a new home.The Barking Ark Animal Shelter is closing because it's losing its contract with the City of St. Cloud, which is opening its own animal shelter in January, 2007.The Barking Ark is a private shelter that takes in stray animals. If the animals aren't claimed after five days, they are put up for adoption. But any animals still not adopted by the end of the year, will be euthanized because the new city run shelter won't keep animals up for adoption for more than three days. If you'd like to give one of these animals a home, go to and click on shelters in St. Cloud MN or call (320) 251-1242

Rainy Monday

Rainy day here. I have been sleeping a lot, but no sunbeams to lay in! Mama applied for a jobbie today that is kinda far away, but she has applied for jobbies in that area before, and even though it may be a long travel time and maybe a bus transfer, she could catch up on her reading. She's thinking positive. They have a lake in the area and walkways and stuff.

Mama gave me some of that good stinky goodness for breakfast that Max sent me. She said that I made snorting noises when I ate it. But it was GOOD. Its the Fancy Feast Gourmet with the greens in it and Salmon. I don't care. I'll snort if I want to. Nummy!

That's about it. Nothing else new. Just spending time dreaming of my sweetie and purraying for lots of beans and furbodies.

Purrs, headbumpies to all,

Quiet Sunday

The new woofie sent me a comment, but it disappeared. Hope you come back and visit!

I hope you all have heard of hug baskets. I sent little KC one for the weekend. It is a basket that is in your mind, and you fill it with hugs for someone. I squished a lot of them in the basket and teleported it over to KC in the hospital. I am also sending one to Tilly's family, cause they need one, too.

No jobbies to apply for today. I think that is because of the holiday weekend. We hope.

Sposed to be rainy the next few days and then really cold again. Yuck.

Mama gave me more treaties today.

I am going to catch up on some bloggies and if there is any news I will add a p.s.

Love, headbumpies, purrs, purrayers, and a nosekiss to my Sugar Pie,

p.s. Be sure to visit Lily and Iris 's new blog. They are the sisfurs of Mu Shue. Sisfurs unite!

Honesty is Still Alive

Ooh, we has nice news! Mama wented to the grocery store to get me hamm and Alley Cat dry food (my favorite!) and a couple of other things for herself. And went she was done, one of the clerks camed up to her and said that a couple of weeks ago when mama was there, she rang her up wrong, and the bookkeeper found it (it was an employee perk she rang up instead of produce), and she remembered mama. So she gave her $10 back, AND her supervisor handed mama some purrty flowers!

Some beans are really honest, huh? Is it any wonder mama likes shopping there? This was after mama had given all her spare change to the bell ringer outside the store.

And that's the nice news.

Love, headbumpies and purrs, especially to my Sugar Pie, and thank you to the nice grocery store for being honest, and for the purrty flowers,


p.s. Daisy Mae Maus has a woofie cousin with a new bloggie. Visit him at Shadow Saluki and say hello.
Sweet little KC is doing better. Please continue to send healing thoughts to her.
And please check out the wonderful tribute to Tilly at And then there were and remember your tissues when you read it....
Oh, and William has a cousin who has a new bloggie! Kindly check out Shilgiah the Huntress .

November 24, 2006

The day after

Well, we had turkey, hamm and chicken yesterday! Whoohoo! Hope you had a good Thanksgiving. Today's goodies included some more turkey and some chicken treaties from a certain southern gentlecat and his mama. Don't get jealeous, Sweetums, they were just being nice to me, southern style.

Anyway, no jobbies. No shopping. Just a nice snuggly day today.

Be safe,

love and purrs and headbumpies for all (including my Sugar Pie),

BIG p.s. Please go to the Pet Prayer and Praise Blog tonight at 8:30 EST. Little KC has complications from her ladygardenectomy surgery and needs our help.
Also, Brendan of Caturday needs good thoughts, too.
And we mourn the passing of Tilly of the Tower Hill Mob who gave thanks for her life and her family and crossed the Rainbow Bridge on Thanksgiving.

November 23, 2006

Thank You


November 22, 2006

Almost Thanksgiving

What mama wanted most to be thankful for was a new jobbie, but that hasn't happened. She is scared and unhappy, and purrs don't always work to make her feel better. We searched yet again today, and did apply for another jobbie, but no one has called her back this week. We hope it is just that everybody is busy with plans for Thanksgiving. At her old jobbie, they got to go home early on the day before Thanksgiving, and didn't come back in till the following Monday.

