I Am Thankful, Aye!

Happy Thanksgiving Boo Buddies!!!

Today I am so thankful for the beautiful sunshine, my squishy window seat, the wonderful breakfast of canned salmon I had, the birds flying by, and the big Boo hug I got from Niece and The Boy first thing! I am so happy to be here with family on this glorious day!

I can't lie, I still miss my mama, but as my kitty guardian angel - she is always here.

This picture of a Thanksgiving cat was on a piece of mail we received recently, and I've heard some people say it looks like me. I think that's silly! I would never wear such a lame hat!!

With a full belly and a full heart I must now go take a Thanksgiving Day nap.

Much meow love,

Holy Holes, Aye!

MEOWZERS has this been a CRAZY week!!

On Thursday, I was put back in that crazy traveling box and in the car I went again. I'm really starting to hate that thing, but fortunately this time I wasn't going to the vet. I actually was getting to go have a slumber party at my sister Karen and Peggy's house. The reason I had to go over there though is even more crazy!

My magnificent house in Las Vegas had to get new piping! Yuppers, they had to replace the whole system. Fortunately, Niece and The Boy didn't have to pay a dime as it was the builders fault, but it was not fun for anyone.

As you can see they cut lots of holes in the walls. And from what I hear it was non-stop noise and people. The girls stayed at the house, but all 4 of them had to share the only bedroom not touched by the madness. They said it was crowded and I heard Frankie was not happy. I think that my slumber party was way more fun!

Here are some of the photos of the holes:
Newbe is inspecting the damage.

Here is the Casita - my favorite room!

So as you can see it was a wacky week, but soon our house will be back to normal and purrfect!

Pawsitively yours,
Boo Man

What is a guinea pig, aye?

So on our fridge are some photos of what Niece calls, "guinea pigs". I don't know what a guinea pig is, but I guess Niece had 3 of them before she had cats. Lila lived with them when she was adopted, and then Frankie and Newbe met 2 of them. Niece says they're about the size of a kitten. That sounds cute to me! Niece says they also make this sound called a "wheek". She said if I thought Keebler was bad at meowing for food, that I should hear a guinea pig go crazy wheeking for lettuce. She said it was hilarious!

When Lila lived with the piggies, she'd take a nap on the floor and then Niece would let the piggies out and they'd run by the sleeping Lila and nip at her tail and run away. Lila would pop her head up and there'd be no one there. Kinda funny if you ask me! Niece says that Lila was a good kitty with the piggies and only chased one a few times. Lila would never hurt a piggie. Niece said she wanted to groom one like a kitten, but the piggies didn't want any cat slobber on them!

Niece said her first guinea pig was Harriet. She was a beautiful and smart girl with blue eyes. Niece said she was fiesty like the Italians in her family. MOL (meow out loud) that is funny! Outside of Keebler, Niece says she's never seen an animal have such a human soul. Harriet was very special. One time, Harriet ate a plastic bag, which I have to say I like them too! But for Harriet it was very dangerous. She ended up with an intestinal blockage and she almost died! Niece saved her though with some magic potions a vet recommended, and she lived a nice long piggie life. Niece says her favorite thing about Harriet was her ears. She had super pink piggie ears.

Her second guinea pig was Maggie. She got Maggie when she was just a guniea piglette (well that might not be the right term but she was so tiny). Niece says that Maggie had the funniest piggie purr. I didn't know they purred like us! Maggies whole body would shake like a Tickle-Me-Elmo. Niece says that Maggie was so kind and gentle. Kind of like Frankie. Maggie was shy but loved to snuggle.

Her third guniea pig was Chestnut. Chestnut was such a beautiful color. Niece says she was a little crazy in the head but so much fun. She could be stubborn too. That sounds like Newbe and Keebler put together in a piggie body! Niece said that Chestnut was the December piggie of the month one year on a guinea pig website. Guess she was really super beautiful to have received such an honor!

One thing I think is cool is that they had their own log cabins! YES, you heard me, their own log cabins! That's something rich people have and there were 3 cabins for them. They also had their own couch and chair! What's hilarious is that when Newbe was adopted, she got onto their couch and took a nap. She must have squished herself up good! Those couches weren't very big. The piggies also had soft beds that Niece would scoop them up in and they would get combed. Maggie liked to climb in them and take a nap too. Boy were they spoiled... ok, I guess us kitties are spoiled too...

What is really amazing is that you can litter box train guinea pigs. Niece said that they would use specially designed corner litter boxes when they were out roaming around. Now those are some smart critters! Niece said like cats, they also love the sun and would often sit and munch hay while getting all warm and toasty.

All of Niece's piggies are in heaven now munching away on romaine lettuce and enjoying the sunshine. The spot in Denver, in Niece and The Boy's backyard, where the piggies were buried sprouted it's own baby Aspen tree. Niece thought that was very fitting! They would have loved to have their own tree.

I'm sad I didn't meet her piggies, but I'm happy to have learned what they are! We are all such magnificent creatures on this Earth - American, Canadian and Guinean!

Pawsitively Yours,

Been Busy, Aye!

Howdy Howdy!

Sorry it has been so long since I've written on my blog. I've been one busy fella.

First, Niece and The Boy finished the window seat, and let me tell you, that is one fabulous window seat! I have officially moved from the casita to the window seat. Now "why", would you ask, would I give up a luxurious suite for a seat? Well let me tell you why: I can sleep on it, I can nap on it, I can sit on it, I can watch birds from it, I can watch television there, I can get afternoon sunshine, and I can hang out with everyone since they are always in that room... the thing is amazing. Outside of the vacuum pouch salmon and catnip cigars, I'm not sure anything better has been invented.

Then we had some visitors. The Boy's family came to see us. That was a lot of fun because everyone thought I was one cool fella. I appreciate that they're smart people who know a good lookin' Canadian guy when they see one, aye. Even more fun was an air bed in the casita. I think we should have an air bed in the casita all the time, even though it would then be hard to chose whether to be on the air bed or on the window seat. Here I am enjoying its awesomeness!

Another cool thing about the airbed was blankets! I love getting under blankets. It's like having my own tent or fort or cave. Here's a photo of me burrowing like a ground hog.

Yup life is pretty good. Lila and I have become good friends. Keebler is still my buddy. Frankie doesn't come around much, but I like her anyhow. And then there's Newbe... our relationship has it ups and downs, but for the most part we're living a much more peaceful life. I'll never understand that crazy American girl, but I have respect for how fast she can run up the stairs. I'm getting faster too! Which is good for my work outs and my heart!

Speaking of which, I see Dr. P. again tomorrow for a check up. They have given me some medicine that is supposed to help keep me healthy! That's good because I have lots of and lots of years to sit on that window seat!!

I saw Peggy Sue recently. She's doing great. She loves her buddy Charlie and she's all fluffy for winter, which is good because her summer haircuts are kinda silly, but it keeps her nice and cool when she's rolling around in the grass. Which might I add, I can see our grass from my window seat and the birds that are on it. I love the window seat!!

Hope everyone had a great Halloween - Niece and The Boy don't pass out candy, which I'm glad. It's so crazy to hear that doorbell every 2 seconds. Us cats, we hate that. Doorbells are bad - they're NOT window seats...

Next up, Thanksgiving!! I can't wait to see how much turkey Keebler gets from Niece and The Boy. That girl can beg for food like no other kitty I've seen. You'd think she was a dog!!

Pawsitively yours,
Window Seat Boo Man
