OH BOY!!! It's my turn! I'm on my way to Colorado wif the torch! I packed some stinky goodness and some water and it's sunny here so it should be a good day. This is the ferstest time I've ever done gone to see ofer kitties by myself - I'm 'acited and nervous all at the same time!
Harper, Ramona and Brendan hadded a good night. Trixie and Brendan snuggled and cuddled while Sammy gotted some sumo wrestling tips from Harper and Ramona. They are furry good at the Sumo wrestling. Harper and Sammy hadded a match later on, while Ramona cheered on her brofur.
Then the kittens, Brendan and Trixie wented to bed
Sammy and Trixie maded shur that they had efurryfing they needed during the night. I was too 'acited to sleep. I hope I'm not too tired when I gets there. It will be a long day!
Egypt, Dino, Tuxie, Midnight, and Maxie, I'm on my way! I can't wait to try the mousie icy treat wif catnip flakes and birdie sprinkles!!!
Ms Zuleme and Mr Olaf, Mommy maded shur that Brendan, Ramona and Harper were in their cushy ferst class teleporting seats and that they said "transport me home" 7 times (the little ones needed help counting). Hopefully they will be home furry soon!

MOMMY!!! MOMMY!!! Brendan, Ramona and Harper are here!!
They said that they hadded a good run but now they are hungry and sleepy, and hot. It was hot hot hot out today. Mommy has some nice cool water and some yummy stinky goodness, and some ham if they are 'llowed to have it. Trixie is 'acited to meet Brendan! Miss Ramona is shur purrty! And Harper is the nicest little kitten! Brendan is furry protective of them!
We is going to have some dinner and a nap now. If it's ok with Olaf and Zuleme, they can all stay at our house tonight and then when I leave wif the torch in the morning, Mommy will take them to the airport to fly home.
Harper, Ramona and Brendan are on their way here wif the Catolympics Torch! YAY!!!!!!!
We have plenty of stinky goodness waiting, and some snuggly blankies for naps. I am so 'acited!
Mommy also readed me somefing from the Catolympics page that has me a little scairt about the cat traps that Agent Dino is werking on finding and dismantling, wif the Feline Bureau of Inves-ta-ga-shun. I hope that they are all found 'afore I make my run out there. Maybe I should bring Sammy for pro-tek-shun? Oh, maybe not, I'm 'apposed to be a big boy now. I just don't know what to do, 'cept wait by the door for Miss Ramona, Harper the Pork Chop and Brendan.

All of us here at Meezer Tails would like to take a moment to remember all the brave men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice to keep all of us free, and to also honor those currently serving our country here and all over the world so that we remain free.
Thank you and Happy Memorial Day
In Flanders Fields
By: Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, MD (1872-1918)
IN FLANDERS FIELDS the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

We hadded 'puter problems last night, so we couldn't post after we joined the healing purrayers for Edselsmom . We wented to the patio door and looked up at the sky, and Mommy said some werds help us along for a couple of minutes, then we all gotted quiet. Sammy and I and Trixie purred, and Mommy hadded her hands folded and she was all quiet. When we wented to bed later, Mommy put us all on her lap and put our paws together inside her hands and we said anofer purrayer for Edselsmom and a purrayer for Brandismom 'acause shes losing her job and needs to find werk.

Note to Mommy:
I hate getting my claws clipped. Just 'acause Sammy is a suck-up and you can bribe him wif kisses doesn't mean I am like that. I hate it. I need my claws. You drain my mighty power when you clip them. Also, if you clip my claws, what will I use for spikes when I finally figure out how to stand on the ceiling?

I'm sorry for flipping your phone off the night stand and into your head at 3am.
I'm sorry for pushing the water glass full of water off the nightstandat 3:15am. In my defense, if you are going to bring a glass full of water to bed at night, you should drink it.
Thank you for not being too mad at me and letting me lay on your head and then cuddle under the covers (and SHEESH, will you eifer turn off the air conditioner or turn off one of the 3 fans in the bedroom? There was ICE growing on my whiskers last night it was so cold in there).
Oh and YAY ME!!!! For the ferstest time EFURR, I turned off the beepy thing this morning ALL BY MYSELF. I pushed the right button and it stopped beeping! Usually Mommy has to help me push the button hard enuf, but I DID IT ALL BY MYSELF!!!!!!!!!