So, here we are. A sort of quiet day. The phone was knocked off the hook for an hour or two (sorry, mama) and we missed the mailcarrier, but that was it.

Hope efurrybody and bean has a good Thanksgiving.

We are going to be thankful for all of you. And that's a lot to be thankful for.

love, headbumpies, purrs and purrayers, and sending sweet thoughts to my special sweetie,

November 21, 2006

Another quiet day...

Okay, another one. No phone calls, mama nappied with me, nothing else happening. A few little sunbeams to lay in and dream of my Sugar Pie.

Love, purrs, headbumpies to all, including my sweetie,

November 20, 2006

Another quiet day...

Yup. Mama applied for only one jobbie today, and got no phone calls except from friends. I have been sleeping a lot (dreaming of hamm pizzas and my sweetie, *kittysigh*) There was some sun this afternoon that was good to nappie in.

We had chickies for lunch, and mama shared. We played catdancer this afternoon. We snuggled. Mama's stomach doesn't feel good after she jobbie hunts....

Thanksgiving is coming!

Love, headbumpies, purrs, and purrayers for beans and non-beans who are in need,
and a special purr and headbumpie for my Sugar Pie,

Hi, there!

Nothing happened this weekend, really, so we have not blogged. However, we added some links to our blog, and caught up on reading the many blogs of the cat blogosphere.

Mama went to the store and spent a little on Thanksgiving. She has been giving me treaties a lot (thank you Beau, I love chicken treaties!) and I have been curling up on her lap a lot this weekend.

She is kinda depressed, cause she really wanted a job by Thanksgiving. But we keep on looking.

You will notice a new thing under the Other Sites I Like. It is for They are a real nice place, and Dr. Keith has been on the Today Show (just this last week). This is a place to help beans in a temporary fix. Because some of you have been helping us, we are not eligible for them, but I think mama should help them when we get on our feets and mama has a jobbie.

That's it for the weekend,
Love, purrs, headbumpies, and we are purraying for a lot of beans and furry ones!

p.s. And a special hi to my Sugar Pie. I have been dreaming of you, my sweetie! Purrrrrs!

November 17, 2006

We are Sad Today

Waiting for two jobbies. One never called. *kittysigh* That means they found someone else. One emailed (your skills are exemplary but we hired someone else).

Nuff said. Mama is very sad. I have lots of work to do.

love, headbumpies, purrs to all, and hi to my Sugar Pie,


November 16, 2006

Another Quiet Day

Yup. No phone calls. One more jobbie applied for. Lap time on mama this afternoon. We want a phone call tomorrow!!!!!

Not that I don't like a quiet day on mama's lap. I just want her happy again. And she is happy working. Get that, you jobbie beans???

That's it today. Love, headbumpies, purrs, and special purrayers for those who are ill,
and see you in my dreams tonight, Sugar Pie! I'll ask mama to play cat dancer with me this evening and think of you,


November 15, 2006

Nothing New

Ho, humm. Nothing new. We did have chicken last night, and then afterwards mama got out the catdancer and played with me. But today has been quiet, cloudy, cool. Nappie time nost of the day.

No calls from jobbies, just from friends. Mr. Squirrel wasn't around (embarrassed at his snow prediction that didn't happen???)

love, as always, and headbumpies and purrs and purrayers for those who need them,
a special hi to my Sugar Pie,

November 14, 2006

Tuesday doin nothing...

Mama and I just hung out today. I have been curled up on the footstool in the living room most of today. Kinda cloudy, kinda cool out, and no phone calls or anything. Mama applied for another jobbie, and that's it.

Thank you efurryone for the good thoughts. I hope Max and Buddah don't get taken to the vet cause all their paws are crossed like they have to pee and can't. And if you cross your eyes, too, that really might make you dizzy! So Missy and KC better not do that.

Ham pizza may be coming soon. Wouldn't that be wonderful? A party!!

In the meantime, I hear there is chicken tonight. Hmmm.

