Snow and Chrismouse cards

Mom is so happy school is done for the year. Mom says she got at least one bee. She apparently likes bees because she was pretty happy about that. We don't think we'd like bees, but we are glad that she is done with school cuz that means more blog time.

Since she has been so busy, she says she just didn't have the time for us to mail Chrismouse cards this year. Hmph! BUT, she says since is much less busy now, she can help us make special online cards to email to kitties, like a lot of other kitties are doing this year to save time and monies. If you would like one, please send us your email to catsinmd at gmail dot com.

So we got a lot of snow this weekend here, kitties. Mom didn't have to go to work Saturday night cuz of it and she was happy bout that. She wasn't so happy about how hard it was to get home Saturday morning (Mom works the over-night shift).

Dad had the silly idea that we would want to see the snow. Mom told him it was silly cuz we don't like the outside to begin wit, we've been indoor kitties since we was just a few weeks old, but Dad wanted us to go outside.
So here we go. Oh, and these were taken around 11am on Saturday- it snowed til 9pm Saturday and the heaviest hadn't even arrived yet when we took these. We got about 14 inches of snow here in Balty Moore!!

The Humiliating Pictor- and an impurrtant request

OK, first the request:
Does anyone in the DC area know what the local TNR groups and shelters are? Our grampie has some feral cats in his old apartment complex that he used to feed and he is concerned about them now that he is moving. Mom thinks there are less than 10 that need homes. Also Grampie has taken in two of the ferals to his new house also in the DC area and they are not getting along well with his one indoor only cat.
Could somebody email us at catsinmd AT gmail DOT com about this for the details and if they can offer any help? We don't live that far away- we are in Baltimore, but we don't know anything about feral cat colonies or about the groups in the area.

And now, for the humiliating picture..

He cut off my ears and look what he wrote on my box!!!

Stay Tuned..

Yes, Yes, the winner announcement is coming--sorry we really have to teach Mom time management skillz.
Oh, and Dad took a really humiliating pictor of me that Mom says we have to post soon. Until then, enjoy this cute pictor.

The Terrible No Good Rotten Day at the V-E-T

Cloud: So where does everycat think I was when the picture posted the other day was taken?
If you said that I was on top of Mom's computer, where I am NOT ALLOWED, then you were right!
Anyway, so at the V-E-T we got STABBED and on top of that, they clipped our toenails! Mom was in the one room putting Niko back in his carrier when she heard me saying all sorts of bad words from the next room over. I got so upset my neck puffed up and collar fell off and they couldn't even put it back on so they sent it home with Mom!
And if things could not get any worse, they called me FAT (Mom: no, they didn't) and said I had to go on a DIET (Mom: yep). This is not fair!
Well, anyway, hopefully everybody will send us a funny pictor today at catsinmd at gmail dot com for the contest tomorrow!!

Funny Picture Friday is BACK!!!

Next week would be when the beans celebrated Texas' gotcha day. (They don't remember the exact day, but it was near Halloween)

In his memory, we would like to bring back funny picture friday. The contest starts now and ends on Friday, October 30, 2009 at 12:01AM EST. You have until then to send us your entries at catsinmd at gmail dot com. For those that forgot or didn't know us back then, all you have to do is send us a picture of you being silly. Hams, buns, woofies, and all other furs are also eligible.

Normally we pick three winners. This time, we will have three categories, with one winner for each. The categories are: best costume, best overall, and best prairie-dog imitation (See sample below). You don't have to wear a costume or send in a prairie dog photo, just send in anything silly that you want.

All you have to do is send in your funny picture, (one per animal, multiple animals per house are fine), your name, a link to your bloggie if you have one, and if you are going for a specific category, list which one. Have fun guys!!

Oh, and here's the sample pic of the prairie dog. Mom went to the National Zoo last week.

Tweet Week #1

Fin had a great idea and suggested this week be tweet week.
Well, Mom loves birds a lot, and has 3, so she insisted we purrticipate.
We will start this week off with an old picture of Cricket. Mom only had him for about a year before he got ill and died. Here is him admiring his handiwork- he had chewed thru the cord on Mom's playstation controller!
Sorry for the bad pic, Mom only had a webcam at the time and no digital camera.

Happy Anniversary, Mom & Dad!

