We know that Miles, Sammy and the beans will miss Trixie furry much, but we also know that they gave her the most specialest gift by taking her pain into their own hearts and letting her be free wif her brofurs at Rainbow Bridge. Thank you for sharing yore wisdom, dignity and grace wif us, Miss Trixie.

First...we aksed Miss Yuki and Miss Kimiko to help us name our Squillions becos we wanted them to have the nise Japanese names and they suggested "for the girl kitty (lite grey) we like machiko (ma-chee-ko chee as in cheese and ko as in cocoa) which means fortunate. they was really lucky ars mommy spotted them hiding in the back of the shelter. an furs the boy (dark grey) we like kiyoshi (kee-o-she long o sound) which means quiet. he never mews at all."

We think these names are just purrfect! Kiyoshi reely is furry quiet, he hardly efur sez annyfing and wen he does he has a furry soft voice. Miss Machiko is so furry polite and pretty too, don't you think? We are so glad they came to live wif us! We're gonna send them on some advenchers once they are all settled in.

Looky! We got another packij!! This one sed it was for Buddy and it was from Little Miss Maggie May! He gotted lots of mousies and some jax and a bag of crunchyfoods and a cool toy that you put on a doorknob and it bounces bak and forth - way cool fun! Thanks Miss Maggie May!

Hawaiian Relatifs!!!

We compleetly forgot that we haf pikchers of owr aunt and unkle cats! They live wif Grandma and Grampa in Durham. They 'dopted Grandma and Grampa about 2 yeers ago. They were in the same shelter that I (Finny) was in befor I dopted mom bean!

This is Unkle Iz. I bet the Poiland Tribe knows who he is named after!

Unkle Iz was named after a Hawaiian singer bean named Iz!

And this is Aunt Lili - isn't she furry furry beyootiful? She was named after a Hawaiian bean too, but she was a real live queen! Her name was Queen Lili'uokalani.

Iz and Lili are probly reely reel brofur and sisfur, but the beans don't know for sure. They love each other furry much though, and they take care of each other and sleep nise wif each other and play together nise.


PS: I bet yore wondering wy Unkle Iz and Aunt Lili haf Hawaiian names! It's cos Grandma and Grampa loves Hawaii and have been there like a squillion times!

Officer Fred's Career Cut Short

Do you 'member the story of Officer Fred, the kitty who helped catch a purrtend vetty bean?

We are sad to report that yesterday, at his home in Brooklyn, Officer Fred escaped and was killed in a traffic accident. The story is here.

Officer Fred, we salute you for yore bravery. We extend our deepest sympathies to yore bean fambly and assure them that you are happy and waiting for them at Rainbow Bridge.

Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

We got Tagged!

Mini from the House of (Mostly) Black Cats tagged us for this super fun game!

Here's the rules: The player of this game starts with "5 weird things / habits about yourself". In the end you need to choose 5 people to be tagged and list their names. The people who get tagged need to write a blog about their 5 weird things/habits, as well as state this rule clearly, then tag 5 more victims. Don't forget to leave your victim a comment that says "you're tagged" in their comments and tell them to read your blog.

Here's ours...

Buddy -

1) Only jumps up from the right to sit with mom when she's at the puter
2) Plays fetch but not by carrying the toy in his mouth - he bats it and rolls it to mom
3) If you point your finger at him and say "NO" he cries
4) Gags and backs away if you offer him people food (except milk)
5) NEVER lets mom see him play with his favoritest toy that came with him from New Jersey, but she knows he plays with it because it moves around efurry nite!

Finny -

1) Will let mom rub and kiss his belly, but not brush it
2) Makes mom carry him down the stairs efurry morning
3) Lets mom snuggle him like a stuffed animal when she sleeps at night
4) Has a voice like a rough tough street cat but is reely a big marshmallow
5) One of his ears is always dirty and the other is clean!

We tag Milo, Muffin & Kootoo and Empress Kukka-Maria & Brach AND our cousins the G-Men!! Time to put somefing in your blog, Grady & Gilmore!!!

More about Cat Houses and Outside

Mom sez I haf to tell the troof. She sez we live in a neyberhood that is bizzy wif cars and droolers and it woodn't be safe for us to go sploring by ourselfs. Hmmphf. I am a brave and advencherous growed-up cat! I'm not a silly little kitten that wandered away from his mama-cat and got chased by bad bean boys and got losted and had to get resskewed...oh wate, I am. Well I'm a growed-up cat NOW.

We do get to go owt sometimes. Like wen mom is being a smartypants and KNOWS we woodn't want to get owr pawsies all wet and yucky.

Sometimes I run owt wen she comes home from werk and she lets me walk a little bit and get a few nibbles of grass, but then she comes and picks me up and holds me upside down like a little babycat! The owtrage!! The shame!!!

HA! But then there was the bestest time efur! Wen Bernard and Mrs. Bernard, the wild bunnies who visit us to eet berd seed grass, came to visit and mom opend the dore so she cood put some carrits owt there. I skweeeezed owt the little space and I went bunny-hunting!!!

This is ware to find these cool cat houses.

These ones and lots of other good stuff for poodins (and droolers) are at Drs. Foster & Smith.
