Toesday Tuesday

Muffin Toes:

Random Midnight Musings, by Meowmie

Muffin just made me get out of bed (no, really, she did - she sits up the hallway chittering until I get up and see what she wants), follow her to the kitchen and rearrange the biscuits in her bowl for her. See, when she eats they all get pushed to one side where it's not optimal for her to get at them . . . so I often have to go and push them to the other side where she can eat them more easily. She's finishing noshing now, so is back in the hallway chittering. I would imagine this time she wants out - but it's bedtime, not out time, so she's out of luck.

Now Ebbie . . my sweet, dear, cranky Ebbie . . . Ebbie has lived with me for about two years now, but has never ever forgotten my parent's house, where she grew up. See, my front door opens right to left, but my parent's front door opened left to right and for the first four or so years of her life Ebbie knew that to get out, you went to the left side of the door. And to this day, even though my door opens in the opposite direction, she still goes to the left first. Talk about ingrained habit.

Tonight when I was knitting Muffin and Minx had an OMG MUST CLING TO MEOWMIE attack. I had Muffin on my knee nestled under my knitting needles (and ocassionally getting one poked in her ear . . . or eye . . .or nose) with one of her front paws stretched out as far as it would go with her claws very possessively hooked into my top (and through that, my bra . . . I was just glad she didn't dig any deeper). Minx was most put out by this - my knee, while I'm knitting, is usually her spot . . . so she settled for sitting on top of my laptop on the coffee table (which is pulled up snug against the couch) and *staring* at me intensely.

Muffin is still chittering - maybe if I turn off the lights, she'll go to sleep.

Mean Meowmie Monday (Also Miserable Moggy Monday)

Today Meowmie was FURRY MEAN!! Dis is wot it lukked lyke in da OUT today:

As you can playnely see, it is furry WET and not at ALL suityble for poodins of any sort. But Meowmie is MEAN and she doesn't trust Muffin not to pee in da house (Muffin: I DO NOT PEE IN DA HOUSE! I IS MARKING MY TERRYTORRY!) so we had to go INTO the OUT efun tho it was WET ALL DAY!

Da only gud fing is dat Meowmie felt so guilty dat we had been in da wet all day, espeshully when she herd abowt da fludding on da news, dat dis is wot we lukked lyke when she got home:

Efun Muffin got sum stinky gudness efun tho her kidneys aren't suppossed to haf it.
Of corse, wot Meowmie DIDN'T notyce is efun tho we had been owt in da rayn all day we was all still DRY! Cos we is not silly poodins and we found dry places to wayt - no water in owr furrs! AND, becos it's far to wet to be digging in da dirt to go to da pooh box, we saffed it all fur when we got inside and used the pooh box inside. Meowmie didn't lyke dat cos I stunk, and cos she really only keeps one litte box inside wif only a bit of litter in it for Muffin emergencies during da nyte - it's not up to da heffy duty use we gafe it today, and now Meowmie finks maybe she shud go owt in da rayn and get more litter. Hehehehe.
Dis is is wot we luk lyke now, and wot we will luk lyke for da rest of da efuning cos we are NOT going into dat OUT again!

Meowmie also wants me to say dat we haf been overwhelmed and so furry happy by all da comments on our Fursday Firteen post - effury bean and poodin has been so caring and luffing dat we all had water coming frum our eyes (and dat's all we need wif all da water coming from da sky). Meowmie will try and get around effuryone's journal to say fank you, but she has to get more wet eye cloffs first.

