The Candidate!

ImageChef.com - Create custom images


Attention Ladies and Gentlemen of the Cat Blogosphere

I hereby announce my candidacy for President in the upcoming 2008 election!!!!

Our great country was built on the 2 party system. Currently Cheysuli and Derby are apparently running unopposed! Why? I like Chey and Derby, but we need choice and debate!

My running mate is SlyCat. Our Party is The American Patriot Cat Party. We favor fiscal conservancy and social liberalism.

Here is our Party Platform:

1. Free, universal vet care for all cats, dogs, and other creatures.

2. Legalize catnip

3. Economic freedom

4. Smaller government

5. Support the troops/but bring them home

6. More coupons from pet food companies


I challange Cheysuli to a debate, at the time of her choosing, and with the moderator of her choice.

Confessions

Oh My! Monty Q. Kat has tagged me to tell my confessions!

I haven't been to church in a long time. There was a church on the naval base where I was born. Sometimes, I hunted mice there.

My pet human says she was raised Lutheran, but is now Presbyterian. Whatever! I ask her: Am I Catholic???? She says no...you are feline.

OK, Here I go to church



I go into the confessional.......



Father, forgive me......




I like to eat birds

I like to eat lizards

I like to eat spiders

I like to eat chipmunks

I want to eat a quail, just once in my life, but my pet human takes them away and sets them free

Am I forgiven?????



Luv,

Sunday Garden Party!!!!

Welcome to my first annual garden party! Thank you all for joining me. I hope you have a wonderful time!

First I would like to show you how uptight my pet human is. This morning, I was sleeping soundly in my favorite spot, when she came home from the red brick place with the steeple and the bells that gong, gong, gong.....and she totally freaked out.

Here's what happened. (my pet human says to tell you that if the slideshow doesn't loop, you can click the > button, then select play after the last slide.)





I am always prepared!

Oh, here is my first guest. It's Sam, The Marmalade Cat.

Uh,oh! No cat fights. Sorry Sam, I am SlyCat's girl now. But please enjoy the refreshments and company!



Over here is the buffet. As you can see there is:







And









And












But best of all there is an entire platter of:












My favorite!
Please take as much as you like. There is more in the kitchen.


Now, I will take you all on a tour of the garden. I have lots of pretty flowers to show you. (again, if the show doesn't loop, select >, then play after the last slide)



OK! Well that was fun. Now for those who wish to join me, I am going to take a group on a tour of the famous foot path on Shelter Island. Lots of pretty gardens there! Many people walk this path every day! (my pet human says.....these people have lots of "moolah" whatever that is, and we don't. but we like to look at their homes and gardens anyway!)

My friend, Rosie, The Tortie, promised to be waiting by her gate to show us her garden. And maybe we will see some wild parrots along the way.
Slideshow #3 (click >, then play)

Isn't that a nice walk? And wow!!! We got to see some wild parrots! Well back to the garden now.

Please everyone, stay as long as you wish. The days are long now, and later this evening, SlyCat will start up the bar-b-que. Relax and enjoy.


Let's also remember that this is Memorial Day weekend. I live in San Diego, which is a Navy town.....oh, yes, Marines too. So let's take a moment to remember our troops overseas and at home.

One brief word about manners. I would appreciate everyone's consideration about this subject. This is a very conservative neighborhood. I have already caught Derby and Princess Mia doing some heavy petting by the rose bushes. And word has it that Monty Q. is showing his full monty to the girls under the lemon tree.

Please! Let's remember decorum!

Cheers!

A Gift From SlyCat

My Pet Human finally went down the hill to get the mail. Guess what??? She found a package for me from my dear mancat, SlyCat.

Inside was this note:


Then she pulled this out of the box. It's my SlyCat!!!!!!


Here I am in bed with my new toy.

SlyCat and SlyBear!

I am such a lucky girl cat!

Thank you, SlyCat! I love you too!!!!

Post It Note

I was just investigating the bedside table, and somehow this weird pink thing stuck to my tail. My Pet Human laughed and called it a post it note.

BTW: She's reading "Temping" and "Waiting for the Rapture" by Kirby Olson, aka The Lutheran Surrealist, and "Poems by Marianne Moore." She highly recommends them.

My Pet Human is so weird!

Tagged!


Monty Q Cat has tagged me to tell seven random facts about myself.


1. I was born on a Naval Base in Port Hueneme, California, home of the Fighting Seabees. (See John Wayne movie.)

2. My second home was with Buffy, Caspar, and Jersey. Caspar weighs 20 pounds. But even though I was just a wee kitten, I terrorized all of my cousins into hiding under the bed. That's why I live with my current pet human.

3. I am an excellent traveller.

4. I am especially adept at catching chipmunks. Once I caught a quail for my pet human.

5. Even though I am a fierce huntress, I still exhibit signs of insecurity if my pet human goes away for a long time. It's leftover from having been abandoned. My pet human talks about someone named Freud whenever I do this.

6. I love SlyCat!!!!!

7. I write excellent poetry. I may start publishing haiku for SlyCat.

Carnage And Confessions

Not For The Faint Hearted:









Today I caught a nice, juicy birdie. I brought it to my pet human, who is very kind and sympathetic. I don't mean to do this. She feeds me very well.

It's just that I started life in a hard way. I had to fend for myself...feed myself. Every now and then, I see a birdie, and it triggers old, unhappy memories. So I revert to my feral, hunting state.

Here is a link to my biography.

I feel very bad....I should have confessed this to SlyCat before accepting to be his girlfriend. He is such a nice mancat.

Oh, SlyCat, can you ever forgive me?

Garden Tour

My garden is beautiful now! Over the next several weeks, I will show you photos of my flowers!







My Pet Human thinks she is responsible for how pretty the flowers are. But I know it's because I take care of the garden while she is at work.



Roses!