Love, purrs, headbumpies and purrayers for those in need, and a special hi to my Sugar Pie,

November 13, 2006

Surprise Interview

Woohoo! One of the jobbies that mama applied for yesterday emailed her last night and set up an interview TODAY! So mama wented downtown this afternoon and did an interview! They will let her know by Friday, and if she gets the jobbie she would start next week! Cross your paws, efurryone!!! That would be a lot to be thankful for on Thanksgiving!

Other than that, we once again missed the snow. It is currently 36 degrees, though, and a cold wind is blowing. Brrrr! But it will get worse, never fear. This is Minniesnowta, and will be much colder by Christmas, and probably white out.

That's it today. We will check out some of the blogs out there (honestly, we can't do it every day, cause there are sooo many of them, but we try to read each one at least two or three times a week, and there are favorites we do read every day, and when there is illness or something going on we check those daily). Ah, the joys of dial-up!

Love, headbumpies, purrs and purrayers for those who need them,
a special headbumpie for my Sugar Pie and his mama who hasn't been feeling well,

Sunday and Dark and Gloomy

It gets dark waaaay too early now! Yucky! This morning I got to curl up on mama, and I even let her hug me. Last night we DID have meatloaf, and I got some! Yummy!

Mama did her jobbie search and found two jobs today, and sent another place her resume and information to search.

It's not even bad today, 36 degrees right now. Just was not very bright. I think tomorrow there is going to be sun.

Snuggle weather. *kittysigh*

Love, and purrs and headbumpies to all, and purrayers for all in need (bean and non-bean)
and a special hello to my Sugar Pie,

November 11, 2006

Left at Home!

My mama left me this morning! At least I had foods and water and a little bit of scritchies! She brought some foods home, though, a couple of nappies later. That was nice.

We missed the snow, but I hear it's coming tomorrow! Mr. Squirrel made his rounds this morning and says he can smell it coming. I didn't think squirrels could do that, but what do I know?

I think mama is going to have meatloaf tonight. Yum! That's what I vote for, anyway.

Love to all, purrs and headbumpies, and
sending snuggles to my Sugar Pie,

November 10, 2006

We Got Missed!

The snow went south and missed us! But it's supposed to catch up with us on Sunday. It is cool today (right now it's 29). Nappied a lot. Dreemed of my Sugar Pie.

Quiet day. No jobbies for mama.

love, headbumpies and purrs to all, especially Sugar Pie, and purrayers to those who are in need of them,


p.s. Beau's regular blog site has been fixed, so you can use that one now. And Concatulations to my Sugar Pie, who is now an official reporter for the CatBlogosphere. I'm sooo proud of him!

November 9, 2006

Sunny Day

Ooh, this afternoon the sun just poured into our place. Nice warm sun. It is cooler out, today, and they are predicting *gasp* snow tomorrow. I have been a little crabby lately. I think it's the weather. Hot, cold, hot cold.

Mama has no good news on the job front. No more interviews scheduled. Come on, beans, please hire her! We need to get back to normal around here! *kittysigh*

A snuggle day.

The link to the CatBlogosphere still doesnt work.

Love, purrs headbumpies, purrayers for the ill (beans and kitties),
and hello to my Sugar Pie,

p.s. Thank you Karen C. for helping mama with the CatBlogosphere picture and link!!!!! And thank you everyone else who has assisted!!!!! It works!!!!!

November 8, 2006

Crazy Wednesday

The red thing on my picture is my Octopus. It is red and white. Well, currently not so white. Mama is asking is this washable?? Hmm.

It is currently 68 degrees amd mama even had the fan on today! What a difference from a few days ago when it was 27! But, we all know it won't last!

No jobbies. No news. Pretty sad around here. I think I am going to catch up on blogger and nappie.

Oh, we got the Cat Blogosphere picture to appear, but it doesn't link.

love, purrs and headbumpies,
especially to my Sugar Pie,

p.s. Please purray for Alberta, she is at the vet and ill (Feline Oligarchy)

November 7, 2006

Tuesday Update

Tummy Tuesday. Dark and gloomy day. Hope everyone voted. Mama did!

She had a nice interview, got some coffee, ran a couple of errands and went to vote.

Now she is home.

I almost wish she would take some more pictures! I don't have enough of me!

