Happy Holidays!

Hello Everyone!
  Hope you all had a very Merry Christmas, and are enjoying a Happy Holiday season. As usual, Mom took a break from blogging, so eventually I had to bite her into action. It worked! All is fine here in the desert. We finally got the cat enclosure built outside for the thing, (Mom calls Georgie.) See picture. Georgie does not like to be out there alone. He is such a big baby, in my opinion. He gets to come in the house and run around too, but only when I'm off for a snooze. He also gets the whole upstairs! I really love coming around the corner of the glass door that separates us, and scaring him.
We had a happy Christmas this year. Mom got me crab cakes, scallops, and some shrimp. I'm licking my chops as we speak. (See picture.)
Hope all is well with all of you, and hope 2012 holds many wonderful surprises!
Happy New Year!
Love, Tig, Mom (and Georgie!)

Long time, no post

Me--lounging on the couch
Hi Everyone,
    Well, it has been over 2 months since Mom posted! Truthfully, she has no one to blame but herself. She was very sad at Whicky Wuddler going to the Bridge, and then another kitty relative of mine, Zoe, recently went too. Finally, my Grandma's mom (My mom's grandma) passed away.
Mom was very sad, and also busy with work. So..lots going on!

 Georgie is still living with us, as mom has a crazy neighbor who thought it was really funny to sick her Rottweiler on Georgie continually. He lives upstairs, and I live downstairs. I don't like him very much at all!
Mom and I wanted to share a funny poem from a card that Mom's dad sent us. It is a kitty's point of view on life.

"Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray this cushy life to keep.
I pray for toys that look like mice,
and sofa cushions, soft and nice!
I pray for gourmet kitty snacks,
and someone nice to scratch my back,
For windowsills all warm and bright,
For shadows to explore at night.
I pray I'll always stay real cool,
And keep the secret feline rule...
To NEVER tell a human that
The world is really

Happy Fall and Happy Halloween everybody!
Love, Tigger, mom (and Georgie) :)

Best Intentions...

Well...mom had good intentions to be a busy blogger over the summer, but it got away from her, with classes, etc. Now she is back at school. BUMMER.
Anyway, good news on my front. I just had to go to the V-E-T for my yearly check up. I have quite a reputation at the V-E-T, so they always prepare themselves!
Anyway, long story short--kidney values have improved. Thyroid has not improved,--gotten a tiny bit worse--but probably due to my refusal of meds. So...mom thinks she is sneaky--she has switched both kinds of meds to forms she thinks I won't know about. (pills in meatballs and pill pockets.) I humored her today, and ate both. I'll show her tomorrow! The V-E-T is always shocked at how I continue to do so well at such an "age."
 She is still taking care of the "animal" --the slightly feral kitty she calls Georgie. We have had quite a go of it, with MANY ups and downs since the weather has been so brutally hot, but Georgie to Mom's delight, and my dismay is hanging in there. Mom thinks he is quite lovely, but she knows who is still the king of her heart. (ME)
She bought a big dog crate for him, and finally talked him into sometimes coming into it at night. She & I sleep in another room, so I guess that is okay for now. I'm allowing a picture of him for a short time on this blog. I've told her she will have to delete it soon. I'm only allowing it, as other bloggers have asked to see him. Believe me, he's not nearly as handsome as me. We'll let you be the judge! (And don't answer unless you think I'm better lookin'!!!)
Okay, ta ta for now. Hope everyone is doing very well.
Tigger and Mom

Here's Sweet Tigger

Finally mom is off for summer vacation! She is taking some classes however, so I took it upon myself to get "ON" the computer! (computer keyboard that is.) Luckily I was able to hang my feet off of the desk to cool off a bit. It is getting verrry hot in the desert--but it is after all, June!
  I got bored with this after a bit, as it was not annoying Mom, so I chewed on her until she took me outside. (See below.) Hope all is well. Mom & I will be along shortly to visit.
Purrs and kisses to all,

I know it has been over a month since Mom posted. I have been biting, howling, scratching, tearing, and causing general mayhem to get her to post, but she just says in a whiny voice, "I've been busy." Well, thanks to a rather spectacular chomp from me, and a gentle nudge from Whicky, she is FINALLY posting again.
  It has been a whirlwind since she last posted. First, she left me for over 12 hours, 'cause "whoop de doo" she and her friends got to go to the Ellen Show. THEN, this last weekend, she left me, her sweet baboo, for THE WEEKEND  to go to Washington State for her sister's party! How rude!
  Luckily, I have a kitty nanny, whom I adore, and who adores me. She (the kitty nanny) is always amazed, that I'm still alive, kickin' and talking up a storm!
  I am doing fine...still on both my meds, and stirring up trouble whenever things get a little too quiet. Oh, who am I kidding, I'm stirring up trouble whether things are quiet or not.
  The ragdoll named Georgie is still hanging around, and much to my dismay, mom is still taking care of it. Mom says he is very sweet. I think he is a very, very bad thing.
Anyway, Mom says school is out in about 4 weeks. She "plans" to do more blogging when that is over. She will come visit more then.
Soon I will have to type my adventures...as I can't rely on my mom to keep you all updated :(.
Hope everyone is healthy, happy, and enjoying some good kitty naps, sunshine, and the more than occasional naughtiness!
Much love,
Tigger (and mom)

Grandma's Visit

Hi Everyone!
   Grandma came and visited during the last week.
Mom and I were very sad to see her go, but I had a lovely time with her.
Here she is giving me a smooch, and secretly trying to cut mats out of my loooong hair.
I was very sad after Grandma left, so I tried to take a nap behind the curtain, but Mom found me.
I will try and get around to see everyone this weekend. I blame it on Mom. Hope you all are doing well!
Lots of Love,
Tigger and Mom

Marvelous Monday

Hi Everyone,
   I'm so excited, 'cause mom had today off. I forgot it was President's Day. I hate to admit it, but I like having her here. She's fun to snuggle with on the couch. I'm a tiny bit annoyed with her, as she's still taking care of that stray kitty. She can't get over how beautiful he is. (growl!)
Anyway, hope you all are well.
(PS-Mom says she already knows how beautiful I AM.)
(PSS-The Grandma is coming in 24 days!)

Happy VERY LATE New Year Everyone!

Hope you all are doing well, this fine 2011! (here I am pouting in the bathroom cabinet, after I  had to open the door!)
Mom has been slacking...or for better terms--she has been taking care of another cat! I have been her prince for over 20 years, and what do you know, a stray, and yes I must admit, very large, beautiful Siamese mix has been hanging around, and weaseling his way into her heart! (I have forbidden her to post his picture on MY blog.) (she says, "yet...")
 I WILL HAVE NONE OF IT! I still have my say, so I have been making it very LOUD and clear that he is not allowed in the house, nor anywhere near me! Mom has been letting him live in the garage, but soon it will be too hot for that. She is praying I will accept him, but I keep telling her--good luck with that!
  Mom is hoping for advice...I say DO NOT GIVE HER ANY MERCY.
Wishing you all a Happy January, and a wonderful 2011 (if a little late.)
Tigger (and mom)
