I Was Really Brave Today

I spent the day with my mom today. It really was a great Caturday! My mom wanted to sit on the patio this evening, so my mom picked me up and took me outside with her! I was super scared at first! See how big my eyes were?

But my mom held me tight, and then I loosened up a little when mom gave me scritches on the top of my head. I was super nervous, but it sure was exhilarating to be so brave!

I am a really small Jelly Bean, and I was really brave today!

FINALLY Friday!

It is FINALLY Friday! I help my mom get ready every morning, and I especially like Fridays, because tomorrow is the weekend and mom won't be working! Do you see my chair? My chair is the small chair. Mom's chair is the big chair. Mom sits on her chair and I sit on my chair. I do this EVERY morning.

Misty says: "Did someone say it is FINALLY Friday?"

Brown Paper Bag & Brillante Weblog Award

This is my Brown Paper Bag. It comes from my mom's favorite grocery store. It says on the outside that it might be used for many different things after carrying groceries. I bet my Brown Paper Bag did not know what I would do with it!

I had to make a few alterations with my Brown Paper Bag. I had to chew some holes in it for some air conditioning. Plus my tail was too floofy to fit inside!

The holes I chewed also make it much easier for my mom to help me play with my toys from inside my Brown Paper Bag!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Today I would also like to talk about a wonderful award I got from two special doggie friends. I got the Brillante Weblog Award from Thor in Brazil and Clover in Canada!


Thank you Thor and Clover! I would like to pass this award along to my friends Abby, Hana, Pedro, PB&J kitties, and my new friends Kodak, Winton and 3 Perf.

It's All About Me

Misty is upset that mom is going back to work today after a long weekend. She seems to be getting a much more demanding of mom's attentions lately.

Misty says: "Don't you know? It's all about me!"

Memorial Day is For Remembering

On this Memorial Day weekend, I would like to remember my sister, Taffy, who went to the Bridge almost two years ago. Taffy used to love to sit in this wicker basket on top of these towels in the bathroom. Mom left the basket just as it was when Taffy used it. She did not even wash the towels.

Sometimes when I am feeling sad and missing Taffy, I go and sit in this basket. It makes me feel better that I can still smell the scent of her furs. From this basket I send her purrs and tell her I miss her a lot.



Mom told me what the true meaning of Memorial Day is, but I hope nobody minds that I would like to remember Taffy too, on this Memorial Day weekend.

7 Questions Meme & Japanese Name Meme

I was tagged by Mickey for the 7 QUESTIONS MEME.

The rules of the game get posted at the beginning. Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player than tags 4 or 5 people and post their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog. Let the person who tagged you know when you have posted your answer.

1. What was I doing 10 years ago?

I was not borned yet. My birth mom ran around a lot with a lot of different mancats and had lots of babies, before she had me. (That is what I heard.) And guess what? My mom says when she adopted me they told her that I was borned around May 21st! That means I must be 8 years old now!

2. Five Things on my to do list today.

Eat crunchies, treats and fishies. Have a belly snuggle. Play with my mom (she likes this a lot). Watch wildlife visitors. Sleep.

3.Three snacks I enjoy.

Temptations, fresh grilled salmon lightly seasoned, and tuna juice!

4.Things I would do if I were a billionaire.

I would save all the homeless cats and dogs in the world, get them a nice forever home, and make sure to be their friend. And I would give my mom a lot of money so she would not have to work any more, so she could be with me more.

5. Three of my bad habits.

I talk too much, I pick my toenails with my teeth (see my photo above), and I have separation anxiety!

6.Five places I have lived.

I live in Fairview, Texas now. Before that I spent half a day at Petsmart in Plano Texas, the day that mom found me on 8/13/00! Before that I lived with a foster parent from the cat rescue group, Texas Cares. That is all I remember because I was very small then!

7. Five jobs I have had.

Official House Belly Snuggler, Peace and Quiet Disturber, Bug Patrol Manager, Zoomies Expert (Hana knows what this is), Fun & Games Executive.



JAPANESE NAME GAME:

I was also tagged by my friend, Mona, last week for the Japanese name game.

Instructions as follows:
Spell out your name using the given Japanese letter-translation below. Tag six of your friends to do the same & inform them of the tag.
A = KA G = JI M = RIN S = ARI Y = FU

My Japanese name is ZUKUTATAFU TUKUKATO. It has a nice ring to it, don't you think? And it even has KAT in it too!

Calm Down....It Is Not the End of the World!

Hi Everyone! I don't think anyone guessed correctly what Misty finally ate yesterday. Misty ate the green can, Chopped Grill. I don't understand why she is so finicky and what the problem is. Just give me some fishies and I am happy. I ate the fish and shrimp, and in the night PooPoo came out and snarfed up everything we did not finish!

Here I am last night hanging with my mom with a belly full of fishies.

Here we go again......Misty just found out this morning that was the last can of chopped grill in the house! She is really freaking out now, and spent a lot of time this morning pacing in the kitchen and pantry till she calmed down for some box time.

