This is not a "Wordless Wednesday" because a Few Good Cats reminded me that Friday is my Gotcha Day! Yep, 18 years ago Friday, my Mom and my human sister went to the Humane Society (Animal Shelter) and got me and brought me to my forever home. This has been a very fabulous place for me to live.

My Mom and the guy are leaving on the 5th to go to my human sister's wedding so I guess I have to prod my Mom in all the preparations for that to still have a good Gotcha party for me! Check back on Friday to see what's happening here!

Clean Toesie Tuesday

It's raining today, but I guess I can't complain, we have just had so many beautiful warm, summer-like days! Mom says we need some rain for the garden so the flowers can grow.

Guess I'd better clean up my toes, I see today is a clean toesies day.

If she's going to follow me around with that flashy box, I will just hide my head!

Mancat Monday

Yep, this new furniture is ok. Don't I look so Mancatly sitting on it?

I got my badge for the M-Cat's Club, so now I am offishully a member.

Easy on a Sunday

My Mom and the guy got some new wicker furniture for the porch. I listened to them ooohhh and aaahhh over it until it wore me out.

When they went out to sit on it, I just decided to lie down on the porch floor and take a quick nap (since they wore me out so much.) One of these days, I'll figure out how to get up on that new furniture and then I can REALLY nap!

When they get back from my human sister's wedding, they're going to have something called a "Construction Crew" come out and re-do the porch. I guess the foundation is old and the porch is falling into the ground (I thought things felt a bit slanted out there.) They're getting new windows and everything. I'll have to report on the work when it begins mid-May.

I want to thank everyone who voted for me and Grady in the Kitty Fight Club, we only lost to Cody by a couple points so I guess we didn't do too badly. Congrats to Cody, she sure put up a good fight. And, I'm sure it was a tough decision for everyone to make!

National Hairball Awareness Day - Friday April 24, 2009

The National Hairball Awareness Day is Friday, April 24, 2009. Romeo is sponsoring a "Who's Your Favorite Furball Contest" on his blog. Click his name above, or the link to the right to go to his blog page to enter.

The guy with gray hair and a beard who's married to Mom and lives here says I'm just one big fur ball. I think I am just floofy.

Bye for now...

Toesie Tuesday

Mom: Rusty! Who got those wet, dirty pawprints on the rug?

Rusty: Does she really think it was me?

Rusty: Guess I'd better just be good and get them clean before she sees them.

Easy on a Sunday Morning

After all the activity in the yard yesterday, I think a quiet way for me to spend my Sunday morning is with snooze on my boogie-mat.

Vote for me and Grady in The Kitty Fight QF #2. I think we were pretty cute. I hope you do too!

Caturday In the Yard

Today we spent a lot of time in the yard. Mom finally got out and started cleaning up the garden. Me I spent some time in my favorite pursuits.

Here I am checking out who's been around marking my bushes. It's probably those Evil Intruder Kitties from across the street, although I haven't seen many of them around lately...

Ahhhh, now a nibble of the grass in the yard. Mom doesn't like me munching the grass because sometimes it makes me hurl and then she has to clean it up.

And the catnip. My it looks like it's coming up just fine...

Here's some mint that weathered fine over the winter. Mom says she's not real surprised at that since she said that mint is in the catnip family and catnip is pretty hardy and grows like a weed. (Hrmph, my catnip is NOT a weed! It's good!)

Mancat Monday

You know, us mancats have to keep a close eye on our neighborhoods and I have a great spot in front of the big window wall to look out.

I'll keep watching to make sure those Evil Intruder Kitties from across the street don't come over here into MY territory!

Easter Bunny Concerns

Is the Easter Bunny supposed to have such BIG TEETH?

Happy Easter!

Easy on a Sunday - Finally Spring!

Finally, I have a flower in the garden! Mom says it's a croakus. What a silly name, it doesn't look like it croaked to me. It looks good!

And, the catnip is coming up pretty good now. I can't wait until it gets taller and I can sniff it and rub my body in it.

And here's some two-lips. Don't tell Mom, but I don't see any lips there. Another silly name for a flower. This one's not bloomed yet, but Mom says it will be soon.

Spring is finally here! Yippee! I've got to get Mom busy cleaning things up in the yard now.

Thankful Thursday

Mom went to that Coskoe place and got a new supply of whipped cream.

Here I am waiting for her to shake the can and put some in a bowl for me.

Here it is! Hurry Mom, I want it now! I can't wait!

Here's my tummy, I especially like it rubbed!

Mancat Monday

Let me tell you. I can't believe what's happening outside right now. It's April for cripes sake! I'm supposed to be getting flowers, not this cruddy white stuff! Boy, if anything will make an old guy grumpy, this sure will!

Look at what is out my window right now!

Enough already!

Easy on a Sunday...

I'm exhausted. Mom said the shower thing was a success. (I guess they all got clean.) Mom says no, they had lots of fun and played some games (in a shower?????) Mom said she saw the lady with yellow hair that lives with the Island Cats. She didn't come over to see me, though. My human sister's friend and her friend came over after. They all talked and laughed and petted me. It was nice, I like to be petted. I also got some ham, they had some left over from the shower party. Yum!

But now, I'm so tired today. Too much excitement for me so I think I'll just spend the day sleeping.

Oh, I just woke up for a bit to check out the blogs. In all the commotion of the shower thing, I forgot all about being highlighted in the "High Five Sunday" at Zoolatry.

Thanks you guys!

Finally Friday! Finally!

I'm so glad today's Friday. Tomorrow is the wedding shower thing for my human sister and Mom has just been sooooo busy getting things ready for it, that she just hasn't had a lot of time for helping me blog. I still don't understand this shower thing. She's got food and presents, don't you just need soap and a towel? Whatever... I'll be glad when this is all over with.

My human sister will be here later today and then they'll all go out somewhere to dinner, but I'll make Mom give me extra whipped cream.

This is the present that Mom got for my human sister. I liked playing with those ribbony things on the top till Mom made me stop.
