Ohhhhhhhh all alone an you kin do wotever u want all day like eat the plants an jump on th beds an play wif the puter??? Souns like a vacayshun to me! I tryed to get Iris to play this morning but she wanted to nap, I did everything I rolled on my back, I looked cute and I waved my tale in her face...Nuthin!! I' m gonna go hunt mini, she's too old and fat to run away.
I am a little cold here. My moms just can't get the hot box to work right. She says she should have gone to furnace school instead of college. Yada, yada, yada. Get a grip woman and give me food and a warm blankie before I have to bite!
We iz a gettin a big storm, Just like Wallingford & Sampson thunderpaws.. It is sposed to come here
It was bad nuffs we had the "darks" the utter night and it got reeelee cold in here. Mom coodn't use her lektric blanket
so I was cold. Sumbodies hit a tellephone pole and took it all down. They was oK though so that part was good.
I didn't sees it...we got them varrrom monsters ebberywhere...and Mom don't likes them. Not at 2:00 a.m.!!!
Its all over the talking box about bad weether and "stock up". I looked...we are almost out of food!! Only about 20 cans, I could die of
starvations. AND...momanddad are leevin Sunday and we are stuck with the yooman kids here. We are gonna die.
We is all, glad dat we lives in the south, dot way we not has the weather , like Wallingford, Huck, and Tao got.It would leave the groc. stores, and gas stations emty, and we would has to suffer , cause the fire box need woods to work. I, for one be so use to dat fire box, dat I don'ts know what I woulds do.Daddy still trys to gets wood, and keeps us warm, to sleep by. Tigger
BTW I wishes for my Daisy May to stays warm, and fed. T
Oh,ya, but you gots BUGZ...lots 'n lots of BUGZ. Me 'n the gurlz just hates bugz. Mummy sez the onliest good part of livin' in da cold wethers iz it kilz the bugz. As long as we gots sunpuddles an' hot boxes on the florz, we iz gud.
I is so glads to hears it. Maybe some bugs, but Simon catch every one, and put it in his cube, for his momma to see.So buggs is a good thing here.When momma cleans out the bugs, she give him some treats.
You stays warm, and helpful to your mommy, and things will works out wellers.I knows yous can be a goods boy, Wallingford, and yous might just surprise yo momma, and all of yous will spend happy times.We has crossed paws, for your family.Old Tigger says dat you looks too nice a boy, to cause your famly problems. happy snow times, Simons ands the gang.
I have been sleeping, too. My moms says the croakus ar up. I don't know what that means but it doesn't mean that I get food - so the information is useless. Dudes, do your people ever give you useless information?
Simon sez, dat the sun gonna shine, jest wait till next Mon. Yous will see. I'm not going out in dat wet mess, so I'll jest njoy dee warm surondings of our happy home. Baggy has to stay out sides, but he have more shelters, and a fire box.He spend lots of time in de black smith shop. Dee clinkers, what ebber dat is, stay warms all night, and way ups in dee day. Baggy gots it made. Simon
I sneeked down in the seller this morning when mummy wuz going out to milk some cowz. She sez to me "Pippie, you gonna be down in this seller for a LONG time." Ha, I tinks she iz pullin' my tail. Holy mowsetrapz, mummy wazn't foolin...she din come back for 4 HOURS. I wuz so glad to see her, it waz dark down in that seller.
Hello Brovers, I has to tell dis en on Baggy. Baggy alawases has to gets in wid ya, and some times you don't knows where he acually is. He spent time in dee trunk of th car, in the car, and spent the nite two times. he spent the nite in de chicken coop, when he try to help daddy.Daddy was so surprized to see Baggy com outta de chicin coop, where he spent de night.
We thinks the worst thing Baggy did, was try to get in de house, and momma let the stormy door close, and gots in de wheel box, and left, for about 6 hours, and whem dem gots home, Baggy had spent de 6 Hrs. between de stormy door, and de locked door. He had to stand dat long, whilest M&D, and grand child waz gone. Momma goes to open de door, and Baggy sorta rolled out. Us catz had a real laff. Tigger
That happened to me, too. My moms friend came to visit and I got caught between the door and the storm door and moms was afraid to open the door! Her friend opened the door and there I was. Now you understand why I have to bite sometimes?
That must be something common...kauz that happened to old man Franky! He was there all nights long. Thankfully it was a
warmer night and not brain chigger night. Him kind of rolled out onto the floor also. Poor old boy.
Hi dudez...this is Hobo kat, I wuz gonna be a brudder to Pip, but Pip's mummy sez I gots to stay in the barn wif those udder outside katz. Mummy taked my pikshur when I wuz helpin' her pull weedz in the garden. I wuz bein' boss. Mummy sez all jobs gots to have a boss. See, I was doin' a good job, dontcha think?

