New Year's Eve

This has always been a time of human reflection and resolutions. That's cause beans are not as close to being good as we are. We always remember the nice things, and promise to be awesome every day.  What more could you ask?
Mama is going to a dinner tonight in our community room in the partment building.  I hope she saves some turkey for me! Or HAMMM!
Hope you all have a nice evening, this last of the year.  Remember all our friends, here and beyond and give thanks for all the good things in our lives.  Like having furever homes and loved ones all over the world on this internet thing.
I hope the neighbors don't have boomers tonight.
Stay safe if yours do.
love and peace,

Thought for the Day

When Christmas bells are swinging above the field of snow,
We heard sweet voices ringing from lands of long ago,
And etched on vacant places
Are half-forgotten faces
Of friends we used to cherish, and loves we used to know.

--Ella Wheeler Wilcox (1860 to 1919),
American Author and Poet

to remember our dear ones who have crossed over the Rainbow Bridge

Merry Christmas, All!

from our home to yours.
(hey the deers are Santa's so they are nice)
Have a safe and wonderful day.

It's Here, It's Here, Chrissymouse Eve is Here!

'Twas the night before Chrissymouse
and all through the house
Not a creature was stirring
and we had no mice.
Sweet brandi was snuggled and tucked into bed
With visions of Sugar Plum Fairies dancing in her head
(and her Sugar Pie, of course).
We wish you all Sugar Plum Fairies tonight.
and visions of loved ones in and out of sight.
Meowy Chrissymouse to all,
and to all good night.

It's Almost Time

Now listen, young ones (and a lot of you are young to me cause I'm  a senior cat).  You need to practice for when Santy Claws comes.  On Chrissymouse Eve you need to curl up and sleep real hard, cause if you peek he won't leave you any presents. And you don't want to miss out on all the loot!
So today is the day to practice your curling up and looking cute and sleeping and making sure Santy Claws leaves your presents. 
See.  Practice makes purrrfect.

And Again

Yup. Snow storm. Mama cancelled her bean vet pointment for tomorrow. I am snuggling in, by, on, and around my blankie.  Not that it's that cold.  The temp is 21 F out. A lot warmer than it's been.  But it feels like the best thing to do on a snowy day, nap in, by, on and around cozy things.
It's almost here.  Santy Claws is coming! Chrissymouse!
And mama is staying home ALL WEEK.  And Chrissymouse Eve I think Traci is coming over!  And we're having Turkey Leg again. And pressies!!
I can't wait, can you?
Last night we listened to a pretty concert on the television. They had lots of  singing beans in long robes and a guy waving his arms at them, and lots of beans playing music. I kept looking at mama and trying to say that it was pretty, but she was watching the beans really hard.
The Sugar Plum Fairies are coming out to play at our home.  Any time now.

Repeat Lesson

Yesterday's lesson was for all good kitties and other furries who decided they want to go out. It is worth repeating.  Furries, it is COLD out there (-3 degrees F here).  If you don't have a good warm coat of fur (like some woofies like Khyra) you will FREEZE.  Stay inside with your mommies and daddies. Seriously.  DO NOT GO OUT THERE. No matter how pretty it may look, snow is not good for most of us. Woofies need to go out sometimes, cause they don't use litter boxes like we sensible kitties do, but don't stay out there!
Thus endeth the lesson.
And in the last few minutes it has gone DOWN a degree here. Not a good sign.

Today's Lesson

Just thinking about outside is scary! If you have cold outside your door, STAY INSIDE! Unless you are a woofie that has lots of furs and likes cold, that is. It's 3 degrees out. 3! Listen to your mommies and daddies. And me.  You DO NOT WANT TO GO OUT THERE!
Give thanks today for having a furrever home, and pray for those that don't.
The only thing good about today outside is that there are sunbeams. Cold ones!

Another Uh-oh.

