Happy New Year!

The black-eyed peas are soaking. The duckling we were supposed to have tomorrow defrosted too fast so we ate it yesterday. My Daddy is so happy with the apple pie that I am seriously thinking about trying some. We had a white Christmas but the snow is almost gone and the temperature is supposed to go into the high 50s soon. We have watched a ton of college football bowl games. Right now we are watching "America's Cutest Pet" on Animal Planet. It has been a very good week. (Mom keeps complaining about not having cell phone service but I still do not know why she needs it.)

Many good things happened this year and many sad things happened too. We look forward to the new year and hope you all have a good 2012.

Christmas Greetings

Merry Christmas!

It is a white one here and I have not been allowed outside at all for the past 3 days. I think it might be because my woofie Sushi comes in covered in snowballs every time she has to go out. She has a towel by the door and the blow dryer has been getting a good workout.

A cell tower is down and Mom does not have phone service and she is not very happy that she will nnot be able to call anyone tomorrow. She said it is a good thing she has e-mail and Facebook and my (MY!) blog but we all really hope that service is back by New Year's Day.

I am writing this post on Mom's new netbook which is why there is no picture today. I hope I can get on the big 'puter tomorrow so I can put up our Christmas card for you all to see my woofie Zeke wearing his reindeer antlers.

Merry Christmas!

More Sad News

My cousin Tippy was a wonderful dog ~ very loving and snuggly with Grandma and very protective of her too. He helped her get through some hard times and she loved him a lot. We all loved him almost as much as Grandma did. Sadly he got very sick with a big tumor in his tummy.

Grandma said Tippy did not seem to be in any pain. Although he had not eaten very well for several days he finally ate a good breakfast and enjoyed a short walk with Grandma on September 20. He stayed outside while she went inside for a while. When she went outside again she found that he had gone peacefully in his sleep.

We all miss you very much Tippy!

So Sad!

We will miss Cathy very much.

{{{HUGS}}} and lots of prrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrs and head bumps and gentle tail wags to Cathy's family and to Beau especially.

I know we are late with this post. Mom and my Daddy were out of town a lot the last 2 weeks and today is the first chance we had to check our personal e-mail and our friends' blogs.

We Won the Championship!

The Roswell Invaders beat the Ruidoso Osos for the first ever Pecos League championship this week! Mom and my Daddy are not baseball fans but it is very exciting to have a team win a pro title for our city. The Invaders lost Game 1 on Tuesday the 16th then won Games 2 and 3 on Wednesday and Thursday.

Mom went to a couple of the regular season games but was not able to go to any of the playoff games. She says she enjoyed them a lot and that she will be able to go to more games next season. Of course you will never see me at anything like that ~ too many humans making too much noise.

Congratulations to everyone on the team!

A New Blog!

I found this new blog that I think is going to be very furry good. It is called Dear Tabby and it is an advice blog just for us! Dear Tabby will answer questions that we submit and I think it will be fun.

I hope you will go check it out and then send some questions to tabbyvanpurrinATyahooDOTcom (just remember to use @ instead of AT and . instead of DOT). Tabby will answer you even if you are not a kitteh!

Happy Mother's Day

Zeke and Sushi and I gave Mom a card this morning and it made her almost cry. She told me it was because she loves us so much and she was happy. I do not understand why being happy almost made her cry.

We also wish our Grandma and all of your Moms a very

Happy Mother's Day

with lots of snuggles and prrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrs and head bumps and tail wags.

It's Cold Out Here!

The temperature is supposed to get as low as 6 degrees here tonight and 1 degree tomorrow night and I am so very glad that I am an inside kittie. We have decided to ignore what it will do to our need for green papers and keep the furnace turned up so our house stays comfortable.

There are a lot of kitties living outside near our home and I have been concerned about them. My Daddy says they have a good place to go to keep warm so they should be OK. If it stays cold for more than a couple of days Mom says she will put out some food for them.

We hope you do not have to deal with all the snow the weather people keep saying is on its way. We hope the power does not go out. We also hope you are all able to stay warm!

A Big Surprise

We had some excitement here tonight. When Mom got home from her day hunting I was sitting on the rug watching under the desk that is next to the door. Sushi came to the door to say hello to Mom and then she started sniffing around the desk too. A little later my Daddy moved some stuff around trying to find whatever we were looking at but he did not see anything.

I got bored so I took a nap under the blue comforter but Sushi would not give up. Finally I heard a lot of noise from the living room so I decided to go see what was going on.

What do you think had happened? Can you guess?

If you guessed that a little mouse ran out from behind the bookcase and tried to escape into the kitchen you would be right! It did not escape very well though because Sushi jumped on it and bit it and it died. That probably should have been my job but Sushi did it very well since I was not in the room.

My Daddy picked it up and put it in a box and took it out to the dumpster. Mom really really hopes that more mice do not try to move into our house. I think she would put poison out under our house if there were not so many snakes and feral cats who live around here.

A Milestone!

I am going to be 5 years old in a few months. I have lived with Mom and my Daddy for all but 6 weeks of my life. Last night for the first time ever I jumped up and snuggled down between Mom's leg and the arm of the couch and stayed there for about a squillion hours. (It was more like one hour and I was thrilled! ~ Mom) Yes Mom was happy. I am sure she does not know I just needed the body heat.