We want to asshure effury poodin and bean dat we is gud poodins when Meowmie is sad and we luk after her furry well. In fact, she says we are life savers, cos when she is at her werstest sadness she says dat we is da only fing dat keeps her alive and getting up in da morning, cos da thought dat we wud be left alone is a worser thought dan her sadness. Sumtimes she has had to go and stay in da hospytal ofurnyte and sumtymes dey want to keep her longer, but she won't let dem cos she has to come home and luk after us so she tells dem her baybees need her and dat we will luk after her and mayke her feel better . . . and we do! On Saturday nyte when she was sad, she tickled Muffin's pawsies lot and Muffin efun let her rub da belly and dat mayde her furry happy again! So you see, we is life saving poodins, and wif us around, Meowmie will always be okay!
Luff and purrs,

Thursday Thirteen, by Minx and Muffin

Thirteen Things dat you didn't know about our Meowmie

1. Our Meowmie is furry shy, so will be furry cross wif us for doing this - no treats for us tonight!

2. Our Meowmie has two degrees from uni-ma-versity . . . . one in Pharmacy and one in English and History, but she doesn't use efur of dem.

3. To earn colored papers to pay for our fuds, she werks at da hospytal for beans doing da typing and stuffs.

4. Wot she'd really lyk to be doing is tayking da photos of fings - she sure taykes a lot of photos of us! Not all of dem gud ones!

5. Sshh, but Meowmie says she has da syk brain - dat it doesn't werk rite and maykes her sad all da tyme, but dat she's getting better after lots of pills and talking, and dat it's impurrtant dat people know dis about her so dat if dey haf da syk brains too dey mite get help. Purrsonally we don't see what she's got to be sad about cos she's got da three best poodins in da werld!

6. Meowmie's favurite fud at da moment is da filled, iced, glazed donuts from da new bakery shop. She's trying furry hard not to eat too many so her belly doesn't get as saggy as Muffin's (Ebbie sez: Too late!)

7. Meowmie's grandad is furry furry old - 90 human years, if he were a poodin he wud be . . . well, at da bridge probably!

8. If Meowmie were a poodin she wud only be four years old, whych maykes Ebbie older dan her, so we fink Ebbie shud be in charge from now on.

9. Meowmie lykes to tease people, espeshually her werkmates, but sumtimes people (espheshully da doctors) don't appreciate her sense of humor. Which only maykes her tease dem more. Lyke wen she teases day baby bean doctor about eating a meat pie whych is bad fur him.

10. Meowmie lyks to knit . . . and knit . . . and knit . . . only she does it wif big long sticks and string instead of her claws. We lyke to help Meowmie knit. I (Minxy) am allowed to sit on her lap while she knits cos I am a good poodin and don't attack da wool and she runs it between my ears. Muffin is NOT allowed to help Meowmie knit cos she chews and biteys the wool until it breaks and dat maykes Meowmie cross!

11. Meowmie's fafurritest posession is her laptop computey. Efun if she hasn't paid for it yet.

12. Four tymes a week Meowme meets wif ofur beans to go for a walk to get sum exercise - we don't know why she does this wen all she has to do is run through da woods ofur da road and pounce fings.

13. Meowmie has four brofurs and sisfurs (two of each) and nine (we fink - she loses count) nephews and nieces . . plus two step nephews (we don't know why she wants to step on her nepwhews efur).

Hmmm, we not sure Meowmie is furry interesting! Next week we do da list about us again cos we is more fun!

A note from Ebbie

Ebbie sez: Thank you to the poodins who said I looked cute in my picture - but could you try not to tell Meowmie that? Because I want her to think I'm am grumpy and fierce and will put the bitey on her. That way I can get away with anything I want, including the bitey, because she feels sorry for me cos I've had "a hard life". I haven't, not really - she just feels guilty that first she moved out of home and left me behind with her Mum, then I had to move with her Mum and grandad to a new home, and afterall that when her Mum and grandad went into a rest home and I had to come and move here with her and Muffin and Minx, and then Ivory, my big sisfur ran away and went to the bridge. Really, it hasn't been that bad - I've always had lots of food and love and warm places to sleep. I do miss Granny (Meowmie's Mum - that's her cardigan I'm sleeping under, it was my favorite and I used to fight her for it and try and get in it when she was wearing it, only Meowmie won't let me have it anymore since Granny died) cos she used to give me lots of cuddles, especially the special ones in the morning where I hopped on her lap and made her hold my back foot just *so* . . . and I miss Grandad cos he's real old and doesn't move much and I could sleep on his lap ALL DAY . . . and I miss Ivory cos she was good to pounce on . . but Minx and Muffin are pretty good to terrorise too. And I found new friends at Meowmie's house - I just invited myself in to visit the neighbours and now I spend all day with them and put the bitey on them if they do something I don't like and they let me get away with it too.

