Robbie and Lucy are going out of town for a week, so Robbie came by this evening to drop Kiki off at our house. And along with Kiki, her doggy bed, food, chew toys, etc., they brought a kitten! Her name is "Rescue" and she is 13 weeks old. Rescue's biological mother is a feral barncat who lives on Lucy's property, and she abandoned Rescue when she was only one week old! So Lucy and Robbie started bottle-feeding Rescue. I'm not sure that she knows she's a cat; I heard that she likes to ride around on people's shoulders like a parrot! Oh well, efurryone has their idiosyncrasies. She seems like a pretty nice little kitty....She certainly purrs a lot! I guess I can put up with her for one week.

Okay, enough about the dog. How do you like my extra-curly-tail picture? Mom took that photo a couple of weeks ago, but a few days ago she printed it out on her compooter and then put it in a frame and hung it on the bedroom wall. I feel SO honored! Mommy is really happy because now she and Daddy can both admire my picture efurry day. I'm not sure if Daddy shares my mom's enthusiasm...Mom didn't ask him.
Okay, what else is new? Well, I am checking in efurry day on my Facebook event page entitled "Purresident Curly's Town Hall Meeting". Attendance has really dropped off since I started the event, but I still check in frequently, just in case someone stops by. My furiend and Vice Purresident Princess Kitty came to the meeting yesterday. It's always good to see her.
Oh, I have a new blogging buddy! His name is Christopher http://www.blogger.com/profile/05908623676437513493
It was really funny because I just happened to read about him and thought he sounded pretty cool, so I invited him to be furriends on Catster.com. It turned out that he had seen my blog and had sent me a Catster furiend request right about the same time!! Talk about a coincidence! Obviously, we were meant to be furriends.
Well, that's about it for now. I hope efurryone has a super-duper weekend, filled with purrs and Temptations treats.

I would so apurreciate it now if my blogging furriends would vote for either or both of my pictures! I have reprinted the instructions below on how to vote. My two pictures, once again, are in the "Full Monty" and "Monty Q" categories. (The "Full Monty" is where my legs are straight up in the air.)
Thank you for your suppurrt!!

Then write down your favorite for each category and send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. You don't have to enter to vote, either -as long as you have a blog you can enter.

I already had some prior experience with feathers, but they were generally small, and got kind of boring after the first few minutes. But peacock feathers are in a class by themselves!
This past weekend, Mommy and Daddy went to visit the mom and grandpawrents of my furiend Guido the Italian Kitty (http://theguidogazette.blogspot.com/). Guido's grandpawrents live on a ranch with a whole bunch of peacocks roaming the grounds. Now, I already had some knowledge of peacocks because our neighbors across the road have just one of those big birds, so I know that they make a loud meowing sound like a cat! But I never got up close and purrsonal with our neighbor's peacock, so I didn't know what the deal was with those tail-feathers. It seems that the big birds shed their feathers so they can grow new ones, and that's what was going on when Mommy and Daddy went to Guido's grandpawrents' place. So my pawrents picked up some of the feathers off the ground to bring home and put in a vase. (I thought vases were for flowers...I really don't understand humans.) But they did let me have one that was a bit scraggly, and I'm having a blast with it!
I wish all of my furiends a good week, and if you're looking for a good time, I would highly recommend peacock feathers to all of you.

My consolation is that I know I look better than Rayna in that flag shirt....She looks like a little kid playing dress-up with grown-ups' clothes! MOL!
Wednesday, July 1, 2009
There's a 4th of July dress-up contest on Catster, spearheaded by my good buddy Skeezix. I managed to sneak away while my meowmy was attempting to dress us kitties to participate in the contest. Rayna is only 3 months old and didn't realize what was going on, so she got caught and had to pose for a picture. (From the look on her face, I don't think she did this willingly.)
Here's a link to the dress-up Purrade and contest:
I enjoy looking at the other cats in their Fourth of July finery. I just don't want to have to dress up myself. Oops, gotta run! Here comes Meowmy with a cat-sized costume and a camera....

The way my mom explained it is that their elderly neighbor Ray passed away last week, leaving behind several feral kittens that were born to two momcats who were dumped on his property. He and his daughter had hoped that my folks would take one of the baby cats. Of course, I hoped that common sense would prevail ... I was the last kitty they adopted; You would think that once I came into the picture, there would be no need for more cats. But my parents are sentimental fools, and took the kitten anyway "in Ray's memory". She already has her own Catster page: http://www.catster.com/cats/994260 , and to top it off, they named her "Rayna" in his honor! That's a bit too close to "reina", the Spanish word for "queen". I hope she doesn't get any ideas that she is some kind of royalty! Pffftt!!

