I stucked my tongue out today because it is SNOWING! I kind of likes it. But we do not go outside when it is cold. I may go outside later if I can find my purple sweater to wear.
We are going to be doing many things this week. Number One, we are going to PUT UP THE CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS! And I tell you what kitties, this is the First Year that we are going to have our New Year's Tree! (A New Years Tree is almost exactly like a Christmas Tree only for 1/2-Russian kitties.) It is going to be Fake but I think still very eggsiting. I have never seed one before. Also, this evening Mommie is going to go get Figaro's Guppies. They are his present for doing so good in the Petsmart contest. I think she will just get 2 guppies right now, but for Christmas we are going to get a few more to make a nice School of guppies. Lot of things going on this Howliday Seezon!!! :)
PS, I can't wait for my friend Hello's present to arrival!!!
Today I want to share about a mail that we sended to our friends Hello and Mimmy. It is their birthday this month..and it is their BIRTHday gift! Lookit, I am very interested to see what it is. I know what it is, but that will not be revealed to effuryone else until it is received by our friendz!!!
Do you see what we wrote on the box???
Happy Birfday, Hello and Mimmy! We
PS - Figaro was Very Bad today and went #1 on daddy's clothes in the bedroom. I thinked it is funny, they had to be washified. He did that because he did not want to do his business in the toilet training setup in the bathroom.
Labels: Figaro is bad
Yesterday our fambly went and early-voted for the elections. We gotted to keep Mommie's sticker because we are still 1 years of old and also kitties cannot vote. Here is Figaro wearing our voting sticker on his patriotic t-shirt (it says "Red White 'n Cute").
I basically told Mommie who we should vote for so she did that. As a kitty I belief in less wars, more temptashuns, saving the environments, health cares for effurryone, and lots of cuddle times. (Guess who we votid for...)
Effuryone, get out theres and vote!!!
PS, Whoah check out Figaro's tail in this picshur.
This weekend was Very Important. Our Uncle S. came over and took a lot of photos of us with his camera. He is a Professional Photographer, that is one of his many talentings. We are going to make special cards to give out to the people that Figaro visits as part of his Therapy Kitty-ness, and so the photos have to be Extra Good (and they are!).
Here is the two of us sitting on our Training Podiums. This is where we train to give High Fives and Sit Ups, and Twirls and Pick Ups. We learn more every week. We like to go sit on our podiums because when we Practice our tricks we get a lot of Temptashions!!!
This week our mommie is in a business trip so our Uncle S. is taking cared of us. He is very very nice and plays with us and feeds us everything we wants. Mommie said as a joke that we have to get weighted before she leaves and when she gets back, because our vacationings with Uncle S. is like a all-you-can-eat buffets. But she was only kidding. She wants us to have good times.
We are happy to get an email from Alley Cat Allies that today is Feral Cats Day. I personally spend $8 every month automatically to support those feral cats!!! Because of that, I have been getting many mails just for me. The ASPCA usually sends me mails. I am awaiting to be sent a credit card application very soon! It is funny how I gotted on the mailing list and get my own mails, sometimes I get more junk mails than my mommy!!
BUT Figaro did get $50 from the PetSmart for being a top 10 finalist last month. Because of that, Mommy said we can get a good present. Our fishies are "feral" because they are outside in the pond. But they cannot stay in there in the winter because it will freeze to a solid block since it is only 2 feet of deep. So the fishies are coming inside. At first, they were going to go in a tupperware far away in the off-limits room. But since Figaro got his moneys, he decided to buy an AQUARIUM for the fishies. This means that the aquarium will be in the living-room, and mommie said as long as there is a tight lid on it we can put it on kitty-eye level. This will be GREAT ENTERTAINMENT for this winter!!! I am very eggsited. Do you see the photo of our fishie? That one is called Milton. Where should we get our aquarium? Fig is looking for it on the interwebs.
I think it is NOT the last thing we are helping make for that blurpy baby. He is loved a lots and lots.
Lookit the outfit that my friend Lexie (a woofie) is letting me borrow for halloweens! It is too big on her this year since last year she was a puppy. Don't I look cute?
I am a little bumble bee! My mommie thinks maybe she will dress up matching like a bumble bee with me too. BUT I will not be going to any parties, only handing out candies.
Figaro is going to be Pooh but his outfit is not ready, mommie is knitting it.
Our toilet training has been going great! We are now on the inter-amber disk of the LitterKwitter. FINALLY Figaro is being good. We have been on inter-amber for exactly 1 week. Figaro has had ZERO accidents. (I do not even discuss myself but of course I had zero accidents too...)