Misty still looks anxious though, don't you think?

What May Mom Serve You Today, Misty?

Here is what happened this morning. I was upstairs trying to get a bird's eye view of the morning's activities. I heard mom talking to Misty (in a high voice) and could not believe how Misty was working my mom!


Misty was "training" my mom again! Misty knows mom is always anxious that she keeps eating enough so she stays well since her kidney removal surgery, but give me a break! The surgery was over two years ago now!

This morning, Misty turned up her nose on all three cans of Fancy Feast that my mom opened for us! Misty proceeded to use her half starved look to make mom open a 4th can!

Can you guess which flavor Misty finally ate?

Use the Tail When Necessary

Mom left us last night and said she was going out. This was very disturbing to me. I asked mom where she was going and mom tried to tell me she was on Big World Assignment, and she going to look for "The Horse With No Name" for me for JB's Big World. Something just didn't sniff right......


Misty asked where mom was going too. Mom said: Knock Knock.: Misty said: "Who's there?" Mom said: "The Guess Who....and America"
Misty gave mom THE TAIL.



We found out that mom went to the Wildflower Festival in Richardson, Texas. It was a music festival with some really old bands.


Mom! I thought you said you were busy with work and stuff, and you could not help me blog and here you are goofing off listening to music! Mom!!!
The moral of the story: "Use THE TAIL when necessary."

All Boxed Up & Ready For Friday

As any cat would probably agree, a box is one of the best resting spots. Misty likes boxes a lot. It does not have to be anything fancy. A plain brown box will do.

I like boxes a lot too, but when mom got home today from a long day at work today, here is how she found me. Mom said: "JB, how did you have all those catnip pillow stuffies on top of you?"

JB said: "Why did you do this to me? I know I am super fun and easy-going to pick on, but come on!"

JB, Trooper GirlCat on Duty

I am a small girlcat, but I am also an important trooper girlcat on the side. I am helping to find Hammer's brother, Beau who was stolen from his family. If you want to help too, click here. But, I thought if Hammer does not mind, I would like to use my trooper skills to help my mom too!

Here is the reason! There was a big snake lurking around our neighborhood this weekend! First our neighbors said it was a Python!.....but then we found out it is a Rat Snake. These snakes eat duck eggs and small rodents. Mom, why can't they eat armadillos instead??

I hope the scary snake will not eat my little friend Peter Rabbit, who lives in our yard! I must save Peter and all my other wildlife animal friends!

Hey, wait a minute! I am very small too, sort of like a small rodent......do you think the snake will try to eat me too? Mom! Mom! I am scared!

Happy Feets on Friday!

Today is Friday, and my mom is super happy about that (as always!). We are happy too because mom will be home this weekend. Even our feets are happy! ....well, except for PooPoo!

PooPoo says: "Don't touch my feets!!!"

JB says: "Please rub and massage my feets, mom. That makes me very happy!"


Misty says: "Catch my feets if you can, mom, but I'd rather have scritches on my head and food in my belly. That's what makes me happy!"

PooPoo's Antics

Some of you have been asking how PooPoo is doing. She is doing the same, mad and stinky as ever. She has not done anything photo-worthy lately, so mom thought I could show you some pictures of her growing up years.

So, I hereby present you with "PooPoo's Antics":

"PooPoo in a wastebasket"


"PooPoo with her face IN a basket"


"PooPoo trying to take Taffy's bed"



"PooPoo stretched out in a big box"


"PooPoo trying to get in a small box"

"PooPoo draped in mom's lace curtains after she ripped the curtain rod off the wall when mom was at work!"

Oooh, mom was mad about this last photo! On this same day PooPoo had also smashed a lamp against the marble fireplace! PooPoo was quite a handful, and she still is!!

Our Carpet Sample Square

Here are Me and Misty on Monday. We sure ARE spending a lot of time together lately, and we don't know why! I guess we love each other?

Here we are with our carpet sample square. We like to play a game to see who can sit their butt on the square first. Kinda like musical chairs! This time I won!

Night-time Wildlife Visitors

Friday Night: Mom, mom!!!! I see something outside! It frightens me and it has a scary face! Mom, mom! Come see! Pleeeeease, come see!

I think it is one of THESE!!!!!!



Saturday Morning: Ooooh, mom should have listened to me! Look what happened in the night from our latest wildlife visitors! Armadillos came and dug up my mom's pansies!

Oooh, mom was mad! They also dug a huge trench through a flower bed and under our house!! They threw piles and piles of dirt all over her freshly mulched flower bed! You can even see an underground sprinkler pipe in this picture of the big hole if you look closely.

Mom was very mad on Saturday. She went to the store and got some stinky spray to repel the armadillos away.

Sunday morning: All was quiet last night. No armadillos and there was nothing else for me to do but have another belly snuggle!

I hope that my other wildlife visitors will still come visit me!
