Happy July!

whoopdeeeedoooo.  July.  Hot.  Heathens.  Not HOT HEATHENS, they are so not hot.  Well, maybe Cinco and Hermie.  I hate Louie.  I don't really know Robin well enough but I still hiss at him.

Mom's been quite busy. 

She had visitors last month.  Craaaaazy Cat Ladies to be precise. 

I saw Dori, she scared me.  I am sure she wanted to kill me.  Or cuddle me.  Either ones sounds awful. 

I didn't look at Rebecca or Lizzie.  I bet I would have liked them.   Except for that wanting to kill me part. 

One of the ladies Mom works with gave this to Mom.  It is filled with some awesome catnip.  I loved it.  I had to share with the others and it got covered with cat spit. 

ooooo big birdies. I'd eat for  a week.  Maybe not.  My food is dry and I like it!  A lot!

oh yum!!!  Hermie all sexy like. 

Crazy cat ladies.  Mom, Rebecca and Dori. 

Rebecca's Mom Lizzie with some nice dog I do not recognize.  I have no idea who he is cause the one who looks like him is not nice.  No idea who he is.  But I am sure I hate him. 

Oh my goodness!  Please tell me this one isn't part of the heathen group....cause he is handsome!  Look at his nose, so strong.  I'm in love......but I hate him.

Really, Mom, do you have to take pictures of Louie?  Look at his fangs!

I better get back to my napping.  I have to be ready to snuggle Mom in the middle of the night when she is upset.  It is happening a bit right now.  I've stepped up the food dish to take care of Mom.

Stay warm folks!

Remembering Herman

Tomorrow is Memorial Day.  Mom says we need to remember those who have passed.  Here goes:
This is Mom's Grandpa.  His name was Herman and he was a Marine in World War II.  I don't know what war is but I don't like it.  He was in the Pacific theater.  In late July of 1945 he was wounded.  He told Mom that when they said run, he did...He ended up with shrapnel in his back.  He was in the hospital getting better when the war in the Pacific ended.  He was about to go back into action when the war ended. 

Thank you Herman for your service to the country and the world.  You were a good man.  (he loved kitties and doggies and was a very nice man.  I can see where Mom gets it.)

This is Grandpa's brother, Forrest.  He was in the army in World War II.  From what information Mom got from letters, he barely made it out of boot camp.  He played in bands during the early 40's.  Not like marching bands but BIG BANDS!  Rumor was it was Tommy Dorsey.  Forrest died in Italy in February 1945 after stepping on a mine.

This is Mom's Uncle Joe.  He was in the army too.  Joe was captured by the Germans and was in a POW camp.  He never talked about it much other than to say he HATED the tv show Hogan's Heroes.  Mom has a postcard that was sent by Uncle Joe to his parents letting them know he was ok.  It has a swastika on the front of it (freaked Mom out) but the Red Cross tried to make sure that the men who were in the camps got word to their families.

Herman and Helen in 1944.  They look so young. 

Herman and Helen in 1980.  Still look pretty darned good

Herman and Helen in 2000.  They still loved each other.

Hermie and Ellie, can you feel the love?

So this weekend, remember those who have passed. 

Stay safe my friends.

Spring has sprung

I live in Florida so Spring sprung a while ago.  Yeah, we had some cold days but now it is hot from now on! 

Mom got us a new air conditioner.  It works good.  Mom needs it cause the barkers, Cinco and I give Mom hot flashies at night. 

he is kind of hot, don't ya think?????

Mom took another doggie to the emergency vet a week ago.  Dyson jumped off the damned couch and landed wrong and hurt his back right leg.  When Hoover hurt his leg, it was the same one (on him silly).

He didn't break it but Mom was scared he did.  It was ruff for all of us. 

See, he is feeling better.  He and Hermie had a discussion today.  It doesn't look so deep to me. 

Mom says I need to write more in my blog.  I've been lazy.  I'll try....

Now I must rest.  I am sooooooooooooooo tired.

My New SSSSSSSisssssster

KIDDING!!!!  Mom did not add another to the zoo.  But.  Someone came visiting last night very late. 

We were all asleep.  So nice.  And then Mom woke up to a noise.  Dyson also woke up and was barking.  Mom figured out where the sound was coming from.  It was in the bathroom next to the bedroom.  Mom was not excited.  She knew she had to look out the window.  Something was making noise.   Mom looked out the window.  It was dark and she didn't see anything.  Then.  THEN mom looked again.  And saw this

Want to know what Mom did when she saw it?  She jumped and went 'aaaaaa'.  Then she got her camera to take a few pictures.  Snake did leave when Mom bothered him enough by tapping on the window.

yeah.....that was freaky.  I tried to help Mom feel better after it was all over.  but it still took her 2 hours before she calmed down.

Madame Louie (aka Heathen numero uno) didn't sssssssssssseeeeee that coming.  doofus

Mom rearranged closets again.  Winter clothes were moved back to the other bedroom and summer clothes are back out.  And she also put a bunch of clothes into plastic bags to give to Goodwill. 

We are all doing good.   I'm doing my best to make sure that Mom is happy.  I think it is my job to make her happy.  it is HARD!!!!!!

I must rest now.  I hope I don't dream of slithering things!

Happy Annifurrsary to ME!!!!!!