To any poodin out there who wants to try the Ham stinky goodness (or Pheasant or Trout), and you don't have a Wegmans nearby (it's a NY, NJ, PA, DC and VA thing) our Mommy is willing to send some to you (no charge, she says the cans are not expensive). They are the little Fancy Feast size cans. Just send Mommy an email wif your address (email is in our profile) and she will send a few cans out to you.
I killed one of Mommy's pillows. I werked all night to get a nice hole in it so that I could get some of the feathers out to eat, and I fink I werked too hard. There were about a squillion feathers on the floor when Mommy woked up this morning, and her pillow was just about flat. She said she will have to pick up all the feathers by hand when she gets home from werk tonight acause the carpet sucking monster would prolly break if she used it. After all that werk I did, I am not allowed to play in the bedroom today - she closed the door. it's NOT FAIR.

Has anycat seen this movie?
I fink that we has a baby one of those growing in our garden. I am worried, 'acause apparently there are "aliums" out there -Buddah has seen one in his own house! And then there was the UFO in our back yard that I pointed out to Mommy. I don't fink it was the pool, I fink that it landed and planted
THIS in our garden:
Doesn't it look like the fing in that ofer pikshur? I fink it's going to open up and EAT somefing - like a kitty cat or a woofie or a person even!
**NOTE FROM THE MOM: This is a red Poppy plant. I planted it last summer, but it stayed really small until about 2 weeks ago, and yesterday I noticed that it will bloom soon! I'm so excited!
*** IMPORTANT UPDATE*** Please go and visit Edsel - his Mom has been in the hospital since Thursday and he is furry furry worried.

I hadded a fun time at Gemini's purrfday party. I danced wif lots of purrty ladies, and hadded some stinky goodness, and hung out wif some of the guys. It was alot of fun
OH OH OH, I hadded SO MUCH FUN at the party. I danced ALOT, and there was ham, and nip, and stinky goodness, and shrimps, and ham, and....... um......HAM. Then we hadded a nap pile!! I was so happy, and Patches said I was a good dancer!!
Get that flashy thing out of my face please Mother. I did have a really good time at the party. I made a new Bestest Friend - Mittens!. She really has the most beautiful toes of many colors. We turtled and talked, and then we had a nap pile. It was great fun!
Saturday, May 20, 2006
It's Trixie's purrfday (and it would have been Norton's purrfday too) and also Scout's purrfday AND our new friend Gemini's purfday. They are bof 1 year old today. And they are bof striped kitties. They could be TWINS!!!
We has taken our bafs, combed our fur and putted on our dancing shoes for Gemini's party. We wrapped the purresents, packed some stinky goodness, our green blankie, some extra ham, some shrimps and some cosmic kitty nip.
Trixie is coming wif us for a while. She tires easily, but she wants to meet efurryone.
We are getting into place to transport ourselves to Gemini's party. Don't forget to say
"Transport me to Gemini's party" 7 times!
Transport me to Gemini's party
Transport me to Gemini's party
Trans-what? Oh goodness, I've nefurr done this, I hope I don't get lost. "Transport me to Gemini's party"
.................... See you all there!