Here is Daddy's little helper. He helps me with flowers, and helps me farm. Daddy Mike

Hello gentlmens Cats,
My name is Rohs, (say it like rose, but i turnded out to be a boy so i got a boy spelled name) I have been reading bout youses, and would like to know can i be in youses brotherhood? My 'dopted mama is in the YaYa sisterladies club, and she's liked it lotta. I want to have a club too! I have things to say. My ladyperson and her Mr. dont know it, but i can read, so i gotsta x-pand my horizons. Ennyhoo, I ams a grey and white american short hair domestic(really, ims WILD, but thats a discussion for another day.) I am 1 year old. Mostly i am a house cat, but i goes out in the morning and comes home at curfew, when the sun goes out. i stick around the yard, becuz you dont want to get too far from the food bowl!
I has a sister,and a half brother,a roommate who useded to be a feral cat,but changed his mind when hims got hurt bad and had my ladyperson find him in the garage and give hims soup and tuna and petting and now him is a housecat too named Titan, him has the FIV sick too. and the 'dopted mama ,Eva lives here too. I have to go now, cuz the ladyperson wants to use the computer. Hope I can be in the boy club.
maybe today is a tuna for breakfast day. 'bye
Rohs, wellkum to the manly place. It is the "Manly Cave", but sumtimez we gots to let the gurlz in, but nut menny timz.
I iz Pip; I no, not a reel manly name for a seventeen pound hunk of manly kat, but they gived me that name at the Hoo-mane place where Mummy an' Daddy taked me frum. I luvz it heer bukauze I have sun-puddles to sleep in, an' I haz the run of the howse. The bestest place to bee is Daddy's lap when he iz watchin' the big skware thing on a big stik in the living room. It has pikshures that keep movin' like peeples, an' they talks but I don't see reel peeples. I dunno what it iz eggzactly, but daddy keeps switchin to see different peeps. It iz too much thinkin' for a kat, so I just sleeps on Daddy's lap. As long as he don't move, I iz a happy kat.
Hey Pip, I sits like that on my dad too. I like his lap the bestest coz he dont move around and do other stuff alla time like mom dos. somtimes he snorrs but says hes waching the picshur box. ha ha.
welcom rohs. watch out for that huck, he's engorged to my sister cat sooky, and he gets all loopy over her and calls her mooshy names and stuff. we still likes him but its a little weerd. i am very manly also and chase all the girlz, even mini whoo is so old she showd up in cave drawings from the plisto...phisto...uhhhh some old time that used to be.
i am occashunally called a terrorist by peeps but its not true i am just lively.
Welcum to da brudderhud Rohs! Does yor momma haz a pikshur of you? I used to liv wif a grey cat, but he went ober da bridge.
My name is Thor, and I iz bery, bery old (i tink me an Tao's sisser Mini ar bout the same old). I haz a brudder named Max. We also libs wif a big oranj ting dat luks kinda like Huck. Max tinks it is fun to play wif dat oranj ting! It skweels lots when Max jumps on it.
Pip and Tao, Max will somtimbs wach da pikshure box if der is birdies or sumfin on dare.
Rohs, dis is me, and den Max and den our oranj ting:
Im in a club! yay. Now Eva can get off the high spot cuz her is not the only one who has things to say! I am so happy to meet you cats...Yous are all perfect examples of the perfectness of CAT-ness. In our house we have a box with noise and pictures in it too, i don't know the name of this thing, but my persons sit in front of it for a while, and this makes a good place for me to be on a lap. Lap sitting is very important. Also, jumping up to the kitchen counter is important too. Did any of you ever see the place that the water comes out? I gotta figure it out...where does it come from? Why does my fur get wet? Why ? It is funny to me that Tao is called a terrorist, becuz my people say i is a counter-terrorist!
Our house has a ornge guy too, hims is Titan. He is a old guy too, maybe 7 , he is big(13lbs) and has not had his boy operation yet, but soon he will. Ennyhoo, he does not do play, he does lotta sleep and lotta lotta eating...we other cats dont eat when Titan is at the food, cuz he makes a lotta snorgie noises and he pushes the foods all over and on the floor and stuff. My ladyperson told me to not make any fun of him, cuz hims had a rough life. He dont hardly have enny teeth,(sometimes the foods go in his mouth at the front an then fall out the side,haha) and his fangs is broke off at the tips. Hims had a terrible thing maybe hit by a fast wheelbox or attacked by a big animal when him was living wild and it broke his jaw!!! Titan was very skinny when him first came here. but him is better now. He purrs loud but his Meow is silent, we is friends now. I am a very easy going happy go lucky cat. I don't fight with ennybody. I like to play w/ my half bro Magic. I like catchin dems mice., and chasing dems birdies. I have a dog friend who is same size as me and her is a nice nurse, she cleans us catses ears, and will let us chase her tail.
My best favorite things is of course, TUNA, naps in the sun, or any naps any time or any place, being petted under my chin, and stalking anything I think i can sneak up on. Oh, and I like having a fresh litterbox.
I guess i talked alotta.. I got so much to SAY!
Oh, I feelz so bad fer your brudder Titan...peeples be's mean to sum katz, but its gud that yer hoomans taked him in and luvs him. I lived at the Hoomane 'siety for 6 munths, mummy telled me, but I haz lived here for 10 yeers. Mummy sez that is a LONG time. If peeples be'd meen to me, I don't 'member it, cuz everybuddy heer jist loves me bunches.