Today is Mom & Dad's fifth wedding anniversary!

They did not celebrate last year, because they were so sad over Texie. But they know that Texas would want them to celebrate this year,so they will. They will be going to Myrtle Beach in a little over a week to celebrate, but they had a candlelit dinner last night as well. (Today, Sept. 4, is actually their anniversary, but Mom works nights on Fridays so they had the dinner on Thursday).

Memories of a Magnificent Mancat

Today we will remember Texas, Mom and Dad's kitty that came Before.
It is hard for them to believe that it has been a whole year since Texas went to the bridge because his cancer had spread. We tried to show pictures that hadn't been posted on his blog before, since we know that most of his friends are now our friends and therefore have read his blog. Mom has also written a tribute to him at the bottom.
[Update for Cindy and any other cats or beans that are curious: Click Here to see why it is called "going to the bridge"]

Here is a picture of him trying to open his mail, shortly before he went to the bridge.

The rest of these are from happier times, before he got sick. Here is him claiming a Wii controller as his own.


Sleeping on Mom's computer chair.

Helping rip up the old carpet.

Playing String with the Beans.

Mom here:

Today is the anniversary of one of the saddest days of my entire life. But I know he would not want to remember the bad things. He would want me to remember the good things.
So I will try to remember. I remember how we got him. There was an ad on the bulletin board that a cat needed a good home. His first Mom, Ms.C, who is now a friend of ours, had to move, and could not take more than 2 of her cats with her. Texas really wanted to be an only cat anyway, so we found out this was really for the best. And he definitely enjoyed it when Ms.C would come visit him here!
He was a BIG kitty. But he was terrified when he came here. He stayed by our roommate's fridge in the basement for about 4 days and would not leave. He barely ate for a few days. But then, we came downstairs one day to find that he was eating. And not only that, he had a very unique way of eating! He would carefully pick out his dry food and swish it around in his water, and then eat it. We showed all our friends and everybody was just absolutely amazed and no one had seen anything like it before. It was so fun to watch.
A few years after we got him, we had a minor mouse problem for a few months. He would always dutifully bring them to his Dad (DEFINITELY not me, he knew better!!) and Dad would dispose of them. Well one day, not really meaning it of course, I asked him if he really had to kill them. Well, the next time he brought Dad a mouse, Dad asked for it, and Texas would not give it up. Texas gave him Dad asked for it several more times, and finally Texas gave a "are you sure?" look, and released it-- ALIVE. From then on, all of the mice he brought Dad were alive. (Granted, we only ever had a total of maybe 10 mice in the house ever, so we are talking about maybe 5 or 6 times here). Dad was nice enough to then put the mice in a container and walk them several blocks from the house before releasing them.
Texas loved to chase "imaginary mice" too. After starting chemo, Mom knew she had her Texie back for a little while when he started doing that again, at least for a few weeks.
He also loved to look out the window and sniff and sniff and sniff. But he didn't like outside all that much. He would lay in the grass for a little while, but then when a car would come by he would run back to the house and that would be it for that day.
He loved to play "Lion Tamer" with his Dad. Dad found out one time when yawning that Texas absolutely loved to sniff an open mouth for some reason.
He also loved people food. He "begged like a dog", according to our roommate. After starting chemo it was just a waiting game for several days to see if he would recover. Mom's birthday was shortly after he got sick, and Dad had promised to make Mom a candlelit dinner at home to celebrate. She didn't really feel like celebrating because she was still so worried about him. But as Dad was cooking dinner, Texas came upstairs for the first time in about a week! And he didn't just slowly wander around. No, he RAN around the living room, climbing on another chair near the table, BEGGING and meowing and meowing and meowing for some of our dinner. That was the best birthday present ever.
We will see him again at the bridge one day. For now, he lives in our hearts. We love you, Big Guy.

We are fine!

Mom says she's just been "Busy" again and so didn't have as much time to help us blog.

If you call antics like this "Being busy". Yes, technically that's Dad stuffing me in the box, but she took a pictor of it! Oh, the Catmanity!
But we have posts scheduled for the next two days at least.

Thankful Thursday

Niko: I'm thankful my sister's test results were mostly normal. And I'm thankful Mom doesn't have the camera right now to catch me...

Oh. Oops.