MM: I know it's a day early, however, I will be out of town Saturday and wanted to wish my beautiful girl a Happy 18th Purrfday. It's kind of weird not celebrating 2 purrfdays this year, but we will have a wonderful party! You are old enough to vote now!
Happy Purrfday Gramma Trixie! We know you has been sad since Norton went to the Bridge, but it's your Purrfday! Mommy says that we can have cake and ice cream today if you want
Cake and Ice Cream! YAY. Happy Purrfday Trixie!
Thursday, May 18, 2006
And it's making ALOT of noise! Ferst, Mommy said it was a frog, but we has seen frogs on our patio, and they don't sound like that. Then she says it's Alleriges. We has never seen an Allergy, but if they make that kind of noise, then they should have to leave the house at night. Even laying on her face didn't make it stop. Then she gotted up at least a squillion times last night 'acause she said she couldn't breathe. We tolded her to stay home today, but she said she hadded to go to werk. I am so tired this morning that I fink I need 100 extra naps.
Also, in regards to the latest post by Magoo et al, WE are NOT the Meezers that gotted Kukka-Maria in trouble with the government in Canada. We are American. And we LOVE Kukka, we would nefurr do anyfing to get her in any kind of trouble. Kukka darling, if there's anyfing we can do to help you wif the Meezers in Canada, let us know. Between us and Cheysuli (who is going to be our next President, so she has all the contacts) we can get you out of any trouble.
Oh, and one last fing - Mommy maded a mistake about Trixie's Purrfday - it's actually on the 20th not today. Our daddy knows all those things and he tolded her it was the 20th. SO, we are not being mean by not saying Happy Purrfday to Trixie.
Wednesday, May 17, 2006
Well, if Sammy has his own jobs that he is so 'ascared of me taking, then I haf my own jobs too. Wif help from Trixie, I came up wif a list of fings that only I get to do:
1. It's MY job to check the baftub for bubbles 'afore we play tub hockey or tub soccer
B. It's MY job to check the food dishes and remind Mommy to fill them
3. It's MY job to make shur that the quilt is wam enuf to sleep under
4. It's MY job to make shur that Mommy's shoe laces are untied, oh wait, i mean tied efurry morning when she gets dressed
Trixie says that we has a "lack of leadership" now that Norton's gone, and we has to fill it, 'acause she's "re-tired" now. I hope there are no ofer jobs that we has to do, 'acause these jobs make me tired. Time to go check the food bowls and yowl to have them filled. *SIGH* - a kitty's werk is nefurr done.
Tuesday, May 16, 2006
When the beepy thing goes off in the morning, it's MY JOB to try and turn it off.
When your telephone rings, it's MY JOB to try and answer it, and then bring it to you, even if that means pushing it off the table.
When you go into the human litterbox room in the morning it's MY JOB to jump onto the windowsill and give you the morning weather report.
It's MY JOB to make shur that you don't forget how to do a proper hamstring rub when I'm laying next to you.
There's ofer jobs around here that Miles can do. Why does he haf to try and take over all my jobs?
Monday, May 15, 2006
Now that I'm 1 (and fank you for all the purrfday wishes last week), there are some things that I have seen and heard that I just don't get, so maybe some of you ofer poodins who have been around longer than me can help me wif some of these.
1. If I'm sitting out in the kit-chen by the food dishes, why does Mommy always say "oh, are you hungry?"
2. Why am I not allowed to jump into the hot air clothes thingy?
c. When the washer tub overflows (Mommy says it's bad pipes in the basement) why doesn't she come running when I'm down there screaming my head off? Why does she just yell at me to come upstairs?
4. Why doesn't she like it when I get up on the bafroom counter and chew on her toofbrush? She always tells me my breaf smells bad, and the toofbrush smells minty good.
d. Why, when I get perfekt-ly comfortable laying on her when she's sitting on the couch, does she have to get up and make me move?
5. Why can't I have ham efurry day?
OH, and Mommy broughted me home somefing really good from the rest-a-rant that she tooked her Mommy to for Mother's Day - PIG/COW - oferwise known as fillet mig-non. It was cow wrapped in pig. Mommy cutted some up for me and it was really really good. Trixie and Sammy didn't want any, so I gotted to eat all of it by myself. She said that the rest was hers for dinner tonight. Not if I have anyfing to say about it.
Sunday, May 14, 2006
Happy Mother's day Mommy. Even though you hate it when I stare at you all night, I only do it because I am making sure that you don't stop breathing or anything in the middle of the night. I don't want to have to use my CPR training. For your Mommy's day present, I will not stare at you all night. (MM's note: I guess old habits are hard to break. I'm sure if you actually didn't stare at me all night, I would miss it, I'm glad I didn't have to find out)
SAMMY Happy Mommy's day to the bestest Mommy in the werld. I love you so much and I'm glad that you letted me stay wif you when you finded me in the garden 2 years ago. Even though you hate it when I sleep on your face, I do it to be close to you. For your Mommy's day present, I will not sleep on your face all night. (MM's note: Well, you didn't sleep on my face ALL night, just 5 hours. I don't know what I would do if I could actually move my head during the night. I'm glad I didn't have to find out)
MILES Happy Mommy's day Mommy! I love you furry much, even though you hate it when I stick my tongue up you nose when you are sleeping. For your Mommy's day present, I will not lick the inside of your nose all night. (MM's note: Well, you didn't lick the inside of my nose ALL night, just 4 times. I don't know how I would react if I didn't wake up with a wet nose. I'm glad I didn't have to find out)
Happy Mommy's Day to all of the cat blogging Mommies, and to all ofer Mommies who take care of poodins, woofies, buns, and ofer critters!

