Life is Grand

The beautiful Halloween gave me this Life is Grand! award and I am so excited! The rules are:

a. Link to the kitty who gave the award ~ Thank you very much

b. Give 5 reasons your life is grand.

1. I am an indoor kitty but sometimes my Daddy takes me outside and watches me the whole time while I play in the tree by our house. I think I will have a Thursday Thirteen picture essay of how much fun I have soon.

2. I have lots and lots of windows to look out of when I have to stay inside. There are a lot of sun spots to enjoy because there is a lot of sun in Roswell.

3. I have a weird Tortie sister named Raisin a'Ruckus who tries to torment me every day. But we chase each other and play too. I also have a woofie sister named Sushi and a woofie brother named Zeke to play with. Sushi plays more than Zeke but he thinks he is the referee so he is almost always involved in everything we do. The best thing is that we all like each other (even though we try to pretend we do not).

4. Mom and my Daddy keep our food and water bowls clean and full even when they are tired or do not feel good. They also keep our litter box cleaned out every day. I think they might do that to keep themselves happy as much as to keep us happy though.

5. Even when I dump the clean towels out of the laundry basket and sleep on them no one yells at me. They might grumble a little bit but they usually smile and laugh too. Sometimes they even get out the clicky flashy box ~ it is fun to be hiding by the time they get back with that thing!

c. Pass the award on to 5 friends. I will include kitties and woofies in this list.

1. Dr Tweety and da Fab Five because they have had a lot of troubles lately but they keep a positive attitude.

2. Dave, Zim, Ammy and Stormy, the Army of Four because they always seem to be having fun.

3. Earl Grey, Tazo and Titus, the Furry Kids because we enjoy the frooooot baaaaat contests and the excitement of Earl Grey and his evil twin Hurl Grey and the queenly calm Tazo Tuesdays.

4. Moe, Mindy and Bono, Team Tabby because we have known and loved them for a long long time ~ almost from the time I started my first blog a squillion years ago!

5. Samantha, Mr. Tigger and Maverick because we love them too! And because Maverick is a Rat Terrier and Zeke is half Rat Terrier so we feel almost like cousins.

There are so many others of you that we love that I will also give it to anyone else who wants it!

Life is grand for a lot more reasons too.
Miss Peach is still not feeling completely well after her surgery but her VET is taking good care of her. And her LapDaddy is home and healing nicely after his recent heart attack.

KC's Daddy Charley is starting to feel a little bit better now that he is getting the fluids and meds he needs in the hospital. Mom ML was not able to get to the hospital today because of very bad weather but KC says they are safe.

The list could go on and on. We thank the Lord for a Grand Life!

Daddy Charley is Sick

KC's Daddy Charley has been very sick with flu-like symptoms for several days. Last night he fell and he had to go in an ambulance to the hospital this morning. Mom ML was with him and Auntie Deb has helped KC post updates. Daddy Charley is doing better and is resting fairly comfortably at the hospital.

Charlie Cat is still at the v-e-t but he is doing better now too.

Please keep prrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrring and wagging your tails and purraying for Daddy Charlie, Mom ML, Auntie Deb, KC and all the kitties ~ for safety and healing and peace.

Oreo - RIP

The Cat Blogosphere has lost another dear friend, Oreo. Oreo's blog was one of the first ones Mom read with our One Who Came Before named Pfredd. In fact if he had not had to leave Mom and my Daddy this would be Pfreddy's blog and not mine.

We missed Oreo while he took a long break from his blog and we looked forward to his return. We are sad that he got so sick and had to leave us before we could get to know him better. He left a lovely post today and his Mom Heather has promised to post again in a few days when she feels able to do it.

Au revoir beautiful Oreo.

Purrayers Needed

Miss Peach's LapDaddy is in the hospital after having a heart attack today and her Mommy says he is getting the very best of care. We are prrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrring and wagging our tails and purraying for Miss Peach, her LapDaddy and her Mommy! We know the Lord is watching over and caring for all of them. Miss Peach will be alone tonight so we are sending her lots of {{{{HUGS}}}} and comforting thoughts. There is more information on Miss Peach's blog and at the Cat Blogosphere.

Susan Boyle

This is how I like to listen to good music:
I have listened to Susan Boyle sing on "Britain's Got Talent" several times while Mom and my Daddy watched the YouTube video. If you have not already watched or listened to it you are missing something wonderful. I wish I could embed it here but YouTube has disabled that option by request. I am pretty sure we have to start saving green papers to buy her CD when she makes one.

I discovered HAM!

New Very Important Information: The Cat Blogosphere is reporting that Miss Peach is out of her surgery and resting until she can go home. We are really happy to hear that! Hi hi hi hi hi! It is my turn to post again ('cuz Tiger Lily is a good sister).

So I decided to show you how I made sure I moved to Roswell when the rest of my family did. There was NO WAY they could leave me behind 'cuz I was packed up with some of the other very important stuff. I came down with Mom and Zeke and was here a whole week before Tiger Lily and Sushi were. So you know I was very important.

And now I know what Miles Meezer is talking about every time he talks about HAM. Mom made a HAM sammich for lunch yesterday and gave me some. At first I had to think about it but I sure am glad I decided to try it! Wow! Wow! WOW! I would have eaten a whole slice if Mom had let me! Zeke and Sushi ate their pieces too but Tiger Lily would not even try it. She has NO IDEA what she missed! We can have HAM any time and I will be happy.

Happy Easter!

This weekend I mostly just chillaxed on my very comfortable bed. My Daddy went grocery shopping (not his favorite thing) with Mom on Saturday. Mom worked on taxes (not her favorite thing) on Sunday. I tried to talk them into joining me but they just mostly ignored me. I think I had a better weekend than they did ~ they are both tired today. Hahahahaha!

Wordy Wednesday

Here is a picture of my woofies in our new home: It was very cold out that day and they shivered very hard when they went outside so Mom dug out their winter clothes. Sushi did not like wearing her sweater even though the argyle design is very fashionable. Zeke complained about his denim jacket but he was happy to have it on when he went out again. I probably do not have to tell you what will happen to Mom if she tries to put anything like that on me. Just believe that There Will Be Blood if she ever does!

Anyway Zeke turned 13 on March 10. Since it is now April 1 and there is no earlier post about it on this blog it is obvious that Mom ignored his birthday. What Mom? Oh she says she and my Daddy were both sick and they did not feel up to having a party. At least he did get a special treat that day. OK he got a small steak all his own for dinner. It is a good thing I do not eat steak or I would have been just a little bit unhappy that I did not get any.

We do not know Sushi's birthday for sure but it is somewhere at the end of March or in early April . So now Sushi is 7 years old and again we did not have a party. I think she will get a special treat tonight but it will not be steak. There was no meat in the people meal tonight so I am not sure Mom and my Daddy will make it to tomorrow. (They seem to think they will be OK but I will have to wait and see.) That means there was no meat for Sushi though so I do not know what her treat will be. Maybe it will be the sausage I thought Mom was saving for breakfast.

My birthday is in May. I have to share the day with Ruckus because we were born on the same day one year apart. We think have the same cat mom but that we have different cat dads. I hope we can have a party this year!
