Please mark your calendars!!! Mazie Grace and Finn Roseberry are gittin' marrieds on December 22nd...that is if the world don't end on the 21st! More details 'bout the Bridal Shower and the Bachelor Party will be comink soons!
Five years ago today, our lives changed forevers...it all started with this. Mommy nearly killeded Fergie which led her to take Fergie to the vet...that's where mommy meeted Freddy Astaire Graves III. Today is Freddy's 5 year Whiskers & Purrs Gang anniversary!
Freddy is a good boy...'cept when he terrorizes poor Mrs. Lilly White. We hope he will quite doin' that but...we still loves him and glad to call him our brother.
Hi. My name is Samuel L Jackson Graves III...my friends and mommy call me Sammy for short. I'm the newest member of the Whiskers & Purrs Gang. Mommy rescued me back in the summer. I had been either leaved behind when my family moved or just dumped. Either way, my family didn't love me enough to even care if I was safe and okay.
I heard on the street that there was a woman that lived in a white house that kept suppers outside for homeless kitties. I found her house but I was very real cautious 'round her...she might be mean to me. I would wait in the bushes for her to put the food out and, once she had gone back inside her house, I would go eat it ALL.
One day she put my foods inside of a metal lookin' box thing...I didn't care...I was starvink. I walked inside the box and...BANG...a door closed. I was more mad than skeert...mad that she would trick me like that. See...I just knew that beans could not be trusted. She taked me somewhere and they poked and squeezed on all of my stuff...and drained out my bloods...how ROOD! The vet called mommy and said that I was healthy and had already had my big boy operation.
So mommy came and gotted me. She taked me to the inside of the white house...it was nice and cool...and quiet...I got to be in what she called the "kitchen" with her and eat my suppers...lots of suppers. I made sleeps for almost 24 hours straight. And then...I got to meet my new family...Mazie and Joey and Elsie and Harry and Buddy and Holly...and what seemed like a million other cats...I swear I ain't never seened so many cats in my life! I innerdooced myself to everybody and gave every single cat a gentle headbutt. And...believe it or not, we have all been friends ever since.
So...in the US, we're celebratink Thanksgiving Day today. It ain't 'bout a big feast or goin' shoppink or anything like that. Here's what all of us in the Gang is thankful for...today and every day:
A safe place to make sleeps that is dry and clean and warms
Not havin' to worry 'bout somebody or some animal tryin' to hurt us
Good, healthy suppers to eat when we is hungry...and even when we ain't hungry...
A very real good vet that is smart that we trust
Lots and lots of good friends to snuggle with...I like to cuddle up to Elsie. Me and her is friends.
A mommy that loves us more than anything or anybody in the whole wide worlds
A never ending supply of kisses, belly rubs and hiney scratches
Today as you is celebratin' Thanksgiving Day, please be grateful for all you have. And please say a prayer for all the little animals that are not as fortunate as you and me...
Today is Monday and it's time for a long overdue Mazie Monday post! I am happy to report it is almost time for Thanksgivink! It's that time of year when my mommy thinks she's Martha Stewart and she tries real hard to cook funky stuff in the kitchen. This year she has been drivin' us all crazy 'bout pumpkins. You can read more 'bout that here and here and here. Most people don't know that pumpkins is real good for kitties! It's full of lots of good stuff that make you feel good and healthy...and...if you have the poops, it can help clear it up. And...if you got the opposite problems, it can help you make poop! It's a miracle!
So kitties like me with inflammatory bowel disease sometimes see lots of benefits to eatin' pumpkins. The problem in our house is that none of us like the canned kind...GROSS! I mean...how tastey can it be if you can't watch your mommy workin' like a dog to make it for you? So, over the weekend, mommy roasted a pumpkin and fixed some fresh puree...and peoples, I gots to tell you...it tasted like a little bit of heaven on a plate! I eated it...and eated it...oh yeah, and then I eated some mores! It's SO delicious!!!
So nows, mommy is gonna have to grow a GIGANTICAL pumpkin patch next summer so I can watch her work like a dog to fix me my tastey treat!
I guess that's it for now...I hope you all are havin' a good day. Remember on Mazie Monday, your beans have to stop what they is doin' when you walk into the room and start hummin' "Hail to the Chief".
Very truly yours,
Mazie Grace Graves Social Director & Finn Roseberry's Womans Whiskers & Purrs Gang
