Raining Us And Dogs, Aye!

My oh my is it wet here in the desert! Holy meowzers! From my window seat I can see rain on the ground, rain on the trees, rain on the grass, rain in the air... and worst of all there are NO birds out there to see! I mean I don't blame them, getting wet is about as fun as going to the vet, but I sure do miss seeing them fly around. Hopefully though they're warm and dry in their little bird shelters.

The other problem with the rain is that Keebler and Newbe can't go out to the garage and sit on Niece and The Boy's cars. See every night after dinner, they like to go out and sit on the warm car hoods, but because the cars are wet, they're not allowed out to the garage right now. And man are they grumpy! I'll be glad when the cars are dry again, and maybe Keebler's paws will be cleaner after she comes back in now that the rain cleaned Niece's SUV! Sometimes it looks like she's been out there changing tires.

I got to go out to the garage once, but Niece saw me lick the bottom of her truck and I got grounded... forever... I was just seeing what dirt in Las Vegas tasted like - geeez! I guess though there are yucky chemicals and she didn't want me to get hurt. She's a good guardian.

Well, I'm off to watch more of the rain! I hear we may see the sun tomorrow and maybe even a bird or two.

Pawsitively Yours,

Cat Litter Madness, Aye?

I think we've become kitty product testers around here. Over the past week one of our litter boxes was filled with a very strange, very messy item called Feline Pine.

The gist of this product is that it is all natural with no chemicals or perfumes like clay litter has, and it is better for the environment. (I guess they have to mine clay from the Earth, which is damaging, but pine trees are renewable.) I'm all for not licking that yucky clay dust and bad chemicals off my feet, but Feline Pine was a little too out there for me... and the other kitties agree.

It was basically saw dust... like if you went to a pine tree cutting factory and swept the floors and put it into bags to sell. The upside is the box it came in was very light, the downside is the product is too light. It was everywhere in the house! We kicked it out of the box, we tracked it down the hall, it stuck to people's shoes... what a mess!! It was starting to look like we lived at a country western bar where they purposely put sawdust on the floors. Don't get me wrong, I like to Boot-Scoot-Boogie, but this was just ridiculous.

As for odor control it did ok, but it got kinda gummy in our box and it was hard to sift. I guess these crazy Feline Pine people also make a heavier, pellet type of litter too but that stuff is for guinea pigs and ferrets, not kitty cats. Niece says we're not even going to try that one.

So this week, we're trying a corn based litter by Littermaid. They're the people who make our automatic litterboxes. We love those boxes cause they clean themselves (it's like magic), but I'm not sure what I think about corn litter. It kinda smells like Grape Nuts the cereal! We'll see how this week goes, but fortunately it's heavier like clay litter so hopefully it won't end up all over the place.

So in the end Feline Pine gets 5 paws down.

Stay tuned for more kitty product reviews!

Boo's Movie Review, Aye

Hello Hello!

Boo Man here with his first movie review! I watch a lot of television with the family now, thanks to the window seat being in the room with the biggest televion, and recently I saw a movie that was just hilarious. It was called "G-Force".

It is a live action movie with animated guinea pigs and it is just brilliant! And I'm so happy I learned what guinea pigs were prior to seeing this movie because it made it just that more enjoyable (see my November blog posting about Niece's guinea pigs if you haven't read it already).

G-Force is a good movie for several reasons:
1.) The animation is pawsitively stunning. They have caught every tiny feature of a guinea pig right down to the way they walk to the little blood vessels in their ears when the sun shines on them.
2.) The story is very interesting. They're trying to save the world!
3.) It's very funny. They dance and make jokes - good times.
4.) The music is great. Real shake your furry booty kinda stuff.

So if you haven't seen it and like to see animals that are spies and part of a secret FBI department that has the latest and greatest guinea pig spy technology, than this movie is for you. Go rent it at your video store today!

Don't forget the popcorn!

What Is A Nebraska, Aye?

So around these parts, I hear lots of yelling at the television. This is new to me and I'm not sure why people yell at a box that doesn't yell back, but humans are pretty silly sometimes!

Through my undercover observations from the window seat (where I look like I'm sleeping but I really have one eye open... I'm sneaky like that), I have come to discover that they always yell at the same thing - football. Now I don't think football is as cool as hockey, but here in America it is very popular. Around our house, it is college football. I think it's neat that Niece and The Boy went to college - that's a lot of hard work! I guess in the end all that stress makes you yell at televised college football games for the rest of your life! MOL (meow out loud!!).

This year Niece's team, the Arizona Wildcats, did really well and went to a big celebration game called a "bowl". Unfortunately, this bowl wasn't filled with salmon or kibble.

The other team at this Bowl was the Nebraska Cornhuskers. One of Niece's best friends from high school lives in Nebraska and is a huge fan. So Niece made a bet. If her team won, her friend had to wear an Arizona shirt and take a photo, if Nebraska won, she had to wear a Nebraska shirt and take a photo.

Well some how I ended up in the shirt! WHAT?!! I'm not sure how I got pulled into this mess, but in the end we had a pretty funny photo to post on Facebook. Here's the picture of me modeling the shirt. I think I look good in red, but Niece says it should be Arizona red, not Nebraska red.

I hate to break it to Niece though, but Arizona didn't even score one single point at this big game so I wouldn't want to wear their shirt. MOL!!! She said that was ok though because she doesn't want to wear it right now either. Guess she's pretty disgusted, but not enough to wear this crazy corn-thingy shirt. What is a "Cornhusker" anyway? The midwest is wacky.

Pawsitively Yours,
Boo Crawford (just like the super model Cindy Crawford!)

Happy New Year, Aye!

Happy 2010 to all my Boo's Buddies!!

I'd like to think that this will be the decade of the Boo Man! I am so much more exciting than those Chinese horoscope animals.

I was able to celebrate the new year at 8pm Pacific Time since it was midnight on the Island by then. That made it very easy for me to then nap the rest of the night away. We had a quiet New Year's, but it was nice that all of us were hanging out watching the crazies on television that were down on the Las Vegas strip and in New York City. I think it was a little warmer in Vegas than in New York.

My goals for 2010 are:

1.) Eat more salmon, aye!
2.) Nap more often
3.) Keep chasing the laser pointer as it is helping me lose weight!
4.) Continue to get along with Newbe - we have a mutal understanding now
5.) Have fun chillin' out with Lila - we have a nice time on the window seat
6.) Hang out with Keebler more - she's the cool one
7.) Actually see Frankie - she hides a lot
8.) Get lots of hugs from Niece and The Boy - they are hug machines and I dig it!
9.) Watch the birds from my window seat. Our back yard is so lovely.
10.) Roll around on the floor and be the funny man that I am!

I hope each of you continue to have health, wealth and a pawsitively whiskertastic time in 2010!

Love always,
The Boo Man

p.s. Enjoy the new blog style for 2010!