So yes - remember, I am a FIERCE LIONESS who will put the BITEY ON YOU! (Heheheh).

Minxy sez: Poppy, I wud lyk to come and lif wif you - we cud be two blue poodin's togefur and I fink our furs wud bof be furry soft and your Mommy wud lyk to cuddle us bof a lot and I bet she wudn't DROP WINDOWS on us!

Bad Meowmie Monday, by Minxy

Dear Cats on da Blogsphere,

Dis is Minxy here, asking dat if anyone has room for anofur poodin, dat dey let me know so dat I can move in wif dem. Cos Meowmie is a FURRY BAD Meowmie and DROPPED A WINDOW ON ME and it BROKED! ON ME!

I is a furry well behaved poodin, wif soft blue furs, and I don't eat much, altho I haf to haf the special tummy fud so I don't puke it up. I is litter box trained, altho sumtimes I go in da barftub cos I don't lyke sharing da box wif Muffin. I is used to going inside and outside, tho I don't fink I wud mind being an inside only poodin, speshully if it was cold or dere was ky-oat-ees or snaykes. I like to haf morning and bedtyme cuddles in bed wif you, and I talk a lot. Sumtimes I a little obsessive compulsive but Meowmie says dat is part of my charm. So if you haf a nyce home to offur me where I won't get WINDOWS DROPPED ON MY HEAD please let me know.

Lots of luff,


(Meowmie's note: I did NOT drop a window on Minxy . . . at least not on purpose. What happened was I've been having trouble getting the front door open and shut because the wood as swollen with all the rain we've had. I let Minx outside on Sunday, and she sat on the doorstep looking at the rain in disgust, while I tried to get the door shut. Unfortunately I was a bit exuberant with my kicking and the glass in the front door - which is so old (like thirty years) that it wasn't safety glas - couldn't take all the kicking and twisting and tension and it shatter, a largish bit falling on to the doorstep where Minx was I know she was sat there as it shattered, because I saw her hightail it out of there, but I don't think the glass actually hit her - I think she dashed off as soon as she heard the crack, and it landed after she'd moved. That's what I hope anyway. In any case I was very worried about her as at that point the door was well and truly jammed and I couldn't get out to find her - but once the landlord had unjammed it and I found my little blue brat cat I looked her all over and she's fine - not a scratch on her. Well, at least none that Ebbie didn't put there. The front door is fixed now with new safety glass and wood shaven off the edges so it opens and shuts, but I do feel like a bad cat mom . . . but I'm still not letting Minx go live anywhere else. Teehee.)

The Adventures of Saxon the Mighty Coon Kitten!

Floofy Friday

Tonight Meowmie tuk her old laptop out to her sisfur's place so her sisfur cud use it. While she was dere, Meowmie got to play wif our cousin, Saxon, the Maine Coon kitten, and she tuk sum pickchurs too, so today we get to do FLOOFY FRIDAY! (When she got home, I sniffed her allll ofur, cos Saxon left some gud sniffs!) Meowmie also tuk sum video, but she has to werk owt how to edit it all togefur and mayke it nice and then how to post it to Youtube and linky it here and stuffs so she do that tomorrow. Maybe we haf "Saxon Saturday" altho Muffin wanted "Spotty Saturday" to show off da two whole spots on her nose!

But here are sum pickchurs of our gorgeous cousin - we fink he's going to grow up to be a furry handsome mancat.

We fink he luks furry funny in dis pickchur - lyk his face is all mutayted or sumfing!!

