Weekend Cat Blogging

Welcome to Weekend Cat Blogging!

Robyn the human here. I'm taking over the blog this weekend, as the cats want the weekend off. Apparently the cool fall weather here in Virginia calls for more napping than blogging this weekend. Go figure!

So I've brought Weekend Cat Blogging over here from my crystals and jewelry adventure blog. I wanted to do it all in one place; I'm only human, after all. ;) The cats will be happy to meow to you all about that bit later. hehe

To start things out here's my Mini.

Mini is kind of famous for always wanting food, around the cat blogosphere, even at Carnival of the Cats. Her motto is "FEED ME!" Really. She's like that. It gets pretty funny at times. I always have to laugh when she's inspecting a box like this to see if it's edible. "Mini, honey, that box doesn't taste good. Trust me on this one." Of course, being a curious cat, she had to try it herself. She ended up deciding I was right, apparently, and wandered off to find a handy food bowl instead. She's a trip. A sweety, and the only true lap cat of all the Hotties. But a trip too. hehehe

Let's visit other kitties. They're fun.

Salome over at Paulchen's is having a ball while Kashim watches and Othello keeps out of the way.

Cheysuli is guarding her hat from Gemini over at Chey's Place.

Amar and Luna are having a reflective weekend over at CatSynth.

Sophia at DivaKitty and the Fluffies has her pounce on!

Tripper tipped us off that it's Sleepy Saturday over at Skeezix's house.

Don't look now, but Kilroy the Love Beastie is too sexah for his blog.

Diamond Emerald Eyes shows us that cats can be victims of Domestic Violence too.

Sultry Samantha Black feels eyes upon her at Life From A Cat's Perspective. Could it be Mr. Tigger? Nahhhhhhhhhh. ;)

Phoebe is a Siamese Cat and she's looking good and checking out the autumn today over at her blog.

Kitikata-san shows how all kinds of animals can become friends, at least for a while.

Victor and Nina are thoughtful over at Victor Tabbycat and Nina the Torbie.

Mina at Photo Guylaine and Cuisine Guylaine looks like she loves flowers and they suit her well.

Diamond Emerald Eyes was a VERY GOOD GIRL at her photo shoot. She says so herself.

Over at Pet's Garden Blog, there's a new ride for the kitties. Oh, and Pet too ;) Pet also sends thanks for all the good wishes and prayers.

Quasi congratulates Hemingway's Cats on being able to stay in their home.

China Cat and Willow made LOLCats for this week's Bad Kitty Cats Festival of Chaos and want to share them with us too. Way cool!

To join in the WCB fun with your kitty, or if you're a kitty, just drop your link here in the comments and I'll get it up for you.

I'd also like to ask for good thoughts, healing prayers, purrs, and any positivity you can find for Pet of Pet's Garden Blog, who's owned by the Bengal Brats. She and the Bengal Brats have participated in many cat festivities and carnivals. She has a spinal infection that the doctors just can't clear up, and now she's facing dangerous surgery in a month or two to keep it from tearing up her spine. Any good mojo you can send her, is wonderful and much appreciated.

Mini thinks stinky goodness is better than cardboard.

Please do put your Weekend Cat Blogging link here in the comments! I'll stop by a few times today to add your way cool kitty posts.

Thanks for coming to this WCB and joining in! Next week WCB ambles over to hang out with Niko & Cloud at Cats in Maryland.

(cheezy human imitation) Purrrrrrrs,

For more kitty weekend fun, stop by these places too.