Love, purrs and headbumpies,
and a special hi to my Sweetie Pie,

ps. Happy Blogiversary to the Crews Views

November 6, 2006

Quiet day here, except for some phone calls from mama's friends. She is preparing for tomorrow's interview. I am looking forward to dinner. Mama made a meatloaf. I loooove meatloaf. It's still warm around here and nothing exciting happening. Mama couldn't find any jobs to apply for today. Hmmm. *kittysigh*

Hope she does well tomorrow.

Still haven't figured out how to both put the CatBlogosphere picture and link to it on the sidebar. *hmmph*

Love, purrs and headbumpies to all,
and specially to my Sugar Pie,

For those of you who would like to find a Great Harvest Bread Company near you, try this: That is their main internet site. Mama and I had a scone this morning and it was really good. Course, she wouldn't let me have any of the chocolate and the cherry, but it was still good. And hamm sammiches are good on the cheesy bread with garlic.

And yes, there was some romance at the party last night. Mr. Hendrix asked me to be his girlfriend cat and I ... said yes. There is an age difference between us, but he is a very nice gentleman cat. I am so honored!

It has been up to at least 60 degrees today! Mama found another job to apply to today. And she has an interview Tuesday. The cat dancer toy is kinda fun. We have played with it several times. And the fancy Fancy Feast is scrumptious.

Mama wants to know somethings. How can we get a second page? We want to put up a page just for the linkies, or some kind of thing that would squish them on my page cause the list is growing and growing, and mama wants to add some stuff but it's getting pretty long. And we have not been able to add the cat blogosphere thingy cause we need an html. Help anyone?

Love, purrs and headbumpies to all,

November 4, 2006

Beautiful Fall Saturday--Fall is Back!

Yeah, it's warm again. 51 degrees right now! Nice nappies in the sun!!!

Mama left me home this morning to go out with another friend of hers. They went to the Great Harvest Bread Company. Do you have one near you? They are full of wonderful things! Mama gotted a round loaf of bread filled with globs of cheddar cheese and flavored with garlic. She also bought a couple of scones (they are very good), and some soft wheat bread sticks (mama loves these). If you have one of these stores near you (try an internet search), they are wonderful. They will also mail out bread and stuff. They have daily and weekly and monthly specials.

When mama gotted home there was a package. It was from Max and Buddah. Thank you, thank you! It had a furry thing, a cat dancer, and some fancy Fancy Feast ( I get to try some for dinner tonight) and even something for mama.

Won't that bread taste good with a little hamm and turkey? Huh, mama? Huh?

love, purrs, headbumpies and a special thank you to Max and Buddah and their mom for making our day,

November 3, 2006

Friday Update

Mama didn't get the other job either. No one called today. Course, she didn't sit around home, either. She wented out with a friend today and brought home some food(Alley Cat, too. She remembered!), and a bear. We don't need any more bears. Even though it was very inexpensive ($1.69) and has a cute Christmas Tree sweater. No more stupid bears, mama, there is a rule about that!

If mama was to buy me a flannel shirt or jacket or what ever, what are kitty sizes anyway?? And where would she shop? She found some doggie sweaters today, but didn't think I would want one. Not a doggie one! She has a flannel robe and I love that. It is so warm. And of course a flannel blanket that is draped over the computer chair! Maybe that's enough.

A little warmer today, still, I ran for mama's lap when she sat down after putting the groceries away.

Stay warm and cozy,

November 2, 2006

Thursday news

Well, gee. I fell asleep right in mama's arms this afternoon. The bendy place on her arm was just right to put my head. Hmm. This was almost better than a lap.

It's 27 degrees again right now. Winter temps are settling in, I guess. No new jobbies to apply for today, but she has another interview on Tuesday!

I wonder if they make little flannel jackets for kitties.......

love, purrs, headbumpies and all good thoughts,

November 1, 2006

Hey, what happened to FALL?

Would somebody tell me, please? It is currently 27 degrees out. And not enough sun this afternoon for a nap in the window! I got a couple of good ones on mama's lap, though. And shared part of her lunch ( who knew squash was good?). She gotted a call from a place she applied for a jobbie, and they will be "forwarding her resume on", whatever that means. And the ladybean said, oh, and haven't I talked to you before? Of course she had. Mama has only applied for a job there a half dozen times! Maybe persistance will help??

Hope effurry one had a bootiful Halloween and was safe!