I haven't decided yet if my new dog is good for much, but I do have him to thank for my occasional forays into the great outdoors. The hoomans seem to open the door much more often since Pen came to live with us, and that provides more oppurrtunities to position myself near the door and plot my escape. I usually get caught and brought back inside, but efurry once in awhile, the hooman mommy says something about a "photo-op", and allows me to spend a bit of supervised time outdoors. Unfurtunately, "photo ops" usually involve some foolishness with the puppy. Oh well, I'll take what I can get, if it means I get a few minutes to chomp on a nice blade of grass or get a bit of fresh air and excercise. The rest of the time, I have to appurreciate "Earth" through the window. I hope efurryone is enjoying this Earth Day and doing something nice for the planet. As for me, I'm going to go sit by the door and wait for the puppy to go out.

Mommy promised me that if I posed for this foolishness, I would be rewarded with about fifteen minutes of celebrity. And it took only half-a-year for the picture to appear on the SOMC web site!

Well, Daddy caved in to Mommy's pleas and agreed to adopt another puppy. Daddy thought it was too soon after Sasha went to the Rainbow Bridge, but Mommy was so sad without a puppy around that Daddy finally gave in. (Actually, it was a little less than 3 weeks, but it seemed like a long time to Mommy.) I hope my kitty furiends won't consider me a traitor for saying this, but I have really been missing having a puppy around, too, and was glad to welcome a new pup into our home! Mommy and Daddy named the new puppy "Pen", after the Bill Monroe tune "Uncle Pen". (My pawrents are huge bluegrass mewsic fans.) I can't quite figure Pen out yet. When he is inside, I flop down in front of him and roll over, but I can't seem to entice him into playing with me the way Sasha used to do. I have a lot to teach this kid. Mommy doesn't usually allow me to go outside, but she did let me have a supervised outing this morning, and Pen actually did play with me for a minute! But then he lost interest and went to check out something else in the yard. I guess puppies have a very short attention span, so I'll have to be patient.

For my ten honest things, I will say that
1. I could not hold my tail straight even if I wanted to.
2. I am more tolerant of dogs than my cat sibs are.
3. I think my wife Lily is very pretty... (no...make that BEAUTIFUL!)
4. I never miss in the litter box...If you see a mess, you can blame Stanley. (That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.)
5. I'm a genial, all-around nice guy cat.
That's only 5 things, but my typist is soooooo tired. Maybe she'll help me type five more honest facts later.

My furiends over at Jan's Funny Farm (http://www.blogger.com/profile/15291874914770283114) posted six things that make them happy. I would like to try this, too!
1.) Sitting on Mommy's lap while she's on the computer
2.) Being married to my gorgeous wife Lily (http://www.catster.com/cats/647722)
3.) Getting my morning ration of Temptations treats. What a great way to start the day!
4.) Hanging out with my BFF Lalo (even though he does sometimes crowd me in one of the kitty beds.)
5.) Running outside and grabbing a mouthful of fresh blades of grass, before Mom catches me and brings me back inside.
6.) TUMMY RUBS!!!

So it was a shock last night when Mommy broke the news to me that Sasha was gone. She was barely four months old! She had been riding in the back of Daddy's pickup truck when I guess she got excited by a neighbor dog and tried to jump over the side. Her collar broke off, and Sasha landed under the rear wheels of the truck. Daddy is blaming himself, and he and Mommy are both so heartbroken. I am trying to comfort them, but I am heartbroken too. In my own kitty way, I had come to really love that dog.

In the wonderful world of cyberspace, we cats can pretty much go wherever we want and do whatever we want to do. A prime example of this would be the wonderful Valentine's Day weekend trip to PURRis, FURance which will be attended by many of my furriends from Catster.com. I'll be accompanied by my lovely wife Lily as well as numerous furriends and my fursibs Stanley and Flaca. I don't want to embarrass Lily as we stroll down the Champs-Élysées, so I have put together an appropriate Purrisian wardrobe. Just call me Meowrice Chevalier!

The guy who started the sanctuary made a ton of money in the dot-com business, and then spent about two million dollars to take in "special needs" cats that were destined to be euthanized at other shelters. The cats aren't caged, and they get lots of love, attention, and whatever medical treatment or physical therapy they need. Mommy says if she won millions of dollars in the lottery, she would like to do the same thing. I say, "Don't hold your breath, Mommy!" But it is a nice thought. A tip of the tail to the fine gent who spent $2,000,000 of his own money rescuing kitties that no one else wanted, and giving them a loving, furever home!