13 Things About Going to the V-E-T
by Sanjee

  1. It's not safe to sleep if a PTU* is in tha room.
  2. It is NOT NICE to stuff a sleepin kitty in tha PTU. It is furry rude.
  3. I can get very very small in the backa the PTU.
  4. The monster wif wheels makes very terrible noises. It sounds like it's going to eat me and poop me out later!
  5. The monster wif wheels viiiiibbbbbrrrrraaaates.
  6. Mommy gets werried if I's quiet in the PTU. *snicker*
  7. Those ladies at the V-E-T are furry good at draggin me outta the PTU.
  8. That table is COLD! My paws are frostbited almost!
  9. I losted anofur pound dis yeer. I fink they stoled it from me at tha V-E-T. Must be cuz he wuz happy bout it. He saided I was gettin svelt. I hope svelt is somefin Miles likes.
  10. The V-E-T is a sadist. He stabbed me. Two times!
  11. I am beautiful n purrty n healfy n haf sof furs n my teef are in good shape. The V-E-T is smart enuf to agree wif dat. Efun if he is a sadist.
  12. It took 3 humans to get clippy claws this time too! (I's sure Miles is purroud.)
  13. It's bestest to go to the V-E-T when yore boyfriendcat telerports along wif yoo to comfort yoo.

The PTU is in my room again! The closet door is closed! Help me hide! Don't let her catch me! I don't want to go to the v-e-t!!!!

Sanjee the Queen Bee Kitty

Pee Ess. Fanks lots to my handsum boyfriendcat Miles for sayin he'd come wif me to the v-e-t if the Mommy catches me.

Caturday Noos

Sanjee the Queen Bee Kitty Sanjee noos: I was furry sneeky yesterdy. Mom left the PTU in my room Furday night. But I saw it. I KNEW she wuz gonna try to take me to the v-e-t to get shot or somefing on Furriday. So I hided. I hided in the big closet wayyyyyyy in the back. It's ezy for us mostly black cats to hide in shadows. hehe So when it came time for me to go to the v-e-t yesterday, Mommy couldn't find me!!! She called and she rattled my rattly mousies, but I was verrrrrrrrry quiet. So Mommy gaved up. Yay!

Pepi noos: Uh, yeah Sanjee. Since Mom couldn't find you, she catnapped me! I was just napping so nicely in my cat cup when she came and grabbed me and stuffed me into the PTU. The indignity. Can't a mancat even have a nap around here any more? She dragged me to the v-e-t and he shot me and mooshed my innards and weighted me an all sorts of not fun stuff. Uck. The only good thing I can say for it is that she did bring me back home. And she did give me a stinky goodness treat when I got home. Toona flavor. Yum!

Gree noos: My tail is twitching again. *sigh* It's not as bad as before though. I think it happened when I jumped off the table. Maybe Mom's right and I shouldn't jump on the table. Mom and Grandma know how to curl up with me and help me relax so it doesn't twitch too much. They're good at that now. And if I hurt, Mom still has some of the pain medicine. I don't have to go to the v-e-t about it unless my tail tries to move to a new house or something weird. Mom asked the v-e-t yesterday and he said that. Something like that anyways.

Mini noos: I am hungry. Feed me!!!!!

Boni Maroni is not as skinny as macaroniBoni noos: I like my cat cup bed. It's toasty now that it's getting cooler. Sour cream is tasty.

For more cat noos and fun stop by the Cat Blogosphere or...

The MRI shows clearly that I have a cyst in the L5-S1 disc. It’s the size of a large marble. So because I already have the narrowing there is not much space if any for my nerve roots as well as my spinal cord. The treatment will be very conservative. I will finish my steroids for inflammation. Then if I am still in pain they will take a needle and guide it through and puncture the cyst as well as putting medicine in the area. YOUR PRAYERS WORK!!! I am in shock and ecstatic that it went so well. I feel extremely blessed. I want to thank each and every one of you for your prayers, love, and support. Also when I got to work this morning I was offered a job that I wanted starting October 1st. How’s that for having your prayers answered?!?"

Sanjee the Queen Bee Kitty

Pee Ess. A'course Miles is way cool and fun and good, but I figgered maybe I shouldn't put him on that list a'cause I didn't want all the girlcats to be jealous of my handsum cool and fun and good boyfriendcat.

Tummy Wednesday

See impawtant update stuff at da bottom.

Since Mommy blogjacked us yesterday, I'm having my Tummy Toosday today. Yoo fink Miles will like this pikshur of my tummy???

