Excuses for not working on our bloggy

1

Aunt Patty and Uncle Chris did the M word.  From Pittsburgh Pennsylvanicat to Columbia Meowssouri.  Two weeks ago.

Our poor traumatized feline cousins!  Poor Rainbow, Muse, Cinnamon, and Toast!  Even Bruiser, the woofie, had to endure being cooped up in rooms that moved for days and days!  And to think that Mom and Dad (gasp!) helped.  How could they stoop so low?!

Over the next few days, we Furry Bambinos will report on the events of the cross-country M word, as we experienced them.  If you want to know what stupid stuff Mom and Dad were up to, go read their stupid blog.

We should have suspected that something was up when the big rectangular boxes with zippers started appearing all over the house.  Mom and Dad put lots of clothes into them.  They even brought home two new PTU’s (Prisoner Transport Units) and two new comfy cat beds.  Meerkat slept in the pink comfy cat bed over the weekend, thinking it was for her.

Then on the morning of Monday the 28th of July, Mom and Dad mysteriously left.  When they returned, they had a ginormous room that moves with them!  This is what it looked like:

The Ginormous Room That Moves

It made all of us a bit nervous, what with the ginormous room that moves and all.  Mom and Dad put all of their rectangular boxes with zippers into it.  Then they left us all alone.  Hoomph!  And I wanted Mom to help us blog!  Well, at least they didn’t drag us along!  We had a relaxing day, napping, watching the birdies and squirrels, and munching on crunchies.  We knew that Aunt Deb would visit us, give us our stinky goodness and crunchies, and play with us, so we weren’t worried.  And with Mom and Dad away, maybe we could try to get a few cats together for a par-tay!

Sorry that we have not posted in awhile.  Mommy says something about her job keeping her very busy.  Sigh.  She really needs to get her priorities straight!

In the meantime, we have a new source of entertainment here: The DeLuxe Bird Feeder Station.  Mom and Dad bought it at the local Wild Birds Unlimited store. The real name of the bird feeder is the WBU Advanced Pole System. It’s really cool, and keeps us entertained for hours.  The right side has a regular feeder for tasty regular birds. On top is a nifty house that the squirrels have pretty much claimed as theirs. Check it out:

The left side has a special feeder for tasty yellow birds like this one. Mom says the bird is a Gold Finch.

And now that it is warm here in Northeast O-Hi-o, windows have been left open for our sniffing pleasure!  Here is a photo of all of us Bambinos sniffing a squirrel:

In other news, I have a confession to make.  I LOVE Mommy’s shoes and slippers!!  It’s a little embarrassing, but I just can’t help it, I LOVE to cuddle with her shoes and slippers.

Well, that’s all the Bambino News for now!

well, daddy is still working on fixing our bloggy. he has to hunt down all of our photos and reloadify them. he has found most of the photos, but he is still looking for the remaining ones. and some of the settings are still messed up. hmmph! daddy has not spent every waking moment attending to the very important task of fixing our blog!  something about “working in the yard”, “planting”, “doing his radio show“, “cleaning his office”…  you see what i have to put up with here?

in other news, we have been watching “meerkat manor: the next generation” on friday nights. i sit in my official forty paws ham-mick to watch.

i went to animal planet’s web site and took the “which meerkat are you?” personality quiz.  (well, duh, i am meerkat!)  but anyway, they have a quiz that you can take to see which of the meerkats on meerkat manor you are most like.  turns out i am maybelline!  this is what it says:

When Rocket Dog clawed her way to the top of the Whiskers mob, her sister Maybelline defected and formed her own little splinter group, the Aztecs . . . right in the Whiskers’ backyard. Now Maybelline is struggling to become a leader, a mother and defeat her biggest enemy yet . . . her sister.

well, of course, i am a dominant female.  😉

there is all sorts of cool stuff on the meerkat manor web site. check out this nifty widget thingy i found there:

the meerkat manor web site is so much fun! you can play the grab a snack game, watch educational video clips, and read about past shows.  purrrrrrrs, meerkat.