So, I was looking out the patio door last night, and it was really windy and rainy. Mommy was trying to watch a hockey game on TV, but she said that the wind was making the satellite pikshur bad. I was looking outside and all of a sudden I saw this round thing flying through the air! It was flying right near our patio! Then it landed right near the edge of the patio! I whapped the window wif my paw, which got Mommy's attenshun, and she said "is the orange kitty out there? Oh dear, it's raining really hard, he should be home", but I just kept whapping the window. Mommy looked but could not see anyfing at first. Then she saw it too!!! She said "uh oh, look at that Sammy! It's a UFO!" A UFO?????? Holy poop! I heard about those things, and I don't want one in my back yard. I ran upstairs. After a little while, I came back downstairs and Mommy wented outside and picked up the UFO - I was really scared, because what if the tooked her away in it?? She broughted it right up to the patio and put it down there, and came inside and told me it was ok - it was just our plastic kiddie pool that turned upside down and flew away in the wind. That was really mean, getting me all worried like that.
Thursday, May 11, 2006
Miles would like to thank efurryone for the purrfday wishes. He's a little hung over this morning - too much fun and too much food yesterday.
We hadded some 'citement last night in the back yard. There's a woofie that lives behind us named Dutchess. She was outside running back and forth for no reason, as woofies do, when this THING waddled across the yard. It was really short and really fat and all brown. It was so fat that it's stomach dragged on the ground. Dutchess started barking really loud and getting all 'acited, and the fat thing kept waddling towards her. It got about halfway between our patio and their patio and stopped, and Dutchess ran forward really fast, then jumped really high into the air and yelped really loud. It was so funny. Mommy said that she has an "invisible fence" around her house so that she doesn't run away, and it "zaps" her when she gets too close. I gues she forgotted 'about it, 'acause she jumped really really high. It even scared the fat brown thing and it waddled away. Mommy said it was called a "woodchuck". I don't know what that is, does anyone have "woodchucks" in their yards?
Wednesday, May 10, 2006
Miles is 1 today! Happy Purrfday Miles!
It's my Purrfday???? And I get to pick my presents?? WOW.
This is what I want:
I hope all that ham doesn't upset your tummy more! How about some toys?
TOYS! Yes TOYS! I would like that!
OH BOY!!!! I'm so 'acited that I could..............BLURP.. Uh oh........ Sorry, I didn't mean to blurp in your face.
Thanks Miles. Maybe I'll get you some Pitr Pats or Feline Greenies for your fish breath.
You're the one that gived me the fish and shrimp stinky goodness for breakfast. Now, when do
we gets ham?
**UPDATE FROM MILES**
Efurryone teleport over - Mommy lefted out fish and shrimp stinky goodness and some ham.
Tuesday, May 09, 2006
Miles is still barfy. He barfed on Mommy's foot last night. She didn't even get mad. But that was the only time he was barfy all day, so I wonder if he's just looking for attention. He's all 'acited that tomorrow is his 1st purrfday. He wants a big ham loaf.
Mommy was following me all around this morning trying to get me to eat breakfast - but all I wanted to do was play wif the Cat Dancer toy. It's so much fun. She thinks I'm sick 'acause I don't eat in front of her. Sheesh, I don't get all worried that she's going to drop over in front of me just 'acause she doesn't eat in front of me all the time! She shur doesn't look like she's
an-or-x-ik to me. Then she rubs my tummy and tells me that I'm getting FAT. Well, which is it lady? Am I not eating enuf or am I fat? I swear, her brain is GONE.
Monday, May 08, 2006
We're finally home. We hadded to ride in the big metal monster again yesterday. For a LONG time. But we hadded a good time wif Daddy. Here's a pikshur of me in the skylight! It was really close to the ceiling - I could almost stand on the ceiling!
