EEEEEK!!! A monster!!!!!

Dis iz da Hall-o-ween franken-Max
Here iz hiz scary poem (which I penned fur him)


I am da monster known az Franken-Max,
I likes to come in & eat my mouse-ee snax,
If you gotz to go tick or treatz,
Ya better bring me back sumpin’ to eatz!

I am da ghostee of cat-world Hall-o-ween,
Hide yur lizard heartz & your quiverin’ spleenz,
My appetite fur meat knowz no boundz,
If yur a wimp, better stay offa my ground!

I am da monster known az Franken-Max,
I likes to scare lil’ kittenz wit my teef of wax,
If you go out in the dark this night,
Ya better pre-pare fur da most awful of frights!!!

Teazin’ Tuez-day

I yam still bein’ a good boy. Even da bad Burr-man waz good! We just sat on da couch & waited fur da momee to come home from da Auntie Cue show & sent buckets o’ L-O-V-E to Miss Peach. Ok, I ex-agger-ated a little…we did go check out da new bed in momee & dadeez room… more on dat later.

Tomorrow I will try to post a pic of what da mommie brought home from da Auntie Cue. Hint: more catz!!!! Ok, dey iz not real catz, which iz a furry good ting fur da momee! I tink da Burr-man & I would have to lift da tailz around da house a few timez if da beanz brought any more catz home.

Dadee waz a furry good cat-sitter. He fed us our flavo-rite Fancy Feast Medley (tuna of course) & bought us a new nip mouse-ee. He let me & da mad Burr-man in & out & in & out & in & out of da house all weekend, 25 timez a day. He let us scratchee on da brand NEW mattress! Although, when he saw us hangin’ out in da bed-room, eyen’ da new sky-bed, we got to go out of da house again.

Da momee haz told me dat she iz so bizzy at work dat it will be difficult to do da blog dis week. But she promised me dat we will vizit our frendz in da cat blogo-spear. I should hope so! Dis work ting iz really gettin’ in da way of my creative nature. Ptooey! A double hairball on da work ting!

Fried Fry-day

I yam feelin’ blue today. Da momee iz gone again wit her suitcase ting, headed to da Portland Auntie Cue expo-position. She iz gone until Sun-day! Of course, I cannot do da blog wit out her comp-hooter.
At least da dadee haz da brainz not to go to dis expo-ting. I wonder why da Auntie Cue iz so important dat da momee has to leave us catz??? She sez it’s because it’s in her blood. ? How did da Auntie Cue get into momeez blood?

I also feel blue ‘cuz our frend Miss Peach is not feelin’ well. We all lovez da Miss Peach ‘cuz she waz one of da furry firstee frendz we made on da blog. We just ask all our other frendz to go to Miss Peache’z today & vizit her & send her momee love & hugz & Tonz o’ purrz.

Da mad Burr-man & I are gonna sit right here on da couch togedder & not even fight, until momee comez home & Miss Peach getz better!

Thurz-day Thirteen

In da blog today, I will share 13 tingz about Auntie Stinkie & her break-fatz time.

In da pix, you can see how she haz taken over my lastest issue of Saveur! Itz all about turkeyz & da other stuff we eatz in November. Dis iz difficult fur me to admit, but even at 15, da Auntie Stinkie iz truly da Alpha Cat of our house-hold.

Okeedokee. Here iz da 13 tingz she doez at her break-fatz time:

1) She sits on da kitchen table & waits fur momee to finish da dressin’ fur work routine.

2) When da momee comez out to da kitsch-hen, Auntie Stinkie sez “Waaah! Waaah!”

3) Dis iz repeated repeated-lee, in stac-cat-o cadence.

4) When da momee reaches into da fridge, “Waah! Waah!”

5) When da momee cracks open da eggz, “Waah! Waah!”

6) When da momee flipz da eggz, “Waah! Waah!”

7) Az da momee blots da olive oilz from da eggz, you guessed it “Waah! Waah!”

8) What da Auntie Stinkie iz telling momee iz: “Hurry up! You iz takin too long! Hurry up! I want my eggz!”