Dis is our furry old cousin, Spice - Spice is almost sixteen years old! I is only three, so sixteen is furry old indeed! She has no teef, and rickety hips, and Meowmie says she's a bit senile, but apart from dat is in gud nick. She's getting on pretty well wif Saxon and only hisses at him if he comes too near and tries to pounce her. If he is a gud kitten and is quiet she will let him sleep near her! Spice used to have a sisfur called Sugar - dey were rescued togefur walking down a furry busy motorway! Sugar had to go to da bridge a year or two ago and Spice lukked for her for days and days and days which is furry sad. I not sure I wud luk for Muffin for furry long . . . but I mite miss her a little bit. I wud definitely luk for Ebbie - just to mayke sure she wasn't coming bak to put da bitey on me!!

Thursday Thirteen, by Minx

Muffin isn't talking to Meowmie anymore cos Meowmie laffed at her. Muffin was running down the path to meet Meowmie when she gotted home frum werk, and Muffn's belly was hanging down and swinging side to side like a pendulum and Meowmie laffed and laffed and laffed at Muffin's saggy baggy belly. Poor Muffin! She not really dat fat - da rest of her is all muscly, not fat - just that bit of her where she had her big girl operation is all flabby. No wunder she doesn't lyk it touched! I don't haf a saggy belly lyk dat - I is lucky - and Ebbie doesn't really efur, although she has furry long furs dat grew bak after her big girl surgery. I don't want to haf a belly lyk dat efur, so I make dis list of fings I will do so I don't get a saggy baggy belly!

Thirteen Things dat I wil do to keep my belly svelte, by Minx

1. Not eat all da fuds, lyk Muffin, who goes to effurybody's bowl if she can . . . except if Meowmie is feeding us stinky gudness den I eat all I can.

2. Run around lots and lots so I stay fit - I especially run up and down da house lyk a maniac chasing Muffin, cos dat gifs da best werk out.

3. Rabbit kick da armchair, cos dat maykes me curl ofur into a 'crunch' and dat werks da abdominals.

4. Do my pilates stretching - espheshully da one at lets me lick my bum.

5. Get lots of belly rubs from Meowmie, cos dat massages my tummy and keeps da muscles nice and toned.

6. Do more big tall long stretches by scratching at fings lot - lyk da scratching post, and da front door when I want in or owt, and any door dat is closed, and da lytter box and stufs lyk dat.

7. Do air robicks in frunt of da telly . . . efun tho Mewomie says I'm not allowed to paw at da pickchur box screen.

8. Keep my self dry - cos fur stretches when it's wet . . . or is dat wool. (Uh oh, wait . . . Meowmie says that fings generally shrink when you wash dem den put dem in da clothes dryer. Do you fink I shud wash my furs and put it in da dryer so it shrinks and is nice and tight?).

9. Take my wurm tablets so I don't get little visitors in my tummy dat mayke it stretch.

10. Maybe I go to Dr. Daisy for plastic surgeries and haf a tummy tuck (Maybe I let her try it out on Muffin first - Muffin needs it more after all).

11. Meowmie says that rubbing vitamin E cream on ur belly skin can mayke it more elaystic . . . but why would you want cream ON ur belly rafur dan IN your belly, ad wudn't it mayke your furs all sticky?

12. Meowmie also says dat as well as haffing a tummy tuk wif Dr. Daisy, I cud haf liposuction too. I hope dat Daisy knows wot dat is cos I don't.

13. Lastly, I fink dat the easiest fing to do would be to just order a new suit of furs dat is one or two sizes smaller. Maybe I go for long furs dis tyme!

In reply to da comments on my Werdless Wednesday post:

Abby: I haf a tail, but Meowmie often threatens to rename me Manxy and chop my tail off when I am naughty. She also calls me Mincy sumtymes cos she says if I don't behave I will be mince meat. And sumtymes she just calls me her animated pair of furry slippers. Sumtymes I wunder if Meowmie actually lufs me!

Daisy and Muffinmidi: I glad you lyk da photo - I call dat luk "Green Steel" lyk da man on "Zoolander" had "Blue Steel". I fink maybe I wudn't do half bad as a super model, but Meowmie won't buy me da clothes for it!