Oh, and the bedroom window was really low to the floor, so I could sit in it. And there was BIRDS in the tree right outside the window. BABY birds! I watched them for a long time - I even gave up a few naps to watch them. Sammy said I was a window hog 'acause there was only room for one in the window. So, after a while, I letted him look. He looked for a couple of minutes then wented back under the bed.
Sammy did not like going away at all. Once we gotted to Daddy's house, he ran and hid - ferst under the chair and then under the bed. Here's the only pikshur mommy could get of him. You can only see his eyes:
and WOW! Trixie actually POOPED on Mommy while she was driving! Trixie is not good in a carrier, she usually will just lay on top of it if Mommy lets her out, but for some reason, she started wandering around and to onto Mommy while she was driving, and then POOPED on her shirt! OH was Mommy MAD. She made Trixie get in the carrier wif us until we gotted to Daddy's - Mommy said it was ony 10 miles, but it seemed like furever. When we was leaving home, Mommy picked her up to carry her out to the metal monster, and she PEED on her, so she was really not happy, 'acause she hadded to go and change her clothes 'afore we even lefted.
Trixie was really good on the ride home - here's a pikshur of her enjoying the sun and the ride home:
We hadded a good time wif Daddy, and he says to say Thank You for all of your nice werds about Norton.
OH! I almost forgotted! Sammy tried to play vampire wif me and I gots a BIG OWIE on my neck - see!
It really hurted!
Trixie was not the only one to do gross things though. I was really 'ascared for a while, and my tummy felted yucky after I ated, so I barfed lots at Daddy's house. Mommy said I was "car sick" 'acause I barfed again when we gotted home. But I feel better today. 'Cept I still gots the big owie on my neck.
We are planning on just laying around on all the stuff that smells like us today.
Saturday, May 06, 2006
No, I'm NOT coming out from under this chair. And you can't make me.
OHOHOHOHOH. Low ceilings. I may just be able to stand on the ceiling! OH!!!! And low window sills, I can see BIRDS. We don't get many birds at home .
Ok, so I pooped on the mom while she was driving the big metal machine. so what?
Friday, May 05, 2006
It has been sad around here for a few days. Wif Grampa Norton gone, Mommy has been furry sad. We all have been furry grateful and humbled by all the nice werds that poodins and people (and bunnies too!) have said about Grampa Norton.
Mommy gotted Sammy and me a new toy the ofer day, a Cat Dancer toy. She putted it up on the patio window for us, and we like playing wif it. We were playing wif it last night, and it maded Mommy laugh, and she tickled our bellies and we wiggled all over the place. We askded her if it was ok to laugh yet, and she said that it was ok. But Sammy felt kind of bad about having fun, and he gotted upset and barfed on the rug. Mommy gotted a new monster to clean the rugs last weekend, so she gotted it out. From what I can tell, the new monster pees on the rug, then swirls around in circles, then sucks efurryfing up and then it starts beeping like crazy. It's kind of gross. She says it's called a Spot Bot. All I know is that it leaves a wet spot on the rug, and we are not allowed to leave wet spots on the rug in our house. I fink it should have to move out.
After Sammy barfed, he ran upstairs to the people's littlebox room and jumped on the windowsill. Mommy tolded me to make shur he was ok, so I did. Mommy said I was a furry good boy, so she gived me some HAM. Then she tooked all of us into the bedroom and we had a nap pile for a little while.
I fink that we are gonna to go visit our daddy this weekend, so we has to go in the big metal monster for a LONG time - mommy says almost 5 hours. We plan on singing along to the radio at the top of our lungs for the whole time. Mommy should like that.
Thursday, May 04, 2006