9) Den da momee sprinklez a tiny bit of salt on da eggz, but not too much, ‘cuz dis iz not good fur Auntie Stinkie or fur da momee’z blood pressuring.

10) Den da momee sits wit Auntie Stinkie at da table.

11) Den Auntie Stinkie reaches out her tiny paw & swipes it at da momee.

12) Da momee must eat her part of da eggz fast, ‘cuz Auntie Stinkie will start to stick her nozie into da plate. Auntie Stinkie only likes eggz wit yolkz dat are “eazy.”

13) Den da plate wit da eazy yolk iz all Auntie Stinkie’z. Hoo-boy, doez dat Auntie Stinkie have da momee dis-a-plined!

Tuez-day Toez-day

Here iz my brudder, da mad Burr-man Maxi, enjoying hiz toezez.
If he tinks dat doze toezez qwalify fur a Tuez-day blog, I tink he iz much mistaken.

If he had shown hiz BIG toe, da one wit about TWENTY GIANT toezez on da one foot, den I would say he qwalified. But here, he looks so sweet & in-oh-cent, you would never believe how he really treatz me. But I have decided to give him an extra chance…just in case he ever decidez to be a nice brudder instead of a mad-bad one.

Manly pumpkin day

I can’t belleve it! Momee brought dis big pump-da-kin ting home from a local farmer & said she wanted my pic next to it. I yam obliged to do deze photo shootz wit no renumerationz (& dat includez ZERO Greeniez!) I will tell you right now, dat pump-da-kin iz no kin of mine! Do not ex-pect moi to carve dis ting! I hear dey are somewhat slymee and squiggly inside.

When momee first reskewed me, she thought I waz a gurl! (Brainball, are you listenin’?) & so, she named me “Pumpkin.” Hmmph. Doez I look like a pump-da-kin to you?
I tink I have had enough of dis nonsense & will retreat to a more welcoming envy-ron-mint, like da sofa. I will be much more manly on da sofa, dreamin’ about da beauty-full Mini.

You can see I yam more delicious den choco cake!

If you wish to see dat purty Miss Mini dat I yam dancin' wit in da video below, go vizit her at da House of da (mostly) Black Cats.

I yam pooped & vicy-toria-poos! What a time! What a whirly-wind of a date. Da tuna pie dat momee fixed waz de-vine... or iz dat de-veined? No, I tink dat iz fur shrimp.

Dr Tweety & da Mini go Whoo-hoo on der firstee date!

Frazzled Fry-day

I yam tryin' to be more generous to da mad Burr-man Maxi. Look how tired he iz from patrollin' da neigh-bore-hood last night.

He waz soakin' wet from da rain & so waz I! When we came inside, momee dried us off wit da towelz. We didn't even swipe at each otherz cuz we waz so glad to be dry. Oh we waz pitifulz! (wink wink)

Da moral of da story? Run around in da rain & momee will feel sorry fur you!

Stormy Thurz-day

Itz a furry cold & grey day in da Orey-gun Willamette Valley & so we are all hidin' out inside while da momee iz at work.

Iris decided she would medy-tater on spiderz in da webz. I figgure dat iz almost az good az Daisy & her gatorz & lizardz. Spiderz can be furry vishus too, specially da BIG onez dat come down & eat da kibblez. Dey prac-ti-cally eat your teef!

Iris likez to eat deze tingz. I just leave der GIANT corpses fur momee when she gets home from work. Momee? Are you dere? Lookee what I got fur you!!!!

Tuez-day uze your toez day

I yam groomin’ myself to-day, ‘cuz it iz raining dawgz here & dey are BIG dawgz….at least da size of eleph-antz. Momee finally re-lented & let me in when da Miss Marianne waz vizitin’. If da mad Burr-man can be in, den I should be let in too!

But look at da gunk stuck to my furz. What iz dat? I tink I sat on a spider! (Or did it sit down beside me?) & Right in da middle of me compozin’ a love song!

I yam gonna put da finishing touchez on da furz. Dey must be nice & floofy before I askz a new frend out fur tuna. (Ahem, Mini, are you lookin’?)