Mommie thinks we will be moving on to the next step (amber) disk in 3 more weeks. She decided we should take 1 month on every step. We will probably have to spend some time on amber over inter-amber, like we did interamber over red. The good news is, we are progressing!!! (slowly..) Also, almost every time Figaro does a #1, he goes directly in the toilet, and all we has to do is flush!!! However when I use the toilet, I go on the edge of the disk and it still has to be cleaned, but that is because I am practicing proper positioning on the seat.
However we will be not using the system for 2 whole weeks in October, 1 week when the parents are at a conference, and another whole week when we are having a guest visiting us.
Mommie is helping to plan a shower for a little human boy who will be borned in December. Here is the centerpiece she maked tonight. It has diapers and onesies and bibs and pants and shirts and burpy cloths. I hope that baby will be very burpy because it has got at least 15 burpy cloths! The bottom layer is all diapers and the next layer is all onesies and shirts, and the third layer is all burpy cloths and the top is some little shoesies.
If I do says so myself, she did a good job! I did not get to help because kitties are not allowed to play with ribbons.
The new blurpy baby will be borned to a family with already 2 kitties, a boy and girl kitty.
WOW! Mommie is very eggsited tonight. Figaro made a #1 business in the inter-amber disk of the LitterKwitter system! We did not think this would ever happen. The bestest part is, he just went without any complaindering! We have had the LitterKwitter since May 5. We were on the red disk for a very long time, and then we were on the Red disk underneath of the inter-amber disk for another month and a halfs (this is a pain to clean, 2 disks everytime with 2 kitties). About 2 weeks ago, if Mommie remembered, she took out the red disk for me since I am a big girl and can easily easily use the inter-amber disk on my own. However, Figaro is very resistful. Remember that we started a homemade toilet training system in January!
My brother Figaro got selected as a Finalist in the PetSmart Just a Buck contest. Here are 13 reasons you better go vote for him!!! CLICK HERE TO VOTE he is Cat#4.
1. He is a THERAPY CAT and visits nursing homes and kiddies who are sad or need to learns to read, soon he will visit hospitals
2. He looks very silly and funny in this video - brothers are a constant source of entertainments
3. He does funny things to the parents like sheds on them and licks daddie's hair, which is funny for them too
4. He updates his site always about his therapy cat adventures for the world to read about him and get inspired
5. He is the reason I was finally able to get my KITTY STROLLER
6. He likes to sleep by me and keep me warm when it is cold outside
7. He is good at begging mommie to let us go outside so she finally does and then we both gets to go
8. He sheds more than me so he is always getting brushed which means there is less time for Veronica-brushings! (I do not like brushings!)
9. If mommie has some buttered bread or ice creams for us, Figaro always lets me have his share because he is only a carni-vore. It is very nice.
10. He has very good toe tufts
11. He has a great tummy even though he is not a tuxie he cannot show off his tuxie tummy
12. he gotted rescued from the animal shelter and he is very happy to be my brother!!
13. He is in the Mancat club!
I like to sit on the bar chair while Mommie cooks up something nice, and she gives me a tiny bits of the foods if I ask sweetly AND don't go on the countertop. Here are the 13 things I likes to eat that I bet other cats do not.
I normally do not like showers because I do not like to get wet but we really liked the Perseid Shower. My mommie woke up at 4 AM and of course I was already awakened, and she took me outside and we saw FOUR shooting stars. That is more than how old I am which is 1 and one-fifth years old. I very much like to go outside especially at 4 in the morning. After we got back in I thought we were going to get fed but that was too early so I had to wait impatiently until it actually got light outside for breakfast!
Also. Here are some updates about our toilet training. We are now using the inter-amber disk with the red disk underneath of it for Figaro. Strangely it is very hard for him to adjust to it. He really does not like to go so now he is only doing the #1 two times per day or even 1 time. Mommy has to make him. On the other hand, I am only using the inter-amber disk without the red disk underneath. This is too easy for me. If I was the only one in training, I would be moved up to amber right now! But we are going verrry slowly so Figaro will not have any accidents. He ALMOST had an accident on mommie's important files in the den, but she caught him scritching around and stuck him on the toilet!!
Remember when we said Figaro will be getting a birthday present from Uncle S. because of his $10 gift card? Well today I helped him pick out his present on the internets.
Here is what we are getting. There are a lot of mice because that is our favorite. Also - all the things we are getting is organic and natural. This is very good for the environment, better than our other miceys which are not organic or natural but we play with all of them anyways. They are from Whisker City. We gotted him some Wool Mice (pictured on the left), some Sisal Feathered Mice, and a set of small organic mice. In total I thinks we gotted like 9 mices for only $10.
That is pretty much a very good deal. I helped Figaro find a good deal of course. When they arrrive we are going to show pictures of us playing with them. I hopes they come before parents leaves on vacation so we can get them to help us postify everything on the internets.