Sanjee the Queen Bee Kitty

UPDATES 9:31AM: 1) Mommy finally talked to KC's Daddy Charley yesterdy evenin, and they's ok. They wuz able to get foods n water yesterdy so they's all doin good cept not hafin power sux. (Mommy ML was nappin is why Mommy didn't talk to her. She didn't want Daddy Charley to wake her ups. This is da firstest time Mommy could get thru on the fones insteads text msg, so she was reel happy to talk to Daddy Charley. We's glad Auntie Deb gotted thru earlier tho so we didn't werry so much.)
2) Yep, the CB is down AGAIN. And our site (which is why our pikshurs are missin). Mommy's been wranglin wif the web host bout dat. The purroblem is dat it keeps fixin itself afore the trubble tiket gets to a purrson to fix, and once it's fixed, they can't fix it if yoo knows what I means. Inter-mittens problems are da worstest. So they's werkin on that. We wish they'd get it fixed NOW fur GOOD. Til it does, come back to it in a few minnits and reload, it's usually not down fur long.
3) We's purrin for alla our furriends who's wifout power n stuff from Ike and we's purrin CB will get fixed.

Sadness and Hope

Robyn here. I hijacked the Hotties blog to say something. I hope yall don't mind. The Hotties don't seem to mind, since they're busy napping, so I guess it's ok.

Today I saw what was probably the most powerfully graphic image I think I've ever seen around the cat blogosphere. Simple, quiet, unprepossessing and so expressive. If you've been to Skeezix's blog, you've seen it. It expresses all the sorrows I and so many others have felt recently so much better than anything complex or overworked possibly could.

Skeezix's Blog in Black

Sometimes I feel like it's been just one awful thing after another at the cat blogosphere this year. So many cat and woofie and bun friends gone on to the Rainbow Bridge, old, young, sick, sudden. Then our first human friend from here, Sher. Then the indescribably horrible tragedy of losing Sprout so young and so suddenly. Fires, hurricanes, cancer. Friends going on to other blogging pastures or other phases in their lives. The river of tears I've cried seems just neverending. I've thought so many times of just walking away from it all. I've often thought I was nuts to put myself in the way of so much sadness.

Then to see the effortlessly, eternally cheerful Skeezix's blog draped in black just struck me. With such elegant simplicity, he speaks all the sorrow for all of us. Yes, I cried when I saw it. Another tributary to the river of tears. Somehow in crying over the sad image of a cat's black blog, though, I found some hope.

Yes, there's lots of sadness, but also, there's community. We're all in this together. Yes, we cry together, but we also laugh together. Quite a lot, really. We celebrate little victories and strange holidays and have quite a lot of fun. We support each other through tragedies and successes. We get out from behind the computer screens and visit each other when we're able. We laugh and cry and email and blog and talk on the phone with each other. We send gifts, help animal causes, throw parties. Sometimes we even squabble like siblings. It's a strange and wonderful little world in this corner of cyberspace. Sadness will happen, because we're attuned to each others real lives and life has sadness. It has so much joy, too.

For every tear, there's a smile. For every blog blackened with mourning, there's a colorful one. For every sigh there's laughter. While the sadness screams for attention, the smiles and laughter and colors are always there. I want to be sure I pay attention to the smiles and laughter and colors at least as much.

Midnight Mancat Monday

Mancats know it's ok to snoopervise from any comfy place or position. Like this.

I can see I'm going to have to snoopervise Meow Like a Pirate Day around here. I was trying to email the 2008 graphic for MLP Day, and I wasn't paying enough attention, so the typist screwed up. I will have to make her swab the deck for that. I finally got it mailed right, though. And here's a copy for you.

Meow Like a Pirate Day is Friday, September 19th. You can get all the info on Meow Like a Pirate Day over at the Meowers from Missouri where Cap'n Nels the Cranky tell is like it is.

This box does not taste like chick-hen. But it's fun to chew on anyway.

Let's box up lots of purrs to send to our furriends in Texas and Louisiana that they stay safe from Ike.
