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.

recently, we furry bambinos noticed that many kitties in the blogosphere have been hanging out in their official dorfington fish stanley qa tested forty paws ham-micks. well, we convinced mommy to order ham-micks for us!

our ham-micks arrived a week ago thursday. padre and i gave the box a good sniff.

Gotta sniff the box to see if its okay

mommy put the ham-micks together while we snoopervised. padre, panda bear, and i helped out by sorting the materials.

panda bear also helped by taste-testing the ham-mick parts while mommy was putting them together.

Panda helps arrange the materials

padre performed a safety check to make sure that mommy put the ham-mick together right. padre rubbed his paws with gusto, while applying pressure on the fleece fabric. padre does not have front claws, so he did not scratch the fabric.

then padre settled in to test its comfort level, and made sure that all the parts were securely in place.

next, mommy assembled the pink ham-mick. padre performed the safety check on the pink ham-mick too.