If you can click on the pic-shur you can see the closeups of our new window curtains. They are very beauuu-tiful.
All I needs is a nice soft microfiber throw in dark purple to match the curtains. Where shall I buys it? I did not see one anywheres.
In our old hometown where mommie and our Cousin Missy (she doesn't blog) useded to live, we heared about a very sad story about a kitty. It gotted swinged around by its tail and died! :( There is not much informations but you can read about it here. Poor kitty...I know its parents must be very sad about this. I am very sad even though I did not knowed that kitty.
Today I am going to tell you about the fishies who live in our backyard pond. Figaro was Very Bad today and tried to nom nom one of them when he was outside watching the pond. Mommie ran out real quick and told him this is Not Allowed.
Here are the fishies. There are five of them. We named them yesterday with good solid names which should help them in the future in case they want to Run for Office or do something else important like that.
Our favorite is Milton. He is named after Milton Friedman, a famous econ-omist. He is our favorite because he swims around kind of slow and we can see him even from inside the house! He is a fintail fishie who is orange.
The next one in the pictures is Samuelson. Samuelson is just a regular old golfish. He is named after Paul Samuelson. His most twinn-iest brother is Bazerman. Bazerman and Samuelson are a lot alike. Bazerman is named after Max H. Bazerman.
The last photograph is of all the fishies waaay at the bottom of the pond. You can see the other two fishies who I did not discuss yet. The black and white and red spotted one is a Shubunkin. He was verry expensive and costed $1.88. Actually Milton was that price too. The others were only Twenty Eight Cents. But I digresses. Anyway, our Shubunkin is named John Nash. Finally, the little white one waay on the bottom, he is named Vernon after Vernon Smith. We are not big fans of Vernon though because he is almost always hiding. The most friendly are Milton and Samuelson.
Do you like them?
thanks for the squillions of good wishes for Figaro and mombean's birthday! We were very excited to get so many well wishings.
And now...here are the photos from our KITTY STROLLER!
Dadbean got us the Pet Gear AT3 in blue. This is a very good model. I can say right now that it handles well and is a very smooth ride. Figaro went for a very long walk in it, and I went for a shorter walk. It was pretty pretty good. I am reviewing the stroller in my reviews page.
Figaro also just got a call from the Nursing Home and he will be visiting it (in his stroller!) on August 11th. He is very pumped about that!
Hello kittays! Welcome to our partay to officially make Figaro a MANCAT! He has been awaiting this day a long time. We are only 1/4 Jewish, but if we was 1/2 at least Jewish we would be having a cat-mitzvah by now!
Today the dadbean of the mombean calleded her up and asked her if we gotted our KITTY STROLLER yet. But he did not knowed about the strollering since mommie did not wanted to look weird in front of our extended families.
Today mommie stayed home with us and we gotted our laptop back in the mails. It appears fixed. They replace the motherboard and the harddrive. I thinked that is almost a brand new computer now!
And...we thinked our KITTY STROLLER camed! The DHL man deliverd it. But...it was not the kitty stroller. They accidentaly sended us the DOGGIE CRATE! It is not the same. But it is the same color. Dadbean calleded them and they said they is sorry and are going to ship out the kitty stroller RIGHT AWAY and we will be sending back our doggie crate! So...this means we knows fuurrr shure we will be getting the stroller!!
Also, today I sended mommie to the store for a present for Figaro from me. I am not going to tell you what it is though because that will ruins the surrprise!
Happy fiiirrriday everyone!
Kitty stroller is set to arrive on the 28th (IF we are getting it, we are not for sures.) Dadbean is getting it for mommie and us for her BIRFday. BUT...dadbean is always forgetting her birfday is on the 28, he thinks it is on the 27!! This year we will lets him THINK that....so we can have early stroller!!!!!!
Lately we have been very bored kitties. Our laptop is finally set to come back this week sometimes. So we will be able to bloggify more often. But now mommie is at work ALL DAY all the days. She cannot works from home anymore because she has the students that come to her office and asks questions.
But once we get a stroller at least we will be ables to go with her on walkies to spend more time together!!!! I am thrillified!
Yesterday we meeted our new neighbors who are going to build a house next to our house, right next to it for the first time evers. They meeted us because we were out on the back porch hanging out and watching the pond. They said they do not haves any pets but they may get one. We hopes they do not get a woofie in case he is a scary kind!
We have many BIRTHDAYS coming up this month. First, it will be dadbean's birthday on the 19th. Then, it will be our great-grandpabean's birthday on the 20th. Then, it will be FIGARO's birthday on the 22nd. THEN, it will be mombean's birthay on the 28th! What a lotta birthdays!