 You can barely see me. This was taken last night.  Cause I knew what was coming:
Yes, that's right.  They said something about a blizzard.  And not the kind you eat. And this really is a picture of what's outside our window this morning! Although you can't tell, there are waves and waves of snow falling!
As to other news, mama said the movie was really good this week.  They showed a movie called Red. It had Bruce Willis in it, and it was very funny.
Mama gotted her hearing aids. Now on the lowest dial, the ringing of the phone makes her jump it is so loud. Imagine that.  Oh, and she says she can hear my purrs better!
Tracy didn't come over yesterday cause she hurted her back.  She said if she feels better she will come over today.  But I don't think she will.  It's way too nasty out there. When you look straight out the window, it's just white.
We have a really pretty Chrissymouse tree downstairs in the commons.  But it has lighted up DEER standing by it! I told mama to be careful if she wants to take a picture of it!
Stay warm efurryone!
5 hrs later. Still snowing.
total for the day, 16.5 inches
 cold sets in. brrrr

December 7, 2010


The sun is out, and the sunbeams are here, and it is wonderfully... cold here. 8 degrees this morning!  I am thankful I have a furever home on days like this!
Mama has to go out in this cold weather tomorrow morning.  Brrrrrr.
Tonight is a resident meeting, so she will be gone most of the evening.
I am curling up and taking a nap. Or lebenty seven of them. Or more.

December 4, 2010


We had eight inches of snow! And now we have the ccccold.  Boy am I glad I have a nice warm home and blankies and mama to cuddle with!
We watched a couple of nice movies together today, and mama has been catching up on Eastenders.
Mama has to go out on Tuesday to the clinic again (three  busses) and it's going to be vverry ccccold. This is Minnesnowta, so she knows how to dress warm. She had to buy new boots for this winter, and she says they are very comfy and warm.  But I bet she stops off down in the lobby at the hot drink machine and comes up with some hot cocoa when she gets home late Tuesday afternoon!
Tracy was here yesterday, right before it started really snowing hard, and she went home before it got too bad.  Lucky she doesn't live too far away. One of mama's sisters called to say hi, yesterday, and said that the snow hadn't started at her house.  She lives farther north in Minnesota out in the country.  They get snowed in all the time.  I wonder how Molly is going to like walking in the snow this year.  Molly is their dachshund woofie. Wonder if they shovel just for her walkies? Or is she like Khyra, and loves the snow? Now Khyra would have lots of fun here! But Molly is a lot shorter.
Mama is reading a history of a baseball player named Hank Aaron which she is reading on the computer.  It's downloaded from our library, and it goes back on the computer when she's done reading it.  It is really a cool setup they have, borrowing books on line.  But I wish mama had a NookBook.  Then I could curl up on her lap when she's reading.  **sigh** Now she has to sit at the computer and read.
That's about all that's going on. The crock pot was out with nice smells, and the laundry is getting caught up.  Nothing much else.
Oh, one of the animal shelters south of here is closing down because they have run out of funding at the end of the year.  We heard on the news tonight that they had 35 doptions today, and any furry animals left at the end of the year would be placed in other shelters and foster homes. NOT PUT TO SLEEP!
Good news, right? Yea!
Nice thought to end this with,

Oh, Dear

Well, it has been cold here (13 degrees F or worse) and now there is a storm coming and more snow for the weekend. Mama wented to the doctor Wednesday in the cold and caught all her busses without waiting a long time in the cold air.  Yesterday there was a quick trip in the afternoon in case it's nasty today and this weekend, and it was Movie Night.  Mama camed back from Movie Night saying if she didn't have to be there to run stuff she would have left.  She said it was really too violent and bloody and they couldn't have been more gross if they had tried. They had more gorry ways to kill people than she thought possible.
So today we are staying at home being warm and cuddly, waiting for the storm later on today. No sunbeams like yesterday. Just gray.  Gray should be only for pretty kitties furs, not for the skies!
Have a cuddly day!
