Purrs Needed!

I need a favor! I need all of my furiends to cross their paws and purr for Drebin. Jen works with Drebin's human and he called her yesterday with some bad news. Drebin snuck out the front door on Wednesday afternoon and he isn't home yet. His human is so worried about him. He has put up posters and is out looking for him. Please purr for Drebin to come home!

Mom Meme

Today, Jen has asked to borrow my blog to participate in the Mom Meme. She was tagged by Sue, Wally, Ernie and Zoey's mom. I thought about telling her no, but changed my mind. She does feed me after all...

Thanks Tuck. I promise you can have the blog back tomorrow!

So the rules of the meme are:

“Either (1) post 7 facts about yourself AND photos OR (2) post 10 facts about yourself with no photos, OR (3) post a childhood picture of yourself.” I've selected #1.

First, here's a photo that was taken last weekend at a balloon festival. No idea why we decided to have the picture taken with the line of PortaPottys in the background.

1. I was born and raised in West Virginia and moved to New Jersey after college. I still miss home.

2. I'll be 30 in a few months. I'm really dreading it. I spent the first few years in my 20s wishing for 30 because I thought it sounded respectable. In the last three years I realized that I'm not ready to be done with the 20s yet.

3. I love to read and I do it freakishly fast. Sometimes I'll read three or four books in a day (If I have the books and nothing else to do.) I even reread books if I'm really desperate. My favorites are Harry Potter, the Sookie Stackhouse series and mystery books.

4. If I'm in a really bad mood, or despressed, I like to bake. There's something comforting about it.

5. I love the beach, but hate the ocean. I watched Jaws too many times when I was young. I have this unrealistic idea that if I go in the water above my knees that I'm done for. I also can't stay on the beach for too long. I start to blister.

6. I don't watch many television shows. I love True Blood and American Idol, but other than that I stick with HGTV and the Food Network.

7. I grew up wanting to be a teacher, ended up graduating with a degree in print journalism and spent a year as a newspaper reporter before I switched careers.

Now I'm supposed to tag other bloggers, so I'm going to tag Zeus' mom, Chey's mom, Adele, Bella and Vincent's mom, Pemberley's mom, JB's mom and Jas' mom.

Mancat (In Training) Monday: Just Relax

I have learned that sometimes you just need to kick back and relax. After a long day of watching the birds, chasing your tail and catching bugs, it's important to take a little time to unwind.

Only five more weeks until I become a mancat!!

I'm Never Allowed to Have Fun

It's been a long week. Last night, I needed to relax a little. I decided that I needed a drink. Why not, the humans were having one, so I should be allowed too. This is what happened...

Hmm, let me sniff this one and see what I think...

Yep, this one is good. Pour me a glass won't you?

What is this? That is white and I know I ordered red.


Fine, forget it. I'm going to sleep. Who needs you humans anyway?

Mancat (In Training) Monday: The Countdown Begins

For many months I have been training for the day when I begin a real mancat. I have learned my lessons, both good and bad and have been given invaluable advice from many of you mancats out there. And now, I have only six more weeks to train before my dream becomes a reality! I'm feral, so we don't know my exact birthday, but Jen is sure that I was born sometime in August. So we have decided to celebrate my purrthday on August 31st. On that day I will become a mancat. I am so excited! I hope these next six weeks go by quickly!

Hey You!

Yeah, I'm talkin' to you. I know what you are doing. I see the bags you have packed. I watched you as you searched for beach bags and towels. I sniffed the sunscreen. You are leaving me. I'm staying behind while you head to the beach. You worked long hours all week, were too tired to help me blog and now you're leaving me. When you come back on Tuesday maybe I won't be here. Perhaps, I will find humans that appreciate me and deserve such a fine mancat (almost). Just don't be surprised if I don't come running to you when you get back. I have better things to do than wait for you. Like throw up a hairball or clean my bum.

A little annoyed...

I'm a little, ok, maybe a lot, annoyed with my humans today. Yesterday was Wednesday, meaning I should have posted a Wordless Wednesday picture. But my human refused to assist me. She made some lame excuse about having to catch a 4:30 am train. Then, she claimed to be too tired last night to help me visit my friends. What is she good for? Does anyone have a useful human they can loan me?

Mancat (In Training) Monday: Make Your Own Happiness

Sometimes, a mancat has to make his own happiness. For example, I love watching the birds outside of the kitchen window. However, there are times that I just want to stretch out.

So, I discovered that by breaking off pieces of the blinds, I can lay on top of the microwave and still see out the window.
See my peephole? It was a genius idea!
Now, I stretch out and can still see everything.
I certainly have made myself happy...not so sure that Jen and Frank are pleased with the broken blinds though!