Now dat I got dat ugly ting off, I tink I will play da piano on momeez pants & da furry nice sofa throw. Oh- I lovez to play da piano. An itty-bitty ode to da nice & full-figgured Mini!

Manly Meezer Mon-day!

I yam givin’ dis here blog to my brudder, da mad Burr-man. Maximillian iz furry manly in hiz meezer suit. He doez not talk to da blog so I haz to inter-pret hiz high-pitched meowzingz. Hmmmmph. What iz hiz problem any wayz? He got all ex-cited when he saw da momeez frend from Switzerland, da beauty-full Miss Marianne. He walked right up to her when she gotz out of da car & helped sniff her baggagez clean. Den he escorted her into da house like a real man oughtta, wit hiz tail straight up & hiz baggy pantz quite floofy. He iz sooo charmin’ to da ladiez, dat Maxi.

Dadee sayz he used to be momeez “man” before dadee came along. But you should be aware dat Maxi haz a terry-bull habit of liftin’ hiz tail on da ladeez pursez when dey are not watching. (& he iz always harrasin’ yourz truly!) Do not lovez hiz hand-some manly-ness too much!

So da first ting Miss Marianne doez when she iz inside da door iz open up a BIG packagez fur da five catz & inside iz a 12-pack of yellow & orange & blue & red & magenta colored ballz wit ringey-dingiez inside of ‘em! Delilah started chasin ‘em all around da room ‘cuz she could not decide which colorz she liked best. Oh we just lovez da Miss Marianne!!! She iz sooo much fun & she loves us all. She even brought her homemade fig & pear & walnut bread. I did not tell her I yam not fond of figz!!!!

Man o' man-o! I yam so glad it iz Fry-day. Momee will now quit scrubbin' da floorz & runnin' around wit da broom & dustin' da counterz & cleanin' up da pee-wee on da stairz. Her bestee frend Miss Marianne from Switz-her-land iz comin' today... & Miss Marianne lovez us kitteez furry much. SO I don't quite getz it why momee cleanz up all da furz & pee-wee. Izn't dat apart of us? & den I got kickeed out of da house wit da Bad Bur-man so we cannot pee-wee before Miss Marianne getz here!!! How am I suppozed to do dis blog if I yam lookin' in da sliding glass window from da other side?????

Sheesh! & look at da pic! I yam on da table while Momee iz snuggling wit Iris, & da mad Burr-man & I are waiting fur our kibblez. Dis iz goin' too far. I yam startin' a generul strike. No more pozin' fur pix unless momee lets me in fur da day! & I yam not promisin' to be in a good mood.

Tuez-day, mini-malizt Tuez-day

I yam going to kick back & enjoy dis day...even though momee iz grumpee. She doez not like da over-cats foggy-nez.

She tinks we all ought to be cruisin' down a tropy-cal river where der are plenty o' sun rayz & nice cool waterz.

Personally, I do not care fur boatz or tropical placez. I do not care dat it iz foggy. I sleep much better in dis kind of weather...seee? & dis way, I an ignore momee if she screechez about sumpin' dat da OTHER catz iz doin. Becuz I yam an angel. (Wink, wink!)

Instead, she cut dadeez fur, she moved furniture around, she cleaned up kittee barf & pee-wee, she went to do da Costco ting, she washed da cloze, she cooked da break-fazt, & den she started building a cloze rakoon to put der summer cloze away on, & den she shopped some more, & den she read some Joyce Carol Oatz short storrez & den she played wit Delilah & den she washed her fur & den FINALLY, she thought about me & fixed da roastie wild salmon. Sheesh! No wonder my eyez are flamin'!

Now she is lookin over what she did. Pillowz on da floor, chair cover on da floor, & you know da reazon fur all dis? Do you see da boogie mat in da corner? Dat ting haz da NIP in it!!! I tink Iris needz to go to rehab fur awhile. She iz crazee on dat stuff. Of courze, I would NEVER do dese kindz of tingz myself!

We finally got da Blogger to co-oper-ate. Tanks fur leavin' us notes fur en-courage-mintz. We like courage mintz...dey is furry good.