Today is a very important day.  Five years ago I rescued Andi from her life of boredom.  I know...she needed me BAD!    OK, I needed her too but I had no idea that I needed her.  I wanted to die that day, 5 years ago.  My life sucked.  I was sick and very tired and no one loved me.  And then Andi came along.  She said 'Hi kitty' and my life changed forever. 

Today she is my best friend.  I love Andi, she is a good human.  I snuggle her every night at bedtime.  I get good food.  I have a warm, safe house.  No one yells at me, tells me to go away. 

Yes, I do have to deal with heathens.  But the human we call 'Mom' makes them stop. 

yes, I looked pretty rough when I got here.  But I was a street kitty.  I was a young mom with no kittens in sight.  And I was very sick. 

In a few weeks I was feeling better
And soon I was meeting the boy kitty, Bob.  I miss Bob. 

And the doggie in the house, Wraggs.  She was a great sister!

Life was good.  Then this happened
Life again, was no longer going to be the same.

A few weeks after THOSE arrived, Bob went to the rainbow bridge.  Mom was very upset.  More stuff happened to Mom (she got her heart hurt). 

And then a year passed....Mom was hurt more.  We kitties and the doggie did our best to make her feel better

And then we added this to the house

Another boy. 

And then much sadness occurred.  My dog sister Wraggs went to the rainbow bridge to be with Bob. 

We were all really sad.  But we kept going.

Mom was home a lot with us, we liked it.  But then Mom went back to work. 

And then....THIS occurred.
Two DOGS!!! And they are boys!!!!

That was ok.....they weren't mean to me.

Another year goes by and we get THIS!!!!

I'm in love again.  And I'm a COUGAR!!!!

As I move into year 6 with Andi, I'm sure it will be filled with much love from Andi and the other members of the family.  And those who love mom that are humans. 

I am so thankful for that day, February 16, 2008, when I rescued Mom. 

Now I must get my rest.  This writing is very tiring when you can't type!!!!!

Yes, yes, I am alive

I've been rather lax about posting.  Mom has to help me and she is really tired when she gets home from that place she goes.  Mom's not quite so unhappy right now.  I'm not sure why but she seems to be happier.  Us furkids like when Mom is happier. 

Dyson and I were just on the bed together.  We didn't do anything.  yewwwwwwwwwww

Oh yea, me and Louie  NOTHING HAPPENED!!!!

Me and Cinco.  sigh......yes, I am a cougar. 

oooo, the wind just picked up big time.  We have storms blowing thru here.  It is a good thing that I live inside where it is safe and warm. 

Meowing of that, Saturday February 16th is a pretty important day for me.  Just sayin'!

Thankfulness is our annual 'what are we thankful for' post.  I have to, again this year, let the others have their say......sigh.  sucks.  But it has to here goes


- I am thankful for makes it feel better to pee.  I am NOT thankful that Mom has to shove a pill down my throat every morning.  I sort of let her do it without scratching her TOO much.  I'm thankful for my brothers and gorgeous Ellie.  I'm even thankful for Mom.....

Hermie - 
What am I thankful for???? I'm so glad to have Mom.  She even took me to the mean doctor lady cause she thought I was losing weight, well, I was.  I'm thankful I am not sick.  I'm thankful for kibbles, gooshy foods and snacks!!! 

Robin -

I'm thankful to still have a good home.  A Mom who loves me even though I am quirky.  My brothers, Hermie and Louie (the doofus) and not so thankful for Cinco.  Overall, I am am just happy to have a good home

Cinco -
Hi hi hi hi!!!  I am so happy to have a home, very thankful that the nice lady called 'Mom' took me in and made sure I was safe and have food and warm place to sleep.  I'm thankful I get to snuggle Mom at night and sleep with her and Ellie.  It is the BESTEST ever, way better than chasing after lizards and trying to survive on my own.

Hoover -
What am I thankful for?  Miss Brenda and her friends.  They rescued me and my kid from the streets of Savannah.  Miss Brenda brought us to Mom where we now have the best life ever.  Mom is the best!  I even like the mean doctor lady, she gave me pills that made my back feel better. 

Dyson -
Is it my turn?????  Really??? for REAL????  OK, I am happy that Mom didn't get rid of me after the ink incident.  Or the Birkenstock debacle.  Or the sofa stuffing broohahha.  I'd talk about the others...but there are too many to talk about!!!  I'm so happy to have a safe home, mom loves me and the other furkids.  I snuggle with her every night.  and she doesn't get too pissed when I bite her in the middle of the night...and leave bruises. 

Ellie -
Well FINALLY, they all shut up.  I'm still thankful and happy to live with Andi/Mom.  This is the best place ever.  Five years ago I was on the street, going to be a kitty mama soon and no idea how to do it.  I was on my own.  No one loved me.  Now?  I am loved.  Not just by Mom but her friends too. The ones who have met in in real life and the ones who only know me from the Internet. I'm even glad for the DOGS and HEATHENS.  Even glad to have Cinco here.  Everyone makes Mom smile and I want her to smile. 

Thank you all for reading Ellie's blog.  I have many things to be thankful for too.  My friends and loved know who you are.  I'm thankful for the furkids.  I'm just thankful

So now that EVERYONE had their say and me too, I guess I am done for tonight.  Have a wonderful thanksgiving everyone.