I would like to thank efurryone for all of their very kind words for my brofur Norton. And also thank you to efurryone who visited him at his Rainbow Bridge site (link is in our blogroll) and sent a card or note. Mommy let us see all of the cards and notes, and she read all of the comments to us last night. I miss him furry much, but I know that he is happy and playing wif Ralphie. I know that he will come for me when it is my time - the V-E-T says that in people years, I'm almost 88. But I still have my girlish figure and still weigh what I did when I was a youngster - 7 lbs. Norton and I were always kind of small.
What was I talking about? Oh, yes, Thank you all again for all of your thoughts, purrayers and headbutts. They mean the world to us and to our Mommy and Daddy. Mommy says it's really nice to know that there is a whole cat-munity out there that understands and doesn't criticize and say "oh, it was just a cat". Cats are people too.
Wednesday, May 03, 2006
You came into our lives on a warm summer evening in 1988. Abandoned with your brothers and sister on the side of a road in New Haven, Ct. One of you ran into the woods, another went with another person who happened upon the scene, and you and your sister came home with us. Maybe you were 5 weeks old. How cute you both were curled up together in the bathroom. We could not part with you. 2 years later, we got you a brother. You were mother to him, as your sister was just too jealous at first. Norton and Ralph, 2 inseperable friends.
You were the smart one. I knew you understood me when I spoke to you - and you proved it one day. Walking around the house with some newly washed socks in your mouth, you heard me say "Norton, put those back in the basket" and you turned around, walked back to the basket and dropped them there. That was the last time you ever let on that you understood me.
I think your Daddy and I lost 8 lives when you almost died from crystals in your urine. God led us to Dr Mishricki, who lived right down the street and we never knew it until that afternoon. You were hours away from going to the bridge and he was a miracle worker. He gave us 14 more years with you.
I think you spent somewhere around 5,000 nights curled up on the top of the couch behind me, punching me in the head every 20 minutes or so, and then putting your head on my shoulder and going to sleep.
Stealing cookies. Licking all the powdered sugar off the donuts in the box. Your love of bread. Your fear of the grass. Sitting in the middle of your circle of toys and crying when Ralphie went to the bridge. Mothering the next generation, Sammy and Miles.
Sweet, gentle Norton. Always wanting to be pet, but not wanting to be held. You preferred to just be near and touch with a paw or two. Always your daddy's best buddy.
You spent your lifetime purring non stop. When you did stop, we knew you were sick.
Ralphie came calling for you at 4:4oam this morning. Go and run and play with your little brother, your best friend. Keep an eye on your sister Trixie and come for her when it is her time. Watch over the little ones and any more that may come after. Let me see you in the shadows on occasion, as it is always harder for those of us left behind. Wait for Daddy and me. We will come for you when it is our time, and we will all cross the Bridge together into forever. You were more loved than you know, and the hole in our hearts will never be filled.
Rest well little puddin pop.

Sitting on the table next to the bed and throwing efurrything off it - and into Mommy's head while she's sleeping.
Then, when she wakes up, getting back into bed and snuggling her so that she won't get mad.
Then doing it all again once she goes back to sleep.
Know what else is fun? Going down into the dungeon where the litterbox is and yowling really really loud, running really fast up the stairs and through the house and then back down the stairs again. It makes Mommy thing that there is a bug of somefing down there, and she comes looking for it.
But you know what the bestest fun is? sticking your paw in a dish of ice cream while she's eating it. And then when she give it all to you, walking away.
MILES It's a good thing that someone packed snow shoos and warm blankets and stuff. Lookit where I is now!
MILES Today I am thankful for one thing: MY HEAD IS A LOT LESS TILTY!!!!! It's still tilty sometimes, but it's almost back to nor...