Muffin is a rocking girl blogger and Tummy Tuesday

A furry long time ago, Poppy Q (Minx: Who is a furry beyootyful poodin, especially cos of her nice gray furs lyk myne), nominated me for a Rocking Girl Blogger award! I am furry furry honored by this, and furry cross wif Meowmie for deleting my paw print from her lappy computer so I couldn't log on to da blogosphere.

I is a Rocking Girl Blogger! Fanks, Poppy Q!

Of course, I can't accept an award wifout nominating ofur gurrl bloggers - I a bit layte, so dese girl poodins have prolly already been nominated, but I nominate dem again cos dey is so special!

So I nominate:

1. Daisy da Curly Cat cos she is my inspiration and taught me dat I can do anyfing I want including being a police poodin.

2. Pixie - cos she puts up with Daisy! No, just kidding - cos she deals wif a very difficult illness and still keeps her spirits up. And she eats nannas! Meowmie's friend's woofy eats nannas but I nefur herd of a cat eating nannas! TOO COOL!

3. Honey P. Sunshine cos we fink he name is furry lovely and so is her furs.

4. Lilly Lu, cos she is a furry brave poodin who came fru a furry difficult illness dat had me and Minx and Meowmie in TEARS - we read her journal EFFURRY day before we efun got her own, purraying and purraying dat she wud make it, and she did!

Da ofur fing I post about today is TUMMY TUESDAY! Yes, Meowmie tuk more tummy pickchurs. I just hope dese don't effect my chances to get into da police force and be a police poodin. Do you fink dey will mind dat I was a pin up gurrl?

Meowmie wants me to tell you dat she wasn't forcing me to show her tummy, but I not so sure! Isn't dat exploytashun??
Exploytashun or not, I try to put da bitey on her anyway - NOONE GETS TO SEE MY TUMMY!

I fink I bak in Meowmie's gud buks . . .

I fink dat Meowmie isn't cross wif me anymore - at least she let me on da innerweb tonite, and she keeps saying dat I is too thin and dat she needs to gif me speshul fuds to build me up in da cold wevver. So she been sneakin' me kitten fud and den sum Ostrich minse (Ostrich is a BIG BURD dat not efun Muffin cud catch) to eat when da ofur cats aren't inside. I don't fink I is too thin - I is just not fat like Muffin (shhhh, don't tell Muffin I said dat) and I is furry slinky and slim. But I not going to complayn - Ostrich mince is YUMMY and kitten fud isn't bad efur!!

Today I do da Thursday Thirteen - Thirteen fings I did while I was in disgrace:

1. Pondered da errors of my ways (I cudn't find any - lukkin at da man cat didn't HURT anyone. If da man cats didn't want me lukking at dere hoohas dey shudn't put pikchurs of dere hoohas on da innerwebs).

2. Stole Ebbie's sleeping spot - all da tyme!

3. Slept on Meowmie's hip so she cudn't get good sleeps.

4. Clymbed into bed wif her and snuggled down so dat when she lukked at me under da covers she sayd I lukked like a litte gray alien. I nefur seen a gray alien but I sure I luk like a gray cat, not an alien.

5. Mayde her fink I was all skinny and starved.

6. Ate da yummy stinky gudness she bought me to try bild me up (Teehee).

7. Slept a lot cos my belly was furry furry full . . . mmmmmmm, full belly . . .

8. Pounced Muffin (but den I ALWAYS pounce Muffin).

9. Peed in da baff tub to protest not being allowed on the innernet.

10. Tried to sneak on da innernet when Meowmie wasn't lukking - it didn't werk.

11. Started refusing to eat my kibble unless it is put up on da kitchen chair away from Ebbie.

12. Turned Mum's fevver duster into da BEST CAT TOY EVVAR!

13. Sulked cos Muffin stole da BEST CAT TOY EVVAR off me - she carries it round in her mouf, efun tho it bigger dan she is!

I hope I bak for gud now - and I hope dat tomorrow I have sum good pickchurs for you. Meowmie tuk sum of Muffin's tummy but I don't fink she tuk any of me cos I was in disgrace.
