I've Been Insulted and Happy Thanksgiving Early

Hi Pals,

I've been insulted.  Can you believe it - I've been insulted by my very own staff!   

M is now telling me I'm as fat as this turkey and I'd be very tasty!  How can she possibly compare this to me?

This is me helping M at night on the puter and patrolling the backyard at the same time.  Very important job!

Now do I look anything like that turkey above?

I think M needs her head examined cuz she's coo koo!

I'll try to forgive her because it is, afterall, Thanksgiving, and I am very thankful for my warm, cozy home and loving staff.   But she'd better be careful cuz my patience only goes so far.

I am very thankful for all my friends in the Blogosphere and on Twitter.  You guys are all the best and are always there for me if something bad happens.   I just love all of you and so does M  (At least that we agree on.)

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you and your family!

 Happy Veterans Day Everyone,

Do you know a veteran?   I would guess we all know at least one, if not more.   I do - my favorite #1 person was in the Korean War - well he was in Korea right after the war was supposedly over.   But dad says there was still plenty of shooting going on and one had to be careful with where they went.   Supposedly the war was over tho, which made M feel good.

We need to remember all veterans because without them fighting for us in this country, we probably wouldn't have many of the freedoms we now enjoy.   I think it's too bad we have to ever have wars and need men and women to protect us.   Why can't everyone be more like a cat - settle our differences with a few hisses and maybe a whomp  or two across he nose.   Just establish our territories and leave each other alone - be respectful to the other's territory.   Sigh!  

Until that happens, I guess we'll always need men and women to protect us so we keep our freedoms.,  

So veterans, enjoy your special day ----- you deserve every minute of it and we appreciate all you have done for us.

The Merry Chase Is On!

Hi Pals,

Oomans are really stupid sometimes you know!   Yesterday I was minding my own business, thinking about taking another nap, so I curled up on the sofa.  But you know how it is, we kitties always sleep with one eye open and both ears working overtime.  D was gone off to a place he calls exercise and M was just hanging out.

All of  a sudden I heard clattering on the wall that was loud enough to wake the biggest sleeping elephant.,   Now being of a suspicious nature, of course I had to come out to see what was going on.   Well, human M thought she would be sneaky and hauled up the PTU and set it on the table.   This is not good because the PTU means I'm going somewhere and it won't be fun either.

When D came home, I took off like a shot in the dark, hid under the center of a queen-sized bed and would not budge.   Then one of them had the nerve to poke the cane monster  under the bed at me.     I took off again and hid in the closet with a two-way escape  hatch.  he he  I was so sure I had them there.   If they came at me from one side, I'd just shoot out the other. which I did try.   But D was waiting for me by the door and next thing I know I'm in the jail box being hauled off to the V.E.T. again - something about my annual check up.  
Well pals, I tried to make this the most miserable trip ever for my oomans.   I refused to look at either one of  them or even at the v.e.t. lady.  I sang as loud as I could in the car so I'd hurt their ears.   I totally ignored them and turned my head away.    Did they really think that I would NOT make them PAY for what they did to me!!    he he and I  got the last laugh because  M tried to take a picture, but it seems the flashy box thing is broke!  YAY!  She said the button is pushed down already and won't come back up to open the lens - whatever!

I heard M telling the v.e.t. lady tho that I  did lead them on a merry chase - something about they are getting too old to have to chase me.  (ha ha - of course I led them on a  merry chase - that's my job and I'm not going to the v.e.t. place willingly!)

Until next time pals,

Doba Nobis Pacem

Dona Nobis Pacem

In this house, we've always loved the song "Let There Be Peace On Earth" written by  Jill Jackson Miller and Sy Miller, written in 1955.

"Let There Be Peace on Earth and let it begin with me.
Let There Be Peace on Earth, the peace that was meant to be!
With God as our Father, brothers all are we.
Let me walk with my brother in perfect harmony.

Let peace begin with me. Let this be the moment now.

With ev'ry breath I take, let this be my solemn vow;
To take each moment and live each moment in peace eternally!
Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me!"

Peace be with you pals,

Thankful Thursday

Kitty Jamie with his new Mom (@MizzBassie's mom also
Hi Pals,  

WOW - I have so much to be thankful for on this Thankful Thursday.

I'm so thankful that we got abandoned kitty Jamie to his new home in Hollywood Florida and on time at that - even with a hurricane passing by the day before the caravan left.  It was such an exciting Sunday on Twitter.  And you should have heard (or seen) the cheers go up when Dorian tweeted that, @MizzBassie's human   had Jamie.  Dorian tweeted the above picture.  It brought tears to M's eyes and also the the human eyes of many of my pals.  @MizzBassie has tweeted several times that Jamie is doing well, and she has also sent many pictures showing Jamie in the  same picture with one or more of her other kitties. She said they are establishing their ruling order with only a few hisses and growls, but no big fights to date.   Like several of us already knew, Jamie is a very laid back kitty and doesn't get riled up easily.  I just know he's going to fit into that family very well.  Once again, thank you to everyone involved in finding Jamie a new home or getting Jamie to his new home, and special thanks to MizzBassie's human for taking him.    Our animal group rocks  both on Twitter and also the blogosphere.  We did it  again!

It's really been quite a week hasn't it.  I'm very thankful that nasty hurricane is over.   The next morning we were kept busy checking in with our friends on Twitter that live in the hurricane area, making sure everyone was okay.  We will be very Thankful if we never see another hurricane like that again - ever!

I've joined the Thankful Thursday blog post run by @PepiSmartDog.  To join go over and say hi to Pepi and hop  on board.

Until next time,
